Interior Journal Stanford, Ky., - August ti, 1985 him." VV. P. WALTON. SIX PAGES. A lo.no, useful nnd eventful career came to a cloae when on tridny alter-noon Gen. Frank Lane Wolford breathed his last at bia home in Columbia. Born in Adair, the county in which he died, Sept. 2, 1817, he developed at an early age a fondnees for the law and he aoon became a most successful practitioner, especially in criminal cases, in which his services were alwaya In demand, and in which he depended more on bia imagination and upon hia rugged oratory than upon the law and facte. He has surprised many a criminal by having him turned loose when the trembling fellow expected and deserved severe punishment. As upon the rostrum, he was a power upon the hustings. the cause of whiggery, he took an active part in politics and many a democrat went down in disgust before his oratorical eflorts. Among the first to volunteer in the war with Mexico, he did valiant service there and was more than once wounded in battle. home he was elected to the Legislature on the Whig ticket, to whose principles ho waa always loyal. But the Whig party was not born to survive and when it died. Gen. Wolford became a Know Nothing. He waa an intense Union man and at the breaking out of the war he recruited the 1st Kentucky Cavalry and became its colonel. It did noble eervice for the cause and its history during the four years' struggle reads almost like a romance. Its gallant commander was frequently promoted and when he was chosen presidential elector in 1SG4 he had risen to the rank of general. It was during this campaign that he was arrested for alleged treasonable utterances and thrown in prison at Washington, from which he was finally released, after he had written a letter to President Lincoln, which as a plea for the right of free speech has hardly an equal. After the war, he was for extending the fullest amnesty to those who were in rebellion against the government and he did more than any other man to bring about peace and order out of strife and chaos. On a platform of general amnesty, be defeated Col. Silas Adams for the Legislature, and while there brought in the Amnesty bill he bad promised to introduce, which restored ex-Confederates to full rights and privi leges. Since then the democratic party has never had a bolder or more earnest advocate. He was a candidate for clerk of the court of appeals in 18S2, but waa by a combination defeated for the nomination. He then ran for Congress and waa eaeily elected. His unique character and original methods were the wonder of his fellow members, none of whom ever dared to tackle him twice in de. bate. Though deluged with letters from bis constituents during his term, asking his aid in various matters, he only answered one and then to say he was there to attend to public matters and not to private affairs. Hundreds of anecdotes illustrative of his peculiarities and greatness of heart are told, and we hope some day to get Col. Thomas P. Hill to give our readers the benefit of eome of bia personal recollections of the wonderful man, of whom be was a great menu ana ardent admirer. Two wounds received in the thickest of the fray in the war between theStates, caused the death of Gen. Wolford. One was in the right hip, the other in the left leg and they never healed, but were a source of continual pain to the old hero, who never murmured or complained. He had a constitution of iron and a nerve of steel or they would have killed him long ago. Said Col. Hill yesterday: "He was the grandest man Kentucky ever produced. It waa he who kept Kentucky in the Union and prevented her citizens from being pillaged in war and expatriated peace. He was absolutely without fear and when convinced that he was rigbti death or other consequences were never considered. The bravest man I ever saw, the most magnanimous and one absolutely above animosities or resentments, Gen. Wolford was without a peer and his name will be forever cherished by Kentuckians and other patriots who admire the manly virtues for which the general waa remarkable. Grand man he was 1 Afraid to meet no man on earth and not afraid but willing and anxious to meet bis God, when the sum mons came Gen. Wolford went to his reward with the plaudits not only of his fellow man, but of Him Who doeth all things well. May the sod rest lightly Editor Da ins has disposed of hia interest in the Mlddlesboro News to George W. Albrecht and will go to Owensboroto edit a republican sheet. Grazing must bo short in the newspaper field in the ex-magic, but it is to bo hoped that this new entry into tbe journalistic derby will not starve to