We hope that he will be welcomed in this capacity at most cny ■i time during the next ten days.  —Messrs. Eustace, Barge & Dixom removed their law office last week, from their old quarters in Exchange Block, to (rooms over Tillson's Drug Store, on Galena street. They occupy the whole floor, .lad have fitted up its three apartments in fine style.  —We go toiprcBS before the assembling «f the meeting at the Court House, to be addressed by Gov. Oglesby. A large gathering was in prospect, as eyery ouo in these parts enjoys t® tho fullest extent'the impetuous and vehiement oratory of fthe old sol-dier.  —The parents^ of Sylvester Trestrail received a diaipatch on Monday night that he was again dangerously sick. 3?hey took the first train for Port Scott, where he is lying, reaching that point yesterdcy. He had nearly recovered from his late sickness, but was seized with a relapse, and is probably lower than before.  —We hear that a little boy-two years old, son of Mr. Griffin, residing on Mr. Fair-child's farm in, Bradford, ie lying at the point of death from a slight wound in the hand. He cut his finger through one of the nails on Thursday. All eftbrts to check the blood was for hours unavailing, and when stopped left the child weakjind tortured by frequent spasms. The blood lost is said to have filled a two-quart vessel.  —On Monday night of last week, Mr. Wm. Phillips, residing some six miles south of Ashton, had his team and wagon stolen under rather novel circumstances. He had been to Chicago and his boy drove to town to meet him on the midnight train, and while in waiting, returned to the hitching place to see to the team, and found them gone. When Mr. Phillips landed, and was apprised of the mysterious disappearance he at once procured a lantern, and on foot started in pursuit' All .alght long he followed the trail by the light of the lantern, and at last, about 7 a. m., found tlie team at Jefferson Grove, hitched to a tree in the timber. No clue was, hewever, discoveied of the thief. We undoEStand that during tlie same week, some two or three horses also disappeared from tte east part of the County, without leaving any clue as to tlieir destination. The signs would indicate the existence ol a.gang somewhere.  —Wc have received several letters, suggesting that the time we ijive the farmers, in our proposition tor ;prize essays on the iiubiects of wintering stock and agriculture, is too brief, owing to the pressure of farm vi'ork at this sea.son of the year. We have therefore concluded to extend the time for the articles on agriculture to December 1st, and on wintering stock to November 1st.— Wc hear of several who will contribute articles on one or both subjects, and wc find tliat our plan is meeting with general fiivo-among the farmers. There is no good rear son why the farmers of Lee county should not be greatly profited by the discussion and expression we solicit Few farmers, here or elsewhere, find in the agricultural publications exactly the points suggested by tiheir own experience or adapted to their locality and tho circumstances ot the community. We o))en our columns and ask contributions which shall instruct the farmers of Lee county on the subject of agriculture in Lee county, regardless of farming in Maine, Texas, or Oregon. The prizes we oiler are certainly some compensation for the effort, while the practical benefits ilowing therefrom arc beyond valuation.  '.From oar Dally of Tuesday.)  THE FAIR PROGRAMME.  The prospects for the fair arc now A'cry encouraging. The weather signsar« propitious and the ijrounds arc in goml shape. In addition to the dining hall whick will be used for Art display, the society lias erected a large double building to be known as "Omnibus Hall," and some sixty cattle stalls and an abundance of pens. The accommodations are ample for cvhibitors, and there is now every indication of a large display in all the deimrtmcnts.  Yesterday General Superintendent Butler, together with superintendents of the various classes, were busy as bees getting things ia order,' while officers Van Epps, Little and Ayres were engaged in arranging matters for business.  To-day will be occupied in making entries and placing things in readiness for exkibi-tion. All entries will be made at Soore tary Little's ofHce on the grounds. No charge will be made for entries in atjy of the department«.  To-morrow will be cn active day. The programme is not yet perfected. We are assured, however, thut an exciting entertainment will be the order of the whole day. The address by Hon. John Dement, will be delivered ebout two o'clock, and ^General Oglesby, w>fao will be on the grounds, can probably be (prevailed upon to address the gathering. A wheelbarrow race, after the most approved fashion, and a trotting race, will alsocomc off in the course of the afternoon.  