Dan Rice is in the city, just returned
from an extentive tour through the south

large audiences and enthusiastically greet
ed. He will lecture in Temperance hall
to-morrow night. No admission will be
charged and it is needless to express the
wish that the hall may be crowded, for that
is sine to be the case.
The river water, which was let into the
city through sewers a tew days ago with
the iuteution that It should wash out the
low places, has entirely disappeared and
answered its purpose. We have heard it
rumored that one of our up-town gardeners
whose vegetable-garden was partly covered
by the water, intends tt the city for two
thousand dollars damages. How well
founded the rumor.is wo know not.
Miss Mary Dixon will treat the, people
of Cairo to an elocutionary entertainment
next Tuesday night. Judgiug from thj
numerous complimentary noties she has re
ceived from the press all over the couutry,
we conclude that she has a remarka
ble talent. She is said to have a wonder
control of her voice and, together with her
other talents, will undoubtedly give our
citizens full satisfaction and much pleasure.
For the benefit of those concerned, we
are requested to state that it was not Mike
Powers who had Anthony McTigue arrested
the other day, but that the latter had the
former arrested. Mr. Powers had driven
uis team over a certain sidewalk and Mr,
McTigue, believing that Mr. P. had thereby
committed an offense, caused his arrest.
The case was dismissed by Justice Olmsted
before whom it was tried.
The following, which we clip from the
Memphis Appeal, is worthy of the notice of
our authorities, since it conveys an idea how
satisfactory drainage is secured in Mem
phis: "The drainage tile-pipes are laid
along with the sewer-pipes in the streets
and alleys, which will insure pure, dry soil.
A constant stream of water is now pouring
from the outlet drainage tiles into Bayou
Gayoso, which proves that they are accom
plishing the good sanitary work for which
they are intended.''
A very hotly contested-case was that of
Ellen Ramsey before Ju.tiee Olmsted yes
terday. She was charged with being an
inmate of a house of ill-fame, and witnesses
were produced by the dozen, both by the
defense and prosecution. After they had
all been heard and the case thoroughly
argued by the attorneys, the woman was
found guilty, and was fined twenty dollars
and costs. Such decisions will have a whole
some effect upon our little city.
Probably never in the experience of
any Cairo tobacconist has there been such a
large, steady and ever increasing demand
for a favorite cigar, as in the case ot the
"Faultless." The 'run" on this brand
is simply wonderful and yet it is
not so wonderful, after all, when
we remember that this favorite
cigar possesses nil the merits that is
claimed for it that its best recommenda
tion i- itself that having once tried, mean
to continue buying it. Another thing to
commend it is its cheapness. 'uly o cents.

Several weeks ago we mentioned the
breaking open of two tool chests in EichoH"
mill by two negro boys. The boys made
their escape and were not heard of again
until one of them wasye.-terday brought be
fore Squire Osljorh while wu were present
in his court. He was a lad about thirteen
years of age, and while he stood before the
Squire his little fists were nervously
clenched and his whole frame
shuok from fright. Officer Woottn, who
had the boy in charge stated
that he had found him fi.sh
iug ou the Illinois Central wharf-boat; that
immediately upon seeing him the boy had
dropped his fishing pole and had, to use a
slang phrase, "taken to his heels." The
officer followed and chased him up und
down several streets and around a block or
two when the youngster, reaching thf Alio
Levee, ran into the river and attempted to
swim across. The officer fearing that he
might drown came away and after the boy
ventured out took him under arrest. His
tna! will take place before Squire
(shorn at 10 o'clock this morning.
A fruitful sour4 of evil, from a sani
tary standpoint, are the over crowded
houses in various portions of the city.
Wilcox's block contains twenty-six persons,
Vincent's blockcontains about forty persons
and an old rookery up town, on the corner
of Nineteenth and Poplar, contains about
twenty more than it ought to. If these peo
ple were of a class who seek to keep their
premises clean and healthy it would not be
so injurious to the general public;
but they are generally of the filthi
est character, living in their respec
tive haunts like so many hogs in a pen and
caring nothing for the effect their miserable
life may have upon themselves or those
around them. In the house, iip-tovvn, three
children have died within the last week, un
doubtedly from the effect of their miserable
surroundings. Health Officer Orr has turn
ed his attention to these dens, und will, we
have no doubt, soon lessen the evil in sonic
way or other, although we believe he will
not find an ordinance by which he may he
untlioni'd to lessen the number of tht oc
cupants. The Sun of last evening says: "Will
tin; Republicans, white and black, who ure
opposed to Congressman Thomas.pleasc tell
us where is the man m this district who
would be a candidate, that can get more
votes than John Robert? They say he can't
be nominated, and if nominated, he can't
be elected. Will theyjiist indicate the
man who can:"
The ubove questions arc asked of our Re
publican brethren and since we ure not one
of that breed we, perhaps, have no busi
ness to answer them. But notwithstanding
we will answer them for the enlightenment
of our Republican readers. To the first
question, "who can get more votes than
John Robert," we can truthfully reply that
almost anybody can. The Sun is evidently
trying to deceive our colored people by
asking questions of the above kind and
trusts to their ignorance to be "bull dozed"

will therefore say for the benefit of our col-!

