Yesterday morning the home attached
j to the bakery wagon of Mr. Jno. Iteeso was
standing on Ohio Levee near Second street
when an engine standing near by on the
Illinois Central railroad track suddenly let
off steam with a torriffic force. The horse,
though usually very gentle and not at all
given to running away.startcd off at a rapid
run down Second street toward Commercial
avenue. But before reaching the
the wagon turned over, tho young man,
Mr. Reese's son, who occupied the scat was
thrown out and tho top of the wagon torn
into fragments. Tho horse was stopped
before he had readied Commercial avenue
The young man was not seriously hurt

"Prompt and torribl punishment has fallen
upon the heads of the two cowardly ruffians
who lately attempted to blow up the Liver
pool town hall. M'Grath,as the worse crim
inal of tho two, and the chiet agent of tho
organization which aims at terrorizing Great
Britain by means of dynamite, has been
sentenced to penal sorvitudo for life, while
M'Kevict is to undergo similar imprison
ment for a term of fifteen years." He also
relates an incident which shows plainly
that some of the most despicable, craver
hearted poltroons that trod the earth are
Englishmen. An excursion party on a
tram between south end and London com
posed of a number of ladies and
gcntlemcn(?) was bound for the latter
place to enjoy themselves for a day. During
the rido ono of the aforesaid gentlemen, (?)
named Thomas John Hambly, missed his
watch, and he forthwith accused two ladies
of the theft and proceeded to abuse and
strike them, tear their clothes from their
bodies, and by threatening to throw the
little child of one of them out of the car
window and stamp upon it and to knife
them, compelled them to undress entirely
so that he might examine their clothing.
Several other males who were in the same
car all that time, saw it all, without making
an effort to interfere. Where is there
an American who would not have shot
Hambly like a dog that ho was?
The people of Green county have held
a convention and nominated candidates for
the county offices and have requested the
county clerk to call an election in Novem
ber next. The people of Green county are
very foolish. Their election, if they do
hold one. will amount to nothing more
than the expenditure of much money
more wind and sore disappointment; but
they will have learned something about
themselves that they do not now seem to
know they will know that they don't
know quite as much as they think they
know. Thcv intend, of course, u hold an
election under the old election laws of the
state, holding that these are unaffected by
the new amendment and will remain so un
til 18S2. But they have not givn the sub
ject very deep thought, or they would not
hold as they do. The new amendment
either went into effect when the result of
the ballots was declared, or it did not go
into effect at all and it never will. It it is
unconstitutional now it will be equally un
constitutional in 1882. To illuitrate
this let us BUnpose the people of
Green county, or of Alexander county,
should hold an election next November and
elect their county officers. The governor
will refuse to issue commi""", as he has
time and again iniiiuated he. will: The
officers apply for a mandamus, the case
goes into the courts and the courts decide
the new amendment and the laws made in
pursuance thereof to be unconstitutional.
Supposing, for the sake of argument that
this were the case, how then, could an
election be legally held under the same
amendment and the same laws in 1883?
The truth and the gist of this whole mud
dled question is this : Either the new elec
tion laws never were and never can be con
stitutional, or the old laws were annulled
when the new ones weraenactcd. If we de
ny the first proposition and affirm that the
new law does go in effect in 1882, then we
must admit that the old law is annulled,
because it conflicts with the new in that it
requires officers to be elected in next No
vember for terms extending beyond 1882.
And for tho same reason does the new
amendment fall, if we affirm that the old
provision of tho constitution is in force un
til 1882. For fren, tho men elected in
next November would be entitled to hold
thciroffices until 1883 and 1885, aud an elec
tion held under the new provision, in 1882
would give us two sets of officers, which
would be a most palpablo violaiion, not on
ly of the constitution, but of good horse
sense. It is reasonable to suppose that as
the majority of the people
of the state voted for the new provision, bo
the majority ara opposed to holding an elec
tion in next November; for the amendment
was proposed for the ostensible purpose of
lessening the number of county elections
in the interest of economy ;and thoso who aro
seeking to defeat this purpose by holding an
election this fall are lead on by office seek
ers whoso thirst for office blinds them alike
to tho expressed will of tho people and the
meaning of constitutional law.

