The dust on the mad from New- l burgh to Boonville is ankle deep. The corn ! is suffering for rain. The wells are many of them dry, and if rain does not fall BOOB, then- will be absolute suffering amongst j the live stock for water tit drink. Water is already a rarity. 8fer" Messrs. Schurz and Ellsworth re turned to town on Saturday night. Mr. Cum back has also come buck, and gutt bpck to the centre of the State this morning, via Winslow and Washington. Mr. Ellsworth goes into Posey county, but will make us another speech next Thursday evi uing. Mr Schurz. goes up the Ohio river, to fill other appointments. The nomination of Albert S. White in the place of Isaac A, Rice (deceased!, in the 8th District, completes the list of Con gressional candidates. We publish the full list, and the names of the counties in the several districts, elsewhere. Those who ate accustomed to "keeping the run " of elec tions should preserve tVie list, as it is useful for reference. Goon A private letter to a citizen of our city informs os, that a speech delivered by Mr. Carl Schurz iu Waterloo, Monroe Coun ty Illinois, had induced nearly every Ger man in the city to come out for Lincoln aud Hamlin. Many of these Democrats have been in the party for ten anil fifteen years but convinced by Mr. Schurz that the only mission of that party is to extend the area of slavery, they cheerfully abandon the rot ten organization and take sides in behalf of dedicating free territories to liberty. . j The convenient arrangements and I - - . .. . . , ' good order, at the meetings on Friday night i t-. , ... j m.j . , i ougni to oe creauea to me lae awakes. It is A very effective organization, and is I doing a vast amount of good for the conn- try. The young men composing the corps in this city are learning lessons iu discip. j line, order, and political doctrine which will 1 be of the greatest beueht to them through t life. The time spent in the work before the ! organization is well expended. We do not believe a better organized or drilled battu! lion of Wide Awakes can lie found in the country than those of our city. They wire highly complimented by one of the spenkrs I Mr. Ellsworth on Friday night, and j merited all he said. Slavery in Delaware. The few returns of the census of 1 860 which we have pub lished, when compared with the census of 1850, exhibit the fact that Slavery contin ues to recede just as the white population in creases and subdivides the land. Slavery is not profitable on small estates, and just us the country becomes populated, slaves are removed to less populated regions. In a few years Delaware will be nominally a Free State, as Pennsylvania and New Jersey ware formauy years. This would have been the case long since were those who owu slaves in Delaware not prohibited by law from sellim them out of the Stati It inlrnrv to law to bring slaves into Delaware Del- aware GatetU. Republicait Jlus Meeting at Boon vllle. On Friday afternoon last, the RepaMltans of Boonville, Warrick county, and vicinity, raised a beautiful Lincoln pole 110 feet high surmounted by a small tri-coiored Union jack, with the lone star, representing Kan sas', in tne corner, and near the top it , streamer bearing the names of Lincoln and Hamlin. This pole is the first one raised iu the township other than Democratic. The county has always been fo overwhelmingly Democratic, that no other party ha3 had any encouragement to make an effort at a deni- , ... , .. .i A:er..--., i .t. - ration, but now the case is dinerem. ( The poe QQ thp side Qf the public squafe ; opposite tbe Browa Hou3e. It is higher by some forty or fifty feet than either of the two Douglas poles on another fide of the square. On Saturday the tjwn was full of people, who came for the purpose of witnessing tbe assembling of the first mass meeting, other than Democratic, ever held iu the place. At half past one o'clock the exercises of the day were commenced by the hoisting ofa fine, large American flag on the pole. Three cheers for Old Abe Lincoln, greeted the un furling of the flag. They were given with a j vim. The Glee Club then sang a song in excellent styie. Dr. Ralston then announced that Mr. E 1 Bischof, of the Volkfbote, would address his , German fellow-citizens, in their own Ian- '. gunge, in the School House, whereupon the (ieriuans present, to the number of about fif tv, went to the said place, where they lis tened to an effective and earnest address, iu j Mr B.'s best style. A fter the above announcement, thecrowd proceeded to the Court House, which was ' soon crowded almost to suffocation. The ' seats were filled, and