It was in res sponse to invitations previously sent out that hosts of friends from far and near improved this happy opportunity of pay in? respects and extending congratula tions to the worthy couple. The spacious parlors of the First M. E. church parson age on Nineteenth street were filled with a merry gathering, when at 9 o'clock the anniversary ceremony was performed by the Rev. I. T. Whittemore, of Norwood, Mercer county, who officiated on the occasion of the happy event twenty-five years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Pearce stood in the bow window, over which were the dates "1860 188S," in silver letters interwoven with delicate vines and white flowers. In perform ing the ceremony, Mr. Whittemore de livered the following fitting address: The clock of destiny has struck twenty-five. The great reaper has cut a large swath in these two and one half decades. Great men and small men have bowed and fallen. Johnson, Lincoln, Garfield and Grant are no more; Scott, Jackson, Stephens, Beauregard and Foote have gone; Livingston, Victor Immanuel, Lou is Napoleon and Victor Hugo in the old world and Morse, Agassiz, Brvant, Greeley, Seward, Chase and Longfellow our countrymen have paid the last debt of nature. Today our nation bends and drops loving tears of sorrow over one of her greatest heros, who "sleeps the sleep that knows no waking." "One of the few immortal names That were not born to aie." But, while the march of men and na tions has been ever onward and while the ranks of the living have been thinning, you and your beloved companion with firm step advance. lour friends have met tonight to erect an arch of triumph, under which you will pass, but never to return. This anniversary is a testimony of the honor put upon faith in God, over cring ing doubt of greatness over meanness, of right over wrong; truth over error as seen in your life. You have u right to this honor: you have won and earned it; and yet, it is not you that we eulogize, but the Christ you have served the grace of God in you. On that auspicious day twenty -five years ago when you led to the altur your lovely Queen Esther, you were a happy marl, aud justly proud tnat vou had wooed and won a companion so well suited to your pus.tioa. Little you knew her then; now you know her well; and to know , her as you do, is to love as none but a true husband can. Faithful and true has she been to you, and you prize her as heaven's best earthly gift. She brought as a dowry, a wealth of love. At your nrst charge in New Michigan, one of the gods of "thought" was laid in your nest your darling Willie. He prattled and crowed, and gladdened your hearts for a brief year and a half, but in your second charge, at Eureka, came your first great sorrow, as the death an gel bore him to his heavenly home. At Chenoa your third charge sweet little Carrie came to stay. At Pleasant Hill your fourth charge came Robbie to gladden y.iur hearts and Carrie's. At your fifth charge Pekin dear little Les lie opened his eyes, soon to close tnem, and "was not, for God took him." At Washington, your sixth charge, Mary Jane knocked.and you quickly opened the door and bade her welcome, and she, too, joins us in these festivities. At Wincna, your seventh charge, lively little Kicbard called and you said, "come in," and he did, and is here yet, thank God. Your eighth charge was at Dwight; your ninth at Fairbury, where many years Before, a large congregation met in the Metho dist Episcopal church to bear you as the bov ureacher. At your ninta cnarge your brethren of conference said "come up higher," and you were elected presid ing elder and located at Onarga. During the years here three darlings entered your nest, one of whem, Johnny, was Krn to join his angel brothers in the house not made with bands, wmle Addie, Josephine and Esther Elizabeth still lived. Your eleventh charge was Peoria, your twelfth at Galesburg, where the spirit of your sweet Addie was called home alter two and one half summers. Monmouth was your 13th charge, and this the four teenth. Four immortals safe with Jesus ; five yet brighten "your home and cheer your hearts. As a reward of fidelity and recognition of talent, your brethren have raised you from step to step in honor and responsi bility until Hedding college confessed the degree which you so modestly and yet worthily bear. And reasoning from effect to cause my conclusions are not random, but logical when I affirm that it is because you have been from the first a firm de fender of the "faith once delivered to the saints;" loyal to your church and