THE I0RRIST0WH GAZETTE t TTEDXESDAY, FEB. 5. 1879. HAMPTON A JACKSON ;DK2I OCItAT. Eoiuid Sense from the Conyals cent GoTernor of South Caro lina. From the Louisville Courier-Journal, Jn. 30. u Correfpondent I believe,; Gov ernor, you bmve lwy stood on the v platform of the Jackson Democracy. - Governor Ever, and I atand there to-day. To ray view, we should get back there as fast as possible. The true Jackson policy, as I appreliend It, is to disentangle the business transactions of the country from the legimate financial conduct of Gov ernment affairs. To mix I be two things is unwarranted by the Consti tution and dangerous to the last de gree. Why, does not everybody see, from what has transpired before us, that the moment that the Govern ment becomes involved in Its finan cial operations with those . of the country at large the moneyed men of the country and the great indus trial classes become involved in "an irrepressible conflict" even more ter ribte than that which the great New York politician of a former day pressed upon the attention of the country. The moneyed men in their own interest endeavored to shape and control the financial policy of the country, more or less, as the ne cessities of the case or the greed of the moneyed men might demand. The iuduatria! classes, at first un conscious of control, or patient un der it so long a business prospers with tbcm, as soou as reverses come either arising from the exigencies of the limes or the misshapen policy of the Government, it matters not begin to bowl against the undue con trol of the moneyed classes, who, in turn cry repudiation, until there is a lot confidence, a general lock-up of current notes and consequently uni versal atagnation in business. Thus in attempting to join that together which the Constitution has left apart, wo erect a daugerous propinquity of interests, which must lead in the end to anarchy, actual repudiation, if not bloody revolution. The Jackson Democracy, on the contrary, puts the conduct of the financial airairs of the business and industries or the country at large in its own hands to necessities, and the uncontrollable lawa of trade, more or less variant in different sections, and hence more or less adapted to the wants and in terests of each section. The State Legislatures incorporated the bank ing institutions of the country.which in the enlightenment of the times, will only permit such variations from the common standard of chartered privileges and requirements as the special industries and necessities of the case may demand and justify. So far as I can see, I do not recog nize the necessity just now of the Democratic party taking on its back the responsibility of the financial question. The Republicans as a whole have shaped out the financial problem which they now claim is a success. Let us no, meddle with it, but give it a fair chance of success. If they have brought the country to death's door achieving it, let us at least strive not to make it an situal funeral, whereas it will in such an emergency become our funeral no less than theirs. Let us look to the permanent interest of the whole country and endeavor, whether we win or lose, to deserve well of the whole country. I am convinced we can wis in 1880 if the Democratic party of the Union will have done with men of expediency and learn to toe the mark squarely and fairly on established principles, and I know no better school than the old line Jackson Democracy. Then let us put good, trusty men in nomina tion, fearlessly avow our principles and show ourselves worthy of trus bv beins willing to take defeat at the bands of the people should they disapprove of our policy. A consti tutional rule, self-government and no sectionalism "should be the sum and substanee of our platform, fitted to good, honorable, trusted and tried standard-bearers, it matters not whether they be from the East or the West. It have no patience with an Eastern Democracy and Western Democracy, a Northern Democracy nd Southern Democracy. It is no Democracy at all that is not as wide as th whole country. Until we can flnrl n Fjit.ftrn constitution and a Western constitution of the United States, let us. have done with this sectional Democracy, which means and ought to mean certain defeat. Let us trust the people with the matter, and 1 believe the sober sec ond thought of the people of this great country will ; go back, to the Constitution of our fathers with one consent, and find in its wide bosom what we all want, with the exception of a class of mischief makers real, blessed, heaven-born peace.