every vacant space along the aisles on the floor was occupied. ; ! Dr. Ralston introduced Hon. H. W. Ells- worth to the audience. Mr. E. proceeded! in n speech of an hour and a quarter iu length, to hold the audience spell-hound ; with his incontrovertible facts, proved by the I record, and his burning eloquence, carrying j conviction with it. The speech was a mas- I ' terly one, and worthy the logical, massive . mind of the orator. i Alter Mr. E. had concluded, the Glee . Club gave an inspiring song, when Mr. i Ellsworth introduced Hon. Will Gnmfeacfc. This eloquent and enthusiastic young orator addressed the an- ' dience for an hour and a quarter in a man- i n it that demonstrated to the mind of every bearer his thorough arquaiutaucc with his subject, and his wonderful skill in arraying facts and fancies in a striking light before T his auditois. He depicted the evils of I)e- j niocracy aud the beauties of Republicanism M a manner that, struck conviction to maiiv an honest heart. These excellent speeches, delivered with so much effectiveness, to men who had, in;iny of them, never beard anything but unfair and one-sided Democratic speeches, cannot tail to bring nbout the most bene- fit.;rti results. Warrick county has heretofore lieen Eein ocrntic to the core. In lririU Fremont go: out lol voled iu the county ! Fillmore pot 480; Buchanan, 1&06. Wn otuv predict that Old Abe will get not lesi than 500 votes there in I860. Tlie Baby town Convemioii. The attendance nt the Convention of the Doughis faction, at John Uheinlander's Grocery, on Saturduy, was fair, con sidering the hopeless conitiou of the party. It was a matter of considera- ble doubt among some of the delegates l whether any Convention ought to be held at all. We understand that three o' the Townships were flatly opposed to nonii i Dating any regular ticket. But resistance ' was useless. The great Dealer-out of In i struction.5 was on lmnd in full lorce. He thought a Convention ought to be held, and j it was held, lie thought a ticket should j be nominated, aud a ticket was nominated. I On motion of Richard Raleigh a bolter of the ticket in '58 Dr. G. B. Walker, j another bolter, was called to the chair, and I . Wiilard and B, 1". I irkpat rick were Hp pointed Secretaries. Kirk pat rick promptly refused to act, and one Cranmer was ap- pointed in his pla:e ; but he, too, de-lined . ncrvniK-, auu-ar, vrnisru whs ioiccu to uo ;i alone. The following was fixed as the ratio ot representation for each township. Pigeon 24 votes; Knight 4; Center 4: Scott 4 ; Armstrong C; German C; Perry 4; Fnion 3. It was decided, on motion of John S. Gavitt, that a majority of all the votes cast be necetsaryto nominate. The Convention then proceeded to ballot- For Kepresentative -A. T. Whittlesey was nominated, having received 30 votes to 2.-1 for W. II. Walker, Jr. Johu. S. Cavitt, Ira A. Kairchild and B F. Kirkpatrick, were named for the oflice of Sheriff. Mr. Kirkpatrick refused to let his inline go before the Convention. He also gave notice that the delegates trout Gei mau township did not any longer consider them selves as members of that Convention, and would tot consider themselvesbound to sup- port the ticket nominated. Poor Ira Pair child, who has been victimized in some half a dozen Conventions, permitted the use of i his name, and was complimented by receiv I ing the whole of four vutes, the strength of his own, ((.'enter) towuship, while Gav itt received the entire vote of the remaining township . ; Lou'3 Rkbter. mi l&r on been very undecided as to the propriety ol submitting hi3 claims to the Convention was then nominated for Clei k,and Fred Lun kenheimer, who, only a short time previous, stated to several friends, that he would not go before the Convention received the nom ination for Recorder. The great fight was for the office of Treas urer. There were two prominent applicants Wm. Klusman, of this city, and Leroy j speaking, the immense crowd dispersed in Calvert, of Armstrong township. It had : tbe best of humor. We never saw a meet been generally supposed, here, that Klusman ing where the enthusiasm was so intense; would receive the nomination. But it seems where it seemed so impossible for the audi Mr. Gavitt had a onrnose to subserve and' ecce to hear enough. We predict that the like his great exemplar, Stephen A. Dottgla3 be is perfectly regardless of who goe8 down, provided he goes up. Armstrong is the strongest Democratic township in the County; yet, notwithstanding this, Gavitt has almost invariably been beaten in thaj township. Saturday he thought be would consumate a masterly stroke