For Superintendent of Fa I lie ehils,
COL.. JOIIX. F. WILLIAMS,
Desiring to mirage in other pursuit?, 1 htvt told
the Glasgow Times office to hit brother, Win,
A. Thompson, who hss been connected with the
piirier for several months past. He is in expert-
Meed printer and publisher, having been engaged
in the business lor twenty Tears. The friends of
the paper are assured that he will mnke tht Times
fully equal to what it has been in the past, and will
make such improvements as his judgment may die
tate and hit patronage justify.
The paper is in a prosperous condition. Its ad'
vertising patronage speaks for itself, while the
subscription list is nearly three timea as large as
when I took charge of it, and is still increasing,
The politics ot the paper will remain unchsnged,
and I would not dispose of it on any other condi
tion. The Radical party in Missouii must be
overthrown, and no more efficient auxiliary in this
patriotic work can be employed than well-sus
tained Conservative press.
The business of the office will in no manner be
interrupted by the change. All psst contracts for
advertising, subsciiption and fob work will
be filled by the near proprietor. I will be absent
from the city for a few weeks, and on mj return
will settle up tbe outstanding business of tbe office.
Thankful for the liberal patronage extended to
me, I am Very Respectfully,
JAS. B. THOMPSON.
Tht above announcement is complete enough,
with only a word from me in endorsement ot it.
To those who feel interested in keeping up a Con
servative paper in Glasgow, I can any your sup
port will not be lost upon me. No exertion of
mine, that can be made through the medium ot
these columns, shall fail of trial for the overthrow
of the red-handed dynasty that is trampling upon
the rights of the people of this State, and the te
peal of that nameless abomination, miscalled the
Constitution. To these ends I pledge my labor.
Tbe loca i interest, too, shall be well looked after ;
and I hope to be able, every week, to send out a
paper that may be read with pleasure ar.d profit.
The interests of this thriving city snd county shall
ever be first in my mind, ami The Times shall be
their champion. Soliciting a liberal support from
the pnblic, I am, with respect, their obedient eer
vant, WM. A. THOMPSON.
The Governor, in his proclamation published on
the first page of this paper, enjoins upon all good
citizens to report to his Excellency all violations
of the law. fn compliance with this request, we
call bit attention to the murder of Rev. 8. S.
Headlee, in Webster county, on the 28lb of July.
To tbe breaking up of a religious meeting in Liv
ingston county, on the 12th of August, by a band
of Radical bushwhackers. To the brei king up
ot a peaceable and lawful assemblage of citizens
of the same county, about the same time, by a
band of outlaws, led i-y a Radicnl member of the
Babeock legislature, named Porter. To the attack
upon and brutal treatment ot Lieut. Henry, late
ot the Union army, by a band ol aimed Radical
rangers, at MayaviUe, DeKilb county, on Satur
day August 16. We refer him to the resolutions
adopted by the Radical party of Andrew county,
wherein ministers are threatened with violence for
preaching the Gospel. To the murder of Silas
Smith, of Grundy county, a few days ago, by
three of the " flopperj" of that county. To the
recent righting in Ralls county, jn which nine men
Were kilted and wounded. To a body of armed
men stationed at Independence, in violation ot the
Constitution and subversive of the peace of the
State. We indict the Radical party ot Missouri
with tbia catalogue of crimes. Gov. Fletcher has
the power to stop these outrages, and he should do
it, by punishing tbe perpetrators of them. He
talks glibly about the enforcement of the registry
law, but gives us no specific intimation that those
whose bands are reeking with the blood ot an in
nocent minister of the Gospel shall be brought to
j'jstict. No body has threatened to resist the
registry law. Nearly every other law in the
statutes it violated by Radicals with impunity.
Let tbe Governor put bit own party in straight
jackets, and the Conservative party will see that
the registry and all other laws are enforced accord
ing to the letter and ipiiit of the Constitution.

