Yesterday, in tho pursuit of knowl
cdge,Jvo caught a glimpse of n floating lo
cal over our head, and by a frantic oflbrt,
caught it. It runs to tbo ofloct, that a
gentleman named M. B. Harroll is to tako
a prominent part in tho imposing cere
monials and barbecue to be held on tho
approaching first of August. Wo havo
often besought M. B. U., with tears in our
oyes, to change his erroneous theological
views, and put himself under tho minis
terial guidanco of tho Rov. Mr. Shores.
Novortholess wo warn him against "on
tangling alliances" of a polomlcal char
acter, but havo llttlo doubt that his child
liko docility, under tho auspices of his
spiritual instructor, will carry him safely
through tho trying ordeal; after which
his theology will, no doubt, be of a less
mixed character than heretofore.
This is a question lo which wo deslro
an answor : Has the city laborers, or men
having contracts with tho city to build
sidewalks, the right to gobblo approprl
oto sell givo away, tbo lumbor that is
taken from worn out sidewalks? If they
havo not, how and by what
authority doos u negro toamstcr
named Jenkins, a brother of a negro
sidewalk contractor of tho sumo name, ob
talu tho old lumbor? Ho does obtain it
and soils it, or gives it away and charges
for tho hauling. Ho may havo propor au
thority for this, but as wo do not remem
ber any action of tho council in referonce
to this matter, wo should liko to havo just
a ray of light thrown on this subject. If
Jenkins has purchased this lumbor, all
right; and if ho is selling tho lumbor un
der instructions of tho city authorities, all
right too; but if Jonkius, tho
sldowalk man, is allowing his brothor
to tako this lumbor without authority, and
that brother is selling that lumbor, and
that Jenkins and that brother aro putting
into their pockets tho money arising from
tho sales of that lumber, all wrong. Wo
aro willing to allow our colored fellow
citizens to mob Grooloy men, and to in
dulge in all that sort of amusemont, but
wo want all city officials and omploycs,
colored as well as whlto, to toto fair; and
as this sldowalk business has harrowed up
our soul a littio wo require light. Wo aro
sure Jenkins is as wlnto as snow, so far as
honesty is concerned, but we would feel
hotter If wo could only havo this lumber

It was Squlro Bross' turn yosterday

Thomas McMahon, having loo eagerly,
and too lengthily fastened his gazo upon
tho insldo bottom of a glass, was requested
to fork over $2 and tho costs; pleading
guilty, and having nary red, he was ex
horted to leavo tho limits of Cairo In ono
hour's time, or bo jugged. He went.
Wm. Moore, Henry Tlayi, Win. John
son, John Taylor, Lenn Ranson, charged
with vagrancy. After hearing tho ovi

mood, didn't strain tho quality of mercy,
and as sickness was pleaded, tboy wero dis

At tho aftornoon senion, Myers and

Previous lo her trial, howevor, tho unfor-

Tho obeso Frances Hcno, was now
called upon to answor tho chargo of keep

a chango of venuo to Squlro Shannessy,
which was not granted. She gavo a great
deal of lingo. Judge Bross having to
leavo at this juncture, McIIalo took the
bench. She argued, or tried to do so, that
a lono woman ( I ) could not bo guilty of
committing fornication, and gave an im
mense deal of lingo. Windsor castlo was
taxed in her person to the amount of $14
and costs; total 18.GU. Judgment ren
dered, and IC days time given for pay

Capt. Hambleton, of Mound City,
was in Cairo yesterday. He informed us
that tho Liberals of our sister city are
making arrangements for a grand poll
raising on Saturday next. A splendid
Grooley flag has been purchased, and will
bo flung to tho breeze at three o'clock on
that day. At night thero will bo a bon
firo, and speeches, and cheers, and lots of
enthusiasm. Tho Mound City Liberals
aro in earnest and intend to labor for sue

