The many friends in this city of Mr.
T. W. Fitch will regret to learn that when
he arrived home in Oneida, New York, a
few days ago, he found his aged father
dead and hurried. The old gentleman was
a minister of the gospel and much beloved
in the community in which lie lived; ho
had been ill but a short timo and so little
did those around him believe that his ail
ment would end fatally, that they did not
inform Mr. Fitch of his fathers' illness at
all, hence tho lutters' painful surprise upon
bis arrival home.
"Billeo Taylor" drew a very good
crowd at the opera house last night. The
Fay Templeton troupe presented this very
popular play in a manner that gave much
pleasure to the audience. No one present
could fail to appreciate the efforts and tho
natural talents for acting of each member
of tho company, and this appreciation was
frequently shown in hearty applause The
matinee in the afternoon was also well at
tended. On the whole the troupe has had
a very profitable 6tay in this city, and has
added considerably to its popularity.
The opera house company is in corres
pondence with Miss Clara Louisa Kellog
with a view to coming to an understanding
with her concerning an engagement for the
opera house in this city. A correspondence
has also been opened with the business man
ager of the Muldoon picnic company, one
of the best amusement companys in the
country, but it is not yet settled that cither
of these parties will be here, It is under
stood, however, that "Hazel Kirke" will be
produced on the 31st instant and that other
good companies will appear in the mean
time. There was a notable little event at
Washington hall on Wednesday night
which was almost entirely lost sight of by
reason of the grand opening of the opera
houce. It svn ball of the t'assino
society of which so much had been heard.
In spite of the all absorbing event which
was to come off the next day and for which
everybody was saving money and sharpen
ing their appetite, there was a very nice
little gathering at Washington hall and
there was also much real enjoyment. It
was the society's fourteenth anniversary and
was worthily celebrated by those present.
The Robin, a small towboat, which
left here Friday afternoon with one barge
of lumber in tow, burnt to the water's edgo
Friday night, about twelve o'clock, a few
miles up the Mississippi river, near De
Gelder's landing. The watchman discover
ed the fire first, but before anything could
e done, she sunk. Tho tiro originated in
the hold, under the boilers. The barge of
umber was paved. Tho Robin was owned
y Peter Conrad, of St. Louis; the Robin
was built at Louisville by Pink Varble, and
rebuilt by Conrad about a year ago. It is
not known whether tnere was any insurance
on her or not.
-Tho Wabash railroad office building,
on Ohio levee, is all torn up internally.
The counters, desks and screens are scatter
ed all over tho room below, The reason of
this disturbance is that the offices are be
ing remodeled aud consolidated. A straight
counter is to run along near tho centre of
the room, similar to that in tho Illinois
Central railroad office, and tho door, now
opening in the centro of tho front, is to be
closed and the ono to tho right side is to bo
used for ingress and egress. Tho general
freight agent's office and train master's
office, which aro now on tho second floor of
the building, will bo brought down to the
first floor, so that all tho officers of tho com
pany here may bo on tho first floor for tho

President Arthur has evidently very
little regard for the quotation, "there is no
fury like a woman scorned," frlo.lio U
fortified himself against that fun; for it is
announced that he has determined that in
the future no women shall be appointed to
offices of trust under the government. This
rule will apply to such offices as post offices,
pension agencies, etc., and will not, of
course, have any bearing on positions in the
lepartments. President Arthur's reasons,
as given by one of his friends, aro that the
post office department has had a great deal
of trouble as the result of appointing wom
en to office, and that such appointments
have caused a good deal of dissatisfaction
in the party. This rule will affect a num
ber of post offices, the pension agency at
Chicago, etc. It is, perhaps, safe to say
that President Arthur would not have done
this had woman the right touso the ballot.
They would then be a power in tho land
whose anger, or even displeasure, ho
would not have had the courage to arouso.
For several days passed there have
been rumors in the streets to the effect that
small-pox had made its appearance in the
city. Cases have been reported to exist in
various portions of tho city, which.it was
said, resulted from one case which ended
fatall in the hospital a few days ago.
These rumors are, so far as can bo learned
with any degree of certainty, foundationless.
Tho hospital case referred to was a river
man, who had received an injury in tho
head, which, having been neglected, began
to fester, caused fever, and other disorders
coming in connection with this, finally
caused death. The caso reported to exist in
a little shanty, at tho corner of Thirteenth
and Walnut streets, is entirely fictitious,
there being not even a caso of sickness in
tho house. Until now Cairo has been as
healthy as ever freo from all diseases of a
virulent character and there is no imme
diate prospect that she will bo visited in
this way. But thero is a possibility which
noeds to bo guarded against by every citi
zen, and there is no better way known to
Bcionce in which to do this thun by vac
cination. Therefore, wo say, vaccinate I
