Mr. Ben Hagey is in the city on his

W. B. Wilhelm, a young business man of
that city, member of the firm of Winning,

Yesterday afternoon, while the rain
storm was raging tho lightning, with a terrific

it struck, was knocked down and momen
tarily stunned. No other damage was done

Only two caii were tried in Judge

On February 1, 1879, tho Chicago
Tribuno denounced Gen. Arthur, the repub
lican candidate for tho vice presidency, as
the head center of a syndicate of revenue
thieves," and asserted that "every member
of the ring ot crooked importers iu New-
York city desires and is laboring for the
return of Mr. Arthur to the collectorship."
Tho Tribuno is now heartily laboring to
have this disreputable fellow elected vice
president of the United States.
i ne norm 8uio ot commercial avenue
between Eighth and Tenth streets needs the
attention of the city marshal. It is, and
has been for some time, obstructed bv
wagons, buggies, old steamboat wheel
shafts and other old "contraptions" to sue!
an extent mat teamsters, ana all who use
the street, arc seriously uueonvenienced
It is, in fact, almost impossible for tno
teams to pass each other at that point.
Complaint has been made to us and the
marshal should see to it that the just
cause of complaint be removed.
-Yesterday was the last day on which
Health Officer Orr served the city in his
official capacity. As stated yesterday, a
petition, signed by quite a number of citi
zens, which prayed that he be retained,
wa3 considered by the board of health,
which met on the evening of day belore
yesterday. The board decided that the
petition be not granted. Mr. Orr has made
us an excellent officer. He has ever been
alive to the interests of the city, and dis
charged his duties intelligently and impar
tial! v thereby giving general satisfaction.
The News of last night says: "A c. o.
I. dispatch was received this morning by
Messrs. C. M. Howe A Bros., from a Natchez
firm requesting the shipment of "one gross
of Indiana democrats, packed in ice ; if they
can be secured." The above is correct.
Messrs. C. M. Howe & Bro. did receive the
above dispatch, and 6ince their reply may
be of interest to our readers we give it bc-
ow: "Indiana democrats not on the mar
ket. Imported republicans, dark color
and inferior quality, in large supply aud
ofkeiii.no freely, shipment must be at
risk of consignee. Yours truly,
C. M. Howe & Bro."
Cairo undertakers, who are hankering
after some novel plan by which to adver
tise their business, might imitate the exam
ple of a celebrated London devotee of the
calling. This man has been astonishing
the people for the last few weeks by driving
through the city as an advertisement an
immense coffin, mounted on a base and
drawn by five horses. This final recepta
cle is gotten up in the most caudy colors,
ornamented with the name and address of
the purveyor on the outside and lined on
the inside with satin or some rich material.
A live corpse, sitting upright, and orna
mented with a long sheet, lends an air of
variety to the affair.
The News is diligently laboring to
convince the workingraen that if -Hancock
is elected on Tuesday, November 2, the
next day, Wednesday, November 3, every
foundery, workshop, cotton-mill, black
smith's shanty, rolling-mill, etc., will be
promptly closed; the proprietors will be
packing up to move to Canada or New
Guinea; the banks and stores will all be
shut up, and the bank presidents and
lircctoM and cashiers and every
mother's son of a workingnian will be
found rapidly proceeding to the poor-
ouses or leaving for Mexico and Van
Dieinau's land. As a natural consequence,
the churches and school-houses will all be
lired by the adherents of the victorious
Hancock, and Hancock himself, the noted
rebel brigadier, will apply the torch to the
capitol of Washington and all the public
buildings, and complete the job by burning
what Robeson has leftof a navy. Hancock,
the rebel brigadier, and his follower will
then go on u prolonged spree
with the "British gold" which
the republican leaders say has been
pouring into the coffers of the democratic
national committee, and tho "Nation" will
then fizzle out like the fag end of a spent
rocket on a dark night. This is the har
rowing prospect depicted by Mr. Jewell
and the republican organs, including tho
little one home concern in tbiscity.lt seems
perfectly dreadful, but it is strange that
nobody can bo found who is about to shoot
imselfor who gives any evidence of panic
or doubt as to tho stability of things after
The News of yesterday evening repub-
ishes an editorial from the State Journal,
which Btates that a circular is soon to be
circulated among members of Trade Unions
in the interest of Hon. John H. Oberly, and
which concludes with tho threat that "this
may lead to a discussion of his past history,
as an employer of labor and that such a dis
cussion cannot fail to estrango from him
tho support of every member of a Trades
Union." If the News thinks thatit isdoing
its party a serveic hero in republishing
anything derogatory to Mr. Oberly as on
employer, it is woefully mistaken. Mr.

