James Butler, Charles Murray, Thomas

The much talked of race between Har

It should not be forgotten that the
Reform Club ball comes off this evening.
Tho balls already given under the auspices
of this club were pronounced successes in
every particular, aud we stand ready to un-der-write
that the affair of to-night will not
form an exception. Go everybody. Gen
tlemen tire admitted for one dollar, each, and
ladies go free.
About 0 o'clock Monday night, while
two of the clerks and .i number of the
laborers engaged in the Illinois Central
depot, were passing from the depot to the
car hoist to get a drink of water, some das
tardly villain fired upon the crowd several
shots. Who he was, and what instigated
the murderous assault, cannot be divined.
The bullets whistled uncomfortably near
some of the parties, and dodging was out
of the question.
We heard an ugly rumor, current in
the upper part of the city, to tho effect that
about two years ago a farmer of this county
married a widow woman who had a
daughter, then nearly of age. The farmer
took his wife and step-daughter to the
country; but a few days ago brought the
girl hack to the city, to undergo the labors
of child-bed, he being tho father of the
child. We give the rumor as we heard
it, withholding names until we are more
Mr. Sam Humm and his bride en
countered some trouble at the very com
mencement of their bridal tour. The horses
attached to the coach that was conveying
them to the depot, became fractious, both of
them got onto the same side of the coach
tongue, aud refused to budge and inch fur
ther. At this juncture the services of a
muscular attendant were brought into re
quisition. He carried both bride aud bride
groom over the intervening mud to the
sidewalk, from whence the party reached
the depot without further mishap.
Possessed of aa uncontrollable desire
to get drunk, as many as a dozen tramps
devoted an hour or two to honest labor,
day before yesterday, the object being to
earn money enough to purchase the re
quired whisky. The desire was gratified,
and there was more drunkenness among the
tramp element of our population Monday
night, than ever before seen in Cairo.
Only one or two of them were violent,
however. The . balance of them, when
they discovered themselves at the limber
stage of drunkenness, went off, as Bill Lee
says, and "laid down beside a log, like gen
About one o'clock, yesterday afternoon
two men, evidently steamboat deck-hands,
engaged in a violent bout at fisticuffs on
the Ohio levee, and, but for the iutcrferancc
of the police, would have battered each
other fearfully. Thcstro'nger man of the two,
swore that he would not be arrested, and
but for the presence of a strong coiumi-
tatus, he would have made good his word.
Officer Hogan, in repelling the man's threat
ening demonstrations, dealt him two heavy
blows over the head with dray pin. Al
though the blood spouted from the wounds
in streams, the fellow paid no attention to
the blows whatever. Five or six men finally
clenched him, and at the end of a fearful
struggle, landed him in the calaboose.
The crowd in attendance at Reform
Club hall, last nijht, to listen to Rev. (J.
Duerschner's lecture on "Dintheria, and
How to Cure It," was, owing to the in
clemency of the night, rather small. Music
was furnished by Iscnborg's band, as prom
ised, and very good music it was too, as all
who listened to it will testify. The rev
erend gentleman read his lecture from
manuscript detailing how, and why he dis
covered his cure, and how he tumlied it.
As he will, before his departure for Ger
many, publish his pamphlet, already copy
righted, giving full directions how to treat
the disease, it is unnecessary to make fur
ther reference to the mutter in the columns
of The Bulletin. The lecture will be re
peated to-night, in German, in Turner hall.
The chap that took Mr. Bennett's horse
from its fastenings, on Tuesday evening of
last week, gave himself the name ' of
Charley Albright a name that was doubt
less assumed for temporary uses. At least
a dozen persons saw the fellow muint the
horse, and ride him off, but ho dil it so
coolly and with such deliberation that it
was the general conclusion that ie was
using him with Mr. Bennett's tonsent.
From Cairo Mr. Charles Albright undo his
way to the vicinity of America, taking
several drinks at Mound City. Wien near
America lie became so top heavj that lie
loll from the animal's back. Cuttng him
self a keen switch, lie finally succeded in
getting on the horse's back again, md ns if
to punish the animal for not beiiv of the
kind a drunken man couldn't fall it' of( he
administered upon its flanks u nunliiT (,f
keen euu with his switch. Tie horse,
smarting under the blows, gave twior three
plunges, left Mr. Albright sprawhig upon
the ground, and, elevating his tai, dashed
off into tho neighboring timber. 'ht was
the last that Charles saw of tin 'spirited
animal. Next mr.rning a remh-m 0f
the vicinity named Litt captured ti horse
and took charge of him. Al1iright'inmjjj

somewhat, and continued his travels until
he reached Olmsted. Tho Rev. Mr. Olm
sted gave him employment, and the fellow
worked for his employer quite faithfully.
On Friday evening in presence of Albright
Mr. Olmstead spokeofa liostal card that had
iK-en received from officer Hogan; asking
them to keep a lookout for a horse-thief.
