The Joncsboro 'Gaiollo' truthfully

r -We thing, an anonymous letter. ITo

wn weanncM ia doing so, and is an
epitoao of thoso baser passions, malieo

tra ao, yorthy to wear tho form of
Htaahood, will, if ho has a just or fan
cied mom of grievance, slato it boldly
'and back it by thonamo his parents

A aensatioa in railroad circles was
created in this place Tuesday morning
by the railroad engine, John II. Ober
ly running off of tho turn-tablo and
striking its snoot into mother earth.

mBoatsthiag naart, says this accident
b symbolic of tho condition of the orig
inal Jobs H. Oberly Irimsolf. Ho
thinks John has run off of tho turn-fa-ble
in politics and stuck his snoot in
the eround. and for want of frinmlH
will never get on tho track again for
uusgrcai or any ming CISC
This incident has rnado us gloomy, and
and the remarks of tho 'Indopondant'
has cast us into tho Slongh of Despond'.
But it was always thus from childhood's
how; we novor.had any thing named
after tu but it was sure to run off
omelhing and stick its noso iu tho
TnB Buell libel, case in. Washington
bids fair to be ono" of considerable in
terest. Basil is a newspaper corrcs
.posdent who stated, in a dispatch to
BuYptfer, that Senator Chandler had
been drunk ia tho Sonato Chamber and
had been laid out on a sofa in tho cloak
room. A Senator of tho United States
has a right to get drunk if he wants to,
and to bo mado comfortable on a sofa
ift'the cloak room, but no newspaper
correspondent has a right to take notes
of the occurrence and print them. If
he does, it is a libel and ho must Btand
the consequences. Buell will have
trial before. Judge Sucll's polico court,
and tho warrant against him was drawn
up under tho old alion nnd sedition
laws whioh aro now obsolete, and tho
authority for the procedure is derived
. from the. common law, uudor which no
conviction can pa uau in sucii a case
without the interposition of a jury
Altogether, tho caso promises to bo
one of store than usual interest, an in
tenet. BOt confined to tho world of
newspapers and correspondents. IJpn.
Jero Black and Hon. Montgomery
Blair will defend Buell.
THK 8TATE PRINTING.

