and Mrs. Perry Powers second wife of Per

and Mrs. P. became Mrs. 1!., and Mr. H. the
propriotor of the livery and feed risible, the
business of which he had previously super
vised. The lit i.i.ktin extends good wishes.
Mr. R. Fitzgerald was elected to the
office of Coroner, on Tuesday last, by a very
decided majority. As His principal oppo
nent was the accepted Republican nominee,
and, tn Cairo, at least, received the support
of fully five-sixths of of his party friends,
Mr. F.'s success may be esteemed as a high
personal compliment. The only Republican
nominee that failed to carry the county was
Mr. Fitzgerald's opponent.

Thanks'MviiiL' da v. yesterday, was ob
served by a large number of our citizens.
The services at church called out an audi
ence of respectable size, and a number of
our business men closed their places of busi
ness. Lest some of our distant readers
form the conclusion that we arc taking
time by the forelock in this thanksgiving
business, we feel called upon to say that the
day was observed under the suggestion of
tlie mayor, that our citizens might give ex
pression to their thanks that so many es
caped the deadly epidemic which we can,
now, happily regard ns a terror of the pari.
Whatever shortcomings, omissions or
commissions may be charged to the
account of Sheriff Saup in other respects, it
must be confessed that, as collector of our
revenue, he exorcised considerable dili
gence, and paid over the money to the par
ties authorized to receive it, with a prompt
ness that was highly commendable. The
money due the State and the several school
treasurers of the county, was not permitted
to lie in bank; but was paid over as fast as
collected. School officers and school teach
ers appreciate promptness in that particu
lar, and hence all of them have a gopd word
to say for Collector Saup.
Fred. Koehler & C'o.'s steambout meat
shop isconstantly supplied with the choicest
beef, pork, etc., that are brought to the
Cairo market. Fred's experience of years
has taught him that the very best meats he
can buy are not too good for steamboats
and Cairo hotels. His supply yesterday em
braced six or eight beeves, hogs, sheep,
etc., equal to wry demand that was likely
to be made ujHia him. He has, in his time,
slaughtered more beeves and hogs, calves,
etc., than any man in Southern Illinois, and
it is yet to be said of him that he ever put a
piece of meat upon our market that was not
strictly merchantable. Old Joe Able is so
licitor for and assistant in the establish
ment, mid will do all that any other man
could do to enlarge its business. Joe is
popular among the river men, and is
certain to command a liberal, if not the
lion's share of all the river patronage in his
line, that is bestowed upon Cairo.
Mr. Geo. W. Summons, in whose be
half many of our sovereigns worked with
considerable zeal, last Tuesday, was beaten
for the office of county commissioner, by a
majority of HO or 40 votes. As the returns
cume in he was alternately elated and de
pressed. Over the result in Cairo be felt
bad ; but the returns from Thebes, Goose
Island and Unity put him in good cheer
again. He was !i0 or 40 votes ahead, with
Hazel wood, where he felt sure of a good
vote, to hear from. Hut his expectations
were not realized. Ilazelwood "went back
on him." His majority of UU or 40 was
overcome there, and a like majority piled
up for Rriley ! The blow was a severe one;
and although our sheriff-elect offered to
comfort him, George utterly refused to lie
comforted. Ho was beaten, he said, and
would "enjoy" the humiliation and disap
pointment of his defeat, as much as suited
him. Rut defeated as he is, George is not
crushed. Next yeur ho will be a county
