Six cars loaded with lumber and pier

Some five or six weeks ago one Pleas
Burton fell upon Josiah Smith, both par
ties then residing in the Fifth ward, and
cut him quite severely with a knife, and
then fled the country. Tho recent grand
jury found a true bill against Burton for an
assault with intent to kill. Sheriff Hodges
liearing that the fugitive was inCobden,
set out tor that point Wednesday evening,
and yesterday morning returned to Cairo,
bringing Bunon with him. Tho prisoner 1
is now in jail awaiting trial.
We are accused ot making a malicious
attack upon a hand car. Denying and re
senting the charge of malice, we hasten to
make the amende hoxokaulf.. Of tho
"velocipede hand-car" in use on the C. &
V., we spoke disparagingly, but among
the men of the C. & V., stalwart
champions were not wanting to "cross
blades with us;" and now we find our rapier
"hurtling in air." A gentleman who ought
to know, declares that, instead of being
cumbersome, the hand car weighs only 08
lbs.; that a ten-year old boy-power moves
it with case, and that it can lie run with
safety nt a speed of from fifteen to eighteen
miles an hour. And now, having set tho
hand-cur right, we ask for a withdrawal of
the imputation of "maliciousness."
The Argus asserts, with much positivc
ness, that The Bulletin, in giving returns
from the Supreme court district, overlook
ed Alexander county entirely. In this the
Argus innocently errs. From the scattering
returns in hand we estimated Green's ma
jority in Alexander couuty at 50 votes, and
so stated it; but all the returns from the
country precincts were not received at the
court house until yesterday evening. It is
uniformly the case that full returns from
every voting precinct in the State are made
public several days before the result in our
own county can be obtained. At a late hour
last night (three days after the close of the
polls) we were furnished with the official
figures of the county. As they must be
published in tabular form, we defer their
publication until to-morrow.
Not for the wealth of tho Ind, nor
all the diamonds of Brazil would we put
the great criminal lawyer, Justus Cunning
ham, wrong upon the record. His argu
ment of "intent" applied to the burglary
case of Nathan Perry, w hich nrgumcnt was
so potent that the jury acquitted Perry of
burglarious intent, and convicted him ot
larceny, only. In tho McKay-Kelly rob
bery case, he did not argue the absence of
intent. In this behalf the G, C. L. ad
dressed us the following note: "In the
McKay and George Kelly cause you will
find that you have misennccpted tho facts
in regard to intention of robbery. The in
tention was in regard to the burglary case
of Nathan Perry on yesterday, is what you
should have said, in all burglary, cases the
intention must follow at the time of enter
ing the building." Which, we assume, is
a principle worthy of incorporation in
cither Chitty or Blackstone,

The County Commissioners concluded
their labors yesterday morning. Aside
from tho allowance, of claims against the
county, nnd the selection ot a grand jury
for the September term of the

Catching the idea from the privincial
Cockneys, our Randolph county neighbors
will render their 4th of July celebration at
tractive nnd exciting by n sham battle, rep
resenting the fight on BrecJ's hill, better
known as the battle of Bunker Hill. In
this contest soldiers with muskets, dressed
in red coats representing the British, and in
colonial costume representing the Ameri
cans, will take part; but the battlo field
will not, as has been suggested, be made
gory with a solution of auuline. Another
attraction will be a parade, in masks and
costumes by the Tag-Muttons nnd Fantas
tics. Then there will be foot races, the
runners each carrying u fifty pound hog;
slow mule race, soda-cracker eating
matches; a laughing match, and so on.
Special trains will be run on Narrow-gauge,
and a big timo is reasonably anticipated.
If the weather is not of the parching order,
the Faber-drivcr of The Bulletin, will
"be there to see."
Hon. James C. Allen, a gentleman of
recognized ability, entered the Olncy
Democratic judicial convention, solemnly
pledged himselt that he would abide the
decision ot the convention and support its
nominees. His friends worked for him
with much zeal, but ho fell a few votes
short of the nomination. Tho convention
wus an open, fair and honorable one; but
Mr. Allen couldn't brook defeat. Mistaking
the temper of the Democracy, he went back
on his pledges, nnd organizing a non-partisan
convention at Flora he became its nom
inee. The result of the election shows
that Mr. Allen, great and influential as he
has been in the Democratic party, can
not safely defy its usages, and use it at will
for his own personal advancement. Ho wus
most disastrously and overwhelmingly de
feated by tho regular nominees, receiving
in some of the counties of the circuit, less
than one hundred votes. Let other Demo-
crats protit by bis experience. As lor
James ('. Allen it will require years of good
conduct to atone for tho part perfidy that
marked his course in the late judicial con
test. The citizens of Sparta, in 1'andoiph
county, held a meeting, yesterday, to de
termine if Sparta could raise the bonus that
will determine the locution ot the machine
und repair shops of the Cairo and St. Louis
railroad. Mr. Johnson, general manager
jf the road was present, but what offers he
made or what conditions he imposed, we
have not learned. While it is true that
Cairo's investments in industrial establish
ments have not been of a character to en
courage further expenditures of money in
in the same direction, still if the machine
shops of the Narrow-gauge are worth any
thing to Sparta or any other locality, they
are worth quite us much to Cairo. It
might he well, therefore, for the Mayor, or
the Executive comniitte of the Taxpayers'
association to confer with Mr. Johns ni, as
certain what be wants, learn the extent ot
the establishment he thus puts up to the
highest bidder, the number of hmuls lie
proposes to employ, the probable imiount
of the monthly pay roll, und such other
facts as will enable our people to form nn
intelligent estimate of the value of tho
works, when contemplated from the piano of
dollars und cents. If thu works are worth
more than the price asked for thein.ii' there
is a "bargain" in them, Cairo might to have
them. If not, let Sparta take Yrn.

