COTTON MAN UFA CTUJIES.
It appear from tho report of the associa
tion of cotton manufacturers, that tho total
consumption of cotton hy the mills of the
I'nitcl r?tatu during 1808 reached about 450,
OOO.OQO pound, or 1,000,000 bale of 450
pounds onch, and of this amount the southern
states consumed 38,000,000 pound, or 83,000
Tho number of cotton mill in the northern
states is at present CO t, running 0,359,020
spindles, nnd consuming annually 386,052,021
pound of cotton, while thero nro In the south
ern tatos eighty-six mills, running 225,003
spindles, and consuming annually 31,415,750
pound of cotton. In tho northern mills each
ipindlo is made to piu, on an average, sixty
pounds of cotton a year; while in tho south
ern mill each one spin KI8 pounds, showing
thnt u coarser ipiullty of good is manufac
tured nt the south. There are, altogether,
nearly 100 fewer mills In operation than there

TJIJJ LA TK CITY ELECTION.
Tho triumph of tho democratic ticket In tho
recant municlpul contest, affords our demo
cratic cotemporaries everywhere tho sheer
est satisfaction. Although not provorbtnl for
our modesty, wo felt "tho crimson flush" dis
tinctly, on rending the following personal
from tho pen of our over-partial friend of tho
Missouri 'Democracy,' an nblo democratic
journul published at Cape Girnrdcnu. Ho
say a :
Tho municipal elkctlon in Cairo resulted in
k grand triumph for the democracy of tho
Daltit City. Hy no means the,loast benefit of
this triumph whs tho selection of John Ii.
Oberly, the urcomplUlied editor of tho Cairo
Kvoning IJulletin," for the ofUco of mayor.
A u forcible and scholarly writer as an un
terrified and unterriflable democrat Mr.
OUrly hus few emmls unci no superior. Hu
is an ublo and nn honest man, and of course
will make an ublo and honest officer. Cairo,
under his administration, will f.o hotter and
more prosperous days than she hns seen In
lato years. The sumo courage that'eowod tho
blustering and braggart Logan, when sur
rotindod bv thousands of his lmrtv rouirhs
last numm'sr, hy proKsing U nuttlu their uif
iMrences on tho fighting lino, will kxep corrup
tion away from the city treasury. On tho
whole, wo congratulate tno goou peojuo 01
Cairo on their oxcellent mtnso in selecting Mr.
Olierlv for their major, and 'oni:ratulate

Tho olectlon for municipal olllcers of Cairo
took jilace on tho C3d of February. The
democratic ticket was triumphantly elected.
John It. Oberly was tlio regular ueinocrHiic
nominee fur mayor. His opponent wus
Thomas WiUon, a democrat of popularity.
Tito contest wat u nharp and hitter one, and
the bolter and republican ?ngulnely count
ed on defeating tint regular democratic nom
inees, and Mr. Oberly In particular; but
thev were sadly disappointed. The democrat
stood by their organizati. n. Mr. Oberly was
dected'by n majority of 5G, and his frionds in

From the CuluinUu 'Innpatcli.'J
At the last charter election John H. Oberly,
wlitor of tho 'liulletin,' was elected mayor.
AVe seldom av anything pro or con in regard
to the local atlalf of other cjtle than our
own, but we cannot refrain from congratulat
ing our Cairo neighbors on their choice. Mr.
OWlv lmi nolltlcal tact, nnd Is a bold and
fearle writer, an admirable oxecutlvoolUcoro
and will make an independent mayor, in
this selection the people of Cairo have paid a
deserved and Miwtantinl compliment to tho
press, and one which we hazard nothing in
saying will rodound to the honor and material
proprltv of their city.
Mr. OWlv was elected by tho democrats
over tho combined opposition of radicals and
sorehead and woak-kneod democrat.
Damocrat votod for Uaker to-day, who
never had and novor oxpect to hnven lawsuit
in their lives, because they thought It advisa
ble to have u Judge in tho city. This Is ft

judge, is of no consequence, except it becomes
desirable to suo out a writ of titibea eorput
A half dozen cases of this kind do not urne
