Or.N.Ciuui.K Lk.k, who had the honor
.f being sworn ut by the father of his
country, usvd to say, says an exchange,
'that the Declaration of Independence con
tained only two grammatical sentences."
After rending this we read the work of our
printers, as displayed in tho composition of
several articles original with us, and felt a
pride in tho fact that nobody could truth
fully say our editorials were as ungram
matical us the Declaration.
Our friend B. O. Jones, of the Massac
Journal, whoso only shortcomings arc Re
publicanism and poetry, informs us that
the Republican party "restored tho 'old
flag' to its accustomed moorings, undimmcd
by tho loss of a single star." Why did Mr.
Jones stop at the half-way house of praise?
Why did he not tell us that not only did the
Republican party restore the old Hag to its
accustomed moorings, but that it also ran
the old ship of state up to the top ofthe
Hag stnT of the Republic and allowed her
to sail with all her canvass spread over a
land united and disenthralled! This would
have climaxed the mooring figure.
With delightful indefiniteness the
Pulaski Patriot says: "The Republicans of
Johnson county have again shown their
hand and gone back on Pulaski county, just
as a great many predicted." Why should
the Republicans of Johnson county "go
back" on those of Pulaski county, ami how
have they done so? We hope they have;
and we hope this going back habit into
which the Republicans of Johnson seem to
have fallen will prove to be what the Pa
triot says it is a "very suicidal policy."
Can it be that our friend Kuykendall is in
any way Responsible for the meanness of the
Republicans of Johnson? If so he may not
get to Springfield. He may le com
pelled to stay at home and work for n
living. But Kuyke is a sly fellow Old
Bagstock, you know and he may have
kept his fingers out of the pie that seems to
be offensive to the palate of Pulaski Repub-
UeiiM. Kuyke is likely to not make a fool

JONES ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
The Massac Journal says the Republican
party is essentially the party of universal
lilalty. It is not. It was compelled by
circumstances to reluctantly become the
emancipation party; but it did not take
this position until the events of the war
forced it to do so. Before the war, it resent
ed the charge that it desired the abolition
of slavery; and tho lamented Lincoln not
only considered the fugitive slave law'con-
stitutional, but by a threat compelled the
party to refusj to permit any expression
denunciatory of that law to be put in its
platform. This fact Mr. Jones should know;
and knowing the fact, he should have the
candor to admit that it is true.
"When civil war raised its patricidal arm
to strike down tin1 government," says Mr.
.bii"s. buMing into eloquence; "when
(P'.'ivi.i. like u fell assassin, sought to
destroy .he glorious fabric, and erect a
I sluvi '-holding aristocracy an American
1 feudal system more intolerable
' than that which deflowered Europe
J in the dark ages then this Re
I publican patty rushed to the front of bat-
tic, mill through blood and sulTcring res-
cued the government from the treason and
traitors that environed it." Mr. Jones Is
woefully Ignorant of facts, or else he would
not make well an assertion as this. The
truth is, that, at the time of the secession
of tho Southern States, the Republican
viarty did not look upon the departuro of
those States from the Union with regret.
Most of the Republican papers nndstatesmen
of the Unit were anxious, with Wendell.Phil
lips, to "speed the parting guest." Even Pres
ident Lincoln wan an opponent of coercion,
and desired and intendod to permit tho Se
ceded States to remain out of tho Union
until they should conclude to come back
into it on their own volition. He and his
cabinet accepted the cardinal dogma of the
Secessionists; and, if tho rebels had refrain
ed from the net of firing upon the flag, the
Republican party could not have been
forced into a war for the Union. These
:.re a few facts Mr. Jones ought to know.
We commend them to his consideration.
DEATH OF SIDNEY BREESE.
The unexpected death of Judge Sidney
Breese, at the home of his son in Pinckney
ville, on Thursday last, was received in
Cairo yesterday, and occasioned profound
sorrow among all classes of citizens. His
name was familiar to almost every person
in Illinois. Long hi-fore his death it had
become a household word throughout the
The deceased was born on the 15th of
July, 1800, at Whitesltoro, Oneida county,
New York. His father was Arthur Breese,
u native (Jf Shrewsbury, Monmouth county,
New Jersey. His mother was Catherine
Liviugstunc, of Dutchess county, New
Sidney Breese graduated with distinction
in 1 SI 8 from Union College, Schenectady,
New York. He removed to Kaskaskia
withn a few years after 1816, and in 1820
was admitted to the bar at that place. He
commenced the practice of his profession
at Brownsville, Jackson county. In 1821
he was appointed xstmastcr of Kaskaskia,
and in 1822 was appointed Attorney
for the Second Circuit by Gov. Bond,
and held tho office for five years.
