made welcome and feel at home. Ar
rangements can be made with all the dif
ferent railroads leading into the city to
carry passengers at greatly reduced rates,
and thus people living a hundred
miles either direction around about Cairo
can be induced to attend. Speakers ot
national reputation should be secured for
the occasion. Let those w ho take the

complete for the occasion.

The Cairo public schools will open
next Monday, October 2d. The teachers
have been assigned to their several de
partmcnts, and we have every assurance
that the schools will be kept np to their
usual grade of excellence. Mr. F. Kors
raeyer, secretary of the board of direc
tors, was. out yesterday looking at the
school houses and superintending the re
pairs being made on them preparatory to
the opening. If there Is p.nything the
people of Cairo have reason to be proud
ot it Is our public schools, and they owe It
to themselves and their children to lend
assistance and encouragement to the su
perintendent and his corps of teachers in
their efforts to maintain their good repu
tation. reten tt Bark.
Our best friend and he is a stalwart
son of Erin too says he can hardly keep
his hands off the man who picked up his
umbrella and cavorted dowu the street
with it, when the devouring flames were
about to eat up friend Kills' hotel. Ever
since that period he has had a very evil
mind, and will have the umbrella or core
from the robber's nose. Last night be
said "You must publish that fellow.
Call him a Republican, or any harsh
name you d 1 please but just put a few
lines at the bottom, saying that the um
brella must be in my possession before
three moons, or there'll bo war." We
always found our Irish friend a model
man for a select tea party, but w hen he
talks about his umbrella he cenerally
gets riled aod at. Jack says, and Jack
knows all about it off his nut.

Our city council having liven tor
mented by day ami by iiljjht by the
thought of an overflow', it too has been
utterly at a loss to decide a plan that
would put nni ml to our trouble. It
has IMcned with an attentive ear to the
many suggestion oflVred, but upon
weighing ca h nf them in their mind, at
the rod hate louud all to be Impossible
lor the want of the necessary luii'N.
The lutet, and what has seemed a w-rr
fair plan, Athlch has In ch taken under
consideration by the board of Alderman,
is that of cutting a channel through tlie
strip of land opposite thi city In Missouri.
It is well known to all our people, who
have any acqii'iintauec w ith the way the
land lies in Missouri opposite Cairo, that
the Miss'ssippl just back of the city makes
a gradual bend for nearly ten miles.
Across thU neck of laud which the river
bounds the distance is not near so great,
and it has been proposal to cut a channel
across it, which, for all tiuio will rid us
ol the trouble that is now upon us.
Across this strip ot land the current of
the high water seasons hai cut a slough,
the head of w hich is about fifteen miles
from this city, and the foot Just above
Bird's point. It Is about two hundred
feet , wide, and at the mouth ten feet
deep, and It has been proposed that this
slough be converted into a sort of canal,
and that the course of the Mississippi be
turned into It, which would divert the
current from the levee, and thus assure
tor Cairo ptacc, happiness and prosper
ity. In order to gain sonic knowledge as to
the feasibility ot this suggestion, the
board ol aldermen proposed to
to pay the slough a visit yesterday. Ac
cordingly, at nine o'clock, the hour set
for their departure from the city, there
was at the wharf his honor, Mayor Win
ter, aud Aldermen Halliday, Yocum,
Wilcox, Parker, Uittenhouse, Wright and
Lancaster, and a number of prominent
citizens and business men, luclndinsr Ex
Mayor John Wood, R. W. Miller. It. II.
Cunningham, Peter Cuhl, A. Mackic. F.
M. Stockfleth and others.
The party boarded the Iron steam
yacht Ariadne, and proceeded to Bird's
Point, with the intention of 'footing it"
along the slough, that tbey might have a
good opportunity of know ing whether or
not the plan of turning it into the cut-off
would be a gocd one. But at Bird's
roint, when informed that they had a
tramp of six miles before them, tho al
dermen began to weaken, and alter talk
ing the matter over concluded to pro
ceed on up the Mississippi to the mouth
of the slough, and postpone their tour of
observation until Friday or Saturday.
Upon arriving at their destination, the
mouth of the slough was thoroughly in
spected by all the board. It is. as we
have said before, about two hundred feet
wide and between ten and twelve feet
deep, and Is literally packed with drift
wood. Huge trees and logs arc so jam
med aud packed together, that it is im
possible for the current of the river, no
matter how swilt it might be, to sweep
them away, aud in the opinion of some
of our wisest citizens, this is the only
obstacle that prevents the river from tak
ing the slough tor its course of its own
accord, while others ot the party w ere
not so favorably impressed. This drift
has been accumulating for years, and
In many places is piled up many feet
above the banks. While.at the mouth of
the slough, a gentlemen whose name we
did not learn, who lives In that yicinlty,
was intcrviewed,by Alderman Wright and
several others of the party. He says that
Buffalo Island, which lies directly oppo
site the mouth of the slough is fast being
cut away by the current of the river, and
believes that it will not be a great
while before the whole of the island
is gone, when he gives it as his opinion
the river will take iu course through
the slough. However this may be, it
will be a long time before the Island is
gone, and something will have to be
done before hand in order to trive us re
lief.' Tho party after remaining at the
slough about an hour returned to the
city, urriving nere aoout tour o'clock.
It our Radical lriends could lay their
eyes on a list of German citlzeus who
have declared against corruption, and de
sire reform, they would certainly (using
a Sbakspeareau simile) shed tears as fast
as an Arabian tree its medicinal gum. To
look at that Democratic and Independent
list would be considered a good cause for
a cast-iron Republican (similar to the one
who wanted to bet $5 'with Herman
Levy) to shed tears, and a postmaster to
commit suicide. It is a list as long as
the moral law, aud contains the uamcs of
some of the most prominent Germans iu
Southern Illinois; aud when they, in
conjunction with their American lriends,
who are also signing a similar list, and
tho Sweepers, turn out, you may bet
your bottom dollar a procession one mile
long will be formed.
This German upheaval remind us of
the Seymour und Blair days, when
Charley Schocnemeycr w as presiding of
ficer over a club aud we expect to see
Charley right in the middle of this move
meut, with the biggest torch in the. line
. There is no foolUbuess about this af
fair. It is as souud as a red apple pluck-
td from a Ktntuuky ccfaard. aud tho
bLziug light from the reform torches
will reach tho northern coulines of Illi
nois, and radiate , to tor zones,
That's what's tho matter.