'the l action of tho State, then to dotcr-
saiao whether in my opinion the inter
ests ot tho State would bo better scrv
ed by sot avoiding tho same ?
3 And should tho latter conclusion
be reached, yos. then direct my atten
tion to the items in tho report of tho
PriBtfeg Committee purporting to bo
overcharges of the contracts for public
praaung above tho maximum rates nro
iwtfs4 by law, and request ray advico
JWpiying. to tho first question, Jlr.
jsaeaii aeelded that it would bo uuwisc,
in jiew of all the circumstances, to at
tempt' to declare tho contract void; aud
sua, replies to all tho questions jus
tiftta the roport of tho majority of tho
BosM Msnmittee on printing, made by
'la. that report the position was taken
' tit tt weild not bo wiso to declare tho
contract void, although tho combina
tion to prevent competition mado it
voidable. The committee held that the
contract had been recognized by the state
evs if thk faot was not a waivor of
tht'Blsie's right to declare the con
traet void,' ihe courts and not the legis
lattiN sheald decide "tho question ;
4 that, em if tl legUhUurs coald make
the eeatnet void, it would be unwise to
do so, the contract having noarly ex
pired and there being no means pro
peribed by law for n re-lotting of work
that must of a necessity bo douo, and
which could not bo constitutionally
dono unless let to tho lowest responsi
ble bidder in accordanco with the pro
visions of law. Tho Attorney-General
justifies tho wisdom of this conclusion ;
nnd, on every other point, agrees with
tho committee in tho construction givon
by tho committeo to the law.
Tho radical party is in great dis
tress. Tho blundering of congress and
tho administration has created a senti
ment of opposition that has dovolopod
into grangorisin ; tho mouthing of tho
Christian statesmen, who have talked
about the goodness of God and tho
beauty of "virtuo and temperance while
they robbed with busy tlngcrp, bus
driven away from tho party many good
men ; nnd tho sentiment of the pirty
which encourages tho idea that tho gov
eminent has n right to toll tho citizen
what ho shall or shall not drink or cat
tho idea of paternalism has lopped off
from tho radical true the front Gorii'"
vraacn nun thrown tho Iruit it
into the lap of tho opposition party.
Last week tho republican State com
mitteo met at Chicago for consultation,
and to devieo ways and means to con-
tmuo tho dominant party in power in
Mr. llcsing has .been heretofore n
radical of tho mast ultra kind. In his
way ho is a great man, nnd exercises
wonderful influence in Chicago.
Among tho Gcrmaus ho is n dictator.
His advico is law to thousands of Ger
man voters. It is not too much to snv
ho holds tho State of Illinois in his
breeches pocket. IIo is tho balance of
power botweon tho two great parties.
Ah ho votes tho Stato votes.
Tho republican state committeo,
awaro of Mr. nosing's great influence,
to placato him requested him to attend
tho sittings of tho committee. Tho
"dictator" is on obliging gentleman.
Ho accepted tho invitation. After tho
consultation had reached tho point when
was in order tho discussion of the qucs
tion : "What shall tho republican party
do to bo saved ?" Mr. Hosing was re
quested to speak. His accommodating
disposition compelled him to respond.
Ho did speak ; and his words rang in
tho cars of thoso who heard him liko
tho funeral knell of radicalism in Illi-
llcforo ho could advisa whether a
Stato convention should bo held, ho
said, ho must first ask if there is a re
publican party in this country V This
was a stunner, and nearly all tho mom-
bcrs of tho coinmitteo looked nt him
with reproachful eyes, as if to say :
You aro cruel to propound such a
connuudruin at this time." Ho went on
and denounced tho republican party in
bitter terms. It had been unfaithful
to its pledges, and was no longer enti
tled to tho confidcuco of tho people
"You havo," ho shouted, "kicked out
of your party 100,000 Germans." "Tho
men you elected to tho legislature, are,"
he cried, "moral cowards i they lravo
not tho courage to voto against temper
ance laws." "Look," ho screamed, "at
your great moral leaders, and eco tho
results of n course of deceit. There
was Colfax. Ho was tho most immac
ulate saint of them all. Ho lias been
proved a hypocrite, perjuror and vil
lain ! All tho republican leadcrsjjare
just as bad as Colfax ?"
And thus tho German Dictator went
on, striking hard blows at tho radical
party every tiino ho uttered a word.
Tho hand writing is on tho wall, and
soon the republican party (tho Demo
crats being wi80 unto thoir own salva
tion) will bo turned out to grass.

Tho miners then lost their compensa

tho proportion lost to tho miners by tho
changing of tho screen, amounts to a
reduction of twenty-fivo per cent.

Williamson county has been the
scetio of almost another murder. Tl o
desperadoes sccin to havo a mituia for
waylaying and shooting almost any
body. The circumstances of tho last
attempt, as near us we can learn, arc as
loiiows : jiio iir. Jlod, livmu in-or
near Hcrrin's prairie, attended n sale
sonic distance lroin home, so that it was
nearly dusk before he returned. It
sooihh that by crossing a farm of tho
i.u .tuiiiu huvo considerable
travel. lie had proceeded but a sllort
distanco when ho saw, as ho supposed,
tho body of n man lying near tho road,
thinking that tho man had been mur
dered, nnd started toward him, when
tho supposed dead body began firing at
mm, snooting Jam through both thighs.
Mr. Hod thinks it was a stranger lying
in wait for somo of tho Hendersons.
Wo would suggest that Williamson
county be placed under martial law. for
Tho Joncsboro 'Gazctto' of yester
day, speaking of tho coming contest
for congress in this district, says
Judge Crawford will in no event ac
cept tho nomination for congress. Ho
could have been easily elected two years
ago ; but ho preferred to remain on tho
judicial bench. Tiik Bulletin of

Mound City, and Mr. Hartzcll, of Han

Oberly, positively declines to carry out

quuliiicntiou can bo induced to accept
tno nomination. JNo individual or lo

Tho 'Gazette' speaks tho words of
