Louisville butchers make inferior

The Sun is cruel when it says that
Mister 'Squire - Judge-Dr.-Postmastcr
Mcrfz, will, if olected, have an eye

become anybody to thus make a joke
out of a misfortune.
Chicago gave Grant a house, of the
value of $50,000, and that liberal soul,
when Chicago had been leveled with
the plain by fire, munificently contrib
uted $1,000! If the general goesjon
in this reckless manner, scattering his
money to tho wiuds, ho will beggar

The Kvansville Courier, which has
for a long time been an enthusiastic
advocatJ of the nomination of Mr,
Hendricks lor the presidency has flop
ped about until it has got on the

" Things is workin'."
A.v.v.t Dickinson will fulfil br.r
lecture engagements in the northern
part of this state next month. The
gentle Anna, it is said, has rolled up
$00,000, a very comfortable pum to be
gathered up so easily. At fifty cents
a head, this is the amount paid by
eighteen thousand curious people who
wanted to " see what she looked like."
As this sharp female is not yet on the
shady side of thirty, and can, with in
genious aids, preserve her good looks
for ten or fifteen years longer, there
will be no hinderance to her retiring
with a couple of hundred thousand dol
lars. We now have mautiai, law in
Chicago, Texas and .South Carolina,
Senator Urowulow says he believes
martial law ought to be proclaimed and
federal troops Fent to every district in
Tennessee, and that he would not hesi
tate to support such a proposition in
wiu senate ol the United States. This
is the fruit of radicalism. Since the
accession of Gen. Grant, tho neoi.lo
have been assured by bis followers
that Ins numerous violations of cstab
lii-hed law "are of no eoiiKciiuence.'

the 8.'1,000,000 voted to Chicago by the
state was not a gift but tho payment of
a debt. This is putting a fine point on
tne matter, hvcrybody who knows
anything about the canal enterprise
knows it was a grand steal by Chicago,
a city that has been in tho habit of
stcaliug every thing that it could get its
hands ou. The work on the canal was

say, the partisans of Mr. Miller resort
to this kind of electioneering to induce
ic people of Cairo to vote for him,
they know they aro acting the part of
cry unfair fellows. Mr. Miller would
act under oath, as Mr. Martin has
acted, and would be compelled to assess
all the property of the county fairly, un-
css ho would perjure himself, and every
person who knows Mr. Miller knows
lini to be a truthful and honorable
man. JJut the misery is, mr. miner
would have very little to do with the
office. His business could not bo
neglected, and his duties as treasurer
and assessor would ueccssarily be per
formed by a deputy, somebody sug
gested by tho radical trio Iincgar,
Muuu and Pope who rule mot of the
white radicals of Cairo, including Mil
ler, with sway as absolute as that they
maintain over the negroes. This dep
uty, whoever ho might bo, would prob
ably hell out the assessment iu his own
interest and that of the managing radi
cals, but that the city at large would
get any benefit from it wc very much
doubt we don't believe.
Gauuett Davis, of Kentucky, a

the world, has been enlight
ening the country at Louisville.
The speech Garrett does all his en-
lichtoninir work bv snccche fill 'on
columns of the Courier-Journal and is
set in small type. To read it carefully,
excluding the time consumed by the
naps that would necessarily interrupt
the perusal, a rapid reader would bo
compelled to waste five hours at least.
It is immense, and may bo accepted
literally as an exhaustive statement of
the position of bourbouic democracy ;
aud it is as able as exhaustive. It places
before the public, in the most forciblo
manner, all the arguments of our polit
ical incorrigiblcs. Beginning with a
dissertation on the object of govern
ment, tho wordy orator drops upon tho
subject of the growth of tho American
system, and then glides gently into a
number of remarks on "the states,"
" tho people," " despotisms," " Roman
' liberty," " state rights," " the powers
' of government," " the history of tho
'rebellion," "illegality of the amend
' incuts," and a thousand other subjects.

THE CAIRO DAILY BULLETIN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1871.
cessivo oligarchies, nnd will havo no
Government, no country!
After this grand roll, Mr. Davis
slates a few axiomatic truths, denounces
tho supremo court as a failuro, fires a
perfect broadside at Grant, and con
cludes, standing in tho glare of tho
brilliant light cf his own astonishing
rhetoric, by declaring that tho demo
cratic party cannot succeed by nominat
ing a man who endorses the doctrines
he advocates, and should, therefore,
nominate a man whose paramount quali
fication should bo strength enough to
beat Grant. "There is such a man,"
cries the eloquent long talker, ''he
' stands gloriously revealed to the pco-
1 pic of this nation in a long public life.
' and in one of tho ablest, broadest, most
' patriotic, and purest administrations of
the government .that hove ever
' blessed our country, in tho person of
' Millard Fillmore. Let the demo
1 cratie party maintain proudly and
1 firmly its grand aud tnne-honorod or-
' gauization, and repeat distinctly its
'immortal principles to the country and
' the world; butletit take Millard Fill-
' mure upon the trust and confidence of
' his past life, and present him to the
' whole people of the United States for
1 tho presidency, without note or com-
' mont as to him. Let it call Catullus
' from his retirement to save Rome I"
SQf Perry Joslln, one of thooldust nnd
perlmps tbu most eccentric of the newt
paper men of Michigan, after sevcrnt
years of retirement Is again editor of tho
Saginaw Enterprise, the leading journal
of Northern Michigan, which holms en
larged to a thirty-six column ehect. Tho
Enterprise was started in backwoods times,
and the first of its dally editions wero
worked otf on a hand-press by Mr. Joslln
himself, who has the reputation of being
the most accomplished practical printer
in Michigan. Tho typo-sotting for the
Enterprise Is dono with as much caro as is
oxecrcised in book-work, thcro being as
much heed tnken to secure even spacing
between words as Is takon to secure cor
rect orthography. A peculiarity of the
Enterprise is that it publishos no liquor
advertisements. Though a member of no
tcmperinco society, Mr. Joslln has never
been known to permit the printing of a
liquor advertisement In his paper, and
any word or sentence which alludes Iu any
way to intoxicating drinks Is carefully
eliminated from all manuscripts or selec
tions intended for tho Enterprise. Im
mense quantities of whisky aro drunk and
sold in tho two Saginaw, but this peculiar
daily nowspaper flourishes without it, and
makes out to bo as interesting as tho oth
er Michigan papers.
tSyThe power is steadily passing into
the hands of tho Western States. It is
estimated that by 1880 tho eleven western
states will contain two-fifths of the entire
population of tho Union. By that time
th population of the Union will bo somo
40,000,000; and tho following estimate has
been mado of tho cloven western states :
JQT Tho following passage occurs in the
St. Louis Democrat's report of the Medli
cott poisoning case: "A lawyer (not in
in the caso) who heard tho medical testi
mony, remarked that another such trial
would ruin the medical fraternity of Kan
sds. It Is a subject of general comment
that tho doctors contradicted each other
upon nearly every point on which thoy
wero questioned. They even differed in
regard to tho effect of that well-known
drug quinine, which Is taken by everybody
in Kansas. Ono learned doctor hesitated
a Jong time bofore ho would say that con
gestion of tho lungs was a common cause
of death. When they took hold of those
poisonous drugs morphine and atropine,
every ono had a different idea about them."
tr A now Bonaparllat organ of Paris

press Eugenie to tho Czar of Kufiia, dat
