There was a decided commotion at
the landing yesterday evening, occasioned
by the reported approach of a broken gorge
of ice. Steamboats got up steam and
seized upon the wharf-boats, barges aod
coal flats moored at the landings, and towed
them to a place of safety. Before night-fall
the landing was cleared of boatsand floats of
every character that was liable to damage
from the on-coming ice-fields.
It is mentioned as an atmospheric phe

satisfactory explanation of this seeming
phenomenon; but we never permit our
selves to explain anything on Sunday.

menaced by tv third ruffian, that he deemed

of lessening the violence of tho

number of citizens, including a policeman
or two arrived on the ground, when all three
of the unruly fellows were marched off to

penchant for bullying officers of the law
would have drawn a useful lesson from the

The editor of the Carbondale Free
Press doesn't endorse the suggestion of our
correspondent 'Cosmos," that the wrath of
temperance reformers be withdrawn from
the whisky maker and seller and rained
down upon the head of the whisky
drinker. The Free 'Press says :
"When a man has forsaken fiinily and
lriends for the purpose of gratifying an
appetite, the whipping-past ha no terrors
for him. There are, we think, but two
remedies, namely: moral suasion ami con
finement and medical treatment at public
expense. Any one who has lifted the sable
curtain that enshrouds the drunkard's life,
and witnessed the sufferings, the misery
that words cannot utter, will shrink in hor
ror at the mention ot the whipping post as
a remedial agent. Moral suasion, backed
by unswerving vigor in carrying stern leg
islation relative t,o the manufacture and
sale of alcoholic liquors, is just what is
needed. Let temperance people continue
unceasingly their labors of love. We have
gotxl temperance laws let them bo en
forced. We ought to have better prohib
itory laws, if necessary. Moral suasion and
legislation will, in time, do the work."
ALARMING INTELLIGENCE FROM
MR. W. H. MORRIS.
The following intelligence conveyed by
the following telegrams, handed to us last
night, by Dr. Dunning, will cause profound
sorrow throughout our entire community:
Chicago, 17th inst., 4 :115 o'clock, p. in.
Dr. C. W. Dunning;
Will Morris is dangerously ill, with pneu
moniasituation very critical. He is at his
brother's. Will advise you of his condi
tion to-morrow. J ewett Wilcox.
Chicago, 18th inst., 4:30 o'clock, p.m.
Dr. C. W. Dunning:
Have just left Morris. No perceptible
change. One lung entirely cloed;
breathes with difficulty through the other.
Very low. Jewktt Wilcox.
We regret to add that Dr. Dunning re
gards the recovery of Mr. Morris as an im
possibility. Great bargains in

