bout three years ago a man named
Charles Degratli came to this city and
made application In the circuit court for
a dlvorco from his wife, setting forth
what seemed to be plausible reasons,
swearing that ho was a resident of this
State and county, and that be had lived
in tho State and county for sixteen years.
He was granted the divorce, left the city
and was not again heard of, we aro told,
until a lew days ago, when Mrs. Dcgrath,
who was not aware of the existence of a
divorce, made her appearance in this city
with an attorney, and demanded that the
divorce be set aside. She says that De
gratli is, nad was at the time tho divorce
was granted, a resident of New York,
and that he returned as soon as ho had
procured tho dlvorco and married another
woman. The divorce was. it is said, ob
tained by parties in New York, who ad
vertised to (secure divorces without pub
licity. The Ktiit will como off at the pres

Mayor Winter, left her father's house, on

friend. Miss Wilson, a tow steps away,

the door behind her, aael had gained the
landing of the stairs laMag to the second
floor, when sme heard a slight noise
above her, aadamon looking up, saw the
form of a burly iwgro standing right In
front of her.
She gave a piercing shriek, and ran
down stairs and out on the porch, where
a crowd of not less than one hundred
people were attracted by her terrified
cries. It was with difficulty that those
who gathered about her could sufficiently
quiet, her fears so as to learu what had
happened. She, however, told her story,
and pointed to the negro, who by this
time had como down stairs and got Into

We were informed by Mayor Winter
yesterday morning, that the negro had,
upon hearing his daughter scream, turn'

house, ran up the second flight of stairs
to the third story, where he ran out of a
door leading upon the roof. Here he
secreted himself behind a chimney. Mrs.
Winter beard him as he rushed through
the lull, and upon going to the door, saw
the burglar (who gave his name as Geo.
Jackson) go out upon the roof, whither
slie followed him. The negro followed
her down stairs and out on the porch Into

he went down stairs, but which, we sup

thought best to let remaiu where It was.

he had not been inside ot the house ; that
he had gone to the door, knocked, and

Z.OITOK Jil'lletix t I notice In your
issue of this morning, an article in regard
to myself, wherein you liave failed to
spell my name right, and lu which you
uuthoughtedly, I believe, arc doing me
an Injustice by thu very broad assertion
that I am indicted for the stealing of a
watch and pistol .rom one DcBaun, and
as 1 have been a constant reader of your
paper previous to this trouble of mine.
hope you will do me the justice to correct
by publishing the following version of
the affair, simply because I do not, nor do
J believe that you do, want the minds ol
the public prematnrely prejudiced against
roe or any one else. I am in prison it Is
true, under an indictment lound br the
say, the stealing of the above named arti
cles, but on the charge of being found
witn tuls property in my possession, said
property having been bought aud paid
for by myself, and which I think I will
be able to clearly prove at my coming
trial. If not, I have as a matter ot course
to stand the consequences, let them be
what they may, and whatever the result,
I am still constrained to say that there
must be. and is, a wide difference between
belag indicted for the stealing ol a certain
piece or article of property and the being
found with said property in possession.
Please do me the favor to publish this,
Inasmuch as any one, let him be ever so
honorable or high-toned, is liable at any
time to meet with the same misfortune.
In conclusion, I hope the public will be
kind enough to suspend judgment, until,
at least there is a thorough investigation
had of the charge against me.

The six-oared shell, which was built
for the hiRjafft of Cairo society. wt
launched at good daylight yestenUy mor
ning, and at 0 o'clock struck out on her
trial trip mp the Ohio. The crew who
manned her were Jno. Holmes, stroke;
Irvin Dugao, captain; Janes Plilllls,
Will and Frank Rob bins and Mr. AU-
thorpc. They handled their patent
'spoon bill" oars like veterans mid shot
Iho "Peerless" through the water nt rail
road speed. They did not go qullo as far
asPadttcah, and returned In forty min
utes, in, good time to do Justice to their
breakfast. The Interesting part of the
performance came when the crew at
tempted to mako a landing. It was easy
euough to get Into the boat but getting
out proved a different matter. Sho Is so
narrow and round on the bottom that
the least uncertain move would cause
her to capsize a fact which the crew
seemed to realize vividly. After somo
delay as to who should make the first
attempt, the Captalu's voice rang out,
"What are you watting for,
men? Jim, jump out and hold tier."
"I'm in no hurry ; jump out, yourself, if
you think it's so easy to dot" "Frank,
you go." "No, let Will go ffrst." By
and by, they settled the matter somehow
and got ashore well pleased with their
new boat. About live o'clock this even
ing, dressed In their new uniforms of
blue, and armed (perhaps) with life pre
servers, they will man their boat and tak
a long row In the harbor lor the lietiPllt
of Cairo society, which, they hope, will
be largely represented upon tin lew
front to witness the display. It will he
well worth seeing.
