FRIDAY" MOIIMMi, MAY 7. IS7.1. Grant and the Third Term. The otlitor of t lie Patron continues io allow the "third term mania" to disturb his eiuilil)rium, and for two weeks in succc. ;ion has called upon us to know if wo would support Grant if nominated again . We answer affir matively. V" will support the nom inee of the next National JJepublican Convention for President, he he (.'en. Grant, or any other suitable member of the party. This Convention, in our judgment, will name the next President. The Pepublican party is not tired of President Grant : the peo ple arc not tired of him. There is nothing in our laws, or the spirit of our institutions, that forbid him from holding the office a third, a fourth, or more times, if the choice of the people falls on him. Xo precedent of the past condemns it ; the wishes and de sires of our forefathers in regard to "Washington, similarly situated, seem to approve. Their united voice. the united voieG of the whole people in the earliest and purest days of the Pepublie , called upon him to accept the office a third time. They would not have done this had they believed there was danger of turning the gov ernment to a Military Despotism: yet his main hold on their all'ectioi:s and confidence, like that of Gen. Grant, lay in his military renown. Politics ran high in those days, as at present, and the civil qualifications of AVash ingtou were belittled and ridiculed. Put the people knew their man, and nothing but the private inclination, the nersonal longing for retirement after many years of public life kept him from occupying the Presidential ; chair a third lime. The judgment, the patriotism, the wisdom, of the country, sanctioned and endorsed it. What was sound doctrine in those days i- good yet. The present idea that so generally prevails that " it is dangerous to republican institutions'' for a man to occupy the Presidential Chair more than two terms no mat ter how competent, how pure a pa triot, nor how great may have been his services to his country, is of lat ter day growth, and mainly the clamor of ambitious politicians and place hunters, who long for another division of the offices, and to open up better chances lor them. This much as to the propriety of the third term, whether filled by a Grant, a "Washington, or any other person of like qualities, "We do not regard the Republican party as tied to General Grant, or that its mission is ended unless he stands at its head. It contains within its ranks many oth er good men worthy to fill that exalt ed station, and upon some one of these, we believe, the mantle will fall. The feeling prevails with a large portion of the party that he has been suffic iently rewarded by a grateful country for his great services. This feeling will have its influence on the National Convention, and it maybe sufficiently strong to decide its choice for another man; but if so, with this decision will be mixed no 'distrust of Grant's devotion to republican institutions, or the belief that he is an unsafe person to be longer entrusted with this power. The democratic press and politicians have for several years been making a great ado about the "third term ques tion." It is a question, at this time, of no practical importance, whatever, and is agitated for buncombe. The questiou comes nearer home whom do the Democracy intend as their Presidential standard bearer for the next term? What says the Patron? Do they want another dose of Gree ley, or will they next time test the issue on their own strength, under their own colors? Xever mind about discussing longer the question of ten urehere's your milk! If Grant is nominated for the third term, it will be more attributable to !,. 11... m..!!...!-l!..i.r..-;i'iit:ilive-i whieh meets in December, there will he a Democratic major itv of about sevi-ntv. Nobody doubts that the lloa-e will, through the itirciicy of investigation committee-, verv thoroughly overhaul the hading departments nl'Grant'- Administration, and in sulate a searching imiuirv into the public con duct of Grant himself. To fail to do this would be to shun the iierforinau of a plain duly, and -eriouilv disappoint public, expectation. e take it lor irranted. therefore, that this impor tant work will be done, ami that the knile, -0 to speak, will be thrust into the foul ulcer oH.raiit isin without pity and without tear." Our readers are fully acquainted with the composition of the next House of Representatives. It needs no description at our hands! This is the body of men that are to investi gate Grant's Administration, over haul it, and turn it upside down. If the democracy arc full bent on reviv ing all the old issues, which it was hoped and believed had been settled by the war. they will find the Repub lican party ready to meet them. It necessarily and collaterally brings the services of General Grant into great er and more commanding promi nence, and forces the country once more to pass judgment upon them.

