We are informed by those who have

authorities should have it closed at the
end in order to prevent accidents.

There is a professional nmn in our city
who lately became a father. His little dar
ling would at times Interrupt the train o
thought that was always running through
his logical brain. How to quiet the child
was as much a study for him as to solve
the fifteen puzzle. The child wanted some
thing to play with, so ho took a badge trom
his manly bosom and pinned it to tho
bosom of the little infant, and from that
moment it never cried again.' With its
tiny hands it would fondle the little gift
and then would express its happiness by
smiles and frolics that sent a thrill of joy
to the fond mother's heart. It is, perhaps,
unnecessary to add that it was a Hancock
and English badce.
At last a postmaster who has a con
science has been discovered. He is boss of
a little postothce in South Carolina, and ho
refuses to deliver mail on Sunday because
he has conscientious scruples against doing
any kind of business ou the Sabbath day.
The postmaster general wrote him a per
emptory letter, directing him to deliver the
mail every day in the week or resign. The
poor fellow has asked for thirty days in
which to decide whether he will obey his
conscience or the postmaster general, and
his request has been granted. He is cer
tainly a man after Hayes' own4heart, and it
is not easy to understand how the president
can consent to dispense with the services of
such a goody-goody man.
The Democratic campaign is booming
in every part of the state. The candidates
have made a preliminary move all along
the line, and are now ready to begin active
operations. The ball will be opened &t
Belleville August 30, with a grand mass
ciecting, at which time and place all the
state candidates will be present. Hon. Ly
man Trumbull, our candidate fcr governor,
will deliver his first speech at this time. He
and all the rest of the state ticket
will also be at Shawneetown on the 1st
ot September. On September 3rd the
grand rally of the campaign will be
made at DuQuoin. It is intended to make
this a monster demonstration, and no efforts
and no pains or expense will be spared to
make it such. The next meeting will be
held at Centralia, September 4th, the fol
lowing day. It is hoped that the Demo
crats in all the surrounding counties and
towns of the places above named will at
tend these grand meetings. Democrats
should go individually, and, when possible,
ia organized bodies and in uniform. Ar
rangements will be made for reduced rail
road rates, and since the campaign is upon
us, we say again, let every Democrat go,
and let those Ik-publicans, who desire to be
in good company, go too.
Among numerous efforts m other di
rections tending to render railroad travel
free from all disagrecablcness, the Illinois
Central Railroad company have, for Bome
time past, endeavored to remedy the evil ot
black smoke. They have tried various
means of preventing the black coal smoke
from issuing frnm the chimney of the en
gine to the discomfort of passengers. But
their efforts were in vain. A short time
ago, however, they submitted the
case to the national board of engineers,
o referred it to a committee
posed of men well versed in everything
pertaining to an engine. r.iese took the
question under careful consideration and
decided that the chief cause of this evil was
in the careless firing of the engine. They
rendered a report according to this decision
in which they discussed the manner of fir
ing an engine and the results, aud claimed
that the issuing of black smoke from the
stack could almost be entirely prevented
by special care in firing.
Tho company has adopted this report and
has given special instructions to firemen on
engines running passenger trains, to comply
with the requirements of said report. Fire
men on freight engines are an exception to
this rule because their trains arc wholly too
heavy to admit of such care on the part of
The candidacy ot Mr. Hartzell insures
success to the Democracy of this district as
certainly, and even more so, than if Heil
inan were in his place. Mr. Hartzell was
the first choico of Cairo and the entire
party, with a very small exception ; but,
of course, this decided preference for him,
did not debar his supporters from favoring
any other man just as good as himself if
the convention saw fit to ask it. That
Heilman was equal to Hartzell, in nearly
every particular, can not be denied and
that Hartzell is equal to Heilmau, ditto.
The only difference between the two, and
which favors Hartzell, is, that he has giveu
evidence of his popularity and ability to
carry the district by actually having done so,
and at a time too, when his party had not
such brilliant hopes of certain success as
it has now. This evidence Mr. Heilmau
has not given, although there is no
doubt that, uftcr the election, he would
have squared with Hartzell even in this
particular. Looking at the matter in Its
proper light, we can see no reason for Dem
ocratic disappointment nor Republican joy.
Mr. Hartzell's election is too certain an
event of tho near future to leavo any just
ground for either. He will, as he has done
before, unlto all factions aud call forth the
full strength of his own party, because
they know that if they do but their duty
to themselves ho will load them to success
aud because he has beea faithful to tho
trusts reposed in him ia the past. But,
aside , lrom this, ho will rally around tho
Democratic standard hosts of Germans and
independent voters, who recognizo his
worth above any man that could be placed
before them on the Republican ticket, and
whose respect and admiration for him will
not permit them to withhold their support.
Mr. Hartzell'8 work iu congress stands in
marked contrast to that of Thomas, who,
with ono exception, never by word or deed,
gave his constituents any reason to believe
that they were at ull represented. This
exception was when he mado
himself notoriously ridiculous by
a rautankcous harangue in which ho
spoke of "hurling Democrats from tho bat
tlements of heaven into the fiery abyss be
low, etc., etc." Mr. Hartzell did not, and
will not waste his timo in drawing his sala
ry from the public treusury and in disgust
ing the sensible portion of tho peoplo with
such stuff. Afld ho could not if he would.
His inborn honor nnd good common sense
would not permit hi in to do so.
Furthermore, his general reputation
is as freo from reproach
as is his public career. He will not, in the
course of his canvass, disgrace himself and
shame his party by ungentlemanly behav
ior and by giving utterance to foul stories ;
nor will he be dogged all over the district
by affidavits from citizens with whom he
has had dealings, setting forth that he has,
in any capacity, directly or indirectly,