death. Julius Blue, of Kieseme, Fla., looked into tbe barrel of bia pistol to aee if it was loaded. A large crowd attended bia burial the following day. As Emmett Logan would say: Things have come to a h 1 of a pass, When a man can't wallop bia on jackaBS. Because the Interior Journal has taken occasion to rebuke some of thn methods of those who wear the livery of democrats to better serve the republican devil, and further perhaps because we have not seen fit to jump on Col. W. 0.' Bradley with both feet and abuse him like a pickpocket, it is reported in the Saturday was McCreary day and the model Congressman was largely on top all around. Down in Franklin county his candidate for the Legislature, Mr. Jamea A. Violett, although to fame and to politics almost unknown, defeated Blackburn's man, Col. E. H. Taylor, a life long politician, who bad never known defeat before, by a majority of 331, carrying nearly every precinct, including that of the colonel himself. As Senator Blackbnrn had stomped the county for Taylor, the result is more than gratifying to the sound money men. In Nelson Isaac Wilson, a McCreary man, waa also nominated, beating McKay, a free silver lie, by 500 or COO. It begins to look like McCreary's lead in the race for U. S Senator will give him the nomination on the first ballot. Gen. Hendrick baa ordered bis attorney at New York to institute suit for libel against the Press of that city for publishing a letter from Kentucky saying that he bad compromised a suit for taxes against the Big Sandy R. R. for $12,000 or just half what the State claimed was dne, and that after collecting the amount he placed it to bia own private credit in bank. Gen. Hendrick eays that the story originated in the fertile brain of a disreputable correspondent and that he will make tbe paper smoke unless it makes a full retraction. As the general is a candidate for re-election, the animus of tbe publication is apparent. W e do not know positively, hut w "have $15 in our inside pocket don't you know," which Bays that Mr. Walter P. Emerson is tbe author of the breezy and newsy political gossip, which the Louisville Times publisbps from Cincinnati. Mr. Emerson's intimate knowledge of men and things in theStatea of Ohio and Kentucky, coupled with a memory that is wonderful, .nake him not only a most interesting but a very Instructive writer, and the Times adds to its popularity by engaging his services. A splendid pen picture of gallant old Frank Wolford from the pen of Mr. Eugene W. Newman, who writes under tho nom de plume of Savoyard, appeared in Saturday's Courier-Journal, which ought to be preserved by every admirer of the rugged old diamond in the rough. Hurrah for Trigg county. It too has joined McCreary's sound money column by naming a candidate by 400 over the free silver man. NEWSY NOTES.

Ooxey, of tramp army fame, has boon nominated for governor by the Ohio populits. Thero were only air fights between the Blackburn mun and thoir opponents mountains, so a friend who has recently at Teak's Mill last week. returned from thero tells us, that we have lifted ourselyea body and soul by our boot straps over into the republican camp. The absurdity of such talk makes It almost unnecessary for us to notice it. By birth and by nature we could not re anything but a democrat, but we hope we are not so hide-bound and illiberal as never to see anything wrong in a democrat, simply because he ia one, or any good in a republican for no other reason than he la of the opposite party. We have taken occasion repeatedly to cud gel Joe Blackburn, though alwaya in sorrow and never in anger, because we thought we had a right to wallop our own jackaBS, when we saw against party and party measures, and we will continue to exercise that right, whenever the animals get out of the middle of the road, believing that in party allegience alone can anything be accomplished. There is nothing In common with us and republicanism, but while we detest republican methods, we do not dislike all republicans. As one "black mammy" used to say, "I love you, child, but I bate your ways," so we feel towards Col. Bradley. He represonta all that is antagnonlstic to our political be liefs, but be is a warm personal friend, who has shown his sincerity on repeated occasions, and while we are going to try to help hide him under and adverse ma jority of 30,000 or 40,000, wo are going to treat him fairly and accord him that respect that bia social and political standing entitle him. And if this be treason, make the most of it. Ed Garten, attacked his grandfather with a stick of wood at Murray, and tho old man cut his life out.
