Tho E. 8. & L. S. held their meeting at
the residence of Mrs. Hiley, lat evening,
having chauged the programme as to the
place of meeting. It would have been
neighborly in "our neighbor" to have
stated this fact.
It was announced some time ago that
the passenger trains of the Cain) aud Vin
cennes road would stop at Ilarrisburg for
meals, and not at Stonefort, as they have
lone hitherto. The Harriuburg Chronicle
says that Harrisburg "grubs" a few freight
hands; "nary passeugior."
The Murphysboro Era-Illiuoisan says.
We hear Judge Mulkey favorably spoken
of as a candidate for supremo judge. Judge
Mulkey would certainly make au excellent
supreme judc, and his opinions would
command the respect and admiration of the
ablest lawyers of our country."
Tho boys and women who are seen
.gathering up coal ulxjut the coal cats ou the
levee, are not averse to levying occasional
contribution -upon the can themselves. So
very materially have cur loads of coal been
diminished, during the present coal weath
er, that tho owners of tho coul think of set
ting a watch.
The music for the Delta tlanco to-night,
will lie furnished by Messrs. Uoicourt,

The efforts of Messrs. Strode, Pernio
baker and Stewart to establish a Baptist
Sabbath school in Cairo, have been crowned
with a success that can scarcely fail to be
gratifying, as well to tho Baptists of Cairo
as to the gentlemen uamed. Tho school is
an interesting one, and is in a really flour
The yioleU that ventured to show
themselves in the side yard of Mr. aud Mrs.
Walters home, formed a bright, beautiful
spectacle; but the present cold snap has ad
monished them that they were a"loetle" too
forward. There is a moral lesson covered
by this floral experience, by which almost
any of us might profit.
Aa not one white man in 5,000,000 ever
attains the ago of 105 years, and aa a great
many coloied men no reach that age, we
took it for granted, on hearing the facts we
published in connection with the name of
Enoch Raines, that ho was a colored man.
He is a white man, it is said, as well in the
color of his politics find character, as in the
color of his cuticle.
Since the C. & V. company haa already
incurred four-fifths of tho expense, why not
incur the other fifth, and establish a street
railway, ssy from tho company's freight
headquarters on Fourth street, to Twentieth,
and thence along Twentieth to the court
house. It would be a big thing for the
papers to talk about, aud, during court
time, if not at all times, would bo self-sustaining.
Sometime during Tuesday night, a
thief, who had one or more confederates at
hand, effected an entrance into Fred. Tich
nian's tobacco store, and carried away to-
Ijhcco and smoker's goods of tho value of
$25 or $30. It is thought that the sumo
burglars ransacked Ince's gun shop, who
lost goods of about the samo value as those
lost by Tichman. The rascals had not, up
to yesterday evening, been arrested.

Mr. Henry Clav Sexton, chief of the
St. f.'xiis lire department, having been in
viled to deliver a lecture before tho Cairo
l'el'oi in club, has signified a w illingness to
accept the invitation. Although for vears
at the head of a tiro department, where the
temptations to "indulge'' were strong and
numerous, .Mr. Sexton never tasted a dro
a liquor in his life, never took u chew of
tobacco' or smoked a pipe or ciirar. It is
only the fewest of men can say us much
We can't truthfully do it ourselves. The
time for Mr. S. s lecture is not yet fixed.
Miles Parker's restaurant is eligibly
situated, particularly if it be desirable to be
thrown in contact with every trump who
visits Cairo. The mayor's office is next
door to Miles, and as all the tramps call ou
his honor, fully nine-tenths of them avail
themselves of the eligible opportunity pre
sented to do a little in the way of begging.
If it were not utterly impossible to disturb
the equanimity of Miles' temper, we might
expect to be called upon, some of these
3 ays, to describe a large and varied assort
ment of animated kicking.
Only a few days more, and the man
who isashamed if caught carrying home a
beef-steak or n quart of dried beans, will bo
seen as a great moving pyramid of different
sized bundles, hobby-horses, sleighs, dolls,
toy locomotives, drums, trumpets aud jump-ing-jacks,
to say nothing of the sixteen
pound turkey, arm-load of celery, and string
of flopping fish that can't be left behind be
cause "the man" might change Vin on him.''
