General Haskell's salvation army form
ed in line in front of its headquarters at
about seven o'clock yesterday evening and,
to the sound of tho usual martial music,
inarched to the Comique, in front of which
the General delivered a prayer and
the army sang several religious soug3.
Mr. Walker, the proprietor, purchased sev
eral books from tho General, and showed
the army every courtesy and compelled tho
crowd, which had congregated, to do the
same. From the Comique the army march
ed to The Bulletin office. While stand
ing in u row in front of this office the
army sang several songs, after which
the General prayed that the blessings of tho
Lord might rest upon it and tho other
newspapers of the city, etc., and then
marched the army down to the Reform
hall the crowd, which had assembled,
following it thither. The hall was well
tilled with people chiefly ladies who, it
was evideut, expected to hear a more logi
cal and high-toned address than that
which tho General delivered. Of all the
talks he has made since his stay in Cairo,
none was poorer or less calculated to in
spire confidence than last night's. He did
nor sufficiently address himself to the un
derstanding of his hearers, but indulged in
many extravigant and amusing stories,
which although told well enough, were
not calculated to set drinking men to think
ing. He spoke for about an hour and a
half and, naturally enough, said some
things that were very good in their way,
and which met the hearty approval of his
hearers. But it would be strange, indeed, if
in that length of time he, or any other mun,
could not say something to the point and
worth saying. We have, in all our com
ments concerning the 'army" and
the General's remarks striven
to do him justice, aud we
now feel that no injustice is done him by
these remarks. That he aud his army
are sincere we have no doubt, aud are in-
cuneu to oeaeve mat tie may uo some
good and will do no harm, and therefore
his objectionable peculiarities should be
overlooked as much as possible and not be
nude a drawback to him.
Dr. Tanner, the famous faster, deliver
ed his first lecture at Booth's theatre, New-
York, the other night. In the course of
his address he argued that the healing
power is in the man and not in the medi
cine, that personal magnetism is better then
drugs, and that he has proved the existence
of the soul. He severely criticised the
various School ot Medicine, and referring
to the ordinary remedies of drugs, said
that they reminded him ot the man who
tried all sorts ot things to get rid of the
rats in his barn. The last remedy was
to burn down the barn. When the people
learn the uselessness of drugs, there will be
fewer seven story palaces built upon cough
drops and anti-dy .-.peptic pills. He said he
was not afraid to step aside from the beaten
paths that the followers of Esculapius have
so long trod, and would not be bound by
the dicta of medical experts of either the
allopathic, houio'palhie or eclectric schools.
Although the medical uses of abstinence
from food had been been his favorite hobby,
he was not exactly willing to die for it. Ho
thought that it he should live for it, his fa
vorite theory would be more apt to be ap
preciated. In another place wc publish a call,
sigued by Win. Perce, the secretary, asking
all Roosters to be at the coop, in uniform,
at six o'clock this evening, tor tho purpose
oi going in a oo(iy to nouges l'arK per

free, and all are expected to be on hand.

Mr. Oberly's speech to the ratifying
Democrats.last Tuesday, although delivered
extemporaneously, was eloquent and full
of irresistable argument. His dissection of
the election laws and his representation of
the manner in which they hail operated
was so powerlul and proved them
to bo so infamous that
no man in the audience could conscientious
ly give his support to them or to tho party
that would uphold them and reap the bene
fits from their scandalous workings, Ho
referred to New Orleans, where, a few days
before tho election of 1870, tho marshals
and supervisors, appointed by Republican
courts, and acting under these election laws,
arrested ten thousand Democrats, among
them a U. S. congressman and other officials,
for no other reason than that they had, four
years before, failed to comply with the re
glutration law. I huso prisoners were all
hold under arrest until after tho election,
when only h few of them were tried am
acquitted, aud all the rest were given their
freedom. Ho referred to the city of New
York, whero Juo. S. I). Davenport
tho chief mover in tho enaction
of theso outrageous laws
instituted a similar system of wholesal
arrests and persecutions by which ho niado
upwards of thirty-five thousand dollars, and
deprived thousands of Democratic citizens
of tho right to vote. Ho then, by way of
showing his Republican bearers that their
party "the party of a froo and honest bal
lot" was itself the intimidator of the voter,
the stulTcr of ballot boxes and tho perpctia
tor of tho grossest election frauds that could
ever bo charged, by rascals familiar with
the business from practico upon tho Dem
ocratic party any whero, by way of
showing his hearers that the accusers were
themselves the criminals he produced the
testimony of tho Republican leaders in Illi
nois charging another with every imagina
political rascality practiced in the
election ot delegates to the several state
conventions. Ho read from speeches de
livered by Republican leaders; from com
mittee reports niado by republican com
mittees; from editorials writtens by repub
lican editors and published by
Republican papers, in tho fier
cest terms the black frauds that had
been perpetrated by Republican election
managers at republican polls. Among in
numerable others, he read from a speech
delivered by Chas Farwell, ju which he,
Farwell, denounced the Grant faction as the
"champion political burglars of the age".
This portion appears not to have been prop
perly understood by some Republicans in
the audience, who have since spread the re
port that Mr Oberly had denounced
the entire Republican party
as political burglars This
is not true. Mr. O. did not make the
charge, but we think he might have done
so without injustice to the party, since the
Republican leaders are really the champion
burglars of the age they having broken
into the ballot box and stolen the presi
dency from the Democracy. And this
disgraceful burglary is to-day condoned by
every Republican voter.
We hear almost daily complaints from
persons who have come to Cairo to live,
that they can find no dwelling house to live
in. They have searched the town over and
find every house that is fit for occupancy,
and some that are not, taken. Some arc
here at work, having left their families up
north, and would like to move them here;
but owing to the scarcity of residences, are
compelled to board while their families re
main away. Others, having come here
with their families, have been compelled to
take refuge in some hotel, private boarding
house, or occupy some broken down old
sllanty. This is quite a drawback to Cairo's
growth, aud should receive the attention of
the building association, (if it is not de
funct; and our men of means generally.
Large, fine residences are not what is
wanted in this emergency. The strangers
who come here to make their homes among
us, are mostly mechanics who depend upou
their honest labor for subsistence, and who
have not the means to build, and who, of
course, caunot aliord to pay
over fifteen or eighteen dollar
rent per month for a comfortable little
cottage, Such cottages, erected upou some
of our numerous vacauts lots, need not
cost over four or five hundred dollars ami
would rent readily and continually; real
izing to the owner from thirty to forty
per cent annually on his investment, With
Cairo's increasing commerce; its growing
lemaud for skilled labor; its constantly
augmenting population; its many men with
idle means; its numerous vacant lots with
material of every description within easy
reach; it is a surprise indeed aud we
might say, a shame, that people are
left to tho alternative of either remaining
away from our city or ot crowding them
selves into uninhabitable barracks.
