A quantity of Btraw on the deck of the
steamer Mary Houston caught fire last
night about 7 o'clock, while the boat was
lying at the wharf here, and created much
excitement for a while. Timely discovery
and prompt, well-directed action alone,
prevented the destruction of the boat.
Very little damage was done. The cause
of the fire is a mystery.
One of the boilers of the Singer com
pany's factory burned out Wednesday, and
as the remaining boilers can not furnish
enough steam power to run the machinery
and the drying apparatus at once, the for

and the men are divided into a day and a
night force. This arrangement will pre
vail until the damaged boilet can bo re

The executive committee of the Young
Men's Christian association has decided to
give a reception to railroad men, at the
rooms of the association, on the 6th of De
cember. A reception to citizens generally
was given Monday night at the residence of
Mr. Crane, the secretary, and was a very
well attended and a very pleasant affair.
Voluntary contributions were solicited for
the benefit of the association and the solici
tations were liberally responded to.

This piece of poetry was written by our
special poet. He has since died.
(N. B. It wasn't the cigar, but the po

From what we could learn about the
mum social given at the residence of Mrs.
Wood Rittenhousejlast night by the ladies
of the Presbyterian church, the ladies have
much reason to be proud of the affair. The
attendance was large, the spacious parlors
ot the residence being filled with guests.
The afftir was ono out ot the regular order,
affording much amusement for all present,
and the refreshments were rich and par
taken ot by nearly all with evident relish.
Music, singing ami dancing were among
the means of passing the time. The re
ceipts from the various sources were all
that could have been hoped.
The rains of Wednesday and Wednes
day night were quite general, and every
where were fully as heavy as here, if not
heavier. Bad washou's occurred on all but
ono of tiio railroads centring here and all
trains were late. The Mobile & Ohio
passenger train was the only one of the
eight or ten trains due here Wednesday
night that camo in on time. Tho cause of
delay in tho caso of nearly all trains was
ono or more abrasions in tho road bed,
which it would have been dangerous, if not
impossible to pass. On the Illinois Cen-
t - i - o - :n H
tral the damage wai at Macauda. The
cause of the temporary cessation of traffic
on the St. Louis & Cairo road wai tho cav
ing in of the tunnel about fiye miles above
Joneaboro. The tunnel is about four nun
dred feet long, and about fifty feet of it is
filled with earth that fell from the ceiling
and suits. A large force of men was iinme
diately put to work, and trains will be run
ning again, it is thought, to-day. The lo
cation of the Wabash, tho Iron Mountain,
the Mississippi Central and the Texas &
St. Louis papers we did not learn.
An item headed "Cairo," taken from
the Anna Talk, is worthy of a careful pe
rusal by every Cairoite. The item is well
written and tells some important truths
about Cairo. The writer attributes the
fact that Cairo has uot grown more rapidly
to the correct cause: a failure on the pari
of her ci'izens, as a rule, to try to develope
her resources. The writer of the article
certainly has a correct conception of what
may be done here by well-directed energy
and active enterprise; and if our people
generally could be made to understand the
matter in the same way and then to act
persistently upon that understanding,
Cairo's gran 1 possibilities would soon be
made to materialize.
Two suits have been filed in the Cir
cuit Court by Mr. Angus Leek, for Louis J.
Koehler, against Jacob Walter, the Eighth
street butcher. One of them is an action
for trespsss, the damage beinc fixed at $1,
000; the other an action for slander, asking
12.000 as damages. The acts which
prompted these suits were perpetrated sev
eral days ago, Tuesday, we believe. Mr.
Walter, while under the influence of liquor,
abused young Koehler, calling him, among
other things, a cow thief. The latter re
sented the abuse by knocking Walter down
and kicking him. Subsequently Walter,
armed with a large butcher knife, went to
Koehlers shop, and finding the doors
closed and no one inside, broke a number
of the window panes in the door and cut
out the sashes with his knife. This is the
ground for the actions brought. There are
also two city cases pending against Mr.
