'Deo.tuct Is a sentiment not to be appalled,
comtptcd or compromised . It knows no baseness,
cowers to no danRi-r, opprcs t ee no weuknece. Fear
less, generous and humnue. It rebukes the arrogant,
chcrie hes honor, and ivtr.pathiecs with the bumble.
It aki nothing tmt what It concedes; It concedes
nothing but what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, It Is the sole conservative of liberty, la
bor and property. It Is the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It U the law of nature per
vading the law of the land. The stupid, the sel
fish, the bate in spirit may denounce It us a vulgv
thing; but In the history of onr race the Demo
cratic prlnclplo has developed und Illustrated the
higheet moral and Intellectual attributes of our
nature.. Yes, this Is a noble, magnanlmons, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands our affections, en
larges tho circle of our sympathies and elevates the
soul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, he rejects as anworthy of his dignity any po
litical Immunities over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes, It Is an ennobling principle; and may that
spirit w hich animated our fathers In the Revolution
ary contest for Its establishment continue to ani
mate ns, their sons. In the Impending struggle for
Its preservation." ' WILLIAM ALLEN.

The negro residents about Amherst C. II.
Virginia, couldn't agree as to who should
preach old Jane Clark's luneral sermon.
The Sisters of Sarah, of which society sliu
had beea President, had determined to have
Rev. , llobert Cook, a colored preacher in
Lynchburg, to perform tho ceremonies.
Upon tho arrival of the remains at tho
church, they found the Rev. Daniel Nowdcn.
another colored preacher, in the pulpit.
He had been invited to officiate by the
relations of the deceased. Tho members
of the society were indignant, and insisted
that Rev. Nnwden should vacate. The re
lations insisted that he should go on. Then
tlicy fell to blows, and both men and
women took a hand. Many were injured
in tho scuflle, the coffin was turned over
and burst open, and tho shrouded and
grinnsng corpse fell ou the floor in the
midst of the combattants. The Nowden
party succeeded in driving the other side
from tho church. Mr. Nowden, however,
had fled at the firht show of fight, and the
sister was burled without a preacher,
We heartily congratulate tho people of
Union county on the ascertained certainty
tint the ground beneath their feet contains
elements of wealth that need but the touch
of properly directed industry to give old
Union place among tho richest ami most
prosperous counties of the Went. I n speuk
ingot tho recent discovery of immoiiso mar
ble beds, the Jonesboro Gazette says: It
is not generally known that tho wholo of
ho United States m Ctmaduaro obliged to
procuro marble for monumental purposes
from Portland, Vt., or from Iuly, those
places Veing tho only ones in tho know n
world which furuMi marble imaweriiig for
that purpose. Therefore it can bo easily
imagined the sort of monopoly the owner
of these quarries have, and what an impor
tant business it would become in this
couuty if the right thing in that line could
bo found and wo are fully convinced that
it baa, as ro bavo been shown samples that
for color, texture, and general muko-up aro
fully equal, if not superior to the celebrated
marblo of Carrara, Italy. We oro credibly
informed that the citizens of Jonesboro
may expect to see before many montlis,mills
erected in this vicinity for tuo purpose of
turninj;, sawinij and working this marble
up into all the different shapes requisite for
wholesale dealers and furniture manufac
turers. The Bclletix is anxious to shield its
readers from prosecutions under the game
law. Gun clubs are forming in all the
towns of Southern Illinoi", and one of the
leading objects is the enforcement of the
game laws. And as rewards aro paid for
convictions under the law it is scarcely
probable that the guilty will escape. As a
constant reminder of what they may not do
hunters should cut out the following and
paste it in their hats : Prairie chickens may be
killed between the 15th of August and the
1st dav of December. Quail and nhcas
ants may be killed between the 1st day of
October and the 1st of Januarv. Wild
geese, duck, brant or other water fowl, may
be killed between the 15th of August and
the 1st day of May. Woodcock may bo
killed between tho 4th of July ami tho 1st
of January. It is unlawful to kill any wa
terfowl during the night time. Trapping
and netting any game birds is unlawful.
The citizens of DuQuoiu are providing
attractions that will draw a large crowd to
their city. On the 19th and 20th there will
be a grand shooting match, in which all
tho "crack shots" of Southern Illinois arc
expected to participate. Over one thou
sand pigeons have been provided, and the
manner in which these cruel, voracious
birds (?) will be maimed and killed, will
le perfectly delightful. The ground will
be literally covered with detached wings,
legs, head and feathers; aud fluttering,
wounded birds will be seen underfoot
everywhere. A thousand pigeons to be
bhot at! If possible the DuQuoin Sabbath
schools should be brought upon the ground
to enjoy the sport ! No child should miss
such elevating, inspiriting amusement.
Mayhap that hundreds of the birds, fool
ishly thinking they have regained their
liberty, will ha! ha! ha! be shot all to
pieces! To deny the little boys and girls
of DuQuoin such a sight as that, would be
cruel. They should be there to see the
miserable things wriggle I
Sisce Mr. B. M. Chambers obtained a
controlling intercut in the St. Louis-Times
Journal, it has been one of the best news
papers in tlio West. If wo are to believe
the Globe-Democrat, however, the increased
excellence of the paper has operated as a
constant drain upon Mr. Chamber's private
means. That gentleman desiring to stop
that drain by putting the establishment on
a paying otisis, luunu that the
two editors whom he desired to
displace, claim to bo owners of stock in
the concern, ranging anywhere from $10,000
to $!50.000. Mr. C. then told the two edi
tors that if they expected to retain their po
sitions they must put up cash, commensu
rate with the amount of their stock. They
begged for a week's time. It was given,
ami now at the end oi two weeks none of
their cash has come m sight, liut with a
brazcunei-s that was quite refreshing thishot
weather the would-be two editors continued
to hold their positions without giving Mr.
Chambers any satisfaction whatever, or in
timating what they propose to do. There
was, as the G.-D. says, but one course left
to the proprietor stop tho payment of sal
aries, and that policy was adopted. The
order was general, including reporters and
editors alike, and herein it differs from the
trouble a few weeks since, for the local
staff was not then included. This time the
local men are dragged into tlio fight and
made to suffer, while throughout they
have endeavored to be "non-partisan" aud
performed their duties laithfully, irrespec
tive of who pretended to be nuuiugiiig the
After making out the assignments Friday,
the city editor called a meeting of tho re
porters, und it was decided that the treat
ment they had received was discourteous in
the extreme, and nothing lees than an insult
of tho grossest nature. A message was dis
patched to Mr, Chamber, but no satisfac
tion was received. What the result will be
remains lor future determination.

