There is one big straw in the present

Tho News says that tho peoplo do not

Another illict distillery has been dis

it in the single State of Illinois than in the
combined moonshining districts of the

A showman, well-dressed and very

claims that he beat her out of a considerable

some seventy odd dollars and a gold watch.
He will have a hearing this morning.
Mr. Bernard McMannus informs us

A gentleman writing from Nebraska
City, says that he had three brothers in
the Union army. One was killed at Fort
Donelson, another crippled for life in the

Sherman to the sea. He adds that it he
had been old enough he would have been
one of the "boys in bule" also. The letter
concludes as follows: "The thought of such
a man as Garfield reaping a reward from a
country that has cost a drop of my brothers'
blood seems past eudurancu."

that ho had just boon taken to the polico

Wo have beforo us a circular letter,
dated, "Headquarters Republican Central
Committee, Eighteenth Congressional Dis
trict, Cairo, Ills., September 24,1880,"
which is signed by Daniel Hogan, member
State Central Committee, nnd C. N. Hughes,
Chairman Congressional Committee. Tho
circular, after stating that "you, no doubt,
in common with all tho Republicans all
over tho State, feel tho importance of uinin
taining Republican ascendency in tho Eigh
teenth Congressional District by the ro
election of John R. Thomas," says that ow
ing to various causes Mr. T is prevented
from making a very active canvass and then
concludes thusly: ''In view ot this con
dition of affairs, it behooves Republicans to
assume an unusual activity lu behalf of our
Congressional ticket, and cuter fully into
that active but quiet work that insures vic
tory. Our majority must bo increased, and
in order to do this, will you not as a Repub
lican and patriot appoint yourself a com
mittee of ono and work work until tho
polls close tho 2d of November t Tho party
looks to you for aid and assistance. Every
Republican has a duty to perform, aud in
view of the misfortunes of Hon. John R.
Thomas, wo know that you will cheerfully
devoto your attention to his interests,
which, indeed, aro tho interests of tho Re
publican party." The necessity of sending
out circulars ot tho above character argues
that tho leaders of tho party aro fearful that
tho Democrats will carry this district.
Although the salo of intoxicants aro
strictly forbidden in Carbondale, cider
drunks have flourished there luxuriantly of
late. In fact, so numerous have theso
drunks bcconio that the good people have
been aroused from their stupor thereby,
and have put down their toot upon it by
forcing the authorities to pass an ordinance
forbidding tho sale of cider. In this con
nection we desire to mention but ono fact.
It is this: that while the Democratic Con
gressional convention was in session in that
city, intoxicants of any kind not even
strong tea or coflee could be obtained for
love or a steamboat. Tho fact is that tho
good influeuco the grand patriots exerted,
who were thcro assembled, prevented even
the most ungodly of Carbondale 's Republi
cans from selling or "giving away" that
fluid which Brother Reynolds terms "tho
devil's kindling wood." This being so, it
stands to reason that what the good peoplo
of that burg need, as a remedy, is not
an ordiuance torbidding tho sale of "the
kindling wood" aforesaid, but a more abun
ant crop of God-fearing and temperance
loving Democrats, which may be procured
from anywhere on short notice.
Since the results of the Muiuc election
have become definitively known Republi
can office-holders in Cairo and elsewhere
seem to have collapsed iu the apathy of
despair, realizing that the four years that
they have eaten the dishonest bread of
fraud are nearly ended, and that the great
majority that elected Tilden will now
stearnly demand a vacation, under the man
agement of Hancock, of all their
places. Then we may hope for civil service
reform, tor no matter how great may bo the
rapacity for place and office among the
Democrats, it will bo impossible for them,
lacking as they are in experience, to fill
the departments witli as many useless in
competent supernumeraries as have held
place and drawn piy in every department
of the government sinco the war. If the
people of this country could only know tho
immense sums they are paying to thousands
of "elegant loafers," who do not work thir
ty minutes per day, civil service reform
would be forced into prominence over all
other issues. If, when the Democrats come
in, they shall show the same ingenuity as
Republicans have shown in making useless
offices and bureaus, appointing incompetent
men to fill them, andappoiuting staffs of
incompetent assistants, male and female, to
help the chiefs do nothing, The Bulletin
will join tho opposition with joy.
At about two o'clock yesterday after
noon a negro rouster named Andrew Young,
who has off and on made Cairo his stop
ping place for sometime, was shot through
the right lung by tho second clerk of tho
Pans C. Brown, while she was
at our wharf. From reliable parties
who saw the entire affair we learn
that the clerk was chasing
a negro one of the crew of his boat
across tho wharf when Young, who was
sitting on the railing of the stage with his
hands in his pockets, addressed the clerk
saying: "You d d white of a you
can't run me as you did that other fellow."
The clerk replied: "I don't want to have
anything to do with you, but you must not
fool with me or I will run you the same
way," upon this the darkey arose and with a
knife iu his hand advanced upon the clerk,
who thou reached towards his back pocket
ami warned him to come no further
or he would shoot him,
but tho negroe continued to
advance, when tho clerk drew his pistol
and fired upon him three times, the last
shot only taking effect. The negro was
then assisted to tho house of an old colored
woman ou Washington avenue, below Sixtli
street, whero Dr. Leach probed tho wound,
but failed to find tho ball. Shortly after
the shooting Officer Hogan boarded tho
boat with a warrant for tho arrest of tho
clerk, but failed to find him. Tho negro
was iu a critical condition last night.
Capt. Thos.W. Shields, who returned

