Charlie Johnson is In trouble hgain.
Charlie was locked up a week ago lust
Sunday on a charge of drunkenness, and
the following day Judge Bird sentenced
him to eight days iu the lockup. His
time was out on Sunday eveulng and he
was released. In less tban two hours he
was full too full of whisky for utter
ancc-and Officers Sargent nnd Cain
found it necessary to return him to the
lock-up. Yesterday Judge Bird gavi
him tour hours to leave the city, and he
promised to go, and was discharged.
Our attention has been called to a
small hand-bill, printed In Vinccnues,
announcing an excursion from that city
to Cairo on next Sunday. Thu bill an
nounces a grand camp-meeting of colored
folks at tills place, and an oratorical con
test In which Judgo Bird is to part Id
pate. We are authorized by Judge Bird
to say that this whole affair Ij a swindle
a money-making scheme gotten up by
designing persons without his conaeut or
knowledge. He desires his friends to de
nounce It and Its authors as being uu
worthy of countenance or respect.

McCartney of the Metropolis Tim
took a trip over the Csiro and .Vincen
nes railroad tbe other day, aud this is
what he has to say about It : Last week
we traversed the Cairo and Vincenncs
railroad from Grand Chain to Harris-
burg. This portion ot the road is the
Switzerland of Southern Illinois. The
scenery on this portion of the road is
truly grand. Passing over deep ravines,
through mountain passes and cuts in solid
rocks, and even into the bowels
of the earth affords . a constant
change ot view so dlffereni from
tho monotony of the plain that
tbe eflect is pleasing. While going over
the road we viewed very narrowly and
intently all those places which gome mis
chievious persons insist are dangerous,
and came to the conclusion that the road
including its bridges, tresels and em
bankments are among the safest In the
country. The road is in good repair
and its officers and employes are among
the best we have ever met on railroad.
We are happy to add that we are in
formed that the road is constantly
increasing its business and its income."
We tiud the following in the last is.
sue of the Metropolis Timt : "Judge
Baker was one day last week presiding
over his court at Vienna in his usual
solemn manner, when iu rushed Uncle
Lewis Hugg, ot the Adams' express
company, with a package and spread
out upon his desk the open receipt book
ot the company, imploring Lis honor for
his autograph. The judge signed, and
with a dubious look took up the pack
age and began with just such care and
doubt depicted upon hi? face as if he had
his bands nn infernal machine he
was forced to handle. On opening it he
found a present from Alfred Bridges, a
outh sentenced by him a year ago to the
penitentiary from Johnson county, of a
beautllul book made of solid stone Inlaid
with pieces from various kingdoms ot
Europe and polished with the highest
care. 1 he ludge felt easy and bis eoun
tenance became placid as he handed it
down to the members ot the bar. Alfred
lias commenced learning a trade that
may render hia imprisonment an advan
tage to him.
The congregation at the M. E.
church on Sunday evening was more
than usually large, the greater part of
those present having gone simply to wit
ness the wedding announced to take
place. At the conclusion ol the sermon,
the bridal party, Mr. A. G. Livings
and Miss Lizzie L. Smith, ac
companied by Miss Emma James and
Mies Kate Hewitt as bride's maids.
nd Mr. Wm. Johnson and Mr. Woa.
Ilaythorn as groomsmen, entered the
church and proceeding tothe platform in
front or the pulpit, took their position.
The ceremony was then performed by
the Key. Mr. GQlham, and at Its
conclusion the newly-wedded pair re
turned to the bride's home on Eighth
street where, a reception lasting neatly
two hours was held. After the
reception, accompanied by a nuni'
her of their fj-iends, Mr. Livings
conducted his bride to the home prepared
for her in W Inter's row. Spending an
hour or so with them there, their friends
departed, and Mr. and Mrs. Livings were
left to themselves. Like sensible young
people, they have settled down to house'
