Editor Palatka News: Last year our county commissioner Marshall, after one of hi peculiar search es of the records, discovered a wonderful mares next, to wit: that G W. Lyle owned hundreds of acres of land once taxed in Putnam county and now not returned for taxes to our assessor. My explanation to the Board of Commis sioners was that the land referred to is now a part of Clay county, and is taxed there. And now after sitting eight months longer, our commissioner has dropped two more little eggs in the samo old nest, and with much cackling, invites tho attention of your readers to the result of his laliors: 1st That a certain 23 sere tract "deeded to me is not taxed in my . name. Answer: This tract is returned and fully taxed in the name of my agent, J. 1. C, and as Mr. Marshall has ln?en positively assured by the assessor that tho property was fully taxed, his insinua tion that I have defrauded the revenue in that matter is characteristic of the man. 2. The charge that I have returned a 84 acre tract and a 5 aero lot in all for 25 acres, is a foolish falsehood. My return for these two lots is "50 acres, a part of the "Wiggins grant", and in justice 'to our tax assessor I will say the return is cor rectly entered in the tax Iwk on tile at tho court house. One other point. II. R. Lyle pays tax es on real estate in this county to the ex tent of about $75 per annum. He is also entered on the tax Inx k for a ik11 tax k. Uut not being a plnlanti ropit. he will hardly care to restrain Mr. Marshall in Ins harmless antics lefore the public. G. W. Lyle. i - ; After July 1st there wille a double j daily steamltoat mail service between j I'aiatKa ana oanioru, wnu ir win prove of great lenefit to our readers. We hope then to be able to deliver our paper J1 along tho river promptly in a few hours after it is printed. CITY NOTES. Church services at the usual time and place to-day. The Baptist church, on River street, is undergoing needed repairs. Major Wright and Mr. R. G. Curry, of Tampa, were, in the city yesterday. In Fpite of all his hardships the news payer man is never troubled with having to decide where he will spend tho sum mer. Captain Lucas informs us that the steamer Princess will soon le on the river again, in as good trim as ever. She is now undergoing repairs. Cows are said to often live to lie ono hundred years old in Georgia. In this section, however, a cow over ninety is re garded as pretty tough eating. Mr. J. T. Dunn has returned to St. Augustine from Matanzas, and sends word that ho has had enough of mosqui toes and sandflies to last him a lifetime. The man who said that the democrats could only succeed under the lead of Tilden is now hard to find as the one willing to let his money on the tattooed man. Servic e in tho Methodist church to-day (as usual) at 10:30 a. in. and 7:45 p.m. Subject for morning: "The results of intelligent labor in and out of the church." W. B. Cross has an advertisement this morning of his market, to which we call attention. He keeps the best of meats, lish and vegetables, and invites the trade of the public, Nothing should lie taken for granted but this: Success is tho natural result of special effort, and of that only. This truth applies to every department of hu man labor and enterprise. Capt. A. E. Edwards left last night for Sanford, and will lie absent for some time. Captain Edwards carries aliout as many pounds of solid personal popu larity as any man in Florida. We had a pleasant call yesterday from Mr. J. A. Wilson, who has recently lo cated near Palatka. He comes from Missouri, and is delighted with his new home. Of course he subscribed for The News. Superintendent M. R. Moran, of the J, T. & K. W. R. R., was in the city yes terday, and gave The News a pleasant call. He represents one of the livest roads in the country, and one that prom ises much for Florida. John M. Ramsaur has a card in this morning's paper, to which attention is directed. Ilia horses and vehicles are first-class, and can lie had at any time at reasonable terms. His is the only livery stable in the city, and he well deserves the prosperity he has won in his business. Do not forget the excursion over the J., T. & K. W. R. R. this morning. The train will leave Palatka at 10:35 a. m., sharp, and will give plenty of time at all the points named in the advertise ment elsewhere for all who may go. Re member the time of leaving, 10:35. "You call this a hot day?" asked a prominent lawyer yesterday morning. "Whj', I saw Snow in the postoffice this morning." "And I gathered ice over a foot thick," said a druggist standing near, wiping the perspiration from his brow. The lawyer and druggist solemn ly shook hands and parted. The dust could hardly be said to have leeii drenched yesterday, but it was crushed and desolate looking, and it will rise again. True, it is something else that the poet said would rise again when crushed to earth : but poets cannot at tend to rhyme and facts at one and the same time; all of which means wo en joyed a fine rain yesterday. We have seen one man who was pleased with the Chicago nominations. He was a lone drunk, struggling through the sand up toward West End, at 1 a. m. It seemed to be all up hill with him, and steep, too. He would occasionally pause, get himself firmly balanced, feebly wave his hat at the moon, and exclaim: "H'rah 1" Blaine ! That Slogan for me!" and then struggle onward. Such is life. The Ra'l Tuesday Night. The uniforms of the Gem City Guards at rived yesterday evening, and every thing is now in rcadness for tho great military ball to 'be given for their benefit on next Tuesday night. The ball will take place at Graham's hotel, the clever proprietor of the house having tendered for the purpose his rooms to the ladies in charge of the arrangements free of charge. Tickets are being sold very rap idly at the extremely low price at which they have been put. Everything that will tempt the palate will l3 included in the menu. Of eonrse there will K? a largo attendance, and we can safely pre dict that the occasion will Ik? thoroughly enjoyed by all. Honest John." In our article yesterday morning un der the a I Hive head, Mr. Mangold says that we quoted him wrong in one or two instances, but in the main the article is correct, lie says that the report wa.s common and charges made that Logan had attempted to enlist soldiers for the Confederacy, but that he never believed them, and that he lias known Logan since 1S47, instead of 1837. as printed. Mr. Mangold says he is an independent in polities, and has not yet taken a stand as to who he will vote for. as his action will depend altogether upon who the democrats nominate next month. He says he will vote for the man whom he j believes to 1? most capable and honest. Two F