While J he Republican Senator! in
Washington ate calling ijenators traitors
because the accused Senators do
not agree with the administration
? ?)>n.r ib? Phillininp* ftt the
yviivj V4 >MV
moot ho? cannoo^Republicans in Kentucky
are engaged in a conspiracy to
rale and terrorize that State by the
use of the rifle.
Ttie shooting of Goebel, the Democratic
Governor, for the pnrpose of
disponing of his title to the office, has
shocked tbe whole nation. The circa
instances at this distance teem to
lead irresistibly to tbe conclcuiou that
tbe attempted assassination was deliberately
planned, and i? the re6nit of
a well laid and planned conspiracy by
the Republicans. The conspirators
likely ioclade many of the prominent
Republican leaders of ihe State, and
fro<& bis condnct we ma?t couclode
that Governor Taylor, himself, the
Repnb'isan contestant for t be office of
Governor, either participated in ihe
conspiracy or was folJy cognizant of
it. The shooting of Mr. Goebel would
bare been deplorable hid it *lmpljr
been (be act of some hot headed fool,
but when it appears to have been the
plot of those high in the Republican
councils of the State, it is worse, and
makes U3 doubt whether the people of
that State are fit to gorern themselves.
The eviileuee is strong against Taylor
and hi* lieutenants. Mr. Goebel was
ou bis why to the State capitol in
Frankfort, sad a n amber of shots were
Sred from different directions, as the
woandrd man lay on the ground, and
the evidence siows that some of tbe
shots, very likely tbe fatal thot, came
from the buildirg where tbe leading
Republicans were quartered. The
faet that smokeless pewder was ased
fchowg planning. Tne accurate aim
shews that a crack shot had been carefully
selected for the awful work.
Ctrefal plans had been made to prevent
the discovery and arrest of tb?
jg- assassin. When it became know* *V i
the shot, which strock Mr. ( ieoe!
^? came from o?e of the building' netr
the capitoi, the bn;ldiug w surrounded
witb a view of saptnrxL * the
villain, but "groups 01 asoautam, :r?,
who stood in tbe doorways holding
Winchester rifles is their bands and
presenting an aspect so uninviting
that mo attempt wu mide to search
tbe building for several- miuntes after
the shooting had been done, and tbe
assassin bad ample time to escape."
Why were these mountaineers at this
building with Winchesters? How did
it happen thai the assassin was so securely
guarded? And we believe it
was stated teat brov, rayior mmseix
was in this building. We firmly be*
lieve'.hat tbe shooting ofGoebel tra?
a well calculated and conceived plan
of tbe Republican* to prevent bis being
made Governor, and we farther believe
that tbe Republican leaders had
a band in tbe conspiracy. Governor
Taylor seizUg the opportnnity immediately
ordered oat the m&litia
under the pretext of desiring to maintain
O! der, but bis subsequent conduct
shows that the militia were to be n-ed
to carry oat the rest of the Republican
program. He adjourned the legisla<
tare. Who ever heard of a Governor
of a State orderiug the legialatnre to
adjoara," a power enpyed only by
kings? Bat this was the plan Governor
Taj !orTa militia when ordered oat
fitaply followed ibe Democratic legh;
lators around and prevented them
from lawfully assembling a< a legslatire
body--doubtless the rea> obj-ct
of calling oat the militia He then
orders the legislature to meet Id Lo;?d>n,
a small town among the mountaineers
and strong Republicau eoantv.
I>Onbtle*s'the mountaineers who furroandsd
Goebel's assts^in lire there,
and worse deeds may be plana d i n
the Republican program.

releasing Stenographer' Walker. He
avoided for the present a cla*b between
the militia and the State courts. The
Republicans lost the sympathy of a 1
conservative citizens io the country
? by thair defiance of all law aud *rd? r.
? When the coarts become powerless u
< euforce its judgments tben Republican
institmton* are at an end, and that is
about what bas happened iu Kentucky.

seemed to be for his personal safety,
and I think was chiefly o j that account
that he left in the midst of the crisis."

This will amount to defeating the-'

aition, ai;d every n?w House may pre- {
icribe iiS own (pecnli&r and rpscial j
qualifications. For inatance, a Ke-j
publican Hotse may say that South j
Carolina has disfranchised a large c'a?a |
of her ciiizcns, and no ^pFwenfatsve I
from this State should be neated. If a;
Republican mprity is needed very!
badly, the Republican? would not I:
hesitate to take aach & position. Ini1

makes the House of R3pre-?eo*atires )

That instrument is no ionger a guide ;

We learn that those in authority hare j
