Geueral McClernand is trying to im
press the country with the idea that he de
vised tbe "march to the sea" which Sher
man executed. McClernand is giving him
self unnecessary trouble. Just now the
people care no more about tho question of
who devised the "march to the sea" than
they do about tho question, "who struck
Billy Patterson?" The question which they
are interested in at present is : Who are
going to enjoy the hundred thousand offices
after the 4th of March next?
Tho Ureenbackers will hold a mass
meeting at the court house this and to-mor

will be lighted with gas and being other
wise a pleasant place, the people will enjoy
the entertainment to be furnished them
there. The speakers, especially Mr. Win
ter, ate known to be men of no small tal
ents, And hence what they may have to say
in support of their doctrines will, no doubt,
prove interesting to all who may hear them.
Hon. T. W. Halliday has not an
nounced himself for tho office of county

is not a man in tho county who ha dono so
much for its people, or will in tho future
do as much for them as Mr. Halliday, and
since tho people know that lie is altogether
too valuable a man to be spared trom the
board ho will bo overwhelmingly elected
even though ho make no effwrt himself.
A Tooth carpenter, who monopolized
the business of pegging tho teeth of the
little town of Wunson, Wisconsin, blew out
rt)io brains of another tooth carpenter
day or two ago, becauso tho latter visito
the same town to solicit business. The
Bulletin is glad that this tragedy occurred
in the highly civilized state of Wisconsin
rather than in one ot tho southern states
Had it occurred down south it would have
been heralded throughout tho country as
another southern outrage. We are happy
to announce to our thousands of readers
that the tooth carpenters are at liberty to
movo around, where they please, and to
plug "ad libitum" in the sunny south.
Was it Joe Robarts1 intention to bull

ing tho remark, and if it was his intention
to bulldoze them wo have but to ask will
the intelligent colored men heed such
twaddle and vote as so many cattlo because
a big bellied bully bites his lips, trowns
majestically, stands on tip too and while
waving a red bandanna, exclaims in a so
norous voice: "Report them to me I" the
villains, if they refuso to bo our tools?
John Breln, tho defaulting treasurer of
tho Ancient Order of Hibernians who was
lately brought back to this city from Kan
sas City by Mr. Mike O'Donnel, and who
now languishes in the county jail, was yes
terday morning visited by several of tho
prominent members of the Order and asked
to give up tho money. He was in no very
communicative mood; said he did not have
tho money, but refused to tell what ho had
done with it. Apparently he has no con
ception of tho enormity of his crime and
rests easy under the impression that his at
torneys will succeed in so manipulating
matters in his favor as to clear him.
Capt. Thos. W. Shields, who has been
indefatigable in his efforts to have the boys
recognized in this campaign, has now com
pleted arrangements for organizing and
equipping the youngsters. He desires
them to meet him in the hall of the Roost
ers to-night, where and when all prelimina
ries will be arranged, and if poss
ible, complete organization effected.
We would urgo the boys to turn out in full
force and encourage the captain in his dis
interested work by giving him a rousing
meeting. All boys below tweny-one years
are expected to be present and nceive a
torch and uniform.
Officer Lally yesterday morning took
charge of a colored woman on Twenty
eighth street, who has for some time been
wandering about the upper portion of town
making herself generally objectionable by
her crazy behavior, and locked her in the
county jail. She is said to be in a really
pitiable state of (mind, and is suffering a
measure of distress the like of which no
bodily ill can produce. A continual pain
ful struggle between the convictions of rea
son and the suggestions of disease are ap
parent, and her mind is constantly tor
mented by the dread of approaching
calamity which causes her to sing and pray
and call upon God for assistance. She will
have tho early attention ot the court.
The frail inmates of several of the
down town castles of iniquity yesterday ap
peared before Justice Olmsted, on the order
of OlEcer Dunker, to answer to the charge
of being inmates of houses of ill-fame.
