ot W. J Martin, deceased. During uu
Interval of three years before his death,
Mr. .Martin suffered all the toitures of
the damned. Ho was mulcted with the

sumption; but being a poor and deter
mined man he continued uoik in the
oillcc of the Charleston Courier (ot which
paper he was the publisher) as long as he
could stand iijioii his feet orsit hi a chair
for several months, Indeed,
alter any other man of less
determination would havo been in his

paper. A IVv of the good hearted people
of Charleston came to his support; and

has made its appearance every week.
And now that George has shown that ho

but is engaged In a laudable effort to as

and sinters, will not tho good people ol
Charleston second his t'flort by Increas

A Nkw Knc-.i.ami man met a reporter
of the Chicago Inta'-Ocean the other day,
and gravely assured him that Illinois
should urge the name of Hon. John A.
Logan as a compromise Republican can
didate for the presidency. The reporter
saw much force In the suggestion, and
wrote a two-column article about It. the
burden of which is that Logan was a
bravo soldier and would command a
heartier support from tho "soldiers or
the itepubllc" than any man the ltepub
llums could nominate. On this ground'
solely, his nomination is urged. No act
or statesmanship is referred to, lor the
reason that his record in that regard Is
exceedingly barren, lie was a brave and
dashing lighter, nnd, therefore, ought to
be elected President ol the United Stales!
