' The Soldier vs. The Bondholder.
Tho soldier who spilled his blood id
defease of the country, - and risked his
life in her defense, was considered well
paid if, ha obtained his compensation in
greenbacks. But now tho - advocates of
the favored and exclusive class tell us
that it will never do to pay those who
lent money, to the Government in green
backs, altbo that was the kind of money
they lent the Government. The debt of
the bondholders, they say, Is a higher
and more saoied , one than that of the
soldiers I Legal tenders are good enough
for the latter, but nothing less.than gold
will do for the aristocratic bondholders I
A momentary obligation, in their esti
mation, is more precious than blood, and
a risk of property mora ; Baored than a
risk,, of life I Do the soldiers, believe
this? Is not the currency they were
paid in good enough for, anybody?

equality advocates are constantly harping
about the Negroes being a "degraded','
race ot people. They charge the South
ern people witn "degrading them, borne
of them, as, for instanoo, "Colonel Poor

at the Court House here, lately, even go
so far at to oharge the Demooratio party
with being the author ol tne meapi . of
the "degradation" of the Negroes. . ' ,
Now. as to degrade means "To reduoe
from a higher to a lower rank or degree,"
and this is obviouBly the sensa in which
it is used by the partisans of tho Negro,
we would inquire for some historioal in.

subject might prove acceptable and use

Blotting Out Stars.
Congress still keeps Kentucky
of the Union. .Kentucky was so ob
stinate that she wouldn't go out during
the rebellion ; so- the Union, party !
npw. turns her out.' ", What a noble set
of Union' reebnstructionists we have
in Congress, "truly l' Our .States are
represented jon .our,. flag,. by. stars.,
Byron,1 in, his " Vision Of Judgment,"
represents Saint Peter as guarding the
"celestial gi)te.,huta3 ''niost.sonls
wero drawn the other way," Saint Pe-I
ter had very little- to do. . : So his Saint
ship! is represented as taking anap.-j-f-AU
t once there i a terrible " noise
and clatter," caused by th approach
of George Third arid" his convoy with
Jjucifer in hot pursuit. This suddonly
awakes the Apostle,: .who i inqujires

Our '"reconstruction" '- Congress
strikes stars from tho ; Union with as
little unconcern as tho Keeper of the
celestial gate ia represented to have
lelt at their going out. Ten or a doz
en stars extinguished Is nothing.'1 In
order to " reconstruct " them iif, you
must put 'em out ? The condition of
Kentucky, now out in the cola, well
represents' the' temper of Congress.
