ATTENTION, SIR KNIGIITS.—Regular conclave of Kenneth Commandery, U. D., next Monday evening, July 8tli, at 7:30 o'clock. Per order of E. C. E. W. CONABLE, C. G. THE merchants in lower Main street are adorning the fronts of their stores with new coats of paint, much improving them in appearance. No town in Iowa has better looking business streets than Independence. "LEMO! lemo! lemonade! at five a two for five!" etc., etc., assailed our ears at every turn, yesterday, and, as we overheard a rural swain remark to his sweetheart, "Cheap enough if a feller only had the nickel!" WE call attention to the advertise ment in another column of Mr. Iekel, of boots and shoes. He is also agent for the Singer Sewing Machine, one of the best machines made. Parties desiring anything in his line would do well to patronize him. It is said that the Iowa Division of the Illi nois Central railroad consumes 2,000 cords of wood and 700,000 tons of coal, annually.—Con Hcrvative. Probably our brother means to be un derstood that the locomotives consum ed the above amount of fuel. "Noth ing like having things all correct," you know. GREAT ATTRACTION.—E. V.

JUDGE TABOR, 4th Auditor of the Treasury Department at Washington, has arrived in this city for a brief vaca tion. He expects to resign his office and enter the drug business in this city, in a few months. We understand he would have resigned ere this, but for the Dem ocratic investigation. He does not pro pose to leave the ship while the firing is going on. a OUR good friend, Tim. Crynes former ly a dextrous "goose" manipulator at Wm. Few's Merchant Tailoring Hall, has rented the Burlington House on the west side, and proposes henceforth to emulate the example of Kimball of Jes up—"keep tavern." Tim. has put a stock of groceries in the house to ac commodate those living in that vicinity. We think he will keep a good house and know he will make the jolliest of land lords. —0 THE FOURTH. Hew We Otoerved the IMf. The celebration of the 102nd anniver sary of our National Independence passed off in this city, yesterday, suc cessfully, barring a few such unavoid ables as dust, heat and a few fights, ac cidents, &c. The attendance of military was not as large as was anticipated, but the companies here gave good exhibi tions of their efficiency in the drill, and we think the crowd was .satisfied with it. The Guards of this city was the on ly company competing for the infantry prizes, and they were awarded the first premium, $50. The Jesup Guards were here but would not drill, notwithstand ing, being the only company present be sides Co. H., they were insured the sec ond prize. Two cavalry companies were present, one of this city and the other from Rowley. The first prize, $50, was awarded to Capt. Holman's company. No other prize was offered for this drill, but the Rowley company, for the excel lent manner in which they performed the maneuvres, was awarded the second prize offered to infantry campanies, $30. There being but one Steamer and one hand engine entered for trial, each was awarded $50. At the conclusion of the military drilling came the athletic sports and races. The first was a foot •ice, best two in three, for a purse of $5. This race was won by a young man in three heats. The next was a wheel barrow race, single dash, for a purse of $5. Considerable sport was extracted by the crowd from this race, the com petitors being blindfolded. One fellow ran into the crowd and frightened a team so that they ran away, throwing the occupants out upon the ground and smashing the vehicle—a light-Democrat wagon—all to pieces. This also fright ened another team so that they perform ed exactly the same feat. Nobody was hurt, however, and the "sport" went on. The next was a sack race for a purse of $5, and then followed the last race, which was for the pig. It was caught before it had made two jumps, by two eager-eyed fellows, who bore it off in triumph. The crowd then came back to Main street to*witness an exhibition by the fire boys. The street was clear ed, a fire kindled in the steamer, the fire alarm rung, and down the street came the apparatus at a tremendous speed, the hose cart drawn by the boys and the steamer by a team. They set the machine on the east side of the river just above the dam, and in six minutes from the first tap of the bell the boys had 700 feet of hose stretched, and the pipe attached, ready for business. While the steamer was coming down the street the grate dropped out, making some de lay, else they would have had water be fore the hose was ready. There was 15 pounds of steam up when the machine reached the river. The Cataract hand engine came down more leisurely and did some good work. The exercises of the day were finish ed by two grand balls in the evening, one at the Opera House and tie