-Yesterday morning a crowd ot white
roughs disturbed the neighborhood of
Thirteenth and Poplar, by shouts and the
shooting ot pistols. Officers Schuckers and
Dunktr attempted to arrest them but, there
being five in number, found it impossible
since they refused to be taken.
John Puckett, the half-witted boy who
is otten seen on our streets, was last night
struck on the head by a minsle thrown by
une unknown person, while he was march
ing in the democratic procession. Quite a
wound was indicted, from which the blood
flowed freely. The officers searched for the
guilty party but failed to find him.
At the meeting of the city council,
night before last, Alderman Hinkle intro
duced a resolution by which, if it passes
the council, Mr. Nellis will not be required
to fulfill his contract until the 25th of
November. According to the resolution he
will be required to give bond, us a guaran
tee that he will comply with the contract.
It was expected by Mr. Henry Stout,
ho is doing the brick work on the New
York store, that the extra story which is
being added to the dry goods department,
would be finished yesterday evening. The
addition will be used as a stoie room. The
goods that were formerly stored on the first
floor, will be transferred to the second, in
order to make room for the increasing
trade of the firm. It adds considerably to
the appearance of the building.
The names of seven negroes, who tried
to register day before yesterday and who
are not entitled to a vote in this 6tate, have
been reported to us. They came from the
south and, to the certain knowledge of
some ot our citizens, have only been
residents of this city fur several months,
yet they insisted with much firmness and
apparent indignation that they had lived in
our midst for over a year. They, and many
more like them, will doubtless attempt to
register on the 20th, and succeed in voting
in November unless a sharp lookout is kept
Phillip Phillips, assisted by son. w ill
give an "evening of song" at the M. E.
Church, Saturday, the 2od inst. The Juliet
Daily Record says of him: "Phillip Phil
lips gave one of his sings at Ottawa-street
Church, Saturday evening. There was a
good audience, and it always rests one and
makes him feel better to hear sacred songs.
This is doubly so when they are sung by a
person like Mr. Phillips, for ho sings
sweetly, pleasantly, and earnestly. Mr. P
has a rich, strong voice, and pleases all.
His remarks, too, were earnest and sensi
ble." The election iu Indiana and Ohio was
vastly more important to the republican
than to tho democratic party. To the for
mer a defeat in either ono of theso states
would have been a disaster, which would
have hastened the none the less certain
downfall of tho party, and necessitated an
immediately reorganization. On the other
hand it does not thus affect the democratic
party, for even if tho Btato election is any
criterion by which the November election
could be correctly judged, tho democratic
party will havova majority of tho electoral
voto sufficiently large to bo able to dispense
with Indiana. But Tuesday's election
in Indiana, if correctly reported, does
no foreshadow the result of the
November election in that state.
Porter's great popularity ami Landers' tin
popularity, were tho sole reasons why the
state did not givj a democratic
majority. But in tho presidential -.'lec
tion tho caso is reversed tho republicans
havo the cxtrcmoly unpopular man then,
and tho pcoplo of Indiana, faithful to tho
right, will not fail to repudiato lam in tho
most decided manner.
The work of erecting tho addition to
Smith Bros', store is now under full head
way, und will soon result in tho appearance
of a two-story building on Washington
between Thirteenth and Fourteenth, which
will extend from Washington to Poplar,
Tho building, when completed, will give
the firm a store-room ono hundred and
sixty-feet in length and forty feet in width-
larger than any other store room in tho
city. The firm already carries a large gen
eral stock of goods, which, however, will
be considerably increased as soon as their
addition is completed, when our readers
will be intormed of the inducements they
offer to the trade, through tho colums of
Commodore Perry, an African and a
hard case, is in tho habit of severely chas
tising his better half and then throwing
her out of the house. Ho was in the act of
performing this ceremony day before yester-
lay, when his son-in-law, Bradford by
name, protested and interfered,
1 he "commodore would not
be tnterferred with and threatend to
admiuister severe physical punishment un
to both Bradford and his wife if they did
not allow him to do as he pleased with his
own wife. Hereupon Bradford, the son-in-law,
made complaint against, the Comino-
dor who was yesterday arrested by Officer
Dunker and brought before Squire Osborn
for trial. He took a change of venue to
Judge Olmstead, who assessed a fine of live
dollars and costs aud, in default of pay
ment, sent him to jail for twelve days.
