GROVER CXEYEUIND, Of New York. For Vice-President, ALLEN G. TIIURMAN, Of Ohio. For Congre, james b. Mccreary, Of Madiion. In another column will be found tho correspondence between several prohibitionists nnd R. C. Wnrron, Ksq., relative to a joint debate between him and Mr. Ballou. Mr. Warren very properly declines to discuss the question with Mr. Ballou, or any one else, as neither he nor tho democratic party is making war on the prohibitionists. Our fight is entirely against the old enemy that is to say the republican devil, and under no circumstances should our speakers or writers be drawn from the paramount issue of the campaign tariff reduction. Besides too, many good democrat are in sympathy with the effort to cireuuibcrihc tiie evils of tho whisky truffle and .when the question is shorn of politics, they usually array themselves on the side of temperance, as in that strongest of democratic strongholds, Sweet Owen county, which went dry last week by :32 majority. Mr. Warren's letter is sensible, well-timed and pointed, and we commend its perusal to prohibitionists and democrats alike. The question of prohibition may cut some figure in localities during the coming campaign, but the national isMio is whether, as the republicans propose, we shall have higher clothing and the other necessaries of life, with free whisky, or as the democrats promise, cheaper necessities with tho burden of taxation on luxuries and li quor. Maxwell, tho cowardly murderer of liK traveling companion, whose body, after robbing it, he forced into a trunk and left in a St. Louis hotel, while he struck for Now Zealand, met the fate he should have suffered a month after his capture, in the jail at St. Louis, Friday. It has been more than three years since the crime was committed and every delay and technicality known to tho law has been taken advantage of, tho murderer in the meantime being regarded ah much of u hero as if he had done something worthy of praise. The case was twice taken to the U. S. Supreme Court and finally, after everything else had failed, the English government, of which Maxwell and his victim were subjects, asked a respite, which Gov. Morehoitee very properly refused. The mother and sisters of the condemned also came over and plead with tho governor, but to no effect. The murderer claimed that tho killing of Preller was accidental, ami so maintained to the last. lie refused to say anything on the scaffold and it was with tho utmost exertion that he boro himself up during tho trying ordeal. I.andgraf,who murdered his sweetheart three years ago, was hung on the same scaffold and at the same time with Maxwell, but neither noticed the other. Tho necks of both were broken, and justice, though long-delayed, was at last triumphant. We always thought theie was a good streak in John Bosloy, oven if ho was a republican, nnd since the following from tho Democrat, we know it: "John L. Bosley, editor of the Sun, (Hep.) voted the democratic ticket Monday. The over still continues." Wo extend the good brother the right 057" of fellow ship and will do all in our power to assist him to walk uprightly in the straight and narrow path of pure democracy. It begins to look like the law is executed in Rowan when a Tollivar, brother of the late unlamented Craig, is lined 50 and sentenced to 00 days in jail for selling whisky to a minor. Judgo Cooper can endear himself to the law-abiding people of the Statu by showing tho lawless of that county that every violation of the statute will meet with the prescribed punishment, and promptly. F.nnon Dkniiam says tho Williams, btrg Times has not suspended, only stopped to take a breathing spell and to spit on its hands for a better hold on the enemy this fall. The radsare on the hip down thero and Deiiham ought to succeed in laying them flat on their backs. Puor. J. S. Reiu'eut is witting some excellent articles on tariff reduction for the Mt. Vernon Signal. Tho people need enlightment on this least understood of political questions and every democratic publisher should do all in his power to post them. Tin: Louisville Post is authority for tho statement that tho republicans of this district are trying to induce Wood Dunlap to run for Congress. The utterance, that tho woodcock iimdo when awav he flow seems to bu in order. Am:i lti months' absence in foreigji lands, James 0. Blnine arrived at Now Yorlc Friday and was given a grand ovation by his followers, who regard him as the uncrowned King of America. He is looking in line health and spoke in his usual robust manner, the burden of his speech being a comparison between the advantages of the laboring class in this country over thooof Kurope, because of its protection laws, he claims. Ho will speak at Portland on the loth and promises to "electrify" tho country repeatedly during the campaign. Gov. IUtknkk had minute guns fired every half hour during tho day Saturday, with a general's salute of 1 guns and ordered the ofllce of the adjutant general closed out of re8iect to the memory of General Sheridan. Tho old rebel general 6ccms tothink the waris over and the distinguished gcneralson the federal side are entitled to the honor of the entire country, but the flree aters nnd bloody shirt liaunters will continue to howl about a disloyal South. Tom Xast, the caricaturist, has engaged to serve the X. Y. Graphic during the carapaigu. When in bis palmiest days he had not an equal in tho country and tho Harpers, for whom he worked, paid bim a princely salary. Of late years rivals have laid Jiim in tho shade and his employers, who always secure the best talent, long ago placed him on the shelf. F. M. Giu:ns is enjoying tho delights of the seashore, but his assistant, Mr. Clarence E. Woods, is getting out the Richmond Register in fine shape. Woods is not only a good writer but a mighty clever fellow, whom we like, even if he is inclined to make fun of an old man. Tin: report that he would be a candidate in the in the interest of hemp and other protected interests, is denied by W. C. Owens. Mr. Owens is not that kind of a cat. He claims to be as good a democrat as Col. Breckiniidge or any other colonel. Boi'tinoK peoc seem to be destined to have to forego the pleasure of the beverage who-e name has made the county famous id! over the world. I'.uis is tho only one of its eight precincts in which local option does not prevail. Ci!.ikmN Bmixcm takes a rosy view of the political horoscope. I le sirs there is nothing doubtful about ew lork, Xew Jersoy and Connecticut, that they are as sure for Cleveland, Thurman and Reform as Kentucky. NEWS CONDENSED.

Yellow fever has broken out in Jacksonville, Fla., and Charleston lias quarantined ngainst it. Other cities will probably follow the example. It is said that Isaac II.

It has been determined that an American shipbuilder constructed tho Mrst sea-going steamer that ever crossed tho Atlantic, tho Iloyal William. Almost every American craft which goes to sea now carries oil to smooth the troubled waters, and thero is hardly a week in which it docs not tavo some vessel from founder-lug. Tiibv have been trying to eco how quick thev could stop an ocean steamer going at full sliced, aud it can't bo done under a mile, unless she happens to strike an iceberg or a rock In tho way.
