Two strangers robbed another stranger
in one of our leveo saloons at about twelve
o'clock last night. An otlieer of the law

matters could be explained the robbers had
made their escape. The amount the
stranger lost was a trilling sum.

"Bayard,"in a communication publUhed
elsewhere, suggests States Attorney Win C.
Mulkey for Representative in tho legisla

he. He is in every sense deserving of the

This is a novel method to bring about the

Tho Democratic senatorial convention
of this district will meet at Murphysboro
on Thursday, July 8th, and it is now higl:
time that some of our good men advance

we have repeatedly said, Alexander county
is eutitled to tho representative and since
this district is surely Democratic there is
no excuse for the present backwardness of
our men. Unless souie of our men an
noutice themselves soon, Union county will

A number of our merchants have ol

suaaay evening, wnue staaJing iu
front of Tub Bulletin office, a gentleman
accosted us, saying, while he pointed to
lighted room in the third story of the cus
torn house building, that the Radicals were
holdiug a meeting. "How do you know '1
we asked lum. "Why, can't you sme!l
them?" said he. It is needless to siy that
wituouta reply or word ot warning, we
kicked that mail through the top of his
hut. He was not to be found in the city
yesterday, and the general supposition is
that he is still "upward bound."
A colored man named Albert Wilson
about two weeks ago stepped upon a nail,
the point of which entered the fleshy part
of the sole of his foot. He nejilected to
treat it properly and walked about atteud-
ng to his daily duties until last Friday,
when he was taken with the lockjaw. Dr,
Parker wa3 called, but too lute to render
the uufoitunate mau any assistance. He
died la'st night at about 8 o'clock, not hav

in destitute circumstances and petitions
were circulated last uiglit to obtain the

Yesterday morning while engaged in
writing one ot our usual spicy political
items, one of our old citizens rushed in up
on us and commenced relating a sad story.
One of our census enumerators, he said,
had found a little girl ten or twelve years
old who hud no name. He asked the
mother to let him christeu the little one.
She consented, and the unoffeusive aud de
fenseless little creature was christened
"Garfield." We were mute with astonish
ment and could find no words to express
our surprise until our informant had
left the office. At a late hour last
night we visited the child and found it
still living and doing us well as could be
expected under the circumstances and the
Although the Hibernian Fire company
is exerting itself in trying to make the cele
bration of the Fourth u uraud success, one
thing is apparently being overlooked by
the company. A celebration on the Fourth
without a speech or without even a read
ing of the declaration of independence,
would be no celebration at all. Some man
of iniluence, of learning and eloquence
should soar the American eagle on the oc
casion and wo know of no man who could
do this more acceptably than the Hon. J.
R. Cunningham. We; can nut speak fur
Mr. Cuuningham and can not say whether
or not he would accept au invitation to de
liver an address, but believe that it U the
duty of the conipauy to appoint a com
mittee to wnit upon him and thereupou it
will clearly be tin duty of Mr. Cuuning
ham to accept.
The new Democratic flag pole was
raised yesterday evening. Mr. Summer
well was the superintendent of the job, and
Mr. Walton Wright must be credited wltti
tho Instigation aud consummation of It.
Its upper Bcotion is painted red, while and
blue, and on the top bears the proud bird
of liberty, which does not deign to look
down upon tho insignificant polo
in the custom house yard
which strongly resembles a broom stick
planted in some back yard when, compared
with our magnificent pole. It is twenty
five feet highor than the custom houso
"thing;" is visible far up r down either of
tho rivers and especially when the rua
nificent flag adorns It, will present
glorious appearance. It is an ackuowl
edged fact that the longest pole strikes the
persimmons and since the persimmons are
within the reach of our pole there are but
few who are so rash as to affirm that we
will not be victorious.
George R. Weiidling, in one of his re
cent lectures, pays this tribute to the clergy
men : "The clergy constitute the most hu
mane and self-sacrificing class ot men to
day. I have been, in the last year, in near
ly every northern state from Maine to Ne
braska, and everywhere tho clery aro doing
most for humanity, not only in the way of
religious ministration, but I mean in caring
for the poor, the wretched, tho homeless,
the sick, tho weak and intemperate. They
are the men who are at the front in move
meats designed to alleviate human suffer
ing, working by sunlight and starjight ; four
fifths of them' half-paid, having poor fare,
poor libraries, poor homes and a portion of
every community prejudiced against them
The men I say who are doing this are the
same preachers whom Iugersoll would cast
out Robert Iugersoll may make pretty
speeches about humanity, but here is a class
of men whose hat neitlu'i he nor I am
worthy to hold."
We this morning publish a comuiuni
cation from "A True Democrat," whose
true name we do not know. "A True
Democrat" urges Hon. J. R. Cunningham
for the position of representative from this
senatorial district, and doubtless does so
for the best of reasons. There are those in
our midst who say that they can use Mr.
Cunningham like a telescope; open him,
see through him and then shut him, and
claim that he is a d d fool ou general
principles, but The Bulletin here and
now takes occasion to stamp such men as
vile slanderers, villains aud liars. They
are men who are known by our people to
be as stiallow as a rivulet, whose mouths
are as filthy as a sinkhole, filled with the
vilest refuse matter, and should satan cu
ter their bodies, his majesty would come
out a greater rascal than he went in. We
are young in years, and therefore, our de
nunciatory vocabulary is limited, but
were it otherwise, wo would bury Mr. Cun-
uiugham's enemies under such a torrent of
abuse as would forever prevent them from
again comiug to the surface. We desire
only to say, m conclusion, that Mr. C. bus
been a life-long Democrat, and being a
gentleman of much learning and force of
character, he deserves well at the hands of
the Democracy of Southern Illinois.
Speculation is the order of the day,
here as to whom the national Democratic
convention, in ses,iou at Cincinnati to-day,
will nominate for president and vice presi
dent. Seymour has written a letter in
which, in no uncertain language, he refuses
to permit his uame to be used in connection J
with the presidential nomination giving I
as one of his reasons that he is "not able to
do the duties of the office."
During the ' last few days,
aud especially since the publication
of Seymour's letter, a boom has been raised
for our nominee for governor, Lyman Trum
bull, who would certainly make as strong
a candidate as any that could be placed be
fore the people for their favors. Iu addi
tion to his civic and military services, ex
Gov. Palmer is one of the ablest lawyers i
llmois. lie has been a careful, laborious
student of the science of government. He
is grounded in fundamental principles. He
is a conscientious believer in the rights of
the people. While devoted to the whole
nion, in the service of which he made a
icroic record, he is a firm adherent of the
constitutional rights and diguity of the
states, as provided by the chart of the
fathers. He would make a president whose
lininistration would be as jealous of the
iberties ot Louisiana as of those of Illi
nois, aud as true to the reserved powers of
tho respective states, as to the delegated
authority of the federal governmeut. Be-
ides him, however, many other good men,
such as Buyard, Thurniun, Morrison, Field,
Jewett aud Payne are mentioned for the
position, who are all men of greater or less
.ositive strength. But whoever the choice

