We have examined a specimen copy
it the history of Efflogbam county, gotten
up by the same publishers who sre now en
gaged in preparing the matter for the his
tory of Alexander county. It is a volume
of over nix hundred pages, neatl7 and sub
stantially bound, printed in large, clear
type, written in an attractive style, end giv
ing, not only the particulars in full of every
important event in the history of the coun

steel engravings of the loading spirits of
the times and events of which the history
treats. The book for Alexander county
would be a valuable addition to every

-Col. Chas. Hamilton, superintendent of
St. Louis and Cairo railroad, was in the city
yestcniHyiu accordance with direction from
President Whitehouse. The object of Col.
Hamilton's visit was a conference with the
council committee having in charge tho
matter of settling the differences between
the city and tho railroad company, as to the
latter's entrance into the city. The con
ference was had, Mayor-elect Halliday and
Aldeimon Hughes and Blake representing
tho council committee. All points of im
portance were discussed at some length.
The couferencu was a vory agreeable one
throughout. It was finally agreed upon
that Col, Hamilton should make certain
recommendations to President Whitehouso
which the Col. expressed a perfect willing-'
nossto do, bolieviug thorn to bo entirely
just to all parties concerned ; and it is un
derstood that if President Whltehoum will
FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL
make a proposition based upon and in
accord with those recommendations, it will
be promptly accepted by the city council
and all trouble will be at once at an end.
This bappj solution of tho narrow
gauge problem is devoutly to
bo wished for.Col. Hamitou atd
Mayor-elect Halliday took a drive
out to the Mississippi levee and viewed the
situation, and from the views expressed by
the former at the - subsequent coufereuce
it is certain that, if the Col. had been au
thorized to act for the company, all differ
ences would have been settled then and
there. But tbe Col. bad to submit the whole
matter again to the president and this will
cause a little further delay.
A negro stole a pair of pants from the
clothing store of Mr. Sadler, on Commer
cial avenue, about a week ago,' and suc
ceeded in eluding the officers at the time.
But a shsrp lookout was kept for the
pants, and yesterday morning Officers
Martin sod Mahanny recognized them on a
young black fellow who was leisurely wan
dering about the post-office square. Tbey
arrested the negro snd accused him of the
theft; but he swore that ho bought the gar
ment from another negro whom he ''guve
away" to the officers. Asnisted by the
wearer of the stolen pants the officers then
went in search of the real thief anJ foun d
him in the lower portion ot the city. The
thief will be examined to-day. The pants
were worth about (7 when new.
It took five coaches and a baggage
car to take tbe Cairo delegation of O ld
Fellows to Jonesboro yesterday. There
wrre about three hundred poopte in all,
men, women and children, all in holiday
attire. Uniforms were not worn, as no
procession could be formed. The Cairo
City band accompanied the excursion and
made some fine music on its way to tbe
train. The party did not return until about
nine o'clock last night, but all seemed t
be well pleaded with the trip. Anna and
Jonesboro are beautiful little plates this
time of year when all nature begins to
blossom in rich colors. While tbe desti
nation of the (.arty was Jonesboro, mauy
spent most of their time in Anns, inspect
ing the asylum, etc.
' Wednesday night The Halliday
Guards met at tbe armory in regular drill
meeting. Captain Waldron was on hand
as usual to put the boys through their ex
ercises tor the last time, until probably
next tall, when he will return from Mem
phis to where he will now go, to resume
operations with the cotton compress here.
Captain Waldron proceeded with tho exer
cises as usual Wednesday night, not sus
pecting that anything unusul would occur,
but when he was about to dismias the boys,
one of tbem, Mr. June, stepped forward
and with a tew appropriate words, presen
ted tbe Captain a beautiful gold headed
cane, on behalf of tbe company and in
token of their appreciation of tbe captain s
constant and valuable efforts as their drdl
master. Captain Waldron, though cur
prised, received tbe present gracefully in a
nest little speech. Tbe cane was purcha.-ed
from Mr. E. A. Buder and was appropri
- Mr. W. T. Scott and Judge J. J. Bird
snd Mr. Alex. Leonard, and other leaders
of tbe southern Illinois colored Republi
cans, are not alone in their determination
to compel recognition from the whito
bosses of their party, by acting indepen
dently for themselves at future elections.
It begins to look as if tbe negroes were get
ting their backs up in earnest, and that
tbey intend to make trouble for the Re
publicans. A short time ago a prominent
colored writer of the south said the day bad
passed when Republican strikers could
drive negroes to the polls like cattle and
vote them, and at the Emancipation day
celebration at Washington, Fred. Douglas,
who has always stood by tbe "grand old
party," said : "If I am not mistaken in
reading the signs of the times, the negro
vote is going to be an important element in
turning the political scales."
Metropolis Democrat: Today Capt.
Wm. Johnson starts from this point to
Wetaug to make a reconnoisanre of the
country between the two points, in order
to acquaint himself as thoroughly as pos
sible with its topography, preliminary to a
careful survey of the line of the Wetaug
& Metropolis railroad the survey proper,
will be made from Wetaug to Metropolis.
In connection we may say that Hon. Wm.
H. Green, of Cairo, and Col. Wm. R.
Brown, of this city, have just returned
from New drlcans where they went to bold
a conference with President Clark, of tho
New Orleans & Chicago railroad with tbe
view of securing the ce-operation nf that
great corporation in the building of the
new line. Our information is that tho
gentleman gave a favorite response to tlio
requests and inquiries of Messrs. Green and
Brown and that ho further promised to
visit Metropolis next month to see for him
self what inducements are offered in tbe
way of business for the road when com Die
ted. By that time the preliminary survey
will have been completed and a more in
telligent and comprehensive view of the
matter can be arrived at.
