The circus and the election monopoliz
ed ail public interest yesterday; hence the
scarcity of news generally. In most srty
other city the assertion that it was a very
"sober" day in every sense of the word,
would soutid paradoxical. But then, Cairo
is an exceptional and very model little ci'y
in many ways. An election and a citcus in
any other city would raise the devil yen-
erally and place special correspondents
an 1 local newspaper writers, for the time
being, aru ing the happiest creatures upon
Yesterday morning The Bulletin, in
a short item, called upon the men of prin
ciple in the Third ward to turn .out in
force and disarm the ''tlooence'' men, those
unscrupulous p litical tramps who make
an article of traffic of the franchise, extort
inn paltry sunn of money ftuin opposing
candidates, in payment for "influence''
which they pretend to have among friends.
To judge from the number of negroes who
winced under this general denunciation,
as'uming that it was meant for them, one
must' conclude that there are not a few of
these conscienceless vagabond in the Thir l
ward, and that it will take some very
heroic treatment to rid our municipal elec
tions of the curse.
Jno. B. I) iris' circm came in by speciul
train yesterday morning. There were 12
Q;it cars loaded with wagons, and six box
cars full of stock and wil l animals. They
proceeded to unload and tran-port the out
tit to the ground near the Mississippi levee,
at Eleventh Street, and in doing so broke
down several wagons and a section of the
centre pole for the main tent, besides which
there were other difficulties, all of which
so delayed them oniy the street parade
had to be omitted. The tents and
grounds were crowded with peo
ple. The circus compared favorably in
every particular with the best that have
been here. The stock was fine, so was the
outfit, and the performance, while of the
best of its line generally, presented some
features that were very superior. The
management, too, was not open to the ob
jections w hich apply to that of the general
ity of circusis. There are many strangers
in the city drawn here by the circus from
neighboring parts of the three states.
Rev. Mr. Chubbuck, the evangelist,
who has been assisting the Baptist people
in their revival meetings since Sunday, was
quite unwell last evening and consulting
a physician to-day, was advised to stop
work at once as be was on the eve of severe
nervous prostration from overwork. He has
been actively engaged in revival meetings
for nearly a year past, without rent; and
though greatly to the regret of both him
self and the church, felt it imperative to
respect his medical advisor and return
borne. Mr. nmk.Mrs. Chubbuck left via I.

no interruption on this account as Rev. V.
