FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1877.
Six PKRSONS have been indicted for
murder, and twenty-five as accessory to
murder, in Kemper county, Miss., the
greater part of them being implicated in
the riots in which Judge Ohisliolm was
massacred. It is not certain that these
indicted murderers will get their just
deserts from a Kemper county jury, but
that the authorities have made a move
to indict them is a hopeful indication.
THE New York World, the leading
Democratic paper of the-country, thinks
that Grant's remark, the other day,
that the Democrats could be trusted to
kick over their milk-pail when it was
nicely filled, had enough truth in it to
make it wholesome, and unpalatable to
Democratic managers." The Democra
cy of this county have ceased to have a
milk-pail, and have not spirit enough to
kick it over if they had one.
THE following vigorous protest against
the use of musical instruments in wor
ship, taken from the works of the fam
ous Dr. Adam Clarke, the commentator,
serves to show how the religious world
has progressed since his time:
If there was a woe to tliem who invented in
struments of music, as did David under the
law, is there no woe, 110 curse to those who in
vent them and introduce them with the wor
ship of God in the Christian church? I am an
old man and an old minister and 1
he+edeclare
that I never knew them productive of any good
in the worship of God, and have reason to be
lieve they were productive of much evil. Mu
sic as a science 1 esteem and admire, but in
struments of music in the house of God 1
abominate and abhor.
Ohio.
We take no especial pleasure in an
nouncing to our readers that Ohio took
one of her proverbial flip-flops last Tues
day, and elected a Democratic Governor
and Legislature by a majority anywhere
from 20,000 to 35,000. The funny part
of it is, that the result took both parties
by surprise. There was an element of
uncertainty in the question of from
which side the workingmen's movement
and the two Greenback factions would
draw the most votes. As it turned out,
almost all the loss fell on the Republi
cans, and their opponents, without in
creasing their vote of last year, found
themselves in a large majority. By this
untoward event the Democrats gain a
United States Senator, and, of course,
arc hugely tickled over their unexpect
ed success. The only other parties who
are pleased about it are the Republican
implacables, who see in it a rebuke to
the President for attempting to reform
the civil service.
Election Notes.
Gear runs several hundred behind his
ticket in Blackhawk county. The coun
ty goes Republican by a round majority.
Jessup will have over 200 votes in the
county.
Fayette county goes Republican by
1,000 majority. Rickel, for Represent
ative, has 200 majority.
Bronson, Dein., is elected Senator in
Delaware county by about 500 majority,
the result of a county seat fight.
Dubuque county goes Democratic as
usual, by a reduced majority. The en
tire Democratic legislative ticket is
elected.
Thos. Updegraff, Rep., is elected to
the House from Clayton county.
Wells, the Democratic candidate for
the House in Grundy county, is elected.
The Republicans gain a member of
the House, Foster, in Scott county al
so one, Miles, in Jackson county. They
lose a Senator in Lee county, and the
Greenbackcrs elect a Representative in
Webster. The political complexion of
the Legislature will not be materially
changed from the last.
King, of Hampton, Independent Re
publican, is elected in the IJampton
Cerro Gordo district, over Knapp, of
Mason City, the regular Republican
candidate for the House.
The Rock-Founded Party.
"Gentlemen," said the impassioned or
ator, "the Republican party is like a
ship which, with leaking hull and tatter
ed sails, lags over the ocean, destined
never to make port, and at last sinks be
neath the bosom of the sea. But the
Democratic party may be likened to a
mighty man-of-war, with resistless bul
warks and towering masts and perennial
bob-stays and snowy sails, that, like a
thing of life, bounds over the billows,
and buffets the surges, and defies the
gale, and never sinks. [Cheers.] And
why doesn't she sink? Because, gentle
men, she is founded on a rock." [Wild
applause.]
Conkling's Chairman.
Last winter, along about February,
Senator Conkling sent his tool, Piatt, on
a pilgrimage to Columbus to make a
bargain with Hayes. He wanted the
latter to pledge himself to appoint Piatt
Postmaster-General, and to give him
(Conkling) free control of the 7,4(55 Fed
eral appointments of New York, and in
consideration thereof he (Conkling)
would use his influence to have Hayes
"counted in" for President! Mr. Hayes
repelled the dishonorable proposals, and
gave Mr. Piatt to understand that he
was not engaged in the bargain and sale
business. Piatt, returned to his master
crestfallen and full of malice. Thence
forth Conkling not only had the sulks,
but plotted with his political opponents
to compass Hayes' defeat in Congress.
