He will be tried to day.

was always brought back lry her mother
and kept under strict surveilance. A few
days ago she reached her sixteenth year
and yesterday she concluded to take ad
vantage of her majority and leave hei
mother's home never to return. She got on
board of a steamboat and hid; but her
mother sought and discovered her and
took her off the boat. While this was
being done the girl uttered the curses for
which she was arrested. Esquire Osborn
fined her five dollars and costs and she went
to jail for about ten days.
Several prominent citizens of Free

Cairo has now a number of gigantic
schemes ot improvements under way its
citizens have shown more than ordinary
energy in the inauguration of new and im
portant enterprises and it may be well to
have all these pushed to a successful issue
before others are begun. But that Cairo
ought to have and, perhaps, soon will have
water works is not to be questioned. The
benefits derived from water works are
many ; chief among them being the uni
versal supply of water for household pur
poses, ready water in cases of fire, and wa
ter power that could and would be used in
many instances (The Bulletin ofiice for
one) as a motor instead of steam. Noth
ing would be more generally benficial or
more profitable than water works in
A brilliant uflair was the Carnival of
Authors at Hart man's hall last evening.
It was one of the grandest entertainments
ever given in this city and yet it was no
grander than to-night's or to-morrow night's
will be. The hall was comfortably full of
Cairo's best society people, all full of en
thusiasm and satisfied that they were to bo
royally entertained. And they were, as
any one who was there will testify. The
costumes worn by those who took part in the
tableaux were elegant and appropriate; the
music, vocal and instrumental, was ren
dered by Cairo's favorite musieiaus, the
recitations, etc., were given in a manner as
near perfect as could bn aud everything
else was done up to the highest expectations
of the intelligent audience. We regret that
wo have not space in this issue to particu
larize more minutely, for every featuro
deserves to bo highly complimented.
The programme for this evening appears
elsewhere in this issue of The Bulletin
and is lully as interesting us that ot last
We were called upon yesturday morn
ing by Mr. N. A. Thomas, tho notorious,
who desired to know a few reasons why and
upon what authority ho was made tho sub
ject of several items in The Bulletin. Mr.
Thomas is not a tall man, neither is ho
an ugly man; ho is not a fighting
man, yet ho was an angry man. Like a
number of citizens of Cairo, (all of whom
might bo mentioned by name) ho isgcntlo
manly in appearance and in behavior, but
ho is not a gentleman in fact; gamblors
and prostitutes are hardly to bo classed
among gentlemen, and Mr. Thomas does
not deny that ho is both. His gentlemanly
appearance and bearing make him only tho
nioro dangerous; for these givo him access
to places whero, if he wero a villainous
looking ruffian, he would not daro
to tread. Nevetheless -ho thought
that Tim Bulletin had wronged him,
though he was unable to show in what
particular, lie objected that ho was not a
burden to the community, yet ho will not
assert that men who so abandon themselves
to the vilcbt and meanest of crimes as ho
has done, can in any sense bo considered a
credit to a community; ho objected to be
ing mentioned in connection with "the- se
cret allies of thieves," yet ho must ac
knowedge that it is a debatable question
whcthcrtho wretch who boldly attacks his
fellow man upon the highway and robs
him of his purse, and the other, who enters
a home in the dead of night and takes
therefrom a few silver spoons, or tho ' man
who, without risk and without
any manifestation even of bravery,
lives in ease and comparative splendor by
a system of plunder called gambling it is
a mooted question which of theso men is
the worst thief. We may be wrong, but our
judgment is that the latter is the greatest
scoundrel the meanest thief. Mr.Thomas
seemed to feel specially wronged by being
mentioned in connection with "several per
sons in this city, who occupy
space that would be better filled
by many a penitentiary convict."
He is offended at this, doubtless because ho
believes that "any penitentiary convict"
must be much worse than a gambler and a
prostitute. Yet he will hardly deny that,
between the man who steals a pair of boots
for his naked feet, or a loaf of bread for
his empty stomach and is therefore sent to
the state bastile, and .that other, who, by
"ways that are dark and tricks that are
mean," filches a hundred dollars from some
uususpecting victim and enjoys it
unmolested in pleasure of the most degrad
ing character ho will hardly deny that
between these two men there is a chasm
a vast difference, and, if he is inclined to be
reasonable he will agree with us that the
latter is infinitely the greater criminal.
We have no desire to do Mr. Thomas a
wrong and we know that wo have not done
so. Not out of malice toward him, but as
a conservator of the interests of this com
munity and a respector of the ordinances
of the city, both ol which Mr. Thomas has
outraged, The Bulletin has seen fit to do
what it has done.
FORT JEFFERRSOX, KY.
As this place is so much frequented by
citizens of Cairo and so much heard of in
daily conversation, and as it is soon to be
the scene of a large and happy gathering of
Cairo people, celebrating the advent ot
blooming flowers and verdant trces.we deem
it not inappropriate to reproduce in these
columns an article which appeared many
years ago in a Cairo paper, preserved by Mr.
Win. Lonergan, and which is an account of
a very thrilling incident connected with the
Fort. The article is as follows:
The Fort was erected by George Rogers
Clark, under the direction of Thomas
Jefferson, in tho year 1781. Jefferson was
then governor of Virginia, ami receiving
advice that the Spanish crown would at
tempt to set up a claim to the country east
of the Missippi river, he took this fctcp to
foil the attempt.
Immediately after the erection of the
fort Clark was called away to the frontiers
of Kentucky, but was succeeded by Captain
Immigration to the Fort was encouraged,
Biid several families at once settled in its
vicinity, and for a living proceeded to cul
tivate the soil. For a short time the settle
ment flourished. During 1781, however,
the Chickasaw and Choctaw Indians bo
came exceedingly incensed at the encroach
ments of the whites (their consent for the
erection of the fort not having been ob
tained) and commenced an attack
upon the settlers in the neighborhood.
Tho whole number of warriors belonging
to these tribes at that time was about
twelve hundred, including the celebrated
Scotchman, Calbert, whoso posterity fig
ured as half-breeds. As soon as it was de
cided that an attack wa3 to be made upon
the fort by the Indians, a trusty messenger
was dispatched to the falls of the Ohio,
for further supplies and ammunition.
The settlement and foitwerein great
distress, at the point of starvation, indeed,
and succor could not bo obtained short of
the Falls or tho town ot Kaskaskia.
The Indians approached the settlement,
at first in small parties, and succeeded in
killing a number of the settlers before they
could be moved into thu fort. Half the
people, both in tho forts and its vicinity,
were helpless from sickness,
and tho famine was so distressing that it is
said that pumpkins wero eaten as soon as
tho blossom had fallen from tho vincH. The
Indians continued their murderous visits in
squails, for about two weeks before tho
main army of braves reached the fort. Tho
soldiers aided and received into tho fort all
tho white people that could be moved.
In the skirmishes to which has been al
luded, a white man was taken prisoner by
tho Indians, who, to save his life, exposed
the true Btatc of tho garrison. The infor
mation seemed to add fury to tho passions
of tho savages.
After tho arrival ol the main body of tho
savages under Calbert, tho fort was be
sieged tor three days and nights. During
this timo the Buffering nod misery
of tho garrison was cxtromo
ly great. Tho water had almoBt given
out. Tho river was falling rapidly and tho
water in tho wells receded with tho river.
The supply of provisions was quite exhaust
ed and sickness raged to such on extent in
tho fort that a very largo number could not
bo moved from their beds. Tho wife of
Captain Piggott and several others died