to your country; that you have been raised by your peers and superiors from one posi tion of trust to another, till you have reached the crowning excellence of today. Your friends have met this evening to do you honor. And I, as a little mouth piece, do but voice the sentiment, not nly of this congregation who have come to congratulate you on this memorable occasion, but to the vast multitude to whom you have ministered in your former charges. You live in their mem ories and in their hearts. You have mar ried their sons and daughters; have bap 1 tized and lead their children to Christ; and when the death angel has come and borne them to the land of the blest, you have ministered to their comfort and touchingly said, "I know thy sorrows. In bow many 'revivals you have wrought; how many souls led to Christ: how many young lives you have shaped for usefulness; how many young men led into the ministry, and maidens to the honored position of teacher; how many home and foreign missionary hearts you have gladdened by your loving corres pondence, and what good your alms have done; what grand and living influences for good you have started by your "breathing thoughts and burning words" coals from God's altar from the pulpit is not for me to mention tonight. All glory to him who called you from the plow to the altar, and who has made you by his irrace what you are today. Your record of these twenty-five years is on high. An unseen reporter has not missed a "local" or an "event," not a word spoken or written; not even a thought. What you have said for Christ and his church for God and humanity will erow brighter when the stars have grown dim. What vou have said or done for self, will perish. 8o would you have it "Blood is thicker than water." Blood i tells. Y'ou have come from good stock, from the stuff of which martyrs and cons j lessors are made. Those Scotch ances ! tors, were they here tonight, would not be ashamed of their son. But you, if you boast at all, prefer to sing- "In the cross of Christ I elory, towerinng o'er the wrecks of time," in the "blood of the everlasting covenant," I boast. Throughout your long career as a ser rant of Jesus Christ you have felt that: "There i a destiny that shapes our ends. Rough hew them as we will." That destiny you recognize as the special providence of God. That unseen eye has watched and that hidden hand has led and you have sought humbly but earnest ly to follow "in the path the master trod," and this following has been your safety. Y'ou may not have reached the zenith of your usefulness. Your "eye is not dim, nor your natural force abated." Y'ou have not reached the "deadline." Your best work may be before you. As you have so tar in life kept the cross con stantly in view, so keep ypur eye and heart on it till death. Twenty -five years hence few of these beaming faces and loving hearts will be here. But no matter. If all are doing the master's work and living his life, and fulfilling his will, there will be a happy and glorious reunion, where no farewells are spoken and no tears fall. God bless you my brother, and you my sister, and the children God has spared you, and the people to whom you minis ter. God bless you in all the twenty five years to come, and may the warm hand shakings and benedictions of this evening remain in your memory as a perfume of amaranthime sweetness and beauty. And now as you reassume your marital vows and join your right hands you do promise, as God gives you grace, that during all the years to come, you will love and cherish and be faithful and kind and sympathizing towards each 'other, till the eud comes. I do hereby declare that you have been and shall be and your "right there is none to dispute," husband and wife, and the blessed parents of these blessed children, and those "beyond the sighing and the weeping," and when it shall be the good pleasure of your Father in Heaven to give you and them the kingdom and mansion the robe and crown the harp and the white frtooe, may you and they join with one heart and voice in singing. Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood and bath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father to Him be glory and dominion forever. Amen. Many were the congratulations and good wishes which the estimable couple received, and then refreshments were served, after which the following list of presents were displayed. Teaset, a dozen tea-spoons, and hi'f a dozen knives and forks, from the First Methodist Episcopal church: a bowl to matrb, Mesdames J. S. McCord. D. E. Noflsker, J. N. Spencer, and E. W.

