MR. HENRY ROLF, while working in his shop, one day last week, cut his knee with a hand ax, which caused him to quit work. We are sorry he met with such an accident.

THE WHEAT CROP. -- From what information we are able to gather, we are inclined to think that we shall be blessed with a fine crop of wheat. Many of our agricultural friends tell us that their prospects for a large yield was never better at this season of the year. We trust that their fondest hopes may be fully realized.

BALLOU’S MONTHLY FOR APRIL. -- The April number of this superb family magazine is already issued, and contents such as will please every one, old and young. Thomas & Talbot, 63 Congress street, Boston, are the publishers, but Ballou’s Magazine is for sale at all the periodical depots in the county at 15 cents per copy, or $1.50 per year.

J. B. ROBINSON and J. C. NOELL, Esqs., left Perryville on Saturday last, for Marble Hill, in Bolinger county, to attend circuit court at that place, which began on Monday. We are requested by Mr. Robinson to say that those having business with him, in his absence, could have same attended to by getting Mr. Seibel to write to him, or doing so themselves.

ROBERT N. DEAN, Sheriff of this county, edits a column of the UNION this week. His articles, treating upon the subject that they do, are quite interesting, and those who are in search of land, at reasonable prices, had better commence hunting up their greenbacks and have them handy on the second day of April term of the circuit court for Perry county.

A LIBRARY ASSOCIATION. -- Reader, would not the organization of a Library Association in Perryville be a good and praiseworthy institution? The object of such an association is mutual improvement. There are many places in this State which have such societies and we are satisfied they are not of any disadvantage to any community, and we should be glad to see such an organization formed here.
