It was reported on Monday that the
Mississippi river between Cairo and St
Louis was clear of ice, and that several
light draught boats had undertaken to
ascend tho river to tht latter city. The re
port seems to bo unfounded, however, for
even if there Is no ice, the river is so low
that it would be sheer foolishness for
even amallost boats In the trade to Httompt
10 reach that port.

It should not bo forgotton that Prof.

in this city, commencing on Tuesday
ovenlng, January 2d, 1872. From the
Minneopolis (Minn.) Evening Xcivs, of De
cember Cth, wo copy tho following compli
mentary ,notico of Mr. Denton's lectures
in that city :
i'rof. Denton's oponing lecturo was
largoly attendod, and tho audience eat as
if SDoll-bounu uurinc tho lone talk of an
hour and n half. No other spcukor that
wo over heard, invests tho dry subject of
goologv with such intorcst us rroi. lien
ton. Tho eloquenco of tho man is some
times perfectly astounding, nnd tho only
regret is that his delivery is so rapid that
the mind lins not suiiicicnt timo to uwoii
on tho bcautv of his flights. Instruction
and plcasuro aro combined in tho highest
degree in listening to rroi. uenton. xne
lecture this evening will commenco pre
cisely nt hnlf past seven.
Itisn fact thai the Gilbert dramatic
troupoluivo received very littlo oncournao-
' incut from tho citizens or Cairo, it is
truo thero aro a numbor of our peo
ple that luivo patronized them well, but
tho great majority of our play-going poo
plo have not oven bcon nt tho thentro ono
evening. No ono who has on any ovening
einco thoir oponing in this city, glanced
over tho uudienco can hare failed to ob
Fcrvo tho great prcponderenco of strangers
present. This spoaks well for our city,
for it is an cvidonco that a great many
strnngers aro visiting us on business, and
all that ; but it docs not.spcak so well for
tho pooplo who livo here. Whcnovcr
the theatre is closed, and thero is no
placo of amusement for them to spend
thcirevenings, they do an exceedingly flno
article of grumbling; and denounce tho
town as dry, tho lessoo of tho Athonoum
as stupid, and in a thousand other wayi
mnko manifest thoir lovo of ontortainmont
and amusement. Just nt this timo thoro is
a oxcollent opportunity for thorn to show
their appreciation of tho cfl'orts of tho
lessee of the Atheneum to furnish them
with good and cheap amusement, The
strnngers who have visited tho city during
tho past two wcoks liavo supported tho
troupu, and now lut tho town's pooplo
turn out and givo thorn goodheusos tliobnl
anco of thoir stay nmong us. As will bo
acknowledged by nil who have seen them

Robert Pinkorton, of tho Pinko rton
dc'.cctivo fjreo of Chicago, passed t'roug h
Cairo Monday in charge of 11 in in by tho
namoofLevi Farrlngton, the Inst of tho
Union City express robbers. Farrlngton
was enptured at Furmlngton, Illinois. It
is Btrango that tho man Taylor, who i
reportod to have bocn captured at Reel
Foot lnkc, has never boon montioncd in
connection with theso robberies boforo,
Wo havo boon given this version! of tho af-
fair, us tho incident that lod to tho capturo
ofthoontire gang: After tho last rob
bory, a piece of bakor's bread and a can of
cove oysters woro found near whero tho
train was stopped and ransack
on. ino broad and oystors
wero plckod up and put away,
but tho ofllcors in and about Union City,
mougui mat 01 courso, they were dropped
by some or tlio aim loyees of tho rond.
When eho Pinkorton detectives undertook
to " work up tho caso," tho bread nnd oys
tors woro tho first things they "dropped on''
as a cluu to tho robbery. Thoy took them,
and soon found whero and by whom thov
had been purchased. Taylor bought tho
bread and oystors nt a bakory In Union
City, as is supposed to bo oaten by tho
robbers in caso thoy woro compelled to re
main in tho woods. Taylor was of course
a hail follow woll met with tho detectives,
and has never left Union City, nnd it is
pretty miro has been playing Into tho
hands of tho ollleers, believing thnt by so
doing lit would cscapo the ur.ds of justice.
Jso sooner, however, woro nil tho rest of
the gang arrested than Taylor was in
formed that "ho was wanted." In tho
words of tho detnetivo who gavo us this
of information,
Taylor

