that two hundred of tho lx hundred
Deroocrati of that county will not volo
for cither candidato at tho Presidential
election. IIow sad ! Try again, Brother
"Wright. You aro making wondorful
progress in tho beautiful art of staining
tho truth of coloring it with tho color of
tho glatici through which you look at
public affairs.
Thomas Mots, a moss-covered Demo
crat who should, like the moss-covered
bucket of tho school book rhyme, hang in
tho well, or somowhero elso, has
rushed into print to say that ho cannot
support Grceloy, becauso Greeley Is not a
Democrat or tho friend of Democrats or
Democracy. Lord bless tho wretched old
mossy Moas, and may tbo spirit of Bour
bonlsm dwell and abido with him world
without end, amen I It is an important
fact that Moss lives at Grayvillo, Whito
county, in this state, and takes bit whisky
straight.
How does Gen. Jones stand on the tariff
question ?
Hartzell should be required to pan out
bis ideas on the tariff question.
Wall's position on the tariff question
should be again affirmed "in public on the
stsge."
The probabilities aro that Mr. "Wall
will be nominated on tbo first ballot to
day. Gov. Brown has recovered from tbo
attack of soft-shell crabs which so nearly
deprived us of a candidate for the Vice-
Presidency.
no.v. W. A. "Wallace, who was chair
man of tho Pennsylvania delegation in tho
Baltimoro convention, a vehement antl-
Greeley man until two-thirds of tho con
vention had voted for tho good old man
of tho old whllo hat, has lately tnado a
peech in favor of the regular ticket. To
those Democrats of tho North who refuse
to support Grcoley, becauso ho has been,
tho author of so many of our woes, he says,
we should remember that when the iouds
of Cnsiar and Fompoy bad well nli?h de
stroyed tho Romnn state, and tho Rubicon
was passed, tbo patriot Cafo, that "noblest
Roman of them all," when called to coun
sel for its safely, although tho bitter an
tagonist of Fompoy, promptly advised
that all power be given to him, for, said
be, "the authors of great evils knew best
how to remove them."
The convention to-day should adopt a
resolution defining tho position of the
Democrats and Liberals of this district on
the tariff question.
"We hope the Jones-Winler Liberals
and the "Wall-Hartzell Democrats may be
induced, to-day, to shake hands across tho
bloody chasm.
The indications aro that Mr. "Wall will
be nominated for Congress on the first
ballot, but wo may not be a correct reader
of the signs of the times.
iioN. Bobert M. Knapp, of Jersey
county, has been nominated as tho Demo
cratic member of Congress in tho Eloventh
District. Ho secured tho prizo on tho
elghty.flrst ballot.
Slates are a good thing In their placei
but their place is not in tho Doraocratic-
Liberal party. "Whonever and wherever
the Dcmocratic-Llborals, who care more
lor me cause than men, find a slato

Hon. Wm. H. Green, who was ap
pointed presidential elector In this district
on the Greeley tickets has declined to ac
cept the appointment, giving as his rea
son that he desires a Liberal Republican
to be selected in bis stead. The Judge is

Tux Murphysboro 'Argus' of 18th Inst.,
says :
Alexander county, wherein Is located the
"hub" of Illinois, instructed her delegates

Tbo Democrats of this city havo never re
ceived any favors from their neighbors,
and are always ready, as in tho catoof
Col. Townes, to yield to the demands of
their neighbors in other counties. There
is not in Cairo a Democrat who

Whllo he was attempting to onforco upon

ican citizens before tho law and in political
rights and privileges, he said :
If in the onward march of the times, some

