to our Cairo teachers. Of the priucipal

tone and character to the school, we can
say no less than that they have perlormed
their respective duties well, aud to the gen
eral satisfaction of our people. They have
shown themselves zealous workers, and
given tx Cairo a school that is everywhere
recognized as among the best of tho
Tho graduating exercises in tho High
School, to-day, have wry sensibly 'been
postponed until 8 o'cltyk this evening.
By that hour tho walls ot the building will
havo cooled, and ns the room is sus
ceptible of very thorough vciitillution no
one need deprive himself or herself the
pleasure of attending through any appre
hension of excesive heat. The graduating
class is composed of tho following named
pupils; Misses Anna B. Goldstine, Jennie
E. Johnston, Mary B. Taylor, Oracio E. Ar-
tcr.'jCarricC. Hawkins Haftio M. McKec,
Anna B. Perce, and master Max Black.
The present scholastic year of the
Cairo public schools closes this afternoon.
In selecting teachers the Board and Princi
pal very properly considered tho claims of
homo talent, and gavo employment to quite
a number of young ladies resident of the
city. Their year's work having Wn
brought to n closo It Is due to them to say
that the reputation of the school has not
suffered among Its patrons because of their
connection with it, nor has its standard of
general excellence been towered, It was
not expected that they would bo thorough
disciplinarians; but their general avorago
was so good, that we feel constrained to ex
tend to them The Bulletin's hearty com
mendation. The Cairo and St, Louis railroad com
pany is substituting new tics for the old
ones, and getting the track iu very good
condition, along the whole route. Tho
present management promises to work out
the complete success of tho Narrow-gauge,
despite tho difficulties it has had to con
tend with. Tho road Is economically
managed, and the steady increase of pat
ronage indicates a friendly feeling on the
part of the people along the route, as well
as a healthy development of the country.
The wind performed rather a queer
prank in Budcr's jewelry store. Finding
its way into tho front door it formed an eddy
or whirl-wind in the show window, and hus
tled the contents of the window about in a
manner that betrayed an utter attempt for
consequences. The various articles, some of
them broken and otherwise damaged, were
finally collected in a corner, where the
playful breeze, as if irritated at its inabil
ity to further move them, gave them a
spiteful diff and then subsided. The dam
age sustained by Mr. Buder was not seri
ous. From Mr. Sam Steele whose hermitage
is in tho shady interior of Pulaski county,
wo learned, yesterday, that tho storm of tho
night previous played havoc with the
wheat crops. Some fields have been com
pletely flattened, and the heads being full
there is no probability that the gram will
regain a perpendicular. As one of the
consequences it will be impossible to intro
duce a reaper, and even a hand-cradle will
be used to great disadvantage, if it can be
used at all, Mr. Steele says the crop of
wheat is certainly the finest ever grown in
Last fall one of our physicians pre
dicted that we would have no yellow
fever in Cuiro, this year; but that there
would be considerable sickness in the way
of bilious fevers, bilious diarrhea, and
probably cholera. The prevalence of diar
rhea at this time is undeniable, and to that
extent the prediction has been verified.
There is also considerable bilious fever.
Should the cholera come, by and by, we
will then have a full verification of tho
prediction. But better all the ailments
named, although of double their present
virulence, than a half dozen cases of yel
Five or six small boys assailed a Ger
man teamster yesterday, and pelted him
quite vigorously with clods aud every other
sort of missile that was conveniently ac
cessible. As this was the second or third
time the German had been attacked in like
manner he leaped from the wagon and made
after the boys. Young Whittaker was
among the boys, but as he had thrown no
clods, he didn't feel called upon to run
with the others, and stood his ground. The
irate German believing Whittaker guilty,
jumped upon him and thumped him quite
severely. The real culprits escaped punish
-Tlte Fisk and Champion left Paducah,
yesterday morning, and both of them are
credited with vary respectable running
ability. The Champion proved herself the
swifter boat, however, as she made more
landings than the Fisk, and is credited
with from twenty to twenty-five minutes
the anvantage on her arrival at Cairo. We
hope the commanders of both boats will
soon appreciate the necessity for getting
along with the least possible uniouut of
racing. It tney manage to get along wim-
out any they will hear no remonstrances
from their patrons.
The wind and storm of Wednesday
night seems to have swept over a large
scope of country, causing more or less dam
age everywhere. At Mound City the tin
roof of the Union block was turned up like
a scroll at least Sam Steele says so and
tho woods and orchards in every direction
tell ot fierce breezes. In the leveling of
the uncut wheat the farmers of the county
suffered the most serious injury. A portion
of the roof of Leo Kleb's building, in the
block at the corner of Twelfth and Com
mercial, in this citv. was torn off; one of
the wharf-boats was blown quite tightly oh
the bank; the M. C. transfer tow-boat was
blown aground and had to be tugged off,
and considerable commotion was created
among the shipping generally (but owing to
the direction of tho wind there were no se
rious mishaps at the landing.
