FUNERAL OF CHARLES JONES —The uneral of Mr. Charles Jones took plane it 2 o'clock p. m. yesterday, from the Union BaptUt church, with a largo attendance, Rev. Mr. Turner officiating. The bearers were: Messrs. Wilson, Vm. Baker, Solomon Howard, Henry fox, Albert Jackson, Jas. Brook. The •emaini were buried in the city ceme- «ry. ' MX. Philip Phillips' series of enter- ainmento closed Saturday evening with he lurgest audience of the week. The eries, considered morally, historically , duoationally and musically, was a uocensand, undoubtedly, or great ben» fit to all who attended. The financial esnlts were satisfactory. Mr. Phillips went from bore to St. Uuis where he will give his entertainment* for. three nights in the First Bap'.lst church. EARTHQUAKE.- -A very perceptible hook of earthquake was felt in this city about 4; 16 o'clock yesterday morning. Windows and doors rattled loudly. The shook was accompanied by a low umbling noise. The vibration was very brief but long enough to arouse many persons from their ilumbttni. The shook was felt slightly in St. Louis, ml reports from all over Southern Illl- ion are lo thotjffeot that the disturbance. was quite sever*. M>98Bi. Pfansohraldi <t Dodge, of 3bloago, manufacturers of the patent North Star Waobboard, have established an agency in Australia.

H« finds that tht land it not within 160 miles of Peoria, but touches the Mississippi river and it in Maditun county, being in townships 4 south and 5 south of range 10 west. Mr. Worthington aayt tbt plats have just been filed and he hat given them a careful examination, with i he result above stated. If this be true it will end tht Renault excitement BO far at Peoria ia concerned. Mr. Worthington cannot have given the plats a very eareful examination If be assert* that the gran to named art in this county. A gianc* at a township mao will show him that townships four and five touth, range 10 west, are not in Madison county, but lit part in Moa rot anJ part in Uandolph oountiei, old Fort Cbartres being at tbt southwest corntr of the tract. Townships four and five north, range 10 west, are in this county, 6 being Alton township and being part of Chonteau island ia tht Mississippi rivtr. Philip Renault, whow beira now claim a grant of land ta this State front the French government, was Dlrt>«tor Geueral of the famous aid ill-starred "Mississippi company." He sailed from France in 1719 and located with his colony in what is now townships 4 and I south, range 10 west, In Monroe county, a part of t. 4 extending into Randolph. If his heirs have any claim it is, doubtless, to the lands on which he located, as above noted, but history states that after the collapse of ihe "Mississippi company" the lands granted to it reverted to the crown. There is no probability that Philip Renault's heirs have any claim, but if they have it is to lands in Monroe and Randolph counties, not in Madison as Mr, WortbiBgton figures out, UTBB 51y?i. The river is rising slowly. The Spread Eagle left for St. Lous this morning at 9 o'clock the heavy fog preveniing an earlier start. The boat made a short trip up the river Saturday but got no farther than the Piasa dike, not being able to cross that obstruction on account ot the low stage of water and the prevalence of ice.

JalS 8 UIHsaadeartfens. It is a good plan to let your girls hove a flower garden. Teach them to love towers, and to caltivatt then, .both in the the boase and in the gar den. It stimulates in them a love for the beautiful and at the same time educates them in the art ot gardening so that when they are grown, and taeir husbands are obliged to be busy at the 1 idtre, or talking politics on the corners or in the saloons, tne wi/es can hoe tbt •oiatoes, weed tht onions and pole the b <ans. There u nothing like bringin| the girls up to useful employment*. Little I'hll'. Farm. When down in Perrv .county, the other day, writes a Columbus correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, ] crossed over a corner of Gen. Phi Sheridan's farm ncur Bristol tunnel on the Baltimore and Ohio rood. For just what purpose he bought the one bun drod and sixty odd acres, be the same more or less, no one but himself knows, unless it should be Dr. H. C. Greiner, the ex-statesman, who is the general's agricultural agent. Greiner goes down from Somerset about once every three months and raises the devil with th* general's tenants, who occasionally get short on rents. If there is anything else raised on the farm the neighbor* are kept in profound ignorance of it I have an idea that Gen. Sheridan bought the farm BO M to Insure himsell exercise when he retiree from th« army, and it will be an excellent placv for the purpose. He can follow tbf chipmunks, squirrels, rabblta, quail, and ground-hogs the whole year round, and insure himself against the rust o< inactivity, to say nothing of the exercise that will be necessary for him to tickle the taxes out of the land. The price paid for the land Is strictly private, but real-estate expert* toll me that it didn't cost less than $16 01 $20 an acre, and the general's old friends are highly elated to think that he has lived with ao much frugality that he boa been able to save enough to purchase a fine farm alongside ol his uncle, Jimmy Clark, out of his salary as comraander-ln-chlef of tbf army of the United State*. There is a story told down in Perry county that Phil bought the farm foi the benefit of his brother, CoL Michael V., wbo is a great bird-shot, and who is able to bring down six farmers, at their boySpfor every bird. The story goes that whoa the bird season open* next year all the occupants of the fanr are to b« temporarily evicted, and Mik» is to bo lot loot** with bis gun. UK eviction ia to Uiko place because Perry county doesn't waut to have its population reduced, and preparations wiP bo made to board the exiled tenantry around until the season closes. Moreover, in a few years the whole county will be stocked with quail and ph«a» anU from G«n. Shoridau'a farm, for tlio more Mike hunts for them tho tuort rapidly they multiply.
