Two or three days ago it was bruited

formed U roicuo the deluded and de

"Tray, Blanche, Hwocthtnrtj and All,"
were yelping "Albright" lu every, store
and office, and upori every street obrilcr
in the town. Lopklng at this condition
of affairs, my1 better Judgnicht, asthavo
said, taught mo that then I was not tho
tlmo for defense, and that this minjaturo
tempest would soon, In tho nature of
things, expend its fury. Event which
have since transpired, -aonvlqce mo of
tho wisdom of that judgment!'
Now, that tho statement of the tn oilier,
made in my absence, und, jn tho pr'es
ehco of Messrs, M.. B. Ha r roll and A. B.
Saflbrd, and tiio deposition of the uc
gress, Jane Smith, who nureed the
mother from the tlmo of her arrival hero
until a short time after tho birth of tho
child, havo been published, It is a duty
which I owe alike to tho public and my
self, to submit a statement of those facts
connected with the matter of which I
While at Jonesboro, some time since,
the motherof the child, Miss Cummlngs,
applied to me for advice, aud spoke of
begining legul proceedings against Mr.
Harringer, but expressed her belief that
ho (Mr.JJ ) would euro for hnr, without
resorting to measures which would nec
essarily lead to publicity. I advised a
compromise, ifsuch could be made, and
accordingly saw Mr. B. and stated tho
proposition which Miss C. had made to
me; ho expressed himself perfectly will
ing to do everything necessary to the
well-being of Miss C. : that oven tho sus.
ficlon of scandal nifght be prevented,
heard nothing further of tnecase until
I was informed that Miss Cummlngs was
in Cairo and desired to see me. I called
upon hor at the corner of Second street
and Commercial avenue, In compliance
with her desire, and the request uf Mr
Bar ringer, tho latter stating that ho
wanted mo Iosco that sho way mado com
fortable, anil that sho was well cared for
After tho birth of tho child, I received u
letter from Mr. Jones, statlngthaton tho
subsequent evening ho would send somo
one for the child; that arrrangumcnt
had been mado in Union county through
which It would vbo properly cared for.
Tho following oveulng, (Tuesday) a
young man whoso face looked fumillar,
uutWi)OMO namo I did. not know, icaed
at my offlco and 'presented a letter from
Mr. Jones, stating that tho bearer had
como to take tho child to Jonosboro, and
requested mo to see that tho police ofll
cere did not prevent him from conveying
tno inrant to tlio cars. Tins l loui.tno
young man I would do; and was acconK-
lugly waked at three o'clock, cones
day morning, and repaired to tho house,
where I found the Infant, neatly and
comfortably arranged In a largo basket
Tho young man took tho basket contain
ing tho Infant, and I accompanied him
uo Commercial avenue as far as Fourth
street, where be was joined by another
person, a stranger to me, wuora the
young man, carrying tho basket, said
was tho baggageman, with whom he had
arrangements made to convey the Infant
to Jonesboro. When the baggageman
met him, I was told that tho Infant would
bo Immediately placed on tho train and
that my services were no longer neces
sary. I then left them and immediately
went to my ofllce. This was the last I
knew of tho matter, supposing, as did
the mother of the child, that It was taken
to Jonesboroj .'nntll I was accosted by Mr.
Saflbrd, the gentleman upon whoso
steps it had been left, and by whom I
was accused of being engaged In leaving
the child at his door. Tnls I deniod ; but
frankly told him all I know about It,
and telegraphed Immediately for Mr.
Jones. Three hours later Mr. Jones ar
rived. He stated that tho namo of tho
young man whom ho sent for tho child
was Berry; that ho formerly lived some
two or three years In Cairo, and believes
he was engaged while living hero in driv
ing a dray; that Berry was solected be
cause ho was acquainted here, and was
paid to take the child to Jonesboro, aud
from there, eight miles west, in tho coun
try, where arrangements had been made
for a Mr. Bos tin and his wife to raise It.
Mr. Jones I know to bo an upright, fair
minded gentloman, and no one who
knowa.hlm will Impugn tho motives he
was actuated by, throughout tho wholo
affair. Had Berry acted In accordance
with the instructlonsof Mr. Jones, tho tin-
fortunateaflalr would havenoverassumed
its present aspect.
I submit this, In all candor and sinceri
ty, to tho just-minded of tho people of
Cairo. Tho news of the disposition of tho
infant surprised noone moro than myself.
Tho trouble and aunoyauco to which It
subjected Mr. Saflbrd, though I protest
through no instrumentality1 of miue,
oaunotbe regretted moro by that gentle
man than by myself. To destroy, or to
attempt to destroy, the happiness of any
man's household, he ho who he may,' by
the remotest act of mine, Is not within
the domalu of my thought; that the
Infant should bo left at his door, because,
he being wealthy, It would be more
likely to be cared for, is absurd, when it
Is a fact kafowa that Mr. and MrsiBoaton,
living outside of Jonesboro,' In Union
county, had been paid, ,ere the removal
of 'the infant, for its care rand nursing;
and where, also, the mother so, soon, as
her physical condition would permit,
might satisfy hp rinaturali.deh;e of being
near uie cnupvjiy ifieuqiy oruces in
the premises were outraged and my con
fidence grossly abused. lr

Wo do not regret that our editorial
brethren are furnished a view of Cairo
at Its worst. Tho rivers have been bank
full for weeks, giving us our usual supply
of sipc-wator; nnd to this slpe-water has
been added a seventy-two hour fall of
rain. Fully fifteen inches of tho depth
of tho collections df4 water noticeable In
tho unimproved portions of the city were
added by tho rainfall of Monday aud
Monday night. Notwithstanding this,
our visitors seo tho city freo from any
actual annoyance and Injury, along the
oven tenor or her ways, high-headed and

itations like the present, that tho foolish
