Yiiks the doctors disagree who shall de
ride? Francis Murphy mid Kev. Dr. Mears
had it falling out at a recent temperance
lueetini:, as to the proper way of reforminrj
drunkards. Murphy said that Mears, by
violent denunciation of all liquor sellers
and drinkers, made enemies of and ren
dered them indilferent to good inllueuce.
Mei rssaid that Murphy, by refraining from
speaking vigorously of the sinful tratlic, had
done injury to the cause of total abstinence.
The State Oa.ette says Col. l!b Townes
is "a disciple of Judge Allen's, with copper
head instincts." This is about ns near the
truth as the military editor of thu (iazetto
tvergets. Col. Townes is a Democrat, and so
far a disciple of Judge Allen, lie was also
u brave and gallant soldier who has not mis
taken his country for the Republican party.
Every soldier in the district knows this to
lie a fact, and the Ga.ette knows it to be a
fact, and if it requires proof f jt) wo HU,.
Kcst that it make inquiries of On,
about the colonel's war record.
Orn Washington correspondent undci
date of the 2d,writcB : la view of the great
Buccess of our citizens who sent their wares
to the Puris ExK)sition, nnd the fact that
larger and earlier appropriation by Con
grcss would have resulted in a far more ex
tensive representation of our products, 1
think flicsc Congressmen, Democratic nnd
Republican, who persistently fought even
the tnengre appropriation made, will be
more liberal on similar occasions in the fu
ture. No ono can tell how much of our
marvellously increased exportation of Snun
ufactured articles in the last year is due to
the knowledge of their excellence which
was derived by foreigners from the. Centen
nial Exhibition, yet Congress grudgingly
loaned a little sum to the promoters of that
great affair, and drove a sharp bargain w ith
them Ju demanding its full return from
their empty pockets."
Gknl. Butler's acceptance of the Indepen
dent nomination by the people of Massa
chusetts, look at it in what light we may, is
one of the most significant events of our late
politics. His letter of acceptance is plain,
and can bo understood by all. lie judici
ously confines himself to State affairs, mak
ing a vigorous attack upon the system of
Government which supports in idleness a
numerous class of richly salaried and un
necessary officials, while to the poor it
makes taxation confiscation. Upon that
subject four-fifths of the voters tire with tile
General, nmrso ujion other but less impor
tant local matters mentioned by him.
Ges. Jack Ki ykendai.i., ( Vienna, has
burnished up his trusty old sword the
same that sweltered in so much rebel gore
during the old times and vows destruction
on the yellow plague. The Hickman scare
has in some mysterious way reached the
valiant old warrior's quiet retreat, and he
has resolved himself and his gallant fol
lowing; into a quarantine against Cairo.
We advise the general to make haste slowly.
There is no yellow fever in Cairo, or fever
of any other kind. The city was never
healthier. But if the fever should ever
cross to the Illinois shore, the pope's bull
against the comet would be quite as effect
ual in its way as the ridiculous acts of that
frightened community to stay the phgue.
The action ot Vienna and Metropolis is
simply a vexatious impediment to trade
and travel, without in any way increasing
t!ie security of tln.-ir people. If they conc
cludedto have regulations, let stieli regula
tions be temtiered with reason.
The Alton Democrat of Wednes lay last
says: "The contest in the Eighteenth
(Cairn) Congressional DNtrict is gpiwing
more animated every day. The R piibii
c.ins confine themselves t) attacks upon
Allen's record as a Democrat during the
war. They have not yet sueecccded in
proving that his votes in congress were in
fluenced by improper motives or by any
spirit of disloyalty. Alien was one of those
men who insisted upon fighting the war on
constitutional principles. His judgment
may sometimes have been tit fault, but be
cause lie opposed tbe means emp- iyel by
tne Itep.ublicans is no pi'""! i
that he was not heartiiv in I
sympathy with the end they were employed
o secure, lie was a stickler for constitu
tional precedents, even li em'i'geneies de
manded that they be -et a-ide. It was
more a fault of the head than the heart if !
ic opposed the inimitable. lathe preept j
ri-is, when men of honesty end capacity
are wanted in congress, he is a man to be j
trusted with perfect and entire cni!ideii( v. I
These facts we believe the people of the !
Eighteenth district fully appreciate ami
Fernando Wood tailed signally in his at
tempt to pass his customs bill through the
hist House, and the indications were that
:ven a modified bill would have been de
feated. He may be sure that radical chang.;
in that direction will not be possible until
the public debt becomes understandable
and manageable and commerce and industry
assume something of a solid and radical
character. But Mr. Wood is not disposed
to let the subject alone, and everybody will
will be glad that his special Committee to
inquire into the execution of existing cus
tom laws is at work in New York. All men
who import anything are constantly com
plaining on this subject. One official after
another tries to inaugurate reform, and still
the faults and the complaints continue.
Tho largest importers will appear before
Mr. Wood committee, and intelligent state
ments of gaievanees will be made. These
the clear head of Mr. Wood will reduce to
order, and u Democratic House and Senate
will embody them in the law of the land.
Mr. Wood deserves well of all who are in
terestedand who are not? in the com
merce) of the country.

