Representative colored Odd Fellow
from Loui.siiuiH,.Tcxu8, Florida nnd Misnis-
lippi were entertained by the Egypt Ixlgo.
of this city, at tho house of Mr. Ilerry, on
Wedncsduy evening, in a manner that whs
liberal and fraU-rnul on the pnrt of the en
lertainew, and most complimentary and
gratifying to the parties entertained. The
delegation was en route home from the A.
M. C. E., recently held in Chicugo. Em
braced in the number were two or three of
tho brightest and most widely known col
ored Odd Fellow of the South.
Heretofore, when it was believed that
money wug no object with the managers of
our county ilunnccs, the jail was usually
full of culprits, many of them imprisoned
for trivial offences that should have lieeu
panned iijon by a justice of the peace, and
others upon evidence that failed to convict
when the accused were put on trial. But
now that money is known to be an object of
especial consideration in that quarter, the
jail is, comparatively speaking, empty. The
police of the city and the county constables
have wisely concluded to save the count)'
all risks by putting no man in jail fur petty
offences, who can bo adequately punished
under tho vagrant act, or any of the ordi
nances for the preservation of good order.
Therein the jMilice are right.
We never knew until yesterday, that
before the Hon. J. R. Thomas had warmed
up in his congressional canvass, Justus
Cunningham had met. him, and "pumped
him dry." Before Thomas suspected what
Justus was driving at, Justus had learned
Thomas' plans; wlint issues he intended to
discuss, what strategy he intended to em
ploy, every Republican mantrtiver that had
been decided upon. As was his duty as s
Democrat. Justus gave leading Cairo Dem
ocrats tile broadest kind of intimations that
nc had sliots in his lM'ker that could knock
the Thomas cnn"resMonnl bout clear out of
the political waters. And what did these
leading Cairo Democrats do? Did they
put Mr. Cunningham ou the stump? Did
they make arrangements with him to an
swer Mr. Thomas at every point where he
made a speech in the district? Did Mr.
Linegar and Judge Green avail themselves
of Mr. Cunningham's advice and counsel?
Let the angry thunder of agitated Chim-
Uira.o answer: No, sir! Nothing of the
kind was done, and Allen's defeat tells
story of Democratic delinquency of which
too many leading Democrats of tho district
"ought to feel ashamed of themselves." It
cost our party a humiliating defeat to learn
this lesson, nnd it remains uow to be seen
whether we profit by it.
The elegant ball given on Ixtard the
steamer James Howard, Wednesday night,
in honor of the wife and daughters of Capt,
O'Neil, by the young folks of our city, wus
a most pleasant and reherche affair, and de
serves more than a passing notice. The
beautiful and roomy cabin of the magnifi
cent steamer was brilliantly illuminated at
an early hour in the evening, presenting an
aniicarance grand beyond description.' At
8 o'clock the arrivals became frequent, and
by nine over one hundred couples, the
elite of the city, were gracefully gliding
through the mazes of the merry dance. The
music belonging to the boat, was par excel
lence, and such life and animation bus sel
dom been seen at an entertainment of this
kind in Cairo. Mrs. O'Neil and her daugh
ters. Miss Cora and Mrs. Robinson, of Huston,
mingling here and there among tho gay
throng of visitors with that cuse and graco
which gave evidence of their thorough
knowledge of tho art of pleasing, won
golden opinions, and many were the friends
they made during the evening, whose rec
ollection of their acquaintance will always
remain a source of pleasure. Captain
O'Neal came in for his share of praise, from
the genial manner with which be received
his many guests. The dance lasted until
a late hour, and all left tho Howard with
feelings of regret that tho evening should
have been so short. Among those, present
our reporter noticed, Mr, and Mrs. Fred
Gilbert, Mrs. John II. Obcrly, Mis. Rcilly
and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Fulton,

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 with
tickets, and as the price is only onu dollar
each, tln-y think they ought to sell at least
4(10 or 500. The ball will bo a grand af-
lair, and nolxuly who attends will regret

tho praise of our people; for efficient work in
saving tho property of our citizens; and
now asks for something a little more sub
stantial. Tho ball will bo under tho direc
tion of experienced managers, the best
music to bo obtained will be on hand, and
participants will be Insured a season of
rnro enjoyment. That all may contribute a
little to help a company that deserves so
much, tho tickets have lHen fixed at at a
very low figure. It is the duty or every
householder, at least, to buy one.
