IILP THI POOL
An Ayaal to our Literal Hearted all
ien a on Behalf of th Poor
During the past few months our citi
zens have attended and liberally patroni
zed a number ot lealyaU. parlies and
other amiHeiaenta originated for charita"
ble aud beneficial purposes. We liuve
bad our fireman's balls, church suppers,
goveraor's rseeptlon, and a number of
ether events of more or less note. The
ebjecle tor which thestaflairs were given
were undoubtedly worthy, and received
the patronage and uesistanre of the pub
lie in good degree. Winter with all its
vigors is now here, and we must expect
that U will bring with it the usual suffer
ing aud want ot which thoe in affluence
and coailort know but little. Wa have
among us a number, ye, a large n itu-
ber of faasilies who are destitute of even
tho actual necessities ot life; .vitliont
tood or raiment, and with scarcely a
shelter to rover them. This clans, al
though it possibly contains an unworthy
element, has also amen j its number de
serving and" worthy people nie:i who
are unemployed and unable to see are
work, with large familcs depending up
on them for sustenance; widows, w ith
orphan children to support, without the
mean. This is the actual state ol
affairs in one very midst, aud it
beeomes the Christian duty of our citi
zen! to aflord them the much needed as
sistance. We know ol no better or more
feasible plan by which thi clas can be
benefited than that of giving either a fes
tival or seme ether entertainment. If
the proper parlies would take hold of the
matter in an energetic manner there la
not the shadow of a doubt hut what it
would meet with the hearty support and
substantial encouragement of our peo
ple. The great dillluulty is that we look
to others to do what wc should consider
a personal duty, and It this feeling can
once be overcome success is undoubted.
Let seme action be taken In regatd to
the matter without further delay.
We have no tfouht hut what
a hall could be secured with
ut charge, and the known liberality
ot our citizens Is sufficient assurance that
the necessary edibles would be lorthcosn

The disappearance ol Venus lat night
wus attributed by moa people to as
tronomical causes, but the belief is erro
neous Venus, we pre told, it ot tiio
feminine gender, and such being tke case
Is possessed ot a'l the virtues attributed
to woman. M'lio Mario D'Este, with
her troupe of P. B., appeared before
the citizens ot Cairo last evening, aud, In
consequence Venus (although at a very
great distance lrom the scene) hid
her bead In shame. Wu mention this
Inet that those misguided persons who
were deluded by false statements may
learn their error. An nudicn:o of some
three bun tired aud fifty to lour hundred
persons wus in attendance to wltnet-s
the most disgraceful aud
and brazen exhibition o! vulgarine
that has ever appeared apon the boards
ol the Athemmin. It matters not what
or who the troupe are, or trout whence
they came, the exhibition given by them
is unutterably dlsguetlng. With but a
lew . xeeptions there is not a feature in
, the entire programme but what Is in
tended to appeal to the lowest and most
degraded passions of man.
ComptUcd, as the audience was last

this character will have upon the morals

statutes of this State explicit- prohibit

now becomes the ifuty ol the ollleials to

Oh! now you strike me right. Do I
know ( As tho old lady said, if
there's one thing iUu know it ii hew
to tell good indigo. Do 1 know
Do I not- It is one great peculiarity of
his to leave HiOte who knew nun once in
business a remembrancer.. What ao 1
know ot him; Well, to be brief, 1 know
be would lick the butter oft a tick nig
ger's cake; steal acorns from a blind
nog, rob his grandmother of
her last corn dodger. Why he is a sour
anple of tho llret water, engine turned,
and will stand acid like mychrouometer,
1 karat, lull-jewelled wntch, that 1
drew fair in the Louisville Adenda to
the Bramlette lottery, which said watch
1 could not get, aa was loolish to draw
a watch worth $150, and have to pay
$13. 1 should have drawn a watch
worth $135, charges paid, but I did not.
Sich is life!
Well, do I know , and it
so to what extent? 1 know him to he a
double breasted, wood-dyed, XXN, A
No. 1 shyster. Pay? Why he would not
pay a quarter-dollar for a silver halt, he
Is so preptdlcal against paying, but buy
why il you havo anytning to sell,
from u wooden toothpick to an Iron,
clad man-of-war, Tu.n u tht man. lit
would buy Texas land, in fact, buy the
Russian debt he Is voluminous on the
buy. He is a mammoth buyer, but as a
payer he is inlinltessimal he Is minute
spiritual, without any materialization
he is non est on the pay,
Anber you likes to sold him tome
dingo dot is all right.

Other conditions being equal, there Is
no reason why a healthy man or woman
should not enjoy life; and it may well be
doubted whether adverse fortune has the
power entirely to destroy the happiness
ot one who sleeps soundly and whose di
gestion is gooJ. But lor the nervous,
feeble, dyspeptic invalid there is no corns
fort in iile. His existence Is Indeed a
wretches' one. Bat he should not despair
of relief. That benignant restorative,

to rheumatic ailments, cheers and relieves
