The Impression seems to have gone
abroad, that Andrew Johnson is tho

as the candidate for President. Our
limited information on the subject
leads us to a widely different conclu
sion. That he has supporters in Ten
nessee, wedo not deny, but we believe
they are those who co-oporated with
him during the war, and that outside
of that particular class, the Conserva
tives would prefer many men to him.
This point, will, however, soon be
settled by his disqualification for the
office by his conviction nnd removal.

One day Henry heard a great noise,
and having discovered that it was a
steamboat' coining up the river,
concluded that he would try his luck
in a little trade. He caught a large
turkey, and putting it across his
shoulder, started toward the river.
To his great delight, the boat soon
lauded at a wood-yard. Ho went on
board and offered to sell his turkey.
Henry was what very knowing peo
ple call "grcen" That is, he knew
but little of tho world. Some persons
on the boat began to talk to him and
amuse themselves nt his expense.
This continued until the boat pushed
off, and up the stream went tho steam
boat, Henry and his turkey. Before
very long, they stopped at another
anding, paid Henry a large price for
his turkey, and he, with a heart full
of Joy, started on foot back to his
home. , He reached there safely, with
larger views of the world than he had
before entertained. With his en
larged Ideas of the world, he con
eluded to go out In search of employ
ment. He did not know much ; but
lie could work and was not afraid to
Henry had also a tender conscience,
and felt that he ought to use to the
l?st advantage, the energies which
his creator had given him.

small village a county seat. Po
doubt but that the little wanderer felt
awed at finding himself in a town
among so many houses and so many
people. And thero before him stood
the court-house, the largest building
he had ever seen. But ho was a child
of nature. He meant honestly, there
fore he feared no evil.
Soon after reaching town, he ac
costed a plain looking man and asked
for work. The man of course eyed
him closely. He saw before him a
slender youth, of heavy complexion,
without shoes, and .without a hat.
" Why, what can you do?" asked
the man, as his kind, humane heart
softened toward the needy looking
"I can plough, Sir," answered
Henry, very promptly.
" Well, " said the man, " I have a
piece of ground out here, and if yu
will, yon may plough It for me, ana I
will py you for It. "
Henry's face brightened, and his
little heart beat high with hope. .
In due time he went to work, and
late and early, he was at his post.
Nothing tempted him from his self-
imposed task. For three months he
continued to plough and cultivate
that piece of ground, without ior,
and without a hut.. At last the little
crop wns'lald by.
In til" niuantlnio his employer naU
opened u small grocery In tho village,
and found It necessary to keep scores
against his customers now and then.
Ho liked Henry so much that he told
him to wine into the grocery and
keep the scores for him.
Henry got a piece of chalk and
learned In make figures on the barrel
heads. Thus ho took his first lessons
in Arithmetic This continued for
some time, but his heart yearned for
a companionship it hail not yet
known. His mind agonized with
craving for food. It was hungry
for such fotsl as can only bo had by
tho stuily of books. Few Isioks were
within Ills reach. Such as ho cottlil
get were read again ami again, iiis
struggle with poverty nnd tlio many
ailvern elivunistance which sur
rounded him, was very great, but his
determination to succeed was even
greater. By those who knew mm, no
was nt tcl us a closo still lent ami a

had no doubt taught him to ask of
God whatever he desired.
Very slowly, but surely, step by

It gives us pleasure to transfer to
our columns, the following deserved
compliment to our tnllented young
townsman, J. W. Jones Esq., believ
ing that he will make good the prom
ise of useful distinction in the future.
From the Galatln Examiner.
T1IE CKKKO.MAM Xl'D.
Mr. Editor : It is seldom that the
citizens of Galatln and vicinty have
an opportunity of Indulging in a rare
intellectual least like that ot last Fri
day night at the hall of the Howard
Female College.'.' Tlie "Ciceronian
Club, animated by that enterprising
spirit which characterizes their asso
ciation, invited Mr. J. W. Jones, of
Clarksville to deliver an oration be
fore that body on the evening of the
loth Inst. Mr. Jones was compara
tively but littlo known In this com
munity, as a public speuker; there
were a few, who knew him as such
but, was more generally known here
as a schoolboy, arduous in study and
giving promise for tho future its a
soldier under the colors of the "lest
cause" devoted to his country and suf
fering from wounds received while
Tlie subject ofr his "oration was
"Our young men their duties and
their prospects. " Every one in the
audience was delighted with the orig
inal manner In which the orator
treated of tills subject, and charmed
with the elegance of his diction and
the licauty of his metaphors. He di
rected the attention of tlie young men
to the field of literature as being one
full, of inviting beauties, anil open to i
many triumphs: and dwelt upon the
importance of a national literature as
attording an eflectlvo remedy for our
national dissensions. We regret that
the inclemency of tlie weather pre
vented many from attending, who
wiuid have been present had the eve
ning Ikjcii more favorable. As it was,
a very good audience in point ot
numbers, was seated in the audito
rium, and as regards Ixiauty nnd in
telligence, tlie collection was "non
pareil." Mr. Jones held this assem
blage by his eloquent and practical
remarks "as one oreatning in mea
oration in print,
AVe hope to see this!
We think it deserves
careful reading. Melas,

