One of the largest and most brilliant
meteors ever seen in this country passed
over Paducah about nino o'clock on Sun
day night. Iti light rivalled that of the.
sun. It seemed as large an the moon
and was in eight a considerable time be
fore it burst Into brilliant fragments.-
We wore strongly impressed with the
notion that this raotcor wa peculiarly a
Cairo affair. Is was seen by a number
of our citizens, and it explosion was
heard by everybody. Tho conclusion
was formed that It exploded In tho vicin
ity of Mound City, but tho donlzcns of
that locality nolthor seen tho meteor nor
heard tho report caused by Its explosion.
A second meteor passed over Paducah
Monday night, omitting J Jlght suffi
ciently bright to enable cltlzonB to rer l
newspaper print in tho streets.
Certain Individuals In Cairo are deter
mined to "bo there" when a certain

Mr. lJlubte' M'rsmn.
Mr. Mockler, wo aro Informed, has the
receipt of Mr. Beerwart, as City Trept-
urer, for Mr. Dinklo'a Jleenae. Wo nave
reason to believe this hi true j and, there
fore, without hesitation, without soliolta.
tlou, ruuko hasto to say that in what we
said about tho Diukle license wo did Mr.
Mockler Injustice. SVe do' uot wish to
oad him with anything he should not,
of right, carry. Asserting, however.
that we had every reason to believe tho
statement we made true, we will hero
publish facts In substantiation of this de
claration. John Hyland became Treas
urer on tho 13th of March, Patrlok
Mocklor Clerk on tho same tlay. We
obtained Mr. Dinkle's llceime. It was Is
sued by Mr Mockler. Wo found no re
cord of the money on tho books of the
Treasurer, elthor In Hylaud's or Beer
wart's timo. It to not there. Tho city
never received tho money. Wo inquired
of Mr. liyland: "Did you over glvo a re
ceipt for Dinkle's license'1'' Ho answered j
"1 never did; nnd have not been paid
thy money." . We Inquired further:
"Mljjlitnot thin money have huun paid
to ireSrwart?" Mr. Hyland ropliod; "The
book show tl ( If wnsiiot; and it could
not ! leei-, ! c m Mr Ji)K'f- ransf
r I -.,a
and saying bfs license was about out and
that he did not have scrip enough to pay
It Just then, oked If ho could not have
a little timo." To tW-J a policemen add
ed this fact: That he hod notified Mr.
Dlnkle that b's license Wi about to ex
pire, and hat Mr. DlnklfPdho "would
wait until Mr. Mockler came into office
as that gentleman had an uccount
w'ith h'm." These are tho grounds
upon which we based ,our state
ment. Could any person hare es
caped tho conclusion we" t i.ved at?
But now comes Mrr. Mocklor, with a re.
celpt from Mr. Beerwart, by Mr, Ken'h,
his deputy, given beforo Hyland bocam0
Trcpsurcr and before Mocklor becarao
Clerk. This ) n fearful mWiug of mat
ters. It Is, con fusion worse confounded.
We can make nothing out of it, except
that tho city has never received tho
mone It is a conundtum, a rlddlo.
We feci discouraged; but, somehow or
other, canlt glvo up. Tho solutko of the
mystery, of the confuIon in clly natlotfi,
wlUcomo up by wHftby corai beforo
tho expiration of the term of the present
administration. Mark that prediction!
I'ulnxkl County Itcini.
An agricultural society has ben organ
ized In Pulaski county, and twi thousand
dollars have been subscribed toward tho
expenso of fitting up ground, otc.
Tho Pulaski county court contemplate
the early improvement of the Meridian
road. Tills road follows tho meridian
line from Mound City to a po-!ut on the
Thebes and Caledonia road, about two
miles from Valley Forge. When put in
good order it will give Cairo as well as
Mound City, -easy communication with
all parts of 1'ulaskl county.
A eoldred Methodist brother was ex
horting his hearers in Mound City to
have faith -and fear nothing; not to bo
afraid If tho house above their hcads
should fall 'down on 'em; faith would
bring 'em nut all right. Tho confiding
divine had scarcely uttered theso words
beforo tho miserable old rookery in which
they were assembled came rattling about
their ears, suro enough. Tho colored di
vine gave a tremendous Jump and landed
on tho outside of tho house, with the ex
clamation: "Bless God for faith; but no
odds how much faith a man's got, it's ft
mighty good tiling to bo able to jump."
Tho building, which was a light frame,
fell to the ground, but tho audience es
caped entirely uninjured.
Pete Williams lost his hand three

A couplo of buggies from Cairo, each,
contnlntug ,c fnir i.nll ononud a inaLe
compnnlon, were cavorting about our
streets on Monday. All hands frequent"
ly halted for (Irjots and thus were not
long in getting decidedly intoxlcatedv
Tho final scono nero was a raco between
tho two females, each lu hex respective
buggy, their gallants being auioug the
spectators. The result was a collision
between the buggies, one of them being
overturned and having a wheel bro
ken. The Inmate was thrown violently
to tho ground, but apparently not mucn
injured.. How tho party returned to Cai
ro wo dlu not learn. Our city authorities
ought to liavo made about twenty dol
lars out of them, for the benefit of tho
Horse nnd Dray Loit.
Mr. Wm. Iionergan's horse, attached
to his dray, was driven to tho river this
morning, ,and In some unaccountable
manner got beyond its depth. The horse,
with body at right angles with tho shore,
passed under tho .water, and kept -down
by the weight of the dray, was drowned.
Tho negro driver .escaped.
Tho drowning of this animal is entire
ly unaccountable. ITJio river being high

.many yards out under tho water. Tho
only reasonable explanation is that tho
ihorso was driven Into tho water at right

Wo did not i-tnte that Mrs. Karnoy had
paid Mr. Mockler any money, or that
Mr. Mockler had Ifniied Ucouimj to her.
What we did say was, that the i&UrWa

license, and that Mr. Mockler issued
thatllcense about two months ago. Bo
this os itmay, there Is the Clerk's book,
and there is the repord, showing that
Mrs. Ke.v t1ey bps taken out license until
1870. More, the record of Mrs. Kear
ney's lost license shows, ps originally
wiltten, that It expired December, 1808.
Somo person hos marked out "Decem
ber" and the "P" and hos wiltten, In
peneU, above tho erased word: "Fcbru.
ary 20," and ha a changed .the "8" to A
"0," thus making the license run until
March, at which time, according to the
record, the license which Mrs. Karnoy
never paid for and never received, wps
Issued. What was tho object of the per
son who thus tampered with tho book of
tho Clerk? Tho officers who notify citi
zens that their licenses liavo expired ex
amine tho Clerk's book, and notify only
those who, according to thin hook, ore in
arrears. If th's exposure had not been
made, any person who had looked at tho
Clerk's book would havo at onco con
cluded that Mrs. Karney had a llcenso,
nnd tho city would not have received
from her, as it now will, tho amount of
a license running to Jauupty, 1870. From
this It will bo seen, that tho person who
mado tho record on the Clerk's book,
made it out of friendship for Mrs. ICpr-
noy, to savo her ninoly-flvo dollars,
which she owed to tho city for license.
Toputltrdalner. tho person who made
that record, In effect, attempted to take
