the collision au-.l biukimr of the steanur

state that there were a great many pleas
in i- pas-ingirs on board the vessel.
There was a eleir moon last night. The

the large iron steamer Camden, just off

The liriti.-h brig Belle Star, from Nova

it-ported to have been in collision at sea
and the latter sunk and four of the crew
drowned. The rest of the crew are at

Ihe swallows, which migrated at the out
break of the pestilence, have not yet re
turned, and that there are no
hparrows at all iu the city, is ad
duced as evidence that the atmos
I here is still vitiated. This migration

for the people to do but to stare, just as

Cairo. 1 1 lino s.
the St ite Pi mocratic Convention at I'eoria
for the I'tHce of Lieutenant Govt nmr. In
tiie fullest and broadest Si-use of the term
he is a ipm man, a big-heaitcl an 1 gener
ous si tiled irieml and au etiti rtiri.-ing and
widi -awake citizen. But Fred llro-s is an
Importer and wholesale dealer in wines and
liquor and his periodical rounds among
his customers have been seized upon by
certhin "I'rohibiton" sheets as a text for un
warranted petsoniiljvillitieation. "He hunts
up the depraved amo'-g u-,'' savs the John
b m County Journal, "to sell them whisky
that he may further debauch our people,
and we hope he may soon enter upon some
ligitimnte and honorable business, that
will not debauch and demoralize our citi-
ns." This, of a man who is pursuing a
lawful and legitimate business and who ig
careful to yield obedience to every require
ment of the law, is so ungenerous and un
filed for that it is not only a gross affront
to Judge Bross, but to every honest, coiisci
rntious man engaged in the same business.
One can scarcely be too radical in tho pur
suit of the right, but such assaults upon one
of the best and most honorable men en
caged in the liquor traffic augurs badly for
the rr iliibition movement in Southern Illi
nois, and will prove so many boomerangs
to plague and cripple the source from
which they originate.-'
One little error i:i the above we deem
ecessary to correct. The Johnson County
Journal is not a ''Prohibition sheet," as in
timated by the Sun. It is a Republican
paper and U imbued with the same strong
Prohibition sentiment tt.&t pervades the
Republican party i very where, and is i:on-
stantiy growing (-tping'T. It ha, fr m the
firs', kept the ntirc Republican ticket at
the hea 1 of it-, local columns, from James
G. Blaina do.vu U the party nominee for
corou?r. And wiiy r.o'i hy should not
Re ublic m paper with strong Prohibition
proclivities f.ipp n t Mr. B!ain; heartily? If
Mr. R.uiiit is a good cnotigli Prohibitionist
for such ard'i.t, uncomj-.r-'mising. advocates
of the heresy as N""al Dow, why should he
not suit the Republico-Prohibitionists of
the cun'rv di, 'rets, and the Prolnbition-
''epub'ncao-and the Simon Pure Piuhibit-
ionists the anti-p rsonsl lilierty, anti-German,
anti-i'oreig!ier, sentiment everywhere?
Why r.o'.? He wa?, ir. many ways, a party
to tho Prohibition l i vs of Main.1, always in
sympathy w ,th the r hampions of these laws,
and alo'i the m et ardent advocate of know-
nothir.gtern in h:s State. It i3, therefore, not
to be won b red at that be should have the
support of all who favor these heresies.

Limits of Social Cn-Opcratiou.
Were all Englishmen now asked if
they would agree to co-operate for tho
teaching of religion, nnd would give
tho majority power to fix tho creed and
the forms" of worship, there would
come a very emphatic "No" front a
largo part of them. If, in pursuanco
of a proposal to rev ive sumptuary laws,
tho inquiry was made whether they
would bind themselves to abide by tho
will of a majoiity as regards tho fash
ion and quality of their clothes, nearly
all of them would refuse. In like man
ner, if (to take an actual question of
the day) people were polled to ascer
tain whether, in respect to tho bever
ages they drank, they would accept
the decision of tho greater number,
half, and probably moro than half
would very decidedly decline. Simi
larly with respect to many other ac
tions which most men nowadays con
sider as matters of purely private" con
cern. Whatever desire there might bo
to co-operate in carrying on, or regu
lating such actions, would bo far from
a unanimous desire. Manifestly, thun,
had social co-operation to bo com
menced by ourselves, nnd had its pur
poses to bo specified beforo consent to
co-oncrato could bo obtained, thero
would be largo parts of human conduct
in respect to which co-operation would
bo declined; and in respect of which,
consequently, no authority of tho ma
jority over the minority could bo right
fully exercised. Herbert Hpoiccr in
