and a successful one, too. Quail, also, is
very plentiful everywhere. The woods, it

trees in tho city even are oftnn alivo with
them, and their rather unmusical squeal
and nervous flutter are heard in all parts of
tho city. Hquirrols are not less plentiful.
Altogether, hunters and fishers seem to
have a better season for sport this year than
formany yors lieforn, and they are taking
advantage of it.
A brace of young sports living up
town wero on a bender Saturday night

Tho Ktmenyi concert at tho Opera
House last night was a tuo.-t
delightful affair. A verr fair
audience was present, composed
of most of our musical talent and our
music lovers. The performance was a
very fine one throughout, and the enlight
ened audience frequently gave hearty evi
dence of its appreciation. The perform
ances upon the violin by Prof. Kemenyi
surpassed anything in the way of instiu
mental mu?ic that had been hero since Ole
Hull appeared before a Cairo audience.
The old gentleman made the instrument
speak to the audience in tones that visibly
affected every one in the houso. Tlx!
who attended were certainly splendidly en
tertained. An important real estate improvement
is soon to bo made on Ohio levee, below
Sixth street. Mr. A. T. DjBaun has con
cluded to erect a large Brick houso on the
site of his present place of business. The
building will be one hundred feet wide and
two hundred feet ab.ive the levee. It will
be used by Mr. Delttun as a restaurant and
will be ono of thi largest, completeet and
fine-t institutions of its kind in the city.

A )oung white woman named Josie
Smith was arreted by Officer Jno. Tyler
yesterday for stealing u valuable ring from
Mr. Patrick Fitzgerald, and being charged
with vagrancy, which was considered tho
wisest under all the ciicuiustaucea, she
was fined one hundred dollars and giver, a
stay of one hour. Mr. F. had hired her for
general house work on Friday. Sho went
homo (in Saturday and did not return Sun
day. The loss of tho ring was discovered
soon after, and Chief Myers was notified.
The chief and Officer McTigue scoured the
city closely l day Sunday, hut couldn't
find the girl, and at night the search was
given over to Officer Tyler, who found the
ring in the Chirk mansion on o,io levee
and captured the girl yesterday in the
same neighborhood, .
On her last trip up the rive, several
days ago, tho steamer Scudder brought a
dozen men from Plum Point, who had buen

Among them was Mr. T. K. Parker, of
Uushes' Uidg, Mo., well-known in this
city. These men carried all or part of
their last mouth's wages in their pockets,
mostly in the form of checks on somo St.
Louis bank, an ) on their way up, while
they wero asleep, some of tho negro deck,
hands on the boat cut open the pockets of
about half a dozen of tho men and took
from them tho checks, ranging in value
from twelve to thirty-five dollars. The
checks were all made payable to bearer and
henco the loosers have no remedy. Mr.
Parker lost a check for $30.00 all the
money he had.
Rev. B. Y. George preached his faro
wull sermon to his congregation last Sun
day morning. The church was full of in
terested auditors, who were very deeply
interested iu the service. Mr. George was
noted in the community for his able ser
mons, but the one of last Sunday morning
is pronounced by those who were fortunate
enough to hear it us the finest that bus
been prenched in tho church for many
years. Two new members wero received by
letter, Mrs. Carver and Mrs. Henry Haird.
Mr. George will be ready to depart for his
new homo about Friday, including his fam
ily and household effects. Under Mr.
George's charge the Presbyterian con
gregation has prospered much and constant
ly, and the church building has grown to
be one of the most beautiful, iuterually, in
the city. In Cairo society Mr. and Mrs.
George have occupied exhaltod stations and
have been universally esteemed, and here
their departurejwill leave wide gaps, which,
perhaps, none will entirely fill. We are,
sure that the community will join us in the
hope that Mr. and Mrs. George may like
their future homo better than this.
Contributed: Services wero held in
the Methodist church on Sunday for the
first timo sinco conference. Kev. J. A.
Scarritt has been returned to this charge,
and commences his labors for tho third
year under very flattering auspices. Mr.
Scarritt is universally beloved by his mem
hers and congregation, and they hail with
delight his return to them. During his
ministry the last year much worn has been
accomplished; quite a number have been
added to the church; also financially the
church is in a good condition, not owing a
dollur, with the exception of a small debt
incurred several years ago. Some months
a,'o Mr. Scarritt gave a very minute his
tory of the cnurch, with an accurate
statistical report with its varied drawbacks,
since 1850, prior to which time, we believe,
he had no figures. This was the firtt
organized church iu Cairo, and he congrat
ulated its members, that they hive labored
ana been blessed so abundantly. On
Sunday morning Mr. Scarritt preached a
beautiful and touching sermon. Iu the
evening a song and praise scrvico was held
in which several prominent singers took
part. The voluntary, which was an authem,
was very lino; Mr. Crowell taking ttie lead-iut,-

