Eficn Austin, a coloredwoman of Bea

tiled and acquitted on Monday. Al
though the stolen money and pockcthook
were found in her possession, the jury
was of the opinion that she had not sense
enough to steal them.

with giving liquor to a minor. It was a

fast becoming a terror to evil doers of

This is the title of a new quxrlo litera
ry and temperance journal, which reaches
us from the city of Louisillc. It is pub
lished by N. F. Thompson, E;-q.. G. W.
S. and Tr , ofthe 1. O G. T., and takes
the place of the lempcrance Advocate, the
publication of which has been discontin
ued. The U'cvjATy is one ofthe hamhomcst
papers in the country, is edited with indus
try, vigor and good judgment.and deserves
to be patronized by every family in the
cominouiveaUIi. Mrs. J. C. Morton, of
Frankfort, a lady of rare literary accom
plishments, who is not unknown to lame
as a writer of delightful prise and verse,
is the literary editor. The initial num
ber contains the opening chapters of a se
rial story by Mrs. Morton, entitled, "The
Oiklands, or, the Cost and Consequen
ces of Dissipation, "w hich bids fair to be
absorbingly interesting.
We commend the Weekly to our readers
as well worthy of their patronage. It is a
much abler and more interesting paper
than the trashy eastern to-called litera
ry papers that Hood our State and coun
try, and will prove a delight and blessing
to any family that takes it. The sub
fccription price is exceedingly low for the
ttylc and character of the journal being
only $2 a year which certainly places it
within the reach of every one. We wish
it a long mid prosperous life.
Mr. Larkin Kail and wife, formerly
residents of this ph.ee, hut now living in
Lincoln, Illinois, are on a visit to their
relatives and friends here. Mr. Xall
looks as hale and hearty as when he left

hack, "Pap." and hope you will sojourn
agooJ while with us.

