Dan having come back to his firet love, the

Wo shall watch the old man closely, for the

marks by Miss Patterson concluded the ex

satisfied with the entertainment.
In the west, as elsewhere, women have
a controlling voice in establishing the
price to be paid for servant girl's
drudgery, and, strange as it may
seem, ber decree is, with but few
exceptions, that her sex shall receive almost
the poorest recompense known for toil. In
other words, the most pitiless hand, resting
with clammy touch upon the work girlsi
giving a atone wnen bread is asked fur, is
that of woman, who grudgingly grants the
ill who cares for her household and for
her wardrobe, almost a beggar's pittance.
In this respect there is no difference be
tween the two sections of country. But it
maybe said that in the East aristrocracy has
succeeded in establishing the heartless rule
that it is not proper for a "respectable"
girl to earn her own living, even though it
be in tho office of a merchantile or other
establishment, which doctrine, it is pleasing
to note, is being very generally ignored by
the young ladies here, many of whom find
easy employment with good salaries, out
sideof the kitchen and the laundry.
No matter to what extent other por
tions of the country may need appropria
tions for river improvement, the old Fox
and Wisconsin river job always gets its
half million or so every year. For a quar
ter of a century that work has been drain
ing money out of the treasury, now eight
ornine millions of dollars in the aggro
gate, and still the "great water-way con
necting the Mississippi and the lakes" is
as far from completion as ever. The con
tractors, however, pocket their profits and
continue to blow up rocks and dig year
after year, and there is as much work to he
done as ever. Last year thirty dams were
built, at an enormous cost. Wo hope the
work will be completed within this century,
but in the meantime congress should be
quite as zealous in making appropriations
for the Mississippi river as for this sniall
Bized creek in Wisconsin and, although wo
have no doubt but that the represenatives '
from this part of the state, will not go to
sleep over the interests ot their constituents,
it might not bo entirely amiss to punch
them up a littlo by public demonstrations
in dill'erent parts of the district. The time
for action is now at hand, ami should not
bo allowed to pass unimproved,
Our readers will recall the item pub
lished some days ago in these columns,
about a man who came floating down tho
Ohio river upon a llatboat, which was borno
past thi3 port by tho ice, about twenty feet
from tho shore, near midnight.
His craft passed down along
the Missouri shore and when it
reached a point several miles below here,
his cries for help were heard and be was
assisted ashore. He tooted it aloug the
bank to Bird's point from whence he
crossed on the lerryboat to this city
Here he inquired for Col, J. H. Rearden
and having found him, ho told his story.
He gave his name as Josephus Hall, saying
that he had served in the army under him
(the Col.i;that his home was at New Grand
Chain, ami that he and another man, seeing
the barge floating by, determined to
catch it. They entered a skiff
and started in pursuit. Raving reached it,
Hall jumped aboard of tho barge, but the
other man remained in the skiff. Both
floated down tho river together for some
distance, but soon became separated and
lost to each other in the darkness. The
rest of bis adventure is
known. Col. Rearden recognized
the man as bavin" been a member
of his company during the war, and gave
him enough money to tako him borne.
Yesterday tho Col. received a postal card
from Hall, stating that he had arrived
safely home, and again thanking him for his
A good crowd turned out to the Re
form hall last night, where tho best of en
tertainment was furnished. Messrs. George
S. Fisher, G. M. Al len, .1. W. Davidson, of
this city, ami Mr. Brown, of Carboadale,
addressed tho meeting in a manner that
gave evidence of their deep interest in
the temperance cause and aroused corres
ponding feelings in the heart, of their
hearers. Among other interesting matters
that were attended to. was that of
securing a prominent temperance speaker
here at aneaily day. Efforts are being
made to induce Mr. Robert Lnwcry
to come and, from what wis
said, it is to be judged that he will certain
ly be here ut no distant day. A corres
pondence has also been opened with Messii.

About f):l5 o'clock yesterday morning
the steamer T. T. Hilliuan, while laying at
one of the wharf boats, was Mruck by a
great mass of ire, which came down the
river with an almost irresistable force, and
so badly damaged that she
sank within an hour afterwards.
Just before she was struck her pilot, John
Young, seeing the approaching danger,
sprung to the wheel and sought to avoid it,
but could not do so and the huge mas
struck the starboard side of her hull and
crus'ied it, permitting the water to rush in
with considerable force. All the hands,
who stayed on board like brave mm, were
immediately put to work, and the rripphd
craft was run down along the river bauk to
a point at. tho lower end of the Illinois
Central railroad company's new
warehouse, where, alter floating
for about ten minutes longer,
she settled down somewhat gently, in about
ten feet of water, at the after starboard
corner. Ib-r lirst motion at settling was a
sudden sinking of the starboard side, and
it seemed as th iugh she would turn rn
lirely over, which caused a fearful cracking
of timbers mid rattling of kich
en and other furniture, Hnd struck
terror to those on board, causing them to
make a break for tho larboard side to get
off In the rush for the shore, one man
was shoved into the water, but be came on
dry land without any difficulty. The Hill
iuan plied between this point and Hickman
and had laid here for several days. She
was commanded and owned by Captain
Ambrose, a worthy old gentleman, and she
was not insured. The wrecking boat
"Charlie Hill" will commence the work of
raising her this morning.

The spirit is moving rue to write, and as

Weather is a subject that is always in
order; it is with us night and day, and ol
late has uot lacked variety; an "old saw"
has it that, "variety is the spi :e of life;"
therefore, we ought to be highly pleased
with it, but then a person can't live on
spice alone. Yet the weather has an inter
est peculiarly u own. Nothing else forms
a more certain and continuous topic for
conversation, suggestion, speculation and
guessing; and why shouldn't it( Just
think what a dreadful calamity it. would
be to this country if the weather crop
should fail at the beginning ol a session ol
congress. What un enormous quantity of
congressional gas, the country would be
deprived of, a gas so much needed to
throw light on polities. Politics and
police matters being somewhat connected,
my thoughts naturally wander from the
former to the latter. I remember having
read somewhere ( I believe in Webster's
blue back spelling book.) that criminals
were punished to prevent crime. In the
case of drunkenness, whether the mode of
procedure is a punishment or a reward
seems to me to be an open question. In
default of the payment of the fine and cost,
Mr. Drunkard is chugged into the jiil for
one or two weeks as the case may be, and
this is repeated on him once or twice a
month, so that he gets fed and housed at
the taxpayers' expense, without profit to the
community either in morals, money or in
tellert. Diuii ken r,es under the law is a
crini", and a such, should be punished, but
ought not common sense to teach us that
wln.'ii a modi' of punishment failed in the
object intended, to try some other? What
are the reasons for continuing such a
mode of piinishin nt' Is it to furnish an
opportunity fir oti'ms to be filled by hun
gry politicians, to loaf around the
streets and st hort intervals try
the back and hind legs of such chairs as
come in their way, or wouldn't it suit the
convenience, or tilhof the drain o-llers, to
nave a cliang" in tlie in itr.er: it tiie-e an
not the reasons, allow me to suggest, that
dianiseller as well as the dratndi inki r, be
fined in cases of 1 1 1 u n k n . Surely, the
former could hardly object doing the
square thing in the mailer, as he has bad
ail the profits, it would be nothing hut fair
that In! should pay part of the expenses.
In looking over the political news, I ob