Walter, which have not yet come to trial.
Young Koehler was fined for assaulting
The New York Sun has been looking
into the matter of appropriations by con
gress for furnishing the President's man
sion at Washington, and reveals the follow
ing interesting facts for the consideration
of the taxpayers of the nation. It appears
that before the late civil war congress
usually appropriated every fourth year a
sum of $10,000 or $15,000 to refurnish the
White House for an incoming president.
Such parts of the old furniture as had been
injured were sold, and the proceeds of the
sale were added to the fund for the new
equipment. But since the accession of
Grant the appropriations have iucreased
enormously, as tho following shows: 1870,
$25,000; 1871, $15,000; 1872, $5,000; 1873,
$12,000; 1874, $10,000; 1875, $10,000;
1876, $10,000; 1877, $17,000; 1878, $20,
000; 1879, $25,000; 1880, $23,000; 1881,
$20,000; 1882, $30,000; 1883, $25,000;
1884, $25,000 -total, $272,000. It will be
noticed that $85,000 were voted for furni
ture during the term of President Hayes,
aud more than halt of this total in the
years 1879 and 1880. If this money was
honestly applied to the objects for which it
was granted, the "White House must have
been thoroughly equipped in every respect
when General Garfield entered it as Presi
dent. But it is an open secret that scarcely
any of the articles of ordinary household
use were found in the executive mansion
on the 4:h of March, 1881. They had mys
teriously disappeared with the exodus.
Now that Col. Taylor has taken a
hand in the work of raising and strengthen
ing the Mississippi levee from New Levee
street down, it will move forward with
greater dispatch than it has done. The St.
Louis and Cairo road began the work of
raising its tracks on top of the levee some
time ago, under agreement with Col. Tay
lor. It proceeded with the work steadily
but with less energy than it might have
done, aud it confined itself exclusively to
raising its tracks and widening tho top of
the levee two feet, making it fourteen instead
of twelve feet wide. But the company made
no attempt at restoring the old slopes, per
haps intending to do this after it had finish
ed raising the tracks; and Col. Taylor,
believing this to be the most important
part of the work, and seeing that the com
pany, if it continued the work at all, would
not be able to finish the slopes by the time
water came up and prevented tho work, un
ess it grc-itly increased its force, has con
eluded to "help the company out," as lie
expressed it. The Col. has engaged two
gangs of men and teams to work on the
outer slope of the levee, giving it a fall of
one foot and three inches, from the oil
works up. Believing that the improvement
of the levee is of greater importance to the
city than the filling of streets, etc., the
mayor and street committee have consented
to permit Mr. Julius Sarbian to stop the
work of filling upper Commercial avenue
and put his force of men and teams to
work on the levee for Col. Taylor. Mr
Sarbian will put bis men to work as soon as
the weather will permit, commencing about
opposite tho oil works. Another gang, also
already engaged, will commence at another
point on the levee. About two miles of the
slope will have to be raised so as to con
form to the now grade of the embankment.
The railroad company has done considera
ble work, but it will have nearly another
week's work to level up its track on the
levee, which is, in some places, considera
bly below the grade fixed tor the levee.
The wedding of Mr. 8. W. Shumakor
and Miss Anna Ford, which took place
Tuesday evening at the residence of (he
bride's parents, was the occasion of much
joy. The bouse wsb profusely decorated
with southern moss, autumn leaves and red
berries. The parlor in which the marriage
took place was filled with works of art, in
wax and plaster. The bridal party stood
under an arch bearing this inscription:
"God bless this union ;" immediately under
this was a horseshoe of evergreen and red
velvet, with the monogram of the bride and
groom. The inscription and letters were
ot wax and cotton, made by the mother of
the bride. Mr. Walter Turnbill, of New
York, acted as groomsman, and Miss Maud
Burnett, cousin of the bride, was brides
maid. The bride looked very handsome in
gray silk and velvet and orange blossoms.
