The packing operations of Messrs.
Hinkle, Thisticwood and Moore were arrest
ed several days ago by the cold weather. In
a few hours the carcasses of the slaughter
ed hogs froze as hard as rock, rendering the
cutting up and trimming processes so la
borious that a suspension of that work wus
enforced. The price at which pork is sell
ing would furnish but an indifferent profit
above the cost of cutting and curing a half
dozen frozen hogs being about all that one
man could dispose of. The app"arance of
the weather yesterday evening, however, iu
dieated an early resumption.
Upon the authority ot a gentleman who
was present at the exhumation ol our yel
low fever dead, wo stated, a few days ago,
that sonic of the bodies were unrecogniz
able because of the inroads of rats. Another
gentleman, who also claims to have been
present, informed us yesterday, that the
natural process of decay had been mistaken
for the work of the voracious rodent. This
last gentleman says that he made a careful
iii'-pectioit, and that there were not only no
holes in tin? coffins through which rata
could have effected an entrance; but that
lln re was u,i burrowing in the earth that
filled the graves, to indicate the presence of
such pots. One or two of the bodies had
decayed with unexpected rapidity; but the
greater number were in as fair a condition
as eould have been reasonably looked for,

h ast nine weeks of which the weather was

The iiunotuV'iiiirH made in a I'aducah
paper, some weeksrjo, that Col. Lowcry had
in cotitemplution the publication of a tem
perance paier, seems not to have been
uiiainhoiiz 'd. While temperance publica
tions nr.. not, as a general thing, financial
siieccs.-rs, we are disposed to believe that a
proper use of the Colonel's ability as a wri
ter and speaker, might, in this particular
I M'ulity, bring out of thn proposed project
a respivtable living. As the undertaking
has not yet taken ih finite shape, we feel
constrained to suggest to the Colonel that,
hi 'siiiueb as he has decided upou a month
ly publication, Mint lie give It. a magazine
Imp". The public has been forced to put
I" estimate upon monthly newspapers
most el them being devoteu to the udvertis
ing needs of their publishers. Not so, how
ever, with magazines. They maintain a
high place in public, estimation, and find
their way to the homes and offices ofthous
audit of persons who attach no value what
ever to monthly newspapers, though their
merit be of the highest order.
Sleighs and sleds and drags of every
inscription are abroad every day, their shape
and manner of construction forming quite
an interesting study. , The body and axles
of a delivery wagon are readily converted
into very respectable sleighs by running
curved bars of iron from axle to axle, to
servo as runners. Hut the rage seems to hp.
to mount a dry goods box on runners,
Scores of uncouth looking vehicles are con
structed in that manner, and we cannot say
that those w ho use them, do not enjoy the
snow quite as keenly as the individual w ho
sports the fifty-dollar cu.ter.
Powder and lire-arms are dangerous ar
ticles in the hands of boys, especially during
a universal hurrah, like that which charac
terizes our anniversaries and holidays. A
German boy's hand was severely injured,
Christmas afternoon, by the explosion of his
powder llask. Hy what means the fire was
communicated to the powder, we were not
informed, but it is a mutter of surprise that
the hoy was not rendered a cripple for life,
by the explosion. His hand was severely
burned; but it is not thought that the in
juries will deprive the lad of the use of it.
The boy lives in the Fourth ward, and is
the son of "August," the carpenter.
If the members of the several fire com
panies of the city would only settle it among
themselves which company "gets the first
water," they would confer an immense, favor
upon Cairo newspaper men, and save the
poor reporter a personal overhauling from
each individual member of all the com
panies claiming to have thrown the first
stream. The Hough and Readies claim to
have thrown the first water upon the fire
yesterday evening, and insist upon the fact
being so stated. In making this statement
we probably do no injustico to any other
company, as the Hibernians, because of
their proximity to the tiro and usual prompt
ness, were first on the ground; but they
were subjected to delay in reaching their
cistern. Hut, deal with the subject as the
newspaper man may, he is morally certain
to get "blowings-up" for it, numbering all
the way lrom ten to a hundred and fifty.
Captain MeKinney concluded that his
new boy had not acquired sufficient strength
to stand the infliction of such a mime as II.
S. McCoinb McKinney, and as it was some
what awkward, during his unnamed estate,
to call the child "him,'' the captain ven
tured, merely as an experiment, the name of
William Henry (iossMt McKinney. The
child endured it, is in apparently good
health, so the captain has concluded to let
that name "stick." We are sorry. We had
conceived an interest ill the boy under the
name of H. S. McComb, and had made up
our mind to provide him with an alitin
dance of roller comnositif ii to chew, and
printers' ink to u.-e as his infantile genius
might slight t. Hut all that's at an end.
William Huiry Gos'ett! We tan curb our
indignation; but not our sympathy for the
boy, nor our amazement at the captain.
It is with feelings of deep sorrow that
we announce the death of Frederick M.
Stocktleth, of whose sickness our reader
have already been apprized. He died at
his home, in this city, at half past 4 o'clock
yesterday evening. Mr. Stocktleth has oc
cupied such a conspicuous place in the busi
ness, social and oflieiul circles of our city,
that wo feel that his death requires at our
hands a more extended notice than the time
at our command permits us now to give. He
was, as nearly as any other man in Cairo, at
peace with all the world, lie was gener
ous, kind-hearted, frank and open-hand"d.
Few there are among us who will not have
a sigh or a tear for Stocklleth. The funeral
notice will appear in Tiik Rn.i.KTis to
morrow, when we shall strive to diseharge
the sad duty that seems to be committed to
Alwiiit three hundred citizens assembled
in the Reform hall, last night, to listen to
Col. Moore, of Missouri, and Col. Lowcry,
of Kentucky. The very best men and wo
men of our city were there, as were repre
sentatives of all the trades nud professions.
Col. Moore is a very pleasant, companiona
ble gentleman, probably sixty-eight years
of age; but with the vigor and vivacity of
a man much younger. We were deprived
of the pleasure of listening to his speech;
but were told that, although clothed in un
pretending language, and destitute of any
pretension to finished oratory, it was one of
the soundest, most cogent and effective
pleas for the cause of temperance, ever
made before a Cairo audience, It was re
ceived with unmistakable approbation,
pleasing the audience, and offending no
body. Col. bowery's remarks we need not
speak ot. The people of Cairo understand
the gentleman's character as an eloquent
speaker too well to render it necessary for
Us to tell them his speech, though brief,
was a good one,
The clang of the lire bells, between
four and fiv o'clock yesterday afternoon,
meant "business," Dense volumes of black
smoke rising from a building on Poplar
street, just above Eleventh Indicated the lo

