Railroad had been dashed to the ground
by the removal of the line of that road
farther eastward, and he saw nothing lor

bring a population to that Hection that

Col. A. H. Douglas was then called
upon to address the assemblage, which he
did at length in an eloquent apoecli.

deacribed the advantages of the sit

of the productions of the immediate coun

all its drawbacks, has produced three
quarters ot a bale of cotton to every acre
planted iu that staple. Being thoroughly
posted as to the country around. Col.
Douglas described the situation whore it
is proposed to ereet the mills. It is at a
point on the creek where there was once
a lninber and grist mill, the re

them of great volume, pour into the creek,
and it is the opinion of scientific persons
who have examined the matter that there

beaides supplying a hundred tan vats.
During the course of his remarks
Col. Douglas detailed a very re
markable fact which is of great
importance to archeologlsts, and
especially those who are interested
in the early history of this portion of the
Htate. About a mile and a half from the

dition to this there is, for several va.ds Arkansas centered at Cairo rather than at
along the stream, the remnant of I Memphis. If at Cairo, thev all stand

(Btnpauy to no one not directly and posi
; tlvely interested in the growth and pros
perity of Memphis. In behalf of Mr.
Brinklev's offer, it may be said, as It
should nave been said in behalf of Mr.
Greenlaw's some months ago, that all his
property and interests are in this town or
on tho line of this railroad; and that Mem

with himself In his control of it. No offer
made for the slock proposes lo complete

while all agree to do it in time for that of
next year. A few months longeror short

and sell-interest should dictate a prefer

ship of her stock in that moat important
of all our railroads. Cairo is growing an
rapidlyasMeuipbis. Indeed, whileRadical
legislation and corruption have retarded
the growth of the latter city during the
past three years, the former has been
steadily increasing in population and
trade. "One of the improvements that
will most advance her prosperity, is the
Cairo and Fulton Railroad passing cen
trally through Arkansas, from northeast
to southwest by the Capital of that State,
beginning at the confluence of the Ohio
and the Mississippi rivers, and ending , .'
Fulton, above the Red river rafts. Look
at the map and you will find it will make
a larger extent of country tributary to its
line than any other road thai can be built
n that alate, II it were now completed.
Cairo would compete with Memphis for
all the trade of Arkansas; and not only
Memphis, but the Memphis and Charles
ton, and the Memphis and Louisville
Railroads would all feel the tnflnencoof
so important a rival line of travel and
commerce. It were idle to doubt that
this railroad will be completed, at least as
far as Little Rock, during the noxt two
vrtara tor evcrv imnortant line leading
( fc.om ,he Ohio or the Mississippi, eastward
the able aud instructive report of Mr.
Trask, Secretary of tho Chamlcr of Com
merce, proves this leyond all cavil; and
Ahe trade of Arkansas will lie subject to
- l.,. H..,H rul,. There is no o-itlet for It
uot pass into hands thai may bo even
more interested in the t'airo and Fulton
line? The company now controlling the
Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad mav
possibly become interested in the Cairo
and Fulton road. If they slso get control
of the Memphis aud Little Reck road
what will la?eoihe of th Memphis inter

that this ro el would be our inaiu relianoe

ertlnic against liie trade of Memphis. We I

tion. But this has proved a deloataai for
President of tho entire linofroji Memphis
to Louisville. Is one of tho largest lessees
of the Mississippi Central; owning, it is
said, a third in that lease. He aud Mc
Comb, aud those interested in that lease,
took the road to make m.i .-. out of it,
and they are interested in the road's get
ting all the business it can. Any man of
sane mind would do Hie same ihimri and

the line from Memphis to Hiimlsildl,

This bleeding of Memphis through ono
ot her owa railroads suits Louisville, too;
4pr neither as a stockholderin the Louis

What its Condition is and How the
Trip is Made.
Through to .Arkansas Capital
Twenty-two Hours.
LrrTLK Rock, Septembor 25.
Editort Appeal: One who ha never en
acted the role of an Arkansas traveler, can
have but a faint Idea of this Slate, and
in every instance, a tour of obsorvatiou
will counteract the prejudioe.engendered
by gueslppy tetter writers who think lhat
like poor i'addy, she is legitimate game to
poke fun at. With more mikes of naviga
ble rivers than any other State, and as
rich lands as tho suu shines upou, Arkan
sas to-day, were it not for ihe incubus
which weighs her down, in the shape of
taxation and Radical rule, would be the
most thrlfly and desirable State in the
Union. She is, however, a prey to carpet
baggers of the vilest description. It is
their paradise. They grow fat upon the
toils of the white man and the negro.
They spread out their brauches In every
direction uud suck the lifebiood of the
State. But wo diil not Intend lo speak of
varmints when we started this epistle to
the Mempblans.oniy toglve a short sketch
qf ourovertand trip to this city, wbioh was
accomplished in less than twenty-four
hours. Leaving Memphis at 6 a.m., on a
beautiful morning, we crossed Big Mnddy
on the steamer Nevada, aud jumped upon
the westward bound train, of which our
friend Lutson is conductor. Under
his care we I rapidly steamed
along through swamp and forest,
over well constructed bridges and past
towns and villages reaching the termini
of the eastern division of the road in
about throe hours from Memphis. It is
easy to sit in our well appointed offices
and growl at the managers of the Mem
phis aud Little Rock Railroad for not
pushing that great work through, but let
all those who take an interest in the work
make a trip over the road and see what
has been done. Let them remember that
when the war closed not a pound of Iron,
not a bridge nor a railroad tie was to be
found upou this road, that its track had
grown up with woods more difficult to
clear away than the original forrest. that
two or three years of most extraordinary
high water has prevailed, that the road aa
well as its officers were rendered bank
rupt by the war, that the people of Mem
phis have not aided the work one aingle
dollar since the w ar, let them remember
all thoso things, and then see what has
been done, and our word for it, all grum
bling will cease, or justice Is as scarce
among our people as Ii was wont to be In
our courts. The work at l'Anguille Is
about to Ia3 pushed forward with a vim.
Two spile drivers, one at each
side of the river, will he set
to work immediately and a day and night
force kept busy until the bridge hi com
pleted. From thence almost to Derall's
Bluff tho road is graded, and only wants
a tew finishing touches to be ready for the
Iron. At l'Anguille we took onr seat in
one of CoL" Chidester's elegant Concord
coaches drawn by four horses, and-were
w hirled through the woods over a hard,
dry road to Clarendon, a distanoo of thirty-five
miles, at the rate of eight miles
per hour, which of itself gives a better
idea of tho condition of the road than if
wo wore to dwell upon its features for
hours. Some eight or ten passengers
wore on lioard, and the three changea of
horses gave us ample time to test the vir
tues of the different waters upou the
route. Col. Cbidester has been the con
necting link between civilization aud the
wilderuess of forest beyond the great
river for over thirty years. Ills stage
lines traverse the far west for thousands
of miles, and he is known under different
cognomens from tho Atlantic to the slopes
of the Pacific. We know him as Col.
Cbidester, but heard him cilled Col.
"Chid," "Old Chid," "Stage Driver,"
and one old lady who stood in a
disirway as the s"tago rolled np to

