that the committee be Instructed to call

purpose of nominating candidates for the
various city offices to be voted for at
the coming charter election.
Mr. M. B. Ilarrell was not iu favor of
nominating a Democratic ticket. The
Democratic majority in the city he said
was so small that with the least disaffec
tion iu the ranks of the party,del'eat was
inevitable. And besides it was not cer
tain that all the Democratic candidates
would submit their claims to the conven
tion. He bclicred it was inexpedient to
nominate a straight ticket, and offered
an amendment to Capt Williams motiou,
by calling theconveutiou to consider the
feasibility of uomliiatiug a straight ticket.

The Cairo Public School.
A correspondent ot the Cincinnati
Ciminirtn'fli, writing from Cairo under
date of April 2d., says of the examina
tion ot our public schools:
"The examination or tho Cairo public
schools closed last Friday, having con
tinued tluring the entire week, and the
scholars and teachers are now enjoying
a week's vacation. The condition of the
schools is very much better than ever
before since they were llrst organized.
They are conducted by Prof. Alvord,
who Is assisted by thirteen w hite and
five colored teachers. The colored
schools are in a building by themselves,
and the white schools occupy two brick
buildings of Ave rooms each, and one
liame buildingspf one room.
The schools have been In existence to
long now that there are no longer any
very large scholars In attendance, which
makes the management, perhaps, easier.
But certain it is that perfect order and
strict discipline exist in all departments
aud those Institutions, which onlv a few
years ago were a laughing stock and a
reproach, are now a source of just pride
ot our citizens.
The late examlaation was very satis
factory, and showed that close and hard
work had been performed by all the
scholars. Many of the teachers stand at
the head of their profession, and their
works show It. in -addition to the
branches usually taught In common
schools, telegraphy aud Btnu Pitttnan's
phouography are taught to classes outside
school hours, and, as a recreation, at
times between lessons. Both these
branches are picked up rapidly by the
children, and some of them develop
great power in their mastery. The
other day a gentleman was called to ad
dress the school, and at the close of his
speech, was surprised to find that his
words had been written down by several
of the children, in short-hand, who re
produced them correctly at his request.
There are one thousand scholars in at
tendance, and the average attendance
and standing ot the pupils are
excellent. I send this much
couceruing our schools, which are equal
now to any in the Slate, because I know
there are people living at a distance who
will be glad to know that Cairo has
something whereot she may Well be
proud, although ttiey mav receive these
statements with many doubts and mis
givings as to their actual truth. 1 am
told It is the belief of many that no good
thing can come out of Cairo. Such peo
ple should visit and get acquainted w ith

An election for two members of the
board of school directors, to till the
vacancies occurring by the expiration ot
the terms of Messrs. Fisher and Thistle
wood, will be held at the Eleventh street
gdiool house on Saturday next. Among
all the gentlemen mentioned In connec
tion with the school board, perhaps the
present incumbents would prove
more acceptable to a large portion ot the
people ot the city than any others.
Both gentlemen take a deep interest iu
educational matters, and are perhaps as
well versed in the ad'airs ot our public
schools as any other two men in the
city. We believe it would be to the in
terests of the schools to re-elect them.