On Thursday, the Sterling G«ards, consisting of-eeventy members, wiU parade, accompanied by the Sterling band of twelve pieces. The Dixon Fire Companies, it is expedted, will join in the parade, making together a displey not often surpassed.  It is ifeared that the balleon ascension which will be by iiir the grandest thing of the kind ever seen in these ¡parts, cannot come off until Saturday, owing to the time necessary to make the preparations to launch the mammoth concern.  I  PERSOHAL.  We were glad to see Deacon Ely back on our 8t»cts last week, after an extended visit in the East, looking as congenial as ever.— His healtli is greatly improved.  The birds of the air think of migrating, Ben Shaw and Ferris Finch are nftor thcin wiih shooting irons.  Mr, Sampson, the manager of tho Nachu-sa, returned to his post last week after an abs(M»co of some weeks to the eastward.  James A. Hawley left town on Monday, to attend the Masonic Grand Lodge, of which he is an officer, at its session in Chicago this week.  L. A. Divine, member of the State Board •of Equalization, is atttaiding the annual meeting of the Boani at S{Mnngficld.  In the Stephenson County Circuit Court last Week, the divorce suit of Mead vs Mead, taken on a change of vcnno from this county, was decided m favor of tho complainant, Mrs. Mead, and a decreo of divorce "from bed and board," granted.  NEW TAILORS.  —Messrs. Tisc^endorff & .Hanlon have opened rooms in Exohango block, for merchant tailoring wo:Sc. Mr. TlschcndorflF was for twelve months the cutter and fitter with Arnold & Bro., and Mr. Hanlon, tho' a recent comer, is woU known as a first-class workman. Persons in want of good work, will do welt to romenber this now firm.  NEW QROCERK.  Tho many ftioDds of Mr. A. U. Hazen, will be gfaul >to íMrn that he has opened a grocery store on Galena street near bridge. As <ofinaoessity his establishment ie fitted up in 'Iho »neatest shape, and everything is in perfeot order for business. His stock is ftill amd complete, comp^qg eyerythiaje: in the line of groceries and pto-visions, »nd tiatfe opens with most flattering prospccts. He adopts the cash plan strictly, which <^Iicy alone entitles him to patronage. iSonember the place, and giye him a call.  horrible accident at the dei^ot.  On Monday afternoon last, about tlie hour of six, 3Ir. Thomas Kitchen, a faithful employe at the XortU-Western depot in this city, came to his death in a laost sliocking and horrible manner. At the time named, an extra was switching on the side track, and Kitchen, in obedience to orders from the brakeman on the train, ran between the moving cars to uncouple them, when his foot caught in tlie frog of the switch and threw him down lengthwise upon tlie rail. Before the train could be stopped all of the wheels on the side of one car passed over him, and the truck of the next stopped on his mangled remains. A more horrible sight could hardly be conceived. From head to fool scarcely a vestige remained to remind one of the man. His skull was broken into fragments, and every bone in his frame seemed to be broken or ground to «plinters.  In the evenin.e; an inquest was held oyer the remains, and tlie jury returned a verdict in accordance with the above facts.  Tommy Kitclien was a sttady and fallh-tul hand, and for years he has held the place of station lusn at the Norlh-Western 10 the satisfirclion of every one. He leaves .i wife without children to mourn his terrible fate. The sympathies of the coinmunl-iv will be wUh her in lier tonwv.  (Vrom our dally of Wedaegay.)  l^iesday was, as is the first day of Fairs in general, almost wholly occupied in entering articles and arranging them for exhibition. i'Up to two o'clock the display in some departments was excellent, while in others things were coming in rather slowly. The stock department in particular was full, and already presented a most attractive view for tke admirer of pure blood and fine stock. CoL May, of Rochelle, drove in a herd of blood led Devons, as comely and fine a^ ever .gave milk, with horns as clear and smoetli, almost, as pearl. Samuel Dysart, of.Franklin, had some twelve head of his short horns in stall, and Mr. W. H. Hansen had several of the .same breed. The hogs on exhibition already number dozens of almost every variety—'the Poland China and Berkshire, however, predominating.— there are also quite a number of beautiful shcQ» on the grounds. The machine department is well filled, an<l farm products begin to make conslderaWe sIioav.  wednesday.  This afternoon the puize for ladies' eques-trianship will be awarded, the ride occurring about two o'clock. A trot will also take,jolace in the course of the afternoon, aud>the anticipated wheelbarrow race will also iMTobably be in the programme.  