OFFICIAL PAl'ER OF AI.EXAXDF.B COINTY.
M.M. Ilarrell, Kditor.
Okn. Looan, of Illinois, ami Matt Car
pouter, of Wisconsin, are the only "salury
Krabljcrs" re-elected to tlu United States
Seuatc. All the balance, Dcnuntritt and
Republicans, were unceremoniously retired.
Mil. William II. Yutulcrbiit furnishei in
himself the paradox of s pauper millionaire.
He Ls tho maqaer und principal owner of
four great railroiwh.'s Hteamslup luie; the
holder of nearly or quite a hundred million
lollara in Western Union and other stocks
and coal shares; is the owner of the finest
stable of horses in America, and a Fifth ave
nue residence' worth $500,000, yet this man
swears that all his personal effects, of what
ever kind and character, his ships and
horses, his stocks and shares a fortune for
a thousand men are not worth one cent !
The only plaasible explanation of this mat
ter that occurs to us, U that Col. William
II. Vanderbilt swore a lie.
Tiik majority of eople regard crime
w ith actual iudifTlrciice if not complacency,
until it becomes known to the. public.
Then it takes on a vast deal of turpitude.
This fact is well illustrated by a recent oc
currence in Dmver. A newly mairied man,
a salesman in a grocery, had, for several
months, stolen provisions from his employ
er to supply workmen in a mine in which
he owned an interest. His thefts were fi
nally discovered and he was arrested. He
broke completely down under the discovery,
although he carried a knowledge of his
criino in his own breast, without any uigns
of moral compunction whatever. He be
seeched the oflicer to permit him to spend
the night at home under guard. The offi
cer consented. Next morning, upon burst
ing open the locked door of the prisoner's
r)om, the officer discovered loth the pris
oner and his wife, lying stark and stiff, I
dead upon their chamle-r floor. The pub
lic had gained a knowledge of their crime,
and they pretered to face death, rather than
endure the iwympathetie gHze and studied
rebuffs of their friends and acquaintances.
An empty viul marked "Laudanum," i:uli-
';iti-d the manner jf thu takin-off.
Mir Minnik Haw k is tearing down h. r
very respectable reputation with a rapidity
that is quite astonishing. By her petulent,
ill-natured and unreasonable conduct in
Chicago, recently, she forfeited all claims
to the respct of that community; and in
New York, more recently, she subjected
herself to a charge, which, if true, should
drive her from the stage in disgrace. In a
card to the public Col. Mnplcsou, her em
ployer, says that for tho previous evening's
entertainment !;he had demanded sixty
tickets, which, being refused, she compro
mised very ungraciously on twenty. At the
entertainment that ensued there were just
twenty persons in the house, who applauded
Miss Hawk most uproariously and unrea
sonably, and hissed, ms,t insultingly, the
other mcmlers of the troupe of whom she
was jealous und with whom she was ut en
mity. That she had used her twenty tick
ets in securing the attendance of that num
ber of pcrsiuis to do this dirty work, wus ho
palpable that the repertuhle rMirt of the
Aiidieuw gave Miss IhwU most umnistuka-
bio evidence of their disapproval of such
unprofessional and unhidy-Iike conduct.
She denies the charge, of course; I ut the
proof agulnst her is conclusive.
you LOGAN AS AGAINST ntibKSUY
Some of our renders seem to rest under
the i'lipivssioii that Tiik 1!i:llktin was, nn
(jiia'.oi dly, in f ivnr of the election of L.irtm
lo l I nil it Sfite. Senate. No in!)
... :l tve L i f the paper toutd form sit. It a ,
i-iuL.-.on item wfat uo said reqviting I
the contest just closed, for wo J were expo-
chilly M)inttnl nnd emphatic in declaring
that if there had been any earthly chanc6
for the election of a Democrat, Tiik IkiXK
tin's voice would have been loud and earn
est in favor of Robinson, Allen, Marshall or
Palmer. The election of a Democrat being
heid ns nn absolute impossibility, however,
we favored the election of Logan as ahainst
Ooi.iisijv, and gave our reasons therefor.
As Dr. Reynolds said of the moderate
drinker and the drunkard, so say
we of Logan and the Democratic party.
