The Cairo Tixks is the only paper ever published in Illinois which had a branch in Xew York and a place upon the file of every respectable hotel within the city. The position of Cairo, located as it is, at the junction of the two mle-hty rivers, the Ohio and Mississippi, and at the head of navigation daring the winter season, and times of low water, is, we believe, universally conceded as destined to be one of most important commercial points on this continent. Indeed, it may be set down as ' -being the greatest natural gateway in the world, equalled only in natural advantages by the Isthmus of Suez and Panama, bat in its surroundings surpassing either or both. Full 200,000 people step from off the palatial - ef eeweiwoT therirnV MBeA'apoii vuV ionet per" jcw , and a corresponding amount of freight is yearly unloaded r here, and when the Railroads, now projected, am veyed. - anaVwhich will bebailt within theuext two years, join the Illinois Central Railroad, running North, and the Mobile k Ohio Railroad, running South, Cairo will, of necessity, , become the great entrepot of the staples of the South, and the radiating point from whence the great East will look far and receive its supplies. - fur agent and corresponding editor, A. B. Still as, will rail upon the leading business men of New York, in person, and solicit advertising patronage. The Tikes Is not a political journal. Its speciality is to promulgate commercial Intelligence, foster, business, interests and disseminate the latent and fullest news of the day. Upon every incoming traia of the Mobile k Ohio Railroad it ., meets the eye of the Southern merchant on. his way East . to purchase, and is supplied to passengers by steamers Northward bound, wh.-n they reach Columbus, Kentucky. As an advertising ttiedium, therefore tlie intelligent -' readerwill readily realize the importance of the Times. And the fact of its being so -prominently and generally, J circulated in the hotels of Tew York, renders it an avall able kome medium, through which the Jtftelgn merchant, on bis arrival in the city, can see the invitations of the most enterprising merchants' to call and examine their " goods.'

Which Woukl not oruld not appreciate its grand. design, but foolishly imagined that no interests oiwht to be subserved except their own. Pev- cral insignificant, and some considerable cities, asserted each its claim to be made the Northern terminus, regardless of the great fact that the Road would bo comparatively a feeble and un profitable one unless extended until it should become, by its connections, a part of the great National Railroad System of the country. But it was the good fortune of the enterprise that k had at the influential and controlling head of its direction and management, minds of large comprehension and sagacious wisdonjj men df determined purpose,. -. of , indomitable energy and" fertile in expedients, who could wield power, means and influence, and who were possessed" of (faith;inrthe ultimate success of their enterprise 'which nothing could shake or daunt. Prominent among these was Judge Miltou Brown, of Mobile, the President of .the Company, who has been connected with the j road ever since it ran from Mobile a short dis lance, ont. into thev woods. lie- has watched over the road and been the master spirit of its being, through aH ;4rials, discouragements nird oppositions, with his eye ningle to its sole interests and his hand hostile to the schemes of every clique or party which strove to per- Yert its plans from the chief design, or weaken in any respect, is operations. He has fought them all consistently wtd -successfully from the beginning to "thV" present day, "and it is to his ability and uttter devotion more ' than to anything !- else that the Company is to-day iedebted for the auspic ous future, which smiles upon and premises to rewaru mcir paueuce auu meir worn. Thi3 road had been but just carried through "to completion, and operations on it had but just been fairly commenced, when the war in terposed aa arbitrary injunction on its success ful career. Parts of k were, in tbe progress of hostilities, totally destroyed, and throughout its Whole length, through hard usage and neg lect of repairs, it come into a sad condition. " When the war broke out there were in the possession of tlt3 Company over one hundred locomotives, and a correspondingly large amount of other rolling. Btock. This was used and abused in the interest of the ruling author ities of government at will, so that , at the close of the war, there were left to be returned nominally sixteen locomotives, of which num ber but twelve were iu a tit. condition for use. Of cars there wore so few that only a through train, on alternate days, could be made up. This, however, was but a trifle iu the vast sum of incubus which rested upon the. road and impeded the resumption of travel a-id traffic. The bond holders of tha road began to press their claims for payment of amounts due, before the road was capable of earning a penny to replenish , its exhausted treasurv. The States of Tennessee and Ken- tuckyx threatened hasty legislation, which, if carried through, would cripple the road almost beyond, .recovery. The petty local ambitions and jealousies which at its earliest stages had contended for notice ami favor, again sprtirjg into noisy and: virulent ljfe, hoping in the new exigencies of affaira to be able to accomplish, by bribes, falsehood and protestation, what they. Jiad before signally failed to do. Govern ment, too, demanded the use of the line for its .own purposes, which interrupted and delayed rjrojgres very sensibly. It was fortunate, in all these complications of embarrassment, that the same able and incorruptible officer who had carried' it through its pre vious perils, till lived to serve, as he alone could, the interests of the Company. With the ' same prudence,' vigor and con fidence aa before, he again went to work, and after an absence from home of more Uaa four mouths, lie has but lately returned, having succeeded in averting every immediate danger iu conciliating all enemies who were made enemies either through ignorance of the whole" truthi. or through the-willful misrepresentations f intercstegl, : foes in strengthening the hope and faUh'of, all who are interested iu the suc cess of this great work of national utility in obtaining the'necesaary'amount of rolling stock to put the road in a condition to meet the re- t - quicefaents " of WaflTe, and, to sum up all in con clusion, successful every move andMioasnre immediately calculated to put this road on its feet, "'r more correctly on its wheels, at the earliest Jiate" land. beyond the contingency of essential harm from its much talking -and much maneuvering enemies.. , . -Twenty locomotivestwenty-five new "pis" aeager cars, and a largo unmbef j.of freight cars have beeu purchased.

The Times' "Wash ington special dispatch says: A prominent member of the Senate Finance Committee has announced his intention of urging upon Con gress tbe reduction of Government taxes fully one hundred millions ot dollars. He alleges that the revenue, after this reduction shall have been made, will be sufficient to pay the expenses of tho Government, besides leaving a large sum to be applied to the public debt. Brig. Gen. Duncan will assume command of all tho colored troops in the vicinity of Wash-: ington. In making up the statistics of the Treasury Department, the fact is discovered, that in the fiscal years ending June, respectively in 1862, 1803 and 1864, notwithstanding that vro had over one million ot men in the field, and these withdrawn froth labor, we exported to foreign countries two aud three -quarters times more wheat, and eight times more barn and bacon than in 1858, 1859 and 18C0. Nearly all of tho privates in the Veteran Re serve Corps have voted under tbe late order, of the War Department to leave the service, and all in one regiment bavo been mustered out ex cept four men. A large number of the officers, however, remain in tlie service. Most of them are utterly incapacitated from following the pur suit of their former business avocations as found from the official reports now coming to the War Department and other sources. These, of course, desire to remain in tho service, and in order to make place for them in the regular army, it it enaii ue determined to merge vet eran reserves into that organization, an act is proposed to be submitted to Congress, to bo enacted into a law,, which will provide for the admission of the veteran reserve officers and to retain their present grade and rank a near as can be upon a certificate, from a Board of examiners, ot competency ana ntness tor tneir positions.'- 'h;is iHKH?rira a secretary of War favors this plan.
