Several hundred car loads of earth and

-A good comic song. We have re
ceived from the author and publisher, Will
L. Thompson, East Liverpool, Ohio, a
splendid comic song, entitled, "My First

Everybody enjoys a good comic son?.
This onewill certainly be very popular.
We advise all lovers of music and mirth to
send 40 cents to the author and receive a

A new prophet has been discovered in
tho person ot Rev. Dr. Wild, of Toronto,
who, in a recent sermon, proclaimed that
the United States and Great Britain would
soon consolidate for the civilization of the
world, that the United States would be an
nexed to England, England to Jerusalem,
and Jerusalem to God. Unfortunately, Dr.
Wild noglectcd to announce the date of
these interesting events, and no tickets to
the show have yet been issued.
There aro sixty-eight saloons in the
city. The licenses of forty-eight of these ex
pire on the 31st instant; of the other
twenty, on the 20th of May, next year.
There are not over ten or twelve saloon
keepers in the city who would favor an in
crease in the yearly license. These ten or
twelve would be willing to pay a thousand
dollars per year, because it would have a
tendency to reduce the number of saloons,
and thus increase their business.
Messrs. Shelton & Curry, two enter
prising young men, have fitted up the
building, at the corner of Thirtecuth street
and Commercial avenue, in a truly mugni

I lunch are served to the public in a dining-
room that is truly palatial in its Japanese

Senator David Davis lias certainly
made an unexceptionable choice in his ap
pointment of a private secretary. Mr. Jas,
E. Harney is one of tho wheel-horses of the
democracy, and a man of high character.
Ho was minister to Spain under Buchanan,
and has been a resident of Washington for
many years, always prominent in the coun
sels of the party. IIo was a member of tho
democratic advisory committee in tho last
presidential campaign, and took active per
sonal part in tho management of the canvass,
Tho gentleman who sworo out a war
rant to prevent Senator Mahono from light
ing a duel with the belligerent Jubal A.
Early, seems to have bocn the victim of a
cruel "sell." Early's bitter hostility to
Mahono is well known, and there is reason
to believe he had addressed a note wbich
might bo regarded in tho light of an invita
tion to meet him on ' the battlo of honor."
On appearing before tho magistrate, in an
swer to the summons, Senator Mahono
stated that ho bad no idea of accepting a
cnanontioto light an old man like Early.

The Senate Saloon, at tho corner of
Thirteenth street and Commercial avenue,
is a new institution; it is also one of the
handsomest saloons in the city. It is well
stocked with tho finest liquors, and fresh
oysters in their season.
Two horses attached to an empty brick
wagon and standing in front of Mr. C.
Osterloh's feed store, on Commercial ave
nue, near Twentieth street, were induced to
run away yesterday evening, about 5:30
o'clock, by being backed agniiiBt by a
butcher's wagon. They ran for about two
squares up tho avenue, scattering loose
boards along the street and raising con
siderable dust; but no damage was done.
A Big Washing. On tho arrival of the
big show, Saturday morning, that Leviathan
Monster, the Warrior Elephant, Emperor,
nml the twin babies, Topsey and Jenny,
will do up their seasons washing in tho
Ohio. This will be a sight worth gazing
upon, and once seen, never to bo forgotten.
The old boy is said to bo playful as a kit

