Yesterday morning a while man
named John Murphy was found dead in a
freight cat loaded with sacks of grain
and standing on the Illinois Central track
at the loot of Eighth street. Evidently his
death was caused by aulfocatinn, ss his
head was found pressed between the sacks
in a manner which seemed to necessarily
exclude the possibility of a free respira
tion. He whs taken out and recognized
by snnie ot his friends, who interested
themselves in his burial. He is a river
man, about forty-five years of sge; has been
a "cotton-jammer" and done general work
on steamboats between this point and New
Orleans. Ho is a citizen of New Jersey,
from whence he came out west, und where
lie has a wife and several children living.
Yesterday evening Mrs. Boshca, sister

She was leaning against the railing of tho
porch in the rear of her residence, on Wal

precipitating her to the- ground, a distance
of about twelve feet. She fell on her neck
and back and sustained what Doctor.' Dun
ning, the attending physician, pronounced
to lie serious injuries, she was
not iinconcious, recognizing every
body she saw, but complained of
ft pain in the neck and back, which, to judge
from her nervous clutching at the air and a
contracting of the muscles of her face, must
have been terrible. A number of persons
sat up with her last night, and it is to be
hoped that she is much improved to-day
This uioruing there appears in tho an
notincement column of The Bulletin tho
name of Mr. William E. flendricks as a
candidate for re-election to the office of
city attorney. He has filled the ollke for
one term to the best of his ability, no
doubt, and he asks the people to say at the
next city election w hether or not his efforts
have met their approval. He is a young
man of Cairo's own stock, has had a nuin
her of very important cases to manage dur
iug his first term ol office, in which he snow
ed himself to be thoroughly versed in law
ami to possess pnlgtnent and tact in no
small degree. If Mr. Hendricks is re elect
ed to the office he would not only fill it ns
well as any other man that is likely to pre
snt himself, but he would, by reason of
the tXierieiico gained in his first term be
able to do better than most anybody else

his ability to please any one who will give
him an opportunity to do so. His grand

On Sunday night, aUmt eleven o'clock,
a iM'ttutiful sight was enjoyed by all who
happened to he out on our streets. The
steamer City ol Greenville was slowly
moving up along the Ohio river bank fnuu
the iower wharf-boats to the Illinois Cen
tral wharf Isiat; she is furnished with two
electric lights one ol which, just in front
of her c ibin, was turned on anil the bril-
fiant rsys shot out into the inky sky and
over the house tops of the city like the tail
of a meteor, which had come with electric
speed from somewhere in the wcMcni
firmament and lodged in the Ohio river,
leaving its fiery path visible for a mile or
more. But we arc not now in a sentimental
uiood, and hence will conclude by sajing
t!fat the old craft took a lot of cfiairs
aboard while the mate cursed with the
volubility of a master in that art and then
left Cairo to get what comfort it could out
of its fifty or a hundred little old gas street
From the Paducah Enterprise of Sat
urday, we learn that a madman, named
John Humphreys, residing in Paducah, but
being kept in closesurveilancc iu his home,
escaped last Friday and made his way to
ward Lovclaccvillc. Arriving at the resi-
lenceof a Mrs. Samuel (Johlson, he seized
in axe, forced an entrance, and attempted to
kill Ikt. But in striking at her he reached
too far and the handle of the axe striking
tier head, it llew out of his hands; he
then seized a pitchfork and was
about to stab her while she was kneeling
before him when neighbors entered, one of
whom struck him on the head wi'.h a csne.
But this only tended to detract his atten
tion from his intended victim for a moment,
luting which she arose and dashed through
the door and up the road leading to Padu
cah. The madman pursued her with fork
in hand, but before reaching her he stum
bled over a log when he was captured by
his pursuers. He was taken to a place of
aloty, w here he will remain until provi
sions are made for transporting him to an
asylum. Mr. Gohlson was in a precarious
condition at last accounts.
A day or two ago a white man entered
ie establishment of one of our levee busi
ness men. He was npparantly without any
visible means of support and likewise al
most without any visible means of protec
tion ngaiust cold. His dress consisted ol a
coat ami iants, ragged and unclean, tied
ogether with strings and pinned around
his body with sticks of wood. He had a
pair of tolerably gwd brogan shoes on his
bare feet, which he offered ' the
said business man for a mere pittance;
but this individual was a young man
of tender heart, he saw that the poor wretch
before hint needed the shoes, that he bore
upon h's face the signs of the fiend, rum,
and he refused to make the purchase, of
fering, however, to go and purchase him a
loaf of bread il that wero wdiat was wanted.
This kind offer thn man declined and thus
negotiations cased between them. But
the half-naked toper did not leave the
premises, oe lingered around offering his
shoes to all who came near him and finally
an old man camu along, whose curly
locks had grown gray in the service of
the lord (h, tho poor wretch offered his
foot gear to him. "What do yon want lo'
dem?" asked th.) gray headed individual.
"I'll take twenty cents" was tho reply.
"No sah 1 gib you fifteen cents nahjdats all
dasewoff." (The shoes wero worth at
least seventy-five cents). Tho young man

