Hiiiiivim & eatiflldate for election tothe offlco
of Afupupor and Treasurer of Alexander County tt
the approaculnsNovcmDer election.
It seems that nearly all the Cabinet will
take rmrt in political camraiens. The
President and Secretary Sherman, are elec
tioncering in Ohio, and now comes Secre
tary Evarts to say that ho intends to make
speeches in New York for Cornell's election
The Mississippi River Commission at its
meeting at St. Louis in October will perfect
its schemes for improvement probably for
tha examination of. Congress. Those
schemes will involve an ' expenditure of
three or four hundred pillion dollars.
The stalwart Republicans aro rejoicing
over the nomination of Lang for Governor
of Massachusetts, over Tierce, who is not
regarded highly by them. Mr. Lang repre
sents the radical wing of tho party, and
his nomination is considered a jjreat tri
umph in a state where "Bristow and reform"
repressed the hot heads in 1873. ,
Commekt is varied on he letter of Ji if
Davis declining the U60 of his name for the
U. S.senatorehip in Mississippi. The moro
general opinion appears to be that it is a
tliploinatic declination only, intended to
pave tho way for a smoother courso to the
Senate, supposing that "taffy " was neces
sary to cover his fierce denunciations of the
U. 8. government and his radical adherence
to the state rights idea. ' It is expected, in
. Washington, that Davis will be elected, and
if he is, ''good bye" to a quarter of a mil
lion Northern Democrats.
The Republicans are still rejoicing over
the result in Maine, white the Democrats
are explaining that it is not their funeral,
sinco the Greenback party ran the cam
paign and is the party that must be buried
under the ruins. That is not faiBfrom true.
Repudiation and rag money have no homo
in New England, and no party can succeed
there or hold up its head long upon such
theories, Rut there is ono
Democrats arc free to. acknowledge, namely
that-the Republicans wiil make a clean
sweep of the Greenback State officers (for
which wo notice the Democrats are not
especially Sorry, and, in tho language of
one Democratic paper, that the result is the
"greatest triumph of Blaine' life, "end "puts
him fairly on the track for the Presidency."
A most persistent effurt 19 beiug made by
a Washington clique to forco the "Grant
movement" ahead, and it is a fact that they
succeed in deluding many who are not in
favor of Grant' nomination into.givingthem
a lift under their disguise. Thus, while iu
Bau Francisco thu reception , tendered to
Geo. Grant was hearty qu the part of men
f all political vtowa, nnd while the friend
of other candidate were conspicuous in
showering honor upon him, . tho so-called
Grant men worked the alYuir o aa to nuke
it appear that it all has a political signifi
cance, itstead of a pemmal boarinif. The
fact almost every one is ready and anx
ious to givo tho General a grand reception
and to shout for him as the hmo of many
ftcluevemvints'.(l'ot this cnth aslusm is mere
ly or mostly personal, and will not hold

political account; nd many men ara Sndig

Their courso must havocs reactionary and
disastrous effect on the General's standing
iii.fnii. lorn? if it is allowed to CO on. The
reaction, in truth, is seen already.
