The Illinoian Jacksonville, IL
April 2, 1842

letters from Texas
the fire in New Orleans

Mr Lucas:-Having seen my name announced in your last paper, as a candidate for a seat in the next Legislature, I beg for leave, through the same medium, to return my acknowledgements to those of my friends who have tendered me the nomination, for the high estimation they have placed upon my abilities. But my private business, together with a consciousness that there are others in the Whig party in Morgan County, more competent to serve them than myself, compels me to withdraw from the canvass at present.
Yours, &c.
JOHN T CASSELL

A Child Rescued From Drowning Great Presence of Mind- We have the following particulars of an almost miraculous rescue from a drowning of a small child by a young lady, in the south part of this county; on Monday afternoon last.
A young lady, Miss Kingsley, took occasion to pay a visit to a widow lady, Mrs Orr, on the afternoon spoken of. In the course of the visit, a small child of Mrs. Orr's fell into a well of considerable depth, containing some sixteen feet of water. The accident was immediately discovered, and both the mother and Miss K rushed to the assistance of the little sufferer. The child had already sunk and immediately appeared on the surface of the water. The first impulse of the mother was to plunge headlong into the well, heedless of circumstances, and attempt the deliverance of her child at a cost of her own life; and was with difficulty restrained from doing so by Miss K; who, grasping the arm of the frantic mother, held her firmly, and with the other hand seized a rake near at hand, broke the head of the rake in a manner to enable her to make use of it in rescuing the child. It was the work of an instant, almost; and with one hand still holding the mother, before the child sank! the second time succeeding in grappling its clothing and raising it within a short distance of the top of the well, when the hold loosened and the child was again precipitated into the water. Never despairing, and still endeavoring to soothe the anguish of the mother, the young lady again succeeded in entangling the head of the rake in the childs clothing; and in this way bouyed it up, preventing strangulation until assistance could be obtained, and finally the little sufferer was taken out alive.
A case of such coolness, composure, and power of execution, under such exciting circumstances, as was exhibited by Miss Kingsley, is seldom recorded; and she can have the pleasing reflection, by her presence of mind, of not only saving the child from an untimely end, but rescuing the mother from a fate equally horrible. -

Prospectus of The Constitutionist
No Apology is required for offering a new paper to the support of the people of Morgan. It has been a matter of surprise for months that so intelligent and populous a county could furnish but a single newspaper. But now that the Whig portion of its citizens is without an organ for the advocacy of their principles, it is not to be supposed that the newspaper field will remain unoccupied. Without refering to the motives which have prompted him to again assume the chair-editorial, the undersigned therefore proposes to issue a handsome paper with the above title; assumed in reference to the recent attempts to elevate individual judgement of a "higher law" above the Constitution.
as to the character of the paper, it is sufficient to say that it will advocate WHIG MEASURES AND WHIG MEN- the undersigned believing that his course as late editor of the Morgan Journal makes any further exposition of sentiment unnecessary...... E.R.ROE

Presentation of Swords...Governor FRENCH...to officers in the Mexican War.
We saw that of Col. WARREN of Jacksonville, and a most splendid affair it is.
The blade is a straight, "dress sword," manufactured in Europe, but mounted and ornamented in this country. The hilt is massive silver,
heavily overlaid with gold by the electro-typing process; and the entire handle and guard are of the most exquisite workmanship. On
one side of the blade is a diagram of the route of Gen. Taylor's Division in Mexico; and on the reverse, the inscription: "Presented by
the state of Illinois to Major William B Warren, for services in the late war of the United States with Mexico; and especially for his
gallantry at the battle of Buena Vista, Feb. 22, 1847." The scabbord is also heavily gilt; and as a specimen of American skill, does
great credit to yankee taste and workmanship.
