tropulitan appearance. On the Sunday a'
large number of arrests were made by the j
officers and on thu Monday there seemed to
be still a larger number of petty;
offenders abroad. all of whom'
were taken under arrest, tried,
fined ami sent to jail. Chief among was
the case of Jack Sullivan, who had been
arrested ami jailed on Sunday for disor
derly conduct, and placed in a cell with
several other prisoners. Durln" the ni'dit
he robbed his fellow-prisoners of seven
dollars and a ring. He was tried for lar

bond of one hundred and fifty dollars.
- Everything went off grandly at the
silver wedding of Mr. John Keohler at tue
Rough and Ready hull Monday evening
but yet it is possible to particularize and
point out one or two teaturcs that were
especially worthy of praise. One of these
was the decoration of the hall up stairs.
This was the work of several gentlemen
belonging to tho fire company under the
directum ol Mr. Goorgu Keohler, w ho cx
erted himself to the uttermost to bc tu'ify
the room, and that he succeeded
remarkably well is acknowledged by all
who were present. Tho other feature, was
the table. This was spread under the
especial direction of Mrs. Meluier. she uro
ducing most ot tho fancy dishes und the
largo cakes with her own hands and su
perintending their arrangement on the
table. It was a feast that will not be foroot
ten by those who had the pleasure of Bit-
ting down to it, and Mrs. Mehner has
proven herself to be n cullinary artist of
I !. '
One of the most, desirable improve
ments in tho city one that would add
more to the appearance, reputation and,
perhaps, hoalthfulness of the city would
bo the filling up of all thoso places where
tho ram water now gothers in such quanti
ties and Htands for days without running
off because tho Ohio river is over the
mouths of tho sowers. There aro only three
or four places in tho city where this work
needs to bo douo in order to brita its entire
surfueo above high water mark, and m the
lowest place it would require lo bo raised
only about three feet. This would proba
bly bo of greater importance to the
city right now than the improvement of
streets. But there is no reason why the
latter should tease if the former is com
menced. Let the work be accomplished
gradually. Let the financiers in the coun
cil determine how much of the cash on
hand can bu spared during the year for in
ternal improvements, and let a certain
amount, even though it be not large, say
five thousand dollars, be set aside forfillinz
up the.-e little excavations. Thus in the
the course of a little time, if the work
were persisted in, Cairo would be the dryest
as it is now the healthiest city in the Missis
sippi valley. The subject is not without
importance and a thorough consideration
of it would not belittle the most dignified
member of the city council.
The sny levee above Quincy broke on
the morning of day before yesterday and
permitted the Mississippi river to rush irj
upon about one hundred thousand acres of
some of Illinois' finest farm land.
The damage done by the mad waters of the
Mississippi river and its tributaries this
year is incalculable, and yet, it is only an
every year occurrence, which is looked
upon by members of congress whoso hearts
are locked up in the coffers of tho cas as
a mere matter of courne. But is it not a
(remarkable fact that, with all the bowlings
of Cairo's calumniators, who grasp at every
trifle to keep alive among her sister cities
the impression that her people are constant
iy menaced hy lugli water-is it not
remarkable that Cairo has this year and in
other years, sustained not the slightest in
jury from high water Ins not even been
in danger ol sustaining any injuries:
while in other places, along the entire
length of the great father of waters and
many of its children, the cities have been
inundated and partially and wholly des
troyed? There is something remarkable in
this to those wlm are in the habit of nine
ing faith in the utterances of the aforesaid
ignorant or malicious people: but t
him, who m honest, and who knows
there is nothing strange in this, for ho will
understand aud acknowledge that Cairo's
levees uro absolutely impenetrable by any
amount of water that can possibly bear up
against them, and that they are sufficiently
high to mako it equally impossible for
cither of tho rivers to climb over them
