Considerable excitement was occasioned
on Eighth street, near tho levee, yesterday
by Officer Lallue shooting at a negro whom
he had arrested for fighting, and who at
tempted to make bis escape by jumping
from the sidewalk and running towards the
river. He was captured on tho wharf-boat,
and being tried before Judge Olmsted, was
fined five dollars and costs.
The showman who was day before yes
terday arrested on the supposition that he
had obtained fifteen dollars, by means of a
confidence game, from a lady boarder of one
of our hotels, named Mrs. G. L. Bertrund.was
yesterday given his liberty without trial-
owing to the fact that the woman was un
able to swear that he bad taken her money.
She was under the influence of liquor when
she lost the money.

Mr. II. Leighton, who, with his fami

many others, without a house to live in

compelled to leave his family in Villa
Ridge on that account. His case is only
one of a score or more winch, one should
think, would have some influence in calling
the idle captial in our midst in the work of
satisfying so urgent a demand for smalljesi
dences. The News of yesterday, the 29th inst.
publishes a letter dated Springfield, 29th

inst. The tact that the letter is uateu on
the same day that it apeared in print is
positive eivdence to Democrats that it was
written in the News office by the editor
himself, but, of course, Republicans will
argue that there are exceptions to all rules
and that therefore it might have reached
here without consuming time. However,
since the letter contained nothing of im
portance it doesn't matter where or b)
whom it was written.
As stated in yesterday's issue it would,

Miss Maggie Lofiin, took place yesterday
at the residence of the bride's parents on
Seventh street Rev. B. Y. George per

of very costly presents were received, and
the couple were the recipients of warm con
gratulations from dear friends, many of
whom had known both parties from child
hood. The couple left for their future
home in Lebanon yesterday evening, where
the best wishes of all, including The Bui.
i.etin, follow them.
Our friend F. M.Ward has, with mal
ice aforethought aud inspired by his Satan
ic Majesty, and against the peace and dig
nity of the State of Illinois, raised a Gar
field and Arthur pole on his premises, on
the corner ot Seventeenth and Commer
cial, wherefore we are angry, and as we
tear our Apollonian locks, swear that his
scalp shall decorate our sanctum. Although
it is the only Garfield and Arthur oole
among the hundreds in tho city, the good

of Mettiuaolctirs ghost, praying that the

por gom(J timo pa8t nr. pfttier, of the
New York store, and Mr. O'Hara, of the
Phcouix drug store, have each suspected
one of their clerks of dishonest practices.
These two boys were noticed to be very
intimate and to spend considerably more
monoy than their wages alone would per
mit( hence it was agreed between the two
nrnnrietors to keen an eve on the two
J - -
young men. It is customery in the house
of Mr. Patier that whatever is sold to any
one customer is noted on a slip of paper,
giving tho amount, the name of tho pur
chaser, whether paid or not, and tho name
ot the sab sinau. These slips are placed on
filo at the cashier's desk nnd if the goods
are" paid for. the money must accompany
tho "check." It was observed that this
clerk, Nathaniel Newman by name, failed
M execute checks for sll his sales and kept
the tnonev he received. Mr. O'Hara also
became satisfied that bis clerk was
"crooked." It was agreed, therefore, be
tween tho two employers to proceed against
the two young men simultaneously, and
they wcro accordingly arrested by Officer
Wooten night bctoro last. Mr. O'Hara had
his clerk's trunk searched, and it was found
to contain, besides two full boxes ot cigars,
a number of toilet articles, such as per
fumery, combs, soap, towels, etc. He took
possession of them and gave tho young
man (whoso namo is suppressed) a few
hours in whicli leave town. He departed
yesterday morning for parts unknown, on
tho Vincennes train. Young Newman was
taken to jail and given a preliminary hear
ing before Justice Osborn yesterday. Ho
was held in bond ot two hundred dollars
to answer tho charge of embezzlement and
larceny at the circuit court. Failing to give
bond he was taken to tho county jail for
The steamer John Means took on a
new crew at New Orleans on her up trip,
several of whom were not quite well at the
time, being afflicted with the so-called
"br'oak-bono fever." Theso became worse,
and while yet at the New Orleans wharf,
communicated the disease to the entire
crew, all of whom, including tho pilot,
clerks, cabin hands and engineers, were
down with it. The boat was, of course, de
layed thereby, but started on her trip
after a few days. She was halted at tho
Memphis quarantine station and rigidly
examined, was allowed to pass, how
ever, and arrived at our wharf yesterday,
and after taking what she could get here,
proceeded on her way unmolested. We
have this information from Mr. Jack Frost,
' who was an employe of the .boat, but who
abandoned her at this point.
Now that a great deal of the stock
bought and sold is liable to bo affected
with the prevailing disease, the health of
ficer should comply with chapter ten, sec
tion nineteen of the revised ordinances,
which prescribes his duty as an inspector
of meats. He should daily visit every
meat shop in the city so long as the pres
ent scare lasts, and ascertain to a certainty
that no unsound meats are offered for sale.
We do not pretend to say that any of our
butchers would knowingly sell unsound
meats, but possibly they might do so un
knowingly, and since many a family has
been prevented from purchasing beef ow
ing to the belief that unsound meat would
be palmed off on them, it would be to the
interest of the butchers, as well as to the
people in general, should he comply with
the requirements of the ordinance aforesaid
He is a competent judge of meats, and since
he has no other very urgent duties to per
form at the present time, should let the
people have the benefit ot his knowledge
Dr. Clark informs us that Gen. Haskell
left the city with his army without settling
with him for the quarters which the army
rarnnicil durintf their stav here. The
amount due the Doctor was seven dollars,
but in the goodness of his heart he had re
solved to charge the General only five dol
lar when the hour of settlement should
arrive. But, owing to the General's trick
ery, that hour has not yet put in an appear
ance and, according to the Doctor's belief,
win fnrpver keen itself very scarce
Immediately before his departure the Gen
eral rented the quarters tor the entire win
ter, sayitfg that he intended to make Cairo
his headquarters, and then left the city with
his army for Paducah, while the Doctor was
absent from the building. Upon his arrival
at Paducah he wrote to the Doctor that he
would return in a few days and pay him
hut according to the Doctor's reckoning
"a few days" have already elapsed, and since
the General nor his check have not yet shown
themselves, the Doctor is not inclined t
place any great reliance iu any promise th
General may make in the luture
The case of the Cincinnati uianufactu
rer, which was brought to our notice 1
Captain Shields, and to which we referre
in yesterday's issue, gives rise to considera
tions which are not very generally note
by the Republican stump speakers iu their
denunciations of the people of the south
and which, if given their proper weigl
will have a tendency to confuse those wh
strive to keep up a spirit of unimosity be
tween the two sections. This manufacturer
linds himself m tho same position tln.t
nearly all his contemporaries occupy. He
depends to a great extent upou the
people of the south for tho ilis
positi'n of Ids wares and finds,
therefore, that their interests arc his inter
ests. The fact is that, in spite of the frantic
efforts of conciencless and relfish politician!
to create a contrary feeling, tho people of
the two sections of our common country
have a brotherly feeling for ono another.
They know that the ono depends upon tho
other and that the best possible way to
serve their own interests, is to rebuke tho
villains who would create dhcord, by cul
tivating a mutual regard for each other,
by acknowledging the dependence each
upon tho other and by placing those in
power who will do all they can to promote
harmony and consequent prosperity. The
manufacturer of tho north knows that he de
pends to a great degree upon the Vroduccr
and consumer of the south' for his raw
material and for tho sale of his manufac
tured goods, and tho planter of the south
recognizes his own dependence upon
his 'brother in tho north. Hencu
they will mutually disregard tho ranting
of tho demagogue and continue, their
peaceful nnd profitable business relations,
and protect one-another against their com
mon enemy the Republican party.

