Marshal Arter camo ai'ross one Thom
as Sweeney, while Thomas was "acting up

prehensible, having been incited thereto, by
deep potations of maddening wh'sky. But
for the timely appearance of the Marshal
it is altogether likely that Mr. Sweeney
would have had the offence of lighting ad
ded to his "drunk and disorderly," and
been mulcted in the sum of $20 instead of
theif'J and costs, for which he is now eat

The Springfield dispatch to the Chi
cago Tribune, that named Judge J. J. Bird,

Northern Illinois, the Republican press of
Southern Illinois knows and has the honesty

From convers:.t ions yesterday with sun
dry well informed citizens, we were
forced to conclude that the Cairo post
office question is not as nearly settled as
we supposed it to be. The circle of prob
able postmasters will have to be enlarged a
little, enough, at all events, to include Mr.
Hughes, whose friends assiiru us that no
thing has occurred to render his appoint
ment any less probable than it was a week
ago. The information we made public
yesterday, came from very good authority,
however, and may, for aught we yet know
to the contrary, give the case precisely us it
stands. A few days will decide the matter,
and then, in so far as the post-office em
broglio is concerned, vtc can take a rest.
The manner in which he deported him
self on nnd nliout the McComb, told us yes
terday, ut a distance of a hundred yards,
that Captain McKinney was the father of a
new boy. His deportment told us all about
it, except the weight, which we afterwards
ascertained was eleven pounds. As is
usually the cuse, tho youngster arrived
when the mother was not altogether well;
but that lack of consideration on his part is
in a measure excused by his natural and in
alienable rights, etc. He dates his age
from Tuesday night, and being an unusual
ly promising little 1'elh.w, Tiik Bulletin
takes it upon itself to name him II. 8. Mc
Comb McKinney. If ho can stand all that
name, the ordinary cares of life will bo but
as a feather's weight to him.
The Delta's were happy, Inst night, or
should have been. Their splendid hall,
made light as day with numerous gas jets,
was a scene of gaiety and enjoyment rarely
seen in Cairo. The crowd was late getting
together; but there was no lack of good
will and pleasant pastime after it did as
semble. The lower floor was devoted to
the supper arrangements. Well spread
tables were set out, and provided with need
ful appliances for twenty couple at a sit
ting. Oyster soup, hot coffee, celery nnd
ill the relishes that render
a plate of oysteis Irresistable, were provi
ded; and we need not say that this tempt
ing provision was not slighted. The music
was fine, really artistic, tmd those who did
not dance, were repaid for the expense
ami trouble Incurred, by the really choice
music. As to the financial outcome of the
reunion, wo can say nothing; but this we
can say, that the participants Included
uiany of our best cltlzenn, mid the ball was
an occasion of entire respcc'abillty. In
fact it may always be takon for grauled,
when the Deltas announce a ball, that the
affair will be one that our most high-toned
and aristocratic ladies aud gentlemen may
attend without the least fear of encounter
ing any but persons whom they would
gladly recognize anywhere. Of precisely
that kind of mat 'rial was the crowd last
Buffalo fish, twenty boxes of them, and
each box containing at least live hundred
pounds of fish. That's what we saw at the
Stone depot yesterday afternoon. They
were shipped by William Sickney & Co.,
Gayoso, Missouri, nnd consigned to.1. W.
Peters & Co., St. Louis, Mo. The Grand
Tower was the original carrier; but she
being compelled to halt at this "head of
uninterrupted navigation," they were for
warded to their destination via Illinois
Central. While contemplating this im
mense preparation for "next Friday," a
box-bed wagon drove up, piled high and
heaped up w ith dead and frozen w ild ducks.
There were ducks of as many kinds as ever
Pat Kelly saw, which is equivalent to sav
ing a sample of all the species known to
ornithologists. These thousand or moie
assorted ducks were shipped by the fish
firm and were consigned to John E. Ilag
gerty i Co., St. Louis.
We regret to learn (and our regret w ill
lie shared by one hundred thousand people)
that Joseph G. Cormick. Esq., is no longer
a passenger conductor between Centralia
and Cuiro.apost he has filled for more than
twenty years. No man in Southern Illinois
has more acquaintances than Joe Cormick,
and when we say that in that vast number
of men, men and children, we do not be
lieve he has a single enemy, the few outside
people who don't know him, can judge
what manner of man he is. Warm hearted,
uiiselli.h, obliging, of most equable temper
and amiable disposition, it is impossible to
know him and not like him. Indeed, if
such a thing can be, Joe has too insny
friends scores and hundreds who don't de
serve the friendship of so good a man. His
retirement from service will be deeply re
gretted by all the old patrons of the road;
ami could their, voice control, he would be
in his old place ngain the very moment that
he "gets good nnd ready."
The Reform club ball, Tuesday night,
is deserving of a more extended notice than
it received Wednesday morning, for the en
tirely sufficient reason that it was not only
well attended, but was one of the most har
monious and enjoyable affairs of the season.
Our reporter, under instructions to report
at ten o'clock, left before the young folks
had all gathered in, and hence the "ordi
narily well attended" item. The hall was
comf'ortab'y tided, with the best people, old
and young, of the city, and from half past
10 o'clock until .1, the floor was tilled with
ns happy a group of dancers ns one would
wish to witness. Harry O'Brien's excellent
string band furnished the music, which
was good, whether estimated as a guide to
the nimble feet of the dancers, or from the
nrtistic stand-point of the cultured listeners.
There was "no discount" upon the ball,
taken as a whole; and had a vote been
taken on the question of its repetition under
precisely the sum; management, the verdict
would have been a unanimous aflirmative.
Young men, engaged as clerks and
salesmen in our business houses cannot, as
a usual thing, make their appearance in
the ball room until 10 o'clock or later. Of
course the arrival of the young ladies who
accompany them is correspondingly late.
Other young men, and women too, by the
way postpone their nrrival until nearly
midnight, under the mistaken notion that
it is "fashionable" "rather aristocratic,"
etc. It is no such thing; and the stranger
present is apt to conclude that duties in the
kitchen, or behind the counter, or at the
sewing machine are as much to blame for
the unseasonable arrival, ns a false notion
of "propriety,'' or of whnt is "aristocratic."
The habit is not to be commended. If
participants in dances would gather ns
early ns eiht o'clock, they could shake
themselves to utter satiety by one o'clock,
and then have time before the ensuing
breakfast, to recuperate exhausted nature.
Assembling at 10 or 11 o'clock, however,
the dance must goon until three or four,
leaving the participants no time in which
to sleep or recover from their exhaustion.
We make this remonstrance in tho interest
of such sprightly old men as Dunning,
Olterly, Morris and Cnndco, who ache all
over whenever their regular rest is broken;
and not because it is anything to im, indi
vidually. VOCAL CONCERT.
