The condition ol the new levee, and the
erosions ot the river bank In the vi'eln
Ity of Use new levee, was di.xeussed at
the meeting ot the (ity council on Tues
day evening. The street committee, tin
ucr instructions iroui cue council at a
previous meeting, reported that they had
examined the new levee, aiul also the ac
tion of the water on the river
bank. It is the unanimous pin
Ion of the committee that no
further work Is necessary on the levee
at this time ; but they report that the
river bank tn the vicinity w here the new
levee connects w ith the old one is such as
to demand immediate attention. They
suggest that an effort be made to prevent
the washing away of the large stone pile
in the river near Grave Yard ridge, fear
ing that if this stone pile shall become
detached from tho river bank that the
others below would be cut oil, and thus
endanger both the old and the
new levees. Ihey recommend the
appointment ot a committee
to lay the subject before the government
engineer ot this department, aud the au
thorities at Washington city, pointing
out the great danger that will, result to
nuvigatlou should these rock piles be
come detached from tho river bank.
The report ot the committee was adopted,
and the committee authorized to take
such further action as in their opinion
may seem necessary. The mayor ai-
pointed Aldermeu Thistlewood, Wright
and Patier as a committee to lay the sub
ject before the authorities.

Hon. J. f.
'.r,,r 'hlysi and
MuTROroi.is, Ills., Sept. luth.ls
occasion. At ten o'c-lm-v tt,
people la all this vicinity, and a number
of the citizens of Paducah, Ky., had as
sembled to Hear these champions ot re
form. Col. Watkius occupied the fore
noon In an arraignment of the Republican
party for its maladministration, both na-
tlonal and state. The first hour of his
speech was devoted to showing that there
was great need of reformation in our
state legislation; that the Republican
revenue system of this state placed the
burthen of taxation upon realty and labor
of the country , and that the mammoth cor
porations were almost exempted from
taxation. He concluded by ventilating
the record of the national Republican
party. His speech was a masterly effort,
and was well received.
After the conclusion of the colonel's
sneiH-h. wi all r.uL- t k,...,ia.i
repast prepared by the liberal citizens
i . v.. uvuuuiui i
Dinner over, the Hon. John H. Oberly
was introduced. John began bv say
ing that he would not make a set
speech, but inasmuch as lie was booked
for the occasion, he would make a little
talk. Well, now Mr. Editor, Oberly
may consider a two hours aud u half
speech a small Ulk for him, but we be
nighted sons ot Kgypt, who listened with
rapture to his eloquent appeal to the
reasou of his hearers, concluded if
that was a small talk, we would like
to hear his set speech. He first spoke of
tlie history of the great political parties
that had had an existence In the nation,
extolling the good and denouncing the
the bad of all parties. He held up be
fore the audience the glaring corruptions
that have fiervaded in every department
of the governmet for the past eight years
under Republican rule ; the horrid de
pression brought upon tlie people hy the
finaurial system of the Kepublicau party;
the Infamies of the reconstruction pol
icy, showlug that while tlie South was
under Republican rule there was anarchy
and bloodshed ; that in those states which
had passed into the hands of the
Democracy, peace was restored, pros
perity had returned to their people,
and that In the states of South
Carolina and Louisiana where the Repub
licans are yet in power, the rights of
the citizens, both white and black were
unprotected. He analy ized the platforms
ot the two great political parties, talked
ol the merits and demerits of the respec
tive candidates and closed with an earn
est appeal to all those who desired the
Union restored, who desired peace all
over this great nation, who desired a
return to pronperlty, who desired an
honest and economical administration, to
vote for Tilden and Hendricks. Pledg
ing himself that he who had driven out
corruptions lu tho city ot New Vork;
that he who had broken up tlie corrupt
rings iu the legislature ot the great state
of .New York, could and would certainly
break up the rings and drive out the
thieves in our national councils. Every
body pronounced his little talk a great
spee:h. He however had only spoken
two hours and a half.
Our mission having been pcrlormed at
Brooklyn we returned to Metropolis,
where Mr. Oberly was booked for the
evening. By half past seven o'clock the
court house was literally packed with peo
ple, and at 8 o'clock this John 11. Oberly
who had made In the afternoon a little
talk of two and a half hour, at Brooklyn,
was Introduced to this immense audi
ence to address them. Having
heard his talk 1 thought 1 would now
listen to what he called his speech ; but
now, Mr. Editor, my pen tails me. It is
simply beyond my power to describe.
He so held that audience enchanted by
his eloquence that you could hear tlie
ticking of a watch, save when he was In
terrupted by the tremeudous rounds of
applause that went up from his hearers.
For three aud a halt hours he held th'it
audience as with a magic wand, lie held
up before his audience all the short-coming
of the Republicau party, and pointed
theu to the ouly remedy the success of
Tilden and Hendricks, showing conclu
sively that the Democratic party had al
ways been the friend ot the people ; that
IU legislation had always beeu directed
in the interest of tlie masses, in the Inter
est of tho labor of the couutry, aud tha1
under its rule the burthen of taxation fell
equally upon all citizens of tlie govern
His ieeches In tills county had a tell

During the meeting It w as suggested
by ex-Mayor Thomas Wilson that the
county Democratic central committee
ought to call a convention for the pur
pose of nominating candidates for
county offices. Mr. Wilson urged the
importance of holding a convention tor
this purpose, at some length. Judge
Green agreed with Mr. Wilson, and
also made some remarks on the subject.
When Judge Green had done speaking,
John Sheehau moved that a vote be taken
to ascertain the sense of the club on this
question. The vote was taken, and car
ried without a dissenting voice. It is the
opiuion of all that the county central
committee should call a convention for
the purpose ot nominating candidates for
shcrifl, circuit clerk aud coroner.

tlie committee on uniforms to order fifty
new suits for the use ot the club. The
