Last week we noticed the presence ofmyr
iads of rrassboDners in the fields around
Staunton. Va. Strange to say that the
fearfully cold weatherdid not affect tbem in
the least, and while the thermometer was
ten decrees below zero they were hopping
about as lively as ever. On Monday last
the fields were still full of them.

John' Jordan, an industrious, hard
working, well-behaved colored man, died
in Somerville. Tenn Monday night
. From what we can learn he was the -victim
of a supposed conjuration. Fully
believing he had been conjured, and
with a -view of relievihe' himself there
from, he had ewallowed dose alter dose of
the most powerful emetics, until his sys-
tem'was 'completely exhausted, and he
paid the penalty of his superstitious be-
lierwiln his life.
Early yesterday morning, as a "woman
wenllnto tbe saloon or Julius Wilcke,
in Chicago, Ills., to get some beer, she
discovered the dead body of the proprie
tor. There was a deep gash in his skull
above the rieht eve from which the brains
were oozing, and another cut from the
mouth to the chin. A hatchet was lying
on the floor, and the pockets or the vie
tira'were turned out and rifled. No trace
of the 'murderer has been discovered, but
his Object was doubtless money, since it
was known that Wilck6 expected to re
ceive $1,500 On Satbrdav evening.
Mr. Geo, Bright, an old resident of
Fannin county,, Texas, was killed at his
hotneriear Hotfev Grove, on the 24th,
under 'the following circiirnstances: It
eeemrthat Mr. B. had punished one of
his children on the day previous, and, on
the morning of the shooting affair, had
oraerea mis one 10 gei up ana mane

fattier attempted to whip him, but his
mofh'er interposed. The quarrel between
the husband and wife was bitter, and Mrs.
B. testifies that he was about to strike
her. when James Bright, a boy of about
twenty, jerked down a gun that was
hanging on the wail, and sbot him dead.
The voun man then made hie escape.

only a raw aays neiore. xne eviaence ad
duced at 'the coroner's inquest leaves no

the murder was premeditated. Every
possible effort has been made to secure:
the murderer, but as yet without success.
On Friday last a terrible 'tragedy was'
enacted in DeSoto parish, La., a few
miles south of Sonne Ridge. It seems
that an old man named Samuel San ford
77 years old. 'his son John SanforJ, aged
SO years, and aon-in-law of the old man
named Ben Pittman, while, on their way
from Shelby county. Texas. toShreveport,
stopped on "the ftide of the road to eat
dinner. As the old man was sitting
against a tree, nis son stepped up 10 mm
drew bis six-shooter and remarking:
have got you where I have wanted you
for four years," fired two shots' into his
father's side or breast. The bitter sprang
up, mounted bis horse ana gaiiopea on,
when the .son pursued him, and, over
taking him. presented his pistol at his
head. The old man begged him not to
shoot again, flaying "you nave Killed me,
and I'wish to say something before I die,
or something to thaMitfect, The son then
rode off and. made, his escape into .Texas.
A parly from Spring Ilidge, shortly after
the horrible tragedy, went in pursuit of

At .last accounts Mr. Sanford was alive,
but'not expected to recover From what
we could learn, the act was prompted by
a desire on the part of the eon to get the
property of tbe father.
Last Monday, near Huntsville, Tenn
just over the Madison line, in Haywood
county, a negro woman left"home for a
few minutes, leaving two email children
in charge of a negro girl about twelve
years old. When she returned half an
hour later, she found her children, whom
eh e bad left hale and hearty, both lying
together dead. They looked perfectly
natural, with.no egn of violence on lliem
The alarm was given to the neighbors by
he half-distracted mother, suspicion rest
ed on the girl. She ivas charged with
poisoning tbem, and at, first she denied
it, but, when threatened, she went to a
log close, by and took from tinder it a Lot
t eol fitrrclinine. She had been hired si
a nurse by the father of the children, and
was opposed to living with the family,
is Hupposed she poisoned the children
get rid of nursing s.nd caring for them.
She says a negro man eare her the pois
oiu and told her to nut (t id the barrel of
meal, and she would then get to go back
home. Kevers! negroes have been arrest
ed, but it is not positively known whether
they have the guilty one or not. Whoev

to Kin the whole latiuly.

