Robert Wilbanks, of Jefferson county,
and Ssmuel Martin, of White county, both
known to many Cairo people, have been
elected to the legislature from tho Forty-
sixth district. They are talented gentle
men, and will make members that the party
may feel proud of.
Had every county in the state made as
heavy gains in proportion to population, as
did Saline, Illinois would have given thirty
thousand democratic majority. In many
of the countieK, where a great deal of brag
ing as to immense gains was indulged in. the
gains were on the wrong side of the slate.
The young folks temperance associa
tion will give an entertainment on the

A general reduction of telegraph rates
recently went into effect. It varies from
20 to ll.'J per cent, to nearly all points to
which the rate charged was more than 25
ceuts for ten words. This is nn important
reduction, and was voluntarily made by
the Western Union company. It will
doubtlo-sgreatly increase their patronage.
Tho editor of the Free Press was
lately presented with a new suit of clothes
by one of las admiren, named Dr. O'Hara,
aud now our country exchanges have setup
a howl each asking that a Dr. O'Hara ol
similar generous disposition locate in their
respective towns. Barton is one of the few
editors who was born with a silver spoon
in his mouth.
Now that the weather is cold and the
om evenings aro here our readers should
not forget that we have in our midst a pub
lic library, which may bo patronized with
profit. No belter collection of books than
compose our library can be found lu
any city in tho state, outside of Chicago,
and our people should taku advantage of
the opportuuily offered them aud patronize
it libi'ially during the coming cold months.
What a vast ditroreuiv; it there between
an emperor and a president as regards
their outward observanco by tho people.
A few tiny ago, when General Gat fluid
and his wife boarded the cars at Mentor to
go to Cleveland, the neat! were all full, and
both tho new president and Mrs. Garfield
would have had to stand had not b benevo
lent old lady given Mrs. G.'a seat. It is re
ported that "a kind-hearted brakciuuii
managed to squeeze out a place for James
also," but this latter statement is open to
serious doubt. Such a manifestation of
disrespect to high dignity In some ot the

The ordinance committee reported n
ordinance to the council last night in re
gard to the granting of tho right of way to
the Cairo .street railway company. By the
ordinance the company nustconiim uco the
construction of their road in the conrao of
sis months, and must have Hie road in full
operation b fore the expiration of a
year or they will forfeit the right of way.
The export grain trade of the country
via the port of New York is constantly
increasing. Many new elevators have
been built to facilitate the rapid loading
of vessels, November ar.d December will
be the largest shipping months of tin1 year,
The grand total for this year will amount of
125,000,000 bushels, being an increase of
more than twenty-fivp ji r cent, over that
of last year.
A letter has been received from the
Cleveland rubber company by City Clerk
Fiiey, which states that the company has
forwarded eleven hundred and fifty feet nt
hose ot the desired quality, Tho hose will
arrive in a few days, and should be subject
ed to the same test to which' the other
was subjected. In all probability it will
prove to be O. K,, but nothing is to be lost
and much may be gained by knowing thut
it is of the quality bargained for.
The year 1873 was remarkable for the
great number of German emigrants who
came to America by tho wy of Bremen,
and no year since then except the present
lias witnessed bo large an emigration .from
Germany to the Ui.iled States. From the
lGtli to the 24th of October of this year as
many in five, steamers left Bremen, bring
ing over 5,000 Germans. According to
European statistics, 74,000 emigrants have
been brought here so fur this year, which
is four times the number brought last year.

The firmness of the potato market in
nearly all parts of the conntry nt this
season of tho year, gives promise of a com
paratively small crop, and correspondingly
firm juices during the entire season. It is
true that many producer J have not yet
brought their crops into market in some
places for the want of hands to dig them,
as is the case with several in this immediate
neighborhood, and in others because of
wet weather; but it is pretty well known
what tho crop is and the opinion is
general that it is comparatively small.
A petition numerously signed by such
of our citizens as arc directly concerned,
was presented to the city council lust night,
in which they set forth that Ohio Levee
and Commercial avenue, below Fourth
street, arc both almost completely obstruct
ed by railroad tracks belonging res
pectively to ,tbe Illinois Central and the
Cairo t Vinccnncs railroad companies, and
that thereby tho hauling of merchandise
to and from the freight depots, etc., is made
very dillicult ami dangerous. They ask
that, for tho benefit of tho merchants, the
railroad strip be laid out into a street sixty
foot wide so as to form an, unobstructed
thoroughfare for dravi aud teams. On mo
tion of Alderman How ley, the petition was
referred to tho street committee.

bavi- appeared before the Cairo audiences
have U en uiuoiig tiie bei,t in the country,
and lmve met with full housi-sand enthtini

too, have been numerous and of a highly
meritorious character. In tact, our people
have, bo far, bad a ncaton of continuous and
elevating etij lyineut. and the prospects arc
that there will be no interruption in this

be fuily up to the established standard.

yet. A gentleman writing from the
center of the slate to a St. Louis p tper says
that "horses which were used moderately,
sheltered against the cold, kept in a warm
but airy stable, fed with healthy fodder,
tree from dust, and not watered with cold
water, which were lurther kept under a
warm blanket and on clean straw, were
mostly attacked in a milder degree, and
tint many of those horses which died, after
being cured, were used too soon or not
rightly attended to."
