Thb Governor of Kentucky l,n, in sev
eral instances, very promptly stumped out
lawlessness in that state. His attention is
diiwtcd to the Kukluxism of Ballard
couuty. He should lose no time in getting
liis heel moat accustomed to stumping upon
the nock of this Klan.
Capi. Tiiojua proposes, so we are in-
formed, to make what ho calls "n bloody
shirt campaign." He will talk ulxmt his
wounds, and shoulder his cano and show
how fields were won. Eefore Mr. Allen gets
through with Thomas that gentleman will

The recent heavy rains injured the track
of the Illinois Central railroad on the main
line up in the vicinity of Freeport, in some
places to such tin extent that travel has
been interrupted for several days. A num

away. Forty tons of stacked hay, in n field
near the lino of the road, were carried away
by the flood.
No Congress, no Legislature, no South
ern Illinois penitentiary for the negroes
for the men who put in the majority of the
Republican votes of this part of the State!
In a stagy way we ask the Republican par
ty, in the name of the negro '-Is thy ser
vant a dog that he should endure this
thing''' Come now, be fair; give the
blackmail a chance. Don't, we beg you, lie
so extremely hoggish.
This week, active work cm the Washing
ton monument at Washington will begin.
Four bronze bas-relief will be placed on the
four faces of the monument near the base,
each one thirty by fifteen feet. Scenes in
the life of Washington have been decided on
as follows: Taking command of the army
at Cambridge, surrender of Cornwullis, resig
nation of his command at Annapolis, and
his taking the oath as President at New
Tiie Bargainers who nominated Judge
Laymuu for the Legislature at Caibondale
last week are as little the friends of the
negroes as are the Kukluxof Ballard coun
ty. They vote them us they please, and
kick them between elections. When they
could not induce Judge Bird's friends to
trade with them, they told him to wait and
that sometime in the future tiny would
give him something. But the promise of
the Traders is worth nothing, and the pa
tience of the Bird men will be great if they
any longer serve as the hewers of political
Wood and drawers of political water.
J. Milton Tvuser, Grant's minister to
Liberia, has returned to St. Louis, and is ex
pressing some severe opinions of the Repub
lican party. He declares that the party has
been unkind to the colored element and does
not any longer merit the support of colored
voters. Mr. Turner has a right to speak for
the colored race, and has discovered the
truth about the Republican party ana the
negroes only a little sooner than the ma
jority of his fellows. Alter a while the Col
ored men will learn that their best home is
in the Democratic party. If ever they ob
tain prosperity in this government it M ill be
through the action of the Democ racy of the
several States in which they are numerous.
Iv we were a negro we would not be a
d d fool nigger, and as a consequence
would be a Black Democrat; but if we
were a d d foul negro, and as a conse
quence a Republican nigger, we Would be
very argry about this time at the manner in
which the Republicans of Southern Illi
nois have treated the negroes of this part of
the State. There is Ike Clements wants no
nigirers about the Southern Illinois peni
tentiary, and Davis of the Sun
who wants no niggers about
the Legislature, and all the white Republic
cans who want no niggers about Congress;
and all this in face of the fact thut the
colored meu nre in the majority in the Re
publican party in thispart of the State, and
have in Judge Bird and several other colored
men the best intellect of the party. It is
shameful. If, we repeat, we were a Radical
negro we would be angry, and forever for
At the late Republican State convention
the brilliant Storrs, in a speech reported for
the press but not made to any uudieucc,
impudently declared that President Hayes
had lately joined the Republican party.
This assertion was based upon the policy
lately pursued by the administration. With
a great flourish of reform trumpets President
Hayes entered upon the discharge of his
duties; but lie pursued his policy in weak
ness and has finally abaudoued it in a weak
and characteristically mean manner. He
has become the instrument of the machine,
and permits the political rascals who stole
the presidency for him to control his actions.
In this wuy by abandonment of even the
pretence of independence he has joined
the Republican party, and isentittled totho
applause of men like Storrs who jaugh at
the suggestion of honesty iu miblic ttfl'airs
and accomplish results by the unrruiuluui
Use of falsehoods and money.
The Ivuklux raid of Ballard county ruf
fians last Sunday night upon the inoffen
sive colored farmers living along the bank
of the Ohio opposite this city demands at
tention, and should be punished in the
most speedy maniieV to the full extent of
the law. Of course the better citizens of Bal
lard disapprove the Kukluxism of these law
leas fellows, but they should also take ac
tion iu the necessary work of stamping out
t'.ie Klan of w iping it from the couuty it
is disgracing. Thy negroes who have been
ordered out of Ballard, upon penalty of
death, nre honest and hardworking nun
and women. They have little
farms, and are endeavoring to ac
cumulate little properties and es
tablish homes. They di.-tnrb nobody.
They are law-abiding, and are entitled to
the protection of the law. That a body of
pistol-armed men. riding in the evening or
the night time, should assault these negroes,
order them to leave the country, destroy
their property, heat them and shoot them is
an outrage; and it should be punished
promptly and sufficiently. In this case no
time has been lost. The proper authorities'
have been applied to, the necessary pro
cesses will be issued at once and to-day or
to-morrow six or seven of the murderous
scoundrels will be arrested. They will be
compelled to take the coiiscquencee of their
The Vicksburg Herald of the 12th inst.,
reviews the late speech of Jefferson Davis
and characterizes it as an outspoken, flat
footed, unmistakable, unnecessary and un
wise secession speech. "We are sorry," says
the Herald, "that whatever harm it can do
will be done the already loic-sulT'-riug
South. It will be replied to in the North a
million times, and it will Le assumed every
time that Mr. Davis spoke the true senti
ments of the South.'' The Herald gives
itself unnecessary uneasiness, for the time
has gone by when the utterances of Mr
Davis, and the few men who entertain his
sentiments. can do the South any harm at the
North. After the discussions of the past
thirteen years, the people ut the North have