of the convention may be, the Democrats

to club his wife. Upon being released
aud knowing his intcution, the wotuaa
weut into the front room of
the house, and securing Ilaudcamn's
pistol, which she found under his pillow
confronted him with it when he came into
the house again. Seeing that she had tho
pistol he cursed her, saying, "shoot g J
d n you, shoot." He repeated this
several times pointing to his breast while
he said 90, and before he knew it she did
shoot the force with which the bullet
struck him prostrating him on the Moor
II2 no sooner recovered from his surprise
than he set up a cry that ho,was shot, etc.
whereupon a crowd commenced gathering
about the house. Doctors Sullivan ami
Carter wero soon ou hand' and commenced
probing for the bullet, and while
engaged in this. Mrs. Huileauin was
taken to the couuty jail by SheriJ Hodges.
and Constable Wooten.
Xo soonr-r did HanJcamp see the officers
take his wife in charge than he commenced
denying the woman's guilt, and said that
the shooting hvl been accidental. He told
one man that the nistol had been cocked
by becoming entangled in the bedclothes
and another that it had slipped from his
pillow and was discharged by falling upon
the floor. But. of course, these stori.-a of
his are foundatiouless as will ppear when
the evidence in the case is heurl.
Although the bullet was not found, the
doctors regarded the wound as by uo
means dungerous and believe that there is
no real necessity for removing the same.

our best and most avuilable men should be

calls that came to him, and not only been
a Democrat at that time, but has always
been one, and I feel, if we want this county
carried for John H. Oberly, we must work
for it and have men that can and will work
for the entire Democratic ticket through
out the land, and my voice, as a Democrat,
is for J. II. C. for representative of this sea
ntorial district, and our delegates should
go for him in the convention at Murphys

permitted to participate in their fishing
fetes and recherche 1 recreations. There
have been numerous applications for mem
bership of late, but have been rejected for
the reason that the club is now sufficiently
large in numbers. On the above occasion
a very interesting programme has been
agreed upon, with Dr. Jocelyn as master of
ceremonies. The declaration of indepen

Touch the waters, murmur softly,
Bright they sparkle 'ueath thy feet.
Oh, from spring of brightness rising,
The buried darlings meet !
Their fair arms touch together
Like their lips of crimson sweet.
All ufiow, in midnight beauty,
O'er the baby shoulders bare,
All aglow with golden glory
Looks the other's waving hair.
Clasp close, clasp close together,
Ere ye lose the forms ye wear.
Caress, caress yo fondly,
twin iirothers ot the past,
One long sad kiss ot parting,
i'erhaps twill be thy last
Perchance no more thy spirits
Shall meet in mortal cast. '
Alas! the one who wakens
Thee from thy crystal spring
Hath he uo other motive
Than to feel thy white urrus dim
Doth wake thee unto rapture,
Back to death's hell to fling!
'Tis o'er, 'tis down forever,
And the springs are nt thy feet.
The, warm white arms have vanished,
And the lips of crimson sweet.
The dark hair aud tho golden
No more together meet.
Ah, yes, the springs still sparkle,
And thou art at their brink
The lips of some lono stranger,
From its cooling wealth may drink,
Yet, though he may touch tho waters,
He can not find tho link.
Oh! murmur not magician,
Break not tho dreamers' rest.
Tell the stranger not thy magic,
Keep tho secret In thy breast
He will think 'tis but the waters,
Let him think for it is best.
