There will be a special meeting ol

tion in the library rooms, on Monday
afternoon, at three o'clock. A general
attendance is desired. This meeting is
tor the purpose of adopting resolutions
relative to the late. Alfred B. Saflord,
Esq., which may be a slight tribute to
his w orth. He needs no words ot ours:
his ow n works speak his praise. From
the birth of our association, till the
present hour, his hand, strong and
brave as any man's could be, his heart
tender and Kind as any woman's, have
been ours, to help, to counsel, to com
tort and protect. How many rough
places be has smoothed for us, how
many obstacles he has removed
Irom our oath, no one can tell.
nd now In the room endeared to us by
how many memories of the noble heart
now hushed, we desire to meet and add
to ttio many otlerings showered on a
grave so revered, ours; small and slight
as a sprig of acacia among evergreens ;
yel breathing of tender friendship and
sorrow, Irom the feeble women, whom
he loved to help, and who will miss him
so sorely. By order or the Vice I'rcst

We learn through Messrs. tircen A

that the mandamus suits against the
county and city, wherein demurrers
have been tiled to test the sufficiency of
the petitions for man.lamtis would not
come up for hearing belore t he next
January term of court, at which time a
lull argument be had, witli good
prospects of a decision in favor of our
"t!y and county. We further learn
through Messrs. Green & Gilbert that an
examination of the journal proceedings ol
l 'c'slative session of IS.'u discloses the
fact that in the passage of tint act ol
1Si7, authorizing the subscription ol
counties, cities, etc., in aid ol the con
sfuction ol railroads, the record in the
otlice of the Secretary of Stale docs not
show that the forms ol law were com
plied with, viz: That the law was passed,
which tact, if established, will, nf we

defeat the bonds subscribed by our city to
the C. & V. and C. & .St. L. railroads

Chief Arter at once recognized, as many
others will, in the description given by
Marshal Huberts, II, A. Cunningham,
who some tour months ago, made his
headquarters at Winter Jt Stewart's
auction establishment, and went about
this city and neighboring towns repairing
and tuning pianos. Mr. Arter iuiinedi
atelv set to work to find out what he
could in regard to Cunningham's course
previous to ins arrival in Cairo, and he
acquired information to (lie cll'cct that he
has a family living somewhere in the
upper part of tue State, whom he left to
go abroad to carry on his profession.
Vt P.iducah CuHiiingliam became ac
quainted with Mis King, who was the
daughter ot a highly eateeined Presby
terian clergyman. He stole her away
from her homc.and brought her to Mound
City in a skill. At this town they re
mained for some tunc, living as man and
wife, Cunningham carrying on the btisi
ness ot tuning pianos until titties became
dull, when he came to Cairo, A skid
was again brought into use to transport
him and .Miss King Irom Mound City
to Cairo. While in this city,
the couple occupied rooms in Dr. Ward
tier's building on Commercial aveitue,
Cunningham making his headquarters
at Winter it Stewart's auction house, in
the same building. He was considered
very much of a gentleman, being de
cidedly quiet and rem rved. and treating
every body with wlmtii be came in con
tact with marked puliieiii .s. Ihe til
position of Mis- K eg to keep i,vmi
from the outside wm i I was partial, any
noticeable, il being a very rare occurrence
to see her oJtslde ol her room, tiilier
alone or iu company Willi Cunningham.
She looked about twenty years ol age
and was exceedingly pretty, and when
she did make her appearance on the
streets, attracted eotuMdcrable attention.
Cunningham remained iu Cairo so;:ie
two months or more, and went to Col-,
umbos, Ky., the mode of travel again
being by the Use ol a skill'. At
this place the couple remained
several weeks, und Miss King became
the mother of a child. .We next Iiml
