Although the weather was very cold
last night, the Christmas tree entertain
ment of the Sunday school, of St. Patrick's
church, given at the hall of the Hiber
nian engine house, was quito largely
attended. The merriment and general
good feeling which prevailed was un
bounded. The first order received by telephone
at The Bulletin office yesterday was one
from Mr. N. W. Hacker, requesting that
tho Daily Bulletin be sent to his resi
dence on the corner of Fifth street and
Commercial avenue. The machine at this
office, as at all other places from which we
have heard, works like a charm.
The card of Dr. J. Wilbur, magnetic

pronounced really wonderful. Persons, in

Tho Young People's Temperance as
sociation will give their holiday entertain
ment at the atheneum to-night. The
several excellent entertainments which the
association has given in the Reform hall,
during the past few months, fully warrants
the belief that their ctrorts to-night will
outshine any yet made by amateurs in this
city. Mr. Frank Easkiue V. Rafter, the
St. Louis elocutionist, who recently so ably
entertained a large audience at tho Reform
hall, will take part in the exercises.
About seven weeks ago, a white man,
named Reuben Ashbcrry, employed as a
deck hand of the towboat Oakland, came
to this city on that craft, in a rather pity
able condition. Both of his feet were
frozen to the ankles and besides
this, he sullercd greatly from a
severe cold which ho had contracted.
Ho was admitted to tho hospital here, but
not having unproved in health and his feet
being swollen to three times their natural
size, ho now desires to reach his home and
in order to raise a sufficient amount of
money to enable him to get there tho river
are men making preparations to give a bail
ut Washington hall on January Olh. They
were yesterday selling tickets thereto lor
fitty cents apiece.
Tho State Journal says : "It appears
that Hon. John II. Oberly has more than
" one string to his bow," so fur as newspa
per ventures are concerned. It Is stated
that he has under consideration a proposi
tion to form a combination with Col. Dow
dall, of the Peoria Democrat, with himself
in the editorial chair and Dowdall in the
business office. If this arrangement should
go into ciTcct, tho Bloomington scheme
will, no doubt, be abandoned. In tho in
terest of peace we hope it may, for, with
Dowdall at Peoria, and Oberly at Bloom
ington, editoral compliments would fly
thick Knd fast." Wo have but to say, in
this connection, that if Mr, Oberly docs not
"strike a bonanza," out of all his reputed
offers, it will bo a surpriso to C'uiroites.
It cannot be said that our white popu
lation was all sober of Christmas day, and
that tho effects ot bud whiskey wcro visible
only in the negro vagabonds, male and
female for that would bo misrepresenting
the facts. But thcro is nothing to disprovo
the statement that every act of violence was
perpetrated by negroes ; every loud curse
and foul-mouthed expression fell from
j is nn
negro lips; every fiendish yell came
from a negro throat, and every gross dis
turbance of the peace can be
traced to the fact that cheap
rum aroused tho bud blood in negro
veins. We will not deny that some whites
also gave way to temptation and were occa
sionally seen, singly and in small crowds.
moving in a loose way about tho streets or
lounging around corners, but we did not
hear of a single disturbance of any kind or
of any case of indescent behavior of which
they were guilty. This much must bo said
in favor of the drunken whites.
The telephone is now a permanent es
tablishment in our city, and one which
will soon bo as indispensible In the trans
action of business and social intercourse
as is the tongue itsell. It is certainly a
blessing which none would be without
after having one; become acquainted with
its advantages. It is not vet in
trough working order with
all who have subscribed to
it, but by tho end of another
week all will be in readiness for communi
cation with any portion of the city. About
ninety-five instruments have so far been
put up, being about sixty ruora than the
managers of the system expected to have
use for in this city. About ten subscribers
have, until now, been placed io communi
cation with one another and these are hav
ing a great deal of amusement out of it.
But as the novelty of the thing wears
off its use will bo of
a more serious nature generally, and
it is then that those who can avail them
selves of it will discover its real value and
learn to appreciate it. In conclusion we
will say that we shall feel ourselt under
obligations to anyone who will communi
cate to us any little llem of news--or big
one either that will be likely to interest
tho public. The arrival or departure of
your friends or relatives; the particulars of
social events, such as sociables, club meet
ings, parties etc., etc., will bo thankfully
received by us at any time from seven
o'clock a. m. to twelve o'clock at night. Our
number is fifteen and any call through tho
general office will receive our attention.
Tho Vienna Times says: "The Cairo
Bui.lltin facetiously asserts that H. (!.
Carter, of Mound City, is dead, aud that its
editor is "almost persuaded" to take passage
with him in the good old "Ship of Zion"
fur the promised land. Carter is either
dead, or not dead; but living or dead TliK
Bui.i.KTiN sends out tho funniest obituary
notice of friend Carter we ever read after,
but if the two were only dead drunk,
that explains the mistifieation." That any
journal, wu care not how high it stands,
should have tho presumption to question
tho truthfulness of nny of The Bulletin's
statements, is nn exhibition of such col
lossel cheek as has never before been heard
of in history, cither ancient or modern,
sacred or profane. Twelve hours before
wo announced tho death of Mr. Carter that
gentleman had the good senso of turnirg
his toes to tho daslea in tho most approved
style requesting nt tho samo timo
that only The Bulletin should announce
his departure for tho Now Jerusalem. So
far us tho insinuation in tho last sentence of
tho above is concerned wo need but 8y
that, never having formed tho acquaintance
ot Mr. John Barleycorn or nny of his tela
tives, it was only by tho most desperate
efforts that we prevented tho Reform Club
of this city from elevating us to its presi
dential chair. So far as Mr. Carter is con
cerned wo need but give publicity to tho
fact that with our own hands wo adorned
his vest with a red ribbon shortly before
