Every attempt on the part of the Federal Government . , i . . t in exercise a power udl uvicgaicu 10 11 in me Constitution, or to exercise a delegated power in any manner not therein prescribed, is an act of usurpation, demanding the instant and un qualified condemnation of a people jcalons of their liberties. And ire hold that any uncon stitutional interference by the General Govern ment with tbe local affairs of any State to any extent or under any pretense whatever should bo at once condemned by all classes of every section of tbe Union, as all such acts tend to the destruction of our Federal system and tbe consolidation of all power in a centralized des potism It is said, and pretty generally be lieved, that women dress to worry them telves and makcotlicr women unhappy. Some one defines a real poet as "a finger whose verses haunt your twi lights." This is undeniably a good defi nition. It includes the musquito and ,the Lcitchficld Herald' pet warbler. TnnrtL arc ten thousand store clerks in Kentucky whose salaries average five dollars a week, but they couldn't part their hair in the center and whisper in church if they were working on farms or at trades for two or three times the monc3'. An anecdote for thc"Lcitchfield Her- aliFe poet: "Sir, you arc nogentleman,' raid an irate person to Dr. Johnson, "Arc you one?" asked the gruff old phi losopher. "Yes, sir, I am," was the response.

A man up at Hartford awoke the other night under the impression that the spir its were tickling htm, but after a little pa ttent investigation discovered a pioneer bed-bug. Only this and nothing more. Callioon Progress. There is something more, however. It occurred here; the man came from Callioon; he brought the vermin iu his hair; and wc don't will 'cm bedbuj up here, either. The Courier-Journal of Suuday gives the details of the assassination of the no torious Willis Itcssio.L at Monterey, Owen county, last Thursday night. He was fitting in a room at his board ing houe, about nine o'clock, reading, with the door 'varltally open. The a sassins stood off alwut twentv feet from the door, where they had a good view of their victim, and fired upon him with a shot-gun, the charge, consisting of Mug, taking effect on his head, shoul der and upper portion of the IkxIv, pro ducing wuunds from which he died between eight and nine o'clock next vioniiug. The murderers, Gniaaf B.vitn and Gixxtci: Mni-'FKirr, as soon io- they fired the dastardly shot, mount til their horses and made goxl their escape. This murder is but another bloody epiVode of the feud between the Walkers and Smoots. Owen county would have been the winner in reputa tion, and the State saved a round Mini of money, if our disinterested advice of three years ago had been followed, viz.: To turn all parties concerned into a field with orders to shoot each other to ileath. After the extermination of one ride, if there were any survivors on the other fide then hang them to the ncar- THE LEGISLATIVE CANVASS. At the Sulphur Springs" pie-nic last Saturday, Sam. E. Him., esq., of our town, announced himself .i candidate to represent Ohio county in the next General Assembly. This throws the canvass into a muddle from which the County Democratic Committee mav experience some difficulty iu extricating the party, tlie election being so close nt hand that it will be impossible to call a convention, nominate Mr. Hill in form, and send him out as the chosen standard-bearer of the party to canvass the county. Wc have had two candidates in the field for several months one formally nominated by the County Council of his party, and the other claiming to be an Independent, what ever that is. Of course no one doubted that the Radicals would place a cham pion in the field, and now wc have him in the person of Dr. Meadoh. The regularly nominated candidate of the Patrons of Husbandry, prior to his ad hesion to the new party, was a Demo crat, and, wc understand, claims still to belong to the Democratic organization. This claim, coupled with the fact that he is a gentleman of irreproachable character, will secure him the support of many Democrats who would other wise stand staunchly by a nominee. As the case now stands, Mr. Hill has no stronger claim upon the suffrages of those Democrats who do not recognize the Patrons as a political organization than Mr. Hocker, from the simple fact that, in the absence of a nomination by a regularly constituted convention of the party, one Democrat is as free to offer for office as another. The Coun ty Committee, whose duty