A HELL ON EARTH.
We had occasion, the other clay, to re
fer .- tho moral denravitv of East St.
Louis, and to detail some of the enormities
that served to give that tity its bad emin
ence. Ve confined ourselves to the facts
made public by the newspapers of the place
gathering from a single issue the partic
. ulars of a half dozen horrors of the black
est and most damnable character. But all
tlicso sink to the level of mere peccadilloes
when compared with the carryings-on of a
gang of scoundrels who infest that portion
of the suburbs ot the city, known as Wheel
ove's crove. It is now known that, over
two weeks ago, this gang seized a young
woman of the vicinity, hurried her into the
grove and there, after cruelly and fatally
outraging her, so disposed of the body that
two week's search failed to reveal its where
abouts. Ia alluding to this matter, the St.
Louis Republican says :
'But it is not the reported murder that
we desire to call attention to at present ; it
is the disgraceful and insufferable state of
things which the statements of witnesses
show to exist iu and around East St. Louis.
All these statements have been extorted by
reporters from person who spoke in moral
terror of a gang of desperadoes who make
Wtieelovc grove their home, and who are
suspected of being the murderers cf the
. missing girl. Each, of these persons spoke
reluctantly and in acknowledged dread of
the venceance of the desperadoes. Two
persons living near the rove heard a wv
man's crid of murder and shrieks for help
on the night of the supposed disappearance,
but said they "even dared cot go out, for
this is a lonely place, and after night it is
not safe for a woman to go out." A third
person stated that he saw the girl in the
irrove with the tramps; tliut lie even
suw them abusing her, and heard her
screams, but, ho added, l,I was afraid to go
to her rescue, although I wus right litre
working, and they were right over there.
If I had gone to her assistance, or left here
as it to go for help, they would have killed
me. I know them well, and know what
they are capable of doing. There is noth
ing but the worst kind of desperadoes over
there, and they do as' they please, aud are
never interfered with.'1 Another witness
suid : ,-I beard the cries, but such things
have become so common in this unprotect
ed region that I paid not much attention
to them. We never see a policeman here,
and the only safety after nightfall is to
stay ia the house." It is even stated that
one man living near the crove told his
neighbor bin wife saw some men carrying
off the dead Wly of the girl, but that be
afterward denied the statement, because
lie feared they would kill him .
It is insufferable that a gang of scoun
drels bhould thus take possession of a grove
lying on a frequented highway, m ar a town
. of several thousand inhabitants, and rob,
plunder, ravish and murder with impunity.
Such a thing could not t-xixt in the neigh
liorhood of a rude mining town in the fur
. West for forty-eiht hours: the scoundrels
would be hung by lynch law us soon as
; rope enough could bo secured to hung tlicin
' with. It it a disgrace to the well-govei ned
tate of Illinois and it order-loving pfp!t,
that u.'!i a community of scoundrels, worse
oven tliaa a jungle of wild beasts, has k'en
permitted to defy all law and right in the
' luburU of last St. Louis."
For tho ;ke of law and order and the
good name of the State, Governor Culkui
should take this matter in hand. Tho au
thoritic-B of East St. Louis engaged for
years, in tho work of beating, wounding
and killing one another, can have but littlo
caro for tho security of others. Tho general
public expect, therefore, that the Oovornor
will excrciso tho authority with which he is
clothed toviudicato the majesty of the law,
and teach tho cut-throats of Wheelove's
grove, with bayonet and ball, if necessary,
that the State is yet willing and always
able to protect its citizens in the enjoyment
of life, property and tho pursuit of happi
ness. NEIGHBORHOOD SEWS.

After waiting; for several months for iMrs.
Snobs, Modestus, and others to exhaust
their ammunition, (or tho reader's patience)
I now claim a placo in your columns. This
being the 103d year of our independence,
the day was given up entirely to the boys
or rather they took it and made the custom
ary noise,with fire-crackers and old muskets.
Being the nation's birthday, it would of
course be expected that some patriot
would turn our engle loose and let him
But no. Tho noble bird, manacled and
silent, viewed the scene from afar, whilst
'Young America,'' made the air ring with
The day may well call forth some remin
iscences, ot which Americans may well be
proud. When Jefferson presented the
Declaration of Independence to his com
peers, he little dreamed that the principles
there enunmtsa would be set at naught
in one hundred years, while one-half ot the
Union he so much loved would be under
the iron heel of the satrap, while the other
half would be weachins the doctrine of
eternal hate. But with the return ot rea
son, the era of true union will also return,
and then let us be Americans once
THE CUOrS, ETC.
About the crops I have the same story
that all your correspondents hayo to tell.
The wheat is unsurpassed, both in quality
and yield. The corn crop promises well,
while the oats and potatoes are lair.
But there is another crop winch as a re
porter I must not forget. I mean the baby
crop. Mrs. , on the hill, has a new
baby. Mrs, , on the main road, has
ababv. and Mrs. . further on, has
two babies. Mrs.L , has a nine
pounder, while Mrs. G , has a modest
little one, barely tipping the scales at four
Now, this crop, though not so. profit
able ns the wheat crop, is
far more valuable to posterity; for what
would posterity do without men and wo
men, and how can we have men and wo
men without babies? So I think the mat
ter settled that the baby crop is more im
portant than tlie wheat crrp.
As a news-gatherer your correspondent
hns not get much to say. The vegetable
season is very important to t! e niThants
and farmers of this locality.
Thus far the shipments have not been
satisfactory. But we must prepare for
lower prices. The shipments still con
tinue. There are two sawmills at (or near) this
place. One, Efj. Hunter's, ' furnishes em
plovmcnt for about a dozen men. The
other, Gunter's, about the same.
