Frank Brooks and an inmate of her

yesterday and complained that a crowd of
young roughs had visited her house, on
Washington, between Fifth and Mxth. and
after knocking the posts from under the
sidewalk iu front of the house, had also
knocked some of the supports of the build

woman his usual fatherly advice, saying, "if
a man smite thee on one cheek, turn to him
the other also." etc. They left the court
without prosecuting the young rascals.

( irdinaiicf Nu'ifi, recently pa-sed by (he
pily council, provides for th" construction
und rec ntruction of several miles of Hide
walk. The contract for the work will be
let next month some time, and the cut is to
be provided for by special assessment upon
the property benefitted by the improvement
thus made. O.vners of such propeitv may,
between now uul the 13th of next mouth,
build the sidewalk in front of their respective-premises
themselves, but at the expira
tion of that time the city will have the
work performed hy contract and assess the
cost thereof upon the property in front of
which the sidewalks are built or rebuilt.
There is now due the city something over
three thousand dollars as special assess
ments for local improvements, and there is
some difficulty in making the collection.
It is absolutely necessary that these im
provements should be made and the people
generally regard them with a smile of satis
faction upon their faces. But it is also ab
solutely necessary that they should be paid
for and the smile is generally transmogri
fied with a frown when the city collector
comes around to have a little talk with the
real estate owner.

Our Ohio levee clothing merchant. Mr.
John Antrim, had quite a narrow escape
from a watery grave, yesterday evening
about o:o0 o'clock. Mr. Antrim and bis
.son. Albert, had gone aboard the Mississip
pi Valley Transportation company's eleva
tor ut the foot of h'igluh street, to see its
operations and having s -en its working
were about to jump from the barge, and re
turn home, when it commenced to swing
out into the stream. Mr. Albert Antrim
jumped, however, and reached the land in
safety, and Mr. John Antrim believing he
too, could jump the distance be
tween the barge and land,
made the attempt, but failing
he fell backwards into the river. The
barge at once commenced swinging back
towards the shore at a rapid rate and be
fore Mr. Antrim could gain hi feet it had
passed over his head and shoulder. Hi
son, Albert, nerved by his father's condi
tion, jumped into the river and drew him
from beneath the barge and thus saved him
from being crulied beneath it, l'pon
reaching the shore it was found that his
leg had been broken or dislocated at rhe
knee and he was carried to bis residence on
F.ighth, between Walnut and Washington,
Tl e Illinois'Oiitral train had just start
ed on Sunday when a man was seen to jump
from the train and make for the river. Me
jumped upon the Cairo City Coal Company's
barges and gaining the outer one comment -ed
stripping himself of his clothes. Officer
Schtickeis. being upon the levee, was notifi
ed of the man's action and gained the barge
just in time to save his life. It was his in
tention to commit suicide, and he had al
ready rid himself of hi clothes and was
about to plunge into th" river when the of
ficer laid hands upon him. The stranger,
who was a powerfe.l m in, wa greatly pi t
out by tlie ocrli er's interference and strug
gled with linn to gain the water, but a
stranger c lining to Schueker's assistance
this was prevented. He w is then made to
put o:i his cloth -s agiin and was placed in
the cure ot Jailer Andy Cain. His name
is It. P. Toler and he was. iu compmy of
hi mother and hi two children, on hi
route from Dallas, Texa to Dongola. We
learn that his wife died in D allu a few
week ago, and ever since that time he has
talked and acted like a deranged man,
Yesterday afternoon he was put upon the
Illinois Central train and sent to D mgola,
where his mother has preeeeded him.
A very ugly fight occurred on Com
mercial, between Nineteenlh and Twentieth
streets yesterday which, but for the timely
interference of one of ourcitien might have
resulted seriously erhnps in the death of
one of the combatants. The. cause of the
difficulty was ,.i young drunken cooper,
who works at the corner of Twentieth and
Commercial, and who has the ambition of be.
in,' thought a "had man," This fellow in
his boozy condition darted for a young tiiiui
who was standing in front of Kyn.iston s
butcher shop, near the corner of Twentieth,
and but for the quickness with which tho
young man dodged the blow which was
aimed al him, he would doubtless have re
ceived a s"vere cut. Bui this was
only the beginning of the
icil difficulty. The young man,
trying to avoid the drunken fellow, iillempi
ed to leave the neighborhood, ruid iu ho do
ing was followed not less than two blocks
by the drunken cooper wi'.h the open knife
in his hand. The young man remained down
town long enough lo warrant him In the be
lief thai he was safe in reluming, when he
made hi way back to Kyna.stou's shop, but
upon arriving there was at ouce jumped
upon by the cooper with his knife. He ran
into Kynaston's shop, hut soon
appeared with club iu hand
to defend himself. It was then
that a fierce fight ensued, and but for the
prompt interference of one of our citizens
one of the two of the men would perhaps
have been killed, since both were determin
ed fellows, and one blow from the club,
squarely on the head, would have, been suf
ficient to kill an ox. The citizen who
caught the cooper by the nape of the neck
and pulled him away, received a blow on
the back ot his head, which was not in
tended for him. but which knocked lit in to
the ground and stunned him for several
minutes. No arrests were made.
The rumor has from time to time gain
ed currency that the Cairo an I Vincennes
railroad company coutcuiplato l the erec
tion of a substantial und handsome depot
on Commercial, below Second street, but it
has generally been winked at as u rumor of
no significance and unfounded. For a few
days reports to the effect that some of the
laborers, who were to construct the
depot, were already iu the city
have cunte to our ear, from v.irio:; sources,
and believing that no ill could result from
calling upon Mr. Hoswel! Milh-r. the gen
eral superintendent of the road, an I learn
the truth, we went to his oll'ie" vest r
ilt y evening. We found Mr. Miller "in"
m l, it may not be amiss to here p-mark
that we found in him a business. like and
pleasant gentleman, i'pon broaching t;,e
subject to hint we were infoune 1 that the
company had alrea iy contracted for the
necssary lumbiT for tin- erection of the
freight depot which would lie located at the
Comer of Second street, on the Wft Side of
Commercial. Th" buiiiting wor.l-1 be a
large and sub-t mtial mie and wuiiid I e
built as soon a p is-ible. It wa tru-. h"
-aid, that men h id arrive I in this city to
aid ill t.'i" Coii-d-miici of the d pot.
but that operation had been
.suspended on .vcoiint ot tin- ut" rain.
The pa-enger depot w ri'd In.' built oppo
site of tin freight depot and back of the
St. Charle h it'-l. on V.-n'k seventeen, and it
would he a bin is laic brick structure.
Work o:i th" passenger depot would prol.a

