A telegram received iu this city over
the Cairo and St. Louis railroad wires late
yesterday afternoon, announced that the
Chicago convention had organized by the
selection of ex-Attorney-General G. F.

man. A committee on credentials was
appointed, after which General Logan
made a motion to admit five hundred veter
ans of the late war, which was carried.
The convention then adjourned to meet
Mr. John R. Thomas does not seem to
be the choice of the mass of his party for
renomination by a large majority, in
Alexander, Jackson and one or two other
counties there is a general disposition
among Republicans to give Mr. Thomas an
opportunity to attend to his private attairs,
by selecting some one else to represent
them in congress. In Alexander and Jack
son counties the feeling against Thomas is
very bitter, and in the event of his renoiu
ination he Could not poll the strength of
his party by a long ways. J. T! is serving
his first and last term in congress.
The Paducah News says : "Wickliffe,
the newly chosen county seat ot Ballard,
will be the scene of a lively convention on
the 5th prox. On the day named the yeo
manry of Ballard will gather at the speci
fied place, as previously stated, to nominate
a ticket for the county offices to be filled at
the August election. As the convention is
generally understood to be a convention of
the Ballurdites who favored the removal of
the county seat, a lively and interesting
gathering is anticipated."

"We understand," says the Paducah
News, "the work of extending the Mobilu
and Ohio railroad from Columbus to East
Cairo will be commenced this week aud
pushed rapidly to completion. The exact
line of the road we do not know, but under-
stand the extension will pass Wickliffe, the
new county seat ot Ballard county, and
from thence to East Cairo will run along

Wo also understand that the Mississippi

A woman signing herself Kittie Mil
ler, this morning oilers a reward of ten dol
lars "for the arrest and conviction of the
thief who has been trying to enter my
liou?e at different times during tho last two
months." That there is any occasion for
such an oiler we don't know, and do not
believe, but do know that it is a novel way
of apprising the officers of the law that a
thief "has been trying to break Info my
house ut different times during the past
two months." Of course, th lucre Kittie
offers will, or at least should, dure the effect
ofawakeuing the officer of tho law to tho
proper discharge of their duties, nud of
ridding the dam-sell (this is a mistake of
the printer) of tho thief she complains.
There is a disposition ou the part of a
few Democrats in this city to force tho
convention, to be held in the court house
on Friday, to nominate a full county ticket
A little inquiry on the part of thoso inter
ested has brought to tho surface the fact
that the desire for the nomination of a
county ticket is not by any means a movo
in the interest of the party; bu( on tho con
trary, it is a movo in the interest of several
gentlemen who are not only not
Democrats, but who are the strong
est kind of Republicans; and
who believe that it tho Democrats can
be induced to commit so foolish an act as
the nomiuation of a straight ticket, their
own chances of election will be greatly en
hanced. These seekers after official places
are backed by a gang of fellows, who,
professing to bo Democrats, would sacrifice
and sell out the party in order to accom
plish their own selfish ends. These men
we say arc working in the interest of a
couple of Republicans who are candidates
for county offices, and if they attempt the
nomination of a county ticket should be
unceremoniously sat down upon.
While we have not talked with Mr.
Linegaron the subject of his-candidacy for
the state senate, we understand that if his
friends sec fit to present his name to the
convention, and the nomiuation is tendered
him, he will accept. While wo do not
wish to be understood as opposing Judge
Lemma, tor if ho is the nominee of the
convention ho will have no stronger or
more ardent supporter than The Bclletin,
we do assert that our first choice is Mr.
Linegar; first, because he is a Cairo man :
second, because Alexander county litis a9
good a claim to the senatorship as either of
other counties composing tlio district; ami
third because we believe him to be pecu
liarly well qualified for a seat in the senate.
He is a lawyer of acknowledged ability; a
deep thinker, and understands perfectly the
necessary changes in many of our existing
laws. In the senate he would soon come to
the tront as a leader, and would reflect
credit upon his constituents. We are for
Mr. Linegar first, but if Judge Lemma, or
any other Democrat receives the nomina
tion, The Bulletin will give him a hearty
and willing support.

Dear Sin: I see in the report of the
council proceedings, by "the reporter who
represented The Bulletin, that said re
porter was reliably informed that Linegar's
coup d'etat meant the enforced nomination
of Dick Fitzgerald, as Mr. La Hue's suc
cessor." Why, sir; it can't mean any such thing.
"Dick" has never asked the mayor to nom
inate him; "Dick" has not asked any alder
man to vote for him; nor has he asked any
alderman or auy one else to ask the mayor
to nominate him. Then why not let
"Dick" aloue; he is not, and d.ies not wish
to be mixed up in the matter.

THE PRESIDENTIAL AND SEN ATOM AL
CAM PA KIN' DISCUSSED.
Wheat harvest is now coming on and the
report is that all red wheat is injured by
the rust. At this writing, the rain is com
ing down in floods and the wind blowing
almost a gale, so that it is quite probable
the standing wheat will be badly blown
down. We have had, in this vicinity, such
floods of rain, recently, that some farmers
are much discouraged. They say their
lands are badly washed in gullies, especially
their side hill laud. This should teach
them a lesson, and that is, that it don't pay
to cultivate such land In corn. As sun
shine always follows rain,' so do smiles
follow sadness, so we hope soon, to see the
season become more settled, and every
body looking cheerful again. '
As there is turmoil and strife in the
political world, may wu not expect to see
turmoil mid storms in tho clouds, Let lis
hope that after our candidates for president
uro placed before us, things will quiet down
both in the political and physical world.
As an individual, we always dread a presi
dential campaign, and wo never have, yet
seen ono como off but what we wished from
our inmost soul, that wo elected our presi
dent for eight years instead of for four.
Every fourth year our nation is ulinost
turned up-side down; our newly elected
man takes his seat, and Jint about tho time
he begins to learn his duty as president,
his time is up, and tiien tor a whole year
everything goes pell-mell. Wo can't see

way, and we do liopo that James Bauton,

Lemma as a candidate for state senator
from the Fiftieth district, consisting of
Jackson, Union and Alexander counties,
will be found under the head of announce
ments. . Tue large Democratic majority of
Union county, makes the district hopeles
ly Democratic, and consequently there wid
bo no Republican candidate, etc." The
quotation is from the Carbuda!e Observer,
edited by A. Ackertnau, Brother Acker-
man certainly was only jesting when he
thus wrote. In the Union county conven
tion we instructed our delegates t the sen
atorial convention, to vote for M. V. Us
scry, ot Union county. So Brother Acker-
man, if Ussery gets the nomination we will
show you that Uniou county is not so hope
lessly Democratic after all. M. V. Ussery
is now one of our county comuiisaiuners,
and it is conceded by all that he is one of
our ablest financiers. So Brother Acker-
man, if we get Ussery on the track, we
shall skin your Lemma just as decently as
Martin V. Vssery skins beeves. Don't joke
so Brother Ackerman, for assuredly
the Republicans will have a candidate for
the senate, and should it bo .Martin V.
Ussery, that large Democratic majority iu
Union county will be blowu !to "smith
ereens," and then you will see how hope
lessly Democratic the district is.
