Tho famous ltov. Mr. Turney compll
mentcd us with a call on last Tuesday
Tho Reverend gentleman, now on tho Me
tropolis circuit, had been In the direction
of Chicago looking aftor his great book on
tho Sabbath. lie ascertained with regret
that tho plates and MSS. of the work had
been destroyed by tho lato Chicago flro.
This a fearful misfortune. Mr. Turnoy
had labored on tho book three long years
had risen with tho lark, or tho earliest
bird of this neck of woods, andhadbiirnod
the midnight oil; and think of it I In a
moment, so to speak, tho results of his la
bor wcro destroyed. Ills loss Is great, but
not so groat as tho loss to the world In be-
ng deprived of tho rcsu'ts of Turncy's
weary work. Mr. Turney, although some
what eccentric, has an intellect which
may bo called gigantic. It is much rnoro
gigantic than Preacher Hughoy's. All
his Intellect he bad brought to the prepar
ation of bis book, nnd, beyond all doubt,
it nxed tho Sabbath question fixed It in
the Immovable position of ascertained
truth. But now as tho work is destroyed,
tho Sunday question Is again unfixed, and
must remain so until tho learned gentle
man can go over tho Immense Hold of
learning heretofore traveled by him, and
again cull from that field its great crop of
Sunday knowledge.
COUNTY AFFAIRS.
Around Thebes all Is quiet. Every
body in that patt of tho county Is for Mar
tin, democratic candidate for county treas
urer. Tho boards of registry for tho two
city precincts, will meet in their respec
tive prcclntcs, on Tuesday, October 31, to
revise and complete the poll books.
The county court declare the county
too poor to fill the court house squaro to
grade. Of course tho court knows herself,
and wo submit to its judgment, but the fill
ing of the square would add so much to
tho appearance of tho courthouse that wo
shall over pray, etc.
County Jailer Fitzgerald is tearing
mad. Ho lias always boasted that no pris
oner could cscap: his vigilance. During
tho past five years ho has held tho keys of
the county Jail, and, in all that time, un
til "Wednesday night, has succeeded in
keeping his paws upon tho prisoners placed
under his .charge. But Murry and Wil
liams wero too sharp for him, and they
arc gone from his gaze like a beautiful
dream.
Tho proposition tonuthorizo the coun-
tv court to issue bonds to build a new jail
is meeting with considerable opposition.
It is argued that tho present jail is good
enough for sovcral years to come, and that
the pcoplo of Cairo and Alexander county
aro already taxed to the very limit of their
ability to pay. If thcro is any county in
the state in greater need of n jail than
Alexauder wo are nut aware of tho fact.
Every grand jury that has bcon in session
foryesrs has denounced tho present jail as
n nuisance. But, we rccognizo the forco
of tho too-much tux argument; and, If tho
proposition should go by tho board, wu
shall not weep a bucketful of tears.
GENERAL MATTERS.
Chief of Police Myers entertained the
public near Thk Bulletin office yester
day with u free 'possum exhibition.
A funeral of three persons passed
along Washington avenue yesterday af
ternoon. It was small but solemn.
The sinking of tho stoamor, "Sallie,"

JAIL BIRDS FLOWN.

