Thursday Col. Carey, of Washington,
wss In the city. He is paymaster of the
United States army and came here in ac
cordance with instructions from the wur
department, to distribute a snug sum of
money among seven or eight persons who
are entitled to pensions on account of army
services. Col. Carey had his headquarters
in tho custom-house and those entitled to
the money flocked, each accompanied by a
dozen or more friends to identify him orlier.
Tho beneficiaries were all negroes. The
least amount paid out was $7 and somo
cents; the highest amount was $360, to an
agid colored woman whose husband had
died in the ranks. In six months tho pay
master will be around again to go through
the same routine. He went from here to
other southern Illinois towns, from whence
he goes to St. Louis and Cape Girardeau.
An old colored man named Anderson,
a U.S. pensioner, living in Jackson, Tenn.,
complained to Chief Myers last evening
that he had been robbed of one hundred
dollars in this wise: A nicely dressed,
smooth-tongued young negro had formed
his acquaintance in Jackson and told him
to come to Cairo and he would get a three
thousand dollar back pension lor him.
Anderson believed the oily-tongued sharp
er and accompanied him here. Upon their
arrival here the sharper asked Anderson for
$100, saying that he needed this amount in
order to get the papers, etc., for the $3,000
in proper shape and get the matter before
the proper officers. Anderson handed ove r
the $100 to the scoundrel, who left the
old negro in a down-town restaurant, and
has not been seen or heard of since. Tho
sharper wore a light, checkered coat and
was well dressed from head to foot, which
stamped him as a professional confidence

big as a chair cushion, and this
morning I took the sponge and
filled it with warm water, and
took the feather cushion out of the

sponge in its place, and covered it over
with the cushion cover, and when we all
got set down to tho table pa come in and
set down to to tho table and sat on It to
ask a blessing. He started in by closing
bis eyes and placing his hands up in front
ot him like a lotter V, aud then he began
to ask that the food we were about to par
take of be blessed and then he was going
on to ask that all of us be made to see the

on his pistol pocket, as though ho would

Dear Sib: In your issue of yesterday,
your local ed. gave with malice prepense a
misstatement of a foot race between Alder
man McIIale and Coroner Fitzgerald. Now,
sir, I give you a true account ot said racs.
The alderman and coroner were standing
in the middle ot Washington avenue, south
of the court house, and when they were
about to separate, the alderman challenged
the coroner to a foot race to Col. Taylor's
office. Now, the alderman is six feet two
inches when erect on his walking beams,
and weighs about one hundred and seventy
pounds, with all the attachments to his
running gear in first-rate order. While the
coroner is only five feet uine inches and
weighs two hundred and ten pounds and
two glasses of beer for ballast, short run
iiing gear and corpulent. Yet, notwith
standing all the disadvantages, tbe coroner
accepted tbe challenge aud both started.
The coroner ran like ono who possessed seven
league boots, or with the speed of "Pegasus"
and be left tho alderman so far behind, that
they were both running alone; and the
coroner, feeling lonely, faced about and
came runniug back in search of the alder
man and then and there the race ended.
The alderman was vanquished. The coro
ner did not know his own "great" speod un

"Why, that dog looks like ft good

The descendant of an ancient line of
Irish kings drew himself up and a look
of pity stolo across his faoe.
"Good dog? He's a bloody aristocrat,
an' he's been tho bane of mo life fur the
last foivo days." Ho gavo the string a
vicious jerk ftiid continued: "I came
homo from me work a few days sinco,
mid mo wife says: 'Faith an' look at the
ptirty creature we've got for Toddy to
play wid.' At supper I gave him an in
telligent piece of stake, an' yea Will
