needless to add (hat the Athencum will be

seats should secure them in udvance.
Tin? House Committee on Appropiia
tions in our General Assembly, have rec
ommended the allowance of flj).")! to the
city of Cairn to re-iinbtirse her for moneys
expended in fencing the yellow fever out of
the city and out of the State of Illinois.
The city kept the enemy at bay, but md
without loss of good soldiers. Hence I lien
is nol, we take it, in the whole Slate of
Illinois, a single fair-minded man who will
say that Cairo's claim should not be
paid. If there is, he is a small-souled cr t -tnre
worthy of no one's heed.
-Captain Roy ton arrived ut Louisville
Sunday, got into the "Suck" of the fails,
turned fourteen hundred somesaults he fore
reaching Portland, and was there picked up
and oiiinibiissed back to Louisville, where
he wtis lionized. As he is traveling at
about the rate of six miles an hour h will
come floating into Cairo, before many days
pass by, and we won't, all of us, be on the
Levee to see. Wc desire to say here, lest
we forget it, that any reports that may get
abroad to the effect that Justus Cunningham
has declined to make the reception speech,
will not be warranted.
-Some fellow having an uncontrollable
penchant for s -cond hand hardware, en
tered Mrs. I'ribach's frame building, oppo
site the court house, and removed the lock
from one of tin-front doors; then pa-sing
up stairs he removed the locks from two
other doors, and carried off all three of
them. It may be that he believes that
everybody elstf is what he knows himself
to be, and wants to but his property under
lock and key : or it may lie that it was
simply a desperate resort to supply himself
with whisky money. The occupant of the
building is expecting him toreturn to carry
off the doors.
There tire not two dozen white Repub
licans iu Cairo who do not b'-lieve that
Judge liird will be "bought off" of Colonel
McKeitig's track, by the ti nder of an office.
These Republicans understand Republican
nature better than we do, perhaps; but
when Judge 1'ird solemnly and publicly de
clared that there was no gift that
could buy him, we believed
him. It was charged in the meeting at the
courthouse, that Col. McKenig had said
that all the negroes were purchasable. The
Colonel denied the charge; but Judge Rird
denounced it r.s a slander upon his race.
If, in the face of nil this, the Republican
prediction that he;will be bought out, shall
be vcrihed, who shall then suy that the race
was slandered1 Rut. we repeat, wc don't
believe the Judge will s -11 himself.

that we know personally or by reputation,

value the legal ability and personal merits
of any of them, when we insist that Judge
Mulkey is the fittest man among them to
sit in the s'-at so lately vacated by Sidney
Rrecsc. In him aiu aggregated all the es

honest Judge: and th" voters of tin; South

- Seeing the Chief-of-Police seated in a
carriage, yesterday, beside a negro woman,
we felt much inclined to rally our Hour

A little inquiry assured us, however, that it
was not an ".iinour" iu which the Chief
was indulging; but a little work iu the
line of duty. The woman, Caroline Lewis,
was crazy, and the Chief found strategy
and deception necessary in managing her.
Seeing the Sherilf approaching, he re
marked to his charge Hint there

While it was true that the woman's mind
was considerably unbalanced, and harbored
strange fancies that the lawyers of the city

life, it was shown that thoughtless mid mis
chievous persons had persistently played
unon her fears, and thin made her worse
than otherwise she would have been, flic

of unstudied neglect.

This was no doubt a necessity, and all

been in vain. The places from which the
germs of disease could emanate are still
numerous; but one of the diitiest, becat'.-e
one of the busiest streets in the city, is
Kighth street between the avenues, the
south side of which always resembles the

Last summer the health filler's attention
Was called to the state of th" sewer; but
bet mid levelling the bed of the gutter noth
ing was doii". A few days ago our present
health officer was also iishe I to r ni'-'ly
the nuisance; but he seems to bell 'Ve that
it is the duty of the occupants t the prop
erty in front of which the gutter runs to
keep it in proper condition and that the
paying of street taxes does not exempt
them from that duty. Relieving this he
served written notices upon die respective
parties last Saturday evening, requesting
the abatement of the nuisance within
To have complied with this request would
have necessitated the breaking of the Sab
bath and, as the vegetable matter could
not be removed without making excava
tions a violation also of sec. 5-, of chapter
5, of the city ordinances.
Under present circumstances it is ulmo .t
impossible to prevent the accumulation of
offal in front of the vegetable stores on
Fighth street, and it it is not tie- health
other's duly to abate the evil in the ely
way in which it can be abated, viz: by re
pairing the gutter and sewers, it is to le
hoped that the drainage committee and the
jailor will speedily comply with snc. s on
page til of the city ordinances.
