('aa-fat Ib a Whirlpool.
Soverrl days ago a little boy was pad
dling a canoe in the Ohio, near Wil
liam's mill, whero the bend of tho river
creates on rJdy, and where, consequent
ly, there are (occasional whirlpools of
considerable violence. Ono of these
whirlpools caught the boy's frail boat
and whirled it around at a speed that
promised for a moment to engulf it. The
boy grew dlzzy threw himself in tho
bottom of the boat and hallooed for help.
Another little boy about tho same size
and age, heard his calls and securing a
skiff, gallantly rowed to his assistance.
When he reached tho whirling canoe,
his own craft was caught in tho vortex,
and for tho space of three or four minu
tes he shared in the peril of the other. The
young maelstrom finally lost its force,
and tho boys slowly floated off with tho
sluggish current. Tho boy that was first
caught had become unconscious and tho
other so sickened that ho could scarcely
hold up his head. He threw water Into
tho face of his companion, however, and
soon had tho satisfaction of seeing him
and mutually resolved that in tho future
revive. They gained thoshorciuduetime

havo alto been extended to the mayors
of sovoral of our western cities, aud from
some of them a favorablo response bos

companies of Paducali will bo hero In
full force. Tho flroworks, consisting of
forty-flvo beautiful aud elaborato pieces,
havo already arrived. The Arabs seem

citizens generally shall, in after years,

Issue of the 'Bulletin' his purposo to close 1
out his entire stock of dry goods, carpet",
hardware, boots and shoes and notions ,
at prices actually below cost In Now York. '
He Is undoubtedly In earnest In this, as '
ho has resolved upon a change of busi
ness immediately. He has very few
goods on hand that are not seasonable,
fresh ana saleable. His lino of stanle dry
goods is very large, aud In silks aitd fan
cy dress goods he is also well supplied.
But everything he has in store, be it
good, bad or indifferent Is for sale at
prices much below cost.
There have been so many "sales at
cost" In Cairo, which proved mere dodges
to revive business, that the public has
learned to regard them with suspicion.
In the presontcasc, however, there Is no
humbnggery. So determined is Mr. Rell
ly to close out, that, If the people do not
choose to buy his goods at loss than New
York wholesale prices, he will proceed
10 sen mom at auction. But a visit to
his Btoro will convince any ono that ho Is
In earnest because it Is to his pecuniary
advantage to make the chango he con
templates. He desires to cioso out speed
ily, and to do so will put his goods down
nt a prico that will be sure to command
buyers. Call soon and take your pick
from the full stock. Two dollars will go
as far in his store as three dollars will go
in any other establishment In the city.
