Capt. Joe Fowler, of Paducah, who
attended tho Opera House here a few nights
ago, gives his opinion of thej Cairo Opera
House in the following characteristic style
of his own: "The Ciiro Opera House is
A 1 side-wheeler, copper-bottomed cratt,
in fine repair, with four steel boilers on the
main deck, and a hold full of coal." And
also says: "Warde is as good a man
at Hamlet's wheel as ever Bounded bis
whistle in a fog."
A wom'an with two small boys, a babe
in arms and a cur dog, which is one of tho
indispensable features of a poverty-stricken
family, arrived here Thursday and were on
the streets yesterday. They say they came
by river and landed here entirely destitute.
They certainly were the filthiest looking
party we have ever met with which was in
excusable to a great extent as they seemed
to bo in perfect health. The only thing
they were well supplied with was filth
which they possessed in abundance. The
woman said she was going to New Orleans
if it took all winter, which will likely be
the case. Cairo hasenoug of her own
poor to care without being afflicted with
importations from all quarters.
A curious case comes from Belvidere,
III. A woman of that town left 8. J. Hud
son, her husband, and travelled to Wauke
gan, Wis., where ehe passed as a man, un
der the name of DuBois, and where she last
spring married a girl named Fuller. The
bride seems to have been satisfied with her
lot. Few such instances are recorded, the
most remarkable among them, perhaps, be
ing that of a woman who, passing under
the name of Campbell, Berved for thirty
years as a medical officer in the British
army. It was cot till his, or rather her death
took place a few years ago at Malta that
the secret of her sex was discovered. Mr.
Hudson, who had been in search of his
wife for some months, found her Wednes
day when, seeing hcrcelf discovered, she
willingly agreed to break up her now home
and to return to her wifely duties. Miss
Fuller is probably on the lookout for some
thing more masculiuc in tho shape of a
A prisoner, condemned to solitary con
finement, obtained a copy ot the Bible, and
by throe years careful study, obtained the
following facts :-The Bible contains 8,580,
480 letters, 773,693 words, 31,172 versos,
1,189 chapters, and 60 books. Tho word
and occurs 46,277 timos. The word Lord
occurs 1,885 times. The word Reverend
occurs but once, which is in the 9th verse
of tho lllth Psalm. The middle verso is
the 8th verso of the 118th Psalm. The 21st
verse of the 7th chapter of Ezra contains all
the letters in the alphabet except the letter
J. The finest chapter to read is the 20th
chapter ol the Acts of the Apostles. The
19th chapter of II. Kint's and the 37th
chapter of Isaiah are alike. The longest
verse is the 9th verso of tho 8th chapter of
Esther. The shortest verso is the 35th
verso of the 11th chapter of St. John. The
8th, 15tb, 21st and 31st verses of the 107th
Psalm are alike. Each verso of tho 136th
Psalm are alike. There are no words or
names of moie than six syllables.
The performance of ' IT' last evonlng
at tho Opera House was not as well pat
ronized us it deserved, but if our situw
going people had ouly known tho Hue
merits of this superb troupe, the house
would mostly surely have been crowded, as
it is the best company of its class that has
visited Cairo for many sens'ms. Mis-s Mary
Ulnier, as "Carrots", was charming and
couid not have dono better, and F. Tanne
hill, tho "Forty Miner," played his role
to perfection. Mr. Geo. Ames, in his rep
resentation id' the "lawyer," fully sustained
his part. Mr. Graudin, as the "total wreck,"
acted as though he had "really been there,"
in fact the whole troupe were fully up in
their parts, and the performance close on a
delighted and most highly pleased audi

company ever pay Cairo another visit, we
can assure the pretty aud natural little
actress she will be greeted with a crowded
Minneapolis Tiibune: "The states do
not protect, nor pretenl, nor attempt to
protect, all classes of citizens in the enjoy,
ment of their rights. With the civil tights
act stricken down, the colored citizens of
many states will be, with the counivance
and consent of those states, deprived of
rights, the withholding of which from white
I. n north or south would and should create
insurrection and bloody resistance." The
above is a sample of the twaddle printed in
some northern Republican journals. This
same Minneapolis Tribune has been for
years declaring that the rights of the negro
are utterly ignored and "stricken down" in
the southern states. The civil rights act
has been on the statute book for eight years
and has been an absolute dead letter. Un
der it the Triuune has repeatedly declared
the negro has had no rights; how is he go
ing to deprived of what the Tribune says
he never possessed by the supreme court
decision that the civil rights act is uncon
stitutional and void? The fact is, every
person of oidinary intelligence knows that
the invalidation of the civil rights act has
not alteied the status of the American ne
gro a particle. There is uot a state in the
Union which deprives the negro of his
rights as a citizen. No state Las under
taken to legislate the neero into hotels,
parlor and sleeping cars, barber shops and
the private residences of white citizeus, and
the absence of such legislation is indorsed
by tbe supreme court, which declares that
the attempt to so legislate is extra-constitutional
The U. S. government steamer General
Barnard arrived here last evening at 10
o'clock aud had on board the U. S. senate
committee, who are going south to inspect
the river improvements on the lower Mis
sissippi. They came down the Mississippi
from St. Louis upon the same mission. The
following is the list of distinguished gentle
men with aids, etc: Hon. John A. Logan,
chairman; Hon. Philetus Stwyer, of Wis.;
Hon. B. F. Jones, of La.; Hon. J. D. Walk
er, ot Ark.; Jas. I. Christie, deputy sergeant
at aims, U. S. senate; S. A. Jones, messen
ger, acting door keeper U. S. senate; H. T.
N. Robinson, clerk; Theo. F. Shney, steno
grapher; Nels-m Parker, porter; W. B. Tay
lor, private secretary to the chairman. Hon.
II. H. Evans accomplanies the committee.
A meeting was called on board tho
steamer General Barnard while lying at the
wharf here, somo of our leading citi
zens attended and were interviewed by Gen.
Logan and other members of committee.
Among those of our citizens who expressed
their views to the committee, were Mayor
Thos. Halliday, ex Mayor Thistlewood, Col.
Taylor, Capt. Tom Shields, Capt. Charles
Nellis, Judge W. II. Green and Hon. D. T.
Linegar; all of whom were of the universal
opinions that the improvement at the va
rious points has been ot incalculable advan
tage to navigation. Capt. Nellis, however,
thought that great economy could be real
ized by lettii g out the contract to private
parties, instead of being pursued as hereto
fore. Tho committee departed last night
on their steamer provided for the occasion
and will proceed south to gain all the in
formation possible. It is to be hoped that
their trip will result favorably to navigation
and allow anothor appropriation sufficient
to complete the good work.
