Invoices ot new goods arriving daily
at ('has Stewart's on Eighth street. His
moods were purchased at lowest prices and
will be sold very close. His customers
always realize the benefit derived from his
long experience in .the dry goods trade.
Chas.Stuart.the Eighth street dry goods
man, returned home last Friday, Invoices
of new goods commenced arriving the same
day, and his whole force has been kept busy
getting them out nnd ready for his custo
mers. He knows what they want and has
got it for them.
The Theatre Comique presents new
attractions in rapid succession, nnd the de
corum and good order that characterized
the opening entertainments, are still en
forced. Miss Ella Arnold, an Eastern vo

the coming week.

Elder Shop's sued Cur'.ey Mike for
driving on the sidewalk, and the case came
on for hearing yesterday. MefJee am! Hen
dricks ncted as attorney's for the elder, and
being versed somewhat in the law, he ex

dismissed, we hear, at the plaintiff's cost,
but upon what ground we did not 1 'am.
Chief Artcr has lost fifteen dollars a

It will become, the duty of the Health
Oflieer to look under the pier-propped
houses and shops of the cily, us well bs
about them, Scores of buildings stand over
spots of perpetual mould and dampness.
These spots need lime, and as the families
occupying the buildings are, ns a rule, poor,
the city should provide a stock of iimc from
which they may supply themselves.
New testimony in the somewhat cele
brated divorce case of Zanone vs. Zanone,
has been discovered, and tho attorneys of
both parties were before Squire Comings
several hours yesterday, putting it into de
position shape. Clem Jenkins, a colored
niuii, was the witness and if Clem swore
tho truth, (and we say in sorrow and tears!
even young newspaper men "of the name
of Jim," sometilues squeeze good-looking
The Carbondide Free Press pronounces
tho temperance address of Miss Frances E.
YVillnrd, delivered in that city, Inst Thurs
day evening, the granest address of that
kind yet delivered then;, notwithstanding
the lact that the Caiboiulalians had been
singularly fort una to in securing able and
entertaining orators. This is a high compli
ment; but one that is not undeservedly be
stowed. Persons who may wish to add their
mimes to the petition praying the legisla
ture to enact a law giving women over 18
years of age the right to vote on all ques
tions touching the manufacture and sale
of spiritous liquors, can find blanks at the
Reform Club room. The number of names
already obtained exceeds one hundred and
twenty-live thousand, or more than ow
fourth of all the voters of the State.
Collector Hodges has completed his
collecting tour through tho country pre
cincts. He is well satisfied with the re
sultcollected fully as much as is usually
collected on such rounds. From this time
forth he purposes a vigorous raid upon
persons owing personal taxes. The real
estate stands good for itself, but, ton certain
extent, the Sheriff "stands good" for the
taxes on personal property, and he proposes
to take just as few risks us possible.'
The sleek, oily-tongued ling who has
committed scores of petty larcenies about
the city, and has played a dozen difTencnt,
nnd very adruit confidence games upon un
suspecting and sympathetic females this
creature was sjen, yesterday, circulating
among the ladies of the YV. C. T. U. nt the
Reform Club hall. If any purses, watches,
handkerchiefs, gloves or what-nots were
missed by any of the ladies, it is not at all
difficult to conjecture what became of
The spring and .summer suits, in fact
the entire stock of clothing now arriving
at the popular clothing house of A. Marx,
will be found precisely such goods as fully
meet the requirements of this market. He
is an exclusive clothier, nnd, in the market
where he purchases, devotes his attention
to buying clothing, and nothing else. This
has been his business for many years, and it
follows, therefore, that he is always able to
supply his customers with the best ol every
thing, and that, too, at bottom prices.
At the conclusion of the trial between
Elder Shores and Curley Mike, before
Squire Comings, yesterday. Mr. Henry
Devlin, w ho was standing at the oflice en
trance, made a remark touching the trial,
that moved one Kirsch Home, a colored in
dividual, to great anger. He approached
Mr. Devlin, whose fighting days arc over,
nnd gave liini what is denominated, in vul
gar parlance "a good round cursing." Mr.
Devlin, not being able to knock Home
down, took Home up. The trial will come
Mr. Arthur V. Nelson, assistant post
master at Centralis!, has been designated by
the post-ollic ; department at Washington as
the p.-rsou who is to weigh, nnd keep a
record of the weight, of all mail matter
that may reach Centraiia, during the thirty
one days intervening March 19th and Apd
lilth, 180. The object in view is to furn
ish the post-office, department data that will
enable it to form an intelligent estimate of
the cost of tiie mail service. It is done n.s a
preliminary to tho re-letting of mail con
tracts, in June, we believe.
About midnight, night, before last
while Will l'ink was in the act ot passing
Mr. Bristol's gp'.cery store on Eighth street,
he discovered the door standing open, and
thinking that something was wrong ro
turned, and securing the help of Mayor
Winter, set about finding out what was the
matter. While the Mayor was reeonnoit
ering the rear of the premises, a man dashed
out of the open door, and was soon lost in
the darkness. He was in the store, it was
evident, for burglarious purposes; but if
he carried off anything, it was something
thing that has not been missed.
As to the post oflice controversy we
have this to say: When Judge liird dc
dared, ns was the case before Mcfceaig hud
it, that lie didn't, it followed that it was, in
that sense, according to the terms upon
wliich he stated it. Bird being inclined
to resist what it appeared at that time to
take tin: same aspeit as the prior undei
standing, of course McKeaig had nothing
left to do but say so. It was especially
the duty of both of them, wv-ingthe exas
peration he invited, to no it, If not, why

