As we reached the corner ot Twentieth
street and Commercial on our htroll in
search for Itoms, yesterday, wc concluded
to walk down tlio avenue to Fourth street,
and lay before our readers this morning,
that which we heard aud saw.
At the corner of Twentieth we met the
lately married Mr. M. O'Dounel, with a
smile on his face as broad and genial us
though he had just witnessed the excellent
performance at Walker's Comique, and with
eyes as bright as well, as only n ljitpy anil
new ly married man's can be.
We had taken but a tew steps on our
downward walk when it was whispered into
our ears that Cunningham was cunning: he
had caused the government to recognize his
great ability as a criminal lawyer; and as a
return for the services by him rendered the
country, had caused the government to offer
him a permanent berth on the government
survey tug now at tltia port.
A few more steps brought us to one of
our old ' "stand-by's," namely, Squire Os
born's office, at which we expected to get
our usual up town poheo news, but
the shapely form of the Squire was not "at
home," and we were informed that
probably he was out courting.
Being a handsome man, we thought
it likely; but left with a heavy heart, think
ing ou our way down, how much interest
ing reading our readers would miss bv the
THE C'All.MI KXCTllsroN ll'.AIN,
had brought to the city, as usual, several
full coaches of people troni Canni and sta
tions hence to that town, and
on our way down to Eighth
street we met not less than twenty
five or thirty of those who had come on the
train, realty to depart with filled baskets,
and packages and parcels of every size and
description. As we saw this and recalled
to mind the fact that next Saturday's will
be the last excursion train which will ur
rive in this city, we could not but help
blaming those of our merchants who are
directly interested, for not making an effort
to keep the traiii running.

X0METK1I. We had just taken a seat beside Shce
han, in front of Pyatt's auction store, when
two boys one about fourteen and the other
in the neighborhood of nineteen, stepped
up and related to the officer how the younger
of the two had jut lost his w atch. His
name was Collins anflhc had arrived on the
afternoon accommodation train from Oak
wood. While on the train he had become
"luKi.y," he wtiil, and when the train arrived
at Cairo, was "lsiozier''than was desirable.
As a remedy, a tall, slim mulatto thought
fully suggested a bottle of soduand volun
teered his services in getting it. He. was
bade get it by the young drunkard, aud
when it was brought the car contained only
the trio mentioned. It was at the time the
soda was delivered to young Collins that
he wa, without the least suspicion, re-
lieved of his watch, mid it was not until
several hours later that it was missed.
Officer Slieehan promised to do all in his
power for the fellow, but the probability is
that the watch will not be recovered.

It appears that Bob Henderson, w ith the

As we passed Hartnian's on our w ay down
we were reminded of what we already knew,

as clerk, one of Mound City's fair oi u s,

It now i.aiii'i to our earstli it on the corner
of Sixth, the dav belore, sixty dollars had
been snatched from two men just in from
the country, by a notorious negro mimed
Flip. U is known to a cert.ilnty by tin)
officers that Flip is guilty, several women
who saw the snatching being willing to tes
tify to his guilt, but the losers of the money
were ashamed lo expose their greenness iy,id
immediately left the city without prosecut

We stateil, some days ago that Ex-Mayor
Wiuler had Ismght the stock of groceries
formerly owned by Cm I Peter, and that he
intended tn move it into the 1 lose-Sail p
building with the intuition of opening a
first-class tumily grocery. Remembering
that we hud written such
an item several days agO)
and knowing that we only write that which
is true, we crossed the street to see how
he was progressing. Hut before we found
Jack's grocery store we were told that two
negroes had been engaged in an
ati kmi't to lion John sr. i.kimh.u,
at Nat Piouty's saloon, between Fifth and
S:th streets, and we at unco stin ted down
to Interview tlio proprietor. The report
proved true; and We learned from Mr.
Prouty that John St. Ledger, who Is a labor
ing mini and resides in this city, entered
his saloon in a "tipsy" condition, accom
panied by ttvo negroes. The negroes keep
ing close to Ledger, aroused Mr. Prouty 's
suspicions and he watched them closely..
To divert his attention, however, they called
for beer, mid while Mr. Prouty was tapping
it, with his back turned to them, they
picked his (Ledger's) pockets of fifteen
dollars. Dut Lodger, being aware of what
was being done to 'him, demanded a return
of tlio money and Mr. Prouty, allowing
no such proceedings in his house, forced
the negroes to return the money; and then
stepped out on the sidewalk to call in an
officer, but before one could be summoned
the negroes had escaped,

We proceeded a little further and this
brought ua to Cairo's social pits, where
crime and shame unite iu attHnpting to
make victims of all passers-by. We hap
pened to be in time to see the afternoon ac
commodation train on the Vincenucs road
leave, and we were disagreeably surprised
to see a disgraceful mob of both sexe,
nearly blockading the sidewalk for quite a
distance. The impressions made upon the
excursionists must have been disgusting in
the extreme, for the boldness displayed by
tu lewd women and the coarse language
of the male ruffians was simply shocking.
The former, kith black uml white, min
gled with the tdher upon the sidewalk
without auy apparent restraint.
This portion of our city is the source of
profanity, and the center of obscenity, the
sink of vice and crime, where thieyes hold
their nocturnal receptions and cut-throats
find a temporary repose. It is the plague
spot of the town, and those who dwell there
are moral lepers, who would contaminate
the vilest wanderer over the foot-stool of

That we were not guilty of exaggeration
in our accounts of the Catholic fair yes
terday, is supported by the result as ascer
tained by those- in charge. The figures
published iu our yesterday's issue were
incomplete although correct. Of tic
amount of the total receipts we were not
infoimed. but they must have been un
usually large as the xht I'Kotkkds were
$ !)."iO.OO. . This is beyond questiou the
largest sum ever realized troni tin enter
prise of this character given in Cairo, and
conclusively proves that the undertaking
met with the highest popular lavor. The
proceeds from the attendance alone at
ten cents apiece, amounted to between
sjfSO and $!() about nine hundred persons
having attended and paid. Hundreds were
admitted without paying. So that it is safe
to say that near to two tliousund people
threw uside dujl care and for one or two
nights of the week, resigned themselves to
innocent healthful pleasure while at the
same time lending both time and money in
supK.irt of a good cause and noble exertion.
If, in the future, the ladies of the Catholic
church should institute a similar or uny
other undertaking, they can safely depend
upon a hearty support from the commu
nity, for the energy displayed, and the suc
cess attending this effort, has gained gen
eral confidence and is a sufficient guarantee
to the people that they w ill not be disap

Why don't some energetic blacksmith
and woodworkman come to Clear Creek
and put up a shop. We are confident
there i not a better location for a biisines
of that sort in southern Illinois, than at
Cleat Creek. There is a vast, rich country,
all around it, Hiid we are assured there is
more wagons uml buggies used here, than
in any two precincts in the county. At cer
tain seasons of the year, two shops, could
not do the work there is to do. If wine
good mechanic, with some capital, would
come here, we are confident he would do
well. Let some one come.
The people of Clear Creek and East Cape
Girardeau are very much dissatisfied with
the election, especially the rowl-tax.
They were solid against it. and if the
people of Cairo and the county want to
know what they have to say ubout it, and
what they are strongly talking of doing
about it, if Tub Bvi.i k.tin will publish
