A dispatch from Paducah to a lady
guest of the Planter's House yesterday
evening stated that the steamer Gus Fowler

wind, which blew all day yesterday.
Before Judge Olmsted yesterday were
brought two men named respectively James
Kelly and John Growth, who, with full
belly aud many, an oath staggered into his
august presence. They were both found
guilty of having violated the ordinance
against drunkenness, aud were each sent to
jail for five days.
Two rival companies are fighting for
the possession of the Rockford & Northern
railroad. Ilockford, Ills., was the scene
of a great disturbance by tho employes of
the two companies, those of one using
force to deprive those of the other of the
offices and engines of the road. Engines
have been run off the track, switches spiked,
rails torn up, telegraph wires cut and
depots and offices demolished.
A thin layer of gravel the last of the
pavement is now being placed upon that
portion of Eighth street where the stone
pavement is finished. It is thought that by
Monday evening the north half of the
street will be entirely finished and ready to
be subjected to the severest tests by teams,
etc. There is no doubt in the minds of
those who ought to know but that tho pave
ment will come up to the highest expecta
tions. It was a woman's right's meeting,
The speaker was saying, "Let us take our
stand right here and firmly resolve that
neither the votes nor the arguments of the
opposite sex, nor any power on this earth
shall turn us aside or move us one inch
from thispositi" Just here a wicked bat
flew into the room and the meeting ad
journed with so much quickness that some
of the members lost their back hair. The
speaker who could not be "turned aside,"
was seventeenth from the last in getting
out at the front door. And it is not certain
thut the but was one ot the "opposite sex,"
The city is swarming with tramps who
are dally making the rounds of its more
respectable portions begging for food. If
these men would but come down this way,
and move down a little further, about the
time of year deck hands on stcamlfiats are
offered one hundred dollars per month at
New Orleans, and if they would then but
muster up courage enough to exert them
selves a little to cam an honest living, they
would have no occasion to humble them
selves as they arc doing m order to get
their daily bread. Downright lainess is
what ails nine-tenths of the tramps in the
The team of the American Union ex
press company ran away yesterday after
noon. The driver was making bis rounds
delivering goods aud had occasion to go
toward the stable on Ninth street, and
while be was away from the wagon, the
horses started off with a box of eggs and
several other packages in the wagon.
Some one, in attempting to stop them,
scared them and they started on a brisk
run and, the wagon coming iu contact with
some obstruction, the eggs were scattered
all over it. No other damage was done.
A large number of ladies and gentle
men met up stairs in Hclorm hall last
evening and organized the United Order
of Ancient Templars, a temperance insur
ance organization which has become very
popular in other parts of the country.
Twenty-one persons joined, among them a
number of ladies, ami about twenty-five
more expressed a desire to join and will do
soattliHiiextnieeting.which will be to-night.
The officers elected were: Templar, Mr.
George S. Fisher; Past Templar, Mr. G. M.
Aldeu; Vice Templar. Mr. 1). T. Griffin;

The Clarkavillo (Ark.) Herald speaks
thus of tho assassination of the Russian
czar: "The czar was not murdered. It is
an abuse of terms to call it murder a
palpablo misnomer. He was killed in
open day, and in self-defense. It was but
retributive justice executed upon a red
handed butcher. Ho has by his orders and
through Ills agents put thousands of in
nocent persons to death by the krout,
starvation and the miserable tortures of
banishment to the dreary mines of Siberia.
Those who killed him were tho avengers.
We hopo thu uihilistB will continue in the
killing business, and kill oil' us fast as they
come, with their new czars. Thcro is
long list of them." If th0 head of every
nation, or the law-giving power of every
uution is to be held responsible for all tho
executions that take place under the laws ot
the land if the punishment of every
traitor, murderer, would-be assassin or
highwayman in accordance with the law
of the land is to be charged against such
head or power as a crime against liberty,
how many nations are now ruled by men
who ought to meet the fate the czar was
compelled to meet?
Last evening's temperance meeting
was very well attended and the exercises
were quito interesting although no re
nowned foreign orator was present to ad
dress the audience. Mr. M. Easterday
spoke in his own peculiar and very enter
taining style for about three qtiar-
ters ot an hour. S ongs and I lulormed that there was a valuable pack
prayer were also a part of the programme age for him. "Certainly," said lie, "that's

vious meeting to confer with some of our
citizens with a view to selecting a temper

that candidates for aldermen from the sev-
crai warns couici do secured, further
time was given th committee to perfect
its labors, and then, with another song and
prayer me meeting adjourned.
The "center of population" of the
United States is south of Mason and Dixon's
line, and the star of empire southward
takes it way. In the vear 1800 tho center
of the population was not far west of Balti-
more. In 1S10 it was very near Harpers
Ferry. Each successive census has thrown
it further westward at the rate of trom five
to six miles annually, or about fifty-five
miles with each succeedinsr census. In
1S70, the center was about fifty miles cast
of Cincinnati, or rather a little north of
east. Between 1870 and 1880, the increase
in tiie west has driven it westward at about
the usual pace, and the increase in the
snuthcrn states has drawn in that direction
about eight miles. These two causes acting
together will, it is thought, cause tho prcs-
ent "center" to be located about one or two
miles south of the Ohio river, immediately
back of Covington. Kv.

ail-two men and two women. There

but tho idea has not yet been put to the test,
and hence it is liable to be fallacious. The
experiment should bo made at any rate,
even though these creatures are uot now
very numerous, and would perhaps not ac
complish very much. Two or three men
kept constantly at work breaking rock
(which is the most expensive part ot the
street pavement) would save the city many
a dollar during the time that the work of
paving continues. Nor is it necessary that,

Yesterday being tho first of April a
number of practical jokes were played by
people upon tlieir friends and upon unsus
pecting strangers alike. The telephone
was frequently brought into use. Some
mischievous person would ask the central
office to connect two numbers, other than
his own, and would then stand with his
finger upon tho lever and a broad
grin upon his face listening while
these two would each simultaneously and
with angry voices ask why tho con
nection was made. Messages, 'purporting
to come from reliable parties, told the news
paper men of horrible accidents in distant
portions of tho city, which, upon inquiry,
(by telephone, of course,) proved to
be false. One poor fellow Wild I

one drug storo to another until ho had
traversed the entire city, for "pigeon milk,"
each druggist seeing the joku ami sending
him to the other whom ho had previously
posted by telephone. Hut the best joke of
tho day was that perpetrated by a couple
of charming young ladies upon one of their
young gentlemen acquaintances. This
young man had fallen into the habit, when
meeting either of these young ladies, of
closing 0110 eye and asking them
whether or not in their wanderings
through the city they had stumbled
over a Btray optical organ, pretending that
ho had lost ono. This was funny, at first,
and caused a smile, but as weeks and
months rolled on aud thu natno interroga
tory was repeated to them daily, perhaps
hourly, they concluded to take up tho joko
and yesterday wos decided upon ns a fitting
day tor that purpose. They employed aomo

Commercial avenue, especially that side of

While it is true that the opera house would,
in a meagre, attract people to almost any
portion of the city, yet this is no reason
why it aliould be placed where, in order to
reach it, people are put to much inconven-
ience thut could be avoided. Washington
