Bishop Chenet, of Chicago, has issued

Two interesting Napoleonic relics have
been lately added to the British Museum ; one
is a chart of Cadiz bay, sent by Napoleon
Bonaparte to Joseph Bonaparte in 1809, the
other a beautifully written volume of
French songs, set to niusic,in the handwriting
ofllortense, Queen of Holland, mother of
Louis Napoleon. Some of the Bongs which
arc contained in it aro said to huve been
written by the Compte do la Garde; the
first is "Lc Beau Dunois,"known as "Pnrtant
pour la Syria."
On the eve of -the Carbondule convention
certain Cuiro Republicans dissatisfied with
Cupt. Thomas, started the charge that lie, us a
lawyer, collected money for a client und used
that money for his own purposes, refusing
to pay it until he liecanio a candidate for
office, and then only under a threat of ex
posure. This was the club which was to be
used at Carbondule to break Thomas' back
bone. To meet it Capt. Thomas, it was
said, had in his possession documents to
disprove it. Once on the ground the Cairo
Republicans lost nerve, smothered their
charges, and allowed Thomns a walk over.
The charge did not die. For prudential rea
sons it was allowed to slumber. Was tho
chargo started by Republicans of Cairo
against Cupt. Thomas true? Will the Un
iversal Brother answer?
We learn from the Vicksburg Herald,
that, with the exception of a few favored
localities in Mississippi and Louisiana, the
crops ure very seriously injured by the wet
weather. "Cotton planters claim," says the
Herald, "that nothing like tho weather that
we had in June, and are having now, was
ever experienced in this latitude before.
Tho weather has been wet and unfavorable
to growing crops for ovei six weeks. The
heavy ruins have overflowed the valleys;
but worse than that, they have so forced
the growth of weeds and grass that the
whole crop hus been seriously damaged,
and a large portion of planted land lias
been abandoned. Then the excessive
moisture in the earth has caused cotton to
grow so fast that there is much less fruit
on the stalk than there should be. In many
instances corn locks as if it had suffered
from drouth, and is totally ruined. Q Wc
hear of a few planters who claim thut they
will make over half a crop of corn and cot
ton, and somo say they will fail almost
wholly. Altogether the outlook is gloomy
The luminary dodges. It says: "The
Bulletin does not give any evidence of the
truth of tho charge he published yester
day," and that its "mind was set at rest by
TnE Bulletin which a day or two before
the convention declared thut Cupt. Thomas
had the document in his possession to dis
prove any such chargo if made." Tho
chargo which The Bulletin published was
made upon Republican authority, and was
circulated by Republicans, to injure Capt.
Thomas at Carbondule. Tho stutcmciit that
Cupt. Thomas had in his possession a docu
ment to disprove tho charge was also made
upon Republican authority. For tho truth
of the charge or the denial of it The Bul
letin docs not vouch. What wo wunt to
know of tho Uuiversul Brother is: Did
Cupt. Thomas as a lawyer collect money for
his client ami use that money for his own
purpose, refusing to pay it until ho became
a candidate for office, and then only under
a threat of cxjMisurc. If this charge, origi
nated and circulated by Republicans, is
untrue, the Sun has only to deny it. Wu
therefore repeat our question: Is the
charge against Cupt. Thomas true, and cull
upon the Sun, as a Republican organ, to
When the names of members of theNa-
tionul-Grcenbuck-Lnbor Club wjre being
enrolled, at tho court-house on Wednesday
last, Mr. J. II. Metcalf, in a very ;loud uud
determined voice, announced that the Na
tionals did not expect nor want any bond
holder or nntional bunker to beconte a mem
ber of tho club. Aud, indeed, this seems to
bo the spirit of tho National party hatred
of every citizen who lias invested his money
in banks or bonds. Mr. Metcalf evidently
does not understand his own party1, and, in
deed, his party docs not conform' its prac
tice to its precepts. At Springfield, some
time ago, tho National party of Illinois, put
into nomination for state treasurer tho kind
of a man tho Nationals delight in denounc
ing. They nominated (preferring him to
bucIi a man as Kewaneo Smith) Gen. Bates,
a gentleman who made his money by olllce
holdiug, nnd who is, or has been, both bond
holder nnd national banker. More than this.
