Cake v the Troy Dispatch. Tba charges that hove been 10 per sistently preferred against Mr F. C cCake, County Clerk, by J. R. Knux through the) Dhpatch, have culminated in a mil for slander, and the dumages laid at $20,000. The suit is brought on the chargci and t pacifications published in that paper of the 4th inst, made, it is supposed, by Knox, but which aro pub tished without his signature, thus placing the responsibility on Dr. Mudd, tho pub lishcr. Mr. Cu-e cluiras that the charge made heretofore over the signature of J R. Knox were of such a character that he could not successfully brine suit against him, although ho would have pre 1 erred that course. His object is to clear himself of the stigma thus attached to his name, by forcing tho authors to prove their accusations, which ho is confident they will fuil in. We are glad to see Mr. Cake taking this wove, because, in the firs' place, it fIiows his consciousness of innocence, and that he court a f.iir and impartial investigation of his official actions; and seconaly, because it will be tho means of putting a stop to the disgraceful contro versy th it is damaging the whole county "Wo hivo before expressed our belief that Mr. Cake was innocent of these recusation, and tho course he has now taken confirms us in that belief. It at least shows that ho doca not shrink from the public gaze, or wish to hide any er rors that ho may have committed during his official life. We would rather hafu seen the suit brought against the parly preferring the ohnrges, but at tin namo was signed to them it necessarily had to be hrought cniit-the proprietor nf the Ditpatth. We do not wibh our con-temporary any harm, but we would like to pee Mr. Cake coma nut of this fight with his skirts clear, for a man's character is worth more to him than anything else in life Not wishing to condemn any one unjustly, we anxiously await tho trial, as do the friends of both parties throughout tho county. The public school opened last Monday with 100 scholars. There was a called term of tlio County Court last Monday. The Circuit Court will commence its fall session next Monday week. Mr. Wing will start out on his tax collecting tour on the 14th of next month. The Parker Seminary will not open this fall, but will commence some time to January or February. M. T.

Laroe Potato Mr. Abner Truo called at our office one day last week, and presented us a large sweet potato, raised by his son, Mr, Alonzn Trtie, on his farm near llobinson's Mill, in Hurri cane township,. It is of the red variety, end weighs three and a half pounds. A Pio Nio of Old Settlers Mr. Isaac N. Bass-ye, probably one of the oldest residents of the county, made us a very pleasant call last Saturday. He oamo to this county in tho year 1818, be for it was named, all this section of country then being embraced in the county of St. Charles. He was only nine years old at that time, and ha ex perienced all the hardships of pioneer life, Mr. Baisye suggested that it would be a good idea for all the old settlers of the county to have a re unioa at tome convenient point, where tbey may meet and live the past over again in sooial talks. It will doubtless meet with the pprobation of our pioneer citizens, and be a Terry interesting affair. Much in terestiog information eould thus be gleaned, that will otherwise sink into forgetfulpess. Wo hope they will put the idea into practical effect. If only a few of them meet and make arrangements, hey will have no trouble gatboringihese sturdy yeomaury together; end w here ffer them th f 9ra Warkstilto anil Wrsten flallraari, Editor -Hira'd: Business callinc no to the eastern portion of the county last Wwex, and being in the clow neighbor hood of tko above road, I concluded to go down on same in company with David Allen, Lsq., and sea with mv own eves whether there wan tny truth in the re ports occasionally heard about Troy, that somo work was being done on this road I frankly confess that I was surprised to leo the amount of wotk done and tho number of hands at work. I learned from Messrs. McKenzie and Latley that there were nearly three hundred hands, including choppers, shotelcrs and scra pers, all busy at work, besides an Kxca vator, which is a great curiosity and especially adapted for grading on lovel plain or bottom, such as said road runs over. This mochino is on four wheels, is drawn by eight mules, and bos an cl-e vator which carries the dirt from the plow and deposits it on the track. I am told that witb the excavator they have made nearly a mile of road in one day in this county. Tbo work can be done fur nbsut G cents per yard, perhaps less. The grading is all done from B T Cocke's field to south of McL'iins creek and looks remarkably well, It is thrown up from two and a half to four fret, is above highest water, and is perfectly straight. I was on that part of the work and saw that much myself. I also learned that some twenty odd miles of grading between Clarksvi.lc an 1 Dar denne were done, and that the entiro work will be done find the cars running by January 1st, 1873 I would bo glad to think so, but when our Fanguine friends of tho Bluff have had as much experience in railroad promises as we have had, perhaps they will not be so rash in their predictions. Now, Mr. Editor, in concluding this article, I think I properly represent the views of the reflecting men of the county when I say that no good reason exists why we should not have two raiiroann in this county ; by to doing every section would be occommodatad, and wo could move forwurd in the great work of de veloping our county and adding to its wealth and population. Therefore I say hurrah for both roads. 15 Temperance I'lc-Mc. Editor llerattl: Cold Water Lodge gave a pic nic last Saturday, near Hank Point. Rov. O. S. Thompson, Prof. J II. Gaff. Rev. J.

