It seems characteristic of a blacksmith
to insi-t upon painting his own sign. Iu
answer to a question iu that connection,
ycvterdiiy, one of them urged upon us the
fact tlmt "they always had the brushes, the

only reason "why not" that wo think of any

John Sullivan was taken before Judge '
Bird. veMtcrdav. to answer a charge of
drunkenness. Failing to fix the responsi
bility for his limlxrness, upon any other
cau.se, it was concluded that whisky was to
blame, and John was fined one dollar and
the official perquisites. Having the re
quired shekels about his wearing apparel,
he liquidated, and "breathed the free air of
heaven again," aud so forth.

A reader of Thk Bli.i.etix, and, as a,

two river men can be found who agree pre-
cisely respecting the same plan, he will, he
siiys, modify his opinion; but while there
remains great diversity of opinion among
them, he would rather trust such improve

The panic that precipitated the exodus
of our people, last September, nibbed a
number of them of their usual discretion
and common sense; but we heard of no in
stance of hiHto and forgetfulness that
equaled a case furnished by Union City. A
well known and respectable family of that
burg, flcdjin violent hasto after the death of
the first victim. Tumbling a cooking stove,
a few pots, some bedding and provisions
into a wagon, they hurried out at break
neck speed in the direction of Paducah;
and not until they had made about twelve
miles of the distance, did they discover that
they had forgotten the baby ! Detaching a
horse from the wagon, the husband rivaled
the famous ride of Mr. O'Shanter, until he
reached his home. He found the baby all
right, and a calf in the room very Intent

"He called forhis lssits. And wanted to

A stranger in the city, named John
Boyle, was brought before Judge Bird, yes
terday evening, charged with an attempt to
engage a companion in a bout at fisticuffs.
The affair hapiwned under the eye of offi
cer Hogan, who promptly .irrested him.
Boyle entered a very emphatic denial, de
clared that the officer had "pulled" the
wrong man. and that he was innocent of
offence as unuuWn babe. Being consid
ered an interested party, his denial was
given but little Weight, and he went to jail
tor seven days in default of payment of a
fine of five dollars and c1s of the trial.
A local notice, published elsewhere,
tives the details of the Reform Club ball, to
be held next Tuesday evening. The gentle
men having the arrangement of prelimin
aries in bund, assure us that it is their
pur(sse to render the affair ail occasion that
everylssly, old and young, can visit with
pleasure and profit. The price of admisjion
is fixed at $1.00, ami iqsm that dollar ticket
the holder can take a whole regiment of
females, if he can persuade that many to
accompany him. But go.' There will be
no lack of ladies, or gentlemen, or anything
else that can add to the success and enjoy,

Few cities in the west are supplied
with more wide-awake or enterprising

time Messrs. Koeldcr & Brother are devot
ing their especial attention to the steam
Isiat trade, and of their ability to supply
any and every demand for fresh meats
from that quarter, no one w ho has visited
their levee establishment, can entertain any
doubt. They kill the finest cattle they can
buy ; ami in order to s:-cure the best they

About noon, yesterday, we espied an
individual dressed in the garb of a labor
ing man, sitting on the inner edge of the
sidewalk, between 12th and 14th streets,
sound asleep. Although it was fully seven
teen feet to the ground below, there he sat
nodding, snatching himself back to a cen
tral equipoise when it seemed certain that
he could not recover himself, but would
pitch head-long to the ground, and des
truction. Charitably inclined to ave the
county the expense of a coroner's iii(Ust,
we aroused the nodding chap, and got
soundly abused for our humanity. "He
would thank me," he said, "to attend tomy
own business. He knew what he was about
he was no galoot he was breaking no
laws, he hoped, and asked no odds of no
Issly." We left him, with the barest sus
picion of a hope in our breast that he
he would take the tumble from which we
had striven to rescue him.
The body of the little negro girl, of
whose horrible death we gave an account in
yesterday's paper, was taken to the seven
mile graveyard for burial, about two o'clock
yeskrday afternoon. The mother of the
child declares that there was no fire in the
house when she left it; but this statement
is not borne out by the facts. When the
doors were bursted open, there was a full,
roaring fire in the stove that could not have
been kindled by the child. All her conjec
tures that the building was set on fire, are
th( merest nonsense, as the building was
not even scorched outside of the room
where the little girl perished. For the
space of fifteen minutes or more, the cries
of the little sufferer were heard by several
children playing on the ground not twenty
five feet away; but as outcries from colored
children can be heard at any time in any
part of the city, the agonizing calls of the
little creature fell upofi dull ears, and

