lly reference to the Council proceeding
It will be seen that tho Citv Council
stands iquaro up to the contract tatwecn
tho city and tho Cairo end VIncennes

tho sentiments and wishes of nine-tenths
of tho tax-paycri. Wo will rlk the Impro

Alexander? and what Is tho county court's

which cnaclt tbo part of a wet nurse
toward tho people U ttllt In vogue
in Kurope, Asia, Africa and Oceanlca;
but we had a bare suspicion that what is I
generally known at the revolutionary
war knocked that theory into "a cocked
bat," in thli country, at least. Aud that
modo of thought clothed In official garb
and given utterance to by official author
ity, which treats tho public as a parcel of
irretpontibiu and brainhst boobies, is a
twin brother of the Pharntaical "1 am
holler than thou" idea and as mental ex
crescences both, should not be permlttod
to exist in an enlightened land and ago
just as a matter of prkclple.

If you aro a stranger In Cairo, perhaps
not. It Is better that you should not. She
it an excellent lump of fifty years, of mm
cleand of pugilism to not too. She was on
hor trl-monlhly drunk yesterday even
ing, and made tho leveo howl. Having
"beered' up to tho proper pitch, tho nex t
thing in order was a fight. Sbo started
for Annie Golden, a old girl,
after her own heart- ono who
would rather fight than cat. They
tackled immediately. Old Olrl No. 3 ap
peared on tbe scene to show fair play.
Round 1. Perew led out with the right
mauler, and plantod it on Golden' beak,
bringing tho claret freely, nnd making it
a floorer. Round 2. Golden on her pint
again. M ado a feint at Fort w's gob with
tho left, and got the right in on her
"lamps," bringing her on her beam-ends.
Round 3. Perow up and at tho scratch
again. Much counter-hitting. Perow nt
tempts to get a cross-buttock hold, but u
rlb-bendor from Golden, with tho rigut,
and one on tho potato-trap well delivered
with tno left, ends tho round. Round 4.
Perew groggy; Golden lots of bottom. A
few feint and Perow' knowledgo box en
ters chancery. Severe punishment for
Perew. Ono leveller from Golden in the
bread-basket and tbo mill is ended tho
sponge thrown up. Enter poiico to find
Perow In a terribly bunged-up condition,
and Golden hen of tbe walk. All parties
go to tho jail. Ills notovery dy thai wo
