Skaters were out in full force on the

that the government will prohibit ths New

A private dispatch received here yes
terday announced the burning of the furni
ture factory and the Planters bouse at
Hickman the night before. The factory
belonged to Henry A. Tyler; it employed
over a hundred men and boys, and was the
main support of the town. No further
particulars could be obtained.
A cow belonging to Mr. McCander,
which had mysteriously disappeared nearly
two years ago, was heard from several days
ago in the county, where a negro had her
and had kept her almost ever since she had
left home here. She was a fine animal
when she left, and Mr. McC. is very agree
ably disappointed to get her back at all.

As may be seen from our river column,
last evening's river report gave no indict
tion of the approach of the "big water"
predicted by Gen. Haten. The Ohio was
falling at all points reported from, in
eluding Pittsburg down to Cairo, and here
the rise was only one inch during the
previous twsnty-four hoars. There is little
reason to doubt, however, that we will have
more water as soon as the weather mode
A warrant was sworn out before Man
iitrita Comings several days ago for the
arrest ot young Wm. Kendall and another
young man whose name has slipped our
memory, charging them with stealing a
cow irom a negro living in the upper por
tionot the city. The cow was a fine - ani
mal, as fat as butter and of fine stock. The
owner paid ninet-five dollars for the mothe
snd would have refused one hundred dol
lars for ths stolon animal. The hide was
found in Mr. Henry Bayers' shop on Ohio
levee, where the young fellows mentioned
in the warrant had left it for sale. But it
seems that the boys learned tliut the war
rant bad been issued, snd tloy could not
bs found by the officers. It i bMieved they
have left the city.

A Turkish immiurant womin dressed
in rags, carrying her little personal effects
in a bundle under her arm acd a little child
tied up in rags suspended in a gunny sack
from the end of a stick over her shoulder,

on Commercial avenue last evening. The
little one was moaning and must have been
suffering with cold. The woman was beg

