We would be willing to venture the oysters next November that Breckinri Ige gets ten j times ten votes in this city. The Enquirer says he wont get ten. There are men, we j believe, who will bet on five hundred in the countv. , The Enquirer is defending .Mr. W B. Kinney's fidelity to the Constitution- I al-Union party. We suppose it will be de. ' feeding Mr. Carlile's next. How is it that j Mr. Kinney makes speeches at Douglas i meetings, and Mr. Carlilo edits the Dougl:i3 oran ? This all looks suspicious of the ' good faith of those gentlemen in the Dell and Everett cause. Cii?"" Hon. Albert S. Whitk, of Lafay ette, was nominated for Congress by the Republicans of the Eighth District, on the 15th inst., in place of Isaac A. Ricei deceased. This is the best nomination that could hav been made. Mr White was formerly LT. Senator front this State, aud is a brilliant and solid man. gi'i. There is a probability of Carl Scut'RZ addressing our citizens in the En glish language to-night, if he ran bear the additional tax on hisstrenolh. 1 1 he speaks, it will be in Mozart Ball. There is a warm and general desire to hear him speak in the English lausruawe before he leavis. Carl Schurz was the gumt while here 0j Philip Decker, Henry W. Kllsworlh j of James G. Joneri, and Will Cu 01 back of j William T. Page. Mr. ISchurz leaves thL morning for Mt. j Vwrnon, where he speaks this afternoon. Messrs.

Mr. Bischof, of the Volksbote, w ill also address i the Germans in Boonville, in their own lan- j guage. FlLK YoL'Il PaI'EHS. We surest, iu view of the frequent need of referring to docu- ! nients and articles in the Journal, that our subscribers preserve their paper. They will ! find this to require very little trouble, add they will be repaid well for their care. A j person frequently recollects something that he or she has seen iu print, and sometimes j it is very necessary that an article should I be referred to. On such occasions, if the paper had been filed, it could be referred to ! and the desired information readily, obtain- ed. File iour paper. The OsMOcaATic Cocnjv Convention meets to-day at Bahytown. We do not kuow whether it is a Douglas or a Breck inridge Convention " the paper don't say.'' We enn't inform our readers, either, at what time of dav it is to meet. All we can find out about this is, that the official ! notice in the Enquirer says " on Saturday, ' the 18th day of August, 18C0," and an ed- itorial in that paper urges Democrats to "be on the ground early. ' Those interested j will have to find out tiie hour for themselves. We suppose they can do so by going to the i Sheriff's office, where all the necessary ''in- j structions" to tbe human machines are given. The old adage says that " the early bird ' catches the worm.' We suppose that the early Democrats will catch the offices. Our Sharif and his aid we presume went out i last evening and stayed up all night, so as to be up early in the morning. These Babytown Conventions are great institutions, truly, for hocus-pocus work. j If we recollect rightly, one was held there sometime last fall, in which somebody was j ' badly fool-ed and likewise deceiv-cd.'' How will it ba this time ? OtTB Pibxic Schools. We desire to direct attention to the announcement of the Board respecting the opening of our free schools, which may be found in another part of to day's paper. The 3d of next mouth is the date fixed for their commencement. As that time is rapidly approaching, it would be well for teachers and scholars to begin now to prepare themselves for entering upon their respective duties. Our public schools have thus fir been crowned with triumphant success. No efforts should bo spared to maintain aud improve upon the high posi tion which they have hitherto assumed. The publis are also reminded that all transfers for the benefit of the schools must be made prior to the 2oth of September. Those interested in this subject should lose no time in attending to it. Great Republican Demoustratiou. I.aat night, according to announcement, the Republicars had a grand demonstration in honor ot'Carl Schurz, Will (Turnback, aud Henry W. Ellsworth. At 7 A o'clock in the evening, the Wide Awakes, to the number of about three bun- dred, accompanied by the Crescent City Brass Band and a baud of martial music, commence i their march, to escort the speak- ers to their places of speaking. The companies were uniformed in black oil-cloth caps aud capes, aud carried their lighted lamps and American flags, fastened to long staffs. The officers were dressed in different colored uniform from the privates. aud cstrried colored hand-lampj. Their drill was excellent for new recruits, and was the admiration of the lookers-ou. The various evolutions were gone through with very skillfully, and. as a person looked along the serried lines of fire, or through the vista of light as the files moved in opeu order along the streets, the scene wa3 impressive in the highest degree. The steady step and deter l ueit r- m