swindled the deponent out of a sum of
money which he had been empowered to
collect for said deponent. Mr. Hartzell, we
say. will not be compelled to dodge
such documents, but will, with a conscious
ness of his own integrity and the purity of
his life, both in word and deed, face any
audience and maintain that dignity in act
and speech which has secured to him the
respect of friend and foe alike.
a reply to the news.
The editor of the News publishes in
last Saturday's issue an editorial in which
ho discants upon the doctrine of state su
premancy or sovereignty. He asserts that
article ten of the amendments to the
national constitution, which says that "the
powers not delegated to the United States
by the constitutior,nor prohibited by It to the
states, are reserved to the state respectively,
or to the people" he asserts that this
article proves that sovereignty lies with the
national government. In proof of
this assertion he enummerates the powers
delegated to the national government and
exclaims that they are all attributes of sov
ereignty, while those reserved to the states
and to the people have not that quality.
"In fact the national government," he says,
"creates the state and certainly the creature
is not greater than the creator," and con
cludes with the Btrange exclamation: "This
doctrine of state sovereignty is in flat con
tradiction of the constitution of the Unit
ed States. It is absurd, for it makes a
part greater than the whole; and, worst of
all, it is the infamous parent of the doc
trine of secession.1'
The only true manner of arriving at the
correct meaning of any law, is to go back
to the time of its passage and consider the
meaning that was attached to it by its
authors. The article above referred to was
among the first amendments made after the
constitution had been adopted, and it was
made because it was thought that the na
tional government had attempted to intrude
upon the rights of the people of the
several states. I will not now say that it
was intended to rccoguize state sovereignty,
but that it did not intend to recognize na
tional sovereignty is plainly seen from its
every line; lor it is nothing more or less
than a positive affirmation that the powers
of the national government are limited to
those actually enumerated in the constitu
tion, and that all powers not expressly dele
gated to it "are reserved to the states, or to
the people." But again. The article just
preceding this says: "The enumeration in
the constitution, of certain rights, shall not
be construed to deny or disparage others
retained by the people." That is to say, if
I understand correctly, that the rights ex
pressly delegated to the national govern
ment in the constitution, shall not serve as
an excuse for assuming others retained by
tho people. How else can this be inter
preted than that the powers constitutionally
possessed (aud enumerated by tho editor of
the News) shall not be a justification for as
suming the attribute of sovereignty? But if
it is to be assumed that the exercise of cer
tain powers constitutes sovereignty, then it
must be admitted that tho states are sov
ereignties; for they all possess and exercise
some sovereign powers.
But the editor's idea that the state is tho
creature of the national government and
and that the doctrine of stato sovereignty
is contrary to the constitution, absurd etc.
etc. is inconsistent with the facts
and not very complimentary to some of the
greatest statesman and constitutional law
yers the world has ever seen. Any one,
even though he has only a casual knowledge
ot our system of government, knows that
that so far from the national government
creating the states it is exactly the reverse.
The original thirteen states created the na
tional government, and it has since been
kept up aud modified by the states, until
bow it stands tho grandest system ot popu
lar government upon tho faco of tho earth.
But to prove still more conclusively that
the national government is, in fact, the
creature of the state government, let one
suppose that the peoplo of tho several
states refused to elect presidential electors
refused to send representatives to tho na
tional legislature and tho several state as
semblies refused to send senators, what
then would become of your national gov
ernment? Thus it will bo seen by all per
sons who have a correct knowledge of our
system of government that the states are
tho creators and are, according to the logic
of tho editor of tho News, tho sovereigns,
and, it would seem, have a right at any
time, to destroy their creature the nation
al government. That they had this right
that any or all of them could, under the
constitution, withdraw from the Union, was
admitted by nearly all the most learned
men of the country before the
war, including Lincoln, Greeley
and other illustrious Republicans.
Tho national government eminates from
the several stateand derives- its authority
from them. Tho peoplo of the several states
elect presidential electors, who create tho
executive branch of the Dational govern
ment. The people of the several states
elect representatives to tho national con
gress who form ono portion of the legisla
tive branch of the national government.
The legislatures of the several states, being
themselves elected by the people ot their
respective states, elect senators to the
national congress who from the other
portion of the legislative branch of the
national government and then conjointly
create the judicial branch. These three
i 'ranches constitute the national govern
ment, and are oound in all their acts by
tlie will of the people of the
viveral states as expressed in
.he national constitution, which is
i the supreme law of, the land. But this
question has been decided. The question
of the right of secession was submitted to
the arbitrament of the sword and the bayo
net; and the people of the country met upon
numerous battlefields, and there, with lead,
powder and steel, amid the clash of mus
ketry, the roar of cannon, the agonized
shrieks of the dying, and over the graves of
the dead, agreed that henceforth and for
ever the right of secession should be no
more, and that this union was a perpetual
one. But remember that in this contest
there were neither Nationals, Federal?,
Know-Nothings, Republicans nor Demo
crats. All party lines were ignored. The
people of this entire country were divided
into but two parties e.h honest in their
convictions viz: Unionists and disunion
ists. Tho former were in the majority
greatly in the majority-fand gamed the
victory, and now it is the duty of all who
Have the prosperity and harmony of the
country at heart, to bring about a Union in
spirit as it exists in law, by forgetting the
hatreds of the past, and accepting the
pleasures of the present, and hoping for a
glorious future. J.

