T, H. llrluir hni-at anBInf'ormalrjltf«epllon Last Evening;. Last evening was a memorable one for the local survivors of the famous Old 46th Ind., and particularly so for Its revered old Colonel. "Tom 1 ' Brlnghurst. The day was the 31st anniversary of that memorable en gagement at Champion H1U, in which the 46th rendered such distinguished and historical service, and the date was celebrated oy the local survivors and the friends of Colonel Brlnghurst by tendering to the Colonel R an informal reception at his reaidence, at the corner of Eighth anil Broadway, and the pluae- anb parlors of the jBringhurst residence were thronged during the even- Ing by friends calling to greet and pay their respects to the veteran Colonel. The halls and rooms were decorated for the occasion, the national colors being conspicuous on all sides and the oil) flag of the 46th was draped in the hall way. Light refreshments were served to each guest and it was an evening of signal enjoyment to all concerned. Reminiscences of the war and of the action of tbe 46th were recalled and many an Interesting jtory was told, stories of • camp and field and of those stirring scenes which tried men's hearts a third of a century ago* It was after ten o'clock when the last guest bade adieu for the evening. THE 46TH AT CHAMPION'S HILL. The battle of Champion's Hill, on the road to Vioksburg, was the crown- Ing military event in the splendid history and record of the 46th Ind. Vole., a regiment especially united to the people of this city and county, from the fact that Iti field officers, and nearly three companies Of the rank and file of the line, were residents of this community. The regiment was also organized in this oity, and so became peculiarly our representative at the front. We were grandly fortunate In all the companies that went out from our midst and became members of tbe 9th, 20th, 73d, 128th, and other regiments of glorious deeds and renown, and the 46th was not an exoeptlon]to this rule of superior merit. In all the fighting, marching, hardships and suffering of over four years of most active and arduous service, It was equal" in every emergency to all the requirements of Its duty, •; ••,?,.'•'••,«"• The battle of Champion's Bill was fought on the 16th of May, 1863, and was the result of a movement under the order of Gen. Grant to prevent the reinforcement of the Confederate forces in Vioksburg by the army of Gen. Pemberton, from Jackson. It was a movement that required great celerity and promptness on the part of the Union forces. The fighting; began with the landing of the troops at Grand Gulf and was kept-up all along the road to Vioksburg, culminating at Champion's Hill. At Port Gibson there was fighting which aisumed the dimensions-of a battle. In wb'lob the 46th distinguished itself by its bravery and efficiency. The marching was done In rain, or mud, or stilling dust; with skirmish fighting nearly every mile of the advance, with crowds of prisoners to care for, and with meals and rest snatched from oppportunlty by chance. In all of these trials and hardships the 46th was never absent from its post of duty, or behind its time. So on the morning of the 16th of May, when the Union troops struck the rebel line of battle, the first brigade of the 12th division Gen. Hovey's was in the advance, with the 24th, 46th and 16th Ohio battery in the front. It was Gen. Hovey's division that advanced upon the rebel line, and the 46th was In the fire point of the advance. The rebels were driven back over their batteries. They again rallied Into line and the fighting became desperate. The struggle, In close conflict, continued over an hour, with varying results. Several pieces of artillery were cap* tured, three by the 46th and recap, tured by the rebels. In his Memoirs Gen. Grant says: "The battle of Champion's Hill lasted about four hours, hard fighting, preceded by two or three hours of skirmishing some of which almost rose to the dignity of battle. Every man ofJHovey'a division and of McPherson's two divisions, was engaged during the battle. No other part of my command was engaged at all." The history of the 46th regl- ment, compiled by Col. T. H.. Bringhurst and <Japt. . Frank,. Swlgart, says: The fight began too early. Many divisions were yet upon the road, and calls for help were unheeded. The larger portion of the Thirteenth corps Gen. MoClennand's—heard the thunder of battle and loitered. Gen. rant attributes the failure to prevent Pemberton from getting back to Vloksbnrg to MoCleonud'a delay." The most dasperate"and protracted of the fighting of the 46th was at a point where the tide of battle ebbed and won—In the /hottest" place in the strife. The loss of the 46th in this battle waa twenty killed, sixty-one wounded and three missing. Several of the killed and wounded were from this olty and county. The loss of Hovey's division was 28.7 per cent, of the whole number engaged. The total Union loss waa 2,108—losses equal In proportion to tbe losses ol any battle of the war. The heroes of Champion's Hill have given proof of their courage and patriotism, and it should be considered a high privilcg-e by the present and succeeding general ions ol patriotic Americans, to cherish the memory of thoir grand deeds, and give the honor due to the gallant veteran survivors of the battle on every fitting occasion.

