An error of just ten years occurred in
our calculation of the anniversary of the
battle of Belmont. Tho battle occurred
twenty-two years ago Tuesday. Many of
our citizens can tell some interesting little
personal experiences of that time. Some of
them were in the guard house here, others
in the hospital and others still under fire on
the battle field.
Mr. Jno. T. Rennie has made aud put
up yesterday a new boiler and smoke-stack
for his machine shop and foundry. Tho
boiler is much larger than the old one was,
and will overcome a difficulty that was met
with formerly by furnishing enough steam
power tor both foundry and machine shop
engines at the same time, which the old
boiler failed to do.
There were 119,580 demands made last
year upon the record and pension division
of the army for information of causes of
death and hospital records of soldiers. This
is an increase of 57,950 over the previous
year, and denotes that the hankering for
pensions is extending to old regulars. It
will be soon be necessary for the country,
in self-protection, to adopt a statute of lim
itation for all pension claims.
Dun's Mercantile Agency reports busi
ness improved, with a marked increase in
clearings. Profits are not large, but money
is being made, aud most all traders feel
satisfied with the season's business. The
money market is easy, and the present low
price of iron and other raw staples invite
capitalists to invest, feeling assurred of a
rich return in the future. No fears about
the promptness of collections are entertain
ed. At the last meeting of the Ideal
League, it was decided to givo a club re
ception at Temperance hall, tne nrst
Tuesday of every month, at which
friends ot members of the club should be
permitted to be present by invitation. The
League has also begun the publication of
a socioty paper, in which contributions
from members will appear. The first issue
will appear Friday.
A stranger named Jno. Davis hung on
the horns of a Paducah dilemma, and, as a
very natural consequence, got beastly
drunk. Magistrate Comings fined him $1
and costs yesterday, and took occasion to
warn him of the danger of tasting, touch
ing or handlicg anything of a horny
nature that is in the remotest degree
connected with Paducah, as everything of
such a nature necessarily is intoxicating.
Unless the windows of the blue be
yond are closed soon, so as to stop these
persistent rains over this section of country,
corn will rot in the fields. Farmers have
been waiting for a week or ten days for a
chance to pull and market their corn, but
rain has interfered. Corn mills here are
out of raw material, and our commiesion
men, those who make grain a specialty, are
waiting idly and impatiently fur a clear sky
and for corn.
Joseph II. Bradley, a lawyer of Wash
ington, who has passed his 80th birthday,
recenty married Mis Mary Harris, 50

roughs, ;f Chicago, iu the corridor of the
treasury department, eighteen yeas ago,
for breaking his promise to marry her.
She was acquitted and sent to an insane
asylum for treatment. Bradley was tho
lady's senior counsel at her trial for mur

was announced, Miss Harris, amid great
excitement in the court room, turned and
Mr. Dean, bridge carpenter on the
Wabasti road, sat down in tront of Mr
Quisebartb'g eating house, on lower Com.
mercial avenue, Tuesday night, and fell
asleep. While thus asleep Samuel Brown,
another white man, sneaked up and sat
down close by him, and robbed him of
what money he had in his pockets, amount
ing to about 18. Officers Mahanny and
Hogan heard of the robbery, and in an
hour or bo had Mr. Brown in jail, recover
ing all but a few dollars of the money,
which Brown had spent. Yesterday Jus.
tice Robinson held Brown to bail in the
sum of $300, and ho was sent to the county
jail to await trial by tho Circuit court.
In 1860 there was over 2,000 miles of
levees on the Mississippi, with an average
height to 8 to 10 feet and a breadth at tbe
base of 50 to 75 feet, their width at the top
being usually equal to their height. A few
of the levees were ot immense size. That ( f
the Yazoo Pass, about 100 miles below
Memphis, was cut by the union forces dur
ing tbe war at a point where it was 83 feet
high. For a distanco of 1,200 feet it was on
an average 28 feet high, and in places Dour
ly or quite 300 feet broad at its base. This
was and is the largest levee on the river.