A letter was received at the Democratic
National commute on the 4h of August
from V. E. Albright, of Slurphysboro, in
which the writer says: "We are going to
carry the state of Illinois. We have a very
strong state ticket, and Hancock and Eng
lish, especially the' former are very popular.
Loan is getting bis Indivn blood cooled
down." This, doubtless, is the reason why
Logan did not want reporters present at tho
Republican conference meeting in New
York City on the 5th of August. He said: '

Lewis B. Parsons, the Democratic candi
date for lieutenant-governor of Illinois,
has receutly been making a canvass of this
state, and, in giving the result of his obser
vations to the national Democratic commit
tee, he says: "We have now been in eight
congressional districts and have seen repre
sentative men from over fifty counties. We
find the universal tone better than we ex
pected or ventured to hope for. Never
since 1840 have wo seen the like of it and
then it was on the other side. Every
where there is hope, enthusiasm and deter

ability to carry the national ticket,
and the feeling is becoming general that
we can elect our stato ticket and will fight

ing into line largely, while the Republican
greenbackers hold on to the greeuback
party. In Southern Illinois wo shall not
suffer from that. Again, tho youijg men
are largely coming to us; I mean those who
will cast their first voto this loll. Clubs '
are rapidly forming in large numbers. Wo
have, present company excepted, tho best
possible state ticket. We think we can
get out many more than the Republicans
of the vote not out in 1870.
