It is a comfortable salary that Internal
Revenue Collector Willis enjoys, viz $3,375

There was a good turnout at the Tax
payers' meeting last night, and considerable
business of public consequence was trans
acted. Such matters as we may make
public, will be presented, in our usual
terse and engaging style, in to-morrow's pa
per. During tho month of January Judge
Bird imposed fines that amounted, in the
aggregate, to $ 21 9. Of this sum only?ll

The temperance meeting in Reform
hall, last night, was well attended, and con
siderable interest was manifested in the
proceedings. Speeches were made by. the
Rev. R. Y. George, and a Mr. Hubboll, of
Jacksonville earnest, interesting talks
that were well received by the audience.
Among those who participated in the
social hop in Turner hall, Thursday night,
were Mrs. and Miss Hunter and Mrs.
Thompson Bird, ot Missouri. Because of
the Ladies' supper, in progress near at
hand, dancing was not commenced until
quite late; but the affair was immensely en
gaging and cxhilerating, notwithstanding.
The switches laid down by tho Cairo
& Vincennes railroad company for the ac
commodation of the mills, in the upper
part of the city, are being thoroughly
ballasted, a hard while broken rock being
the material used. The work is being
done under the eye of Dick Powers, who
knows all that can be learned about, track
laying, track repairing, etc.
A resident of this city who makes fre
quent trips to Grenada. Mississippi, says
it is undeniably true that yellow fever has
been developed in that burg and that
several deaths have occurred. Reports of
this character are so at variance with all
settled convictions as to the probabil
ities and possibilities of the disease that it
is quite difficult to give them credence.
Of the twenty applicants for law
licenses, who were examined in Mount
Vernon, last Tuesday and Wednesday,
nineteen passed a successful examination.
Among this number was Will Hendricks of
Cairo. We could name the unsuccessful
applicant, if we felt so disposed; and would
do so were we not apprehensive that wo
might yield to our feelings of indignation,
and xiiy som-thing out of keeping with our
character for amiability and complacency.
The Kniuhts of the Mystic Krew of
Coiiuis are rehearsing with a view to the
cny presentation to tne Cairo public ot
the popular industrial drama of Hubert
Biierly, The cast of the piece has already
be. n made with Charley Haup in the 'titlo
role, Fry as D.ilton, Ciiiholfer, as Meier
Moss and Claud Winter as llawkshaw, the
detective. The lady charaeV-rs will prob
ably be recognized "fictitious." They will

announced in a few days.

Good music, correct calling, gentlemanly
mituagement, and harmless enjoyment will

too, that tickets arc only 50 cents each.
Whilo conductor Keofo's train, on the
C. &. St. L. was scudding along at the usual
rate, near Kaolin, tho other day, one of
the wheels of one of tho passenger coaches
gave way; but tho ingenuity of tho conduc
tor was equal to tho occasion. Substitut
ing a "slide," tho train reached Kaolin,
where the coach was switched off, and tho
balance of the train went ahead as it noth
ing had happened.
There is an active demand for the
"Harlem" rafllo tickets. The animal is
rather a desirable piece of property, for a
certainty, and yet ho is sure to pass to the
ownership of somebody on a singlo two dol
lar ticket. Ho is said to bo u lino saddle
horse, showy and sufficiently spirited; hut
when you let him "get down to his best,"
you hear a whiz aud Harlem's out of sight.
City Clerk Phillis is in a fix. His
business throws him in contact with a
great many people, women as well as men,
but because of tho nppcarance of salt rheum
on his face, and the effect of the medicine
ho is using, ho is scarcely in a presentable
condition. The ailment is exceedingly
annoying to him, and excites the attention
and remark of everybody that meets him.
The people of Arizona are in a bad
way for wives. The editor of the Tucson
Citizen puts in a plea for a shipment from
the over-stocked markets of Massachusetts.
There is a demand.for all sorts black-haired,
red-headed, one-eyed and even bald-headed
girls. "Come one, come all," is the invi
tation sent out. As the editor does not
draw the color line, wo might, and with
advantage to the city, too, make him a ship

A negro woman found her way from
Occola to Cairo, by some means, and gain
ing admittance into one of the colored
families on Twentieth street, sickened, and
on Thursday morning died. As she left
nothing of her own, aud ns colored people
feel an especial aversion for imposing such
expenses on the county, two or three colored
persons were abroad, yesterday, engaged in
the up-hill business of soliciting money
wherewith to pay for coffining and burying
the body, which had laid where it died
during an interval of thirty or forty hours,

