In Our lady friends are requested to and examine our stock or visiting cards. Thorc was but Ultlo business before the County Court last week except public road matters, and the usual routine. R. A. Trail who was op pointed constablo a few weeks stneo by the County Court, tendered his resign lion to tlio Court lust week, and Juke McDonald was ntipointcd to till the vacancy. Every lady uveds a case of visiting "ards. We bavo a full supply on baud, which will be priutod to order At very low prices. Send in your orders, aud wo will guarautco satis taction. Tho Lincoln County Coal Mining 'oinpany have Just bad some circu lars printed, announcing tfceir readi ness to supply all orders for coal. The Company intend working tho mines in earnest, And hands are now busy getting up and delivering coal. The papers all over the state com iilalu or the drought aad the injury it Is dolug tho corn. Iu this county it U uo better. Farmers from Hurri cane, Monroe, Millwood, Wavcrly, and iu fact all over the county, say their crops are suffering, and the ground is too dry to commence plow ing for wheat. Unless we have rain noon, there will be but a small amount or wheat sown this full. We learn from somo of those pros- Jt that tho plc-nic given by the good miliars last Wednesday, on the road between Auburn and Smith's Mills, wusquito a success. A largo number of Indies and gentleman were present to hear the speccheh and par take of tho hospitablo dinner spread on tho ground. Tho addrossos by Messrs. 11. B. Kills and J. II. Allen were appropriate aud were attent ively listened to. Fain Ktu, Accimknt. Luke Mudd, living on West prairlu, hud his right hand crushed iu a threshing machine one day last week. Tho cylinder bo coming choked, he inserted his hand in (ho rear of it to romovo tho obstruc tion, when it suddenly became loose and caught him, tearing oQ his first linger aud tho third up to the second Joint, and otherwise! mangling and bruising the member. The accident is the mora to be regretted as ho Is the only support of a widowed mother. AN BIM KTTLE' CLUB. We co that many of tho counties of the state have societies of tho old set tlers who meet annually for tho pur poso of relating their experiences of tho early settlement of tho country, and having n pleasant social re-unlon. In Msriou county theso pioneers arc to hold their second annual meeting next month, and extonslvo prepara tions have beou rnado for tho enjoy ment of all who may attend, and a general invitation has been glvon to every old settler in northoast Mis souri aud to the adjacent counties of Illinois. Iu Pike a movement of tho same kind is about to bo inaugurated. We do not see why Lincoln couuty may not have a club of the old settlers. Thero aro many men who ennio here when this county wan a wilderness long before it was organised. These old pioneers could tell many inter esting incidents of the early settlo mcut of the county : of tho war or 1812 with its horrors of Indiana mas sacros, the continued depredations of these savages extondlng principally down to the year 1820, and in somo instancoi until thoy wero removed by Col. Dailey, under authority of the general government, to tho In dian Territory ; and of the "Slicker" war of 1837-40, betweon the regula tors on tho one side and tho counter feiters and horso and cattle thlovcs on tho other. The early history of our county is rich iu incident und adveu turo. Much of It that was worthy of preservation has been lost, and more of It exists only in tho recollection of our older citizens, mi tnem come togothor and give their history and the history or their times to tho pub lie. We suggest that a meeting of this kind be held in this place some timo during tho month or September or October. The citizens or Trov. would give them a fitting receptiou To make the undertaking a success, some energetic, publlc-splritod cltl zen will have to take tho lead in or ganlzlng tho society and soliciting tho co-operation of those who should participate. Dor this purposo we suggest the name of Mr. James D. Drown. BKATII or TMF. HKV. PATRICK Tho city papers glvo tho intelli gence or tho ucatti or mis priest, which occurred on tho Oth or July lust, on tho steamer Franco, threo days out from Now York. lie was on his way to Kuropo to spend a short seasou of recreation, in tho hopo that his health, which had become impaired through tho faithful per formance of his many and arduous duties, might bo restored. He was a native of Cork, Ireland, and camo with his father's family to this coun try in 1839. Ho settled at Potosi, and shortly afterwards entered tho semi nary of tho ordor of tho Congrega tion of tho Missions, at the Barrens near Perry ville. He