A I'OOK inebriated young man, who claims to be a fourth cousin of Sen. Meade, and is probably that far removed from him, made a display of his inebrie ty, and his want of that useful garment, a shirt, on our streets to-day. His con dition, whether sober or not, in respect to clothing, was such as to render him a lit object of attention by the police. Ve believe bo received police attnt ion from oflleer Downing, but ei-oapod it so far as we know to-day. Oi'K venerable contemporary asserted very properly in his last issue, that he " could stand the charge of stealing 'editorials bodily,' " but objects to be ing accused of appropriating pur local articles. Nevertheless the fact remains that the Mess, has appropriated local ar ticles from our paper, day after day, dressing them up more or less in its own language to cover Ihc " respectable" appropriation, or " larceny." We do not object to this, tin vi said before. Nor do its readers. They want the best they can get, of course, through the me dium employed. They welcome the "reaction," and hope for the "resurrec tion." Edwin V. Ki:mp, son of Enoch N. Kemp of this village, was stabbed at Galveston, Texas, on the I2.'ld ult., and died from the effects of the wound on the 2Gth. His brother, John N., who communicates the sad intelligence to his parents says after receiving the wound he had the best medical aid in town and was kindly cared for, but to no purpose. John wa with his brother at the time he wuh Htabbed and ciune very near being killed himself, These aro all the particulars that have thus far been received of the affair. Young Kemp leaves a young widow to mourn his death, he having married a few months ago. Iticiii'oiii).
