cd that Mr. Robinson performs all he

entire surrounding country, should turn out
and give him an overture.
The names of five Republicans were
yesterday mentioned to us who, after hav
ing listened to Hon. D. T. Lmegar's speech
night betore last, had declared that they
would vote for Hancock and English. The
conclusion these gentlemen came to is
greatly to their credit and it is the conclu

hearing the merits of the men of both par

Mr. Thomas Winter having been dis

business at the time he expected, but will

The Sun of last night says that "Mr.
A. II. Irvin is at home again, looking quite
well, nnd getting ready to enter the canvass
in earnest." So far as Mr. Irviu's being in
the city and looking quite well is con
cerned our neighbor is correct, but wc very
much doubt whether or not Mr. Irvin has
decided to enter the field as a candidate
for any office. It is true that it was ru
mored that he would make the race for the
circuit clerkship, but whether this rumor
was founded upon facts is, in our opinion
There were but two cases before Jus

The construction of sewers in this city
has become quite general of late nnd since
this is the right step in the interest of

We have been asked whether or not
the Sun favored tho llou. Justus Cunning
ham as a candidate for the lower house in
the general Hscinhy. The Sun has never
mentioned Mr. Cunningham's name in
connection with the office, but since silence
gives consent, we conclude that. Mr. Davis
would not be behind in supporting Mr. ('.
should he receive tho nomination at Mur
physboro. This b.-ing the case Mr. Davis
ought to be ashamed of himself, since, be
ing a Republican, ho would be in honor ,
bound to support Mr. Black.
A few days ago wo mentioned that the
final report of the census enumerators
would surprise some ot our people, sioco It
would show our population to be less than

zens to express doubts with regard to tho
thoroughness with which the work of taking
the census is being done, but beforo judg.
mg whether or not this is so, wo had better
wait until the report is mado and tho re
sult of their work announced. We've got
a good round population here, and wo
hope the enumerators will show it, but if
they don't, they haven't dono their duty.
If the meeting at the Reform hall last
night was nn indication of the feeling for
temperance in this city, the Reform club
an Woman's Christian Temperance Union
have no reason to feel discouraged, lor in
point of numbers and enthusiasm it was an
undoubted success. Dr. Duuning presided
and the expected speaker from Paducah not
having arrived, Messrs. P. W. Barclay,
Rev. Whitaker, Capt. Williams aBd Geo.
S. Fisher made very interesting and point

savs that tho nroceedimrs from heHnninrr

Mayor Ihistlewood commenced the read
ing of his veto message, relating to the or

the licensing of saloons, but, for a sufficient
reason, he did not read the entire message,
but withdrew it until the next regular
meeting. The new ordinance was drawn
tip at tlie request of all the saloonkeepers
of the city, aud reduces the yearly license
from two hundred dollars to one
hundred and fifty dollars, and fixes the
license for half a year, or less, at one hun

-Our mention of Judge Bird for the
office of states attorney yesterday, was re-
ceived with considerable favor by his mi-
merous colored friends. It was the general
opinion of those with whom we had a talk,
that Mr. Rird was entitled to komktiii.no: at
the hands of the party for the long years
of faithful services he had rendered, and it
was suggested to us by these same colored
gentlcmen.that possibly Mr. Bird would ac
cept the nomination for the circuit clerkship.
If a Republican is to fill tho office, it is a
matter of no great concern to us whether
Mr. Reeve or Judge Rird fills it, since one
is as competent as the other. Hut to the
impartial mind- to a man up a tree it
would appear that the Judge Hhotild have
,o preference for the place, and this for
several reasons. The party has already
one much lor Mr. Reeve, while he has
me nothing for it.
It has kept him in a
lucrative office for tour years in
of the duties of which
was not forced to "eat his
.read in tlie sweat of Ids brow."
Of course, during these four yean ho Ins,
like everybody elso who has ever filled the
office, discharged its duties iu an accept-
able manner, but this is hardly a reason
why. like Oliver Twist, ho should now be
asking for more." Iu fact, if there is any
reason at till why ho should ask to occupy
tho office for eiglit years, we are ignorant
of it. But it may bo said and doubtless,
well be said by the white Republicans
that even should the Judgj bij nominated

means anything, that "the time for colored
men to hold office has not yet come!" One
thing is clear to our mind and that is that
so long as his party refuses to nominate
him, the Judge will not be very apt to be
elected to any office within its gift.
Now that summer is really here, resi
dents of crowded cities and towns cannot
be too careful as to their diet and personal
habits. The danger from sunstroke or ex
haustion is not very great for people iu or
dinary health, but any phyMcian will in
dorse the statement that too great can: can
not bp exercised to ward oil' those diseases
which inevitably follow imprudence during
the heated term. Too many persons ob
serve the same rules of bvam in the
dog days that they do in the bracing
atmosphere of fall and winter, and, as a
rule, they pay dearly for their imprudence.
Even iu the matter of clothing but little
care is take to provide against sudden
changes of temperature, or during periods
of intense heat to reduce the temperature
of the bedy. Many persons also expose
themselves to the sun in the most reckless
manner, while others are equality impru

