I ncle Daniel George, an honest old
colored man, has stood the st inns of
morn than sixty-live years. Ho has
lived tho life ot a bachelor, and never
until a year Rgo fell in with a wench
witli whom be believed he could live and
be happy. Just about one year
ago Dan'el saw Sarah Christian, a
comely mulatto girl, and as the old man
suvs, "jes so soon as I slapped my eyes
on her, stitnthlu" struck me." Daniel is
not able to tell whit tliaV'suinthiu' " was
but 'every time ho saw that "gal his heatt
went flipet-tlop flipet-flip jes' like a buz
zard's wings." He sorter wanted to be
'round where she was, and alter a.Uiile
he got to saying nice tilings to her, and
she finally agreed to marry him. Daniel
hail several hundred dollars in money,
and w ben Sarah Christian consented to
"jinf! him lor life." he gave tho greater
part ol it to her for safe keeping. Tho
wedding day was set,;, and Daniel
bought himself a lot of
new duds,' and Jmado ull the necessary
arrangements for the event. The wed
ding wa to take plac some time soon
and Daniel never once suspected his
Sarah ol being false to him. But she
v.--, for a few d iys ago she went off and
married another fellow, and spent all of
poor old Dan's money in buying her
wedding out-fir. It was two or three
day s after the wedding when old Dun
beard ol it, and the knowledge
that his idolized Sarah had
been false lo him, almost broke hi old
heart. He brooded over the matter tor
several days, nnd liiinlly concluded to
put an end to his misery by committing
suL-ide, Accordingly on Saturday
morning last he resolved to carry his
determination into execution. He lelt
his home nnd went into the woods,
nnd with a huge ktillc cut his throat
from car to car, almost severing the
wind-pipe. In this condition he was
found a few hour later and was removed
to his home and a physician called to sec
him. l!c was tound to be in a critical
eond.tion and liable, to slit. Ill off at any
moment. Oa Sunday he was brought tu
Cairo and put into the hospital lor treat
ment, o'u Monday he was getting along
as well hs could be "expected under the
circumstances," and ltn may recover.

Our community has been for several
days, and Is still, In a terrible state of ex
citement over the abduction by a man
claiming to be named John W. Walker,
hailing from St. Louis, of tho eldest
daughter of one ol our respectable citi
zen a haudsome, intelligent young lady
of about twenty year of age a most
heartless and Infamous act.
the facts op tub case
Are as follows : About six weeks ago
the parties became acquainted, and Walk
er, after one or two visits, proposed mar
riage, to which the parents strenuously
objected, the lather ot the young lady
enforcing his views by kicking Walker
out ot his house. Subsequently lie had
nn Interview with tho young lady, who
demanded Indisputable proof ot his
character, standing, etc. It is said that
Walker exhibited to her and the family
letters purporting to be from hh lather,
mother and sister, stating his connection
FAMILY OF wr.AL.TH
And respectability, am! that he was a
single man; and he also exhibited to the
young lady dratts or checks represent
Ing several thousand dollars, claiming
them to be genuine and to his credit In
bank in St. Louis, and also exhibited a
profusion of line jewelry, presenting her
a line diamond ring. Whilo all these
did not rcu. v saitsi v
The parents who still objected to the
marriage, it seems that the scoundrel
so worked on the affections ol the young
lady as to induce birr to elopo with him,
which slii- did about ton davs ago since-
going tirst to Cairo, and subsequently
on a trip Into Kentucky. After till his
protestations of respectability, of.bcing a
single man, etc., it is said, as soon ns ho
got her lully
i:xii:k his io Kit,
And away Irotn her home, he deliber
ately and cooly informed her that he was
a married man, but that he would pro
vide lor her beautifully.
