Tberepubücan county coramlttee, we are Informed, held a meeting in this city last week and sent out for schub or the republicana who are not Bupportlng Allen, but these rcpubllcans ful led to put In appoarance.- Argus.

McCormick, of Ash townsbip, Monroe Co., the democratie nominee for state senator from this district, was a visitor in tho city last Friday. If he could go over all the district the republicans would need no better electioneering thunder.

A tallow candle vvould be elected in (hls district ifit was only on the democratie ticket - and McCormlck is tliere. We understand that Oen. C.iry was dlsturbed In liis speech Friday evenlng last by sotne yoiing men who onght to liave had more respect for the gray hairs of the speaker, if they tlid not have for tliems lves. To disturb anybody who is speaking in public, no matter what his tlieme, is contemptible, and deserves the severest coiideinnalion. No gentleman wlll ;o to a meeting to disturb others. Tliose who attend speeches to liear should not be disturbed, those who do not care to listen should stay away. It Is as dishonorable to disturb a political ns a religious meeting.
