Paducah News: "Saturday evening
last Mr. Mat.JBaldwin, second clerk of the
steamer Dextor, was stabbed severely and
perhaps seriously by a deck passenger on
the boat. From tho information as it
comes to tho News it seoma that Mr. Bald
win went on the deck to collect passage
from tho deck passengers. He, in some
unknown way, got into a quarrell with a
man nanio unknown and knocked tho
fellow down and jumped upon him. Tho
fellow, it is said, immediately drow a knifo
and plunged it into Mr. Baldwin's side
twice, making painful and ugly wounds.
Tho difficulty occurred below Golconda,
III., and when the boat renched that port
the man was Jailed and a physician called
to attend the wounds of Mr. Baldwin. Tho
physicion went with Mr. Baldwin to Evans-
villo and in returning homo on the Hop
kins yesterday, said he was badly cut if not
fatally hurt. Mr. Baldwin has but lately
taken a position on the Lower Ohio, but is
better known on the upper part of tho river,
where ho has boated for some timo."
Tho steamers Idlewild aud Osceola
Bello were destroyed by fire at the wharf
at Memphis, Tenn., at seven o'clock, on tho
81st hist. The fire originated in the lamp
locker of the Idlewild, and rapidly en
veloped her. Tho Osceola Bello was lying
in closo proximity to the Idlewild and
could not be removed in time to save her.
From the Globe-Democrat we learn that
the Idlewild was owned by Capt. John I)
Adams, of Little Rock, and Capt. James II.
Reese, of Pittsburg. They recently pur
chased her lor 15,000, which was much
below her real value. One month ago sho
was sont to Paducah to bo repaired, and re
turned on Thursday looking as bright and
new as when she was first floated. They
expended about 0,000 in refitting her.
Sho was eleven years old and formerly ran
in the Evansville and Cairo trade. The
exact amount of her insurance is not known,
but is thought to be about $16,000, placed
in Evansville and Cincinnati offices. Sho
was to depart to-morrow aftornoou for

The barge system for the transportation
of grain from the ports of St. Louis and
Cairo to the sea is a matter that has -excite
somo aiscussion iy representative men in
St. Louis. Chicago, New York and other
citities. Tho chief objection to tho idea
comes from railroad corporations that have
for these many Jycars, had a monopo
ly ot the transportation of grain overlam:
to INew iork, from whence it was sent to
its destination by sea. Lately, when it was
discovered that a very large per ceutum of
the rain raitjed jn the wcst wa bcln 8cnt
to Europe in barges by way ot St. Louis,
Cairo and New Orleans,btcause that was by
far tho cheapest route, the trunk lines run
ningeast.niade a desperate effort, by the re
duction in freight rates, to regain the trade
they had lost and they have, to some
extent succeeded. But this gain
was obtained at a loss to themselves. It does
not require much figuring to ascertain that
the railroads cannot permanently compete
with the Mississippi river iu the transporta
tion of freight and it is only a question of
a little time when the great bulk of the
western grain intended for foreign markets
will be sent down the Mississippi river in
barges, and Cairo be one of the great grain
centres of the country. Foreseeing this
event the Illinois Central railroad company
is erecting its two-hundred thou6and-dollar
elevator here, one of tho largest concerns
of the kind in the country, with a capacity
of huudreds of thousands of bushels of
grain. The company is not composed of
simpletons and this action on their part may
be taken as conclusive evidence of the
truth of the statements above made in so
far as they prophesy good tor Cairo
It is admitted, of course, that the question
is one of great importance to railroad com
panies, and deserves all the discussion to
which it is subjected by them and their rep
rcsentatives; but from all this discussion it
docs not appear that, to deprive them, to a
great extent, of the privilege of transport
ing the western grain to the eastern ports
for reshipment to Europe from there, woul
yiuu Hu ruinous iu me rauroaas as some
people profess to believe and as the railroad
companies themselves seem to fear. In an
interesting article on the present and future
grain trade ot bt. Louis, published in the
Globe-Democrat, of that city, a few days
ago, a Mr. L. U. Rcavis takes occasion to
express some views on the question : "Will
tho development of the barge system for
the transportation of the graiu to tho sea
board by way of tho Mississippi river seri
ously damage the business of the railways."
On this point Mr. Reavis says:
"And first, as to tho existing railroad
system ot the west and northwest: Will
its material and financial diobdocis be pre
jupiciallyatlectod by tho diversion of tho
export trade Uur belief that thev will
not be may be uniipie, and perhaps may be

fltcd hy tho water linos the railroads them
selves share in tho general prosperity, and
instead of their being any antagonism be
tween water lines and railways, they are
really helpful of each other. There may
be, and probably will be, some friction
while railroads are adopting their policy to
meet the changed condition of affairs, but
the elasticity of the American people is
proverbial, and the managers of our various
transportation lines will soon find new
sources of revenue to compensate them for
any diversion of traffic which tho careful
and impartial observer of railroad matters
must admit to be more imaginary than
There is a great deal of truth in what
Mr. Reavis says : "The railways will read
ily adapt themselves to the changes that
will gradually take place in the exportation
of grain as the river route grows in favor.
The country is rapidly growing in wealth
and the railways will find that they will
always have all the business they can at
tend to. Tho short lines, leading from tho
grain districts to the river, will, of course,
still do a profitable business in the trans
portation of grain. The business of tho
greet trunk lines may suffer a little at first,
but tho demands of a steadily developing
country will soon compensate them for any
damage they may .sustain by the loss of
their grain business."