They were eleven in number and seven of
these, remembering Brother Comings, took
a change of venue to him, and as they
gracefully entered the august presence of
that worthy he rubbed his
hands, bowed, smiled and joked
and, finally, leaning back in bis chair and
placing his spectacles aright on his nose,
called the court to order and left the im
pression on those present that he would be
a wise man were he not otherwise. The
women being asked what they had to say
to the charge replied that they were guilty,
and this being the case, the Squire could
do naught else but fine them as the law di
rects, which he accordingly did. The four
women who failed to take an appeal from
Judge Olmsted's court were each fined ten
dollars aud costs making a total of thir
Not very long ago perhaps a week or
two Joe Robarts delivered a speech in this
aunty at Simon Marshal's, in which he
said to the colored brethren present, while
he raised himself on tip-toe, "I want every
man of you to vote the straight Republican
ticket and I want every man of you to
make it his business to see to it that his
neighbor does the same thing and if any ot
your neighbors or acquaintances do not
vote the ticket straight I want you to re
port them to mk." We have it from an
intelligent colored man, who was in the au
dience, that Robarts used the exact words
above attributed to him, and that ho laid
particular stress upou it, that any colored
man who dared to be man enough to
scratch the Itepublican ticket should be
reported to him. And what if they
do scratch the ticket and auk reported to
him. What will tho great Joe do about it?
There are those who believe that in that
case he will return them into slavery or will
afllict them with poverty, disease or even
death. It is possible that Joo will do all
this, but it is hardly probable. We do not
believe that he could find it in his heart to
bo so cruel, and are inclined to believe that
the remark was the result of a full stom
ach and an empty head.
Monday tho grand conclave of Knights
Templars was Initiated at Chicago by a
parade that was the grandest spectacle wit
Bussed in this country since tho armies of
the United States passed in review before
the president at Washington after tho great
civil war. Tho latest St. Louis papers,
which wo Inve beforo us at tho present
writing, estimate that twenty thous
and men will be in line, and that
five hundred thousand spoctntors two hi'u
dred thousand from other cities and Btatos
of tho Union will lino the streets as witnesses
of a most imposing pageant. Liberal and
generous in all things tho pooplo of tho
great metropolis of tho northwoit havo at
immense expense decorated their
streets and their houses and tendered a wel
come to tho Templars that rivals the out
pouring tide of joy that characterized tho
citizens of ancient Rome when they opened
tho gates to their victorious legions. But
AUGUST 18, 1880.
the Templars enter Chicago not as victors
on bloody fields, whero all the passions have
looso rein and whero civilization is ruthless
ly put aside to mako way for all that
is brutal and vicious in human nature. They
cntor as the advance guard and representa
tives of a great army, whoso recruits aro
advancing every night, in all tho cities of
the world, by steps known only to tho ini
tiate to tho attainment of that self-control
which is the sign and syml).)l of truo man
hood, ond to a placo on the level whereon
from tho prince to the humblest worker for
daily bread all stand equal in tho light of
tho ever-living God. Ignoring all national
lines, all creeds, all orders, rendering unto
Ca'sar tho things that that bo Ca:3ar's tbe
soldiers of the great army of Masonry rever
ently give all praise to the Great Architect,
by whoso power all things aro and may be.
On him they rest as on a foundation against
which nothing can prevail. And their con
fidence is well placed. Their, order has
survived from hoary antiquity. Emerging
from tho night of time, when Egypt
was in her glory, thousands of years
ago, it has survived nations, dynasties and
creeds to shine more lustrously in our day,
and to be more useful as a restraint upon
human passion than any other moral
agency 6ave the church itself. It upholds
all the virtues. It teaches sobriety and
patriotism: it encourages piety but dis
countenances bigotry and prejudice; it
teaches a common humanity, and it scouts
caste, class, office, wealth and power; and
it inculcates a stern morality with self-discipline
and obedience. In the desert and
on the battle-field, on land and at sea, its
signs and symbols have brought the succor
of a brotherly hand enemies have been
found friends such is its magic power in
composing national prejudice. It has been
found no less potent in preventing personal
difficulties. Its power is co-extensive with
earthly limits. Its lectures are delivered
in almost every tongue, and its precepts are
sacred to men of all nations. It is the only
humane organization that can claim to be
universal and catholic. The tried and true
are welcomed in all its sanctuaries- the in
grate and betrayer can bear no heavier pun
ishment than those which it in
flicts and which ard, published in
every part of the world. Origi
nating at a time no man can tell, Masonry
is in sympathy with all the great, useful
and beneficial movements of modern life,
and the study and contemplation of its les
sons are an incentive to the highest and
noblest of this and other lands. Its ad
vance army is, therefore, worthy the greet
ing it received at Chicago day before yes
terday; it is worthy the acclaim that was
made, of the joy and gladness that sur
rounded it and of the plaudits that echoed
for hours from hands and hearts that know
of it only at the firesides, in homes made
better by its benign influences. Its victo
ries are peaceful, are more renowned than
those of war. Its sway is over the heart
and its power is felt in subduing the pas
sions. It leaves men better than it finds
them. Peace, content and joy arc its ben
edictions, and they rest on many house
holds that would not know them otherwise.
