KililencRi of Decline.
Tho Dally Paducah 'Herald' has been
suspended, tho proprietor allcdglug bis
falluro to realize promised support, as
tbo cnuso of the sunpouslon.
In this suspension the city of Paducah
will bolhogroater HUlTetor., If the town
ib unequal to tho support an economically
conducted daily newspaper, like tho
'Herald' what it it equal to? Surely,
the outside world will not look to such a
town for prosperous, liberal merchants,
full hotels, busy mechanics and laborers!
The town that permits its papers to fail
for want of patron age, is not considered
by the public as the home of thrift or en
terprise, and tbo man of capital, seeking
favorable chances for Investments, will
give such a place the go by without in
quiry. Ho will, as men usually do, form
his estimate by what he sees and hears,
and If ho be a man whose mouey and
common sense render him a desirable
cltleen, he will steer clear of all towns,
claiming ten thousand population, that
can permit their dally papers to die for
want of patronage."
The 'Herald' has labored faithfully for
Paducah and Its enterprises, and now
behold Jta recompense! In Its dally
shape it dies because its Income is not
equal to its support. The citizens of Padu
can may treat this failure lightly, but,
ho faros tho effect upon tho public mind
is concerned, it would have been Infini
tely better had ono half of her wealth
been sw.cpt away by a conflagration.
The 'Herald' will hereafter appear as
a trl-weekly, in which shape it may or
may not be supported. Tho evidenced
of decline in the town, Hliown by the dls.
continuance of the daily 'Herald' may
continue until even the trl-weekly 'Her
aid' will die of the name dlneano that
killed the daily.

There Is an organization among the
boys of Memphis known s the Macker

young Ecampe cannot be found in tho
United States. Their depredations are
not confined to Memphis, but members
of tho brlgado ''do1' nearly all the river

Yesterday morning a one-legged man
orrlved per tho Great Republic. The
satno boat.brought a ''mackerel" In the
iu tlio person of n youth, thirteen yean
of age, named Henry Carlcton, The
cripple bought 510 worth of clothing at
Ike Walder's, and depntlting them In a
satchel, asked permission to leave them
In the store until the arrival of an up-river
boat. About an hour afterwards the
"mackerel.!' dropped in and asked for
tho valine, remarking thtf th'o cripple
had found n boarding house, and sent
him for the satchel. Thestory was plau
sible, ami tho "mackerel" made offwith
tho good. A short tlmo afterwards tho
cripple dropped In and asked for his
clothing, when tho "mackerol's vllllany
was made apparent. Joo Arnold was In
formed of tho transaction, and soon
found the youth at the depot. To au
Inquiry as to what ho hadjdono with the
clothing, ho Insisted that he had sold
them to a negro, whojhad left In a klfl.
But Joo continued his inquiries and fi
nally got on tho right track. Tho yonng
scoundrel had sold them at a Junk shop,
on Eighth Btreot. Tho caso was heard
bofore 'Squlro Bross this morning, and
the "mackerel" committed to jail, In de
fault of $150 ball, to await the, action of
tho grand Jury..

The attention of our pollen courtryes
terday was monopolized by litigating
females. First came Bertha Castle.
Bridget Farrell owed her a $10 board bill,
and. determined to make it, she attach
ed Bridget's trunk. Big Sal championed
Bridget's cause, and when she discover
ed that Bertha had a euro thing for her
$10, she was clearly of tho opinion that
thoio was a call for the exercise of a llt
tin mu sclo. Bridget must whip Bertha,
and she, tho hefty Sally, would pay tho
fine. But Bridget thought of a trick
worth two of that. Bertha bad sold alo
without license. She made oath to that
fact, and the 'Squire required of Bertha
tho $10 sho had made out of Bridget, aud
somo thing over live dollars besides tbat,
as official perquisites. This mollified Big
Sal for the moment; butthlnklng Itprob-
ablo that occaslou would soon require
the whipping of Ilerthu, sho asked the
'Squire what would be tho charge if
Bridget should take ii into her head to
administer the flogging. The 'Squire In
formed her that If the threshing was a
moderate one It would cost $5; a real,
face-scratching, drapery -tearing, hair
Bimtchiug one would cost $10. At the

and honesty she was no hotter than she
ought to be, and Sarah thinking that
ho better than she ought to be,
caused the 'arrest of Martha. Arnold
escorted the sable Martha to Bross' office
this morning, where she learned that it

It is said that a McLean county farmer,
named Joseph Long, has a thousand
acres of corn growing, tho stalks of
which will average fourteen foet In
height. This Is a very fair crop of corn ;
but, in Mississippi county, opposite Cairo,
such a growth would bo recarded as
"stunted." At the Chicago national fair,
held iu i860, a cornstock from that coun
ty measuring nineteen feet, four Inches,
was placed on exhibition, by a gentle
man who declared that the average bight
of the entire crop of whloh it was a sam
