The first of a series of musical concerts
came off at the Methodist church last night.

act more as an attraction to tho pconle

reason to complain.

der of tho HugenotH on Bartholomew's dav
in Paris 300 years ago. Tho whole civilized
J world should cry out against a brutal bar
barism which makes such atrocities possi
ble. It is a crime againBt the spirit of tho
age, so humanitarian and sympathetic
where tho poor and downtrodden are con
cerned. Mifs Mary Williamson was drowned
in a small pond near Monticello seminary,
Alton, n tho 3d lust. She and another
young lady were out on the pond in a small
bark of somo kind, which overturned with
the result as above.
Dr. Barr, the man who, some days
ago, assaulted Langden, editor of a Quincy
paper, for publishing an intended joke
about him, was fined ten dollars and costs,
the lowest fine in such coses. Tho editor
failed to prosecute tho Dr., probably be
cause ho thought he deserved tho flogging.
Tho other day 0 stranger entered a
storo in Bloomington and, exhibiting a
number of twenty dollar gold pieces, be
gan to toss ono of them up against the ceil
ing so that it camo down upon a glass
show case, breaking it. Tho merchant
hastily grabbed the coin and took out tho
valuo of the pane of glass, returning to tjie
apparently astonished stranger something
over fourteen dollars. The stranger left in
a " hurry and tho merchant congratulated
himself upon his luck in receiving pay for
his broken case. But it af
terwards proved that he crowed too soon,
for tho coin proved to bo counterfeit.
"What is a 'star route,' what are these
star mail routes which have afforded ma
tcrial and opportunity fur so much stealing
in the postoffice department?" This ques
tion from a subscriber needs attention, and
fortunately it is readily answered. Any
routes over which the United States mails
are carried by means other than railways
and steam vessels are 6tar routes, so-called
because on the records of the postal do
partment they are designated by an asterisk
or star. These routes are mostly in the
west and south, the mails being carried by
Bta'e coachos or on horse back. Some of
these routes are long, employing hundreds
of horses and many men, and where they
run through the Indian country aro often
operated with danger to life and property.
A short time ago the people of Spring
field engaged Engineer W. R. Coats to ex
amine the earth in and about tho city
with a view to ascertaining whether
or not pure water could bo obtained for the
uso of the citizens. The people wen
driven to this action by the extreme foul
ness of the water of the Illinois river, upon
which they chiefly depend for their water
supply. The engineer, in a lecture to the
people a few days ago, gave it as his opinion
that not more than fifty-six feet below the
surface of the earth a plentiful supply of
pure water could be obtained and suggest
ed mat a puouc wen, nity leet in ammeter
and ot the requisite depth, be built by tho
city at an expense of not more than twenty
thousand dollars. Thus the chief draw
back to Springfield's prosperity would be
Yesterday evening Pat Lally, while
under tho influence of liquor, became very
boisterous in an up town saloon, breaking
up funiture and making threats and passes
various persons in the place. A
woman of questionable repute, who
was also drunk, was likewise in the fracas
in some way and was said to have displayed
and handled a pistol in a rather reckless
manner. Tat. and 4he woman left the
place when they had somewhat cooled
down and came down town, followed by
Officers John Tyler and Pat Mahannv, who
arrested them near the corner of Fourteenth
street nnd Washington avenue. In their
attempt to take tho couplo to the
calaboose the officers had a
hard time, fur both resisted
for a time with all their might, but were
finally, after several blows were struck, in
duced to go along peaceably. Considera
ble excitement prevailed upon tho streets
for a time. Their trial will be had in
Magistrate Comings' court to-day.
