A citizen who lias ralatives in Maj
field, Ky., Informs us that the people of that
city, after having banished all saloons
keepers from their midst, havo now con
cluded to revoko thejr former decision bo
cause, whilo thero were no Keened saloon
koepora, the drug storosfold nearly as much
whiskey, etc., ns was sold before that time
and the city was deriving no revenue thero
from, as was the case when saloons were
allowed to exist.
"About this time," as the almanacs
used to say, "look out for'' doLdul ioreciist
ings of a scarcity of ice during the ensuing
summer. The prophecy has become so
familiar that it is fuik a matter of course
that wo are now told, or at least the dozenth
time, of an impending iee famine. Judg
ing the tuture by the past, however, lifter
the fashion of a distinguished Hevolution
ary patriot, we may possess our souls iu
(juiciness. The ice-dealers will go ubout
the streets as usual with theit crystal
blocks, and they will fix it somehow so that
wc may all enjoy our wonted artificial u
frigeration. It may be of interest to the converts of
Susan 15. Anthony iu this city, to learn that
the Boston women polled nine hundred
votes for school directors at the recent elec
tion, and although beaten they are not at all
di.-couraged. They were treated with the
utmost courtesy at the pills, and they urge
their sex lo jmy the poll tax and register so
as to be able to poll a bigger vote next year.
The ladies have issued on ndrress iu which
they say "that the political parties of the
city are willing to nominate women ns
members of the school board; that the do
termination of the women to vote for good
candidates only had itselFect upon the nom
inations of both parties, and it is now pos
sible to anticipate that the days ot mere
oflicij-seeking are near au end, so far as the
school board is concerned."
We see from the I'aditciih News that
there is no little uneasiness felt mining the
residents of Paducah as to the result of the
pnsent unusual weather upon the health of
the jieople next summer. A few of the
people of Cairo feel ditto, and while many
are of the opinion that nothing but the
best ot sanitary prejiarations can ward oil'
great sickness us the result of the warm
winter, some of the oldest inhabitants point
to certain years back, when, as they assert,
lettuce was ready for the table in Fcbru.iry,
while in March and May all kinds of early
vegetables were upon the tables, and the
unusual good health was the subject of
every-day comment. It would seem that
there is, therefore, no great cause of uneasi
ness, though it would, no doubt, be safer to
work to prevent the dreaded sickness.
Should a stranger be informed that nt
the next term of our circuit court twenty
seve:i prisoners would have n hearing, he
would naturally suppose that tl.is city
was really as corrupt and immoral as it is
generally represented. Now let ns see
from whence come these jtrisoncrs. Among
the twenty -seven only two are citizens of
Cairo or this county und these two are
out on bail. They are Hev. Jacob Bradley,
charged with perjury, and Tom Clarkston,
charged with stealing a sack of coilee
from Messrs. Stratton & Bird. Both of
these are negroes and the remaining
twenty-five, both white and black, are
slr.ingera mid thieves on general principle,
who jump fr.im one town to another
and out of one jail into another. They are
nvm for whose actions Cairo is not resjion-
sible, but who tend to give it the reputation
it bears abroad.
Eastern exchanges stale that the vo
unie of business at th.! great seaboard cities
since the opening ot the year has been
light, occasioned chiefly by the high values
current for home stajiles generally, which
has checked the export trade. This is par
ticulurly the case with wheal, cotton, and
provissions. Complaints of inactivity iu
the export trade tire heard from all the
ports on the Atlantic and are made thomon
loud by the abundant supply of tonnage
waiting for business to revive. With the
large visible supjiiy of wheat at Western
centres and on the seaboard, the European
markets (also showing fair stocks) are de-
dejiressed; and notwithstanding the present
low rates for ocean carriage, the orders
cabied are at too low a limit to be filled.
