Tuk Democratic Senatorial .Conven
tion, of the filet senatorial district, has
been culled to meet nt Oolcouda. on
.u.aay, August loth, ilio couvoui
tion Trill nominate candidate for .oua
tor and inombers of tho houso of rep
resentatives to totvo iu the next gen
eral assembly, nnd consult as to tho
best means for furthering tho welfare
of tho democratic party iu tho district.
Tho basis of representation iu the con
vention will bo one delogato for each
100 votos cast for llou.i:. S. .Marshall,
in Hardin county, and for Hon. fi. W.
Wall in tho other counties of tho dir
drict, in tho election of S7'2, and an
additional dologate for each f'raotion of

Tue Johnson County .lourual says
that tho (jueition : "How can the
chinch bugs bo disposed of?" is of far
moro importance to tho farmers than
tho question : " IJow eon wo organize
a political parly that will dsfcat radio-
nlisw, aud give renewed prosperity to
the country V" Wo do not blamo the
"Journal" for cutertaining this opin
ion. Tho fact that tho farmers mo
now taking an interest iu polities has
alarmed tho radical chinch bugs who
have been destroying tho prosperity of
tho republic. Tho chinch bug that is
now destroying fields of coin is uot
half ar, dentruetivo oftha prosperity of
farmore, mocliauioH the people in gen
eral as the radical chinch bug that
has blasted t! o public morals nnd
ruined tho business of tho union.
Tho farmors nro wUo therefore in di
rcctiDp their attention to this chinch
bug, and wo hope tiioy may bo able
drive it from the Jand.
The nonnuatiou of Hon. Isaac Cle
ments for congress by tho radicals is,
wo believe, one of the certainties of tho
future. It is true opposition to him
has been dovclopod latoly iu unexpect
ed quarters, but no pressuro that can
bo brought ogaiust hhn at this late
hour is likely to defeat Liiu in tho con
vention. Wc havo nu doubt, however,
he can bo defoatod boforo tho pcoplo, if
tho opposition act as a unite in tho ap
proaching campaign, and labor with in
duftry to that end.
Th oppotitiou caunot bo united by
iruction. Somebody must make a move
ment to sccuro tho organization of the
oppotition voters of tho dittriot, and
should do 6a tt unco.

