Leaving New Orleans together 11 few days
ago, Cannon won the lend when thirty
miles out, and kept it all the way to

is a grand triumph for the

Ve call attention to the Christinas Fes

day evening for the Sunday School of the
Episcopal church a grand good time to be

The festival will commence at 7 :30 o'clock.
The public generally are invited.
There was fmito an accident on the
Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleuns railroad,
last Saturday. A freight train ran into a
pay car near Grand Junction, badly injur
ing the engines, smashing up the pity car,
and instantly killing Patrick Doyle, tho
freight engineer, and the porter of the pay
car, whoso name we did not learn. Mr.
Berl. tho paymaster, was badly stunned and
for a tiino was unconscious; but he soon re
covered, and it is thought he sustained no
Tub Bui.lktin asks the indulgence of
its friends for its failure to bestow upon tho
holiday re-unions that have been held, the
notices they deserve. X lengthy notice of
the Arab ball, w ith much other local mat
ter, was withdrawn from the hands of tho
printers at two o'clock this morning; other
wise, the issue of tho paper would have
been delayed. Frozen steam-pipes, and a
short force of help furnish a partial explan
ation for tho delinipiency for which we ask
the charity of indulgence.
One Edward Foster having imhilvdnf
the lighting tluid, made a violent assault up
on his friend Isaac Wilson, on Wednesday,
and gave Isaac divers and sundry severe
thumps. Isaac sued beforo 'Squire Robin
son, but after thinking tho matter over-
how that the w hisky and not Ed, Foster
hail given him his sore ribs, ho concluded
that, inasmuch as Foster had "punished"
the whisky, he'd let the matter drop. He
therefore failed to appear and prosecute his
suit; and Foster paying the cost, tho matter
was Ignored, without further ado about it.
Mollie Lewis and Fannie Walker, deni

bald. Unfortunately a peuce-niakor inter
fered, and separated them before either of
tli"iu had been sufficiently punished. As a
eunvqiif ncc it devolved upon Bird to finish
the piini'limcut by inflicting upon each a
flue of and the inseparable official condi
ments. Having bankrupted themselves by
the purchase of Christmas pea-nuts and taf

I the tdiible shock, the fun was tremendous,
and thu thoughtless boy htii'iieii off, iu p..r
oxysins of uncontrollable laughter. Anin
stance of this nature occurred ncurthu court
house, Christmas afternoon, which not only
scared tho littlo girl to tho very verge of
nervous convulsions; but for a time very
odiously impaired her hearing. In this
case, however, the boy didn't have his u-ual
"fun," for the father being near at hand put
a stern appearance upon the affair, that was
quite as gratifying to the spectators as it
was disagreeable to the thoughtless young
ster. The loud out-cries of wonvn, thu scuf
fling of men, and it considerable crowd of
spectators on Nineteenth street, near Pop
lar, Christmas afternoon, indicated tho oc
currence of something so far out of lino
wilhthe accustomed quiet of that locality,
that we felt called upon to extend inquiries,
etc. A negro man, whose name wo did not
learn, had just been a foul of one Mitchell
La Valla. Mitchell being under the influ
ence of Christmas egg-nog, made a very in
different resistance, and came out of the
fight with a badly bunged-up optic. Dur
ing the progress of the fight two colored
women became involved, and one of them
being knocked pedals over poll, seemed to
forget, before sho recovered her equilibri
um, that anything had happened. The
strange negro, ineanwhil?, had left the
scene of conflict, so that when officer Wilson
arrived on tho ground, La Valla was the
only olYcniler left, ami his offence consisted
more in his state of intoxication than in his
resistance of the assault made upon him by
the strange negro. Ii Valla was before
Bird, yesterday, and not being able to deny
the "soft impeachment" of Christinas mel
lowness, was fined two dollars and tho of
ficial inevitables, which he paid, with the
remark that if Christmas happened often,
he'd be kept in continual bankruptcy.

