THE LEGISLATIVE CANVASS.
At the Sulphur Springs" pie-nic last
Saturday, Sam. E. Him., esq., of our
town, announced himself .i candidate
to represent Ohio county in the next
General Assembly. This throws the
canvass into a muddle from which the
County Democratic Committee mav
experience some difficulty iu extricating
the party, tlie election being so close nt
hand that it will be impossible to call
a convention, nominate Mr. Hill in
form, and send him out as the chosen
standard-bearer of the party to canvass
the county. Wc have had two candidates
in the field for several months one
formally nominated by the County
Council of his party, and the other
claiming to be an Independent, what
ever that is. Of course no one doubted
that the Radicals would place a cham
pion in the field, and now wc have him
in the person of Dr. Meadoh. The
regularly nominated candidate of the
Patrons of Husbandry, prior to his ad
hesion to the new party, was a Demo
crat, and, wc understand, claims still to
belong to the Democratic organization.
This claim, coupled with the fact that
he is a gentleman of irreproachable
character, will secure him the support
of many Democrats who would other
wise stand staunchly by a nominee.
As the case now stands, Mr. Hill has
no stronger claim upon the suffrages of
those Democrats who do not recognize
the Patrons as a political organization
than Mr. Hocker, from the simple
fact that, in the absence of a nomination
by a regularly constituted convention
of the party, one Democrat is as free to
offer for office as another. The Coun
ty Committee, whose duty it is to guard
the interests of the party, and prevent
such a state of affairs as at present exist,
has neglected that duty, and it doesn't
require much of a prophet to foretell
the result. Howe we do not count in
the race, as he has no following; Hill
and Hocker will divide the Demo
cratic vote; the Radicals will vote sol
idly for Meadoh, and that nag will
come out under the winning-string a
length or two ahead of the foremost of
his competitors. And the Democracy
of Ohio county will have their apathet
ic Executive Committee to thank for
being represented in the next Legisla
ture by a Radical.
P. S. Since the above was iu type
the candidates met (last Monday) at
the courthouse to discuss the issues be
fore the people. 'Squire Itowi: with
drew from the track, which leaves
Messrs. Hill and Hocker to divide
the Democratic vote, and thus assure
an easy victory to Dr. Meadoh, who,
notwithstanding the declaration of
leading Radicals to the contrary, is a
candidate, and whose name will be
put on the poll-books sis surely as elec'
tion day rolls around. They have con
cocted a neat scheme to distract and di
vide the Democracy that they may reap
victorv from our dissensions. Let us not
suffer ourselves to be hoodwinked bv
them. "Wc confess that we would have
preferred a fair and square stand-up
fight against all opposition. This could
only be done with an" hope for success
under the lead of a regularly nomina

now. IJierc is but one wav left us to
frustrate the success of the cunningl
devised coup dc guerre of the enemy, and
that is if both HocKEit and Hill
continue oji the track for the Dcmoc

