Ono of tho firms that went down in
tho Chicago fire was Culver, Pago &
lloyne, who havolbcen furnishing to nil
Egypt blanks nnd blank books. A strong
erip had this firm on tho affections of
many county officers, who had taught
themselves to believe that if C, 1. it H.
should be snuffed out nil tho courts in tho
state would be compelled to adjourn sine
die nnd Justice put aside her useless scales.
And now that great exigency has come.
What nro wo to do about It 7 To those
officers who cannot, In any possible way,
recover from tho Culver, 1'ngo & Hoyno
diease, wo would recommend speedy ul-
cldo by throat-cutting or drowning, but to
tho philosophical fellows who bellovo
there aro in tho sea as good fish ns over

printing office. There U not n blank or
blank book which haa hitherto been fur
nished by Culver, 1'ngo & Hoyno to coun
ty officials thnt we cannot furnish nt
cheaper prices nnd printed or bound in
better style. In proof of till ossertion we
refer to Mr. .laccb Lynch, county clerk,
Mr. A. II. lrvin, sheriff, and Judge llros,
county judge, of Alexander rounty. Mr.
John (J. Ilnrmun, circuit clerk, will, wo
believe, also bear evidence that our blanks
and blank books are unexceptionable ns to
workmanship and nil that could be de
sired ns to prico.

In 1838, about tlio lCth of October,
dipt. John Hinej, Hat. Armstrong, Tom
Montgomery, nnd tho writer, (iho Ilrst
threo old bargemen beforo any steam
boats wcro on the river,) took n yawl and
went to tho Hock, (since known ns tho
Grand Tower Jtock,) to scltlo a bet ns to
whether it was n rock or snay, thero being
considerable dispute about it, amony river
Tho rock was found, nnd all of us got out
on it and satisfied ourselves that it was a
At that time it was 32 J inches under
water ut its highest point.
This morning I took n skiff nnd went
out to it and found that tho high-
est point of tho rock was onlv
two inches under water, making "n
difference of twenty-ono inches less water
this, 12th of October, 1871, than thero wa
on tho 10th of Octobor. 1838.
I also went over to tho rock known ns
tho Macon rock in 1838 it wos in tho dry
sandbar under Ilinl's Point nnd was not
known at tint time and carefully meas
uring found that it was thirty-six feet
north ond south, and twentv-eight feet
cast nnd west. It is a conglomerate or
cement rock, and tho steamboats have
broken off" tho high peak that came out in
1852. The part that now shows nover was
out of water before, but i now sixteen
inches nbovo water. I sounded carcfullv
all around it, nnd found nt a di-tnnce of
eighteen feet from tho rock from twelve to
eighteen feet of water. The deepest is on
the east or lower side. After measuring
around it 1 sounded to tho Illinois shore
nnd found n regular chain of stone extend
ing all the way to the sand
bar, nnd in a direct line with tho l.ock in
tho Mississippi thnt first appeared nbovo
wnter in 18C3. This chain of rocks is 100
yards East from where Uird's house stood,
or back that iuhcIi further from tho river,
and it (the house) stood at least 350 yards
from the bank in 1850. Now the rocks are
closototho Hur on the Illinois side of tho
river nnd bids fair to bo covered in n few
years. This ltock is now about !l feel out
of water.

What WeSaw, Heard and Thought About Ycster
tcrday. The city is very orderly. Thero nrc
now but few visitors from -Memphis and
Piiducnb, nnd consequently very little
work for tho police force.
Now thnt tho city authorities have
concluded to enforco thi hog ordinance
had they not better "go for ' tho infernal
bolls of perambulating cattlo7 An ordi
nance, the number whereof 1ms slipped out
of our memory, distinctly prohibits, the
clattering of cow bells within the limits of
of tho corporation, and yet, they do clat
ter, mnking noises thnt no living person
can tolerate, and which every body of
good taste must per force curse with hear
ty good will in a religious manner.
Chief of Police Myers, gives notico
through ouradvertising columns this morn
ing that tlio much-abused and entirely neg
lected hog ordinance that ordinance which
deprives the innocent porkers of the city
of tho right to roam in gardens nnd enter
open front doors will bo rigorously en
forced on and after tho 18th inst. Wo
knew this would como to this. AVu knew
Mr. .Miller, the radical candidato for county
treasurer, would at last mtiko this attack
upon tho rights of our honest hogs. Ho
ought to bo ashamed of himself. AVhero

railroad until thu liberty of tho hogs of
Cairo had been proclaimed. Let then)
