Dispatches from Memphis, on the 5th,
state that several hundred negroe have

General Grant's departure trom Luck

A reign of terror has Wen inaugurated
in Kuasia. The Ccir ha amxiinteil six
military dictators with absolute power over
their subjects, in consequence uf the recent
attempt on the Ufa of the Czar. A state
of civil war may almost be said to exist
throughout Russia. The despotic acta of
the Ciur have made a terrible revolution
robabIe. Thousands of citizens have been
aeut to prison or lianisheil. Rcgutarcrim
inal proceediire appears to have been al
together aiixpended. Ordinary offenders,
not even suspected of plotting against the
State, are made subject to martini law.

The Negro Exodus.
The question of the negro exodus from
the South is attracting much attention.
Col. Robert G. Inoebsoix promises to
give 11,000 immediately, and half of his
income for the next five years, to assist the
colored refugee. And Zack Ciiauler,
who ha very large farm in Michigan,
propose to employ one hundred of lliem
a laborer opon it. Other philanthropist
will be found of equal ability and like dis
position. The solution of the vexed ques
tion la becoming apparent. Tbe colored
men themselves are moving in the North,
to give direction to the exodus, and to as
aist it The atampede of such large num.
ben of colored people front the Southern
elates, without any provision for their im

It is not surprising, therefore, that Oxy

THE SPECIAL DITCH LAW.
EuiTon Journal -The advocate of
ouripecial ditch law (see "Old Taxpnyer"
in last week'a &nfinef arming others) are
vainly trying to keep tip the Impression
that said law are realty wanted by the
mas of the people that they promote the
publio welfare; that they save large sums
of money to tax-payers in the dr.iiusge of
their binds, Ac, Ac. Nothing can be more
Inconsistent than this kind of tnlk, when
we consider the nature of these lws ami
the proceedings of those who net under
them. - ' ' '
If the authors of our special ditch laws
rosily have the public interest at heart
why I it thstaalil Inwsnre framed in such
a manner at to deprive the great majority
of the people-- much as possible of a
voloe in the matter of locating and estab
lishing ditches thronehout the county T
In the first place bow many )etitionera
does It take for a ditch, the construction of
which msy cost $30,000 or $40,000, and
which may involve hundreds of land own
era who have no need whatever of aaid
pretended improvement into ruinous ex
penses? 2d, why Is It that the special law
dispense with Notices served, by petition
ers, on all resident landowners interested
in any ditch improvement? All ia done
now by publication in some newspaper of
general circulation, Ac. 3d, why is It that
parties, throngh whose lands ditches ex
tend, forfeit their claims to damages done,
or compensation for land appropriated if
said claims are not filed on or before the
day set for hearing petition? Why i it
k.i rU riiini.M n4.. tt special mw
I old in half mile sections, Ac,, instead of
being apportioned equitably among the
parlies interested ? Although the law pre
scribes the empty formality of hearing ex
ceptions to apportionments, what does il
amount to? It is completely optional with
our Commisiiioners to alter or confirm just
as 'hey see fit even theordering of a com.
mittee of review the law makes en ircly
optional with the Commissioner so that
aggrieved parties, in most cases, have no
oilier remedy but to appeal from the decis
ion of said Commissioners to the Courts.
Every new feature of our special ditch law
lends to still further restrict the rights of
the people on the suhjecl of ditches. (See
the oil I I'efore our Legislature urovidino
fnr the manner in which County Cammwionei $
tluul locate dUeltci in eerU in counties, and that
if they tee fit may extend a ditch beyond the Urn
il asked for in the petition for nuch ditch )
It is understood Ilia oiirComiuisxioners,
in establishing rlitcli 204, ordered some 14 or
15 miles moreditch than the pciition called
for. This they had no authority to do ac
cording to the law under which they were
acting. Hence the reason fur the bill now
lielore the legislature.
No wonder people have become disgusted
with our sitecial ditch laws which invest
County Commissioners with powers not war

traUors and despots take heed how they
ssoff at repealed acts of mercy. The time
is near at hand when outraged justice and
judgement will cry nut for vengeance. Slave
musters will not be verm it ted to crack their
whips in our halls of Congress much longer.
Everybody knows or ought to know thnt
there is a point of time when forbearance
ceases to be a virtue. It is full bad enough
to smite down the goddess of liberty sealed
u kiii her thronu dispensing justice to each
and every subject ol her realm, but when
cowards so (ar outrage every sense of de

children it ia high lime that they should
be made to feel the scourge of uoi merely
small cords but also the salutary smell and
the purifying effects ol fire and brimstone.
The sons and daughters of liberty love
mercy. Vengeance is then strange work.
But when the assassin and murderers ol
liberty revel in the blood of innocent ones,
vengeance becomes an net of mercy in the
hands of justice? Let the thunder bolls of