It wns Gen. Bates, who, at tho head of
twelve hundred soldiers, crushed out tho
oppressed laboring men, who wero engaged
in a strike at Eust St. Louis lust July. We
do not wish to disparage Gen. Bates. On
the contrary, wo do not hesitate to say he is
a believer in tho greenback theory notwith
standing his national bank and bondhold-
ing faults, and that ho is a friend of tho la
boring man notwithstanding ho used the
bayonet to crush laborers protesting by a
strike against the hardships of their lot.
But we do mean to gay that Mr. Metculf,
und the other National enthusiasts, should
not, while speaking of bondholders and na
tional bankers, use the tone und language
of men who hate all other men who have
been more fortunate than they in getting
into tho money-making business of clipping
coupons and pocketing bank dividends. Mr.
Metculf, if ho hud surplus dollars, would
not hesitate to put them into government
bonds or national bank stocks, if ho could
increase his wealth by doing so. He would,
if ho wero one of them, undoubtedly also
light for all the rights a bondholder or na
tional banker could honestly claim, and he
would not hesitate to very promptly resent
the insult, if some one, not a bondlulder or
a bunker, should denounce him ns a rascal
nnd a robber ot the people. We would get
rid of our bondholders and natimiu! bankers
ns speedily as possible, but we do not there
fore believe them to be and denounce them
as public robbers.
Capt. Thomas, the Republican candidate
for Congress, is onoof the most companion
able of men, with a little dash of tlie stage
in manner and language. Of comely per
sonal appearance a large, jocund-faced,
cheerful-voiced man ho throws buck his
shoulders nnd forward his paunch and pro
ceeds along a pavement or a country road
with the measured tread of a soldier. Look
ing at him, as ho advances, tho beholder
longs for the music of "See the Conquering
Hero Comes;" and when, halting, he opens
his wise mouth upon serious (ft lestions, there
is in voice nnd manner a peculiar combina
tion of Forrest, tho actor, and Sherman, the
blathering but pert-tongued general. When
he gets down to light conversation, in which
he shines, he reminds one of a huppy com
bination, in equal parts, of a clever "walking
gentleman," a not broad low comedian
und a brigadier-general. That Cupt. Thomas
will carry all his characteristics into the
canvass wo do not doubt; and, since he pro
poses to uso the bloody shirt as his weapon
of offense, we shall expect to hear him quote
from "Julius Caisur," iu a voice deep-toned
"Heo what a runt the envious Joshua made!"
und apostrophise tho flag with Wcbsterinn
eloquence. We shall also expect him, with
the airy lightness of his playful and sarcas
tic moods, to tell "a little story" spiced by
just a little naughtiness. And so consum
mate an actor will not neglect his costume.
He will act in character; aud, that ho may
do so with becoming effect, he has, wo un
derstand, resurrected from an old bureau
drawer his soldier's uniform which he pro
poses to wear upon the stump. Since ho
wore it in tho war ho has grown up and out;
and, it may be, tho pantaloons will bo short
and the coat tight; but for all that ho can
produce the effect ho desires by enacting, iu
this costume, his favorite part of "Logan's
Boy; or the Young Soldier Who Blows His
Own Horn." Ho will bo nbly assisted,
ami if the troublesome Cuiro Thomas shall
appear upon the stage, charging "Tho Boy"
with improper money-getting, the Uuiversul
Davis will tragically request him not to
disturb the even tenor of tho piece with lit
tle complaints of that kind. During the
performance artillery will roar, musketry
will rattle, the drum will roll, supernuiner
nries will shout behind tho scenes, and blue
and red lights, burning nt the wings, will
throw upon the Muiro n lurid glare and make
Logan, Thomas, the Universal Davis, the
Triumphant Joshua and the other actors, a
vivid tableau. And ut lust, to slow music,
the curtain will full upon the agonies of Lo
gan and his Hig Boy and tho rejoicings of
the great Josh ami his cheering friends.
