It is believed that the Alexander coun

anti-Thomas delegates. Perhaps tho
Thomasites believe thenuelves amply vin
dicated by the nomination, which was accoui
plished however without recognizing their
claims to seiisjn tlTo convention. A fail
ure to fight for their seats as long as there
is any fight to uiako would 9eeni very
much like an acknowledgement that then
claims wero not good, a conclusion which
everybody who knows the facts will vehe
mently d eny.
It is confidently asserted that Jay
Gould has purchased tho Mobile and Ohio
railroad and will consolidate that road and
the Wabash, St. Louis & Pacific and then
will extend tho former from Mobile into
New Orleans so as to get a more direct
competing line with tho Illinois
Central road and ami its
New Orleans branch. Although there is
no positive information to this effect, yet
tho idea is so reasonable, ami tho rumor
is so positive aud comes from such a reliable
source that there can be but little doubt of
its truth. Further developements will prob
ably occur within tho next few days.
Yesterday Mr. Louis J. Koehler, re
ceived a letter from States Attorney J. J.
Russell, of Charleston, Mo., askiug him to
como to that city and testify in tho case of
ono Cricket who was here about two weeks
ago and sold a heifer which was after
wards found to havo been stolen. The
heifer was offered to Mr. Louis Koehler
who offered a fair price which was refused
by Mr. Cricket. The animal was finally
bought by Mr. Lulu Koehler at a slightly
advanced price. Tho animal was worth
about sixteen dollars, enough to send
Crickot up. Mr. Koehler will go and give
the necessary testimony.
Tho price of plain "drunks" ought to
bo increased in this city. It is too cheap.
"One dollar and costs" is oo little lor bo
large a luxury. Besides, J'ono dollar aud
costs" iB becoming monotonous. Wo ought
to have a change in the phraseology. It
has no terrors, any more, for the druukards.
A higher figure would secure fewer ciibcs
and moro money, and less drunkenness
would afford much Uss fun for tho man, but
bo better for tho man's family. We notice
that tho regulation price for drunks in most
other cities is from five to eight dollars and
costs. Will our polico justices "catch
on?" They will not.
During thu threo days ending yesterday
a grand display of celestial fireworks was to
havo been visible from this earth. "Tho
earth," said the astronomico editor of the
Providence Journal, "then plunged through
tho domain of tho erratic member of the
system known as the August meteor zone.
This zone is a gigantic eel ipso or hoop
whose perihelion is within tho earth's orbit,
and whoso aphelion reaches beyond tho or
bit of Neptune." We are not awaro that
nny citizen of Cairo noticed any signs of the
presence around us of any unusual light.

and that local optiou prevailed at Mt.
Tho Reaublican congress, which cumo
in with such self-glorification and such
bitter condemnation of the Democrats, has,
in plain words, made a very conspicuous
ass of itself. The Republican tmijoiuy has
occupied itself chiutly in hoisting" legally
elected Democrats out of their seats and
resisting all efforts to secure a genuine re
duction of tho heavy taxation imposed on
the people. This Republican congress has
neglected important legislation to work for
psirty and only party. It has increased tho
appropriations over last year by about f W,
000,000. It has turned its back on civil
service reform aud all measures of economy.
Tho Republican party has shown itself
utterly incapablo of taking charge of pub
Some time ago a horso was stolen from
some parties in Pinckucyville, III. The
horso was hired by a man named "Dr."
Hamilton, who was formerly connected
with Mr. John A. Reeve in the auction
business in this city and is well
known hero as a very flu
ent talker. Tho "Dr." took the horse
pretendiug that he intended to use
him for but a little while, but
he did not return, aud tho' owner of the
animal sent officers out iu search of him.
Wednesday afteruoon'an officer from Pinck
neyvillo passed through thiscity having in
charge "Dr." Hammilton whom ha
overtook near Metropolis whero the "Dr."
had sold the horse for a comparitively
small cash price. The "I)r."will proba

A whit man named Patrick Curtain,
who has been in tho employ of Mr. J. B.
Reed tor some time, and was discharged
last Saturday tor being addicted to the too
frequent nud too copious use of intoxicants,
gained forcible entrance to Mr. Reed's ma
chine shops on Ohio levee Wednesday
night, broke open a tool cheht
belonging to another employe, took
therefrom a square, a hand vice, a lot of
scrapers, trail edos, ceilepers,etc, valued
in all at about thirty dollars, and sold
them for anything ho could get lor them
from five to fifteen cents each. Several
cellepers worth from two to threo dollars
he sold for five unAl ton cents each and
spent the money for whisky. He was ar
rested and brought before Magistrate
Comings yesterday for examination, but
before tho trial had proceeded very far tho
court discovered that the prisoner was too J
drunk for trial and ordered him to be

