that the eighty boys which it would rn
quire to keop tho lamps in order, could
nlso catch the tlsh, ns they pass down the

supply the consumption. Another gentle

thing, but as ho is in tho habit of mixing

that he meant the ''crude" article. The

IIAtlNIO A lAI) HIKTORY A CHRISTIAN
MINISTKK INllKElt.
Whilo the greater part of tho mitery
and ruin evolved from the late war will
ever remain a myitcry, it I not' tin fre
quently that we fall upon bits of individual
history, which soryu to Illustrate with al
most unerring certainty, tho severity,
misfortune nnd hardship to which count
Icji thousand were subjected during tho
struggle, and which the lapse of time ha
failed to etadicato. Tho story of
eoiiA mtacy'h
life is a case in point. Horn in Obiou
county, Tennessee, a few miles distant
from Union City, of well-to-do and intel
ligent parent:, she nttained womanhood
nnd social position under circumstances
denied to tho many and let favored of her
sex. She had received the superficial to,.
malo education of the period; possessed a
pleasing, if not beautiful taccj a good fig
ure, and an easy, dignified deportment;
surrounded by money, doting parents, a
plottsant home, and tho admirer which
ever follow in the wako of nil these, it was,
indeed, a strango frenk of fato which
blasted the possessor of them ns with a
breath, nnd plunged her headlong in a
career of dissipation nnd shame. During
the
KAI.I. AND WINTER OF 1 804,
and indeed for over two years previous, tho
federal troops iccuplcd nil tho country
along the lino of the Mobile and Ohio
railroad, between Humboldt, Tenn., and
Columbus, Ky. Cora' parents wore
staunch union people, ar.d of course their
homo was a favorito resort for tho officers
of tho troops stationed thereabout.
Itetwoon Cora and one of the frequent
visitor of this class ono who woro the
''eagles" of the army upon hie shoul
der an acquaintance was formed
which soon ripened into intimacy. It
was tho old, old story over again. 'Irv
ing not wisely, but too well; confiding
where there was no return; trusting only
in him, who finally accomplished her
ruin. After a time the troops wero as
signed to another po.-t, and the gay Lotha
rio left nevor,during her stay there, to re
turn. Filled with remorse and shame ;
hoping against hopo to again meet him
whom she held above all things, she
fled from home, and after a fruitless
Acnrch for him over tho country,
I.A N 1 1 K Ii IN CAIRO,
in the spring of If 07, and entered tho most
fashionable as well as the met notorious
bagnio in tho city at that time. A
few years of this life of disiipation
nnd khatno soon did its work.
About three months " ago she de
veloped nn incurable caso of consump
tion was driven from her abode for lack of
monoy and of friends, and was compelled
to seok n refugo in tho very vilost sink
of iniquity, kept by nn old negro wench,
who.'o nnmo is synonomous with nil that
is wicked in our midst. During her sick-
ncss, however, the facta of her condition
and the circumstances of her life reached
the ears of
ONK OF OUR MINISTKRH,
whose efforts in alloviating the uffering
of her dying days, proclaim him a worthy
oxponent of gonuino Christianity indeed.
Out of his own pocket, and with the aid of
some friends to whom ho made the fact
known, ho daily supplied her wants, and
gavo such spiritual consolation a tho oc
casion called for, rendering thus, tho last
remnant of her life, the one green pot
she had known for year. On Thursday
morning last the died, when her body was
taken- in charge of by a numbor of the
dtmi-iiiomle, for tho purpose of
MIDNIGHT UURIAI..
AYhy this time was selected for the funeral
we are not nbla to divine, but that it was
is an undeniahlo fact. Tl o remains wore
placed in a coflln, escorted to tho 11:45
p.m. train by u body of domircps, nnd
thonco conveyed to Villa llidge. It will
bo remembered that on Thursday nigbt
last tho rain, about midnight, poured down
in torrents. In tho midst of this, tho god-
an chcort, with tho romnins, left tho train,
and scrambled up the hills as best thoy
might, to tho burying ground. Into the
gravo tho remains wero hurriedly shuffled
and covered with earth, without a christian
oul to utter a last prayer or say an omen
for tho unfortunate Cora.

