a certain judge, who said to mo once:
'Deuster, a man thinks himself awful big
at home; but just let him get hero once
and take his seat in congress, and insi lo of
four weeks you can buy him for a song.'
That was my experience, too." And that
is the experience of pretty much every new
man who goes to Washington. The re
publicans of this district should profit by
Mr. Deuster s experience and apply it in

The sub-committee of five, of tho com

sippi levee, and other matters.

ownership of tho levees, the right to col'

News of the river yesterday was fav
orable enough so far as this point was con
cerned, but not as much so as was doBirablc
from other points. The fall here, leeorJud
for the twenty-four hours ending at ono
o'clock yesterday afternoon, was eleven
inches. At the hour named tho river stood
at forty-four feet two inches on tho gaujje,
and at six o'clock it stood at forty-three
nine tenths feet. It is probable that, as
wharfmastor, Sam. Orr prophesied, tho low
er sewer can and will be opened this fore
noon; but whether it can remain open is a
matter of some doubt as it
is possible that tho general heavy rise at
points above Cairo will affect us somewhat.
According to yesterday's river bulletin, the
change in tne rivers at the principal points
above here wero ns follows: Chatanooga,
rise of one inch; Nashville, riso of eleven
inches; Cincinnati, rise of three feet seven
inches; Louisville, riso of three feet live
inches; St. Louis, stationary.
A life assurance society is sometimes
contrasted with a savings bank. But it
has many advantages over the ordinary
savings bank, and is itself a savings bank
of a more profitable and permanent char
acter. Tho very first payment mado to tho
Equitable Life Assurance Society for a
policy secures to the family of tho insured
a sum of money which it would requiro a
long series of years to accumulate in a sav
ings bank. This first annual payment for
tho life insurance is money saved for the
future. It may appear small in amount ; so
small, th.it the person insured would not
attempt to save it in any other way. And
if tho insured man should die during tho
year, what would the money left in the
savings bank amount to in comparison with
that which will bo acquired by his-family
from his life insurance policy? Mr. II. II.
Knowles, general agent, is now in Cairo and
ready to receive applications for the com
pany. Tho Philadelphia Press, referring to the
floods in tho Mississippi and its tributaries
this year, says : "In 1853 tho Mississippi
flooded its lower valley; put the whole
country under water, and kept there for
weeks. The next cotton crop was tho lar
gest on record up to date, 4,018,011 b;iles
against 3,257,301) tho year before
with low water. In 1859 the river was
flooded again, high water lasted into May,
utter destruction was predicted for cotton,
and the crop that year was 4,891,293 bales,
the largest on record until the crops of a
few recent years. With the same territory
under water in the same way these things
are worth remembering." While there is
undoubtedly a basis of truth in this state
ment it is also true that the floods of 1858
and 18:59 were not nearly so extensive as
that of 1882, and tho destruction of life
and property, and the consequent suffering
were not nearly so great.
Opinions differ as to crop proBpects in
the overflowed regions of tho south. Many
think that tho waters will recede in time
for tho preparation and planting, the others
are afraid that in localities nearer the gulf
the flood will rage'beyoud the limit. Capt.
Ed. Blanks, in speaking to a St. Louis re
porter, said that the river was still rising
from Vicksburg down, which increased
every day tho suffering of both man and
beaBt. Tho nearer the gulf tho earlier the
crops are put in, ond thoy mature thorc
sooner. Should the floods subside at an
early date, tho people would bo in read
iness to commence planting. From the
present outlook the water will probably re
main on the laud for several weeks yet,
and ho was afraid that before it receded
planting time will bavo pusred. Lands in
tho lower country are suitablo for plowing
in a very short time, as the soil is of a sandy
nature. Speaking of a June rise, he said
that ho had watched tho weather and tho
snowfall in the mountains, and noticed that
it had been very light. On that account
ho did not believo there would bo a June
riso, unless there should bo phenomenally
heavy rain storms in tho interior. Having
watched tho signs all his life, ho seldom
failed to prognosticate correctly.
Tho waters have begun to Bubsido on
tho Lower Mississippi river. This is greate-
ful news, for it means relief from further
flood devastation, but the subsidence of tho
waters will nevertheless make more mani
fest tho tremendous person 1 losses which
havo been sustained by the riparian proper
ty owners. Tho loss of lifo has been doubt
less far greater than is generally believed,
for many people were caught by tho flood
somo distance back from the river, and
have no doubt perished lrom starvation.
In a few weeks the water will havo retired
