The following article, which we take from an ultra Democratic paper, the New York Sun, of the 1 1th Inst., is re spectfully commended to the attention of our Democratic readers, and to all Conservative Ilepublicans. We give the entire article as it appeared iu the Sun : TUa acquittal of Uully in Mississippi I ill the face of Mrs. Clisho)n's clear and positive testimony will exert no little iiillucnco ou tho upproaching Presiden tial election. It is easy to say that it has no more liearing upon national al lairs than the undue postiionciiieiit of the Key. Mr. Haydcn's trial in Connect!- cut. But most ot the northern people uo not look uiMin it in that way. They re gard the bloody outrages at the South, like that by which, Mr. Chisholm died, as prool 1 hat the war is not yet entirely lought out that its victories are not y el complete; and they are naturally appre hensive that it the Democratic party, which includes the former confederates, almost to a man, were to get control ol the executive department of the govern inent, such outrages would increase in iiuiiabcT, nxu that Union men in tho old slave states would liud iile hardly endur able, even If possible. Wc believe the American people, by a Jargc majority, are determined, first and j ore mot t, tUat the fruits of the war shall lie fully Preserved, ami that tuo slave- holding spirit shall never be permitted to rule the nation again, 'lliey care more for this than they do for the cur rency or any question. Hence arises the most formidable dilllcutly in the elec tion of a Democratic candidate. The following is a portion of Mrs. Chisholm's testimony: "When I got in I found that Johnny was dead.

When we got to the foot of the stairs we were stopped by the erating door. Here Uully had a gun )ointcd through the grate, and I thought ic was going'to shoot me; but he turned the barrel back nnd forth to aim at my husband. I cried out to Mr. Chisholm, 'Itiwn!' My daughter threw her arms alsmt her father's neck, and cried out, 'Have you not had blood enough for one day ? if you want more take mine, and spare my precious papa.' Mr. Gully turned tho gun again and shot her in the arm, breaking her brace let, ami driving the crushed edges mto her arms.

It was just large enough to have all the ilisailvatitges aiid none of the comforts of country or town. There were two or three one-horse stores, where you could iiiy anything from a Imx of Ayer's pills to a hay rake, provided the proprietor was not expecting some in of the par tit ular article you wanted. There was a. oue-horse livery stable, where by wait ing to have an animal shod or !erliaps to have a tire put on a wheel of the vehicle, and by answering or ignoring various questions as to your residence, business, etc., you could sometimes obtain a one-horse rig, but after starting on your journey you would b apt to think that no other liviug creature was slandered as much as the snail. Hut with all its oue-horse concerns Mcarston possessed what few small ami many large towns did not a good hotel. Any -one stopping over night at the Home would discover that some one in the kitchen kuew how to cook, and that when they retired to a clean neat room and good bed they would have nothing but their own thoughts or dreams for company during the night. The guest could see with half an eye that Mrs. Mears run the machine. Although Mr. in the allairs of the house. The old gentleman m-rood to be used to this state of things and did not kick up a row, as some men do, but simply held uilllsulf above M 8Uwll matter8. jr. Mears had not for years done anything to support his family, except to deal in religious books, and owing to the de graded literary taste of the natives, his business always kept him in debt, except when Mrs. Mears kindly made a tlona- tion to quiet the publishers. Hail he livw, v(.r ,, ,. ,ni,ri.t lm I . . . wu "o""- this hardened age he was only called at best Rrother Mears, and by some of the more tk.,)raved peo,le he Wtl9 ofteu - , - - Pken of as a religious dead beat. Brother Mears hail never succeeded ... . ..... m auyllung during Ins lire, except in getting the town named after himself, and this he surely had a right to do. for he was the first settler there; but, to tell the truth, had he been a single man the town would never have been named Mcarston. Everybody liked Mrs. Mears. She was an industrious business woman and, unlike many other women situated in the same way, she respected her hus- hand, and everybody thought the more of her for doing what they could not io themselves ISrolher Mears had two hobbies that he rode incessantly. One was the belief that the devil w ould soon have full control over the world, and the other was the fear that Miss Mears would marry some one who belonged to tho world. Yes, just as the reader execled, there is young woman in the story. Who could tell a yarn that would interest any one without getting a young girl to help him out? The old folks are very useful, and, to tell the truth, we could not get along without them ; but we cannot get them to fall in love with any oue, and if we could our readers would fall out with us. Miss Mears was not particularly dis- i . i ... ...- I. -..1 uuv , u.