The call for a Liberal Republican
county convention Is published in another
column. As upon tbo completeness of
thoso Initial steps the harmony and
strength of futuro movements very largoly
depend, it is earnestly hoped that no
ordinary consideration will deter tho
Llboral Hopubllcani of the county
from attending tho convention. Tho

quostiont of moment will bot canvassed
and acted upon it is important that tho

hlmoro. Being short of funds, on his ar-
rivul ut Elmore, ho concluded to replenish
his exchequer by robbing a storo. Ho se
lected his crib and "cracked it ;" but tho
vory moment he thrust his head insido
tho storekeeper placed tho muzzlu of a

lifted off tho top of his head. It is enough
to say perhaps, that Mr. Ashgravo "took

One of the most urgent needs ol the

health officer. The very fact of tho ap
polntment of such nn officer would have a
most sulutury effect, us without nnv di

The extent to which horticultural pur

dred dozen heads. Tho tamo gentleman
has realized, during the season, about $1,
200 00 from peat ; about $000 from green
beans, over $700 from radishes, and tho
sum of Sl,o00 or 52,000 from vegetable of
other kinds, such as carrots, turnips, beets)
etc. Mr. Smallenburg's income fulls hut
little short of $10,C00 per year, and every
dollar of it is expended in and about the

Caroline Lewis ami Daniel Miller, both

Then tho whole matter was referred to

Wo uro confident that Egypt will go
into tho convention with a full determin

Republicans und Democrats, and tho re
sped, at leait, of the opposition. Know
ing something of the relative popularity
and general fitness of tho several gentle
men who havo been spoken of in connec
tion with places on tho ticket, we feel war
ranted In saying that tho Egyptian delega
tion may safely ask that John Q. Harman,
Esq., of Alexander county, bo tondored
tho nomination for tho offico of secretary
of st lite. His superior qualifications aro
acknowlodgod, not only in Southern Illi

sort what no man will dony when wo say,
that tho Democracy would unite in his
support, cheerfully and enthusiastically.
Wo havo nothing to say on tho score of
"Egypt' claims." AVo propose to lond
tho ticket a hoarty support In almost any
evont, but wo do say that tho nomination
of Mr. Harman would greatly strengthen
tho ticket in Southorn Illinois, without de
tracting anything from it in other sections.
In that spirit of compromlso that will and
must prevail, tho Liberal Republicans
will como up in solid philunx to Mr. Hur
