"Dbhocracy 1b a sentiment not to 1)0 appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no baseness,
cowers to no danger, oppresses no wcuknees. Fear
less, ncuerous and humur.c, it rebukes the arrojai-t,
cherishes honor, and sympathises with the humble.
It aifks nothing but what It concedes: It concedes
nothing but what It demands. Destructive only of
dcepotl&m, it is the solo conservative of liberty, la
bor and property. Itistho sentiment of freeium.
of equal obligations. It is the law of nature per
vading the law of the land. The stupid, the sel
fish, the base in spirit may denounce it as a vulgar
thing; but !n the history of our race the Demo.
cratic principle has developed and illustrated the
highest moral and Intellectual attributes of our
nature. Yes, this Is a noble, magnanimous, n sub-
llino sentiment, which expands our affections, en
largos the circle of our sympathies and elevates the
soul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, ho rejects ns jnworthy of his dignity any po
litical immunities over the hnmblest of his fellows.
Yes, It Is an ennobling principle; and may that

people will be glad to honor him as among
the greatest of our dead. General Grant

The Alton Democrat is an outspoken ad
vocate of Tilden's nomination for the Pres
idency in 1880. Beaten with New York men
three times, losing the prize after it had
been conferred upon a fourth New Yorker,
it may occur that the Democracy will final
ly get a New Yorker in the White House,
if they keep on trying. Having tried to do
that thing for a period of sixteen years, it
is rather a captsous Democrat who objects
to trying four years longer. The fifth trial
may prove "the charm."

If Francis Joseph had substituted his
queen, we dare say that old William would
have had abetter relish for the operation,
and we are sure it would have been none
the less interesting to the gaz'ms multi
tude. As we are doomed to sweat and swelter
through many hot days before the present
season closes, the following recipe for "cool
ing off,'' will prove invaluable. It will ac
complish aU that is claimed for it. When
you are overheated take a basin or other
vessel, fill it with cold water from the well
or spring, turn up the sleeves of the shirt
to the elbow, and plunge both hands into
the water at k-hst !x inches. There ! t
them remain five minutes. On removing

draughts of cold water when the body is
heated. The plan above presented is pleas
ant, safe and prompt to give relief.
A "RIGID QUARANTINE."
Montgomery, Alabama, has established a
quarantine that is fitly termed robustuously
rigid. It is suggestive, of scowling giants,
armed and terrible; bludgeons and bloody
heads; bolts, bars and noisome dungeons.
The hapless stranger who approaches the
city limits is collared by a scowling sen
tinel. A printed form is thrust under lus
nose, which he is ordered to read and fill
out, having iu wholesome memory tho
while that the least variation lrom the truth
will subject him to an ordeal of the horrors
of which ho can have no conception. The
stranger then reads and answers the follow
ing interrogatories ;
1. Have you been in Memphis, or any
infected place within the last twenty days?
2 When was the last time you were in
Memphis? How long were you there?
i. Have you or any one traveling in your
charge been in Memphis iu the last twenty
4. Have you to vour knowledge been ex
posed to yellow fever in the past twenty
5. "Where have you been in the past
0. It you remain in tne city oi Montgom
ery three hours, will you register your
name at the omce ot the duel ponce!
Then follows the form of an oath which
is certified to by the large and scowling
person, and, this ceremony being concluded
satisfactorily, the hapless stranger is per
mitted to enter Montgomery, though un
der constant surveillance and in the face of
every indication of distrust and suspicion
on the part of the authorities. Besides
which he has hanging over his head, all the
while, the.following pregnant and gloomy
sentence which appears upon the catechism
blanks in the form of a foot-note:
Any person refusing to answer these
questions, or making uutrue answers, or re
fusing to subscribe on oath to them when
desired, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and
may be fined not less than $30 or nmre
than $100 and also forbidden to enter the
city, or remain there.
In' other words, as thd New Orleans
Times sr.ys, if anything is noticed that
startles the suspicions of the scowling giants,
armed and terrible, the hapless stranger
may, at any moment, be divested of from
30 to $100 and then, that he may not
institute proceedings to recover, he is apt
to be hustled out of the neighborhood, with
a warning to return at his peril. This is a
quarantine that tells; but it is, for this
region of country, a little too muscular.
HON. JOHN H. OBERLY.
The editor of the Mound City Patriot,
moved by an honest purpose to compliment
Mr. Oberly, speaks of him as follows:
"Hon. John II . Oberly, editor of the State
Register, (Mr. O. is not now, and never has
been editor of the Register. Eu. Bulletin-)
is one of the most brilliant lights of the
Democratic party. His bright genius fore
saw and propogated for the endorsement of
his party the l.lrh. Uti .! 15th CWti
tiuional amendments that brought down
upon his prophetic wisdom the anathemas as
fire the curses of his fellow partisans but
which his party in their "last ditch" ot des
peration were compelled to adopt. Yet in
their hearts they could not endorse but
which through a greed for power and any
thing to beat the Republican party they had
emblazoned upon their harness in dazzling
brilliancy. They have been compelled to
follow (and yet stubbornly under protest)
in John's wake. And every measure he
has advocated they have been compelled at
last to accept. He is a man standing head
and shoulders above the majority of his
political associates, und as we have heard
him before proclaimed "a silver-tongUed
orator." His heart lies in a tender place
for his beloved country, but wo arc sorry
to say John has struck the wrong pew. As
a master piece of literature his clear uu
prejudiced views and serious
apprehensions for our national
future; with a true heart's condemnation
for those who would seek to destroy that
which is dearer to a loyal heart than his
life and lor which five hundred thousand of
our best boys in blue dii:d willing sacri
fices on the altar of liberty und national
honor to maintain the integrity of the
Union, and enforce the supremacy of her
laws over every inch ot rebel soil, we
quote the following from his admirable
oration delivered at our national cemetery
on the JJOth of May last:"
"Feilow-Citizens: There still stands in
the midst of the Republic, notwithstanding
the lessons taught by the war for the
Union, a political image with arms out
stretched pointing towards the past. If,
following this reactionary index, we should
lay our hands upon the liberty of the citi
zen or the doctrine of nationality, all the
sileut memories of the great conflict would
suddenly start into life, armed with the
weapons of vengeance, and the loud clamors
of battle would again assuil the ears of the
world. Tiie archer would speed his arrow,
aud it might be, shatter the lambent jewel
of free government that lias made bright
our past, and now illumines our present,
leaving us in darkness around and over
Ih um, but stark on the soil of tlie Republic,
cold in death and execrated would lie the
party that had touched with destroying
h ind, the blood stained results of the war."
The editor of the Metropolis Times copies
the above, and falling into an altisonant
styie, comments upon it as follows: "Yes

