Gazette this morning neglected to tell iU readers that it is a "live, enterprising newspaper." We fear those dear readers will forget that fact unless continually, reminded. That they may not do so, we refrctb, in a purely kind spirit, their memories on the subject. Clotdes-lise Thmt. On Monday night, the prmUes of "Mr. C.V.'. Strong, on Perry street, near Sixth, were visited by parties who carried off a'l the clothes that bad been le t oa the line to dry. Commonly speaking such parties are called thieves. Who they wero his not transpired. It is not probable that Absalom was obliged to use any hair pteparation to force bis hair to grow to such an extreme length as it is said to have attained. In our day, however, people quite frequently find it necessary to call scientific skill to aid them in this respect. Such will find their every wish supplied in "Barrett's Vegetsble Ilair Restorative." ':- : ; DATKNPokT IxpaovKXENTs. The two large extra editions of the Dssiocbat, containing the list of improvements in this city for the past year, having been exhausted, we have this day struck off another, so that the demands of all may be supplied. ' Our people do right to scatter these papers far and wide. Let the people know what Da venport is doing. Wc bare written of Webb's magnificent display of mirrors, his endless Yariety of crockery and table-ware, house-furnishing goods, fanoy articles, birth-day and bridal presents, but choicer and richer than these are hisyur solid silver goods carefully selected and presented to the public at the lowest market prices. Nothing nicer or more appropriate for holiday presents. We advice all to see them, and examine closely. Qiieb Kijd or ScnBSNDBR. The Gazette claims that we surrender because we do not choose to fill np our paper with refutations of its many untruthful boasts. That reminds us of the way in which Johnson surrendered to Sherman at the close of the war. Surrender, eh ? There's no such word in our vocabulary. We rather gness it is not customary for ona who has pinned his an tagonist to tho wall to surrender, unless QazttU tactics are observed. Lira Insubamcb Paid.

That lire and enter prising newspaper (!) the Gazette, has been amusing itself counting the number of ems we publish in our reading columns. Una ble to tell the truth, as usual it cunningly puts down the figures at much less than they really are But that is characteristic of "the euterpriaicg journal," and we have no fault to find. By the way, neighbor, if you have so much leidure, there is a little job we can give you to do that will occupy some of your time. Our boots need blacking bad. AVhat gsy you ? IiiLLiauD TotTBSAMiNT. We learn fro n the Execotivo Committee of the Iowa Billiard Society that the time for holding the State Tournament has been fixed for the second week in January, commencing on Tuesday the 7th and continuing three days. Daring, the tournament the championship of the State will be played for, tho victor will take the Golden Cue, which it is estimated will cast about two hundred dollars. Other prizes amounting to several hundred dollars will also be played for. The following noted players have signi fied their intention of beine present and giving an exhibition of their skill: J. W. Coon, formerly cf Davenport, the Great Western Billiardist; Henry Rbines, the Champion of Illinois, Tom Foley, the ex- Champion of Illinois ; Phil. Tieman, of Cin cinnati, who recently played for the Cham- pionship of America; and llyman Brans. wick of St. Louis. - Arrangements will be made for holding the tournament in Metropolitan Hall, go that all who may wish to attend can have an opportunity of witnessing the various games. The presence ef so many of the most skillful players in the country, will undoubtedly make the attendance unusually large, as the playing will be most interesting. Let the best players in the State prepare for the honors of the Golden Cue. Th Bcrli.ngtok Ssssatios. We have just learned the following additional -partic ulars of the Moore vs. Smith alias Epstein hooting affair at Burlington. The woman's real name is Shafer. She kept a boar dine house in Kooxville, Tenn., and Epstein bad a store in the same place. She learned that he bad made remarks derogatory to her character, and gave him to understand that her Southern chivalry would not stand it. Ue made himself scarce in that vicinity and came to Rjck Island, where he had a broth er living, who has since been informed of the shooting aerape, and is now with him at Burlington. Her woman's vengeance was not appeased by his absence ; she longed for blood ; her's was a hatred that laughed at distance. She followed him, and with the duloet tones ef forgiveness, and .the tears of injured innocence, prevailed upon htm to return with her and mend matters. Arriving at Muscatine he "smelted woole n" and decamped for Washington. With cun ning philosophy she waited his return, and again they proceeded South, it undoubtedly being her object to get him as far South as possible, and then satisfy her thirst for blood. Fearing her victim might escape, the deed was probably anticipated at Burlington, although she persistently denies all knowledge of the transaction, and by keep ing her own counsel, may, by the technical ities of the law, get clear, as the proof is j "somewhat circumstantial," I DA DtsTticT Cocbt. The attention of the ourt is still occupied 'with the criminal docket. One case has been tried to-day, that of James King," indicted for selling a diseased horse! , The verdict of the jury was "not guilty!" . -. "1 "r. The esse of John Bailey and Peler Ger-mond took up the balance of the day; - The Grand Jury: indicted them "for breaking and entering," "for entering dwelling," and "for larceny."