The old hump-backed colored rag
U' ltherer, well known by everybody in the
city, met a f;artul death at 10 a. m. yestrr
dav. He was in the habit of going
through the railroad yard in search of the
coal that had fallen from the flat car3, for
home u'jO. It is supposed that he was en
gaged iu picking up coal on the Illiuois
Central railroad, in the switch yard, when
a train of cars that had been given a
shove and allowed to run onto tho track
where the old man was, struck him,
knocked him down aiid, ruuning over his
neck and otherwise mutilating his body,
killed him instantly. Coroner Fitzgerald
immediately sommoned u jury and held an
inquest, whose verdict was: "Accidental
death." Tho coroner bought a cMfin and
had the horribly mutilated remains of the
poor old man decaatly burirl.
The Sun, secure in tho knowlodgo that
it cad never be in any danger ot a lible
because it never says anything about any
thing or anybody, threatens us with cases
from all sorts of sources, and also, if we
understand its twaddle, threatens to bring
suit against us for an attempt to injure its
own business-. It intimates that tho whole
Garfield club, individually and collectively
maysuo The Bulletin for saying "it meets
in the store room of tho City Brewery."
The Sun also says, in its oracular way, that
if Squire Comings "makes his case the edi
tor and tho publisher of The Bulletin
will not find it so funny" etc. For tho bene
fit of tho Sun we do not object to saying
that there is no if about it. Squire Com
ings has a head as long as a rail and knows
just what ho is about. Ho is bound to
win his case, nis own salvation depends
upon it. He knows too much of law not
to know that a criminal charge of this kind,
brought against the advice of a practicing
lawyer, is about a9 dangerous as telling the
truth about a man in a public newspaper.
The Republicans made another at
tempt to rally their forces last night. A9
before, they made extensive f reparations in
the way nt music, bon-flrc9, decorations,
etc. They had also, as before, secured
eminent speakers, among whom was a man
whose reputation alone should have guaran
teed tho fullest turaout of which the party
was capable ; but alas, as before, the demon
stration was a very sickly affair. The band
began to play at the proper hour; the boys
were on hand to make the noise; the bon
fires were started and burned out amidst
the yells of the "kids;"' the "colored boys"
gathered tardily with torches, but for some
cause or other, there was no procession
as was originally intended there should be.
Frobably because they were conscious of
their weakness. A fair crowd had gathered
around tho stand, a large preccntagc of
which were Democrats and boys, very few
white Republicans and the balance were
colored faithfuls. Tho firgt speaker was
not Douglas, to see whom the Democrats
had turned out. But the man made a
tolerably good little speech, and was
several times applauded. The next speaker
was Douglas sure enough. It was
the man whose father had borne
such a brillient part in the h' -tory
of our country and of the
Democratic party. It was tho man, whoso
father had believed that tho principles of
the Democratic party were tho truo princi
ples and founded upon the constitution of
the United States. And it was alio the
man who pretended to be following the in
structions, and in the toot-steps of his fath
er, by abandoning those principles and that
party and joining the, what was knovu di -iug
his father's time, and is known to-day,
as the anti-constitutionaV or Republican
party. This man of whom so much has
been heard because ot his illustratious par
entage, and of whom, therefore, so much
was expected was introduced to the much
ly mixed iiudienoe as the princi
ple speaker of the evening.
Everybody was eager to get a look at the
little man (for little he wa3 both in body
and mind) and everybody expected a great
treat in the way of a political speech. The
impressions that were gained from the
looks of tho m.n were those of doubt, for
he betrayed too much ot the dry-goods
clerk nature. He seemed to be addicted to
the cologne bottle and the claw-hammer
coat, and the impression that he made by
his speech wus one of extreme disappoint
ment. Tae Deuuerats all left in disgust;
the white Rjpubl'cans suvled foolishly;
'he o'.ored men were eagerly w .tching for
the place where the laugh and the yell
came in md the bos seemed to be listen
ing with moutl s, eyes and ears, for the first
noteof tl 's character. This was the pic
ture that greeted a disinterested looker-on.
To say that none but thoso ol very limit
ed meutal powers were entire
ly satisfied with what they
had seen and heard, is putting it very
mildly. It is cortaia that Mr. Douglas dis
gusted nearly every sensible man in the au
dience. His s.yle whs too emphatic for
the' silly stuff he was uttering, his argu
ment was shallow, his wit was' without
point and far-tetched in short, his speech
w;is weak, disconnected, and gave very
good ground for the numerously expressed
convictions that the man was far from able
to sustain the family name. Mr. Douglas
amply verifies the eld adage that really
great men seldom transmit their characters
to their offspring.