hundred of citizens made their way with
an expedition suggestive of a very pressing
neeeMity, Fin- had broken out in tho
frame building, owned and occupied by
Mr. J. J, liili'rey, and had made such rapid
headway that the IImium wcro burtting
from the windows and roof, before, the fire
companies, whie hwero promptly on the
ground, commenced playing upon them. It
wus out of the question tos ive the building;
but notwithstanding its close proximity to
other buildings of a tendcrh-h nature, but
little damage from the lire was sustained
elsewhere. 'l'lie neighboring buildings were
hurriedly 'gutted of their contents; but the
actual loss, aside fiom that sustained by Mr.
Ralfrey, was inconsiderable not exceeding,
probably, iJoO or to each family. Mr.
Ilalfrey was not at home at the time of the
outbreak of the lire, else the alarm might
have been given earlier. His loss, including
ttirniture, etc., will reach live osis hundred
dollars, and we are told that he had no in
surance. Mr. 15. has tin- hearty sympathy
of our citizens. He is a poor man, and this
loss of his home, following so closely upon
the heels of severe domestic affliction, will
bill upon him very heavily.
We are reminded every day of our
lives that each of us, as an individual part
of the sum total of humanity, figure but as
an insignificant atom. We sicken, die, are
hustled out of sight, somebody sorrows
awhile, and then we are forgotten. Could
the til'ty or sixty citizens w ho died .if yel
low fever the peers of their survivors sec
the city and all the business and social
machinery that constitutes it, moving on
the slime as if they had never existed, they
might, for a tiim1, give way to paroxysm of
self-depreciation. Hut es w ith them, so it
will he with all of us. We may think that
we fairly shake the earlli as we walk, and
that our death would create' a void in the
intellectual, so.'ial and business world that
could scarcely he supplied. We think this,
most of us; but should we, "after passing
in our checks," happen to come to life in
our Collins, who can say that we would not
fiud ourselves the tenant of u pine box,
bumping and bouncing about in a dump
cart, with a lap-eared mule and a whistling
negro as the motive power, on our way to
the seven mile grave yard? The world is
made up of entirely too many people for one
poor creature to command much attention ;
and if any of our vain, self-iullated fellows
would enjoy a hearty surprise over the vast
dilf 'rence in the estimation they put upon
thoir own merits and the estimate at which
tho world holds them; they need but run
for an office that somebody else would like
to have, or die! In either case, if they are
not incurable asses, they will be struck dumb
with surprise at their consummate littleness.
And the same rule holds goo l if applied to
matters of a more material nature. Ooly a
few weeks ago our city was panic stricken ;
thousands lied beyond its limits for safety;
perhaps a hundred sickened anil a half
hundred died. To-day w e estimate that oc
currence as a matter of but litle moment,
and rarely give it a thought. Those who
fell are scarcely ever missed except in the
bereaved home circle, ami the city moves
on, the same as if they had never lived.
All the marks of the epidemic have been
removed, und, as h community, we no lung
er think of it as a dread terror or terrible
affliction. I'pon our business, upon values,
upon rents, upon our so'cisl relations it has
left no visible impress; and no one would
inter, hum appearances as tin y now present
themselves, that Cairo ever t'e'.t, (-veil t!n
slightest touch, of the gr-at epidemic,
Mleh ( XOTii lies :!',) siieedlly forgotten,
and it is well for us that they are, It is the
foiget fulness that gives place to the spirit
that builds up the waste placs in the world
as well as in our individual organisms the
spirit that built up great cities in the south,
where tenacious, unmodified memory of suf
fering and death, would have left but irloom
and desolation. The shadow of our late
affliction lingers in the homes of those who
were directly bereaved; but with the com
munitythe great body of the busy, hust
ling, money-making, business-pushing peo
ple, the shadow has followed the substance,
and the city moves on in its accustomed

