"Hon. John II. Obcrly announces in
the Cairo Bulletin that his connection
with the editorial and business depart
ments ol the Bulletin ceased June 1st ;
but that he will retnaiu in charge of the
job department. The Bulletin, under
J. 11. Obcrly, has attained first-class rank
as a well-conducted and very ably edited
uemocratic newspaper. The new
managers are Messrs. W. F. and L. C
Scluickers. If these gentlemen do as good
shucking as John has done, they wi 1
merit the same degree of patronage and
and consideration. We hope they will.

The Jonesboro (lazettt says : Quite
a sensation was created In Cairo and
thr jughout Southern Illinois by the an
nouncement that Judge F. Bross, county
judge ot Alexander county and police
magistrate of Cairo, had resigned those
positions, and had gone In company w ith
F.M. Stockfleth, in the wholesale liquor
business. This will now be one ot the
strongest houses In the West, and with
tho addition of the well known business
energy and ability ot the judge, Us affairs
will be conducted In a most satisfactory
manner to the many patrons ot this long
established and popular house. We
wish the new firm abundant success.

In ttie circuit court on Friday, Eas
ley and Allen, the two men who were up
for robbing Mrs. Merritt of forty-two
dollars, wero sentenced to two years
each In the penitentiary. Thu case of
Tern Ellis, horse stealing, was then
brought up. tho testimony taken and the
Jury sent out to deliberate. That body
did not return until yesterday evening,
when they were equally divided as to
the guilt or innocence of Ellls.theie being
six tor conviction and six for acquittal.
Win. Davis, charged with having prac
ticed a confidence game on n gentleman
from the rural districts, to the amount of
twenty dollars, jvas brought up yester
day morning, and the jury, after listen
ing to the evidence, concluded to give
him six years In the penitentiary. The
case of Amelia Parker, colored, under
Indictment lor cutting the well known
colored gentleman, "Tricky Sam," with
intent to murder, was called yesterday
afternoon, and a jury empanelled, but
little evidence had been taken up to the
hour of adjournment.
On Wednesday uiy;hf, u number of
men under Mr. Kice, one of the carpen
ters of the Illinois Central railroad com
pany, arrived in the city, and went to
work on Thursday morning, pulling
down the yellow warehouse, at thu foot
of Twentieth-Eighth street, on Ohio
levee. The company claims that it i
acting iu the matter under tho lute mi i
aneu decree ot Judge Baker ; but wli -
er ttie company will, as the decree
requires, remove thu elevator, switc
sidetrack, etc., remains to be seen. '
the opinion of many ot our pcopii
they will not, and that the con
would not pull down the wun h

If the goods were shipped by the Mi-m.
sippi Central, now owned by the Illi
nois Central, Day the company far more
than the rental does. Therefore the
company, knowing that goods cannot
be conveniently stored if the yellow
warehouse Is Ui stroyed ; believing that
goods will go through by their rail In-
-ead of being shipped by river, and that
,t would thus get control of the Southern
trade of Cairo ; knowing too ihut
this condition of affair would be a heavy
blow at the business of this city, com
menced to take the warehouse down.
Having destroyed the warehouse, which
Is ot benefit to the city, the company will
compromise with our council by giving

elevator, side tracks. Inclined plane, etc.

The following communication which
we take trom the Diocese will prove In
teresting reading to the church people
of Cairo ;
Dear Diocf.sk: Whileynur pages are
always lull of good things, it seems as il the
April number surpasses all ot its prede
cessors. The hearts of many layman have
been strengthened and encouraged by the
"words of wisdom and holiness," 1 1 the
address of our beloved Bishop to the cler
gy. We have had a good Lent and a
bright, and joyous Easter, although our
little (lock had no shepherd. JLay services
wero kept upas usual by our faithful
Senior Warden, and we hud a Friday
nlternoon service during Lent which
was well attended. For Jthe last two
weeks In Lent we were so fortunate as
to have a visit trom the Rev. M. K. Dillon
Lee, who had lately resigned the Rector
ship of Christ Church, Adrian, Michigan.
The dally service of Passover week and
our glorious Easter were ample recom-
)ense for anyth'ng we have lost in the
icginnlng ot the season. Mr. Dillon
Leo is a very fine reader, and a forcible
and earnest speaker, has already won
his way to the hearts of his people, and
succeeded in interesting many ot our
business men, who have ot late ceased
to care tor the church as the once did.
On Easter day, better than the beau
tiful flowers and lovely music and
crowded churches, was the fact that the
celebration ot the Holy Euchrist had
tho largest attendance wo have ever
known and several who have been absent
from that blessed feast for tho last year
or two, knelt again at the chancel rail.
We are to have regular Friday evening
services, and a special servico on all
Saint's days, with festivals for the
Sunday school frequently, and I hope to
sec the missionary interest of the parish
greatly invigorated, and the subscription
list of theldiocese increase. Your editorial
on "Easter Monday" was much to my
Iking, and you will he glad to know
that our Easter meeting was well at
tended, the ladles, as usual being large
ly in the majority nnd taking much Inter
