Attempt to flnrn tbeOonuly Jail.
Yesterday morning about three o'clock
Jailer Dan McCarthy was aroused by the
cry of fire among tho prisoners. On
investigation it was ascertained that tho
roan Farrow, convicted a few days ago
ot the crime ot Incendiuryism, and now
awaiting to be removed to the peniten
tiary, to which institution ho has been
sentenced for a term of nine years, had
tried to burn his way out of the county
jail. The cell in which Farrow is con-
tlnd is lined with boiler iron, but by some
means he succeeded In bending up a
small portion ot the iron In one corner
of the cell, and then set the woodwork
on Are. In a very short time the cell was
filled with smoke, and Farrow, becoming
alarmed for his own safety, with the other
prisoners set up a lusty cry of tire, which

that It is only necessary lor the river to
break up here to resume navigation, but
those who so think know little of the ef
fect of the Ohio on the navigation of the
Upper Mississippi from Grand Tower to
Cairo. The Ohio rise backs up the Mis

above Devil's Island, and the
ice from above Is forced
down and gorged to an immense denth
at the head of the back water, and llisre