-r . 'r mr ue Buc uicu. the "grand liounce," declaring that she never intendci) to lijurry at a)l. IJut Brother Mears, soft as he was in other resjM-cts, knew better than that. Now, about this time two railroads, which competed with each other fifteen miles from Mears ton, entered into a pool con tract, and the road which passed through Mcarston discovered that Mearston would be a splendid point to ship stock from. They accordingly began to erect stock-yards and fit up the depot. Busi ness woke up so in Mcarston that the justice of the peace, who was storekeeper postmaster, express agent, agent for three insurance and one sewing machine companies, found himself so crowded with business that he sent for a nephew, who came on about the time the railroad company sent a young man as agent to Mearston. The two young men en gaged a room and boarded at the Home, ami were soon fast friends. Brother Mears was considerably agitated over the event. He did not like the style of of the young men. They were intelli gent and social, hut whenever he tried to converse on spiritual matters they in variably found some excuse to part com pany with him. In a little while the young men got in the habit of coming in late to meals, and Brother Mears tUoagut thSs was for the sake of getting to talk to Miuuioj and he determined to break the thing up. No matter how late they came, Brother Mears always appear ed at the table with them. This worked well enough for a day or two, and then the young men began to gvt in an hour apart, so that the old gentleman found he would have to give the plan up or at tract too much attention with his appe tite. He soon lounu that .Minnie s con versational qualities, which had always been so dormant in the presence of young ministers, were bein developed to an alarming extent in the presence of the two young men. lie concluded to wait on tlie table himself, buf, after spilling a dish ol soup all over his Sunday clothes and making numerous ridiculous blun tior!, Mrs. Mears discharged him and re- instated Minnie, and again the young men were iu a fair way to get the better of him. "On Sunday morning Brother Mears found a.lxM.k in the young men's room, which on examination he found to lie Tom I'aineVAge of Ieason." He march ed down stairs with the book iu his hand and found both the young men in the setijns room. "Who does- this book belong to?" he demanded. "It is Mr. King's," said the railroad I agent- "I borrowed it of him this, niorn ing; but you can read it to-day. Any time will Uo me. He can have it, can't he, Dick?" "Certainly, certainly," said Dick Brother Mears stood speechless with Indignation. lie had never in all his life been so deeply insulted. As soon as he recovered himself he put the book in the owner's lap, and went straight to Mrs. Mears, and after telling her what he had found and how be had been insulted, he demanded that the two candidates for perdition should at once be turned out of tlie house. This Mrs. Mears refused to do, and lor tho first time in their lives there was a grand blow-np iu th Mears family, which ended by Brother Mears declaring that either the infidels or him. Ik self should leave the house, and Mrs. Mears deci iing in favor of eight dollars a week and me inuucis. Brother Mears packed a valise, took a bundle of hooks and went forth into the cold world. But finding the accomoda tions in the world far ii.ferior to those of the Home, he returned in lou; days, in a dilapidated and humiliated condition. Mrs. Mears received him kindly, and in stead of doing as many would have done, she never referred to the matter iu any way. The infidels still hung up at the Home, aud Minute became more talka tive every day, and Brother Mears could see plainly that she was falling in love with one of them ; but for the life of him he could not tell which and iu fact he did not much care. They were both sober, intelligent and industrious, and Brother Mears often thought what a pity it was that their parents had not educat ed them for the ministry. But the mere fact of their being in possession of that circular direct from His Satanic Majes ty's most energetic agent was enough to set a worse mark on them than Cain was ever branded with. One thing was apparant to all concern ed. Brother Mears's four days' experi ence with the world had taught him to attend strictly to his own business. He had made up his mind to let things go as they would, but come what might he would never again desert his family aud leave them to the care of the cruel world. No, he would not, even if his conscience would allow him to. Everybody in Mearston did not know eyery body's business, but they thought they did, and were just as happy as a community could be. One thing caused some annoyance, however, and that was the real friendship existing between the two competing lovers. Everybody ex pected Dick King and Frank Howard to fall out and have a grand blow-up and perhaps a duel ;' but they did nothing of the kind, and seemed to think more of each other every day, until the joke pass ed around that if Minnie did not soon marry one or the othr of them, they would probably marry each other. As time wore on, Mcarston as