The Argus of last night claims to have
one hundred and fifty more subscribers
than Tub Bulletin, but is very careful
not to say how many subscribers It has.
The only way its circulation caa bo discov

that the Argus is quoted as having
five huudred subscribers. Ihe same
directory quotes the circulation of The
Bulletin at one thousand and three hun
dred. We find these figures in U. P. Hub
bard's directory generally acknowledged
the most reliable directory ia the world

Mr. Potter, of the Argus, evidently
believes ia mud-throwing. Ia last
night's issue be loses his temper he has
but little else to lose and unmercifully
and without fear for the future world, plays
the part ot a little boy and calls us names.
It has been said of Abraham
Lincoln that his death came at an ap
portune moment for his fame. And it may
he said of II. F. Potter that he has already
lived too long by half for the convenience
of friendly biographers. Nevertheless the
newspaper historian must write Mr. Potter
down as a litrge man with some very small
parts, nis miad is strong, but not fine ; his
ambition is vaulting, but his methods at
taining it ruthless ; his selfishness is deep
rooted, but thinly covered with quicksand.
He h.is been little seen, hence greatly mag
nified. Neither dots lie desire to be view
ed, but prefers being felt. He has deserved
some praise, and received a great deal; he
has also had a fair share of censure, but
never did he deserve It as now. He may

In the United States district court, at
Springfield, the other day, Judge Edwardi.
made a motion to quash the indictment
against Henry Taylor for violating the civil
rights bill. The indictment charges that,
some time during last summer, the defen
dant was captain of the steamboat James
Fisk. Jr., plying between Puducah and
Cairo; that E. A. Mc Arthur, a colored man.
paid for a first-class passage from Metro
polis to Cairo; that on the boat he was not
allowed to eat at the same table with the
other passengers, which, the indictment al
leges, was iu violation of the civil rights
bill. The points upon which the indict
ment was quashed are that the
act of 1S75 is unconstitutional, and that de
fendant is not a citizen of the United States,
but a subject of Kngland. The point as to
whether the southern boundary of Illinois
ends at the edge ot the Ohio river or ex
tends to the centre of the stream was also in
volved. The points iu the cae were ably
argued by Judge Edwards, for defendant,
and District-Attorney Connolly, for the pro
secution. Judge Diainnioud sustained the
the motion, holding that tho defendant was
tn(t a citizen of the United States. He also
intimated that had the question been raised
he would have sustained the motion on the
ground that the south-eastern boundary of
Illinois extends only to the north-western
bank of the Ohio river, and that his court
has no jurisdiction over the river.

A FEW MORE WORDS
In yesterday's issue of The Bulletin wo
stated that tho Argus persistently shielded,'
as best it knew how, the criminal class of
our population. We did not make this state
ment without cause or without the necessa
ry proof, but sited instances ia support
thereof which are still fresh in tho memory
of every reading citiaen of Cairo, and there
fore, tho Argus dare not denv our charge,
since such denial would stamp its
editor as a man who has no re
gard for the truth and n respect for the
opinious ot his owa readers. We say the
Argus dare not deny our charge, nor djes
it deny it.
We charged it, firstly, with opposiug us
when we worked for the suppression of Bill
Scott's uotorious dance house, and what
does it say in reply to thia charge? Not
We charged it, secondly, with attempt
ing, iu vague terms,to throw discredit upon
our well-founded assertions that there ex
isted a 1 ring" ot men in this city who
made a practise ot recovering stolen prop
erty for a money consideration, but who
invariable failed to bring tho criminals to
justice; and what does the Argus say iu
reply to this charge? Not one word.
We charged it, thirdly, with approving
the decisioa of the court in the' Axley &
Wilsoa case, whea that firm was fined the
lowest possible fine for corrupting tho
youth of the city and whea nine-tenths of
our people condemned the decision as uot
commensurate with the enormity of the
crime. And what does the Argus say ia re
ply to this charge? Not oae word.
We charged it, fourthly, ia geueral
terms, with cowardice and with having
"assumed the contemptible position,
without cause or excuse, of an apologist
for all corrupt men, of whatever stripe,
whose misdeeds we have felt it our duty to
expose." Aud what does the Argus say ia
reply to this charge? Not oae word.
We charged, it fifth!y,aad do now repeat
the charge, that it is trying to shield a man,
whose past and present conduct has justi
fied the people of Cairo, ia pronouncing
him as corrupt, unworthy and aa
eaemy to the best interests
of the community. Aad what
does the Argus say ia reply to this charge ?
Not one word.
It attempts, however, by perverting the
facts ia the case to justify itself ia the
stand it has taken for Officer Sheehan, and
says that it has a communication from
Clem Young which states that "he never
went into the jail, and that Tiie Bulletln's
statement that he was put in there to get
the money from tiie wjmau is false."
We desire to say that we have a similar
comruuuicatioa from Mr. Clem Young, and
that while it may bel-'ue it cuts no figure
whatever in the case, it is absolutely of
no consequence whether Ckin was on the
inside of the jail or not, since he does
not deny, ia fact affirms, that he was at the
jail, aad on the outside of it when the
money was handed him. The Argus in a'
tempting to make much out of this, exposes
the weakness of its cause and makes itself
very ridiculous. But. having worked itself
into a tetnpor the editor of that journal
further says that "Tua Bulletin states an
other falsehood when it says that the money
was counted at the jail."
Tim fact Is that The Bulletin did not,
in all its remarks coaueraiag the affair,
either directly or indirectly, say that the
money was counted at THE .UIL. It did,
however, say, aad still affirms, that the
money was counted at the residence of Of
ficer Slieehan aad in the I'KESEnce of Clem
Young and the jailor. And we would have
the Argus distinctly understand that both
of these disinterested parties assert that
the amount was eighty -one dollars an 1 no
less. Clem Young lias voluntarily made a
statement to this effect iu the presence of the
jailor and Mr. John King and
told us, when he delivered to us the com
munication above referred to, that eighty-
one dollars was the amount which Officer
Sheehan had received from his hands.
Again the Argus says:
"Mr. Sheehan waited on Mr. Thieh.ckc
and asked him. in substance, his object in
misrepresenting him. as he has in this case
arid previously. Mr. Slieehan authorizes us
to give his reply, and says he will be quali
fied to it. It was this: "Well, (jive mo all
your items, like you do the Argus, and I'll
Intend you in my paper; now is that lor
Mr. Sheehan did speak to us concerning
his case once ia front ot Justice Olmsted's
office oa Eighth street, and about ten mi
nutes afterwards at the corner of Ninth
street and Commercial avenue but at neith
er time did it ever occur to us to make a
proposition of any kind, much less one ot
the abjve character to him. In fact, we
gave him no satisfaction only telling hii.i
that if he could prove his innocence it
would give us great pleasure
since we liad no disposition to wrongfully
injure any nun's character. It must strike
the reader a very silly that we should make
such a proposition to any man, much less
to a man ot Mr. Shochau's character, aud
we desire that that gentleman shall under
stand, and understand it very explicitly,
that we brand his statement as a willtul
falsehood, oucoctcd by him to throw dis
credit on our statemeut,
But says the Argus, "Mr. Shee
han says he will swear to the truth of his
statement at any time and is even anxious
to bo called upon." If wo were augry at
Mr. Sheehan we might say that we did not
question his readiness to swear to anything
iiugiouble uu short uotico, but we are uot
To tho Public: '
No matter what may be the excitements or finises that
may stir the stream of civil, military or political life to its
depths, nor how great may be the turmoil or how, deep an
interest the public mind may take in these causes, we be
lieve the people who make up this great Yankee nation, are
always ready to recognize any and everything that is to their
personal advantage. Believing this we unhesitatingly
direct the public to the fine stock of summer clothing that
w e are now ottering for sale at our ''Palace Clothing house."
Our assortment of Alpaca ami Mohair coats, in variety, quli
ty and price was never surpassed in Cairo. Our white vests
are low in price, superb in quality and all of the very latest
styles. Our stock of gents' furnishing goods, underwear

