The National board of health authori

authorities will keep yellow fever from vis

It was always urged as a point of

German parentage, but who can both read

Barton's Free Press, a Republican
journal, contains the following concerning
our next congressman, Judge Heilman:
"Judge Thomas Heilman, of Jonesboro,
drew the prize. The nominee is a Demo
crat; yea of tho ancient and honorable per
suasion, one that reminds us of Old Hick
ory himself. As a man and citizen, he is
without spot or stain. If beaten, he must

Places which quarantined New Orleans
last week are rapidly getting over their

Grenada, Miss., has removed all quarantine
restrictions on shipments of fieight from

Carbondale, as is well known, Is a tem

for bar-rooms well, in tho language of
Phil. V. Field, "there is but one Barr In the
placo, and that's Billy Barr," But the fact
that the Democrats held their convention
there on lttBt Thursday, demonstrates,' be
yond a doubt, that the Republican idea
that no convention can bo properly run
without tho assistance of Bacchus, is erro
neous, and is in remarkable contrast with
the Garfield club of this city, which meets
every week regularly In tho store room of
the city brewery.
The Africans of Illinois, after raaturo
deliberation, have reached the conclusion
that they have worked and voted with the
Republican party about long enough with
out receiving their proper share of tho
spoils of office. They claim to control
about thirty thousand votes in this state,
and they think tlrjy nro entitled to some
thing better than positions of porters and
janitors in tho state and federal public
buildings. They held a convention at
Springfield last Tuesday, and made their
grievances public in the shape of a series of
resolutions. Senator Logan had better
keep his eye on tho black brigade, or else it
will desert to the enemy this tall.

Judge Bird has returned from the con
vention ot colored men recently held at
Springfield, which seems to have been
called for the purpose of demanding of
the Republican party a porportionate share
of the loaves and fishes. They claim that
while they furnish a large share of the
votes, they are totally neglected in the dis
tribution of the offices. Flannagan, uf
Texas, outlined the situation in a nut shell
when he claimed at the Chicago conven
tion, "What are wc here for if not for the
offices?" The Republican party should see
to it that the colored voters have their re
ward. There has been, heretofore, a dis
position to deny it to them, and the colored
men have an undoubted right to complain
At the Springfield convention they em
bodied their grievances in an address.
In July and August there seems to
settle down upon the people a spirit of rest
and quietude that furnishes little material
for public comment. All who can, afford the
expense of taking themselves out of town to
seek enjoyment and health, while tlioc
who do remain havn't sufficient life left to
get up an able bodied sensation of any
kind. Even the brute creation seems to
drink in the spirit of quietude, and
the frequent runaway tails to
furuish its item of inteiest. Yet,
upon the weary seeker for items conies the
inexorable demand for news. Every morn
ing as he enters upon the duties of the day,
there hangs before him a blank sheet as a
reminder that so much space must be filled
with something readable for the public.
Then it is that the newspaper man sighs for
something to turn up. Then it is that even
the startling cry of "fire" falls upon his ear
as a welcome sound. Then it is that an
occasional suicide becomes, in his estima
tion, a "taking off"" to be commended.
But alas, these things in July or Au
gust, like everything else in the way
of news, are almost certain to fail, and the
newspaper man is compelled to go down
into his own inner consciousness and evolve
therefrom something that he cannot
find in the great world out
side. It is the opinion of some good peo
pie that newspapers must be mighty hard
up for something to write about when
more than usual space is occupied in tell
ing about a small affair. It is evident
that these good people never tried to edit a
newspaper in the month of July. "Hard
up for something to write about" don't be
gin to express it. Very small things,
indeed, prove a bonanza in such a
time. Even the subjects that do
present themselves posess no in
terest for the general reader in July and
August. Who wants to sit down and read
a fiery political article with the mercury up
among the nineties? Who cares to read"
long moral homilies on the "exceeding sin
fulness of sin?" These things will do well
enough in their season, but the season is
not July or August. Like oysters as an ar
ticle of diet these things belong to months
with tin R in them. The average
reader now wants somethin
light and airy something
doesn't ' require a stretch ot intellect to
grasp, or an effort to digest ami assimilate.
The uewspaper man, if he could have his
way, would prefer to go a fishing, but un
fortunately the average newspaper man
finds a greater "goneness" in his pocket
than in tho world of uews, and nothing is
left but to write about nothing and never
find the subject exhausted.