a com munity began to get anxious, for the longer the young folks lived the less Mearston knew about the matter. Min nie was hopelessly in love there was no doubt about it ; and so were the young men. Everything proved it, and every body talked about it, and those who were always noted for managing other peo ple's love affairs more successfully than their own, began to prophesy evil. In the mean time the young folks aud Mrs. Mears appeared perfectly happy, and not at all concerned as to how the thing would end. Suddenly, the whole town was thrown iuto a state of excitement, and bad some thing to talk aliout for a week. The justice of the peace hail sold out not his office, oh, no! Millions would not buy that ; but his store, "lichard King S$ Co." now' appeared on the old sign Isiard, and all Mearston said he could never meet the payments; but the justice said there were ndne to meet. Then they saw at once that the "Co.," whoever that was, had furnished the money. But again they were thunderstruck when the justice showed a check for half the amount of the sale, signed by Richard King alone. He declined to tell who the "Co." was, and Mearston knew there was some trick in the matter. The ne w firm began to ship in enormous quanti ties of goods good that ha4 nuyer bT fore appeared in the market at Mearston. Glowing advertisements appeared iu the county newspaper, and King & Co. appeared on every fence board within six miles of town. Everybody expected to have a grand chance to buy goods at a bankrupt sale in Mcarston. It was true that farmers for miles around, wljo had always gone to the city to trade, were now bringing their produce In and buying and selling at King & Co's. But King had hired a clerk from one of the other stores and was paying him more than any other clerk in town was getting, just because he was a favorite with the country people. More than all, King was paying the same for grain as the dealers in the city. King could never make his expenses, anif Jearst,on know u. It was a settled thing now as to who Minnie Mears would marry. No young man would show such energy and in dustry as Dick was showing, unless his love matter had turned out favorably. They began to pity Frank Howard Minnie had only been flirting with him ; everybody knew that now. But how he could still hang on and keep in a good humor with I)ick was a cqnfpjmded mystery. Instead of the mystery gettin g thinner and breaking up entirely, it got thicker every day. They had for some time been taking Minnie out to drive turn about; but now they rigged up a two-seated arrangement, and drove and to all appearances sparked together. "Did ever anybody hear of the like?' was the question Mcarston asketl ; and the answer was, "It beats the Jews." Dick bought ground and began to build a house, and the last shadow of doubt in the matter would have been gone had Frank not bought a neat little house and proceeded to furnish it. Ihua matters stood when everybody Knew mat preparations were going on lor a wedding in the Mears family. Frank hail finished fitting up his house, and everybody knew that Mrs. Mears and Minnie had superintended tlie job. This, with tlie fact that Dick's house was being built and arranged according to Mrs. and Miss Mears's directions, nearly drove Mcarston wild. At last Minnie told all of her girl friends (un der strict promise not to tell) who she was going to marry ; but when the girls got togettier and compared notes, they were forced to the conclusion that Min nle had either lied or was going to mar ry two distinct husbands. One morning Mrs. Teagarden, the city intelligence office, made a complete cir cuit of the town to tell every one that Frank Howard had absconded with Urge amount of railroad funds. She had been passing the depot, and seeing a strange young man in charge she step ped in to see what was going on. While there the strange agent tried to make change with a passenger at tlie ticket window, aud she heard htm say that Howard had taken eyery cent of money with him ; and on being asked where Howard had gone, he shook his head aud said uo one knew. Hundreds of things came to light that had never been made public before. One citizen had heard traveler say that Howard was the very pic ture of a notorious bank robber who es caped from j ail in the tow n he came from and another individual bad once picked EMPORIA, KANSAS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1879. up part of a letter which Frank had torn up. There was enough left of it to make out:" nothing with horses until excit lows over lives watching closely." This was evidently a com munication from a horse-thief, who was being watched by delectives. Before noon rumor hod Frauk Howard escap ing from half a dozen different peniten tiaries. A young man who had stopped over night at the Home some time ago, and Iieeu unable to pay his bill on ac count of his pockctbook having been stolen, was at the time considered a "dead lieat;" but now it was plain where the missing pockctbook had gone.and had the young man liecn in Mearston the citizens might have got up a subscription for him. Dick refused to converse with any oue about the affair, and every one no ticed