Well informed writers make it very
plain why English operations iu Egypt for
the protection of the Suez canal are not
confined to tho line of that work and its
margins. Those employed on the canal and
the population of the towns on its courae
aresupplied with fresh water by an acequia
cut from tho river Nile above Cairo, and
havo no other means ot securing this essen
tial element of life. With an unfriendly or
rebellious population occupying the delta
of the Nile aud the fruitful regions to and
beyond Cairo, the possession of the canal
would bo precarious and wholly unsatis
factory. To be master of the situation all
that portion of Egypt as far south as the
source of the fresh water supply must be in
friondly hinds or in tho power of those who
occupy and hold the canal. Hence Eng
land's refusal to see the forts at Alexandria
strengthened against herself by a com
mander in quasi rebellion and openly hostile
to British interests. The first step, there
fore, toward holding tho Suez canal by
forco and not by the sufferance of au inimi
cal local government was to occupy or at
leapt to command Alexandria.
An exchange says: "Never whip
children just before they go to rest. Let
tho father's caress the mother's kiss is the
last link between tho day's pain or pleas
ure an 1 tho night's sleep. Sand tho chil
dren to bed liHppy. If there is sorrow,
punijlunont or disgrace, let them meet it in
the daytime, and have hours of play and
thought in which to recover happinoss. Let
tho weary foot, tho busy brain, rest in bed
happy." That may bo all right of course.
Wo don't profess to have ever been iu a po
sition to find out, and do not
know muc'i about tho art
of raising children, but we havo in

parts of the city who, we nro reliably in

Barton's Free Press: "Tho appropiia
tion for the Mississippi river has been ob
taiuod. Which of the Republican papers of
the district will tell us what Mr. Thomas
had to do with the passage of tho bill)
Wo are just champing our bit and pawing
tho earth to get into the congressional
battle, and aro only waiting for tho weapons.
We want to annihilate Barr, or Washburn,
or Albright, or llartzoll, or Crawford, or
any other man the Democrats may brim;
out, and the only artillery we desiro is
Congressman Thomas' record on the ap
propriation bills. That will fix our enomy,
whoever he may be. Give us tho record."
Barton displayed remarkable tact
and energy iu hunting up and
watching Capt. Thomas' record before the
latter' nomination ; has ho now suddenly
become blind and paralizod that ho calls
upon others to give him what is daily
placed before his eyes in tho dispatches
from Washington? Too record Is near at
hand, Brother IS u ion; it is as easy of ac
cess to you us to iny oilier Republican ed
itor, but you c.'i i noi, yo.i d iro not, use it
as a weapon of defense for Thomas and of
offense agi'uut his I) unocratic opponent,
wdioever ho may be. It would prove,
even in your able h mds, a worse than use
less thing; it would prove to thos) who
trusted in it to he troacherous; it would
wound those who used it. Your resolution
to be "blind, deaf and dumb" to Captain
Thomas' claims to a third term iu con
gress is no doubt tho result of a thorough
acquaintance with tho captain's record
and a desire to promote tho interest of the
party by suppressing it. In that resolu
tion lies your own and tho party' only
hope of escape from certuin defeat. But
your silence shall not triumph. The truth
you would withhold for tho good of the
Republican party shall bo heralded abroad
nevertheless, and Tiik Bullktin will do
its share of tho heralding.
Tho St Louis Republican looks upon
the appointment of the Mississippi river
examining committee appointed by con
gross Tuesday, anil which is to meet in
this city in Novemeber for the purpose 'l
examing the government work on the
Mississippi river, as a scheme to "thwart
and obstruct the work in question." It
says: "The subl!matvd confidence in tho
triumph of tho right nud chivalric defer
enco to the demand of enemies might bo
excusable iu these gentlemen from the
banks of thu Mississippi Hnd Missouri
rivers if they wero acting only with refer
erence to their own individual affairs, but
they had uo right to take any such loose
view of a question which so deeply con
cerned tho greatest interest of their con
stituencies. Tho Missouri and Illinois
aiembers who sat in dumb silenco and neg
lected so obvious and important a duty as
was imposed upon them when tho enimies
of their constitutients were bo active and
alert, and weru acting through agents s
conspicious, deserve the strongest kind of
rebuke." Captain Thomas was one of the
menbers who sat "in dumb silence, etc."
He is even a member of the obstruction
committee; his record on the river and
harbor bills during his terms of office is
not such as would givo people to under
stand that he is an enthusiastic supporter
of the improvement of the Mississippi.
He lias had greater oppoitunities to do
good iffectivo work' tlnn -any of his prede
cessors havo had.. As a member of this
last committee, he bus' another great op
portunity to make himsotC felt
iu the right direction to redetAn
himself ;will he do it? The meeting
of tho committee hero is to take place im
mediately after tho election in November,
when his action need not be influenced by
any personal considerations. Whatever he
may do then may be looked upon as being
dictated by his true feelings with reference
to the question of greatest importance to
his constituents. In the meantime we shall
fight him and seek t defeat him, because of
his past record which convicts him of be
ing anything but a friend of Mississippi

In the same bill, the sundry civil service
bill, which contained the fifteon-thousand-dullar
appropriation for the cemetery road
at Mound City, contained also an appropri
ation of sixty thousand dollars to bo ex
pended iu the erection of a government
marine hospital at this point. A dispatch
from Washington, under date of August 4,
says of this matter:
