OTTAWA FWSE TRADER; SATURDAY, JANUARY 27. 1883.
BY RAIL. frvJ Land ol Know to l.nd of " With low Cairo, Memphis. liof a and Vlcksbur;. J Lad bcm luxurntlng lor nearly two wanks in Ottawa, the longest at any ono time, thai I uad been off the rail in nearly lea yeftaT But at lat the time came when I bad to go, and leave the country of foxes and fox hunters for the greaser and the mocking bird. As th tram passed through Hutland, I scanned the bluffs in the vicinity ot Sam Parr's, expecting to see the "pack" and ram with the young fox hunter out for an airing, (?) but they were not to be seen. So I settled down in a beat and began to ponder over the long journey 1 was about to undertake. At a rough estimate nearly ten thousand miles of travel before I would again reach the pralne state. But what is ten thousand miles io this age of the nineteenth ccn tury.when steam and electricity have made . , Y .. D(nn4 An4 m tnouBana nines its uuv rn-p. when the Keely motor is in running order, who knows but ten thousand miles will be ,wri rrrn Ions. When thut' time cornea, what a boom the spirit of progress will have. Then it will be a common thing tor the Ctilcngomiu to say, "I have an engagement in 't rlsoo' to morrow, i think I will take that evening train which will get me there for breakfast." Or in Mir day we may hear the New Yorker say, "Business oflmporlance calls me to Chicago; I will tnko the late train and breakfast ill that city by the lake." And then should the voice of Uio people de mand a change in the administration as indicated by the last election a few drops f water in this new motor, a change ol t-Dgincers, and pmlo, the whole govern ment train goes spinning off into some other section of the country and we have n new administration in It as than no time. Bnt all these things crowd uppermost in wy thoughts while journeying from the "lands of snow to lands of sun, or to meet "loveliest summer robed in green," a? tamo writers say of tho south, when visit ing it for the first time. But first impres sions are like first love, apt to be delu sive. And yet, sometimes we iiro mistaken ib this. I once heard a mature and ex perienced belle say that sho had learned more from her first again: fu cn-ur than from any ot her numerous subsequent ex periences. So In the same way a tourist's first impressions of a new country may be worth more on account of their Ireshness than the observations ol those in whom familiarity has bred indifference. Almost any traveler feels more competent to write p a country in a book after a days sojourn than after a longer stay. But these are aly fleeting impressions jotted down for the benefit ot the readers of the Fbkk Thaoeu, while the writer is enjoying the lnxury of u fullmaii palace car. And now we reach the city at the end ot the brulec fit. Iuis. It is not the sunny south nor even a chip from its ragged edge, and if we are to judge from feeling ana ap iicarancc. the whole business must b I p turned round and we are journeying to wardu the north iole. Cold t Whew ! It teems like Greenland's icy mountains with bail, rain and snow, and the ther iameter way below the goose egg point Bat we thank our stars that our stay in Bt Louis U of short duration, and it may be well to state that it could not have been any too short in that dead town. Taking the evening train on the Cairo short line we reached "Egypt," now calltd Cairo, in lime fur breukfast.where wo found the natives all shook up. 1 shall never forget my first visit to Cairo. It was along in spring time, and the levee had given way and flooded the town. It looked like a city on tilts or rafts. As the train drew toward the station, I could see families perched on the roofs of their houses and going grimly out upon tho ocean like scene be fore them. In another place a man was paddling a a raft from his bouse to the barn with food lor his stock; at another point the cows and hogs ttoort on knolls high aud dry, while off in on opposite di rection families were preparing to vacate their homes oil u riift. But this tiiuo it was tho reverse. The wcuther w as colder than "fit. Agnes Eve," and even a sheet of the beautiful bad shrouded the landscajHi. The natives always seem to be in trouble, nod this time they were "all shook up," to nso the expression of a (ieui.en of the town. They experienced a five second shock of earthquake some time during the night, the effect of which took away their appetite for brcaklat. We left Cairo, crosfed ttic Ohio, and landed over in Old Kentucky. It was damp aud cold ; a mist v. w falling from a leaden sky ; In the fields leitu cows hugged the shelter of bams and fences, aud at the utation lean KentuckUns fhivcred, with their hands iu their pockets. The few vis ible geese that we saw ctuid on one leg itnd warmed the other, as only a gooe can. But what a strong resemblance jc tween these anserine motittpod und the human bipeds who stand motionless look ing at the train as it move from the sH tion. They aro a queer M. nr.' , .,. traio glides away from tlnj dt-poi y,u j.k back and sec them still mulioulcKS with their eyes on the departing train. But what strikes the traveler ai rather odd in thirf wooden country Is to see the style of Scotch plaid shawls, such a were worn by the "swells afoe' dc wah," and which are occasionally seen in some regior.9 of the north. Before tho war it was considered style to wear a shawl, in fact it was all the go, but lately few are hvd, and tuaally nowadays the man that wears a t-bawl wears his panU inside his boots and bi Lands in bis pockets. This reminds me that there is s difference in the manner in wbicb tbe Yankee fills bis pockets and the Southerner. The Yankee fill his pocket by keeping his hands out of them, while ilie om!v wav the "Cracker" fll's his pocket is by keeping his hand In. them. When he takes his hands out his pockets are empty. As 1 intend t" deal more thoroughly with tho Southern r and Southern interest in future lettir-l will "give them a rest" here, wh'le I ninke a note of wl at tho "blue grass" co-intrj, which we are about leaving, c-iutdu worth notiug. But then here Is Tennessee, where cotton and niggers are the principal crop; the former requiring two Hcrestoiuc bale, and the latter two niggers to