Bkaco.nsfieid was siucastic at the ban
quet given him by the Carletnn Club in
Xondon on Saturday lust. Referring to the
assertion of Gladstone that the Turkish con
vention was an insane convention he said
Gladstone was "a sophistical rhetorician,
inebriated with the exuberance of his own
TerboBity and egotistical imagination."
"Altooetiieh," says Senator Beck, of
'Kentucky, "the congressional prospect for
the lower house is fimt-cluss, while after the
fourth of March the senate will bo Demo
cratic by ten majority, and perhaps by elevent
Jor I am in favor of unseating Kellogg and
giving the seat to the rightful owner, Spof-
Jbrd. KullogK holds the seat by virtue of
election by a legislature tlmt never was a le
gal body, and his commission is signed by a
man who was never governor of Louisiana,
find is now consul to Liverpool."
fcENATou Bi'K.nside is over in West Vir
ginia at one of the delightful summer re
ports of that unconstitutional state, figuring
away at army reorganization. If he and
those who sympathize with him wished to
reduce the army, what a proper man he
-would be for a leader. How whole brigades
-would melt out of sight, and the army be
omo a "skeleton" army in a sense not
thought of by those who now call it so.
But happily Burnside can harm the gallant
Iwly now only by adding to the confusion
that exists within it. Ho can not hurt it as
of old against other troops, inipregnably
entrenched and just as brave.
The large party of Republicans who
tame in from Vienna yesterday to witness
the eclipse, imagining that imkrtant event
to la) in some way connected with one of
-those "grand aggregations of living won
' dcrs" that periodically visit us, proves the
truth of what we have said alout the be
uightcd condition ot that party in Johnson
County. It is such acta as this that render
Democratic ascendency there a necessity.
Under Democratic rule they would have
more and letter schools, a diffusion of in
tdligence would follow, mid the people of
the county would be spared the mortifica
tion of knowing that a body of people, rep
senting its political majority, were not ca
flsbje of distinguishing between an eclipse

Ma. James Oouoe.n Bennett's proposed
Arctic expeditions will apiiroach the North
Tole from opixisite quarters, the Jeannette
going to the Arctic Ocean by way of Belt
ring". Strait, and the Dauntless by the Spitz-
bcrgen route, which is the one most in favor
with the German and me other European
expbrers. What may be called the Ameri
can route is along the west coast of Green
land, th. oigli Davis' Strait, Baffin' Bay and
Smith's Sound to the almost unknown re
Kion formerly described ns the "open Polar
sea." The expeditions will hi very expen
sive to their projector, and Mr. Bennett ask
the navy department to furnish the ollieers,
crow and provisions for the Dauntless.
This vessel is a celebrated racing yacht of
alwut two hundred and fifty tons burthen,
and is to bo refitted for the voyage.
We sincerely regret the disappointment
and grief felt by our Vienna Hcpubliean
friends ut the failure of our eclipse. We
had every thing arranged for the show yes
terday, but the inexcusable conduct of the
sun we had engaged for the occasion in en
tering into conspiracy with vagrant clouds,
seriously interfered with the success of the
entertainment. Already negotiations have
been entered into with a sun which has been
recommended for sobriety and punctuality,
which will positively appear as advertised.
When the arrangements arc completed the
Republicans of Johnson county will le duly
informed of the fact, that they may have
ample time to prepare themselves for the
show. We are determined that in future
they shall have no cause for just complaint-
The fifteenth plank of the platform
adopted by the Democracy of this State
at their last convention is ns follows;
Wages of employes of corporation engaged In
mining, manufacturing, and transportation ehould
be made a first lien upon the property, receipts and
earnings of cald corporation!, and culd lien hould
be declared, defined and enforced by appropriate
This proposes a practical remedy for one
the real hardships which oppress the work
ing clases tif the country. It goes as
far as legislation can go toward securing
wages of the working man against loss.
