can protect. If an application of thii doc
trine ihould lead to inflation, it would be a
tafe inflation, and more, do roan who
oolu to the future, could demand or dv
aire. Hence we moy court denial when
we denominate Judge Allen as a lonnd
greenbacker as the ropreBentative of pre
cisely such principles aa the sensihlsi, ra
tional National would carry into ailmioia
tration if he were afforded the opportunity.
He ia an orator of great power ; Davis is no.;
and having Berved a term ia Congre",
he would not, as Daviu would,be compelled
to waste a si-ssion or mure iu guiuitig a
knowledge of the routine of busluca in
formatfcpn that is an absolute cyndi';oi) pre
cedent to any degree of either usefulness or
success. Furthermore, it should ot be
forgotten that the district is very cl, au
very close indeed that the voter who would
prefer a Democratic to a Republican rprv-
sentative, imperils that preference by
throwing away bis vote upon the Nationil
candidate. Mr. Davis could serve no pur
pose in Congress that Judge Allen coul.l
not better isrve; and us there is no more
likelihood that Mr. Davis will be elected
than there is that Col. McKca!r will
voluntarily give up the Cairo post office
into the keeping of the noxious Cl-, the
persistency of Democratic-Nationals ia ad
vocating his claims, at once reaolri-e it.if
Into lometh'ng absolutely enigmatical.
That we do not to-day, pay the) tribute
of deserved obituarie to Nally, ' Mattej,
Crofion and Sullivan, of the Boutnr edi
torial and typographical cofpa, ii due to no
sluggish or dimmed memory of their worth,
or of the friendship we felt for thta; , but
to the rush and hurry incident to the revi
val of the paper. In afewdayi thledaty

W. J. Milford, of Unity,; hae lived U'he

democrat of the district will cheorfillf
tify that the Judge has observed that pledge
and most faithfully and effectively redeem
ed it. With the exception of e Very short
interval, he has devoted hie entire time
to the canvass; and those who know
how actively, and with what food ft
una actnr.raoie discretion "josn JUlts can
deport himself when he tries, need eWthe
told that he has greatly strengthened, not
only himself, but the whole ticket la

"UNDER THE ROD."
After e suspension of seven weeks seven
weeks of sore affliction and dread suspense
the Bcixstts is again "upon its foot." "We
need not say that the suspension was enfor

smitten, know as well that the band f af
fliction that was laid upon the Buixemj
offlce wu not a light one. Tbe fall ie
itroyer passed it's portals, and four of its
attaches "sleep the sleep that knows no
-waking." But we are not so eelleb aa to
parade our individual sorrows btfon the
public in forgetfulness of the bemrwtaeot
and sufferings of others. Hotam which
but e few weeks ago, presented eetue of
happiness and contentment, are fcimwof
mourning now, and of sorrow the twvtp' ij?
