Eighth street has been prepared to
receive its bed of rocks and gravel for some

effort in that direction has beeu made.
The river will again fall in about a week,
and unless the material is brought here
before the fall takes place the people who
do business on Eighth street and who are
anxious for the completion of the work,
will have cause to rise in their wrath and
do without a graveled street for some time
as best they can.
Mr. Mike Cahill's little boy was tut
in the loin yesterday morning by a young
negro. The affair took place at the corner
ot Nineteenth street and Commercial ave
nue. The negro was sitting upon the side
walk eating a watermelon, when the ley,
who was standing close behind him, shot
a paper wad which struck him in the neck.
The negro, without turning or looking
around to see who did it, struck around
with the knife he was using and cut the
little fellow m the loin making quite an
ugly gash, which might have proved dan
gerous to the boy's life.
The case of French Axley, for keep
ing a gambling house came up before
Justice Olmsted yesterday. Mr. Axley
swore that he had no connection with the
gambling portion of the business, but it
being proven that he exercised control
over the business and that the furniture
used for gambling purposes was his prop
erty, he was fined twenty-five dollars and
costs. He gave notice of an appeal. The
nine gamblers caught in the house, or at
least some of them, will be tried to-day.

The Comique band, last night, favored
U3 with a serenade playing a few of its
choicest pieces of music in the sweetest
manner. Under the able leadership of
Mr. Al. Goss, the boys have developed into
musicians of no mean order. In fact, the
baud is now one of which Cairo is proud
and as it discoursed one ot its patriotic
airs last night, we were so enthused that
we could hardly resist the temptation of
mounting the bass drum and making the
boys a red hot Hancock and English speech.
Health Officer Orr kept asteady lookout
for the steamer Raven night before last but
she did not make her appearance until day
break yesterday morning. When she came
in sight the officer boarded the Montauk,
and, meetiug her at the junction of the
rivers, boarded her at;d instituted a diligent
search. He found one ill man aboard who
wns utllkted with a disease nothing similar
to yellow fever, anl who upon the boat
landing at our wharf, was taken to the hos
pital. When she touched the wharf she
was also examined by Dr. Gordon, who
pronounced her in tip-top sanitary condi
tion. The first Monday in October the fall
term of tho public schools of Cairo will
commence. The teachers and scholars
have had a long, and we trust, an enjoy
able vacation and will doubtless begin
their duties anew with increased vigor acd
a determined purpose to succeed. The
Bulletin takes special pride in our public
schools. With an excellent superintendent
and competent teachers, we know of no
reason why our citizens should not feel that
their children will be well cared for. An
other thing we want to notice, and that ih,
the various buildings have undergone re
pairs, and every effort has beeu put forward
to make the rooms pleasant.
We write this with the object ot in
forming our readers that there was some
weather yesterday. We arc not iu the
habit of doing this. We seldom speak ot
tho weather, but we feel it our duty to
keep our readers thoroughly informed of
the most trivial and common things as well
as those of the greatest national import.
Hence we say it boldly ' have quit
speaking boldly about anything but the
weather, since Squire Comings sued us for
libel) thnt we. did have some weather yes
terday and it was not of the most agree
able kind, either. We shall expect Coming's
organs (tho News) to deny this statement,
since it denies every statement wo make
but what's the difference?
The procession to-night will undoubt

has expended both time and etl'ort to pre

tho country round about us have been in
formed that their presence hero would bo
desirable. It devolves now upon the
citizens ot Cairo to d what is within their
power to make the demonstration the more
grand. Tho most important duty now i?,
of course, to bo on hand in tho rank, but
we would also urgo upon tho Democratic
residents along tho lino of march the pro
priety of illuminating their respectivo resi
dences so as to contribute as much as pos

Tho J. F. F. C "Just for Fun club"
gave a musicalo at the residenco of Mr,
John Antrim last night. The club was out
in full force, and had prepared an excellent
programme. A number of outside young
people of both sexes were present, all of
whom did their parts toward making the
evening pleasant to ono another. The par
lors of the host were brilliantly illuminated;
the singing was fine; the music charming,
and the audience highly entertained. All
who took part iu tho exercises acquitted
themselves creditably, and tho aflair was
therefore a complete success. The follow