Under Biich legislation the hundreds of
thousands of laborers who have been re
duced to a condition almost of beggary
by the failure of corporations would have
had relic. In the adjustment of thet affairs
of bankrupt concerns wages would lie a
first hen, and the workingman would de
rive all the advantages of a preferred credit
tors. Such a law would alsocompel receivers
of the property of corporations in litigation
mainly railro ids to pay the wages of its
employes out of its receipts before discharg
ing any, of its other indebtedness. This
would work a practical remedy of a great
recognized wrong. And the exactment of
such a law would result iu real and imme
diate good to the sufferers. It would be
of more benefit to the working classes than
any of the thousand and one cure-alls which
find lodgment in the brain of latter-day
Massac county, it is well-known, is rock-
rooted in its Radicalism and consequently
impervious to a ray of intelligence. At
Metropolis, the home of ('apt. Thomas, a
delegation of Republicans on Sunday last
boarded the steamer Fisk, and endeavored
to obtain special rates to Cairo, that they
might have an opportunity, as they said,
of coming here to see what "sort of a show
an eclipse was." They were amazed and
delighted with the explanation which the
officers of the boat kindly gave to them,
and we expect to hear that the few houses
in that county which possess the luxury of
a window were raided and robbed of
their glass panes to furnish the bew ildered
community materials with which to seo the
"show." It is such actions as this, invaria
ble originating in Radical strongholds, that
have made the name of Egypt svnonvmous
with political darkness, and we suppose
will have to be borne with until theincreaseof
Democracy and public schools lift the veil
of ignorance and instil into the most obfus
cated Republican intellect a little of that
knowledge which elevates man above the
level of a brute.
Tiiekb is one feature of the affair across
the river which we have up to this time re
frained from publishing. It is said the
whole matter had its origin in the fact that a
colored man was living with a white woman,
and that this beside being unlawful was very
obnoxious to the moral sentiment of the men
who undertook to break it up. So hazard
ous a task of course could not be accom
plished without the aid of whisky as a
stimulant, and after the chivalrous bloods
had succeeded in running the inisccgenator
to the river and outraging the person of his
wife, who is now lying sick in this city, they
in the vicinity and ordered them to "leave the
bank" by a certain time, assuring them
at a failure to do so would result in hnvlnir
their necks stretched. Tl Wtun i'irf a urn
13 (11 v
known nt Bhindville, and the parties com
posing the gang are known there, as their
names aud the names of witnesses
have been supplied f) the authorities.
Since an attempt has been made to ignore
the crime itself, or treat it as of little con
sequence and shift the bhumi to this com
munity, the whole facts might as well be
made known. If the negro's act in living
with the white woman was unlawful it fur
nished no shadow of excuse for the unlawful
proceedings that followed the attempt to
suppress it by Compery aud his companions.
The Springfield Register of Saturday
It t reported from the ISth dlnlrlot that the man
Ttunna whom Joh Alleu'a friend peruaded the
Itc publican to uomluaie for Congre I of U Importance-
than the poor ftvaiuro lieu L. Wiley,
whom the HepuMUaim ran two year ago. Hut thi
can't poudbly be true.
That depends altogether upon the stand
point from which the matter is viewed. Ren.
Wiley, whom the Republicans ran two years
ago, presents two well-defined aspects to the
public gae physical Wauty and mental
accomplishments. If the Register writer
intends to convey the idea that Capt.
Thomas is of less importance intellectually
than Ben. Wiley, we decline to take issue
with him; but if h intended as well, in his
sweeping assertion, to institute a comparison
of the physical qualities of the two men, he
could not Ik.' wider of the mark than when
he says Capt. Thomas is of less importance
than "the poor creature Wiley." The cap
tain's best card iu the canvass will be his
shape. Against this his most unscrupulous
opponents can truthfully say nothing, and
if the Republican Central Committee were
to seal his lips and exhibit him throughout
the district Judge Allen might well fear for
the result. Besides this Thomas has a dan
gerous way of looking like and imitating
Gen. Logan. In manner and speech he is
the General's twin-brother and if it were not
a physical impossibility for the captain to
produce a copy of the General's moustache,
the personal likeness would be startling.
