Eliza Eazel is the name of a colored
damsel who demeaned hcrsolf in such an
offensive manner, yesterday, that our con
servators of tho peace, lelt constrained to
'pull her" beforo Squire Robinson. Sho
was fined ftf and costs, and, being able to
secure tlio payment of tho amount, escaped
Bill Snivins and Gus Baggs wcro
brought before Squire Robinson, yesterday
to answer for an indulgence in a plain, un
adorned drunk. Tho drunk was Innocent
of all boisterous adornments, and was held
therefore, to bo worth only one dollar, and
costs, to each of them. A stay w as given to
Spivins. Baggs went to the calaboose.
Officer Schutter arrested a colored wo
man for drunkenness, about 8 o'clock last
night, and lour brass bands, two boiler
yards and all the animals in Ilongler's men
agerie could scarcely have drowned the
noise she made while en route for tho cala
boose. The good natured Schutter should
liave gagged her. Her sbnekswere simply

respectable. The tuba player croaches

It was reported to us, yesterday even
ing, that the colored girl whose name had
been associated with Jimmy Nott's m a
public scandal, had become a mother, and
that the father of the girl, meeting Nott in
the street, yesterday, made a personal as
sault upon him. If all this is a continua
tion of the scheme that Nott publicly de
clared was devised by ignorant niggers to
injure him, it can scarcely be denied that
"the plot thickens."
1 'While it is none of our friend AValber's
business how we deal with the llogan case.
we have to say that we scanned our ex
changes carefully, up to Thursday, when we
put our copy in hand, and gave every word
of comment touching the verdict, that fell
under our observation. From first to last
we have dealt with Mr. Iloiran with far
greater leniency than he or his friends had
occasion to ftxpect, or did expect putting
a strong curb upon, our personal feelings,
we confess, in doing so.
A colored man who lives in the vicinity
of Nineteenth and Poplar, and who is rec
ognized by the name of Ab Mohan, was
brought before Squire Robinson, yesterday
to answer for threshing his wife. His
guilt A'as established, and the Squire im
posed a tine upon him of five dollars and
costs of suit, Mr. Mohan may regard it a
very manly thing to give the old woman a
belting now and then; Out we'll venture the
prediction that, if he repeats the perform
ance with any degree of regularity, he'll
find it the most expensive pastime in
which he ever indulged.
Andy Cain, the jailer, with a gang of
two men and two large boys, was abroad
yesterday, removing the mud from the c ro-s
walks. Our J. P's would favor the
public if they will make every
ram a pretext for calaboosing
about a dozen loafers. Such a force would
keep all the much-used cross walks in tiie
city in a passable condition. Our pedes
'trians, and especially the females, have t:o
greater nuisance to contend with, after
heavy rains, than our wretchedly muddy
and generally delapidated cross walks.

to credit the Quincy crowd with the nbil

A Mound Cityite dropped into ono of
our saloons, as long ago as last Saturday,
and called for a drink of brandy and pepper
mint, remorking that ho was sick, and
wanted to stop a "horrid sinking." Being
supplied, ho stepped back from the counter,
and other customers dropping in, ho made
for the door; but was reminded by tho bar
keeper tliatnc had forgotten to pay for his
medicine. Replying, somewhat impertin
ently, if not angrily, ''I told you I was
sick," the barkeeper gave hiin a back
handed slap in tho face. After brooding
over tho matter a full week, the Mound
Cityite sued, and the trial coming on for
hearing, yesterday, tho barkeeper was fined
f 3 and costs. The enso was heard by
White, tho negro killed by constable
Echols, in Caledonia, tho other day, had
but recently been punished for petty lar
ceny, and was then reminded by Judge
Baker that a second offence would send
him to tho penitentiary. It was a knowl
edge of this fact that stimulated the effort
to escape. It was the fourth ball fired
that hit him the first three balls fired
and the frequent calls upon him s to
halt, seemed to have no other effect that to
accelerate his speed. As between the
chances of being killed in an attempt to
escape, tftid of going to tho penitentiary in
the event of capture, he manifestly had
fully determined to accept the former. The
colored men of the neighborhood foolishly
talked of vengeance, for awhile; but the
white residents of the locality, knowing the
killing to be excusable, manifested a pur
pose to protect the constable, and the talk
of vengeance ended in talk.
About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
constables Sheehan and llogan committed
to the county jail, a couple of strangers who
were caught in the act of stealing two cad
dies of tobacco and a box cf axes i'mu llal
liday A' Phillips' wharf-bout. They had ar
rived in the city on the Port Ea-is the even
ing before, with no particular purpose or
destination ahead of them. Their names
are A. J. Bowen and C. J. Johnson. About
noon, yesterday, thev had secured a skiff,
placed a box of axes and a couple of cad
dies of tobacco therein, and one of them
had another package in his arms, when he
was discovered and ordered to halt, and
drop his swag. He very deliberately put
down the box and sat down upon it, think
ing to create the idea, perhaps, that he was
simply dealing with his own.. Both of them
were then taken in custody, and commit
ted to jail. It was a bold, daring theft, and
as all the facts above stated, are suscepti
ble of proof, Messrs. Bowen aud Johnson
may be considered as looked for a sojourn

