There were two cases lu the police
court yesterday. Nathan Parker, a color
ed man, for striking a colored woman was
fined five dollars, and Albert Green, an em
ploye ot the brick yard, was arrested by
officer Lallue, and also fined five dollars.
Squire Comings was sole judge as to their
guilt or innocence.
We may be a little tardy in the an
nouncement, but since the fact isono of no
great consequence and since " 'tis better
late than never," we will now state that the
tramp, who died from exposure at the point
several days ago, while the coroner and
superintendent of the poor were absent
from the city, was interred by Mr. J. E.
Park at the county's expense.

The attention cf our readers has daily
been arrested by the attractive advertise
ment of Cairo's enterprising clothier, Mr.
A. M:irx, that appears on this page. Mr.
Marx has, for almost two decades, been in
the clothing business in Cairo r.nd by a
free use of printer's ink and a careful study
of the wants of the public ha3 built himself
up a trade, that is second to none in the
state, outside of Chicago.
Hereafter and commencing with to-
morrow night, each of the democratic clubs
of this city will turn out once- a week until
the day of electiou. The Roosters will par
ade on Mondays; the Third ward club on
Tuesdays; tho Fourth ward club on Thurs
days, and the Fifth ward club on Fridays.
Mr. Mike Mahanny, brother of our
former city jailer, Pat. Mahanny, day be
lore yesterday opened a saloon in the new
brick building on the corner of Fourth
street and Ohio levee.
Mr. Al. Sloo states in explanation of
the apparent wrong in tho non-delivery of
the democratic mail matter, that the bun
dle of letters in which those addressed to
tho persons whose names we published
yesterday were found, had been handed to
Mr. Wright by mistake. 116 intended, In
says, to hand out only the bundles contain
ing those letters whoso owners ho did not
know, and that he was not aware, at the
time, that he had also delivered that par
ticular bundlo to Mr. Wright.
Late last night it was discovered by
thejpolico officers and the tew benighted
wanderers through our streets that the
town had been subjected to another deluge
of the "?320 argument." This time it was
not daubed all over everything, but small
sheets of white paper, about a font square,
having printed upon them in plain, black
letter : "Second Edition, O. A., :i20, J. A.
O." The duluge i more complete than bo
fore, and it is almost impossible to go out
of doors, with one's eyes open, without
seeing half a dozen or more of these bills
at one time.
After the races were over in St. Mary's
park yesterday afternoon, it occurred to
Mr. Chris. Nellis and dipt. Hundileton,
who were present in their buggies, tint
their respective horses were animals of con
siderablu speed. After each had put up
fivo dollars on his horse, they started
around tho track. Mr. Nellis' horse man
aged to come in ahead, and as Mr, Ham
bleton's horse came in, lie ran against Mr,
Nellis' buggy, upsetting it mid throwing
him violently to tho ground, lie was not
injured, but tho hind wheel of his buggy
An impromptu raco between Robot t
Smyth's horso "Harry Hill," and O'llaru
and Lippit's mare, "Julia," canio off at St.
Mary's park yesterday at teruoon. There was
quite a large crowd present. The mare won
in two heats. She trotted tho first in 2 :59
and tho second in 2:55. A remarkable
feature about it was that tho horsu did not
come near his own time on tho same track,
and tho general impression prevails that
the driver throw the race. We were in
formed last night that with another driver,
and at an opportune time, the friends of the
horse will back him in a similar trial in
any amount fiom $100 to $500, and that
the friends of "Julia" are equally as enthu
siastic. The editor of the News in his last
night's issue makes a very lame excuse, In
deed, for not accepting the bet of "Demo
crat," published in these columns a few
days ago, The man is wild. He is frantic.
His conduct is a compound of rage and lu
nacy, and we see the day approaching
when, in the Interest of public peace and
morals, we will be compelled to place him
across our knee, with the seat of his
breeches turned heavenward and adminis
ter unto him such a chastisemeut with our
good right hand as will return him to his
senses. We need not bore our readers by a
repetition of what he says, for we lave al
ready presented the facts in the case, and
in so doing have gone to the bottom wheie
truth keeps her little court. More than
this is unnecessary.
Messrs. Nellis and Damron, who went
out in the country on Thursday last, with
tho intention of telling the sovereigns that
there were none others more fit or worthy
to serve them than they, returned to this
cityyesterday. They spent Friday night
at Dog Tooth Mr. Nellis making his
quarters for the night with Ed McDowell,
a colored man, and Mr. Damron tailing up
quarters with Ike Nilson, alsoa colored man.
