to convenient saw mills, or stolen direct by

Quite a respectable crowd gathered at
the Reform club room, last night, notwith
standing the attractions elsewhere. Mat
ters were given an excellent start by eight
persons going forward, putting down their
names as members of the club, and taking
the red ribbon. Very pleasant speeches
were then made by President Williams
Ex-President Barclay and others, and, at
an e.tvly hour, the meeting adjourned.
Itisimpossibleforsome men to look be
yond their immediate surroundings. We
have un exemplification of this in the anx

certain candidates, for no other conceivable
reason, but the fact that their immediate
neighbors will vote far them. It these
parties would step out of their immediate
circle they would discover that nine men
out of every ten are hostile to the very
men upou whose election they feel inclined
to stake all they have or can borrow.
The married ladies of the city are be
coming deeply interestctl in the election,
and some of them in their efforts to intluenee

The case under the civil rights law
between one Dr. McArthur and ('apt. Tay
lorofthe steamer Fisk. came on for a prelim
inary hearing, yesterday, before Commis
sioner Candee. The cause of the complaint
is this, that Capt. Taylor, taking or mistak
ing Dr. McArthur for a negro, would not
permit him to occupy a seat at the general
table. Dr. McArthur is of a
complexion that would, in the opinion of
nine persons out of t"n, justify Cuptain
Taylor's conclusion; but the Doctor claims
that he is of Scotch Spanish extraction and
has not a drop a negro blood in bis reins.

-Captain Boyton was greeted by crowds
of people along the entire route to Mem
phis. The banks of the river on either
side were fairly alive with curious, eager
humanity, watching out for his coming;
and at night time great bonfires blazed
upon the banks at intervals of a mile or
two, in the expectation that the wonderful
navigator would bring himself within
their glare. At Columbus a large crowd
gathered, and as the Captain neared the
wharf a brass band struck up "Hail to the
Chief," as a signal of welcome, But the
Cuptain merely answered by elevating his
our, and giving a blast or two ou his trum
pet. The current being rapid he soon shot
out of sight, leaving the Culunibusitcs, and
especially people who had ridden miles to
see the show, somewhat out of humor over
the response given to their proffered honors
The interest that has been maintained
in the cause of temperance in Cairo, and the
zeal and success that has characterized the
efforts to maintain the reform organization
in our our midst, are quite as wonderful as
tin y are gratifying. When the movement
was inaugurated among us, it was thought,
even by those who were most active in for
warding it, that it would prove a mere
wave of enthusiasm that would find its
level in a few months, leaving here and
there, in the reformed condition ot a citizen,
a pleasant reminder of what had been.
But the enthusiasm has not died out. Dull
and prosy and thread bare as temperance
speeches are held to be, no occasion, having
a moral tendency, calls out such rousing
crowds of men and women, a. the an
nouncement that somebody, citizen or out
sider, known or unknown, is booked for a
temperance speech. This condition of af

the opportunities und temptations to
drink, are more numerous than almost
anywhere else in the country, is certain
ly a most surprising result -made none
the less so by the remark that h-s than t"n
per cent of the five hundred persons who

