The political demonstration in this
city brought large numbers of visitors to
Cairo on Thursday, and all of our mer
chants enjoyed a splendid trade. Many
country merchants took advantage of tbe
occasion to run in and see the busy metrop
olis whose recent strides of progress are
exciting the aliniration of all who have be
come aware of them.
The Republicans of this city seem to
be disturb i soraewhit at the immense
Democratic jubilee held in tho city on
Thursday. They are trying to tell how
small a crowd there was in the procession,
and how littlo enthusiasm was manifested.
It is up-hill work. The fact remains that
for magnitude and enthusiasm the political
gathering on Thursday, the 10th, has never
been approached in Southern Illinois.
The Louisville Times is talking truth
when it says: "The Democrat who falters
now is a Sunday soldier: a dress Darada
warrior. This is no time for being afraid.
It is the time when brave men are brsvest.
The battle is before us; not behind us.
The columns of the Democracy fire headed
towards the front, not the rear. Only cra
vens seek the wagon camps in the midst
of an engagement. Ohio is but ono State.
The great union of states has yet to vote."
The largest and most enthusiastic
Democratic meeting in this portion of the
state was held in Cairo on Thursday last.

there were 2,000 torches in line. Oen.

As "original companies" go a long way
with tho Cairo public, in connection with
the presentation of any popular piece, it
may be mentioned that the company which
play "Rmiany Rye" at the opera house
Monday and Tuesday evenings are the orig
inal troupe by which the splendid sensation
al mclo-drama was presented the first year
of its rendition throughout the east.
This statement may be relied on, and
when it is generally known that the drama
is the production of the author of "The
Lights O'London" and mounted with the
same splendid sceuic effect as was that
great success here last winter, it is
enough to insure it a success.
The following from the Springfield Jour
nal of September 23 will be of interest :
"Iu spite of the counter attraction of two
great political speakers list night, a fine
audience assembled at the Grand opera
house to witness the opening performance
of 'Romany Rye.' It is a great play and
goes with a whirl, tbe waits between acts
not exceeding three or four minutes, while
humorous and pathetic scenes press close
upon one another. Tho scenery used is tbe
improved levolving kind, snd as some
somberview dissolves into a beautiful pic
ture like tho gypsy camp on the bank of
the Thames, or London by Sunrise, the ef
fect is grand. The plot rushes the charac
ters from one tbrilliug situation to another
making the action as vividly natural as tbe
scenery. The storm scene at the close of
the play is one of startling realism. The
characters, representing every phaso of life,
are well balanced throughout."
Fontaine E. Albright.
That is his natre. As the prospects of
Mr. Albright's election duily grow brighter,
tho importance of having his name spelled
correctly becomes more apparent. As we
observe that his name is incorrectly spelled
in some of our exchanges, we take this oc
casion to call attention to tho correct spell
ing. We say tho prospects of Mr. Albright's
election grow daily brighter. We can no
more anal) zo his popularity than Carter
Garrison's. But if you will talk with tho
people, you will find ho is popular. Tbe
farmers are for him, and tho miners ore for
him. The young men, especially, are for
him. They look on him as the representa
tive of tho "Young America" ol the district.
