Helena, Are., April 2(1. To-day, at
12 o'clock, the Mississippi river at thin
point reached the liigh-water mark of
18?.2, having risen in the twenty-four
hours ending at that time fifteen
inches. It has steadily continued to
rise since at the rate of one-half inch
per hour, now being four inches above
'the highest water ever known. The fact
of the river setting to high water at
the time it did demonstrated better
than anything could have done
the wonderful calculations made
by CoL Mile?, he having predicted
. aeven days ago that the stage of the
river would be to-day at noon to the
high-water mark, and that it would
continue to rise six feet higher if the
levees did not give way. All of the
government engineers and quite a
number of the local press, who saw
fit to characterize Col. Miles as
a crcnk, and ernzy an a loon on ac
count of these preclict'ons, will now
be forced to take a back seat and ad
mit that he knows more about the
Mississippi river than any living man.
He has saved the planters of the Mis
Mil. MONK OK DOLLAE"
by forewarning them, and many se
rious lossen could have been averted
had his advice been taken. The tow
boat Lioness passed up this evening
and stopped here and reported that a
largo br ak had occurred at ArkHnfas
City, Ark , and that the Anchor Line
boat Belle Memphis had been drawn
into tho crevasse. The officials of 'the
boat stated that they had made an -effort
to pall her out of the cre
vasse but hod failed, and came
off and ltrft her, but that the steamers
Billy Ezell and Natchez had gone to
her restue. From Fred Nicholson, a
white man, and three colored men
who came to Helena this evening
about 6 o'clock, it was learned that
the levee had broken on the Missis
sippi side, four miles below Friars
Foinl, at the Stoviill place. There
is ca large force of men at
work' on the levee ut Delta, Miiw.,
but a gentleman from that place this
evening stated thot if tho river con
tinued to rise at the rate that it is now,
for twdve hours, it would be impos
sible for the levee to stand, and it
( would have to go. About fifty men
-are at work near Trotter's Landing.
About five miles above Ileleva, en
the Mississippi side,
lASoriea rmv nwujpwii rue ,
: as the full current of the great rtwdi
of water out of the fct. Francis sets
. against it, but tlioe at work there are
more sanguine and think they can
:vhold it. Tho V Anguilo at Mnriann. is
rising at tho rat of an inch an hour.
The levees protectini: Helena are all
iin good condition and no danger is
apprehended from them. It is more
than probf.ble, however, that the
-town will be Hooded with back-water,
.as the levee between here and Castile
frovaHse, in several places, some of
-tbi.m near tho town, to-day at 12
o'clock did not luck but five inches of
.being . over, as tno river has r sen
four inches -winco that time, it is al
most a dead certuinty that they will
gut:th! other inch to-day, unless the
river-should oomo to.a stand, which is
impe&siblo from the amount of water

About 3 o'clock yesterday fternoon
the reports of two shots tired in rapid
succession rang out, starring those in
tho vicinity of the i-'heby street cot
ton shed jus', soufi of licule street.
The sound came from tlie littl- room
over the oilice. A negro .'uborer wi o
was at wor in the yard ran up tho
nar ow 6teps and found Mr. Sid A.
Whitford, the M anager tf thoshul,
in his death st ugglo. It Tas evident
that he had been lyiiifr upon the
lounge when ho fired tlie til's t shot,
but it did hot deprive Ijm of con
sciousness, o- tho ability to pull the
trigger a second time. The bullet
pierced his heart and h fell to tho
floor, the hammer of tho pistol strik
ing with sufficient force to make a
deep dent in the boards. The alarm
was given .and a physcian was at
once simirnonoed but the unfortunate
man had pla ed himself beyond
tho piwer of mediral aid. The
muzzle of the pistol hid been so
closely pressed against his breast that
the powder burned a hole in his shirt.
An inquest was held, with the usual
result. Nothing bevond tlie fact that
the cose was one of sui- ide was shown,
none of the reasons which led to the
commission of so desnente a deed
be ng drawn out. Thu wife and
mother of the. suicide were found be
side tho corpse w lieu tho reporter en
tered, ine mother was evidently
heartstricken by the blow. Mrs. Whit
for i moaned and wrung her hands by
turns. Neither were in a condition to
talk about tin gad affair, and were
left alono with the corv dead. All
efforts ahout the shed to obt in infor
mation were nearly fruitless, but the
crime was iiterwaru luimeuiatelv

A short time since he had a quarrel

finishing touch, and crushed -by a
complication of miseries, for which ho
himself was largely responsible, ho

years of age, tho son of an old, well

distil'eries in Hubbard's Cvr,

days tgx Webb Pardon,
member ef the f irer, who is s citizen
of Manchester, was aroused from bis

night by a mo j of masked man burst

were about twelve in number, and,
witbont warning, tbey began tj
fire a deadly volley into the bed
