A dispatch from Jackson County to
Hod. D. T. Linegar yesterday stated that
the county Convention had instructed its
delegates to tbe several other conventions
to cast their votes for gJu lge Brosa for
Lieutenant-Governor, Capt. Thomas Wilson
for member of the Board of Equalization,
and Hon. D. T. Linegar for the Lower
Ilouse of the State Legislature. The dis
patch said nothing about other candidates,
and this is taken as on indication that the
convention also instructed fir Albright und
. When the weather is lino and the
streets dry citizens should take a drivo out
to St. Mary's Park, along the levee and up
the county road. After living clown in the
city for six or eight months of the year
seeing only bare streets and diut and the
confusion of noibes and sights attended up
on the ordinary out-door business of a city
like Cairo, it will be really refreshing to
tako a drive out to the Park and get a
glimpse of fresh green grass and clover and
trees; or along the levee and experience the
peculiar sensation of being on top of a hill
considerably above the heads ot those who
remain in the city, inhale the iuvigoratiug
breezes that blow from the Mississippi, and
also to gain some idea of the cspacity of
the fortifications behind which we expect
to live in perfect security and quiet during
future great floods. A sight of the levee
alone will do any citizen's heart good and
amply repay birn for a buggy hire, etc., for
it is a magnificent embankment.
Circuit Court was occupied nearly all
day yesterday in the trial tf a negro named
Albert Green, charged with robbing an
aged negro woman of what little money
she had saved. The cise is an unusually
aggravating one. The negro broke into
the woman's room in what was then one of
the shanties comprised iu the so-called
"Cat-fish Row" on Ohio Levee. The old
woman, probably nearly sixty years old,
defended herself and struggled hard to
keep her little treasure; but the black fiend
laid violent hands upon her, overpowered
her and tore her clothing in search of the
money which he finally found and tok
possession ef just as the officers came uron
him and took him in charge. States' At
torney Leek developed all the harrowing
details of the crime before the jury an 1
made a characteristically vigorous argu
ment on behalf of the people and of justice.
The case wis given to the jury about 4
o'clock and, strange to say, a: six the jury
was still out, evidently in doubt as to
whether the wretch shoulJ hi hung or sent
to the penitentiary for life.
Some idea may be gised uf the work
that has been done on the oi l Mississippi
levee within the last few weeks, by direc
tion of Col. Taylor asd under the immedi
ate supervision of Alderman McHa'.e, fr- m
the statement a rock revetment has beea
built, eighteen inches thick, nice feet hi'a
and two thousand feet long. This wU
covers almost entirely the outer slope of the
levee proper and has a fall to war! the
river of probably two feet perpendicular to
one horizontal. The rock is all picked
closely together and will be firmly cement
ed after having once been covered by the
muddy stream against which it is aimed to
protect the bank. It was built in just
about ten days time, which proves that
there wasn't any fooling among the nu-n un
der Mr. McHale's direction. The wall wi'l
be extended several hundred feet further
down and will then cover the strotch of the
levee that was most threatened wl'en the
river was up. It is the superstructure of
the base that is to be built by the Govern
ment with the fifty thousand dollar appro
priation recently askedin Congress. The Gov
ernment work will consist of laying mat
tresses along tho bottom of the river bank
and building up a similar rock revetment
to a point where tho river leaves its bank
and touches the levee proper, or rather the
stone wall that is now about to be finished
by Mr. McHale's force. Col. Taylor has
already had much work done on the bank
below the water line, but it is too big a
job for private enterprise; it is properly the
duty of the Government, for it affects the
channel of the river, and the Government
alone can accomplish the work needed.

Washington, I). C, May 21. The
:oroiuoiiies incidental to the dedication
Jt the Luther statue, which bland iu
iront of .Memorial Lutheran Church, were
:ouduoted this afteruoou, when the statue
was formally unveiled. The exercises
took place on a platform built about the
pedestal, which covered tho eutire park
u.uuen 11 ami me ctiurcli, aud when the
exercises begau the 1 ,''00 seats provided
were tilled and many spectators were
ttauding on the walks and in the streets.
Directly in front of the statue were seated
tie .-peakers, aud above them was
stretched a canvas partition as a protec
tion irc-m the sun. A blue cord was sus
pended at one side, and was connected
with an American flag which concealed
the statue from view. Justice Millerpre
sided, iu place of Chief Justice Waito,
who was iletaiut'd by sickness. Seated
near him were the speakers, the oiticers
of the association aud invited guests,
including piomineut .Southern cler
gymen from various States.
The exercises commenced with tho
renditiou of ''The Heavens are Telling,"
by the Marine Band. Prayer was then
offered by Kev. F. W. Conrad, of Phila--e-lphu.
A brief but interesting history
of the statue was read by Kev. J. G.
Sutler, to whose untiring efforts) the sue
:ess of the movement which culminate!
in the erection of the tatue Is largely
due. This was followed by Voikman's
'organ Sonata." by the band. Son
itor Conner, of Michigan, delivered
the address of the div, and Kev.
J. S. Morris, D. D.", spoke at
s.'iae length. The cord attached to tie
tiiZ covering the statue was; tneu pulled,
and, as the drapery fell, disclosing tt.e
face of the great Reformer, the band re
itred Luther's famous Battle Hymn. Tie
:eroinon;es were brought toa close w:;i
tSe benediction, pronounced by Kev. Dr.
AiOert, ol rniladelpLia. This even

"I think," said the gentleman, "that
the Committee wild favor the passage of
that part of Hewitt's bill proposing to
simplify collections of existing duties,
wtjicti was prepared at the Jreasury De-
partrne-nt: but beyond that, unless some
thing unforset-n occurred, there would be
no further agitation of the tariff ipjes