long Republicans, and had sustained that
party in nearly all its more important ob-
jectsj but that its first principles had been
abandoued, and instead of the ptescntation
of any public policy that would tend to
produce a union in spirit as well as in law
among the people ot tlie entire country,
its leaders had for a number of years con
fined themselves to a policy that would
keep alive the tires of sectional hatred be
tween the people of the south and of the
north, and sought by misrepresentations,
villifications and generally dishonest means
to keep up a feeling of antagonism be
tween these two sections of country, for the
sole purposoof keeping themselves in power.
He was tired, nc said in substance, ot this
sort of campaign liteiaturc, for he knew
that it was all a tissue of base falsehoods,
used as political capital to gain selfish ends.
He believed the people of the south did not
merit the vile slanders that were uttered
against them, and that he could no longer
feel at home in a party that had unwar
ranted abuse and bitter hatred for a people
that havo suffered all the terrors of war
and of gross misrule. He believed that
tho people of the south should be treated
with the respect and consideration to which
every law-abiding citizen of the United
States, irrespective of race, previous condi
tion or pevious political opinion, was enti
tled, and failing to find the spirit of recon
ciliation and friendship in the Republican
party he felt it his duty to abandon it. His
two sons, he said, who had also been life
long Republicans, would follow his exam

of a change of his political faith, the

at his request) lead Gen. Banning to his
factory, where ono hundred and twenty
five employes were at work and introduced
him to the men, telling them at the same
time, that he would hereafter vote the
Democratic ticket and recommended that
they do likewise if their consciences would
permit it. One of them spoke up, saying
that if his (the proprietor's) interests de
manded it he would do so; to which the
latter replied that ho did not wish the case
put in that way. "It is true," sai i he, "my
interests arryour interests. The wares, I

IK HEADACHE !
The whole country is looking with in
tense interest towards Indiana. Not so
much with anxiety to know which party
will receive the majority in that state, for
it is now certain the Democrats will carry
the 6tate, but the country is anxious to
know how badly the Republican party
will be defeated there. As the day of
election approaches the campaign on the
part of the Democrats waxes more an J
more enthusiastic. The excitement is
unparalleled. A grand mass meeting of
the Democrats of the entire state will be
held at Indianapolis, October 5th, one week
before the election. It is to be the great
culminating effort of the state campaign,
which is to lead in the victory of this year,
which is to restore the government to the
Democratic party nf the country. It will
be a mass convention of the people and the
soldiers and sailors of Indiana who favor
the election of Hancock, English and Lan
ders, and desire that economy, reconcilia
tion and the Union shall return in fact ss
well as in name. The following disting- ,
uished Democratic statesmen aud soldiers
have been invited to attend: Ex Governor
