Senatok Ooi.esiiy had his youngest child
baptised by Bishop Seymour at Lincoln,
and the young man has been manifesting
fymptoms of Democracy ever sinco. They
sy the child is a boy and the bishop a Dem
ocrat. The last flyiug machine invented is said
4o bo a successful one. It can be directed
in the air as a vessel can in the water. Be
fore Judge Allen gets through with Capt.
Thomas in this canvass, the captain will be
anxious to get one of these machines so that
ie may fly away and he at rest. But there
is no rest for Thomas. Allen says so.
Mr. Jenkins, a very devout Republican
member of the African Methodist Church
ofthis city, has cast his political tent with
Iboec of the Greenback Comingitcs, and
will, we understand, give his influence,
prayers and vote to Mr. Davis, tho Na.
tional candidato for Congress. Thus one
ly one the Thomas roses drop.
The sooner Judge Allen gets upon the
tump the better. The Nationals are steal

ppeoch in every county f tho district to

of the uutiou's life, did his best both in Con

This is gratuitous abuse. There is no truth
in the charge made against Judge Allen by
Ware, and we demand the proof. This
habit of loiiling in the generalities of
abuse will not be tolerated by the Demo
crats in this campaign, and Ware must
specify tic acta by which Judge Allen, in
congress and at home, did his best or worst
to take away the nation's life, or he must
tand convicted of both meanness tiud

