Last Sunday night Uev. J. A. Scarritt
preached his last sermon before the confer
cuce meets to reassign pastors to different
charges. In this sermon Rev. Scarritt madu
a statement of facts concerning the congre
gation, the church and its management,
which is interesting to the general public
During his two years connection with tho
church thero had been but ono death in
tho congregation and that was a member
not living in this city, and he had been call
ed upon to attend a less number of cases of
serious illness than in the case of any other
congregation ho had over presided over, all
of which certainly 6iieuks well
for his health of his locality.
Ho had never had more attentive, respectful
audiences, nor any with as few sleepy ones
among them, as here, but be said with rej
gret, that the averago attendance was, iu
proportion to the numerical strength of the
congregation, much smaller than it ought
to have been, smaller than it had been in
any other congregation over which he had
presided. The financial condition of the
church was a flattering one. The church
had not only met all its regular expenses
promptly, but had made heavy
extraordinary expenditures, and had
also piid tho interest on its
old debt and reduced the principal
to the extent of $50. It had paid 570 for
repairs on the church building; the pastor's
salary, $900; donations for benevo
lent purposes, $130 the expendi
tures had been unwards of
2,200, all of which had been paid. Rev.
Scarrit will go to tho conference this week
aud will be able to make an excellent report
f the condition of his charge here.
Replying to Tiik Bulletin's assertion
that the payment of over $10,000 by the
city to citizens who had labored for it was
a practical illustration of Mayor Halliday's
assertion that "tho employment of idle citi
zens in public improvements does not cost
the city at large unything," the Argus in
sists again that this statement is not true.
It insists that only 25 per cent, of the
$10,000 paid out as above stated would be
retained by the merchants as profits on
goods sold and that the remainder, $7,500,
would be sent out of the city for new goods.
Most anybody else would say that the $7,500
had been paid for new goods; but the Argus
insists that it was paid for "public improve
ments." Most anybody else would say that
if the city had not paid out this
$10,000 there would, in the first
place.Miave been no public improvement,
and secondly, no employment of the con
sumers; that the consumption ot groceries,
provisions, ice cream and whisky, and the
wearing of clothes, would have gone on all
the same; that tho consumers would either
have drawn on their savings and paid for
these things, or they would have bought
tho goods on "tick"; that tho merchants
would either have sent $7,500 ot the con
sumers' savings out of the city to replenish
their stocks, or having "marked it on the
slate," they would have had to draw on
their own bank accounts to the tune of $7,
500; but the Argus claims that if tho con
sumer is not employed ho neither eats,
drinks, smokes nor wears clothing (the
truth being, however, as Mayor Hallidty
said, that ho does these things foolish
things if the Argus may be believed more
when idle than when employed); that the
merchant may then keep his goods in
his store, needs not send money out
of the city to replenish his stock, can euck
his thumbs for a living andjhis clerks do
the same thing. Most anybody else would
'iy that tho $7,500 would
have gone out of the city,
even if the city had not paid out that
$10,000 in the employment of its idle labor
ers on the levee, etc., and that this ten
thousand dollars only went to replace what
the laborer and merchants had to take
from their surplus cash to meet their daily
wants and to replenish their stocks; but
tho Argus maintains very emphatically that
this is not true. Wo must confess, that in
tho presence of such sublime taith in tho
correctness of a very palpable error, tho
simplest logic and tho most convincing
argument aro useless trash.
Tho Argus persists in drawing a com
parison between tho bankrupt town of
Elizabeth, N. J., and the city of Cairo
which is now perfectly solvent and cannot
ho bankrupted so long as tho constitution
of the state remains unchanged. Tho com
parison i palpably no comparison at all.
Tho Argus also persists in shaking expired
and foreclosed mortgages in tho faces of
the property holders aud tho advocates of
tho high grade, and also in tin
f'-o of the fact mortgages,
if given at all, may bo given for twenty
years and need not bo given for moro than
thu cost of tho filling and the area walls,
for say, $250 at most. Tho intimation that,
if tho street raising project bo inaugurated
(as it certainly must be, soouer or lator)
llioro will bo a legion of hungry mortgagees
swarming ovor us, watching liko so
many Shylucks for tho first opportunity to
demand tho pound of flesh from as many
citizens, presumes what the Argus would
not daro to openly assert for
fear of inquiring its own
case, namely, that most of our property
holders anil business men aro even now in
a state bordering upon bankruptcy, and
would bo compelled tomortgago their little
possessions, it possible, to obtain a few
hundred dollars. Tho truth is, that, though
laboring longer and under L'reater
lisadvantages than most other
communities, this community can
boast of as many men of as many ready
dollars as any other community of equal
size; and if it were not for tho one great
uisaovantage much lias always and com
pletely hidden our many great advantages
from the outside world, we would not only
have held our business men who, ono after
another when they had made a few thousand
dollars, left us to invest tlmir
money in other and safer cities, but we
would havedrawn upon the outside world of
capitalists and we would have inillioiiares
where we uow have men of a tew thousands
But evt u as it is we have not quite so many
paupers among us as the Argus would huve
us believe; and wo are confident, as is uny
one who knows anything about tho mm
who hold property here, that in the first
district to bo laid off by the ordinance now
in tho hands of the council com
mutes for the commencement of
of tho grand work that is to make Cairo
the centre of attraction for the north, south,
east and west, wo are confideut that in
this district not four men will have to
mortgage their property in order to meet
the special assessment. All the others have
tho cash ready in hand, many of them ten
times the amount, some of them twenty
times the amount, aud nearly all of them
are ready to "plank down" tho "lucre" on
the day the improvement is ordered,, too,
and don t you ever torget it.

