Visitors to the county jail can now
witness a spectacle never before seen in
Alexander county, or, perhaps, in any other
county in Illinois. They cun see four per
sons, resting under the charge of murder,

gallows, as the crimes ascribed to them,

Among other allegations, which it Is
said can be proven is one to the effect that
a white man, depositing his vote in the
Fifth ward, immediately came down to the
Fourth ward, and voted again, aud then
passed to the Third ward and voted a third
time, all within the hour previous to the
closing of the polls. The individual who is
charged with this repeating ia said to have
fled the city.
The last "reception" of the season wits

Ernest Pcttit's friends and supporters
held quite a jollification, Wednesday night,
over that gentleman's election to Alder-
manic honors. The house was illuminated,
a bonfire was built in the street, speeches
were made, cigars were passed uround, and
quite a hurrah created. It was a victory
achieved by much hard work, and the Imivs
are entirely excusable for jubilating over it.
They beat a strong man otherwise there
would have been no glory in it.
To the crimiual and most reprehensi
ble practice of carrying concealed weapons
may be charged the shooting scrape of

I,um Neal's pistol been lying in his trunk,
instead of being concealed about his person,
Walt Harper would not now be lying dead

-The special election in the 4th ward,
to be held on the 6th proximo, will excite
general interest, although it involves noth
ing of more consequence than the election
f a single alderman. But with that single
alderman will rest the power to control the
hole license question, in which the people
affect a profound concern. The contest
ill be inaugurated before the close of the
present week. One of the candidates at

Civil engineer Hely, of the Illinois

Mr. Robert Castles, freight agent of

train, yesterday morning, on a business trip
to ' Evansrillc a rill age lonted

distance below the mouth of Green river,
eight miles above Hendersou aud aWtt

One of our Justices complains (and
what is the experience of one is doubtless
the experience of all) that citizens ol the
place, male and female, impelled by anger
or reseutmeut wear out warrants, take the
writs, avowedly to put them in the hands
of an officer to serve, and then, cooling off
or relenting, let the matter drop. Mean
while the Justice dockets the suit, and fixes
a time for the hearing of the triul, possibly
disturbing his programme of business in
doing so. This practice should be stopped ;
and the way to stop it is for the Justice to
hold the writ in his own possession until he
can deliver it himself.

Some months ago Menroc Purcelt re
turned to Cairo from the Anna Insane asy

tions of restored reason. Partaking of the
election excitement his balance was slight

sentful and abusive upon the slightest pre
text. He was abroad Tuesday, and engag
ing in an nltercation with a man who did
not know him, a light ensued and
Monroe was beaten. Since then
he has been completely de
deranged. . Yesterday he was Iwgujled into
the court house, by the pretext that a trial
was in progress In which he was interested;
but all attempts to get him down stairs were
unavailing. To curry him down and confine
him in a cell required the strength of four
strong men. Tlte pour fellow is now con
fined, and months may elapse before Ins
mental disturbance is again quieted and his
reason restored. He Is about twenty-five
years ot age. The cause of his Insanity
we have not learned.

