Mike Shut wai bound over yeiter day in the mm of $300 to not kill any Xody, and to eipeclaly iparo tho lives of IBob Andrewi and fc. Ferguion. Henry Flanniean and Henry Shor nan. two Paducah men. were up before Iron yesterday, charged with their bciet ting sin. Pope allowed them to get out of town, gWlng them ten minutes time. The 'Sun compliments our friend air. McKenzle, by saying that he would -make an aicallont nnllce magistrate Vie acre with our ncichbor, emphatically. It was quite amusing to see lotno of ;n.r. mhn iinvrt were nearer a aUer than to eat a good beef stake, trying to break In work-cattle yesterday. They lad moro drivers than yoeks of oxen. That is what we call taking the epizootic Jllemma by the horns. Tno Pulaski 'Patriot' blows up tho 3alro 'Sun.' Why can't our lUdlcal friends out of town keep their pens and tongues off our Radical friends In town. Stewart, of the Brm of Stewart & 3holsom, is absent from the city laying in a new stock of winter goods. Luckless Sacket, a sickly, friendless and penniless fellow, was forwarded yei terday to Memphis by the county author ities. Sackott has a mother living at Memphis, and the creduloui man actually thinks his brother will be glad to see him; One of the intellectual gen tlomen who preserve the peace of this bellecronl city, by regularly drawing the salary, hat expressed his Jdlsplcasure; at the uso of military tactici by Til! Bulletin; ci vilian nomenclature. There will bo an excursion over tho Cairo & Vincenncs railroad on tho 17th init. A train will run on that day through Irom Vincennes to Cairo, and return tho next day. Arrangements are being made for a celebratlonjof tbe'event. Captain Wm. Keller Informs us that the epizootic has been, and is, very had Tho chief of police and a man named Arnold tackled n darkle. In his don tho other morning, and didn't como off with flying colors. Whllo tho darklo engagod tho chief a ferocious dog attacked the Ar. nnld, and It was nip and tuck for awhile. Finally the darklo got away from tho chief and Arnold got awny from the dog. Ar nold has been In search of a hydrophobia doctor. His log is Getting bettor. Tho teeth o( tho dog did not go cntlroly through. Tho Paducah 'Kentuckian' sadly con- tomplatos tho onergy of Cairo, which has mide this point n railroad centre, nnd meekly looks forward to the tlmo when (ho necessities of commcrco will Joree upon l'ttducith tho railroads her cnergotlc citizens now deservo, but which her moss Covered and self-satisfied public men dep rccato. Paducah will ascertain that tho gods only help those who liolp themselves and that if she waits until events force her to be prosperous tho will wait in vnln At ono time, Paducah manlfcited n llttlo energy and frightened Cairo n little. In our alarm nt the movement! of our then rival, wo deprecated Paducah, and abused the llttlo city ihamvfully; but wo huvo now run too far ahead of her to be Joaloui any longer. In our assured pros perity, wo look at tho suplnencss of our little neighbor with sorrow, and are anx lous that sho should "wako up." We of Cairo, will soon need a pleasant llttlo vll lage like Paducah, to which wo may re' tire for rest from tho bustle- and noiio of tho metropolis of the Miiilsilppi valloy, and Paducah will probably to our private resort; but not unless It should manifest a llttlo moro energy than at presont. Wo shall want rotlromont; but not as much as tho present condition of that dull llttlo town would afford. We thercforo hope tho good pooplo of Patlucnb may bo induc ed to foel that thero is a necessity for a little manifestation ot energy on tholr partat this time, or, at the least, during tho present contury.