- V,' i i ,i The case of Cyrus J. Briggs, for seduction, did not come to tril. Briggs settled with the prosecuting witness by- paying $250, and costs, also the prosecuting attorney's fee of 50, whereupon the ease was dismissed. ' ' "."'' . The : case of David ' Auerock, "all about ' a rat-trap," was dismissed, not however until the grave barristers had extracted considerable amusement from It. It seems a woman, a neighbor of Auerock's, set a rat-trap ia her cibbage patch for dogs, and that Auerock's canine ra unfortunate enough to put bis foot into it and bring it home a clear case of larceny. Sho went for her trap and on being refused entered a complaint before the Justice against-Auerock for stealing the trap. The Justice found the party guilty and fined hiui Jl. The case was appealed and came up to-day. Mr. Llubbell, counsel for defendant, offered to plead guilty provided the dog be substituted for Auerock. His honor thought that "eternal justice" hardly demanded of the court to incur a ten dollar attorney's fee and costs, for a one dollar rat-trap case, and ordered it dismissed. ' , ... . . t Irvisq Association. The young men comprising this Society, had a lively discussion last evening. The question under consideration was "Jietolved, that the people of the United States owe as much to the settlers of Jamestown as to the Puritans." Messrs. Waterman, Thompson, Goode and J. R. Austin spoke in tho affirmative, while Messrs. F. W. Austin, Young, Fenno and Lowry argued in the negative. The judges at the conclusion decided in favor of the negative. A large audienee was present, listening to the several arguments with considerable interest. That's Right. 'Squire Dittoa has bough a fine lot on Perry street, above Fifteenth at the edge of the old fair grounds. In the spring he contemplates erecting thereon a snug dwelling house for himself and family.: ; Riveb. The St. Louis Republican reports a most disastrous conflagration in the town of Louisiana, Mo. One entire square, on which were located all of the tobacco factories, was destroyed. The St Louis Democrat, of Saturday, says : "The Northern Line is played oot for the season. The last packet arrival, Uawkeye.is laid up, and the company won't bind themselves to send hence one other packet this year, except to Alton slough." The New Boston left for Ft. Madison this afternoon. She look all the freight she could carry. The Savanna will be the paok-et fcr to-morrow morning. The Reserve has passed the lower rapids and gone to St. Loui., where she will be laid up during the winter. " The Minnesota is now at LeClaire. She will go upon the ways and undergo thorough repairs during the winter. The Dubuque and Muscatine are now up the river. They are expected at our levee to-morrow morning. This is their last trin for the season. If they are able to pass the lower rapids, they will go into winter quarters at St. Louis, if not, they will select some point above the rapids. All other boats arj making their way down the river as fast as possible. Those that are unable to pass the lower rapids are going into winter quarters at favorable points above. The only boats left will be the New Boston and Savanna, the regular packets between this point and Fort Maui son. They will run until the river closes The St. Paul Pioneer, speaking of the riv er says : The oflicersof the different boats are eet ting their books in order and preparing to settle up, as tne close ot navigation may come any day. Business, however, will be pushed to tne utmost limit, and nothing but actual ice wilt stop the trado and travel by way of the river. , Stephen's Fobd Bkidgk. Speaking of this structure the Clinton Herald of Satur day says : . "The bridge over the Wapsie at Stephen's Ford, six miles from De Wilt", owned by the tv spsipmecon .Bridge Company (Neafie & Ankeny, of the Clinton Bridge Company, builders,) ia going rapidly forward. The sub-contract for the mason-work has been let to Ed. Buell, of Walnut Jrove. The contract for building this bridge was let to Neafio & Ankeny on the Slst ult. On the same day, the sub contract for pawing the lumber n as let to French & Davieo, of Da venport, This contract, for 73,000 feet of dimension lumber, 80,000 feet of it over twenty feet long, was sawed and delivered on the grounds within six days from com- mencement of sawing. - Ibe delivery of the lumber, and two hundred perch of stone was closed on Saturday, the foundations put in, and oue span of the bridge erected, which we consider remarkably quick work. The. directors of the bridge were on the grounds on Friday, gave a satisfactory estimate of material delivered and wotk per formed, and paid the estimate in cash. This is is to be a lattice bridge, two hundred feet long, seventeen feet roadway, and twenty feet high. The contract calls for the com pletion of the bridge on the first of January. lobs ; but tne contractors expect to com plete it by the 8th of December. r Real Estate Transfers.