Tho Grant negroes aro determined to
drivo out of tho city, by tho pressure of
social ostracism, if not by violence, nny
negro who shall dare to ad vocato t ho cause
of Greeloy and Brown. An abolitionist
in tho South before the war advocating
tho freedom of theso lato slaves, was not
in a moro uncomfortable or oven danger
ous position than a colored man in Cairo
would bo to-day advocating tho causo of
Horace Oreoloy, tho fathor of tho Rcpub
lican party, tho best friend tho negro
ovor had. The fuct is, most of tho bluck
men uro led by Munn, Popo and their
prejudices. Thoy cannot read. They do
not reason. Thoy aro creatures of impulse.
It is Muun's interest and Popo's to have
tho negro voto cast solid for Grant in
Cairo, so that thoy may claim that they
descrvo tho credit for this fact, and get
their reward in tho shapo of offices from
tho administration. What good Munn's
or Pope's advancement will do tho negroes
of Cuiro, neither Munn nor Popo can tell ;
but still thoy will voto theso unrea
sonable and unthinking black men as
If they owned them. Using Gladnny and
Bird and Scott paying theso mon motioy

a slight twist of tho wrist, will compel all

Cairo, July 17, ib'i.
Dear John :
There appeared In your local thl morn
ing a statement, ui follows: "Sonic of our
dealers are charging ten cents for live toma
toes" Now, John, we know you intimately;
know your de-Ire to benefit all your reader,
without regard to color or hapc (inav Ihev
grow fat. and tlourih through your effort)';
wo al-o know that vou sometime vary from
the truth; sometimes maguil'v it: sometime
cut It hort. The tomato buliies I a clear
cac or cutting short, and you therebv rul-ed
the ire of the houekeepcr ngaln-t lfie tom
ato .-eller, begat Ill-will, Ac; unkind feelings
between them, und done much harm bvvour
Let us lllu-trate. Should we make the
unqualified aertion that John H. Obcrlv
got drunk, and top at that, we hould ha'o
stated a simple fact; and people, especially
religion people, would be horrified, und su
pect you of iii'Inci rlty; but had we haw
gone lurthcr and added: on Wel-s Beer, you
would not haw sulfered In their cteem. .-io
with the tomatoes. Had vou havo stated In
addition, with tho same appearance of truth
as you began, Unit live tomatoes equal one
quart; that of every bushel of tomatoes, one
half rot; that one-half or the balance are sold
"on tick," und posted to the account of P. &
L., the remainder bringing ten cents per
quart, amounting to eighty cent, and that
the dealer thereby loses one dollar and
twenty t ents per bushel, you would have
conferred u bfe.lng to both sides to the
dealer, because lils misfortune was com
miserated ; to the housekeeper, who would
have been made happy and contented be
cause of the dealer's lo?, and you could
more easily have brought lliem under the
iulliienei! of your religion- teaching, there
by rendering your path more llowery.
Having pointed outthewayvou"longhavu
sought," Ac., we Irust that In the future we
shull have no further caue to animadvert
upon what we cannot help but regard us
us pure, unadulterated, d d maliciousness
on your pari.
A ours In the cause of justice and the whole
truth, to help u JOSH.
Wo can, of course, hold no controversy
with this profane mon. Wo havo nuvcr
yetdono so, and can't nt this lato day.
Why should wo bo thus maligned? Why
should wo, who novor look upon tho wine
when it red, bo by this tomatoo speculator
charged with U'clsbeori.h Inebriety?
Can wo not, without insults of this kind,
call attention to tho tomatoo trade? But
wo wero born to sulfur unmerited abuse
und wo know how to do It with dignity.
Wo thereforo beg leavo to say to "Josh"
that ho's an unmitigatod humbug a deal

If ho can't, wo should liko to usk him why

There is a great doartli of tenement
houses in tho city of Cairo. If
somo of our mon of capital could bo in
duccd to build good, neat, substantial
hotisos of small dimensions, about tho
Fourth ward especially, it would, wo are
siiro, prove a good investment, nnd bo an
inducement to worthy mechanics with
families to settle horo. Such a movement
will very soon become un imporativo ne
cessity. Moderate rents, well paid, would
bo nssured, und tho character of tho town
would bo onhancod by tho settling in our
midst of intelligent, respcctablo futilities
who pass by us. This, too, Is a considera
tion which should havo n powerful bonr
ing on tho movemont.
