The Jonesboro Gazette says: "The
Cairo young gentlemen in search of beaux,
after statins the manv cood 'points" of 1

The Stokes property at Mound City
was yesterday sold to the highest bidders,
who were Messrs. Myers and Hogan. They

Cairo to tho junction. A switch engine is
employed between these stations.
The extension of the Mobile and Ohio
railroad between Cairo and Columbus isnow
well under way and will shortly bo complet

A day or two since Father Masterson took
out his final naturalization papars. Among
the questions which, according to law,

whether the applicant is of good moral
character. Tho question was, of course,
put aud answered, while a broad smile
hovered even upon tho handsome physiogo

Everything touching tho improvement
of tho Mississippi river, necessarily interests
tho people of Cairo und lienco, although
we are alittlo tardy in conveying tho infor

to our readers to bo informed that the
house committee on tho Mississippi levees
has finally aureed by a unanimous voto that
they would agree to amend tho pending
bill, which appropriates $0,000,000, by re
ducing tho amount to $1,000,000.
In this shape they will tirgo tho

All persons in need of fancy groceries
for the holidays should not forget Pettis S.
Bird, who are still to be found on the cor

stock. Among the articles that deserve
special mention are: Fine maple syrup,
California honey, fruit-butter and preserves,
canned meats, jellies, dried fruits, oranges
and a great variety of other articles which

A full line of teas constantly kept on hand.
Orders by telephone will receive prompt at

patch received from Officer Schuckers, of
Cairo, last evening on the arrival of thu
steamer Anderson, Officers Ilanlan and
Beatwright arrested Joe Williams, a col
ored passenger, for having committed a rob
bery nt Cairo. The prisoner was locked up
and Officer Schuckers informed of his arrest,
when lie telegraphed that Williams should
be held until he could reach this place,
which will probably be to-night. The dis
patch stated that Williams had stolen $00,
but gave no particulars. Tho money was
not found upon his person." As stated yes
terday Officer Schuckers boarded tho Gus
Fowler for Paducah day before yesterday,
but upon his arrival there found that the
negro who had been arrested was tho
wrong man and ordered his release.
Mr. J. C.Willis, who was in this city
the other day, is still compelled to walk
about on crutches, owing to the wound re
ceived last summer. No one will say that
Mr. Willis is not an efficient officer, but
