The Deinoernlic demonstration at
Hodges' pin k yesterday wns a very de
cided suffers, nrtirly live hundred peo
ple were present from varlout parts ol
the district. Including delegations from
Jackson, Union nnd Alexander counties.
The Cairo delegation, which arrived on
the grounds at nhout half past twelve
was by far the largest hailing Iroin any
ono aectKin of country repre
sented. It embracing forty of the Sweep-,
t-n club, in full uniloi in. Jesse Mcll:illle
and Lieutenants Levy, Howe and Parker
as ollleers. Besides a large number of
ladies aud gentlemen.
The Cairo delegation was greeted w ith
loud cheers upon stepping from the cars,
(irand Marshal Phil. Howard, who had
arrived on the grounds by Ihc Iirst train,
formed the Sweepers into line nnd head
ed by the excellent old silver cornet hand.
and Charles Delay's inarlial baud, and
oHlce red by 'uptain Jessa Mcllaflie and
Lieutenants !evy, Howe and Parker, pa
raded to the park under the ndmiriog
ga.eorail present, and halting in front of
the speakers stand, were disbanded.
John (j. Harinan, of this city, stepped
to the front of the stand, and called for or
der. He then nominated for chairman of
the minting Squiro McCritc, who wn
tinaniinou-ly elected. and who stepped tor-
ward and took his seat. Capt. William
M. Williams, of this city, was elected sec
retary, and Win. M. McPhceters vice
ThcTilden and Hendricks' ( lee club,
who accompanied the sweepers, were
then called, and sang a Tildcn and Hen
dricks' campaign song decidedly appro
priate to the occasion. which was heartily
received with loud cheers.
After the glee club had retired, Hon.
William Hart 11 was loudly called for.
Mr. Hartvll was Introduced by Mr.
Harman, and he was greeted cordially.
He spoke for about forty-live minutes.
His speech, a very masterly political ef
fort, was very euthusiasticly received.
At the conclusion of Mr. Hartell's ad
dress, the meeting adjourned lor dinner.
After dinner Uio crowd v:is again
called together by the Sliver cornet band
playing some of Its choicest selections,
after which Mr. F. K. Albright, in re
sponse to numerous calls, apH-ared upon
Mr. Albright after discussing in a very
brief manner the oppression, corruption
and fraud brought upon the K.ople by
Grant and Republican rule, spoke at
some length of himself. He had been
nominated, he said, by the Democracy of
the Fiftieth senatorial district as a candi
date for representative. He had neither
accepted or declined the nomination.
He had, however, through the earnest
solicitation of his friends, in the three
counties, concluded to make the race,
and expected to be elected. He had not
done what he had hoped to do in the
Twenty-ninth general assembly, but
were he again elected he would do bet
ter, much better. He spoke at some
length of his career in the house of rep
resentatives, and said ho was not proud
of his record, but, that he had done con
siderable for his constituents.
Col. R. R. Towncs, of Jouesboro, was
next called. Mr. Tow lies took the stand,
and like Mr. 'Albright, after discussing
at some length the administration ot
Grant, said he wished to speak for a few
moments of himself. He had been nomi
nated by the convention ot the 3rd ot An
gust at Jonesboro, as a candidate for seii'
ator. On the lth inst., another pre
tended convention had been held, and au
other ticket had been nominated. He
claimed to be the true candidate of the
Democracy of the Fiftieth district ; he
would stand at the head of the ticket un
til after the election, and asked his friends
to stand by him. The ticket nominated
by the pretended convention he would re
gard as bolters, aud he would treat them
Mr. Linegar was loudly called upon.
He took the stand and said he would not
make a lengthy speech, as the train was
about due, and he wished to return by
It. He however spoke for about tan min
utes, and bis remarks were loudly ap'
Judge Green was next to speak. He
said that he would not attempt to discuss
the Republican administration. Mr. Lin
egar had said all that could be said. Mr.
Linegar had been In the ranks, had served
under Grant rule, and knows just what
It is. Alter a few remarks, Mr. Green
withdrew amid loud cheers.
