charged tho public. Tho understanding is
that the bill is aimed at the Western Union

A New Orleans dispatch to tho Galvrs
ton "News says: Messrs. Ackermau and Oi'
born, tho former president and tho latter a
large stockholder of tho Illinois Central
railroad, reached the city to-day and had a
long conference with Mr. James Clarke,
vice-president and general manager of the
road. It is understood that tho mission of
tho vi-itors is to induce Mr. Clarke to re
consider his recently announced resigna
tion. As a result of tho Ponforcncu it is
stated that Mr. C arke agreed to yield to
the wishes of M-Jssrs. A:keriinn and O s
borim on t .o condition that he was to bo
untirtnim-illed in his management. This,
it is understood, was agreed to and as a
consequence certain recent appointments,'

About tho Thomas movement in South
ern Iilinoie, the Bloomington Bulletin says:
"The battle for the United States senator
ship now occupied by Judgo David Davis
i- waxing warm among tho R"publicajs.
In Southern Illinois, Senator Dan Hogan,
wh ) ought t ) bi for Cullom, has aunounced
himself for Capt. John R. Thomas, the
member of congress from the Cairo district.
A unmbir of the prominent Republicans ot
thatdistii t, expecting to fill Capt. Thoin
i.s' pln"o in the lower house of congress,
are expected to lend their assistance in the
captain's elevation to the senatorship. The
only chance any of the aspiring Repub-
licansof the Twentieth district can have for
ye irs to come, is in Capt. Thomas' election
to the United States seuato. This Thomas
movement will weaken Gov. Cullom, and
may result in his defeat even if it does not
in the success of the captain."
From a b't'er, written by Capt. Thomas
lo Deputy Collector W. M. Murphy, of this
city, ih'cd December 10:h, we learn that
ou the day the letter was penned notice
was served on Oapt. Thomas by Capt. W.
K, Murphy, his Democratic opponent in
the hte election, that proceedings had been
instituted by the latter, contesting the right
of the formtr to a Beat in tho next federal
cotmress. This fact was stated in a single
lino at the top of tho letter, as though the
writer h id received the notice just after tho
letter had been fiuished.
Capt. Murphy w.u doubtless induced to
take this step by tho urgent requests which
camo to him in largo numbers from prom
inent Democrats in all parts of the district.
What tiic exact grouuds of his contest are
we do not know, but wo uuy safely assume
that they arc, iu his opinion at least, and in
that o! many other well-informed Demo
crats, sufficiently strong to justify this ac
ti n. That there oro some very suspicious
circumstances surrounding the results of
the lato election in some of the heavily Re
publican counties is too apparent to all who
have tukeu any trouble to iuforui themselves
with reftronco thereto, For some years
similar circumstances in tlm sumo coun
ties have attracted tho at
tention of Democratic leaders in
the district and mystified them; but did
not arouse them to action they were too
cowardly to take bold steps to have tho
mysteries cleared up.
This coutect of Capt. Mur
phy can not possibly do any harm--it
may do much good. Certainly,
no reasonable objection cin bo bj made to
an honest investigation; no sensible person
can object with any show of fairness to an
uupn jU'ilocd, open, thorough rccanvasof
the vote, and either a verification, or nulli
fication and reverse, of the uow acieptod re
sult of tho election, as the facts in the cao
might demand. Tho full vote honestly
counted may result iu proving the suspi
cions of some of tho knowing Democrats
true, and in Beatiug Capt. Murpy as the
man really entitled to tho honor. Bui wo
aro satisfied that Captain Murphy is an
honorable gentlemen ; wo wore satisfied of
this ever since we knew him, or we would
not have urged his election.
Therefore wo bulievo firmly
thut Iu will permit only an honest
investigation, and that if tho full vote fair
ly counted does not prove him to have been
elected, ho will williugly and cheerfully
give up to Captain Thomas; lm would
scorn to tako his seat even in congress by

tho step, ami rely entirely and trustingly

Democratic majority in the federal house,
for a full and scrupulously fair investiga
tion. But we give warning right here an 1
now, that we1 shall watch the proceedings

THE JElTIE-i A SUCCESS.
Capt. Eads' jetties at tile uiouill of the
Mississippi have bc'-n denounced as luilures
by the Cincii.n tti and Chic igo newspapers,
and by river crunks like Capt. Cowden
aud Capt Leathers., who have hobbies of
their own ou which they are constantly
riding and jobs bi h n 1 their deuuiici tliou
of the great work if the only mm who has
ever proved his ability to niiuagu the Mis
sissippi river. In vain the fact of a deep
ened chaeuel at the mouth of the Missis
sippi has been pointed to. The fact hm
been denounced as a falsehood, and it has
beeu intimated that the reports of a deep
channel are all paid for.
But on the Dili inst. Iho dispute between
Mr. Euls aud Cipt. Co.vden was tettled in
a conclusive m-uiner. Ou that ilsy the
English steamship Cirmoiia, the largest
vessel lb it ever entered the mouth of the
Mississippi, passed out between the jetties
into the gulf with the largest cargo of cot
ton ever carried from f.ti American port.
She had on board 10.331 bales of cotton
The great beam of the vessel caused her
to sit higti in water, but she was loaded to
a depth of twenty-four feet and eleven in
ches. The ship entered the head of South
pass at 2 :15 o'clock, and passed into th
gulf at 3 :"0 o'clock. There was no deten
tion ut auy point, tho passage being mado
in faster time thun the same vessel could
cover the same distance in the open gulf.

WHAT THE JETTIKS ARE DOING.
It is a little curious, if tho jetties at tho
mouth of tho Mississippi aro tho failure
they aro outrageously and falsely asserted to
bo by the opponents of the engineer who
constructed them, that they should have
done and ani doing s much for New Or
leans. Tho papers of that city inform us
.that last Friday night thir were fifty-four
steamships in port, and a few days before
thero wero sixty-live, and of sailing vessels
four ships, twenty three bailee, two brigs
and nine schoonoM- nuking eighty-three
ships in all, besides it''amb oats. Twenty
five of the steamers weic up lor Liverpool,
and the remainder for other foreign and
domestic ports. On Friday eveniiig thero
were on shipboatd n"t New Orleans,
108,(10(5 bah s of cotton, worth fi,000,000
an increase of about 43,00') bales over the
number on board ou the cotrcspondirg diy
of last year. 'J h'-re have bi en (xported
from New Orleans 000,000 bah s of cotton
in the hist huidred and twin'y days, being
an average of 5,000 bales a day. Among
the recent arrivals were three steam hips
in oue day, and among the recent depar
tures weie seven steamships in one day.
The receipts of Red liver cotton this siason
aro 2,000 bales in excess ot last; tho re
