A nice little excursion party came
down from Paducah on the G us Fowler yes

Until Wednesday the Wabash road
ran trains regularly to a point at the Cross
levee where the bulkheading cut them off.
But since, trains have been stopped fuither
north. The track between bore and Olm
tead is covered with water to a depth that
renders running dangerous. A washout
was also reported yesterday from a point
tome distance above Olmstead.
According to Sergeant Ray's report
yesterday afiernoon at 3 o'clock, the river
fell four-tenths of an, inch at this point dur

Rev. E. Knappo, formerly of the Ger
man Lutheran church in this city, now iu
charge of the Lutheran church of Paducah,
was in this city. He came to take a look
at Cairn and his old frionds, boing tempor
arily relieved from his week-day duties as
school teacher at Paducah, by reason of the
inundation of his school building. He re
ports a riso of several inches at Paducah
during Wednesday night and says that two
streets are under water and that the third
street is uearly so. Paducah, he says, h is
much more water than Cairo has.
In the circuit court yesterday the triil
of tho case of I) ivid A. Weaver for embez

Yesterday evidence for the prosecution tus
taken and it was nearly all in, The taking
of evidence for the defense will probably
begin this afternoon. The trial will very
likely occupy all this week.
For several days hick Mr. JetTery, of
the Illinois Central road, has employed a
strong force of men at East Cairo protect
ingthe tracks of tho company therefrom
the flood. Ruck and dirt bags aro used,
which are brought on flat-cars from Wick-
liffe. So far only about fifteen hundred
feet of tho track is out of place. To repair
all damage after the water goes down will
take only a couplo ot weeks aud about five
thousand dollars, which is only about one
fifth ot the cost of similar repairs there last
year. The work that is being done proves
effectual and will prove in the end to have
. Wednesday Mr. Stark, of Bird's Point,
Mo., came over to Cairo for safety. He
had kept a saloon over at Bird's Point;
when the flood came, his house, a good
sized frame, was surrounded, but commu
nication was kept up by means of skiffs.
His house stood upon "pins," he says, and
was hih out the flood whoa others were
submergod. But the water crawled slowly
up to the floor; each day the skiffs landed
a step higher at bis door, until it Anally
covered his floor. He laid a false floor;
thewator came higher and the floor was
raised again and again until it stood four
feet above thereal floor and hishead touched
the ceiling. But his house stood firm un
til Tuesday when the ice gave it a jolt and
over it went into deep water.
While we who are high and dry and
safe and comparatively happy within our
mighty embank monts are expressing sym
pathy for all who are less fortunate, even for
poor, helpless, beasts that are supposed by
aorre to h ive no souls, it may not be out of
order to say a sympathetic word or two also
about those soullessthings known as railroad
corporations. Riilroads have had a serious
time this winter. What with tho extreme
cold snapping the rails, the deep' snows
blockading the tracks, and the floods
sweeping away bridges and embankments,
tho expenditures aro very great, accidents
unavoidable and tho damages heavy. Even
railroad corporations ara entitled to com
miseration in this day of their calamity and
News of cases of distress and destruc
tion continues to come to us thick and fast
every day, from points below and around
us. During Wednesday night the houso
of Mr. Medley, in Missouri, about twenty
five miles below here, was cut down, a very
substantial dwelling at Norfolk was com
pletely cut in two by the ice. At points all
along tho river the gables only of houses
can be seen abovo tho water, with chimneys
smoking in proof of thoir habitation. False
floors in theso houses aro raised nearly to
the tops of the doors and men women and
children live and move-in crouch od posi
tions. There seems to be less suffering for
food though than thure was last year. Tho
demand is more for flat-boats to save
stock. Every boat that comes up picks up
people and beasts in distress.
Joseph P. Robarts, the jolly follow of
the Pulaski Fatrint, has been appointed one
of the commissioners of the Chester peni
tentiary, He takes the place of oil grand
mother Clomonts. He was appointed at
J the instigation of Hon. Dan. Hogan. The
Springfield Register speaks of him thus:
