At a late meeting Of the DeltA Fire

ble dleii'Ion, decided to give a ball.
Tliey Iuiti forom time eontemiIatM a
demoii'tratlon of thU kind', hut wishing
to make it a complete aiicccM, thought It
lest not to make the attempt until they had
everything In proper order. The ball
given by this company, two years ago on
the steamer Great Id-public, was the larg-
ht of the kind ever given hi Cairo, nud
they will endeavor to make this one
qually as grand an aflalras that, In everv
particular. A committee has been ap
pointed to confer with the capbdu of the
real Ilcpubllc, for the purpov of char
tering her for their ball this year, but
hether they have succeeded or not, we
have not yet learned.
The ordination of I!. Crlcc for the pas
torate of the Little Union Church, Jle

to order by Itev. T. .1. Shore", of Cairo.
After examination of his christian record
and call to the ministry, the council, be
ing fully satisfied with his views on the

The Convent hall, last nigh!, as nu the
one previous, was lllled full of our citi
zens to witness the performance of the
Convent pupils. On this occasion the
principal attraction was the little drama.
In two acts, entitled "The Inheritance."
Misses Kate Healy, Lucia Bugg, Mary
McCarthy, Mary Sweeney' anil llattle
Ucarden enacted the several characters.
Each one played her part to perfection,
nndcach, In her turn, received tho ap
plauio'of he audience, which fully njw
predated the ellurts ol the players to
please. Between the acts of the drama,
Miss Augiuta Scliuh sang u bountiful
piece, for which &ho was very highly
complimented. After the second and
last acts Mksses Olmstead and Schuh sang
a vocal duett, called "Music and Her
Sister." Mlsu Ln'ela Bugg then per
formed an Instrumental piece, entitled
"Evangeline," which was loudly encored
by the audience. La-t, but by no means
least, came "Musette do Nina," by Miss
Lucy D. Wilson. This Is a most charm
ing pleooof mnslc, and was executed In a
'very; skill ful and plenslnr manner, for
which Miss Wilson was the recipient of
compliments from every side. This was
the closing entertainment for the year.

Yesterday morning a lady uliout thirty
years of age, called at Judge Bird's otllee
and stated to the Judge that she w ished
to have a warrant Issued for the arrest of
a lady well known hi Cairo, tho charge
being an assault with Intent to murder.
A reporter ol this paper who was In tin1
maglrtrate's ofllce at the time, became in
tercted In the cac. and yesterday after
noon Called upon the lady who had the
warrant Dsucd, and learned the following
facts Iu regard to the matter :
It seems for the past two nights lady
No. 2's husband has Iwn absent
from home, and from some cause,
unknown to lady No. 1, lady No. 2 has
got It hito her head that her husband was
at laily No. Ps hou-e, which made her
very angry, and she determined to put an
end to the business at oner. Aecord
nK't he procured a revolver, went to
lady No. l's house, aoout six o'clock yes
terday morning while she was yetln lied,
went up stairs to her bed-room, knocked
at the door, was told to ''come In,"
which she did, and, liefore lady No. 1
had time to ask why she was Indebted to
her for a call so early iu the morning,
lady No. 2 brought the revolver from her
pocket, drew a "bead" on lady No. l's
heart, and paid, smilingly: "You
,I'U klllyou.you'vestolcn my luubaud,
and I'm going to kill you." But, before
she had time to discharge the weapon, a
young man, who was iu the hon-e at the
time, succeeded In getting the revolver
away from lody No. 2, who, when she
paw she could not carry out her plan at
that time, became furious and exclaimed:
"If I don't kill you now, I'll do It if yon
ever pass my house." After some strong
talk bestdc what Is quoted above, lady
No. 2 left the hou-e, and lady No. 1 got
up, went to Judge Bird's otllce,' and, as
stated above, had a warrnnEUsued fortbo
nrre.-tof lady No. 2 and plaeert it In Ihe
hands of au olllcer, who w ent In search
f her, but up to this time nothing has
leeu seen or heard of that exasperated
personage. Ludy No. I declared tbatshe
had never even spoken to the husband,
that she would not know him' If -lie saw
him, and that she never taw lady No 2
until she made her appearance U-fore her
so unceremoniously yesterday morning.
The young man of whom we speak, de
clared that lady No. 2 had "the devil Iu
her eye," and that If he had not been there
to stop her, she would have doiie what
she so strongly vowed she had come to
do. Tho neighbors ot lady No. 1 say
that she has lived at her present abode for
tho past two mouths, that she Is
married, that her husband Is alive and
well, and that if ther w i any reason for
such Misplclons'on the -lal ol lady No.
2, they could not havu 1'ailfd to have
learned them, but that ll.cy ' ie never
seen nor heard anything I! .... would lead
them to believe that lady No. 1 and lady
No. 2's husband were on Intimate term?,
but all of them are quite rcndy.und will
ing to vphch" for her good conduct, and
yjthn tlftfy bejieve her to ho a very
(pilot ' olid good lady. Lady 'o. 1 has
been, (hiring her sojourn in lids city, an
