A goodly force or men, and the tugs
Cache and Montauk were at work repair
ing the wash in the levee all day Sunday.
A number ot people visited tin; icvec,
and after taking a view of it, all came to
the same conclusion, that there had ljecn
a"blgblow" over a small matter. It's
true, that had the wash been allowed to
go on without steps being taken to put
an end to it trouble might have ensued ;
ouias it wa ine scare was unnecessary
A breastwork has been built at the wash
or gunny sacks filled with sand, n lot o
trees cut for the purpose, and two old
barges which breaks entirely the beat
ing or the water against the bank, and all
l.s well again. Among the many visitors
to the levee on Sunday was Captain W.
P. Halliday, who, we believe, suggested
the plan taken to slop (he wash. He not
only told the workmen iiow to carry on
the work, but pulled oil his coat, rolled
up his sleeves and did as good service as
the best laborer In the party, nnd he is
satisfied that all has been done that Is re
quired.

Mr. Aubrey and her daughter are known

there arc none, we dare say. who will not
regret lo lose them lrom among us. Mis
Maggie lias been a teacher In our public
schools for more than eight years, and
during that tlmhas won the love and es
teem of all her many pupils, and! estab
lished tor herseir as a teacher a mot en
viable name. A proof orthcapprcciation
or our people for Ml Maggie may be
seen by the fact that the board or educa
tion, without solicitation, gave to her a
letter or the highest recommendation.
Profussor Alvord alo paid her the same
compliment. The ladies leave our city
with the esteem and friendship of all. and
we do not doubt that they will liud
many warm hearts to welcome them in

Since the death of L. W. Karber. which
occurred at Nashville on Thursday

The deceased was born on the banks of

removed to this State, where at the age
or ten. he was left an orphan. In 1SG.1
be entered Into a partnership lu the gro
cery business, witli Mr. J. 11. Mltcair,
which was carried on until 1S00, when he
sold out his interest in the store, and
went to California. He returned to this
city in the same year, nnd lu 1870, was
married lo Miss Sajlic Mayes, a daughter
of .Mrs. E. G. Hill. Mr. llarber and his
wire moved to Nashville, Tennessee, hi the
latter part of 1870. where he commenced
the manufacture of vinegar m company
with P. (1. JSoche, or that city. The Unit
also opening a commission house, under
the firm name of Uochc & llarber. The
deceased was energetic, industrlou,and a
good business man, and was very pros
perous. About two years ago he was at
tacked with parnlysls In tho left side, and
which dually affected his brain to such n
degree that lie was taken to the State asy
lum at Nashville for treatment. Every
effort was made to restore his mind, but
each In turn failed, and on Thursday he
died.
In attendance at the funeral were the
grief stricken wife, and Mr.-. Ella Wins

The remains were Interred lu Olive

was lined by Judge p.lrd live dollars and
tlie usual trimmings, ami went out with
his custodian to hunt a man.
Jame Mooro ami Mary Hunter were
arrested by (JllleeisAndv C;dn ami Mar
tin O'Maley for disorderly conduct Sun
day night. When the olllcers went Into
the domicile ot Henry ami attempted to
take them out, Mary' hot blood got the
upper hand other and she gently comb
ed O'Maley's hair with a twentv 'pound
split bottom chair, and causing to grow
upon that gentleman's head a Urge corn.
.Mary was finally subdued, but now
James began to get crank, and seizing
an ax, he was about to sacilllee O'Maley
but when he was allowed to gaze Into the
muzzle of Cain's revolver, he swung out

Mr. Mulkcy, who appeared for the de

that they were only playing when the ol
llcers entered Jaincsi' hou-e, and they
were discharged. O'Maley and Culnsay
Ihey never played that way.

Several very provoking errors marred
tho local and editorial pages of the l!ri.-
.ktix on Sunday morning. Saturday
was the llrst of the mouth with It Mils
to pay, and the devil seemed to bo to pay
ii this olllce. Whoever has been propri
etor of a littlu new.-papcr and job prlnt-
ug olllce lu a little city, can sympathize
with us. Cashier, business man, proor
reader, editor, printer everything hi the
ofllce, and a public spirited citizen to be
consulted by lot ol folks, the owner of a
little printing ollice Is the busiest and
most nil'crable of men particularly
when thojo he has hi hi employ don't
care a cuss and are too precious to bo
dispensed with. Well, wo are that pro
prietor; and ever since Sunday morning
when wo read tho Hui.i.khx we liae
been sinful very sinful. Hut thank the
Lord! lite Is short. It is a happy thought
that tlie proprietor of a littlu printing
ofllce, run by lilin and his friends, must
not live alway.
