Dr. W. R. Smith received a severe fall
from the sidewalk, near the corner of Four

His foot caught under a plank and he
stumbled, and after trying in vain to catch
himself, be fell head foremost to the
ground where he lay unconscious for some
minutes. His face struck upon some hard
substance and cut his nose and cheek bad
ly, but his worst injury was internal. He
was able to be out yesterday morning, how
ever. Io view of the evidence of the truth of
the following item in this weeks Joncsboro
Gazette, furnished by the advertising col
umns of the papers of Cairo, we can not
deny the assertions made in it : "As a non
advertising town Cairo takes the cake, and
aa an advertising town Cheater takes the
cake. Yet there are thoso who persist In
believing Cairo will make a great city, and
some people let on they believe the county

The course taken by the colored peo
pie was a mistake, l neir school rooms
and appointments their teachers and the
grades taught are the same as those of the
other public school, and neither the
white nor colored pupils can elect where
they shall go or when they shall be advanc
ed. This matter is entirely in the hands of
the superintendent, who examines thein aud
assigns them according to their grado to
seats in classes and rooms to which they
belong, and no pupil can assume to take
place until such examination has been pass
ed and their room assigned them.
Mr. Harry Walker has concluded to sup
piemen t the Improvements in his theatre
building, with an entire change of the person
el of the institution. He has given his old
company and band notice that next Monday
they will be expected to make roern f
new performers and musicians, and be will
be staaa manager himself for a while.
Several new music'ans are already here to
tako tho places of those ' who have gone,
and the new performers are on their ways
here from different parts of the country. A
little misunderstanding Mr. Walker had
with the bind on account of the Utter's
failure to play tor the excursionists on the
Three States last Sunday, was partly the
cause of the general change.
The intimation by Elder Ricks that
the colored people will Book to enter the
High school and Thirteenth street school
through the court-house, gives promise of
not only interesting proceedings, but also
of a strong drawing of the color lino in tho
daily affairs of life. It is probable that
the colored people will find a verification
of Mayor Thistle wood's remark to Ihcm
Thursday morning, that the legal way was
thelongest possible way to get anything you
want. But more than all this, these agita
tations, if carried to extremes, will result
finally in the amendment of the school law,
so as to leave no question as to the right ot
school boards to establish separate schools
for the different races. It may be ns well
to take the matter into the courts now as
any other time, in order that the present
law may bo outhoritively interpreted with
reference to the state of things here
Some of the incidents attending the
little disturbsnce in the colorod element
Thursday morning were very srausing and
at the same time revealed considerable cour
age itnd presence of mind in several of tho
lady teachers. Elder Ricks and several col
ored teachers marched into Mrs. Hudson's
room with twenty or thirty colored children
of all ages, told the children to take scats
and iu an authoritative tone requested Mrs.
Hudson that she teach "dose chillun."
The maneuvre was unexpected to Mr.
Hudson, but she was not disturbed much
and cooly asked for the children's certifi
cates from the principal, so that she could
enroll them in tho grades and classes to
which they belonged. "Does you do dat
wid all de chillun?," demanded Elder Ricks
in asomewhat insulting tone. "Certainly,"
replied Mrs. Hudson, "I can receive no
children without a certificate from the
superintendent." "All right den," was the
response, aud the colored brigade marched
quietly down again.
Tho negro saloon-keeper Kionebrew
continues to get into trouble and make
business for the polico officers and courts.
Thursday night two negroes named Dick
Durbin and Clayburn Harris quarreled
over a game of dice in Kinnebrcw's Bahmu,
and the quarrel ended in the shooting of
the former by the latter, the ball entering
and lodging near the left shoulder. Harris
was arrested and lodged in the couuty jail
where he still is. Kionebrew wsb also ar
rested and brought before Magistrate Com
ings yesterday afternoon, charged with
Keeping a disorderly house. A number of
witnesses testified to hearing the noise of
the fraces above referred to, but the defend
ant proved that he made all reasonable
effort to prevent it, and he was discharged.
Another warrant was immediately sworn
out, charging him with keeping a gambling
house, and he will be tried on this charge
The Posey Banner, of Mt. Vernon,
Ind., fills oce of its pages this week with
an almost continuous, wild eulogy of Mt.
Vernon as the one city on the lower Ohio
which was entirely uninjured by the late
flood. The Banner had certainly not heard
of Cairo, or it would not havo made this as
sertion ; but it says "there are at lesst two
other towns on the lower Ohio, that are as
high or higher above the flood point than
Evaosville, viz: Henderson and Rockport,"
From all of which we conclude as follows:
Evansville was flooded, Evansville is too
low; Mt. Vernon, Rockport and Henderson
are higher thau Evansville and were not
flooded, but, though they arc old t wns,
they are small towns and commercially
deads town, ergo, Mt. Vernon, Rockport and
Henderson are too high; Cairo was not
flooded and is a large, live, prosperous city
with some of the largest manufacturing es
tablishments in the country and the best of
prospects for the future, therefore Cairo
must be ueither too high nor too low, but
just on the proper level for a great manu
facturing and commercial city. As some
one remarked casually yesterday, Cairo
only regrets that alio didn't have a foot
more water and Wigginses storm at the
same time; then she would have shown the
world how to fight a flood and would have
gaiued laurels of which Bho could havo brag
ged without blushing.
According to the understanding, some
of the colored folks headed by Elder Kicks
and suveral other men, and followed by sev
eral dozen children, wcut to tho High
school building yesterday morning to be in-
f... ...... 1 H..-I1.. I .......
luiiuvu unnuy wncuior or not Uie children
wouiu oe permitted to attend school in the
buildiugs of tho whito people. Tho party
remained outside of the school premises
and Elder Ricks advanced to the school
entrance where he was met by Prof. Clark.
The elder wished to know if the Prof.
would receive the colored children iuto tho
High school and was told that, if it were
insisted upon, they would bo admitted tor
examination juit ns any Btrrjie children
would be examined, and then asiuued to
the classes to which they belonged and to
the rooms In which such classva were be
ing taught. Tho Elder asked if tha Prof.'
would assign the colored children to classes
in rooms of the white schools and was told
that they , would be asulgued.
the rooms aud uuder the teachers
where under the arrangement of the schools
they belonged. Eldor Ricks then left
with the rcmsrk, laughingly made, that the
superintendent would be called upon to
answer at the bar of justice for his refusal
to admit tho colored children to the white
schools, Iq ono of tho rooms of the Thir
teenth street school about a dozen women
and children took seats and remained nn
til informed of the action ot the others at
the High school, when they left quietly.
The colored school baa bcon open during
all this time, teachers at their posts, fires
in tho stoves, dry floors, good walks, but

