Mr. Bird, who lives near the river bunk
on the Missouri Bhorc, has found it neces

Tho distance from tho front fence of the

Tho train on the Cairo and St. Louis'
railroad last evening was prevented from
entering the city by high water. It was
compelled to stop outside of tho levee and

to make their way into tho city as best they

soon the Narrow Guage will probably be
compelled to stop operations entirely, at
least so far as Cairo is concerned.

miuutes afterwards. But there was no or
casion for action on i's part; neighbors had
come to tho rescue, and the flames were
speedily put out. Tho cause of tho fire
was a defective flue and the damage dotio

Tho some paper says also: "A child was

Judge Cox, on Saturday, denied to
Gultoau the privilege of addressing tho jury
in his own behalf, upon tho "assumption
that he would abuse it." The assumption
could only bo made upon the supposition
that tho prisoner is either insane or vicious
past control. It appear the latter view is
held by the judge, In which he coincides
with the views ot most poople who have
given the case attention. If a man claims
the privilege of counsel, even for himself,
he must conform to thejrules of decency
and respect for the court. On Ithe other
hand, the law docs not provide for an insano
man appearing for himsolf ; so, in either
event, the ruling of Judge Cox is most
righteous, and goes far; toward oflaetting

The Jackson County Era, of MurphyS'
boro, gives the following particulars of
latal accident in its Friday's issue: "As
the south-bound freight was doing some
switching at the Lewis switch, at 4 :30 yes
terday morning, Mr. Silos Matthew, of Per
cy, aged about twenty-three years, brake-
man on the train, jumped off the rear end
of the flat car that was being backed up, in
an instant, cries were heard and on stopping
the engine, he was found to be under the
tender; he was at once taken from the track,
and died in about five minutes, he wbb per
lectly conscious all tho time and told his
comrades that ho jumped off to make tho
coupling and got caught; although nono

-The ninth day of April, 1883,' will bo
the two-hundredth anniversary of the dis
covery of the mouth of the Mississippi river
by Robert Caveiier De La Salle. The
members of the ChicRgo historical society
think that this historical event should be
appropriately commemorated on that day.
n view of the fact that La Salle was one of
the first white men who ever set foot upon
the soil where Chicago now stands and
that his settlement on Peoria Lake, in
March, 1080, where ho built Fort Creve-
ueur, was tho first civilized occupation of
what now constitutes tho state of Illinois;
and as it was from this point that he im
provised the expedition to discover the
mouth of the Mississippi, the society bss
ventured to suggest that the historical
associations located in tho valleys of the
Mississippi and Ohio rivers should unite
in a celebration of that discovery in the
city of New Orleans, April Oth, 1882.
Yesterday the artesian well which is
being driven on tho premises of the Llal-
liday had reachod a depth of one hundred
and thirty-five feet. At a depth of about
one hundred and fifteen feet a layer of
small gravel, mingled with pure, whito sand
was reached, which gives ground for tho
belief that tho water obtained from this
depth would bo of tho purest kind. But it
is the object of Major Halliday, under
whoso immediate supervision tho work is
being done, to go down to a depth of two
hundred feet in tho expectation ot there
obtaining a steady, voluntary flow
of clear, huulthy water. The bed
of gravel was reached immediately after
penetrating a thick layer of sand. Wheth
er the gravel bed has been penetrated and
another substance reached since tho pipo
has gono twenty feet deeper has not been
ascertained. Tho progress of tho work will
be a matter of interest to the Cairo public,
ami if Major Halliday's venture proves a
success, it may lead to something of benefit
to tho community at largo.
In tho circuit court yesterday, tho caso
of JohnMcNulty vs. United States Mar
ahal Jacob Wheelor&ud kis deputy, Peter
Saup, took up tho greater part of the day.'
The suit was begun by plaintiff to recover tho
valuo of goods alleged to have been! illegal
ly seized by tho defendants. The aso was
given to the jury in the afternoon, about 8
o'clock, and a vordict, giving the plaintiff
eleven hundred and forty dollars, was ren
dered soon after. The dofenso admitted
the claim of tho plaintiff so far as illegal
levy was concerned, but took issue with
plaintiff concerning tho value of the goods
levied upon. This case being disposed, of,
H. J. Fisher vs the City of Cairo was taken
up. Fisher held old Cairo City bonds to
thoj amount of four thousand dollars,
which ho refused to compromlso at tho
amount offered. He has therefore insti
tuted suit Against tho City of Cairo to re
cover the faco valuo of the bondii with in
terest for a series of years. Tho ense
will probably be concluded to-dajj.

In reply to a correspondent who argues
that tho state has a right to use force in

that, as vaccination is a good thing, tho

pleasure, would bo "a favor" to him; but by
such a law his personal liberty would be
outraged ; because a man should bo allowed
to do anything which dw.a not interfere

not the right to burn bis neighbor's house,

pleasure in witnessing the destruction of

to get tho small pox and communicate it to

other man has a righ't to carry to him a dis

which one man may bo prevented from
compelling another man to take a painful

law, enforce such preventive method. If
each man were isolated, ho might, without
question of the law, have the small-pox as

other words, each man has the individual
right to have the small-pox. But no man

THE CITY NATIONAL
AN IMPORTANT CAPTURE.
For some months past articles of value
have been missed from tho ono or tho other
of tho wharf boats in this city, but it was
imposoiblo to track tho goods to their pos
sessor. These articles were sometimes
taken from packages in transit, at others
they were the property of persons employed
on the boats. In this way dry goods, boots
and shoes, carpets, and feather beds were
stolen, always without leaving any cluo by
which they might bo traced, and tho wharf
boats were always compelled to mako good
the losses. Some months ago Mr.C. W.
Bradly stored a quantity of his house-hold
goods on the lower wharf boat, believing
that thoy would be entirely safe there; but
a few days ago it was found that they had
been disturbed and, upon exam
ination, were found to be short
a number of blankets, quilts, bud sheets,
pillow slips, etc. Complaint bad been
mado before upon several occasions by the
owners of tho wharf-boats to Chief Myers.
and ho, after some investigation, asserted
confidently that the guilty party was an
employe of either one or other of tho wharf
boats. But this was doubted, and the in
vestigations were not pushed. This time,
however, the chief was told to "work up"
the matter, regardless of whom it might
affoct and he went to work wdjb characteristic
enJlgy. After some deliberation he gave
directions to the officers and the "piping"
began. A good description of the articles
stolen was placed in the hands of each of
the officers, and it was not long
before Officers Wims and Tyler
found somet of the goods in the
possession of colored people, living up
town. Inquiry as to where the goods were
procured lead to the discovery of one of the
thieves, Samuel Anderson, a negro em
ploye of wharf-boat No. 2, the very man at
first suspected of tho theft by the chief.
Other officers found more poods in different I TOHN SPROAT

of them, it was decided to close in on them.

A CHILD ABANDONED.
About six weeks ago a young woman, car
rying a littlo child, came to tho houso of

permission to leave tho child there for a
littlo while, until she, tho woman, could
find employment and a place to stay. Tho
woman, Mrs. Carrio Dalo,slio said, washer

sistance. Mrs. Cook took pity upon tho
woman and her little child and consented
to takecaroof tho latter for a reasonable
length of timo with the understanding that
Mrs. Dale should find employment and a
place to stay as soon as possible, and then
take possession of her baby again. Mrs.

With this information In hnml. thn

arrested and brought to head quarters.
They were subjtctod to tho same rigid ex

as many pieces of the goods as Anderson
had said. Holland claimed to have Stolon
