-The mystic crew, to the number of about
thirty, clad in white suits and carrying fans
and other devices, marched through the
streets of the city to the sound of a bass
drum last night about eleven o'clok. Al
though the ground was covered with ice
and enow and temperature was below the
freezing poiut, they seem to find starching
a warm business, for all used their palm
leaf fans vigorously as they went along.
Tho temperature in this city yesterday
ranged from sixteen degrees at 6 o'clocd in
the morning to twenty-three at the same
hour in the evening. At St. Louis it was
sixteen degrees above zero nearly all day.
Should the temperature remain at this point
for four or five days it
is probable that the Mississippi river would
close between here and St. Louis, which
"would be a consummation devoutly to be
wished," for it would mean much busi
ness for Cairo. It is not probable, however
(so says Bergeant W. H. Ray), that the
temperature, will remain at tho freezing
point so long.

Senator Logan has offered an amend
merit to his bill to devote all revenuo do
nved lrom the tax on whisky to the pur

proposes to distribute tho money to the
states and territories according to popultt'
tion, insteud of in proportion to tho illiter
acy of tho population. This will mako
very material difference In'the 0iount tho
different states would receive. Tho original
bill would have given tho largest propor
tion to the south, where the number of
illiterates is much greater than in tho
north, owing largely to the colored popula
tion. The amendment, if adopted, will dis
tribute tho money per capita according to
tho numbcr of children of school ago in
each state and territory. Tho amendment
also provides that none of the fund shall be
used in building school-houses, but all of it
must bo employed strictly, for education.

The negro, Filmoro Wade, who has
been confined in tho pest-house for a week
or ten days with typhoid fever and vario
loid, died yesterday evening about 4:45
o'clock. ' Dr. Carter was in attendance when
he died and made turn as comfortable as
possible. Ho will probably bo buried to
day, or was, last night. Wade 'was about
twenty-seven years of age? he is a native of
Tennessee, whore it is believed ho has rela
tions living. Ho came here about a mouth
ago as a river man and gained admission to
the marine hospital by reason of being af
flicted with rvphoid fever. When tho
negro Black was scut to Cairo from Pa
ducah because ho had the small-pox, and
was taken into the marine ward of the hos
pital hero and cared for until tho
pest-houso could bo gotten ready,
Wade, who was just recoverin,
from a hard but successful fight with
typhoid fever, took emall-pox from Black,
and soon followed him to the pest-house,
where he breathed his last yesterday. Thus
it appears that the Taducah gentlemen, who
sent Black to Cairo, knowing that he was
sffiicted with tho small pox, havo already
the blood of one human being upon their
hands. How many more will follow this,
time will soon tell. Tho other lour pa
tients now in the pest-house are doing very
well indeed, and there is ground to hope
that all will speedily recover. There have
been no further developcments of tho dis
ease in tho hospital, but there is cue pa
tient under isolation, in anticipation that he
will show signs of varioloid either to-day
or to-morrow, ne has been exrf'.oJ to tho

