McCord oi St. Louis, la here on business, steamboat business. At a distance he looki like good humor ad man. Major Winter will sell freih oyiten during the aeaion at forty centi per can to famllia only. The testimony wai not sufficient to convict John Hemp of the crime charged the high crime and misdemeanor of as Mulling Llrx'e Arman, a vag of the low- eat kind, and he was discharged. Inebriated Ike Fleming, tipsy Frank Capell, drunken Tom Forrest and elevated Sill Morris, were yesterday led into tbo presence of Judge Bross. Capell had du cats, but the other gentlemen are now arnlng their bread in the sweat of their faces, and Major McIIale, of the city jail, furnishes the bread. Major W. P. Ilalllday has been ap pointed to represent Cairo in the Commer cial convention at St. Louis on the lltb. A batter selection could not have been made. -The people of the city will be re quired to Tote on the question of new or old charter on the 7th of January. "Blng in the new, ring out the old I" Major George TV. Rarden and Major B. O. Dixon, contractors on the Mississippi Central railroad, left here last evening to join their working force on the line of the road in Tennessee. Major Cummings liberally dropped In to see us yesterday. Cummings and The Busxetix go "snook's" now in poli tics. Yesterday wai a melancholy day, gloomy and depressing. It was Greeley's burial dayt -The horse disease has not been spread ing vary actively in this city, but there is enough of it to make many of our horses feel uncomiortable. A number of Major Powers' horses are sick abed with it. The city authorities are using every possible precaution to prevent the small pox from getting a foothold in Cairo, Major Oerould made us storm yester day with one of his gas bills. He is now, no doubt, being denounced all over the city. The long nights are coming, and who can endure such bills? Of course their largeness must all be laid at Major Oerould'a door. Would that we owned an oil well! Work cattle were selling yesterday at a good price. They will take the place of horses if the epiiootlc goes on with its how. Our neighbor on the levee can have bis curiosity gralifled this morning, by reading the advertisement in the Bulls TIX, headed Soibeb. Major Abell is a wag. Yesterday ho informed us, with all tbo seriousness of Dr. Hulse participating in a revival of re ligion, that an engine, 16-horse power, had "cawed to run" in one of the factories in this city. When we innocently asked the cause, he assured us "that eight of the six teen horse-power bad taken the epizoot ic I" Major Wood very properly suggested to the council, that the public citterns should be filled with water. If the coun cilmen would go further and induce the council to construct more cisterns to be filled, he would deserve the praise and Totes of a large number of flre-droading llliens. Major Oberly la in receipt of a certlB- cate from the department of state, at Springfield, declaring him entitled to i seat in the senate from the fiftieth senator lal district. Senator Ware has a certificate which entitles him to the same seat in the anate. A clerical error, that is all. Rev. Wm. Jackson, pastor of the African Methodist Episcopal church, in forms us that the bishop will visit bis church again soon and lay the cornor stone of the new place of worship, the ceremony having been postponed last Sunday on ac count of the inclemency of the weatner. Major Dick Fitsgerald says ho has not blamed us as soma of his friends have. Tbey say, be says, that Major Pope and Major Oberly bad arranged to havo the Republican procession stop in front of Tax Bulletin office so that the military editor, who never saw a squadron in the field, might fill bis cheeks blowing hi 1 A . . - oauicsi trumpet; out ruzgereld says no never oeiieved tbat of Jobn. Richard we owe thee one I Just one yetr ago, Major-well we won't mention bis name became drunk, fell Into bad company and was robbed of bis watch and chain. lie could not tell who robbed him, or wbero bis time-keeper wu, until yesterday be ascertained that b watch answering the description bad been left at Houpt'e a few days ago for re pairs. It was the Major's. It was left at Houpt's by a lady, who came by it honest ly Bt Columbus, Kentucky, and who is a loser to the song of thirty dollars. Major Howley'e smiling face was vis ible in our office yesterday. IU owner celled on business. Its owner proposos to make the contest for city clerk again at the approaching municipal election. Ma jor Scofleld'i frienda propose to mako him cooteat for tbe clerkship with our frlond, the present incumbent. The straight Democrats the Tburmanlc followers af ter tbe will-o'-the-wisp of tbe states right, aatl-nifgar and reactionary philosophy will, we are informed, run Major Mockler " 'klbp. Tho action of tho city council, author ising tlio mayor to appoint delegates to the railroad convention to be bold at Par is, Tennessee, on tho 10th Inst., was proper and wise. We have somo interesting facts in relation to this movoment, which wo shall lay before our readers to-morrow. At a meeting of tho Cairo Casino held last night, the following officers wore elected for the ensuing six months : John Schcol, President; Steve. Schwanltz, Vlco President; R. B. Bcltzner, Secretary; II. Schraittdorf, Corresponding Secretary, and Louts Herbert, Troasurcr. Again tho leaders of tho demi are to suffer. Yesterday Whitcamp and Martin swept down upon the castle, and brought three of the inmates boforo Judge Bross, who fined them S10 and costs each. The money was paid. Whore now Is the good old Martha? Why Is sho silent? Why is not her nen activo in tho dofenio of thoso abused innocents? Hulse professes to havo the ability to to cure bots by an altogether mysterious process. A man who can do this, can cortainly drlvo away tho prevailing epi zootic, and should do so. Wo theretoro suggest that an ordinanro should at onca be enacted compelling Hulso to euro tho sick horses of tho city. Failuro on his part to comply with tho provisions of this proposed ordinanco should subject him to capital punishment. Major Jowett Wilcox, formerly of this city, well known to many of our citizens particularly familiar with Major Dunning, Major Barclay and Major John sonis, wo havo been informed, in tho city, He has not honored The Bulle tin with a call, but has called on tho Sun.' Wo fear that wo have in somo way laceratod tbo sensitive heart of our whilom friend, and wo deslro to cxplato our offence by becoming penanco. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Cicson, a col ored couple who bad lived for year's in tho bonds of matrimony, happy and content edly, bad an ambition, which they could not control, to amass wealth. Like wiso pcoplo, tiny theroforo concluded to go into the boarding house business. They bad been observers, and had seen fortunes amassed by boarding houso men men liko Major Wilcox, Major Winter, Major Ellis and Major Kolloy and thoy knew that money was in tho business. To get it out they went in. Among their board ers was Uowurd iiicnarason, a coioreu Adonis, who speedily captured the affec tions of Mrs. Gibson, who cruelly left her lord and master for tho sako of tho gay de ceiver. Gibson, disconsolate and forlorn, is now in search of a, law to compel his wife to return to him, and is expressing a great desiro to indulge in Richardson's heart's blood. In the meantime tho board ing bouse is a banquet ball deserted, and all Gib's visions of wealth have been rudely dislppatod. Major Cunningham wants to be city treasurer again. His father, Major Cun ningham, Sr., should bo returnoa to tbe council. He has timo on his hands which he can afford to devote to tho interests of tho city, and understands tho city's neces sities very thoroughly. Besides, he is one of those intelligent Democrats who can see a little beyond their noses, and stands sido by side with thoso political pioneers who nro advancing out of the old party up to tho front oi events. It is true that he did indulgo, with a few other ardont souls, in a little anger at The Bulletin when it, as usual, marshalled tho slow men of tho Democracy the way that they should go, but that calm second sober thought in which he and others very often indulge, brought him out of his anger, and he now stands as ono of the Apostles of the New Gospel of Progressive Democracy. At least be has got far enough to bo entitled to re election to the council. Wo forgivo him, and assure him he shall havo tho weight of what wo may call in all modesty our giant Influence. Finn This Morninq. At half-past three o clock this morning tbo alarm of flro was given, caused by tho appearance or flames in the rear of Wm. Scott's sa toon ana oiiuaru nan. ine encinoi wero promptly on hand, but tho building being a framo one, the flames bad gained cansid- erable headway, and it was impomiblo to savotbe building. Most of tho furniture and contents were raved. Tho flro was, wu believe, tho work of an incendiary. To add to tho attractions of tho Thalia saloon and restaurant, which it is so well known serves oysters in overy style, tho proprietor spreads HOT LUNCHES every morning at ton o'clock, and invites the public to come and purtako thereof, without money and without price. Fur thormoro, if you would indulge in a glass of lager, puro wlno, hot punch, Tom and Jerry, or any of tho popular cold weather drinks, you can obtain it nowhero in more palatablo shape, than at tho "Thalia,1 laid out and constructed by the county court ot Alexander county, strikes that river ; that said committee I) a also authorized to contract with said commissioners for the payment and relcaso to them of whatever amount may bo c illccted under the levy made under their authority for road and bridge purposes for tho year 1872, and which It is understood will amount to about 94,000, said nmount tojbe applied by them to the pay ment or the expenses of completing the new road to Cache, river, and tho construction of tho new bridge across said river and that tncy also he authorized to contract with said commissioners tor the payment to them by tho city, of any deficiency that may exist in the amount required to pay for said bridge and approaches ticrcto, aud road, so as to fully Indemnify said commissioners against ony loss by reason of the construction of said bridge, or completion of said road. rUBLIC CISTEHNS.
