the plan of electing candidate now
adopted, and the very fact that the late
convention, after all its troubles and di
versities of opinion, nominated Mr.

course there pursued. It is well enough
to try the new process, but it renders
cousaltation impossible, and very prob
Hhiy will give us candidates designated

GOOD SENSE.
The 11 raid says of the old mytholog
ical story of Xiobe and her twelve chil
dren, that it was terrible when she aaa
the twelve struck down by fiery solar-
xlmfts the first case on recorfl, we
opine, of ccmpde mAeH. The same dei
ty, in view of the active manner in
which he has plied his bow during the
past few days, must have received some
mortal offence at the hands of New
Yorkers. Whether the rain of fire that
descended upon the Cities of the Plain
could have affected the thermometer, or
whatever substitute they had for it in
those days, to any greater extent than
the deadly heat of the present July is a
question that suffering New Y'ork would
be inclined to dispute. But the effects
are as fatal as the storm of bullets on the
bights of Fredericksburg, or the leaden
hail that swept through the orchards
of Weissenuurg two years ago.
Men, women and children have been
struck down in scores, many never to
rise again, and the death list at the
Coroners' office hourly increases. Such
tierce, persistent heat was never before
experienced, not even when the most
rabid political conventions met and
wrangled. Already one hundered and
sixty deaths testify to the terrible power
of the mid-ummer sun, and it would be
impossible to calculate the number of
those who have suffered from the same
cause toa degree which may lead to death
or wreck of constitution. The principal
thoroughfares have become like a field
of Itattle meii falling iu every direction
and ambulances in constant requisition.
And the attendant symptoms of such a
death are no less terrible than when con
tending armies meet. Often there J
raging delirium, screams as if in intense
aguny, convulsions that distort the
body like a potent poison, and
an expression on the face that
would make the most hardened
turn away; then the final convulsive
eutt-lder, and the victim passes over the
dark river. In other cases the symp
toms are like those that attend death by
cold. Natural sleep is succeeded by the
fatal coma or stupor that presages death,
To guard against this terrible foe and
rend his attacks should be the first
p
care of every one in the community.
An epidemic of the most virulent kind
could not produce a more fearful mortal
ity in a few days. Every day that this
intense heat nrevails the weaker the
human system becomes, and the more
--:.::' precaution to avoid every
tnig that tends to make the body an
easy victim to the fiery destroyer. The
sun has no more active agents in hi
deadly work than alcoholic stimulants
and i je water when the latter is taken
injudiciously. The mental depression
t nse)ueut upon such weather some
times induces people to resort to all
kinds of excitable means to keep up their
spirits. Kuch a turs is highly dan
jrerous. The art of keeping cool, so ne
c essary in this fiery ordeal, refers to the
mind as much as to the body. Nervous
anxiety and inordinate fear or
excitement will tend to prostrate
even the strongest physical sys
tem. In regard to diet, each is the
iest judge for himself. Moderation,
above all. is advisable, and " taking
things easy " an insuperable barrier
asrainst sunstroke. If the fearful list of
denths were carefully investigated as to
the immediate cause leading to such a
result, it would be found that in nine
cases out of ten the victim's system was
weakened by pernicious stimulants, in
cautious exposure or mental depression.
Common sense will be an excellent
guide in this weather, as it will teach
everyone to regulate his mode of living
in projiortion to the strength of his men
tal and physical system. Keep cool,
indulge in frequent external baths in
cold water, and eschew stimulants;
sleep eight hours of each twenty-four;
avoid heated political conclaves; sup
port the wisest and most virtuous candi
dates for office; do not turn the city and
county over to Barbour Lewis, Curry
and the blacks, and Providence will
hardly become an Apollo to subject you
to the fate the tearful fete of Niobe'a
children.