it is to guard the interests of the party, and prevent such a state of affairs as at present exist, has neglected that duty, and it doesn't require much of a prophet to foretell the result. Howe we do not count in the race, as he has no following; Hill and Hocker will divide the Demo cratic vote; the Radicals will vote sol idly for Meadoh, and that nag will come out under the winning-string a length or two ahead of the foremost of his competitors. And the Democracy of Ohio county will have their apathet ic Executive Committee to thank for being represented in the next Legisla ture by a Radical. P. S. Since the above was iu type the candidates met (last Monday) at the courthouse to discuss the issues be fore the people. 'Squire Itowi: with drew from the track, which leaves Messrs. Hill and Hocker to divide the Democratic vote, and thus assure an easy victory to Dr. Meadoh, who, notwithstanding the declaration of leading Radicals to the contrary, is a candidate, and whose name will be put on the poll-books sis surely as elec' tion day rolls around. They have con cocted a neat scheme to distract and di vide the Democracy that they may reap victorv from our dissensions. Let us not suffer ourselves to be hoodwinked bv them. "Wc confess that we would have preferred a fair and square stand-up fight against all opposition. This could only be done with an" hope for success under the lead of a regularly nomina ted candidate. It is too late for that now. IJierc is but one wav left us to frustrate the success of the cunningl devised coup dc guerre of the enemy, and that is if both HocKEit and Hill continue oji the track for the Dcmoc nicy, rcgardle-s of personal considera tions, to concentrate their entire vote upon that one of these two gentlemen who presents the greatest show of strength before the ieople. The tri umph of the party and its principles should be the first and vital considera tion with us all.

THE PA D VCAII HERA LD REDIV-IVUS-A BACKWARD GLANCE We are in regular receipt of the Pa" ducah Daily Herald, which has been re vived by Col. John C. Noble, and takes the place of the defunct Kentucl: ian. Of course the Herald will become a power in. the party, for Col. N. is one of the foremost political writer in the Suite. He hxs ever been an un swerving Democrat, and proved liiin self in many a hard-fought and desper ate contest a fearless, sagacious and trustworthy leader. Wc gladly wel come him back to active service, and hope in the years to come to march by his side to many a glorious victory. As wc hastily glance back to a quar ter of a century ago, when we first donned the editorial harness, of all who then constituted "the fourth estate" in Kentucky, John C. Xoble's battle- scarred figure is the only one wc can recognize of the "Old Guard" in the ranks of to-day. Let's sec: Collins, of the Maysvillo iiwc, is dead. . Pike, of the Maysville Flag, is dead. Lind sey, of the Mt. Sterling ttliig, is dead. Wickliffe, of the Lexington Observer & Remrter, is dead. Taylor, of the Lexington Stalctman, went to St. Louis. French, of the Georgetown Herald, is dead. Lyle and Walker, of the Paris Citizen, arc both dead. Atkinson, of the Cvnthiana Acics, is dead. Camp bell, of the Covington Journal, is dead Finnell, of the Covington Regkler, is dead. Zimmerman, of the Danville Tribune, is out of the business. Gib BONf, of the HarrodsbiirgU2ot((fr.Z) is dead. Tanner, of the Frankfort Yeoman, is dead. Morehead, of the Frankfort Commomceatlh, is dead, and Col. Hodges is out of the business. Middleton, of the Shelbyville JYcirs, is out of the business. Prentice, Penn, and Harney, of the Louisville press, are all dead. IIuTcnnN, of the Henderson Reporter, is dead. Rue A, of the Russellville Herald, is out of the business. And so on down the entire line. And of all the old familiar faces of twenty-five years ago, that of Col Noble is the only one that greets our vision. And of all the political leaders of that day, whoso plumes we all fol lowed or opposed in the fight, but one survives, the venerable Archie Dixon, ot Henderson. Alack-a-day! time is indeed a whirligig, and right glad are wc that, witli all its changes, the Pa- ducah Herald and its gallant editor, un scathed and undaunted, arc still con spicuous iu the vanguard of the army of constitutional liberty. A Callioon man, who doesn't belong to the temperance society, found twenty-four foot snake coiled around his wife's neck the other night, as he was about to get into bed. Springing back he seized a chair and tried to knock the