A drunken negro made himself very

A dispatch to Hon. D. T. Linegar of
this city yesterday announced the death the
eight before ot Hon. Sidney Grear, his col
league in the Thirty-third general assembly
of Illinois. Mr. Grear had been seriously
sick for some time with inflamation of the
stomach. He was a young man of more
than ordinary ability and promiseo to be
one of the pillars of southern Illinois Demo
cracy. He was elected last year and
served in the legislature to the entire satis
faction of his constituents.

Aid erman C. N. Hughes returned last
evening from Carbondale, to where be had
gone to attend a meeticg of the trustees of
the Normal action). Nothing of special
importance was done by the board. Work
on the temporary building for the school is
continued, interrupted only by the extreme
cold of yesterday. The building is now
estimated to cost $5,300, all of which the
citizens of Carbondale are trying to raise
among themselves. It is expected that the
building shall be ready by the Jod of Janu
ary when the next term of the school
begins; and it will be done if the weather
does not interfere too much.
General W.T. Clark, special examin
ing agent of the revenue department, ar
rived in the city Tuesday. He spent all of
Tuesday and part of yesterday in a thor
ough examination ot the affairs ot General
W. C. Pavey's office here, and, in conversa
tion with a friend yesterday, he said that
he found everything in a first-class condi
tion in every particular. Gen. Clark ia
quite a figure in the political history ot the
country. He was adjutant-general to Gen.
Mcpherson during the civil war, was mem
ber of congress from a northern district of
Illinoisafterwsrds, was General Raum's
chief clerk in the revenue department and
one of the best that ever held that impor
tant position, was offered the chief clerk
ship of the treasury department oy Secre
tary Folger, but declined it because of bis
friendship for Mr. Raum. But he has now
reason to reget that he did not rccept Sec
retary Folger's offer, for with the advent of
General Rum's successor, he was compell
ed to surrender his chief clerkship in the
revenue office to a Chicsgo man of no ex
perience whatever in the duties of the de
partment, which was another practical il-
lustratian ot Republican civil service re
form ("snivil service deformity," it has been
sppropriately termed.) It may be well to
say, in this connection, that we did not
obtain the ''raw material" for this little
sketch from General Clark himself, who is
apparently entirely satisfied with his lot.
The work on the Ohio rivsr bank be
tween E ghth and Twelfth etreets, begun
some days ago under the direction of Al
derman McHale for the Trust Property
company, is about finished. All the mat
tresses have been sunk with rock and the
bank ia now thoroughly protected. A small
force is still at work putting in a few more
mattresses at the foot of Eighth street, and
this will finish the work on the levee along
the Ohio side of the city. On the Mississip
pi levee men are still at work for the Prop
erty company, and St. Louis and Cairo road
has also a small force engaged in raising
the company's tracks. Henceforth the city
may devote herself entirely to beautifying
herself internally, without fear of being in
terrupted by external danger; and, as after
this there will be no drafts upon her revenue
to meet extraordinary expenditures made
necessary on account of needed work on
levees, etc., she will soon reach a state of
financial ease that has not been hers before.
In a contemplation of these facts there must
be much consolation for tax-payers and
citizens generally. But there is also much
consolation in a knowledge of the fact that
the money spent upon the new levee dur
ing this and last years was well spent, and
therefore tax-payers, as a rule, will meet
the collector next year with smiling faces
and "fork over" the little turns set opposite
their names "for city purposes," with coun
tenances beaming with good cheer and with
a hearty "God bless you." "Thus mote it
For some years past there has been a
growing custom among merchants and
business men of presenting their customers
and patrons with small presents on Christ
mas. This practice has been carried to
such an extent by enterprising merchants
who wish to appear more generous than
their neighbor?, that it has become ho
enorm jus drain upon their stocks. Feel
ing that it is a use I ens extravagance caused
only by rivalry, the undersigned mercliauts
have signified their intention to give away
no presents on Christmas day.
