There is no chatige in tho situation at

A black brute was mercilessly lashing
a horse yesterday that was attached to a
wagon heavily loaded with wood, Ho is a
teamster for one of our wood dealers and
had bucked his wagon, when empty, close
to a barge loaded with sawed wood, lying
at the toot of Fourth street.
The horses mado repeated cffortB
to draw the load out of tho low place in
the water where it had settled, but tho
barge bearing up against it they could not
move it, and the brutal driver used the
whip in a reckless manner about the head,
neck and legs of one the dumb creatures.
We have no doubt but that, had his em
ployers witnessed his conduct, they would
not have stopped at a severe reprimand.
Yesterday's election for two members of
the board of school directors came off very
quietly. It could not have been otherwise;
because first, tho voters ot the city had not
been notified in time of the approach ol the
election and secondly, there were no oppos
ing candidates. Messrs. Ilallidny aud
Korsmeyer, who discharged tbe duties of
the office of school directors so well iu
years past, were iinauiniously re-elected.
The place of voting, tho Eleventh stieet
school house, was open from eight o'clock
in the morning until four in the afternoon.
Messrs. Win. Stratton and J. A. Goldstino
acted as judges, and Mayor Thistlowood as
clerk. At lour o'clock the pole was
closed and Mayor Thstlowood, with the bal
lot box under his arm and accompanied by
the judges, leisurely sauntered home.
TIil8"fbrmoon7 at the hour of eleven
o'clock, Rev. Anderson, of tho colored Jlap
tist church, on Fourteenth street, will lead
a number of his nowly converted flock to
the stone depot and there, in the cold wa
ters of the Ohio, perform upon them the
ceremony of baptism. It is possible that
the poor victims will survive tho ordeal,
(and it is said that they surely will if they
arc true believers) but it is not jiossible that
all of them will survive without carry
ing with them through the balance
of their earthly lives, the effects
of such a rush violation of nature's laws.
It is highly probable that the uuholiness of
which the soul is purged by the operation
will enter their flesh and bones, and rack
them with rheumatism, neuralgia and "in
fluehzy" as long as they have the misfor
tuue to be of the earth earthy.
The white man, who was cut at East
Cairo a few days ago by the negro "Honest
John," and who was taken to the hospital
here to Imj cared for, has entirely recovered
and has been discharged. His wound was
hut slight, though the intention of the
negro was bad. The circumstances of the
cutting have not yet been published and
were alwut s follows : The negro "Honest
John" is employed over the river by the
railroad company in the sand -drying house.
The day upon which the cutting took
place was very cold and this white man
came in the dry bouse to get
warm. The uegro ordered him to
go out and get some coal, which
he refused to do when he was told that be
couldn't Btay in there and warm and was
ordered to leave. He refused to do this.
when John drew his knife and threatened
to "cut him all to pieces." The tramp took
the hint and grasped John by the throat,
threw him to the ground and told him to
behave himself. When he was finally let
up the negro opened his pocket knife and
while Bpeaking to the tramp in a concilia
tory tone and gently tapping him on the
breast with one hand, made a sudden move
ment and stabbed him in the side. An
other clinch was made and strain the
negro was overpowered, but again let go
without doing him any serious injury.
Tho white man's wound bled copiously,
and it was thought that it would prove
fatal ami that it did not do so was merely
an accident. "Honest John" fled to the
woods when he saw what ho had done aud
has not been heard of since.

The new postmaster-general, Mr.
James,, outlines several improvements he
designs making in the postal system. He
is to give New York city ten deliveries a
day, and will give attention in the same
direction to the needs of St. Louis and the
other business centers of the country. He
says the delivery system is the uiotiey-inak-ing
part of the service. He is also desirous
of introducing postal savings banks, after
tne Untisli system as modified to suit
this country. He also favors a reduction of
money order fees to 5 cents for orders not
above 10, so as to discourage the sending
ol small sums in envelopes. These changes
seem to be in tho right direction, Mr.
James can make them operate successfully
if anobody can. It should be regarded as a
misfortune if political exigencies should
seem to oblige his retirement from the cab
inet while he is considering how to in
crease the popularity of the postal service.
The country would like to have him give
some thought to the practicability of a two
cent rato for letter postage. To us the
times seem ripe, and the people are ready
for such a change. -

of candidates for mayor. Mr. Thistlowood
desires to be re-elected to the oflice which
he has held for the last two years, and it is
for the people to say whether or not his do

that he has not peforuied his duties aa he

Mr. II. J. Deal, a citizen of Charles

about the water melon production of south
east Missouri, gives the following interest
ing facts: " There will be

1,000 acres; from O.stner's Switch, 400 acres ;
from Blodgett, 40ft acres; and from Moiley,
