For the Legttlature,
DB. J. . PJETTCS,
Of Orb Orchard.
Sometime ago, on the strength of a
statement made to ua by one of his intimate
friend and supporter, who said he got the
information from Gen. Backner hlmielf,
we published an article which has since
gone the entire rounds of tho State, filvinc
the generfil reascuj for using tobacco so
constantly which was because it had been
his solo companion for the 13 months that
he was in solitary confinement, had kept
him from ro'mr crazy and in sheer gratitude
he would not now desert the friend in
need, which had proven eo great a friend
indeed. We thought it was a beautiful little
story nod it made ua feel even more
klndlv towards the old ceneral than ever.
But he has thrown all tho fit in the fire by
saying to Col. Craddock, "I am glad you
have a better onlninn of me than to believe
such a tory. I can't conceive how euch an
absurd mimtatement ever cot afloat. I wan
only in prison a few months and not severe
ly treated." If the old man keeps on denying
iu this rainner we'll toon doubt that ho
was in prison at all, that he was ever at
Fort Djneleon, or that be was the horo of
any of the many pretty little stories fl ating
around among bis admirers.
CArr. Sam E. Hill, who has been very
favorably spoken of for the lieutenant governorship,
writes to his friend, Masterson
Peyton, Esq., that being unwilling to make
the scramble which it now seems necessary
to get any office, he has concluded to withdraw
his name from the list of candidates,
leaving his friends free to espouse the cause
of any other candidate. With 8enator Hill,
who had a good following here, off the' track
we believe it would be the best thing our
people could do, if they instruct at all in
that race, to do so for Jim Bryan, of Covington,
a young and progressive man and an
orator that can hold his own with the best
of them. With Bryan to tilk to his head a
few rounds, our esteemed friend, the gallant
Col. Bradley, will wish that a millstone
were about his neck and that he was
east into the sea. No natter who Is
at the head of the ticket, We shall
seed some such a man to counteract the effect
of Billy's burning eloquence.
Tub most rabid, rantankerous and uncompromising
opponent of Senator Harris
is Capt. Wallace Gruelle, of the Grayson
Gatcitc, To read bis choice effusions one
is led to think that the old gentleman
has an attack of the rabies or the jim jams,
it is hard to tell which. Oar venerable
friend has lived long enough it seems to us
to have learned that personal abuse is not
argument, and Bach a warfare as he is making
against a good man generally has the
opposite effect from that intended. Does
the good brother remember his tirade
against Montgomery and how many voters
that gentleman took up in his triumphant
election to Congress?
Our old fnsnd, Soule Smith, the "Falcon"
of the press, called the president of
the city council, Mr. Kauffman, of Lexington,
a liar, the other night, and got a feeler
in his ltft optic from the irate Hebrew.
Smith went for him then and there, and
while they were rolling and tumbling on
the floor friends interferred and the fight
was declared a draw. The trouble grew
out of some charges against the Hebrew's
official crookedness made by Smith, which
he denied and was thereupon given the
lie. It is said that more blood will flow,
but it is more than probable that hostilities
are at an end.
The fact that twocandidates for State of
oee have dropped dead within a month
will not deter the ayerage seeker for honors
from 'shving his castor in the ring." If all
of the present noble army should fall that
way, don't think we shall have to do without
officers. The woods are full of men yet
who will take anything that they can get
from a deputy constablesbip to a left-tenant
THEOwensboro Mwscner, which knows
something of the individual who opposes
him, savs the democrats of the entire State
should work and pray for the success of
Dr. Pettus in his race for the legislature.
It will take but little work and less praying
to accomplish the desired end for our
man is as good as elected now.
Gen Clay has thrown up the sponge,
leaving our esteemed friend, the gallant
warrior, Col. W. O'Bradler, a walkover for
the republican nomination for governor.
What "me and Billy" can't do when we
start out would be hard to tell. Together
we might elect him, but we part company
after May 4th.