HeHintnnre Mnl DeMh.
Tlie description given by the citi
zens of Russcllvllle of the two daring
freebooters who kept the citizens at
buy while others of the bond robled
tlie bank, not only enabled detective
Bligh, of Louisville, to identify one of
them in the person of Geo. W., ainn
Jack Sheperd, now Imprisoned In
Louisville, but to ascertain that the
other one was the hitter's cousin, Oli
ver Shepard, who had returned Im
mediately after the roblicry to his
home in Jackson county, Missouri.
Officer Bligh then forwarded to the
bankers and police of that section a
circular describing the person, and in
forming them that, from Information
lie had obtained in working up tlie
Russell vUle afftilr, he (Bligh) was sat
isfied that Shepherd had been con
cerned In certain startling bank rob
beries in Missouri. The sequel will
bo gathered from tlie following ac
count, which we clip from the Inde
pendence (Mo.) Sentinel of April
Many of our readers saw the ac
count of the bold and daring robbery
of the bank at Russell ville. Ky.,some
two or three weeks airo. The act was
committed so publicly that many of
me citizens who witnessed it were en
abled to give an accurate description of
the perpetrators. On t ridav. 3d lust..
Deputy Sheriff Strode received a doc
ument containing a description of one
who was engaged m tho robbery,
which said description suited Oliver
Shepherd, who had been absent from
tils home, in Lee's summit, in this
county, for several weeks. Mr. Strode
learned that Shepherd returned home
resoiveti to arrest mm. lie accord
ingly took the eight o'clock P. M..
train, nnd went to Leo's Summit.
He there called upon some ten men
to go to Shepherd's house, surround it
and wait until daylight, when he
(Strode) would inform Shepherd of
his business, i tie party nt once pro
ceeded to Shepherd's house, but he was
not there. They learned thut he had
left that evening in his carriage, tak
ing with him his family. They re
turned and reported to Mr. Strode,
who ordered them to search the neigh
borhood for him. Under these orders,
they went to the house of Shepherd's
father, where they found his carriage.
This was between three nnd five in
the morning. The Cuptain of tlio
party stationed tho men around tlie
house, and then called to know if
Oliver Shepherd was there, and was
answered by a female that he was not;
but at the same time they heard him

with him, called to him and told him
that they had been sent by tlie Sheriff
to arrest him, and that it he would

Shepherd replied, with oaths, that he
would give them h II as si win as he
got ills clothes on, nnd at the same
timo fired two or three shots through
the weather-boarding lu the direction
of the party who were talking to him.
Two or three shot were returned, but
no one hurt. Tlie parties without

The Milwaukee Democrat states1
that some eight months- ago; Mr. T.
B. Mason, of that oltyr ascertained
that he had a cancer on Ida face the
size of a pint It was cut out by Dr.
Wolcott, and the wound partially
healed.- Sulmcqucntly it grew again,,
and while? he was in- Cincinnati on
business, It attained thesizo of a hick
ory nut. He' remained there-since
Christmns undif' treatment,, and U
now perfectly cured. The process Is
this : A piece of sticking plaster was
put over tlie cancer, with a circular
piece cut out of tho center a little lar
ger than the cancer so that tho .
cancer and' a small circular rim of
healthy skin next to it were exposed.
Then a plaster nindo' of chloride of
zinc, blood root and wheat flour, was
spread on a Piece of muslin the slzo
of this circulni1 opening and applied
to the cancer for twenty-four hour.
On removing it, tlie cancer- will bo
round burnt Into and appear of tho
col lor nnd hardness of an old shoo
sole, and the circular rim outside of
it will appear white and parboiled, as
it seamed py not steam. The wound
Is not dressed, nnd tlie outside rim
soon separates, nnd tho cancer comes
out iu a hard lump,, nnd tlie plaeo
heals up. The plaster kills tlie can
cer,, so that It sloughs out like dead
flesh, and never grows again, tho
remedy was discovered by Dr.. Fell,.
of Ignition, and has been uwod by hiim
for six or eight years, with unfailing
success, anil not a case litis been known

snow, sleet and rain at this season of
the year. Hut we are always apt to
forget in contemplating tlie present.
The swallows invariably come to
Kentucky on tho night of the 17th of
April, and leave ou the 10th of Sep
temlier. There Is always lgid weather before
and after they come. After nineteen
years' observation I find this to be
tho fact. All corn planted about tho
time swallows conio rots in tlio
ground. If, however, the corn Is put
in the ground early in April so as to
take root before tho swuiiow storm it
will not be injured, otherwise it will
rot. I would like my friends In tho
country, especially in Indiana, to no
tice the swallows, and the weather
before and afterwards, anu lei me
know the result of their observations.

that the "sacred schisil fund " of tho

low into spasms of virtuous Indigna

to be indirectly squandered nn tlie