mined bearing of that semi-military ization gave it n moral power that is being felt in the cause its members have es poused. No man can look at them under drill and say that in their vocabulary there is any such word as Jail. By a short line of march, they reached the residence of Mr. Philip Decker, on Third street, between Vine and Sycamore, where the speakers were collected. The speakers, accompanied by Messrs. Decker, Page, and Jones, entered a carriage, which fell in at tbe rear of the procession. The procession then proceeded up Third street to Sycamore' up Sycamore to Fourth, up Fourth to Maini down Main to the intersection of First and Main, where the speaking was announced to take place. An immense crowd was in waiting. The ranks of the Wide Awake3 were formed in open order, and an avenue was opened through the crowd, and the carriage con taining the speakers was driven through to the stnnd, the lamps at a " present " in their honor. There were two stands one on First street, the other on Main. It was an , , .. . 0 , . ... i nounced, however, that Mr. Schuris health j would not permit bim to speak in the open I air, nnd he therefore proceeded to Mozart Wrl ln 1 wee a ec to e a grea a ,, ,, , ,, .. t , - i . i i- mirer of Mr. Thompson; he also claims Hall, and all tho.se w ho desired to hear him r ' . , - ,, i : i j- great reverence for Supreme Com t decisions iu the German language followed, including ; r .... , , , , ; in behalf of the Democracy. Ifovr does he the German U MM Awakes and Turners. ' V The Hall was quickly Oiled, the stuge I lish Mr. Thompson's remarks on this corn even bein, throned. Manv ladies were , promise-breaking, decision-defy infc Vandal- a J present. Mr. Schurz proceeded to deliver an exceedingly able address, which was fre quently interrupted by enthusiastic cheers There never probably has been it German political meeting of equal interest in this city. The orator spoke about two hours with great tfarnesluesi aud eloquence, lay ing bare the depravity of " Democracy, ' and showing the excellencies of Republi canism, with a master hand. At the First street staud, the exercises were commenced by a song from the Lincoln j Glee Club, in lively style. Sfr. J. G. Jones then introduced Mr. KIU- I worth. The latter gentleman stated that he j Rpofc against the orders of his physician j I having had the chills and fever the day be- I lore), but on seeing around him so vast a j crowd BO much larger than could have been assembled to hear Republican speak- ' er four years ago he would like to know j how any man could resist the temptation to speak. He couldn't, and should speak and j rifk the consequences. He accordingly I proceeded, in a speech three quarters of nn j hour long, with his characteristic eloquence I and impressiveness, to define tbe position, j claims, and prospects of parties. We Lave I pretty full note3 of his speech, but owing I IO the lateness of the hour, cannot go into i rlfftaii SnfficP! it. tn rv th.tt hiss effort wa I philosophical, eminently practical, and of a conservative and national tendency. It can" not fail to do great good for the cause. The C. C. Band performed, nt the close o' Mr. E.'s speech. "Yankee Doodle," in its usual inspiring style. Mr. Jones then introduced Mr. Cumback. This gentleman remarked that this was his first visit to Evansville, though he was a na tive Hoosier. He vindicated the patriotism of the Republicans most triumphantly, by showing that they had made no threats against the Union, while Democratic orntois and writers habitually do so. His party was decidedly a Fnion party. He attacked the record of the Democratic party, showing its inconsistency and corruption up in a strong , light. He showed how its extravagance had lost for the country $'J0,000,000 since Bu chanan took his se:U. He proceeded to strike right and left in the most effective style, and by his happy hits, appropriate anecdotes, and able arguments completely demolished what little there is left of the Democratic Gkbrir. Mr. C. threw much liht on his sub- ject, and made converts to the cause he . preached, by his irresistible facts. After he finished, the Glee Club sung a song, the band played a tune, and the audience was dismissed. The Wide Awakes theu formed into three divisions, with large intervals between ihem. Into these spaces, Republicans not members of tbe W. A. 's en tered, double file. A number of transpa rencies were carried by them. Notwith- standing the threatened approach ot a hard ed Q hisdivison for a month to come, owing .. ,T , ' to the scarcity of water. The malicious storm, the intrepid Republicans started on , . ,. e f, ".: , ,t7i.-v ' 1 destruction of the embankment at tncolacK their march.

It is hoped that those having charge parade was gone through with in perfect or- q Sto to get it into such condi- der, and iu due time the procession reached tjon as t0 meet the wants of the fall trade the intersection of Main and First streets, by the time above indicated.

