tors, who say, as the editor ot the Peoria
Democrat says, that the echoes of Barks
dale's shot gun reverberated all over Ohio
and Iowa last Tuesday, and played havoc
with Democratic hopes. TVe are very much
given to the same conviction.
In due time, Gov. Blackbarn, of Ken
tucky, was to, expose and denounce the
slander, circulated " by responsible newspa
pers, to the effect that he is the identical
Blackburn who tried to infect the Northern
cities with small pox and yellow fever, by a
distribution of old clothing. The denial is
over-due, but Blackburn remains silent.
Charges so enormous as this, made by re
sponsible parties, cannot be treated with
"silent contempt.". Unless Gov. Blackburn
enters an emphatic denial, the great mass
of people will believe him guilty, and hold
Kentucky as disgraced in the person of her
An exchange says: It is a remarkable
fuct that though there are in this country
mountains of the finest iron ore in the world
and thousands of the most skilful workers
in iron, the iron plates for the war vessels
which are now being built fot the govern
ment at John Boach's shipyard at Chester,
Pa., were manufactured in England and
transported to this country in vessels flying
the British flag. Surely our national legis
lature must be short-sighted when they thus
by their acts give encouragement to English
industries at the expense of our own. The
Democratic party having control of both
houses of congress, the responsibility for
such a condition of affairs can no longer be
foisted upon Republican shoulders. Hayes
may interpose vetoes should reliet measures
be passed; but the Democracy owe it to the
country to try to remedy the evil. Until
the party's representatives do so, they can
not escape a large share of the responsibility.
PETERSONS' COUNTERFEIT DETEC
After an existence of twenty-one yeara
Petersons' Counterfeit Detector has become
Indispensable to the financial and commer
cial communities oi tho United States and
the Dominion ot Canada. For the ensuing
year it has increased its facilities for plac
ing before its readers the earliest intelli
gence concerning counterfeit U. 8. and na
tional bank notes and coins. The resump'
tion of specie payments has already given
an impetus to the nefarious work of makins
bogus silver and goldcoins. All the worthless
imitations of specie that have thus far ap
peared have been promptly noticed. In this
renewed department of its usefulness to the
business community, the Detector received
additional and diligent co-oporntion in all
the monetary centres of the country.
All of its miscellaneous well-cstablikhed
and approved features will be maintained
at a higher standard of excellence. The
lists of banks and bank officers, the semi
monthly reviews of the money market, and
stock tables, will to fuTmishwT with tiicc-Kl

OPPOSED TO THE NEW COUNTY
ROAD, AND WHY.
The Bulletin has succeeded, at the end
of repeated efforts, in getting tho pcoplo to
talk about the high-water road project, and
the tax proposition to be voted upon at the
election next month. It finds the liberal,
enterprising business men of the city, with
a very few exceptions, advocating the im
position of the proposed tax ; but it is
amazed to find a few, sensible men, so
warped by their hates and prejudices, ss
to oppose the whole project, because the
building of the road will benefit the lands
over which it may be constructed, and the
Cairo Property Trustees and Capt. Halli
day own a portion of those lands 1
We do not know that we can more forci
bly portray the absurdity and narrow mind
edness of such an objection, than by re
peating the catcahism to which such an
objector was subjected, yesterday evening,
by an intelligent and influential advocate
of the road aud the proposed tax to build
"It's a Taylor project," insisted the ob
jector. "All he wants is a levee around his

best and most feasible route for the
road that could .possibly be adopt

dentally, the embankment would serve as

of the Trustees' lands?"
Objector: "That's precisely what I object
Rond-man : "By building the third angle,
the Trustees would redeem from overflow

from overflow, would be leased out or sold
in small parcels, and would fiecomc the

The stranger coming into the city by rail,
instead of riding through a great flood o'l
water, or through an ugly tangled under

marshes would pass through cultivated

to such a change as that?"
Objector: "No, I don't; I should be glad
to see it biought about."
Road-man: "Would not such a change
contribute greatly to the health; somewhat
to the thrift of the city, and prove of im
measurable advantage in the work of re