Thus far St. Nicholas saith truly; but the
addition that such a human puck-mule
"will feel proud and look happy," is an ob
servation that must pass without our in
doi'scuicnt. Wc would impress upon the minds of
our readers, und especially those who are
interested in the maintenance of our Cairo
fire companies, that the grand holiday ball
of the Delta City company, conies off in the
elegant hall of their engine house, this
evening. A large string band has boon em
ployed; the several committees have been
assigned to active duty, and a good time is
a.ssured to all who may participate. An
oyster supp'.-r will be served, so that those
w ho tlo not dance, can drop in, secure a
plate of soup or a dozen raw, at a nominal
price, and thus contribute their mite to help
the Deltas. No company has a stronger
claim upon the support of our citizens. Let
that claim be recognized to-night by a large
Our neighboring exchanges have so
mixed recent ruilroad changes and transac
tions that it is a difficult matter to separate
them. One of them has it that the C, &
V. company has purchased tho Danville d;
I'aducuh road; another that the Wabash
company bus purchased the C. & V., and a
third that the C. & V. has "gobbled in" the
D. aud P. road, with a view of secur
ing a more dirct route to Chicago. It is
our understanding that no sales or trans
fers have taken place; but that negotiations
aro landing between the l'aris, Danville &
Chicago ami the C. & V. companies, where
by the fatter by the construction of a short
line, will open up a new and direct route
between Cairo ami Chicago. How much
truth there is in tho report given out
through a late number of the Vineennes
Sun, that the two companies last named, and
the Yincrnnes and Indiunnimlis com
pany would effect a grand junc-
junction of their roads ut Lawrenceville,
and erect union car shops, hotels, etc., ut
that place, we are unable to say; aud wo
take it that the companies interested don't
caro to tell.
It has, for years, been a matter of sur
prise with observing men, why Cairo has
not been made one of tbo leuding grain
markets in the country. The location of
the place, in the center of tlio best corn
growing country in America, with rivers
and railroads so permeating aud ramifying
that country that every farm is almost
within sight of cheap and ample means of
transportation, the only thing lacking to
build up a grain market here that would
stand second to Chicago only, is the thing
that is most easily supplied, to-wit; plenty
of money. And now, after so long a time,
thu leading men of tho country begin to
open their eyes to Cairo's udvantages in
that respect, and wo are strong in the hope
that something will come of the awakening.
Mr. J. C. Clarke, vice-president of tho Chi
cago, St. Louis and New Orleans railroad
company, is not ignoraut of Cairo's advan
tages as a point for the establishment of a
gr.-at grain market, and, in replying to a
suggestion mado by F. Donohuo & Co., of
Now Orlouus, that Mr. Clarke's railroad
emu nnny establish a great corn market at
connection with n barge lino to
New Orlouus, employs tlio following lan
guage : "There is uow at Cairo an olovator
callable of handling 25,000 bushels daily
from rail to river; this elevator Is in good
running order, and operated by tho Halli
day Bros, I don't suppose there would be
any dilllcully in shipping grain from ('aim
to New Orleans if there was river tonnage
to meet the demands at that point, und tho
parties engaged In tho buying made a mar
ket nt Caiio. There arc but few, if any
farmers who send their grain to Chicago-or
other markets ou their own account, but it
is sold to dealers ut the various railroad
stations from which tho grain is shipped.
If these dealers have their financial arrange
ments with New Orleans' houses, to furnish
them the umoiiut ut money ncccssury to
handle, the grain, I have no doubt a largo
amount of it would probably find its way
to a New Orleans market."
A mass meeting of the Democratic vo
ters of Ballard county was held in Bland
ville, hist Monday, for tho purpose of indi
cating the choice of the Ballard Democra
cy, for thu ollices to be tilled by the election
next slimmer. The meeting declared that
its first and only choice for Governor of
Kentucky, is Dr. Luke P. Blackburn; first
choicoforLieut.Gov. T, II. Corbett; sec
ond choice, II. A. Tyler; first choice for
Auditor, Fuyctt Hewitt, socond choice, J.
