Well, now, let n admit lliat lie did
cay e that he averted in hiaMctrono
lii fjK-i.oli hirt belief that he would not
receive the vote "l niiy eoloretl men,
and h:nl the conri'O to nay that the fact
did not nlnnn him j that he would ob.
tain more voti'si from white men than
the colored and white Judical com-
hined could jmiII ; and in ntiite of the ef
fort "nf white, Jilmt and tan colored
and "J indefinite rolon-d Republican
would makoJiLi culling and election
cure. Admitting, we nay, that Col.
Creh.i did use language like tULi, what
do yon, Hepublii'au, iitoisono to do about
it? Don't you know that Col. Creb i
of age, know what he t talking about,
and that he generally My what he
plea.e. without eonulting you kind of
Hut let talk awhile together on
thii nigger question.
Vou know that you are hyjioeritoi
and that all your people are; that you
don't like tne ncgroc any more intense
ly than the Democrat do and that you
believe the great majority tfi them are
not fit, not intelligent enough, to cant
ballot in n free or any other kind of a
country. Vou know that we know that
you atond by negro riuhtc negro equal
itynegro exlialtation only becnum
Harubo i an in.-truinont you can iio to
advaueu your own iterent. After awhile
Sambo will find you out J will get to
understand you; and then look out for
Niuall. In that hour you will eurcly
"go back" on your alle )inUjr, and
he what will hu do? It i- hard to
tell The negro of to-day i the negro
of Herodotus and we can only -ay, he
null net like a sensible human leing,
kick out of your party trace mid vote
the Democratic ticket. When he wMies
tn, Col, Crvbs will not, no Democrat
will, Maud at tho wlU with u club to
hit him on tho head. Vou will Iw u
iug a ncgro-aiv-nultiiig club in that day
.Such a day may come. It will, if
tho negroOH over become enlightened ;
learu to understand the character of our
government; become iuietliing else
than creature of impulse, prejudice and
Miper.tititwi. And there is no rvaon
why they should not. Anmng them
are r-omu educated men, mid we cannot
understand' why tho mass of colored
coplo hhould not become reasonably
intelligent, indejtendent and respectable.
When they do, if they do, they will not
be long in finding out the puliuhlc truth
that the Democratio party i the poor
man'a party tho party of every man
who eariii his bread in tho sweat of hi
Uiif now, what is the use of talking?
The negroei arc too ignorant to bo rca
boned with, and we haven't tho money
or the disposition to buy them. Kven
if ,wd had,, it would bo unlawful and
tboreforc undeiuocratie, ,You own
them bag and baggage ; will drag them
to the poll and make them vote any
wuy you please. We know this, and
will not try to obtain their vote. Let
theni 'go' their way, become the tools of
designing men; n dangerous element in
society. The better claw of citixens
will not go with them ; will coiuo over
to the Democracy to check tho on-rushing
terrcnt of ignorance and revolution)
and will make good Co), Crabs' words
by electing him in wpito of all tho ef
forts of that inany-culored, double
fucd, revolutionary combination known
as the Radical party.
WE CANNOT SVPI'OHV MR.
When Mr. Wilcox was nominated for
Representative of this county in the
Legislature, it was believed that s
would decline and that Mr. Pope would
be put into the vacancy. This exjKjcta
tion has been dimippointed, and the
gentleman ha determined to go before
, In Mr. Wilcox wc recognize a good
citizen and n courteous gentleman.
We know nothing in disparagement of
hU peroual character, aud believe him
to be a moral aud upright man. He
has been a resident of the county
several years, and ha uitc a large
circle of acquaintances. As a hotel
keeper he i popular; and, from per
soual knowledge of the fact, wo can yny
that he spreads a good table and keep
comfortable aud clean bed. If he
were a candidate for hntcl-keeer, wc
would vote for him even if we had to
bolt our party to do so. But, unfortu
nately for un, he i a candidate for
another position a position that re
quires other qualities than those of a
good hotel-keeper, and qualifications
which hu doe not pofcss. If elected,
ho will, no doubt, vote "aye" or "no"
Umoi the quc.-tion submitted to the
House, hut will carry with him little
weight, und will not be Mich a represen
tative a the lieople of Alexander need
atthix time. Having never dabbled in the
artisan jiool, ho i not conversant with
the political history of the Republic,
know little about the want of tho
count', mid ha never, we venture to say,
een out in either of the country precinct.
