Editor Cairo Hullktin:
Dear Sir : Since last writing, wo havo
been honerod with a flying visit from
our future governor, Gustavo Ka-rner,
who addressed a respectable assembly nl
the court house, on tho evening of tho 'J2d
Inst. I did not see a kinky head In thu
crowd, all being Liberal Republicans nnd
decent radicals. Though the Governor is
not much of an orator, ho addressed the
people In such an honost manner that thoy
all eagerly caught every word utterod by
him. Ho answered somo of the leading
points in Gen. Logan's bpeeuh, lu a way
that would convince) any man with com
mon tense who had the interest of his
country at heart, instead of party, that
Logan is endeavoring to lead them on to
the point which will eventually prove
their ruin. Ho said Logan undertook to
answer tha'chiirges brought ugainst Grant,
but his (Logan's) memory was deficient
upon somo of Grant's uioU egregious er
rors or usurpations such as tho Snu Do
mingo iill'iilr and others. Gen, Logun
forgot that thero ever was such a transac
tion. Kourncr's speech as to facts, wns
such no speaker could rdfuto. Ho said he
would not ask his German friends to vote
for him merely on account of their affin

thought ho would do to entrust witli tho

From the St. Joo 1 Gazette ' wo extract
the following particulars of the finding of
llvo uead bodies in a wagon at Clermont,
Missouri, of which mention was made In
our telegraphic columns a few days since:

Colonel A. "P. Moorebouse, of tho Nodwav
' Democrat, ' wo were furnished with full
particulars of tho shocking affair.
On last Tuesdav a man drove into Cler
mont, fourteen miles northwest ol Mary
ville, with two horses and n covered
wagon, luo man bad broke too nccK
yoke of his wagon, und c pent somo timo
in trying to procure another. His actions
were somowhal strange. Ho was intoxi
cated, cave n little girl livo dollars to
bring him a drink of wotor, and seemed
much excited. Mr. John Gifley happen
ing near tho wagon, discovered a disa
greeable odor, and asked what ho had in
tho wagon that smelt so. 115 replied thut
it was u quarter of beef that was about
spoiled. Mr. Gifley asked him why he
carried such beef, to which ho made no re
ply. Soon after tho man left tho wagon.
Mr. Gifiey and others, thinking all was
not right," concluded to make an investi
gation. And such a sight as was re
vealed to their viow was enough to
" make the knee of terror quako and tho
face of darkness turn pale." There,
wrapped up in bed clothes, wero fivo hu
man beings, piled together, partly de
composed, and presenting as tad nnd
mournlul a spectacle as wha over beheld.
Tho victims wero two men, ono woman
und two children. The onildrcn wero
small, one a babe of two months, tho other
two years. One man, tho woman und
children had their throats cut from car to
oar. Thoy wore propably murdered in tho
wagon when found, us they wero in their
night clothe?. The oilier man win of
largo frame, and hud been killed by being
sliol in tliu licad nnd beaten with a club.
Ho had probably been sleeping under tho
wagon, us his body had been cut in two
for tho purposo of getting him V1 the
Tho feeling of tho citizens of Clermont
may bo well imagined when to dreadful a
crime was known to have been committed.
Many advocated instant death to such u
fiend in human form, who must havo com
mitted tho crime, but wiser counsels pre
vailed, and his lifo was spared, not how
ever, until ho inado n statement whut ho
knew ab'.ut thu crime, which lie did not do
until ho had the second timo felt his
weight at tho short end of tho rope. Ho
nt first said his prayers and made his peace
with his .Maker, but upon bolng let down
tho second timo ho mado tho ' following
statement : He said his namu was Osborn ;
that ids wife and wlfo'8 mother lived near
Mt. Ayor, in Ringgold county, Iowa. Ho
said hl mother-in-law's name was Delilah
vers, and thut ho had u littlu bov fivo
years old. Ho said tho name of tho mur
dered family wis Urines ; that they went
to Kansas from Minnesota lust spring;
tliat tho name of tho other murdered man
wns Dnniul Dickorson ; that ho had ac
companied the murdered family from
.Minnesota to Kansas, and was a cousin of
.Mrs, Urines, llo said tliat Joseph Wil
liams murdered tho party on lust Thurs
day night, near Holton, Kansas, and hirud
him for a conuiderution of $700 to conceal
tho bodies ; that ho sturted to do so, intend
ing to Fccreto mem in tlio Ilrst brush

tho wagon, from which ho had imbibed
frcoly, and ho had been drunk over since;
that ho desired to nut' thorn in thu
Missouri rivor. but that ho irut to
White Cloud In tiio duv timo. und
could not do so. Ho stated that
ho could not find any suitablo plaeo to

