Tho social party given at tho residence

On the first of January an order went
into effect prohibiting tho uso of cards oth
er than the regular postal card for postal
uses. As many merchants liavo been in
tho habit ot advertising by such mcuus,
tho order should bo given wide publicity,
to save unnecessary loss. Frico lists aud

envelopes in order to pass through the

Six young men printers by trade
called upon us yesterday in a friendly way.
They were from Lungsport, Ind., where
they had been engaged in publishing
patent newspaper sheets, and were on
their way to Memphis, where they will
reopen their business. Being all practical
printers they will do their own work, such
as setting type, editing and printing, mid
therefore, will doubtless meet with success.
Four years Bgo Mr. Hayes said his
heart bled for the poor colored man of the
south. As Garfield has not said anything
like that since bis election a delegation of
southern negroes called on him tho other
day to see whether his heart was bleeding
or not. They found him expectorating
claret and were overcome by his powerful
sympathy until they had learned ho had
just been to a dentist and had a tooth
Tho troupe, now playing in tho Athc-

was enthusiastically received, as rendered
by the company. This afternoon tho Gal
ley Slave will bo repeated at the matinee
and to-night tho whole strength of the com
pany will be brought out m Matrimony, or
high life at Long Branch.
An event of somo noto occurcd in
Mound City day before yesterday. It was
the wedding of Miss Dora Fair and Mr.
Win. Biggerstaflf, both of Mound City's
best and most respected young people.
Thu wedding took place at tho bride's resi
dence, the ceremony being performed by
Rev. Elias Glassgow. In the evening a re
ception was given to the friends of the
happy couple, which was largely attended
and generally enjoyed. The congratula
tions tended the young husband and wife
were numerous and hearty.
Tho temperance people met in their
hall on Tenth street, last night, in very re
spectable numbers, and the exercises were
of more than ordinary interest. A Mr.
Brown, recently from Carbondale, enter
tained the audience with some very pointed
remarks of local application-his chief
theme being, "what ought to be done."
Miss Jennie Wilson followed Mr. Brown
with a few remarks concerning w hat had
so far been done by the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union and what probably
would be done in the near future. She was
listened to with manifest interest by all pres
ent. The exercises closed with songs, etc.,
It should be borne in mind by our
people that tho principle attraction in the
city, next Monday evening, will be the en
tertainment, given at the Athencum by tho
Cairo Amateur Dramatic and Irish Minis
trel company. Some of the best talent in
the city will take part in the performance,
which is a sullicient guarantee that it will
bo worth anybody's time and money to seeit.
Among tho more attractive features of the
performance will be the great drama of
the "Fenian Rising in Ireland in 1807."
The proceeds of tho entertainment will bo
devoted to tho completion of tho Loretto
Academy, and hence our citizens should,
and doubtless will, turn out in full force.
Day before yesterday while tho steamer
W. P. Halliday was loading for the south,
a number of negroes attempted to per
suade the rousters who were loading the
boat to quit or ask for an increase of wages.
The mute of tho bout, not approving ot this
proceeding, shoved one of tho fel
lows aside, who was standing
in tho way aud had become quite demon
strative and, it is alleged, struck him.
This urousel the ire of the entire gang,
who resolved upon his arrest, and accord
ingly Bworo out a warrant against him.
Ho yesterday appeared beforo Judge
Olmsted and, upon pleading guilty, was
fined fivo dollars and costs total eleven
dollars and sixty cents.
Tho Paducah Enterprise has the fol
lowing to Bay concerning the California
Crayon Comedy Company: "The four C's,
known as tho California Crayon Comedy
Company, which gave three tenth-rate en
tertainments in this city boiuo time back,
went up the flue shortly after leaving here.
Doyle, the manager, whom report said
furnished $12,000 worth of diamonds for
his people, jumped tho company and short
ly afterwards opened a mermaid show in
St. Louis, whero he exhibited a so-called
mermaid for a small admission price. Like
his comedy company, it was a sell of tho
first water. His numerous creditors attach
ed the concern and it is a 'busted' institu
tion. Doylo is a fraud of tho first water."
Tho two great causes of spring floods
namely, thick icu and deep snow have
never appeared with so threatening aspects
as they do now. Throughout all tho im
niensu territory drained by tho Mississippi
river, and those of its tributaries which euter
tho great river above Cairo, there are vast
deposits of snow and ico of phenomenal
thickness in tho rivers and lakes. The
event of having Hoods which will provo un
usually disastrous to tho planting interest
of tho great valley, from the mouth of tho
Ohio to tho gulf, is only a question of
weather. If day succeeds day with sunny
warmth and consequent slow disintegra
tion of tho great drifts, all will bo well.
But if thu rains descend, tho snows melt
suddenly, and tho northwestern streams
break up in a flood, there is certainty of
one of tho worst overflows which has de
vastated tho lower country for years. Plan
ters ami stock-owners below Cairo cannot too
closely watch tho variations of tho tempera
ture in tho northwest, as recorded by tho
signal service, for upon this may depend
theirsaftey lrom irretrievable disaster. With
our present substantial levees thero is, of
course, no question concerning Cairo's
An old negro, whoso head was white
with ago, was yesterday brought into tho
office of Squiro Osborn by an officer. Ho
had been caught picking up coal in the
Illinois Central yards and the company
having determined to punish all such of
fenders, accounted for bis presence in
the court room. Ho protested, with tears
in his eyes, that it had not been
his intention to steal and that ho was
ignorant of having done wrong and then,
tailing upon his knec3 before the Squire,
ho prayed and called upon God in tho
most pathetic manner that ho might be
spared from prosecution. Tho Squire at
tempted to make him rise to his feet and
compose himself while a note was sent to
Mr. DePuo in regard to tho mat
ter, but no sooner would ho rise
than ho' would again sink
upon his knees. Ho remained in
this position for fully an hour, praying
loudly and crying bitterly until a note was
received from Mr. DePuo to tho effect
that in t his particular instance he would
not prosecute the offender.
Jefferson Davis' forthcoming book,
which is likely to create a profound nn
pression in the literary world, Mr. Derby,
of the Appleton publishing firm, says: "It
will be called "The Riso and Fall of the
Confederate GoAernment." It will be is
sued in two volumes, about the size of Ap
pleton's Encyclopedia, and will be sold for
five dollars a volume. I spent several days
with Mr. Davis at Bcauvoir last January,
when his labors was mainly over. I never
saw a man that so sincerely rejoices in his
work. He said he hud made a history that
would stand all the tests of time and criti
cism, because it was true, and that he had
put in permanent record a defense of his
people that would command the verdict of
posterity. He gave five years of almost
uuceasing labor to the work. The first vol
ume is almost entirely taken up with a
constitutional discussion of the causes that,
led to the war. The latter half of this and
the last volume treats of the conduct of tho
war. The introduction affirms briefly the
confederate character of tho union and tho
necessity of separate sovereignties under
Mr. Gladden, the colored immigration
agent, who was stationed in this city before
the election and whose heart bled so freely
for the poor and oppressed colored people
of the south, now, that the election is past,
has at once discovered that tho negroes in
that region have ceased to suflcr; that they
are no longer abused nor mistreated, and
that they can do as well in the south as
in Illinois. Accordingly ho has packed his
trunk and left for Springfield, where bis
contemptible services which consisted in
lying, and luring men of his color from
their homes in the south to vote the repub
lican ticket in Illinois have been duly
rcwaided by an appreciative republican as
sembly. He has been given the place of
janitorofthehou.se of representatives aud
will doubtless hold the same until another
election approaches, when it will suddenly
again dawn upon his mind that the colored
men of the south receive no pay for their
labor, that they are not permitted to build
school houses or churches, and are un
hesitatingly lynched if they dare tovoto tho
republican ticket or complain of tho treat
ment they receive. All this, and much
more, will then but not until then enter
his head and touch his heart and cause him
to again repair to this city and resume bis
labor of love which be has dropped like a
hot cake since tho election. Verily, verily,
the ways of republicans aro dark and be
Tho Methodist Year Book for 1881,
just issued from tho publishing house o(

