JNO. P. BARRETT, Local Editor,
Malcolm Mclntyre, A. B. , announces in
to-day's paper bis new session and terms.
Mr. Mclntyre has won a deservedly popu
lar rcptuation aa an industrious and pains
taking educator. He is too well known
in this community to require editorial en
dorsement from us as a thorough gentle-
man in all the walks of life, and an
kelson Midkiff, of color, living near
Elm Lick Station, in this county, was
KUKiuzea about a month ago, and so
badly beaten that he has been in bed
ever since. The knklux were not ex-reb
els or White Leaguers this time, but men
and women of his own sable hue. The
famous colored, Dr. George Brown, of
"bug" notoriety, helped to tie him for the
whipping, we understand.
Geo. W. Buncer, Deputy Sherifl
brought Wm. H. Foreman to town, on
Saturday last, under a bench warrant
from the Ohio Circuit Court, which was
issued on an indictment found at the last
termvof said court, charging him with
Enticing and carrying away the wife of
another.'' His bail had been fixed at five
hundred dollars, and, failing to give the
came, he was lodged in jail, but gave the
bond on Monday, and was discharged
Death of a Waif.
About a month ago a poor widow wo
man named Hewitt died in Daviess coun
ty, and on ber death-bed requested her
little fatherless eon, Jimmy, to come to
Hartford, where she was satisfied that
there were charitable people who would
give him a home. The little fellow, only
ten years of age, walked all the way ,to
this place, and told his plaintive story.
Our kincMiearted young friends, Elijah'
Wlliams and brothers, were wooed to
compassion for the little waif, and sent
him out to their father's, Jerry Williams,
Esq. This was about two weeks ago.
Here he Found second parents tn the good
couple, whose hearts soon learned to love
the sprightly little unfortunate. Poor
Jimmy, however was not long destined to
enjoy the kind home Providence had put
in his way. A few days ago he wad at
tacked by pneumonia, and last Saturday
evening breathed his last.
Last night the advance guard of the
loafing brigade invaded our office and took
possession. They not only occupied space
that could have been better filled, but
were too infernally lazy to keep up the
fire. A loafer is one of those objects to
which distance lends enchantment, and
the greater the distance between him and
us the prettier he looks To us. "JfOw-wc
bave no use under heaven for loafers.
We don't want them about us.
We won't have them about us. We dis
like to hurt their feelings. We would
hate to b inhospitable enough to order
tbenijout of the office. Therefore we hope
all of the genus will take this as a gentle
hint, a kind and loving invitation, to here
after keep away frow TnE Herald office,
and thus rave us from the painful neces
sity of requesting them to vamose le ranch.

The Hartford Seminary.
The present session at the Seminary
will close on Saturday, February 20, with
an examination. The new session will
bc-gin on the following Monday (the 22d)
lue seminary will continue under the
charge of Prof. Haynes and his popular
and accomplished assistant and B:ster,
Miss Emma. The Professor requests us
to state to the public that it is very cssen
tial to the proper classification of the pu-
pils that as many of them as possible
should attend on the first day. Prof.
Haynes has been one of the most success
ml educators ever engaged ncrc, and we
predict for him increasing popularity and
Broke His Acclc,
Jjast baturday week, a young man
ofMcLeait comity, named MclScw,
took out his marriage license at Cal
hoon. The succeeding day, while
drunk, he engaged in a horse race, and
was thrown against a tree with suffi
cient force to break hi neck. As he
was a drinking man, the accident was
an unexpected, and, possibly, unde-
sired,picce of good fortune for the
young lady he was about to marry.
On Saturday night, the 9th instant, at
Russell school house, in Daviess county,
near the Ohio county line, James Sumner
and David Russell engaged in a difficulty,
in which Russell received a severe cut iu
the back of the neck, making a very ugly
and dangerous wound. It grew out of an
old grudge between the parties. Sumner
invited Russell out, as we learn, and asked
him to fight Russell proposed to 11 "lit
without weapons, and Sumner agreed,
when Russell struck him and Sumner
drew his knife and cut him.
Crashed in a Coal Mine.
On last Thursday week, James Martin
and a man named Brooks, were working
in a coal mine a few miles above town,
when a heavy piece of slate fell from- the
roof upon Mr. Martin, mashing him up
terribly. Brooks ran to his assistance,
lifted the slate off, and took Martin home.

iujuries may result fatally.
Mr. Allen, charged with stealing a shot
gun from Samuels and Barber, at Beaver
Dam, mention of which was made in our
last issue, was acquitted of the charge on
last Wednesday. We hope he will conduct
himself in future so as to be above suspi
cion, and make a good and useful oitizen.

and last nights. They did the edibles
ample justice, and were not forgetful of
the kind donor.

