OFFICIAL PAPER OF TOE CITY AND COUNTY
Only Morniwr Daily In Southern Illinois
Not only the British tinny in Imliii, but
tho people and native Princes, as well a the
begums, appear to licenser for war against
Afghanistan. In the meantime, Russian sol
diers and officers of t lie army are enthusiast ic
in the desire to be sent east toco-operate with
the Ameer against the Hiitish forees threat
ening Afghanislans. At the same time,
a renewal of the war between Russia and
Turkey seems unavoidable, the treaty of Ber
lin being utterly inoperative in the matter
of settling the (tiestions at i-wtie between
Tiik London Telegraph deplores the mis
understanding that exists between the
Washington Government and that of Grent
Britain on the Fisheries question, and adds:
t "Let the whole facts be put before the pub
lic and we are sure the men of common
sense in both countries will soon arrive at a
friendly agreement." Upon which the St.
Louis Times very sensibly remarks that it
is rather difficult to see how "men of com
mon Dense." can arrange an international
question unless ihey ate empowered
by their respective governments with diplo
matic powers. The bungling work of the
late Ilallifax Commission, which gave five-and-a-lmlf
millions of dollars to England
without equivalent, shews that we want
men of common sense organized into a com
mission to settle in equity the matter at
issue"; and there should be men appointed
on behalf of the Government who will not
"give us away" nor sell us out. No pro-
' vine hug a right to contravene a treaty
made by the General Government ; and that
is what has lieen done in this case by the
Province of Newfoundland. Let us have
justice- as well as common seuse. '
OBERLY AT DANVILLK.
Our chief object in transferring the fol
lowing paragraph from the columns of the
Danville Post to the columns of The Bul
letin is tliut our readers may know that
Mr. O., though absent from from Cairo, had
"the cause!' at heart, and lost no opportuni
ty to work for it this, and nothing more:
"Considering that Thursday evening brought to
our city a wedding, a theater, and the Eentlctnau
from Cairo, a large audience greeted the speaker at
the Lincoln Opera Homo. To do ample Justice to
Mr. Oherly la beyond our ability, for such an out
pouring of reason, pith, and logic, minified bo be
witcalngly with aparkllug wit and irrepressible
mirth was never before heard In Danville. Mr.
Oberlyln his original and Inimitable mauner dis
cussed the Issues In an entirely different light
from the old heateu track of argument, and the
principle of Democracy at hla hand underwent a
scrutiny with the powerful leases of bnmau reason
and the reflection from the mirror of truth tmpress-
ed upon the minds of all tho conviction that to per'
peiuate the gift or the Couitltutlou to continued
posterity the lnetltutlou or Democracy ahould be
supported by every lover or equal aud exact Jnitlce.
Hla rcmarka were the key-none to tho arch orDcmo.
tratlc ipeecuoa delivered in this city thla campaign,
and the Influence diffused lu the apeecb will bo felt
at the polli next Tuesday. Taken aa a whole, the
speech wat a credit to Mr. Oberly and a eulogy to
the Democratic party."
PRECISELY A3 IT OUGHT NOT TO
It is vain to indulge regrets uml denunci
ations now, but it reflects upon the indus
try and forethought of the leading Demo
crats ot Cairo, that uut u single regular
cnaiieoger was etatioced at any the polls.
It is claimed by those whose opportunities
for observation were good, that not less
than two hundred illegal votes were cast
yesterday, and that more than five-sixths of
them were thrown for Capt. Thomas and
the Republican ticket. ( Allen is beaten
in the district by not more than onu hun
dred votes, the. result may be uncribed to
the negligence aud iuditl'ereuce of Cairo
Democrats. At as late an hour as 5 o'clock
p. di., over torty registered Democratic vo
ters of the second preciact, had not put in
an appearance at the polls; aud what was
trua of that precinct was to a greater or less
extent, true, of the other four precincts
of the 'city, The several judges of tho
lection performed their duties well, ami
aa far as w could learn, did all that judgi
could , do to protect the ballot box from
frauds. The execution of alwut four lum
dred affidavits by persons of whoso right
tho judges were not satisfied, ahowed the
exercise, of a watchful care, on their part.
