and as much work as possible is being

Wilson, the Spiritual man, challenges
the Christian ministers ot Cairo to debate

tion, but tint matter ot It bungllugly ex

of them on the platform of the Free Iie

We stated yesterday morning that
James Cassidy, who had been arrested
for stealing in a house of ill fame.had been
discharged, Mayor Whiter nnd another
person testifying that Cassidy had been
with them from 12 to 3 o'clock on tho
night of tho robbery. This Item, hastily
written, has left a false impression the
Impression that Ills Honor keeps bad
company and lute hours. The fact is, the
Mayor testified that, ou the night of the
robliery, w saw Cassidy ut the Oreeloy
Arc n( i2 o'clock, that Cassidy worked at
the lire nnd was doing the duty of a fire
man until il o'clock. This was His
Honor's tcstlmoiiyi Our report or It,
while It gave the substance ot It fairly)
was, we are convinced, liable to leave a
false Impression ; and therefore this ex
planation. The Trustees of the Cairo City Prop
erty, when they gave to the Cairo & St.
Louis railroad company the right of way
over the Mississippi levee, bound that
company In an agreement to protect tlie
leveu from the encroachments of the
river. The resident trustee, Col. Taylor,
several months ago notilled lite company
Hint certain work ought to bu done under
this agreement, but the company did
nothing. Whether It Intends to do any
thing we do not know. We have heard
that Mr. Cauda had consulted a govern
ment official, and that the official who
has charge of river Improvements above
Cairo on the Mississippi had promised to
visit this city and ascertain what work
ought to be done here. Hut the official
has not yet arrived, or. If he has, some
body has kept hlni carelully concealed;
and, if Mr. Cauda Is doing anything, In
formation ot the fact has not reached us.
Probably Mr. Cauda and the government
official believe that It Is Impertinent In the
people of Cairo to desire to know their
Intentions ; but they should remember
that the people of Cairo have much Inter
est In their proposed action, ami they
should, ut least, giro us a hint of their
We attended the Sunday night lec
ture ot Wilson, the Spiritualist, who Is
now talking and selling books and pa
pers to our people. Wc were very much
pleased with hltn. He Is the only Spirit
ual medium that lias visited Cairo during
our residence In the clly, who was not, In
our opinion, both a bore and a humbug.
All the ret have either talked the flattest
commonplaces In the worst possible lan
gttage, or ele have Indulged In tricks the
most transparent and called them spirit
ual manifestations. Wilson Is, as all per
sons must be who talk much on the
threadbare subject of religion, sometimes
weak in his arguments, but he Is generally
an Incisive and logical speaker, and is
not often uninteresting. Ho Is n man of
intellect, up in his business, and, as he
said on Sunday night, haying the most
absolute confidence In himself, he would
not hesitate to tell the devil that Wilson
knows nil about him and his ancestors.
After Ihe lecture Mr. Wilson undertook
to do, without touching tlie head of the
subject, all that a phrenologist could do;
without touching the body, as dellnitely
describe its ailments as the most skillful
physician after careful examination could
do; and without either seeing, hearing
or knowing the person, tell events In his
lite, giving dates and details. What is
more, Wilson did what he undertook to
do in this regard. He is us glib and accu
rate n phrenologist as Fowler; but,
tlien. Dr. 1'arker says phrenology is a
humbug. He did diagnosis disease cor
rectly ; and he did tell of events that had
liapH?ned in the lives of several per-
sons In tho room. Of course
lie Is nothing but a L'ood
gucsscr, who has studied human
nature thoroughly, and Is helped out bv
the possession of that mysterious some
thing called clairvoyance. lie deals
greatly in generalities, intimates more
than he says and often blunders; but,
upon the whole, he is remarkable In his
demonstrations ol me possession or a
wonderful power ho calls spiritual me
dittmslilp, but which is something else.
He is worth hearing; and nobody will
lose anything by seeing him, for he is a
fine looking old gentleman one of
the olden school Infected by model n
Mr. M. II. llarrell, in his Gazette Is
sued yesterday, makes the following true
remarks : "Unimproved town lots in tlie
city ot Cdro nre valued for purposes of
taxation, at .. ii.gher figure than like
town lots are valued In Chicago ; twenty
five per cent, higher than they are in
Quiiicy or Peoria ; sixty per cent, higher
than in Springfield and Uloomiugton, and
more than one hundred per cent, higher
than they are in any city of like popula
tion in Illinois. These facts were brought
to the comprehension of our State Board
of Equalization through the eflortsof our
ex-Mayor Wilson, and material reduc
tions were made, in one Instance as high
as llfty per cent, lint as fast as the Hoard
put the valuation down our county asses
sors put it up again, until finally our
august equalizers concluded that we
ought to know what our own property Is
worth, and then let our figures stand al
most unchanged. Meanwhile central and
northern Illinois profited by tho Intlma-
Hons thrown out by the Board, and put
their realty down, until they can, when
compared with Alexander county pro
perty holders, scarcely be considered tax
payers at all."
The Interest among the horsemen in
this section, In the coming races at
Charleston. Missouri, is unusually notice
able. Some of the fastest nnd most noted
trotting, pacing nml running horses to be
found in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky
and Tennessee, numbering between sev
enty and seventy-live head, had arrived
in the town on Sunday night, and mote
were expected. Among the horses best
known to our tin fincn arc the running
horses "Plu Tad," owned by Tom ho-
gan, of Murphysboro ;5Conlon and Mo
ron's "MoNalry," owneti ai Charleston,
and a horse called the "Knight of St.
Louis," owned m Jackson county.
There are several other fast runners to be
entered In the free lor all running race,
but the three horses named above are con
sidered the only ones that stand any
elmnco of carrying off the purse.
There Is n diversity of opinion ns regards
tho ability of "Pin Tad," "MoNnlry"
nnd "Knight of St.Louls," some believing
that 'Pin Tad" will go under the string
first, others that "knight of St. Louis'
will bo first to get there, while the horso
"McNalry" will be backed to n man by
the Mlssourlaus. Tho race will bo very
exciting, nnd a big pllo of money will
change hands, It matters not which horse
wins. A largo number of trotting horses
nro In twining, and tho free for all raeo
Is looked lonvard to with much Interest.
The moat experienced horsemen to be
found In the city on Sunday gavo It as
their opinion that the horse that carries
away tlie money will have to trot below
two minutes nnd thlrly-llvc seconds
time seldom equaled hi (his section of
country. There are pacing horses on tho
grounds that are claimed to be good for
two minutes and thirty seconds when
cnlled on. AUlong these Is n horse owned
by Tom Logan, and "Hob Lco"and "Hilly
Hoy," both owned by Maurice Moran.
There Is also n Kentucky mnru that will
start in the free for all pacing race (hat
is said to he "oil from tho can," and It is
believed It will take n hard struggle to
beat her. Other horses by tho score are
entered for the races named, but (hose we
have mentioned are looked upon as tho
ones that are most likely to win. All in
all the races of this year promise to be
the most exciting, ever seen on (he