patriots who there, amid the scorching rays
of a southern sun, otTerbd' up their lives

this telling victory, unconscious no doubt
that they had brokeu tho strong arm of the

It is a direct blow, lie claims, at the unity
of the Republcan party. Without dirt
and plunder the party would not survive a
year, feucli ltepuuiicans as cleanliness
would not convert to Democracy, it would
demoralize or kill. Of course, says the
Tennessee fellow, there are honorable ex
ceptions good fellows who wash every year.
ABOLISHING THE ISTHMUS.
From the New York Times.
Tho recent series of dinners eaten in Paris
for the purpose of cutting tho Isthmus of
Panama were eminently satisfactory to the
dinners. Those ot them wlio had shared in
the great work of digging tho Suez canal
had no hesitation in saying that of the two
they tound the Panama scheme much more
attractive. Not that there was really any
better assortment of tood and wine, but
even M. de Lessen admitted that the cook
iug was beyond Us wildest dreams. The
whole plan of tho canal, from the oysters to
the cigars, reflected the utmost credit upon
the 'chef,' and b the time that the third
successive dinner was eaten, it was felt that
the canal was inmost as good as cut. There
were, of coutfe, present certain dyspeptic
persons who maintained that there were
difhculties 11 the way ot cutting a canal
through a rtfigc of mountains, but they were
soon made to feel ashamed of their doubts.
M. deLcsrt'ps pointed out that thirty miles
in a vcrtcal direction were no longer than
thirty wiles in a horizontal direction, and
that he would take a little more Chateau
Latitte. He did not deny that there would
be several locks iu the proposed canal, but
he maintain that locks wo.ihl be a "reat
advantage, since they would give the crews
oi passing vessels time to iuu into the
nearest church to repeat a few prayers, as
lie was credibly Iinlormed was the custom
ot American sailors in the canal ot Erie.
Wanning with his subject and the curry, the
veteran cunai-digger proceded to illustrate
the route ot the Panama canal with the aid
of forks and knives showing how it would
start from the salt-cellar, ascend the salad-
bowl with the help of a dozen looks repre
sented by bits of bread, and finally reach
the peaceful expanse of the butter-dish,
that is to say, the Pacific ocean. The
company was completely satisfied with this
detailed description ot the proposed work,
and decided to begin it without fail at
S:43 A. M. the next morning.
But the best-laid dinners of mice and men
frequently prove unsuccessful, as the ooct
has, in substance, remarked. Although the
l'arisiuu diifiers decided to cut the Punama
canal, quantities of beoole who did not
dine with them have since eairerlv demon
strated that it cannot be done; w hile Senator
Buruside goes so far as to assert that for a
lot of benighted European monarchists to
dream of undertaking to do what we cannot
do ourselves is an intolerable outrage, and
an attack upon the faith once committed
to patriotic saints by Mr. Monroe. The
cniei argument made against the feas bilitv
ot the canal is that it would cost too much.
The mountains of the isthmus are extremely
hard, having been constructed before tho
period when mud, sand and other cheap
materials came into use, and there will be
an immense consumption of hammers, pick
axes, Chinamen and shovels 1 M'fore tlu'sn in.
convenient rocks can be cut throttirh. This
willjeost a great deal more money than
.u. ue lifsseps can borrow, and hence we
are assurd that his new canal project can
never ue carried out.
Lanooih, Its C.usk and Rlmkdy. The
cause of langour, when it is not the imme
diate or indirect consequence of positive
disease, is traceable to a debilitating tem
perature. Persons living in a warm, moist cli
mate are peculiarly subject to it. Diminished
physical vigor and an indispositian to active
exertion are its characteristics. Sometimes
it is accompanied by undue relaxation of
the bowels, and by dyspeptic or billions
symptoms. A reliable remedy is Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, a steiigthening nua
alterative medicine derived from tho purest
and most efficacious vegetable sources, with
a pure spirituous basis, and pronounced by
eminent physicians a mild and wholesome
stimulant. The Bitters, foremost of Amer
ican tonics, is largely used in the tropics
where the climate is very productive of de
bility, malarial levers, and disorders of the
bowels, liver and digestive organs.
