In reference to the proposed celebra

Gateite says :
Ample time remains to make all need

bration of the coming Ith ; nnd why may
we not enter upon the work ? Let us, hi
pursuance of this object, hold a meeting
in the Council chamber, next Thursday
evening. Let representatives of the dif

Some jwrsons Tom calls them the
voters of the Second Senatorial District
have been endeavoring to persuade Hon.
Thomas II. Corbett to become a candi
date tor State Senator from the l'aducah
district or Kentucky. He declined, nnd
in consequence of Ids declination ' being
made public, has received by ' petition,
written nnd verbal, strong solicitation to
cousent to make the race. Fortho pur
pose ot Inducing his friend to be satis
fied with his declination, he has pub
llshed a card, In which he says the eon
dtlon or his wife's health ,uud
recent family allllctlons together with
his business engagements, will prevent
win irom maKing the race under nny
clmimisfcineM. "While 1 eontess that It
would anoni mpnvat jilcninv to rejuv

lor the foregoing reasons, I am forced to
decline the honor that I confidently be
lieve you would confer upon me In Au

The Gazette takes to task one of our
clergymen because Jho declared Irom his
pidplt, a short time ago, that the grass
hopper plague and the destructive tires
now prevailing "are simply nn intimation
of God's displeasure, because or the un
belief of the people and their refusal to
acknowledge Christ as the Savior of the
The Gazette Is shocked.
"The .Idea," says our eotcmporary, "Is
inoustrom, tor it Invests the Creator with
attributes that have not been ascribed
to the fiend in licit. Helpless men, wo
men and children, while on their knees
petitioning God to rescue them, were
consumed by the onrushing llames. Men
and women, given to all the vices
of their kind, lied from the scenes
orthelrdebaucheryand were saved.
Ami ora like nature was the curse that
fell upon Kansas. A thousand Innocent
Christian men and women were punldied
because or the uubcller, maybe, of a single
individual, who, ierchancc, escaped un
harmed. Among the most brutal race or
tnen tliat people the earth, no such mon
strous rule obtains. The soul recoils In
horror rrom the contemplation of such
vengeance, and no earthly ruler would
dare tolerate It, much less inilict it. Ku
lightened men would abhor and despise
him, aye, hunt him from the face or the
globe, as God would from the confines or
heaven. On earth or In heaven such a
being would be a terrible monster the
abhorred ot any creature who loves Jus
tlcc and applaud mercy."
This U strongly put, and Is, "In a nut--hell,

The Italian! county-(Ivy.) Xew, nks
this ipiestlon : "Had we not better agi
tate something about the local condition
of our country, nnd what would develop
her resources as tar as her laud is con
cerned, thereby bringing to the notice of
the great public Jour facilities!''' Taking
this question for a text, the A'eics pro
ceeds to discourse as follows :
llallard county, by the Auditor's re
tmrt of 1872. exhibits the fact that lu
that year the number of acres of land re
ported amounted to '21't,'22 acres, the
average value or which was $7.02. Now.
It Is well known that the first settlers ot
the count v incited their farms upon the
ridges or hills as a general rule, and the
vallevs or bottom lands of the county
were seldom disturbed ; and wo Hud the
same true to-tiny, niu ine ianuer oi me
county ever think of the vat iiuau
titles of land lvlm? noon Mnvlleld. West
Fork and Obino creeKS, to say nothing of
me oilier streams ot considerable size
running through her borders. Take
lllg Jlayiield creek alone, nnd the bottom
will average at U. vt a mile and a half lu
width clear through tho county say
twenty miles and you havo a tract of
some thirty thousand acres ot virgin soil
untouched by the hand ot man, stretch
ing directly through tho centre of our
county. It is also a well known fact that
this land produces grass in abundance,
and that hundreds of tons or hay could be
annually gathered therefrom, with a mar
ket for Its sale at your door. The great
and almost universal complaint of our
farmers in the past 1ns been the want of
roughness for their stock, and they
have rcorted to almost every expedi
ent to secure, that end, and yet, wo find
many of our farmer friend- buying feed
nt Cairo, l'adncili and other 'jMiints to
sustain their stock during the crop sea
son. The fact Is that a farmer who is
roniieIlcd to go to a foreign market to
buy the necessities that he needs at home
will never make money, we care
uot what his products are. but
if lie could get it nt home how different
would be the result. Then would it not
be well for some farmer In our county
to open n grass and bay farm lu May
field bottom? Try the experiment and

Article II. is an exposition of the work
of Indian Missions J tliu dltllcultles they
meet with nnd the nrogress thev have
made, both in secular and religious edu
cation. "Looking nt the results achieved
by ludlan missions, it Is evident that they
suggest reasons both ror disappointment
and fur encouragement : but we arc or
opinion that the reasons ror encouratc-
mtnt decidedly preponderate."

correction or prevalent English ideas re
garding the working or the American
Educational System. The subject Is dis
cussed lu all Its bearing'', but the result
or the system Is not considered sufficient
ly successful to warrant its adoption by
other countries.
