Williams' men went to work Monday morning, but had not worked an hour before the day-men struck for $1.50 per day, they being paid $1.25. The superintendent promptly discharged the strikers 3 or 4 in all. Williams' mine then run on quietly all at work. Gilchrist & Co.. seeing that Williams had given their men the rise could not do less, and so, after some parleying with the miners, acoepted tbe old wages, they had struck for aod went to work yesterday morning, working about an hour, when the teamsters hauling coal to the railway and riyer struck for a advance stopping them for some time, but it was only a short delay, as teams were soon procured and business resumed. Gilchrist & Co. have Becured the con tract for furnishing the common schools of With COal the coming season This i competing with La Salle and all mines near there, and speaks well lor tbe quality of the coal produced here. Monday night a party got down a little too much beer, (tha oneratora "setting it irn" free to their men in consideration of the peaceful terminus of the strike), and fnnsenuently had a fight. No damage rlnne and only a little free ventilation of each , others' characters was indulged in Some threats were made by one of the party of arresting the other, but I guess reflection in the morning brought him to Bee , that he would only lose by the transaction, and it was dropped for the present, at least.

If there is anything that is thoroughly repugnant to the man of good hard sense, it is fulsome flattery. There is something si unreal, so nauseating to the finer feel5 inga h8 to create a sense of utter .disgust: It displays a lack of good sense on the part of the one who indulges in unreal compli ments, and the real motive is eo transpar ent to the one for which the flattery is in tended, that it cannot but awaken a feel ing of loathing. Apropos, is the article in the Mcline Review, on Rev. K. C. Bar nard which is so slobberly, gross, and overreaching in its nature as not to permit its being passed unnoticed. The writer proceeds to say that: Rev. E. C. Barnard, of the Congrega tional church is a remarkable preacher. His sermon last Sabbath on "Capital and Labor" was one ot the ablest discourses we have ever heard delivered Py any man." Hisermoa was a good one. no doubt. and may have been the best he (the editor) ever heard. Perhaps he had a very small list to select from. But listen to the way he blows his own bugle: We are glad to observe that he took the same view of the labor and capital question, taken by the Review in its issue of the Friday previous. Now, if the Review had any opinion during the recent strike, its editorials were not sufficiently lucid to admit of any such interpretation. Again, he gushes, to-wit: "The call of him to the pastorate of the Congregational church has inaugurated a ueci. iu iuc ui.iiv ciuqucutjc ui luisuuy. "New Era" is good, "pulpit eloquence" is better, and the whole sentence is at Variance with what everybody know?, that E. C. Barnard is not an elocutionist. But dwell on this brilliant effusion: ins intellect is imperial, his resources are inexhaustible. As a preacher he has no superior in the west. In matter, in structure, in diction, in phraseology, in de livery, and in everything, his sermons are strikingly original. Tbey are characterized by a depth of thought, love, sympathy and mercy a force of logic, a wealth of language, a sparkle of metaphor, a vivid ness ot description, a gracefulness of transi tion, and a felicity ol elocution, which, to gether, constitute the perfection of elo quence." io tee average reaaer it win need no explanation to show how utterly wrong this is. Everybody who has heard Rev. Barn ard knows that his delivery is poor, that he is not a brilliant orator. "Sparkle of metaphor," why, anyone to read this ut terly disgusting slobbering would imagine, if they were uuacauainted with Mr. Barnard, that he was a "Cicero," a Socrates," or a prototype of one of the mythological geniuses we read about. In a word it is gross injustice to Mr. Barnard, who is a man of good hard sense and a preacher of genuine usefulness, hut by no means a rhetorician cr elocutionist That he has a valuable fund of thought, and is an able man, no one will dispute, but aj for comparison with noted oratorical minis ters, when he lacks in oratory, in rhetorical display, and impassioned metaphoric passages, is simply fulsome, unreal, and patronizing in the extreme, and cannot but do harm where good was intended. If anything were needed to show the incon sistency of the whole eulogy(?), the fol lowing conclusively proves it: "The person ot the reverend 'gentleman is rather delicate, and his voice is of no great strength nor compass." Here the writer in the Reciexo. contra dicts all he has said. The whole article is far from complimentary to Mr. Barnard, and instead of serving the purpose for which it was intended, cannot but create a feeling of disgust among all true friends, and members of his congregation.

BThe resignation of J. W. Morey, chief of the fire department, is probably the result ot the negligence of the council's tire committee. Mr. Morey doea not wish to shoulder the responsibility of goiog to another fire with a worthless engine, and bear the censure and curses of an infuri ated mob of imbeciles who know not where the blame belongs. JEA man giving the name of Joseph Desett, was arrested by Officer Teller, for wandering aimlessly around town in a sus picious manner, about 2 o'clock this morn ing. He was taken before Magistrate Swander, and there being no further evi dence against him, was discharged upon payment of costs. He acted very ner vously and appeared in a great hurry to get out of the office, so much so, that the sufpicions of Officers ' Olson and Teller were aroused, and they watched him take a circuitous route and start east on the rail road as fast as he could walk, when they gave chase, overtook, and again lodged him in the calaboose. He answers the descrip tion of the tramp who did such bloody work in Knox county, last Sunday; in some respects very accurately, He had on Btriped pants, is dark complected, and has an old brown coat in bis satchell. He can hardly be the man, however, for Mr. Gault says he took eupper at his bouse Sunday eight, bat his appearance is sus picious. 2X&gistrate Swander's Court. Andrew Engstrom was arrested toy Officer Corney for being drunk. Fined $5 and costs, which was paid. John Olson, arrested by Officer Wells for being drunk and begging. Fined $5 and cost. No money. Sent to the cala boose. - , Herman Peterson was arrested, this morning, upon a warrant issued on com plaint of Andrew Johnson, June Sotb, charged with having pushed Willie, soa of Andrew Johnson, into a street fire, aroand which Willie and other children were play ing. Tbe evidence wan clear that he bad been passing along on the opposite side ol the street in a drunken - condition, and walked deliberate!? across and Bushed the boy into the, fire, laughing and remarking "You're gone ud now." Magistrate Swan der fined him $10 and costs, for the pay-, ment of which he gave an order on Keator & Son. He charged the court and re porters not to put his name in the papers. He made the item himself, and cannot expect his name to be withheld. ' Koline to the Front. Moline seems determined to have the lions share of the spoils the coming fall, and already numerous patriots are in the field ready to serve their sufferinz country. For instance. Commodore Morris would not object to being coroner. H. O. Whip ple could be persuaded to accept the coun ty clerkship, as could J. O. Anthony and a dozen others, A. F. Swander, Esq., is mentioned for county judge, so also is W. J. Entrikin. D O. Reid might be coaxe 1 into the county treajarership, or if he de clined then II. F. Thomas would take it, or hut it would take up too much space to enumerate the entire number of self- sacrificing mortals in this community. If put together the names would make a good sized city directory. Alas, however.for the uncertainties of politics.