Cairo and St. Louis railroad men, and officers of the Illinois Central wero in tho city yesterday. If they wero hero on any important business they did not seo proper to inform us of the fact. We presume they visited our city for the benefit of their health. ''Cairo is rapidly becoming a railroad centre," says a Paducah paper. Tho Paducah paper has at last been compelled to admit this fact. "We told you so." Mr. Barkley, a well-known grain dealer of this city, died, after a very brief Illness, on Thursday night. Tbe deceased has relatives In Now Orleans, to which city ills remains will probably be removed. Three barges of railroad iron, for tho Cairo and St. Louis railroad, wero landed at this city on Wednoiday last. Track laying will commence at this city im mediately. Capt. Ilalliday seems to bo tho favor ito of the peoplo for mayor, but be shud ders at the suggestion of the possibility ol promotion to the greatest office in the gift of the great people of the great city of Cairo. II would prefer a cup of cold "pUon" to tbe infliction. The 'Sun,' in a notice of the sudden death of William M. Barkely, at the St. Charles, says Mr. George Martin, of Now Orleans, was bis uncle. This is incorrect. Mr. Martin is not a relative of tho de ceased. Honry Plaoert, being the best if not lowest bidder, received the contract from the county court for maintaining tbe pau pers of this county. Planort will, in other words, run the Poor farm, and if he finds in tbe business perfect enjoyment, he will be one of tho most fortunate ot mortals. Four hundred and flfty-iix dollars is the sum allowed by tbe county court to St. Mary's Infirmary for taking euro of tick paupers during the lust three months. These paupers, who burden our tax-payers, come to Cairo from tho four quarters of the globe. A bible, bound by Mr. Huols of Tub Bulletin bindery, for a gentlotnan at Jacksoa, Tennessee, will bo on exhibition at Rockwell & Co's. to-day. It Is all hand work, and we vonturo to say is as fine work ai can be done by any binder any where. Call at Rockwell's and look at it. Plain David T. Llnegar is back from Springfield. Mr. Llnegar won his spurs in the late canvass and wo bopu he muy receive the United Slates District At torneyship as a "reward of morlt." He j9 an able lawyer, a hard worker fur hit party, and we beliovo bis appointment would give goneral satisfaction in Egypt, Ibrce sugar bowls and a lot of other queens-ware, were broken over tbe head of a boarder at ono of our hotols yesterday. Tbe owner of the uufortunato head in tuited one of the female waiters, and an other boarder resented the insult by fling ing table ware at that bead. Tho head was not broken. Tbe buiy time of tbe saloon-keepers baa arrived. They are all reaping a har vest now. A blait at them from tho pul pit it in order. It will make them angry, and will furnish tbe city with a subject of conversation for awbllo. Our flop bat bacom ttale, and we must bave something new. If somebody don't make a temper net tpMeh soon, we will be compelled to flop back to the Democracy. Thlnji must lwkspt lively. Grand Musical Entertainment. J , Parks, at the "Llttlo Kentuckian," wishos to announco that he will, on Satur day ovcnlng, Dccombcr 7, give a grand musical entertainment at his saloon and restaurant. Musicians of colobrity will bo on hand, and overy pains will be taken, and no exponso spared to make tho enter tainment a grand success. Tho public is invited. It J. Q. Stancil wishes everybody to know that ho keeps tho finest assortment of meats of overy kind, such as bcof, mut ton, pork, etc., at his butchor shop, corner of Eighth streot and Washington avonuo: Anyone wanting fine steaks, chops, roasU, sausage, tresti and dried tlsli, llesb or fowl, can bo accommodated with tho beet In tho market, und at tho most rensonablo prices, by calling on Standi at nny hour ot tne day. Wo tnko plcasuro In com mending his establishment to tho public as being Just tho thing needed in that neighborhood. Mr. Stancil is a gentle man worthy of patronage and if The Bulletin can increase his custom It will gladly do it. 1'2-Ctf. We would call tho attontlon of tho pub lic to the fact that Jack Winter keeps and will have on exhibition to-night, tho larg est assortment of game, fresh meats, poul try, flih, fruits and Ohio butter, evor offered for sale to tho citizens of Cairo; besides all this, ha makes a specialty of fresh oysters, which ho is selling to fami lies for the small sum of forty cents, and intends, if ho gets iu(Bcient patronage, to putthem still lower. His stand and goods aro always neat and clean, and wo adviso ovorbody to go around this evening and look at bis market and Judgo for them selves, If It is only to take a peop at those largo keg oysters which ho soil by the dozen, quart or gallon. Also that nlco minco meal andsausago, gotten up by him self. No humbug. It. See tho New York atore'i advertise ment of Oysters, by tho can, quart or gal lon.
