thing to bo decidod Is, shall we have parly
nominations or shall the race be of tbo
kind denominated "scrub?" Tbo ticket
suggested is Democratic, and in a party
race might be defeated. Aloxandercounty
is Radical, and if the parly line
were strictly drawn would return
Radicals to all tbe office ; but wo believe
there Is no disposition on the part of tbe
Radical leader to make this lnue. If
they determined to do 10, they would find
tbotnielves In a bad fix in a dilemma
of the most embarraslng description.
They would bo compelled to give a colured
man a place on the ticket or lose many
colored vote, and if they did give a place
to a colored roan tbey would Iota many
white votes. Black Radicals will vote for
white Radicals, but white Radical won't

Both tbe Ohio and Mississippi rivers
are rls'ng again. The Ohio, during the
twenty four hours ending at 6 o'clock last
evening, had risen five inches, and is still
rising. Tbli, howover, cannot bo of long
duration, as the low water season is ast
approaching. The Mississippi Is also
'creeping up her bank, though not at a
very rapid rate. Thit rise, like that In the
Ohio, will also toon have to give way,
Yesterday the weather was extrcmly
warm probably one of tbe warmest day
of the season. Tho msreury averaged 89"
throughout the day.
Business wa apparently a little better
than it ha been for tome time past. How
over, it wat not to lay good ; and we need
not anticipate to tee much business trans
acted before tbo fall trade commence.
