Cairo counts two citizens more since

Hon. Joseph P. Itobarta, Chester Peni
tentiary Commissioner, passod through tho
city yesterday on his way to Springfield,
whero a meeting of penitentiary commis
sioners is to bo held for the purposo of con
sidering important matters pertaining to
the penitentiaries. One Important object
of the meeting will be to devise ways and
means for making the institutions, particu
larly that located at Chester, self-sustaining.
A professional man of muscle gives
freo exhibitions of his strength every oven

catches two single-trees to whicti horses are
hitched, one in each hand, and allows the
horses to pull in opposite directions and
holds them together. Harry Walker has
engaged him and his partner (who is near
ly his equal in strength) for this week; and
they give nightly exhibitions of their skill
as boxers and wrestlers.
Miss Laura Lee, who is to receive a
benefit at tho Theatre Comique to-night,
supports an aged, widowed mother; her
father, who was captain of a Mississippi
boat, was killed during tho war. In view
of this fact those who admire Miss Lee for
her fine musical talent should be the more
anxious to contribute toward making her
benefit night a grand success financially, as
she and her associates will strive to make

Officers Hogan and Boughnor had a
lively tussle with the fireman of the steamer
Etheridge night before last. The fireman
raised a disturbance ou Sixth street and
threatened to use a pair of brass knuckles
in a test of the skulls of some of the inhab
itants there; and when tbe officers came
upon him, swore that he would not and I
could not be arrested. He was a powerful
fellow and fought all the way to jail. But
he was taken there allee samee and was
fined $25 and costs by Justice Robinson
There is to be a meeting of representa
tives of tho local boards of trade of cities
interested in river improvement, at St.
Louis to day and to-morrow, for the purpose
of considering sorao matters of importance
relating to the improvement of the Mississ
ippi. The B ard of Trade of this city has
appointed a committee of five to represent
it in all matters pertaining to river improve
ment, and the committee has designated a
sub committee to attend the meeting of St.
Louis. The sub committee, headed by
Mayor Halliday-and Capt.Thos. W. Shields,
loft yesterday on its important mission.
County Commissioner Mulcahey was
in tho city yesterday from Commercial
Point, to attend a meeting of the county
board. Ho reports the water rapidly going
into its banks again and leaving the bot
toms wet, slimy and barren of vegetation.
The cutting of the Illinois shore along there
still continues, but slower than before.
Altogether, a patch of ground about three
quarters of a mile wide and one and a half
miles long was washed into the river and
carried away, carrying with it several houses
and a considerable quantity of crops and
farm improvements. Mr. M. thinks that
about fifteoii of the heavy farmers in the
county sustained large losses by the flood,
in the way of destroyed crops, and about
twice that number of smaller tanners lost
nearly all they had to depend upon for a
living until tho next crop should be ready
for tho market.
The excitement of the colored people
iu Pulaski county, on account of the "late
unpleasantness," seems to have nearly all
died, much to the disappointment of a few
Republican politicians and one or two
office-seekers who are recent converts to
Republicanism, who found in the colored
mind aroused to anger a rich field for set
ting out political plum trees which would
yield some fine official plums at the next
election. Several of these politicians and
office-seekers wero open in their professions
of sympathy with colored voters in their
determination to commit violcuce of some
kind, and concurred with them in thoii
loud complaints against the officers in
chargo of tho murderer, Howard. But the
colored people had something else to do
than to stand around streot corners all day,
listening to tho idlo, meaningless palaver of
designing men and they went horns to at
tend to business, leaving to the properly
constituted authorities the duty to bring the
lawless gang of mobbers to justice. In
Cairo, in the uppei portion known as the
"Coirell," there was some manifestation of
"bad blood" among the negroes on account
of this affair. They showed their extreme
displeasure in various ways against all
whites alike. Tbey were more overbearing
as a rulo and often insulting, evidoutly
suspecting every white man thoy met to bo
an I'X-uiobberand in duty bound to prove
his innocense or stand convicted and be in
danger of summary punishment. But this
feeling is gradually dying out now and bo
foro long "everything will be just as it used
Two negroes named Cal Roper and
Jordon wore caught by Constable Haz
Martin yesterday evening, in the act of
"hoo- looing" a verdant country negro from
Pulaski county out of $10. They had
"surrounded" the strangej and wore telling
bim glowing tales about a certain spot in
the south where fried 'possum aii4 sweet
titters floated about in tho air like gnats
looking for open mouths tocrawl into. One
of them uttered some kind of gibberish
which he said was the language spoken by
the people in this land that flowed with
'possums, etc. Tho stranger "took it all
in" and handed over two $5 bills to pay for
being directed to this paradise" and to bo
taught tho strange language, which the
chatterer had promised to do by merely
passing his hands over the gulluble pupil's
face. Officer Martin came upon them
just as the money changed hands and
knowing the two tricksters, suspected
crookedness, made them return the money
to its owner and told the victim to go on
down town about his business.
Tho Argun, or any one, could find am
ple evidence that the negro, Howard, was
a dangerous character and an undesirable
citizen on general principles. The cir
cumstance related by Tub Bulletin,
which occurred at Grand Chain, his home,
is first in point of importance. Howard
had taken possession of a saloon and held
the proprietor and the officers and people
at bny with a cocked revolver which he
flourished in the air about him that whs
heavy with his curses and threats. A
telegraph man offered to arrest the despera
do if the officers would give him authority
to do so. Tho authority was given and
Howard was downed and turned over
to the authorities, while he vowed that he
would at some future time in some way get
even with the man who had "downed'' him.
Howard accused Kane of being the man
who had overcome hira at Grand Chain,and
he persisted in accusing Kane of being the
man, in spite of the latter's equally em
phatic denials. There is evidence even that
he went so far as to say that he would kill
Kane, on the very day that ho committed
tho crime. But this is not all. When Pu
laski county's office-seeking politicians
were sending up a hypocritical wail for ra
tions from tho government during tho
drouth, and a few honest white men pro
tested against the outrage, Howard was
among the leaders of a mob ot negroes who
went over the county threatening violence
against tho men who set up tho protest, and
at Villa Ridgo threatened to take posses
sion of the goods in the stores there, unless
they were furnished ration, at the same
time refusing an offer of steady work at $1
per day, made by the owner of a saw mill
only a few miles away. And again : less
than a year ago, Howard made his murk in
this city and introduced himself to the po
lice officers, by attempting to repeat his
Grand Chain mineuver in the store then of
Mr. Ernest Pettit, we believe, up town; but
the Cairo officers were not Grain Chain of
ficers, as he learned pretty quick to his
sorrow. His weapon was taken away from
him and he was made to pay for his fun.
Wo are of opinion that upon the "Golden
Stair" they sing about, Howard stands sev
eral good long flights below tho man who
was the unwarned and inoffensive victim
of his blood-thirsty nature,aud that he will
have to go through an eternity of proba
tion before ho will stand ou tbe same Btep
with him. However, this is only our be
lief; wo don't profess to know much about
the arrangements and the regulations gov
erning the future state. If Howard had
been duly found guilty by a jury of his
peers and hung by Sheriff Crane with all
the ceremony usual to such occasions, be
would, of course, have dropped through tho
trap door directly into everylusting bliss,
while his. victim might bo suffering the
torments of the unrepentant. But even as
It is, we will admit, for the suke of peace,
that Howard is now after all an angel of

