The people of Cairo, It Is probable, will
be treated to a fine game of base ball
within a few weeks. The Centralta ball
tosscrs, hearing of the prowess claimed
by the Idlewild base ball club, of Fadu-
cah, which vanquished tho Cairo base
ballistsou two diflerent occasions, and
wishing to take the conceit out of the
Paducahltes, have challenged them, we
are told, to meet them lu a contest. The
Ccntralia men arc on the bet, and offer to
wager $500 against a like amount witli
the Idlewllds, that they will come out
first best In the match, and propose that
the game be played in this city. Whether
the Paducali men have sand enough in
their craws to toe the scratch for this
amount ot wealth, we cannot say, as no
answer, we arc informed, has up to this
lime been received by the Ccntralia club,
Rellatloua.

What llealtli OaTaeer rowsa Thlnka
llcaltu uniccr urown, who tor some
days past has been deterred to a great cx
tent from accomplishing his purposes, on
account or the "rain-water," aUU kecDS
on his beat, and docs what he can for the
welfare of the city and its Inhabitants.
In a conversation with this gentleman yes
terday morning, we .were informed by
him that it is his belief that the vegeta
bles, and especially the corn, brought to
Cairo arc very unhealthy articles otlood.
His reasons for this assertion arc, that
the "rain-water," of which there lias
been a great quantity this season, espoc
lally lu the lowlands, where corn thrives
best, irot Into the stalks, was Instilled
into the cars, and consequsntly renders
them not only unhealthy, but a danger
ous luxury. He advises the people of
Cairo to use as little of tho vegetable as
possible.
Complaints.
Complaints are received every day by
Chief of Police Williams, in regard to the
running at large upon the streets of the
city of horses, mules, cattle, &c. He yes
terday received a letter from ono of our
most prominent citizens, relating a tale
ol the destruction of his beautiful shrub
ery by loose stock, and asking whether
something could not be done to put a
ston to the allllctlon. The chief is In a
quandary about the matter, and is puz
zltng his brain to arrive at some pun by
which ho can remedy the evil complained
of without coming down "too hard
upon tho owners cl such stock. The
only plan he can set forth that will prove
of any good to both factions, as in many
Instances tho "rain water" has inun
dated the barns and yards of tho stock
owners, Is for the said owners to herd
their stock, aud place some one in iMiarge
of it a cheap boy, would do and thus
avoid the necessity of any action being
taken ou the part of the city authorities.
Police Court.
Police court business raised its droop
ing head just a little yesterday. There
were three cases before Judge Bros and
one before Judge Bird, as follows :
BEFORE JUDGE BllOSS.
Mary Valentine and Lizzie Howard,
two erring colored damsels, were arrest

quietude of the city, and marched up to
tho tribunal of justice, where His Honor
placed upon the head of Mary a tine of
five dollars and costs, and placed her un

who will look after her welfare for eight
days to come.
Jackson Honilltou and Jane Gcxould
ot the colored populatlou, were taken
Into custody for disturbing the peuce by
disorderly conduct They were found
guilty and find five dollars and costs.
and sent to jail, where Hamilton will so
journ for three days, while Jane, just be
cause she didn't happen to be a man, will
be compelled to linger double that time,
Patrick Lane was then brought for
ward. Patrick was up for disturbing the
peace by violent, offensive and disorder
ly conduct, aud using offensive language
He was find five dollars and costs, and
ordered tojall to labor on the streets for
four days.
BEFORE JUDGE 1)!R1.
A colored gentleman, named Archie

Poor Work thf (ana of the Break.
A reporter of the llt i.i.f.riN called on
lohn P. Hcly, Civil Engineer oflhls city,
yesterday, seeking Information on the
Shawncetown levee, and the occasion of
thc!brcak thereof.
Reporter. I understand you were the
engineer In charge of the construction of
the Shawncetown levees?
Mr. H. I made the surveys, plans, &c,
of the levees, and superintended tho con
struction for the Jclty of the north and
lront levees, but had nothing to do Jwltli
the construction of the south levee,
which was the one that gave way.
Reporter. Who constructed the south
levee V
Mr. II. It was built by the railroad
companies.
Reporter. V as it subject us much to
the currents and floods as the north and
front levees constructed by you?
Mr. II. Ittvas not. The north levee
being on the upper end of the town, was
directly In the course of the Ohio and
W abash floods, and the south levee had
no current airalust It whatever notldng
but back water.
Reporter. How many levees arc thcru
at Shawnctown?
Mr. U. There you do not appear to
know tlic plan. I will explain. The le
vees are nearly in the shape of an oblong,
three sides being formed by the levees
and the fourth by the hills back of the
towu.
Reporter. What is the distance, and
the heights of the levee from the front
levees to the hills?
Mr. II. The distance is about ono and
one half miles. The north levee will
average sixteen feet high. I don't know
as to the south levee, but the natural sur
face is rather higher than the north side.
Reporter. From your account, the
levee gave way where there was least ex
posure to the floods and current?
Mr. II. Yes, sir; that is my conclu
sion. Reporter. Mr.Hely, have you not been
annoyed by the report that It was your
levee that proved detective?
Mr. H. 1 have been much worried,
from Uie fact that It Is well knowti that I
was nearly two years engaged as civil
engineer in construction of the Sliawnee-
town levees, and It is supposed that 1
built all of them; hence I am criticised
and questioned by our citizens, and of
course my professional acquaintances all
through the West and South will believe
It is my work that has gone.
Reporter. Wliat was the cause of the
break, then ?
itr. II. Light and defective work.
Ana we left Helv iretllnsr ready to
whip a person who jMt then approached

The Fntortte Iler.
Charles Schoenmeyer, ot the Germa-
nia saloon, has just received a fresh sup
ply of the celebrated Pilsner beer, and
will have the same on tip this morning,
This beer is growing so popular with
our beer drinkers that Mr. S has found It
almost impossible to keep enough on
hand to supply his patrons, but he now
has ovcry arrangement perfected where
by he will always have on hand a sufil
clent quantity to meet all demands. Now,
If you have not tried Pilsener do at a:

P. S. Schoenmeyer will spread a big

Cairo and 11 Inches at St. Louis. It has
risen 1 Inch nt Hclsna and remains sta
