It i Asskhtk.d that the ordinary cosine

Chas. Boone, the young negro who
some time ago entered the residence ot
Mrs. Deer and carried off a mirror has
been given two years in the reform school
by Judge Yocum. This is the fellow's
second trip to that institution.
We very clearly see the necessity of

The case of Nott vs. the people, which
created considerable talk, some tune back,
will come up before Judge Yocum on next
Monday. It is to be tried by a jury, and
since considerable wituesses are to be exam

sumed before a decision will be reached.
When will the times improve? is the

Deputy Sheriff Olmsted left the city
last night for the reform school. He had
in charge the two negro boys who, a few
days ago, were arrested by OlHcerSchuckers
and Wooteu for stealing coal from the cars
of the narrow gauge road. They were
sent to the school for a term of three years
by Judge Yocum.
At the present session of the county
court Judge Yocum has transacted
quite a large amount of business,
which is of general interest to the public
and which will be found in another col
umn, The busijess of this term has, so
tar. been transacted with remarkable celer
ity, ami this fact alone shows that the
judge presses the bench with eminent fit
We are glad to state that Mr. Knowlcs,
agent of tlte Equitable, although still con
fined to his room at the Planters' House is
improving rapidly, and his entire recovery,
is only a question of a few days. Mr. K.
speaks in high terms of the attention he
has received from the proprietor of the
Planters' Mr. Thompson, during his sick
ness. Nine hundred pounds of fiat writing
paper to be ruled into note heads, bill
heads, letter heads, bills lading, etc., were
yesterday received lit Tins Bcllktin job of
tlce. A man named A. Hudson, uncle of
Cuptain Newman, of the Champion, was
shot and Instantly killed yesterday, near
Ogjeu's landing, by a party named Sim
mons, It is reported' that Hudson went to
the house of Simmons for tlte purpose of
raising a disturbance, which resulted as
above. Hudson received a heavy charge of
buckshot in the ubdomen und another in
the back of the head. Simmons gave
himself up to Ihe'authorities at Blandville,
an I the preliminary examlnatiou took
place yesterday. Hudson was a bad man
and feared by the people of his neighbor
hood. The attorneys of E. P, Davis, Messrs.
Liucgar A Lansden, last evening received
a telegram from tlw clerk of the supreme
court at Ottawa, stating that the supreme
court now in session in that city, had grant
ed a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of
Mr. Davis. After Judge Baker
refused to grant the writ, Mr.
Davis' attorneys prepared a pet
ition embracing the same points, we are
informed, as were in the petition presented
to Judge Baker and forwarded it to the
supreme court, and upon that the writ was
granted. We understand the question is
as to the sufficiency of the writs issued by
the circuit court of Alexander couuty.
Dan Rice is not as successful on the
rostrum, delivering lectures, as he was in
the circus ring, cracking jokes. The im
pression made upon Ins mind by the
preaching of Mr. Moody, although it did
not amount to conversion, induced Dan to
abandon bis cups and to devote his time in
the attempt to induce others to follow his
example. He visited a town in Missouri
with the intention of delivering a tem
perance lecture. His coming was announced
several days previously in flaming posters,
and Dan was fondly anticipating the gather
ing iu of a golden harvest. When the hour tor
commencing the lecture arrived, however,
there were just two persons in the house.
He deserves better luck and if the good
wishes of Cairo people could avail hitn
aught, his success would be assured in
whatever he might undertake.
On the 20th proximo a police magis
trate is to be elected to fill the vacancy oc
casioned by the resignation ot J. J. Bird,
and, notwithstanding the fact that it is
rather early to speak about the matter now,
yet, it may not be entirely amiss to say a
few words as to the kind of a man who
should be elected to fill the vacancy. As
has of late been amply demonstrated, the
office of police magistrate is a very
important one, and the man who fills it
is as much responsible for the moral condi
tion of our city as the mayor himself. This
being the case, the people should in
the future interest themselves in
the matter and should elect
an honest and competent man to the posi
tion, whose name would not suggest to
every mind an incontinent tritler, who
smites with his mouth and smirks with his
eye; who holds the rod to strike the crim
inal and smites only the law to make a gip
for criminals to pass through. He should
be a man who has no axe to grind, aud
who, regardless of consequences, would de
light in measuring out exact justio; to all;
and he should be unlike the man who, upon
driving :t thief out of his house, asked the
rascal's pardon for inte-.fering with h'u
plans of pleasure and profit. Iu
short, be should be an indepen
dent man, who knows the laws and
has the back bone to punish criminals to
the fullest extent of the law, when necessa
ry; a man who respects public opinion und
is influenced thereby when it is right, and
who scorns to cater to any class for the
sake of popularity or selfish interests.
These remarks are not intended as a reflec
tion upon our present justices, with whom
we have smoked the pipe of peace; but
they are intended to awaken, from their Rip
Van Winkle sleep, those of our good people
who find abundance of time iu complain
ing of existing wrong, but have no time to
"waste" in attempting to remedy that
wrong on election day, and who would
whisper into every man's cur: "Vote as
you please but please don't bother me."
They are such men and we have many of
them who should be aroused who should
awaken to the fact that tolerance of crime
is Intolerance of virtue, and that the man
who lets the villain off is the villain's
patron. These facts they should give the
proper weight and at the proper time do
the proper thing.

