menf offering $1,000,000 reward'fdr the
assassination of Lincoln he wa3 not
worth a penny to his name. As soon
as the war closed the editors of the Ca
haba Gazette were arrested for having
published the advertisement In their
examination it was found that Gayle
was the author of it. He was arrested
and hurried off to Fortress Monroe,
where he was confined about fifteen
months, and, after he became partially
paralyzed in his lower limb, through
the intercession of- his wife who had
clung to him through all the years of
his degradation with a devotion of which
a loving woman alone is capablej was
released by President Johnson. On
the 5th instant this unfortune creature
died at Selma, adding one more to the
countless host of those born to be lead
ers of men, but who have become the
slaves of base appetite; and gone down
to their graves the squalid and repulsive
prey of intemperance
TirERE is a young fellow in Hendef-
son whose future happiness depends up
on the result of the Brooklyn trial, be

food, if placed in a hermetically Bealed
bottle. Persons who desire to keep
their "bed-bugs over the winter without
feeding them, will do well to remember
this. Tho march of scientific research
is ever onward.
An appropriate sequel to the recent
decision of tbe Appellate Court in the
Jones case, and as something m per
fect consonance with the eternal fitness
of things, would be for the Cth of May
.Convention to adopt a resolution de
claring Hon Wm. Pitt Kellogq, of
Louisiana, to be the first choice of the
Kentucky Democracy for President.
"DuBUQtJE beaux have started the
fashion of carrying their fair charges
across the muddy cross streets." That
has been' the Habit here these hundred
years. When a Hartford couple come
to a muddy crossing, he stoops, hunch
es hisbacklikeacamel, and says; "Now
fly to your roost, dovey." She springs
onto his back, seizes his ears with her
bands, rattles a dainty heel on his ribs,
and he trots off fueling that he wouldn't
exchange that blissful moment for a
week's free range of a sugar;camp.
