There must be some truth In the chargo
that Grant treated Rawlingi' widow bad
ly in regard to that memorial iund, for
tba father, brother and son, of tho late
secretary, wh reside at "Warren, 111.,
re all enthusiastic for Greeley and do
Bounce the president without measure.
The PitUburg convention was a side
show in the interest of Grant. It bnd no
other aim, and a gonoral knowledge
of that fact has largely counteracted
its influence. Indeed, since the conven
tion failed to confine itself to the object
originally intendedv the cause of Greeley
and Brown is rather helped than hurt by
it. The administration at Washington
was bad enough for it to carry, but it at
tempted to shoulder the Radical candidate
for governor, Hatranft, and broke its back.
Leading Republican papers of the Key
stone State solemnly warned the conven
tion not to endcrse that odious man, but
the warning was disregarded. Tho result
is, the honest Grant organs confess that
the success of the national ticket is imper
tiled, and that the convention instead of
accomplishing a great good for Grantism,
inflicted upon it great and permanent
evil.
In view of the fact that every Demo
cratic and Liberal paper in the country
has repeatedly exulted over tho elections
in Vermont and Maine, and pointed to
the result ss a sure indication of the elec
tion of Greeley and Brown, the Grant
press unbluihlngly Inquire why tho Gree
ley press hss nothing to say about tho
Maine and Vermont elections? The truth
is the Greeley press has had moro to say
about the elections in those states than
Grantites have cared to read. They have
bad it to say that the Greoleyltcs reduced
the judical vote in Vermont over 7,000
votes or from 32,000 to 25,000. They
have had it to say that the
Graeleyites reduced the Grant majority 1
t Maine over 12,000 votes, or, from 28,030
to less than 16,000. They have bad this to
say, and no honest Radical in America
can deny that it discloses a change in po
litical sentimsnt that will, juit so sure as
la mb sets upon the day of the next prei
Idsstlal election, elect Greeley and Brown
by bb overwhelming majority.

Uftlftta ewtburtt of patriotic lodlgaa-
tlon, (which found voico through tho
columns of tho Domocratlo Motropolis

uncompromising Mao declared thai "Col,
Forrlll, tho Radical, candidate, received
neither a majority of tha votes In tho pre-
clnts nor of the delegates In tho county or
district conventions, and is therefore a mi
nority candidate." For this reason, and
because the mombors of the nominating
convention heaped disgrace upon them
selves, Mac makes this emphatic avowal :
"I have, over and over again, declared
publicly and privately that I would not
vote for Ferrill becauso he Is not tho can
didate of tho Republican party. 1 have
never taken it back."
It has como to our knowlcdgo that Mac
is not tho only Radical by a hundred or
more, in Massac county, who will not vote
for Ferrill. This is not so becauso of
Mac's disaffection, but because, in tho flrst
place, tho Senatorial convention was n
farce that disgraced all the actors ; and
secondly, becauso tho Llborals of tho dis
trict bavo placed a gentloman in tho field

and a man of tho peoplo who possesses nil

mako a popular candidate nnd an able, n
thoroughgoing and dignified senator.
Because of the facts recited, and othors

