The demand for residences in this city
partook much of the nature of a panic
yesterday. Cottages with four rooms were
mostly wanted, but some applications were
for two story houses with seven or eight
rooms. Clerk Foley is "seriously indis

see any connection between the demand
for houses and the clerk's indisposition;
but there is, allee samee, and he will only
be too happy to explain to all who will
take the trouble to ask him.

The Illinois Central railroad company
is preparing to increase the size of the levee
of Mound City, preparatory to laying down
its track apon it. The work to be done
will occupy a force of ubout twenty teams,
and the requisite number of men to work
then, perhaps two weeks. Mr. Julius Sar
bian is one of the bidders for the job. He
is also to make a bid for the contract to do
all the filling and excavatiog that may be
required along the line of the proposed
Wetaug road, and will depart in a few days
to take an inspection trip on horse back
over the surveyed line to sec how much
work, and of what character, is required.

Cairo solar time is only three minutes
slower than the ninetieth meridian or "Cen
tral" time, which is sent us from St. Louis
every day. Cairo people are not much
concerned about the change. But the fact
that the twenty-four o'clock system has not
yet been adopted is a source of some satis
faction to many, because they sec in this
failure a continuance of the bliss derived
from the use of the delightful a. m. and p.
m., which now have to be written every day.

A large and fashionable audience
greeted Harry Lacy'a "Planter's Wife"
combination at the Opera House last
night. It was evident that the amusement
loving people of the city had become satis
fied that the company was one deserving
patronage, and they were not disappointed.
The company, particularly Mr. Lacy and
Miss Rigl, proved to the satisfaction of all,
that the many flattering notices they re
ceived were well deserved, and the expec
tations of the audience, which had been
wrought up to the highest point, were
fully realized in the faithful representations
of the various emotions and pasBionsexctisd
by the play. Miss Rigl charmed the audi
ence from the start and carried it with her
through every scene to the end of the play,
by her realistic representations. Mr. Licy
was not less successful, and both were ap
plauded heartily and frequently, as they
deserved to be. The support was also good.