Wo have received from Messrs. George

Cincinnati, music publisher, etc., the
music, in sheet form, of two songs: One,
the "Old Fashioned Fire-place," the words
and music of which are by Will S. Hayes,
whose unquestionable forte is song-writing.
The words can not fail to revive pleasant
memories in the most sluggish mind,
while the music is sad and sweetly attuned
to the subject of the song. The other is
"Jennie with the Nut Brown Hair," a free,
light, captivating song by Clara Ritcliey
a lady of decided musical taste and culture.
With these songs came an instrumental
sheet, "The St. Cloud Waltz," a very mel
odious, tripping composition by Mr. C.
Ulricli, who is one of the most popular
coiiiposci s ol the times. Any of these
pieces can be secured through Parker, or
by Rending direct to thu publisher.
About two weeks ago one of our up-town
citizens lost his mule, ami searched diligent
ly for him several days, without finding even
a trace wf him. Two or three days ago the
owner had occasion to cross tho bottom out
in the direction of the Mississippi levee
and he came across a very large and deep
cistern, and at the bottom of this cistern
lay bis mule, dead. Grazing about the
commons, the mule had walked or backed
into tho cistern ami, as he had not been
missing long enough to starve to dentin
killed himself by the fall. As there was no
indications of any pretense to cover the dan
gerous pit-fall over, or any attempt at an en
closure, or fence about it, the late owner of
the late mule desires to be informed where
the responsibility rests. As nnimalH have
tho undoubted right to run at large on our
commons, the individual in question is cu
nous to know if the city is not bound to
remove such dead falls as old extern?, etc.

Record and other documents of mow
value, perhaps, than interest. From
Ben Periey Poore's Congressional
Directory, which we received yesterday,
wo extract the following biographic
sketch ot Mr. Hartzcll, to-wit; "William
Hartzoll, of Chester, was born in Sturk
county, Ohio, February 20, 1837; removed
with his parents to Illinois in 1840, and
thencototho then Republic of Texas in
1844, where ho remained until 1853, when
ho removed to Randolph county, Illinois,
whore he lias since resided ; was reared on
a farm j graduated at Mc Kendreo College,
Lebanon, Illinois, in June, 1850; studied
law, was admitted to the bar in Juno 1804,
and has sinco practiced ; w as a Democratic
nominee for tho Forty-sucond Congress,
was elected to the Forty-fourth Congress,
and was re-elected to tho Forty-fifth Con

against 14,071 votes for B. L. Wiley, Re

SOME MOKE OF THE SAME SORT.
"BREVITY," ALWAYS SENSIBLE, COMKS AGAIN,
AND DESCANTS ABOUT COOKEftY.
Mr. Editor : "Houskeeper's" communi
cation must have been a refreshing oasis in
your desert of hired help problems. It
was so in harmony with a man's way of
looking at the situation, so inconsistent and
unsystematic. It gives one the impression
that the writer is a gentleman who is writ
ing to amuse himself and the public, and
not because of any deep interest felt in the
subject chosen for discussion. The "im
practical gentleman's" "Institute of Tech
nology" would afford young men
an excellent opportunity for select
ing the trade or branches of
science most suited to their intellects
and inclinations. Mrs. "Housekeeper"
seems to have an idea that every young
man should adopt the trade or profession
of his father. Is it possible that any one
living in the United States, can retain so
absurd and old-fashioned a notion as that?
Your correspondent also thinks that the
girls would not attend the culinary schools,
because they are waiting for their faiiy
Prince; yet it is evident that thay do eon
descend to become inmates of the kitchen.
Why then should they consider it beneath
their dignity to attend the aforesaid school?
The occupation of a cook would no longer
be looked upon as a deg
radation, but as a profession.
For a competent cook is as much entitled
to a diploma ns an M. D., or a I). D. L. It
is a great pity that many women should be
compelled to lead the lives of the fabled
Salamanders, but it seems that fate has
decreed that they shall, until some philau
anthropic genius shall have invented a
cooking automaton; for woman is not a
Sampson, to free herself from the withes of
of domestic drudgery, that bind her so
securely that she has no time for the music
of life, only its discord.
Why cannot Cairo have one of tltose
cooking establishments? The gentlemen
reply, "taxes." True; but the benefit de
rived would be an equivalent compensation
for the money expended thereon.
We have been wondering if it would not
be a good plan for our unique institutions
to have nurseries, for the accommodation
of housekeepers who desire fo ntNiid and
bring their children with them; but have
concluded that it would not be advisable.
Let us enter nn imaginary nursery of that
character. The children are amusing
themselves, und laughing at each other's
antics; the nurses are chattering in a lively
way, or peeping through doors, to watch the
performances going on in the other part of
Now, peep in a half an hour lat-T, and a
different scone meets our sight. Cliildien
fighting, crying, and keeping mothers with
doughy hands, greasy aprons and burnt
fingers', rushing wildly in every direction,
ami uttering frantic ejaculations; but we
have created u little pandemonium, from
which we leave our readers to make their
exit. Now, Mr. editor, you no doubt
think these remarks rather lengthy, to have
been made by