other by the Guards at their armory. SPORTSMEN—Your attention is called to Sec. 2 Chap. 156, of the laws of the 14th General Assembly: It shall be uulawfal for any person within this State to shoot or kill any pinnated grouse or prairie chicken, be tween the 1st day of December and the 1st day of September next following. Any woodcock between the 1st day of January and the 10th day of July. Any buffed grouse or pheasant, wild turkey or quail, between the 1st day of January and the 1st day of October. Any wild duck or snipe, goose or brant, between the 1st day of May and the 15th day of August." Etc., etc. At the last regular meeting of the In dependence Shooting Association, a res olution was passed offering a reward of five dollars for any information leading to the conviction of any persons viola ting this act. We trust that farmers will warn off all parties that attempt to shoot in vio lation of the above law, and not hesi tate to give information against them, so that the game may be protected, and the laws may be enforced. E. L. Ci RIUER, President. C. P. LKARY, Secretary. THE County Auditor has received for sale and distribution the Laws of last winter's session of our State Legisla ture. Only county officers. Justices of the Peace, Township Clerks and Mayors are now supplied with copies without cost, and they must deliver the same to their successors in office. Township trustees, members of city and town councils, constables and assessors desir ing copies, can now obtain them on the same terms as private citizens, viz: at the rate of fifty cents per copy. When one remembers that there are one hun dred counties in the State, every county containing from twelve to sixteen town ships, and each township entitled to two constables, one assessor and three trus tees, it will be seen that no small savins results to the State from a change of the law which formerly supplied those officers and members of city councils with session laws at State expense. BRO. BranicK, of the Postville lie view, is disposed to attach blame to the post office in this city on account of not receiving his mails regularly during the recent break on the B., C. R. & N. R. R. It may console him to know that the mails for Postville during the greater portion of the time that the railroad was out of repair, were not sent north, but east, to reach the most available route to that place. For two or three days before the break was actually re paired, word would come to the post of fice here from the railway clerks, that the trains would go through "to-mor row," but when to-morrow came, there was further delay. By this means, two or three days' mails accumulated at this office, which but for the expecta tion that they would reach Postville earlier by the regular route, would have been sent eastward also. IN the West Union (hwttcH report of the Greenback Congressional Con vention at that place last week we find the following: Hasner. of Independence, who had been on "deck" all the time Hammer wus "at bat." Dually got the floor, making a very pretty lit tle speech, the burden of which was. nominate somebody. Buchanan, he says, will east 1400 G. THE Sportsmen's Association of this city have a card in another part of this issue, which we hope all our farmer will observe and remember. Hunters tramping through their fields and tread ing down their grass are as great a nui sance to thein—perhaps greater—as to anyone else. They may now have a remedy for this wanton disregard of their property. They may be assured that the Afsociation will promptly pros ecute such parties to the full extent of the law, it' the fanners will file the in fnTmr^nn B. votes this fall. That puts us in mind of the story once told in a Congressional convention by Judge Murdock. Hasner undoubt edly felt better when he got that speech off his—mind. He has been rehearsing it, or something similar, for the past month, and for our part we feel truly grateful that he has consented to place the figures at 1400. Hasner is an ora tor, but is not gifted in prophecy. Southern outrages are put to shame by an event which ought to ^re the heart of everv true northerner in Amer ica. The goddess of Liberty was stung by a bumble bee at Independence on Xfecorjition Pny—McGregor News. e s o n a Harry Palmer was in tlie efty last Tuesday. F. L. Sherwood and family, of Cedar Rapids, arrived in the city last Tuesday to remain over the 4th. Mr. Andrew Bifock, of Council Bluffs, is visiting at the house of his sister, Mrs. F. D. Jackson, in this city. Miss Carrie Thomas, of St. Louis, Mo., is a guest at the house of F. D. Jackson Esq., and will remain for a few weeks. Mrs. May Lindner, of Chicago, daugh ter of Mrs. John Hollet, of Independ ence, is making a short visit in the city. Carroll Plummer, of Chicago, son of J. W.