learned that the people of the South have
accepted the results of the war in good faith
and are anxious to restore to their States
peace and prosperity. It is true the Repub
lican leaders, remembering the affective Use
to which hatred of the Southern people was
put by them for years after the war, are
seeking to revive old prejudices and
old issues; but this cannot be done even
though they receive the cordial support of
Southern men like Mr. Davis. Probably we
shall be compelled to tiuht one or two cam
paigns yet in which the charge of continued
disloyalty will be made against the Southern
people, but we can meet the cliarire and suc
cessfully repeat it as often as it may be
made. The increasing prosperity of the
Southern country and greater security to life
and property that has resulted from the
overthrow of Radicalism in the Southern
States vindicate the Southern people and
prove them to bo worthy of local self-gov
ernment and to be devoted to the Union and
the Constitution with a'.l its amendment.
Mr. Davis may taik secession and Mr.
Tombs extol slavery without injury to the
people of the South. They are regarded at
the North as well as at the South as im
practicable men who stand alone in their
A.N EASTERN COMMENT U'oN-THE ACTION OF
TUE MISM.H 111 AND MIC'llK-AN U'NAEN-
.From the New York Evenhn; Exire.
Two Democratic State conventions were
held on Wednesday, one ut Detroit and the
other at t. Louis. Both were large, im
portant and harmonious, The sentiments
expressed by these bodies, acting w ithout
previous arrangement, and representing two
different sections of country and classes of
people, deserve attention as indicating the
drift of Democratic opinion. The similari
ty of the views expressed bv these bodies,
on the great questions now In-fore the coun
try, shows how Democracy naturally gravi
tates towards, and adheres to certain great
principles of government and views of pub
A noteworthy feature of both platforms,
a feature iu striking contrast to those put
forth by the Republicans, is the bold,
square, downright way in which they state
their views. There Is do plattering in a
double sense, no trying to ride two horses
going in opposite directions, no shuffling
between issues old and uew to catch votes,
to lurking one w ay and pulling the other
to delude the people, no cant nor pretense.
They say just what the people? who made
them mean, and mean to stick to it. They
have the genuine ring of honesty and sin
cerity iu every sentence. And, what is
more important, they meet the new issues
of time in essentially the same way.
Both of the conventions approve the
thorough investigation of the great
electoral frauds, "to "the end that
the truth of history be vindicated and a
repetition of such frauds be prevented."
They throw the blame of the present luisi
ness depression from which the country is
suffering where it belongs, on the Republi
cans, whose unwise legislation and ruinous
extravagance have paralyzed the industry ot
the nation. Ti.ey condemn the favoritism
shown to corporations and uionopolleH by
lb-publican administration, and demand
that the government shall be run in the in
terest ami for the welfare of the people,
They denounce thecoutractionof the curren
cy, which has reduced prices and vnlms to
a ruinous extent. They oppose the contin
uance of the national banking system, and
insist that the government shall' provide ft
cheap uud uniform currency for the people.
In these respects the Michigan and Mis
souri conventions have virtually indorsed
the action of those Pennsylvania, Maine,
Ohio and Arkansas. These conventions
substantially agree on the great questions
before the country to-day. Ohio is sup
posed to hold the most extreme views of
finance. Yet, stripped of rhetorical em
bellishments they substantially agree with
those put forth by the conservative Demo
cracy of Maine. ' Tiny oppose a further
contraction of the current y, demand a re
peal of the national banking law, and call
for a substitution of greeu-backs for nation
al hank notes. Roth agree that gold and
silver together should lie the real money of
the country, as it was in the times of An
drew Jackson and Thomas Jefl'ersoii. These
views are enunciated with equal emphasis
Hast and West, North and South. The
Democracy may dilti ron uiissential points,
but they staiid shoulder t shoulder in
demanding purify of elections and the
punishim i t of election frauds; a tariff
for revenue, with duties as low
as the interests of the government
will bear; honesty and economy in
the admiuistiatioii of the Government; op
position to subsidies to corporations, and
I the protection, of the rights and interests of
tjie woi Kingnien. me iemocraiic party is
the party of the people. It is made up of
workingiueii. The bone and sinew of the
country bcloug to it. It i historically and
on principle opposed to monopolies of all
sorts. It is tiie party of the people in op.
position to classes, the party of labor when
its rights and just driiiauds are antagonized
by consolidated capital. And to-day, in all
parts of the Union, it fronts the real issue
of the time iu demanding that the working
men of the country shall have their full
rights, and that everything shall be done to
relieve the distress and improve the condi
tion of the working pcopie. This is the
Democratic platform by general consent,
and uniting upon it under tried, able and
accomplished leaders, failure is impossible.
HOW THEY KEEP CunL IN FRANCE.
From the Loiidou Sntmhird of June ;s.
The truth is that the best war of fighting
the heat is by avoiding it. If we wish to
escape sunstroke, even in its mitigated form
of languor, lassitude, and drowsiness, we
must keep oiils'-ivis cool: and to do this as
it ought to be done we must take precau
tious against the heat before it bursts upon
us. Those who wish to know how this can
best be effected have only t pay a short
visit to Paris during the sultriest
weeks of August. As soon as the w eather
demands the change, a Frenchman apparels
himself in low shoes and trousers of duck.''
or nankeen: his shirt-coliars expands; his
necktie dwiukits to an apology: waistcoat
he altogether discards: his coat is of thin al
ien a or the lightest Tusore si;i; hi, hat of
white felt r of straw; r.or is he uhaiued to
boldly carry an umbrella. Hishou-e.es-peciaiiy
if it be on the -tinny side of
the street, is regulated with equal
care and forethought. The carpet are
taken up; the le-.ivy jaloii-.
ies are shut before simri". and kept closed
throughout the day; the coiut-ynrd is hour
ly watered; ami iu hoiisl.olii, wiit-re sin.ol
expenses are matter of little moment, a
large bowl of ice and water, or a pyramid
of solid ice. siirr iinoed by ib-wers, forms

