Speaker KiefVr, by which a motion to
amend the rules requires a less majority

that, by a return to the methods prescribed

An entertainment for the benefit of
tho Threo States was given at Reform ball
last night by a number of the colored la
dies of Cairo. The attendance was very
good, so was tho entertainment, and the
proceeds were proportionate. Tho affair
was a rival of a similar ono given by t
number of other colored ladies for tho beho'
fit of tho Cairo Gazette; but whether its
proceeds wero equal to those of the latter
remains to bo seen. Very likely tho ono

rival entertainments will consider itself tho
most popular, though popularity deter
mined by purses, and popularity determin

Mr. Hubble, general distributing
acent for an international organization.
known as the "Red Cross," was in tho city
au'hin yesterday. He was here Bonio time
ago, just after the government had sent
rations to this part of tho country, with tho
object of ascertaining whether or not any
further aid were needed and of furnishing
such aid in tho name of the organization
which he represented. Ho found that there
was no need of such aid here, and he weut
south. There, too, ho found that tho ra
turns sent by tho government had beon
ample, had, as here, produced both good
and evil results. It had reliovod many
poor, but had mado many raoro who were
not in want, lazy and unwilling to help
either themselves or others. lie reported
that while tho former overflow had dono
much damago to property, stock, etc., the
present overflow would do much to grow
ing cotton which was coming up nicely
wueu he left. It is Mr. Hubhle's obiect.
also, wherever ho goes, to arouse an interest
in tho organization which ho represents,
and induco the establishment of branch
societies throughout tho country. A short
statement of tho character and objects of
the Socioty of tho Rod Cross was made in
theso columns somo timo ago, and to Bay
that thoy aro worthy of serious considera
tion by thoso interested in charity work in
every community is putting it mildly. It
is to bo hoped that Mr. Hubble will suc
ceed in arousing an active interest in tho
The reccommendation of the street com
mittee of tho city council, that a committco
of ten bo appointed whose duty it shall bo
to ascertain tho best method of preventing
tho accumulation in tho future of sipo-water
within our levees, is a very commendable
act. It is in accordance with a popular de
mand, which has been intensified by the
late experience with the aqueous evil within
our city; a demand which will not bo satis
fied unless somothmg is done, unless a hercu-
lian effort is mado by thoso in authority to
prevent a repetition of tho evil. Tho
agitation which has been going on over the
matter haa not been without profit. It has
brought to light many important facts
gathered by observation and experience,
which will servo an important part in de
termining ways and means for the future.
It has also brought into prominenco men
who havo mado tho periodical presence of
sipo water in tho city a subject of study and
observation for yoars, and who aro compe
tent to offer valuable suggestion upon tho
subject of prevention. A committee of
these gentlemen, appointed by the mayor in
accordance with tho recommendation of tho
street committee, would certainly bo able to
decide upon a good plau which would have
all the evidences of success ami, as a couso
quence, havo tho confidence of tho moss of
tho people. So far three plans for prevent
ing tho accumulation of water within tho
levees in the future havo been offered.
First, steam pumps; second, filling; third,
puddling. Steam pumps alone have been
tried and have failed. Steam pumps alone
wero a failure when tho inlets to the city
were less in number than they now are,
they would bo a greater failure now. Fill
ing to high sipo water mark would not servo
the end saught, because it would not per
mit of surfaco drainage in times of high
rivers. Filling to a point where surfaco
drainage could be had in times of high riv
ers is entirely out of the question, it is im
practicable it will, and can
never bo done, it is unnecessary.
Puddling alone has the advantage of cither
or both the other two. It has not been
tried hero, and where it has been tried it
has proven successful. Unlike pumping, it
would not necessitate a heavy outlay for
ponderous machinery and would not impose
a large yearly expense upon the city ; un
like filling to high sipo water mark, it
would not necessitate a radical change in
the grades, a confiscation of property by
citizens in moderate circumstances, and
then give only partial relief. With our
present knowledge of tho formation of
Cairo's bottom, it promises complete and
permanent freedom from all accumulations
of water. It promises to prevent sipc
water by cutting off the natural avenues,
eading from tho rivers into the city, it
promises to prevent tho accumulation of
rain-water by preventing the Baud stratas
under lying the city from being saturated
with river water, and making them servo
as great sponges to absorb the water coin
ing from above. Its principle is simple;
its conclusions aro correct if its premises
are, its execution would bo cheap. Its
principle is that if you bulkhead a wrecked
ship you prevent the inflow
of water that water will
not flow through a substanco which is im
pervious to water. Its conclusion is that
an underground leveo will as effectually
prevent water from coming into tho city
by means of underground avenues, as docs
an overground leveo prevent an overflow.
Its premises aro that the sipo water enters
Cairo by means of a number of sand ridges,
below which is a Btrataof Uuo clay which
is impervious to water. Of tho correctness
of its premises alouo is thero any doubt;
late observations havo tended to dispel
much of this doubt, a test of tho ground
by borings may dispel it all, and prove
that puddling would ho either partiully or
wholly effectual, or, entirely impracticable.
The test should bo made; something must
be done now; the committee called for by
tho Btreet committee must bo appointed and
it must act promptly; largo individual in
terests demand it, tho public good de

A MUSICAL TREAT.
Tho Choral Society entertained its
audieuce at Ilartman's Hall in a grand
mauncr last night. It made one of its best
efforts, and it acquitted itself creditably.
Though the night was fine, the audienco
was not lurjji', not near as largo as it should
have been. That it was no larger does not
speak well for the large number of Cairoites
who profess to be lovers ot fine music, and
who are usually thought to bu enthusiastic
supporters of all efforts to advance the
musical Htamlard of tho community. A
finer attraction for lovers of good music
than was offered hut night by the Choral
Society was never offered to this com
munity, and is seldom offered
anywhere; therefore, it was but na
tural to expect that Ilartman's spacious
hall would bo crowdec with the fashion
and intelligence of the city. But iustead
of this, thero were not over a hundred peo
ple present, which was a disappointment.
But this unpleasant fact did not detract
from the grandeur of tho entertainment,
and those present were splendidly enter
tained. Cairo's best vocal and instrumental
talent was nearly all present and took part,
individually aud collectively, in
the several magnificient renditions
of favorite productions by the world's
master musicians. The programme as pub
lished was carried out without variations.
To particularize in some and not in others
would he an injustice to the latter; to do
so in all, we have neither time uor Bpacc.
It is enough to say that the little audience,
composed of men and women who wero
competent to judge of the quality of music,
gave vent to feelings of high appreciation
at the conclusion of every part. Such a
verdict from such an audience is as good
a recommendation as can be
given; and a simple statement that such
a verdict was given carries moro weight
than a column of newspaper gush. Tho
Choral society added anotRer laurel to its
wreath of well-earned honor, if, forsooth,
there is room for another; it is a credit to
the city; ;thc community can justly feel
proud of it; the people should give it hearty
encouragement whenever opportunity is