At Home, August 17, 1866.
Mr. J. B. Thompson Dear Sir t In your paper
of last week, appeared the note which I wrote
you, in regard to the County Convention. The
last paragraph in that note reflects upon Mr. Hoi
liday in a manner that I regret. I did not intend
that note to be published. (I failed to mark it
private ) I make this statement in justice to my
self, and regret that I have injured the feelings of
one who has never injured me. Please insert this
in your next paper. Very Respectfully,
JOHN P. SEBREE.
treat Central Fairs
We bad the pleasure, in ecmpany with our ei-
timableriend C. H. Lewis, of this city, of ma
king t visit to Roanoke on Saturday last to attend
great Central Fair Mceeting at that place. There
was a large crowd in attendance, ind a deep in
terest was manifested by all present in the success
of tht project of establishing fair at Roanoke
for tht joint benefit of tht counties of Howard,
Chariton end Randolph. The meeting was held
on the grounds selected for the purpose, about t
halt mile east from Roanoke. The location is a
most admirable one, embracing thirty acres of
beautiful Woodland pasture, and as an evidence
that this matter it not "all talk and no cider,"
those having it in charge have gone to work, rut
ting out and burning thesurp'tls undergrowth, logs
and stumps, preparatory to putting the grounds in
order for a fair this Fall. If all the world was
as enterprising and determined as the people of
Roanoke, the Waste placet .would all bt made
glad, and every desert blossom as the rose.
Tilt meeting was presided over by Hon. A. W.
Morrison of this county, its object and purposes
stated by A. J. Herndon, Esq , of Fuyette, and
W. V. Hall acted as Secretary. An elaborate re
port of the proceedings will be found elsewhere.
It ia enough to say that the Society will hold a
fair this year, and we urge upon every one to lend
I helping hand. Become at once stockholders,
and prepare stock and other articles for exhibi
tion. The list of premiums should be published
at the earliest possible day. It should be published
(n sll four of the newspapers In the three eonnrfe,
but aa the publishers' eonvention'rates wilt not al
low the publishers to do the work for less than
full prices, It Would be too heavy for the associa
tion in its infancy. To remedy this matter, we
propose, if the other papers will do likewise, to
ublish the list for the first exhibition tree or
chaioe. If this ts not done, ine premiums, to
gether with the Constitution and by-lawt and
rules and regulations should be printed in pamph
let form, and given general circulation.
For tht Glasgow Times.
The Sleeting at Bnkor.
Ma. EniToa; We were there, and supposing
you would like to hear the particulars not seeing
any representative or. your oince present, aim uur

crowd began to gather about 10 o'clock, from all
quarters, me lair ones were many, rranaiin

announced, in front of Robert Turner's store, to
those grouped in squads to hear what their respec

the people the points in regnrd to voting ; after
which Maj. Cockerill made a very appropriate
speech, announcing himself as a candidal'! for the
legislature, suDject 10 me vonaervauve conven
tion. Then came A. J. Herndon, who spoke in
rich terms as not only to rivet the attention of all
nreseiit. but inspired them with confidence. They
seemed to respect him for his wisdom and patri
otism, having only at heart the public good. Mr.
J. A. Hollidoy next appeared, to vindicate him
self against an insinuation made by J. P. Sebree
in an article in the 71mc of last week, which
seemed to cause a little agitation through the
crowd so much so, that some of the members of
the Johnson Club, if not the greater portion, were
indignant that Mr. Sebree should pass by or treat
so lightly a man whom so many esteemed, and
would vote for Mr. H. having been one of the
foremost in getting up the Johnson club, and talk
ing to the people whenever necessary. The peo
ple of Boonslick are not slow to see the point, and
think they can muster a man as well qualtned
as faveite or any otner place, mr. noiuaav
termed reluctant at firt, but, being urged by bis
trends, made some very appropriate remarks Mr.
Sebree rep'ioit. bv saving that he did not intend
the article referred to for publication. Boonslick
is in for Hollitljy, ami is ' louchous" on the point.
Mr. Robinson, from near Franklin, made a long
speech and while he was rather ruterlainini; than
ornerwise. ne convinced tna people, i imnK, mar
he was on a wild goose chase. Mr. Herndon re
plied by way of giving him some fatherly advice,
ana tne people -'unsei. .
All tne candidates seemed pleasant and cneerrut ,
as though future glory awaited them. It was late
wnen me crowd dispersed, in good order save
those who stayed to the dance. K.
Maj. Gen. Thomas was in St. Joseph a few
days ago, en route for Omaha.
(y There is no doubt that Secretary Stanton it
about to retire from the Cabinet. The public have
been so often humbugged by reports of his retire
ment during the last three years, that every statu
mentof that nature is received with incredulity.
The pressure against him has become so strong,
however, and the political course of the Administra
tion so well defined, as to preclude any possibility
of his retention. The question as to his successor
is being actively canvassed, and not a little of the
pressure upon the President just now is upon this
subject. The two names most actively canvassed
are those of Gen. Steadman and Gen. Frank P.
Blair. The Western delegations are unanimous in
favor of the lattei, and the pressure in his favor
is very great. Gen. Steadman, however, is regar
ded as having the inside track, but the result of the
contest is doubtful.

