On last Thursday, between 12 and
1 o'clock the Oldb" river reached the,1
highest point known ta. ihis' genera
ation seventy-one" feet, and three
quarters of an inch at ' which time
it commenced slowly, to -recede, and
up to the present writing (Wednes
day) has fallen thirteen feet, and is
still falling at the rate of . one-half
inch an hour. The damage from
Pittsburg to Cairo, the length of the
Ohitfj can'not: be reveri, roughly esti
mated, as with the receding of the
waier the washing away - and crum
bling down of .bouses commences,
and as most of the towns are' still in
the water, moie or less, it is impos
sible to form any idea of the im
mense damage done by this ' flood.
The damage at Parkersburg, Va., is
estimated at $1,000,000, and this is
only one place. Gallipolis is another
place where the loss will be heavy,
Portsmouth,. 0-i a place of about
15,000, inhabitants, has been entirely
at.the mercy of the flood, it being
located at the mouth of the Scioto
river,, and on ,ery low ground.
Greensupburg, Ky., hasn't a "y
house in it. .. Manchester, O., and
Maysville, Ky.,; both suffer much
Aberdeen, O., had .only six - dry
houses in it. Ripley, O., had fifteen
houses washed away, and has two
thousand homeless people. : Dover,
Ky., is just beginning to get its head
above the water, as it was almost en
tirely submerged. New Richmond
and California, O., and Augusta,
Ky.,. were almost entirely engulfed.
The suffering and damage at Cincinr
nati, Covington and Newport -Ky.,
is too terrible to imagine. ,
From Cincinnati to Cairo the val
ley ia one sea of mad, muddy, rush
ing, water, spreading desolation and
destruction alike to all. Some of the
towns have not yet recovered from
the effect of the flood of 1883, and
ou them the loss.will fall more heav
ily than on the more fortunate ones.
, At Cincinnati, on ; last . Friday
morning,, a three-story brick .build
ing, used as a boarding house, situ
ated; in the flooded district, fell,
kiting. ten people and. wounding six
others. This is only one of the many
cases of loss of lives occasioned by
the flood. . "

Some of ''our exchanges are still
stirring the school book question,

the law requiring the adoption of
text books fcr five years. (Their ob
jections being the creation by its
operations of a sch-ol book monopo
ly, and high priced books as'1 a re
sult. One of our exchanges goes so
far 'as to recommend to the . Gover
nor to convene the legislature for the
express purpose of repealing the five
years'.law. We think before these
gentlemen can justly condemn the
law they ought tp showr that school
books are higher priced under its
operations than they were before we
had any such Iawf and that they are
relatively higher tlian other books of
equal cost in manufacture. As we
have said before, we believe the law
is a good one, and if the people do
not get the best, and,, consequently,
the cheapest books, it is because of
an abuse of the law, and not because
the law: itself is not meritorious.

An Old Paper.
. Through the kindnes-of - B.yF.
Crawley, Esg.,wehave beenpermitted
to examine a copy! of the Missouri
Intelligei;. .T published at Frankjin,
Howard panty, -4April 29, 1823,
which wiiiAoon be - sixty -one "years
old. In size it is eighteen by twenty-four
inches, and Whig in politics ;
is the thirty-ninth number of the
fourth volume, and published by
Nathaniel Patton and John T. Cleve
land., i' 7 "i i '.: M'--
From the Howard county history
we fearn the Intelligencer - was the
first paper printed west of St. Louis.
The press upon which it was printed
was known as the Ramage press a
wooden contrivance with cast iron
bed, joints and platen, and was pre
sented by Colonel Switzler, that old
wheel horse of joarnalism, to the
mercantile library association of
St. Louis in 1858.
The last issue of the Intelligencer
at Franklin was dated June 16, 1826;
thence moved to Fayette, the new
county, seat of Howard county ;
thence to Columbia in 1830, and pub
lished there till 1835, when its name
was changed to the Patriot.
The ownership of the Intelligencer
was frequently changed during
these years, judging from the names
of those associated with it as editors,
we conclude the paper never lack
ed for "brains.
In the copy before us there are
business advertisements. One drug
store advertises every article by
name kept in an establishment of that
sort. There are stray notices, pub
lications of U. S. laws, advertise
ments, of lots for sale, at Jef
ferson City, the State capital, and
the letting of the building of the
stale-house ; also sale of lots at Fay
ette, the new county., seat; foreign
and domestic news is given, but not
a syllabic of local matter. Only two
editorials one on the subject ; of
"Idleness," the other "Foolish Hus
bands," the last-named we reprint
below. ;. . Probably it is just as ; ap
priate now as then :
"If you have any regard for your
happiness, any hope of preserving
fortunes, or restoring . them - after
any disaster, never ladies, marry a
fool ; any husband rather than a fool
With some other husband you may
be unhappy, but with a fool you will
be miserable ; with another hiuband
you may, I sa', be unhappy, but
with a fool vou- must -nay, if he
would, he can not make you easy ;
everything he does is so awkward ;
all he says is so empty ; a woman of
sense can not but be . surfeited and
sick of him many times a day
V hat is more shockins than, for a
woman to bring a handsome, comely
fellow of a husband into company.
and then be obliged to blush for him
every time she hears him speak. To
hear other gentlemen talk sense, and
he be able to say nothing, and so
look like a- food, or hear him; talk
nonsense and be laughed at for
f In the next place there are so
many 6orts of fools, such an infinite
variety of fools, i and so hard it is to
know the worst of the kind, that I
am obliged to say: 4No fools, ladies,
at all; no kind of fools; whether a
man fool, a sober fool, . a , wise fool
or a silly fo ! ; take anything but a
a fool; nay.; be anything be even
an old maid,, the worst of nature's
curses, rather than : take up with a
fool. " T .. :
It is a very cold day when the
Democratic house doesn't knock out
out .three, or .four., million .acres of
land from the iron grasp of the rail
way land barons. The last action is
as follows: "The house committee
on public lands has agreed to report
a bill declaring forfeited the land
grants of the, Ontonagon, and Brule
river, Marquette and. State-line, and
Marquette, Houghton and Ontona
gon . railroads. The rights of cash
and homestead entries are to be pro
tected, preference . being given to
the latter. About 200,000 acres are
included in this forfeiture." .

In the Courier of the 8th inst. I
noticed what Farmer had to say in
reference to the stock law. He ex
presses many objections to it. I do
not like to be contrary but beg to
differ from him about the question
of outside range. He speaks of
many acres of unfenced land in the
bottoms and the benefits accruing
to those who pasture them. Let him
for a moment view the immense body
of tillable lands not bordering on tho
streams, then compare the few, in
number, benefitted by the outside
pasture with the many who have to
toil and spend their substance in
keeping up fences, most all which
could be saved if we had a stock
law. , If he is fond of comparisons
he may compare the cost of fencing
with the benefits of outside range
and see on which side the balance
will fall. Timber is growing scarcer
every year, bringing a correspond
ing additional cost to make fence.
Many of the farms in Chariton coun
ty need new fences and have no tim
ber to make them, except perhaps
enough for posts to use for wire
fences. Under the circumstances
we say give us a general stock law
for the benefit of a large majority of
citizens, and thus live and let live.