We have not heard of any Demo cratic papers calling on the sovereign State of Missouri to ferret out the murderers of Daniel Askew of Clay county. It was one of the most blood thirsty and cruel murders on record, but tile Times or Dispatch have not gone in agony over it. The fact is, circumstances point to those noble (?) generous (?) James brothers as the murderers. When we consider that if had not been for a handful of Re publican votes, the James boys would have been pardoned, and then honor ed and feted, we blush for our Legis lature, and for the great State of Mis souri.

Reed was whipping his wife, and Fra.er went to arrest him, and as he entered the door, lieed shot him twice once in the mouth and once through the heart killing him instantly. Reed then at tempted to escape, but was captured about hall'a mile from his home and hurried to the jail to keep him out of the hands of a'mob. The excitement is intense, and there is every probability of an attempt to lynch him to-night. AN EXCITED CROWD KILL A NEGUO MFRDERER. Nashville, April :0. The excite ment over the killing of police officer Frazcr bv J. A. Reed, colored, to-day grew more and more intense during the alternoon, and culminated at halt-past eight to-night in a large and excited crowd gathering in front of the jail and demanding the keys from jailer Ileri son, who refused to give them up. They immediately attacked the building and forced an entrauee.and at 10:30 o'clock, after forcing open four heavy iron doors, succeeded in reaching the cell in which the negro was confined, the door of which was soon beaten open. Reed was seized and the rope fastened around his neck, and he was hurried to the sus pension bridge, from which he was thrown, with the intention of hanging him, but the rope breaking, he Jell to the rocks beneath, a distance of ninety feet, and lrom thence into the river. He was shot once on the way to aud again at the bridge. The body has not yet been recovered. The alarm was given at the first indication of a riot and a large police force sent to the jail but they were soon overpowered and driv en 'away by the rioters. The jailor and his assistants did all in their power to resist the attack and protect their pris oner. KENTUCKY. VICE-PRESIDENT Wl I.SOX A IIORRIW.E ACCIDENT.

In Estell county, last Wednesday, the wife of Albert Long went to a neigh bor's to borrow meal tor breakfast, and while she was gone the house took fire and was burned to the ground, consum ing two little boys, one live and the other three years old.

The Byans Murder The Murder er's False Confession Shocking Sequel to the Tragedy. Prom St. doe Gazette, 20th. The examination of the parties impli cated in the murder of Rev. John Evans, near Trenton, in Grundy county, on the night of the 2'2d of March, an account ol which was published in the Gazette, was concluded in Trenton last Tuesday. It will be remembered that a man named Savers was arrested soon after ; that he confessed the crime and turned State's evidence ; caused the arrest of Wm. Cornwall, a well-to-do and most respectable fanner, and one Pinkey liil lops. Cornwall had no diflieulty in proving an alibi by respectable witness es, and was acquitted, and Rillops, we are informed, was held for the action of the grand jury. And now comes what we conceive to be one of the worst and most diabolical features of the case, if anything could be Avor.sc than the robbery, murder and burning of a defenceless old man under his oavu roof lor a few hundred dollars, and proves Sayers to be one of the most heartless wretches the criminal annals of any country has ever contained. Af ter his arrest he made Avhat purported to be a confession, and caused the ar rest of Cornwall. The people of that section being blinded by the terrible event Avere almo.-t Avrought up to the point of lynching all three of the parties. Cornwall's family Avere almost distract ed by the event, "and the whole com munity Avas shocked to find that a man heretofore deemed one of the most hon orable aud upright in the community, was guilty of committing a crime of the most 'damnable character knoAvn to the law. So great Avas the feeling among Cornwall's friends, that his brother, un der the excitement of the time andmad- i dened by the disgrace, committed sui cide and died in the belief ot his brotn er's guilt. And noAv that the evidence has been heard, it is lound that Sayers is not on ly a double murderer, but that he con cocted the entire story, so lar as con cerned ContAvall, at least, with the full intent of running down and destroying an honorable man ; that he has destroy ed his reputation and caused his name to be heralded over the land as a cold blooded murderer and assassin. The least that the press can do that gave to the public the tale of Cornwall's supposed crime is to publish his vindi cation, and the best thing that could happen to the Avorld just about this time of the year Avould be to go into execu tive session and shake Sayers oil' the roll. The Massachusetts legislature has expunged the resolutions of banish ment againt Roger Williams that were passed in the old puritanic, times. The New Twenty Cent Piece.
