A correspondent of tho St. Louis

duto of February 2d, says of tho St.
On my departure from St. Lojis, I
promised you a line, but my tlmo has
been so fully occupied since, thnt I have
irilly found no time to fulfill my pledges.

and treat their numerous guests to all tho
comforts of u home. Tho city is ftendily
improving, nnd notwithstanding the many
drawbneks It has experienced by firu nnd
otherwise, it Is detlned to become a pliica
of considerable importance.
McBan:, of tho Mitropolis Timet,iho
Inst week spent several days in Cairo, hits
tho following good word for tho New Del
monico,ovcr which Jack Winter presides :
"Those of our citizens who wish to behos
pitably entertained when in Cairo, nnd bo j
mado to icel 'at home, snouiu mawe tne.

will find tho familiar and genial fitce of
our 'old timo chum,' James btalcnp, ever

Next Monday evening, 12th Inst.,
tho Hibernian tiro company's annuul ball
will be held nt Schools hall. Thero is no
company In tho city that deserves more
ut the hands of property holders than the
Hibernian fire company doei. On al' occa
sions and wherever their services nro re.
quired, they nro on hand and always do good
service. Two or thieo enrs ago, tho com
pany, for tho want of enterprising nnd en
ergetic men to lead it, was nil but broken
up. Hut nt tho proper time, such men as
McIIalo, Susnnkn, Burke, Rynn nnd
others took hold of tho then almost
llfvlcss concern, nnd from that timo lor-
ward tho company has had no superior.
Rut tho Hibernians; like other companies
of the city, sometimes need the assistance
cf the public. They just now re
quire means wherewith to pay for tho
property purchased nnd to make such
repairs upon the engine house, apn
ruttis, etc., as aro necessary, and it ii with
thu view of raising money to supply thesu
wants tli.it the ball to come oil' on Monday
night is to bo given. In view of theso
fucis, it is to be hoped that our citizens
will give tho company on this occasion the
substantial ussistulico required to enable
them to carry out their plans. Tho prico
of a ticket has been fixed ut ono dollar a
price within the reach of almost every
one. Every business man and property
owner should buy one, whether ho intends
