Tho city council, nt tho meeting lust
night, having under consideration tho
qunlity of the gas furnished tho cily by
tho Cairo City Oas Company, after consid
erable discussions adopted n resolution
Instructing tho city comptroller, in
conjunction with a commlttco of throe,
appointed by tho mayor, to purchnso a

might bo tested. Messrs. Schuli, Hurd
and Cunningham were appointed a com
mlttco to act with tho comptroller.
Tho masquerade ball on Thursday
night, was oven more of n success than it
was anticipated it would be. At an early
hour in tho evening masked couples began
10 arrive, nnd by nine o clock there was
eighty couple In tho hull. This, wo be
lievc, is b larger number than ever before
came together on a liko occasion in Cairo
Masks representing almost every nation
ality, and utmost every char
acter Imaginable were worn. For
more than two hgurs tho dune
ing was carried on, the gentlemen being
compelled to "go It blind " in the choice
of partners. At c'.cvin o'clock the masks
were removed, und then coma u general
rccorgnition ot friends and acquantnticcs
At half past eleven supper was served un
det tho superintendence of mine host
Rexford. Tho tables fairly groaned under
tho weight of tho good things
they bore, and it is needless
suy that all did them ample
justice. After supper danctni! was
resumed, and continued until u lute hour,
During the winter of 1870, Messrs
Walter M. Phillips and D. St. John
Memphis, Tennessee, coal dcalors, made it
contract with the Grand Tower Mining
Manufacturing nnd Transportation com
puny, to furnish them u Inrgu amount of
coal, a c?rtaln qunntity to ho dolivoroj to
them each day ut Grand Tower. During
U10 winter of 1B70 tho pricu of coul ut I
Memphis r.ui up to fubulous figures, und 1
the compuny, believing tho y hud Hindu &
bud bargain, refused to furnish Ike coal,
thereby causing Messrs. Phillips and St.
Johns to losu heavily through tho compa
ny's fulling to deliver the coal in accord
ance with the terms of tho contract.
Suit was instituted against tho company,
and last week tho cine was tried in tho
United States Circuit Court, boforo Judge
Treat, Messrs. Green nnd Gilbert, of this
city, appearing for the pluintill's, and judg
ment rendered in favor of Messrs. Phil
Hps and St. Johns forS'-!00,000. This is tho
largest amount recovcreu in unv suit over
brought in tho state of Illinois.
PjioaiiF.sor the Kkvolution. A now
light dawned upon the world witlt tho in
troduction of Plantation Hitters twelve
years ago. Drastic purgation went out
restoration and renovation came in. Tho
tho oyes of tho people were opened to tho
great fact thit tho way to curodiH-uso 'a to
strengthen nnd support its victims, not to
placo thorn at its mercy but depriving
them of tin- little strength they have. It
soon heOAine ovldcnt that a means of in
filling vitality Into tho feeble tystem, reg
ulating till- secretions, curing indigestion
and reforming 11 bilious habit of body, no
medicinal preparation then known was nt
nil coinpnriiblii to the restorative. Sinco
then hitntlrnd'i of attempt') hnvo been
made to rival tho bitters, Tliey hnvo all
failed, und the Grand Revolution in Med

stop it, for it is founded 011 tho principle,
now universally acknowledged, that phys

and lu look at tho Ftunoth surface of the
Ohio nt this point one would hardly sup
soso that navigation was suspended by an
ice gorgobut a few miles bolow hero, but
such is tho case.
A dispatch from Columbus veilerday
stated that no chuniro had occurred nt
tho gorge, and ovorvlhlni re-
mnined tho same Tho same inn v bo
said of tho uoruo in tho Ohio. Thy
Borgo ut Shawneetown is strong enough
to let wagons pass from ono sldo to tho
other with perfect safety. The Missis
sippi remains gorged in sovcral places and
tho prospects for the resumption or naviga
tion in that river nro moro distant than tho
prospects for tho opening of tho Ohio. The
rise out of tho Cumberland will do the
Ohio but little good if any at all. There
has been soma despsralo efforts made to
removo tho Columbus gorge and all have
proved fruitless, und about the only thing
that will move It Is old Father Time, "who

BUSINESS AND WEATHER. T
Tlio appearance of tho lnndlng remains
tho same and but !lttlo business was trans
acted yesterday. Thcro was three boats
receiving freight for New Orleans and one
for Memphis but ns they havo plenty of
tlmo to load they did not push things
through In much of a hurry.
1 estorday was certnlnly a vcrv pleasant
day. Tho sun shono brightly makinir the
ntinosphcro very pleasant. A few such
days as yesterday hnd certainly ought
to loosen tho gorge. Tha streets remain
in a sloppy condition from tho melted
There was several reports In circulation
yesterday In relation to the gorge and thu
boats that are In It. Ono was that the
Charles Bodmnnti had succeeded in work
ing herself out and was all right. To tho
above report wo givo but little credence
fur had It been true some ono in tho city
would have been otllclally Informtd.
The Commonwealth is securing 11 gol

Thoferrvboat, Cairo, took over on Thurs
day afternoon one hundred and eiuhtv
head of mules, which will go "outh from
Columbus by rail.
The St. Joseph is determined not to lay
idle, therefore she will run between Hick
