The huge wuves occasioned by the
strong wind of last evening made some
abrasions on th3 new levee. The levee
stood about live feet out of the wrier and
the wuves were causing some cuviug nearly
all along the water line. But hardly had
the wind conic up when the perfect organ
isation iTooted nuietly over a week ago by
the (iuthoritics m, ,theis interested in tho
well-fare of the city, w8 set in motion, the
plans rando wvre executed, aud before half
an hour had elanl from the time tho wind
began, there wna ft f.,rce f lllen ,m the pp((t
with all the necewry uppliaiices for pro
tecting the threatened portions of tho levee
against tho action of tho waves, under tho
direction of men who were qualified by ex
perience to do such work. Tho Illinois
Central furnished the conveyance. During
lust night a strong force of men partrolled
tho levee, and worked when necessary.
Thus it will be seen that there has been no
apathy on the part of tho authorities, and
others upon whom we have largely depend
ed in former years for protection against
the river' rage. Tho wind subsided al
most entirely bufore 9 o'clock last night
and with it also tho tho danger to the
It i perh ips needless to sy that the
authorities aud others iu high positions
have taken every necessary precaution
against the flood, and will be prepared to
act promptly aud effectually in case action
shwuld be found necessary. The street
committee, tho mayor, Col. Taylor and Su
perintendent Jeffrey, of tho Illinois Central
railroad, have had conferences in which a
thorough understanding was arrived at,
and plans of action agreed upon, to be ex
ecuted in case it should be necessary. Past
experience has taught the people of Cairo,
that a combination ot the forces .above re
ferred to, backed ly other public spirited
men and directed by the best of judgment
bisod upon experience, is invincible in a
light with the raging flood. Ardent cham
pions of low grade may contain Jtlicir timid
souls in peace in this, the hour of their
tribulations. They and theirs will be
protected, as they have been in formes
The storm of yesterday afternoon un
doubtedly added very materially to the dis
kless of those already suffering from the
flood. Capt. Hiram Hill who came down,
til i Ohio with his boat last evening,
brought with him about twenty-flve people,
all white but two, whom he had rescued
from dingerous positions upon various
em'iK'uees j'Kt above Eist Cairo, in Ken-
tuelty. They bad occupied houses in the
neighborhood, which stood iu water to the
dkpth'of several fe8t. They considered
themselves comparatively safe, and doubt
less would have been for a while longer,
bur for the ferritin wind storm which swept
tile houses, to the number of five, away and
aided the rapid current in dishing them to
pieces against trees aid carrying them in
frtignunts down the river. The peopie
managed. to s ive themselves, it seems, a va
rious ways. Thirteen of the rescued were
found by Capt. Hill, huddled together in a
corn crib that had maintained its founda
tion, wniting anxiously for a rescuer. Capt.
Hill brought the poor people here and
helped them to tind rufugo for tho night.
M udav the trial of David Burko was
resumed in the circuit court and was con
eluded about noon, the jury finding a ver
dict of "not guilty." Burke was charged
with burglarizing Reach's stand on Eighth
street and though ho was not, likn Runner,
caught by tho officers in the act of robbing
the place, ho was seen iu company with
Runner frr several hours previous to the
burglt ry and not half an hour before his
arrest in front of tho burglarized premises
in which Runuer was at tho time engaged
in packing up "booty;" he was seen to enter
the Rough & Ready engine-house withRun-
er, with tho evident purpose of reaching
the back entrance ofResch's house, through
which, it was afterwards discovered, Run
ner had gained euttauue. These circuuutau
oes were sworn to tty three uiiiinpeaehed
and unimpeachable witnesses; yet, when ar
rested, Burke denied all knowledge of
Runner's whereabouts :md said he had not
.seen him that night, Tho jury probably
reasoned, that, as there was no evidence
before them that Runner was guilty of the
crime charged ftgnintt him, except that he
"jumped bail" to avoid trial, therefore the
fact that Burke was setn in his company
just previous to the commission of the crime
auJ was arrested almost on the premises
where, aud at the very time when, the
crime was being committed, was not good
on ofof his complicity in the crime. This
trinl concluded, the court took up the case
of Mr. Geo. Jones, or "Jay Gould" as he is
called ly the olricers, a negro who is charg
ed with practicing an ingenious confidence
game upon a number of "innocent" colored
people. His trial was concluded about
noon ; he wbs found guilty aud his punish
ment fixed at three years in the "pen."
Court took up no other corse in the after
noon, but disposed tt some minor business
and adjourned until this murning, for
which the case of the negro woman Cotton,
cln.rged with poisoning the negro family
0.1 Fifteenth street, is set.

.'BW York, Feb. 19. In December hist
an anonymous letter waa received by In
spector Byrnes at police headquarters say
ing that two met had robbed aeveral per
sons ou t'i.'tli avenue between Twenty-tlfth
and Twenty-ninth streets in broad daylight.
Tin unknown writer represented that one
of tbe tuievf represented himself a a cen
tral otllee detective and in pretending to
search tbe victim would take from him all
the valuables on his person. The detectives
nenttolnvestig-.no the matter could find
no one who would acknowledge having
hei-u robbed In the manner described. On
February 10, John Day, a batter, of No.
VA Park Row, called upon Inspector
Byrnes and said that bo was walking along
Fifth avenue on the previous night, when
a well-dressed, pleasant-spoken yming man
politely asked him tho way to the Gramercy
1'arK Hotel. "I am going In that direction
myself, '' aid Mr. Day, "and will guldd
j uu wttli pleasure. " The young man ex
pressed his thanks and began a conversa
tion so lively that Mr. Day did not notice
a second stranger, who was walking a few
steps behind him. Suddenly, however,
the halter felt powerful bands upon his
elbows, and before he could move or make
any outcry his gold watch anil chain, a silk
umbrella, $11 In cash, a diamond -pin and
a pair of eye-glasses were taken from bim
by the young stra iger, who with his ac
complice then ran away. Last Tuesday
Mr. Augustine E. i. Oelnehs, who lives
in Unlink, n, and docs business at No. 158
W iter street, was

"A little way. "
"So am I. Perhaps you will not object
to my company for a few blocks. ' '
"Not in the least," said Mr. Oeiricti.
They mopped and looked iu a second
Jeweler's window, and Mr. Oelrichs made
a futile effort to rid himself of bin loquaci
ous companion. Then they eontlnuod to
walk down the avenue until they came
to Nineteenth street, where they young
mau suddenly cav.ght Mr. Oelrichs hy tbe
arm and called out, "OHicer Uutton."
A muscular, surly looking rutllau then ap

"What has he done?" '
"Arrest him! Arrest him!" exclaimed
the smooth-faced man with great apparent
excitement. "He tried to commit an as

"Well," said tbo thief, "you bad better

"I can't do that," said the blackmailer.
