The steamer General Barnard, upon
which the United States seuate committee
went down several days ago to inspect the
government works and the jetties at New
Orleans, returned yesterday. The dis
tinguished party that went down on her
come up some time ago "all broke up,"
that is, they came up in fragments and scat
tered to different parts of the country. The
inspection by the committee is said to have
been most thorough all along the river
banks and when the jetties were reached
Senator Logan took the sounding lead him
self and measured the depth of the water in
the channel. It is understood generally hy
those who watched the progress of the com
mittee and the results of its investigations
at different points, that the committee's re
port will be very favorablo to the commis
sion and to Capt. Eals.
-At the invitation of Capt. W. M. Will
iams, agent of the St. Louis & Cairo road,
a party of about fifty citizens made atrip
up the road as fr as Hodges' Springs, Sun
day morning, making stops at the junction
of New levee street with the Mississippi
levee, and at all the statians on the line be
tween hero and the springs. The object of
the trip was an inspection ot the improve
ments recently made along this eul of
the road, most important of
which was that done by Col. Tay
lor at the junction of the levees, which is
vry substantial a3 well as extensive.
Among thoce who went were Mayor Halli
day, and Col. Durinis nnd Mr. Barbour, who
are gathering material for the bjok to be
issued by the Illinois Central road, entitled
"From the Likes to the Gulf." The ride
was a very plestnt one for all, the weather
being Hue and the scenery along the road in
teresting. The company has not yet fin
ished raising its tracks on the Mississippi
levee up to the new grade. It lacks, on an
average, nearly a foot of being up to this
height, and it has not yet begun the work
of re-establishing the old grade. But its
force of men and construction traiu were
Btill at work yesterday.
A white fellow aged about thirty years,
callinghimself "Harry Walker," hag been in
the city about two weeks lounging around
and d ting little jobs of work by turns. Last
evening he was standing on Ohio levee near
Twelfth street, when the fourteen-year-old
daughter of Bryant McNiff, who keeps a
fruit stand on the levee above Eighth street,
came along, having been sent out by her
father to make a purchsse of some kind.
He accosted the young girl, walked up the
street with her some distance and made
indecent proposals to her. The girl was
frightened and suddenly turned and fled
back home, telling her father of the
scoundrel's purposes. Her father armed
himsolt with a stout stick, and told his
daucthtor to go ahead, and he would follow
st a short distance and protect her. She
went, and again "Walker" accosted her as
before, but be hadn't said half a dozen
words when a blow from McNiff's clnb
hid him out upon tho sidewalk. McNiff
roturned home with his daughter, leaving
tho fellow apparently dead upon the side
walk, and when a fow minntes later the
officers came to take charge of him, Mr.
Walker had silently stolen away. The fol
low didn't got half the punishment he
ought to have had.
The north and south-bound trains of
the southern division of the Illinois Central
road collided near Bradford, Miss., Satur
day afternoon at about 3 o'clock. Two
men were killed and and twelve wounded,
four of the latter having legs broken. The
killed were a line repairer named Coburn
and a colored porter. The injured were
all passengers. Among the passengers were
Major Burke, of the New Orleans Times
Democrat, and wife, the latter being slight
ly injured; Mr. Hurry Cushman and
Mr. Thompson, formerly of Mr. Steagala's
sewing machine ageucy on Eighth street,
were also passengers on the up train. They
were both in the car following the baggage
car and almost the first thing they knew of
the accident was that the end of the bag
gace car ahead shot through the forward
end of their car and stopped right iu front
of them not three feet away. It seems that
the down train was flagged at Bradford for
orders. While the conductor was in the
telegraph offit'o tret ting them bis engineer
failing to see the flag, rang hit bell and
receiving an answer by the bell cord, left
the station without the conductor. Unsuc
cessful attempts were made to call him
back with a freight engine's whistle. When
two miles below Bradford a lady living
along the line flagged the north bound
passenger train came round the curve at the
rate of 40 miles an hour. Coming together,
both trains were wrecked and five cars
The night police force ot the city, on
the down town beat, made an important
capture early yesterday morning. Officers
Hogan, Mahanny, Boughner and Private
Watchman Merrinian were coming up
Sixth street toward Ohio levee, and when
at Railroad street perceived two human
forms astraddle of the fence enclosing the
yard back of Mr. Zinone's place of busi
ness on Otiio levee. The officers' suspicions
were aroused, and they went closer to the
fellows to find out who they were and what
they were doing there. They proved to be
young Wm. Poweis and a young fellow
named Richard Wilson, who has been keep
ing the lunch couuter at Mr. Joe Steagala's
saloon tor some weeks. They tried to ex
plain their presence there, but the officers
wore not s easily put off. OtH;er Hogan
took charge of young Wilson, but was re
sisted and had to call aid before the fellow
wouli submit to arrest. Being searched, two
pistols were found upon the prisoner and
3 in money. The other officers took
charge of young Powers, who made no re
sistance, and in his pockets about 2l were
found, flo ot wnicn was in goia. An ex
animation ot tho premises proved that a win
dow in t'.ie rear door of Mr. Zanone's
place of business was broken out, through
which the bar placed across the dor inside
could be removed. The door was closed
and the bar was in its place; but the officers
were satisfied that there was something
wrong, more, perhaps, because young Pow
ers was one of the intruders than anything
els", aud then entered tho house and found
the money drawer broken open and rifled
of its contents. The prisoners were taken to
j til, and yesterday afternoon brought be
fore Justice Robinson for examination.
They waved an examination, however, and
were held to bail in the sum of $300.
Officer Hogan, by causing Wilson to realize
the certainty of his conviction and the
ameliorating influence a confession might
have upon his case in court, induced that
young man to make a full confession of
the crime, which accords exactly with state
ments made above. Wilson has been in the
city but a short time and has tho appear
ance of being anything but a hardened

The combination brings its own scenery
and mechanical effects, and so elaborate is
the mechanism necessary to a proper rendi
tion of the play, that nothing in the way of
scenery belonging to the Opera House will
be used, everything being moved out. Five
experienced stage carpenters accompany
the troupe, while the arrangement of cal
cium lights require careful attention and
a thorough knowledge of its general ar
latiueiiieot. He shall have more to say
about this company later.
