She left 8100,000 to r. Byron Thomas, a yonng farmer Several relatives have put in claims for portions of the fortune, and the af- faii promises to stir up no little ex citement. —The plan of raising the bonus of $60,000 at Aurora for the eastern stove company, wblcti was explained in this paper several days ago, is attracting wide spread attention. In case this city sLould be asked to give a bonus to a large factory to remove here, that plan is worth considering. —Lanark News:" 'Ye editor' is no longer a bachelor and all 'engagements' are declared 'off.'

Try a little earn in the ear. —A keen observer and an old traveler says the middle cars are always the safest! They do not receive a destructive blow from either front or rear collision; if the engine leaves the track they usually remain in place, and they are never snapped off, as the rear car sometimes is. Almost the only case in which middle cars suffer is when they are thrown off the track by the breaking of a coupling or of some part of the running gear, and that is as likely to happen to one part of the train as another. —The JSL'Tline wlif'lnvn Cs-ncva L>,k", Wis., last (ivr-mns. —Several Morrison people were in thi? ei'.y trading at our stores to-day. — Lincoln Canton of Patriarch Militants meets tonight to transact bn-.i- ness. —Georcre Roycr and wife and several ladies who accompanied them tol'enn- sylvania'aeveral months ago, have returned. —The Bureau County Bepubllcan •says: "Capt.

The Captain has no desire to lose the identity of his town, either figuratively or from a postal standpoint; and we do not blame him, for Bock Falls Is really a pushing little business place of two thousand inhabitants, and deserves fair consideration at the hands of Uncle Sam." Has the scare about losing the post office again developed in Bock Falls? —A misunderstanding exists regarding an item published in thri Colcta correspondence of this week. The reference to a constable being affected by liquor does not in any way reflect upon Mr. F.A. Gould.who is also a constable in Genessee, although he does not reside in Coleta. Furthermore, we will state that he is a geutlemau of. unblemished character, and is not in the habit of becoming affected in the way spoken of.

The reference was to another official. —About four o'clock yesterday afternoon a blaze sprang up from a manure heap in the rear of the horse stable at the west end of Wm. Mariahan's coal sheds. It was seen by railroad men, and an engine whistle was at once blown. Other parties at the distance of a few rods away saw it, but before thoy reached the. place, the little flame had spread into a blaze that had enveloped the end of the north shed. Hose Cart No. l was gotten to the scene in a very short time.asjwas No. 3 and the horse hose cart, and three streams were soon playing on the flre. A' half dozen C. B. & Q. cars, some box cars containing lumber and some containing coal, were badly scroched before they were gotten out of the way. The flames spread to the south shed, but that building was soon saved. The shed west of the cement warehouse was all that was burned. This contained a quantity of coal, salt and bay of Mauuhan'saudtwo carloads of wagon wheel felloes, belonging to A. B. Spies. About oue-fourth of the felloes were burned or damaged. Mr. Mananan'B loss is about 8400 and is mostly covered by insurance.

All fire incited to go up then and see his lish. Yesterday* noon, Rev. E. Brown of this city, performed tho weddlnp ceremony of Thomas G. Shannon, son of T. Y. Shannon,^ prominent farmer of Sterling township, and Miss Alice M. Book, tho beautiful and gifted daughter of D. G. Book,' the well known stock raiser'of Prairieville, at the bride's home. Miss Alice Snavely was the bridesmaid and Henry Book the groomsman. After the binding words were pronounced, and after heartiest congratulations, a sumptuous wedding dinner was served. Very handsome and useful presents were received. A goodly company of relatives and friends attended the nuptials.' We otter congratulations Tho couple will occupy the Alexander place north of Sterling, which the gjoom's father le- cently purchased. —The wife of one of the wealthiest citizens of this city was in Chicago a few days ago and while in a store where knitted goods of a very superior quality are sold and miide, the lady proprietor complained of the lack of mom in her factory. The customer at once recommended Sterling as a good place to remove her factory to, and told her that she would receive encouragement to locate here." The purchases being completed the lady went out upon the street, and soon after mot IX B. Strickler, secretary of the Sterling JJiifitnwff "Mwi'n -Ansfmliitlon, to whom she told her converBiition with the proprietor of the knitting works. Mr. Strickler visited the factory storeroom, and favorably impressed the lady with Sterling, and she promised to visit this city. Yesterdry, the lady and her son came here. The letter sent by Mr. Strickler was addressed to a gentleman who was and is absent from the city, so they were not met 'at the train, but they went up town, and were finally taken to the office of Mr. Geo. W. Chamberlin, who, upon learning their mission, invited all the city dry goods men In to meet them." The lady and her sonicouduct a knitting works that now gives employment to over 150 girls. Their toods are of a superior quality, to which the dry goods merchants of this city will attest, and their , trade is with the principal wholesale houses of the west. Want of room makeh it necessary to get larger quarters. Their machinery, 'v^ry little of which is required in knitting 'work, is worth 815,000. They want to move here and they want a business man of this city to act as bus- j iness manager. They desire to greatly enlarge the business and desire $15.000 extra capital to do it with. The proposition offered at the meeting yesterday is a very fair one, the business men thought, and we have no doubt that arrangements will be made to se- gure the factory at once. If the plant is doubled in size as they "desire to do, employment will be given to two or three hundred girls. There are several buildings in this city In which there are rooms just adapted for this kind of an industry. When we have a chance to secure so large an industry at so small an Investment of money, we see no reason why our wealthy people, who have the means, should our dry goods men bring it here.

In the 2:40 race Joe Fifer won in three straight heats, the best time being 2::;"^, although he made 2:: n ,5 flat. There were live starters. In this race Mr. Gleason's son George held the reins of Joe Fifer.and his horsemanship won the plaudits of the crowd. It was his first experience. In the free for all race, there were many fast horses entered, some which made records of 20}^ and 27}< at other races. Mr. Gloason's horse, Orson J., made the best time in the race, 2:32; 1 .{, winning second money in the third heat. He would have won first money, but for a slight accident. Wm. Arnot, of this county, had the misfortune to have his bay mare Blush break a leg. An effort is ibeing made to save the animal. Tuere were some hot races at Mt. Carroll and thirty-live horses were'entered.

STEELING. ILL., Oct. 10,1830. Editor Evening Gazette: „ The article from one of our business men reflecting upon the business capacity of the city council in reference to the size of sewer pipe on 3rd.street west of Locust is a hasty article, the writer not comprehending the office of the sewer for his remarks are not substantiated by facts. The 10 inch sewer pipe is not expected to drain the sup- erliclal surface of the whole creation but only one block, and from estimate the pipe is large enough to carry off the surplus water that would fall upon the given area with a storm that would cause one inch of water to fall every hour. The people that make connection with sewerage will have to have traps for their owu protection so that nothing but water can enter into the same. Therefore there is no danger of the sewer pipe being ailed up with oft&l from the kitchen as nothing but water is intended to pour through our sewers. If upon reflection a person would investigate the subject of sewerage or know more about it he will have less cause to Hud fault with thejmauuer in wluch our public improvements are constructed. J.
