Ti» extension of the railroad from Elsah to Alton Is as important to our merchants and manufacturers as the building of the Central Missouri to this point. The extension to Elsah would benefit our local trade and open new markets for our products in Jersey, Maoonpln and Calboun counties that are now closed to us or only available by roundabout, and expensive routes. Besides, an enterprise that would develop the valuable quarries between here and Grafton could not but be of benefit to our merchants. Unlike some other railroad lines, which might be named, our retail trade has everything to gain and nothing to lose by this proposed extension. IT Is pleasautnr to praise than to blame. It is easier to flatter public officials than to criticise their act*. It is far more agreeable to a newspaper to ignore the derelictions of officials than to call attention thereto. It is unpleasant to make enemies of officials, especially when against them, personally, you have no feeling other than kindness. But a newspaper's duty to the public tometimes requires sacrifices of this kind, although the editor thereof knows that he will get no thanks from the.public for bis trouble and will have to make his fight unaided. We make these remarks simply in explanation of criticisms of the Council and city officials that have appeared in these columns. The reference is, of course, to the rnling majority of the Council, at It is by the acts or omissions of this majority, that the public record of the body is made up. In regard to this record we have told nothing but the truth and have nothing to retract; but, on the contrary, have tbe material for further strictures, should tbe occasion seem to demand. PERSONAL.

Yesterday was the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Cbas. Holden, Sr, of this city. The anniversary was made the occasion of a pleasant-family reunion, children, grandchildren and other ^relatives of tbe venerable couple, gathering at their residence on Sixth street last evening to present their congratulations and spend a few hours in social intercourse and recalling family reminiscences. A very pleasant evening was spent, re- refreshment! being served, and tho bride and groom remembered with appropriate souvenirs of the occasion. Mr. Cbas. Holdon and Miss Ehzibeth Cunningham were married in Leeds, Yorkshire, England,Feb. 21,1837. They removed to this country five years later, arriving in Alton Dno. 25th, 1812, where they have since made their home. Mr. Holden Is now <n his 78th year and his wife in her 70th—and, we trust, have many years yet before them. Their children all reside In this city, viz.: Messrs. Charles, Jr., Richard and Geo. Holden, and Misses Emma and Mnttie Holden. WASHINGTON'S HIRTUUAY. This Is tbe 165th anniversary of the birth of the Father of bis Country.

There is a report that St. Louis is to be incloied on the west with a belt railway running outtide of the city limits, connecting all tbe roads entenng tbe city from that direction, and also with the Merchants' bridge, that it is hoped will one day span the Mississippi. Tbe belt line will have double track, and will be backed by the company interested in the proposed stock yards, to be located west of the corporation limits. It is said that an effort will be made to constitute St. Louis the great cattle market for the whole Southwest. Tbe scheme is more worthy tthan it w certain of fulfillment.— St. L. Register.

No fact which experience has demonstrated In regard to Hosteller's Stomach Bitters has stronger evidence to support it than this, namely, that this uudlclue of comprehensive uses chocks the formidable and atrocious disease, nor is It less positively established that it Is preferable to the poisons often used to arrest It, since tho medicine contains only salutary initredlents.
