Capt. Bill Dougherty, of Mound City,
is in Cairo with a 'train load of stave
clippings, conveniently' bound for hand

abundance of kindling for a whole year.
It also serves well for light fires.

There is an unsual amount of sickness
among the residents of the Cache bottoms,
just now, the principal ailments being bili
ous and typhoid-malarial fevers. It is
argued that the Mississippi being very low,
the wells of that locality are supplied with
water from Cache, which stream being
rilled with decaying timber and vegetation
its whole length, is about the color of strong
coffee, and, of course, very unhealthy.
Frank Dresser and h brother who
were mercilessly massacred byjho L'te In
dians when they sacked the White river
agency and murdered' old father Meeker,
are said to have been late residents of the
neighboring town of Anna. Frank's Wly
was tound in a coal cave, where the poor
tellow had crawled to die, alter he received
his death wound.- The others were found
lying on the commons, stark naked, ami
horribly mutilated by the rvk devils who
had dispacthed them.
The case of the People vs. Mrs. Me
dium and Morris Howard, tor the murder
ol James Medium, was called tliiiinr the
pri sent term of the Pulaski Circuit Court,
hut was laid over by agreement until the
Febrmiry term. Both the accused rue in
jail, and no attempt was made bv their at-
tornys to effect their release on bail. We
fotibt if they could furnish the bail, ifthrir
case were a bailable one. The murder was
a blood-thirsty, shocking affair in the ex
trvme. -His name is withhheld in obedience to
a request, and becuuse it was the lirst of
fence; but he was drunk to the point of ob
liviousness. He didn't wander in yreen

ant officer of tho law who has the; faculty
of being at all places at all times, and of
seeing in all directions at the saino instant
ot time, that tho next boy caught in tho
act of destroying public notices, shall be
prosecuted to tho full extent of the law. As
this resolution is equivalent to tho turning
over of a new leaf in Cairo police affairs,
we feel called upon to givo the maliciously
and viciously inclined boys of tho city, this
warning. Tho law provides a severe pen
altyheavy fines and long terms of impris
onment, but tho boy who through pure
cussedness, violates tho law, forfeits all
claim upon the mercy of either judge or
jury. lie makes his own bed and should
be forced to lie in it.
Capt. Hill and Capt. Dugan joined
hands in tho determination, yesterday, that
tho intolerable wreck of the barge Thorpe
that inexhaustible source of varied and
well-defined stinks should "come out of
that." In pursuance of that determination
they put in a very effective day's work.
Much ot the wreck was blasted out of
place and removed to deep water, and the
whole ugly, offensive thing will be put out
ot sight by night-fall this evening. Capt.
Hill, who worked in his armor, says the
rotten oats and corn yet in the wreck, are
hip deep, in some places, and form a mess
that no man, not armored against smells,
can endure any longer than lie can hold his
breath. The wreck is beim: removed at the
instance of Col. Taylor, who wants the
landing relieved of the obstruction it forms.
A colored individual who answers to
the much-blessed but sadly misapplied
name of Thomas Jefferson Wei'Ster, came
i.'. from the country, yesterday, and got
booming drunk. His very respectable
name didn't shield him from arrest, how
ever, and he was pulled into the placid
presence of Squire Comings, who
weighed the case carefully, and
found that the scales of justice balanced
at six dollars. Accordingly that sum was
named as the tine. But Webster was ex
ceedingly contrite, and pined much for the
liberty to leave town and hoof it to Os
Greenlcy's. Yielding to the,tellow's impor
tunities the Squire gave him six hours in
whrch to make his start. He improved the
opportunity and started at once without
standing a moment on the orJer of his

