SOME PLAIN TALK ON A DELI-
Last week our Cnncy ville correspond
ent told us of the whipping of four wo
men of looc morals near his town by
disguised persons. That was all wrong.
The parties who most deserved the mer-cilc.-s
beating these wretched outcasts
received, are the worthless men whose
patronage induced them to follow their
vile avocation. This thing of fallen
woman having to bear all the odium and
di-gracc, having to receive all the kicks
and culls, is radically wrong. It is an
outrage on justice.
The man who is the recipient of the
harlot's illicit favors is no better than
she is, and in nine eases out of ten is a
de'il sight the worst lot of the two. And
yet how many respectable fathers and
mothers permit the man whose vicious
habits are no secret to visit their homes
and associate with their daughters, when
they would close their doors against and
pass by with loftiest scorn the vile wo
man with whom he equalizes himself
just as much a he could possibly equal
ize himself with an honest wife, Is
there reason, justice, or virtue in such
discrimination betwixt those who are
equal partners in vice?
Whenever a father permits a libertine
to visit his daughter he invites her dis
honor. And the young woman who
fixes her affections upon such a man
courts the infamy that has banned and
damned the strumpet who shares his
unholy pleasures. These be plain words,
but then they arc the words of unvar
nished truth. They are words that
cannot be spoken too often or too loud
ly. They arc words which, had they
been spoken soon enough, mayhap
would have saved those four wretched
creatures up yonder in Grayson county
to lives of virtue and from the outrage
that was inflicted upon them yon night.
We will venture the assertion that
there are men in that neighborhood who
are men of family, who have wives and
grown-up daughters, who have sought
the company of these outcast women
for no good, aud yet, while their para
mours are scourged and driven from
the county, they are unmolested; they
are to be seen at church and met in re
spectable society; and, it may be, they
arc now applauding the cowardly and
unjust assault upon those defenceless
Wc are not the apologist for that sort
of women. Wc do not uphold them in
their vicious calling. We simply de
mand, while justice is afoot plying the
lash to the backs of evil-doers, that it be
not partial, but polish off the hc-strump-ots
n well as the she ones. If those
women were too foul to live in a decent
community, we contend that the men
who sought and enjoyed their favors arc
equally foul, and should have the same
punishment dealt out to them. The bad
man is not one whit better than the bad
woman, and we protest against her be
ing compelled to liear all the disgrace
aud stripes-and he permitted to go scot
free. That is all.
WANTED A DOG LAW.
This season, as it has been ever- sea
son for years past, the cry comes up
from the wool-growers that the dogs are
destroying all the sheep. It will besafe
to estimate the loss to Kentucky farm
ers from this cause, during the last ten
j-ears, at S100.000. A dozen good
sheep are of greater value than all the
dogs that have ever barked, howled,
and hajxtl the moon, since the first ca
nine was invented. Dogs, as a general
thing, are utterly useless on the face of
the earth. They eat more than they
earn, lliey ton not, neitner uo tney
spin, yet they live on the fattest mutton
in the land. They arc utterly destroy
ing a valuable industry. And when
they arc not killing sheep they are run
ning off and gorging themselves with
carrion, and then coming home and
stinking whole families half to death

A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVEN
The proposed convention to concoct
a new State constitution would cost the
people several hundred thousand dol
lars, and ptobably give ns a more ob
jectionable instrument than the present
one. The way of safety to the Ken
tucky tax-payer is to vote against the
propo-ition. It is true that there are
portions of the present constitution that
conflict with recent amendments to the
Federal constitution, and are therefore
null and void "dead letter," to speak
after the manner of the lawyers and
that there arc some other portions that
could be decided- improved upon; but
these defects can all be met and reme
died by amendments adopted by the
Legislature and submitted to the people
for adoption or rejection, at some gen
eral election, and all this without extra
AVe used to have a very good consti
tution, much superior to the present
one, but there were a lot of fellows in
the State who wanted office, who had
not the capacity to achieve it through
the then existing channels, in conse
quence of the constitution standing as
a barrier lietween them and the coveted
places; and they started the idea of a
new constitution, aud hammered away
at it until they induced the majority of
the people of Kentucky to believe that
their temporal and spiritual salvation
depended upon having a new constitu
tion. Well, they got one. anda precious
bargain it was. Every office in creation
was made elective, and there is no com
puting tho damage, pecuniary and oth
erwise, that lias resulted to the foolish
people from it. They cannot afford to
repeat the experiment. Let the pres
ent instrument be amended the super
fluoussections expunged and the object
ionable ones changed. This can all be
done without additional taxation, with
out the trouble and expense of a con
vention, and the old machine made a
rood as new.
COL. STODDARD JOHNSTON
Has reusmecl the editorial control of
the Yeoman, and will do valiant duty
in the service of the ticket presented by
the late convention. His recent can