In 1931 he published the first
book ever published in Illinois Breese '
Itrports of the Supreme Court Decisions.
In 1S32, he took part in the Black Hawk
war as lieutenant-colonel. In 1835 he was
elected Judge of the Second Circuit. In
1841 he was elected to the Supreme Court.
In 184i he was elected United States
Senator. In 1850 he was elected
to the Legislature and was made Speaker
of the House. In 1855 he was again
elected Circuit Judge, and upon the resig
nation of Chief Justice States was elected
a second time to tlte Supreme Bench, and
remained in the court Until the time of his
death. In 1823 he was married to Miss
Eliza Morrison, second daughter of William
Morrison, of Kaskaskia.
This is in brief the life of the distin
guished man whose death has len just an
nounced. In its details it was a history of
Illinois, for he was an actor in nearly every
event that has distinguished the State. He
reflected luster umn all the positions oc
cupied by him, and was generally recog
nized as a man of distinguished abilities.
He lived a useful life, and in death will be
honored and lamented by all the people of
AN HISTORICAL WOMAN.
M'mepattcrson-Bonapartiyas she is com
monly culled, is not ton old she is about
ninety-three to defend her rights, judging
by the fact that she recently appeared as
plaintiff in a law suit in her native city of
Baltimore. Standing by her rights is some
thing she has always done; her unwilling
ness to relinquish any part of them having
rendered her historic. It is more than seventy-four
years since she accepted the hand
of Jerome Bonaparte during his visit to the
United States, and was married at once by
the bishop of Baltimore, John Carroll,
brother of Charles Carroll, of Currollton.
Jerome remained in the country a year, vis
iting various cities with his wife and em
barking for E1rol"! i the spring (1805).
and arriving safely at Lisbon. -The news
of the marriage whs anything but pleusant
to the Napoleon, partly because his brother
hud taken a wife without consulting him,
und partly because he had far ino-e ambi
tious views for his family. Consequently,
he refused to recognize tlieAmerican union,
and forbade the couple to land at any
port under French authority. Jerome
parted from his wife with great tenderness
at Lisbon, to hurry to Paris, hoping; to
change the resolution of the emperor, and
ordering the vessel to sail to Amsterdam.
Reaching there, Mine. Bonaparte was
not allowed to quit the ship, and so shn
was obliged to go to England. She made
her residence at Camberwell, near London,
and in the following July gave birth to a
son, Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte.
Slit; never suw her husband after
his leaving her ut Lisbon, except once many
years after, when she met him accidentally
without speaking, in the picture gallery of
the I'itti, at Florence. Jerome, originally
much in love with her, tried in vain to
soften his imperial brother, and was finally
compelled to wed the Princess Frederica
Caiherine, of Wuiteinliurg. Napoleon
labored hard to induce ' Pope Pius VII to
declare Jerome's (list marriage null and
void; but the I'duiiif stubbornly and per-
sistent! y declined. Mine. Piitteison-Bonii
parte bus spent most of the lust titty years
m lliilliiuorc in the enjoyment ot aliumlant
means ami in an intense admiration of the
Napoleon tribe, notwithstanding their out
rageous treatment of her. She was a most
enthusiastic advocate ofthe emperor while
he lived, and has always cherished, und
still cherishes the hone, It Is said, that some
one of her descendants will usceud the
throne of Fiance.
JNTEIIKSTISO INTERVIEW WITH CONOHEsS
MAN KWINO-SENATOR THIUMAN A CAN
DIDATE KOK THE PRESIDENCY.
New York, June 17. Thomas Ewiug,
congressman from Ohio, is in thu city, and
to-day during an interview on various top
ics he said there is but little doubt thut
Senator Thurman is one of the many Dem
ocratic candidates for the presidency, From
all that he has been able to sec Mr. Til
den's chances for renomination, so far as
the west is concerned, are slim.
HIS FINANCIAL VIEWS.
When asked what were his ideas on
finance, he said : I believe in tho re-enactment
by congress of laws to substitute
treasury notes for bank notes, und to make
greenbacks receivable for custom duties;
to authorize an unlimited coinage of silver
dollars and the issue of certificates of sil
ver bullion, and to establish United States
notes us the sole ami permanent paper cur
rency of the country. I would regulate the
issue by law. I look upon the attempt to
return to specie payment by a contraction
of the currency as fatal in its consequences
to the business interests of the country.
This contraction policy has caused a loss in
shrinkage of Tallies, etc., of $120,000,000
to the country, or virtually added that
amount to the bonded debt. It has caused
suffering and great loss of property and a
waste of the protective industry, and has so
increased the effect of the burdens of all
debts, public and private, as to threaten re
pudiation. THE INVESTK1ATIOX.
