SLAVQHTER OF THE CANINE
The proclamation of the mayor, pub
llshedip another column, directs that
11 do found runnmg oV large In the
city without a muzzle, shall be destroy,
d, and charges tho city marshal aud
day policemen with the duty of destroy
ing them. Thin measure, In view of the
prevalence of hydrophobia In tho Bur
rouhcllug country, Is regarded necessary
for tho protection of our citizens. Every
street and by-way of tho city Is thronged
night and day by dogs of all degrees,
many of them worthless, ownerless,
ncnklng, thieving curs, that should he
killed on sight on "general principles."
A single rnbld dog among these would,
In due season, furnish a "mad dog" for
nearly every family In tho city, creating
a panic, If nothing woroe, that It is well
to L'Uanl iiL'tiillHt.
'l'heactunl value of tho
dog.i that In
fest our streets, market places and com
mons, will be determined at the hour of
12 m. to-morrow, nx, at that hour every
owner in ml prt with his dog or with
Ix bits the price of a muzzle. After
that hour muzzled dogs will be esteemed
as the lx bit dogs and the unmuzzled
canines as the miserable, egg-sucking
progeny of utichtuto muteruul uuceetor,
not worth a copper. This Inst klud will
feel the grip of one of Davidson's "iron
hands," and afterwards the crash of lead
through their brain, that will relieve
them of u worthless existence, nud fur
ther danger of hydrophobia.
Of the i-lx-bit dogs there are not one
hundred In the city. Of the others there
are over one thousand, fully six hundred
of which are owned by the two hundred
negro families domiciled on our envi
rons. There are four negro families In
the city thut own, in the aggregate, thirty-three
dogs; and the general average
will not fall short of three dog to each
colored family. Among this largo num
ber there U not a single dog that Is worth
tlx bits. From this showing it will be
seen, not only how Cairo Is afllloted with
dogM, but what a Uog-killing Job is in re
serve for our marshal and day policemen.
RUMORS OF WAR.
The country wa slightly "Interested,"
jeelrrday, by the telegraphic aunouuee
neat that France, England and Hpaln
Jaad'madeaomeadvaucus toward a triple
alliance, offensive aud defensive against
theUnted States. While nobwly was
badjy scared, a great mauy placed no
reliance whatever In the rumor, regard
lutf.11 as purely, sensational, aud as set
-aflqat li the Interest or stock-jobbers.
This view Is strengthened, too, by the
1mc that not one word concerning such
a movement has been received from the
Legation in London,

Of all the editors InCalro on the 2I-i

the only one who discovered that "Cairo

some people with vivid Imaginations
have gone so far as to say that the inhab

phibious and that they are web footed.
We do not believe this, however, and
even If It were true, wo would have no
hesitation whatever In pronouncing the
pooplo of Cairo a whole-souled gener
ous, enterprising population, whoso
hospitality Is as deep aud unbouuded as
tho mud which boleagurcs their watery
city. In Justice to tho prosperous city
we will state that we beheld many mas
sive brick blocks and elegant private
residences, and that the hum and bustlo
of trade aud commerce resounded along
the wharves and levees, indeed, every
body appeared to be busy aud rushed
about with a rapidity that plainly showed
that the business men of Cairo do not
allow the grass to grow under their feet.
It Is emphatically a busluess city; the
merchants aro liberal, active, and enter
prising men, and fully understand the
secret of making trade. Although pot
containing, by a couple of thousands,
as many Inhabitants as Decatur; yet they
liberally sustain two Ant-class dally
newspapers, both of which are well filled
with prof table advertisements. i i

Robert J. Walker has written a letter
which fills about twelve columns of tho
Washington 'Chronicle,' on the proposed
annexation of NovaScotia to the United
States. He declares that the feeling of
the United States is strongly in favor of
her admission as a State of the Union;
that tho terms would be made favorable,
and that the probable effect on the wel
fare of Novr Scotia would be highly ad
vantageous, He says that "there is no
area of tho world, not larger than that
of Nova Scotia,, on which the Creator
has lavished such bounties aud such
wonderful natural advantages. Taklug
the combination of all these advantages,
there Is no State of this Union, nor of

area, can oojnpare with Nova Scotia.
