'i'hey are unlike photograph, being
raised and beautifully enameled over the
ntlro durlace, wilt In tone, but distinct In
the lights and Mioden. No one who sees
them falls to admire them, or to give the
artlft an order. We have been ehown a
number of pictures or well-known indies
mid gentlemen of the elty, and have no
hesitation In pronouncing them iH-rfectly
splendid. We would then-ton- advl-e all
who take Interest In such matters or tie

Those people who came all the way
from Paducah and other places along the

At the meeting of the city council
held on Tuesday evening, Alderman
Wright offered a resolution to appoint a
committee whose duty It should be to
confer with Col. Staats Taylor, and the
ofllccrs of the Cairo & St. Louis railroad,
and ascertain of them what they proposed
doing, if anything, in regard to the Mis
sissippi levee. The Mayor appointed as
such committee, Aldermen Wright, Lan
caster, Nellls, Itlttenhouscand Vocum.
John Clancy Is still much Interested
in the matter of Cairo's getting up a fair.
He says if the Taylor Literary Club and
Boating Association will volunteer to
give a scries of entertainments during
the winter, and donate the proceedings
towards getting up a fair, there Is but lit
tle doubt that au association would be
organized in the early Spring. Clancy is
enthusiastic over the idea oi a fair, and
says he Is willing to subscribe money and
time towards bringing the matter to a
focus.
J. Hurgcr & Co. have now on hand
tho most elegant stock of 2 and .'t button
Kid Gloves ever brought to tills city, and
nre determined to (-ell them at remark
ably low tlgurcs.
Some one has been going for Gold
stein & Jtosenwater's valises, tine dress
goods, &c. 'I'hey made a good haul from
that establishment ou Monday night, and
succeeded in carrying oil about two hun
dred dollars worth of stufl. Sheriff Irvin
was Informed of the matter on Tuesday,
ind lost no time In notifying the ofllcers
ot the surrounding towns to look out for
the guilty ones. One of the parties has
been caged, und the other one w 111 be, be
fore long.
In a recent Issue of the IIui.lktin it
was stated that trains ou the Cairo - St.
Louis railroad had stopped running to
tlie station of tlie company in couse-
quenee of the danger Incurred by parsing
over that portion of the road near the wash
in the Mississippi levee. We made the
statement ou what. we supposed good au
thority, but since the publication of the
item we learn there Is no truth Id the re
port, and that all trains make their stop
pages at the station in tlie lower partof
town, as usual.
-An exenange says : "The Academy
ot Music was again packed last night
with au audience composed ot our very
best citizens. The success achieved by
Mr. Nobles and his model combination
has been instantaneous and complete.
Our record of amusements for years past
presents no parallel to their cast. The
specialty entertainment Is a model of ele
gait humor, and Mr. Ernest ltyno Is
truly entitled to the appellation, 'won
derful.' All previous performances of
female characters by one of the sterner
sex, sink into Insignificance In compart
sou to this great artist."
Yesterday morning A. J. Carl, after
thinking over what might happen should
a lire break out iu tlie neighborhood of
his livery stable, got uneasy, and taking
a crow-bar, went in search of a reservoir
that ho knew was somewhere In the
neighborhood of the public well, near
the city scales. After digging about for
some time, he finally struck a plank im
mediately opposite tho store of Ullman
which he tore up, and to his surprise and
pleasure, found the thing lie was looking
for, namely, tho reservoir. It is lull to
the top with water, and should there be
any call lor the firemen iu that neighbor
hood, they will Hud water plenty there
A new covering Is now being put over
the reservoir.
Te funeral services of the late M. S.
Cox, will take placo at tho Presbyterian
church this afternoon at forty-live min
utes after one o'clock. All friends of the
family are Invited to attend. After the
services at the church, the remains will
be placed upon the Illinois Central train
and taken to Plttsflcld, where they will
be Interred. Mr. Cox was a resident of
Flttstlcld for several years, being engaged
while thero iu the grocery business. At
the breaking out of tho war, he sold out
his business iu that place, camo to Cairo
and entored the quartermaster's depart
ment here, under Capt. A. O. Woolfock,
At the close of tho war, ho entered the
book store of Mr. W. U. Rockwell, and
remained iu the store ws tuauagcr until
the llrst of March, ISC), when he became
a partner, nnd has rcmninncd hi tho firm
since that time. At the beginning of the
administration of ex-Mayor John Wood,
Mr. Cox accepted the position of elty
constable, or which olllce ho fulllllt-d tho
duties urtll it was abolished. Ho was a
prominent member of the Presbyterian
church, and a gentleman respected by all
who knew him. InhisiUath our city
has lost a useful and upright citizen.
The disease which caused his death was
bronchial consumption. He was llrst at
tacked with It about a year ago, and has
since slowly failed In health until Tues
day, when lie succumbed to his de
stroyer. All O. H.

From pilots of the City of Vlckxhurjf,
we learned last evening that the Mary
Bell has got out of her second dlfllculty
and will be along as soon as she can take
her freight ou board.
Capt. W. II. Halinger so well and
favorably known In this city, Is doing a
thriving business lu New Orleans, at Xo.

some of the finest boats on the river and
among the rest we notice the great Mary
Hell.
The Mary Bell got back up out of her
predicament at Twin Hollows.cvcnlng be
fore last, and started across the river to
come down around the troublesome
point when she had the misfortune to get
aground again broadside, on the polntof a
mud bar, and was In a worse nx
than ever at latt accounts, being perfectly
light and the river falling. Blocks and
rigging were sent her trom St. Louis, and
she will be pulled on It posslulc. inu
detention of their magnlticcnt stc.uncr is
a great misfortune to Captains Hicks and

people all along the rivers who have been
waiting for her coming.
