In accordance with the suggestion of
The Bulletin, an attempt was yesterday
made by several republicans to collect a
sufficient amount of money to redeem the

is the property of the government and must
be redeemed, or the responsible parties
will be compelled to report it lost or worn
out to tho department at Washington.
With the proper effort the money can be
raised. Try agaiu, boys.

A circular receive J by Mr. Jus. F. Mil

duties to the satisfaction of all, receiving.
enconimiuins of praise from every quarter.
He is the candidate of no party and we ;
trust that the people ot the county, irre- i
spective of politic, will retain l.iiu iu a
position for which he is sov.ell qualified
He will not receive the full democratic
vote nor the full republican vote,
but will have the. support of the
Irinon of thinking men of both parties who
believe that merit should be rewarded and
jHilitics should bo excli'ded from county
affairs. These men will elect him by a
arte majority and o they should. No
public, servant ever rendered a better ac
count of his stewartship than Jack Hodges
and none, we might add. was ever more
fairly entitled to the cortidenee and sup
port of the people.
-The News is at its old tricks of excus
ing official irregularities which concern the
people of both city and country. By way
of reply to our charge that Mr. John Reeve
had overcharged persons for making out
naturalization papers, it says that "of those.
who have been naturalized, r.ot one has
lieon asked for one cent, it tees
more than what he (Mr.
Reeve) construed tho law as fixing
thorn at." It may be that tho News is right
when it says that "Mr. Reeve did not ask
for one cent of fees more than what he
construed the law as fixing them." But ho
mu ask sud take one iilnokkd ani sixty
cents, more than what the court decided
the law entitled him to. It cannot be said
that Mr. Reeve did not know what he was
n", for ho is not a sim
pleton. The law Is plain enough for any
man of average common senso and it does
not renuire a lawyer to understand it.
Mr. Reeve was told by Mr. Leek that ho
was violating tho law in respect to his
charge for naturalization papers, but Mr.
Rcevo diil not believe Mr. Leek nor yet
hooded tho law as it was plainly shown
him. and continued to charge
his exhorbitant fee. But moie than this.

lOCIDENT ON THE VINCENNES HO A D.
Quite au accident occurred on the Cairo
and Yincenncs road to the gravel train, four
mi!e. this side of Oak Town, last night,
which resulted in the death of one man and
seriously wounding five or six. The train
which w as composed of eight or niuc ear
and au engine, wtu thntwu from the track
by the engine striking a cow. The tender
ot the engine was thrown on one side of
tlie truck and tlie engine on the other, and
the car were generally wrecked and piled
one upon another. Drs. Parker, Kryaut
aud Dunning were sent for and found
their hands fu!L They amputated two legs

ANOTHER HORRIBLE ACCIDENT.
The incline of the Illinois Central was
yesterday the scene of another accident,
which resulted in the death of & young
switchman. The details of this catastro
pLo re, if jusiltle, even more tenible than
the one which preceded it. This is the
third accident that has occurred on the in
cline within a few months pst and tlie im
mediate cause was the same in every case.
It has, in fact, become a very common oc
currence that the coupling ot one or more
cars i:i a . train brakes whilo
it is being drawn up the incline, and it
would ce,m that more attention should be
given to the condition of this important
part of a train before it is started np a
steep incline. By last evening's, accident
Thomas Jones, a young man about twenty
years of age, lost his life. He was a switch
man, and was standing on the hindmost car
of a train t tint was being drawn up tho iu
cline from the steamer Junius Morgau
when, after about halt tho ascent had been
made, the coupling of the car
upon which Jones was standing, broke
allowing the car to run back. The re
mainder of the train went a little farther,
when another coupling broke, allowing one
or two more cars to rapidly run down the
steep embankment. Young Jones saw his
danger and, it is supposed, jumped lrom
the car as he hail done on a previous oc
casion under similar circumstances. In his
decent toward the river he struck the sharp
edge of one of the cross timbers, which
protrude on either side of the carriage,
with his abdomen and the force of the fall
tore a fearful wound the entire length ot
his body, after which ho fell into the river.
He was immediately fished out of the
water, laid upon a flat car and taken to the
stone depot, where Dr. Parker arrived soon
after and gave the poor man all possible
attention. He lived about fiftocn ininutos
after the Doctor's arrival, uttering only a
few incoherent words and groans, aud died
iu the greatest agony. His homo is on the
corner ot Twenty-first and Poplar streets,
and he leaves his parents and two brothers
to nmurn over his fearful death.
A glance at the diagram of seats at the
Atheneum for next Tuesday night, and a
note made ol the number checked off as
taken, will convince the most sceptical that
Hartman was not mistaken in his estimate
of appreciative Cairo audiences.
Tho house will be packed and jammed.
it is true that seldom oro the boards of
Cairo favored with a troupe equal to that
of Mr. Raymond's, and it is also truo that
the public liko to bo amused that a great
comedian will draw better than a reat
tragodian,' and when tho greatest in either
of these lines aro brought here we icei
sure that the scats will be filled.
