A little colored girl was passing by one
of the slaughter houses on the Missis
sippi levee, yesterday morning, when
Jack Hamilton, a colored man, said to
her: "Come here." "I wont," she re
plied, when Jach ordered his dog to bite
her. The girl ran, nud tho dog coming
up with a little colored lad, named Dan.
lluekner, about ten years old, began to
eat him. Before he had finished his
meal, but not before lie had lacerated the
limbs anil body ot the boy in u shocking
manner, the bruto was driven oft. Ham
ilton was arrested and taken before Esi.
Itlrd, and lined $3 and costs. This Hue
was Imposed for permitting hl.s dog to
run without a muzzle, but other "law

committed suicide. One letter,
was nddrcssed to "Whoever
Shall Find This." in which
he gave his name, nud said he had two
brothers, otic living hi Cincinnati and
tho other near that city. He requested
that a letter enclosed, and directed to hU
brother, at Cincinnati, should not be in
terfercd with but be forwarded to its
address. In a pass book was a lot of tin
Important papers und some railroad

"Citliea" After fe
Editor Bulikiin Dtnr Sir, I notice
In the Sui of the 3rd, nn article head
ed "The Itnllroad Ordlniince,"and would
like to inquire on what grounds the Sun
basen Its opinion, that this ordinance
ought not to be adopted." I think the
railroads have been allowed great privi
leges In being permitted to inn their
tracks through the city ; and have the
citizens no rights which those corpora
tions should respect hi return for the
privilege? Is the safety or cumfbit o! the
citizens who havo occasion to use the
thoroughfares through which these roads
run, on horse or on foot, of no moment?
We have, I think, allowed these railroads
the right ot way through
our streets on certain conditions
conditions looking to the safety and com
fort of the citizens. Have these condi
tions been fulfilled on tho part of the
railroads? I believe not. Look at the
condition of tho etrects Commercial
uvcnuo and Levee to-day. The rails nn
both are several Inches alxive the grade
of the streets, and It Is Impossible for
teams to cro? except nt certain points.
.Should this be so? It eenis to
mc that It Is not only proK-r and right,
that the city, having the kwit, should
compel these railroads to tlx their tracks
In such a manner that the-e streets will
Imi as paswiblo as any other In the city
l. the .S'kii subsidized In the interests of
the railroads, that it forgets the Interests
of tho city and opposes an ordinance that
should'havo been passed by the council
and cnl'iieed long ago?
