present could identify. Mr. John Cook, the
father of Thomas, was present and supposed
they had opened the right grave; but, of
course, in this matterthey were all mistaken.
The bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Xason and their

will be conveyed to Villa Ridge to-day.
The boys, and now and then persons

the "able and dignified editor," etc For
the space of an hour or two the whole Sec

in a well contested snowball battle if you
contemplate it from a distance.

of Mulkey, indicates un honest desire to

The wretched luiuim Is-ing who had
found bis way to police headquarters, yes
terday morning, was tin object to excite the
sympathy and compassion of the most har
dened. Sick, very weak, ill-clad, dirty,
woe-begone and penniless, we saw him
stretched uin.ii the bare floor, the most mis
erable and wretched creature we have seen
for months. He is a foreigner; but of what
nationality we don't know. We could only
understand his name, which he gave as
Paul Alexander Lewis. Where he came
from, or where he wants to go, nobody
seemed to know. Continued neglect and
exposure will soon decide the matter, how
ever. He will go to the "seven-mile grave
yard." The snow that covered "the face of
creation," yesterday morning, placed into
the hands of the tramps of the city, the eas
iest of means for obtaining a square meal.
Making mi early start they called at every
bouse where the outside indications spoke
of pretty good livers w ithin, and applied for
the job of shoveling the snow oil' the steps.
Moved by the unusual spectacle of a tram)
applying for work of any kind, the party
applied to "yielded lit discretion" and gave
the applicant a wholesome hot breakfast,
for about tivo minutes work. It is not of
ten, however, that the tramping vugs ure
fed by Cuiro people with such toothsome
edibles as those tor which they are indebt
ed to the present "beautiful buow."
The holidays arc at hand, and Dan
Hartman's stores are the centre of attrac

appropriate for Christinas presents than
were ever offered the people of the city be
fore, at prices to suit every pocket; article
from the toy picture book, which delights
the wee toddler, to the elegant piano, w hich
brings a radiant flush of pleasurj to the
cheek of the w ife or .laughter, can be found
there. For the little ones he has a bew ilder
lug supply of gift books, fin.) illustrated
works like the "Chatterbox," "Nursery,''
"Golden Thi-"ads," etc., while for the more
"solid minded'' ones his shelves contain
many of the best works in the language,
linely printed und elegantly bound. If
noiio of these touch the right spot, he can
give you a beautiful oold pen, an elegant
paper weight or ink stand, a box of Hue
paper, an album, an elegant chroino, a
violin, aceordeon, or guitar, a lovely toilet
set, a set of table chinu or glassware, solid
or plated table silverware, or, in fu, t, any
thing the heart cm wish for. In shoil,
Hartman's stock embraces everything to be
found in the largest of metropolitan estab
lishments, and you will be bard to please,
Indeed, if he cannot satisfy you. But to
be fully convinced, you must see his goods
and lcnrti his prices. You should not spend
a dollar until you have seen Hurt mail.
-And this is the way that Barton, of the
Carbondale Free Press, lets loose on Con
gressman Thomas and Postmaster McKealg:
"We ib) not hesitate to tell our worthy
friend, Captain Thomas, that Mclveuig
must come out; and if he has performed a
pilgrimage to Washington to offer up devo
tions nt McKcuig's shrine, the sooner he
hustles back t ) the placid wafers of the
Ohio, the better for him. We are an ad
mirer of Bob, and we don't want him to
make u fool of himself so early in the ac
tion." "Our weaiion is drawn
and the head of McKeaig must go to the
basket. Congressmiiii-elect Thomas must
not put his plethoric corporeal in the way,
or we will h"W him into inince-incat in
quicker time than a toad can snap up a
A Mrs. Julia Bryant, w ith her husband
und child, tied from Memphis on the out
break of the yellow fever there, and has
been noith ever since. All three of them
were in Cairo yesterday, destitute and de
pendent upon the already overtaxed charity
of our p.-ople for food and shelter. One of
our large-hearted citizens presented the
woman with a pass to Memphis for herself
and child; and when we saw her she was
trying to devise means to take her husband
along with her. She pretended to be grate
ful for the pass for herself and child, but
couldn't repress a feeling of resentment be
cause the man didn't make the pass cover
all three of them. What arrangement she
finally made for the old man, we did not
learn; hut she manifested quite a stout re
solve nit to leave him in such a place us
Cairo. To that determination we cry
"amen," for every Ixid.
The presence in the city, of M.-ssrs.
Gerricke and Roberts, of Brownsville.Tenn.,
has already been mentioned. They came here
to remove the bodies of the yellow f.-ver
dead that lie buried beyond the Mississippi
levee. The bodies of Phil Howard and of
young McEwen were removed Thursday
night, and re-buried in Beech Grove ceme
tery. Last night Messrs. G. and R. ex
humed the bodies of Anna Maria J.Davis and
Tim Connors, and turned them over to the
chargeof relatives. The bodies of Thomas
Xally and young Isaac Mulkey were also
exhumed, lat night, and taken by Messrs.
Gerricke and Roberts to Villa Ridirc,
w here they re-interred them. A sad duty,
this, upon the part of the relatives of those
dead; but one from the performance of
w hich nou' of them felt disposed to shrink.
all traces of them wiped out.
--It is a truism that may be considered
axiomatic, that some men can't stand pros
perity. This was exemplified in the ex
perience of one of our railroad employes.
From the pay car he obtained a pocket full
oi "'rei'iioaeks, a:el a!tiiou''ii not niueli
lnvwi to the flowing bowl, he got on a
"bender." From intoxication to a tight
was but a step; and. although he had the
w ill to whip a full acre of men, his ability
didn't keep pace w ith it. In fact, demoral
ized as he was by his potations, the single
individual whom he 'tackled" was "too
many" for him proved to be a double
geared, forward and back action thrashing
machine. The belligerent railroader was
"clawed fore und aft" in such short order
and in such a vicious manner, that Ik; con
cluded to limit his listic exploits to this
single reeouiitre. This he did, with a lurk
ing notion that he had not filled up on the
whipping kind of lighting whisky.
A reception was given to Bishop Sey
mour, yesterday evening, ut the residence of
Mr. Charles Galigher. Notwithstanding
the inclemency of the weather, quite a
large number of ladies mid gentlemen paid
their respects to the eminent prelate. It is
needless to add, since Mr. and Mrs. Gali
gher are known as the host and hostess of
the occasion, that the visitors were moi-t
handsomely and courteously entertained.
Among those present we noticed the fol
lowing persons: Hector und Mrs. Dillion
Lee, Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Gilbert, Mrs. W.

