Antrim Lone n Window
On Wednesday morning, olllcer.s
Woolen and Schuster, while attempting
to arrest a man who had been engaged
lu a row, got Into too close proximity to
one of the large windows In Antrim's
clothing store on the levee, and one of
the party was shoved through It. The
man was caged, but Mr. Antrim suffers
a pecuniary loss, by the transaction, of
about eight dollars.
i ne two young men, one oi wiiom is
named Cantelll, who were urrcsted by
Slicrill'IrvIn on Wednesday night, while
they were passing through this city on
board the steamer James Howard, and
from whom the ollicer recovered some
twenty-two hundred dollars which they
had stolen from a gentleman in New Or
leans, were still in the city yesterday af
ternoon awaiting the orders of the New
Orleans parties as to what Miould be
done with them.
The position .Mayor N Inter haa as
sumed In regard to the signing of the city
scrip voted Officers Schuster and Whit
camp for labor during the month of July
seems to give the officers but very little
uneasiness. They declare that at present
they are not 'hard up," but that when
they arc in want of money, they will
compel His Honor to put his name upon
the scrip. "If a bird won't sing of hi
own free will," says Officer Schuster, "he
can be made to sing."
It wa reported yesterday timt Mr.
Perry Powers, the liveryman, had found
the valuable strcy mare hired by the ne
gro woman. KUcu Wadklni, but on in
quiry, we found the report to be false.
Word was received by Mr. Powers that
the marc had been seen on Tuesday on a
ridge between the IlllnoN Central and
Cairo & Vlncennes railroads, between
here and Mound City, but upon going to
the ridge no trace of the animal could be
found, and the owner has given up all
hope of recovering her.
TbrMayor anil Pollcpuivn,
Notwithstanding the fact that the City
Council, at their lat meeting, voted
officers Schuster and Whitcatnp sixty
dollars each, full pay lor the month of
July, the Mayor has refused to, and em
phatically declares that he will not, sign
Ills name to the scrip. This fact has cre
ated considerable talk among the people
of the city, the opinions on the subject
being at variance. Some think the Mayor
is justified in his action, while others cen
sure him for the course he Is pursuing.
Whether he will, of his own accord,
change his inind In regard to the matter,
remains to be seen.

Wade Hampton, head bell boy attheSt.

A large number ot young ladles and
gentlemen of this city aemb!ed nt the
residence of Doctor nml Mrs Gardner,

ticipated In one ol the most enjoyable
events of the season. The occasion wa
that of tho celebration of the seven
teenth birthday of Mls Mary Wnrdner,
a young lady esteemed and honored by
all who knew her, and a niece of the
above-named lady and ,geiitl?man. The
guets were entertained In the most ap
proved style, Mr." and Mrs. Wardner
andMI9 Mary making every effort lu
their povfer to make the event one of un
bounded pleasure, which they did to the
entire satKaction of all.
Thcscond game of the s.erlc, between
the Panic club of Mound City, and the
Comets, of Cairo, was played at the
Thirty-fourth street grounds on Wednes
day afternoon. The gamo was, from li
ghtning to end, very Interesting, and oc
casioned more excitement among the ball
players of this city than any contest that
has taken place this season. The game
was very creditably played on both sides,
It being six of one and a half dozen of
the other throughout, and, up till the list
player was dispo-cd of, was very uncer
tain. The Mound City boys, however,
proved too much for Cairo by Just one
run, the score standing eleven to ten. In
favor of the Panics.
We sent two dispatches to the Chicago
Timti on Tuesday evening, In one of
which we stated that a Citizens' Associa
tion had been organized to develop the
suptribr position of Cairo. It appeared
in the Timor, "inferior position." The
Sun blames us ; but the fellow who is to
die at the hands of the Citizens' Asso

The business prospect In leading ar
ticles of commission Is rather discourag'
ng at present. The greatest drawback
Iscetus to bo the inability of merchants to
get supplies to fill their orders. The
market Is b'jre ot llour, and orders are
held over, but advices show that more
liberal receipts may be cxju'Cled in a day
or two. T hero Is some Inquiry for hay

Is in demand and none lu market, and no
prospects of receipts soon. Old oats are
wanted at 05c and none oflciing. The