Louisiana before the war had expended
more than f 14,000,000, Mississippi more
than 114,000,000, Missouri over 11,040,000,
and Arkansas nearly $1,000,000, In all about
$41,000,000 spent on levees.
Tho late election of Dr. C. W. Dun
uing as grand generalissimo by the Grand
Lodge of Illiuois Knights Templar, was not
a re-election, but a promotion. The Dr.
had been, tho year before, grand captain
general; grand generalissimo is a step in
advance of this. The doctor's promotion is
certainly a.'great compliment, the more.so
since it was brought about during the doc
tor's absence from the convention, when a
number of aspirauts to tbe honor had the
field all to themselves. The compliment
was as well deserved as it was unsought
and freely given.
An exchange notes the discrimination
made by some of tbe laws of the northern
states between different classes of persons,
for various reasons, showing that in the
state of Rhode Islaud a colored man has
the right ot voting at election?, although he
may not own one dollar's worth of property;
but that a man who is born outside of the
United States, although he may bo a citi
zen and an inhabitant of Rhode Island,
whether white or colored, is debarred from
the privilege of voting at elections, unless
he is tho owner of a certain amount of
property. That the state of New Hamp
shire disfranchises her white citizens on ac
count of certain religious views they may
"Take care of my civil rights bill,"
says the Evansville Journal, "were the dy
ing words of Charles Sumner," and adds:
"They would make an excellent rallying
cry for the Republicans." Tho Journal
probably falls into the common error of
supposing that it was Stunner's bill upou
which the Supreme court recently passed.
The bill drafted by him, like most of those
offered by him during his remarkable ca
reer, never found its way out of the com
mittee room, and the law which was de
clared unconstitutional was really the work
of Gun. Butler, at whom the Republicans
are just now directing sundry hard words.
Remembering how Sumner was abused by
the Republicans just before his death, it
would be interesting to hear them using
his dying words as a rallying cry.
We have it now from the Paducah
News itself, that the town is on the verge
of general cussedness. The News of Wed
nesday 6ays: "The time has come for every
man to pull. It remains with us whether
we are to keep up with the rest of the
world, or finally take our seat upon an
empty parcel and whittle sticks for a pas
time. There is a tide in the affairs of cities
which, taken at the flood, leads on to profit
and renown." We have in the past paid
entirely too much attention to what the
News said about Cairo. We expect nothing
and could get nothing from the News' read
ers. Uther people were not anecten oy
the News' slurs upon Cairo and never
beard of them except, perhaps, when they
reappeared in these columns, and there
is a barely possible that tho Blurs did Borne
mischief. In the future we shall let the
News busy itself to its heart's content iH
venting its jealousy against Cairo in its im
potent way, unnoticed except by its readers,
who very evidently have nothing to do but
wap jack-knives and build air castles.
Work was begun on the Thirty-eighth
street sewer Tuesday morning. The sewer
is to be of brick like the Tenth street sewer
and is to be thirty inches in diameter. A
tunnel will be dug through the levee not
much larger than the sewer is to be and the
brick work will proceed with the excava
tion. The same parties who built the Tenth
street sewer are building this one. They are
gentlemen from Du Q'loin who understaud
lie business thorough!)'. Before letting
this Becond contract tho mayor spoke
to several of the best brick masons in this
city who declined the job. Only one home
man offered to do the work and he wanted
two dollars per foot more than it is bemg
done for. The Tenth street sewer was also
built for much less, in spite of the unforseen
difficulties that were encountered in its con
structions, than home men whoso judgment
ought to be good in such matters, estimated
it would cost. The work on this sewer is
certainly of the very best kind and
this being the case the coBt is a matter that
ought not to be taken into account at all.
The Anna Farmer urges tho estab
lishment of a creamery in Southern Illinois.
