U. 8. MAIL BAG NO. :i,
A correspondent writing from Eh o says:
"Dainron has been riding around through
the country with a U. S. mail bag filled
with erncktrs, sausage, yellow bills, dirty
shirts and soiled socks. He left it in n
saloon ut Sandusky in "soak" for the drinks.
He made a speech in Sandusky, in which
ho tried to create sympathy by pleading
poverty and condemning a third term for
Leek. His stay in Sandusky Is always
brief ns there W no colored friends to nurse
him through an attack ot 'spasms.'"
This is the man, nominated by a packed
convention on his arrival trom Johnson
county, against ttm express will of the pen-
pie who insist upon the right to name their
own candidate. The "spasms" that will
overtake him on the 2d of November will
be simply wonderiu!.
ATTENTION COLORED VOTERS.
At a meeting of the colored state execu
tive committee formed under the auspices
of the late colored convention, held at the
city of Springfield, Illinois, the following
officers were elected, and entered upon the
discharge of their respective duties : John
J. Bird, president; John G. Jones, vice
president; T. F. M. Kar, secretary, and C.
Mitchcm. corresponding secretary.
A resolution was pa.-ed instructing the
president to issue an address t the colored
voters, urging them to vote for the Hon.
John H. Oberly, fur secretary of state.
Mr. Oberly has strong claims for the
suffrages of colored men, he having been
for years their true and tried friend on all
matters of legislation affecting their rights
and privileges. He advocated Negro Suf
frage, as mi act of justice, claiming that he
having been emancipated, should be clothed
with the ballot. He defended, supported
and voted for the reused school laws ot
this state. He is the lriend of the labor
ing classes, and should have their hearty
and united support irrcsjK'ctive of race,
color or party affiliation". We therefore
appeal to you in the name of all that is
near and dear to you as men and citizens,
to work and votp for him at the coming
election, and thereby achieve f r yourselves
that distinction and respect which your in
telligence and numbers entitle you to.
Mr, Ol erlv's opponent, Henry Dement,
though a Republican, has not had the cour
age to meet those questions with that bold
ness and impartiality which is so essential
in party leaders especially those who are
aspirants to office. His election would be
a repetition of what we have witnessed in
the past, and tend to postpone our advance
ment to positions in life, in accord with our
fitness and qualifications.
John J. Bird, President.
T. F. M. Kay, Secretary.
Blofimington, Ills., Oct. 14, IS8(I.
The above circular was . received from
Judge Bird ut Til K Bli.i.ktin office last
night. We submit it without comment.
It speaks for itselt. The Judge is expected
lo return to Cairo to-day.
General Crook, the famous cavalry offi
cer in speaking of Ohio and Indiana, refer
ring to the election expresses great confid
ence in the ability of the democrats to
carry Indiana lor Hancock, leaving only
Ohio in any kind of doubt. The division,
in tho councils ot the party in the former
state, have been cemented together by tho
frauds perpetrated, and the importation of
negroes by the republicans, in order to
carry the state election.
The smoke of battle has blown aside and
the atmosphere is clear again. The demo
crats have recovered from surprise at the
disaster that almivit demoralized them,
and arejubiliant over tho prospect. There
