Mr. Cakliste, of Kentucky, who is to

In way of murders, Cincinnati is about
to make Lancaster and Harrodsburg
ashamed of themselves. It is now considered
a very cold and unfavorable
night in Cincinnati when she fails to furnish
two first-class murders.
Wallae Gtbuelle says, in Nashville,
a female diamond thief has
been arrested who sails uuder the
various names of Rose Miller, Rose Myers,
Rose Lincks, Rose Flinks, etc. She
is a Rose who evididently imagines that
she is sweet under any name.
It would neither be just or constitutional
for the functions of the National
Government be made to collect special
taxes from distillers and disburse the
same equally between the States. What
justice would there be in making the
distillers of Kentucky pay the expenses
of the State Government of Vermont?
A man has been convicted of murder
in Mercer county. The jury eyidently
based the verdict on a misconception of
of the charge against the accused. This
mistake, of course, will be rectified by
the court of appeals on the .technicality
that Mercer county murderers are consigned
to congress instead of the penitentiary.

All of the thirteen New Yorkers who
sat down to dinner. on November 13th,
1884, to defy superstition, again dined together
on Tuesday evening, November
13th. On the left of each guest's plate
was a gravestone bearing the wine list,
upon it's right a coffin with the dinner
list, on it, while the ghastly spectacle
was illuminated by thirteen black candles.
Just as we expected : Sergeant Mason
has gone into the show business having
hired himself out as curiosity to a Pittsburg
showman. He and Sergeant Bates,
who is now lecturing in Southern Kentucky,
ought to coinbime and form a
boring association. There are
so many such charactors loose, that the
fool-killer can't attend to his business
promptly without more assistance. We
vote that he be reinforced.
When a husband refuses to pay his
wife's store bill he must be able to show to
the satisfaction of a jury that he has provided
her with funds enough to suitably
mantain herself in the station to which
she is accustomed. If he connot make
such a showing the bills can be collected
from his estate, notwithstanding ke has
given notice that ho will pay no debts of
her contracting. Such is a recent legal
decision of a New Jersey Court.
Mb. L D. Card well, editor of the
Mercer Enterprise, published at Harrodsburg,
Ky., finding that his extensive
. Drug and Book business needs his personal
attention, has concluded to dispose
of his paper. It is one of his most prosperous
Journals in the State, is equipped
with all the modern machinery, including
Folder, Engine, Cylinder and Job
Presses. It is the only paper published
in the town of 3,000 population, and a

The New Speaker.
Hox. John G. Caslibls was nominated
candidate for Speaker of the House of
Rep'igsentatives in the 48th National Congress,
by the Democratic caucus in Washington,
Saturday night, on the first ballot.
The vote stood Carlisle 105, Randall
52, Cox 31.
Mr. Carlisle is too well knwn for a
word of eulogy or commendation from us
suffice it to say thathe i3tbe right man
in the right place. He's just the very
man that the Democracy of the Union
wanted there by an overwhelming majority,
and one that the Republicans did
not want, although they sarcastically predicted
that with his eleyation to the
Speakership would be the downfall of the
Democratic party. We'll see about that
later. The issue of,high and low protective
tariff had to come. In fact, it was
destined to be the only issue between
the parties in '84, and the fight had just
as well begin now as any 'time. In congress
we have a fine majority, and it is
there that we'll first route the enemy
from his stronghold. We are to have
the South and West arrayed against the
East, representing the free people against
a band of bondholders, manufacturers,
monopolists and political tyrants with
the forced aid'of their pauper employes.
Both parties will now go to work in earnest.
It will he high tariff against low
tariff, or, in other words, monopoly
against anti-monopoly, or high taxation
against low taxation.
