Mrs. Henry W ilV iin, a woman of
color, ci.niplained to p Hire Coinings, ye
terday, that although slit-was the mother
of Henry's children, aid a g)'Hl, virtuous
and dutiful wile, he 'had persistently re
fused to provide for Inr. l'"r a long time
she had been compellid to go from door to
door to beg the fond that the children ate,
and as for herself, not one single morsel of
food had pasW her lips for more than two
weeks! While this tile of Ill-treatment
was being unfolded, Henry ettered. His
story was that the Lord had ntver before
made such ashe-di vil us Mrs. rienry that
her tongue was aqua fort is, und that no
man could live with her, and he didn't pro
pose to try to do so
any longer. The much abused
mother listened and then declared ".'o' dc
lo'd-' that every word that that nigge,' had
spoken, was a lie that he was a brute, ami
so on, and that no decent woman would
have anythino to do with him. And thus
the nimable couple continued, until Henry
1c ft the office. The woman then conclud
ipg that if she sent him to jail, where he
deserved to be, she'd be sure to get nothing
out of lnm, she made up her mind to let
him run, and take her chances.
The exercises in the High school, yes
terday afternoon, were unusually interest

tained with vocal and instrumental music,
readings and declamations, and br a talk
to the school by Mr. Oberly. The instru
mental duet by Misses Annie Aivord ami
Edith Oberly was finely executed. The
duel sung by the Misses Corliss was deserv

touched. Possibly til.; boat wxs on fire, or
had torn n large hole in her Ixittom, i.nd
wasrapidly going under. Ill his mind's
eye he could see trantie paengers run
ning hither and thither, iiiljiis;ing life-preservers
to their bodies, and tiivowing over
chairs and mattresses lo the struggling,
drowning creatures in the water; and,
worst of all, he could see frenricd, shrieking
women,clingingtoblanched-fitced men, and
s"e little clnlilren, in terror ot Irigtit,
screaming for help that could not be tend-
rcd. All this be saw and heard, in imag
ination, and, seizing bis overcoat, he urged
a companion to accompany him and gain
ing the open air, much to his disgust and
horror, his companion indulged
in a rour of loud and
long continued laughter. "What, Sum,"
he ejaculated, almost angrily, "laugh now,
when " "Yes," icplied the otliT,
"laugh now; and I think it alxiut time to
laugh, when a man who has been about the
river as much as you have, can't tell the
singing of n heating stove from the dis

man had a pressing call, all ut once, to go
down into the city. At all events he didn't
go back to be laughed at.

A Mrs. Rurner caused the arrest of u
Mr. Anthony, yesterday, for whipping her
child. Upon the trial of the case it
came out that Mrs. R's. child being much
the larger, had assailed Mr. A's, child
quite violently, and that Mr. A. running to
the rescue of his child, and feeling deeply
exasperated, had pushed Mrs. R's child, so
that it fell to the ground. Esquire
Comings did not regard the case sufficient
ly aggravating to warrant the intliction of a
line, and discharged Mr. Anthony from ar
rest. Whereupon Mr. A. swore out a "peace
'warrant" against Mrs. IL, alleging that she
was "the terror of the neighborhood," and
had been in the habil of applying to him
regular installments of very exasperating
pet names so called. The trial came on,
and under the evidence the 'squire could do
nothing less than hold Mrs. 11. to security
to keep the peace with Mr. A., during a
period of twelve months. Rut the bond
didn't include the name of A. Comings,
Esq., and upon the devoted head of that
gentleman descended 0 such a tornado
of objurgations and maledictions,
interspersed with invocations and benedic
tions as never before was showered down
upon a mild and unoffending little gentle
man, since police courts became a part of
municipal machinery. It was a shower ol
nitric acid, succeeded by a douse of hot
water, inelt.-d pitch and "blue vitriol."
In the upper part of the city resides a

"Hang me if she isn't going to bed

"It's a mean advantage, Mary," responded
William, "to take of a feller that you kuow

is a pretty (dear case of "no promise no bed,"
I make the promise." And thus the little
woman ''nipped" a bad habit in her husband,
while it was yet "in the bud"; for nothing
that remains for future verification is surer
than this faithful performance of that en
forced promise. To other young wives who
have "uight-walking" husbands we say "go

