- Speaking at a conservative banquet in
the city dfToronto, Canada, on tho 23d inst.,
Sir John A. McDonald said imperial federa
tion was impracticable, and, as to indepon
denco, thero was no loyalty in it, because it
meant ultimately annexation. If the cfioicc,
however, were between independence and
annexation, ho himself would prefer an
nexation at once. Tho discussion of the
annexation of dominion to tho United
States seems therefore to bo freely iudulgod
in to be permitted by the authorites
without auy apparont uneasiness.
"Over two hundred indictments were
found at our last term of court, instead of
one hundred as supposed," says the Vienna
Times in its last issue. "Over two hun
dred indictments" at a singlo term of tbo
grand jury is something astonishing,
ye1, it is not so astonishing as
to ere the papers published in
the city, where the indictments were found,
feign astonishment at tho prevalence of
crime in Cairo, where the number of in
dictments seldom reaches fifty and averages
less than half that number at each torm.

Borstadt has charge of the manufacturing
department of Mr. Buder's establishment,
and, besides being un artist, he is also an
expert as a manufacturer of jowclry. Ho
has been connected with the establishment
for over three years, and has contributed
much toward the success which has attend-
ed Mr. Buder's business during that time.
-' Captain John R.Thomas, our member

against last woek for selling a bottle of Mc

Tersuant to adjournment, Judge K. S.
Yocum convened court yesterday morning
at the usual hour, nine o'clock. The report
that the adjournment the day before was
until next Wednesday, was founded upon
an orderof the court to that effectjbut this
order was changed in deference to tdie
wishes of the attorneys in the case civil of
Brown vs. the People, who desired to dis
pose of this case yesterday morning. Ac
cordingly this waa the first case called yes
terday morning, but it was continued upon
petition of the attorneys for the defense,
who were not prepared to no to trial, be
causo of tho absence of important witnesses.
Tho next case called was that of the Peo
ple vs. Alexander II. Ireland, for selling
liquor without license. There were two
cases of this title, and both w ere continued
because of tho absence of important wit
nesses. Of tbe four prisoners referred to in yes
terday's BcLLETin, two wero tried. Peter
Quinn,who, it will be remembered, stole a
satchel from a washer woman on Commer
cial avenuo some time ao, plead guilty and
was fined ten dollars and conts and sentenc

J. B. THOMAS' DUPLICITY.
Cairo, Ills, Nov. 20th. 1881 .
Editor Cilro Uulluttn:
An article in your issue of the 32 1 inst.
informs the reading public that Congress
man Thomas a few days ago appointed
Bobroy Bidenbauer, of Vienna, to a cadet
ship at West Point, with Jewett Biker, son
of I). J. Baker, of this city, as alternate.
Mr. Thomas' judgment may bo good, doubt
less is so in the selection ho has made, But
his memory is certainly faulty.
There is a youth wIioho home is in Mr.
Thomas' own town, who, tho writer happens
to know, has in his possession a written an
suranco from Mr. Thomas that he slould
bo notified of a competitive examination,
whon lio might havo tho opportunity to try
hischancc for a cadetship at West Point,
I refer to Thomas It. Smith, Jr., son of
Lieutenant Col. Thomas II. Smith, who
foil at tho battle of Fort Donaldson, Tenn.,
February 15th, 1802, a man well known at
that time in Cairo and southern Illinois,
having been a prominent lawyer, a gonial,
warm hearted gentleman, n bravo soldier,
who died leaving an untarnished namo to
hit children for an inheritance, and them
to tho totidcr mercies of a grateful country !
His only son would consider it a priceless
boon to bo allowod to follow in his father's
foot steps; but for some unaccountable rea
son to him, his efforts in that direction havo
boon failures, and his appeals only met
with hollow promises. Perhaps for tho rea
son that ho is poor and without influential
friends. It cortainly is not because he Is
wanting In Intelligence. At least ho only
asks a chance to try with others.