Young George Hendricks, ol this city,
also delivered a very creditable, though
short address, after the conclusion ot
Upon Judge Green's retirement from
the stand, loud cries of "Cunningham ,'
"Cunningham," were heard, which, ot
course meant Justus R. the news that
this persevering and eloquent gentlemen
had arrived ou the grounds, having
spread through the crowd. No sooner,
iiowever, did J ustus attempt to mount
the stand, than equally loud cries of
"Mulkey," "Mulkey,",wcrc heard issuing
from the lips of fifty men. Mr. Mulkey
aud Justus mounted the steps almost to
gether, but Cunningham wa& not , to be
outwitted, and stepping quickly to the ta'
ble, upon which he deposited his hat
bowed a bow that lew politicians are able
to bow, wiped his noble forehead with
Ills handkerchief and opened his lips to
till the ears of his hearers wilh the elo
quence of bis silvery tongue, when the
cries tor "Mulkey," became so loud
aud boisterous that he couldn't be heard.
Justui stood this as long as any man
eould stand it, and then became excited,
lie threw his arms about wildly, stamped
his feet aud bellowed, but ull to no pur
pose. The only words our reporter could
catch uttered by hltn were, " It's no use,
boys, I'll make a speech before 1 go or
bust." At this juncture the train arrived
and we took our departure.
We are now receiving direct from Bos
ton aud New York city a full line ol dry

There has never, allien the laying ot
the track of the Cairo and ince mies rail
road, lieen a time when the company has
done a more thriving or paying business
than at present. During the past few
months, very df Ided changes in the run
ning of the corporation have Wn made,
which have not only greatly reduced the
expenses of It, but also added very mate
rially to the convenience and quick trans
portation ot passengers, as well as the
speedy and safe removal of freight, both
from and to the fal. This fact Is further
demonstrated .by the amount ol frieght
daily brought to and taken away from
this city. The road runs two daily
freight trains, that are on ariival and de
parture from Cairo, constantly heavily
loaded, which Is attributed to
the fact that the Yinecnne road
lias the ability to and does hind
freight here from the east in consider
ably less time than it ran be brought by
any other route, and at rales equally as
low. Another fact which demonstrates
the powers of this road, is that until very
recently other roads have had almost the
entire eontrol ol freight shipped Irom the
south to Chicago. Cut the management
of tin; Cairo and Vincemies have finally,
through their endeavors to gain a share
ot this patronage, had their efforts
crowned with success by offering to
shipjie rs inducements whie Ii other roads
do not car.; to outdo, and the prospects
for a good trade between the south and
the great Metropolis of our state very
The Cairo and Yinccnnes road has also
the advantage of other toads in the
quick transportation of passengers to the
east, carrying travelers from this
city through to New York In thirty-seven
hours. 'This would require pnssengers
to sjhmiiI but one night ou the road,
which is a very decided Item in its favor
and has gained for it a paying share of the
passenger business. The Cairo and Yin.
cennt s road is the line from this city run
ning through by daylight to Kvansville,
Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville.
Passengers to the centennial by this
route arc out but one niirlit. The road

Our reporter had a brief interview with
a high otliclal of the Illinois Central w ho
was in Cairo ou Monday, Tho matter
talked about in the Invcrview was the
decision of Judge Baker, ordering the
elevator and warehouse to be taken
down. He said the railroad company
would have to submit to the decision and
would try to do so cheerfully ; would be"
giu takiug down the warehouse and tic
vator within the next two weeks. He
said he did not .see why tho people ol
Cairo should encourage such a suit, as
the railroad company was unxlous to do
everything in their power to benefit
Cairo. He said the clevatoi had never
paid (he company a cent aud was a
heavy burden in the way ol ground rent
and taxes ; but they would be glad
to maintain it at Cairo If allowed
to do so. When we asked him if he w as
wrong iu sayiug the company Intended to
pull dowu the elevator and the ware
house, he said the couipauy'a lawyers
said they would have to come down as
