or us." lu this article, cither Intention
nlly or unintentionally, my statements
aro misrepresented, and word put Into
my mouth that were never uttered by
me. The Incts aro ns follows. A day or
two ago I met .Mr. Sehuckers lu thn office
ol Pace, Elliott it Co., and asked him when
thn Taylor Literary Society were going
toglvelhelrenlcrtalnmeiitV One of the
gentlemen present asked, "Dn
call you that an entertainment ?
We call It here negro minstrels."
I ndded, the reason I akeil was,
1 hadieeelvedii letter from Mr. Ilughey
in regard to his (laughter, Sarah, deliver
ing here some lime soon, two lectures,
nnd I did not care to have her tlx thu
lime on tho evening of their entertain
ment. "No," said some one present,
"for a negro minstrel show will beatnny
thlngelsc." I said they seemed to get a
good crowd from what I had understood,
but thai lectures were poorly attended
here, and that I had written Mr. Ilughey
we would do thu best we eould for Ids
daughter, but doubled about her secur
ing very much ol an audience.
Now, fhls In substance Is all of the con
versation. I said not one word about
telling Mr. Ilughey "that tho people of
Cairo were a very literary community,
etc., but that 1 would not advise the
young lady to venture upon a lecture, as
the noted Taylor Literary Club were
making exten-ive preparations lor a
grand ovation In the shape of a negro
minstrel show," etc.
I did not write to Mr. Ilughey any
thing of tho kind, nor did I intimate in
mat conversation that I had. The arti
cle may have been Intended only as a lit
tle matter or pleasantry, but'wheii li
comes to staling, through tho public
prints, what a man has said, beailng
somewhat, at least, on thu moral nnd
literary status of a community, so far as
I am concerned, I prefer to havu it done
correctly or not at all.

The young gentleman who Is the suap
perer up of unconsidered trilles for thu
Uum.khx, reported yesterday, that Itev.
Mr. Glllhnm, In a letter ot I lev. .Mr.
ilughcy.'had said : Thu pcoplu ol Cairo aru
a very literary community, ever ready to
welcome cultivated minds to their homes,
etc., but ut present wo would not advise
thu young lady to venture upon a lecture
here, as the Taylor Literary Club Is pre
paring for n negro minstrel show," etc.
Tho Itev. Mr. Glllhain Informs thu public
that our young man mUunderstood hlni,
Wc therefore modify our statement to
comply with thu request i.iadu by
Mr. Gillhnm's card. Hut really was this
an .Important matter!? sufficiently Im
port to call for an explanation? Prob
ably. Hut thu .Vim Lord hlcas us, Iho
Sun .' Is Indignant, and talks about thu
bad policy of placing our laulls bcl'oiu
tho people. Wo smile, good iiaturedly,
at these soft drippings of the.sW guull
Uy. Faults? Why, by all thu good
sensed pcoplu of tho world, it Is not a
fault to prefer ii, negro show to a prosy
lecture. When a good lecturer comes
along to Cairo hu or shu is welcomed by
large and appreciative audiences; but
very properly wo turn uway from thn
dull people who talk hi public to lou
uioni entertaining and Just ns hutriictlvu
negro mlutlrcl shows and circuses. This
Is, us wo understand It, evidence of our
good taste mid good m ii-c. Hut, bu It
