-Several robberies were perpetrated
night before last by persons who evidently
had not much experience in that kind of
business. The house of Mr. John Reese,
on Twentieth street, was entered, and a
sils-cr watch, a chain, other jewelery and
some clothing were carried away the lat
ter being afterwards found several squares
distant. The house of Mr. James Ross,
on the corner of Tenth street and Com
mercial avenue, was also entered and rob
bed of a watch and chain, the property of
the son. No clue to the thieves have so far
-Mr. Tnn O'Dwycr and Miss Aunie
O'Keeffe, both of Stone Fort, Ills., came to
this city yesterday to get married by Fath
er Masterson. The reason why they came
down here to have the ceremony performed
by Father Masterson was that he is a per
sonal friend of theirs, having been connect
ed with the church in their city sometime
past. The wedding took place in St. Pat
trick's church on the corner of Ninth street
last evening. Mr. D. J. Foley acted as
groomsman and will, it is to be hoped, with
the experience thus gained, be better qual
ified to act a more important part in n like
alfair at no distant day.
An observing exchange predicts that
the present winter "will be the coldest
experienced in this latitude since this
country was discovered by a gentleman
named Columbus. The squirrels," it goes
on to say, "are laying in their winter coal,
the beavers are putting heaters in the base
ments of their lodges, tho. bees have killed
off the drones and lined their hives with
sheet iron, the mtiskrats are flying south,
wild ducks arc committing suicide, tho
goose bone is black sixteen inches deep,
editors are soliciting cord-wood in ex
change for subscription, poor families are
buying an extra dog, and we have had a
new collar put on our overcoat."
The new Evansville and Cairo packet,
J. S. Hopkins, was at our whnrf day be
fore yesterday, and all who saw her were
very favorbly impressed with her. The
Paducah News in describing her says that
alio is not as pretty inside us tho Dexter
was, and her cabin is not so high, but out
side she has very much the look ot the
Dexter and sets mueu nicer on the water.
Shu was drawing much less than thirty
inches, with fuel aud fifty tons of freight
on board, and her speed promises to be nil
or more than lias been expected. We are
satisfied the extra stroke given her will
provo .the best lick struck in planning
her. Sho is ','00 feet long, thirty-five feet
breadth of beam, with llvo feet depth
of hold. Her engines aro sixteen inches
diameter, with seven feet stroke, and sho
has three 4-1 inch by 20 feet steel boilers.
This we think another improvement, in
that her boiler power is increased by num
ber rather than in length, which with prop
er draft will give her a more uniform and
even heat. Her cabin is after a new style,
somewhat, and is very neat with good sized
staterooms nicely furnished; the doors and
ornamental parts of the cabin being dark
and inland with gold, with monogram in
itials of the boat's name carved on the
doors and laid in gilt. The cabin is hand
somely furnished and she has the most com
fortable and roomy boiler deck arrange
ment forward ot the cabin that we have
seen on a boat of her size, the skylights bc
lag extended forward full length. She is
named for Capt. John S. Hopkins, of
Kvansvillo, who is president of the line, and
is a boat that no man should be ashamed to
have bear his name. Capt. Jim Damron,
the Dester'a popular commander, was
selected to introduce the new boat into her
trade this week, and it is not yet known
here who will be her permanent command
er. Charley C. Penninirton. formerly first
in the office of the Arkansas Belle, is her
first clerk with Ivl. Groves, late ot the C.
N. Davis, as second.
The item in yesterday's Bci.i.ktik, to
tothceflect that Miss Katie Putnam had
lost a cluster diamond ring, led to the
recovery ot the panic. Tne day before, Mr.
Egbert Smith, of the firm of Smith Bros.,
had observed a negro about his store, try
ing to sell a ring, and yesterday morning
upon reading the account ot the lost ring,
he felt shure that it was the very
ring which the negro had attempted to
sell, and accordingly notified Dr. Dunning
and Officer Schuckers of the fact. The of
ficer investigated the matter and soon
learned that the negro had sold the ring to
one of his colored acquaintances in the
lower portion of the city, fur ten dollars.
Finding the man who had bought it, it
proved to be the very ring lost.
At the last meeting of the council Al-
ierman Patier introduced a resolution
which recommends raising the Mayor's
salary to fifteen hundred dollars per year
and further states that the Mayor shall be
chairman of all committees and have regu
lar office hours and shall be at the city
lerk's office two hours each day. On mo
tion of Alderman Howley this resolution
was refered to the ordinance committee,
with instructions to report an or
dinance us they may deem best at the next
regular meeting. An ordinance covering
the above points would, in all probability,
be regarded with favor by the public
since it is very troublesome to our people
as well as strangers, who have business
with the mayor to be compelled to seek for
him ull over town, and it is hardly to be
expected that he should remain in his of
fice for so -many nours each day, without
receiving a reasonable compensation there
for. , Tho habit of ringing tho fire V'lls so
persistently after the engines are all out
and, in fact on their way back, has been
often and very generally denounced by our
people ns an intolerable nuisance. As a
rule the alarms aro not coirectly given,
even by men who ought to know the sig
nals, and after the first alarm lias been
given and the companies aro all on the
ground, boys takes possession of the bell
ropes and keep up a continuous and up
roarious clatter, just for tho amusement it
affords them and without any regard to the
feelings of the residents in the vicinity of
the engine houses or of the fact that tho
cause of tho alarm is only a burning flue,
orthatthero never was any real cause, or
that it has already passed. It seems to us
that there should be a change in this stato
of affairs either by placing tho ropes be
yond the reach of boys after the alarm has
been sufficiently given, or by requiring one
fireman to remain behind to attend to tho
ringing of the bell.
