Yesterday morning the colored peoplo
ot tho A. M. E. church took possession of
the Hibernian engine house and surprised
the members of the company by moving
the engines, hose cart, etc. into the street.
They had obtained permission to occupy
the hall from two members of tho company,
but tho matter had not been brought beforo
tho meeting, and hence tho members were
somewhat indignant aud, perhaps, justly so.
Yesterday morning, upon opening his

contained, and then cut two panes of glass

-Mr. S. P. Bennett, of the firm of Green
Wood & Bennett, yesterday, met with an
accident at the corner of Eighteenth an
Washington that might havo resulted scr
iously. Ho was driving along with his
little daughter by his sido, when in some
manner ho fell out of tho sleigh, his feet
at the sarao time becoming fastened
in it. Tho horse being gentle, and ap
parcntly recognizing that its driver was in a
perilious condition, stopped still. Had it
continued on its way. Sir. B. would hnve
been seriously bruised or killed.
Shed's hall was the scene of much
pleasure last night, it being the occasion of
the butchers' ball. Tho various commit
tees which had been appointed to manage
the ball, had doue their duties
well, a fact which tho pleasant
manner in which the evening was spent
amply attested. The attendance- was large,
the fun unbounded and tho affair ended,
no doubt, to the satisfaction of all
who participated. One of tho principle
features, and which afforded much amuse
ments, was tho presentation of an appro
priate comedy by a number of our citizens,
who acquitted themselves creditably.
At the last meeting of the fire depart
ment, the matter ol organizing a hook aud
ladder company wus thoroughly discussed,
and it wus agreed that at the next regular
meeting of the department such a company
should be organized. We have but few
houses in Cairo that are over two stories
high, and hence it would appear that there
is but little need for the services of such a
company, the organization of which must
necessarily be very expensive. We sug-
(pi.uf lmi'nvfir flm tlin litv pfinnpil Cllrmlv
each of our companies with an extension
ladder which can be easily carried to the
fire. More than this is really not neces
sary. St. Louis is building great expectations
on her future as a grain market, as 6,104,
838 bushels were shipped thence down the
river last year, and 12,538,801 during the
first nine months of 1880. Five years ago
bargo shipments down tho Mississippi did
not amount to much, but the business is
now assuming great proportions, as, besides
the three companies already engaged, Jay
Gould has formed another with $800,000
capital that is to employ seveu steamboats
and fifty barges, with a capacity of 50,000
bushels of wheat a piece. These crafts will,
during tho winter months at least, make
Cairo their headquarters and add not a
little to our prosperity.
The wedding of Miss Mary Galvin and
Mr. Malachi Cullinan took place at St.
Joseph's Catholic church yesterday fore
noon at 10:30 o'clock. The contracting
couple were appropriately dressed and at

happiness. Tho ceremony was performed J

friends of the bride and groom, and after
the ceremony tho newly made man and
wife went to their home on Ceutro street,
where grand preparations lor their re
coption had been made, and where a
many friends gathered in tho evening to
offer their congratulations and to take part
in the festivities. The Bulletin joins its
hearty good wishes with those of their
It is a question whether Coroner Fitz
gerald, elected this month, will not hold of
fice until 1884, since under tho provisionsof
the constitutional amendment lately adopt
ed, coroners are to be elected to hold
officio for four years. All that the consti
tution, as amended, says is, that a coroner
shall be elected in 1884 to hold offico for
four years. There is no provision of the
constitution under which the legislature
enn pass an act providing for tho election
of a coroner two years hence; and any such
provision now existing must necessarily fall
because there is no constitutional provision
on which to base it. Therefore, presum
ably, tho coroner of Alexander county ond
the other counties of this state will hold
office until their successors shall be elected
and qualified, which may not bo for four
We are a little lato in mentioning the
occurrence, but since it is a fact tho pub
lication of which can do no harm, we freely
give it place. A republican candidate for
one of our county offices, whoso friends had
tickled him with tho idea that thcro was
some chance for his election, was bo
thoroughly impressed with tho belief that
he would defeat his independent opponent
that he wns overheard tulking In his sleep,
only a few nights sinco. He spoke bo loud
that a reporter of The Bulletin heard
him as he was passing on the street, and
by tho light of a lantern jotted down his
remarks, Dreaming that lie was elected,
the camliduto was addressing in imagina
tion a crowd of his "fellow-citizens" who
had culled with a brussbandtocongratulato
him upon his election. Said he: "My
heart is touched by this demonstration, gen
tlemen. To use a familiar expression, I am
lull too full fur articulation. I thank you
kindly for your congratulations. I hope
I may show myself worthy of your coafl-
donco though I know that the position to
which you liavo elevated nie is ono of
grave responsibility and almost perilous