SUED FOR LIBEL.
At about 1 1':80 o'clock yesterday fore
noon Officer W. II. Schutter entered Thb
Bullktin office and having found tho pub
lisher and editor of the paper, proceeded,
in his usual distinct and happy manner, to
read a summons which authorized him to
bring tho bodies of both before the county
court, to answer to a charge of libel, pro
ferrod by Squiro Comings. In obedience
to this summons, Mr. E. A. Burnett and our
self put in an appearance at the court
house ut 2:110 o'clock, p. rn., and upon ar
riving there found the radiant countenance
aud shapely form of Squire Comings present,
he having apparently anxiously awaited
the arrival of tho two criminals for some
time. But the Squire's attorneys had not
yet arrived and on that account court did
not immediately convene,
After waiting half an hour, however, ami
his attorney not yet having put in an ap
pearance, the proper officer announced that
the court was ready to hear tho case,
and the prisoners (Mr. Burnett and
poor "we") were asked to step into the
court room to answer to a criminal offense
which, if found guilty of, will compel both
to pay a respectable tine nnd at the
same time cause us to accept a lucrative
position in the penitentiary from one to
Mr. Burnett insisted on being handcuffed
before entering tiie court room, but was
persuaded, by the melodious and winning
voice of Officer Schutter and Richard
Fitzgerald to enter without demonstrations.
Feeling our guilt in its full degree, we
were more docile than Mr. 15. anil entered
the presence of Judge Yoctim without per
suasive speech ; with a heavy heart and a
mind that pictured the awful presence of
prison walls and an empty purse.
Upon entering the county court room we
found the Judge occupying the tench with
his usual becoming dignity, while County
Clerk Iltimm graced it in his shirt sleeves
wearing the usual bland smile on his ex
pressive countenance. Mr. Richard Fitz
gerald's manly form was visible at the
left ot the Judge's bench; Squire Coinings
comfortably filled a chair at the
right. Mr. Burnett and otirself occupied
seats at the left and Lawyer G ilium consti
tuted fthe all-attentive audience. After a
few moments of "supreme silence" bad
elapsed the judge apprised th". prisoner J at
the bar of their offense ami placing them
under two hundred dollars bond each, for
their appearance at the next term of the
county court, enquired who was their se
curity, to which Mr. Fitzgerald replied
that he was the bondsman.
Both, the prisoners nnd Mr. Fitzgerald were
then sworn und informed that they were at
liberty to breath the free air of heaven un
til the next term of court, when their pres
ence in person would be acceptable. At
this juncture the great criminal lawyer, the
Hon. Justus. Cunningham, made his appear
ance battle court room, and wiping great
drops of pre.spiralion from bis
intellectual brow with a red
handkerchief, informed those present that
he had heard it on the streets that his
presence, in a legal capacity, was desired
by Mr. Burnett and that he had, without
losing any time and immediately upon
hearing of it, repaited to the court house.
At this juncture States Attorney W. C.
Mulkey, attorney tor Squire Comings, put
in an appearance and requested to be inform
ed how tar the case had proceeded. Being
informed, he expressed himself satisfied
with the action ot the court, but ap
peared greatly depressed in spirits upon
learning of the legal talent he had to buck
against, and upon his advice Squire Com
ings immediately engaged additional legal
assistance in the person ot Mr. Walter War
der. Mr. Cunningham will conduct the de
fence for Mr. Burnett and we have decided
to engage the services of City Attorney
Hendricks, with whoso able assistance, and
the help of God, we expect to thwart the
heartless th signs of tho cruel Squire to
crush our blooming youth which is just
budding into manhood.
But it is argued that the Squire will
withdraw bis suit before the next session of
the court; that he is in the condition of the
boy who, while on the way to see his sweet
heart stubbed his toe and thought himself
too big to cry and too badly hurt to laugh.
It is assorted by others of his enemies that
ho is like a brook, noisy and shallow, and
that by the time court again convenes he
will be" as still as a
cat in a milk house. But
these are the utterances of fools of twenty
four carats without alloyto whoso slan
ders our good citizens will turn a dent ear.
Wo nro perferctly satisfied that the Squire
Lne.w exactly what he was doing when he
sue! us since he is a man who glories
in tho possession of a great and clear,
brui'i u man who is an intellectual Samp
son among bis fellow men a sort of men
tal reservoir that may burst upon you and
overwhelm you in a moment and that the
itlea of withdrawing the suit will not for a
moment occm to him. So mote it be.
ONE WORD MORE TO MY COLORED
Just at present 1 shnll have to decline tho
request of my colored friend Allen regard
ing making myself known, but will do so
upon an occasion which promises to bo near
at hand. Mr. Allen is well known to me,
and his determination to cast olf tho irk
some yoke of Radicalism is commendablo
and will really work to his advantage In the
I was extremely sorry to, note that tho
colored men were in favor of tho Spring
field convention, for it cannot result other
wise than In wind.
Tho radical managers but reiterate their
old violated pledge; soft soap you into tho
belief that you shall have some
thing; that you deserve, it, etc., etc.,
and your delegates return loaded down
with the same cargo, which has been cast
to you tho past 10 years by this same dis
I think it about time that you were en
deavoring to enhance tho condition of your
selves. You have tested Republican
pledges lor yeurs, und to day you arc fur
ther removed from the rights you
were lod to expect, than ever.
Give your hearts and brains a chance, aflil
iato with any party fyou choose, but always
have it in mind that you owe tho present
party in power a grudge which can only be
satisfied in its complete overthrow.
Tho colored vote is necessary to the life
of the Radical party in this district, and
if you fail to utilize it, you are but mice
among men. The condition of my colored
brethren in La., is iar better than in yours
here in the great state of Illiuois. Down
among the "bulldozers" I find many a hap
py darkey calmly bearing lucrative offices
given them by a Democratic parish, aud
enjoying their homes, honored and respect
ed by their neighbors. These are the
voters, who like myself, have been surfeited
with Republican pledges, and who
have cast off the yoke, and are
now enjoying their rights among men.
It would be interesting from a Demo
cratic colored man's standpoint, to be fully
advised of the inside workings of the
Springfield convention. The promises in
dulged in by the Republicans who succeed
ed in capturing the convention. I am sat
isfied that each and every delegate, upon
their return home, felt that the Republican
party would exist in future tor the bene
fit of tho colored race only.
In conclusion, I have to say this, that
since tho formation ot the Radical machine,
the negro has had naught but promises us
recompense for supporting the ticket. If
he has ever had an office tendered him, it
wis that which a wbiteuian wouldn't have,
and which the colored incumbent was
glad to resign that he could employ his
time at something which would yield a
