In an article of two columns and a
half in length, tho Paducah Ktntitchitm
gives a few reasons why the democracy
Fhould stand firm. When tho editor has
a year or two to spare, wc hope he will
enter into details on this all important
G'ov. Palmer's message is u'0; hul
just n littlo unsatisfactory. It convicts
tho governor, wo think, of becoming
dreadfully indignant nboiK the "mill-
tnry occupation of Chicago " nftcr tho
occupation bad fcrmlnatcd. The gov
ernor i onml in doctrine, but he is tin-
sound in action He 'nlks liKo tno no-
blc.t If""""1 of n" 1110 !inlu'rt rifci1,,S
men, a'"1 wl'cn he speaks on tho subject
commands our applause; but he nets
like an advocate of centralization and
militnry government. While Gen. Sher
idan hclil absolute control of Chicago,
and the bayonets of his soldiers were to
be seen on every street, at
which time protest from Pal
mer would have called atten
tion to an existing danger, the governor
was muto and actually thanked the gen
eral for his promptness in stepping for
ward to protect life ami property ; but,
after all danger had passed, the gov
ernor became loud in his proclamation
of devotion to the doctrine of state
rights and denounced the military
usurpations ho had not tho courage to
attack while they wcro being perpe
trated. So, the governor holds up the
hands of tho republican party, while,
step by step, it leads the country
towards centralization and the destruc
tion of all rights of tho states, and ap-
lauds Grant while that soldier'-; bayo
nets arc being used to murder not only
tho rights of the states, but tho liber
ties of the citizens. While doing this,
he is singing the song of the state's
rights men and whispering to them
that he is with and of them. Ho docs not
square his practices with his precepts.
Politically, he has been neither fish,
flesh nor fowl ; but that he will hcrcaf-
tcr be in practice what he is in precepts
wc have no doubt: He must, if he
hopes to succeed in the future, lean up
on the democracy for support. He can
hope for nothing more from the repub
licans. He has, at last, spoken too
boldly in the advocacy of constitutional
principles, and his old political friends
have repudiated him. They denounce
him as if he were a rascal ; and, it lie
has any respect for himself, he cannot
any longer fellowship with tuein.

WHY IT IS CALLED FGYI'T.
Those two great men, George Fran
cis Train and Disraeli, appear to have
been uiUtukcn in their prognostications
concerning Queen Victoria. She is rap
idly rcgainiug health and strength and
all thoughts of a regency are out of or
der at present!
In a multitude of counsellors there i
salety. Mormon Juubands must fee
themselves particularly safe, then, since
the Mormon women, in their petition
to Mrs. Grant, say that in their estima
tion every wife should fill the position
of counsellor tu her husband.

than the active ones, God help the firm
TmtKK persons have determined to
be president next term Grant
Victoria Woodhull and George
Francis Train. The perplexity of
straight out radicals will bo dreadful
when they are compelled to choose be
tweeu three such candidates. If wc be
longed to that delectable party we
would say " may tho best man win " and
would stay away from the polls.
Secretary Delano appears to think
that civil service reform means taking
care of tho interests of the washer
women and boarding-house keepers of
Washington city. Tho better way to
ta would be to see that radical officials,
ureat and small, are honest in relation
to their dealings with tho government.
A strictly honcu oflieo-liolder will need
no leins drawn on him to compel fair
dealings in private life.
SEfRETARY Delano has undertaken

Coy The national democratic executive
committee, appointed by the lust national
convention, will meet in Washington in
Januarv. earlier than uu:i, to decide on
tho time mid place, of holding thu next
convention. It y that time tho policy of
tho conservative republican and the
extent of the co-operation of tho dem
ocratic party will bo fully dcvcloppJ, and
the committee can decide whether it is the

said to be tho first step in civil service
refjrm, aud a big stride it is. The
hmnbuggcry of it is apparent, but it is
worthy of the radical party. For years
the public treasuries of tho country have
been open to the itching palms of radical

