Elder shores thinking that n bad side
walk is better than no sidewalk at all,
caused the arrest of Curley Mike, yesterday,
for driving his dray on the pretence of a
sidewalk, on the out skirts. The case has
not been heard.
We hear it stated that an up-town me
chanic, whose mind and studies run much
in the legal groove, will be a candidate fur
City Attorney. It is not essential, we
believe, that the incumbent of the oflice

We regret to be called upon to chroni
cle the death of Dr. Marean's infant child,
Florence, who died about midnight, Wed
nesday night. The little creature had suf
fered long and severely, nnd although its
loss is keenly felt und deeply mourned by
the father and mother, death to the little
thing was no doubt a welcomed deliverer.
The St. Patrick's Benevolent society
of this city, is arranging for a grand Easter
Monday ball, (April 14th) which will be
held on the evening of that day in the hall
of the Hibernian engine house. The gen
tlemen to whom tho management has been
confided will perform their part well und
faithfully, and furnish to our people an
occasion for healthful and harmless rec
reation nnd pastime. The managers are
Messrs. Madden, Fitzgerald, Dezonia,
Power and llogan.
Johnny Strauhal, son ot John W.
Strauhal, was married, in Decutur, a few
days ago, to a young lady named Lilla Dot-
Bon. Johnny has for some time tilled the
position of head salesman in the New York
store, in Decatur, and Miss Dotson is said
to be an 'accomplished daughter of one the
first families of tho city. The wedding
was one of tna grandest affairs of the kind
ever held in Decatur, and formed the sub
ject of a lengthy special dispatch to the St.
Louis and Chicago papers.
We had the pleasure of taking by the
hand, yesterduy, our old friend F. J. Wild-
man, eighteen years ago an uttache of the
Defiance theater, of this city, but now the
proprietor or the head man of the New
York Comedy company. The intervening
years seem to have touched hiin lightly, as
he possesses all the life and buoyancy of
young manhood, Ho has it first-class com
pany one that wins words of commenda
tion wherever it goes, nnd one that will
make its appcaranco in Cairo next Thurs
day evening. Meanwhile we shall have
occusion to speak of it frequently.
At a late hour Tuesday night the in-
mutes of the Fall's hotel, on Eighteenth
street, were startled by the clatter of a show
cr of brick bats, hurled against the house,
by a number of persons, for whoso names
a diligent inquiry has since then been insti
tuted. The only inmates of the house are
two females and two or thi"e men, and why
this attack should have been made upon it
is an enigma with which none of them feel
themselves competent to deal. It is con
jectured, however, that the culprits are the
bad boys of the neighorhood who had no
particular object in view aside from what
they may denominate "fun;" but what is
better described by the term "young ruffian
Mr. Oberly and family arrived in
Springfield at noon yesterday. Having
leased his property hero (except the resi
dent portion) nnd realizing that the do
mitmls of his olUce would keep him nwny
from Cairo, almost constantly during the
spring and aummcr the greater portion of
the while in Springfield -he provided tem
porary quarters for U family in the last
mimed city, becuuso it wn. a movement in
the direction of economy, and because it
would enable l.im to be 'at home" the
greater portion of his time, Instead of at
long intervals, as was the case during tho
past year or two, He rente! furnished
quarters there, so that he can hnvo when it
may please him to do so, and left furnished
quarters here, that ho muy return when he
pleases. lis family expect to nturn in tho
fall, or, perhaps sooner.
Two-thirds of the bad colds, half tho
sore throats und a largo per cent of the
diptheria nniong the young girli of Cairo
tire chargeable to rope jumping. Contests
to deterniiue who can jump tho longest or
oftenest without tripping, ensue wherever
ns many us two or three meet together, und
the end is violent exercise that brings per
spiration nnd exhaustion, even during the
prevalence of cold weather. Tho contes
tants then stand around in the cool air or in
a draught, cool off suddenly, and a bud
cold, possibly diptheria, follows us a conse
quence. Jumping-ropes furnish continual
amusement to the little ones, we know, but
they are responsible for sickness and sus
pense in half the families of the city.