City, has been visiting his friends in Independence this week—the guest of his brother, II. 11. Hunter. "T. L. E." Bishop, Tilden's crazy though redoubtable champion, was in the city last Wednesday, probably mak ing arrangements for another of his edi fying lectures. Mr. Elden, the principal of our city schools, returned yesterday from Iowa Citv, where he has been attending the sessions of the State Normal Institute and the convention of County Superin tendents and Principals. He describes the meetings as of much interest and profit. R. M. Campbell returned home last Tuesday, from Trinity College, Hart ford Conn., having, with that course, finished his schooling. Now that his college days arc over, we hope to see him settle down among us permanently, and not appear to us. as heretofore, in the light of a visitor. J. M. Thrift and Mrs. Sadie Shep herd, of Brooklyn, Cal., father and sis ter of Capt. W. II. Thrift, of this city, are visiting at the home of the latter. The former gentleman, while at Cedar Rapids, on his way this city, received a stroke of paralysis, from which he is at present lying quite low. Capt. Fred C. Merrill, formerly of the firm of Marinus & Merrill, of this city, and now engaged in the lumber business at Paola, Kan., has been in the city this week, visiting old friends and acquaint ances. He is well satisfied with his new home, and reports business brisk. He returns next Monday morning. Oi.'R allusion last week to some inci dents in the criminal career of the dis reputable person who conducts the Peoples Paper of Clermont has brought down upon our heads a most violent and incoherent tirade of insensate trash and bombast, a very headlong torrent of ma lignant assinimity. Of course it carries its own antidote, if that were not al ready furnished by the scandalous rep utation of its author, and it is not nec essary that we defend ourselves against his wild and savage thrusts. With re gard to any mention of his crimes, he is like a hyena at bay: he finds no re source but to strike back viciously and unscrupuously. Any man whose char acter and reputation is not proof against the assaults of such a wart upon human ity, is badly off. is very zealous, is a specimen of As a liar, Goodrich but a bungler. Here his style: I wouldn't hold any man's $100 four or Ave weeks, and then because he did not increase the pile, lose my patience, and with flourish of trumpets and great swelling words make a spread eagle ass of myself, as you did two years ago. In the transaction referred to in the above scoundrelly insinuation, the $100 was returned in the next mail after its receipt, and the answer to the proposi tion was written within half an hour af ter its receipt. In point of fact, Good rich is holding a great deal of money be longing to other men, and they are the parties who Ion since lost patience be cause they could not secure it L. II. WELI.KU, a leading Greenback er of the Fourth District, and aspirant for the nomination for Congress from that party, has purchased an old print ing office in Charles City and proposes to start an organ of the party at Nashua, with that versatile and highly effloresc ent young journalist, C. Eugene Hunt, formerly of the Allocate, of this city, at the helm. An exchange suggests that Weller has the cash and Hunt the ex perience. In a little while it will be wiscy wersey Hunt will have the cash and Weller the experience. T. BRIUIIAM AND LOUISA BISHOP gave two entertainments at the Opera House this week, exposing the decep tion and fraud that abound under the name of spiritualism. The first evening was devoted to a performance in a closed cabinet, of all the feats usually per formed by so-called mediums, and the second evening Mr. Bishop performed the same feats with open cabinet, show ing the audience how easily they may be deceived. Ilis performance consist ed of slate writing, rope tying, &c., and included materialized spirits, that would appear in full view of the audience. HAZLETON CAUCUS.—The Republi cans of Hazleton Township are request ed to meet at the usual place in the vil lage of Hazleton, on Thursday evening July 11, at 7i o'clock, to select dele gates to attend the County Convention, on the 13th, which is to choose delegates to the Republican Congressional and Judicial Conventions.
