We understand there is a move on

Dksk Sir : Herew ith inclosed llnd a
full report lor publication of my treas
urership of the asylum. Ah well known
to you, It was, at the proper time, with
held from motive of delicacy ou my
part, and a desire not to call forth unfa
vorable comments upon my pred-cessors
When elected treasurer I could get no
otllclal Information of the financial stand
ing of the asylum ; not one cent was re
turned as on hand ; but some large or
der on the treasurer were outstanding,
unpaid for several years.
I should have maintained silence had
not the financial management ot the or
phan asylum been called iu question aud
an account of money received and dis
bursed asked for in a" Letter ol luquiry,"
published In the Bi i.i.Kns, December!),
Kii, signed by " N. X' As a part
of the money received by the ladies passed
through tny hands as treasurer, it be
comes necessary to publish my report to
show what desposltiou was made of It.
Hence I send you the report which
was made in detail to the proper com
mittee and its correctness vouched tor.
It will be best to publish this letter in
vindication of yourell and O. D. Wil
liamson, as will as tnyself, for withhold
ing the report at the proper time from
publication. Respectfully yours,

The Democratic central county com
mittee have called a mass meeting of cit
izens that mean, we suppose. Bepubli
caus and Demo'rats, at 1 1 ink. te &. Thistle-
wood's grain house to-morrow evening
at 7 o clock, to discus the present
situation and appoint delegates
to the Democratic pow-wow
to meet in Sprlnglleld on January 8th.
We are clad that eltlene are inviteu,
and we Iioim; every Republican Iu the
city, and every Democrat, will be on
hand. If Cairo can't IU up our present
political troubles, then no one can, and
we hope every man w ill have the honor
of taking a part. Turn out, boys, ail.
The muetiiig to-night is not a Republi
can meeting. It is called tor Democrats
and such Liberal Republican as believe
Mr. Tilden to have been fairly elected,
and who object to his lielng heated out
of the fruits of his victory by a gang of
unscrupulous politicians. They propose
to meet in a peaceable and lawful man
ner to give expression to their
sentiments, and do not intend to
be interrupted by men who entertain
opinions diiTei ing from them. The meet
ing to-niirht is not a Republican meeting;
and we hope the leaders of the Republi
can party iu Cairo will see to it that it Is
not interrupted. In case an attempt is
made to disturb the proceedings of the
meeting, fhero will be trouble.