We have watched the St. Louis papers
with a view of learning something of tho
achievements of tho Cairo horse, Harlem;
but all too no purpose. We find allusion
to Harlem's break, and its consequences.
From the St. Louis Republican, of yester
day, we learn that Harlem was entered for
the fourth nice of tho day, a handicap for
all ages, with a purse of $W0, and $j:iO for
tlie second, ami .n ior tuo num. roois on
this race sold, during tho previous evening
at fM on Buckshot, tho favorite, down, to
$4 on Harlem, the lowest. This must not
bo taken, however, as o safe indic ium ot
how the contest is likely to terminate; as
betters or investors ou horse races are
subjected to more surprises than any other
class of men who hazard money on events
that are left to future determination, it
sometimes happens thut "tho last comes
first." The weight assigned to Harlem for
tho race of yesterday, was 83 pounds,
Ik there Is anything In tho "survival of
thu fittest" Dr. Bull's Baltimore Pills must
) "counted In;" they Imva lived long a!uj
do better work than ever.

MODESTL'B ASKS THAT THE LAW AND PUBLIC
SENTIMENT HOLD MALE AND FEMALE
PROSTITUTES EQUALLY GUILTY AND RE
SPONSIBLE. Editor Bulletin:
Having seen and heard enough to assure
me that my first communication' has not
been void of good effect, I feel that it is a
duty I owe to tho cause of good morals to
write you again,
Since no one, white or black, denies tho
presence of an epidemic of lewdness among
the young colored women of Cairo, I need
not devote a single paragraph to that branch
of my subject; but may, at once, enter into
a consideration of the details and conse
quences. While it is true that in'ante-bellutn times,
female slaves were encouraged to fruitful
ness, (the increase being the slave
holders' chief profit) it is not
true, as stated by one ot your
correspondents, that slavery taught lewd
ness or encouraged prostitution. The
young women were hurried into pairiug off
ormairiage, as it was called; but as prosti
tution or miscellaneous carnal commerce
served to defeat fruitfulness, it was not on
ly deprecated, but punished by the master.
Hence I assume that the "tainted-llood"
argument cannot shield the guily from the
moral responsibility that attaches to their
crimes. But granting everything that is
urged in palliation or justification of the
lewdness complained of, we arc still left,
face to face, with a wide-pervading sin
which it is our duty to denounce, and hold
up as odious in the sight of both God and
I have in my miud's eye as I write a hard
working colored girl who is the mother of
two illegitimate children, and is about to
become the mother of a third, and a mar
ried man is the father of all of them. The
poor girl can no longer obtain work
as a domestic servant because ol tnc in
cumbrance her children form; and the dirty
dog of a father has never helped her to the
extent of one nickel. The girl knows- that
she surrendered her body to a married
man; knows that he could help her if he
would, and yet, 'though often feeling the
pangs of hunger and abject want, she per
sistently refuses even to apply to him for
help, foolishly protesting that "she can
take care of her own children." Such
women should be driven to measures of
"self-protection." I do not speak unad
visedly when I say that of the scores of
colored girls in the city who carry ilegiti
mrte children In their arms, not more than
one in twenty receives any help whatever
from the fathers of the children. While
they are working like slaves, over wash-
tubs and cooking stoves to provide for the
maintenance of their young ones,
tho fathers, white and black, may be found
laughing and joking about their achieve
ments, perhaps: but never a cent do they
give to mother or off-spring! It is to pro
test against hoggish brutality like this, as
well as against the crime of lewdness, that
these communications are written. Having
succeeded in moving one colored woman
to "strike for her rights," I am not without
hopes that dozeus aud scores of others will
be influenced to resort to the law to compel
their partners in crime, be they black or
white, to assist in providing for the issue of
their criminal conduct. Tho law has re
lief tor the mother, prostituted though she
be, and she is toolish as well as prostituted,
so long as she refuses to seek that relief.
As to tho duties of our authorities in this
regard, I have said but little. But I
now say that homethino must be done to
teach bolh the men and women that their
conduct is debasing, beastly, and violative of
all law, both human and divine. The
unmarried woman who transgresses he law,
must be made to feel the enormity of her
conduct, and the guilty man, be ho white
or black, should bo pursued with even
"My brother" (said a negro girl, the
other day) "has got children all over this
town, and ho don't help support never a
one of them." The law and the moral tone
of the community should compel that "my
brother" to work twenty hours out of tho
twenty-four, if necessary, to support those
children ''all over this town" hold him cs
a human beast, and his partners in iniquity
as social out-casts, until restored by virtu
ous and honest lives. Modestcs.
