. While the Democrats aro forming al
liances with the Greenbackers in several
of tho states, the Republicans are banking
on Weaver, the Greenback candidate for
president. Weaver says that he will carry
three or four southern states. If Weaver
could make his statement good, the Re
publicans would want nothing better. But
Weaver can't mako his statement good
He can't carry anything, not even his own
Thcro is considerable inquiry as to
whether tho secretary of the national Re
publican comiuitteo sent president Hayes
oue of his circulars asking for two per cent,
of his salary for campaign purposes. Two
per cent, of tho president's salary would
make quite an addition to the campaign
fund. It is probable, however, that the
president is too much of a believer in civil
service reform to contribute anything out
ot his own funds.
General J. B. Weaver, tho Greenback
Labor nominee for president, in his letter
ot acceptance, declares that his party, is
composed, of "earnest people, who earn
their bread by honest toil, whether of hand,
head or heart." It would be interesting to
know what kind of people earn their bread
by the toil of their hearts. The only kind
we have heretofore heard of are those who
capture the affections of girls with fortunes,
but we are satisfied that these do not be
long to Weaver's party. The toil of their
hearts ! The toil of their hearts ! I
Dr. Clarke, the bold greenbacker, who
has been chosen a delegate to the congres
sional convention to be held at Murphys
boro ou the 23rd inst., left for that burg
yesterday with the blessings of Jack Win
ter and Pat Mockler resting upon his ven
erable head. The convention which se
lected Dr. Clarke a3 one of the delegates,
instructed him to vote for himself as tho
congressional candidate, and being in duty
bound to respect the wishes of the conven
tion ho will doubtless submit to its wishes
with the best possible grace.
Somo time ago there was considerable
talk about ruuning a ferryboat buck of
this city, between Greenfield's landing and
the Illinois shore. Capt. Keiscr was the
first to create the talk by his efforts in thut
direction, but failing to obtain the desired
craft he abandoned the scheme, whereupon
Mr. Ambrose Pyatt took a hold of it and
fur a timo matters looked as though a ferry
in that trade was a thing of the near fu
ture. But he, too, was disappointed and,
wo believe, has, like Capt. Koiser, abandon
ed tho project. It is generally believed
that there is a little lortuue in store for the
right man with the right craft who will en
ter the trade mentioned.
All four ot the presidential candidates
have military records ot more or lets bril
liancy. Hancock played a very prominent
part in tho Mexican war, in tho war lor tho
Union and in wars with the Indians. Gur
field was a soldier in tho late civil war lor
a couplo of years, and then went into pol
itics. Weaver was in tho lato war but he
does not appear to have won marked dis
tinction. Neal Dow was a soldier on the
Union side but did not become famous. Of
the nominees for vice-president Arthur is
tho only one who has a military title and,
as far as known, ho made what reputation
he has as a soldier among thu home guards
of New York.
A number of our Republicans would bo
greatly pleased should Mr. John B. Pliillis
announce himself as an independent candi
date for the office of circuit clerk in fact,
wo understand that they will urge upon the
gentlemen the propriety ot announcing
himself nnd promise to exert themselves to
their utmost to secure his election. Of course
the gentleman who speak in this manner do
not entertain the greatest possible amount
of love for Mr. Reeve, the regular nominee of
the party, and claim to have good reason
for "kicking the traces." Mr. Phillis is a
gentleman of acknowledged worth who
has served the city in the most satisfactory
mnuuer in tho capacity of city clerk. He
has tho good will of our colored voters and
njoys a deserved popularity among our
white citizens of both parties. This being
the case, it is possible that as an indepen
dent candidate, he would make a good
- We are not in tho habit of discoursinu
about the weather but' tho decided and
agreeable change, together with a scarcity
of local news, is our apology for a tow
words on this subject. Our people have
ullered intensely from the heat of late and
tho local prophets eyed with weather wise
eyes tho clouds nnd other evidences of show
ers that were being bestowed around about,
but all to a man remarked, "Them there
clouds won't briug uo rain here." But
they were mistaken, as sundry wet
jackets and limp Swisses could
testify. Thonhowcr was just as refreshing
even if some people did get wet. To tho
rollef of all, tho breezo that accompanied
tho shower did not dio away with it, but for
several nights a cool northwest wind has
given to sleep its wonted pleasure, and to
out-dorr exercise its euvlgorating influence.