Those who know all about such things
say that the receut falls of snow over the
wheat regions of Illinois will greatly help
the coming crop. Many fields were already
showing indications of insect life likely to
prove injurious. To tha horticulturist the
winter has, so far, been extremely favorable
and we can say that the new year opens
with everything very flattering to the rural
interests. The year 1884 is likely to be as
profitable to the western farmer aa its pre
decessor, which wae one of the best years
for good crops and good prices known in a
Geo. W. Hite, a brakeman oa the St.
Louis A Cairo road, was seriously injured
on the road at Baldwin station several days
ago. While switching, he stood on the
boxcar at the rear ot the train and signal
led to the engineer to start. The engine
started with a jerk, which threw Hite off
and on to the track below. The engine
then began to back, and Hite was caught
in ths trucks and dragged a considerable
distance. When found, be was badly
bruised up, and on examination it was found
that one leg was broken in two places, sev
eral ribs broken and probably some internal
About 5 :30 o'clock last evening an in
teresting foot-race took place on Eighth
street and Commercial avenue between
Mr. Gus Winter, of Winter Bros, stand, and
a negro with a leg of venison. The negro
scampered along pretty lively holding onto
the venison with a determined grip. He
held on until bis pursuer came within dan-
erous proximity to his flying coat-tail, then
dropped the meat and struck out for per
sonal liberty which, after a few squares
more had been passed, he gained. Gus then
retraced his steps and contented himself
with having recovered the venison which
had been taken from the rack in front of
his stand on Eighth street.
It's a good joke and not altogether safe
to give it away; but we can't keep it, so
beregoea: A score or more of young fel
lows who had not received invitations from
thetr "best girls" to attend the Leap Year
party at Hartmtn's hall last night were
angered at the supposed slight and resolved
to bite off their noses to spite their faces;
tobocome social recluses; to have nothing
more to do with the girls; buy no more
gum and opera tickets; to confine them
selves hereafter entirely to the society of
the sterner sex, and to fifteen ball-pool or
cigar poker or "stag" dances for amuse
ment. They held the first of an intended
series of the dances at the cotton compress
Cows roosting on the fine brick side
walks in the residence portions of the city
are a source of much ill will among citizens
there, who take some prido in having
thing neat and clean around their homes.
The evil is greater and more annoying than
people who have not b;;en affl.cted with it,
or who are accustomed to tilth can imagine.
But then the majority his said that rows
have a right to roost where they "darn
please," and the minoiity must console it
self by grionim; and calling the majority a
tyrannical ruMonty. There is soma relief
in abuse in a case of this kind, and the
majority an the cows will get it the form
er in words, the latter perhaps with some
thing more tangible and convincing.
Sergeant W. H. Ray, ot the signal of
fice here, yesterday received the following
special telegram from General Hazeo, chief
signal officer at Washington: "The Ohio
river of the lower portion will rise consid
erable and become dangerous with floods
probable. It will also rise between Pitts
burgh and Cincinnati during Thursday
evening, which will also become dangerous.
Property owners along its banks sre warned
to take measures to protect themselves
against loss." But at this point the river
lacks four and a half feet of being up to
the point where it overflows its banks and
about seventeen feet perpendicular of being
up to the topa of our levees where they are
the lowest. If tho predictions above come
true we will again have to stand by and see
our neighbors drowned out all around us,
while we ourselves are as upon a high hill
beyond the roach of the mad flood.
Gen. Hazen, the third assistant post
master general, says : "Two-cent postage
it a success. The demand
for two-cent stamps is enor
mous. The receipts from the sale of stsmps
this quarter will almost, if not quite, equal
those for the same quarter last year. The
deficit oa account of the reduction will be
only about 10 per cent., or between $4,000,
000 and $8,000,000. It was estimated that
the reduction in letter postage would result
in a deficit of about $3,000,000. This will
be the amount charged to this cause. The
other $1,000,000 or $3,000,000 will be
chargeable to other causes. First, the new
law giving postmasters at small Dostofflces
all the receipts from stamp salts instead of
a percentage; and, second, the decision of
the supreme court giving land grant rail
roads the right to demand cash for trans
porting the malls over their leased lines."
The ladies who inaugurated and man
aged the Leap Year ball at Hartman's
ball last night just covered themselves
with glory and proved beyond a doubt that
executive ability is more general among
the fair sex bere than is generally supposed
It was a select party comprising upwards
of fifty couples of our popular society peo
pie. In accordance with the nature of the
occasion the ladies were in the aggressive;
they chose tbsir partners, while the gen
tlemen had to take their chances, meekly
and anxiously waiting to be in
vited to take a whirl. But
few if sny were permitted to constitute
themselves "wall-flowers;" hence the enjoy
mentwas general. With brief interruptions
for chatting and punning and joking, the
dance lasted until sfter midnight, when
each gallant young lady graciously permit
ted herself to be escorted home by her
blushing male companion.
Recounting soms of the most import
ant disasters which happened during the
year just closed an exchange says "the year
opened with the loss of four or five ocean
steamships, in one of which, the Cimbria,
nearly five hundred men and women perish
ed. Following the loss of the Cimbria
come the Milwaukee fire, in which eighty
lives were swallowed up. The floods on
the Rhine and Danube destroyed millions
in property and one hundred and fifty lives.
Three hundred persons perished in a burn
ing circus in Poland. Eighty miners were
drowned at Braid wood, Ills. Floods in
tbs western and southern states io February
carried off one hundred people. Ninety
men and women lost their lives in an En
glish church panic. A powder factory ex
plosion at Paris took off 50 and giant pow
der at San Francisco killed thirty. Two
hundred perished in the tornadoes which
desolated Georgia, Mississippi and Arkan
sas, and seventy-five were lost in similar
storms in Illinois and Wisconsin. The June
floods in the western states swept away 60
lives; the Baltimore pier disasters, 70;
the wreck of an English fishing fleet 875;
a powder explosion at Constantinople, 150;
a church panic in Sunderland, England,
200; cyclones in Minnesota and Dakota,
55; the earthquake in Ischia, 5,000; the
earthquakes in Java, 100,000; railroad ac
cidents in Roumania, 150; the earthquakes
in Asia, Minor, 2,000; the Mount Ararat
avalanche, 150; the cholera in India, 15,000;
and the same disease in Egypt, 21,000; the
earthquake in Persia, 600; the November
gales on the great lakes, 200, and the wreck
of the Gloucester, Mass., fishing fleet, 200.
These are only the most dreadful of the
long list of casualties which have made
1883 memorable. Leaving out the thou
sands of mishaps by which one or two
lives have been lost, the great disasters ot
the year foot a total death role of more
than 150,000. It is a grim and terrible
record to look back upon, and one which
all may hope will never be paralelled."