Leoti makes out a trontotidoiisl strong case
against woman's suffrage, at least m his own
estimation. (I tnku tho writer to be of tho
male persunslon). I agree that tho argu

that sltlo of tho question will admit of,

TIIE i)AILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
Friend Lcoti, they aro the samo as youi's
and mine; the righto 'of life, liberty and
pursuit of happiness. : God made woman
man's companion, not his slave. You cite
to scriptures where God tells Evo that Adam
should rule her. Now if this is to bo taken
.literally, then the life of the savage is tlio
correct one, and the life of civilization and
enlightened humanity a farce. In the very
next verse God tells Adam that the ground
is cursed. The ground lias to be tilled to
brinaf forth fruit; is that a curse? The labor
ot tilling the ground gives health to our
bodies and strength to our Binews, and
makes man more contented and happy than
getting excited because ot woman's uffragc ;
is that a curse? And after the season of
labor Providence blesses these efforts with
an abundant harvest ; is that a curse? If it
is, millions of people blaspheme their God
by thanksgiving and praises. My experi
ence in the matter is, that those men who
are most opposed to, and talk the loudest
against "woman's suffrage" are mostly those
who spend most of their time about street

ioriy-rou wnisKy mat somebody else pays
for, while their wives are invading their
rights by taking the ax and going to the
woods after fuel to cook their lord's grub,
and sometimes even worse, making the
whole support for the family. Well, upon
second thought, I believe a man has aright
to protest vehemently against such an inva
sion of his rights.
I agree with friend Lcoti entirely in r
gard to womans being physically inferior
to man; but I deny that on that account
she is not entitled to vote, if she wants to.
If the right of suffrage depends upon brute
force, our elections are a fraud, our repub
lic a lie. "Whether or not woman is capa
ble of filling the position of voted r, legisla
tor, minister, lawyer or president is not to
be considered in the question.1 Isn't it
fiiend Lcoti? Well, that is rather a novel
idea, entirely new to me, and if original,
should be grandly rewarded by a magnifi
cent prize a leather button. For proof of
this idea you say "woman is capable oi
getting drunk," and ask "does that give
her the right to get drunk?" The depth
of such logical reasoning is even more
wonderful than the idea that led to it; it is
sublime. Has man any more right to get
drunk than woman? It would seem so,
for it does not hinder him from voting, and
in some cases can't vote the right ticket
without getting pretty full of some candi
You say the right of suffrage will de
grade woman. You would not believe
tiatofyour mother, would you Lcoti?
Can you then ask others to believe it of
their mothers? From what history teaches
us of woman, wo learn, that, whatever
station or position she has occupied she has
acquitted herself creditably and olten
nobly. We have an illustrious examplo of
wouiau's fitness for exalted positions in
Victoria of England. Is England's queea
of to-day less honored for her true womanly
qualities because of her holding the high
est office of the realm? Here in Illinois
several women hold the office of County
Superintendent of Schools, some of whom
have been elected for the second term, one
of them in this county; and a truer woman
would bo hard to find. "Does not the
right of suffrage carry with it the right to
bear arms?" Certainly, my friend, and
the ladies, or some of them exercise this
right, which you may witness at any fash
ionable ball, they not only
bear (bare) arms, but necks too.
With reference to women becoming sol
diers, they could stand tho army regula
tions very well, which require physical as
well as mental capability, andthoso women
that nre able to pass muster would make
very good soldiers, though tho number
would probably not be large, but then if
they filled tho civil offices, it would give
more patriotic men a chance to fight, bleed,
and die for their country. Are men de
prived of the right of suffrage on account
of physical inability to servo their country
as warriors? Suppose Iriend Leoti you go
to ('(ingress and introduce a bill disfran
chising nil men that aro physically incapa
ble to perform tho duties of Boldiers; if you
do your naino will become fatuous
