He inad vertantly left the loaded pistol on a bureau in ono cf the rooms or the house, and the young la J its, seeing tho weapon apparently in the same condition as they had left it while amus ing themselves, thought that the snapping of caps would give additional enjoyment. Miss Fannie Jones, thercfore,all unconscious, picked up tho pietl, pulled the trigger while the muz zle was in close proximity to her sister's left temple, and fired. The bullet penetrated the brain of tho unfortunato young lady, and shu fill to the floor, dying instantly. HEtTKCKY riElVS. Shelby villc is now lighted by gas.

Mr. btansberry, We are ot tho opinion that our old friend, Judge McMaxasia, knows a little more law than is healthy for the continued existence of the Court of Ap peals. It looks as if he labors under the impression that he has been award ed the contract for performing all.the work which properly falls to the share of Appellate Judges. When tho no tion takes him, he pounces on a decision of the Court of Appeals, like a jay-bird on a June-bug, and reverses it before one can say "Jack Robinson." And he makes no more ado about declaring a constitutional provision nnconstitu tional than Ceockett Bayers docs about pulling the beam at three hun dred pounds. Wo pray Mc., to stay bis rash, innovating hand. The Court of Appeals and the State constitution are relics that have so far bid defiance to the corroding tootli of time, and we would be grieved to see them stricken down by the all-conquering arm of the Cid CAMrEADOi: of the Kentucky ju diciary.

Neither our voice, vote or paper can be used in such warfare. With us, our political faith is a religion, and wo will always endeavor to guard it from impurity as we guard the faith upon which rests tho salvation of our soul from the contamination of infideli ty. That is the reason why we disdain to publish a strict party paper. "We have no idea in advance of the course our party leaders will pursue. Thev ate not to b-trusted. They are all expediency people.

And now they are endeavoring to steal from the Kc publicans their principal gun, and adroitlyjsceking to indoctrinate us with tho virus of inflation. We'll baveinonc of this. We would just as soon call ourself a Republican, and advocate Re publican principles and support Repub lican candidates, as" continue holding on to the name of Democrat and advo cate principles and support candidates that arc Republican in reality, only adopted for the nonce, and it-fed in the hope that the enemy may be decieved and ti victory won before they discover the ruc u-e them as hunters use wooden ducks to decoy the real fowl.

The Administra tion is endeavoring to goad them into armed resistance to its odious tyranny. A dignified submission to the wrongs it is heaping upon them will prove a defeat more sore to tho President and his co-conspirators against the politi cal life of a sovereign State, than would fifty reverses on the foughten field. Their hope is to bring about an armed conflict, and then, under tbo cry of a revival of tho rebellion, enlist the sec tional sympathies of the North now being estranged from them again on their side, and thus perpetuate them selves in power. This is their game. This alone they are striving for. Quiet submission to any and every outrage that may be heaped upon them by the people of Louisiana will defeat it. Let there be no resistance. Madison county is putting on airs hpoiusG it contains the remains of Boonesborough, Boone's Gap, and a rock on which is carved the initials "D. B." About a mile from the town of Sharp-:burg, m Bath county, on tho south bank of Stoner creek, there stood and may r-(;md yet an old beech tree, on which the name of Daniel Boone he spelled it "Boon" was carved nearly a bundled years ago, by the great hunter's own hand, and Bath doe? n't think enough of the relict to mention tho fact. Military dictation is the undisguised attitude of the Administration towards the people of Louisiana, and Generals Shrridan andDR Triobriand haye been fitly selected to carry out the scheme of oppression. Thank God, all such actions as that of the Federal sol diery in the Louisiana House of Rep resentatives are nttib driven to the head in the coffin of I(adicali.-m. OVlt SPIRITUAL XEEDS. What the world wants is not a new rc igion but a return to the old religion the one our Saviour preached anddied for the one that is ultimately to bring salvation to the ieople3 the one that has been abandoned of men almost since the moment of the foul and cruel murder of Cunisron Mount Cnlvarv. We have too many religions now ' such as they are. There is not one in tho whole long catalogue of religious beliefs that will stand the crucial test of the Bible. They are, one and all. more or less of the earth earthy. Their principles, or doctrines, arc the crea tion of men smart and pious men they be but still men. "Preaching Christ and Him crucified" is an inci dental instead of an essential of our modem religions. What does a dying soul care for- sprinkling or immersion or pouring, for infant baptism, for works and faith, for creeds and discip lines or catechisms, for sectarian names and quarrels? He want3 the manna direct from heaven, that will feed and keep life in his soul forever. "We arc not a scoffer at and despiscr of the religions of the world. There is much good in all of them; and also much of evil. They befog and bewil der, by their eternal clashing of doc trines, where they should all be light houses to guide to havens of safety. We never knew of a protracted debate between ministers of opposing sects on the doctrinal difference between their respective churches, thatjlid not work devilish evil in the community, where it occurred. Both sides would claim the victory. The adherents of the several debaters would zealously stand by their champion, estrangements and quarrels and heart-burnings would spring up between friends and neigh bors, and wc have known oven the members of the same family divided among themselve-. The victory in all such contests really belongs to the Devil. Christ blazed the path to hcavon,and he made it narrow. Doctrinaires have endeavored to macadamise tho road, have widened it out, until it actually requires a chart and compass to travel it with safety. There would be no such danger were we to follow implic itly the lights of the Gospel of Jisus.