which, not on his own account, but on ac
count of hi wife, he said, it wa hi,- duty to
r.'Si-nt, and accordingly commenced pro
ceedings against the Fik un ler the civil
right bill. But before our p-"p,e
were aware of i, Mr. M'Ai'ini
had disappeared, no one knowing
where he hid gone. Now, bow
ever, the new cotiie from St. Charles. Mo.
ol' the an -st of this same Di. McAitht'.r for
an attempt to outrage a Mi Josephine I!
Ch.ytoii, of St. l,oiii. And the arrest ha
brought to light t queer serie of affair
carried on by McAithur and tin- wonnn he
call hi. wife, which ha aroused the citi
.ns of St. Charle to a pitch of excitement
and indignation, vicli a nothing In done
for a long tinie. The fact-, so far as
brought to light, are these: Some time
ago MeArliiur advertised for a young lady
who spoke both French and Knglih to act
as companion for his wile. The advertise
meiit was answered by Mis Clayton, of S',
Louis, and a number of letters were receiv.
ed purporting to come from. Mr. McArthur,
und such reprc. , nation made that the
young lady cam'.' there on Monday las',
During the evening McArthur acted in such
a manner that the girl's suspicious were
aroused, aud she say slw determined to
leave, but that the woman said her,
husband was , eeceutric tiud thai
she would take cure of her
during the night, ami that she could leave
in the morning if she was determined to
go. After she hud retired, she says, Me
Arthur forced his way into tho room and
attempted improper liberties with
her teiling hel that if she
screamed he would kill her. On his
using violence toward her she screamed,
ami his wife went Into the room and forced
him to desi.-t. Ho then k-JokjJ hU wife
down, and in. the pr-ieuce of the yo'ing
lady behaved iu the most revolting manner.
The next morning the girl wis taken to the
depot by the women and went back to h-'r
home iu St, Louit. There she told li r
story to lier brother-in-law, Mr. Franeu
Thompson, whose residence i on Missis
sippi avenue, St. Louis, lie came lt.f
Saturday and had McArthur and hi wife
arrested. Another young lady, Mis Pc k
liam, of St. Louis, went to St. Charle on the
morning train, having been decoyed there
by the suiiie means that Miss Clayton ws.
She was at the house when Sheriff It len.'i
arrested Mric Mc Arthur, and fainted when
the sheriff told her what set of a pine h
W4in. The letters written by Mrs.MeArth jr
to both the ladies are in the hands "f the
sh'-ri;!'. and they are said tube very skiltnt
ly written iin for their purpose. Dr. Me
Arthur has been iu St. Charles since Jn.y;
he rented a hotisc and h id his otli." iu i
His behavior there was a g'od ii-;a', as it
had been in Cairo, lie was scarcely evi
seen on the street and had no'hiug t do
with any one socially. It is unknown U-y
he lived, as he ha I very littlj pia. 'i. e.
