Tho defeated cnndldntcs demeaned them
selves yestorduy ns It wni expected thoy
would do. Wo saw nono of tliem counsel
ing with radical sore-head combers; heard
none of them predicting defeat for4 tho tick
et, nor giving vent to any personal indigna
tion or noroncw over tho result. On tho con
trary, wo hcurd from them tho expression of
a determination to support and work for tho
whohKlckot, without erasing a name. Wo
hoard them combatting the iiMaults of radi
cal! and bolter upon tho nominuM, and do
fending tho fairness and precision of the pri
mary election. Thoy wero surprised ut tho
result In some particulars, but with that sur
prise time wu. no admixture of anger or ro
Hontment. Mr. .John V. Holy, who'c claims to u candi
dacy for the city clerkship his fellow demo
orntsjailed to endorse, submit like tho true
and faithful democrat that he is, and avows
liiiimlf in favor of thu tlckot, tho whole tick
et and nothing hut tho ticket. Despising
belt r: and the tricky radicals who aro using
them, ho propose to lay oil' his coat, roll up
Ills sleeves, and to enter tho light against
them with n warmth and vigor cooled not in
tho lea"t 1 y the decision of hi fellow-domo-T.its

Our levee onntonlporury, speaking' of the
Grant Club meeting lu,t night, says tho
charter election, or city olllcors, wero not
mentioned by anybody, nor was tho meeting
callod'for any such purpose." '
Now, If there is n man in Cairo billy
enough to boliove that tho moeliiig of tho
Grunt Club last night has no connection
with tho charter election, ho is tdmplo enough
for a straight jacket, nnd tliouldn't bo per
mitted to run nt hirge.
T'm i nitiiig resulted exactly ns ovory man
with th e grains of common genco supjioscd
it would in mi organization of tho enomie
of di'iiuurncy. It was not expected' that tho
whole iiioiiiblago would partlolpato in tho
j ip.iration ofa progrnmino for tho coining

with radical strategy. A fuw mon '-dark

Bolting democrats and radicals soem to have
a decided aversion to tho Irish; and, hero In
Cairo, always denounce tho regular demo
cratic tickt as an Irish ticket, and by this
cry oadoavor to enlist against it the prejudices
of Americans and Germans. Somewhat tardy
at the work this year, tho members of th
bolter's radical party havo at last raised tho
cry, and now, on every street corner, thoy
are damning tho Irish and damning tho dem
ocratic tlckot as an Irish ticket. In 18C4
JJr. Wilson succeeded In becoming 3Iayor
by loudly crying tho anti-Irish shibboleth,
and it has been determined to attempt to
break down tho present ticket by tho same
policy. The attempt, of course, will bo fu
tllo; and yct,itrango as it tnny stem, thoro
aro Irishmen who aro so lout to shamo as to
be members of tho opposition, and to join in
tho denunciation of their own race. Ufcd by
men who hato them, they arc base tools, ana
tho work In which they aro employed is as
dirt us their corrupt hearts. Joining with
men who havo always damned for
eigners and in particular tho Irish
they aro now denouncing, who? Tho editor
of the 'Bulletin,' a man who, at nil time?, has
defended foreigner from knoiv-nothlng as
saults, and is now hated by tho know-nothing
clement of tho democratic party because he
has stood up for our foreign-born citizens
with flrinncti, and has givim hard blows In
thcir.cnuse. That any couslderublo number
of our Irih fellow-citizens will unite with the
opposition in tho present contest wo cannot
boliove. If thoy do, they, strike a, blow at
thoir own interests from which tliey will not'
soon recover tliey inakg enemies of their
best friend., and do not make frlcndsjof tho
men who nro now their bitturcnt enemies. Wo

city will not onlv vote for tho regiilar ticket,
but alo labor for It with diligence and cn

Troublo U browing in the radical homo-
hold. The president elect has developed
within himself an Andrew Jacksonlsm that
has spread tho direst apprehension among
the radical lights that tho people, instead of
Xuw England and her pliant subjects, havo
secured a president. His reply to tho con
gressional committee who Informed him of
his nomination, means war, unless bo Is per
mitted to maintain tho dignity of the uxecu
tiyo department, and war utile tho constitu
tion is brought to tho light of duy again, nnd
accepted as tho chart and compass of congres
sional notion. Ho nn-ans wnr, not the weak
and etleinlnato war waged bv Andrew John
son, but "war to tho knife and tho knife to the
hilt!' Hear him:
'I am convinced, from tho various commu
nications I havo received, nnd from what I
havo heard, that some of tho persons I shall
choose will bo opposed by combinations of in
fluential men in tno party which hat support

As for tho tonure-of-otllco bill, repealed or
unrepealed, he dob not care n straw. Ho
says :

tho boundaries of tho city so that it will em
brace about tlfty square milos, nnd hnvo it
surrounded by a boulevard not more than
eight hundrod nor less than six hundred feet
wide. Tho project is a mngnitlcent ono, and
if carried out will bo enormously costly; but
it is (ortaiii that the rapid enhancement of
tho vuluo of tho proporty near tho proposed
parks, and tho sub.omiont inereaio of the ba
sis of taxation, will inavitnbly bucomo a
fourco of revenue to tho city, fur in .excess of
tho expenditure. '

The 'Missouri Ucmocracy' is tho name of
an ably edited democratic paper published in
Capo Girardeau by Gruello i Going. From
n recent Issuo wo obtain tho following news
Abratii A. Cnrtrlght, a citizen of Capo
Girardeau cpunty, left his home, last Septem
ber, and falling to return, It was conjectured
that h had been foully dealt with. A few
days ago tho bleached liones of u human skele
ton with shreds of clothing attached, wore
found In a secluded spot a few miles from tho
city. An examination dlclocd two perfora
tions of tho skull, corresponding in izo with
a bullet. Tho fragments of clothing ideiiti-
tied tho remains as tho.e of Mr. Cartrlght,
and diligent Inquiry brought out tho fact that
ho had been murdered by three men, named
Isaac and William Hinkla and Joseph Trot
ter. Tho guilty parties are under nrroit.
A party of Capo Girardeau deer hunters
troed two horse thlovoi In Mississippi county
last week, near Texas Uend. Tim haying of
dogs brought them to the spot, hut there being
no present evidences of guilt the trued indi
viduals wero not molested. About two hours

men who were now i iunUd on good hure.
The hunters made cwao, nnd caplurod ono of
two, but tho other, nbfttidoliing his animal
escaped in the nokhWing ehnpparoU TIio
horses were secured and returnel to Mr.
Margaret Keys, frwni whom they , had been
tolen tho Thur.day previous.
The Grand Army of the Ilepublic, or so
much of it as it domiciled fn Capn Girardeau,
propose an appropriate celebration of Well

No help being at hand the old man revonled
the hiding place of his circulatlng.medlum
$250 in gold, and $250 in greenbacks. Tho
rascals appropriated tho amount, nnd then
galloped awny unmolested.
If, ufter surveying tho tlold our .radicul

radical candidate for the Judgeship in this
circuit is at all doubtful, ho will securo such
action of tho legislature us will ndd Johnson
