there is a certain means of rendering

this triple effect tbe exodus ol the toccal

Is generally an eventful episode in life;
whether it be as pilgrim to worship the
prophet's shriuo at Mecca, or as a part of
a oarayan ot merchants. Tho dangers of
the destructive simoon, attacks ot preda
tory robbers and tho agony of dying
from thirst are dissipated on reaching
one of those gardens ot the desert, nn
oasis. Partaking of that which recuper
ates, they meet their future difficulties
witli recruited strength and renewed en
ergies. So with modern life, dangers
from disease threaten all humanity, but
it we make use of a remedy which allevi
ates aceute attacks of sickness, thus pre
venting their becoming chronic, we shall

matter by saying the exercises were
all good in the superlative degree
Aud tho little ;folks enjoyed the

their jollty and good humor, added a

Just one word:
I havo been In the newspaper buiiuess
in Cairo nigh on to thirteen yesrs, and In
that time havo had an experience that
might have been pleasauter and might
have been far moro disagreeable than it
has been. I have been up and down and
around and across, and have managed to
be alwayi hopeful, although sometimes
sorely pressed by the Inexorable cruelty ot
confounded hard times. Be it
known to you. that I take thi
fact as a mark ot great merit In
the undersigned; lor hard times, even
when they are not contounded, always
press the hardest upon the utterly miser
able business ot publishing a little dally
poper In a little city busy at the lazy
work of not valuing either In population
or prosperity. And that is the kind of a
business tho publication ot tho Bulletin
has been the pat tour or live
years.
Cairo, alter the close of the war, was
hurt by the unsettled condition of the
Southern states, and the panic of '73 gave
her, with the other cities of tho republic,
a tearful blow that has greatly Injured
her prospects. Tho Bulletin suffered
with its city, and has been going on
lrom year to year lately without as firm
a beliel as It had In 1808 that Cairo
would, in a decade or two, bo the city of
the MUsisdppl valley a city bigger than
Xew York, more energetic than
Chicago and richer than St
Louis, with a Bulletin newspaper
worth anywhere from a million to a bil
lion of dollars. But this vision has not
laded entirely. True it is at present in
distinct, but who knows how;soon it
may come out again In brighter
colors than It wore when Mose llarrell
with his flattering pen, used to point tbo
world to it through these columns, and
grow eloquent over our natural advanta
ges. Has not Hayes, tho Great Counted'
In, pacified the South ? Is not the South'
em Tactile almost a fixed fact? Is it not
probable that Lads will set .Cairo upon a
hill, lilt the Mississippi valley
above high water, and give,
eveu In the dryest ot times, twenty feet
of water to the Gulf? Who knows!
But life is short, and being a "servant of
the people" aud unable to do my public
duties faithfully, and publish the little
Bulletin with the attention it should
have to be either readable or financially
succcsslul, 1 propose to get off the tripod
miserable Btool ! rest, pray for the

The market here sinco our last report
has undergone no change worthy of
special mention. Business generally is
dull, and merchants are having a restin g
spell. Our only consolation is in the fact
that while business Is dull here In Cairo,
it Is equally dull in all other cities and
towns throughout tho country. Cairo
is doing her full share of business com
pared with that of other cities, and our
merchants are not disposed to grumble.
It is not anticipated, however, that busi
ness will improve much until alter wheat
harvest, and tho new wheat begins to
move.
The weather is warm, aud the streets
of the city aro becoming very dusty
Wc have had no rain for more than a
week. Tho rivers are falling rapidly. '
Fruit and vegetables of all kinds aro
becoming plenty In this market and as a
rule prlec3 arc lower.
River rates to Xcw Orleans are .10 cents
per dry bbl., and 13 cents per cwt.
