From Sheriff Irvin, who returned home
by tbe 2:3') train tbit morning, wo learn
the following of hit trip from Cairo to
On Wednesday afternoon .Sberill' Irvin
look tbe prisoner, Alex.Wyatt,and taking
tbe 3 o'lock train, started lor Cnrbondalr.
When tho train arrived at Villa Ridge,
Ryan, tbu huband of the murdorod wo
man, who had jutt returned from the fu
neral, waa met by the sher
iff. Ryan went into the car. and leeine
vVyatt, remarked that be wai tbe mur
derer of bis (Ilyan'tj wife, and at thu
same time kiakod bitn in tbe face, caus
ing blood to Sow from his nose. The sher
iff interfered and Ryan was removed
to anothor car, and the train proceeded on
its way. liefore reaching Jonosboro, how
ever, Ryan re-entered tho car, carrying in
hi-hand a large knife, and attempted to
kill tho prisoner, but was prevented from
doing so by Sburilf Irvin.
The conduct of Ryan and other parties
on tbe train convinced ShorilT Irvin that
it would be as good as the prioner't life
to attempt to take him through Caroon
dale, and bo concludod to leave the train
at Janotboro and place tbe pris
oner in Jail tnero until some
thing definite could be ascertained
with regard to the true condition of af
fairs at Carbondale. Accordingly, whou
tbe train reached Anna, Wyatt was hur
into a back and taken to Jonesboro,
wkero ho was placed in Jail.
When at Jot-esboro .Sberill' Irvin laid
his plans, concluding to take the tint up
freight, aud have tb train ttop
tbort di'tanrn south of
Carbondalo, where be would
leave tho cars and go aorost tbe country,
and thus avoid going to Carbondale at all.
According to arrangement tho train wai
ttopped Jutt below the college, (If the
reader knowa where that it) or about
half a milo below tbe sta
tion, and fiboriQ Irvin and his prisoner,
accompanied by Marshal McCullough of
Carbondalo got on". McCullough sug
gested that tbey could go into town
without fear of molestation from thu
mob,but Sheriff Irvin detsfmlnod to run no
risks ; and then McCullough .started to
town for a buggy in wh!?h to convoy tbe
nrisoucr to Murphytboro. In the mean
limn tho train wont on up
to tho station, and somo one,
probably one ui tin brakemon,
told somo one that tbe iherl.f had got off
below town. Tho train had not boon al
tho station but a viry tow minutes when
tho sheriff could hear tbo yelling ef won,
and the cracking of pistols, and
In a few minutes tbe hurried
tread of men, indioatibg that
the mob wero coming. Tho Sheriff was
cot long in making up hit mind that it
was timo to leave hit hiding place, and
though McCullough had not yet arrived
with tho buggy, ho told the nogro to
jump a fence near by, and they would
take to tho woods.
IIowovor,wben they first got ofl'tbo train
they went to a home near by and McCul
lough rapped at the door, and wai askod
the oft repeated quettlon, "Who'i there?"
He antworod, and asked where the men
were and was told in roply that tbey were
"all down town." Wyatt, hearing this re
ply, taid, "yei duyi all down
dare waitln' to hang me:"
After getllnc; over tbo fence, tlioy ra.i
through two Holds, and tlnally camo up
closo to the now normal school building,
whore tho Sheriff halted to liston and na
certain, if possiblo, what tbe mob worn do
Ing. Everything appearing qutot, the
Sberifl'took bold of the prisoner's hand and
started In the dlroction of Murphytboro,
avoiding ai much ai possible bouses and
pullio roads. Kvory now and then they
could hear men hollowing ; and Just when
they struck tho Murpboyaboro and
Carbondale road, a hack camo along,
an but a very ihoit distance from
them two men came out of the woodi and
(inquired of the driver of the hack if
"tboy had yet caught tbe nlccer." Tho
ihorlff and hlt'prlsoner took to tha woods
and traveled on, several times when near
the read seeing and bearing rntu pasting
back and forth.
When they got to Dig Muddy bridge the
iherltT found that It wai guarded, but
after waiting a while the guardi left and
tbey crossed over. On tbe way up town
tbcnigbl; 11 WM ftr on o'clock, Sheriff
Irvin met a well-known doctor who wai
known to be ilroQgly In favor of lynch
ing the prWoner, but hi did not recog
nize them. When they arrived at

Thero is a stronger feeling In the mar
ket for everything excoot Hour aud hay,
and as a rule all branches woroactivo and

nominal prices. A few small orders cumo
iti and aro tilled at about tho same figures
that have ruled for the last two or tbrco
week, but stocks are large and are ttill
increasing, rocuipli being in excess of tho
Thero it a decided improvomont in thu
oatt and corn markot owing to tbe reports
from New Orleans being mo:e favorabio
and pointing to an active demand at

early In tho day.
Corn meal cloted firm and active at 3 '2S
In round lots, and 3 35 in broken lot
Tho market wa; entirely baro to-day,and
we would recommend mill men to ship
without delay, as it is wanted.
Tho weatber to-day was cloudy, and
mild for tho season, and nights aro sharp
and frosjy. Thoro is no change in river
matter, tho Ohio it up and the channnl
is deep to New Orleans. Freight aro
plonty, and are forwarded without delay
at tho old ratoi,

HAY No cholco in tho market; strict
ly cholco is In good domand, at good
price; in fact Cairo it a good market for
top gradui noarly tho wfiolo year round,
but very little of tbat kind ii shipped
us. The markot It uoarly all the time
overstocked with low glades that aro
hard to work oil' at any price. Kaloi 160

found ready tale. Roooipt bavo been
light and the supply it exbaustvd. This
fact and the knowledge that the New Or

of a still stronger fooling causod sellers to
ask an advonco and the market closed
