A fair number was on hand,

genuine. Parties who participated as
Bure us that they novor enjoyed them

A largo number was expected from

At 12 o'clock rn. to-day the following

Georgo Washington, a sun-masked

George Evans, another nigger, got

$5 00 and costs, whlch'he paid.
Bottle Fronch, a colored wench, was
convicted1 of vagabondage, and fined
$10. CAlabooscd for 10 days.
Anna Bundenholmer, a negro bloomer,
accused Lucy Thomas of using offensive
language, but tho charge didn't stick,
and it appeared that Miss Anna was ac

sho was asked to pay tho costs of her
malicious proceeding. Not having the
"quills" sho waH sent to tho calaboose.
Next and last came Thomas Miller.
Thomas tampered with the ardent and It

The wholesale department of this well
known and popular establishment has
been so enlarged recently, that it is now
one of tho largest houses In the North
west The cities of New York, Boston,
Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Ciucfnnatl,
have all furnished a share to make It not
only ono of tho largest, but ouo of the
cheapest boot and shoe establishments,
of the country. Retail dealers in tho
surrounding country will no doubt re
ceive an assurance of this fact with pleas
ure, as It enables them to proctiro sup
plies at Cincinnati prices, and without
vexatious delay and heavy freights and
It Is, however, with the retail depart
ment which the majority of our
readers have to do, and of that depart
ment we propose to speak, specifically.
Only a day or two ago some fifty cases of
boys', misses' and women's wear wero
opened, in addition to the already largo
stock that filled the shelves and burden
ed the counters. In this now lot were
some of tho handsomest, and best made,
misses' shoes wo ever saw in tho Cairo
market. Tho variety is so groat that wo
shall notattompt to enumerate, but we
enquired of ourselves, while inspecting,
It, If there was ingenuity enough among
our young ladles and misses to conceive
a want or a fancy In the shoe line that
this houso could not supply. And a like
completeness and variety distinguish
the supply of ladles' wear. It embraces
everything suggested by the wants of
the times. And a feature of this es
tablishment, not less alluring
to tho buyer than its immenso
and widely varied stock, is tho fact that
tho prices aro very low so low, indeed,
that a gentleman In our presenco de
clared that ho saved at least fifty dollars
a year slnco he commenced buying boots
and shoes thcro. Tho largo trade con
centrated upon tho houso enables the pro
prietors to sell upon a small margin, and
as that trade increases that margin will
diminish, tho house holding itself ready
at all times to divide its profits with its

During the past two or three years no
charge has been mado by tho proprietors
of the Cairo wharf bonta for receiving
and taking care of freights for city de
livery. At all other points where there
aro wharfboats it is customary to mako
a reasonable charge for such servlco,
and in cities for skids, tarpaulins, etc.
Wo are paying an Immense tax in
tho way of license, wharfage, taxes, etc.,
aud find it actually necessary to avail
ourselves of every legitimate mode to in
crease our Income to meet these and oth
er expenses, and we havo mutually
agreed that after May 1st, 1S69, our
churgo on all freight received by us for
city delivery, will be fifty cents per tun,
with privilege of tweuty-four hours stor
age, which we think will meet with tho
approbation of all our customers who de

tect their interests from damages arising
during transportation, etc.