The complaint by the colored people
that their schools Are not graded as the
white schools are, is not well founded. A
comparison between these schools shows that
the grades are the samo bo far aa the intel
lectual compacity of the colored children
will permit it to be. First and second
reader classes are taught in the rooms of
Misses Armstrong, Hotchkiss in the white
schools, and by Miss Reed in the colored
schools. Third reader, spelling, Roram
notation, oral geography, etc., in the rooms
of Misses Whitacre, Burton, Sbeppard in the
white schools, and by Miss Duggett in the
colored schools. The Fourth grade is
taught by Misses Whitacre and Burton at
the High school; by Mr. Baily at the col
ored school and by Miss Mollie Riley at the
Thirteenth street school. This grade alone
is taught by one teacher in the colored
schools, while in the white schools the
same teacher has charge of this and seve ral
o:hers besides. In this iost ince, therefore,
the colored schorl haR tho advantage over
the white. In the white schools the Fifth
an Sixth gradrs are taught; in the colored,
the Fifth antl Seventh. The Sixth is not
taught in the colored schools because there
are no scholars qualified lor this grade
they are either not far enough advanced for
this grade, or they are qualified for the Sev
enth grade into which they are admitted.
The reason of this break is, that for several
months last year the colored children did
not attend school at all, although their
school was open, teachers all at their posts
and fires built every morning, and when
they finally resumed their studies it was
found that they had retrogarded. To this
interruption in attondance and to irregular
attendance generally, is cbargable, in a
great measure, the fact that the colored
children did not advance more rapidly, in
their studies. And in view of the fact that
there are no scholars in the colored schools
qualified for the Sixth grade; and less than
a dozen who come once in a while to pursue
the studies of the Seventh grade, the de
mand for a High school department in the
colored schools, made in the recent petition
to the board, seems very ridiculous. But
to compare the advancement made by col
ored children with that of the white chil
dren, and then to blame the difference
which is, of course, against the former,
upon the school board and the teachers
and conditions of the colored school, is still
more ridiculous and unjust. To expect
that colored children as a whole, with their
generally rude surroundings and mode ot
life and influences at home, with no assist
ance and but little if any urging from their
parents, should advance as rapidly in their
studies at school as do white
children, who are as much or
more, "in school" at home than
they are when in their seats at the school-
house, is extremely unreasonable. That
colored parents are not able to give their
children and the teachers, the assistance
that white parents give their children and
their teachers, is not the fault of the school
board or the teachers, and therefore the
comparatively slow progress of the colored
school children, which is the natural result
of such inability, is chargable to their
