A collision on the Illinois Central ruil-
road, just above Cetitralia, was the causo of
a delay of tho evening passenger train on
that road on Wednesday. Tho accident
was caused by an open or imperfect switch.
A train had side-tracked at the point named
and another train coming along jumped
the main track and ran into tho train on

considerable property, but no loss of life.
The down train which was to have arrived

In the circuit court yesterday the argu
ment in tho case of Jones vs. tjio Illinois
Central railroad company was concluded,
and tho case given to the jury about four
o'clock in the afternoon. About nine o'clock
last night tho jury had Hot yet found a ver
dict, and so far (is could bo lmtroed, was
badly hung and tho prospect of its finding
a verdict at all were not very flattering.
This case gotten out of court for the time
being, another case, that of Mrs. Juno
fjiiuhey vs. the Illinois Central railroad
company, was taken up. Mrs. Lindsey is
administratrix of the estate of her husband,
who was lulled Rome time ago near tho
junction while in tho employ of tho com
pany. In this case a jury had been em
paneled, aud tho case opened before court
tidjournsil to convene again this morning.
largo company of ladies and gentle
men gathered ut the residence of Dr. C. W.
DunniniJlnst Light to participate In tho
pleasures provided for them -by tho ladies
of tho Episcopal church. There were lito
rary exercises at first, which were in truth
a feast of reason and a How of Bout, and
amused and entertained tho largo compa
ny highly. These 'woro followed by re
frwthimmt and a general pleasant talk all
around, which lasted about an hour; and
after this there was an hour or two of
music and dancing, tho amusement of nil
thi! most amusing, and in this way moro
tnn half tho night wo spent. One might
auppuw that the ugly weather would havo
insured a small attendance, but it did not.
The house was full of both young and
grown people, all of whom entered fully
into the spirit of the pleasures provided.
A moro pleasant entertainment or one more
appreciated by those in attendance has,
perhaps, nover taken place.
Paducah News: "The News is in re
ceipt of information of a bold robbery
which occurred Saturday night last near
Princeton, Caldwell county. It is reported
that on tho night namod a party of some
six men, masked aud blackod, went to tho
houso of Mr. J. M. Wolff, a prominent
farmer of Caldwell county, and robbed the
houso of 3,000 in silver. Two of the
rascals entered tho houso whiltf' four stood
guard on tho outside. At tho time Mr.
Wolff was from home and Mrs. W. and
children were forced to look quietly on and
see the men' ransack the house. In their
hurry to get away tho robbers overlooked
$500 in paper, which waa close to from
where they got tho silver. As soon as the
robbery becamo known thoro was consider
b'o excitement and great indignation. Up
to last accounts all the efforts made to
overtake or discover tho bold perpetrators
of the deed had not been overtaken or de
tected. There have been now seven cases of
small-pox and varioloid in this city; one of
them proved fatal, tho others have cither
entirely recovered, or ure recovering. All
of these cases were treated, or originated, in
tho mariuc hospital station, from whenco
they were subsequently convc)cd to tho
pest-house. As a natural result tho hos
pital must be infected by the disease und
must be liable to communicate it to per
sons going to and from there. Tho hos
pital is situated in the immediate neighbor
hood of two schools, where upwards of four
hundred children congregate every day.
If this much could bo said of any other
building or institution in the city would
the csty board of health look idly on? Is
tbero any good reason why the hospital,
which has no.v almost assumed the qualities
of a pest house, should be exempt from the
rules suggested by common senso and ex
perience for the treatment of premises
infested with a contagious disease? Is
there any good reason why tho hospital
should not be quarantined against? Will
those whose business it is please revolve
these questions in their minds, arid act in
accordance with conclusions arrived at
after thorough and intelligent considera
tion? Another Paducah man was taken caro
of by the Cairo authorities yesterday. His
name is Meyer and ho is a brick mason,
who came here from Paducah a few days
ago to work on Mr. B. McManus' new
brick businef s house; but being sick he
could not work. He did not haj small
pox as thu other Paducah man, Black, has;
his ailment was fits severe, periodical at
tacks of fits; and he was found by Chief
Myers and Officer Tyler, lying on the brick
sidewalk, at the corner of Eighth street and
Cuinmercial avenue, . Wednesday night,
about eight o'clock. Ho presented a hor
rible sight; thick white foam was running
from his mouth aud every niusclo of his
body twitching violently, throwing his body
about upon the pavement in a manner that
must have resulted in serious injury to the
man but for the timely assistance of Chief
Myers and the officer. Those attempted to
hold thu man down in order to prevent him
from butting his brains out, but thoy found
it necessary to summon t.vo moro men to
assist them, and even then it was a difficult
task to hold him down. Tho chief called
for water and brandy, which was with dif
ficulty administered unto tho poor fellow
during his moments of quint. Thomau had
four or five such tils befon ho was in a
condition to be moved. Tlwn Chief Myers
sent him, in company with tho officer, to a
restaurant to bo given a cup of hot coffee
and something to cat, and then sent him to
a place of shelter for thu night. Yesterday
tho chief went to several of our merchants
und succeeded in collecting three or four
dollars, with which he purchased a ticket
for Paducah and sent the man homo on the
steamer Guh Fowler yesterday afternoon.
Meyer says he has a brother and other
relatives living in Paducah.
Scvoralof tho businessmen and otfier
cili.ons of Cairo havo violated the law
against the killing, purchase and salo of

