Fred Hart is tho editor of the Virginia

how much influence tho Enterprise has as

A number of our citizens have re
quested the Cairo Amateur Dramatic and
Irish Minstrel Coin puny to repeat tho
entertainment they recently gave at the
athenoum to a crowded house, and the
organization has accepted the invitation
and have set tho evening of Tuesday, tl.o
22d instant, as the tuno for tho repetition.
The general verdict of those who witnessed
tho entertainment before is, that it was
splcndcd, and henco a good crowd will no
doubt greet them the next time.
A young man named L. H. Rivers, an
employe of tho Mississippi Central railroad
in East Cairo, had both his legs badly
mangled by an engine night beforo last.
His foot was caught in a guide rail, which
threw him down with his left leg across the
track, and the engine, passing over
it, nrnrly severed it in twain uud broke his
light leg halow the knee. Dr. Parker
amputated one leg and set the other, and
though tho poor sufferer rested apparently
quite comfortably through tho night, he
died yesterday moruing, about eight
On Tuesday, tho 15th instant, the
second of a series of sociables and dances
will bo given under tho auspices of the
Temperance club, at Reform hall. Those
who attended the first dances, given by the
saniu parties, at the Bamo place,
will not fail to attend this
one; lor that was an occasion of
unusual interest to all. The ladies who
liavo charge of these affairs, have not allow
ed their interest in them to lag, and are
determined to muko this, their second ef
fort, equal in every respect to tho first.
The Woman's Christian Temperance
Union, met at tho Reform hall yesterday
aiicrnoon, according to announcement. A
good crowd wns present; the business was
both important and interesting, and was
participated in by many of the ladies pros
nt. Tho tuqBt important featuro of Itho
business wns the resignation of tho presl
dent, Mrs. P W. Barclny, and tho election
iu her stead, ot Mrs Mrs. Laura J. Rittcn
house. Mrs. Barclay was then elected cor
responding secretary of the union and,
after some other minor matters, wero dis
posed of, tho meeting adjourned.
At tho last meeting ot the city council
a resolution was oflcrod to tho effect that if
persons, residing outsido of tho rango of the
gas mains, and who desire to have their
portion of the city lighted, will placo lamp
posts of tho kind and in tho manner pres
cribed by nn ordinanco recently passed,
they will be lighfed with oil and tended nt
tho expense of tho city. Posts aro easily
made and complete outfits can be obtained
from tho city, or MrGerould's, at a reasona
ble cost. Wo hope that the opportunity
thus offered to have ourentiro city lighted,
will not bo disregarded, but will bo very
generally improved by our citizens.
For some wccks past men havo been
passing over tho Mississippi river, on the
ice; even as late as yesterday four men,
heavily laden with bundles of merchandise,
crossed over on the ico. One of them,
speaking to Mr. McIIalc, said that ho had
tested tho ice in different places with nn
axe and found it from two to three feet
thick. Steamboat men, who havo been
contemplating a trip to St. Louis by water
between now and tho fifteenth instant, will
certainly bo doomed to disappointment if
we have cold weather between now and
that time; a thing which Prof. Vennor does
not npprcliend, however.
The Chicago Tribune, in a very lengthy
article, criticises the Hinds bill, which pro
vides that women shall bo allowed to vote
whtn the question of permitting the salo
of intoxicating liquors in any city or coun
ty, is submitted to the vote of the people
thereof. It takes tho ground
that the bill is contrary to the
constitution of the state, which excludes
women from the polls and concludes by
saying, in substance, that the only way in
which any act of the legislature, looking to
the enfranchisement of woman in this state
could be made valid, is to submit to the
present legal (.voters of the state,
an amendment, striking out the
word "male," in article seven, section first
of the Illinois constitution. The Tribune
is probably right, judged from a strictly
constitutional stand point; but it should
remember that, in all the history of the
world, liberty has never yet taken a single
forward step without breaking asunder and
trampling under foot the bonds that held it
prisoner. Tho women of the
state havo condescended to ask
for what no man has
right to withhold from them, and it seems
that, with a characteristic disregard of all
opposition, they will have their way, if not
by fair, why, then by foul means.
