Mr. Cyrus Close was in Carbjndale

tongue and stopped them.
Wiggins' storm is yet in the future if it
comes at all. There were brisk and high
winds st a dozen places during the twenty-
four hours ending yesterday evening, but
none could be called storms. Twenty-eight
miles per hour was the highest. Very light
rain was reported from Cincinnati, Keokuk,
and Louisville. The barometer was gen

slightly at most points beard from.

Friday night officers Martin and Tyler
made a raid on Kinncbrcw's gambling es
tablishment and captured several gambling
women snd the bar-keeper, Lace Hamilton,
in the act of superintending a game of dice,
having in his possession a box with chips,
dice, money and in his pocket a revolver.
The wbolo capture was brought into Mag
istrate Comings court yesterday, One of
the women was fined ten dollars and costs
the other five and costs; Hamilton wss-fined
twenty-five and costs for carrying a weapon
which scared him and he took a change of
venue to Justice Robinson, where he plea
ded guilty to gambling and was fined fif
teen dollars and costs. This is the second
time within six weeks now that this dis
reputable negro has been fined for gam
bling and keeping a gambling den. The
officers are anxious to get rid of him and it
is to be hoped they will soon succeed. Ho
was sent to jail yesterday in default of the
payment of his fine.
Monday eveuing the 13th inst. there
will be a meeting of citizens in the Baptist
chnrch, for the purpose of organizing an
association with a view to opening "Free
Reading Rooms" for the use of the young
men of our city. The liberal action of the
Illinois Central railroad ought to inspire
the business men of Cairo with zeal in this
matter, and it is hoped our citizens will take
hold of it in a proper spirit, let there be a
large gathering on Monday evening.
To-day at 4:30 p. m, a gospel sermon
will be held in the Baptist church under
tho auspices of the Y. M. C. A. While
this meeting is assigned especially tor
railroad men, it is hoped that as many oth
ers (is possible will attend. In the evening
a union meeting will be held in the Baptist
church ; all our citizens are invited to be
present. Mr. F. A. Hatch, general secre
tary of the Y. M. C. A. will address the
meeting on associat'on work an! will not
fail to interest all.
The pith and point of a conversation
between Elder Ricks and a Bulletin rep
resentative is that the colored people want
larger and higher ground for their school,
a large school-house, more teachers snd
better ones, higher grades taught snd a
Fligh school grade added. Tbey want
these conditions established for themselves,
aeperato from the whites if they can get
them, but if they can not have them that
way, they will take them where they cm
find them, by force of law if need be.
A little fire occurredyesterJay sftern on
about 8 o'clock in the house on Eleventh
street, back of Walnut, occupied by Mrs.
Chftrlei Arter. The fire was discovered
before it hid made much headway. Sev
eral neighbors mounted adjoining build
ings and threw water on the roof; but Mr.
N. A. Devore climbed into the attic window
and extinguished the fire with several
buckets of waler before the fire department
arrived. Very little damage was done.
The origin of fire is somewhat of a mystery,
as it was not in close proximity to any
Pulaski Patriot: "A very distressing
affair occurred near Villa Ridge, on Tues
day last, which resulted in the death of
Mr. Peter Lentz, aged 25 years. Deceased
was preparing to clean a gun snd to find
out whether it was loaded, he placed bis
foot on the hammer and blew into the muz
zle, bis toot slipped and the gnn was dis
charged the whole charge entered bis head
killing him instantly. At the time the ac
cident happened he was in the same room
itn his wife, who was sick in bed and un
able to rise, and could give no alarm. Some
one entering the. room shortly afterward
was the first to discover that any thing was
wrong. Mr. Jntz was a son-in-law of
Jsmes Curry, snd leaves a wife and two
children to mourn his death."
-About six o'clock last night a white
man rushed madly down Ohio levee and
onto one of the wharfboats, and was making
straight for the river, when a colored man
caught him by the coat-tail and held him
bick. The man struggled violently to ie
lease himself and to gain the outer guard
of the boat, but the colored man held on
and called for assistance. Assistance came
in the person of a young man stopping at
The Halli lay, who was something of a
physician. The madman was taken np
the levee and down to the Illinois Central
depot, where, by vigorous treatment from
the young stranger, he was restored to his
sennas as far as possible and turned over to
Officer Tyler who had como in obedience to
a summon. The man was suffering from a
severe attack of delerium tremens And
would rertainly have been drowned but
for the prompt action of the colored man
on the wharf. He was a stranger in town
aud sometiiiog further will probably be
learned about him to-morrow iu one of the
courts to which he will probably be
brought on a charge ot drunkenness.
-In acknowledgement of the receipt of
the donations from Cairo and other points,
the Shawnee News stys: "The committee
to distribute relief rations has received
donations fr m a number of sources since
our last, aud in their behalf also in the
name of our whole people, wo extend to all
the thanks so richly their due, It is im
possible to enumerate." Of the condition
of thiugs in Sliswneetown tint the flood
was gone dowu tho News says: "The busi-siue-s
streets are now out of water, and
ever sinco Saturday afternoon tho work of
cleaning out and preparing for a rencwul
of business upon first floors has been in
progress. The departure of the water re
reals the worst statu of affairs imaginable
much more damage having been dono
than Was supposed. The uopreceodonted
current has proven more severe than vyit
ever known, and seems to have- omitted
nothing in its work of demolition. In the
myriad of destructive leathers and the gen
eral wreck of everything that was within
reach, It would by folly to attempt an
enumeration of losses. Though suttorlng
severely, our merchants and business men
generally have gone to work with a lauda
ble will to make the most of the hereafter,
and wipe out as speedly aa possible all
traces of the terrible past.