RADICAL AND LIBERAL -WARFARE
CONTRASTED.
Every honest, conscientious voter of the
Eighteenth congressional district, whether
ho bo a Llboral, Democrat or Radical, is
willing to urgo or acknowledgo (accord
ing to the stuto of his feelings upon tho
subject) that tho Domocratlo prossSn tho
pending congressional contest, has dealt
with tho Radical nomlnoo liborally and
honorably, while tbo return of tho Grant
organs in dealing with Mr. Wall has been
conspicuously unfair and signally dishonest.
What aro the facts In tho case? Tho
Du Quoin 'Tribune,' a sheet or some
ability and influence doclared at tho out
set of the canvass that George W, Wall,
then the probablo nominee of tho Lib
eral party, was a. gentleman of .distin
guished ability and undoubted personal
popularity; and that there was, in tho
Republican party, a man who, against
such a candidate, could bear tho party
banner on to victory, tbo 'Tribuno' re
garded as a fact that admitted of serious
questioning.
No sooner had Mr. Wall received tho
Liberal-Democratic nomination, however.
than tho 'Tribune,' in utter contempt of
its provious utterances, unblushlngly at
serted that Mr. W. was a man of no per
sonal strongtli, of very indifferent ability
and, in short, Just such u man as Isaac
Clements, then tbo Radical nominee, was
hoods. Caring nothing for (ho rldtculo of
his sonslble readers ho has Insisted, how
evor, that Iko Clements Is honest nnd con
scientious, and industrious and able. N ow
and then ho has reproduced sonio of tho
' Plalndealer's ' " whoppers j " but pos
sessing a consclenco nut wholly seared, ho
has pormitted thorn to pass for what thoy
were worth, which, with tho editor htm
solf and tbo well informod portion of his
readers, was oxactly nothing.
Tho Pulaski 'Patriot, Motropolis 'Jour
nal,' Johnson County 'Ilerald,' Golconda
'Herald,' Anna Advertiser,' tho Cairo
'Sun' and Marion 'Progress' play subordi
nate parts In tho gamo of defamntlon nnd
downright misrepresentation, yet tho ag
gregate thoy complete fully warrants tho
assertion with which wo started out, that
"tho Grant press of tho district, in its
'dealing with tbo Liberal congressional
' nominee has shown itself conspicuously
'unfair and signally dishonest" as ut
terly unworthy tho respect of deeont vot
ors or tho confidence of anybody.
It is with prido and satis
faction wo turn, now, from a
contemplation of tho dlsroputablo
warfare waged by tho Grant press, to tho
frank, open-handed, dignlfiod nnd honest
course pursued by that portion of tho
press that espoused tho causo of Libornl-
ism. Every Liberal editor in tho district
has heard that tho honesty of tlio Radical
congressional nomlnoo has been seriously
suspected; that ho has exultingly con
fessed that $2,000,000 of the people's
monoy has been expended by his party in
the interest of its candidates. Thoy have
heard that hois "down on tho Dutch,"
nd " abhors tho brutal Catholics " They
havo heard that ho would forco negro
children into tho schools nnd climes of
white cbildron, and that bo would "clasp
bands with tho rebels across tho bloody
chasm " provided ho was assured that tho
chasm rcachod to the central fires of tho
earth, and thnt ho could, at tho proper in
stant, muster sufficient physical strength
to Jerk every mother's son of them Into
tho fiery nbys3. This and much more
tho Liberal press has loarnod ;
but desiring to conduct tho canvass in. a
high-minded, honorable manner, the Rad
ical press has been forced to acknowledgo
that, "although Isaac Clements has beon
two months before the people, tho Demo
cratic papers havo made no assaults upon
his porsonal character urged nothing
against his charactor as a man or his
worth as a citizen."
"Wo nee'd not say more. The whole
story is told by this acknowledgement
tho Liberal press is confessedly just, high-
toned and dignified the Grant press
largely given up to tho utterance of gross
personalities, transparent falsehoods, and
lander and slang.
bound to bout in tho district by at least
three thousand votes.
Put theso two ttatements in Juxtaposition,
and who can say that tho editor of the
Tribuno' is honest, Is conscientious, is
truthful 7
Tbo Sparta 'Plalndealer,' for bold-faced
lying is pre-eminent. If political truth
were worth a thousand dollars a piece, tho
editor of tho 'Plulndenlor' would bo com
pelled to beg for his bread. But as, In
Radical commerce, transparent falsehoods
are genuiuo currency, the 'Plalndealer'
flourishes.
Twelve yoars ago, when cowardly
blood-thirsty villains woro "spotting"
prominent Democrats as " trullori, " it
was churged that Goorgo W. Wall was a
member of tbo sccrot order known as tho
Knlghls ot tho Golden Circle. Logan,
and othor loading Domocrats, word placed
In tho samo category. Tho first man to
appear beforo tho Provost Marshal of
Cairo, to moot the charges preferred
against him, and to demand tho nnmo of
tho informer, was Gcorgo W. WhII.
Major Merrill, then acting as Provost
Marshal, took Mr. Wall by tho hand, and
dismissed him with tho remark : " I am
satisfied, my dear sir, that tho chargo
against you is falso, and I regiot,rorlously
regrt,tbal I listontd ovcn.for a single mo
ment, to the slander which bus boon ut
tered against you." Years passed on, Goorg
W. Wall gavo of his means nnd exorted
his influence to strengthen tho arms of Fed
eral government, nnd in doing so Incurred
the enmity of tho now immaculate Logan,
wuo swore that Wall had Joined the
Lincoln hirelings, and with Douglas nnd
other traitors to tbo Democratic purty,
- ! . .
w. (avunng a war lor tho abolition of
slavery.
The exploded slander ngalnst Mr. Wall
a chargo that was provon lo be falso
during the war the editor of tho 'Plain
dealer' now revives, and pretends that he
believes it I The more; statement of this
fact is enough. The editor of the " PJaln
dealer " has won for bimielf the distlnc
tion of being the chief Radical liar among
ten thousand, and the one altogether un
hesitating, shameless and persistent.
The editor of tbo Carbondalo New

