The receipts of the Land Office at
Frankfort amount to a little over $1,000

amounts to about $4,000. The office

There is no use in keeping alive

Just before Governor Blackburn's departure

The Democracy in Cincinnati doesn't
appear to be as conciliatory as a iaithful

made a brief address, in which he said
. his State was formerly distinguished for
statesmen, who unfortunately spent too
much time in elaborating the theory of
government. Now they were cultivating
that practical statesmanship, which gives
attention to the development of the material
resourscs of the Stale.
Hon. Joe Blackburn said to the News:
"So far as a man's usefullness to himself