My dear Mi. Editor:
Tho dear old Bulletin, whose face is as
familiar to us as is the face of our dearest
friend, reaches us five out ot every seven
duys, and is as welcome as welcome can
be. The very typo seems to look out at us
like eves, we know, and have learned to
-rf - i
love. Each day we read it with that eager
ness that is wont to be bestowed upou a
long, long letter from home, only. And,
indeed, The Bulletin is just that to this
blessed family, I do assure you, and
nothing else. Every change is noted, every
item n-ad ; each familiar name rested upon
with a lingering look that the name of no
stranger, however, noted, could command

exhibiting in every moovo tho wisdom born
of a cultured intellect and a determined,
cool and steady brain. But, my dear sir,
even a cultured bruin-pan can bo cracked,
as you very well know, anil wo are con
stantly, apprehensive that yours will be
submitted to some process of that kind a
process that, accomplished by a ball from a
revolver or "by a club, in tho hands ot a
murdetous ruffian is equally unpleasant to
tho subject operated upon, and, therefore, to
bu avoided. Wear a coatot mail, young
man a coat of mail! virtue is not proof
against such weapons as are likely to bo
used upon your preslous person.
Do you believe iua ju t retribution, Mr.
Editor? I do, and I'll tell you how I came
to be bo convinced that, my convictions on
tint subject were correct. Through a
period of more years thau I like to remetn
btr as being able to number, I havo been
a close observer of men and things, in gen
eral, and I have found in very, very many
instances indeed, that where a great wrong
has been done a just and faithful retribu
tion whs certain to overtake the doer of th?
wicked deed. I was reminded of this by
reading of the death, from hydrophobia, of
an old citizen of Cairo. God is just. A skele
ton hand points its fleshless finger at every
doer of an evil deed. The brand of Cain
is upon him. ''Vengeance is mine," sayeth
the Lotd, nor priest, nor preacher, nor
prayers, nor praise can ward off the Divine
decree. At the midnight hour, when the
souls of men should be at rest, no rest is
his. In the noonday eun, when all else is
full of joy aud light and life.no brightness
is his, no joy is his, no peace is his. The
chilling shadow of a flethless form keeps
voiceless step at his shrinking side, nor
slacks tor oue lttt'.e moment its ccase'.ess
watch, tracking him with unerring cer
tainty; following, following, always pres
ent, down to the very gates of death!
Who shall dare to raise the pall and look
into the grent beyond?
The exposition building is now open,
with its nameless and numberless beauties,
for the inspection of an admiring public.
In the eyes of your humble servant the
whole thing U magnificent. It fact, in
this city of magnificences every thing is
carried oil in such a magnificent scale,
and in such magnitude of dimentions
that any attempt at a description would
seem presumptious from her poor pen. At
some early day, should it plcaso you to
find room for it, I shall send you a newsy
letter. In the mean time, with many
thanks for The Bulletin, kindest wishes

prietor, with a thousand pleasant memo
