"FIVE GENTS." i
Bomethtng less than a hulf dozen per
nons In tho city Imvo avowed their unwil
lingness or Inability to pay tho ndvanco
of flyo cents per week wo nro compelled
to makolu (liosubijorlnUon nrlco of our
paper. frar.goly 'ertoughtho1 majority
of tli (h Hinull number la composed of
business men, who in tho purchaso of
any other article 'in tho world, would not
regard "live cunts" as at ull worthy of
mention. They would give or take that
attlbu'rt Hi the" ptirohaso of a cighrj a can
of oysters or glass of brandy, without
giving tho matter n second thought.
How does It happen that they, and in
fact u lurgo portion of newspaper read
or, aro penurlousjouly In their transac
tion with newspaper publishers? Wo
confess there Is n mystery in tills for
which we have no solution.
"We will not be accused of egotism for
saying .that Cairo cannot allbrd to lose
hor newspapers Nothing more truly
rellects ilie enterprise and business of a
city, tho public spirit of Its citizens than
tho newspaper. Strike It out of exist'
ence and there is an enervating blank
created that nothing else can till. Now
wo are not and never have been under
any soeelal obligations to keen the '.Bul
letin' afloat one day longer than tho
public patronage warrants us In doing.
The advance to twenty cunts per week
was necessary to make the subscription
pay for the blank p:tper nod the cost of
delivery. If tills advance live cents a
week, ouly is kindly and generously
submitted to, the expense spccllled will
bo provided for. The rt continuance of
our present advertising patronage, will
only provide an income for other outlays,
leaving nothing for prollts.
For the present wo shall be satlstled
to continue tho paper If the money It
costs Is rcplttced, looking to the future
for our prolltj. When, however, tho pa
per becomes u pecuniary burden on our
hand. It must of necessity stop. Wo
have no personal aims to accomplish
Tho paper Is published in the interest of
Cairo, and will labor In season and out
ox season for thu Well uelug or tnu city,
and thu success of her undertaking.
Certainly, then, it is not expecting too
much to expect that those for whom wo
labor will secure us against loss.
"T. C. I. O."
Who has not wondered what"T. C.
1. O" stand for? Everybody knows
that they at. nd In the .same relation to
the "Imperial" movement that U. A. It,
do to that wofully slandered organization
that has nothing In tho world to do With
polities, viz: the' Grand Army of the lte-
publics The 'imperialist' tells wnai ute
purpofcof thoT. C. 1 O.ils, but. with-,
holds (he name, leaving tit to infer that)
it is "The Cursed, Imperial Ogres,!' 'yhe
CuUtlffoat, Infidel Order,,' or anything
elo tliat may suit pur Janjry. Th pur
poso oftho organization li thus set forth
bvUtoM'IaiDdrittlNi" a sheet that claims
to be tfio dfllclal organ: 2
"Tl.i.!'IV O. Is O. Is a secret, political ,
and ndjilai order. Its object and purpose!
Is to secure the establishment of a string!
centraijgoveruiuent luthe'Unltcd States!
that sllall secure, peace and prosperity to
tho-country, protect thoughts of our
tiatjoual crellt6rs, and leorganlzo society
on a basis (hat snail admlQof no equali
ty but that of aqual resppnsiblly to and
protection, under tho law'. It Is not an
armed military orgauUttibJi, uor aro Its
members pledged to auyth'juj: which the
constitution of tho present goveninoiit
'deffneTas treason. It contemplates' no
revolution other tlmn thuf which can bo
accompjlshed through the pressure of
tho powerful moral Influences. If, how
over, Uio control of our national ' a 11 a Irs
aloud suddenly pas from tho hands of
tho many, and one strong-minded, in
telligent man should declare himself
"the government," tho revolution would
have been accomplished, and the T. C.
I. O. wquld owe no other allegiance than
that demanded by tho crown."
Thu above Institution has come to an
end. Whllo wo fear that not much good
will result from It yet waJiopo It may
prove u blessing to tho craft. Galesburg
was not represouted. An old ftutltiuatod
miller "chiselled" onoof our city editors
out of his pass uud hay been to Mobile,
on It. Mr. Stephe It. Smith, who was
one of the original founders of the asso
ciation, wrote for a pass but was replied
toby thq ttateinentr that he. was not a
member. It is a little singular that
Kuowles can got In and Smith must bn
kept out, hut we aro charitable enough
to suppose that the whole thing Is loyal.
All the abuses of which complaints
are made by our "unrepresented ootem
porarles,'1 can bo and will bo corrected.
The fact that a number of persons in
sinuated themselves into "a ring" where
they did not belong, argues not against
the Press Association, but against the
ahamelesaness of parses having no conr
ueotlon wltli it. Tho association has al
ready taken action that will, In the fu
ture, prevent tho abuses complained of.
Tho idea that tho organization must dlo
because undeserving men partook of tho
hospitalises of Cairo. Mobile, etc., is
preposterous. The recent experience of
theftoWlflty will enable It to assume a
better shape and to lay a broader foun