Acotemporary truthfully and pertinent
ly remarks that when Logan said of Grant
year ago, "that he is not competent to
'preside over a ward caucus," he had no
idea of securing a five hundred thousand
dollar Indian appropriation to bo diitrbu
ted by his friend Major Wbam.
"Stick up for you man P Is tbo slogan
of the day, "D n tbo party j let's get
our fellow in and trust to luck I" is tbe
rallying cry. This is the language of
partisanship, but not of pstrlctism, and
should not but will control tbe convention
to-day.
The Tribune commenting on Senator
Bayard's letter, in which he asserts his
adhosion to Grceloy, says that if tho best
Grant man in Washington were asked, in
a moment of candor, by a foreign acquain
tance, who were tho most ominont and
unlvorsally respected membors of tho Se
nate, would not tho names of Sumner,
Trumbull, Scburz, Bayard, and Thurman
bo among tho very first which would
corao to his Hps ? But in a moment ho
would remember that tboso bolonged to
tbo hostilo camp, und ho would fill up his
list with tho namos of Nye, Chandler, Ca
moron, Conkling, and Flanagan. Wo
who bolievo in true Democracy, in truo
Republicanism, in popular progress, will
naturally look for success to tbo sido in
which tbe boat brain and highest charac
ter aro enlisted. And thousand of young
mon standing this year at tho cross-roads
will follow gladly in tho steps of these
men, whoso names are a guarantee of wis
dom in action and whose company is it
self a distinction.
In bis speech at Wilmington, North
Carolina, Senator Wilson denied that a.
person could voto for Greeley and still be
a Republican, and declared that a vote for
Greeley was a vote to defeat the Repub
lican party. Take tbat down, Bourbon
Daaocrat.
TK Democrats of North Carolina are
eonldent of success at tbo approaching
lection in that state, but wo fear they
will be disappointed. The administration
li bending every energy to defeat the
Democ ratio ticket, is colonizing negroes
from other states and spending tho monoy
of tbe people with a prodigal band,