Tightened Men. Yesterday a Jong, lank, cadaverous looking iog from the country was run ning down Water street half frightened to death, when a gentleman ran out in front of his store to still fnrther frighten the dog. His dogsTiip rushed into the store at full tilt.in the rear part of which stood two gentlemen engaged in conver sation, and standing immediately in the clog's path. The gentleman in front shouted out "mad dog," ;and the others hearing the racket and seeing the dog coming towards them, made frantic en deavors to get out of the way. One back ed over a sack of corn and came near breaking his neck, and the other was so badly frightened that he could do noth ing but turn red and pale by turns and jump up and down where standing.until the dog shot through the back door and went out of sight. The peals of laughther from the front of the store told them they had been sold,and they agreed to "set 'em up" all around if yo reported would not print the joke. What is the Clabber Club ? An esteemed lady reader of The News writes all the way from Virginia to ask "What is the Ciabber Club?" Pear ma dame, the Clabber Club is an institution of Palatka, and numbers among its members some of our most prominent people. It is a purely social organiza tion, where tho members meet and dis cuss social and political questions of the day, while gathered around a tureen of clabber with ?poon in hard. The organ ization is something after the order of the famous "Pickwick Club,'" the genial and clever president, Judge Vertrees, re- Id'tsentir.g Mr. Pickwick, and Governor Towns, of Georgia, taking the place of Samuel Weller,only he will not "beware of vidde-s." Many is the pointed joke and ringing laugh that is heard at this club's meeting. The Clabber Club editor o The News is now up the river doubt less seeking yarns wherewith to convulse the members at the next meeting, which will be sufficient apology for not going further into details in this article. Francis Dots. Francis, Fla., June 11, 18.fl. Editor Palatka News. As your readers derive much pleasure and benefit from reading the news from different points in the county, and knowing that a great many eyes are in tently watching Francis and interested in its prosperity, we will note a few of tho leading events as they occur. And first, would say that our new saw-mill blewits first whistle and sawed its fust board in Francis to-dav. It is now readv for bu- j siness, and we predict for them a lively trade as their enterprise, correct business habits, and sociability will draw it. There is a scene of continual activity about the mill, getting in logs, and scon it will bo getting away lumlier. A "building boom" is on the pro gramme for the near future. Our enterprising young groceryman, Ilamp. Martin, has settled another resi dent in town. He is not going to Ik? In land in any great enterprise looking to wards the peopling of Francis, even if ho does have to get a "bottle of soothing syrup occasionally. Judge Roberts has shipped a car-load of melons North and, doubtless, will re alize handsomely on it. A Fourth of July celebration is talked of to be held on ono of our beautiful lakes, and, as all seem to be of one mind, itwH certainly take place. Our frequent showers are bringing for ward the crops with wonderful rapidity. We notice some very fine pieces of corn in the neighborhood. The health of this community is good, but it is no new thing out here on these high pine hills, seventy feet above the waters of the St. Johns, where the cool, bracing ocean breezes come tons through the pines, freighted with their odors ami the scent of flowers. Yes. tell it to the world that Florida is all right especially Putnam countv. Citizen. A Massachusetts Opinion. Nantaskct, June I), 1834. Editor Palata News : I herewith hand you certain extracts from the northern papers relating to the republican nominations: perhaps you may already have seen them. The edi torial of the Boston Transcript, I partic ularly refer to your notice. This paper as you may be aware is a Republican of a pronounced type, and one of the most respected in Boston. (Most of the extracts referred to have been quoted from in these columns. Ed. News) The thanks of the whole South are cer tainly due to the patriots who composed the past convention, as they have opened the door of the White House to a Demo cratic President. Now let our delegates prepare to take advantage of their action and nominate a strong candidate. Respectfully. J. IIu ICS. There is only a slight difference be tween a swell thief ami a saucy artist.

My opportunities for studying the sit uation have been very good, during the last week, and my hoje of Democratic triumph has been gaining strength from day to day. You are aware of the Re publican revolt provoked by the nomina tion of Blaine. He is regarded as the j representative of the worst element of his party, and as sure, if elected, to perpetu ate its worst methods. While the unthink ing crowd, fascinated by his brilliancy and dash, and by his habit of pandering to vulgar animosities, will make this a very noisy campaign, the republicans, who care more for decent government than for partisan success, are hoping to see the Democrats put forward a candi date whose record is unsmirched, and re solving, in that event, to subject their party to the purifying fires of defeat. The most agreeable feature of the present situation is found in the fact that part expediency now coincides per fectly with a desire to seethe democracy advance to the highest ground within its reach. All indications point to the rep resentation of the soundest statesman ship and the most sterling uprightness of the party in the ticket which is to b. nominated next month. Anti-Blaine Republicans in Massachusetts, Connecti cut. New York and New Je rsey are call- ieg out to us: "(Jive us Bayard or Cleve land, :uil you shall have the electoral votes of our states." Mr. TiluVn's letter was published this morning, and nothing now stands in the way of a heaity re sponse to that appeal. I look upon it as settled that one or the otherof those able and high-principled men will lo our can didate. Senator Bayard has the advan tage in experience, and in the length of time during which he has stood before the world as a wise and incori .lptible statesman. But Delaware is both small and sure, while New York is a large and doubtful State. Hence, if state pride is counted on as a decisive factor, the scale will be likely to turn in favor of Gov. Cleveland. Although Mr. Flower has secured a nunuVr of delegates to the Slate Conven vention, which. is to bo held on the 18th, his candidacy is regarded here as little more than a joke. i The possibility of his becoming the nominee at Chicago is scouted bv every one.
