THE CAIRO DAILY BULLETIN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1871,
DEATH OF MRS. THOS. WILSON,
On Sunday lout, nt 4 o'clock p.m., Mrs.
Wll'on, wife ofcx-Mityor Thomas Wilson,
dieJ at btr rcsldcr.co In this city after a
long nnd very painful illness. Tho do
censed wni n lady pojscsicd o( nn original
nnd wcll-oultivated mind, und had for
many yenrs lorn n resident of Cairo. Sbo
will bo mourned by a host of warm per
sonal fricndi. Slio was, wo believe, a cou
of Hon. S. 8. Marshall. Her remains
were yesterday taken to Shawncetown for
now tiikt take is the trjtwAnr trav
eler where are tub t-olice?
Tho runner of n certain hotel of this
city that is to say, tho man who tea the
runner of n certain hotel of this city (he
has since been discharged) boardod tho
steamer Illinois ono day last week, Just as
It landed nt the wharf, and looking
around for a victim settled upon an unpro
tected famalo nnd importuned her to ac
company him to tho hotel ho represented.
The lady was vory anxious to go forward
on her iournov but was informed by
tho runner that sho could
not do 10; that the train
on which sho should have cone to
wards Chicago was already on its way j
that sho could not learo (bo city until the
ncxtday; that ho would take her to a ho
tel, see her comfortably and cheaply cared
for and bo particular to have her at tho
dopot In timoto tako the train she desired
to go out on. The lady was "taken in,"
and accompanied tho runner pastthe train
she should have taken, and which was
waiting to receive the passengers from the
Illinois, to tho hotel he represented. Tho
next day sho ascertained she
had beon culled, and, having
her sharo of pluck, determined to have the
runner who had docoived hor punished
Sho rondo application to Judgo Bross, who
Informed her that nothing could be done
with tho runner under the ordinances
and, after a futilo attempt to induco some
body to aid her in tho attempt sho was
making to bring the runner to punishment
If Judgo Bross is right in his belief that
tho hotel runners of tho city hnvo a license
to abuse tho con&donco of travelers, impor
tuno them to "Hoover," and decoive tbom
by misrepresentations and lies, tho council
should loso no time in remedying the defect
In tho ordinances; but wo believe tho
Judce is mistakon. Tho ordinances vide
no rcvJiod ordinancc.provide that
if a runnor shall be guilty of vexing, dis-
turbing ormioruniny strangcrs,Jtravelers
or citizons, ho shall pay a flno of not less
than $5 nor moro than $50, and the police
magistrate may, in his discretion, entorup
as a part of tho judgment, the
forfeiture of his license Under
this soction, it seems to us, tho runner wo
aro speaking about might havo beon pun
ished. Ho importuned tho woman and
deceived hor, and sho would havo been a
competent witnoss to prove this fact. But,
as we havo said, if under the ordinances as
thoy now stand, runners cannot bo pun
ished for an nbuso of their position, tho
ordlnnnco should, in this particular, be ro
pairod. Tho good name of the city do

HOW MUCH WE KNOW AIIOCT IT AND WHY
WE DON'T KNOW MORE.
Tho Pulaski Patriot says the Cairo
newspapers "soom to bo in possession of
full particulars substantiating their faith
in the immcdiato building cf tho Cairo nnd
Vinccnnes railroad," nnd adds : "Wo see
rto reason in tho world why tho Cairo pa
pers may riot bo posted, for cortalnly
Messrs, Hurd, Ualliduy aud others there
know the exact condition of affulrs,and can
tell tho truth about it if they will. We
can see no reason why thoy should keep
tho people ignorant of tho facts, and yet
thoro is vory general belief that those gen
tlemon know moro than they nro willing
to divulge, and some oven express the be
lief that they aro with Burnsldc, Raum
nnd others, dotormincd to do nothing until
such tiino as tho creditors of Dodge, Lord
& Co., shall voluntnrily come forward and
offer a clear rccoipt for all demands." Wo
do not know what Messrs. Hurd and Hal
llday know abouttho C. & V. road. Theso
gcntlomcn, in so far as tho movements to
"build tho road nro concerned, nro to us
vory close corporations. No information
from thorn ever leaks into thesi columns,
und all our information comes from Gen,
Itnumand Dr. Mitchol, who "loak" weekly
through tho columns of their local papers.
But this wo do know, that no movement to
rob tho creditors of tho road is deterring
Gcn.Burnsido from going on with tho work.
Whatever may bo said about him, thcro is
no reason that can bo drawn from his con
duct to bclio vo ho id any thing else than an
honest man, and wo hnvo expressed our
opinion ot Messrs. Hurd and Htilliday, in
their relation to this enterprise, on 'tho
second pago of The Bulletin.

the sum of $200. He is now resting in

Burn Johnson entered the residence
of Judge Green, on Sunday night, in the
absenco of tho family and stole $40 worth
of clothing and a Smith and Wesson pis

Rev. Mr. Shores baptised Vwo re-
pentant fomalo sinners by immersion on
Sunday last. Ho buried them with tho I
Lord in tho Ohio rlvor near tho stono
depot. Quito a largo numbor of blacks
and whites, saints and sinners, witnessed
tho peculiarly interesting ceremony. It
was performed with Mr Shores' well-
known ability in auob matter, and will
no doubt stick much longer and to the
groater glory of the cause, than the
sprinkling of somo of the clerical rivals of
tho good pastor of the First Col
ored Baptist church of Cairo.
Tho Cairo Paper truthfully remarks:
"The editor of The Bulletin has in
curred tho enmity of ono of the clergymen

'persecuted for righteousness snkc," ho
has concluded to -present his 'other
cheek.' to his persecutor, and if the per
secutor 'boots it, as ho threatens to do,
there will bo for the epaco of a minute or
two, a contest not dissimilar to that which
occurred between Jacob and the angels."
In such a contest, wo should, being in
our disposition angelical, personate tho
angel and bless Jacob and touch him on
tho thigh nnd hit him on the nose and
bung his eye, etc. But, liko tho other an
gel, wo should most probably como out of
tho wrestling match second best. This
clerical Jacob weighs a ton.