The latest number of the Bazar his the fu21qw? tng in regard to the latest style of hats : Tbs round hat for this season is tbo meretit apology for a hat, but with the pres. ent style of wtaring the hair hats must be small in order to be becoming. The Shape is as small as can be worn, and - the light trimming does not detract from Its jiunty appearance. Low crowns and rolling brims prevail, shaped in a variety of ways. The brim may be depressed in front and back, or turned up at one side or behind, or reversed alike all round. High crowns, square and slanting, are displayed, bat one seiddm meets them on the street. Velvet, plush, and felt are the best materials.): A few black and bronzed straws are worn, but leghorn and ctinolioe are laid aside for the present. 4 Astrakhan, sealskln.and chinchilla hats are made to wear with paletots of those furs. s Scarfs of velvet and salin, trimmed with narrow pipings or folds, and fringed at the ends, depend from the back. Black velvet is trimmed with white satin piping, and white with b'ack. In others there is a tendency to preserve one tone throughout the whole hat, all the materials velvets, feathers and lce agreeing in color. Skating toqueis ate made of -Astrakhan, otter, and chinchilla. For toe promenade we have Hungarian bats of er mine and grebe. The turned-up brims of turbans are quite broad in front, sloping narrower toward the back, 'A pompon of leathers cr a gilt spray ia the only orna tnent. .. . i It is the arrangement and variety . of trimmings that produce the novelties of the season. There are new feathers, -new flowers, new laces and new ornamentsjof jet, gold and Roman pearl. Instead of willow feathers and long ostrich .plumes, we have short ostrioh tufts, silver heron feathers, the Swiss bird grebe, pheasants' plumes, and, prettier than all others, the delicate marabouts in tufts and fringes tipped with gilt and jot. Tie new velvet flowers are tastefully mingled with gilt Velvet leaves are, veined with gold, and th;stles of dowpy marabouts are covered with a filigree network. Scarlet berries with bronzed autumn leaves, make graceful diadems. Sprays of coral are ellectirely introduced into evening hats. Parma violets marguerites, and panaies and wreaths of hawthorn and clematis are exquisitely moulded.j' : The attempt to have materials and trimmings of a uniform color has led to the introduction of lace of various colors. These laces have a tawdry appearance, and are as much to be deprecated as the profuse use of gilt. One of our most reliable milliners boasts that not a spray of gilt appears on the bonnets made at bar establishment. Fastidious people' avoid it altogether. We advise that it be sparingly and judiciously used.? A small gilt spray or leaf, a gilt- tipped marabout fringe, or pendants of gilt limes on a bonnet, are pretty and in good taste; but the broad bandeaux ef yellow gilt, the dusters of grapes and berries, and fringes of bullion, are coarse and objectionable. Jet is carved, and formed into bandeaux and pendants. The cetd jet is not used except on illusion. Small ornaments of Roman pearl fasten white lace over-strings. A drop-trimming to correspond surrounds the edge of the bonnet. The Spanish veil is specially suited to tbe ftnehon, but is worn with bonnets of all shapes. It was originally a straight scarf falling over the chignon, and fastened at the throat with long flowing strings. Now several forms are given it. Some are cut in a direct line from shoulder to shoulder, while others are pointed at the back.' Tulle, dotted with chenille or embroidered with beads is used for square veils. Colored net and blonde veils are worn long. Guipure and chantilly are suitable laces for heavy fulls over tha chignon. The mantilla veil has Ion? tabs in front, hanging loose, or caught together by a spray or btuati bow or ribbon. Another style laps in front, like the Marie Antoinette fichu. Round blonde veils, to match the color of the bonnet, are fastened near the front and thrown backward. These are graceful, and serve for drapery, which the new shapes require. The stiff brim and flat crown need not be softened and relieved by tulle and lace. Round veils, with long tabs fastened behind, are worn with bats. Of the colored lace veils the Bismarck is prettiest. Puffed trimmings of tulle and blonde on round hats have long ends that serve for veils. Wonderful Indeed is the result of a single application of the Lone Star Liniment for cuts, bruises, sprains, rheumatism, swellings upon man, and for spavins, founders, ringbone, scratches, ic, upon horses, it acta like magic; indeed its equal is not to be found, and the price of it is lower than any other.
