job that will last all this year, though he
will do his beBt to hurry the work through
in order to meet the urgent demand for
rooms for the patients, who are now living
in temporary sheds.
Late last night information of a mur
der committed at Vinconnos, Ind., reached
The Bulletin through the telephone
station number seventeen. Tho particulars
areas follows: Two men named Duffy
and Boycr, were standing on Second street
talking. The latter said to the former:
"Your hat is a d d poor one." Duffy re
plied: "That makes no difference
to you." Boyer thereupon suggestod
that ho could whip Dufly. which
the latter seemed to doubt and it was de
cided to go to tho banks of tho Wabash
river and "fight it out." They had gone
but a short distance when Boycr dropped
behind, drew a revolver and deliberately
shot Duffy in tho back, killing him almost
instantly. Boyer then flod across the river,
but was pursued by a number of citizens
and captured in a wheat field, whore ho
sought to hide himself, and lodgod in jail.
Much excitement prevails in tho city.
Beyer is known ma bad character.
Tho report of tho hospital of this city
for tho month of May is as follows : Num
ccrof patients from previous month, nine
teen; number admitted during month,
thirty-four; total, fifty-three. Number of
patients dischargod, twonty-nine; number
of deaths, five; balanco in hospital at tho
end of month, nineteen; number
of davB rolief was furnished,
six hundred and sixty-nine;
number of outside patients, eighty; num
ber of times relief was furnished to outside
patients, ono hundred. Number of appli
cants rejected, eight. The total amount of
money expended in the management of tho
hospital during the month was $720.47.
A Washington man had three photo
graphs of himself taken. Iu one he appeared
dressed as a woman ; in another as a well-to
do architect; in tho third as a spectacled
professor. Then ho Bent tho photographs
on to Fowler, for phrenological description.
He received in a fow days three charts. Tho
"architect" was described as an impulsive
person; of strong lung power, etc.; tho
"woman seemed to havo less lung power
than tho architect, and appeared "able to
convert nutritious materials into healthy
nutriment rapidly and abundantly." Tho
two wcro well adapted to marriage As to
the "professor," ho was described as unfit
to marry, being of uncongenial tempera
mcnt, etc. The joko is considered a largo
ono on phrenology.
Manifestly tho predictions so confi
dently made last week of a comparatively
early solution of tho problem at Albany
will not be fulfilled. The deadlock con'
tinucs, and there appears to bo no proba
bility of its yielding, and the only way
out of the difficulty is to adjourn. This, at
least, is a surface view of the case. There
are rumors of coquetting between the dem
ocrats and the chiefs of both factions, but
one not in tho secrets cannot judge what
they may amount to. The probability is
that after a few days' more balloting an
adjournment will be taken, the stalwarts
and democrats agreeing thereto. Tno
halfbrecds are at present not disposed to
favor adjournment, tor they fear that 'Con
kling's appeal to the peoplo may be con
ducted in alliance with Tammany, and the
result may be a legislature controlled by
Conkling and John Kelly. They prefer
the bird they already have in hand to any
unknown number that may be liable to
capture in next fall's bush.
The Taducah Enterprise speaks as
follows of the Broadway opera-house, con
ducted in that city under the management
of Mr. Harry Walker, of this city. All
that is said in praise of the institution may
be repeated with reference to the Theatre
Comiquo here: "To the regrets of tho
mass of the citizens of Paducah, the Broad
way opera-house closed its doors Saturday
night tor tho season to a good business and
appreciative audience, but we are reliably
informed that it will open again soon under
new management, and we are in hope it
will, for it has brought a great deal of trade
to our city, that would have gone else
where if there had not been a place of
amusement for them to go to and hero wo
will say in justice to the management of
tho Broadway opera-house that the criti
cisms on the performances there have been
unnccessnrily harsh, for wo know whereof
we write and can truthfully say that when
compared with similar performances in
other cities, large and small, that all have
been commendable. The self-constituted
critics of tho opera-house performance, we
aro constrained to believe, nave never
honored any of the exhibitions with their
Rev. T.J. Shores, the colored divine,
who has been making a tour of tho south,
reports that as a class the colored people
there arc doing well and Bcem satisfied with
their situation. Ho found that all those
who had not allowed themselves to bo lead
away from their homes by tho wild pronf-
ises of political demagogues wcrcyfn

who allowed themselves to be .Received
who left their easy employment at homo to
seek riches in Kansas or clswhcre and, dis
appointed and wretched, hd to return to
the country they had bee lead to desert,
were all in straightcnad circumstances.
Mr. Shores found many cblored men who
were comparatively independent of the
world, and who were renweted by their
white noighbors as they deorvod to be. no
found also that thcro was n the samo an
tagonisui existing bctwociK tho colored
and tho white popuTslion that
exists in tho north, which gks
lie to tho blatant politicians who seek to
make political capital for the dominai
party at every election, regardless ot what
material they use in doing so. If honest
men who go and come to and from the
much maligned southern Btatcs, whether
they bo republicans or democrats, would
lift up their voices and tell the truth when
they hoar unprincipled office holding
and office seeking rogues utter
vile slanders against the people of the
south, then there would soon bo no more
feelings ot constrainst bctweon the north
and south. If there wcro more T. J.
Shoreses and less rantankerous and mental
ly infinitiBimal John R. Thomases, tho
country would bo infinitely bettor off.
No violent demonstrations against the
life of young Albert Hayes wero made
night beforo last, although somo prepara
tions seem to havo been mado by a number
of mon. It was rumored long bofore even
ing that about fifteen men had been
brought over lrom Ballard county, Ken
tucky and instructed to make away with
the young criminal. At night crowds of
pooplo moved toward the court house in
tho expoctation of "scoing the fun" as
they expressed it, but they wero
all disappointed. A squad of men, all
masked, wero seen near tho now convent,
about two o'clock in tho morning, but it
seems that they were afraid to make the
attack, because of the presence of so many
spectators and officers. Officers Has Mar
tin and John P. Hogan, discovered five
suspicious looking strangers sitting on the
porch of Judge Baker's residence
about one o'clock in the morn
ing. They were some distance
away from the general crowd and were
completely blockading the door way.
Officer Martin, in order to obtain a closer
view of tho men, stopped suddenly in front
of them and started for the door, Baying to
his partner, Hogan, "I bclicvo I'll go in
hero awhilo." "I guess you won't,"
growled ono of the men, putting out his
hand and shoving tho officer back. This
was a challenge and the men were put un
der arrest. Upon their persons were found six
pistols and one was found on tho side
walk, having been thrown away by ono of
the men. After having been deprived of
their weapons, tho prisoners were marched
off to jail and were tried in Justice J. II.
Robinson's court yesterday, upon tho
charge of carrying weapons; with what re
sult will bo found under tho head of
"police items." Yesterday morning Mr. J.
Summcrwell discovered a new axe, a rope
with a noose on one end and a new ham
mer lying under tho sidewalk near Dr.
Bryant's residence, which, it is believed,
were the instruments that were to have
been used in the liberation and death of the
