The orders were not issued from the Adju tant General's olliee until 11:15 i. m., Friday, and the members of the Illinois National Guard were at their homes, and no doubt asleep, yet Capt.

Smith, of Bloomington, arrived with his company at 5:li5, and the Streator and La Salle companies were at Joliet before breakfast. This Is highly creditable to these companies and shows thiit the cfllelency of the Illinois National Guard is to be highly commended. lee cream at the new bakery In Chccver's block, corn er of Main and Court streets. To-day the season opens at Hess's popular bakery, corner of La Sallo and Jefferson streets. In calling the attention of the public to this Important fact it Is needless to add any words of praise or commendation in Its be half. Mr. Hess has been established in litis business for twenty years, and his reputation has extended far beyond the confines of Ot tawa. He does not say that his ice cream is better than that manufactured elsewhere. There is no necessity for his makinir such a statement us his customers invariably make tha- assertion themselves. The ice-cream parlors thrown open to tho public to-day are unquestionably tho finest in La Sallo cour.ty. The room ha recently been relltted and refurnished, newly carpeted and some elegant and costly mirrors added. The location is a pleasant one nnd the establishment will, no doubt be, during the present season, a popular place of resort as It has been in years past. The younger Louis Hess will be found on deck, as polite andattentive to the ladies as of yore, and Is a gentleman worthy to preside over such an cs tabllshment.

Knickerbocker, the editor-in-chief, who died quite suddenly of brain fever at his resl dence In that city on the night of the 8th Inst He was for 38 years connected with the Ilea eon, which he leaves as one of the prosperous and permanent institutions of that city, and a monument to his untlrir.g Industry and per- sistency. Ho was an honest man, of good, bard, common sense, and though not particu larly brilliant or able as a writer, his paper has wielded much and far-reaching influence in the ranks of the Republican party of that vicinity. When Thurlow Weed was editor of the Albany Evening Journal he worked in that office, and in rV came west and located on his father's farm near Earlville, In this county, and the same winter taught the school In that village. In '57 he became connected with the Beacon. He was appo'nted postmaster at Aurora a few days before the expiration of Arthur's administration, and the trouble and worry Incident to the duties of the office, it is said, brought on an attack of brain fever which terminated his life in his 4sth year.

Last Tuesday at 12:40 p. m., Compauy D returned liomo from Lemont, after having been absent on duty 10 days. The citizens of the city on learning that the boys were to ar rive at that time turned out and paraded to the depot, headed by the members of the company to the number of 9, who were al ready here, wltn Fitzgerald's band, to extend a hearty wclcoruo to them. As tho travel, stained and weather-tanned members marched down to the armory they were greeted with applause, and after having repaired to their headquarters and laid aside their weapons of warfare, were given a dinner at iho Clifton which they enjoyed heartily after having sub slsted so long on rations at the camp. In the evening a grand banquet was tendered them by the citizens at the Clifton, at which many of the more promineut people of Ottawa were prcseut. They marched into the dining room of the hotel In single Hie and after having boon seated, Willis's orchestra poured forth the strains of tho "Soldier's Return." The banquet was especially a noteworthy event, not alone on account of its exceptionally line bill of fare but also on account of the many brllllaut sp'-eches, witty hits and laughable sayings of those called upon to speak. Mayor Allen presided and extended to the company a right royal welcome home, lie said that they were boys no longer, but soldiers, and as such had proved and m -quitted. themselves us gentleman and the city of Oltawa was proud of them. He then proposed the health of Co. D which was drank standing. Capt. Hlanch ard replied in a neat little speech. He said that the members of his command had done their duty like men aud that they had rellcct- d credit on their city while away. Tho cap tain concluded with hearty thanks to the citi zens for their expressions of good will tow ards his company. Henry Mayo, on being ailed upon, said that it, unliapily, became necessary to call upon the military power to nforce the civil authority and that this was owing to the mixed class of our population. He said tiiat he understood that some member of an organization in this city had said that they would " boycott" the store In which any members of Co. D were employed unless they were discharged. The soldiers, ho said, had only responded to the call from the state and it was their duty to obey and do their duty. Jas. 11. Eckles was of course, called out, and made one his characteristically eloquent speeches. D. A. Cook was the next speaker. He extolled the gallautry of our home compa- iy und said thut Its conduct on the field enabled tho members to prove their courage. He proposed thut uu honorury membership Le formed and called upon Capt. Blachard for his opinion who responded that that was ex actly what ho had often desired. The project was then put to the members of the company which was responded to by a unanimous aye." The expense of keeping up the or ganization was f'JOO a year and the state paid of that sum 500, leaving the remainder to be furnished by the members of tho company. The honorary membership would give the ocmpany, Capt.Blunchard said, a strong moral backing, and the members would feel that they had the sympathies of the business men If such an arrangement could bo effected and this morul aud financial encouragement was ust what was needed. Messrs. Cook, Snow and Wldiucr were appoiuted a committee to go and see those present, which was done und 45 names were appended to the list of honorary membership of Co. I). During this time Ma jor Widmer was called upon und his speech was loudly applauded. He said that ho was glad the boys had come back without lirinir a shot, which showed splendid discipline, and that they were men of courage und that they showed it by their coolness when surrounded by danger. Hon. Win. Cullen, of the Ottawa Itt-ptMican, was then culled upon and made some solid, sensible remarks. He was fol lowed by Dr. U. F. Dyer, who related his ex perience as an army surgeon in the late war. Ed. Xattinger, of tho Timr, was called upon and testified to having been an eye witness to many scenes in the camp at Lemont, and that the bovs acted as old soldiers and obeyed ev ery order without flinching. The health of the ladies of Ottawa was then proposed by the chair, who called upon D. McDougall for a re sponse, which that gentleman gave in a hap py and eloquent vein. The captain, us a se- iuel to Mr. McD.'s remarks, said tho ladies had not been forgotten while in camp. Or derly Sereeant Hull had rigged tip a post office out of some cigar boxes, and in a few minutes thereafter they were full of letters ull addressed to the ladies. P. M. Bowman was called upon and he said the occasion reminded him of a company he once commanded, called the " Shabbonles." The walking was such that some of them, he believed, had not returned yet. The hit was received with great laughter, it reminding many of the audience of the return or tlie Shabbona base ball club after its disastrous tou- many years ago. Thos. E. MucKinluy and Lester H.Strawn made brief responses Bugler Ackerman.of Co. I), hrtught out Adjt- R. C. Stevens, of the f.7V, by n call on that instrument. He was fearful of a return or his o'd enemy, that accursed neuralgia, and did not dare to muke any extended remarks. However, before sitting down, ho eulogised Capt. Blanchard and said that he was of the right stuff to mako a brave soldier and that one of his style, build and looks could always be relied upou. That was his experience. The speaker was applauded at great length on his remarks. An order was then read by Ord. Sergt. Hull com mar.ding Private J. II. Eckels to report at once at the north door of the dining ball and relieve Comrade McDou gall, who was there In attendance on the ladies. The order was promptly obeyed. The banquet ceremonies ended at midnight with songs from the company and all departed feeling that a highly enjoyable time had been The new "Glove Department," of Scott Bros. ACo's.
