During thu late high stage of the Mis

a fearful rite, A fine dwelling house of
Mr. James Fale'ity, which a year or two
ago whs a half-mile from the river, is now
considered ill danger ot going in, and wo
presume will have to be torn down to be
removed. The dike put in last summer is a
nullity, the banks rolls in behind it the
saiui a ever. Some of the good people
there are in actual und constant dread of
the Mississippi cutting through into the
Okwn, and the caving in of diu bunks in
the spring is nearly us much dreaded us

In look'uiL' over the proceedings of the
circuit court iu many adjoining counties,
we see that many indictments have been re
turned for carrying concealed weapons. We
believe that if the law was enforced in that
resiiect iu this county, it would be a whole
some thing. It has been common of late
for tin' young bloods when under the "in
fbieiice," to make free use of their revol
vers, much to the terror and danger of
every one near. There is no wcasion for
any man to carry a pistol iu this county.
The next grand jury had just to well look
into this a little.

The vagabonds who find their way into
our city jail should bo made to work daily
at something. It is not enough that they
clean the crossings in muddy

and whistle and sing in llry weather, but
Lthey should be made to work upon our
streets with us much regularity us they re
ceive their meals. Eighth ft reel and Com

dition, and these men who make their brags
that they can live upui the city without
labor should lie made to keep them, nnd in
fact all ourstreets, in atleast such n condition
that traffic upon them wilt not he imposi

they will have gone to the dogs, before that
Tally one more for John A. Logan.
Four years ago Chester P. Davis, of Monti
cello, ran tor Senator. Two weeks before
th" election he became frightened, und, go
ing to D 'cntur, implored Senator Oglesby
to come into the district and help him.
Kind-hearted old Dick responded to the
appeal, and Davis was elected. Last win
ter Oglesby coutidently counted on Davis
helping him back to the Federal Senate,
but Davis joined forces with Logan. To
day Davis returns home from Springfield
with a commission as Deputy United States
Mrishal in his pocket. The interest in said
commission centers in the fact that it was
made in Washington, and not in Springfield.
Thus Logan continues to reward his follow
ers. Old man Mayborne, or Geneva, and
MeCIcllan. of Galena, are the only retiring
Senators unprovided tor.
The counsel for Harnett Hernard. the
woman who was some time ago sent to the
city jail by n jury of six citizens, for gen
eral liad character, have instituted proceed
ings to have her released under a writ of
habeas corpus. We understand that said
counsel asked J udgeHaker's opinion as to the
legality of the ordinance under which the
woman was convicted, and that the judge
gave it as his opinion, that the ordinance
was perfectly legal. But, thai, if it were
possible to wrench from it any other mean
ing than that which appeared upon its face,
by a process of ingenious reasoning, twist
ing of words and ft general pctvcrinn of
terms, he preferred that it should not be
done in tavor ot a c.iass oi criminals sucn
as the woman above referred to was. The
Judge's head is level as it always is.
Carmi Times : "Three men have been
killed within the bounds of this county in
side of a vear, and a fourth one is hovering
between life and death from the effects of a
cutting received last night. A few years
ago it was customary to send to the peni
tentiary from this county two or three con
victs each year, but for the past three years
the number s"nt up has ranged from ten to
lghteen. These lac would indicate that
public sentiment needs building up
and elevating here. and we
might add that the elec
tion of men on account of their ability and
worth, rather than on account of their being
"good fellow? who will set 'em up," should
be the first step taken. These persons who
wear long faces on Sunday, talk so "sweet
and nice" at Sunday School, and when on
th" streets work for the interest of men who
are far from being men of tin; right stamp,
are to a great degree responsible for the
low stale of society,

