On Saturday,.the 12th ins't., an election
was held at Louisville (Ky.). for Magis.
trates and consitables,resulting in the sue
cess of the Know-Nothings without seri.
ous opposition. The election,. however
was characterized by some disgiraceful
scenes. A man nained Win. Gray fired
twice at another person, but missed his
aim. A mob then pursued Gray, who re.
ceived two balls in his body, and it. is said
several passed through his hat. A German
seeingr some of his friends attacked with
brick.bats,tited a revolver twice am woun.

cotfee house, severely beaten, and every

The Louisville Journal, from which we
gather these particulars, does not charge
any particular pnrty with being il the
wrong, but very correctly calls upor the
authorities to punish them no matter to
what party they may be attached.

Jeer Mister Banner: In your last
aper I sees you goes agin Clarindon.
Then I. went for the Banner' !ast.
pring, it was because I thought, you.
nent for Wesley and our Court House..
Slt now you. has turned your outo
nd- changed your briches, and it takes
smart feller like myself to no you
s the same Afister Banner. All you
as sed agin our Court Mouse is trash,
nd as I hearn one ot your Big Law
,era in Suintervillo say, is nothing but
umposity in the ingus, and thunder
I the throte. I is it is true Mister
lanner a No Nothin aud I does go
gin furriners and abolitioners and all
hat sort of nonsense ; but I dues no.
i ugh to bleve that nun but the Law.,
ers goes agin our Curt House, and th: t.
>eause it makes big fees and ceeps the
>cople a watin on Ca to git a chaice to.
yay em muny. But what rite have you.
,Vister 11anner to say a word agin Clar
ndu'? I. thought yore paper. was for
Diarindon. as well as for Clairmont.
3ut if you gus to treat us like furriners
n that way, why we will soon have
I Banner as well as a Court House to
yursells in Claringdon, Why don't
you now .hister anner that all the
eple in Claringdon is for the Court
[louse; and what does you want.
Bm to go to yore furrin Cort
House for ? Why there are my frend
Capten Mosos Benbow, and all the
Benbows, and the Brocks, and the
llagins, and the Stukes', and Docter,
Briggs, and Squire Reynolds, and the
KeFlys, and the Weeks', and Doctor
Rich, and Docter McCaully, and the
Rhames', and the Butlers, and the
lBrogdons, and the Gunes', and the
Blackwells, and the Nelsons, and'the
F rk Black River, and Captin Ganca,.
and the Harvins, and Docter Ingram,.
and the Richardsons, and the Burgess'
and the Tndals, anr.d the Connors, and
the Mannings, and the Warshums, and,
the Gibbons', in Lower Salem, and alt.
the peple, and all the no nothins, and'
the rich and the poor this side and
tother side Black River and Puddini.
Swamp, spicielly, our reprasentativo
little Docter Sum, who you no is a.
trump and a legunary.
Now Mister Banner I want to no if
the peple of Clarendon want to cetch
a line trout in Cudo Lake or tickel fish
in Briuiuton or Pudden Swamp, why
you shuud force em to go all the way
to Claremount to dip for small kats in
the mud puddles ot Pocotalliger. 0
Mister banner you. is certainly rong
in this rispect, and if I owe you any
thing, send down your nccount to
rights P. 0.and lIwill pay it, but dont
pretend to comie over me With sich
contrap-hions as these. Well but you
Pa-y you luva us Mister Banner, is the
reason you cant part with us. Well I
cant say -that I ltvs so hard or so much
as all that comes to, but may be I
would,'if I got. all the fees maid-the
proftits and y o had to pay em. But
turn it this way Midter Baancr, and i
aimi feared you wud not have sich a
monstrus la v f11r us. Veili after ali,
it ant sich a mighty partin Misicr
Banner as you wud make out. We
wud hav so much to due at our owin
Court Hlouse, that your Lawers wud
come down to help us; and if therse
any of you we cant git down, why we
wud send a Branch of the Nourth Ei.
turn Rale Rode to feh em. But dont
talk yore blarney to us Mis'ter Banner
about lur'in us too much to let us go.
Faro sed the sanue thing to Moses, but
he wa'nt fuhed by it and I want nether.
King Gorg~e sed the same thing to
G inerel W ashinton, but he didlent
blev'e him. No my dear Mister Blan
ner if we was both put in the same
krib w~heni we was little boys, and we
growe'd tu. Large fur it to hold us to.
gether, I think I wud show not only
my Iuv but my purli-teness, by getin
up an levein it all to yourself. lf'you
luv us then ilister Banner let us stay
in our own County where wewant ~to
stay ; and if' you luv the peple of Clare
muunit cloere away the rubish of Claren
don Lawsui's, and let them have a qi
et time and a short turn tothmef.
T1hat is the genuin way to lav us ; and
to luv; thoem, Mister Banner. .But if'
you luv the Lawyers, and I hope AMis.
ter Bauner you. is not one of em, or if'
you is, that you is .not much of a one,.
mor they aint no waysato my likens,
then try to keep. us together in strife
and confusion, where tis all pay and
nto prollits, all eckspensei and no gane,.
all ime and nothin saved, and the
Buzzards is the furst and the last at.
Now I hope fister Bahnner you wvilL
publish this as you done my letter of
last, yere ; for if' it is true, why the
truth ort to be spuken ; and if it is not
true, then it t6rt to be conradicted -
and if it be tu eckspensive to you to
prlinit it, senitd down your Bill to
Wrights Bluff P. O, to my signitter
and it will be paid for as ansadvartirse..
