A Cairo lady direct lroin Memphis is
credited with the report that a number of
deaths from "black-vomit" occured in the

that she, Ii. coming alarmed, shortened her

ol any sickness or t wis caraeter lm been
made in the Memphis papers, no alarm ex
ists; railroad and river men from that
quarter every day, make no mention nf the

inclined to think, therefore, that the lady's
fears have been unduly operated upon.

may seem a little ambiguous to tho general

Mr. Ilrauer, of Metropolis, has given
out that, on Monday next, the Cairo young
folks will be cordially welcomed to n par
ticipation in a ball which lie will give, on
tho evening of that day, at his residence.
Quite a number, of our lads and lassies
have avowed u purpose to
attend, and to accommodate
them, the tug Ariadne will leave our land

tropolis aliout supper time. The occasion is.
one that excites lively anticipations of en
joyment. During the progress of the dance oh
the Citv of Greenville, Saturday night,
Miss Mollie Clark, of Missouri, fell over in
a fainting tit, and sometime elapsed before
she was restored to consciousness. Dr.
Dunning was railed, and found the young
lady so much prostrated tint he forbade
her removal from the boat during the niy;ht.
Accordingly she remained on board until
Sunday morning, lady friends kindly
watching by her side until daylight, when
she was sAifliciently recovered to be remov

One of the most shot king accidents of
the season, was that which occurred last
Saturday at llartleson's mill, at a locality
known as Oaktown. William Morris, who
is a nephew of Mr. Webster, one of the own
ers of the mill, was acting in the capacity
of sawyer. He was thus engaged w hen a
portion of a slab or jagged piece of timber
was thrown from the log with great vio
lence, and strikiii!' Mr. Morris in the
stomach tore its way through into the cav

short time. Mr. Morris was highly esteemed

Captain Uoyton has been here is

such a hurrah. After al , what mote does

elsewhere, is a "bad one.'' Severil nights
ago he beguiled h drunken man vi the vi

him of the few dollars he had flwuit his
person, pushed him oft' his feet and left
him. A couple of icgro men concmplated
the transaction from the shadow- of a con-re-lent
building, and as r. .McCoy was
about lo move away, they collared him,
and compelled him to divide. A dispute
arose between the negroes about the ine
quality f shares, and several blows were
exchanged. The negmeH thinking they
hud done a sharp thing in compelling JJc
Coy to divide, told it to their friends as a
"joke on Mr. Mack Me.," but when assured
that they had rendered themselves parti

A Democratic majority of 2V2 votes, in a
contest wherein the Republican party set
agencies at work that are not to be feared
in the contest pending. The election ot
1178 resulted somewhat more favorably for
the Democracy. Assuming that one-third
of the 2SO0 Greenb:u'k voles thrown were
thrown by men who h id previously acted with
the Republican party, and we have a Dem
ocratic majority in the circuit of about
900 votes. As far a our observation and
inquiries enable us to judge, we feel s ite in
saying that four out of every five men who
voted with the (ireenbackcrs last fall, had
previously acted with the Deiii'Tratic party
and w ill do so again in the absence of a
ticket of their own. Hut. cipher it up any
way you may, we can't figure out a Demo
cratic "w.tlk over" nor will it be safe to
sit down and confidently count upon a
Democratic victory as a inal'ei of course.
We will elect two of the Judges if we work.
Otherwise we shall probably have to con