serpent off. For the space of half an hour the neighbors thought they were manufacturing earthquakes in that house. He rs confined to his bed, and regales sympathizing visitors with the particulars of an imaginary wrestle with a mule's heels, while his wife dances about the house with a strip of court-plaster on her chin, a springy step, sparkling eyes, and every once in a while a motion of her elbows as though she were about to flop her wings and crow the cock-a-doodlc-doo of victory. For the Herald. not si: ci.eani.x;. BV O.U1T8. Out with the chairs! Out with the beds, matrasses, steads and all! Take down the pictures from the walls! Up with the carpets! Blessed arc the women who have no husbands hanging around in the way, grumbling at the dust and discomfort of house-cleaning time. If men just had to clean houses once wouldn't it learn them to be patient, and make them lenient to delicate, nervous women, who are irritable from over-work and Fcold from too heavy a tax on nerve and brain? I guess it would! If they only had to clean out, dust, mop and put to rights the presses, closets and ward robes for an ordinary family, do you think they could get everything lack iu place again and keep in good humor all the time? These house-cleanings! What a world of work and weariness thcivords suggest! Dust, dust everywhere, pails and mops and scrubbing brushes! So many things to be aired! Furs, blankets and woolens to be packed away! Trunks, chests and drawers. herein sacred treasures arc locked year after year, must be opened. Keepsakes, garments that arc needed no more, relics that take us back to the past. Here is a dress that she used to wear. We kiss it feilctitly as we lay it out. Kiss it with a mibt of tears dimming our eyes! Uere arc the cloves her dear hands, ncv cr weary in well doing, had shaped! Th slippers her weary feet wore last. Feet that have climbed the beautiful hill "Beyond the Itiver' where the green pastures lie, and the still water llows be side Our Father's house of many man sions. Here is nu auburn curl and a broken ring, .twenty years ago they were put away. Twenty yenra ago "God's pitying angel Looked upon us all, and loving her the mo&t, Tvvkbn tou.nst bomo" . I wonder if they call her Annie up there? And here is a watch, still as the eart which Btopped beating under it be fore 1 was old enough to know the meali ng of the word fatherless. And here is a baby's silken curl! Lit tle Willie .My head droops lower as lay it back and take out the old fa miliar gray-brown suit. Involuntarily I stroke the sleeve. Each touch is a ca ress a tender, lingering caress, with a quick quiver of pain running up the arm to the very hcartl Ah! how sharp tbe pain grows! The tough tightens to a clasp!" "Oh my boy!" Not in words. No, no! A dry rattling in the throat, with a strong effort to swallow something which is choking, and the words which would have been a wail are stilled! But bent lower over the trunk, a face all lrawn with weeoinir is buried in the breast of that poor empty coat, and lips that make no moan press passionate kisses on the gray-brown garment which four years ago covered a heart so tender and true, so noble and pure, that angels were sent to take him up where the pure in heart see God! Ah! mothers, Jsters, you know, you who have been through many such house-cleanings, "There's not a fold howe'er attended, But one dead lamb is there; There's not a fireside, howe'er defended, But has one vacant chair." Shut the trunk. Close the drawer. God knows it all. Wc would not bring them hack. Not now. No, ro. There's no house-cleaning up there. No tears. No heart-ache. Slip out quietly and bathe tbe red eyes. Wash out the tear-stains. Smooth the face. Hasten back and get thiugs to rights, for supper-tiinc is coming, Such is life. Lebanon. Kv., June, 1873. For the Hartford HcrnlJ. LO.Nd AV.it. "Backward,turn backward.Timc in your flight," is a sentiment that often finds a resting place in our hearts. For the long ago, with its shadows and lights mellowed by distance, is fairer and sweeter than things which the present only half reveal. How often wc hear it mur mured: "If it could be as it was long ago, how much happier would I be how dif ferent would be my life! If I could but recall my childhood, and live my life ovci again, I would control my acts and deeds so as to render the remainder of my days happy and peaceful." "We often bear the drunkard speak of the long ago, as be reels from side to side. In time past he was a noble and promis ing youth, with everything in