The bridesmaid wore seal brown silk and
velvet. After the ceremony, which was
very impressive, much merriment was
caused in the jmanner of the congratula
tions. At 9 o'clock the company pro
ceeded to the spacious dining room and
partook of .the feast there provided. The
table and dining room were elaborately
trimmed with flowers, plants, vines and
moss; in the centre of the table was a pyra
mid of iruits and vines reaching to the
chandliers and from thence to the ceiling.
The cream, which wa pronounced by many
to be of the best they had ever eaten, was
provided by Mr. L. P. Parker, of The Hal
liday. At a late hour the guests departed
for their homes, feeling that they had spent
a very happy evening. The presents were
very handsome and numerous, some coming
from New York, Philadelphia, Florida,
Texas and other places. Also many kind
friends in this city remembered tho happy
couple. At the wish of the family we re
frain from publishing a list. The orange
blossoms worn by the bride were a gift of
Mrs. Dr. Marean, of Florida.
We have every reason to believe that a
very large audience will be in attendance
at the Opera House to-night and wo feel no
hesitation in predicting that the tntertain
ment will be the very best of the kind ever
produced in the house. We feel confident
that the encomiums which have been heaped
upon the head of Miss Rigl will be justified
in every particular and that the lady will
establish such a firm hold upon the hearts
of her hearers that they will be loath to
give her up.
The plan of the play is such as to exert
tho greatest drawing qualities and as it is a
story of every day life, pure and free from
every objectionable feature, it cannot be
otherwise than interesting and elevating.
Harry Lacy, who is the owner of the play
and manager of the combination, is a
splendid actor and in his interpretations of
the difficult role of Colonel Graham, the
wealthy Southern Planter has added
greatly to a reputation already good.
The company all told number twelve
people, and while not especially lare,
makes up in real genuine talent what might
be lacking otherwise.
We glanced over the box sheet at Buder's
labt night, and while many good seats re
main, it presents a very gratifying specta
cle to those most concerned.
The river town of the American Egypt
will yet be heard from as a city of commer
cial power and prominence. It is the focus
of the least developed and most substantial
regions of the settled west Southern Illi
nois, southeast Missouri, Northwest Arkan
sas and western Kentucky. Its communi
cations both by water and by rail with all
tributary regions, are established. Long
lines of traffic have been unable to pass
within a hundred miles without going
through it. Eveu a colored circle of a
hundred miles' radius will, (when the peo
ple in it have waked up), support a city
of 50,000 population; and since this ciicle
is broken only to give to its commercial
center a longer southern outlook, room is
made for enterprise to double these re
sources. Unable ever to rival St. Louis or
Chisaao, there is no good reason why Cairo
should not pass Memphis and reach the
gride ol Indianapolis. Its opportunity if,
however, more nearly parallel with that of
Louisville or Milwaukee. The interests of
all this region aro closely allied with those
of Cairo, and we are persuaded that these
mutual interests demand a closer relation
ship of trade and news-communication than
as yet exists. Tho city which draws in
forty drummers to its ono first-class hotel
each Sunday, can, (if it will), supply tbe
breakfast table of forty counties with tbe
morning paper, and the stores of a hundred
towns and villages with goods whenever
it has tho nerve to try.
All this would be true even though the
city were particularly unhealthy and ex
posed to floods. But tbis is not the case
During the great flood of 1882 its business
streets suffered nothing in comparison with
those of any other Ohio river town below
Wheeling; and in point of health it is the
most maligned city on the globe. Cairo has
had misfortunes, which go far to excuse tho
nerveless Btate of many of its citizens; but
it has a mine of prosperity to develop which
calls for sagacious intrepidity and patient
endurance of present hardship. Great oc
casions find lassitude a burden, and makes
want of courage, crime.
