The thunder storm of Wednesday
morning was quite general. The lightning
was severe and almost continuous in the
neighborhood of I'aducah. It struck a ne
gro man, on a raft of logs, in the mouth of
Tennessee river, ami killed him instantly.
A few moments later, and in the same vi
cinity, a sheet flew from the lightning rod
of a building, and plugged u hog so "that
it did die."

It comes to us very directly from Union
county that "Matt J. lnscore is looming up
as a candidate for Circuit Judge, and that,

who communicates this information to us,
has excellent opportunities for informing

Mr. Fiancis Vincent has commenced

in the army. He has suffered at intervals,
quite severely. Yesterday, about noon, he
fell in a violent convulsion of several min
utes duration. His contortions and cavort
ings were terrible to witness, and it re
quired the united strength of two strong
colored men to hold In'ni. The tit left him
in a state of comnlcte exhaustion, and
what the poor fellow's future sufferings may
be, is past conjecture,
A young man riding one mule and lead
ing another came into the cily, yesterday,
and excited the attention of the police. He
bad evidently been making good speed,
both mules showed saddle marks and were
much travel-worn. The mules were rec
ognized us hal ing belonged to a Mr. Bags
liy, of Pulaski county ; and the party in
charge had tried to effect a crossing of the
Mississippi at the upperlVrry, apparently to
avoid the cily. These facts aroused grave
suspicions, which soon became intensified
somewhat bv the assurance of somebiuiv
that the mules Were undoubtedly the plop- j
erty of of Mr. Bagsby. Had it not oecuivd
to the detective that mules an sometimes
bought as well as stolen, the individual in
charge would no doubt have been detained
as a mule thief. Officer Olmsted happened
to know that Bagsby had sold his mules,
and communicated this information to the
individual who was "working up" the case,
and the "scent" was abandoned.
The fierce storm prevented a general
turn out to witness the Wildman Comedy
company in the absorbingly interesting
drama of Jane Eyre, last night; but those
who did attend were abundantly repaid for
bri'ving the elements. The Wildnni'i com
pany is without doubt, one of the best that
ever visited our city. Mr. Wildman is an
actor of more than twenty years
standing and has 11 well de
served reputation as a careful student and
an easy, natural reader and delineator. Ev
erything the company puis upon the stage
is smoothly and admirably presented, and
never marred by awkward hitchesor baulks.
To-night will he presented, as a farewell
offering to the people of Cairo, Heade's
exquisite dramatization of Tennyson's
poem of Dura, entitled "Driven fioin