if elected thoy will be pretty sure lo havo
lifo time situations.
Wu publish this morning tho proceed
ings of n meeting of colored pooplo, hold
Monday night of last week, and of tin ad
journed meeting held Inst Friday night,
to express Indignation nt tho conduct of
Schoolmaster Tolford, who lately brutally
flogged a coloicd girl with a "rawhide."
Tho Indignntlon of the colored pooplo Is
Justified by the facts in the case, and tho
school directors should at onco dismiss
Tolford from his position. If corporal
punishment is not tauco for the white
goose, why should it be administered as
sauco to tho black gandor? Tho colored
folks of tho city should agitato until the
school-girl flogger tho oxplrt welldcr ol
tho rawhide the brutal Tolford is tent
up tho spout of dismissal.
ItKl'OIlT,
A mass meeting of tho citizens of Cairo,

pounced upon her with a rawhldo.
Remarks wero made by tho Rov. W

TERRIBLEAFFIIAY.
MUr.DER ANT LYNCH LAW TWO MEN
KILLED, Oi.E HUNO AND ANOTHER
WOUNDED A DESPERATE AVI'IIAY,
One of the most terriblo ullrnys that
ever occurm! In West Tennessee took
placo at Union city, during Monday night.
Tho circumstances as detailed to us
nre about these:
On tho evening In question, (.Monday)
tho watchman nt tho depot nt Union city
saw n man by tho namo of Tolly, trying
to get into a freight car standing on the
track at that city. The watchman nsked
Tolly whnt ho wantod and wns answered
that It was "nonoofhls d n business."
Tho watchman endeavored to drlvo him
away, but Tolly drow a revolver and flrcd
at him, tho ball taking effect In the
shouldor. Tho roport ; of tho pistol
attracted tho attention of a pollcoman,
uamcd Kline, who At once como to the as
sistance of tho watchman. As soon as
Tolly snwKIIno, ho commonccd shooting
ut him, tho first shot taking ef
fect In big left breast near the
heart. Kllno turned nnd walked
hack to tho hotel, nnd before ht could fin
ish telling those In tho house of tho affair,
sank on tho floor nnd died. A crowd
gathered and Tally was taken In charge,
and placed In one of tho rooms of tho ho
tel
Detective Pinkortnn, who jm.icil through
Cairo on Monday with ono of tho Union
City express robbers, tho man Levi Far
rington, nau just a low minutes beforo ar
rived in that town, and with his prisonor
was stopping nt tho hotol. Tolly was put
In the same room with Farrlngton, The
nows of tho shooting of Kllno and th
watchman spread through tho city, and
created great excitement. A mob gathered
and declared their intention to put Tolly
beyound tho powor of cvor doing any
moro mischief In this world. Thoy went
to tho hotel s.nd to tho room where the
two men woro confined. Farrington, who
was lying ontho bed, heavily ironed with
handcuffs and shncklcs, was mistaken for
Tolloy. Ho wns set upon nnd shot to
death in his bed, while Tolly, up to this
time had not been touched. When it was
found out by tho mob that they had killed
tho wrong man, thooxcitomontgrow moro
Inter.so and tho wholo town seomod to bo
frenzied. It was determined that Tolly
houId pay the penalty, nnd a rush
was maao lor tho room In which ho was
confined. Ho wus taken from tho hotel
and a short distance from town, '.whoro ho
was hung to the limb of a trco.
Thus ended one of tho most terriblo trag-
odys it has cvor been our lot to record,
Tho abovo uro tho details of tho fearful
affray as told to us by n gontlcman who
saw and conversed, yesterday, with an
eye-witness of tho wholo transaction.
THE GILBERT TROUPE.
Although lust night was ono of tho most,
if not the most disagreeable night, of tho
winter season the wind was high, snow
fell and it was bitter cold tho Athcn
cum wns well filled. "Streets of
New York" was the play, and w
believo wo speak tho sentiment of cv
orv oha rtr.i.Arit wliAn wm u.ort tli
it is ono of tho best dramas ever put upo
the stago m tills citv. Mr. Simeoo Leo
rendered his part to perfection, whilo Mrs
Fox, Katio Gilbert nnd Mrs. Jcnnio Gray
son, nnd Messrs. Grayson, Fox, Jns. Gil
bert, Anderson, nnd tho ontiro troupo did
their parts in n manner to merit tho prnis
of everybody.