As was intimated in yesterday morn
ing's issuo of The Bolletin, Col. Dan
Rico has purchased the steamer Champion
from Mr. Andrew Bird. Tho Colonel in
tends to transform her into a novelty in the
way of a museum and opera houso. He
yesterday closed the contract with the
Iambic ton Bros., of Mound City, for hav
ing the necessary changes made, and will
havo her out as soon aa possible on her
grand new career as the only floating
amusement pahec iu the country. Col
Rico has harbored this schemo tor years,
and with his experience with the people
and the various means of entertaining
thorn, he has no doubt that this new enter
prise will prove entirely successful. At
any rate, whatever many years of intercourse
with tho amusement loving people of the
cutire United States has taught him, and
his natural talent as a judge of human na
ture together with all that money, labor
and indomitablo energy can do to make
this uew enterpriso the graudest affair of
the time, will bo done. Wo hope that Col
onel Rice will have ample reason to con
gratulato himself upon his success in the
The Democratic congressional conven
tion meets at Carbondalo for the purpose of
nominating a candidate for congress from
this district to-morrow. Wo stated in yes
terday morning's issue that, in our opinion,
Mr. Hurtzell would bo the best becatiso
tho strongest man to nominate and we still
believe so. But it has beeu said that a
"dark horse" is to be run in as acompromise
between two factions that are said to exist
in the party. If it is true that such a course
is necessary in order to insure harmony in
the party, it is to be regretted. If how
ever, it must come to that we hope that a
good man will be selected. There is no ex
cuse for selecting any other kind, for we
have plenty of good material in the party.
Judge Green is spoken of as oue of the
"dark horses," and we must say that, if wo
can not have llartzell. it would be the
heigth of wisdom to agree upon him. Of his
eminent fitness for a seat in congress
it would seem almost unnecessary to speak,
since his reputation extends over the en
tire state and into Kentucky and Missouri,
no is a Democrat by birth, and it can
not be said that he has not been and is
not now as consistent a Democrat as there
is iu the country. He has lent his services
to the party willingly and without stint,
during these, many years of "successful de
feat." lie never stood back when his
efforts could contribute in the least to the
success of its nominees and often sacrificed
his own interests to those of the party and
tho people. He is a shrewd lawyer, an
eloquent, logical speaker, whose argument
at the bar or on the rostrum never fails to
convince, and these, together with his
many other qualifications enable him to
cope successfully with whatever opposition
lie would meet in the halls of congress and
to see and perform the duties that devolved
upou him as the representative from this
section of the state. We bolieve him to be
specially fitted tor, and well deserving of
the place, and would gladly do all in our
power to elect so worthy a man.
Two young men came to this city,
from Ballard county, day before yesterday
and after becoming intoxicated landed at
the cottage on the corner of Eleventh and
Commercial. Having obtained permission
to make themselves as comfortable as pos
sible they laid down to sleep and while one
of them was resting easily in the arms of
Morpheus the other relieved him of his sil
ver watch and chain and twenty-two dol
lars in money. Upon awakening he found
his partner gone and discovered
his loss, but not being acquainted with
city life or the ways of the
world generally, ho failed to
notify the officers of the affair
and undertook to find the thief on hia
own account. Ho tramped up and down
the various streets of the city until about
four o'clock yesterday att'-ruoon when a
disinterested party informed Chief Robin
son of the affair and that gentleman at once
informed his subordinates of tho loss and
tried in various ways to gain a clue as to
what route the thief had taken, but at the
present writing Uii whereabouts is uu
known. The thought has doubtless occurred to
our readers "does Cairo suffer from absen
teeism?" Certainly not seriously. It must
bo borne in mind that there are two classes
of absentees and that between them there
is nothing in common. A portion of the
real estate of this city is owned by absen
tees who permanently reside abroad, who
employ agents to rent their property, and
who contribute nothing towards schemes of
commercial enterpriso or public beuefit.
iVbsentees of this class have nothing in com
mon with the people from whom their re
venues arc drawn, and they effectually clog
tho progress of the community. Ireland
is a tearful example of the
results produced by absenteeism
in this, its most obnoxious form. There is,
however, another and far larger class of ab
sentees who leave Cairo for two or three
mouths to recuperate for future campaigns.
The interests of these are all here, their en
ergies are devoted to building up tho com
merce of the city and they aro, in every re
spect, citizHiis of Cairo. .There cau
bo no greater mistake than to regard all
mouey spent in summer travel as perma
nently taken from tho resources of tho city.
On the contrary, money so spent is returned
a thousand fold in tho increased intelli
gence and more experience which' travel
brings. The people of the west cau learn
from thoso of tho east,and the people of tho
north can learn as much from thoso of th
south as tho former from tho latter. There
fore, we say that monoy spent by intolli
gent Cairoites in traveling anywhere, is
well spent. Moreover, the competition be
tween great lines of railway has made it
possible to go to New York or Chicago for
a sum that seems beggarly, by comparison
with the distancod traversed. They cau
now travel, who in former years seldom
passed the limits of the city. Some people
actually believe that it Is impossible to live
in this climate through tho year, but never
theless the greater portion of our inhabi
tants manage to exiet hero without going
north; and, if ono may judgo by appear
ances, they aro very healthy specimens of
the human race. For tho benefit of this
majority of our population, more than for
any other class, our park should bo made
attractive in order that they may at least
havo ono pleasure resort during the heated
term. The American people havo discov
ered that play is as necessary as work ;
that is a valuable discovery.