What kind of horrors are thoso tho poo
ple of the Kentucky "Purchaso" arc fleeing
from? They must bo maddening indeed-else
the numerous suicides there arc unaccounta
ble. Scarcely a week goes by without leaving
the mempry of a self-murder. The Paducah
News, received yesterday, tells how Hon.
Mat McKinney, of Trigg county, put a pe
riod to his earthly existence by swallowing
a deadly dose of laudanum. A genial, so
ciable gentleman a lawyer by profession,
and at one time a member of the Kentucky
legislaturehis friends were as numerous
as his acquaintances. To the world he
seemed a happy man; but in his own mind
there seems to have been a hell from wjiich
he Bought refuge in 1lie realm we know
nought of. He whs financially embarrassed,
it is said. If this be true, great and good
as he may have been otherwise, he acted
the part of a moral coward in placing a
load, too heavy for his own shoulders, on
the weaker shoulders of his wife and chil
dren. For several days past a woman of
rather a slouchy appearance, probably forty
five years of age. has been seen in all parts
of the city, aud very frequently dodging
hither and yon among the cars in the vicin
ity of the round house. She says she is in
scorch of her husband, who is a "wild
youug feller" who ran away from her bed
and board without any cause or provocation
of any kind whatever. She claims to be
the owner of a small farm in Pulaski
county; that "its a gospel truth" that a
year or two ago that young feller of a hus
band ol hers fell in love with her pedal ex
tremities, only one of which he had seeu,
and that nfterwnrds he worried her nearly
to death to marry him ; that she did marry
him, and had him on hand until a few days
ago, when he ran away why he went
or w hither he is gone she doesn't know; but
will never be happy until she finds him.
If the "young feller" of a husband has
ordinarily well cultivated tastes, anybody
after seeing the "bride of a year," can de
cide wnr he left, and why he will be likely
leave again if she succeeds in capturing
him. As a coarse, Uncouth, Ul-trraineJ, re
pulsive hociinen of feminine humanity,
this creature is probably matchless. We
heartily congratulate the "young feller" of
a husband, on the score of his escape; and
although not much mven lo the habit of
hiding fugitives, he can always have a free
pass over every foot of the "under-ground
railway" utder our control.
About 10 o'clock yesterday, officer Ho
gan wus seen hurrying his horse in the di
rection of the stone depot, and cur reporter
at once concluded that the apparent haste
betokened something worth looking after.
In this conclusion he was not at fault, for,
repairing to the mammoth steamer James
Howard, then lying at the Illinois Central
car hoist, he learned that a negro deck hand
had just been shot by a fellow deck hand,
and mortally wounded. The tacts as elic
ited are, substantially, aa follows: While
the Howard was steaming along in front of
the city a negro man named Lum Ncal was
trying to move a barrel, sn;l being unable
to handle the barrel without help, called
upon Walter Harper, also a negro, to "lend
liiui a hand." Harper refused; but with
out betraying any ill humor, merely remark
ing that he could get steady employment
at "thank ye" work the whole year round,
but he didn't sec any money in it. To this
J.uiif rojoiued, with some as)crity, that
Harper was a lazy negro, and that if he got
nothing but what he earned, it would be
nothing from nobody. Harper still refusing
to "lend a hand," Lum told him he'd give
him a whipping before he reached New
Orleans. Harper questioned, even denied,
Lutn's ability to whip him, and turning on
his heel stalled aft. Calling to him, Lum
remarked : "It's a good thing you left, as
I am getting in a good hntnor to give you
the licking right here anil now." A Ger
man named Charley Smith was a listener
to the wordy passage, and viewed it more
in the light of jocular bantering than angry
controversy, and was, therefore, utterly as
tounded at the results that followed. Over
hearing hum's threat lo lick him right
then and there, Hitrer turned around, and
with both hands in his pockets, walked to
ward the spot where Lum was engaged, re
pouting that there was not strength enough
in Luui's breeches to give him the threat
ened drubbing. To the utter amazement
of all who heard the conversation, Lum
whipped a pistol from his bosom, and aim
ing ut Harper's body, tired. The
ball perforated Harper's abdomen,
nnd cutting through the intestines,
inflicted a mortal injury, Harper
fell upon the deck of the boat, thus creating
the impression that ho had been killed out
right. At that instant the Howard struck
the Illinois Central wharf-boat, Lum jumped
ashore and hurrying up the wharf, soon dis
appeared over the levee. As is usual in
such cases, the parties who witnessed the
shooting, did not bring themselves to a
comprehension of tho demands of the ces
sion until the culprit had made his way
ashore, and beyond tho rsngo of pistol
hot. Officer Hogan, gaining the particu
lars f the ail'sir and a description of the
fugitive, and joined by officer Sheehan,
John Rose and a negro man named John
.Richardsoiij who lives on Commercial ave
nue opposite the foot ot Thirteenth street,
and who had also obtained a description of
Keal, all four started in pursuit. After
considerable search they got tho proper
bearings, and before the lapso of an hour
had bagged their game. Out in the vicin
ity of the old pest houso Richardson
espied what ho correctly concluded were
the fugitive's trucks, and following them
up, fouud the object of the pursuit in the
pest houso nrivv. With a courajre that
may have lacked something in point of dis
cretion, he walked directly up to Neal, who
was known to bo armed, and placing his
hand upon hhn, told him he was his prisoner.
Neal made a motion, us if ho intended to
draw; but was told by Richardson (who al
though entirely unarmed, acted as if he
were loaded down with weapons) that if he
put his hand in his pocket he'd blow his
brains out. This threat, and the presence
of John Hose, who was w ith Richardson,
and ot Hogan, who hud now come up, had
a quieting effect upon tho fellow, and he
exercised a discretion that served him a
letter purpose than all the valor he could
haTe displayed. The prisoner was then es
corted to the county jail going along
quietly, sensibly concluding that he was
"ia for it." The details relating to the pur
suit and the arrest were furnished to us by
Richardson, who asks and deserves credit
for- on act of undeniable bravery.
The wounded man was placed in a spring
wagon, and conveyed to the hospital. He
was still alive when we heard from him,
yesterday evening, but the wound is re
garded as mortal, and his death is merely
a matter of time. Preparations were on
foot in the afternoon t take the w ounded
man's ante-mortem statement ot the affair;

My very dear Mr. Editor:

now, did you? Of course you will let me

Davis; such a good-looking, gentlemanly
man as you are (hpe my husband won't

No, Mr. Davis, "Practical" did not know

as citizens; aud she is rather glad she did
not; it is so refreshing to be able tw learn
