National Hoi iday, the 4th of July. The
time will soon be here and if a celebra
tion is intended it is time to go to work.
From our south side correspondent, we
learn that the folks on tho fouth side of
the nver contemplate "enthusing" on
their own hook. Would it not be well
to join and have a rousing old time. We

our office, that is anxious to scream. .

We took a trip last week down to
the shores of the 'Old Muddy,"' the

improvement over the old way travel-

R. S. Ervio, Esq.j of this city, will
deliver a lecture which he has written
with considerable care, in several ef the
cities and towns of this state this sum
mer. The titlo of his lecture is, UA
reply to Ingersoll from the Standpoint of
a Man of the World," and it is intended,
not so much to refute the teaching of
Ingersoll by argument as by appeal to
the passions and sympathies of his hear
ers. Mr. Ervin is a young man possess
ing a geod deal of pluck and energy and
is rather pleasing in his style of delivery.
His manner plainly indicates that he has
given a good deal of attention to rhetoric
and elocution, and not without profit
