A Matter or CoBtcquoaee to Cairo.
Mound City has donntctl tlio Bum of
twelve hundred dollars in city scrip,
which was Immediately converted Into
cash, to provide a banquet for the Illi
nois Press Association that will meet In
this city next Wednesday. Tho citizens
thero arc all actively interested in tho
matter, properly appreciating tho good
results that will follow tho kind, liberal
and hospitable entertainment of their
In Cairo thero seems to bo a want of
Interest In the matter that Is to bo do
plorod. It is of tho highest conscrjueuco
that our guests should be entertained in
the best manner. It will cost something
to do this two fold moro thnn has been
appropriated by the council; but overy
dollar that is expended will be wisely,
judiciously and, wo think, economically
Tho visit of these gentlemen to our
"city will furnish us an opportunity that
wo may never ngalu have, to place
Cairo right before the public a chance
to wipe out the damning prejudice and
slanders now current and operating
against tho city; and a chance also to
make known, in every portion of the
Northwest, what we have done, are
doing and expect to do, to build up hero
tho city that is ono day to take rank as
the largest ami most thrifty iu the
Mississippi valley. There Is no cit
izen, therefore, we euro not how
humble lie may be, who Is not
Interested In having these opportunities
improved. Much, very much depends
upon tho manner In which we improve
thorn. The town should take nn active
concern. The committees aro doing all
that is required of them; but this is not
enough. There should bo a general
waklng-up union g the citizens. Money
and assistance should bo tendered; and,
when our guests arrive, no man should
feel himself free from an obligation to
do something towards entertaining them.
Such a reception and entertainment as
Cairo can give, would send the members
of tho association away from our city
deilghted. It Is a fact, qulto axiomatic,
that "men's feelings are reached through
their stomach"." We should act upon
that Idea, at all events; and, doing our
duty In that regard, and showing our
guests, lu other ways, that we are sensi
ble of the honorof their visit; the return
our city will receive will compensato us
to our full satisfaction
Our citizens, then, should aid, in every
way possible, tho committees; respond
liberally to their calls for money, and be
stir themselves generally, as tho char
acter of tho occasion may require.
"SIC TRANSIT GLORIA MUNDI."
The Now York 'World says that Pres.
Grant being assured that ho was given
the Presidential nomination by the rad
ical party, to prevent the democracy
from securlug him aisumcd tho high
position to which he was called, feeling
that ho was, through this means, not a
party president, but by virtue of the com
promise which the party had made to
secure him, perfectly independent of
party shackles and party tied. And thus
It was that he attempted to lord it over
the very party which had elected him,
and arrayed lilniselt iu upon hostility
with the leading members of hU party,
wlion It was dourly I1I3 policy to make
thorn all hU friend to secure harmony
and cordial co-operation. lie still fur
ther weakened his Influence and control
in tho party by appointing in his Cabi
net men Who had no party iullueucuaud
who could rally no support to assist him
in a conthct. Thus provided he went
into theicngagumeut over tho repeal of
tho tonuro-of-otllco act, and was luglori
ously defeated. Notwithstanding tills ho
has horns of re-election, and as ho can
not look to the democratic party for sup
port, he must noccssarlly look to the
party which did elect him; and since ho
lias broil defeated iu his efforts to be the
party leader, by his improvident acts, ho
has secured to himself no support. Ills
only hope thon of controlling party favor
is through truculent obedience to party
behests, and ready acqule.seuco in their
every demand; and thus It Is tho 'World'
argues, Grant will prove a mere puppet
in tho hands of the radical party, ready
and willing to execute party commands
without question or opinion.
THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE.
Tho Illinois Loglsraturo is again at
work. Determine to limit tho session
to tho shortest posslblo poriod, a resolu
tion has been 'adopted, to tho ollbct that
no new business excopt such as shall be
occasioned by executive communications
and supplemental bills, shall bo con
sidered. Tho passago of tho Railroad bill nnri
ami tho Aluxander county relief bill over
tho Governor's veto, furnishes evidonco
that that body Is not entirely forgotful
of tho poople.
Wo aro under obligations to Senator
Munn for promptly advising us of tho
passago of these bills.
ILLINOIS STATE PRESS ASSOCIA
TION. A number of gentlemen responded to
a call for a meeting of the committees, In
the council chamber yesterday afternoon
and, calling Mr. W. W. Thornton to the
chair, proceeded to business.
Dispatches wore read from W. J. Flem
ing, general superintendent of tho Mo
bllo nnd Ohio Railroad, and Mr. C. E.
Bushing, of Mobile.
Mr. Fleming advised the committee
that arrangements would bo made to
carry tho Association through on tho
regular train; and suggested that, inas
much as thero wero no eating houses

