published a card iti Tuesday morning's
BcLLtTiN', which requires some expla
nation at my hands. Those of the citi
zens of Cairo who know the man ilob
berts, I am sure would pay no attei.
to anything he may say, but th je who
are not acquainted with him, may be
misled as to the tacts in the case. The
circumstances leading to Robbert's ar
rest were these: Some time ago llob
berts appeared before Ju.lge Bird and
procured a warrant for tlie arrest ol Mr.
Michael O'Donnell. The warrant was
placed in my hands to execute,
and read to Mr. O'Donnell, and
notified him to appear before
Judge Bird at a stated time.
1 also notified Kobbberts of the time
when the case would be tried, and
warned him, as the prosecuting witness,
not to fail to tie present. When the
case was called Mr. O'Donnell was in
court and ready tor trial, but Robberts
did not put in an appearance; aud after
waiting a reasonable length of time
Judge Bird dismissed the case against
Mr. O'Donuell and assessed the costs
against. Koberts, belieylng the prosecu
tion on his part to have been prompted
by malice rather than a desire to vindi
cate the law. An execution for the costs
was made out and delivered to me, and
after waiting on Robberts nearly a
month, during which time he promised
frequently to attend to the matter and
see that It was settled, I called on him
aud told him I nm$t have the money.
lie declared he would not pay
the execution, and wanted
to kuow what I intended to do
about it. I told him I would have to lock
him up, when he said, "all right; let's
go;" and we started towards the Jail, but
alter taking a few steps he stopped, and
in language more forcible than elegaut,
denounced me for all that wad good, bad
aud iiiditlerent, and declared that lu
would not go with me. However, I
finally succeeded lu getting him as far as
Judge Bird's office, where I procured a
warrant lor him on a charge ot abusive
language. Robberts being drunk at the
time, Judge Bird declined to try him, and
ordered him tu Jail until
sober. After remaining in
jail nearly a day, some of hu friends
paid the execution and he was released.
The next day alter being released Irom
the jail he appeared before Judge Bird
and plead guilty to the charge ot obscene
language, and was lined $3 and the usual
costs. This Is the whole story In a nut
shell ; aud I hope it is the last time I will
be called on to reply to anything this
vagabond Robberls may say,

THIEVES AT WORK.
A Hold and Iteapernto Attempt at
Araiu and Slobbery.
One of Ihe boldest aud most reckless
attempts to commit robbe ry that has oc
curred in Cairo in many years, w as made
Kf.SIDKNCK OF Mil. WM. KKNDELL,
at the corner of Thirty-fourth street and
Washington Avenue, between
eleven and twelve o'clock yes
terday. Mr. Kendall with the men in
his employ were at work In a field some
distance Irom the house. Mrs Kendall,
w ith a colored woman and a small col
ored girl were the only persons about
the house, and they were all busily en
gaged in preparing the noon-day meal
for the gardners and farm hands.
About half past eleven o'clock,
the colored girl referred to
had occasion to go into the yard
when she discovered a small cross fence
between the barn and the fence along
Thirty-fourth street to be
ON l lHE,
She gave the alarm, and in a tew seconds
Mrs. Kendall and the colored woman ran
to put out the tire. It took some
time to ct it out, and they
had hardly completed extinguishing the
flames in the fence, w hen they discovered
BARN WAS ALSO Hl'RNTNT.
After ten minutes hard work they suc
ceeded in quenching this fire also ; and
then returned to the house. But on en
tering the house
Presented itself that fairly startled them.
The dek where all ot Mr. Kendall's
private papers were kept had been
broken open aud scattered ubout the
room. A bureau had been ransacked,
and tlie contents of its drawers turned
out on the floor. The bed ticks were
ripped open, and a private room seldom
used by the family had been broken Into
and ransacked. Indeed, almost every
nook and earner ot the house had been
searched by the thieves.
However, obtained little or no plunder,
as Mr. Kendall Is a very prudent man
aud keeps his money in bank.
After the surprise and scare had part
ly subsided the women gave the alarm,
SKAKCIt m THE THIKl,
Or thieves, was commenced, but no sign

this city in years, and it was evidently
the work ol parties who are well posted
as to the plans of Mr. Kendall's residence
and knew just w hen the male portion of
