For the first time within the memory of
the oldest inhabitant, the cotton crop of the
South is suffering from the ravages of the
cut worm. Considerable replanting has
become necessary already. It is estimated
that the crop has suffered in this way from
two to five per cent., and considerable ap
prehension is entertained as to the devel
opements of the future.
It is fiomewhat astonishing that the Re
publicans who hold Democratic congres
sional caucus in such absolute horror,
nuoulil resort to identically. the same means
to bring out their candidates for Circuit
Judges. What is highly reprehensible in
Democrats at once becomes a virtue if cov
ered with thu mantle of lUpublieanism.
Unfortunately for the Republican party,
honest, intelligent people don't look at
things that way,

Tho cholera enn't be communicated by

it otherwise. The war letters tho average
newspaper reader gulps down with such
keen relish arc written in the attics of six
story New York priuting offices, by impe
cunious Bohemians, who arc paid from 50
cents to$1.2 a letter the price being
ganged by the magnitude and absurdity
of the falsehoods.
One of the must horrible accidents of
which we ever heard the details occurred
last Monday in oae of the tallow rendering
establishments of East St. Louis. A yodng
German named Louis 3Iehlig, who wus
well known and much esteemed in the
village, was standing near the rendering
vat in which there were six feet of boiling
water. While talking with the foreman
of the establishment, be took a step back
ward into the vat and sank to the bottom.
It required two or three minutes to remove
the young man from bis scalding bath and
although recovered alive, his flesh was
fairly cooked. 'When the physicians took
him in hand and sought to remove his
clothing, the skin adhered, and left him
partially flayed alive. There is no earthly
chance of the poor fellow's recovery.
The editor of the Springfield Journal
finds it utterly Snipos-ible, when speaking
of, Democracy or the Democratic party, to
tell the truth. Lie mentally flagellates
himself every time he realizes that he has
done a political opponent even-handed jus
tice. A sample lie is the following, and there
is not a man in the State, who reads news
papers, who doesn't know it is a lie. He says :
The Democracy ot the Okolona Southern
States is vouched for by Democratic pa
pers and politicians, both North and South."
If the editor of the Journal were to be
hanged to-morrow in case of default, he
couldn't truthfully name a single Demo
cratic editor or n single prominent Demo
crat, politician or otherwise, in any of the
northern states, who vouches lor, indorses
or sympathizes with the abominable
utterances of the paid Republi
can tool of the Okolona States.
The Journal man knew ho was penning a
falsehood; and, if it will do anybody any
good, he'll confess that ho knew it. Since
the revival of the Journal nobody pretends
to believe a single word of its political out
givings, unless corroboration can be found
elsewhere which, we need scarcely add, is
found "hardly ever."
Tiie following blow takes effect direct
ly behind Senator Logan's ear, and knocks
him as stiff as an iron poker. It has the
unmistikeable ear murks of the author,
and need not, therefore, be formally credit
ed: "That peculiar friend of the soldier,
General Logan, diopped into the senate de
bate, yesterday, with an amendment to the
pending bill providing that disabled veter
ans shall be preferred to other persons for
appointment to government offices and
c erkships, if qualified. The amendment
was not in order, but that made no differ
ence to Logan. He wanted to show his
sympathy for the. soldiers, in contrast with
Democratic disloyalty, and he did it. Mr.
Logan served in the house of representa
tives and sat in the senate for six years,
when his party had full control of the ex
ecutive and of congress. There were then,
as now, disabled veterans who wanted offi
ces, but with all the gushing sympathy of
the party for that class of citizens, a law
giving soldier preemption rights to public
offices was not enacted. Mr. Logan is pro
bably in error if he believes this has been
forgotten, or can be concealed under such
rubbish as his offer of an amendment,
which he knew could not be accepted.
When he and his party might have enact
ed what they pleased, they refused to make
such provisions for soldiers as he now asks
the opposition to make. The move in the
senate yesterday was a characteristic hum
bug. SCRAP.? OF NEWLY-MADE HISTORY
FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF
HONEST MEN. ,
Tho present judicial contest has taken n
political seeming, because the'. Republican
party would not have it otherwise. Before
a Democrat in the circuit had mentioned
politics in connection with the contest, be
fore a nominating convention had been
talked of, the Republican Central commit
the met in this city and to what end ? f o
devise means to bring about the election
of the fittest men in the field - to see to it
that the bench was not unworthily filled?

the purpose; and there is not omT of tho
committee who will have tho cftWitery to
deny tho charge.
That the Republican party, mhtalculat
ing its strength in tho district, intended
to make a political contest, was plainly in
dicated last summer, when it appointed its
Judicial Central Committee. The circuit,
or the counties composing it, had been Dem
ocratic ,for fifty years, yet such o
thing as a Democratic Judicial Central
Committee was never even suggested. It
remained for the Republicans, tho very mo
ment they saw the remotest possibility of
success, to organize their forces for the pur
pose of precipitating political judicial con
tests. These facts are now matters of his
tory, and there is not a Republican in the
district who dares to interposo a denial of
The Democrats, in view of tho palpable
designs of their opouents, would have been
recreant to themselves, to their party and
their duty as citizens, had thev neglected to
take up tho gauntlet thus defiantly thrown
down to them. And, taking it up, they
called a general, open convention, to name
their candidates. Every county in the cir
cuit had its delegates present, and the man
doesn't live who can truthfully say that the
candidates were not fairly and honestly
chosen, because they were the choice of the
convention, and the apparent choice at
least, of the party. These nominees had
not been in the field an hour
before the Republican Central
Committee, the members of which had come
to this city for that purpose, met in some
backroom, closed the. doors upon them
selves, admitted no ouuidcrs, and thus
secluded, ami assuming to act for the Re
publican party, nominated Baker, llarker
and McCartney as the Republican candi
dates. By what processes Dougharty and
Clark were mollified, no man knows out
side of the managing ring. We only know
that they acquiesced in the action of the
caucus and now support its nominees.
Hence it is plain that lrom the very
inception of the canvass the wire-pullers of
the Republican party intended to fill all
three of the seats on the bench with Re
publicans, utterly regardless of the ability
or general fitness of the men, or of any
other consideration but that of the parties of
All this being true, the responsibility fur
introducing politics rests nowhere but upon
the shoulders of those who manipulate the
Republican party; and Republicans, Dem
ocrats and Green Mac Kcrs who de
precate politico-judicial contests,
will, if honest in their resent
ment, vote against the nominees of the lie
publican caucus. For consistent, right
thinking Democrats, only one course is
flpon, and that is to vote for Crawford,
Browning and Lansden. They f Tin the
better ticket, are men of superior attainj
mer.ts, of spotless integrity, have never
been politicians, and would honor the po
sitions for which their party has named
them. Let every Democrat go to the polls,
then, and vote for his party nominees. This
done, the ballots will tell the story of the
triumphant election of Lansden, Brow r; in:'
