ruption of business caused by the late

also experienced the same symptom about
eight o'clock, but in a milder degree, A

The statistics of deaths for last week
in Cairo, St. Louis and New Yoik shows a
condition of things, which speaks well for
Cairo's health. The deaths in St. Louis last
week were 200; in Now York, 1,817. The
population of St. Louis, according to the
new census, was 350,090, and that of New
York 1,200,000. B-ith cities liavo grown
largely since this ceustis was taken in 1S7'.,
but the figures will answer for comparison.
New York is less than four times as largo
as St. Louis, but its morality last week w as
six times as luge asthat of St. Louis. In
St. Louis there was one death
to every 1,750 souls; in New York
there was one death to every 9S0 souls.
In this city of twelve or fifteen thousand
people there were no deaths during last
week resulting from sickness con
tracted iu this city. Three people were
buiied from here Sunday, but
one of them had committed suicide, an
other came here sick 'from Chicago ex
pecting to be benefitted by Cairo's healthy
atmosphere, and the last died of a virulent
fever in Arkansas.
There i one thing iu 'which Cairo is
sadly deficient, but which would be a great
help to the social entertainment of the
young people generally. We speak of
clubs. There are. a number of organiza
tions in the city, but none 60 far as we
know whose object it is to relieve the
monotony ot social life during '.he season
when theatrical troupes are enjoying a
holiday. Tue young men and ladies of the
city should have clubs. Clubs for
intellectual improvement, clubs for purely
social amusement, singing clubs, debating
clubs, dancing clubs, reading clubs, feast
ing clubs, sewing clubs, laughing clubs,
gymnastic clubs, and mutual admiration
clubs. The young people's temperance
club, which has furnished much elevating
entertainment to the young and old peo
ple) seems to be on a dccline.which is to be
regretted. The young people should make
extra efforts to infuse new life into it, for
while it furnishes excellent entertain
ment to outside, it also induces its members
to improve their minds in various ways.
It should not be allowed to die.
Peoria Democrat: "The yellow fe
ver has reached Mata morass, Mexico, and
Col. Sola has lost his wife and daughter
with the disease, and he is lying low with
it. The Rio Grande is a long way off from
Illinois, but then we think it high time
that Dr. Rauch should be on the
banks of the Ohio river at
Cairo, with his shot gun, that he may shoot
down tho disease should it attempt to in
vade the sacred soil of Illinois." Needn't
bo alarmed on Cairo's account. Cairo is
one of the cleanest healthiest, towns in the
state, has an active government, a marshal
who, as conservator ot tho peao, board of
health an i practical sin all-pox extermina
tor, is a terror alike to criminals and epi
demics. But if he and his auxilliaries
should waver when tho disease approaches
then wo havo tho Ilalliday guards in re
serve who have but recently passed muster
under the critical eye of Assistent In
spector General Simpson. Cairo is well
fortified and prepared to meet a violent
onslaught of any kind, but especially
--In an article on grapes and the prospects
of a good crop of that delicious fruit in
Southern llliuois this year, tho Anna Farm
er and Fruit Grower says: "Tho grape
that has done the best in our vineyard is
the Perkins. Wo havo 500 vinos of this
variety that hang full of perfectly sound
grapes, not a rotten berry being found yet
among them all. It is a large, quita early,
delicate pink or reddish grape, with
medium clusters, ot good flavor, prolific,
will bear neglect better thau most other
sorts, It is, however, a favorite sort with
the curculio, but owing to its light color,
fools tho birds and small hoys. This is tho
fifth crop they have borne, and they grow
better every year. They flourish in most
any soil and under most any treatment.
To recapitulate, it nrny be said that this
year the Perkins and Elviia have not rotted
at all. Tho Dracut, Noah and Lady havo
rotted but littlo. Tho Delaware, Tele
graph, Goethe, Brighton and Ives havo rot
tod worse. Tho Cottage, Worden, Wilder,
Merrimac snd Moore havo rotted worst
still, Tho Catawba, Champion and Con
cord worst of all."
The cases of tho negro keepers of
up town gambling dens wcro tried in the
court of Magistrate Comings yesterday af
ternoon. Wiley and Catolious pleaded
"not guilty" and were tried, found guilty,
and fined ten doll at s nnd costs. Jenkins
am! Ellis pleaded guilty and were fined
tho Riimu amount. Both thoso parties, this
association of criminals, were found guilty
of tho same offonco before and wcro fined
tho lowest fine permitted by tl o ordinnces.
This was proper enough for the first offence;
but It would snemhat, having proven
themselves to be deliberate, determined,
porsistont vlolaters of law, by being found
guilty a second time, the penalty should
have been heavier. Tbe assessment
of thi lowest flno in every case
every tune will become monotonous
if it continues much Ion rer. The criminals
themselves have already c tuio to look upon
a ten dollar fine with contempt. It is but
a little p utiou of tho revenue derived by
them from th-ir crini"; they pay it will
ingly, becaii ie they look upon it as only a
small percentage of tho profits
of their infamous business, which they
must periodically pay to tho city for the
privii'lge of keeping their dens in full blast
Lt these criminals be shown that a divi
sion of spoils is not all tho city asks as a
condition of their existence; let them bo
shown that iho object of tho criminal law
is not !o connive with criminals for gain,
but to punish thentund to exterminate them.