It is worthy ot remark that, thus far
this season, a very large proportion of the
excursionists from the country around us,
and from the south, have taken the Ohio
river nut? in preference to any other. The
traveling public are discovering that thero
is no more agreeable way of spending their
annual vacation than traveling on water.
It is healthful, it gives rest, and the scenery
can be enjoyed. No rti-h, racket, hurry,
dast, fatigue and "twenty minutes for din
ner." There i.- time for everything. The
meals aru enjoyed not endured. Tho trav
eler can sit, stand, walk, or lie down, and
he can indulge in all the pleasure of social
intercourse. Our western boats are unap
proachable in this rcpect; if we travel on
one a week we are at home, we pay visits
and receive them, wo acquire neighbors and
acquaintances. The lako and the eastern
boats afford pleasant traveling, but wo nev
trget that comfortable home-like fcollag
the social western boat gives us. The
Ohio river boats have of late become very
popular among people for the comfortable
quirters they offer their guests, their well-
spread tables, and tho very agreeable ot
ficors on tho Cincinnati boats. Then there
is tho charm of tho Ohio river, with its
rounding hills and varying aspects of val
ley and upland, rich pastures and wild
woods. On the upper Ohio tho scenery is
especially picturesque, Islands dot the clear
waters, and Blenncrhassct's island, old Gal
lipolis and other historic spots arouse the
interest of fho traveler. Then come the
towering lulls or tho Alleghany rango, and
the traveler, on reaching Pittsburg, can
proceed eastward through somo of the most
delightful scenery in the interior of tho
United States. We do not wonder that
the Ohio river is, this season, taking so
large a proportion of the southern travel,
and we aro sure that no travelers wiil bo
more gratified with their summer trips

Pursuant to adjournment a large num
ber of colored voters met in the old Turner
hall for the purpose of hearing a full report
from the convention hold at Springfield on
tho 20th and 21st insts. and also tor hear
ing tho report of the committee appointed
to wait on Congressman Thomas. The
meeting was called to order by the chair
man, Mr. Jenkins, who shortly after calling
the "meeting to order introduced Judge J.
J. Bird. This geutleman, who was a dele
gate to the Springfield convention, explain
ed the object fjr which the convention was
called and then submitted a full report
and made a lengthy speech,
in the course of which he stated that the
colored man of to-day is not to be com
pared with the colored man of twenty yean
ago, and that the colored convention had
done more for the Republican party than
all the white Republican orators could do
iu the next twenty years to come.
On motion the Judge's report was then
adoptfl and the .delegate discharged.
G. W. Tanner moved the adoption of the
Resolved, that, in the opinion ot this
meeting the actions of the colored state
convention, held at Springfield, Ills., July
20, 180, should be sustained by the Re
publican party, regardless of race, color or
Resolved, that we (the colored R-publi-can
voters assembled) indorse said conven
tion and the action of J.J. Bird in trying
to procure proper recognition for us.
Resolved, that in our opinion, all those
who oppose the actions of that convention,
be considered as euemies to colored citizens.
While the adoption of the above resolu
tions were pending Mr. Gladden made a
stemwinding speech in which he impressed
it upon his hearers with considerable force
that the colored Republicans could not af
ford to make mistakes. He was heartly
cheered by all, who assured him that the
colored men had already made too many
grave mistakes and that they were now en
deavoring to correct them.
Mr. Gladden was followed by W. T.
Scott, who made a strong speech favoring
the resolutions, but said nothing that could
prevent it from being construed into any
thing but a stalwart Republican oration. G.
W. Tanner followed with a few remarksafter
which the resolutions were voted on and
adopted without a dissenting voice.
The report of the committee appointed
to wait on Congressman Thomas was call2d
for and read by G. W. Tanner, chairman of
The report of the committee (which wo
did not obtain) was received as property of
the house ami Judge Bird came forward
and pointed out several mistakes made by
Thomas and read several letters he had re
ceived from him. The Judge also read
from the diary which he kept while at
Washington and spoke very freely about
the favors and situations tendered him by
Senator John Logan at and about the time
of his (Bird's) visit to Washington.
After Judge Bird had concluded, the
question at issue was: "Shall the state
ments of J. R. Thomas or the statements of
J. J. Bird be adopted." A motion was
made to adopt the statements of Thomas,
to which W. T. Scott olferod an amend
ment to the effect that all those words be
stricken out of it which referred to Bird
and that the promise made by Thomas be
adopted. R. Taylor offered a substitute,
re-committing the whole report. The sub
stitute was unanimously adopted and the
committA' instructed to inform J. R.
Thomas that his report is not satisfactory
to the colored voters in this section of Illi
nois. Tiiere being no further business to trans
act the meeting adjourned to meet at some
future time and organize under a constitu
