Cairk, 111., March 4. The Ohio river if
now over lift v milra wide tit this point.
It extends from the Cairo level, which
holds it banked up forty fret above the
lower water mark in Kentucky, till it
trikca the hills, there forming one solid
sheet of water except for the narrow
trips of rock-bound earth upon which
the Mobile ami Ohio and Illinois Central
railroads run south. A mile below hen
it joins the Mississippi, which in turn ex
tends into the Missouri, another fifty
inilcH mnkiiiK the combined width of the
two rivers about 300 miles. The current
is terrific and brings cjreut quantities ot
lienvy drift, making navigation icrilous.
The ferrv boat Three Slates made two
trips to tast Cairo yesterday and one
up the Mississippi to the Missouri, res
cu iik people camped out on ground
which they supposed was beyond the
reach of the flood, but which was being
rapidly submerged. At Puducah, Ky., 511
milemip the Ohio, there is much uneasi
ness. The city is not protectrd hy th
levees as Cairo is, nnd in 1HH2 it flooded
lo a depth of six feet. Already water
has reached witnin a lew feet of the door
ol the Richmond House which stands on
the river front, and two great tobacco
warehouses are flooded Ten thousand
hogsheads of tobocco stored in them
were removed Inst week. On Sunday the
marine ways were eom)ielled to suspend
operalions lieeause of the flood, and the
stenmer ltllewild, which was ungergoing
repairs, had to be let down unfinished.
Hnlclde of a Man and HIM Wife at
Stiixwatkk. Minn., March3. August
f.roth, ol South Fifth street, murdered
his wife Bertha early this evening and
then committed suicide, a raior being
used in each case. Uroth left a note, indi
cating that to-dav his wife confessed to
him Hint in 1H83 nt llomern, in tier
nianv, a policeman had srduced her while
she was the wife ol'Croth nud he was
here trying to make her a home. No
other explanation for the murder a. d
suicide oi double suicide was given. It
looks as though the deed was mutually
agreed upon. About 7.30 both parents
kissed their three children, telling them
to go to bed, and that if they had to live
with strangers hereafter they must lie
good children. The parents then passed
into n front room, anil soon the children
were roused by a suspicious noise and
called a neighbor, llolh parents were
then found on the trout room floor well
criug in blood and dead, n razor lying
near the husbnnd's right hand. There
was no sign of any struggle. An inquest
will lie held to-morrow.

Kai.kii-.h. N. C. March 4. The supreme
court yesterday evening decided a most
ituportant case Hint ol Keiimonn against
the town of Tarboro. The point in
volved was whether or not the section ot
the constitution which provides that all
taxes levied by any county, city, town,
or township 's.inll be uniform and ml
vHlnnm upon all property in ihc nme
except proiKTty exempted by the consti
tution, including money, credits, invest
ments, &c, r whether it applies only to
Iinrticulur subjects which may lie selected
it the legislature fortaxation. Taecourt
holds that it includes nil solvent credits,
investment, money, cite. This overrules
the case of l'ullcr' against Kuleigh, ren
dered ome years ago.

Washington, March 4. Five hour
this afternoon behind closed door the

of the investigation of the leaks by which
the proceedings of the executive session

The work ol converting this raw ma

with this latest stroke of the Roane Iron

the iron business of the South. The sup-
olv of ore is inexhaustible, and the
greater portion of the iron will be used

Nkw York, March 4. The past history
of tin handsome cosmopolite. Miss Har
riet Drury, who was committed to the
Insnne Asylum nt Flatbush, last week,
from Mme, De Saussup 's home for girls,
has been unraveled. She is 33 years of
age and is the daughter of Erastus Drury,
a prominent citizen of Fond tlu Lnc,
Mich., who died fifteen years ago. Her
mother died in 1K82, and her property,
which is of considerable value, is in the
care of A. (i. McDonald. In the spring
of 1 SMI, while traveling in Kuroie with
some companions, Miss Drury's
hallucination of a phantom lov
er, to which she had lieen for
several years a victim, obtained such
complete ascendency over her that her
mind gave way anil she became irrespon
sible, erratic and violent at times. After
an examination the wns committed to a
ctlebratcd institution for the insane in
Uremen. Through the interlerence of the
I'nited States Consul she was shortly
afterward released and went to the home
of her aunt, Mrs. .Sicrgc.i.ul l.iiuiel, Md.
She got it into her head, alter a two
mouths' residence at Laurel, that her
aunt was her enemy, and sue Icll the
house and was not heard of again until
she turned up at Mme. De Saussure's
house .ind applied lor u home. Miss
Drury has a hall brothe-, H. II. Drury,
at Grand Knpids, Mich. She has ulways
been a devout Protestant.

A few days later it was claimed that
O'Connor was alive ami that his wile

reason lo believe that O'Connor was
buried in his own larson. O'Connor
Saturday night stated that the grave in
the cemetery is empty, and he exhibited
a cut half way across the abdomen. Hi

tnd that his 'lodv was taken up nnd