of policy and thereby secure Armstrong township iu the October election, by throwing all his influence for Calvert and against j make previously, when his competitor, Col. Klusman. In order to defeat Klusman, a j Lane) waa present, I had formed a favorable trick was resorted to worthy of the skill of j op;niorj 0f him as a high-minded, geutleman the most expert of thimble-riggers. It was ! ,y debater; but alter hearing him vester- the old way of taking a convenient ace out ; of the boot. Pigeon Township was entitled to cast twenty-four votes. To give those j 24 votes there were 63 delegates. Upon i dividing, it was found there were 55 for Klusman and eight for Calvert: and yet, j when the vote was taken, the fifty-five were : allowed to cist only 1G voles, while the ! eight for Calvert were permitted to give eight votes. Klusman's friends were justly inaigaaaj at this outrage upon their rights, and threatened to make the intriguers who ' bad cheated their friend out of the nomina tion yet feel the weight of their resentment. Dsniel Akin was then nominated for j County Commissioner in the First District, I aud Mr. flogue, the present incumbent, for the Third District. After the nominations, Uayless W. Hanna aud Judge Law, we are told, made a few " incongruvial ' remarks. Wl jiher Judge Law weepingly desired that his bones might be permitted to rest, when he departs this life, in the sacred soil of old Vanderburgh, or not, we did not ascertain. Thus ended another of those farces for which Babytowu is becoming so celebrated. It is hardly necessary for us to state that the whole ticket, witti one exception, was fied up iu this city, days before the meeting of the convention, which sho'ild be termed more properly a ratification meeting. So patent was this fact, that on Saturday moru iug a prominent Democrat took the list of candidates to the Enyiirer office and told the editor it was hardly necessary to await the action of the Convention, as the ticket hud already been selected, and he might as well put it in type and place it at the head of his column. It turned out that the gen tleman's assertions were correct. Carl Schurz at Mozart Hall. Saturday evening it was noised abroad j that Carl Schurz had returned from Mount Vernon, and would address our citizens at Mozart Hal!. The rumor had uot fairly cir- culaled before crowds began to wend their i way iu the direction of the Hall. Rut a i short time elapsed until the large room was filled with an audience, hungering and thirsting for a speech. After the building was compactly tilleJ, the Glee Club " struck up" with one of their inspiring song3, in j the midst of which Mr. Schurz made his appearance. He was greeted with a round j of applause that showed the high estima- tion in which he is held by our people, and j the strong hold the great ; nl.tical doctrines i he teaches has upon their affections. , Mr. Schurz was introduced by Judge lid- ; ker, ami began bv saying that those who , came expecting anything like a lengthy I Speech, would be disappointed. He then took a quotation from one of Mr. Douglns's speeches, as a text, and devoted his atten tion during the greater portion of the even ing exclusively to that gentleman. .. . listened to a great many pohti- We have cai casugauoiis, out never in oui iiie nave we ever witnessed so complete an estin- t pnishment of a political adversary as was the case of Mr. DonglM at the hands of Carl j " , Scbnf. Calm and dispassionate, the speak- er almost seemed to take hold of the Little ! Giant aud whittle him to pieces in the pres- ence of the audience, who, by their shouts and cheers, evidently did not sympathize in the sufferings of the victim. The friends and ndherauts of Mr. Douglas also received a portion of the orator's attention, and the deg. . iation of their position was portrayed in such glowing colors as to almost excite the pity of tbe hearers. It will be a long time before our people will have an opportunity of listening to such a political address again. We do not believe there was a single man in the Hall who did not leaving it thanking Mr. Schur in his heart for the evening's entertainment. Could Mr. Schurz spare the time to make several speeches in our district, we feel sure that Judge Law could never go to Congress. We believe the mass of the people are hcu est, and could they have Mr. Douglas's po sitions and changes placed before them as Carl Schurz can do it. they would drop the " tear-shedding'' old gentleman iu haste. After Mr. Schurz finished his speech, the audience, which was wrought up to the highest pitch of excitement, called for