advisf d of the fact.
Axley and Wilson arrested a white
man, yesterday, named Dave Coleman, and
took him before Squire Robinson, to an
swer h charge of vagrancy, lie was proven
an unniittigated, unconscionable; vag, and
the Squire lined him $100 and the official

- A report not very well defined, how
ever, came in front the country, yesterday,
I to the effect that a young man mimed John
rinllips attended a dance near Unity,
Thursday night, and was a participant in
a brawl of a very serious character. It is
said that Phillips was so severely beaten
that death is certain to be the result of bis
injuries. One individual with whom we
conversed ha 1 heard that he died yester
day morning. We d m't vouch for the ac
curacy of the story.
The pasccngcr train on the Mississip

Friday was delayed eight or ten hours by
a mishap at ome point in Louisiana. Some
infernal liend, bent upon robbery perhaps,

of the train dashed off the track and down
an embankment, killing the engineer and
fireman. Pull particulars could not be ob

white tickets come from ("This gruff inquiry
was addressed to TiiK Bui.i.KTfN reporter,
as he delivered his Boyton ticket at the
steps of the steamer Idlewild yesterday.
The tickets were paid for in local notices at
tlie rate of about one, dollar each. If they
were not genuine, the individual iu qties
tion should not have received them. If
they wkhk genuine, Mr. Boyton was quite
unfortunate in the selection of his ticket
The imputation of wrong-doing from
which Messrs. lirown and (libbs so success
fully relieve themselves by their card else
where, escaped our atteution. Tu pertons
who know either gentleman, the defense
made will seem a work ot supererogation.
Both of them are high-toned honorable
gentlemen, und are among the last men iu

would suspect of the littleness and inhu
manity charged to them. Their name's,
where knowu, carry their own vindication.
Capt. Boyton had quite a siege of it tit
Paducaii, dodging the "pirate ships, load
ed with cheap people, who sought to wit
ness the Captains aquatic evolutions free of
charge'. The Idlewiid was the recognized
boat, and the Captain tried to restrict view
of his performances to tli passengers on that
boat. And the boat, lending its etfoits to
hide him, reminded one of the strategy of
the mother hen to protect her hrowd from
the foraging hawk. The "brood was suc
cessfully protected, however, and the "pirate
boats," as Boyton is wont to call them,
steamed back to Paducah, the half-price
passngnrs no doubt cursing the. economic
suggestion that kept tlcm ofT the Idlewild.
--Tim Bui.i.i'.TiN has learned by experi
ence, that it is an immensely unprofitable
business to "lake sid' .s'' in corporation elec
tion where the candidates base their claims
upon personal merit or public service. It
has tried it Ti:k Bfi.l.i.Tl.v has -and
found that while it cnrnul the praises of
those for wliom it lals.red, it invoked the
cur-es o' those whom it opposed. The
curses came duly to hand ; but if the praises
were forwarded, they miscarried. Profit
ing by this experience we are not "jumping
in" as freely as f. riiu-i !y. We are some
what inclined l!ri way, however, an I
would gratify the inclination on the aac.r
of the mom. 'lit if the pay sound rr.tvts
were only convertible into money.
A gunwale lying inside the wharf
boat was covered over yesterday, as was
the surface of tlie water near it, with straw
and rubbish that had been swept from the
wharf-boat. A town boy, knowing what he
was about, jumped down upon the gun
wale and walked ashore, A stranger not
ing this performance, concluded he would
reach the shore in the same manner. Re
made the jump, and to his utter astonish
ment, found no bottom until he stood shoul
der deep iii the river. Tie- thousand peo-
pie on the wharf raised a shout, some one
cried. "U tvtoii, and lor a minute or two
the victim of the mishap was honored as
the hero of the occasion.
B :fore the arrival of the hour for Cap
tain Biytnn to have Shawneetown, the
small steamers there organized excursions
to tollow linn down the river. J he conipe -
tition for passenger, became, so animated
that the price for the round trip was finully
put down to ten cents. Tin Captain re
ceiving an intimation of the proposed ex
cursions, gave the originators to understand
that unless they pledged themselves to ap
p'y half the gross receipts to the relief of
the d 'serving poor of Shawnce'own, he
would defeat their schemes by postponing
his d-parture until after nightfall. The
pledge was given, and, if it was observed,
the poor of Shawneetown were aided, in a
time of need, to the extent of fifty or one
hundred dollars.
- From Dr. Now.'itne)', of Bu'ech Ridge,
we learned yesterday that during tho after
noun of th" day before, the dwelling house
of Riley Lane, of Dog Tooth Bend, caught
tire, and, with its entire contents, was des
troyed. The flue or chimney being defec
tive, it is said the wind forced the sparkaiu
to the lott or attic of the building. At all
events when the flames were first dieeov.
ered the entire roof was involved, and in a
few moments the whole building was to

