A very gloomy feeling has taken pos
session of tho managers of Garfield's cam
paign. It is that all tho states in which tho
party is controled by leaders who favored a
third term may bo reasonably classed as
doubtful states. With sucli a feeling as
this, tho Republican canvass will hardly be
as lively aud enthusiastic as Garfield and
his admirers wish.

ICR. Stuart, Eighth street.
Hons. Trumbull, Parsons, Butterworth
and Harmon were in the city consulting
with other prominent Democrats, as to the
best means to be adopted in the manage
ment of the coming campaign. The chair
man of the several couuty central committees
of this district were present, and took an
active part. The meeting was held in Messrs.
Linegar & Lansdeu's office and there is no
doubt that the plan agreed upon by the
gentlemen will prove successful.
The Fifth ward fire company, which
has now been thoroughly organized, has
ordered a No. 3 engine from Button &
Son, Watcrford, N. Y. It is to cost eight
hundred dollars, of which amount the com
pany lias five hundred subscribed. The
committee, in whose hands the work of pro.
curing subscriptions was given, has worked
faithfully and effectually, and will succeed
in having the necessary amount on hand
when the time for its use arrives.
Squire Osboru yesterday made a rather
unpleasant aud aggravating discovery. It
was that in moving his office from the
corner of Eighteenth and Commercial to
opposite of this office, he had got outside of
the precinct for which ho was elected, and
that therefore all business in the future
transacted in his present office will be
illegal. This will necessitate his
removal from his present quarters, aud since
we desired to retain him as one of our
neighbors, we regret it.
The trial of Mrs. Fred. Whitcamp for
the murder of her husband will not take
place at this term of the circuit court, but
has been postponed until the next term.
Geo. Kohl having plead guilty tothecharge
of murder and having been sentenced to
imprisonment for life, of course, prevents
him from testifying iu the case, and since
he was the principal witness of tho affair, it
is probable that Mrs. Wlutcamp's punish
ment will be very light, or that she will not
be punished at all.
We yesterday learned from Mr. Henry
Planert, the enumerator for township Fif
teen, regardless of range, that his township
contained a population of fourteen hundred
and some seventy odd. Judging from the
reports so for made -it is calculated that
Alexander county's population will be
found to be between seventeen nnd eigh
teen thousand. This is a remarkable in
crease on tho last census taken, which
showed a population often thousand in tho
eutire couuty six thousand in Cairo and
four thotisaud in the country.
There has been a marked decline iu
the mud throwing business during the last
week. Democratic journals have less to
say about the Do Golyer contract, the Cred
it Mobilier frauds and other matters which
are blotches on Garfield's public record,
while Republican journals seem to have
run out of material with which to vilify
Hancock. The work of mud throwing
commenced too soon and was prosecuted
too vigorously to hold out to the end. Tho
country is now pretty well acquainted with
the records of the candidates, and it would
be well, perhaps, to turn attention to the
real issues of the campaign.
As was seen by our report of the Re
publican couuty convention, Mr. Wood Rit
tenhouse was nominated, by acclamation
for the position of county commissioner, on
the Republican ticket, to till the vacancy
which will occur by tho expiration of Mr.
T.W. Halliday'sterm. Mr. Halliday has
proven h; ;lf a very valuable man as com
missioner, and we hope ho will consent to
stand for ro-elcction, but while we fay this
we mtisi confess that the cot nty would be
well served by Mr. Rittonhousu who is one
of out old and reliable businessmen, whose
sound sense and interests in this city and
county would insure tho wisest and most
careful action ou his part.
Garfield made some pretentions to
poetry when a Btudent at Williams college.
The sophomores at that college had a habit
of stealing the freshmen's beer, aud oa
one occasion, when a thoft of this kind was
expected, the freshmen "doctored" the
beer with ipecac. Garfield told tho effect
of tho "doctored" beer ou tho sophomores
in a poem which he entitled "Tho Tight
Brigade." Tho following was the last
stanza of it:
Bottles to right of them,
Bottles to left of them,

