Noticing by the newspapers that yon
have been indicted for blasphemy I take
the liberty of offering my sincere sym
pathy and hopes of your ultimate vic
tory. The idea oi your not being able
to express your religious belief in the
nineteenth century, and in a republic at
that is preposterous, and a satire on our
so-called free institutions. Pray accept
my distinguished regard and believe me
yours sincerely. A. Hall,

for that class of citizens known as the

may be that you will offer an explanation
to a problem that is bothering my mind
It is this: when I was charged witn
the crime of seduction everybody wan
ted to send me to the penitentiary, and
when our eloquent Col. Breckinridge is
charged with, and acknowledges, a like
crime, the parties want to send him to
Congress. Why is tins difference.'
S. I. HOWARD,
Give it up; ask me something easy.
Doesticks' argument in favor of slavery
was "He had no right to be a nigger.
That's the matter with you. If you had
only taken the reasonable precaution to
be born a white man you would not have
to ask why is this thus. It's a maxim of
law that "no man may take advantage of
his own tort." It was your duty to have
been born a white man. Ed Blade.

day's Chicago Tribune is commendable.
C f. rACKKR,
Have heard so much of your paper the

it. Sorry to see you in trouble.

And hounding you as well.
If they don't like to go your way-
Just let them go to h-1-
J. i. hegler,
Rest assured that you have plenty of
infidel friends in Indiana, and that your
arrest will have a tendency to give you a
much larger circulation ol your paper.
Had this not happened I would not have
known of your paper. You have indeed
my very best and warmest wisnes.
Please mail me a few back numbers of
the Blue Grass Blade. I have never seen
the paper that "E. L. Southgate" evi
dently reads and dislikes. He must be
one of the few men away behind the
times. One would think so from the
articles in the Northern newspapers.
Some body ought to inform him that he
is living very nir the end of nineteenth
Can it be possible that you have a man
in the city of Lexington, or state ot Ken
tuckv. who needs such a reminder?
Southgate is doing much to add to
your circulation. It can not be other
wise. W. W. Wilcox,

I have been reading in the New York
Press about you. Mamma and I are very
much interested in your paper. I feel
sorry for your imprisonment and hope
you will soon be released.