angry at the gentleman and therefore desist
from saying so. We will say, however,
that three of our best merchauts have au
thorized us to say that they will, at auy
time, when called upon, swear ia a court ot
justice that they would not believe Mr.
Sheehan under oath.
But enough. Ia conclusion we w ill say,
that, although a young man, we are fully
seusible of our defect aad short-comings
aad that we, ai much as auy other man, are
liable to unintentionally do injustice to
iaaoceat persons. But w hile this is so, n
man is justified in charging us with malici
ously injuring any man's character or say
ing aught about him that may refiect on
his good name, without the fullest investi
gation and the best cause.
We will not attempt to detract from the
just glory of the Argus, for wboae editor
aad publisher we enterUia none but
k;n l!y fetfliags, but we will be excused for
meeting their vanity with a lew facts con
cerning Tuk Bulletin.
Firstly: Since our advent in the editorial
chair the circulation of The Bulletin- has
Secondly: We have received and do re
ceive both verbally and in writing the com
plimeats of many ot our best women and
men because of the course we have ptr
sued. Thirdly: ' The Bulletin has maintained,
in the city and out of it, its reputatoa as the
leading journal of Southern Illinois aud as
the only one, in this portion of the state,
which dares to boldly expose and denounce
corruption and wrong wherever it may exist.
Fourthly: We can point to the files of
The Bulletin since it has been ia our
charge and prove that its course has been
consistently ia the interest of the commu
nity and against crimiu ility and vice of
every description, and that it never teartJ
to call a wrong by its proper name.
We know that in the pursuit of this
course we have made enemies of all law
breakers; aroused the jealousy of our com
petitors; offended some few gixid people,
but pleased the great majority ti those in
this community whose good w ill is worth
everything. The anger of the first named
is our pride; to the jealousy of the second
we are indifferent; tor arousing the ill-will
of the third we are sorry, but the good
opinion of the latter and an approving con
science is dearer to us than all the wcaitii

Ami so ttu' eji-h that uow I tk
W will cutuvlvo to be a luau."
A !ig I'uuveutlou, all adrir.
Into tho (iarflcld port ai blown;
It did not want htm at a gift,
Hut bud tu lake him m a loau.
All In the nulki li Itojcoe C,, '
lilt purpose nuihly overthrown,
And : "If that the trump mum Im,
Let Garlleld play the Kauie aloue,"
In vain may Brother (larfleldieek
Kor former folly to atone I
Nor now, by auy atrctch of cheek,
Can Amfi' lirlhn become loau.
And when the Hancock itorm hall sweep
Th country like ureatcycloua,
Will Oarfleld'i wall be loud and doapi
"Oh that It might have buen a loan!"
And whea Fraud'ilant supporter dies; .
Ilia monument ahull be atone,
WhurwaU plainly writ: 'HomIWmi
The man who aald It was a loa."
