The Marine City lleporter has just passed iis first birthday without running foul of any of the fatal diseases prevalent among young newspapers, but is healthy and happy. The Clinton News man's liorso got to feeling his oats, attempted to be frisky, feil down an embanknient, and killed itself. It i-n't niany editors who have a horse to lose. The Galcsburg Express is the uauue of a new and neat looking flve column quarto wliich comes to our table. C. Eugene Howe is the editor, and thecopy before us ia No. 11, of vol. 1. The St. Jo. Traveller-Ilerald says that Bu-r-row-s is the Way the Hon. J. C. Burrows (who by the way bids fair to be the nest speaker of the Elouse) spells his name.