COUNTY JAIL WHO T1IKY ARE, AND
UOW THKY DID IT LinF.KAI. RKWARD
OFFKRKI).
Our rcadors will recollect, that, about
two months ago, a daring attempt was
mado to rob tho grocory store of Mr. D. Ar
tor. Thobuglar'snamo is Jnmcs L. Murry,
anu no is evidently an oxpcrlcnco cracks
man. At nbout four o'clock in tho morn
ing ho entered tho storo room nnd was in
the act of blowing open tho safe, which ho
had loaded, when Charles Artor discovered
him at his dangerous work, and, raising
an alarm, succeeded In offcctlng his arrest.
Judgo Bross bound him
over, and, at tho last term
of tho clrciut court, ho obtainod a con
tinuance by making affidavit that Impor
tant witnesses of his were absent from tho
county and their prcsonco could not ,bo
procured In tlmo to go to trial. Ho is n
small man, with sharp gray eyes, high
cheek bones, unshaved face and whiskers
about four inches long on his chin.
On Wednesday night, with Charlio
Williams, nnothor thlof , Murry succeeded
In breaking out of tho county jail and ma
king his escape. Understanding their
business, they managed, in some mystori
ous way, te pick tho lock of tholr cell and
get Into tho ball. They then went noiseless
ly to work, and effected an exit through
the wall. brcaklne a hole
in tho brick masonry largo enough to ad
mit tho passage of their bodies.
lostorday morning, Jailer Fitzgerald
found tho cago of his favorite birds cmp
ty,and raised tho alarm. Sheriff Irvin had
hand bills printed immediately offering
$100 roward for the apprehension of Mur
ry and $25 for the arrest of Williams.
Tho pursuit is being vigorously prosecuted,
and tho capture of the rascals is confi
dently expected.
POLICE REPORT-
Before Police Magistrate Jlross.l
John Solsbury was arrested by Shee-
han for being drunk. He was fined' and
not being able to pay, was sont to the cal
aboose. Ho will assist McIIalo in repair
ing the sidewalks.
A printer, named Carotbcrs, having
indulged too freely in Barclay's Saratoga
water, was mistaken by Officer Shcehan
for a drunken man and was arroited. Af
ter being placed in tho calaboose, Carolh-
ors woks tho echoes by crying flro at tbe
top of his voice. Mcllale, who has a pe
culiar persuasive way about him, soon per
suaded tbe noisy man to bo quiet. Yes
terday Bross lined the inebriate $5 and
costs, nnd City Attorney Pope agreed to
not collect tho money provided tho unfor
tunato man should immediately ovacuate
tho city. Ho traveled.
As will be remembered by many of
our readers, some time during tho year
18C7 ono of our police magistrates united
a couple in marriage in a commercial
avenue livery stable and that the particu
lars of the affulr were mado the subject of
an elaborate and flaming illustration in tho
National Police Gazette. After their mar
riage thoy left Cairo and went to Grand
Tower, whero they wont to housekeeping,
and, lo all appearances, lived as quietly
and comfortably together as mnrrlcd peo
plo generally do. About a year ago
howover, tho woman " got tho devil in
her, " nnd it is alloged attempted to poi
son her man and camo noar making n
good job of it. She then left him and
camo back to Cairo. Yesterday morning,
Crooks, for that is his name, came to
town and went to sec Mrs. Crooks. Bo.
foro thoy purled they had somo high old
wordss and Mrs. Crooks declared she
would have him arrested. She went be
fore tho magistrate who had married thim
and sworo out n warrant against
Mr. Crooks for abusivo
language. The warrant was placed in
tho hands of an officer who wont in search
of tho accused man. In tbe meantimo,
howover, somo of Mr. Crooks' friends pre
vailed upon his "better half" not to appear
against him. Crooks was brought into
rnnrt. but ns his wife was not there to
swear against him, the esse was dismissed
at tho plaintiffs costs. His troubles did
nnt mid here, however, for in ono or his
pockets was dlsoovercd a hugo revolver
a regular young buttery, and ho was fined
85 and tho costs for carrying concoaled
weapons, which ho paid. As Mrs. Crooks
was not in court, nn execution for tho
coats in tho first case was issued and
placed in tho hands of an officer forcollcc
tlon. Lato in tho afternoon Mr. Crooks
and Mrs. Crooks camo marching down
Washington avenne, arm in arm np
parcntly the most loving couple in tho
world. Hut at tho corner of Tenth street
thoy met tho officer who held tho execution
and ns Mrs. Crooks had not tho ncccssnry
"whorowith" to liquidate, alio was in liou
thereof locked up in tho calaboose. Mr.
Crojks could not bear to see his devoted and
afTectlonato wifo thus treated, and at last
accounts was making overy effort to bor
row tho amount necessary to purchaso her
freedom. "Slch is Ufa" with the Crooks-

ITEMICAL POLITICS.
Tho suggestion of a glass of bcor for
tho stomach's sako, took away tho breath
of Mr. Millor, rndlcnl eandlduto for clork,
and his rocovory was for somo tlmo doubt
ed. Boor nnd niggers nro his aversion,
and ho doos not tako cithor ovon In small
doses. So say his christian friend ,.
-Tho friends of Mr. Millor nro prom
ising tho pcoplo of Cairo, tha', If ho
should be elected county assessor, their
property will be assessed down nnd tho
county precincts bo assosscd up. Thoy
say Mr. Martin is not a Cairo man ; that
ho has lived in tho country and sympa
thises with tho country pcoplo; that Mr.
-Hiiicr, on tno outer hand. Is omtihatlcnllr
a Cairo man ; has never been out in
tho country precincts of tho county, nud
will favor Cairo and sco to it that tho
county is loaded to tho guards with her
share of taxes. Now, this is a moan way
of electioneering, and Is Intended lo win
votes for Miller In tho city, and may do so;
but, nevertheless Martin will walk Miller's
log. If Miller wishes to mako an issue
between tho city nnd country ho can bo
accommodated. Martin Is ready to mcot
hltn on any issuo ho may scare up,
