A contract for a-rving as physician to
the county poor house, and for services as
overseer of the poor, lor the coming year,
was concluded yesterday, with Dr. Gibbs,
of Thebes. The price to 1 paid i $200.
The doctor has filled the position as physi

has, we hear, given entire satisfaction.
In an inquiry pending before United
States Commissioner Candee, yesterday,
Judge Crawford swore that his name is
Monroe C. Crawford, that he is a lawyer by

age. The Judgu has heretofore concealed
his age, but now stands revealed as the
oldest young man in Southern Illinois.
Probate court, Judge Vocum presiding,
was in session yesterday, dispatching bus

News was received by Mr. lleim, quite
recently, that Fred. Theobald, for many

his friends here will be much surprised on
receiving intelligence that he has died by
his own hand.
The grand opening of Dan. Ilartman's

Since the adoption ot a system of rigid
economy in the management of our county
ufl'.tirs, there is n noticeable change in the
expenses of our circuit court. With the co
operation of Judge Ilarker, many hundreds
of dollars may be saved annually. The
outlay on account of bailiffs, Ht tlio Sep
tember term, was only $18. It wns a short
term: but ordinarily the outlay has exceed
ed that amount several hundred per cent.
Evidence was yesterday taken before
United Stat"s Commissioner Candee in the
case of the trustees of the Cairo city prop
erty against the Cairo and Ht. Ijuis rail
road company, action of ejectment now
pending in the circuit court of the United
States, for the southern district of Illinois.
.Mr. Win. R. Gilbert, of Green & Gilbert,
represented tho trustees, und Mr. S. P.
Wheeler, the company. Messrs. William
Hawkins, S. S. Taylor, M. C. Crawford and
F. Iiross were examined.
If the shameless, vulgar-minded man
or boy who covered tho west side Washing
ton avenue sidewalk with foul and nasty
sentences, yesterday, can be caught, it will
serve him right to start him from the St.
Charles hotel, and kick him to the upper
limits of the city, and beyond that as long
as kicking is a punishment to him. If it
was a man who did it, he is a beast, in the
lowest and meanest signitieation of the
uord. If it was a loy, his mind is debased
beyond purification he is an irreclaimable
Everybody iu Cairo, three or four years
ago, knew Fred. Theobuld, the barber. He
wus a good looking and very intelligent
man, and handled a razor with the hand
of a muster. He would fit up fine shops,
make money, build houses, talk and pros
per, and then dissipate his menus, raise
commotions, leave the city, and como back
ngain to go around the circle again. Al
omi time ho whs a Cairo alderman, and
filled the olllce with not a little credit to
himself. Several years ugo he left (.'aim,
nnd became a wanderer. Uu went from
placo to place, until at IIiIlsloro, Ohio, on
the morning of the 1st Inst., ho died a Mil
tide. On tho day before his death, ho bade
several of his friends good-byo, and invited
them to his funeral. They regarded the in
vitation us tho idle talk of A drunken mini;
but Fred, was in earnest, and that night
took a dose of morphine that ended his
earthly existence. .

T. V. Rtmton, editor of the Joncsboro
Gazette, was in Cairo yesterday, and paid
Tuk Rcm.ktin office a friendly visit. Mr.
Ronton publishes the best county paper that
reached our exchange table. Its local de
partment embraces the accidents, incidents
und happenings of all the towns in Union
county, up to the day of publication, and is
thus rendered a necessity to every intelli
gent family in the county. The Gazette is,
furthermore, the oldest paper, excepting
one, in Southern Illinois.
The Roard of County Commissioners
made very favorable headway yesterday,
dispatching a large amount of business of
the usual routine order. Sundry reports
were examined, claims passed uon, and
the bttsiuessof the term so far advanced as
to render n adjournment this evening quite
probable. Verbal notice was given to the
proprietors of the different Cairo papers to
bid for the county prin'ing for the coming
year, The Riu.rm's contract expiring

Alsiut ten days ago, one William Ayr?s,
of Santa Fe, was committed to our couity

The opinion is quite general that four !
years service in the circuit or county clerk s
office,' ought to make the incumbent rich;
but the reports on record fail to confirm
such an opinion. The allowance to the cir
cuit clerk and his deputy is only $1,920 per
annum, and this amount is payable only
out of the earnings of the office. There
port of the clerk, submitted to the Roard
of Commissioners yesterday, showed that
all the cash received fell flOU short of the
allowance. If this deficiency is never col
lected by the clerk it will never be paid.
In other words, the office is made self-sustaining.
The thrift and improved morals of tho
people have a marked effect in lessening
our county expenditures. Six or eight years
ago the bills for dieting our prisoners ran
up from $800 to $1,200 per quarter, while
the expenditures on account of paupers and
poor persons amounted to $4,000 or $5,000
per annum. The tetter times and im
proved morals of our people have wrought
a change that is us gratifying as it is wonder
ful. The pauper bills have been reduced
nearly or quite one-half, and what the
charges for dieting confined criminals
umount to, is indicated by the following
For the month of September $55 50
For the month of Oetolier 15 50
For the month of November 10 50
For the three months . . .$81 50
A like favorable showing can be made by
no county of like population in the North
west; and, taking the peculiar geographical
position of Cairo into account, the result is
quite as surprising us it is gratifying.

T.vo copies of Til p. Wf.kki.y Rcm.ktin
having been, through some inadvertance in
our mailing department, sent to un Ohio
subscriber who doesn't care to read more
than one num1cr of the same issue, he or
dered one copy sloped. The same thing
happened some time ago, and in reply to a
somewhat profane, butgHd natured request
to hold off half of the supply, Mr. Nally
addressed the subscriber the following
humorous letter: ".My Dear Mr. H.
Yours of the 15th ut hand.
Tke necessity for sending you two copies
ofTnK 1)i'm.ktin is very forcibly illustra
ted by the contents of your letter. The
Bi i.i.ktix is, alxivc and In-yond all things,
h great religious and moral teacher. Oue
of its peculiar missions is to point out, pur
tcularly to aged and hardened sinners, the
rue and straight path which makes life
tolerable here bolow and glorious in the
'ealms beyond the grave. For an ordinary
tinner the prescribed ivobe is one copy of
.he paper; but for those who see the wick
dness of their evil courses, and perversely
nd stubbornly refuse to repent, we always
louble the dose, with instructions always
to be "well shaken before taken." Where
fore your request will pass unheeded. The
extra copy will not be stopped."
The same subscriler, referring to the capac
ity of a Cairo candidate for a re.-jsinsible
official position, observe that "Mr.
is qualified like h 1 for the office to which
he aspires." Mr. Nally answered: "You
say Mr. is qualified like h- -1 for the
office for which he has aspirations. Reing
entirely ignoraut of the nature or force of
your comparison, Tuk Rcm.ktin torbeurs
expressing un opinion on it. The people of
Cairo, however, elected him to that position
by a very decided majority, show ing, as
j-ou will no doubt say, what a d fool the
decided majority of Cuiro is, tor differing
with a certain good-natured well-meaning
gentleman with whom you are doubtless on
the best of terms, for whose opinion you
would doubtless dofT your hat, und whose
present post office address is Clcves, Ohio."
