The peilbrmar.ee in the Theatre Corai

thojattor's attention to his, tho pouter's,
girl, nnd s.ilned a gionoiu victory, has been
somewhat conspicuous sinco that occur
rence among the ppnrts of tho town. He
is a young German, named Christ. Beil
stein, tolerably well built. On tho night
in questiou be was induced to try his skill
as a boxer with soiwo of tho members of the
theatre troupe, and ho succeded in worst
ing three of them in succession in n very
short time. But the three took their defeat
In good humor and decided to
match the victor against ouo who , was in
his own and other's estimation, a skillful
bdx'ir, namely, Pat. Lilly. Pat. consented
to "stand up"'' before tho young German,
doubtless anticipating a quick and easy-
victory. The fight, if such it may bo teini
ed, began, andperliios evary one in the au-
lieuou expected that yrnmg Bj.lstein would
soon bo "taken down a tpej or two"; but
they were idl disappointed. It was appar
ent almost from the first that ho was more
than a match for his much talked of antag
onist and at the fourth round Lilly retired
lrcm tho contest with a bloody nosa and
other slight brui.-cj. It is needless to say
that "the young man who perpetrates the
bulls for Tun Ilru.ETi.N'Vnnd young Boil
stein are on intimate terms.
Two negroes, named respectively Sam
uel Joseph rind Frank Foggy, had a quar
rel yesterday just after noon, which ended
in a harmless shooting scrape. They were
standing at tho corner of Fourteenth street
and Washington iivenue, each with an open
knife, whittling, and after quarrelling for a
while about an insignificant matter, j'ofi-ph
drew a pistol from his blocking and point
ing it at .Foggy 's face, said 4'il shoot you

A writer n yesterday's Three States,
'signing himself "Citizeu," says:-r"If, as
haaleen statud, worthy and needy citizens
were to bo giv'en employment on tho new
cveo, why is it that men who can scarcely
Ije called cizensnro given the most lucra
tive positions in tho management of said
work? If,' as' has" been stated, nil teams
employed should 'bu driven by the'oivner,
and no ono , person should have
moro than ono le in on said
works, why is it that some men have ime
and two tii.nis ut work and the owners of
sd'l teams given employment beside? Why
is it that Richard Taylor, who contributed
much valuable service during the threat
ened condition of our city, and subsequent
ly had charge ol ia gang of men nt night,
has been discharged aud the position he
held given to' ono less worthy?"' As Tiik
Bulletin slated some timo ngo tho street
committee has given Mr. Serbian charge
of the Mississippi levee work, with orders
that ho employ only citizens of Cairo;
that lie employ only ono team from each
person, arid that tho owner of each team
bu required to drivo his own team. The
object of this arrangement was to give em
ployment to as many different heads of
families us possible and therefore was
wise lii the extreme. These instructions
have been deviated from to sonio extent
and therefore the dissatisfaction. But
some of the wrongs complained of iu tho
foregoing communication havo been cor
rected and do not now ex
ist. 4Tho "nnn-rcsldent" who hold a
prominent position was removed gome days
ago ia order to quiet general complaint
and to sati:ty the orders of the committee;
if tho second complaint ia well founded,
and wu have reason, upon investigation, to
believe that it is tho street committee, he
ing a!fo satisfied that it is, will
doubtless see that tho wrong is righted. As
for the third and last point, it ia hardly
worthy of note, since, if the committee had
been guided in selecting the man who
should havo chirge of tha work with n ler
enee to his former wort; on the levee, it
would have bad hundreds equally worthy
to choose from and mvtst noiep.s irily have
slighted all but one. The committee chose
Mr. Serbian beciuso be has had much n
periiiiico in such wort:; and this was the
one test which tho coinmitee dutned it im
portant to apply and in this it noted wisely.