A special to the St. Louis Republican
ays: "Hon. John II. Oberly, the efficient
lemocratic candidate for secretary of state,
is making a splendid canvass, and like the
other democratic candidates, is doing much
hard work. He has just completed a large
number of appointments and begins anoth
er round at Collinsvilie on the night of the
13th. The many friends ot this nonular
,'entleman in Southern Illinois will, no
doubt, be pleased to see how well he is
thought of in Northern Illinois by the fol-
which is cut lrom the Chicago
Times, an independent paper, ot a late date :
One of the most active men on the ticket is
John Oberly, who has been making a very
active canvass, and has visited nearly every
section of the state. As everybody knows,
John is a mighty clever fellow, and from his
large acquaintance throughout the common
wealth it is expected that bis name will
give as much strength to the ticket a that
Judge Trumbull himself. John has" the
faculty of making himself particularly pop
ular among the working men, and through
his connection with journalism, the board
of railroad and warehouse commissioners.
and his social relations, he knows a very
large number of people in both parties. Of
him it may be said that everybody who
knows him is his warm friend, and will not
lescrt him in the hour of his extremity."
I slept in a bed by myself and ate at a
separate table," said Mr. Damron to us in
speaking of his having accented the hospi
tality of the colored nun, Ike Wilson, at
Dog Tooth precinct, last Friday night. We
enquired how many children the family
were blessed with, to which he replied:
Two." To another interrogation he said :
No; I didn't kiss them. I. admit that I
rode them on mv knee: but I
lid n't kiss them and wouldn't
kiss them." Tho question will nat
urally occur to tho reader, "why didn't
Mr. Damson sleep with say the head of
the family; why didn't ho eat at the family
table and why didn't he kiss the two
blooming innocents especially siuce he had
them so near his beating breast?" We won't
undertake to answer those questions, but
will tell our readers confidentially and
with bated breath (so that Mr. I), will uot
hear us), that we have reason to believe
that he really did all ot these
things, but since our reasons for
this belief are very numerous will
not now trouble our readers with them.
Mr Nellis more bold than Mr. Damron
does not undertake to deny the soft iin
peachmeut Bince ho knows that the truth is
mighty and will prevail, notwithstanding
any statement to the contrary that ho might
make. A denial would not be believed
while the facts are against him, ami would
only causo him to lose double the num
ber of colored votes that ho expected to
gain by taking up his quarters with the
colored man, Ed. McDowell.
Day before yesterday evening, as we
entered the office of Squiro Osborn, in
search of the day's doings, we found two
men present (one of them, a cripple and a
hard looking cuce), who were asking for a
warrant to secure the arrest tit some per
son for a breach of the peace. On inquiry
wo learned that they wero named respec
tively R. J. Wilson and W. J. Davis, and
that tho man, whom they wanted punished,
was one J. W. Waller. They wero the own
ers of a "family boat," they said,'aud had
arrived at this port from Paducah on Fri
day last. On tho day they left Paducah,
Waller had boarded their boat and made
them the proposition that if they would
pemit him and his wife to ride down tho
river he would pay for tho necessary
eatables for all on board. Believing
this to be a liberal offer they accepted it.
Waller left, promising to bring his wife
aboard In tho course of an hour, but bo
fore that time elapsed a womau with two
CLOTH J 5 G HOUSE

children boarded the boat, who claimed to
be Waller's wife. She told the two owners
of the craft that she had ascertain! that
her husband iutended to leave by tie boat
incompany with a woman named Julia Mar
tin, with whom he had taken up a short time
ago, and asked permission to conceal her
self and children on the boat, iu order that
he mirlit not accomplish his designs.