The ladies of Cairo have become ac
customed to looking forward with great
expectations to the annual "opening" to
which Mrs. S. Williamson treats them at
her millinery establishment on Seventh
street, and heretofore they have ever found
their highest anticipations fully realized.
Ttiey have found the most magnificent dis
plays of ladies furnishing goods in infinite
variety and all the artistic combinations of
colors or material approved in tho latest
e liet of the god of fashion. This year
Mrs. Williamson has been as studious of
the wants of the ladies of Cin and sur
rounding country as ever before. She has
been north and east for a week and will
remain nearly another week examining the
great stocks of the foremost fashion bazaars
in the country, from which she will make
her selections for her own customers. Her
goods have already begun to arrive, and
will continue to arrive everyday this week,
and on Thursdty next the usual "opening"
will begin at her Seventh street stand.
Mrs. Williamson always carries the heaviest
stock of millinery goo ls in the city, and
her many years' ex;"rionC! in tho liu-iiness
enables her to always keep it up to the
limes. Her opening this year will bo like
unto a grand exposition, at which every
thing that is beautiful and useful and fash
ionable in ladies' goods will be displayed
in profusion ami with brilliant effect.
None Bh iuld fail to attend the opening,
and all should wait for it. 2t

Springtield K-gistu: ''The eleventh
annual state convention of the Illinois
Young Men's Christian Association will be
hold in this city this we. k, commencing on
Thursday evening, October 11th, and con
tinuing through the week, closing ou Sun
day evening. The meetings wi.l be held
in the First Mctho.i't church. This con
vention will be a notable gathering of
active christian workers, and should enlist
the interest of all our people who believe
in the church militant and who hope to see
it become the church triumphant. N'o
organization of the followers of Jesus, the
meek and lowly carpenter of Nazareth,
more fully embodies the spirit of the man
who went about, doing good. There is no
bigotry or sectarianUm in its make up.
Its object is to carry the gospel to those
who either will uot or cannot be reached by
the ordinary influences of the vaiious
churches; an I p ir'icularly is its work di
rected to keeping and leading young men
from the paths ot vice and bringing them
under the elevating and purifying influ
ences of the library, the reading room, the
social circle, the associations that belong
to the good, the true and the beautiful.
The Register considers this work a j;rand
one for humtiiity, and one that deserves
tint eticoui igelie'lit of those even who do
not aliilint.- with religious denominations.
.Many a young man has been saved from
crime and a blighted luture by the kindly
ministrations of these associations. We
do not say that all their members are ex
emplary or that the societies do not err,
possibly often; but the objects and tho re
sults of their work in the main are vastly
beneficial to the young men of tho country.
We hope to Hee the people of Springtield
take un interest in the coming meeting of
the state organi.ttion. The programme is
well arranged, and will prove interesting
throughout. A dumber of prominent gen
tl cinen engaged in the work in this and
other H'ates will be here, and will giv
those who are in attendance tho benefit of
their ample experience and wise counsel."
