The commlttoo on streota have direct

when the necessary lumber has been pro

walks need repairs, but wo doubt wheth
er so larjo a force as at present engaged
should be longer employed In making
theso ropaira. Nearly $0,000 have been
expended on sidewalks in the last nix
months. If it Is tho policy of tbo oom
ualtteo to have work douo in ordor to

would euggost that at least two of tho

be taken from that work und put on tho

The Matter mill In Ntntn Quo
There was reason for anticipating that
a contract would be closed with Col,
Allen, lor the construction and operation
of the 0. A F. It. It. from Blru's Point to
Charleston, ua soon aa practicable after
Cairo voted tho $100,000 asked of her.
This conclusion was confirmed by tho
receipt of the following letter:
4.1, Wall HraittT, I
.Vr.w Yuan City, July 29, le09.
To tho Mayoro Cairo Illinois:
Hih: I learn by the papers that your
people have, by a vole nearly ununl.
ruous, agreed to tho proposed subscrip
tion of $100,000 for the purpose of secur
ing the opening of tho railroad from
Charleston, Mo., to tho Mississippi rivor,
I expect to be down over our road at
its opening, and will endeavor, at that
time, to meet you, In order to mako the
necessary arrangements to carry the
proposed subscription into practical ef
fect. Congratulating you upon the result, I
remain very respectfully, yours,
Since tho receipt qf tho above letter
Col. Allen has uot been heard from on
the subject. We are still inclined to be

Cairo, III., Sept. 8, 18C9. tf
A subscription paper Is being mndo for
tho relief of Mrs. Summers, whoso llttlo
boy was killed and horribly mangled by
tho cars of tho Illinois Central railroad.
The railroad employes are hold entirely
blameless iu the matter, as tho little boy
was seated under the cars when the train
commenced moving and was not seen
until tho trucks were iu the act of passing
throuKh his body. It is, therefore, tho
extromest folly to even talk about any
responsibility attaching to tho railroad
Mrs. Summers is a widow woman, in
very indigent circumstances, who is still
charged with tho caro of thrtio children,
tho eldest of whom is not over'sovon
yoars of ago. She is, therefore, a desorv.
ing object of charity, and wo hope that
citizens to whom application is made,
will oxtend such as asslstauco as they
can, ifitamountto no more than twenty-
Murac WanttMl to 'travel.
Any person desiring to go East und
willing to assist in taking charge of a
child to N. York will havo their expen
ses paid iu wholo or part according to
efficiency. For further particulars address

I am known as a penceablo, law abi

When Shores first entered theso

brother Jacob Bradley there, until I
could hardly wullf the streets for his dis
tressing civilities and fraternal demon
Btrosltlcs. Finally tho recriminating
public began to give Shores some eleva

And when (Shores, through m, hud
gained a llttlo atanding, ho told tho col.
onui people that the good people of Cairo
were unwashed rebels; easily irrigated
against thorn; that he was a Union man
and could provide for their protectltude,
if the colored people would put them
selyes uuder his dominations. And
since then T. J. hhores has been exci

And wiio is Shores? I caii ly my

declurale a denial, and I will rivet tho
shame on him with u rivet of steel.
As full of sins as Lazarus was of sores,
Shores presumutes to expunge the sacred
word to aggregated man l Hearme. Ho
dispelled a male member of hi.-church,
not because the member worked on Sun
day, but because he didn't glvu the mon
