The crowd was quiet and orderly, and
at a late hour In tho afternoon dispersed,
everybody pleased with tho afternoon's
Thore vue refreshments on tho
ground, so that eating, drinking, dan
dug and promenading could be indulged
in by all who felt Inclined that way. By
early tea tlmo tho crowd returned to tho
city, conscious that they had enjoyed

Nothing occurred to mar tho festivi

Into tho river. Tho little fellow was

THE MD ANNIVERSARY.
Its Obicrvar I mm Armmm Vmlrm.
The observance of the 93d anniversary
of American Independence In and about
Cairo, was riot as enthusiastic as usual,
although m considerable portion of our
peopio claim to be will pleased with the
pastimes nnd occurrences of the day.
Many of those who romalned in the city
kept open business houses from morning
until night, so that, passing through the
city, no evidences of a national Jubila
tion would have obtruded themselves
upon tho attention of any ona, In tho
commercial aspect. JBpys. banged flro
crackers, brass pistols und little pot
metal cannon, on dvcry street corner,
much to tho annoyanco of nervous indi
viduals nnd the drivers of unruly ani
mal c). Hore and there n pieco of bunting
was displayed from a house-top or second
story window; and now nnd then tho
well-accented measures of "Hall Colum
bia" or., tho "Star Spangled Banner,"
in tho voice of song, came out from a
social circledrawn together by tho claims
of the day, und excited to enthusiasm
partly by its inspiriting memories and
partly by something else.
tiik K.xcuitaro.v to imkuc.ui.
At 6 o'clock in tho morning about one
hundred and fifty ladies and gentlemen,
Including thirty or lorty members of tho
Arab lire company, boarded the steamer
Underwriter, and inn few minutes there
after were steaming their way toward Pa
tUicab, the Arab's to accept nu invita
tion extended to them by the Mechnnlca'
flro company of Paducau,aud the others
to enjoy themselves aa best they could.
Hie Joncsboro cornet band, which very
kindly volunteered their services, and
the Cairo silver cornet band, hired for tho
occasion, discoursed flnt-clais music for
outcldo llsteuers, while Kaudnmn's line
cotillion baud furnished music, In the
cabin to which active feet kopt time In
tho measured step of the cotillion or tho
bewildering whirl of the wnll.
Shortly after mid day tho boat reached
tho Pad u call landing, where the Arabs
were duly received by the I'nducah fire
men. A procession was formed, tho
Aral (or about thirty of them) with
their steamer "Jack Winter," taking
the head of tho column, and the Me
chanics with their' steamer "Plain City,"
bringing up tho rear. After a round
through tho principal streets of the city,
tho Arabs returned to tho boat, placed
their nteamcr on board, and then escort
ed their Indies to the depot, ubout n
mile and n half dintnuL from the river.
As this trip had to be made on foot, It
piovcd quite tedious to the men and ex
hausting to the Indies. Arriving ut thu
pot the crowd bonrttctl u rjut-l trutu.
and were soon landed at
tho Fair grounds un enclosure of
eeveral ucrei, und well adupted for pic
nic purposes. Here, It was expected, u
formal reception would take place,
but. on account of deficient
arrangement, the "crowd had to
take care of thouirclvts us beat they
could. Two or three membors of the
Arab company, expecting a talk, ut the
fair grounds, had made up their minds to
ease themselves of a number of highly
elegant and entirely original references
to tho American eagloj.but tho opportu
nity being denied them, the science of
"patriotic ornithology" is no doubt tho
Tho repast being intended, no doubt,
for the firemen only, was somcwhut
short, when tho whole crowd pounced
upon it; but as most or tho Cairo delega
tion had partaken of refreshments before
leavlug tho boat, this deficiency was not
regarded as agrlevlous one.
Tho next thing In order was danclug.
A number of tho Cairo delegation crow
ded in and shook themselves quite pleas
antly; but others left the ground and re
turned to the city, Impressed with the
Idea that their Padueuu iriends were dis
posed to act upon tho presumption thut
their guests would be better pleased In
seeing than in participating.
Before leaving tho city some fifteen or
twenty of thclCalro crowd visited tho
Richmond House, presided over by thut
princo of good fellows, Mr. Gentry, und
wtro treated In tho kiudest ami most
courteuus uiatinerjpjsslblo. Mr. G, pre
pared them nu elegauteupper utuu unu
sually early hour, nnd showed liimaelf n
high-toned, first-class geutluman, und
one thut Is eminently fitted for tho post,
tlou he occupies.
About tho hour of sunset tho Cairo
crowd was ngnlu on hoard, mauy of
them feeling somewhat disappointed
over tho developments of tho day, and
ullof them feeling worn and weary. A
short rest, nnd the lnvigorntiug breezes
from tho river proved a great restorer,
however; uud in less thuu an hour,
KaufI'mau was again at his post, uud
dozens were again deep in the pleailng
mazes of the dance.
About 12 o'clock the Underwriter
rounded in at our wharf, and disuhargod
a crowd, who estimating tho realizations
of the day a a whole, felt no regrets
over tho trip with tho Arabs to Paducah.
Tin: VIONIO OVKH TIIK HIVKU,
At l) o'clock tho ferryboat Cairo pushed,
out with u large nnd merry crowd for tho
picnic grounds in thu. neighboring
groves of Kentucky. A tloor had been
laid down, und n muMo stand erected,
uud by 10 o'clock theao were Ulled the
former by ns gay u party of young people j
as ever itm-mblcd In Kentucky, nnd tho
lutter by Wlttlg's fcplendld otrlng hand.