THE STREET FILLING CASE,
WALTER KAI.I.S VS. TIIK CITY OK CAIRO.
In tho Hollktin of yostorday wo pub
lished the opinion in full of the supremo
court of tho statu in tho case of AVnltor
Fall va. tho city of Cairo. The caso was
submitted for decision at tho Inst January
torm of tho supremo court, at Springfield,
and tho opinion of tho court, delivered by
judge Sholdon, was filed n weok or two
ago.
Falls, in tho spring of lBf8, paid certain
specinl assessment for strcot filling,
amounting to $1,002.00 upon cortaln lota
of hi fronting upon "Washington avenuo
nnd Poplar street. In tho spring of 1870,
he brought suit in our circuit court to re
cover back the money thus paid, basing
right to recover on four certain ground,
sot out in full in tho opinion. Judgo Ma
ker, at tho following September torm, 1870
of the court, decidod that Falls wns not
entitled to recover back thej money, and
gavo judgment In favor of tho city. From
this judgment, Falls appealed to the su
premo court where tho deciiion of tho
circuit court, it now appears, was affirmed.
Aside from the amount of money in
volved, the caso has been regarded a ono
of considerable importance, inasmuch as
it represent a large number of othurcaes
or claim standing substantially in the
(auio situation.
Many person who paid their assess
ment feel that it is unjust for them to have
to pay interest on the Fox, Howard A Co.
bonds, and to bo bound to pay any pnrt of
the principal of tho same when they fall
duo.
Tho failure to collect a largo number of
thcto assessments, in tho first place, has
led to much litigation, nnd has really been
the ground or cause of complaint that ha
been made. It is hardly worth while now
to say that all tho difficulty, troublo and
complaint might havo been avoided. No
ono will hardly undertake to say how,
when, or where, it might lmvo been
avoided, tavo, that if tho city had not un
dertaken to fill the street, nothing of this
kind would have taken place a very satis
factory piece of information indeed.
It would seem that the deciiion settles
most, if not all, the questions growing out
of the failure to collect that asemont,
especially those questions touching tho
labilities of the city to refund tho money
received from tho persons who paid their
assessments.
Tho court holds that the payment by
Falls after judgment against his lots, and
while ti precept was in the hands of the
officer authorizing him to sell the lots
only, and not his peroijal property, was n
voluntary and not a foinpnliory payment
was a payment mado with a full knowl
edge of all tho facts, nnd could not be re
cloved back, although tho assessment may
have been Illegal that If the proceed
ings were illegal, no matter if they were
carriel forward to a Hale of the lots, tho
owner's title thereto was not thereby en
dangered. After adverting to tho rules
of law, governing tho payment of monoy
for the relief of one's person or goods, and
shewing that tlioy J not apply to cases
ofrealestato situated as these lots were,
the court goes on to say " Hut the im
provement was not abandoned ; it was
completed, and the money paid by the
plaintiff was not retained by tho city, but
was nppllod towards tho expense of tho
improvement."
Tho plaintiff has but paid tho amount
of tho special benefit which hi property
desired from the improvement."
Thi language of the Court, together
with tho remainder of the opinion imme
diately following tho language quotod,
teem not only applicable to the particular
caso boforo tho Court, but alio applicable
to all tho other caso whero nessmenta
were paid. Tho opinion will no doubt
receive a careful examination from those
persons who are interested in the question
it decide and discusses. It publication
in the Hullitin lays it in convenient
hapo before such persons for porusol and
reference.
A WIFE Fj)RA WEEK.

"giTITl.
Mr. and Mrs. , with rythmical, mu-
Ically sounding, names aro a pair of indi
viduals, who, after hankering
after each othor for a period
of several months, finally coalesced that
is to say, married. For twenty-four hours
all went merry as that marriage bell which
should have sounded for tho eventful
period in Mr. nnd Mrs. ' life, but
didn't. After thi tiino Mr. hecamo
uneasy. Mrs. ' affection began, to
her bettor-half mind, to wano-to grow
cold; and, with tho oyo of tho green-oyed
monster, thought ho had discovered in
her a disposition to to back on him. Hid-
ding h' fiery oul to bo patlont, ho watched
and waited. What the result oi mi
manceuvcr on hi part was, wo havo boon
unable to learn. But that something dM
hnppon Is very evident from tho fact that
Mr. - - was not tmmeuiaieiy auacaeu
with a tit of insanity or a morbid deslro to
slaughter tomcthing j neither did ho con
