TO OtR NEW YORK. READERS.
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

and a corresponding amount of freight is yearly unloaded
r here, and when the Railroads, now projected, am veyed.

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

Road would bo comparatively a feeble and un

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

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

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

Yert its plans from the chief design, or weaken

them all consistently wtd -successfully from the

Thi3 road had been but just carried through

hostilities, totally destroyed, and throughout

and abused in the interest of the ruling author

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

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

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

that the same able and incorruptible
officer who had carried' it through its pre