TUc Clrcu* l« Not tbe Drawing Card It Once WB»—Hard Time* Keep the People at'Homv. Yesterday was circus day. There was a time when circus day in Logansport meant thronged streets from'early morning till late at night. It did not mean that yesterday. People have not the money to spare for circuses, and the crowd yesterday was far from being up to the standard. The performance in the afternoon was witnessed by a crowd which filled little more than half tbe seats. In the evening there was a better business, the big tent being pretty well filled. Sells Bros, give a good ring performance most of the old familiar features being up to the standard and some excelling. They have a big show and their animals are in fine condition. The show went from here to Fort Wayne, having come from Lafayette. A dklllfpl Driver. From numerous horsemen most oom- mendatory words have been beard of the skill displayed ' by Ed Hardy in driving "Kitty Plato" in the success, ful race at the driving park last Tuesday, and experienced horsemen declare that young Mr. Hardy has within him the elements of a correct and successful driver. Tbe comment on his manner of handling the mare in the race has been of so unusually a complimentary character as to merit public note, and the driver has received the applause of the horsemen of the city who witnessed the exhibition. _ Death*.

To bo graceful, entertaining, ac. . compllshed in music and French, easy talkers on topics of tbe day, yet up in ancient history—this snd much niore is what society expects of the younff gits who "come out" at 18 or 19. Jn the few jears before 20 so great a change id wrought that we almost, as if by magic, eeo a woman, where but a short time before wa'only.f child. If. during theee critical year?, eon- staut mental exeriion absorbs blood and nervo force, tbe system grows feeble and tuflers from lack of nourishment. Toe vital mistake of the thousands of girls who yearly break down in schools and colleges is just here: A vigorous, healty body and brain must have an unlimited Eiipply of pure, rich blood, fully capable of building up growing tissues and repairing the waste of hard worked nerves and brain and body. This is just what Paine's celery compound is providing today for overworked, anxious, -run down'' people all over the Unlud States ani Canada. If care be taken that no part of the body be poorly nourished, a great deal of hard work and study can - be safely gone through. But when young girls are seen to grow thin, pile, spiritless, and nervous, there Is plainly starvation of some of the. important organs and a craving of th* blood and nerves for better nutrition. Paice'« celery compound was first prepared by Prof. Kdward E. Phelps, M. D.. LL. D., of Du-tmouth college, with the fullest knowledge of any medical man of hie day of what tired, weak, nervcus women need to male* them we'l and strong. The happy effects of Paine's celery compound in ail cases of debility, . nervous weakness ace impoverished, Impure blood are astonishing. It makes people well where everything ' else falls. This remarkable remedy makes sickly, feeble women strong; does away completely with the languid feeling that comes ftom underfed nerves and blood. As a sure sign of Its radical effect on the system for good, it is noticed that in a short time the eyes grow clearer and brighter, the cheeks ruddier, and tbe mind more active and " hopeful. Paine's celery compound cure* dyspepsia, sick headaches, neuralgia, rheumatism and every symptom of .impureblood, and permanently cures the most difficult diseases of the liver kidneys and heart. Thousands and thousands of mem and women who have taken Paine's celery compound are today perfectly • well and happy. A »en»»tl»n«J I«clde»t. What might have been a serious accident occurred to H. Harvey ash* was driving up Broadway yesterday evening. A buggy in front of him turned aorots the street car track in such a manner [tkat the Vandalia car coming west struck Mr. Harvey's horse knocking him down, bending the front axle of the buggy throwing tbe old gentleman out but fortunately the oar was stopped before either Mr. Harvey or horse were Injured. Mr. Harvey claims the street car company were to blame while parties who saw the accident say the motorman was blameless. Mrs. Lon Walllck, wife of the Wabash agent at New Waverly, had her . pocket book taken while doing toma shopping yesterday. She paid for a bill of goods and laid her pocket book on tbe counter while she looked after her child for a moment. She gathered up her parasol and started out.
