The special election to fill tho vacancy

to-day. Polls will be opened ot all tho
voting places in tho city. The candidates
aro M. B. Wiley, C.K. Slack and Robert. A.
Cunningham all oxcollent young men,
fully competent we believe, to fill
tho oflico satisfactorily. We have
heard hints of a purpose
upon tho part of the African voter:, to
take advantage of the division in tho
whito vote to run in Bird, tho negro
speech-maker ; but we do not think that
any movemont of that kind Is seriously
contemplated. Everybody should go to
tho polls, however, negro or no negro.
Tho election is ono one of somo Impor
tance, and should receive due attention.

Tho Grant negroes of Cairo nro de

of color shall livo in quiet nnd safety in

against tho Rev. Mr. Shores, for no other

by a crowd of negroes on tho opposite
sidewalk : "Wo want to know, Allen, if
you intend to voto lor that old traitor

freeman has a perfect right to do."
"Then," replied his assailants, "by G U
you shan't livo to do it," and following
tho words came a brickbut, thrown with
groat force at Allon's head. This missile
wos followed by two others, and had either
of them accomplished the end intended,
Allen would have been brained upon tbe
spot. Seeing his danger he sought a

Wo can add but littlo to the infamy of
