Harry Walker and his Comique troupe
cave for Charleston to-day and will show'

constituted is one of tho best of its kind in
the country and will doubtlcs "make a bit'

ber ot people will be attracted there by the
polo raising which takes place to-day.
Since the entire troupe will be absent, no
performance will be given at the Comique
to-night, but as a substitute Mr. Walker
will spread a turtle soup lunch in which all
are invited to indulge without cost.
The regular Sunday afternoon meet
ings of tho Temperance army continues to
be well attended. The slight opposition
with which the movement was first met
when tho organization ot tho army was
effected has entirely disappeared
and parents of all religious sects,
living in all portions of the city, now per
mit their children to attend the meetings of
the army because they recognize the fact
that their children are taught somo of the
most wholesome truths in the most pleas
ant manner. Mrs. Thompson, ot Anna,
the president of tho Woman's Christian
Temperance Union of that burg, was pres
ent at last Sunday's meeting and spoke in
the most interesting and instructive man

The wind-up of tho colored men's con
vention, held at Springfield a week ago to

ing that of Judge Bird, of this city, no
was bold enough to say that there were
many good men In the Democratic party,
notably among them being his highly es
teemed tnend J. H. Oberly, ot Cairo. He
bad brought down on his head the wrath
and indignation of his own (the Democratic)
party because of tho philanthropic stand ho
took in behalf of the school law of this
stati; while a member of tho state legisla
ture. He could trust him individually,
but, unfortunately br him, he was aociat
e l with a party whoso history on all man
ner oi legislation pertaining to the rights
of the negro was bad.
--We have it from Dr. Clarke that a
number of ladies were present at the Green
back convention held at Murphysboro on
tho 23 inst., and that some of these ladies
the handsomest ones among the whole
crowd actually mounted tho speakers'
platform and, in the language of Shakes
peare moved tho gentlemen present with a
"concord of sweet sounds." In other
words they sang their choicest selections to
t.ie admiring crowd of "male men" and
this fact, says the doctor, is ample evidenco
that tho Greenback cause is "getting
along." We beg pardon for differing with
so learned a gentleman as the Doctor, and
must bo permitted to say that in our hum
ble opinion it was not Grocnbackism which
caused tho presence of tho handsome and
musical ladies aforesaid; but their attend
ance was solely caused by the known pres
ence of tho handsome physiognomy and
shapely form of Dr. Clarke and our es
teemed friend Jack Winters.
Under the bead of "Condensed News,"
etc., we will hereafter, give our readers, in
short paragraphs, the latest news from all
over the country taken from all
our exchanges, from dispatches and from
other sources at our command. We
shall endeavor thereby to make The Bul
letin a newspaper in tho fullest sense of
that lerm, and by giving its readers only
the essence of tho lenghthy accounts of
events and occurrences as they generally
appear in the larger journals, save them
tho trouble . of wading through a mass ot
tiresome matter before reaching tho point.
We aro indeed put to considerable addi
tional trouble in adding this new feature to
The Bulletin, but we do it gladly, know
ing that our work will be appreciated.
Where tho county road crosses tho
track of tho Illinois Central railroad Co.,
the passage has been obstructed by great
heaps of gravel, dumped there from flat
cars and to be used, no doubt, in repairing
the road bed. But it has lain there a while
and judging from appearance it may lay
there a while longer, to the great incon
venience of farmers who may lw on their
way to Cairo. Numerous complaints have
been made by them and not without reason.
For when they reach that point on their
way to Cairo with a load of wheat or other
produce, they aro compelled to take off
half their load, cress with the other half,
unload it, and then return for what they
left behind. The case demands the mime-'
diato attention of tho proper authorities
The Cairo jockey club is making ar
rangements preparatory to holding a grand
race At no distant day. The Mayfield
jockey club was here yesterday in consulta
tion with the Cairo club, and we may ex
pect one of the grandest aflair of the kind
ever held in this city, if the two clubs
conclude to join their efforts in getting it
up. The races will come off in the park.
But, as everybody will understand, it takes
money to conduct such an undertaking
properly; and since the club cannot collect
admission at the gate of the park, it being
public property, they will use every effort
to secure, as soon as possible, a ground of
their own, so that they can collect gate
money enough to cover at least the expense
they incur in carrying on the affair. That
the club, when in successful operation, will
contribute not a little to the business inter
ests ot the city will be denied by n'mc.
Hence our merchants should not be back
ward in lending it all possible assistance in
its efforts to establish itself.
A well dressed stranger, seeing Mr.
Do Pue leave his residence on the coiner of
Fourteenth, and Commercial, Sunday,
marched straight up to the house after Mr.
D. had got out of calling distance and,
passing Mrs. D. who was standing in the
front door, without addressing her, marched
into the house and made himself comfort
able in the front room. Being asked
by Mrs. D. what he wanted, he replied
that it was none of her business and insist
ed that he would do as he pleaded in the
building. Biing thoroughly aroused, Mrs.
D. called her colored cook and that lady,
taking iu the situation tit a glance, used a
bit of strategy; ran to the back door, and
called for "Jim" with tnight and main.
This had the desired effect. The scoun
del fearing that "Jin" was actually about
to bounce iu upon him, took to his heels
with double quick speed.
The nomination of Judge Ileilman
