The Chimixai, Rkcouii. Curley Mc-
Cuen, a well-known Memphis detective,
was in the city yesterday. He came
down from St. Louis with one Alex.
Estls, colored, who, in company with
one Mitch Conway, also colored, robbed
a jewelry store lu Memphis In January
last. Conway was arrested here a few
days ago by Deputy Sherlfl Shechati, nud
was turned over to McCucn, who left last
evening with his prisoners for Memphis.
John F. Wyche, n Kentucky school
teacher, arrived in Cairo on Thursday
morning, and in the course of ids ram
bles about the city fell In with Martin
Altham and Jack McGowen. Tho two
latter are confidence men, aud soon beat
Wyche out of a small sum of money on
the played-out lock trick. Sherlfl Irvin
and Deputy Shcehan, hearing of the swin
dle, got a description of tho sharpers and
soon after arretted them. Wyche went
home ft poorer, but It i to be hoped,
a wiser man.
Slicriir Irvin left lor Jollet by the af-
tcruoou train on tho Illinois Central rail
road yesterday, taking all the prisoners
convicted at the late term of thu circuit
court. They were ten iu number, four
black nud six white. Rig Jep Craln and
Dr. Hasu.iU were chained together; nnd
Uluck Hill Craln nud John Sullivan made
another pair. Dr. Ilacall seemed to bu
In good spirits, nnd under other clreuin-
Unices one would have supposed he was
going off on a visit.
Newton Went, who was nrrestsd a
few-days ngo in St. Louis by Shertll Ir
win on n charge ol stealing a gold chain
aud locket, nud $9 lu money from Sarah
Straus, was before Judge Ilross yester
day for a hearing. That est was
guilty of the theft there can scarcely be a
doubt ; but when the woman from who
he stole the goods was put on the stand,
it was evident that she did not want to
swear against htm, and according
to her testimony thu chain wus
not worth anything, nnd she
couldn't swear that West stole the
SO, of course, if the chilli wasn't worth
anything and she could not tell who took
the money, thero wns no caso against
West, and ho was discharged. After West
was discharged Mrs. Straus claimed her
chain, but Deputy Shcrlfl'Sheehan would
not glvo it up, nud demanded the cost of
going to St. Louis after West, telegraph
fees, etc., to the amount ot twenty dol
lars. Shu did not have the money, but
the olllcer told her he would keep the
chain till shu could raise it, and put it In
his pocket. Served her right.
"A Nick Mkss." From the followlnir
our people can judge of tho prospect ot
an appropriation being obtained from
congress to improve navigation and pro
tect the banks of tho Mississippi from
erosion. Tho first extract is from a let
ter from Washington to tho Chicago
Tribune. If It Is a correct stutciveut of
the engineer's report, then the report
is calculated to do this city more
injury than any other influence ever set
lu motion not excepting thu present
city government. Does anybody Relieve
that congress will appropriate u single
cent with such a report bel'oro It ? Wo
shall not be astonished to see a resolu
tion introduced lu tho Interest of St.
Louis, for the construction of n ship canal
from tho Mlsslsslnnl to the Ohio along
that U.500 feet in fact we shall not bu
astonished at anything our enemies cau
(io. nut read tuts extract :
"Tho secretary of war has sent to thu
houso a report from thu engineer corps
upon thu threatened destruction of Cairo,
111., from the washing nway ol tho
river banks. Tho report says 'that tho
ranld erosion ot tho Illinois shoro has
caused great alarm to the citizens of
uairo, wno tear Hint tue Mississippi may
continue to work Its way to tho banks
nf tlm Dlilit. nml leave the cltv nil
Island, both sides ot which will be
exposed to the action of tho current. Tho
distance between tho tvyo rivers In 18tU
was 4, MS. loot, tiio nrcsciit a (stance is
3.600 feet. An Immediate nDnronrlatlon
ol $11)5,000 Is asked to prevent the caving
of the banks, of which $200,000 is wauled
lor ibis year, tiio csumaieii total cost
of tills Improvement Is $1,000,000."
The abovo was In the Tribune ol Wed
nesday. Now read the following edito
rial from thu Tribune of yeMerdny, aud
tell us what effect It Is calculated to pro
duce on our city. Just such falsehoods,
misrepresentations and sneers ns these,
prompted, we believe, by designing men,
have been the bane of our city for years.
Head this:
"The City ol Cairo, which Is prob
ably .nsseed on a valuation of
ess than $1,000,000, modestly asks
a government bounty of $,000.
000 to protect it from the
danger It apprehends of becoming nn
Island ! The Inference from the character
or the demand is that, il the United
Stales refine to come to the rescue, Cairo
will quietly await its ultimate destruc
tion without doing any thing to save Itself .
It will occur to a good many persons
that nelt vol no mure enterprise, enercv
or Internal resources than this would
indicate, Is scarcely worth $1,000,000,
To others It will occur that Hie trovern.
incut might about ns well undertake to
rebuild the city ol uniro on n new site
The nbovc Is from thu Cairo .S'n of last
evening. The remarks ol our neighbor
arc, to say thu least, ill advled and In
bad tastcjiHt nt this time; and calculated
to do the city even more Injury In her ef
forts to secure nn appropriation for the
Improvement of the Mississippi hi this
locality, thau both the dispatch nnd ed
itorial quoted from the Chicago Tribune.
Wo could expect nothing else
from tho Tribune; but wo people
of Cnlro, nnd csiHiclally the newspapers,
should be the last hi the world to glvu
utterance, cither by word or deed, to
anything that could possibly lead to n mis
construction concerning this matter. We
are sure our neighbor's intentions In this
Instance were good, but ho seems to have
got on the blind side of the subject and
unlntcntlally throws cold water on the
whole project.
Since reading tiic Sun we have gone
to some trouble to a-ccrtaln just what
the reports referred to lu the article
nbovc quoted contain, nnd that our
readers may understand tho subject as It
is, and to correct nny wrong impression
that may have been created abroad by
reason of these publications, we give
the result of what wo have been able to
learn :
General Simpson, who m charge ot
the Mississippi river Improvements be
tween the mouth of the Illinois river and
the mouth of thu Ohio river, a distance
of nearly, or perhaps over, three hun
dred miles, estimates the total cost of
the proposed permanent Improvment iu
his district, nt $4,000,000. Rut congress
is not asked, neither is it dc-
Mreu mat u suouid appro
priate this sum for present
use. The sum asked for this year for
this general Improvement Is $1,000'-
000. Of the $1,000,000 it is proposed to
expend $495,000 iu the improvement of
the river between Dickey's Island and
the mouth of the Ohio river, but of this
$135,000 only $200,000 Is asked for this
year. This Is General Simpson's gener
al report ; hat In n special report made
by him he encourages aud recom
mends the appropriation of $300,000
for immediate use for the improve
ment of the river between Dickey's
Island nud the mouth of the Ohio. This
Is the whole matter. The Tribune docs
not state thu matter fairly. Omitting
the all Important fact that Gen. Simpson
lias a district of three hundred miles
under charge, It endeavors to create the
impression that the entire $1,000,000 is
to be expended at Cairo; and the Sun evi
dently believes that some one has act
ually madu such n report, and sees in it
nothing but defeat in obtaining the com
paratively small, sum which lias been .ap
plied tor.