Only about two weeks intervene be
tween the present time and the Novemb r
election. Do the merchants and business
im n of Cairo intend to takit any measure
to popularize the proposed road tax? , It Is
a matter of great concern to - them, and de
serves their tamest active approval. We
encieve it to be the nio-t important pr '
-s:t ion ever submitted to the voters of the
cov.nty, since it involves the project if
wi.gon ivads tint wiil place Cairo in cm:-
st .::t, c'.isap and amp'.i; communicuti- r.
witli every porti-.n of Al:.x i:i ler cousry.
Sueh a system of r.als would o:i
tribute more to the retail bminoss of tl.e
city than (-i'.lier of our railroads has dor,..;
but who is working tor it? Who is trying
t) make votes for the proposition! Wl. :t
bttsintss man Ins evinced any conoern
whatever? It is ctrtainly discouraging to
witness such apathy especially among the
men who would reap the lion's share of the
profits that would accrue to the city in the
event the project i carried out. A differ
ent stat" of feeling wm expected;
and unless a different linn of ac
tion be adopted , ,at once unless
the business ; men . and merchants of
Cairo evince a becoming Interest in the un
dertaking, and work for the adoption of tho
proposition submitted, tho result can readi
ly be foretold. The project will be defeat
ed, and tho responsibility will he charged to
those who might have "snatched victory
from the jaws of defeat," but would not.
We clip trom an exchange the follow
ing very flattering nnd well deserved notice
of the Alice. Oats opera company, that is
to give the people of Cairo, ''l'iuafore" to
night, at the Atlfiieum. The reserved
seats were all taken early in the week, and
standing room is likely to bo at a premium
after the doors open, which shows timt we
can appreciate talent. "A largo and
lashionablo audience was attracted to this
popular.placo of amusement hist tii"ht to
hear tho Alieo O.ites English Opera Com-
1 puny in tho military comic opera of "Lo
Petit Due." Although this was" io first
presentation of opera in this city, yet the
enthusiasm with 'which it was received In
dicates that its leading character Is not tho
least popular rolo in which Alice Oates
appears. The plot is a good one; and tho
music is of a sprightly character, which
meets with general favor. The company Is
a strong ono, and tho leading characters
find clever support at evory turn, whether
it bo in movement or chorus, tho latter
being one of the much admired features of
tho opera throughout. Thowardrobcg wero
especially fine, which added to the excel
lent stago facilities of the Grand, tended to
a satisfactory and excellent production of
the piece, in which the company is as much
interested as those who go to see and hear.
The success of the entertainment last night,
even at the risk of hearing something that
might not prove as popular as the old, will
have a tendency to-night to bring out an
other full house to hear the same company
in Giroflo Giorfla, the characters and music
of which only como with the regular ap
pearance of Alico Oates and never have
failed to draw a large house-
TIIE MEKAGERIE ASD CIRCUS.
As regular as comes tho summer so docs
the circus, and generally every one of them
has the samo old features with a new name;
but we are pleased to chronicle an almost
complete change in this respect, for, when we
wended our way, with thousands of others,
to tho show lot on Monday last, we were
agreeably disappointed in witnessing sev
eral new acts, and, take it as a whole, the
best display of menagerie, museum, curios
ities and arenic performances that we ever
beheld. The riding of Miss Mollie Brown
was simply superb, also the manege act of
Madame Louise Brown. Romeo Sebastian
and Alexis Scarfar, (Sebastian, a pad rider
and Scarfar a bareback equestrian), gave us
some of the inost daring and thrilling feats
of equestrainism imaginable. These gen
tlemen certainly stand at the head of their
profession. The three charming little fel
lows, the Siegrist Brothers, are wonderful
in their gymnastic exercises. Their somer
saults from shoulder to shouffler drew forth
fcc most unbounded approbation from an
audience that filled the tent clear down to
the edge of the ring. Luke Rivers, in the
old-time scene act of "Pete Jenkins; or,
the Drunken Countryman from Cohoes,"
was one of the principal attractions. Shout
after shout of convulsive laughter greeted
his unquestionably funny attempts to ride,
despite the pretended efforts of the clown
and ringmaster to stop him. Trenton, N.
