Members of the Cairo Tax-payers'
association should bear in mind that tho
regular monthly meeting of the association
will be held in 'sepiire Comings' oIlleethiH
evening, commencing at 7 o'clock.
The City ot Cairo, or rather its public
buildings and better class of private resi
dences, will be illustrated in the February
number of the St. Iritis Magazine. Mr.
Ilcnton, who has been canvassing the city
with that view, has met unexpected and
most gratifying sucsesa. Ho expresses tho
opinion that the sale uf his illustrated num
ber among our citizens, will reach 12,000 or
Carl Peters and brother propose starting
an extensive poultry yard or hennery, on Syc
nmorp near Thirty-fourth street. The ob
ject will be to raiso chickens, provoke hens
into the laying of numerous eggs and to
supply our citizens with eatable chickens,
and eggs of unquestioned freshness. A
delivery wagon will be put on the road as
soon ns the hennery commences yielding a
surplus of eggs and chickens.
Every male inhabitant of Alexander
county, not excepted by tho fortunate cir
cumstance that ho lives within the corporate
limits of Cairo, or by the less fortunate cir
cumstance of his being fifty years of age,
will bo required to perform live days labor
on the public roads of the county, during
the year 1870, or render to the supervisor
of his district, u just and fair equivalent in
money. The lalwr must bo performed
within the district where tho liable party
resides, and under the direction of that im
perious autocrat, known ns a supervisor.
Among other proceedings had before
the county board, yesterday, were the fol
lowing. Petition of Jacob Cotner, asking
for privilege to open a private wagon road,
without expense to the county, granted.

the line of the Ullin and Cupe Girardeau
road, ordered to be made under supervision
of commissioner Drow n. J. II. Muleahey,
Xick lluusakor and John II. Foster appoint
ed to view route of a new road commenc
ing at or near H 'nnnick's old farm in Lake
Millig'an precinct, and running thence
along the Mississippi river to n point at or
near the farm of Andrew Nan, on the Cairo
ami Thebes road, made their report, to
which John II. Walker objected, in this,
that while he was willing that the road
should be opened through his land, without
cost to the county, to the width of thirty
feet, he was unwilling to surrender 6(1 feet
on any conditions. The hoard concluding
that such a modification would not interfere
with the utility of the new road, and that
the acceptance of Mr. Walker's oifcr would
be to the advantage of the county in an
economic view, thu modification was con
sented to, and the supervisor of the district
Wits ordered to proceed with due dis
patch and open the road as viewed and
modified The entire day, of the
4 tli instant, was consumed by the
board 111 examining the reports of
supervisors of county roads. Upon
opening the bids 011 tile for publishing the
proceedings of the board, and such adver
tisements as might be ordered by it, it was
found that bids had been received from .1.
H.Oberlyfc Co., of Tiik Wkkki.y lU i.
i.ktix, and II. F. Potter, of the Argus
Journal. The bid of Tin: Dci.i.kti.n being
held as the lowest and best, the contract
for the year ending December tf 1st, l'STO,
was awarded to that paper; and the chair
man of the board and county clerk were
directed to execute tl'.e contract. '
The oyster supper, or more properly
speaking, the supper with oysters, that was
spread in the llcforin club reading-room,
last night, by the ladies of thu M. E.
church, presented such a tempting abun
dance, that w e are nl most surprised that the
impecunious hungry people of the city, did
not organize and take possession of it.
There were six tables spread, and all of
them presented a glitter of burnished knives
and forks, snow white cloths and table
ware, that rendered the edibles they con
tained irresistably persuasive to everybody
who had not already eaten to satiety. Tho
ladies excelled themselves in this affair, and
it will bo sometime, we predict, before an
other supper of such a varied com
position, and so tastefully spread, will
tempt our people to excess in eating
There were turkey, chicken, ham, sliced
roast beef, veal, chicken salad. :old slaugli,

The sets of photographic views of the
Southern Insane Asylum, recently taken by
the Cairo artist, Mr. William Winter, are

The little pepper-cruet of a boy that
rasped the violinccllo aliout our streets yes
terday, in accompaniment to a fiddle vigor
ously jerked by a dirty-shirted stranger,
was regarded as a prodigy. He was the
smallest musician we ever saw wni, in
fact, not much larger than a ten-pin, and,
if more than four years old, he was a dwarf.
To some of the boys who trooped after him,
he was a curiosity, a musical prodigy; to

Rare architectural taste and decorative
skill are being expended upon tho front of
Dr. P. G. Schuh's new drug store. Hut
handsome and attractive as tho exterior of
tho building is, it will not equal the in
terior, after Dr. Schuh has displayed his
handiwork in tho arrangement of stock,
show and shelf goods, etc. Wo huzard
nothing in claiming for it in advance tho
distinction of being the handsomest drug
establishment in tho State of Illinois.
Capt. Kennedy, the Illinois Central
railroad's master of road and bridge work,
expected to leave for Chicago by tho after
noon's train yesterday, having brought his
work in this vicinity so near the point of
completion as not to need his further super
vision. If ho didn't get off he was kept
beyond time by thu interminable yarns that
were bring spun to him by his companions
yesterday, just before the train slatted. Of
course the "companions' w to innocent of
any i-t iU'osKin elongating their stories, be
yond a desire to "treat the stranger well."
We are glad to hear that Mrs. Pierson,

