TUB REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES.
Our Republican fellow citizens, both
white and black, hut especially black, hold
primary meetings in the fivo wards of :
city, and in the county, yesterday for the
purpose of selecting delegates to the county
convention to be held at the court house in
this city on the 22d instant.
The proceedings of tho primaries held in
the First, Second and Third wards werevery
inharmonious, and the results wero any
thing but satisfactory to the
wliito Republicans. In tho First
and Second wards two sets of del
egates were elected one each for Dainrori
and Thomas. In the Third ward none
were selected and the meeting broke up,
after much wrangling, in sonio confusion.
In the Fourth ward delegates wero selected
and instructed for D.imrou; and tho Fifth
ward selected delegates and instructed
them for Thomas.
In the First ward the
meeting was presided over by
a colored gentleman named Less Har
ris, who had much more faith in thecoma I
ne -s of the instructions received (nun ,Iud;;e
Dainron, or one of the judge's friends, than
he had in the ('Hinuioiily accepted parha
inentary rules, or the ability of a Can
casian mjority to rule. Tle re were abeiit
thirty-two colored gentlemen and thirty
seven "common white trash;" the forim r
were all forjudge Daiiiiou, and the latter,
all for Captain Thomas. But the motion to
appoint certain gentlemen of Damronian
proclivities, as a committee to select the del
egates to tho county convention, which
motion was ma lo by a colored gentlemen
of Damronian proclivities, and voted down
by tho thirty seven Thoinasonian "common
white trash" who were in tho niaj irily by
five, was declared carried by the august in
dividual who wielded the gavel. Th"
Damronian chair appointed the Damronian
committee which selected Damronian del
egates who were instructed to vote for
Daniron, by the Damronian minority, and
then, without waiting for a motion to that
effect, the chair roared foith, above the
loud ' protests of the whites,
that "dis chero moetiu' stans adjourne,'
case do objec fo wich hit wero
assemble together were Well done." With
this the Damronian chairman made a digni
fied bolt for the door, followed by his band
ot thirty-two; but the thirty-seven Thorr.
asonian whites remained, reorganized the
meetingand selected Thoinasonian del- I
egates to the county convention.
In tho Second ward Mr. C. N. Hughes
was elected chairman. Tho voters were
divided similar to those in the First ward.
But there were twenty-seven colored gen
tlemen on one side of the house and twenty
five meek white citizens huddled together
on the other side tho former being for
Dainron, the latter for Thomas. The inter
esting work was quickly done. Here, as
at the First ward meeting, the plans had
all been laid and before tho bewildered
minority could realize it, the work had
been done, and the meeting was declared
adjourned. But the whites reorganized it,
selected a second set of delegates,
instructed themjfor Thomas and appointed
a committee of five to lay "the whole shame
ful business," as one good Republican
termed it, before tho county convention next
Thursday. It is assorted that there weru
arbitaVy rulings by the chair, and irreg
ular motions ami voting.
The Third ward meeting was a jumble of
everything unparliamentary, and the ten illic
elementary commotion which broke in upon
its inharmonious deliberations was a fitting
So for it has been an open fight between
the colored and white Republicans in this
city, in which tho latter were badly, though
to some extent, unfairly, worsted.
But the end is not yet. It
is likely that new primaries will
be held in tho First, Second ami Third
wards, certainly in the latter. 1 not, a
row in the convention is inevitable.
No definite, reliable news was received
from the country, but it was confidently be
lieved by those who were well posted, that
Captain Thomas would carry at least seven
of tho ten county precincts.
Y ESTERDAY'S STOIOI.
For the benefit of thosoofTim Bulle
tin's readers who aro not aware of tho
fact, bo it Baid, that another heavy storm
passed over this city yesterday afternoon
about '4 :!)) o'clock, and did considerable
damage in a comparatively small way.