THE JAMES BOYS.
T!ioyIIavPi:nPPOslKcnttli,V. niitl

Their a iit V. oi k lit .ifon sum i
.1Zi:rIer.
We have it from the rao-t reliable au
thority that the notorious Mw-ouri bri
gands, the. lames boys, have entered this
St-ite, and are at present sojourning in
Webster county They cm be seen at
Sebree City, on the St. Louis and South
eastern road almost any day. Indeed, a
prominent citizen or that place informed
a gentleman of Shawnectown, III , last
Wednesday, that he could put his hand
on the Jameses nt any time, day or night.
When asked why the people did not
turn out cn masse and capture them, he
replied that they were alraid to attempt
it, as the outlaws were always heavily
armed and known to be desperate men,
who would never be taken alive, 'and
who would make it unhealthy for any
arresting psrty.
Until last Thursday night Schrec City
boasted as fine a flouring mill as could be
found anywhere in the Sttite. It was
owned by Mr. Chas. Singer, and was val
ued atJSlS.OOO" On the night mentioned,
the torch was applied to this mill, and it
was consumed to ashes. The citizens
of Sebice believe and assert that the
James boys are guilty of the ar.-on. But
the burning oC the mill was not the worst
of it. The down freight twin Irom Hen
derson, which passes Sebree City between
1 and 2 o'clock a. m., ran over the body of
ad lying across the track near the
burnt mill. The train was stopped, and
it was discovered that the boy was dead
ami cold. Although terrible mangled by
the wheels of the train, not a drop of
blood exuded from the severed and lacer
ated veins. An examination showed that
the corpse was that ol Samuel Scott, who
lived in the vicinity of Singer s mill,
aud that he had been murdered and
placed upon the track. It is believed
there that this murder was also accom
plished by the James boys; that Scott
came upon them while firing'the mill,
and that, acting upon the axiom "that
dead men tell no tales," they made sure or
Ii is silence by murdering him, and then
placed the body of their victim upon the
track in front of the coming train, in
order to produce the impression that he
came to his death from Icing run over by
the cars. Our informant, who is a gen
tleman of veracity, and who came up on
the passenger train Saturday, from Se
bree City, firmly believes that the James
boys are in that neighborhood, and that
the arson and murder of Thursday and
Friday night were their work. Webster
county, and the adjacent portion of Hen
derson county, were tluir old "stamping
ground'' before the family removed to
Missouri, the "boys" having been born
and raised in Henderson county, and
there are hundreds of citizens of both
counties who know them well. We hope
the authorities will look into the matter
and ascertain if the desperadoes nre among
us sure enough, and, if they are. take
measures to promptly and effectually ex
terminate them before they can accom
plish any further devilment.
Since the above was put in type, wc
have learned some additional particulars j
about them. Ad. Young, the Deputy
Sheriff" of Henderson county, recently
came out to Kobards' Station with a
posse after the Jameses. Young saw
them aud he knew them well and
didn't attempt to take them, for obvious
reasons. A few days before the burning
of Singer's mill, a constable and posse
ivent out from Sebree City to capture
them, it being understood that rewards
aggregating $7,000 are offered for them
in Missouri. They came in sight ofthem
in an open iield. The Jameses sent one
of their number in speaking distance of
the posse, who warned them not to inter
fere with them (the Jameses). "You
arc armed with shotguns," said the
spokesman; "we have Henry rifles. We
don't want to hurt you; we can and will
kill the last one of you before you could
get close enough to use your guns, for we
don't propose to be taken. Now, you go
back and let us alone, and we w ill not in
terfere with you." And the constable
and his men, thinking discretion the bet
ter part of yalor, did return to Kcbree
City without effecting the capture, having
taken the outlaws at their word.
Dr. X. J. Berry.
The Republican Slate Convention last
Thursday, put Dr. W. J. Berry, of this
place, on their ticket for State Treastitcr.
The Doctor will add considerable strength
to the ticket, and will get a good vote in
all this section of the State. He has
been in politics more or less all his life,
and has never jet been beaten. "Dick"
Tate had better look out, for no man
alive can beat Dr. Berry electioneering,
lie is now State Senator from this dis
trict, elected as a Republican, and the
district had at the time of his election a
Democratic majority of at least S00 votes.
The Doctor has not been as proscriptive
as some politicians of his party, and has
voted for his special friends frequently,
egardles- of politics.
A little fracas occurred in the jail the
other cening between three prisoners
named respectively, Chinn, Allen and
Hines. It seems that Allen had been
trying to pick a quarrel with Chinn and
Hines, but they bore it all until he be
gan to insult them, when they mounted
his carcass, and gave him "a dressing
down," bruising his head a little, but
nothing serious resulted.
Solomon Likens was up before his
honor, I. II Luce, Iat Friday, charged
with breach of the peace, and was fined
$5 and lodged in jail. lie itftcruards re.-
I plevicd and was released.

