V e are prepared to testify Hint tho
storm of night bofore last was terrific
The darkness was mado intonso by occa
sional flashes of lighting, tho rain full in
torrents and tho wind blew almost u gale,
Listening to tho roar of tho wind, and the
rushing sound of tbo rain against tho win
dows, one could scarcely shuke off the im
pression that a second dvlugo had com
monccd. But tho rain was a wonderful
blessing. Cisterns aro replenished, tbo
water-cart business dried up, nnd tho nlris
cooled to an agreeable temperature.
We have seen a lottor nddressod to Mr
.1. U. Alotcalf of this city, by u relative
living in tho interior of Texas. Ho says
that if thore is n fair election Grooloy and
Brown will carry that state by nt lenst
00,000 votes. Ho is of tho opinion, how
ever, that n fair election will not bu per
mitted. The postmasters, acting no doubt
in accordance with instructions from
Washington, havo, for months, suppressed
or destroyed Domocratio papors. Tho
writer has recolved only two copios of tbo
Cairo Bulletin during tho presont year,
although tho paper has been mailed to
him with unfailing regularity. In this
way, and by other moans equally dis
honest tho Grantltcs hope to glvo the
electoral vote of Texas to Grant and Wil

will not prevail. Texas Is ovorwhelmingly
for Groeley and Brown and will so do

T he grocory storo of Ohonoy te Wilcox
corner of Eighth stroet and Washington
avenuo was burglarized during tho storm
night before Inst, but owing tbo awkward
ness of tho burglar no grcnt loss was sus
tained. Entrance to tho storo was
gained tiirough tho raniuom over tbo
door of an nnll-room und thenco through
n window. Tbo cash drawer Is ono of A.
O. Miles manufacture having a combina
tion ; ho burned a small hole In tho bot
tom of tho drawer with n candlo nnd thou
split n poico out largo enough to ndmit
the fingers of oao hand. This gnvo him
admission to but one compartmont of tho
drawer from which about C or 8 dollars
in city scrip and currency was extracted.
This wns tho extent of the theft. Exit
was mado through tho door on Eighth
strcot which was left open.
THE COSMOPOLITAN" CIRCUS.
Bnckcnstose's Cosmopolitan circus will
givo two exhibitions noxt Wednesday af
ternoon nnd ovening in this city. Wo no
tice from our oxebangos, that tho fame and
numo of this show havo become world wide
from tho oxcolloncy of its entortainmcnts.
Tho Cosmopolitan struck Cairo on Its up
trip, nnd created a sensation among tho
amuiemont going pooplo of this city,
Tho Cosmopolitan circus, musoum und
menagerie, of which Dr. Backenstoso is
proprietor, will givo an exhibition in
Cairo on its down river trip, on tho 2d of
October. This is tho circus which whs
hero recently, and which gnvo such un
bounded satisfaction to nil who had tho
ploasuro of bolng able to get under tho
tent. By tho wny, Backenstoso. when
you como to Cairo again, come with n tent
largo enough to bold all who want to got
in, or you will bo compelled to stay here
three or four days.
MORE NEGRO TERRORISM.
Scarcely n day paisoi that wo do not re.
ccivo indications of a purposo upon the part
of tho Grunt negroes of Cairo to socially
ostraclso and intimldatosuch of thoir class
ns havo avowed their purposo to support
tho Liberal nominees.
On tho streets yestordny wo listened to
a discussion bstwoon a Grant and Greoloy
negro, during which tho formor employed
tho following threatening langungo: "I
know old Grooloy, I know all about him.
Ho lived in Tuscumbia whnr I lived, and
mado his money bv soiling negrocH. I
say I know him, and becauso I do know
him. I'll help to tar and foathor every ne
gro in Cairo who says ho intonds to voto
To tho attompt upon tho llfo of Mr. J.
T. Alton wo hnvo referred already. Since
thou ho has boen watched tho Grant
negroes of tho city bolng manifestly re
solved that if ho doesn't vote for Grant
ho shall not llvo to vote for anybody.
On Monday last tho notorious Jake
Bradley, a negro who, for weeks at a time
has occupied a cell in our county jail un
der a charge of hog. stealing, told the Rev.
Mr. Shores that he, Shor's, wns deterred
from making a speech for Greeley in
Black Bottom, through fear; that tho
Grant negroes woro determined that ho
should not mako thospoecb, and that, if
ho overuttomptod to mako a Greeley speech
in Cairo, he, Bradley, would suo to it that
he was driven from tho stand by a sbowor
And thus day after day tbo evidences
aro multiplying that such of our colored
men as hnvo the independence, to declare
themselves for Greoloy, are to becomo ob
jects for tho hate and violenco of the
great maw of our colored population who
aro manipulated by designing whito men
in tho interest of tho Radical party.
Should these things pass un re
buked by tho honest portion of our
people should they fail to call out ex
pressions of emphatic and determined
condemnation, who shall say that tho fu
ture of tbo canvass shall not bo murkod
by doplornblo sconos of riot nnd blood -
GREELEY AND BROWN.
THE CLUn MEETING LAST NIOHT A
LA HOE AND ENTHUSIASTIC OCCA
SION. Tho mooting of tho Grooloy and Brown
club, last night, was one of tho most on
thusiustic of the campaign. Capt. W. P.
Hnlliday wns cnllod to tho chair, nnd,
thanking the nudlenco for tho honor, im
mediately announced Judge W. II. Green,
as ono of tho speakers of tho
ovoning. Tho Judge's speech
wus a ringing ono full of sting
ing denunciations of tho Grnnt ndminls-
trution, of able expositions of tho corrup
tions of its oweors, and of tho gross sins
of omission and commission which has
rondorod the government n by-word and
roproach among all intelligent pcoplo of
tho earth. Tho Judgos rovlow of tho
financial policy of tho administration, or
its class legislation, its favorit
ism and nopotlsm was masterly and
exhaustive, and nt frequent
intervals elicited uproarious rounds of tto
most enthusiastic applause His speech
consumod about forty minutes, nnd was
well received throughout.
Judge Green was followed by Hon. H.
Watson Webb in an enthusiastic and of
fectivo speech of twenty minutes duration.
Ho rocolved the marked attention of tho
audience, nnd was frequently applauded
His reference to Grant's career in Cairo"
hls drunkenness and general dissipation
was damaging in tho oxtremo, and some
thing new to citizens who located in Cairo
since the close of tho war.
