Tho increase in our business during the
post year has been so great as to necessitate
tho extension of our present store room. We
appreciate tho increased patronage and have
taken prompt measures to enlarge our
premises, which, when completed, will
give us tho finest storo room in tho city.
This improvement compels a reduction of
our present stock. Wo have, therefore,
marked down our surplus stock to prices
that will bo for tho interest of every buyer
to investigate. Our business is now tho

At about six o'clock, yesterday even
ing, a large cake of ico broke a hole into
the hull of tho steamer City of Helena,
while she was luying above tho incline.
Tho rumor at oneo gained currency that sl o
was rapidly sinking, but, in fact, the hole
was securely closed before much water
found its way into the hull.
In our local columns will be found the
advertisement ot Mr. C. R, Stuart, "the
Eighth street dry goods merchant." Mr.
Stuart is one of the live business men of
the city, who informs tho public of what he
can do and always carries out what he ad
vertises. Hence his business is flourishing
and coiiijantly increasing so that he finds
an enlargement of his business house, at an
early date, necessary. His stock of laces,
ribbons and notions is the largest in the
city and generally deserves tho ppneial c
tlce of the public.

The following from the Salino County
Democrat iss speciman of tho country wit
occasionally indulged in by our exchanges:
"A tew days ago a freight train on the
C. & V. was stopped in the woods near Nor
ris City, and all hands ordered out to catch
a rabbit, which was seen sporting in tho
bushes near the track. The rabbit was
soon run down and secured, when the con
ductor remarked that meat was scarce
anil high in Cairo, and he considered it
his duty to do what be could to supply and
relieve the market in that place. Since the
arrival of that train, there has been a panic
in the meat market at Cairo.
The Alheueum was again crowded last
night by a cultured audience, attracted
there by tho many elogiums pa.-scd upon
tho troupe by those who had witnessed the
performance the night before. Owing to
the illness of ono of the principle actors iu
the play called "Matrimony," which was
advertised for that night it was not
produced, but another equally as good
called "Dr. Cline," whs placed upon the
boards and splendidly performed. The
large audience gave vent to its feelings of
approval in frequent bursts of Applause.
A portion ot the afternoon was devoted to
a m utti rice, at which tho "Galley Slave was
produced. It was also witnessed by a
Tho Cassino society has appointed
the twenty fifth instant as tho day upon
which its grand masquerade ball is to take
place. Washington hall, ono of the most
popular halls in the city, is designated us
the phico where it will bo given, which
fact is a guarantee that the accommodation
as regards room and other conveniences
will be ample. Tie! society is one of the
oldest in to city, and has becomo quite
popular through its annual balls. It cer
tainly merits tho good will of tho public
generally. The preparations for tho event
have been in the bunds of gentlemen, who
are experienced in mutters ot that kind.
Hence all who attend may rest assured of a
An excitement of no great magnitude,
however was created on Eighth Street,
between Commercial avenuo and Ohio
levee at about eight o'clock last night by
tho report of a pistol. Investigation devel
oped the fact that two negroes had entered
the eating house of Mr. Doering, situated
back of Mr. Chas. Pflll'erling's saloon, and,
after bountifully helping themselves to the
eatables set before them informed Mrs.
Doering that thuy were minus the necessa
ry cash, to straighten tho littlo difference
between them and bid her good evening.
Mrs. Doering informed her husband of tho
conduct of tho rascals, who atonco appeared
on tho sceno with a revolver and shot at
them whilo they were in tho net of cross-
ing tho street. They made their escapo by
stretching their legs in the direction of

broken by tho custom houso officer hero
and the contents transferred intocars, under
his supervision, to bo transported by rail
to St. Louis. About a week ago a barge

derwent similar treatment at our wharf.

amounts to thntisaiuls ot dollars on a barge

Although no great noise is being made
by tho teinpei'cnco laborers of this city, in
tho interest of their cause, an unmistak
able revival is apparent. Peoplo who never
or seldom visited the hull
of un evening may fc now,
at least occasionally, bo found there, pleas
untly chatting with acquaintances or
friends. And why should this not be so?
It is n place where men, old and young,
may find n warm fire, tho latest periodicals,
newspapers, etc., as well as needed comfort
and recreation, and experience
tho feeling that they aro
welcome. To make the place additionally
attractive, a number of ladies aro in atten
dance during the evening who know, better
than anyone else, how to pleasantly enter
tain visitors. Mrs. M. Eusterday, assisted
by Miss Jennie Wilson, Miss Emma
Leland, Miss Annio Wilson, Miss Mamie
Parker, and others, wcro in attendance at
the hall last night, and were pleased to be
favored with a goodly number ot visitors.
A man named Marsh, whoso residence
is near New Madrid, boarded tho steamer
Annie P. Silver at Memphis and paid for
his passage to bis home. He was assigned
a staTerooiu and demeaned himself in
a quiet nnd gentlemanly manner
attracting no special attention. Reach
ing Point Pleasant, lie left the boat, with
satchel iu hand, under tho impression that
he had arrived at his destination, but be
ing persuaded that be was mistaken by the
second clerk ot the boat, Mr. Daniel Blake,
again boarded the bout. Shortly after
wards, while in tho cabin, he bid a
fit and after recovering therefrom went to
his state room, but shortly afterward came
out; again currying his satchel. He tried
the doors of all the state rooms, and finding
them locked, went to the clerk's office and
insisted that he had been carried past bis
landing and wanted the boat stopped.
Ho then mounted the stairs leading to the
deck and made straight for the pilothouse,
but before reaching it, shot at a negro boy
w I. o was w liking along the deck, in the
act ot carrying a scuttle of coal. The boy
dodged immediately upon seeing the pistol
leveled at him and secreted himself. Reach
ing the pilot house, which wai occupied by
tho pilot, ('apt. David Silver, and the sec
ond clerk, Mr. D.iniel Blake, Mar-di open
ed the door slightly, and pointing bis
pistol at the clerk's head, shot him through
tho temple betorc his presence was noticed
A shiver ran through the clerk's frame and,
falling from the chair, he was dead before
he touched the floor. Marsh then leveled
his pistol ut the pilut, but before he could
shoot, ('apt. Sdver bad caught bold of it
and received the bullet in bis bund there
by probably saving the life of the pilot. A
terriblo struggle then ensued in which,
only after tho the most desperate efforts,
Marsh was cverpowered and the pistol
taken from him by beating
his head with a poker, lie
exhibited a strength that was unnatural
and almost equal to the combined strength
of the captain and pilot, and raved like a
mad man. He was under the impression
that he was about to establishing himself
master of the craft and spoke in an excited
and disconnected manner. Upon reaching
New Madrid he was put ashore and
it was learned there that kbe
was generally known as a very quiet and
inoffensive man, who was well thought of
by the people ot the town. Tho remains
of Mr. Blaku wcro shipped to St. Louis
from Belmont. Ho was one of tho most
popular clerks on tho river, and was unmar
ried. These facts wo havo from dipt.

A GOOD COMPANY.
Tho Power's Galley Slave combination
played yesterday afternoon to the largest
mutinoo house that has ever assembled in

members of tho company was fully appre

Last night the play was clmn'rd from

from tho burstsof applause which greeted
each actor in turn, could not havo been
anything but tho gainer by tho change.
