We stated not long ago that Mr. James
Geary, an officer of, Paducah, had passed
through this city on his way to Texas. At
that time we, for prudential reasons, did
not mention the business on which Mr.
Geary went. He yesterday passed this
city having in charge one of Paducah's for
mer merchants, who has lately defrauded
his creditor's out of four thousand dollars.
The arrest was made iu Shcrmmi, Texas.
We see cards, signed by brewers and
wholesale beer dealers, published ifi many
of our exchanges, announcing that on and
after the first of February they will sell
beer at niue dollars a barrel, an advance of
two dollars per barrel. They teel compelled
to make this advance, because tlie prices of
malt, hop, and all the materials entering
into the manufacture'ot beer have risen,
and on account of the increased cost of
pioduction caused thereby, the price of
beer must be advjmfed also.
Chief La Ilue was engaged the greater

In yesterday's Btl.t.KTtN uppeured
communication, written by one of our col

last ni:i!it,iii referring to this communica

the colorcl friends of the colored agent,
bird, to kiep a little quiet nliout their op- j
position to these incur The fact that the j
coiiimuiiicjtion concerning them appeared
in tills journal very plainly answers this
qu' iiion ii the negative. .The Luminary
also nppiently attempts to intimidate the

of the coumuiiicalion is not Bird.

--I'lie other evening at about seven
o'clock, two men. well drivsiol and of gen
tleniaiily appearance entered the residence
of on-! of our citizens, by the front dour
without ringing the bell or giving iinv
otli'T waiin.ig ol their presttuce. Ihev
parsed through several rooms, and entered
the (lining room, where the gentleman of
the house was at nipper; and, without say
ing a word, took seats nt the table. By
tnis timii the entire house was aroused. A
number of young holies who had gathered
in tint parlor, early in the evening, at once
seutlered iii every room in the building and
were thoroughly alarmed. The hem I of the
house kindly invited the fellows to "take a