thu acre Boor laud averages two cabins to the acre, oud fourteen niggers to the cabin. They are distributed into groups ot seven at the door, three at the window, two on the porch, one hanging out clothes in thoyard and another cbatdug pigs. Their white teeth show a good disposition and the white of their eyes are mimiiable on Hie minstrel stage. In the cotton fields flro you see the teeth gleaming trom sfr, then you see tho eyes, and then you see tho nij. ger. But here we are nearing Memphis. MKMl'UIH Is the chief city oi lenuesfce, pud In faci one of the principal cities of thu South, li is charmingly situated on a high liltiff ov erlooking the father of waters. I s htrce' uro broad and dirty, rsgularly laid out nihl cross each other at right arises, ut thire is nothing particularly attractive to le seen either in houses, buildings or gHr- dens The town is what might bo called "old style." but it has had such learlui drawbacks from "yellow Jack" and other cauces, that one Is almost inclined to over look :tnv improvements in the way of buildings. But it is like nearly, all other southern cities, dirty and uukempt, which, perhaps, accounts for the occasional ap pearance ol epidemic. Memphis has not improved much in this respfct'and although its denizens wilj tell you that all that can be done to pre vent a repetition of past calamities ha been done, yet, to the eye ol a traveler from the north, where people keep their streets aud gutters clean for the hike of cleanness, and where no such epidemics are experienced, the appearance ot trie streets of Memphis is horrible. M mphis has advantages in tbe way of drainage that few cities possess, and might, with some effort and expense, be the cleanest city in America. It is situated near the centre of tho cotton bell, and has a big trade with the states of the west, south and north-east. Tbe area of cotton production is in all directions form the city, aftiu the location always accessible by waUr, on the great river, which is below tho ica gorges of winter, where planters can con trol their crops and have access to the markets for its sale, as well as to source of supplies. But as I am not intent on writ ing tho history of the country, I will uot go into further details just at this tunc, especially regarding Memphis We left Memphis ria the Mississippi & Tcnnossee railroad, for JacKson, Miss., pas sing through a belt of country which in appearance is anything but encouraging. Vast tracts of land, stretching away for miles in all directions, apparently value less, aud with exception of now and then a straggling son of "Ham," the regions seem deserted. Here we are told that beautiful plantations once bloomed, and happy homes were seen where now flour ishes the cabin of the black man. Bat, great Cteser, a quarter ot a century should revive things, and all this desolation hap pened over twenty years nito. But of all this ann. Jackson, the capitol of Mississippi, was reached late at night, and with exception of the escaping steam, the regular throbs of the air brake, and occasional Jlnglo of the engine bell, tho town reminded one of a city of the dead. Morning's bright sun light brought no more lively a scene, aud as the day wore on nothing turned up to enliven the day at the once gay capitol. The legislators were not in session, and law makers were taking a rest. The members and senators meet only every other year to save expense, and as a "blue- blood" Mississippian remarked, 'it would be well for the state if they met only once every ten years." Jackson is a city of poor pretentions fur i capitol. It Is divided into two principal thoroughfares, on which tbe stores and business houses such as they are are lo cated. They are neither pretentions nor Imposing in style, stock or anything else. Tho state house stands upon an eminence overlooking the city. It Is of the old style and unpreteutlons. Its halls echo more of that eloquence wkicli flowed from the lips of colored members and senators seven years ago, when 1 first saw it. All now is still, and a stroll through its corridors re minds me of the words of the poet : I feel like one who treads alouo Some tmiiqoct hull deaerteJ, W iiot HkIiU aru out, whose gutsU are (font-, And all but roe have left it. V1CRSUUIIO, Misn. The tried and troubled city of the hills w as our next point. icksburg is situated on the Mississippi at tbe mouth of the Yazoo river. Here crumbling bluffs, titled w .'li historic memories of the w ar. mid 1-nptt t.i'Ay of one of the most desperate sieges aud defences ot modern times, rist in imposing prominence from the bank ot the M sslsslppi, sloping iccully back, and capcd by many handsome residences. Vicksburg is a thriving city, aud during the business hours of the day the street, present a lively appearance. The court house is the most promittcnt edifice in tbe city; situated on the summit of a hill it commands an imposing tight for mile around. From the grass grown ramparts one can look out upoa the fatbei of water, and see far away in the dittaact the canvl projected by the federals during tbe war, and which Las since been con- structod, made available, but which ha virtually "killed" tbe upper end ot Vicks. burg. Before this was accomplished the river was so crooked Kt this point and made so many turns thut it was Impossible for a stranger to say for a certainty w hich direction was up or down. From Ibis point we cst our eyes to the right, looking north, and seo tho old fort, from which "Whirling Dick," a famous confederate gun, talked to the Yankees during tho siege. "On that lull yondar," says a southern gentleman to mo, pointing his fingur toward a hill near the river bank, "is the devil's lnvcklx ne, where s'ood the 'Swnmp Angel' that bothered the federals so much during the siego." On the court house steps and Hags are the luiiies of many soldiers yet visible. Who would have thought that those names and initials, cut nearly a quarter of a century ago, w nild liit until this day ? But there they are and liable to remain for some years yit to come. Thouc names most conspicuous and plainly visible are: l W. IMuiiga!!, drummer, Co. I), 45 III.; F.J. M , C i. C.72 III.; C. B., 108 III.; II. 0. A., Co. 11.. 15 111. ; S. Ward, 68 O. V. I ; I j.