Dr. II. Baldwin, Dentist, returned
yesterday, and will heat the Crow House
for a few d.-iy.s; call and have yont teeth
fixed up right. The Doctor's work is not
surpas-ed by any dentii-t in the State.
The ca-e ofthe commonwealth against
Sampson Duke, charged with wounding,
maiming, and killing hogs belonging to
Mrs. Sullenger, was tried on Wednesday,
and lie was lined ?2-j, which lie paid. A
similar case again't him was continued
Amos Gan, of color, charged with
stealing a pair of boots, was tried on
Thursday last and acquitted. He was
tried for the same oficnee last court and
found guilty, but his attorneys picked a
ll iw in the indictment, and he got a new
trial, with the above result.
Brad. Crow was tried on Wednesday
last, before the Circuit Court, and convic
ted of assault with inte'it to shoot He
was fined ten dol lars, and failing to
pay or replevy, committed to jail, to piy
it in imprisonment at two dollars per day.
T. R. I'owe was indicted at the last
term of the Circuit Court, for failing to
keep a road in order. His case came up
for trial last Thursday. He answered,
and plead his own defense, and made a
very clever argument, but the Judge
couldn't see it, and fined him $10. Tom
said he was not able to employ a lawyer,
and would not do it if he was able. He
believed in every man doing all his own
work.
A .'arI 1'roiu Mr. Case.
Mr. John L Case has withdrawn from
The Herald Publishing Company, and
gone to Hawesvillc to take a position in
theofiiccof the Plaindeahr, of that place.
Mr. Case is a sober. Christian gentleman,
a good printer, and bears with him our
best wishes for his future prosperity. He
bids farewell to Hartford in the following
card:
Although I have not had nny connec
tion with the editorial department of The
Ilr.it.u.D, I cannot refrain from returning
to the kind and social citizens of Hart
ford and vicinity my heart-warm thanks
for the hoxpitable treatment that I have
received at your hands during my short
sojourn in your mid-t. Though we never
hope to live in Hartford again, the people
we have known here will long be remem
bered, and days spent with them will
ever be a bright spot on memory's tablet,
ltespectfully, Jous L. Case.
KtratJon, the Horse Thiol:
II. F. Strntton was brought before
the Circuit Court last Saturday, charged
with horse-stealing, and, plcnding guilty,
was sentenced to three years in the peni
tentiary. He will be remembered bv our
readers as the man who stole Dr. Glenn's
horses, of which we gave an account at
the time of his arrest. In this connection
wc take pleasure in correcting a state
inent we then gave regarding his capture.
II. II. Glenn, A. S. Allgood, and H.
M. Austin pursued and came tipn the
prisoner near Hartford, and captured the
horses but let Stratton escape. From
what wc heard of it at the time, we re
flected on the courage and judgment of
these men, but we are now satisfied, from
hearing all the facts, that they did all
under the circumstances that could have
been done by any set of men. Their
horses were unmanageable by reason of
he firing of the pistols, young Glenn's
horse was shot and wounded, and Strat
ton jumped oll'and ran into a thicket,
and soon was out of sight. But they
scoured the woods for some time before
taking the hor-cs captured to Mr. Tay
lor's. We think great credit is due H.
M. Austin for ser ices in hunting down
and ferreting out horse-thieves. He has
done more in this line than any other
man in the Green River country.
BEAVER DAM ITEMS.
Beaver Dam, Ky., May IS.
We have had a fair trade for the week
past, from persons passing through to
and from Circuit Court. Those Irom a
distance had heard how cheap we sell
goods, and could not resist the temptation
to purchase.
A KIMIIXQ PARTY.
A party cf gentlemen arrived from
Louisville here last week, and took hacks
lor sonic point on Green Itivcr, to enjoy
themselves for a short time fishing.
They were fully prepared for camp life,
and were anticipating a gay time.
AN ERRONEOUS REPORT.
A rumor has gone forth that the citi
zens ofthis place have established a Sun
day School for the colored population.
This is altogether a mistake, and I trust
tho-e who have been so informed will
notice the correction. It is true that in
a lonely little hut about.two miles from
here, and near the Taylor Coal Mines, a
Sunday School is being taught, the
teachers being composed entirely of white
men and women, but only one ofthe num
ber resides at this place, and he being a
government officer, I suppose there is
nothing wrong in it. We find upon en
quiry that the house is situated in a
plea-ant place for the business, there be
ing plenty of shade, and a current of air
always passing to carry the scent off", and,
besides, it is remote from the noise and
bustle of the btiy world. It was once
the home of the. distinguished colored
gentleman, Hon. Arm-tstead Berry, who,
becoming weary of country life, disposed
ol his property and located in the heart
of Beaver Dam. It was afterwards the
habitation of a ttry nri-tocratic gentle-I
man of the darker hue, hut gome matri- j
muniul infelicities invaded his hitherto I
happy home, causing his better-half to
I seek a more congenial soul. N hat be
came ofthe husband I know not, but he
