IT is said that Sen-tor Edmunds lias

with reason expects to have a larger part of

Blaine appears to tie obtaining a larger fol

There seem to be some grounds for the
talk that has prevailed here for tho last few
days, to the effect that several Democratic
senators, including Hampton, Butler, Ten
dleton, Ransom and Davis, will vote
against unseating Senator Kellogg, of Lou
isiana. This explains the delay in the
case, which was unaccountable before, as
Senator Hill, ofGeorgia, who has it in
charge, has said that it should be forced to
an issue without delay. If this is tho pro
gramme, it will excite tho displeasure of
Hill and other radical Democrats, who are
in favor of every measure possible to re
duce the chances of Republican restoration
in the senate. But the conservative Demo
crats, including the Tildcn men, are utter
mined, it appears, that this session shall
give no chance of complaint to the country.
"WHY WAS IT DONE?
Quite a number of our Democratic
friends arc disposed to criticisewith much
severity, the want of sagacity displayed by
those other Democrats who participated in
tho reception and entertainment of General
Grant in Cairo. These carping gentlemen
profess to 6ce in these public demonstra
tions, that ot which others appear to bo ob
livious, viz: that underlying all such ebuli-
tions ot popular admiration for Grant there
is a deep purpose on the part of Grant Re
publicans to make "cats-paws'' of Demo
crats in the work of pulling the presiden
tial chestnut out of the fire of tuture uncer
tainty. "All these popular outbursts," in
sist the same cautious and far-sighted fel
lows, "aro inspired by Grant's henchmen
and wire-pullers; and while the ostensible
object is to give the people a sight of the
"Great American warrior," the ulteri
or purpose is to intensify the "boom"
that is intended to carry him
into the Republican nomination for the presi
dency. If this be not so," ask our suspicu
ous and disgusted Democratic friends,
why were the swingings-about of the Gen
eral, with their accompanying tumult and
uproar, delayed until tho very eve of the
national convention that is to name the Re
publican nominee lor the presidoncy ?"
It is to be confessed that Democrats who
argue thus do not build without tho sem
blance, at least, of a foundation; but we are
disposed to insist that the affair in Cairo
had no political significance whatever.
It was no more a "boom" for Grant at Chi
cago, than for Grant at Cincinnati. The
most active and conspicuous participants
were prominent Democruts, whose intelli
gence and forecast are certainly equal to
the intelligence and forecast of those other
Democrats who now find themselves in tho
complaining mood. Tho idea that quite all
our leading Democrats were "cheated" into
a participation in a demonstration that
had for its moving cause the
advancement ot Republican aims, is nn
idea that every stage of tho demonstra
tion contradicted. General Grant was in
vitcd to Cairo because of his distinguished
military services; he was entertained as a
great Boldier, was welcomed as bucIi, and of
the three or four thousand Republicans
then here, we do not believe thero wero a
half dozen who did not regard tho whole
affair as purely non-political as an alf.iir
111 which it waH tho duty, as wo know it
was the pleasure, of Democrats as well as
Republicans, to participate. Wo had been
boors, indeed, had wo refused to partici
pate; and, iu our opinion, no fact connect
ed with tho demonstration reflects more
credit upon tho Democrats of Cairo and the
surrounding country, than tho active and
full-handed part they played in tho Gen
eral's reception and entertainment, We
honored him, not as a Republican, but, im
was well remarked by Judge Green, as a uinn
whose name must, for all tho ages to couie,
be intimately associated with the union of

MEN, WOMEN AND BOOKS.
The Honorable Geo. II. Harlow, secre
tary of state, has kindly remembered the
Public Library of Cairo, by sending it six
volumes of the reports ot tho general as
sembly of Illinois, for 1879, and the house
journal, and state journal of Illinois, for
the same year.
Mrs. E. II. Babbitt has been appointed
tho financial agent of the state industrial