Tho Cairo correspondent of Uie St.
Louis (J(ob'J)tmm:rtit Is capable ol great
things. He can stretch his imagination
to suit any and every occasion. The
following I a fair aample of his dispatch
to the 0.-D.:
iecil to the sr. tniiisilotie Iteiiiorral.
Cairo. III... Sent. 2:1. At a crand
Democratic hurrah" held in this eitv
last evening, the torch light proceion
was beaded hv a solltarv colored man
( hired for the occasion), flanked on either
iiaiih ny a stalwart guard with a draw n
sword to prevent tho "unterriiled" from
mobbing the "damned nigger."' Follow
ing them were about tlftv mm and bovs
carrying torches, while the rear was
hronjrht np hv mxteen veritable kit klu.v.
with thrfcktill. erne hones and other In
signia ol the order conspicuously dis
played. Many lending Democrats de
plore this premature dinpiAv of the clo
ven foot, they were unable to control
their followers, w ho refused to follow
the "nigger" unless allowed to do so in
uniform. 1 was unable to learn the
name ot the "Klan," but presume it typ
ical of "reform."
That the above Is false in every pat li-.i
ular is welt-know to every oim who wlt
neswod the pnrade or the Tilden and llvu
dricks Sweeper on the occasion of their
last turn out; but that outsiders, who
are not iieptaiuted w ith Vic facts may not
be led to believe this utory ns told by the
correspondent of the .-., we have this
to say: There was no "grand Demo
cratic hurrah,-' on that occasion. The
Sweepers club turned out tor parade-
there was no Democratic meeting, and no
particular speech-making. There wa
not only one, but half a
dozen colored men in the
procession, and it is true they were
placed near the head of the column, and
that too lor the purpose of protecting
them against the assault and insults of
Radical rowdies and bummers. In the
procession there were upwards of one
hundred torches, and less than a dozen
of them were carried by persons not
voters. As for Uie Ku-Klux referred to,
the facts arc these : A number of boys
probably half a dozen all told,
procured a few ol the masks
belonging to the "Knights of
the Mystic Krcw,M aud donning them.
joined in the procession. This is all
there Is in the story; and il there arc
any "leading Democrats who deplore
this premature display of tho cloven
hoof' we have failed to find them ; but
that there are a good many Republicans
who admit that the O.-D.'s correspon