In 1800 the Democrats of the old Cairo
Congressional District nominated Judge
Allen for Congress, and supported him
with great enthusiasm. His competitor
was Gen. Raum. Judge Allen was
defeated, it is true, but he mode
a splendid canvass in the face
of the bitter prejudices that
had been created by the war, and in his de
bates with the Republican candidate refut
ed, in the most conclusive manner, all the
false charges that lying Radicalism had in
vented to injure him. The Sun is always
stupid and ignorant.
The Sangamo Monitor has been readout
of the National-Greenback party. The
Monitor, published at Springfield in this
StJtte, has been the accepted newspaper or
gan of the Nationals of Illinois. Mr. Kidd,
its editor and proprietor, was nominated
for Supreme Clerk, and for a time the Mon
itor praised the new party and the new par
ty rejoiced in its able champion. But with
out notice to the public the Monitor and
the Nationals fell out, and now they stand
'Like cllfft which had heen rent arondor;
A dreary ea now (lows between.
Mr. Kidd has withdrawn his name from
the ticket and the Monitor has dropped the
State ticket from its columns. Retaliating,
a number of Nationals have withdrawn
their patronage from Mr. Kidd and have de
nounced the Monitor like a bondholder.
As it stands the tight is a beautiful one.
Mr. D. T. Li.neoak, in a short speech,
nominated Mr. Thomas W. Halliday, the
choice of the Democracy of Alexander coun
ty, for the lower house of the General
Assembly. Tins Linegar did in the Demo
cratic Senatorial District Convention held at
Joneslniro, on the 213rd inst., and he did it
well. He made Halliday, who is proverbi
ally modest and bashful, blush at the
praises he gave him, but he told nothing
outside of the truth, nnd The Bcli.etix
knows, nnd "so do we all of us," that Halli
day will, when he shall have become a mem
ber of the legislature, redeem every promise
made in his name. He will be one of the
most useful members of the house;
and, if he succeeds in impressing his ideas
of state revenue upon a majority of each
house, his membership will become a bless
ing to every tax-payer in Illinois.
The law of Virginia makes it a criminal
offense to send, receive or carry a challenge.
Mr. Hunton of Virginia, sent a challenge to
Mr. Alexander of Washington. Somebody
thereupon declared, seemingly without fear
of contradiction, that Mr. Burke, Common
wealth's Attorney of the county in which
Mr. Hunton resides, would, as in duty
bound, proceed against tho challenger.
And now comes Mr. Burke saying he
has no intention of commencing a criminal
action against Mr. Hunton. Commenting
upon this saying of Burke, a special corres
pondent of tho Chicago Evening Journal
says: "It is difficult to see how Mr. Burke
can reconcile this with Ins sworn oath to
uphold tho law and prosecute those who vi
olato it." Tho correspondent is mistaken
In ono matter. Mr. Burke lias no sworn
oath. When lie took office he did not take
a sworn oath, but ono of the other kind.
He is therefore at liberty to not have (as he
says ho has not) anything to do with the
Wk like Capt. Thomas. He is o genial
and paunchy so exceedingly clever. We
arc therefore desirous that nothing worse
than defeat shall overtake him in his con
test with Judgo Allen. And consequently
wo have advised and do now advise his
friends to not permit him to challenge Judge
Allen to debate with him on tho stump. To
do so would result In his annihilation. Al
len would leave nothing of him. In a mo
ment of rashness, Capt. Thomas, while milk
ing a upeech at Murphysboro, after Ids no
mination for Congress by tho Carboudale
convention, promid his Republican
friends that he would, if Judge Allen
should 1 nominated by tho Demo
crat, challenge him to a series of Joint
discussions of the issues of the day, But
ho will not do this. On Bccom sober
thought, he will bo careful to n t send
such a challenge to Judgo Alle i, who
would, we assure tho captain, bo Ial to
accept it. Ctipt. Thomas is ''not n intel
lectual coward, but is timid when there is
danger of coming into intellectual jcontact
with n Democrat like Judge Allen. 'He will
therefore not stand by his Murpjysboro
braggadocio. He will run away.
Tim mun who l run and ritnn away
Uuy live to briiK another day.
Tub Thomas-Tliomn collection mis
understanding seenm t' have givt. much
trouble to our Republican friends fr whom
we feel profound respect. We would not
harrow up their sensitive emotions, nml we
are therefore inclined to treat with jhem for
peace.' We are disposed to let all rWsonal
matters go by, and run the canvasi on the
plane of impersonal politics. "Thomas is,"
for instance, "a gentleman of irreproachable
character; but, being the representative of
the Republican party, we shall be compelled
to," etc. In return we shall expect
something like this: "Judge Allen is ah old
and highly respected citixen of Illinoi;but,
being the Democratic standard-iiearer in
this district, we sh.ill do nil that in us lies
to defeat him at the polls," etc. This will
be pleasant almost delightful; and it will
be just to our taste. We shall therefore
get ready for an affectionate canvass to y
opened ami closed by a friendly embrace
of each other by the candidates.
A special telegram to the Chirago Times
lrom Boston dated July 23nd, contains the
astounding information that Mr. John S.
Tappan, of the Boston Belting Company,
resigned a few weeks ogo, and his successor,
Mr. E. S. Converse, upon making an inves
tigation, found an unexpected pecuniary
condition of affairs, and at once notified the
creditors. A meeting was held, and
Messrs. G. P. Melledge, President Hunt, of
the Atlas bank, and G. A. Alden were
appointed-a committee to make a thorough
investigation. The stockholders met and
were informed of the situation, and the
company thereupon suspended payment.
Mr. Tappan has been raising money on the
paper of the Bjton Belting company, Mc
Killop, Sprague & Co., and the Merriam
Packing company, of Texas, with his own
indorsement. It is said that in the last
named company Mr. Tappan has become
largely involved. The apparent di scrcpancy
is if'527.000. The company's liabilities are
S30,000 and nominal assets !0.OO0. The
capital stock is f")00,000, of which Mr. Tap
pan holds $200,000. The stock last sold at
$123. As Mr. Tappan had had entire
chargo of the finances of the corporation, and
his integrity was unquestioned, there was
no suspicion of any irregularity unti'. the
new president made the investigation which
resulted in this sad development.
The Sparta Plaindealer is "glad rf if.
because Thomas will beat him as certain
as lie runs." So are we "glad of it," because
Allen will beat Thomas out of sight, and
leave Davis, the Reformed Greenbacker,
two thousand votes in the rear. The truth
is, we have every reason to believe the nee
will be between Allen and Davis. The indi
cations are that Thomas will nut cany u
county in the district. Republicans, anxious
to defeat Allen, nre joining the Greenback
clubs in large numbers, and there is now
every prospect of a Greenback revolt ai long
the colored Republicana. Mr. Glhdncy, a
colored leader of Cairo of almost As much
influence as Judge Bird, has ulreidy gone
over from Thomas to Davis, takiig quite
a number of colored Republicans with him,
and Mr. Scott, the colored ward manipulator
a man who has more influence thar. any
other Republican in Southern Illinou at
the polls is also seriously meditating
a revolt against the Radical tyrai.ny
that uses the negroes and rewards them with
tho stale assertion that the Republicans
liberated them from slavery. Mr. Scott
has not probably sulfieicut moral courage
to come over into the Democratic party
but we shall not be surprised to soon sec
him, with Mayor Winter, Capt. Comings,
and Mr. Roberts in the van of theGreenback-
ers, cheered on to anticipated victory by Mr.
Mctcalf the old-time friend of his race.
These facts are significant, and they give
to us the assurance that we shall not fail in
the election of Judge Allen and shall suc
ceed during the canvass in completely
breaking down the Republican party of the
district. Like the Sinirtu Plaindealer we
aie "glad of it," and we know that our
satisfaction shall increase in degree the
closer wo upproach election-day.
Mb. J. B. Stelle, tho Reformed Green
backer, is denouncing Josh. Allen as a liar
but Mr. Stelle, in tho use of this language
evidently permits his tewpef to abuse his
sense of fairness and induces him to slander
a good man. Mr. Stello declare! Mr. Allen
lied to tho people when he told them, dur
ing the war of secession, that it was an un
Just war on the part of the North; but Mr
Stelle docs what he says Mr. Allen did
when ho charges that Mr. Allen thus char
acterized the war. Mr. Allen, during the
struggle for the Union, told the people that
the great struggle in which they were en
gaged would bo and was being used by tho
leaders of the Republican party, or rather
by tho money dealers who controlled those
Wlcrs, for the purpose of aggrandizing
themselves at the cxpenso of tho farms and
shops of the Republic. His warnings were
disregarded. He was put down by tho as
sertion that his objections were made in the
interest of the rebels. But now the fact that
his objections were those of a sagacious nnd
patriotic man is beginning to become tip
pareni to every fair-minded citizen who
knows him. He said, when tho green
backs were being issued: "You are mak
ing two kinds of money one for the bond
holder and another for tho people." To
this warning the Republicans replied with
the charge of treason. When the national
banks were being established, he said:
"This is a dangerous measure. Jackson
feared the power of one greut nionied insti
tution. How much more dangerous then
will a thousand or two of such institutions
be! Once fasten them upon the country
and they will be the masters of the people."
To this and similar warnings men like Mr.
Stelle, who were then ns funatical in their
devotion to the Republican party ns they
now are to their idea of absolute money,
also replied witli the cry of treason. The
truth is Mr. Allen has been wiser in his day
and generation than the Stelles who now
denounce him. And this will be the judg
ment expressed by the people of this district
at the polls this full.