She was warmly received on Monday night,
and cartied off many floral gifts. The L ird
Rochester of C. G. Craig was at times stilt

was very effective. Maud Mowbray made
a very good Mrs. Reed, Jane's cruel aunt.
J. L. Wooderson was a little too heavy for
the bad-boy, John, in the prologue; but be
kept the gallery in good humor by his
mske-up and business as the flunkey in the
succeeding acts. "Jane Fyre' will remain

A committee of colored gentlemen
called upon Messrs. Mulkey & Leek Fri
day to enquire if those gentlemen would
undertake the prosecution of the case of
the colored agitator against the school
board, for tho hitter's failure to admit the
colored children into the buildings of the
white children. The committee wbb given
to understand upon what terms the case
would be undertaken and they departed to
report the result of their visit to a mass
meeting of colored people which Elder
Rix informs in will be held soon. At this
meeting the next step will be decided upon
and if they conclude to invuke the aid if
the Isw snd follow their usual course when
in need of money tor airy enterprise, they
will send committees with subscription
papers out among the white people, to col
lect the money necessary for the prosecu
tion of their case. And tho white noi-ple
will respond liberally, as they always do.

Dongola, March 5th, 1883.
The days are lengthening out and the
vernal equireas cometb apace, so that our
bar ly sods of the son are getting ready for
the spring aud summer campaign fur anoth
er crop. A few have already started their
plows and many have made gardens on a
small scale, such as sowing lsttuce seed,
planting radish seed, etc. After the long
and severe winters of '82 and 83, those liv
ing on high lands feel joyous and hopeful
for the future, but not so those living in
river towns and on river bottom farms.
The floods have drowned them out, wash
ing away all their' property and leaving
them in a pitiful condition. ' May we not
hope that a generous hearted public will
fly to their relief with ample means to ward
off much suffering. Cairo God bles her
libs withstood the mighty shock of waters
that threatened to exterminate her, and her
generous hearted citizens are contributing
menus for tho relief of some o( her less
fortunate sister cities. After all the croak
ing about Cairo's unstable location, she has
twice within twelve months, proved that
she is the most stable city on the Ohio
rivr-r. Well done for Cairo; "Long may
sbe wave," grow and cularged her boarders
till she becomes a city second to none on
the river. May she never, like the Anna
Advocate, become defunct. One of Bon
tan's mules, says the "Anna Advocste is
defunct; peace to its ashes." This thick
beaded mule further auid in Tom's Gazette,
"fa r legitimate opposition in political
newspapers is not by any means undesira
ble; but a newspaper conducted without
ability, devoted to merely to tho interest of
a parly, unreliable in every respeel, striving
ni'r to produce discord iu tho opposing
l'i ly than to urge the claims and aJvauta
gwif its owner, is a nuisance, beyond le
seription." "Nuf ccd." Old Trim wants
its distinctly umicrsbMid that ho is a Re

piity of which this mule speaks through

it comes to penny a lino writer, pitching
into a party tho latche'. of whoso shoes be

yet she retains her youthful appearance