an immediate, thorough and radical change.
More poison is diffused through the ground
and atmosphere by the privy vaults of the
city, than by all other causes combined. It
is undeniably true that those privy vaults
that leak, (as ninely-nine out of every hun
dred do) pollute the ground ; those that arc
tight poison the air. The more they hold
the worse they are, because the older such
undiluted wet filth is the more dangerously
poison it is.' This being true, it Itecoincs
the duty of every householder in Cairo to
give the matter his serious attention. We
should make common cause against this
gvat source of contusion and disease, and
con to a halt only when we have achieved
the mastery, or exhausted human ingenuity
and effort in the attempt to achieve it.
Although a farmer may have his fields
enclosed by fences as high as the Bunker
Hill nionunieut, he is invested with no
right, on that account, to dog or hjure
trespassing cattle. The thing for hi:n to
do is to notify the owner of the offending
cattle, flien, if he has a lawful fence, he
can compel the payment of compensating
damages. If lie does not know the owner,
he may pen the cattle up, and, in due time,
and after the arrangement of certain pre
liminaries, compensate his losses and ex
penses, by selling his captives. But he
possesses no more right to dog or abus: cat
tle caught in his cornfield, than ho has to
abuse the same cuttle when they are forag
ing m the commons; and it is held that the
owner of cattle that may have been maimed
or killed under audi circumstances, has a
valid claim for damage to the extent of th-i
losses he may prove. This is a humane law,
just and sensible; anil it might pay some of
our neighboring corn-raisers to study its
Yesterday was quite a busy day in the
police courts, no less than seven offenders
having been brought to account before
Squire Robinson, and thruf or fi.ur else
where. The first parties the Squire had to
deal with were two colored women who In
dulged in tho luxury, of punching each
other's heads. Ono of them plead guilty,
was fined fi am! costs, and "sent over;" the
other secured a postponement of her case
until to-day. Next came two vicious boot
blncks, who had "pluggcdeachother'smugs'
after the manner of regular bruisers. They
were find $."5 and costs, each, ami also "sent
over." Two individuals who had "flooded
their lower levels" to the extreme of boozi
ness came next, and were charged
'J and costs, each ; and then
Julia Jones made her regular monthly ap
pearance, this time under a charge of ob
scene and abusive language. Tho chargo
was sustained, and Julia being fined $3 and
costs, followed the many who had preceded
her, and went over also. And thus wsro

W ' ' - -" .
Tho result iu Ohio is precisely what we
anticipated, and what we would have fore
told, had our printers boon able to put in
typo tho editorial we prepared for yester
day mornitg's piper. Tho rout is com
pleto, overwhelming and disastrous; arid it
it teaches ono lcBSon more pointedly than
another, it is that the people of this country
will never endorse the States Rights dogmas
that enteicd so largoly into tho Ohio canvass.
Tho result is a square repudiation of that
doctrine in so far as Ohio is concerned, and
tho Democratic party will prove blind, oven
to its own destruction, if it fails to accept it
as such. The exact majority against tho
Democratic ticket is not definitely ascer
tained. The telegraph is, as a general
thing, under Republican management, and
all speculations indulged in should be taken
with due allowance lor the influence of f ar
tisan prejudice. The majority for Foster
will, however, tall but lhltle short of 30,000.
The hope that tho Democrats have re
tailed control of tho Legislature is mani
lestly a baseless ono, and it is folly to cling
to t. We are beaten, badly beaten; and
can draw comfort from nothing the result
furnishes for our contemplation.
In the character and carryings-on of a
large clement of that population that is
domiciled below Fifth and between the
Levee and Walnut streets, our police are
confronted with the sorest and most per
plexing problem with which they are called
upon to deal. L.'wd women, black and
wluta have congregated there in largo
numb-rs, and draw to their bagnios, not
only tie worst and most vicious characters
of the', city; but the wickedest and most
danueious that travel the rivers. It is but
little better than mere idleness to arrest the
women, cither as the keepers of bawdy
houses or as inmates. It is a difficult
matter n sustain charges under either heal;
and tho, imposition of fines seems to have
but onijeffect, and that is to drive the par
ties fiuei to deeper and more damnable de
bauchery. There appears, in fact, to be
only oim cure for the evil, and that is to
prosecut, without mercy, the parties who
knowingy rent such creatures quarters.
It, is utto-ly impossible that the owners of
all the poperty rented to these people are
ignorant if the uses to which it is applied.
If they at' ignorant, it is about tiny; their
eyes wen opened to the truth. It is a dis
grace to jurcity and reflects upon the ad
ministrates of the city's affairs, that such a
"hell hf'.e" should be maintained from
month tc month and year to year, without
stimulaf ng a resort to all the means the
law prouHes, to abate it. Let the blow he
struck tken ; let the axe be laid at the very
roots at" the evil, and. then if the moral upus
tree th has ijrown to such obnoxious pro
portion) in our midst, does not totter and
fall, wocan at least comfort ourselves with
the assjrance that it stands because
can't ovir-tura it.