who hud previously refused to purchase
the shoes because he knew that the money
woiila bo spent for whisky, here stepped
up and by signs and winks gave the would
be purchaser to understand that the
man was offering to sell the
shoes off his bare feet in order to get
moiicj for whiskey, anil that he should not
make the purchase. But this the man of
God (?i would not understand. "Use a po'
man; Use Ids' my house an' ebery thing I
had by de fiah and de lo'd knows I need
dc shoes," and he took fifteen cents of the
money he had collected from his white
Iriends to rebuild his house with and gave
it to the smiling white man, who handed
over the shoes and, with feverish glow in
Ins eye, clutched the money and went
away. Shortly after he was seen in a fit of
deliiiuni, prancing about on the side
walk and neatly falling off, which would
have been almost certain death; but tho
railing on the sidewalk prevented the
occurrence of this, what would have been
termed a fit s. qual to our story.
The Paducah News of Saturday tells
of a M in nie to swindle an innocent granger
out ol live dollars. The said fainier had
been to town with tobacco and tiavin" dis
posed of it he was about to Mart back home
when a man w ith a bundle approached
him, saying that he whs going the same
way he was and asking permission to ride.
I iim granger cotiHcnteil, hut the stranger
had some other little business to attend to
and Hsked permi-iou lo put his bundle
into one of the empty sacks on the wagon.
I'his was also allowed him and he depart
ed, Soon after another man came
to the wagon and demanded to sec
what was in that sack. The granger of
course had no objections, and the ack. be
ing operinl, was found to contain a horse
coilar, which this stranger claimed as his
property, saying that it had lieen stolen
from him, Hnd threatened to bring an action
igainst the granger for having stolen pro-
perty in bis possession, but finally offered
to compromise the matter for five dollars.
The granger didn't have the money, but
offered to go and get it. While out on this
errand he met a friend to whom be explain
ed his dilema. The friend suggested (hat
all was not right and tin- granger's suspi
cions were aroused. He returned to his
team where be found his accuser still wait
ing and denounced him as a swindler. This
individual suspected treachery and seizing
his collar made himself scarce. We relate
thisclrcunitanee us a warning to the gran
ger readers of Thk Bcm.ktin.
We learn.-d yesterday indirectly,
though from a reliable, source, that Mr.
Moses B. Il.iirell and family would prob
ably go to England and make it his home
for a while, at least. As is perhaps known
by his ninny Cairo friends, he is at present
and has been lor some time, connected
with a Mock yard's journal in Chicago, 111.,
where he has made for himself an enviable
position' as a writer in the estimation of
(he propnetors of the journal, who have
concluded to establish a similar paper in
London, England, and send Mr. Harrell
over there to edit and manage it. If the
rumor becomes verified, the Southern Illi
nois friends of Mr. Harrell will have reason
to congratulate him upon his good fortune
in having his ability and worth so recogniz
ed, and will only regret that he
will be so far away and that be is in
danger of dropping n portion ol his "han
dle" coming back as Mr. 'Arrell-if he
comes back at all. The enterprise spoken of
looses its apparent unn asoimbleni ss when
it is considered that American beet is con
sumed in large quantities in England and
that the British press is naturally opposed
to it, and seeks to prejudice the people of
England against it. The paper to bo es
tablished theie, of which Mr. Harrell is to
have charge, is to counteract this influence
of the Brittish press as much as possible by
educating the people over there in the
truth concerning American beef, and thus
increase the demand for that important ar
ticle of commerce. Success to the new
