The Army Worm in Illinois.
[From the Prairie Farmer.]
JACKSON COUNTY, May 27.
Eat. Prairie Farmer: I am sorry to
state the destructive "Armr Worm" is upon
as in innumerable multitudes. (Scarcely a
meadow or grass plat will escape entire de
struction. So numerous are tbey in some
places after having mowed down lbs mea
dows, tbey next attack tbe young corn, tbe
wheat, and oven clean the weeds before
them. And it is even - difficult in some
places- to , keep tbem ont of the' bouses.
This is no exaggeration, but on the contra
ry, falls far short of a full description of their
proceedings. - '
Tbey made their appearance about the
last days of April, in the meadows and
and grassy yards aud plats. The cold
weather and backward spring favored, thejr
growth and increase, for they dread the hot
sun. Having eaten out tbe meadows, and
warm weather coming on, they begun to
travel from fiold to field, in some . places
causing tbe roads to appear as, a black, mo

Douglas' Opinion of Davis.
Senator Douglas hsd a power of will al
most unequaled, which he Hon. Schuyler
Colfax likens to the roassiv,driFngi .wheel
of a locomotive, propelling, not only the
engine itself, bat the fsr reaching train be
hind. Mr. Colfax says:
Though widely separated , front . Judge
Douglas in our. political affiliations, our, re
lations with him during the many years we
have known biro,, were always personally
cordial. But this was. only in accordance
with his usage. He would invite to bis ta
ble the very : men with whom he; had tbe
sharpest political encounters, and perhaps
tbe next day enter the lists again with ibera.
in all tbe . acerbities pf controversy. lie
would often remark;, that he tried to pay up
bis political debts as he went-along, ee.thet
he would have no trouble with thero in aoj
cial intercourse, and would leave none for
his executors to settle, He so rarely at
tacked or denounced any on in social eon
venation, that we, were struck, years ago,
with remarks of hia, addressed to a Massa
chusetts Congressman and ourself. in retard
to Jefferson Davis, whom be declared then,
with apparently prophetic forecast, would
prove himself utterly disloyal to his coun

Gen. Scott's Plan to Capture Richmond.

Scott tbe other day to ascertain bia plans
in regard to advancing troops on Richmond
Tbe General informed him confidentially
that tbe advance, of course, would be. very
rapid. The Fire Zouaves would lead the
way aa soon aa it was determined to take

The Character of the Troops at Washington.
Tbe Washington correspondent -of the
Cioeinnati Commercial writes! ' ' ' "
" Indeed tbe general sobriety, constant po -liteness
and the accompanying Self-respect
of the soldiers is most gratifying If I
should search for impoliteness lipre J iliojild

diers, but to the departments.., where, rhen
have ' axes of one kind or another, to be
ground. Thousands of the private, soUijers
nave the faces of gentlemen of .eaucatiort
and understanding. There is reported to bo
a great contrast between the 'southern" offi
cers and privates, in favor of the former.' I
have seen regiments here in which I think
tbe contrast is 'decidedly ' in favor of the
privates. It is a most interesting study to
mark the faces of the men of regiments, as
tbey arrive and march up tbe avenue.- - You
see high platoons of high-nosed, firm-jawed,
Beavuy-Bearded, keen-eyed men who never
left home to go a soldiering for the fun of
the . thing.'.- They- -have felt it a duty
