OAlllO, NOl ITS CITIZENS.
Tho merabora of the Illinois press nsao'
elation who ncceptod tho hospitality of
our city, were lavish with their exfolia
tions of our goncroslty, kindness, cour
tesy, etc., and while it will afford' our
citizens much satisfaction to bo assurod
that our guests were well entertained,
till the prime object of tho effort to on
tertaln them will fall, If the "returning
of thanks" is not made subordinate to
"glances at the city, Its advantages and
surroundings." In other words: No cit
izen of Cairo was actuatod by a desire to
'got himself Into the papers." On the
contrary, they shrink from such notori
ety. What thoy did was in behalf of the
city. Bellavlng tho occasion a favora
ble one to Introduco Cairo to tho world,
they devoted themselves to that end,
and shall bo groatly disappointed if a
single one of tho city's guests supposes
that4hey with actuated by any selfish
It U our purpono to republish such jottings-down
of our visitors us speak of
the material alHiIrs of Cairo; and to ena
ble us to do this, wo ask that wo bo fur
nished with a copy of tho paper contain
ing them, as noon as may be, after its
too much Nioanit.
The abandonment of ourcolored fellow
citizens by Orccley lu their hour of tri
umph, with two foreign missions, each
to a colored man, from General .Grant,
Is strange and un accountable. Greeley
has not a word to say of thei-e ap
pointments. He is disgusted. He was
after a mission himself, and the fact
that ho is put lu J he background, while
acouplo of niggers am brought Into the
foreground, has completely taken the
conceit ami tho nigger philanthropy out
of poor Greeley. Grant Iuh given him
too much of the nigger, and wo ato that
in the Hhallow humanitarian's petty dis
appointment his nigger philanthropy
and philosophy and negro equality aro
all cant, cluptrap bosh, trash, humbug,
gammon and green cheese. The rising
negroes, therefore, would serve him right
to cut him, snub him, lecture him and
whlitle him down the wind.
ANTI-IMPERIALISM IN FJIANCE
The French legislature Is ovldoutly pre
paring to inuko a stand against the "one
man power" which tho Emperor has so
Industriously endeavored to concentruto
in tho crown. During the oslon ttto
other day M. Thiers assailed tho com
mercial pulley of nonnparto in direct
terms, asserting that the trading "liber
ties" of tho country were "like tho polit
ical liberties of tho French people a
farce." Tho President replied, which
brought on a warm agiimcut with M.
Theirs, and it was feared tho sitting
would break up lu a row. M. Quertler
claimed that tho crown had no power in
the matter' of commercial treaties, It
being vested In tho legislative ,lo(ly.

Quarrel Between Jack HawlItoa,and, the
Dispatches received from Washington
yesterday afternoon, areas follows:
Kctuoval of Clerk.
Tho work of making romovals In tho
treasury department still progresses rap
Idly, and Secretary fioutwell seems de
termined to remove all clerks whoso
services aro not actually needed as well
as thoso who aro unfitted for their posi
tions by Incompetency.
In the third auditor's ofllco alone,
nearly 300 removals havo been made, In
cluding many ex-eoldiers. While re
movals have been Impartially made, yet
whom now appointments havo been
given, of which there havo been upward
of forty, this has not been true.
A TitllniidlRbninincr (Jetsiui Ofllce.
. On yesterday, Clark oven went so far
as to appoint a man who Is an Intimitto
friend of Vallandlgham, and was a bitter
opponent to the prosecution of tho late
war against the rebels. This man, C. M.
Smith, of Batavla, Ohio, has been for
years a democratic politician, with con
siderable local prominence, and for his
opposition to the republican party, 'and
for the aid he gave Vallandlgham when
tho latter was a candidate for Governor
of Ohio in 1603, ho Is now rewarded with
a clerkship by Auditor Clark.
Secretary Iloutwell has had his atten
tion called to these facts, and Smith will
probably be dismissed against Clark's ob
jections. lMleaad Nnaford Kejccted.
Tho rejection of San ford for minister to
Spain, aud Pile for Brazil, are generally
well received by republicans here, al
though In the case of Pile it was not ex
pected. 1'craiiiinl Item.