As the campaign progresses it becomes
more and more important that the voter
should know and consider all the qualifica
tions of the several candidates for office,
either favorable or otherwise, of which they
are possesesd. It is essential to the attain
ment ot tfie best results, that we should
vote intelligently ami honestly. We should
know who the candidate is;
whether or not he is compe
tent to perform the duties ol tho office,
which he seeks; and, being competent,
whether or not he would honorably per
form them. Ami having learned this, and
satisfied ourselves as to who is the best man,
we should not fail to do what little in us
lies, even though it bo only our vote, toward
placing him where his qualifications
will serve to benefit the public. The
man who lias beeu tried in the crucible of
public opinion, and not foua 1 wanting is,
of course, always preferable to one
who has not stood the test.
Not, perhaps, because he would not be able
to stand the same test; but because, not
having passed thiough it, he is not as well
prepared by experience to perform the
duties to which he may be called. This
should always be adhered to when the wel
fare of the people in general can be attained
without resorting to strict party action.
In our coming county election there is no
necessity for such a resort. There is no
great principle to be vindicated; uo impor
tant public question to be decided; no
great public wrong to be corrected. We
can therefore see no excuse for party action
on the part of either Republicans or Demo
crats. That the affairs of the county have
been honestly, economically and ably ad
ministered, must be admitted by everylody
regardless ot politics. Especially lias this
been so with regard to the sheriff's office.
Mr. Hodges has made a record while in
that office, with which that of but
few of his predecessors can compare favor
ably, and as collector, he has been superior
to any of them. He lias had the experience
of one term which has been entirely satis
factory to the people, and will enable him,
if possible, even to improve upon his own
work. Mr. Hodges is not the nominee of
any party and is not so weak in his record
that he would need party sup
port, but he stands before the
voters of the county upon his own
'pins," and can point to his re
cord as a guarantee of good faith
and ability in the performance of his du
ties. Mr. C. F. Neliis, the Republican
nominee for sheriff, is a good mail. No
one can urge aught against him that
would in tho least detract from his good
name. But Mr. Neliis is not as capa
ble of performing the duties of
sheriff as Mr. Hodges is. He may
make a good steamboat captain ; he is a mau
of intelligence, of honor of energy, etc., but
he is not possessed ot the qualifications for
the office of sheriff in so eminent a degree
as Jack Hodges is. He is, at beat, untried
and inexperienced and hampered with party
claims, whose clink would very likely be of
ten heard and weight often felt by the
people, in the administration of the affairs
of the office.
This morning at 8 o'clock, at the resi
dence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Augusta
Henneberger, Mr. T. D. Herring, of Cairo,
and Miss Lou. A. Heuneberger, of this
place, were united in marriage by Rev. J.
T. Hendrick, of tho Presbyterian church.
Tho wedding took place in the presence of
a few intimate friends and relatives, and
was consummated in a modest manner.
Tho bride and groom were neatly and ap
propriately arrayed and were attended by
Mr. Frank Morton, of Louisville, and Miss
Ella Herring, of this city, and Mr. Herbert
Graves, of Elizabethtown, and Miss
Monia Henneberger, sister of tho
bride, all presenting an attractive picture.
United in their young lives the happy cou
plo launch their barque under most pro
pitious circumstances, carrying with them
the well wishes of a large acquaintance.
Knowing each to lie worthy of tho other,
admiring their several worth, abilities, etc.,

Mr. Frank M. Kolsh, the agent of P. T.
Barnum, was in tho city yesterday, and call
ed at our office. He assures us that Bar
num has arranged to exhibit his own and
only greatest show on earth here, on Thurs
day, the 2:3rd day of September.
The show is much finer, extcnslvo and
expensive than ever before; many new fea
tures.having been added for the season of
1830 to tho best and most attractivo of the
features of last season. Wo have the great
showman's personal assurance that his show
for this year is tho largest that ever traveled
in any country in tho world. The mena
gerie and museum department contain num
berless animals and curiosities never before
exhibited. The mechanical and automatic
attractions are of peculiar and novel interest,
while the circus department company num
bers full a hundred performers including
Madame Dockrell, Madamo Martha, Mad
emoiselle Nelson, Signora Marcellus, and
other noted lady riders and performers, to
gether with Signora Sebastian the finest
bareback rider of the day, and many other
stars in tho specialties of the arena. Mr.
Barnim has added seven trained stallions
to his famous group of twenty, as well as a
yoke of trained oxen, some trained kan
garoos, etc., etc. All this will be good news
to an amusement loving people, who know
that Barnum furnishes more real wholesome
amusement, fun, and instruction for the
money, than any showman in the world.
He always keeps his promises and never ad
vertises anything he does not exhibit.
