it-certain the eati-cs of this eoiidltlon of
nllalrs, have round It where the casual
observer would never have seen it have
found it In tho fact, thai Lower Kirvnt
and indeed all of Southern Illinois-has
been over .-hadoweil In the pol
itic of the commonwealth by
the uoitherii and middle pa its of tlio
State. There is always hostility between
the Noith and the South, and tho section
alism that created ihecoullict In the l.'uloti
between the Northern nml Southern
States, will be found to exist, tit least in u
decree, In every State that stretches from
the North to the South. Ktnpire, taking
Us way westward, found its path across
Illinois above the northern line of Kgypr,
and dropped population then that speedily
overshadowed the population of this part
o( the State. The power of this popula
tion was soon felt in the leNlatlon ol
the State to the disadvantage ol the
Southern counties; mid its dominant;
power was al.so soon developed in our
political orpauintlons. Northern and Mid
dle Illinois have, during many years, not
otuy nictated lejilslation in Illinois but
have controlled parties ; and Southern
Illinois has submitted with a patience
that has given all observers n high opin
ion of her meekness.
It may be said that this has not re
tarded the prosperity of Kuypt : but we
are sure it has. We. have not time to go
Into nn elaborate nrirument to move our
position, but we confidently aert that,
It the territory south of Sprlnglli Id In

reason to believe he will gain In strength

tliat he will be nominated by the

tliat ho ought to be. The Demo

sonic of the New England States, the

to be a decided outcropping of sentiment
in Ills favor. Indiana Is, of course, pro.

second in the estimation of tho Demo
