ProRlA baa begun to agitate the
temperance question. The lending
minister and prominent citizens are in
terested in tlio movement.
SvniNQFiELD, 111., was the only city
which remembered that the fifteenth
inst., was tho anniversary of the assas
aioation of Abraham Lincoln. Tho tin-
tiOaal flag on the tlomo of lio Statu
House was kept at half mast during
Tine heavy frosts of last week de
stroyed tbo tobaco plants of llallard
cointy, and manyof tho farmers have re
sown their beds and sonio have prepar
ed new ones. The prospects for a crop
are regarded by farmers an very unfavorable.
The continued rains are having
very bad effect upon tho farming inter
ests of Mississippi. In some sections,
Bot one-tenth of tho corn lauds have
ben planted, and nothing has been
done to prepare tbo land lor cotton
wed, which should bo planted this
month. All tho crops aio from four to
eight weeks behind baud.
TrtE 'Washiugton correspondent of
tho New York IIcrald' is agitated. lie
fears tho inflationists arc repudiation
iita. lie Bounds tho alarm. He points
to tho South and declare.? that tho
scheme is of Southern origin, nud that
the South favors it because it hates the
government and is anxious to disgrace
it by repudiation. Such stuff
u this may do to feed to tho gul
lible people of the East, but to tho peo
ple of the West and South it sounds too
wch like twaddle and it is twaddle
M. I'lobs, objects to the proposed coa
lition of demounts and fiirmcrs. The
'Courier' is professedly of the opinion
that tho coalition has been suggested in
tho interest of broken-down politicians;
but, if we have read tho signs of tho
times correctly, the broken-down poli
ticians cf the democratic party arc not in
favor of permitting any now clement to
become a part of tho democratic organ
ization. They know that they can con
trol the democratic organization, and
that they cannot control tho proposed
As steadfastly at. ever, we hold fact to
the principles of the democratic party,
and believe their success is csfcntlal to
the preservation of tho liberties of the
American people, but we do not believe
tho "old democratic party ' that any
party advocating tho peculiar doctrines
of the Ilourbotis and led by men like
Fernando Wcod and Alexander Steph
ens can or ought to succeed. It is np-
pareut to The IiiM.r.Tix, as it must be
to every ob-crvcr of the drift of polit
ical event', that the republican party
has blundered and that the people rue
ready to condemn it, nud will, il the
democratic leaden) will permit them to.
We do not wish to yield everything to
the people who call themselves "farm
ers," and who arc sometimes styled tho
"anti-monopolists." They wish to suc
ceed us much as the democrats do, and
will not imitate the folly of the Bour
bon democrats and refuse to receive tho
support of allies who aro anxious to
fight in their cause.
It is true some scheming politicians
arc anxious to gain favor with the
"farmer.'," but tho "farmers" must not
bo led by Hitch men into mistakes.
They must nominate good men for of
fice able men and honest ; and, ty all
means, they must not put forward as
their representative for any public po
sition any man whose hands have been
crossed by bribe money any man wiio
has used public oflico to further his own
pecuniary welfare by overreaching hi
constituents any man who lacks the
ability to comprehend tho situation and
has not the courage to fieht with de
termination for his cause.
Tin: Ui'm.ktin is anxious that the
opposition shall bo consolidated ; and
if it can be, will earnestly support any
good man the combination of tho op
position elements may nominate ; but
Tub Huu.ctin will fight with all its
vigor against an unworthy nominee
Tho consolidation can be accomplished
and wo hope it may be.
Tni'fl the l'aducah Kcntuckian :
The editor of tho Cairo 'Bulletin
says? "Tho pcoplo of Cairo should bo
careful to elect members of the Council
who understand tho wants of tho city."
The question nriscs, what aro tho
"wants" of Cairo? At present the
greatest waut in that devoted city is a

mid summcrmight bring us tho cholera,
and such other infectious diseases as
depopulate Faducah, and Cairo might
bocomo as dead as Faducah herself.
The Chester, Randolph county, cor
respondent of the St. Louis 'Globe
says that John J. Shaunoti, of that
county, is, as yet, tho only prominent
candidate for congress. Tho news of
Mr. Shannon's candidacy has just
reached this part of tho district, but,
wo are all ready to concede, at once,
that he is tho only prominent candi
date. . Ho is a man who will leave no
stone unturned to be elected ; and he

his emancipation proclamation, making
remarks on the several parts as he went
on, and showing that he had fully con
sidered the subject in all the lights un
der which it had been presented to
"After he had closed, (.low Seward
said : 'The general question having
been decided, nothing further can be

"I followed, saying : What you have

now expressed the conclusion to which

"Tho president then asked in sever
illy our opinions an to the modifications
proposed, saying that he did not care
much about tho phrases ho had u-ei.
Lvery one lavorcd the modification,
and it was adopted. Gov. Seward then
proposed that m tho passage relating to
colonization somo language should be
introduced to show that the coloniza
tiou proposed was to bo only with the
consent of the colonists, and tho con
sent of the states m which tho colonics
might be attempted. This, too, was
agreed to ; nud no other modification
was proposed. Mr. lilair then said that
the question having been decided he
would make no objection to issuing the
proclamation; but ho would ask to have
lus paper, presented somo days siueo
against that policy, filed with the proe
Initiation. The President consented to
litis readily. And then Mr. Ulair
went ou to say that ho wasufraidof tho
proclamation ou tho border btates and
on the army, nud stated, at some length,
tho grounds of his apprehension. IIo
disclaimed most expressly, however, nil

In the early part of the last week Ah

Rellevillc, !NT. .1., started for San Fran

trymen to avoid a dreaded fatal rupture
between him and another 'Chinaman,
named Leu (iunn. Hou after Ah
Lone had nono, Leu (Iunn and others
missed about S71'0 in gold. They sus
pected Ah Lone of having stolen the
golden pieces, and at once placed the
matter in the hands of tho police. Tho
result was that Ah Lone Was captured
in Chicago, tho stolen monoy found