If thero is one class ot young ladies in
this city, who aro popular and who know
how to make themselves generally agree
able, more than others, they arc those
young ladies who have associated them
selves with the temperance work in this
city. It is a well knowa fact that whatever
entertainments they have given hare proven
eminently satisfactory to themselves and
to the gentlemen who participated in them.
Tho last affair of noto which was
given by them was tho ball on tho evening
of tho 5th inst., and although attractions
wero held out in Ilartman's hull and in the
park, their little social dance which had
been gotten up without any pretentious
eclipsed both of these iu point of numbers
and enjoyment. On next Tuesday night
these young ladies will give a moonlight ex
cursion on tho "Thrco States," and since a
string band will bo had on board, the ani
mation of youth will overllow spontaneous
ly iu harmonious movements- in other
words, dancing will bo indulged in and tor
all this the participants will bo taxed the

Perhaps no grand jury that ever as

true that the jury was in session a long

The greenbackers turned out last night
in full force. They had a large procession,
composed chiefly of coming voters, which
moved down Commercial avenue headed by
Dr. Clark, who bore the torch, and by a
juvenile drummer. The crowd was unusu
ally enthusiastic as they moved along the
streets, and the Doctor must certainly have
felt that he was the champion of the greatest
party in the country. Tho procession
marched to their usual rendezvous aud after
having been thoroughly organized by the
election of chairman, secretaries, etc., it
proceeded to business. Among numerous
important resolutions and transactions
was the election of delegates to
nominate a candidate for congress.
Messrs. Matt. Fulton, A. Comings and
another gentleman were appointed as such
delegates. It was moved and seconded
that the delegates bo instructed to vote for
Dr. Clark as a candidate for congress.
The doctor took tho compliment coolly,
only waving his hand in appreciation of the
club's kindness aud good sense iu select
ing him as their standard bearer. It was
immediately moved and seconded that
Dr. Clark be elected to congress by accla
mation. But the doctor seemed to think
that such a course would be unwise in the
present financial condition of the country
and interrupted the hasty action of tho as
sembly when the chair was about to put
the motion by exclaiming, "6top! stop!
You can't do that. You can't elect a man
to congress by" acclimation." Alter somo
further action ot importance and a few re
marks from the several of the orators pres
ent, the meeting was adjourned sine die.
The candidates tor states attorney are
now both iu tho field, aud, enjoying the
personal acquaintance of both ot them, we
believe we are capable of estimating them
justly and will attempt to do so in a man
ner whitili shall offrnd neither gentleman.
Mr. Leek, the independent can
didate, is so well known to our
people that but littlo need be said
concerning him. He has made Cairo
his home for many years; studied l.iw here;
was admitted to the bar hero and lias en
joyed a large practice for several years.
Ho is a young man of good habits; of the
best of common sense which is too often
uucommon a man who has madctho wants
of our people Ids study aud being of unpre
judiced mind, will work for tho interests of
all classes, uot for ono class, and
thereby further the intorests of tho whole
town. Although young, ho is
older than his opponont, and
has shown himself capable of coping with
our best legal talent. He is a plain man
who treats everybody alike and treats every
body well and being a partner of our pres
ent states attorney will be qualified to dis
charge the duties of 'tho office intelligently
from the start without blundering. But a
word about Mr. Damron, tho nomiuco of
the Republican party. Ho is a young man
for whom wo have a high
regard, who is sociablo and
sensible. But wo must bo permitted to say
that lie is not such a man as tho people ot
Alexander county fancy for the states' at
torneyship. Ho but recently arrived in
this city from Vienna, Johnson county, and
came hero with tho avowed intention of
running for office. Ho is a carpet-bagger
of tho truo blue kind, who is yet unac
quainted with tho names of the streets upon
which lie walks and who, since his arrival
here, lias not enjoyed tho luxury of appear
ing ia a single case, either civil or criminal,
in our police or any other courts. It is tho
belief of our people that ho doos not expect to
be elected, and is only making the race in
order to bring himself before tho people.
But while these things aro urged against
him we mast say that lie is, every inch, a
gentleman a man of frank and pleasing
disposition who is apt to make a triend of
everyone with whom ho comes in contact.
However, Mr. Leek is tho most deserving
of the two and being a man after our own
heart, wo unhesitatingly express our prefer
ence for him us most of our people have
already done and give voice to the gen
eral belief that there is no sort of a doubt
concerning his election.
It is an axiom that nature wastes no
power. But the limited penetration ot man
has not been able to discover tho actual use
of some natural forces. This, however,
does not throw a question upon the econo
my of nature, it only shows that man has
yet much t learn. One ot the natural
