-It appears that all tho bad gunners
were not inside tho Egytian fortifications
the other day. We are now informed that
tho English guns wero fired very wildly.
It seems that these modern monsters of
ordnance are not very easily managed,
while the great clouds of Binoke which the
immenso quantities' of powder used neces
sarily make, render it almost impossible to
sen how tho guns Blumld bo aimed. It is,
of course, impossible to form a judgment
from the insufficient descriptions as yet re
ceived of tho Alexandria tight, but it looks
very much as if the big guns and heavy
armored vessels had fallen fur below ex
pectations, As usual the experts disagree. Some
of tho trained artillerists who witnessed thu
bombardment at Alexandria declare that it
was one of the finest exhibitions of scien
tific gunning ever given. Others assert that
it was a most woeful waste of ammunition,
on account of shots falling short. The de
tailed account of tho two days' engage
ment mentions 1,500 yards, or about twice
the width of our river, as tho distance be
tween vessels and forts. If this bo ap
proximately correct, it would bo wonderful
indeed had such a magnificent tloit on calm
water failed, even with poor management,
to tear nny ordinary fortress to pieces in a
few hours. The Egyptians are probably
satisfied with thu exhibition, however.
If tho star route developements had
only come out a couple of years ago Kellogg
would huve been waltzed out of the senate
to lively niu.ic, and that body would never
have got luto tho bands of the Republican
party. Now ho will most likely sit out his
full term, for nothing will ever persuade
the Republican party to expel him. Unless
lie should bu convicted in tho star route
trials and sent to tho penitentiary before
the 4th of Merch next, ho will not have his
term curtailed by anything disclosed to his
discredit, however damaging the disclosures
may be. Ilia voto is wanted altogether too
badly to permit tho Republican party to
indulge in nny show of virtue.
The pilot of the steamer Loinas, which
made a sepulclier of the Scioto, admitted
before a coroner's jury that he had never
piloted a boat before on that part of the
river. This, taken in a connection with the
engineer's testimony as to a weird, wild,
confusion of signals that came to him
from the pilot house just before thu col
lison, suggests that Ohio river bout owners
consider one as good deckhand as another
when it comes to selecting a pilot for an
excursion. If the bereaved relatives of the
half hundred victims of that disaster
should go running for tho aforesaid bout
owners, lawabidinj people would not lie
exceedingly blamablu if they stood aside

-Some of the buildings near the Alex

that when struck by one of the carloads of

of tho late cyclonic engagements in this
and neighboring states we suggest the ap
pointment of a committee for the jrpose
of learning what material the Alexandrians
use. Such houses as those described by
the dispatches would afford tho ordinary
cyclone a grim sort of surprise, and wo
would feel a greater degree of confidence
as to tho location of our prairie towns from
one day to another. More consei vatihin in

m An interesting programme was carried

success for "Lon John." It was a lino

After all the peculiar atmospherical phe
nomena of tho spring ami summer season,
thus far, of 1 883, our harvest is past and
we havo reaped bountiful crops of every
thing planted or sown. Wheat tlircshingis
now on the tapis, aud tho yield for Union
county will not fall under twenty bushels
per aero on general average. Oats was
never better, and the corn crop is in fine
condition, so that tho prospects for future
prosperity is good.
Let tho average business man, or farmer,
of Union county, on going to bod to-night,

