The aged father ot tho Messrs. Thistle
wood in tins city died at Harrington, Del.,
on last Sunday afternoon. A dispatch to
that effect arrived hero soon after, asking
tho relations of tho family in this city to
come and attend the funeral, but as it was
impossiblo to get thore in timo for tho
funeral it was not complied with. The de
ceased, Mr. Benj. Thistlewood, was
seventy-five years old at tho time of his de
mise and left behind him, besides a numer
ous family of children, a wife of nearly the
same ago with himself. The old man was
sick but a short time before death ensued.
Tho many friends of Messrs. Thistlewood
hero will Bympathizo with them in their be
reavement. Monday night a number of tho digni
taries of tho much-talked-of Wabash sys
tem of railroads arrived in tho city via tho
Cairo and Vinccnncs railroad. Tho party,
consisting of between eight and ten men,
was headed by Col. John C. Gault. They
rnado tho trip over tho C. & V. for the pur
pose of examining the road previous to
considering the proposition of con
solidation. The train upon which they
came made extraordinarily fast time from
Vinccnncs clear down, going at the rato of
about sixty-five miles per hour for quite a
distance. Tho party visited Bird's Point
yesterday afternoon to view the many im
provements in progress there and left on

A little old man dressed in a blue, cm
broidered, sailor shirt, a military cap,
seedy gray coat, and greasy striped pants
held in doubtful position by a leather belt
with a "U. S." buckle in front, came down
from St. Louis with his wife a few days
ago and took tho Iron Mountain train hero
for Charleston, Mo, This was last week
some time. Last Monday he came back
8lonc,without mouoy, Irionds, baggage, but
with a broken nose and a ravenous appetite
yet, withal, an agrceablencss of disposition
that was in strange contrast with the sor
rowful talo ho told. Ho suUL'ht out and
soon found police headquarters, whero he
found Chief Myers, Officer Olmsted and
others itito whoso cars ho poured out the
story of his troubles which was plentifully
seasoned with not very flattering references
to the authorities of Charleston. His namo,
ho said, was W. R. Jeremiah ; ho served the
United States, both on land and water, and
had attained to the rank of lieutenant,
Ho was also president of tho boot-blacks
union at Springfield, 111., whero ho was at
homo and ruled with a high hand. About
two years ago he, his wifo and an adopted
eight-year-old girl camo through Charles
ton and whilo stopping in that town, one
"Bill" Bowlcn, an undertaker, forcibly
took the child away from them, claiming
that they (Jermiah and his wife) had stolen
her. All explanations and entreaties and
threats on the part of Jeremiah
failed to induco Bowlen to give
up the child and finally tho bereaved
step parents wero compelled to continuo
on thoir way alono. Last week they ro
turned to Charleston lor the purpose of
making a second attempt to reclaim the
child of which they had been so ruthlessly
deprived. But the result was that Mr.
Jeremiah was arreslcd,uiid when be remon
strated, struck iu tho faco and dragged to
tho basilic, while his devoted wifo followed
him to tho door of the cell with wringing
hands tearful eyes and loud wails" at the
gross maltreatment to which her worse half
was being subjected. In tho dark cell Mr.
Jeremiah remained a night and a day with
out a drop to quench his thirst or a crumb
to allay his burning hunger. Alone, save
tho vermin which crawled on the clammy
walls and over tho rudo cot; in darkness,
save the ono ray of light which forced it
self through the bars of a small window
which tho prisoner, owing to his
diminutive stature, . could . not
reach; in total silence, save the squeoking
of rats at war and tho dull foot steps of an
occasional passer-by; hungry, thiraty and
with his brain on fire at tho insult of which
ho was tho holpless victim and totally

bis life, he lay in the dungeon, crying only
for his liberty ami nothing more. The
mayor heard him at last, talked to him
through tho win-low and, learning tho pris
oner's sad story, ."deased him and kindly
warned him to fly to linger not in the
vain hope of even seeing his wife but to
fly the town immediately by the nearest
route and unobserved, lest lie be recaptured
and guillotined. Mr. Jeremiah flew; he
reasoned well that, having lcen rob
bed first of his child, next of his wifo by
tho Charleston people, he stood in
great danger of being robbed of
himself next and, though old in years, yet
not a match in physical combat with an
ordinary fifteen-year-old boy, and having
left bis sword behind because he was on a
peaceful errand, ho concluded that the
best manoever ho could accomplish was a
precipitate retreat; and he didn't stop re
treating until he got within tho impemt ta
ble earthen fortifications surrounding Cairo.
But, as would most any man who has been
robbed of lus wife and child, and himself
thrown into prison without cause, fiod and
drink, he thirsts for ri.veni'e. While elo
quently reciting his many glorious achiev
mcnts on the battle fields and as president
of tho Springfield boot-blnck union, ho
often interrupted himself by pathetic re
ferences to his lost wife and child and fear
ful imprecations against the peoplu
of Charleston. He will go
to St. Louis, invoke tho aid of the military
of the state and with sword by his side,
epaulets on his shoulders and spurs on his
heels, backed by a commission from the
governor and by the millitia of the stato he
will return to Charleston, "court-martial
the whole d d town" and carry off his wife
and child in triumph, consigning their
whilom captors to the dungeon where he
has recently suffered. May ho succeed in
his noble efforts to cure the people of
Charleston of their high handed persecu
tion of innocent little strangers.
