Ul'Esim;, C'h'm. lem. Com. M. T. Stafford, Ch'm. People's Com. The leyi-lative canvass is in a very peculiar and complicated condition in this district at the present wiiting, demo cratically speaking. The opposition to Mr. John T. Kenworthy, the regular democratic nominee, among the democra cy of Henry county, yesterday culmina ted in an open revolt, in an official sene at least. The Henry county democratic committee met at Cambridge to discuss the senatorial and legislative question, and two members of the senatorial com mittee. Messrs. L. C. Blanding and Wm. McEniry. conferred with them that is they were present at the meeting, but the bulldozers of Henry county ran things to suit themselves. After a strong de bate, and notwithstanding the protes tations of the Rock Island gentlemen, the county committee of Henry adopted the following: Rewired, That we approve and recom mend for the suffrages of the democrats of Henry county, the senatorial and leg islative nominees of the convention held at Orion, namely: Marx I). Ilauberg, for smator. and John T. Piatt, for represen tative. This is an open declaration of war up on Mr. Kenworthy by the democracy of Henry. Whatever influence the county oominittee wields will lie cast for John Piatt. This is coutemplible, ungenerous and unprincipled, and can but redound to the discredit of the democrats of that c lunty. They do not fuht Mr. Ken worthy on personal grounds, however. They charge tiieir grievances lo the dem ocratic party of Rock Island county. The sore-headed leaders over in Henry want to chastise the democrats of this county for a fancied wrong, and they imagine this is their golden opportunity, and Mr. Kenworthy is to he the victim. The Allocs is glad the Henry county men have shown their hand, even if They have degraded themselves in the eyes of all true deui'jrrats. We know where lo place them now, and Mr. Kenworthy and his friends will act accordingly. AX EX-SOLI WEirS VIEWS. It l Our llerrt to Urfrat Hob. William H. Ttrece? Unxliville Times. As one who was among the tirst to re spond to the call of our country for sold lers to put down the rebellion, and among the very last to leave the field, I teel thut I Lave a right to advise my fel low soldiers as to their best interests. I have always been a radical republican. and am the same to-day, and expect to live and die in the front ranks of the par iy But we as soldiers have great inter . sts at 6Uke. We have claims to look i.flt-r; and if we have not we know of uiauy who have; and the best way lo leach the departments is through the member of congress from our district, provided the member is in sympathy with mm- administration, otherwise there is no one to try lo t fl'ict anything through hi :, ucy. Mr. Neeee has shown himself the true : i ml to the soldier by personally work ing up a great many claims to a success I ill issue. He has had experience of two terms and is thoroughly aeuuatnted with :M the routine busruess uf the pension othee. Being on the committee on inva lid peusions, and chairman of the sub committee for Illinois, he has full author iiy to examine personally all evidence hied, aid to recommend and demand special legislation where it may be neccs- saty to secure favorable action on deserv ing claims. No soldier or widow, or or phan of a soldier, ever applied to him in vain for assistance in pressing their claims, and he has been successful in a large ma jority ot the cases he has called up, and his services have always been given free ly and without regard to the political af filiation of the soldier. Many of us who have had our claims drag alone for weary years have reason to thank him for getting them passed upon and always alt lowed; and now, when we need help the most, shall we defeat him and send up a new man whose influence with the depart ment would not be sufficient to get a claim harried up in the lcaslT JHe enn do ns Wore good there than any new man Uf whatertsf party, and we want MB m! H set tK; wn? eei sup w The majority of pension claims that were easily proven have been passed upon, but there are many thousands yet fully as de serving that are "hung up" on account of some technical point that can not be proven for some reason, perhaps, the witnesses are dead or cannot be found. These require special work, and perhaps a legislation will be required to overrun some of the absurd decisions of the vari -ous commissioners and clerks who have set themselves up as judges of the law. We need a friend at the front, and Mr. Neeee has so far shown his friendship by his sci ions, and we will further our inter ests if ws stand by him. . . . Personally I have nothing to gain by advocating the return of Mr. Neeee to congress as my pension was allowed long before he was a member of the house. I have watched him closely since he has be&n Ih-ITtj, nd speak my sentiments wln I aislrl1 that from my knowledge of hrsorirs(''!'ii-the past I feel safe in advis ing my soldier friends not to oppose his re election. I do this entirely unsolicit e3 ami wlthoutlne desire or hope of any reward other than tis?that e