Wk, X. Brown, of Massac, has been

Horace Greeley has boon independ
ent in hia political course over since be be
came editor of a political paper. He has
dono much and very efficient labor In tbe
party harness, but be has led tbe drivor
far oftener than his driver bas compolled
him to follow along a beaten path. In
1868 ho was aware of tbe necessity of a
change in the organization of parties and
would havo supported tbe Democratic
pnrty if It had nominated Chase, as would
also thousands of other R-publlcsns. In
1871, Mr. Greeley wroto ih following let
ter to a friend, and in It wo can catch a
glimpse at least of his determination to
make an issue with thomallclous members
of his parly, who are determined to neith
er forget nor forgive. He wrote:
I agree with you that Mr. Chaso ought to
have been nominated for president in lbOS.
Whether elected or not, the nomination
would have done much to heal tbe wound
opened by the war. Ah to what the future
may uniom, let us not be Impatient. I can
not see ray own way clear to the end of 1872,
and, of course, am not qualified to advise
others. Horace Greeley.
From the Mound City Journal.
COMPROMISE CANDIDATE FOR
CONGKESS-JOUN H. OBERLY.
Mound City, 111., July 17, 1672.
H. F. Potter, Esq. :
Dear Sir; The triangular struggle for
nomination for congress In this district, be
THE COVNENTIONS TO-DAY'.
The Democratic and Liberal Republican
nominating conventions of this district
will meet to-day in this city, and wo hope
and believe their deliberations will result
in harmonious action and tbo nomination
of a candidate who will carry tbo district
bv a largo majority.
'NTbe Democrats and Liberals can carry
thlsdiatrict, but to do so they must be uni
ted in harmony and influenced by an en
thusiastic desiro to succeed. This consum
mation may bo reached by wi9o notion in
tho conventions to-day; but this action
cannot bo hoped for unless tho delegates
shall strip their minds of every considera
tion which may Induco them to voto for
this man because certain men nri his
friends, or against that man because cer
tain men are opposod to him. Each dele
gate should dotermlne In bis own mind, af
ter carefully considering tbo wholo situa
tion, which of the men namod would' bo
tho strongest candidato, and voto for him j
or, if tho delegato should como to tbe con
clusion that tho wlso policy is tbo nomina
tion of.iome otbor man ho should not hesl-
tato to advocato that policy. Neither
Wall, Uartzoli nor Jones bas any right to
the nomination any exclusivo right, nnd
should not rccelvo it If tbo beat intoroata
of the coalition cannot bo conserved by
the nomination. Indoed, if it should ap
pear to tho delegates that a "now man"
would contributo to strengthen tbo coali
tion, tbo convention should not hesitate to
tumble ovorboard tho gentlemen who aro
seeking tho nomination, and put up as tho
candidato some other porsnn.
This is tbo truo policy, and wo feel com
pelled to suggest it, but we do so bollov
ing tbat tbe thing is Jixid and that an evil
influence which has been as a mildew to
tbe party in this part of tho Slato for
years, still dominates still controls.
OGLESBY AS A RHETORICIAN.
Mr. Oglesby, candidate of tbo Long
Branch Party for Governor of Illinois, is
one of tbe most popular orators in tbo
State. Ho stands boforo Logan in tbe es
timation of his partisans, who never be
come weary of the labor of praising bis
eloquence and skill in debate,
Tbo intelligent unprejudiced man who
hears these praises if the doubty Rich
ard's oratorical ability, may be permitted
to Indulgo in much astonishment, since
there never was any other man not even
Logan who could heap so great a load of
the chaff of words upon the small grain of
common sense ho occasionally allows to
fall Into bis verbose utterances. HU ate
speech at Chicago was nothing drawn out
to its extreme length; itTwas a bundle of
words in which there was neither argu
mont nor idoas, a rigmarolo of twaddlo, a
mass of generalities tbat bad no glitter
about tbem, a production that no intelli
gent man could prevent himself from be.
of time with myknapsnck on my back, wan
dering along with old brogans ond a straw
hat, I will not envy the man that Is ahead of
me.
In this scntonco Mr. Oglesby aboots a
man out of a phalanx, makes him become
a comet In tho dizzy future and burst with
flame about himself liko a metor. This
will never do; it is terrible
Aftor asserting that tho peoplo hold tho
reins of government in this country, Mr.
O. shouts :
If any man supposes that he ran make
any Impression upon the public mind of this
country, by nssnlllmr the rights of the people,
let him try It In Chicago, or Cairo, or any
where clc, and you will hoon i-cc him til t
ped up.
"Flipped up " is good, but it Is cxcolled
by tho ox-Govornor's description of tlio
mannor in which tho Republican party
has and will " run this government." Ho
says:
We know that all the conflicting Interests
thnt affect forty millions of people, Mretch
ing out over three mllliout of square miles,
over U7 States nnd 11 Territories, ovcrmoun
tain, hill, and dale, and vale, nnd plain, nnd
