Only seven states in the Union have

Tho cattle disease in Logan county
still continues, without any remedy yet

of tho eye.

Two little boys, aged about seven and
eight years respectively, were playing in
the street on Washington avenue near
Nineteenth street yesterday evening about
tour o'clock, when one of them was at
tacked by a ferocious bore hog. The
beast grabbed the child in the calf of the
leg and while lacerating it the other little
fellow picked up a stick and rushed to
tho rescue when the beast suddenly
turned upon him, caught hit arm and
buried his teeth in the flesh. Tho cries of
the lads attracted the attention of passers
by, and Mr. Eberly, who was among the
first to notice tbe trouble, hurried to the
assistance ot the boys and rescued them
from their porilous predicament. As it is,
both boys received very painful wounds,
but they might have been crippled for life.

The importance of Cairo as a United
States hospital station has been recognized
by tho department at Washington and
gentleman from Baltimore, Maryland, an
expenencd pharmacist, has been ordered
here to assist Dr. Carter in the manage
ment of the marine hospital. Tho month
ly reports of tho hospital here show that
the amount of work done, the number of
days of treatment furnished, and the nuiu
berof patients treated, in this hospital, are
greater than is shown by the reports of
some of tbe most important hospitals in
the cast. The fact that the marine hospital
at this point is one of the important insti
tutions of its kind in tho country and ono
of the most important and most patronized
on the Mississippi river, is only another
proof of tbe truth of the Bulletin's asser
tion, that Cairo has more than its share of
that class of humanity, who depend upon
public charity for the necessaries ot life.
Every month from eight to twolve applica
tions are made by persons who are not en
titled to treatment in tho marine hospital,
and are, of couise, refused treatment. Near-
all these fall back upon the city and
county for caro, and thus it is that tho coun-
poor fund is so rapidly exhausted and
some of the poor sick creatures left to de-
pond entirely on privato charity for what
mey may need.

sion upon all by his sincere griet over tho
act of the assassin. Secretary Blaine treat
ed him almost as a brother, and tho' preju
dice engendered by tho New York sonato-
rial contest was speedily wiped . away.
Arthur's friends intimate that he, would ac
cept tho presidency only until a euccessor
to General Garfield could be elected by the
people; but Arthur's friends are . not good
Judges of human nature if they are ; honest
In their intimations. To say that Arthur
wouldn't accept the presidency in case of
Garfield's death, and hold on to it with all
tho energy that his Canadian Jqbnny-BuU
parents have imparted to him, 4s equal
to saying that Joe Roberts wouldn't drink
butter-milk, or that Cairo isrit booming,
either of which would prove tbe author's
ignorance of the facts or total disregard of
tho truth. , ,
--The question has been asked whether
the president or the government will be re
quired to pay tho physicians and surgeons'
toes in the present crisis. Tho government
both will and ought to pay tbe bills, wheth
er it could be "required" to do so or not.
Doubtless there is existing law which would
allow it to be done; and if there is not, con-
gress will no doubt pass a bill allowing
these exponses. There are so many and so
obvious reasons why this is a proper charge
against tlia people that it is a woodr there
could be, as has been intimated there is,
any considerable discussion over the point.
The Bulletin reasons thus : General Gar
field was shot as the president of the Unit
ed States as the chief representative of the
Government because he administered that
government in a certain way, which was
satisfactory to the majority of the people;
he is the country's patient his life or death
seriously affects the country's interests; in
wounding him, Guitteau wounded every
man and woman in the Union wounded,
in a certain sense, the body politic of the
Union; to cure the President's wound is to
cure the Union's wound, and therefore it is
the duty of the Government to bear tho ex
pense of modical attendance upon the pres
ident. The war between the Wickliffe and
Blandville factions in Ballard county, Ken
tucky, is still raging bitterly, as is evident
from the last number of the Ballard county
News, published at Blandville. Three times
have the Blandvilleites been defeated
twice at the ballot box and once in the
courts but still they refuse to be comfort
ed and continue to question the justice of
the verdict of the majority. The following
from the last number of the News is a
mournful tale mournfully told and we hope
it is greatly overdrawn : "Our citizens are
looking out upon the future ot Ballard
county with uneasy forebodings, and well
they may. Every one who is not blinded
ov nartv strife' realizes the fact that our
prospects are anything but bright. We are
divided into factions. "A liouso divided
against itself, shall fall." So long as we
keep up a furore about the location of our
county seat, we cannot have that harmoni
ous action which is so necessity to prosper
ity. Our county is in debt. People of
other counties see our folly, and are
quick to make capital of it.
We want to see this party spirit
die. We want to see a long, strong pull
together to get tho county out of debt. We
dislike to see property depreciate because
no one is willing to pay lull value in a
county where there is so much confusion
and disorder. Down with this idea ot an
other vote. It can bo productive of no
good, but must be productive of much
harm. The main thing is to get the matter
settled and let it stay settled. "
For years past, this idea of division has
cropped out in Ballard county, ' and not
withstanding the many rebuffs it has met,
it exists to-day. It has been repeatedly
shown to be impracticable, (not to say im
possible), and even . if . practicable,
not in any wise politic. There
aro now about seventy "pauper,"
counties in this state, and wo think it re
quires no very profound studio, to show
that if Ballard county were divided into
two other counties, no more "pauper"
would bo added to tbe list. We are of the
opinion that it would be rattier a difficult
matter to induce the letrislaturo to tske
Buch a step. Tho idea ot division is sim
ply an emanatiou from the hotbed of tho
contention, and is the offspring of political
gamesters who have "an ax to grind." In
conclusion lot us say to you that the prime
interests of our county demand a speedy
and final settlement of the difficulties un
der which wo labor. Let us await patient
ly tho decision of' the court, and set our
faces like flint against the man who would
keep up this . strife, by clamoring for an'
other voto or tor a division of the county.'
A short time ago the St. Louis Globe
Democrat indulged iu an elaborate argn
mont in favor of the removal of tho Pope's
headquarters to St. Louis, and now the
Chicago Tribune, ridiculing ; the Globe-
Democrat's argument, suggests that Chica
go is tho city above all others which should
bo selocted by the Pope for his Vatican.
Both suggestions are extremely foolish. ! It
is preposterous to suppose that the Pope, if
he should conclude to remove to this coun
try at all, would select any but the most
central position in the country lor hie Vatic

