It Is not necessary to tell tho readers ot

ner In which lls K. II. Suvenly-'-lx was

Dr. Frit., pioprictorof that great and
powerful remedy of wlfch the readers of
the Bt u.Kits- have heard nnd read so
much during tho past two month", re
turned to the city yesterday, and In com
pany with his traveling compMilou, Air.
"Schlmcrhorn," gave one ot their street
entertainments to a very largo nnd Jubi
lant audience. There Is no doubt that
the "Indian Oil" sold by Ir. Frit. Is
one of the greatest remedies known,
aud will do nil that the doctor claims for
it. On his former visit to Cairo Messrs.
Barclay Bros., druggists, purchased a
large quantity of the oil, and lu less than
three weeks had sold very bottle. Ir.
Fritz has taken rooms at the Arlington
house, whero he will lie glad to receive
all who may call on him. Young ".Schhn-
erhorn," the doctor's traveling compan
ion, Is one ot the Unest Mntrcrs we have
heard In a long while. They glvo street
entertainments every evening, and It is
worth while to go and hear them.
Thescuers lu several places were let!
open until late Sunday morning before
efforts were made to close them. The
one near the liamble wagon factory was
not clo-cd until near noon, and the low
ground between Ohio Levee and the
Cairo and Vlnccnnes railroad track Is
now several feet under water. Had
proper precautions Ix-en taken to see that
the sewers were closed this might have
been prevented ; and we suggest to tho-c
whoso business it is to attend to such
matters, that lu tholutiire it shall be seen
to ib:it when the rivernm "on the rUe"
the ewers are properly closed bcloro thu
t'lwn Is half lull of water.
.Since writing the above we notice that
the sewer al tbe corner of VV:ililniu
avenue and Fifteenth street 1 nirtlally
open, and that considerable water Is ac
cumulating In that vicinity. This matter
should lie attended to at once.

Between one and two o'clock yesterday
nornlng a burglar broke into .Mr. Perry
owcr's residence on Twelllh street near
Commercial avenue, aud ncending the
stairs, tlic llrU room that ho got Into was
the ono occupied by the seivant girl.
The girl happened to bo awake, aud see
ing the burglar cuter the loom began to
scream. Tho burglar olng cloe to her
warned her to keep quiet or he would
kill her, nnd left tho loom, when the
drl got out ol bed and pushed the door
hut after him. The yllllau
came back, anil openiucr tlic door.
ngaiii warned her to keep quiet.
Hearing .Mr. Powers coming he ran down
stairs and out of the house. Ou going
down stairs Mr. Powers found the front
and back doors and one of the parlor
windows wide open. The thief had evi
dently made preparations lor a liaity
exit from the prcmles in caso of ills
covery. The girl says the man wore
long white whlkers ami was neatly
dressed lu dark clothes. The whisker
wera undoubtedly false, and worn for
disguise. Jlr. Powers could lind no
trace o( the burglar.
A few weeks ago Mr. Obeily was sent
to Washington, by thu City Council of
Cairo, to ascci tnlu whether an appro
priation to Improve the Mississippi river
at this place could be obtained from con
gress. Mr. Oberly has made a report to
the Finance Committee of tho Council,
nnd has said, he has no doubt au appro, i
pi iation lor the purpose named can he
obtained; but, hu adds, "It is not ut all
probable tho committee on com
merce, to which Mr. HarlzellV
bill lias been referred, will re
port lavorably upon lt,or uven report upon
it nt nil, unless the City Council,
the citizens of Cairo, river men,
and others who believe tlic appropriation
should bu made, make an ell'ort to con
vince the committee (hat It is necessary."
With his report Jlr. Oberly bus sent to
tho council tho form ol a memorial to
congress, which he suggests shall bo
adopted by the council aud tho people.
This Is a very Importnut matter, and the
people of Cairo should take an Interest In
it, and do nil they can to induce congress
to glvo to us thu security that will result
from the proper Improvement of tho river
ut this place.