A fierce Interview took 'place between
Jack Hamilton and Attorney. General
Hoar on Tuosduy lust, and tho following
oouversatlon Is said to havo occurred:
Hamilton "I called, Mr. "Attorney
General, to enquire whether it Is true
that you Intend to appoint Mr. for
tho Texas, ?
Attorney General "Yos, Hlr; I have
already mado out his nomination."
Hamlltou J'Thon I think it is my duty
to say (hat ho' is a bad man, and not lit
to hold the office"
Attorney General"! had heard that
you were opposed to him, and was not
surprised, us I ujso hear that you aro" go

Hamilton "Gd d nyou, oruuy man,
who impugns my political motives.
Where were you when tho war was rag
lug"? What were you dolug that Justl-
lies your blatant Unionism to-day? Dis
pensing tho only luw you know Massa

respectable Massachusetts pettifogger "In

A Theatrical Scandal Tlie Webb MUtera.
From the Detroit I'oit.J
Some tlmo since the item was floatlntr
around In the.papersthat Adal. Webb.
incupopuiar anu lasoinaung actress, anu
orieof the celebrated Webb Slstera, was
about to bo married. Later the para
graph was curreut that she had married
and retired from the stase: and later
still was a paragraph denying the last
meuuoneu repori. auiiu mi uicso ru
mors and codnter rumors, It seemed
altogether likely that the fair Ada was
not entirely Tree from matrimonial en
tunirlemcnls of some sort. And such
seems to have been tho fact, for v6 lind
on the records or tuo Wayne Circuit
Court that action was commenced on tho
20th ult.. by Ada L. Webb against John
Skac, for breach of promise of marrlnge,
aim tno uamaKes aro laiu at u.tiou.
Three cnunLs aro not un. The first is.
that Jn the city of Detroit, in January,
1SCS, tho said Ada -L. Webb and John
Skac plighted their troth. That is not
exactly tho phraseology of the legal
document, but it conveys to tho popular
mlnu a better Idea orwnat was done by
Ada aud John than would tho verbose
document of half dozoti pages of legal
cap, with Us whereas and said and a fore
saids. In fact, they made a verbal con
tract to bo married to each other within
a year, or in January, 160!). Tho sisters
were playlnguu engagement m this city
at the former date, aud Skao was most
assidlousln his attentions as u lover.
Tho first count further alleges that Ada
made this promise of marrlago in good
faith, sincerely relying upon thepurtyof
tho second part to stand by his pledges
like u man ; that sho then expected to
fulfill her promise, and was ready to do
ho, uud has been ready over since, The
second couiit charges the unfaithfulncs
of SkueandseU forth that whereas the
plalntlH was ready at tho time agreed
upon to bo married, und has been ready
over since, the defendant positively aud
absolutely refused to marry her. Shu
a Hedge that she repeatedly and fre
quently urged upon lllru to make good
his promiso of marriage; butho has put
her olffrom time to time, aud now utterly
refuses to marry her, although sho was
ready and willing during all this time.
Tho third aud lust count sets forth that
upon her engagement with Skac to be
married lu Juuuary. 1800, it was under
stood that she was to retlro from tho
stage, which profession she hud previ
ously followed as a means of support to
hereeuaud mother: that she did so retire
from the staire on that account, and has
since that time been deprived of that
means of sunnort. For this reason, aud
for Injuries to her feelings by reason of
the failure or tho defendant to mum
his promise, she claims damages to tho
amount of $50,000. Tho attorneys lu the
case are Moore & urinin for tho planum,
anu uicicinson auicKinson ror tno tie
rendu tit. The. cam u likely to lo u very
ctoncly contested one, but It has not yet
been set down for trial