AH the windows iu tin vicinity of the stand those even of the Library Rooms aud Hie Masonic and Odd Fellows' Lodges were filled with ladies. Everything passed off well. There was little disturbance, and uo disorder of much cousequence. We un- derstand that prominent Douglas men ex- erted themselves in quieting disorderly boy. We are glad to hear it, and cheerfut- y give them credit for tbeir courtesy, Taken altogether, this was one of the : finest displays ever seen in Evansrille. Speech of Hon. Riciiabd W. Thompson. We copied au editorial notice on Thurs day, from. the Terre Haute Express, in re gard to Mb Thompson's great speech at Terre Haute on the evening of the 11th inst. 1 To-day we commence the publication of the 1 phonographic report of it as given (in part) by the Cincinnati Gazette. We ask a careful reading of this able and candid speech. It sets forth the inherent wickedness of Locofocism, in a strong light. It denounces with exceeding bitterness all such unholy combinations with Douglasism as have been planned by Carlile & Co. It contemplates tie improbability of the suc cess of the Union candidates, and frankly declares the choice of its author to be for Mr. Lincoln in case Bell and Everett can't be elected. It establishes the fact of Mr. Lincoln's conservatism from the mouth of a disinterested witness, and clears him from Borne of the foul aspersions cast on his character by his political enemies. This speech like .vise demonstrates the utter ab- surdity of the cry of " dissolution " raised by designing politicians to hinder Mr. Lin- ! coin's election. We coramend to that political trader and : adventurer, " F. Y. C." of the Enquirer, j those portions of the speech which hold up tbe essential depravity of Locofocoism ; and I also the portion that shows the Democracy to be the habitual contemners and opposers of Supreme Court dectsioiu. Mr. Carlile, who so plainly shows his preference for Douglasism that he is editing a Douglas . . W" uu preaenrng uoug.as.sm ua.iy ana ; ic party, whose cause he i. upholding while pretcudiug an attachment to Bell and V. verett m Tnis speech is needed at this particular time, to thwart the machinations of those political gamblers who are scheming to produce a marriage of the monster, Doug lasism, to the fair daughter of the old Whig party. How they can staud before its ter- j rible olows we cannot imagine. How Fallen from theiu Bros Fstatk! ; The official call for the Democratic County i Convention to-day, signed by a bare ma- jority of the Central Committee, closes thus: "The subject of nominating candidates for the several County offices, to be filled at the ensuing October election, will be discussed. : If n majority of voters present are in favor of nominations, the Convention will proceed j to nominate forthwith ; but if the majority j are opposed to nominations, the matter will ue abandoned. "What a fall is there, my countrymen. ' "B"1 yesterday' the proud Democracy"might j hftvt' stood "gainst the world ; but now j tbere is none so i-oor as to do them rerer- j ence." One year ago, the Democracy of Van- ; derburgb, so largely in the Majority and so , defiant, had only to meet openly in the Court House, nominate their candidates and j elect them without an effort. Now how is , it ? They quarrel amongst themselves be ing helplessly split and demoralized in ref- j erence to their nominations ; they fail to ; agree, in fact they "fight like cats and dogs;'' they separate, each faction going its own road; a small majority of the Central Com mittee, under the control of a small Court House clique, call a meeting sub rosa, and locate it off in the country, away from the . large body of voters, where they will be se- cure in any packing arrangements they ' may attempt; and after all this they are not ; certain of being able to nominate. Truly this is a great coming down, when that i once powerful party dare not make an open and regular nomination. It is a sure s,a of 'h"eDt weakness. There came near being a serious ac cident yesterday. The spire of the First Presbyterian Church corucr of Second and Walnut streets is iu course of erection The frame-work or skeletou, made in two conical sections, one within the other, is now ; being fitted toget'ier. The smaller one had not yet been fastened to its place, when it 1 slipped down about ten feet. Some of the ; workmen were engaged ou the frame work, , but fortunately uo one was hurt and no damage was done that we heard of. Ii will : require considerable labor to raise the inner section aain to its position. StiRPENsios ok Navigation'. Maj. Down ing Superintendent of the division of the canal extending from this place to Newberry informs us that navigation will be suspend- County Commissioners' Districts. J n accordance with the provision of an old law of this State, eachcouuty is divided into three di?tricls, for the purpose, in elect ing county .ommissiouers, of having those officers located in different portions of the county, so that nil parts of the county shall be represented on the Board. Each commissioner is elected for three years, and the expiration of their terms are so alter nated that each year a new commissioner is elected. In this way, there are always two old members on the Board, and a new ele ment, fresh from the people, is infused into it each year. Having made a number of iuquiritss about the arrangement of districts in this countv, . . " and receiving no satisfaction, we yesterday went to ti e County Auditor's office for the information, and were furnished