Cairo, Juno 8, 1S7G.
Cairo i a lovely town to get sick in,
and I'll w arrant that the Intelligent white
visitor will get so sick of the place in
twenty-four hours, that he'll wonder
why heaven ha sought to w reak such
fcarlid retribution upon him.
Just now Cairo offers the additional at
traction of being without gas aud police
men. As a consequence tlic peaceful In
habitants are permitted to playfully
wander about on dark nights, w ith their
souls filled With consoling reflection that
they ara Just as liable to bring up In the
river as at home.
Cairo policemen have not yet won a
place in national history, and I am there
fore unable to say much about the loss
Cairo has been called upon to endure.
Still, at a rough guess, I would say that
what the average Caitolte lose iu being
without the privilege of
BKIXQ ItEATK.X OVEn THE HEAD
by a policeman's club, he gain in being
permitted to get blind drunk seven time
per week, and to lie In the gutter all day
and all night, if so minded.
Thus It will be seen that there are sil
ver lining to all the clouds, or words to
The gentle Cairoite i therefore not so
w retched as the average observer might
tuagiiie. Which proves that things arc
not always as bad as they look.
it is understood that the City of Cairo
I not only financially busted but utterly
ruu dry in the credit line. She owe the
gas company a pretty heavy bill, hasn't
got the cash to pay the peelers and has a
pretty hard time of It generally.
The popular opinion is that Cairo Is
situated at the confluence of the Ohio aud
Mississippi rivers, and strange to say,
popular opinion Is correct.
There is, however, one trilling circum
stance that always puzzcls me when I
come to Cairo. I see the Ohio flowing'
past tlic city, ami in a straight line away
beyond it, I see the Mississippi flowing
nto the Ohio at Cairo
AT KK.HT A NUM..
and yet the river below Cairo is called
he Mississippi. .
It always apicared to me to be rough
on the Ohio to cut it short in that style
but 1 suppose i'.'s one of those queer
things no ''lellah'' can understand.
I can't say that i am much concerned
about it though. I don't feci a sulticient
nterest in the question to care whether
the Ohio flow ui or down, or flows at
;ill. W hen the Cairo people come to find
this out, they'll feel badly, 1 know, but
I can't help telling the truth, even if I
lose every fricud I ever had.
it Is a weakness against which
I liave never Is-cn able to struggle with

stone depot, about twelve o'clock Wed
The Grand Tower had Just pitched out
from tho Illinois Central wharfboaf,
where she had been discharging cotton,
and was heading for the wharfboat of
the Cairo and Viticcnne railroad.
Tho Shipper's Own was proceeding
down the river in the channel usually
taken, by boats preparatory to
landing at Halliday & Phillip's
wharfboats, and was about op
posite the coal dump when her
pilot, Harvey Thompson, discovered the
Grand Tower's signal. She had a bright
torch also burning, which led him to be
lieve that she wa lying at the bank, lie
did not see his mistake until the Grand
Tower was close upon him, when ho at
onccj shipjK'd hi boat and began backing
In hopes that the Grand Tower's pilots
would give him some signs by which he
could work with safety. By this time
the Grand Tower was within one hun
dred yards of the shipper Own, and it Is
believed by Mr. Thompson to have been
under full headway, and her pilot, lie
coming alarmed at the danger before
him, made an attempt to run the Grand
Tower out Into the river by giving her a
sudden turn In that direction, but the
boat were so close together that a .col
lision was unavoidable.
The Grand Tower gave three or four
shrill blasts from her whistles, and in a
few seconds after was upon the Shipper'
Own, striking her just forward of Ir r
ash pan, on tho starboard side, runnii.g
her nose half way through the Shippers
Own, knocking down her chimneys and
otherwise crippling her so badly that she
Ix-gan to go down, and in less than live
minutes the ill-fated loat was buried in
thirty feet ot water.
The shock wa so great that the Ship-
crs' Own was turned clear around. The
Grand Tower at once turned her atten
tion to the pcopht on the sinking craft,
there being several deck and as many
cabin passengers aboard. She succeeded
in reseueing all but one man named
Kirkland, who boarded tlio boat at Do
ver, Tennessee, and who, upon being
awoke amid the confusion, became so be
wildered that he rushed to the guards of
Hie vessel and jumped overboard ami has
since been missing.
There was a drizzling rain falling and
the night was very dark at the time of
The Shipper's Own floated down twen
ty or thirty yards before settling. She
lies just above the stone depot, with only
a small portion of the icar end of the
cabin, the Texas and the jack-stall out of
She w as built at Brownsville, Pu., in
the spring of 1S73, at a cost of twenty-
seven thousand dollars, nnd was the
property of a stock company, composed
of gentlemen of Nashville. Tennessee,
Capt. Byman. of that city, being the
the principal owner. She was valued at
the time she went down at fifteen thou
sand dollars, and will 1 a total loss, as
there was no insurance on her.
Her cargo consisted of 3S hogsheads of
tobacco, worth $123 per hogshead ; o0
ton of iron, valued at $25 per ton, and a
small amount of miscellaneous freight
The entire cargo waa worth between
seven and eight thousand dollars.
Capt. Crouch, the owner of the steamer
Bermuda, was in command of the Ship
pers Own during her unlucky trip. He
was negotiating a trade with her owners,
and wa to give for her the Bermuda
aud $7,009 cash, aud wa bringing her to
this poit ou a trial trip, w hen she sunk.
Captain Crouch is a gentleman well
aud favorably known to all river men in
this vicinity, and his ill luck will cause
regret to all. i
The safe of the boat was recovered
yesterday morning, but tlic most valuable
of her books were lost. Ptotest wa
entered before L'uit'.'d State Com
missioner Candce, yesterday afternoon.
The Grand Tower wa not injured in
the least, and after discharging her cot
ton at the Vincennes wharf boat, proceed
ed on her war to St. Louis.