will, if elected, still help to push all deserving claims. In conclusion I wish most emphalically to state that I do not champion the cause of (he Democracy. I do not for a mo ment endorse the administration or any part of it. I know Mr. Neeee and be lieve him to be thoroughly honest and a friend to the soldiers, and that he will help us. What his war record is. nr what he has done in the past, does not in the least affect us now. What we want is present help, and if Mr Neeee can do us more good at Washington than any other man, why then let us send him back. A Soldier A UOOD THINK TO DO. Namely, to Knt---VhieagoM Res ttrarantM A Better Hay Coainx It iH Hoped. Chicago Herald Some serious individual asked once if life was worth living, and the answers to the question have been many and diverse, but one of the most pungent responses was: ' It depends upon the liver." The point would have been lost but perhaps the prosaic truth would have lieen pre served intact if the answer had been: "It depends upon the digestion." One of the most critical times in a man s life is when, without chart or compass, be sets sail upon troubled sea of city restaurant life. It is an interesting occupation this diurnal dining of ours and it seems to lose none of its prestige as the years come and go. Whether it be a sorry crust or a costly spread it matters not for the hour if appetite is king; but. for the future, each man should be on his guard, and when it comes to what he eats then put prudence and intelligence on picket guard and challenge every comer. Our Chicago people are good livers. Our climate is a rare appetizer, and, bid ding dyspepsia seek a more congenial clime, your Chicago man or wo man eats well, and heartily, and ju diciously, and is none the worse for it. But there are many men and wo men who live too far from home, or are too busy at the noontime hour to go home, or that prefer for any number of reasons to live at the restau rant. The restaurants in this city, as a whole, are not what they should be, not what they could be, not what the patrons ought to demand. The city is lamenta bly behind in this respect. More money could be made, more satisfaction could be experienced, more stomachs could be relieved from risk if the restaurant keep ers of Chicago would resolve to pre sent better bills, cleaner appurtenances, swifter service, more wholesome cook ing. The day w ill come when the maynifi cent opportunities in the line uf game and fish, Iruit, farm products and meat, which this county offers, will find ample results in a better class of restaurants than the city now has. Tariff Revision. The New York Worlil, in reply to a favorite declaration of the supporters of war duties in time of peace, that "if the tariff is to be revised it must be revised by its friends rather than by itscnemies:" Well, the tariff has been tinkered and revised by its friends, the extreme pro tectionists, three or four tim'S since the close of the war, and what has been the result? The schedule of dutiable articles still includes over 4,(MH) items. The aver age ad valorem duty last year was over 4t per cent, which is about 2 er cent less than the highest rate of the war per iod, and nearly 4 per ceut. mere than it was before the last "revisiou of the tariff by its friends" in The amouut of revenue received from duties last year was $13,000,000 greater than was collect ed in 18S6, when the war taxes.were at their highest point. It thus appears that the "revision of the tariff by its friends" has neither ma terially lessened the taxes nor reduced the revenue. It is not high time to have a revision that will revise, and a reduc tion that will reduce? Tinnr at a Cliiiieati Urstauraut. W'itiuii the past two months several prom inent persons have given select dinner parties at the Chinese restaurant in Itlott street, Oue given by Comiucujore Thomas J.Falls, formerly rajieriutendunt of the imperial ar seuiil at Tsin-Tsin, cost Fulls fliiO. There wre twelve at the tattle, inludin six China men, liirdn nests, sharks' tins, driwl 1 trusts, bamboo sprouts and smoked and pn,ssed nits from tbe -Celestial shores are said to have leen on the hill of fare. The commodore wuxed enthusiastic in praise of the rats. Ho has lived nearly twenty years in the Chinese ornpire. He says that Americans have very little idea of the care taken by the Chinese in racing rats for the market. They are taken from the nst when young, and brought up on a diet of milk and rice. A delicate air planti: fed to them for a week before they are killed, wtiieh imparts to the nwh an ex quisite llavor. To um the commodore' words, '"The dish i as far suiwrior to a squirrel pot-pie as a tig is to a jiaw paw." Ho puppies were served at the Falls dinner, to the apparent disappointment of his Chinese puestti. The wines and liquors wore of Celestial brewing und distilling. The dinner wound up w iUi copious libations of rice rum, which wound up the intellects of four cf th guests. One, a noted shipbuilder, wound up in tlie police court on the f ollowing morning, and paid $10 tine. tVw York Cor. Pioneer Press.

