TIIK DAT IN CAIIK) HF.HVK'EH AT THE VAKI
Ol'S CHURCHES A BVNOI'SISOF THE SEK
Thanksgiving was observed yesterday in
a more general manner than wo have ever
seen it in Cairo. Tlio reason for this, we
know not, if it were not that our people ap
preciate the blessings that Almighty God
had bestowed upon them during the past
year. Blessings that other communities
deeply and dearly felt the need of, and
without which Cairo would have suffered
irreparably. AVe refer to the yellow
monster that has ravaged our
sister cities of the South the
past two years j sending the Angel of
Death into many a happy household ; de
populating cities and villages and prostrat
ing husincss. Yes, that monster, yellow
fever, which struck terror to the hearts of
Cairo people last year aud sent many a
good citizeu to the grave. For its absence
this year, we have much to be thankful for.
But this is not all. There are other bless
ings too numerous to mention, which we
Services were conducted at the various
churches as on Sunday, and many of our
AT THE CHURCH OF THE ItEDKKMER,
the Rev. Mr. Bonnar officiated.
The Rector made an extempore address,
of which we give the following outlines:
Thanksgiving-day is no uew institution,
but from the earliest time of God's ordain
ed ritual there has been the day set apart
pecially for giving Him thanks for the
fruits of the earth.
He said that it was a day for praise and
thanksgiving, father than teaching of duty
by preaching, and iu making even a short
address he departed from his usual custom ;
aud he did this to draw attention to one
particular point in the subject:
If the past year of blessings and the
ceaseless lessons tausht bvthe falling leaf.
the storms aud snows of winter, the
preparations and plantings of spring, with
the budding into life, the maturing of
grow th, the yielding of harvest aud the par
ticipation in the blessings so lavishly shed,
had not already taught us the duty of to
day. It was behind time to begin now; no
sermon to-day could make thanksgiving
a reality. But to one who realized the duty
this was the place, the only place here,
God's House, where He promised to place
His Name, where we come to meet Him, to
thank Him for the benefits we receive
is a nation or representatives of a nation.
The public thanksgiving for benefits shared
by all, not merely as individuals, but
especially should we remember that
through all this sendee in scripture
essons, pravers and bvmns there runs
the spirit of the words "Man doth not live
by bread only, but by cvory word that pro
ceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth
Tiie petition of the Lord's prayer "Give
us this day our daily bread" must have a
fuller adaptation than to the food and
clothing for our physical bodies. There is
a spiritual life and a spiritual body to be fed
and clothed and fitted for the great ingath
ering, when angels shall be reapers, and
souls with the works of this life the sheaves
This spiritual life is that which we pray
may be sustained by the "Wosd of God"
the Encharistic Food, the Manna and mys
terious Feast, even the Body and the Blood
of Christ. It we realize this ami learn to
give thanks fur, because we make use of,
these spiritual benefits, we shall join in the
great thanksgiving before the throne on
high, when the great ami final harvest is
gathered, and the good is stored in the
tres.-ure house of t.'ic great King, and the
chaff is cast away.
Rev. IJ. V. George, officiated
AT TIIK 1'ItKSDVTKItIAN ( lit 11(11,
and the reverend gentleman delivered a
very interesting sermon, a synojis of
which we append:
Prov.xvii., L'J. A merry heart doeth good
ike a medicine.
IN. xxxii.. 11. lie glad in the Lord ami
rejoice ye righteous.
Phil. iv.. 4. Rejoice in the Lord always;
and again I ny rejoice.
"A merry heart doeth good like a medi
cine" says a proverb of Solomon. When it
will answer, it ih the l.ct medicine, and
certainly it is the cheapest.
This la-t statement might seem to con
flict with ho science of political economy,
which teaches that, the cheapness or dear
ness of things d -pcmls on the relative de
mand and supply; for while there is n very
large demand tor merry hearts, the supply
is very limited. Vet a merry heart is the
cheapest medicine; for God hri.s put the
materials for making it, like the air for
filling our lungs within the reach of n ,
us. It Is cheaper than any oiher medicine,
too, because it is a home product. It is thij
cheapest, also, because the time' spent in
preparing it is not taken away IVoni other
needeil work, but on the contrary, one of
the very best ways of preparing it, is by
taking hold of all our proper employments
with spirit and cheerful nlacrily.
it is the cheapest from this additional
consideration, that every right step tukeu in
preparing ourselves a merry heart fits us,
just so far, to do more efficiently, with
less friction, and therefore h' wear and
tear, whatever work we have to do.
The book of Proverbs, which contains
the saying I Imvo thus commented on, is a
very remarkable, and certainly a veiy read
able hook. All question! of Its Inspiration
aside, It bears f ho marks of Imving been
penned by a very watchful, s:tguCUU4 unj
profound observer, who Imd a raro power of
conceutrating the results of much observa
tion, experience und reflection into one
short, pithy and well-baluuced sentence
Perhaps, too, a great many of them may
have been sentences, that, condensing
what we may call a universal experience,
passed from mouth to mouth for genera
tions, getting tlio corners rubbed off, until,
haviug assumed a thoroughly compact and
rounded form, they were adopted by the
inspired ninu, ami placed in the imperisha
ble record of scripture. Some of them pre
sent at first sight a profound religious
significance, as when it is said : The name
of the Lord is a strong tower, tho righteous
runneth into it and is sate. A great many of
them however, appear to have their chief, if
not theiivmly bearing upon our present life,
ami our preseut and perishing occupations
and relationships. They commend them
selves rather as the results of the highest
worldly wisdom than of strictly religious
thought. For instance, when we read,
"The legs of of the lame are not equal, so is
a parable in the mouth of fools," we see
how exactly it fits those who are veiy
ambitious in the use of figurative language
without the mental training or the native
common sense, to have the different parts
keep pace and harmonize with each other.