Editor Btrald: This has been a day fraught with all-absorbing signiGcanco to the people of Lincoln county, and to those who reside iu tho romantio and umbrageous regions of "Hawk's Beak" in particular. Agreeably to a long and well understood arrangement, the pco pie of steady habits in this and adjoining vicinities, not excepting the beauty, do quenco and intelligence of your eater- prising village, hero met together to dis cuss the proper measures by which their great enemy, ''Old ltye," could most effectually bo suppressed. As is usually the case with great and spontaneous up risings of the pooplo, the iuiigniGcant individual to be so rurumarily wiped out, was nowhete to be found, and as "nppo sition is the life of business," there was perforce but littlo Ufa hero. The first speaker, whom, unfortunately, wo did no! hear, delivered, wo will trust, an eloquent and conclusive argument in favor of the immediate, total and unending ennvic tiun, suppression and demolishtnent of tho long endured and much accursed criminal. Alter this burst of eloquent denunciation, the meeting adjourned to decide the case of a large pile of odiblas and a small supply of drinkables, near ut hand. Judging by the interest here manifested, wc could almost believe this to have been tho principal object of the gathering. The chickens were good, the cakes and pic-) better, and the female portion of the gathering, to our unso phisticatcd eyes, the sweetest and best of all. After we had done justice, or in justice, as you please, to the edibles, and sufficiently, though modestly and with a proper degrco of shyness, admired th sweet faces, and blushed nealli the curi ous and no doubt sc.crctlv amused smile of the ladies, we with the others as-em bled gathered neath tho protectin shade of the scrub nak nrbnr, and for nearly two long hours ptibmittted to th dull "bonnjrs" of a half dozen or to of the assembled eloquenco of tho occasion. No doubt 'twas good for digestion ; it ought to be. Tho firct speaker began by s'aling that he, like some noted speaker in times past, hml unfortunately stuck his speech into an auger hole, and couldn't get it out; but jut as the faces of the audience werti lighting up with secret thankful ncsa that they wcro thus to escape, he suddenly stuck his thumb and finger into the hole, which proved to be his vest pocket, and drawing forth tho "lost notes" proceeded to deliver on eloquent and effective dii-courso upon the evils and probable cures of that very unpleasant curse to down fallen humanity Intern perance. Ho wa followed promptly by ono of tho5e pleasant, jolly, poetical speakers, who make you laugh in spite of yourself. He began by saying that he hadn't anything whatever to say, and proceuded to siy it. First, he told a funny story, laughed at it and made everybody laugh to see him launb. Then he becamo poetic and soared aloft on the winged Pegasus of poesy in such elo quently poetical strains as "I'll strike at tho monger's head, whato'cr I do, And if I see Its I ail, I'll giro thai a licr, loo.' Then ho told the story of the boy that they "found out was a fool anyway," and applied it to himself; ar.d thon he waxed eloquent, and made the scrub oaks trcm ble like aspens in an autumnal breeze, the sounding aisles of the dim woods ring and the feathered denizens of the for est to fly away in terror at the thunders of his eloquence, and. then, with an ex pression like that of a frightened school boy who had "spoke his piece," ho subsided, and was followed by an aged and wrinkled veteran, who frankly admitted that the "previous speakers had taken all the wind out of his sails." To prove his assoition he made on unmis takably "windy" speech of at least half an hour, We tremble when wo think what we must have endured had not tho "wind been taken out." He handled those church members who fuvor tho prisoner on trial, "Old Ilye," without gloves or mittens either, and compli mented the ladies like a youth of twenty Ho was followed by one, who from being an intimate friend and boon companion of the poor absent prisoner, has become his most inveterate foe, and goes about the country for the sole and openly avowed purpose of getting up societies to totally and immediately annihilate him. His romarks were confined princi pally to telling what he, tho speaker, had done in this vicinity to create a prejudice against his old friend, and thon he begged loave to introduce a "nico young man from Illinois," who oame promptly, but bluehingly, forward, and after a bow and emile of intended captivating swsatneis towards the Jadiee, stated that he never made a speech in his life, and looked as though he wished he had never tried. Then he told story of tome poor old Sootchman, and waited for tho audience to laugh, but as they didn't fie would got drunk dud lay down in a ditch w. no better than a hog, and he ought to know, for ho had been there. Tbo i he strove to gain an approving smite from the ladles by a few flattering remarks to them, but didn't seem to succeed, though ol the old married men nrcscnt aughed a sickly apprcciativa kind of laugh t.'hen lie stated that "we are all, mora or less, under petticoat govern ment. And then, as he didn t teem to hove anything more to say, looked uhecp iili, and dropping down from tho slund like a young rooster from an onk log after his first attempt to crow, hi sub i sided, and we all started for home, and the only pleasant remembrance is tho tasto nf whisky in the water barrel re tained by truly your?, "Honest John."
