Capt. Jno. R. Thomas has our thanks
for acopy of volume 1 of the Tenth census of
the United States, received yesterday. The
book is a valuable one, treating of the popu
lation of the country in its relatious to var
ious other matters, such as temperature,
rain fall, etc. Evidently Capt. Thomas can
sometimes overlook the crime of Democracy,
in the distribution of his favors, and this is,
in our opinion at least, another point in his
favor, although sucn violent partisans as
Hull, of the Jackson County Era, and Bar
ton, ot the Free Press, will very emphatical
ly deny this.
Some time ago Chief Myers notified
the keepers of several houses of doubtful
reputation, on Commercial avenue, that
they must v icate tbe premises. The notico
was ignored by them and yeBterday, at the
instance of Julge Bross, they were brought
before Mistrtte Coinings to answer the
charge of keeping bad houses. They were
all found guilty upon testimony given by
the olhcers, and while Iwo of them were
granted continuances on condition that they
leave within three and five days respectively
the thirl iw finl f 10 and costs and
warned to vacate her premises by Thursday.
This will clear an otherwise very respecta
ble neighborhood of an evil that was spread
ing there and exerting a blighting effect
upon property interests in the neighbor
hood. The respectable people of tbe neigh
borhood will feel much relieved after this
Sunday night the officers shipped a
little old negro, familiarly known as "Lucky
Bill" on the Belle of Memphis, down the
river, in the firm belief that they were rid
ding the city, for a while at least, of a very
objectionable and troublesome character.
"Lucky Bill" has been a resident of Cairo
(under the protest from the authorities) for
many years and has spent much of his time
in jail, for general worthleesncss. As soon
sb he got aboard of tbe boat be was taken
with one of his fits of disorder. He abused
all the "common workin' niggers" as he
called the "roustabouts;" went up into the
cabin and made himself offensively conspic
uousin fact assumed possession of the
boat. Tbe officers were afraid he would be
put off before the boat left; but when it left
with him aboard, they were satisfied that
something would happen tohim before hegot
very far. Their expectations were realized,
if subsequent reports are true. A toat that
arrived here from below yesterday and
have passed the Memphis at same point not
far below here, brought the news that
"Lucky Bill" had deliberately walked off
the boat into tbe river and was drowned
He had kept up a nonsensical jabber all the
time. Just before leaving tbe boat he had
said, almost in one sentence, "think you
kin car' mo 'way fum Cairo on dis boat ef
don't want to go? Oh 1 1 guess not; I aint
a'feered o' dis little water (pointing at the
river); I kin walk on de water same's
Christ did; see?" and with that he went
overboard and was lost sight of. In view
of tbe fact that in the past all efforts to get
rid ot Bill have proved futile, the officers
believe that he will "turn up" here again in
a few days, even though the report of his
drowning bet rue.
Another accident occurred Sunday
morning in tbe Illinois Central
railroad company's yards in this
city, in which a young man named
Thomas Walsh, a switchman in the yaidu,
was almost instantly killed. Walsh was
standing near a car that stood close to
switch, where two tracks ran so close togeth
er that a car coming down the other track
must have nearly struck the tnd of the
stationary car. He did not notice a train
coming down the other trask and before he
did notice it he was Ciught between the
stationary and tbe moving cars and shoved
or twisted along to where the cars nearly
met, crushing his shoulders, hips and head
all out of shape. He was dead before he
fell. His remains were conveyed to his
borne on Twenty-seventh Btreet where
horrified and griel stricken wife received
them. Tbe pressure of his body between
the cars was so great that the sides of the
cars were cracked.
The officers made a raid yesterday on
"Pinch" and other neighborhoods In tbe
city that are Inhabited by men and women
of disreputable character. The very com
mendable object was to rid the city of as
many of them as poeaible, and make them
seek their former places of residence, which
they forsook either voluntari y or by com
pulsion, and imposed their very demoraliz
ing presence upon this long suffering com
munity. Six or eight of the most trouble
some females of "Pinch" were ordered to
appear before Magistrate Comings, charged
with various ofiences of a more or less seri
ous nature. Sllie Taylor, Lizzie Norman
and Alice Calhoun were charged with fight
ing and generally disturbing the peace.
The two first named had called a drunken
white man into their den on Fifth street
and when he became troublesome had fired
lamps and kettles and flat-irons and bottles
and brooms, etc., etc., at h''m, most of
which be caught somewhere, but without
sustaining much injury. The target him
self, named Mike Blackwell, was also in
courtcharged with drunkenness and disor
derly conduct. Uattie Alexander, Alice
O'Neal and Eli?. Henry were all charged
with wandering a'wiut the streets late at
night, etc. The court entered fully into the
spirit of the enterprise and assessed a fine
of $100 and costs in each of the cases above
mentioned, granting them stays of execu
tion of from nine to thirty-six hours, on
condition that they leave the city each
within the time specified. Several oiher
ctses of minor importance were disposed
of strangers who had come to the city on
purpose no doubt to "have a high old
time." "Catfish Row" was also represented
in court by several delegates of the female
persuasion, who bad engaged in a warm,
racy discussion and so rue physical demon
strations, which disturbed the neighbor
hood for squares around Sunday uiht.
They too were fined round sums and given
time to leave town.

Governor Johs Hamilton Dear Sir:
I respectfully call vur attention to a mat
ter having reference to the material welfare
of your Srtte.
You will agree with me that the building
of more long lines of railroads through your
state, would be of great benefit to the peo
ple. I will therefore inform you that I am
prepared to carry on the buildingof several
iong lines ot railroads at one time, and do
mt want any money till sections of 25
miles are built.
I would desire companies to place their
bonds themselves to be cashed as each 25
miles aro completed. Yours respectfully,