Alleokd Murpf.rer The Cause of
the Teiiiuiilk Massacre.
From the Leavenworth Times.
Yesterday morning a dlspntch from
Maryvillo, Mo., revealed tho Ifnowlcdgo
of a tcrrlblo murder near Holton, Thurs
day ol last week. Yesterday near tho
scono of tho muidor wo met Mr. E. II.
llelller of Nodaway county, Mo., who as
sisted in tho arrest of Osborn, nnd ono of
tho pnrty that forced tho confession from
him. The telegraph gave the nnino of tho
murdorcd family as Ohms, but tho real
nnmo Is Amies.
It impart of Osborn's confession that
"Williams murdered. Armos and his wlfo
and their two children, together with Mr.
Dickcrson, who was Mrs. Ames' cousin, in
oxecution of a tcrriblo threat ol veng
ancc, made several vcars ago. It seems
that Williams and" Armos woro rival
suitors for tho hand of Miss Dolilah Ayers,
of Ringgold county, Iowa. Doth suit
ors wero constant In their dovotlou, and
nt length tho lady decided to rccclvo a
proffer of marriago from Amies and reject
a similar proposal from Williams. The
discarded suitor is represented n having
been wildly and passionately in lovo with
tho young woman, and when sho an
nounced her determination to give her
hand in wedlock to his rival, his grief ond
rago wero uncontrollable. Ho vowed
then ho would kill hor nnd her husband
and all their posterity. It seems that
Amies and his wifo moved to Minnesota
soon alter their marriage, nnd subse
quently removed to southern Kansas.
Williams followed them to Minnesota and
Kansas, but lost track of them in this
stato nbout one year ago, and saw no more
of them until the meeting near Holton
last week. Two miles from Holton ho
consummated tho atrocious and bloody
vow of revenge, and paid tho wretch Os
borno $700 to secrete tho bodies.
William, tho alleged murderor, worked
for Rrumbly, a contractor on tho Leaven
worth narrow-gauge railroad. Ho is
nbout thirty-fivu years of age, sandy com
plexion, and five feet nino inches high.
Ho was seen in tho vicinity of Holton last
week. All tho police officers along tho
narrow-gaugo road are exerting them
selves to secure his capture Tho confes
sion of Osborne obtained nt tho end of a
rope, is believed to bo true. Much excite
ment prevails around Holton in conse
quence of the mosncro.
HOW IT WAS carried io'r the radicals
New York peclal to the Chicago Tribune.
Tho 'Tribuno' uunounces that it has re
ceived from Washington the following re
markable statement trom a gentleman who
holu high office under President Lincoln.
Tho gentleman ulltided to writes that tho
election in North Carolina took place on
the first of August. Tho Vnnderbilt, a
steamer not now engaged in tho Wash
ington trade, was brought hero under u
temporary commander for special ser
vice. Tho bertha and best furnituro were
removed und a contract mado for a trip to
Norfolk and return -for as many passen
gers us could bo stowed away. Fivo hun
dred dollars wero paid down in green
backs by a colored man for the trip, who
was put forward to mako tho barguin and
conceal his employers. Jletwecn 500 and
COO, somosuy 700, men composed tho party.
Not a woman was of tho crowd. Tho
Vnnderbilt left Washington on the even
ing of tho L'Vtli of July, four days before
thu election in North Carolina, and return
ed hero on tho morning of tho Ith of
August, threo days uftor that election.
Tho voyago thus consumed seven nnd a
hair days. Cotcmpornneously with this,
largo numbers of negroes employed by tho
contractors ot me Hoard or Public Works
mysteriously disappenred, and reappeared
when tho Vanderbllt returned, and a poor
attompt ha? been nindo to explain this
migration of repcators by calling it a reli
