the nnturo of a quo warranto against tho
Board of Education of tho city of Quincy,
setting forth a regulation of that body by
which colored children are excluded from
the schools In the districts in which they
reside, and obliged to attend one specially
designated for colored children. The
court holds this regulation to be in viola

and boards of education from making or
enforcing any regulation which, either di
rectly or Indirectly, confers different de
grees of educational advantages upon any
one class of children over another, on ac
count of color.

While Mrs. Lincoln is not in want, and
is not likely to be, there will be general
approval of the bill said to have been pro
pared by Rspresentative Springer with the
approval of Senator Logan, and introduced
in the senate by the latter, granting her ar
rears of pension at the rate of three thous
and dollars per annum from April 14tb,
1805 tho date of the assassination of her
husband to July 14th, 1870, the date
from which her pension commenced. This
proposition places Mrs. Lincoln on the
same footing as the wives of soldiers who
perished during the war of the rebellion,
as the time and manner of paying her
pension, and will secure for her nearly $10,
000, covering a period of five years and
threo months. There is hardly a doubt
that the measure will pass promptly with
out any opposition from any quarter not
because Mrs. Lincoln is in need, but as an
act of gratitude to the mcmory of tho first
martyr president of the republic.

Another new enterprise is about to be
started in this city. For several days past,
Captain J. W. Morehead, agent at this
point for several largo soap factories, has
been engaged in working up a feeling
among some of our promineut business men
in tavor of the establishment of a soap fac
tory in this city. Ho has gone so far as to
formulate a plan of action and
has made some headway in executing it.
Ho proposes to organize a stock company
with a capital stock to begin with of five
thousand dollars, and he has already drawn
up the necessary legal papers and obtained,
iu half a day's round, subscriptions to stock
t rom severu! good business men to the amou nt
of thirteen hundred dollars. He has also
given Borne thought' to tho location uf
tho factory and thinks that no better place
could bo found in the city than the brew
ery building; but it is doubtful if that Can
be obtained for Biich a purpose. That a soap
factory, which would manufacture a stand
ard articlo of soap, would pay well in this
cannot bo denied, when it is known that not
less than two thousand boxes of soap aro
brought to, and sold in, this city
every month of tho year. If a number
ot monied men in the city will tako hold of
thematterand conduct it ou a sufficiently
larg sjalo to employ experienced men
who can turn out a first class article of
German or family soap, and in quantities
to meet the demands of tho trade, they will
find that their money and efforts will yield
them asph'ndid revenue. Mr. Morehead
promises to uso his time and talents well in
bringing the undertaking to a successful
isue, but whether ho will succeed orj not
remains to bo seen.

three months prior to expiration of two

son in whose name assessed, if ho con be
found in the county, must bo similarly no
tiffed. 3. The owners or parties interest
ed, if to bo found in tho county, must bo
similarly setvod. 4. If tho owner cannot
bo found iu tho county, and tho premises
aro occupied by a tenant holding uudcr tho
owner, a notice to such tenant or occupant
is a notice to tho owner. 5. If tho proper
ty is unoccupied, and the person in whoee
name it is assessed, or tho owner or party
interested in the land, cannot bo found in