Our correspondent "Mrs. Snobs," does
not ftbandou her first conclusions respecting
tho manner of the death of the woman
who was found dead in a wheat field, near
Thebes; but supports them quite spiritedly.
We should much prefer to accept Mrs.
Snobs' version of the matter, as it shields
our people, (who arc ns liberal und gener
ous hearted us liny in tho world; from tho
reproach of permitting a woman to die of
exposure and starvation in a land of plenty.
The jury's verdict wus doubtless warranted
by the facts that were placed in its posses
sion; but it seems safe to infer that our cor
respondent was in possession ot facts that
did not reach the jury. And now, both sides
having "vindicated" themselves, we are
entirely willing to let the subject drop.
A young gentlemen made a social call
n few evenings ago. The young ladies of
the house had been tacking down some
rugget and were not in full evening dress,
but were glad to see him anyhow. Would
he take a seat? Certainly he would: he'd
sit down on tho sola a minute. But he
lied! lie didn't sit there a minute; but
bounced up with a suddenness, and brushed
his coat tails with a vigor that amazed the
young ladies, until one of them bethought
herself, and exclaimed: "My goodness,
Anna Bella Amurinthu! If I didn' put my
tacks down there and forgot 'cm, I wish I
may never 1'' The young man being thus as
sured that it was not n preconcerted scheme
to nail his c.wt-tuils to his trousers, "smole
a sickly sniilo'' at the mihi;p; but failed to
make himself agreeable -not, however, be
cause he didn't have the "tuck" to do it.
Countrymen who visit the city with
their teams certainly do not understand the
perils and danger they invite, by driving
through the yard and across the innumera
ble tracks, trains and locomotives, to reach
the street or mills abovo or below, accord
ing to the point of entrance. Tho space
reaching to the river above Fourteenth
street, is devoted to the exclusive use of the
Illinois Central Railroad company, and out
siders who enter upon it with teams not
only incur great risk, but are trespassers.
Yesterday a countryman entered the yard
from Fourteenth street, nnd drove his team
up to Eighteenth, and seemed much put
out because the blamed cars und engines
were in the way so he couldn't reach tho
mills at Twentieth. He must have seen
the wreck of a wagon or two on his route ;
but, be that as it may, he was in great per
i I, and if he repeats that experiment often
he'll be apt to see the wreck of his own
wagon, if he's fortunate enough to escape
wrecking himself. It is an inexcusable
piece of stupidity in anybody to defy such
We have inspected the drawings of
Prof. Gustav Burner's plan to arrest the
caving of river banks. It consists of what
might be called an immense concave sur
face of planks or iron, quudrilluteral in
shape, backed up by heavy timber support
ers. This is closely adjusted to the bank
and extends out into the current ut a proper
inclination down stream to throw the cur
rent from the shore. Below this are strong
timber sections, which joined together fence
the return or counter current from cutting
in below. The Professor knows that the
devices will prove effective, and knows that
they will not cost much more than ten per
cent, of the amount that is usually involved
in the construction of the stone
or timber spiles or break-waters usually
employed for a like purpose. He hasn't
capital ut his commuad to demonstrate the
utility of his invention; but declares that
it is so cheap that Cain might avail itself
of its use, without feeling the expense. He
has, we hear, caveated, his "current con
troller" or whatever he calls, nnd expects
to see the day when, through its use, the
eccentric r'atluT of Waters will be ns com
pletely under tie control of the cities and
towns along its banks, us a steamboat is
under the control of the pilot.
While our reporter wis standing near
the corner of Eighth and Commercial, yes
terday forenoon, wondering where the facts
upon which to build his next local would
develop themselves, ho noticed the horse
attached to Ambrose Pyatt's delivery wagon
lake on n tremendous scare. The animal
dashed down Commercial a shoirt distance,
where Hinkle & Thistlcwood'B two horse
team, loaded with boards, stood at right
angles with the street, nnd starting that
team nt a maddening run down the street,
scattering the bourds as it went, the pyatt
nnimal wheeled nround, nud dashed down
Eighth street to Wasliingto.i, scitterlng ami

turning down Washington it continued

having done about nil the mischief it could
do, it came to its senses. Muking
a lively racket. Hinkle and This
tlcwood'B two horses dashed down
Commercial, picking up a mule and a dray
to uconipimy them, und striking Mr. L. II.
