Public Speaking. Maj. T. G. Brown,
of the 65th I ndiana Mounted Infantry,
who has just arrived from Knosville,
will address the citizens of the 1st Con
gressional District at the following times
and placos:
Washington, Friday, Dec. 4th.
Petersburg, Saturday, Dec. 5th.
Huntingbarg, Monday, Dec. 7th.
Elizabeth, (Spencer co.,) Tuesday, 8th.
Boonville, Thursday, Dee, 10th.
Mt. Vernon, Saturday, Dee. 12th.
The speaking will be at 7 o'clock p. m.,
with the exception of BoonviHe and Mt
Vernon, at which places the hour will
be 1 o'clock p. m.
Major Brown is a very popular speak
er, and as he has just arrived from the
"Front," his "experiences" will, no
doubt, be found very interesting. We
hope the people will turn out en matte
to welcome the gallant Major.
'We are indebted to the attentive
clerks of the Liberty No. 2 for files of
Memphis papers of the 30th ult., for
warded from Cairo by the fast Adams
Express.
The Memphis Journal has
changed owners and editors. From the
salutatory of the new editor, J. S. Clark,
we should infer that he was a Confeder
ate Democrat.
He talks about the liberty of the press
being circumscribed, just as if the liber
ty of the press ever existed in Memphis
until now.
asSe?" The steamer Kenton arrived
here Wednesday night with sick and
wounded Indiana soldiers aboard, under
the charge of Dr. Bill of the army. Much
praise is awarded Capt. Dnnlap for gen.
erous treatment of the boys on the trip.
The sick and wounded were accommoda
ted In the hospitals here.

ttT Look at S. E. Gilbert's advertise
ment of real estate, to be seld at auction
on the 15th inst. This is a good chance
to get good lots.
A Change. J. B. Maynard, late edi
tor of the Cannelton Reporter, has
dried up his paper and assumed the du
ties of '' local " of the Louisville Demo
crat. Maynard will feel more at home
in Louisville, as lemons were exceeding
ly scarce in Cannelton. J. R is sensi
ble, it is a long remove towards old Bourbon-
county. Wo hope he will have a
good time of it and fat rations.
Ska? Maj. Gen. John A. Logan passed
through Louisville a few days siuce from
Vicksburg, accompanied by his staff, en
route to Chattanooga. He will take com.
mand of the Fifteenth Army Corps, in
Gen. Sherman's army.

Literary and Debating Association.
A friend sends us a note calling our at
tention to the want of some literary as
sociation in this city, for the amusement
and cultivation of the young men of the
city, during the long winter evenings.
We fully agree with our correspondent
that such an organization would be of
incalculable advantage, not only to the
young men of the city, but to our citizens
in general.
If the attention and interest of the
young men were properly enlisted in this
enterprise, it would give them occupation
of a profitable character for the time that
is now wasted in vain and fri. lous par- .
suits, or in scenes of disipation, to which
they may be tempted to resort for amuse
ment We have an excellent library and
reading room, now in successful orpera
tion, and an association of the character
of the one we have suggested would be
a most valuable addition to these.
We hope to see early steps taken to
organize such an association. Let the
young men take hold of the matter at
once.
A Row. There was a right smart
sprinkling of a row on tha corner of
Fourth and Main streets, late on Wed
nesday night Officers Tenneforde and
Gates interfered, and quieted matters.
Tenneiorde took a pistol from one fast
young gentleman of this city, whose
name we withhold fcr the present, and
whom we hope, fo, the credit of his
friends, will never again be found in
such company.
AST" A gentleman was relieved of a
watch in a bowling saloon of Wednes
day night It has not been recovered.
Our town is not yet free of rogues, and
. is not likely to be soon.
We were gratiBed last night to
meet our good friends Capt Ed. and
Lieut Dare White, of the White 6rm of
Green River. Ther were fresh from
Canada, but saw nothing of John Morgan.
They are in magnificent health.
Game, Poultry and Vrkisox. Oar
enterprising friend Frank Felker, corner
of Main and Third streets, is a public
benefactor, supplying the community as
he does with vast quantities of Turkies,
Quails, Venison, and Game of all kinds
at moderate prices. His stock
gives out, and his store is never
of customers. Call and see him.

Doing ix Rome as the Romans Do.
The Catholic Telegraph relates the fol
lowing :
A young American Democrat went re
cently to Rome to study for the priest
hood in the Propaganda. He began his
first letter from the Eternal City as fol
lows: "The first thing which forcibly
attracted my attention here, was the dis

Raid ok Mount Sterling Destruction-
ok Property. We learn by private
dispatch from Mount Sterling, that a
band of guerrillas, numbering about two
hundred, supposed to be the command
of the notorious John T. Williams, en
tered that town about 3 o'clock on Wed
nesday morning. They burned the Court
ilouse, and stole all the horses they could
find, including all the stage horses of
Messrs. Irvin & Wolverton, and a large
number of Government horses. Their
stay in the town was very short, and no
other damage was done. It is not known
what direction they took when they left.
Louisville Journal. StF
tG&- Charles W. Hall, lately convicted
by a court-martial for fraud in the sale
of horses to the Government, and sen
tenced to pay a fine of $10,000 and to
six mohths' imprisonment, is now in In
dianapolis. His friends claim that the
fine has been remitted, and the sentence
of imprisonment will not be enforced.
New Albany Ledger.
It is a little remarkable, and not very,
either, that Hall's friends are confederate
and conservative Democrats, and it is
natural they should think him a clever
fellow after having been convicted of
stealing from the Government
