Smith, ot the Vienna Journal and Mc-

rial vitriol nt one auother, with real Texan

that McYickers and his printers were sill

houses. Mac's paper, issued the followiu"
day, fairly glowed with fiery expletives, like
these: "Nothing could be a more infa

wore the horns for cutting altout 10,000
feet of Inch boards in one hour's time.
Mauy of our readers "pooh J poolied !" the
statement and said wo were not "up" lu
saw mill literature, and didn't know what
we were talking about; und others
declaring that inasmuch as such
a "cut" would necessitate the moyeinent of
the saw through a log at the speed of a first
class steamboat, the matter was dismissed
as unworthy of ciedenco. But we scarcely
told half of the story. Under date ot Sat
urday, May 19, 1807, James Ellis and O.
G. Barriger, measurers, aud John A. Mil
ler, timer, jointly rertify, that in an actual
cutting time of thirty minutes and fifty
four seconds, the mill sawed, with a (Jingle
70-inch circular saw, the enor
mous quantity of 10,571 feet
of inch poplar boards! The entire
time consumed, includiug the intervals in
volved in getting logs iu position, backing
the carriage aud sawing the lumber, was (19
minutes 17 seconds. The fastest sawing
done was during an interval of 3 minutes
22 seconds, when upwards of 400 feet to
the minute were cut. For all these state
ments we now hold the documents.

The depth and dimensions of our sipe

slowly, but surely. And right here, may

water may be hastened ten or fifteen per
cent.: bet if there be any reason why we
may not rid ourx-lves of a nuisance even of
the proportions of that with which we are
now dealing, within five days what is that
giHid reason; Larger levee pipes or a
greater uumber of the present size, would
accomplish th,at much desired end. and it
strikes us, with much force, that a lew

better advantage than in providing them.
There seems to be a disposition to de-
ay the appointment of a health officer and
to taking other.action under our health or

DEATH OF MR. AMES GASH.
Ths following announcement was left at
The Bulletin oflico, nt a late hour yester
day evening: "Died, ut his residence in
this city at 20 minutes to 4 o'clock, April
10, 1380, Mr. JamesOasli, in the 4(lth year
yf his age. The remains will be conveyed
to Villa Ridge for burial, by special train,
that ' will leave Cairo at II p. m., to-duy.
Services over the body will be held iu the
Presbyterian church nt 2 o'clock.- The
friends of the family are respectfully invit
ed to attend."
Mr. Gash was born in Carlisle, England,
en the ISth day of August 1834. He came
to America at the age of seven years, and
spent several years of his life in Lockport,
N. V., and Delevan, Ills. He served 4
years in the army of the union, and was
with Sherman in his famous march to the
sea. Duriug that march he contracted the
disease of which he died. At the end of
his service in the army he located in Cairo,
acceptiug employment in the Novelty store
ot Mr. 0. R. Woodward, where he re
mained for the period of twelve yeai'B. Ho
was a member of the R. & R. Fire company
and of the Alexander county lodge of
Odd-Fellows; but among all the friends he
had iu Cairo or elsewhere, the best and
most confiding friends were among those
who knew him best. He died, as he had