Hon. John Dement will deliver the annual address about three o'clock. The amphitheatre, in front of which is the speaker's stand, offers ampje room for all, and ladies .can attend with assurance that com fortaoie seats await them. Should the day be favorable the attendance will be large.  —The Baptist church liave fitted up a very -commodious and convenient dining hall on «he grouuds, where the hungry can met a meal as fresh and satisfactory as at a hotel. People on tho grounds should remember this. thursday.  Besides tlie parade of the Fire Companies and the Sterling Guards, a trot for a purse of $200 will come off tomorrow afternoon "Conio Chief," Nancy Doud," and "Roya Oak," will trot, and others may yet be entered, as entries can be made at any time before the trot takes place.  —Mr. Henry Strong, at the bridge, Ibund a key on Tuesday which will doubtless be greatly missed by the owner. It resembles a safe key. It may be found at the toll house. ____  —Mr. J. E. Baker has disposed of his agricultural business to Messrs. Green & Brooks, men who thoroughly understand farm machinery, and will give good satisfaction to the patrons of the establishment. See Bilker's notice elsewhere.  —Prof. Dow, the writing teacher, closed his labors in Dixon last week, after four months successful teaching. He has taught four diflerent classes, and throughout gave perfect sati.sfaclion. He is a fine peiinian and a popular teacher. Success go with liini.  ---Mn ■ » --------  —Mr. S. S. Dodge has retired from the firm of Dodge it Ivling, leaving the latter gentleman proprietor. Mr. Dodge contemplates a trip to California, but will probably remain among us several weeks before la king his d(,'partnre. We regret to lose him from the business circle of Dixon, and hope that fortune may direct him again to take stock in our city. Mr. Kling is a. «killful jeweler and watchniaker and reliable man with wliom to deal. "\Ve wihI; liim .succès in hi.s sin!;le-]j!i!!ded undertaking.  THEATRE.  The. Seiden Irwin Theatrical Combination will poifMm in Union Hall every evening during the Fair. The celebrated artists, Mr. and Mrs. Seiden Irwin, arc at the head of thk popular compan^y, and supported by an .array of talented actors seldom surpassed on the theatrical stage. Last week they jjcrfonned in Rockford nightly to crowded houses, and the commendations they ■ received were of the heartiest and most enthusiastic character. Their pieces are of tlie 'most popular and difficult, lind are put qpon tho Btnge in the inost aetistic manner and with full appointments. Their performance is chaste and elegant, and we be8i»eak ffer them crowded houses at the hands of the amusement patrons of our city. Go, by all means, and see them.  REAL ESTATE" TRANSACTIONS.

Madume Parepa Rosa left $50,000 in Chicago on mortgagee,  According to the late ccnsus the population of Rockford is 11,050.  Gustavus Kooraer is announced as a candidate for the United States Senate in thi State.  A boy named Daniel Higgins, aged 10, hung himself in Peoria Saturday evening, with a dog-oliain.  TIic pro^wietors of a Michigan watch fac. tory offer to remove to Galesburg, if that city will donate $100,000.  There are in the State 250 lodges of Good Templass, and 74 Imlges have surrendered their charters during tho year.  Priitooton has a population of 4,240, and the township 4,305, according to tho lato census report.  The Agricultural Fair of tho Earlvillc Park Association will be held in tho Park, Octfliber, 12th, 18th and 14th.  Alt Moline, III, a young lady of 28 ywrs deliberately sprung head foremost under the'Cars, which killed her Instantly.  Illinois has grown more rapidly in population, during the past ten years, than any oiDlier State in the Union. Its increase is over 700,000.  The luneral of Burton Ayres, one of tho (pioneers of LaSalle county, was attended •by an Immense concocree of people at La-iSalle. The deceas<Hl surveyed the city of iPeru.  Dr. Horatio Xcwhall died at Galena on September 10. He »ettled in that place in 1827, and edited tiM ¡first paper ever published there—tlio Miner's Jourml, which was started In 1833.  The total value «if real and personal property in the State, ¡as shown by tho returns of all tho counties except Alexaij^ler, is ♦475,954,035. This amount is $10,954,724 less than the assessed value in 1809.  A Mrs. Cilsa Rome was arrested at Decatur, and carried'back to Nashville, Tctiii., on tho charge of jioisoning her husband in the latter place one year ago. She has a son, who is the Cashier of the First National Bank of Nashville, and a daughter who is the wife of a Tennessee Congressman.  