An individual, Inclined to be facetious,
Approached a well-knit, hut rather green
looking passenger on board olio of the
steamboat at our landing, the other

birds.1' The passenger having no birds,
put hl llugor to his mouth and observed
that that wa4 all the bird lie hud, and it
wasu't for salo us ho know'd of. Whoro

a blow thereon that laid the facetious
man sprawling upon the floor. That ono
Hole was all; the stranger, in doubt as to
the result of a continued contest, mado

The Memphis papors say that tho
county court of Shelby county has issued
.p0,000 iii county bonds to Col. Mitchell,
president of tho Memphis fc Cairo road,
and tiiat the Colonel has negotiated them
for over 90 cents on tho dollara better
prlco than such lKinds have been sold for
for many years.
Memphis subscribed $250,000 to this
railroad, and the 'Avalanche desires to
know why the Vv'holo amount was not
handed over to Col. Mitchell? In lets
than three weeks the road will bo under
contract, and the whole amount will
not build thoroad through Hhelby coun
ty. Tho payment of $50,000j tho 'Ava
lanche' thinks, is trifling with a great
project. t

fourteen years of age, of u yellow, cadav

The Earthttako, Ifcln Mvralnsr.
About ten minutes past 2 o'clock this
morning, Cairo was visited by an earth
quake that aroused citizens from a sound
slumber, and excited a clatter of window
sashen and shutters, crockery ware, etc.,
IfM iW AMI Jqlnff to .listen, to.
It was, as is usually the case, preceded
by a roaririg souhdnofi unllko that oc
casioned by the rush of dlhtant waters,
or the sweep of the whirlwind through
the forest, Te shock followed almost'
instantly, the ! motion being of fin oscil
lating naturo, gradually dying away,
and then receiving a fresh Impetus and
dying away again. The f motion was
believed to be frdmfe.ist' to west, lis du
ration being variously estimated t from
elgh't td'twenty seconds.
There was no damage done, that wo
hear, of, In. tatty partifof tho city and
fifteen ralnutjC after Its subsidence,
lights we're blown out, and the cly again

The needful funds have been raised in
England to build tho 300 miles of 'the
Cairo. FuUori road lying within tho
State of Arkansas, and the whole lino
will be put under contract tho present
veason. Cob Allen will extend it from the
Arkansas lino to ClirtrlOtob, thus opening
up connection between Tattle Bock, Ful
ton and St. Louis. For $100,000 Cairo
bonds, the road will bcexteudt'd'on a di
rect, liuo from Charleston toBlrd's Point,
thus finishing it as originally contem
plated. Tho business tho road will throw into
tho hands of our merchants, will reim
burse the city in a year; and under tho
operation of tho luto railroad law, tho
principal will be provided for without

iVo arc.glud to learn that this spacious
and flrst-class hotel will remain open for
the reception of guests during the entire

Jewett Wilcox willcontlriuoln the direct
superintendence of Its affairs, our read
ers will, of course, understand that the
excellence of tho faro will not be dimin
ished in the least.
As It Is well-known that during the
blazing days of July and August, tho
travol through Cairo is small, and that a
hou.c of the size and character of tho St.
Charles la run nt a heavy expense, wo
hope our citizens will see the necessity
of concentrating upon the house all tho
patronage ot thelrcommand. Itis highly
Important to Cairo that the St. Charles
should be kept open constantly. Isn't it,

Tho Cairo fc Vlucenncs railroad, tho
Cairo & St. Louis railroad, tho Illinois
Central railroad and the Junction rail
road are thoroughfares of great cotifcc
qunnce to Cairo; but tbo Cairo it Fulton
railroad Is of tho highest importance.
Without it, wo can have no communica
tion with the great fouthwest, wbicli
!ome day Is to bo tho main Mipp rt nf
Cairo. Without tho Illinois Central, wo
can reach Chicago; without tho Culco &
Vlnccnncswo can reach tho Wabash val
ley; without tho Cairo & St. Louh road
wo can reach St. Louis and tho upper
Mississippi, and without the Junction
rooii we can reach tho South. Hut with
out tho Cairo & Fulton road wo cunnot
reach (he southwest, as there aro no rail
roads or rivers affording menus of com
munication. Wo give 5200,000 to the Cairo & Vlncen
lies road; f 200,000 to the Cairo & St. Louis
road; but can secure tho Cairo & Fulton
road worth moro to us than either of
tho othors for $100,0001 Shall we hesi
tate to close In with such an offer?
Cairo needs to the main-spring to
action that this road will furnish. Se
cure it aud our future will bo one of un
Intcrupted prosperity.

Wo would suggest to tho hundred or
two idle men In Cairo, whito and black,
tho propriety of striking out into the
country. They can earn $20 while they
aro bemoaning their distressed condition
here, and searching for work they cannot
find. The harvesting in Union is delayed
on account of short help. Hurry up there,
then, ave the crops, and you will do