When we read the many wild ac
counts published in the Republican papers,
of the treatment the poor southern negro
receives from the "rebel landlords," and
the bitter vituperations they hurl at the
entire Demo:ratic party because, they say,
these landlords are Democrats, we are
sometimes almtst induced to believe that
these Radical ink siingers may be honest in
what they say, and thnt there is really some
ground'for their crazy howls. But a little re
flection usually dispels all doubt in the mat
ter. We know that the people of the south
are human beings and have the same attri
butes that we have and stand upon the same
level with us morally and intellectually,
and we know that the motives of their
caluminators are selfish, and that they are
all just conscienceless enough to use any
dishonest means to accomplish their pur
pose. They are usually either unreasoning
f wis or unprincipled viliians, whose only
t;ood quality is the bull-dog tenacity with
whicn they cling to the organization whose
leaders have disgraced the country for the
last twenty years. They seem to take
particular delight in dealing in the moss
covered discords of the past, and loose no
opportunity to villify, traduce and damn
the people of th? South.
But what makes these men appear extreme-
iy ridiculous and contemptible is that they
rend their ffnrments nnd dUtnrr tlw.jp in-nn. I

cntcal laces at horrible visions ot their own I
foolish fancy. They will don their gypsy
robes ragged and filthy and, like so
many wizards, place the great cauldron
over the glowing coals and with mysterious
incantations, nonsenseical mumblings, and
faces as long as tree boxes, stir the mixture J
of human blood and bones, seasoued with !
the jealousies of peace and hatreds of strife,
and then call upon the spirit to appear with
all the horrible attributes which the
crazy brain of those wizard editors
can conceive. That the rantin'gs of Repub
lican editors about southern outrages upon
the negro; the wild tales of the deeds of
the "white league," and the visions of ne
gro suffering, that we are daily
compelled to notice iu these
small sheets edited by still smaller men,
are only the creations of their own rattled
brains we are compelled, in view of ex
isting facts, to admit. The colored people
of the south are now in better condition
than they have ever been since they were
delivered from the hands of the carpetbag
gers and savings bank thieves. They own
land, raise cotton, run stores and news
papers, and arc found iu every trade and
profession. We see reports in the papers
published and edited by persons of their
own kind to the effect that all is well with
them and that they are prospering under
Democratic rule and are assisting to up
A DAMNABLE DEED.
At a little past three o'clock this morn
ing a loud report was heard in the direction
of the Mississippi levee on Twelfth street.
Investigation proved that a piece of gas
pipe of about a foot and a half in length,
loaded with powder nnd slugs, had been
thrown through the front window of a build
ing occupied by two colored uien, named
Sam Owen and Martin Gladden, and situated
on Twelfth street, between Walnut and
Cedar. It had been lit by a slow match
and when it exploded, tore a hole in the
floor, shook the house to the foundation
nnd filled the walls nul celling with
deadly slugs. When the inhabitants rush
ed into tho room to ascertain tho cause of
the report they found tho room densely
filled with smoko and burning pieces of
paper scattered about the floor. Tho gas
pipe, whichjhad uot beeu closed at the ends,
was torn to pieces and bout into an almost
unrecognizable shape. It was tbe work

of so me villain who sought not
to destroy the building but sought
the destruction of life. The officers
were immediately notified of the occur-
rence and repaired to the house but coul.l
find no clue to the perpetrator of the deed.
No footsteps were to be seen in front of
the house, but. it was clear :hat the "in
fernal machine" had been thrown through
the front window.
The building is owned by the grocer, Mr.
Thomas Kcane. The colored inhabitants
of it are both quiet and orderly men who
interfere with nobody, and are hard work

and tor whose destruction the "machine"
was doubtless intended, is a laborer. Mr.