The winter's supply of meats and a lot 0f

The presentation of his colors to Cap
tain Boyton, by Miss Pitcher, was prec eded
by the following brief address:
Capt. Uovto.n: As one of Cairo's
daughters with pride I present you your
colors, the International life-saving Hag,
sacredly respected upon e very sea and upon
every battle field of the world. In the
holy cause of humanity the bearing of
"The Geneva Cross." with its eloquent
"from the bleak sboree of the ' to the lumls
where the Puttier of Waters,
Seucn the bills in bia hamln and dra; them itowu
to the Ocean,"
cannot fail of its moral effect, 'while your
deed, Ciipt. Boyton, teaches also the noble
lesson, "thut what men dare, they can do."
In behalf of Cairo, I wish you God speed
in your voyage to the sea. nnd over all the
seas of life. Our beloved Ohio has bom
you to us safely. We commend you with
our prayers, to the mightier wafers of the
Captain Boyton received the colors with
thanks, felicitously remarking that his po
sition was not provocative of much speech
nuking. The lady teachers in the Cairo public
school to whom specific reference has not
beeu made, are Miss Mo! lie Riley, Miss
Fanny Alvord, Miss Maggie Ijflin, Mi
Ella Walbii lg", Miss Ktta Koss, Mies IIo
Csn and Mis KUa Aruifctrnug. Six of these
young ladies are graduates of the Cairo
public schools, and are serving their third
year as teachers. We pay them no under
compliment when we say that, hiving been
educated in the public school, they are es
pecially adapted, by reasini of their educa
tion, for public school service. Having had
the advantage of tlie best teachers
that couid be brought to (.!ro. they wer
familiarized with the best und most gener
ally aonruved methods' of iino .rtinL' in
struction, nnd with the excellent sv-tein ofi
gov-ratu 'at tint li n contributed s i ni'V h
to taegno l n inie 01 our pu die school.
With the t .wption of Mis Alvord,
all the young ludi"- named
were raised directly in Cairo or in its im
mediate vicinity ; and now that thi-y have
demonstrated their capacity to teach suc
cessfully, we take a for granted that the j
Board of Kducatioii will endeavor to m- I
cure their servic s the coming year. Mi.ss I
Alvord is a teacher of m.,re enlarged expe

It happened, how ever, that the inanoevers
of the robbers were seen by a (adored man
who at once ti'ive information to officer
Cain. The robber' were promptly -taken
under arrest, mi 1 Joseph carted to the
office of Squire Robinson : but being too

