breaking his arm near the shoulder, his

Brother's grocery store. By means of
hooks, which caught over the cornico of the
store, they had hung a ladder for a scaffold
and Mr. Alexander had let himself down
and was engaged at one cud of the ladder.
Mr. Grace was in tho act of following him
and had just climbed over tho cornice and
was letting himself down by tho rope,
when the hook above slipped from the
cornice allowing one end of the ladder to
drop. Both men were, ot course, preci
pitated to the ground, a distanco of about
thirty feet. Mr. Alexander received only
a blow in tho head from the iron hook ; but
Mr. Grace had his right leg broken near

J; Bryant, of Cojumbus, son of Dr. J. H.
Bryant ot thU city, camo down from Me
ropolis on tho steamer Qus Fowler, having
a charge a youmr man named Scaggs, who
is a fugitive from juatiee. Ho is wanted in
Columbus for tlw murder of ono Budd
Hays, nn iiiofiuiiBivo young man, who was
well liked in Columbus. Tho two young
men were in attendance at a ball in Colum
bia on last Christmas where they got into a
quarrel, during which Scaggs drew
a revolver and shot Hays, killing
him almost instantly. Tho mur
derer lied and was not heard of
until some days ago, when letter fell into
tho hands of Marshal Bryant by which ho
traced him to a farm somewhere in South
ern Illinois. Ho followed the track; but
his game seemed to havo scented him and
gone. But ho did riot givo up tho chase
and finally caught Scaggs at Metropolis
This makes the third escaped murderer that
tho marshal has scented out and captured.

Last Saturday Officers Kinnear and
Mahanny arrested a negro on Ohio levee for

him in jail, intending to try him for the of

came tho information that tho negro was
W. T. Huirmau, who escaped on Saturday
morning from Essex, Stoddard county, Mo.
where he was under bond awaiting trial for
murder. Coroner J. H. Hambleton, of Stod
dard county and J. A. Collins, Huffman's
bondman, arrived here yesterday and took
the negro to Bloomfield with them after
having left, with our officers, two hundred
dollars, which was the reward offered for
his capture. Huffman was out on bond,
but his bondman becoming dissatisfied the
sheriff of the county attempted to arrest
him. A fight ensued which resulted in the
negro's escape to this city over tho Iron
Yesterday afternoon Mr. A. Marx and
Mr. F. Korstuoyer left by Illinois Central
train on their journey east and then to Eu
rope. Mr. Marx goes primarily for the
purposo of enjoying a few weeks of Eu
rope's balmy air with his wife and then
bringing her back with him. But ho also
anticipates an unusually heavy Bummer
trade in his line of business and therefore
ho will use the opportunity so favorably
presented by purchasing a large Btock of
clothing aud fancy goods. It will be his
especial object to secure a full line of fine
English hosiery and other goods of a for
eign manufacture which it is not common
for dealers in ready mado clothing
to keep. This being tho case his present
stock w ill bo disposed of at reduced prices
in order to make room for the piles of
goods that will soon be on tho way. Per
sons who stand iu need of anything in tile
way of gents' or youth's furnishing goods
can now secure it at greatly reduced prices;
but whether his present stock bo closed out
during his absence or not, a grand opening
may bo confidently looked for when Mr.
Marx returns home.

prove, same as heretofore.
The last official dispatch was sent at
eight o'clock last night and was in sub

There is now hardly any doubt but that
tho president will recover and that tho
country will be spared tho great calamity
of another fatal assassination.

