little meeting, In which it was deter

from Oen. Wolfonl, in which the gal

"I-wm a candidate for Clerk of the
Court of Appeals because I wanted
theioffice. I went before tho Conven
tioa L&ause I had CMifWeaco in the
democratic party. I was defeated, as
a docca other good, democrats were.
Capt. Henry was nominated aad it is
right for nie to support him. If any
one'votedBfatfestlae. because I wm a
Union soldier, it was wrong. If a
combination was formed between Hen
ry, Poore aad .Gaines, it was not
quite right. If there is a settled de
termination on tho part of any great
number of Confederates not to voto
for, aod'eject'any Union man to office,
it is wrong and ought to be corrected.
Iwilt h'dver ceasfi to' 'bo' thankful to
my- friends, both Union and Confed
erate, fur their earnest and warm sup
port of me in the Convention." This
waij pretty cold comfort, and settles
the matter so .fr as 'the General is
coaceMteji. He' u a democrat because
he believes in the principles of that
party, and wilt not go off with any
faction looking to it overthrow.

. AtriKE broke out in the old World

Maj. J. M. Wkiuht, of Louisville,

Buell's staff during the war and serv

John Siikrman's three percent,

from Ml, Vernon to the Omrier-Jtvr-nal
nominates Judge M. H. Owsley,
of Lancaster, as a candidate for Gov
ernor, and whilo ho pays him many
high compliments, none are over
drawn or undeserved. We would like
to see the highest office In the State
filled again by a gentleman that wnHld
do honnr and crtdit to it, and we
know of no man in tho Slate who
would fill the bill better than Judgo
Owsley. He is popular wherever he

John D. Whitk, on being attack
ed by a repiihllhan paper at Mays
ville, wrote to the proprietor that he
would "please take not umbrage. I
am not mad. It is to the redeeming of
the 10th Cong. Ky. Dist. I am look
ing, and haro no timo to give to dead
Leals from Ohio." By tho way, how
did Johnnie D. stand oh tho Danville
P. O. question. We sincerely hope
that he did not regard one dear friend
Murphy as "a dead-beat from Ohio."
Hknry, Gaines & Co. will make
tho man Jacob wish that a mill ttene
were about his neck, and that he was
cast into the sea, before they get
I through with him. He will probably
get a few democrats who are un
worthy of the name to vote for him,
and possibly tho republican party;
but he stands about as much chance
for election to the Clerkship or the
Court of Appeals, as he does to he
tho Czar of Russia.
Some Solon, won by the bewitch
ing brown eyes of our accomplished
State Librarian, has introduced a bill
to increase her salary from $1,000 to
81,500. We admit that Mrs. Cook k
worth every cent of the money, but
does it not strike the average legisla
tor that to pay $1,500 to lake care ot
$500 worth ot books, is quite too much
pork for a shilling ?
Oscah L. Baldwin, the defaulting
Newark cashier, has been sentenced
to fifteen years' confinement in the
Penitentiary. Considering that he
stole $2,500,000, this is a very light
sentence; only one year for every
$160,666.663 of the amount stolen.

Now Indeed do we feel it our duty to

all right for a while. It waa nice enough for
the young folk to assemble twice a week
and skate In time with the harmony of aweet
sound. We even bore with a degree of
composure the establishment of a private
rink for the Masonic College. We heard,
without uttering a syllable of reproach
that four or five young ladies -had charter
ed a large room In a private dwelling for
another rink. We listened without even a
cusa word to (he constant roll, roll, of
akatea on every back porch on Ml. Vernon
Avenue. We saw grave lawyers tumble
without dignity. We saw Mr. O. II Wad
dle, with eyes ablate, fista clenched, sweep
towards the floor aa if pouncing on an uii'
fortunate juror. We saw our friend, Mr.W,
B. Pettus, time after, gratify the curiosity
of the crowd by sitting gracefully on the
floor and raising his feet lo display his fine
pair of skates. We saw all this without a
murmur. But now that Mr John 8. May,
the child of many winters, from whose
head kind time has lifted lis burden, when
he appears on skates, and his glistening
head shines like a star In the front ranks,
then we kick, and say the country is in a
craze, and that our town trustees should
pass a perpetual Injunction.