WHAT A LEAGUER SAID.
While sitting no the postoflke steps the
other evening, I overheard the followin
jug handle conversation: "Well, D. our
fuu is over for a tim", and must say I've
had a surfeit of it. I was becoming tired
of these Leugue meetings, and if it wero
not for their Discontinuance during tho
summer months, I would have resigned
long ago. Btill, my boy, wu'vo had plenty
of fuu, and not a cent to pay. Rut it does
cost a fellow something alter all; onu has
to becureful as to his toilet, or he'll goon
lose caste. Did you see those white coats
tlut M. and I wore at the last meeting?
Weren't they daisies? The laundrying of
tiat coat cost inu one dollar. Fearful, isn't
it? but I'arker would not come down a
cent. G. isagullus fello wheu it comes to
entertaining, and, I s ty, give him plenty of
tether, and he'll bankrupt himself yet; he'll
"go long" on hospitality, and, in his effer
vescence, forget "t; cover." These are com
uiercial terms, B., and should be used only
when spcuking of gruin transactions. By
the way, did you ever speculate? talje a
"deal" I mean? buy a "flyer" and put up a
live-cent margin? Speculating is a dread
ful husiuess, as I know to my sorrow. Let
me toll you. On the tenth of last month I
bought five thousand Oct. wheat in St.
Louis, at 1.10; that, you know, was the day
before our League meeting. The nt-ft day
about four o'clock p. in., I received this
telegram: "Market flat; Oct. wheat 1.16;
remit two bundled and fifty additional
margins." Great Jeiiisalaml but how that
message weakened mo. I bucamu as limp
as a rag. All' my vitality oozed out. I
was to rehearse in "Engaged" that evening,
and there was a collapse of memory. I
wrote a note to the secretary that a thora
cic affection prevented my further attend
ance at rehearsals, ami I would have to
withdraw froin the play. Tho truth is J
was ou a still hunt for margins. I went to
bed that uight feverish and restless. I
wooed sleep, lilt could not win her. I
prayed for a blight upon tho wheat crop,
particularly tho October portion of it; fig.
tired out tho probability of an European
war on the morrow; conjured up a gigau?
tie "bull" syndicate that would drive prices
toadUzy altitude. With such visions I loll
luto a troubled sleep. Awoke- next morn
ing at seven o'clock, and my mind immedi
ately turned to whott, tho October option.
I haunted the telegraph office until ten
o'clock, when my agouy exploded. I was
