Fourth of July Celebration !
The proceedings ot the meeting held
in this place, on Saturday evening, last,
to make arrangements for the celebra
tion of the 4th of July, will be found in
-another place. "We hope all our citi
zens, irrespective of party, will take
sufficient interest in the matter to make
it a grand success. The people of An
drew county, we are informed, in days
that are past, have honored themselves
and their country in honoring this day,
and we hope the slumbering fires of pa
triotism will be revived, anil burn again
with the ardor of the days of old. No
other day in the year is so appropriate
for all parties to meet harmoniously on
a platform common to all, and we hope
the occasion will be improved as be
comes good citizens. It has a good ef
fect on society, everybody feels better
for its due observance, and gives great
er faith in the perpetuity of our institu
tions. A second preliminary meeting is to
be held at the Court House on Saturday
night next, for the purpose of complet
ing arrangements, to which all are invi
ted, and which we hope will be gen

E. A. Causon relates that one day
last week while near some bushes on his
place, he found a snake, which he kill

pers lit down on it and devoured it al
most instantly. Several other farmers
tell the same thing.
We can't say we are just exactly sat

much in the papers, and yet they are

A week or two since we published an
article from the Maysville Register to
the effect that the farmers of DcKalb
had united together for the purpose of
resisting the incursions of foreign herd
ers into that county. Since then they
have retracted from their position, the
necessitous condition of the cattle own
ers of the counties desolated by grass
hoppers being so apparent that the mat
ter assumed the shape of charity and
human feeling, anil they now offer no
further resistance. This is but doing as
they should, and is creditable to them ;
but we doubt the propriety and justice
of their action in the first place.
Thursday last. :Jd inst., the day ap
pointed by Governor Hardin for fasting
and prayer to Almighty God that He
would remove the grasshopper
scourge, and restore to the people pros
perity, was not very generally observed
by our business men, though a goodly
portion of our citizens attended on Hi
vine "Worship, and joined in. or sympa
thized with, the solemn exercises. A
jrreat many are disposed to treat very
lightly this matter of calling on God for
assistance in times of alHiction and
trouble, and say that it does no good.
"We believe the truth is otherwise, how
ever inscrutable, to human eyes, may
be the ways of Providence.
Fkom: announcements made in the
St. Joe dailies, it seems that sports of
that city are shortly to have a grand
shooting match. Our readers are doubt
less aware what constitutes these shoot
ing matches. The sport who can kill
the greatest number of birds on the
wing, let loose from a trap one at a
time, is the winner the pettv, contemp
tible hero of the hour. We look upon
this and all kindred bird killing not
onfy as uncalled for by any interest or
good of society, but as a species of
wantonness, cruelty and barbarism de
serving the delectation and contempt of
all right thinking me.; ! It is a crime in
and of itself, without the shadow of
palliation. Birds were created for
nobler and better purposes. Those
loafing sports who indulge in this bru
tal pastime should be made to feel the
full force of the penalties of the law;
and ff there be no law against such pro
ceedings there ought to be, for the cred
it of human nature.
Flsiiin;. Fishing is an interesting
spoi l of childhood, and often pleasantly
and profitably engaged in b- those of
maturer years. In times like the pres
ent, when the count it is devastated by
the grasshoppers, many may spend a
profitable afternoon on the banks of our
largo rivers, which, at this season,
abound in fish, but are deterred from
doing so because an impression prevails
thai it is a violation of the law. Fish
in this market meet with read' sale, at
good prices, and we would like to see
the business encouraged. For the in
formation of such we copy the follow
ing section of the new fish law :
"Sec. 2. No person shall be allowed
to place, erect or maintain, or cause to
be maintained, across an' of the waters
of this State, or in front of the mouth
of any stream emptying into any other
stream, an' seine, not, trammel net.bag
weir, lish-dam, trap or other similar de
vice or obstruction, which shall prevent
the free passage of fish up or down, in
any such water or stream ; nor shall any
person or persons be permitted to use
any such means or devices, for the pur
pose of catching fish in waters solely
upon the premises of other persons,
without the written consent ot such
owner or owners; nor shall any person,
during the months of July ami August
of any year, by means of such device,
catch or take any fish, in any of the wa
ters of this State. Any person who shall
violate the provisions of this section
shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and
upon conviction be fined in any sum
noft exceeding five hundred dollars, and
shall stand committed until the line and
costs of process and trial be paid.
