Wa would preTail upon evry nitn to
regieter f fata fall. According to our state
law, there has to be a general rcglstra
tion of all tbe voters every two years,
d those failing to comply with this
requirement will not be allowed to vote.
Tbe population of Missouri in 1870 was
1,721,295, and only polled 1-15,439 votes
in 18G3. Utliur states with populations
much loss polled from ono hundred to
two hundred thousand rcoro votes than
Missouri. It is true that then the mode
bf registration in this state was very pro
scriptivo, and thousands were not allowed
to remitter; but now thee disabilities
ore removed, uad every malo who has
attained a majority t-hould go to the
registering prccints promptly and have
his dame enrolled as a legal voter. AVe
have complained for years of unjust and
partial representation. In Missouri this
complaint can no longer be mado 'I he
people are masters of the situation if
tboy choose to exercise their authority
It is tli ui r duty to do this, and when Jut
calls to action, shall we who have eo long
labored under disadvantages now neglect
to exercise our power ? If tbo people
spoak out buldly, there is no danger to
the nation. The rings of corruption will
dissolve boforo their mighty voico, and
tho country be checked in its tendency
toward centralization. Then use the
means that are placed in your hauds
do your duty like man who are deter
mined to rule their land. This is a
republic the peoplo aro tho ruleis; hut
if they refuse or neglect to exercise this
functien, they may expeet, and that at uo
distant day, to see tlieir liberties aud
their rights receding from them. To the
men of this county then wo say Register !
Uo to your several precints on the 7th,
8tb and 9th of October, and enroll your
names as legal voters, and at the Novem
ber election cast your ballots like men
who know their privilege and duty, and
dare maintain their rights,
Delegates from the nine counties com
posing this (the Thirteenth) congres
sional dissrict, met in convention at the
ity of Mexico, on tho 17th, for the pur
pose of nominating a Democratic can
didal for Congress. Ed. C. Murray of
I'iko county was selected chairman, and
on motion of our townsman, Mr. E. N.
Bonds, tho following were electod secre
taries : F. 0. Klog of St. Charles News,
IV. W. Hjrria of Montgomery County
Loader, W. H. Bean of Paris Mercury,
and M. C. Brown of Monroo City Appeal.
The number of delegates present were
reported by tho committee on credentials,
and tho basis of representation adopted
at Jefferson City was agreed upon. After
the adoption of a resolution to choke off
nil speeches beforo the nominations (a
very sensible idea, by the way), Judge
A. U. Buokncr.C. II, Ilardiu, Ksq , Col
Theo. Braco and J. A. llockaday were
put in nomination. Judgo King'a namo
was not before the convention. On the
eall of counties it was ascertained thai
Judge Buckner bad received 62 votes
out of the 83 cast, and ou motioa he was
declared the unanimous choice of the
convention. Loud calls being mad for
Bueknsr, he appeared and addressed tho
delegates in an ablo aud effective manner.
Col, Brace also addressed tho assemblage.
The convention then adjourned in perfect
harmony after the appointment of au

Wo are sorry to learn that iff com
sections of tho county nn attempt is
biing mado lo introduce religion, or

county offices. (In the Democratic
ticket thcro are. candidates who utc uetn

as well as thoso who hold to no parties)
lar faith, arid why prejudices of this
nature should be introduced, wc tea no
reason, Yet it is Icing dono. It was
used against somo of the candidates be
fore tho primary election, and under
stand will bo persisted in at tli general
election, l,ot til good christians dis
countcnanco the move, whether it comes
from protcstant or catholic, lor no good
can coma of it, and a teligious war that
will border on disgrace will en-ue If nude
a question in this campaign. It is nco
essury that wa should elect good men to
oflici, and to deny that every religious
denominutien is blessed with many such,
Is an arrogant piece of folly. On the
ticket supported by tho llertihl, we find
an Kpiseopal, a Catholic, a Christian, a
Presbyterian, a Mutliodist, and others
whose religious belief wa know nothing
about. This is enough to show that the
Democrats voting at tho primary election
ignored any such issue, and will ignore
it when they cast their votes at the gen.
eral election. We lay emphatically,
frown down this mixing of religion and
The Alabama Claims.
It is belioved by tbe supporters of
Gen Grant at Washington, that after all
the privutu claims are paid out uf the
fifteen millions allowed this government
by the Geneva conference agaiust Great
Britain, that there will bo two or three
millions loft as u salve for the wounded
honor of the government. This is the
way they figure it out, according to the
Ucpublican's Washington special : Before
tho close of a year from Sept. 14, 1872,
the Knglish government is required to
pay to the United Slates the amount of
the award made, namely fifteen and a half
million dollars. This sum will go into
thc treasury, credited to the fund for
which it is paid. Congress at its next'
eeion will be a.'ked to legislate as to
the manner in which tho money shall be
paid out. A commission will probably
bo outhorized by Cengrest, to bo ap
pointed by the President, to examine and
decide all claims presented for loses on
account of the threo Ehips named, and
on tli decision of the commission their
claim will bo paid by th treasury.
After all the claims have been paid, it is
expected that a very large sum will re
main, which will go into the treasury to
reimburse the government in fittiug out
naval vessels for the capture of the pri
vateers and for reimbursing tbe United
States for the expenses of men, coal &c,
in uie various voyages oi snips sent in
pursuit. A calculation was mado at the
navy department during the session of
tbe high joiut commission in this city, to
ascertain the amount expended by the
government in the pursuit of the Ala
bama and other privateers, including tbe
cost of tho ships, the armaments, the
pay of the officers and the nun, the coal,
and tbe whole costs in auch particulars to
tho government, and tbe astounding fact
is presented that the sum amounted to
only about a million of dollars. The
remaining fourteen and a half millions is
therefore due to the claimants who suf
fered loftes from the depredations of tbe
rebel privateers. It is thought, hewever,
that 810,000,000 or 812,000,000 will
pay all the claims of this character, and
that th remainder will be appropriated
to the government.
The scrub Bullock of Georgia, the
thieving Governor, is in London. A let-
ler from that eity of the 17th says :
"We aro favored here with tho presence
of x-Governr Bulloek of Georgia,
who was not long ainco notorious for
pocketing seven millions of bends of
Georgia. Last week two Washington
officials called on tbe ex-Governor. Two
or thrao of eur eminent lawyers and a
magistrate were soon engaged. These
worthies are called a commission, and
