The California Crayon Comedy com
pany held forth in the Atheneum to a small
audience last night, but to a larger one
than it merite d. With the exception of
one character, there were none
on the stage that were even tolerable
and, in short, the performance throughout
did not compare favorably with many an
amateur performance we have seen on the
stage. The company has one redeeming
quality, which is that they pnid all their
bills before shoving out.
The Mystic Krcw gave a ball it their
hall on the corner of Commercial avenue
and Sixth street last night, which alled
out a good crowd of beaus and belles. The
members of the Krew were out iu full forcu
and the ladies likewise, all in their best, at
tire and enjoyed themselves immensely un
til this morning some time. 1 he music was
furnished by a roving Italian Imu 1, and
was excellent, imparting unusual activity to
the dancers and lending a rare charm to
the entire entertainment.
Mr. Dobbins, agent, for the Knight

The ball and sociable given by the
Bough and Beady tire company last night
in their hall, on Washington avenue, was
the occasion of much real enjoyment to a
large number of our citizens. A good
string band was in attendance, and the
best of feeling prevailed among the dancers
snd merry-makers. The elegant hall wan
niwded with people, lolh young and old,
and dancing lasted until twelve o'clock
when a sumptuous meal was partaken of
by the entire company. Dancing was then
resumed, and no doubt lasted until all
were fully satisfied that they had had
enough fun for a month or more.
Judge Harker, of the circuit court of
Tnion county of this state, has decided that
under the laws of this state a woman can
not hold the office of master in chancery.
The judge, in deciding the case, paid a
compliment to Mrs. Sclmrchardt, tho lady
who held the office, and which the pro
ceedings ousted, by saying "that while I
am constrained to sustain thin demurrer,
and hold that she caunot, uuder the law,
retain this office, there is not one of the
masters in chancery in the tour counties
where I preside who has been more faithful
or attentive in the discharge of their duties,
and none who has exhibited her qualifica
tions to discharge his duties well. Aud it
is my sinc ere hope that at its next session
the legislature will make this office acres
sible to females."
The governor will shortly issue .his
proclamation calling in for payment the
last of the state debt, w hich is about 281,-
000, including $23,000 of bonds called
previously, but which, not, having been pre
sented, is supposed to be lost. All the debt
will be wiped out if presented by January
1, and if not presented the interest on il
will cease from that date. On Jauuary 1,
1837, when Mr. Matteson, the last demo
cratic governor, went out of office, the state
debt was over $14,000,000. With the state
debt fund now in the treasury, and the re
ceipts of the Illinois Central railroad fund
for the half year ending October 1, there
will be a considerable surplus, which will
be applied to the expenses of tho state gov
ernment, so that state taxes in future will
be lighter than ever before.
The Young People's Temperance so
ciety held their regular meeting last even
ing, with Miss Fanuie Barclay in the chair,
ond Mrs. Kasterday presiding at the orgati.
The usual routine ot business was transact
ed, and it was decided to change the night
of meeting from Thursday to Friday even
ing. The literary exercises were opened
with a select reading by Miss Maud Ritten
house, entitled "The Blossoming Staff,"
which was indeed well read. A chorus
was then sung by Misses EQie Coleman,
Jennie Wilson, Annie Itiley and Messrs.
Geo. Fry and Tom Horn, which was very
tine. Miss Wintio Dunning read a beauti
ful piece, in her pleasant way, entitled
"My Watch." Miss Musa Green read a
paper containing questions and their an
swers. These were brinful of wit and hit
several "nails on the head." But we were
happy to note the absence of sarcasm.
Miss Annie Pitcher saug a solo,
"The Kerry Dance," winch was a
very difficult piece of music, but Miss
Annie sang it in her usual tine style. The
president of the Hufoim cjub was then
called upon to address the audience. Mr.
Eastnrdiiy cheerfully responded and his
remarks were to the point. He was glad
to see such an interest manifested among
tho young ladies and gentlemen in the
cause of temperance, and hoped it would
ontinue, and thought It would amply re
pay our people to come out And listen to
tho exercises. He urged each and everyone
to take hold of the work even If it was not
just in tlrlr way of thinking and doing.

Last evening about eight o'clock our
wharf was the scene of a tragedy that came
near terminating fatally to the. principle
figure therein. A womau nu-uad Mrs.
Itcnfro, a widow, arrived here on the. steaa
cr Helm.a early in the evening from Capo
Oirardcau, where she stood high in tho esti
mation of tho people and was in easy ficaa
cial circumstances. But it appears .hr.t
she got into trouble of some kind and w as,
whether jjurtly or not we do cot know,
suspected of theft and wsi fleeing
from the authorities of tho county. In
this she was not successful, however,
for the next boat that came down the river,
which was the W. V. Halliday, brought the
deputy sheriff of the county m which Cape
Girardeau is situated, Mr. Henry Kopper,
by came, who arrived hero before the
Helena had taken her departure. Mr.
Kopper found the object of his search,
although she had embarked under an as
sumed name, arrested her aud when a!ut
to march her off the boat, having his atten
tion called away from her, she gathered
her hkirts together and plungored from the
stage plank iuto the river. She was ought
by one of the lines with
which the boat was tied to
the wharf and which had slackened
and was hidden under the water, and was
rescued as soon as pos.-ible. But not too
soon, for she had already swallowed a large
quantity ot water, aud had to be taken to
the hospital for treatment. She will be
taken back to the C.ipa whuo she has re
covered and given a trial. 'The mortifica
tion and shame at the prospect of being
compelled to face those who respected her,
as a criminal, no doubt lead her to seek a

city has always been full of idlers, good
mechanics too, who stood around corners

so many Micatibers; rents were low aud
residences going to ruin for the want of

as a sort of second rate way station,
unworthy the expenditure of a few hun

buildings, even for their own use. Nothing
was undertaken by anybody that gave any
sign of enterprise, and onu might justly
have dubbed this lit Je neck of earth,
"forgery land." But things have taken a
new turn. Within the last