list of domestic dramas it stands unsur

Why Is it that, for repairing tho floors of

There was a great commotion near the
corner of Thirteenth and Poplar, about 7
o'clock yesterday evening, and extending
inquiries as to the wherefores, we were
placed in poses-ion i f the following story.
A colored woman named Frances Smith
entered her house and found it well tilled
with negro boys, who, with lo r daughter
Emma a girl Hi or 1 years of age, were
"carrying on dreadful." Tho mother or
dered the girl to drive the hoys out; but in
stead of obeyiugshe turned upon her mother
most shamefully. The girl's language w us
so profane and obscene that even the li-ten-ing
neighbors were shocked and appall
ed. The mother said but little in
reply, but gathering the undittiful
daughter in her arms, slammed her down
on the floor, tied her, and gave her a good,
sound belting. While the blows were de
scending, she "took back" the foul epithets
she had applied to her mother and the
neighbors (for the girl had giveu her pro
fanity a wide range) and in the most pite
ous manner, begged everybody's pardon
and solemnly promised to be a good girl.
I'pon this the mother relented, untied Miss
Emma, and looked for an improved code of
morals. But the depraved girl
no sooner realized that she
had the free use of her limbs, than she
dashed at her mother's "good clothes," and
tore them into shreds, sailed into the "old
girl" herself, and made the neigh
borhood fairly howl with the vilest lan
guage ever syllabled anywhere. It was at
this juncture that Chief Arter came around
ami taking the irate Emma in charge, con
veyed herto the calaboose, sh" protesting all
the while that she didn't can; a - for any
of a of a whitciuan that ev-r lived, and
especially didn't she care for the one whohad
her in charge. The place lor Miss Emma
! is under the n 'id discipline of a reform
- Mr. Field, who lives near Fulton, Ken
tucky, had iu his employ until recently, a
large lusty negro man, about thirty years
of age. Last Sunday a week ago Mrs.
Field sent her little twelve year old girl to
the stable for eggs. . When the little
creature h id succeeded in reaching the lofi,
the negro man followed her and outraged
her person, lb- then threatened the child
with a most terrible death if she told on
him, and influenced by these threats the
child kept the dreadful secret until the
injuries received by her became unendur
able, and told the story for her. She then
named the negro man as her ravisher. The
father and brother being near at hand and,
the latter arming himself with a shot
gun, both started in pursuit. They had
leached a point 11 hundred feet distant
from where the black monster was
at work, when he, suspecting the
tint h, attempted to escape. The brother
tiled upon him ami so disabled him
that he was easily captured, lie was then
conveyed to a neighbor's house for safe
keeping; but the news of the outrage soon
got alnoad ; and before bed-time a crowd
of fifty men had gathered determined to
wieak summary vengeance. The negro was
seized, hurried offinto the woods' where lit!
was swung up to the limb of a tree, and
his body fairly riddled with bullets. The
account of the affair given by the I'aducah
News, corroborates the foregoing state
ment, in so far as the lending particulars
art' concerned, and adds that the body was
afterwards taken down and sunk in the
Obion river. Mob violence is to be strongly
deprecated, as a general rule; hut in cases
like that just recited, no other kind ol law
seems to mete out the proper punishment.
Thu man. black or white, who ravishes a
child, deserves to die without the interven
tion of judge, jury or clergy.

lency of the white race is pronounced and
unquestionable; until the huts, hovels and
corn patches of the blacks give ;)Iace to
tho frame and brick bouses and grounds
and market gardens of the more thrifty
and enterprising whites. Many years ago
wo argued in the same way; but the loie
of event" ban changed our mind somewhat.
A largo per centum of the colored popula
tion of Cairo find employment on the
river, and the great bulk of the money
thus earned, is brought to Cairo and put in
circulation among our business men.
During the fall and w inter months, hun
dreds of the col ned men, women and child
ren go south, and working in the cotton
fields, bring bad their earnings, and
speedily put them in circulation. And
while it is true, that in some of the wards
of the city the colored voters are suffi
ciently numerous to elect one of their kind,
in case of any division among the white
element, yet every effort made by black
men to take advantage of oppor
tunities thus presented, has hern defeated
by the more considerate colored voters them
selves. Since this has been the case during
an interval of ten vears, we nuiv well argue
that the policy is not likely to undergo a
change. Negroes have tilled no S'ats in
our Council, nor in our Hoard of Education
nor have they filled any other office or place
to which a large element of the white race
did not assist to promote tln m. With a
population of .VVMI colored pepole, Judge
Bird is the only one of the lace who fills
an olliee for which there was any conten
tion, and he has filled the office so intelli
gently and conscientiously, that he can con
li.lently count upon a large white support
should l;e oiler himself for re-eletioji. It
is a fact and one that redounds to the
credit of the Cairo blacks, that, since they
represent but little property r.f their own,
they have not striven for positions that
would givo them any control over the prop
erty of others. We can s iv it to their dis
paragement that n any of them, and es
pecially the women, are lazy and shiftless.
They furnish uu undue jut cent, of our
criminals; but very fi-w paupers. They are
not given to dissipation; and if the State
would lift from our shoulders the burden
imposed in providing for the education of
their children and for the care of their
criminals, Cairo would have but little to
urge against the presence of her negro pop
ulation. If they fall to build line houses
themselves, tiny help put money in the
hands of those persons who do build them;
and quite a utiuilx r of them, within the
past few years, have provided themselves
with comfortable little homes, and are now
helping to pay the etra expense the pres
ence of the race here necessitates.