whether she would have resgnized him

TrrB MKMPFfu Thbatkr. Terenee's
Oath was the piene at the Theater last
night. It was admirably put upon the
stage. Generally, the actors and actresses
acquitted themselves well. Considering
Iheir brief acquaintance with our theater
going public, and the fact that all about
them Is strange and new, they did well,
and supported Miss Josephine Fiddes and
Mr. Douiinlck Murray handsomely. Of
the acting of the former it is only fair to
say that it was spirited aud admirable.
Her brogue was not quite up to the real
Irish score, but ber appearance and man
ner made up fully for this defect; and her
"Oonah O'Hallaran " was, barring a little
over-dressing, indeed a too stagey sort of
dressing, a repreaentation well worth
looking at. Douiinlck Murray's "Ter
ence Finlgau " was one of the most truth-
ful portrayals of Irish character we have
over witnessed. His brogue was " Irish j
to the life; " clear and musical, enough so
to convey an idea of the indescribable :
charm that the brogue really gives to the j
voice. A sterling actor, Mr. Murray does
not conawsconii to tne aeptns orj- loreuee
or Barney Williams, both whom are re-
sponsible for a popular conception of the
irlsn ouaraeter loiauy si variance with
what it really is. Mr. Murray, as " Flni
gan," presented all the llghte and shades
of an Irish peasant's lite his wit, his hu
mor, his deep pathos, his heartiness, his
fidelity, his religious fervor snd, love of
country. His wit was sparkling or inci
sive, as occasion called for, while his
heart, like thatwif a true Irishman, was
always in the rifciit place. Murray, if he
shall eontinse in the Irish lino, will de
stroy th effectiveness of those who pre
tend to fill the places of Powers and Uol
llnsi and while he will reform, the stage
will lift the Irish character and name
from the wallow in which it is usually
and disgracefully depicted.

in the shape of a triumphal procession by
the grand combination composing the en
ertainment of the Crescent City Circus,
now located on the Orphan Asylum lot,
hich will surpass in brilliancy anything
if tbo kind ever before attempted in Cin
cinnati. The company conaec ed with
his establishment is tfie best ever had in
this city, and needs only to be seen to be
appreciated. A sensation will be created
in the evening, when the entire company
appears in elegant costumes and gorgeous
trapping, shields, lances, banners, and all
tbo desirable accessories of the grand
spectacle of the Tournament, or Field of
the Cloth ot Gold, requiring I it v Ladies
and Gentlemen at one time in the ring.
The tilting for rings, the com bats, throw
ing of the javelin and the meeting of the
While and Black Knights to the crowning
of the victorious Knight, la so beatifully,
faithfully represented, that the audience
is carried back to the daya of chivalry.
Never was anything before offered in the
arena so beautiful or so grand. The effect
is magnificent, and the mammoth tent
with its brilliant and numerous jets of
gas, its parti-colored decorations, the in
spiring music of a capital orchestra, and
the various Knights arrayed in armor of
burnished steel, with their steeds equip
ped with gilded ornaments and appro
priate trappings, and thoroughly trains.!
and disciplined to the sports of the arena,
cannot fail to elicit the liveliest enthu
siasm. Master Wooda Cook electrifies his audi
ences by the manner in which he per
forms. Utterly regardless of danger, he
accomplishes the most perilous feats, and
wins the loudest applause from thousands
of his admirers. The original and difficult
feat, the "trtpple bar act," by the Wil
sons, will also be introduced on this occa
sion. Too much praise cannot be awarded
to the Company for the splendid leaping.
The double somersaults of Lewis Wilson,
the extraordinary leaping of Mr. McCar
thy, and the varied and graceful evolu
tion of this mammoth alliance and great
double-challenge troupe are the very po
etry of lite and motion. The principal act
of Mr. Barclay was superb, and he gives
Eromise of being a leading ornament in
ia prnfeaslon. Indeed, the whole per
formance is so commendable that too
much cannot be said in its favor; and we
advise all our readers to embrace the op
portunities that will Im offered this week
to wltneas one of the finest combinations
that haa ever visited this part of the country.
