H'olnro'lny, .Tfitrch o. The Texas Senate lias paused a bill repealing all laws ri-riuiriug hotels to pro cure license. It is rumored that Plymouth church has subscribed 5125,000 to defray the ex tienses of Beechers defense, and that Bowen protested againrt the appropria' tion. Owlng'to the passage of the civil-rights bill, the proprietors of the two principal hotels at Chattanooga have surrendered their licenses, and will condiictlheir estab lishments as orivate boarding-houses. The Hon. John Young Brown, of Ken tnckv. has won tbe admiration oteverv lady and gentleman in the South for his castiiration of BeaU Butler. Already fourteeo babies in Forsyth coanty,;N. C, . - i ;. navr-ueen named tor mm. Last week we noticed the presence ofmyr iads of rrassboDners in the fields around Staunton. Va. Strange to say that the fearfully cold weatherdid not affect tbem in the least, and while the thermometer was ten decrees below zero they were hopping about as lively as ever. On Monday last the fields were still full of them. . A man by the name of Hugo Byer, a painter by'trade, committed suicide at Xacogdochee, Texas, in the following manner: He took on February 19, 2 ounces of laudanum; February 20, 2 oun ces of laudanum and 3 ounces chloro form'1, February 21, 2 ounces chloroform and i ounce morphine, February 25,4 ounces chloroform; February 23,2 ounces chloroform and 1 Ounce chloral, and died on (he 25th instant at Hp. k. This wiHsurprise the oldest medical men.of the age. John' Jordan, an industrious, hard working, well-behaved colored man, died in Somerville. Tenn Monday night . From what we can learn he was the -victim of a supposed conjuration. Fully believing he had been conjured, and with a -view of relievihe' himself there from, he had ewallowed dose alter dose of the most powerful emetics, until his sys- tem'was 'completely exhausted, and he paid the penalty of his superstitious be- lierwiln his life. Early yesterday morning, as a "woman wenllnto tbe saloon or Julius Wilcke, in Chicago, Ills., to get some beer, she discovered the dead body of the proprie tor. There was a deep gash in his skull above the rieht eve from which the brains were oozing, and another cut from the mouth to the chin. A hatchet was lying on the floor, and the pockets or the vie tira'were turned out and rifled. No trace of the 'murderer has been discovered, but his Object was doubtless money, since it was known that Wilck6 expected to re ceive $1,500 On Satbrdav evening. Mr. Geo, Bright, an old resident of Fannin county,, Texas, was killed at his hotneriear Hotfev Grove, on the 24th, under 'the following circiirnstances: It eeemrthat Mr. B. had punished one of his children on the day previous, and, on the morning of the shooting affair, had oraerea mis one 10 gei up ana mane fire. Tbe boy complained of feeling un weir, and, on his refusal to get up, his fattier attempted to whip him, but his mofh'er interposed. The quarrel between the husband and wife was bitter, and Mrs. B. testifies that he was about to strike her. when James Bright, a boy of about twenty, jerked down a gun that was hanging on the wail, and sbot him dead. The voun man then made hie escape. The neighbors state that there had been considerable trouble between Air. ana Airs. B lor some time previous, and a difficul ty Between the young man and his lather only a raw aays neiore. xne eviaence ad duced at 'the coroner's inquest leaves no doubt on the mind of the jury but that the murder was premeditated. Every possible effort has been made to secure: the murderer, but as yet without success. On Friday last a terrible 'tragedy was' enacted in DeSoto parish, La., a few miles south of Sonne Ridge. It seems that an old man named Samuel San ford 77 years old. 'his son John SanforJ, aged SO years, and aon-in-law of the old man named Ben Pittman, while, on their way from Shelby county. Texas. toShreveport, stopped on "the ftide of the road to eat dinner. As the old man was sitting against a tree, nis son stepped up 10 mm drew bis six-shooter and remarking: have got you where I have wanted you for four years," fired two shots' into his father's side or breast. The bitter sprang up, mounted bis horse ana gaiiopea on, when the .son pursued him, and, over taking him. presented his pistol at his head. The old man begged him not to shoot again, flaying "you nave Killed me, and I'wish to say something before I die, or something to thaMitfect, The son then rode off and. made, his escape into .Texas. A parly from Spring Ilidge, shortly after the horrible tragedy, went in pursuit of . i ' " j i . "?! j .i.t.ri me uiuruerer, uui laueu utuvi;riacuMi At .last accounts Mr. Sanford was alive, but'not expected to recover From what we could learn, the act was prompted by a desire on the part of the eon to get the property of tbe father. Last Monday, near Huntsville, Tenn just over the Madison line, in Haywood county, a negro woman left"home for a few minutes, leaving two email children in charge of a negro girl about twelve years old. When she returned half an hour later, she found her children, whom eh e bad left hale and hearty, both lying together dead. They looked perfectly natural, with.no egn of violence on lliem The alarm was given to the neighbors by he half-distracted mother, suspicion rest ed on the girl. She ivas charged with poisoning tbem, and at, first she denied it, but, when threatened, she went to a log close, by and took from tinder it a Lot t eol fitrrclinine. She had been hired si a nurse by the father of the children, and was opposed to living with the family, is Hupposed she poisoned the children get rid of nursing s.nd caring for them. She says a negro man eare her the pois oiu and told her to nut (t id the barrel of meal, and she would then get to go back home. Kevers! negroes have been arrest ed, but it is not positively known whether they have the guilty one or not. Whoev er furnished the poison evidently expected to Kin the whole latiuly. Tfcurwlay.

