standpoint, but when it is remembered

candidate for president, it gains in im

We take the following account of the
sinking of the towboat Resolute and
barze of era vel, from the Argus : "Last
night at eleven o'clock the towboat Reso

of gravel and stone Irom Memphis, landed
at the box factory, ine lanamg was
scarcely made when the watchman called

moments it went down, in uoing so u
dashed against the side of the Resolute and
stove a hole in her hull from which she
sunk quickly. She lies on her larboard
side, and so completely tipped over that
the edge of the hull on the starboard side
is out. She is insured for
$3,500 with Louis Shald-
cross' agency, in Louisville. The stories
concerning the disaster are all substantially
the same, but one feature related by some
who saw it is entirely new and hard to be
lieve. They say that after the barge went
down she blew up, sending a blew flame
high in the air. This they suppose to be
the effect of air confined in the hull be-
neata the heavy gravel and the incoming
water. Diver Hiram Hill will no doubt be
or jered to the wreck by Mr. Shallcross to-
dav, with the wrecking boat Charley nill.

Stephen A. Douglas has two sons.
Onn of them was lately in this city and
talked klu-klux and waved thcjbloody shirt
from the Tenth stxeet music stand, in the
most silly and disgusting manner. Shortly
after his arrival here he became intoxicated
and, at one of our saloons, surrounded by
prominent Republicans, proposed some of
tue mtniest toasu ui n puwm: r iue
human mind to conceive. In fact we doubt
whether it is possible for any other
mind, however corrupt, to frame words
which would at all comparo with the nasty
utterances of this champion of Republican
ism. He was drunk when he made his
harangue and after having finished it im

it before him. Douglas raised it to his
mouth and drank the entire contents
without saying a word. This alone
stamped him as a hog, but
from here, in eompany with a few chums,
he visited the haunts ot wickedness and
dens of crime which disgraces the lower
portion of our city. la one ot these he
stayed during the night, paying twenty-five
dollars for the privilege, and missed the

Douglas brothers. The other is un-

The Bentoa Standard has the follow-
in? to sav concerning the treatment our
CDlored people have receive at tho hands of
our white Republicans: Why, when Cul
lum so loves the negro does his party iu
this state steadily refuse to let the negroes
have any of the offices; at Cairo, when thv
Rcpublicsa convention met, the negroes de
manded recognition, and were insultingly
refused, yet the negro vote alono gives that
district its republican majority. Capt.
Thcrftaswas elected by the negro vote.
There is 1,000 Democratic majority in the
ISth district, if tho negro vote is excluded,
and if the negroes go Democratic tho ma
jority would lead up to 4,000 for the demo
cratic ticket, x et the negroes were post
tively told that they should not have office,
They must be content to elect their white
Radical misters. This is not bulldozin