was ordained in 1846 by Archibald Kcndrick. With tho cxcoptlon or a year's travel in Kuropo and Palestine, ho has sinco this time labored earnestly and suc cessfully In his calling in tho city of St. Louis. Among tho many results or ills work may bo mentioned tho founding of tho largest aud most prosperous parishes in the city, two or threo parochial schools one at a cost of fifty thousand dollars and one convent. He was universally respected for his genuluo christian worth, no loss by thoio of other de nominations than by tho members of his own congregations. Father O'Brien was well known to many of tlio citizcus of this county, his parents having lived hero at ono timo, and hlsjtwo sisters Mrs. L. Flyun and Mrs. Henry T. Mudd-stlll reside here. We have beon obliged to cut off many of our subscribers' nunics owing to their long continued delin quency. We shall coutlnuo the prac tice until wo rid our books entirely of thoso who are lu arrears to us, Justice to ourselves requires us to ttdhero to this course. Wo should like exceedingly well to furnish frou reading to thoso who lire fond of reading our paper but who do not pay for it, but we aro tumble to stand tlio expense. We wish our patrons would remember that it costs some thing to run a nowspapor and tlitit tho cost bus to bo promptly settled by us in cash, and that for this reason, It for uo other, wo should liko to have what Is due us. Pkiibonal. Attorney Dunu made us a pleasant visit last week. Mrs. Morrison and her daughter. Miss Jcannio G., aro visiting friends at this place David Flecner called last week and paid up his subscription. Dr. Prow itt of Loulsvlllo favored us with like call. B. F. Robinson made us a pleasant call, renewed his subscription and left another subscriber. That's tho way wo like to sco our friends do II. Wehrmau, J. M. Reeds, J. 11 iseison ami u. Argent visited our offlco last Friday, aud helped to re pleuish our till by renewing their subscription and paying in advance Our esteemed friend A. M. Thomas or New Hope brightened our sanc tum with his gonial countenance last Thursday. Ho ruports tho yield wheat not as good as was anticipated and the corn suffering for ruin in his section. The judges of tho County Court, A K. Wilson, C. W. Martin mid II. Mudd, called to see our new Jobber at work, and expressed themselves gratified that tho blank stationery for tho use of tho county can bo furnlshod by a homo olfleo. Tho Court was well pleased with our work, aud pro nounced it as good us any they have used, or better. Mrs, AiiiiuM. Orr and her daugh ter, Miss Tilllo McKlbben, who have been here ou a visit for sovcrul weeks, will leave for their home, in St. Louis, to-morrow morning. Miss McKlbben has entirely recovered from the cere brospinal meningitis, with which sho was attacked about Ave months since. Mrs. T. D. Fisher will leave with them for a visit to Burlington, lowu. We have just heard somo of the par ticulars or a caso of attempted suicide, which event occurred somo weeks since in the town or Truxton in this county. Tho circumstances under which tho victim a young lady or Intelligence, good education and ex cellent moral ciiarnctor mado tho rash attempt wero tlio most painful Tho busy, venomous touguo or slan der had directed Its attacks upon her reputation until her reason deserted her. In this condition sho required the constant care or her parents One day sho was missed from tho room by her mother, who uftor a short search found lier in tho well, her body entirely covered by tho water aud her hair just floating on tho sur face. AssUtauco was called aud she was with difficulty rescued from tho position, her hands being tightly wedged in tho interstices of tho stouo wull of tho cistern. Sho was at first thought to bo dead, but was rcsusci tutcd through tho persistent efforts of hor friends, aud her slanderers were saved tho guilt of her murder. A report having obtained credence that II. D. Waltou, Esq., had removed his business office from this place to Wurrcnton, ho desirct. us to say that such is not tho caso. Thnt ho intends to remain in Troy ; office over Dr. East's drug store. Tub Tobacco ukoi This seems to bo a good year for tho tobacco worm. Reports come to us that they are doing great dmnago to this crop thoro being about an average ot threo worms to every stalk, and it will re quire close attention aud industry for our tobacco raisers to ninko anything liko an avcrago crop between the worms aud tho drought. But wo havo somo energetic men in the bus lucss, who aro determined to fight the worms, aud nil such wo doubt not, will bo repaid for their industry Among these is our patron J. K Richards, an energetic young farmer of tho lower