ocean, nnd river, nnd lake, and sea, nnd
culf, nnd stream. wo know how to take
Bold of and grapple with the complicated
Interests that concern this vast people, to
reconcile them, und to shove on the old na
tion like a car upon a greased pine board.
Lrughtcr.
That this is elegant no ono will main
tain ; that it is racy no ono will deny
The old nation being pushed along by tho
motley crowd of Radicals whito nnd
black, bunest men and thieves, patriots
and traitors "liko n car upon a greased
'pine board" is a picture at onco re
markable and amusing.
Tbat tho ex-Governor is a Radical,
dyed in tbo wood and imbued with tho
virus of the most obnoxious principles of
tbat party, appeara in tho fact tbat bo en
doraea tbo outragea of the Radical thieves
at the South, tbe military occupation of
Chicago, all the robberies of the Radical
ring tbat surrounds thu President, the pro
tective tariff, the ku-klux laws, the aus
penaionof tbe habeaa corpus, tbo obliter
ation of all tbe rights of tbe States and
tbo establishment of tho doctrine that
when tbe Preaident and Congresa believe
that tbo lawa of Congresa or a State are
not properly enforced within any State,
Congress and tbo President should have
the right to send tho army into such State,
North or South, to enforce tbo laws in
accordance with the views and
interests of Congress and tho Presi
dent; but tbo devotion of Mr. O. to
Radicaliam la particulary declared in
tbe following peculiar, not to say unique
paragraph, which should be reud with all
becoming deliberation.
Go back to tho day that Abraham Lincoln
was inaugurated; read his record, reud lilt
proclamation", read hit message, read hH
addresses, read lit h fpeechvn, and then ko to
congress aim ucgiu on mc verv day or tils
Inauguration, or on the 4th of.Iiily when the
cxtru session met. Head every act passed
ut Hint kpuslnn. nverv liiilltnrv net tiritnil nml
signed by AbnihaiifUncoln ; read every act
of every Congress afterwards; everyone of
the Congresses of the four years whilst he
was there, either at tho regular or special
term. Go all through with the nets of tho
Republican Congress as a Kepubllean Con
gress, while Johnson was President and
ugalust us. Oo read the acts, tho statute
books of every one of the actions ol the Re
publican Congress. Then go down to Gen
eral Grant; read his Inaugural address, read
Ills messages, read what lie lias done aa Presi
dent, read the corresponding legislation of
Congress, read tho nets of Congress passed
in consonance with the action of the Presi
dent, rend all the legislation, and then come
back and tako nil our platforms, take them In
every State In tho Union, In every city, In
every county. In every nreelnet. In every
township, down to every garden, aml Mage,
and house, and man. Tako them all. the
acts of our President and our Congress, and
our people, nnd I tell you to-night that, as a
ncpuiMicun cuniuuate tor liovernor oi Illi
nois, I ratify and indorse thu whole thing.
In all this long speech from which wo
havo abovo quoted tbero is not ono sound
roason given in support of tho policy of
the Republican party, unless one may bo
found in tho elegant expression, that "It"
(tho Republican party) went and took
twelvo cents a pound right slap off of to
bacco I" It is all stuff tho weakest kind
of mean demagoguish twnddlo.
THE POPULATION OF PARIS.
Thoconaus of Paris, takon in 1871. lm
juat been niado public. It shows that the
population .or the city at that tlmo was
i,7iH.3BO. According to all calculations
based on tho nulnnucnnlal census. It !
shown that tho population of Paris in 1871
should havo been just about 2,000,000, so
inai I'aris lost uy war and t,a Uornrnuno
at least 200,000. Such n loss Is easily ex
plained. When tho war broko out, at least
100,000 peoplo of German birth, who had
come to ilvo in Paris, nnd wcro among its
most uselui and industrious Inhabitants,
woro compolled to lenvo. Probably 60,000
peoplo of Paris perished in tho war with
Germany, In thnt of the Commune, nnd of
starvation, diseaso and general misery
orougni on uuring mo siege xno pros
trntlon of business drovo thousands more
to other cities, as soon as tlioy could got
away from Paris, and tho overthrow of
tho Empire nnd tho removnl of tho scat of
govorntnent to Vorsallics, enn easily ac
count for enough moro departures to swell
tho wholo number, to nt least, 200,000.
This actual loss of Inhabitants, most of
whom were useful and prosperous, is part
of tho heavy prico Paris lias bad to pny
for tho war which hor populaco and pross
were mainly intsrumontnl in bringing on.
wnon, in auumon, mo destruction of
public buildincs and monuments, tho loss
of trade, tho depreciation of property nnd
tho tbaro in tho burdens of taxation! that
tho wnr indemnity imposes, nro nil con
sidered, it really seems as If Paris hud
rather moro than hcrshnro of suffering for
tho follies and crimes that brought so much
trouble on France.
afirThe valuation of property In Bos
ton is said to have Increased (40,000 000
In real eatato and 520,000,000 in personal
property. Thia increaso reduces tho rate
of taxation to about $11 on $1,000.