A Kentucky editor has gotten there at
last. Thomas D. Marcum, for a term register
of the land office of this State and at
present editor of the CatletUburg Democrat,
has been appointed Inspector of Indian
Agencies at an annual salary of $2,000 and
par diem expentes.
Tey will all finally fall Into a solid
line. Congresaman Springer, of Illinois,
erstwhile an anti-Cleveland man, is out in
an interview favoring the renominatlon of
Cleveland, praising bim in hijjh terms and
predicting his re-election.
The Louisville Commercial shows its lamentable
ignorance in regird to our candidate
for the republican nomination for governor
by speaking of him as "Mr. William
O'Cjunor Bradley, of the county of Lincoln."
There are three separate and distinct
errors in that one line. In the first
place the gentleman alluded to is not a mis
ter, but a colonel, promoted to that rank
because of great valor in battle; in the sec
ond place his middle name is not O'Connor,
but O'Donnell, and lastly, but by no means
the least most unkind cut of all to a people
who never did Mr. O'Sullivan any harm,
Bradley does not bail from Lincoln county
Such ignorance is inexcutable, especially
since there is a large and handsomely-bound
book entitled "The Distinguished Men of
Kentucky," which is procurable. In that
book there is a steel-engraving of the hand
some cslonel, which cost him at least $50,
and a history of his life, written by himself,
or at his dictation, in which its start
ling events are portrayed in glowing colors,
which coat him another $50 or so to have
printed. Go to, young man; get thee to a li
brary; that of any vain individual, who im
agines he is of more importance than ho is,
and you will find the most remarkable book
yon ever cast your two eyes upon.
The case of William Klesane is another
evidence of the fact that crime of other
kinds than murder most always comes out
Thirty years ago the individual who bears
the above name might have been convicted
on either of the charges of steamboat burn
ing, murder, swindling and forgery, but he
managed to get ofl to California and strik
ing a streak of luck he mvle both money
and a good name, till now he U a wealthy
man, highly respected nnd with a family of
grown-up boys and girls, was pssiing
the declining years of his life in peace and
apparent happiness. He was known as
Rogers and no one ever dreamed he was the
fiend that it can be proved he was more
than a score and a half of years ago, till he
was finally discovered, and refusing to submit
to a call for blackmail, his history has
been published from one end of the country
to the other. Public sympathy, however,
is with him, as St ever is with a mau who
tries to atone for a misspent life by making
a good citlzjn of himself, and his innocent
family are the subjscts ot especial commts
Tux prohibition question isgitat!ng the
Lone Stir State from centre te circumference
and it would not surprise those who
are watching the drift of events if it carried
by a good majority. Senator Reagan, the
father of the Interstate Commerce bill,
wishing to be on the popular side, has somersaulted
in his opinion and is out in a letter
strongly advocating the adoption of the
amendment, whereas two years ago he as
warmly opposed it. Like the really true
temperance men, however, he objects to
making a party question out of a purely
moral one, and insists that a law which has
for its object the letojning of crime cannot
be called a sumptuary law and is not there
In a discussion of family affairs at Mead-
Title, Pa., Mrs. Buchholtz, emphasized a
point she was trying to make by throwing
a lighted lamp at Mr. Buchholtz head. An
explosion followed, setting fire to both f
them and the house. The wife was so badly
burned that she died, thi husband Is fatally
bnrned and the house is now a- pile of
ashes. All of which makes ui say what we
do say, that when a wife wants to beat her
huoband she had better do it with her favorite
weapon, the broom stick.
Bro. Kerr, of the Jessamine Journal, has
failed to send us his paper since it arose
from ashes, but from a copy
sent to us personally by some one, we observe
that he gets the Interior Journal
right along and appreciates iteo much that
he uses its editorials intact, forgetting of
course to credit. Two or more appear in
the issue before us, but it is all right; we
love to help our friends out.