ing set aright that Thorn is leceived

Wiley received two years before and that

of his opponent and not to hi owu popular

men who are superior to Thomas in ability

HALLIDAY AND OBERLY.
Two of the ablest and mo-t popular men
of Southern Illinois are Hon. Thus. W.
Halliday and Hon. John II. Oberly. Both
have for a number of years rendered valu
able services in the ranks of the Dcmoc:atie
party, und both have the confidence not
only of the paity to which they belong, hut
uiso of the better class of the Republicans
who, in part, constitute the Republican party
of the Eighteenth congressional district.
We have this week received several let
ters from prominent men of different coun
ties, asking us to "urge with vigor" the
claims of the former gentleman for
congres, and the latter for the gubernato
rial position and we must . ay that it gives
us pleasure to mm.' the merits of the-e two
men of Alexander county recognized as
they are. Neither of them are seeking of
fice and we are not certain that they could
be prevailed upon to accept the positions
mentioned should they be tendered them:
but we do know that no two men of this
district could get the hoiit support of all
classes more readily and that hence
none could with greater ease achieve the
desired success for the Democratic party.
It is trim that we have in this district
many able and iullueiitial Democrats who
would grace any position to which they
might be elected: men who have served
the party wisely ami industriously for a
number of years und w ho deserve well at
its hands and at the hands of the people
generally. But we must insist, und do so
candidly and without detracting from the
gentlemen in our mind's eye, when we say,
that there are none more competent and
worthy than the two gentlemen whose
names head this article.
In electing a man for congress we believe
the people would not go far wrong in decid
ing upon cither Halliday, Hartell, Crawford
or some other good men we might name.
Either of them, as one ol our Republican
exchanges truly says, would furnish exceed
ingly lively exercise for the best man thy
Republican party can nominate.
But while this is true, we must have n
a mini who w ill cany our party to success
with certainty on November next, und the
man who ciiii do this beyond uu earthly
doubt is Thus. W. Halliday. We are not
iiilkienced by (iiny particular personal
frieiidijhip in making this declaration.
Wo care no more for him than we do lm
any other respectable man and declare our
self for him solely because we are con
scious of his strength and worth. While
in the state legislature ho proved him
self one of the most far seeing
men of that body; an industrious wurker
for the people, whoso action , wore always
applauded as the heighth of wisdom uUJ
whose good use of common sense an I h-, ,
knowledge made him. with several others,
so to speak, the salt which kept that putrid
ldy trom total decay. He is an unassum
ing gentleman who has rendere 1 more vi'u
able services to the city of Cairo and Alex
ander county than any other man; and this
he has done cheerfully and without remun
eration. He is a man who has been invari
ably successful in all his undeitakings
ot whatever character. He
wuj never defeated at the polls, an I invari
ably r an ahead of this ticket. Ho is a mn
of means, and U therefore capable ot thor
oughly canvvs-ing the dUtriit and we are
satisfied will do so if he can be prevailed
upon to accept the nomination. To nomin
ate a man ot less means and less strength
would be a grave error of which w v, fj ji
the party will not be guilty.
About Mr. Oberly we nee I liar ily siy

with inter,.-t an 1 adiuiration from the tin.'.'

aud Tin: Bii.i.tiiN is ptcpared to chal

He is emphatically a self-made man; one
who has attained as great a popularity as
auy man in Illinois, and w' o is

it as his liu-iii"- and duty to maintain and
defend the ideal republic of its founder,
and would administer the government c!
thi- state without extravagance, fraud or
injustice. He -would vigilantly triv- to
preserve the foundations of equal right und
equal protection, in all tilings which
c mcerns the tite, and in all that concerns
the souls and bodies of men, their lives, li

leaning strongly, as may be seen from a.'l
his specchos.toward that fiscal system.which,
if applied to this country, would bring pros
perity and solve all dependent questions.
Wo presume ir is hardly necessary to
mention it, but for all that it is not amiss
to say that the Democratic convention of
this county should instruct for both of the
gentlemen above named. They are beyond
nil question the choice of the people, and
being so, the instruction for them, in our
opinion, is already insured.

LEIGH HUNT'S PANSIES.
Soft through the open window
Floats tlie perfume of thy breath,
Like Vasimta's gift of parting
To one whose life is death.
Roses red, as fragrant nectar
Sprinkled where Adonis fell,
White us a siiowtlake cluster,
Pink as sea-tinted shell.
Fair masque of tender beauty
On the sable lace of earth
Farewell, farewell, ye whisper,
From the mometit of thy birth.
But with it golden tresses
Escaped from purple hood,
The pansy's emblematic,
To me,' of all that's good.
Leigh Hunt's sweet favorite blossom,
In his prison yard it grew.
Caressed and loved and cherished,
As though his grief it knew.
The pansies bring the vision -
Of a fariy-Und of art,
A rose-liued clouded ceiling.
And a sorrow-clouded heart.
His words scorn ever written,
In the tints of his pet flower
That gentleness and patience
Hold Iron-silken power.
