Among the tno-t notable celebration;
of the National Holiday hi Illinois wa
that in the State penitentiary at .toilet.
Major .VtcClougliry. the warden, tried an
experiment, for which there Is no prece
dent In the history of the IIHnoN peniten
tiary. At a given -igual, the door, of
the cells were thrown open, the convict
inarched in their imtal order and formed
In maed column at the further end ot
the wing. Then they were marched in
frotit of the balcony and halted. Here
they were informed by the warden that
they were to celebrate the Fourth ome
what In the fashion of free American.
For two hours they could walk,
talk to each other and olherwie aiiui-e
thciutclvcs. lie told tliein thai, (or the
time specllled, he put them on their good
behavior, tru-ted to their honor to con
duct themselves deeorou-ly and to do
nothing which would cau-e him to regret
that lie had allowed them the freedom
of the cell hou-e. He then ordered them
to break ranks and enjoy tliemelvi as
Three hearty cheers were given by the
prisoners for the governor, and three tor
the warden. The men then scattered and
for two hour ehcerfiilne- and jollity
ruled the place. Those of the convicts
whocould dance, kept time to the nut-lc
with a will , and here and there might be
seen boxing going on In good uatured
style, foot racing, band springs and
tumbling, all watched with delighted in
tere-t by the hundreds of fellow-convicts
of thd iJerfornier. At the cloe oftln.
two hour, the prisoners Joined with
Prof, and Mrs. Itllss, accompanied hy tho
band, In singing the national hymn. The
tap of the drum was the signal for the
prisoners tore-form hi line, and in tlfteen
minutes no-Ignoftlie tiniMial episode
in the prison discipline remained. Tho
men were back In their cells and the
usual onler and quiet reigned. Tho ex
periment demonstrated that .Major Me
Cloughry's confidence in (lie prisoners
was not misplaced, and that though re
moved from ordinary Intercourse with
their fellow-men by reason of their
crimes, they arc still po-.essc-d ol many
traits honorable to human nature and
which It requires only.kiiulne-s, tempered
by wise discipline, to bring out.
There weiv, in the Soutli, thl .oar,
two uotable celebration- of the Fonrtli of
July, one ot which will till the Demo
emtio heart of Mr. Potter, the Independ
ent Heform man of the Mound City Jour
mi, with Intense pain, and the other
make him glow with Uourbonle pica
wire. At Memphis, Tennc.-ee. the day was
almost entirely monopolized by the lie
groes. The Pole-Uearcr., a very power

anil the white jieople-oml, honest,
true-blue Democrat', much had blood lias

Vlck-burg A-oeialed Pre reporter remark-,
that "onie dlllleiilly occurred
amongthe audience during the speaking
about 1 o'clock, when tiring commenced.
Seven negroes were wounded and three
unknown negroes fatally -hot." N'e
shall certainty have Mr. Potter elaborate
ly arguing, while he denounces (leu. For
rest, that the "-omedllhVulty" that occur
red was all oeca-lonei) by the 1'apU of the
negroes, which n-eiihin he will prove by
referring to the fact, that seven negroes
were wounded and three killed while
only one w hite man, .lohn Hill, U .sup
posed to be niortally wounded. At the.
next Democratic eoiigre-Monal conven
tion Mr. Potter will probably procure the
Pulaski county delegation to Introduce
tho following :
ISesolved, That the conduct of Oen.
Forre-t anil other pretended Democrat
In attending a negro celebration on tho
Fourth of .Inly, was Injurious to the ne
gro, degrading to the Cauea-lan race and
meets tho condemnation of all white men
who are true to the Instincts of their race
and the tradition of the Democratic
party ; hut that we heartily approve the
action ot the while Democrats at the
nigger celebration ol tho fourth at
Vlck-biirg, where after repealed provoca
tion by nigger claiming to be entitled
to the. right and privileges of American
citizens they killed only three and
wounded only -even r t tmrm'tent
'Jtwtrcil, That John Hill, the w hite man
who wa- killed In tho dlllleiilly, sacrificed
hi life in the cause of the Democratic
party and his memory -hould be held hi
sacred recollection by all white men
who still have pride in their race."
Hut badinage aside, is it not about
time the Democrats of .SoutligfcrIllluoi
were learning t' e fact that the ncgroc
have become citizens and cannot
be crushed out by blow.- and bullets ; that
it ! much wi-cr to treat them in the Mem
phis manner than in the Vicksburg.-tyle;
that the first bn-Ines of their white Vel-low-citizens
should be to elevate, ihem by
education and by goo'd advice and Kind
words? Should not the Democrats of
the Potter school cease to cry out "Uc
publican," when a Democrat -ay.-: "These
people should be educated, nol kicked ;
elevated, not manufactured lulu corpse-?"
Is It not about time Democrats ceased
to be -ciislllve about slavery,
secession and what Jeilcrson
calls human equality? Kvcn yet a man
claiming to be a Democrat innt he care
