Tho first treight train passing over
the Texas and St. Louis railway was com
posed ot 40 car?, each of which contained
80 barrels ot salt. Each barrel weighed
300 pounds, so that the load carried by the
entire train weighed 900,000 pounds in the
aggregate, or 480 tons. Such a train on a
new road was quite a useful ornament.
A bachelor who was tired of single

not yet, however, made estimates upon the

the amount of filling to bo done.
A neat little race occurred yesterday
afternoon, between the steamers W. B.
Duncan mi l (Jus Fowler, beginning from a
point about opposite Twentieth street to
opposite Springfield block. The boats were
nearly even at the start, but the Fowler lost
slowly as she came and was about one-
third of her length behind when she slack
ed up to land. The Duncan was loaded
with a train of freight cars for Bird's Point.
In order to prevent pigeons from
roosting in the belfry of the Arab engine
house, wire screens have been put up be
fore all the openings. The first night after
the screens were up the igeons would at
tempt to take their accustomed roosta and,
flying against the wires, would break their
necks and drop onto the roof dead. Some
of the Arab boys had pigeon tiu for nl
every meal for two or three dnyg in succes
sion. The following is from the monthly re

A collision occurred yesterday morn

St. Louis and Cuiro train aud a train com
ing up the avenue on tho Wabash road
The former started while the latter was run
ningover tho crossing and the engine struct
a flat-car, throwing it from tho track, but in
doing so was itself thrown over on its side
and considerably damaged. Tim wreck
was cleared up as soon as possible, but tho
train had to be abandoned for the day.
The Illinois Central company brought
down six car loads of dry clay yesterday, to
be used in tilling up the cavity between tho
company's track on Ohio levee abovo
Twelfth street, and the city's stone wall that
is being rapidly rebuilt and is nearly finhh

interests of this corporation were originally
confined to the limits of IMinois, but it has
been so extended that it now reaches from
the Missouri to the Mexican sea. For many
years of its greatest activity it has been un
der the presidency of W. Iv. Ackerman, who
now retires from the executive office, possi
bly to a-surne the direction of its monetary
affairs at New York. It is reported in the
Times that the directors at their August
meeting will select tor the vicancy caused
by Mr. Ackerman's withdrawal either Mr.
Clarke, who has been the manager of tho
New Orleans line, or Mr. Joseph F. Tucker,
the present traffic nfanager. These gentle
men have grown up with the corporation
and are thoroughly imbued with its policy
of fair dealing with the public, aud stock

while greatly to bo regretted, will have less
significance if the succession fall to either
of the genilemen named."
The curtair has fallen once more upon
one of tho Argus' interesting performances,
For some time back that paper has been en
ter! lining its realers with exhibitions from
"Life on the Plains," giving practical illus
trations of the wild religious ceremonies
indulged iu by the noble red man. As a
substitute for the red man's crude concep
tion ol the evil spirit, the Argus has con
jure 1 up a set of frightful monsters from
its own silly little brain, arrayed them in
the Linegar bills, presented them to the
public as the legitimate off spring of tbo
I miners of the Linegar bills; and then has
gone oir into a horrid war dance, In which
it made a most amusing exhibition of itself,
by facial griumces denoting abjert fear, by
bodily contortions not at all graceful and by
vocal erruptious not at all musical. Tho
farce always ended, as such things always
do and must do in order to leave tho audi
ence in good humor, in the annihilation of
tho evil one, and tbo performance would
conclude with a recitation of bin majesty's
obituary. Last evening, for tbo second or
third time,tho Argui vanquished tho street
filling monster of its owu creation pro
nounced iiis obituary as confidently and
solemnly as it had done several tlmra be
fore. How long it will bo now before tho
troublesome spirit again appears and is
once more promptly slaughtered with all
duo ceremony and declared to bo dead by
tho Argus, remains to ho seen. In tho mean
timo the sentiment in favor of gradually
raising tho city beyond the flood lino is
Blowly but surely gaining ground among
mo property owners of the city and the
preparatiocs for giving tho matter a final
boost that will inaugurate active measures
for carrying out the plan of the authors
and supporters of Mr. Linogar's bills, will
soon bo perfected,
Here are several things we could not
see until last eveuing:-We could not seo
anything very objectionable in tho attempt
oi any man to ruu a newspaper and
country Hotel" at the same time. We
could uot see, in a inure assumption that
any man was guilty of such an attempt, any
justification, nor yet an excuse, for an im
pertinent manifestation of concern in such
a man's business a concern that showed it
self in unkind, uncalled for aud uutruthfu
publications regarding tho said "country
Hotel. But last evening our mental pow
ers and our sense of right and wrong were
quickened, and we now seo very plainly
where before we were blind. We see that
we are devincly constituted keeper of any
neighbor who is "running a daily newspa
per, and "who we judge also, by the inter
est he manifests in one, is also trying to ruu
a country hotel." Wo see tho utter wicked
ness of an attempt to run a newspaper and
country hotel" at the same time; we see
that any neighbor of ours "cauuot gtvu tho
requisite attention to each to make both
pay ;" wo see our great responsibility in
such neighbor's affairs.snd we admit that we
would bediielcct in duty if, believing any
neighbor to be engaged in uch sinful prac
tices, we failed to use adequate means, un-
lair means u necessary, to induce such
neighbor to return to the straight aud nar

The council committee, appointed some
time ago to select and recommeud a new
council chamber and city offices, did not
report at the last meeting of the council,
because ono member was not yet satisfied
that the conclusion arrived at by the other
membeis was all for the best, and refused
to sign the report. The committee there
fore holds over until the next meeting of
the council. All but one of the committee
are in favor of recommending the old Bul
letin building as tho most convenient and
in every way tho best building tor the pur-
ises nnenuen, aiMiuc committee has some
very strong points to support its judgment
in the premises, the strongest point is
perhaps one ol economy. At present the
city pays monthly $10 for tho use of the
council chamber; $12 50 for the use of
police headquarters; $4.50 for astore room;
$9 lor two telephones a total of $31 per
month, or $372 per year. If the council
rents the first floor of Tuk Bulletin build
ing, or, rather the south side of it, and a
portion of the lower floor of the building
in the rear ot it, it will save the rent of a
store-ootu and can dispense with one tele-
phono. Its expenses will then be, for the
same purposes as enumerated above $20
per mouth for rent of house and $4 00 per
month for rent of one telephone $283 per
annum or a saving of $;4. Besides this
there might be a saving in fuel aud gas
during the winter months. But the new
location has other points in its favor. The
council would bavo a comfortable room,
centrally si'uatel and easily accessable;
the clerk would have a cool, pleasant oflice,
where he could bu reached by those having
business with him, without climbing up a
pile of lumber twenty or thirty feet high
a cosy little office, from which he could see
everybody and in which everybody could
see him. Furthermore, the neighborhood
is a very moral neighborhood, to which fact
we can confidently testify, and which is not
nearly so much the case where tho council
now holds forth. This latter is a very im
portant consideration; it is important that
the city fathers, but particularly tho city
clerk, should be far removed from sin aud
its allurements, and there are few places in
the city where this noble object would be
more completely attained than in the
whilom abode of Tub Bulletin and its
force of moral prodigies.
