When the Union army entered V.cka
burg, tbey found in the office of the Cit
izen a form just ready for the press.
Some soldiers were put to work and ii a
ehort time a postscript briefly relating
the story of the capture was in type. The
supply of paper was exhausted and the
only thing that could be found to use
was wall paper. The soldiers preserved
their copies as relics and brought them
home. An original copy of this editiom
is in Decatur.
Thb aesnraDce comes from St. Paul.
Minn., that Cardinal Gibbons will proba
bly tucceed Leo XU as pope. A suffl
cient reason why he will not, the Du
buque Telegraph thinks, is supplied by
the fact lhat the Italians, who cods Hute
a majority of the college of cardinals, will
refute to ote for him. The Italian car
dinals are simply men, and it Is altogether
unlikely that tbey will deliberately en
danger if not forfeit the advantage and
powtr they now enjoy by supporting for
the papacy a candidate of another nationality.
Tas proportion of travelers killed in
railroad accidents in France from 1S75
to 1880 was one to every 24,000.000 of
passer gtrs and ene wounded to every 1.
000,000; in England for the same term
one to every 21,000,000 of paf senders
waa killed and one to every 695.000 was
wounded; on the German railroads acci
dents are more frequent, although the
number of travelers leM one to every
fc.OOO.OCO of passengers was killed; in
Belgium between the years 1881 and 1888
one to 6.630,000, waa killed and one to
77U.C00 passengers was wounded; in the
United States there was one to 1,800.000
killed and one to 428,000 injured.
So completely has a beard, recently
grown, changed the appearance of Con
gressman Allen, of Mississippi, the in
veterate joker and story-telier, that he
was able to fool Senator Coke, of Texas,
last week. The latter gentleman used to
be very familiar with Mr. Allen's counte
nance. bat failed to recognize it when the
Mississippian was introduced to him
under a bogus name, "Mr. Beeman." as
a new member of the bouse. "Senator
Coke, of Massachusetts, I believe." slid
Mr. Allen, in exchanging salutations;
whereupon tbe Texan vigorously repu
diated the Bay eute, and wondered wby
Mississippi sLould send such greenhorns
A comparison of two republican ad
ministrations shows that iff one year cf
Arthur's administration the excess of ex
penditures over income was only a little
more than $1,000, (XK), while in one year
of Banison's sdm nistration tbe excess
was more than (97 000, 1 00, a difference
of over 96.000.000. The democrats of
congress have a work of retrenchment
and reform to perform. Tbey must give
to tbe people a pledge of practical value
by reducing very nmerUIly the expenses
of the billion dollar congress. This is in
deed a billion dollar country, but there is
no reason on earth why tbe people snould
be robbed of their money by a ring of
subsidy grabbers. Tbe democrats must
decrease tbe expenditures by at least
The LouBiville G'eurier-Journal is con
vinced that Mr Blaine's highest ambition
will never be realized. It says:
Mr. Blaine will never be president.
More than any other living statesman
he resembles Clay ; the mantle of Clay
seems indeed to have fallen upon him,
and it carried with it the doom that pur
sued Clay throughout his career. If Mr.
Blaine is ever nominated again be will be
beaten. If be is ever nominated, and
has any show of election, he will die be
fore the day of election If he is ever
elected, he will die between tbe day of
election and tbe day of inauguration.
There is reason to believe that he under
stands this, and that ' when the time
cooks be will refuse to allow bis name
to co before tbe convention, leaving Mr
Harrison in sole possession of the field.

Carter Harrison, wlo in now an able
Chicago editor, seems to have objections
to Col. William It Morrison. As it is
well known that Editor Harrison is not a
elf-seekf-r. that he edits wholly for the
public good, and lhat he does not use bis
estimable paper for the settlement of
musty old scores on bis personal account,
it is perticent to ask him to state the
grounds of bis objection to Colonel Mors
Ia southern Illinois, and in the United
States generally, a great deal is known
to Col. Morrison's advantage. He is a
stalwart democrat, who has never been
anything but a democrat. In Its defeats
and its successes he has stood by the
democratic party, and be bas never
f MinUtd odds against its principles. It
wash who led the fighting which re
auluid lo the inauguration of a democrat -in
p(ilnt for the first lime in 28 years.
Wt)r ha has met reverse be has met it

Wf ffut'Mi years be wis a part of the
foi lorn hope of western democracy, and
it is due to him as mucb as to any other
on a man that democracy in tbe west ia no
lot eer a forlorn hope.
His honesty, bis courage, his devotion
to democratic principles are alike unim
peachable. If his leadership bas not
benn fraught with advantages to him
pe -sonally. it has been to the democratic
pa -ty, which has so profited by the
growth of western democratic sentiment,
pre mote d by its efforts, that it is now in
a i oeliion to dislodge the republican
pai ty permanently from control of tbe
lea line states of the west.
t'o closely is tbe work done by Colonel
Morrison identified with democratic suc
cess in the past and with the prospect of
suciess in the future that attacks made
on Sim by those who claim to be demo
crats excite surprise and indignation
among those wbo are really so Oo what
gromd of democracy can Editor Harri
son justify such attack?