ON TRIAL FOR HIS LIFE.
THE PEOPLE VS. THOMAS 11088, FOB, THE
MUUDEn OF CHARLES JOHNSON THE
FACTS AS PRESENTED TO THE JURY.
After exhausting the regular panel and
calling in twenty-flvo or thirty talesmen,
tho jury in tho caso of tho Pconlo v.
Thomas Ross, colored, was finally cmpan-
neiicu, yesterday, about nooa. Tho attor
neys for tho State and the accused addressed
the jury preliminarily, and then proceeded
to tho examination of witnesses.
Tho first witness called wus Dr. Maxey:
My nnmn is V C. Maxey; live in Hodges'
Park; was not acquainted with Chns John
son ; was called on a Sunday in March; I
lived about two and a halt miles from
where Johnson was; ho was nt Long's
house; ho was lying down on tho floor; I
tried to 'find the ball; there was considera
ble hemorrhage und waste of blood ; after
cutting through his clothing I found that
there was some five or six buckshot that
had entered the "ecronium" region, on the
back of the shoulder; three shot struck the
point ot tho shoulder and glanced inwardly
ono struck the scapula and passed outward
ly ; the fifth struck above the scapula and
ranged downwardly and inwardly. There
seemed to be sufficient vitality, but he whs
in a racking pain: there were fivo shots in
tho shoulder; six or seven duck shot struck
tho left sldo of his face; I got there about
12 o'clock; I had seen Ross before tho
trouble; I had met him when I went to see
Johnson on returning home on tho next
morning. Ross hailed me and asked if the
man was badly hurt; told him he was and
asked him what lie put such a big loud in
the gun for, and he said he did it to hurt
him, he said Johnson was following him
around and said he left the shop to avoid
him. This occurred in the evening or the
next morning after the shooting, I am not
Cross examined. ."The fatal shot was
above tho scapula and ranging down; tho
tho bird shot in his face were fired at a
range of 43 degrees; there were 5 or G
large shots in the back; the lowest shot
wasjust above the scapular bone."
Nathan Johnson: "Name is Nathan
Johnson; live in Pulaski county; don't
know where Peter Ware lived ; Johnson
was brought to my house about two months
ago; it wus in February about
dark; don't know who brought
him there; we carried him
in the house and laid him on the bed; he
died there; we brought him there Thurs
day; when I went back I found him dead;
I found 10 wounds on him; most of them
were in his side; he told me he could not
live unless he got the Dr; he said "I can't
Cross examination unimportant.
Almurion Worthington. Live at San
dusky; know Johnsoi; saw linn after he
was shot on Sunday morning; helped the
Dr. take Johnson's clothing off; most of the
large shot were in the shoulder; the Dr. ex
tracted one shot; I went to Ware's house
on that day, but did not find any blood; it
was 12 steps from tho door where the man
was lying; on the west side; there was no
obstruction between the house nnd where
Johnson fell; he fell nearly directly in front
of tho door of the house; he had a brush
fence around his house; the house was .100
yards from the big road; I helped take
Johnson into Ware's house.
Geo. Long. Live !$ miles above Hodges
Park; live 150 or 200 yards south of Peter
Ware's house; saw Johnson at my house;
he was shot through the left shoulder and
left side of face; Johnson was taken from
my house to Peter Ware's house; in the
evening I went to the place where he was
said to have fallen 10 steps from the house;
saw no tracks but saw signs ot blood; it
was about 12 o'clock when we took John
son to Ware's; it was nfter Doc. had got
through, or about 3 o'clock when I exam
ined the ground.
Peter Ware (prosecuting witness). I live
in Alexander county; now live in Cairo;
then lived between Unity und Sandusky,
last April; live next to Geo. Long about
200 yards north of Long's house; knew
Johnson und Ross; knew Johnson; saw him
4th time; knew Ross nbout one month
Ross wns stopping with .me;
he had been there about two
weeks before the accident; it was about
11 :.j0 o'clock when difficulty took place; it
came to pass that Mr. Johnson came to my
house on Sunday, and called and told me
he wanted to see me; he told mo he was
coming over next Sunday; ho came over
next Sunday, and Mr. Ross got up and snid
"there is that nigger," I went to the door
and suid "good morning;" ('has. replied
"good morning Mr. Ware." He said "I
have been and seen Mr, Mitcfeell und he
said those things are not so." Told him I
would rather ho would not come to my
house, for I told him I did not build my
house for a "fussy house;" he said "all
right, Mr. Ware." He starts off a whistling.
Mr. Ross said, "sco here, Charles; you have
followed mo up enough." Replied John
son "I will come hero when I got ready."
Ross says, "I will see about it." The next
thing ho shot him down (witness claps
hands representing tho pop of the gun).
Said to Ross that he should not have shot
that man, for he was going away whistling;
ho said "don't you say that for it will go
against me. Say that he turned around to
havo a fu8 with me." I never have told
that yet; there was no fuss; Chns. Johnson
never said ft word to him until lie hailed
him; Km WPtlt t0 1'10 F after the shout

