At the recent railroad olootlou in Terry

voted'upon: Shall iliecounty subscribe
$HH),o00 to tho IJeUeville & Southern Illi

According to our understanding of the

fact is manifested alike by the vote cast,
and by the order ot the oourt calling
The yoto on the Cairo & St. Juls rail

alone. Tlio votes cast for tlio other pro.

Tlu law under which that question
was held declares that questions of county

only proposition submitted, and 099, out

scarctly have been galnsayed. Now
that Is precisely tlio light In which tho
matter Is to bt . l.wed. Kach proposition

of roads to Cafro, are driven to Capo

Cairo' Is their natural source of supply,
and that tho Cairo fc Fulton road again

If this trade (which, by tho way, Is
greater than all other country trado con
centrated on Cairo) were tho only end to
bo gained by tho rebuilding of the roud,
wo should noTTfvJuco m much solicltudo
respecting tho result of tlio election to be
held in this city next Monday. That
election not only determines whether
Cairo shall enjoy this trade, but whether
Cairo shall securo tho terminus of tho
road, and through the road, connection
with St. Louis, tho Iron Mountain and
the great Southwest. II will determine,
in short, whether Cairo shall bo prompt

or whether the future shall be as tho im

Tho question of tlio most vital import
ance to tho Interests of Cairo will be an
swered at tho polls oirthelOth lust. That
tins roau is an actual, urgent necessity
to tho growth of our city and tho pros
perity of her citizens It Is scarcely worth
while for us to state. Every Intelligent,
thinking man knows and admits, that In
tho proposition of Col. Allen, an opportu
nity Is ofl'ered our city to become the
starting point of what Is destined to
become one of the greatest thorough
fares of the continent, and the point
to which will bo tributary all that vast
tract of country known as tho "great
Southwest." Southend. Missouri will be

Is finished to Charleston, and when tho

if wu havo any desire for tlio prosperity
of our city. Then go to the polls and voto

Tho following, from tho Philadelphia
Evoning 'Herald, ' aro well expressed
truths which no man who has watched
the progress of political o vents of lato
years can fall to appreciate:
Thero has not been siuco tho 'war tho
enunciation of any lino of policy, Indi
cating tho possession of oven tho most
ordinary migaclty or wisdom. Both
houses of congress seem to totter on from
ono blunder to another, cither regard
less of or blind to tlio consequences,
Tho perplexities of Penelope seem to sur
round each succeeding congress, and tho
act of legislation spun at oue session has
to be unravelled at tho next. There Is
no fixed policy, save that asplrltof mad
ness and revenge shall rulo tho hour, und
a blind sectional hute.shall originate and
perfect legislation without regard to con
sequences either now or licreuflur. Tuko
the whole history of tho legislative meas
ures of the radicals since tney havo been
in power, and who can point to n sIiirIo
one Unit can Jive lu history as distin
guished by wisdom or forecasting sagaci
ty? "When a revolution la over," says a
modern lecturer of some distinction, "a
government must bo founded to gather
in tho fruits and to heal tho wounds of
tho struggle. And tho only men who
can found It aro those who remain mas
ters of tho revolution." But here wo
havo seen tho close of a revolution origi
nated by fanaticism, whero tho fanatics
themselves had not the sagacity to gath
er iu the legltlninto fruits, where they
havo refused to heal tho wouuds of the
struggle, and where they actually havo
not developed intellect enough to remain
masters or tho revolution.
Among nil the men who in the pro
gress of the events of tho lastclght years
have become notorious, thero Is not ouo
of sulllclent merit to entitle him to tho
namo of statesman. Idealists, they havo
uiuiiu uveryuuni; suusniiury to tuo au
surd and wild theory of equality. Ab
stractionists, they have proposed
schemes wilder than those originating
lu Swift's famous Academy of .Lagado.
The crazy fools iu that famous institu
tion who wanted to extract sunbeams
from cucumbers, to calcine Ice from gun
powder and spin silk out of cobwebs,
were much wiser men than those who
have assembled as our law makers iu
Washington during tho last eight years.
