- All but about six thousand dollars of
the money realized by the city from the
sale of Railroad street lots has been used
in the improvement of said street, as was
originally ordered by the council. One
half of this six thousand dollars has been
transfered to another fund which was run
ning Short, so that three thousand dollars
still remain.. There is some prospect, how
ever, that this Bix thousand dollars will
again be mado full and that the whole will
be used in filling Railroad street up to a
level with the cross streets at the points
where it connects with them.
A number of responsible citizens, who
have ample means and who proverbially

everyone knows, is a large coach of
peculiar and comfortable construction,
which runs easy and rides easy, requires no
tracks and can therefore run to any part of
the city without tracks. These coaches
are being profitably used in a number of
largo citica and compete successfully with
the street railways.

Three attempts were made to fire the
steamer Ariadne on her down trip and
while she was between this city and Union
town Monday. Fireballs composed of cot
ton and oil were lighted, one at the stem,
one at the bow and anothor amidships.
They wcTe discovered and tho blszu put out
before any damage was aone. Several par
ties were suspected but the attempt has not
yet been reliably fixed on anyone- The
boat is now lying here awaiting her turn
to go on the ways for repairs. There were
many different rumors afloat regarding the
attempt to burn her. One is that it was
tho work of parties who held a grudge
against tho line to which sho belongs be
cause they were defeated in a suit for 50,-
000 against the line, brought in Louisville
some time ago, the aforesaid suit resulting
from a collision in which a boat belonging
to the parties was sunk and lost. Another
is that it was the work of a man recently
discharged from tho boat Which, if eith
cr, of these stories are true, we cannot say.
Ladies it you want perfect fitting, ele
gant and durable common sense shoes, go

In tho Shan nessy examination Tuesday,
unlike the Hays examination, all tho wit
nesses present for the prosecution were ex
amined, and it appears that their testimony
was not as favorable to tho people as tho
enemies of tho defendant might have
wished., Those enemies believe that, if tho
prosecuting attorney found that tho
testimony of his own witnesses would go
against him, ho should have dono as was
done in (ho nays case, withhold the testi
mony. In other words tney believe that
the prosecuting attorney should do all with
in Ids power to convict a defendant, even
to the extent of withholding truthful testi
money. They seem to forget that a police
cmirt should be a court of justice, (which
in many cases it is not), and that in order
that a man may receive justice? it is ncc-
essray that all the truth should bo known
to the court. The primary object of the
prosecuting attorney, or any other attorneys,
should not be to convict or to clear,, butjto
have justice done; and, therefore, either
wonldjie doing- wrong if he withheld Im
portant truthful testimony, simply because
it would injure his side of the case." That
this b oftou Bone , to be deplored.
-Thn attention of Mayor Thistle wood and
Marshal Myers was yesterday called tft the
fact thut thn track of the street railroad,
where it turns tho corner, on Twenty
Eighth street is raised , considerably
abovo the level of tho street, that is, one
sido of tho track is so raised, in order to
prevent the cars from jumping tho track
every time they turn tho corner. Their
attention was also called to the fact that
the company was in ' thn act of having
Fourth street similarly obstructed for tho
same. reason. The officers gave tho matter
their attention, notified the proper repre
sentatives of the company that
they were violating tho or
dinance, and received assurances
from them that the ordinances would bo
complied with and the track lowered to iis
lawful level. A heavy iron rail, firmly
placed along the inner side of the outer
rail, as far as it turns around a corner, will,
as tho managers of the street railway prob
ably know, prevent the cars from jumping
the track as wcN as raising one rail would,
and would not bo a violation of the ordi
nances. A couplo of young fellows have been
in the city for some time, endeavoring to
obtain the permission of Marshal Myers
and the mayor to ruu what the young
men call a baseball game, which consists
of throwing a ball at a number of rag
babies, set up on a horizontal bar against a
large canvass. The man who strikes a
baby with a ball and knocks it down, is en
titled to a cigar, or another throw. The
marshal very properly looks upon this as a
game of chance, which comes under the
head of games forbidden by the ordinances.
He reasons, w ith the best of logic, that if a
man may throw a ball for a cigar he may
throw dice or rings for a dollar bill, there
fore, he says, the game is gambling. This
is but one of a large number of contrivances
with which persons have come to tii
marshal of lute, desiring to be permitted to
run it during the days that the circuses
will exhibit here; but the marshal
has uniformly refused bis permission and
given the proprietors to understand that
they would be prosecuted if they attempt
ed to exhibit their contrivances. Gambling
in this city has considerably abated with-
ja.jUje;te,PieW months, owiug to vigorous
action-oju the part of the officers, aud it is
tuAfftJtNCrnot wise to permit strangers to
couieliWe and arouse again the mania for
that disgraceful ami ruinous art.

