The editors of the Lexington Press and
the Gazette are just now enjoying a war
of words, and from the cardjof Major
Duncan in yesterday's Press, the moon
now wears a beautiful, bright tinge. It
appears from Major Duncan's card, that
Bro. Gratz has'accused the Maior with
cruelty to prisoners of war captured from
Morgan's command at this place. The
Major after clearly refuting the charge,
calls him a liar and other bad names,
comes back at him as follows :
"The base appeal made to the passions
of tho long suffering adherents of the
"Lost Cause," by the craven and childish
old man of the Gazette, is in keeping
with his contemptible character. That
Confederate soldiers may know him, I
will only add the portrait of Gratz, drawn
by a distinguished Confederate soldier,
Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge. The following
is from the Observer and Reporter of
of April 20, 1867:
"We like plain dealing and plain speaking.
This man was known here years ago
as a lawyer without knowledge or clients-known
in Missouri as a bankrupt without
principle, by whose transactions thousands
lost who could not afford it. Before the war,
a blatant Secessionist; during the war, skillfully
managing to carry water on both
shoulders, intimate witn Federal officers,
openly supporting Lincoln, clandestinely
writing articles for the Itadical papers here;
secretly professing to be Southern and to be
assisting Southern soldiers perhaps a hired
spy on both sides. Since the war, an offensive
ultra Southern Democrat, then a moderate
Conservative Democrat, then squinting towards
the Third Iarty always a purchasable
sub-editor. "Hired" by the Yeoman, writing
in favor of.the first of May Convention, and
secretly begging employment as writer for I
this paper to oppose that Convention."
After this article I shall refrain from
any further imposition on the patience oi
my readers by taking notice of the Gazette's
fiings at me personally. There
are other methods for adjusting personal
difficulties more congenial to me, and the
editor of the Gazette will find me very
accoaimodating. My address for the next
ten days will be Fifth Avenue Hotel,
New York City. H. T. Duvcan.
The Republican band of officeholdors
in Kentucky, masquerading as a political
party, has claimed to be an especial friend
friend and guardian to the colored man.
In season and out of season, when needing
his vote, the colored citizen has been
told by the white Republicans how they
and they alone had been their friends ;
how they had struck the shackles from
his limbs ; how they had lifted him from
the Slough of Despond and placed him
upon tho proud pinnacle of freedom. All
this was very fine talk and
worked the desired result tho solidifying
of the colored vote in aid of the Republican
party in every emergency. Lai
June, they went further than ever before
and placed upon their State ticket the
name of a colored man the Rev. J. "W.
Asbury, of Bourbon county, for Register
of the Land Office. But it appears that
the compliment was not intended to
farther. In every county,even those
where the Republicans have long had
control, the name of Asbury was scratched,
and he falls far behind his ticket.
There was no claim of incompetency ;
on the contrary, he is said to be a respectable
man, both in point of character and
intellect, but the wnole sum and substance
of the the matter is that the Republicans
are not honest in their professions
of exclusive friendship and fealty
to the colored man, and have 'really no
use for him other than as a party hewer of
wood and drawer of water at the polls for
their own selfish advancement. Cour
The people of Bourbon, Nicholas,
Floming and Mason are favorably impressed
with Judge Richard Reid's candidacy
for the Appellate Bench. The
many thinking men do not blame him
for asking the promotion from the Superior
Court, for that Court was created for
the special purpose of assisting the Court
of Appeals in their work, iH which they
were several years behind the dock. It
would be just as improper to promote a
private from the ranks of a military
to the major's office when a senior
officer had been acting major to fill the
vacancy, as ta promote one from the
ranks of Judge Reid to the Appellate
Court. It must not, and will not be

Mrs. Mary J. McClintock's house was
burglarized Monday night, and a lot of
silverware was stolen. The rumor that
she lost all of her silyerware was premature,
for the thieves succeeded in getting
only about $75 wortli of it, which consisted
in table, desert and tea spoons. They
were engraved "M. J. McCliutoce," excepting
a few of them which were marked
"N. F." A heavy soup ladle was also
taken. The thieves entered through 'the
kitchen, and left a lamp burning when
they left. They were very particular not
to take any plated ware. Some of the
plated ware was found next morning in
the garden. Mrs. McClintock will freely
trive the worth of the goods for the return
of the g .vare. No one but herself and
little Lucile Milam were in tho house the
night of the theft.

That's a common expression

The singular thing about
it is, that pain in the back
is occasioned by so many
things. May be caused by
kidney disease, liver ,com-plaint,
nervous debility, &c.
Whatever the cause, don't
neglect it. Something is
wrong and needs prompt
attention. No medicine has

I,Ogansport, Ind. Dec. x, 1S80.
tor a long time I have been a
sufferer from stomach and kidney
disease. My appetite was very poor
and the very small amount I did eat
disagreed with me. I was annoyed
very much from non-retention of
urine. I tried many remedies with
no success, until I used Brown's
Iron Bitters. Since I used that my
stomach does not bother me any-My
appetite is simply immense. My
kidney trouble is no more, and my
general health is such, that I feel
like a new man. After the use of
Brown's Iron Bitters for one month,
I have gained twenty pounds in
weight. O. B. Sargekt.
