To' iht Wlar of Tht Cairo litdtetin .'
DEArfBiii! Sinco tho flnnl decision of
tho commlttoo has boon randorcd, justice
demands from mo n publlo stntemcnt of
the r.adicnl facts connected with tho recent
examination bold nt Shnwncctown. Somo
tlirco weeks ago thoro nppcarod in tho
Cairo Star n notlco, as on extract from tho
Gallatin Oatttfe, This notice, supposed
to hnvo como from Col. Crebs, called for an
examination to bo held nt Shawncetown
on tho 2d of August. Therein was stated
that, as tho object of tho examination would
bo to detcrmino upon somo young man
whoso "merit and character " would ren
der him a fit representative of this dis
trict at tho United Slates military acado
my at West Point, It would bo opon to all
tho young men of tlio Thirteenth congres
Now, Mr. Kdltor, tho principal state
ment contained in this notlco, nnd tho
vory ono Hint now recoils upon Itfslf, Is
Hint "tho conmiltteo would bo guided in
thoir decision by tho strictest impartiali
ty," nnd Unit "physical development" nnd
'intolloctual advancement" combined with
n good mornl chnrnctcr, would alono suc
ceed In obtaining this "nppolntmcnt."
It Is your duty then, Mr. Editor, to sco,
Judging from tho facts contained in tho eo
quo), if this committco ndhorod to tho
nbbvo declaration. Upon this supposition
I wont to Shnwneotown, nnd hav
ing ' nrrived tho morning prc
vious to tho examination I
found that considerable Influcnco
was being brought to bear upon somo mom
borsof tho committee, nnd Hint very doop
interest wns manifested by tho friends of
tho Tcspoctlvo applicants. I laughed nt
tholr simplicity, supposing that justico
and merit would absorb all pcrsonnl con
siderations. That evening I underwent
tho physical process of sounding, contract
ing, expanding, .Vc. Tho doctor pro
nounced mo "physically perfect." Tho
following morning I, In common with
seven other applicants, prcsontod myself
boforo tho board of examiners for tho In
Tho "oxaminc" wns a written one. I
wroto without intermission from 9 a.m.
until 2 p.m., at which tlmo I handed in
my manuscripts. Now, judging lrom tho
concessions made by tho committco sinco
my depnrturo from Shawncetown, I
passed as good, if not n better examina
tion, than Snnford II. Cochrane, in whoso
favor thoy havo already rendored their
decision. In n conversation with Mr.
Cochrane ho acknowledged my " Intel"
lectual superiurity," but ho contended that
I was "physically inferior" to bim. Hear
witness to this you who woro present.
Now, If Mr. Cochrnno's roughness of
physiquo will counteract "intellectual
superiority" and 'physical perfection,
I will yield in tills matter und congrntu
luto Mr. Cochrnno on his superb qualifi
cation. Hut if not I cull for nn impartial
decision. I ro'scsscd tho qualifications
set forth in tho " notice." What then
wns necessary V
1 now demnnd n public examination of
my manuscripts. If you deny mo this
you will put mo (o tho necessity of chnb
longing S. II. Cochrano to n public exam
ination in any of thoso branches that con
stitute a pluin or scientific "course." This
I will do unless you ncknowlcdgo in pub
lic what you havo dono in private.
Lot mo hero state that I cntortain no
ill feeling whatevor against my opponent.
Charity suggosts tho contrary.
If I won tho appointment justly mid ho
received it at tho hands ol a partial com
mittco, no blamo should bo attachod to
him for accepting' iC Iio has ihdefatlga
bly labored during tho past two years in
order to obtain this, andporhaps I nm not
entitled to it sinco 1 didn't Btudy for
it. II on co, tho decision of tho committco,
notwithstanding tho' tenor of tho notlco,
so frequently referred to in this communl
cation. Unless, tho committee, como for
ward und enlighten the public upon thi
" scheme," tho citizens of Cairo and South
cm Illinois will hnvo a "strango idea" of
justico in Shawncetown. I demand
statement. If you deny mo this, your own
silenco will bo your condemnation.
Sincorely thanking you, Mr. Editor, for
your very kind indulgonco, I remain,
