On Friday night ut eight o'clock,
Herbert Harrcll, son of Mr. Mosn Ii.
Ilarrell, and Miss Emma Barker,
daughter of .Mr. Miles Parker, were
married at the homo of tho bride, by
'Squire Comings. Tho wedding w as a
very quiet one, there being none but tin:
relatives of the principals present. Her
liert and his brldu are two ol Cairo's best
known young people, and their many
friends will wish them it pleasant Journey
through this llfo of trials and tribula
tions. Mayor Winter yesterday received a
dispatch from Mr. Cuuda, of the Cairo
and St, Louis road, stating that be, Mr.
Canda, had learned that the governim nt
woul I probably go to work on the river
bank back ol Cairo about the lirst ol
October. We hope this inlorination may
prove correct, for it is necessary to do
somethlng.'and that pretty soon, in or
der to protect the work already done.
Mayor Winter has been usirig every
t fTurt to have (lie work resumed at as
early a day as possible.
America Johnson is a colored ladv
who lives on Thirteenth street, between
Washington avenue and Walnut street.
On Friday night she left her house and
ran into the house ol one of her neighbors
lor a few moments. When she re
turned sho found that someone had been
there while she was gone. Tlio screen
had been cut out ot the window aud the
house ransacked Irom top to bottom,
but the intruder lailcd to get anything
of value, lor Amcri'-a hud nothing for
him to get.
John Davis, a darkey hailing from
Bushes' Bidge, Mo., came to Cairo on
Friday. He was here just long enough
to get beat out of ten dollars by a couple
of negro confidence men, and went home.
One ol the rascals approached Davis and
a-ked him to change a ten dollar note for
him. Davis pulled his wallet from bis
pocket aud handed him two live dollar
;otes, the darkey then walked off, for
getting to give Davis the ten dollar bill.
Davis told tho police of his misfortune,
but the perpetrator ol tho gamo could
not be found, and Davis went home yes
terdav chuck full of grief.
In an item published in till Bri.i.i:
x on Sunday morning last ii was
stated that the countv commissioners in
their settlement with Sherill Snip failed
to make a record of the numbers of the
orders received by them from the sherill.
We made the statement on what we con
sidered to be good authority, and with
no purpose of misrepresentation; and
as vu have since learned that the com
missioners did make a record ot the num
bers ot tho orders together with the
names of the parties to whom they were
issued, we take ideas ure in making the
Mr. George O'llura, who for the
last two or three years was rvchrk in
McGauiey's drug store, and who after
the death ot Mr. McGauley, bad charge
of the establishment up to the time it
was destroyed by lire, will go to St.
Louis to-morrow tor the purpose ot pur-.
chasing a complete stock ol drugs and

street, and expects to be able to open up
his store In two or three weeks. Mr.
OTIara is an energetic mid thorough

success in his enterprise.
Jack Winter is an inepressible fraud.
lie lias been fooling our people so lang
about a mythical picnic excursion that
thev have lost all confidence him. Tin-
grand excursion which was advertised
to come here to-day, did not even make a
start trom Cairo, and even tin-.S',m, of
that city, yesterday a-ked, " What lias
become of Mayor Winter's picnic':"
Jack has gone out ot the excursion
business, and is now engaged, it is said,
in fishing. It's a big bite that he is after
the Cairo post oltice ami we are told
he is around with bait in the shape of let

section that the president will not wink
at. Jack expects to leave lor Washing
Brady, late nn nttacho of tho signal
service iu tins city, but more recently
stationed at Squan, New Jersey, was
married on last Sunday afternoon to a
well-known young lady of that place.
From the Monmouth Democrat, pullshcd
at Freehold, N. J., we tako the following
Avery interesting wedding ceremony
took place at the residence ol Captain

alternoon last. Sergeant l.dmuml Urady,
ol the United States signal servico corns,