But this diligenco was not, and could not
have been made effective in keeping out
illegal vote, Scores of persons swore in
their votes without understanding the tenor
and enct of the affidavits to which they
subscribed, whilst others knowingly swore
to falsehoods. In all this the Democratic
candidates we'o the sufferers. Had the
vote been a fair one and a full One -such a
vote us proper diligenco and houest effort
on both sides might have secured, every
Democratic nominee on tho ticket wonld
have received fully two hundred votes more
than were cast for him.
We feel no disposition to locate Uie respou
nihility on any particular shoulders. Our
committees were without funds, and could
not organize as complete acampaign as they
otherwise might have done. But the pres
sing need of challengers was apparent early
in the day, and upon the shoulders of any
and every Democrat who might have as
sisted in supplying this need, rests a share,
and not a small, of the responsibility.
THE EFFECT OF IT.
A study of the history of Mempliis, New
Orleans, Galveston and other cities of the
South that have suffered from the periodic
al visits of the yellow fever, and the reflec
tion that all the cites of the Ohio valley,
arc, in a climatical sense, as liable to visita
tions from the epidemic as Cairo is, assures
us we need have'no serious misgivings as to
the effect.' our present affliction will have
upon our future. i '
Nearly ull of us will miss friends, a
numlx-r of us relatives, and in many fam
ilies there will be, for a season
yet, the evidences of sorrow and be
reavement. But the claims of lifo are too
numer.ma and pressing to permit us to con
tinue an indulgence of bur "luxury of woe."
The living and our own multiplying needs,
will divert our minds from the contempli
tion of present sorrows, and the affairs of
our life will sewn be running in their ac
customed channels. It is a blessed thing
that we are ' thus constituted that
the riefn - of to-day are forgot
ten to-morrow, and that the skies which
nru dark aud threatening now, will ere long
reveal their "cerulean blue" and shower
down upon us but light and sunshine. In
other words, Cairo will soon forget the
pungs she has suffered, aud move on, as of
old, to the achievement of her destiny.
This has been the experience of Memphis,
of New Orleans and all other cities of the
South that have been smitten with the yel
low fever epidemic.
In the year 1820 tho population of New
Orleans numbered 27,000 souls. During the
years 1810, 1822 and 1829 the city suffered
terribly from visits of the yellow scourge,
yet in 18:10 the population had increased to
40,310. In 1833, 1835 and 1837, there were
epidemics, yot during that decade the
growth of the city was most wonderful the
population in 1840, reaching 103,103.
Again in 1841, 1843 and 1847 there were
epidemics, but still the census of 1850
showed a population of 116,375. 1853 was
the terrible epidemic year; 1858 was an
other epidemic year, but the census of 1800
foots up n population of 168.475. In 1867
there was another epidemic, and the census
of 1870 shows a still further increase 191,-
418. From the little colony of Bienville of
fifty souls, in 1718, New Orleans has thus
gradually expanded its borders far out into
the erstwhile Impenetrable swamp and along
the shores of the Mississippi, from the
plains of Chalmette to the upper line of
Carrollton, has now a population of 225,-
000, and but for more direful -calamities
than pestilence the census would show a
Bt ill more largely increased population.
