Timothy Booth, contractor on tho C. and V. railroad, ia engaged in paying the llabllltlei oftho road in this city. The inspection of bill and their al lowance, bavo engaged tho attention of the county conrt, to tho exclusion of every other buiineti, for the lait four days. Only three cases of drunkenneu were before tho 'iquiro yesterday. All three were pennileti and were tent to work on the lidewaikt. Mr. Joi.

He ii convinced that the Are wai the work of an enemy, and thlnka hanging to a lamppost would be not too levere a punishment for the in cendlary. Min Yocum, a litter of our new circuit clerk, it assisting in the buiinesi of the office. Yocum is fairly itartcd in the labor of hit now position. lie is clever and accommodating. Capt. C. R. Budd, an old newipaper man, now connected with a commission house in Memphis, wai in the city yester day on buiinesi for tho house of Drury & Unison. Louis Susim is anxious to dlsposo of his buiinesi lintereit in this city. His heart turns towards Italy, and as soon as be can make satisfactory arrangements, he intends tu transport himself to the land of the tunny clime. A little labor on the eait tide of tbe sidewalk on Poplar street, between Seven teenth and Eighteenth itreati is necessary to plaeo it in good condition for pedes. triani. A cue of small-pox wai found at St. Mary 'a hospital yeiterday. On tbe dis covery that the disease was small-pox, tbe patient wai to be removod to the pest house, but juit as the attondants were about to raiie him irom the bed, prepara tory to hit removal, the poor man toll back and died. The epizootic made havoc among the horiei of the city yesterday, and busi ness commenced to feel its efTects. Dray age, which usually costs two dollars and a half, doubled its price yesterday, and to this the original prico will probably be added to-day. Low cistorm and tho epizootio con spire to mako water almost an expomive beverage and decidedly expeniive for tbe usual household purposos. Fifty cents a barrel wai the price paid yesterday for the necessary element. We are under many obligations to Capt. John McCord and Boss Powell of tho steamer Dexter, for a mess of quail, turkey and bear, which was froih and nice, elected from the lot of game tbeso two gentlemen bagged on their hunting expe dition over in Kentucky yesterday. Do o again, boys. The Presbyterian soclablo at tbe house of J. B. Reed last ovening, was a very pleasant affair. The attendance wai large, and all of the numerous company were made to fed at home under Mr. Heed's hospitable roof. Tbe pleasures of tho evening were varied by a couple of beau tiful tableaux, music and excellent refresh ments. The Gazette said of our dinner : "Mr. and Mn J. II. Oberly gave to the cm ployeei or the Bulletin office a Thanksgiving dinner, which we ckare my was a keenly rei lined by the "boys" ai Uio kindness or the giver will be gratefully remembered. A number oflntimate friends were also pres ent, and the whole party protest that the oc casion was one of the most enjoyable ofthelr lives. For reasons that were detailed to Mr. and Mrs. Oberly we regretfully declined their Invitation to be present." If tbe people of Cairo wish for mayor a gentleman who ii saturated with the In terests of the city a Cairo man from the crown of his bead to tbe soles of bis feet toiler ing in its manifest destiny as implicitly as in the principles of this government, tbey would not miss tbe mark by tho deviation of even the width of a hair if thoy selected Mr. W. "W. Thornton. Wo know there are those, and not a few either, who be lieve Mr. Thornton to be beyond reason in his Calroism, but wo don't; we believo bis predictlonsconcerning tho futuro greatness of this city to be founded on sound sense, and that the seofferi of bis rosy pictures are too slow to keep up with the rapidly advancing prosperity of their city too dull to understand tbe band-writing in transpiring events wbicb tells as plainly aa lucid English could that tbe days of Cairo'i doubt have passed away and the day of her assured greatness has already dawned. J. Q, Stancil wishes everybody to know that he keeps tbe finest assortment of meats of every kind, such as beef, mut ton, pork, etc., at bit butcher shop, corner of Eighth street and Washington avenuo. Anyone wanting fine steaks, chops, roasts' sausage, fresh and dried flsb, flesh or fowl, can be accommodated with the best in tbe market, and at tbe molt reasonable prices, by calling on Standi at any hour of the day. We take pleasure in com mending bis establishment to tbe public aa being Just tbe thing needed in that neighborhood. Mr. Standi is a gentle Ban worthy of patronage and if Tub Bulletin can increase bis custom it will gladly do It. l'"tf, NEW RAILROAD PROJECTS. CONCENTRATION OF 11UOAO AND NARROW OAUOES AT CAIIIO. T1IK PROPOSED RAILROAD CONVEN T10N AT PARIS, TENNESSEE. Mayor Lanidon, instructed by the