Albright retired to bed; but at 5 o'clock
Saturday morning he was mm est. At 7
o'clock, two hours later, Hogan arrived in
search of him; but the most diligent inquir
ies furnished him no clue whatever as to
the fellow's whereabouts. And so Mr. Hogan
lost his man by tho very means he had
adopted to asist him in capturing him
by writing that postal card.

ALCOHOL AND ITS ABUSES.
ME.NSHEN I'HEl'.M) DISCOURSES AT l.KMITlt
TriEltEOX, ANSWERl.NO. INCIDENTALLY,
OUU, CORRESPONDENT COSMOS.
Editor Bulletin: In your issue of
The Weekly Bulletin of the 10th mst. I
noticed an article headed, "Who is Respon
sible: The Dram-drinker or the Dram
seller?"' and signed Cosmos, in which
the writer claims to be a friend to
the cause of temperance; but from the gen
eral tenor of the article I am persuaded to
believe him to be an apologist for the
dram-seller. After stating that he is in deep
sympathy with a movement that has a ten
dency to stop the hbuse of intoxicating
liquors, and improve the morals of our peo
ple; lie goes on to say that the exponents
of the temperance cause entertain certain
vagaries, which to a certain extent retard
the progress of their work.
When Galileo first proclaimed the great
truth that the earth revolves around the sun,
he was not only told that he entertained
vagaries, and was laughed at; but was per
secuted. Yet to-day that great truth is uni
versally accepted. Friend Cosmos, I be
lieve you are partly mistaken when you
say that "the opinion pretty generally pre
vails among temperance people that saloon
keepers (permit me to use a different and
more correct term, "dram-sellers") are di
rectly responsible for the vice and licen
tiousness that issue from intemperance."
Let me enlighten you just a little on this
point. The prevailing opinion among the
temperance people is. that kith the seller
and the drinker are responsible for this ter
rible evil drunkness.
Allow me to show to you and to an
intelligent and candid world by indisputa
ble facts, that your theory of the responsi
bility of the evil of intemperance does not
rest solely aud alone uion the diam
drinker. In the first place could this great evil of
drunkenness exist without alcohol? and
secondly could ninety-nine out of every
hundred persons who drink intoxicating
liquor obtain it in any other way than
from the sellers and manufacturer? The
first is impossible, and tho second improb
able. Now if the evil of drunkenness can
not b'j perpetuated without the co-operation
of the two parties and both parties aware
of that fact, the impartial verdict of the
world proclaims both guilty, and if punish
ment is deemed neceary, both are deserv
ing of it. That the drain-seller pays license
fr the pi'ivileg,.' of selling intoxicating
beverages, cuts no figure at all. There is no
law in existence authorizing the making of
drunkards, and the dram-shop is the place
where nearly all .runkardsarc made. Hold
ing these views how could we as temper
am: people honor or even approve of the
business of dram-selling, or, for that mat
ter, the making ami selling of it in any
way. I hope friend Cosmos, you will give
us the credit of being at least consistent in
this matter. We not only disapprove of
dram-shops and therefore do not visit them,
but vo also warn all of their evil influence,
we persuade entreat and appeal to-the
better judgment of the people to avoid
them, no matter under what high-soiindin
name the business maybe carried on, for
they are nothing else than dram-shops,
gilted walls and fine furniture cannot hide
their correct name. Again friend Cosmos
you say that you are in deep sympathy
with any movement that has a tendency
to improve the morals of our people
i am certain liarnum wouiil give a
princely fortune for a pair of spectacles
with which to detect the appliances of
dram shops wherewith to improve the mor
als of our people, as they certainly would
bo the greatest curiosity of this or any
other age, anil which, from the tenor of
your writing, leads me to believe that you
possess. Now, pray don't bo selfish ; pass
them around and satisfy the curiosity of
an appreciative- public. Wo temperance
people plead guilty to the charge of having
made mistakes, for wo do not claim intali
bility. We are human, and, therefore,
subject to the intirniaties common to our
race; but we do claim that tho facts assert
ed by the temperance people in favor of the
great temperance movement, even to the
total abolition of alcohol, have never been,
nor ever will be, successfully contradicted;
and we ask in candor and kindness, a fair
hearing and an unbiased verdict for the
same by the public.
The truths of tho tjnipenineo doctrine
Bre: Drunkenness is a vice, and is the
cause, directly and indirectly, of more
crimes and suffering than all the other vices
that humanity is heir to. Such being the
case, tho interest of humanity demands that
all honorable means should be used to rid
tho country of this vice. Now, it is a well
known and true maxim, that where there Is a
certain effect there is a certain cause to pro
duce it. Take away tho cause aud tho effect
ceases to exist; und this maxim wo believo
to bo very applicable in the efforts
ts rid our country of this terrible
evil, drunkenness. What is the causa
of drunkenness? People and alcohol 1
Can drunkenness exist with cither the peo
ple or tho alcohol separately? It cannot.
Can a nation exist without people? No.
Cuu it exist without alcohol? I unhesita
tingly affirm that it can, and that the total
destruction of it is necessary to rid our
country from tho curse of drunkenness.
