It now looks as if the Bourbons rn Congress were about to back down from their unavailing efforts to load down the appropriation bills with political riders.  Information from New York gives it as a fact that Tammany has resolved upon David Davis and Thomas lien drieks as the Democratic ticket for 1880. By this ticket Tammany hopes to carry New York, several Western and Northwestern States, aud possibly Maine and California.  ILUSOn JUDICIARY.  Millirem* and Cl rent! #«dgw Riveted on the Md Inst.  [From the State Journal.]  Below is a complete list of the Supreme and Circuit Judges chosen at the judicial election in this State, last week, which, with the two Supreme Judges holding over, presents a full roster of the Judiciary of the State: First District — Juun ll. Mulkey (Dem.)  Second District — John Scolfield (Dem.)  The Zulu war is no nearer aterrni nation than it was two months ago The British have an army of 30,000 men in the field and are advancing into the enemy’s country by slow approaches. The campaign is proving a very costly one both in men and money.  The New York correspondent of the Chicago Journal reports a very decided improvement in general business in that city. The same encouraging condition is reported in Boston and Philadelphia, and, as far as Chicago is concerned, the general state of trade aud the outlook for business is exceedingly flattering. All the signs point to an era of better times.  The Chicago Journal says it is tho intention and desire of the Adjutant Genera] of Illinois to keep the number of effective men in the organized State militia down to the 8,WA) authorized by law, and he has issued an order to this effect; but there is a great pressure for authority to raise new com panics, and he is, in consequence’ much embarrassed. However, it is his purpose to protect and encourage ihe present organizations as much as possible.  Third District—John M. Scott (Rep.)  j M. Walker (Dem.)  Fourth District—l’mkney  The funeral of Hon. Lucien King, ex-me rn ber of the State Senate, took place at Kane, Greene count}*, on Sunday. Abont ‘5,000 persons were pressed. The procession, in double column of carnages, reached from the churc h to the cemetery,one mile. Besides these, large numbers attended on foot, including the long file of Masons from Jerseyville, Carrollton and Kane lodges. Mr. King was an old and honored citizen. During the war he served as Captain in the Union Army.  Washington specials say that Mr Edmunds* speech on the Test-Oath Repeal Bill, on Friday last, produced a most remarkable effect, being nothing less than a demonstration to the Democrats that their test-oath bill was so defective that they themselves could not afford to indorse it. He made this so clear that Mr. Bayard moved to recommit the bill, in order that these gra v e defects pointed out bv the Republicans might be removed, but this wa* defeated and it was then passed in its imperfect form with the full expectation that it will be vetoed.  Fifth District—A. M. Craig (Dem.) Sixth District—Benj. R. Sheldon  (Rep.)  Seventh District— T. Lyle Dickey (Dem.)  CIRCUIT JUDOES.  First Circuit—D. J. Baker, Rep; O. A. Harker,* Rep; D. M.

State Superintendent James P.Slade, of Illinois, bas issued a circular giving full instructions in regard to the next examinations for Suite certificates. These examinations will be held this year on August 25, 36 and 27, at Chicago, Freeport, Galesburg, Jacksonville, Champaign, Alton and Centralia. It is evident from the regulations instituted that the Superintendent aims to have all the proceeding? fair and reasonable. If county anti city Superintendents and school principals will co-operate with him, these examinations may be made to serve an excellent purpose in raising the professional standard throughout the State. It is to be hoped that they will send for this circular, and that teachers who intend to make teaching their life work will enter those examinations and encourage others to do so. Since the law in this State is now .so peremptory in requiring teachers, as an essential to the validity of their contracts, to have, at the time of making a contract to teach, a certificate good for the entire term of that contract, it does seem to be worth the necessary effort for every professional teacher ta procure a State certificate ; mid so be don© with the disagreeable necessity of submitting again and again to examinations by the County Superintendent. The lawyer passes his examination for admission to the bar once for all. And it is intended bf these State examinations to place leachers on a similar professional footing. If our ablest teachers will set an example in this matter, our State certificates may be made extremely valuable.—Chicago Journal.  Madison County Mutual Horse Thief Geteetive Society.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
