About two weeks ago a negro named

Admiral Nicholson, who directs the
movements of the American fleet iu front
of Alexandria, is evidently a very numerous
gentleman. A limited navy will go a long
way with a few admirals liko that inter
spersed in it. Tho last news before tho
boinbHidiueut comprised the announcement
that the admiral had notified tho Kgvptians
that they'd better not shoot at him, else
he'd shoot back. Iu thu first dispatches
alter the bombardment tho admiral looms
up again as gracefully sailing round the
glim old Riitish thunderers aud giving
them three cheers and a tiger. If there
are any tleets iu that part of the Mediter
iauean except the American and English,
they must be very insignificant.
All the row and racket; all tho dis
graceful scenes; all the discord and con
fusion, at tho Opera House, were occasioned
because of tho colleetoiship, held by Capt.
Willis, and the Cairo post office, held by
Col. McKeaig, helped along by a few howls
and screams of the post officers and would
be officers of the smaller towns. The mat
ter of principle influenced nobody. It -was
not Dainrou, nor Young, nor Smith, nor
Fountain, who raised the row. Intellec
tually they are all light weights and do
not average much above Congressman
Thomas. The delegates would not have
paid tho Cairo hotel bills for any of the
candidates. Tho squabble was all oc
casioned by those who hold tho fat federal
offices, and by those who want them.
A number of our exchanges are hint
ing that Mr. Dowdall, editor of the Peoria
Democrat, would be the proper person for
Democratic nominee for state treasurer
of Illinois, and Col. Dowdall seetm to
he of the same opinion, for
he republishes in the Democrat, without
comment, the suggestion! of the exchanges
aforesaid. In view of the colonel's silence
it is safe to assume that he would not scorn
fully refuse to accept tho honor saiight to
bo conferred upon b'no by some of his Dem
ocratic friends, and hence a consideration of
his qualifications for tin; position m ques

would not be "sweetness wasted on tho

Here is another instance of practical
Republican, negro equality. The Metropo

through Henry Tinsley's being on the petit

having been reached at supper time, it, of
course, became necessaty for the jury to bi

of the law, when tho jury were taken to

bout an hour afterwards other parties who
came along the same route, found the man
lying near the road and his horse on top of
him. They drew Jones out from under the
horse and found him to a'l appearances
lead. They laid him out safely and went
alter the coroner, who arrived not long
after with the necessary jury, but to tho
surprise of the party the man showed si;m
of life and a little working with him
brought him to all right. Tho supposition
that the horse, being tired,
laid down and the drunken rider on his
back fell under him and was unable to ex
tricate himself. Mr. Jones certainly bad a
very close call.
Not long sinco seven of the United
States prisoners from Texas who pasxd
through here for the Chester penitentiary
secretly coucocted a plan ol escape fioin
the prison, in which a number of Other men
were to participate. "Tho break was to
have been made Saturday evening as the
men were being marched in fnnu
work," says the Chester Tribune.
"Tho keepers were to bo knocked down and
their arms taken from them, and tho rush
for liberty was thou to be made, with tho
expectation that others would join in the
revolt. Their plans becoming known to tho
officers the men were ordered to the deputy
w arden's ollice, where heavy chains were
unceremoniously placed on each ol them.
They affected great surprise and asked why
such punishment was inflicted. TJiey were
told that it was better than to inflict moie
severe punishment it tho contemplated at
tempt to cscapa was made. The leaders of
tho conspiracy will doubtless remain nian
acled while inmates of the prison, as they
are bold, desperate men."
-There is no truth in the reports that the
parquette in tho Opera House, wh -ro the
late Republican convention sat, was very
much damaged by the boister'mus behavior
of the delegates. It was said that about
fifteen ot the faucy folding chairs were
broken, mouldings defaced and carpets in
the dress circle and aisles badly soiled.
This is not all true. No chairs are broken
the mouldings are uot defaced, carpets not
much soiled iu short, the Opera House is no
more damaged than it would have been had
a good theatrical troupe bob' forth in it for
two nights. Those, therefore, who feared
and predicted that the Opera House man
agement had resolved never to permit an
other political convention to inoet in their
alegunt building, ami that the Democratic
congressional convention, if it met here,
would have to be content w ith the use of the
court house or avuio other villainous look -
ing place, may rest easy and retract.
- Speaking of thosttempt on the part of
the chairman of the late Republican con
gressional convention in this city to enforce
the unit rule with regard only to the John
son county delegation, the Chicago Trib
une agrees with Tim liui.LiCTiN, and says
editorially: "There can bo no question
Hint the action of the chairman in denying
to the six Johnson county delegates the
right to Vote on a question of organization
as they saw tit was a rank usurpation of
power. The ilelegates were instructed, it
was claimed, to vote as a unit for Dam
ion, lint this instruction did not extend
to the preliminary votes on organization,
and even if it bad so extended it could not
be the duly of the temporary chairman to
enforce it. Tho Chicago national conven
tion decided laice for all that it is not the
duty or right of R 'publican conventions to
recognize or give effect to the instructions of
primary bodies. If county or state con
ventions wish to impose instruction upon
delegates appointed by them, within the
limit of their power, they may do so; but if
these instructions aru violated, they have no
remedy except against tho individual. To
(insert the contrary principle is to deny free
agency to tho delegates, The only way to
havo instructions obeyed is to select men
who will voluntarily bo bound by them."
The committee of ten gentlemen, ap
pointed by Mayor Thistlewood, in accord
ance with a resolution passed by the city
council at thu recommendation of the
street committee to investigate tho ac
cumulated water problem, made an impor
tant step in tho right direction last Sunday
Accompanied by Mr. L. Pine, of tho Singer
works, tho committee boardod one of
Messrs. Hallidays' tugs nnd made a trip of
injunction around this city and to Mound
City. In their trip around tho city the
goutlemeu observed closely what could bo
seen of the soil along tho river banks, and
Captain IJalliday who is, perhaps, as thor
oughlf acquainted with tho formation of
the land upon which this city stands as
any man living, called tho attention of the
cominitteo to every peculiarity of tlio Cairo
bank on the Mississippi side and explained
his theory of prevctiti, i g sipeago into the
city m I'.o future. The ir p to Mound City
was for the purpose of nxvuining into the
merits of (h i Kipn w it r pump recently
bought and put up by t!i a town. Tho re
sult of these invi sii''a'ioiis was the an-
poiiitmeiit of a sub eoiiiindtee, consisting of
Major 15. W. Hdliday and Mr. L. Vine, to
make inquiries, during a voluntary trip to
Chicago which they had decided upon
making for business of their own, as to the
cost and possible accomplishments of steam
pumps, ami other matters pertaining to tho
subject under consideration. As a first step
of the committee this is a very long and an
important one; and the next and subsequent
steps it may be safely expected will be
On tho Uuh inst, one Geo. W. Green,
living up town, lost a revolver and a geld
watch and chain worth about ninety dol
lars together, which w.-re stolen from his
house during the night. The case wns
given into the bauds of thu officers, who
worked on it diligently, but fruitlessly,
until yesterday, w hen the chain was seen
by Officers Martin ami Mahantiy, in posses

