"The river is to high now at Cairo that
an earnest prayer Is sent up there for a
continued calm. A little whirllgust of a
breeze from the right direction would
throw the Mississippi Into the town."
The rlrer at this point has often been
higher than It is, and it would take a hun
dred whlrligusts of breczo acting together
as a hurricane to throw the Mississippi
into Cairo.
The Illinois penitentiary commission

twenty per cent, of the salaries and talis
hard on a class ol men whose wages
were not princely before they were re
duced. The board of commissioners
have not reduced their own salaries,
a matter that gives this exhibition of
economy as to the salaries of tmplovcs
an Inconsistent look.

A few days ago Hon. Win. ,1. Allen
addressed a large assemblage of citizens
at Miirphysboro, and discussed thc issues
01 the day. Thc ImUpemlent, of that
place, informs us that the Judga opened
by a reference to a movement among the
people to throw off the dictation ot thc
political leaders and think for them
selves. Under our system of govern
ment he said, giving expression to a not
iibw but certainly a now too little regarded
Idea, thc public olllccrs aro the servants,
the agents of the people, who hold the
power to apply tho corrective lor'ec to
abuses ol the trusts confided to their
agents by removing them from thc pol

denounced centralization of power and
lauded the benefits of local government.

Vcaia ago, a gentleman by the name ot
Walter L. Newberry Invested largely In
real estate in the city of Chicago. As
the city grew, the property grew in value,
and al the death of Mr. Newberry lulbGS,
he left an estate ol three millions of dol
lars. His immediate heirs were Ids wife
aud two unmarried daughters, mid thu
terms of tho will were as follows: If h
daughter, died without Issue.iinmcdiately
on the decease of .his wife, or Immediately
after the decease of the last surviving one,
if the wife died prior to that event,
the estate was to be equally divided one
half to go to tlm brothers nnd sisters of
the testators aud their heirs, and the
other half to be applied to the founding
of a free public library in that part of
the city of Chicago known as thu North
division. The executors ot tho estate
were .empowered to erect a building, and
luriilsli it with such articles as are
deemed proper and appropriate lor a
library, aud provisions were made for a
permanent fund to be ucd In the care
and increase of the library.
The elder of Mr. Newberry's daughters
died in Europe two years ago, ami the
younger, Miss Julia B. Newberry died
last Tuesday, In.the Wty ot Rome, from
affection of the throat. Thc death of
this young lady makes a public library,
as desired by the terms of .Mr. Newber
ry's will, a fixed fact, the time of its es
tablishment depending entirely on thc
death of Mrs. Newberry, a health,
hearty lady ot fifty-seven years of age,
who has made her home lu Europe for
the last few years, paying occasional
visits to the United States. The estate is
now estimated to be worth nearly ilvo
millions of dollars.
