Those of our citizens who have had
their fears that the new levee would not
be completed in time to prevent an over
flow may now begin to brtatha easy. The
levee will be completed in good time.
Yesterday there was upwards of scventy-
tlv scrapers golug, and the way the dirt
was rolled up was a caution. It is esti
mated that four thousand yards of dirt
was placed on the embankment during
the day. If the good weather coutluues
till Saturday that portion of the work
from the cross levee to the old grave
yard ridgo will be completed.
Captain W. P. Uallidayhas had, from
almost the first day the work was com
tnenced, eleveu teams at work on the new
levee ; and the contractors leel that they
are under especial obligations to him for
the assistance he has rendered them iu
this respect. It has been an exceedingly
dltlkult matter to employ teams the wet
weather and other causes combining to
keep men who had teams from allowing
them to go on the work. But it is be
lieved and hoped that in the future the
contractors will be able to procure all tho
lielp Uisy require.

Catching the boy at It, Mr. Thlelecke
chastised him. The boy told his father,
and on Tuesday evening, meeting Mr.
Thlelecke ns above stated, Mr. Hill
knocked him down and gave him a
severe beating, bruising him pretty
badlv. A warrant tor Hill was taken
out, and the trial will come off before
Squire Comings on Saturday morning.

Mayor's Office, City ok Cairo, 1
Caiiio, III., Dec, 14, 1875.
To tlic city Council of the City ofCalro;
Okntlgubn Some time since I was re
quested as Mayor of cltr or Cairo, by a
convention held at Vicksburg, Missis
ilppl, composed of prominent railroad
ineti, merchants and citizens of Southern
States, to appoint one or more delegates
to attend any subsequent meeting or
meetings ordered by said convention.
One such meeting ha been hold at New
Orleans, and adjourned to meet shortly
elsewhere. The objeet of said meetings
is to memorialize Congress to give aid
lor the Improvement of the Mississippi
levees In the Mississippi Valley, thereby
making the soli adjacent valuable to the
owners and the general government as a
tax paying community. Souther Illi
nois, and especially Cairo, being detpiy
interested In the movement, I deem It my
duty to-night to appoint a committee of
three persons to attend said meeting ; to
use their influence in tht cause and to the
Interest of Cairo. In appointing said
committee, aad recommending the con
firmation of the same, I do so In the be
lief they are proper persons to repre
sent the city ol Cairo and the State of
Illinois among st our Southern b re them.
I will, therefore, by and with your con
sent, appoint as said committee Cant. W.
M. Williams, Col. I. B. Hudson and MaJ.
Edward Halllday.
In appointing these citizens as the
comasittee or delegates, I do so. that they
accept the appolatraent with the under
