GENERAL LOCAL ITEMS.
Notice in the columns, tea cent per line,
Mr. B. T. Blue, Was in the city yester
day. Judge Greeu is homo again from Cin
cinnati. It should be remembered that the
usual morning and evening services will be
held in all the churches to-day.
The original of Garfield's receipt for
the De Gollyer fee has been obtained, and
will be lithographed at once.
Garfield feathered his owa nest (pro
visionally) when he framed the bill doub
ling the president's salary. Did he have a
prophetic intuition of the future?
Capt. Shields, being a good Democrat,
it has been suggested that he be offered the
position of postmaster immediately after
the presidential election.
No braver nor better man than Win-
field S. Hancock ever trod the earth. It
can be said ot him as of tho Knight Bay
ard, "he is without fear and without re
proach." Mi33 Mary B. E. Grief, of Paducah,
who was a passenger on the Gus Fowler
yesterday, and who is on her way to St.
Louis, will remain in this city about a
week, visiting Mrs. Payne.
It is believed that Misa Gill, who died
a few days ago at the age of sixty, has, at
last, had her long desired want gratified.
She was the author of the popular song, "I
Want to Be an Angel."
Mr. Wm. McEwen shot what appeared
to liiui to be a mad dog yesterday. The
animal was running in a crazy manner
along Thirteenth street and was foaming at
The irreligious Radicals of Cairo, under
the good influence of the Democratic
nominees, are becoming moral and generally
religious. They walknboutour streets with
a meek air ; with downcast eyes aud long
A Republican exchange says that "the
religious press 13 highly pleased with Gar
field." It is a sad commentary on the re
ligious press to say that it is pleased with
Garfield's record. Our exchange probably
meant to say the irreligious press.
Agnes Smith was drunk yesterday.
She has gained a reputation for drunk
enness aud whea drunk, extremely disa
greeable. She was arrested yesterday in
one of her worst cases by Officer Tyler and
fined five dollars and costs by Justice Olm
sted. We yesterday inadvertantly got the
names of Tom O'Laughlin and Dennis
O'Callahan, badly mixed, and called the
former gentleman by the latter's name, and
the latter gentleman by no name at all.
But since both ot them survive, we pre
sume that it is "all the same."
Mr. Wm. II. Woodward, of Carbon
dale, one of the promineut attorneys of
that city, was in Cairo yesterday. Mr.
Woodward is a radical Republican, but
had the tairness to say of the Democratic
nominees for president and vice-president,
that they were "most excellent gentlemen."
We add new names to our already
large subscription list every day in the
week, which fact clearly shows that the
people regard The Bulletin in the proper
light as the newspaper ot Southern Ilii
uoi. Many of our nvw subscribers, lately
received.d not reside in this city.
The steamer Gus Fowler was here from
Pa lucali on her first trip yesterday. She