Language is Inadequate to express tht emotions
and feelings produced by this occasion. Perhaps
I could express more by pcrmittli-g silence to
speak, and you '.o infer what I onjtht to say. I
confess that notwithstanding the experience I have
had in public life, the ords you have edilressed
to me on this occasion, and this assemblage, are
well calculated to, and do, ovl--whelm me. As I
have said, I have not language to convey adequate
ly inj purwiii imiii imhi -iiiui luifs, in listen
ing to the address which your eloquent and dis
tinguished cnauman nt just delivered, the pro
ceeding of the convention s they transpired were
recalled to my mind and partook of the inspiration
that prevailed in the convention. When I read a
dispatch by two of its distinguished members,
conveying in terms tne scene wtucn nas lust been
described of South Carolina and Massachusetts,
arm in arm, marching into that vast assemblage,
thus giving evidence mat the extremes had come
together, snd that for the future they were united,

th,.t in that vast body of men, distinguished alike
Tor intellect and wisdom, every eye was suffused

An the office, for my foelines overcame me. J think
we may justly conclude 'hat we are moving under
a proper inspiration, and that we need not be mis
taken, and that the favor ot an overruling and un
erring Providence is in this matter. We have just
passed through a mighty, a bloody and momentous
ordeal, yet we do not find ourselves free from the
difficulties and dangera that first surrounded us.
While our brave men have performed their duties,
both officers and men, (turning to Gen. Grant, wh
stood at his right,) while they have won laurels
imperishable, there are still greater and more im
portant duties to perform, and while we have had
their cooperation in the field, we now need their
support in our efforts- to preserve peace. ( Loud
cheers.) So far as the Executive Department of
tne uovernment is concerned, the effort has been
made to restore the Union, to heal the breach, to
pour oil into the wounds which were consequent
upon tne struggle, and, to speak in common pnrase,
to prepare, as the learned physician would, a plas
ter, healing in character and co-extensive with the
wound. (Loud cheers.) We thought, and yet
think, that we bad partially succeeded. But as
ine work progressed, at reconciiiuion seemed to
be taking place, and the country becoming united,
we found a uistuioing and warring element op
posed to us. In alluding to that element, I shell
go no further than did your convention, and tbe
distinguished gentleman who has delivered to me a
copy of its proceedings. I shall make no refer
ence to it that I do not believe the time and the
occasion justify. We have witnessed in one de
partment of the Government every effort, as it
were, to prevent the restoration ot peace and har
mony in the Union. We have seen hanging upon
the verge of the Government, as it wet e, a body
called, or which assumed to be, the Congress of
ine united states, and in lacl a congress or only
a part of the States. We have seen this Congress
assume and pretend to be for the Union, when its
every step and act tended to perpetuate disunion,
snd make a disruption of Ihe Slates inevitable. In
stead of promoting reconstruction and harmony,
its legislation has partaken or tne cnaracter or
penalties, retaliation and revenge. This has been
the curse and policy of one department ot our
Government. The humble individual who is now
addressing you, stands the representaiive of anoth
er department of the Government. The manner
in which he was called upon to occupy that posi
tion, I shall not allude to on this occasion. Suffice
it to say that he is here under the Constitution of
ine country, ana oeiug nere Dy virtue or its pro
visions, ne taxes nis stand upon tne charter or our
liberties, I Prolonged cheering.) Having been
taught in my early life to hold it sacred, and hav
ing uratucru upon u iiiiruiE mr wuoie oiiuiic ca
reer, I shall ever continue to reverence that Con
stitutionthe Constitution of the fatheis of our
country, and to make it my guide. ( Enthusiastic
cheers.) I know it has been said, (and I must be
permuted to indui-re in ine remark.) that tne Ex
ecutive Department of the Government has been
tyrannical. Let me . sk this audience of distin
guished gentlemen around me here to-day, to
point io a vote 1 ever care or to a speech I ever
made to a single act in my public life that has
not been v-gainst the tyranny and despotism that
has been exercised. As to myself, tne elements
of my nature, or th pursuits of my life, have no!
uiuuc in, uiici iii mj ircmigs ur practice, ag
gressive. My nature, on the contrary, is rather
defensive in its character. But I will say that,
having taken my stand upon the broad principles
of liberty and the Constitution, there is not power
enough on earth to drive me from it ( Proloneed
cheering.) Having pledged myself on that broad
platform, I have not been awed, dismayed or in
timidated by either threats or encroachments, but
have stood there, in conjunction with other patri
otic spirits, sounding the tocsin of alarm whenever
I deemed the citadel ot liberty in danger. (Great

occasions that my failli is abiding in the great
mass of the people-. In the darkest moment of
the great struggle, when clouds seemed to be most
lowering, my faith, inste id of giving way, looked
up through the dark clouds. Far beyond, I saw
all would be safe in the end. (Cheers.)
My countrymen, we all know that, in Ihe lan

