of tic records and paper- in the county

ail of which we're destroyed, can hardly be
overestimated. We learn from Miles F.Gil

court there since M nday, and win returned
ye-tefday evening, that many conjec
uresure made a- to the cause of the lire,

was foiiil near the dour of the county

number of sidewalks, went intoetl'ect on the
UJili in-t. Within thirty days after the
Ritli in-t. our citiznn.s are at liberty to con
struct or leeon-iruct the sidewalk in front
of their premises, as the orililiaiu e pro
vides, but if after the expiration of the
thirtv ilays the sidewalk has not been built,
tic ciiy cleik will, for ten days, nd-veiii-e
for sealed piopo.-als for the cun
triii :ion and reconstruction of tin- walks
mentioned in the ordinance, and the con
1 1 i. t will be awarded to the lowest respon
sible bidder. After this has been done the
citieiis whose property is benefitted by the
walk will b" assessed, we believe, one-half
il.-co-t and will be required to p y it. We
make mention of this fact m order that
those of our citizens, who believe that they
can build the sidewalk in front of their
premises lor less than the a-sessiic'iit will
amount, may be duly notified. There is
now due the city on sidewalk assessments
nearly three thousand dollars.
President Taylor, the present head of
the Latter Day Saints, has had a new re

contl lent of the genuineness and truth of
bis niesHiige and utterance. He did not lix
dates, but. at no distant day, according to
the Mormon prophet, this country is to be
shaken from its circumference by war.
The people who will not bear arms will be
obliged to lice somewhere for safety. They
will flock to I'luli, will receive ami give
them shelter. These re.ugces will
fuel out thai the Mormons are
honest, righteous people, mid the
church will receive large accessions when
their sincerity nnd purity an; made mani
fest to the strangers. The Mormons will
thus gain in numbers mid political power,
and will be able to withstand nil the as
saults of t Imir enemies, When the Constitu
tution of the I'nited Slates shall have been

serve a copy, hold it up to all nations, and
carry on the country according to the de
sign of the fathers iiml founders. Such is
the substance of the late-t Mormon revala
tion. --The old buildings next to John Sack
Lerger's, on Ohio Levee, which, some time
ago, owing to their poor foundation, sunk
three feet by the foundation giving way,
have entirely disappeared. They have been
torn down and the old lumber is now piled
upon Twelfth street, between Commercial
and the levee. Upon the lots which are now
vacant some of our enterprising merchants
should erect a substantial bu-iuess hou-e.

petition for the location, an l it is probable j
there will be a sectional dispute in th" state :

in all probability, be held there thi-year. I

feel that if the fair is a state institution it
should be located at the capital without
expense to Sni ingticiil or Sangamon county,
and if it is not a -late institution no appro
priation from the state treasury should be
made 'o support it.

A gentleman living live miles from tie;
Cape would, before the road wis bni.t, in
the tall and winter t ike his team of two
yoke of oxen and put three-quartets of a
cord of wood on the wagon and make one
trip a day to town. After the gravel roil
w,i-built he sold hi- oxen un bought a
pitir of mules, and instead ot putting on
three-quarters of a cord he put on a cord
and then make two trips a day instead of
one trip and using only two mules instead
oftwo yoke of oxeu.
Let some of the bit and most public
spirited men of the county take hold of
this matter, form a stock company under
the general corporation act, and build a
gravel road, running from Cairo, north,
thiough, or as near the center of the
county as practicable: that done, an 1 with
the amount of road t,ax voted, which ap
plied judiciously ou the county roads, this
county would have roads second to none in
the country, and he a credit to the enter
prise of its people.
In conclusion, don't forget to take steps
for a systematic work to devise means, an-F
and then put them in practice to itulm e
immigration to this county.
