Mark you, gentle reader, that, In notic
ing tho advent of young Mr. Sheldon into
this breathing world, we wrote: "Sheldon
rejoices in the possession of a baby, a big
baby, a baby whose srx warrants It in be
ing called aftor Its fulhor, James, If James
is so inclined," and would youbellcvolt?
that stupid printer transformed the
word "sex" Into tho figures "21, 'und
made the blunder superlatively unnoying
by putting after th. figures the word
"pounds' a 21 pound baby I Good
heavens) We shrink uppulled, and dread
tho speedy appearance of lUrnum in
search of the young giant. Already the ten
der grass is beginning to take root on that
printer's grave. To Sheldon and tho
mother bo this our explanation and this
our apology.
Tho Vienna' Artery man, after his
lato visit to Cairo, wrote as follows:
" Another thing wo speak of, for the es
pecial pral-e of the city, I., that during our
stay of nearly three days, we did not hear
an oath, we didn't see a drunken man, ami we
heard no brawls or Interruptions of any
kind; it appeared to be ju-t as civil a place
as we ever tMtcd It Southern Illinois, or in
deed, in any other locality.
Wo thank tho ' Artery' for this frank
acknowledgment of tho Influence, of The
Bulletin in Cairo. Wo have never re
ceived a compliment beforo that guvo us
so much pleasure. It fills our heart with
joy. The Bulletin found Cairo in a de-
plorablo state, given to the wine cup,
oaths, brawls and other shortcomings,
hut in a few years, by noble teachings by
Importunato advocacy of anti-drunkenness,
anti-cursing, unti-fighting, and so
forth, has mado the c'.ty to blossom as tho
rose with tho moral virtuos. The ' Ar
tery has acknowledged this fact, and wo
are happy.

W. T. Scott, tho negro hotel-keeper
a really sharp and money-getting fellow,
and Pope's right-hand man in politics,
contributes tho following to our columns:
Eoitoii of The Bulletin:
Silt: Pardon ine for taking the liberty
of answering an article that appeared In thi;
columns of The Bulletin ol the lth ; and
I hope you will have the courage to publi-h'
It, and not do us thu editor of the '.Sun,' Mr.
Dav Is, refti'C to publish articles as they aro
written liom the hands of colored men.
Why Mr. Davis will not defend the rights of
a colored voter norullowthe same to bo pub
lished in his paper, the colored men cannot
understand. 1 see letters answering from
the hands of (ireelcy men in his sheet, and If
the 'sun' Is atireeley paper I would like him
to come out and let us know, ami we will
know what to depend on, lor thero ain't any
middle ground, lie imi-t boa republican or
n democrat. Come out, 'Sun.' You have
been In the dark long enough,
I Hud in The Bulletin of the 10th,
charges against Grant negroes, and Bird.
Oladuey and Scott In particular. You stated
that the Grant negroes are determined to
drive out of the city by pressure of social o-
traeism. if not by v iolence, any negro who
shall advocate the cause of Greeley and
Brown. We do not want to use any violence
and no word of that kind lias ever como
from the lips of any one that has addressed
the club; but if words or argument can
change tne niinu oi a ureeiey man i,ioronc
will bo found In every county, towuslrip am
precinct in the 18th district, Using both In
the Interest of Grant and llson.
You also stated thut the negroes were led
bv l'opc, Munn and Llncgar. and that Scott,
Bird und Oladuey were paid by them to be
come their tools. If wo arc led by them, we
couiu not im icu ny inree better men, nor by
three men who have taken more interest In
the black man than them, in tills community.
If these men were not worthy you would
not see a single colored man being led by
them: and, If you think that they would, let
one of them Join your Greeley band and see
how quick they will let loose u they did
Greeley und Charles Sumner. No man can
lead and vote tho colored vote
of Cairo unless he Is right,
and as long us these men advocate the prin
ciples they tlo now we aro with them, and

are truly for them I hope that we will use

V. T. Scott.
Scott is ono of thoso negroos who know
which side of their bread is buttered, und
he knows ho can draw consolation from
Munn's coffer through it gentleman who
shall be nameless, und ho intends to do so.
Scott knows that his darkleu huvo beon
indulging in throats, und thut ho would
not have condemned them If they had car
ried them out. Wo have heard mcmbors
of his club declare on the street in loud
tones of voico that thoy would not only
tuko off Rev. Mr. Shores whito hat but
also his d d old head, and thut Poto Con
way, ono of tho negroes such men as
Scott and Oladney und Munn use to do
their dirty work, mudu an incendiary
speech in tho Grunt and Wilson club no
body will deny. Wo are glad to learn,
through Scott, that Munn lias abandoned
the pulley of kuklux Intimidation. To
havo attemptod its execution would havo
proved unhealthy.

Tho Democratic-Republican pcoplo of
Mound City a lively body of cothusiasllc
mon ratified tho second nomination of
Grcoloy, on Saturday night last by a rous
ing Impromptu meeting. In tho after
noon they raised n splendid Grcoloy pole,
and throw to the breczo a splendid Groc
loy flag polo and flag, both, having been
procured and paid for by Frank Fair, who
has been ono of tho leading Republicans
of our sister city.
At night, a meeting was organized at
tho depot by calling Mr. Fair to tho chair.
In rcsponso then to loud calls Judgo W.
J. Allen, of this city, oddrcsscd tho large
crowd in ono of his most telling speeches.
He surpassed himself, and proved to tho
satisfaction of hit friends thut tho Greeley
harness fits hit political back to a T.
The Judge's argument was frequently in
terrupted by applause.
After Judgo Allen camo Mr. J. II.
Oborly, of The Bulletin, tho particular
and tho only distinguishing merit of
whole speech was Hi brovlty.
Then Col, Lowo went Into matters in
hit peculiarly uniquo and forciblo manner,
and toro tho Grant pirty in it ferocious
manner. Tho Colonel hat, Indeed, been
baptisod into the Liberal church, and of
ull lis mmbert is tho most enthusiastic.
He ttrlkct from tho shoulder, nnd strikes
heavy bluws.
(.'apt. Humb!cton next appeared upon
the piatlorm (of tho car), and for u few
moments entertained his hcurers with one
of his plain, frcible, earnest and con
vincing " talkt." Tho Captain is no ora
tor as Brutut is, but hit tulkt uro very
effective, nnd do fur mom good than the
ranting utterances prcculiar to tho ttump.
If Captain llumbicton should consent to
become thu Democratic and Liberal can
didate fur senator in hit district, and will
canvais for the position, we have no
duubt he can be elected by a good majority.
All the Democrats and Liberal, and all
the "fair toting Rado," (as Dr. Casey
would put it) of the district would feel
constrained by a tense of duty and by thu
promptings of good fellowship to voto
for him.
Dr. Cmey followed with the important
assertion that Mound City, in the matter
of polo raising, wus ahead of any city on
tho river, and would s:a ahead until after
election. " We shall carry Mound City
for the honest old man of tbo little old
hat, " tnid the Doctor, " and, fellow
citizen" (rising on his tiptoes, with
flashing eye, extended right arm and
thundering voice) "as goes Mound City
to goes the United States 1"
Of course thit ended tho Doctor's few
remarks, and Col. Watkint responded
to a call that wouldn't havo " No " for on
answer. Ho agreed with Casey's remark
about the importance of carrying Mound
City to that the Union might be secured
to Greeley, and piedicted succest. "We
can't be defeated, ' he said ; ' wo have put
up a pole to-day that the Radicals can't
climb, and every attempt they make will
expoto thoir folly."
Then Fair in brief, and with cheers
tho meeting adjourned.
