The spirit runs very high here agninst Mr. Bingley for not letting us or the poor mother hear from them, after promising to report weekly. It would not hurt the orphanage," as the children would scarcely be missing, because wo have so many. Only thick that a mother has almost goce crazy, fretting after the little chil dren by not knowing or bearing anv thing of them. I thank you over and over stt.-n lor th? spirit you have manifested iu the matter.

J Billy Lamhcrt, the Davenport pu gilist, was easily whipped by Bob Long, the colored lighter, at Claus Groin, hall last evening. Qaite a orowd waited until midnight and then saw less than two rounds of a go. Long was tho aggressor from the sound of the gong and went at his antagonist in a smashing, slash ing manner, that very quickly put a disastrous end to the proceedings. Lambert staggered and tumbled to the t! tor, taking foil time to regain his feet It wns conceded by his friends that Lambert was as good as put cut in the first, and was overly glad to go to hie corner, while the negro wore simply a tantalizing smile. Lambert came np sparingly in the second, while the crowd yelled be a man and fight " The fight was spirited, Long doing all the rushing. He landed right and left at will with telling effect, and but for kindness would several times have sent Lam bert to the fl jnr outside the rope. Completely Knocked Oat. The round had hardly begun when Lambert lay p one on the floor, feigning for time, and long before the sound of the gong he was dou bled np in his corner. Lambert was unablo to respond, thongh the crowd yelled wildly. He managed to stag ger to bis feet as he was counted out by Harry Toher, the referee. Long begged for another round, but Lambert threw his coat around himself and meandered from the ring, while Long remaited, and received an ovation at the hands of admirers. U was no draw, far from it. It was a clean smash nut. Mr. SfeXatt'a Will The will of the late William Mc- Nutt, of B iffalo Prairie, was pro bated in the county court yesterday.
