Sheilff Irvln returned home from

morning. Mr. Irvln Informs us that
DeGrath, tho man he had under ar

from the time he left New York with him
until he got beyond Altooua, Pennsyl
vania, where DeGiath Jumped from the
cars, which were running at the rate ot
thirty-five miles an hour. It Is the opin
ion of the shcrifl that he was Insane, and
that he was entirely Ignorant of the dan
ger he was Incurring In attempting his
escape. DeGrath asked Sherlli Irvln to
go out 011 the platform of tho car with
him, as he wished to light a cigar aud
smoke, which Mr. I. did, but uo sooner
had they stepped on the platform than
DeGrath sprang oil the train. Shcrifl
Irvln endeavored to stop the train, but it
being the fan through mall, the con
ductor would not hear to stopping, and
he was compelled to be content and go
on until they had reached PltUburg. It
is not known whether DeGrath wa In
jured or not, but the sheriff still enter
tains hopes of bringing him to Justice,
aud we have not the slightest doubt but
that he will,
The Sun ays : "The Bi'LLF.tin still
cries out, wait lor Colonel Taylor, belore
nn thing is done towards protecting the
city." and then tbe Sun proceeds to say,
thai the water lias been cutting at the
strip between the Mississippi and Ohio
rivers, and Colou.-l Taylor has done noth
ing. Well, what has the cutting of the
strip a mile above tiie levees to do with
tbe suggestion that a public meeting
shall be called to make arrangements to
build a new levee? Cairo cannot stop the
cutting of the strip; mid when the Sun
talks about that It is oil Its eggs. Tbe
suggestion was : Let us meet and go to
building a new levee at our own ex-H-nse.
We said : Walt, Col. Taylor has
an Interest in the matter. He is now con,
sultinir his people. He may make ar.
raugements to protect the levee. Let us
hear what he has to say. The Sun re
plies: "Why wait? The river has bei n
cutting the strip above the city for years,
and Taylor has done nothing. We are
opposed to further delay.'1 Well,
why don't you move? Who is holding

The destruction of our protective em
bankment on the Ml-bUslpnl side of the
el'y, they put down as a calamity that is
to befall us ! It Is useless to rea-ou with
these people. The town, Iu their opin
ion, is doomed to inevitable destruction,
und they marvel greatly that everybody
isnotiua state of alarm about it. And
upon wnat sort ot a foundation do they
build their predictions? At a point some
three miles distant from the city, the cur
rent of tbe Mississippi sets iu
strongly against the Illinois shore,
nud probably one hundred and
fifty feet of the nairow gauge railroad
track has tumbled into the river. The
levees about the city remain compactand
untouched, nnd are In no Immediate dan
ger whatever. A half score of experi
ments here, furnish us ample assurance
that if at any time, the current of the
river should Imperil our levees, a steam
boat load of rock will turn It aside aud
permanently remove the danger. The
prediction that (he Mississippi will cut

Editor Bulletin Dear .Wr ; In yes

comes forward in support of tho
levee scheme and asks "Citizen" to lo
cate the channel of the river. "Citizen"
acknowledges that he Is not sufllclctitly
acquainted with the. river to locate the
channel nt Cairo, Cape Girardeau or
Devil's Island, but would respectfully
ask "A Riyer Man" how he will account
for the heavy cuttings that
have been umdo during the
past three years ln the neck
of land that Joins us to tho rest of
the State, If the channel ot tho river has
not changed? If, three years ago, "A
River Man" had measured Iho distanco
between tho Illinois Central railroad
track nnd the river bank, nnd measure It
to-day ho will find the distance consider
ably shorter; whole fields have gone
Into the river In that time. How will he
account for this If tho channel has not
"Citizen" has always supposed that
the greatest force of the current was In
the channel ol the river, and If Iho chan
nel has not changed why docs Iho river
contlnuo to cut? why should It not cut
as well on tho Missouri shore opposite?
Can't sec what connection the cnannel at
Cape Girardeau and elsewhere has to do
with the channel at Cairo, or does "A
River Man" mean to say that be
cause Ihe channel has not changed In
twenty years nt that place, It necessarily
follows that It has not changed nt Cairo ?

