The xcursianists arrived homo about 6 'clock bringing glowing accounts of he afternoon's enjoyment. YESTERDAY was bock beer day and r as characterized by an unusual mount of drunkenness on. the street. Ve know that there is a sort of inter* egnum iu city affairs at present, but fter the appointments are made omofrow thero will bo no excuse for allure to enforce the law. The number f persons who _are iu favor of raising ic saloon license to $1,000 and of nforoing the Sunday law against the aloons was largely increased by ostorday's lawlessness.

Louis Is greatly excited over the urohaso "by a syndicate" ot 30 1-2 ores of land on Del mar avenue,in that ity, for $80,000. This seems rather a mild transaction, compared with the joorns at Kansas City and Wichita, where 26 foot front lots are quoted at 125,000. Still, it indicates that St. Louis is looking up. A thousand dol- nrs aii noro for a tract on a fashionable ivenuo indicates that land there is lecoming to* valuable {or agricultural , mi-poses. We rise to remark, however, ,hutno land on a dojirable street m Alton can bo bought for twice that gtiro per acre.

Yesterday, May 1st, was noted as a ay of "liberty," in the broadest sense, u this city and vicinity, in fact the berty degenerated into license haracterlzed by wild excesses in ome portions of the municipality. The eelmgs of law abiding citizens were uti'Bged, drunken men were reeling on many of the streets, the lower part f tho city being especially notorious n this respect. Not only were adults een in a state of beastly intoxication, ut a party of ten boys, all undur 15 ears of age, judging from appearances, ere drunk and collected on Eleventh treet, near Langdon, late in the after, oon.disgracing themselves and greatly nnoyina: the people of the neighbor- ood. A number of children and dults were attracted to the place aud o lobnoxious was the conduct of the ttle inebriates that the police were ent for. This move gave thp alarm nd all the boys left except one who ras so much under the influence of quor as to be helpless. Some kindly isposed gentlemen took the lad homo. In addition to tho instance mentioned bpvo, a gentleman, "who is favor of a ure boom," says: "A brutal and hameful desecration of tho Sabbath ook place yesterday, May 1st, on tho ow head over the river, where a large arty resorted and engage! in chicken ghting aud other so-called sports." .11 such violations of law as those men- .onod above are not only unspeakably epuguant to the feelings of reputable, aw abiding citizens, generally, but tend o bring our city into such disrepute as 111 be an injury to its interest* not uly socially but commercially. THE new Council meets tomorrow (tornoon' when tho appointments of ftioers and committees will be made, od the Mayor will deliver his Inaugural ddross. Advice to Mothers. Mrs. Winslow',8 Soothing Syrup, for hildron teething, is tho presarptiou of no of the best female nurses and phy- oians in tho United Slates, and has oon used for forty yean with never- ailing success by millions of mothers >r their children. During the process f toothing its value is Incalculable. It olioves tho child from pain, euros ysontory and dwrrhma, griping in tho owols, and wind-oolla. By giving oalth to tho child it rests the mother rice 26o a bottle. la 16 in w HWk Hood's Sarsapanlla is peculiar to self and superior to all other prepa- atlons in strength, economy, and uedlclnal merit. 2 UPPER ALTON.

LITERARI CONTEST—The agony is over; tho contest between the College Literary Societies has been fought and tho country is once more saved. Tho College HalUwas filled to its full capae ity with an audience which followed with the closest interest the following programme: Invocation—Rev. Or, Bulkley. Music—By the College Band. DECLAMATIONS. "The Unknown Speaker"—J. Wash. Buck. " The New South"—S. H. Bowyer. Music. I'APERS. "Budget"-Miss Ollie C. Bulk. The ley. Tho "Journal"—Miss Manning Mayfield. . . Music. RECITATIONS.

A. Kendrick. Negative—J. E. Coombs. Tho Judges, who had been selected to )ass upon the merits of the productions, were: Prof. J. H. Collins, .of Springfield: Rev. Wm.

Sigma Phi -Declamation, 84; Paper, 137: Recitation, 96; Oration, 81: Debate, 196. Total, Sigma Phi, 792; Alpha Zeta, 780. This is the third successive year t hat he contest has resulted in favor of the Sigma Phi Society, although it will be seen that a majority of 12 points in , total of 1572 is not a very illustrious ictory. It was not ' 'as deep as a well, nor as wide as a barn door," but it was enough to stimulate the winning society e a jollification meeting in their hall which wus projected well into the following moramg. Tho music by the College Cornet Baud was greatly appreciated. The floral and other favors were listnbuted at the end of the programme ;i very sensible inuoviuien.