No; Thomas is not of less importance than
Wiley. What he lacks in brains is more
than supplied by his magnificent shape.
This is the tenth plank in the platform
of the Democracy of Illinois :
The national banknote bould be retired. nd In
Mead of them nhoiild be lnnued by the government
an equal aniouut of treasury uocta.
And yet in the face of this plain declara
tion the men who assume to lead the
Greenbaekirs in Cairo b.iwl thenselves
hoarse iu their abuse of the Democratic
party far not doing what it has been impos
sible for them to do. It has had to contend
with a Senate opposed to its measures, and
when this fact is rightly considered the
success of the Democrats in securing such
measures as have afforded some financial
relief is almost miraculous. It is trie that
some Republicans voted with the Democrats
on the bill remonetizing silver, and that a
few Democrats voted with the body of the
Republicans in resisting its passige, but
these two facts do not deprive it of its dis
tinctive feature as a Democratic Jieasure.
A public sentiment was created fr it by
Democratic ritersand speakcrMirJ trough
the existence of that sentiment it isa law of
the land to-day. These same troubles ure
conspicuous in the effort to secure the sub
stitution of treasury notes for the tsues of
National banks, and with a Democratic
house and Democratic president the idea
embodied in the platform of the Illinois
Democracy will be enacted into law.
Greenbackers will not further their cause
by misrepresenting th.' position oft'ie Dem
ocrats on this question.
The Chicago Times of the 27th reviewing
the nominations thus far made of congress
men in tnis state, has this to say of Judge
Of "Jimh" Allen It cun he aid that he I a much
abler man than Mr. Hart .ell the prevent member.
If he had not been, he probably would not have been
puggeHted by loyal print" for one of that acWt com
pany of Democrat who upent oine month nt Fort
Lafayette. He wit, and l. a Bourbon of the hardet
hell; a I'ulliotinlst of III parent dye; a llurlan of
the earliest political formation. Hut he I man of
more ability anil strength of character than auy other
man thut hu been named for congress In Illinois by
the politician of any trade. mark. It I comforting
to reltect that the Illiuol Itourbon propose to end
one man to the forty-lxth t'ongre who will not be
a disgrace to the Intellect of the commonwealth,
even If he did make a political a of himself during
the civil war.
.Judge Allen is not a Bourbon. He has
had his existence for the past ten years in
an atmosphere of Progressive Democracy,
and during all that time has been a sub
scriber to Tub Bn.i.ETiN and a dilligent
reader of it. Nullification is no part of his
creed, and the charge that he is a Calhoun
istof the purest dye is without foundation.
He has kept abreast of the current of
thought in political matters, mid is hi full
sympathy and accord with the masses upon
nil vital questions. The Tim ts is right in
ascribing ability and strength of character
to Judge Allen, and the Democrats of this
district will send him to Washington as
their representative in the Forty-sixth con
gress, knowing that he will properly reprj
sent them, and "that he will not be n dis
grace to intellect of the commonwealth,."
The Ballard News, in its hist issue, in
speaking of the ku-klux affair across the
river, says thi :
Wu are now Inclined to think that mo Interested
parties In Cairo have Imposed on the llulliitln; that
they organized themselves Into two bauds one to
be Kukluxed, the other to dot ho Kiikluxing, and
that If any one wa hurl, It was the result of enact
ing the sham ton near tint lll'e; and their object In
such a farce was to lay the bluine on Keiiluckliiiis
aud so keep up the railroad shops, depots, hands,
etc., Iu Cairo. And If the C'ulroltes. who profess to
know so much about It. do not furnish our nutliorl-'
tie with some legal evidence of this crime, we shall
become 11 r tit In this opinion.