A disastrous fire occurred at about
1 :30 o'clock, on the morning of the second
instant, in Paducah, Ky. The large grocery
house of Messrs. Fisher & Baxter was
completely destroyed, and other property
damaged. The total loss being estimated
at thirty thousand dollars and only partial
)y covered by insurance. The origin of
the fire is not known. At 8:130 o'clock the
clerks locked op, previously taking parti
cular notice that tho fire ic the s'ove was
out and left no lamps burning. Tho fire
was first discovered by an colored man, who
immediately gave the alarm, but it had
already advanced beyond control and
nothing could be saved. Tho house was
frame, situated in tho bus'uess part ol the
city, and was full of goods, which caused
an intense heat and set six or eight other
business houses nfire, nono of which were
much daniaKcd, however. Tho stock of
Messrs. Fisher & Paxton, was valued at
twenty-five thousund dollars and insured in
different companies, for eighteen thousand,
five hundred dollars. The building was the
property of Mr. E. Rehkoff, was valued at
two thousand, five hundred dolltirs, and
insured for one thousand and five hundred.
The other losses were all fully covered by
insurance, The explosion of a keg of
powder in the lire, while it was raging
the fiercest, caused some consternation
among the hundreds of lookerson, but
beyond jaring the plastering oil in some
of tho adjoining buildings, no damage re
sulted from that source.
We aro surprised beyond measure!
Wo are astonished, amazed, dumfounded ;
we arc if you will permit us, gentle read
ers, to cull a figuro of speech from the
vocabulary of our coarser national Bports
FLooKici), by tho awful revelations that
have been mado to us! Barrels of brim
stone aro boiling over! Tho "oneryest,
double-twistedest" conglomeration of
downright cussedncss, is firmenting in our
municipal legislature! Conspiracy,
gory-handed and deep-rooted, against the
wellfaro of the citizens of Cairo stalks
boldly through our streets and darkens the
door of our very council chamber! "What
is tho matter? What is not tho matter?
Villainy is tho matter; baseness is the mat
ter; deception, fraud, treachery nro tho
matter and the naino of tho wlmlo atro
cious mass isHee "woniiui ! But enough,
wo usk tho now perfectly calm reader to
consider tho facts ns we discovered them.
It is well known to every citizen that, in
spilo of their repeated protestations ami
tho utter worthlossness of the very first
piece of cindor sidewalk that was con
structed hero, tho council has persisted in
ordering or permitting tho partial
construction ot long strutchesof this most
detestable of all walks. This fact is known
to everyone, and does not revoal upon its
face, tho symtoms of tho things above
mentioned. But, pillars of Jerusalem ! this
is not all. There is a motive at tho bottom
of this action, on tho part of the council,
and this motivo is tho result of a league;
a league of which the fair sex of Cairo
wero tho instigators, and which exists tor
tho mutual benefit of both parties to it.
But when wo speak of the fuir sex here,
we do not mean that class of tho fair sex,
who uso burnt cork and lilly white, rosy
pink and long curls, all their own, and
whose daily life consists in sleeping, eat
ing, playing tho piano, dressing, tulking,
reading novels and attending theatres, but
that other class, who cat their bread in tho
bitter sweat of their alabaster brows the
scrub and washwomen, both black and
white, ot tho town. Don't laugh. Tho
laugh doesn't como in here. In fact the
matter is too serious to laugh about at
all. It is a fact. Wo havo it from Dr.
