(Juito a painful accident occurred to
Mr. John Hafnes Wednesday morning. lie
was in the act of splitiug a stick wliich he
held in his left hand with a sharp pocket
knife in hisright. The knife slipped and
cut a deep gash clear across the back of his
left hand, almost severing the tendons of
the fingers. His fingers dropped and he
was unable to straighten them ag .in. Sur
gical treatment was procured aud the hand
bandaged upon splits, and though Mr
Haines will be able t use it again in the
course ot a few weeks, the scar will probab
ly remain through life.

and scarcity of feed, had we have had a se

The bill recently introduced by Hon.
J. It. Thomas, appropriating one hundred
thousand dollars for the erection at this
point of a government marine hospital,
has been reported favorably upon by tho
committee which it was referred.
Col. Hamilton was told upon a pre
vious visit here that tho council committee
was ready to meet him at any time or place
he might designate. It wus Col. Hamil
ton's business to seek a conference, not tho
council committee's. Col. Hamilton, or
the company which ho represents, seeks
privileges ol the council, the council does
not ask them of tho ruilroad company;
therefore the railroad company should seek
a conference, not tho council.
Grandmother Argus allowed its pre
judice against the council to color its report
of the conference between Col. Hamilton
and the council committee so strongly that
one is almost unable to recognize in the re
port an account of the actual proceedings.
Such tactics may suit those of her readers
whoso prejudices are equally strong in the
same direction, but they cannot suit per
sons who are in search of tho truth. The
old grandmother is violating both truth
and the confidence its readers.
Owing to a disarrangement of The
Bci.i.etin's machinery, it was a .little late
in coming out yesterday morning,
and, until tho disability is removed,
its forms will be closed by eight o'clock at
night and the p-ipcr will bo printed at the
Banner and Gloancr office, thanks to the
kindness of Messrs. Throgmarton & Alden.
Persons having advertising to do will please
bear this in mind and send in their copy

Grandmother Argus says the meeting
between Col. Hamilton and tho council
committee "resulted in nothing." Being
totally blind with prejudice, it cannot bo
expected to see what was done. It is cer
tain, however, tint all that could be done,
was done, and that, if more should have
been done, it was not the
committee's fault, but the railroad
company's, for not sending some one here
who was empowered to act to conclude a
treaty, as it were. It might have required
the presence of the entire company and all
its stockholders, from Amsterdam, Holland,
and from all rver Eur p", to
achicvo this result; they ought to have been
here and the treaty ought to have been con
cluded, according to the grandmother's no
tion. As soon as thowea'her will permit, Mr.
F. Vincent will begin placing another story
upon his building at the corner of Eighth
street and Commercial avenue. Some
doubts have been express- d that the exist
ing walls and foundation will bear safely
the weight of another story; but Mr. Vin
cent assures The BiXLK'ri.v that there is no
cause whatever for apprehension upon this
point. The foundation wall, for a distance
of five or six feet, is nine iuches thick,
built of tho best material and in the best
manner possible. The remainder of tho
wall is four inches of brick on tho outside,
set against and imbeded in a frame work
of wood on the outside. The upper story
will be finished in good stylo and divided
up into a number of rooms for offices nnd
for gentlemen lodgers no fi.nii ic will be
admitted. It will meet a want that
is steadily growing nnd, being centrally
situated, will rent readily.
Between ten o'clock Wednesday night
and two o'clock yesterday afternoon the
amount of rainfall at this point measured
two and a half inches according to tho
measuring apparatus at tho signal service
office. Thisasan unusually heavy rainfall,
as often tho rain fall during tho whole
mouth does not exceed this amount. In
the year 1 88 1 tho average rainfall per
month was but two inches sixty-eight one
hundredths. In 1 880 tho average monthly
rainfall wns 4.1!J, and the total 40.50 ; m
187!) tho average monthly fall was !!.7rt, in
1878 it was 3.38 and in 1877 11.39. Last
year tho proportion of clear, fair and
cloudy weather was nearly equal. These
figures appear in a very elaborate report
which sergeant W. II. Hay and his assistant,
Mr. J. W. Everly, are preparing, giving all
manner of observations of the weather and
tho rivers since thn establishment of the

Louisville Courier-Journal: "It is
evident that while matter of Mississippi
river improvement and appropriations for
the work should be referred to the Missis
sippi river committee of the house. The
committee on commerce should have noth
ing to do with the subject. The Mississippi
river improvement should be kept separate
from the river and harbor bill, and the spe
cial committee should report on the ap
propriations needed. It is reported that
the friends of this ubject intend to unite
ami in the sensible thiuL'. instead of
clamoring for big appropriations for their
own portions of the river. One committee,
aud that the special committee of the Mis
sissippi, should decide equitably for the
different portions of the stream. The Mis
sissippi river commission must have the
necessary funds, to prosecute their work.
Last year $14 1.000 was spent on surveys,
salaries and general expenses, aud $ 1 10,000
more will be needed for the balance of the
0cnl yenr. The total expenses of the com
mission for the next fiscal year will be
$100,000, and 4,12:3,000 will be needed to
continue tin work of improvement. The
cost of improving the river from Cairo to
the gulf, will be fl3,000,000, giving a per-
manentiv g hxI stage of water all the way
down. The citv of New York a.-ks for
$20,000,000 this yenr to improve her harbor.
She must be content with lefc.,for tiic Mis
sissippi river has beeu neglected, while she
has tieen for years driwing millions out of
the public treasury. Tiie friends of Mis
sissippi river improvement must unite and
agree. The numerical strength of the
Mississippi valley congressmen is great
enough to carry any reasonable appropria
tion through congress."

by Col. Hamilton and the joint committee
of the city council. Of tho latter Col.

Hulliday, Blake, and Mayor Tbistlewood,
were present, also city clerk

and the city council, with reference to grant

Tho meeting was a very pleasant ono.
throughout and tho matters at istuo were
very geneaally discussed by mem Iters of

Hamilton and Captain Williams for tho

a proposition by the terms
of .which the company citn
cross the upper end of Washington avenue,
and cross levee at a oint outsidu of where
it intersects with new levee, on condition
that it, the company, will restore the old
Mississippi levee as neiir to in former site

wis put into writing, discussed by
all present, suL'U'estions being (Tir

Tbistlewood, nnd the committee finally to
agreed substantially as alxjvc stated.
Cd. Hamilton expressed nodissa'isf..('iion
with the proposition or any partof i ; but
he stated that he was not authorized to act
and would submit the committee's prop,
ot-ition to the cotnp-iny for
its consideration. The c!onol left

that the whole matter will be settled satis
