Geneiial Hawley, who has just resigned
his position as assistant secretary ot the
treasury, 19 now at home. No ieels confi
dent of his nomination for governor of Illi
nois by the Republicans, and we are not
disposed to deny that he i9 fur ahead of all
competitors. The general is a very popular
man personally, and it is supposed can re
ceive a vote larger than belongs strictly to
the Republican party.
The clause in the appropriation biil re
lating to federal election officers does not
appear to fully satisfy either party, and a
strong effort will be made to defeat it in the
senate. The Republicans ridicule Garfield
u good deal for having, as they say, stepped
into the trap prepared for him by the Dem
ocrats, and endorsing the clause. He
finally retreated but not in time to save
himself from much annoying criticism.
(lENEitAL Grant's friends are more and
more nervous at the attitude of Washburn
in the presidential tight. Washburn has
declared himself for Grant and not for
himself. "Hut,'' say these Grant meu,
"everybody knows that Washburn never
was for anybody but himself. What he
is up to is to cut Grant's throat, and gobble
up the spoils, and we don't want nny of
Washburn." The result is likely to be a bit
ter quarrel between the Grant and Wash
A urono effort, originating on the Dem
ocratic side of congress, is being made to
compel railroad companies holding grants
of public lands, to surrender to the govern
ment every acre of such lands thut has not
been earned by a full compliance with the
conditions of the grant. Under a vigor
ously entorced law, compelling such a sur-'
render, it is believed that the government
will recover more than seventy-five millions
of acres of what are now held as railroad
lands. The measure seems to be rather a
popular one with the masses.
CoNsiDKitA HLK excitement prevails in the
neighboring town of Golcouda, on account
of the shooting of one Henry Williams by
a deputy town marshal named Jack Burk
It is stated thut the marshal Alexander was
in the act of arresting Williams who resist
od and attempted to escape. Burk, al'ler
commanding the fugitive to stop, tired upon
him, the ball taking effect in his head, in
dicting a serious wouud. The Democrat,
3d alluding to the u flair, deprecates the tct
M the unnecessary shooting of an unarmed
man, and declares that it will greatly in
tensify the feelings of hostility between the
people of the town and country already
aggravated to a lamentable degree.
Don Camkkon is said to have received
another &touishcr in the result of the
Rhode Island Republican convention,
which selected a solid Bluine delegation to
Chicago. He has loudly declared that
Blaluo would not have the entire delega
tion train any state except Maine, and this
action of Little Rhody rather upsets his
calculations. The newt lrom other New
England states is equally discouraging to
him. It hua been noticed lately, by the
way, that he has been going to Senator
Blaine, a good deal, and it is naturally sur
mised that he is making .ready to abandon
the third term boom for whatever shall
promise success. Blaine's friends are highly
elated over these things.
History is now doing what tlio veno
mous toncues nnd pens of unscrupulous
politicians so long refused to do vindica
ting the military career of General McClel
lan. The careful and intelligent historian,
George Ticknor Curtis, now comes to the
front in the North American Review, and
declares that every move made by the Gen
eral, up to the receipt of llallcck's order to
advance, had received the entire approval
of President Lincoln, who at all times en
tertained the highest respect and admira
tion for McClcllan's military genius. The
order to advance was the result of political
pressure which the president was unable to
resist. It was intended to blast McClcl
lan's presidential prospects, and 'in the
achievement of thatend.the lives of twenty
thousand men were held as nothing.
The Democratic state central committee
urges the Democracy of Illinois to proceed
at once to a thorough and compact organi
zation of its forces in all the counties,
townships and school districts in the state,
and that each club or organization put it
self in immediate correspondence with the
state central committee's officers. We com
mend this suggestion to the Democracy of
Southern Illiuois, where Democrats seem
to have no unity of purpose in any direction
that promises good results to the party;
and especially do we commend it to the
attention of the Democrats of the Eigh
teenth congressional district. Organization
here, according to the central committee's
suggestions, will insure the election of a
Democratic congressman next fall, and
the displacement of the man Thomas, who
has shown himself worse than a cypher in
our national assembly, and whose conspic
uous lack of ability to comprehend his own
weakness and unworthiness, actually re
flects upon the intelligence of our people.
As was said of General W. B. Anderson, so
say we of Thomas : ''one of Josh Allen's big
ideas would burst his head into a thousand
THE MAN FOR THE EMERGENCY.
When, some weeks since, we announced
as our first choice for the Democratic nomi
nation for President, the nam of Hon.
William R. Morrison, we drew upon our
selves the stingless sneers of some of our
small fry contemporaries, whose line oi
vision was like that of a drill-sergeant, so
elevated that nothing was visible within
blauk range. The comments of the great
metropolitan journals, the Washington dis
patches and correspondence, nnd the inter
views with distinguished political leaders,
since then published, all show that we but
voiced a strong public sentiment, which
needed unly expression td show its potency.
