From the minutes ot twenty-ninth ses
sion of the Southern Illinois conference of
the Methodist Egiscopal church, for which
we believe wo are indebted to Rv.
Whitaker, we learn facts concerning his
church iu this city which may be of in
terest to our readers. The number of of
ficers and teachers of the Sunday school,
is sixteen and tho number of scholars of
all ages, who attend the school, is one
hundred and seventy-five. Of these, sixty-
five are fifteen years old nnd over; fifty are
under filtecn years old, except the infant
class, and tho number of scholars in this
class, is sixty. The Sunday school library
is composed of seventy-five volumes not a
very largo library, but sufficiently large,
and a very good one.
-It has been rumored that the Illinois
Central railroad would establish a line of
steam boats and barges between here and
New Orleans, to facilitate tho transporta
tion of freight especially grain from this
point south. Tho rumor is not entirely
correct, although there ia some foundation
for it. It is well known that at certain
seasons of tho year, when Cairo is tho head
of navigation, and also at other times, the
south bound freight gathers in great quanti
ties at this point and at nearly all stations,
several hundred miles north ot us, awaiting
tho pleasure of steam boats to take it to its
destination from this point. At sometimes,
all tho Bide tracts of tho
road between here and Centralis
were crowded with cars loaded with freight
bound tor this point, to bo continued from
hero by river, and grain would rot on the
tracks for the want of means for river trans
portation. Tho company has looked to tho
river interests to remedy this evil, and to
supply tho great and continually incroaa-
ng demand for water craft to carry grain
etc., from this point south, but it hni until
now, looked in vain, But it has determined
now, so wo understand from Mr. Jamcn
Johnson, that the necessary birges and
boats must be forthcoming, and that tin.
ess tho river men meet tho demand for the
coming rush of freight, the company will
take tho matter in hand and, departing
from its resolution to confine its efforts
solely to railroading, will establish
a line of barges that will carry the
great quantity of freight south uith dis
patch, and thus opvn a free flow of com
merce between the extreme north and the
extreme south at all seasons.
The Christian church was filled to

Dr. C. W. Dunning has removed Ins
office from Sixth street to the rooms form

street. They arc three in number and are
to be devoted to various purposes. The

covered with handsome carpets, oil cloths
and rugs; the walls newly papered and
will bo decorated with pictures and
brackets; the windows are hung with cur
tains, and each room is to be appropriately
and elegantly furnished. When all is
finished the Doctor will, beyond all doubt,
have the most magnificently arranged suit
of rooms in tho city, of which he, may
justly be proud.
The Holidays are fast approaching,

She was gentle, loving, patient, forebearing,

entering the academy and when yet quite
young, she was of a serious but not somber
turn of . mind ; was indifferent to many
things that are generally alluring to girlish
tastes and loved home and its quiet and
peaceful ways. Her self sacrificing labor
were many, as arc tho labors of all those
similarly situated and for these, too, she
will be remembered and missed by a host
of friends. In her last days the good sisters
of the academy and all tho dear and
kind friends of the great city were unceas

sweet and gentle-tempered woman down
