Yi.ili.nl.iy was Chistinas day and in
Cairo it was the negro's day. On il the
lazy Mucks, of both sexes, unuer the in

and ciiiiu', in nil th.:ir (Ilthita-ss, nnd liter

a moment's notice hy everybudy.
Thy pi.'.tol mid razor were everywhere to
be Ho n in hisi hand and the profanity und
obscenity of the female companions, in the
rc.-pectnble business portion of the city,
was enough to digtint Milton's Satsn and
brim,' UtrfiiLubh df shaiuc to the cheek of
Early in tlie morning n negro, named
James Gladdy, knocked the mate of the
steamer Durfcy down with a club, otun
ning him for a moment, but ho soon re
covered and then drew his pistol and shot
the negro through the cult ot his leg, while
attempting to make his escape. Two
negroes quarreled und then fought near
the crner of Fourteenth nnd Walnut
street-, arid OlTicer Wiins coining upon
them, uinlertO'-ik to arrest the- aggressor.
Hut tins individual resisted the officer,
swearing that he would not be arrested.
The Hl'iccr called Mr. Win. Parker, driver
for the Xew York store, to assist him, when
he turned upon Parker, denliughim several
severe blows. Hut he was finally subdued
and wi'h fearful oaths and foulest of lan
guage, and followed by a great crowd .of
whooping, screeching blacks of all sizes,
the criminal finally allowed himself to be
lo-.god i jail. Two negroes a man and
woman had a rumpus in trout of Mr.
Gilberts residence on tiie corner of Sixth
street and Washington avenue. After in
dulging in a torrent ot obscene verbal do
uunications, they changed the programme
to a fight. Officers saw them from afar
and went to urrest them, but, upon their
arrival, both combatents fled
and were not caught. A uutubtT
of bloody fistieuirs occurred in different parts
of the city, the actors iu which were not
arrested. Several occurred in front of Bill
Scott's saloon; one on the' corner of Sixth
street and Commercial avenue; one on the
corner of Eighth street and Commercial
avenue; several on Ohio Levee, and a
number of minor, - disturbances
took .place in the lower portion of
the ciy among the negro dens bf vice
Cartridges were shot by ninny of the negro
ruffians; a bullet shot from a pi.-tol in the
hands of one of them struck an oyster can
on the stand of Win. Winter, Jr., on Eighth
street, and, glancing off, came near striking
a lady customer. A black wench was lying
across the sidewalk on Tophr
street, above the post office, in a
helpless state of drunkenness, unable to
move a muscle, except to send fortli imper
fectly articulated curses to passers-by.
Drunken negroes went up and down the
streets by twos, threes and half dozens; nc
costing everybody; insulting everybody,
seldom respecting even the
ladies; catering every saloon
and store they came to, and sometimes
private residences; making themselves at
home everywhere; demanding presents
from everybody, and cursing those who
dared to refuse their requests. Persons and
ollicer.s, who attempted to interfere with
their high-handed deeds, were attacked
and in somenses shamefully maltreated.
A burly negro, named Plumnicr Martin,
was loudly abusing some ladies on Thir
teenth street, while members ot the German
Luthcrian church were constantly passing
to attend services. lie was profuse iu the
use of words that we do not choose to re
peat. Mr. Irvin happened to come along
and gently tugging Plumnicr by the
sleeve, told him, in his quiet way, to have
some respect for tho passers-by, and to
cease his foul abuse. When the negro
suddenly turned upon him and dealt him
several severe blows in the face,
knocking him down und kicking him.
Coroner Fitzgerald whs quietly walking
toward his home when one drunken negro
shoved him against another, who, pretend
ing to believe that he was purposely run
against, wagged his filthy tongue in a fright
ful manner, and threatened to "put him
full of holes," saying that ho "had the
tools to do it with." It is prohublo that,
had the coroner mid one word in reply, he
would have received tho dose promised.
These arc some of the disgraceful occur
rences of ycslerduy in which tho drunken
lathers and mothers nnd their offspring
figured conspicuously, and that Rome of the
carousals did not terminate fatally is really
a surprise. The characters of those engag
ed in them uro of the worst. They are
men and women, whoso errand in thin
world is to explore every depth of sensual
ity and collect upon themselves the foulness
of every one, Their actual is life tct
damnable enough to satisfy tho ambition
ol thiiriinulerable corruption. They doviio,
iu their iningiiialicn, scenes yet more fa-
grant; swear that they have performed
tliem, ami when they scperate strive to
ntako their lying boastings true. Thev
live among us, hell's embassadors with full
credentials; nor can w conceive that
there should be need of any other
fiend to carry his body among us, slutled
with every pestilent drug of corruption.
Their ambition is to be viler than oth
ers are. They are men uu 1 women to
whom purity and decency is a bur.leu and
only corruption a delight. They are lured
by the scent of c trion. Their co irs ; feel
ings, stimulated by gross exeitaiiM are in
sensible to delicacy-. Thev dive

