NO SMALL-POX IN CAIRO.
It seems, by the lis;ht of existing facts,
that the prison authorities at Joliet have
been OTerofflcious have been guided by a
judgment hastily formed, upon informa
tions obtained from unreliable sources,
in their quarantine action against several
of the cities in Illinois. At any rate it is'
a fact, if what the press in some of the
cities referred to has to say is true, that the
authorities have blundered badly and have
laid themselves liable to well-deserved
abuse for their uncalled-for certainly pre-
mature, action. The Springfield Register
denle. pnnit'lvoly that there in or has been a
single case of even suspected small-pox in
that city; yet Springfield is quarantined
against by the prison authorities at Joliet
"because of tho prevailance of small-pox."
The people of Quincy are indignant. The
correspondent in that city of the Chicago
Tribune says that there has not been a sign
of the disease in Quincy. There has been
case of varioloid in the neighborhood,
but no small pox. As for Cairo everyone
who knows the facts, knows also that there
is not a sign of the drecdful disease any
where in the city. The river man who, it
was suspected, bad died of small-pox, came
here sick from the south and died of the
disease with which be was afflicted at tbo
time of his arrival. So that if he had
small-pox, ho did not contract it here, and
hence bis case cannot bo attributed to any
unfavorable condition of tho atmosphere in
Cairo. Again, the fact that there have
been no subsequent cases, not even in the
marine hospital, where he lay for somo
time, and from where he was buried, proves,
either that his ailment was not small-pox,
or that the conditions were not favorable to
its spread. It will not do to say that tho
disease was not given a chance to spread
from this case; for the man was taken to
the hospital by a citizen in a buggy, who,
though this took place over two weeks
ago, shows as yet no signs of disease. There
can bo no doubt but that tho authorities at
Joliet have actud very foolishly, at least
with regard to Cairo and several other
cities. It is timo enough to publish the
fact and check commercial intercourse be
tween communities when the dreadful dis
ease has made its appearance ; but to brand
a city with "plaguo" when there is no sign
of such a thing within its limits, and thus
strike terror to tho hearts of its citizens and
parulizo its commerce, is deserving of tho
MR. O. P. LYON.
The death of Mr. O. P. Lyon has boon
already announced in The Bwxbtin. We
have uow received further intelligence con
cerning his last days, which we bellevo his
many friends hero will bo glad to see in
print. Mr. Lyon died at homo in Webster
Groves, St. Louis county, Mo., Decembor
16th, of heart disease. A fow ponths ago,
his oldest daughter, Sophia, the wife of J.
Jl. Sheldon, well known in Cairo, died,
leaving a large family of young children.
Her death was a terriblo blow to her fam
ily and friends, and especially to her father.
Ho never seemed to recovor from Iho shock,
but gradually broke down under it, until
the lamp of lifo was put out as stated
above. Ho .leaves a widow, out or two
children and several young grandchildron
to mourn his loss.
Mr. Lyon lived in Cairo from 1864 to
1874, and was well known here. He was a
genial, kind-hearted man -a man k, who

T. J. Sykes was spiritually influenced
and he was arrested by Officer Mahanny,
and fined one dollar and costs.
A stranger calling himself Charles Ma

Donnifr Reed, for indulging too freely in

The two negroes named Wajker, who
stole the fine steer from Mr. French in
Missouri, and who were captured in their
attempt to sell him on this side of the
river by Cobstable John nogan, assisted
by Mr. Louis Koehler, were examined in
the court of Justice Robinson yesterday.
Tho evidence against them was positive
and they were held 'to bail in the sum of
two hundred dollars each. They were con
fined in the county jail.
L. II. Danford, a young white man, was
caught in the act of attempting to gfiin an
eutranco to the business house of Messrs.
Smith & Brother, at the corner of Thir
tcnth street and Washington avenue. He
bad been loafing around the establishment
the greater part of the day in a very suspi
cious g. (inner. Mr. James Smith had kept
his oye upon the fellow and wheu the shad
ows of night began to full, Mr. Smith in
formed Officers Tyler and Wims of Mr.
Danford's peculiar behavior. It was
agreed between Mr. Smith and the officers
that they would watch Danford after the
store was closed at night. Pursuant
to this agreement the three . sta
tioned themselves in the Hibernian engine
house, at the hour of about 10 o'clock, and
watched. They ha l not kept vigil long
when they heard the pound of breaking
glass, coming from the direction of the
store, and hastening across the street, met
Danford on the sidewalk, near the store.
Evidently he had hurled a vessel of some
kind through the window, and stood back
to soe if it attracted any attention ; but his
captors did not see him do this, and, there
fore, the evidence against him is not so
strong as it might be. He was taken in
custody, however, and brought before Mag
istrate Comings, who continued the caoe
until the 27th inst., at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon. Danford is a stranger in the

Wesley and the "Beau,"
English society has known three great '
fops, who gave to it rules as to how it
should dress and behiyyo. "Beau Nash,"
who ruled for many years in Bath, a
fashionable watering-place was one of
theso leaders of the tun. ,; "Beau Brum
mel" and Count D'Oritay, an Imported
Frenchman, wore the other, two.. Nash
was a professional gambler; diner-out,
ana lashionarie man about town. A
big. awkward, person, with harsh, ir
regular foatures, a fop in dreis, a wit in
npeooh, and a -ties pot ;n rnle, he was
known far and wide as the "King of
Buth." When John Wosley appeared
in Bath as a street proacher, Nosh un
dertook to drivo him from the town.
Their encounter is thus reported!
Nash, the groat beau, confronted tho
peat evangelist. The great, coarse,
brawn j ovur-dressod, fashionable ex
quisite stands in tho presonce of the lit
tle mnn with piercing eye and Grecian
face, in gown and cassock, addressing
a thousand people in the opon air, who
listened with inton.se interest to the dia
logue that ensued.
"By what authority do you appear
hore?" exclaimed Nash.
"By the authority of Jesus Christ nnd
the Archbishop of Canterbury," replied
Nash had doubtless expected to moot
an ignorant, brawling '"gospeller," but
found himself faro to face with a cul
tured clergyman of the National Estab
lishment. "This is contrary to act of parlia
ment. It is a conventicle," said Nash. -
"Tho conventiclo forbidden by par
liament is a seditious meeting. Here is '
not a shadow of, sedition, therefore it is
not contrary to that act," retorted the
Beaten off his fir-it tick. Nash could
only insolently reply: "I say it is, and
besides, your proaching frightens peo
ple out of their wits."
"Sir, did you ever hear me preach?"
"How then can you judge of that you
"Sir, by common roport"
"Common report is not enough to
judge by. Give me leave to ask, sir, is
not your name Nash."
"My name U Nash."
"Sir, I dure not judge of you by com
mon report-'! j ..
This -was a botn thrust at a man who
had beou notorious among all clossosin
Bath for a whole generation as the
prince of gamblers. .
lie was a second time silonced. ne
rallied sufficiently to ask, in a tame
"1 desire to know why all these peo
ple are here?" -
"To save our souls, Mr. Nosh," shouts
an old lady, "while you tako care of
your precious body T,' ,
There were volumos of reproof and
ridieulo in this reply and its source, and
the discomfited panderer to the things
ot the flesh retired crestfallen from a
field whore he had expectod to win an
easy victory. , . .
