eighteen hours in the unhealed cars. It
took a day and a half to dig out the train.

term. It abolishes the Electoral College,
and provides for a direct vote for
President. Each state shall hftve as many
votes as it has Senators and Representatives
in congress. It fixes the terms of
members of congress at three years.
What To Do.
Louisville Argus: Some Kentucky papers
have been urging Governor Blackburn,
as the surest, easiest and cheapest
way of settling the matter of the Commonwealth
vs. Neal and Craft, to call a
special session of the Legislature, so that
air act may be passed removing the case
to Lexington, Louisville, or some other
place where there will he no danger of
mob violence : Judging from the attitude
of the people of Boyd and adjacent counties,
as evidenced by the daily threats of
vengeance which come from that section,
both privately and through the columns
of the local press, it will not only be necessary,
if troops are sent, to order out the
entire State Guard, but to eend it under
orders that will speedily and effectually
stamp out the mob spirit, if violence is
offered. But, supposing, the trial to proceed
without bloodshed, it must consume
at least thirty days' time. A jury can not
be obtained in less than a week, and three
weeks will scarce suffice to give the case a
fair and impartial investigation. This
being true, let us see how much it will
cost the State to try the prisoners at Gray
son. The total strength of the State Guarc1,
with full ranks, is 1,280 rank and file. Ot
this number, 75 men will be commissioned
and 108 non-commissioned officers, and
1,037 privates. The pay of officers is $2.
50 per day; non-commissioned, $1.75, and
privates $1.50, At the rates, troops would
cost the State thus:
1,037 men at 81.30 per day SI ,535 50
108 non-commissioned officers at $1.7 j
per day...,. 2fU 00
75 commissioned officers at 2,50 per da 187 50
S2 037 00
Substence, 1,280 men at 51 ceuts per day
(an extremely low estimate) 0-10 00
On day's pay and rations 82,827 00
Add transportation both ways (say) U,J00 00
This, bear in mind, will be the cost of
one day's services of the State Guard.
Now mutiply the last amount by thirty
the number of the days the trial will
surely last deducting first the
($6,400,) which is to be added afterward,
and the amount is increased to the
startling figure of $S0,310. To this add
transportation ($6,400,) and we have $86,-730.
But this is not all. The incidentals,
which will include a great many things
impossible now to enumerate, will foot
up at least $5,000, Then the. uniforms
which will be damaged and worn out will
cost the State at least $20,000 more. So
that we may safely estimate the cost of
the trial leaving out witnesses and civil
expenses to be $111,700; in round numbers,
about $115,000. A session of the
Legislature can be called for a great deal
less money, and other business can be
transacted also, so that if Governor Blackburn
is disposed to save money and
bloodshed he will call the Legislature together.
The cost of an extra session will
be about $20,000 or $25,000. We will save
$75,000 by such an arrangement, and we
hope it will be made. The estimates are
based on thirty days7 service for troops
and a thirty day session for the Legislature.
The Covington news in the (Cincinnati
Enquirer of the 12th inst, says :
Judgo Burr read the riot act to the moon-shiners
yesterday. Ho said that he had bten
easy on them heretofore, but he intended to
break it up, 11 possible. The law gives power
to the Judge to inilicta tine or 35,000 and sentence
them to the penitentiary lor two years,
He would Inflict the above penalty unless the
people In the moonshine district ceased their
violations of the internal revenue laws.
Tl.oovideuce and statements elicited at the
trial of some of tiie moonshiners show ignorance
of the law, In addition to animosity
between witnesses and the accused parties,
A man by the name of Perry, who had
the appearance of an houest man, told a
very peculiar story yesterday In connection
with his case, He was working for a man in
one oft ho Eastern counties, and Ills boss sent
him to a neighboring town to purchase a
Ion of whisky. He brought the whisky baok
with him and delivered it to his employer. He
was met soon aiterward by the man, who, by
the way, was the witnesft that convicted him,
and tills man asked him if he had any whisky.
Perry told him that he had not. The man said
that he was compelled to have some, as he had
been at work in Mason county, where he had
his whisky regular, and he could not possibly
do without it. He offered Perry twenty cents
to go and get him some. Alter considerable
reluctance Perry consented to ask his boss for
some, and the man save him a half-pint bottle
to fill. Perry took tne bottle and had it partly
filled and put in the man's coat, which was
hanging in the orchard. Six months afterward
Parry received his twenty oents and was subsequently
indicted for selling whisky.
Another convicted moonshiner told a story
to the effect that he was informed on by men
who simply wanted to make moneyby being
