Yesterday was the coldest day of the
season. Just how cold it was, is tlifintilt
to determine, tho thermometers of the
city ranging from four degrees below to ten
degrees above zero at the same hour of the
day, being greatly influenced, of cours", by
the surroundings. It is safe to say, however,
that the mercury ranged closely upon zero

While Capt.Tonant was superintending

was burglariously entered some time Tues

other articles lippropriated by tho nv-'cal or
rascals were a lot of fine revolvers. Unless
some citizen succeeds in killing a house
breaker before long, we shall have a per
fect epidemic of burglaries. We are s
orry that Henderson was not furnished lli3
opportunity to perforate his visitor.

We tliio.v this out as a f ithetiy admonition
to thu responsible lads who have kept the
"canopy" in the vicinity of Thirteenth and
Washington, so obscured with snow balls,
that the blessed sun, has not reached the
earth, there, for the full week past. We
are simply interposing a plea for sunshine.
A penniless female cripple who found
shelter in the round house Monday night
und u!l day Tuesday, was still in the city
yesterday. She hobbles about on crutches,
and gives it out that she came all the way
from ban Francisco. As is general ly the
cast! with destitute travelers, she lives "a
a Ion;: ways" from Cairo. This woman
wanted to reauh Mississippi, and hadn't a
cent to make a start on. The boys ot the
round house furnished her food during her
stay among them, and give her credit for
being a "tremendous cater." Who has sup
plied her since, wo are not inf.irmod.

Some folks have a strange idea as to
the ingredients essential to the compound
ing of a local item. Yesterday we held our
liMt at a physician's head, ami demanded
the "mulling gears" of u local item, lie
protested that Jie was wholly unable to sup
ply the demand. In les- than live minutes
afterwards we learned from another parly,
that only a few hours had elapsed since the
physician cut a bullet out of a n tin's lei
toe man Having aceiileully shot himself.
Shortly afterwards we accosted anotheriiti

thai he didn't know a thing." Within the

up his dully nuvsof local intelligence.
"Men are s dilVercnl."
There wits quite a hubUb on Ti nth
fctreet Mew Year's day, that owed its origin
to the shooting of a dog. The dog had
made a New Year's call on a neighboring
dog, end obj rting to his welcome, or some
thing of that serf, hi cant'! rather ugly, so
much so that he attempted to bite a child
that attempted to drive hici cll'llie prnitis' s.
A colored man, seeing or becoming cogniz
ant of this vicious conduct on llie part of
the visiting dog, took his shot gun and shot
him. Willi a terrific howl tin wound d
animal gained the street, uh. ie, after a
time, some merciful person put him out of
his misery. Such, at least, is our Inform

While Did; Adams' f o-horse teiiii
was standing near the court house, Tuesday
night, something occurred to,fiighten it
into :i runaway scrape. It dashed down
Ttveniielh street ut a furious rate, demolish

of Cap'uin MeKiniuyV re.'.ideiiec, und final
ly striking the Captain's h.mp pott, and
leveling that also. It appearing that Rich

that if he subiuided to the lo-s of the shade

A steamboat deck-hand had some
words with the negro inmates of the rear
of the Vincent block, Tuesday afternoon,
and concluded the quarrel by dashing a
brick bat through llie window. Wilson
and Shei'han happening along, took him in
charge, but had proceeded hut. a short dis
tance with him before ho broke away and
ran. Sheehan fired at the fugitive, und both
officers following him clos.dv, caught him
again in Mrs. Tim O'Callihan's basement,
to effect an entrance into which he had
dashed in another window. WIiIIj on the
way to the calaboose the officers were sur
rounded by a crowd, through tin! interfer

another opportunity to escape, and lie
promptly improved it by rushing into the

however, they espied their nun, and eseorl

Cairo, 'o-day, u number of homes that pre
sent senes of want and destitution of which
the comfortably silr.up d citizen has never
dreaimd ; and which can be seen and ap
preciated through delicate, cautious pi r-on-al
investigation, only. We have in our
mind's eye three families who have lueii un
able to keep the wolf ol gaunt hunger from
the door, und yet w lese pride has nerved
them tu endure the pangs ot litingi r rutin r
than to make their (rue ci edition known.
Their poverty has not destroyed their self
respect, and it is ti - t saying too much, per-
I haps, to say thut seine of tin 111 would actu
ally starve before they would beg. No or
ganized charities could reach this class.
Their destitution and needs, if learned at
all, must bo learned, as we haves aid, through
tho cllbrts of those wdio do not hold that po
verty and respeclabiiily are antagonisms;
those who can subordinate their feelings of
superior. ty to feelings of genuine and unos
tentatious sympathy. To such of our bene
volent ladies and gentlemen as feel llietn
solvcs equal to this work wdio feel thut
they can give words of genuine sympathy as
well as alms, we commend the poor who are
tin proud to confess their poverty.
