From a private telegram, received yes

formation. 1 lie Illinois 1 eniral ireignt l. pot is
rapidly tilling up with Hour from Anna,
Red Iud, Pana and other points, and with
pork, lard oil, etc., inti tuled for Southern
markets. The accumulation is due to the
inabiity of the company to send freight fur
ward. The Illinois Centn.l railroad company 1
lias stored but little freight on their wharf
boat. With the river full of running ice,
nnd ice banked up all around, the company
is acting with very commendable prudence.
If the wharflioat trocs down, there will be
but little freight cither to fish out or pay
Lucy Morehant is the name of a colored
damsel who is occasionally given to strong
drink. She was before Judge Bird, yester
day, aud being unable to impeach the tes
timony that made out a case of drunken
ness against her, she was lined $2 and costs,
and sent over for six days to feed upon the
tree lunches set out by Maboney.
Considering the inclemency of the
weather, the attendance of the witnesses
and jurors upon the circuit court, yesterday,
was quite large. Nothing short ot a strictly
lawful excuse w ill be accepted as ft satis

One Ellen Davis was brought before
'squire Kobinson yesterday, to anwer to a
charge of having used threatening and
abusive language. It w as shown that Ellen
bad been unusually vicious and profane on
this occasion, and the 'squire thought a $10
fine wou'd about lit the case, and according
ly named that amount, with cost, as the
punishment. Being unable to pay she was
cidabooscd for ii period of sixteen days.
- The force required to check the pro
gress of any of the large, cakes or fields of
ice that filled the Ohio during the past few
days, was not to be found in the resistance
of a three-inch haiiscr, as Captain McKin
ney, of the MeComb has demonstrated. In
an attempt to reach the Kentucky bank the
other day, he ran out his three-inch hauser,
but it had not been made l'ist ten seconds
until the pressure of the ice snapped it as
if it had been a shred of twine.
There is a prospect that the St. Charles
hotel will soon bu re-opened for the recep
tion of guests. Mr. Kobinson, of the
Planter's house, is negotiating for a lease of
thu establishment, with very fair promise of
success. If the people of Cairo could dti
fide the matter, he would be Installed there
at once. The city, but much less the
owners, we should think, can illy afford to
have such an establishment us thu St
Charles remain closed.
Some of the steamboats and bin ires at
our wharf are in rather precarious situa
tions. Especially is the case with the U. S.
Lighthouse tender steamer Alice that is

ut thobow, and with the ice heavily bank

ed up on the outside of her. The Belle St.
Louis was also aground forward. A tug
was at work yesterday cutting away tlm ice
on the oiitblde. It was thought that when
the Ice was removed she could be relieved.
The Eckert is hopelessly aground, but lies
straight and level.
In charging the grand jury, yesterday,
Judge Harker culled especial attention to
the habit, in the young men of the times,
of carrying knives and pistols. He regard
ed tlw practice as a most reprehensible one,
and ascribed many of the homicides and
deadly assaults that so frequently occur, to
the mere fact that one or both the parties
concerned had weapons about their persons.
He committed the matter to the grand jury
ns one worthy of their attention.
Captain W. H. Coulter, for a period of
eight or nine years the engineer in Guli
gher's Cairo City Mills, died at his home in
'.bis city, on Sunday last, of diptheria. Ho
leaves a wife and four or live children, and
u circle of friends that reaches even beyond
the limits of the city, to mouth his sudden

