About i o'clock yesterday morning
Mr. Joe Burnett, watchman on the steamer
City of Providence lying at the wharf, wss
shot in the left arm by a cegro who board
ed the boat without any business and with
the evident intention of stealing something.
The watchman found the negro in the rear
part of the deck and uked his business.
The negro answered that he was bound for
St. Louis. Being asked to show bis ticket,
he at first refused doggedly, but finally
showed a red card that was not a passage
ticket at all. The watchman thereupon or
dered him from the boar, and when the
negro refused to go, took hold of him and
tried to fores him off. During the struggle
which ensued the negro drew his pistol
and fired twice at the watchman and then
fled. One of the shots missed, the other
struck the watchman in the left arm, above
the elbow, and completely shattered the
bone. The wound was properly dressed
by Dr. Parker, and the patient taken to the
marine hospitsl here f r further care.

cah belle who is here "on a visit," you

out from between the front legs of the

to stick her heels under the chair far enough
to bring her toes within the wide range of

Jonesboro Gazette: "A. majority of
the whita voters of this district are farmers,
and they are represented in congress by s
high tariff Republican, an extremist on
this u well u every other political question.
The farmers are more deeply concerned in
this tariff question than any other class of
voters. They pay more taxes and get the
least benefit. The tax they psy on the
clothes they wear and the food they buy
and the implements tbey use, leaves them
no margin to show for a season's work, un-
ess it is an exceptionally prosperous sea
son. With a reduction of tbo odious war
tariff there would be an improvement.
The articles it is necessary for them to
buy would be cheaper, while there could
be no reduction in the price of their pro
ductions from this cause. Will th-y vote
for a high tariff representative
to congress this yearf We think
net." The Gazette argues well. It
might have asked many more similar
questions and given a confident negative
answer tu them all, among them, this one,
Will the voters of the Twentieth district
elect a man to represent them in the Furiy
ninth congress, who, when there, will rote
to collect $183,000,000 annually from the
people, in excess of what is needed to carry
on the government even in an extravagant
manner! We answer with the Gazette,
"we think not."

Pendleton sent to tbe clerk's desk a tele
