this city uninterruptedly since in various
portions of the town. All tho facilities
and necessary appurtenances for the
manufacture ot candy arc owned by this

Ullin one thousand pounds of tlinVretit
varieties oi canines were sent. Mr. Saup
purehaes his fancy candies in largo lots
from the east, he having jut received an
Invoice of tlve thousand pound a few
days- since. He now has in .-tock some
thing over llfieen thousand pounds of
lancy and stick, and will shortly receive
a large addition. Among the choice as

31 r. James II. Carter, had eoino to the

dercr Harrison Burkelew, who was con
fined In the county Jail here for safe
keeping, back to Vienna lor trial. Sherifi
Carter with his prisoner arrived lu Vien

and on Thursday morning Burke
lew was placed on trial. The trial occu
p!"d the timeof the court from Thursday
iionMi'.' till Monday afternoon, when tho
c i-e Mas given to tho jury. The Jury
were out some four or five hour, when
at 0 o'clock Monday night they returned
a verdict of guilty, fixing the penalty nt
death. We are unable to give tml par
ticular oi tho crime lor which
Burkelew was convicted, further
than that it was for the
murder of a man named Davis at chap
man & Hess' mill at Foreman some time
In June or July last. The murder Is said
to have been col 1 blooded, and without
tho least cause or provocation. Judge
Dougherty presided at the trial of Burke
lew. Since writing the above we lcaru more
about the ca-r-. Tho prosecution was
conducted by O. A. Marker, Esq., and
States Attorney C. M. Fisher, and the
defense by Cupt. John JI. Thomas of
Metropolis, and A. G. Daineron ol Vien

pending arid will be argued to.day.
This is th lirst rase in the history of

been death. The court is now engaged

The Mary Houston is at Cincinnati

600 hhds. tobacco, 2000 bales ot cotton
and a large lot ot sundries. The Idea ol
tobacco, being grown within a few miles
ot Evunaville, shipped to New Orleans,
and back to EvansyiHe to go to
New York is a noyel one

Testerday morning news ot the sink
ing ot the towboat Bee was received. She
sunk Monday night at It) o'clock, near
Moccasiou Spring, 15 miles above Cape
Girardeau, and 120 miles below this city.
Sho went down In 13 feet ef water, cou.
sequently, with a six-foot hull, she has
r.ow 7 lect of water over her decks. Only
meager details of the accident could be
gleaned yesterday, but Capt. H. C.
Ilanrstlck claims that she lies straight,
ami can raised, whllo others
are of opinion she cannot
possibly be raised. It is believed that
she struck a rock, and that her bottom is
pretty badly broken. She bad a number
of barges in tow, and was making her
first visit to St. Louis in many weeks,
having been engaged in exchanging tows
with the Future City and Grand Lake
for some time. Her barges are safe and
it was uoubtless better that this boat
should sink than one of the barges, as
their cargoes were ol as much, it not
greater, value than the boat itself. The
tol lowing is a description of the boat :
She was built at Pittsburg in the win
ter of 1805, and was thoroughly reoalred
in the summer of 1874, at the Carondelet
ways. Her dimensions were 105 feet
long, 29J teet wide, 5 ieet deep. Her
machinery is described as follows: five
boilers 24 ieet long', 40 Inches In diame
ter; two cylinders 0J feet stroke, 22 Inch
es in diameter; water wheel 23 feet In di
ameter. In May, I8C6, she was valued at
$15,000, and last May she was placed at
$20,000. I n consequence of recent alter
ations she was probably worth about
$25,000 at the time she sunk. She was
built for and owned by the Mississippi
Valley Transportation Company.
Capt. S. A. Louis was in command at
the timo of tho accident. Capt. It. W.
Dusran and two divers left on the City of
Chester last night for the scene oi the
wreck, and this morning Capt. John
Spane, with the wrecking boat Salvor,
will follow, to arrive by tho time Capt.
Dtigan has made his preliminary exam