He had an elaborate speech prepared
against confirming the award of the
Electoral Commission, but at the last
moment, t» the chagrin of his co-con
spirators, he bad not the courage to de
liver it but lie has nursed his wrath to
keep it warm, packed the State conven
tion, and then played the bully and cow
ard.
One of Lincoln's Anecdotes.
There was a story which President
Lincoln was fond of telling of himself,
that humorously illustrates the perti
nacity of some office brokers and the
tribulations of the appointing power.
There was a certain Senator who may
be called Jeremiah Jones. The Hon.
Jeremiah Jones was mainly distinguish
ed, as Mr. Lincoln asserted, for his in
dustry in seeking places for his friends.
In the hottest and most dangerous
Jiours of the war the Hon. Jeremiah
Jones waited upon Mr. Lincoln and
asked him to make sure to put this man
into tliat place and the other man into
fliis nla.ee in order that certain results
which be liad in view might be carried
wit. The President was one day asked
ly a friend to give him a Urief abstract
of what he did during the day, and the
President said to lyin with that sly
twinkle in his eye which we can all im
agine, "Well, my friend. I eat my break
fast, and then I go to headquarters to
hear the latest news from the army
and then 1 eat my dinBcr, and then go
to headquarters and hear the latest
news from the army, and then I drink
my tea and go to headquarters and hear
the latest news from the army, and
then
I
go to my chamber and make
ready for bed, and 1 say my prayers and
look under the bed to see if Jerry is
there, and if »ot, I thaok God and
bounce in."
The County Fair.
The Fair of the Buchanan County
Agricultural Society, that closed last
Saturday, was the most successful and
satisfactory, both in the number and
variety of the articles on exhibition,
and in the financial results, ever held
under the .auspices of the society. In
deed it may be called the first success
ful fair under the present management,
the weather, hard times and other det
rimental causes conspiring heretofore
to detract from the interest and success
of the exhibitions.
The stock department was very full,
and the displays of cattle and hogs were
especially satisfactory. In the line of
blooded cattle, a large number of Short
Horns were on exhibition, from
the splendid herd of S. T. Spanglcr, of
Buffalo township. Animals in this herd
carried off the sweepstakes premiums.
E. Miller & Sons, J. H. Sheridan, Geo.
Brooks and others, exhibited very fine
animals of this breed. W. M. Young
exhibited some fine Devon cattle.
In the sheep department, we noticed
some very flue Leicesters exhibited by
Jas. Young, of Westburg, better known
as the '"Westburg poet." Mr. Young is
as successful as a slieperd as in court
ing the muses. He has been at some
pains and expense in testing the profit
ableness of sheep husbandry in this sec
tion, and thinks he has found the solu
tion of the problem in the Leicesters,
which he declares will thrive in our
winters, even without shelter, if given
enough to eat. The specimens he Ex
hibited were splendid.
The array of hogs on exhibition, most
ly by breeders in this immediate vicini
ty, were a most gratifying indication of
the growing importance of this branch
of husbandry, and the intelligent and
successful efforts our fanners are mak
ing to improve the quality of the stock.
First on the list comes A. McGowcn
of Jefferson township, who had 40 hogs
of the Poland China breed on exhibition,
15 of which he sold during the fair, for
remunerative prices. An object of
special interest in one of his pens, was
"Miss Moore," a sow, 3 years and 5
months old, who has raised 41 pigs, 30
of which sold for $450.
Mr. C. H. Potter, a breeder from
Vinto n, Benton County, had a couple
of pens of very fine Poland China
swine, mostly young, and showing the
best points of that favorite breed. Mr.
Potter's exhibit attracted much atten
tion and favorable comment, and he sold
a number of pigs at prices ranging from
$15 to $35. Mr. Potter took the sweep
stakes premium for best 5 pigs of any
breed under 6 months old.
M. & Y. W. Davis, of Westburg, were
on hand with their splendid specimens
of Berkshire swine. Their entries were
all splendid specimens, but that attract
ing the most attention was a sow and
pigs, that took the first premium of this
breed, the sow also, taking the sweep
stakes prize of $10, for best sow of any
breed. G. S. Dean, E. Miller, J. P.
Hale and Clias. Ldall, had very fine
stock of the breed, and took premiums.