upon that one of these two gentlemen

THE PA D VCAII HERA LD REDIV-IVUS-A
We are in regular receipt of the Pa"
ducah Daily Herald, which has been re
vived by Col. John C. Noble, and
takes the place of the defunct Kentucl:
ian. Of course the Herald will become
a power in. the party, for Col. N. is
one of the foremost political writer in
the Suite. He hxs ever been an un
swerving Democrat, and proved liiin
self in many a hard-fought and desper
ate contest a fearless, sagacious and
trustworthy leader. Wc gladly wel
come him back to active service, and
hope in the years to come to march by
his side to many a glorious victory.
As wc hastily glance back to a quar
ter of a century ago, when we first
donned the editorial harness, of all who
then constituted "the fourth estate" in
Kentucky, John C. Xoble's battle-
scarred figure is the only one wc can
recognize of the "Old Guard" in the
ranks of to-day. Let's sec: Collins,
of the Maysvillo iiwc, is dead. . Pike,
of the Maysville Flag, is dead. Lind
sey, of the Mt. Sterling ttliig, is dead.
Wickliffe, of the Lexington Observer
& Remrter, is dead. Taylor, of the
Lexington Stalctman, went to St. Louis.
French, of the Georgetown Herald, is
dead. Lyle and Walker, of the Paris
Citizen, arc both dead. Atkinson, of
the Cvnthiana Acics, is dead. Camp
bell, of the Covington Journal, is dead
Finnell, of the Covington Regkler, is
dead. Zimmerman, of the Danville
Tribune, is out of the business. Gib
BONf, of the HarrodsbiirgU2ot((fr.Z)
is dead. Tanner, of the Frankfort
Yeoman, is dead. Morehead, of the
Frankfort Commomceatlh, is dead, and
Col. Hodges is out of the business.
Middleton, of the Shelbyville JYcirs,
is out of the business. Prentice,
Penn, and Harney, of the Louisville
press, are all dead. IIuTcnnN, of the
Henderson Reporter, is dead. Rue A,
of the Russellville Herald, is out of the
business. And so on down the entire
line. And of all the old familiar faces
of twenty-five years ago, that of Col
Noble is the only one that greets our
vision. And of all the political leaders
of that day, whoso plumes we all fol
lowed or opposed in the fight, but one
survives, the venerable Archie Dixon,
ot Henderson. Alack-a-day! time is
indeed a whirligig, and right glad are
wc that, witli all its changes, the Pa-
ducah Herald and its gallant editor, un
scathed and undaunted, arc still con
spicuous iu the vanguard of the army
of constitutional liberty.
A Callioon man, who doesn't belong
to the temperance society, found
twenty-four foot snake coiled around
his wife's neck the other night, as he
was about to get into bed. Springing
back he seized a chair and tried to
knock the serpent off. For the space
of half an hour the neighbors thought
they were manufacturing earthquakes
in that house. He rs confined to his
bed, and regales sympathizing visitors
with the particulars of an imaginary
wrestle with a mule's heels, while his
wife dances about the house with a
strip of court-plaster on her chin, a
springy step, sparkling eyes, and every
once in a while a motion of her elbows
as though she were about to flop her
wings and crow the cock-a-doodlc-doo

"Backward,turn backward.Timc in your
flight," is a sentiment that often finds a
resting place in our hearts.
For the long ago, with its shadows and
lights mellowed by distance, is fairer and
sweeter than things which the present only
half reveal. How often wc hear it mur
mured: "If it could be as it was long ago,
how much happier would I be how dif
ferent would be my life! If I could but
recall my childhood, and live my life ovci
again, I would control my acts and deeds
so as to render the remainder of my days
happy and peaceful."
"We often bear the drunkard speak of

the praise and honor of a noble father.

when the last ties that bound her heart to

The Wnmlcriiig Judge.
South Cauroli.ton, Kr., July 5.
Editor Heralp: In Louisville Central
Park, it so happened that we observed
man who- assumed the appearance of
Hartford Judge. We said a man well
he did have some ot the features of a man
but be more resembled a brewery, for his
beer capacity is unsurpassed by a hogs
The Judge had a couple of kegs of his
favorite "picnic water" emptied iuto his
elephantine stomach, and then began to
Eensibly realize the beat of the day. Ap
proaching some of his more experienced
"puss-gut" friends, he asked if beer ever
clabbered and "went back on a fellow?
They replied that it would ferment and boil
over if exposed to excessive heat. Where
upon the Judge purchased a hogshead of
ice-water and had his unlimited bowels
well bathed, and then took lone passage
on a street-car for Hambcrgcr's, to get
further information in regard to hisstom
ach. Having returned from the Park, we
felt a curiosity to know the result of th
two kegs of beer, and followed the Judge'
footsteps to Hambcrger's. There bat th
Judce. niakins a btrance noise. I first
thought he was braying for Will Hay
celebrated jack. This seemed perfectly
natural to him. It next seemed that he
was imitating that renowned goat. One
would have thought him a "Billy" by
birth, his mimicry was so perfect. We
ftcrwards learned that the Judge only
had one of those severe cases of hiccoughs
that wc have on certain occasions. We
ritly hope the Judge has recovered from
the hiccoughs, and especially from that
nervous debility which caused him, at
Millwood, on Saturday, to overturn the
plate from which a South Carrollton Pro
fessor was enjoying a delicious dinner.
Judge we hope we may meet again on
St. John's day, and dine together once
more at Millwood.
