deficient in executive ability. Ho has not

Two colored children liavu recently
been kidnapped fmiii tho corral and tho
consequence is the excitement there just
now is intense. Various theories havo leon
advanced to supply a cause for tho abduc
tion. Some say that tho doctors have
caused tho capture in order to satisfy
themselves, bv experiment, ns to how long
a healthy colored child can live beforo it
dies from starvation, and to ascertain just
what the symptoms are before death. This
seems to us imiwobnblc tho idea
of an overwrought mind. Another
theory is that tho children have
been stolen and shipped to tho New England
Colored Midget Agency at Boston, where
these poor little innocents are taught und
sold like sheep in open market, and shipjied
to Africa. There they resume their native
habits and run wild. This theory we also
dismiss as hardly worthy of belief. The
last, and very reasonable one is. that the
fathers of the children, being members of
the Greenback club, certain white Republi
cans, in order to intimidate them and compel
them to return to the Republican fold, have
perpetrated the outrages and will keep the
cllllilretl lUOilell until tne poor oisuiti ieu
parents comply with their cruel terms.
When such things can be done under tho
blazing light of the Nineteenth century, in
a country supposed to be free and governed
by law, is it not time to pause? Let the
colored in in reflect.
If the wild game in the vicinity of
Hunter's Roost were possessedot the iiiform-
ition imparted to The Bci.i.etix they
would probably hunt their hiding places
and remain their until Hodges, llunim and
Reeve returned from their blood-thirsty
pursuit. The atmosphere of the court-house
yesterday was charged with business. Hun-
taxes were unlocked, gun barrels wiped and
blown through, ramrods jointed and dis
jointed, cartridges charged for their mur-
lerous work in short it resembled, in a ui-
minutive way, a New York armvry on the
night preceding an Orange parade. Ag.iint
limiting, conducted on scientific principles,
there can be no reasonable objection; but the
wholesale slaughter which is the inevitable
result of a hunt by these gentlemen is op
jsised to all humane ideas as well as to
sound economic principles. We do
not mean the dead and dying
who bite the dust in answer to the unerring
aim of the huntsman, for thev do not figure
in tiii ctie: but that large Ixxly of the deni
zens of the wool who lie down and die from
Iteer fright at the approach of a niemWr of
the Cairo club. Game laws can not rea.-h
such a state of things, and we know of lo
remedy for it except fortitude on the part
if the frightened game. If the little fools
inly knew the absolute safety of their
positions, they would mount to the tree
limlis gaze roguishly at the hunters, apply
their thumbs to their respective noses, and
tell them t' bang away.
All of them have used Dr. Bull's Blood
Mixture. Who? Those who heretofore
suffered with Boils and Pimples, but who
are now free from such annoyances.

THE ".lollS I'OHTKH" SCARE IN THIS CITY
MKET1NO OK THE HOARD OK HEALTH THIS
The news that the tow-taat John Porter,
with several cases of yellow fever on taard,
was on its way up the river and would
probably arrive here to-morrow evening
was the topic of conversation in town yes
terday afternoon. Two of the officers of
the Porter Messrs, Barney Crane and
Angelo McBride are residents of this city.
From a letter written by one of these gen
tlemen it has been ascertained that a man
named Murphy, one of the crew and u
citizen of this place, was taken sick on the
morning of the 25th below Vicksbiirg, and
died in the hospital at that city the follow
ing morning. When ataut fifty miles above
Vicksburg, the engineer of the Porter died,
Theboatput back to that town with the re
mains and with tV) brother of tho dead
man. After supplying the vacancy tho trip
was resumed, and information was received
hero yesterday afternoon that tho Porter
would be quarantined below Memphis by
the authorities of that city. The number of
fatal cases on the Porter is reported at last
uccounts at seven, with ten others prostrat
ed by the disease. Our board of health has
been convened by the mayor this morning,
and every precaution will doubtless betaken
to render ussecure against the presence of the
scourge, There is not the slightest occasion
for alarm, but our authorities aro actiug
wisely in taking timo by the forelock, and
doing whatever can bo done togimrd against
the npnroach of tho disease.
We all have our preferences; but no one
prefers to hear u crying baby when tho
fact is so well known that Dr. Bull's Baby
Syrup would at once quiet it.