THE DEMOCRACY OF KEN
"We desire to present a few thoughts
based upon recent deplorable and dis-l
graceful occurrences, for your careful
and. patriotic consideration. In writing
as we do, we are actuated by the purest
of .motives, and moved by our exceed
j ing devotion to the principles of, and
jealous consideration-for4heiair fame
our party. Fpr the past twenty
years, we have advocated with pen and
oice the adoption of those principles
the American people. "We have
in that time seen Kentucky, our belov
ed native State, redeemed Irom captiv
ity, and its, statue, set in the Valhalla
of Democracy. "We Live sufficient van-
ty to believe that we contributed, in
some small degree, to that desirable re
sult. It is true enough, that once or
twice, when extraneous issues were in
jected into the party, we were compelled
to differ with a portion of our political
brethren; but these differences passed
away with the occasions that produced
them, (and they were never antago
nisms of principle), and left us all in
full accord as before their intrusion.
"With the late war its causes or its
merits we of to-day have nothing to
do. That is all dead and buried, and
ought to be forgotten, matter. The
sword was appealed to, and by its decis
ion we must abide. No good can be
accomplished by raking through the
ashes of the late fratricidal strife, and
dragging into view the charred skeleton
of a quarrel that is dead. We fully
and freely accord to those who occupied
opposing sides credit for honesty in sen
timent and patriotism in action. "We
mourn those who offered up their lives
on either side as our common dead, as
brothers who laid the extreme offering
of devotion to what they deemed the
sacred cause of liberty on the altar of
their country. Their going forth to
battle and sudden death we accept as
the strongest evidence of their faith in
the justice of their respective causes.
Standing by their graves, we ask not
the color of the uniforms they wore, nor
demand to know which flag they hal
lowed by their blood. "We only know
that they sleep in a common earth, that
an impartial sky bends over them all,
and that the green grass and the beau
tiful flowers avoid not the graves of the
pne, nor concentrate their wealth of love
liness and adornment upon those of the
other. We only know, and only care
to.know, that, enemies no longer, they
Under the violets the blue,

Under the lillies the blue, -Under

D'iscarding, then, the late war as a
legitimate subject of discussion, and
looking only to the perils that environ
and threaten our liberties perils great
er and more imminent even than when
we stood arrayed against each other in
hostile lines of battle it becomes us to
employ all of our judgment, to summon
all of our wisdom, to survey the critical
situation with the coolest and keenest
scrutiny we can command; and then
thrusting to one side all merely partisan
and personal considerations, act as. one
man, fully realizing the gravity of thd
occasion and the extraordinary respon
sibility that rests upon each one indi
vidually, and so act that our State and
our -whole country shall be benefitted
and preserved by our action.
We cannot afford to create and foster
dissensions in our ranks. There lives
no man. we care not whom he may be,
that has that claim upon us as a party
which demands that we should sacrifice
the harmony, perhaps the very exist
ence of the party, to advance his per
sonal interests. -When any candidate,
we care not who he is, stoops to the
lowest and vilest arts of the demagogue
to accomplish his own selfish ends, pro
ducing ruptures at county conventions
and .creating estrangements between
Democrats, spreadingschism and heart
burnings wherever he goes, he should
be looked upon as the publio enemy of
the party and treated accordingly. The
Democratic party of .Kentucky to-day
presents, the anomalous spectacle ofa
besieged Troy, against which dema-
goguery is waging a fierce and unrelent'
inc Punic war. The Greek horse of
selfishness has been introduced into our
citadel the county convention hav
ing coucealed in its hollow stomach
armed and bitter dissensions.' The fruits
of this introduction of disguised and con
cealed enemies into our county convo
cations, are already sadly and disgrace
fully apparent in the results of the
county conventions held in Owen, Bour
bon, Hart and Daviess. The. evil is
now in its bud, and can be easily met
and eradicated. If. left to grow and
gather volume and strength, it can have
but one and that'a disastrous termina
tion. The iarmony, the mobility of
the party once destroyed, its usefulness
will have passed away. In our union
of sentiment and endeavor alone con
sists our strength. By united action
only can we continue to conquer.
In the counties named above we were
presented with theiitherto unheard-of
spectacle of life-long. Democrats, men
of the first standingand position in their
communities and in the party, being

was their deprivation of, the free

England. And shall we, their descend
ants, submit to be robbed, through the
arts and trickery of ambitious dema
gogues, of this' dearest and most valued
right of American Democrats? Torbid