Tub decrease in tho value of real cstato,
and other property during the past six
ears, lias been most wouderful, and in na
portion "'of tho country has that -decrease
been moro marked and decided than iu tho
State of Illinois. Of tho causes, wo snail
not speak, but will satisfy pursulvca with a
brief presentation of facts. Iu tho year
1ST3 the real and personal property of, the
State of Illinois, were valued, for purpose
of taxation, at $1,210,108,803. The value
of tho same property, iu- tho year 1879, is
1 A 4.1 f I 10 Oifll ulirtmlim .lnopiflcn
iu six ycajs, of '.1105,800,017, or something
over 38 per cent. In 1873, tho taxable
property of Alexander county waa valued
at $3,430,442. Tho assessment of the pres
ent year foots up only $3,183,209 a de
crease gf moro than 50 per cent. The as
sessment of Winnebago county was reduced
from $33,088,137 to $9,329,718, being a do-
crease of CO per cent. In 20 counties
the ' decrease lias been over 50
per cent. In only tour counties
has there been, an increase. Green county
shows tho extraordinary increase of 73 per
cent.; Bureau, 67 per cent. Pope county
shows an increase of 20 per cent., and
Madison 10 per cent. The heaviest de
crease is in Wabash county, viz: 02 -per
cent. Scott county held her own. This
is certainly a most extraordinary showing,
but it is ono in winch the whole country,
and especially the Northwest is quite as
directly involved as is tho apparently
flourishing and prosperous State iu which
Hie revival of business in ail its
branches and in a'.l parts of ihe country
has emphatically recalled attention to our
lack of facilities for disposing of our pro
ducts abroad. The exports of this country
are now steadily in excess of the imports;
but that excess is limited by the lack of
means to enlarge it. In a fw years our
trade abroad might be doubled if we had
the same me:.::s of carrying it on that
England has, and then we might- obtain
better prices s:id make a demand for labor
far greater than now exists, England has
such a hold upon the trade of South Ameri
ca and other good markets through govern
ment subsidies and other aid, that it is im
powiblo for private enterprise alone to
make any impression against it. Our mer
chants and manufacturer find no difficulty
in selling their goods in competition with
England wherever they can find a means to
carry them direct and to do business on
eal terms. But4 as it is now, they have
to refuse sales in many countries because
the English monopolists, encouraged by
their government, have killed off American
competition, and made the establishment
ot anything like profitable relations im
possible. Without the intervention of our
government to avert this one-sided system,
it is likely that the trade of the U. S. abroad
will diminish instead of increase, and that
finally our merchants will have to depend
upon British agents, wholly for sales.
Muny public men who have heretofore i
discouraged government aid for such
enterprises as will extend our commerce,
have lately been discussing these tilings,
and an important movement is likely to
grow out of it. Last winter a project for a
steamship line to Brazil, under a liberal
postal contract, was defeated, because of an
unreasonable prejudice against subsidizing
private enterprise; but now all private in
terest has withdrawn .from the discus
sion, and it is hoped a liberal policy will
be adopted on a broad basis, so that not
only the trade in Brazil, but all other im
portant markets may be freely opened to
American competition. Senator Blaine and
many other statesmen are in favor of a
general policy to encourngo commerce,
similar to that which has given England
6U:;h an immense advantage in all parts of
t!ii world, and backed as his eftorts will be
by the leading Democrats of the North, the
outlook of the future, from a business ad
commercial point of view, is unite as en
couraging as'the most hopeful and sanguine
could wish for.

New Yoke, September 22th, 1870.
Tho volume of domestic exports iroin
this port was very largo this season, espec
ially m the line of breadstuff. Tho total
value of domestic export during thu month
of August past, was $30,893,205, or about
$7,000,000 greater than the highest amount
tho sumo month in any year since 1871, ex
cept 1878, when tho vulue of exports slight
ly exceeded the figures for last mouth, but
the trifling falling off iu value is necom
pained by a largo increaso in tho volume,
price-of many domestic good haviiig de
creased considerably sinco a year ago. The
CAIRO BULLEfTIN; THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 25, 1S79,
foreign demand forfiTain i very largo, ow
ing to the general failure of, tho .crop in
Europe. In thin country aiuiio crop aro
abundant, and'shipmont aro correspond
ingly heavy. It i believed that Europe
will taky nil our surplus breadstuff at fair
price. Statistics compiled at tho produce
exchange show that from January to tho
end of tho first week of September of each
year, tho export of whoat flour were 2,712,
055 barrels in' 1875, against l,720,035in
187S; exports of whoat, 88,957,544 bushels
in 1879, against 03,134,104 in 1878; and
exports of corn, 24,214,293 bushels in 1879
against 20,589,107 in 1878. Thcro i a fair
foreign demand for provisions, which have
been largely in request also in the Soufli and
Southeast. Tho supply of pork nnd kird is
greater in this country than it was last
year, wlulo In .buropo tno stock ot
lard is less, and hams and bacon aro about
a cent & pound less tlmn last year, And tno
shipments much greater. Tho export from
this port from January 1 to tho end of the
first week in September amounted to 375,
730,700 pounds, against 005,847,892 in the
corresponding period of 1878. A largo fall
and winter business in provision is expect
ed. A sudden riao has lately taken place
in tho butter and chceao market, and ship
ments arc now very active. The production
is much less this year tlmn Inst on account
of lower prices, nnd tho exports thus far
are not so great but with better prices.
