Tho sick man who was curried to the
hospital, yesterday, at once became a ense
of yellow fever, and the alarm washurricdly
spread all over the city. Well, it wasn't n
case of yellow fever. The fellow had been
on u terrible Fpree, and three or four days
ago was attacked by a violent diarrhea that
soon run him ' down to a mere skeleton.
And that's what's the matter with him.
Under tho resolution ot the Board of
Health, Mayor Thistlcwood yesterday ap
pointed the following named persons to
serve as mounted guards, to assist in the
enforcement of our quarantine measures, to-
wit: James II. English, James Sullivan,
Pat Lally, Stephen Bradley, Patrick Cal
lahan, John Olndney, John McEwen and
Morris Sullivan. This is a movement in
tho right direction proper and encourag
ing. John Adams, tho red-haired white boy
who was jailed about two mouths ago,
charged with stealiiig forty-two dollars in
money from a Texan then in tho city, wa9
turned loose yesterday. The Texan failing
to put in an appearance to prosccuto his
case, and there being no other witness
against tho accused, tho States' Attorney
uollied the indictment, and tho court order
ed the defendant discharged.
Gradually and most happily, we think,
the yellow fever excitement iu Cairo is dy
ing out. There are two good and sufficient
reasons for this. After the lapse of nearly
twenty days, tho fever hns not spread be
yond tho limits of Memphis. Tho towns
that suffered so terribly last year, us well as
all other portions of the South, have
escaped, altogether, notwithstanding the
CAIRO . BUJULJSTin:
.n, f crowds of Memphis refugees,
Another assuring cause, la a noticeable In
crease in the efficiency of our quarantine.
Much complaint still exists on this score,
but the past two or three days have reveal
ed a very decidod improvement. Our peo
ple know that tho scourge can be kept out
of Cairo, and had the quarantine been of a
character to inspire confidence, we should
have rclt but little excitement.
A correspondent ot the Chicago Times
describes the murder of Carter Newman, at
the hands of Charley Glas3, as follows:
"A few steps brought him to Newman's
bedside, aud in a few seconds more the
poll of the axe crushed through the sleep
ing man's skull, and buried itself midway
between the eyes, In his brain." What's
to be dono now, with all those fellows who
swore that the axe was buried in (ho back
of the victim's head? j
Every citizen who feels gloomy or at
all anxious should be among the first in the
park this evening. The K. M. K. C's pro'
gramme embraces a fino display of fire
works, music and dancing, and a walking
match that promises to be a most animated
contest. Competition in the match is re
stricted to citizens of Cairo. The jndges
will be selected by the Mystic Krew, and
overything will be conducted In, the most
orderly and harmonious manner. Attend,
then, and tor the evening at least shake off
your cares and enjoy yourself.
In those localities known ai the "in
fected spots," not a pound or quirt of any
kind of disinfectant has yet been usedl
Tho work of sanitation moves along most
sluggishly, although we are neadng the 1st
day of August. The cleaning ut of foul
sewers and cess pools under a burning July
sun is ot very doubtful propriety. To dis
infect with lime, coal tar or copperas, is
always in order. But if anything in this
way has been dono, we should like to
know when and where! It is certainly not
visible to the naked eye.
On the first "counting ot nose9" after
retiring to consider of their verdict, the
members of the jury in the Glas3 case stood
ten for hanging and two for penitentiary
for life. These two were half white and
half black. They didn't pretend to mam
tain their position by argument, but
thought the end and aim of the law would
be accomplished by putting the accused
out of the way for life. The' colored man
yielded first, and the white man in about
half an hour afterwards. At the end of
about two hours the jury returned into
court with a verdict of guilty.
Two or three of our barbers complain
that the cut down in prices has operated
most disastrously on the business. It has
failed to increase the number of customers,
they say, and has had no other effect than
to lessen the income about one-third. They
all agree, however, that if kept busy, they
could make money even at tho reduced
rates. But, n9 they work less than one-half
their actual time, thetnoney on hand at the
end of the week is not enough to cover or
dinary out-goes. Hence the conclusion has
been formed that if the number of Cairo
barbers is not lessened soon by emigration
it will bo lessened by failures.
Mayor Thistlcwood has issued his
procaimation warning all persons, whether
in the management of railroads or steam
boats, or otherwise, that they will be rigor
ously prosecuted for the violation of any of
the sanitary laws of the State of Illinois,
of the ordinances ot the city of Cairo or of
the rules nnd regulations of the Cairo
Board of Health. There is a manifest de
termination to keep Memphis refugees out
of the city, and as our city is now well pro
tected, persons who may bring such refu
gees into the city can scarcely escape de
tection. Refugees found within the cor
poration will be sent out.
All the spare beds, spare rooms and
accomodations bf all the farmers houses
along the line of nil three ot our Illinois
railroads, have bcoen hired, conditionally
by Cairo people. At the first intimation of
fever in Memphis a number of our citizens,
wrote or went in person up the Narrow
gauge, Cairo and Vinceunes r.nd Illinois
Central, some to the distance of thirty
miles, to engage quarters to occupy, should
the yellow fever break out in Cairo. And
in doing this they betrayed good bcdsc and
prudent forethought. Nothing tends more
to allay excitement and anxiety than the
kunwlcdgc these persons hare that when
occasion may require a getting out of town,
they have comfortable quarters to which
tiicy can repair at pleasure. By the ex
ercise of such prudent forethought all oc
casion for panic, hurry, uncertainty and
confusion, arc provided against.
A PLEA FOR GLASS.
Cairo, July 21th, 1879.
To tho Editor or tUo Bulletin:
I was somewhat astonished to find in
The Bulletin, ot this morning, that tho
jury in the Glass murder case hud brought
in a verdict of guilty, and -that the unfor
tunato man would bo sentenced to death
to-dny. Wlmtcvcr influenced them to this
extraordinary course I cannot see. For ten
years the law which prescribes the death
penalty for murder, has been practically a
dead letter, and has been enforced but once
in that time, and it is a little odd that tho
victim was also colored; or is tho law only
operative when colored men commit mur
der! It Glass deserves death, how is it that
none of tho dozen white murderer, in tho
last twenty years huvo been pui.Uhod.
Many of them gave their victims as little
time to prepare for death and weic equally

