The charge entered against Mcllrid'- was
a-Kiultlug with a deadly weapon, with
Intent to murder .lames Dougherlv.
There were three witnesses In the ene.
namely, .Samuel Fbher, William itedden
and Asa It.iuuigariluer. all of vlioc evi
dence proved clearly that Mcllndu made
every elfort to avoid any trouble with
Dougherty. It v.i stated by these gen
tlemen thai tin; tlffcudcut. In hi' cllorls
to keep out of the reach of Dougherty,
had walked backward out Into the street
and back to the sidewalk ol the Del-
monlco saloon, three times, and that he
was followed each tlnw by Dougherty,
who was all the while waiting for a
chance to Hrike him; aud that he did sue

as staled In sestxrdav morning'
li.s. Uapticarud lioni the evidence In
the ca'o that Mcllrlde's only Intention hi
backing awav from Dougherty was, that
he might In thl- way get an opportunity
to turn and run, knowing that he wis
no match, in a mu'cular conte-t. for
Dougherty, and having no de-ire to use

On the thirteenth and fourteenth of
this month (next TucHday and Wcdnci
day i venlng), the German Lutheran
Emanuel church congregation of this
city will give a fair and lestlval at the
Arab engine house, which, judging from
the arr.'iigenients already perfected and
those now In progress, prompts to be a
success In every sense of the word. In
noting the dillerent modes of amusement
that will bo afforded thoso who wish to
be present, there is one Item which struck
us very forcibly, which has heretofore
been looked upon as one of the mo-t
amusing departments of which this kind
of cnterpiiscs aro constituted, but Which
in tills instance will be altogether done
nway with. We reler to the lottery. The
managers ol this ailalr wish It distinctly
understood that there will be
nothing in the lottery line
tolerated on this occasion, and also
wish us to state that any one who wishes
to attend, will not be solicited to pur
chase any .article on exhibition or for
sale, uiilers ho wishes 'to do so, and there
by contribute to the church. There will
bo refreshments of every kind for sale,
which will be sold to thoso who may
wish them nt vcy reasonable prices. A
very Interesting part of this demonstra
tion will bo the balloting tor a sliver
trumpet, now on exhibition at Under
Brother's Jewelry establishment, by the
ftiends of the dlU'erent lire companies of
this city. The right to voto will cost
each person llfty cents, nnd tho company
receiving tho largest number of tho votes
cast will bo entitled to tho trumpet,
Every amusement, In fact, that Is usually
ntl'orded by alfalra ot" this character, with
the exception of tho lottery, will bo at
this one, and a very pleasant time may
bo looked foi

At a meeting of the Cairo St. Patrick's

this evening, the following preamble and
resolutions were vuianlmoudy adopted:
Wiikukas, V learn with profound re
gret that John Mltehel has pas-td the
threshold of this world, Into the reilm of
llttoh'.J, That In hi death Ireland
has lost ii on whoo devotion to her
c.iusi! wa never surpassed, a patriot
Who sncrltleed home, friends and all
worhllv lotluue tor her sake, and who,
amid all the 'tillering and disappoint
ments endured in exile, never wavered
In his abiding faith In his country's res
unvetlon. JUsotetJ, That while hi amnion with
tho IrWi race nil over the world we give
expression to our feeling or regret at
the loss of our late cherished country
man, we cannot relraiii from cxpredng
the consolation It nilord us that Ids lu,i
utterance to his countrymen win a pro

land. Hue yielding up with hi spirit to

The following mes-age from the
Mayor vetoing the o-dlnanco entitled
"An ordinance prohibiting ihe doing ol
any work provided to be done by special
assessment, until the money has been
colleeled therefor, and prohibiting the
I'stiancc of warrant., nnd contracting of
debt, unless there be inon-y hi the
treasury to meet them" was presented,
Gentleimn of lUr City CouiKil :
I henwith return, without my ap
proval ordinance No. (passed by your
honorable bo ly March lilth, 167:.) "pro
hibiting the doing of any walk provided
to lie done by special a-os-incut, and
prohibiting the issuance of warrant?, and
CJiitractltig or oeois. unos nicrc be
money In the treasury to meet them.
In stating my reasons for declining to
npprove the ordinance, It Is but proper
for mc to say that I approve entirely the
object sought to be accomplished by its
adoption, and that it is with regret that I
llud myself dill'eriug witli the council as
to the bcit or tnoit suitable means to reach
the end so much desired, in the adminis
tration of our inutile pal alia. rs namely:
a ca-h, instead of a civ l.t bit-lucss. That
there are many (iltllcultles surrounding
the questions Involved no one will deny ;
and while we may not be nble to do the
b-t possible thing, or that which we
would like to do, yet there can be no
question but that we should do the best
we cm under tho elic.nn-lances. The
city government must be eatrled on ; any
theory or plan that leaves this as a con
tingency could h irdly be accepted. This
ordin.iuec. however, seems to be so very
stringent. In Its terms and provisions, as
to leave the city government absolutely
at the mercy ot elrctiinstaiies, which
may occur or happen at aluio-t any time.
The ordinance prohibits the Incurring
of liabilities at any time, either for suji
plles or service', when th.-r.! are no
funds In the Treasury appropriated for
the supplies or services in question.
No binding or valid contract can be
made tinle-s there are funds In the city
treasury, at the time, sulllclent to pay for
ihe work or Improvement undertaken by
When the city buys a keg of nails, to
repair. sidewalks, a debt Is contracted;
but the seller U to get no order for his
moiiej- no evidence ot his debt no
written promises of the city to pay him,
until the money to pay him lias come
Into the treasury; ho will not make nio:e
than one sale, or he will wait until the
money Is actually in the treasury before
the city gets his nails, and nit hough the
city may have to watt for nails, yet her
duty to keep the ldevalk in repair is
not suspended, nor Is she relieved from
liabilities tor injuries received by reason
of defective sidewalks, simply because
the city could not procure the materials
to repair them. I use this simple Illustra
tion to show Into what straits the city
must be driven, by what seems to
bo the arbitrary provl-lou ol this ordin
ance. Tako another Illustration : When tho
city employs a policeman r-he Incurs a
debt ; tho issuing to him of his inontlil y
scrip is tho creation of no debt whatever
the scrip Is simply the evidence of tho
debt, and not the "debt Itself, and not at all
necessary to the city's 'liability or to his
recovering of judgment against the city
for his services rendered ; ' the scrip may
bo of convenience to hltn, for when tho
city cannot pay his debt the scrip enables
him readily to trimmer his cvldeuco of
Indebtedness to somo one elso who can
walton the cltv for tho payment of tho
debt. Hence, 'it can be easily seen that
thoonlvwavro ston tho Inclining of
debts, when there Is no money on hand,
! to stop buying snppll". and stop em-
p 'oylngtho services of Individ. ,Ms ;

It seems to tin " there can bo no qyyc
ton on this poin H "e "3Y stop Issuing
fcrip. but until w e nop ot eying eupplle,
.nd employing or receiving the services
o' Individual", we i 'o not stop Incurring

Il is perhaps impossible u the nature
of things for a city to save, ai'way.s,
money In its treuMiry for ev 'ery purpo-e.
and when it has nul it can d o but one ol

riuli are required It is absolutely nccc.
siirv-lor the city to have them; nnd the
conncll can certainly refuse to purchax
services or materials when not absolutely

In my opinion the oily charter as it
stand-, is nmple to protect the city, a no
rontraet can made, or materials or
services bought, unless a majority of the
council acquiesce In the purchase; till
being the case we think the city wr
fectly safe, without the passage of thl-