McLEAX COUNTY ITEMS.
FATAL ACCIDENT TWO MEN KILLED:
Calhoov, Ky. Jan. 13, 1875.
Editor Hecald: A very unfortunate
accident occurred at Lewis' Station, on
the Owensboro and Russellville railroad,
last Friday evening, by which- two " good
citizens lost ther lives. The boiltof a por
table saw mill exploded, instantly killing
Henry Haley and wounding his son so
badly that he died in an hour. Mr. Ha
ley was about forty-five years old and
leaves a wife and ten children. His son
that was killed had only been married
about a month. The funeral took place
Sunday. The men were well thought of,
and their sudden death has cast a gloom
over the surrounding community.
FIRE IN CALHOON.
On last Saturday evening a fire broke
out in the frame bl6ck opposite the Phffi
nix Hotel, in the' second story of the
house occupied by Mr. Pfeifferas a boot
and shoe shop. Excitement ran high for
some time, and the occupants of the block
gave up the buildiugs as lost, and began
to carry out their goods and chattels, but
a few men, more cool and self-possessed,
organized a force, procured some ladders,
and soon had the fire out, but not until
they had very nearly ruined the building
in which the fire originated. No other
building in the block was damaged. One
incident occurred that shows the great
generosity and liberality in some men:
A farmer, who was in town attending
court, at the time, ran to the new church
and got a ladder, brought it to the burn
ing building, and was otherwise very ac
tive and instrumental in putting out the
fire. During the confusion, he got the
heel torn from one boot. After it was
all over, he stepped into a boot and shoe
shop situated adjacent to the block that
was on fire, and which would have inevi
tably shared the same fate of the others if
the fire had not been extinguished, and go
the proprietor to put another heel on his
boot for which he charged him fifty cents.
Such generosity has not been equaled
since the day the man stole the acorns
from a blind hog. It was not Mr. Pfeiffer
that was guilty of this liberality.
has been in session here for ten days.
The grand jury was discharged yesterday
after finding twenty-three indictments.
One of the most important civil suits
on the docket was that of Mrs. Jones
against the Piedmont and Arlington Life
Insurance Company. Plaintiff's husband
took out a policy for two thousand dol
lars in this company about a year ago,
the annual premium to- Tie paid in quar
terly installments, the first of which was
paid, and when the eecond fell due the
compauy sent a receipt to their asentliere
to countersign and deliver and collect the
premium. Jones was sick at the time, and
payment was not made when due. but was
finally made, the receipt delivered, and the
money forwarded to the Company. The
latter returned it, having heard of Jones'
death, and claim, I understand, that the
payment was made after Jones died. A
short time after Jones' death, and before
the suit was instituted, Mrs. Jones moved
to Texas, and the suit was dismissed be
cause bond for costs was not executed at
the time the action was filed. I under
bland that plaintiff will sue again, and
execute bond next time. Our mutual
friend, Dr. E J. Kirksccy, State Agent,
was here attending to the company's inter
est. 1 he court is several days behind the
docket, being on the fourth day's businetf ,
yet. The following prominent lawyers
from other counties were in attendance
last week: Hon W. N. Sweeney, Judge
L. P. Little, G. W. Ray, Eli U. Brown.
R. IL Taylor, and W. T. Owen, of Ow
ensboro; Judge Charles Eaves and Geo-
A. Prentice, of Henderson; and A. C.
Tanner, of Evansville, Indiana. Messrs.
Little, Owen, Pienticc and Tanner for
merly lived here.
GENERAL FATETTE UEWITT,
candidate for Auditor of State, has been
here during court, mixing round with the
good people of McLean, and seems to be
making a very favorable impression and
a host of friends here.
TUE COLD WEATHER.
It has been extremely cold here for sev
eral days. The thermometer stood, Sat
urday morning, eight degrees below zero.
LOST niS OFFICE.
John White, who was elected Sheriff
of this county last August, neglected to
file his bond until last Monday
(which was the last day he could qualify
under the law,) when he came in brought
bis sureties, but the County Judge was
from home on a visit to Texas. Circuit
Court being in session, Judge Cissell was
asked to compel the nearest magistrate
to act as Judge pro tern., qualify the sher
iff, and approve the bond, but the Judge
very properly refused to do so, the law
not authorizing it, and Mr. White forfeits
hia office. It is thought that the County
Judge will appoint him when he returns,
and that if he runs he will be elected with
out opposition. Sheriffs ought not, with
out sufficient cause, to 'put off qualifying
until the last day.for fear of some accident,
J. A. Rudy, the former sherifl, is still act
ing, and will continue to dc so until his
successor is qualified. Ariel

THE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA,
MAGNIFICAST CONCEPTION WON
DERFULLY CARRIED OUT,
Tbe necessity of a popular medium forth
representation of the productions of our great
artists has always been recognized, and many
attempts bave been made to meet the want
The successive failures whch have to Invariably'
followed each attempt in this country to estab'
lish an art journal, did not prove the IndiSTe'
ence of the people of America to the claims of
nigh art. So soon as a proper appreciation of
tbe want and an ability to meet it were shown,
tbe ptlblio at onto rallied with enthusiasm to
its support, and tbe remit was a rreat artistic
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
The Aldine white issued with all of tbe rega
larity, has none of the temporary or timely in
terests characteristic of ordinary periodically
It Is ad elegant miscellany of pure, light, and
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures
the rarest collection of artistic skill in black
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty ot The Aldine will be most
appreciated after it is bound op at the close of
the year. While other publications may claim
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of
a similar class. Tbe Aldine is a unique and
original conception alone and unapproached
absolutely without competition in price or
character. The possessor of a complete vol
ume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine psr
per and engravings In any other shape or num
ber of volumes, for ten tines it cost,-, and tcnf
there it tie eiromo, bcridctt
The national feature of The Aldine must bo
taken in no narrow sense. True art is eosmo
politan. While The Aldine is a strictly Ameri'
ran institution, it does not confine itself to th
reproduction of native art. Its mission is to
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, oa
that will discriminate en grounds or intnntis
merit. Thus, while pleadlngbefore the patron
of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic, th
productions of the most noted American artists,
attention will always be given to specimens
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all tb
pleasure and instruction obtainable from horn
or foreign sources.
The artistic illustration of American scenery
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates are of a sis
more appropriate to tbe satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious lnterspersion of landscape,
marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible' where the scope
of the work confines the artist too closely to a
single style of sueet. Tbe literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of the artistia features, with only such
technical disquisitions as do not interfer with
the popular interest of the work.