Permission was granted. The woman con
cealed herself, and shortly afterwards W.al-
.er came aboard with a woman, whom he
presented as his wife. The boat was shoved
out and when it had a:ned the mid. lie of
the stream, the wife and children left their
hiding place and presented themselves to
the astonished husband and father. Natur
ally enough a bitter feeling existed between
the women, and their quarrels were fre
quent and fierce, and resulted very often in
the wife receiving a s i beating from the
adopted woman, white toe husband stood
by indifferently, and even saw his children
beaten and abused, by the s one being, with
out protest. After this state i't affiirs In 1
isted three or four days, the wife informed
the two owners of the boat that her hus
band was the same Waller who about a
year ago iiaa killed one Martin, the
husband of the woman he now had with
him, iu order that lie mL-ht live with her.
He shot Martin through the lungs, and was
arrested and lodged in jail for the offense,
but escaped therefrom by knocking the
jailer down and nearly beating him to
oath. A reward was offered for his cap
ture, but he left the country, and
ha.l just recently returned. She said
she preferred to see him dead, or
in the penitentiary for life, rather
than that he should desert her for another
woman, and asked that they secure his ar
rest for the crime. They made inquiry of
the woman he had with him and, strange
to say, she too admitted that Waller had
murdered her husband, and expressed a de
termination to follow him wherever he
went Being afraid of Waller the two men
refused to meddle with the affair,
and upon hheir arrival here asked
him to leave the boat. This he firmly re
fused todo, telling them, with many oaths,
that he had as much right to it as they had
and would, if necessary, swear in a court of
justice that ho had purchased the boat
from them. The result of this was a quar
rel, and while they desired no difficulty
with him they did not want to leave their
boat in that way. Hence they asked
for a warrant for his arrest, charging him
with threatening and abusive language, iu or
der that he would be compelled to leave
the boat for a sufficient length of time to
enable them to start it down the river. The
warrant was obtained and placed in the
hands of officer Lally, but before it could
bo served the follow had run the boat over
to the Kentucky shore, leaving the two
owners in this city. It is possible that the
story is untrue, and that Wilson aud Davis
(who are by no means the most inuocent
looking beings we have seen) have con
cocted it for a purpose uot now apparent.
TIIK DKMOCRAT3 LAST NIGHT.
In spite of the rather muddy roads, the
democratic demonstration last night was
much more imposing than it was expected
to be by even the most confident. The
news from Indiana, instead of having a dis
couraging effect, only seemed to make men
more enthusiastic and the good feeling that
was seen expressed in every faco showed
plainly that tho hope of success iu Novem
ber was not in tho least disturbed. Accord
ing to request tho several clubs gathered on
Ohio Levee, at tho appointed hour, iu uni
forms aud with torches, and formed in line
in front of tho "Rooster's" headquarters.
Tho Rooster's martial band and theCoiuique
band, both iu fancy uniforms,

crowd prepared themselves to listen to the
speaker of the evening, Gen. Wm. B.
Anderson, who was introduced to them as
soon as quiet prevailed. The general is an
agreeable speaker, and is able to interest
his hearers for any longth of time. He
touched upon the vital questions which
claim the attention of the voters of the
country at the present time, giving (Jen.
Garfield a well directed blow because of
with "the fraud of '7i."
he passed onto oth
an hour and a
half, during which time he held the close
attention of the audience, which was com
posed of both races and in which the sev
eral political parties, other than demo
cratic, were well represented. The general
was frequently interrupted with hearty
cheers, laughter and other dcmanstritions
of approval, which proved that his remarks
were well appreciated. At the conclusion
of his speech, throe hearty farewell cheers
were given him and then the gathering dis
