TO TIIK UE1I0CEATS OF THE FIRST
Acting nader a rowlution adopted on
lbf3Uuay of April, 1S79, by the Demo
cratic Judicial Committee of the first cir
cuit, at a meeting held in Cairo, I do here
by call a delegate Convention of the Dem
ocrats of said circuit, to be held in Cairo,
Illinois, on Tuesday the sixth day of May,
1879, at ten o'clock, a. m1 for the purpos:
tf nominating three candidates fur the of
fice of Circuit Judge, to be voted for at the
roMiing June flection.
Under the. bases of representation
adopted by the Cummi'.tey of one delegate
for each two hundred votes and one dele
pate for each fraction of two hundred votes
over one hundred, ct-t for the Tildcn and
Hendricks electors, the counties composin
Ue circuit will each be entitled in the
convention to the fyllowinj; number of
delegate, viz :
Alexander C P pe 4
Kranklin ", PuU.-ki 4
Hardin 'i Saline 5
Jackson 10 Union 11
Johnson 4 Williamson H
. It is suggested that the Chairman of the
Democratic Central Committee of each
county call a convention for the purpose
of selecting delegates on Saturday the 3d
day of May, 1ST9. W. W. 15utn,
Chairman Judicial Committee.
April 4, 1879.
Mr. Bayard offered in the Senate, last
Wednesday, a bill to repeal the jurors test
oath. Many Republicans avowed a will
ingness to vote for its repeal, if the matter
were presented as a separate measure; and
now we shall see how much sincerity there
was in the avowals.
Coixinel Foknet favors the establish
ment of a negro State; and looks upon the
present exodus of negroes from the South
u a part of the work that will bring it
bout. The Colonel thinks a negro com
monwealth is indicated by the scriptures.
If that's so, the matter is settled.
For every dollar puid to deputy niamhals
in the South ut the lust election more than
) were paid for the same purpose in the
north. This clearly shows why the Repub
licans are ao reluctant to part with that im
portant feature f their election machinery.
The appointment of a few hundred special
deputies in large northern cities enables
them to carry close States that, with a fuir
election, would go Democratic.
IT is a disgrace to the Ilritis'i govern
ment that it permits its brave soldiers iu
South Africa to be butchered by overpow
ering numbers of black savages. The world
it now startled by news of another maasa
ure. Col. . Pearson and his command, be-
elgfd at Ekowe, threatened by statvation,
and weary of waiting for relief, attempted
to cut Li way through the savages; but
was repulsed; most of the sortieiug party
being killed outright, or captured and
Murdered ia cold blood. It is feared now
that the remaining force at Ekawo bas been
serjwwered and butchered although his
critical condition . ha been known lsrjg
enough to enable the British govoinmt nt
to send forward to his relict a hundied
thousand men. Tin English tight ,he

