On the 3d lust., as we have already in
formed our readers, the committee on
eoumierje of the house at Washington
rejKirted the river und lvarbor bill which
wiu referred back to the committee with
leave to call It up for action at any time
One of the Hems of this bill U S'.W.OOQ
for the Improvement of the Mississippi
river between the mouth of the Ohio
and the mouth of the Illinois risers
Twenty thousand dollars of this amount
is to be expended to prerent erosion of
the banks between the loot of Dickey'
Island ana the mouth ol the Ohio.
Ourpeople may feel some disappoint
ment at the smallncss of the appropriation
(brUibcnflt of Cairo, but If they knew
all the fuels they would, we are
confident, be thankful that they base wr.
cured even this small Mini. Mr. Hart.ell
had to make a great struirirle to net auv-
thing. Tho chief of the engineer tktait-
inent gave It as his opinion that ;Ho
was- in no immediate danger, "and thl
'opinion," says .sir. nnrt7.cn to in in a
private letter, "camo very near defeating

Jacked the "mitral courage to grumble
before some people's faces." I have said
or intentionally insinuated nothing that
is not true or well known by some, and
by which I am not willing to 'bind
:alnt any opposition.
Hy my "dissertation upon the political
corruption'1 of to-day, I meant exactly
what I said nothing more nor lcs than
that elections now-a-days were always
attended with electioneering which.
being almost without exception ca tried
so far a to lie in many liftauciv!
i violation of t lie laws governing clc:-
tions, i only u milder term lor vote-pur
chasing. Tills being true, and not be
lieving that our elections are au excep
tion to the general rule, 1 conclude that
the majority of really honest voter? is
hard to get at. I did not charge bribery
upon any one ot the candidates; I have
too high au opinion ol all of tbcui lor
that. Vou say ''that Messrs. Safl'urd and
S(ratton are not politicians, (I did not say
the., were) and that they are as honest
and as careful ol the poll- as Meesrs.
llarrell and Metcalf." 1 did not say that
they were not. I believe to the contrary.
that they arc most estimable gentlemeiii
both of them, and .so far as their charac
ter Is concerned, nothing can be salt!
gainst them. They arc honest, straight
forward, energetic and regardless ol
size and perfect symmetry ol form, good
looking men a most excellent team, lor
what the one lacks the other can supply.
You wish to know of "what I com
plain." Strange Indeed, It seems to me
that after bavin'' attempted to answer
mv complaints you ought to know what
they are, yet it fcm you do not, ana
I will therefore repeat that I object: first,
to paying nearly five thousand dollar per
annum for the teachers of one room in
the high school.
Secondly: I object to teaching higher
branches than are necessary to a "com
mon school education."
Thlrdlv : I object to the change of text
books ottener than once lu every four
years, as provided by law.
Filth : I object to paying a large .salary
to a teacher ol phonography, a study
which ten out of every one hundred
scholars do not learn and which 1- con
trary to law.
These are some ol my obj'-ctlon and
the existence of these svrongs was urged
against the forrnr r board of directors of
which Mr.Saflbrd was a member.
It, however, any of these objection
should prove groundless if it should I
shown that any of the above mentioned
wrongs do not now exist there. Indeed
would the secrecy of the boaru'n meet
ings and transactions appear almost
criminal, and It 1 to the interest of Ihe

Mr. Saflont does, and Jl tint gentleman
has nut changed his opinions since the
election, it Is liotatall probable that we
