Do our prominent citizens thoso who
are expected to tako the load In all mat
ters of public moment realize tho im
portance of the proposition to bo decided
by tho votera of Cairo, ono week from to
day? So tlioy understand that if tho
proposition Is, decided in tho negative.
Cairo loses tho terminus of tho Cairo nnd
Fulton railroad V If theao things aro un
derstood by them, what excuno hnvo
they for their lukowarinnesH and Indif
ference? A question of ouch vital cou
sequenco was never beforo left to tho de
termination of our citizens, yet one may
minglo in every street-corner crowd, paH
hither aud thither' throughout tho ontlro
limit of tho city, hut ho will fall to And
any of our leading citizens actively oper
ating in Its favor. They are housed, ono
and all of them, persuaded that tho 'Bul
letin' will do iia duty, and render effort
on their part unuccetsary.
Now, in all seriousness, wo tell these
citizens that unless thuy at once enter
upon an earnest and actlvo advocacy of
the proposition submitted, aud persist
therein until the day of the election, the
city of Cairo will suffer the disaster of a
defeat. The 'Bulletin hat done it duty

but those friends must be Increased be

The editor of tho Da Quoin 'Tribune
be'S leave to assure tho editor of the
Columbus (Miss; 'Sentinel' that .Mr.
Morgan can repeat his Montgomery
speech In any part of Illinois without
molestation; and that the perigrlnatlng
radical member, of tho Illinois press
aesoclution did not threaten nnd de
nounce him therefor. Now It so happens
that the editor of the '.Sentinel' Is a little
better posted in that connection than
the editor f the Du Quoin 'Tribune.'
Quite a number of the radical editor
who heard tht "peech in question, and
.acked either tile uouragu or bruins to re
ply to it then aud there, returned home
aud denounced Mr. Morgan In tho most
unmeasured terms, one of them (the
edltorof the Buukcrlllll 'Uazctte') going
so far as to assure him that lie dare not,
for his life, repeat the speech In certain
sections of Illinois. These criticisms, de
nunciations and threats fell under the eye
of the editor of the '.Sentinel,' and a part
oftiiemwere reproduced In his paper.
When, therefore, thoodltor of tho 'Sen
tinel' charges intolerance upon the radi
cal editors of Illinois ho knot's exactly
what he Is talking about.
The success of repeated 'experiments

try Is chargeable solely to the want of
skilled labor. Tho Chinese have, here
tofore, manifested no disposition to Intro