THE ARMSTRONG ftUOTHERS.
This fine minstrel show will appear at
the Opera House this evening, and those
of our people who desire to witness an en
tire new ver.-ion of minstrelsy will not f til

semi-circle of chairs, with the perfoniKrs
standing behind, the rising curtain reveals
a vacant stage, handsomely set as a garden,
abounding in rustic chairs aud vases tilled
with fragrant natural flowers. The inter
locutor, Mr. George Hammond, makes his
appearance and explains that he has issued
invitations for a garden party, and gradual

A REAL NECESSITY.
We presume there is hardly a lady to be
found in our broad land who, if she does
not already possess a sewing machine, ex
pects some day to become the owner of one.
But after the mind has been fully made
up to purchase ono of these indispensable
articles, the question arises as to what kind
of a machine to buy.
It should be so simply constructed that
the most inexperienced can successfully
operate it. The other points mainly to be
considered, and which are the most desira
ble, are durability, rapidity, capacity for
work, ease of operation, regularity of mo
tion, uniformity of tensity, and silence
while in operation.
The "Light-Running New Home" tills
the above requirements, and is said to com
bine the good points of all sewing machines
with the addition of many new improve
ments and labor-saving devices.
The price is no higher than that of other
machines, and every lady who is the happy
possessor of ono may rest assured she has
indeed a treasure.

A BIG SHOW.
It is o big show; it is a respectbaly con
ducted bIiow, it is a good show. Nono of
those rough, rowdyish, tiresome, or annoy
ing features which usually accompany a
largo circus are present. The lemonade
fiend is absent, the howling peanut vender
is not heard; nothing loud, rude or boister
ous will be found in the ring. The menog
erie part is a treat, in its cleanliness, tho
sizo aud convenience of its cages, and tho
condition of tho animals. Tho visitor does
not find a few worn-out specimens of ill
fed and angry animals, so constantly exhi
bited as to become as common as cows.
All the living things are well carod for, and
arc, cither from their kind, their size, or
their nature, rarely seen in traveling shows.
Wo have visited many similar shows in
our time, but more to praise less to blamo
wo never saw under canvaBs. Ono of tho
most novel features of the exhibition is a
hoard of trained stall ious, who do feats
usually seen performed by elephants. Tho
trained dogs, too, will bo especially amusing
to children, and in tho whole show, while
thero is very much to amuse and instruct,
there is nothing toanno or offend Week