its big herd of Giraffes, the only Polar

Monday night, about seven o'clock,
when the steamer FannieTatum landed at
Metropolis on her down trip to take aboard
a large lot of plow handles, a row occurred
between the secsnd mate of the steamer
and one of the musters, during which the
former received an ugly gash in tho lower
right Bide of the abdomen and the latter
was shot dead. The crew had gone ashore
o load the handles, and it Beems that the
dead negro gave the mato occasion to re
buke him and order him to be more active,
which the negro roughly resented and
which induced him to call for his time.
iVngerod at this, tho mate moved towards
him with his hand upon his hip, saying,
"I'll give you your time, g d you."
The negro received his knife, inflicting the
wound aforesaid, when the second mate
drew his pistol and shot him dead. This
occurred on shore. The second mate was
placed under arrest and, with the blood
runuing freely from his fearful wound, was
marched off to jail, where ho now is await
ing his preliminary examination. An in
quest was held over the body of the negro
immediately after. Nearly the entire crew
quit the boat and another had to bo em
ployed, together with a new Becond mate,
which caused tho boat to be delayed until
midnight of Tuesday.

Several very contradictory accounts
of the tragedy at Metropolis are out, which
is duo to thft fact that the officers on the
s'eamer Fannie Tatum, whoso hands were
engaged in the fracas, refused to
suy anything about it. The account pub
lished in another column is given upon the
authority of a passenger on tho Tatum who,
though not an eye witness to tho affair,
arrived upon tho scene after tho negro had
been shot, and saw tho dead man. Ho
gathered his information from tho negroes
standing around who had been eye witness
es to the whole bloody enactment. But
Captain Taylor, of the steamer Gus Fowler
says, that from what ho could learn from
pcoplo at Metropolis, appears that a deck
hand on the Tatum was shirking his duty,
that tho second mate went aft and brought
him out, that another negro interfered and
"shot off his mouth" in tho deck hand's bo
half, that the second mate and this negro
then came to blows, during which tho form
cr was severely cut in tho abdomen, and
that thereupon tho watchman, who was a
relative of tho second mate, drew his ro
volvor and shot tho negro dead. Whether
this or the story published elsewhere is truo
is not positively kuown ; hut that the affair
involved some of tho officers of the boat is
evidontfrom tho silonco maintained by,
them, also from the fact that tho boat ' had

A letter from Mr. Travers I) miel to
Mayor, N. B. Thistlewood, dated atClarks
ville, Tennessee, October 15th, states that
the writer has made arrangements in New
York City to receive the money for build
ing the Cairo water works, but he still in
sists upon the extension of the time to
February 15th, next year, for, he says, ho
can not obtain pipe before January. Ho
also says that lie does not consider the
franchises granted him by the city as a
good investment; yet he desires to fill the
contract "as best he can." Tho report of
the council committee- to which Mr.
Daniel's petition was referred, which was
published in yesterday's BirM.KTiN, meets
fairly the objection to tho time of com
mencement, which Mr. Daniel interposes,
when it says that "a very large amount of
work must bo done before the said con
tractor can have any use for either water
pipe or stand pipe. Tho excava
tions aud laying of the foundations, crib,
etc., must certainly take up almost the ex
tension asked for." Mr. Daniel's bint that
ho does "not consider the franchises a good
investment," is very untimely, nnd should
have been given during his consultations
with the committee which framed tho con
tract, to every provision of which bo con
sented before it was adopted by tho com
mittee. The objection formerly mado by
him, that tho ground would not furnish a
sufficiently ilrui foundation for a stand pipe
two hundred feet high, he
lias himself admitted to have been
not well taken; so that the only points
of difference between him and tho council
are : The speed of tho piston of tho pump,
tho size of tho water pipes and the exten
sion of time. As the latter objection is en
tirely unjustifiable, only two remain that
are of any real weight. These two "objec
tions, if met by tne council as Mr. Daniel
desires they shall bo, would enable him to
save thousands of dollars by supplying a
smaller, less powerful pumping apparatus
and laying smaller water pipes, and there
fore Mr. Daniel's demands in this respect
are unreasonable. It is truo, ho assorts
that 'neither would affect tho efficacy of
service: but for this wo have only his word,
which,Tinimpoachod, of course, still seoms
to bo contradicted by tho results which, It
appears to a reasonable mind, must follow
tho changes suggested by him.