ccivo tho Republican nomination for con

shown up in The Bulletin, and -e are

.!. R. THOMAS NOMINATED
BY THE REPUBLICANS OF THE
A FT K 11 MUCH WRANGLING AND MANY DIH
GRACEFUL SCENES TUEY CONCLUDE
BY MAKING TUB NOMINATION
As stated in yesterday's Bulletin, tho
lateness of the hour to which Thursday's
Republican congressional convention in this
city wero carried, prevented a full report
of all that was done by the convention in
that session. Tint Bulletin's report yes
terday morning concluded with thu report
of tho committee on credentials, to the
effect that tho delegations from all the
counties of tho district, excepting Akx to
iler, wero entitled to seals on the floor with
out question, and with regard to tho latter
county's delegation majority and minority
repoits were offered.
Upon tho hearing of this report little
confusion was manifested as it was antici
pated by ull, but n number of speeches were
made, the most forcible of which was that
of McFoe, of , who presented the
esse of tho Thomas delegation in a concise
mainier, showing in detail the gross iu in
ner in which thu D.imron precinct dele
gations wero selected. Mr. Mi: Fee was
lollowed by n number of other gentlemen
of both colors, mostly advocating or
denouncing Hon. John R. Thomas and say
ing but littlo that wus pertinent to the
question before the house. Up to this
time thu best of order and feeling had pre
vailed, but in this discussion confusion
began, the lie was passed between mem
bers a di . .u times or more, personal ex
plmiatiotH were attempted and cried down,
threats of physical violence wero heard,
loud hollowing, violent gesticulation and
bitter personal denunciations were the or
der, mul the chairman was unable to control
the meeting, or hear or put any of tho mo
tions made. Prof. Brownlee managed
finally to gain tho attention of thu house
and succeeded in restoring order. Tho
previous question was called for; a vote
was taken to see whether or not the pre
vious question should be put, and thu mo
tion was lost by a vote of 117 to ;t8.
The discussion of thu motion or amend
ment to substitute the minority for the ma
jority report was then resumed, aud during
its continuance, thu honor of making thu
most emphatic, tho loudest, the longest, the
shallowest and thereloro thu most tiresome
speech of tho cntiru session, was carried
awny by thu chairman of thu Williamson
county delegation, who was iu favor of "ex
pediting" the business of the convention
in tho interest of tho anti -Thomas faction.
But tho gentleman's speech certainly had
powerful effect upon thu convention. It was
listened to(?) without a word of renum
strancu; all was still in tho auditorium and
in tho convention, except that, now and
then, a half suppressed yawn and a healthy
snore, also some softly muttered rnalodic
tions, could be heard from different parts
of the houBo.
It was 2 o'clock yosterday morning be
fore tho chair callod for tho votes by coun
ties upon tho motion to substitute tho mi
nority for the majority report of the com
mittco on credentials.
Tho chair called the counties and tho
chairmen of tho delegations responded as
Ayes Jackson, 22; Johnson, 15; Perry,
18; Pulaski, 3; Union, 3; Williamson, 19--
tolal, 80. Nays MaSBae, 15; Pope, 10;
Pulaski, 0; Randolph, 27; Union, 8 total,
While this voto was being taken, and
when the chairman of tho Johnson county
delegation cast tho full voto of the del
egat ion, another member of the delegation
arose and changed this announcement, de
claring that six of the Johnson county del
egation would voto "no on tho question
under consideration. Another member of
tho delegation stated that thu chairman
had cast tho vote of the delegation in ac
cordance with instructions received byhiui
from tho delegation at a meeting held in
the morning, which were to the effect that
upon all questions arising during temporary
organization tho vote of the
delegation should be cast as a
utiit. But the six opposing de
legates in spite of whoso protestations this
rule had been adopted rufused to stand by
it and demanded that their votes upon the
question before tho house bo rendered neg
atively. Tho chair refused to accede to
this demand, because, to have done so,
would have defeated the motion to adopt
the minority report of tho committee on
credentials and resulted in the admission
of tho Thomas delegation of Alexander
county to toe convention. This refund
on the part of tho chair to recog
nize tho right of delegates to
vote as they might choose was the sig -ml
for the beginning of a scene which lasterJ
over aa hour and a half, and surpassed in
fury and undecenr.y most of any riot of i.uy
maddened mob anywhere at any time.
While tho disorder was already at a high
stage tho chairman added more fuel to the
raging firo of excitement by entirely ignor
ing the motion of Mr. Brown, of Massac
county, to recall tho roll of counties for the
purpose of verifying the voto cast. The
majority of the convention at once rose to
their feet, some of them stood upon seats,
others crowded the aisles and the orchoftra
box all protecting loudly either against
each other. It was a perfect bablo of loud
voices of men maddened beyond control,
during which cures, and obscene epithets,
and violent physical denunciations,
and insano threats, were sicn
and heard above tho awful turmoil.
It was a most disgraceful see no and
tho rulings which hail provoked it were
considered so shamelessly unfair to the
Thomas delegation that the dividing lints
between tho different factions were lost
sight of for the time being, ami the whole
convention was divided in two bodies
one demandfng justice for the Alexander.
county Thomas delegation and the other
crying loudly in support of the chair.
While tho confusion and noiso was
at its highest, tho anti-Thomas
taction managed to carry a vote for
adjournment, though how it wus done none
but the chairman and thu anti-Thomas fac
tion know. Hereupon the factiou which
had adjmnicd left the floor of the conven
tion, while the others remained, reorgan
ized, but also adjourned after having de
cided to appear again soon after daylight
to insist that jusitico be done to
the wronged Alexander county Thomas
delegation. It was nearly four o'clock
when the lust of the conventiou adjourned
to meet again at eight o'clock.
It was 'J :'M o'clock before the convention
was again called to order by Chairman
Dyer. Everybody seemed to bu in a good
h'iiuor, aud it seemed as though the trouble
had been amicably settled. Thu minutes
were called for, add after some delay they
were presented in instalments with numer
ous omissions. Objections wero raise I to
tho minutes because of these omissions, but
no changes wero made. A gentleman from
Johnson county desired to have the sec re
tary'B report, in wich tho voto of his county
had been recorded as a unit for thu substi
tutiou of the minority for tho majority rc
port of the committee on credentials,
corrected so as to read
nw "nny ami nino "yea." mo reason
given was that upon this question the chair
man ol thodulegation had not announced
the voto of his delegation correct. But the
chair, after ignoring tho gentlemau's mo
tion to correct tho report for som time, dur
ing which great confusion prevailed, do.
cided that the gentleman's motion was out
of order, giving tho silly decision that the
proceedings of thu convention at its previous
session had passed beyond tho control of
This decision callod forth another violent
outbursts of indignation from tho Thomas
faction, in w hich they wore joined by the
delegations from Pope, Pulaski, Johnson

