P.iducah News: "Saturday night last,
while the ht' aoier Fowler was enroute fioin
Curo to this p mil, n (leek passenger named
Stone, u ge;,'ieuiait aged about forty year,
was mystetiouly drowned from the boat
when m ar Chainlet's landing, just below
Lower Caledonia. There are two account 4
as to how the man got into the water, ono
given by two men who were travelling in
company with Mr. Stone, and the other by
the deckhands of the boat. The first story
is that the mm, while leaning on the guards
of the boat, vomiting, hn being sick at tho
fine, l't liisbilanne a-i 1 fill in the. w'.er;
am I the latter is, thai the man was shoved
or knocked overboard, aa there was no lco
where he could havo easily fallen over. Tho
officers of tho lioatdi l not leant that the
man was overh .ard until ho ha I been in U
water Home tune, and it was only through
the talk of tho (hxkh ind that they heard
of it at all, Tho men who wero traveling
with Stone never spoko about his b,)ing
overboard and when questioned about it
seemelti care but little about his death,
Their silence and littln Interest would in
dicate that the intiin itions of tho deckhands
ofthebia', that S'.oiio wu foully dealt
with, is most likely correct. It is under
stood from tho officers of the boat that as
loon as the fact became known to them
that a man was overboard they turned back
searched for him, but to no purpose; ho had
undoubtedly drowned ere the fact of his
falling overboard was made known. It was
also learned that Stone was on his way to
Grand Chains 111., where ho said ho lived,
hut no one on the boat knew anything about
The good always come to their own.
The modest man never fails to get his re
ward. Tho republican papers have been
abusing us shamefully of lato, but they are
now getting down to facts, and we are
being vindicated. All we now need to re
establish us in our own estimation is a sur
prise party or two and au evening newspa
per. Tho Chicago Tribune said wo set out
to annihilate An editorial antagonist and
got whipped. Tho Carlinville Enquirer
says: "The first report was that Oberly i
drew a pistol, with intent to kill and slay
numerous persons. The,fight grew larger
and larger, until last Saturdey we picked
up an exchange which had arrived at the
climax. 'The man Oberly shot, died of
ins wounos.' utiitr pipers nave repre
sented Oberly as a man of gigantic pow
ers, who literally crushed a poor, weak
printer with his ponderous paws." The
Euquiier kindly remarks that those ac
quainted with us can appreciate those rx
aggerations. "He is," says the Enquirer.
"one of the mildest men in the state, and
this parade about his ferocity grew out of
the fact that for the tirst time iu a quarter
of a century he got a little mad and 6pke
cross." That's it. We spoke cross. But
we will never do so again. Mr. Hoffman
may see in us an example ot patient merit
waiting for the verdict of virtue modestly
stan ling by i"r vindication. Our example
shows, we take it, that the good always
coiuo out on top. j Bloomington Bulletin
The ladies of Cairo have become ac
customed fo looking forward with great
expectations to the annual "opening" to
which Mrs. S. Williamson treats them at
her millinery establishment on Seventh
street, and heretofore they have ever found
their highest anticipations fully realized.
They have found the most magnificent dis
pi iys of ladies furnishing goods in infinite
variety and all the artistic combinations of
colors or material approved in the latest
edict of the god of fashion. This year
Mm. Williamson has been as studious of
the wants of the ladies of Cairo and sur
rounding country as ever before. Slio has
been north and east for a week und will
remain nearly another week examining tiie
great stocks of the foremost fashion bazaars
in the country, from which she will make
her selections for her own customers. Her
goods huvu already begun to arrive, am)
will continue to arrive every day this week,
and on Thursday next the usual "opening"
wiii liegiu at her Seventh street stand.
Mrs. Williamson always carries the heaviest
stock of millinery goods in the city, and
h-T many years' experience iu tho business
enables her to always keep it up to the
lines. Her opening this year will be like
unto a grand exposition, at which every
thing that is beautiful an 1 useful and fash
ionable in ladies' goods will be displayed
in profusion and with brilliant effect.
None shoul I fail to attend the opening,
and ail should wait for it. 2t
Thej lint committee of the city coun
cil having in charge the ordinance propos
iti.' to raise the grade of a portion of Com
mercial avenue to fifty-five feet, did well
to a-k for further time in which to report
upon a resolution referred to them by the
council at its previous meeting, declaring
it unwise to interfere with the existing
grade of the avenue and requiring the coin
mitt' e to repoit at last night's meeting of
the council. In the first place the commit
tee did not know what, or upon what, they
were to report. The resolution simply de
clare 1 it unwise to iuterel'ere with the ex
isting grade of the avenue, and
tiiis resolution was referred to
the committee with instructions to
report. Ifeport what, or upon what?
Some will say, "(if course, the committee was
to report upon this resolution to declare
the declaration embodied in the resolution,
that it i unwise to change tho existing
grade ol Commercial avenue, to be tho
sense of the committee and recommend
the adoption of the icsolution by the coun
cil." Well, suppose the committcu h id
done this, it would still havo retained the
ordinance proposing to change the grade of
tho avenue, for the purpose of c nisi lering it
and reporting upon it "at leisuie," as it hail
been instructed to ihj by ihu city council.
It would, of course, have been in duly
bound nevertheless to consider and
report upon this ordinance "at
leisure," and tho favorable report upon
the resolution referred to them by ihe
council, an I the adoption of said resolution,
would havo amounted to about as much us
a mid-summer pull' id' wind. If wo ussimiu
that tho council intended that the commit
tee should report upon tho ordinance refer
rd to them, we must presuppose that the
council had, for the time beirg, at least, a
very small idea of a very great matter.
The council knew that the committee had
never mot to consider the ordinance, hadn't
given tho ordinance a moment's thought,
purhaps, because, in part, no doubt, they
had been previously instructed to consider
and report upon it "at their loisuru," An 1,
certainly, to expect a body of men 5o report
upon so important a measure within a sin

finally dispose of tho must important oidi-