The Democrats of this Congressional dis
trict will make nothing for their party by
disparaging the Nationals uud making
FRIDAY MORNING, JULY
joke of their efforts to secure thovotesoftho
people, Whatever wo may sny of some of
their ideas, we should huvo ears to hear,
uid by listening wo might learn that every
day tho new party is winning into its mem
bcrship voters who at once begin, not always
intelligently, but ever with great zeal, per
wstuncy and loudness of voice, to talk in nd.
vocacy of the now political faith; wc should
have eyes to see, and by looking wo might
discover that, not only talking voters but
silent and earnest men are, not precisely
(locking into tho new party, but going into
it iu largo numbers. Whether this uccre
tion of strength to tho National party is
more from tho Republican or tho Demo.
cratic party, wo do not yet know. Wc aro
inclined to believe it is from tho Republi
can nnd will injure Capt. Thomas more
than Judgo Allen; but of tho fact
that too mnny Democrats nro wandering
away from their old political home
into the National household wc have
becomo convinced. But we are not sur
prised. It is a fact, that in neither the
Democratic nor Republican party is there
much of tho old-time enthusiasm. Both ure
apathetic; both almost asleep. The Nation
als aro not on their part either asleep or in
action. They are moving with nil the ac
ti'ity of youth, and if sometimes with its
foolish impulsiveness always with the carn
ertness of men who believe what they think
tliey understand. Each member of the
pirty is a committee to get National rcud
itg matter into the humls of the voters; and
cen the most ignorant among the members
oTtho party speedily becomes, if in the city,
a corner-grocery declaimer; and, if in the
country, a cross-road orator. This kind of
energy has made even Mormonism a power
ful religion has never failed to make
rtrong even palpable errors. How much
more then is it likely to build up
nnd give strength to a party advocating u
a monetary policy that is fur from what
some persons term it, a lunacy; that is, in
fact, a growing doctrine, wise in generality
uud capable of lieing perfected in detail,
and that will, inevitably, notwithstanding its
perversion by many of the men, substan
tially lunatics, who advocate it, become law
and finally grow into nniversiully recognized
fact. If tho Democrats hope to hold their
own against the earnestness of the Nationals
who ure organizing their party in ever)1
school district, the Democrats must mani
fest enrnestness on their part und resort to
the ink-keg of the printer for intelligence
to be distributed nmong the people, nnd to
club organizations that will bring the men
who believe in Democratic principles to
gether in harmony and make them woik as
one man for success at the polls. That this
will bo d ine wo do not know. The Demo
crats in this part of the political vineyard
have become luzy, und seem inclined to
"Let us alone. What pleasure cn wo have
To war with evil ? Is there any peace
In cvercllmlilti)! P the clIinMnL' wave?
All thluKs have rest, and ripen toward the grave
in silence; ripen, full and cease."
The necessity of the time is, if we compre-
lend the situation, a long awakening pole
with which the Democrats of the Eighteenth
district may be stirred into new life and ac
tivity. We have no doubt Judge Allen
has such a pole, and will soon put it to good

TRANSPORT ON TIIE MISSISSIPPI
AND ITS IMPROVEMENT.
From the Anglo-American Times of London.
One of tho great schemes connected with
the freight business of the United States will
presently bo placed before the British public
by Mr. Charles P. Chouteau, now on his
way from St. Louis, where he is a leading
citizen. For some time Mr. Chouteau has
been preparing for his mission, and he conies
with a repository of facts connected with the
productions and trade of tho Mississippi
valley, and of thu facilities offered by its
vast wuter courses. These he litis arranged
nnd condensed in nn illustrated pamphlet.
His first point is that the means now em
ployed are obsolete, being both costly and
inadequate. All nre aware that the river
system of the Mississippi valley is an inex
haustible power of communication suppped
by nature, only awaiting utilization ns the
scienco of the duy dictates. Everything is
rendy but the capital; to obtain which is tho
object Mr. Chouteau has in view.
