The Courier Journal says our 'Shoo"
Ply is "blowing up sinners in Western

enjoyed the rare felicity of listening to his
personal reminiscences. To sin after hear
ing the exploits of this holy nmn, as related

One of the best signs of Democratic suc
cess in this district is to be found in the re
ception of the attempts made by IJndicals to
wave the bloody nhirt. It his l'alleu like a
wet blanket where it was fondly hoped it
would enthuse. Dead issues have, by the
c mmou consent of sensible men, been re
legat.'d to the past. They will cut o figure
in determining the politieul complexion of
the Forty-sixth Congress.
A Bio s.raw : Judge Alien was followed
in his recent address at Vienna by Mr. Fish
er, the prosecuting attorney of John-,,,,
county. This gentleman has heretofore
been a Hepublican of the most pronounced
character, but he took occasion then and
there to sever his connection with u party
that has become intolerable to him. )th.
cr gentlemen, so we are informed, followed
Ids example. The only feature about these
conversions that is at all surprising i tw
fact that good men, above the average in
intelligence, hesitate at all to break alliance
with a party that lias degenerated into a
body of spoils hunters. The seeds of dis-
solution sown by it when ut the height of
its power extravagance, corruption, disre
gard of law are doing their work slowly
but none the less surely. ,- Patriotic, men
everywhere will rejoice at the final exit of
such a party from the stage of American
Gov, Bishop, of Ohio, in alluding to the
cauws which led to the suspension of the
great Cincinnati grocery house of It. M.
Bishop & Co.. shows the effect ot a general
decline of values in this particular case.

case is applicable to thousands of others
throughout the country, and gives an ua

Mr. Davis' effort at the Court-house
Monday night fell flat. A man who is ig
norant of the commonest political ev.-nts
transpiring alsiut him, and who shows him
self incapable of possessing a clear idea of
the matters he prates of, is a very proper
person to go gadding around among his
neighbors, telling them how to get some
thing for nothing. DeunxTats, with Na
tional tendencies, should note the fact that
those who assume to lead the Greenback
movement in this district are men who. in
most cases, have Wn unsparing in their
abuse of Democratic measures and leaders.
Mr. Davis in any party would 1 a political
cipher, and while it is the policy of those
whose candidate he is to abuse U'th of the
great political parties with impartiality, he
has not the sense or capacity to conceal his
animus. He pretends to believe that the
Democratic party is responsible for the evils
which oppress the country, when he knows,
if he knows anything of whut he talks
alKiut. that these evils are the result of the
vicious legislation of the party with which
he trained up to a recent period. Demo
crats agitated the payment of the 5-20 bonds
in greenbacks at a time when it waslioth
patriotic and practical to do so when men
like Dans and his "stomp," asKuykendall
would say, were as ignorant of the laws that
brought the 5-20's into being as they now
are of the primary principles of finance and
commerce. The agitation that heaves
blatherskites of this class to the surface i
short lite and useless in results except so
far as it may indicate to what length men
may go and still be considered as possessed
of ordinary reason.
The Bulletin this morning cheerfully
yields space to a reproduction of the re
marks of Gen. J. C. Black, of this state, at
Danville, on Thursday last, on the occasion
of the celebration of emancipation day by
the colored people of that citv. Like all of
the General's public efforts, it is short, terse,
comprehensive and eloquent. He reviews
the sad history of that race its career and
faults in freedom, its trials and sufferings
in Ijomlage; their condition on the Ameri
can continent, the struggle that resulted in
their emancipation and the duties and re
sponsibilities attaching to their new station
in H(xdety. This picture is supplemented
by words of sound advice, given in a spirit
of sincerity and candor. But this speech is
significant in another sense. It shows that
the time has gone by when Democrats of
intelligence ami independence are to be
proscribed for their efforts to fit the black
man in his duties of citizenship. He is
now a voter, ami enjoys, or should enjoy,
every right, privilege and imnuiinty enjoyed
by his white brother before the law, and
every effort, boldly or by indirection, of
any political party to deprive him of
what he now possesses must fail and recoil
upon those who essay it. The black man
is an important factor in our political sys
tem, and must continue so, Nothing could
be more obvious, then.than that it is the dic
tate no less of wise statesmanship that sound
party policy that he should be weaned
from a party which has betrayed
his friendship and uses him only ns a
lever to be hoisted into the fat places of the
land. This cannot be accomplished by
abuse or by quietly ignoring him. He is
capable of learning, and it is the duty of
Democrats to be patient, forbearing and
magnanimous in leading him up to a full
comprehension of his duty as a citizen, and
of his actions as a man. (ten. Blank recog
nizes the truth of these facts and has the
courage to give utterance to his convictions,
in his Danville speech, ho gave the black
men good adv.ee, he added to his own repu
tatiun g nu piutor and wise counselor, nnd
rcndcmdbls party a service that will bear
good fruit iu the future.