W!w done by the Democratic party ot tue
8oUtu a shiver of horror would pass through
the breast of every office holder in the
n0rtii. The theory of tho Republicans seems
i,n flit liita-inn a-Mm ll,,miirr'itn and
whito Republicans aud negroes the white
should rule. Good pious logic truly.
Tho attempts of dishonest men and
their dupes to besmear the name of Jno.
H. Oberly, rebound with destructive forco
upou tho calumniatiors. However
much these would-ba public teachers
have racked their brains and pried into
tho records, both public and private, to
discover, if possible, a single thread out of
which to weavo a net for his capture, or
to disclo30 tho smallest pebble upon which
to rest charges in any degree prejudicial
to his good name, they have so far met
only with the bitterest disappointment.
Whenever they fancied themselves firmly
planted upon truth, their foundation
has beon suddenly knocked from" under
them, leaving them flat upon their backs,
in the midst of the miry pool of their own
creation, into which they sought to drag
tho unsullied name of Mr, Oberly. Theso
men must have learned by this time that
their efforts are fruitless and that our can
didate for secretary of state is invulnerable.
The "statements" we published iu Sun
day's Issue cleared him of tho charge which
had been mado and reiterated with great
pomp in many parts of the state and whieh
was made with such assumed gravity and
such an air of confidence and
self-satisfaction that persons who did not
know better believed the charge true. But
the people in general will not allow them
selves to bo deceived even by tho faultless
mask of the hired calumniator. They are
too well acquainted with the labors and
record ot Mr. Oberly to bo influenced by
anything prejudicial to him that may be
Hancock's letter of accept
ance, published in Sunday's issue of
The Bulletin, will give the Re
publican organs a good deal of worry. It
placates no disgruntled factions as Gar
field's did, because there are no dis
gruntled Democrats aud, besides, Hancock
isn't that kind of a man, His letter is
characteristic of him ; it is frank and with
out the suspicion of double dealing. He
accepts the platform which the Cincinnati
convention placed before the American
people as the creed of the Democratic
party. Throughout the letter there runs a
lofty, national spirit that will thrill the
country. In the words "the time lias come
to enjoy the substantial results of
reconciliation" is to be found the key
note of the campaign. The Republican
party has sought, nad still seeks, by
every means in its power, to awaken the
slumbering passions of the civil war. Gen.
Hancock emphatically and eloquently says
that, in order to enjoy the full measure of
the prosperity which circumstances con
spire to give us, we must put behind us
the animositic-3 bora of civil strite and seek
to build up American interests at home
and abroad. . That is the law and the gos
pel of American progress. General Han
cock's splendid war record is an ample
guarantee of his sincerity when he declares
his intention, as Chief -Magistrate, to main
tain the integrity of the Union iuviolate.
The declaration ia favor of a free ballot is
dignified, but positive. The importance of
of the maintenance of State rights to the
integrity of the Union is set
forth so plainly t'.iat the
dullest cannot fail to Understand. It is
hardly to be supposed that the most in
sensate Republican will dare to make him
self ridiculous by attempting to identifyGen.
Hancock with the revival of the dead doc
trine of secession. It is high time that the
fundamental principles of the government
should once more bear their rightful sway.
It is high time that the Republican party,
made reckless by too long a lease of power,
should be driven into opposition. It is
high time a man, above suspicion, should
be seated, by an overwhelming majority
ia the presidential chair. Evidently, the
hour and the man have come.
A FALsE RUMOR CORRECTED.
As it is generally known, tor the past
eighteen months, a colored man, named A.
G. Leonard, has been an employe of Toe
Bulletin office. He was given employ
ment by Mr. Burnett, the publisher, solely
because he was reccommendod as a compe
tent workman and entirely regardless of
his color or the political opinions he enter
tained. Mr. Leonard proved all and more
than was expected and being accommodat
ing and a g'.-ntleman in his deportment,
gave entire satisfaction and enjoyed the
esteem of his employer and all the men
with whom lie came in contact.
On Saturday night last, a misunder
standing occured between Mr. Leonard
and the foreman of tho newsroom, under
whom he worked, which resulted in Mr.
Leonard, of his owa accoru, quitting
tho office. No sooner had he done
so than tho report was circu
latcd that "the colored man who worked in
Tue Bulletin office had been discharged
for being a Republican." Mr. Leonard
denied tho truthfulluess of the report in
the clearest of terms but Radical
tongues continued to spread it with so
much more induitry, entirely disregarding
his statement to the contrary, in order to
"fire tho negro heart" and make politica
capital out of it.
Mr. Leonard being too intelligent am:
honest aniautocouatenancesuch perversion
has written tho following statement in or
dor that tho public may bo informed of
tho truth :
Cvtito, Ills., August 3d, 1880.
Dear Sin As thero seems to be a rumor
afloat that I havo been discharged from
service in your office, in justico to you and
the publisher, Mr. Burnett, I only wish to
saj that I w.i not discharged from service
by any one, but quit of my own accord.
Since I first entered The Bulletin office
I havo been treated by those in authority
with tho utmost respect. I havo nothing
whatever to say against the establishment
at this time. On the entrance of a great
political campaign wo are too willing to
misconstrua rumors. Tho difficulty which
arose last Saturday was, as I am willing to
term it, purela personal matter between
myself and tho foreman of the newsroom
and I do not wish to incur the til- feelings
of my former employer, whom I deem in
every respect a gentleman, and I can say
tho same of the editor, Mr. Thielecke. I
was hired on' account of my
ability as a workman, not for a
political purpose, that is, I have
never been so informed. I desire the re
spect of the aboro named gentlemeu,
Now,I hope all who have been misinformed
on this point will please read and pay no
attention to what any gossiper may say in
the future about this matter, for I will at-
ways nold myseii reauy to couiniuict it
over my signature.
Yours, A. G. Leonard.
A FEW FITTING WORDS
CONCERNING oun next president's LET1ER
The American people are happy and rejoice
in their heart of hearts to read the letters of
acceptance of Hancock and English. The
ringing tones ot the able documents come
like a tidal wave; yea,likc an overwhelming
deluge, or a ruthless avalanche, upou the
Republican party. It has hurled their an
ticipated prospects of mis-rule and pleasure
into an irretrievable whirlpool of destruc
tion. It rings out the glad news, in sweet
symphomous sounds, to the American peo-
; pie, and to the civilized world, that they
: shall once again enjoy their untrammelled
rights under the constitution of
i the United States of America as
! our fathers gave it to us,
: together with all lawful amendments.
That the thirteenth, fourteeoth.and fifteenth
amendments are inviolable and that tho
stars and stripes, the flag of our country,
shall be respected on the high seas, and in
There is nothing left for the Democrats
to do but to march on with the God-given
banner of victory unfurled to the breeze,
crviug glory, glory, wane tue gates ot
heaven, stand ajar, and the departed
spirits of Washington, Calhoun, Webster,
Jackson, Clay, Lincoln, Sumner and
Greeley, look over the battlements ot the
eternal throne, and watch the pure and
noble Hancock float like a sea of glory into
the presidential chair, before the en
chanted view of millions of beholders.