They were invited by Mr. Mulcahey, a
weaithy farmer of the precinct, to spend
the night at his residence, but for reasons
best known to themselves they refused.
But what of this? The Bulletin insists
that this is a free country, in which every
man is at liberty to pick his company and
can see no reason why these gentlemen
should not accept the hospitality of a col
ored gentleman in preference to that of a
white man, if they so choose.
Our readers will see from an advertise-
in this issue of The Bulletin that Col.
Dan Rice's Coating opera house and mu
seum will be in this city on Friday and
oturdnv next. The entertainment will
consist of gems from the latest operas, bur
lesques and extravaganzas, scenes from the
newest society dramas, all tho sensation
songs, dances and music of the day. The
whole being intersperse ! with wit, fun and
wholesome mirth. Nothing being allowed
either on or off the stage to offend the sen
sibilities of the most refined and cultured
audience. In this connection a short de
scription of the grand floating opera house
seems appropriate. The steamer is in di
mensions over 200 feet in length, breadth
ot beam 35 feet. Extra staunch
hull. Powerful machinery. And of
ficered by the best steamboat
men money can engage. The auditorium
is 140 feet long, 42 feet wide and 13 feet
li!'h. The staire is 24 feet deep and til feet
in wiiith. The auditorium is furnished
with leather cushioned chairs, giving a seat
ing capacity of 1,000. So arranged as to
leave spacious passage-way thus insuring
comfort. The family circle contains rows
sf upholstered settees, every seat affording
an unobstructed view of the stage; while
the more recherche portion of the audience
will find 10'J elegant orchestral chairs pro
vided for their convenience, the ensemble
iving an air of grace and beauty combined
with simplicity to the body of the house.
When the grand amusement temple is in
position on the river's bank electric lights
suspended from the highest points on the
boat, will make the immediate vicinity
bright as noon-day, thus lighting up the
usually dark levee, and bathing the sur-
roundiii'' objects in a baio of
soft, effulgent light; a scene alone worth
coming to see. The opera house will be
approached by wide commodious gang
planks, covered with cocoa matting, ex
tending far up the bank. When the pub
lic come on board they will be met at the
head of the stairway by polite attendants,
in uniform, who will see that every atten
tion is paid them. The auditorum, stage,
green room, retiring rooms, saloons and
and promenades will be brilliantly lighted
with gas manufactured on board. This
kind of entertainments being something
new, together with Mr. Rice's weli known
reputation as a "show manager," will bring
out a largo crowd to witness each enter
tainment. The prices are seventy-five, fifty
and twenty-five cents.
Some of our republican friends have ex.
hibited a little anger Xbout tfie printing of
the above figures on t he fences, tho side
walks, the window-sl (utters, &c. Th i-ai-ger
is not justifiably, and th iv would not
ho angry it they wo; ;'.J oaly stop and think
what it means. Ifthy would bo calm and
just think about the matter, they would
know the above figures arc intended to
keep before the American people, the fact
that James A. GarfieU had a very disrep
utable transaction with one O tkes Ames.
In consequence of that disreputable trans
action, Oakes Ames was expelled from con
gress, and Garfield was censure 1 by a con
gressional committee of republicans, barely
escaped expulsion, and was fiercely de
nounced by republican newspapers, as a
dishonest man. That is all t-TI9 means. It
is what might be called an object lesson.
We are looking every morning to see a
:!iarco'il sketch of Garfield, crossing the
Tennessee river, at Chattanooga, on the
pontoon bridge, with his horse'3 tail to the
enemy and just as Gea. Palmer described it.
Many of our readers will remember how
General Palmer described it. The rebel
army had been partially victorious at
Chicamauga. The union army bad re
treated into Chattanooga. All around and
above that city the confederate hosts wero
gathered; a hundred of the enemy's can
non pointed at Chatanooga; a disastrous
retreat or a fierce and bloodly battle was
impending, just then Girfield quit the army
and road across the pontoon bridge with
tail of his steed toward the enemy. Give
us a charcoal sketch of Garfield and hi3
steed on the pontoon bridge !
Our republican friends ought to be pleas
ed with seeing these facts of history done
up in a charcoal sketch.