A gentleman who has been in attend
ance upon circuit court during last Week
calls The Bulletin's attention in writing
to a defect in the law of the state, which
has been noticed by nearly all who have
given much attention to court matters of
lato'years, whether they aro lawyers or not.
The gentleman referred to calls attention to
the rase of Richard Taylor vs. tho Illinois
Central railroad company, in which the
plaintiff claimed damages to the amount
of thirty dollars for tho wagon wrecked by
tin engine belonging to defendant. This
case occupied a whole day of tho time of
the court, lawyers and jury. The expenses
of the court for one day, exclusive of the
judge's and stated ottomoy's
salary and fees, was, at that
time, just exactly forty dollars
and fifty cents; so that, had the court or
dered that tho claim of defendant be paid
out of the circuit court fund without any
litigation, the county would have saved just
ten dollars and a half. It is perfectly right
and not a word is said against it, that the
expenso of conducting criminal prosecu
tions should be borno by the community at
arge, forjfrora tho prosecution of criminate,
society in general derives a great benefit;
but it docs not seem right that tho com
munity at large should bear all tho expenses
of litigation lietwoen individuals. As the
law now stands tin expenses of tho circuit
andcounty courts are all paid out of funds
raised jby general taxation, nd to maintain
these funds is Alexander county's heaviest
task. We aro not a lawyer and do not pre
tend to bo any more matured in judgment
than we are in years; but still wo may bo
allowed modestly to lay claim to a fair
amount of common sense, and this tolls us
that, at least a portion of tho expense at
tached to civil trials betwoen individuals,
Hhould bo borne by tho litigants. Jury
fees and tho daily allowances of bailiffs
and deputy sheriffs ought to como from
the pocket of tho plaintiff or tho de
fendant. At a meeting of the Southern Illinois
state Teacher's Association, held at Flora,
Ills., on the 29th ultimo, the following res
olutions woro passed : Resolved, That we,
the members of tho Southern Illinois State
Teachers' Association, aro in sympathy with
the objects of tho Women's Christian Tem
perance Union, and request all teachers of
physiology to give especial attention to tho
injurious cfiects of alcohol upon tho human
system. Tho teachers ot tho Southern Ill
inois Stato Association declare further:
1st. Wo have faith in tho efficacy of
teachers' associations, and believe it to be
the sacred duty of every teacher, of what
ever rank, to attend every meeting
of teachers called in tho Inter
ests of popular education, and to
promote tho interests of our public schools.
3d. To succeed in a profession, requires a
love for that profession; hence, we boliuvo
that special encouragement should be given
those persons who love teaching, and who
embark in teaching as their profession for
life, and urge school officers all over tho
stato to avoid tho employment of teachers
who enter the profession simply as a stop
ping stono to sumo other profession. Sd.
The common schools aro the property of
tho people; all aro equally taxed for thoir
support; all are equally entitled to the bono
fits. Whilo we believe that tho highest
principles of morality should bo taught tho
children of our public schools, tho school
room should be kept forever froo from
sectarian and political influences. 4th. We
belicvo that the miud and character ii
moulded and iushioued by tho books wo
read ; therefore, we urge overy teacher to
use all his influence in cultivating in bis
pupils a taste for the higher and nobler
cIhsb of literature. 5th. Tho teacher is ono
of tho component parts of our public school
system ; it is his duty to guard tho interests
of tho schools against pernicions and an
tagonistic legislation, and wo urgo every
teacher to uh his influence to select mem
hers of tho legislature of our state who are
earnest aud jealous supporters of our free
school system. Oth. To keep pace with the
progress of his profession, it is necessary
for tho teacher to read tho journals of edu
cation. We insist that every teacher should
subscribo for at least ono ot the standard
journals of his profession.
In reply to the Free Press, of Carbon
dalo, which made the statement that the
comraitteo on Mississippi levees, of which
Mr. J. R. Thomas is chairman, was a kind
of nononitv. The Bulletin mado tho
point that Mr. Thomas had the privi
lego to go beforo tho committee
on Commerce which now has charge of all
appropriations offered to be made for tho
improvement of the Mississippi river any
where from its mouth to its source, and to
either advocate or oppose such proposed
appropriation; also that it was proposed to
give Mr. Thomas' committee exclusive con
trol of Mississippi river appropriations,
The Frou Press replies that any other
congressman, or any citizen, hs the same
privilege; that Thomas! had tho samo priV'
ilege before ho was appointed upon tho
committee; that the proposed extension of
the jurisdiction of Mr. Thomas committee
is a question for the future; that "Mr.
Thomas is not a representative man is not
the man to intelligently work for the inter
ests of his district we shall not bo one of
those who attempt to pre6umo upon tho
credit of tho people by declaring him to
he either a very great or a very bad man.
Nothing is good nothing is bad; Mr,
Thomas is a nothing, and as such wo shall
treat him in what we may hereafter dis
cuss." wnewi and tins lrom tne uepuo-
lican editor of a Republican paper in a
Republican district about a Republican
congressman! And just to think, that in
this tirade against Mr. Thomas, the Free
Press only acts as the Republican mouth
piece of a hord of prospective Republican
rivals of Mr. Thomas I There is blood in
Barton's eye, yet it is certain that, both
being of the same political faith, Barton
loves Thomas a little ;' but it may be
said to be the same love which Brutus
felt for Caesar and, under slightly differ
ent circumstances, it would have a similar
end. If circumstances taKO a slight turn
in tho right direction we shall expect to see
John Henry Brutus marshal his clan, ad