that if Glass was a white man and his
victim a colored man, he would not now
stand condemned, but would be a free man.
And if he has any friends who will Interest

tion to the Governor to commute his sen
tence to imprisonment for life, I am certain
it will be signed by all lovers of

ED DOESN'T WANT RELIGION "STUFFED
AT HIM THROUGH THE GRATINGS,' AND
HOLDS A MAN AS A "POOR STICK" WnO
"GOES BACK" ON HIS VICTUALS.
On Wednesday evening a jury of his
countrymen found Charles Glass, the negro
who killed Carter Newman, guilty of mur
der, and declared that ho should suffer the
penalty of death.. The doomed man re
ceived the verdict with an air of indiffer
ence, maintaining the sullen, morose mood,
which is evidently characteristic with him.
Removed to the cell, he was sound asleep
in less than thirty minutes.
Yesterday morning our reporter visited
him in his cell, and was surprised at the
change the intervening twolve hours had
worked in the fellow's feelings and bear
ing. He had divested himself of all his
clothing except his drawers, and was pac
ing the floor of the cell, fanning himself
vigorously with a palm leaf.
Reporter "Well, Charley, how do you
feel, now that you know what is in store for
you!" . ,
Glass "I don't feel no different from
what I allcrs felt."
Reporter "Don't you feel any regrets
for having killed Newman?"
Gloss "No, I don't. I think I done
right. He was all the time a
runnin' over me, and abusing me. He was a
better man than I am, and I was all the
time afraid he'd do me hurt. He wouldn't
leave, and a bullying of me and beaten and
threatenenof me, and right in my own
house, was raore'n any man ought to
bear. I didn't intend to kill him, when I
struck him ; but to hurt him so he'd let me
alone. But I did kill him, and now I ain't
sorry for it "
Reporter "Are you satisfied with your
Gloss "No. They didn't tell the truth.
Now which ought to be believed ; the story
that lawyer Mulkey told, or the story that
lawyer Black told? Ruth Brown and Mrs.
McFadden and Ellen McKerney all swore
to what they knowed wasn't true. They
warall'aginst me, and now they think
they've got my life, I reckon they're satis

Glass "No, I didn't get in all my side.

pair of brass knucks, and heard him say he

Reporter "Well, why didn't you have
him brought in?-'
Glass (insolently) "That's best known

ing up: "I say, boss, ain't you got nothin'
to gimme no tobacco nor nothin'?"
Reporter "Glass, how's your appetite?
Can you do justice to your meals?" x
Glass "Appetite! why I could eat with
a loaded shot gun in my mouth I It's a
mighty poor stick of a man that goes back
on his grub, all along of a little trouble.
No sir, there's uo discount on my eatin', nor
Reporter "Don't you feel inclined to
look at your condition seriously? Isn't it
your desire that the preachers should visit
Glass "Well, grounin'and gropin' won't
help nothin'. The preachers can come, if
they like. But I don't sec no use," said he,
Hipping his fingers in the opening of the
grated door "of comiu' here and pokin'
religiod at me through them holes" and
the fellow laughed most heartily.
He seemed to be unusually communica
tive, laughing boisterously at times, and
showing an animation that could scarcely
have been increased hail he won tho capital
prize In the Louisiana lottery, instead of a
verdict that sends him to the gallows.
In reply to o her party, he
said he thought tho ve.uict a "little rough".
Ho did right when ho kliled Newman, he
said; but still ho would have compromised
tho matter by taking two years in the pen

Being asked if he wouldn't have accepted
five years, ho promptly answered that he
would not that five years would have been

inconsistently, "nobody's so hard on nig.
