The statement is daily made in all the
Republican papers that tho southern re
bellion has ucver been put down, but is to
day in active operation. Voters in the
Republican party should take note of this
statement, for it i9 very certain that if the
Republican narty can not put down a re
bellion in twenty years it certainly is unfit
to govern this great republic. That is self
evident. If there is rebellion in the south
ern states Hancock will put it down with
out ceremony. Let us have a party in
power which can restore the Union in every
sense of the word.
A dispatch to the St. Louis Republi

II. Olwrly, Democratic nominee for secre
tary of state, delivered a powerful and
elaborate address to a vastaudience in the
courtyard. Mr. Obcrly's speech was the
first ever made by him in tne county, and
he made by his effective remarks a telling
impression upon the masses."

the favor of all lovers of amusement. The
Colonel has engaged a large troupe of the
best artists in their particular spheres that
could be fouud, and the performances will
be of the highest character. Besides every
thing else that could add to tho beauty and
completeness of the boat, the Colonel
has adopted the electric light,
which will add considerably to its attrac
tiveness. The first performance will be
given at Mound City on next Tuesday.
Mr. Celey, one of the members of Gen

Haskell at his (Haskell's) solicitation, ob
taining a promise trom mm mat me
money should bo returned at a given time.
But the promise was not kept, and although
Mr. Celey repeatedly demanded his money,
it was not forthcoming and he finally felt
himself compelled to use threats in order to
obtain his own. He had seen enough to
justify him in the belief that General Has
kell was not what he at first believed him
:o be, and, while iu Paducah, became
thoroughly distrusted with him. He con-
luded to leave Haskell and, by threaten
ing to expose him to the people of that
mrg, succeeded in getting fifteen dollars oi
his money. He reports that the "army" is
about to disband, and thus end the career
of General Haskell, as the champiou savior
of souls and, at the same time, the creature

The Argus last night proclaimed the
fact at great length, and in a manner cal
culated to deceive the public, that the in
dictment found against officers Hogan and
Hheehan by the grand jury at the spring
term of the circuit court was "quashed.'' It
is true, the indictment was quashed, as
everybody, including tho grand jury and
state's attorney, know it would be. The
iVrgus says that a "i.aikie number of per-
sons were examined by the grand jury, and
as many ns possible, if not all
tub various reports of crookedness
against these men were invest!
(rated." Tho fact is that the
"large" number of persons who were ex
amined by the grand jury was very small
ami that, owing to a lack of time, the
thought of Investigating "all"' tho rumors
ot crookedness against these officers never
entered tho heads ot the grand jurors, as
tho editor of the Argus can ascertain from
them by personal inquiry. But in its over
anxiety to patch up tho reputation of these
men, and with a desire to still further im
prest tlko matter on tho public, the Argus
dwelln upon it at length, and, with a view
of cover! ug the whole ground, attempts to
give a description of tho complaints against
the men, saying that they were "old
as well as new " and then speculates upon
the prnlmblo time consumed by the jury
in the investigation of the charges, and by
the remark that "two or morr days of tli
gtnnd jury's time was occupied lahi:i.y
on this case, tries to leave the Impression
that all the charges were at length and
tiiorocoiily investigated. Having gone
so far, the editor of tho Argus, unable to
longer contain himself, becomes so enthu
siastic in his defense of tlieso characters
as to exclaim : "The jury was composed of
men who would certainly do their duty J
well in the premises, being composed ot
tho solidest men of the city and county,"
and then winds up with tho flourish that
"of all the complaints brought only one
had a bemblance of a case in it, etc." All
this will appear very much out of place
and very ridiculous to the grand jurors and
to all our people, who knew from the start
that tho indictment would be quashed, but
who hoped that it would havo the desired
affect and make tho officers more careful
as to their dealings in the
future. In trying to give a inolc-hill the
appearance of a mountain, tho Argus is
again up to its old tricks, which may be
profitable to it, but which is hardly the
thing people of Cai ro rel ish . We d esi re to do
Messrs. Hogan aud Shechan justice as well
as all other men, but hardly think it the
proper thing to over zealously, and without
cause, whitewash the characters of men of
The Republicans of this county are
thoroughly demoralized. They have re
sorted to all possible means for strengthen
ing their party, and now that they see all
their efforts will prove fruitless, they are
sad and discouraged and about to give up
the fight. It comes to us quite straight
that Mr. Chas. Nellis hits expressed his re
gret over his action in accepting the nomi
nation for sheriff," and were it not
tor the fact that he would incur
the displeasure of many of his Re
publican frieuds, he would withdraw from
the canvass at this late day. The
chances for the election of Mr. dieeve to
circuit clerkship have also diminished to
a wonderful extent during the past five
weeks. In fact Mr. Reeve has reason to
feel very uneasy over the slimness of his
chances and he does feel uneasy, and as a
result, melancholia has taken possession
ofhismiud. He has quit kissing dark
hued babies for the purpose of maintaining
the uuiou of these states; has quit whistling
"Oh, dem colden slippers;" and his limbs
have forgotten their cunning and
refuse to dance their usual jig?.
All this we regret to see. We regret to see
it because Mr. Reeve is, as the saying
goes, "a great good fellow," and being such
we expect to see him repent after November
and join the party of reform. So far as
Mr. Damron is concerned, he has of late, in
his candid moments, acknowledged that he
never entertained any hope of being elected
and that he only sought the nomination in
order to increase his popularity in this com
munity. There is but one man on the ticket
who honestly believes that he will be elec
ted, and he is tho most unpopular of them
all. We refer to old man Marshal, the
coflin-uiaker, who is seeking the coroner's
position. But even he is candid enough to
admit that all the other candidates on the
Republican county ticket will meet with
certain defeat in November.
Senator Wade Hampton made a very
good point with regard to the solid south
in his New York speech. He wanted to
know why the Republicans did not see as
much danger in the solid south, when it
was absolutely solid for the Republican
party, as they do now, when it is solidly
Democratic. Not many years ago every
southern state was Republican, and all the
officials, both state and national, were Re
publicans. If it is dangerous for any sec
tion of the couutry to be united in support
of any political party, tho danger was the
same when tho South was Republican as
tt is now when it Is Democratic. It doesn't
appear, however, that the Republican party
had any fears that the country would be
ruined by a Republican solid South, and
it is difficult to see why that party should
predict tho destruction of tho country and
other terrible evils because the solid South
has become Democratic. As Senator
Hampton says, the South is not solid
against the Union, the constitution or the
North. It is solid only against the Repub
lican party. If the South were solid be
cause of its adherence to some principle or
policy that was hostile to the constitu
tion or the interests of the North, or
that threatened to disturb the peaco and
prosperity of tho country, the Republican
party would have some cause for attempt
ing to excite alarm about tho solid south.
But the south is not advocating or support
ing anything that is inimical to any other
section, or to the constitution of tho coun
try. The southern people, in their object
and aims, are iu sympathy with a very large
portion of the people of tho north. In their
views relative to the manner in which the
government should bo administered they
are in harmony with tho majority of the
people of the country as sliowu by tho pop
ular vote of 1870, and as will be Bhown in
in 1880. Tho outcry of tho Republicans,
therefore, about the solid south is made for

