Cairo's levees wore unhurt by the
wicd and waves of last evuuing. The wind
blew from tho north aud the waves struck
the Cross levee aud part of the Ouio levee

the barges and bags and well watched by
men. Report from all around after the
wind had nearly subsided last night was to
the effect that all was well.
The Vienna Times says "grave lears
are entertained for Cairo's safety" aud it
sincerely trusts they may bo groundless.
It gives us much pleasure to assure the
Times that the fears are entirely ground
leas. The people of Cairo who know the
virtue of levees and the several mcn.s
employed in former years to buttle against
the flood, have never entertained grave
fears for their safety. OMy those kind
hearted ibeoolo who wish Cairo well and
do not know her pluck and the temper of

An exchange very truthfully says that
a town is not built up unless its citizens
build it with all their heart. Tuey must
become inspired with faith that there is a
bright future for it. Every one must lend
a helping hand to further cn the good work
that it may be made what it is desired to
be, or what it ought to be. There must bo
a local pride a local public opinion which
molds the seutimeut th tt must predomi
nate if permanent prosperity is had. There
must not be too much hesitation in making
sacrifices, in the faith that the town will
have a better future.
In special locals appears a notice an
nouncing a sale of household gds at th
residence of Mr. Auur, on Walnut street.
Mr. A. contemplates Ioaving Cairo in a
week or two f. r Hartford, Conn., his former
home, where he will assume the position of
superintendent of agencies of the Connccti
cut General Life Insurauco company, a very
lucrative position which has been repeated