"In 1872-4 be waa elected second assistant
doorkeeper of the house, being next in rank
under that valiant and ooblo old patriot,
Thomas Rountree. Robarts owed his nom
ination in the caucus to Matt Inscore, who
claimed him to be "not a colored man, biit
as good. as one, being tho superintendant
of a colored Sund ry school." nis subae
quent conduct, however, in Springfield dur
ing the session gave rise to the suspicion
that the Sunday school over which he pre
sided must have bocn indeed a highly col
ored affair. If Josoph has not improved in
his habits since 1873, his appointment will
bean important concession to the liquor in
terest, and equivalant to giving that impor
tant political factor and important interest
in the public patronage."
A meeting of the Protection committee
was called by Mayor Tldstlewood at police
headquarters last evening, for the purpose
of determining upon perfecting and
strengthening the system of patrol on the
levees. Nearly the full committee was
present and various suggestions were mide.
It was finally decided that tho mayor apj
point a strong force of volunteers to watch
and patrol every foot of the levees during
the whole night, in order that citizens
might rest assured that a vigilant watch
was being kept. After the meeting the
mayor called upon the chairmen of the
several sub-comm'ttees to suggest the
names of volunteers, and thui about forty
men wero aopointed, who wcro in turn to
select others to relieve them at 2 o'clock
this morning. These volunteers gathered
at different noints at 8 o'clock last night
and started out upon thoir respective
beats. Besides these volunteers, the
city's force of ten laborers, supplie i wit h
shovels snd other impliments, snd Chiet
Myers' twelve special watchmen, all had
given portions of the levee to watch, ar d
regular reports to makn to Captain Jno. .
Pre, win had charge of tho force.
- Mr. R. 8. Wires, business manager if
the Madison Square Theatre company, is !n
the city making arrangements for the pre
seu'ation of Hzol Kirke at the Opera
Hon-enext Tuesday and Wednesday even
ings, Feb. 27th and 28th. No play or these
times has won its way in the hosrts f the
people like the beautiful domestic low Mory
Iluze.l Kirke, and it richly merits the pop
ular verdict of approval. It appeals only
to the better and purer feelings of human
nature. The company that will appear in
Hazel Kirke includes many of tho leading
favorites of the original cast of the play. It
brings with it its own elaborate and beau
tiful scenery and all its properties, down to
the smallest accessories. In short, Hazel
Kirke will be presouted in Cairo in a style
worthy of the play and of the Madison
Square theatre. Miss Bello Archer, who
assumes the part of Hazel, is a young lady
ot great beauty and promise in her profes
sion. She is spnken of as an ideal Hazel.
Mr. Charles Wheatleigh portrays Dunstan
Kirke, tho hard-hearted old miller. Ho is
always artistic and is a sterling favorite. A
beautiful decorated souvenir programme
will bo presented oach lady in atton lance
Wodnosday afternoon Mr. F. ' M.
Thomas, deputy sheriff of Popo county,
arrived here from Golconda with a prisoner,
enroute for the Chester penitentiary. The
prisoner was T. H. Erhart, sentenced to two
and a halt years' imprisonment fur an as
sault with intent to murder. Owing to
some irregularity of trains Mr. Thomas and
his prisoner had to lay over at this point
until yesterday morning, and he was ad
vised ly tho authorities hero to place his
man into the county jail for safe-keeping;
but he didn't take the advice and lodged in
a down-town saloon. His prisoner was
hand-cuffed and was seated in the saloon
making the acquaintance of a few fellows
whoso sympathies are not, as a rule, with the
ofliccrsof tho law. These lew follows con
cocted a plan by which they would eff.ct
Erh art's escape and they succeeded well.
Two or three of them cultivated the ac
quaintance of Mr. Thomas, and engaged
him iu conversation and otherwise, while
one or two others helped the prisoner to
shed his shackles snd to leave the saloon
unobserved by bis keeper. It was omo
minutes before Mr. Thomas discovered that
the prisoner had flown and all search
promptly instituted failed to bring to light
any trace of the fugitive. Yesterday morn
iug tho local officers here aided Mr. Thom
as in tho search and found evidence that
the man had been ferried serosa the river
during tho night. Mr. Thomas naturally
feels v.iry bad over the occurrence.
