Sonator Logan, In his late speeches has
mado advocacy of tho civil rights bill a
test of Republicanism. Ho has declatod
that no man who refuses to endorse it Is
a truo Republican or a good cltlzon,
If wo woro to try tlio Republican papers
of this congressional district by this test
we could convict them all of aotl-Repuh-
Ilcanlsm. Not ono of tbmn supports the
bill, and sovoral oppose It. Tho Cairo
Sun, tho leading Radical paper of South
ern Illinois, has denounced it la strong
language, and tho Oolconda Uorald has
echoed its Calre contemporary.
Mr. Cloments, tho Itspubllcan candi
date for congress, boforo Senator Login's
Cairo spooch,bad also condemned the bill,
although ho stands upon a platform en.
dorslng It. Since the senator's phflllplo
against those who art unfriendly to the
bill, Mr. Clomonts has changed his tune
somewhat, but in Democratlo localities
does not hesitate to denounce the civil
rights bill as a dangorous and wicked
measure. Ho is playing fast and loose.
Dn. Hays, of New Vork, tho Arctlo ex
plorer, has written a lottor about tho
Austrian expedition, in which ho reite
rates his bellof that tho North Pole can
bo reacbod. He attributes tho falluro of
all previous expeditions to the fact that
only Capt. Hall's was providod with suf
ficient steam powor to battlo with tho ico
foes, and issatlsSed that but for Hall's
death be would have accomplished the
object of his mission. Dr. Hays believes
tho routo via Bafiln's Bay and Smith's
Sound tho only ono foastble, but thinks it
will be found necessary to keep bugging
the westward shores of tho Sound all tbo
way. Of course ha rejocts the theory of
the German explorors that there is no open
Polar soa, and locates tho mainland they
found and named "Francis Joseph Land"
as the northeast coast ot Greenland. Tlio
majority of ptaotlcal navlcators doubt
the possibility of reaching the North Polo
witn a steamer, but if it can bo lound at
all, there lies plausibility In tbo Kaa
Hays. Hall theory that tho way lies
through Befltn's Bay and Smith's Sound,
Both Hays od Hall ponetratod farther