THE GRANDEST CELEBRATION
EVER GIVEN IN THE CITY.
GORGEOUS DECORATIONS POMP
OUS PROCESSION INTERESTING
EXERCISES - BRILLIANT FIRE
WORKS REFRESHMENTS, DANC
ING AND MUSIC.
No one cau charge that Cairo did
not show herself to bo not only as patriotic
but also as enterprising as any city in tho
country, uuless ho wishes to entirely ignore
tho magnificent event just past which com
memorated tho ono hundred and filth an
nual return ot tho republic's birthday. All
who were hero aud participated in the fes
tivities will not hesitate to support
this opinion, but for tho benefit of those
readers of The Bulletin, who wero so
unfortunate us to remain away, a few de
tails will certainly prove of interest.
Tho weather was propitious. Tho sky
was clear; the sun shone brightly, but not
too hot ; a gentle breeze mado sweet music
in tho many shade trees in tlio city and
cooled tho pedestriuu's brow. Tho streets
wero in splendid condition not dusty, yet
Probably the best evidence of the universal
interest felt in tho celebration by the peo
ple of the city, were the flags and other
decorations that might have been seen
along every s'reet, especially along the lino
of march of the grand procession. Nearly
every business house in the city and num
berless residences bore a festive appear
anco wero arrayed in tho most beauteous
combination of colors known to the artist
world red, whito und blue. In various
places flags and bauuers of bright colors
were stretched entirely across the streets.
In the evening numberless Chinese lanterns
were hung on strings around the door ways
and porticos of residences, looking, at a
distance, like a constellation ot bright and
Early iu the morning the extensive and
judicious advertising that the committee on
printing had done, began to show its
fruits in the arrival of strangers from
tho country and the towns and villages
around us. A great many came in on
wagonB, some in buggies all dressed in gay
attire, many of tho ladies carrying flags, or
being decorated with ribbons ot tho na
tional hues. Later in the forenoon the sev
eral railroads running into the city brought
in their tiain loads. Tho Illinois Central
railroad brought down nine . coaches, all
uncomfortably full; tho Cairo & Vinccnnes
railroad had seven coaches filled to over
flowing; the Cairo & St. Louis railroad
brought a strong delegation from all the
towns along its line; the transfer steamer
Morgan was crowded every trip she mado
with passengers that came from Missouri
on tho Iron Mountain railroad; tho steamer
Silverthorn was literally packed with ex
cursionists from Hickman and way
points, and the ferryboat Three
States was taxed to tier fullest
capacity every trip she made. It is per
fectly safe to say that at least ten thou
sand btranoeus wero in the city, drawn
here by tho information, conveyed to them
chiefly by moans of printer's ink, that
Cairo would celebrate the Fourth in a be
fitting and a glorious manner. As a result
of this inpouring of peoplo tho streets and
Bidewalks were crowded, especially was
this the caso at the various and many places
where refreshments were sold, or whero
something of interest was to be seen. Tho
Reform club had decorated the Tenth
street stand and was furnishing good 1cm
onad at five Tcents per gloss and ice water
free ; it had also thrown open tho doors of
its hall on Tenth f treet and spread several
largo tables with eatables, varied and sub
stantial, as well as fancy; u number
of temporary lemonade und cake
stands had been established
in various parts of the city for tho accom
modation of the crowd and tho hotels and
restaurants in the city wero full almost con
tinually. It was about half-past ten o'clock before
the first great feature of the day's festi
vities, tho procession, was ready to move.
Amid tho tolling of tho fivo tiro bolls in tho
city tho members of each firo company and
of tho Mystic Krcw had gathered at their
respective halls and from there, the former
accompanied by their engines and hoso
carts, drawn by horses, gathered in tho
vicinity ot Eighth street. At tho hour named
tho head of tho procession, led by tho grand
marshal, Capt. Thomas W. Shields, began
to move down Washington avenue and up
Sixth street to Ohio levee, and tho several
organizations fell in according to tho order
agreed upon, which was as follows: First,
tho grand marshal ; second, tho mayor and
Alderman Wood, in a buggy; third, the
May Flower band ; fourth, tho Mystic Krew ;
fifth, the Arab firo company, with their
steam and other engines ; Bixth, tho Rough
and Ready firo company; seventh, the
Comiquo band, elegantly uniformed;
eighth, tho Hibernian lire company; niuth,
tho Anchor fire company ; tenth, citizens on
foot and carriages nnd on
horses. Each member of tho several
fire companies and tho Mystic Krew
was also uniformed and wore badges cm
blematio of tho organization to which ho
belonged. Tho engine, hose carts, horses,
etc., wero all decorated with flags and
wrapped with tho national colors, Thus
J) EAR MRS. , I am so g;laltohear from you and that the weather is so
cool and pleasant where you are, for the mercury in the thermometer has
ascended in a balloon and nothing' but a bloomer coHtume is ut all endurable
Yes, dear, goods in our line have been so awful high lately that I have
bought myself very little; hut I was down town the other day, and having a lew
moments upon my hands, I stepped into J. Burger's, and b&w a full line of corsets
like ones too for 35 cents, worth at least 75 cents; large size parasols. 20
cents, cheap at 35 cents; farmer satin ones, 50 cents, worth $1.60, and all silk,
