Mr. Kditoii: In looking over The
Hulletin of Saturday last, 1 saw a piece

as if something tcrriblo had happened',
but, as the saying is, "thero is always two
sides to a story."
published has everything characterizing
It except Christianity. The spirit that
causod Its publication manifested itself
throughout the wholo story. Admlting
oven that I was wrong, littlo did they
think of tho Apostle's injunction,
"hide your iirother's FAULTis-.'
Thus they should havo hid the faults, if
thero was any, nnd not publish tho samo
to tho world. Tho world can soo enough,
sometimes, among christians, to keep many
from doing right, when, otherwise, thoy
would love nnd oboy tho Saviour. In tho
no ono in tho family wants any to know
of them but thomsclvcs. So it should bo

Now, this is
A TRUE STATEMENT OF THE STORY.

six weeks, with muoh good, as tho results
show, soma 105 being naded. Provious to
this, Mr. S. Hay sent to Philadelphia for
mo to como to Cairo and labor for tho
church hero, but ns I started previous to
lis arrival, I received it not. So tho pub
lic may sco for thorn selves
ALL WAS RIGHT THEN,
and kept so until I was half through my
mocting, which I commenced on tho 2Cth
of 31 arch last. Tho church was complete

much so that it took a wholo wcok to get
WHAT THE CHRISTIANS WERE D0IN0.
Many wcro playing cards, whllo some
had been dancing and going to places of
amusement, which every ono knows is
wrong. A Christian should not "conform
to tho world.'' This was

and yet nil ul'owed to go on, nnd when I

County Treasurer. Tho timo is near

tho pcoplo of tho county to select a treas
uror nnd assessor, and, .even at this early
day, certain gonllomon, who never loso
an opportunity to get into any vacant pub
lic place, aro already easting their eyes nt
tho position, and commencing to "pull
tho wires" for tho purpose of obtaining
it. How tho two parties will net in re
ference to the office, wo havo no means of
ascertaining, but wo aro of tho opinion
that tho late railroad complications, nnd
other considerations of grcnt weight, will
rendern political contest for tho position
both unwiso and impracticable. It would,
in our opinion, bo bettor, undor tho cir
cumstances, to revivo tho Citizens' Move
ment of last spring, and carry it into tho
county canvass, but in this wo may bo
mistaken, and only throw out tho sugges
tion to awaken discussion. A year ago
last spring certain democrats, in tho
interest of ox-Mayor "Wilson, who hns al
ways, for certain reasons, been opposed to
regular nominations, broke down tho pre
cedent of party contests for city officers.
Lust spring, in tho city olection, this pre

who suddenly oven as nulcklv ns Saul

loud-mouthed advocates of regular demo

Shorlff Irvin was not In tho city; that ho
(Dr. Victor) was not disarmed on tho
journey to Hloornfleld by Sheriff Irvin, or
compelled by that goutloman to rldo with
him, but that ho offered his pistol to Irvin
who refused to accept it ut thu timo, nnd
that he rodo with Irvin becnuso that gen
tleman kindly pormittod him to do so ; that
Dave, his son, was compelled to do what ho
did, or act Iiko a coward, and ho (tho Doc
tor) would sooner sco him stretch hemp
than be pointed at as a coward; that ho (tho
Doctor) bcllovcsTJavo will get jrstico at
Bloomflold whero he Is well known and
whero no unjust prejudice ngalnit him ox

to givo tho doctor the most pain, was that
portion in which, ho says, tho impression
was convcyod that ho nnd his boys wero
ferocious men not nmenablu to the laws
and setting every person at defiance.
Tho doctor is mistaken. Tbo article docs
not say this cither directly or by infer
ence. It Is simply a statwnont of what
Sheriff Irvin and his deputy Mono say are
facts. Tho information for tho articlo was
derived from tlidrri ; but, of courso, ho
knows his and his boys, respect for the law