A (iOOD-RYK TO MR. ORERLY.
During the exercises in the High School,
yesterday, the following very happily word
ed "Good-bye to Mr. Oberly," written by
Miss Maudie Rittcnhouse, was i"aii, and
very well read, too, by Miss Allio Ward
ner, lsitli young ladies being members of
the High School:
Mr. Oberly-Dear Friend and Patron:
It was with feelings ofthe deepest regret
and sorrow, tiiut the fact of your departure,
became known to the ineinbeis of the High
School. To be sure, we were partly recon
ciled to this calamity by the knowledge
that you were going in htate und honor,
only to taku higher stand ou the ladder
of fume, and to tread the flowery paths,
which we are led to believe surround the
politician. A friend f the school you have
been; beloved by all, since the first. At
the laying of tlie coiner stone, the beginning
of the foundation of this great source of
good, the Cairo High School, on the north
cast corner, June, 21, 18117, you, it was,
who held forth a helping bund, and stirred
the. hearts of tho people by your
grsnd and eloqii.'nf addresses. You, who
biuaiU.i.i hnurta ot our lirs'. graduating
class, with cords of love and frienship ;
voc who itirred them on to nobler, higher
lUiibitions; voi: who roiHcd tlu lr energy
and made their hearts burn with the desire
t do something good, to be something in
this world, to. leave behind them "foot
prints on the sandsof time." And to every,
or very nearly every class since, you have
made just such brilliant ne'er-to-be-forgot-ten
sii'echcs. We shall ever miss your
pleasant visits lo our school, and upon
many a Friday ufternoon, our scholars will
find a blank, a vacant space in the room,
when they fail to see your kindly smile of
greeting, and notice that an intelligent and
appreciative spectator has disappeared
from among ns Your cheerful counte
nance always inspires us with fresh enthusi
asm, und after seeing you, liken draught
of new wine to thosoul, we "proceed to the
labors of the day" refreshed.
Mr. oberly has given ur school the
praise which it deserves, in the well patron
ized paper which he formerly edited.
The compliments paid to the school, in the
columns of work reported of it, were al
ways appreciated, and in behalf of both
scholars and teachers, we now earnestly
thank him for them all. Many of the
pupils of this school will also miss the
bright "good mornings" of his fair little
daughters, but the one dear girl, impulsive
und warm-hearted, who is associated with
so many pleasant reminiscences in our
minds, will be sincerely longed for by all.
Accept our best wishes for your self and
family. May you ascend so high in life,
that your name w ill be engraved on the
hearts of all the world as clearly as it now
is on the minds of the people of Cairo.
We do not deem it necessary to add. may
you ever be a joy to the people of this gen
eration, for is there not un old saying "A
thing of beauty, is a joy forever f"

herself, was some fond mother's d tiling ;
Flirty or fifty. -r less; 'lis hard l'J t''H the
woman's year-; when sic has starved and
fio.en to death. Stakvui. in this land of
pl.-uty l-'Uiizi-.N. m this land of forests and
coal .fields! and a woman, ut that ! What
a picture for the philituthruphist ! Vi'hat a
sermon to the "missionary societies." "Let
every man pluck the beam from his own eye"
is aptly syinbo!i,"d iu cases like this, when
we are so merciless and pitiless to our own.
And to think of the stockingless limbs and
almost naked feet; the thin, worn cotton
clothing with never a comfort about her!
Only to think of the horrors of a starvation
that hud fastened itself upon her when the
very neglected walnuts as they lay iu the
woods, suggested themselves as a means ot
prolonging life the miserable painful life
that she so clung to that she so loved
that she so longed for that she could not
waste even those poor walnuts, but boarded
them in the folds of her thin dress; carried
them in her chilled bosom! Was there
ever a time in the years past by, that a
baby head lay nestling there ( That warm,
rosy lips drew- sweetest nourishment from
the throbbing, life-giving breast? Little
dreamed she then how hard her lite
would prove little reckoned she of the
day whin her last hold tin life
would be a sheltered handful of walnuts
where the baby-head had lain! Talk not
to me of the snares that lurk in riches; one
handful of gold would have bought for
that woman tlie shelter and warmth, the
light and the food ot the best home in llie
whole Mississippi Valley. For lack of it
she starved, and l'roz.t, and lay alone be
neath the blue sky, an J shrank and shivered
before the the winds "that are tempered to
the shorn lamb" but pierce tn the bone the
naked woman lay there, alone, suffering
God knows what dreaming of home nnd
friend, of light and warmth and died!
Could we know if pitying angels carried
her soul to heiivcn cmil.I we believe
aught else? Whatman deserts and ('Sod

compassionate? Verily, yes.