with ever allowing any of his employes to
suffer for the want of good pay. We a
short time ago published statements from
several persons who had been n his em
ploy for a number of years, win-rein they
pronounced former intimations of the above
kind as malicious falsehoods and, besides
our own, we can publish a dozin more to
the same etfect ou short notice. Mr. Oberly
is not and need not be afraid of the thteat-
Thomas Hughes says that Dickens
went through America with his eyes shut,
aud that if Americans had not U'cn the
best people in the world they would not
iave treated him so well. Hughes hasn't
learned yet that the greatest weakness ot
"the bit people in the world" lies in their
habit of playing toady to everv foreigner
who visits the country, even when that for
eigner returns home and abuses the hospi
tality shown him by misrepresenting an 1
minifying in books and pamphlets those by
whose hands it was bestowed. Charles
gave Cairo a most unenviable reputation in
both the old and new world, and The Bul
letin therefore feols unkindly towards hi
lepurted spirit, but is inclined to forgive
it, since Paducah was yet uuborn when he
visited these regions.
-We can not see why the republicans
should feel justly proud ot the victory in
Indiana any more than any individual
should feel justly proud of possessions il
legitimately acquired. That the republican
victory in Indiana was accomplished
through the most glaring frauds is obvious
to every sane and fair-minded man. It is
known, for instance, that uegroes and white
men were imported into that state for weeks
before the election; t;iat nearly every con
cienceless rascal in the state was induced,
by offerings of money and other emolu
ment, to do all iu his power to deleat the
democratic ticket, and that they did so In
going from pole to pole and voting indus
triously until detected and arrested; that
many of these men were arrested ou the day
of election and that whole gangs of negroes
were sent back to their homes, who had left
there and come to Indiana without any
apparent purpose. It is known that over
one hundred negroes were sent on midnight
trains from Springfield, in this state, alone,
and that, too, at the expense of the white
republicans of that city, and that,
on tho whole, republican dollars
and unprincipled alien hirelings of more
unprincipled masters, and not the voice of
the people of Indiana, gave the republican
ticket more votes than the democratic tick
et received. In proof of this, it is only
necessary to refer to one fact, namely: that
in several cities the vote cast was much
greater than the number of legal voters
enrolled upon tho last census lists. This
alone might be considered a sufficient proof
of the most glaring frauds. But let it pass.
Tho honest people of Indiana are in the
majority and will certainly revenge the
wrong in November.
Yesterday was an ugly day a day on
which tho heavens wept copiously and com
municated its sorrow to those ou earth. It
was a day, dark and dismal, uninviting
over head and under foot, dreaded by all
people, good, bad and indifferent. On it
tho wheels of commerce were clogged by
mud tho ladies postponed their shopping
or contemplated visit to neighbors; tho
business men slit at their desks posting their
books, and the professional idlers sat on
beer kegs in the door-way of their favorite
saloons or under the awnings of groceries,
while they hummed their favorite ditties
aud with glaring eyes mid a look of pro
found wisdom contemplated the falling
rain and tho mud In thc-streets. Those
who are baptized to tho devil, were in their
bob's, where the weather did not interrupt
their hilarities. The few fashionable idlers
wo have but tew In Cairo did not pa
rade the streets with simpering belles,
whoso itching ears they delight with com
pliments of flattery, or with choicely culled
i-candal, but only their silk umbrellas bore
them company, which they held in such ft

imuncr as to display the rings on their tin

gentlemen. It is silk, ami all mine, too
nothing like it! Not even tho republicans
asked, "How is Indiana?" and only the
school children on their way to and from
school.ls they jumped over the water which
had collected on the side walks, and waded
over the muddy crossings, enlivened the
streets. Such a day wssycstudy;the day
on which we attempted to fill
this page with readable news.
We racked our brain tor something to
write about, and finally settled on politics,
notwithstanding the injunction of that
great orator ami statesman, Phillip Sheri
