to have moralizing eifi'ct upon people.

A colored women named Belle Ham
ton was before Justice Comings yesterday,
Letitia Green charging to her account the
theft of "wipe." The charge was not iu
adn ed, and Belle was acquitted.
Such of our ruilroad officials as left
the city to visit respected relatives abroad,
or in response to.presslug business calls, or
for some other cause are, with all their
clerks and assistants, at their posts again
refreshed end rejuvenated by their respite,

Vote for Allen, for Harman, Ilal'.idcy
and Robinson, They are all nominees of
the Democratic party, for whose success the
people of Cairo and Alexander county
should feel an especial concern.
Charles Allen was taken before Judge
Bird, yesterday, on the compound charge of
disorderly conduct, and carrying concealed
weapons. Being found guilty ha was fined
$33 and costs, and calaboosed for 85 days.
The election of Judge Allen will drive
the "bloody shirt" and personal villiflcatiou
out of the political arena, in the 18th con
gressional district. His election will be a
j jst rebuke to that mode of electioneering.
It is said that over forty thousand
tickets have been provided for the use of
the voters of Alexander county to-day.
With this Bupply, nineteen tickets will be
wasted for every one that goes into the bal
. The deaths yesterday, were that of Mr.
Stanton and a colored woman named Stokes,
living in tae 4th ward, and a little daugh
ter of Mr. Anthony, resident of the 2nd
ward. The negro woman had been sick
over two weeks, and did not die of the fe
ver. The Baked Beans and Codfish festival
in Boston, and the Turnip-greens and Hog
Jowl matinee in Syracuse, have proved such
effective means for raising funds for the
churches that we suggest the adoption of
the idea in Cairo.. Mackerel or souse would
be a "tnking card," almost anywhere.
There was a rumpus, among the deck
hands of the steamer Henry Frank, yester
day, during which .a negro man received
several severe thumps over tbe sconce and
countenance. Warrants were issued, but a
diligent search failed to reveal the wherea
bouts of the offenders.
The""Bpecial tax" which the voters of
Alexauder county are called upon to vote
"for" or "against" to-day, will be applied,
if levied, to. the construction of a good
county road. Everybody in Cairo, who
would draw to our market the trade of the
country around us should vote "for the
John Curley got drunk, and being
drunk he became disorderly. Being taken
before Judge Bird the damaging charge
egainst him was proven, and the Judge
thought the insulted majesty of the law re
quired a solace of seven dollars. Curley
being impecunious consented to pay the
amount by a stay of ten days withMahoney.
Under the minority representation sys
tem you can cast three votes tor
one of the candidates for representative,
or one vote for three of them; or one and a
halt fur two of them. Votes cannot be
divided into a smaller fraction than a half.

Wc were mistaken in fixing the place
of Mr.Nally's burial in the cemetery of the
Lotus. As the matter seems to bo one of
consequence with some folks, we now take
occasion to say that the remains found sep
ulture outside the Mississippi levee, where
rest the bodies of tbe lamented Phil How
ard, and other victims of the terrible
scourge that "called and took few denials."
Democratic challengers -men who
know the duties of a challenger, and will
not fail to discliarcro them should be at all
the polls to-day. It is now known that at
least one hundred strangers are quartered in
the city, and that it is the aim of the
Republican managers to vote them for
Thomas. Especially soould the quota con
tributed by the steamers Laura Lee and
Henry Frank be watched narrowly.
Charles McKinney and James Hardin
are of that class of people who live by their
wits. It not being apparent to our police
force that Messrs. McKiuney and Hardin
were earning an honest livelihood, tl.ey
were "pulled" before his honor, Judge Bird.
The evidence lodged against them render
ing them subject to a sevcro application of
the "vag act," they were fined $100 each,
and given a Bhort stuy of execution thatthcy
might leave the city.
Brother Houpt informed the editor of
the Carbond&lu Free iress that he will
make such inroads into the Republican and
Democratic vote of Alexander county, as
will enable him to distance IIallj,day and
Robinson, and leave the county second only
to Layman. Houpt is a clever, companion
able old fellow, but old as bo is he has not
lived long enough to properly read the tenv
per of the people, The returns lie will re