A printer sat in his oiiice chair; his
boots were patched and his coat thread
bare; while his face looked weary and
worn with care. While sadly thinking of
business debt, old Morpheus slowly round
him crept, and before ho knew it ho sound
ly slept, and, sleeping, he dreamed that he
was dead, from trouble and toil his Bpirit
had tied, and that not even a cow-bell
tolled for the peaceful rest of his cow-hide
sole. As he wandered among the shades,
uud smoke and soreh of lower Hades, he
shortly observed an iron door that crcak
ingly swung on hinges ajar, but the en
trance was crossed by a red hot bar, and
Satan himself stood peeping out and watch
ing for travelers hereabouts, and thus to
tho passing printer spoko and with growl
ing voice tho echoes woke : "Como in,
my dear, it shall cost you nothing, and
never fear; this is tho place whero
I cook tho ones that uever pay their
subscription sums, for though in life they
may escape, they will find, when dead, it is
too lato; I will show you the place where I
melt them kVu with red hot chains and
scraps ot tin, ami also where I comb their
heads with broken glass and melted lead;
and if of refreshments they only think
there's boiling witter" for them to driak;
.here's the red-hot griud-stono to grind
down his nose, and red-hot rings to wear
on his toes; and if they mention they
don't like fre, I'll sew up their mouths
with rod-hot wire; and then, dear sir, you
should see them squirm while I roll thorn
over and cook to aturn."At these last words
tho printer awoko and thought it all a nrao-
ticul joke; but still at times, so real did it
socm, that ho cannot believe it was all a
dream; and often ho thinks, with a chuckle
and grin, of tho fatu of those who save their
tin and never pay tho printer.
From an item under tho head of "Real
Estato Changes " in this mornings Bulle
tin, it will bo seen that a large tract ot
land along the Mississippi levee from Fifth
Btreet to St. Mary's Park has been sold to
tho Cairo Transfer Company. This com
pany is composed of wealthy New Yorkers
who are all moro or less interested
in tho railroads running into this
city, and who have organized themselves
into this company for the purpose of trans
ferring cars from Missouri and Kentucky to
Cairo and at Cairo trom ono railroad onto
another. They will seek to obtain, or have
already obtainod, tho sole right to transfer
cars in a similar manner as tho ferryboat
company has the sole right to run a ferry,
and they will charge a certain amount for
each car so transferred. It is probable that,
upon the strip of land they have secured,
they will erect extensive machinery to
prosecute the transfer business.
The ordinance against the discharge of
fire arms within tho limits of tho city is be
ing too often violated of late in a very use
less manner. A man defending himself
against a dog or another assailant might be
considered as justified in violating tho or
dinance, but the habit of hunting wild
ducks and other game within the corpora
tion ought not to be tolerated. There aro
several very good reasons why it
should not be tolerated. First, it is in con
flict with the city ordinances; second, the
weapon discharged is mostly in the hands
of boys, who arc more or less careless with
it; third, citizens aro not safe in tho street
or in their homes because of such careless
ness; fourth, it is extremely annoying to
everybody, and fifth, because persons pros
trated upon a bed of sickness often receive
a shock from which they take a dangerous
relapse. We know of two cases where
the discharge of a weapon
in close proximity to residences
in solidcr persons who were just recovering
from a severe attack of nervous and brain
disease, gave them a dangerous set back,
which not only entailed additional costs
for medical aid upon the families, but near
ly resulted in the death to tho sick person.
The several cases of accidental shooting
amongyoung men and boys which happened
but a short time ago, would probably also
have been avoided had the ordinances against
tho discharge of fire arms within tho c t
beenmore vigorously enforced. An ordi
nance under and in accordance with
the State law recently passtd in tho legis
lature, prohibiting the carrying ot arms by
minors and strictly enforced, would liave'a
wholesome cft'ect upon the evil.
The republican papers all over the
country aro now bitter in their denuncia
tions ot Brady and thisganar of "Star Route"
swindlers. They have suddenly become very
virtuous and denounce the excuse made by
thu thieves, that they ucd the money to
carry Indiana fur the honest old God and
morality party, as not at all a justification for
the robbery. Now that the election is
over and an accident has discovered the
rottenness of the mail service of the coun
try republicans can seo no great necessi
ty for whitewashing the guilty parties and
feign a horror of the vile scounderols that
they have been nursing in their leprous
bosom for these many years, that would
almost cause the fiend of darkness him
self to believe that it was real and that he
was about to loose his firm hold upon the
party. Had this exposition been made
just before the last election the repub
lican press all over tho land would
have denounced it as a democratic trick
and the party bosses would have pitched
the scoundiel Brady, black with the filth
of his dishonesty, head foremost into the
kettle of republican investigation and
brought him forth beaming upon us in the
spotless purity of noblo manhood. But,
ala3 for Brady ! this is after an election.