As theronrp djublle-sinniiy of our rond
or who arc not ndvlscd as to why South
ern Illlnol' Is called Ugypt, wo take ploas
uro In trnsferrlng to our columns nn ex
tract from nn article upon the subject
from the pen of Judge A. D. Dull', which
wo clip irom tho columns of tho Dally
tiatttte of Sunday, nnd wo have no hesi
tancy in tnylng that wo regard Ills ver
sion of the matter in authentic history:
Doubtless there nrc yet many of tho
early scrtlcrs of this State who remember
the remarkable winter of 18'J0-3I, fa
miliarly known to them as tho winter of
the "deep snow," (this was recently al
luded to in the Ontcllf,) when the snow
fell throughout thu northern bor
der counties of tho state to tho depth of
threo feet. The winter being the longest
nod severest over known in Illinoi;, thus
causing an unusual licavv draft upon the
supply of corn produced by tho limners
upon the central frontier counties, most
of whom were new comers of only ono,
two oi1 threo years residence In tho stato ;
but this severe, and long winter was fol
lowed by n remarkably Tate nnd nnd back
ward spring, sovcro frost being frequent
until tho middle of May, so that thero
was littlo or no corn planted in the stato
in thoycar of l&ll, noith of JoM'erson coun
ty, until In.luno; this Into spring was also
followed by u heavy and killing fret on
the night of tho 10th of Soptembcr, 1831,
which did considerable damage to tho
late crops throughout the state, but to com
pletely ruined all the corn nrth of tho
38th latitude that it was
wholly worthless except for winter
ing cattle. Hence, tho year 1832 was tho
great "corn famine'1 in the early history
o" Illinois; nil the prairie counties in
fact the en tiro state north of the 38th lat
itude, had not produced sound corn enough
tho year beforo to plant their farms in
IS'Ji therefore all their corn, for every
purpose, had to bo brought from some
other region. Corn was shipped up tho
.Mississippi nnd Illinois rivers, nnd sup
plied to tlie adjoining counties at ?J per
bushel, where it hail sold In 1831 at ten
cents per bushel. Tho counties in the ex
trcmo southern part of tho State, com
mencing with Jcll'erson, nnd tho counties
cast nnd west of it on tho samo latitude,
and including all tho counties lying south
of them, owing to the peculiar frinblo nnd
sandy character oi tho soil, their southern
latitude and the absence of large prairies
wcro comparatively free irom tlie ttlect of
tho late spring and early frosts of 1831,
their corn crops being unusually good.
So that while corn in the central northern
frontier counties, which were then Shelby,
JIncon, Montgomery, etc., could only be
had in limited quantities nt $3 and ?1 por
bushel, it could be bought in abundance in
tho lower counties nt twenty-llvo cents
per bushel. The result was that from tho
lot 11 oi April iu mo iasi oi ounc, icj;,
thero wero not less than n thousand wagon
loads of corn taken from the counties of
Jcll'erson, Hamilton, Franklin (then in
cluding "Williamson), Gallatin (then in
cluding Salino), Johnson and ether south
ern counties, into tno counties oi uunion.
Fayette, .Montgomery, .Macon, Shelby and
other counties in thnt region. This corn
was bought up by such fanners of those
counties ns had teams sutlleicnt to haul it,
and transported iu wagons: theso corn
buyers generally traveled in eompanie- oi
from three to six or o'gnt wagons logotner,
nnd as they bought out thu cum "in onu
county so a to cause the prico to advance
to -IU or ill) cents per uuuei, tno next ear
avail or company would travel Hill fur
ther south, to whero thu corn was still
cheap, until many of them penetrated
jouuston una oiuor counties men ooruer
ing on tho Ohio river.
Thuio good peoplo after traveling such
a dKtanco llndmg corn o plentiful and to

dnto corn bread was the stall' of life iu Il

term, and tho caii'e of Southern Illinois
being called J'mipl. I know whereof I
speak. In tho spring of 18"l! 1 resided
upon n public road pasing through one
of thu counties 1 have mentioned, I saw
more than a hundred wagons p.iss cither
going for or returning with corn for the
upper counties, and I know for myself
that those people, after tho first fuw weeks,
seldom mentioned their business down
hero without making some allusion to tlie
fiiblo narrative of tlie people of olden
time.- going to Kgypt for corn. Hut no
living man ever heard tlie term Kgypt