vast deal of surprise, but not a gn at de d

One of Mr. S. E. Wilson's little girls

night, and the flames rushing up from the

the building. Mr. Wilson being at home

fiames by smothering them with Lis over

--We dropped in a v minutes on th"
Baptist Sunday school in Turner Hall, and
were most agreeably surprised and enter
tained. Under the superintendence of Mr.
Strode, this school is gradually growing in
interest mid size. Notwithstanding tic
cold, in-doors and out, nearly fifty children,
boys and girls had g.it!e:red there, whov;
eager looks showed that the superintendent
had succeeded in interesting them in the
exercUcs. The sinking of the children was
particularly fine. Mr. S., leads the singing
himself. MissMoute Mi tcalf, the organist,
not being present at the commencement,
little Mamie Stratton took her place at the
organ, and played in a manner that, in one
so young, was truly surprising. The par-
cuts of the children fail to recognize the
existence of the school, if their i.ersistent
absence may be given such an interprcta-
tion. Struggling us the school is, U r a
foot hold in the city, parents should not
withhold the encouragement their presence
would give. It would encourage both
teachers and officers, and addgreutly to tho
interest and attractions of the school other
wise. - No people in the world suffer more
from thejtricks, frauds and villainies of pro
fessed showmen, than the people of the
West. Circusses that advertise herds of
elephants, the only living hippopotamus
and white whale, exhibit ono runt of an
elephant, but little larger than a buffalo, a
canvass and straw imitation of the w hale,
and a sheet-iron hippopotamus. Quite re
cently the rascality ot the show business is
carried to the extent of down right robbery
The pretended showman hires a hull, ad
vertises a most wonderful entertainment,
with a gift to every one, worth five
times the price of admission, gets the
money from a full house, and then dodges
out of town, leaving his two or three hun
dred patrons in momentary expectation that
the curtains will rise. In like manner was
un eager audience "sold" in Cold Water,
Michigan, n few days ago. One William
Quick advertised ,m address by Cu, Bob
ert (1. Ingrrsoll. One hundred and eighty
dollars was realized from the sale of tickets,
and while the audience were doiii;- their
best to "stamp" Inger.soll from behind tbo
curtain, Quick was making trucks out f
town as fast as a fleet horse could can y linn.
It is needless to add that Bob Ingcrsoll
at that time was not within two hundred
miles ol Cold Wuter. Cairo lias been hum-
bugged into (he pationaga of very inferior
shows, but with all cur opportunities for
"rapid transit" nobody has' undertaken the
dodge so successfully played upon the in
nocents of Cold Water.
There yet remain, i:i the epidemic
burial place outside, th'i levee, twelve or
fourteen bodies, and perhaps as many as a
hull' ilo ii lying buried at other points. It
is highly desirable that tlie.se bodies bo re
moved and reburied at more distant points.
Wo may not urge this as a sanitary meas
ure, but the promptings of common hu
manity suggest that it be done. We do
not know that the exposure off.ny of these
remains next summer would work any in
jury to the health of the city; but we do
Know that if they are removed now, all
possibility of future harm will be removed.
Impelled by these considerations certain
gentlemen of the city will circulate a sub
scription paper among tin1 citizens to-day,
to raise money to pay for the removal. A
small contribution from every citizen able
to contribute will provide the necessary
money. Let us. then, all of us, give some
thing ami make a "clean sweep" of the
thing, w hile the cold weather continues and
:!ie men are in the. city who peri'onn that
kind of work. Whatever othersigns of the

I OlTl TENUBE OF LIFE
J Depends in great measure upon our regard
; for or neglect of the laws of health. If wo
I violate them wc cannot expect tJ "inukc
: old bones." But that the span ot exiMeia..;
allotted to a naturally delicate constitution,
or one which has been shaken by disease
may be materially lengthened, is a fact of
which we have daily proof. The vivifying
ami restorative influence of HosK tier's
Stomach Bitters upon a failing physique
affords a striking illustration of the power
of judicious medication to strengthen the
hold on life. Restored digestion, complete
assimilation, renewed nppctitite, sound re
pose, these are among the benefits conferrd
upon the debilitated by that supreme rer.o
vant. With a circulation enriched, a
frame invigorated, and a nervous syst. m
triinqiiilized, the invalid, after a course of
the Bitters, feels that his life-tenure is no
longer the precarious thing that it was
that he may yet enjoy a "green old age."
To all who are sullcring from the errors
and indiscretions of youth, nervous weak
ness, early decay, loss of manhood, !cc I
will send a recipe that will cure you, FUEL'.
OF ClIAUtiE. This great remedy was
discovered by a missionary in America.
