The stranger visiting Cairo will be sur
prised at the extent of our productive indus
tries, if he will take the trouble to pans
through Halliday Rrothcrs', Oaligher's and
tlio other mills along the Ohio levee. It is
by far the busiest portion of our city, and
furnishes a scene of business activity to be
seen in but few of the Ohio river towns,
just alxmt this time.
Wu spoke, yesterday of the funereal,
lugubrious quartette we met, on the corner
of Twelfth and Commercial, consisting of
Captains Hamblclon, McDonald, McKin
ney and Kennedy. Meeting Captain Hani
bleton yesterday, he agreed with us that it
was a sorrowful crowd; "but," ho added,
"the worst of it was we had a "quart-yet"
to take !" As the popular "Sample Rooms"
of Pat Fit were on their route, it is entirely
safe to say that tho prescribed quantity
was religiously taken.
The county commissioners completed
the work of the December term, and ad
journed Thursday evening. Ordinarily the
business of the December term covers a set
tlement with the collector and all the coun
ty officers. As tho collector made his re
port to the September term, most of the la
bor of examination, cop . arisou and verifi
cation was then performed Hence, the
business of the term just concluded was
Scarcely a day passes, or a single hour
of the day, that one may not see from one
to u dozen women and children winding
about nnd under tho freight cars about the
upper T ipot, picking up coal and fragments
of cotton. Ris a matter of surprise that some
of them are not crushed to death every day
or so. The risks they run are so fearful
that it seems to us that our authorities
should step in to protect them. They
should be forced to have a little care for
their safety, worthless as many of them are,
as members of the community.
It is such a marvel to us that we place
the fact on record to amaze future genera
tions, that the cost of dieting our prisoners
in the county jail, since the last day of last
October, amounts to only ten dollars and
fifty cents; that at this time there is only
one man in j.til, and that the indications
are that he will remain without coinpuny
until next circuit courts meets. Unless the
next grand jury grinds out a grist of in
dictments, the term will be signalized be
cause of transacting the least amount of
criminal business ever disposed of at a
single term, since the first term of the court,
The night watchmen of no city in the
country have a less exciting, dryer old time
of it than those ot Cairo. Wednesday night,
no approach toward a theft or disturbance;
no intoxicated person abroad, nut even u
hen roost disturbed. Thursday night, not
a sound was heard, nor a motion made that
required the attention of the police force;
and so for two nights it was a quiet, walk
around a water haul, so to speak, with an
empty police net in the morning. This
condition of things is most gratifying to the
taxpayer and average citizen ; but it is hard,
even exasperating on the reporter of the
The steamer P. T. Hillmao, plying be
tween Cairo and New Madrid, as a regular
packet, deserves all the patronage that our
business men can bestow upon her. Con
signments to New Madrid or intermediate
points should : h"ld for her, let opportu
nities for sending them forwanl otherwise,
be what liny may. A regular packet is a
great want with the people along the route,
and at times answers very pressing necessi
ties of Cairo business men. Let us, then,
give the llillman all the encouragement wo
can. ('apt. Ainbros is a cat eful, obliging
river man, the Hillman is well adapted to
the trade, and a failure to patronize theono
and sustain tho other would reflect some
what, upon the foresight of the communi
ties Hint am interested. The boat will leave
for Xew Madrid to-day.

There doesn't seem to bo much fun in
it certainly there is no apparent necessity
for it, but both boys and girls will persist
in walking the railings of the high side
walks. Seeing a youngstertumble from the
railing of the Poplar street sidewalk, above
Division, yesterday, and hearing the pierc
ing shrieks lie sent up slier hitting the
ground, we expected to find a youngster
broken all to pieces. Rut a sprained wrist,
a f ice and neck badly scratched by tho
stalks of gymson among which he alighted,
constituted his injuries. The value of this
mishap as a warning to other boys, was
shown on the very instant, in the conduct of
three other boys, who mouuted the identical
railing from which the other boy had fallen,
and pranced along it at fearful rate, to bring
tho other boy in disgrace, perhaps, for
tumbling off' and hurting himself.
The car hoist of the Illinois Central
railroad in this city is a great cWspoilerof
the laboring man's rights. It performs la
bor that titty men would fail to perform.
Through its intervention and the help of five
or six men, from fifty to eighty loaded cars
may be hoisted, and a change of trucks un
der them lie effected in twenty-four hours.
To transfer the contents of these cars to
other cars would require the labor of from
forty to fifty men. But in-fore the enthusi
astic communist cries out "down with the
car hoist; bust her!" let him a stop a little
while. The freight in those 50 or 80 ca-s
would not stand the expense of a hand
transfer, and would not, therefore, come
here to be handled. Wherefore, as the men
of the law an wont to say, even the five or
six men w ho now work the car hoist, would
be compelled to look somewhere els? for
One man with scoop in h mil on top of
coal car, another sitting on the railing of
the levee sidewalk, the conversation be
tween them was tlecidely audible, and we
couldn't have closed our curs to it, had we
felt so disposed. Saith the colored Mer
cury with the coal-scoop: "Will Thislle
wihkI beat Jack M inter next spring';"' "No,"
replied the man of leisure, "not by a, d -d
si'ht." "Well," quoth the other, "he's a
better man than Jack; would make a good
mayor, and every body lilies him. If he
isn't elected he ought to bo." "Ah !" hissed
the sidewalk fellow, "good man, the d 1!
What does anybody want a good man for?
If the stui ies his enemies told on Jack Win
ter aiv true, he ought to be in Juliet, lie
lou't go a cussed bit on his goodness; and j
who wants a better mayor than he is? Good
man and good mayor I The thing doesn't
run together. It runs just contrary-wise;
and for that very reason Jack Winter's
qualifications is what 1 consider superior."
The balance of this philosophical passage
was lost amid the rattle of the coal ns it
was hustled into the waiting coal curt.

Mr. Ceorge opened the exercises with
prayer, after a song, in which Walt's voice
led the lingers of the excellent quartette.
Prcsiden P. W. Barclay then spoke a few
words of encouragement, and introduced

Cliamberliii, of Springfield. This gentle
man is a public speaker of ability, and,
although taken by surprise, made a rousing
speech, in which he btartlcd his auditors by
some original suggestions, a rare thing in a
temperance meeting, lie earned applause,
and compelled very earnest cheers. At the
conclusion of Mr. Chamberlin's address, a
song or two was sung, and several persons
took the pledge. During the evening a
letter was read from Dr. Reynolds, in which
that gentleman said he would sism be at
Cairo, and renew the work so auspiciously
begun by him last year.