That intemperance is a curse and a terrible
one, no one will deny, and as friend Cosmos
very correctly remarks, it not checked,
would ultimately lead to the ruin of the
nation and the degeneracy of the people.
Now let us see what it has done, does do,
and can do for the health and vigor of man.
Alcohol, its uses, have been and are now,
for the most part, medicinal, that is with
regard to being of any kuetit to tho human
race; and it is even doubted by very emi
nent physicians that alcohol, when used as
a medicine, is beneficial to man.
It is stated by very high medical author
ity that alcohol as a medicine should be
used but very seldom, if at all; and then
only under the instructions of a conscien
tious physician. Whatever virtue as a
medicine alcohol may have may lc sub
stituted by the use of other drugs which
are not so likely to be used as an intoxica
ting beverage. But even admittinir that
there is some little good iu alcohol can a
nation afford to foster a thing that destroys
ten thousands of lives to wlcre it may le
the remote cause of saving one? Physiology
teaches, that in the healthy human lsxly
mere is carried on an incessant change;
old tissues are decaying while new ones re
forming; that this decay and growth nf tis
sues constitute life, and whatever inter
feres with, or impedes this incessant change,
ilisturos tlic vital lunction und impairs
health. As is well known alcohol arrests
changes in organic substances, that ii, it
w ill preserve animal substances from decay
for an indefinite period, and on tho other
hand arrest the growth of such substances,
Its action on al'iumen is to coagulate it,
and so this sulstancc forms a large part of
the brain, coagulation destroys its fine tex
tun., thereby impaling its action. It dimin
ishes will power, and increases the appf'
rite for intoxicating drinks. History, sri
and observation all prove that no peojile
are sale from the evil of intemperance,
while using iutoxicating liquors at all.
From the tenor of friend Cosmos' article
I am led to infer that he solely judges otlier
peoples' appetite from his own. He says
be is a teetotaler from principle, not from
necessity. May lie not be a teetotaler from
the fact that he has uo appetite for iutoxi
eating liquor and has had the blessing and
advantage of a sober train! eg and fewer
temptations than others?
If such is the case, Imposition for Wing
a teetotaler is much more favorable than
thousands of others, w l never enjoyed such
advantages. Some of the grandest, bright
est and noblest intelecta of our country have
fallen victims to this f -U destroyer; wouldn't
it be just a little egotistical in any of us to
hold that those men hail less will powur
and moral courage than we? Would it not
be more just, not to say charitable, to
attribute theii ruin to an almost ungovern
able appetite? The country loves to hom-r
those men, and is willing to cover that
fault with the mantle of charity. I hold
that there is but one remedy for this per
verted appetite, and that is, the total dis
tinction alcohol. This great truth, were I
able I would disseminate throughout the
land. I would ask every friend of the cause
of temperance and of humanity to plead
for it, argue for it, and work for it earnestly
faithfully and conscientiously. According
to my views the total destruction of alcohol
can only be accomplished in this country
by the total prohibition of its importation
and manufacture. This can best be done
by an amendment to the constitusion of the
U. S. to that effect. Such an amendment
cannot be made but by the will of two
thirds of the people.
The anti-teinperaiice people may say, you
temperance lolks have not that number on
your side, ami w hat are you going to do
about it? Be easy, Mr. anti-teiiiperaiice
man. We have part of that number, and
we will work to get the balance. The work
will be a great one, immensely difficult,
tedious and tiresome; hut the final triumph,
oh, how grand and glorious. This last
thought, with a consciousness of right, will
ever cheer and encourage us in our noble
work. It may be asked, "In what manner
will we perform this woik?" By educating
the people up to tho acceptance of the
grand truths contained in the temperance
doctrine. This, wu are aware, will require
time, patience and an abundant stock of
perseverance. The teaching of nny great
truths involves great responsibilities. The
teacher or educator must be honest mid
firm of purpose; must not only fetich by
precept, but also by example. In present
ing tho truth contained in the great tem
perance doctrine, we should do so fearlessly,
honestly, firmly and with dignity, wherever
a favorable opportunity is offered, and ulso
should never ignore the common civilities
which are duo to all m(. ud women. Let
us ever bear In mind that it is better to per
suade than to denounce, that in trying to
heal asoru to irritate it as little as possible.
Facts may U staled in a firm yet kind man
ner. Let our hearing in this matter of tem
perance education ht. HUcn that it will pin
us the respect of our opponents, though wo
niHy not at first bo able to gain their ap
proval. Mkksukn Fbkund.
"0NK MORE OF THE NAME SORT,"
Editor Cairo Iliilli titi:
"A Sufferer" is right in thinking that tho
existence of culinary schools would not prc-
yent the ladies from entertaining different
opinions regarding the capabilities of their
hired help," but no well trained cook
could fail to meet with some degree of ap
proval from the argus-eyed feminine mind.
And iu conclusion we would say, that if
culinary schools should be universally
adopted, it will be accomplished through
tho influence of energetic women, having
tho ingenuity and facility of thought that
is possessed by "A. Sufferer."
Every family should have a clothes rack
in rainy weather on which to hang clothes,
