The repoit that there is, or has been
this scii'-oii, a case of yellow fever at our
Marine Hospital is not borne out by the
facts as stated by Dr. Waldo. The case to
which we make allusion, and from
which tho report doubtless originated, is
one of malarial fever, and is at - present
convalescent. In its incipient stages it had
many of the symptoms of yellow fever
a not unusual circumstance.
Tho rain yesterday was welcomed by
all nature. Tho dust in town had
become almost insufferable, and vege
tation everywhere had about given up the
ghost. It gave new life to everything ani
mate, aud to ourselves was as grateful as the
lion's share of a square divide of other peo
ple's wealth, or the immediate issue of that
$07 per capita, would be. Suitable weather
and sufficient wealth; that comprehends
everything worth having here below.
The small lioys of the town have erect
ed a spring-board on the vacant lot at the
corner of Eighth street and Commercial
avenue, and spend the greater piv t of each
day in imitating tho exploits of the be
spangled heroes of the saw dust ring. Wo
expect to reap at least ono first-class item

onetime yesterday, while watching them,
that the auspicious moment had arrived.

experienced no shock a minute before. His
pluck was admirable, but his judgment
The political enemies of Mr. Comings,
who seem to gloat over what they call his
"scoop" at JotU'sWo, laugh too soon. They
laugh best who laugh last, and all the indi
cations are that Mr. C. will have this pleas
ure. There was a time, it is true, when he
coveted the honor Mr. Houpt gained at
Jone.slMiro, but a look over the txilitica! field
convinced him and his friends that there
were prizes to bo won in the pending canvass
beside which a seat in the general assembly
was as nothing. Mr. C. and his friends, with
remarkable foresight, see that in the next
general assembly the Grecnbackcrs,
if not having an actual ma
jority in that body, will bo sure to control
its action in the selection of a tinted States
Senator. Seeing this they gave the Joncs
boro nomination to Mr. Houpt, with tho
understanding that that gentleman was to
support Mr. Corning as the successor of
Mr. Oglesby, through thick and thin. The
niovem.'iit meets with enthusiasm among
Oreeibackers throughout the state, ami
after it shall havo been consummated and
Mr. C. is in a position to distribute post-
oflices, collectorships, and other fat per
quisites of Ins position, those who are now
laughing at what they foolishly consider
his discomfiture, will hide their diminutive
heads in sorrow and in shame. Senator Com

The Bulletin 1ms already alluded to
tho civso of the old man lying sick at thecoui t
house. His name isTusten John Otinderson.
He understands English with difliculty ami
speaks what little ho knows of it in broken
aud almost unintelligible accents. Through
the persuasion of a Mormon missionary ho
was induced to leave Norway with his wife
about eight years ago and emigrate to
Utah. Eight years among the Mormons
satisfied him, and ho and his wife deter
mined to leave them. They worked their
way from Salt Lake to Omaha, where his
wife found work. Ho left her there and
walked to St. Louis and from St. Louis
here. On tho latter part of his journey ho
says ho was snakc-hittcn, aud his swollen
and festering leg seems to corromirate Ins
story. Alwut a week since county clerk
llumm received a letter from a gentleman
at Omahu in whose employ tho old man's
wife is, inquiring as to his condition, and
whether he was ulive or not. Gunderson's
story to the ofllcials ubout tho court-house
is corroborated by this letter, and all of
them, Mr. John Reevo particularly, have
mado it as comfortable for the old man as
possible, under tho circumstances. He is a
tinsmith by trade and Mr. Reeve has secured
employment for him in tho event of Ids re
covery, which, wc aro sorry to soy, is not
probable. He lacks vitality and seams to
be wasting away. Ho is very
see his wile again, but tho poverty of lioth

THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
DEATH OF NICK SMITH.
SAD BKCjUBL TO TIIE MOUND CITY ELOPE
MENT. Tho readers ofTns Bulletin will re
member tho recount given a few weeks
since in our columns of tho elopement of a
young man named McBridowith the daugh
ter of Mr. Nick Smith, of Mound City.
We stated at tho time that tho eloping pair
were arrested at Chester, in this stato, upon
a telegram sent from this city, and that the
father had started for that point to bring
his daughter home. It appears that upon
his nrrival at Chester ho found
that his daughter had been married, ami
seeing tho uselessness of any further opposi
tion, lie became reconciled to the situation,
and McBrido and his wife- wero permitted
to depart in peace for St. Louis. It wax
supposed at tho time that Smith returned
home, but subsequent events provo tho sup
position to bo incorrect. The Chester Tri
bune of the 3-lth inst., in speaking of the
matter says that Nick Smith arrived there
on Friday evening, July 12th. He was un
der the influence of liquor, and being sub
ject to npopletic fits .ir something similar,
and much excited over his
daughter's runaway, had nn unusual
ly severe shake that night. Next morning
he came on tho hill, in company with his
new-made son-in-law, to consult on attorney
about prosecuting the officers for permitting
his daughter to escape and marry. Ho was
advised from this course. His son-in law
left him and returned to the hotel, ami on
arrival of the boat, departed for St. Louis.
Smith lingered around the court-house for a
while, and then went to the upper part of
town. He complained of feeling unwell. It
is believed he was still drinking. Ho in
quired the way to the penitentiary. Being
out ot money, he wanted to see
D-puty Warden Alex. Irvin, with whom he
was acquainted, to borrow a sufficient
amount to return home. Nothing more
was seen of him. On Tuesday morning
following a mail, in an advanced state of
decomposition, was found midway between
the city and the penitentiary. He was ly
ing under a tree, on the hillside, at full
length, and must have been there two or
three days. From the description we have
of the body, and of the subject of this
sketch, that man was Nick Smith. He was
on his way to the penitentiary, and feeling
unwell, hud laid down and died. The re
mains were interred in Evergreen Cemetery.
Smith was a German by nativity, about
Jorty-tive years old, and at times was very
intemperate in the use of liquor. When
under its influence he was regarded as a
dangerous man, and in a difliculty with a
young man named Dwyer nt Mound City
about five or six years ago ho stabbed and
killed him. For this crime he served out a
term in the penitentiary. Ho owned mid
optr ited u saloon at the time of his death.
Thu Tribune says that Mr. Smith's relatives
have been apprised of tho facts stated,
and a description of the dead man sent

GOOSE ISLAND FIASCO.
A H AX TO CAITl'UB INTKNDINO 1IOIIHEUS
FALLS TIIHOUliU I10W THE SCHEME
About two weeks since tho premises of
Mr. James Mulcahy, at Goose Island, was
entered and robljcd of about eighty dollars
in money. The perpetrators 'of the act left
no clue behind, although suspicions wero
entertained of parties in tho neighborhood.
Shortly after this a clerk iu the employ of
Mr. Mulcahy was approached and and a
scheme to rob his employer broached to
hin'i. After asking time to consider the mat
ter, and receiving it, tho parties who mado
the proposition took their departure. The
clerk at once communicated the nature of
the proposal to his employer, and that gen
tleman at once advised him to enter into
the scheme and keep him posted as to its
progresn. The parties returned in a few
days, and tho clerk told them that after de
liberating over the matter he had concluded
to join them, and stood ready to give them
such information ns he possessed. A sub
sequent meeting of tho plunderers and
the clerk was held and arrangements were
made to cany out their plans.
They were to meet in the
vicinity of the store on Thursday
night, ami with tho assistance of the
clerk carry out their scheme. Mr. Mul
cahy was, of course, informed of their plans
unci accordingly took measures to frustrate
them. Into his secret he let a number of
friends nmtthey armed and prepared them
selves to iiiett the robbers. At the time ap
pointed six men, masked, appeared at the
rendezvous, ready for operations. The
Mulcahy men drew a cordon alxmt
them and closed in. The rob
bers for some reason or other, took
alarm and scattered in all directions.
Wo did not learn that any shots were fired
or exchanged. Two of the maskers were
raptured, but in the darkness prevailing es
caped. The persons are known, and their
capture, if they remain in the county, is only
a question of time. It is believed that the
parties who stole tho eighty dollars were
members of the last gang, and there is a
probability of the recover' of the money.