part ot tho county Ho has about seven acres or more of this staplo growing, which is doing finely, being from two and a halt to threo feet in height, and tho leaves are well dovoloped. But he has paid close attention to the crop, kept tho soil well stirred about it, and tho worms off, though it kept him busy to do this. Ho expects his crop to avcrago him about ono thousand pounds to tho aero, which will bo ulco little Income and romuncrato him for bis caro aud trouble. Our friend Joe Creech, received a painful Injury last week by being thrown out of a wagon. Ho was sit ting near tbo back end, and was in tho uct of getting out whon tho horses suddenly started, causing him to loso his balanco and fall heavily to tho ground. His right elbow was much bruised, but is now slowly im proving. ) Xo Pi.ack Likr Home. Ono of our incorrigible town boys recently took it into hit head to fight tho battle of life alono, and accordingly last Wednesday morning, shoeless, coatlojs, and almost hatlcss, aud sans money, without warning to his pa- routs, mounted his pony and started tho war path. He mado good timo to Wcntzvlllo, whero ho left his pony In churgoof a small boy, direct ing him to havo his fuu out of the animal for a fow days, as a sort or recompense for taking chargo of lilin, and then to ride lilin out on tlio road tho mill, turn Ids head toward Troy, aud whalo him liko tho "very old mischief, and ho'll go home." Soon tho train camo lumbering by, and Young America secured a scat on tho rear platform of tho sleeping car, and was of)' for the metropolis of tho West. Arriving at St. Louis ho wandered around, and at night made his bed on tho hard rocks near tho Blddlo street depot, which ho says nearly "punched a holo in bis head." Tho next day tho "inner man" was making gnawing demands, and ho succeeded in begging a crust and a cold potato, which checked it for awhile. Concluding that tho battlo of life was u hard one for a boy with out means or friends in a strange land, liko tho prodigal son of old, ho bethought himself or the homo ho had left, tho warm sumptuous meals that wore dally spread out before him, aud tho comfortable beds to rest Ills weary limbs ou at night, and not likitig tho appearance of the city and tho police, ho determined to return home. It was thou ho missed his pony, as bare-rooted bo tramped up tho railroad track. lie says lie walked all the way back to Wonts- vlllc, sleeping out in tho woods Thursday night, aud when ho arrived at that place be found his father, who had started on a hunt for him, ready to rccolve him with opon arms. Our little frlond was delighted to get homo, and expatiates with a sort of regretful delight at what ho went through his hard beds, his hunger, his foot-sore Journey, &c, and will bo quito a hero among somo of his companions for a few days; but if thoy listen attentively to him, we think but few of them will attempt to go through the same experience. no has conciuaca mat mere is no placo like home, and ou the evening of his arrival was congratulating himself on what a nlco sleep ho would have that night. Tho little fellow looks like ho had just rccov ered from a spell of sickness, having lost about sovon pounds in his threo days absence. Boys, better hang to your mother's apron strings, for you will not find any one elso so ready to provide good things for you ; and if you could seo how some of tho little fellows live, who havo to contend with tho world alone, you would nover wish yourself iu their shoes or rather their bore-feet, for thoy sol dom enjoy tho luxury of a pair shoes. Tho Mexico Leader says Miss Jcan nio G. Morrison, formerly or this place, was elocted teacher of music for Hardin College by unanimous voto, at a meeting of tho board of directors on the 14th inst. Her friends hero will be pleased to learn of her succois. Tho Leader nays Miss Jcannio tho following handsome compliment: Miss Morrison Is a graduato of Troy Christian Institute and of tho St. Louis Conservatory of Music, and possesses tho attainment and industry that will mako her a valuable adjunct to tho faculty ot the college We stated week before last that the deputy coltoctor had left the office for several weeks without tho knowledge of tho collector.

Mr, Parker who has a contract near Cave City, assures us tnai no can uo an tuo grauing, rock work and finishing in this county In two months, if tho company wishes It done In that time. Tho company has not yot succeeded in negotiating any of tho first inortgago bonds, but the prcsont work outside of this county is done with tho capital of the construction company, of which the paid up stock is sufficient to iron tho bed to its junction with tho road at Dardenno.
