If the health officers would pay a little

in his eribrts to put the city into good sani

been promptly and apparently with great
cheerfulness complied with.
The attention of Health Officer Sum

-The health of Cairo was never better
than now. There is a prevalence of no
disease, and that the yellow fever will get a
footing in our city we do not believe. When
the fever was so fatal at Memphis a few
years ago, Cairo escaped ; and we are con
fident that, with proper sanitary regulations,
we have nothing to fear this season.

familiarly known to the police force and

The State Hoard of Health should de
clare quarantine at Cairo, and pay the ex
pense thereof. This is sound sense. Cairo
does not want to be yellow-fevered, but she
is too poor to pay for an effective quaran

Hoard of Health would be respected more
than the City of Cairo loaded on a tug and
steaming down the riwr.
Alittloson of Mr. Robt. W. Miller
barely escaped being crushed to death by a
falling sign yesterday afternoon. The little
fellow was sitting in the door of his father's

a gust of wind caught the large sign on the
top ot the imiMing, tearing it on an. I caus

A meeting of the loard of health will
be held at the council chamber this morn

meeting is culled by Mayor Winter in order
that the steps already taken against yellow
fever may be furthered as much as possible.

speech, Judge llhd wandered away from

Judge Allen a number of blows, and
sought to convince his colored friends that

should not do Htich things. Ik, in Il(,t

such things are wrong.
An Irishman named McGritty, who
arrived in Cairo a few days ago in seurcu of
work, was taken suddenly ill on tho levee
yesterday morning and had to bo taken

The examining trial of James Smith,
charged with burglariously entering Levi
Myers' store in this city, and stealing a
safe and contents about $17.1 w-s had
yesterday before Justice Robinson, in the
warehouse ot Ilmkle & Thistlewood. A
large crowd of people attended and watched
with inteiis'i interest all the developments
of the trial. Win. C. Mulkev, Esq., pro.-,
ecuted, and tho redoubtable Cunningham
defended the case. Our renders are familar
with the more prominent facts. The only
new testimony elicited was the confession
of the defendant that he had com
mitted the offense wheieot he had been
accused. This places his final conviction
bevond a reasonable doubt. Mr. Mulkev
leclined to make an argument, but Justice
Cunningham thought he ought to lift his
voice for his unfortunate and innocent
client, where reputation and liberty were
imperiled through the machinations of
evil-minded persons. He had proven that
Smith has u good character for honesty up
to the very hour in which the felony was
perpetrated, and he was resolved the court
should not convict in ignorance
of this important testimo
ny. It was a one-sided question the
proof was all against the ill-fated Smith
and the prejudices of the multitude in vast
proportions were confronting him. But
Cunningham was equal to the emergency.
To him, "there was something of pride in
the perilous hour." The mighty combina
tion that bore down upon him ftruck no
terror to his soul. He scowled upon the
law, the proof, the prosecution and court a
look of intense defiance, and confidently
grappled with his mighty theme.
An American citizen is a free
man by birth and inheritance, and
cannot be imprisoned for light and trivial
causes. This the orator knew, and told the
court so in persuasive and impassioned
uttenuice. Said he; "Sir, if men are to be con
vieted in such tlimsy evidence then you
must build another penitentiary of vast di
mensions to hold them."'. He seemed "preg
nant with celestial tire." Kindling with his
theme he rose to the loliiest heights of
god-like eloquence. But it must not be.
inferred that he istiuent without reasoning
power. Ho can be coldly and severely
logical. Syllogism after syllogism strono,
compact, unanswerable was hurh'd at the
court. We uish we had space for the
whole effort. Here is a sample: "If the
defendant is guilty he ouyht to be punished,
if he is innocent he ought to be acquitted."
This was the crowning glory the awful
elimax of the grandest f.rersie effort that
the Justice has yet delivered. Then came
the solemn voice of the court: "I shal
hold the defendant to answer an indictment,
and fix his bale at five hundred dollars."
He was committed to jail.

The Jonesboro Gazette of a late date says:
"The Cairo Hi i.i.in iN Co. put up a new
Hoe Press this week, and is now the U st
printing establishment in this portion of
the State. The Daily Bi i.i.kti.n in now, un
der the management of Messrs. Oberly
it Nally. a first -class paper, and is constant
ly improving. We wish the Bi i.i.k.tin
success, and il deserves to be patronized by
all who w ish to sustain a good paper in
Southern Illinois, and especially at Cairo.
The citiz- ns of Cairo themselves are some
what to blame for the inellicieiicy of its
newspapers. Let them patronize one good
paper well, and it will do them inure good
than half a dozen newspaper abortions, that
an-dawdling out a sickly existence."'
Now, we wish to talk frankly with our
citizens. At an expense of nearly l.'joo
dollars we haven-dressed Til K Bi i.i.i.i ix
and now giveto our people a ni-ut and we
believe not uninteresting paper. In doing
this we einpioy a considerable number of
hands, and pay to them from $7,000 to $10,
(Mill a year, and give our patronage to dry
goods mem provision deulcis, butchers,
clothiers, coal men, banks, and others,
And we think we may say, without ex
nggeraiion, that Tun Bi lmctin, by its
advocacy of the interests of Cairo, by cure
fully watching over its government and
that of Alexander county, saves to the tax
payers many dollars every year. But, we
nit! compelled to say, that our merchants do
not give this paper the patronugn they
should. Look at its columns, How many
of our business men patronize, us? Very
few. The result is, we are not getting any
mh-quate financial returns for our news
paper labors; mid, unless patronage in
creases, we shall hot long be able to give to
our people a paper like Tiik Bi i.i.min,
We need more patronage. We must have It.
