But there u a material difference between scouring a charter and fulfilling it* condition*.— St. Loui* Railway Serjuler. The TBLKOBAPH baa heretofore predicted that the proposed Merchant*' bridge at St. Louts would never be built. The Regtiltr is evidently of the earns opinion. The building of the now bridge at Alton will obviate the neooi- •ity of another at St. Louu. It will be cheaper for the anti-Gould roadi, running into East St. Louie, to extend hulr line* to Alton Initead of chipping in to build a new bridge at St. Louu. ••or the yew 1*7 w» (ball chart* tb« tol. lowing r*tef lor tM&ttMit notice* in our local columns: BATES or ADTSBTtUKd: imi—rjtTf cents per Inch first in- settlon, t and TWBXTI.rira cent* per inch lor eaob tubs* quent insertion, B per inch first month, 11.80 per fakolTeaeh month thereafter * LEGAL ADVERTISING): H per Inch tor the first luaertlon.'and M cent* per inch lor each subsequent Insertion. «r Above rates will be sti letly adhered to.

FORT DONKLSON—Tomorrow is the 35th anniversary of the battle of Fort Donelson, fought Feb. 16th and 16th, 1862. In commemoration of the event we publish on the second and fonrtb pages of this paper a full historical account of the great event.

MBTOHMOBM—The venerable Alexander Mutchmore, of Moro, whose Illness we recorded last week, died at six o'clock this morning at his residence In Moro, aged 93 years. He was a native of Pennsylvania, and removed to Moro, from Ohio, some 26 vears ago. He was the father of Rev. Dr. Mutchmore, an eminent Presby* terlan divine, of Philadelphia, and of Mr, T. A. Mutchmore, Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Deuny, of Moro. Mr. Robt. Sims, of this city, was a relative of bis family by marriage. AND now it is rumored that the C. & A. may conclude to cross the river at Alton on the projected Central Missouri bridge; then throw a bridge across thi Missouri and run directly south to St. Louis, thus dodging both the Gould bridge and the Wiggins Ferry Co. Whiteness, L'ebtneps and Sweetness are all necessary for good bread, and to secure this result you should uae only La Belle flour. 29d eod 2w wVt THE competitive examination for the West Point cadetship took place at East St. Louis Saturday. The successful contestant was Mr. Chas. Ogden, of Greenville. The competitors from Alton wore Mr. E. W. Sparks, who stood second; Louis Yager, Ed. Thornton and Fred. Browning. FOB REMT—Stow room under Hottl Madison, formerly occupied by Singer Mtg. Co.—Goo. R. Hewitt, Seo'y. 143 SEBVIOEI AT ST. PAUL'S.—The services at Si Paul's Episcopal church last evening were of an unnaally interesting character, proving both attractive, entertaining and instructive to the largr congregation present. The choir of 12 boys in white surplices, who marched in procession, wns a feature tnat attract, ed universal admiration. They joined m the choruses with the choir thus making the musio unusually effective. After the service of Even Song, the Rector, Archdeacon F. M. S. Taylor, read for about SO minutes from Gen. Lew Wallace's great work: "Ben Hur; a tale of.tbe Christ," with fine effect. Mils Pearl Hewitt rendered an offertory solo, "Heavenward," in a most impressive manner. The full choir, tnc most of whom were present, consists of Mrs. U. F. Growc, Mrs. O, B. Stelle, Misses Jennie Siem, Luoie Coville, Alice and Ida Carnaban, Marie Buck master, Lucy Husklnson, Grace Stelle. Pearl Hewitt; Messrs. J.W. Floyd, F. II. Habe, W. W. Arnold, George and Chas. liusklnson, Alon»o Topping. Mr. W. J. Gratlnu, organist, aUo trains the oholr. THE organ of the city administration again makes a weak attempt to defend the hasty and ill-considered action of the Council in granting a Springfield electric light and steam heating company a valuable franchise wlthou due investigation. The trouble with the Democrat'! explanation is that it does not explain; it docs not show that any "emergency" existed, or that there was any necessity for railroading a matter <»f such importance through the Council without allowing it to lie over one meeting, at least, after allowing the propositions of other companies to lie over two meetings. Perhaps the reason the admmistra. tion organ defends the haste of the Council was that the proposition ot the Thompson-Houston Co. contained this guarantee: "We further herein most faithfully promise should this privilege be granted to us- Thomson-Houston Electric Co or assigns—that we will not bargain nor sell such privilege to the Alton Gas* light and Coke Co. (or Works.)" The proposition of the Springfield company contained only this guarantee; "That we propose to erect and maintain the plant ourselves. That we do not auk this right fur the purpose of speculating on the same." Perhaps the Council did not want to discriminate against tke Gas Co. The corporators of the Springfield company are Messrs. Black, Jones and Lawrence. Who are the stockholders? Coal. Buy jour Hard and Soft Coal of H. L. Winter and get the best.

One benetil will be this: When St. Louis merchants want to go to Kaiuns City to purchase guods they can take a plug train from St. Louis to Alton: ohunge cars here to the main line and be landed in Kansas City In advance of any competing route. This will bo a great thing for St. Louis and we regret that the Reqitter does not appreciate iw prospective commercial privileges. Adrlco to Mother*.
