The Now York Timet deniea that
Gen. Grant aade the plcdgo to tbe
President tntt las been imputed to
him. But th National Intelligeneer
darea Grant to dny it, promising If
ho do, that it ahall ho, provon pon
him bj men who oUnd aa high as he
does! It It clear that the General is
gnilty of treachery, falsehood and
insubordination. ' This, howerer, will
not injure him in Radical estimation
because it was by such agencies, that
they obtained, and now retain, pow
er. Tna denial or the Times is the
effort of a mere 'striker' for Grant, to
delude the conservative Republicans,
by raising a doubt of Grant's guilt,
anl thus weaken the effect of his
unmanly and ungentlemanly con.
We are glad to see that our very
patriotie and enlightened Legislature
though resolved to remove Judge
Barry, whose upright character is a
standing reproach to that bodyi as
well as a breakwater between it and
the rights of the people, has discov
ered that it can save fifty thousand
dollars between removing by eon
current resolution and impeachment.
The charges preferred by that lying
thief, MoKinley, and sustained only
by men of his own stripe, are suffici
ent to satisfy the easy consciences of
his kindred spirits in both Houses.
It is a question of purty, and not of
justice, and the more false the char
ges, the more characteristio of 'the
perpetrators of the contemplated en
ormity. We feci painfully, the utter inutil
ity of any attempt, at this lata hour,
to arrest the progress of the revolu
tion, by appeals to reason, or an ex
pose of the schemes by which consti
tutional liberty is being annihilated.
Tet we feel it inoumbent upon us to
chronicle the meana employed to
overthrow the constitution and build
up a despotism in it stead. Last
week we pointed out eoute of the
means already successfully used.
Since that time, the Radical Anacon
dahasbeencontracting its coils around
tho President, preparatory to swal
lowing him whole.
A bill has been introduced, in an
ticipation of his removel, which pro
vides, virtually, that Wade shall
succeed him; and, fearing defeat. at
the ballot box, the Radicals further
provide that there shall be no election
this year, and that Wade shall hold
on for the next Presidential terra.
Such defiant usurpation in the fe of
thirty millions of people, habitual
boasters of their undying love of
liberty, it almost incredible, but it it
true notwithstanding. But this is not
all ; it is further provided that in
ease the President is impeached, he
shall be suspended during triul, and
it is made the duty of any civil, nav
al, or military officer to see that the
suspension is perfected. The plain
english of it, is that the President is
to be removed by force, Wade is to be
President for nearly five years, and
the people are to be forced to submit
through Grant and the army.
What tho President oan do to avert
the oonsummation of the diabolical
scheme, it is more difficult to say than
what ho might have done heretofore.
One thing, however, is certain, and
that is that it is too late now to ac
complish anything for the good of
the country by argument or appeals
to patriotism. The people are at ap
athetic as if they were living in as
sured security of all their constitu
tional rights. What a contrast be
tween now and 1861, when Puritan
hypocrites were hoarse with the ory
for the preservation of the Union
and the Constitution and pulpits
wero sonorous with promises of plun
der, in the shape of horded plate and
jewels and dollars, in every dwelling
in the South. Now that the Union
and the Constitution have gone to
the devil and tho plunder to the
North, 'th people of that enlightened
and christian section are as tame un
der the yoke of tyranny as tbey were
once rampant at the bare idea of an
infraction of the organie law and a
severance of a Union not now worth
preserving. The President had long
homilies, all the time, about tho du
ties of the people, forgetting the
while, that he had a duty to perform
beyond the warnings he has given of
coming events. i

Ma. Kditob i Uaeiog takea a flying trip
through a part of Western Kentucky, I have
concluded to Jot dowa a few item ia con
nect ion therewith. ' "
In company with a goodly number of pas-
aeageis, w left th wbarfboat, on board that
joetry Celebrated steamer, the Nashrllle, oa
Friday th lotb nit, ander the chare of
that prince of ft ram boat atea CapU Wiley
Sims, who teems to knew and anticipate th
want of th traveling public, and Spares no
pain or expense to mak Terj on fret
eomforUbl, and home-like who asay trav)
with him. W ear, success to you, Captain
la speaking thm of the Captain, w would
not b understood a making ai Uridines
distinction between him and th other offi
cers; but tok them aJtocTtber, w bar
never sees a more gentlemanly audpollte set
collected on one boat. Card playing, whisky
drinking and swearing teem to bare fallen
entirely Into disuse. W neither law nor
beard anything during our trip to Paducah
to offend the most fastidious. Therefore, w
would cheerfully recommend lb Nashville
as the bout for th traveler. '
After stopping at nearly every way-point,
we arrived at Paducah at 3 o'clock a. n, the
lltli. The question then, was where to find
a stopping place until morning. As there
were no hacks or porters, this was entirely a
leap ia the dark. Finally, w found a tnaa
on th street who was kind enough to con
duct us to tbe Campbell Bouse.., We would
here remark, that If it be true that th pros
perity of a town Is lob jndged by It hottl
accommodations, w are forced to conclude
that the prosperity of Padncaa is t a very;
low ebb; for sncb accommodations it has
never bea our iefbrton to rewire at the
bends of any inn keeper. We are, however,
willing to do our host Justice so far at to say
be proportioned his charges to bis Sua, aud
that a visit to th market explain? d. to tnme
extent, tbe tack of variety of ediblrs; but
we could not account for th manner in
which the few Were served up.
After what was called breakfast, we stroll
ed round town, teeing the sights, until we
were admonished by our time keeper that It
was time to task for the depot to tak th
train for Ma j field. Havtng arrived just la
lime, we took our place in a very comforta
ble eoach. Soon tbe signal to loos brakes
was given and away we went, and without
any mishaps arrived In due time at the very
neat aed nourishing little town of Mayfield.
Having arrived too lata to prosecute our
journey further that day, w concluded to
stop with "mine host" of the Mayfieid BoteL
Major W. M. Cargill, whom we found genial,
whole-eoaled, gentlemanly, kind and accom
modating to bi guests. We learned, lad
dentally, that the Major was a gallant knight
of the "Lost Cause," to which be sacr.Bced

found to be pleasantly situated, with some

people an honor. We could not help insti

building used her for tbe sara purpose, and
wa must acknowledge tbat the comparison
was anything but flattering so. our city,

we will leav for another time.

erable improvements during the present year.

A railroad is bow being surveyed from
Mayfieid to Jackson, Tennessee, th building
of which the people regard as a fixed fact,
and look with aangnlo anticipations to its
completion as the dawning of a new era in
the prosperity of tbe tows and country,

Impending Destruction of Salt lake
Th correspondent of tb Cleveland (0,)

the following remarkabi stateattnts in re

town. Be says
Tbe beautiful and picturesque Salt Lake,
with its hundred mountain inlets, has now

by river and rivulets, tb water of an area
of over 800,000 squafB miles. A' vast
