According to Inst evening's weather
bulletin tho weather was clear all around

Chattanooga, New Orleans and St. Ptul.
But there was a low barometer in tho north
and northwest, and winds were coining
from a rain producing direction. We will
not guarantee our celebrators clear thirsty
weather all day to-day.
The committee having iu charge tho

From the last report of the state board
of agriculture it appears that the estimated
increase of corn acreage ,over 1882 is three
percent., making the corn area a half mil
lion acruas. The condition indicates only a
medium yield, 10,875,000 bushels less than
tho crop of 1882. In the northern counties
of tho state the percentage of the prospec
tive yield ranges from 70 to 02; in the cen
tral counties the percentage is placed at 80,
or somewhat better than last setson; and in
southern Illinois the outlook is about the
same as last year. The wheat prospect is
discouraging, the yield not promising
more than 10,000,000 bushels in the aggre
gate. Oats are in excellent condition, and
the prospective yield is 100,000,000 bushels.
Rye, flax and barley have fallen off ten
per cent, in acreage. There will he 10,000
acres of Irish potatoes. Severe frosts have
greatly injured the fruit crops, hut apples
and peaches will be a three-fourths crop,
pears, cherries and grapes two-thirds, and
strawberries and blackberries over three
fourths of a full average.
-In a letter from Col. Charles Hamilton,
of the St. Louis and Cairo road, to Civil En
gineer Thrupp, tho Colonel expresses him
self as highly pleased with tho survey and
plats made of tho company's contemplated
new right of-way, prepared by Mr. Thrupp.
Tho Colouel gives the reader of his loiter to
understand that the company has positively
determined to lay its track on tho line last
surveyed by Mr. Thrupp, excepting in so
far as this line turns to tho right in order
to roach tho embankment above tho city
limits, thrown up by tho ' company on the
lino it originally intended to occupy con
trary to the wishes and interests of the
city. Col. Hamilton says the company iu
teuds to abandon this lino entirely and
como down along tho river bank. This, it
will be olmerved, is the very lino tho city
and the Trust Property company wanted tho
railroad company to occupy all along and
against which tho latter has so long and so
obstinately contended. But it is not yet a
settled thing and there may he another
grand flop in ona direction or Hnother be
fore tho matter is finally settled.

Officer McTiguo picked up a white
stranger yesterday afternoon, who was just
drunk enough to be oblivious to what was
going on around him and to be made the
easy victim of any designing thief. Tho
man was even llieii being led along by a
.negro who would have been equal to mott
any act of deviltry. The officer drove the
negro off, and tO"k tho white man to police
headquarters where his money, amounting
to over $20, which lie had previously offered
voluntarily to the officer, was put in tho
chief's safe to be kept until the man should
have become sober enough to take care of
himself. Had it been night, tho man
would certainly have wandered into one of
the delectable dena in "Pinch" and there,
while his "glims" were "doused" in a
drunken sleep, his "boodle" would have
been "pinched," and ho would have came
forth swearing at everybody for not taking
care of him and his pocket-book while he
was "enjoying" himself.
Tho Argus is mistaken in its construc
tion of the new postal law. The law does
not require the detention of mail at tho of
fice where it is mailed until the "entire
I'Ostaoe" shall have been paid, either by
tho sender or by the addressed. This rule
holds good only with reference to mail
upon which less than one full rate, i. e. 3c,
has been paid, and which would, under the
old law, be sent to the dead letter office
without notice either to the sender or ad
dressee. Under the new law, instead of
sending such mail direct to tho dead-letter
office, the postmaster is required to notify
the sender if his card appears upon the en
velope, or tho addressee if such card does
not appear, that such letter or package is
"held for postage." But mail uptin which
one full rate, that is 3c, has been paid,
even though six or nine cents would be re
quired to pay it through to its destination,
will be forwarded just as now and held at
the office of its destination for the amount
of postage still due just as now.
