Gen. Longstreet has written an ixplan

nothing more than an advance step in Re
publicanism. Tho Hungarian Gypsies drew a ftir

There is the best of reason to believe
that the Narrow-gauge peoplo have not
withdrawn their finger from the municipal
pic and that they will make a brilliant
effort to capture the council at tnxt Tues
day's election. There is reason to believe
that they are only playing 'possum and that
there will bean n. g. candidate out in every
word by next Tuesday. The object is to
take the voters by surprise and to run their
fa voi ites in while the people arc trying to
find out who is and who is not their friend.
The people should be on their guard. They
should not vote for a man for the council,
nor promise to do sr, without knowing
positively that he is right upon tho main
Our fifty thousand dollar levee must
remain in safe hands. It must not be turn

poration, or of two corporations, if you
please, who, totally disregarding the first
law of nature, permit their own proper
ty t go to wreck every year, paying out
several times as much for repnira and in
loss of business each year as would bo
necessary to prevent the wreck as well ai
the interruption of traffic. The promises f
uch corporations, to maintain our magnifi
cent embankment intact against floods, arc-
chuff. W havo bad su h promises before
and the result wis a victory for the old
Mississippi, and imminent ilaner and
great t xponso to ourselves. When you ded
with ii railroad corporation you ileal with
a soiilhss thing to which written con
tracts are me.ro forms, idle vaporing to bo
obeyed and enforced if tho corporations'
interests will justify to be cast to tho
winds if tho people's interest alone are con
served by their observance. Tho voters
of Cairo should not need any warning
against doing anything that might lead to
a surrender their inobt valuable piece tf
property into the hands of one of one or
two of the mi s'. wretchedly managed rail
road corporations in th:a country. Hence

Constable John Sheehan has re'unud
from Clinton, Ivy., where he went S 'lne
days ago at the rnjuest c ftho authorities
tin re, to ferret i lit some resident I urglars
who hn 1 "i ricked'" four or five "cribs'' in

coii-i-lerable '-boodle." After taking a he.k
at the situation it became apparent that

officer had a ti u-ty negro from lit re come
down thtrc and ingratiate hini'elf into the
confidence of the suspicted partits, by pre
tending to be himself a "crook" frt sh Ik m
a successful "job"' in Cairo. Tho thing
worked well for a while. The spy gained
all the information necesMiry to satisfy thr
( I'icirs and authorities that their tuspii imis
had been well founded; but in some way it
leaked out among the su- pecti d parties that
the Cairo negro was a spy and that hmke
up the whole schtme. But the I urglars
hav left Clinton for good, which is a good
Several days ago a nero robbed a
gypsy of about $2,200 at Metropolis and
got away. An olhVer from Metropolis
came down on the Fowler Thursday and
entested the officers here in a search for the
fugitive, wlreh lesu'.tcd in the discovery of
po-itive proof that the thief had been lo re
only the day before. It seems that he
came here by the Fowler on Tuesday, left
$2,000 in cash, mo.-tly gold, with a regress
on Fifth Street, to keep f r him over night,
for which service he gave her $5 the next
morning when he took hi- money and left.
He had also paid out larger sums toother
parties and behaved generally like a mil
lionaire's pet son. He h id the money all
tied up in a cirsinglc, a description of
which tallies with that given by the gypsy
at Metropolis. But he is gone and a certa;p
young fellow hfre, who, in some way, learn
ed that the officers were on the hunt (or
the negro, is believe 1 to have had some
thing to do with his sudden disappearance,
by giving him timely warning of danger.
"Querulous,"' "f Lw Edwards, Alex

of 5,018 over the total number published
just ten years since. The increase in 1874
over the total for 1873 was 493. During

Irom 1,133 to 1,254; tho weeklies from
