Many of the courts of tho conntrj
have doolded that contracts, made
payablo la gold, are not binding
upon the debtors, who may force
creditor to take, la. lien thereof,
depreciated paper currency. The
Supreme Court of New York, repu
diating a legal construction so at war
with Justice, has decided that obliga
ting to pay gold should be enforced.
This deoiaion is based mainly, upon
the fact, thai the aot of Congress
making legal tender the eurrenoy of
the country, ha praotically retired
the precious metal as circulating
medium and thrown them upon the
market as articles of trafio. Hence
contracts, stipulating payment In gold
partake of th character, and are
subject to the rules that govern, bar
ter. In other words, according to
this righteous opinion of that court,
whatever a man binds himself to pay,
he must pay, whether it be when or
corn or any other commodity, u a
man simply bind himself to pay so
many dollars and cents, it may be
politic to make him pay greenbacks,
though it be In contravention of the
constitution, but if he agree to pay
cotton for dry goods, or tobacco for
groceries or gold for land, there is no
justice in releasing him from an obli
gation voluntarily assumed, especially
as the transaction, in either of the
supposed cases, is simply s bartering
of one commodity for another.
We hope this common sense and
jjust view of this subject will be adop
ted by the Courts, ao that justice
may be Administered in all such cases
and that clause of the Constitution
respected, which forbids any interfe
rence that impairs the validity of
The President's last letter to Grant,
backed by the testimony of the Cabi
net, effectually demolishes all that
remained of the General's character
for ycraoity and manly honor. It
strips the lion's skin from his recreant
treachery and of being the thick-
skulled tool of artful knavea. The
time has been when such proof of such
oonduct would have consigned a man
to lasting infamy ; but in these days
of degeneracy, a fellowfoeling will
draw to Grant's support thousands of
kindrod spirits, but it is to be hoped
there is still enough of honest pat
riotism and love of liberty among the
people to overbalance the influence of
the embryo dictator and stupid pre
tender to a greatness thrust upon
him by men and circumstances ad
verse to the prosperity, honor and
iberty of the country.
Old Spitfire, in his message on the
ubject of the railroad strike, at this
place, professes to see in it a huge
rebellion against the State and his ia
perial power and scruples not to charge
said strike upon our citizens and the
rebellious district through which the
road runs. The charge ia grossly
false and as malicious as it false.
Petty tyrants see rebellion in every
manifestation of private or public
virtue; it is the result of conscious
guilt which makes cowards of the
The source from which the old
imp of darkness got his information,
we neither know nor care, for it is
falso whether borowed or original,
and his mossage is a slander against
men who are his superiors ia every
thing that constitutes the ohristian
and gontlemaa. But malice, in him
is as natural a secretion, as venom is
in a sorpent, and would treat this
ezhition of it with silent contempt,
wore it not our duty to vindicate the
character of those assailed.
The following is the portion 0.
the message above alluded to:

"I prorate, If the Leulilatnre will asrre

The luhjrct metier we referred to tbe
Committee ou UwlroaJ Acuuuuti.
a. EoKoat Our last left aln miles
ont from Mayfleld. During our stay of ten
da, th ground was covered with snow and
lee to such an extent that we could not
judge of the fertility of tbeioil from sight,
but bad to rorm our opinion In thli particu
lar (rota toe Ingathered crops and the oora
aad tobacco (talk itill standing. With theae
data before oa, w concluded that tb toll
mart be very productive. W were told
that front eight to twelve barrels of cam aad
ftoft Ion to fifteen handled ponnds of to-
baoeo per acr wa no extra yield. Tbl
"on is not consldartd a very good wheat
growing country, a it lie ao level and
tain water o long that wheat I Dabl to
free out during a very hard winter,
Tb item of Umber, Tenneeaecana would
regard as a failure, black-jack and hickory
oeing in only growth. This, however, to
some extent, I counterbalanced by aa abua
daao of timber on the creek. Bence, while
th apian di are brought Into requiattkm by
tb farmer, the bottom are ibll clothed with
their primeval fbfeit, and are only need to
obtain rich tupplie of timber a cannot be
obtained on th more elevated regions.
From our obeervitioui w eon elude that
this lacks but on element to make U th
nneet and moat deilraUe portion of tb great
Mhnlsaippl Valley and that la. a Uttl more
of the ipirit of improvement, which ennkt
be fully Intuied by a few puoUc-epirrtrd men

