that tbe regular weekly sales of tobacco

hoped that there will be a good board ol
buyers present. Cairo is recognized atone

take aj interest in and lend their influence
to tbe enterprise.

Tue ente.'tainment to be iiven this
evening at the Atheneum wll no doubt
be 0110 of tbe most interesting, instructive,
and withal, pleasant, that i has been the
geod luck of the people Jf Cairo to listen
to for a long time. FN" a late number
of tho Memphis 'Apreal' we make the fol
lowing extract of rs. ()' Byrne's reading
in that city :
"I'IPs'' ATTUK OPKHAIIouaK,
Mrs. O liryre gave her second reading
last night, at the operahouso, before a
larie and famionabtn audience, who re
ceived her vlth all the warmth of old
friendship. Uer programme, like that of
her first entertainment, was of such scope
I Kith in regard to character and number
of her selections, as to enable her to sat
isfy tbe tastes and demands of all present.
Sbb eitabllshod herself at once, in the
good graces of her auditory, and after
the reading of several selections of her
ovn choice, challenges the attention of all
by a free-and-easy invitation, after the
mannor of George Francis Train, to say
when she should stop. Put to the voto
as is tbe wont of tbe "next president,1'
thero wai an unanimous demand for her
to go on, which she did until she had
exhausted the long programme.
Wo bavo before indicated to tbe read
ers of tho 'Appeal' the place that, 111 our
judgment, Mrs. O'Uyrne occupies as
a reador. Though young to the ttage,sbe
is thoroughly self-possessed, easy and
graceful indeed, characterized by the
charming abandon of tbe telf.possed,
cultivated woman. A true poet, with
exquisito sensibility, and an instlnctivo
love of tbe beautiful, with a clear,
womanly volco, nd, added to all, a grace
ful and bandsomo presence, she could not
fall to become tbe almost porfeot Inter
preter of tbo host poets, conveying their
meaning to every heart with rare direct
ness and distinctness. Sbo was especially
bappy in roadinK tho Irish selections, for
tbeso claimed all of the pathos and wit
she possesses, and even for an Irishwoman
she has more than hor share "The Bells
of Sbandon," rhythmical and musical,
was a gotn, and not a few of those who
bad heard the bolls so immortalized by
Father Prout but were moved to tears.
But we can not particularize. She went
from "grave to say" with tho perfect
ease of a reader who bad conned her
task, and was au fait in her work. She
was every way worthy the compliment of
so largo and distinguished an audience,
aud can take much comfort to herself for
a notable succoss in behalf of St. Mary's,
tbo good pastor ot which Is, no doubt,
well satisfied with her effort. Wo hope to
hear hor again, and soon, for ber own

Thursday Eve., February 20, 1874.
This has been without doubt the quiet
est, not to isv dullest, week of the season.
There has been no activity displayed In
any branch ol the market yosterdsy nor
to-dsy sxeept in butter and eggs. Stocks
of grain and flour are fair; in corn they
ato a little in excess of tbe demand. Oats
bold firm with a fair order demand that
generally makes way with all reselpts; 58e
In sacks and 47c in bulk for choice mixed
and white has been the selling figures.
Holder were ssklng an adrance to 64c
but no salos were roporlod at that price.
Corn is quiet and flour vary dull. Corn
meal is selling to within ten or fifteen
cents of the New Orleans market, but
holds firm with a limited supply of
fering. We quote provisions unchanged
and not much doing.
The Ohio river is still rising and serious
tears are entertained of a great flood but
our levees ars strong and as far as Cairo
is ooncerned we feel perfectly easy.
Freights and tonnage are plenty and
rates firm at 150 to New Orleans.
19 Corrsspondents should bear In
mind that our quotations represent prices
for round lots from first hands, uoleti
otherwise listed, and that In filling small
orders, higher prices must be peld.t
FLOUR Thsmarkst Is rsry dull and
qulst. Stocks ars lsrgs and transactions
are limited. A small order trade is all
that Is doing among wholesalers. Sales
embrace 800 bbls various grades at 4 60

HAY Receipts have fallen off, and
there Is no strictly choice bay offering. A

16 00. The supply of common bay is
large, and there is no demand fjr It.
Transaotiont are limited to 4 cart choice
Timothy del at 14 00 6 00.
CORN Tba supply although not large
is considered a little In excess of the de
mand. A large part of the receipts for a
few days past has baan of a lor grade,
and has caused a small decline it prices.
Choice dry corn still holds film at last
wssk's figures. Sales 4 cars nor mixed,

Southern Illinois sold readily at 36 ;o 37c;