The soldiers of so great, so grand a moral
agency are not only worthy the welcome
they met with in Chicago, they are worthy
of welcomes wherever they may go, wher
ever they may plant their banner and bare
their invincible shields. They ere con
querors over themselves.
About noon, yesterday, while standing
near the House we were a quiet and
unobserved listener to the following con
versation of a party of three :
First Cairoite (Picking up peach
stones.) "Gentlemen where these seed have
produced as fine peaches as those wo have
just eaten; I'll send you a liberal supply,
if I can find you."
Stranger "You will find me about 38."5
miles from here."
First Cuiroite "What direction?"
Stranger -(Who had ono wooden leg)
"About twenty mil;9 from Chicago on shoro
of Lake Michigan."
Second Cairoito (For Garfield) "You
have no Hancock men up there, have you?"
First Coiroite (For Hancock) "But they
must be changing very fast. I'll venture
there will be plenty next November.
Stranger "Well, I'll tell you, out of
345 voters in our little town there are just
Second Cairoite (laughing at first)
"That shows the feeling in tho north. I've
told you so."
Stranger "Well, you see ours is a rail
road town and one man works all the men
there, and ho tulls them how to vote and
they do it. He's paid to do it and they
must. There aro only two families who
don't voto with him. Why there's a town
ship near us that rotes 495 solid votes one

"Tho timo and noble science of politics is
even tho very chief of sciences," says Mat
thew Arnold, in a recent essay.
To this we will assent, as the comprehen
sion and promulgation of solid political
principles are essential to the preservation
of our liberties. In examining gomo of the
motives and assertions of tho Republican
leaders to perpetuate their party in power,
all intelligent men must disapprove of tho
recent methods adopted. Thus, oa tho
sixth inst., Governor Cullora, General Sher
idan and others, honored Galesburg with
their presence, to witness the Bham battle
fought between tho Union and rebel forces.
After a severe contest tho con
federates unconditionally surrendered.
This is as it should bo, however, had this
taken place In the south, under the obser
vation of the governor of Louisiana and
some of the Into confederate officers.and tho
result of the battle been reversed, the
comments elicited from the Radical press
can be surmisod. If it was necessary for
the purpose of eclat, to designate the op
posing forces, would it not have
shown better taste to have chosen any
other people but our own to mock them
with the triumphs of victory? The shades
of the brave departed protest against tho
mimicry of taunting a brave but deluded
people. Hatred and contumely,
like the sacred l fire of the
vestal Virgins, will not be
permitted to die. In this as in
ether matters we can learn from the past.
When the ancient Greeks fought against
.ach other the victors were not permitted
to construct trophies ot a substantial value
on the field of battle, which wa3 only to
ast for seven years, whereas their foreign
conquests have been commemorated by
monuments that arc a study to the historian
and a model to tho artist of the present
Mr. Schurz in his Indianapolis speech
contends that there should be no chango
in public officers without cause. To this
we may say that the Republican party, like
Louis the XIV of France, considers it
self the state and it has
been held as a maxim by monarchical
writers that "the king can do no wrong."
The late very able political and economi
cal writer, Mr. Bagebrat, in his work on the
British constitution, observes that to con
fine public offices amongst particular per
sons form a bureaucracy, relatives filling a
subordinate position under the chief, and
this continued without intermission until
public places and duties becomes multi
plied and complicated; which results in
the formation of a distinct class in society.
This evil has become so great ih Germany
that Professor Van Schulte in
liis article in tho March number
of the Contemporary Review entitled
"Buraaucracy in Germany and Austra-
Hungary," taking Prussia as being the
greatest German state, estimates that "with
a population of 23,742,404, the proportion
of officers is I to 523."
The impossibility of having a party cor
rect the faults generated within itself can
be fairly illustrated by citing as an instance
the old U. 8. bank under Jackson's admin
istration. The commission appointed to
investigate the affairs of that institution dis
covered jthat one of the officials received a
compensation ureatly in excess of the sal
ary to which he was entitled. The commis
sion was told in explanation that this meth
od was adopted to make good an amount
he had overdrawn and could not replace.
Now, should a functionary in the Republi
can party attempt to correct existing abuse,
he could be likened unto tho Australian
bushman who cut the limb upon which he
wasj-iupportcd from the tree. Did not Sec
retary Bristow place himself in this predica
ment? John Halifax,
