An Italian was arrcstsd yesterday by
Chief of Polico Myors on suspicion of be
ing tho nssassln of old man Bccbo. On
tho day of tho murderous . assault, tho
Italian with a little boy came with u wag
on as far as Lake crook bridge, twolvo
miles from Cairo, on tho Unity road. Tho
party In chargo of tho wagon stopped
near tho bridge for dinner, and tho Ital
ian and hoy passed on. In ten intnutos
aflor, Beebo passed tho bridge and follow
ed after tho Italian. In about an hour af
ter the party in chargo of tho wagon
started forward aftor tho Italian and
found Boebe on tho roadsido. about ono
inllo from the Mississippi on what is call-
ad tho Potta road. Suspicion immediate
ly fell on the Italian, and on this Informa
tion ho was arrested. Tht chief searched
him 'but did not find any property
on his person ' that could be
identified as that stolon from Boabe. He
then took his, prlsonor into tho presence of
the wounded man who stated that tho
Italian was not, the man who had assaultod
him that a younger man had struck

Wo wish to have him educated, and bo-

Diaii Slit : 1 hnvo never beforo thought
my affairs of enough Importance to bo
brought to tho public attention, and would
not now Intrude any of my bungling sen
tences Into your columns if I woro not
fully satisfied that my self-respoct de
mands that I should denounce a certain
malicious falsehood, which has been
aimed nt my character and is now in cir
culation In this community, in a manner
as publio as it has beon asserted.
Somo cowardly dog, too cowardly to bo
bold in falsohood and mean enough to cut
his trustor's throat or pluck the crutch
from tho old limping siro and with it beat
out his brains, in ordor to injure mo in my
business and in tbo estimation of my
friends has been circulating tho report
that I was recently cowhidod by two
womon. This roport has no foundation in
fact. It is a hugo falsehood a lio from
turrot to foundation stono, and its archi
tect, lost in tho multiplicity of liars who
havo been repoatlng it with knowing bend
shakos, is a master in his profession, and
may boast, when he wishes to bo cundld,
Hint his falsity is only cquallod by his
cowardice, in comparison with which
ovon tho cowardico of blustering Falstuff
would becomo tho horalsm of Hector.
My acquaintances will not bclievo this
roport, I know, but oven a fnliohood when
it is ropcatcd frequently, without contra
diction, nssutnes tho features of truth; nnd
this falsehood, unknown to mo, has passed
through many mouths und boon repeated
by both men nnd womon. Tbo hoad of
tho malo constructor of this lie is yet on
his shoulders, a fact that may be explainod
when It is known that ho is unknown to
mo. Tho women who havo so llttlo re
spect for their tongues as to pormit thorn
to rotail a lie so shallow, emphasizing it
with tho lie of thoir own, that they "know
