when opportunity offers, of alt tho princi

carelessly Indulges In an untruth
when he says Mr. Oberly baa
turned his bick on tho party that elected
blm. Mr. Ilouton, wo fear, Is too stupid
to understand that Mr. Oborly occupies
the position of most of tho prominent Dem
ocratic papers in Ih country, and of most
of the prominent Domocrnts all of tho
sensible Democrnls, except Tliurmnn,who
Is seeking to becotno tho angel of Domo

cry of: "Down with tho nigger." Woolly

AVo cannot understand how Mr. Ilou
ton digressed before ho commenced, but
no matter. Mr. Ilouton, n a literary
way, is a law unto himself. Ho has n
right to blunder. Fur bo it from u to re
proach him tv 1th his shortcomings as a
wr'.tor. Wo aro not without blame in this
reipect, and shill not, therefore, throw
stones at blundering Tom Uoulon.
And tbl brings us to tho offenses we
have committed against our friend of tho
Joaesboro 'Gazette.' Wo havn actually
said, in titter disregard for tho truth, that
Tom Ilouton -may I'cnven bless his stupid
soul I that Tom Bouton "does not pro-
iposo to oppose Orunt right or wrong, but
'to approve tho president's wiso actions
'and denounco his foolish ones!" This
nisortion stupid Thomas resents. It mti't
not be said that ho will npprovo tho wlso
actions of Grant or any other man, nnd
heaven forbid lhuthought,that Tom would
denounce foolishness In any quarter. Tom
is not lo bo caught in that trap. Ho is too
sharp. "TilR Bulletin, if it intended to
'bo just," says Thomn, '-would have
'given the article in full as follows:"
The banks ami the monopolist that live
by protection, knocked the Liberal ticket
higher than a kite. We do nut propose, ut
till- uarlv day, to go to lUlitlng wiud-iuilK

Neither do we propone to Mug peant of
praise to the power that be, but to approve
Lie right, and denounce the wrong. The
next great political comet will be between
capital and labor, and the old Democratic
party hai ahv.ijs been the adtocatc and pro
lector of labor agaiut the encroachment))
of the nvmled power in every content. Let
ut miintaiu the old landmarks, and time
will develop thuiotius.
Our good friend, Tom, docs not proposo
to go to lighting wind-mills "at this early
dy." After uwhllo ho will return to tho
old buiinuss, nnd tho manner in which he
will shatter tho wind-mills ho will then
attack, will throw into tho shado tho ex
ploits ol thu notablo l)jn of Cervantes'
tlction. Hut ho will not bo tho Don. Ho
plays ijanelio P.inr.i to tho Djn Q'lixotu of
a gentleman of Union county who "runs''
him a gentleman who is not rougli or
bluff, liko old Jou Baltock, but like Joe,
"sly, sir, d d sly."
And this brings us back to our mutton,
which is tho terriblo wrong wo have done
to Tom Ilouton. Wo said that ho sail
that ho did not proposa to oppusn Orant
right or wrong, but to approve Oram's
wiso actions and denounco his foolish
ones. Tom says bu did not say that, but
that ho did say that be
did not propose to sing peans of praisa to
tho powers that bo, but to approve tho
right and denounco tho wrong. What is
tho difforenco bclweon our twoedledeo and
Tom's tweedlnduni ? Mark you, now, wo
said Tom said he would not opposo Orant
right or wrong, but npprovo his wise
actions and condemn his foolish actions
Tom says ho said : " 1 will not praise the
'powers that bo t. t. Orant, but ap
'provo what In Grant's Hdministrutlon is
'right, and opposo whit is wrong." Poor
Tom Is owlish. His wisdom is all in his
appearance Iln is a weak brother intel
lectually, or ho would never hnvo rushed
into print to rebuko us for saying ho said
wliHt ho does not deny ho said. Stupid
ity sticks to Thomas liko a cocklo bur to

But wo cannot waste more timoon Tom,
and must now bid htm an nffectionato
adieu. Ho has our belt withes for his suc
cess ; and wo do liopo ho will not speed
ily again uir his fl igrant stupidity. Tom
is liko an ass. Whilo ho is silent ha will
do; but when he epons his mouth (or
takes up his pen), wn nro always con

W ATE II, NO WHERE.
A water fatnino covering a wide- space
of country, appears almost Imminent. Tho
mesL-reni nnf tho rain-fall durini! the sum
rat. The call for the convention which ' mcr and nututlin( ftna- tho slight fall of
is not materially felt, though even here,
it Is becoming an article of commerce, and
as such, owing to the prevalence of the
horse disease may also fee classed among
tho luxuries to that class of the popoula
tion whoso purses permit only the pur
chise of the necoisarles of life. In the
country and Inland towns, tho scarcity
of water is becoming seriously felt, and
how to remedy or sustain tho tnconven
lenco, suffering and loss resulting from it,
Is n question which, white It Is of the
greatest Importance, nppears to admit of
no solution. In many places stock Is be
ginning to enduro the painful effects of
thn deprivation of the thirst-allay Ing
fluid. Vegctstlon during the past season
was grextty retarded by tho insufficient
rain-falls, and farmers predict the entire
loss rf tho fall wheat If the present dry
weather continues, and no snow falls.
A BOUT WIl'U BOUTON.
Mr. T. F. Bouton, oiitor of it psper
published in 'Union county and u very
good country paper, by tho way fearful
that Dls reputation a a Democrat might
be injured in this community, has availed
himself of the columns of tho Cairo
iGizUte' to correct an assertion tnado by
Tat Bulletin a fa days ago.
We admire Tom-. Bouton, and do not
wish lo forfeit his valuable favor. Ho is
a genius in his way. In many things hn
is remarkable. He looks upon the world,
very properly, ns his plum pudding -, and
whenever he gets an opportunity, puts in
his thumb and pulls out a plum, saying .
"What a great man am I?" Unfortu
nately fjr the other parts of tho world
Union county possesses Tom ; and al
though many of the best citizens of that
county bold him in detestation, and be
lieve him to be a small potato of a bad
pedes, we bold him as a "friend of our
'tool," and gaii upon his features, when
ever we have an opportunity, with ad
miration, unmodified by the nbuso of bis
While, however, we thus admirnTom.wo
are compelled to say we do not admire his
abilities. In fact, we are forced to the
conclusion that be has none. He has suc
ceeded as a country publisher, becauso be
has the rare merit of being a close busi
ness wan a very closo business man. He
.is, "in truth and in fact," tbu Q-iilp of the
press of Egypt, almost as beaulitul as
Dickens' character, and almost as warm
hearted. We douLt if be would, as has
bssn intimated, skin a flea for its tallow ;
his time is too valuable and lifo is too
short; but his "closeness" has given him
success. .If brains bad been a requisite in
tbe position bo occupies, be would, wo re
gret to say, havo been a failure. If tho
tratb must be told, he banks "on fewer
'brains" than any other editor In Illinois.
Mr. Bouton's communica'ion to thu
'Guzettii' opens In this luminous manner:
Since Mr. Oberly made his speech In your
city to the negroes, he ban been In great
tribulation, lie undoubtedly suppoed
that an itnmene rev lutlon would be ere
ed in E.-ypt. We hear ol but one senti
ment boweter, especially In Union county,