Now and then we meet a citizen who at'-
fcets the belief that the appointment olj
committees to mature means whereby was
may leiice out the yellow fever nnolhery

Had our authorities, as early as hist
July, placed the outbreak of yellow fever iu
Cairo as among the possibilities, it is n-siiia-ing
nothing to say that sanitary mea .ores,
sufficiently rigid to keep the epid-mie ill
bay, would have been adopted. Hut now
that we know have been taught by ac
tual experience, that under certain condi
tions the discus? cannot only be transported
to Cairo, but to points far in the interior of
the state of Ohio, it would be a piece of
desperate recklessness which the public
would neither overlook nor i xeuse, should
we sit ipiietly dow :i ami do no'JiitiL' looking
to the pr t"ction of our p- q! in the future.
To deny that Cairo was smitten with the
yellow fever, would not excuse the neglect.
If it was not yellow fever it was an epidemic
no less tatal and more to be dreaded, bemuse
of our denser ignorance of its nature,
of tic mode of re itniciit, and means of dc-
feiiee against it. Hut our best authority
pronounces it yellow fever; and quite all of
us will contemplate the healed spell of next
summer with less misgivings, if we can
know that our authorities have matured
sensible measures of dci'ence against it. As
t.i the ability of our authorities to protect
the city in that regard, there can be no di
versity of opinion among intelligent men.
That matter has been affirmatively set lied
by the experience of Columbus, I'aducah,
Mound City, and all the towns and villages
around us. Had we exercised the batne
vigilance, adopted th'j same precautions
that were adoped and ex 'f. h m by the au
thorities of the localities named, our escape
would have been equally fortunate, and i!i
grave of not a single Cairoite would tell us
of the visit of the bronzed terror. Confi
dent that reasonable precautionary meas
ures would protect iii'against the plague,
the public, or toiyliinking portion nf it at
least, has ln-enjeicctiii'' iust such action
upon the piiirfof our citizens, as tin
p.!yiMVs''Mfoc'wtion lias inaugurated. Adopt 1
Kslleli oasures of protection, then, as expo- j
lietVe has shown us to be in ct ssarv, Mid
tic public mind will at onee settle down
into the belief that Cairo will be safe, let
the pestilence rage as it may in the cities of
the lower valley. Surely no harm .can
come of that: but great harm mii;ht come
should such prudent precautions be neg
lected. Let the discussion go on, then.
Silence might be held as ominous.