will be read with interest by the Cairoitcs
oi that denomination, as well as by others.
From it we learn that thero aro now in

propriates for missions $778,000 for 1881,
about half of which will be expended at

The various Methodisms have 30,000
itinerant preachers in the fluid, aud 83,000
local preachers, men who preach on Sun

week days. Methodism' has numerous
denominational academics aud seminaries,
and no lack of colleges, among which aro
the new Boston University, the Wesleyan
University at Middletown, Conn., and tho

An accident occurred on the Illinois
Central railroad, this side of Mukanda, yes
terday morning, at about two o'clock,
which was more destructive to life and
property than any that has lately occurred
on the road. Four freight trains left here for
the north, night before la-t each but a
few miles behind the oilier. At about ono
o'clock, while the foremost train was pass
ing over the threstle, this side of Makanda,
and when the engine and several
cars had gained the other side of
the trestle, it broke down, precipitating a
number of cars and converting them into
aninrecogni.able wreck. Fortunately no
ono was injured on this train und tje train
back of it was immediately flagged and
safely stopped before it reached the wreck,
as wus also the third train, but the fourth
and last train was lie one which caused
the havoc. O .vinij to a curve in the road
at that point the engineer was unablo
to see the signal unlil he was quite close
upon the train before him and then, with
his best etforts, the disaster could not be
averted, but he remained at his post, as did
also his fireman. The engineer on the third
train being unable to get out of
the way on account of the wreck
and train ahead of him, guve
his engine sand and revered her in order
to prevent her from being shoved into the
train ahead of him. This was effectual,
but his entire train, except the tight cars
nearest the engine, were, demolished, as
was also the entire fourth tram, with tho
exception of a few cars. The engin
eer on this train, named Morgan, sustained
injuries which will probably cause bis
death and tho fireman, named Sanders,
whose home is in Cent nil ia, was kille'l and
probably two brakenn'n, ono of whom,
however, lias only been found. Mr.
Sanders, tho fireman, was for
sometime n resident of this city, but for
several years has been farming near Cen
tral ia. He was for many years past n
trusted engineer of thu load and was a
few days ago again pressed into service
because of the scarcity of firemen on the
road. Ho leaves a wife aud live children.