nificent little boat, w hich will no doubt be

is expected that she will be able to make
eleven miles an hour but this is somewhat
Garfield says that he is not supersti
tious, but that he has felt the utmost con
fidence in his success since he learned that,
about the time that the ballot was being
taken on which he was nomiuatcd, an
American eagle lighted on the root of his
house at Mentor. The probabilities are
that the supposed eagle was one of his own
turkeys that had strayed from the Hock.
Mr. W. P. Dunavant, of the great rail
road contracting firm of Duiiavuut & Co,
who is now seeking to employ l.fioi) men
and three huudrcd wagon and scraper teams
on the extension of the M. & O. railroad,
between Columbus, Ky, and this city,
called at The Bulletin office and asked
permisBiou to subscribe for our paper,
which permission was cheerfully granted.
The tax sale that was begun by Sheriff
Hodges some time ago has progressed
quietly and steadily until block forty-five
lias been reached and not a single lot for
feited. This is a remarkable showing. It
has no parallel in the fiuancial history of
the county, and shows cither t decided im
provement in the state of tho affairs of our
citizens, or an Improvement iu the solection
of a man to fill the office of collector.
J. Madison Wells, of the intamous
Louisiana returning boarJ that counted out
tho Democratic electors in that stats in
1370, is said to be as happy as a lark over
Garfield's nomination, the reason being that
he regards hiinsolf as particularly solid
with the Republican candidate for nresl
dent on account of their close connection in
the Louisiana fraud four years ago, and he
therefore indulges in great expectations in
tho event of Garfield's election.
It is argued by the friends of Hon. D
T. Lincgar that he should receive the nom
ination for representative from this district,
for several reasons. Firstly, because he is
in every respect qualified for the position
secondly, because he has for several years
worked industriously and effectually for
the Democracy, and thirdly, because -he
expects to take an active part in the com
The Illinois Central railroad will run
an excursion train from Cairo to Clear
Lake in Iowa on the 13th of July. Tho
fare for the round trip will be only
thirteen and a half dollars, and the sights
with which the traveler meets and the
scenery at the placo of encampment, are the
grandest ever seen by any one. The excur
sion is destined to overshadow every other
means that will be presented to the people
for general enjoyment.
We publish a call this morning which
requests the presence of every Democrat at
No. 77 Ohio levee on Tuesday evening
next for the organization of a Hancock and
English club. It is the duty of every man
to have the interests of his country at heart
and we hope every Democrat will be there
and make it his business to see that his
neighbor is also present. The club prom
ises to be the largest ever before organized
The custom of putting large strawber
ries at the top of the basket and the small
er and poorer ones below, seems not to be
of purely American invention, being men
tioned by Queen Elizabeth, who said of
her ministers : "When first chosen by me,
all goes well, for they do put forth their
best virtues like the large strawberries in
market baskets; but by and by small vices
and taults appear in them like the little
fruits hidden beneath the big,"
The Western Catholic, published in
Chicago, contains the tollowing concerning
Hon. John H. Oberly: "Hon. John H
Oberly, the great Egyptian Statesman,
whoso name is a household word in South
ern Illinois, was unanimously nominated
for secretary of state. Oberly's name is
tower of strength to the ticket, and the
fact of bis beinj a candidate will bring
out thousands of votes in the sonthern por
tion of the state, which have been in for
mer years lost to the party."
It is told of Sol. Silver that he pro
poses to take the measure ot one of the cus
tom house offices to-morrow. Sol. is
Democrat and will occupy one of the officee
after November next without a shadow ot
a doubt. The only thing he is at present
concerned about is its size and, if he finds
that satisfactory, he will rest his soul in
peace until after the election, when he will
hang his hat on one of its pegs and take
Mr. W, B. Matthews, the father of our
fellow citizen M. W. Matthews, who for
merly resided in Centralis, has taken up
his home in this city, and knowing The
Billktix to be a "good thing," subscribed
for it immediately upon his arrival here.
Some years ago he resided in Ohio, in the
village in which Garfield taught school, and
then aad there became acquainted with
that worthy. Hu says that Garfield was
regarded as a good teacher, tut by no
means as a man of more learning than the
County Clerk Humm yesterday even
ing received a letter from the secretary of
the soldiers' orphans' home, located at Nor
mal, which conveyed the intelligence that
Alexander county is not represented in
that institution, and stating also, that since
it was the desire of the faculty to equalize
the population of the institution, if the
propT blank were filled out and returned
by any indigent soldier's family in Alex
ander county, it would be favorably con
sidered by the board of trustees of the or

Unite successful in inducing those people
whose privy vaults are in a bail condition,
to abandon them an 1 accept the tubs as
provided by ordinance. Tubs were yester
day delivered to six families in different
parts of tho city and four more families
have signified a willingness to adopt them
to-morrow. This is as it should be. It
shows that our people are waking up to the
necessity of preserving the present good
health of the city and we may say, that
this waking up is timely.
Will Smyth returned from the Cincin
nati convention Friday night, well pleased
with his visit to Cincinnati and his trip
over the Cairo and Vinccnnes railroad.
He expresses his surprise at the
superb management of the Vincennes rail
road, which, although a new institution,
combines all the advantages of a first-clam
road with thoe of a rapid and pleasant
route to the east. It opens a country rich
in exhaustions grain resources, and gives to
Cairo a local enterprise which deserves the
encouragement of all her citizens.

Whether it is an honest conviction, or
whether the declaration was. promoted by
pique at his defeat before the Chicago con
vention, is not known, but General Grant
has declared it as his opinion that Han
cock will be elected. Out of this cxpres
sion of opinion grew the report that ho
would support the Democratic ticket. He
may reach this latter point before Novem
ber, but whether he does or not is of no
consquence, and we feel as did Hon. D. T.
Linegar yesterday when he said: "We
don't need the support or good will of
Grant or any of his clique to us the
enmity of such men is more desirable
than their friendship."
A letter received in this city by one of
Judge Mulkey's relatives,conveys the intel
ligence that he has arrived at Karlsbart,
Russia, to which place he has gone on the
advice of a distinguished German
physician, and he finds that
even his short stay there has greatly im
proved his health. He speaks of the place
as one of great beauty, and says that it is
overrun with travelers in search of health
Shortly after his arrival he met our former
fellow citizen, Mr. Jacob Roth, in the city,
who is abroad on a pleasure trip, and was,
of course, greatly pleased to find a familiar

