QOT k m-gro named Andersen was
arrostcd near Liuisville, a few days
since, charged with circulating "incen
diary documents" among slaves, and
raising a rumpus generally, in colorod
society. He is thosune Anderson whom
we noticed Inst winter a. being drunk
after he had given pnblic notice lo preach
a sermon.
During the gubernatorial campaign
the New Albany Ledger and other Afri
can papers raised the atorv that the Re
publicans had placed him on the stump
to reply to Willard ou several occasions.
We observe that the same paper, assisted
by the L uisville Democrat, is using the
same lie, when they raunut serva their
party ony purpose at all, unless it is to
preserve themselvrs .he credit of being
unsafe end unreliable paper, and pnrti

stump by Republicans to reply to Wi.

tween hearing Willard speak and Ander
son rout? They both drink whiskey a
like. only Willard a little stoat so.