Col. Ileardeu moved that the commit
tee of arrangements bo directed to pro
vide a banquet in connection with tho
reception, for tho Illinois Press Associa
tion in this city, on Wednesday evening,
the 21st Inst. Tho motion was carried
The mayor was requested to telegraph
to the president of theassoclation to as
certain the number of members that have
signified their purpose to visit this city.
A committee was appointed to solicit
donations to aid iu mcetingjthe expenses
to be incurred, consisting of II. P. Good

gin and John V. Trover.
Notice was given to the committee of
arrangements to meet at tho First Na
tional Dank at half past 10 o'clock this

, AIM OF THE IIONDIIOLDERRS.
The "Imperialist," a paper Just started
In Now York, and devoted to the estab
lishment of an Jemplro upon the wreck
being made by the radical party of this
government, betrays a wonderful solici
tude for tho protection of tho "national
creditors." This sollcltudo vory plainly
indicates the interest from which It Is to
receive its support, and of which, If It
live, It Is to bt the organ. Imperialism
is tho Inevitable goal of the bond-holding
and ultra radical policy, and the Impet'
Mitt can scarcely be said to have entered
alone upon the field, when we hear
Wendell Phillips, In'the 'Anti-Slavery
Standard' of last week, expressing him
self In such terms as thone: "Ob ! for a
Pater the Gnat, atraaith and luox
orablo aa fete. He recoaatructed Russia,
and made out of the barbarism a civllzed
state. Tha like problem walta with us

JOHNSON AND DROWNLOW.
Tho following passage from ex-Prcsl-dent
Johnson's recent speech contains
his "credentials" signed by Gov. Drown-
His loyalty, ho said, had been a&salicd;
and by whom? Ho did not need to
prove ft. In tho time that tried men's
souls, ami when others wcakoucd nnd
needed support, he had given 1L A
Knoxvillo audieuce might learn from
this paper whoso arm upheld the faint
i lug loyalty of some of them. He read as
follows: THcceIved from Nashville.
March 24, 16G2, of Andrew Johnson, mil
itary governor of Tennessee, $1,003, to
aid in the establishment of a Union press
at Knoxvllle, and to defray my expenses
while passing from under secession op
pression to the city of Nashville.
("Signed) W. G. DROWNLOW."
And, ho added, such as ho now claim
to be moro loyal than I, and that I am a
traitorl .Lot who will daro to mako tho

All the doors and windows of the house

Nothing Is known of tho matter except
that the neighbors heard a disturbance
at 3 o'clock Monday morning and tho
renort of a nlstol. when a man run out of

hotiso was classed as disorderly, no at
tention was paid to tho proceedings.

away all truces of blood, and. thero aro no
Indications of tho manner In which tho
deed was performed.

ordinary tact, shrowdness, sagacity and
wlbdom to discover a modo of avoiding

All of President Grant's official acts

not maintained hlmsolf in a single posi

British India no fowor than 10,000 human
beings perish annually from suako-bites

nnd other wild animals.

Advices from Fort Ellis, Montana ter

ten Indians stole some cattlo and horses
from the rauuho on Dry Creek. A party
of llfteen or twenty citizens, and four
mounted soldiers from Fort Ellis, follow

tho Indians, of whom nine wero killed,
ono escaping on a stolen horso. Private
Corbly was killed, and two soldiers and
ono citizen wero wounded. It is rumored
that the Crow Indians havo burned their

A lady guest at a Paducalj hotel was
terribly frightouod,- the other evening,
by a negro dropping through tho celling

An editor of a paper informed his
readers that tho ladles always pull oil'

that he had no business to know it, even
if suoh were the fact, aud pronouueed