The production will bo stimulated, nnd this
country will be able to supply a larger de
mand. A meeting ef the grain tradq produce
exchange has just been held to discuss tho
action of the Western Elevator association
at Buffalo in raising their rates on aud aflcr
September 22. One of the most influential
members suggested that tho New York
merchants hud only ono remedy where all
the elevator associations in Buffalo were
combined in close co-operation, and that j
was to build an elevator at Buffalo uJer
their own management. A resolution was
adopted that in veiw of the fact of active
competition of seaboard cities for the grain
trade of the West and of the promise given
the legislature of this Stato by the elevator
associations of Buffalo, Oswego aud New
York, the grain trade of New York protests
against the proposed advance in the eleva
tion at Buffalo on and after September 22
to more than double the present rates,
which rates they gave their word to main
tain as unwarranted and injudicious
lion. Richard T. Merrick, the well known
attorney of Washington, and one of the
counsel for Mr. Tildcn before the electoral
commission, has recently spent a day with
Mr. Tihlen and had a general talk with
him concerning the political situation.
Mr. Merrick says that he found him more
soVichious in regard to carrying Ohio than
over anything else iu political nnYirs, much
meire so than about a Democratic victory in
New York. He consider General Ewing's
success as almost vital to the Democracy,
and he was willing to do everything in his
power to contribute to it. lie urged Mr.
Merrick to proceed at once to Ohio and
enter upon campaign work there. He was
so anxious to have Ewing elected that he
did not wish to neglect anything, wnich
could contribute to that result. Mr. Tildcn
also expressed himself freely in regard to
the situr.tion'in New York. He felt con
fident that the earnest effort of tho Demo
cracy of the State to crush Tauftnany would
command the support of many independent
Republicans, lie felt sure that more of
this class would be drawn off by Kelly.
He regarded Tammany as having long been
before the people, the heaviest load New
York Democrats had ever carried, and ho
thinks if it can be beaten now, it Mill re
move tho only serious obstacle to Demo
cratic success in that state in 1880. From
the tenor of Mr. Merrick's conversation, it
is evident that Mr. Tilde-n considers the
question of his re-nominalion, by the next
Democratic convention as already settled in
his favor. It is also evident from the earn
est interest he expressed in On. Ewing's
success that the hard-money Democrats of
the East do not intend to make any trouble
with their western soft-money bretheni, on
account ot their financial heresies.
Mr. Dauiel Drew, the well-known finnii
tier aud railroad speculator died at his son's
house, No."3 East Forty-second street, New
York, about 10:43 o'clock Thursday night.
Ho had dined at the Grand Central Hotel
with a friend, and on returning homo com
plained of feeling unwell. He went to bed,
but got up and 9111c down to tho parlor
where he expired. Tim physician who was
sent for pronounced the cause of eleatli to
bo 1 an apopletie attack. Mr. Drew was
bom July 27, 1797. His career whs like
that of almost every other railway king"
who had prccccdod him, and like that of
many associates who did not have always
thej luck or prudence of a Vunderbilt.
There have been several years during which
he was both a pauper and 11 millionaire and
tho idol and the execration of the street.
Twelve years ago there began a series of
stock complications in Harlem, Erio and
Western railways into whic h ho was drawn,
finally impoverished tho veteran operator,
then turned of 70 years of nge. His daily
life' for several years was one ot struggle
am turmoil, and it finally ended in his
