The Democratic senatorial convention at
Joncsboro yesterday nominated Hon. D. T.
Lihegar, of this city, and Sidney Omar,
Esq., ot Jonoshoro, as the Democratic can
didates for the legislature in this district.
An incident of special interest in con
nection with the investigations of the com
mittee on credentials ut the Arab engine
house yesterday afternoon was a dispute
and nearly a physical bout between Slate's
Attorney Dainron and a negro named Clem
Young, w ho had asserted that for a ecu tain
consideration given him by Judge Damron,
he had voted for the judge at the First
ward primary, and that a number of others
had been likewise "intimidated." The
state's attorney, of course, took the judge's
part, vehemently denied Young's assertion,
called him a liar and each was about to
assault the other when friends interfered.
Governor Culloni, Chief llevenue Ot
licer lliiiini, and several other Uepublienu
office holders havo their eyes lixol, with
ardent gaze, upon tho capacious seat of
David Davis in the United States senate.
They are assuming that the next legislature
will havo a reliable It 'publican majority.
They are looking so intently at the seat iu
the senate that they fail to observe the
ditches and hedges that may obstruct the
way of any Republican who may hope to
succeed David Davis. Cook county occa
sionally changes and gives a Democratic
majority. The representation of Cook
county in the legislature is greatly increased
by the last apportionment Ihw; and a Dem
ocratic majority in that county will give
the Dein icrats a ui'ij iiity in the next legis
lature, to say nothing of thu probable gain
of two senators and three membeis of the
IioUmo in S.iuihcru Illinois.
The senatorial district composed of the
counties ot Franklin, Williamson, Johnson
and l'ulaski was carved out to gratify the
ambition of an ehhuly member of the Re
publican party. I'o was jostled out of the
way and a younger man became the Republi
can candidate. Kvil ilisposed persons of the
Republican party even charge that this
younger man secured his nnmiuution by a
shameless tnnfj. V' neither know nor
care about the truth or fasity ot thecharge.
We know it was bad Republican manage
ment to make the district iu tho shape it
was made; and we know it was worse man
agement for the Republicans to nominate
the younger man we refer to, The district
is essentially Denmcratier ami there is
nothing iu the Republican candidate. to
arouse enthusiasm, lie may bu a bundle
of good manners and a virtuous model.
We shall leave to his own party to label
his virtues and vices if he has any. lie
is a "boss;" aud if thu Democratic party
should nominate a man of ability and elo
quence, there will lie music In the district,
aud a Democratic majority in November.
Tho city of Alexandria, now being bom
barded by the English fleet, has increased
Irom 11,001) a century ago to 300,000 at the
present day. The modern city is built on
the isthmus connecting the mainland with
the island uf Pharos and on thu island itself.
The new streets, like the Uuo Has el Teen
and the Hue do Meidan, present thu aspect
of a European city, but in the Turkish (pun
ter tho streets are nairow and dirty. The
new embankment along the eastern harbor,
and the new buildings on the great square
of Meheiii"t Ali, have added greatly to the
attractiveness of thu city. The palace ol the
pasha and the lofty harem first strike the
the stranger's attention on entering the city.
Among the other largo buildings are the
custom house, the ancnal, the medical, na
val and other schools. The Place Mohcinct
Ali, or grand squaru of the consuls, where
the greater part of the massacre in the re -cent
riots took place, is the center ot Euro
pean Alexandria. The old houses recall
somowhet those of Italian seaports. On
this squ ire are the principal hotels, bankers,
steamship oil ices, and the dwellings of
most of the consuls. At each extremity of
the square is a fountain, which at sun-rise
and sunset is surrounded by Arabs pel form
ing their ablutions. Thu pasha's palace is
finely situated facing the sea, and is sur
rounded by beautiful guidons. The grand
slaircasn is of Carrara marble. The build
ings of the harem stand opposite the pal
ace. At the Democratic senatorial conven
tion, held at Joneshoro, III., yesterday, for
the purpose of nominating two nioinhi is to
tho house of representatives, Hon. Thos.
Wilson, of Alex iinh r county, was elected
chairman, and Mr. T. F. Ronton, secretary.
A committee consisting o ( loo. 1C. Olm
sted, llmi. White and Mr. Greer worn ap
pointed by the chair as a committee on cre
dentials, which committee reported that all
counties constituting tho district were fully
represented, and that there were no contest
iug delegates. Hepmt fully approved and
heartily endorsed and committee dis
charged. Nominations being next in order,
Mr. Geo. K. Olinstead, of Alexander, placed
in nomination the Hon. David T. Linegar.
Upon the call of Jackson county, tho Hon.
V. E. Albright arose and stated that Jack
son county had no nomination to oifer be
fore thu convention, fur tho reason that said
county it already represented in tho ttato
uuuto. Home gentleman from Union put
in nomination Mr. Sidney Greer, upon
which Mr. Win. McIUlu, of Alexander,
moved that the nominations bo closed and
the gentlemen be unanimously nominated,
which motion prevailed. The con
vention then proceeded to select a senato
rial coinmitleo for tho ensuing two years,
whereupon were selected While, of Jack
son; Wilson, of Alexander, and Ronton, of
Union, and at largo, lion. Monroe C. Craw
ford, of Union, and Hon. F. K. Albright,
of Jackson. Motion to adjourn then being
made by Mr. Mcll de, of Alexander, the
convention adjournud slnu die.
The feeling against tho Wabash, St.
Louis and Pacilic railroad, among busiue s
men and citizens generally living along
Commercial avenue in the lower and upper
portions of the city, bocauso of the very
bad condition of the tracks uf said road in
Haul portions, has become stoadily stronger
until it now amounts to an indignation that
may break out in a forcible manner before
very long, unless tho objection is removed.
Aud tliero is good cause for this feeling.
Thu tracks of the road iu tho parts of the
city named are in bad condition, that is,
Ihey do not at all comply with tho ordi
nances giving the company ri'lit of way
down the avenue. Instead of being at a
grade even with tho top of the aveuuo and
made easily passable at any point by veh
icles of any description, the
tracks, at tho points men
tioned, stand fit ly half a font above the
level of the avenue on both sides and form
an effectual obstruction to all vehicle
trallic. This condition is partly due to thu
fact that tho avenue below Sixth street was
very badly paved some years ago and is
now below the established gi i do, but it is
not all due to this fact. The railroad com
pany is not doing all it should do and that
it is i quired to do in order to render the
condition of its tracks in conformity to the
ordinHiie.e.. Rut this is not all. Another
objection, and a very serious one to those
living below Sixth street, is tiiat there is
almost const mt switching on that part of
thu street, and long rows of freight cars are
left standing in front of the business houses
day atter day. Trallic is thus obstructed
aud business of every kind is very seriously
interfered with. In consequence of this a
loud clamor has for some time been nude
by a few of thesubstillitial property owners
along the avenue for the forcible removal of
the Hacks of the company from Couimei-
cial avenue; but this clannr is, of
course idle, for in the nature of things
it cannot be complied with. The compa
ny s right to ni'iintain its trncKs on L' in
meicial avenue has been confirmed by high
judicial authority, and violent coercive
measures would havo an effect opposite to
that sought. Hat tho company can be
compelled to comply witli the coiidi'.ions
upon which tho right of way w is granted
anil with tho ordinances prescribing the
manner in which the tracks shall be in un
tamed ; and if the company does this as far
as possible, the opposition of those injured
by the present bad condition of thing- -V j 1 1
bo materially weakened.
LETTER FROM DIXON SPRING:!.