'The chap who sells pocket books, on
tle atrcet corner.-), and givo. to evoiy pur
chaser a set of "Mnddock-','ii!i" shirt studs,
isV genius. He declares that his prime
object is to introduce the jjold, which can
b distinguislii'd-4,'roin tl genuine only
bj the test of chemicals. He represents lift
Kl stern stud lniinufaetorj that employM
three thousand men. Tie sUuU would
be given awiy hut for the tu t that desir
ing persons would accumulate a large
number of them and then sell them
for two dollars a set. Hence he Huddled
the gift of tho studs with the pocket book,
which was "dirt chenp at Jit) cents," ul
though, to introduce the studs, he'd let Yin
go for a quarter. Talking tlms, ho catches
every greeney und blackey within the sound
of his voice who happens to have a quar
ter of a dollar. He then hands over the
pocket book, upon which he makes a profit
of about twenty-three cents, nnd tho set of
studs that cost h'un about seven cents a
hundred. He is a sharper and no mistake.
-If Democrats, who affect the belief
that that portion of tho Republican party
that finds habitation in Cairo, is disrupted,
would learn their mistake, let them nomi
nate a Democratic city ticket. The colored
voters, who now avow such deep-seated re-s-ntmi'tit
who threaten dire retribution
for long suffered neglect, would all walk
up to the Republican rack, vote an tin
scratched Republican ticket, nnd manifest
the same old disposition to lift the scalp of
every colored man in the city, who might
decline to go and "do the same likewise."
The estrangement of the colored voters
isn't skin deep; nnd the Democrat who
banks on any other conclusion is doomed
The Centralia scandal is exciting con
siderable attention. The story came to our
earn last Monday: but hoping that it was
at least greatly exaggerated, we made no
mention of it. It .veins, however, that
much of what was then mere conjecture
has become ugly, damaging facts. The
name of the lecherous music teacher is said
to be Morse, and the number of young la
dies ruined by hiir. is stated at live one of
which lnts irivcn birth to twins. The "iris
belong to the humbler walks of
life, and two of tin in are said to be without
natural protectors. But these facts but add to (
the turpitude of the gray-haired lecherous !
devil's doings. If, among the relatives of
these poor, deceived and deeply wronged
girls, are any men of spirit men worthy of
the name of men, they wiil hound the black
hearted monster upon w hom the ruin of the
girls is charged, until they render him inca
pable of further mischief. In view of Midi
guilt as his the law is impotent. The pro
per punishment suggests itself, and it ought
to be inflicted.
F. M. Ward, the coal and wood nun.
"flings his banner to the breer.o," inscribed
"F. M. Ward for City Treasurer." If it were
not the Usual way of doing things we might
pass Mr. Ward's unnounceiuf nt without
further notice, for it is quite impossible for
Tin-: Bi i.i.KTiN to tell the people anything
about Ward tiny do not know already.
He is a clever, good-hearted man, who has
many friends and few enemies: and as his
life is drvoted to the work of Keeping peo
ple warm in the winter and cool in the sum
mer, we may class him with the publit
benefactors. But like many otlrr hard
working men. Ward is poor, and runs for
the oflice. not because of the distinction it
confers, but for the dollars and cents. The
salary, though comparatively small, will be
a great help to him. This consideration
and the fact that they believe him to be a
deserving man and a useful citizen, will
bring to ids support a large number ,.f our
citizen-, black as well, as white. It can be
pi t down, tor tfie b . Hots w ill verify it. that
Ward will ploy a formidable candidate.
The remark of (ieueial Chalmers on
the floor of Congress, last Friday, that a
vessel full of yellow fever patients., direct
from Rio .laniero, had arrived at New Or
loiin, must be taken with ln.iny grains of
allowance. The discussion had turned up
on the question of establishing ti national
quarantine, and the .tn-r.il knowing the
impetus that fear gives to action, shaped
his argument to tit. the seeming nei esiiii s
of the occasion. But yellow fever in New
Orleans or no yellow fever there, the duty
of the Cairo authorities nnd Cairo people,
is plain and unquestionable. It is to
clean up the cily not to clean up the front
yards and leave the back yards untouched;
not to clean up the out-hoii.vs and leave
the cellars or the foundation enclosures wf
buildings reeking in mould, tilth and
dampness not to do this; but to put the
entire city in the iiit l'ossiui.K sanitauy
condition. This done, and a reasonably
rigid quarantine maintained, it is our hon
est conviction that the yellow fever, let it
devastate the Smith ns it may, need have no
terrors for the people of Cairo.
- The following story was toid to us
y. -terdiiy. by a very reptiiable gentleman,
but as he could not vouch for itscorivctm'hs,
nnd we received no verification of it oIhh
win re, we give it for what it is worth, only
adding, on our own account, that the most
siipii i.nis feature about it is the fact that
ii failed to reach the ears of our policemen.
The tory is to the effect that lifter dark.
Friday night, when Mr. nnd Mrs. Wright,
of Online Island, (who were coming to the
city in a wagon) had reached a point near
the crossJ levee, they were confronted by
two strange men. who p laced a revolver
to each of their heads nnd de
manded their wealth. Mr. Wright
hesitated (so the story goes) but Upon being
told that he would live Just thirty seconds
unless lie "delivered,"- he handed over all
the money he had, which amounted to
nh'iiit twenty dollar". Mrs. Wright was
then ordered to hand over her watch and
chain; but being a woman of spirit, de
clared she would not do so, and they might
kill her if they wanted to. A revolver was
then placed before her eyes, and the watch
rudely snatched from her person. The
scoundrels then hurried off in the darkness,
and were seen no more, and owing to the
darkness Mr. and Mrs. W. say they ure not
sure that they would know tic robbers
should they see them again. And so ends
A subscriber living m Ludlow, Ver
mont, can well imagine how a city, tome
times, might repudiate her railroad bonds;
but it doesn't strike him as "just the thing"
to repudiate, or scale down, such bonds as
those issued to Fox, Howard it Co., for in
ternal improvements. When if is remem
bered that the F. H. & Co. bonds were
issued in payment of street tilling for
hauling sandy soil a half mile or more
at the rate of seventy-two cents a cubic
yard, it becomes quite manifest
that tho city agreed to pay
about two dollars, whereas, in justice,
and equity she would not have paid more
than one. But the question doesn't as
sume rtiat shape. The thing is governed
by the inexorable laws of necessity. The city
might repudiate the whole batch; but she
wants to pay and will pay every dollar she
is able to pay. Her ability in that regard
will be sorely taxed to make gntnl her pro
portion to pay 55 cents, covering accrued
interest, in L'O years; but that much she
will undertake to do, paying one twentieth
of the principal every year. If she suc
ceeds in dung this, everybody who invested
in her bonds will be "made whole," with a
small margin over.
Wc have heard nothing from Judgi
Bird, directly or indirectly. He expected
the seige would prove a protr:-.cti d one, and
it is certainly made unite the less so by the
fact that the Judge was an applicant for a
plae" in the post-oll'ice, and was refused.
It will, therefore, be a difficult matter tor
him to convince the department that he is
I not moved by personal resentment. He.
claims to be wt II fortitied with telling facts;
we know him to b- determined, and think it
quite likely that he will summon influence
to his aid that vt ill compel attention. W
cannot persuade ourselves, however, that
he will be able to accomplish
any tiling, lie: ohi'tiion that AlcKeaig
has not been a conspicuous political lender,
would, if there were anything in "civil s. r
vice retoiin, ' be a virtue, not a fault. That
the duties of the oflice have not received
intelligent attention cannot be urged, for
more efficient men than Everett Munn and
tliciwoSioos wei cunt to be had, and during
Mac's whole term of service they were th.
helps almost the Mile .nanagcrs of t!..-
business. This being true, and In-, confir
mation being of very recent date, W" tak
it that fur the two years to come Mac i
quite securely seated. Aft.-rlhat time, if
Southern Brigadiers do.i't bur-t up tin
liemocratic party, the Cairo postina-ter
will be a Democrat.

