Successful observations of Wells' comet
were made at the Dudley observatory at the

Civil Engineer Charles Thmpp has
finished his survey of the Mississippi levees
and has prepared a chnrt showing their
present hight and dimensions, which is now
in tho hands of the street committee. The
chart shows that tho levees uro lowest
near the point ami that they w ill need con
siderable widening iu some places in order
1 1 meet the dimension d cided upon by the
council. Tho new levee also still needs
much work on the outer slope and on top.
Tho Texas and Cairo narrow gauge
road will connect with the Gulf, Colorado
aud Santa Fe a few miles north of Temple
to-day, thus giving Waco a direct outlet to
Galvestiti,and the Gulf, Colorado and Santa
Fe a favorable route to East Texas, Arkan
sas, Cairo and St, Louis, independent of the
Gould system. It is anticipated tho nar
row gauge will be open for business direct
to St. Douis this fall. As it is, business
an be done by the two Hues from tho gulf
at Galveston to Red river beyondTtxarkana.
The narrow gauge will be pushed westward
to Gatesville, Coryell county.
At the last meeting of tho county
board $1,473,123 was drawn agaiuit tho
county poor lund; $1011.50 of this amouat
was allowed the Sisters of the Holy Cross,
for the care and burial of county paupers
during six mourns, and $537.50 to Dr.
Wm. Wood, for services and expenses in
the same porlod of time. These amounts
have been allowed by tho board, but as
there is no muro money in the county
poor fund, aud as orders have already
been drawn against all taxes levied for
this fiscal year, it has.becu ordered by the
board tliat the clerk draw no moro orders
until after further direction ot tho board.
These bills, therefore, among a largo num
ber of othors, including tho salaries of tho
members of tho board, and amounting in
all to $3,388.03, can not bo paid until after
tho next lax levee.
A negro woman who was defeated yes
terday in Justice Robiusou's court, iu her
attempt to have another womau fined for
abusive language, took an appeal and will
carry the case to tho next superior court.
The defendant in the case is Mrs. Clurksoii,
thcSth street hairdresser; tho complainant
is the sister-in law of Tom Clarkson, the
divorced husband of tho said Mrs. Clink
son. Tom and his sister-in-law w ho was
shoving a baby buggy, containing a baby,
was passing by Mrs. Clarkson 's Bhop, when
that lady remarked, "Tom, how is your
sister-iu law's baby?" Tho sister-in-law,
being unmarried, considered this remark as
an imputation against her virtue, aud she
brought suit for abusive language. So
trivial an affair is likely now to grow into a
long and expensive legal war, but it is only
a sample of many such.
One of the curious results of lust year's
drouth isthat it taught the farmers by prac
tical experiuncethat they need not feed their
cattle corn. During the pat whiter farm
ers did not have the com to feed; the cattle
nibbled what grass they could find, and
lived on tho stiaw stacks, some of the
stacks being three or four years old. The
result was, they camo thiough tho winter
in better condition than wIich fed altogether
on corn. When they were fed ou coin they
wnuld uot eat straw. To sum it up in
a few words, farmers have f jund by expe
rience that it is not necessary to feed corn
to keep cattle through the winter, but that
they will thrive on the otherwise worthless
wheat straw stacks. Hereafter they will
uot devote as much land to corn, but more
to wheat, as, even if that is a partial fail
ure, the straw will serve as well as the
corn to keep their cattle; and if the wheat
is a success, the crop will be double.
The New Tirk Herald is advising
people what to eat, now that meat is so
high, and suggests poultry, eggs, fisl
game, lobsters, clams, etc. Its remarks in
regard to potatoes are very sensible. It
says: Next to leef the American adores
the potato. Mealy or waxy, mushy or
hard, cheap or dear, the potato must al
ways be bought, aud as it commands now
from $2 to $3 a bushel it costs more than
it is worth. Tho present cost of a bushel
of potatoes might fur better be expended
on rice, hominy, oatmeal, peas, beans or
other farinaceous and leguminous food ; for,
although the potato ranks as a vegetable,
it is in this capacity very unsatisfactory and
deceptive. There is more nutriment and
less trouble in a $2 bunch of bananas, at
present prices, than in $2 worth of pota
toes; and, if the special sanitary virtues of
vegetables are desired, they can bo found
more abundantly in half a peck of onions,
or a few penny bunches of radishes, than iu
a whole bushel of potatoes.
Rev. Louis Boon, of Chester, advises
nconlii to hinrrv u Ii'iIh in rln.tr tpf.riu hiwl
urges parents to try to induce their children I
to contract early marriages. The reasons
w'-ich the Rev. gentleman gives in support
of his suggestion are that youthful love is
stronger, and that marriage will keep boys
and girls from the streets and from vice.
"While your sons stay single," says Rev.
Boon, "they will run about at night and
make their parents trouble. O parents,
encourage your sons and daughters to mar
ry suon and save their character. This sub
ject is of vast importance and I hope that
fathers and mothers jn Randolph county
and elsewhere will road this prayerfully,
and may the Lord God bless you aud your
children, and the Lord keep your sons
from those places of infamy." Rev. Boon
is too for advanced iu his ideas of civiliza
tion for this country, lie should emigrate
to China, where tho beauties and tho
miseries of very early marriages prevail in
all their hidious glory.
The custom house walk, which was to
have lasted eight or ten years, is already
hhowing signs of speedy disintegration.
For some time past it has been cracking
extensively in various places, which it whs
thought would be entirely avoided by the
leviding crevasses which were to enable it
to expand without cracking. Iu this respect,
it seems that the gentleman who laid tho
walk was much mistaken. At the gate lead
ing IntotheprcmiHes from Fourteenth street,
near Poplar Btreet, a large plat of the com
position extending entirely across the walk,
which was previously cracked, has been
removed. In walking around the square a
hollow sound is perceptible iu some places
which leads to the conclusion that these
places have a poor Imsis, and are liable
soon to cave iu. Tho similar walks on
Cuiumerdal avenue, constructed by the
samo party who laid the custom hotisa walk,
have fared even worse, one of them has
crumbled away very badly. It would ap
pear from theBe facts that both the govern
ment and tho citizens who had these walks
laid in front of their property, havo been

