The Vicksburg house, kept by Mr. Mc
Carthy, caught fire yesterday evening, about
half past five o'clock, and was greatly dsm
aged. The alarm was given immediately
and all the fire companies were promptly on
hand, but, when they arrived on the scene,
the fire had permeated nearly every part of
the house and smoke was issuing from near
ly every crevice. Work was immediately
commenced and the heavy streams of water
thrown atiainst thy sides of the house
burst in the weather boarding in place
disclosing the seat of the fire and enabling
the water to do its work well. In about an
hour the fire was entirely out, but th
house and furniturtt was in a deplorable
condition. The former was chopped, torn
burnt and watered and the latter whs scat
tcred about the streets in great confusion
The building was tbu property ot Mrs
McCarthy, who had, for a number of years,
done a profitable business in it, in the way
of a ..boarding house. It was insured

DoMtoLA, July 14, 18I1.
Among the ten thousand visitors to
Cairo, on the 4th instant, were "Old Trim"
and Mrs. Trim, who, like every other indi
vidual did their best totako in all the good
pertaining to the city. Of course, wo had
to feel patriotic all the time, as agreed upon
before leaving home, so we followed tho
procession to the park, and listened to D.
T. L.'s oration ami the reading of the de
claration of independence. We don't mean
the "D.T. L." that formerly lived in Don
gala, and itemized for truthlul Tommn's
Joneslioro .Gazette. No, that "D. T. L."
wore out dozen, of new hatchets "on differ
ent subjects, but never did deny it. To cut
the matter short, the orution was a line one,
doing much credit to D.T. Llnegar. After
seeing tho boy climb the polo, and some of
tho races, also some dancing, wo wended
our way down Washington avenue and
when we came to thu ncighliorhood
of tho custom house wo took refreshment,
after which we repaired to tho "Hallidiiy"
and there Mrs. Ti.'u), entirely forgot to feel
patriotic, didn't talk any more of our uu
tion's birth, but did talk lots of chapters,
as to whether such a massive and grand
structure, would bo a paying institution.
We told her it certainly would, for it is lo
cated in a city, whose future is bright, ami
that capitalists, would eventually wall the
old Mississippi river in, with solid stono
walls, and this done it would not be many
years till the population of Cairo, would ho
counted by the hundred thousands. Mrs.
Trim said she believed it, and in such an
event wo would do all our trailing In Cairo.
From the 'Ilalllday" we sauntered up the
Ohio Leve, and when about Myers1 and
Hross' place we ugaiu commenced to
feel patrotio. Well, if that Cali
fornia wine won't make . one
feel patriotic it is because
his patriotism has entirely died out. TJju
genial Mr. Meyers made us a presout of a
can of liis best hundred year old tobacco,
aud when wo got home didn't we smoke
and bless Mr. Meyers. When we saic "we
smoke,'' I did not mean to include Mrs.
rim not much, she never smoked.
But to toll all the pleasant things we en
joyed en the fourth, would take too much
space in Tine Bulletin. What keeps
such crowds of running into J. A. Spangler's
store in Dtsngolat ' That is easy enough
told, Jake buys all his tobacco of Meyers'
at Cairo, and it in getting noined all over
the country that Meyers' tobacco is the
very best on the market. Old Trim.
THE COUNTY ELECTIONS.
The legislature of this state took a very
appropriate step when it submitted to a
vote of the people the proposition to amend
the state constitution by extending the ten
ure ot certain county oflicers which
amendment was approved by vote of the
pcoplo at tho election in November lust.
Tho Journal heartily approved the proposi
tion, ami sun regards it as iH-ing m the in
terest ot economy and uu improved luanuge
meut of local ufTairs. '
Tho effect of the amendment h w been to
lividc the county officers in the several
counties of the state into two clasdef, elect
ed alternately every two years, and each
holding their offices for four years. This
amendment is alrnady a part of the consti
tution, and therefore binding upon the peo
ple of the state and its public officials. In ol der
to make the election laws consistent with
the constitution a) it now stands, the legis
lature, at its recent session, enacted a law
prescribing that tho regular election of
county clerks, county jtnUji'S, slieniTs,
county tieii9tirrs and county superinten
dents ot public instruction shall ttike place
on the Tuesday after the first Monday in
November of 1882, and every four years
thereafter, while the same law provides that
county surveyors, 6tatcs attorneys and
clerks of the circuit court shall be elected
two years thereafter November, 1884
and bold their offices for four years. Coro
ners will be chosen in 1882 for two, nnd
after that for four years, commencing with
In v'i!:v of the fact that the constitution,
beti.rc the adoption of ttie amendment and
the laws framed under it, provided for the
election of certain ot these offici i a in No
vember of tho present year, t lie iiiiestion
has b!i'ii raised in cutain otuitus whether
the ofll'ers belonging to this class can or
should hold over until their successors can
be legally elected in 1883. Clearly, a ma
jority of tho legisl.itTjre who voted for the
act passed at the last session, and
the governor who signed the bill, fhoti'dit
that this would ho the result, and voted for
aud approval the law as the simplest meth
od of bridmni: over the period between
December, 1881, and December, 1882
wiien, Becoming to tno constitution now
amended and the htatute repealed by the
act of 1881. a new set of officers would he
chosen. TIioms who think otherwise tiuote
the following provision of the constitution
(Art. IV., sec. 28) : "No lav shall be pass
ed which shall operate to extend the term
of any public officer after his election or
appointment."- Yet tho same constitution,
in the judical article (sec. 3, Art. VI.), re
ferring specifically to comity judges ami
county clerks, says: '"All oflicers provided
for in this article shall hold their offices
until their successors shall be fualirled;"
while sections of Article X., after enum
erating the officers to be elected in each
county viz' County judge, sheriff, county
clerk, clerk of the circuit court, treasurer,
surveyor and coioner says "they sir' I hold
their respectiv nl'r'" !'ir the term ot four
years, and until tiiuir successors shall be
elected and qualified." And, as a general
nil", all oflicers of this class do hold their
offices "until their successors are elected
As ft matter of fact there is no provision
of the constitution for an election of county
officers in tins state in the year 188lj and
atter the 1st ot July, there w ill bo no law
authorizing such electiou. Under both tho
law and the constitution the persons now in
offices whose term would have expired un
der tho discarded provision of the constitu
tion ami the repented provisions of the law,
will simply hold over till November 1882.
This seems the simplest and inaxpensivo
solution tho whole question, nnd what
ever may bo tho aspirations of certain in
dividuals, is undoubtedly as just to one '
party as tho other.
