Early yesterday morning a little shanty
near tbe Mississippi leveo and Twelfth

A fall of the thermometer and a heavy
one occurred at every point reported from
iu yesterday evening's bulletin. At His
marck the fall was 8, leaving the theimom

The floral decurations for tbe casket in
tinch tbe remains of Captain Hambleton
were laid were furnished by Mr. Joseph
McCullougb, of bt. Louis, tnd were proba
bly the richest and most beautiful used for
any like occasion. The chief features of
them was tbe floral cythe and a sheath cf
wheat at the foot of the coffin, a cross
and crown at the centre, and tbe colu.un
and harp mentioned elsewhere. The harp
was mounted on a pdestrial which bore
a suggestive inscription of pinsies. There
were a number of St. L)uisans in tbe cor
ege. Tbe time is rapidly drawing tear for
tho grand event of the se 'n Tne Mystic
Krew Masquerade Ball on Mardi Gro?.
Judging from present indications it will
be the largest affair of the kind that has
ever been in Cairo. The ball is now all
the talk and some immense costumes are in
course of preparation for the event. If you
do not desire to mask g' unmasked and
view the motly throng that will be iu atten
dance. Valeutines are already making their
appearance upon tho couaters of our busi
ness men and the 1 4 . li inntant, St. Valen
tine's day, is but two weeks bence. The
custom of sending little tokenaof friend
ship and affection is a very pleasant one
and ought to be encouraged; butJtbe habit
of a few to make it the means of showing
spite or anger is mean and narrow and ought
to be discouraged. If you cLt send a
valentine that will bring a plf ht smile
) the recipient' face or a hap, thought
to his or her mind, don't Bend any and thus
lo good by refraining from bad.
Tho officers are on the track of tbe
perpetrator of tho Coleman and Schuli
burglary. He is a yovng fellow who, with
his brother w ho is a news-boy, has l een
lounging around Mr. Coleman's book store
for some time. Money which he epent at
different places in tho city has been recog
nized by Messrs. Coleman and Schuh. He
left on the tteamer Gu9 Fow'.er Tuesday
evening for Pa iueali wber'j he has rela
tives living. Chief Myers worked up tbe
case, and telegraphed to Marshal Geary at
aducah yesterday afternoon, asking him
to arrest the youug fellow who is known
here as George Harris. Circumstances
seem to leave no doubt of Brannon's guilt.

"The education of girls" is a subject
that mothers arc in no danger of consider
ing too carefully. In a lecture on this top.
ic, Prof. Woodward of St. Louis, said truly
that the future of our country depends as
much upon the girls as upon tbe boys, and
he urges that iu addition to the necessary
studies they shall bo taught the uso of the
needle, the pencil, the brush and of hand
tools. "Cut out the. useless tako un the
u-eful studies and make our women strong,
self-reliant, useful women. Educate broad
and deeply; make them physicians. Let
them sit at the feet of our best teachers,
but let them not err as the men have, and
let their curiculutn be not merely ornament
al." It is true, as (he Professor says, that
the terms are too long, and tho sessions are
too long and tiresome; the hours of study
are too long and there are too many sub
"Interviews, or Bright Bohemian," is a
bright, sparkling comedy written by Mr.
Nobles, and embodies true humor, amus
ing dialogues and situations, catching the
audience at once and retaining its interest
throughout the entire presentation. At no
tiilio does the plot trespass upon the prov
ince of improbability and there is not a
single lino in the entire piece which could
have tho slightest tendency toward shock
iogthe seuMbilityof anyone. Tho therky
but ever gentlemanly, enterprising and
self-possessed Bohemian is painted with
the pen of a master whose inspiration is
evideutly drawn from actual scenes wit
nessed within tho mysterious preciucts of
the editorial sanctum.