A CHRISTMAS DIXNEIf.
All who had the pleasure of diiiinir at
the Plunter's House yesterday will not s.kju
forget it ami will agree with uh that it was
beyond a doubt as lino a meal as was ever
spread upon Tlie table of any hotel in tho
country. The Planter's is.in tho first place,
one of the largest and best hotels in
his part of tjio country
and has, under the management of Mr. II.
Thompson, the present proprietor, attained
a popularity, both at home and abroad,
that may we'd be envied by other similar
institutions. Mr. Thompson has been emi
nently successful in his management of the
house, and this h mainly due first to the
fact that he is a courteous gentleman, who
seeks to please all with whom he comes in
contact; secondly, that he is thoroughly ac
quainted with the hotel business
and brings n.u excellent judgment
to bear upon all his undertakings,
giving every minute detail of his business
his personal attention and paying patti
cular attention to the wants of his guests;
and, thirdly, that his tables
are always spread with plenty
of every article, substantial and delicate,
that the markets afford. In order to con
vey to the reader some idea of the magni
tude and quality of yesterday's dinner wc

Ut David Tnownitmon, Waterliurn, N. T.
On a clear ntoht when tho atmos
phere is free from smoke and haze, as wo
sometimes have it in winter, wo havo
presented to tis tho most sublimo spec
tacle that nature has to otter for our
contemplation. Turn the eyes in any
direction above the horizon, nnd wo
see stars innumerable, from thoso of
the first magnitude to others so small
that wc catch only a glimpse of them
by means of a side view, the stars dis
(tppcariug when we turn tho eyes nnd
the attention directly on them.
Those stars which wo distinctly seo
on any night, leaving tlie planets out
of consideration, appear to occupy tho
same relative oositions with respect to
one another luht after night and year
nfter year. Wc see them all appear to
move toward the west each night, and
we noiice after a suitable lapse of time
that they seta little earlier eacli night,
so ih it at tho end of a year they all
coiiio back to tho place of starting.
When we reflect that all theso stars
are as frco to move as the earth or tho
moon, how wonderful it is that they
thus appear to retain their relative
positions so exactly, even for centur
ies. Wo must conclude tint their
real motions arc very slow, or the stars
aro very far from in. Wc are now
"lire (but the ancient astronomer was
not) that in many instances tiio stars
are in rapid motion.
Hut we did not commence to write
about nil tho stars, but only one of
them. Siriu-, or tho Dog-Star; this
star shines during our winter evening
and it may be easily recognized by its
great brilliancy, an I its magnitude
which is greater than that of any other
fixed star. It lias received the name
of JJui'Ufur, from tho constellation,
or collection of stars which it occu
pies. For convenience of recognition
and reference the ancient astronomers
divided tho starry heavens into con
stellations, each 011c having a some
what definite outline which could be
traced by means of the star3. Tlie
name Vauis Jlnjor, or the Greater
Dog, was given to that one which con
tains the star Sirius; and since this is
the principal star in tho constellation,
it is often called the Dog-Star. This
star, has played a somewhat important
part iu the history of mankind. It
was to a certain extent the alinanai ot
the Ancient Egyptians.
Tho present position of Sirius is in
right ascension (J'J deg. 00 min. 30 sec,
and iu south declination 1G deg. 3-'
min. -3 sec. This position is subject
both to an apparent and a real var
iation. Tho apparent variation is duo
to a gyratory motion of the earth,
which causes the poles of tho heavens
(the north pole is now near the north
star) to revolve around the poles of
the ecliptic, or tho vanishing points
of a straight line drawn through tho
centre of the earth, and perpendicular
to the Diane of the sun's apparent or
bit. Tliis revolution is completed in
about '3,U(X years, aud it gives rise to
the precession of tlie equinoxes, tjinco
the star's right ascension is reckoned
from the spring, or vernal equinox,'
the precession causes it to increase at
a slow rate. Tho declination will also
vary from tho same cause.
The real variation of the position of
Sirius is duo to its proper motion, as
it is called. Though tho stars are call
ed fixed stars, yet they really are not,
so, but each one has an independent,
motion of its own, by which it is car
ried through space with greater or
less rapidity. This motion of tho
stars is owing to tho attractive influ
ence which they exert on one another.
The w hole proper motion, however,
is not real, but a part of it is apparent
and due to tho real, or proper motion
of tllo sun, carrying with him tho
planetary system. The proper motiou
of Sirius ia subject to some irregularity,
hut thu matter has been pretty thor
oughly discussed by Dr. Auwers,so
that il is now very well understood.

Don't despise a woman because she

When a woman requests her hus
band to bring homo a dozen or more
needed trilles and he returns without
them, she realizes that in domestic
lite as well as in politics, instructions
do not instruct.
To educate young ladies is to let
them know all about tho ogics, tho
omenies, tho ities, tho tics and tho
miotics; but nothing about tho ings,
such as sewing, darning, washing, bak
ing, and making pudding.
A bri le of a month went to a mar
ried lady of a quarter of a year, and
said: "Mv darling says that women
aro fools.', "Never mind," said tho
other, "ho Is only studying nouns;
wait untill ho reaches adjectives."
"I am an independent voter, ami I
can't support you until I've seen your
platform," she said as ho finished pro
posing. A couplo of hours later it
dawned upon tho young man's mind
Hint she wanted to kuow tho amount

A fair and buxom widow, who had.
buried three husbands, recently went
with a gentleman, who, in his younger
days, had paid her marked intention,

mournful silence, she murmured to her
companion s "Ah, James, you might