a song, which the Glee Club complied with. Loud cries were then made for Cbanuler, who arose and informed them that he chose ' his own time for making speeches, and that they couldn't fool him by having him at- lempt a speech after the address to which they had been listening. Judge Baker was then called, who told a humorous anecdote, and informed the crowd that he, too, was no, going to commit the indiscretion of mak ing a speech after the one they had just heard. Finding it impossible to have any more Douglas Democracy will hear the echo of Carl Schurz's speech rumbling all through the remainder of the campaign. Letter From PoseyvilIe.9Ir. Hen ilrirk' Speech. Poseyville, Ind., Aug. 15, l8C0. Editors Joi-rxal: Two hundred and four leen men and boys assembled here yester day, to listen to an address by T. A. Hes dricks, Democratic candidate for Governor. From a speech which I had heard him day, I saw that his apparent fairness was j not the spontaneous effusion of nn honest nature, but assumed because seated behind him wns his competitor a man capable of j stripping his arguments of all sophistry and exposing their deformity, flence his appa rent honesty and fairness upou that occasion, i But on yesterday there was no one to reply to him or expose his falsehoods, and conse- I qoeDtij he indulged in a system of misrep- I lesenUtion which would have been dis- j graceful to the lowest demagogue, much more lor a candidate lor the blgB position of Gov ernor of the State of Indiana. He commenced by showing the immense increase of wealth iu this State within the lust fourteeu years, all of which was to go I to the credit of tbe Democratic party. The j industry, enterprise, and economy of our I people has contributed nothing to the in crease of property. It i.j all owing to the I rule of the Democratic party! The facts in the case are, that party rendered us bankrupt iu :i3 and -i0, and but for a fer j tile soil, the industry aud energy of our j people, and the l.-ounty of God Almighty, ! we to-day would be, under Democratic rule, I a bankrupt common wealth. We have every , natural advantage which a hcaveu-fai ored ! people could wish, and but for the clog of j Democratic mis-rule and robbery, we to-day I would stand far in advance of the position we now occupy. Mr, Hendricks charges the Republican party with corruption, because, he says, Hi nun E.' Talbott swindled tbe State out of herswamp lands which accusation he failed I to substantiate). Rut the charge of corrup- j tion comes with bad grace from a party, i which, as I'rentice wouid say, is as boyster- I ous as the ocean, as uustable as tho wind, I and corrupt as the devil. U here is their Paris C. Dunning, of Georgia land notor iety'.' Where their Bresliu, their Sew York or New Orleans Postmasters ? Where the swindlers, expnsed by the Covode investiga tions 1 Where is the ten thousand dollars. that Weinli ll carried for weeks in his peck et, with the privilege of making it twenty i thousand or a Foreign Mission, and for what purpose? Because the phenomenon had ap- ! peared an honest Democrat had been found im Forney, a-jd he must be corrupted (bought). But suppose this charge against j If. K. Talbott & Co. be true by whom I was he elected V Not by Republicans, for j that was before their day ; but by another party, and hence the Republican party ure uot responsible for their acts. And I will reruiud Mr. Hendricks that Talbott is a Dem- ocrat again. He was never anything else, j except for office. Rut his holding the Republican party respon- j Bible for the corruptions and robbery oi the present administration exceeded iu impu- deuce anything 1 ever heard. It was tool uusurti to merit serious notice. I can l blame him, however. I should dread to shoulder the responsibility of defending such corruption, i might, with the same propriety, however, with which the Demo crats make this charge, run my hand into your pockets ana steal :oo dollars, and tunl Toun( lxm awear that you had robbed me. AKuin : IIe t','larSts "e Republican party with being opposeu to the Homestead Bill, Senator Hamlin'wilh voting to defeat it I onlv two weeks before he was nominated at f'li i imi at i unll ui'l'ilSfQ too ii-irlv wilii trmza T ,J 1 J B" inconsistency in putting a man on me ticket for President who was .n favor of the Home stead Bill, and a Vice-President opposed to it. This charge looks well, coming Irom a nartv whose candidate for President, if not . - ,, , , c,,,..,.