Sometime ago Chief of Police Goss
man arrested a man named John Duffy
alias John Donnelly, for breaking into
and stealing goods from cars on the Illi.
nols Central railroad. Dully was tried
before Judge Bross and was held to bail
n the sum ot $600. For some time pre-
vloua to the arrest of Duffy It was known
that an organized band of thieves existed
here, but all efforts to break It up failed
until Duffy fell Into the hands ot the offl'
cera. Duny's arrest, nowever, was tne
beginning of tbe end of the operations
of the gang, for several days af
ter his arrest, he sent lor the chief
ot police and told Lira the whole history
of the operations of tbe gang, aud gave
bim the names of all the parties belong
ing to it. With this lutormatlon Chief
Gossman and Officers Andy Cain and
Sargent staned out and arrested John
McCarthy, keeper of a peanut stand on
Ohio levee between Twellth street aud
tbe Stone depot, and Lewis Stewart and
Johu Williams, who were taken before
Judge Bross for a beurlng. Duffy was
brought iuto court and detailed the op
erations of the thieves from beginning to
end. After hearing Duffy's evidence the
parties were all held to bail in the sum ot
six hundred dollars each. Two of tbe
gaug, ou hearing of Duffy's arrest, left

Tbe particulars of the arrest ot these
parties has been kept quiet in the hope
that the parties yet at large might return
to the city, but it is now pretty certain
that they have gone for good.

Are often soothed by Uostctter's Stom
ach bitters, because that searching cor
rectiveness completely removes the causes
ot brain and nerve excitement, which
are to be found In derangemeut of the
stomach, and ot its associate organs, the
liver and bowels. It la a truth which
cannot be too earnestly insisted upon,
that the effect ot mere sedatives and nar
cotics, like bromide of potassium, valer
ian, chloral, hydrate and opium, is less
appreciable the longer they are used, and
that they can never purmanently relieve
nervous excltablltty, because they can
not remedy the weakness and organic de
rangement which lies at its roeta. flos-

cure nervous maladies, for the reason al
ready stated. Sick headache, restless-
ness at night, vertigo, mental heaviness,
and depression of spirits, as well as the

torpidity ot the liver and bowels, which
glye rise to them, are entirely obviated
by tbis benign alterative tonic.

Cullom's appointment of Mr. Oberly :
It gives ns pleasure to let tbe people of
Lnion county know or one appointment
which is a truly meritorious one. We re
fer to the appointment by Gov. Cullom
of John H. Oberly, Esq., of Cairo, to the
railroad and warehouse commission.
Southern Illinois has been hitherto
pretty generally ignored In the matter of
appointments. Now that the governor
has shown hi3 good sense bv
ignoring sectional lines iu the
great state over which he
rules, we are glad that hU penetration
has discovered in "John" the verv man
for the position. Ot remarkable ability,
polite and affable to all men. a ready de
lator, a deep thinker and sound reasoner,
we know of no man (so long as Union
county could not get it,) that is more
worthy, we do not want it understood
that we think it necessary for us to have
a railroad and warehouse board at all.
Wa are opposed to it as much as wo are
to returning boards, but so long as It is
the law, no ma n. in our estimation, in
Southern Illinois, could have been se
lected that will please the people better

tutueiixaj is uui luen iort. Thtv have
mistaken their calling and 1
would adTUe thsra to tr0 into

The following Is a portion of another
communication on the same subject.
Kditob BuiLXTL-s t The headline of
the programme issued by the Taylor
Literary club for their entertainment
Friday night, read :
"Ones mors ws greet you,"
and since tbe performance is over, the
almost unanimous sentiment of the pub
lic ls t
"One mora ws hope not to meet you."
It Is not usual to criticise amateur per
formances, but as the Taylor
Literary club minstrels have
given several performances here, and
made a professional tour through Mis
souri, and are now talking of going to
Kentucky, they are subject to criticism. 1
will be as mild as possible with the boys,
but I must say the performance on Fri
day night was miserable. In the first, or
epenlng part, every performer seemed to
be frightened. The Instrumental part of
the entertainment was horrid, and at
times the "music" sounded worse than
the squeaking of a lot of pigs under a
gate. Eisenberg might improve by go

Lally and Walsh were good, and deserve

were all old and contained no wit, or if
