The darkness, last night, was black
and thick; it wore a deeper hue than whs
ever if i ven to Embus or outer-darkness, or
deeds of Louisiana returning boards. It
was a night of actual, tangible bhieknos.
To set inquiry at rest, wo will say that
the city has done nothing toward utilizing

At as late an hour as 13 o'clock last

and taking up tho trip from Cobden, will
prosecute it to tho end. Ho will return to
Cairo to-morrow or next (lay.
He had been iu Cairo all of twenty
four hours, had had three rights, had given
two of his opponents black eyes and had
graciously taken one in return. In short,
ho had had a "real good time of it;" but
thought the experience would not bear rep

Alderman O'Call alian is renewing his
cinder sidewalk. It is found that this ma
terial makes a hard, compact sidewalk, im
pervious to the rain and fully as durable as
brick. Asit is a much cheaper sidewalk
than wood or brick, it is a cause for surprise
that it luis not been more generally adopted.
Alex. Forthingham & Co., have been
for many years stock brokers and bankers

may be, it was a complete bum up. The

The Episcopal society of this city, oro
maturing arrangement for a course of
cheap lectures. At least one of tho lectures
will be brought from abroad. Bishop Sey
mour will probably be the man. For tho
balance of the lectures the society will draw
on homo talent. The course will consist of
live lectures. They will be delivered in the
Atheneum, and tho price of season tickets,
admitting gentleman and lady, will bo fixed
at the low price of ono dollar and fifty cents.
K. M. K. C initials that are under