A Haiti more exchange says that "corn is
moving along ipiiie steadily in price, with
liberal foreign shipments hene?." 1
List Saturday a high-toned darkey,
one of the bo-boys, was arrested by
Uiiu!cr lyier lor using abusive language,
lie was brought before Sijuire Osborn and
lined nine and a half dollars. The gentleman
of color relusod to pay, preferring, he said,
to be jailed and "live on the city" awhile
to forking over the price of Ins freedom.
We have frcfpiently heard of similar ctisei
and believe that some means could bo
adopted, by w hich these professional dead
beats might be induced to either pay for
their fun or for their lodging. The jail is
o I'le n full of able-bodied men and women
whose chict attributes Hre meanness and
laziness and who could and should be in
some way constantly employed to pass
away the tune and pay for their board. If
it, were generally known among petty of
fenders that the price of their wilful! viola
tions of the pity's ordinances was not in"iv
ly to allow thorns-lives to bo comfortably
fed and lodged for a certain number ot
days at the cxpenso of the citv, but to nut
in a certain number of twelve hour days-fT'
good honest labor, they would be tnord
careful not to lay tlumiselvjs liable under
the ordiiiaiicas and wlr.-u lia.: I for au of
fense, bo more apt to frk over their
loose change. It would undoubtedly
increase the number of paid lines.
A gentleman who litis hud somo experience
iu that lino of business suggest that a pi lo
of rocks bo always kept on hand in tho
jail yard and that the prisoners bo made to
brake them for street paving purposes when
no better employment can bo found for
them. Tho idea Is a good and wo recom
mend it to the council for consideration.
In yesterday's issue appeared an item
criticizing the conduct of tho young loafers,
who have acquired the habit of gathering
at this office, and ut street corners gener
ally, insulting nil ladies vho have occasion
to jiass them. A number of young men
who believed that the shoe fitted them, and
feeling agrieved, met at this oilico yester
day and demanded satisfaction which they
didn't get. Cairo hav, ns all cities have, a
number of young men, from whoso disgrace
ful actions on the street one might sujipose
that their minds were diseased and that
that disease might be insanity. But should
our readers not desire to pre sujipose intel
ligence, they might believe that tho young
men had relapsed into their normal slate of
idiocy. As a general rule these youngsters
have u. largo heart and a bank account,
which is daily increasing iu size (the heart
not the bank account and to our certain
knowledge they never "drink"--having
joined the red ribbon club on three separ
ate occasions. It would, however, not be
safe to toed them on eggs unless the "nog'1
was extracted. They are gentlemen not
of tra les, but "jirofossions" an I generally
make n very useful article around the
house doing nothing. Being of small
stature their size is not calculated to keep
the (lies oil' the ceiling nor does it lit them
for the "profession" of washing high win
dows. They would do to lav on the shelf,
however, where undoubtedly they would
bine as an ornament of much mental luil-
lia icy mid we must, to do them jtisiic
add. th it tiny are unsophisticated young
men d ,'Hr ducks of fellows who are not
iiny better looking than th law allows.
They would look well, however,
in white knls ami spike-tail
coats and by donning these
might get society to recognize them. And
talking about society reminds us that
society" has neglected them, and this
wicked world, in gen.-ral, has never given
them a fair chance. As an addition to so
ciety they would prove jiriceless jewels,
since thi-y boast of descending from a long
line of kings and nobles and quote poetry
m ignificieiitly. Soceity should take them
in and give them room to "spread themselves-,"
or som . kind-hearted widow lady
should adopt them. They are beauties of
the brunette and bl.md'- typo high
uii.idul, but not proud-
choice morsels, who are doubtless
the only sons of indulgent fathers and are
cut out for shoemakers. They can "shake
snarl" wifh the ino-t accomplished saloon
kteper in tho city and are a cur
iosity a "combination" so called, by
somo. Some cstijiutc them to bo ninety
three years old; others say fifty; they claim
to be about twenty-seven, so we'd call them
forty at a ventuic. They have seen a great
deal of the world; will probably s:'o a great
deal more when walking gets better. They
have been blown ui. shot, run over by a
train of cars, drowned, tell from a baloon
and poisoned, and hence for young ladies
v, ho woi Id not look well in mourning we
would rei Oil mend these young men; of
whom it is said that the sun woosthem and
and the moon ones for them, and the sea
sobs because they will not come, and the
dai'ics wait lovingly for tlieir feet in spring
tine. When they die (a natural death
they'll never die) we will see to it that they
are ott.y handed into h.-aveii with kid
or i.ui'Ai. iMKi!i;sr.

