A negro named Powell, living on the
farm of George Freeze, near Elro, waa
brought down yesterday and placed in the
ceunty jail, to await trial for insanity. He
is violently insane. At home he made sev
eral dangerous attacks upon those with
whom he came in contact; ran about in a
nude state; and had to be tied in order
that he might be brought down here.
la the winter of 1863-4 nearly all the
fruit trees in Southern Illinois were killed
by the etvere frost. This winter the ther
mometer has been generally lower tnan it
was then. The probable result is not
pleasant to contemplate.
Prof. Mason has decided to give his
final party to all his class, Ye Ancients in
cluded, next Thursday night, which, by the
way, is the Professor's birthday. Pro
fessor Storer's band has been engaged to
furnish the music.
The member of tbe colored men's

The report about ice breaking in the
Mississippi back of the city is erroneous,
Patches of ice several rods square broke off
occasionally and run out, but the main
body holds firm and is still being walked
over br men and boys. The weather is
certainly not favorable to a speedy break
"The Pathfinders" had a yery fair au
dience at the Opera House last night a
much better house than the grand "Span
ish Students" had. The show was a very
pleasant one from beginning to end no
end of fun throughout. The audience
made their pleasure known by frequent
Southern Illinois Republican papers of
the "disaffected" stripe, are urging Ron.
Geo. W.Smith for the congressional nomi
nee of the party next fall. Capt. Thomas
will probabably have a little something to
say about it when the time comes. It is
ikely that he or his friends will see, that
the primary meetings are not again pre
sided over by "bummers" who don't know
that thirty-two is more than twenty-seven.
It has been estimated by competent au
thority that a single pair of rabbits, ar
rived at the age of four-and-a-halt years,
might see around them 1,270,000 lineal
deceadants. Rabbits breed at the age of
six months, and have six litters a year ot
from aix to eight young. It is probable
that the fearful mortality among them this
year, evidence of which was visible in this
and nearly all other markets, will not ma
terially affect the crop ot rabbits next year.
Last Sunday the engagement of Mr.
Jno. McAuliff and Miss Julia Conners was
announced in St. Patrick's church for the
first time. Tbe wedding is to oecur within
a month or six weeks. Mr. McAuliff is a
well known engineer. He was for a long
time engineer on one of the tugs in the
harbor and lately on one of the govern
ment fleet at Mempbia. Misa Conners ii
also well known and highly esteemed by
those who know her.
The case of Mary Farley vs. John
Burgois was given the jury yi u rday even
ing about 4:30 o'clock, and a: r being out
about three hours tbejury brought in a vt-r
diet for the plaiotiff, awarding ber $10 in
full of her claim. Court discharged the
jury and adjourned until to-morrow morn
ing. No more jury cases will be tried this
term; hut two or three minor cases are set
for trial by the court to-morrow.
Curhondale Criterion-Democrat: "The
attendance of students is remarkable. The
roll now stands 310, which number has
proven a most agreeable surprise te both
faculty and friends of the school. It is
even better than tbe most sanguine could
have expected under such unfavorable cir
cumstances. It is evident that the prevail
ing sentiment in Southern Illinois is in fa
vor of sustaining a Southern Normal if not
The feeling among railroad managers
against the pay car system Is growing, and
it is probable that, before long, tbe system
will be abolished upon most of the princi
pal railways of the country. A few years
ago the paymasters began to take out
checks for a great many of the principal
employes tn order to avoii the risk of car
rying such large sums of money, and the
plan has worked so well that now tbe
check system will doubtless soon entirely
supersede tbe other.
Science has discovered several valuable
uses for sswdust, so that this refuse matter
assumes a new value. Mr. DeSarento, of
Ontario, bas manufactured illuminating gas
from sawdust, which equals in quality that
made from ordinary coal. Sawdust is ap
plied to a number of purposes in a com
pressed torm, among which are centre
frames of carriage wheets, for which pine
sawdust highly compressed is used. It is
also used for partitions and bricks, and ex
periments are hoped 10 result successfully
in ita use for complex carvings and mould
ings. Some weeks ago a lady living up
town loat a heavy plain gold ring. She
notified the officers of the fact, and they
kept a sharp lookout for the jewol. Late
Friday night Officer Mahanny came upon
a negro who waa trying to sell a ring; the
officer, upon examination, recognized the
ring as the one described to him as having
been lost, and he took possession of it
Tbe negro stated that he had found it, and
as the lady bad simply loat it and bad no
suspicion that it was stolen, the officer let
tbe negro go and returned the ring to its
owner. The ring was worth fifteen or
The young turners of Belleville have
tendered their services to the city council
of that city, as a hook and ladder com
pany, provided the council would furnish
them the necessary outfit. We have in
Cairo also a number of young men, who are
more or less experts in athletic sports
heretofore members of the now defunct
Turner society. A similar offer from a suf
ficient number of them would perhaps in
duce the council here to do something for
them in the way of supplying an outfit.