Bolivar, Tkxst., July 7, 1872.
Editors Appeal The action of the
Democratic Executive Committee of
8helby county, in regard to the plan of
selecting delegates and making nomina
tions for offices, has been the source of
some comment among the so-called
" countrv cousins" interested in the
matter. It seems that the old system of
sending delegates to a convention Tor the
purpose of counseling and advising as to
what is best to be done, it to be super
ceded bv what is called the vote of
primary elections, in which the people
vote directly for the man ol their prefer
ence. Now, Mr. Editor, your corre
sixiudeut is one of the people, and has
always been clamorous for the rights of
the people. He concedes tnat these
rijrhts have often been denied by the
manipulations of conventions, and is
willing and anxious that this fraud may
be prevented in future. But if the plan
adopted by the Democratic Committee
is properly understood, we "country
cousins " are at a loss to see ana appre
hend bow the old plan is improved
upon. We do not want to quarrel with
our "city cousins, ana nope a mere
mention or a seeming injustice will se
cure some consideration for us. We of
Tipton, Hardeman and Fayette coun
ties are severally ana jointly interested
in the selection of a Congressman, in
according to the apportionment lixtd
by law, and by which Shelby is entitled
to seventy-eight votes, and Fayette,
Tipton and Hardeman to forty-six
votes giving to helby thirty-two
more votes than the other counties of
the district combined. If the majority
rule is adopted in convention, this, we
perceive, may enable Shelby to secure
the nominations. This, we think,
might become unjust, if the county
should desire to present a man for that
office but we will not dispute about
that here. The Democratic Com
mittee adopts a plan by which the
man who receives the highest number
of votes in the primary meetings in
Shelby county shall be declared to be
the nominee of the county. This vir
tually ignores the minority man in
Shelby county, though he may carry a
larger vote in the district. The Demo
cratic party certainly would not stoop
to conquer in such a game as this. Now
let us see how this may work ' unjustly.
Colonel Looney, for instance, with a
minority vote in Shelby, but a majority
vote in the district, would be rejected ill
convention, and Captain Lacey, who is
but little known in the district,
but better known in Memphis, would
be lou-ted on the party, upon a
purely local vote, lcause he receives
more votes than Looney, perhaps, at
the primary elections in Shelby county.
This we think, Mr. Editor, is unjust.
ungenerous and uu-Democratic; and if
we of the country are to Know by the
primary elections who has the highest
v'tte iu Shelby, and this, by the rule of
t..e Democratic t oinmittee, is to deter
m iue the vote of Shelby county abso
lulely iu convention, why it is worse
than folly to aend delegates to the con
vention. In fact, what is the use of a
'lvention? The primary elections of
Shelby county will control and deter
mine the result, and the other counties
have no power to alter it, even for a
Shelby man. To hold a convention is
to invite guests to your table merely to
-ee others enjoy the viands, which must
not be shared by the guests. Let the
Democratic Committee of Shelby county
count out the voles aud declare who is
the iiomiuee. without the farcical form
of a convention. Perhaps in that
event the "country cousius" will then
have a convention and invite our
-H-nds of Shelby to unite with us in
council, where all shall fairly be repre
sented and each county shall have its
due weight and due influence.
Mr. Editor, you are a champion of
the right, and we ask you, in the name
of time-honored usage and principle, to
bring this matter before the good people
1 Shelby county, whose instincts are
right, to adopt a better rule. We are
only avoiding one evil, where all are re
sponsible, to fall into another, where
only a few men, iu committee, by an
arbitrary rule, commit the error. If we
commit a blunder by the convention
system, we do it ourselves,
" "And then
ur tyrants are our countrymen. '
"Might makes right." was never one of
the Democratic tenets, and we sincerely
hope, for the sake of honor, truth and
harmony in the party, the principle
will not be urged, that because Hhefbv
has the ower, the county delegates
shall have no influence in the conven
tion. OOCNTBY t ot st.v.
Smith, of Mobiie, Alabama, on the part
of the "Cadet" These gmtemen (Mr.
Smith as Brutus, and Mr. Cochran as
CasshM; had won the highest encomiums
in the play of Omar, with which the
Dramatic Club of the Virginia Military
Institute had delighted a large audience,
and it was feared by some of their friends
that this and their preparation for their
examinations, which they passed very
creditably, would prevent them from
ucceeding m their orations. But these
fears were most happily dispelled, and
each of the young orators did credit to
himself, his society, and his State.
Mr. Cochran selected as his theme:
"The battle of Life," vividly picturing
life's varied phases. He brought out
what was necessary to meet its stern du
ties and responsibilities, and earnestly
exhorted his young comrades to buckle
on their armor and make due prepara
tion for life's battle.
Mr. Smith announced as his theme :
Man, the architect of his owu fortune."
After arguing to prove this proposition,
choosing for the purpose notable exam
ples from history, and especially the
two greatiberoes (Jackson and Leei who
sleep here, be spoile of the duties and
responsibilities growing out of thia, and
based these on a stirnug appeal to his
comrades to carve out for themselves
noble destinies. It is no dispargement
to others to say that Mr. Smith made
the speech of the evening.
After the speaking was over there was
the usual promenade, but your corres
pondent begs to be excused from attempt -

There is an objection to Chanoellor
Olvin Jones, who announces himself a
candidate for the State Senate. He is,
if such a fact were possible, too good a
man to enter upon a political contest.
He has served successfully upon the
bench xud at the bar, and won enviable
distinction; even asm social mad business
life his fame Is spotless. These are
simple foots, and if other qualities or .n
dowments are wanting we are not ud
