The secretary of the Covenant Mutual

The poor family on Commercial avenue,
Bpokenofin The Bulletin several days
ago, has been visited by several charitable
ladies in this city and temporally relieved
by them. The ladies found the family as
stated by Tub Bulletin, in a very needy
condition and evidently worthy of aid. But
there is need of further aid ami the ladies
whostarted tho good work should be joined
by others. Many can do with ease what u
few can not do at all.

dawn when the letter writers of this coun

for a considerable Job on the outer base of
the new embankment contracted by the
Wabash roal at tlin Cotton compress, form
ing what is known as the Y. This is to be
protected fiom future attacks of tho river
by a rock revetment. Capt. Cole also ex
pnetathat ho will have another smaller job
on tho Mississippi bank, from Col. Taylor,
before l ing. Tho work on "Tho Claim" is
also still in progres under the Captain's di
ruction. The lower dyke, it Is expectod
will bo finished during the prevalence

will requiro a month's work yet and the
water will not remain low long enough to
finish it this year.
Washing whitlows with a well-sweep
is one of the quiet comforts that are often
present during a promenade through the
streets in the business portions of the
town. If there is anything that is pleasant
to a pedestrian it is to dodge a pole about
eighteen feet long in the hands of a win
low-cleaner. If you miss the polo you are
quite likely to net into the pail of dirty
water or the gutter. But In cither event
you atfird the engineer of the Dole aud
others standing near a world of amuse
ment. Keep it uo. Cleanliness in all
things is a virtue.
Paymaster Gaiger, of the Texas and
St. Lou:s railroad, has concluded lieiea:ter
to payoff only in checks on St. L mis. He
cousiders it unsafe to take Urge sums ol
money through the country along the line
ot the roa 1 every month. While there
have been uo demonstrations ot any kind
as ye?, he prefers r.o "close tao stable door
before the horse is s'oica." The checks
wid be m good, m money a'.l along the
Hue, as they will be made payable on d
umd at the bick in St. L.mis. It is just
pos,ible, however, that the many good peo
ple along the iine will consider this step an
insult to them aud will refuse to take tho
Trouble is brewing among the Odd Fel
lows of the country. The Sovereign Grand
L)Ji,eof the Odd Fellows was in cession at
Vvidence, Rhode Island, last week. The
s abject that engaged particular attention
was what is knowu as the Patriarch Circle
defection. The Circle is a new order which
requires membership in one of the branches
ofOdl Fellowship as a qualification of
membership in any lodge or "temple" of
the Circle. The S vereigo Grand Lodge
unanimously adopted a resolution that an
Odd Fellow who shall hereafter retain
membership in or become a member of any
secret organization like the Circle, shall
be guilty of conduct unbecoming an Odd
Fellow, and upon conviction of the offense
shall be expelled. This actiyn will make
a commotion among the brethcru ot the
three links, and may be the occasion of the
withdrawal of the Patriaichal Circle advo-
cates from the order.
Mr. A. P. Daniels, our former fellow-
citizen, has immortalized himself in this
community by the very superior stage tal
ent he permitted the Cairo public to attend
ut the Opera House last night under the
title ot "The Mystics," The performance
was so inferior in every respect that it
would derive undeserved dignity even from
a well-deserved, severe denunciation.
When not positively course, it was so con
foundedly "thin" that it was really laugh
able, and the audience laughed much aud
heartily, partly on this account anp partly
at the completeness aud magnificence of
the "sell" to which they were being made
victims. Wo understand that the
"company" will not remain to conclude
i is engagement, aud whether it does or not
is probably a matter of per-fect indiff
ereuce to those who attended the perform
ance last night, which would be about
the bestteiug Mr. Dameles could hope for'
Officer McTig'ie arrested a switchman
on the Wabash road Wednesday night tor
obstructing the street aud crossings with
cars. Tho case came up before Justice
Robinson yesterday afternoon but was cou
t uued until this afternoon in order to bring
defendant's accomplices before the court at
the same time. It is understood that the
men have orders from headquarters not to
obstruct the street and to dj tlieir switch
ing all in the yards up town or on the
Mississippi side; but the men claim that
tlieir orders are to "do the work," and that
is all. But there is now no longer any
doubt but that the switching of freight
cars on lower Commercial avenue will
cease after the 1st of October, when the
freight department consolidation spoken of
before iu these columns, will tako effect aud
all the freiijln for tho Wabash, Mobile &
Ohio, and Iron Mountain roads will be
bundled in tho yards of tho Mobile &
Yesterday the remnant of tho immense
dock of groceries, dry goods, clothing, etc.,
of tho New Yolk store, reduced as low as
possible by weeks of heavy Bales aud uo
replenishment, was appraised by the gentle
men appointed for that purpose, Messrs.
Win. Kluge, Henry Wells, and AI. W. Sloo.
The appiiiiMiient was made for tho purposo
of making a settlement with tho wife of tho
ilcceaned member of the tlrmtf C. O. Patier
& Co., Mr. Win. Wolfe. To reduco the
stock so materially and yet not cripple the
extensive business of tho house required
shrewd management to which Mr. Putier
was entirely equal. Tho business was not
interrupted a day and will in a few days
trout now, start up as vigorously as ever
under a new condition of things. Applica
tion has been made to the secretary of
atato for papers incorporating a stock com
pany, Mr. C. O. Patier, Mr. ElniorE. Coinings
und Mr. E lward P. Powell bulng tho incor
porator. Tho papers aro expected' to ex
rive every day. While la the past the Now
York store has boon onoof the largest in
stitutions of its kind in this ond of the state
it will in future probably be much increas
ed in its capacity for business, and there is
not the least doubt but that its business
will increase accordingly.
Captaiu Mart Cole is probably destined
to make this city hij headquarters for
quite a while yet. Ho has recently taken a
contract from the Singer company, for do
uigsome extensive work on tho river frout
of the company, in front of the machine
workc, aud about tho base of tho log way
inerebavo been somo abrasions at tho
bank and hero brush mattresses are to be
sunk from the top of tho bank to the bot
tom of tho river. The bank is then to bo
revetted with rock, its entire length of two
hundred and fifty feet and from the top to
low watermark. Tho low way is, as every
one who has seen it knows, a very substan
tial and costly affair. It extends some dis
tance out into the river and now that tho
water is low it appears that the current lias
washed the bed out from under it. It is
the intention of the compitny to have tho
washouts filled with rock and to have tho
base of the way so protected by rock that
mluture the water can make no inroads
upon it. Tho work will engage Cpt
loli: satteution for about a month. It is to
be commenced uext week, preparations for
beginning it being already in progress.

