Mr. Wm. Waring, the baggage man on
the Sunday excursion train on the Cairo &
St. Louis railroad, fell from the
train when it was near Elco and was stun
ned tor quite a while, but not seriously
hurt. His absence from the tmiu was not
noticed until it had run about ten miles
without him, when the route was re
traced with the train part of the way and
with a hand-car the balance until he was
found lying in an insensible state by the
side of the track. He was brought to Cairo
and his injuries attended to by Dr. Gordon,
lift was able to be out again yesterday,
Yesterday was election day in Ballard
county Ky.The most important question be
fore the people was that involving the re
moval of the county seat from Blandville
to Wicklifle. The excitement was, of course,
very great and both parties were out in
full power; but it is the opinion ot persons
who were over there that the Wicklifle
party has the upper hand and that the seat
will be retained where it is. Late last
evening we heard the results from the four
most important precincts in the county,
viz: Barlow, Wicklifle, Arlington and
Blandville, and these gave Edington, the
Wickfill'e man, a majority of ninety-one
over Jno. l)avia,the Blandville man.
Yesterday evening, about seven o'clock,
two black women had a lively fight at the
comer of Twelfth street and Washington
avenue. Officer Tyler came upon them and
undertook to arrest them, when they turned
upon him and one of them cut him several
times across the back of the hand with a
piece of glass, causing the blood to flow
freely from three or four deep
gashes. He finally succeeded to bringing
them to tho jail gate to whore ho was fol
lowed by a throng of boj'R, men and wo
men, both black and white. Arrived at
the gate tho brother of one of the women
caused more trouble by interfering in
behalf of his sister, and the officer
was compelled to take him
also and locked him up. The trio will be
tried to day.
A large, Btrong mule, belonging to Mr.
Julius Serbian, was bitten in one uf his
hind legs by a snake some time ago, which
caused the leg to swell to nearly
trebble its natural size. Yet it
did not seem to seriously
inconvenience him and Mr. Serbian, while
trying various remedies, worked him some
times. Hut the remedies did not seem to
have any effort on the swelling and the leg
continued to increase in size and ugliness.
A tew days ago, after having flnishod a
day's work with apparent case, tho mule
laid down in tho back yard and, after toss
ing about 111 great agony from Saturday
noon until Sunday afternoon, gave up the
ghost. This is tho second mulo that Mr.
Serbian has lost this summer. The first one
was overcomo with heut.
If any one wauts to see the tendency of
the agu to gambpng, let them take a ram
ble in any of tho businoss centers of tho
larger cities, and see the money daily put
up on tho result ol anything in doupt, from
a game of base ball to the price of a hushol
of wheat at tho closo of, the daily market.
It may pe horrifying to think of, but thero
are thousands of dollars dependant upon
tho death of tho president and tho czar of
thoRussiiis. Taking chances to make or
break is sadly on tho increase, and thous
ands upon thousands of tho young men of
the country can be seen daily drlfling into
tho maelstrom which is making beggars and
millionaires in proportion of one of the
latter to ton thousand of the former.
-From a copy of the "New Albany
(Ind.) Daily Ledger," of Tuesday March
19th, 1801, handed us by Col. Roarden, rcf
ertmce is made in a number of places,
to
Cairo and other matters that are quite inter
csting to read at this late day. In one
place it devotes nearly a quarter of a col
umnto a description of tho wharl-boatsnud
a table showing tho freight tonage irom this
point of the Illinois Central railroad for the
year 1800 and for the months of January
and February in 1801. Of tho wharf-boat
it says: "In regard to the new wharf-boat
of Graham, Halliday & Co., tha Cairo City
Gazette says : The new wharf-boat of Messrs
Graham, Halliday & Co., will be delayc
in its arrival here a few days longer than
was anticipated. We learn from them that it
will be ready about the middle of next
week." Here follow tho dimensions o
the wliBrf-boat. According to tho account
concerning the business of the Illinois Cen
tral railroad, the receipts in freights ot the
road at this point during the year 18G0,
was 200, 153,90!) lbs; the money receipts
for the same was 130,780.18
But that the business of
tho company increased rapidly
is evident from the fact that the tonuage of
freight received during the months Jan
uary anil February of 1861
was 125,812,252, and the receipts for tho
same was $313,339.72. But this rate of
increase did not continue very long and
during last year, twenty years later, the
gross tonage received by the company at
this point was 833,612,500 pounds upon
which the charges were $940,000. These
figures show a great reduction in freights.