When the change comes it is like the wave of a magician's wand. Pictures that the artist could not get a dinner on are eagerly sought for by the dealers.

Every small , craft that comes up the river continues to j bring refugees from the flooded district about Sabine Pass. Tbe death lift is esti- j mated by persons w ho have been over the scene of devastation at Taylor's Bayou, John- j son's Bayou, and Sabine Pass, at about '-250 souls. Already around Johnson's Bayou eighty-five coriwes have been rwovered and fifty-four bodies, thus far, buried and sixty six white and colored persons missing at Sa bine. It is known that the number of suffer ers arouud Johnson's Bayou, who have lost everything will reach 1,200, while the Sabine sufferers will number SOT, one-half of whom are now in Beaumont. The searchers for the unfortunates in the vicinity of Sabine have become scared by the dangerous appearance of tho cattle. The watering pools have been filkd with sea water and the cattle are wild with thirst. In tel ligence has reached here that the great gale swept over the conntry for forty miles north of Beaumont and Orange, reaching Jasper county, and damaging cotton badly.

BTEFBEHS C0US1H I am flrsttousin of thejlate Ex-Gov ernor Alexander H. Stephens, and have been'postal clerk on different railroads since 1868. For ten years I have been a sufferer from a cancer on my face. which grew worse until the discharge of matter became proluse ami very offen sive. I became thoroughly disgusted with blood purifiers and pronounced them humbugs, as I bad tried many without relief, Finally I was induced to use B. B. B. which was about the 1st of February, and continued its use until tbe latter part of April. The offensive discbarge de creased at once and tbe hardness around the cancer disappeared. It improved my general health and I rapidly gained flesh and strength. The discharge gradually decreased and tfce cancer became less and less in size until nothing remains except a scar to tell the tale of a once danger ous cancer. All who have seen me since I have commenced the use of B B. B. bear testimony of my great improvement, and the scar on my face shows that it cured the cancer. I find that B. B. .B. comes squarely up to what it is rccom mended, and I cannot say too much in praise of this wonderful medicine. I have tried them all, but B. B II. stands at the top as a blood purifier. Tbe above is copied from the Atheus (Ga.) Iinnner- Watchman, being the vol untary language of Mr. jan es A. Greer, "Mr. Greer is an honest, uptight citizen of Athens, who had a had cancer, and his numerous friends thought that, he could not live very long, as the cancer was gradually sapping the foundation of bis constitution, but now looks well and hearty. " 2 AGalNBT 18 Several physicians have pronounced my disease blood poison, caused hy paint or lead in Ihe paint, but they could not cure me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles of a largely advertised blood medi cine, which did me no more good than so much water. I have used only two bottles of B. B. B. and am proud to say that I have re ceived greater benefit from lliem thflti from the eighteen, and m now rapidly recovering. There is no qecstion about the superiority of B. U. 1J. over all blood remedies. 215 Reynolds street. V II. Woody. Augtia, Ga., April 21st, ISNi.
