where It N not laughed at as an absurd
Itv. Clements would be the choice of
the Democrats. They arc morally cer
tain lo elect Nartell, or whoever may bu

wish to feel assiiicd that they have eon
tended against the full strength of the

'I'hu editor of the Oolcouda Herald
does not take kindly to the "gallant Col.
onel .MclCealg." He bristles up like the
angered porcupine at tho bare mention oj
the colonel's name lu connection with a
candidacy for congress; and de
clares with absolute poltlvc
nes that "he won't do." The
lleratd man's reasons lor ill-liking
"tho gallant colonel" may bo many and
forcible; but Ihe single reason urged that
when near Vickaburg "ho called his sol
diers a pack of lop-eared hounds," Is not
sulllcicnt, for his atonement tor that has
been ample, lie never speaks of them
now wilhout blessing them as "the coun
try's brave defenders ;" "the heroes who
woie llieblue ;" "thenation's pride," etc
l.ogau d d them as Lincoln's Hessians ;
and Logan is the llertihl'x ideal ol n great
man. McKcalg spat out, In a single sen
tence, all the anger he'ever felt toward
them 5 but ".Meh'ealg won't do." Why,
.Mr. Jfmitil, this llsh r one and llesh of
(lie other'; lie calm, and answer.
Lrni.i: Lin.v S.u'r, daughter of l'liilip
and Kmma Snnp, Is, pcrliap-, the only
child In Cairo who had two great-grandfathers
living at the time of her birth ;
and she Is, most likely, tho only child In
the whole West who had two living great-graud-f.it
lier, one of whom was
old enough to be thu grand
father ol the other. Dr.
D. Artcr ol this city, seventy-eight years
ol age, and George Smith of Manstleld,
Ohio, aged one hundred and thirteen,
were the great-grand-fathcrs. Had Smith
been the father of a daughter at eighteen,
(which might have been tho case) that
daughter might, at seventeen, have given
birth to Dr. Alter. Hence, the great
grandfather .Smith, might have been the
fraud-father ot t lie grcat-graud-father
Ami now Kx-Seerctary llelkuap comes
forward and publicly denies that he con
fi?cd his guilt before the Clyincr com
mittee or elsewhere. In a public, card ho

While there icmahis upon the public

not cure, and that disease Is cancer, lie
does not recommend his discovery for
that dlscae, yet he knows It to bo the
most searching blood cleanser yetdlscov
eicd and that it will free the blood and
system of nil other known blood polons
