from a well-known citizen of this county :
ll iiua aoa Milu, ALiiAJfom O., )
Jan. S IT. I
To the Ed iter of the Bcllitik:
Dear Sir: The cutting aflray at this
place on Christnius ere occurred in about
this way: Thomas McCauliff and John
Campbell, employes on the Horse
Shoe mills, visited Farron's saloon,
and, having drank freely, were
pretty drunk when they left
the saloon on their return to the mill.
On the way back they bad a tailing out,
and came to blows. During the fight
McCauliff stabbed Campbell three times,
inflicting wounds from which he died on
the Friday following.. McCaulifl made
his escape and has not been heard ot
since. The men were in the employ of
A. D. Finch. Campbell's parents reside
in Cnicago. I am Informed that Camp
bell left no efiects of any value. David
Bishop, justice of the. peace and acting
coroner, held an Inquest on the body, and
the verdict ot the jury was "died from
wound Inflicted with a knife in the hands
of Thomas McCauliff." Justice.
The man McCaulifl relerred to In the
above letter Is a bad aud dangerous man,
and this is not the first cutting scrape in
which he has had a hand. . Last summer
McCaulii was employed in Messrs. Mor
ris, Rood & Co.'s mill, at Ullin, and hav
ing a quarrel with a colored boy, stabbed
him several times, Inflicting wounds which
nearly proved fatal. Mc'.'auliff made
his escape, and nothing was heard of bim
until the killing of Campbell. We have
a few hundred just such men in this end
of the state, and if about two-thirds of
them could be hanged it would be a srood
Tli-l'a What tha Oonnrll Oouinmtee
Did In the l awn of OHIeera Barg-eol
The committee on police, Jail and fire
department held another meeting yes ten
day afternoon for the purpose ot making
their report to be presented to the city
council in the case of the suspended offi
cers Sargent and McCarthy. All the
members ot the committee, Messrs.
Wright, O'Callahan and Foley, and Bis
Honor Mayor Winter, were present. The
committee was not long In coming to an
understanding as to the nature of their
report. They were all of oiys mind, that
tho evidence presented to the com
mlttee did not sustain the
charges agatust the oflccrs, and It was
unanimously agreed to so report to the
mayor and council, and recommend that
the suspended officers be returned to du
ty. This report having been agreed
upon, Mayor Wluter at onoe communis
cated with officers Sargent and McCar
thy, and Instructed them to at onoe re
sume their places on the toroe, And so
endeth the chapter, Though the mayor,
under all the circumstances, could not
have done less than he did do, there can
be little doubt the stories which prompt
ed him to take the course be did were
the result of malice on the part of bis In
formants. Tho olficers, however, have
proven themselves Innocent of the
charges and have been returned to duty,
which should be, and no daunt Is, glory
enough lor them.
Tuet will Comb in.-It is pretty cer
tain that tbo statements made by some
of the officials of the Cairo and St. Louis
railroad that rather than put down their
trade on the strip of ground between
New Levee street and the Mississippi
river, they would stay out of the city al.
together, were made with the view ot
obtaining the sentiments of the people of
Cairo on the question ol granting them
the right of way down Washington ave
nue to Thirty-fourth street. Having ac
complished their purpose, and finding
that It would be impossible to obtain
permission to come down Wash
ington avenue, we learn, through
private sources, that the man
agement of the road has
concluded to accept the situation and
that the track will be put down on the
strip between the levee and the river,
and that too at an early day. We are
glad to hear this, and commend the wis
dom ol the management of the road in
taking this course. There is room
enough on this strip of ground to put
down ball a dozen tracks, and that too
without danger lrom the riyer, as the
wash there has not lor the last three
months amounted to anything. The
work done by the government, though
it has not so lar cost to exceed $20,000,
has done a great deal ol good; and when
tho appropriation now asked for is ob
tained and there 13 scarcely a doubt that
it will be obtained Is expended, the
narrow gauge road will be as safe outside
the new levee as it would be in the inside
of it. There is every reason why the
management of the Cairo & St. Louis
railroads and the people of this city
should be on friendly terms, and not on
good reason wby they should not be so,
A little forbearance and moderation on
both sides might be indulged in without
Injury to either, and if the proper steps
are taken to accomplish this much to be
desired end, all differences between the
contending parties can be settled in an
amicable and equitable manner.

We have shipped more grain the

Our facilities for transferring lrom barge
