Pres. dent Doty wont with his attorney to Stanford and brought back an order from Judge Saulloy to replace them and it was done. The Recoisd asked Judge Burn side why the guards were taken off and he said that unless guards were on both the Madison and Garrard sides'S'f the Paint Lick bridge, it was no use to keep them on this side, as tho bridge, which is a long one, could b3 fired from the Madison side and the Garrard guards would have no right to shoot at them. As to the other gnards, he said they were on duty at a little bridge which could be replaced for S10 or 15. He told the road's at torney that rather than have tho coun ty pay four dollars a night for guards for an indefinite time, he would re move them, and, in case the little bridge was "burned he would have it replaced, at the expense of the county, it being much cheaper for the county than paying a big sum for guards. The four guards are on duty now, and osts the county 3 a night. Loir llatei to Washington, D.