"Knights of the Mystic Krew of Comus,"
have decided to repeat their September per
formance, on Christmas night. The pro
gramme will bo enlarged and improved by
the addition of new songs and special feat
ures of a highly amusing character. The
first rehearsal will take place on Monday
night a fact which it is desirable
that those interested should bear in mind.
Mr. F. M. Htockfleth whose sudden ill
ness at Cobden. wo noticed yesterday, re
turned homo by the afternoon train, but so
ill that he was compelled to take his bed,
We regret to add to this, that Mr. S. has
lost the use of his right arm, the limb being
struck by sudden and complete paralysis.
It is sincerely to be hoped that this ufllic
tion is only temporary, and will pass away
with the return of good health otherwise.
Such attacks, however, are, ordinarily, very
dillicult to col. t ml.
The street gang is expending its labor
iu a very sensible manner. As the gang is
not large enough to look after our entire
system of streets, it is bestowing its atten
tiou upon the gutters and crosswalks. With
clean crosswalks, tho mud nuisance will
annoy tho lower order of animals only, and
as they wear no shine on their hoots and
can't swear, the matter is one of no consid
erabln consequence. But reverse matters,
and give us human bipeds tho mud, and
the profanity that will find voice among us
will be appalling.
It was an odd contest that odified tho
boys at the corner of Eighteenth anil Pop
lar, yesterday morning nothing less un
usual than a fight between a small dog and
a tufted owl. The dog wits not at all cow
ardly, but seemed undecided as to what
might follow, If he provoked close quarters
The owl swelled itself to twice its uhiviI
hIzi-, ami stood ut bay, apparently indiffer
ent to Ids assailant's noise, but terribly ex
asperated at lilt motions. Finally the ca
nine belligerent passed beyond tlie goutral
zone, and In a Hash tho strlgidie monster
went ut hiin with a flurry and fury out ot
all keeping with the dog's notion of a fair
"rough und tumble." Evidently thinking
that the alternative of being torn all to
pieces wus to run away, his dogshlp was
glad to embrace it, ami cut out of danger
with strides that would do no discredit to
Several days ago we BHke of the se
rious illness of Hon. T. O. Fanis, the Dem
ocratic member elect of the House of Rep
resentatives from the 51st senatorial district.
Wo hoard yesterday that Mr. Furrss had
died on tho 0th instant, and was buried day
before yesterday. The governor has ordered
an election for January -ith, to fill the va
cancy, and as tho district is a Republican
one, a Republican, of course will bo elected.
If mutters were reversed, the Democrats,
moved by characteristic magnanimity,
would allow the Republicans to choose their
new man without interference. Of course
Wo have received the first number of
the Perry County Democrat, published at
Pinckneyville by Mr. E. C. II. Willoughby,
who is also the editor. We welcome the
Democrat as well because the need of a
Democratic paper in Perry county is there
by supplied, as for the real merit of the
Democrat as u newspaper. Mr. Willoughby
is a forcible writer, an unquestionably
sound Democrat, and in every respect an es
timable gentleman. We feel well assured
that he will furnish the peoplo of Perry
county with a good county paper, and the
Democrats witli an able and reliable mouth
piece. Let his personal and iolitieal friends
now sec to it that the paper is supported.
The following complimentary notice of
Mr. Oberly and Tiik Caiko Bulletin, we
extract from the Jonesboro Gnzette, a paper
edited by a gentleman who is not lavish
with his praise, but always sincere and can
did: "Hon. John II. Oberly has retired from
Tiik Caiiio Bii.i.ktin. Mr. M. B. llarrell
is editor, anal Mr. Burnt" business mana
ger. Mr. Oberly is one of the ablest
editors, and most popular speakers in the
state, and is n citizen of Southern Illinois
of whom we may well be proud. In the
sanctum, or on the forum, he has ever ad
vocated the cause of our Egypt, ami pro
claimed the many advantages of climate,
soil and products, which we possess, und we
shall miss the witty passages of his ready
pen iu the advocacy of this good cause. We
hope that ho will remain with us, and that
we can still claim him as a citizen of
Southern Illinois. Mr. llarrell, the editor-in-chief
of The Bulletin, is well and fav
orably known throughout this portion of
the state, anil is the riyht man for the
place. If the paper does not become popu
lar under his sunervision, Cairo does not
deserve a first-class newspaper."
Quito a number of colored men und
women congregated at 'Squire Comings' of
fice, yesterday, in the expectation that the
majesty of the law, that had been insulted
by ono Billiard Wright, would be vindi
cated, A dav or two before, this man
Wright, who was raised in Cairo, had a
liliht with one John Harris. It seems that
Harris and several other colored men and
women Inn I congregated in an
up stairs room in one ' of the
buildings on Commercial avenue, near
Twelfth street. Hill entered an appearance,
when the tongue of Harris fired divers and
sundry very insulting epithets at him. It
ut once became evident that Harris wanted
to tight. He called Hill a negro bull-dozer
told him he could whip him, and intended
to do so. They were both driven out of the
house, and proceeded to the sidewalk, Har
ris in the lead. Arriving there Harris
seized a shovel und leveled a deadly blow
at Hill's head. The shovel, because of
Hill's expertness as a dodger, missed its
uim, and stuck fast in the sidewalk. Hill
being provided with no shovel, regarded
the contest as an unequal one, and took to
his heels, Harris following. Seeing that
Hill was fleeter of foot than himself, Harris
threw the shovel at the fugitive, with nn in
tent that seemed murderous. It was now
HiU'schance. Gathering the shovel in his
hands, he told Harris that he hud already
run a hundred yards to avoid a fuss with
him, and that he didn't intend to run any
farther. Hurris told him ho was
a d d liar, und again made ut him. Hill
let drive with his shovel, and cut his assail
ant rather severely on the arm; but "tho
villain still pursuing him"-Hill dealt him
another "poult," which, taking effect on tho
head, luid Harris prostrate in tho street.
An attempt on Harris' part to get up, in
vited another blow ; when Harris concluded
that as getting up was rather a dangerous
proceeding, ho would lie still, which he did,
and there tho fight ended. Harris, who
seems to have been tho aggressor all tho
way through, caused a warrant to be issued
for Hill's arrest, and in obedience to tho
command of the writ, he was on hand yes
terday ultornoon for trial. But as Harris
was too badly hurt to attend as a witness,
the trial was postponed until to-day. As
these facts aro obtained chiefly from tho de
fendant in the case, it is barely possible that
they present his sitlo ot tho caso in a man
nor that will not bo fully sustained by the
evidence that will bo drawn out on the trial.

