HUBOLARf. Tho IndcfallgableVChlef
of police, Mjrers, while on his rounds'Sat
urday morning, at 4 o'clock, met a man on
Tenth street carrying packages that war
ranted a slight suspicion that nefarcotis
practices had been indulged In during un
seasonable hours. A ihort parley ensued
between Myers and the matt of package.
Thorultconfirined thechlof s suspicion;,
for no sooner did he attempt an exauiin-'
ation of tho preciou. burden than its tem
porary owner left suddenly, and at a gait
and rate tbat worrantod swift pursuit on
the part of Jfyers. Johnson, for tbat was
his name, ran through Walter's lumber
yard, making devious and Intricate ways
fur his relentless pursuer, and finally went
into a trap, under tho sidewalk of Bailor
Harrell's store, whore, unfortunately for
Johnson, a partition stood, and tvhero
Mycr came upon him, and whence he took
him to light and recognition. He proved
to be a man named Fred Johnson, and It
soon came to view that ti articles be had
in his possession boxes o cigars, a lot of
tobacco, and two bottled of .-u.'sky he bad
stolen from tho houso of PuU!n Smith, on
Ohio Levee whose premises he burgla
rioiulyentered, and whoso till ho broke
open with evil intent, but found mpty.
Chief Meyer placed him in prison, and yes
terday morning he was examined before
Judge Bros and ordered to tho county
JaUJinUfkuUuf $MO bonda to,anwor at
the next term of the Circuit CourV toMhe
chargeof burglary. Myornrrertod John
son some days ago on the charge of steal
ing iron. He was tried for vagrancy, finedi
andbolng unable to liquidate, pUced in
jail, and was released as late' as'Thursday
night. Evidently a bad man that John
son. Don't forget tho Turner picnic to-day.

John Singleton, in August, 1870, mur
dered his little step-daughter, aged three
years, In. Lyon county, Kentucky. After
committing the foul deed be secreted
the body of his victim in a lence corner, on
the premises his prosonce cursed,, where it
was found; plainly showing; evidences' of
brutal violence. It bets' the appesttaace
of having been terribly beaten, so much J
so tbat death proved an angel of .moroy to
the frail sufleror, whom, it seems, was an
invalid at tho time of her death. The cir
cuit court of Lyon county found John
Singleton guilty of the murder of Clom
ontine Singleton, and beforo tho officers of
tho luw could secure his body ho had de
serted his home, which should have ap
peared rombro and dark to him, and went
away to othor parts. Tho Governor of
the State of Kontucky offered a reward of
$500 for his apprehension and delivery to
tho jailer of Lyon county. Notwith
standing tho untiring and faithful search
mado for Singleton, stimulated by tbo re
ward, ho evaded tho mon of law until ho
concluded himself entirely safe, when, In
an evil hour for him, and a gain to justice,
ho returned to Kentucky, and settled near
Cairo. F. M. Hildreth und B. F. Cochrah,
of Kentucky, during this month, by some
strange chanco found cluu to the trail tlmt
finally led to his whorenbouts. They trav
ersed tho couhtry between Lyon county
and Cairo, and ciunoupon himon tho Ken
tucky sido opposite this city, pursuing tbo
avocation of a farmer; upprohended him,
placed him aboard tho steamer Lumsdeu
and took him up the river, and on tho 10th
Inst, delivered him to A'. J. Rots, Jailer of
Lyon county thus earning, by their
shrewdness and bravery, a handsome- re
ward, and bringing to justice a fiend who
boat unto death nn innocent and defente
less child, an Invalid, one to whom his
heart should have warmed, and upon whom
he should have bestowod sympathy and
filial caresses.
