Cotton-seed oil is said to bo largely

An interesting row occurred yesterday
morning in the old Hibernian engine-house,
on Thirteenth street, in which three negro
women and one man were
actively ciiLraL'ed. One woman
held another while another slashed her in

Cleverer men than those who passed
gilded new nickels as five-dollar gold
pieces have manufactured a so much more

on the coin is but forty-seven cents, as it

Some time ai;o Sergeant W. II. Ray
made npplicition to the chief signal officer
for a change of location. He decided to
be 'ransf. uc I to Cincinnati where his own
aa I hii wife's relatives live. A few days
a:o he received reply that his wish as to the
location c ml 1 n it be complied with, as a
chang! had ben but recently made in the
Cincinnati ofli-e; but that before long he
would be oiveii a new station further north
than v,,;. It is to be hoped that Cairo
will not suffer by thu chanou. Mr. Ray

-In the report of the chief signal officer
at VYa-hiiigtoii, lor the year 1881, just issu-
e I, it is sta'e l that in that year, at this
point, navigation mi the Mississippi river
closed D'Tetnbcr 27th and was resumed
March 11th. Without furtber'explanation
one would un lerstand by this, that during
the peiiod of tune included by the dates
given, there was no navigation possible
from this point, which would be erroneous
us neai ly everyone hero knows. The mean
ing intended to be conveye I is that naviga
tion on the Mississippi from Cairo up was
closed, not from Cairo down. From Cairo
down il is never ( lowd and this Is one of tho
peculiar mid very important natural advan
tages ol which Cairo justly boasts.
A very distructivu fire occurred at
Wickiiffc night before lust about 12
o'clock, in which live or six Iiouhoh in tho
principal part of this town wero ra.ed to
the ground. Tho firo started in a house
s -vcral lots below Tho Hallidav No. 2. and
burned southward until nearly every houso
on tiie one principal struct wan destroyed.
The houses wero owned by T. P. Clark, W.
M. Sparks, a Mr. Hughes, W. II. Jones am:
others. Mr. Clark's was a residence.
Messrs. Hughes and Sparks had stocks of
groceries ami dry goods in their houses,
and Mr. Jones had the drug store. Tho of.
(ice of the "Wickliffe Plaindealcr" was also
burned. No very reliable particulars
could bo obtained yesterday. Tho stocks
were reported to bo also nearly all destroy
ed. Tho red glare of the big fire was re
necieu on mo nico oi tne smootn river
clear to this city and those who were out on
the street say it was a magniflcant sight,
The only alarm given was the blowing of
an engine w histlo at Wickliffe, w hich was
faintly heard here.
News has reached here that our late
states attorney is now waiter in tho Hot
Springs hotel, at Lis Vegas, New Mexico;
nnd that the story he has told there, of the
reason of his departure from here, is, that
the county officials hern are ad corrupt
all defaulters; th it he was about to expose
their guilt and bring them to justice when
they all connived against him, trumped up
cnarges oi uisnonesiv against mm in las
oUicial capacity, and, having the judical
branch of the county government all under
their control, were about to succeed in hav
ing him convicted of the false charges w hen
he thought it wise to comply with thoir re
quest to leave, and he le't. This informa
tion comes to a citizen here troin a friend
in Las Vegas.
Cincinnati possesses a valuable old citi
zen of Afiican origin, who has made him
self comfortable in the decline of life by
"tailing on" to the building operations of
Cincinnati's successful pig-stickers. Wlieie
ever a wealthy man bought a lot on which
to rear his palace the now venerable Uncle
Tom at once bought a strip adjoining. He
was the nio.st neighborly old African yet
heard from. By the time his cabin was
built and houe-kecping operations fairly
betun the lord of the palace
was ulvvays seiz 'd with a yearning to pos
sess that strip of laud, and the colored
brother generally got his own price. In
St. L: uis it is fabled that the livery stable
fieud propers by similarly observing the
drift of the real estate market.
The Egyptian Mills were started up
again Monduy or Tuesday and have been
running nearly every day since. An in
spector has been sent here, by the firm that
furnUhed the new machinery with which
the mills have been supplied, and he is go
ing through the mills to Bee that every part
works as it should. Messrs. HnlliOay Bros.
have been to considerable expense to furn
ish the mill with the new process machin
ery, but they usually make it a point to
have the best there is and to keep up with
the tunes regardless f expense. Their
flour mill is now one of the completcst ami
finest in the West. By its new machinery
it will be able to cnnipete with the largest
instiiutions of its kind in the country in re
spect to the (pnility of its flour, and its ca
picity is gienttr than it was before.
- "Tax payer" in lust evening's Argus
undertakes to set The Bulletin right on
the ci uuty road qije-tion. He claims that
the ex'eiitiouof thccciiiuty ro.ad t the hills
in Pulaski coun'y, to improve which The
Bn.i.KTis has been urging the raising of
$1,000, his been open all the time and in
constant U-c. But "Tsx-payer" is in error.
He his a huge beam in each eye and yet
Would pluck an imaginary splinter out of
The Bulletin's optic. He refers to a
piece of road entirely different from that of
which The Bulletin anil Mr. Dougherty
spoke. He refers t a mile and a quarter
stretch of road lying between the iron
bridge and the Mound City and Mounds
Junction road, while Tun Bui.lktin refer
red to a continuation of this stretch of road
in a straight line, from the Mounds Junc
tion road clear to the hills. All that "Tax
payer" said about tho piece of road he re
ferred to is probably true, but "Tax-payer"
will probably now comprehend that he hail
the wrong ov by the caudle appendage.
"Tax-payer" needs only to travel a little
further away from homo than he evidently
has done in order tocatch the drift of our
rental ks and tho animal to which we had
--Another stormy meeting of the board
of managers of the Widow's and Orphan's
Mutual Aid Society was held at the office
of Mr. Thomas LewiB last night. The com
mittee appointed to consult an attorney, as
to whether the term of the secretary ex
p'ued with the other officers, eveiy year, re
ported that the attorney's opinion was that
it did, ami the board thereupon started to
proceed with the election of a new secre
tary. But before they had proceeded very
far, the question ol proxies arose again.
Mr. Lewis held several proxies from mem
bers of tin: board who were absent, which
ho desired to vote. Objection was made
and a warm discussion took plnco between
a number of members pro ond con. A
committee was appointed to examine and
repoit upon tl.u proxies present and wdio
was authorized to vote them. The com
mittee reported seven or eight proxies.
But pending a motion to receive the report
and discharge tho committee, the chair de
cided, that as the constitution provides that
proxies, to be med, must have been tiled
with tho secretary ten days before tho
meeting at which they are to bu used, and
as those proxies had not been so tiled, they
could not bo ujd. This left tho board
standing seven to nmo-seven for Mr. Lew
is and nine against. But a voto taken for
secretary resulted in tho casting of twenty
one votes, and investigation proved that
Mr. Lewis had cast.his proxies In Bpito of