Warning of tho approach of tho storm had
been giAon in various ways some time be
fore it came. It was vaguely known that
St. Louis had been visited by a hurricane
the night before, and had sustained consid
erable damage This was vaguely known,
we say, for no positive information of the
fact could be obtained, because of the
destruction of telegraph lines between here
and that city. Furthermore, some citizens
who had barometers, and paid any attention
to them, notlcod the rapid fall in that in
strument, made preparations and warned
their neighbors. Sergeant W. II. Ray also

notified people in various parts of the city,
about two hours in advance
The storm came upon us from tho north
westerly direction, and swept over the city
i at a steady rate of nbout fifty-five
miles per hour, for a littlo over
half an hour. It began with wind alone,
quite gently at first, but steadily increasing
in force, gathering up thick clouds of dust
which hid everything from view and com
pulled pedestrians and teamsters to neck
the nearest shelter. A heavy rain, mixed
with hail, soon followed and laid the dust,
but the wind continued to blow with un
abated foice, strewing ( very street with
green foliage stripped from trees, uprooting
many of the sturdy forest inonarchs ami
hurling them across streets and against
houses, completely blockading the former
and more or less injuring the latter.
Several houses were partially
unroofed, fences chimneys and
out-houses were blown down, and loose
objects in streets and yards were carried
away' long distances.
The principal damage to property in the
city was sustained by tho brick residence
of Mr. A. Marx, on Ninth street, back of
Walnut. A large tree standing just across
the street, measuring abovt two anil a half
feet in diameter near the base and rearing
a crown of immense brances aloft which
spread nearly over the entire street, fell
down, some of the great branches striking
the front of the house, causing the entire
gable to cave in, and tho great mass of
brick and mortar breaking through the
ceiling of the upper rooms, cainu down
with a terriflic cravli upon the lloor, just
over the rooms below occupied by Mrs.
Marx nnd several oilier ladies. But, ow
ing, perhaps, to the whistling of the wind
and the splash ol rain ngainst
the windows mid the loud thunder,
Mrs. Maix ami her companions
failed to hear the crash over their heads,
ami knew nothing nf it until Dr. C. W.
Dunning, who lives near by and had
heard it, came around to see if any one was
hurt, and was ugrccably disappointed.
Between fifteen and twenty cars
wore blown from the tracks of
tho Illinois Central railroad, just
above Cairo, and fell so as to
blockade tho main track, which detained
the 4 :20 passenger train for Chicago, and
prevented the pay car coming in.
An old barrack, standing on Thirteenth
street, near Poplar, and occupied by Tom
Clark, as a blacksmith shop, was blown
down and lies in a heap over all its contents.
The littlo Cairo und Mound City packet,
A. B. Safford, which was lying at tho foot
of Eighth street, was stranded, and sus
tained some Blight damages. She could
not bo gotten oil' and repaired in time to
make her regular trip.

northwest corner, over the sheriff's and
treaiur(r's offices, was blown off. Valuable
books and papers were removed by Circuit
Clerk Irviu an 1 Deputy Assosor
Olmstcad, before setimn damage occinred.
Part of tho roof is lying on Twentieth
street, the remainder is rolled up like a
scroll, and lies on t"p of the roof agaiust
one of the chimneys.
Part of the tin roof of Mr. Win. Eich
hoff'sfeed mills was torn off.
The tin roof on the residence of Mr. John
Hagey, near the corner of Seventeenth and
Locust streets, was alio scrolled.
A new fence and wood thud, recently j ut
up back of No. 10 Winters' row, was blown
down and out of shape.
Perhaps the most extensive damage,
though of course in itself of small money
value, was done to the many fine shade
trees in nearly all parts of the city, which
it took years to rear, were the pride ot their
owners, and will take years to replace. Chief
among these were several of tho beautiful
trees in Col.S. S. Taylor's oflice yard; a line
elm tree standing in front of Captain
Thomas Sproat's residence, at the corner of
Sixth street and Washington avenue; a
large Cottonwood tree on Sixth street, near
Walnut, which took with it part of the side
walk; one standing in front of Mr. R. P.
Robbins' residence on Seventh street; sev
eral on Nineteenth street, back of Washing
ton avenue, and on Pino street above Twen
tieth, and thoso which were badly dis
figured arc almost innumerable.
It was rumored that the storm hud done
considerable damage at Carmi, Jonesboro
and St. Louis; at the latter place a portion
of the great Southern Hotel was fluid to
have been blown down, burying a largo
number of people. But of the truth of
these rumors there is no evidence, except
ing that the storm certainly came from
the direction of thoso places, and must have
passed over them with ruinous effects.
