In the commencement of his toaiiinini
cation, Wlllielm" Indulges In a disser
tation upon political corruption. II lie
means any thing by thlc, he means to In.
sinuate that the gentlemen who supported
Messrs. .Saflbrd and Strattou went into
the market and "got" votes. He must
know that this is not true. Messrs. .Saf
lord and Stratton arc not politicians, and
are as honest, as careful ot the polls, as
Messrs. Harrcll and Mctcalf. Wc do not
believe that cither of the four gentlemen
named attempted in any improper man
ner to influence even one vote.
But of what would 'Wllhclm" com
plain r Wc believe that the school board
should be economical, and wc believe It
will be. Some of the heaviest tax-payers
of the city are on the board, and wc do
not believe they will throw away their
own money. What we object to iu the
actions of the board, U lu secrecy. We
would like to attend lu meeting occa
sionallywould like to take an interest
In Its proceedings. Hut how can we?
The board meets where? and when?
and what does It do when it does meet?
The county commissioners and the city
council meet In public at stated times,
and the board of education should protlt
by their example. No public body that
expends public moneys should meet In a
quiet manner, and by Itself, excluded
from the public eye, do Ita work.

WHAT IH; I.ATK CITi I'l.t'l.'IIOJf !
It U cmtomary among ollliv-holuVrg
In these degenerate days to act iu accord
ance with the wishes of the party which
elected them, regardless of the opinions
ol the minority, be It ever so large or In
telligent. It Is needless to say Unit thU Is wrong ;
more especially at the present time, when
among a certain class of people a vote Is
n. much an article of merchandise as
gold in Walt street or goods on the shelf.
Among such people every election day is
great auction snle, where votes are sold
to the highest bidder; some votes being
an X, some a V, others can be bought lor
dmm and still others can even bo had
for a little Jaw.
The majority is thus Invariably upon the
side which has the most vote purchasers
(electioneered n they nrc mildly termed)
out. These are lacts sad, but stern tacts,
which no one will contradict. Such a
stale ot affairs makes It very doubtful In
deed that the majority of the votes cast
arc really the voice of a majority ol
honest voters voters who pay taxes for
the support of local government, and are
interested lu the economical admlnls
tratlou of public adulrs.
The opinions ol tho minority party at
our late city election are certainly en
titled to consideration 011 the part ol the
newly elected directors, because, first
they were entertained by nearly one halt
of the voters, and secondly, because that
minority (?) counted within Its ranks
some of our heaviest taxpayers, anyone
of whom pays more taxes per annum
for school purposes alone, than ten an
perhaps llfty ol the class above referred
to. pay altogether, and .who probably
voted, were induced to vote, a"nliit Hie
For theso rea-sons, ai.d several other?,
which I may have occasion to mention
hereafter, I beg the gentlemen who have
lately assumed ollieial honors In the capa
city of school directors, to kindly turn an
attentive ear to the following, what 1 be
lieve to be "teachings of the late election."
I think It is generally known that Ihc
defeated candidates were the advocates
of retrenchment in our public school ex-pcn'-i's,
and as neatly one-half ol the vot
ers east their voles for these candidates,
wc must conclude that the opinions ol
the candidates wercsharcd.by I lie voter,
and that therefore tho election teaches.
Ilr.t : That nearly one-half of the voters
of the city ol O'alro, and very ItUly morn
than one-half ol le, iat tayers are oppos
ed to the manner hi which our public
school funds arc being sun!.-.
Whatever may be said of the
excellence ol our public schools
and the good reputation they have ob
tained abroad, it is a fact that that excel
lence and reputation arc kept up at an
enormous expeusc, and what is worse, a
volatiou of law ; an expense which wc
cannot only not all'ord, but which is far
beyond our means, and a violation ot law,
which If preslstcd lu and justified will
lead to greater violations and terminate
lu the utter disrespect of the iicoplc'
laws on the part of ofllclals.
That our lormcr board of directors did.
lu several instances, disregard the statutes
of the State bearing upon our public
schools, is well known, and as obedience
to the State laws conforming the
branches of study and the use ol text
books to the provisions ot our laws
was one of the planks lu the platform
upon which the defeated candidate
stood, wc must conclude that the late
election for directors teaches, secondly
That nearly one half of the voters and
very likely more than one-half of the tax
payers of the city of Cairo, are opposed
to Uils disregard on the part of the direc
tors ol the statutes of the State.
IJfUALLM Ol'T A.ND MEIUS Iff.
Gen. Itufus Ingalls, who has been act
ing quartermaster for about two years,
has been displaced and Gen. Meigs, the
real Incumbent of the position, has re
turned bis labors.
It was known some weeks ugo that
Meigs had suddenly been telegraphed to
by cable, to return from his eighteen
month' tour abroad, upon which the
President had ordered hlra, with a view,
as supposed, to oitn the way to the In
stallation or tngalls as quarter-master
general. It has leaked out that the Presi
cent took' the alarm when a resolution
wm Introduced Into the house a few weekn
a-jo, calling upon the secretary of war to
Inform the hou: under what authority,
for what object, and at what expense
to the public General Mclgn had been or
dered to vWU Kuroi, ami that Grant
found tliis resolution would U: followed

demanded to Ikj restored to the
untie 01 ins uuice. 'litis was
not what the president had desired as he
did not wish to throw Gen. Ingalls oyer
board. Hut Secretary Tall and Gen.
Sherman work well In harness together.
It appears, and these two had decided
that the good ot the m .tvIcc, and because
Melgi had on undoubted right .to the
quarter-master geiieral'H oiikc, required

Grant's equivocal conduct towards Urn.
Ingalls, reprcMCntiug to him that he
should not be displaced by Gcu. Mclgs
and then consenting to the reinstate
ment ot Meigs a few hours after
ward, Is very severely criticised by mu
tual friends of both parties.
