Yecterduy President Ackermaa and

to that gentlemen's resignation, and by hc

him, in luced him to withdraw his r situa

--"Clear or fuir and cold" is what Yen-
nor says the weather "Uht to be from to-
lay until the 25th. That would be about
the kind of weather most people would like
to see at this season of the year; but from
appearances we ju Ign that most people nre
destined to be disappointed. According
to yesterday afternoon's weather bulletin
the lowest temperature in that section of
country which usually governs tho temper
ature here, was twelve degrees above zero,
and tho nest lowest was thirty-two degrees.
Rain whs reported from Chattanooga, Cin
cinnati, Louisville, Memphis, Nashville,
Pittsburg, aud Vicksburg, and here tho
rainfall during the twenty-four hours end
ing at tho time tho bulletin was issued
was three one hundredth's of au iuch. At
twelve of the fifteen points in this section
f country reported from, tho sky was
cloudy or raiuy, at only three it was clear.
But tho weather is a very capricious thing
and it may take a turn more consistent
with the season and the popular desire.

"To correct these wrong iniprmsi hi?, an 1
spread about the truth, is one of tlu main
objects of this organization.
t When this is properly done, ( nr vacant
lands will find a ready market; sn 1 we see
no reason why S' urU-rn I:liii"is should not
move lorwaro in a propcrtm a condition
as the reniaind'-r of our noljle state."
The objects of the corporation nre most
comraeu labie. Southern Illinois has
trrand resources that ar being overlooked
because not known, aad thousan Is of
people aro seeking homis on tho etciilo
plains of the far west, or in the iroz m re
gions of tho ixtreme n .rth , w hen comfort
able competency end even luxury are w ithin
their gri-p in siu'hern Illinois, in tho
midst of a fertile s ot and under congenial
skies. That section has vast bodies of
cheap lands, immense forests of excellent
timber, inexhaustible supplies of coal, iron,
lead ami building rock, aud is the proper
theatre for the employment nf a much lar
ger population than it now contains. We
trust tho effort put forth by these leading
citizens of the counties mentioned will
eventuate in much good, and furnish an
examplo which the citizen of other coun
ties of southern Illinois will imitate.