AN INTERESTING EPISTLE FROM
AN OLD CAIKOITE.
Editor Cairo Bulletin.
Chicaoo, Sept., 27, 1880.
"Oh bear me away on your snowy wings
To my eternal home."
As I sit down to pen The Bulletin a
bhort epistle from this busy city, the lines
above come floating on the air in tones of
sadness. I never hear it now without think
ing of Burklow, the murderer, who was
hanged at Vienna, Johnson, couuty, August
1879. The words quoted were the last he
ever heard on earth, the rope having been
cut just as the words "eternal home" were
pronounced by the minister and singers
who were present. But it is a glorious
song for all that.
I did not, however, intend such a be
ginning and I don't know now, how this
matter will end, but I do know that the
weather for the past two or three weeks, in
this city, has been comparatively pleasant,
although if Vennor is correct, we shall
"catch it" in October. I have been so busy
since my arrival, in trying t get ready to
live, that I have paid but little attention
to passing events.
Business in this city is rushing, and
promi ies to be enormous this autumn. The
political pot is beginning to boil pretty
lively, although there is nothing
like the activity shown in Alex
ander county. The Democrats nomi
nated then county ticket yesterday, and the
Republicans will hold their county con
vention on the 5th of October. As the new
census gives Chicago suilicient population
tor four more judges, there will be any
number of aspirants in parties of judicial
houses as soon as Governor Cullom shall
order their election.
Much interest is felt in this city over the
approaching Indiana election. A good
deal of the managing by both parties is
done here. Both are confident, but I look
to see the Democrats' triumph
in that Stale only to lose
it in November. With the lights before
me I still incline to tho opinion that Gar
field will be elected president.
Amusements are "All tho Rage" here,
or were a few days ago. Emma Abhotti
and Brignoli, Robson aud Crane, Kv'euo
Rice's Surprise Party and Dcntnan Thomp
son ore all here, and Lawrence Barrett will
be here the first week in October. I got
in last night and weut to hear Denman
Thompson, and laughed all thiough tho
lecture. The exposition this year is "small
potatoes" and no mistake, but Chicago is
not to blame for it. The fact is tho man
agement only aro to blame.
Crime continues to hold its own, ond tho
city administration is getting pretty hard
knocks now and then. Just now the minis
ters under tho lead of Dr. Noble, of Union
Park church, are beginning to go for "tho
best mayor" ond moro rum than Chicago
ever had en passant.
