A Plain Picture of Cairo Life," which
will long be remembered by all who
heard him. lie severely reproached the
pies- and public for tlie vivacity with
which they grasped an opportunity to
censure a clergyman, saying that the lo
cal columns were ever ready to announce
the fact that a mlnUter had been detected
in some lieiuou- crime, white tlie edito
rial department come-; forth with
blazing head-line, followed bv long,
sarcastic and scathing articles, heaping
dUgraee and ruin upon him. Hutlnc
men, said lie, who should be at their
labors, neglected their duties that they
might congregate with their neighbors to
ridicule and cast their .-lurs upon the
fallen, lie did not, lie wished III- hearers
to know, look upon the sins of a clergy
man witli a partial eye. When a mini
terol'the go-pel sinned when lie took
idvantage of his po-Itlou to commit
crime, lie should, he firmly believed, he
stripped ot his place in tlie pulpit be
driven from society, and should not be
again permitted to resume religious
duties. Tlie mot rigid punl-liment
should be meted out to him. It was also
his opinion that business men, it mat
tered not who they were or what might
be their social standing, should be dealt
with likewi-e. Hut It was not so. When
n mercantile gentleman was caught com
mitting tlie crime tor which a preacher
would have to sutler reproach and degra
dation would lie the target for the local
and editotial column ol tlie newspapers
to shoot tlielr crltiei-ms the papers, in
stead of crying out against him, would
remark that such a crime hail been perpe
trated, but owing to the respect
ability aud high standing of the
gentleman accused, his name would be
withheld. Ills crime was p.i-ed by
without public cen-uru or comment ;
Ills social pn-iiiou was not athcted ; he
u-a received into soclely tlie Srtlliu lis
helore ills true character was pictured
to the world, while the minister had
fallen to rl-e no more. Mr.. Gilbert
then said there was another mailer that
he wl-hed to speak of, which did not,
however, refer to tho original topic,
liu then went on to say that there
were man v people who criticised the
private lives nnd persoi al actions of min
isteis. Tills lie did not consider becom
ing lu either a man or a woman. A min
ister's home, he said, was his castle, aud
after his religious duties had been udheml
to, no oiio had any right to criticise his
actions. He felt, lie said, that he would
he fullj as Justifiable lu going from ono
of his neighbor's to another, and criti
cise their mode ot life, as his neighbor
had to criticize him lu his personal af
fairs, so long as he conducted himself as
became Ills position.

stated that when he laid down he bail

that he had been robbed. On Thursday.

and that counterfeit ten dollar notes on

about thu city In n lively manner. They
set to work to ferrit out thu partn s who
were guilty of the crime, hut failed to

In company with .Mr. 11. A. Tlioius
we visited tlie lcve yesterday and found
a party of Government engineers survey
ing the shore between the rock pile aud
Dickey's Island, w here their camp is lo
cated, aud from them we learned that
they have been sent here by General
Simpson to make surveys, soundings,
maps, etc., looking to tlie building ot
tlie improvements so much needed. The
party Is composed of Engineers J. D.
McKown, T. P. Sliroader, Howell
Boruss, L. Lowe, and others. Tills party
made a Mirvev of Ihe bank at tliat point
one year ago, and were astonished on re
turning to Hud that a post near the rock
piles was the only one lelt ol all the
marks they had then established. The
liver had swallowed them all.
In about eight days they will be able to
tell accurately how many yards tho river
lias cut into tho bank during the past
year. General Simpson l experted here
to-day with the new Iron boat lately
built at St. Louis.
