ted : A. W. Ferrell paid a fine of one dol
lar for drunkenness; Jack Gillman. chuiged
with disorderly conduct was dis
charged for an insufficiency of
evidence to convict; Chas. Coleman, for
disorderly conduct was fined five dollars
and Richard Vivins for drunkenness was
sent to the lockup for four days.
Ou a dark night still within the
memory of man Mr. Jas. Summerwell,
after cautiously steering out of the way of
all tho places where intoxicating drinks are
sold, found himself on Washington avenue,
between Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets.
There is nothing very remarkable about
this fact, but it is somewhat remarkable that
on tho night in question, ami
place mentioned, Mr. Summerwell
should havo permitted himsell to fall from
tho walk and brako ono of his ribs. Br.t
what is more remarkable than all this is
tho fact that ho brought a suit for damages
against tho city for this
his seeming neglect, and em
ployed Hon. 1). T. Linegar, who yesterday
plead his case in the circuit court. The
jury retired for consultation in tho after
noon, but when last heard from
mdnotyet agreed on a verdict. Whilo
the jury was out for consultation tno next
case on tho docket was called which was
that of Harry O'Brien vs. tho City of
Cairo. Mr. O'Brien Btated to the court
that some timo ago while walking along
the sidewalk near tho St. Charles hotel, ho
fell from tho walk and broko his wrist,
and that his fall was due to tho fact that
tho walk was not supplied with a ban
ister. Tho cuso will Lo heard to-day.

We have in Cairo a largo number of
good women who, since the. organization
of the Woman's Christian Temperance
Union, have been untiring in the interest
of temperance. By their earnest nnd c on
tinuous efforts though not us successful
as might have been hoped they have
earned the esteem, even of their opponents
and, shall we not say it the good will of
all unprejudiced people. Their fame, us
women who do not think that they stand
too high to stoop to doing good, nnd
who dare to be themselves, has
spread through Southern Illinois and
will live in the memory of many a family,
who have been benefitted by their influ
ence. But in fighting John Barleycorn,
they have attacked a man of Sampsonian
strength who is as old in sin as he is old in
years; a man who can withstand a cudgel
as readily as a prayer; who respects neither
the law nor its executors. Being indiffer
ent to public opinion lie is popular with an
indifferent class of people who by the way,
while not in the majority, make the noise
for the community ; make the officials lor
the community and make for the commu
nity a reputation abroad that is neither
very edifying nor savory. John Barley
corn is, in short, what tho "boys" common
ly call a "brick," with a bosom and pocket
book which swell solely for its master and
an eye solely to personal gain ; a man who
never sees a good quality in his opponent
and never lails to see a bad one; ho is the
owl, vigilent in darkness and blind in
light, mousing for vermin and never seeing
noble game. He puts all human actions
into two classes openly bad and secretly
bad. Ho holds that no man docs a good
thing except for profit and that all virtue
and generosity are merely tho aim'Kar
atsck of good, but selfish at
tho bottom. Hainan is said to bo pure
and chaste, like the Cynic, he will reply:
"Yes, in the day time." If a woman is
pronounced virtuous ho will reply, "Yes, as
yet." If one, whilo in his presence, should
so far forget himself as to mention religion,
and say Mayor Thistlowood is a religious
man, "Yes, on' Sundays" would bo tho
reply." If we mention that Mr. has
joined tho Baptist church, "Why, of course,"
says he, "tho election is coining on." In
fact John is an independent cuss, who does
pretty much as ho pleases on wock days
and Sundays, and although ho is in great
part indebted to our mayor for tho liberty
ho enjoys, ho abuses that dig
nitary with a relentless tonguo. But wo
desist from further comment for fear that
"John tho Jiunl" may cast his bilious eyo
upon us with displesure, and in conclusion
will but say that wo applaud tho action of
tho ladies aforesaid in their attempt to
shear the hair from tho head of this second