ogations from the other counties wero
equally boisterous on tho sidu of the chair
Foul expressions, curses, bold charges of
dishonesty on tho part of the chair, wero
mingled with loud of applause and laughter
by the audience. Ia thu midst of tho con
fusion Mayor Thistluwood mounted a chair
and in ado an eloquent of energetic, power
ful speech of some minutes in length, do

The convention convened at 2;I!0 o'clock
p. in., pursuant to adjournment. A motion
to demand then-port of the committee on
permanent organization was lost,bccause the
chairmen of S'-vcnl of the delegations were
absent, confering, with a view to coining to
some amicaolo understanding as to the
cause of dissention iu the morning session.
The chairman appointed by the conf -r-
ence reported that no understanding could
be arrived at.
In accordance with a motion the chair-
!nan of tho committee oc permanent "reali
zation offered a minority and mnj rity re
port. The former reported Dr. Dyer as
chairman, and the latter reported Mr. W.
M. Murphy as chairman.
A motion to substitute the minority for
the majority report was earned in the same
maimer and with the same commotion as
previous questions of importance had been,
Massac, Pope, Pulaski, Union and Johnson
cotir.ty delegates again refusing to vote.
A motion to call the Williamson county
legation oy individuals in casting tiu-ir
voting was not recognized ty tho cimir. A
similar motion with regard to the Johnson
County delegation was lost.
A motion that the chairman of the Johu
son delegation cast the vote of the delega
tion as they may desire it cast, excepting
when voting for a candidate for congress,
was unauimously carried.
Tho report ot tho committee on reso

