A New York paper, speaking ot uncul
tured wives, says: "They cannot enjoy in
telligently a good picture or a good novel.
They love the frothiest litcratureand music,
and know no more of the stirring events of

the data of ethics." This brutal and un
called for attack on the cynocephalus is
another evidence of the hardening influ
ences of a great political contest.
The long and honorable business record
of Mr. Horace Waters, of New Y'ork, is
sufficient guarantee of the integrity of the

competition has brought down the prices of
pianos and organs very low within the
means of everybody purchasers may be
certain of being fairly dealt with by this
house. Their advertisement may be found
in another column.
One of the Springfield churches is now
undergoing an ordeal Which is liable to end
in a general racket among the brethren. It
appears that on Sunday morning a collec
tion was being taken up for indigent pas
tors, and that the minister, whose salary
was some months in arrears, in his sermon
said that the lawyers and doctors alt had
a means of collecting tho debts due them,
but that this was not so with ministers.
Ono of the "corner stones" arose and stated
that he did not propose to be tongue lanhed
in this manner, and thereupon a number of
brethren arose and expressed their views on
the subject, after which several ot tho mem
bers left vowing their intention never to re
turn. "We caro not how much men may
differ in politics, in business there should
be no attempt at undcrhandqd work, and
we write this to expose tho action of the
manager of Tub Bulletin because he hap
pened to be short of help trying to coax
our hands to quit us, by representing that
we would go under after the election."
We do not know to what tho News refers
in tho above item. Tho manager of The
Bulletin has not asked, nor authorized
any other person to ask a printer to leave
tho News or any other office. Mr. Leonard

JOHN H. OBERLY.
Mr. Oberly is a candidate for secretary
of state. He ought to be elected. He is
worthy and well qualified. But that in not
ail. His opponent is not in sympathy with
the mass of the people, who expect to ed
ucate their children at the public schools.
By a singular combination of circumstances
Oberly, tho friend and champion of free
Bchools, is opposed by Demuut, the enemy
of our present public school system.
If the people have timo to give the mut
ter their attention, they will elect Oberly,
and rend a lecture to Dement that he will
not soon forget:
We intend that our readers shall not
vote for Dement without first knowing iris
Wc meet a great many people on our

The army numbers two stalwart men, six
or eight able-bodied women ami two chil
dren. These people support themselves by
traveling from city to city, preaching and
proving through streets and alleys, and in
churches and rum shops, exciting the com-
nnseriition ot a too thoughtless and gener
ous public. In the mime of common de-
encv they should be surpressed. They
have no visible mean of support, and are
amenable to the vagrant act, and ought to

1IKNRY 1. DEMENT.
We intend to keep it before the people
that Henry D. Dement is the enemy of our
free school system. He is a candidate for
secretary of state. He is unlit for any posi
tion in tho gift of the free voters of Illinois.
We have an abiding confidence that he
will be repudiated by the people at the
coming November election.
THE REPUBLICAN RALLY.
The meeting last night was a very cred
itable affair, and the speakers were as fair
in their statements as could have been ex
pected under the circumstances, consider
ing the weakness of the cause they repre
sent, and the fraud and corruption in their
party that must be covered up by the cry
of "stop ' thief." The authoring at the
speaker's stand was large, but not so largo
ns it should have beet when we remember
to what extent the meeting had been ad
vertised, the scope of country, in three
states, that was scoured to make the rally
a success, and the great republican lights
of the state that were brought together
here that the attraction might be as great
The greater portion of the white people
nt the meeting were democrats who gath
ered there, not to listen to stale and ex
ploded chargeR and denunciations of
their party, but out of curi
osity to see his Excellency Governor
Cullom, and such men as General Hurlbut
and Colonel Carr.
The committee was most fortunate in
their choice of a day. The weather, al
though dark and stormy in the morning,
cleared up fair and pleasant before noon,
and a pleasanter evening for an outdoor
meeting could not have been wished for.
Wo can only account for this propiliousncss
on the part ot the weather, on the ground
that the giver of all good things, knowing
that in November will come "the winter of
their discontent" to the Republican party,
is willing to favor them a little before the

numbered their white brethren nine to one.
So far as the speeches were concerned, if
any changes in the opinions of voters were
made by them, it was in favor of the Dem
ocrats. Haiu'Ek's Magazine for November con
cluding the sixty -first volume is, probably,
taken as a whole, the most beautiful ever
issued. It contains another of those illus
trated papers by William Hamilton Gibson,
which have been so much and so justly
priised for the poetic delicacy of their illus
trations. This paper is entitled "An
Antumn Pastoral ;" and the familiar sug
gestions of the subject have found the most
happy expression in the pictures from the
author's pen and pencil, and have been
rendered in the finest style by the best en
gravers of the cjuntry.
The number opens with a lcautiful
pacr on "Saint Cecilia," whose history,
real ami legendary, is given, w ith a descrip
tion of her church in Rome, and reproduc
tion of the poems relating to St. Cecilia
by Dryden, Addison and Pope, to which is
ailded one of Mme. Emile do Girardin,
translated by Z. B. Gustafson.
One of the most popular attractions of
the number will be Gayston Fay's "Saline
Types," full of humorous stories concerning
the "Old Salts" of long Island, with charac
teristic illustrations by the author and A. B .
A brief article on "Porcelain Painting"
makes clear the distinction between over
glaze and under-glazo work, and tho kinds
of decoration adapted to them.
In the Easy Chair are some interesting
reminisoeiices of Hawthorne, a discussion
of the distinction made between Puritants
and Pilgrims, and some entertaining gossip
about the Newport of to-day. The other
editorial departments are well sustained,
and the dawer is unusually good.
