MORNING, FEBRUARY 23,
Only two lump posts have bo for been
spoken for on Ohio Levee, where there
nhoulil Lu not less thnn six between St diml
to Fourteenth street. Tliu merchants
alonj,' the street hnve certainly some in
terest in hnvinj; their premises well lighted.
Most of them live ilown in town ami ut
ui'ht ure nway from their storeB with no
one in particular to watch them. It wotiM
be (lesircdblo and certainly incrcn-e
the Rifety of their property to
hnvo street linnps at regular diHtunctn.
Levee street needs to he lighted ns much
if nut more than any other street in
the city, because tirnt, it i.s the most fre
quented ut uiojht by strangers nnd citizens
leav'w orcomingon bouts or trains, whose
condor, ''safety demands nUt. Sec
ondly, it is tho first and only sight ot the
city obtained by passengers on boats lyiny
at our wharves, or passing by, upon whom
Levee street, well lighted, with its many
grand buildings, would make a very favora
ble impression, which all friends of Cairo
must regard with'somo desreo of satisfur,- I
tion. Taking this view of it, all will admit
that it i.s very much to the general interest
of C'aiio and its citizens that the requisite
number of letup posts be erected along the
levee in accordance with the speticatiom in
the ordinance upon this subject and we
hope that, by the first of March, the posts
will be ready for lighting.
A week or ten dys ago the newspa
pers and people of Alton were very much
exercised over a great equable between the
mayor and the council of that city, who
used some very strong language towards
one another, and now the "Alton Democrat"
has stirn d up another hornet's nest in its
attcu.pt to compel the board of school
directors to comply with the law of the
state requiring them to publish their pro
ceedings in one or two of the newspapers
of the county. There are, we believe, but
comparatively few school boards in the
state that comply with the laws ot Illinois
in this respect, the Cairo board not except
ed, and why this is so we cannot under
stand. Why school boards should consider
themselves privileged bodies and persist in
a wilful violutiuti of a plain law; and that,
too, in the face of a popular demand that
they should comply with it, we admit is
something that we cannot comprehend.
Our school board has, so long as we can
recollect, held its sessions in secret and
never attempted to inform the people of
the character of their proceedings, or the
state of public education in this city. That
1 they have been honest and competent and
attentive to their duties is questioned by no
one, and when it is considered that they
receive ne coinpsenation for their services
no one will say that they do not deserve
credit fur their devotion to the public
schools. Hut all these things do not justify
them in a glaring violation of a state law,
which requires them to publish an annual
reports in a newspaper of the city. For the
benefit ( f those who have doubts on this
point we quote the following from the Illi
nois statute nf 1ST1 : Section eighty, chap
ter 12:', page DTU, undet the head of "An
nual Report" says, "the board of education
shall annually picpareand publish in some
newspaper or in pamphlet form a report of
the number of pupils instructed in the year
preceding, the several branches ol
education pursued by them, ot the
number of persons between the years of
twelve and twenty -one unable to read and
write, ami the receipts and expenditures
of cttch school, specifying tho source- of the
receipts and the objects of each expendi
tures." Ci.eaii bead and voice, easy breathing,
sweet breath, perfect smell, taste and hear
ing, no cough, no distress. These are con
ditions brought about in Catarrh by the use
of Sanford's Radical Cunt. Complete

A WOIID FRO If THEBES.
This is court week; wonder if those poor
tellows, who have been "forthwithed" by
the deputy-sheriff nre at all reminded by
this, of the days they went courting their
sweethearts! I guess not, but rather think
that instead of building lovecastles in the
air, they build a great number of dams,
finished up with an n, especially those
whoe lot it was to be excused ; they being
outofjiocket (provided they had it) their
board bill and traveling expenses, besides
the loss of time. It may b3 right for a
state to require the attendance of ius
citizens at court without compensation, but
I don't believe it, us the state is abundant
ly able, I believe it to have no more right
to enforce gratuitous service than a private
citizen, lo require a jioor inati to tramp
twenty-five or thirty miles through mud
half leg deep, simply to tell him that the
lawyers have no use for him, and witlmut
the compensation of even a nickel, is alto
gether too big- n joke on our free institutions.
The news came here in the country that
one hundred and fifty persons were ordered
to be summoned, as out of one hundred
besides the regular panel, only live jurors

Scenery on the Colorado.
The chasm of the Colorado river
scores with tortuous course through the
entire length of the Colorado plateau.
From :1.hm to o.OOO feet below tho
general level of the plain the river
wanders for hundreds of miles. For
sitxy-live miles it runs through Marolo
canyon. The limestone walls, which
are "from 2,mh) to 4,500 feet in altitude,
are often polished to a high degree, and
are of many colors white, gray, pink
and purple, with saffron tints. At one
point there is a plain like a marblo
jiavement. polished and fretted in
strango devices, and embossed in a
thousand fantastic patterns.
An Anecdote of Prentice.
When George I). Prentice was editor
of the New England Review he made
some relloctiou upon the management
of a Sound boat, then commanded by
John Vamlerbilt, a brother of the Com
modore. A writer in the Hartford
Courant says that Vanderbilt was so
offended that he called upon Prentice to
give him a thrashing. Prentice's office
was in the third story of tho building,
directly at the head of the second flight,
of stairs. Vanderbilt made his buisness
known, ami in less time than it takes to
toll it, found himself lying on the side
walk in front of the door, lie soon pot
tip and went to his boat, swearing
vengeance. In his next issue Prentice
gave nn account. of the affair and invit
ed Captain Vamlerbilt to call again
when he saw tit, at the .same time tell
ing Captain Vanderbilt that he (Pren
tice) weighed fourteen stone, used both
hands with equal dexterity, and swung
a pair of lists like tho halyard blocks of
nn East Indian schooner. Vanderbilt,
did not renew the quarrel.
Old Burly Willard was a wheelwright
by trade, and, though nn excellent
workman, was remarkable for his habit
of procrastinating, lie would promiso
ami then break bis engagement over
and oyer again with as little scruple
and as many "positively lasts" as a the
atrical star." Having pledged his word
to a very urgent customer, for the third
time, he would have his cart done by a
certain day, Baity again failed to keep
his engagement, and, on tho arrival of
the owner tho cart was still unfinished.
"Well," says the customer, "you
hnvo got my cart done by this time, of
"Yes," said Baity, "I had done that
work and supjiosed it was quite ready
for you, when I discovered that I had
mailo a mistake a very unaccountable
mistake, -that will put mo back a fort

"what's the trouble ?" .
"Why, you seo" M'd ,?arty with
jrravity, ami an air of extreme vexation,
"you ' ' have made a mistake I nev
er made such a blunder before in my
life I have committed the ridiculous
mistake of making both wheels for the
same side; they aro both off wheels!"
'Is it possible?" said the customer,
who was thoroughly mystified, and
allowed Batty another fortnight to