gives general satisfaction here as elsewhere.
Although there are some who have not the
pleasure of an acquaintance with him, tjiey
do not, therefore, doubt his eminent fitness
for congress, but join in the hearty support
given him by others who do know him.
It stands to reason that a man who has suc
ceeded in so far gaining the confidence and
admiration of those who know him best, as
to be elevated from an humble tailor's shop
to the county judge's seat, and then
to the nomination for congress from this
district, must of necessity, be a man ot" rare
qualities' 'and wall deserving of any position
within the gift of the people. The judge
is not an orator, nor a loud mouthed brag
gart like Thomas, hence he is not as no
torious as he might be. He is a man of
deep thought and few words, who considers
well the work before him, and performs it
effectually and satisfactorily. The poop! 3!
of the entire district will have an opportu
nity of seeing him during the campaign.!
and we predict that they will be favorably
impressed with him.
We notice in u recent issue of the Chi
cago Sun, a journal devoted to the interests
of the stock raiser, that Mr. M. B. Uarrell,
who is connected with it editorially, is
waging war upon an unprincipled competi
tor. It appears that the man, who is pub
lishing and editiug n paper pretendinj to
be devoted to the s.ttno interests, is a con
scienceless pretender whose tricks consist in
gaining the confidence of the reader and
advertiser by bragging on a circulation his
paper does not possess, and in securing pe
cuniary assistance from merchants, etc., by
boasting of a busluoss prosperity which is
not his. Mr. llurryll exposes the villain's
tricks; proves him to be guilty of wrong
fully taking possession of a widow's prop
erty; of attempting to effect a secret al
liance with a wealthy insurance company
and thus to further the interests of the com
pany whilo pretending to bo tho guardian
of those of tho stock raiser, and shows him
to be a liar, a thief, a hypocrite and a per
jurer. All this Mr. Uarrell does In the
most pointed and, at the same time, gcnteol
language, displaying all those powers of
argument, sarcasm and fluency of language,
for which ho was noted whilo editing Tub
In convention with one of our Stalwart
Republican friends, yesterday, thequestion
was put to us in un excited manner:
"What has the Democratic party done that
it should, for ono moment, bo considered
favorably!" Yes, what has tho Democratic
party done that it should, for one moment,
bo considered favorably? Wo do not re
fer to its acquisition of territory three
times tho extent of the original Union. We
do not refer to its fighting two foreign wars
to a successful and honorable conclusion.
We do not refer to its conducting the
Federal government for about three quar
ters of a century, and all tho time maintain
ing peace between the north and south, the
east and west. We do not refer to its hav
ing overcome Federalism, Nativeism
and Know Nothingism. We
refer to what it has done since it got a foot
hold in congress. We have not the appro
priations for 1881 in an official form, or in
nn unofficial form and hence can not either
itemize them or stato their aggregate. But
we can state what they were as made ot the
Repulican party, when yet in control of
both houses of congress, for the four years
preceding 1877. They were:
1873 $180,488,030 00
1874 104,118,985 00
1875 171,529,818 27
1876 104,857,813 30
Four Republican years. . . .$710,905,283 53
The following statement of the appro
priations for the government made for four
years ending with June 30, 1880, we have
taken Hon. John Sherman's last year
1877 $124,122,010 72
1878 114.nG9,4S3 13
1879 140,304,300 21
1880 102,404.047 70
Democratic four years. . . .$540 900,450 83
It will bo thus seen that the ap
propriations by the Democratic
party for the four years ending
June 30, 1880, were $104,094,832.71 less
than the appropriations for the four Re
publican years, euding with the 30th of
June 1870, That is to say, the Democrats
have run the gcvornment of the United
States five years, although all the execu
tive uepsr: moat1; und thetK-natt! were ia the
hands of the Republicans, for about the
amount of money that it cost under Repub
lican legislation to run it for four years.
This is not all that has leen done by the
Democratic party. It made resumption
possible by stopping the destruction of the
Greenback, by permitting its receipts for
custom dues, and by restoring silver in the
form of money to the channels of trade.
It has, in cflect.outlawed congressional job
bery. May Tue Bulletin not, then, be
permitted to ask' the voters who desire
good government and cheap government,
to vote for Hancock, Heilman end the
whole Democratic ticket?
The archery meeting at the residence of
Mrs. Burnett, the vice-presidentof the club,
was well attended last evening, although
some of the most enthusiastic members
were'conspicuous by their absence" from
this as well as others of the late meetings.
The shooting averaged very well, and the
spectators of whom there was an unusually
large number, evinced a great deal of in
terest in it. The betting, however,
did not run very high. At half
past six o'clock the president,
Mr. Pennebaker, announced that the target
was set and bows should be strung.
Under his direction Miss Mollie Riley
ied off, fo. lowed by Mrs. Burnett,
Miss Annie Riley, Mis3 Effie Coleman and
others. Center shots were not entirely the
exception. The leading hits und scores
made with 30 arrows at CO yards were :
Miss Mollie Riley, 20 hits, value 78 points;
Miss Annie Riley. 7 hits, 27 points; Mrs. J
Burnett, 11 hits, 41 points; Miss Effie Cole
maD, 10 hits, 42 points; Mr. Burnett GO
hits, 158 points; Mr. Pennebaker, 24 hits,
100 points. The president announced that
the next meeting, Thursday evening, would
be held at the same place, and recommend
ed an earlier commencement of the exercise.
A cordial invitation is extended to all mem
bers ot the club, and to all others who feel
interested in this healthy pastime, to be
present on Thursday evening.
