During Sunday services in the M. E.
church, the subject of infant baptism was
discussed. Fastened to the back of each
seat is a pocket in which envelopes are
placed for the accommodation of those who
may choose to mako contributions. Upon
one of these onvelopes was an endorsement
substantially, as follows: "I don't take
any stock in infant baptism. That's what
I contribute to this church." Underneath
this the writer gave his name in full
which may be accepted as an intimation
that ho doesn't enre a continental who

two or three attempts heretofore made to
establish and maintain henneries, resulted
in failure. The most notable failure was
that at Villa Ridge, about fifteen years ago.

Yesterday morning wo heard that Sheriff
Hodges had arrested a negro woman named
Ross, a resident of Twentieth street, be
cause, during Saturday evening, she had,
with the persistent heart lessncss of a tiend,
choked her three-year old step-daughter to
death. The story was that the child's
eight-year old brother had informed the
neighbors that he hud seen his step-mother
choke his little sister until she turned black
in the face and quit moving. Thinking
that there might be something in the story
we visited thu locality, and learned that
Sheriff Hodges had been thereto pudi in
quiries, but made no arrests. Tho boy de
nied that he hud told the story charged to
him; "but," said tho gossips of the street,
"of course rV was scared out of the truth,
knowing that there was plenty of chok
ing left to go all around tho family."
But it soon came out, covered deeply with tho
chaff of speculation, conjecture and non
sense, that the little girl, although playing
on the streets, up to supper time Friday
evening, had been suffering from an attack
of dysentery. During the night she dis
charged bloody mucous, copiously, and on
Saturday morning she was a corpse. The
very fact that, furnishes an explanation of
the child's death otherwise, is accepted by
some of the colored women of the neighbor
hood, as conclusive proof that death was
caused by strangulation. The deceaseds
aunt is impregnably fortified in the con
viction that tho child was choked to death,
because the stools resembled bloody calf's
brains. And this tonus the whole story.
Tho child died of blody-flux or dysentery,
and the report that its step-mother killed it,
has no better foundation, we dare say. than
the inferences, conjectures and concoctions
of ignorant women.
The annoyance occasioned by the .con
tinual crying of the baby, at once ceases

