Quito unnecessarily, wo think, the prices

the digging up of old crosswalks, cleaning

healthy male law breaker could be made to

There remain, in the city ns many as a
half dozen forward, urazen-faced negro men
who continue to thrust their services upon
countrymen who bring in apples, potatoes,
etc., resell from wagons. Thcv succeed in
convincing the countrymen that they are
authorized hawkers; and sometimes leave
the impression that they enjoy the exclu
sive right to sell by means of oral advertis
ing. They form an insufferable nuisance,
and many fur.iil.ies will not buy from coun
trymen who give them employment. They
do nothing the countryman might not do
as well or better himself, but have the im
pudence to exact for their services from ten
to twenty per cent of the entire amount
their employers realize for their loads.
--Tho following story from Columbus
reaches us via of Clinton, the Democrat of
which place says: "About the first of Sep
tember Barney Leller was arrested in Colum
bus on the charge of attempting a rape upon
the person of a little colored girl, less than
twelve years old. lie had an examining
trial in Columbus and was sent before the
grand jury of the circuit court then in ses
sion. The jury rendered an indictment
against Leller on the testimony of the little
girl, the accused being unable to procure
tiny rebuhl evidence. The case was not
tried owing to sonic technicality of the law,
and Lejler was committed to jail until the
next term ol the court, next March, he be
ing unable to give the required bond. It
has been developed, within the past ten days
that the charge of rape was a job "put up"
on Leller; that he was not guilty of any such
attempt. This, we understand, is proven by
the little girl who was procured to testify to
his guilt in the first instance. If this be
true, and it is generally accepted as true by
the citizens of Columbus, so we nre credibly
informed, it is grossly unjust to longer con
fine Leller, and we trust steps will be taken
by those whosd duty it is to attend to itti
procure his release.''

and beyond till other subjects, the people of
Cairo will, if they are wise unto their own
good, place the subject of public health.
Despite the agencies at work all around us
to produce sickness, and despite our own
negligence of tho laws of health', no city on
either river presents a more robust popula
tion than the city of Cairo. That a differ
ent line of action on our part the pursu
ance of a well devised hygienic system,
would have produced better results, and
rendered our city the healthiest point be
tween Pittsburgh and New Orleans, wo hnvo
many reasons for believing and few for
doubting. And now that the public health,
or the adoption of means for its preserva
tion, Is about to become a live topic among
us, may we not hope that those who have
"notions of their own" respecting tho . mat
ter, will permit us to vcntillnto thoso no

Bl'llkti2'. Another "committee of Ten"

that it will be grateful for all hints and sug
gestions touching the subject it has in
charge, come from whence they may AVc
asic lor correspondence under that head. If
tho correspondent will give us tho "skele
ton" of his or her notions wo will ,ry and
put it in presentable shape. Wo dont ask
that tho discussion bo limited to the period

distribution of coal tar and other disinfect

OUR BONDED, INDEBTEDNESS.
Will you be kind enough to say in reply
fo the item in " the Argus of last evening,
which gave the opinion of a man "who
could speak for a largo amount of our
bonded indebtedness," that the "funding
company in the East" do not charge au ad
ditional five cents over the amount prom
ised ih compromise. Tho people of this
city voted $270,000, iu new bonds to com
promise tho bonds at "about 50 cents on
the dollar," (using the language of the or
dinance providing for the issuance tsf tho
now tmnil.a') Tho infrnntinn wiw nt firi in
pay !' cents on the dollar of the principal
alone, but, we found that the interest had
been paid so unevenly on the old bonds,
that to treat tfll bondholders alike, the
principal nnd accrued interest had to he
figured together, which would enable us to
pay but 4.) per centum of principal and ac
crued interest,' with the $'270,000 of new
IkuhIs, voted by the people, and wlgeh has
been done in every instance so far. Fur
ther, please to state, that, the Funding As
sociation charge nothing until 0 per cent,
of the whole debt has been compromised
and then, only a portion of the amount they
are entitled to receive is to be paid them.
About $12:1,00(1 of the old debt has far
been, compromised, saving the tax-payerj
of the city the neat sum of $ii7,(i(i.0.
do not know when the city was ever before
saved S3 much money in a year's time.
When you take into consideration the fact
that thy compromise has been opposed and
ridiculed by those who ought to have as
sisted rather than opposed the measure,
pretty good headway lias been ma deaud I,
for o::c, am not at all discouraged, but
hopeful of complete success. As for
there being a gentleman in this city, "who
can speak for a large amount of our bond
ed indebtedness," which could be compro
mised at o0 cents on the dollar, no such
person has so far put himseif in communi
cation with the city authorities with such
an object in view. $9,000 of the old debt
has been compromised within 10 days, so
t'.iat the compromise has not come to a
stand still yet. Titos. W. H.u.i.tDAV,

The circus, iike Shakespeare's plays, will
never become old. The circus is blessed
with immortality. The circus has been in
the world nearly Jl.UOO years. The circus
was a living power in RomHong before the
Oospels were written. Men were doing the
nrcrm the very day that Cti-sar started out
to invade JBritain. Empires and nations
have arisen, fallen, and gone out of history
since the first circus gave its first exhibi
tion. And yet the circus is as full of vital
ity to-day as it was when Paul preached at
Athens. So much for circuses in general.