sufficiently to enable puoplo to take a sur
vey of their land and arrange for cultiva
tion. To Jdo this they need assistance.
Everything has been swept away. They
havo nothing save tho land, and
much of that immediately on tho river
lias been swept sway by tho flood. Tho
calamity is greater, as fares resultant desti
tution and personal damage is concerned,
than a yellow fever epidemic, and yet
there lias been a remarkable degree of
apathy ns to furnishing relief. This Is prob
ably duo to Hie fact tlmt it wni announced
that tho government hud taken tho mutter
in hand and was furnishing rations to tho
sufferers. The money npproprlntnd for this
purpose by congress will, however, go a
very little way, nnil it devolves u;ion tho
people to oomiibuie in ue,v. ' V
Probably ono reason why tho managers
of the Cairo and St. Louis, or St. Louis and
Cairo, railroad maintain such n cold ex
terior towards tho citizens and authorities
of Cairo, and treat all advancos for an am
icable settlement of thejdifl'erences between
it and the city council with an unconcern
amounting to disdain, is that they hopo to
gain something by tho election which is to
come off in this city next month they
probably hopo to sno a council oloctod
which will grant them what they nslt with
out imposing any inconvenient conditions.
They are probably lead to hopo this by tho
belief that their several questionable
schemes to manufacture public opinion
horo-to arouse the pooplo of Cairo against
tho council end against their own interests
havo succeeded. Ihey probably flatter
themselves that they have, by a series of
artfully practiced rusus, mado dupes of the
voters of Cairo; induced them to look
upon the Cairo and St. Louis, or the St
Louis and Cairo, or Amsterdam, St. Louis
and Cairo, or Cairo, St. Louis and Amster
dam, railroad company, as a poor, innocent
shamefully persecuted little orphan
whoso solo object it has
been and is, to bless ,the hand
that rudely smoto (?) it, and to bring
wealth and industry to the city at a great
sacrifice to itself. But if the company
aforesaid prides itself upon having achieved
any such success, it will bo sadly disap
pointed when tho results of tho work on tho
18 t'u of April Bhall have been announced.
It will finl then, that its many feints wero
"too thin;" that the pooplo guiued some
thing by their former experiences in deal
ings with corporations, that they were
sensililo enough to recognize their own in
terests, and to endorse the actions of those
who sought to enforce these interests. The
people of Cairo havo found that dealing
with a corporation is liko dealing with a
treacherous opponcut in some wild mining
camp in the west they rccognizo tho fact
that iho man who "gets the dn p" is uc vic
tor. In the matters now at issue between the
City of Cairo and the railroad company
aforesaid, tho questions of "who was re
sponsible for the washing awav of the olu
Mississippi levee,1' or, "who should havo
built tho new levee," or "how muoh was
the city swindled out of by tho aforesaid
company," or, "did tho city council act
foolishly in enjoining the company from
building its road into the city w hen high
water had already placed an inviolable in
junction upon said roid," nono of these
questions havo anything whatever to do
with tho matters at issue between the city
council and the railroad company aforesaid.
But tho only q-iostion with which tho poo
plo and tho council have to deal is,
"would it bu to the interest of the City of
Cairo to havo New Levee strengthened,
and Would this object be best accom
plished by compelling the Cairo and St.
Louis, or St. Louis ond Cairo, or Amster
dam and St. Louis railroad, to come into
tho city outside of said New Levee, be
tween the city and danger, in consideration
of n valuable franchise, granted to it by
the city?" This is tho only question to bo
considered by tho people and council of
Cairo it is tho only question which has
been considered seriously by them. What
the popular answer to this question is, is
no secret. It is apparcut to the most ob
tuse from every act of tho city council
bearing upon this matter; it is appureut
from the propositions and decisions of the
people in mass meeting assembled and of
their committees in dealings with the of
ficials of tho railroad company aforesaid;
audit will be spoken in an unmitakable
manner by the ballots on the I8th proximo.
If all theso signs of the times do not satisfy
the company that nothing is to bo gained
by procrastination, other facts can bo men
tioned which would satisfy them. It is
truu tho railroad company looses nothing
by this procrastination, or even though it
were granted all tho privileges it asks it
could not now, nor for some time, avail it
Belt of them becauso of high water; but
Tuk Bulletin, seeing that tho company is
making every possible means, both
fair and foul, to "fix things"
during its spare tinio, and is evidently
elated over its success (?), feels in duty
bound to inform the company of the utter
hopelessness of its case up to the present
time and would kiudly drop it tho hint
that it might waU longer and fare worse.