Had wo the lien of Griswold, and a few
hours time at our command, we could,
from our notes of the Republican meeting
Ja.it night, furnish n p.tg'- or two of matter
that would set the community in a roar.
It was generally understood about the
city yesterday tnat a K 'puliiican meeting i
wotud he lieiu m the court house in the
evening, and it was hint".! that the
object was to cxpres, dissatisfaction over
the re-appointment of Col. Keaig to the
Cairn pustollice. About S o'clock, the court
hou-o being well liil-d, the m-eting
was called to order and Col. Wood elected
chairman and !!. II. O'Brien secretary. On
taking the chair th ' Colonel Plated that he
had not been ai'vi-"'! a.-, to the purpose, of
the met ting, but supposed it would be de
velops 1 during theprogre.v. of the inet-tintr.
Cou.-t.ible Ghidney then took the floor and
briefly explained that the meeting was call
ed to niveau exoiv-sion of sentiment re
ii'iiiny the reappointment of (.'ol. Mc-Ke.-dg.
Jm!;" Bird b-ing called f,,r came for-
end made in intimated, well-worded
bing speech. He said tl e rciomont- 1
t of C.lo:i'd McK 'nig wai a matter !
deeply coaeerne-1 the R pub'iciiii
not on iv tin-, Ctieri'v-sioiial ,
district, but of the nation. It was i
a Itiatief of vital coneer t to the ',111') col- I
ored voters of the district, whom C il.
Mi Kcaig, !t., Federal officer, had not oniy
ignored but had insulted. He had not only
refused to give colored men employment in
his office, but hail said Ilia! the time had
not yet arrived for colored lne.i to hold
ollice. Col. Mi 'Keaig had I'eltis d to give
him (Bird) a position in th- office, alleging
that he had Worked with his enemies
agaiiint his appointment. To obviate that
objection, he had named an intelligent col
ored man foi'thouppointment against whom
no such objection could be urged; but had
the Colonel appointed hiinJ No and
why? Because he was determined to give
uh colored man a place in tin- Cairo
post office! And I now tell Col. McKcaig
to his face, that the man holding tho offi
cial position that he holds, who tells the
2,000 colored Republicans of this con
gressional district, and the SDO.000 of the
United States, that the time has not yet
come for colored men to hold office; und
who shows by his stillborn refusal to give
colored men positions to which in right and
justico tliey are entitled I tell him to hia
l'aco that, us such a man, ho is too great u
load for the Republican party to curry,
and tlo party must throw him off, or t a tee
the consequences! I tell him and all other
Republicans whose duty it is to recognize
tho colored man ns a political equal, as
well i" bhe dlutiihution of offices, as
otherwise, after thirteen years of
devotion to tho Republican party,
clinging to it at all times and under all cir
cumstance, that the timo has arrived for,
them to hold ollice, and they will demand
tho right fr oin this time forward and tho
Republican party will deny them at its per
il. (About this time Col. McKcaig aroso
and denied that he had employed thu Ian
guago charged to him. Mr. Bird called on
one Thomas Clark, who arose in the audi,
dienoo, and said that tho Colonel had said
in hisprosimce that "there was timo enough
for tho colored men to get ollice,"
which being regarded in lhe nature of a
"chincher" on tho Colonel, was loudly ap
plauded) Judge Bird continued, saying
that, while he, the Judge, was abroad in the
hills and swamps fighting for his party, at
the sacrifice of his time and m.mcy, Col.
McKeuigwas lying at his case in his pot
ollice, not caring, apparently, whether the
party went up or down i tong (i die drew
his salary of $2,000 or $.7,000 a .oar. And
I tell him now that ban' it not b for the
pay for the emoluments he has enjoyed,
that I am only one of the many who be
lieve there would not be even the smell of
Republicanism ywm his garments! He
seems to wear 'Thouors easy; but I tell
him lie is V,,ead weight to his party,
and enter' Lying the opinions he
avows, liis maintenance in office is
a standing insult to colored voters;
and I repst that the Republican party c.ui-
id-A: not carry hint up on its shoul
i Jnger. In this vein the Judge
ci ,. . nt considerable length, main
taTil lit evenness of his temper the
whjated. bough speaking with earnestness
Ar :dV close of Judge Bird's remarks
Col. M n iLg arose to reply when a num
ber of pylons present evinced a disposition
to leave. The chairman utatcd that Col.
MeKcaig's Republicanism hud been as
sailed, and as he had a right to reply, it
would only be an act of deserved courtesy
to listen to him. The Colonel said every
body wanted the Cairo post office, und
Bird was one of them. He seemed
to think thut unless he got office the
Republican party would go to eternal
smash, and he had threatened hero to
night that unless he got an office he would
go over to the Democrats. It is a personal
thing with him. He came to fne like a
whining spaniel, '(called to order by the
chair) and because I would't give him a
place, he now threatens to bust the Repub
lican party all to pieces. His statement
that I claimed I carried the colored vote in
my pocket is false. He told me hist Satur
day that he could control the colored vote
as he desired; and he's drummed up this
crowd to show his great influence. If I
were so disposed I could get a crowd of
colored people together that this house
would not hoid; and I t-ll these co'ored
men here, who are wandering off after
Bird and Bill Scott, that they are abandon
ing their best fri"iid to no good purpose.
I tell Bird that when he goes to Washing
ton wkh'his great petition he'll amount to
no more that tho other little dogs running
around there; and h"'!l find that he doe-at't
amount to half as much as he thinks he
Iocs, and will then conn

Democrat, as his ilrst assistant postmaster,
was certainly not the way to heal tho bruise
that had been. inflicted upon

Whereas, the breach ot mutual confi

in this, the ISth Congressional district, and
they being the balance of power, have