Tho Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, the Baptist
minister of Brooklyn, who was elected as a
greenbneker congressman, has been ex
pressing his views on the question of eter
nity. He seems to hold about the same un
orthodox opinions on the subject as do Hen
ry Ward Beecher and Rev. Bob Ingersoll.
His ideas about the futuro world and tho
proportion ot peoplo who go to eter
nal damnation wcie given quite succinct
ly in his sermon recently delivered in
which he said : "They would havo us be-
lievo that God created 1,200,000,000 human
beings every generation, picks out say 100,-
000,000 to be saved, and makes a Niagara
of condemned souls of the other 1,100,000,
000. It is monstrous. It is not in the
Bible, and I should not believe it if it were
thcro." It is a cleur case. The reverend
gentleman stands in need of tlic religious

The sacred concert at the Presbyterian
church, last niglir, was beyond all doubt
the greatest attraction of tho evening and
one ot the finest of its kind riven in

McKee, Mrs. J. M. Lansdcn, Mrs. Stans-
bury, Miss Ella Bobbins, and Messrs. N.
Hacker, Walt. McKee and J. S. Ais-
thorpe. A number of others, whose names
we did not learn, also took part in several
of tho choruses. The programme was car
ried out to the letter from beginning to end,
and had it been much longer the in

THE PROPOSED BANKRUPT LAW.
We havo received a copy of Judge Low
ell's bankrupt law, and a few words in
regard to it will doubtless be of interest to
the merchants of Cairo. The necessity of a
national bankrupt law is very generally
recognized. In the large cities, particu
larly, merchants who sell goods in all sec
tions of tho couutry, demand a uniform
law for the collection and distribution of
the assets of bankrupts. They cannot
depend upon tho uncertain and
inefficient insolvent laws of tho
different states. Indeed, they have
neither the time nor the inclination to
mako themselves acquainted with them.
These laws uro often very unjust and dis
criminate against creditors outside of the
state. What is wanted is a law that puts
all creditors upon an equal footing, and by
authority of which bankrupt estates can be
settled speedily and inexpensively, Such a
law is provided by Judgo Lowell's bill now
before congress. This bill, which was in
troduced at the lust session of congress, has
been greatly modified and improved, and
its passago will bo strongly urged
this winter. Tho old bankrupt law
was repealed not because there was
any particular opposition to a bankrupt
law, but because that law had so many ob
jectionable features. When a bankrupt es
tato got into tho bankrupt court, it gen
erally stayed there until it was consumed
by tho fees. Of course, neither creditors
nor debtors had any uso for a law that
benefitod no ono except its administrators
and the lawyers. Judgo Lowell's bill avoids
tho objections which wero raised to tho
former act. As far as possible
small salaries arc paid, nnd when
fees are allowed they aro so limit
ed and restricted that no advantages ac
crue to thoso receiving them by keeping
business uusettled. The chief aim of the
CLOTH 1 A1 G HOUSE
Is"! :.::i:::;':'!s fss';i;7
bill is to discourage delay and expenses,
mid to make as much as possible for t tic
creditors out of bankrupt estates. Creditors
themselves are authorized'to fix the com
pensation of assigtiers and registers, being
paid a salary, have no interest whatever in
the cases brought before them. Perfection
is not claimed for Judge Lowell's bill, but
there is no question that it is a great im
provement on the repealed act, and hence
The Bulletin favors its adoption.