Kditor Cuin. Liilleliii:
Dkak Sik: Please allow me a short
space in your inestimable paper to correct
some mistakes that "Practical" in your
issue of the 10th instant, is evidently tailor
ing under. To begin with, "Beatrice" did
not intend by her "moralizing half cynical
tirade," (as "Practical" chooses to term it)
on the Despotism of Fashion, that appeared
in your columns, to insinuate that the lady
readers of Tiik Bi 1.1. Ki ts arc composed ex
clusively or even largely of the class much
given to fashioinble follies. Now, while "Be
atrice" is willing and glad to give all honor
In the noble and sensibly dressed ladies who
larg'dy compose the society ot our Mult
eity, still it is quite impossible for her to
attend the house of (iod - or evening's en
tertainment, or even to stay at home and
look out of her window, without see
ing very much in the way iif fashionable
absurdities of dress, to deplore. It is this
class that she w ould "cry aloud" to and not
to the blessed women who have striven and
are still striving to bring about the sorely
needed reform in dress, nor to the poor
hard working class who could not, if they
would, indulge in fashionable extrava
gances. "Again "Practical" takes exception to the
proposition of "Beatrice" "that, women
cease to clamor for the rights of woman
suirrage and devote tuWe of their time and
talents in making war against Ihe gigantic
and almost oinnipotuni tyrant Fashion;"
and asks, "does this 'Beatrice' of ours
know that the very women who clamor the
loudest nnd strive the hardest for woman
suffrage have brought about Hiid establish
ed the dress reform movement here as else
where if .'Beatrice' my be aware of this fact
und Is perfectly willing to give all 'honor
to whom honor is due' hut nevertheless she
begs leave to whisper in 'Praetical's' ear
that it is 'Beatrice's' opinion" (and she re
peats it wilh ull tint! deference lo those
noble workers) that had those very same
'strong-minded women" have taken upturn
against the fashionable monstrosity of dress
and fought nnd labored zealously for dress
reform alone unconnected with the duestion
of woman sutTr.i'je they might hav necm,; 1
pUshed a great deal more in this large field
for labor than they have already done
might even by this time have brought about
such a general and decided reform in dress
thnt men, generally speaking, would have
regarded them as a class some
thing better than mere insipid
dolls of Fashion whose highest
ambition is to be petted and carresscd and
allowed to spend all the money they want,
clothe themselves in the height of fashion
and pass their time in the pursuit of selfish
gratification; and men having formed a
higher estimate of women would conse
quently have been more ready to have ac
corded to her the right of suffrage when
the time was ripe for them to claim it.
One thing more, my dear Practical, and
I have done. You say you would give your
best hut to know how this modern 'Beatrice'
"spends her time, dresses her hair and per
son." You shall know without the forfeit.
"Beatrice" spends most of her time in look
ing after her household, trying to train her
children, doing such small good for her
fellow creatures, as she, in her human
weakness may be able to accomplish;
never neglecting to try to sow good seed
wherever she may find ground sufficient for
so doing, leaving the result to a higher
power, in short living up to uku highest
conceptions of liht.
In regard as to how she dresses hair,
suffice it to say that she docs not wear
it "banned" nor neither docs she
dress her per-oii with dresses which
trail a yard or more ou ihe Ihs.r or climr
to her form with a clotness xsitive!y in
delicate, drawn back bv some strange at
tachment behind, which fetters every move
ment. Thanking wm. Mr. Editor, for kindly
allowing me space, I remain yours most

I will try to profit by the snubbing you
gave "Oid Trim" and withhold my opinions
on politics and religion since thoe .subjects
are tabooed to your correspondents, though
I mu-t say in the depths of my inner con
seiotisut it is hard on 11? not to be ubowed
to express ourselves on stlbj 'cts so often

either. So there, now !
Pclhaps the bread-eaters who read Till,

wheat fields in Pulaski county are growing
beautifully u'reen and give promi;e of over

could see only an occasional wheat field in
this county ;uow such fields ur"to In- found
on every farm running all the w ay from the
five acre lot which the owner cuts with his
cradle." ii. to tic three or four hundred
acres, harvested with the latest improved
machinery. In this viciui'y more attention
is .aid to the growing of small Iruits and
vegetable than ever before, though such
things tire not the staples as at Villa Bulge.

here and there a new house or liani. may be

On Monday of last week, the fiftieth birth
day of the Bartleson twins, William and
Robert, was celebrated by a family reunion
at the In. use of William, which is charm
ingly situated at Grand Chain Landing on
the Ohio. There were present six brothers
with their wives, and two sisters and their
husbands, together with a large number of
children and grand children belonging to
the several families. One brother in Mis
sour ami another in Kansas, were unable to
attend. The twins, who arc quite grey,
still resemble each other su much that their
friends often mistake one for the other. I
have been told that their mother was often
unable to distinguish them, even after they
This large family came to this neighbor
hood when the country was covered by
dense forests, only broken by jiii occasional
path which led to some pioneer's cubin, and
while enduring privations incidental to life
in a new country, all lived to reach the age
of manhood and womanhood. It was then
twenty miles to the nearest doctor, which
may possibly account for this longevity.
Then, too, they grew up useful