that he looked anxious and worried. On account of the friendship between the two young men Dick would have fur nished food for scandal as well as Frank ; but he was not gone yet, aud it was not safe to serv e him up. In fact, Dick was pitied a good deal for being taken in by Howard. They were glad that Dick hail not been nabbed by him, and it was lucky that no oue else was, except the railroad. Such was the gossip of Mearston all that day and the next, until the evening train came in and scared Mearston near ly out of its senses by landing Frank How ard on the platform. There was a love ly young girl with him who resembled him so much that any one could easily see she was his sister. Before the cou ple reached the Home Mrs. Teagarden was making another circuit ot the town, calling every one's attention to the fact that she had not said that Howard had run off, but that the new operator said he had gone and taken all the change with hnn. Before sundown there was not a single person in Mcarston who ever be lieved Howard to lie a thief. The next afternoon a boy was employ ed by the Mears family to deliver invita tions to Minnie Mears's wedding. Every body knew- now how the matter stood. Dick had taken Mrs. Teagarden into his confidence, anil had even shown her his wedding suit.. Frank aud his sister were going with them on their wedding tour. Airs. Teagarden promised Dick faithfully that she would not tell a liv- ng soul; nevertheless all Mearston kiiuw all that Dick had told her. and more, too, in less than an hour. When the hour appointed for the marriage ceremony to take place arrived, the Mears mansion was filled with company, all anxious to see how Frank would stand his disappointment. There was a noise of feet on the stairs ; the hall door opened, aud Frauk and his sister came iu, followed by Dick and Minnie. Just as the justice took up his position, there was a stir among the young folks. They appeared to get mixed, antl changed puces Willi each other; but the justice proceeded as though there was no mis take or misunderstanding. But had the ustice taken Mrs. Teagarden and Brother Mears by the nape of the neck and stood them up and married them, he would not have surprised the company more than he did, for when heconcluded the ceremony Dick Kinir anil Miss Howard were man and wife, and Minnie Mears had changed to Mrs. Howard Mrs. Teagarden had to rush out into the fresh air before she could collect herself enough to wish the happy young folks mucu joy. when the contusion was oyer trH volunteered tq dispel the burden of curiosity which he knew was onsuming the company. -My menus," ne sain, "when my mother died, lather sent my sister to a boarding school, and being a minister himself he determined that I should study for the ministry. I was placed in a school for that purpose, and of course my sister anu I did exactly what our father did not want us to do. Annie fell in love, and I ran off with a circus show. I did not find the world as nice as I im agined it was by any means. I wanted to go home, Oh, so bad (Brother Mears mopped his countenance), and finally mustered courage enough to go. My father forgave me and promised if I would break up Annie's love aff'iir, I neeii nqt inane a preacher of myself. tried to do so ; but Annie taught me the most valuable lesson I have ever learn ed to attend to my own business. (Mrs, Teagarden coughed.) Father had noth ing against Anuie's lover except that he was a boy of the world, and not inclined to be religious. When I came to Mears ton I had never seen Annie's lover. When I got acquainted with Dick, I did not blame Annie for liking him. From that on, I don't think a girl ever carried on as extensive a correspondence with their brother as Annie did with me. About once a month I received a letter from her enclosed in a white envelope. These I opened myself; they were never so lengthy as I knew the ones in buff envelopes were, winch 1 gave to Dick. Well to make a long story short, I received a let ter from father about a week ago saying he was laid up with rheumatism, and I went home on purpose to have my folks come to my wedding. Fattier did not scold as much as I expected he would. Of course he could not come back with me, but consented for Aqie to, ccune and you all know the rest. Now, all we lack to make us completely happy is the good wishes of our parents." There was a pause, and then Brother Mears got up and gave Frank his hand When the young folks returned to Mearston from their wedding tour, the old sign of King & Co. was changed to read "King & Howard," and when month or two later the Iiev. William Howard visited his truant children at Mearston, he found the firm doing such a prospermia business that he thoueht providence must certainly have had some. thing todo with the w hole affair, and after all it did not matter so much what per sons pretended to believe as what they Mr. Kassam's excavations on the Ma jelibi mound, in Babylon, have proved mm. iuis was me sue oi the famous hanging gardens, fur in its ruins he louna wells aqueducts, and ponderous masses of stone, all proving that the building hatl been erected, as the Greek writers say. to imitate mountain scenery.

