pajiers publlched In Wet Tciinessoe,
called on us yesterday.

The Arab engine house, which lor the
past few weeks lias been undergoing im
provements, looks very neat with Its new
coat of jialnt, and adds materially to the
appearance of the neighborhood Here

We are told that a party of twelve la

Mr. Dcvoreaud son, of this city, took
their departure lrom our wharf yesterday
morning, In a small but staunch little
sail boat, for raducah. J he boat was
built by Mr. Devore and his son ltobert,
uud they started for I'aducah against an
unusually .'trong current, for the purpose
of testing the llttl'i craft's qualities.
Kmiawity.
VcMerday morning, about eleven
o'clock, the hor.- attached to Mr. Trigg's
delivery wagon, while standing in front of
Ills grocery store, became frightened and
ran away. The animal ran down Wash
Ingtoii avenue to the gas house at a rapid
pace, turned round, ran up to the corner
of Seventh street and Commercial
avenue, where he was brought to a halt.
The wagon was not Injured in the least,
tnd the hor.-o was unharmed. Alto
getber it was a very lucky runaway.

We are informed of a light that took
place on Fourth street yesterday morn
lug. The principals were two rival col'
ored demirep?, who for months past
liave both been working very hard to out
wit the other and gain the atlections ot a
lashing young negro man, who seems to
have very little If any preference. When
with one, he talks ami looks sweet to his
onipanion at least. When with the
other, he does likewise. Consequently
they both claim bhn, and when they met
yesterday mornlug,lnUi Wmi,u ,.,,,-nnLMl
at the sight of each other, and had a
light, which lasted several minute'.
Neither was ceriously Injured, however,
as they were parted before they hail time
to do much damage.

When the contract lor the city print

honorable members of the City Council,

it, as a Christian should, made the re
mark that he "would be willing to at

ju-t to make it lively for the IIcm.ktiv,
and get the worth of the money paid by
the city for printing." We do not doubt
this assertion ol the gentleman in the
least, and from the amount of work he is
helping to give us, in the shape of coun
cil proceedings, we believe he is happy.
IMi-UMirc Neckerv.
With the arrival ot each steamer lrom
tho South at our wharf, there comes to
Cairo large numbers of ladles and gen
tlemen from the Southern cities and
towns, w ho have left their homes to spend
the summer at somu pleasant resort in
the North or F.ast. These parties gener
ally stop in Cairo several hours, while
the transferring of freight, Jte., from the
boat Is being done, and take a stroll
through our city. These people, as a
general thing, are favorably impressed
witli Cairo, and express surprise at tlie
slurs that arc thrown at us from those
who know nothing of either Cairo, her
Inhabitants or her qualities. Tho elegant
steamer Thompson Deau brought up a
large party yesterday morning, nearly
all of whom took a walk through town,
and we dare say were equally as well
pleased with their ramble as other tour
It before them havo been.
Ileneral Itcniw.
Yesterday was a clear day the first
since the nth of July, wo believe.
The Cairo Turngemeinde are about
to commence building a hall at the cor
ner of Tenth and Poplar street.
The I'aducah Herald says: "The
Cairo BuM.r.Tix is assured that there is
no cholera at I'aducah, nor anything
even remotely resembling It,"
Tho Gazette says : "A turning over
of the stock held by Alexander county,
in the Cairo and St. Louis railroad com
pany, will securo to Cairo tho road's re
pair uud machine shops." With all our
might and soul, we favor the turning
over!
The Sun, or a correspondent, com
plains that tho passes furnished by the
Narrow Oatigo company over its road,
arc "till the Hist of December, unless
otherwise ordered." All passes read that
way. If Davis will consult those lu his
own pocket, he will discover this to be a
fact.
A correspondent of the Gazette be
lieves the practice of kindling tires witli
coal oil ought to bo prohibited by ordi
nance. Such an ordinance would bo a
dead letter would slumber with tho
railroad ordinances tho sleep that knows
no waking. The council might ns well
attempt to prohibit the practice of eating
water melons and green apples.