forces which has thus far seemed to be a
waste is the strength attaching to the sons
of Ham in tho perfume which clung to
them when they left the spice
laden atmosphere of the Orient. In
summer this is particularly noticeable
and even in the winter it may become in
tolerable. Many gallons of tears have been
shed by the elect who appreciated the an
noyauce of the odor, and many devices
have been ndopted to counteract it. All
failed like the elixir our shrewd Republi
can friends used to sell them in the south
warranted to "take the kinks out of woolly
hair." Casks of extract of musk and
other strong perfumes have been used only
with the result of intensifying the natural
odor. A boon for sweltering humanity
has been found at last, and by a
young photographer named Emmet Hooc.
By the use of Hooe's elixir the most elxmy
epidermis may throw up its poisonous ex
halations iu vain. These are neutralized
and a sweet, faipt smell like a shiffof clover-fields
takes the place. The elixir is a
chemical preparation which acts as a deod
orizer and evaporator of perspiration. It
imparts a cooling and soothing sensation to
the 6kin without leaving any bad effect.
Tho discovery, like many others of note,
was made by accident. About six months
ago Mr. Hooe had a servant who discounted
Araby the Blest and Brazilian sandal-wood.
One day in pure desperation Mr. Hooe flung
some of the preparation (used for other
purpose) over the highly-flavored one, and
in a short time was surprised that the dis
agreeable odor had vanished. Hooe was
struck with the idea at once that he had
made an important discovery, which he was
not slow to take hold of and to reduce to
perfection, at which point he says he
brought it about a week ago. Siuce then
he has made several practical tests, and in
each case it worked like a charm. His
subjects were picked fur the
strength of their personal dis
tinction as obstacles to individual sanita
tion. The discoverer intends getting a pat
ent tor the preparation and until then would
rather have the ingredients kept a secret.
He has, however, submitted the deodorizer
to the tests of several chemists, who have
pronounced it a fine article, free from any
thing that would injure the pores of the
skiu or in any way affect the health. The
mode of applying the deodorizer
is very simple. Two teaspoonfuls of
tho preparation are put iuto a
half gallon of water, which is taken up
with a sponge and applied to the "affected"
parts by touch. The place can hi after
ward rubbed with a towel without destroy
ing the effects, which remains for about a
week, when another application is neces
sary, Mr. II ooo thinks '.ho preparation ca
pable of deodorizing the aroma of a
goat. The doordorizer itself has a mild
and pleasant ordor. The preparation, Mr.
Hooe says, is much cheaper than cologne
and more effectual.
COLORED MEN IN COUNCIL.
According to agreement the colored citi
zens of Alexander county met in council in
tho hall of the Freo Benevolent Sons of
America, on Fourteenth street. Mr. Jenkins,
who was chosen chairman at the preceding
meeting, being absent Mr. J. Hopsen was
chosen temporary chairman.
The minutes of tho previous convention
wero read and adopted, after which the call
of tho colored state convention was read
and Mr. J. J. Bird came forward and ex
plained tho call by 6tating that the state
convention was called strictly in the in
terest of tho colored citizens of the state of
Mr. A. O. Leonard being present, was in
troduced and mado un eloquent speech iu
behalf of tho colored voters of this stale.
Mr. A. King also made a tew remarks and
Messrs. Gladdon, Wheeler and Good mado
stirring speeches. After this Judge Bird
came forward for tho purpose of reading
a letter from a friend of ids in Indiana, but
before commencing to read he stated that
tho letter was from a colored man, a nomi
nee for tho legislature in that state. He
also stated that ho had been informed by
piomluentcolored men of this state that they
would bo pleased to receive his consent
to come to Cairo for the purpose of running
for congress. Tho Judge stated that he did
not give his consent, because he knew that,
at the present time, it would simply be sur
rendering tho Republican party, in this
congressional district, to the Democracy.
J udgo Bird having concluded, Mr. John
son mado a few remarks after which 3Ir.
King said that it.appeared that for the past
twelve years the colored people had been
used as the tool by the Republican party
He recommended permanent organ
ization and referred to tho Cairo
Democratic council, which he said
had twice confirmed two of our
colored citizens as policemen and com
pared that body with the Republican board
of county commissioners, which had never
insisted upon colored meu acting upon ju
ries and had, in fact, studiously ignor
ed them. lie believed thiB,
would be remedied whenever the
majority of that board wero Democratic.
Mr. Thomas then made a short address af
ter which Judge Bird moved that when the
meeting adjourned it should meet again on
Monday night a week, to hear the report of
the Springfield convention and affect a per
manent organization. G. W. Tanner,
Wheeler, King, Gooden and Gladen were
appointed a committee on resolutions and
instructed to report at the next meeting. A
motion was carried authorizing L. II.
Good, G. W. Tanner and G. A. Louis, the
committee on finance, to solicit contribu