friends. Don't miss seeing this sight.
Thursday afternoon, about 3:30
o'clock one of tho men engaged at Villa
Ridge in loading cars with earth for tho
Illinois Central railroad, had one of bis
arms broken in two places by beir.g bur
ied under a quantity of earth which caved
in. He, with a number of other men,
went down with the embankment upon
which they were diirging, but none of the
others were hurt. The injured man was
brought down here and Dr. Parker attend
ed to him properly. j
Tho Ohio river rose three inches at this
jMu'nt during the twenty-four hours ending
at 1:11 p. m yesterday. It is expected!
that it will soon take a sudden jump at t'
guago from the effect of back water in
the Mississippi, which is booming h1o'.'
Much damage is being done by tho high
water in the latter river. Farm houses have
been torn away, and are coming down;
lands hive been flooded, and levees broken.
It was expected thai the Sny levee, at cr
near Hannibal, Mo., would break yesterday.
Report reached hero yesterday that
a young man named John McAuliff, fa
miliarly known here as "Johnnie Mack,"
whose mother ki-eps an eating-house on
Ohio levee, near the Illinois Central
passenger depot, was shot and killed in a
row with the captain of the tug, C. F.
Neagle, upon which he was fireman. The
affair is said to have occurred at Green
ville, Mississippi. John started from
here on tho tug aforesaid,
about four weeks ago; the tug having in
tow three surveying boata with a govern
ment surveying party on board. He is
known among river men here as not a
quarrelsome young fellow. His mother
telegraphed to Greenville yesterday after,
noon for reliable information; but up to a
late hour yesterday evening had received
According to reliable authorities, there
are fifty-six cotton seed mills, most ot them
situated in the southwestern portion of the
United States, one of the largest of them
being situated in this city. These mills
use yearly about 410,000 tons of seed, which,
after being cleansed from lint and husks,
and chopped very fine, are parked in wool
en bags placed between horsehair mats ami
submitted to a hydraulic pressure. The
expressed oil is either barrelled at once cr
treated with caustic soda, yielding about 82
percent, of purified or "line" oil. The
total yield is about 15,000,000 gallons an
nually, of which, it is stated, about 10,000,
000 gallons arc sent to France, and thero
mixed with about one-third of oliv? oil.
The mixture is then shipped from France
to all parts of the world.
Words of wisdom are these,
written by the editor of tho
Louisville Courier-Journal, in speak
ing of David Davis. They are applicable
also to fence-riding-milk-and-water news
papers, whose fear of giving offense and
losing patronage makes them contemptible
cowards and mere noueiities, politically
and every other way: "Independence in
politics, like neutrality ij war, has usually
pure selfishness at the bottom of it. Every
man should be sufficiently independent
to call his soul his own, to have the courage
of his opinions, ami to be able, within his
party, to make himself and his convictions
felt. Such a man is Mr. Bayard. But
when a politician hcts himself above all
party and parties, isolates himself from
political fellowship, he is pretty sure to
be either an impracticable or self-seeker."
From an extra census bulletin, re
ceived at this office yesterday from tho
statistical department at Washington, it
appears that Alexander county raises
every year, upon 14,159 acres, 454,705
bushels of Indian corn; upon 052 acres,

The extension of the fire limits in thq
city is, it seems, acting as a barrier to the
erection of frame residences, which Cairo
now needs as much as anything else. The
limits have been extended as far as Twenty-first
street, including a number of
squares which are as yet not near built up.
One gentleman said a few days ago that ho
would build ien cottages upon unimproved
property in the fire district, but that he
could not obtain permission to build them.
Another who lives about forty miles out
side of the city, has been here for several
days looking for ground about Fourteenth
street somewhere, upon which to build a
large frame business house; and has found
the ground he likes, but finds that it is in
the fire district. He has given up the
idea with which he came here. The coun
cil has been in the habit of using
proper discretion in the enforcement of tho
ordinance fixing the fire limits ;thit is, it has
given persons who desire to put up sub
stantial buildings in the district, included
in the fire limits, which would be a credit
to the city, the priviledge to do so, and
this is right, one of the objects of establish
ing lire limits was probably to prevent tho
erection of such shanties as di. irraco
Ohio levee, between Twelfth and Four
teenth streets, in tho business portion of
the city. It is probable that, if tho gen
tlemen referred to really dosim to erect
buildings that will not bo a disgrace to the
city, they can obtain the priviledgo to do
bo from the council; provided they do not
ome too near the present business portion
of tho city.