young lady. After the ceremony, which
was celebrated uy mo nev. .nr. garrison.
of tho M. E. church, the company wore
invited to partake Irom tlio tea table,
richly laden with the choicest viands,
The best wishes of the entire community
follow the happy pair.
Notwithstanding the cflorts of Chief
of Police Arter and his police force to
rid the town ot thieves, there Is an
over-stock of them. They are meatiest
kind of thieves, who will steal anything
nnd everything. On Friday evening
about seven o'clock Mrs. . Barney
Crain left her homo on Washington
avetmo nearly opposite tlio Bci.i ktix
oSlee. nnd walked to tho corner of
Twelfth street, w here she stood a few
minutes talklmr to a lady lriend. When
slid returned sho found two burly ruf
lians in tho house, ono of whom was
making his way up stairs, and tho other
was busily enraged in looking about
the parlor. She inquired ot them what
they wanted, and was Informed that
they were in search of something to cat.
Mrs. Cralii hi a rather uutborativo tone
and biiskes&liku air ordered them to
vamoose, which they did In good stylo.
Mayor Winter has changed his mind,
nnd will not start for Washington to-day;
nnd he Is not certain now Just when ho
will go. 11a Is very guarded In his talk
regarding his visit to tho national capl
tol, and says no ono out side of a select
few oi his personal Irlends knows any
thing about thcobjoctot his visit. If ho

will know all about It; but if he should
be disappointed in Ids mission ho alone
will be the sufferer, He don't want too
ni'u y friends to help him keep his so

on ihe part of his honor there are those
who believe he Is after tlio Cairo post
olllee, ami that that Is what Is taking
hlui to Washington. His visit certainly
has nothing to do with the appropriation
for tho improvement of the rivar for
that subject will not como up before De
cember, and as congress is not In session
there Is no one in Washington who could
help him any in tho matter. All things
considered, Jack's movements aro sur
rounded by a mystery tho bottom of
which it is impossible to get at.

UAYOK WINTER'S PICNIC.
It Will Tat.e Place on Thursday Next
Mayor Winter desires us to say to Ihe
citizens oi t:,nio ami to tno piiiuic along
the river point that was desirous of joins
Ing him in bis trip to Lawton's Bluff, up
Tennessee river, that unavoidable accis
dents caused tbe postponement of the
same. At last the river has become so
low it is impossible for the Eekert or
any other eonicatable boat large
enough to carry such a largo excursion
over the grand chain of rocks in the Ohio
river above Caledonia. Hence he will,
on account ol the lateness ot the season,
be compelled to abandon tho above
named excursion till next season, for
which he is sorry.
In place ol the above named excursion
he will, under the same management,
give one on Sept. 20, from Mound City,
to Hickman, Ky., to w hich ho invites all
his friends and those wishing to unite
with him, promising them just as pleas
ant a trip as tho previous one advertised.
For particulars see small bills.
To the citizens of Padueah ho desires
to say that, although having been com
pelled to abandon his Tennessee river
excursion, that It the water will permit
during the Padueah fair, he will get up
an excursion that will amount to fully
1,000 people, which will make up for
their previous disappointment. It

From the New York Bulletin: "For
years uast the National Association of
steamboat owners hayo been seeking a
recognition of their Interests from con
gress and have failed. At their recent
meeting in Buffalo they renewed tho
attempt. The modifications of law that
the steamboat owners desire aro three.
Under the present law, every steam
vessel must be Inspected annually, and
the'eertificate granted, at a cost of $25, is
pronounced valueless, because in any
litigation, tho owners are still required
to prove, by independent evidence, that
the vessel and boilers were good, nnd
that tho oilicers were nualilled. They
desire to have the certilicate cover these
points and competent to establish them
without further evidence, thus avoiding
costs nnd suits for damage nnd loss when
not clearly Justified. They nsk, too, to
have their liability lor damage restricted
to tho value ot tho vessel causing iniury
In the case ol river steamboats, and par
ticularly that they may be relieved from
the need ot introducing patent appliances
on their craft until these huve been tested
by tho board of steambeat Inspectors.
As it Is, they are required to ndopt nny
contrivance approved by the board of
inspectors and tho secretary of the
The ask also to have the system abol
ished which requires steamboat officers
to pay a largo sum every year for license
to ply their vocation, when railroads nnd
other common carriers are allowed to go

Is a notorious fact. It Is theretore of vital
importance to check maladies in their
birth, ere they have a chance to develop
other nnd more dangerous disorders. As
a means of checking complaints which,
if allowed to proceed, finally disorder
tlio entire system, Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters Is a mcdicinn tho use of which
cannot bo too strongly urged upon the
sick and feeble. Tho lunctions are regu
lated by it, it insures the acquisition of
vigor to tho debilitated, and it substitutes
a cheerful condition of mind for gloom
nnd despondency. Pyspepsla, constipn
tlon, liver complaint, and kidney and
bladder troubles yield to its remedial In
fluence; it counteracts a tendency to goat

purely botanical sources, and in this, as
in every other respect, U superior to the
mineral remedies of tho pharmacopoeia.
