of the best quality and most fashionable styles.

Obphax AsYLCii. The citizens of Cairo

priety of adopting measures to accomplish so
desirable an object. It
Street Filling. The street filling process,
wider the direction of Fox, Howard & Co., is
progressing hbw mo.st gratifyingly. During the
present month they will place fully 15,000
cubic jards ef earth ori ''-our streets anil ave
nues, and Dext month (having their new engine
to operate with) will be a vast improvement
upon the present. All the estimates, so far,
have been promptly paid. May we not hopo
that we can say the same for the f uture ? The
tax is unquestionably heavy, but it will be
returned four-fold by the completion of the
worK.
The disposition evinced by our tax payers,
so far, is just what it should bev and a con
tinuance of it is all that id required to carry
forward this great improvement most successfully
Personal. Hon. Emerson F.theriilge passed
through Cairo on last Sunday on his way to
Washington. He called at the Times offie.
Dan. Munn left tho city yesterday for Wash-
ing)on to spend several aays. We suppose
his object is to see the sights and witness the
assembling of Cougross.
Insurance. The Niagara and Ben. Stick-
ncy, recently lost, were both uninsured. They
belonged to tho Atlantic and Mississippi Steam
ship Company a Company that believes it
more profitable to run the risk of losses than
to insure Terhaps they continue to think so,
and perhaps after a few more losses, they will
think better of it.
rRKPAxasa to Remove. Rittonhouse &
Hauny are preparing to remove at an early day
iuto their new building, cornor of Commercial
avenuo and Eighth street They desire to
close out, at their old place of business, the
whole of their old stock, if possible, so as not
to pill old cloth into a new garment. They
will therefore sell very cheap, and great bar
gains can be had there this week. Go,
everybody.
Amusements. Amusements do not prosper
much in Cairo just now. The stock company
at the Theatre could not got support enough to
hold it together. The Leslie- May benefit was
a heavy failure, and benefitted nobody. Last
night tho announcement that J. Birncy Mar
shall would give recitation draw a pretty re
spectable houso. It is doubtful whether a
good company couli secure permanent support
in Cairo. It is certain a poor company cannot.
Wo do not know what would draw good
houses, setting as.de) the first-class stars, unless,
perhaps, the old lady who runs the Gem saloon
could be induced to appear as a model artiste,
ii
. The Levees. Very few of our citizens have
a proper idea of the 'magnitude of the work
now being performed by tho Cairo Property
Trustees, upon the protective embankments
encircling our city. A fore numbering about
one hundred and tweuty-five men and fifty
teams aro now at work upon the Mississippi
levee, aud will continue so long as the weather
will permit.
If any of our citizens have apprehensions as
to the efficiency of our levees in that quarter,
whether as to iiijrht or thickness, a view of
litem, as now being constructed, will certainly
dissipate all fears in the premises. They are
not only about six feet higher than tho crest of
the highest tiood ever known in this locality,
but present a thickness, oasy outside slope an d
general solidity that at once guarantees the
most perfect security.
The daily outlay by the Trustees on this por
tion of the levee will fall but little short of six
hundred dollars. The present large force has
already been engaged several months, and we
are., informed that " it is tho purpose of of the
Trustees to push the work vigorously until
completed. A few weeks more of fair weather,
and this will certainly be accomplished.
Tho work, or rather the force of laborers,
is under the control of P. Corcoran, Esq., au
old and skillful contractor, and when finished
will certainly bear proper testimony as to his
fitness for the position he Is occupying, .
Gaslight. Among the multitude of public
improvements which are at present under way
in our city, no one promises at ouce so groat
advantage to families in tho important desid
erata of health, comfort, convenience, safety,
and economy, as ; the introduction of gaslight,
and not only to families, bat to every one who
has occasion to use an artificial light and who
does not? The arrangements for affording this
cheap but invaluable luxury to every citizen
are now in process of rapid completion, and
we expect to announce the introduction
of gas as soon as the first of January
next We shall feel a thrill of joy and
pride when we can see the streets of this city
illuminated with gas and tlr.nk the occasion of
its introduction ought to be celebrated in
some appropriate manner.
We spoke of health as one of the things
which would be promoted by this improve
ment. Nothing so increases or aggravates all
diseases of the eye as tho use ot a poor artifi
cial light, and besides this, it is well known
that many of the oils in use are exceedingly
noxious, if not poisonous in their exhalations.
They require constant care, and there is no one
who uses them constantly but suffers from it.
Gas light is not liable to this objection.
We spoke of comfort. Who that ever has
enjoyed the luxury of working by gaslight will
not appreciate this poiLt 1
We spoke of convenience. This is a consid
eration which every housewife will especially
make note of. No long row of lamps to be
cleaned, "trimmed and tilled every morning
no growling on account of broken chimneys
no oil to be spilled on carpets no evils or loss
to be feared from carelessness of children or
servants in short, a whole train of annoyances
and troubles will disappear in a moment.
We spoke of safety. " When we did
this we referred not so much to the
cemmon dangers, of children setting their
clothes on fire.'of furniture aud dresses ruined
by oil and caudle drippings, as to the acci
dents by explosions often involving the loss of
life and often the destruction of large amounts
of property. The Canterbury Hall fire was
doubtless caused by the breaking of a kerosene
lamp. Powers1 livery stable was fired by the
ailing of a lighted candle. The St. Charles
Hotel and the Perry Honse were both in dan
ger the same night through tho bursting of
kerosene lamps. The last fire, on 7th street,
was caused in the same way. There is little
doubt that the general introduction of gas
would decrease the rates of insurance and save
lives.
We spoke lastly of economy. This with
most is the strongest point, and it certainly is
with the gas company. Tho price of this ma
terial Jias been fixed -at $3,50 per 1000 feet,
aad the government tax. " This will make tho
gross cost to consumers $3,80 per 1000 feot.
Now different burners consume difforpnt quan
tities, from three to eight feet per hour. The
ordinary burner consume? fiveieet per hour at
its fullest capacity, but Is seldom used at thai
rate. Estimating ius consumption however at
live feet per Lour it would use up a thous
and feet in just,, two hundred hours, at t
cost of one and one-eighth rtnls per hour.
When, we add to these opsidorations this one,
that one of these burners affords more and bet
tor light than three coal oil lamps, we think
the economy of gas light is demonstrated. It
now costs us more than two dollars per day
for the poor, unsafe, inconvenient and in every
respect unsatisfactory coal oil lights we use.
and we shall lose no time in supplying our
See with the better material. Already
some of the best buildings In the city have the
pipes all in, and work begins to crowd on the
dealers in gas fixtures and tho workmen who
put them up.
Apropos to the subject-matter of this article,
we would call the attention of our readers to
the advertisement of tho Gas Company to bo
found, in our columns, and als j to the adver
tisements of the various firms who supply fix
tures and attend to putt ing them in.

