chickens were stolen, and he was locked
up. Yesterday he was taken before

the chickens could not swear positively
to his property, a charge of vagrancy was
preferred against the negro, and a lino ot

the purpose ot organizing a society,
which had tor its principal cud tho es
tablishment of a public library la Cairo.
We expected to encounter difficul
ties and criticisms, and of tlicso wo have
had our share, but we have pressed on,
havo surmounted all obstacles, and as
the second anniversary of this associa
tion draws nigh, and wo have succeeded
lu accomplishing Unit where unto wc
pledged ourselves, (which wo trust will
tend to elevate the morals oud literary
taste of the people of our city)
may wo not be congratulated that
in laboring for others, we, as members of
this society, havo been benefited by our
pleasant meetings together, nud In our
social Intercourse. I trust wo have been
drawn closer in our sympathies ; that
ties of frieudship havo been cemented
between us ; that our ta.ste tor literary
pursuits have been fostered, and our aspir
ations for higher aud broader aims been
In tho past two years havo wc not
proved to tho public, that wo men are
capable ot attending to business matters,
aud to-day, do not success uud confi
dence sit enthroned upon our banner f
As an association, ve have worked
quietly aud without ostentation,
have won the confidence of our fellow
citizens, and to-day wo stand higher in
their good opinion than we did one year
1 for one havo no fears lor the future if
we but prove as diligent and faithful as
iu the past.