The article which appeared iu yes
terday's Sun, signed "A River Man," is
not of as much value as the editor of that
paper would have it apuear. In the first
place where docs he gutls authority for
"1 know that the government can", do
anything, or be compelled to do anything
for the relief of Cairo, unless It has as
was sursresteu in tne uulletin. some
time since constructed works that have
changed the channel nud turned the cur
rent towards our shore."
If tho abovo Is true, then what was it
that iudiiced General Simpson, who Is
the representative ot the government In
the department of the Mississippi, to send
Mitfor Charles J. Allen to examine und
report to hlin the condition of matters nt
the point of danger ? When Col. Taylor

diiriiir tho interview, and yet II. o
(jeuenil looked very favorably upon the
Colonel's plea, and dispatched the Muor
its above stated. One of two things Is
plain : Either the plea of tho Devil's
Island works was not necessary or the
General already knew that they were do
ing the mischief. Now there is but one
argument that can bu advanced against
tiie theory that our trouble has been
caused by the above works. That argu
ment Is the existence ot the chain which
extends for six miles up the river, begin
nlng at Commerce. Missouri. But that
there Is not flexibility enough
to tho channel ln the chain to allow a
change of bearings in the current suf
ficient to produce the results we now seo
abovo this city, Is a matter not yet de
cided by pilots or engineers ; aud while
we do not hold that our theory is abso
lutely correct, w e shall hold lo It until wo
are shown that tho current, while
passing through the chain, has uo chance
to "wabble." Tho distance from Cairo
to Devil's Island cuts no figure In the
case, fciigiueers win say mat n tuu
channel of a river Is completely changed
ut a given point, the bearings of the cur
rent will ull bu altered, more or less, trow
that point to its mouth. But "River
Man" says: "Why, my dear sir, the
channel at Cape Girardeau Bend
below Devil's Uland is now' tho
samo it was twetny years ago." t'er
taluly, and tweuty years ago iho
channel came dowu tho Missouri shore
ai uevn isiauu ju.j . .k mm , u..
what was the condition at Cairo? Every-
body will remember that betweeu i.
teen aud twenty years ago tho cry went (
up, Just as it does now, that Cairo was
about to become au island, and alter that
scare was over tho channel tor year
ran unlnlormly. down tho Illinois i
shore at Devil's Island ami
a broad' tract Jof laud wa made aud j
Eliza tow-head formed where tho dangvr,
was most imminent to Cairo belore.
After that, lor a number of years tbo
channel vibrated back aud forth at Devil's
Island aud became so bad that tho gov
ernment undertook to improve it by
building this dam from tho head of tho
Island across the channel to an Island
nbovc that had becotno part of the shore,
throwing tho water permanently
down tho Missouri tide. Now the engi
neers decided to take the Missouri shore
for the channel, because for some year or
more tho water showed tho greatest In
clination to run that way, and referring
to the same period "River Man" snys "tho
channel where the water is cutting back
Of this CltV. Is lint Whern IC tins
been for three years," which Is
partly true nnd partly false, as every
body knows. It Is true Unit lor three
years the channel has been changing to
ward Its present position, but It did .not,
until this season, reach It.

This Is a new style of picture now be
ing produced by Win. Winter, tho artist,
ot this city. These pictures are creating
much Interest In all the principal Eastern
and Western cities, being altogether new.
They are unlike photographs, being
raised and beautifully enameled over the
entire surface, soft In tono, but distinct in
the lights aud shades. No one who sees
them falls to admire them, or to give the
artist an order. We have been shown a
number of pictures of well-known ladles
and gentlemen of tho city, and hare bo
hesitation In pronouncing then perfectly
splendid. Wc would therefore advise all
who take interest in such matters or do
sire pictures, to call upon Mr. Winter at
bis trallerr and examine bis work in this
new branch of the shadow-capturiag art.
We have at the Bulletin oSco lor sale
at a discount, tcrip of tho Madlton House,
Cincinnati, (Main, between Front and

tions ut the rate of $2 25 per day,. Scrip
