The man who persists in telling un
truths, no matter what his motive may be,
is not worthy the respect of honest
men; but what is to be done
with him who persistently makes a family
newspaper tho instrument for disseminating
glaring misrepresentations and unjust
abuse ' His conduct is excusable only upon
the ground that ho is a misguided sim
pleton, but upon no other.
As it has begun to rain now, it is feared
by some that it will continue. If it does
continue raining it will injure the corn that
is in the shock, as some of the farmers arc
complaining that tho corn, which is cut up,
has already begun to rot. It would be bad
for the farmers to lose tlieir crops now, after
feeling so jubilant over tho fine crop that
was raised. However, it is not yet prob
able that anything serious will come of it.
David Davis was formally nominated
for president pro tern, of the senate at a ro

he would accept tho position, Mr. Davis
replied that they must bo guided by their
knowledge of his character. The issuo is
likely to be sprung any day, and may lead
to debate and filibustcrinst.

At 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon the
United States snagboat, General Bernard, a
well appointed and speedy craft, left St.
Louis for the south, having aboard a dis
tinguished party, comprising members of
the Mississippi River Commission, ap
pointed by the government, which lias its
permanent headquarters in St. Louis. The
gentlemen go for an official inspection of
the river between St. Louis and tho mouth
of Red river. They will bo absent about
three weeks. The party is composed of
Gen. Gilmore, Gen. C. B. Comstock, Maj.
Sutter and Lieut. S. S. Leech, of tho United
States Engineering Corps; Maj. Ilarrod,
civil engineer; Prof. Henry Mitchell, of tho
United States Coast Survey, and Mr. Taylor,
of Indiana, who succeeds Senator Harrison,
of Indiana, as a member of the commission.
It was originally intended to depart on the
14th inst., and Capt. Ends intended accom
panying tho commission, but tho early
Ktart, and tho enormous amount of private
business ho has on hand prevented him
from carrying out the idea. As appeared
in Tue Bulletin's river column yesterday,
the Bernard arrived at and departed from
this port Thursday.

Yesterday afternoon, Captain Willard
Glazier and Mr. E. C. Paine arrived at this
port in a rushton codar canoe, fourteen feet
in length, being on their way from the
source of the Mississippi river to New Or
leans. They started at a small lake, about
three-quarters of a mile above Lake Itaska,
which is commonly believed to be tho
source of the river. They claim to bo
the discoverers of tho lake
from which they started, and
hold that it is the proper source of the
Mississippi. They have called this new lake
"Glazier lake," after its discoverer, the cap
tain aforesaid. For fourteen days after
they left lake Glazier they saw no human
face or form and it wia seventeen days be
fore they met with any white people. They
have travelled for eighteen hundred miles
in their littlo bark, stopping at tho princi
pal cities along the river, where tho cap
tain delivered interesting lectures. Mr.
Paine is a young man, a newspaper writer
for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and accom
panies Captain Glazier in the interest of
that journal. They will continue on their
way to tho Gulf of Mexico to-day,
starting from wharf-boat No. 2 at nine
o'clock this forenoon.
A terrible tragedy which resulted in
the death of Wm. Edmunds was enacted at
the Enders farm, two miles back from tho
Illinois shore, Wednesday afternoon. Pete
Burgess, another negro, had been accused
by Edwards of poisoning a cow which he
bad to die recently, and on the two meet
ing yesterday a quarrel resulted from tho
accusation. The two men were going the
same way, and when they reached the End
ers farm, on which the murderer lives, ho
told Edwards to go, or he would kill him.
Burgess then went into the house, procur
ed a gun and, returning to tho road, called
Edwards. Upon the latter turning around
Burgess fired at him, the load of buckshot
striking him in the breast and killing him
instantly. After committing the deed,
Burgess returned his gun to tho house and
started through the woods, ho said, to give
himself up. Ho was met by Mr. Wiggius,
of this city, who was out hunting and to tho
latter's inquiry if there was any game about,
he replied yes, plenty of it; I just killed a
damned nigger down here. Burgess is
said to be a desperate sort of negro while
his victim, who is an old man, is very in
offensive. Both have families. Wo didn't
hear last night it Burgess had given hinmclf
up or not. The murder was a cowardly
one and tho (lend who commit ted it should
meet a jut and speedy punishment. Pa
The decision of the appellate court of
Illinois, declaring the ordinance of tho city
of Cairo, which requires merchants to pay
a yearly license of ten dollars for the
privilogo of doing business, to bo illegal
and tho license uncolleclable, does not se
riously affect tho revenue of tho city. Tlio
ordinance affected only merchants in strict
est senso of tho word, which does not in
clude saloonkeepers, and of theso about
one hundred and fifty paid the
required license, so that the city's revenue
from merchants license was about fifteen
hundred dollars, which decreased every
year because, one by one, tho merchants re
fused to pay, and tho abolishment of
which now will hardly be felt by the city
government. One of the reasons why the
city was debarred from collecting this li
cense was probably that merchants wero
supposed to have been previously taxed for
tho stock they carried; though, perhaps,
tho chiof ground was that the city charter
did not authorize tho collection of tholi
censo. Now that merchants can do busi
ness without paying this license, thouo who
begin business on tho socond of May, or
after tho assessor has mado his rounds and
continue it until tho latter part of April,
next year, or just before tho assessor comes
erouud ugain, can . do business without
contributing any thing whatever
to tho revenuo of tho community
in which ho lives. This ia a hole
that should bo closed in some way. There

these yearlings can bo captured and mado

denies emphatically that ho used tlio lan
guago attributed to him by the evening
paper, to-wit: that "Tub Bulletin has
been wrong in every position it has taken
in this controversy." What he did say in
conversation with the editor of tho evening
paper was that "ip Tub Bulletin (we
quote the Dr's own language) believed that
tho Illinois Central railroad company was
legally bound to caro tor tho man Wood
gate, then it, The Bulletin,
was, in his opinion, mistaken."
His "dissent (wo quoto tho Dr's own lan
guage) from tho statements of The Bulle
tin was conflnod to that point." Tho even
ing paper knows that Tub Bulletin al
ways admitted that tho railroad company's
responsibility in tho Woodgato caso was,
just as tho city's wos. not legal, but moral;
therefore, Dr. Wood is entirely in accora
with Tub Bulletin in all that it has said
in thiB controversy. The evening paper has
again misrepresented tho truth.