-,,,,' L t.. acknowledged champion, while for Vic President they take a mau of the most ultra Slave-Code mud-sill doctrine. Beautiful con- th,is ! iu? wor'1 ltn s record on tbe Homestead JJili. By ex- liminil,ion you jtj flad tijat on jj occa. sions he not only voted for but spoke in favor of it; and after a Republican House, withairreat decree of liberality, had Dassed a bill providing free homes for the poor: man ami nfler a Democr I ir Senate hail man, ana alter a democratic senate UaU , emasculated the bill, and a Democratic r, . . i. . j . .1 : . I - . . i rreMiieni una veioea it, wuen u whs pro- i posed to pass it over the v-to, Senator I Hamlin voted in the affirmative. How does j Senator Douglas vote ? He dodges as usual j or don't vote at all. Mr. Hendricks says Mr. Hamlin is not fit 1 to become Vice-President, because he is an Eastern man he has nerer been West 1 never so much as stood on the Allegheny Mountains and cast bi3 eyes over the beau tiful and fertile West. Hence ho is not fit ! to be Vice President of these United States. Here I might with propriety say that I think it would have been decidedly better for the ! people of Indiana if a certain gentleman who aspires to be Governor ot Indiana had never been as far West a3 the Allegbenies. i There are various other charges which I would like to refer to, such as that Lincoln entertained the doctrine that a man who was uot an abolitionist was a child of hell ; : and that Joshua R. Giddings was the au thor and leader of the Republican party ; Republicans refusing to admit free States, i and a variety of other points : but I have already made this communicH.ion too long for the present. Therefore, 1 dismiss the Subject. POSEYVILLE. The hreckenridge men in Missouri are taking active steps for organizing their party in that State for the Presidential campaign. Advent of the Mosquito. Again the gaunt mosquito comes, That brigand of the night, W ith all his starving family. To put my dreams to flight, Aud try and settls his small bill. Ami take a draft at sight ! I hear agaiu the dreadful sour,,! That tells me who is nesr ; I hear him wind his horrid horo. wuet uis poisoned spear ; He sounds the hattle-blast, and ah ' I feel that be is here I heat the air, I seem to waga With Sends an idle fend ; My hopes, like poor Ophelia's, Are blasted in the bud ; I'm vanquished in a single rouud. And he obtains " hrst blood I " i In vain the rank cigar I smoke. Quite wild aud desperate grown, I try in vain to drive him ont, And shut the window down ; 1 or still 1 hear those tranquil pipes Monotonously droue ! Like Cook among the cannibals, 'Tis useless to appeal, Or like a mummy wind myself Id sheet! from head to heel ; The hungry wretch has picked me oul To make himself a meal ! His sucker, like n burglar's drill, Would piertie an iron door ; He loves, as Alexander did. To wado iu human gore ; Like Everett, he's always dry ; Like Cobb, a perfect bore ! Bin yet his faults may not suffice All merits to efface, For sinner uover yet was boru Without some spark of grace ; Hif failing is philanthropy He loves the human race ' He comes by night, as angels do, To chant his soothing hymn ; lie hovereth o'er the baby's couch , Just like the cherubim ; By day he wadeth in the swamp, ilis legs are long and slim. Oh ! bear me to some frozen waato. Where polar tempests blow ; On train oil 1 will gaze unmoved, Or Greenland's clifls of snow. And lie content to pass my days Among the Esquimaux I Douglas Meeting. We are told that there was a liule Democratic " pow-wow " at the Court House, on Saturday night, at which two or three overburdened Democrats delivered themselves of their load of per sonal abuse. Our worthy Sheriff who is daily growing more and more desperate, as the fact that the Sheriff's office is slipping out of his hands develope3 itself " pitched in." in a manner truly cantankerous. Four or five Republicans who were standing in the door, amusing themselves in wit nessing the performances among whom Mr. Royston occupied a place, were de nounced in the Sheriffs chaste and classic language in most unsparing terms. We believe they still survive the attack, and are in a fair way to recover, at was necessary, these gentlemen tell us, that Mr. Gavitt who had been informed that day by several prominent democrats that they would uot support him for Sheriff should have sunt person on whom to vent his spleen, and they presumed they were ns able to bear it as any others. We were also told that a man from Terre Haute, Bayless W. Hanna by name, made a speech ; and a young Rhanklin, who isn't yet fairly ont of the shell, attempted to il- I luminate the political darkness that broods j over the Douglasites. HEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
