Some of the stories of railroad consoli
dations recently circulated are set down
as stork-jobbing inventions. The report
that the Illinois Central was to be consoli
dated with the Chicago, St. Louis and New

the former company has always owned two
thirds of the stock of the latter.

The wonderful January weather is not
without a precedent, though everybody you
meet says so. Only four years ago, Janu
ary 187(3. the first nine days of January
wen; as warm as June weather; thermome
ter running nearly to70;. Then all at
once on tin; night of the !lth, it fell thirty
degrees, and shivered everybody to pieces
almost, and then grew warm again, contin
uing pust the middle of the month.
In conseipience of the increased co-t
of white paper, the St. Louis Kcpuhlic.ni
and Glo e-Democrat have raised the price
to city subscribers, delivered by carriers, to
thirty cents per week, and also have raised
the price to news agents. The advance of
(our cents per pound ou the cost of paper
within the pasl four months bears heavily
on the large newspapers, and is a loss in
stead of a gain, which is crowding smaller
sheets to a similar result.

The phrase "a month of Sundays'' is
u familiar one. Next February will be al
most a month of Sundays. There will bo
five Sundays in that short month. This
only happens once in twenty-eight years.
Next February will also be a big month for
the party who only has a birthday onco in
four years. This birthday will bo cele
brated on tho 29th. There are blushing
damsels over CO years of age who will then
celebrate their sweet fifteenth birthday.
Thursday evening a number of young
children gathered at the residence of Dr.
W. It. Smith, to attend a party given by
the little Smiths. The little folks were
there in large numbers, and found ample
arrangements for their reception and enter
tainment. Dr. and Mrs. Smith assisted in
the invention of little devices for the
amusement of the guests, and until late in
the night there was no Slagging in the en
thusiasm. All finally departed for home,
satisfied that a merrier evening could not
have been spent.
The Mississippi River Commission
have been in session at St. Louis for several
days preparing their report, w hich will em
body a recommendation of a plan for the
improvement of the river. About f 10,000
have been disbursed on the surveys of the
river which are going actively on. Au ap
propriation of f:j,000,000 orlt.OOO.OOO will
be asked for, and every congressman whose
constituents reside in the Mississippi valley
must vote for that appropriation. The peo
ple of the Valley States are determined to
have the Mississippi river put in perma
nently good boating order.
The collection taken up Sunday last in
St. Patrick's church for the relief of the op
pressed and suffering Irish of Ireland,
amounted to the very respectable sum ot
forty-seven dollars. The amount cleared
by the lecture of Mr. T. O'Neil Russell
was thirty-seven dollars making, in ail,
eighty-four dollars. This amount, together
with what will to-morrow be raised by the
penny collection in St. Patrick's church,
will be forwarded at once, aud we must say,
that, considering the weakness of the effort
made, the amount raised speaks well for
the liberality of Cairo's Irishmen.
The annua! crop of the State Hoard of

The appeal of the Mansion commiitee
to the people of the United States says: It
is now admitted that the distress is of an
acute and unexceptional character, certain
to involve actual starvation if extraneous
aid be not promptly and liberally forth
coming. The distress daily increases iu
area and intensity, and it seems almost im
possible to avert it until nxt harvest. An
absolute famine in very many places is
feared. The central committee distributes
its reliet through local committees, of
which tin clergy of all deininin itions in
this district and the poor law medical
olhYers must be members, and the relief is
given in kind, and not in money.

Messrs. Yocum & IJroderick have
recently opened a grocery and vegetable
store near the corner of Eigth street and
Washington avenue. They have laid in a
large stock of fancy and staple groceries,
and keep always on hand a great variety
ol fresh vegetables, the latest of the season.
They have spent considerable money in
reuovating the store nanus and have suc
ceeded in transfering thcin into one of the
most attractive stores in the city. Mr.
Ilroderick, who is always on hand to attend
to the wants of customers, is an energetic
young man, well known to everyl.ody iu
the city, and deserves a most liberal patro
nage, lioth Mr. Yocum and Ilroderick are
Csleemable gentlemen, with a good taste
for business, and there is no doubt but that
their good judgement in supplying the
wants of their customers satisfactory will
bring them ample uutccss.
A Chester correspondent thus reports
the political situation: "The campaign of
18S0 lias already commenced in this coun
ty. The fight thus far is limited to the
State Senatorship. lly the old rotation
principle which has long been iu vogue in
this district, Randolph county is entitled to
the candidate, and be it said to her honor,
there is no lack of good material. The
two names now most prominently
before the people are Hon. J. Fer
ry Johnson and Hon. John T. MeHride,
both nf this city. The gentlemen are
both prominent and well known, are rtn
coinproniising Democrats, an 1 in past
years have rendered their party much
services and have labored unceasingly to
secure the success of its measures. Eith
er of the two would make an able senator
and till a seat in that body with credit to
the district and honor to himself. It is
yet early, and not at all improbable but
that other names will come up for consid
eration in connection with this ollice. John
Stoehr. au influential German citizen of
R"d Hud. is spoken of a a probable Re
publican candidate. As regards county
ofiic.es little of nothing has yet been said.
Rut i: is safe to presume that each party
wi I put its best foot forward iu a struggle
for mastery, such as tin s iii of oi l Randolph
has not known before.
On Sunday last we warned our mer
chants to beware of counterfeit five and ten
dollar bills. At the time we gave this warn
ing we did not give our reasons for doing
so. since that would have caused the coun
tcrf'T.t'rs to leave the city and the plans of
the olhYers would thus have been interfered
with. At the time we g ive the warning
there were four suspicious strangers in this
city, who changed their clothes two an 1
three times per day in order to avoid detec
tion. One of lin.e four men, unaware to
the officers, visited the saloon of Mr. Dan
McCarthy, on Commercial, and after sot
ting them up" freely to the crow. I he met
there, be handed Mr. McCarthy a ten dollar
bill for the payment of his debt. Mr.
McCarthy, not siMpicioning that the bill
w is counterfeit, took it without examina
tion and returned eight dollars o genuine
i.ioiny to the str ing r as his change. It
was not usitil the stringer h id left the sa

two stanzas of "The morning light is break

no distant day: that the exact time had not
yet been tix'd upon, but that iu all proba
bility, it would be given on some day dur
ing the week following Lent. An effort
would b" made to procure the best musical

not only prove pleasant to those who attend
ed but also profitable to the club.
Cjpt. Williams then introduced a resolu

printed for the accommodation of those

in his expressions and was not coming to
Cairo to ItutubUjrour people, etc.

Mr. G. M. Alien had now left hiss-at in
the audience almost unperceived, and had
taken his stand near the platfor in- facing
the audience. In bis hand he held a
folded newspaper and asked the attention
of the audience while lie read an article
therefrom. The newspaper proved to be
the Argus and the article the one headed.
"The cat out." He read the comments of