but they seemed useless in conquering the

The rival Republican candidates for
congress aro making desperate efforts to
capture, each for himself, tho two counties
of Alexander and Pulaski at the primaries,
to beheld iu each of them soon. They
know that upon these two counties depend
their respective fates. If tho delegates id'
both uro instructed for Capt. Thomas, that
gentleman will huve ten votes more on the
flrsr ballot in the convention than will be
necessary to nominate him, and the gi ntle -nieu
who oppose Capt. Thomas, seem to be
strongly iiiipre-ied with the idea that the
captain will cirry off the pri.'i. At any
t nli', it 'their efforts in these two counties
duiiug tin last tew days can lie taken as
any evidriico of their belii f, it is certain
that they see in Mr. '''homas' chances a verj

Young have been in this city, letting their

further their interests during their own ab
sence In the matter of deputies, Judge
Datnron feoms to have much the advantage
of Judge Young, in fact it seems as though
the latter might as well eutirely abandon
the field iu favor of his rivals. The negro
vote, which is the major part of the Repub
lican party in this city, is of coiirsu receiv
ing the most attention. But Cupt. Thomas,
who has not been here, but who is at his
post of duty in Washington, while his rivals
are waging a fierco war against him at
home, haw aluo a uumber of very rnergetir,
voluntary workers engaged in his behalf,
among both the white and colored voters
of this city and county. His cause has
not suffered in the least, and it will not be

The ordinance providing for the estab
lishment of a public library in this city,
passed finally at the last meeting of the
cily council, requires the mayor to appoint
uiue citizens to act as directors, subject to
tho approval of the council. It requires
the mayor also, with tho advice and consent
of the directors, to provide a suitable room
for said libiary snd reading room. It de
clares that the legal titlo to the luniks ami
fixtures, etc., ot said library shall bo in
such board of directors, to be held by them
in trust for tho city of Cairo and its citi
zens. It provides penalties for wilfully de.
facing or keeping any of tho property of
said library, and specifies that suits
for tho enforcement of any of
tho provisions in tho ordinances,
shall be brought in any police
court and prosecuted by tho prosecuting
attorney, or by tho corporation counsel.
And in conclusion it accepts the donation
of tho Woman's Club and Library Associa
tion, upon tho conditions uamed by the as
sociation. Thus an important step bus been
done toward tho intellectual advancement
of tho Cairo public an advancement of
which all who will can avail themselves.