The Belleville Democrat, referring to
the candidacy of Judge Mulkey for a seat
on the supreme bench, says: "We have not
a word to say in deiogatioii of Judge Mul
key's eminent character as a lawyer and ci
tizen; but we protest against the monopoliz
ing tendency of Cairo in claiming all the
offices." And this palpably unjust, uncall
ed for "protest" niecls the endorw-ineiit of
the Joneslsiro Gazette. Cairo's tendency
to monopolize all the otlices! There is not
a community in Southern Illinois, number
ing 2,000 inhabitants, against which such an
imputation could not be more deservedly
made. During the twenty-four year of the
city's existence no Cairoite has been to con
gress; no Cairoite has ever received the no
mination of any party for any State office;
has filled a seat in the State senate, or
been elected to the supreme bench,
or even to the lower house of the General
Asseujbly, until the minority representation
law, by intention, assigned her a seat there.
The success of John lj. Harinan, in secur
ing the Appellate clerkship, forms the sum
total of the officers "monopolized by Cairo"
during her existence ns a city. Hacker
lived in Cairo, during a part of the time he
was in the legislature; and Allen was mucin
berof the constitutional convention a posi
tion that can scarcely be regarded an "of
fice." If such a record us this subjects us
to the charge of "a disposition to monopo
lize all the offices," what community of one
tenth of our population, is entitled to ex
emption from such a charge? Taking into
consideration the facts that Cairo is the
largest town in Southern Illinois, contains,
confessedly, the largest illld ablest
bar, and the greatest abundance
of eligible material out of which
to manufacture congressmen, senators and
state officers take these facts into consid
eration, and then consider the further fact
that, abundant us our material is we have
never supplied a single one of the positoiis
named with an incumbent, do this and
even-handed justice would praise us on the