The Gazette is right in saying Mr. Oberly
is a simon-pure Democrat, lie was ap
pointed railroad and warehuose commis
sioner because he was Democrat, and
whatever of Ids efforts will contribute to
the success of the Democracy in this fight
' the service of the party. But the Ga'
rA'l,c i l"ite well acqiminted with these
facts us is The Bixi.eti.n, but goes out its
way in all of its assaults upon Democrats
to attach prominent Republicans. Wo can
not imagine what Gov. Cullom has particu
larly done to offend the mattial spirit of
the doughty colonel. It is of course a part
of the programme which tho colonel has
adopted to let himself slide out of the par
ty, but these insidious attacks upon the
governor are as malicious as the recent as
saults upon Capt. Phillips and other promi
nent Republicans. The colonel should
cut the knot at once, come over to his old
love, and from tho security afforded him
by Democracy, pelt his recent associates to
his heart's content. He has played the role
of Brutus long enough, and so palpably
that his work bents no fruit. Shall we an
nounce the flop, colonel?
A correspondent of the Murphysboro In
dustrial Tribune, writing of the disgraceful
conduct ot the Thomas men at the Caglcs
villo barbecue, says: "Just ns dinner was
about over Capt. Thomas, the valiant so
jer boy, hove in sight. The discussion was
soon arranged. The gallant Thomas got
the first shot and turned his batteries loose.
The bloody shirt was furiously waved, the
rebel flag was torn in tatters, the Southern
people were mercilessly lashed, Josh Allen
was once more dragged off to prison, and
the fumes of sulphur floated on the air.
The time passed; the presiding officer, him
self a Republican, rapped the furious Cap
tain down, but he w as on the s-eent of rebels,
was firing the Northern heart, was not car
ing a continental what became of the stiff -ring
people, and, like BailqUo's gle'st. he
would not down at the. chairman's bidding.
Finally the chairman's patience became ex
hausted and he appealed to the committee
and through them to the audience, when
the Captain was rather emphati.-aily re
minded that his time was up. 0:i taking
the stand Mr. T. poastfuiiy reminded the
audience that it had been said he vouid
not be thare to meet his antagonists, but he
wished it distinctly understood that le- v.. is

shocked and bruised old Christian, slowly
raised her eyes to tho gaze of the raven
and replied : "Don't d n me; I had noth
ing to do with getting up this meeting,"
And it wassow ith every one of the committee
of fifteen yesterday interviewed on the mut

raven; the reporter the aged Christian, and
he was invariably greeted with "d n you,
don't you say I had anything to il with
that meeting," and our reporter has not.
Many years ago a little book, with the
curious title of "Shut Your Mouth," was
published by Mr. Catlin, whose portraits of
Indian chiefs used to adorn the Smithsonian
Institute at Washington. Mr. Catlin, a por
trait painter, was brought very low by
bleeding at the lungs, and as it hist resort
be went far west of the Mississippi, and
lived among the wild Indians. He notice I
their freedom from pulmonary and malarial
diseases. He noticed also that they inva
riably breathed through their nostrils, nnd
indeed rarely opened their mouths, He
learned that this was taught them from their
earliest infancy, the mother watching her
sleeping babe nnd compressing its lips ns
often ns they opened. After a long, arduous
struggle he managed to do this himself; his
lung troubles at once begun to disappear,
and he dw elt amid malarious marshes both
in North and South! America, with impuni
ty, (hi his voyage homo from tho latter
ho pointed out to a fellow passenger those
who habitually breathed through the mouth.
The yellow fever broke out on the
vessel and all those, nnd only those
who did this di'd. Now, this
story points ti moral of the first importance
and is peculiarly applicable at this time.
Wo do not know that a close mouth insures
freedom from pulmonary and malarial dis
eases, but we do know that n great deal of
good w ill result from a close observance of
the injunction, "shut your mouth." It would
be unjust to question the motives of any of
the gentlemen who have been
conspicuous in tho ''people's'' move
ment. There have been abuses under our
quarantine regulations. The Batesville
matter was clearly a neglect of duty, and is
utterly indefensible. To lay the blame on
an operator at Columbus only aggravates
the offense, nnd it would be wonderful if
citizens had not become indignant at w hat
might have proven a dreadful calamity.
But the gentlemen who are managing the
thing have made a mess of it, and besides
showing that they do not (dearly under
stand what they want or what they w ish to
d", they are, if not creating, at h ast keep
ing up an alarm, and in their own interests,
as well us in those of a talk-ridden com
munity, they should study the story we
have given, retire to their usual vocations
and "shut their mouths."

Dit. Yandei.i., of Louisville, a distin
guished physician, affirms most positively
and emphatically that no case of yellow
fever ever has or ever will originate in
Louisville, and that the disease is utterly
impossible in Louisville, and the best phy
sicians in Louisville, headed by Dr. Bell,
fully concur in this very emphatic expres
sion of Dr. Vandell. And w hat is true of
Louisville is equally true of Cairo. During
thirty-five years Cairo has had on nnd off
imported yellow fever cases, but the dis
ease has never spread here and it never will.
The Porter case at the hospital, now nearly
four weeks old.) should be proof to all
reasonable persons of this proposition. Just
stick this fact at the alarmist.
