The temperance folks of Ohio have
placed themselves in an awkward position
by their own zeal., S deep was the con
viction that the liquor traffic was an iniqui
tous thing, that the peoplo embedded in
the organic law of the stato a provision that
no license to traffic in intoxicating liquors
should be granted. It turned out, howev
er, that tho refusal to license was one thing
and the suppression of the traffic a very
different matter. Tho outcome of tho con
stitutional provision was simply to make
the liquor traffic a privileged business pur
suit. At the last session of tho legislature
an attempt was made to restrict the liquor
traffic by means of an act known as the
Pond Liqnor tax law, but this was yester
day declared unconstitutional by the su
preme court of tho stato on tho ground that
it was in tho nature of a license. Tho effect
of the constitutional provision is, therefore,
to restrain tho temperance men and not the
A regular meeting of tho Reform Club
was held at Reform hall on Eighth struct
Friday night. A good audience was pres
ent ami tho meeting was of mora than
usual interest. Chief among the routine
business was the consideration of matters
connected with tho revivul which ii to
begin this week, Wednesday. It was de
cided to hold tho first meeting at Reform
hall, and subsequent meetings at difl'eront
places ti bo from time to time designated.
OnSunday uext a meeting will be held in
oao of tho churches, and will bo also held at
tho court houso. Tho programme of e xur-
cisos was also very interesting. Several
short pithy addresses were made by different
members; Miss Jennie Wright read a selec
tion which was received with demonstra
tions of favor; Rev. Scarrett read another
with like effect, and also delivered a short
lecture of much merit. A committeo was
appointed whoso duty it should bo to
select a number of Bongs, and have them
printed in a circular form for use at the
They havo had a Chinese Sunday
school class exhibition in Now York. Tho
church was packed su densely that none of
thu spectators could get out unless those
near tho door cleared out first, and they did
not havo the sumo cause to leavo that afflic
ted those in tho body of tho church. Tho
exercises opened with Chinese music on na
tive instruments, and tho screeching, and
piercing sounds were said to be agonizing
to the cars of tho audience. Tho tho tho
music produced by tho Cairo Chineso
band at the recent Chineso tea party was
like unto tho sweet strains produced by an
gel fingers upon heavenly harps compared
to tho noiso made by this genuine Chineso
orchestra in New York. If tho church had
not been so full, it would soon havo been en
tirely empty, and it is safe to sny that nono
who had that experience will ever repeat it.
Besides Chinoso music and singing, several
members of tho class showed their knowl
edge of our scriptures by reciting chapters
and passages in English and some poko
Christian prayers in Chineso. There was
some interest in tho recitations, but all pleas
ure was spoiled by tho introduction of
Mongolian instrumental music.
It is generally known that tho North
ern and Southern branches of the Prosbyto
rian church, havo been more or less alien
ated from oach other ever since tho civil
war. Tho general assembly of tho South
ern church, which recently held its session
in Atlanta, Georgia, passed a resolution re
gretting and withdrawing anything in its
former utterances which might be construed
as offensive to tho Northern church. Tho
assombly of tho latter church, sitting in
Springfiold, on receiving a telegram con
veying that resolution, passed ono similar
to it. Each body thereupon appuiuted del
egates to represent it before the othrr next
year. Thus formal fraternal relations aro
established. Thu two churches will brobs-
bly make arrangements very soon to com
bine in their work among the freedmen and
in other branches of missionary labor.
Some look for a speedy organic union.
That will probably como in time as a nalu
ral result of friendly co-opperation, but
bow soon no one can certainly toll. This
action on the part of tho two assemblies is
highly coinnirJndablo, is tho sign of tho
return of fraternal feeling between tho two
sections of country and will do much to
ward removing every vestige of sectional
ism from the face of tho country. Tho fact
that tho first step in tho renewal of this bar
monioiis action was made by tho southern
conferoiico is also a significant point.

SOME IMPORTANT FACTS.
It seems that a necessary prelimi
nary to tho determination of tho question,
as to tho remedy for the accumulation of
water within our levees in periods of high
water, is tho ascertainment of tho sources
from which this water is derived.
I' is, uncontested that there
are strata of sand ami light earth under
lying our city, which admit of the passage
of the water through them from the rivers,
and when this water meets an ooeniriL'
through the more solid earth above it
within the levees, by the operation of the
principle of natural philosophy that "water
will find its level," the flow of water from
the rivers into tho basin within our levei s
through the openings, will continue until
the waters within the levees and tho riv
ers become of an equal height.
But there is a more fruitful source
of supply to this accumulation of water
within the levees? The entire area within
the levees is 1,191 acres, or 52,083,539
square or superficial feet. Tho records of
the U. S. signal office here show that the
rainfall in Cairo for the months of Decem
ber, 1881, and January, February and
March, 1882, was 2Vi inches. This rain
fall for the 4 months ou this 1,190 acres will
make 10(!,25O,4 19 cubic feet of water, equal
to 19,184.103 barrels, of 30 gallons each,
deposited within the levees within that
Of tho 1,100 acres within the levees, it
is assumed that 3'rds were covered by
water at tho time tho sewers were opened,
the last of March, to tho average depth of
4 feet ; in some places the water leing deep
er and in more places not so deep. Two
Thirda of 1,196 acres will bo about 797
acres, or 34,722,358 square or superficial
feet; and an averagoof'4 feet of water over
it will givo 138,889,432 cubic feet, or 25,
077,258 barrels of water within the levees
at the time of opening tho sewers. Tako
from tho whole quantity of water existing,
as estimated within tho levees at that
time, which, as stated above, was 25,077,
258 bbls.; tho quantity accumulating from
rain, 19,184,103 bbls., and we have 5,893,
155 bbls., as tho wholo amount of water
accumulated at the time specified from
all other causes than rains. From
these figures it will bo observed that the
rain water w:is about 31a' times greater
than the water accumulated from all other
causes combined. This 5,893,155 barrels
ofsipoago water would cover but about 190
acres to the depth of 4 feet, an area in ex
tent of about one sixth only of tho wholo
area within tho levees.
While tho above calculation as to tho
amount of water arising from rainfalls aro
quite correct, Hiobo with regard to tho quan
tity existing at tho time of opening tho
sewers are but conjectural and approxi
mate, but can be accurately ascertained by
a careful topographical survey of the ground
within tho levees.
These suggestions aro made with a view
simply to direct attention to ono of the
censes of our lato inconvenience to which
but insufficient attention, it appuora
has been given.
To show bow important au element tho
rain water would seem to bo in any ar
rangement for remedying the troubles wo
havo lately been Bubjocted to, a statement
obtained from the gentlemanly and oblig
ing signal officer at this station is herewith