Johnston Is yet a young man, in the

him to wrap his talents in a napkin and

will possess advantages he lacked this

they will call him into active and hon

Bcaver Dam, Kt., June 1st, 1875.
Editor IlEn.vi.ri: As the correspon
dent from this place to your valuable
paper, I feel it my duty at all times to
mention anything that your many renti
ers would likely be interested in.
Thinking that the coloretl Sunday
School, taught by white persons, would
be news to some, and having been request
ed to correct an erroneous report in re
gard to it, was the reason it was men
tioned in the items of the IStli inst
I 8im ply corrected the false report, and
gave the localitywhere the school is
I made no unkind allusion toward any
one, nor did I attack any one for impart
ing knowledge to the "poor negro.
Omega imagines however, that his
rights have been trampled on, and gives
uaa lengthy article in defense of hid priv
ilege to instruct the negro.
It is seldom we hear of a man defend
ing himself before he has been attacked,
but tis eorce times the case no doubt
that, "The wicked lee when none pur
sueth." We bad heard that the milling Professor
would reply to our item, but did not sup
pose one of bis ability would have to
quote trom your editorials, a Northern
Divine, and our own letter to frame a re
sponse. He accuses us of endeavoring to "mis
lead tfte public, and cast a stigma on
some most worthy people." Every one
knows this to be false, for we made no
such attempt. He desires to know why
we did not restore peace to the "unfortu
nate household" where "connubial infe
licities" reigned, When we embark in that
business, we trust we will be able to And
while peopleto employ our time, and
shall deputize him to preside over the
race of his choice. .
When he commenced his article, he
had "Juno" either a "he or "she," then
turned us to a "be" alone, and finally
mixed it up again ard found "Burn&ides"
on his face. The women want to know
if they have a right to wear Burnsides.
Doubtless his brain was a little intoxi
cated. And although we were permitted
to converse with a "Cromwell damsel,"
we would inform the great "Omega," that
she was undonltedly a white lady.
He eaye, I "tried bard to get in the
post oflicc, but failed." There is not one
word of truth in that. But if I should
try, I would notnc the means some have
to possess it. And had I tried and suc
ceeded, I assure him he never would have
been called upon "to record my noble
and self-sacrificing devotion, in the cause
of colored Sunday Schools;" for if that is
requisite, God forbid, that I ehould ever
become a Post Master!
And though he considers our "views
as narrow and contracted a the corporate
limits of Beaver Dam,-' they are still widr
enough to know that Omega means the
last, and he who reaches the last round of
society, can, if he so chooses, devote the
remnant of his days to a negro school
and have no fears whatever of "forfeiting
the good opinion of the citizens of Bea
ver Dam." And though he has as yet
eeen no "evil resultstherefrom," he may
see it, when one of the male scholars of
the school puts into execution the threat
that, "he is as free as any one, and that
be intends to visit the white ladies of the
lie will also see the benefit derived
from this christian act, when the charm
ing colored darling, realizes her expecta
tions, for she tays: "Dat yung teechur is
so putty, and so seet, dat I jist luve '1111
lit tu kill, an' I'm jist az free az he is,
for he larnes me how tu read, an' I'm
gwine to make 'im nolis me, I am; but
den he makes meeo jelus, for he looks at
de udder gerls, an' jist lads fit to kill."
He would argue with us from a chris
tian point of view, but fears be would be
"casting his pearls before swine." Judg
ing him from a christian stand point, we
do not think he would have many pearls
to cast He would not have "designing
men from the North and the East come
here to instruct the negroes." How do
we know where the present instructors
are from ? They have only been in the
county a short time, and wc do not find
a single one of our native citizens assist
ing in the institution. He "expects to
continue to instruct them whenever the
opportunity presents itself." The ques
tion is, does he not present himself to the
opportunity? He at last winds up with
the startling revelation, that without the
combined effort of the Caucasian and
African races, we can have no "bops of
education, domestic virtue, good citizen-
ship, and pure religion.''
Does the noble Omega imagine that he
can fill our minds with such ideas? It
is perfectly abfiird to think of. Just to
think for a moment, that we can have
none of thte accomplish nients without
the aid of the negro! He thinks they
must work together, but we leave it alto
gether to a man's taste.
But to the dear, kind friend (?) who
signs himself "Sunday School," must we
return our sincere thanks lor the compli
mentary manner in which he brings our
name be'oreyour readers.
He wants to know what "such gabble
mean-? and if we mean an insult to gov
ernment officials?" Why, my dear friend,
I am Mirpri-vft at sucu questions. We
said nothing unkind of any ollicials, only
mentioned that the oneat this p'ace, hav
ing a superabundance of philanthropy
dwelling in his heart, could not find a
class of nice little white children to in
struct, and was imparting christian
knowledge to the colored ones.
To this wc do not object, but bid him
go on in the work he hai begun, and add
star after star to his diadem. And, Most
Illustrious Sir, iftboti bast become of
fended, we crave thy majesty's pardon,
for our love toward government ollicials
is as pare as the "flowers that bloom in
their native purity around the isolated
dell, far from the haunts of man."
We have no doubt that our Post Mas
ter is a gentleman. No one has accused
him of being otherwise, and you seem to
know "that the school is being conducted
by some of the most respectable and high
toned people in and about Beaver Dam,"
and as he is the only one from here that
does assist, he must of course be a gen
tleman. We will take the advice of
"Sunday School" and become the "spon
sor of marriages" Ac. will hunt our "Lost
Merchant for he has gone strain and
endeavor, in our feeble way, to write
something that will interest the gentle
man. But if in the attempt we should
fail, will he kindly forgive us, and peruse
the other columns of The Herald?
Fearing, Mr. Editor, that we will con
sume too much of your valuable space,
we will bring our impromptu remarks
to a close, by simply adding, in which all
will agree with us, that the communica
tions of "Sunday School" and "Omega,''
were uncalled for, and but for which,
these lines. 01 even another word about
the school would never have been written.
We mentioned the school in our pre
vious items as we would mention anything
else. No unkind allusions were made to
any one; the substance of it was the cor
rection of an erroneous report; that the
citizens of this place had no stock in it;
and, I can truthfully assert they never
No attempts were made to educate
them while slaves, and after they have
been taken from tie, and declare them
selves to be our equals, if not our supe
riors, we have none of that christian re
ligion abounding in our souls that tells us
we ehould mingle with and instruct them.
For we believe there are enough of their
own color who are qualified, and would
be glad to learn them, and we further
more know that the colored people pre
fer a teacher ol their own color.
We have not become so degenerated
as some would have you think, for we en
courage education, religion, 4c, equally
as much so as they who would seek to
mislead your minds against us.
What we have written has not been
done with any malicious intent, nor in
half so unkind a manner as the two
named correspondents have attacked us.
Nor has it been written for' any further
controversy, but to show to all that Bea
ver Dam still lives, and shall ever defend
herself against the world. Jc.xo.