The eccentricities of Ballard county know
of the circumstances of the midnight raid
ing of the lawless rulllans; they know of the
shooting of an inoffensive colored man by
the gang, and they know of the threats of
warning issued to colored lalxirers to leave
their homes under penalty of having their
neck stretched. They know who com
posed the members of this gang, as they
also know who the witnesses are and how
easily they can be procured, It is in no
nay the business of Cairoites to furnish tho
authorities of Ballard with information con
rvniing a Crime committed within the bor
ders of their own county, and if they are
sincere in their professions of devotion to
tho law there is no obstacle in the way of
its enforcement. To attempt to evade their
plain duty by "whipping the devil nround
the stump" is only making bad worse; and
to attribute to our people a mercenary
motive in stirring up 'strife among our
ncighlxirs is not justified by a shadow of
fact. There are no antagonistic interests of
Cairo on the other side of the river, and the
insinuation is entirely prompted by an
moan spirit and a desire to shirk a plain
duty by shifting responsibility to innocent

Paiiis, July 1.1th, IHTH.-No part of the
French mechanical department presents a
finer effect than that where a number of im
mense machines, from the celebrated ('ail
manufactory, rise more than half way to
the high roof of the hull. I will
not attempt to describe these giants
of iron and steel, but only note peculiar and
picturesque effects produced by the group
ing of so ninny vast pieces of machinery.
A refrigerating apparatus attracts much ut
teiition, the whole process of artificial ice
making is before the eyes of the observer.
Large blocks of very dense clear ice are
constantly turned out. It is interesting to
observe the naif wonder of the simple coun
try people on a visit to tho Exhibition
when they witness this miracle of science;
they can scarcely believe their eyes as the
congealed masses are laid out on
slabs of cork. There are just now many
visitors from thu rural provinces of
France, who are quite as interesting as
tho exhibits they havo come to look ut.
I observed one family in particular stand
ing for a long while before the freezing
machine. They were quite a study iu
themselves; the head of the house was at
tired in a suit of a cut that might have
been fashionable fifty years ago, which the
village tailors art had made a curiosity of
wrinkles iiii creases, of looseness where it
should have been tight, and of tightness
where it should have been loose. His two
sons, one a stalwart young man, the other
an awkard, angular peasant, wore clothes
that were quite the counterpart of those of
their worthy progenitor, their semblance
leading one to believe that their local tailor
had strong conservntivo views, and hnd
trained his shears to preserve the cut that
was all the style in his youth, with h
lofty disregard for the changes of
tickle fashion, had gone on turn
ing out redlngotcs of tho stylo
of Charles IX for three generations of
peasantry. The female members of tho
parly displayed their picturesque local cos
tumea high linen cap, bedecked with gay
ribbons; a woolen dress of quaintly simple
fashion, and a pretty apron, evidently meant
for show aud not for use. Thus attired
they looked as fresh and pleasing as the
men appeared ridiculous. They were
amazed at the sight of the artificial ice,
and watched the frozen blin ks us they came
out of the machine, leaning over tho rail
ings to lay their fingers upon them, doubt
ing their eyes until an additional senso had
clinched tho argument and convinced them
that there was real ice in the middle of
What is thnt distant sign that litis just
caught our eye? "American Popcorn."
The light of it makes the mouth witter as
the "Star Spangled Banner," played by
Gillmore's band, on the 4th of July, uiado
our eyes slop over. We must pay a visit,
for the sake of "old lung syne," to the ar
ticle, which, with chewing gum, every
American remembers to have been the staple
nourishment of his school y days. How
intensely pairiotic wo become when the
Atlantic ocean is between us and home.
We denounce our institutions and public
men before wc have Iwcn abroad, but bo
come devout worshippers of almost every
thing American when we have had oppor
tunity to compare them with things on
this side. I have known Americans so
patriotic ns to take a drink in Paris for no
better reason than that the saloon, kept
most probably by an Englisman, had on it
the sign: "American Bar." The Ameri
can popcorn machine is actively turn
ing out large round balls of the compound,
and a lively sale is carried on, moht of the
M-ople who gather round I icing curious to
sample it, but pox-orn, as manufactured at
the exhibition, seems to lie more sticky and
h'hs savory than the pnM orn we used to

In this section the process of diamond
cutting maybe witnessed, and a slow labo
rious process it is. The lapidaries nt work

insjicction, you will find that thick plate
glass entirely separates them and the dia
monds from the sjicctator.
