Caterpillar. An army of theo
plunderers secnw to bo on tho move
through Southern Illinois, devouring in
its march leaves, buds, and everything
of a succulent nature. Many gardens in
tbo city and suburbs have been invested
and attacked by them, and much damago
has resulted from itleaves and tender buds
being, in some instances, entirely strip
pod from pear and applo trees. Tho dam
age these seemingly insignificant insects
can do cannot bo readily calculated. They
have been known to ravage fields, gardens
and orchards, in a short space of time, des
troying valuable fruit and all kinds of
vegetables. Many ways and means have
been devised for their destruction. William
Halllday saturated cotton with coal oil,
which ho bound around tho lower part of
the trees, and also built huge fires under
their branches, but uith no effect. Chas.
Thrupp, in order to rid bis trees of the
pests also tried theiu remedies ineffectual
ly, but finally hit upon n mixture which
did the work liko a charm. Ho took from
a pint to a quart of coal oil and mixed it
with warm water, and drenched tho body
of tho infested tree with the mixture.
Tho result was tho small pestiferous
worms folded their tents like tho Arabs
and as silently pas?sd away.

.Meeting of the Aoelely
Tho members of the Southern Illinois
Immigrant Aid Society, as woll a. all
thoso Interested, aro respectfully requeued
to meet In tho Poor Man's Club room, In
Winter's block, on Tuesday ovening, May
2nd., at seven o'clock, sharp, for tho pur
pose of considering the propriety of per
fecting a more permanent organization,
and devising ways and means to carry out
its purposes, if found expcdlont.
While It Is true we havo taxed gunelvcs
to our utmost capacity for railroads, Str.to
and cotmty roads, brldgos and other im
provements, we havo sadly overlookod
the very important Item of encouraging
immigration and wealth, to Improve ami
beautify' our country, and aid ui In
further onlorprlioa. -
It would be superfluous to say that tho
southern portion of our State, (and in par
ticular tho four or five aouthcrn counties,)
for location, soil, timber, rock, nnd otc,
water nnd climate, I not stirpns'cdbyaiy
State In tho Union.
Nature has provided us with every nat
ural advantage ever vouchsafed to any lo
cality. Bounde'd by two of tho most prom
inent rivers on this continent; centralized
by tho Illinois Central rsllroad and other
railroads in progress; timber second to
none; beautiful, clear, gushing springs of
water without number; quarries of finest
lime, sand nnd marble; iron oro sufficient,
if manufactured, to lay a railroad track ten
times around tbo world, twice told; whilo
our rich soil, If properly cultivated, would
produce enough to feed nations.
Owing to our genial climate, there i no
country can excel ours for raising all tho
staples wheat, ryo, oats, .corn .and to
bacco; whllo our fruits and vegetables aro
far In advance of any other-portion of tho
JState and of supcnot.quallty it only re
mains to bring this favorite cvuntry Into
proper cultivation to mako it a second
Eden, minus the forbidden tree.
At first view, many will bo surprised
that this beautiful field of nature has
been so long neglected, whllo, others,
not half as'attractlvo have been cultivated
for the list quarter of a century. But as
this Is foreign to our subject I will dismiss
It now remains for us to say whether
we shall remain pntsivo and grope our way
under tho shadow of our moro prosperous
surroundings; Or shall wo not rather shake
off this incubus, and set our tight on the
hills to iuvito prosperity and wealth.