The Grant Memorial Services in Rock Island 'Procession, Line of March, Exercises and General Observances. Eiver Kipleta. A negro rouster on the steamer Pitts burg, named Win. Jackson, was shot in the hip by tht captain of the watch, Jos. Brown (also colored) at 4 o'clock Wednes day morning, while the boat was lying ai the East Dubuque wharf. The immedi ate cause of the shooting could not be learned, as the boat put out for the north soon after, and Jackson would not say anything about it. Il seems, however, that they quarreled some days ago, while coming up the river, aud it is thought the shooting was the outcome of the trouble. The wounded man' was tnken to Mercy hospital in Dubuque by the Diamond Jo company. The dredge boat Little Giant was taken under the bridge by taking down the crane and boring a bole in the bottom of the boat, allowing four feet of water to enter the hull, and letting her down just low enough to pass through. She was sent here by Haram & Linehan, of Du buue, to work for E. P. Reynolds & Co. Tae steamer Entna. after delivering the dredge boat, went down to the boat yard and took four barges to Keithsburg, 111 . , where they will be used in building the bridge there. The Linehan Ferry company, of Du buque, have had their transfer steamer, Wm. Osborn. on the ways here for the past month, and carpenters under charge of Kahlke Bros., are putting in a new hull. They expect to launch her next Monday. When complete she will go to Keithsburg and they will put on the steamer Northern Pacific for a thorough overhauling. Capt. D. W. Linehan is down at the yard overseeing the work. The steamer Silas Wright brought up two dump boats from Keithsburg and de livered them to the dredge boat here. Bart E. Linehan was a passenger on her to this point. The Mary Morton, of the famous Dia mond Jo line, departed for St. Paul yes terday evening. She had a full cargo of freight and every cabin was engaged. The Sidney, Capt. James Best, follows on Saturday, at 4. p. m. St. Louii Globe Dem ocrat. The Mary Morton will be here Saturday afternoon. There is a good stage of water at this point, but above Dubuque the river is low and reclining. Dr. McCandless, dentist, corner Third avenue and Twentieth street tf A SOLEMN OAT. Tomorrow afternoon, the appointed time for the consigning of the honored remains of Gen. U. S. Grant to their final resting place, will be a solemn occasion n Rock Island, and preparations now in progress point to one of t most impres sive and imposing demonstrations the city has ever known. In compliance to the mayor's proclamation it is hoped and desired that all business men, merchants and manufacturers will close their estab lishments, lay aside all thoughts of work and political strife, and with oae accord pay the last tribute to the nation's distinguished dead. To the end that their employes may join in the national observances, many of the large business houses have already signified an intention to close for the day at 11 o'clock in the morning. This morning a representation of all the banks in the city met at the People's Na tional bank, and it was formally agreed that all the banks should close at 11:30 in the morning and remain closed for the rest of the day. In accordance with the following order the postofflce will be closed between the hours specified there in: Postoffice Department, Office of the First Asst. P. M. Gen. Washington, D. C, July 29, 1S85.

The couity and city offices will be closed after 11 o'clock in the morning and business in general will suspend. Today considerable additional draping is being done. The court house has been hung in black and many business blocks along the line of march display the in- signa of mourning. During the hours of the funeral the bells all over the city will toil and minute guns will be fired on the government i-iand. The order of the commander in chief of the G. A. R. relative to the memorial services concludes: "Consciously march ing over the road where only his foot prints linger, and toward the goal he has now reached, his comrades of the Grand Array make to his memory their last fra ternal salutation. It is recommended to department commanders that a day be announced in orders upon which the posts in their several jurisdictions may meet in open session, or otherwise, that each comrade may have an opportunity to pay the tribute of respect his fuil heart prompts. Let the colors at nation al and department headquarters and of the posts be draped, and the usual b&de of mourning be wort by all comrades for sixty days."

