JOHN B. ROBINSON, ESQ., is now proprietor of a horse and a bran[d] new buggy.

GEO. B. SAWYER, ESQ., of Brooklyn, new York, was in town this week on business.

JOS. C. KILLIAN, ESQ., is making preparations to erect a fine brick residence on his property near his mill.

A SUBSTANTIAL plank fence is to be built around the Perryville Public School building. This is a sensible move.

SICKNESS. -- Some sickness is reported in our county, and the flux seems to be the worst. Several persons have died from the effects of it.

THE PERRYVILLE MILLS has been undergoing repairs during the past few weeks, and we understand that Mr. Schindler will be ready to grind in a few days.

COLLECTOR’S NOTICE. -- In another column of to-day’s paper will be found an advertisement from John C. Doerr, Collector for this county, giving the times and places he will meet the tax-payers. Don’t fail to read the notice.

COUNTY COURT will be in session next week, it being the regular August term. Mr. Robert N. Dean will sell on Tuesday, the 2d day of the term, several tracts of land, and those wishing to invest in that kind of property had better attend the sale.

STATE UNIVERSITY. -- By reference to another part of the paper will be found an advertisement from this Institution of learning. It will be seen that Perry county is entitled to send to the departments of the State University at Columbia or Rolla five students for the term of forty weeks.

KOCH’S HOUSE. -- The brick work of this gentleman’s house is finished, and Mr. Nabert, our efficient tinner commenced putting on the tin roof last Monday. Mr. John B. Gotto done the brick work, and Kiefner and Tarrillion are doing the carpenter work. This building is 41 x 44 feet and 29 feet high. When finished it will be a nice house.

TO BE CONSTRUCTED. -- The stockholders of the Chester and Tamaroa and Chester and Iron Mountain rail roads have consolidated as the Iron Mountain, Chester and Eastern railroad, and have elected a board of directors for the ensuing year. We understand that it is the intention of the company to push the Chester and Iron Mountain road through rapidly to completion. It is stated that about forty miles of this road is graded. Ere many months have passed in to oblivion, the iron horse will wend its way through a portion of our county.