five year?, being in the employ of Ualliday
Bros, all the time and inakiog many
friends among our p oplo, who will all re
gret his departure from among them.
Tho Junbenterhenkins of the Argus
seems to have a very modest idea of what
is generally known as a government ration.
One of the gentlemen who had charge of
the distribution of rations on the Carrie
Caldwell, stated when here a few days ago,
peaking of the five hundred rations left at
Metropolis, that" the distributing officers
understand the five hundred rations to be
sufficient for five hundred people for ten
days. If this were Russia instead ef the
great and glorious homo of the free, the
Argus man would not have dared to express
his contempt for tho goverment's charity,
even in so obscure a manner as he did last
evening he would have ben condemned
to huntjenterbjukim in Sibjrii f ir the re
mainder of his days.
Senator Vorhees is in favor of free
postage for newspapers. Whether men an
act should be adopted we arc not just n w
prepared to Buy, but publishers of new-pa-
should be relieve 1 from paying tho p ast
atic. The law, whereby the subscriber was
made to pay the postage, should be restor
ed. It is now paid by the publisher, and
Is a tax on him. Si far as wj know, this
Is all congress his done for newspapers.
In all the bcheiuus for protections, the news
paper man is overlooked, or forgotten; at
least ho is not "protected." Congress
should be the last body in the world to tax
newspapers. Iuasmuch as newspapers have
made many congressmen, and somo of
them out of very poor material, it is about
time they do something for the"ir creators.
Turn about is fair play.
A slide occurred in tho M und Ci :y
levee yesterday morning, in the b ick levee,
near the jail, cuising much excitement
among the people for awhile. But prompt
action prevented further dam ige then. A
telephone message was sent here for bagi,
and the mayor forwarded them immediate
ly, offering at the same time men ami ma
terials to help the people up there tight the
water, which were tlnukfully declined,
however. During the strong wind list even
ing the situation in Mound City became
very critical. The water is up to the top
of the levee and .the Waves were dashed
agtiriBt the bulkhevlinj with gre.it force,
whilo water was fljwia freely th ough the
levees in many places. But the people
were tlguting nobly, and at last accounts
last night they were still masters of the
situation, with a fair prospect of rem lining
States Attorney Leek took the only
"trick" that was taken In the circuit court
yesterday. Tho negro Willis Love, who
had been previously tried and acquitted
upon the charge of playing i confidence
gamo on Mr Albert Smith, was charged in
a second indictment with a similar i dense
against Mr. L uis Cahey. The negro came
to Mr. Cuhey's home and said he had been
sent there by Mr. Smith, with a load of
wood. To repeated protests that he must
be mis aksn, ho replied that he was sure he
was right aud insisted upon biingingthe
wood to Mr. Cahey. He was finally pre
vailed upon, however, and left. Shortly
after he returned, sayiug that he had sold
the wood to Mrs. Parsons across the way
for l, but, Mr. Parsons not being at home
and Mrs, Parsons not li iving tho i x .ct
change, the latter hid nouosted him to
come to Mrs, Caluy and auk her to ndv tnce
half a dollar, the balance due him, and
that Mrs. Parsons would p ty her as soon a:
Mr. Parsons came home. Mrs. C diey gave
the scoundrel half a dolhr and discovered
soon after how nicely she had been duped,
for the negro had no wood, of course sold
none te Mrs. Parsons, etc., etc. This was
(he story as told by the witnesses for the
prosecution, and the rascal was fruul
guilty and given eighteen months in the
"pen." Tho next esse taken up was that
of a negro named Young, one of a trio v,ho
had burglarize! the cornmeal mill of
Messrs. Wood & Bennot, and btolena quan
tity of flour. I lie pros cuiion presented
its case and had concluded the ex imin itii n
of Col. Wood when court aiij urned until
this morning. Young's pirtuers in the
crimo were Jerry Cox, who pleaded u lty
soma days ago, and one Lee, who is out on
This fact shouldtbe strougly impressed
upon the minds of our neighbors who are
victims of the present flood: There's uo
luck about Cairo's escape from a similar
fate; but 'twig work timely, well-directed
and expensive work, and a good ileal of it,
performed long before as well as just be
fore the water again reached the tops id
our levei 8 that saved Cairo from the same
dirt calamities in which her many sister
cities above, below and around her are in
volved. During the l ist two ye rs not less
tuun fifty thousuud dollars w s spent ou
the levees around this city, by the city
government, the Cairo Trust company aud
tho Illinois CV-ntral railroad company.
Cairo did not, like some other communities
better (?) Bituated than the
with respect to the nver,
let her energies subside with the fl od of
'82, nor yet with that of '83; she ilid not
follow the example of the man in the leaky
cabin, m-ide famous in "The Arkansas
Traveller." But she acted upon the theory
th it what wis is likely to be again end,
after defending herself in true Spartan stjle
agaiust these two overwhelming 1! ods
coming out victorious in both, though s lit
tle disfigured in the first set-to, she set im
mediately to vork f rti Tying herself agaiubt
tho next onslaught anticipating even a more
powerful attack than ever, by preparing
bulworks that would effectually withstand
a much greater force thin that exerted by
tho floods of the two previous years. The
anticipations were justidid at points above
her, but not here tor while th fl od of '84
will bo the "high-wiiti.T m irk" at all points
above here, at least for a year to come,
here the fl o 1 of '83 continues to beur
that distinct! u; and heucu G uru's fortifica
tions were not tested to the extent it was
expected they would be, and not near to
the extent of their real, standing strength.
The result so fur is n u :h better than was
expected, and our people may rejoice over
their third victory in a contest with the
elements, more signal than either of the
others. While the waters hive not yet sub
sided, the levees hivo been tested all they
are likely to be ou th s occasion, for the
river lias stood at over forty feet for nearly
three weeks now, and at over forty-five feet
for ten days.

St. Lotis, Feb. 22. Editor Joseph Mc-
C'lillagb has ceased to pull In harmony with
the mauagers of the (ilobe-I)einoerat, and
the rudderless manner In which that sheet

At this critical juncture, a second Joseph
Joseph Pulitzer appears ou the scene

first Joseph be of the coal of many pollt

great puragraplier and dlsorganizer, who
will tlnd a more congenial field of labor on

Leigh and John, his son, are soon to be tried
for the murder of John Ui-aby, in October,

witnesses have suddenly! appeared whose
testimony It Is claimed, will prove tho
supposed brutal murder to have been only
a Justifiable homicide. Why these wit
nesses did not appear at the coroner's In
quest Is tnt explained, and the impression
prevails that there is a close connection be
tween the defendants' purso and the wit