The Medical Relief Society. This" Society
met at the office of Drs. Taggart & Castle yes
terday. There waa quite a large attendance of
indigent patients, white and colored, to Whom
relief suited to their various ailments were ad
ministered. The need of such provision as
these philanthropic physicians lhave' voluntar
ily undertaken to furnish is very manifest,- - and
undoubtedly .will become, more, so as their
efficiency, gsnerosity and professional skiH be
come known among the poor..-, They will not
only prescribe for the sick but perform neces
sary surgical operations whenever requisite
New'Lotioxs. We desire to call attention
to the advertisements in to-day's paper of two
new articles not before introduced to our read
ers ; the oue is the Aqude Magnolia, -a prepa--ration
for the toilet, manufactured from the
rich Southern magnolia, the delightful fra
grance of which any one who has ever known
can never lorget, and most especially welcome
any preparation which will afford, them the
subtile aroma in such form as to be useful for
tho toilet. '
The other article is ; likewise a preparation
from the magnolia, which seems . thus to
be achieving as .noble reputation
as a remedial agent as for its beauty and its
odor. We refer now to Ilagan s Magnolia
Balm, which is offered to our citizens as a val
uable cosmetic - It certainly must be: pleas
ant thing to try, aud since its effects are saia
to be cerum nna complete, rendering uie com
plexion fresh, transparent and smooth, it must
become very popular.