Itc-idc thi, Mr. Wilcox is, we are in
formed, a Republican who believe that
negro children ought to lc admitted into
the free schools, and in the Legislature,
f he should beelccted, will vote to open
to them the door of our educational
ustitutioii'. Tin fact induced hi
friend, Mr. Fisher, president of the col
ored Republican Club, one of the prom
inent delegate in the nominating con
dition, aud a gentleman who is a fine
cook and can put upon a pair of boots
a splendid jMilbdi, to throw the black
influence in Mr. Wilcox's favor, and
thus K-curc to that gentleman a place
on the Radical ticket.
We regret that these and other con-
ideratioiis which, we shall hereafter
mention, impel m to desiro the defeat
of Mr. Wilcox, for whom we entertain
a warm side, who many good qualities
we admire, and wlm.-o reputation
mine host ha made him mi institution
if Cair.. but when duty culls we must,
of course obey. c, therefore, banish
from our mind all recollection of friend

we must, we say, in oK'thcncc to a
sense of duty, banish from our mind
II recollection of these daintie, with
which mine hot Jewel t spread hi

our friend will not call u an Migrate.
THE M.ATFORM AXD TICKET.
We call the attention of our reader
to tho report of the proceedings of tho
Democratic State Convention published
in another column ; and we ask that
esjiecial attention be given to the plat
form and ticket.
In the platform we find none of the
platitudes in which it is the pleasure of
old fogy Democrat to indulge no pro
clamation of any dead issuo no mani
festation of n disposition to waste time
in attempting to undo event or prove
tho impossibility of doing what ha al
ready been done. Kaeh of it planks
is the assertion of u vital political issue,
made in lauguago at once comprehen
sive and elegant. Taken as a whole,
the platform is wide enough for occu
pancy by all thorns patriot of llliuois
who aro not blinded Joy prejudice and
earnestly dosiro the welfare of tho
The ticket will give great satisfaction
to the Democracy, and bo especially
iwpular iu Egypt. It is composed of
new material, and will he supported
with cuthusiasm. (Jen. Auderson is a
young man of ability, experionco and
indomitable perseverance. Againit his
patriotism no man can truthfully say a
word, for it was tried in tho ordeal of
battle and caiuo out as bright as gold.
His integrity is above suspicion. Amoug
tho people who know him best his popu
larity is unbounded. He is an orator
of moro than ordinary ability, and in
tho pending canvas will, wo have no
doubt, prove to the people that he is
more than a match for Gen. Logan, who
will, in all probability, decline to meet
hi in on the stump. Gen. Anderson is
not a man who can be borne down ts
Col. Dickey was. He is firm as well as
brave, strikes hard blows, and receives
no blow which hu doc not return. He
is the right man in the right place.
Mr. Ridgcly, candidate for State
Treasurer, is a gentleman of great
financial ability, who stands high in the
estimation of his neighbors, and is re
sticctcd by all that portion of tho busi
nes community who admire unswerving
honesty and personal integrity. His
word is as good as his bond.
The other-candidates upon the ticket
we do not know, but believe they arc
gentlemen entitled to the confidence of
the public. The convention aimed to
obtain such candidate, aud that they
sncceded wc have not the least doubt.
With such a platform and ticket,
Democrats, why should wo not succcod ?
There i no wisdom in Hiyiug we can
not win. Wc can. Tho people arc
awakening to n realization of tho neces
sity for reformation in State and Na
tional politics, and will yet wheel into
the patriotic column of the Democracy.
