that night before last the judge's storo at
that place was broken into and robbed of
a large lot ot general merchandise, amount
ing in value to about one hundred and
fifty dollars. A white skiff is also missing
from the river bank, which leads to tho
belief that the parties loaded it down
with the plunder and rowed away.
The robbers are expected down here some
time to-day. City Marshal L. H. Myers is
on the lookout for them, and will not fail to
capture them if they make their appear
Circuit court convened yesterday
morning and disposed of a great deal ot
chancery business la fact the docket was
nearly cleared up. It has now adjourned
until July when a term for criminal busi

timely service of the papers. It will now
como up in the September term,
and in the meant! mo Mr. Cunningham is

that he is only one of two hundred and
ninety-one that are afillctcd in like manner.

Tho grain traffic of tho Mississippi last

the float will be largely increased. It is
boliovcd that tho season's traffic this year
will approach 100,000,000 bushels. Tho
entire movement of grain to tho seaboard
last year was 230,000,000 bushels. This
division of tho traffic with railroads East
is already making itself felt in tho railroad
In his last letter The Bulletin's reg
ular Washington correspondent says: "Our
present and prospective relations with Mcx
ico arc being mado a study by the secretary
of state. He sees the probability that difficul
ties will ariso from the vast amount of our
capital now being invested in that country,
and from tho emigration which is just be
ginning but which promises to becomo
great. While this government is not in
any way connected with these movements,
and congress wisely ignorod the request of
Captain Eads to guarantee the bonds for
his marine railway across Mexican territory,
the secretary knows that we may at any
moment be called upon to protect our citi
zens in Mexico. The turn of affairs is so
sudden and unprecedented that the admin
istration in tho event of trouble, will have
to work out an entirely new course of ac
tion." Ho says further: "Secretary Blaine
and Sir Edward Thornton, the British min
ister, have concluded negotiations by which
the British government is bound to pay
15,000 sterling to the United States, to
indemnify American fishermen who suffer
ed loss by the Fortune bay outrage."
About eleven o'clock night before last
the young negro, who commited the outrage
upon Mrs. Kobler, was captured at his
home, at the corner of Twenty-ninth and
Sycamore streets. Sheriff Hodges, Marshal
Myers and Officer John Tyler were engaged
in the hunt and it was greatly due to the
latter that the fellow was discovered
and captured as soon as he was.
The officers had but very little clue to
work upon and therefore deserve much
credit lor making the capture with such
dispatch. The young wretche's name is
Albert Hayes; he is quite block, weighes
about a hundred and fifty pounds and is
about nineteen years of age. He has
tarred a term la tho state reform aohnnl,
from which ho was discharged about
last Christmas. Yesterday in the
presence ot Dhenn iiodges and
Marshal Myers he mado a full confession of
his crime, which coincides almost entirely
with the account published in yesterday's
Bulletin; with tho exception that he
denies having dragged his victim to the
pond by the hair of her head. The wounds
about her head, he said, were caused by
her fall. His prelminary trial will probably
come off to-morrow.
The failure ot the school board to re
elect Prof. G. G. Alvord as superintendent
of the Cairo public schools is a matter that
is not without some weight.
Every important change with respect to the
public schools must be a matter of grave
public concern, and therefore it is to be
hoped that each member of the board pon
dered will before casting his vote for,
or against a change in tho office of super
intendent of the public schools. That this
was done, and that the change was made,
solely becnuse it was thought to be
to the interest of the public that it
should bo made, we have no doubt;
for the members of the board are all estim
able gentlemen who can lay aside all feel
ings in conflict with the public good when
occasion requires. But it there is any
ground for the belief that the interests of
the Cairo public demand a chango ot man
agement in tho schools, then that ground
must be found outside of thoso schools.
For, so far as wo know, no change
could bo mado in them that would
improve the character either with respect
to their management or general reputation.
That there aro those who believe to the
contrary who think that a general revolu
tion in tho manner of conducting the
schools for the last few years, would be not
only an improvement, but is an absolute
necessity in ordor that they may maintain
their high name abroad, is true; but there
have always been these. No superintendent
of the Cairo public schools has ever man
agod them to suit everybody. The reason
for this tact is to be tound in that other
fact (and a dcplorablo fact is, too,) that
Cairo school superintendents havo always
been of the earth earthy. They were hu
man beings and, like other human beings,
they were unablo to anticipate the wishes
of each and every one of tho patrons of
tho institutions over which they had
control. In this respect Protossor Alvord
has been like his predecessors, but, we
believe that he haB also boon like the best
of his predecessors, in that ho has given
entire satisfaction to the majority of those
who patronlzod tho schools. Tho reason I
for desiring a change, therefore, is hardiy
to be looked for in tho management of the
schools, but is probably only a fixed idea
that a chango of some kind would bo
desirable just about this time.
Whatever may have prompted the board in
this action wo hope that it will have no
reason to regret it and, it it docs not recon
sider its vote, secure in Prof. Alvord's place
a gentleman fully as competent as ho lias
shown himself to be.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
About ten o'clock, last night, while an
engine on the Cairo & Vinccnncs railroad
was backing up the track with two cars,
and whilo in front of Schuh's drug store, a
boy, about sixteen years of ago, named
George Mcrrian, attempted to jump upon
tho cow-catcher of tho cngino, but loosing
his footing, narrowly escaped death. Be
sides loosing tho fingers of his right hand
by the cars passing over them he sustained
some very serious bruises.
Stunned by a blow ho had received on
the head, ho lay beside tho track for some
time, but was finally carried to the office of
Drs. Parker, near by, where all the fingers
were amputatod near tho hand except tho
little one, which was amputated only as far
as the nail extended. Upon examination
it was found that tho kneo-cap of tho left
leg was broken and that tho leg was so
badly bruised that amputation will proba
bly bo necessary. The other injuries sus
tained are of minor consequence.
The boy is a step-son of Mr. Phil Brown
and is said to bo employed in the hardware
and tin store of F. M. Warren.