We have seen a Congress that seemed to forget
that there was a Constitution and that there waa u

have seen a Congress in a minority assume to ex
ercise powers which, if allowed to be carried out,
would result in despotism or monarchy itself.

nothing more nor less than u reaffirmation of the

DECtARlTWJI OF PRINCIPLES.
The National Union Convention which assembled
in the city of Philadelphia, composed ot delegates
rrom every ante and territory in me union, ad
monished by Ihe solemn lessons which for (be lost
five years it his pleased the Supreme Ruler of the
Universe to five to the American people; pro
foundly greatful for the return of peace; desirous
as a large majority of 'heir countrymen are in all
atncerity io rorgei anu rorgive ine past) revering
the Constitution as it came lo us from our ances
tors; regarding the Uuion in its restoration as more
sacred than ever; looking wilh deep anxiety to the
future of instant and continuing trial, hereby is
sue and proclaim the following declaration of
principles anil purposes on which they have with
perfect unanimity agreeu;
First Wt hail with gratitude to Almighty God
the end ot war and the return of Peace to our af
flicted and beloved country.
Second The war just closed has maintained
the authority of the Constitution with all the
powers which it confers, and all the restrictions
which it imposes upon the General Government.
unabridged and unaltered, and it has preserved the
union wnn tne lawiui ngnts, dignity and author
itv of the States perfect and unimnaried.
Third Representation in the Congress of the
U S., and in the Electoral College, is a right
recognized by the Constitution as abiding in eve
ry State, and as a duty imposed upon the people,
fundamental in its nature and essential to the ex
ercise of our republican insiitutions; and neither
Congress nor tbe General Government hat any
authority or power to aeny tnit rigni to any, or
withhold its enjoyment under the Constitution
from the people thereof.
Fourth We call lion the people of Ihe United
Stales to elect 4 Cj)ress as members none but
men who admit Ihif Tiinilamental neht of repre
sentation and who will receive to seats tbe Loyal
representatives irom every state in allegiance to
the United States who will submit to the Consti
tutionality of each House to judge of the election
returns and qualifications of its members.
Fifth That the Constitution of the United
States and the laws thereof are the Supreme law
of the land, anything in the Constitution or laws
of any State to the contrary notwithstanding. All
the powers not conferred by the Constitution on the
General Government nor prohibited by the States
are reserved to the States. The right to prescribe
qualifications for the elective franchise therein,
which right Congress cannot interfere with. No
State or Convention of Stales hat Ihe riht to
withdraw from the Union or to exclude, through
their actions in Congress or otherwise, any Slate
or States from Ihe Union. The union of these
States is perpetual.
Sixth Amendments to the Constitution of the
United Stales may be made by the people thereof
as they may deem expedient, but only in the mode
pointed o t by its resolution, and, proposing such
amendments, whether by Congress or by a con
vention, and in ratifying the same, all Ihe States of
the Uuion have an equal and indisputable right to
a voice and a vote therein.
Seventh Slavery is abolished and forever prohib
ited, and there is neither desire nor purpose on
the part of the Southern States that it should ever
he re-estahli-hed upon Ihe soil or within thejuris
diction of the United States, and the enfranchised
slaves in all the States in the Union receive, in
common with all their inhabitants, equal protec
tion in every right of persojj and property.
Eighth While we rsgard at utterly invalid
and never to be assumed or made of binding force
any obligation incurred or undertaken in making
war against the United States, we hold the debt of
the Nation to be sacred and inviolate, and we
proclaim our purpose in discharging this as in
performing all Ihe national obligations to maintain
unimpaired and nninpeaebed tht honor and faith
ot the republic.
Ninth It is the duty of the National Govern
ment to recognize the services ot the Federal sol
diers and sailors in the contest just closed, by meet
ing promptly and fully all their just and rightful
claims for I lie services they rendered the nation,
and by extending to those of them who survived,
and to the widows Slid orphans of those who
have fallen, the most generous and considerate care.
Tenth In Andrew Johnson, President of the
United State, who in his great office has proved
steadfast in his devotion to the Constitution, the
laws and the interest ot this country, unmoved by
persecution and undeserved reproach, having faith
unmeasurable in the people aud ihe principles of
the Government, wt ratognize a Chief Magistrate
worthy ot the nation and Ihe great crisis upon
which his lot is cast, and we tender to bim in the
discharge of his high and responsible dutict our
profound respect, anl assurance of our cordial
After the vote had been taken on the adoption
of the foregoing "Declaration of Principles," it
was found that tht reading of the seventh one
had been omitted hy accident, and thia fact was
announced by Senator Duoliltle. It waa then
read and adopted with great applause and unani
mity, ine "Declaration or Principles" waa then
adopted as a whole with enthusiastic cheers. ,
After the adoption, three cheers were called for
and given, in the most enthusiastic manner, for
Senator Cowan, of Peansylvania.
Senator Cowan ackiewiedged the compliment,
but said that as he considered himself the host ot
Ihe Convention one of his distinguished guests
would address by virtue of authority unanimous
ly derived from the Committee on Resolutions
and address, namely, tbe Hon. H. J. Raymond, of
Mr. Raymond, therefore, proceeded to read the
address which had been written by himself, as
had also been the "Declaration of Principles."
He was so frequently interrupted by applause that
the chairman appealed to the Couventiuu to re
al rain such maiiifeatatitni until the reading of the
address should be concluded Nevertheless, at
the close of the sentence, declaring that "no
people subjected to tuch treatment at that to
which the South waa now subjected could long
remain loyal," cheer after cheer resounded through
luv wigwan. j
Senator Johnson asked that the lenience be rc
pealed. The sentence svss read again as follows:
--no peopie nas ever existeed wnose loyalty and
faith such treatment, long continued, would not
alienate ami impair. The ten millions of Amen
cans who live in tht South would be unworthy
citizens of a free country, degenerate sons of a
i eroic ancestry, unlit ever to become tne guardl
ans or ine rigtils and litertiee bequeathed to us
by the fathers and foundari of tht republic, if
they could tccept with ancomplaining submissive
new the humiliation thus sought to bt imposed up
on them. .. 1 1