It mentions jCarterville, Williamson coun
ty, as an excellent place for such an insti
tution, because of the great number of far
mers keeping cows in that neighborhood,
who, says the Farmer, are all in tho dairy
business in a small way, and now ship all
their butter to Cairo, "A creamery located
at Carterville could uso tho St. Louis Coal
railroad as one of the means of gathering
up the cream from the farms adjacent to
the towns along the road. The farmers are
aware of tho great benefits to be derived
from tbe location ot a creamery in their
midst, and doubtless would give financial
aid to the construction of such an institu
t on." The suggestion is certainly an ex
cellcnt one, and the people of Cairo who
now find it impossible to get a supply of
good butter, would hail the event with
pleasure. Cairo alono could use. more than
the creamery could turn out every day.
She now sends to Freeport and Chicago for
thousand upon thousands ot pounds week
ly, and pays as high as thirty-live cents a
pound for it wholesale, aud this besides
the large quantities of butter that we re
ceive by our commission men. Good
creamery butter is often scarce hero at fifty
cents per pound retail. A good creamery
in Southern Illinois is a necessity, and
would be a bonauza for whomever would es
. A New Orleans paper gives us some
facts about the great overflows of the Miss
issippi river. "In the early days of the
Mississippi Valley floods were almost an
nual, and a large portion of the country
was overflowed. The Hood of 1718 was
particularly high and interfered greatly
with Bienville's work of building New Or
leans. In 1735 New Orleans was again
overflowed and much damage done; and
again in 1785. Other damaging crevasses
occurred in 1783, 1790, 1809, 1813, 1815,
1823, 1828, 1811, 1840, when New Or
leaus suffered severely from the Snuve Cre
vasse; 1850, when Bonnet Carre first broke;
1858, when four great rises occurred in
December, March, April and June, 18U2,
18G7, 1804, when, in consequence of tne
large amount of territory overflowed in
Louisiana, great destitution existed, and au
appeal had to be made to the charity of
the world to lessen the suffering, and finally
tbe great flood of 188.', which was far
reaching, covering a greater portion of tho
delta, inflicting more damage than any
At a meeting of the board of managers
ot the Widows aud Orphans Mutuil Aid
soc ety, held at tho office of Secretary
Thomas Lewis Monday night, some impor
tant action was taken, which it will interest
tho public to know. The most important
was upon a proposition made by the secre
tary to icotgauize the society under a new
name and upon a plan materially different
from that uuder which it has been working
until now. There are now twelve clashes in
the society neither of which is full. Iucase
of a death in any of these classes only the
members of that clnss are assessed, each his
share of the amount necessary to produce
deceased's insurance in case the class were
full. But none ot the classes are full;
some of them have never been permitted to
fill before new ones were started, and others
have been thinned out ty deaths and "loss
of members in various ways; so that it has
now to pass that when a member dies Ins
survivors do not receive the amount of his
insurance sometimes not near the
amount. This state of affairs
has become a serious drewback to the a)-
duty, and to rumeoy this great evil and to
gain other important points, Mr. Lewis pro
poses the new plan. Under the new plan
the society is made only one large class,
just as other mutual societies are, and every
member is liable to an assessment for every
de.ith, the amount of each assessment be
ing governed by the amount of insurance to
be raised and tbe number of members in
good standing in the society. This will ir.-
sure to the survivors of each member the
full amount of his insurance. Another im
portant and very attractive change in tbe
proposed new plan is, that if after three or
more years' membership, any member be
comes disabled in a manuer that he can
not support himself and family, and he re
mains so tor a period of oue year, be shall
be entitled to receive one-half the amount
of his insurance. Tbe new name of the so
ciety will be "Tho Illinois Mutual Aid So
ciety." Several votes were taken by the
board on the proposition aud several
amendments made, aud it was decided to
apply to the auditor of state for an amend
ment of tho charter, so as to meet the
changed condition of things. The board
also voted to transfer oue hundred dollars
that had accumulated in the fund for the
five thousand dollar class, to tbe contin
gent fuud for use fcy the secretury in de
fraying the expenses of the society. Ano
their meeting will occur next month.