"DON'T YOU FOKGETITP
Mr. Kililni l
Let me set nt rights the wrongness of a
little discussion that I havo been cnlle.l
upon to decide, in icgnrd to the. piano now
standing in the High Shuol building. The
questions involcd Were thdsoi "To whom
does Unit -piano belong? Who paid for it?
And for whose heiictlt was it it procured?"
My answer is tills ! That instrument be
longs to the JiK, School room, exclusively ,
It was paid for by ihe exertions of the High
Scliool pupils under Prof. J.urlinglinin'H
ailininistrutioii and by his advice.
It was introduced for the use
of the High School pupil, only, und ( unnot
consistently with common honor, and in
fairness to the original design, be used for
another purpose, or by pupils from another
department of the school.
This fact is so well understood that it
seemed to inn unnecessary to repeat it le. ie.
I do so, only, ut the request of friends, who
feel that this statement is required, now, to
be made public. Your-i Truly,
"OH! WHAT A J I AT!"
Put it aside then, and call on Marx,
the widely known Hatter und Clothier, and
get one of his stylish Broadway Silk Hats,
manufactured to order. He is the only
man in the city who is supplied with a
confornntor. He can take voiir measure.
and in short order supply you with a nicely
fitting, stylish hat, ut a figure ,) low that it
will surprise you.