The darkness of our streets and the ruin
and the generally threatening aspect of the
weather last night, doubtless had much to
do with the attendance at the regular week
ly gathering of our temperance people. In
point of numbers it was not a very large
one, but this must not he taken as an indi
cation of a lack of interest on the part of
those devoted to temperance. It was the
night for the regular weekly gathering of
the lleform Club, but last night
having been set apart for the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union, the
ladies of the Union conducted the meeting
and we must say that the general character
of the proceedings were highly iBteresting
from beginning to eml. All who partici
pated in the exercises peif nine 1 their par's
to perfection and not ihe slightest hitch
occurred to mar the beauty of the entertain
ment. The music and singing was excel
lent and equal to any concert that was ever
given here at fifty cents admission
and the declamations, original essays
addresses and recitations, were instructive us
well as interesting, showing much research
and real talent, and reflecting much credit
upon their authors. Never was there
an entertainment that was nioe
a complete success or deserved more pruise.
No one present could possibly have remain
ed passive to the influences for good which
pervaded the entire proceedings, and no
one who failed to he present can realize
the extent ot his loss in not attending this
most delightful of all the club's meetings.
The meeting was called to order by Mrs.
G. M. Alden, president ot the Union, who
is a lady of much good sense and who has
displayed a commendable energy in the
temperance cause. Mrs. F. S. Kent and
Mrs. 15. V. George, upon the request of the
president, took seats upon the platform.
"All hail the power of Jesus' name" was
th u sung by the audience under the direc
tion of Mr. W. F. McKco with Miss
Fannie Barclay at the organ.
A brief ami earnest prayer was then of
fered ufter which the president, Mrs. Al
den, delivered, in an unembarrassed and
fluent manner an address, which com
manded the closest attention. She was
pleased, she said, to see so large a uiimbcr
of gentlemen present on so dis.igreeeble a
night and thought they deserved to be com
plimented. The ladies had of late received
all the compliments, and while they were
ilexrrving of some she believed th:;
gentlemen were deserving of no
less for the energy they had
displayed so far for the advancement of
the cause. She further complimented the
gentlemen on their good looks, and said,
in substance, that there were no red-nosed,
blear-eyed men present and thus. who
formerly --ported them were now minus
these undesirable. ornaments. Many
sensible things wen; said, and she was r
"Wine is a mocker" was then sung I y the
quartette ami was rendered inainunncr
which elicited general admiration. After
this Mrs. A I. Sloo read an original papr of
much merit which was listened to itli
willing ears and ut the close she received
the hearty appluse of the audience. After
the reading of the paper another sung was
sung by the quartette which received such
applau.se as was perhaps never before pro
duced by the same number of people in the
hull. The audience was not satisfied
until a willingness was evinced
by the quartette to repeat the song and not
until then did the clapping of hands and
stamping of feet cease. We may here add
that if the singing of last night is a sample
of that which may be expected by the pub
lie at the musical concert which the Re
form (Jlub contemplates giving, it will un
doubtedly be a success from every point of
A recitation, "L"iirn to say no," was then

recitation riot only pleased, but also effected
A paper written by Mrs. Thompson, of
Anna, was read by Mrs. Rittenhouse. Hut
before commencing the reading she stated,
among other things, that Mrs. Thompson
had been in the temperance work long be
fore temperance was thought of iu Cairo,
and that she was the President of the Wo
mans' Christian Temperance Union uf An
na. The paper proved to be well written,
and full of interest ami was well read and
"Hope, wrestle and gain" was next sung
by the quartette, after which Mrs. 15. Y.
George read a polished address, which con
tained many words of encouragement. At
the close of this, Mrs. W. H. Wunlncr, for
merly of this city, in response to an invita
tion delivered a briet and earnest address, of
which we would bo pleased to give at leait
the outline!) to our readers, 1ut Und it

Chicago Tribune: "Congressman
Thomas, of the Eighteenth District, has
been having trouble with postolliee aspir
ants in Sparta, Chester, Du (ioin, and
Cairo. In the latter city Judge Bird, the
colored politician, has arrayed nearly all
the colored voters against Thomas and
Postmaster McKeaig, though the opposition
is not considered sufficient to endanger
Thomas' chances of re-election."
Yes, Congressman Thomas has been b.iv-

his action toward the Republican voters of
this district, white and black, but it is the
colored voters we wish to call his attention,
From (lie above extract the Chicago
Tribune speaks very lightly iu regard to
Ihe colored voters of this district. There
is a dissatisfaction existing, in Du 0,uoin
and Cairo, in regard to the postoHi.-cs ut
tliee places, and if Mr. Thomas does
not step forward and explain it away, lie
will never be even nominated, much less re
elected. The Republican parly of the Eighteenth
district cannot all' ud to play w ith the col
ored vote, w lieu it Is backed lip by some of
the leading white politicians. This dissat
isfaction is tn.t solely a in gio all'air, but 1
can point to ilis.sa:isti-1 white lie n.
It is true. Judge Bird made the liht in
person, and the Chicago Tribune uccuses
him us having arrayed the color, d voters
against Thomas, and surely they are, mid if
that gentleman expects any further honor:,
at the hands of the negro or the parly, there,
mu-t be something done.
After Thomas' election he seemingly
turned his back upon his be-t and truest
political friends. The Eighteenth district
is Republican by u very stua'.l majority,
therefore, the party has but little to bua-t
of, and our word for it. the m-xt Republican
nominee will not have a Josh Allen to op
pose, but a Democrat, that will have a char
leeord and clean hands. Oi:. yes. the negro

looked after on election, and that is t till
him full of whi-ky and kind words. W
say, that until the negro can think and
act for himself, he w ill never amount to a
"hill of beans."
Now, wo would say t i Mr. Thomas and
the Tribune, read and reflect, for th" col