say, that he was fined five dollars and costs
which, being a man of means, he paid.

It is mainly through the personal efforts
of .Mr. Hart man that our people are priv
ileged to see this greatest of living actresses,
who appears isi Cairo Saturday night in
"Macbeth." The Denver Tribune says of
"The opera house, last evening, on the
occasion of Junauschek's appearance iu
"Macbeth," was crowded to its utmost ca
pacity, upstairs and down, until standing
room was scarcely to be obtained, aud gen
tlemen filled the aisles, the outer circles,
and in tact every available inch of space
that afforded a view of the stage. The pre
sentation of the tragedy was a signal suc
cess. This much must be said in favor of
Jiieiuschek, regardiess of her great acting
power, that she surrounds herself only with
the best talent procurable. Every scene ot
the heavy tragedy was well presented, aud
Janauschek again gave proof of her unap
proachable force as a great artist. Site was
twice called before the curtain, while the
audience repeatedly demonstrated their ap
preciation by loud ami enthusiastic bursts
of applause during the performance. She
excelled in the sleep-walking s?eue. which
perhaps gives her the best opportunity of
displaying her brilliant talents as an artiste
who holds the mirror up to nature."
A BRI DAL GREETING.
Iteepcctfillly ItiKcrllied to Mr Mid Mr. Hiram E.
We send thee greetiug. oh! fair young
The busy fingers of Cupid have tied ,
His silken cord in a love-knot sweet.
And holds in bondage the bride we greet.
May she never shrink from the rosy chain ;
May she never sigh for freedom again:
May she ever answer love's silv'ry call.
Where'er its echoes may chance to fall.
Oh! Time, touch lightly her shining
Oh ! Love, bring all thy pearly so fair;
A gleaming band to crown her brow,
Where Cupid's kisses arc linring now.
Come join! Come join! in a gay salute
Bring ringing lyre, and silv'ry lute.
Oh, voice of song with thy sweetest strain.
Come Join! Come join! in the glad re
frain. Oh! bridegroom, 'midst the quiet dells
Of love laud, sweet with blooming bells:
Thou has brought but one sweet flower
To love and cherish day by day.
When borne on life's dark turbid tide.
Thou hast caught a glimpse of its dark
May the bride we greet be safe from harm,
In the shelt'ring fold of thy manly arm.

From reports of the state department of
agriculture, just published, we learn that
tlie average yield per acre of the wheat
crops of l77, 1S7S Mid 1579 exceeds that
of any corresponding period, and is as fol
lows: 1577. lfi.4 bushels per acre: l5?s,
14.0 liushe'is per acre; H70, 15.73 buhels
per acre au average tor the three years of
lij.35 bushel per acre. The total yield
of wheat raised in the state for
the three years named, exceeds
that of iiuy similar period, as will be seen
by the following figures: The yield for
