SOHIKKEB.—Mr. James Farley received a telegram yesterday conveying the cad news of the death, at Pittsburg, Pa., Sunday night of his daughter, Mary Ellen Scmffer The cause of her ^eath is not known sut her illness was very brief, as a letter aad been received from her, dated last Friday, stating that she was well at that time. Mr. Farley telegraphed immediately to have the body sent itre for burial, but an answer was re* turned stating that the remains could not be preserved, hence it is 'probable that the funeral took place at PUtsburg, yesterday. Deceased was an estimable yonnglady, well known here as Nellie Farley, and her sudden death falls on her parents as a crushing blow. She was 18 years and almost three months old and had been married but seven months.

Dorset! was arous«d by a sus- Icious noise in the direction of his bicken bowse and, on investigating, eard the voices of two men. He re* urned to the bouse secured . a double- urreled breech loading shot gun, put n a couple of shells, mounted a con- ient wall and awaited develop- tents. In a few minutes be aw a man emerge from the hicken house, equipped with a bag into hlch he was attempting to crowd a urn? chicken. A light picket fence was etween Mr. Dorset* and the thief. 'brongh this he fired both barrels of le eun in quick succession; with two ells the fellow tore through a fence, umbled over a wall and became silent. Mr. D. heard the other thief In the pper part of the chicken house, amoved the ladder and went for assiit- nee. When he returned both thieves had disappeared but th* indications were that the man who held the ohiok- n was well peppered with small shot, he game chicken that he had dropped rlpg slightly wounded and the bag erforaud. A Bit; Eagle. The Long Bros., who have been pending some weeks on the Okaw, untlng, sent back to this place a magnificent specimen uf our national uu, the eagle. The bird measured six cut and seven Inches from tip to lip of Is wings 'and hit murderous claws uoked capable of carrying off a pie or beep weighing sixty or seventy-five ouuds. The head, neck and tall of the axle were snow white while the rest of ho body was grey. We believe Messrs. Nulson A Long will have the bird luffed and hunjr up in their place of k Herald, The extraordinary popularity of dyer's Cherry Pectoral Is the natural esult ot its usu by all classes of people or over forty years.

THE WJSTflAL M1880UUI. A fife «*a»5 e| Bluff in Prof r«»», (from ft*, touts iMpabUean.) Mr. John D. Perry returned from New York yesierday« where he had Ron on business connected with the Centra Missouri railroad project. In reply to Inquiries, Mr. Perry said i "The pro ieeted road Is a compromise road between the Central Missouri aad th< Bt, Louis and Kansas City Short Line This arrangement was made for tin purpose ot.connecting the bridge and bridge terminals of this city. The President^ was tendered and acoepte< by me on the condition t bat the termma facilities oould be secured by ordinance In this oltr for the purpose of securing and constructing the Merchants' bridge with tbe promise by tbe railroad tba St. Louis should M the terminal instead of Alton, as bad been determined upon previously by the parties controlling; th< franchises of the road. With thi understanding with the Merchants Bridge and Terminal company, I wen to New York and there arranged absolutely with responsible parties t< abandon tbe scheme to terminate the road for tbe present in Alton, and adopt St. Lonis as the terminal pom as soon as the ordinance becomes a law I was authorized to at oncn put engi nuers on the road between the bridei and the crossing of the Missouri rive above St Charles, thereby connecting St. Louis with the present surveys u Kansas City. These are the conditions on which I hare been promised the monerby responsible-parties to build tbe bridge and road, involvingan outlay of at least $12,000,000. A failure t carry out the contract according to this plan will release the parlies controlling the road's franchise, and thev will thei proceed to build the road and bridge to Alton, connecting there with the easteri terminal roads instead of at St. Louis Geo. J. Jfost, formerly President ol the road, and now a director in tbe company, said yesterday: "Tbe construction of the Central Missouri into St. Louis will bo one of the greatest benefits which the city has received in a decade. If the bridge company secures the franchise for its terminal* we will comn in directly from tbe nortli but without terminals there is very little use of coming in, and we will have t. adopt onr old scheme of crossing op posite Alton." . , • In regard to tbe abore the Bepttbltcan says editorially; Mr.John D, Perry makes the welcome announcement that he has secured th money necessary to the construction 01 the Central Missouri, road, and work will begin without delay. It remain.* with the people of this city to deter* mine whether this road, which Is to constitute a part of a great transcontinental route shall be a St. Louis road, or whether it shall be barred out and compelled to carry its business across the river at Alton. This determination must be arrived at quickly, for unless St, Louis allows the road proper term- on! facilities the work on the Alton oridge will soon be under way. Tbis proposition furnishes one more striking llustration of the evil character of the joliey which enables one system of railroads to maintain a wall arouud our city as agaiasl all new enterprise** that may attempt to enter. Yet, when he legislature seeks to afford us a remedy, our "largest shippers" are e.ady to rush to the front with the warning that it will "ruin Missouri" to put a check on this dog w^tbe'manger lollcy. If President Perry thinks it essential hat the main line of the Central Mis* ouri should enter St. Lonis from tbe north, why does he not tun his road on he projected route to a point opposite his city then bridge tbe Missouri and un into St. Louis along the river bank and under the Betlefontalne bluff*, this Is the easiest, cheapest and mom easible route to enter St. Louis, as such road would run directly along be river front. It would cost no more o bridge ibn Missouri opposite this city ban at a point beyond St. Charles, and he difference in distance would be rifling. By bridging the river here, also, and crossing the Missouri at a point directly opposite, tbe C. A A. tbe C. B. & Q. und the I. & St. L. would, by following down tbe smith bank of the Missouri, ecure a more direct inlet to St. Louis ban by any other route, and would also lodge the (iould bridge.
