The woman to whom reference was
made in yesterday's Bulletin, was conr
veyed to the hospital at the instance of Dr.
Wood yesterday morning about nine
o'clock. One of the reasons why the doc
tor did not attend to tho woman the
night beforo was that ho was unwell him
self. But while this was a good enough
excuse for not attending to the case himself
it furnished no good ground for his refu
sal to give tho gentlemen who visited him
authority to take her to the hospital.
Mr. R. S. Wires, the business manager
of the Madison square dramatic company,

sung by littlo Miss Margie Wilson ; inter

As predicted in yesterday's Bulletin,
all day yesterday was taken up by the cir
cuit court in tho trial of tho negro, James
Kuott, for bastardy. The forenoon was
taken up with the examination of the wit
ness pro and con, and in the afternoon the
argument whs begun. Mr. Linegar closed
the argument in the case on the side of tho
prosecution ubout five o'clock yesterday
evening, and then tho judge instructed tho
jury in the law bearing upon the case. The
jury was out about five minutes and return
ed a verdict of guilt. Court then adjourned
until to-morrow a week, January 2d, at 0
o'clock In the morning. Thore are a num
ber of important cases yet to be disposed of
by Jhe court, which will occupy it for
about two weeks longer.
In October the Leipsig, of the Bremen
line, arrived with 8,100 heads of cabbage.
This gave an impetus to importation and
others speedily engaged in the trade. Al
though Baltimore, in this respect, docs not
rival New York, tho vegetable imports, as
compared with previous years are note
worthy. Four vessels have arrived with
partial cargoes which may be aggregated
as follows: Potatoes, 0,009 bushels, cab
bage, 11,000 heads; carrots, 30 bags; tur
nips, 6,000, and of sauerkraut 24 cases. It
is claimed by importers that the Gorman
potatoes aro superior in quality, though
hardly equal in size, to the American
growth, and that tho Holland tuber, of
which 2,000 bushjls have been received, Ib
oven better. As they can be delivered hero
at a cost below that askod by home sellers,
cargoes will undoubtedly continue to ar
jlvo during the winter. , ,
Chief McCabe, of the tiro department
repair shops, New York city, is the origi
nator of the plan to extinguish fires on the
atre stages which was tested Saturday last
by the fire commissioners. The plan re
quires the erection of a large tank with
pipes leading to the four corners of the
stage, where revolving pozzies or swivel
butts are attached. A lever controlled by
the fireman in charge allows the water to
pass through the nozzles, which are in the
form of two letters S. As the water rushes
out of the ends the nozzle revdlves, throw
ing tho stream in every direction. Four of
those nozzles at the trial on Saturday were
connected with a flro engine, throwing 600
gallons of water a minute, placed under the
elevated railway on West Third street, at
each corner of imaginary stage. In less than
a minute the whole space beneath' was flood
ed ; while water squirted in every direction
on imaginary scenery. The fire commis
sioners say tho experiment was a decided
In view of the fact that smallpox is rag
ing in several localities in this state, we
publish the following as a cure for this loath
Borne disease. It was furnished tho Liverpool
Mercury by a well-known English j)hysican,
and we would advise those who read it to cut
it out and preserve it : I am willing ro risk
my reputation as a public man if the worst
of smallpox cannot be cured in three days
simply by cream of tartar. This is the sure
and never failing remedy : One ounce cream
of tartar dissolved in a pint of boiling wa
ter, drink when cold at short intervals.
It can be taken at any time, and is a sure
preventive as well as curative. It is known
to have cured thousands of cases without a
failure. It never leaves a mark, never caus
es blindness, antl always prevents tedioua
lingering. But while we would advise the
readers of The Bulletin to cut out and
preserve the foregoing, we would supple
ment that advice by advising them not to
stop there, but to be vaccinated at once with
pure bovine virus as a preventive of small
pox which long experience has proved to
be tho best yet discovered.
The ignorauco of Speaker Kcifer of
the federal house of representatives is in
no instance more exemplified than in the
selection of Mr. J. R, Thomas, of this dis
trict, for tho position of chairman of the
committee on Mississippi river improve
ments. A more incompetent man for that
post could impossibly have been seleetad
by the SpeaKer, and whilo we hope that Mr.
Thomas will, to some extent, redeem him
self from the obloquy into which he fell
through his blundering votes upon the
question with which this committee will
have especially to deal, we cannot but ex
pect that the interests of the people of the
West are seriously endangered by reason of
his occupying so important a position. , One
thing is certain, Mr. Thomas cannot plead
lack of opportunity to do some good. As
chairman of a committee, two-thirds of
which is in sympathy with the Mississippi
river improvement scheme, we have a right
to expect that he will accomplish some
thing, and if he does, The Bulletin will
not be backward with its compliments.
In Magistrate Comings' court yester
day, a negro named Alexander Jackson was
placed under a bond ot fifty dollars to keep
the peace with the world in general and
with ohe James Orango in particular. It
appeared from the evidence before the court
that the man, Jackson, had, on Friday,
when darkness had already fallen thickly
from the wings of night, like a feather
wafted downward from an eagle in his
flight, entered tho domicile of tho said Or
ango by force and uninvited by the said Or
ange, and, holding aloft an
ugly axe, threatened to slice
Orange in revenge for a wrong which, it.
was alleged, the said Orango had dono to
tho said Jackson. But Mrs. Orange inter
fered, wrestled with the murderous minded
Jackson and succeeded finally, with the as
sistance of Mr. Orango, in depriving Jack
son of his weapon and booting from the
Orange premises. Yesterday Orange
made the complaint, and the result was a
decree from the court requiring Jackson to
either let theOranges squeeze one another
in peace, or forfeit a bond of fifty dollars
and take the consequences.
' To day we all, The Bulletih includ
ed, celebrate Christmas. That is the birth
of Him, who proclaimed the principle, that
was to point to. tho ultimate connection be
tween man and man, "love one another."
Upon this day, perhaps more than upon
any other day of the year, there prevails that
principles which makes all the world akin,
which unites by its eloctrical sparks the
great and the small, the rich and the poor,
tho hardworked and the leisurely ayc
even the criminal and the innocent. On
Christmas day, a hidden bond unites hu
manity and proclaims the existence of an
influence as yet uufathomed. This bond
is human in tho first place, but being in its
tendency universal, itisdivino in the sec
ond place. It frees itself from the individ
ual and embraces the whole, and being
built in justico to all, it grants love to all.
True, it is celebrated in a curious fashion by
some; in excess of creature comforts by
many, in their full enjoyment by most, but,
after all, ChriBtmas does something else.
It speaks to us of unity of interests, of par
ticipation of happiness, and proclaims the
great fact, that each human' being has a
right to something like gratification of nat
ural dosires in the world I The coarsest
man- will sometimes hide his coarsness on
Christmas day and the most selfish woman