baker, who admitted that ho Bold the chain
to the man upon whom it was found, but
1'i'fmed to tell from whom ho himself ob
tained the chain. He would not, he said,
tell from whom lie got tho chain if he
were offered a linnilii d dollais. lbs ad
milled, liowiver, that the person fioin
whom he bought, the chain said that it was

WHAT HE HAS DONE.
R 'publicans know Congressman Thomas
better than the Democrats know him. The
Carbondale Free Press is an orthodox Re
publican newspaper, and from its issue of
the btii inst. we copy the following:
"Why have we opposed Capt. Thomas!
because" he has been weighed and found
wanting; because be ha- been guilty of
treachery; because he has been gui'.ty of
falsehood; because he has thrown insult
into the faces ot good working Republi
cans; because he is unpopular and cannot
be elected. Good arid sufficient reasons,
And from the same paper of the same

THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND CAIRO.
There is no city so much interested iu
the improvement of the Mississippi river as
Cairo. Thu successful application of tho
system, popularly known as thu "Eads jetty
system" to thu Mississippi river from Cairo
to New Orleans, will make Cairo practical
ly a seaport, vessels will loan to our
wharf for Liverpool nnd tho ports of con

warehouses, and Cairo will become the
great interior grain emporium uf tho west.
Population will follow where commerce
loads, and the long anticipated growth of
Cairo will bo a reality. Tho , Mississippi,
wilU its deepened channel, will become,
what John 0. Calhoun called it iu a speech
at Memphis thirty-eight years ago, iu
truth an "inland sun." It will become
part of the great commercial "high way of
Tho improvement ot the Mississippi river
is only possible by means of money given
by congress. Tho money is given in
the form of 'an appropriation in what is
called the "River and Harbor Rill." The
river aud harbor bills are usually passed
through congress by Democratic votes aided
by a lew Republicans. When our last
Democratic representative, Hon. William
Rartzell, was in congress, he twice voted in
favor of a river and harbor bill. Our pres
ent Republican representative in congress
has twice had a chance to vote tor a river
and harbor bill, and be has both times
failed to vote for it; and once voted against
it. With these facts before tho voters of
Cairo.it will be natural for them to con
clude that it is best for thu interests of
Cairo that this congressional district should
be represented by a Democrat. Extreme
partisans of the Republican party aud the
offiee-hohLrs and their dependents aud re
tativej may think differeutly ; but all other
citizens of Cairo will, we believe, feel it to
their duty at tho next election to support a