A correspondent of tho Chicago Inter
Ocenn of a recent date gives tho following
discription of tho condition of things in
Mound City, Metropolis, Shawnectown nnd
other places in Southern Illinois: "At
Uilin, twenfy-ono miles out on tho Illinois
Central, tho back water from the Cache and
tho sloughs that put out just above Mound
City is first met, and with tho exception of
a few clay mounds tho whole region is from
three to fifteen feet under water. To got to
Mound City I got off at a little station four
miloB out, and in nu old dilapidated Mich
igan Central bobtail caboose, with a mis'
erable little mule for a locomotive, jolted
over a villainous corduroy, road for half
the distance, and then took a skiff for tho
Iowa coming in by tho National Cemetery,
nnd Forked Tailed avonuo. Mound City,
liko Cairo, in protected by a levee, but the
si pa water was all over the town ; sidewalks
floating around, and tho negroes and
hoodlums roosting on fences or hanging
lazily out of the second story windows
waiting for "dem rsshuns" which tho gen
oral government was to send. Thero seem
ed to bo a wide diversity ofopiuion as to
having Mound City and Pulaski
county advertised all Over the
Nation as a pauper district.
Aside from the misery I bsw
on every hand while in this vicinity, was
ono other thing that pained me. The
beautiful uational cemetery, wherein lie
between eight thousand aud nino thousand
soldiers and sailors, although protected by
a lovei' of its own, was four and five feet
under water. These poor follows had been
bnptistcd in firo, and it was a sad thought
that having died for their country that
country could not have been found them a
final resting place beyond the flood's angry
lido. Of course nil the manufacturing es
tablishments and every- kind ot business
was at a standstill, inflicting additional
MKTHOIMMS AND MASSAC COCNTY.
The thriving village of Metropolis ex
perienced the usual cessation of business
bending tho flood. Its four saw-mills, two
flouring mills,' and spoke factory had their
fires put out and probably eight hundred
men were thrown out of employment for
three weeks. Colonel Willis, collector of
internal revenue, Colonel W. R. Brown, ex
Representative B. O. Jones, and others esti
mato that about 0,500 acres are overflowed
in that county, about half of which is under
fair cultivation, so that all tho fences will
be lost. No rolief committee has been or
ganized, und ttie citizens say the county
is able to take care of its own sufferers.
t rrr rhino h n a w n eeto n.
Shawnectown has a levee, but it is no
uncommon thing for the Waliah to come
out end over end, nud, when it strikes a full
Ohio, it cuts across lots and conies in b
hind Sliawneetown nnd fairly makes the
people "climb the cypress." This time
Shawnectown has had more than the mual
ill-luck, and her people deservo sympathy.
Governor Culloin xent them 10J tents and
local relief committees supplied their ur
gent wants. I do not hear that any appeal
hus been made to Washington; but certain

being unable to take care of their poor.
The equalized value of all the taxtblo
property in Gallatin county in 1880 was
$1, 531,707. it is not a very poor county
after all. What Shawnectown needs is
filling up, as nearly all of the south side
of Chicago has been filled up. Shawnee
town is a splendid commercial centre, lias
two railroads, uud uulimited river trans
portation" The correspondent also refers to Cairo;
but he draws such an exugcrated picture
that one cannot recognize even a im larity
lietwctn it and the city itself. ' Some idea
of the monstrous clnructor of this corres-
jpondent's imaginary picture carrica-
turea, more properly called, can be gained
from the following quotations from his ar
ticle: "By comparison I may say that if
all the south sido of Chicago, between tho
river and Canal street, Twelfth street and
the Illinois Central railroad tracks on the
Lake Front, was from three to ten feet un
der water, one could imagine something of
how Cairo has been. Since the
erection of the levee the highest water till
now was in 186., wliicu tell seventeen
inches short of tho present flood, no that
every Wave washed over the leveo and .
threaten a break The lumber
yards were stripped to make boxing, tho
coal yards were emptied for material, and
worse than all, the yellow fever graveyard,
the only ground out of water anywhere
near Cairo, was compMIod to yield up the
mold that covered tho dead that tho living
might be spared yet a littlo longer. Rows
nud rows of coffins in that graveyard, I
am told, lie bsro to-day. Com

supposed, abovo any danger from sipo wa

It is not probable that a denial of the
untruths contained in the above effusion,
from any interested, though well informed,
porty, will have much effect upon tho minds
of those whose belief in Cairo's liability to
overflow and uncomfortably aqueous con
dition amounts to au inheritance. But even
in the face of this discouraging fact Tun
Bulletin cannot fail in its mission to cor
rect error and promulgate the truth, and
therefore It tskes occasion to say that Com
mercial avenue, so far from being coverod
with water to tho depth of several foot is.

seo why coal yards Should havo boon

wash over the levees, and in short Cairo
was and is not ip a condition equal to that
of half Chicago if it were submerged to
depth of from tbee to ten feet. If "P.