Everything that can suggest itself to tho
mind in Europe, Bcems to have passed un
der the notice of Mr. Chouteau in St.
Louis. He has to show to the denizens of
o city who have but nn imperfect idea of
the magnitude of tho river system of tho
Mississippi, what it means, whiit aro the ca
pacities for grain-growing of tho country
drained by these water courses, what the
means now employed to utilize the rivers
afford, and thus establish the gain to be de
rived from the improvements he suggests.
He has photographs of a coal towhoal "with
23 barges; and a grain towbont with three
barges taken while under way, which
group the facts, so nsto bring thein at once
under the eve the character of the present
boats nnd barges, and the tiuvijtlou, An
other subject is, the places of construction.
There nn; points along the river suited in
no ordinary ivay to bout building; plnces
in the neighborhood of coal und
iron submitting ull tho figures re.
quired- -the price of labor, etc. If Mr.
Chouteau succeeds, the undertaking will bo
of the utmost importnnco to the valley of
the Mississippi; indeed, tho work upon)
which lie is engaged must bo carried out
sooner or hitter by homo or foreign capital,
Our own impression is thut when tho full
scope of what is designed is understood,
somo alarm may be cuused to the railway
proprietors of tho grand trunk Western
roads; for tho Mississppi willuiruin becomo
the main highway of commerce of the far
West; However, it lias been found that tho
opening of facilities for heavy trafllc litis
benefitted existing roads in the end. Euro
pean emigration, retarded for somo years,
is again overflowing to the states.
People say, why should labor go to a coua
try where it is now ut a discount? but tho
agriculturist is in search of a land a
hemisphere ot his own where he can
abundantly supply the few wants of his
family ; und the most of thut settlement will
bo ulong tho water-courses which offer
cheap facilities for the disposal of tho pro
duce. Indian corn which cannot now bear
the cost of carriage can thus be grown ut a
profit and a must useful meal bo offered in
an increasing abundance iu the markets of
fcurope where it luruishes the best food for
Mr. Chouteau will be associated in the
mission with Mr. George H. Rea, president
of the Mississippi Valley Transportation
company, and as Mr. Chouteau represents
one of the most wealthy corporations in the
West, capital specially devoted to that
business, will in their persons show its con
fidence in an enterprise in which aid only
is wanted. It may lie observed that the
scheme fully elaborates what ourcorrespond
ent at St. Louis has long urged. In our
leading columns the subject has been again
and again noticed us an enterprise not only
promising a handsome return to investment,
but calculated to produce results of u far
reaching character; indeed, none can guess
how fur; for in an abundant success, duell
ing up the thousands and thousands of
miles of branch rivers, the price of grain
may ue so attccteu as to throw grain tulti
vtition in Great Britain out of the com no.
tition. Already the English farmer is too
heavily weighted, und the day upproaches
wnen tne rents ot tlie landlord will fall ma
terially, though the fall has alreudv been
considerable. Ten years back it was sup
posed no investment whs ho secure us land
in (treat Britain. Ten vcars hence the
purchasers at the inflated prices may huve
cause to rue their investments; but great
changes cannot be permanently checked
because tiny affect great interests, und the
prudent who foresee these ehunires endeHV
or to profit by them, or at least to avoid the
loss ignorance might entail.
A telegram from Col. C'urlin.duted Stand
ing Rock, explains the case of Indian Agent
Hughes as follows: "Agent Hughes hav
ing uroKen several cliu ts, ordered them to
be enrolled under other chiefs, which thev
have refused to do. He stopped their sup
plies. Suffering from hunger they visited
the agency, seized the agent and carried
him to n point near the river bank. I res-
cued the ngent und arrested the Indians,
who ure all under guurd. If Agent Hughes
bo not removed at once I will not be re
sponsible for the consequences. All prin
cipal and head men participated in this
afl'air. The object was to put the agent
over the river and off the reservation, not to
nun mm, nor oni tuey nurt mm.