The assesMiiont of the locsrflne every
time they are found guilty or plead guilty
does not givo them any suspicion of a de
sire on the p at of a court to do ought but
protect them agalnsfthe just penalty pre
scribed to them by law.
It is needless to say that under the
grateful atmospheric conditions we have
had for Bomo weeks the people w ho have
remained in this city havo reason to
congratulate themselves, Last summer they
were happy whocotil 1 get away from the
heat and linger h ng on the seaside and
bathe illimit ibly in tho surf, or lounge on
mountain t"ps coquetting with tho clouds.
But flights of summer wanderers this year
appear rather absurd. Why should they fly
from the most glorious summer weather
Cairo ever exoerionceU No uoed of flight
l ail, unless change of scene is positively
uecesstry and then Dixon Springs "take
the cake." Not even Nahant, Newport and
L"iig Branch have this summer furnished
such a delicious atmosphere as we have had
here No hot nights! Think ot that in
July, when the IiOiiisville or St. Louis or
Chicago citizen is in the habit of roasting
all night iu tint month. The girls have
floated about in their pretty white dressen,
but that is from mere habit, for the white
dress has been a trifle too cool for this July.
They are entrtncing, alluring, but this year
they make one shiver. We hava been
pleased with this July. It has been as
different from what Vennor snid it would
be as a hyena differs from a lamb. People
must not put their trust in the weather seers.
It is well to truid the Signal Service, whose
forecasts are based on scientific principals.
The Signal Service is not empirical. It
goes no farther than science permits, no
farther than exact knowledge permits. No
living man can predict the kind of weather
we shall have tor the next six months.
Vennor says that August w ill be a month
of horrible storms and diluvian rains. Take
no stock in him. He has failed in the past.
The month of July was all emphatic rebuke
to Vennof's presumption.
In defending himself against charges
made against him by Cant. Cowden of one
General Weitzel, Captain James B. Eads
says in a communication to the St. Louis
Republican: "In the Ust part of his let
ter, Gen. Weitzel shows tho cloven foot
beneath the robe of the stint. His so-called
plan for a ship-railway was patented In
bH by a civil engineer in New York
city. The photographs are all on record
in the engineer's office. I reported on the
feasibility of its application to tho falls
of the Ohio some timu in lSflS, I believe.
These are all matters of official record."
The spirit manifested in every lino of the
above indicates that ('apt. Cowden and
Gen. Weitzel are "birds of a feather."
Tho motive which lies back of this attack
upon mo is the same in the case of both.
Cowden is furious because, during the past
session of congress, I exposed an absurd
scheme of his known as tho "Lake Borgne
Canal outlet project. Uen. Weitzel is
chagiined, first, because I defeated his pet
project, tho "Fort St. Philip canal ;"and sec
ond, because, when I was building tho St.
Louis bridge, I ridiculed the recommenda
tion of Gen. Weitzel to. build a canal
around tho Illinois end of 'the bridge,
so that a few steamboats with very
high chimneys might pass through it
instead of under tho arches of the bridge.
If Gen. Weitzel had been as well inlormod
as ho ought to have been, ho would have
known that I never claimed that tho design
or suggestion of a Bhip railway was origin
al with mo. Ou the contrary, I have al
ways spoken of it as of very ancient origin.
If Gen. Weitzel had devoted more time to
reading, and less to Capt. Cowden, ho would
have learned that a ship-railway was used
by the ancient Greeks, ami that Swedenborg
transported several vessels by this means
about 100 years ago, he would also have
learned that twenty-live years ago, IlrunlocH
& Webb,civil engineers, proposed a ship
railway for Suez insteud of tho canal. In
conclusion I distinctly prouounco all asser
tions that 1 havo ever sought to improperly
influence any member of congress or any
public officer lo support measures iu which
I was or am interested fulse and malicious.
ANOTHER NEW INSTITUTION.
At last that large substantial brick
building, known as the Egyptian brewery,
on Ninth street, which has stood idle for so
long, has again been put to some good use
and will bo made to resound aud shiver
with the whir of many revolviug wheels.
The building has been leased for a term of
ten years by Mr. Charles Fair, an expe
rienced, practical machinist, who has been
connected for a uumber ot years with the
machine shops and foundry of Mr. J. B.
Rued. Mr. Fair has already made much
headway iu the new enterprise. lie has
tho steam engine, shafting, bolting, and
much ot tho other machinery already in
position on the first floor iu tho brewery
building, and has a largo force of men hard
at work completing all arrangements up and
down stairs. Ho expects to begin opera
tions next week and to employ constantly
fifteen or twenty men.
Tho demand for machinery aud machine
work at this point is great, us is evident
from tho great increase of capacity recently
made in the establishment of Mr, J. B.
Reed and tho activity of the several other
irou working establishments of tho city,
Mr. Fair's shops will but meet a demand'
which has been constantly growing and
will continue to grow with every year,
with every new industry, every new rail
road, that comes hero. But the demand for
the products of the iron working establish
ments in this city is by no menus confined
to this part of tho country ; it conies from
a wide range of country, extending over
all the surrounding states, and it comes
hero because this point is easy of access
from all directions. The iron workers of
Cairo are already a formidable body of
men, but their numbers is constantly
growing and their business becoming more
"Became Sound and Well."
