"What action will the city council take
to prevent the Culro and St. Louis rail
road company from laying their traek on

many of our citizens are wrestling. As

we venture to say.that body will be heard
from on the subject when the proper
time comes.

At no time since the new levee was
commenced has the work progressed so
favorably as at tho present. The fine

A celebrated physician ot Cairo. Illi
nois, not unknown hereabouts, was re
cently called to see a patient outot Cairo,
very low witu consumption, u was ap
parent that the sick man was gradually
drawing to his end, aud as he
owed the doctor n "little bill" for profes
sional service, me mcuicino man ueemeu
it prudent to lead the diseased mind to
the consideration of this hill. He
therefore kindly spoko to him of tho
nearness oi ins enu auu uio uecos-uty oi
putting his house lu order for the change.
Tho sick man replied that he wasouceuii
exemplary Cangregatlonallst, but had
uacK-suuucn, i lie doctor remarked tuni
It was not too late to set his house to
rights as tho good book said, that as long
as the lamp holds out to burn, the vil
est shiner might get back, or words
to that effect, aud there wus still
a hope for him. The poor Invalid
cast his eyes heavenward for a moment,
then turulnir to the nhvslelan who had
so -tenderly reminded him of the near
npproacn oi ueatii, reinHiKeu, "I'octor,
will vou Drav with' me i" This tcr
geretl tho professional man ; he wanted
pay and conldnot pry, hut to avoid the
latter, ceased 'to lead his patient to an
any
and,
further contemplation or his latter
or that "little blll.-i'ac. ton C'ownfw Km.
The Era man dot i not tell the story
correctly. The doc or Is not a "praying
man," and that hi Was "staggered" Is
true ; but ho had g 10 so far that there
was uo other courK for him than to coin
ply with tho dying nan's request. He
knew several Masoi ic prayers, a portion
of the Lttauy, and lone or two prayers
of a certain churth service; by jum
bling them together he managed to get
oil a pretty fair son of a prayer ; and the
patient seemed to pel better from having
listened to It. When the doctor had fin
ished and was abo t to leave the house,
the patient bland f remarked tbat ho
would arrange to ave the doctor's bill
paid It should be 'paid In com." The
doctor has never tence given a patient an
opportunity to alt blm to pray with
him. '
The Seidell Irjvln theatrical combina
tion, ene of t lie beat lu the country, will
commence a three nights' engagement
at the Athencutn lu this city, on Christ
mas night, fsclden Irwin Is no stranger
t the amusement-loving people of Cairo,
aud Indeed a great favorite with many.
They place upon the boards, for the llrst
time In this city, Augusttn Daly's great
hew York sensation, "Big Bonanza,
and that It will draw. an immense kouse,
we are almost sure. The coiumous (uuiu;
Journal, relerring to the play as pre
sented by the Selden Irwin troupe In
that city, says :
Auirustin Daly's New York sensation,
the Big Bonauza, had Its first presenta
tion iu Lttiumuus iai mem oeiore a
larra audience ouo of the most aonrecl-
ative and discriminating that could be
obtained by a close 1 'sift" of the city.
The play bad a great run, and has com
manded the admiration or the theatre-
going public In nearly all the principal
cities and towns, clear across the conti
nent. Columbus Is Indebted to the Sei
dell Irwin combination for assuring It
the production of one of the most noted
of modern plays, and In a style beflttlnr
Its reputation and the reputation ot the
author.
Mr. llarrv Kainlorth takes the nart of
Professor Cadwallader, an eccentric indi
vidual engrossed in scientific pursuits,
who quarrels with Jonathan Cadwalla
der, a rich banker and broker, on the
question as to whether stock speculation
requires a genuine article of brains. To
test the matter, Jonathan sets the profes
sor up In business and precipitates him In
fluanclal aud stock gambling so deep that
the old gentleman soon loses sight ot
"chemical combinations," and the like,
and plunges into Big Bonanza mining
stock with desperation. The transi
tion from a "man of brains" to
a "man of money" gives the
opportunity for the leading vein of
comedy in the play. Mr. Rainforth has
apart which requires idee judgment and
specialquallttcations. He madu a hit In
the character last night, and In thu eyes
of a Columbus audleace clearly confirmed
his right to the high estimation in which
he is held in other places.
The play, taken altogether, was well
rendered, and deserves a good run. The
Big Bonanza will be repeated to-night. It
i a play which those who desire to keep
posted in the best of the late productions
cannot well afford to miss.
Madame Rcutz's female minstrel
troupo will iflvo an r ntfrtainirtpttr at tha
Athencutn, iu this city, on next Friday
evening, December 2tth. Speaking of
this troupe, the Burlington, (Iowa)
Hnekyt says :
"M'dc Rcnt.'s female minstrels in
Union hall. last evening, were greeted by
a crowded house and thu performance
deserved tho liberal pctrouagc it re
ceived." Popularoplnion, socially speakinr, isso
much against anyentertainnsent including
any approach to the genus "cau-cau"
that to sneak well ot a trcupe advertis
ing the Parisian feature as i specialty re
quires more nerve than theaverage news

the venture lu the present Instance, how
ever, assured that we are enly according
justice to the excellent ccmbluution ot

The slngliiff of Jflss Kltte Sheppard,
Mr. Frank Bell, Miss Iinillo Forest, Mr,
Harry Armstrong and Miss Marion Rob

order) was all good and well received,
particularly that of Miss Hattle Forest
and Miss Marlou Roblnscn, The La
luonts, Jeunloand Albert, it their trapeze
and posturing acts, were vociferously
aud deservedly applauded. Frank Bell's
senatorial address simply brought down

evolutions, cyinccd much dexterity and
skill. Nor must wc forget to mention
Prof. Thomas Posho's vlolli solo, which

greatly to the enjoyment, keeping the

Cairo, Iu.., Monday Evesixo,
December 20, 1876.
Since our last Issue we have been al
lowed to taste of n little real winter,
which had the effect to make thu sales of
dressed meats, poultry and eame rather
active. On Friday the weather here
was the coldest ot the season, the ther
mometer showing twenty degrees below
freezing. At present, however, It is
much warmer.
Business In general is dull. Hay Is
ratiier quici, i.. v..f ii,f. Mj ror
mixed, ana very uttie is finding its way
to this place. Choice hay, however, Is
scarce, aud would sell very rapidly.
Corn is also quite, with but little coming
Into the market; there Is but little de
mand, except at the mills, where good
white corn Is wanted for mllllngpurposes.
The sales lu oats for the past few days
have been heavier than for some time