REYNOLDS' THIRD NIGHT
TALK- liV SKVKKAI. CITIZENS, AND AS HOIKS
M'KKCH KUOM I)H. REYNOLDS.
The crowd that turned out to hear Dr.
Reynolds, last night, was the largest that
ever assembled in the Reform club hall.
Before introducing the first speaker
President Barclay remarked that he noticed
most gratifying evidence that the interct
in the temperance cause in Cairo was nut
dying out. On the contrary, the leaven
that had been set during the past day or
two was doing a noble work. As an in
stance he referred to an up-town saloon
where, on Thursday night last, as many as
twenty young men had gathered and were
passing the night in drinking and card
playing. Last night, at 10 o'clock, the man
who happened to be passing that saloon
saw but one man, that man was the propri
etor and he was shutting up shop. From
this circumstance could be argued the etl'cct
the present effort was having upon the pub
lie mind, nnd especially ixm the young
men who frequent oursaloons.
Mr. Chns. Pink was next introduced, and
regretted much that he did not possess the
eloquence of a Webster, a Clay, a Prentiss
or a Reynolds, that he might move men
and women to a zealous, enthusiastic effort
in tho cause of temperance. His whole
heart was in the work. He whould have
the fathers and mothers of this generation
inculcate in their children a zeal for the
cause and an abhorrence for the curse of
drunkenness. He would have the young
thus educated from generation to generation
until we could proudly Itoast of a country
entirely free from the blighting effects of in
temperance. Mr. Pink continued in a very
earnest manner for five or ten minutes,
when Dr. Dunningwas brought to the plat
form. The Doctor said that the reform club
had heard him so often that he feared the
application to his case of the adage that
"familiarity breeds contempt." He said
th.it when he first engaged in the cause and
accepted the presidency of the club, many
of his friends admonished him that, looking
at the matter from a business standpoint,
he was pursuing an impoltic course; but as
ho had, as well in the study us in tho pur
suit of his profession, been schooled to a
full knowledge of the damning and de
moralizing effect of liquor drinking, he felt
implied, as if to the discharge of ft great
and pressing duty, to throw his influence
to the help of the temperance reform, let
ting business considerations take care of
themselves. From this point the Doctor
treated tho subject from a moral and sei
entifie plane, and made an excellent speech,
and one that would "read well in print."
We took full notes of the Doctor's speech,
but are admonished by tho lateness of tho
hour to pass mi with this brief and unsatis
The next speaker was Mr. Penn. He re
garded tho vast crowd in his presence as a
powerful temperance speech of itself. There
was, clearly, a new awakening among the
leople. Enthusiasm was intensifying, and
he never before saw us many red ribbons in
Cairo as since the arrival of Dr. Reynolds.
The saloons of the city tempted the pussers
by with showy signs announcing the
attractions within. He proposed that tho
temperance folks try the effect of advertis
ing, themselve". Let every man put on his
red ribbon that it might tell the passer-by
that he hud decided to be "good to him
self" and that he dared to do right. Mr.
Penn then related an incident illustrative
of the variety of causes that move men to
abandon their cups. A small boy, fortified
by three verses from the Bible, was the in
strument that won two hardened and besot
ted men to the paths of sobriety and de
cency. The labors of the club, lead by Dr.
R. were achieving a world of good; but if
the salvation of one man were all they
could point to it would be a grand and no
ble recompense for their work.
The congregation then sung "No. 13,"
at the conclusion of which Dr. Reynolds
stepped forward, and related a humorous
anecdote. A rural merchant visited New
York, and concluding his purchases Satur
day night, concluded to stay over Sunday
and sample New York preaching. He en
tered a gorgeously appointed church ; soon
the minister appeared, and opening
his Bible, announced as his text: "Si
mon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever."
Not relishing the sermon particlarily, he at
tended a different church in the afternoon,
when, much to his surprise, the same little
preacher came from a side door, entered
the pulpit, nnd opening his Bible, an
nounced his text, which was as follows:
"Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever."
The rural merchant was wedged in, way
forward,and couldn't work his way out, and
the result was, there he had to stay and suf
er the infliction of the identical sermon he
had heard in the morning. Going to an
other part of the city in the hope of getting
a mouthful of fresh gospel
he entered a third church, to listen to the
evening sermon. Imagine his consternation
and horror when that same ubiquitous,
pertinacious little preacher again put in an
appearance, and in the same form announcd
that he would found his evening's discourse
on "Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a
fever." The ruralist stood the torture of
the sermon the third time be
cause he couldn't help himself. Next
morning while awaiting the depart
ure of the cars at the depot, the neigh
boring church bells tolling the while, that
same undodgeable preacher approached
him: "My friend," said he, addressing the
rural merchant, "can vou tell me whv those
bellsare tolling?'' "I can," replied the ru
ralist, "do that very thing. Simon's wife's
mother is dead !" The Dr. resuming, whei,
the laugh had subsided, said he was not
unlike that pre-eher. This wa- his third
night in Cairo. Everything that could be
said had been said about temperance aud
intemperance, and the audience mu.t ex
eusc him should he, like the New York
preacher, give them a little too much of Si
mou s sick mother-in-law. The tune was
when men ami women hail not
learned from the press and tin; forum the
enormities of dram-drinking; but such was
not the case now. From every pulpit, from
every speaker's stand ia the land had tin:
degradation, the misery and ruin w rought
by alcohol been proclaimed, night and day,
week in and week out; and what ever
may nave oeen tne case in i. inner
years, no man could now
say he had not forsaken his dissipated ways
because he had not been informed of th?
disgrace, poverty and wretchedness that
were certain to follow as a consequence.
No man can say that; for the frightful ex
amples are before him on one side, the dam
nation und woe of drunkenness; and the
better and brighter, grander and nobler ex
amples of men released from the alcoholic
meshes of hell, happy, prosperous, respect
ed men, are before him on the other side.
It was our purpose, on the onset, to give
a full outline of Dr. Reynold's remarks, but
on the very threshold of that pleasant lalxir,
we find ourselves confronted by obstacles
we ure unable to overcome, viz : a full pa
per, and an hour so advanced that we are
compelled to desist, lest we imperil the regu
lar delivery of our paper this morning, to
its hundreds of expectant readers.
To-night Dr. Reynolds will detail the
"Ten reasons why men drink whisky,"
and then demonstrate the fallacy of such
reasoning. Judging from the turn out last
night we shall not bo at all surprised if the
necessity for a hall twice as largo as that of
Reform hall, if which President Barclay
spoke, will be amply demonstrate;.!.

