A few days ago himdbi''s were thrown
about our streets which adverted, over

As before said, yesterday was the day
fixed upon, but owing to the fact that the
"windows of heaven" were open the
greater portion of tho day the colored peo
ple wisely remained at home.
About two o'clock p.m., yesterday, a
team of mules belonging to Hal'iday Bros.,
and used in hauWig bran, flour, etc., from
the mills and warehouse to the wharf boats,
was being driven over the stage leading into
the second stoiy of HalUday and Phillips'
wharf boat, when ono of the mules became
obstreperous, and, shoving tho other off of
tho stage, fell on op of him, both becom
ing entangled in the harness. The wagon
remained on tho stage uninjured. By cut
ting the harness the animals were extricated
f'oui their painful position, and, be'ng
placed upon their pins again, were found
to be all right.
The way the money goes from the
pockets of mechanics and laborers can be
discovered by investigating the beer saloon
business on the question of receipts. On
Saturdays the beer saloon keepers gener
ally change numbers of five dollar bills,

on that day. On Monday the five dollar
bills are gone, and silver dollars are pre
sented. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays
half dollars are received, ami on Thursdays

Tho boiler formerly used by A. Mackio
& Co. in their corn mills, and which lived
through the fire, was loaded upon a cart
and an attempt made to transport it to Mr.
Smith Torrance's boiler shop lor repairs,
yesterday. Six horses were hitched to tho
cart, and when they had proceeded as far as
Eighteenth street with it they became
balky. Numerous aud various were the
plans to make them complete the trip, sug
gested by the curious crowd, but, though
somoofthem were actel upon, tho mules
refused to go. About an hour was spent
in the vain attempt. We did not stay to
see tho end.
If there ever was a time :,i tho history
of business when advertising could bo made
to pay, that time is surely just now. Tho
vast crop of wheat is being turned into
money with ninrvolous speca, nu 1 a good
proportion of that money will go for dry
goods, clothing, boots and shoes, carpets,
watches, jewelry, books, piunos, organs,
pictures, groceries, furniture, cutlery,
hardware, millinery, clc. etc. The moral of
all this is, that those who have any of these
things, or any other things to sell, and can
bring tho matter before tho people iu tho
most favorablo and speediest light, will
reap tho fruits of their enterprise ut tho
expense of tho slower going neighbors. .
Tho grocery store of Alderman Pettis,
on tho corner of Twenty-eighthVtreet and
, Commercial, was night before Inst entered
by a thief or thieves, ond believing him
self or themselves owaer or owners of all
ho or they surveyed, appropriated to bis
or their uso ono hundred end flf: pounds
of fine bacon and then, 'n tho light of tho
full moon took himself or themselves to
somo safe retreat. Although sonic effort
has been made by the ever ilgllent officer,
Lally and oflurs, to discover the where
abouts of tho thief or th'evcs no cluo has
been found to him or them and it is our
private opinion, publicly expressed, tho
prospect for never biinging him or them to
justice is very Jino and large.
Somo time ago Mr. A. J. Curie placed
a fine blooded horse into Mr. Joe Clark's
pasture in Missouri. The m'tnal made
its escape 60on after and was lost. Upon
dilligent search and inquiry it was found
that a fanner had captured tho horse, used
it iu the plow and killed it, or, at least,
the horse died while in his possession. Mr.
Carle sued the farmer for the value of
the horso pnd received judgment from
Judge Harker in this county. The o'her
party was dissatisfied with the dec'sion
and appealed to Missouri law. The suit
was accord'tigly taken there ond lias re
cently como off. The court there susta'n
ing Judge Barker's decision. Mr.
Carle received judgment for $318.00 which,
together with all the costs, will make 'ho
sum that the defendant will have to fork
over, about five hundred dollars.
The follow 'ig dispatch to the St.
Louis Republican, dated at Springfield, is
of interest to our Democratic and Repub
lican readers alike: "II n. I). Gillhatn,
Gen. Lewis Parsons, A. Orendorff, C. C.
Brown, Chas. Ridgely and Hon. J. II.
Oberly, members of the' Democra.'c state
