VIVE! VA LEI
Live and farewell! Of course, as
Inna as nearion earth, wo nie com
pelled to live, but d d tew of us fare
I'll. The Latin maxim, however, I
address to those generous people of
Columbus who promised to sust'iin
mc in the conduct ol a Color-Line
Democratic organ in their city. I lore i
U the fruit of their promises nn in
fernal Radical paper. I commit the
paper to the hands of these d d ras
cally third termers because I have in
mii.v - -rait - it ny longer. Tub
Puess is now on a sound financial ha
i; can, and will pay its debts; will
le a good paper, as far as G.ant and
Morton are concerned, and wilt "kick
up h 11" generally.

Templeion, T. W. Johnston, R. R.
Spiers, W. H. Newlon, J. L, Moss &
Co., Goo. Molcb, and others, I am un
der all sorts of oblignlions; but I'll
be d d it I'm under obligations to
any body else, except Col. Cady, and
I owe bim $50, which I'd bo glad for
some color liner lo pay.
Columbus is a fraud a d d rasoa 1
y cheat, and ought to be suppressed. I
am going to run for Congress; but I
expect, like all Congressmen, the race
will end in hell. Because, Columbus
is a place of unfulfilled promises, and
that is the reason the Press is a Rad
ical pap r to-day. I do not feel vin
dictive, but I am naturally disgusted.
FTmve not -deceived any women; I
huvo not xloli'ii nn thing; I have de
frauded no man; I have tried honestly
to paj; my debts; but, from present
appearance. I must certainly have
"played h II." 1 have lied, it is true,
but it was necessary to blind the in
fernal inscals ofthe-'ColumbusCliquc."
I have destroyed barrels of whiskey,
but I have edited a good paper.
If you won't support a Dcraocintio
paper, I herewith present you with a
Radical journal which for eight years
you unstained; and if you have any
"complaints to yiake, l feel fully justi
fied in saying, (very unpoetically how
ever.) but in the language of antiquity,
"go to h 11."'
These d d rascals who take charge
of the Press to-day, have been my
friends, and I recommend them to the
patronage of that community which.
Lis shown by its own acts that it will
not support its own people.
Adieu, gentlemen! Bye-bye! Fare
well, as I said in the beginning; but
if you tlu fare well, you will not get
your deserts. Most of you are rascals
and I send you a paper printed, pub
lished and edited by your compatriots
in villainy and lies.
Yours, very muchly,
A. P. JORDAN, Deceased.
p, 3- If &y man "ho has paid his
subscription in advance, is disposed to
make a row about this early death of
the Press, allow me to suggest that he
cannot possibly have the' audacity to
say that the above item is. not worth
$2, and I send it to him without asy
extra charge. If he does not think
it is worth $2, then he may go to thun
der, the devil, or any other of his inti
mate friends. A. P. J.