is a yearning for any of the good things of
this earth, that yearning is for peace. But
peace in a community dreading the ap
proach of 0 scourge, and containing alive
newspaper, an enterprising health officer
and a half score of physicians, can exist only
in the hope that springs eternal in the hu
man heart. No two physicians, from the
'Druids of dd" down to Browu-Sequard and
Hobnail's Liver Pad, wereevcr known to fully
agree opon any one point of their profes
sionsave its etiquette; and the number of
souls who have been permitted to slide in
to the future before their time because of a
strict adherence to the "etiquette of the
profession" will never be fully known until
the Isxiks of the recording scribe above are
submitted to a committee of angel experts,
and their report given to a ghostly and in
digmyt convention of massacred saints.
Socially, the doctor is a clever
animal so long as you may agree
with him. Cross him, and he is ns
venomous as a rattlesnake. Say there is
yellow fever where he thinks it lias not been
and your doom is sealed. Say so upon the
authority of another physician and that oth
er disciple of Galen is excoriated witli choice
oaths, and you are withered with contempt.
Hepeat this to the excoriated doctor, and he
tells you No. 1 is an ass, and implies that
you are no better for believing him. Any
candid person, w ho is not a doctor, will ad
mit that this kind of thing creates doubt
doubt even in the mind of a newspaper re
parter, as to jut what to say. Ho is
placed in the position of the fellow
who was compelled to choose K t ween two
evils he is damned if he does and damned
if he don't. What to do under sin h cir
custances puzzles him, and after several
nights spent in contemplation of the subject
and in earnest prayer, we have resolved to:
(l.l D n the doctors; (2l publish every
thing you hear; (')) publish nothing you
hear; (4) God bless the dear old doctors:
lie alniut it and conceal the facts: Mi j
tell the truth openly it is the wisest and
best thing that can be done: i7) say nothing
alior.t it it injures business. you know: and
having thus marked out a line of policy.
The Bulletin reporters have received in
structions to pursue it, or bravely perish in
A dispatch received in tin city yester
day morning conveys the gratifying intelli
gence that Dr. Horace Wardner has been
appointed by the trustees of the Anna In
sane A-ylum, superintendent of that impor
tant public charity. The action of the
trustees in making this selection will meet
with the unqualified approval of all persons
enjoying a personal acquaintance with Dr.
Wardner and competent to judge of the
qualifications indipenahlc to a successful
administration of the affairs of the reson-i-ble
post he has been Called lljxnj to fill.
Now that he has been apiiointed. and there
can be no possible injury worked to the
claims of the other gentlemen who aspired
to the position, it i jut and proper that
mention should be mad" of some of the
qualifications w hich induced the trustees to
select him. His standing ainonif his pro
fessional brethren is high and secure, and
he enjoys, profes.ionaily and socially, their
confidence and esteem. He is not new to
the genera! duties of the place. During tie
war he was placed in charge of the gen
eral military hospital at Mound City
and discharged his task with great
credit to hiuiseif, earning a reputation for
fine administrative ability and maintaining
untarnished his reputation for integrity.
In the management of his own affairs he
has been successful and has acquired means
sufficient to give him a competence and in
dependence. In another sense the appoint
ment has been peculiarly fortunate. .Mrs.
Wardner is a lady in the prime
of womanhood, broad and hu
mane in her views and benevolent in
her actions, with no inconsiderable experi
ence in the working of public charities.
She will prove tin invaluable acquisition to
the management of the asylum, and we
confidently expect the institution at Anna
under their joint supervision to rank
among the first of its kind on the conti
nent. With the selfishness common to
mortals, we are sorry that Cairo must lose
such people, but find Comfort in the reflec
tion that they leave us for an enlargement
of those duties which have for their object
the most merciful of human aims--the re
lief and care of the helpless and suffering.
When The 111 i.i.ltin a few days ago ex
pressed the hope that the pending canvass
might be conducted on the plane of imper
sonal politics it said what it sincerely felt
and desired. Nothing could a fibril lis more
pleasure than to glide through the contest
constantly reit 'fating our esteem personally
for the gentlemen who are on the other side,
and expressing the pain we would be forced
t experience in differing with them on
some questions of public policy. Such a
to irse would be in full harmony with the
views Tint Bulletin has always expressed
Upon the methods to be adopted of appeal
ing to the people for their decisions upon
measures submitted to theni, To say:
"Emotions of sadness and regret agitate us,
this morning, upon being compelled, after
what we are satisfied is a full and impartial
investigation of the subject, to difi'er front the
conclusion arrived at by our highly
esteemed and enterprising contem
porary, the Sun;" or, l,it seems to
us, that Capt. Thomas, the distinguished
soldier and statesman, in discussing the
propriety of withdrawing the nickel from
circulation, expressed opinions from which
we are reluctantly forced to dissent, and
that a fuller knowledge would probably
prompt him to revise, etc." to be able, we
repeat, to go through the contest in this
manner would be doubly gratifying to us.
It would be in keeping with the character
for candor and fairness which The Bul
letin everywhere enjoys, and in accord
with that sympathetic nature which suffers
a pang even when error writhes in pain and
discounts truth by seeking seclusion and
rest in a place popularly supposed to be
deeper than the bottom of a well, and a
ilcgrec or two hotter. But all the symptoms
indicate that we are to have the reverse of
this. We expect to hear ljing Hadical
editors charge, and unscrupulous Badical
politicians repeat, falsehood after falsehood
abmt Democrats who are above reproach
and as stainless as the imperfections of our
weak nature will allowt They will fling
ttieir filth with great industry and of course
indiscriminately. Thev have commenced
their dirty work already. But The Bul
letin can hardly be moved to deviate from
the path it has marked out for itself by the
hurling of such missiles. It may have to
dodge (ccasioiially to miss their stink pots
of aliise, but the instant resumption of our
pcqmuiiculur can be relied on indeed, it
wouU be safe to bet on it. No; we decline
to participate in a jiersou.il canvass.
