mittee, l the true course to be pursued
in again restoring harmony in Demo
The following is the pliiu adopted by
the committee, which we have received
Irom Mr. W. II. Morris, the chairman :
Cairo, 111., Sept. 7, 1876.
To the Democracy ol the Fiftieth Senato
rial Didtrict :
Your senatorial committer held a meeting
at Anna on Ihe evening ol Sfjiteiuher llth,
1470, to consider the petition for a new
convention. As is well known to you, a
considerable dissatisfaction exists with re
gard to the action of the Jonesboro conven
tion. II this dlsatlslsctlon was confined to
a tew individual only, we should have dis
regarded it, but the petitions Lave been
signed by a MinVlent number of Democrats
to demand, in our judgment, some action
on our part to re-tore harmony to the par
ty. We luve acted singly with an eye to
the good ol the par y, and the plan upon
which we have decided, we believe to be
one whichever) Democrat in the district
should heartily enJor.e ss a fair solution ot
all difficulties, andocew bieb should restore
unity of action to the party.
There belin a vacancy ou the ticket,
caused by the withdrawal of Mr. Oocrly as
candidate for representative, a majority of
your committee decided to call a new con
vention to nil the vacancy, recommending
to the committee of the several counlHs,
through their chairman, that such action
ha taken wi h regard to the nomination of
a ticket ae they believe to be in accord with
the wishes ol a majority ot the Democracy.
If it shall be determined by the convention
that tbe best interests of the party demand
a new ticket, then let tbe convention nom
inate one ; but if on the other band, it shall
be deeltred that the interests of tbe party
will be best subset ved by the ticket remain
ing as it is, tbcQ let the com ention retuae to
take any action with regard to the present
nominees. We have accordingly notified
each chairman of the several county cen
tral committees loca'l conventions In their
re peclive counties to nominate delegates
to the general convention named. to be bald
at the court house In Jonesboro, ou the 18th
day of September, IsTti, at 2 o'clock p. m.
In consideration of the action ot the
committee, and that all trouble between
the supporters and enemies of Messrs.
Tow nes and Albright may be at once
settled, Mr. W. H. Morris, chairman ot
the Democratic senatorial committee, has
addressed the following letter to Mr.

Cairo, III., Sept. 7, 1S7C.
Since the last Issue of the Prick Clr
rest, business In every branch, as will
be observed by the number of sale quo
ted, hs been very good and the feeling
among our business men Is mnch better
than for months heretofore. Although
money In thla section of country 1 light,
as it is everywhere throughout the coun
try, and though hard times are com
plained of, yet it is the general belief
among our old and most clear-headed and
reliable merchants that the time is not
far distant when we shall again greet
much of the old vigor and life iu busi
ness circles. Business and travel on both
the rivers and the various railroads Is
quite active. The steamers that pass this
port are all well laden with freight and
carry crowds of passengers, cither going
to or returning from the centennial, and
our wharf presents a cheering and pleas
ant spectacle. The weather baa been
pleasant, a splendid rain having fallen on
Wednesday, cooling the atmosphere and
ridding our streets of the choking and
disagreeable dust. Hates to the South
arc not changed.
The transactions wldt our dour mer
chants have been very fair since Monday,
though a slight falling off In the demand
Is observed. Liberal shipments are re
ceived, which keep the market well
stocked, the only scarcity being In low
grades. Of these there a very light sup
ply. There Is a greater demand for
them, than for any other quality. Prices
Hay is very quiet There has been but
very little shipped, and the order trade
Is exceedingly light, leaving the market
as last reported, lull, w ith no sale lor it.
The receipts ot corn have been heavy,
and prices have declined about two cents,
owing to a falling off in the demand.
Choice heavy oats are scarce. There is
a very good demand for them. They
will bring, if really choice, 35 cent.
Meal and bran are very quiet. Fresh
butter and eggs will always find ready
sale. There is very little choice butter
here. Poultry is in lair supply and sells
well. Choice peaches are wanted.
ftaT'Our friends should bear in mind
that the prices here given are usually tor
sales from first hands in round lots. In
filling orders and for broken lots it is
necessary to charge an advance over
Choice and medium grade ot flour are
In good supply. Low grades are scarce
and iu good demand. Prices are un
changed. We note the sale of 300 bbls.,
various grades, $3 000 00 ; 100 bbls.,

The market is fully stocked. There
Is more hay here than can be disposed of.
there being no demand. We note the
sale of 1 car, choice Timothy, $13 00.
Under heavy receipts there is an abun
dance of corn here. The demand Is very
light and pi ices have declined. The

47c ; 400 sacks in dundees, 40c ; 1 car lu
bulk, 40c; 600 sacks, white, 43c.; 150
sacks, white, 42c.

Bran is plenty and dull ; tbe only sale
noted was that of 100 sacks, $10 60.
There Is no shipping demand whatever

Is being done. City meal is held at $2 35,
country at $2 20. There Is a fair supply
ot city, but very little country meal on
Choice butter Is always wanted. There
Is plenty of common here, which Is slow
sale. We uote the sale of 200 lbs choice