"Tax-Payer.'' In the .Vim ol Wednes
lay evening, asks us the following ques-
tions :
Q. "From your Knowledge of the parties
controlling the C. & St. I.. It. It., would
you advise the city and county to turn
over the stock held by them to the par
ties named, receiving from them u pledge
or contract that they will build shops,
Ac?"
A. Neither to thu men who control
the C. & St. L. It. It., nor to any other
men, would wc turn over stock or money
unon their promise to do anything. We
would promise to give if tho men did a
certain thing; and we would give when
they had done that certain thing.
Q. "Is It your opinion, from your
knowledge of the stock held by the City
of Cairo and County of Alexander and
other counties that have Issued bonds
for stock, Is the only legal stock in the
company, and that a suit brought by tills
stock would cause all the other stock to
be cancelled and give the control of the
It. It. to the legal stock, and would not
a suit of this character compel l'ayson &
1 lowland associates to pay par for this
stock or Ioje control of the It. It.V
A. What does Tax-Payer take us for ?
A full bar of lawyers or a Supreme
Court 1 We don't .moio which shares of the
stock of the company tire legal, and can't
llndout until the courts get a chuueo at it;
but our opinion Is, that 1,000,000 of the
stock is legal and that all stock Usucd In
excess of this Is utterly null and void.
"Tax-Payer" Ii03 evidently been reading
the constitution which says that "no
railroad corporation shall issue any stock
or bonds, except for money, labor or
property actually received anil applied to
the purposes lor which such corporation
was creatnl." Ho seems to be
lieve that the only stock Issued for
money, labor or property was the
stock issued to the counties for bonds
but, in our opinion, the stock issued to
Payson & Co., was issued for labor ac
tually applied lu building the road of
the company, w hich building was one of
the purposes for which the corporation
was created. The company may have
paid too much, and did for the road that
It got, but the constitution does not pro
hibit contractors who build roads from
making a profit on their labor. It is cer
taiuly not the purpose of the constitution
to prohibit a company from
issuing stock, except dollar for dol
lar us an actual dollar's worth
of labor or material is put Into the road
A cult In thU eauo would, WO believe, TO'
suit in declaring j'-vw.iwu or
the ..O0Q,00u of the stock null
and void, and lu proving tliat
the contractors did not, although they
are to be paid In full, build the
road according to contract; that several
of the gentlemen who voted as stock
holders at the late meeting are not stock
holders, that they hold the void stock
which they received for services that may
have been dark but were not certainly
vain. Hut who wilt commence such a
suit? The City Council will not? It has
liecn convinced that ti suit of tho kind
would be useless ; and It might be. The
County Commissioners will not. Possi
bly another, but also a potent influence,
has been upon thein, and they, too, have
come to the conclusion that there Is no
u In making fuss and trouble about the
little road about stock that is wortli
nothing.
RpliKloiiN IIpium.
The colored Methodists continue un
der a financial cloud.
The Presbyterians have not yet called
any person to 1111 the pulpit made vacant
by the retirement of Dr. Thayer.
A Spiritual Lyceum ought to bo es
tablished in Cairo, an attractive me
dium procured and seauees cheap for
cash announced.
The children of thu Kplscopal church
will have a festival in Thornton's build
ing soon. Active preparations are being
made. No doubt it will be n success.
Wo have now lu Cairo but two white
Protestant ministers, Hector Gilbert and
Jtev. Mr. Wallar. Tho Presbyterians,
Baptists and Canipblcites, arc w ithout
shepherds.
The Free Keligious Society, like tho
churches, has become- Inactive. Hot
weather makes Infidelity, as well as
Christianity, lazy. Tho late backward
movement of Spiritualism, that some
time ago advanced along the whole Hue,
has contributed something, wo presume,
to the apathy of our Free Religionists.
Wc have two commenced churches
the Catholic and the Baptist. The foun
dations of the churches were laid long
ago, and then work upou them was dis
continued. Want of money, a disease as
dangerous to religious as to worldly en
terprises, prevented these temples from
going up any farther. Tho worldly, who
believe they will never bo lluished, say
with slangy humor that they have "gone
up."
Itev. Mr. Bradley, tho colored saint
who lias been sorely persecuted by sin
ners, having been arrested several times
for hog and corn stealing, persists lu
ministering to the spiritual wants of Ids
congregation. Ho proposes at an early
day to go into the materializing business,
after the manner of Mott. Tho business
Is more profitable and less dangerous, If
not more honest, than hog and corn steal
ing. Itev. Mr. Davis, f the .Vioi, should
be Induced to attempt a revival of relig
ion in this city, lie Is a powerful prayer.
On tho day of tho Missouri governor's
grasshopper prayers, ho went to Missis
sippi county, lu that State, and It Is said
his petition disposed of nt least a million
of the long-leggedjuniping pests, Under
favorable circumstances the conditions
being right, as tho Spiritualists say he
can supplicate with the reputed power of
the Keely Motor 20,000 pounds to the
square Inch.
Miinlrliinl Ilcint.
Mayor Winter Is growing corpulent
on the Honors of his high ofllce. He
weighs ten pounds more than he did at
election time.
Health olllcer Brown Is attentive to
his business. He Is always "on the go,"
and does much toward keeping the city
In a clean and healthy condition.
-Authority for the street-labor ordi
nance Is found lu n law passed by the
present General Assembly, In force the
1st day of the present month. So, the
boys may get ready to do work upon our
thoroughfares or pay one dollar anil fifty
cents.
When the street laborers are sum
moned by the Street Supervisor, hereafter
to be appointed, an army of them should
be put at work on Washington avenue
between KigMconth street and Cant.
Halllday's residence. The avenue around
about the court house is lu u very bad
condition.
Tho journal of tho last meeting of
the City Council Is published tills morn
ing on our second page. There is in it
evidence that the Council means business
about the railroad matter, but Councils
are much given to wavering, and in
all likelihood ordinance 101, adopted
with so much nourish, will become a
dead cock in tho pit,
If the Council would meet at two
o'clock in the afternoon, and stay In ses
sion without recess until midnight, it
might pass more ordinances. Ordinances
are great institutions, The more a city
adopts that ltdocs not enforce the better
for the community. Dead letter ordi
nance are good things to have In the or
dinance book. They look well and hurt
nobody.
Chief of Police Williams is ot the
opinion, wc havo no doubt, the City
Council Is desperately mean and alto
gether lost to every liberal emotion. He.
made some debts got gas fixtures put
in police headquarters, and so forth. The
bills were sent in to the Council, which
bluntly referred them to the Chief for
pavmcnt. He will probably pay, but he
will have an opinion ol the aldermen.
Shall the Cairo stock lu the Narrow
Gauge road lie given up to secure the
building of the machine shops of that
road In Cairo V Is the question. We w ould
agree, that when the shops have been lo
cated here, built and a certain number of
men employed, the stock .should be sold
to the company for a nominal .sum all
that it w ill be worth for many years. We
should not pay for something we have
not got.
The billiard table ordinance is tints
Justified: "If a per.-on keeps a place of
public resort, puts up billiard tables and
advertises them for hire, he must pay
license. The city cannot watch tosee If he
uses them. That they are Intended for
public use, for hire, is sutllclont." This
is all right ; but the ordinance goes too
iur. i, proposes to do what it cannot do
make the keeper ..i i,utel, w,o owns