A negro river man, named Burrel Brooks,
developed himself, Christinas evening, into
the bloudiest nilnded desperado with which
our police huvo had toileul. About 0 o'clock
in thu morning quite a number of colored
men had collected at Scott's saloon, brooks
among the rest. One of the crowd having
a trade dollar stepped up to the counter and
asked William Rankins, the barkeeper, for
something to drink. Brooks imposed him
self upon the customer's generosity, and was
supplied with a drink also. The barkeeper
returned seventy cents change, remarking
that ten cents w.is the usual discount. The
negro to whom the charge belonged ex
pressed his satisfaction, when Brooks step
ped in and swore that "his partner'' should
not be inipos.'d upon ; that a dollar was a
dollar, und that R'inkins should give change
accordingly. Rankins intimated to Brooks
that his interfereiiea w is uncalled for, and
that it would be more agreeable all 'round
if he'd attend to his own business. With
no further or other aggravation than this,
Brooks drew his revolver and fired upon
Rankins, 'even reaching over the
counter and firing ut the barkeeper, who
after the first shot, sought to conceal him
self behind the glass drainer. Officer Hogan,
h"iiring the shot-;, and seeing negro men
tumbling over one another in tlnrir frantic
efforts to vacate the bar-room, immediately
repaired to tho scene of difficulty. By this
time Brooks had gained the opposite side of
the street. Hogan advanced toward him,
and when distant ubout twenty yards, com
manded him to halt. The desperate negro,
leveling his pistol at Hogan, and replying
"halt yourself, d n you!" commenced
firing. Hogan's pistol was in position so
quickly that the reports of both pieces were
almost simultaneous. Thu negro fired the
second shot, tho third and the fourth, in
quick succession, Hogan replying with
equal rapidity, When he had fired his
fourth shot, the negro turned and fled to
ward tho river, furnishing intimations by
his gait, that one or more of Hogan's shots
had taken effect. Hurrying down to the
whart und across tho wharf-boat, the
fugitive reached the boiler deck of tho
steamer City of Alton, when, turning upon
Hogan, who was closa behind him, he yell
ed out "don't you follow me. I've got one
more shot, und I'll kill you sure as God's in
heaven!" But Hogan was in the line of
duty, and would not have flinched had there
been a full platoon of Brooks', all bent upon
his destruction. Tha fleeing negro dashed
through the engine room, and squeezing
himself hither und thither through the tight
ly packed freight, reached what he suppos
ed to be a place of safety. By divesting
himself of his coat Hogan succeeded in
squeezing himself through the Pi or 14 inch
passages the negro had passed, and finally
reached a position from whence he could
cover the desperate devil with his revolver.
The negro had emptied the seven chambers
of his revolver, but us lie- had cartridges
about his person, it was supposed that upon
gaining his hiding-plnco ho had load
ed up in ord 'r to continue the
battle. Ilugaib thought, himself, that he
simply had choice of the alternatives, to
kill the negro or be killed by him. Re
was, therefore, not a little surprised when
the negro commenced begging that he
might not be shot any more. And thus, at
the end of an ordeal that required no small
amount of physical courage, Hogan secured
his man. He took his life in his hand, as
well when he advanced upon the blood
thirsty fiend in the street, as when through
dark, sinuous passages, he sought him out
on the deck of the Alton. It was nn exhi
bition of rare courage throughout, and it
affords us pleasure to thus publicly recog
Ta sum up the results, we find Rankins
shot through the lungs, dangerously, if not
mortally wounded; we find Brooks shot in
or near the hip joint and seriously wound
ed. One or more of Brooks' balls whistled
uncomfortably close to Hogan's ear; but
he sustained no injury.
That Brooks intended to kill Rankins
there can be no doubt. The trade dollar
affair was u mere pretext. There was (us is
often the case in our bloodiest rencounters)
it woman involved. Rankins, it is alleged,
had won Brooks' woman away from him,
about two years ago ; and the woman, re
ceiving better care and kinder treatment ut
the hands of Rankin, refused most per-
emptorially to return to Brooks or to coun
tenance his visits. Thu rest has been told.
