We regret to learn that somo of tho
barbers who ontcred into the agreement to
not shavo on Sunday aro Inclined to go
back on tho arrangement, havo dono to
in fact. These men, who havo thus craw
fished out of a good resolution, nro colored
barbers, nnd n. tho Radicals havo culti
vated in tho colored breast a spirit of hos
tility to The Bulletin, wo cannot influ
ence them to bo truo to .their word.
Thoy havo learned theso tricks of deceit-
fulness by sitting at tho feet of Mr. Munn.

The Bulletin havo been faithful to
their pledgo to not work on Sunday. We
hopo our Radical friends may Induco
their colored friends to not wander back
ward into the path of Sunday labor. Tho
preachers of tho city who profess Radical
ism should lose no time, but should make
haste to pray with thesu colored barbers.
In The Bulletin of yetorday morn
ing wo published tho following Item :
Tho houso which was set on firo but did
not burn, on Thursday morning last, had
been insured bv A. O. Toppel in a ht.
Louis uitencv. On his dManpearitncp, his
buslncts was transferred tu Satford, Mor
ris & Candce, agents.
During the day tho owner of tho house
endangered by tho Incipient conflagration
called on us to say he wns indignant nt the
implication of tho paragraph and was con
templating an action of libel. Wo called
his attention to the fact that we had not
even hinl'id that hu hud attempted to burn
his own lioute, hi we did nut, and that his
sensitiveness was altogether uncalled for.
It docs not, we take it, follow, that when
a reporter says : "Tho flro was tho worker
an incondiary," that ho wishes to be un
derstood as saying: "Tho flro was started
by tho gcntlcmao who owns tho building.'.
Too much sensitiveness is far worse than
not enough, and in this case it is particu
larly out of place in tho gentleman re
ferred to, since ho himself, on the morning
of tho Ore, said he had no doubt tho houso
had been set on Arc.
Warranted a sure cure for smoking vhlmnle.

On Friday Dr. Dunning, while passing
across Grccnlleld's ferry, saw the first pas
senger car, between Charleston, Missouri,
nnd Cairo, arrive at tho station oppo.ito
this city, on tho Cairo and Fulton road.
This road, which will bo ono of tho most
important to Cairo, is being rapidly com
pleted between this terminus and the
Aikanas line, and in Arkansas between
Little Rock and the Missouri lino. Tho
'B'ack River News 1 says: " Mr. Allen
has purchased all tho Iron to complete tho
whole net work of bis railroads, so that
thcro will bo no time lost in construction
until they are built and ready for business.
Wo aro assured by those who do know,
that the Cairo und Fulton Air Line Kail-
road of Missouri, running fn.m Poplar
Bluff to Cairo, will bo built and trains
running through by Christmas.
From an item in the Chicago 'Journal '
we learn that, at tho annual meeting of

from Cuiro to New Orloans wero confirm
ed, and Abram S. Howitt, William Tracy
and W. H.Osborn, of Now York, and W.
K. Ackcrmun, of Chicago, wero elected
directors of the company. The ratifica
tion of this ngrecmcot renders tho con
struction of the Mississippi Central tu this