The Chester Whites were also in force,
and showe some very fine specimens,
among them a boar, by G. M. Miller,
which took the first premium. We no
ticed also, some excellent Cheshire, and
Short-faced Lancashire. Taken all in
all, the hog department was equal to
the blooded cattle show, and both were
as good as the State Fair.
There were some thirty coops of fowls
on exhibition, comprising all the best
breeds of poultry, and making a very
attractive show, Our prominent breed
ers were all represented, and all carried
off a share of the premiums, the premi
um on largest display and best pair of
fowls being given to C. B. Kandy.
The Floral Hall was especially bril
liant this year, and was filled with a
profusion of fancy, useful and artistic
articles domestic manufactures, musi'
cal instruments, sewing machines, &c.i
all arranged in a style that did credit to
the ladies in charge, and presenting an
attraction which drew the crowd in ever
admiring numbers. Our space would
not admit of a description of a tithe of the
articles and decorations in this depart
ment. The ladies came out in strong
force, with all sorts of tasteful exhibits,
the large display of paintings from the
artistic hand of Miss Hattie Freeman
coming in for especial attention and ad
miration. In the decoration of the hall,
we cannot refrain also, from mentioning
the large inscription, "Buchanan County
Agricultural Fair," in evergreens and
ferns, by Mrs. E Leach, most tastefully
executed.
In the wing of the same building, de
voted to fruits, vegetables, dairy and
farm products and pantry stores, there
was a very full and tasteful display.
The list of premiums awarded, printed
in another place, will give a very fair
idea of the variety found in this depart
ment.
The display of fruits, though credita
ble, was not so complete as at former
fairs, but the vegetables and grains were
never better, and afforded a very fair
illustration of the rich products of this
prolific year. J. J. Travis, of this city,
took the first premium on corn, J. A,
Miller on the best wheat, J. S. Bouck
(5n best display of apples, A.. Beds on
best display of vegetables.
The display of implements was not
large, but that of manufactures was
fair and creditable to our mechanics.
The receipts of the Fair will amount
to about $1,600, which will go far to
lift the Socicty out of its embarass
ments, caused by tho failure of last
year's fair.
REPORTS of majorities in 60 counties
in the State, give Gear 24,000, Irish 3,
000. Gear's majority over Irish, 21,
000. It is estimated that the remaining
counties will increase Gear's majority
to 35,000. The Legislature will have a
Republican majority, on joint
ballet,
60 at least, if not more.
He Kills a Negro Willi a Pistol -An Old
Exploit Told Anew.
The reports of the killing of a negro
in Madison county by Cassius M. Clay
vary in sonic particulars, but agree gen
erally in the following statement of
facts:
While Mr, Clay was engaged in the
Presidential canvass he lost a great
deal of stock, which he had reason to
believe had been stolen by a negro
named Perry White, who lived on his
place, and who had been raised by him.
Perry was ordered to quit the premises
For this lie threatened Mr. Clay, but
did not come to carry his threat into
execution. A short time ago Mr. Clay
discharged the mother of Perry White,
who was cook. She was accused of
stealing silver plate, She was a person
of violent temner, and threatened that
Mr, Clay should suffer for it. Shortly
afterwards Perry White wrote a letter
to a girl in Mr, Clay's employ, wjtli
whom he was in love, iu which he
threatened Mr. Clay's life. From tljftt
time Mr. Clay carried a pistol with him
when he went about the farm, not
knowing when or where the attack
would be made, and being well aware of
the desperate character of the negro.
He saw nothing of him until Sunday
last, when Mr. Clay started in company
with a little colored boy for the colored
church in the neighborhood for the pur
pose pf hiring another cook. When
near his barn the little boy called Mr.
Clay's attention to White. He was dis
mounted and partially hidden behind
his horse. Believing this was an at
tempt to assassinate him, Clay alighted
from his mule, and drawing his pistol
commenced firing. He put two bullets
into White's body, either of which
would have produced death. He then
went to Richmond and surrendered to
H. W. Miller, the County Judge, by
whom he was placed under arrest. Mr.
Clay has public sympathy in his favor,
the negro whom he killed having been
notorious as a thief and desperado.