The weather so far has been rathrr arjniiiRt

particular. Uptotodny (Saturday, 8th)
arrivals fell short ol last year, but as the
weather grows wanner, letters commence
pooling in aud rooms tire engaged for 10th,
15th and 20th, and were it not that the
visits of some of the people will
end and they return home
with renewed strength for the
summer light for health, it would be im
possible to accommodate all who desire to
come. Your correspondent will reluctantly
make room next week for some one in search
of health, or recreation.

visitors find great improvements for their
comfort and convenience.
As 1 intimated in tho opening of this
letter, tho weather has kept many people
away for if when il is hot in either places
here it is cool, when cool ut Cairo it is colu
at Dixon Springs. The 4th and 5th of July
tho great old-fashioned lire-place was filled
with wood liivs around which thu shivcriii"
guests gladly gathered, told chimney
corner stories mid wondered "when it would
ever bo waim again." Thu number of peo
pie sojourning here up to yesterday could
havo almost been counted on your lingers
after the departure of the Cairo quartette

have a good time." Yesterday the arrival
ol a baker's dozen from Evansville to spend
the summer helped us out "amazingly,"
but then they weio ail women.

evident. Mrs. Langstall', of Paducah, w ho
is now hero, visits Dixon every season iu
preference to all other places, because a
couple of weeks of its pure nir and the use
ed its waters gives her the requisite strength
to withstand the debilitating effect eif tho
rest of the season. Ou her arrival hero a
week or two ago she had not strength to
walk to tho park, and now a "tramp" In the
falls is taken with little if any fatigue.
Another lady with faith in Dixon Springs
water and air, is Mrs. "Marsa"

hero to spend tho summer. Her fust
visit was inado three or four years
ago from Paducah, far gone it was thought,

YESTERDAY'S CONVEN HON.
The convention was called to orde r at
11 :SJ0 o'clock by Mr. C. N. Hughes, chair -man
ol the congressional central commit
tee, and the proceedings were opened by a
foiciablo prayer from Rev. J. A. Scuirott.
Dr. MtGee, of Metropolis, acted as secre
tary. The chairiuanatMiounced that ho had been
instructed by the coneressiemal central
committee to suggest the name of Jmlge
W. P. Murphy, of Randolph county, as
temporary chaiiiiian of tho convention and
asked that gentlemen of the convention
nominate other candidates.
Mr. T. Rurgoss, of Perry county, nomi
nated Dr. Dyer, of DuQ ioin, as a second
candidate for temporary chairman, to which
Ceil. Willis objected, believing that tho in
structions of the congressional committee
should bu carried out.
Mr. Rolnirta thought that the congres
sional committee had uo right to dictate to
the convention and say who should boils
temporary chairmau. Ho took this to bo
a Republican, not an office-holder's con
ventiejii, and thought that it was amply
able to take care of itself. Ho made a
forcible speech and was loudly applauded.
Judge Hint argued that thu central com
mittee, buing the representatives of the
voters of thu district, had a right to make
suggestions of the kind iu questions and
was but carrying out tho will of the people;.
Ho cited precedents whero tho recom
DJOudationB of control committees
