Kobert Peterson, the negro who at
tempted to burglari.o tho residence ol Mrs.
Webb a few nights since, was brought be
fore Judge Olmsted yesterday for a hear

glury against him, wb the fuct that two
coats, the property of Mr. Chas. Thnipp,
wcro found on his person. Ue was bound
over in the sum of two hundred dollars to
await the action of the circuit court. '
Capt. Townsend brought tho Gilmoro
out from St. Louis Saturday night, and at
this port placed her in charge of Capt.
Tyrarues, who is now on the way to New
Orleans with her. Capt. Townsend returned
to St. ftiuis by rail. His boat, the Dippold,
is now lying at this port and will probably
be the next boat down tho river. Tho mate,
Samuel Shrodes, and the chief engineer,
Jeff Pavy, have their families aboard, who
contemplate making the trip south.
A negro, named O'Neal, on Christ
mas morning, robbed a white stranger of
torty dollars. Ho met the man in the
street and, telling him to pull down his vest,
pulled it diwn for him, at the samo
time reiiveing the pock-ets of their con
tents. Ho was lodged in the county jail
and would have had a hearing yesterday
but for tho fact that the man who was
robbed was too drunk to appear against
Mr. Patrick Dorao, cousin of Mr.
Patrick Clancy, who resided in this city
several years ago, is hero on a visit to his
relatives. While in Cairo, ho was an em
ploye of Messrs. Halliday Bros., at their
warehouse, but believing that he could bet
ter himself by "going west," he went to Bo
nanza, Idaho, where he "struck a bonanza,"
in the shape of a gold mine, of which he is now
the chief proprietor. He left home with the
intention of purchasing new machinery for
his mine and passing near this city dropped
in upon his relatives.
The following cases graced or, more
properly, disgraced the docket of Judge
Olmsted yesterday: John McManus,
Joseph McGuin, Ed Smith, Mike Brown,
John Riley and Jas. Wilson, for drunken
ness, were each fined one dollar and costs
James Smith, Wes Cherry and Plummer
Martin were arraigned on the charge of
disorderly conduct. Tho first named was
found guilty and fiaftj tou dollars and
costs; the second was acquitted tor a want
of evidence, and the third took a change of
venue to the supremo court. For carrying
concealed weapons, Robert Scott
and J. D. O'Harr were each fined twenty
five dollars. A person, charged with
larceny, was also before the court, but the
prosecution not putting in an appearance,
the case was dismissed.
The following is a pari al list of the
gentlemen who will make New Year's calls
next Saturday. We wilv add names to tho
list as fast as they can be obtained. On
Thursday and Friday wo wish to publish a
complete list of names of ladies who will
bo at home on that day. Wo have the
names of a few of tho ladies, and wo hope
we will not bo forgotten by the balance-.
The names should be received at this office
Thursday morning. The gentlemen who
will call are:
C. R. Woodward,
N. B. Thistlewood,
John II. Oberly,
Z. D. Matthuss,
C. W. Henderson,
W. P. Writrht,
E. A. Burnett,

The old custom of making calls on
New Year's day, is one which should not
be allowed to fall into disuse, but should be
cherished as ono of the most t ffectivo modes
of establishing and maintaining good feeling
in a community. It Is a custom that has
in the past, and will in tho future, con
tribute to tho best interests of society,
wherever it is studiously observed, and is
an important factor in tho attain
ment of ono of tho most important
of society's objects. There has been
a lagging in tho observance of tho custom
on the part of tho young men in this city
lor tho last few years, which is to be de
plored, add which leaves no room to doubt
that they havo becomo criminally misan
thropic, or worso still, that they havo al
lowed themselves to fall into a courso of
life that is not approved by the better por
tion of Cairo society, and feeling thus, they
hold themselves aloof from its scrutinizing
Tho young mon of Cairo owe it to
themselves to counteract the impression,
thul made by arousing themselves from
their lethergy and plunging into the social
world with a determination to . be happy
and makes others so, and if they cannot
be pillars in the great social structure,
which reflects so strongly the civilization of
a people, they should contribute their
share to the furtherance ita great
objects. It seems to us that there is more
activity in this direction among our young
men this year than there has been beforo
and wo have good reason to expect that all
our Indies who will keep open house on the
coming New Year's day will not be disap
pointed in the uumber of their callers. We
publish elsewhere the names of a number of
young men who will make calls, and
hopo to increase tho list to twenty times its
length within the next few days. The
ladies who will receive callers will please
follow the example of the young men by
sending us their names immediately by

A Question of Words.
Should we say and write "railroad"
or "railway?" A road, tho dictionary
informs us, is a placo where ono may
ride, an open way, a track for travel.
A way is a generic thing (on tho samo
authority), denoting any line for pas
sage or convenience. A highway was
originally a way raised above tho level
for dryness. A road, says tho diction
ary, is strictly a way for horses and
carriages. In this country, and, an.
pnrcntly, in England, judging by "the
King's highway" tho word "high"
has como to have tho significance of
"open" and "public," and when we
speak of being "on the highway" we
mean on the public and common road.
Hut when we say "in my way" (very
rarely "road" iu such a sense), there
appears to bo a common rccoguitioa
of "way" as tho more generic word.
But in uso without a compounding
word, "way" is rarely applied in the
same sense m "road" thus, wo do not
speak of walking or riding, "along the
way;" we say "right of way," not
"road j" nor is "road" used except in
"railroad," which is tho American
term, as "railway" is tho English. A
few roads wo do not say "ways"
which havo English ownership or .
closo connection, such as Erio and At
lautlc and Great Western, are, offici
ally, railways, and this term is prob.
ably making its "way" slowly. - It
has, however, at least tho comparative
disadvantage that, as yet, wo are not
accustomed to "ways" as short for
railways, or to speak of tho "way
bed ;" on tho other hand "way" has
an ndvaiilngo in not being used to des
ignate instruments of passage by or
dinary vehicles. Somo other English
terms are better than our own; for
example, "sharo" is better than
stock," the latter having several uses.
Tlio English "coach," on rails, was
obtained by transfer of word as well
as article, but it is less cxprcsivo than
our "car." So "stoker," although cor
rect, is rather less idiomatic than
"fireman," which is mado by tho same
process with which children turn the
gray-coaled "carrier'' into "lettori
man." The English "point" is cer
tainly better than our "switch," and
"driver," which iu this country is
short for tho largo wheel when used
in connection with locomotives, is
inoro exact than "engineer," who is
not much more than an engine-driver.
"Metals" would sound strange here as
tho designation of iron rails, ami
'lino" would hardly osoapo detection
as foreign, in use for the "roud" or
"way." There is, however, an Eng.
lish term so expressive, as applied to
capital fixed in railways und manufac
turing enterprises, that it would bo
well to ntituralizo It the word
"plant." Such capital may or mar
not prove fruitful ; yet all the same it
is withdrawu planted. -Veto 1'ork
