The 'Sun need not btl hlnrmcd. Wo
are not a candidate, for eongrois, nnd bavo
not, ovon for a moment, hoped wo thould
over be solectod to bear down in force on
Little Ike. Thoro aro in this dlttrlct val
iant anti-Radicals cltbor of whom will
willingly undortako tbo talk of wiping
out Mr. dementi' majority, in which la
bor w (hall moat aiaurodly take a band.
But the 'Sun' need not shako iti locki nt
ua. "Wo aro not in Little Ike's way.
Tub Chicago 'Trituno' and other pure
mindod newspapers aro shocked bocauio
tbo Chicago 'Timos' is a vulgar shod
i.e., publiihos the spicy items of nows
about matrimonial infelicity, loving not
wiioly but too woll and being dotavted,and
to forth. Tbo 'Times' ii no worso in thft
regard than any otbor good paper. They
all do it, even tho Christian press; but
the Times,' boing vory cntorprising, stir
panes all its cotcmporarics, and thoy nro
consequently vory angry.
Tub 'Sun,' that astuto journal without
an opinion, believes that tbo question wo
raised last Sunday, wo boliovo, lu regard
to tho abienco from our statute book of
any law authorizing boards of county
commissioners to organtee, Is u "maro's
nost." If It , it ii a "maro's nost" of
lomo importanco. The 'Sun' is probably
convinced already that this is true, nnd
that our "wonderful discovories" will not
"all prove gas." Tho governor lufuavu
to commission tho mombors of boards of
county commissioners olocted a short
tlmo ago,and tbo conimlttoo on raviaion of
tbo legtilaturo has prepared a bill to give
effect to tbo constitutional provision pro
viding for boards of commissioners in
counties not undor township organization,
Tho 'Sun,' as utuul, has put its toot in it
up to tbo kneo.
The 'Sun'wishos to convoy tho im
pression to tbo public that wo aro aiming
Mr. Wilson. Wo need not say to that
gentleman, this Is nottruo. Ho knows we
aro a warm admirer ot his character, and
allow nobody but Mr. Sminorwoll, (who
has bcon bis admirer for fifteen juars) to
go boforo us in dovotlon to his lntorosts.
We expect to embrace him during tbo neit
political campaign, and with bim go in to
whip out all tho Kadi in Southern Illinois.
IIo Is a Democrat after our own heart,
Tom and wo think aliko on most quos
tiona. In fact, politically wo uso ono
quill, Tho truth is, Mr. Wilson is a sa
gacious politician. Ho don't linger in tho
by-paths of political stupidness, and has
nonso. "Wo have n weakness for him, and
wo aro resolved that tho 'Sun' shan't bavo
him all. Wo like him for himself; tho
'Sun' for his shall wo say, purso?
The 'Sun' asks us why wo last
yoar favored the lovytng and
collection of n tax on Cairo
and St. Louis bonds not dellvorod 7 This
quostion is an implied assertion that we
did favor such a tax. When tho 'Sun'
made tbo chargo it was either ignorant of
tho truth or knowingly nisortod a false
hood. Wo never advocatod tho policy of
paying interest on bonds in tbo hands of
county and city. Wo pay tuxop, and find
them vary burdensome ; vvo have an in
terest in having them as low as possible.
To collect unnecessary taxes is folly. Last
year the levy was mado without our
knowlodgo. We paid tho taxes, without
protest, because everybody else did, and
becauso, in addition to this fact, wo bo.
lleved tho road would be completed by
September 1st, last, and tho monoy would
tie neoaea to pay intorost ttiat would ac
crue on tbo bonds beforo tbo taxes of this
year could bavo boon collected.
Tux 'Sun' wishes to know if wo realize
that thotai-payeri of the county and city
are waking up to a realization of some
sort of mismanagement of tboir Interest
in connection with tho Cairo and St.Loul1
railroad 7 Aro the pooplo waking up to
such a realization? I)oa the 'Sun' be
lleve tbero has been mlimanagemenl of
the Interest of tho people of Calre and
Alexander county In connection with tb
Ctdro nd St, Louis railroad 7 If it does,
wherein bu been that mismanagement
and who u responsible for it 7 Wo do
roand answers to these questions. Tho
Bun' bu hinted long enough. It has
hinted that the county and city have lo.l
ometbioc by the stupidity or dlihoncity
of the directors of tbe Cairo and St. Louis
road In this city Messrs. Tailor, Hurd,
Allen, Hross and Oborly. Wo de
mand now that It rrovo charge
that it show wherein tho city ond
county lias lost ono cent nnd
that It namo tbo directors who am ro
sponsible for tho loss. If tbo 'Sun ahull
rcfitao or I unablo to do this, tt must
stand convicted of mean and malicious
County Clork Lynch wroto to Auditor
Llpponcott n fow days ago in relation to
levies of taxes on assessment of this yonr
for paying intorost on registered bonds of
this county and city, and has received n
reply containing corrected ratos a redue
tion of nearly ono. half, viz.! 30 cunts on
each $100 valuation for tho county mid -18
cents for city. "Tbcso rates," says tbo
auditor, "aro intendod to provido for pay
ing intorcsl on 595,000 bonds isiuod by tho
city in nld of tho Cairo and ' Ineennos
railroad, falling duo as follows ; $0,300
January 1, 1871 ; $3,1)00 July 1, 1871;
$3,800 January 1, 1875, or beforo tbo taxes
can bo rccoivod from next levy.'1
If, now, tho county court and city coun
cil will knock off their lovy for this samo if,
tercst, nnd rcduco tho levy on tho Cairo
and St. Louis railroad bonds to provide
intorcst (or $39,000 for tlio county and tho
samo nmount for thu city, instead of for
$100,000 for each, tho bond-tax gooao will
hang high and all things in connection
with it will bo as lovoly as could bo ox
pectod undor tbo circumstance.".