M" -istrate Comings yesterday after
noon nurried Michael Cahill, a red-hot
Irish-American Democrat, of Chicago, to
Miss Fannie Scott, a coal-black African
Republican, of Greenfield, Tenn. The af
fair may be regarded as emblematic of a
fusion of the parties; but it should be
borne in mind that Republicanism bad the
weaker representative, very likely made all
the concessions snd will probably be "the
under dog" in tbe matrimonial set-tos
that are certain to occur.
During one of the recent cold days,
so we learn from an exchange, the passen
gers on strain on tbe Cairo division of the
Wabash had a lively time of it. The en
gine froze up, near Marshall, and, the wires
being down, could not send for relief, as
no one would undertake to walk to the
next town. About two o'clock in the morn
ing the coal gave out in the cars, and as the
doors were locked to prevent the passengers
making an attack on the tender, the free
ing people begau breaking up sea's and
feeding them to the stove, which bad the
The war between the Vienna Times
and the Marion Monitor, Egyptian Press
and Creal Springs Union counties unaba
ted. The Times claims to have been prom
ised $25 for telling all that is good about
the springs, and after it had performed its
part of the agreement the promised money
was refused, which caused it to retract
what good it bad said about the springs
and to substitute a series of damaging charg
es against tbem and tbeir owners. The
other papers named have been defending
the springs against these attacks and charg
ed tbe Times with an attempt to blackmail
Messrs. Creal and others, whereupon the
Times calls the editors ot these estimable
contemporaries "malicious liars snd infam
ous scoundrels." Brother Parker is angry,
and in hi anger hebeats the muddy, stinking
pool of irresponsible, personal journalism
into foam. He is doubtless honest in all
that he says; be may also be right, but we
protest that be is not esthetic.
Two men, a white man named Snyder
nd a negro, who occupy the farm of Mr.
Hiram Hill, in Kentucky, came over in a
skiff yesterday for empty corn sacks. Tbey
bought five hundred of these from Mr. R.
H. Cunningham and having loaded them
in the skiff got in themselves aoH started
back home about 8:30 o'clock in the after
noon. Tbey went out just above the Illinois
Central wharfboat at bich tbe steamer
Powell was lying at the time; but when
they got opposite the bow of the boat the
current was so strong that they were drawn
under the guards of the boat in spite of
their efforts to avoid it. The white man,
feeeing the imminent danger of being drawn
under the wheel of the boat, grasped some
of the timbers under the guards and let the
bkiff g" irom under him, hut the negro re
mained in 'he skiff, went down with it un
der the wheel of the boat and was drowned.
The akiff and sacks had but been recovered
last evening. Tbe white man was rescued
from his perilous position.
The art classes of the Woman's Club
and Library Association, an advertisement
of which appears in another column, are
now an established fuct, and have started
under flattering auspices. The best Instruc
tions in the different departments have been
provided at reasonable rates and other de
partments will be added In course of time.
A class in English literature is in prospect
and the practical work of the Library Asso
ciation will continue to increase in different
directions in the same line of work. The
lessons of the painting and wood caning
classes at present, are given at the residence
of the teachers, Mrs. Fisher and Mrs.
Korsmeyer; tbe instruction in drawing,
crayon and paittl by Mr. Hough at his
studio, corner of Eighth street and Com
mercial avenue every day in the week, ex
cept Monday. The formation of these
classes will give a great impetus to art
work in Cairo and afford a thorough and
technical training in the principles of art
according to the best methods. Tbe work
of the Woman's Club and Library Associa
tion, in the future, like that in the past
will be a power for good in tbe community,
snd deserves every success.
