The steamer Ohio had sime trouble to
make a landing at the Illinois Central
wharf Sunday night. Her guards caught
under the whafboat's guards and stuck
there in spite of some strong efforts to re
lease them. While attempting to release
herself, a piece of timber on her side broke
and one end of it struck a colored cabin-
boy in tho faco with terrific force, knocking
his teeth out and otherwise badly mutillat
in" his mouth and noso and chin. About
the sumo time one of the ropes by which
the boat was tied took a spring, knocked a
basket of coal-fire into the air, and tho fire
rained down in a thick shower on tho first
clerk, who was standing. on deck whero he
had no business, and received several slight
The colored driver of one of Ilalliday
Bros', teams came near being yaaked into
kingdom-come yesterday forenoon. He
was sitting on top of a load of hay in bales,
which he was about to haul into the ware
house down town; he stopped and mentally
measured tho height of tho door to sou if
he could keep his seat and drive In without
being decapitated, and while thus engaged
tho mules of course they were mules give
a sudden start and through the door they
went, while tho top beam caught the driv
er in stomach, laid him out flat and rolled
him ovor several times. When the beasts
were stopped the poor fellow was picked up
by the men who had come to the rescue in
response to ins cries, and was given some
necessary attention which brought him to
after a little while, and at last accounts he
was nearly all right again.
The two men named Kilgoro, who were
put under arrest some time ago for placing
obstructions on tho track of tho Wabash
rnnd near Harrisbunr, wcro tried Inst week
and were acquitted. Constable Shoehan
was ino oincer in the case and lelt sure
that tho evidence would bo strong enough
to convict, as ono of tho men was nearly
caught in the very act of laying a log on
the track. Mr. 8. P. Wheeler, thu attorney
for the road, was there- to prosecute the
men. But the jury found as stated, and
then the grand jury took tho ruattor in
hand nnd would have found indictments
against Mr. Wheeler and Constable Shee-
hau, for maliciously prosecuting iuotfensive
citizeus, had thoy been ablo to learn tho
full names of thuir intended victims. Thus
ended a very importance case; and it may
be that now tho dastardly attempts to satis