THE ANCIHNT CITIES OF A 111
In spito of tho Apaches and a fow
natural disadvantages, chief among
which ii tho necessity for irrigating
its soil to make it productive, Ar
izona is one of tho mont rapidly im
proving ot our western ".territories.
llnt,Mhile its future is full of prounse,it
paH has a history, too, a Iiiitqry com
pnsTng'moro than tho mere fact of for
ests, unbroken nnd solitary savo for
the enmps' of the red nun, here and
Tho Pueblo Viujo Valley, in Ari
zona, is about Bixty miles long and
averages four mil in width, and eon-
tains fill a nt;'icjUural aud gruzing
land. Companies nr now ungad in
building irrigating canal in this valley,
and in tho course of their labors havo
discovered n chain of well-marked
ruins of ancient cities Uoatctl about
a milo apart. In somo places the walls
of the houses still show above the sur
face, and at others, tho rolling mounds,
from ten to forty feet iu height, cov
ered with earth or vegetation, show
that ages must have passed since they
were laid protrato. The walls aro
composed of rough stone, laid in mor
tar. Excavations within their limits in
dicato that all- tho cities were
dcStrOVPlI Inr firn A Jt.U
aro found pottery, household utensils
and human boiice. r.vlu.cutj, oicran
tion was practiced by tho pcoplo whoso
bones these wore, as many bones woro
found in earthen vessels, in mall pieces
which erumblo at n touoh, and bits
of charcoal, axes, hammers and sledges,
of difflveut sizo und shapes, oud made
of stoui heavior and harder than any
now known, havo bcou found.
Anioig tho interesting discoveries is
that o;' a largo canal extending
from tlu (fila river at tho eastern ond
of tlw valley down through
tho ancient citie, iu each
of which is a largo triangular
shaped reservoli containing from threo
to fivo acres. These are suppoicd to
bo the ruins of old fortifications. Tho
edges of tho canal and roicrvoir aro
laid with stono and constructed iu a
very substantial manner. Somo of tho
reservoirs which aru six or eight feet
deep, aro divided by walls of maponry
extending from side to side.
Who built aud inhabited theso cities,
nnd passed away luaving behind them
only the ruins of thoir habitations to
toll futura ages of their existouce, is an
interesting problem. It has been said
that Mio wanderers throne!) Asia, a
thousand or more yeais ogo, crossed
Uchvitig's strait and n.udo their way
down the I'aoifio coast of America into
the tcuiperatu and torrid zones, but no
facts can bo adduced to prove that
these were tho ancient inhabitants of
15 LOW THE HUHJiH, AND RALLr
Wo have advocated the policy of
abandoning tho democratic organiza
tion and establishing a party upon
true democratic principles.
We have advocated this policy bo
cause tho democratic organization has
Weu often led into falso position
by unwise and dishonest leaders, who
havo brought the reproach of treason,
corruption, hypocrisy, senility and
Hourbonism upon it.
AVc believed, nnd do still believe,
that a political organization founded
upon tho principle cf truo domocraoy
might and would succeed, if it were
uncuntamiuutcd by tho shortcomings
and mistakes of th old democracy,
which may be briefly summarized ns
tho right of secession
tho rebellion ;
Ulairisi.1, protesting against accom
plished fts,and advocating tho use of
tho bayonet to overthrow tho results cf
tho war ;
Caucasianism, speaking with tho
voico bf caslcjfand advocating tho in
v.' tellcctual, political and oven physical
slavery of tho negro ;
IiCgardomainism, with its pert voice
nnd brisk manners, saying to the coun
try : "Hero, my friends, you sco tMs
little anti-protootiou ball, and now
Pondlotonianiim, promising prosper
ity tl'it would bo a bubblo and a disa
Tnuodum, stuffing ballot-boxes and
robbing the people while it sings tho
Song' of Honesty and Kcforin ;
Fcrnando-Woodism, justifying tho
salary-grab robbery ;
Many other anti-domocraticisms,
which arc, in the language of th: sale
bill, "too numerous to montion. "
Wo had great hopes of the anti-monopoly
movement in this slate,
and believed, that out of it
would spring tho party of sound
principles and victory. This hopo wo
havo not pormiltod to permanently
abandon us; but wo do not deny that
the movement lias not yet succeeded
in striking tho right chord of public
sentiment. Under tho manipulation of
shortsighted leaders it has allowed its
gnrmouts to become contaminated with
the odor of solfishncsi and classism ;
it has nl ready shown tho white feather,
and in the cowardly fashion of tho old
parties, has used ambiguous phrases in
declaring principles and left uusaid
what it should have boldly asserted.
In short, wo nro compelled to say,
that, iu our opinion, the statu conven
tion of the Independent Reform Parly
did uot, iu the result of its delibera
tions, meet the expectations of that
groat body of Democrats, who, the
opportunity being presented, would nut
licsitato to walk iu mass out of the
Democratic Party into u now paity,
vigorous, bold aud honest.
What, then , shall bo done by tho men
who really desirn reform iu tho gov
vi ii went 'I
When tho wse man cannot got
all ho desires ho does not foolishly re
fuso to accept as muoh as he can ob

the new-movouiBut Democrats of Illi
nois,havo not succeed in obtaining what
they wish,thuy should mako the most of
the situation ; having failed iuan at
tempt to organize a good new party
they ought to labor to mukc the old
party what it should be.
This, we bolievo, is the practical way
in which to confront the difficulties be
And why not? Tho Democratic party
is objectionable because the record of
its leaders butt east upon it an odium,
aud because it has beon bath cowardly
and foolish in somo of the campaigns
through which it has paused. After
tho dorils had been cast out of tho two
men iu tho country of tlio Oorgcscncs,
they bocatue, no doubt, very proper
nnd konst gentlemen; and, is it not pos
sible, that, if the bad loaders of the
Democracy were cast out, it would be
the best and purest party iu the coun
try u pasty born again a new party ?
lhcxclorc, we belicvo tho Dotno

should issuti a call for a state conven
tion ; and Democrats shnnl'' 4 '

the corrupt salary-grabbing IJourbonic
leaders who havo been tho curse of tho
party, nomiuato honest and competent
candidates and publish a platform of
principles no person can inisuu
stand. If the Democrats, 'who have ocoupiod
tho position wo havo occupied for sev
eral years past, can obtain from their
own party tonus of this kind, why
should thoy hesitate to accept them V
Will it bo wiso in us to stand aside,
and do nothing? Uccauso tho Democratic-
Jerusalem has stoned the pro
phots, shall we abandon tho city after
she Iir.a promised to becomo tho de
fenders of tho prophots, and go out into
tholladical Sodom, or wander in search
of tho Auti-Mouopoly, city the
foundations of which havo not yot
boon laid upou solid ground? Hut,
if, as in tlio past,tho Democratic party
should not bo wise, what then ? Why,
then, defeat will bring its own punish
ment to tho fools whohave lost an op
portunity to redeem t'o parly from tho
Slough of De.pond. Hut sufficient
unto the day is tho ovillhcrcof.
So, wo cry : ''Rise up Cyrus McCor
mick, old boy ; mnslor.he tuembors of
your committee, blessu and venerable
party truncheon users 'bat thoy are,
and go to tho front. IMion, bugler,
