A HIGHWAY ROUBER FINDS A
Sometimo ago a very old Frenchman,
who was unublo to spoak English, put up
at tho Central House, kept by Mrs. Gaff
ncy. That night ho was robbed ol SCO by
Lizzie- Norman, colored, who had hired
thoro In tlio capacity of chatnbormald.
Tho day after sho gavo the monoy to hor
man, Tom Harris, colored, a Paducah
rough and thlof. Ho doposltod most of
tho money with a whlto man who keeps a
negro den and shipped on tho stoamer
Howard. In tho mcantlmo Llzzio was
committed to tho jail to await her trial at
tho next term of tho circuit court. Harris
returned to tho city last week. On Sun
day morning Ofllcor Arnold spotted him.
Being awaro of Tom s doipcrato character,
Arnold procured tho services of John Cain
to help mako tho arrest. Thoy caino upon
Tom at tho corner of Third street and
Commercial aveniie. Arnold caught him
by the arm nnd ho was told ho was under
arrest. Suddenly tho negro mudo a lungo
backward leaving a portion of his shirt in
tho officer's hands, and mado 2:40 thno to
wards Bird's Point. When ho reached
tho Mississippi ho ran upit about ono mllo
and then jumped into tho water, making
for the Missouri shoro. Ho was told by
Mr. Foster, of Huo, Loomls & Co., to
ccmo back and deliver himself up, Hur-
ris unsworcd with an oath, "ho'd bo d d
if ho would." Swimming n fow yards far
ther ho sunk nnd rose thrco times, And
thon sunk to the bottom. This ended tho
chase, and was tho last of earth to Tom
Harris. Harris has tlio reputation ot a
highway robber at St. Louis and Vlcks-burg.
COLORED THIEF SHOT.
During tho past fow months tho store
room of tho St. Charles hotel has been fre
quently robbed by unknown thieves. Mr.
Rexford, ascertaining this fact, came to
tho determination to catch the thieves in
the act, and employed constablo John
Cain to sleep in the storo room and watch
tho goods. On Saturday night Henry
lohnson, a colored man, and a confeder
ate, entered the room and loaded
themselves with sugar, wine, &c,
and wore In tho net of leav-
ng with their booty, when Cain
opened n dark lantern on them, and or
dered them to halt and surrender. They
refused, and attempted to escape. While
pursuing them Cain shot at them, nnd
three balls toottoffect in Johnson's person ;
his wounds, it is believed, will bo fatal,
but he was alivo last night. Johnson is a
prominent member of the colored Grant
and Wilson club of this city, and is ono
of tho men who advocated the policy of
hanging or Bhootlng Itov. Mr. Shores for
being a Greeloyman.

CONDITION OF THE ItlVERs.
Tho fall in tho Ohio during the past 21
hours has beon very little. The recent
rlso in tho Ohio nbovu hero will probably
swell tho rlvur at this point a fow Inches.
Pilots report .even feet on French Is
land. Cumberland rivor remains very low.
Reports from Pittsburg, Cincinnati und
Louisvlllu iay that thu river is falling
The' Mississippi remains ubout tho same.
There is not inoro than seven feet from
hero to St. Louis, and Grconflold't is said
to glvo boats. more troubl'j than any other
bar. There wero u couplo of boats
aground there yesterduy.
11U8INE9S AND WEATHER.
Business on and about tho landing" was
very good considering yesterday was Mon
day, which us n general thing is tho dull
During the forenoon tho beat was a-ful,
and old Sol had no mercy. It became
cloudy in tho afternoon, nnd the iiliuos
phcro was a few degrees cooler.
The Nashville was aground at Caioy
villo twcnty-Uvo hours. Sho brought 11
fair trip. Thu Capital City liad tho Mem

did trip of freight and peoplo when she

and u number of people. Thu J.S. Mc

Tho Hello Vernon brought down the
new bargo recently built for tho Mist. V.
T. Co. It is a mammoth barge and will
carry fully sixteen hundred tons.
Tho Eddyvlllo arrived with n big re
shipping trip. Sho reports tho Shannon
with a barge hard aground at Casyville.
Four and a half feet there. Sho only
grounded ono hour on her way out, and
her pilots deservo pralso for tho piece of
work. Sho was drawing all the water
there was in thu chunnel.
Tho fight between tho Davidson lino
aud tho McLnno lino wnxeth hot and hot
ter, and some body is going to get hurt.
Tho rate huvo been put down so low that
neither can muko any money, and it
stems to bo their only objoc. to forco ono
another to tho wall. It is 11 pity thoro Is
not room enough on tho grand Mississippi
rivor for two lines of steamers to ply their
trado without interfering witli each other.
Tho company which win? the day will
hereafter ho nothing moro than a grand
monopoly, and passengers and shippers
will bavo to pay rate4 Unit will sopn

it sustains during thu present fight.
Tho suagboat Alitor! is still working

So much has been said, In tho lnt fuw

wo for onu would liku to seo it decided,
and thu only way to do it Is to havn a fair
