Hot a "Rlngater "
It cannot be said of Dr. W. R. Baiith
that he is in any of the "rings" about
which we have heard so much of late.
We have never heard him charged
witn being a "ringster."
The rumor seems well founded that a
number of prominent citizens of Balti
more hare resolved to erect a monument
to the memory of the late Dr. J. W.
Bull, discoverer of that wondertul rem-
edy, Dr. Bull's Cough Svrup.
The Baa; Law,
Why didn't "Proclamation Jack" veto
the "hog ordinance," is a question which
some of his lormer supporters would
like to have him explain. He bad a
chance to do so, but failed to take ad
vantage of it. This fhog law business is
returning to plague Mr. Winter.
Mayor Winter, in his posters, or hand
bills, calls himaelt the "Reform" candi
date. What is he goiug to "reform". He
has been mayor for two years. Does bis
own administration require reiormlng ?
If n. tome one else will have to reform
The Rev. Dillon-Lee preached his first
sermon as rector of the Church of the

that our Episcopal lriends are much
pleased with their new pastor, as i9 the
pastor with his new nock.
Let in slave a Change.
Everv citizen who has the interest of
Cairo at heart should walk up to the polls
today and cast his ballott for Dr. W. R.
Smith for mayor. Mr. Henry Winter
has served two years in the mayors office,
and what has he done? Nothing. Let us
have a change. Let us elect Dr. Smith
and try him lor two years.

Winter and the Hog Law .
Mayor Winter cannot deny that tie
hog law as it now stands was read three
times in the council, and on Its final pas
sage received his signature in approval.
He cannot dodge this question, lie is
responsible tor tbe hog law and must net
attempt to shirk the responsll r.ity.
We understand that eflorts are bein?
made to have Col. Bob lngerson

For the Cairo Bulletin
Cairo. April lath, 1877.
Mr. Editor : naving been a short
time engaged in navigating this bend of
the riyer and taking notes, I thought I
would give yon the benefit of ray obser
vations, and if you choose the public also.
The geographical location ol your city is
evidently portable, and a ufflclent num.
ber of high water wheels can change its
latitude and longitude, and possibly , .
ITS COMMBBCIat IMPORTAXCI
Therewith. After a diagnosis, of course
a remedy is in order, and I would pre
scribe as follows:
A stock company ot sufficient forco to
produce or raise a capital of $25,000 lor
immediate use, and the approval and
good will of the city of Cairo to add
another ;$25,000 to the cspltal stock,
making a total of $50,000 at which limit
the company may rest on their oars, un
til their success in the enterprise is dem
onstrated, after which they may com.
to water the stock
11 so Inclined. The tnodut operandi is
simply to purchase a powerful engine,
with suitable dredging or dirt-lifting ap
paratus, and another large engine capa
ble ol pumping a large stream of water,
and both to be placed or located outside
of the levee, somewhere near the south
ern point or terminus of the levee
with the Ohio river. While
these are being placed ready
for use, let a sufficient number of flumes
suitable to carry the dirt and water raised
by the engines beconstructsd and placed
at an incline to give the fanning water
sufficient carrying force to rapidly more
the dirt, sand or sediment, and directed
on to lots and ground requiring to be
filled up or raited. A suitable planking
of a portable character must flrtt be
placed around the lot or lots to be tilled,
to retain the dirt and sand until the wa
ter should drain away, which,
l.N THIS JUKI'S SOIL,
Would be almost immediately. The
enclosure could then be used again
lor another plot of ground, and
ao on successively until the city
foundation would be raised to any grade
desired. Ot course a certain stipulated I
, . . , ,,, .1,1
Drice for attaining a certain grade would i
r"-"lul " I
have to be established, on account of tba
city's Interest in the stock and the
ther consideration of the tax payers' in
terest in the assessments required. 1
am Inclined to believe that lots near the
levee could be raised ten feet at not
ONE HUNDRED DOLLiRi COST TO THE
and with a fair profit to the company
doing the work. Five men could prob
ably control the operations ot the
engines and an ocasional working force
to change the direction of the flume and
enclosures would keep the business
Having seen immense bodies of earth
washed away by hydraulic apparatus
in a short time with quite an ordinary
stream of water, in mining operations
In California, and tha too, in flumes
made of three common twelve inch pine
boards, makes me confident that this
mode would soon put ;Cairo above deep
water.and if the citizens chose even uu to
The quicksand nature of the soil out
side of the levee would probably, move
forward with the water In the soil to
constantly supply the dredging appara
tus, unless at an uneul low stage ot
water In the rivers, or in extended dry
season, so that 1 question if the engines
would ever require to be moved until
the work would be completed. The
city must be filled to a
GRADE ABOVE SITE WATER
Before it can start out oa a healthy
growth. The permanance ot the levee
maybe secured and strengthened by
working constantly for a river front at
the southwest Dortlon on a eradual in
cline with a broken rock facing,
the same a on the Ohio front.
A lew obstructions placed in the
river at the proper angle above in the
Mississippi, would throw the current
with sufficient force, to cut a channel
in high water, to run close into the south
point of the levee. Not being a property
owner in your city so far as real estate is
concerned, I perhaps do not select the
best time to present this subject to the
tax-payers, but if carried out it would
repay them hereaftir.