All this, whilst very flattering to Col.
Morrison, means more than a mere personal
compliment. His personal character and
public record are not only open to
examination but iuvite scrutiny, and
the more thorough such examination is, the
more thorough is respect for the man, and
confidence in his adaptabilty to the needs
of the hour, established.
His record establishes his fitness to inves
tigate fraud and his instinctive detection of
it under whatever specious preten-e it is
covered. He has shown himself a jealous
guardian, not only of the peoples' money,
but what is of more moment, their rights
and liberty. His cireer has been excep
tionally free from the enmities and jeal
ousies usually provoked by success, and
those who formerly opposed hiin on par
tisan grounds, respect him, acknowledge his
ability and incorruptibility to an extent
mucn greater than those arc generally ac
knowledged by political enemies.
As citizen, soldier and public servant,
whether in the "post of honor or the private
station" his fidelity, eminent capacity and
unimpeachable integrity have always been
manifest. His modesty would have forbid
den a suggestion lrom himself that there
are either fitness or propriety in his being
brought berore the public. This very mod
esty is one of his best qualifications. He
has nobody to reward for favors received
and none to punish for their negligence.
If the convention shall , be able
tons" to the dignity of the occasion and
can distinguish between real popular wish
aud an employed claque by placing Col.
Morrison nt the head of the ticket, we uro
satisfied he w,mU tarry not only the states
now regarded as doubtful, but would re
de 'in his own state and place it where it
belongs, in the file of Democratic states.
SOME OF T1IK CONSEQUENCES.
One ot Tuk Bui.u.tin'k delayed London
letters contains tile following pathetic
word-picture of scenes in impoverished Ire
land. No ouc can contemplate it without
yielding to a touch of genuine sympathy
for tho stricken portion of llibernia's peo
CAIRO BUIJKTIWi FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH
"It was my fortune," writes our corres
pondent, "1o travel from Wcstport east
wards by a train that picked up at nearly
every station in Mayo county a batch of
emigrants just startiug for America. The
experience was a sad one in a double aspect.
Looking nt tho stalwart lads and
lassies who crowded into the
carriages, and at the old people and young
children, who had come to seo tho last of
them, it appeared as though the country
were losing tho flower of its population.
Thu "dead past" and the "shadowy future"
to use Emerson's terms remained, the
living present, went away. It is surely
hard that there should be need for this, and
the hardship seemed greater than ever in
hearing of the weeping and wailings that
went on at every station and were only shut
out by the roar and rattle of the departing
train. He who has never witnessed such a
scene, or watched the start of an emigrant
tender from Queenstown pier, can
have but a faint notion ol the intense emo
tionalism and passionate affection of the
Irish nature. Anglo-American feeling may
be as keen, and Anglo-American lovo as
tender and true; but the expression of both
is so restrained that we are utterly unable
to comprehend the manner of this emotion
al race across the Atlantic this, by the
way is only one form of our inability to
comprehend them. Surely the road trav
eled by my emigrant train was to all its
passengers a via dolorosa studded with
"stations of the cross." On every platform
the scenes were agonizing. Whole
families gathered around its departing
members, and could scarcely be made to
give them up to the carriage whose open
doors yawned to receive them. Boys and
girls and little children wept abundantly,
women filled the air with their cries, pas
sionately beating their hands together the
while, and, worst of all, many an old father,
after looking his last upon his son, would
utterly break down, turn his face to the
hard wall, and g.ve way to sobs that shook
him like a leaf. In the midst of this the
emigrants did their best to smile through
tears; and, after the train had sped
away, they waved hats and handkerchiefs
to friends, who running by the side of the
line, kept the carriage as long as possible
in sight. Watching the scene lrm the
window of my compartment was a gentle
man who had before been expressing a
wish that he could clear of its inhabitants
an island that belonged to him, so tl.at it
might be turned into a sheep-walk and its
rental trebled. His comment upon the
via dolorosa was: "Bring a gallon of
whisky and they would soon stop their
cries." The words seemed to give me a
glimpse of tho "great gulf fixed." and hard
indeed to bridge, so that their m'ght be
fellowship and sympathy between the op
"Oi.n Rr.uAni.E." There are many re
puted remedies for that very prevalent dis
ease, Chronic Nasal Catarrh, but none
which have given general satisfaction and
becom acknowledged standard preparations
except Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. It con
tinues to enjoy an unprecedented popular
ity. This reputation has been earned
through the permanent cures which it hits
wrought, having proved itself a specific in
the worst forms of the disease. In fact so