John aiuart Mill. JAMES REDPATH. It is a sad coincident that James Red- path, who was so closely identified with the Geary days in Kansas, should, just at the moment when that state was cele brating its continued eace and prosper ity, disappear mysteriously.

During the war of the rebellion lieu path was a newspaper correspondent, and it is a notable tact in his record that he entered Charleston, C, witn the first Union troops, lie remained in Charleston to organize schools for the negroes, for Redpath was a consistent friend of the black through all things. Two months after Charles ton fell, he marched the colored children of the city through its principal streets, himself on horseback at their beau. Stopping before the Charleston Hotel, from whose broad balconies the leaders of the reliellion had proclaimed the first open act of treason, and placing himself upon the very step where stood the liber ty Dole of the South, he crave the word of command and hundreds of little black throats rent the air with the chorus of John Brown." He gave a dinner in Charleston to which he invited all the prominent colored men of the city, and with such of the Union officers and cor respondents as were brave enough to ac cept the invitation, sat down to the table wiiu them, it was a daring thing to do at that time and in that place.

There has licen so much loose talk about the total number of eggs a hen is capable of laying, and her yearly yield under rainy good treatment, mat it is a satisfact'nui tq (vu.ue across something iM-yond guesswork or mere inference on the matter. The foundation of science niHundn observation, and when a scientist publishes a statement, it is pre sumable that it is based on this founda tion. Its accuracy, too, is confirmed, if it is quoted wiui approval by otner men with wide experience and knowledge on the subject involved in it. Now, Geye lin says, and Prof. Miles in his excellent r.ork on stocK breeding, quotes mm with approval : "It has been ascertain ed that the ovarium of a fowl is com posed of 000 ovales or eggs ; therefore a hen, during the whole of her life, cannot possibly lay more than 600, which, in a uatural course are distributed over nine years in the following proportions. t year after birth S J SQ 3.1 " .......

Much has been said of late of the character of the reading of our youth who have access to public libraries and of tlie large proportion of novels and fictitious literature that they 'select. It is a serious Question whether it is a boon to give them the unrestricted freedom of our circulating libraries. Aaa u is aiso a question whether parents and teachers and guardians and librarians pay suffi cient attention to the character of the literature in which they Indulse. Id England they are turning more attention to this point. An experiment has been going forward in Manchester for over a vear that uiieht well be imitated here. In two of the free libraries they provide separate rooms for juvenile readers, and with a ludicious selection of such books as are attractive to boys, including works on popular science, travels, his tory, and biography, adventure, and fiction. They are encouraged to visit these rooms, and are advised in the selection of books. The result is an average attendance in one of these libra ries of 150 each evening, and of 300 in the other, and so greatly have they lie- come interested in the bnsht antl in. structive words provided for them that the amount of lit-tion read bv them is far less than in the average of other li braries, lieine only about 34 her cent. There is surely a hint here that mav well be followed by the friends of our boys in connection with our public libra ries. TELEGRAPHIC. St. Louis Exposition. St. Locis. Oct. 1. lhe Itockford.

They were about to murder Agent Sleeker, but Low rey prevailed on them them not to com mit the deed. Meeker told Lowrcy that he attempted to leave the agency with is family, but was prevented by the ln ians;that the Indians signified their readiness for war, and seemed anxious tor the approach ot the troops. They then made another attempt to kill Meek er and fire the buildings, but were a sec ond time prevailed upon to desist. Low- rey then attempted to return to the command, but was informed that he must remain, but after giving them a numlier of assurances ot his iieaceable mission he was allowed to depart, but as accompanied by about thirty war riors, who rode with him a numlier of miles and then left. Lowrey arrived at the command, then near Milk creek, on the evening of the 2Nth, and gave Maj. hornburgh the aliove accouuu The next morning, the 29th, the com mand advanced under the guidance of Joe Rankin, who is well acquainted with the country. About nine o'clock in the morning Rankin discovered fresh Indian signs, and having arrived at a conon through which the road passed, and which would anord an excellent opportunity for an ambush, he led the command around over the hill and over an old trail well known to him. By this movement he saved the lives of the command, for on arriving on the top of the hill he saw the Indians in ambush, ou either side ot the canon through which the road pas sed. Thornburirh formed his men in line and awaited an attack. He was re peatedly urged to fire ou the Indians, but refused" to do so, saying hisorders would not lustily an attack., two Indians now rode up to within one hundred yards, dismounted, anil with savage yells, tired, shooting Capt.

