Ou Saturday last a party of men from

by the late flood. Hub purty whs composed
of Mr. Will Ketchum, Mr. Mahaffy, Mose
Quinyan, W. H. Johnson, E. N. Ruaser,
Mr. Tavlor aud Jim Haley. They have a
nest of bunks on top of the boiler of tho
pile-driver and have spent their time in
rescuing peoplo from the water. They had
then saved eighteen, and all the cars, floats
and rafts in tho yards filled with rescued
stock. Among the persons saved was Rev.
Biggerstaff, wife and two children. They
lost everything they had, even to the bats
of the boys, and had one old blanket as bod
clothing for the whole family. He had
one dollar in money, and wanted to be sent
to his friends in Tennessee. When wo saw
the rescuing party, hey had just heard of
a family that were on their house top still
waiting tor assistance, and they intended to
go to them as soon as they returned to the
point. 1 ho water is higher than the tops of

to make sure that she is instructed in busi

THE LEVEE IN GOOD CONDITION.
Sunday may be remembered by a large
portion of the citizens of Cairo ns a bluo
day in its history. Even the most hopeful
felt that they were fighting a power that
tho best tll'orts of man could not withstand,
but tho leaders never faltered. Citizens,
ousiuens men anti laborers gathered in
force at ,ho Pu,nt of danger, and worked

of soaked earth and sand that stood be
tween the city and its enemy, tho water

Hundreds of men witb shovels and wheel
barrows gathered upon the Dew railroad

forenoon, and worked as men never worked
before. In the short space of three hours

were filled with clay and sand, loaded u;on
barges ond towed by Ilalliday Bros' tug
arouud to the new levee, and moored ready
for immediate uso should a break occur.
The levee itself has been "rip-rapped" with
stone and Bund bags wherever a weak spot
showed itself. Saturday night a land slide,
uot as great as that of Friday, occurred,
but tho alarm was scarcely given
before hundreds of bags of sand
wero off the barge and into the breach, and
tho spot 'mude stronger than before. A

gentle kind that only renders working in it
unpleasant without any damage. The littlo

thatwould be harmless.

the danger is not yet over, wo have reach
ed that Btage where telf congratulation and
rejoicing is in order w here men can say to
each other, "We have fought a good fight,"
and at the end of the next forty-eight hours
be oble to add "The victory is ours."
Astusual, petty thieves, rogues and ex
tortionists, have taken advantage of the op
portunity to plunder. Fraudulent tickets
for labor have been presented by men who
claimed to have either worked a certain
number of hours, or were in conspiracy with
the boss, Jack L illy, who issued the tickets,
these men were all taken, aud will be pun