Let him abuse Democrats as he ' may,
the partition between him nnd the party is
so thin that ho will scarcely bo conscious
of the fact when ho bulges through. Rut
that is "neither here nor there." Logan Is
the man the Republicans wanted. lie is
not half us bigoted and fanatical in his po
litical notions ns Oglcsby is; lie is a smarter
man than Oglcsby is; can accomplish more
for the State of Illinois, and although he is
"pretty well, thank you," in that way him
sulf, he is not half as coarse by nature, or
half the blackguard in practice that
Oglcsby is. Tor these reasons, Logan
and Ogleby being presented to us,
we preferred Logan. Tiik Bulle
tin has, in times p:ist, assailed Logan with
great violence ; but never, as wo thought,
without ample justification. Wtien like
occasion is again presented, like results
are morally certain to follow; nnd no man
understands this better than Logan him
self. A DESPERATE AM) DISCREDITABLE
We wish it distinctly understood that, the
moment the next war becomes inevitable
we shall be in favor of it, whether the war
be fought w ith the people of Mexico, or the
frozen denizens of Manitoba. But the ef
forts of interested parties to bring on a war
with Mexico are so palpably without war
rant, and, withal, so destitute of the element
of true bravery, that fair-minded, cool
headed men view them with feelings of ab
Ask the most violent clamorer for war
with our weak sister republic, for the rea
sons that move him, and he will answer you
with tho sterreotyped reply: "Oh d n
her, she needs whipping on general prin
cipals; her thieves steal Texan mules', nnd
the Mexicans don't like us anyhow!" And
humiliating as the confession may seem, all
our clamoring.' for war have no better foun
dation than this. That the raids of thieves
arc as frequent from this " side of the Rio
Grande as the other, is not denied by any
honest man who is familiar with the char
acter of that portion of tho Texan, popula
tion that live convenient to the Mexican
border. Every raid from Mexico forms
the topic for general newspaper discussion
while a whole season's depredations by the
thieving raiders of Texas, fails to call our
the merest newspaper mention. That the
Mexicans do not like us, is highly proba
ble; but would they like us any better
should we ravage their coasts, burn their
cities, and slaughter their people? If that is
tlie w.iy to excite love nnd affection, how
happens it the Northern men are not the
very idols of Southern hearts?
For many years Mexico has been con
vulsed by internal contentions in the strife to
s!l0W' wlmt ,ia '""cely yet been shown,
that an average people are capable of self
government. These convulsions, in u sister
republic. bmild have excited our sympathy
and forbearance. We should have extended
words of encouragement to those who were
.-triving to- maintain free institutions; but
instead of doing so, the men umnng us who
insisted tint we should establish a protec
torati! over the whole country, were neither
few nor without iniluence.
For purposes of plunder, the Texans liv
ing on the Rio Grande want war with Mex
ico. In the hope of enforcing un increase
of the army und of gaining greater military
renown, our Sheridan, McKenzie, Bullis
the officers of the army, in short are clam
orous for a conflict. In the belief that
Grant could ride into the Presidency on the
very throes of such an unequal struggle,
every Gruut leader in the country is loud
mouthed in his demands for the bloody
contest; and because he is the tool of bad
men of brains, the intellectual pignui of the
White House. has maintained un attitudoof
hostility, toward Mexico, almost from the
very day of his fraudulent induction into the
office he holds. With all these influences
in favor of war, it behooves the fair-minded
and truly patriotic people of the country to
give voice of their abhorrence of such a
cruel design, before the great masses north
and south, are "bull-dozed" into acquies
cence in what has the undoubted seeming
of a great and inexcusable crime.
For the aims of the war clainorisls the
pending visit of Northwesterh merchants
and bu.-incv men to the Capitol of the
Mexican republic, is most unfortunate, as
they are most likely to conclude that a
hirgu and lucraiive trade with Mexico is
woilli a great deal more to this country

THE .DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
Chicago with a view of encouraging" trado
ltctwcen the two countries by a frank in-;
torcliango of views,.'' Foster, our Minister
in Mexico, was also invited, but instead of
coming, ho sent a long letter interposing
every possible objection against establish
ing tho proposed trade, A copy of this
letter the vicious Foster sent to the State
Department, und caused it to be laid before
the House of Representatives,' so that its
publication might prevent tho proposed
visit, knowing that a personal inspection
of the opjiortunitics for trade, by a ' large
body of intelligent merchants and manu
facturers, would give tho lio direct to all
his unfriendly protestations, and do much
toward defeating tho pot object of his life,
which is to bring about an invasion nnd
subjugation of tho Mexican republic.
For nearly two years, now, Mr. Foster
has exerted himself assiduously to foment
ill-feelinu' toward the Mexicans. He has
not halted at tho most glaring and down
right falsehood; and has, by a consistent
line of misconduct, fully warranted the
charge that has been preferred against him,
that he is the paid ugent ot a powerful
ring or combination of jolibers and
speculators who would become inilionaircs
from the spoils.
It now remains for the honest people of this
conntry to say whether the schemo of those
designing, unscrupulous men shall succeed
or fail. If the enrichment of a combination
of jobbers, speculators, robbers and thieves:
if the placing of additional stars
upon the shoulders straps of a lew-
army officials; if the gratification of a com
paratively few blood-thirsty men; if the
election of Grant to a third term of the
presidency if all this will warrant the
expenditure of hundreds of millions of pub
lic treasure and the sacrifice of tens of thou
sand of valuable lives, then let tho sacrifice
and expenditure be made. Otherwise, let
the war be silenced.