A correspondent of the Pulaski Pa
triot named E. M. Low, takes up over half
a column in the paper in advocating J. R.
Thomas for another term in the federal
congress. He argues that the people of
Southern Illinois roust not change con
gressmen so often, but give them a chanco
to educate themselves in the ways of legis
lation, when they will be more useful to
their constituents. J. R. Thomas' four
years of experience is spoken of as one of
the most important claims he has for a
"third term." The same argument which
Mr. Low now uses was used when Mr.
Thomas was elected the last time and the
people heeded it, gave him a Becond term
and what did he do? During his first term
be was never heard of in connection with
any important legislation ; this was charged
to his inexperience. During his second
term he was heard of only once in connec
tion with important legislation, and this
was upon the Mississippi river improve
ment bill, when he voted directly against
the interests of his constituents. Shall this
blunder, the only one he has bad a chance
to make, also be forgiven him on the
ground of inexperience? Shall he bo
given another term in the school of legisla
tion to compromise and defeat the interests
of the people, upon the ground that be may
have 'gained something by the pooplo's
loss? Can the peoplo afford to pay bo dear
ly for the education of so obtuso a scholar?
If," after giving Mr. Thomas four yearB of
expensive schooling, the people allow him
to plead ignorance as an excuse for voting
against the bill above named, a bill the
merits of which any man of the common
est of common sense must have Been, they
are not only very foolish but criminally
negligent of their own interests. How
long is Mr. Thomas to be paid a heavy sal
ary to allow himself to be schooled? He
has been tried twice and found wanting.
Let him now be put aBide and give men ef
horse sense a chance. Besides, the people
need not so much men well versed in the
intricacies of legislation, as they do men of
good common sense, a knowledge of the
wants of i their constituents and an honest
purpose to satisfy their wants. Mr. Thomas
may have the last named qualification, but
he has shown by his career in congress so
for the Inspection of tho public the most maj