Long before tiie Parisians are astir the

Aiong the boulevards and in most of the
principal avenues largo trees gratefully

side, and, instead of the repulsive London
"p'lblic," one collies at every few hundred
yards across some little cafe, with its
awning drawn over the p.ivcinciit, and
with ehaii and marble tabh s, where the

Indeed, of life in h.-t weather, as of life
at tie- seaside and of divtrs other matters
in whieh personal comfort is the chief con-side-ration,
we cann-it but admit, however
reluctantly, that "they manage these things
better in France." The reason, perhaps,
is not so much that we are less careful for
comfort than onr neighbors, as that we
are more governed by commercial instinct.
Serious provision against summer involves
considerable outlay, and in a climate where
we know not w hat a day may bring forth,
people do not believe in a summer till they
see it, and by the time they have taken two
or three days to make sure of it, it may
very possibly have come to an end.
A BRAZILIAN ( MILD VIOLINIST.
The Copenhagen correspondent of the
London Court I 'uvular writes as follows:
"1 dislike exhibitions of fat women. Chinese
giants, or prize pigs that cannot stand on
their legs it is cruelty to unimals in all
three cases; but I still stronger object to a
child being placed in a forcing pit, and at
an age w hen other children play with their
toys is turned out a full-blown artist play
ing on, and not with, a violin in n forced,
nervous, unnatural manner. One of these
human hot-lioiise plants, the Brazilian
chih!, Maurice Dengreinont, is now being
exhibited here by one of these puiveyors of
artistic sensations, ft M. Herman. ' He
that is the child is officially 11 years of
age, but his face looksiiohard and ghast

not mistake: but certainly im human musi

that, of course, is the main point. The

the little Marling.' who receives at least
half a stone of bonbon every evening. He

her own pale f ice, the large, unnaturally

pasteboard. But it wants a Dickens to do
justice to this scene nl'lnnnan misery."