July 15, 1S75.
1 o-day has given promise ot lair
weather. Tho clouds have disappeared
from the sky, and although the sun shone
excessively hot, tho day has been breezy
and pleasant. According to Professor
TIce, wc will be freo from rains lor a lew
days. The storms that have prevailed
for a week past have been general. All
tho bottom lands havu been inundated
and an immense area of growing corn
has been destroyed. Tho wheat crop all
through Southern Illinois has been in-
jured by sprouting, and the tobacco crops
In this section have u poor outlook. It Is
hard totell what tho result w ill be.
The Cairo market has held unchanged
since our last issue. Corn Is scarce and
wanted. Prices arc shaded lu favor of
sellers. Butter Is looking up in price
with tin Increased demand lor choice and
light receipts. Other branches present no
new features.-
THE .MARKET.

CHICKENS.
There Is a good demand for old hens
to ship and all on tho market were taken
early. Receipts do not enu.il the de
mand. Voting chickens are plenty and
of slow sale. We note sales of 5 coops
young, $2 50 ; 3 coops young, $2 23; 2
coops old hens, $3 75 ; 25 dozen young,
S2a 50 ; coops old hens, $3 75.

The market rules steady and active for

25 third bushel boxes tomatoes 5075o ;
15 boxes lemons SO 5010 00.
POTATOES.
There is very little doing in this line,
owing to the fact that country wagons
supply the demand for home consumption
and there Is no shipping demand. Quo
tations to-day are 1550c per bushel for

The market rules steady w itli a ten
