Iron Works, has In his blacksmith shop
a steam hammer, that he is extremely

great admiration. We don't blame him.
If we had it we would take to it as Ren

It Is said that tho Thallan Club,
which afforded our lovers of dancing

at.d propose giving a grand bull nt the St.

come, nnd thu youuger portion of tho
community are so anxious for an
opportunity to "shako their foot," that 11
graud succe3s awuits those who will give
u party,
From a reliable source, we lea'rn that
DcGruth, tho man who got away from
Sheriff Irvlu near Allcntown, Pennsyl
vania, a few days ago, wlulo being
brought to this city to bo tried for ob
taining a divorce from his wife In tlio
Alexander county court somo threo years
ago, under false oath, Is up to such little
games. We nro told that on another oc
casion, when he was under arrest nnd
nboard the cars, ho jumped from tho train
when it was running at tho rate of thirty
five miles an hour, nnd escaped without
any injury whatever. We are told also
that DoGrath practiced tho (eat of Jump-
tug from a hoi-M's back when the animal
was at full speed, and that ho became so
well up to tho trick that he could per
form it without the least danger.
To bo a polo" one of the little tol
tows who jingle and nothing else Is bad
enough 5 but when such a "polo" has a
bad printer coupled with him, and a bad
proof reader tied to him also, what a
dreadful mess is made of the weak
rhymes! The "Little Rhymes," pub
llshcd !u tho Bulletin yesterday, were
spoiled in this way ; and, being the little
poet ourself who wrote tho little thing,
we are a little angry about the matter,
und have disposed, in our wrath, of the
little hair of our head. Thero Is little
left ot the printer who made the blunder,
and an eager Frost has nipped the root
of tho wretched proof reader.
Capt. E. V. Wilson will lecturo ngaln
to-night. He Is n very able de
fender of Spiritualism nnd nu eloquent
speaker, ills arguments are, In our
opinion, not very strong with men who
don't believe in thu Inspiration of the
Scriptures, but arc hard nuts when
Christians undertake to crack them. On
the other hand, his arguments to prove
that the Scriptures prove Spiritualism,
prove either that Spiritualism has been thu
strongest ally that Christianity has ever
had that, In fact, Spiritualism proves
Christianity, or else, that Spiritualism
Is thu greatest liar that ever Imposed
upon humanity. We cannot understand
how Capt. Wilson can escape from this
dilemma; but he may be enabled to du
eo, for although a large man, weighing
probably 240, he can get out of the small
est hole ever mortal crawled through.
We understood the correspondent ol
the Sun, who writes under the signature
of "Engineer," to insist that u public
meeting should without delay proceed to
make arrangements to build u new levee.
In his first communication he suggested
the meeting for the purpose Indicated ;
nnd when, ugreelug with him that some
thing must be done, we said : If a meet
ing is to be held, should we not delay it
uutll Col. Taylor returns? the Sun,
speaking for Engineer" us we believed,
Insisted upon 110 delay- -wanted the inecf-
Ing "right oil," Taylor or no Taylor.
But, it appears from "Engineer's" com
munication of yesterday evening, that he
is not nn unreasonable, fussy fellow like
the.SVN man. He is willing to make
ha;lu slowly, as we must in this mat
ter. Speaking lor oursell, we
have no hesitation in saying, that we do
not want the expense of protecting Cairo
put upon the shoulders of the city, if we
can get it upon the shoulders of thcTrus
tecs, railroad company or general govern
ment. Cairo cannot stand up under, any
heavier burdens than she now carries, and
wc shall expect that the Trustees will
either compel the C. & St. L. R. It.
Co. to repair the levee or do the work
themselves. But, In fact, as "Citizen"
says elsewhere to-day in these columns,
thu reparation of the levee will not be a
permanent protection. What Is required
is work that will throw the river into
its former channel, and this work the
government ought to do without un
necessary delay.

Will Hi
Editor Bulletin Dt r Sir 1 Tho
momentous question at present Is the
precarious condition of our levees on tho
Mississippi river, In the upper part of the
city. Various plans are being discussed,
and there the question seems to rest.
In the Sun of the 29th, "Engineer"
comes to the front with his plan of build
ing a new levee. It may doubtless be a
good one, but would It not be only tem
porary relief? The river will continue
to cut until the channel is changed, and
would we not have to continue building
new levees? Why not, instead of at
tempting to inuke what appears to me to
be only n temporary relief, endeavor
to have the channel of thu river
changed to Its original position? If tho
cost to do this should be greater than to
build new levees, would not thu In
creased security more than compensate V
Why do not our Influential men, now
that thu government has taken a hand In
the business, use their energies to lnllu
encetne government to do this work
change the channel and not en
deavor to Impose new burdens
ou nu already -overtaxed peo
ple, by building new levees, which
the people, it appears, would havu tn pay
lor? People bought property here with
the expectation that all danger of being
drowned out would be carefully guarded
against.
No proper precautious to prevent such
u catastrophy seem to have been taken.
Too much money has been wasted In
Cairo In useless improvements, nnd I
think it about time to come down from
our stilts, uud, ll anything be done, make
It stay, If possible. In my opinion, the
only safe and substantial manner to pro
tect our levees is to change the river Into
Its original channel. Temporary relief
will not give a feeling of security, and so
long as such a feeling exists so long will
proicrty In Cairo bo at a discount, nnd
the prosperity of the city retarded.
