Tho soclnl party nnd dnnco given by
tho Odd-Follows ut their hall on AVcdnci
day night, tho 62d anniversary of tho or
der in America, was ono of this mot en
joyable nflnlrs of tho kind that hns over
taken place in Cairo. The company pres
ent numbered about ono hundred nnd fifty
and was composed of tho jncmbors of tho
order, their families nnd friends.
which is n handsomely furnished room of
contldcrnblo sizo, was well lighted and
well ventilated, provided with an nbund-
ar.co of chairs nnd wns In every respect
comfortablo nnd pleasant.
Tho compnny guthorcd at an early hour,
and wcro addressed by Mr. John II.
under Iho supervision of tho Daughters of
Rebokah, presented a very beautiful ap
pcaranco. Thcv wcro vcrv tastefully ar
ranged, arid wcro handsomely decorated
with flower.. Tho expectation raised by
tho tempting array of viands wcro not dis
appointed, for they proved on trial to bo
ovry particle us good as they looked to be.
After supper, the company, to the lively
and inspiriting music of

proceeded .to enjoy themselves in tho
dance. Ceremony and stiffness woro ban
ished from the rooms in fact, wo bclievo
their presence is norcr allowed in tho hall

up to the enjoyment of the hour, nnd only

Meeting or the ftoelety
Tho members of tbo Southern Illinois

to meet in the Poor Mnn's Club room, in

2nd, at seven o'clock, sharp, for tho pur-
poso of considering the propriety of per
fecting n moro permanent organization,
and devising ways and means to carry out
its purpose?, if found expedient.
"Whilo it is truo wo have taxed uurjclvcs
to our utmost capacity for railroadr, Slr.to
nnd county roads, bridges nnd other im
provement, wo havo sadly overlooked
the very importaut item of encouraging
immigration nnd wealth, to improve and
beautify our country, nnd aid us in
It would bo superfluous to say that tho
southern portion of our State, (and in par
ticular tbo four or flvo southern counties,)
for location, soil, tlmbor, rocks, nnd ore,
water nnd climate, is not surpassed by any
Stnto in tho Union.
Nature has provided us with every nat
ural advantage ever vouchsafed to any lo
cality. Hounded by two of the most prom
inent rivers on this continent; centralized
by tho Illlnol! Control rt 11 road and other
railroads in progress; timber second to
none; beautiful, clear, gushing springs of
water without number quarries of finest
lime, sand nnd marble.; iron oro sufficient,
if manufactured, to lay n rnilrcad track ten
times nround tho world, twlco told; whilo
our rich soil, if properly cultivated, would
produce enough to feed nations.
Owing to our genial clltnnto, thoro is no
country can excel ours for raising all tho
staple wheat, rye, oats, corn and to
bacco; wnllo our fruits nnd vegetables aro
far in advance of any other portion of tho
Stato nnd of superior quality it only re
mains to bring this favorlto country into
proper cultivation to mako it a second
Eden, minus tho forbidden tree.
At first view, mnny will bo surprised
that this beautiful field of naturo has
been so lung neglected, whilo others,
not half as nttmctiva havo been cultivated
for Iho last quarter of a contury. Itut as
this is foreign to our subject 1 will dismiss
It now remains for us to say whether
wo shall remain passivo nnd gropo our way
under tho shadow of our moro prosperous

Tiik Police Fokce. Ilccauso an occa

parties, Inclined to grumble now, but who
somo tlmo ago would not open their Inno
cent mouths whilo tho Ollpporlan thlovcs
infested every corner and piled their ne
farious calling, cry: "IWrlblo I "Why
don't tho authorities squolch all thlovcs ?''
Nov., oven tho blindest of theso grumblers
must seo that tho polico officers on duty n
very small forco aro doing nil thnt can
bo done to suppress thievery. They havo
worked n great reformation, but It is nn
unreasonable expectation that they shall
mako all tho crooked men walk in
straight paths. Only.throo policemen nro
on duty at ntgbt Chief Myers, nnd of
ficers, Vcrrino and Sumner, nnd, although
Myers Is actlvo always whoro duty calls
him nover backward well posted in the
requirements of his position; nnd, nl
though officers Vcrrine nnd Sumner aro
vigilant nnd industrious, tho force is too
small to do all that tho citizens demand of
tho constabulatory forco of tho city. Rut,
nevertheless, wo aro suro every ono must
sco a marked improvement in tho condition
ofaflalra slnco tho new administration
took charge of the city government. In the
thirty days, ending to-day, n greater num
ber of priioncrs havo been arrested and
convicted for violations of tho city ordi
nances than In nny other thirty days in
tho past history of tho city during five
years past. There is now n larger forco of
hardy laborers on tho chain gang than hns
been on it it in the samo period r.t an von a
time. Credit fur this result must not nil
bo given to' tho faithfulnes
of Myers, Vorrlne .and Sumner,
but also to Marshal Cain
and officer Sheehan who have been very
faithful to duty. Robberies, howovcr,
cannot bo prevented. Tho most pcrrectly
policed cities in. the world uro liable to bo
invaded by burglars, who do their mis
chief in the darknossof niuht. Rut this
wo will say, that what can bo done in tho
way of prevention the present forco will
labor to do; n larger forco is no doubt
demanded by tho nccesr itics of tho situa
tion, but a moro faithful small forco can
not bo found an v whoro.
