It does seem to us that'this most sensible and needful plan, could be carried out here and at once. DeKalb haa tried it successfully, and would not renounce it for much money. There is no outlay of money required like starting a factory or build- Ing a dam, and delay simply means postponement of a blessing. —One of the most patent things in the world IB that when men run around town slandering their neighbors and insisting that this and that one has] a grudge against them, that they are unworthy of notice. Men of respectabil- ty mind their own business, and have lelther time nor disposition for misrepresenting those among whom they live. They likewise know that ifIhey merit respect, they have It from all who are themselves respectable. Tomorrow Is the anniversary of the acquittal of General Daniel E. Blckles of the murder of Philip B. Key. No trial for murder ever occured in this country, not excepting that of Professor Webster, or the Anarchists, excited such widespread interest, particularly at the south where all sympathy with UeneraJi Sickles, who was ut that timoamemberof Congtew.

Karrow lay where he fell several hours before the fact was known, and friends came for the body.' 1 —Ben Shaw quotes the GAZETTE prediction that there will be great activity here this Spring and thus comments: "About fly time, probably." We can and do forgive the sneer con- •talned In our esteemed brother's re- marfc.but his Ignorance of bugology, never. The Mea of so astute, so profoundly learned a scientist as our confrere [of the Telegraph, which flashes wisdom from its advertisements, even, and infinitely more from its sweat-laden editorial and local lucubrations, flashes which daily light up our own darkness and cause us to receive them with smiles of joy,—the Idea that 6ur brother, of all men, should be so ill acquainted with the habits, customs, practices, language and peregrinations of the fly, as to declare solemnly that It comes at such a season. The activity we speak of Uro. Shaw Is that of saw and hammer and chisel, and. spade and shovel and trowel and all the other accessories to the hum of Industry. When fly time shall really come, the inaecta will not enter here to stay, for they'll not find any of our people quiet long enough to enable them t^ alight upon their bodies; but will betake thsmselree U of yore, ot|t&e qui*t^«r«a»,p**oetul, acdiatsub- «d city of Dlxou.