extra size. 75 cents, which I thought were worth $2.00. I don't see how he
can sell goods so cheap. Why, I saw ten and Afteen cent handkerchiefs selling
for five and ten cents, lie has some new styles in pillow shams and tidies with
Frenchnames, Apelacate, (Dossier Brode). How do yon like my French, dear?
Remnants, Julia, of all kinds, which, he says, he must sell at any price to make
room for the large stock, Mr. J. Burger, who is m New York, is buying daily
and to prevent accumulation. He says he don't believe in asking a big price be.
cause he can get it, hut believes in buying goods cheap and selling them like
wise, so as to keep things moving. His business is increasing all the time, jmrc.
1 read some merchants' advertisements about goods going up. By Mr. Burner's
prices I think New York must believe different. Well, yon know some mer
chants never will discover a FALL in prices uutil in RAINS goods. Don't be en
ticed into believing anything they say, but always buy what you want from the
merchant who names the lowest prices for the best goods. 4 -
You ask me how Hike the July styles. They are exuqislte. Mr. Burger
showed me his July Domestic patterns, and I know they are just splendid.
Yours lovingly, ANNA.
the procession marched amid the sweetest
and liveliest music and the'ehucra of thou
sands of admiring spectators through the
streets; passing up Ohio levee, they'cauie
down Twelth street; thence up Washing
ton avenue to Fourteenth street; down that
to Commercial avenue; up that to Twen
tieth ntreet; down that back to Washington
avenue and then to the park. Arrived here
they, together with the crowd that had
proceeded and followed them there, gath
ered around the platform erected on the
dancing floor, under a largo tent, and
listened to a very appropriate and flowery
speech from Hon. I). T. Linegar. At the
conclusion ot this speech the declaration of
independence was read, iu a manner that
challenged the admiration ot all who heard
it, by Miss Mable Deitrich. When these
exercises had been gone through with tho
crowd began to scatter; somo felt interested
mostly in the races (of which we speak
more particularly hereafter) and sought the
track; others visited tho different stands to
quench their thirst with lemonade, soda, or
beer; the hungry found ample and good
food at the cake and sandwich stand;
while those who were fond of
dancing remained on the floor and pro
ceeded to spend -the day in their favorite
Thus tho day was spent by the immense
throng, and it is yet to bo learned that a
single accident or even incident occurred at
the park or elsewhere in the city, that,
having any connection with the celebration,
could mar, even in the slightest degree,
the brilliant success which attended it, and
for this the committees that had the sev
eral parts of the day's festivities in charge
deserve the special good will of this com
munity and of our visitors.
In the evening the greatest attraction for
the time being was the fireworks, which
had been given iu charge of Mr. Dan Hart
man. Certainly, Cairo never 6aw a finer
display of fireworks and it is doubtful if
any of those present have ever seen better
elsewhere in larger cities. . While tho
grand Bhower of sparks and tho many col
ored lights, rockets and balls of fire light
up tho sky, every other amusement ceased
and every eye was turned toward tho sky,
or tho stand, where figures and mottoes of
fanciful forms and in beautiful colors wero
momentarily set off. After this dancing
again commenced and, together with other
amusements, lasted until late in the night.
The races absorbed the greatest interest
of tho greatest number that, in fact, tho
races attracted the greatest number of peo
ple to the city can bo doubted by none.
Tho turf has not yet sunk into tho disre
puto because of tho dishonest practices of
concienceless sports, and therefore the peo
ple have not lost interest in it. It was tho
universally expressed opinion among the
best judges who witnessed the races at tho
park, that ono or two of them were tho
best they ewr saw and certainly tlio second
nnd third races wero intensely interesting,
from tho fact that the contest between two
of tho horses was so close. The
judges wero Capt. W. P. Halliday, Capt.
Andrew Bodkin and Mr. Charles W. Hen
derson. In the first race, which was for tho fire
man's cap, "Mayflower," "Metropolis" and
"Brown Birdio" participated. First heat
was made bv "Mavflowcr" in fifty-one sec
onds; "Metropolis" camo second and
"Brown Birdio" third. Second ho. "May
flower" mado tho milo in fifty seconds and
tho other two came in as before
The second race was for the Halliday
Houso stakoB, in which only homo stock
was to participate. Distanco, one mile;
best two in three. Three cutries were made
for this race, Mr. Will. Lippett's "Jule,"
Mr. Robert Symth's horse and Mr. Patrick
Fitzgerald's horse. The first named camo
out ahead in this, making the first mile in
2:59, and the second in 2:59.1,'. Mr.
Symth's horse was second and Mr. Fitzger
ald's third in each mile.
The third rare was a mile dash. "Me
tropolis," "Brown Birdie" and "Jim White"
took part iu this race and it was the "pret
tiest" race ever run; "Jim White" and
"Metropolis" staying close together nearly
the entire distance; but tho result was that
"Metropolis" came in fisrt, making the mile
in 1 ;49 , "Brown Birdie" came in second
and "Jim White" third.
The fourth and last race was a sulky
trotting race; two miles; best two in three.
In this race "Flaxcy," "Black Cloud" and
"Octoroon" were entered and resulted in
the success of Octoroon. Thus ended the
race, the most interesting and exciting
feature of the day's celebration.
