A rtsTOt. SHOT.
On Thursday night between blue and
teu o'clock the people living on Ninth
street between Commercial and Washing
ton avenues, wens startled by the report
of a pistol, and many of
them hurried Into the street
to learn what was going on.
From one of the persons who heard the
shot, and who was soon on the ground
where the shooting was done we gittier
ed Ihe follow ing facts:
m. TOtf Mo,
A tailor employed by Mr. John Antrim,
owncs a house on the. west side of Ninth
streot near Commercial aveuue. Mr.
King, who Is an old bachelor, or a wid
ower, we dou't know which, occupies a
room In the back part ol the house, while
Charlie Thieckmorton, a colored man,
occupies the front room. The entrance
to the part of the houe occupied by
h In; is made by way of aside; porch
which Is enclosed by lattice woik, and a
door leading to the sidewalk on Ninth
Between nine and ten e'clot k King came
home, and taking the key to the door
above referred to from his pocket was In
the act of unlocking the door, when
HE WAS SHOT AT
by some one on the outer edge of the
sidewalk. King turned about quickly,
and a? he did so saw a man with a razor
in his right hand coining at him, but
when the would-be assas-in got n fair
view of King's face, he stoj.p.-d, stood
still tor an instant, and then

NOW TOR THE SEO.UF.L.
Throckmorton, who is known to al
most everybody in Cairo, Is also a mat
tress and carpet maker, and does buel-
nesJln the way of repairing furniture
etc. riometime ago Throckmorton's
w ife, who Is. reputed to be a white wo
man, left him and went to live in a houe
on Twelth street some where back ol
Walnut, Since leaving Throckmorton
SHK HAS BECOME "THICK WITH BICKS,'
And as a consequence ajdeudly enmity .has
grownup between ihrockmorton and
the old man. Not only this but Hicks
and his wife have had considerable trouble
and it is said the old man has given her
StVhRAL TERRIBLE BEATIN'US.
Mrs. Throjkmorton goes to Hicks' shop
aud assists him In his work, and this has
so enraged her husband that llitks and
her have had several wordy quarrels.bat
have never come to blows. When Hicks
conceived the idea of ruttine
Throckmorton out of the way is not
known, but that he intended to do the
work thoroughly when he did do it Is
certain. When King approached the
house Hicks evidently

and attempted to kill him as above
tated. He evidently ment to shoot him
and then cut his throat.
King, the man who to narrowly es
caped Hicks' murderous desrie, yes
terday swore out a warrant lor the arrest
of the old man and placed it i i Sheriff
Saup's handt. The sheriff soon atttr
Whom he found in the yard back ol his
shop on Commercial avenue. The old
man had but little to say aboat the af
fair, but his conduct was such as to
convince the officers that no mistake was
made wheu he was charged with this
most diabolical attempt to take the life of
a tellow being. He was locked up in the
county jail, and will probably be brought
out for a hearing to-day.
Ilia Duty of lleuioiral.
There are a few Democrats in Cairo
erho, because the candidates for v horn
they had special preference were not Dom
inated at the convention on last Saturday
evening, have said they will not vote the
Democratic ticket on Tuesday next. No
good Democrat should allow his person
al preferences to so warp his feelings
as to iuduce hiui ' to vote against
the candidates of his party when they
are reguiany aim lainy nominated.
That the gentlemen nominated secured
their nominations by fraud orchicauery
has cot even been hi a ted at by any one;
but on the coutrary the very men who
have, said they would not support the
ticket admit that the convention was
one of the fairest ever held In the city.
More than this, suppose the Democrats
who are now disposed to
"boll'' the ticket should have
secured the nomination ol their particu
lar favorites, and tho friends of Dr.
Smith, Mr. Stockrleth, Mr. Fred Smith
aud Mr. Fitzgerald should have acted as
they are now acting, w hat would they
say r Would they not call down at;one
swoop the curses of all tho gods on the
heads of the "bolters." But the friends ot
the gentlemen above named would not
have "botled." They went Into tho con
vention in good faith, and were willing
to abide the result ; and we hope and be
lieve that thote Democrats who aro in.
cliacd to go with the opposition will be
wise and before eieeuou ciay, come
over and act aud rote with the majority.
Democrats cannot afford to be divided
in this contest. It we ex
pect te establish the supremacy
of the Democratic party lu Cairo aud
Alexander county wo must act together
and as one man. With a lair working
majority in the city we should not allow
the opposition to defeat us on account ot
petty dissensions In our own ranks. Alt
good Democrats should think ol this aud
govern themselves accordingly.

To the Editor ol the Brt.LF.TiN :
Dear Sir : On the 7th day ol the
present month, I held an Inquest over
the body of a man supposed by
the coroner's "Jury to be about
eighteen or twenty years of age. The
body was lound In the river near this
place, it was the opiuion of tho jury
that the man had been murdered, as
there were two ugly cuts ou his neck,
where he had been stabbed by some sharp
mi ulju ttAsee i ei r,
Both legs taken oil at the thigh, and
both anus at the shoulder joints, and
all that was left of what had once been a
human being was the headless, armless
and legless trunk. The jury surmised,
and it was only surmised, as to bis age,
as there are none ot the marks about the
body by which the age ol a human can
usually be guessed at. There was no hair
on any part of the body. 1 send you
this letter with the hope that its publi
cation may be the means ot throwing
some light ou this aflair, and possibly
lead to the discovery ol how the uufortu
uate mau came to his Ueulh. 1 believe
have no doubt, but that he was murdered,
and his body mutilated and thrown into
the river to prevent Identidcatiou, even
though the-body be found.