The Republican party's lease of power has
yet several years to run and it
can afford to sacrifice him now.
But can tho party really be so cruelly
honest now as to punish, as he deserves, the
man who did so much lor its success?
Will it send Brady and his pals to tho
felon's cell and surrender Indiana, the
fruit of his felony, by which it swung itself
into power, to tho democratic party, to
which it rightfully belongs? Will it do
this? Would anything less than this sat
isfy unbending justice? The Bulletin
does not believe that the party will do
cither of these things ot its own freo
will from a lovo of honesty.
Time has shown that the
republican party is not troubled in the
least with that article. Time will show
that it is not now so troubled now. It may
bo forced, by public opinion, to do something
in the matter and will then turn another
John McDonald looso in tho country it
will make Brady the victim of its inborn
treachery. Treachery and dishonesty aro
tho two principal traits of the managers
of tho republican party and, in case of ne
cessity (which is not seldom) tho former is
always made to hido tho latter. In this
caso it will bo Been that, though it may. bo
compelled to tlm practico by convicting
Brady, it will, under no circumstances,
relinquish its hold upon tho plunder, the
samo being Indiana.

At the special meeting of
tho city council held in the
council chamber last evening some busi
ness of importance was disposed of. The
bonds of the newly appointed officers as
also those of some of liquor deal-'
ears were approved. Seveial 'bids for
gravel were also considered and referred
to tho appropriate committees. The
bids of the newspaper publishers of tho
city for tho city printing wero also opened
and tho contract awarded to The Bulle
tin, as its bid was the lowest by three dol
lars per month as compared with that of
tho Argus, and by six dollars per mouth
as compared with that of tho News. The
Bullettin'b bid was twenty-five dollars
per month; the Argus' twenty-eight and
the News' thirty-one.
A NEGRO SHOT.
At about half past twelve o'clock yester
day a negro named Jack Parker Bhot and
probably killed another negro named
Yancy Graves. Tho shooting took place
in a room in tho Wilcox's block, which has
a very questionable reputation, and, it is
said, was tho result of a quarrel. Immedi
ately after Graves was shot ho lett the
house and ran at lull speed toward the
paint storo of Mr. B. F. Blake, about a
square away, but fell just before he got
thero and lay la-lpless and in apparent
great agony until ho was ta
ken to his place of temporary
residence in one of tho
liltlo barracks on Ohio levee, between
Twelfth and Fourteenth streets, where we
learned late last night, he breathed his
Jack Parker, the man who did the shoot
ing, is well thought of by thoso who know
him best. He has been in the employ of
the Cairo City Gas company for over seven
years and has always been found to be very
peaceable and attentive to his duties.
of tho affair ot yesterday
he had called upon a
in Wilcox's block to
he had loaned her some time ago. While
he was speaking to her tho door was sud
denly pushed open and Graves entered with
a club in his hand, which he began to use
vigorously upon the woman, knocking her
down and then proceeded to attack him
(Parker), striking him over the head sev
eral times. He succeeded in shoving his
assailant away and, drawing a pistol, told
him to leave. Instead of doing
this Graves drew a pocket
knife and with it in one hand and the club
in the other, moved toward Parker who
then shot at him twice, the balls taking
effect in his assailant's abdomen. After
Graves had left, Parker went to his home
where he was caught in the act by chang
ing his clothing, preparatory to escaping,
perhaps, by Officer George Olmsted, who
lodged him in tho county jail.
Dr. Carter attended tho wounded man
about three o'clock in the afternoon and
gave it as his opinion that he could not live
four hours more. It was reported late
yesterday evening that the Doctor's predic
tion had been verified.
Yesterday afternoon at two o'clock p. m.,