Tbogovornor has rofuicd to commission
tbo nowly oloctod county commissioners
in this stato, on tbo ground that thoro is
no law in forco authorizing bim to Usuo
such commissions. Tbo revision commit

tho present light wo lmvo on tbo futjoct
we bolievo tho election was legal nnd that

is, howvor, an opon one.
During tlio provaloncoof tho Into yollow
fovor opldomic In Memphis, tho mayor of
tho city was attacked by tbo dlsoase.
Without authority of law ho appointed a
friond of bis to act in bis place, until ho
should dlo or bo annblod to rosumo tho per
formance of his official duties. His legal
substltuto was Mr. Paul A. Clcnlla, an
alderman who was chairman of what Cl
calla called "tho gas-so comoto." Ability
to perform tho duties of tho mayor's of
flco, Mr. Cicalla did not possess, but ho
belfatud ho did: ho bad no doubt ho
csuld discount any livinc mn iho full
ness of tho Momphlan mayoralty, nnd ho
concluded bo would not ouduro tho insult
of Mayor Johnson. Ho accordingly in
voked tho aid of tho law, and suporccdod
Mayor Johnson's man nsnctlng mayor.
Somobody sworo at Mr. Cicalla when
ho had takon this stop; und In u short
timotho habit of cursing him bocamo
goneral in tholllutrcity. Everybody cursod
him. Ho bectuno famous. Ho was nnd
ii tho most hatod man in tho city of tho
yollow aillictlon. Hut Mr. Cicalla didn't
caru. Ho is ono of tboso men who don't
caroa nicklo for public opinion, and bo
was deaf to all tbo ubuio that ivssRultud
ATtor nwhllo bo becamo infected not
with tho fover, but with n noblo doslro to
dftponso to an old lady and family a por
tion of tho charitable olforings which woro
showered down into Momphis out of tho
broad sky of humanity. Ho mado a re
quisition upon tbo propor committee, ob
tained a month's supplies, took thorn to
his own house, and distributed thorn
among tbo members of tbo'old lndy's fam
ily and tho family of bis own poor mother-
This fact was solzod upon by his ono-
mlos, and he was denounced as n thief.
Ho was not oven allowed u trial. Un
ceremoniously poor Paul was kicked out
of tho board of aldormon.
Rut tho unfortunate and oppressed, the
wronged and abused, bavo a buckler in
tho law. Mr. Cicalla has nut on that
bucklor, and proposes to fight his bnttlo
bravely until ho comes oil' victorious or
goos down in tbo last ditch.
1 tint Mr. Cicalla has been wronged, wo
havo no doubt whatevor. In our opinion,
his disposition of tho supplios proves bim
to bo a man of tho most tender heart, n
man who can riso ubovo tho most power-
iul temptation. If ho had divided tho
supplies betwoon tho old lady for whom
they woro obtained und otbor old ladies
not of bis own family, tho execrations
that havo boon buapod upon him would
havo been Juit; built is on record, that
tbo suppliei ho did not give to tbo old lady
ho gavo to his starving mother-in-law.
How many men with iturvlug
mntbort-in-law, would havo acted as 1'aul
A. Cicalla acted 7 In tbo langungo of
Logan, tho mournful Indian chief: "Not
ono I" Cicalla is ono among ten thousand
sons-in-law. Instead of abuse bo deserve
applause. Miss Slophcnton dlod thnt
strangers might live; but what was such
a sacrifice to that of Cicalla, who gave
away what did not belong to himself
who ran tho risk of a ruined reputation,
that his mother-in-law mlghtViotstarvul
Tbo tunoful local bards of Memphis
should pour forth songs in his pralio, and