WOHKlNflUEN AND MECHANICS.
The marine hospital matter rests be
tween Maj. Connelly, United States Dis
trict Attorney at Springfield, and Surgeon
Geueral Hamilton at Washington. At last
accounts tho transfer of the land sought
by Col. Hamilton for the hospital site bad
not been made, although the piice to lie
paid for it and all other details between the
seller and parchaser had been agreed upon.
The reason of this was that the district at
torney had not reported to Washington the
decision ot the court fixing the amount to
be piid by the government for the land.
The attorney has been engaged iu some
very important cases of late, one ol whh:h
was an application by Governor Hamilton
for a mandamus compelling the state treas
urer to honor drafts upon him for money
to pay the expenses of the Illinois malitia.
This case has been but just decided, the
mandamus being refused aud it is proba
ble that now Maj. Connelly will give his at
tention to matters of minor importance. It
is understood that Co'. Hamilton is very
anxious to begin work and the delay is
probably not his fault.

In the stovo department will bo found an
immense variety of cooking stoves for coal

Oak," the best cooking stovo tor all pur
pose that ia manufactured. Mr. Heuder
son displays exellent judgment in selecting
his stock to suit his customers, carefully
studying their interest and buying every
thing new that will suit them. That ho is
appreciated, his immense aud increasing
trade testifies; that he can please all that
calls, his stock of stoves, tho heaviest and
comprising the largest variety ever brought
to southern Illinois, is a guarantee. He
has the solo agency for tho "Jewel" a soft
coal stove and the only base burner without