There is no good reason why a read able newspaper cannot bo gotten up as well in a country village as in a city while there are many good reasons in favor of the project. If the editor is lazy or incompetent, then it will bo impossible for him to get up a paper worthy of support anywhere.

A romantic story reaches us from Germany of a plucky American girl who fooled tho faculty of a famous medi cal school over there, by putting on male attire and attending the lectures. after having been refused admittance when she made application in her wo- A MILITARY HUBBLE. ' An epoch of war always palm off some spurious hero upon tha muse of history, and hi name in consequence finds a place in the chronicles of the nations: while poets and novelist. lacking historical data to work upon, invent nightical exploits to which tliey marry his name not d iring to use that of any one who has carved out an honorable fame with his sword, know ing that detection of their imposture would be curtain the people catch up the song or story, it becomes popular, and after awhile is accepted as veri table history. Thus base fables, in time, pass currcn Ifor genuine fact. These heroes of the' minnesingers and storytellers aro lucky dogs, in that they earn their chaplets so easily. The histori&i of the old world are full of such characters, and, since tho col. lapse of our own civil war, American history can parade a right goodly share. Notorious among these indeed his name may safely be placed at the head of the list is General Phil. H. Sher idan, who has won himself longer and more jingling spurs than any carpet- knight of them all. How? Simply by wining and dinning into the cars of a not overly conscientious newspaper correspondent a fabulous story of an imaginary rido "where danger hung the murky air, and death 'buscaded the way." The story was published as fact in the New York Herald, when it caught the eye of the poet-painter, the late Buchanan Bead, who at once seized pen and pencil, wrota one of the most stirring ballads of the war and painted a picture that made him yet more famous, and Sheridan was the hero of both. And yet that break neck ride through the Shenandoah Valley, "on to "Winchester town," while the legions of Stonewall Jack eon were a-marcli on every road never occurred. Not a bit of it not a bit of it; no more than'our excellent friend, Judge Gregory, mounted a streak of greased lightning yesterday, and rode to Beaver Dam in the twinkling of an eye! Anil yet, were we to publish so preposterous a statement a3 fact, we would not miss the truth a hair's- brcadth more than the poet did when he heroised Phil. Sheridan. We chanced to know something about Sheridan during the late war. We know he was 5cnt out to "Pat"" Thomas bearing instructions from the War Department to the Litter, and those instructions were to put "Little Phil." in command of the cavalry corps attached to the Army of the Cumberland. The grizzly old hero of Rossvillc Gap, whoso iron legions stemmed and turned back the tide of disaster to the Federal arms that set in on Chicamauga's fearful field, obeyed his instructions to the letter, and turned over the cavalry to the "famous ride; The consequence was, that in six weeks' time the cavalry of tTic Cumberland was the most disorderly, dtsciplinclcss mob that ever essayed to wear saber and carbine. Thomas would not stand that sort of thing, and Sheridan wa hustled back to the eastward faster than he came, for those gentlemen from the army of the Potomac were slow travelers when their faces were set to tie southwest. There was deal of hard fighting down there, you see. it Sheridan was ever gumy or an exploit, brilliant, or even moderate ly so, during the war, it lias entirely escaped the eyes of impartial fnsto rians. But he has performed a couple of brilliant deeds since tho war deeds that will wed his name to infamy so long as the world shall stand. He burned up a small-pox hospital that contained a score or more of helpless Indian patients, down with that fright ful scourge. And the other day, at New Orleans, he caused a subordinate to enter the legislative halls of Louis iana, while the House was in session and remove therefrom six members. whose only otienso was they wero Democrats. And he did not stop there, but he called upon the Presi dent to proclaim the white people of that long-suffering and terribly abused State "banditti," and give him free rein to ride them down as he pleases, We hope that the next time the Presi dent gets drunk he will comply with Sheridan's request Then we would have this military bubble pricked to some purpose." If he hopes to plunder the people, he must have forgotten that General Butler was down that way once upon a time, and did pretty clean picking. If ho thirsts for burn ing and slaying, he will be preity apt to find it a dangerous amusement. THE MEXFOIt THE OFFICES. There are hundreds of men iu the Democratic party of Kentucky who can fill any public position with credit to their party and profit to the State and nation. Thev arc large-hearted laree-brained. laree-ideaed men. But O ' O they are also modest and unassumin men. Thev are men who sconi to sen file for nomination with big-bellied loud-swearing, vanity-pnffed, sliallow- brained, long-tongued, blatant, bully ing demagogues. They are men who lave no "claims" upon the party. Your genuine statesmen, your heroes ct the Senate where ideas are as can non lialls and speech a saber keen, are not the ones to button-hole you on every corner and annoy you with their 'claims upon tho party. They are not the men to travel the length and breadth of the State, like bellowing bulls ofBashan, proclaiming that they, and only they, are the chosen vessels to restore the ancient grandeur and glory and honor of the party. These roaring beggars after office, these polit ical lazzaroni, are the very ignorant and conceited incompetents that brought the party into disgrace afore time. They are but croaking frogs, whose mission it is to sit upon the, banks of their native ponds, suck in the air, swell out their sides, and frighten tim id tadpoles with their noise. These impudent incompetents must be put down. "We, the people, the rank and file of the party, must brush them .aside as odious vermin,, and call out our best and truest men our men of brain and ability onrmen ofstamhfa and character our men of trenius o and patriotism our Democratic jewels of purest ray serene, and put them in the crown of American statesmanship, whore their radience may enlighten and their brilliance guide. Too long have we permitted them to rust in obscurity. Too long have wecov.ecd them over with the dust of impudent political ad venturers, fellows who resemble states men about as much as the stripes of a rag-carpet resemble a rainbow.

