Iu Judge R. S. Yocutu's court yester
dayMrs. CharloiteB.Brily,wifooicx Coun

upon a charge of insanity prefercd against
her by her husband. Tho jury iu tho case
was composed of Messrs John A. Reeve,
Bernard Smyth, George E. Olmstead, Dr.
Benson, Hues Downing and D. F. King.
Several witnesses wero examined, but the
evidence did not sustain tho charge ot in
sanity aud Mrs. Brily was promptly dis
charged. The Rev. D. B. Turney, formerly of
this city, is a candidate for congress from
the Mount Carmel district. The Mount Car
mel Retrister calls him the "whangdoodle
candidate," probably because he "is op
posed to patronizing a 'subsidized preas,
and get his name before the people. He has
had his announcement printed upon strips
of cloth which he is having nailed up at
the cross roais and on trees and stumps
through the woods." Mr. Turney appears
to be just as eccentric as be was when a
citizen of Cairo.
A very good audieoce greeted Mr.
Hoofstitlcr at the court bouse last night to

-Mr. William Kerrigan is tho new gen
eral superintendent of the Iron Mountain
road. Ho is well known in this city. Re
garding this gentleman's promotion from
division superintendent the Littlo Hock
)emocrat said on Mr. Kerrigan's departure
)t St. Louis: "Mr. Kerrigan is in every
sense of tho word a self-mado man, a model
r tho young men of Arkansas. He is a
practical engineer, and this, combined with
lis general intelligence, gives him a pec
uliar fitness for the position. He took a
position with the Iron Mountain company
during the construction of tho main liue
many years ago, and continued along until
he got to the top. Then he resigned aud
made a tour of tho west, taking in Califor
nia. Six or seven years bl'o he returned.
and was appointed road master of tho Ar
kansas division by Col. E. L. Dudley, who
had charge of tho division at that time.
He was Boon alter promoted to the super
intendence of the Cairo division, and only
a short time siuco was mado superintendent
of tho Arkansas division. Now we see
him general superintendent of the Iron
Mountain road, way up to tho top of the
ladder. He is as modoBt a railroader as ho
is successful, and is deserving of all his
Some of the newspapers of the country
profess to. be horrified at the thought that
Col. R. G. Ingersol, the eloquent rcvllor of
chrutianity, should have been Bolected to
deliver the last Decoration day oration in
New York. But while professing such nor
ror they fail u point out a aioglo passage in
tho orator's very eloquent address which
would not have been fit for any church pul
pit-uuless the following, which, perhaps,
convoys a slight inaccuracy, ho takon as an
exception: "Tho first shot liberated the
north. Constitutions, statutes and decisions,
compromises, platformsand resolutions mado
passed and ratified in tho interest of slav
ery became mere legal lies moan and mean
ingless, base and baseless." The implication
is that tho "constitution, Btatues and decis
ions, compromise, plat forms and resolutions,
etc.," referred to, were in full force and
scrupulously respected by all until "tho
first shot was lirod." Tho probability is
that, bad not all tlicso written obligations
been looked upon in some parts of tho coun
try as "mean and meaningless, baso and
baseless," long before the first shot was fired,
that shot would never have been fired.
Tho prospect, now flattering, of abun
dant crops and consequent good times does
not bring peace to somo of tho croakers al
ways to bo found in tho community.
"What good will abundant crops do us,"
they say, "since there is a promise of
equally abundant crops abroad, and since
though wo have plenty to sell the price
will bu low?" Ot course there is no sense
in this reasoning but it affects many people
nevertheless. It would influence none, how
ever, did they consider tho situation ac
tually as it stands. Hard times come when
it costs a great deal to purchaso what men
eat and wear, and when wages are not high
correspondingly. Good times come when
tho cost of living is low and when work is
abundant. If wo have the crops anticipated
in tho United States this season and the
demand from abroad is light, bread and
meat, for the price of meat depends upon
crops, will be low aud the cost of living
less than it has been. But, with abundance
of tho grain, it will be haudlcd, bought and
sold extensively, no matter what its price,
aud business will bo active, though priors
of all kinds, following tho prico of food,
may go down. This will be good times.
What di (Terence does it make to the work-
ingman whether be gets three dollars a day
and lives for two dollars and a half, or gets
one dollar and a half a day and lives for a
dollar? In either case he saves fifty cents a
day and only that. What he wants is work,
the chance to save that fifty cents a day
somehow, and in the most of abundance
there is abundant trade and work is for all.
With the granaries of the coun'ry leaded
the price of all things goes down, houses
may l built, railroads extended and new
enterprises of all kinds carried forward vig
orously. To have a price for grain pre
vailing abroad would bring more money
into the country, but would not aid under
takings of the class mentioned. It would
simply raise prices.