In writing as we do, we are actuated by the purest of .motives, and moved by our exceed j ing devotion to the principles of, and jealous consideration-for4heiair fame our party. Fpr the past twenty years, we have advocated with pen and oice the adoption of those principles bv the American people. "We have in that time seen Kentucky, our belov ed native State, redeemed Irom captiv ity, and its, statue, set in the Valhalla of Democracy. "We Live sufficient van- ty to believe that we contributed, in some small degree, to that desirable re sult. It is true enough, that once or twice, when extraneous issues were in jected into the party, we were compelled to differ with a portion of our political brethren; but these differences passed away with the occasions that produced them, (and they were never antago nisms of principle), and left us all in full accord as before their intrusion. "With the late war its causes or its merits we of to-day have nothing to do. That is all dead and buried, and ought to be forgotten, matter. The sword was appealed to, and by its decis ion we must abide. No good can be accomplished by raking through the ashes of the late fratricidal strife, and dragging into view the charred skeleton of a quarrel that is dead. We fully and freely accord to those who occupied opposing sides credit for honesty in sen timent and patriotism in action. "We mourn those who offered up their lives on either side as our common dead, as brothers who laid the extreme offering of devotion to what they deemed the sacred cause of liberty on the altar of their country. Their going forth to battle and sudden death we accept as the strongest evidence of their faith in the justice of their respective causes. Standing by their graves, we ask not the color of the uniforms they wore, nor demand to know which flag they hal lowed by their blood. "We only know that they sleep in a common earth, that an impartial sky bends over them all, and that the green grass and the beau tiful flowers avoid not the graves of the pne, nor concentrate their wealth of love liness and adornment upon those of the other. We only know, and only care to.know, that, enemies no longer, they repose, Under the violets the blue, Under the HUies the gray: Under the lillies the blue, -Under the violets the gray. D'iscarding, then, the late war as a legitimate subject of discussion, and looking only to the perils that environ and threaten our liberties perils great er and more imminent even than when we stood arrayed against each other in hostile lines of battle it becomes us to employ all of our judgment, to summon all of our wisdom, to survey the critical situation with the coolest and keenest scrutiny we can command; and then thrusting to one side all merely partisan and personal considerations, act as. one man, fully realizing the gravity of thd occasion and the extraordinary respon sibility that rests upon each one indi vidually, and so act that our State and our -whole country shall be benefitted and preserved by our action. We cannot afford to create and foster dissensions in our ranks. There lives no man. we care not whom he may be, that has that claim upon us as a party which demands that we should sacrifice the harmony, perhaps the very exist ence of the party, to advance his per sonal interests. -When any candidate, we care not who he is, stoops to the lowest and vilest arts of the demagogue to accomplish his own selfish ends, pro ducing ruptures at county conventions and .creating estrangements between Democrats, spreadingschism and heart burnings wherever he goes, he should be looked upon as the publio enemy of the party and treated accordingly. The Democratic party of .Kentucky to-day presents, the anomalous spectacle ofa besieged Troy, against which dema- goguery is waging a fierce and unrelent' inc Punic war. The Greek horse of selfishness has been introduced into our citadel the county convention hav ing coucealed in its hollow stomach armed and bitter dissensions.' The fruits of this introduction of disguised and con cealed enemies into our county convo cations, are already sadly and disgrace fully apparent in the results of the county conventions held in Owen, Bour bon, Hart and Daviess. The. evil is now in its bud, and can be easily met and eradicated. If. left to grow and gather volume and strength, it can have but one and that'a disastrous termina tion. The iarmony, the mobility of the party once destroyed, its usefulness will have passed away. In our union of sentiment and endeavor alone con sists our strength. By united action only can we continue to conquer. In the counties named above we were presented with theiitherto unheard-of spectacle of life-long. Democrats, men of the first standingand position in their communities and in the party, being denied the right of expressing their sen timents m public meetings of & free people! Great Gon! and has it come to this, ihatFreedomofSpeechisstrick en, down, stabbed, murdered, in Dem ocratic conventions in the Democratic Sfate of Kentucky? One of the prin cipal grievances that led our fathers to throw off the yoke of British rule, was their deprivation of, the free dom of speech by the parliament of England. And shall we, their descend ants, submit to be robbed, through the arts and trickery of ambitious dema gogues, of this' dearest and most valued right of American Democrats? Torbid it Heaven! Democrats! Kentuckians! assert your manhood! Protect and pre serve your party and your State from becoming the prey of such men!

What oth er treatment does the man deserve, who, while a candidate for the most exalted position in our gift, stoopsto organize and lead a bpltinsr faction because a regular-county convention declines" to instruct for him?