OERMAXS IN SOUTHERN ILLI
NOIS'. Under this caption tho Now York 'Tri
bune' speaks of German Immigration as
the agency that is to work out a great
destiny for Southern Illinois. True to
the belittling instincts of its naturo, It
indulges In characteristic tlings at tho
early settlers of the country, charging
tho slow pace of Improvements to the
prevalence of democratic sontimont
among people. We make such extracts
as aro entitled to serious reading and a
placo in the columns of a truthful Jour
nal. Southern lllinols.says the 'Tribune,'
Is an Indeiinite term; but wo may say
that It is a triangle formed by the Ohio
aud Mlsslsslppl rlveru and the Ohio v and
Mississippi railroad, although the region
Is often considered to extend from 60 to
100 miles further north. Tho trianglo
we speak of Is nearly equilateral., .Each
side of Ufa about 160 miles long, m a
line bisecting It and termlsatlng at
Cairo as the apex, would be about. 120
miles long. The northern portion, about
150 miles wide, Is prairie, latersporsed
with groves, and mostly Ip.vol, whllo the
southern portion Is more or leas hilly,
and unless oleared, covered with heavy
timber. The Illinois Central passes
through this region frotn'north to south,

From the Preenort ,nlt!lotin., I
"On Taesilay mdriilng. April 20, I860,
about 275 editors and ladies took seatif In
tho flno cars 'of' IboIIUklfois Central Itail
road Company, and were soon ou their
way 'for, Cqirb', ' yu'ere, after passing
through Champaign. Centralis and other
flnocltierfb'n'd partaking of-dvnrj tliiug
that was good for the Inner man, wo ar
rived on Wednesday and woro received
by tho kind citizens of Cairo with opon
arms and hospitable- Hearts, and sent to
the St. Charles and, other, hotels to po
cared for during our slay. On our way
to Cairo many other editors uud ladies
'we're added to our listf, and when' Wo' ar
rived in this goodly city, wo numbered
about 2-50 men and women.
Wo havo not language sufllclcnt to ex
press our feelings and thanks to tho
peoplooftho prospective great city of
Cairo for tho manner In which they en
tertained us. Their liberality was un
bounded. The freedom of tho city was
extended to all, and all partook of the
hospitalities of a lorge, warm and noble
hearted people. May tho blessing of
Uaven rain down upon them as abund
antly and freely as their free offerings
fell down upon us.
We cannot glvo a more interesting

We cannot forego tho pleasure of
speaking of tho grand ovation and ban
quet at Mound City, on tne 21st of April.
Tho people ot this beautiful city extended
to us a welcome that could not bu sur-
fiassud for genuine hospitality and excel
encc. Here, as In Cairo, everything
was free, and tho enjoyment unbounded.
Tho citizens seemed as If vleing with
each other as to who should do the most
to satisfy their guests and render their
short stay pleasant
We were Indebted to Capt. Halllduy,
of tiie steamer Gen. Anderson, for a con
veyance to aud return from Mound City.
Through the politeness of Commodore
Walke, aud the gentlemanly Master
Mechanic, Itomeo I'rigauza, wo had nn
opportunity to enter toe navy yard and
examine tho monitors lying there. This
was a sight worth seeing.
We then visited the residence of Dr.
N. Ii. Casey, city mayor, whero the host
and hostess showered their hospitalities
upon us in unlimited quantities.
Tho next nlace we went was to the
residence of Hon. V. L Hambletou, and,
were again kurprweu-at Ujb unbounded
generosity of thehost aud hostess. Never

Tiie banquet over, we embarked "upon

In Cairo full of Joy and expressing satis

We are again In Cairo and visit the res
idence of James Johnson, Agt. III. Con.
and UiatjOtW. W. Thornton, whero
the ladles and. gentlemen of the houses
were prepared to mectus with everything
that heart' could desire. The tables at