The state board of health which met at
Springfield on the 25th inst. resolved, in
compliance with the request of the national
board of health, to recommend the appoint
ment of Dr. W. R. Smyth of this city as in
spector at inspection station No. 3, below
Cairo, and that the national board ot health
be requested to place said station in com
mission on the first of July; also that after
said inspection station has been put in com
mission the secretary of the state board of
health be directed to notify the authorities
of all ports in this state not to allow boats
from points below Cairo to land unless they
present a clean certificate of inspection as
for cargo, officers and crew.
Yesterday afternoon at about 4 o'clock.
a sneak thief entered the house of a sick
family on Twenty-seventh street, between
Poplar and Commercial and stole from a
table in one of the rooms, a box of Dr.
Wood's fever pills, containing two doses,
and a pocket book containing a small
amount of money, and left the premises
without being observed. The officers of
the law concluding that a man who would
run the risk ot incurring the displeasure of
the law tor a box of Dr. Wood's excellent
pills and a few pennies had too much
brains for them.and was therefore a danger

A gentleman from this city whojat-
tended the Cincinnati convention, told us
that while in conversation with Senator
West, he (West) told him that as he step
ped on the train at Washington bound for
the convention, Oeneral Logan came up to
him and raising himsell upon tip toe. whis
pered in his ear: "Don't make a mistake
and your nomination." These words, to
gether with the manner in which Logan
spoke them, give ground for the belief
that he was anxious to see a man at the
head of the Democratic ticket sufficiently
strong to beat Garfield. It is reasonable to
suppose that the Republican party has
soured on his stomach, and that he would
like to throw it up and retrace the step
taken in 1303, when he joined it.
Jno. Soet, the man to whom we re
ferred a few days ago as being greatly in
need and deserving of assistance from our
charitable people is Btill unimproved. The
relief which he and his wite so much need,
such at the necessaries of life, clothing und
medical attention, have not been forth
coming as abundantly or promptly as they
should have been. The man is really very
sick and the woman has done all in her
power to supply herself and sick husband
with food, drink and medicine, but without
success. It is true that several good citi
zens interested themselves in
their welfare, and supplied
them with some food and medicine. Dr.
Carter has of late given them medical
attention and Messrs. W. H. Duffey, Ben
Lynch, Geo. Sargeant and Officer Wootmi
lave several times taken them a few articles
of food, tor which they deserve not only
the blessings of the sick man and woman
but the admiration of tho community. The
poor sufferers are yet far from well, and 11
consistency with their past record, demands
that our people should furnish them all they
need in their hour of trial.
For several years a considerable
amount of money has been made in this

This year the trade in new potatoes has not

jt the season on the whole is that we have

just put us at disadvantage
in supplying the north, where
their own yield soon followed our own, cut
ting short our market. Although our crop
has been restricted individually, the whole
yield has been equal to that of the previous
season for the reason that a larger number
of persons near this city planted potatoes
for shipment this year than on any former
one. Tltis makes the disappointment ex

those who have for the first time grown po

If poor human nature could but trust a
little more in the Deviue Hand which is
guiding us all, what a vast amount of fret
ting would be sived. If we could but wait
patiently for the silver which liaes every
cloud.however dark to make its appearance .
It hai been'sai 1 that one fretter can destroy
the peace of a tamily, can disturb the
harmony of a whole neighborhood, can
unsettle the councils of cities, and hinder
the legislation of nations. He who frets is
never the one who mends, w ho heals, w ho
repairs evils, more he discourages, enfeebles
and too often disables those around him(
who, but for the gloom and depression of
his company, would do good work and keep
up brave cheer. The ctTect upon a sensitive
person in the mere neighborluwd of u fretter
is undescribable. It is to the soul what a
cold ray mist is to the body more chilling
than the cold storms of w inter. And when
the fretter is one w ho is beloved, then the
misery ot it becomes, indeed, unsupport
able. Let us school ourselves not to fall in
the habit of fretting, but look for the brigh,
side of every thing. The bright side
is the right side. The times may be hardt
your prospects may not be encouraging,
but it will make things no better to wear
a gloomy aud sad countenance. It is the
sunshine and not the Cloud that gives
beauty to our surroundings. There is al
ways before or around us that which should
cheer aud till the heart with warmth and
gladness. The sky is blue ten times where
it is black once. You have troubles of
course: none are free from them, and per
haps it is well that none should be; they
give sinew aud tone to life, fortitude and
courage to man. That would be a dull sea,
indeed, and the sailor would never acquire
skill, were there never anything to disturb
its mirfac. It is the duty of every one to
extract all the happiness and enjoyment
from within and without him; and above
all he should look on the bright side ot life.
What though things do look a little dark?
There is a bright sido and if you look for
it you will surely find it. The lane will
have a turning and the night will end in
broad day, In the long run the great bal
ance rights itself. What appears ill be
comes well, that which appears wrong,
right. I. A. M.
