'The St. Louis licpttbliean of Monday
furuMics us the following Item In regard
to a colored Cairo citizen : 'Itichard
nouston, colored, was arrested yesterday
on Myrtle street by Sergeant O'Sulllvnti,
on u requisition from Illinois, cliargln;
him with the crime of Incest, his own
daughter being the alleged victim. Hous
ton Is n well-looking man, about forty
live yars ol age. Ho recognizes In this
prosecution the hand of hU wife. Ho
says that ho lived in Cairo two years ago,
but left tliero on July 11, 1874.
He had for n long peilod of years
been subjected to the direst torments a
vlniffo could lulllct. so he and his wile
separated, and he took his four children,
Ihu oldest of whom was a girl seventeen
years of age, and set up housekeeping In
a locality remote from the old woman.
Tiling went smoothly Corn year or more,
so smoothly In fact, that his wife could
not endure It, so she had hlmnrrr.Med on
a chnrge ot grand larceny, ami
then on n charge (he game a
that now standing ngalut him.
Both cases fell through, but he felt so hu
miliated that he brought his oldest daugh
ter to St. Louis, and they set up house
keeping, intending to send for the little
ones as soon as they got well llxed. He
I a carpenter, but was very unsuccessful
pi securing work at his trade, nnd ha
been working a n laborer. He hates to
go back to Cairo thus not knowing what
kind of a jramu the old woman may have
set up on him. A deputy sheriff start
soutli with him to-day.

Mr. K. V. Wilson, who visited Cairo
nnd lectured under the auspices of the

weeks ago, speaks tliu of his visit,
through the columns of his paper, the

airo, uic cjpiuu oi r.gypi in Illinois,
the shire town of Alexander county, Is
literally the "Laud's Knd" of Illinois,
situated on a tongue of laud lying be
tween tlio Mississippi and Ohio rivers,
200 miles below St. Louis, 500 miles be
low Cincinnati. When standing on the
extreme point ol this laud you look to
the south "way down info Dixie.'' Turn
to the left, looking cast, and there lies
Kentucky, with Its story of the "dark
and bloody ground ; '' turn to the right,
looking west, and there lies Missouri.
Between these States ami where we stand
llo,vs "la belle Ohio" on tliu left, on the
right the "Father ot Waters," the Missis
sippi river. Turn around, look north
ward, nnd lieforo you spreads out thu
fourth State in the Union, Illinois, fifty
eight years ago a territory, then the
home ol savages and the haunt of wild
bea'ts, now a garden, oyer
which and through which floats
and rolls the commerce of
many State?. Turning to the river on
your right and on your left, you behold
a new river every minute, for the swift
llowhig waters tarry not, but tlow on
and new waters take their place. Yes
terday we stood on the levee, and saw
the waters of llfteen States and Tenito
ric rolling by us nu cmplru of tlietn
nelves, mingling their tear In the wed
ding of these rivers. Over our head the
telegraph, ou which our soul can send Its
thoughts to the uttermost parts of the
world only a few minutes of precious
time between Cairo of the Nile and Cairo
of the Mississippi and Ohio. Ou our
right and left the Iron rail ou which rolls
the iron horse, all ready for the race,
and wilh tireless speed whirls you
swiftly on from land's end to laud's end.
By us a palace lloats, yea, many of them,
freighted deep with the products of civil
ization. No longer the war whoop of
the red man or the howl of the wolf or
the screech of the panther Is heard ; no
moru the birchen canoe with Its dusky
pilot W seen. All have given place to
the pale face, a race of strangers.
Yesterday, Sept. 110, we sat between
two men, Col. Webb and Dr. Artcr. It
was at the tea table In the pleasant home
ot the doctor. Turning to the Colonel,
we asked, ''When did you come Into this
"In ISIS, sir; the year Illinois became
The year wc were born. And how old
are you, Colonel?"
'And you, doctor
'And all these years you have liy
"And arc there any living now, Col
onel, that were here when you cameV"
"No, not one ; till are gone and I alone
am left. Last year my wife died, and
soon I, too, will go."
"Great changes and mighty revolutions
have taken place in your day, Colonel ?"
Iteader, wu felt like a child as we sat
between these two old men, cither old
enough to be our father, and yet we area
grandfather. And then as we listened to
the pleasant voice ot Col. Webb, when
speaking of Ids interviews with
Jackson, VanBiireii, Benton, Clay,
Douglas, Lincoln, llarii-oii, Taylor, and
others; when ho spoko ol the Black
Hawk and the Mexican war, In both of
which ho took a part, wu lelt indeed a
child by tlio sldo of tills grand old soul,
ono of the llrst settlers of Illinois. And
as we gazed Into his eyes, and looked up
to his massive brow and snow-while
lock', we felt that the past nnd the pres
ent were shaking hands, saying lo each
other, Good evening, for to-tnorow wo
will greet each oilier ou the shining
shores of the river ol Life, beyond the
Land's End of Time, and with thu open
country ot Kternity before us.
In the evening we spoke in Liberal
Hall. On our right and left sat thcu
grand old men. We lelt like the green
young pine between two royal oaks, on
whose seared brows the lrost of a thou
sand winters had fallen, and standing
thus we felt the Inspiration of the past
blending with the present, urging us on
to the future. Wu cannot do better than
to close this already too long article with
thu compliments ot thu Cairo Daily Jiul
let in ol Oct. 1 :
"Mr. K. V. Wilson lectured lat night,
ami delivered one of the most eloquent
(llscour?es wo liavu heard in Cairo."
Tlio public Is hereby notllled that the
city Is Infested with a largo number of
thieves uuil roughs. Cltl.ens tiro warned
to use more than uual care in securing

been added to tlio force. Thu class al

Immediately. Should any of them be
