already excited points to no oihcr result.

Parties engaged in the stave-cutting busi
ness in this section of tho country, have not
been very particulsr, in times past, nbout con
fining their operations to tho limits of their
own territory. Tho consequenco Is vacant
land belonging to othor parties, and particu
larly to non-residents, has paid tributo to
them in the way of its finest accossiblo tim
ber. A short time ago, a gcntloman wis nd
vlscdof tho presence of stave-splitting tres
passers upon a tract owned by him; and yes
terday ho mado a descent upon them. They
had split four or five thousand No. 1 staves,
which tho gantlanian took into his possession
and sold on his own account. This, of course,
was a great hardship, very cruel, and nil Hint;
becauso If they hadn't appropriated tho tim
ber, somebody elso would havo dono so, etc
Wo only regret that tho number of staves
seized was not fifty thousand instead of five
thousand. Tho seizure will havo a good effect,
however, as it will teach these gontry that
there Is at least risk connected with such tres
passing. A IlHHdrcd It til torn comlMsr Iss April.
Tho Illinois Stato Press Association have
detonnined upon an excursion to Mobile,
special trains on tha Illinois Central, and, tho
Mobile and Ohio Railroad having bean kindly
tendered for that purpose Tho time has not
been definitely settled upon, but tha 20th of
April has bcon suggested and soems to moot
the approval of all tho members who havo
yot expressed themsolvos. This matter will
bo settled by tho Executive com mitt e, howov
cr, and tholr action made public In duo Booson.
It is eminently desirable that arrangements
bo mado to entertain, at least for a, day, the
members of this associntion, In this city. No
less than ono hundrod newspapers will be
represented on tho occasion, and it remains
with tho cltlzons of Cairo to have our city
oxtollod, passed by in silonce, or nbusod by
ovory papor represented. Jtfow shall it bo ?
Thoro Is ample tlmo for preparation. A
clover entortalnment at tho St. Charles, a
short steamboat excursion, with such other
attentions nnd civilities ns-our ladles und gen
tlemen are capable of extending, will accom
plish tho end desired.
In u few days wo shall bo further advised,
when wo will again bring this matter to tho
notlco of our readers.