his favor, and with but an effort he could have at tained for himself happiness and honors that arc well worth striving for. But, poor, degraded wretch, he is cared for by none; be is cast aside by every bystander, and the finger of scorn is pointed at him Often do wc sec the once loved and cherished daughter sit and weep over the long ago. How well can she remember when, at the knees of a loving mother, she was taught tbe firet lessons of life; and, as she advanced in years, listened to mother's good and cheering advice, and the praise and honor of a noble father. Now she sits lone and weary, dreaming over the long ago, and of the sad time when the last ties that bound her heart to earth were severed, and when.by the grave of the dearest object to her on earth, she touched the bands that were clasped in death, and pressed a last kiss on that brow which was eo cold and pale. Now she is as it were, on the stormy ocean of time, left to battle with its waves and reefs and shipwrecks alone. Thus we often bear some afflicted one murmur, as he lies upon his bed of pain dreaming over his misspent life aud hi: childhood days which were passed in idle ness. Aud now he only asks for his youth back again, that he may improve his time, and "make his acts most potent for good.' But cau his youth be restored ? The an swer is emphatically, No! The days of the Long Ago arc now ob 6cure. Ihey have passed lrom us. nut how easy in fancy to wander back, and imagine ourselves almost as wc were i the past; and whether our lives have been spent profitably or not, whether we can reflect back upon the long ago with pleas ure or sorrow, Memory, one of the great est gifts that God has bestowed upon man will stand before us with the past stam ped upon its every feature. A. E. W. Canisyville, Kv., June, 1S75. For the Hartford Herald. The Wnmlcriiig Judge. South Cauroli.ton, Kr., July 5. Editor Heralp: In Louisville Central Park, it so happened that we observed man who- assumed the appearance of Hartford Judge. We said a man well he did have some ot the features of a man but be more resembled a brewery, for his beer capacity is unsurpassed by a hogs head. The Judge had a couple of kegs of his favorite "picnic water" emptied iuto his elephantine stomach, and then began to Eensibly realize the beat of the day. Ap proaching some of his more experienced "puss-gut" friends, he asked if beer ever clabbered and "went back on a fellow? They replied that it would ferment and boil over if exposed to excessive heat. Where upon the Judge purchased a hogshead of ice-water and had his unlimited bowels well bathed, and then took lone passage on a street-car for Hambcrgcr's, to get further information in regard to hisstom ach. Having returned from the Park, we felt a curiosity to know the result of th two kegs of beer, and followed the Judge' footsteps to Hambcrger's. There bat th Judce. niakins a btrance noise. I first thought he was braying for Will Hay celebrated jack. This seemed perfectly natural to him. It next seemed that he was imitating that renowned goat. One would have thought him a "Billy" by birth, his mimicry was so perfect. We ftcrwards learned that the Judge only had one of those severe cases of hiccoughs that wc have on certain occasions. We ritly hope the Judge has recovered from the hiccoughs, and especially from that nervous debility which caused him, at Millwood, on Saturday, to overturn the plate from which a South Carrollton Pro fessor was enjoying a delicious dinner. Judge we hope we may meet again on St. John's day, and dine together once more at Millwood. The South Carrollton Professor. I'lCO-U A SUHSfKIHEK.

Corn, wheat and oats look fine. The wheat is nearly all ripe enough to har vest. One or two crops were harvested last week, and, if we don't have too much raiu, everybody in this neighborhood will get done this week. If it continues wet, as it has done for two weeks, it will njure wheat in the shock. Corn is growing very fast, and the weeds equally as fast for it has been too wet to plow for some time, and the weeds have got a very good start of some of our corn. The rain on last Monday night washed the ground considerably, and swept every fence "clear and clean" wherever there was a branch. It was the most rain that was ever known to fall in one night's time in this neighborhood. It was an eight inch rain. Your paper is a welcome visitor every week to me, and I hope when times get better to get up a club. Last Sabbath we had the pleasure of hearing an elegant sermon delivered by E. V.