FRIDAY NIOHTS MEETINO OK CITIZENS.
In discussing the proposition that in
volved an invitation to General Grant to
visit Cairo, Mr. Fisher thought it would
render the matter more formal, and be
more in accordance with prevailing custom
to have the invitation proceed from the city
Mr. Black, who had submitted a resolu
tion, confiding that trust to a committee of
five, saw no impropriety in a committee of
citizens extending such an invitation. He
thought it would be well enough, however,
to have the council's co-operation in the
Col. Wood, by consent, remarked
that prudent forethought suggested the
question , of funds. It was not
unknown that the hands of the council
were tied by charter restrictions, and no
aid could be expected from that quarter.
The only means for raising the funds re
quired, that occurred to him. was through
individual contributions. TUe question,
recurred, then, would the patriotic liberal
ity of our people, spur them to a proper
resxinse to calls for money ; He thought
it quite likely that the response would
equal the demand; but the question was a
preliminary one. and should be consid
ered. Mr. Fisher didn't 'apprehended a ne
cessity for the expenditure of a large
amount of money. Five hundred
dollars would probably meet all
necessary outlays. The excursion
to Belmont. he thought, would
provide for itself. He had no doubt the
money would be subscribed readily and
To bring matters to a focus Col. Rearden
moved that the committee of five suggested
by Mr. Black, be increased to fifteen, and
that that committee have full power to
look after all the details, fioin first to last.
He announced that as General Grant would
leave Hot Springs on the 10th. but little
time remained in which to perlect needful
arrangements; but a committee of fifteen
bv dividing into sub-committees, could
perform all the work in due season.
After a further discussion of the matter,
Mr. Black's motion as amend
ed by Col. Reardcn's motion,
was adopted, and the chuirman, after invit
ing the meeting to suggest names, selected
from the thirty suggested, the following:

For the Cairo llulletiu:
She was a kind creature, sweet and fair ,
With a gleam of gold on her wavy hair;
And the hand that painted the summer
With the same sweet color had tiug'd her
He was young, and proud, with majestic
And a flush of joy had touched his face.
As he lingered his tale of love to tell,
In the language to lovers known so well.
And the sweet day blush'd, and the scented
Touch'd softly the 'waves of the maiden's
And it press'd his lips with a balmy kiss.
While his soul was thrilled with its dream
A new day was born with its fragrant
Stirring the leaves of the bridal wreath;
Beneath skies of sapphire, with murmur
At the altar they pledged their nuptial vow.
And the days sped swiftly, as sweet dav
Not a phantom of woe love's heart to chill;
Their home was a haven of perfect rest,
With the blessing of heaven, their heart
Dear children came; and the bright year
With a flush of sunrise, toofuirto last:
But, she lived to see the sunlight fade
And hpr life grow dark w ith a midnight
Ah! he died he died, and her face bow'd
With a kiss of angiihh upon his brow;
The love of htr life the life of her heart,
How could he from home, and its joys de
part. He would answer her pleadings never
Never hear him calling, her name "L?.-
His baud ne'er again, smooth her wary
And she proud for his sake, it was so fair.
And the days went by, as ull sad das
When we watch with sighs for the sun's
And her cheeks grew pale, while her eye
Still waiting, aud watching to go to him,
An angel came, on a mission sent,
To gather the jewels to earth, but l1ff;
And he came one day, when the sun's red
Was a marvel of glory to behold.
And she heard him calling her name
Still calling it softly o'er, and o'er;
Lulling her soul to a shadowy bleep,
He liore it away in its slum! n't deep.
He took the jewel -the casket left,
And the mourners came, of their trien 1
They shed their tear on the slumbering
But the Might of the soul they could nt
Ii! her cheeks had lost their feverish hue
And they closed her eyes of faded blue-
Deep lines ot care, cross d her brow once
And threads o! gray, stieak'd her golden
I u a land of pansies and May flower bloom;
Far uwnv from the shares of griet an I
Where dazziing stars, in the arched ky
And the pearly flowers ot heavens entwine;
An angel stands-and winged, ami
He is bathed iu the gleaming light around;
A vision of beauty he seems to w ait.
As he lingers near the golden gate.
With a thrill of joy, lo! he bows his liea'l,
As Hashing open, the portals spread,
Xnd Death's angel, bears to Ins arms again,
A spirit freed from a world of pain.
As against his heart, his dear love lies,
Slit' opens her eyos with a sweet surprise
White robed, and.eiowned. nud with angel
With songs triumphant the bright arch
In this strange, sweet land, w ith its crystal
No bleaching hair, nud no fading eyes
Oh ! death is but life, on a fairer shore,
Where the angel carried sweet Leouor!