A Line in Progress-Kchoes From the Rail. A circular signed by J. M. Forbes, chairman of the board of directors of the C, B. & Q-, officially announces that "an organization is being formed by Mr. A. E. Touzalin and associates, to be called the Chicago, Burlington & 'Northern Railroad company, the object of which is the construction of a railroad from Ore gon, on the Chicago & Iowa railroad, and Fulton, on our own line, to a junc tion at or near Savanna, in Carroll coun ty, 111., and thence up the east bank of the Mississippi river to St. Paul." The circular adds: A joint traffic contract will be made between the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad company and the Chica go iSe Iowa Railroad company, on the one hand, and the Chicago, Burlington & Northern Railroad company on the other, to run for twenty years, and providing, among other things, that the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and Chicago & Iowa Railroad companies shall devote one half of the estimated net earnings annually on all business to and from the Chicago. Burlington & Northern first mortgage 5 per cent bonds at not above 105 and ac crued interest. In case they cannot be pur chased at that price, a sufficient amount of bonds to absorb the fund shall be drawn by lot and paid for at 105 and ac crued interest. The bonds, when so pur chased or drawn, are to be converted into the capital stock of the Chicago. Burling ton & Northern railroad company at par and then canceled. The Chicago, Bur lington & Quincy railroad company guar antee that from the time of the comple tion of the line to St. Paul the amount annually invested in the purchase of bonds shall be less than $100,000. The length of the new road will be about 360 miles. The capital stock now to be issued is fixed at 90,000 shares, and the bonds at $9,000,000, or $25,000 per mile of each. It is estimated that the proceeds of these securities will be suffi cient to build and equip the road and to pay interest on bonds during construc tion. President R. R. Cable, of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific road, left last night for a three weeks' trip through Oregon and Washington territories. He goes by the Northern Pacific, and will return by the Oregon short line . SUBURBAN SIFTI.MiS. Mar;io;. 111., Aug. o. Mr. Garber overheated several horses last week, one of which died. Sons were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hatch and Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Marston, Aug. 3. The hum of the threshing machine is heard in this neighborhood ' for the first time today. Rumor whispers that one of our young men is to be wedded to a lady in an ad joining town across the line. John Lenz is in Nebraska looking for a suitable place to ltcate. If be is suc cessful in finding one we shall lose one of our finest farmers and best citizens. There was an ice cream festival at the Antioch Baptist church last night with a fair attendance. The proceeds are to go toward painting and kalsomining the church. The corn prospect has undergone quite a change during the past month, and with a favorable fall the crop will be the best for years. The frequent showers which were detrimental in haying and harvest, and the intense heat at times almost in tolerable are responsible for the change. The enterprising young man, Mr. A. V. Elliott, who dealt so extensively in rabbits last winter at Marston, has located in BaSalo Prairie, where he will probably be glad to greet all his old customers. The market just now is rather dull, but with the approach of cold weather an upward tendency h looked for. Fienie- Tbere will be a picnic on Credet island on Sunday, Aug., 9 1885. Bleuer's band will furnish music on the boat, also for dancing. Steamer with barges leave the Diamond Jo landing, Rock Island at 10 a. m., 1 and 3 and 5 p. m., from the plow factory at 11 20 a. m., and 2 and 4 and 6 p.m. Attention, Knights! 8t. Paul Lodge So. 107, K. of P., meet in regular convention Friday even' ing at 7:30, sharp. a Coal Valley, Aug. 6. The extreme heat last week was verv oppressive on both man and beast. Misses Mamie and Lillie Lee, of Cable, are here visiting friends. John r. Hass is furnishing the brick on the count v farm for the coal shed and boiler. The steum thresher could be heard and the clouds of e moke seen the latter part of last week, in the country. John O. Johnson, one half mile morth of here, bad a horse drop dead in the reaper last Thursday. There has been a move here to change the postmaster. A petition was circus lated last week in favor J. W. Gordon. Mrs. Herman Nitz has been quite sick for the past eight days, but is now im proving. Miss Mary F. Harris left on last Thurs day for Emporia, Kan., where she intends to remain for about a month. D. R. Mirbenrr passed through here on Saturday on the afternoon train. Mr. M. has been an a lecturing tour. In a month he will commence school in Orion, as principal. ; We have copious rains following the intense heat, which may wurk against the grasshoppers, as the oats and grass are cut now. I hese destroyers will, if not thinned out by some sweeping cause, go on the corn and do some damage to it: The corn has improved 25 per cent in the last two weeks, and if these little hoppers do not injure it we bid fair to have a good crop.