NO COUNCIL MEETING LAST NIGHT.
A KKW HKMaIIKS oh dklinquency and
OTI1KII SI' IU KITS.
About 8 o'clock, yesterday evening, we
repaired to the council chamber, and found
aldermen Halliday, Wood, Lancaster und
RittciihoiiKc, clerk Phillis and . marshal
Alter awaiting the iinivul of two more
coum ilmen, six being necessary to form n
quorum. In tho exchange of retorts, cour
teous and chaste stories with pointed morals,
the persons named passed a half hour, when
alderman Thistlcwood put iu un appearance.
At this juncture marshal Arter suggested
that he could pull in a delinquent or two,
and complete a quorum. Upon this mis
sion he left the room. As, ufter the lapse
of ten minutes more no delinquent ap
peared, the members present effected an ad
journment until Tuesday evening next, at
half pust 7 o'clock.
The attempt last night, was the second
that has been made within the past two
weeks, to get the council together. It is
true that there was no business of a pressing
nature in hand; but as none of tho absentees
could know this fact, they cannot interpose
it us an excuse for their non-attendance. It
was the duty of every man ot them to be on
hand, and tho public Bhould keep a careful
record of every delinquency of this nature.
The city is too lurgc, its interests too varied
und important to permit of such indiffer
ence as lias been shown during the past two
months, by nearly or quite one half of the
entire board of aldermen. Members who
cannot, or members who w ill not attend the
meetings, owe it to the city to resign their
places, that they may be filled by men who
can and will give to the position the time
and attention it requires.
Looking over the papers that would have
been presented to the council had a quorum
been present, we found among other busi
ness matured for the occasion :
Sundry claims against the city, laid over
under the rules at the meeting in Novem
ber, that the Finance committee might ex
amine them. This duty the committee had
performed, recommending the payment of
most of the claims in full; hut "razeeing"
a few of them, most fearfully.
Also report from the comptroller and
street supervisor, the leading features of
which have already been published in Tiih
Also a petition signed by seven principal
fishermen of the neighborhood, praying the
council to enact an ordinance requiring all
peddlers of fish to obtain a license; or in
the event of their neglect or refusal to do so,
to adequately punish them.
The ordinance committee reported an or
dinance in compliance with this petition,
providing thut all peddlers of books, maps,
charts, bread, fruits, fish, chickens, etc., may
be licensed on the payment of five dollars a
year. This ordinance would not apply,
however, farmers selling produce, gardeners
selling their vegetables, berries, etc., nor to
the sale of newspapers.
At the November meeting of the council
a resolution was adopted on motion of Col.
Wood, directing the ordinance committee
to report nn ordinance providing for the
substitution of a physician of the city as
health officer, inspector of meats, vegetables,
etc., in place of a police constable. Also to
report an ordinamie to compel the removal
of excrescence from privy vaults to Hiints
so distant from the city as not to imperil
the public health. The object of the lust
named ordinance being to prevent the prac
tice of covering tlie contents of full vaults
beneath the surface of the ground a prac
tice which, if continued for a number of
years, would undoubtedly cause much sick
ness, if it did not breed epidemics.
The passage of ' these ordinances, final
action on the claims, and reports presented,
etc., would have for.ned the business of the
evening, had there been a quorum present.
Mii.MNKKY. Mrs. S. Williamson does
not. intend to be undersold. She invites at
tention to the following prices on hats, nnd
assures her friends and customers that they
tiro lower than the same goods can be pur

Tiik old Rough and Ready tire company
the company that hns earned the cogno
men of the "old reliable," will givo a New
Year's Eve Rail, which they reasonably
hope everyUsly will encourage, and a grc.it
many attend. Like other organizations of
its kind in Cairo, it is compelled to "nn
itself," and that thing can't Im done very
successfully without the encouragement of
the pi-oplc. The committee of liiiuiu r
will, therefore, wait upon our citizens witli
tickets, and as the price is only one dolhir
itch, they think they ought to sell at let
400 or 500. Tho ball will U; a grsnd ai-
fair, and nobody who attends will rer U
his small investment.

the Delta City fire company will give a I ill
in the hail of their engine house, with i
view of replenishing their somewhat de- J
pleted treasury. The company has wn j
the praise of our people for efficient work in I
saving tho property of our citizens; v.l
now asks for something a little more su'i- f
stantinl. The bill will be under the diree- i
tion of experienced managers, the be-t J
music to bo obtained will be on hand, sii't
participants will m insured a season of
rare enjoyment. That all may contribute -i
little to help a company that deserve i
much, the tickets have been fixed at at v
very low figure. It is tha duty or ey. ry
householder, at least, to buy one.