Hayford, postmaster of Laramie City, and the editor of tlie Laramie Sentinel, two cooks and an escort oi eight soldiers, are with the beleagured troops on &lHk river. The party started first for the North Park, but turned aside on the warning of the settlers" that the Ltes were in arms, and then went to Elk mountain. The Indians were again too thick, and the party joined Thornburgh's command just as the hunting party passed them on their way to tue ran roan, wno gave them information. Two freighters named Kinney anil Gardner, who recently were engaged in hauling Capt. Dodd's companies to to Steamboat Springs, from Middle Park, arrived here from North Park this morn ing. They report seeing Iresh Indian signs through, the Park and meta young Arapahoe buck, who told them that the Arapahocs had joined the Utes lor the purpose of driving the colored soldiers 'apt. Dodge's com pony out of the Park. They think the Indians were aliout to to proceed to Steamboat Springs to at tack Dodge, when Thornburgh's ap proach attracted their attention and they attacked him instead. Denver, Oct 3. The southern Ulea are mostly peaceable. The discontented ones are supposed to lie with the band that attacked Thornburgh.

Settlements hereafter can not lie made as rapidly ns heretofore, lie cause of the great numlier of cases in which there is no title to the nrrc-ir which must le examined in search for those iu which there is a title. It is stated for the information of all pensioners who believe themselves en titled to arrears, and who do not receive notice of the settlement of their claims ither by allowance or rejection by November 1st, that they can hasten a settlement by writing a letter to the office giving again the numlier of their pension ccrtihcates and their present postollice addresses.

The Opinion of Carl Kt-liurz on the l ies. St. Louis, Oct. 3. Secretary Schurz arrived here unexju-cledly this forenoon, and will hasten ou to "Washington to night to look after important matters waiting his attention. It was intended bv a number of German societies and citizens generally to give him a formal reception, but the necessity tor his im mediate return to Washington has com pelled the postiKinement ot the compli ment until some lulure time. When asked by a Post-Dispatch reporter what he thought ot the outbreak by the tte Indians in t'olorado, he replied that he knew nothing aliout it except what he had seen in the newspapers, and when asked if it was not by the failure of the government to pay them money past due, he said, "rso. jur. -Meeker is agent lor lhe Lte reservation, and we have the fullest confidence in him. I liclicve he lias Ih-cii entirely honest with the Indians under his charge. 1 think the trouble arose from the encroachment of the white set- tiers and especially the miners, who were prospecting for gold and silver mines. 1 he Indians saw they were gradually losing their reservation anil they grew desperate about it. lhe ap pearance oi tlie soldiers was tne signal for an outbreak, aud the country knows the result." When quest ioncd us to what he thought of the condition ol the Indians generally he replied: "lam well pleased. Many ot them arc making considerable pro gress in civilization. 1 was especially srratified at the Sioux agencies. 1 he only place where there is any trouble is in the Lte country, ami that arises lroni the causes 1 mentioned and not from any lock of good faith on the part of tl government." No Tidings from the Lust Balloonist. St. Louis, Octolier3. It having been announced that the balloon in whicl Prof. Wise and Mr. Burr left here last Sunday was old, unsound anil perhaps rot- ten.and that in conseouencc ot this it was likely that some serious mishap may have occured to the aeronauts, James F. Dow ney, son-in-law ot jur. Wise, who resides at Louisiana, Missouri, the home of the Professor, denies these assertions and states that tlie "Pathfinder" was an en tirely new balloon and bad never been used liefore and was one of the best eve made. Mr. Downey advances no theory as to what has become ot lhe voyagers but says if they are lost it is not because the balloon was old or rotten or the net ting weak, nor liecatise there was. not enough gas in the globe. The Globe-Democrat correspondent at Bunker Hill. Ills., aliout thirty-two milt northeast from here, writes that he saw Wise's balloon pass there at unit half-past six o'clock, Sunday evening. From tin point the balloon took a course almost cii rectly north, and was s-cn later in the eve ning aliout ten miles nw.-iy. lict ween Bunker II ill ami Carlmvill there is a very w ide ami rugged region fifteen or twenty miles in extent, know as Macoupin Creek Bottom, heavily tin bored and almost uninhabited.
