I.a-t night tho regular sociable of thu
Liberal liellgiou Association took place
nt their hall om Washington avenue. Thu
hall at an early hour was v.dl filled with
ladle.- and gentlemen of all ages, who
whlled away the hours either In plea-ant
convcr-alion, or in tripping over thu floor
with "flying feet" to tho time of the
sweet mu-lc discoursed by F.l'cnburg's
string band. When once the young of
this city have ta'ted of the enjoyment
which Is afforded them by the managers
of lhi'-e plea-ant events, they look for
ward anxiously for tbo time to nrrive
when they will again be allowed to as
semble under their au-piccs'. Through
endeavors of these gentlemen to furnish
their friends u suitable place where they
can gather and forget for a few hours at
least thu eares of life, they have incurred
an expense which tie proceeds of the o
C'lblos seldom cover, but still they keep
them going, their only recompense being
the knowledge that by so doing they aru
ull'oriling others a good time.
Tlie I. F. 1'.
The debate between Messrs. Jones and
McGee, and their assistants, which took
place ut the I'nlteu States signal service
rooms Wednesday night, was very good,
though It might have been much better
on both sides. Mr. Lawrence Smith,
who was on the programme for an essay,
from some eauu was not present, and
the next proceeding, an oration by Mr.
John Oswald, was called for. Mr. Oswald
took tho tloor, and in a few hut very de
cisive, words proved to tho audience very
clearly the benefits derived from thu
unions now existing among nearly every
da's of working men in tnls country, as
well as in England. A movement was
made at this meeting, to consnlidato tho
F. F. F. Debating nnd Literary Society
with that of tho Young Men's Debating
Club, but whether tho consolidation will
bu eilected, is as yet unknown.
Thu next meeting of the club will take
place on Wednesday night, when tho
question, "Resolved, That Intemperance
produces more misery than war," will bu
discussed, with Mr. John Hacker, assisted
by Mr. William McGec, In the alllrmatlve,
and Louis Shuckers, assisted by Mr. John
Oswald, lu tho negative, llesldo tho de
bate, numerous other literary exercises,
consisting of select reading by Mr. Frank
Van Dorcn, an csay by Mr. IjTimm not
Mr. Slum, of .lorley's wax works nhow,
but Mr. Lumm will go to make up the
evening's proceedings. The club havu
decided to admit the public nt this meet
ing, nnd extend u cordial Invitation lo all
to Iw present. Any person attending the
meetings of tho club, luw the privilege of
giving liw opinion In regard to any ques
tion upon debate. Thu members of the
society do not only give strangers this
privilege, hut would be pleased to have
them give their vlew, as the society ha
been organized for thu purpose of mutual
Entertainment nt Hip l'liintrr'IIouap.
The musical entertainment and lunch,
that was given by Mr. Edmund lluefner,
proprietor of the Planters' House Wed
newlay night, has seldom been equalled by
any similar demonstration Hint has taken
placu lu Cairo for year. At eight o'clock
Elenbtirg's siring band, consisting of
seven of thu finest muaieluns In this city,
entered the hall and began the first part
of the programmu with an overture,
which was followed by a uuinltcr of oilier
nnd beautiful pieces. At half-past ten
o'clock the most luxurious lunch thatha
been partaken offor years by the citizens
of Cairo, consisting of every delicious ar
ticle of food that could be procured, wns
spread before the large audience of guest",
who Were not ut all backward In helping
themselves. As thu host remarked Im1
forc the nll'idr was ndvertl-ed, It was got
ten up regardless of evpene, and wi s
really beyond question a first-class enter
tainment. 'nl Xo. a.
Entron IH'llkti.v: Pleae allow me
once more to make a fuw remark
through your paper. When elected to
the olllce of County Superintendent. I
rclgned my position ns teacher In the
public school from the fact that I was en
tirely Ignorant of the duties pertaining
to the olllce. Having had a year's cxxiil
enceand become familiar with lis dutle.
I accepted a position lu the parish scliool
with the undemanding that mv olllclal
duties should not ho Interfered with. Our
late State Superintendent, Hon. Newton
Iiateinen, in his "Common Scliool Decis
ion"." says: "Many County Superintend
ents ot schools aru engaged in teaching.
There is no legal Impediment to thi
tho two are not Incompatible.'' I will
here say that I never have and I never
shall seek any podtlou by resorting to
sympathy as a subterfuge. Tho only
foundation upon which I seek to stand U
merit, and that alone. Is there not such
a thing us having double interests and
succeeding equally well with both ? if not.
I may lie so presumptuous as lo inaugu
rate a new era, and demonstrate to the
world that a woman can do two things,
nnd do them both well.

Wedncday evening, about 7 o'clock,
after the employes of the IU'LLEtin olllce
had appeased their appetites, and were
congregated in the compo-lng room dis-cus-Ing
national politics, two of these gen-tU-meu-
one hailing from Hrownsville,
Tenn., thu other from Zanesvllle, Ohio
became heated over the subject, and one
wrathful word followed another, until
thu Ohioan blandly informed thuTcuuus
seoau that "he was a d d liar." The
gentleman from Tennessee, being natur
ally hot-blooded, replle 1 : "I am a gentle
man, by G il. and will not take any
such insolence from you," and accord
ingly he went for Ids antagonist. It 1
hardly necesary to state that these repre
sentatives of two great States made
things lively for a few moments, and in.
their endeavors to "pie" each other's
forms, almost succeeded in accomplishing
as much for those of thu Uullktin.

eager for the entertainment to commence,
knowing full well that they wen; to bo
thu recipients of a mulcal treat such as
is not often their privilege to enjoy. To
ay that thecntiroaudlcnce was delighted
even beyond expectation, Is needless.
Thu tlr-t part of thu entertainment was
opeii'.'d with an Instrumental duct, by
.Misses Jessie Phlllls ami Lucie Wilson.
The effort on the part of thu young ladles j
was very satisfactory to the hearers, who
mowed tneir appreciation or It ny ap

Heing alllieted with a severe cold, Mis j
Ella Steele, who was upon the
programmu to favor thu audience with a
vocal rolo, entitled "I'll Follow Thee,"
did not slug the piece, but performed in
its stead a beautiful instrumental solo
Miss Lulu Pace then took her placu at
the piano, and perform ;d a beautiful and
dilllcult instrumental solo, which was
very deservedly complimented.
Then came tne select reading of .Mr.
Widter Mclvee. This gentleman Is well
known among the literary people of this
city as a very well read and Intelligent
man; his selection was very excellent,
and the execution was fine.
Mr.C. Hobbins was the next to take

Mrs. Lansdeu's solo, "La Prlmavera,"

A select reading by Mrs. G. G. Alvord
was next, and in keeping with every ellbrt
of the kind which that lady undertakes,
was very excellently done.
"Sonata" a piano duet, by the Misses
Kate and Laura Yoenm, was very beauti

Mrs. W. P. Halllday then sang a very
beautiful solo entitled, "Taku me Hack to

of the entire assembly.