intervals. Tho chair called for the
police of tho city to interfere in the
kiuterest of order and peace, but as
there was no r?sp uise to this call, tho chair
man with a strong effort calmed himself,
sat down, and with admirable nonchaleuce
proceeded to read The Cairo Bulletin.
It was left to Prof. Brownlee to pour oil
upon tho troublous water and quiet was
restored in a littlo while.
Tho chair then entertained an appeal
from his decision, that it was now too lata
to correct the report of tho secretary, which
resulted in sustaining the chair. This was
accomplished by permitting the Damron
delegation from Alexander county, whoso
right to seats on the floor was involved in
the question at issue and who bad not been
allowed to vote upon that question concern
ing which a correction was asked, to vote;
and also by counting thu Johnson county
delegation, six of whom voted "nay," as a
unit for sustaining the chair.
The result was mora contusion
which was increased when tho
chair refused to allow the secretary to
tell, in answer to a request from a Ma.istc
county delegate, how the v.:te of the dele
gation from that county h id been recorded
upon thu question just decided, and also
refused to allow a recall of tho roll of
counties, for tho purpose of verifying thu
In reply to a calm, earnest nppealy for
fairness in his decisions, tho chair said ; "I
have neither the power nor tho inclination
to mako rule for tho government of this
convention." "We don't want you to make
rules for us," came the retort, "wo have a
right to and been trying to make rules for
At another time, just after Col. Brown, of
Massac county, had madu a dispassionate
and very smisiblo eonceliatory speech
and concluded by making a motion to recall
tho roll of tho counties for the purpose of
verifying thu voto taken upon tho question
to substitute tho minority for tho majority
report of the committee ou credentials,
which the chair stolidly refused to do, such
expressions as "go to" "d d cheat,"
"we'll nuvurbe harmonious as long as you're
chairman," "put him out," "why don't you
resign and let usoloct an honest man," etc.,
In order to remove, ns f ir as possible,
what causes of disturbance might exist,
Col. Willis moved to adjourn until 3
o'clock p. in., with the understanding that
the chairman of the several delegations
moot in one of tho parlors of tho Halliday
for the purpose of arriving upon some ami
of (he new congressional cenfrul commit-"

named to compose that committee: Alex

ers ; Johnson, W. R. Wiley ; Massac, J. D.
Young; Perry, C. T. Richards; Pope, B.
Travillion; Pulaski, R. M. Johnson;' Ran
dolph, C. J. Childs; Union, T. II. Phillips;
Williamson, J. W. llartwell.
For members at large, Judge J. J. Bird,
W. T. Scott. W. R. S. Whcatley and Mr.
McFee, were nominated.
Judge Bird rose to decline, but was not
recognized by the chair, and tho gentlemen
who placed the judge in nomination with
drew the nomination. The viva voce vote
take upon tho name of Mr. Me Fee was an.
nounced affirmatively, but that taken
upon tho name of U n. W. T. Scott
was clearly in the negative and was bo an
nounced by tho chair. But a roll call of
the counties was asked for to decide be
tween Mr. Whcatley and Mr. Scott with tho
following result, w hich shows thr.t the gen
tlemen not having tho courage to vote as
thely did before:
bcott: Alexander, 1G; Jackson, 22: John

Williamson, 19 total, 8S. Wheatley:
Johnson, 7 (div.); Massac, 15; Cope, 15;
Pulask',7 (dir.); Randolph, 27; Union, 11
total, 82. Before the vote ws announced,
Massac county changed four of its votes
over to Scott, and Perry, two of hers to
Wheatley, making Scott's mijority tight
instead of six.
y A motion was then undo that the roll of
counties be called, and that each county
as its name is called present its candidaio
for congress, i f it has any to present, and
the following was the result: Jackson,

A motion to adjourn alter the first ballot
was lost, and balloting then began. The
first ballot gave Thomas, 09; Damron, 31;
Youno, 31 ; Smith, 22; Fountain, 18. After
tho sixlh ballot the convention adjourned
to uv.'ot again after supper. This ballot
stood just as the first and as all interme
diate bal'ots had stood, excepting that threo
of the Pulaski delegates had forsaken
Young and gone for Tho;nas, giving tho
latter Beveuty-one votes.
After eight o'clock the convention re
convened and after some motions of minor
importance had been disposed of balloting
was again begun. During the seventh and
eighth ballots there was much dely, some
of the delegations withdrawing for con

made during these ballots. The

in the election of Hon. John R.