This affair calls to mind many stir
ring scenes iir which Mr. Clay was a
principal actor. He has always been
noted for personal bravery, amounting
almost to rashness. Many are the stor
ies related by old citizens of the man
ner in which he defied his political ene
mies in times past when an active poli
tician in Kentucky, carrying his life in
his hand. One of these anecdotes,
which sufficiently illustrates the char
acter of the man, is told of him during
a stormy contest for a seat in Congress
between the Hon. (Jarret Davis and
young Robert Wickliffe, "Duke" Wick
lifl'c, as he was called. The latter had
made charges against Davis which that
gentleman denied. Mr. Davis, having
been recalled home by sickness in his
family, left his cause in the hands of
his friend Clay, who at one or two meet
ings met Wickliffe on the stump and
contradicted the charges. Finally, at a
meeting at Russell Cave a few miles
from this city, Mr. Wickliffe having re
iterated the charges, Mr. Clay took oc
casion to handle the "Duke" without
gloves, lie was interrupted by some of
Wicklifl'e's friends, among them one
Jack Ashton, who kept the Broadway
Hotel at that time, and Sam Brown, a
courageous and desperate man, who
had been seeking a difficulty with Clay.
The premeditated disturbance having
been brought about, Brown tired at
Clay. The Ball struck the handle of
his bowie-knife, and as the sting was
severe, Mr. Clay thought he had re
ceived a fatal wound. Holding his
breath, as he told a friend next morning,
in the belief that by so doing he might
live long enough to kill his enemy, he
fell on Brown with his bowie-knife and
literally cut him to pieces, gouging one
eye out of its socket. Mr. Clay was, in
fact, unhurt. Brown lingered for' some
time between life and death, and finally
recovered only to be blown up on a
steamboat at Louisville some years af
terward. There is no doubt of Mr.
Clay's courage and determination, and
if this negro threatened his life, he
might as well also have made his will.
THE COLORADO STONE MAN.
An Astonishing Discovery—Is It a
"Find" or a "Plant!"
From the New York Graphic.
Denver, Colorado Springs and Pueblo
have recently been much excited over
the discovery of a "stone man" by Mr.
W. A. Conant, of Colorado Springs.
Mr. Conant has been for some months
engaged in searching for geological spec
imens, in the shape of petrifactions, in
the hills about twenty-live miles south
west of Pueblo.
A little more than a week ago, while
sitting on a stone eating his lunch, his
attention was attracted by what seemed
to be some little stone points sticking
out of the ground. Upon removing the
earth a little more, he discovered what
he at once decided was a petrified liu
man foot. Of course he continued his
digging, and finally unearthed a human
figure in stone, 7 feet 5 inches in length,
and almost entirely perfect in every
particular. In the excitement of the
discovery he broke the head and a por
tion of the shoulders off while removing
it, but the fracture being a clean one,
without chips or fragments, the broken
portion was easily replaced, and the fig
ure is as complete now as when found.
This new wonder weighs about 600
pounds, is 7 feet 5 inches long the cir
cumference of head is 28 inches, the
measurement from ear to ear in front
14, base of head to forehead 17 inches,
nose 3£ inches long, circumference of
neck 15i inches, breadth of shoulders,
front, 23J inches, from shoulder to tip
of fingers 48 inches, leg 45 inches, foot
13 inches long and 5 inches wide. The
head is turned slightly to the left the
right arm is thrown across the breast,
with the hand lying near the left
shoulder. Tlu right leg is somewhat
drawn up. The right foot is perfect,
the toes of the left are partially gone.
The left arm is extended down the side,
the hand lying on the leg. The fore
head is very low, at once suggesting the
ape the back part of the head is im
mensely developed. The nose is almost
perfect, a small portion of one side only
being gone, The nostril is distended
and the lips protrude. The chin is
large, but does not protrude. The
cheek-bones are high and Indian-like,
The ears are perfect and flat to the
head. The eyes are full. The neck is
small in proportion to the size of the
head and body. The arms, and particu
larly the hands, are long, the latter be
ing 12A inches, while the longest finger
is 7 inches. The feet are broad, spread
ing greatly from the heel to the toes.
The toes are of remarkable length the
great toe is a very phi in thumb. But
the strangest thing of all is a tail, or
stump of a tail, 3 inches long and 1}
inches iu diameter. The whole figure
seemes to be made of a sort of light
brown sandstone. Upon the applica
tion of sulphuric acid effervescence
took place, while the result was a sort
of dark mud containing small grains of
sand. The "stone man," for that is the
name which seems to have fastened to
this object of interest, was on exhibition
for a day in Pueblo and also in Colorado
Springs. What Mr. Conant proposes
to do eventually with his "man is yet
unknown.
