Tho reception given by the Reform Chib
to Col. Will 8. Hays last night was a suc
cess. It wes largely attended and tho pro
gramme of exercises seemed to give satis
faction. No. 8 on the club slip was given out, Mr.
Mclvce directing aud Miss Emma Janu s at
the organ. A solo ''What a World' was
sang by Miss Pitcher with organ accom
paniment, and this was followed with quar
tette "Death is There" by Misses Pitcher
and Phill's Slid Messrs. Hacker nnd MeKce.
Little Wintie Dunning then gave the
audience "Father is a Drunkard and Mother
is Dead," in that stylo familiar to frequent
ers of tho club, and which never f.iils to
draw fortli applause. ,
Dr. Dunning introduced Col. Will S
Hays ami spoke of him as a gentleman who
hail dono move in aid of the tc r.peranee
cat so than any other man west of tho
TH Co'onel, although past the meridian
of life, still preserves some of tho traces of
a former ber.uty. Upon tho h'r.el of his
coat the left lapel ho wore what is known
in good society as a button-hole bouquet
figure ubove the medium height, slightly
bent with age, appareled according
to the latest decrees of fashion even to the
chaste and becoming spotless tie. His hair
nnd mustache presented a model of tonsori
al pericc.'on, every hair adjusted to its prop
er place and to a degree of nicety aud har
mony that must have inspired tho most in
different in such matters with rapture. The
large, soft eye of tho colonel beamed good.
naturedlyyet shrewdly upon his auditors,
and standing there, as he did, upon the
regulation Louisville foundation a very
largo but shapely foot he looked every inch
the man who writes tho people's ballads and
the river n-i.vs of the Courier-Journal. The
Co'onel delivered a unique address. It had
all the e'ements of a really great effort, aril
only missed being such by incongruity or
rather let us say, by lack of arrangements as
to details. There was pathos; there were
passages strong and eloquent; some humor
and agreatdealof wU;one ortwo anecdotes,
and, if our memory serves us, a personal
reminiscerce. Separately considered, that
is apart from the effort as a whole, these
features were all good. But where the
Co'onel seems to miss it is in connecting
these links. They did not hitch prop
erly; and aiter be'ng once got to
gether there was apparent a painful ten
dency of each separate link to make it
as uncomfortable for its companion as
possib'e, as if it wanted to break away and
soar (if we may use such an expression
about links) to a more congenial atmos
phere. Then there are the gestures of the
o.-ntor. No man upon tho platform can lc
more graceful, or jtossesses in a larger de
gree the eloquence that comes from a judi-
c'ous use of the limbs and head. But wh'lc
;'C Colored is thus blessed by nature he
seems to have the misfortune to inject his
gestures iuto the wrong place, or else fail to
use them at all. This is productive of
awkwardness always, creating merriment
at times, it is true, but always marring the
finest flights of tho Colonel. His
Eng'ish was a deep well, un
Jeliled in its way, ami its lack of polish
ami elegance was doubtless a part of tho
peaker's p'an to give terseness and vigor to
his mode of expression. But where shall
we look to find the diamond without blem
ish; the newspaper man without fault? We
candidly answer that we don't 'know;
and if Col. Hays did not came up
in every instance to tho expect. io is
formed of him, it must be attributed rather
to the excited fancy ot those poor mo-tV.s
who have only leen permitted to admire
hiin at a distance than to any lack on the
Colonel's part to fill the full measure of an
orator, a singer and an editor.
Wc regret that our space forbids the pub-
licatioa of even a synopsis of his remarks,
but those who had tho good fortune to
hear him have doubtless treasured each
thought as it fell from his lips in their heart

JIM SMITH HOIIS
MVKl'.S OF $ 13
AND LOCKED IT,
Jim Smith is a resident of Roekport, Ind
ami is a man, wo should judge, aboti
thirty-five years of ago. Aliout a year ago,
Jumes found work in his locality getting
scarce and he concluded to go to New Or
leans and see if ho could not better his lot
there. On arriving (hero ho found work
about as seareo as anywhere else, and after
a stay of several weeks started north again
and finally brought up iu this city, about
three months ago. Ho had had some ex
perienee as n pa'nter, ami on application to
B. F. Blake was given a job, Ho remains
in Mr. Blake's employ about two months,
wiien tntit gentleman one day
informed him that ho had no further uso
lor him, and after loitering about town
torn week, he was again on the world
without money or friends. In this condi
turn Charley Mycin, the young man who
keeps the dry goods and notion store near
the corner of Ninth street ou Commercial
avenue, found him ami being a Christian
w ho does by others as he wishes to be doin
ly, took linn into his store as a clerk. This
wasalMiut two weeks ago, Jim went to
bed early and got up early, and work'ng
willingly and honestly, Charley thought
he had found a bonanza. Last Saturday
night, after shutting up tho store, Charles
counted out the proceeds of the day's labor
anil put it away in his safe, along with
other money, amounting to alwut $175,nnd
went iiomc to ret his weary limbs. Tho
next morning ho returned to his
storo to find a panel of the
door, between tho room Jim occupied ami
the storo room cut out, ami Jim, the safe and
various other bttlc artic'es missing. Sheriff
Saup was notified of the roboerv,
and he nt onre began a search for the un
grateful thief. The safe was found by t
Imy near the slaughter house on the Missis-
slppi levee, who picked it up ami brought
'c home it weighs about two pounds nnd a
half with the door knocked off. Smith
was arrested near Mound City yesterday
morning, and brought to this city and
lodged in the county jail.

A special meeting of the Board of Health
was held at the Council Chamber yesterday

of our citizens from infectious and contag
ious diseases, which arc now breeding in the

There was a full attendance of the mem
bers present. It was recommended that the
mayor appoint a health officer, whost ntten-
tioi should at once bo turned to the thor

from top to bottom, and that the mayor be
requested to issue a proc'nmation, notifying
nil persons within the corporate limits to
"clean up," or suffer under the severest pen
alty the law inflicts.
Directions were given that until such
time as the mayor shall have issued his pro-
lamntion establishing regular quarantine,
tie sen-ices of a competent physician should
be procured, whoso duty it shall to
board, or cause to be boarded, all steam
lxats from tho south, for the pur.ose of as
certaining whether or not thev have infec
tious diseases on lioard. If a boat is found
to have sickness of a contagious character
onboard, she will not be permitted to land.

Company's affairs, to inquire by telegraph
and notify the mayor of the passage of all