Chicago. With Chicago's chronic habit of
getting up corners on things in general and
her peculiar propensity of turniug every
thing into a source of profit, the pope
would soon find himself in the corner
of a circus tent, in a cage with bars of
manufactured gold, to be gapped at by the
plehian crowd at A nickel a head. And St.
Louis, wherein would that city be better!
Her oleoinargrine smell, coupled with 4 Joe

for his Holiness in that city. St. Louis ,too,
is a riotious and a bloody , towe ; labor and

almost equal proportions. His holiucs would

For theso good and sufficient reasons St.

Pope go iu caso of necessity? Quincy has

Roberts lives there, and where Joe Roberts

The item clipped from tho Globe
Democrat of yesterday and republished
elsewhere in this morning's Bulletin gives
information that must le looked upon by
all citizens and friends of Cairo with
great deal of satisfaction. It gives positive
proof of the consumation of a scheme
which The Bulletin some time ago pre
dicted must soon be consumated. At tbat
time The Bulletin judged only from, the
signs of the times, all of which gave evi
dence of an inclination on the part of grain
shippers to use the river in preference to
the railroad, and send to Europe by way of
New Orleans, instead of New York. Tho
facts that the river is the better route
of the two has, of course, always existed
but has not always been recognized. Yet,
as was shown by the report of a represent
ative of the Eastern grain dealcrs,published
in the Herald and reproduced in the Bul
letin some time sgo, the superiority ot the
river over the railroad as a earner of grain
became gradually known to one small ship
per after another, until the shipment of
grain by rail fell off perccptbly, and the
shipments by river increased correspond

ngly. This was the discovery made by th
. m .,
author ol the Tribune article, and immedi
ately thereafter the railroads, in order to
regain their hold upon the grain trade, be
gan a reckless cutting of freight rates which
has not yet ceased. The Illinoss Central
railroad company seems to have lwen
first to discover the importance
of Cairo as a future grain shipping point
and accordingly located its immense eleva
tor here. It is true as the writer in th ar
ticle elsewhere intimates, that during the
winter months when Cairo is at the head of
navigation, it will be the grain shipping
point of the west that it will enjoy all the
importance that St, Louis assumes in the
scheme. But moro than this Cairo has
greatly the advantage of St. Louis. It is
an importaut fact that Cairo is an open port
to the sea every hour n the year. There
need be no interruption in the transporta
tion of grain from this point because of
closed navigation at any time in the year,
and there- is not tbe . danger of snacs aud
sand bars irom Cairo down as there is from
St. Louis. The port of St. Louis, besides
be'mg closed during the winter
months, is nearly closed dur
ing a great part of the summer,
at least navigation between here and St.
Louis during a great part of the summer is
fraught with dangers tbat do not exist
from Cairo to New OrlcanB. Even now,
and for some time past, and for some timo
yet to come, boats only moderately loaded
must feel their way, in order to avoid being
grounded, and at numerous places along
tho channel lie tho wrecks of barges and
elegant steamers . snagged or stranded.
These aro important facts in Cairo's ,favor,
which will constantly hamper the St. Louis
and Now Orleans trade, and will be a con
tinued infiuenco in favor ot the Cairo and
New Orleans trade. 1 It can be but a httlo
while, when tho managers of this new barge
lino will feel this impediment, and cast
their eye upon Cairo as their principal head
quarters. This must ultimately bo tho re
sult, and in the mcantimo Cairo will
ship a large portion of tho grain of the
norti and west to Europe by way of New