Glance at the two sap root of General Sheridan's genealogical tree, find von will find inscribed thereon tbe names of Anania3 and Saphira.

One of those sweet romantic experiences which we love to record as evidence that this world ia not all a fleeting show for man's illusion given, that love has lodg ment here below, and there's truth this side of heaven, now comes to us from Nor thern Georgia. It appears that a gentle man of Atlanta wandered out into the country to escape che noise and bustle of tbe busy town, and commune with nature where brooks babble and fields arc a-green at the proper season. Among the birds whose gay plumage delights the eye and happy sotig3 enchant the ear, he espied and at once fixed his affections upon a young pig a tender, milk-white, beautiful piggy. A few words of business import with the owner of tbe porcine darling, and the city gentleman became the possessor of the object of bis swift-born admiration. The pretty pig was carefully basketed, to the immense disgust and indignation of its fond mamma, and thus transported from sylvan eccnes and pastoral disport gns to the glare and glitter, the fashion and folly, of the crowded city. Next morning, ere Aurora's roy warning had bade pale Luna to make room for the god of day, the crimson banners of whose marching glowed redly on the gray eastern horizon, the gentleman, who is an early riser for a denizen of the town, was attract ed to his yard-gate by a commotion tbers ancnt. Imagine hi3 astonishment on dis covering the motherof his newly-acquired treasure endeavoring to mate her way in to the premises that were the prison grounds of the darling of which she had been despoiled on the preceding afternoon Her instinct, quickened by mother-love, had prompted her to swift and determined pursuit. It is such sweet and poet ical episodes as this, frequently occurring in the aromatic and. sunny southland, that more firmly fixes in our mind the conviction that this glorious "land of the free heart's only home," where truth and Sheridan together roam, is no longer iu danger.