Miss At la Mot hie, a young lady who is
highly recommended as an instructress of
vocal music, has just arrived in Cairo, with
a view of organizing a free vocal class for a
concert. She has secured tho uso of Tem
perance hall to give lessons in, and invites
Sabbath-school scholars of every denomi
nation to meet her there on Monday morning
at ten o'chx-k.
Miss Moore lias been furnished with a
list of our best amateur talent, and would
be very grateful for their assistance at her
concert. Her Masonic connection give her
a substantial introduction. Her programme
is attractive, and deserves a largo attend
ance. We wish her every success in our
Colutiiocsk Saloon-. This saloon, un
der the management of Mr. John H.
I'.eecher, grows in popularity with its pat
rons. And so it should, for Mr. 11.
prides himself ou the quality of
his liquors, wines and cigars. He dis
penses no:u-but the best of these articles.
Meals are also provided at the house at all
hours. The public are invited to give him
Smokers, if you wish a fine "Key West'
or "Imported' cigar, call at Korsmeyer's
cigar stoK. It is the only place in the city

I hope none ot the gentlemen present
will be "chirked up" with the notion that I
have Hsted myself, and intend giving
them a dissertation on their Inloved green
back question. I understand the wisdom
of keeping silent adopting the "still
water'' system, leaving to their imagina
tions the depths of my comprehension of
that subject. Tho only public display I
ever expect 1,1 uiake of my knowledge of
greenbacks, is my ability to give them as
rapid a circulation ns opportunity will
M-niiit. I hope too, that none of the la
dies in attendance, suppose that I have grap
pled with the mighty "pull-backs" I trem
ble at the bare idea, and leave it to French
lress-makcrs to settle a matter of such
moment. But the back I have taken up on
this occasion, is the one fast superceding the
thrilling topics of weather and servant
iris, in polite circles tho fashionable
feminine back. I know I have a delicate
task Ik.-fore me that I mut choose my
words with taste and skill, for my suhjrYt
is at its best, a painful one.
I often wonnderwhen I don my studying
cap, it our mothers una gruinimoiiiers
had any backs, or if that important part of
their anatomy was left out, to be developed
according to the progressive Darwinian
theory, in their brain-cultured children
If so, I think wp women of to-day, have an
other grievance to add to the long roll we
are constantly reading the fact that we
did not exist at least two generations sooner.
However, upon cool reflection, and upon
tath ancient and modoren medical authori
ty, I am inclined to think they did have backs
good, strong, broad ones too, without an
ache or pain ataut them. Taking it for
granted then, that our mothers and grand
mothers hail these troublesome articles,
just as we have, that nature formed them,
ju.it as she formed us, w hy were their backs
a source of strength and help to them,
while ours seem to be composed of nothing
but a mass of quivering, writhing nerves;
each nerve vibrating with its ow n peculiar
pain ? Of course there is a cause, and with
out having to search through volumes of
scientific lore, I think I have discovered
the source of the evil. It is contained in
the one significant word fashion, with its
necessary accompaniments, pride, ambition,
Perhaps it would be as well, before I be
gin deluging you with a shower of theories
and good advice, to say to those persons of
an investigating turn of mind, who may
w ish to know if I live up to w hat I preach,
that I think when I am generous enough
to establish rules for them to live by, they
ought to Ih.' perfectly satisfied, without in
sisting upon mo living up to them, too.
You know Shakespeare says: "It is a good
divine that follows his own instructions.
I can easier teach twenty what were good
to be done, than be one of the twenty to fol
low my own Instructions."
Let me dismount from the gay Pegasus
who is ambling nlong with inc so cheer
fully over a road of rocks and thorns, and
walk along soberly, ns becomes the oc
casion, pluck such flowers and shrubs of
common sense, as grow by the way-sido,
It is an actual and miserable fact, that
you can scarcely find ft woman who is not
possessed of an aching back, with its twin
companion, a set of shattered nerves. They
are the children of tight and heavy clothing,
dissipation and over-work.
Now I am well aware of tho fact, that
thero is scarcely onu woman
out of twenty, who will
acknowledge that she wears her clothing
too tight, and yet I know there is scarcely
one out of the twenty that does not do so,
I really think they do not realize It them
selves, tho.process is so gradual, yet, for this
reason, none tho less hurtful. I have seen
friends of my own, good, sensible, truthful
women in every other respect, dress them
selves in clothing so tight they would havo
to contract their lungs and draw themselves
in and up, in that peculiar manner that
must be seen to be understood ami appre