Officers Mahanny and Hogan were af
ter two bad negroes again Thursday night,
who are professional dead beats. The ne
groes, named Les Price and Wm. Warren,
were lounging around in dark places along
the levee and other places where travelers
must pass in goimj to or from the princi
pal railroad depots or wharf-boats, and the
officers very properly suspected the loung
ers of having a mischievous purpose.
When the officers nearcd them the negroes'
guilty consciences told them that they
were being "piped." They went up the
levee, pretending to be about to leave on a
boat at the stone depot, and were followed
by the officers unobserved. At Fourteenth
street they Btopped in the shadow of
building. The officers were right opposite
them on the railroad (rack, and waited to
see them go on the boat; but the boat rang
her bell to pull out, and the negroes didn't
stir. It was then the officers stopped out
from behind the cars and made boldly to
ward the evil-purposod darkies. One of the
latter, Price, stood his groundj and sought
to bully the officers, but the other ran for
dear life down Fourteenth street, followed
by Officer Mahanny, who fired several
shots, but without the desired effect, and
the negro got away. Price was fined $00
and costs by Magistrate Comings yesterday,
for being a vagrant, and was given a stay
to leave town. The officers have undoubt
edly struck the right course to prevent gar
rottings, etc., in our streets at nights. Such
negroes as Price and Warren, known vug
grants, do not prowl about street corners
and in dark shadows at night with any but
an unlawful purpose.
The Springfield Register says locally :
''The man who grumbles at the weather
shows very little judgment, especially in
this climate, and he will save himself much
vexation of spirit by always expecting the
worst and making up his mina to meet it
without losing temper. If he does this his
disappointments will always be of a pleas
ant kind." But what useless agony of mind
must such a man be in continually because
of "the worst" that never comes, and what
an intolerable old bore and croaker he
must be to others. There are too many
people in the world now who are acting upon
the theory advanced by the author of the
above, and the world isn't any better and
humanity no safer and happier because of
their being here. Every community is
afflicted with them, more or less; likewise
Cairo. They are chronic mischief-makers;
opposing progress because, to their dull un
derstandings, it is safer to stand still, they
are stumbling blocks iu the way of enter
prises which.toordioarily clearminds, prom
ise only the grandest results, because to
their narrow views fearfully taken through
thick veils of stupidity and prejudice,
they perceive only dark confusion and dis
aster in the future. Let the writer of the
above beg pardon of the men around him,
who are just now making such extraordi
nary efforts to build up their city.
Another little chapter may now be
written concerning the Zanone burglary
which occurred Sunday night and for which
young Wm, Powers and Richard L''isenhoff,
alias Wilson, are now awaitiDg indictment.
The two young fellows were caught by the
officers, just as they came over the rear
fence of the burglarized premises. They
were searched on the spot after having been
overcome, and were deprived of a young
arsenal and of what money could be found
about them, the latter amounting to about
f 23, all in coin. Mr. Zinone declared
that there had been more money in the
drawer, forty dollars in paper that he
knew of, four five dollar bills and two ten
dollar bills. The officers were puzzled to
know what became of the paper money, be
lieving confidently the thieves had not been
given a chance to drop or hide any of their
booty and had been deprived of all they
had about them. But yesterday the dis
crepancy between the amount lost and the
amount recovered was somewhat lessened
by the finding of the four five dollar bills.
Officer Mahanny had heard that young
Powers had been seen to have money since
bis imprisonment, and the officer proceeded
to devise means for testing the report.
Young Powers is a shrewd one, and the
officer was satisfied that if he went boldly
into the cell, the money would disappear in
some crevice where it would be difficult to
find. Accordingly he consulted with Dep
uty Jailor Mike Fitzgerald, and it was de
cided that the latter should go and inform
the prisoners to prepare for a change of
cells, gather up all their personal effects
for the transfer, while he went and pre
pared the other cell. By this means the
object was effected, and when soon after
Officer Mahanny was unexpectedly ushered
into their presence and searched them, he
was gratified to find, in a secret pocket in
Powers' pants, four fiv8 dollar bills. The
two ten dollar bills were not found, but as
Powers bag had ample opportunity to dis
pose of them since his imprisonment, it is
probable that he did so.
After suffering seven years with joint
trouble, J. Carr Moody, Esq , Vallejo, Cal ,
whs cured by St. Jacobs Oil, the great pain
cure. THE LIGHTS O' LONDON,
to be presented at the Opera House Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29 and 30
and Dec. 1, with special matinee Saturday
afternoon, is, without question, the grand
est affair not only in the spectacular line,
but in point of first-class acting and a plot
of thorough, unwavering Interest and
power. It consists of six acts, and even
with the must constant, rapid moving of
scenery it takes about four hours to render
the entire drama. The curtain rises just
exactly at eight o'clock, and it behooves
all to be on hand early, that nothing of the
wonderful stage mechanism and delightful
stage sets may be lost.
Capt. Shields has written tho manage
ment at Springfield to send one of the ex
perienced stage carpenters belonging to he
troupe here a day before the arrival of the
company, as there is much to be done
about the Opera House stage to render it
fit for the special scenery carried by the
company, and which is the province of
only those who are thoroughly up in stage
work. Everything in the way of scenery
belonging to tha Opera House will be re
moved. Among the many startling exhib
its will be the splashing ot real water,
when the men go over tho rustic bridge,
while our splendid, spneious stage renders
possible a perfect production of the park
scene at Aviogtage hall, with manor house
and keepers beautifully shown in the dis
tance; "Chatham road in snow and moon
light;" Regent park steps and bridges,"
also by moonlight, partaking or such com
plete, thorough realism as to astonish aud
aeiigni me audience.