In this city ol the dead repose tho remains of mteeii thousand soldiery twelve thousand of which are marked "unknown." A simple hliaft in the middle of the cemetery marks the spot where i-ut and Pembi rion held their fi mous in' rview. The whole is enclosed i bv a substantial brick wall, and within those known are marked with the name of him whose bones are laid beneath, liu regiment together with win re ho fought and foil.

Professor Herbert Tuttlc, under the title of "German Political Leaders," contributes a valuable. article on the Ger man Hoichstag or Diet, with sketches of the party leaders. The article is finely illustrated by Kcinhart. Geo. M. White gives niauy interesting reminiscences of W Littler In his "Local Association of Whittier's Poems." The serials, "Shandon Bells" and "For the Major," are contin ued, and there are a couple of very good short stories. There is the usual install ment of poems, and George William Curtu, in the Easy Chair describes tbe eay winter season in New York; discusses Tennyson's new play; notices tho recently published life and letters of Lydia Maria Child ; and pays a graceful tribute to the late Anthony Trollopo. The Literary lUford and other departments, including an admirable Drairr, are full, as usual, of timely and interesting matter. Tuk Cisttjhv Magazine. (New York. f 4 a year).

' Two articles "American Etch- ers," by Mrs. an nennsaiaor, ana Ar tists' Models in New York," by Miss Charlotte Adams are especially notice able for the number and excellence of their picture. Mr. Howell begins a new story In this number, "A Woman's Bea son," the scene being mainly laid In Bos ton. The fourth part of the "Led Horse Claim," by Mary Uallock Footc.heightens the dramatic- interest of that story, which is to end in the March number. The short story of tho number Is a fanciful tale by Frank B. Stockton, entitled the "Spectral Mortgage." The poetry of tbe iiuiibcr is unusually excellent. .

"The African in the Vutted States," by Prof. Gilliam, is the first and in many ret pec ts the moht important article in the February number. Tho burden of it is that the black population 1 gaining on that of the whites, and that the blacks arc, and mmt continue to be, a distinct and alien people. When tit blocks have so for (rained on tbe whiles as to outnumber them, what then? Bucu cotillicts and cndlets dire calamities, is the answer. Prof. Bain's address ou "Tho Universal Ideal" is tho next paper, aud Is ono of deep interest to all who are concerned about u higher education.

Bishop McCjuaid writes cf The Decay of Protestantism," and in tssayiug to prove his thesis, maKes a very adroit use of the admissions of proteBtant writers. "The Political Situation" is the Joint title of two articles, the one by Hora tio Seymour, the other by Geo. S. Bout well, who offer their respective views upon the causes of the recent overthrow of the Republican party. An article by Dr. D. I A.

There is a tine article by Joaquin Miller, describ ing an ascent of Mount Hood by a party of tourists; and another by Hjalmar H.
