Last night the streets were c xceeiiiugly
dark ; the rain fell in torrents and a stiff
north wind blew. It was of ail nights the
most disagreeable that has visited this city
for some time, and as a consequence the at
tendance at the Reform hall was but small.
No meeting was held.

P. Wright, soprano; Miss Hattic McKee,

We may add to the above that no better

The tumor gained currency yesterday
forenoon that Mrs. Keefe, the estimable

was dangerously ill, and shortly afterwards
it was stated that she had died. A num

ears the rumor came, lost no time in re
pairing to her residence and we are pleased
to nnnounce found her very well, indeed.

Capt. Chas. Nellis, the defeated candi
date for slier i if on the republican ticket,
met the local editor ot this paper on the
comer of Eighth street and Commercial
avenue yesterday and assaulted him. He
was arrested by Officer Wims and taken
before Squire Comings, who chargtd him
live dollars and costs for the amusement.
We may say, In this connection, that Squire
Coinings, while on the bench,
to the great pleasure ot Constable Hogan,
Alio was present, took occasion to call us
"a damned liar" language for the ue of
, which lie has lain himself liable to prose
cution, Mr. Nellis informed us that If Ms
name ever again appeared In these columns,
and as often as it appeared, lie would repeat
the assault. In his contract with the city,
he has not proven himself to be a man of
his word. We shall see if he 1ms the cour
age to redeem this reputation ,
A party of young folks, ranging in ago
perhaps from four to ten years, gathered at
tho residenco of Mrs. Wood Rittenhous
yesterday afternoon, in honor of the birth
day of little Robbin Rittenhouse, who was
entering his fourth year. Not less than
fifty little boys und girls were present, who
made tho walls of the elegant residence, on
the corner of Seventh and Walnut streets,
resound with the music of their laughter
and song. Tho festivities lasted till lute,
but the fun did not diminish to the last,
and all present will not doubt long re
member the occasion as one of the Imppient
of their lives.
It is gradually leuking nut that a num
ber of illegal votes were polled by the re
publicans in this city on Tuesday hist. The
last discovery is that u man, who took up
tiis residence in this city about three weeks
before the election, walked to the polls and
attempted to vote, notwithstanding that he
hail been warned not to do so by repub
licans us well as democrats. Of course, his
vote was challenged, but he snore that he
would vote conic what may and lie did
vote. Although he admit'ed that he had
not been in the product long enough to
vote, one of the candidates on the repub
lican county ticket swore the contrary and
thereby secured for the illegal voter the
right to cast Ills ballot.
An enterprise ol some iiiijxiriaiii e to
Cairo is in course of completion iu Ken
tucky. We refer to the county road that
is being built from East Cairo to Hinkle
ville. The road bed is finished, ami will
now be graveled, for which purpose the ma
terial has already been secured. A lew
bridges are to be built, and then the road
will be ready for use. Onr merchants ap
preciate the importance to them of the
enterprise nnd some of thera have contri
buted liberally toward its accomplishment.
When completed the road will certainly
have a favorable influence upon Cairo's
business interests, and will amply repay
our merchants for their efforts to complete
it. Money spent in that way is "like, bread
cast upon the waters," etc.
As was yesterday announced in these
columes, the Ladies Persbyterian noc iety
reset the tables at the Reform hall yester
day noon, for the accommodate u of tlnw
who had been prevented from attending
their supper on the previous evening, be
cause of the inclement weather. Although
the weather did not favor the enterprising
ladies much more yesterday than it had
done the dav before, the attendance was
very good and the assemblage partook free
ly of the many dainties with which the
tables were spread, ami w as merry. . How
much was realized we did not learn, but
have reason to believe that the public
extended a liberal patronage, and assisted
the disintercfctcu workers wlu instituted
the affair, considerably in accomplishing
their purpose, which is to have the
Presbyterian church internally and extern
No one who reads th papers and
keeps posted in regard to the occurrences of
the clay, can fail to be impressed with a
knowledge of the tact that crime of -vrry
description is steadily and mo-t alarmingly
increasing. Not a day passes that we arc
not shocked by the recital of some atroc
ious deed. All good citizens deplore this
state of aflairs, as well as that laxity of
legal execution which H-rmits its existence.
Justice, sleek, fat and indolent, sits cloth-al
in righteous ermine, while red-handed mur
derers take the lives of their fellow-rjen in
broad, open day. This disregard of law by
criminals and looseness in its execution by
officiuls are fuults hot merely local, but na
tional, the remedy of which rests with the
people the law-abiding people of th" land,
and it is they who should awake to a full
realization of the enormity of these evils,
and strive by free discussion nnd prompt
action to bring about a reform.
For cheek und an original plan of
proceedure to get acquainted with u
stranger, a man who was in the ladies'
room in one of our depot the other night,
carries off the palm, lie noticed a young
lady sitting alone in a scat near the door,
and thinking that an admirable chance for
a flirtation presented itself he resolved to
take advantage of it. Walking over to
where sfic sat he cast a languishing look
at her that he confidently thought she could
not resist, but finding it made no apparent
impression on her he walked on a lit
tle further and sat down. Then
hocouifhcd and made other small demon
strations to attract her attention; but he suc
ceeded not at all, and at last he made up
his rniud to try once more and lose or gain
all at one full swoop. Picking up a pin
from the floor he surveyed it philosophi
cally tor an instant, and then an cthcrial
smile rippled over his "manly" counten
ance. Turning round to the young lady, ho
called in tones that ho himself considered
entrancing, "wouldn't you Hko this pin,
Miss?" Instantly assuming a look f dig
nity sufficient to crush a braver man than
he, she said: "Sir!" At that instant her
big brother, whohad been out on the plat
form looking after some baggage, entered
the door, and thinking from the tone of his
sister's voice that she had been grossly
insulted, he made a divo t'er the man with
the piu, matched him by tho coat collar,
C L 0 T e I N
und before he could recover from his
axtonishmi'tit fi id hurled him through tin
open door and plau'e l a vigorous kick in
the vicinity of his coat-Mils. The would-
'masher la'idcd headtor. jnost on the
platform in :t maimer n( at all dignified,
and picking himself up, he brushed the
dirt I'r mi hi clothing Mid sncuked around

A letter received hero yesterday trom
Chicago announce tho fact that the Chinese
gentleman who visited our city recent ly
with a view to establishing a couple of
barber shops, and possibly a laundry, has
perfected his artmgemenu, and four genu
ine Johns will arrive here Tuesday evening
and proceed to put matters in such a shap
as will enable shavers and those desirinif
first class laundry work to put in
their propositions. General Garfield's ideas
regarding thn privilege which is enjoyed
by every free American citizen, to purchase
labor where it can be obtained cheapest,
is thus being put Into tangible shape, and it
will 1m- but a little while, ere those who are
forced to patronize artisU of the rar.or and
washboard, will feel tho great blessings
confered upon them by tbe importation of
real cheap labor.
Shaving reduced to 5 cents per scrape:
house servants to $1.00 per month, and
Ujot blacking to three shines for a nickel,
cannot but offer relict to out suifenug citi
zens. That this inurstion will antagonize a
portion of our citizens, there can be no
reasonable doubt, but it must be impressed
upon their minds that treaties with any
county, unless abrogated must be fulfilled
to the letter, and the heathen Chinee can
not be prohibited from earning an honest
living, even though he reduces his expenses
to a degree which enables him to undersell
his more unfortunate white brother.
Chop-sticks and rice diet will overcome
all obstacles, and unless a reduction is con
templated, boot blacks, barbers, biddies
and chloe must go.

mournfully, "thero is no hope."