executive committee, have been engaged all
day in making out a campaign route for
speakers from home and abroad, commenc
ing September 1. The design is to open
with a grand mass meeting at some cen
tral point in each congressional district,
and follow these meetings with coun.y
mass-meetings at eveiy county seat rnd
principal town. The assignment is not
complete, but your correspondent is ad
vised that the committee have arranged for
the most thorough canvass ever made by
the Democratic poriy in Illinois. Among
other prominent speakers who have signi
fied their intention to assist in the canvass
are Hon. Thos. Bayard, John Kelly, John
W. Forney, and Wade Hampton."
The News ot last eveuing publishes an
item intended to justify the broad and un
truthful assertion always made by ignor
ant and boastful Republicans that the lie
publican party saved the Union. In order
to gain its point it proceeds
in this case, as it has done
in others, to grossly misrepresent facts.
It seems to be the highest ambition of tho
editor of the New s to serve the Republican
party, aud this, too, without any regard to
the character of tlio means used in the
accomplishment of his purpose. We had
pictured him as a man of brains and prin
ciple who would not condescend to
a falsehood, not even to serve
his own personal interest, much less
to further the interests of any
politiaal organization, or to ruin another.
But we fear that we must abandon our
ideal as a fraud spurn our sweet dream as
a hallucination, and relight our little lan
tern to continue our painful search for an
honest man amoug Republican newspaper
men and office-holders. Would that wo
could believe him to be only mistaken, we
would then still rejoice at his
innocence, but he is (or ought to
be) too intelligent for that. But
enough ot this. The item to which we
refer gives the soldier vote of Ohio, Penn.,
Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Califor
nia. It gives the total number of ' soldier
votes" of these states cast ia 1364 as 129,
572 and says that only 23,347 of this num
ber were Democratic votes. The editor
comments upon these figures as follows:
"These figures would seem to indicate that
for evey Democrat in the army there were
about four Republicans.'' The News man
appears to be, to say the least, either natur
ally obtuse or willfully obtuse. But we
we believe that ho is neither.
It is bad enough to take it for g.'ented
that all those who cast their votes m those
states at that time for the Republican
were Republicans; for mnny Democrats
voted w ith them because they were for tho
war aud the Union, which were the chief
issues before the people in that campaign;
it is bad enough to name tho vote iu only
six states, all of which ure, and have
been ovcrwhelmingly Republican and
which must therefore of necessity have
furnished more Republican than Demo
cratic soldiers, but, to take a list of tho lit
tle batch of men that these states furnished,
throw their respective members into col
umns, Htriko a total of a little 139,572 men,
showing that only twenty per cent, were
Democrats, and then exclaim with a victor
ious air that "these figures indicate that for
every Democrat in the entire urtny there
were about four Rcpulicans this, we
say, is too glaring a blunder to be
excused. If the editor will search for the
truth he will find that "the nrmy," tlio
Union aimy,we menu was not composed of
129,572 men, but of about 2,000.000 men ;
and, wo venture to say that if "the army"
not 9. litth) handl'ullof it taken from a few
of the Republican states, but tho entire
union aiimy, is subjected to this analysis,
the percent c of Democrats will bo found
very respectable nnd tho Republicans
will have no reason to crow. But
I it should be also considered that many of
tho Union Democrats refused to vote at all,
either ono way or tho other. In conversa
tion with Mr. Burnett, who has been tn tho
Union army, we learned that company B.,
Oth Michigan, of which ho was a member,
and whoso officers were Gen. Geo. H.
Thomas.called the "savior of tho army ;" Col.
McKay, of Texas; Capt. Barlow; Ad. Gen.
Flint, ond Gen. Von Schroedor, all the offi
cers ond two-thirds of tho men, wero Demo
crats, nearly all of whom refused to vote
either way. We append the following from
the official records for the perusal of whom
ever it may concern:

