THE DOLLAR WEEKLY JIULLET1N.
John II. Oberly Co. have reduced the sub
,cription price "t the Weekly Cairo llulletln to
One MUrper rmum. making U the cheapest pa
perrmbllshed InBouthern Illinois.
Tncononr. TiltoS has gone terribly
wroDg on one subject, but ho bIiows
himself "sound.on the goose" on another
when he declares that "every specula-
tor and corruptionist in the public scr-
' vice is Gen. Grant's agent ; every dec-
1 tion is influenced by the money and
' manipulation of federal office-holders
' for that very purpose"
The following sentiment, but lately
expressed by a prominent democrat of
New-York city, is one that must cause
the heart of every true democrat to
leap responsive to it : ''The domoo
' racy of the nation is too great a power
1 to surrender its principles in a scram
' ble for office. Its past history is too
' brilliant to forego its policy for a di-
' vision of Bpoils, and it still lives and
' will live for a brilliant future that
' must come sometime."
It is the fasVion, just now, for news
papers of tho radical persuasion to in
sist that the democratic party is dead
and there arc not wanting democratic
papers to feebly re-iterate tho assertion.
Hut tho announcement is premature.
The party lives, and is possessed of
large stock of strength, vitality nnd
power. It is not about to give up tho
ghost. On tho contrary., it is putting
on its armor for u contest with radical
ism which is only another name fo
corruption and if every individual
democrat docs his dtttv. tho result will
show that, as Gov. Hoffman recently
declared, " the democratic party is in
1 deed a power in the land."
The New-York Herald says tho ouly
danger in the way of Grant's re-elec
tion is in the mismanagement of the
financial business of the government,
and closes an article reviewing the dis
arranged condition of the motioy mat
ters of the country by at-king whether
Boutwell has the wisdom and the cour
age to surmount threatened dangers,
and, if he has, whether he will do no
aud re-elect his chief. Thu
secretary of the treasury is a .ntrotig
Grant man, but havim; been mentioned
as a probable candidate for the presi
dential chair himself, the vision may
do much toward lessening his fervent
desire to eeo his present "chief" re
elected. On the other hand, Grant,
who tolerates "no rival near his
'throne," will not hesitate to removo
his ambitious satelite at the first danger
looming up from that quarter. His
motto is : " There shall be no president
1 but Grant, aud he is his own prophet."
1HE JNew-lork Stuiuhtrd, one of
the most subservient of the time-servers
of the administration, and heuce
worsuipper ol Don Hamilton Fish,

Notwithstanding the extreme enro
taken by JVc-iilcnt (irnnt to not let
any ono whatever got a jircinnttirc
rl.mco at his forthcomitig ino'sngo to
'congress, it has been shadowed forth in
some mysterious way nnd its leading
features arc already touched upon in
print. From these, it appears that the
president, with the stubbornness pecu
liar to him, will insist on adhering to
his ' peace policy " toward the mur
derous Indians ot Arizona and the tac
tions constiguous to it. Every evidence
goes to show that thin eource, while it
has so far been jiowerlcsx to ttimo the
savages, is one of extreme cruelty to
the whito dwellers of the localities
named. But, in spite of the remon
strances of Gov. Snfford, who has writ
ten a letter reviewing the ghastly ab
surdities of the so-called "pence poli
1 cy " and asking that Gen. Crook re
ceive tho support of the government in
his efforts to protect tj'c helpless whites
in the face of the petition presented
to tho war department from tho whole
people of the infested portions of Ari
zona and California embodying tho
same complaints nnd request Grant,
calmly disregarding both, sticks to his
own preconceived notions with an ob
stinacy all his own. These portions of
our territory may bo depopulated, but
Mr. Grant will pursue the even tenor of
hiswaj. He is the most perfect specimen
of radicalism now to bo found in tho
United States, notwithstanding the fact
that Montgomery Blair asserts that, if
anything at heart, ho is a democrat.
Heaven save the mark !

fl- A correspondent of tho Phila

Fechtor gossip: "Davenport wroto to

for $500 in gold a night. This Davenport
vory sons ibly declined to give, and, for-
tunutely for him as It has turnod out, the
matter went no farther. Tho genial
Murphy, of tho Arch street Thcatro, sud
denly bethought him thnt it wouldn't do
that establishment much harm If thoy
mado another attempt at tho legitimate.
So ho throw out a lino fer rechter.
"Five hundred dolUrs a night in gold,"
answered Fcchtur. "Sow, look here
Fechter," inld thu polite Murphy, "you
know vou'll draw liko blazes, and so do I.
What do you su to this arrangement?
I 11 giro you every cent that comes into

to hU own sorrow. Thcro has been too
much blonde and I.ottn bulsiness at tho

$000 any night during his engagement."

the countryman, angrily. "Why, you