A- , The Kentucky Governorship. rraukfort Special to Yesterday's Cincinnati En quirer. The contest in Kentucky for the different State officers to be nomina ted by the Democratic Stale Con vention, which meets in the city of Louisville oo the first day of next May, waxeth very warm. "Under the call of the State Central Com mittee, ach county will be entitled to one delegate for every 100 votes, and one for every fraction over fifty, votes cast for the Tilden and Hen dricks electors at the last Presiden tial election; therefore theie will be 1,052 votes cast in the Convention ; necessary to a choice, 798. Up to the present time Ballard, Bell, Breathitt. Boyd, Caldwell, Crit tenden, Edmunson, Hart, Jefferson, Larue, Lewis. Nicholas, Simpson, Trimble, Union and Webster are the only counties, out pf 116 in the State, which have held their conven tions. The following is the result of the vote so far for Governor : Blackburn has 84 votes and Ua aerwood 62. It is proper here to state that Hon. T. L. Jones received second instruction both in Bell and Trimble counties. . . Underwriters say New York is the worst built city in the world. The modem contrivances of sky lights, light-shafts, elevator-shafts, ventilators, well-holes, hollow col umns, etc., added to Georgia pine fl or , are too much for any fire de partment. The highest salary every paid in Boston was that of J. Wiley Ed monds, who, at the lime of his deal li, was receiving $50,000 per annum as Treasurer of the Pacific Mills. The highest salary paid to a baok Presi dent la Boston at present is $10, 000; the highest to a cashier is $3, 500. The range of salaries of dry goods salesmen is from $5,000 to $500 a year. Robert Mazele died in Cohoes, N. Y., while saying "Thank you." He was very ill, and his family had been without food or fire Tor twenty-four hours. The neighbors brought in some provisions, and his joy was so great that, in trying to express his thanks, he brought on a fatal attack of his malady. A TRUE NEWSPAPER. The Nashville American haa thoroughly estab lished itself as the truest and best of Newspaper publications in the Southern section of the Union. Its news is always the freshest and most enter taining that is to be obtained, and its editorial col umns are just to opponents, and severe to false friends. It never dictates, but warns . While it is fair in discussion, it is positive in its views; and by friend and foe is esteemed true to its convic tions. By its unswerving attachment to the rights and interests of the People, it has become a power in Tennessee which no other journal ever attained; and its influence is only surpassed by its populari ty, not only in Tennessee, but in all the adjoining States. The readers of the GazetTx will also find that the miscellaneous columns of the Amebican em brace all that is interesting and useful, in the va rious fields of human enterprise; and it can be safely commended, as a most excellent and valua ble paper in the Household, the Work-shop, the Store-house, and to all people in every vocation. The Weekly edition is of mammoth proportions, being 12 pages, of 72 columns and from two to three times as Urge as any of the foreign Weeklies that are offered at less price. If you want the best, lend for the American, which prints three edi tions Daily, Semi-Weekly and Weekly, specimen copies of which will be sent on application, free of charge.

Senator Gordon received recently a long argurrentative letter from or.e of the most prominent Demo crats of Georgia, insisting that ihe only salvation for the Democracy in he next campaign is to nominate President Hayes for a second term.

The park policeman made a bed for the dog, and brought him food daily. but he steadfastly refused to be comforted." The Cleveland Heruld of the same date adds this : "The residence of Mr. Nathan Oliver, on South Loai street, caught fire fioru some un known cause while the family were absent. A large Newfoundland dug belonging to Mr. C. E. Header, no ticing the copflagration, hastened to the barn of his master, where he en gaged the attention of the stableman by his excited demeanor.

Mr. Nathan Lyon, of St. Paul, said that Misses Emma Faber and Mary Ilendricka were too proud to stoop to the duties of farmers daughters, and promised them each a $50 silk dresa if they would drire or lead a cow through the streets of the Minnesota metropolis. Accord ingly at high noon Miss Faber took the cow in tow with Miss Hendricks, armed with a broomstick, acting ai rear-guard, and thus they escorted the animal down Third street and earned their silk dresses.
