A resolution in lavor or suouimmg an
amendment to the people, prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxicants in II-
iuois. It is almost a party figiit Repub
licans favoring it and Democrats opposing
it. Representative Liuegar made a long
and powerful speech against it Wednes
day. There is sime intimation that, in view
of the reduction ot the internal revenue by
the late congress, the number of districts
and collectors will be reducedin the near
future, and that iu the reduction Illinois
will probably lose two dibtricls. In conse
quence of this intimation there is some un
easiness among Internal revenue collections
in this state and others, inc'uling, of
count;, General Pavey, of this district, for
there is as yet no telling where the official
axe will fall if it falls at all.
Mr. Harry Walker returned yesterday

for his Theatre Comique here and he did so.
Several hundred new, neat, comfortable

be placed in the Comique instead of the
chairs now used, and some cither important
improvements will be made in addition to

the theatre will be one of the cosiest and
most attractive ic the state.

G. O. M., G. G. M. T., G. G. E. and G. G.
everything else, and got all the newspaper
renown for being all these. The result was
that his fellow aspirants for the leadership
scowled upon him with green in their eyes;
tho dissatisfaction culminated in open re
bellion against tho eelf-constituted bw;
the house was divided against itself, aDd
it fell as others havo fallen before it.
Mr. W. II. Campbell has sold the
Charleston Courier to Messrs. W. J. Hill

lishers may proper as Mr. Campbell did.
In concluding his farewell editorial .Mr.
Campbell refers thus to a young man well
known in this city by reason of his long
connection with The Bulletin and Argus
here: "We part company with our blonde
foreman with much regret. He has served
us faithfully and well. Our readers little
know how much they have been indebted
to R. G. Stewart tor the prompt and neat
appearance of the Courier the past twelve
months. Wherever ho may go he shall
carry our warmest wishes and personal in-
terfRt. We commend him to tho press at
large, as a workmen of superior skill and
It seems that after all. the Argus erred
io its judgment, that tho recall of the
Mound City bill from tho governor was the
result of a bold scheme on the part of the
opponents of Mr. Linegar'e Levee bill, by
which they ssught to remove the obligation
Senator llogan was under to Mr. Linegar
on account of the lattcr's aseititauco In pas
sing the Mound City bill through the house
and thus causo Mr. Uoao to forsake Mr.
Linogar's bill in tho somite. At any rate,
if there was such a scheme, it did non suc
ceed, for the house refused Thursday to re
consider tho vote by which the Mound City
bill had been passed, and tho bill went
again to the governor for his Bignaturo.
Tho reason why the bill was recalled, was
probably because it was a very plain case
of special legislation, which is strictly pro
hibited by the constitution of tho state;
but it is a just measure nevertheless, lor it
only gives to Mound City what by act of a
former legislatuic was due it from the
Missouri Republican: "Somewhat dts

A few days ago Mr. Alex. Leonard, of
this city paid Bloomington a visit and tho
Bulletin of that city noticed his presence
in the following complimentary manner:
"Alex. G. Leomiad, one of tho most intelli
gent aud brilliant colored men in Illinois,
arrived iu this city last evening, and will
remain hero for several days. Leonard is
about thirty years ot ago. He never had
any schooling save that he got in a printing
office. He is a good newspaper compoai.
tor and worked at the case in various
towns iu the southern part of this
stnto until a few years ago, spending the
few leisure hours that came to him each
day iu reaching. He finally becamo con
versant with political matters, and was sent
out by the Republican state central com
mittee during the Hancock-Garfield cam
paign to take the stump, and did effective
work wherever he spoke. Leonard for the
past two years has been running a paper
called the Gazette, at Cairo, but a few days
ago sold it, and is now out for a trip
through this p ut of the country sight-seeing.
It is quite likely that he will bo called
upon to deliver an address on Thursday
evening when the colored people of this
city will celebrate the ratification of the
fifteenth amendment. Leonard a short
time ago, prepared a lecture which he calls
the "Negro in Politics," that is pronouueed
by able white orators to be one of the best
productions of that kiud ever given to tho
public by a colored man."
There is reason to believe now that
State's Attorney James M. Dtmrnu
will not return to this city to
fill his office and perform its
duties in his own peculiar way until the
expiration of his term, but that he has
"gone for good," to seek fresh fields and
pastures new that will afford opportunities
for the full exercise of his predominant pro
pensities. The reason for this conclusion
was furnished by Mrs. Damron herself, who
has resided at Anna for some months. In
conversation with a Cairoite Thursday she
intimated that the uncomfortable position
in which Mr. Dararon bad been placed here
of late, by legal proceedings, etc., h.i 1 m ide
it i npossiblc for him to make a living here
and induced him to leave; but although ulie
knew where her husband was, she studioueJ
ly avoided revealing his whereabout.'. She
said that ho had left a week ago I ist S itur
dav. promising to lot her hear from him by
way ot a money order, in time to prevent
the foreclosure of a mortgage held by the
Cairoite in question on the household goods
there. Thereupon the mortgagee left the
goods h her possession appointing her their
custodian. Mrs. Damron has for some time
been suffering with rheumatism and iscomj
polled now to move about on
crutches. She bears up bravely
under her misfortunes and de
fends her husband earnestly against all at
tacks from knowing ones. During her
residence here she gained the highest re
spect and esteem of all with whom she
came in contact, and she has now the cin
cere sympathy of her many friends here,
although, no doubt, she doesn't think her
self a sufijcct for sympathy.
David Strousc, Esq., Attorney-at Law, of
New Haven, Conn., says: "I was attacked
with severe rheumatism. I used one bot
tle of St. Jacobs Oil, rubbing well three
times a day, and obtained instant relief and
a perfect cure."