THE COMING CROPS'.
THEY AllE IN A I'ltOMISINO CONDITION WITH
SCAItCKLV A.N EXCKITIOS.
The report of the Illinois state board of
agriculture, which has just been issued, is
a most flattering one, ami the farmers have
every reason to feel proud of it. Iu refer
ring to the season, it says : The season of
1880 has been exceptionally favorably for
plowing, planting, and the cultivation of
crops, as well as the most satisfactory re-
suits attending the breeding and feeding of
live stock. The exceptions in the way of
drouth, excessive rains, injury from insects
or diseases umong farm animals are uiiiisu
My rare nnd confined to narrow limits, and
the loss therefrom will be comparatively
small in the localities where reported. The
crops ure m promising condition with
scarcely an exception, nnd seasonable
weather until the liny nnd grain crops are
harvested will ensure crops much above the
average, both in quality and opiantity.
Alexander county gives a pretty fair
showing, as the following will show: The
com acreage is about thy same as last sea
son; the condition is nearly Ui to an aver
ago; the growth has been backward, but
the crop is now growing rapidly. Winter
wheat is much above an average in condi
tion; heads well filled with large plump
terry. The oat crop will be less than last
year, owing to the limited area sown; the
prospects are encouraging for nn average
yield per aero. Cotton is nearly up to an
average in condition; about tho same acre
age as last year. Rye promises nn average
crop. j.ess lush and more sweet potatoes
planted than last year; the potatoo crop is
not up to on average in condition. Mead-
owsand pastures are looking well, nnd the
prospect is good for an average crop of hay
and an abundance of pnstorage. Sorghum
cano is nearly up to an uverago in condi-
tlon; the area about tho same as last sea-
son. There will bo over three-fourths of
an average crop of apples and plums;
about two-thirds of a croo of neachos: one-
fourth of a crop of pears; an average crop
of cherries, cranes, strawberries, blackbcr-
rie9. trooseberriei and currants.

VVU. OF NKWS POLITICAL AXO I'KU
Donoola, Ills., June 21, lo.
Last week, Mr. Stuns, with his main
moth star company of theatrical perform
ers, struck Dongoln, mid f r several nights,
we had splendid performances on the
stage. The order of the week, was laugh
and grow fat. Their plays were first-c!:i-s
and we can but wish them sncco.-s
wherever they go.
Now, wiulr; we do uot expect to write for
Tiik Bn.i.ETiN, politically, we hope the
kind editor will not think it out of place,
to let us ppcik a favorable word for our
man, M. V. Ussery. Ackerman, of the
Carboiidale Observers awfully wrapped up
in Mr. Lemma, for our senator, and he
thinks it useless fur the Republicans to put
out a man in the Fiftieth district .
He thinks the district hopelessly Demo
cratie on account tf the large majority i:;
Union county. We have informed Mr.
Ackerman, that Ussery, if he gets the nom
ination, will knock that ,100 majority, in
Union county, right end ways. While we
doubt not that Mr. Lemma, is a good man,
we cannot concede that he can come in the
same field with Mr. Ussery, as a financier.
So we wish to urge it on our Republican
brethren, to give us M. V. Ussery.
The hum of the thresher is agiu heard
in our vicinity, and we are able to report
the new crop of wheat just tplendid.
As Dongola is called the '-Onion Town"
of Southern Illinois, we are also able to re
port that crop trood, and L. T.
Bonacina is buying and fending
them to Chicago, by the thousands of
bushels, the revenue, thereupon, running
up iuto the thousands of dollars.
Reader, if yu want to get rich, come into
the vicinity ot D.mgola, and buy a few
acres of our rich soil and go to work und
the thing is soon accomplished.
Our fit man's house has got well of the
big head, and he now makes weekly trips
to Cairo to sell the citizeus the products of
Union county soil. He is the largest man
engaged in hauling produce to Cairo and
peddling it out on the streets. So, yuy
Cairoites, when you sec him enter your
city, go to him at once, for he once owned
a hatchet, and of course he cannot, nay
will not, tell you a lie.
Our old friend K. Cuhl has moved
back to D.mgola and taken his
old mill in hands. So look
out soon iur some mighty fine
flour. He never found the man that sold
