-N'o member of tho legal fraternity of
Cairo Is mr co favorably known and re

subject of this biographical sketch. Slnco
a.resldont of our city, ho has never denied
his tirosonco and liboral'support to every
enterprise connected with the welfare of
Cairo. Ills profession is law, and to this
ho has consecrated hi? life, and In this con
nection wo shall apeak of him.
When quite young ho selected tho lawn
his profession, and directed his energies to
the consumation of this desirable and cx
nlted object of his ambition.
For many years ho was a student at tho
well-known law olllco of Judgo Krum, at
St. Louis. Ilcru ho devoted himself close
ly to tho study of tho oloniontary principles
of the law, and subsequently attended
that fur-fnmui and renowned law school of
Harvard University. The close application
which had characterized him as a student
at St. Louis, was pursued here; and, in a
hurl time, ho graduated with signal credit
lie removed to St. Gencvigvc, Mo., und
began to praotlco. Owing to the civil war
then existing in Missouri and St. (J no
vieve, at time threatening to bo tho sc no
ofconllict, he removed to Alton aim in
IBM to Cairo, and became a member In
the firm knuwn ns Haynlo, Marshall and
Gilbert, No fact it better known to tho
Ciiro ll.ir and citizens, than that tho bus!
ii" of this Arm was attended to almost ex
clusively bv Mr. Gilbeit.
fter the death of Gen. Hayute and tho
removal of Judge Marshall to Salem, .Mr.
Gilbert formed a partnership with Judgo
Green. Lord Cheiterrleld in one of his ce
lebrated letters to his son remarked tha1
the profouion of law should receivo nil the
cnor-jio and lime of tho lawver. Mr. Gil
bert It nut a stranger to the sayings of this
undent writer and Jurist.
Whether in the olfice, or the court room
heisduvotod to his profession. Ho is re
garded at an able, sound and safe lawyer.
IIo examines questions of law for himself
and prtotiM then, with clenness and
strength. Hi upeeche to the court or

tho inachlnory of their cxtcniivo works
from Cobdsn to this city, and are using
every possible endeavor to complete tho

removal of Peoples & Edmunds to this
city will, we predict, murk a now era in its
hi'tory. Thcso gentlemen, after tho 'oipo

business becoming extensive, aro com

to live for the unseen. Llttlo ut wo do up

Is also his blcsod privilege, if ho can only

is to recuivo Gods chas'.ouing, as
did tho holy ones of old, whoso

we may learn submission, ns even our
lilv.-sod Saviour learned it.
To iivo by sight is to live joyless and
liopelo.M when confronted by iiliscipliuo
stic-lins'thi present'sorrbx.' To live by
faith is to trust in God who knowcth our
weakness and our want and to seo His
mercy hlnlng through tho clouds of
sorrow and irradiating them with tho
lighv beyond., Wo my. nut, indeed, in
this Vorld, ho spared sorrow. Tho clouds