doubtless wandered to some foreign land,
like others before him have done, and
passed away with no friendly hand to
smooth his dying billow, and leaving no
name to be engraved upon his tombstone.
We enquired of one of the scholars the
other day how the school was progress
ing. "Oh. sir," said he, "wc arc lamin'
lots, for them tluir white folks are so
mighty good to u, that we jist can't
help but larn; they jist have a whole
heap of prayin'; and they pint out to us
whar to read, and I jist tell you they air
so kind anil good to us, that we all luve
'em mighty well, you bet." They all
seen: to be anxious to learn, and we nre
glad they are prospering so well; but the
citizens of Beaver Dam want it known
that they take no stock in it. All white
people wish them well, but like to see
teachers and scholars of the same color,
which is also the wish of many colored
people. Some do not attend, nor permit
their children to.
would be all right by Monday. We met
several of the farmers in town, who In
formed us that a large quantity of tobic-
co plants of fair size were on hand, and
would soon be ready to set out. Wheat
there, and all along the road, looked well.
We trust they will have a general good
crop. The ride gave us a ravenous appe
tite, so we called on the gentlemanly
clerk Mr. J. W. Cooper of the Tilford
House, for dinner, which he furnished us
in abundance. They know how to feed
the hungry. We were highly entertained
for a few hours by the belle ofthe town,
Miss Emma W , who favored us with
some of the sweetest nm-nc that we ever
listened to. Wc also met the accom
plished Miss Jennie T., of Caney ville,
looking as gay as ever.
A JOD THE STORM GAVE 'EM.
Quite a number of our farmers have
been busy for a week rebuilding the
lenccs blown down by the wind on last
Saturday week, which was more dam
aging than wai at first supposed.
THE COLDEST DAY.
Some think last Saturday was the
coldest fifteenth of May we have had for
several years. Jc.no.
FROM CANEYVILLE.
Caney vi r.LE, Ky., May 17.
The farmers of this vicinity arc at last
done planting corn, nnd a great deal of
the young corn is peeping forth and looks
well, considering the many cold days and
nights it has had to battle with.
LEFT DISCONSOLATE.
The beautiful and accomplished Miss
Calista Bruncr, of Spring Lick, spent a
few days in town last week, visiting
Iriends. But now that she has returned
home with the good wishes of her many
friends, Jap. and Henry arc again kft
seemingly alone in the world.
PREPARING FOR THE SUCKIFICE.
W. J. Wilson, an old bachelor ol this
place, purchased a house and lot in South
Caneyvillo a few days ng", and your cor
respondent is patiently awaiting for the
day to come when he will cat some cake
and have the pleasure of recording a
nedding.
CANDIDATES
are becoming numerous in this section,
AlreadyGrayson county lias four aspirants
for the Legislature, and another one is
spoken of.
THE CiRAVSONCO TEMPERANCE CONVENTION
met nt this place on Saturday, the 8th
inst,but, greatly to the disappointment
of all, G. W. Bain was not present to ad
dress the people as per appointment It
was illness that caused his non-appearance.
A good scries of resolutions were
adopted, nnd an excellent dinner was
spread, and, in fct, the whoe affair was
a pleasant one. H. C Butler was elect
ed President, and J. T. Neal was elected
Secretary of the county for one year.
The convention adjourned to meet at
Leitchfield on the first Saturday in Octo
ber next.
AN INSTINCT OF TnE CRITTER.
Never were we so sensibly struck with
the fact that newspaper reporters were
such a heartless and unfeeling class of
people, until we witnessed a mule run
ning away with a man on his back a few
days since, and using every exertion to
free himself of his buiden, when lo! we
were struck with the happy hope that
that mule would throw him, and thereby
furnish us an item of some importance
for the Herald, but our hopes were cut
short by him sticking to the animal and
coming out all safe. Such is life.

ATTENTION,
THE ADYANCE!
This machino standi in merit fir ahead of all competitors. Iu fact there is no machine
fit to bo called its competitor. We havo improved this machine very much daring the past
scar, preserving however, the many points of excellence which hare made it sod servedly
popular in the past. We have replaced the Diablo Wooden Frame by a single one, sub
stituting for the Auxiliary Frame an iron dra:; bar, thus making the machine much lighter
and handsomer, without lessening its strength and durability. and at the same tin.e retaining
all the advantages of the Double Frame. We have also improved the Raking apparatus, and
we have now the bet Rake wo haro ever made, which U equivalent to saying that we have

saves money by doing it, for the following reason":
1st. Because, being a strong and durable machine, it will outlast at least two of any oth

2nd. Because, by its eCcient work, it will have saved during its use hundreds of bushels
of grain that wuuld have been lost with any other Reaper.
3d. Because, bein always reliable and doing its work under all circumstances. It will
hare saved his own and his binders' time, to say nothing of the saving of annoyance and trou
ble. The best is always the eh,apcst.
