D. H. llnuKU Sik: My attention has
been called to a communication over your
name, published In tho Wkkkly Caiho
BULLETIN of Juno 13th. Ill it you state,
that you wore indicted by tho grand jury
of Ja'cksoii county for larceny of tho city
seal of Cnrbomlatu; you nlso (how llint
there wero no grounds for tho indictment;
and, upon trial, that n Jury returned n vor
dlct of "not guilty," without leaving their
scats. . Tlieso aro nil facts in tho case, nnd,
If you deemed ll necessary, no one ques
tions your right to publish them in nnVvcr
to tho communication to which you refer
In that communication, however, you
hnveseen lit to go further than n siinplo
statement of tho fact, nnd hnvo mado n
bitter personal attack upon Jtne, and that,
not by nnme, in n spirit of hato and Injus
tice which ill becomes n citizen of your
landing, much lest n member of an hon
ored christian chlirch, you havo mado this
attach in language both coarsu nnd nbu-
Ivo, and in terms at onco shameful nnd tn
tho bigbest degrco insulting terms ono
night expect from a bully or a blacliguard,
but which I havo been taught gontlcmon
do not use.
From the high respect I havo bad for
you, sir, I did not belicvo it possible lor
you to sloop to so low, and, to yourself, so
disgraceful an attack upon any porson, no
mutter how great your provocation, or
how much you deemed him your inferior,
Bo assured, sir, 1 shall not follow you to
tbo low ground from which you havo at'
tacked nio. Where my causa can only bo
ustnmcd by calling hard names, I shall
be silent. I shall carry on no contest with
you or any other man In slang uml Bil
lingsgate. 1 o ono who chooses such weap
ons, 1 shall glvo a clear Held. My tastes
do not run in that direction. However
"corrupt and " deytnerate" I maybe,!
am above such degradation. I prefer to
light my battles from tbo vantage ground
of a gentlomaii. My words, though they
may bo plain, ;wlll bo dignified and cour
teous. I glvo vou notice, sir, until
you como up to the same lovul, you will
wngonn uucrpuul warfare with me. I am
nbovo low 'putry tllng. 7Vry delllo only
the hand wh'.eh throws them.
If tho facts in the case so fur us they re
late to mo wero and aro us stated by you i
if tho showing you havo mado of my con
nection in tbo matter were a true showing ;
if I hud been tbo Instigator of, and, by
false swearing, had procured your indict'
merit ; if I bad donn all tlieso things,
though my wrong would not miiko your
attack upon mo any tho less course and
disreputable, any tbo les a di'graco to
yourself, it would havo tho merit, at least,
of sumo Justification.
But sir, you know when you mado your
attack upon me, that some person other
than myself, without my knowledge, pre
sented this matter to tlio grand Jury.
Who that party is you nviy know, I did
not then nor do I now ; you knew that
lames II. Campbull and myself wore sum
moned beforo the grand jury to testify in
tho matter; thut I was an unwilling wit
ness nnd protested against being In any
way connected with tho proceeding; that
beforo tbo grand jury 1 madu n simple
statement of the fuels connected with the
removal of tbo city seal from my office,
adding that in ny opinion no criminal of
fense hnd bcon committed, and that I
hoped tbo mutter would stop then and
there. That the grand Juiy, after oxnmin-
ing tho other witness, took a difleront
view of tho case, U not our fault.
You knew all the.o 'farts, not only from
general report, but you knew these from
my own statement mado in your presence
ut the bar meeting w hose resolutions you
published you then and thero heard mo
disclaim having any connection with the
case, except as I hud been forced into it
by order of tho court. You heard mo uv
that I was opposed to tlio proceeding from
my first knowlcdgo of il, which was but a
low minutes bcfoio 1 wus summoned be
foro tho grand jury ; thut I well know no
crime had been committed; (hat I so
stated when beforo tho grand jury and re
peated in private conversation with somo
of its members, and urged that the mutter
bu dropped.
Right hero sir, lot mo tell you, that
from tho llret, 1 havo deemed you guilty
ol'a glaring, high-bunded trespass in ink
ing tbo city soul und city desk key from
my olllce, in tlio manner you did, without
my knowledge, and after I hud refused to
allow you to tukeany of tho city property.
An opinion which is woll continued bv
your subsequent action in returning tlio
seal to my otlico upon the miiiio
day j on took it away a strange proceed
ing lor ono "who wus tho duly appointed
clerk of the city council," n you claim to
huvu been in your published article. 1
would like to ask, sir, upon whutpaguof
thu city record that appointment U re
corded.
I with to call to your mind tho grand
jury of ono year ugo, to which you pre.
tented, for thu crime of fulsu swearing in
our previoui city election, curtain purtius
worked uguinst you and your
party at that ulectlu,,, and" to whom you
attributed the defeat of your sidu-agallist
my protest, and younelf admitting that if
thu iudl.jimunt, wuru fuuud tliuy would
probably not bu sustained upon trial. 1
at that limo city clerk, at j(mr lnbtigutn,,,
most unwillingly wa. forced bufru Uio
grand Jury.
You know from your pnt experience,
from tho part you huvo taken in such mat'
tors, that tho persons who to.tlfy beforo
graiiu juries aro not always thu parties
who make the presentment nnd seek to
huvo uu indictment found ; you know also.
that I publicly und in private disclaimed
being a party to your indlctmont ; yet
kunwing all tln..,0 faoti, and that I knew
you know them, you huvo seen fit in tho
most widely circulated papers In Southern
Illinois, in language low and coarse, to
fling broadcast thu charge that I instii-ated,
and by fulsu swearing, procured your in
dictment. You cull inu u perjurer.
What you are and what you huvu done, I
leave to your own conscience lo name. I
shall not attempt to characterize, in fit.
ting termr, tho mar;, who, by misrepresen
tation and libel, attempts to build himself
loIbIu Ijlucken-
leavo that to yoursolf to do, bolloving thnt
out of your cholco and abundant vocubtl-
lary, you will not find tho taik n difficult ono
hnd rather bo indicted beforo a dozen-
grand Juries, bolng Innocent, than to carry
tho guilty contclousiic!8 of hnvlng written
ono letter pucb as you havo written.
lour silly cbnrgo that I belong to n
clique, nnd am run by n ring, is unwor
thy my attention and I pats It unnoticed.
If you wish so to bellove, you nro welcome
to nil tho satisfaction you can draw
from such nn opinion. If I had not re
fused to become tho pliant tool of yourself,
choosing to do my duty as I understood It,
rather than n dictated to mo by you, such
n churgo would ncvor hnvo bcon mado.
In closing I hnvo only to iay that this
is n quarrel of your own seeking; you havo
forced it upon me; I woronotn man should
refuio to meet it. I bolclvo in Old
Polotilous' ud vice
" Iletfnro
"Of cntranco loaqunrrrl but, btlng In,
"Hnr It that the opposer may beware of Ihec."
I should hnvo preferred to have remain
ed your friend, I am willing to beliovu
however, that my friendship i9 n mnttor'
of small momont to you. Bo assured sir,
in such n quurrol ns this, forced upon mo
ns this has bcon, your enmity U equally
small momont to mo,
I nm sir, respectfully,