a few year, by th iafiumo of their ezam
K develop tb reeourcee of tb country,
erect neat and comfortable Improvement,
and thus bring about a ipirit of emulatioa
and improvement which would add untold
thousand to th Wealth of tb eooutry.
But now It really eems that th country if
at leart fifty ytan behind the times. Tber
ar (till many mea of mean who ar living
n log cablna, chink daubed with mud, clap-
board roofs and stick and dirt chimney.
Now w think thl all wrong when men can
do better; It make aa anfarorabl impre
lioa upon a Itrangnr ( th canal observer
concludes that th lead 1 o poor that a man
can really do ao better ; bene th country
suffers. While tbe more toooihtfuL omIuk

wrong aim, and as he recollect that be baa
een ao neat country achool-bouies on bti
wy a o many fountain nnding forth
(ream of Intelligence to enlighten and ele
vate tb people, be concludes more Juitly
that tb ner ha no spirit of improvement
ao disposition to adorn and beautify hi
bom and malt it attractive, but I content
to live a did hi father fifty year ago.
Therefore, ha can onlr pity the man who U
lect, not enjoying it himself nor yet permit,
ting other to do so.
Another evidence of old fbgyiim i to be

Mill cling to oz team. Almeet every wagon

Vine specie. A mult or hone team it about
in rare a tight a a well bniit, neat country

t greatly preferable to th Tenaeaw Ityle.
n dividing linei run to the cardinal point
f the com pus. Tb road are generally on
Sction lines, and bene tb farm ar in
good ibap and never cut up by roads run-
ting obliquely through them. Land range
from ten to thirty-five dollar per acr, with
eery little at the first figure. Notwithstand
ing the seeming high price, w believe It il
easier to pey for a farm her with th pro
ceed of tb tarn than in some part w
know of at fiv dollar per acre.

crowning advantage, here, t that a white

Th'it bring! ui to notice two convention
we attended In May field oa county court day.
It bad been publiibed for tomt time that tbe
democracy would bold a convention then,
and notwithstanding it wu very Inclement
day, the town wis literally thronged. The
udge wu requested to adjourn court that
th convention might meet la th Court
boose, which be readily did but no sooner
wu oourt ailjouvned than tb leading Had of
tbe place proclaimed tba he Wanted tb
anion mea of Grave eounty to meet in eon.
veuUo for th purpouof nominating can
didal tor President, and proposed th nam
of General Great, 'th man to whom Oca
era! Lee surrendered." Be then went to
th rear of th building and made the same
proclamation. Neither producing tbe duired
effect, b came again to th front and rnedo
another, the purport of which wu that he