THE FRAUD INVESTIGATION.
MEETING OF THE I'OTTEU COMMITTEE AT AT
Atlantic City, N. J., July 23. Messrs.
Potter and Springer of the investigation
committee arrived here at eleven this morn-
in'', accompanied by their clerk and ser-
gi ant-at-arms. Tho papers and Uioks of
the committee were late in reaching Here,
but work was begun this afternoon in the
parlor of the United States hotel. Messrs.
Potter and Springer, Democrats, and His
cock and Butler, Republicans, of the
committee, were present. The witnesses
present were Hon. Lyman Trumbull, oi Illi
nois, who arrived here to-day; Hon. Win. D.
kellcy, ot Pennsylvania, and lion. Lorenzo
Danford, of Ohio. Mr. Sherman was not
present, but was represented by Mr. Shella-
barger. The representatives of various
leading journals und a uumber of specta
tors were in attendance. Anderson s coun
sel, Mr. J. W. Sypher, was present to look
alter Ins interests.
The idea of calling Mr. Sherman first had
been partly contemplated oy ins menus
The Democrats were quite willing to leave
the question to his opinion, but It was deci
ded by tho Republican managers to-day to
put Mr. Dantord first on the stand.
Mil. DANKOltD'S TESTIMONY.
Mr. Danford has been a member from
Ohio for three terms, and, it seems, went
down in December, 1 b 70, to Iiuisiana, as u
member ot the Morrison committee. Ho
there hud n talk with Anderson and testifies
that Anderson informed him of the bull
dozing in his parish, and also that ho had
been circulatim; a story that lie bad come
to New Orleans hikI told Kclloinr that his
parish was going Democratic, the object
beinif to induce the Democrats to oiler mm
money to go back, in which event he would
have them in Ins power nnd would expose
them. Mr. Danford had thereupon drawn
the Inference that Anderson was an uneer
tain character as a witness nnd not to be
trusted, so that he had advised Ids friends
hiriiinst summoning him as a witness. It
auncars. however, that Mr. Danford knew
perfectly well that it was upon Anderson's
protest that tho voto of East Feliciana had
con thrown out, thus liriidy helniiiL' to
leeidu tho presidential election, and that ho
had not told the Howo committee of An
derson's character or the Morrison c.iiiiinit
too to which ho belonged, Mr. Danford
will probably be asked to-morrow to tell
why ho kept this knowledge of Anderson's
unreliability a secret till now,
Mr. Eugi'iiu Hale, a visiting Matesmiin,
has arrived, and Hon. J. Palmer of Illinois,
who accompanied Mr. Trumbull to Louis
iana, is expected to-morrow. The other
witnesses called nre Cortland Parker, (Sen.
G.irlield, Wm. Prank Morey and hoiiio
others. Tho Republican visiting statesmen
are expected to swear that they were with
Air. Mierman at New Orleans and knew no
thing of the Sherman letter. They are call
ed by Mr. Sherman's request. Messrs,
Trumbull and Palmer of Illinois anil Geo.
H. Smith of Wisconsin are culled on the
Democratic side in order if necessary to cor
rect any erroneous statements of fact touch
ing the presidential election in Louisiana
which Messrs. Sherman, Garfield und and
Hale may make.
ON THE Sqt!AKK.
This session has been held at tho special
instance of Mr. Sliermnu, the purimseof the
Democrats being to leave him no cause of
complaint. It turns out now that not u
single request of the Republicans has beeu
ret used them since the committee organiz-
I in asliington, I her were consulted
as to who should represent their party on
the committee, whether counsel slioufd bo
allowed, whether tho sessions should bc
open or secret, and now th ;ir demand to
summon a lot of "intimidation" witnesses
has been granted at New Orleans and they
are afraid to call them.
WHAT KX-OOV. I'AI.MKIl KNOWS,
Ex-Gov. Palmer left to-night for the
East in obedience to a summons to testify
before the Potter committee. He was one
of the Democratic visitors to New Orleans
and he can, it is understood, testify that

offered to sell out a vote for Tilden in the
electoral college for a certain sum and that
the offer was refused by the friends of