J MISCELLASTtOCS. l
Our old friend, the gigantic pilot, George Farnsworth,
who started OOt from Ciro from New Orietibs "to look
at the river," sosne weeks ago ' returned to 'the city
and;reportsuo usual "bad luck." He left here on the Hen
Stickney which sunk near the State Line, between Mis
souri and Arkansas, when 1.8. took another Wst and com
pleted the voyage to New Orleans. He there took voy .
age on the Niagara, and was again sunic by collision sith
the Post Boy last Friday night, fifteen miles above Hel
ena. It required five.steainers for him to make the round
trip.
He furnishes us with the following particulars of the
sinking of the Niagara: .That vessel was coming straight
up the river in her proper position, when the Post 1 Boy
was seen coming d jwn nd apparently in her proper
plai-e, which would have allowed the two steamers to
pass at a distance of some forty yards apart. When al
most opposite to each other the Post Boy suddenly turned
and ran across the river and struck the Niagara nearly
amidships, cuttin;; almost into her kelson, and earning
her to sink in little over one minute. There was no time
for tStrNissara to get out of the way, and she now lies1
"sunk isrher proper position, whleli wlH be positive proo1
against the pilots of the Post Boy.
So suddenly did the accident occur that nearly every
person- who was on -the main deck of the Niagara was
drowned, except a few who were awake and near stair
ways. One hundred and fifty colored soldiers were
drowned, and about fifty deck hands and firemen. The
mate has only been able'to find four men out of his whole
crew. Several of the deck passengers were rescued af
ter the boat sunk, by the suruivors cutting boles through
the cabin, floor. Only one cabin . passenger was drown
od, and he lost his life by jumping ovtrboard in a fright.
Mr. Farnsworth says that he came through the cabin
just as the Niagara was going down, and shU never for
get the awful shrieks and cries for help of the poor crea
tures immediately under his fast, as they struggled in
their last agonies with the treacherous element that was
fast overwhelming them.

r.. )
The weather continues to be all that could be desired
for trade, Ueamnd pleasant, and business iscjuite brisk
and increasing daily. Produce of all kinds is coming in
freely, and prices are kept well up for most kinds. The
stock of butter is large, and prices ai e hardly as firm
although dealers do not seem disposed to make any con
cessions. It is the general opinio; that prices will have
to come down, and that very scon.
The following is an epitome of last week's trade in St.
Louis, Chicago and Cincinnati :
Chicago Provisions The provision trade is stag
nant, aud not a transaction worthy of note tr.lnsnired- I
there are more sellers than buytrs. ai.d if sales oi bar
relled park' were forced", holders would hive to make ma
ter ml concessions. .-Birtne present unsatisfactory condi
tion of the market ve Ci-.n o. ly give the following revised
quotations a the nominal price.
' Flour The market is lifeless, and prices are almost
entirely nominal. ' The demand is confined to supply cur
rent wants, aau the sales m-tKin are not sultlcient to en
able us to give any reliaa e quotations. Buyers and seller-
are apart, and the sales nuking are mostly on pri
v .te terms. ; ; H
CornWas, In good sh'pping demon 1 to-day, and tb-5
market opened-firm at an advance of l2Jc per bo ;
closing firm at 61c for No. 1 In store, and oac for No 2.
Rejected was firm at 4S4ijJc.
liuttei The market exnibits a very quiet feeling, and
prices are decidedly w-ak. The market is just now over
atvtvlHli alt trades of butter. Choice dai y, in tubs
or crocus, is selling from S4(g36c; and firkin ranges
from 2634;, according to quality. We note sales ol
3U0 tba choice at 8Gc.
JJggs The market is quiet and weak, and dealers ex
perience difficulty in obtaining outside prices. W quote
mm ket range from 8-3(7&35c dozen for fresh assorted.
Cincinnati Epgs There is a good demaud for fresh

" Great Oaks rso Little Acobxs Grow." The
worst diseases known to the human race spring from
causes so small as to almost dery detection. The vol
umes of scientific lore that fill the tables and shelves of
the medical fraternity only go to prove and elaborate
these facts.
Then guard yourself while you may. The smallest
pimple on the skin is the tell-tale and indicator of dis
ease. It may fade and die away from the surface or the
body, but it will reach the vitals, perhaps, at lat, and
death lie the result and final close. Maggiel's Billions,
