This eminent tragedian will give an entertainment at Metropolitan Hall, Davenport, on Tuesxfay evening. As an elocutionist Mr. Murdoch has few equals. After appearing successfully before the publio for a number of years as a "star actor," he has renounced' the stage ' and now confines himself to readings and recitations of choice dramatic and poetic selections, fur which - his talant eminently qualifies him. He appears one evening only. Those wishing reserved seats can secure them af the hall during the day. ':' - Tax Ls Claire Boat YARO.-There are two boats now on the ways at LeClaire undergoing repairs ; the War Eagle and the Union.' A goodly number of mechanics are - now employed on the boaU.and it is expected - more will be needed in ' a lew weeks, as several boats are expected for - repairs. Last week the company owning the - yard . raised the wages of their employees about twenty-five cents per day, without a strike. This yard is xtow under the management of Mr. Vansant, of this city, one of the best ship builders and repairers on the river. -; ( , , " ' The river has been all clear of cv ; at Lfl Claire and up to Princeton since Thursday last. - Citt Elxctiox. To morrow is our annual election fop city officers. The. places for voting are named in an advertisement in this paper. - The people will then exercise their right to vote for whoever they please, without any regard to cliques of played-out office seek ers, or-men who have axes to grind, ''0 cau-casses, or dictation, from anybody. -Let no person allow any other person td even question him as to how he shall vote, or how he has voted It is none of their business. Let all such impertinence be rebuked as it deserves. A free man is responsible only to his own conscience for the manners he "exercises hia right of suffrage. When w can ;iiot exercise our right to vote for who we please without asking some other man's leave or incurring his censure, or being inflicted with his praise, we will own 'ourselves .slaves: at once, and unfit to be freemen. Out upon the street corner, played-out politician who attempt to dictate to freemen how they shall rote! ' ; A Falsx Report. Enemies of out excellent mayor have started a story that he is not a candidate for re election." It is simply an invention of the enemy., For more :than a "month it hM teen well understood that Mr. Davenport would, if the people desired it,, be a candidate for reelection. After repeated requests from the people generally, be con ented to run, and his name, was "properly an-jwaneedU Those who know him ' t 11 know Tery well that he is a fean who does not change bis mind with every wind that blows. Ono satisfied that he is right, he doe not change. He has been a candidate for some weeks, and be will continue to be a candidate until the boxes close to-morrow, night-; U has been mayor for two years, and has given very general satisfaction. Under his admin istration our taxes have been reduced nearly one-half. All the bonds yet due the Chicago and Rock Island railroad have been paid. All the old engine debt has been pid. We have some six tbousaud dollars in caali, n hand, in the treasury, and evety claim against the city. Tequiring payment, has been met, exept the interest on the bonds given for stock in the Peoria railroad. Mr. Davenport's policy is, not to pay that until the bondhold ers will do hs other bondholders have done with other cities, vi : reduce the rate of interest. In this we believe he is correct, and we believe the people think so. We believe his general policy meets the approval of the people, r He has a right to be a candidate for reelection, and tlu people have a right to reelect him if they choose. Uniow Convxktioj. We notice -t a posters on the streets, calling on all who are in favor of the union and a vigorous prosecution of the war to meet, to night, at the conrt bouse, at 7J o'clock, to nominate a union candidate for mayor. We do not know who got up the poster, but it is reported that it was gotten up forjhe purpone of nominating T. J. Rol inson, a member of the secret armed society, for mayor. .r What axe has he got to grind ? Doea he want his ferry charter extended again? We suggest to the friends of the union to go in and nominate BaiTey Davenport. No better union man or war man can he found in this city, . Let the friends of the union and a vigorous prosecution of the . war to crush the rebellion and restore the union go in for Bailey Davenport. It is their bet hold, and unless the object is to make a party issue the caucus to night will nominate Mr. Davenport. Democratic Convintio.'. Pursuant to a previous call, the democracy met in mass convention' in the court house, iu Rock Island, and on motion of Mr." Norris, Wm. Epgles-ton. Esq., was called to the chair, and J. S. Kelly chosen secretary. The object of the meeting was stated by the chair, and on motion the convention proceeded to nominate a candidate for the office of mayor. ' . ; i ; ,; r - "' Nominations being in order, the following persons were put in nomination for the consideration' of the convention,' vi ; Jacob Fry-singer, B. II.

AND THE FR IENDS OF SOLDIERS. We call the attention of all having relations or friends ia the army to the fact that HOOF- LAND'S German Bitters wilt core nine-tenths of. the diseases induced by exposures and privations incident to camp life. In the liata, published almost daily in the newspapers, on the arrival of. the sick, it will be noticed that a very large proportion - are suffering from debility.' Every case of that kind can be readily cured by Hoof-land's Germsn Bitters. Diseaaes resulting from disorders of the digestive organs are speedily removed. We have ne hesitation in stating that, if these Bitters were freely need among our aoldiers, hundreds of .lives might be saved that otherwise will be lost. We call particular attention to the following remarkable and well authenticated cure of one ot the nation's herois, whose life, to use his own language, ' haa been aaved by the Bitters 1 " , Philadelphia, August 23d, 1362. Mesnt. Jones 4 Evan Well, gentlemen, your Hoorland's German Bitters has saved my life. There is no mistake in this. It is vouched for by number ff my comrades, some of whose name, are appended, and who were fully cognisant of all the circum.tances of my case. I am, and have been for the last four years, a member of Sherman's celebrated battery, and under the immediate command of Captain R. B. Avert. Throaih the exposure attended upon my arduous duties, I was attacked ia November last with inflamation of the lungs, and was for seventy-two days In the hospital, t This was followed by great debility, heightened by an attack of dysentery. , I was then removed from the White House, and tent to this city on board the steamer State of Maine, from which I landed on the 28th of June. Sines that time I have been about at low aa any one could be and still retain a spark of vitality. For a week or more 1 was scarcely able to swallow anything, and if I did force a morsel down it wat immediately thrown up again. . 1 could uot .ersn keeps glass of water on my stomach. Life could sot laat under these circam-stance, j and, accordingly, the phyaicians who had been working faithfully, though Unsuccessfully, to rescue me fr,m the grvtp of the dresd Archer, frankly told me they could do ao more fbt me, and advised me to See a clergyman, aad to make such disposition of my limited funds as beet suited me. An acqnaintance who visited me at the hespita), Mr. Frederick Steiabroa, of Sixth below Arch street, advised me, as a forlorn hope, to try your Bitters, and kindly procured me a bottle. From the time 1 commenced taking them the gloomy shadow ot death receded, and I am now, thank God for it, getting belter. Though 1 have taken but two bottles, I have gained tea pounds, and 1 feel sanguine of being permitted to rejoin my wife and daughter, from whom I have heard nothing for eighteen monthsf for," gentlemen am a loyal Virginian, from the vicinity of Freat Royal. To your Invaluable Bitters I owe the certainty of life which hat taken the place of vague tears to voor Bitters' will I owe the glorious privilege of again clasping to my bosr-m those who are dearest to SM in lil'ss - Very truly yours, A ,!
