Tur. thunderstorm, night before last,
was about the severest that has visited us
for a long time. Remote peals of thunder
wero beard early in the night, followed
by vivid flashes of lightening that re
reeled the darkest cornor of our room,
and made u feel as tbougn we were
transported into the realm of ethereal
brightness. A the night advanced rain
commenced to fall, the thunder resounded
throughout tho stillness with n terrific
crash and the stroaks of lightening as they
pierced tho universal darkness sent a
thrill of horror through us. Wo wero
inclined to retlro to some church, there to
bewail our insignificance. Wo recovered
ourselves however, nnd determined to do
penanco at tho earliest opportunity. Tho
rain fell all through the latter part of tho
night and ceased about ten o'clock next
day. So far ns wo havo learned, tbero
was no damage dono in the vicinity of
Cairo.
Mr. and Mrs. Gkorue Ku.is reside on
19th street. Tho aforesaid Mr. and Mrs.
Ellis are what are familiarly called Amer
ican citizens of African descent; in other
words their skins aro a shado darker than
tho blackest thunder cloud thut ever dark
ened the horizon. From demonstrations
mado yesterday about noon, it appears
that the conjugal stato of the abovo men
tioned couple is not of tho peculiar kind so
inspiringly portrayed by poets nnd ro
mance writers, but showed conclusively
that thoy view lifo and nil its relations
from n purely practical stand point. On
this occasion thoy allowod their iro to raise
to such a pitch ns to entirely ignoro tho
plighted vows of duys gono by, ond went
for each other in a truly puglistic style.
After a few gallons of prospiration had
poured from their ebony faces and several
pounds of wool had been flung to the
breeze, Mrs. E. gatherod an ax and drovo
the partner ot hor sorrows from tho field
of carnago, leaving her the proud victor
and possessor of all the spoils.
CAIRO
l From the Paducah Kentuckian.
We spent last Sunday in Cairo, and wo
confess that wo enjoyed oursotf greatly.
Wo met numbors of friends of Aufd
Lang Syno who received ut cordially
end treated ut with the greatest courtesy
and attention. But thisis a characteristic of
the Culroltes ; they aro u generous, whole,
souled people, and lack no qualities that
constitute gentlornon. and wo shall grate
fully remember their kindness to us.
In our porambulatiout wo wore struck
with tho many substantial improvements
that wero In progress in overy portion of
tho city, ana tho livoly business appear
unco it is assuming. During tho war,
Cairo sprang up in rapid mushroom
stylo, and at the closo nf tho war, and tho
reaction took place, tho people fult that
they bad boon but little benefitted by it.
The prosent growth of the placo promisos
to bo healthy and strong, howevor, and
upon the completion of tho many rail
roads which are in couno of construction
to that city, a moro rapid growth of the
place and increase in business and popula
tion may bo lookod for. If indefatigable
energy, Indomitable perseverance, and tho
largest liberality will build a city, tho Gal
roitos are bound to have It, and that
shortly.
Wo visited the Bulletin office, nnd
found It one of the largest, finest and
most comploto nnd compact offices In the
western country. Oberly ha a six
cylinder, a Universal, Gordon, nnd a
Llborty press, nil propollod by a beauti
fully furnished and highly Improved
steam ongino. Attached to tho establish
ment is an oxtensivo book bindery. Tho
Bulletin Is a crcdltabto paper, is on a
firm footing, nnd owes its present pros
perity to tho unflagging efforts of Mr.
John Oberly.
Wo mot that Impcrturbnblo wag and
good nalurcd old cuss, Moso Harroll. nnd
had n hearty 'nugh nnd an entertaining
old tlmo with him. Moso is publishing