a corporation by eudangoring hundreds of

Somo days ago a number of tho parents
ot colored children, who were promiuont in
the late disturbance, met for the purpose of
(laterming upon the best course for thorn to
pursue in view of tho existing slate of
things. After duo deliberation they decid
ed to ongago Mr. Baily, who was last week
dismissed by tho school board because o
i..m a -
innuiuceui attendance or scholars In hit
room, to touch a private school. Thoy also
decided to rent old Tumor hall, on Four
teenth street, as tho school building, and
yesterday morning the private school was
op"nod in good style. About thirty chil
dren are said to have boen in attendance
yesterday. In this movo the colored folks
are following tho example of the whites,
who have tor years been maintaining sever
al private schools In the city, which havo
flourished steadily; but they aro certainly
a little iiiconsitttnut, in that they have on
gaged one of the very teachers against
whom they complained when engaged in
tho public school by tho school board, and
they are themselves thus giving the "no-such-thing"
to their lou d complaints.
The impression soems to prevail to
some extent that tho work on Ohio levee
above Twelfth street, that is about to be
done by the city, will bo an improvement
of the property of tho TruBt Property com
pany which said company ought to do itself.
This ia a mistake. Tho stono wall is being
built just along the inner Bide of tho outer
edge of Ohio leveo street, and it will Im
prove and protect the street alone, of which
the city has entire and exclusive control.
By making this improvement, the city,
firstly, protects and improves only its own
property, and secondly causes very import
ant and extensive improvements to be made
by the Illinois Central railroad company,
which it could not compel gaid company to
do by law, namely the raising and strength
ening of Ohio levee from Fourth street up.
The argument advanced by some, that the
city council might havo compelled the com
pany to have raised its tracks to any grade
desired without any cessation, is not good.
The city council may compel tho conformi
ty of railroad tracks to the grade of a public
sttect, and then only so far as the space oc
cupied by tho tracks is concerned; but
Ohio levee is a street only between Fourth
and Fourteenth streets, and heuco the city
council would bo powerless to dictate any
improvement on the leveo above Fourteenth
street, which really Btands most in need of
Services at the Episcopal church Ust
Sunday are said to have been very impres
sive and attractive. It was Easter Sunday,
one of the most important of tho church
year, in honor ot tlio occasion the church.
bad been profusely decorated flowers
in large quantities, of many varieties
and of the mot beautiful, had been
procured trom Chicago, New Orltans
ami Memphis, and, forming various divices,
decorated different parts of the church
with beautiful effect. Chief among these
decorations were two magnificent hand
basket., the gitt of several of the ladies of
the church, one of which stood on tho
Lectern in memory of W. H. Morris, de
ceased, and the other, on the Font in
memory of Rector Dillon-Lee. Another at
tractive feature of the decorations was a
curtain, back of the altar, also the handi
work of some of the ladies of the church.
It was heavily embroidered by hand,
and adorned with white, Easter lilies.
The weather was disagreeable all day,
hence the large audiences which filled the
church both morning and night, were a
surprise. The sermons of Rector Davenport
were exceptionally elaborate and interest
ing, and the musical exercises wero very
fine and longer than ordinarily. The choir
for the occasion was composed as follows:
Miss Ella Robbing, organist; Miss Clara
Robbinsand Miss Mamie Corliss, soprano;
Miss Annie Pitcher and Miss Rida Corliss,
alto; Mr. Frank Metcalf, tenor; Prof. C.
S. Clark, basso.
It seems that the colored people have
decided not to take any further aggressive
measures to enforce their ideas concerning
the public schools. They have not collect
ed any money for the purpoao of prosecut
ing the school board or Prof. Clarke be
cause of their failure to promise to rcceivo
am) teach the colored children in the white
schools, ami they have decided to wait a
littlo while longer before any such step is
taken. But Bishop Rix says that it seems
as though the school board were
bent upon forcing "his people" to
the worst. They would like to got what
they want without going to law, for they
haven't any more money than they need for
their daily wants; but if they can't get this
by waiting, they will havo to tako it by
law and tho lucre will havo to be forthcom
ing. They intend now to make no further
application to tho school board for a cor
rection of tho evils of which they complain,
but to wait a reasonable length ot time, and
if no satisfactory action Is taken by the
board, to proceed at once to law. Bishop
Rix justifies this action by saying that "his
people" have potitionod the board to cor
rect tho wrongs and the board did not act
act upon the petition. In both those state
ments the bishop is wrong, for tho late pe
tition to tho board doos not rofer to the
lack of play ground or of sidewalk ap
proaches at all, which appear now to be
the caue of displeasure, aud the matters
that were couiplainod of with any rea
son, were promptly attondod to by the

The natural difference between the white
and black rces is so great they never can
associate together with any benefit t each
other; and tho larger number of negroes,
recognizing this, would prefer to livo apart
with separate institutions. I doubt if the
question of mixed chools would ever ajcur
to them if designing, lying politicians did
not suggest it at every "lection. But tint
question, with many others, has been sug
gested, and in spite of twenty var's dodg
ing after the Republican ignis f'atuus,
which at first was "forty acres and a mule"
and later on equality in office, the black
man still hangs upon the the words of those
who make a politicil pet of him only long
enough to destroy bis ideas of honest in
ilustry and secure his vote. Then he is
dropped and allowed to 'brood over the
stern reality as compared with the pleasures
he has been told are rightfully his.
He and his fellows are spasmodically
taught that whereas for many years they
were trodden down they, the bone and
sinew of the laud, must arise and assert
themselves, even though the struggle
should como to arms. I know cf at least
one speaker of that ilk who, upon a recent
occasion, supported such teaching with a bit
of thrilling art. Exhibiting his right arm
he declared it ready to be laid on the altar
of their rights, if it were needed. That
was very dramatic and decidedly telling,
the said member being a sound one, not
having been laid on the late "altar."
Such speakers should not now be sur
prised if their credulous listeners, taking
them at their word, think that what was
said was meant, and conclude when they
hear the same thins over and over, that it
must be a species of rebuke for being satis
fied with their present state, and therefore
they blindly make a rush for something
different. Not necessarily something more
suitable to their wants if it is only what is
enjoyed by the harani;iier and his family.
Take the recent dash for tho nigh school
for example. The colored people could
have had no reason tor it save the weak one
that their children must havo what the
white children had, since their own build
ing was supplied with teachers qualified to
instruct their pupils for somo to come.