A B.VD AFFAIR.
John Reeves, proprietor of a saloon and
restaurant on Ohio levee near the Illinois
Central passenger depot, got into a verbal
difficulty with a young man named Charles
Vandevort, a switchman in the Illinois Cen
tral yards, yesterday morning, and struck
him a single, powerful blow, with a lemon
squeezer, just back of the left ear, felling
him to the floor and rendering his life a
matter of doubt for some hours.
Tho primary cause of tho difficulty was a
debt of something over five dollars duo
Reeves from Vandevort for meals. The
former had sued for it ami obtained judg
ment, and yesterday morning the latter
went to tho restaurant and offered to settle
thejudgment if Reeves would deduct tho
costs. Reeves refused to deduct tho costs
which angered Vandevort who, after
further parley, settled and demanded a re
ceipt. After receiving tho receipt Vandcr
vort said, "now, I'll tell tell you what I
think of you. I think you are a d d
dirty sneak," and whilo saying this ho mado
a motion as if to draw a weapon. Reeve
is a quick tempered man, and active. Ho
grasped a lemon squeezer (rum behind tho
bar and struck Vandevort tho blow which
felled him, and deprived him of conscious
ness until about three o'clock yesterday
afternoon, when signs of returning
consciousuoss wero perceptible; aud from
that time until latolast evening he steadily,
though slowly, improved.
The injured man was immediately con
veyed to his boarding house on Eighteenth
street, aud" Mr. Reeves was arrostod by
Sheriff Hodges who was near, nnd turned
hiin over to Chief Myers. He (Reeves)
was takon before Justico Robinson, who
fixed, bis bail at two hundred dollars, with
a promise to increase it to five
hundred ihould Vandevort grow
worse. Tho bond was given and
Mr. Rcuvci it quietly attending to his bus
iness, though fueling very badly ovor the
affair. Ho is from Centralia and very res
pectably connected. Ho was for sometime
iu tho United States mail service and is
considered by all who know him, hero and
elsewhere, as au unobtrusive, inoffensive,
The above version of the affair was ob
tained from disinterested witnesses.
THE NINTH COMMENCEMENT.
As a matter of news for tho Cairo public
au extended account of tho graduation ex
crcmos of tho Cairo High' school class of
'82, held at tho opera houso yesterday after
noon, is almost unnecessary, because peoplo
from the furthercst ends of the city were
present to witness them. But iu a faithful
chronicler of local events, each allotted
spacejaccording to its importance, tho aflair
refered to deserves more extended mention
tlimi any that has occurred in this city for
many weeks past. Tho opera houso Btage
represented a suit of drawing rooms, sur
rounded by a collonnado supporting an
elaborate entablature. Thero wero eight
grouped of columns, and against each groupo
was suspended a largo star with tips of ever
green, and each bearing in tho centre tho
name of ono of the graduates. The stars
wero cut out of thick, white card board, and
tho inscriptions, surrounded by ferns and
foliage, were produced by spatter work
with such perfect shadings that every fig
ure could bo distinctly seen from all parts
of tho house. Miss Bettie Korsmeyer did
tho work and proved herself an artist
of much titu and skill. Ovor the
folding doors was placed a shield of the
same material, bearing the inscription i,i
large letters, "l)'aci rd". The monogr m
"C.H.S.," meaning Cairo High School,
composed of beautiful (lowers v( various
colors, mingled with evergreens, escli letter
artistically aud graeul'ully intertwined with
the other, was mounted upon an iron pedes
tal andst.xtd at tho right end of the staj;e
near the loot lights. A fine piano and or
gan, a number of chairs placed iu rows in
a semi-circle, completed the stage outfit.
Over a thousand people, all inbollid y a
tire, were present, and gazing down upon
the myriads of beautiful bats and bright
fluttering fans, in the parquette and par
qnette circle one imagined that he saw be
fore him a sea of natures own flowers,waing
to and fro iu the gentle zephyrs. The audi
ence gathered early and throughout the ex
ercises gtivc evidence of deep interest and
The Chojal society which was to take
part in the extremes was on the stage in
full force, the school Itoard an! Prof.
Big!y were also there, the latter directing
the exercises. The graduating class, com
posed of Misses Jennie Elisa Wright, Edv.h
Livingston Martin, Isabella Maud Kitten
bonse, Evaline McCallister Sbepari,
Martha Ann Martin, Emma Webster,
Amanda IleU-ka Field an J Sarah Amanda
Wheeler, occupied tbe first row of chairs.
They were all arrayed in white, or delicately-tinted,
materia!, and without bead orna

Tho essays by tho members of tho class
wero no disappointment to tho intelligent

ductious of minds well stored with useful
knowledge, well versed in history and iu

At tbe end of thes; exercises Mr. George
Fisher, in the absence of Mayor Thistle
wood who w as to have performed this part
of the ceremony, awarded the diplomas to
each young lady and concluded with a nice
little Bpeech to the class. A benedictioo
by Rev. Hess, ended the festivities, except
that the graduates were fervently congrat
ulated by many of their friends because of
their successful, brilliant passage through
the trying ordeal. At least, until another
year rolls around, Cairo will never seo the
like cf this aflair again.