city council, will appoint throe dolegates to attend tho railroad convention to bo held at Paris, Tennessee, on the 19th Inst, Pew of our readers are awaro of tho fact, that Cairo has a deep intcrost in tbe proposod convention, that it has been called to contrlbuto to tho accomplish ment of cortaln railroad projects, tho sue coss of which will greatly contrlbuto to the prosperity of our city. During many years our citizens have been struggling to compel a recognition of Cairo s commercial importance to mako this placo a railroad centre, and to build up hero a great city. Wo havo at last compelled this recognition, and there is now nothing to prevont us from taking tho position among the cities of tho coun try to which our geographical position ontitlcs us. Mr. J. Edgar Thomson, in a letter addressed to tho London bankers, who placed tho $0,000,000 loan of tho Allegheny Valley company, guaranteed by the Pennsylvania Railroad company, of which be is prcsldont, speaks of 'Cairo as ono of tho great commercial centres of the West. He says: "It thorefore be came necessary for tho success of the Pennslyvania railroad com pany that it should securo lines under iti own control extending from iti western terminus to the commer cial centres of tbe west, viz: Cleveland) Chicago, St. Louis, CAIRO, Louisville, Cincinnati, etc, all of which has been ac complished.'' It has been accomplished by the construction of the Cairo and Vin- cennea road. Mr. Thomas Allen alio rec ognises the importance of this point, and is hastening the construction of tbe Cairo and Fulton road. So also do tho Mississippi Central, and Mobile and Ohio roads, and both are in haste to make thii city their northern terminus. But there are other railroad projects on foot, created by this now general recognition of tho importance of Cairo as a railroad centre. Ono is to oxtond the Hotly Springs, Brownivillo and Ohio rail- road, reduced to athreo foot gauge, Into a road rrom Cairo through Union City, Brownsville and Bolivar, Tonnesieo, and throught Ripley, Louisville, etc, Missis sippi, to Ship Island or Mississippi City on the gulf. Mr. J. D. Smith, tho presi dent of tbe H. S., B. & O. railroad, in a letter to Col. Taylor, lays : "If we can get reasonable assistance from your city wo will at once change the gauge of our road to three feet and go to work to make ours the connecting link between the Cairo and St..Louis narrow gauge and tho Middle ton, Ripley and Ship Island narrow gauge railroads, and in that event it would bo better to make the terminus or beginning of our road in the city of Cairo In placo of opposite tuocity." Another movomont is on foot in Ton ncssee, and Alabama, for a narrow-gauge railway connection botween Cairo, and points South. It is proposed to build two narrow-gauge roadi, one from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to Paris, Tennessee; and one from Uuntivillo, Alabama, via Columbia, Tenncssoo, to.Paris, Tennessee, and to tbero havo these two roads unite in a union road to Cairo. Tho movomcnt U assum ing a good doal of strongtb, and the con ventlon at Paris, on tho 19tb, to which, Cairo will send delegates, is to further thii project. Tho Memphis "Appeal" of 2d Inst., speaking of this road, sayi : Tbe Columbia 'Herald' says that arrange ments have beeu made to bold a convention on Tuesday, December 19, at Pari, Tennes see, to take steps to continue the Duck River Valley railroad from Johnsonvllle to Cairo. Illinois. It is onlv onahumlriil mll. from Johnsonvllle to Cairo, and rrom Culro to SL Louis it is one hundred and fnrtv-invim miles. A railroad with a gauge of three feet, from St. Louis to Cairo, will be com pleted this winter. This road runs foi forty inues inrougu uio gruui ininois coal Ueius. It is the intention to connect this road with the Duck Rlvor Valley railroad at Johnson vllle, on the Tennessee river, by the road uiruuu x ur. ueicKuiea win no in attend ance lrom all points between Fayctteville, Tennessee, and Cairo, llllnnln. llnntwii J Alabama, should also be represented. It may be well to state that a branch or this roau is to uc cxieuueu w Jackson or llollvar, aud thence to Memphis. Tbe South has uot wealth or density or population, save on great through routes, to do more than build narrow gauge roads. Col. Falkner leads the way to the bouth's regeneration. Col. Wra. J.Sykes.of tho National Nar row Guago committee, is laboring very industriously in tbe intorest of this pro ject. Ho addressed tho pooplu of Paris, Tennetsee,on tho subjoct, last Monday, and proposes to speak alungtbo line of tbe pro posed road through Mayileld, Kentucky, to thii city. Tho convention at Parli will probably decide the fate of thii project to important to Cairo, and we therefore hopo tho mayor will select as our dologatci onorgotic citi zens, who understand our wants and ne cessities, and can speak with authority for our city.