Dr. Ben. T. Marshall, who lived about
five miles wct of Greensburg, while out
hunting in company with his little nephew
accidentally discharged one barrel of his
shot-gun full in bis face, causing instant
death. He and his nephew were trying
to get a shot at a squirrel in a tree, and
the boy went round the tree to drive the
"quirrcl. While he (the boy) was on the
opposite side of the tree to Dr. Marshall
and out of his sight, he heard the Doctor's
gun fire, and also beard the falling of a
heavy body. He went immediately to
his uncle nnd found him drawing his last
breath. The unfortunate man had
evidently attempted to rest his gun on the
ground cocked, and the lock being in bad
condition, as was afterwards ascertained.
the gun fired, the entire contents entering
the doctor's face near the eye, passing out
at the back of his head and scatteriug his
brains in every direction. The whole
county is in mourning, for Dr. Marshall
was a man well known and universally
beloved, a popular and successful physi
cian, a kind and generous neighbor, and
a high-toned Christian gentleman. No
man in the county will be missed more
than Dr. Marshall, and his place will be
hard to fill. He leaves a most estimable
wife and many friends to mourn his
untimely death. Dr. Marshall was about

The Scarlet Lily.
A correspondent of an Oneida exchange,
writing from South Augusta, says: Miss
Adell Bartholomew, of this town, has a
rare house plant Icnown as the "king," or
" scarlet lily," which has made an aston
ishing growth during the coldest weather
of this winter. It started from the bulb
since New Year. The blades are now a
foot long, growing a double set, one on
each side of the stalk instead of a single
cluster on one side, as is the nature of thie
variety, while the blossom stem is at least
a foot high and already crowned with a
precocious bud. which wilt in a few days
expand into one of the most glorious
flowers of the lily family ever seen. On
one of those days when the thermometer
was scarcely 'long enough to mark the
degrees below zero, the stem grew three
fourths of an inch from 7 a. m. to 3 p. m.,
and from 7 a. m. on Sunday to 3 p. m
on. the following Tuesday, it grew five
inches. The plant blossoms the third
year from planting, then annually ,but dy
ing down to the bulb and having a brief
rest after each year's growth. The present
hud is the first this plant has produced
and comes far ahead ol the time in con
sequence of the remarkably rapid growth
of the whole plant in the brief time stated.