by publication three times in some newspa
per printed io the county, tho first insertion
being not more than five inodths and the
last not Icbs than three months 'prior to the
expiration of two years from tho day of sale.
0. If the owner or f person interested be
unknown to the tax purchasor, the notice
may bo "to the unknown owners or parties
interested." 7. The notice should state
when the property was purchased for taxes;
in whose name it waj taxed ; for what year
it was taxed; a correct description of the
property, and when the time of redemption
will expire. 8. Compliance with these
requirements must be shown by affidavit
of the tax purchaser, or his agent, before a
deed can be obtained. 0. Deeds must be
procured and filed for record within one
year after the expiration of the time of re
demption. Tho Paducah News says: "The most
expensive part as well as the greatest hind
rance to tho traffic between the great cities
in the west, north and northwest and the
south, east of the Ohio and Msssissippi riv
ers, is tho crossing of the Ohio river. The
problem to rid tho railroads of the delay
and expense of crossing by boats has been
difficult to solve, taking Cairo as the point
of crossing. It is a fact -determined by
experiment that there is literally no bottom
or rock for foundation, at any practicable
depth at that point. The plan ot a tunnel
at Cairo has even boon canvassed, involving
millions of expense, but it has been aban
doned as an unavailable scheme. Tho
great width of the bottom and very low
land at all places on tho Kentucky sido
renders any line of crossing impracticable
at any reasonable cost this side of Cairo.
Tho only points on each sido where the op
posite banks of the river afford approaches
for a bridge are Paducah, and a point near
ly opposite this city. Tho bank on the Il
linois shore is many feet above high water,
and the same may be said of the bank at
Paducah as the proper place for a bridge
upon which to cross to tho south. There
cannot be found any place between Pa
ducah and the mouth of the Ohio where
the banks on each side are so favorable to
the location of a bridge If a bridge
was built at this point across the
Ohio river, railroads would to
us as a point to cross. There
is but little doubt ot it were an assured fact
that a bridge would be built here and its
construction commenced, that a number of
rar) roads would at once begin to come to
us, and be here waiting with trains to cross
as soon as the bridge was completed. It is
a fact that a bridge hero would bring all
the railroads we waot, and they would con
tinue to come for years. Wo are informed
that there is a charter granted to build a
bridge at this city across tho Ohio River.
Why not tako hold of the charter, organize
under it and go to work and secure the
requisite amount of stock? We understand
further that a subscription of $25,000 is
necessary to organize the company and put
it in a shape to accomplish its ends. This
amount ought to bo subscribed in a few
hours. Let some of our stirring people
take the matter in hand and at once put the
project on its feet. There is no doubt this
is the quickest and surest way to have rail
roads from the other side of the river come
to ua. It is folly to be dickering with one
railroad company to come and paddle her
business across the river in a boat, when
tho building of a bridge would not only in
duce but compel more than one company,
from the stand-point of its own interest, to
come quickly to cross our bridge. Some
body take hold of tho subject 'and move it
right forward, and let everything bo ready
by the time spring comes, to commence
active construction of the bridge."
The News is enthusiastic, but it seems not
to be very intelligently guided. Its sug
gestion that a bridgo bo built at that point
before there is any demand for such a thing
partakes largely of recklessness, to say tho
least. It is unreasonable to expect that a
corporation of capitalists, or a body of
municipal officials, would expend millions
of dollars of their own or a city's funds or
securities, in order to rear a structure at
Paducah for which there is neither a pres
ent nor prospective demand. It looks liko
hitching the mule at tho wrong end of tho
cart liko establishing and stocking a
United States government mint at the north
pole, expecting some enterprising Bashi
Ba.otik or Esquimoau to establish an
American commercial metropolis there.
Paducah has no uso for a bridge, because
sho has no railroads seeking cntranco to its
gates from over tho river. To build ono
boforo she has any uso for one would be
foolishness, pure and simple, and it will not
bo done; tho News is wasting -brain power
and newspaper space, and ink, and paper,
and postage, and composition, and
press power all in vain in
its efforts to bring about its desire in
this respect. With Cairo it is different.
Here we have the Iron Mountain, tho
Cairo & Texas, tho Mobile & Ohio and the
Chicago, St. Louis & New Orleans roads,
alltetminutiug on the opposite sido from
Cairo of ono or other of the two great riv
ers, and seeking an exchange of traffic
with the Illinois Central, tho Cairo & St.
Louis and tho St. Louis, Wabash & Pacing
roads, terminating on this eiueot toe great
rivers. This traffic has necessitated tho
establishment of extensive railroad yards,
both in this city and opposito it in Missouri
and Kentucky; also of sis inclines three
on this sido of the river, two on the Ken
tucky fidn, and ono on the Missouri eide.
me county, men me notice must uo given
by means of which cars are transferred al
most all day and night by threo largo
steamers and a dozen or more extra heavy
switch engines. This ia an expensive way
of carrying on the transfor business, and
therefore the owners of one of the several
railroads centering here, have made repeated
efforts to establish soma other means ' of
transfor at this point. A bridge or a tun
nel at this point is a necessity; it would
also be a very profitable investment to tho
owners of the institution. The soven or
eight railroads centering hore aro owned by
some of the most powerful . corporations in
the United States, and thoy will, nooner or
later, satisfy this urgent demand by cstab
liBhing;eithor a bridgo or a tunnel. The
obstacles, which have bo far been mot at
this point in this undertaking, aro not an
effectual barrier to the project, against un
limited capital in the hands of enorgetio
men, such as compose the Illinois Central
railroad company and the Jay Gould syn
dicate, and "don't you forget it."
"ILLINOIS STATE TEMPERANCE
Tho temperance people of the state have
been divided into two factions, ono muster
ing under the banner of the ''Alliance,"
and the other ndcr the banner of the
"Christian Union ;" but now, in the beauti
