Gov. Cullcm aad Party Eupycd
Their Visit to Cairo.
The Chicago T'unts of Thursday con
tains n letter from Springfield in which
we lind the following reference to the
recent visit ot Gov. Cullom and party to
Cairo. The letter was evidently written
by a member of thu excursion party:
Mr. Aekermau, having deterinliu J to
go to New Orleans on important business
ot the Illinois Central railroad company,
was not forgetful ol the lact that the peo
ple el' Illinois have a direct interest iu the
prosperity ol unit road, and thai the gov
ernor is tx officio a member ul iis direc
tory. He consequently inferred that Mr.
Cullom might then lore "give couute
nar.eo" to his propo.-cd e ffort lonn ica.-e
the earnings ol the Central by creating
new and adding to its old business, lie
accordingly Invited the governor and bis
family to accompany him ; and that the
state might be lully represented, also
asked the railroad commissioners to bes
come members ot the party. (; iimuis
siui rs Smith and Bogue could no! accept
the Invitation, but Commissioner Oherly
did, and added two hundred
pounds ol weight to the 'excursionists.
At Cairo tho reception of the Cullom
Ackeruiau excursionists was ei'thusl-'
astic. iiy the governor it is pronounced
the most enjoyable atluir of hi-political
lite. The Cairoltes excelled themselves
iu tins aflair. Such citizens as dipt,
llalliday, Col. Taylor, Judge llio?s, Col.
Mclvai'iir. Drs.Wardnernnd Duniilng.and
Mcsrs. Barclay, Fisher and Irvin were
untiring In t il'orts to make the distln
guixlicd visitors enjoy themselves. The
reception by tho governor and the hall
and banquet were Iht features of tho oc
casion. At tho reception, In respoeso to
an address by a colored delegation, Gov
ernor Cullom mudo a good speech, full
of wlso suggestions and timely advico.
At the banquet, President Ackerman,
on behalf of bis party, made a briel
speech ot thanks, into which, with
much cleverness, ho injected a largo
number ot Interesting facts about his
railroad. Gov. Cullom left behind him
at Cairo a good Impression woe there
irolden opl.iions from all sorts and colors
ot people, nnd the modest and' frank
bearing of Mr. Ackerman secured for
him many now friends.
The Cairo revel done, President Acker
man gathered the party Into his fine new
car its first trip about 4 o'clock Wed
nnilay morning, Rth Inst., and slarted
lor New Orleans. He traveled "special,"
running only fltteen miles an hour nnd
side-tracking at night. His object was
to look nt the track of tho Chicago St.
Louis nnd New Orlonns rollrond, ami ob
serve the country through which It runs,
anil lie neretotore traveled only in day'

At a meeting of the Women's Tem

A number of boys who nre old

habit of congregating about the C. & V.

such gatherings engender ill feeling and
ouarrcls. Last Friday evenlns a num
ber ol tho young men gathered, as ens
toipury, when a dispute arose between
Edward Shippen and Fred Gregson,
which culm'nated In a light, nnd the re
sult was that (iregscn pulled out his pis
tol (or rather his apology for one, as the
calibre was of tho inomito si.e) nnd
shot at Shippen, but - owing
to the above mentioned insignia

ball only penetrated Shippen's clothes,
doing no fun her damage than to tearfully
ntlright both ot tho youths. Ono saw
death staring him in the face; the other

lesson to both. Young Gregson had a
