The heat of yesterday had a runaway
effect upon several teams. Dick Hurl's
left the front of Woodward's store about !3
o'clock in the afternoon and ran at break
neck speed down Ohio Levee. At the cor
ner of Tenth street the horses ran one each
side of a lamp post. One of them imme
diately imitated a circus man and stood on
his head, while the other made a Hying
leap into the air and fell upon
his back. No very serious dam
age was done excepting to the harness.
Adolph Swahoda's horse also took occasion
to try his speed and ut once engaged in an
interesting run-nway. Ho broke his liar,
ness and the wagon, but fortunately did
not break any person's neck. The team of
John Meycs of Missouri also made quick
time along Ohio Levee without the permis
sion of the driver. With the exception of
a wrecked wagon no great damage was
Dr. Thompson, an old man who came
to Cairo from the northern part of the State
about a year ago, was found dead iu the of
fice occupied by him above Ayer's store on
the levee. He was a homeopathic physician,
and for several months after his arrival here
made anil sold medicines, and managed to
eko out a scanty subsistence. Some two
months lincc bis health failed. He was
really a pauper without relatives or friends
at least in this community. And the gen
eral impression is that his death was caused
by neglect and lack of medical attention.
A charitable lady of the city sent him meals
during his protracted sickness. A meal
was left with him Tuesday night, and last
night' it was found untouched. The old
man was lying beside it, cold uud rigid in
the sleep that knows no waking. He had
on all of his clothes, except his coat, and the
position of the Imdy seemed to indicate
that he had been sitting upon his cot and
fell buck upon it to die. Little is known
o; his history. He appeared to be a harm
less, eccentric creature, extremely reticent
us to his circumstances, and was too proud
to beg. Not a few people knew of his
helpless situation, and among
them some high in authority and
whether the hand of charity was unjustly
withheld is a question we fo.bear to dis
cuss. This we do know, that he wasted
away in a slow decline, and died at last, in
the heart of the city of Cairo, without one
friend to do him a kind act, or whisper in
his ear a word of sympathy.

OITUESSIVE WEATHER YESTERDAY FOl'Il
Although the thermometer yesterday did
not indicate as great a dugree of heat as we
experienced during the heated spell, the
weather was more oppressive than it has
been at any time during the season. The
whole city broke into a general complaint
against the fierceness of the sun's rays, and
several cases of sunstroke wero re
port.'d. Altout 5 o'clock in the evening
Mr. W. F. Shuckcrs was prostrated by the
heat and for an hour his life was in great
danger. He fell in the lower hall of The
Bulletin building, and luckily received
prompt attention. Dr. Smith was immedi
ately called and succeeded in
giving the sufferer relief. He was
removed to his residence ut. 1 1 o'clock. Mr.
Thomas Nally of The Bulletin was over
come while in the oflice of the late Dr.
Thompson, over whose body he had learned
an inquest would be held, at about 0 o'clock
last night. He was taken to Barclay Bros.'
Levee drug store and there received atten
tion that soon restored him to conscious
ness. He was afterwards removed to The
Bulletin office and was prescribed for by
Dr. Dunning. At midnight he was out
of danger, and will no doubt be
able to attend to his ordinary duties in a
few days. Thomas Clark, a negro black
smith, had a severe attack during the after
noon and late last night his death was
momentarily expected. We learn also that

The famous Quadroon ball at New Or
leans, at which the Visiting Statesmen prac
ticed the poetry of motion with the dark
eyed and olive-hued mail lens of the Crescent
City as partners, was heralded far and wide
at the time and created much comment. It
was maintained by close students of our
social system that the example set by the
most distinguished gentlemen of the coun
try would bear its fruit, and what was
then considered an novation would ere long
become a common occurrence in society.
It is no business of ours just here to discuss
this vast problem its effect upon both the
white and black races, and upon the social
customs of the country. We content our
selves with chronicling events.
One day last week a colored congregation
of this city gave a barbecue at Locust Grove
and the entertainment was extended into
the night. Everything passed oil smoothly
until about eleven o'clock, when the mana
gers of the affair were astonished to see
groups of young white men ap
proach the place set apart for
dancing, ami engage in conversation
the lovely but dusky and languid maidens
of the dance. The astonishment grew into
absolute amazement when some of the
young men chose partners and steping up
on the platform, awaited for the music to
strike up. It was an extraordinary sight.
The night was close und sultry. Not a
breath of air was stirring. U'lon the plat
form standing side by side, exchanging
sentiments of devotion and affection, and
gazing longingly into each other's eyes, were
nine of the noblest sons of Cairo and an
equal number of the fairest daughters of
Afric's sunny clime. The music struck up
and ofT they went. Senator Trumbull him
self could not have excelled his
youthful imitators. The "double
shuttle," "pigeon wing" and nil the
master strokes of the art terjwiehorean were,

AliltlVAL OF THE TOWHOAT JOHN 1'OHTEH
NO FF.VEH ON IIOAUD STATEMENT OF THE
f A1TAIN AND IMLOT CHANE.
During the past week the most sensation
al rumors about yellow fever on board the
towlxmt John Porter has been current in
Cairo. She was represented us a chamel house.
It was said almost every one of her crew
was dead or dying. Crane and McBride, her
pilot had, It was said, died and been dumped
into tho river. Her arrival was dreaded by
the timid, and preparations were made by
Mayor Winter and the Hoard of Health to
quarantine her. Yesterday afternoon Duke
Ensnimger's spy-glass distinguished her
rouuding tho Point, and Mayor Winter,
Quarantine Olllcer Dunning and Health
Officer Summerwell boarded the tug Cache
and steamed down the river to head her
oil'. About five miles below the city these
officers boarded the supposed to be infected
steamboat, and found her in perfect sani
tary condition with all on board enjoying
excellent health. Shu wus therefore per
mitted to steam up to the city and land at
the wharf. Last night she went on to Cin
cinnati. The captain says he lost two men below
Vieksburg and one of his engineers above
that city, but that neither of them had the
yellow fever. He thinks they were over
come by the heat.
Mr. Barney Crune, who was one of the
pilots on the Porter, in an interview with a
Bulletin reporter last evening, said that
when the bout left New Orleans all on board
were well, but that a little distance below
Vieksburg a man named Murphy and
another man whose nnmu had slipped his
memory were taken sick, and were sent to
the hospital on arriving at Vieksburg. The
Porter continued on up the river ulsmt fifty
miles, when anotheryoung man, an engineer,
was taken sick and died. The lmut re
turned to Vieksburg and left the remains
there. She then came on north, and no
sickness has occurred on her since. Mr.
Crane says there is no doubt in Ids mind
that Murphy, who died in the hospital at
Vieksburg, and the other man who was sent
there with him, ami who is now on a fair
way to recovery, had the yellow fever. The
young man who died aliove that city, he
says, was a victim of the heat. The
boat, he says, is now perfectly
free from disease. Mr. Crane
was greatly amused at the stories he had
heard, since arriving home yesterday, of the
terrible havoc the dread disease was caus
ing on the Porter, and expressed his opin
ion bluntly of the people who would start
such falsehoods to frighten folks.
On and after August 1st the price of Ice
will be advanced to 1 cents per jKuind