We feel that we have received a valuable
warning as to what we shall attempt in
discourse or in writing.
When we are told (xxv., 19 1 that "confi
dence iu an unfaithful mau in timo of
trouble is like a broken tooth and a foot out
of joint," we realize that we are reading af
ter a man who lias had, iu more ways than
one, some painful experiences in which we
also can sympathize with him. These are apt
to be undtr-valued by some Christian read
ers, as relating to temporal and earthly,
rather than spiiitttal and immortal interests.
Perhaps, however, we err iu drawing too
sharp a distinction between these two
aspects of our lives : we ought rather to real
ize that thoughtfulness and wisdom in man
aging our worldly matters are enjoined
in scripture, and that a gentle nnd courteous
bearing is among the Christian graces.
Therefore, if we regard this saving of
Solomon as referring merely to our present
happiness and the happiness we give others
by being cheerful it is not to be slighted as
a thing of small consequence.
The other passages, from the Psalm and
from the Epistle, put the duty of cheerful
ness on ttie highest religious grounds. It
was a marked feature in the life of tHe
early Christians. It was finely exhibited by
Paul and Silas when they prayed and
sang praises in the dungeon at midnight.
Reasons were given why the Christian
I...,, I 1 I -1 p.. I i . r. ..

methods of keeping up a happy disposition
were named :
By maintaining, first, a humble spirit
which w ill see our mercies as greater and
our trials as less than we merit.
A self-forgetting spirit which finds
happiness iu making others happy.
!i. A diligent and faithful spirit, that
finds no time for idle complaints.
4- A spirit that honors God, by recog
nizing nnd trusting His providence.
3. A prayerful spirit, that commits all
to Him ami receives His peace.
C. A thankful spirit, that looks at the
bright rather than the dark hide of our lot.
7. A heavenward-looking spirit, that
bears trials cheerfully, by penetrating be
yond them to the bright hereafter.
DIXON'S FRIEND SPEAKS.
In looking over the register of the St.
Charles hotel yesterday, we found the name
of Dr. L. N. IVrry, Yazoo City, Miss. It
occurred to us that this gentleman might
know something about the celebrated Dixon
murder. We found him intelligent, com
inunicativtr ami thoroughly conversant with
all of the details o; this unfortunate killing,
which Republican orators have been roll
ing as a sweet mor.-tl under their tongues
these many days. Dr. Perry went from
Uloomington, III., into the regular tinny,
and served during the whohj war. In m2
he was in Cairo under General Grant. In
1S70 he removed to Yazoo, and became the
intimate personal friend und associate of
Dixon. Dixon was in Perry's otlice a few
minutes before the fatal shot was fired.
He says that while Dixon was a true
friend, ubouuding in generous impulses,
he was yet a very violent man,
disposed to be quarrelsome ami abusive, nnd
his own unbridled tongue was the provoca
tion that caused Barksdale to take his life.
Dr. Perry declined to repeat the scanda
lous stories that Dixon circulated about
Barksdale and his sister, but said he heard
Dixon himself repent them, nnd told
him after that somebody would kill him.
Tho doctor says that Hiirksdalo's published
statement is correct in every particular, and
that the killing had no foundation in poli
tics, but was purely a personal affair.
He says that many falsehoods have been
told on Dixon. He denies that Dixon was
cit her u professional gambler or a "women's
man" iu any improper sense, but was a
faithful mid kind husband und fath
er. We may add that Dr. Perry
wus president of the lire company
that burled Dixon. Tin; doctor suys that
since ho became n resident of Yuzoo City
ho has taken no part in politics, and Js en
t'rely uiitrammclud so fur as tho different
parties arc concerned.
On the foregoing facts wo demand n ro
opening of the Ohio campaign, and nil
other ami fairer election.

POLICE COURT NoTES. '
Yesterday beiug Thanksgiving the po
lice courts did not transact much business.
Most of the officials being good and chris-
tain men, they only transacted business of
an important character.
Two or three t ivil casts were tried by
Comings yesterday. The Squire is particu
lar about shielding his docket of such cases
I turn the reportorial eye, hence we are un
able to say more about them.
Peter Hughes was a lonely and onW
case brought before Robinson. He was
charged with a plain and couimou drunk,
and was assessed hut $1.00 and the cost,
which he could not pay, and w as handed
over to Andy, of the city jail.
Squire Osborn dealt with but one law
breaker yesterday, Wm. William-, charged
with stealing clothing to the value of $13
from Mr. Bell, at the box factory. The court
held that Williams was a proper person to
hold over, und his bond was fixed at $100.
He went to the county jail.
Sarah Williams the noted Sarah
was found in 'Squire Coining's of
tie, in a a'ni and or medi
tation, when a representative of Tin; Rn.
i.etix entered. She wasa vaitlnga thanks
giving di.-h of justice lit the hands of the
distinguished dispenser of that urtich.
which her boi?t- roii conduct on Wednes
day evening bad merited. The court was
moditati us to what disposition to make
of her, when Officer Hunker, accompanied
by his Honor, the Mayor, entered, and
after a short parley with thee function
aries, the 'Squire deemed it best for the
good of Saiah. us also the t;iod of the com
munity, to remand her to jail until such
time as transportation could' be secured
for her to Memphis, a p-iint she w as over
anxious to reach.