however, and, to our utter uUMikhment,
not a tiogl Sambo to be wen. Tb orator
of Hi occasion wu goiag ahead la regular
spread eagle style, eulogising bit pert
nd denouncing every body els. He was
extremely bird on th third, or Independ
ent u be ityled them. He uld they bad
old oat to th Democrat for tb take of tbe
km vet and fiihut but entreated tb Demo
crats to make them go toot ana keep them
there, u they would betray every trust re
posed In them.
Having disposed of the third, be pitched
into the Democrat with Increased virulence,
charging npoa them everything that
mean and dishonest, aot even neglecting old
Buck, but making tb poor old fellow tbe
recipient of a doubl portion of hi venom:.
But when be cam to th President, be ex
celled bimtulfi W can't do him Justice.
We give np in despair. B said his party
had weed tb country from tecestion, rebel
lion and Democracy combined, and now on
of them could not be elected const able la tht
wool State of Kentucky. This, b aald,
wu all wrong, m tb Democrat would find
etc long to their cost ; tor after th next
Presidential lection, seettttoo, rebellion and
Democracy would aevu bo heard of any
more, aad then they would be glad to avail
themselves of th protection of union men
to shield them from the Indignation of a
jintly inotnud government. Truth it somo
tlmes ttianger than fiction, and even more
Strang tba It emanate from some source! at
UlL Wegiv him credit for at least one truth.
I speaklnt of changes, ho said they ware
eometimr Decenary. "For," said be, ue-
Iru ! ehaago, I will go atralght to h 11, u
tor tber is a God. W thought th
chsnr rvqntred to treat that few Radicals
woald ever make It; for now they have ihetr
bands to deep la Code Sam's pocket they
have no time to set about th necessary work,
and If tb Democrats succeed In getting them
out of place, they will be to busy tobemlng
to get beck that tb thought of change will
never eater their mind.
On negro quality, h said b wu not
afraid that tr black negro would ever outstrip
him, but did not say anything about mulct-
tou; and u to amalgamation, uld be would.
never marry a negro u long u tber wu a
white woman to be found, and If other
feared It, he would try to have a law -pasted
that they thould aot marry one unless thty
chcee; but of one blood bad God created all
th nations of th earth, and further, he wu
taught that God wu no respecter of persons ;
than why should w be. ,
After driving In thl styte about an
hour, be called Judge tomebody to the chair.
W thought if he wu a Judge of anything,
it wu mean whisky. Th Judge baring
taken the chair, th orator proposed tome
name u a committee to draft resolution.
Tb Judge Insisted that this wu bit prerog
ative. Tb committee being non tt mm
mm, however, be ald it mad no difference,
u be bad resolution already drafted, and u
it wu the eus Cods to bavt them cut and dry,
be would proceed to read thorn. Th reso
lutions wer recommendatory of Grant,
UHuiu.uuamry vi wuu..., auu tMwiwMr
tory oTlha President, 1 th extreme. They
wer all put at one and although tb house
wu nearly full by tbl time, six fully ex
pressed eye were all we could Count.
Tbe Kadi having got tbtongb, th Demo
crat then went Int convention. Tb ob
ject were well etated by a pleasant
talker, In a plain, off-band manner, u were
also the object of th Radical meetings Be
nid it was patent to every on that tbst bad
been set apart u th day of tb Democratic
convention, end that th Red took th start
of them, boo! nr. u th Democrat bad the
precedence and also th numerical strength,
they would Insist on tbtlr right? and prevent
the Kadi from meeting, and then they would
biv good thing to tend their friends
abtvadi that they wer not permitted to'
bold convention in their county town-
But wlecr couMeli prevailed, and thi big
gun it spiked by their own doings.
Th nam of George B. Pendleton, of
Ohio, wu presented to tbe convention u a
candidate for the Presidency, and let m as
sure von that It would bar taken a faster
counter than your bumble servant to bav

Ma. Eoiroat Your wortay Utter, alto
yonr teemed ptpct came to hand ia due
time.- I am very aorry to imform yoa that
there bt at present a very gloomy prospect to
affect my German neighbor! to emigrate to
yonr State, for the following reasons: Tbcu
Germans are of opinion that H I not proa-
table for aay whit laboring man to emigrate
into a State which Is governed by negrou,
m they am making the law of yonr,
Stale, they ahm pretend to be laborers,
although they do not Intend to labor much.
For thi reason It I expected that the negro
will be the enemy of a bard working Ger
man laborer, aad Inasmuch u they have tbe
power, and the white mea of your State are
entirely poweriew, It it dangerooi to honwrt
white labor in yonr State. Negro goremv
ment 1 rum tbe South, or any other coun
try, witbout fail. Thl bu been proven In
our own country. A lew years before the
war a rich tlaveholder from tbe South,
came here, to Mercer county, and set all bit
negrou free; and bought for each family a
nloe Uttl turn, and; at th present time,
these negrou do not own a foot of acid
farm. Give aach a chance to Carman emi
grants and yoa will set them rich before yoa
lam Mtltfied that th so-called loyal
white la the South, are digglag their own
grave, la which they will be buried soon
because their humanity is rotten, their poll-
tic corrupt end improvident, aad th
mighty dollar ia their Christianity. They do
not bau Slavery, but they bate the slave
