to he present hi St. Patrick's Church at
the funeral services for their deceased
member, Mr. Edward Morris, unless
they di vested themselves of their regalia.
The cae, I inn sorry to Kay, still
continues to be misrepresented and
a few p"rsoiis are endeavoring with
much talk to excite. In others feel

Now how could they be dUipiuiiutcd, or
why chagrined at the priest's conduct,
lor they knew in their present condition
'hey were forbidden as a society to as-lst
at tint public tiuictions ol the church, 1
hope tbe fact of Ihe trnms of their

did not embolden them to make such an

I'liely approved by the pope fur the
f nited Slates, that Catholic parents, who
refuse to five their children a Catholic

all Catholic parents, whether they be
long to societies or not. Therelore, the
law ot this diocese will not allow a Cath

approach ce.'taiu sacraments, at least
once a year, are not practical Catholics :
they are Catholics only In name. The
St. Patrick's society itself knows and be
lieves this and has a by-law requiring
Its members to receive theo
sacraments at least once a year.
Therefore it goes as far, in theory, to ex

What a Correspondent who Spent th
Fourth ;Thre baa to Say about the
Town, the People Etc.
IloDoi;' Pauk, Ills., July .""th, 1S77.
To the Editor of theCaiio ISn.uiK:
Having concluded to celebrate the
"glorious Fourth" away from the city,
I made this my objective point, and
boarded the Cairo and St. Louis ivirrow
gauge train on the morning of the
Fourth. After a pleasant ride of about
forty ml.iiites dittation, I disembarked at
Hodge's park, and wending my way to
the park proper, was soon one of a crowd
ot several hundred w ho had assembled
to partieipato in a proper celebration of
the day. Without entering Into a des
cription of the different amusements, etc
will say that we all bad a most glorious
time, and that the gentlemanly managers
(our worthy deputy sherill.John Hodge,
Messrs. Dennis and Pat Sullivn, Mra.
Coil and others whom I cannot name)
worked faithfully and succeeded in mak
ing it pleasant for nil who were there.
My object, however. Mr. Editor, in this
communication was not to describe the
celebration, but to give your readers a
description ol this pleasant little Tillage.
It had been some two years since I was
here, and I was surprised at the Improv
incut which had taken place in that time.
When I was here before there was not
above three houses and eight or ten
people. Now it is a pleasant little
village ot some two hundred Inhabitants
with a number ol new and cosy looking
resl leiiccs. There are also two large saw
mills, one under the management of
llooppaw & Atlierton, the other
owned and controlled by Landers, Coll
iv Co. which are running lull time and
giving employment to a large uuniher of
men. There Is also a ue a1 and improved
grist mill which is doing a good business.
Asldo from these there are three good
stores, u neat little depot, good hotel,
cte. (Speaking ot the hotel, Mr. Editor,
! can bear testimony to the tact that the
'Park" Jlotel under thu management of
Mr. William Ireland, U one o! the bes-t
pU'.es to nop ut lu tUa county, and I 'J.
vle everybody who lias occasion to visit
this part of the country lo "put up"
with tnlno host Ireland nt the "Park."
They will not regret it.) This dace is
also an important station on the Narrow
Gauge, as it is during high water the
tiotithern termiuu.. The company has
put in a turn tihle ami out or two
switches here and seem to n cognie the
importance of the place. The people
here are tocial and plea-ant and always
entertain their visitors very nicely. Want
of space, Mr. Editor prevents, mo from
speaking of the school here, Sunday
school, church etc., but I may do so at
another time. JI.
The 1 yatlo Krew Congratulated.
To the Mitor of ihe llli.n us ;
If not too late 1 would like through the
columns of your paper to convey to the
Knights of the Mystic Krew my congrat
ulations on their verv suecesslu1 celebra
tion of the Fourth, but for their disinter
ested and praiseworthy ellorts. Tho day
would have come and gone with nothing
to distinguish it from any other day ol
the year except perhaps a display of
bunting. Heiiieinheriiig the verv slight
encouragement they received from other
societies, civic and military, whom they

attracted to the city by their advertise- I
in nts and the vry enjoyable time had
by every one, it j but just that they
should receive some sort of an acknowl
edgement that their ellorts are appreci
ated by our citizens. I will only add that
in the future the announcement that tbe
Knltfhls have a celebration in charge will
be a sullii ieiit yuaraiitt e of its complete

were ireeiy criticised, but they moved

some money and encouragement
When the proper time came it was quiet
ly announced mat iney proposed, with
the funds on hand, to open a public li
brary in this city. As this was a means
of improvement Cairo had never cniov-
ed, their proposed action was hailed
with delight not only by their friends.
but by many who bad hitherto len

Caiiio, July 7th 177.
T o theLdilorof the Cairo Rer.i.criN:
lu your issue of July UU appeared a
communication from "Cilimi" censuring
the ollicers ot the I iv for their remark
able conduct In the case of the old negro
who wan beaten to death by Messrs.Latt
uerand lleim. I do not b arn that this
article or your cditori.il on Hie Mibject has
called loi th any reply horn, our valiant
sheril), or vigilant coroner, or that tin y
have yet taken any action jn the matter.
Are we to understand that this case is a
sample of the way they propose to ad
minister the law during 'heir term of
olllce ? I protest against blowing this
matter to drop without further comment.
"took oi.u jimmii: nitowN."
According to the A'u, was a "harmless
inoffensive old man, and was
considered honest by those who knew
him." Now, it tnav be that this "harm
less, inollensive old man" grew in one
night to be a desperate, reckless crimi
m l, for ridding the world ol whom
Messrs. Lattner and lleim deserve our
commendation and thanks. But if this is
true there should be other evidence of it
than the mere word of the men w ho did
the killing. If Messrs. Lattner and
lleim are sure theli conduct was justifia
ble they should
KKMAXU AV INVkVITGATIUX,
nor rot u:.til they have obtained it.
And it Shcrid Saup and Corner Able, or
the acting coroner, devire to retain the
confidence of the community they must
see that eueh an investigation
is made and a verdict render
el in accordance with the tacts.
I do not wish to blame these olllcluls un
justly. I preler to think them compe
tent and faithlul. I preler not to believe
the. cruel s tatement that Sheriff Saup ap
proached the bedside of the poor old
man. roughly cut open the bandages
which bound his broken arms, and
against the entreaties and tears ot his
friends, and their solemn protestations
that he w as
Drugged the poor old victim Irom his
bed, and part ,vay to the jail, and then,
llnding li i in actually about to expire,
returned him to the house, to die a short
time alter, terribly punished for what,
perhaps, was his Ilrst, and that may be,
only a slight crime,
I have no false sympathy for the crim
inal as against the ollieer ol the law, but
IF THIS 6TOIIV IS Till K,
I would rather be old Jimmy Brown and
till a thiet's g -ave, trusting to a merciful
God to forgive me in the future, than to
bear about with me the terrible remorse
which'tnust fill thu heart of the Sheriff
who so cruelly persecuted him.
