Idgo to be ono oi the greatest executive

for his admiration of Rovorldcs. The

Tm employes of tbeetato penitentiary
lately purchased a gold watch and pro
tented it to the late warden, Alaj. A. W.
Edwards. Tho major may have been a
very kind matter, but that he was a war-den-so
faithful in tho diichargoof hit du
ties that be deserved aoy kind of a gift, wo
don't believe. Ho wai, in truth, a very
peculiar officer very.
The 'State Regiilor' does not ondorte
the 'State Journal,' which it tad. Tho
'Journal' denounced tho farmcrt as bum
mer and clatiod them with horto thieves
because tbey had the impudence to vote
gainst and defeat Lawrence. The 'Reg
ister' called the farmers foolt and other
pet namt of that kind ; but tho 'Register'
refuses to call them thieves, etc. Tho
'Register' goes only hall way. Tho 'Jour

A correspondent of a St. Louis paper
says tho latest style of ladles' dresses in
France is no gloves, no corsott, and no
waists. Tho correspondent gives a de
scription of tho toilets of tho ladios at a
woddlcg party in Now York city. A
dozen of tho bridal party were photo
graphed, and the correspondent declares
that if the were to send a copy of tho pho
tograph to Connecticut the would not only
be prayed for, but bo liable to indictment
for tending indecent pictures by mail.

pistol in his pocket. Tbo 'Snllno County
Register' mado the Incident public by pub
Mining the facts of the occurence, and in
explanation of Lavello't practice ot carry
ing concoaled weapons, said ho was sus
pected of insanity. Lavelle Immediately
ruihod into print donying insanity, and
giving as an item of testimony to prove
bis denial, tho statemont that ho is a Dem
ocrat. Tho '.Register' replies that tho
plea of Democracy is not good. Although
tajt tho 'Register', Democrats aro as a

to that rule.
A Memphis letter-writer to a Georgia

JeiTrson Davis, and then rushes into print
with some rccolectlons of tho past and ro
flections on the preiout of both of which
the ex-president of tho Southern Cunfudor
acv is the maln'tuUhct. The letter-writer
who clairat to be a very old one
but wntet like a very young

of ad vertity hurled from tho

How it it ponible that a man who
labort in abject povorty for

aervant to waitbehiud his chair and black

' the oppreslons" which Mr. Davis "with

"We are inclined to believe this aged

Cced truth to rhetoric in his remarks on
the ex-pretident of the Confederacy.