'o get either way or any other way. Ho

rigid during the prevalence of tho yellow
fever, as wuro tho picket lines of either

den and mysterious disappearance of a
married man of this city, named P. II.
Nelson, nnd the alarm and suspense of his
w ife in consequence thereof. Nothing lias
been heard from him since, and one of two
conclusions is now Anavoidable. The man
lias either abandoned his family, which lib
wife thinks altogether improbable, or he
has by accideut or by some summary meth

warded to this office, concerning 1 1 i in, will
be thankfully received and communicated

The public, and especially the female
portion of it, should not forget to remember
that Dan Hartman's new toy emporium will
be open for inspection, on Saturday morn
ing, and, in order that everylMuly may be
afforded an opportunity to see the prepara
tion he has made for the demands of the
holidays, the house will be kept open till
midnight. A look through the establish
ment yesterday, assured us that he will be
able to accommodate every call that is
likely to be made on him. With the walls
of the large building lined with handsome
ciiromos, ot almost every conceivable sub
jectjtlie center and sides of the room piled
high with wagons, sleighs, sleds, wheelbar
rows, velocipedes, hobby-horses rockers,
toy furniture, etc., and the counters heaped
with miniature figures of men, boys, babies,
birds, beasts, steamboats, engines, cars; and
toys new, novel, ingenious and wonderful ;
seeing all these things we wondered where
they would go what Hartman would do
with them! Sue li a display of toys such
provision for the holiday trade, was never
before made in Southern Illinois, and this
will be the verdict of all. Call around to-morrow
and inspect the e.tablishnient Ward
hit's building, adjoining the Athem urn.
The co'Imoii by which tho steamer
Cotton Valley was sent to the bottom of the
Mississippi, and twenty souls hurried into
eternity, coming us it does, close upon the
heels of terrible wean disasters, excites
afresh the inquiry, cannot somktiiino be
done to add to the security of our river and
ocean travel? In this latter case, two steam
boats come sweeping at full speed around a
point. The rain and gloom of the early
morning obscure thu view, and before the
pilot of one boat has recover ;d from his
shiN-k of surprise at the close proximity of
the other boat, there is a crash of timbers,
the death .shrieks of drowning men, women
and children, one of the boats goes to
the bottom, and twenty of her passengers
and crew sink, to rise no more, beneath the
waters of the Mississippi. It was in round
ing a point, too, that the Princess Alice
was struck in the river Thames, not long
ago, with a loss of life that appalled all en
lightened humanity. Hut it was in a clear
sea, miles from the shore, that the Poiner
ania was struck, and, with her forty or fifty
human beings, went to the bottom. And
thus it goes. Disaster follows disaster, nnd
yet no means for increased security of life, is
thought of. Uueeusing vigilance, a con
stant scrutinizing watch upon the part of
the masters, is certainly lacking; and, let
the laws bo what they may, until the men in
command, increase their watchfulness, un
til they adopt all possible precoutions
against danger, it will bu idle even to hope
that we have an cud of these horrible, life
dest roy i ng occu rrences.

feel they have have given all they can give
at present; while those who have not given
have not done so simply because they do
not feel justified in giving for any purpose,
whatever. As to the ladies, themselves,
they have all they can attend to now. in the
way of societies, tcnix ranee unions, etc.
And, besides, of themselves they have no
money; so it is useless to think of a testi
monial of any value, such as would be suit
able for our nt'iyor. being gotten up among
themselves, liiiich ss it would gratify them
to contribute for such a purpose. Money
in any shap.' is only money after all, and
not a thing any man in Mayor Winter's sta
tion of life is at all likely to be best pleased
to receive at the bauds of his friends. He
is not in present need, nor is v. likely to be
in need, at all, at any time. If he should
be so unfortunate in the future, a better
way to show a proper appreciation of his
otlicial services as mayor of our city, and
general guardian of our city's good, would
be to increase his salary to a fair p-iying
basis. lie could not feci humiliiiled by

the company thai has earned the cogno
men of the "old reliable," will give a New
Year's Eve Hall, which tiny reasonably
hope everybody will encourage, and a great
many attend. Like other organizations of
its kind in Cairo, it is compelled to "run
itself," and that thing can't be done very
successfully without the encouragement of
the people. The committee of managers
will, therefore, wait upon our citizens w ith
tickets, and as the price is only one dollar
each, they think they ought to sell at least
400 or 500. Tho ball will bu a grand af
fair, and nolxxly who attends w ill regret
his small investment.
CiTizicNS of Cairo should bear in mind
that on the 18th day of tho present month
the Delta City tire company will give a ball
in the hall of their engine house, with a
view of replenishing their somewhat de
pleted treasury. The company has won
the praise of our people for cJllcicnl work in
saving tho property of our citizens; nnd
now asks for something a little more sub
stantial. The ball will bu under the direc
tion of experienced managers, the best
music to bu obtained will be on hand, and
participants will be insured a season of
rare enjoyment. That all may contribute a
littlu to help a company that deserves so
much, the tickets have been fixed at at a
very low figure. It is thu duly or every
