TITfi great increase in fines and penal
ties reported in the internal revenue collec

county, who were duly tried and hncd each
five hundred dollars and costs at Spring
field. Last evening wo received tho, first copy
of the Paducah News during this week.
In the absence of any reliable information
to the contrary wo may assume that the
reason of tho interruption was that the
News was telling its Paducah readers some
thing which it didn't want Cairo to know,
Washouts aro interfering seriously
with the running of trains on nearly all rail
roads around m. Tho Wab mh seems to be
more alllicted than any of them. Trains
have not arrived regularly on that road for
several days. The reason ol this was that
the l ite rains all along this road were much
heavier than elsewhere.

At Cincinnati tho river is falling
slowly since yesterday afternoon, and as it
appears from specials published elsewhere,
the Cumberland, Tciiucsseo and Wabash
rivers also, are on a decline. Yesterday
tho river stool about forty-four feet which
whs Cincinnati's sixty-three foot rise of
Monday, giving it four days to get here.
Cincinnati's sixty-six feet one inch of yes
terday morning will get hereabout Mon
day and cannot give us over forty-six feet.
The river at Cincinnati is only eleven hun
dred feet wide, and rises and falls rapidly.
Here, after the river overflows its Kentucky
banks, which it does at forty feet, it spreads
over territory, over four miles wide, so that
the rise of a foot at Cincinati would make
less than one inch her?. Cincinnati's Bixty-
six feet would therefore give us less than
forty-five feet; but it is probable that tho
smaller stream coming in below Cincinnati
will conduce to make it about forty-six
feet here, At St. Louis the river was rising
according to last evening's report, b it not
any more rapidly than here.

on demand, or received by any agent in

shall also cash said checks for employes
whenever they may have sufficient funds.
Hankers and merchants receiving any of
said checks can make them available by
collecting through banks at St. Louis, as in
the case of any other check or draft, with
current rate of exchange. These checks
will be sent by the paymaster to the various
heads of departments at convenient points

THE LATE CAPTAIN HAMBLETON
AN HUMBLE THinUTB TO UI8 MEMOUY BT
ONE WHO KNEW HIM LONO AND
ALWAYS AS A FHIEND.
l'orreiiondince of the Cairo Bulletin.
Although a full fortnight has passed
since tho big-souled dipt. Bill Hambleton
was laid away to his eternal rest, who that
knew him as tho writer knew him aud as
all you of Cairo and Mound City know him,
yet fuels the pangs of his deep regrets as
suaged, or has found words fittingly ex
pressive of the sorrow that possessed his
soul when tho announcement went forth
that tho truu-heartcd friend, the good citi
zen and genial companion had joined the
silent majority. You and I and all of us
felt as true a heart as ever throbbed in a
human breast had been stilled; and that in
the going out of the light of his genial and
generous soul a shadow had fullen upon us
that time and change might never fully die
pel. Southern Illinois is not lacking in men
learned iu the law, in pulpit orators of dis
tinction, in educators of ability nor in bu
siness men of great shrewdness, energy and
integrity; but can you, or any of you, lay
your hands upon the man among them over
whose lots your hearts would swell with a
greater sorrow than which is felt for tho
lamented Hambleton! Men of finer ami
more thorough mental culture you have;
men who, in the accumtilatiau of worldly
goods, were more successful; men who
from pulpit or rostrum kept themselves
more prominently before the public, but
not one, in any pursuit or profession, wh
held a wanner place in the hearts of the
people than did Cautain llamhleton. As
a steamboat-man and boat builder he be
came universally known among (he thou
sands who people the banks of your great
rivers between Cincinnati, St. Imis and
New Oilcan, and bad he been known in
no oilier than these relations in life, he
would still have deserved the tribute to his
memory that was shown in the half-maM
llags that sorrowfully floated above the
shipoiiiL' at your wharves when the s o
tidings of his death reached you. But
although just, upright and contentions iu
business, it was in the social relations of
life that Captain Himbleton "shone re-
spelndent." His friendships were strong
Hnd enduring, his generous nature ignoring
causes for estrangement that would have
moved others to quick resentment,
aud the broad mantle ot bis
charity coveiing acts and omissions
that would quickly have moved
the less forgiving to lutred and' enmity
He knew everybody, for everybody he had
a ready recognition and a kind and friendly
word; and for those whom he made his
compulsions lie hail an exhaustless fund of
sterling wit and humor that quickly re
sponded to every draft that was ni'tdo opfii
it. IUcy anecdotes, pointed jokes, original
retorts were always at his command, and
his faculty of adapting them to the dc
minds of the moments, rendered him one
in a thousand for "setting the table in a
Of the lamented Captain's quarter of a
century among you; of tho great industiral
enterprise ho so skillfully prosecuted, of
his unimpeachable personal integrity; of
the u'eneroaity of bis nature and of his
worth asacitizeu that so endeared him to
all who knew him, you have already spoken
iu terms of deserved praise and eulogy.
Warmly endorsing all that has been writ
ten in that regard, and numbering myBelf
among the great multitude who aro now
proud to lio him in memory as a friend,
I am very truly and sincerly,

High water has aiaiu cut the St. Louis
nnd Caiio railroad off from the city. Trains
stopped running yefiterday. The water is
seveial feet deep over the track in places. If
the company so desired it could have long
ago avoided this yearly interference with
its traffic; it could have obtained a perma
nent right-of-way into the city where it uow
runs, built a strong embankment sufficient
ly high to place the tracks beyond the
reach of high water, an I constructed a suf
ficient number of culverts to havo prevented
the flood from washing it away again. That
a right-of-way where the road now runs,
could have hoeu obtained at any time, and
can still be obtained, probibly without the
expenditure of another centwas developed
during the proceedings lat. ly had between
the company and tho city. And that such
right-of-way would be just as safe from bo-
ing carried away by the river n would the
one within tho levee is probably sufficient
ly guaranteed by the stono wall with which
the bank all along there has been revetcd
by the government. It is said that
"where'er there's a will there's a way," and
the truth of this is being veritlod everyday
Iu view of tho fact that the St, Louis and
Cairo railroad has had several different
ways by which it could havu obtained per
manent right-ot-way into tho city, aud un
interrupted traffic communication with it,
and has stubbornly and stupidly failed to
tako advantage of these wys, tho conclu
sion is lorced upon us that tho will has
been lacking; that the company, for soinn
reason best known to itself, didn't want
permanent right-of-way Into tho city.