The paper also contains a speech m ado by
Senator Brcckcnridge, in discussing a rcso
lution offered in the senato by Mr. Doug
lass. He takes occasion in this speech to
criticise the first inaugural address ofTresi
dent Lincoln, holding that if tho president
carried out the views he therein expressed,
a collision between the northern and south
ern states would be inevitable. His prcdic
tion proved true, as everyone knows.

A RAILROAD ACCIDENT.
IllKD'S I'OtNT THE SCENE.
Oil Saturday evening an accident occur
red on tho Iron Mountain railroad at Bird's
oint, which resulted in seriously injuring
two men, one of them, perhaps, fatally. A
switch engine and train men were employed
in making up a train and were in the act
ot making a "running switch," when the
engine and a number of cars were untracked
by a cow that attempted to cross before the
train. The cars were thrown into a heap
in such a manner as to blockade the track,
and tho work of replacing them was hast-
ly begun. In doing so a heavy cable and
an engine wero used, and while tugging at
the wreck some of the cars unexpectedly
rolled over burying beneath them. Mr.

LETTER FROM AN OLD CAIROITE.
Cleves, O., July 28th, 1881.
Dear Old Bulletin I am sorry to say
that I am still a sojourner in Cleves, but let
me assure you that I intend to shake the
dust of the place from off my brogans
just as soon as I can make arrangements
to leave. I really expected and intended to
bo in Cairo about the first of last Annl
But as Burns has it, "that best laid schemes
o, mice and men gang aft agley." I am
realizing the truth of this Aphorism in the
fact that contrary to wishes and expectation
I am still an unwilling citizen of this
hamlet, but I have been so egregiously
disappointed and deceived in the matter of
closing up my affairs, and collecting debts,
due me that I could not get away. I am
very certain that it would not do for me to
leave until I had closed up my business in
person as far as possible. If I left my ac
counts in the hands of others to bo'paid at
some futuro time, just as soon as my absence
became conspicuous, these claims would
be worth at least ten per cent less than
nothing.
However, I am encouraged in the belief
that, at some time in the near future, I
will be ready and more than willing to bid
Cleves and its hypocritical Psalm-singiug
citizens good-bye.
My life here is and has been for the last
nine years what might bo called semi-rural.
In that time, I have learned to hate the
unsophistication, ignorance and narrow
ness of a little country town. I like better
the artificiality and broad liberality of a
city.
Thiapliico is about 100 years old; is
situated on tho I. C. & L. R. R.,
ono milo from the Oho river, and
fiftccen miles from Cincinnati in Hamilton.
county, Ohio; contains 900 inhabitants,
threo churches, five Btorcs, two school
houses,' one for whito and tho other for col
ored children, nine saloons, or doggeries,
all well patronized. Tho citizens are stupid,
penurious, and as mean as thoir friend, the
dovil, wants them to be. A largo number
of them raise "yaller corn" and hogs, many
of them work a little through the summer,
and whittle store boxes and talk about
Iiobscs and dog fights during tho winter.
D n such surroundings, and such a modo
of life.
We havo no manufacturing establish
ments, mills, or indeod, anything of the
kind to indttce mechanics or anybody else
to locato hero,' Men who do not farm a
Ittlo, cko out an uncertain living by work-
ng on tbo railroad, that runs through tho
village. And wo havo In all probability
tho worst schools iu tho state. Tho princi
pal is tho quintessence of stupidity, and a
pedantic lgnoramous, but a very Baplent
fellow, in his own conceit. He was em
ployed simply on account of his politics,
and I regret to have to say that tho chap
pretends to be a democrat, when in fact he
has all the attributes and requirements of a
stalwart republican; the town seems to be
finished, as it has not increased in wealth,
population or intelligence, for the last S3
years.
Now I opine you would like to know,
why in the devil I come here, and under
took to do business? I'll tell you. Unfor
tunately I was born near this village, at a
very early period of my life, and of course
I very naturally imbibed a predelection
for the locality. I lived, or rather stayed
here until I was twenty-five years of age
and have a good many relations in tho
vicinity.
I had been away from' the place thirty
five years, knew just about nothing in re
gard to the town or the pcoplo, was told by
pretended friends that it was a bully place
lor merchandising, and so I came here in
1873 and here I am yet, but hope and trust
that ore long I may be able to leave Cleves
and its profanum vulgus citizens.