and were buried within the fort, while the
savages were besieging the outside. It
seemed reduced to a certainty at this junct
ure, that unless relief came speedily tho
garrison would fall into tho hands of the
besiegers and be murdered.
Tho white prisoner in the hands of the
Indians now detailed the true condition of
the Fort. He told his captors that more
than half the inmates were sick, that each
man had not more than three rounds ot am
unition and that tire garrison was quite des
titute of water ami provisions. On receiving
this information tho whole Indian army ie
tired about two miles to hold a council. In
a few hours Calbert and three chiefs with
a flag of truce were sent back to the fort.
When the inmates of the fort d iscovered
the flag, they sent out Captain Piggitt, Mr.
Owens and another man to meet the Indian
delegation. The parlay was conducted un
der the range of the guns at the garrison.
Calbert demanded a surrender ot the tort
at discretion urging that the Indians
knew its weak and hopeless condition, and
that an unconditional surrender might save
bloo Ishtd. He said further that he had
sent u force of warriors up the Ohio to in
tercept the succor for which the whites had
sent a messenger. He gave his assurance
that he would do his best to save the lives
of the prisoners, except in the case of a few
whom the Indians had sworn to butcher.
He gave the garrison one hour
in which to form a conclusion
The delegates from the whites promised
that if the Indians would leave the coun
try tho inmates would abandon the fort
with all possible haste. Clabert agreed to
submit this proposition to tho council, and
was at the point of retiring when Mr.
Music, whose family had been cruelly
murdered and another man at the lort,
fired upon him and wounded him pouie
The warriors were engaged a long while
in council, and by a seeming interposition
of providence, the long wished for succor
arrived, during the while, in safety from
the Falls. The Indians sent to intercept
them had struck the river too high up and
thus missed them, The provisions and
men were hurried into the fort, a new spiiit
seemed to possess everyone, and active ex
ertions were at once made to place the fort
in condition for a stout resistance. The
sick and the small children were
placed ' beyond the reach of barm,
and all the women, and children of any
considerable size, were instructed in the art
Shortly after dark the Indians attempted
to steal on the Fort and capture it; but
were most decidedly frustrated. They then
assaulted the garrison and attempted to
storm it. The cannon had been placed in
proper position to rake the walls, so that
when the red skins mounted tiie ramparts,
the cannon swept them oil in heaps. The
Indians, with loud and savage demonstra
tions, kept up a streaming fire from their
rifles upon the garrison, which, however,
did but little execution. In this manner
the battle raged for hours, but at last the
Indians were forced to fly from the deadly
cannon ot the fort, to save themselves from
destruction. Calbert and others rallied
them again, but the same result followed
they were again forced to fly, and all further
efforts to again rally them proved ineffec
tual. Thu whites were in constant fear that tho
fort would be fired by tho Indians. This
indeed was their greatest . fear. Atone
timo a huge savage, painted for tho occa
sion, gained tho top of one ot the block
houses and was applying lire to the roof
when ho was shot dead by a white soldier.
His body tell on the outside of the fort and
was carried off by his comrades.
Tho Indians, satisfied that they could
not capture tho fort, iibandonod tho siege
entirely, and securing their dead and
wounded, left tho country. A largo num
ber ot them had been kilted and wounded
while none of tho whites had been killed
and only a few wounded. The whites wero
rejoiced at this turn in affairs, as tho num
ber ol Indians, and their actual ability to
continue tho siege, were well calculated to
With all convenient speed tho fort was
abandoned. Many of tho soldiers with set
tlers who had taken quarters in it moved to
Kaskiiskia. They proved tho first consul

remained abandoned-is now a shapeless
