Thc picture drawn by the great
est essayist the world ever knew,
of the Scotch Covenanter rushing to
the mountains with a pot of itch
ointment in one hand and a Bible in
the other, is that of the l'uritans
who fled to America to escape re
ligious persecution, and signalized
their arrival by iiangtng ail wno
differed from them. And the un
derlying basis of what is i:ow called
Republicanism is Puritanism it
self. And one of the most ludic
rous features of this canvass is to
eee this very Puritan organization
6etting up InGdel Bob Ingersull as
n. missionary", and rallying about
him witL the wildest enthusiasm
Now, we have nothing to do with
Bob's belief or lack of belief in di
vine things; that is his own look
out; but the inconsistency of these
men, who howl m anguish if a man
of a certain religious lienominalion
be nominated for cilice", and 3et ac
cept the ablest and most auda
cious of infidels since the day of
Tom Paine as a leader and Teacher
is really laughable. It is ouly
equaled by the Christian statesman
or the Christian soldier crying out
'In the name of God, amen, let's
Protests aro coining from the far
West against the removal of the
troops from the frontier settlements.
It is said that the settlers are much
alarmed, and a committee lias been
appointed to lay the facts before the
authorities at Washington, with the
request that the military protec
tion of the frontier be not with
drawn. These poor people certain
ly dou't know how much they are
asking. What do the Radicals care
if all the frontier settlers are
scalped by the Indians? The sol
diers are wauled in the South to
carry the November elections for
the Republicans. When the army
gets through its campaign in the
peaceful South, then it will be time
enough to protect the lives and
property of the border settlers, or
such of them its the bloody Indians
may leave till then.
Wc learn that the man who
wrote that beautiful hymn, "I
Would not Live Alway," which has
been sung these many yenrs, was
presented with a purse of .fiJO.COO
the other day it being his eightieth
birth-day. It might not be alto
gether pleasant to live in this world
always, to be sure, but we dare say
there are very few of us who would
object to being around when if 20,000
purses are undergoing the process
of distribution. And it looks like
the author aforesaid is somewhat
alllieted the same way, and is about
to "go back" upon the sentiment of
his hymn. Eighty years is not
quite always, 'tis true, but then he
elill lives on.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says of
Hon. K. J. Ellis, member of Con
gress from Louisiana, who lately
stopped in Cincinnati on his way to
Washington, that "his speeches
have attracted unusual- attention
He has a voice that is silvery and
musical. He tinges politics with
something of pathos and poetry. A
Bouthern man, ins utterances are
patriotic and loyal. He shames the
vindictivencss of Northern dema
gogues. Halting to aid his friends,
he has made many friends." Mr.
Ellis has relatives and many warm
friends in Tennessee.
The Republicans are making
tiomc very bold threats. They give
us to understand that if wc elect
Tilden, they will inaugurate a re
bellion and try to take possession
of the government by force. But
they can't frighten us into support
ing Hayes. The Democratic party
and the soldiers who shed their
blood for the Union, as well as
those who fought for their rights in
the South, all want peace, and peace
they are determined to have.
By the kindness of Mr. A. T.
Murra3', Treasurer of the llunts

invitation to the fair, which opens

They propose to make it the fair of
Alabama and Tennessee, and will
no doubt succeed.