"THE LITTLE PRODIGY,"
A WELL-OIIOLNDKD COMPLAINT AND I'HO
TEST, AND A FEW It KM AUKS Til KIIKON.
EniTon BfLLETl-N : A neat little card is
now being offered the citizens ot Cairo, in'
the shape of un "admission ticket" to the
Evelyn Spyer entertainment, but which will
cost the investor jmt use DOLLAn apiece.
Now, it does siem to me that with the
depression in business, and the hard tunes
the people nre undergoing, that to be called
upon to pay any such a price for an even
ing's entertainment, is simply an oi riiAor
(even though it be to hear a "prodigy") and
should Ik! regarded by our citizens as such.
As a young man working on a salary,
and feeling the worth of a dollar. I do not
feel justified in paying this amount, espec
ially when it w ill require an extra ticket for
company. This is no particular c:i". but I
kuowit will apply to quite every young man
in Cairo. There is hardly one of us but
who wishes to go there, and to have lady
company with us, but do not, want to be
compelled to pay opera prices for the priv
ilege. I do hi.x'. that if the manager dm-s not
see tit to place the admission ht 30 cents,
wlu re it ought to lx-, tout the young men
will decline t invest, and that tkey will be
approved by the ladies.
Remakes. Wc feel well assured that, as
claimed Wy our correspondent, the manager
has made a mistake in fixing the price of
admission at one dollar. A general admis
sion of fifty cents, w ith twenty-five cents ex
tra for reserved seats, would secure a better
paying house than can l-e secured under
present arrangements. Never ln-forc, ex
cept iiKin two or three extraordinary occa
sions, have the people of Cain) Wen asked
to pay one dollar for a single night's enter
tainment. We are unused to such charges;
and if persisted in we fear that the man
ager will deplore his mistake when it is too
to remedy it. Ed Bclletin.'

If there is i.ny one aggravation in this i
world umre aggravating than all the bal- j
anee, put together, tint aggravation is the j
aggravating "Hired Girl." And if there i j
any one place above and Ix-yond ail othet j
that is especially cursed with that kind of j
girls, this is the place. It ha occurred to j
to me fifty times, more or less, that there
was something radically wrong in the man
ner in which we housekeepers manage
alwut our hired help. That must be one of
the reasons why the hired help is so univer
sally no help at all, in Cairo. I know of
no other place where the same kimt of ser
vice would command anything like as good
wages as it do"S her; or, in fact, command
wages of any sort. And the privileges al
lowed, are, I believe, generally speaking,
of a kind not usual elsew hcr;. Yet with ull
this the average girl is ju.-t alxiut equiva
lent to no servant, leaving out th" lVt of '
her wages and bo:.rd, which go on w hether j
she earn cither, or not. Let me digress,
right here, long enough to pay a tribute of '
respect to th'; few the very u-w really
good, faitht'll, conscientious, hotii.st ser
vant gills that I kn'jw, who ren
der full service for their hire,
as well as tarn and keep
the respect and good will of all who know
them. They deserve all praise, mid no one
more heartily accords it to them than Jo I.
But, oh, dear, where there is one such there
are twenties und thirties that an; utterly
worthless. Only about one in seventeen
knows how to work, to begin w ith, and manv
of those will not work. This is particular
ly the fact among the colored women. "I
dos'nt has to work," is the reply usually giv
en when askisd if they will work. A lady
friend of mine was so unfortunate, not
long since, as to give oftense to her cook.
She had had her a twelve-month or so, and
had rather stMiiled her, She left tho easy
mistress, well appointed, plentifully sup
plied home, without a day's warning, or one
word of gratitude or thanks for the many
favors shown her, and the altogether kindly
treatment slip had received at the hands ot
tho entire household. That lady has taken
into her service live different women in less
than two months, each and ull of them
"gool cooks, washers and ironers" accord
ing to their own showing; but in reality, us
ignorant of the knowledge of any
one of those accomplishments us
tnpy were devoid of truth

experience of almost every other woman
who is so unfortunate as to have no de

vants that can be had here. I have giv.-n
the matter some serious thought, and tlc
conclusion I have arrived at is, thut tin
mistress as well as the maid is not exactly
all her ixisition demands of her. Many of
them do not know when their work is wcL
done are as ignorant of their duties as uay
servant is of hers. Others think that id!
that can be asked of any woman is to ;rt
the best help she can and then turn hi-r
household affairs entirely over to
that help, forgetting thut cvnv
house has two distinct and vparat
departments that ot mistress ami that o"
servant that no one woman, no matter by
which name she call hcrelf, can till, prop