P. Mickols; for Supeiinteiidenu of Public
Instructions, Z. P. Smith; for Attorney
General, T. E. Moss; for Register of the
Land Oilice, W. L. Vories; for State Treas
urer, J. W. Tale. Mr. W. M. Coffee was
chairman of the convention, and Mr, W,
W. Jenkins, Secretary. Tho convention
was comjKjsed of good, substantial citizens;
and although the matter is one in which
our Illinois people feel no direct concern,
the expression of preference given wil
considerable weight in tho future
of the Kentucky Democracy.
The Massac Journal is disposed to as
cril)c to the improved tone of Cairo morals
to Republican ascendancy in Cairo, As all
our peace conservators, with a single excep
tion, ure Democrats, the Journal's solution
of the matter, won't do. The gratifying
change is due to the enforced good conduct
of the Republicans. They have been taught
by experience that, before the law, they are
no better than Democrats; and seeing Demo
crats filling the ofiicts of shcriif,
marshal, and coroner, and noting
as constables and policemen, they
kuow that, to a dead moral certainty, if they
olfend, they will be punished. Our former
full jails, and Alexander county's heavy con
tributions to the penitentiary, have taught
them this lesson, ami they are profiting iy
it. It took our Democratic ofhciuls it lung
while to teach the IL-publicitn element this
saluturv truth. But full juils ami striped
;armctiu finally enforced conviction, and
now, in point of good behavior, it is difficult
to tell a Republican from a Democrat.
--Harry Taylor und Dive Harper, two
colored roust-abouts, were arrested by offi
cer Axley and Wilson, yesterday, and taken
before Judge Bird, on a charge of carrying
concealed weaxms. Tbo churge was sus
tained, nnd a line of twenty-Jive dollars
und cost was imposed upon each of them.
Of course, although they were provided
with means to tuke the life of others on the
smallest provocation, or nono at ail, they
were entirely destitute of means to preserve
their own liberty. They were cslaboosed
for '.''J days. (1 Khl citi.'iis will commend
the hiliiction of this punishment, h-urti!y.
Three-fourths of the homicides committed
now-a-days, are chargeable, not so
much to the depraved and
bloody-minded character of our people,
as to tlie circiimstauee tnat one oi the
parties to the trouble huppm to have a
knife or pistol directly at his hand.
Break up this practice; punish every man
found with a weapon concealed alsmt his
person to the full extent of the law, and
the number of homicides that uow so fre
quently appal the people, will ut once be
lessened fully 80 tv.-r cent.
Barton, of the Carlxmdale Free Press,
seems to think a soup house, for the feed
ing of tramps, would be n pretty good
thing, as well in an economic as a humane
view of things, lie is mistaken. It would
serve ns a magnet to draw to Carliondale all
tho tramps within a circle of a hundred
miles; and what a blessing they'd be when
once collected I Wc have urged the policy
of close-fisted niggardliness, in dealing with,
the trump nuisance- no food to healthy
tramps, uud none to any kind whose breath
may Ihi perfumed with whisky; and, al
though the policy has only been partially
adopted, it has had a most salutary effect.
If any considerable portion of the vaga
bonds would accept work when tendered to
them, our charity would be of a broader
kind; but not more than one in twenty-five
will work, at any price. Only a few days
ago, a levee man had work lor fifteen men.
He offered twenty cents an hour, and to test
the disposition of the tramp, ho tried every
one he could find during the day. Ho ad
dressed more than fifty of them. Five out
of six absolutely and pointedly refused the
work; a few pretended that work was just
what they wauted; but at night, ono hour's
work had been performed by one tramp,
uud tho gentleman had more trouble in set
tling for that hour s work than for nil the
work performed by tho balance of his
force. Givo them soup, and you encourage
thu presence of a nuisance, aa ungrateful as
it is generally abominable.
Tiikv say business is dull; sugar aud cof