shall stand committed to the county jail
until such fino is paid. Provided, that
such imprisonment shall not exceed tun
days, and the killingof each bird or animal
as specified herein shall bo doomed asepe
rato offense" Section second makes it un
lawful for any person to buy, soil, or have
in possession any of the animals, wild towls
or birds, mentioned in section ono of this
act, at any time when tho trappiag, netting
or ensnaring of such animals, wild fowls
or birds, shall bo unlawful, which shall
havo been entrapped, netted or ensnared
contrary to tho provisions of this act, and
any person so offending, shall, on convic
tion, be subject to tho same fines and pen
altios to bo enforced and collected in the
same manner, as is provided by tho previous
section. Section third prohibits entirely

any manner, or any attempt to kill or en
snare in any manner any robin, blue bird,
swallow, martin, musquito hawk, whip-
poorwill, cuckoo, woodpecker, cat-bird,

In reply to the statement made in the
Massac Journal, of Metropolis, that small
pox had reached Paducah, the Enterprise,
of tho latter city, says :
"We only have one case of small pox
among us, a colored man, who contracted
the loathsome disease in Cairo. He was
immediately cared for by our authorities,
sent to the pest-house and do new cases
have developed. The scare in Paducah has
Some time ago a white man named Black
came to the marine hospital station in this
city and applied for admission, saying that
he had fallen into the river and was sick.
He had come here direct from Paducah on
tho steamer Gus Fowler, and had gone
straight from the boat to the'.hospiinl. IIo
was admitted to the hospital by tho kind
Sisters and Dr. C. R. Carter, the marine
physician, was notified, The doctor came
and naw, and discovered that tho man
Black was afflicted with the loathsome dis
ease called small-pox. Tho doctor told
the man Black that bis ailment was small
pox, aud the man Black replied that ho
knew it. He knew it when ho started
from Paducah for Cairo; ho had told tho au
thorities of Paducah, or tho men who acted
a such, that he had the small-pox, expect
ing that they would caro for him. But
instead of doing this, tho authoritics;of Pa
ducah, or tho men who acted as such, spur
red him, compelled him to go aboard of
tho steamer Gus Fowler, and to leave tho
city, no matter where or how, dead or
alive no matter if ho carried disease and
death into other communities no matter if
he touched with pesticial hand the hearth
stories of ncighboringciti.es, or if he trans
formed a popular public conveyance into a
floating pest-house. Just so he left Padu
cah, just so Paducah would not bo troubled
witl the caro of this ono poor sufferer.
Thus reasoned tho authorities of Paducah,
or those who acted as such in this matter;
and men, with souls and brains moro in
finitisimal in dimensions than these persons
Boom to possess, it would be impossible to
find. But Black thought to profit by this
brutal treatment of himself directly and of
this part of the country and iho traveling
public in general, indirectly he
did Cairo tho injustice to he
licvo that her authorities would also
refuse to care for him and send him away
if ho told the truth concerning the charac
ter of his aliment, therefore, he did not tell
tho truth, but pretended to havo falleu into
the river, and thus caught a sovcro cold. ,
This is the story, which Black told when
he was lying upon what ho had reason to
belicvo would prove to be his death-bed,
aud wo have as yet not soon any contra
diction of it in tho Paducah press. We
havo excellent ground, therefore, to bo
licvo tho story truo. From Black's arrival
hero may be dated tho odvont of small-pox
here. For Black tho city board of health
had its first meeting ; for Black's roccption
tho city post-honso was repaired and fur
nished; Black was its first inmate; since
Black's arrival there havo been four moro