We don't believe there is a citizen In
Cairo that does not recognize In Dr.
.Smith a man in every way qualified to
fill the office of mayor. De is known to
be a man of unimpeachable character,
ot ability and good Judgment, and great
firmness in whatever he undertakes
In the present crises he
is the man tor the place and the timet,
and we believe a great majority ol the
thinking men ot Cairo think at we do on
this subject, and will cast their ballots
tor him in the contest to take place to
day. Dr. Smith Is by no means a poll
tician. During his twenty years' resi
dence in Cairo he has never before
beena candidate for office, and in
the present instance was only induced to
sabmit his -name to the public at the
earnest solicitation of many ot the most
prominent citizens and business men of
the city. He is not an office-seeker, as
every one knows, but believes it to be
the duty of every good citizen to servo
his fellow men when prop
erly called upon to do so.
if elected mayor, and elect
ed he will be, he will endeavor to dis
charge the duties of the office In a faith
ful and conscientious manner.and.for the
best Interests of the city. All men who
have the interest of Cairo at heart should
cast; their vote tor Dr. Smith, and by to
doing they Swill have 'discharged their
duty tothemselvesjand to the public.

Dan Rice' Circa.
Dan Rice's cir:us and menagerie gave
two entertainments here yeiterday one
in the afternoon and another at night.
The periormances on both occasions
were witnessed by fair audiences, and if
the expressions of opinion by many of
those present, then tha show is a good
one. The "educated horses" are truly
worth seeing. By the simple word ol
mouth they are made to perform feats of
a most wondertul character. The ani
mals, though few in number, are of rare
species and seldom to be seen In a travel
ing thow. "Old Dan Rice," a full of life
and fire at ever, is in the riog,and with hit
tunnv layings, keep hi auditor,
in a constant uproar of laughter,
Tha thow all told, though not
o large nor making so much
noise as some we have seen, Is a good one
and far above the average of traveliug

here to-day and to-night, and will give
their usual performances.

There Is a slight improvement in the
market here lor Flour, Hay, Oats, Corn
and Meal ; but on all other articles tbe
market remains In pretty much the same
condition as last reported. Tbe weather
wears a summer like aspect, and to-day
it Is very warm. The Ohio and Missis-
Ippl rivers are rising slowly, and are
now pretty high, though not sufficiently
so to cause the leaat aprehensiou of dan
ger. Uur levees never were In better
condition, aud the feeling ot security
never before so firmly rooted In our
people. Freight rates by river to New
Orleans are 30c per dry bbl., and 16c per
Our friends should bear In mind
that the price here given are only lor
sales from nrst nanus in round lots, in
filling orders and for broken lots It Is
necessary to charge an advance over
these figures. gt
In tbe Flour market we
have to quote
a further advance ot 23
cauts on all
grades, with a strong and firm feeling at
the advanced prices; and dealers are dU
posed to hold oft believing that prices
will sro still higher. The only explana
tion tor this tudden advance is the al
most certainty oi a European war,lnwhich
event it is contended America will be
relied upon for breadstuff's. At all
events the war piospects are such as to
materially affect the markets lnjthiscoun
try. audit Is even believed that ol the
9,000,000 bushels of wheat In sight,
large portion of it is held on foreign ac
count. Tbestockof flour on the market
here it fair, though not large. The de
mand for medium and choice grade I
fair, while low. grades are dull.