south; I was leaning against the doer; the
gun was behind the door; I raised up, at
the crack of the gun; run to the window
first; he first stepped six steps from my
door; he was ten steps from the door when
he was shot; he was going toward Athor
tn's; I examined his person and found
noweapon; Mrs. Long and I went
t him before any ono touched
him; I was working at Tim Mauley's, end
there wa a squirrel cjiarge in the gun;
Ross said there was a few "blue whistlers"
in my gun; he never told me where he got
the blue whistlers.
Cross-Examination. I knew Rss alcut
one month; I don't know where he lived;
when I came buck he was boarding nt my
house;' stayed there two weeks- Johnson
wa9 living out near Sandy Ridge;
Johnson came over the Sunday
before Ross was there; he came there about
halt past ckven o'clock; after Ross "had
shot Johnson he went out of the door and
away; Bill Weitneyer came and Ross went
to tho Park; after the shooting I did not
have any more conversation with Ross i:n
til I went to Charleston ; have a friendly
feeling toward Ross; have talked to a few
about this; talked to Ben Thornton; don't
know Ferdinand Keohler; never told any
person in Cairo that if Ross got c'.ear I
would kill him."
Ellen Ware (P. W's. wife): "I wa3 liv
ing near Long's house when the trouble
took place; was at home on the day when
the trouble took place: heard Johnson hoi
low; seemed like he was close up to the
door; Ware went up to the door; Charley
came to our house after wo had breakfast
und hollowed "halloa!" and Ware opened
the door. "Say, Charley, I told Mr. Mit
chell about those stories you told and he
said they were not so." said Ware. "I did
not build this house for a fussing house,
Charley, and I want no fuss here," said
Ware; Johnson said nothing; Ware told him
he wanted him to stay from the house;
Ross was sitting uear the lire and got up
and went to the door saying. "I want you
to quit following me up, Charley, I think
you have followed me enough." Charley
suid he would come there when he trot
ready; Charley run his hand ia his pocke
and Mr Ross shot him down; did not sec
him sjioot. but heard the gun; I did not see
him run his hand in his pocket, but Jlr,
Ross told me so; I went to the door and I
saw Johnson sitting down ten steps
from the door, R. did not stay
there very long before he went away; Peter
went to Long's after the shooting; Mr.
Ross was the first person who came up;
Ross was by the fire when Johnson was
Cross examined. Chas. came up and
Ware came to the door and the same con
versation followed a related above.
And this constitutes the whole story. The
witnesses were lead into tedious, and ap
parently irrelevant details, but the main
facts, covf red up with a great deal of ver
biage are giveu tibovj. At the adjourn
ment of court last eveuitig the argument of
counsel had been brought to a cloe. The
case was given to the jury and about 9
o'clock a verdict was agreed upon. The
accused was tuiitid guilty of manslaughter,
arid his punishment fixadut seventeen years
in the penitentiary, which the reader will
agree, is a mild punishment for the offence
of which he was proved guilty.