by Mr. Walker with the following facts. rnK . . , . . . . ,, 1 he commissioners districts, as originally u .,v, n..iBmaiij formed, were regulated by the then existing township lines. There were four townships Armstrong, Scott, Pigeon, and Fnion. The line dividing Congressional Townships 5 and C separated the two first named from the two last-named. Subsequently since the formation of the districts four new townships have been form ed Knight, Perry, German, and Centre. Perry and Knight lie entirely south of the Congressional Township line, but that line cuts Centre and German nearly in equal parts, there being a little more territory north in each than south of the line. We now give from the old Commissioners' Records tbe descriptions of the boundaries of the districts. At the May term, 1831, of the Board of County Commissioners, the following order was parsed : 'In pursuance of nn act of the General Assembly of the Stale of Indiana, entitled An act to regulate the mode of doing county business iu the several counties of this State,' approved Jan. 10, 18.31, it is " Ordered, Thai the County of Vander burgh be divided into districts a7! follows, to wit : "The First District commencing at the mouth of Big Pigeon Creek, thence ex tending up said creek to the mouth of Locust Lick Creek, thence up the said creek to the Forks, thence up the main East Fork of said creek to the Armstrong township line the line of Armstrong township at that time being the line dividing Congressional townships G aud Oj, thence east along the Pigeon Township line a continuation of the same line due east to the Warrick county line, then south along the Warrick county line to the Ohio River, thence down the Oiiio River with the meanders thereof to the place of beginning. gpgpM he Second i)istrii t commencing at tbe south-west corner of Armstrong Township where the said Congressional Township line strikes Posey countyj, thence north along the county line to the north-western corner of the county, thence east along the county line to the north-east corner of the county, thence south along the county line to the south-east corner of Scott township tbe south line of Congressional township 51 thence west along the Pigeon township line said Congressional Township line to the place of beginning. "The Third District commencing mt the south-west corner of District No. '.', thence extending south along the county line to the Ohio River, thence up the Ohio river to the south-west corner of District No. I, at the mouth of Big Pigeon Creek, thence up said creek along the line of said First District to the mouth of Locust Lick Creek, thence up said last-mentioned creek along the line of District No. 1 to tbe line of Armstrong township the aforesaid Congressional Township line, thence west along the line of said last mentioned township to the place of beginning. By reference to n, map of the township, it will be seen, by tbe aid of the official description, that District No. embraces all of Pigeon except that portion below Pigeon Creek, all of Knipht, and about two-fifths of Centtr township ; that District No. 2 embraces Armstrong and Scott townships, and about three-fifths of German and the same portion of Center ; nnd that District No. 3 embraces Union, Perry, that portion of Pigeon below the Creek, and about two fifths of German. This information will be interesting at this particular time, as there are two commissioners to elect iu October, and there has been fome question as to what portions of tbe county they are to be taken from. The Districts from which the can didates have to come are the First and Third, although the voters of the whole county voto for them. In the First District, a commissioner is to be elected in place of ' Mr. Michael Muentzer, his time expiring this year. In tbe Third District, n vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. Robert Par rett is to be filled, Mr. Hogue now occupy ing the position temporarily by appoint ment. It has beeu proposed several times, to make a new division of the county into districts, for the sake of convenience, and it is likely that the Commissioners will do so at no distant day. We think it ought to be done, as it is bard to keep within the recol lection the present division. If the change should be made, it would seem that the District ought to be consti tuted by townships, about thus: First District, Pijreon and Knight town ships. Second District, Centre, Scott, and Armstrong townships. Third District, (er man, Perry, and Union townships. Appointments ror Sir. Ellsworth. llou. II. W.

Our next Fair will be held at the Fair Ground near this city in September next, commencing on Tuesday, September 18th, and will hold for four days, closing on the 21st. This will afford some relief from the con stant clamor now kept up by the noisy pol iticians of the day; and the prospect of hav ing an opportunity to display, to an admir ing world, the product of our fields and work-shops, will draw the mind to its tru est intent the development of mind in its power over matter.

Our manufacturers, mechanics, and mer chants, as also our hotel keepers and livery stable keepers, will be called upon during the next week for the purpose of getting them to advertise their business iu conspicu ous letters in the pamphlet premium list, and this too for a liberal charge. The money so received will be giveu for SHch objects as the board may direct, having an eye to the best interest of all. These premiums will be called The Citizens of Evansville's Pre miums.
