The St. Louis and Cairo freight depot
and office which, as all here know, stand
out over the river outside the Ohio levee
at the point, are submerged to the depth of
several inches on the floor and Capt. Wil

third Illinois general assembly, announced
himself as a candidate for the nomination

can convention on the 14th of April, and
asked the gentleman addressed to use his
influence here in his favor.
The steamer Fowler mad her last
trip to Paducah yesterday. She will lay up
at Paducah until the water goes down.
The reason assigned is that there is no busi
ness and that landings are difficult to make.
There is no connection between Cairo and
Paducah now, except in a round about way
over the southern division of the Illinois
River and weather news from all
around us yesterday wu very encouraging.
Declines were reported from Chattanooga,
Cincinnati, Louisville, Naahville, Pittsburg
and Owensboro, while a rise of only nine
incbts wu reported from St. Louis. Though
the barometer generally was low, alight
rains wtre reported only from Pittsburg
The Wabash freight train yesterday
came into this city u usual, but it had to
swim through thirty inehes of water just
above Mound City. Passenger traina have not
been running since Sunday, and last night
the steamer Three States was engaged to
carry the passengers of the road to Cale
donia, from where they will be transferred
to the train at Olmstead every day.
A party of Cairoites, consisting of
Capt. Shields, of the Anchor Line, Postmas
ter Murphy, Mr. Sol. A. Silver, of the
Opera House company, and several other
gentleman intended to take a trip on the
Fowler to Paducah to day; but their plan
has been fruitratsd by the Fjwler's Isying
up at Paducah. . They ibtended to make
tho trip tor the same reason that Eve gob
bled the apple, curiosity they wanted to

The show at the Comique last night
wu semethiog above the average ot any
other given at that house. Messrs. Frazer A
Allen, in their musical sketches, entitled
"Arrival of Cousin Cel." was something
wonderful, to say the least. Messrs. Slier
wood & Williams also gave great satisfac
tion in their song and dance and wonderful
musical talent. Miss Macsie Mauri nd

j naieen mues soovt nere, bad eighteen inj
ches more than lut year, the river hero
lacked fourteen inchts ef being up to its
lut year's mark. Tho cause of this fact
it to be found in the difference in the
width of the rivers here and at the points
named, and in the fact that the Mississippi
is carrying the water off at an unusually
rspid rate. Tho river is probsbly twenty
five miles wide just below this city and the
current is probably five miles per hour.
The Illinois Central has commenced
transferring cars to and from this city at
Wickliffe instead of East Cairo, Ky. The
wster has washed out portions of the track
between Wickliffe and East Cairo. The
Mobile and Ohio road still runs into East
Cairo, however, though the water is pour
ing in a strong current from the Kentucky
bottoms, through the trestle supporting the
tracks, into the Ohio. The company has
had the trestle protected by bags of dirt
and these scein to afford all the protection
expected of them. From present indica
tions the Mobile fc"and Ohio track at EBt
Cairo will not be disturbed much by the
flood. . The Illinois Central has every neces
ary convenience at Wicklifle and trains
come ond go witnout any interruption or
change of time. Later: The Mobile &
Ohio road also began transferring from
Wickliffe last night.
Jno. Barton, of the Free Press, has re
turned from his hunting tour to Washing
ton, empty handed, so far as known : but
that doog not prevent him from giving a
list and brief biographies of other dis
tinguished Southern Illinois Republicans
who fared better. In this list, which is
about a column long, we find the following
proof that Barton hat a bad case of
"msih," if we may be permitted to cull a
word from the voluminous vocabulary of
the vulgar: "Capt. John A. Reevo. of
Cairo, late clerk of the house of representa
tives of Illinois, fills a position in the sen
ate, and will remain at the capital during
the session. John is storing his mind with
knowledge that will be valuable to the peo
ple of this senatorial district when he rep
resents them in the legislature a period
not far in the future. The necessities of
Carbondale and Jackson county msy de
mand that Mr. Scurlock again be sent to
tho legislature, but in the event that gentle
man should refuse to respond to that de
mand, then the Free Press will boom John
A. Reeve, the maimad soldier, the unflinch
ing Republican, the capable business man
and the A No. good fellow." We hope,
ardently, that, for the dear sake of the
heretofore severely virtuous Barton, that
he may not awaken from his sentimental
dream to find that he "loved not wisely but
The traveling correspondent of the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, "writing up" Padu
cah in yesterday's issue of the paper, gives
very minute description of the state of af
fairs in that town; and several gentlemen,
citiiens of Paducah, who were in the city
last night, confirmed the report ss given in
the Glebe. According to this ac
coont forty-three blocks of Paducah are
submerged. A further rise of two feet will
cover every inch of ground in the city.
Hogs and cows are being driven together
upon the higher portion of the principal
streets in the city u the water closes in rap
idly from all sidws. It is the opinion of
Mayor Reed, expressed to the Globe-Democrat
representative Sunday, that not less
that 1,000 people huddled, together in
the churches, court houso and other public
buildings, would need aid immediately.
The citizens made up a fund of $500 wlun
the water first began to come in, but that
wuall exhausted, and Sunday Mr. Hewitt,
tho agent appointed to distribute a fund of
$100,000 appropriated by the state, arranged
to turn over to raducah her share. Speak
ing of the little controversy between The
Bulletin and News, tha writer says:
"Thert are just two things which go to
ward reconciling Paducah to the desperate
strait abe is in. One is the thon-rhtthat
the man who was here in '67 and has never
quit talking about that flood will be shut
up from this time forward. Another cause
for self-congratulation ia the fact that all
this water will have to go bj Cairo. For
two weeks the Paducah Newt and the
Cairo Bulletin havo been working up a
flood controversy, and each cordially hoping
the other may got tho worst dose on record.
Thompson, the Paducah editor, got rather
the best of it by publishing an alleged list
of forty families who had come here as a
place of safety. That was only two days
ago. This morning Thompson was strad
dling a fence ta go aomewhere in search of
a skiff. Ten days ago Paducah sent twenty
small boats to Shawneetown. The man
who went into that speculation is kicking
himself for his stupidity, tor any kind of a
cratt now commands a fabulous price here.
All day long the noise of the hammer has
been hoard, and on tho porches ot houses
all over the city flat-boats in various sts?ea
oi construction are w ue seen."
