We publish in another place, a com
munication signed, "J. W. II." suggesting
tho employment ot our petty offenders in
preparing rock for use in macadamizing
the streets. The Bulletin has repeatedly
called the attention of the council to the
wisdom of such a step, and urged them to
lose no time in taking it, but so far our
pleadings have been unheeded, mid we had
almost abandoned ourself entirely tu the
idea of an avalanche of petty crimi

and rivers of mud f r streets.
By a resolution introduced by Alderman
Wright in tho council at its last meeting
and passed by that body, the chief of
police was insructed to collect all the
license due the city, from whatever source,
except the merchants' license. The
merchants' license ore not being collected
owing to the tact that there is now a suit
pending iu our court concerning it, ami

The audience which gathered at the
Atheneuin last night to witness the presen
tation of Shakespeare's tragedy, "Mac
buth," by the Janauschek combination, was
large, appreciative ami fashionable. It is
useless to indulge in praise concerning her
acting, and suffice it to say, that her reputa
tion which had proceeded her caused our
people to expect much from her and that
they were not disappointed. Mr. Harry
Meredith, in the part of Macbeth, showed
a proper conception of the character and
gained many plaudits.
It gives us pleasure to call the atten
tion of the public to any firm that by strict

No preparations have yet been made
by our Irish citizens for a turn out on St.
Patrick's day, which comes on the l?th
inst., and in all probability no turn out will
be hail. Although extensive preparations
ate being made in some of the cities of
this state, the Irish people generally will
not celebrate that day with the splendor
which formerly characterized their celebra
tion of it. This is owing to the fact that
they have given liberally for the" relief of
the distressed in Ireland, and also because
they deem it improper to make much dis
play while their relatives on the isle are

Night before last four men came very
near losing their lives by the upsetting of a
skill' in which they were seated. They were
rowing up the Ohio river, and kept near
to tho Illinois shoro in order to avoid the
current, but as they neuron the McCoinb,
which was lying at the incline, a swift cur
rent met them, which, together with tho
suction of the boat, upset the skill", tumb
ling the contents consisting of four men
and several overcoats into tho river. Mr.
Downs, tho night watchman on the boat,
hearing the cries for help, at once came to
their assistauco and succeeded in rescuing
the whole party and the skill'. The coals
were the only things lost.
Brother Moody has done a marvelous
amount of preaching sinco he came to St.
Louis, and Brother Sankey lias dropped
honey from his lips in a pnrouinl stream of
sweet notes; and tho net results of their la
bors is that 2,100 sinners havn cmn-j to re

has agitated the atmosphere by tho utter
ance of 1,2.10,0 10 words, which is some
thirty times as many as there are in Wor
cester's Unabridged, aud whTch would nil
low about 502J words for everyone of the
2.100 converts, allowing that there uro no
backsliders among them. This Is rather a
largo quantity of verbal ammunition to
spend upon a single sinner, and shows the
earnest and indefatigable character of tho
remarkable evangelist. .

A few days ago wo chronicled the fact
that a certain ruffian, named Dillon, who
for some time had made Cairo his home,
hud ro'ibod a man between Cairo and
Mound City and had beaten his victim into
insensibility and laid him on the Cairo and
Vinconncs track so that a train might run
over him. Dillon made his way to PaJu
call aud the following, from thopaducah
News, explains the rest: "Officer Schuckers
ordered his arrest, having an idea that Dil
lan's victim, a stranger in Cairo, was slill
in the place, buf on finding him gone had
to order the rascal s release. Dillon has
left this place fearing, as he told Mr.
Geary yerterday when released, that the
Cairo fellows might change their notion."
A number of German ladies have de
cided to give a ball und supper at Turner
hall to-morrow night for the benefit ot
Mr. Jno. Hagcy, who, it will be remem
bered, cut his leg very severely and
has suffered for a number of mouths, his
life being at one time despared of. The
object is a noble one and the means
employed to nain it are certain
ly unobjectionable. Good music will be
furnished free of change by Mr. Eisenberg's
string band, and a sumptuous supper will
be spread by the ladies at the Usual hour.
Everybody should contribute to the cause j
eveu though they do not attend. But it is j
to be hoped that there will ho very large
attendance for the satisfaction of the ladies,
who have been so untiring in their efforts to
make the affair attractive and remunerative.
The Peoria city fathers held a recep
tion a few evenings since. The ladies came
in, numbering about half a dozen, headed
by Mrs" Hihhen, president of the Illinois
W. C. T. U.. and accompanied by gentle
men identified with the temperance cause.
Mrs. Ilibbcn was speaker for the party, and
addressed a powerful plea to the council
accompanied by a petition. The lady
asked for a discussion of the local option
question, and prayed that the city council
might appoint a time when the people
could bring the matter before them. She
asked, in the tenor of the petition, that the
question of license or no license be sub
mitted to the people at the coming spring
election, and that the women of Peoria be
permitted to vote at that election. And the
city fathers politely laid the petition on the
A bold robbery occurred at about b :;0
o'clock last niht at the residence of Mr.
Barney Crane, on Washington avenue, a
few doors from the corner of Twelfth
street, the robber securing one hundred
and fifteen dollars. Entrance was
gained to the house through a
trap door opening into the kitchen
from under the house, while Mrs. Crane was
out marketing. The robber ransacked the
house and finding one hundred dollars in a
trunk and fifteen dollars in u box, ou the
bureau, pocketed the money and made his
escape out of the house by the back way.
at the time Mrs. Crane entered by the
front door. The box on the
bureau contained several dollars
in silver which the rescal did not dis
turb. Since no particular persou is sus