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Correspondence of tbe Cairo Bulletin.
Washington, Oct. 19, 1879.
Of course tho great topic is tho result of
tho October elections, and every gathering
of men and women is stirred by it. There
can no longer bo a doubt that everybody is
astonished at the extent of the "Republi
can flood," as a prominent editor calls it.
Of course, there are Republicans who say,
i'l told you so!" But that docs not alter the
fact that they were not very outspoken be
fore the elections. The Democrats keep up
their courage wonderfully, and arc now
preparing to take off their coats for the
great national contest next year. "We
are just clearing the decks this
year," they say. "We are divided
on local and side issues. Next
year you will sec us in solid phalanx march-
gon to victory."' This is pluck, to say
the least, but I think there was one man
who didn't hold his head quite so high. I
refer to Speaker Randall. He came here
on Tuesday, and rumor says that he was so
confident of a victor' in Ohio that he came
here at the solicitation 'of trends
be ready for a serenade anl a
speech. He had nothing to say, but
is genial disposition kept the even tenor of
its way, and he talked glibly on all sorts of
other topics. Mr. Thurman's friends keep
up their courage wonderfully. They meet
the ill-concealed joy of the Tilden men with
a most steady assurance. "Thurman," they
say, isn't hurt a bit for 1SS0. He is the on
ly man who stands a ghost of a chance fur
carrying Ohio or any Northwestern State.
He ;s the strongest Democrat in the Senate,
and ho is a perfectly clean man." This
latter is aimed probably at Mr. Tilden.
What they say of Mr. Thurman is true, and
I believe the Republicans rejuice more at
his defeat than at any other event. He is a
formidable antagonist. His friends say be
sides that if the rule that a State's loss
shelves all Presidential candidates in its
borders, Mr. Tildes may suffer afttr the
coming election there. It is clear that so
far as Presidential candidacy is concerned,
these elections will settle nothing, because,
for example, if the Democrats lose New
York they will say it was because of Dem
ocratic divisions and not because of actual
I observ e that the Republicans are making
great claims relative to the next congress
to come in 1S61. Doubtless they will
make some gains of Representatives lrom a
re-appointment of the State in Ohio, and
the rate in Iowa shows that they will recap
ture the two Greenback districts in that
state, as well as at least one iu Maiue. But
beyond this of course they cannot yet go in
anything like definite terms. The specula
tions as to the senate are interesting. The
Republican calculator counts confidently on
gaining senators us follows : In New York
in place ot Kernan; in Connecticut, in place
ot Eaton; in Pennsylvania, in place of Wal
lace; in New Jersey, in place of Randolph
in Indiana, in place of McDonald, besides
the seat in Ohio now held by Thurmanf
This would be a gain of six; but they con
cede the loss of ofle in Mississippi, the seat
now held by Bruce, lcavinga net gain of five
by their calculation, which would make the
Republican Senators 38, or just one-half the
Senate. The Democrats would- have 37
"straight," but they will count David Davis
with them, and thus the Senate would be
tied. But I notice since the late elections
the Democrats make more talk than for
merly, about unseating Kellogg, o.f Louisi
ana, this winter, before the Republicans
have time to recruit, and this, again, would
give them a majority. The situation is very
interesting, but no party can congratulate
itself upon it.
A statement of the operations of the pat
ent office, during the last fiscal year, shows
that during the last twelve months, ended
June 30th last', 19,800 applications for pat
ents were received, 2,674 caveata were filed,
12,471 patents were, issued, and 1,537 trade
marks and labels were registered. There
were 828patent8 grated, but withheld for
payment of final fees. The total receipts
of the office were $703,140, being $154,405
in excess of its total expenditures,
A Wondkiifcl record. Myriads of so
called "specifics" and "cures" for Rheuma
tism have already been brought before the
public, and many of them have even been
endorsed by tho certificates of respectable
aud promineut citizens, who have derived
benefit from such preparations. There is
no tlcfubt that a great many of these "Lini
ments," "Oils," etc., so widely advertised
and freely rcccommended.for Rheumatism
and painful complaints of a similar nature,
have genuine merit, and will relieve certain
types of the complaints named; but when
Rheumatism, Neuralgia, and kindred dig.
cases have become chronic and threaten se
rious results, you may rest assured that they
will help but very little. Although
not recommended as "infallible," tho pecu
liar qualities of St. Jacobs Oil especially
adapt it to those cases which may be termed
"chronic" and which have previously with
stood nil known "specifics" at well si the
prescriptions of the best physicians.
Wo would 'mtmtion, as an cxampTe; the

matism for two years. After vainly using
all the best recommended remedies, ana
txiiausung mo skill ot the mobt experienced
physicians without even temporary roliot, it
required only two bottles of St. Jucobs Oil
to urea a permanent euro, Mr. C. Hanni,
a well-known citizen ot Youngstown, Ohio
secured for his wife, who for twelve years'
hud been a constant sufferer from Neural
gia iu tho head, tho servicies of tho ablest
physicians ot tho land, but they were un
able to do anything for her; half a bottle of
bt. Jacobs OH cured her. Mr. Wm. Rein
hart, Elmore, Wis., reports tho case of i
neighbor who for twenty-four years had
suffered so terribly with Rheumatism that,
at times, ho could hardly move around; a
few bottles of St. Jacobs Oil cured him.
"To cap tho climax," however. Mr. A
Neiger, of Taylorville, Pa., writes, that his
mother, who had been a continual sufferer
with Rheumatism for the past thirty tears.
used one bottle of St. Jacobs Oil and was
immediately relieved of all pain. These
arc results which truly deserve to be
brought to public notice; but they are not
exceptions, as will be seen by the numerous
other certificates from all parts of the
United States.. It should be the duty of
every one to call the attention of his suffer
ing friends and neighbors to this wonderful
efficacious preparation, especially as the low
price of 50 cents a bottle places it within
the reach of all persons, rich and poor.
D.Mattiiewson, of Nemaha Co.. Kan-

"We have used other preparations but none
so good. Our neighbors who neglect to