utter astonishment at tha people's want of
It was reported to us that four new
cases of fever were developed yesterday,
and that three or four of the older cases
were still under treatment. As we have
before remarked, it seems to be the accepted
opinion that among those Who carry the
germs lu their system, ewes will continue
to occur, occasionally, for a period of about
two weeks, dating from the heavy frost
and freeze of Saturday night a week ago.
In other words, the freeze was fatal to tho
germs in tho atmosphere, but not to tliono
Hint lurked in tho liuman system.' -
Mr. II. H. Milbtirn, formo -Iy of the St,
Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern railroad,'
of this city, has been stationed nt Charles
ton, Missouri. Mr. M, was justly consider
ed one of the most efficient men connected
with the railroad service in this city.
Tho several railroad companies interest
ed in tho "Wuito Line," liavo iucrensed
their facilities for moving through freights
to An extent that will not fail to accommo
date all demands that will arise during tho
coming winter. The Cairo and Vincennes
has added tlt'iy cars as its quota.
-Tho old Baumgard rookery, at the cor
ner of 17th and Poplar, is a nuisance that
ought to be abated. It is filthy and dilnp'.
dtttcd gives out unwholesome smells, and
i'i liable ut any moment to tumble down
upon its inmates. If it can't bo renovated
end repaired it ought to be demolished.
Still they come and go. To-day we
strike the names of six of our old friends
from our subscription list and add but five
new ones. The new ones are welconi?.
The old ones, some of them have stood by
us for years and we part with regret. They
assured us that it is not bocause they lovo
The Bulletin less, but because times are
hard and money scarcer. One other stops
until winter comes. May it soon be here.
Among the recent deaths in this city
was ihat of a Dune, named Leon Peterson.
He was a cripp lc, a quiet unobtrusive man,
but"" a person of varied information and
more than ordinary culture. No man in
Southern Illinois wa9 more thoroughly fa
miliarized with tho modern history of Eu
rope. Mary years ago, while rounding
ing Capo Horn, his feet were frozen, so that
locomotion, with him, was quite difficult.
He died on Friday.
i In Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and
Mississippi, much of the cotten crop has
gone to wasto for wunt of pickers; but it is
believed, nevertheless, that an average crop
will be harvested. Bills were received here
Saturday evening for fifty car loads just
shipped from Columbus, Mississppi, which
will go East via. the Cairo and Vincennes
railroad. In anticipation of an increased
business in tha movement of cotton, the C.
& V. railroad company have greatly en
larged their facilities for transportation.
-The report current yesterday evening
to the effjct that the dead body of a negro
woman (who had not been seen for a week
or more) was found in the old Baumgard
building, at the coruer of Seventeenth and
Poplar, was not warrpn'.ed by the facts in
the case. Kate Stokes, a colored widow
woman, died there during the day; but had
been sick two or three weeks, and, at tho
time of her death, was under the treatment
of a physician. Furthermore, the building,
instead of being vacant, is occupied by two
or three families.

No troupe travel'ug ever won so rapidly
and wonderfully upou popular favor.
Crowded houses greet their entertainments
everywhere; and in truth no one can wit
ness them without feeling tho better and
happier fur it. It has been justly suiu of
the entertainment that the music, always
pleasing and vivacious and at times reolly
beautiful and captivating relieves the prod
igality of nonsense, and the nonsense re
lieves the profuse and bewildering situa
tions; and everybody is amused and goes
away with half a dozen pretty airs humming
in Uis head to be w'.iistled on the morrow.
, It is not for the want of kindly feeling
toward the lamented Dr. Waldo, Phil How
ard, Henry Wilcox and other victims of the
yellow fever, tlir.t wo do not besow npou
them the attention of deserved obituaries ;
but for tho reason discrimination might
give oflVuso, and for the further reason that.
for the sake of our readers wo desirs, ns
soon as may be, to dismiss the sorrow-giving
topic from our columns. With our citizens
who knew them, and relatives who loved
them, memory will s?rve as a more endur
ing re, ository than the perishable columns
of a newsppper, and iu tlitt repository wo
feel constrained to leave the storo of cher
ished recollections t'int so intensify our sor
rows over their loss. "After life's fitful
fever they sloop well" In life they were re
spected, in death thcy are lumcnted.
There is a continual stream of tramps
pouring into the South, the nttntction being
the warmer clima'e of tlu.t region, and the
absence of any necessity for overcoats or
heavier clothing. About ono hundred of
these creatures congregated at Fulton. Ken
tucky, a few days ago, and attempted to
capture a southern bound passenger train
on the New Orlcaus & Chicago rr.ilroad.
But for the interference of the citizens o.'
Fulton, who rallied to tho assmtunce of the
railroad men, the vagr.bonus would have
effected the capture. A few pistol shots
and well direct'! blows from bludgeons, in
connection with the determined aspect and
increasing numbers of the citizens, dis
pcrscd tho ruffians, and secured the pes
sago of the trnin without further hladcr
ance. Warm work was threatened for a
few moments, and we do not know but
that the scalping of a few scores of the
lazy rascals would have been tn act in the
iuterest of peace and humanity In the long

THE DEMOCRATIC RALLY LAST
' NIGHT. , ,
A DW CHOWD AND PI.KN7Y OF KNTUL'SIASM. .
Tho Democratic rally at tho Atboneuw
last night, was va earnest of the' fact' thut
tiio Democrats of Cairo intend to perform
their whole duty to their party ut the elec
Iinmcnso houfires and inusit!. from the
Delta band gave nmplo notice ot the plnco
of meeting, and by half-past seven o'clock
no less than five hundred voters had as
sembled in front of tho Atheneum.
At tho appointed time Judge Allen was
introduced to the crowd by Hon. Thomas
Wilson. The applause that followed veiy
pluiuly bhowed that Cairo Democrats are hi
"solid earnest" in their advocacy of the
claims of "Josh Allen."
Of tho spoech that followed we can only
speak in terms of praise. It was au open,
able and honest presentation of the claims
of the Democratic party and of tho short
comings and pernicious legislation of the
pr.rty in power. Unsmircked by personali
ties, and couched in p.'ain but forcible lan
guage, it stirred up the Democratic
portion of the audience to enthusi
asm, without giving offense to members of
the other parties present. We heed not say
it was listened to with profound attention,
and frequently punctuated with rounds of
applause. As the Judge was compelled to
leave by the 9 :43 train ho had to regulate
his speech accordingly. The impression
left upon the uudience was excellent, and
will not fail to have its effects upon the vote
that will be polled in this city to-day.
Col. E. B. Wutkins, of Mound City, was
present, and was posted for a speech. Go
ing to press at ten o'ebek we could not re
main to hear him. We can say, however,
that he has been doing vHeran work during
the campaign, and is regarded as one of the
most effective stumpers who has shared in
Upon the whole, the meeting was a "good
final rally," and an admirable ending of an
admirably conducted campaign.