Id't their homes in the sunny South in
search of the haven of rest promised tin m
under Urn Windom colonizing bill.
Tiik Iv"public:in victory achieved in
CincinciniMiti was achieved by placing a
linn at the head of the. ticket for Mayor,
who openly declared during the canvass,
that he was not a frequenter of the churches;
"he was not a temperance man in theory,
and that he would skvkr, come what
mi.!,'ht, assist in preventim: law-abiding
citizens from enjoying themselves accord
ing to their usual custom or inclination, on
the Sabbath day or any other day." And
over such a victory as this a victory over
the observance of the Sabbath a victory of
party over morality, are the Kepublican
papers ot thu country, going into noisy
We have prophets among us. A vener
able Democrat who caught the e.ir of an
accommodating uewspaper man, succeeded
in getting his forecast of American politics
in print. He predicts that Samuel J. Til-
deu will be nominated for the presidency in
1880 by acclamation; but that his growing
inlirmities will admonish hiai to get off the
track, and that he will heed them; that
then the Democratic National Executive
Committee will substitute' Samuel J. llan
dall. The first clause ot the "prediction"
is nothing more than a conclusion drawn
from existing facts. The latter clause
doesn't foretell a probability; but should it
be verified, it will be the initial step to
one of the most disastrous Democratic de
feats ever suffered. With Tilden, Palmer,
Hancock, Uayard orThurman, the way will
lie opened to victory. Outside of this nar
row circle the Democracy has no man whose
name will be the synonym of victory.
Tuerk are features in the mechanical
get-up of the new Chicago Times, that can
not be considered improvements. For in
stance : the paper is unwieldy, an 1 not sym
metrical in shape. Its leaded brevier and
solid long primer type, intermixed on the
editorial page, have an unpleasant effect
upon the artistic eye, and suggest (what is
not the case of course) a scarcity of mate
rial about the office. The absence of cap
tions does not enforce a reading of the edi
torials. On the contrary, there never was a
time when the editorial page of the Tim'-s
wa-' so little read as now. IJusiness ni'-n,
who have only an hour or two out of ev-ry
twenty-four to devote to their newspaper, are
UMia'.Iy beguiled iuto the reading of edito
rial" by the head-lines, and pu.-vsovcr those,
tit'.' char ict.T of which they cannot determine
ut a glance. Hut the Times, is nevertheless
a great newspaper creditable to Anerican
enterjiri.se and liberality, and a Western won
der. Its readers would much prefer, how
ever, to see it in its old shape, with an in
crease of pag-.-s, instead r,f an increase
of columns to the page.
Tiik evidence is accumulating that the
vile, treasonable sheet, the 'Southern
States," published at Okolona, Mississippi,
by aa Ohio ex-sutler of the Union army,
was established and is chiefly maintained
by Republican money. Fifty thousand
dollars, invested in the establishment and
maintenance of ten newspapers like the
"Southern States," would make the North
solid Republican, and the wire-pullers ot
that party seeing the effect produced by the
out givings of the "Southern States," the
investment will doubtless be made. A
great party like the Republican party, that
embraces great statesmen and at least two
and a half million of voters, is driven to a
most desperate strait, when it finds it nec
essary to hold the Democratic purty respon
sibly for the utterances of a weekly news
paper that no Democrat recognizes as an
exponent of his party's faith. It is a vkky
little thing for a great party to do.
I'hk issue between the Democratic and
Republican party is plainly and truthfully
stated by the St. Louis Republican. It
sivs: "Matters are cloarinir up at Wash
ington, and the country can see what the
issue between the Democrats and Republi
cans really is. The Democratic House has
passed Urn bill makimr appropriations for
the support of the army all tho Republi
cans voting against it -and tho Democratic
Senate will pass it this week and send it to
Mr. Hayea. If there is any revolution in
this the country cannot seo it. Ceitainly it
would seem that t to revolutionary apirit
is on the aide of those wha oppose tho nec
essary opproprlations rather than of tlioso
who favor them. Tho army and thu do-
partmenta will bo provided for by tho bills
which tho majority are about V pa unless
Mr. Hayes doleati them. If tlisro shall be

means of support it will be his fault. The
Republicans are a king hint to veto the
appropriation bills. Xoexevutive has done
such a thing in this generation, nrnl it '
ditlicult to imagine that Mr. Hayes will do
it. A veto would delight tho Republican
l -aders, for it would precipitate one of
those agitations which they delight in.
lint it would not do Mr. Hayes' adminis
tration any good. It would provoke the
hostility of Congress and make him respon
sible for tlie uproar that would surely fol

shall have its needed appropriate ms; is it

The Coffee Tavern company in London

The Rev. W. H. Strause, of the Christian

During January, February and March
the New York Elevated railroad curried
7,569,470 passengers, aud the Metropolitan
Elevated railr ad 4,935,623. It is evident
that, with the increased facilities contem

Adeliade Neilou, it is said, has excited
the sympathy and admiration of the In

the proper tune. It will be necessary lor
her to get robbed and wear a j on the end

when she returns to America.

to marry Herr Dessauer, director of the

with the avowed purpose of making a
good match, in which she has succeeded.
According to the marriage treaty, the j
Duchess of Connaught is to have f 7,500 J

Virginia. A negro and a white woman
