basis it is safe to say that not less than
one thousand persons took supper at the

with the view of leasing the ground floor
of his Commercial avenue building, now

tee will close the bargain, and at
once proceed to lit It up for
the purpose stated. The room
will be lurnished with chairs, tables, etc.,
and properly lighted. It will also be
supplied with suitable reading matter for
all classes. It is the object of the corns

Mr. Sam Hudson, known to be a trust

the following hellish scheme of Jno.
Fitzpatrlck and wile, Fitzpatrlck and
wife and Hudson, boarded a fiat-boat
an route to Vlcksburg seven days since,
Hudson paying his passage by working
on the boat and Fitz giving a bureau and
his services lor his passage to Mr. Jno.
rhriatman. the Dronrletor. a
a-antieman of some fiftv summers. On
several occasions Fitz made a pro-
nnsldon to Hudson to murder Christ-
man and take the boat and contents,
and changing the appearance of the flat
as best they could, in order to prevent
Its Identification. In the meantime, how
ever, Fitz took particular care that Hud-
son should have no chance
of communicating the scheme
to Chrlstman," Thus matters stood nn
til they laid up at Dog Tooth Bendt
While there Fitz made a proposition to
Hudson to go out hunting, which he did.
When In the woods the plot was again
broached and Hudson denounced Fitz
in' a manner well deserved, whereupon
Fitz ordered him not to return to the boat.
The first named not being armed
and knowing Fitz to be a notorious ohar
acter, complied with the order and walk
ed from Dogtooth to Cairo and laid the
ease before Sheriff Saup.
This man, Fitzpatrlck . stole a
beef from a butcher In Centralia last
fall, and Is now under $500 bond.
A lookout is being kept constantly for
tbe boat by the officers.
Hudson loses his trunk, clothes and