himself, was taken to the calaboose. Tin
case will be heard to-morrow.
A crowd ot fifteen hundred or two
thousand people gathered in Cairo, yester
day, to w itness the urrival of ("upturn Boy
ton. As many as tour or five hundred cume
in by railroad and other means of convey
ance from the suiruunding country. Be
tween 2 and IJ o'clock in the afternoon, the
steamer Idlewild with BOO or 400 persons
oa board started up the river to meet the
Captain, who was in waiting ut a point on
the Kentucky shore opposite Capt. nalli
day's farm, lie left ihe shore and pnddled
out into ihe cut rent where
he was met by a yawl,
containing his advance uuent, Mr.
O'Shuughnchsy, a correspondent of the New
York Herald, the mute of the steamer and
Miss Fannie Pitcher. After the Cuptain had
completed sundry movements to indicate
the flexibility of the "armor" the yawl ap
proached, und Miss Pitcher bunded him his
colors, which he saluted with a discharge
of flro-aruis, and then continued his course;
to the Father of Waters, which lie
reached iu about twenty minutes.
Hero he sent off a detonating rocket and
sounded his trumpet a little "celebration"'
of lii own to distinguish the end of his
thousand mile owin in the wuters of the
Ohio. The stage of the steamer was then
lowered to hmi ; he came on board and im
mediately repaired to his state room. Oi
the arrival of the bout at th.; wharf he
MMUL 6. !S7.
passed ashore, and, pioneered through a
dense, surging mass of humanity by two
police officers, lie succeeded after a time
in reaching the Planters House, where
he was soon disposed of, after
the hospitable manner of the clever host of
of that popular establishment. The crowd
that gathered on the levee was simply im
mense. It was ajani, and the anxiety of
those in the rear to get 11 glinisu of the cur
iously appareled visitor, made it an un
comfortably tight jam. That women und
children were not i-mslwd and siiffoci.ted
is due to the fortunate circumstance that
they had the good sense to fore see the rush
and crush, and kept out of it. During thy
entire afternoon then., was no accident or
serious mishap or any character. (Juite a
number of strangers were unduly stimulat
ed; but taking the affair as a w hole it was
singularly free from utr'v, painful or disa
greeable occurrences.
The honest, respectable portion of our
people should set their seal of condemna
tion upon the practice that prevails among
ciindidates, of buying the votes .J colored
men. It is true that the mere fact of the
purchase doesn't always insure the delivery
of the votes; but the penalty the purchaser
thus receives is not equal to his offense-.
The habit has u debasing effect upon all
concerned, aud opens the way to the elec
tion of, not the best man, but the man who
has the longest purse. To such an extent
has this kind of trafiieing been carried
that no man can now offer himself for an
office, we rare not how insignificant or
thankless it may be, unless he is ut once
beseiged by colored men for money firt
and then fur meat, whisky or whatever the
candidate can most readily supply. It not
unfrequ' ntly occurs that the candidates are
thus "bled" to an txtcnt that the entire
emoluments of the (lice they serk would
fail to nuik.' good. As we have already raid,
thir practice is most r. pn henrible, not to
say criminal. It prostitutes the right of
suffrage to base us- s, and the respectable
people of Cairo owe it to the reputation of

at Beech Ridge, ley Miss oiiv'm Bowers,
with her pupils of l( school which .,e ha,

creditable both to teacher and pupils, -.bow
ing a good slate of discipline nnd freedom
from embarrassment, uncommon in country
school exhibitions. Recitation., essays. d,a-
logucs, tableaux, nnd now and then a little
sparkle of the dramatic, held a large audi
ence till past midnight. A tableau of a
"dead soldier," by a band of little fellows
not over twelve ycais old, was especially
good. In fact the whole affair was a suc

friends of Beech Midge, if they wir-li to
have a faithful nnd competent instructor fur
their children, to secure the services of Miss
Bowers a long as she can be had.

Editor Cairo Bulletin:
Looking over the columns of the Argus-
Journal we find that we are censured by a
correspondent from this locality, for "neg
lected duty" in the case of Hannah
Now to "business." In the first place- they
accuse the Poor-house keeper of retaining
the poor woman's clothing for a night's
lodging, which is false, as she left them on
her own account and never called for them.
(Remember the keer er lives in town and
has the Poor-house conducted by an able
assistunt.) Further, the keeper mmlu out a
list of articles remaining in his hand
and sent it to the county board for dispoeji
tion, who ordered the clothing sold to the
highest bidder.
Then comes an accusation aguinst Lai
Overseer for "duty neglected," and to raaks
it appear that Hannati Murray wu deni1
admission to the Pnor-house, which is (ao
curatcly speaking) a 1.11:, which tin record
will show.
We herewith attach some certificate
which may enlighten a few interested indi
viduals, as well as all others who earn U
know the facts:
"This is to certify that Dr. Gihbs, ove
seer of the poor, left orders with nut to re
ceive Mrs. Murray when she returned; btil
requested me to have her look out for a
home, every morning, nnd, as stated alxive,
receive her ut night. I further state, that
she was not sick when she left, and DeithrT
had r-he been during her stay at the pw
house. MoIJ.12 DntllAat,
Assistant Keeper of tho Poor.