To The Luu.ktin's assertion that the
defeat of the ''Eckfords" in this city last
Sunday was due to the fact that they de
pended entirely upon their home talent,
and that, in onler to beat the Cairo club aa
they did last year, they must do as they did
then, enfayo several professional players
from Louisville, the News, of Puducah, J
replies thus forcibly: "Stuff and nonsense I ,
The Kck fords were bothered by a new
player who had never practiced with them.
We'll go the editor of The Bulletin a box
of ciicars that when tho return game is
played tho Kckfords will warm it to the
Kiryptians at leapt two to one. 'Put up I' "
Tim IJui.i.etin is horrified at the brazen
wickedness of the News, and indignantly
repel Is even the implication that)
t would or could be madu a party, even in
thought, to un act so openly in defience of
law and moral ty, as is proposed in tho fore
going paragraph. Tub Bulletin will con
descend to inform tho News, that it never
beta, never smokes, nor chews either tobac
co or gum, never plays base-ball or goes
fishing on Hunday, never drinks, or uses
cuss words, dousn't know tho difference be
tween aj ick pot and a railroad, and doesn't
approve of any ono else knowing or doing
any theso mid innumerable other sinful
things. But we would whisper it in the
News' ear, that if it will just addrcos itsolf
to its humble sctvant personally, it can be
accommodated, and ho will "see" its box
of cigars and go it several times better.