Glancing over the statement of property
assessed in Alexander county, for the year
lSO, we discovered some ficts which will
prove interesting to the readers of Tue
Of improved lands, Alexander county
contains 20, 470 acres and these are valued
at $205,273 or, on. an average,
$7.75 per acre. This shows that
there are a less number of
unimproved lands in this county th in
any other in the district, but its valuation
is higher than that of Jackson. Johnson,
Massac,Pope or Williamson counties. Of un
improved lands this county has 82.324 acres
and their average value per acre is given at
$2 14. The total number of acres in the
county, improved and unimproved, is 103,
The number of improved and unim
proved town and city lots in the county are
7,702 and their average value per lot is
given at $144.75. Of improved lota there
are 18.j. ind these arc valued
at $154.25. The unimproved lots,
which are .1,907 in number, are valued
at $47.55 per lot
The total value of all property assessed in
the county $2,031,019.
The number ot horses which enjoy life in
Alexander is 1,305 and $27.29 is what they
are valued at a piece. Of cattle there are
2,930 and these are valued at $133 a head.
Of mules and asses 735 have their being

erage value is $20.80; watches and clocks,
814, of which the average value is $3 23;

at $11.18 apiece.
Alexander county has more pianos than
any of the ten counties which comprise this
district, except Randolph county. Alexan
der has 127 pianos and Randolph 131.
But it appears that our pianos arc of a bet
ter quality than are those of Randolph
county, since ours are ass ssed at $74.02
apiece and those of Randolph arc assessed
at only $44.02 apiece. Of melodeons and
organs we have only 23 an J they aro valued
Merchandize, $138,243: Material and
aud manufactured articles, $0,488.
Manufacturers' tools, implements and
machinery, $103.15. In these Alexander
county is ahead of all other counties in the
district, except two. These two aro Union
and Williamson counties. Tho assessment
on agricultural tools, implements and
machinery Alexander county shows up less
than any county in the district, except
Pulaski county, the assessment on those
Particles in that county beiug $3,354
and Alexander county $10,300

took a change of venue to Squire Comings
and wero ucquitted by him. There was
one other case one of less consequence
before the Squire, but lie having failed to

blame him and not us for the non-appearance
of the particulars of the case.
Too following were the cases before

charged with disorderly conduct, was fined
live dollars and cost.

helplessness. Very often it is much better
for both mother and child that the help of
a strong, healthy nurse is secured to assist
in the care of the babes; still, no matter
how worthy of trust we may consider a
nurse or servant, a babe who's lifelong hap

hood is passed is too precious to be given
unreservedly to her care. One very hot
August day not very long since, as I was
enjoying the grateful shade from tho
tierce noonday sun, on my own cool
piazza, I was startled by the
pitiful wail of a babe. Upon looking up I
saw an elegant baby carriage wheeled by a
colored nurse cornitTg down the street while
the poor little victim I can call it nothing

sobbin''. aud moaning in its discomfort.
Stepping to the gate I called to the nurse
to stop, and releasing the little
creature trom its nest oi not pa-
lows I took it in my arms, carried it in the
shade soothed, fanned and comforted1 it
until with a sweet smile on its beautiful,
innocent, face it diopped to sleep on my
bosom. "Whose chill is it," I enquired of
the nurse, who had dropped in a chair and
was fanning herself Igorously. "Mrs. ,'
she replied. "Is that possible"! exclaimed.
She lives fully a mile from here. Surely

were my eager questions. "Oh, she docs not
care where I take it so I take good care of
it. She is not afraid to trust me !" Can It
be thought that a mother could be so de
ceived in a nurse, or is she culpably care
less of tho welfare and comfort of tho
innocent creature God has given to her care?
Ah! no wonder so many little cherubs
change their dainty dresses for their tiny
shrouds while yet iu their helpless infancy.
Another right that babies aro olteu denied
is the right to be alone. A healthy babo

too much. I have seen a sweet baby lying
in its little' crib looking at its
hands, cooing Hiid crowing to itself in just

come some one, snatch it up, smother it
with kisses, bounce and jump it up and
