Whereas, This order was IntcndcJ,
and is so understood bv the country, to
be a threat of military interference in the
political canvass now in progress in such
Mates as are apparently determined to not
endorse the present administration of the
government at the approaching national
election a threat to be followed by the
act ot interference and the suppression ol
the popular will by the use ot the bayo
nets ot the army; and
Whereas, There is no existing condi
tion ot affairs in any Stato to call for the
promulgation of such an order, or to even
excuse it, the laws being in full force aud
effort in each State, with the courts open
aud uninfluenced by fear or swayed by
Wiif.KEA.s, 1 his attempt ol the execu
tive to intimidate citizens in the free ex
ercise of their right to enjoy Ireedoin of
speech and sultragc, to awe ttiem into ac
quiescents in tho existing condition of
public anairs by a tnreat to use the
sword ot the republic, is a dangerous
precedent, and is an act injurious to the
prosperity of the country, eince it alarms

Therefore, we, the Democrats and
other patriotic citizens of Cairo, hereby
resolve as follows :

Resolved, That we deprecate the act of
the administration in seizing upon the
tact ot the adoption of these preambles
and resolution by the Democratic ma
jority ot the house of representatives, as
a pretext lor ordering tue army to ue

istration may desire to control at the ap
approaching presidential election; and
we hereby deuounce this act aa uncalled

any part of the country, and as a men
ace ot our liberties that should attract
the attention and receive the condemna

In justification of this resolution let

But in no Stateof the I nlon is the tight

RrsolrrJ, That the laws bring in full

ol suffrage, as prescribed by tho Fifteenth
amendment, being unquestioned by or in
any state : no acts that can be construed
into an attempt to intimidate any voter
or In any improper way prevent an
citizen Irom exercising the right ol suli
rage. being in tho knowle Ige ol the pub
lic ; we therefore denounce the order of
the war department, dated 15th instant,
above reterred to, as an unnecessary or
der; as a pretext to use intimidation,
force, fraud, and terror to prevent states
from voting against the Republican
party at the approaching presidential
election ; as an attempt to retain the gov
ernment, by lorce. in the hands of the
party now administering it; as a wicked
and unpatriotic political invention to car
ry the states of the south in opposition to
Ihe will of the majority of the people
thereof as n menace and a warning a
threat that the sword and not the ballot
shall control, a warning that the liber
ties ol the people, are in danger.
Resolved, That we invite all patriotic
Republicans to unite with us in condem
nation ol this act of a reckless or thought
less annilnistration. and with us to put
upon It the seal of the public displeasure
by defeating at the polls In November
next the party represnnted by the ad
ministration, the leaders of which en
dorse and applaud this threat to make
the sword hereafter a controling element
in our elections.

Dull is the word to express the condi

the past few days there has not been a
ripple of excitement or activity in the
market. There has been less life dis
played than for many weeks. The
weather has been very hot eince our last
The transactions in the flour trade since
Thursday have been unusually light, as
will be seen by the sales quoted below
Stocks ot all grades are good, but the de
mand at present is exceedingly light.
Many ol our merchants here, however,
feel confident of a very decided change
for the better ere many weeks. Ad
vices from agents traveling in the South
for houses here are very encouraging,
and it is asserted that there are prospects
for an unusually heavy business during
the season. Prices on new flour in this
marKet are easier.
Nearly all the new hay arriving in this
market is in a heated condition, and
shippers are loth to take hold of it. All
that comes in good condition sells well.
There is an abundance ot the heated
stock on hand, but good hay is scarce.
Corn is quiet, and there is very little

for which the demand is limited, but
good, sound, heavy new would bring
Meal is o.uiet. There is no country
meal in the market, neither Is there any
deniani for it. $1 15 would be a trood
price now, but shippers do not care to
scud it in at these figures. City meal Is
in fair supply and dull.
All the butter coming into market is
more or less damaged by the extreme
heat, and sells slow, and stocks are con.
sequent ly accumulating, as people here
waut nothing but choice. Eggs have to
be disposed of on arrival. The weather
is so warm they would spoil in twenty
lour hours. Should a change of weather
come, the market for both butter and
eggs will greatly Improve.
There Is a steady demand for old hens
at $3 25 ; and large spring thickens sell
readily. Small ones are neglected.
Roosters are selling at $1 50 per dozeu.
Peaches are coming into market slow ly,
and sell at the prices last quoted, 60