different parts of tho state in the interest
of the school.
At tho entertainment to be given at the
Athencum on the 29th of April by the la
dies of the Library association, for the
benefit of the library, some very
beautiful tableaux will be presented in
which many of our prominent society
young people will take part.
The following new books were received
last week at the library, snd given out yes
day afternoon : A Fool's Errand, by one
of the Fools; Confidence, by Henry James;
Hope Mills, oy Miss Douglass; My Desire,
by Mrs. Warren; Scaled Orders, by Miss
Phelps; Young Jo., by Trowbridge; His
Majesty Myself, one of the no name series,
and Sunshine and Storm in the East, by
Mrs. Brassey. These are all fresh and val
uable works, the latter being a beautiful
and costly volume handsomely embellished .
Belle J. Easton, ot Southampton, Ills.
writes to Miss West, of Galesburg, the fol
lowing sensible words which are to be
found in the Social Science Journal for
April: "I cannot help thinking-that our
public schools would be greatly benefitted
could every one of them have a small
repository in which to place specimens, and
a teacher possessing enough enthusiasm in
the matter to get tho children to aid in
making collections. It would help greatly
in the study of natural history, something
in which our young people and many of
our teachers are lamentably deficient.
They are constantly surrounded by the
wonderful iu nature without observing it."

An amendment to a Bchool bill authoriz
ing the election of women to the Cincinnati
school board was recently proposed in the
Ohio legislature "as a joke." The senate
in merry mood adapted it. The
house not being so funny at the time, ob
jected, and the result was that the senate
retreted from its position and the door of
the school board was shut on women again.

domestic life is purer than in tho olden

That is all gone by. Woman is now asso
ciated in man's mind with the church, with
charity, with literature; and though she is
yet looked upon as too merely a minister to
man's comfort, that too will pass away in
time. Again, it is beginning to be believed
that man should bo brought up to the same
standard ot morals as woman. The old
idea that woman is the keeper of her own
virtuo and man's also, is dying out. The
time is coming when man shall feel that he
is responsible for himself, and that he is in
duty bound to make every part ot himself
the servant of his will.
"Culture is as much a part of true relig

Among the studies which should be thor
oughly taught in every public school that
of the English language holds a high posi
tion. Every scholar Bhould be instructed
in the art of expressing his or her ideas in
a clear, concise, pure English, and no edu
cation should be considered at all satisfac
tory which fails ' to give the 'learner this
The end desired cannot bo fully secured
by merely teaching the rules of grammar.
These aro good as far as they go, and
should never be omitted. But they need to
be supplemented by a careful study of
good models, and by tho example of tho
teacher. If children are supplied with
books and papers which aro written in a
pure and elegant style, and which arc also
good in their moral influence, they will in
sensibly be drawn toward a correct style of
expression for their own thougnts. Then if
the teacher is always careful in the use of
language, and aids the scholar in the selecj
tion and study of models, his progress will
bo both certain aud rapid.
But it is not in the school alone that the
education of the child is secured. The
home influence will be strong cither for
good or evil. In some cases it reinforces
the lessons taught at school, but it too oft
en neutralizes them and renders them of
little practical value. If there is no refine
ment at home, if no care is taken to use
pure words and pronounce them correctly,
if the rules not only of grammar but of
.common propriety are constantly violated,
the child will certainly bo influenced there
by, and this influence will be both evil and
permanent. In ufter life the marks of
coarse surroundings and unclean speech,
and improper pronuciation will be upon
him, and will prove a great hindrance to
his progress, if not an impassable barrier to
success. By these means he will be shut
out from many portions of influence and
profit which in other respects lie is quali
fied to rill.
The ability to use pure English is of
great value to its possessor, whatever may
be his station in life, and should be sought
by every one whose mind is still in the
formative stage. Parents should insist up
on its being taught in school, and i-hould
see to it that home influence and home ex
ample are always in its favor.
None are too old to learn, but the young
can form good habits of speech much more
readily than the old can break off bad
ones. The methods are simple. Apply
the principles of erammar to common con
versation and to all the writing whieh is
performed. It will nut do to have one
vocabulary for ordinary use, aud another
aad much finer one for special occasions.
Such a method will prove impracticable.
If coarse words are ever used they will
sometimes be spoken almost uuconsciously.
In some moment of surprise or excitement
they will come out, and thus betray those
who do not wisli to use them in the pres
