We this week place at our mast liead
tlie State Ticket, nominated by the late
3th of January Convention. Never,
since the days of "Old Hickory," has
a more united band of Democrats met
than on the 8t!i inst. Tito old men of
our State, with their age and experience
to council, and the young to tarry out
the resolves of their fathers, were theie
together, firm and united determina
tion pictured on every countenance.
We ask a careful perusal of the
platform adopted, contained in the res
olutions published in this paper. We
hope they will be satisfactory to every
Democrat in Vinton, and that all will
ponder and reflect how important it is
to have these principles established
near and dear to the heart of
very Democrat. Of your State Con-

"A GENERAL DRUNK."
Jhe editor of the Gazette informs his rea
ders that the members of the Democratic Stale
Convention had "a general drunk" at the
American on the evening of the Sth. As he
was not in attendance, it is fair to presume
that he Judges how others would act, know
ing bow he acta under similar circumstances.
Ve assure the editor of the Gdzctte that a
great roajoiity of those who attended the fes
tival were fully as sobor as he was at the sup

Jlouse, in this city, not long since.

Lord Forth has returned to England
from the Crimea. It is said his return
has created great indignation. The
London correspondent ot the New

"He is a very young officer.a minor
and, as it seems, not much of a hero.
In the battle of Alma he threw himself
on the ground, ai J screamed "I am
frighteneJ, I can't fight." Lord Rag
lan sent him word that in the next bat
tle he was expected to distinguish him
self by his gallantry, that his coward
ice might be forgotten. But at Inker-
mann lie again behaved as cowardly;
two officers, therefore, were sent by the
General-in-chief to cast away his epau

out of the camp. He returned to Eng

own him, and the clubs are closed
