A Philadelphia judge decided last
week that "an assertion of sobriety is one
of the delusionsof.intoxication, and, reason
ing the thing logically, when a man insists
that he is sober, it is pretty good evidence
that he is drunk." We mention this fact
for the benefit of Judge Olmsted, Squire
O.sborii and the court ol acquittals.
We are informed by heveral friends of
Mr. Jack Winter that that gentleman will
certainly be a candidate for mayoral the

It is a source of satisfaction to know that

The weather, for the lost week or so,
has been unprecedented within the last
fifteen or twenty years of Cairo's history
The cold Is extreme and continued, causing
much suffering among the poor classes of
people. The scarcity of fuel ot every des
cription is an additioual calamity, which is
felt very generally and which increases the
evil effect of the weather.
Says the Jonesboro Gazette: "The
blockade ot the railroads, in this section,
with through freight from St. Louis to
Cairo, is alarming, and if it contiuues will
greatly damage to the business interest of
local stations, t'very side-track ou the II
linois Central railroad, from DuQ loin to
Cairo, was tiil'd with freight cars the first
of the week, and there were seven trains at
one time at Anna, last Suud.iv. Vice-Pre
sident Chii k and Mr. Jeffreys, general su
perintcnder.t, were recently in Cairo, and
we trust that they h ive made arrangtinents
to flop the blockade. O.ir business men
cannot receive freight from the cities, and
it is almo.-t impossible to get coal. This
has a damaging effect on budness and will
work great injury if con in't-.-d. All th
ro. iing st.-ck ot the (...no and S:. J. m.s
rat. road seem to oe employ :d in turougn
business although the local freights, wiui
the cxc.'j.tion of coal, are transported.
Pkmimer Martin was brought before
Sqr.ire Osborn yesterday, charged with dis
orderly conduct, tending to d-jbailch the
public morals. The eviu.-nce showed that
on Christmas day he had used ail limner
of foul language to children and ladies
while they were going to and from church,
and that he had, otherwise, acted in a
grossly unbecoming manner. lie was
found guilty of the charge
and fined fifty dollars and costs.
In the cour.e of delivering his decision,
Squire Osborn said iu substance that the
prisoner had figured frequently in all our
police courts for various offences of a more
or less serious character. In his court he
had appeared four times before. Johnson
Fisher, who had aided Martin in escaping
from Mr. Alex II. Irvin, while that gentle
man had him under arrest, was also tried
and, being found guilty, was bound over
in the sum of two hundred dollars to ap
pear at the next term of the circuit court.
We are in ignorance as to the arrange
ments for Mr. Oberly's departure from
Cairo, but, apparently, everything seems
at present to point to a speedy settlement
of the matter between him and his Hloom
ington friends, in a manner that will secure
Tiis valuable services to them. Uncertain
as the result of the pending negotiations
may be, we cannot refrain from expressing
our hear t-felt regrets, which no doubt our
readers feel with us, at the probability
of his departure. It is to be deplor
ed that his pecuniary interests thould
demand his departure from among us
that Cairo and Southern Illlinois can not
resent to him a field sufficiently large for his
abilities, and prospects sufficiently flattering
for his ambition, to hold him here, so that
iie might continue to be for many years to
come what he has been for many years
rrast one of our most valuable citizens.
Almost from the day of his arrival here, at
the beginning of the lute war, to the pres
ent time, Mr. Oh -rly has been a public
character who has always commanded the
highest tsteuin of this entire community.
He has served the people of this portion of
the state in various capacities never fail
ing to give entire satisfaction and gaining
the CO.lf.det.ee of tints-',' who tru-te 1 him
and even the esteem of his enemies. His
v.-.'s.e couti-els were always invoked in mat
ter of public concern and wprmost always
followed, ar, 1 had U, - b riioficri'-r h-cded
than they v,-f re inar:y uro: would never
have been committed by urn who thought
themselves wi.-er than he. Jiat this is not
t;i: time f.r a h-ngtliy t.-idogy. If Mr.
Oberly and his cdimable family no leave
loroth'T parts of the Mate, they may v.-t
assured that they v.ill ever be Kept in
kindly remembrance by the people of
South in Illinois whose whites for their
abundant KiK.ce-.-vi will follow them.
