Tub Wkstktin HivkrS.?A curious)
state of things exists just below Illinois.?
Precisely opposite the mouth of the Mis- j
Bouri, tlic river has been running with such
force against the bank as to cut deeply into ,
it, and broak much of it away, for sonic ,
years past, causing the apprehension that ;
at some ti 1110 or other, a new channel would
bo formed for the Mississippi, which would
consequently bo diverted from its present
channel. The event has occurred, to a certain
extent; and the water will doubtless '
fiud a passage again to the Mississippi, and
cut a deep and permanent channel below !
Alton.
The upper Mississippi was swelling nil

distracted with fear, and tho bottoms

rivers wero in the same condition.
On Saturday, one hundred and fifty head |
of cattlc were drowned in the bottom, a :
Hhort distance above the mouth of the 1 Hi- |

Immense quantities of lumber, fire-wood,
barrels of whiskey, coal, tar, &c., passed
down with the water yesterday, and hundroclu
of men were cngsj?c(' in resetting the
floating material. Several rafts came floating
down the river.
St. Lours, June 14.?Despatches from

("5ov. MeWillio, of .Mississippi, in charged
by tlio Yicksburg Southron with having
pardoned out of the penitentiary a man |
named Dyson, who bun nnsapfiiintcd anoth- '
or man named Nelms, for which lie was !
simply sentenced to the prison for fifteen I
years. That paper says of the criminal: i
ziir % i ? . * *
no wayiaiu ins victim, with whom lit? i
had a deadly fucd ; brought him down nt
the first shot, and then, emerging from his |
liitling place, tauuted his dying victim with j
words of insult and reproach, and finally I
concluded by placing the muzzle of his gun
to i.ho body of Ncims and tiring the second |
time. This shot produced instant death, !
and so close was tho gun to the victim that 1
the flesh of the murdered man was burnt '
by the explosion. Having completed tho |
work of slaughter, he deliberately mounted ;
his horse and rode to the home of Nelms, |
called his wife out, and informing her that j
he had murdered her husband, directed her ,
where to find his mangled corpse.
" Dyson is a blood-stained, blood-thirsty :
incarnate fiend, lie is not a man, but a
ferocious tiger ; and Gov. McWillio has no
more right to turn such n beast loose upon
the community than ho has to open the
cages of a whole caravan of tigers. His
antecedents arc well known too, and they
should have forbidden all hope of Execxi- !
tive clemency. The murder of Nelms was ,
not his first taste of blood, lie, had pre- 1
viously, in a most base and cowardly man- i
nor, murdered a lawyer named Moss, of i
Do Soto county, by shooting him in the i
back as Moss rode from him. lie had :
murdered three of his own negroes, and
one of them in a manner so horribly appall- !
ing, as to cause the death of his own wife.
This ease occurcd at bis own table and the
victim of his fiendish rage was a woman.?
Taking offence nt something tho woman did
or omitted to do, while waiting at the table,
he rose, drew a Bowie knife, and with a
single blow ripped her open. I lis wife
swooned, and * en she awoke to conscious
1_ 1 1 it. ' * ' '
ncss, no iiuu uic negro s ncariout, ana witn

She swooned again, and tho result of lior
horror and fright brought on convulsions,
from tlio clfccts of which she soon died.