The above Is from the home organ ot
Mr. Clomouts, the Republican candidate
for congress lrora this district.
A few wooki ago, Judge Wm. .1.
Allen sailed upon us, and In a conversa
tion that oniuod. Informed us that Mr.
Clements had said to Mosirs. James Ma
Morgan and James Bollamy, of Carbon
dalo, Jackson county, that bo (Clements)
was opposed to tho passage of thu civil
rights bill. Judgo Alton added, that tbeso
two gentlomon wero truthful men, and
that thoy had given to htm personally this
information. He requestod us to wrlto to
them on the subject. Wo did so. Tho
gentlemen refused toanswot butexhibltod
our letters to tbo editor of Mr. Clements'
homo organ. Mr. Morgan or Mr. Bol
lamy has a right to not roply to a courte
ous lottor, and to exhibit It to tho world
but In this lnstanco sllcnco Is of as much
use to us as a roply would havo beon. If Mr.
Clomonts had not told these gentloman
that he was opposed to the civil rights hill
thoy would not refuse to tell us so. It is
botause Mr. Cloments has denounced tho
bill to thorn that thoy refute to roply to
our letter. This fact tho commonts of The
Era prnvos. Both thoto gontlemen aro
Democrats, cays tho Era, and tbey aro to
well pleasod with Mr. Clemontt' position
on tho civil rights bill that they intend to
voto for him. It is not to be presumed
that a Domocrat will vote for a Republi
can because tho Republican is in favor ot
the civil rights bill. It Is bocau:o Mr.
Clements has told these Domocrats that
he is opposed to the civil rights bill that
they proposo to vote for him.
How do tho honest Republicans of tho
district like this political dishonesty in
their candldato for congrois? What do
the colored votors think of It?
Tbo Era says to us, that tbo mo of pot
tago stamps to nscortsin tho position
of our ropresontatlve in congress s
an Illegitimate use ot postage
stamps. This Is surprising information.
Our opinion has been that It was our
right to know tho position of our ropro
sentativo in congress upon all Import
ant questions, and wo havo never doubted
that it is our right to inqulro how a can
dldato for congress stands upon oven tho
civil rights bill. Senator Logan says that
tho man who does not ondorto tbo bill Is
not a Republican or a patriot. Tho Era
tells us that to endeavor to ascertain
whotber tbo Republican candidate for
Congress is sound on this great quo. Hon
is not a "legitimate'1 ondeavor I
Evidently the Republicans intend to
carry this district by carrying wator on
both shoulders by refusing elthor to
openly condemn or approve the civil
rights bill, ir Mr. Hartzell permits
tbem to do so, wo are mistakon In our
man. no snouid at once cballouge Mr,
Cloments to dtflno his position on this
issue, and compel him to do so.
A PLUCKED PIGKUN.
from the Chicago Tribune.
"Uneasy lios the head that wears a
crown." Governor Kellogg, of Louisiana,
has been mado thu targot of almost end-
lets abuse during the past tow months;
but when somo of tho facts of bis admin
istration are considered, it would seem as
tbo public should regard him more in sor
row man in anger, ji ever a pigeon
wero plucked in this world, this pigoon is
Kullotfg. isvery step tnat lie took in
volved a rat leo, lurn wnichevor way
ho might, ho was destined to meet somo
impouunutn politician soliciting money,
Thore wero beggars to tbo right of him,
and beggars to tho left of him ; beggars In
Loulslaua, and beggars in Washington;
politicians who could do everything for
him, and politicians who could do nothing
for him ; but all crying llko tho bono
locoh's daughter, "Give, give," and all
wanting tholr slice largo aud thick. Tho
situation calls for sympathy, not censure.
It was an accident which rovealcd tho
situation. Ono bright morning, through
stress of unforieen circumitancos, the gov
ernor romovod from tho state-house to tho
custom-homo so abruptly that ho hadn't
time to tako his prlvato papors with him.
His sbort-livod successors, in clearing out
tho gubernatorial desk propatory to open
ing butlnois, gathered up tbo governor's
loiters, and, having' nothing elso to do,
coolly sat down and commenced reading
them. It was an imporlinont proceeding,
but it dovoloped richness and political
nuggets of tho Isrgott sir.?. First camo K.
C. Billings, a Republican lawyer of New
Orloans. As Mr, Hillings was going away
In a fow days, ho would bo obliged if tho
governor would hsnd a portion
of bis foos to tholr 'mutual friend,'
Mr. Barrett, and being of a ten
guino temperament, his hopes reached the
amount of $5,000. Tho noxt lettor
sbowod that ha got $.,&00. Then comes a
lettor from one Williams, wondoring why
his fees havo boen forgotton. Thon Bil
lings turns up again and writes, "Dear
Governor; Chandler (William E.) Is
working with us, and ho has worked with
us nobly and etl'o;tively. Ho wished mo
to write you about Ibis fees. Having fin
Itbod the first drawor, tho now adminis

old placo-hunter. Ho had rocolved the
governor's letter, but hal been out of

drawing on him for tho 1,000.
Furthermore, "u.u i siaio in proviout

ionl: "I nmglsd to ico that all oppos!
tlen to your administration Is dying nut.
and publio conlldnnoa Is restored. 1 shall
bo happy to sen you when you cwo here."
Cunning Calobl How much was tho
amount of thn next dralt? Then comes
Ron Butler, tbo optlonlst, with his philo
sophical crest and motto, "Coramo je lo
trouvn," taking things as ho finds them ;
and bo thinks that tho amount
which ho will find and tako out to
bo $3,060. Lost tho governor may think
this Is too much, ho reminds him that ho
advised with the counsel who arizued
the Louisiana case in the supreme court,
and that tho court will recogntzo his
claim; hence,"pleaso remit by draft, which
draft will be your receipt." Poor Kol-
logg i i nn noxt man who comes is sena

as Achilles enters In 'La Hello Heleno.'
Ho Is short, sharp, ton, and fiendishly in
earnest. Ho hat only throe- lines to write,
but Whaloly himtolf could not have
nut them moro loelcally. "Doar Kel