After hearing several motions, the
case of the People vs. Safl'ord and Morll!
was taken up by the court. It Is case In
attachment for Ihe violation of an Injunc
tion granted against the Cairo & Vln
cennes railroad. The Injunction pro
hibited Ihe C.&. V.H. II. from switching
or standing any car above Sixth street,
ou Commercial avenue. Morrill and
Saflord secured by petition
an order allowing them to build a switch
between Nineteenth and Twentieth
streets, to switch ears, and to stand and
unload cars on said switch. There Is
quite a tight about the facts In issue. Af
ter hearing the arguments of Messrs. I).
T. Llnegar and J. II. Mulkcy, for the
People, ami W. B. Gilbert for the defend
ants, the court took the case under con
sldfratlon.and will not, In all probability,

This Is a new style of picture now be
ing produced by Win. Winter, the artist,
of till city. These picture are creating
much Interest In all the principal Eastern
and Western cities, being altogether new.
They are unlike photographs, being
raised anil beautifully enameled over the
entire surface, soft in tone, but distinct in
the light. and shades. No one who sees
them falls to admire them, or to give tho
artist an order. We have been shown :i
number of pictures of well-known ladies
and gentlemen of the city, and have no
hesitation In pronouncing them perfectly
splendid. We would therefore advise all
who lake Interest In such matters or do
sire plclure, to call upon Mr. Winter at
his gallery and examine his work in this
new branch of the shadow-capturing art.