Tiik DuLLKTiit has aeveral times, of
late, suggested that the offices of Corpora
tion Council and City Attorney bo united
and this suggestion has been received with
favor by Beveral ot our attorneys and peo
ple in general who are interested in public
affairs. The consolidation of these two offices
would give to tho City Attorney a salary
sufficiently largo to justify him in bestow
ing tho proper attention to criminal cases
which may bo brought into our city courts,
and at tho same time guard tho interests
ot the city in general. .
A special correspondence from Spring
field to the Chicago Tribuno states:
"After mature consideration, Hepresenta
tivo Tom Halliday, of Cairo, will not seek
the Democratic nomination for Congress in
the Eighteenth District. Mr. Halliday is
the son-in-law of Col. Staats Taylor, man
ager of the Cairo Trust Property, and also
partner with his brother, W. P, Halliday, in
several commercial and mining interests,
and finds that he would not have the time
to spare for such a canvass as he would be
required to make. This leaves ex-Judge
Monroe Crawford, of I" nion, as the leading
Democratic aspirant foi Congress.
Since the council has accepted lh" resig
nation of John J. Bird, Cairo has been with
out a )olico magistrate and, strange to say,
the American jieo)lo have never known the
difference. But the question naturally
enough arises, who will be the candidates
for the office at the next election. This we
don't know, but if we must have a colored
man in the office, we are for Elder Shores.
He would make an imjiosing magistrate,
and being somewhat of a Deniocrtt, wo
have full faith in his integrity and intelli
gence. Elder Bradley, who is now out of
the county jail on a bond of two hundred
d llar.s (perjury being the charg-- again-t
hiiii i and who is one of the most rattiicg
kind of ranting radical Hepub.ii ails would
never do. No; never!
We see from a sjveial teh-grani to tie
Inter-Ocean, that Senator Logan savs that
tho dispatch to the Chicago Tribune of the
Huh itist., from St.. Louis, and others of the
same import, slating that he had combined
with Secretary Sherman or any other man
to cat ry Illinois for him. and that he was
running acatmid ite for g ivernor, is wholly
false. H'1 says he is not int"itering in the
gube'iiatori al contest, nor do.-s he expect to
doso; that the Hejmblieans of Illinois are
perfectly comp tent to decide that i!i 'stin
without his interference: that, so far as the
presidential question is concerned, his jiosi
tion is well known by all his fri'-n Is und
enemies; that he is, and has been lr un the
first, a Ornnt man: and Ins not in any way
disguised the fact from any one. He think s
Grant could be elected w ithout a doubt,
when any other candidate might render the
contest doubtful; that Gr uU would carry
fiom three to five Southern States, and
would surely carry New York: that tic
times for the last few months portend evil;
and that Grant would b" a safe and reliable'
man in a great emergency. Senator Log i n
9ays he can sujiport any good man, but, if
the Hejmblieans want to elect without a
doubt, Grant is the man. and if it be left to
the people he will be the man. To say that

business here, certainly deserve credit for
their pluck and energy. In its earlv day
they were determined to make it an enter
prising town; her business men of to-day
deserve, honor for their determination to
muke her a city of enterprise. There seems
to bo a unit ot feeling, and all aro
zealous in the eflort to make Jonesboro a
city of more than ordinary enterjirise; cap
ital that heretofore has been idle,
is now being put in use. Among the busi

and ;;tock to the amount of ti,000, has
been subscribed, for the jiiirposo of csi.nb
