The Road to be Completed wlthla Tot
Tmn.
It affords us much pleasure to be able
to announoe that a contract has been
closed that Insures the completion of the
of the Cairo and St. Louis railroad with
in two years from the date of the con
tract. It was known several weeks ago that
propositions had been submitted to the
directory of the company that command
ed the most favorable consideration.
On Wodncsday last tho executive com
mittee of tho company, consisting of
Messrs, Morrison, Nallle, 'Roseborough,
Logan and Taylor, met In the city of St.
Louis, and perfected arrangements with
Mr. J. J. Mitchell, to build the road
from East Bt. Louis to Cairo, at the
earliest practicable moment, tho limit
being two years.
The directory of the road will remain
unchanged, except In the one particular
that room must bo made by the resigna
tion of a member, for Mr. Mitchell, who
Is henceforth to fill tho position of presi
dent. A corps of engineers will commence
the survey immediately, and prosecute
it with the utmof t vigor.
'The arrangement with Mr. Mitchell
remains subject to the ratification of the
board of directors. The board will meet
in Murphysboro, Jackson county, on the
0th of October, when, no doubt the rati
fication will be effected.
Of the ability of Mr. Mitchoil to com
ply with the contaact, no person who is
acquainted with the means and applian
ces at his command, entertains even the
shadow of a doubt. In less than two
years the road will be completed as stip
ulated, and Cairo will be realizing tbo
fruits of its successful operation.

On Saturday evening last a gentleman
stopped at tbo Continental hotel, in this
city, and registered himself "O. Hillman,
Tenn." He deposited a carpet suck with
the clerk and received a check therefor.
On Sunday he observed to tbe clerk that
he had taken no breakfast and wanted
no dinner. He then repaired to his
room. On Sunday night at 12 o'olock,
Mr. Stltes, tbe proprietor of tho Conti
nental, saw Mr. Hillman descending the
stairs In tho direction of the street. He
never returned.
This morning while one of tho steam
ers at onr wharf was towing a pair of
barges in front of the city, the dead body
of a man arose astern. It was conveyed
to the shore, and although considerably
swollen aud disfigured, was believed to
be that of Mr. Hillman. The check
given by tbe elerk of tbe Continental
for tbe carpet sack, was found on tho
body, and Mr. Stltes recognized tho coat
as very like that which Mr. H. had on
when he left the hotel Banday night.
Therein some diversity of opinion as
to how tbe strange man came to his
death. The rtntletwand unbuppy frame
of mind be was in while at the hotel,
strengthens the conclusion that be des
troyed his own life. Certain marks about
tbe throat and arm Induce the belief, on
the part of some, that be had been foully
dealt with, and this conclusion la
strengthened by the finding of a watch
key and no watch, upon the body, and
a number of pistol cartridges and no
pistol. There was a two dollar bill in the
vest pocket and a few,nickeU In thepan
taloons pockets. And a third view of
the matter Is that the body Is that of one
of the victims of the ill-fated Phantom.
Which, of all these conjectures is tbe
true one, we may never know.
The body was Interred at the oxpenso
of tho county.
Madame Garnet aud June Bunch, col
ored females, were on the rampage yes
terday. The madame had Jim Jackson,
a man of sombre hue, arrested for smack
ing his bunch of fives against her sacred
person. Ho struck her first. She proved
that fact by Jano Bunch, who felt as
sured that Jim Jackson wai the meanest
negro in Cairo. This was conclusive as
to Jackson's guilt, so a fine of five dollars
and cost was recorded against him. Ho
had no tqonoy aud tbo consequenco of de
fault stared lilrn in tbo fuco In tbo shape
often days imprisonment. Jim being
or a social turn, wanted company, so ho
cross fired at his prosecutors. Ho aworo
that madamo Garnet used languago cal
culated to provoke a breach of tho peace.
A fine of five dollurs and costs was
chalked down against the madame. He
swore that Jano Buncft kept a brothel,
aud a Hue of $25 and costs was recorded
against Jane. There being no money in
tbo crowd to meet theso demands, tho
irato trio wero started for tbo calaboose,
Jackson and Garnet to to remain ten
days each, und the unfortunate Bunch,
thirty days. At Intervals, of say fifty
feet, while en route for tho calaboose,
tho angered females tried to tear Jack
son's eyes out, divest him of his shirt
bosom, or knock him off the sidewalk.
They him assailed at least twenty times
with such an uncharitable intent, and It
was about all marshal Bambrlck could
do to keep them from gratifying lt.
Tke Boot Hkoe Trasle fCHlro.
The arrangements existing between
the wholesale boot and shoe house of
Messrs. Elliott, Haythorn ft Co., of this
city, aud some of the most extensive and
successful boot and shoe manufacturers
of the East, are such as confer upon the
houao advantages enjoyed by few other
dealers in tho same lino in the northwest.
Messrs. E. H. ft Co. did not enter into the
wholesale business until they felt assured
of their ability, not only to compote with
St. Louts, Chicago ft Cincinnati houses,
but to offer inducements that would
divert trade from those cities. The dally
shipments of goods by them to points in
Missouri, Kent cky, Tennessee and Mis
alsslppi, which formerly rooolved their
supplies from other cities, may bo accept
ed as proof that they are doing preciioly
what they proposed.
Their supply Is as largo as Isordluarlly
found ,In wholesale houses, and their
facilities for procurlug additions to their
stock, are unsurpassed. We therefore
confidently assert that tho retail dealers
In boots aud shoes, living any where
within three hundred miles of Cairo, can
buy at Cairo en better terms than else
where in the country.
The retail department is preserved in
taot, and has been greatly enlarged by
receipts of fall and winter wear. Ladles
gentlemen, misses and boys are abund
antly provided for, and the prices that
have sat long defied competltleu, still