CAIRO AND THE FLOOD.
Jtaac Juii:na1, March 18 1SS2.
Sinoe Cairo becamo a trading point,
history furnishes no parallel to tl.e lato
flood. Heretofore tho great floods have
been confined to one or tho other rivers,
but this time both were brim full and
overspred tho banks for milcB ami miles,
and it has been estimated from the most
careful observations that the water wns full
fifteen inches higher at Cairo than ever
known before, but notwithstanding this
great pressure upon her levees it is a grati
fying fact to know that they easily resisted
tho power of tho wider, which must now
settle the question of Cairo's future growth.
For tMrty years her enterprising citizens
havo been endeavoring to convince capital
ists that they could niiit would master the
waters of theso two great rivers, and at
last they havo done it in a manner that
leaves no doubt In tho minds of tho most
skeptical, During tho prcvailenco of tho
flood not a single industry was stopped nnd
the business of tho city progressed steadily
with only tho slightest interruption. As it
has been hinted tli;vt tho Singer Manufac
turing company, which .established exten
sive works there last year, were dissatisfied
with the location, it affords us p'oasnrJ to
give the most unqualified dorial to this
rumor. Speaking to Mr. ' Proctor, tho
treasurer of tho company, upon the subject,
lie said lliero was not a nhaibiw of truth iu
the repoit; that they Imd not undo a leap
in the dark, but had discussed the question
of inundation freely before locating at
Cairo, and that this flood haJ taught them
a valuable lesson, mid that they now under
stood Jmit how to construct their nddi
ti'iual Minpn, tmt th,.y wore not only uot
dlpsMisllci with tho location, but that they
"."orded Cairo na tho best manufacturing
,IIV' to the gtuut weut. Breaking f(,r
ourselves, we desire to cxprms our firm
conviction that Cairo will now grow with
out any hindrance whatever, and in a few
years, at' mcst, must become, n populous
city, the influence ot which will bo felt, di
rectly and indirectly throughout all South
ern Illinois. ' ' ' '

PROTECTION OF PROP
Cliivaiju Legal Advipcr
Wo give iii tlm issue of our paper the
opinion of Judge Anthony, of the superior
court, of this county, recently rendered in
the case of vJnoa Ayres v. Tho Chicago &
V. Ind. R. R. Co., involving tho . proper
construction of Sec. 13 of Art. 2 ot tho con
stitution of Illinois, declining that "private
property shall not bo taken or damaged
for public use without just compensation."
-The constitution existing before 1870 con
tained essentially tho Himo provision, ex
cept that tho words "or daiingca'' was
The caso mentioned was whero a railroad
company had constructed its track, and were
operating tho same in a street of a munic
ipal corporation by permission' of the au
thorities having control of tho same, where
by an abutting owner of land claimed that
his property was damaged.
Tho earliest caso in this state luvolvlng
tho like question, is that of Mosesetal.v.
Tho P.P. W. & C. R. R. Co., 21 III. 510,
in which it was held that the occupation of
a street by a railroad company, with its
track and cars running therqon, wks a prop
er use id' such street, which 'might bo per.
milled by tho municip'il authorities; and
tho feo of tho land being in tho municipal
corporation, 'abutting myners of land were
not entitled to component !un for damages
they uiigbt HUrtnin by reason of such use
of tho strt Ct '. f ;i '''
But this latier decision wan made under
tho 'constitution as existing butoro 1B70.
Tho soundness of that cuv, however, was
very generally questioned before i ho ' con.
ttitutioa win uinendcd, nod the tendency
wirtowai'di its tiu'dilh'Ktiuti. The hard-
ships under this caso, no doubt, had' much
to do hi dunging the constitution as now
In tho caso mentioned, decided by
Judge Anthony, it did not clearly appear, it
would seem, whethor tho feo of the street
was vested in the municipal corporation or
not. Tho evidence , tended, of the two, to
prove tho contrary. This fact, however, is
not regarded under our present constitution'
as material. Admitting the fee of tlio
street to be in tho mucicjpal corporation,
the question of damages to the property of
individual ownors still remains open to in
quiry, and whero the damages aro not such
as aro common to all tho community, tho
party suffering tho saino, it seems by th
weight of authorities at this day.ia entitled
to compensation therefor.
Judge Anthony was a member of tho
convention which framed our present con
stitution. and was in position to know tho
full history of this provision originating ia
tout convention, which has, no doubt, been
of much service to hira fn disposing of
this caso, which ho 1ms so well considered.
Mr. McDid, counsel for the plaintiff,
has for some timo been giving this clius of
cases special attention, wlwroby he was
aide to present his side of the case in the
strongest possible aspect, reviewing ,and
presenting tho authorities on the subject
from the earliest.time to the present.
The circumstancis combined, render this
truly what lawyers atvlu a wn!l nn.!,i,.
case, and one, it is believed, the court of
lusi resort win iiaritly find occasion to dis
turb.' A $20.00 BIBLICAL REWARD. '