Two negro women had a lively tussel
in a down town sbauty lues lay night
which aroused tbe neighborhood for some
distauce around. They had both been

until he wr.s just tipsy enough to be liberal,
and to feel insu ted if his liberality were not
appreciated. He offered his companion a
drink, but he refused, which angered the
kiud doner and caused him to uso lan
guage that led to a fight. A go-as-you-
please rumpus was in lulged in for sime
minutes but not much damage was done to
the physiognomy of either of the con
testants. Hostilities ceased by mutual cou
nt before officei s or watchman became
cogn:rmtof them, and the only manner
io which tbe particulars of the battle were
made known to others than tbe contestants
themselves was through the -crowing of
one ol them yesterday which nearly led
to another fight on the levee.
Tbe late Captain Uambleton's funeral
yesterday was one of the most imposing
that lias ever occurred here. The remains
arrived hero from Mound City a few min
utes before 1 o'clock, by special train of
three coaches, all crowded with the Mound
City friends of djc2as:d. The train drew
slowly up t a the Union d.-pot where Cairo
Lodge, No. 237, A. F. and A. M., in uni
form, aa l a Urge number of other citizms,
awaited it. After a few moments duly the
coffin was brought forth, in charge of Cairo
Lodge, No. 2J7. It was an elegant metal-
ic ca-ket, with heavy silver handles along
the s; its and at tbe ends, and the lid was
covered witn fl iral ornaments. It whs
citriel by eight p il'-bearers, proceeded by
verl members of .Mound City Lodge, who
cinieil some beautiful devices of creetia
aud flowers. O.ie of these was a colump
of evergrjens andfljwers, surrn auated by a
white dove, another a harp composed of
tbesmie. Immediately after the casket
came the members of Cairo Ladwe aud
these were followed by tho Mound
City friends of deceased and
several huudref Cairo friends brought up
tbe roar. Tho piocesiion moved up Fourth
street to tho Illinois Central depot, where
five coaches and tw baggage cars waited
to convey them to B iech Grove cemetary.
Tlie c.isket and pill-be irers occupied ono
of the baggage cars by themselves and the
live conches were nil filled with people.
The traiu left about 1 :15 o'clock. At
Mound City services had been held over
tbe H mains in tbe Methodist church; and
at the cemetary the service was conducted
by Cairo Blue Lodge, according to the Im
pressive frms of that organization. Tho
train returned 'about U:30 o'clock and the

PHEPAHl.NO A BILL.
Waphinoton, Jan. 30. Tho house com
mittee is miking good progress witb tbe
preparation of the river aud harbor bill
Tbe bill will probiby appropriate about
$7,000,000 for continuing improvements;
of this amount $2,5000,000 will be aligned
to the Mississippi river. At loait that is
the present iuteution ot the committee.
Caiits's prospects for a rich buaiuesi
harvest next spring are very flattering to
say the least and there has been a good
trade hero during tbe winter; but, iu tbe
words of the Spriugfleld Register, it is
puzzling many newspapers readers to ac
count for the languor iu trade, decreasing
exchanges, aud iucruaaiug bankruptcies In
the country generally while thu general
condition of the country is sound, and io
many respects apparently flourishing. Tbe
trouble is uot because tho conditions are
not good for prosperous tradn, for thoy aro.
There were good harvests last year, north
and south, and a largo and wealthy immi
gration. The real causo for the depression
In trado Is that the floating wealth of the
country has been reduced, aud that which
was productive capital has becomo fixed.
A thousand miles of railroad a month, at
$20,000 a nillo could not bo built without
reducing thu floating wealth. Tbil money
is not lost but It has become available
only as thu roads produce profits, and
this many of the roads are not yet doing.
Again tho heavy tariff aud internal revenue
taxation of the general government has
thrown vast sums of money into the vaults
of. the federal treasury where it lies idle;
the largp amouut of money produced by
taxation lying in state treasuries also takes
it out of trade; tho tariff besides lias de
prived us of our shipping aud deceased our
foreign trade. The result Ins been a low
ering of prices which disposes tradesmen
to lay iu stocks that might have to be sold
for less than they c t; and what is worse
these causes have produced an inability or
Indisposition on the part of consumers to
buy liberally. It becomes the duty of the
people's representative iu congress and in
the legislatures of the states, therefore, to
reduce tax Uion, and thus lighten tho bur
bens of the people. If this is d me trade
will again becomo brisk an l business men