Myer's delivery wagon, cut off one of the
wheels, with "dispatch" if not with neat
ness. Myer's horso being thus put in a no
tion to "get out of that," all four ol tho
teams were going nt once, "like mad.''
Hinkle and Thistiewood's turned np Sixth
toward the wharf; but striking un obstruc
tion, wero whirled into tho Until road strip
where they sensibly concluded to call a
halt. Myer's animal got along quite
lively with his three-wheeled turn-out, un
til he struck u post 011 the corner of Sixth
and Commercial and taking the jolt as a
hint to stop, he did stop. The mule dashed
down Commercial until lie passed beyond
hearing of the clatter und uproar, and
stopped of his own accord. And thus,
without moving from his trucks did the
reporter gather the frame work of w hat
will pass as a very readable "local."
About half-past one o'clock, yesterday
afternoon, u colored woman was seen run
ning down Commercial avenue, having
started from Twenty-eighth street, scream
ing at the top ot her voice that a man was
murdering u woman. Constable Gladney
being in that vicinity learned that a fight
was going on in a Twenty-eighth street she
bang kuown as "the hole-in-the-wall," and
starting in that direction saw a negro man
leave the house and run toward the Ohio
levee. Gladney1 made pursuit, but being
unable to overhaul the fugitive,
turned around ami walked off us if he hud
abandoned the chase. The fugitive observ
ing this, made sundry tantalizing demon
strations, which he kept up as long as
Gladney was in sight, and then he sat down
on the railroad. Gladney took u round
about way, and, in less than ten minutes,
and without being observed, laid his hand
on the defiant fellow's shoulders. Here was
a surprise; but the captive squared for a
fight, pranced around, and put on
a vast amount of fistic style, until
Gladney drew his revolver, when
he became as docile us a kitten. The mo
ment that Gladney put his revolver out of
sight, however, the fellow renewed his ban
tering demonstrations. Gladney finally be
coming t i rod of such nonsense, caught the
gyrating customer by the coat collar and
gave him a fling that resulted in two or
three sumersuults down the embankment.
After all this uianoevoring it finally occur
red to Gladney that all lie could swear
against he fellow was the fact that he saw
him "running," and as that was not, in it
self, a criminal proceeding, he turned him
We are really surprised to think that a
gentleman possessed of such extensive
kuowledge as Judge Marchildor., should
suppose that a woman would or could starve
to death in a civilized community where
peace and plenty abounds. Tho idea is pre
posterous. We congratulate ourselves that
we are not living among barbarians; but
among people who are, at least sympathetic
and charitable anough to supply the hun
gry, with sufficient food to prevent them
"starving to death." We wero not aware
that starvation would dispatch life so sud
denly; but imagined that one starving to
death would not apparently (as two of the
jurors stated to us) fall lifeless without a
struggle; but would after having become
too much exhausted to wnlk, make an at
temptet to crawl. The Judge stated in his
communication to The Bulletin that Mn.
Murry (the woman found dead in Esq.
Thompson's wheat field) wus thinly clad
without shawl und etc. We do not contra
dict his statement in regard as to how she
was clothed when found ; but we saw her pre -viously,
and she had a woolen showl around
her, and had the appearance of being com
fortably clothed. She left a bundle of
clothes at Mr. T. A. Brown's, containing at
least two chuuges of uuder wear, two dresses
a tolerably good woolen shawl, some stock
ings, and other things. Admitting that
she was poorly clothed, it was her own
fault. The idea of basing evidence of star
vation upon finding walnuts on her person
has no weight, as superstitous people do
that for a charm. As to the mistake in tho
name, that is a minor point. We heard the
keeper of the poor faun call her "Brew-
ster;" but he says that he merely miscalled
the name. Subsequently wo heard her
called "Morrison." The Judge is nt liberty
to nnnlv uny annellation he deems nronev.
tor we know nothing ubfut her true nam .