Scnimv, August 21, 1S81,
Having remained at homo during the
long, dry and dusty summer, I concluded
that I was entitled to a short rest from busi
ness cares and I therefore decided to In
take mysJlf to the Saratoga of Southern
Illinois for a short vacation. Accordingly
on Thursday morning last I boarded the
C. & V. train bound tor Dixon. I expected
to have a lonesome, dreary trip, but I was
agreeably disappointed to meet two of
Cairo's most charming and agreeable young
ladies who were bound for the Barao destin
ation. Our train, in charge of that prince
of conductors, Mr. Sullivan, in due time
landed us safely in Vienna where we break
fasted, and thus braced up for the fearful
ride overland to tho spring, The fellow
that laid out tho road must certainly
have been in sympathy with blacksmiths
and wagon-makers. Ilo was particular to
tako in every hill and hollow and steer
wide ol overy level stretch of country. We
made the trip, nevertheless, in safety but
considerably fatigued and covered with
dust, arriving bore about noon. Contrary
to expectation wc found the place not
crowded and were assigned comfortable
There aro about 50 or GO persons here
now, of whom about one-fourth aro chil
dren. A more pleasant and sociable crowd
you could scarcely meet. Everybody is in
good spirits and determined to enjoy himself
and assist others in doing so.
The Cairo folks re well and happy. Wo
are as follows; 8. P. Bennett and family,
Mrs. Dr, Henderson and MIhs Alice; Mrs.
Hodges, daughter and son; Misses Rida
and Lettlo Corlis; Mr. M. J. Howley, Miss
Llwio Green and Joseph. Our young la
dies, together with Misses Craig, of Metro
polis, Rondo, of Oolcocda, Allard, of Pa
ducah, and Copeland, of Vienna, are the
life of the party, and succeod in creating
lots of amusoment for tholr friends. Prom
inent among the gentlemen presont are:
Messrs. J. C. Willis ami Ed. Corlis, of Me
tropolis; John Gilbert, jr., ol Golconda,
Robt. Bronnon, of EvauKville; and W. Scott
Walters, of Washington.
The programme usually followed is: An
early trip to the springs, then breakfast,
more spring water, croquet, rambling
through the woods, dinner, nap, spring wa
ter, supper, vocal and instrumental music,
winding up with a ball on the "grand por
tico. The dancing is usually enjoyed as
much by the lookers on as the dancers, ow
ing to the ludicrous mistakes of some awk
ward gents, who tail to understand the mys
teries of the "mazy." Very few of the male
portion of the crowd can dance, but among
those few Mr. Ed. Corlis is voted the most
graceful in gliding through the different
It is surprising to note tho number of
Evansville drummers that come here. "The
woods are full of 'em." They visit the various
towns in this vicinity on business and take
advantage of the proximity of tho springs
to, "drop in" and have a good time. They
make things bum when thecal!, too. Night
before last two of the brotherhood register
ed here and, after having a jolly good time
at the ball, were (unfortunately for me) as
signed to the room adjoining mine. I hail
for probably nn hour or more been wrapped
in "tired nature's sweet restorer, balmy
sleep," when I was aroused by these mad
agents entering their room with as much
noise and bluster as might shame a couple
of Sitting Bull's followers, and they kept
up the racket a disagreeably long time.
They had not disrobed when two or three
gentlemen friends entered and asked the
privilege of testing their samples. Ac
cordingly as the accommodating drummer
would pass out the different samples ho
proceeded to explain that this was "Jim
Crow," the other, "Bourbon County Mon
arch," another, "78 goods" etc., etc. Dur
ing this proceeding I heard sounds as of
smacking lips occasionally and heard the
visitors praise the "goods" in their own pe
culiar lingo. In my simplicity I wondered
if the "goods" consisted of anything good
to drink ! Tired ol their unholy rioting I
finally heaved a deep sigh and uttered a
loud groan when hark! all Iwcame quiet.
"'Sh, I wonder if they can hear in the next
room." At last I was permit
ted to resume my sweet
and peaceful slumbers. Bxse drummers,
for revenge, I now give you away !
Quite an amusing episode occurred last
night. A party of throe Golconda gentle
men have a camp on.a hill close by. They
aie supplied with everything necessary to
insure a good time. In retaliation for some
prank played by one of the camp on the la
dies, tho latter made sn attack on the csmp
after dark, and while the gentlemen were
at supper, completely divested it of every
thing it contained. The contents were hid
den in the woods. By this morning nearly
everything was recovered. My impression
is that the victims are plotting to get even.
Tho weather here is very pleasant, except
for a few hours about the middle of the day.
We have pleasant, cooling breezes almost
constantly. Owing to the continued dry
weather, the rds nre quite dusty. Since
we came we have had two very slight show
ers, scarcely sufficient to lay the dust.
Before closing, ailow me to say that Mr.
and Mrs. Brown and their polite assistants
leave nothing undone to render their guests'
stay pleasant. Owing to Mr. H.'s continued
ill-health, he will not lease this property
after this year. This, I should say, leaves a
fine opening for some live Cairo man.
