A Suit for Slander.
'V. C. 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

called at our office one day last week,

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

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

Hawk's Oyxk, Sept. 14.
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
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?,