Messrs. Jno. Sproat and Thos. Lancas
ter have been for some time busily engaged
in working our merchants up to the point
of fiction in organizing a fair association.
The ground having already been secured,
the object is to get money for the
building of fences and general preparations
for a county fair. The ground selected, is a
piece just above Kendal's f irm, within the
city limits, Our merchants seem to have
taken commendable interest in the
mutter and considerable money
has already been subscribed.
A charter is soon to be applied for and an
organization elfected. Every merchant,
with an eye to his own interests, should
strive to makethc association a success, and
thus secure to our city an Irresistable at
traction to tue producers and stock raisers
residing around about us,
Mr. A. Comings yesterday received,
from Secretary of State Harlow, the charter
for the Builders' and Loan Accociation, of
Cairo. The gentlemen who made applica
tion therefor, are Messrs. Alfred Comings,
Herman Myers, Henry Wells, Herbert E.
Spanlding, I). T. Linegar, Robert Hinklo
undg'has. C. Mason goWd men, all ol
them, That the organization will
prove u blessing to. our
people especially our poor people
there is no earthly doubt, since it will se
cure homes for many of them who wotthl
otherwise find it a very difficult mutter, or
even uti Impossibility to get them iu any
oilier way. Since the charter arrived, over
one hundred shares have already been
taken, and a week from Wednesday
next, directors will bo elected who will Hp
point the otllcers for the association. Those
who desire to take stock iu the association
and become members can do so by apply
ing to Justice Comings.
Tho question has been propounded to
us more than once of late, as to whether or
not in our opinion it would be wise to hold
a convention for the nomination of county
otlicers.aud, although it is yet early to argue
this question, we reply that sucrr a step ou
the part of the Democratic or Republican
parties would be very foolish and unwise.
There are doubtless u few men, good men
too, who desire to see politics dragged into
every election, even though their party be
the loser thereby iu order that they might
be afforded an opportunity of ruising h I
in the camp of the opposition and of
strengthening their party by a strong party
fight. Although often unreasonable,
we, more or less sympathise with these men
and could their object be attained in their
way could the party be strengthened and
the most competent and worthy men be
placed in our county offices by their efforts,
we would joyfully lend them a helping
hand. ' There are a few others, however,
who would be pleased to hold a conven
tion. They are the objectionable and un
popular men who desire office for them
selves or huvc friends whom they desire tD
see ride into office ou the party's back.
These men will talk lou lly and long for a
convention in order tj gain their scltMi
ends; and with these men we do not sym
pathise and would not so far forget ourself
as to assist them in their race for office.
We favor the holding of conventions in all
national aud state elections, but are
opposed to them iu county elections, since
no good can result from them to the pattv
and much bad may result therefrom to the
people. The man who would be nominated
by the Democratic convention, be" he ever
so competent, would, perhaps, stand a flat
tering chance of being defeated, while the
nominee of the Rmblicans incompetent
though he be might be elected. Thi-, it
is self-evident, is ! y no means desirable.
We need men iu our county offices who are
competent and experienced, and the very
best way to gi;t them is undoubtedly to let
the people use their own judgment in the
selection. The men who run for county
offices upon their own merits should, and
doubtless will be, personally known to
every voter in the county, and since this
will be the case, it is quite evident that no
putty lash will be neces-ary is iu fact objectionable-

To the editor of the Bulletin:
I desire to oiler n suggestion to our city
authorities, in reference to the macadamiz
ing of the streets. It is this: If they will
establish a work house where petty offend
ers ciin bo compelled to work out their fines,
breaking stone, the city will obtain the ma
terial tit the mere cost of loading
it upon the cars and the trans
portation to the city. After the
workhouse is once in good working order,
ono touin might be employed to distribute
the material upon tho streets decided upon,
ami iu the course of a tow yours the streets
would all show the effect of tho work with
only a very slight outlay to tho city, to say
nothing of the effect it would havo on va
grants, petty thieves, and other criminals,
Will you not urgo this plan, and at least
Imvc it investigated? J. W. II.
