A few nights ago, ten cars of cattle,
from Kagle Fort, Texas, passed through

this city over the St. Louis, Iron .Moun

ten cars, we are informed, are but a fore
runner of one thousand ears of catlle
which arc to be shipped from Kagle

A negro boy fell into the torn-up
Tweltth street sewer yesterday, and un
fortunately injured his innocent shins.
His good mother was much disturbed,
and avows her intention to sue the city

ed Hayes people, and "she's a going for
to see" if there Is law In the country
to protect her race against traitors.
She has written to Morton, and hopes to
have a congressional Investigating com

Mr. C. N. Hughes fell into a peaceful
sleep on .Monday afternoon. When he
woke up, alter dreaming an hour or two
of cool lorests und pebbly brooks, he
saw within the shadow of his room, u
man. "What do you want?" he asked
of the stranger. " Nothing,'1 said the
man; "nothing; I'm a portrait painter,
and 1 wanted to see if 1 could take your
ortrait." Mr. Hughes was sure the
art'st couldn't take his picture, and told
bin! so. The ui tit left, and Mr. Hughes
slumbered again. When he woke again,
he wanted to know the time of day; but
he couldn't liud his watch. The artist,
who had not taken Hughes' face, hud
taken his leave. Mr. Hughes made
a lew desultory remarks, and then
requested .-iheritf Irvin to go after the
taking gcniu.1 ol his oflicc bcilroonj. Tlio
sheriff went, but when last we heard
from Mr. Hughes he was saving to his
Iriends; "Will you please inform me of

Parson I aid well has concluded to nut

being too early tor the other boys to be
out, little Johnny Gibson, a colored lad,
amuspil himell by throwing elones into
the house of a negro women named Mr.
Green, living on Thirteenth street, which
very naturally aroused the hot blood ot

Johnny's mother thereupon became in

about to separate them, when Gib.-on,

father ot Johnny, waked up and re
marked that he'd take a little of that in

The rase of William Scott, coloreit,
against the Cairo and Vinceunes railroad
company, was up liefore Mr. Henry II.
Candee, l uited Stales commissioner,
yesterday. Scott made out his case very
clearly in the evidence, but was shoved
out ol court without difficulty. The de
fendant did not offer any evidence ; but.
after Scott had been heard, moved, by
8. P. Wheeler, Esq., to discharge the de
fendants for the reasons follow ing :
1st. The said complaint Is uncertain.
2d. The said complaint fails to show
how these defendants nlded or abetted
Thomas Swinder in the commission of
the alleged offense.
3d. The complaint tails to allege aud
show that Scott and his wife were dis
criminated against tor reasons not appli
cable to citizens of every race and color.
4th. 'Ibe said complaint fails to charge
the commission ot any crime, or the vio-l-ftion
of any act ot congress recognized
and held by the courts to be valid, con
stitutional and binding.
otli. Because the said supposed act ot
congress alleged to have been violated in
said complaint has been held aud decided
by the supreme court of the Cuited
States to have been passed without
warrant of the constitution and Is there
Commissioner Candee sustained the
motion on the ground that the 4th and
oth reasons were conclusive.

Iu the case of the People vs. the Illi
nois Central Railroad Company, Judge
David J. Baker, of the Alexander coun
ty circuit court. Moudar made r.ti im
This case was a bill in chancery charg
ing that the tracks, sv itches, and turn
outs and yellow warehouse ami elevators,
uml the property of the Illinois Central
railroad company, on Levee street, in
this city, were ruiblie nuisances, nml
praying for injunction. The rase has
been pending since 1S73, and a number
of interlocutory orders have heretofore
been made. Monday .liidirc Baker an
nounced his final decree in the case. His
holdings were, In substance, that the llli
nnis Central railroad company is, under
its contract with the Trustee of the i airo
ity Property, entitled to two tracks on
Levee, street and no more; that all other
track., ext'ept wliak is known as the mill
sw itch, are public nuisances, and nni-d
be removed; that the two tracks can be
Used only for the passage of trains to and
from the grounds of the company, and
not tor making up trains, switching nml
standing cars thereon. The court furth
er held, that the two tracks ns now con
structed, from Fourth to Fourteenth
street, and Irom F.lghtccnth to Twenty -F.ighths
street, are public nuisances and
must lie planked ami improved as requir
ed by the ordinances of the city (Chapter
XV, Section S, Kevised Ordinances),
as follows :
Skction 8. It shall be the duty of nil
railroads that have constructed, or shall
hereatter construct, any track or trucks
upon any of the streets, avenues, allcj s
or highways of the city, to plank be
tween the rails of such track, upon the
rross-ties, with good, clear. White oak
plank, of not less than three inches in
thickness nor more than six inches in
width; to he well spiked to the cross
lies with spikes of not less than six
inches in length. Ssid plunk shall be
laid from the center between the rails to
within two Inches of each rail, measur
ing from the ton of the plank to the top
ol the rail. The space between said
plank and the rail shall be packed with
line gravel to within one inch ol the top
of the rail ; nt least two planks of the
aforesaid description to Im-, laid upon the
outside of each rail the first to be laid
flush wilh the rail ; sai l plank to be
spiked as aforesaid; and when there are
two or more tracks laid or to be laid upon
any of the streets, avenues, ullrys or
highways, the space between such track
shall be planked with like material and
in like manner as atoresaid by such rail
road. The court held the elevator aud yellow
warehouse to be public nuisance, and
ordered them to be removed.
We cannot tell what will be the effect
of this decree. If enforced, the Illinois
Central railroad company w ill be put to
$."i0,0i0 or $100,000 expense. 1 he w are
house and elevator will be torn down,
and all the tracks aud sw itches nnd a
part ol the transfer Inclined plane be re
moved. RIVER NEWS.