AN UNLOOKED FOR PROCEEDING.
Tho ways of somo people, like those of
Providence, aro mysterious. Who would
havo thought, anytimo during tho day,
Tuesday, when tboy saw Walt McKeo on
a hunt for local items for tbo Bulletin,
as calm nnd unmoved as u Christian phi
losopbcr, that ho had marriago on tho
brain, and intended to porpetrato the
thing boforo tho close of the evening 7 Ho
didn't show it in his bearing, ho didn't
intimate it oven in his most confidential
conversations, or betray it otherwise. But
so it was. The flrst thing thnt excited our
suspicions was tho absence of election re
turns in tho Bulletin's local columns.
Nothing short of marriago or death, wo
concluded, would excuse, in to vigilant a
reporter, such a pulpablo neglect. An
hour later wo descried him in thedlstnnce.
n our mind, then tho thing was fixed.
Ho was not dead, but married. This con
clusion wus confirmed a moment after
wards, "Yes," observed a knowing friend,
"about eight o'clock last night, in the
midst of tliu storm, 1 tnw himuii u wild
hunt for a minister. I kept my curs open,
and soon afterwards learned the particulars
embracod In thu'followlng announcement:
Married on tho evening of the '.Mtli Inst.,
by tho Rov. Fred. L. Thompson, nt the
residence of Mr. Uonry Loflin, Mr. W. F.
McKeo nnd Miss Muriu Slocum."
And so passed Wult McKeo into tho
blissful state of matrimony. Long lifo
and good luck to him nnd his. May thoy
realizo nil tho happiness they havo antici
pated, and livotosoo afultscoro of Macks,
blood of their blood and flesh of their

Wlmt matters it whether ho filled one
ofllco or another, or no olllco ? Tho ofllco
does not muko tho man j it is moti like
mis Hint clorify'and dignity olllcct. Well,
our friond passed nway; the generation of
which ho wns ono pussed-away, nnd there
camodark days over our union, dnys of
hatred nnd strifo and vlolenco nnd dis
ruption, and It looked ns If thu
sun of tho American republic had fore
evor gone down. Despots exulted, aristo
crats txulted. " Well, thoro, " thoy
snld, "you sco whnt comes
of your frco Institutions.
Thoy nrs played on'.. Witness your
groat model ropublic." Well, years
passed on. Thcro wero revorscs; thoro
wero disasters, but thcro was still tho
faithful American heart, and after a timo
all tamo round ; tho union was restored ;
tho old flag was triumphant, und the peo
plo, tbo Atnorican pooplo, were brought
together. Well, from that hour I said :
Now let us try to bo friends again; yes,
better frionds than wo woro beforo. Wo
bavo fought, but the causo of tha- trouble
has passed nway; slavery is dead; thcro
is no moro reason why wo should tight; let
us try to bo hereafter countrymen, nnd lovo
and honor each other. So in thnt spirit,
with that purpose, I labored on for somo
years, scorned by many, misunderstood
by o'hers, callud a renegade, and honest
peoplo bolievlng that I had absolutely
turned my back on nil tho principles, nil
the ldcns of my hotter life. 1 think they
woro mlstukcn, my friends. I think new
clrcumstnnces. new conditions, now du

republic, that renovated republic, which
has beun founded on tho ovorthrow of tho
confederacy, that theso nro different obli

woro current thirty years ngo. I tried to

what shall bp, whnt must be, in that bet
ter mture, which I nm certain is opening
upon this peoplo that futuro of concord
una peace, or mutual rclianco nnd syinpa
thy which was not known in tho old
tl cuo. Why, many times I was told, fif
teen nnu twenty venrs ngo, vou
can come down to tho south nnd
nobody will hurt you. I snld
Why should anybody hurt me? Thoro
was never n moment 1 wished ill to tho
south, and never sought to do them harm
Why should you tell mo I will be pro
tested in tho south. I havo never lien
tnero because my duties did not call mo
there, but I fcol cortaln always that no
gentleman of the south would lay u liarMi
hand upon me, and I don't believo they
will let blackguards dr it. They wero
talking as If it woro charity to let mo pn.s
through. That hos pasted nwny, fellow-
citizcni. You may havo been ono of tho
most cflectlvo confederate snldclrs In tho
late struggle, nnd you may trnvol nil over
tho country, nnd 1 think no ono except n
very low, vulgar person will ollor you nny
Insult. I traveled to tho furthest part of
tho south, Texas. Inst year, nnd I wns
everywhere well received. I think every
northern man who west south minding
his own business nnd giving nobody cause
tor otiensu, was treated, not, so well per
haps, ns I was, but Ills porson nnd prop
erty woro just ns sacredly respected ns
mlno wore. Now, then, wo hnvu opened
up n new country. Thoro wns n timo
when that could not bo so. Thero wns a
timo when it wns not so that every north
orn man, whatever his principles, could
travel through tho south. Now they can
do so, nnd am glad of it. It does not
seem wo have come to n timo when wo
may say let all that has mndo alienation
between us perish. Let us think no moro
of our triumphs in the latostrugglo. Let
us rcjoico together that theso triumphs
have tended to produce good to the whole