Fuller Particulars of the Swindler.
In 'bo article puMi-hed In last week's
Joi'liNAt. under die lu-siling of "Plead the
Baby Art," s full and clear statement of
the iruiisaitioii was not given. The follow
ing sre the fact as related by one fully con.
versant with them.
Edmund Inmm Carr, son of Joshnn
Carr, loaned money to Evers for the sup
port of the latter while attending sellout
and took his note then for. The note was
lost, and when Carr, afierthe rinse of the
war, demanded payment, Evers set up that
ins inllier, who rlieil before Hint lime, hail
paid the debt previous lo the war, yet the
evidence showed thst Evers himself paid
some $15 or $20 of it while in the army,
acquiring thai bravery which enabled him
to deny the claim and plead payment and
the statute of limitations.
The amount being under $300 Csrr
brought action before Esq. Goit of Bowling
Green and recovered judgment. Evers
appealed the case to Common Pleas and
then filed an answer pleading psymcnl,
and the statute of limitations. He had
not, however, obtained courage sufficient to
verify his answer by swearing that he even
believed the debt had been paid. The pros
pect of an enforced journey to Columbus
waa not pleasant to him. His vanity,
doubtless, led him to believe that the un
supported word of such an exceedingly im
portant personage ss himself, was sufficient
to control the nc Ion and judgement of the
court. The result proved that he had
simply inflated himself, as this court like
the preceding one, gave judgment ngainst
Still determined to defeat Carr, it possi
ble, in the col ectioh of bis Just dues, he
took the case, on error, to th Ditricl Court
nnd that Irihunnl, iinhcsilnliiiply, affirmed
the judgment of the Common Pirns.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
WASHINGTON, D. C., May 2, 1879.
I write to day from a city in which tho
Republican party lis sturdy representa
tives in the Congress, tbe Cabinet and the
White Houso. We have not a majority of
voles, though we haven vast preponderance
of brains, in tbe first mentioned body, but
we have a unanimous vote in the two
The President on Tuesday vetoed tiie
bill passed by a Democratic Congress to
turn future elections over to the repeater
of New York and the riflo club of the
South. He did It, too, with the concur
rence of every member of hi Cabinet, and
he was and I supported iu his action bv
every Republicaifmember uf Congress, by
all except three of the Greenhacker In
Congress, and by nine tenth of the patriot
ic people ot the country. The President
has, on n very important occasion, and
against Influences not readily appreciated
by those away from the Capital, vindica
ted bis Republicanism nnd patriotism.
He has done it, loo, in a message which is
at once an addition to ihe argument In
favor of his own parly and a conclusive
demonstration of the strength of our form
of Gov't. The brilliant speeches of Mr.
Blaine in the late debate 011 the Army biil,
the opening speech of Mr. Garfield iu the
House, and that of Mr. Conkling inclosing
the Republican side of the Senate debate.are
ull worthy of high praise. They will be
read by all those who come after us, and
will be texts from which legisla ors will
herealter speak. .Il in not too much to aay
'tin, il, l,t.,id,"i not only ndiuiinUy
epitomized all that those eminent men
said, but did more. He allowed, even more
plainly thai they had done, the utter folly
of the Democratic position. The President
h is not been and is not likely to be the
favorite of the whole Republican party, but
I doubt if any better campaign document
will be circulated during the next two
vears than the veto message he sent lo the
Democratic House on I ue-day last.
I beie were lots of Democratic caucuses
yesterday. The city waa lull of them.
When the House came tu a vote, venter
day, 011 passing ihe Army bill over the
President's veto, there were 120 Represent
alive in favor of its passage and 110
auainsl it. The difference between this
and (he vote by which the Legislative bill
passed the House on Saturday last 140 lo
119 111 iy fairlv be said tu be due tu the
influence wielded by Senators Blaine and
Conkling, in their admirable presentation
of Republican views, and tn the excellent
veto message of President Hayes,
All that is left for a Democratic Congress
ia do is to pass the appropriation bills
without riders of any kind. Il mav be
that "supply" bills will be passed, by
which the Gov't will be saved from starv
ing to death until December, but that will
be as full a back-down a to pass the regu
There is not much satisfaction In writing
about the financial intentions of Congress.
It is known to ull that 110 bil can pass
which will senuusly interfere wilu busi
ness. There was recently published a statu
menl uf Ex-Senator Hendricks that he
would not accept a second place on the
Democratic ticket of 18S0. In order that
no injustice may be done this esteemed
gentleman I give below a late letter from
"My Dear Sib: I bnvevour favor of
the 28th, asking whether there 1 any
foundation for 1 lie statement contained in
the newspaper slip inch sed, to the effect
that I have written to the members of the
Democratic party iu Pennsylvania lavor-
'iug the reuoininatioii of the ticket ot 1876
fur 1880. I am surprised to see such n
statement. It is withuulany foundation in
truth. 1 have written no such letter and
have in nu form expressed any such view.

of the greatest agricultural pursuits. The
Commissioner of Agriculture at Washing
