At the last regular mooting ot the coun
cil Alderman Paticr offered tho following
resolution, which was adopted : "Resolved,
That tho city engineer report nt tho next
regular meeting of the city council tho cost
of putting a sewer pipe in the centre of
Commercial avenue, from Twentieth street
to First street." QAIderman Paticr is not a
very ardent friend of tho Cairo and Vin
ccness railroad company (for all of which
io may havo good reason) and it will at
oncu appear to tho reader that should his
f 1 .... w
idea of putting down a sewer in the centre
of the avenue be carried out, the railroad
company would be compelled to movo its
track. But while this is so wc will not
say that the sewer should not be put drvn.
Mr. Chas. Thrupp at present has twelve
teams at work, below the Halliday house,
hauling earth for the embankment of the
Illinois Central railroad, which is to extend
ilong what is termed "Levee street" and
stretches from the Ohio to the Mississippi
levee. Tho embankment will at present
only bo raised to about half the heighth of
the levee, but eventually will be raned to
an equal heighth therewith.
A great deal of money is wast ed by
people who think the best way to advertiso
is by dodgers scattered around the street,
and who never advertise in uewspupcis. If
they would consider, a moment, they would
perceive that the newspaper advertisement
is a never-tiring worker iu the interests of
its employer. When the bill distributor
has disappeared from the streets, and tho
bills arc trampled into pulp, tho advertise
ment is performing its silent mission in tho
family circle. It appeals to a coustitueucy
five times larger than the actual sale of the
paper, for there are few newspapers that do
not pass from hand to hand nmona a half-
dozen with every issue. Some of our sub
scribers tell us that their copy of Tun Bul
letin is loaned from houso to house in
tlieir neighborhood, until it is worn out.
We hope the neighbors will be in! uced to
subscribe for the paper.
There is something nevt at Des
Moines, Iowa. They have what they term
necktie balls" in that town. All the
young ladies carry calico neckties matching
the aprons they wear. Then all the tics
aro put into a huge bag aud the ugliest old
maid in the party holds the bai: aud all the
gentlemen cluster around and each draws
a tie from the bag and the lady whose
apron matches his tio becomes his partner
for tho evening. How beautiful ! It's just
too perfectly awful lovely for any use. A
wicked, sordid old batchelor, however, sug
gests that certain impecunious young men
would find such affairs vastly more inter
ensting if striped shirts were substituted for
the ties. Thus, he basely insinuates, would
conviviality be blended with solid gain and
all the Ilawkeye girls would master the
useful art of sewing.
The killing of two negro men in this
city within the last mouth or two will, of
course, give new ground to Cairo s num
erous caluminators for abusing our city as
one in which the pistol and the knife are
never at rest; where bloody murder holds
high carnival aud where the peaceable citi
zen is kept in a state of continual fear for
his own life. The fact that all the parties
to the affairs referred to were river men,
who had no permanent residence anywhere
and who wero here by chance only, will be
entirely ignored by these stubborn slander
ers; for, to consider it, would be to abandon
their prcdjudice and stop their vile tongues
would, in fact, leave them without any
stock in trade.
A few days ago wc stated that a dis
patch had been received by the authorities
from tho parties who agreed to furnish tho
rock for Eighth street, asking whether they
should bring the rock down. Tho reply
sent them was, "bring it at once," and it is
now expected to arrive hero to-day or to
morrow. This bcinir so, and the river now
being nine feet over the chain, we suggest-
very meekly suggest that Cbas. Ncllis bo
reminded oi ins contract Willi too city. Tlio
river is now sufficiently high to admit of
the bringing down of the gravel, but sinco
it is already falling above, the present Btngc
should at oneo bo taken advantage of un-
ess it is desired to leave Eighth street in
its present condition until next summer.
t Mr. Nellis does not intend to furnish tho
gravel, tho authorities should know it by
this time, ami should at once make other
arrangements to procure it.