The marriage ceremony of Miss Nina J.
C. Jorgenson and Mr. Thos. C. Wills, of
Atchison, Ks., at the Clifford House,
Charleston, Mo., Rev. Mr. Lusk, officiating,
attended by the bride's mother, Miss Mamie
Taylor and Mr. James Cannon, was a very
pleasant affair to say the least; but what
we desire to mention more particularly is
the reception at the residence of the bride's
mother, on the evening of the ICth. Early
in the evening the friends of the newly
married couple congregated and by ten
o'clock the rooms of the house were com
fortably filled by friends, who congratulated
the pair on the new era they were about to
enter upon. Dancing was indulged in the
most of the evening, by the guests, after
which refreshments were served, con
sisting of ice create, rake and
other toothsome articles. Suffice
it to say it was a very enjoyable party and
long to be remembered by the participants.
The young couple left on the trail yester
day afternoon for Kansas city, where they
will make their home. Among the guests
present at the reception were noticed :

The following Garfield's platform is
the production of the fertile brain of one
of our merchants aud was handed to us sev
eral days ago. It is hard to beat:
On the subject of currency, his favorite
figure is 32!) dollars clear cash.
On the subject of the turiff, he is usually
ten shares iu stock ot the Credit Mobilier
which cost him nothing.
On civil service reform, he will depend
mobtly on Chester A . Arthur's honesty in of
fice. On the subject of the Credit Mobilier, he
advocates no change iu the Republican
On the De Golyer claim, he has nothing
to say just now, because anything he might
say would only make matters worse for the

is for James A. first and last and all the
time if there is auy money in sight.

Happy as a Utile blossom '
Ou whose face tho dew yot lies
Or a streamlet soft reflecting
Star-Isles of mldnUnt skies.
flippy ft the lumbs that wander
'Mid the valleys and the rills
When they reach the shining gateway
Beyond the rucka and hills.
As the white dove softly flattered
To the bosom of the Ark,
Hide thy lambs, oh gontlo Savior.
When the valley'a depths grow dutk.
