We call tho attention or the drunkards
of the city, tome of whom wo class among
our misguided frlonds, to the fact that Rev.
Mr. Thayor will preach this morning on
"Tho Woes of Drunkenness." All our
efforts to win tho entire population of the
city from tho Mowing bowl have been in
vain, and wo aro glad to received a recruit
liko Mr. Thayer in our whisky-suppressing
efforts. But our labors have not
boun all in vain, and we point, in tbo
proud consciousness of having done our
duty well, to tho fact that among all our
lawyort only two get drunk, and they only
occasionally ;that among all our merchants
there is not a confirmed sot and only a
tew who tako in excess of the glass that
cheers; that our mechanics are sober, our
saloon keepers pinks of tobriety, and oven
wo editors, tempted at wo are constantly,
resist tho impulso to drink on most oc
casions, and consequently become drunk
very infrequently. Wo hope, however,
that all tho drunkards in the city may
hear and profit by the eloquont words Mr.
Thayor will speak to-day.

Wb have received the following note
from a patriotic Greeley girl of thli city :
Cairo, Ills., August 17, 1872.
Ma. John H. Oberly.
Sir: May I tako the liberty to ask a few
questions ? I am a girl only twelve years
of ago, and perhaps they may appear ri
diculous in your sight, but I am in earnest.
The drat of theso is:
"Why don't the citizens of Cairo get up
a Greeley ratification meeting 7
2. Why don't they have a Greoley flag?
Mound City baa one, and if as little a
place as Mound City can havo ono why
cannot Cairo havo one too 7
Now I havo proposition to make.
If you will, through the influ
ence of your paper, get the citlrens
of Cairo to get a ball and speak
ere, I will go round and get money
enough to buy and make a now Oreoley
flat, and present it In person.
Now, Mr. Oberly, I dare say all this
looks ridiculous to you, and, If it does, you
can drop it and say nothing more about it.
Yours Respectfully, M. C.