EVENING. JULY 12,1869.
I will tell you of an adventure I had
one fall, when I and Beth Heard were
hunting upon tho south branch of tho
Yellowstone away up.where thepralrlcs
aro so broad and long that tlioy scorn to
,bo without end; 'twas up thero boys, that
icamo trie nearest ot losing my ftcalp that
I over did in my life, and this was tho
way that it came about:
You see that I and Beth did a little bit
of business besides trapping, up in them
parts that time. Before we started.
deth, says ho "Abel, wo can got skins
better than we catch'em, and n tarnal
slght.eaBler, by buying thtrn of tho red
skins; so lot us buy a lot of notions and
go out on tho prairio and set up n shop."
'Agreeii.f'ays j. oriy jet. us go
beyond most people thattrade, with the
Well, wo bought a little of everything
to tickle the Injuns with, nnd off wo
started and setup a shop on the prairie.
This was 'long in November, and for a
time we did a Bmrwhing business among
the heathens. Wo could buy a skin
worth flvo dollars for a string of beads
andlackkife, and others in proportion.
"By and by the rod-skins oegan to get
ugly. Wo could see it hr their sullen
looks: and thought they traded nearly
ns much as ever, we began to think they
meant mischief, b'o Hetli and talked
the matter over and concluded, unless
we wanted to loose our furs and horses,
to say nothing of our scalps, wo had bet
ter leave some time between two days.
I always had great affection for my hair,
aud never could think of letting a red
heathen have it to hang in Ills belt; and
ticth, he, also, kinder thought that way.
SVe packed up our duds and prepared to
bo otrjust as soon as we were sure that
all the prowling red sklUH wero nbed, for
we wau't more than half a mile from ono
of their towns, aud didn't care about
their knowingjust when wo went.
"We wanted tostartassoon wocould. for
the moon row about midnight, and then
all would be as light us day, for thero
waru't a cloud to be seen any where be
tween prairie aud prairie, aud the stars
were Iikeso many deers' eyes in the rorest.
"I guess It must have been about 'Jev
eu when wo mounted our horses and
moved slowly away rrom our camping
ground. Our furs were packed in a huge
bundle aud fastened on behind us, and
tjeth, as he moved away, looked like a
picture of au Arab on a oamel crossing
the desert.
I don't think we ho hnd gone a mile
when wo heard tho awfulest yell behind
us that ever fell on mortal cars; it seem
ed almost loud enough to take the sky
right up from the ground where it seem
to be setttu' like a great bowl.
We knew In a minute what the yell
meant, ana it told us mat w o weiu nut n
moment too soon in our departure. The
red-skins had determined upon having
our traps and hair, and had pitched up
on to-night for the deed.
Giving our hordes a smart blow with
our slicks, we bounded off over tho prai
rie, ns fat an they could carry us. Wo
knew that every foot we gained now In
our lllght wo should need, for the Injuns
would soon be upon our trail with fleet
horses, aud they would have no difficul
ty in pursuing us ns soon as the moon
came up; and oven now tho sky was
growing brighter toward the east-ward.
"Thinks I what would I give IT I had
the power of old Father Joshua, so that
I could mako the moon stand still for au
hour or two. But I hadu't, aud afore
long it was lighting everything up as
bright as day.
Another veil further oil, but full as
the first, wo stopped our horses, and
dismounting, threw ourselves flat on our
faces, aud placed our ears to tho ground.
A moment, and wo were satisfied that
tho pursuit had begun; wo could plainly
here their horses' hoofs striking tho
ground at a quick rate. Hastily spring
ing to ttie uncus or our Horsed, we uounu-
ed away.
"Ail mat nignt tno cunso was Kept up,
and when morning camo and the sun
hud riiun. wo could heo our pursuers, not
above a nilio away apparently two
score In number, upon our trail. Would
tuey never turn rjacK ; was tno question
I asked fc'eth: but ho shook bin head, and
urged on his tlrcd.butist.
"On wo went, tho dry grass crackling
beooath our feet, our horses breathing
hard, and their streugth well nigh gone.
"They are training upon us," i ex
claimed, lookimr round au hour Idler
"Yes." said Seth. "we must throy
away our furs; thero is nohclp'ror it, and
perhaps mat win sattsiy mem.
"It' was-A hard ease, but' tho straps'
wero cut, and away roJIrd the reward or
all our time and toll upon thopnilrlo aud
we Kept on.-
AthttlQ later wo looked. lach..Xhi.y.j
camo up to tho packs, but Mill came on.
Two remained behind tosecuro tho plun-
dor. but the others came on. thirsting tor 1
our blood. On, on ours was a race for
Hfe. .
Our horses were nearly worn out, but
still they went, on.; bow much longer,
they w'ould'hojd W ,M..KyW ot, but
they must fall; soon; hut should those
on which the Indians were mounted
prove tho htrougqt, oiU" fato was decided.
"Suddenly the sun grew dark, and tho
emell of lire lllled tlieair. Wo had not
noticed this before, but as worodo round
tho edge or a rorest that lined a small
hollow, we paused In terror.
Before us was a Hue of tire, extending
as far as the eye could reach, and com
ing toward us at a considerable speed,
ror tho wind was in our fu'coH. For a mo
ment we wero dumb with horror at our
situation, ir wo turned back, death would
besuroattho hands of the redskins; If
wo kept on, wo must perish In the llames.
All hope of escape seemed gone.
"A shout of triumph came from the
redskins; they thought our capture
"Tho fire Is more merciful than the
red dovlls," said Seth, as ho dismounted.
I did tho same. With a strip torn from
our blaukets we blindfolded the horses,
nnd then mounting and wrapping tho
remainder or our blankets closely around
us, urged them toward the crackling
flames, , ...
"Tllo noor Crontllraa unnrlu! .-. rno
but obeyed the reins and voices. For a
mlnuto tho heat was terrible, nnd tho
smoko suffocating, and tho next I could
breathe. We dismounted, or rather tum
bled on to tho hot -ground, and toro tho
bandage from tho eyes of our poor
steeds. Thelr'H had beon the worst por
tion; you could not touch them without
the llosh clinging to your Augers.
"Abovo Mir roaring and crackling of
the llames, wo could hear tho triumph
ant shouts of tho hoathens; tlioy imag
ined that wo had perished In tho flames.
Tho remainder or our Journey was made
on foot; our horses we pat out of misery
on tho spot.
A copy ot tho Nlles (Michigan) 'Repub
lican,' of July 1st, which fell Into our
hands, contain the following card from
Mr. Peak, who was recently "In Cairo,
with tho Swiss Bell lllngers:
In completing his thirtieth annual tour
the undersigned, in behalf of the Peak and
Berger Families, BellBiugers, begs lea vo
to return his inanKS to the mimic coner
ally, and particular' to the pooplo aud
presH or tho Southern States, ror the very
Kind anu nattering reception anu liberal
patronage which thoy have everywhere
accorded to him during the past season.
As thero is much misapprehension exist
ing in the minds of Northern people re
garding the truo stato or affairs ut tho
South, and much doubt as to the recept
ion NHhern people would meet with
should they visit that section, I can hon
estly state, as tho result or my observa
tions during our extended tour of over six
months through the States of Tennessee,
Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama Miss
issippi, Louisiana aud Texes, that the
stories of outrages so frequently seen In
Northern papers aro generally emana
tions from the brains of evil-minded per
sons, written for effect aud having no
foundation in fact. The Southern people,
generally, are as well disposed towards,
will treat as kindly, and welcomous cor
dially, any and all well disposed persons
who may come among them either as per
manent settlers or us transient visitors,
as would the peoplo of any other section
of our common country. Thoy have
suffered a great deal during tho tew past
years and haro by no means fully recov
ered from tho effect of tho war, but they
are hopeful for the future, and to all well
meunhiL' peoplo they will extend the
right hand or fellowship, Irrespective of
the jretion of country from which said
people may come.