Clark; that, by an understanding existing
between our honorable city council, nnd
Juo washerwoman and ecrubbcrwoman
ot the city, the former is to revo
lutionize our system of sidewalks;
to tear up every "foot of plank ",t'1: and
replace it by what-you-may-call-it" wo
puss, and to confiscate the property of
every citizen who objects nnd turn his
body over to the kidnappcars. Tho object
of this arrangement is obvious. It
is to give tho women aforesaid,
and their sons, who are bootblacks,
employment in the shapo of washing tho
clothes and scrubbing the front door steps
and blacking tho boots of those citizens
who happen to be so unfortunato as to have
been bom with a natural disliko of filth,
and who will, therefore, spend their daily
earnings in the employment of the last
mentioned parties to the nefarious contract.
Such is the character of our discoveries, and
such is the perfidy of those, whom the
people ot Cairo have trusted with power
over them. Horn o'Gabrcil! Who would
have thought that within the organism of
woman lay slumbering the power
which could inveigle the under
standings of a whole body of men? But
'tis true, for Dr. (Mark has said it. Does it
not seem as though Mother Shipton (and
her ilk) knew more than she is generally
credited w ith when she pronounced this the
year of tho world's doom?
Soi:nd repose is so essential to good
health that we feel surprised to know any
one would risk loss of rest from a Cough or
Cold, when a bottle of Dr. Bull's Cough
Syrup would trive refreshing slumber.

For tho Cairo Bulletin,
TO KATE W .
I am an earnest admirer of your poems,
and the first thing I do when the Sunday
morning's Bulletin is placed in my
hands, is to hastily scan its familiar pages
to seo if wo aro to bo favored by ono of
your gems, and always tool disappointed if
I fail to find one; but upon reading your
"poetical contribution" in this morning's
issue, I must confess, I was somewhat dis
mayed, to say tho very least. Why! my
dear Ivate, nro you not awaro that wo livo
in too glassy a house t ndmit of our
throwing stones at our neighboring towns,
this is tho reason that the cudgling you
gave the Anna gossips in your contribu
tions this morning, has so milled my com
posure. I am not personally acquainted with
Anna or its inhabitants, but must say that
if it is really worse cursed with gossips
than our own town of Cuiro,
then its inhabitants have my
aoepent commiseration; understand me,
I do not think Cairo is the worst place ot
all lor gossips, but it is bad enough in all
conscience, and so bad that I do not think it
safe for us to point our fingers at other
towns, least they should say, "Look at
home." Thero are many good whole-
souled Christian people here, who would
scorn to say, or d anything to injure a
neighbor, but to my sorrow I am constrain
ed to say that we havo our lull share
gossips, and as many a poor unsuspecting
victim has been mado to realizo, busy
bodies, also. What do you think of a
would-be leader of some society, associa
tion, club, or whatever you may call it,
getting up in public and throwing out
insinuations and making assertions, as in
jurious as they were false, against one of
his or her nearest neighbors, against whom
they could have nothing, except that said
neighbor minded their own business and
refused to bo hand and glove with scandal
mongers. What do you think I say of
a person who would take this
cowardly way to asRail another's
character, naming no names, but throwing
out hints so bioad "that even he who runs
may read." So you think Anna can offord
a worse "snake with vemon'd dart," than
the oneot which we have just spoken. And
do you not think it would be a good time
and place, to establish a "mind your own
business" club, or "don't bear false witness
against your neighbors" club, or something
ot that sort? I merely mention this inci
dent, which was so public that all must
know it, ns one nmong many to provo to
you that Cairo has its "slimy, twisting,
ugly things," as well as Anna, and most
fortunate arc you, if you never have, nor
never will be made to feel their sting. I
have wished often that Kate W , I. A. M.,
or Linwood would take up the pen against
the conscientiousless gossips that infest our
town, or that tho Reform Club would make
war against them. Hut after all, where is
the use, they exist, have ever and always
will exist in every town, hamlet and neigl
borhooif and all that can even be written,
6aid or sung will never exterminate them.
Then Kate don't feel so badly if your con
fidence in "Anna" has been shaken, but con
sider yourself fortunate if your confidence in
our own little city remains intact and that
you may have no rude awakeninc is the
wish of Your admirer