The Lower House of the next Legislature is to sit next winter in the new church building of the Second Presbyterian Society in Springfield, tho accommoilatlons of the old hall being too Umited. The Seriate will occupy the old Representatives' hall, and the Supreme Court will sit in the Senate cham ber. ,,  On the morning of tho 30th ult, four pris-nners in tho ¡jail at Rockford made good their escape. Wood, the late manipulator and mutilator of tho First National Bank in that city; Morgan, tho forger," Fox, tho horsethief, and Stewart and McMalion burglars, are-the names of the ex-prison era and from their various callings produced a combination of talent and ingenuity worthy the consummation of such a glorious scheme of liberty. Four large iron bars were found sawed through at the bottom of the cell door, which unablcd them to swing back a section of it a(nd crawl tliroiigli. This ae complished, they made a rope f)i bed blank' ets, and, cutting through the eave roof-windows, descended to terra Anna and liberty. The night was dark and greatly facilitated their escape. It is thought that months must have botai reiiuired to saw the.sc bars through.  Grundy county has had a social sensation. A Kendall county man eloped with an In diana man's wi(e in June, brought lier to Morris and iboarded with her at a farmer's a few miles from that city, where their fe licity was suddenly broken up on the 2d inst., by the appearance of tho wronged husband. The truant wife was captured, and her paramour effected his escape. The husband is in pursuit.  Tho Whiteside Chronidc says that on last Thursday three fires were started in broad daylight on the premises of John M, Gait, Sterling. Jim Morrison, recently returned from the Pcnilentiary, was arrested on suspicion of being the author of the fire.s, He was seen about the premises the day the fire occurred, and actctl in a manner to warrant his arrest.— Whitesule Bentind.  ^pwiai lotirisi.  SAVED FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS  By insuring in the "Republic." All other companies discount their losses, tho Republic docs not, but pays iuimcdiutoly.  "Wo have roceivod from tho Republic Insurance Company of Chicago, Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000) in cash, being in full for our claim, without tho customary discount, which would have boon $500. The company issues a cash policy ; having no time clause, and its superior value is aptly Illustrated in our case. Wu are also happy to add that the company had $10,000 rc-in-surance, making the not loss to them $20,-000." JOTIN V. FaUWKUí & Co.  Chicago, September 20,1870. J. B.

LIFE AND HEALTH.  Some two weeks since wo published quito an extended notice of a work, entitled "Our Homo Physician," which since that timo has come under our oye. Wo have scanned its contents, ami can but pronounce it an excellent work for tho family. It contains 1,007 pages of matter, almost any one of which is worth tho cost of tho book. People scarcely realize how ignorant thoy are of tho simple laws of health and tho do mands of tho system which they prize so highly. This work is a complete treaties on Anatomy and Hygiene, gives tho truo methods of treatment in cases of accident to any part of tho body or derangement of tho sys torn, prescribes antidotes for poison, tho laws of health in tho rearing of families, and meets tlSo want ol every mother. It Is an excellent work; and should bu road and owned lor relerenco by everybody who appreciates health, comfort and happiness.— The author is Dr. G. 31. Beard, ii Iccturer in the University of Now York.  Mr. French, representing tho publishers, W. T. Keener »fc Co., of Chicago, is now canvassing our city for this work.

Quaker  GRAND BALLOON ASCENSION,  In the magnificent balloon "Union," in which the daring aeronaut, Mr. II. L. Den-niston, will make one of his magnHicent and terrific balloon ascensions, from the Fair Ground.s, in Dixon, during the Fair, provided tho weather is favorable. The mammoth balloon "Union," is capable of holding 100,000 cubic feet of a.scending power, and the largest balloon ever inflated in alio world—being 00 feet in diameter, and 95 feet in heigiit when inflated—twelve times the ca¡)acIty of tlie one used by Prof^ Wise, in 1852—to sec which is one of the most grand, sublime and novel sights ever witne.ssei. The balloon will be inflated by a ni w, quick and exciting process (invented by 3Ir. J. M. Kinney,) consuming only 40 minutes time in calm weather, to fill this monster ¡erial ship. When inflated, it rc-fiuires the cf)nibin('d etrorts of 30 slout, men to retain it upon terra fmira, when proi)cr-ly filled. Do not fail to see the leronaiil take his place in the slender wicker ear, and hear the words, 'iet go, all," firevious to taking night into the fathomless realms of space. ■  Gents Undershirts tin ct McNamara's.  and Drawers at Aus-  BRINGING UP THE REAR,  Requires a strong force, to be sure, so look out all of you, who arc fond of rear guards, and take notice of what is coming now.