Brother Haskell's Salvation Army, yes
terday evening, at about 7 :'d0 o'clock,
marched from their tent, which hud been
pitched back of this office during the day,
and, headed by their martial band, proceed
ed to the Tenth street music stand, of
which they took possession. After singing
several songs Brother Haskell stepped to
tho trout aud delivered a short prayer,
which was attentively listened to by the
audience, which was one of the largest that
ever gathered about the stand aud com
prised a large number of our best people
both ladies and gentlemen. At the conclu
sion of the prayer ho stated that Mayor
Thistlewood had kindly given him permis
sion to occupy tho stand whenever the po
litical organizations of the city did not de
sire io use it. To-night the army would
occupy the largo pavillion which was water
proof and which had a largo seating capac
ity. After Brother Haskell had concluded
his remarks Brother Blackburn
stepped forward and, unassisted,
sang "The Marty'r Deliverance"
iu a mr.nncr that pleased his listeners.
Brother Haskell then mado a speech of
about half an hour's duration which com
manded tho closest attention of the audi
ence. By way of preface ho spoke of the
treatment he had met with since his arrival
here. Col. Taylor, ho said, had kindly
j given him permission to pitch his tent on
i tho ground on which it now stands, free of
1 charge; through the gooduess of heart of
j ytTt ,s. Walters lie had obtained boards tor
s,ats; sawdust, for the inside of the tent
: j been furnished him free of charge; the
myor )mj extended him the freedom of
t;1L. city;our police force bad treated the
, urmy wjtu t(ie f,rtatest respect; maov
courtesies had be n extended by our lead
ing people and for all tht-6e the army was
duly grateful. The remainder of his
speech touched oil temperance and religion
ami in the course of it he drew the usual
pathetic pictures of the drunkard's home.
When he had finished speaking the dox
ology was fitingjby the army and, finally,
the benediction was pronounced by Broth
er Blackburn. The martial band then
struck up a lively tune to which tho army
marched to The Bulletin office with a
military step. They stopped in front of
this office and after singing three or four
songs Brother Haskell led in prayer. He
prayed that the blessings of heaven might
rest upon this great religious journal, and
that the seeds of good it was daily sowing
might produce a-bountiful harvest; that its
religious editor Cwho finds nothing more
easy than telling the truth) might be given
strength from on high to continue in Lis
self-sacrificing work, and that his enemies
might not prevail against him or words to
that effect. He prayed for the "absent
urotuer, mi. liurnetr, who, we may say
has become gray in sin, and who has stead
ily withstood the better influences we have
tried to exert over him. However, with the
assistance of Brother Hoskell. and the
ladies, we entertain some hope, although
slight, of placing his feet on the straight
ami narrow path and steering him into
eternal bliss ere the eleventh hour has passed
Brother McKee, of the Argus, was also re
membered as he deserved to be and, as an
act of courtesy only. Squire Coming's organ
was mentioned. He also very sensibly
prayed for our Mayor, for our council, and
jxilice force and asked a blessing on the en
tire city. The benediction was then pro
nounced and the army marched "home" to
melting airs of martial music, brisk and
grave to which the ladies dainty feet kept
But they hadn't "gono to stay,'"for shortly
afterwards Brother Hakell, cue other gen
tleman, and ail the ladies, came marching
into our sanctum sanctorum and, as they
took possession, many were the fears that
crowded into our mind. We thought of
the horrible fate of Charley Ross and
many similar occurrences, but the smiling
faces of the ladies soon put us nt ease, and
their conversation made them quito agree
able. Brother Haskell presented Jus with
his book which bears the modest title of:
"Brother Haskell's thirty years behind
tho scenes of a theatre, and among the
sawdust and spangles of a circus, and labor
us an evangelist, 6iace he gave up a show
man's lire." He kindly invited us to dine
with bc army; cheerfully gave us such in
formation as might be of value to us, and
then with the ladies, left us as modestly as
he had arrived.
To-night the services will bo conducted
in the tent, which has been pitched in the
benevolent shades of this office. It may be
that a small admission fee will be charged,
but this has not been definitely decided on
by Brother Haskell. Ot courso tho army
must obtain money in some way, It must
either beg it or chargo an admission fee.
But since the popular prcjudico runs in fa
vor of taking up collections, it is possible
that u violation of this rule may causo peo
ple to look upon tho "army" as they do up
on u show, and that thereby its standing in
the estimation of tho peoplo may be effected.
