in i; to the sale of his fine farm and all its
effects at Jonesboro. Mr. Holden has bem
one of the successful farmers of this coun

der cultivation, and stock and equipments
of fine quality and complete. He has sold
out a large portion of his farm, including
all his stock and fixtures, and will live in
retirement for a while, just for a change.
The old Bulletin building is to be

As appears from the following specials

Feb. 10,3:14 p. m.
Nashville falling very slowly with forty-
one on our gauge.
Bridgeport fallen eight inches since yes
terday. JuliUHonvillc fallen three iuclns
J. K. Knox.
At this point yesterday evening at six
o'clock the river marked nearly forty-six
feet, having risen about two feet during tha
previous thirty hours, or just twenty-one
inches duriug the twenty-four hours ending
at 2 o'clock p. m. yesterday. Since 9
o'clock yesterday morning the rise was at
the rate of only h ilt an lucb per hour.
We venture the bold assertion, without
fear of contradiction, that the rains which
have prevailed throughout the valleys
above us will tend to give us more watir
here than'would have been the case had
there been no rains; but we may say with
equal contideuce, that these rains will not
cause as rapid nor as much of a rise hem
as they did last year. Why! Simply be
cause -there ia but little snow
tho country below and around us, is
1,1 c',inl,;ns'" l" yr, dry, and can
accommodate the rominu- torrents much
accommodate the coming torronts much
more readily than before. This is apparent
here from the fact that the
cunent iu the Kontuckv bottoms,
opposite" Cairo, where last year at
this time thu current was toward
the river, it is now the other way.
The M ssissippis rise at St. Louis will be
barely perceptible here lor several days
yet, and then it can be but nominal, com
paratively speaking. It will have a Hercu
lean task crawling up that msgtiiticient
fiuy-rtir toot embankment of ours on the
Mississippi side. Wo are not over-confi
dent aud would not advise calmness if there
were even any certain prospect of danger;
but wo fail to see any reason whatever for
uueasiness, so long as we have ten feet to
spare on tho Mississippi levee and four on
the Ohio, with the river on a stand at the
nuo and uearly so on tue other.

A MAN OH WOMAN.
Your correspondent "C." says it is not
feaeililc for ladies to manage a charitable
society, but that a mini ah"uld be at the
heart of it, and receive a salary .
It appears to mo that a salary would of
i'm-if absorb about all the spire charitable
means of the community, aud leave us noth
ing to give the poor. Isn't theru ttotne man
in Cairo whose whole time is not occupied
in work who could afford to !ive a few
hours a day to pay out money to the iorf
If this woik uiut be done by a mau (and
I'll not argue they have no right to do it;
couldn't that man he a little crvritablc
I bss'id my confidence in the ability of
Cairo ladies, by the proof they continually
give of the ability itself. They do tbe work
for, and keep together, all tho church soci
eties, Sunday-schools; and all societies for
the moral and mental advancement of the
people. They build up and hold s tcieties
where men fail; and iu this connection it
may not be out of place to refer your rend
ers to their reform work in the temperance
cause. In that, women were first, best,
strongest and last, for they (to their glory
be it said) are at work yet; and in all prob
ability always will be at their post. If "C"
can show wherein women fail in organized
societies fail more than men he will es
tablish good grounds for giving men the
preference when a salary is in Bight.