The great Sncngcrfcst festival culminn
tod In a mammoth picnic nt thu fair
grounds last Sunday. Tho day was nil
that could bo desired, tho cool breeze tem
pering tho hot raya of tho sun, which was
nlso obscured moro or less by clouds
greater portion of tho time. Tho street
cars wero crowded. Bngcago wagons.
carriages, aiiytning unit could run on
wheels was speedily filled to overflowing,
When wo reached tho grounds, about U p,
m., thero were at least 10,000 persons on
tho ground. Twenty-two bands of music
wero playing in as many difl'uronl groups.
Songs wuro sung, and a happier crowd wo
never saw before, Among tlio Cairoltcs
on tho ground wo noticed Messrs. Herman
Meyers, Henry Latin er, Stocktlctb, Fred.
Koehlcr and others. Tho festival ns u
whole wns a grand success, tho receipts, In
cluding tho $51,000 subscription amount
ing to over $90,000, nnd tho expemes, in
cluding tho cost of tho hall, to ubout tho
sumo amount. Among tho item" of nx-
penso wns 317,000 for tho board of the
"Sncngers," (wouldn't Rexford liked lo
hnvo hud a slicoof that) $11,000 tor mil
sic and S1,000 to Mrs. Duxtor (not Delnr
ns your compositor had it Inst week) for hor
fourdays services. An i in memo amount
of beer wns furnished, ono beer garden
alone selling by actual count In twonty
four hours over 30,000 glasses. Spunking
of tho beer reminds us that no small iinn
tlty is consumod in Cairo, ns wo havo
been informed thnt ono brewery hero
(Lcmp) sends 1,000 kegs per month to
your city. Tho crowning glory of tho
present week has been tho great Sabbath
School celebration which occurred on
Thursday. All tho Protestant schools in
the city of every denomination joining In
tbo general demonstration, tho like of
which whs never beforo soen west of tho
Mississippi. Six bunds of music preceded
tills grand Sabbath School army, composed
of over L'0,000. On account of tho ox
tromo heat tho march wus very short, ex
tending only through Lucas Pluco nnd
round tho park Into Suengerfest hall,
which was completely tilled by tho littlo
ones.
Thu sight in the hall was worth n long
loumov to witness. Tho thousands of
white drosses, bluo nnd pink ribbons, tho
moving of tho nrmy of silk banners, tho
son of funs, und tho happy faces of tho
children, wero inspiriting in tho extreme.
At the tap of tho boll tho littlo ones roso
to their feet. Tlio magnlllcont band
of 100 Instruments played through the
grand old hymn, Old Hundred. Then
canio tho words, " Pruiso God from whom
all blosslngs flow," tho bnnd playing tbo
nlr.'and tho words sung by 110,000 children.
As tlio Hon. John llogun remarked in hi;
address, it was a sight ho never saw be
fore in his life, (and ho was a Sunday
school scholar slnco 1810), nnd hu never
oxpected to again. The children wero
very enthusiastic ami cheered everybody
on tho slightest occasion. Tho hall is so
vast in extent, that a person milking an
address from tho stngu cannot bo heard
over ono half tho building, notwithstand
ing which, when tbo jointed ripplo of np-
plauso wus heard from tho front, it in
creased to wave after wave, until it be
came a perfect tempest by tho time it
reached tho rear of tho building.
Two very important conventions havo

which will swell tho list up to over two
hundred lor tho week, which is about
double that of the precodlng one.

Just before his inauguration in 1809,
Gon. Grant sold bis lioiiso in Washington
to S. J. Bowon for $10,000. Bowcn paid
Sl,000 to hind the bargain, nnd took front
Grant a contract to convoy thu property
by ded.
"Shortly afterward Gen. Grant wroto to
certain merchants in this city entreating
them to raise a fund and makaahundsomu
present to Gen. Sherman. Accordingly
they raised $100,000 or more, ostensibly
to give to Sherman; but out of this money
Gunoral Grant caused the sum ofii5,0U0 to
bo taken and given to himself, and instead
of it gavo Gen Sherman a deed for tho
hntiso which ho had Just previously sold to
Bowen for $10,000. In doing this hu did
not ask for Bowun's content, tier did lie
offer Bowon any indemnity for thus failing
to keep his contract.
