"What Governor Knott Is.
"Governor Knott is a man) made 6! la
different metal. Those, who take him 1
a humorist, who will make joke of L
magistracy, know nothing of him. " There1
is a good deal of cynicicism in his ' wit ;
and, in hh eharacter, both moral and
mental, he is exacting and exact to the
verge of austerity. It would be hard to
find a more inaccessable person. Cold,
direct and able, one of the best trained
public men, ambitious only for the re-
waras oi usemi ana nonoraole service,
very clean and very close, perfectly sincere,
positive, but unaggressive, a little
lazy, but entirely trust-worthy, a little
uairow, but admirably learned, Proctor
Knott posesses the elements' of a really
great Governor. He cannot be driven,
nor easyily led ; and yet, in his private
life and to his familiars, a gentler and
more complying disposition, or a brighter
and more genial disposition, one could
not wish to meet. He is emphatically a
man who separates his domestic from his
public life. In one he has the simplicity
of a child. In the other he is the stern
idealist, to whom official duty is personal
"I trust it will not be considered improper
for me to declare distinctly and irrevocably,
that in no case will I grant a
pardon, or remit the penal consequences
of a conviction of a criminal offense,
unless I shall be fully satisfied
upon a thorough and impartial examination
of all the circumstances that it would
be unjust to the convict or in some mariner
detrimental to the public interests to
carry into execution the penalty of the
law. Upon no other principle in my
judgement could I possibly exercise that
high prerogrative consistenly with my
obligation to see that the laws are- faithfully
executed, or with the inflexible demands
of justice, which is the prime
of all good govenment to fulfil.
Deacon "Wilson, of Evansville, Mo.,
was so greatly annoyed by a stranger who
flirted with his daughter in church that
while praying he raised his voice to it's
highest pitch and said : "An' now, O
Lord, hev mercy on the dum idiot with
the store clothes on as is winkin' at our
Alice, and keep him hanging around the
church door when sarvice is ovei till I
can get to him an' put on a head him !
Henry Waterson welcomed President
Arthur to Louisville thus: ,4We turn
over to you our houses and horses, and
there is the jug, and the sugar, and the
ice, and the mint. "We even surrender
to you the hip-pocket play-things with
which we sometimes amuse ourselves,
and if you can't make yourself at homeand
pass the time pleasantly, may the Lord
have mercy oh your soul."

' Ex-Gov. Hendricks has returned to

benefitted the necrosis of the dorsal

Governor Blackburn is going to institute