There are claims agoiust the city to
the amount of about fifteen hundred Qol-
lars, which, though allowed, cannot at
present be paid. There have not even
been any orders or scrip issued for them,
and the reason why may be a matter of
interest to those holding tho claims. In
the firut place there is no money in the city
treasury against which orders may bo is
sued and the state law prohibits the issuc-
ance of orders or scrip unless there is
money in the treasury to meet such orders
or scrip, l no last cent there was in tne
treasury was sent to New York to meet
the interest, etc. on city bonds. - But this
would not havo drained the city treasury
were it not for the fact that the council has
changed the beginning of tho fiscal year
from tho 1st of Januarytotho 1st of May.
By this change tho date of tho payment of
saloon licences, amounting during a year to
about nino thousand dollars, was post
poned from January 1st to May 1st; thus,
tho sources from which in former years
money flowed into the treasury on
tho first of this month are closed
until about a month and a half
from now. But even this change would
not havo resulted in a complete drain of
tho treiiaury wero it not for the additional
fact that for somo reason a number of
special sidewalk assessments, amounting
in all to about seven thousand dollars, and
which havo been duo for somo timo past'
have not yet been collected. Thus it
will bo seen that if all had gone this
year ns it went last year with regard to
Baloon licenses, and as it Hhould have gone
with regard to tho special assessments on
sidewalks, thero would bo from ten to fif
teen thousand dollars in tho city treasury
right now. As it is, there is nothing, and,
unless tho finance commit two makes spe
cial efforts, either to havo tho assessments
collected, or in devising somo other means
of replenishing tho depleted treasury, there
will bo no money until after tho first of
May, when tho saloon-keepers will como
forward to purchase- tho right to do business
for another ysar, or a less petlod. In tho
meantime, however, tho financo committco
will probably provide money enough to
meet tho littlo claims now pending
against tho city, and those likoly
to arise betwoen now and the
1st of May, and it is probable tkat per
sons holding claims against the city, which
havo boon allowed by the council, will bo
able to got ordors on the treasuror within
tho next ten days or lees time.

As predicted in yesterday's Bulletin,
tho attendance on tho musical convention
at tho PresbytornJan church was much
larger last night than it bad been the night
before. This fact may be accounted for in
part by the slightly improved weather, but
principally, perhaps, hy the great success,
which attended the first night's meeting.
Thero were betwoen one hundred and thirty
five and ono hundred and fifty singers pres
ent, comprising moat of tho best voices in
this city and a number of good voices of
neighboring cities. There were also
a dozen or more visitors wha took no active
part in tho exercises, but who were undoubt
edly as much interested as those who did
The exercises consisted entirely of a prac
tical Btudy of music. Many beautiful songs
were sung in a manner and with an effect
which left no room for criticism and gave
Prof. Shcrwin much encouragement. The
professor has, beyond a doubt, a natural
talent for teaching music and conducting
large choruses; he has tho practiced ear to
detect errors quickly and the ability
to make his pupils understand exactly
wherein they err and how to correct it.
He has the convention well in hand and
will succeed, before the time of his de
parture arrives, in giving a great impetus
to music in this city. None who havo at
tended and taken part in the meetings of
the convention so far can fail to feel entire
ly satisfied with tho progress made.
Misses Emma James and Ada Scarrctt
presided with moie than ordinary ability at
tho piano and organ last night.
The hours of practice were from 7 :30
until 10 o'clock.
Court " convened yesterday morning
pursuant to adjournment. The cose
Henry J. Fisher vs. the City of Cairo, which
was begun tho day before, was again taken
up anil concluded, for the time being. The
plaintiff in this cose sued for the interest on
City of Cairo bonds amounting to four
thousand dollars, issued in 1807. The trial
of tho case occupied the greater part of the
day and wa9 ably conducted by the attorneys
on both sides. It was given to the jury in
the afternoon and a verdict was found in
favorof plaintiff, allowing him seven hun
dred and fourtten dollars, tho full amount
of the intcrett due.
Several motions were made and argued,
chief among which was ono for a new trial
by the attorneys for the defence in the case
of John McNulty vs. United States Marshal
Wheeler and his deputy, Peter Saup. This
case, in which the value of a quantity of
merchandise, Illegally levied upon by the
defendants, was involved, had been decided
the day before, and the jury had allowed
the plai ntiff eleven bund red and forty dollars.
The court entertained the motion, believing
that the jury had fixed too high a valuation
upon the goods in question, and informed
the attorney for tho plaintiff that, unless a
vemittatur in the sum of two hundred dol-
ars were entered by the plaintiff, a new
trial would bo granted. Tho court's prop
osition was taken under advisement by
The case of Chatham Fisher vs. Ellen and
Patrick Dugan was next taken up. The
matter at issue in this case is the value of a

Two white men named respectively Chas.
Cooper and Joseph Howard wero arrested
yesterday by Officer Mahanny upon the
samo charge which it was threatened to