THE PAIH CAH PRIZE HOGSHEAD.
Rather K penal v "Buncombe.''
Tho prize hogshead of tobacco at tho
recent Paducah tobacco fair sold well.
Jt brought, We believe, $255 per 100 lbs!
Cairo was laid in the shade, and Padu
cah was in extacles 1 But thereby hangs
a tale! Hearken: The Cairo hogshead
was sold for tho modest UttU sum of
S132 por 100 lbs to Christian Pepcr, of St.
Louis, and by him manufactured Into
that splendid plug for which ho stunds
unrivalled. So this looks very much
llko a sale in good faith.
But tho Paducah hlid wl at of that?
A business letter from a St. Louis firm to
a Cairo firm, contains the following par
agraph, which wo commend to tho
prayerful attention, of our venerable
cotemporary ofthoPaducdh 'Herald:'
"Jifcmrs. Q. fr Co. alto had a number of
package of ''briglU Kentucky" on the
breaks this morning, and among tho lot
THE HHD THAT TOOK THIS Fir-ST
PREMIUM AT PADUCAH. IT WAS
BID OFF ATSoO, and rejected.
So, In tho estimation of close, experi
enced nnd competent buyers, tho Padu
cah prize hhd., that was made to sell for
$255 per 100 lbs in Paducah, is actually
worth f 0! Doesn't this seem to Inti
mate that tho "Paducah ring" will have
to pay rather dearly for their buncombe?
Thodillercnce, Mr. 'Herald,' between M0
nnd$2.5Is $109. Hence, if your prize
hhd. weighed only n thousand pounds,
your "ring" will pay the neat lltllo sum
of $I,&to for the fun of laying Cairo in tho
fthadc, etc. If you are curious to know
who Messrs. (J. Ai Co. are, uhkyour ware
housemen, nnd if you want full and spe
cial details ask tho amiable and compla
cent editor of tho Cairo 'Bulletin.'
At a late hour Sunday night a gang of
young rowdies employed thcnifeivcs for
nu hour or m re ut the work of changing
Higus nnd barber poles, and in obstruct
ing tho streets uud sldewulks by piling
boxes nnd rubbish thereon. Thh was
probably intended as harmless deviltry,
hut It nevertheless subjects the participa
tors to n criminal prosecution for mall
clous mlsohlef; and as two of thu purtles
are known they will probably be Indicted
during the term of the court now In ses
Ion. yt Ho Am one the Dnrhlr,
Ahelect party of colored Individuals
met in tho old City Unit Inst night, and
were absorbed in tho pleasures of tho
dance, when there came u crashing und
a banging at tho door. Or cours-e o
t,roa ret. f the dance was arreU 1, and
u rush mado for the door, when who
should claim nduils'lou into that select
crowd but a number of black demireps,
notorious treet-wnlkerf, and tho lowest
in tho town. "Ob koase" they couldn't
come in; they insisted, nnd ono after the
other was lluug down eta Irs. Rallying,
they again bcM-lged the door, but agin
he nt headlong down tho stairway, with
out any regard for consequence. This
assault was repeated fouror five times by
the black bawd?, the roput.e, in every
Instance being tho name. Tho police fi
nally camo along that way nnd gobbled
two of tho offending wenches and escort
ed them to tho calaboose. Quiet then
reigned; but tho "select" party had re
ceived a shock from tho effects of which
It could not recover, aud it was deemed
ndvisuble to disperse aud go home, This
suggestion was acted upon, nnd tho "so
lect' darkles dispersed, not a little Indig
nant that "low niggers can't abide re
"Barrett's" retores with rapidity.
The "Fonrtb" nl flu luolu.
The colohration of our 03d anniversary
took place in Du Quoin, on Snturduy.
The crowd assembled In n beautiful grove
about a half mflo north of the town, and
was organized by calling Mayor Mo Lain
to the chair. Tho Declaration of Inde
pendence was rend by Dr. W.J. Burgess,
after which G. W. Wall. Esq. indulged
In a few neat and appropriate remarks,
closing by introducing tho orator of tho
day, thoITou. D. L. Phillips, Into U. S.
Marshal for tho southern district of Illi
nois, uud at present presldont of tho
Bollevllle and Southern Illinois railroad
company. Mr. T.'s speech was charac
teristic highly eulogistic of thobeautlos
of liberty, fraternity and equality
wordy, vehement nnd noisy.. He was
followed by a young lawyer named D.
W. Fountain, who Indulged in a short
and rather poetical outgush, thut was
well received by tho audience.
The barbecue, which was abundant
and well served, was prepared by J. B.
MoLaln a gentleman who manifestly
understands that kind of business. Tho
inusio was by the Du Quoin band, Mider
tho leadership of Mr. John Bowman, and
wns highly creditable.
Tho men, women nnd childron com
posing tho crowd maintained nu order
ly nnd Intelligent benrlng, wore well
dressed, nnd Just such a peopio gonorally

claiming n Its own.
