C. H. EDDLEMON. -- We have just recieved [sic] a letter from our old friend C. H. Eddlemon. He is now a resident of Nevada City, in the State of Nevada. He has gone into the milling business. We hope he may be successful in his new home and business.

THE ELECTION on Saturday last passed off quietly, and but a small vote was polled. Brazeau township held no election at all, and it seems but a very little interest was manifested in regard to who should be elected. There were three candidates in the field, of the three John H. Simpson was elected county surveyor to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of A. M. McPherson.

AND STILL THEY GO. -- Almost every day wagons pass through town bound for some of the lower counties of the State. On Sunday last a number of emigrants passed through town on their way to Stodard county. That county is, at this time, receiving a heavy emigration, and we should not be surprised if it does not outstrip most of the counties, as to population, in a very short time.

DOERR & BROTHERS -- The business stand on the northeast corner of the public square, belonging to Phillips’ estate, has been very neatly fitted up, and Messrs. Doerr & Brothers transferred their large stock of merchandize from their old stand on Wednesday to the Phillips business house, and are now at home, and ready to wait on customers. They inform us that they do not intend to be undersold, but will sell their goods at the lowest living prices.