The history of Memphis, Galveston and
other southern cities, has been but a coun
terpart of that of New Orleans. Nature
there, as here, furnishes ample' compensa
tion for occHsionul besetments, and time,
but a short time, effectually healed the
bruised hearts, and solaced the accompany
The conveyance ot the kmtiis of the dis
ease to Gallipohs, Ohio, and their develop
ment there to the destruction of nearly or
quite one hundred citizens, amply demon-
states that if Cairo cannot claim exemption
from visits of the yellow plague, neither
can any of tho cities or towns of
the Ohio valley. Awuy oil', ' more
than five hundred tulles east of the junction
of tliMit'rivers, and In the heart of the
State of Ohio, it taged with more virulence
than it did here; tmt there, as here, the
cauae of Its presence is understood," and
here, whether there or not, our experience
has taught us how we may fence it out;
and to say that the knowledge thus gained
will not bo employed in the years to come,
U to say that we will have no care for our
own lives, our property or of anything else
that renders life secure or givea value
to property. As we have before re
marked, Mound City and Columbus, one
above and the! other below, and both lying
almost directly on our borders, fenced out
the pestilence, and kept it at bay, by the
establishment and maintenance of an effec
tivo quarantine.' They had time to profit
by our experience, awl did so. The result

fore this reaches your readers, the fiuul e''
tion of the year will have taken place, be
cause of recent Republican losses, iy vliich
the control of the House of Repifsenhtives
is apparently assured to the Deiiocraa, less
interest is felt in the election gnerallj than
was felt in October. But in most of the
states questions outside of representation in
tho lower house are to be settled. In Mas
sachusetts the contest is between Butler,
able and unscrupulous, ami the old "ring"'
which has governed and pi htged the state
and taxed its people into peverty foi gen
erations. The present cstinates of B-ttler's
friends elect him; those, of his ciemiea
beat him badly. In this nrd other cases
we shall know better after election. In
New York the enlivening issue is upon
the election of a legislature which
will return Roscoo Conkling It the
senate. In Pennsylvania a great etfert will
be made in behalf of Don Cameron for the
like position. In Illinois Logan and Ogles-
by are rivals for senatorial honor. In Wis
consin Matt Carpenter enters the contest
for the senatorship as an independent can
didate. In the southwestern states a weak

So, on all hauds.there are sjiecial subjects
of interest for the people to vote on. May
we have the largest vote ever cast, and may

There is an impudeut audacity about
the acts of the' Central Pacific railroad
ring that would be refreshing if it
were not dangerous. Their latest turn
of the cerews is calculated to send
alarm to the business tuterests of this coun
try. It has thus far prevented the construc
tion of any competing road to the Pacific
on the line of the Texas and Pacific railway
by promises to extend the Southern Pacific
of California to the Rio Grande, and now
relying upon the hope that they can control
Congres, and thus perpetually defeat all ef
forts nt competition, the managers turn
about and combine with the Jay Gould ring
to establish a connection nt Sante Fe with
the Atchison, Topeku and Sante Fe road
by which they hope to make still more pow
erful thn monopoly which now dictates
terms to Congress and to transcontinental
This is a most dangerous combination,
and is especially disastrous to the south,
which has been deceived In the belief that
the Central Pacific company really intended
to build a through line near the Mexican
border. Very likely the southern members
of congress will take notice of this adroit
Hianteuvering to choke off rivalry as well us
to defeat legislation in the interest of cheap
freights, and demand some action that shall
secure them the fruits of the general Pacific
railroad system, a part of which must be a
road on the Texas Pacific line. At any rate,
congress cannot fail to take official notice of
the growing power of the infamous Central
Pacific-Huntington Jay Gould ring.

-Pruttville, Ala., July 20, 1 878.--Botanic
Medicine Co., Biill'tilo, N, Y.: Gentlemen
About three months go I commenced
using your "Anti-Fat " at which time my
weight was 210 pounds. By following
your directions carefully, I hare succeeded
in reducing my weight to 158 pounds. This
is all very satisfactory ami pleasant ; but
just previous to my commencing the use of
your medicine, I hud purchased two suits
of line clothes at a high price, and find, to
my dismay, that they are entirely useless to
tnc llow. YVUi'ii I put nun of my ivmtflon,
my friends tell me it looks like a coffee
sack on a bean pole, and when I put the
pants on- well, description fails. My ob
ject iu writing is to ascertain whether you
have not, in connection with your medicine
business, an establishment where your pa
trons, similarly situated, could exchange
these useless garments for others that would
lit. I tliiuk you ought to hiiv. something
of the kind, as it would le un inducement
for many to use the Anti-Fat, 'who now ob
ject to using it, in consequence of the loss
they would sustain in throwing aside valua
ble garments. J list turn this matter over
in your mind. A "Clothing Exchange" is
what yon want in connection with your
Anti-Fat business. Yours truly,
