One of the candidates for jailer of

his published card:
"I am a Democrat bred,
I am a Democrat born.
And when I am dead
There will be a Democrat gone."
This reminds us of a "red hot" demo

a certain office some twenty years ago.
This gentleman was the hottest member
of the democratic fold and in fact was so
hot that uneasiness was felt lest he melt
and spill himself The primary came
and he got less than 200 votes of a total
of 1,800. This made him sore and like
many other disappointed office-seekers
he went to the nemy, the republican

Mrs. Desha Breckfnridge, of Lex

every Kentucky woman who can go
to Washington and march in the big
parade of women to be given March

C. Mrs. Genevieve Stone, wife of Con

of delegations from the States, writes
to Mrs. Breckinridge that she hopes
for a large delegation from Kentucky.
'There Is a fair prospect," says Mrs.
Breckinridge, "that the women's
parade will be more interesting to the
throngs of visitors In Washington
than the inaugural parade of the next
day. Long lines of men in silk hats
may show the solid strength of Demo
cracy, but they won't please the esthe
tic sense as will women clad as heralds,
mounted on white charges and blow

picturesque and varying costumes."

A Letter of Ante-Bellum
This letter we gladly commend to the
young ladies of this city for both its dig
nity and its beauty of expression and
composition. When we say young ladies,
let it be remembered that the writer was
still in her 'teens. Editor.
Wigwam. March 31. 1S45.
Your more than welcome note, my
dear Sarah, reached me yesterday and
you cannot imagine for a moment what
an agreeable surprise it proved. Altho'
you h.ad promised faithfully to write to
me, I could not help thinking that you
would forget both the promise and me,
but I assure you that it shall never be
the case again. I will invariably belie .-e
the slightest declaration you may make
in the future, and I am blushing now for
the injustice I did you before your note
You must have had a most charming
time in the city of Glasgow and at your
cousin's wedding, where there were so
many rich viands and delicate wines. I
suppose the "feast of reason and flow of
soul" were present with you on that oc
casion, and that you enjoyed yourself
exceedingly. I would that I had been
there, if it were only to see an "ugly
bride," as you call the happily married
one, for I never heard of such a thing
before. I thought it a part of a bride's
duty to look beautiful.
I laughed at your account of the very
wat:hful old maid who had charge of
you during your mother's absence in
Columbia. Do tell me her name, with
all the funny things she did and said.
I hear that you have gone to St. Louis.
How much 1 should liKe to have known
it before, that I might have given you a
letter to my sister, Mrs. S , who
lives in that city, and whom, I think,
you would have liked for my sake.
There's vanity for you! I wish I could
be with you, but alas! for 'this and many
other things. Madame Rumor is quite
as busy with your affairs as with mine.
She accuses you of going all the way to
St. Louis to make preparations for a
very interesting and rapidly approach
ing occasion in which you are to be the
heroine. For my part, I am somewhat
inclined to believe the jade in this par
ticular matter, though I know that she
is not to be trusted always.
Let me beg of you to pay me a visit as
soon as you possibly can after your re
turn to Richland. I shall be so anxious
to see you and to bear all the news.
Gen. Cowan is here this evening and
desires me to present his compliments
to you. He says very pretty things on
your subject, but I will not fatigue you
by repeating them at this time, as I
think my note has attained the size of
quite a great affliction May I trust that
your future may never be darkened by
any influence more leaden than I fear
my note has already become.
','The beautiful F." reached home
some fortnight ago, and is grateful for
your compliment. Mr. Giles thinks it
an evidence of your sweet disposition
that you have said even that. Sister
Epps declares that her "Japonica"
reigns supreme in Mr. G.'s heart.
Both my sisters desire to be present
ed to you most affectionately. Sister E
says that if you are translated to Ken
tucxy, as we all fear you will be, that
her acquantance with you will be a
short pleasure and a long regret.
And now, my dear Sallie, good night.
Most warmly and affectionately yours,
