The majority of the boys in Cairo are
enthusiastic in the cause of Tilden and
Hendricks, and several large clubs have
been organized among them. The moet
patriotic and succcsful of these, is that
composed of the lads in the neighbor
hood of the Bi llk hn oflice. The mem
bers of this club tuin out in procession,
with torches, flags and drums every
night, and make the air ring with their
loud hurrahs aud yells for the reform
candidates. The leading spirits ot this
club are Jimmy Boone, Timothy Con
nors aud Amandus Jaeckel. On Thurs
day night they met at their pole, ou the
vacant lot near the corner of Eleventh
street aud Washington avenue, for the
purpose of discussing the political situa
tion, when young Boone, Jaeckel and
Connors made rousing speeches.
Copelaud, tho man who sold Mr. N. B.
Thlstlewood of this city, a horso some
three weeks ago, and who is now in jail
at Jonesboro, after disposing of his horse
to Mr. Thlstlewoood, went straight to
Anna, where, until a lew days ago, he
has been stopping at the L'ry house. On
Monday he left Anna, tor his home lu
Maytield, Ky., and when some three or
lour miles south of Anna, became tired
and stole a horse from a German by the
name of Mace. The settlement turned
out to looked for the thief, but do word
was beard ol him, and the hunt was given
up. The tluef on that morning about 0
o'clock, was near Unity, trying to bor
row a saddle, which eav rise to th sus
plciou that all was not right, and one
Mr. Craig, arrested him on supicion,
and kept him under arrest until Saturday
afternoon last. He heard that such a
horse had been stolen from Mace, and on
Sunday morning he started with t lie
prisoner and horse for Mr. Mace's housp.
The horse was Identified as Ihe one stolen

Lottie Foster is a colored ! 'mc, and
for a certain colored gentleman living
here has a very kindly feeling, much to
the dHiko of Lizzie Roper, w ho Is nlso a
very great admirer ol the same son of
Ham. On two or three occasions Lottie
and Lizzie have met in combat. When
ever the gay young ebony ot their affec
tions chances to dh play too much favor
for Lottie, the green-eyed monster
seizes Lizzie, and inspires her with a
great desire to snatch Lottie ball headed,
and tic rfi-.i't with Lottie. On Thurs
day niirlit, through some means consid
ered unfair and very unladylike by Lot
tic, Lizzie managed to monopolize the
time ol the young man, which, very nat
urally, occasioned a great storm in the
bosom of Lottie, and she determined to
have sweet vengeance on her rival. She
accorditiglv sought her. for this purpose,
and tried hard by harsh words and un
kind slurs to get a fight out of Lizzie,
but she failed. Lizzie onlv said she
would not deign to light Lottie, she was
"too low down for her to bother with,"
but she would do as all good, law abid
ing persons do, she would have her ar
rested, which she did, and Lottie was
lined ten dollars and co-ts by Judge
Bros, and fnrni.-hed a home in the
lockup, where she will sojourn for the
next ten days, because she couldn't pay.
Cairo n, m. I.mtia.
A correspondent of the St. Louis Re
publican, writing under date of August
30, says :
During her mourntul prostration Phil
adelphia, Boston and Baltimore compe
ted strongly and with considerable suc
cess tor the trade which New Vork city
had nearly monopolized. Realizing that
cheap transportation letween the sea-
hoard and interior points from whence
New Vork must derive all of her articles
ol export, and to which she must ship all
tier imports and manufactures is the one
great essential iu the desired recovery
and augmentation of her trade, the busi
ness men or .New lork, through their
transportation bureau, have sedulously
addressed themselves to the task of cut
ting freights by rail to a figure so low
that no other city can hope to compete.
And they have succeeded. They have
induced the managers of the Hudson
river and New York Central railway
company to put into ell'ect a schedule of
local and through rates unprecedentedly
low with a view of attracting buvers of
all manner of goods to New Vork city.
In this new table of rates St. Louis as
usual is vilely discriminated against, and
our merchauts ouht to inquire at once
into the matter and ascertain where the
'llie rate to Chicago on first, second
aud third-class irood is tweuiv-nve cent
per 100 pounds; on fourth-class goods it
is 10c per 1(A) pounds. Chicago is WM
miles west of New York city. The rate
to St. Louis is fixed at 33 cents ou first,
second and third-class freights, and
JO cents on fourth-class, and St. Louis is
1,070 miles west of New York city. The
rate to Cairo is fixed at 32 cents ou first,
second and third-class freights, and at 21
cents on fourth-class. Cairo is 1,252
miles distant from ,Ncwl ork city.
Can St. Louis business men discern all
of the danger there is to their trade in
this new scheduler
First. Inasmuch as the rate to Chicago
is 23 cent and 10 cents per 100 pounds,
the St. Louis rate -hould have been 3
cents per 100 pounds higher, or 23 cents
on first, second ai. J third-class freights,
and 19 cents on fourth-class. As it Is,
the discrimination amounts to S cents
100 pounds on the first three classes and
7 cents on the fourth class and "special"'
This mav seem to be a tritle, but be it
romembered that triiles ot this kind are
extremely potent In influencing trade.
These tritles enable Chicago merchants
to offer colter, sugar, hardware, cutlery,
dry goods, leather goods, etc., to the
merchants of the west and southwest a
shade cheaper than St. Louis can offer
them, and by obtaining a rate of freight
from Chicago to western and southwest
ern points also at a less rate per ton per
mile than roads leading west and south
west of St. Louis are w illing to make, a
still further advantage is given to the
But if this discrimination in favor of
Chicago is a grievance In what light may
the discrimination in favor of Cairo lie
Cairo is 211 miles further from New
York city titan St. Louis Is ; as follows :
New Vork to Chicago 120 miles, Chicago
to Cairo via the Illinois Central railway.
3G2 miles. This distance added to !I20
makes the total distance from New York
to Cairo 1,22 miles, or 211 miles further
than St. Louis is. Yet freights are car
ried from New York to Cairo lor 32 cents
on first, second and third-class, and 21
cents on fourth-class. According to tho
proper rate jx-r tuiJo rrvijrlits to Cairo
should have been 40 cents in the llrst
three classes, and 20 cents on fourth
class and special ; but no, St. Louis busi-
lies is or so little conseouenee to the
railway companies that they never ap
pear to care lor her interest.
By securiiiL' the above rates the mer
chants of Cairo may now send their
drummers all through tho Southeast aud
South and Southwest, and cut into the
trade otSt. Louis in a way that St. Louis
will presently feel most keenly.
The Chicago and Alton Railway com
pany ought to carry freights from Chi
cago to Louis quite as cheap as the Illi
nois Central Railway company does to
I 'alro from "hicago, the haul being a
much shorterone. Therefore, cither this
arrangement should be made with the
Alton road or the Illinois Central com
pany ought to bo prevailed upon to in
crease the rate to Cairo, as a matter of
justice to St. Louis.
Unless our merchants actively hasten
themselves to have the evils remedied
which are complained of above the fall
trade ot St. Louis, which is now opening
so auspieously, will be suddenly cheeked
and Chicago drummers will successfully
iuvado our territory in the west and
southwest, and Cairo travellers will com
pete with us In the south aud southeast.
The writer ot tho above is certainly not
well posted regarding Cairo's railroad
advantages, and the distance from Cairo
to New York over tho shortest route,