attentive, sympathetic and fearless; ami
concerning every case he was called upon
to diagnose, he spoke openly and honestly,
and, as time usually demonstrated, truly.
His fellow citizens appreciating his good
work, presented to him, last night, a mag
nificent gold medal, upon which was the fol
lowing inscription : "Presented to Dr. J. J.
Gordon by the citizens of Cairo for his
faithful, generous and fearless services dur
ing the yellow fever." The medal, which

expected or desired that any citizen would

THE LATE MISICAL EXTKRTAIX
The opening event of the social season,
the musical entertainment given by Miss
Anna P. Alvord, at the residence of her pa
rents Prof, and Mrs. G. (i. Alvord, on
Thursday evening, was one of the most de
lightful gatherings enjoyed by Cairo pen
pie for many months. The very best mu
sical talent of the city took part in the fine
programme, and great credit was i llet ted
upon Miss Alvord by the high t,ne of the
selections, and her untiring and entirely
successful efforts in making the
evening one of genuine enjoyment
to all lovers of that divine art, which rightly
understood and truly appreciated "refines,
enobles, and, purities mankind." The
exercises w-ere opened by a tine instrumental
solo by Miss Alvord, whose brilliant and
forcible execution is remarkable in a lady,
and one so young, and gives evidence of
careful training and eiithuiatie study. A
vocal duet, "German Song." by Mrs. W.
P. Halliday and Miss Alvord. was beauti
fully rendered both in music and language,
while the famous "Flower Song" from
Faikst. was given by Mrs. J. M. Laiisden.
in that lady's inimitable manner, her highly
trained voice, always affording great en
joyment to ler many friends. A
vocal solo by Miss Pitcher, 'Storm
and Sunshine," by Buck, was one of
the finest peices of the evening, Miss Pitch
er's sweet voice and great precisio.i having
lost none of its charms, and the accompani
ment played by Miss Alvord. being unusu
ally line. "When tiie Tid" Conies In,"
Millard by Mr. J. Aisthorpe, ami a finely
executed instrumental duet "Galop de Con
cert." by Mrs. II. L. Halliday and Miss
Alvord, rec-ived cnthiishiMie applause,
while a vocal solo, "To Sevilla" Dessatire,
given by Miss Alvord, evinced the
careful training of her powerful voice, us
well as the skillful fingers. The exquisite
solo of Millard's "For You" was admirably
given by Miss W. P. Wright, whose faith
ful study and marked advance is a great
source of pleasure to her friends, and was
followed by "The Owl," a solo by Thomas,
given as only Mr. W. H. Morris can give
such a selection, Mr. Morris, possessing one
of the finest basso voices in the country,
coupled with a remarkable skill in portray
ing the humorous, evinced in his famous
"Deutsch Song," given as an encore in his
happiest style. "Dost thou know that
sweet landf Mignon; beautifully ren
dered by Mrs. Lansden, followed by a fine
instrumental solo by Miss Alvord, brought
the programme to the closing number, a
charming solo, " Remember or Forget," by
Mrs. W. P. Halliday, whose rich voice, and
clear and perfect pronunciation cannot be
excelled, and place her in the first
rank among the many fine singers
of the state. That the efforts of Miss
Alvord and her parents, and the
kimtty and valuable assistance of those
who took part, were fully appreciated by
the cultivated and brilliant company as
sembled, was demonstrated by the keen ap
preciation and hearty applause which
greeted the programme. It is hoped that
this auspicious beginning will lead to many
similar occasions, as profitable ami plens
anr, during the season. Among those pres
ent were: Mr. W. P. Halliday, Rev. B. Y.