gint Hi first session, Monday, September
Fof hearty twenty years, the Principal bat been
an earnest laborer in Ihe cause of Education irt
Missotlrli Relying on his extensive acquaintance,
he submits to the appreciative communities of
the State some of the claims of his School to their
confidence and patronage.
1. Its Prrmamckcv. To make it permanent,
and to begin a foundation for present and future
usefulness, Rev. J. O. Swinney hat generously do
nated to it $20,000 in Endowment and School
Property. The Principal, assisted by Instructors
of thorough competency, expects to devote lo it
the best energies ot his remtinmg life. The bope
ii cherished, not only by himself, but by bis gen
erous friend, that it will be, not only an Institution
of blessing to the present generation, but one to
increase in resources and usefulness for genera
tions to come.
2. Accommodations. The School building is
amply eommoifiofis for the number of pupils to
be received, ia eligibly situated, and it to be fitted
and furnished in superior style.
8. School Plais. It aims to combine the ad
vantages of both the Grammai School and College.
The instructions comprise I, English Language and
literature X, Mathematics J a, J! ncient Classics
4, Modern Languages ; 6, Natural Science ; 6,
Metaphysics and Moral Philosophy; 7, Logfc.
Rhetoric and Political Economy ; 8, Instrumental
and Vocal M isic. As soon asa Charter it obtained,
a detailed course of instruction will be published.
That large class of pupils wno are in elective stud
ies, can receive certificates for such branches aa
they eompltte ) and the smaller number, who
aspire to a full collegiate course, can here receive.
when they art earned, all the customary 8cbool
4. Apmissiok. We neither leek a large school
nor crowded classes; hence no scholar wi 1 be
received who has not attained 'the "entrance
grade." This will insure to students, 1, Proper
Classification; 2, Systematic Ptudyt 3, Ample
time to learn and recite.
5. Ohde ard Emulation. We reckon it a
recommendation to our School that it placet boys
and girls in such relation to each other as to afford
opportunity for the most refined emulation in learn
ing and manners.
7. Discipline. This it to be firm, but mild snd
uniform. We desire po pupil who is not disposed
to yield a ready and cheerful obedience to the in
ternal and external regulations of School. The
discipline respects these three circumstances.' 1,
Attendance ; 2, Conduct ; 3, Scholarship. Daily
records of these are kept. Students who become

7. Special Instbuction. Younar eentlemen or
ladies who wish to pursue special branches of
higher Mathematics, Mechanic! or Astronomy,
can find no more liberal assistance in the West than
we can afford tbem. We expect, as aoon as prac
ticable, to furnish our school with the more im
