Leaf by leaf the roses fall. 

Drop by drop the spring runs dry; 
One ay one, beyond recall. 

Sunnier beauties fade and die; 

But the roses bloom again, 

And the spring ■will gush anew 
In the pleasant April rain, 

And the summer’s sun and dew. 

So iu hours mi deepest gloom. 

When the fprings of sadness fall, 
xAnd the in their bloom

We shall fitxl some hope that lies 
Like a si^nt germ apart.

When grief a winter shall have fled.

the appointed lime, our prophet did ‘shut

‘to their skins.’ 

After a time this April shower ceased, 
and our friend the prophet went out to see 
what had happened. 

Dreadful was the sight that met his 
eyes — the whole human race was as mad

strongly suggested Dan Marble in his Yan-

But to the sermon — or at least a portion 
of it — for it was utterly impossible to re- 
port the whole. 

'I’he congregation was large, as it had

year and a settlement, wlnle the enligh- 
tened Mayor of a Jersey village says ‘he 
dont know what /one is. but he thinks mar- 
riage is a sugar-coated pill.’ A meta- 
physical d.amsel at our side considers love 
as ‘an egotism cut in two,’ tlie lady being 
the ‘better half.’ Our joily Iriend Tomp- 
kins considers love as a sort of Billecarte 
Salmon and champagne festival, entailing 
next morning the lieadache of marriage! 

Dr. M. maintains that courtship is a 
masquerade, which lasts till the parson or 
the Mayor legalizes the hoax, when the 
parties throw aside the domino, and appear 
in their true colors. 

Love, like all intoxication, is pleasant 
enough when progressing and while it 
lasts, but oh! the misery of gelling sober 
— that’s awful! A gentleman — not our- 
self — who had once the misfortune to be 
hanged — it is, of course, never the poor 
fellow’s fault— declared, after his return to 
respectable life, an ornament to society,

house on the soutS b'anlTbf the Rogue Uiv 
er. At about 3 o’clock in the morning of 
the 23d of March, the house was surrouu 
ded, and Captain Wright and his compan- 
ions were murdered by the hostile savages 
to whom his own professedly peaceful In- 
dians had betrayed them. 

Some of the Indians say that Captain 
Wright was called to the door, grappled 
and killed by a blow from a hatchet, and 
then cut to pieces. There was a small 
force of volunteers a short distance off’, 
but the work was done so noiselessly that 
they heard nothing of it, but were them- 
selves, immediately afterward, surprised 
and cut to pieces. 

After this bloody massacre, the treach- 
erous friendly Indians joined the war par- 
ty iu open revolt. They at oijce made a 
descent upon the settlements, laying waste 
all before them between Port Oxford and 
the California Pne, and murdering all the 
whiles encountered on their way. At the 
mouth of Rogue river, everything was de- 
stroyed except the picket fort, in which 
the few survivors had assembled. There 
they were hemmed in by the savages, the 
communications all cut off, and at the 
date of the letter alluded to, March 25, the 
whole country wa.s iu a state of war. 

Sad Picture of a once Beautiful and Hap- 
py Female. 

The Mrs. Howard, to whom we alluded 
in our last, was rearrested yesterday mor- 
ning only a short time after her discharge 
from the watch-house. She wss found by 
a policeman, in a stable, of course, gross- 
ly intoxicated. After being taken belore 
Justice Davis, she was sentenced to the 
penitentiary for thirty days as a vagrant. 

The history of this unfortunate crea- 
ture is a melancholly one. Some may cen- 
sure, but we are disposed to pity her. 
Less than a year ago, she was living in 
New York with her husband, who held a 
position of honor and trust in one of the 
large mercantile houses iu that city. She 
was admired for her beauty and intelli- 
gence, moved in an exalted spheie, and 
was surrounded by friends and relatives, 
who respected and loved her. Last fall 
her husband was sent upon a collecting 
tour, and she accompanied him. On their 
way hither, the husband fell iu with a 
Company of ‘‘confidence” or ‘‘patent safe” 
men, and was induced to join in their ne- 
farious business. 

In this city his guilt became known — 
he was arrested, convicted, and sentenced 
to the State Prison, at Auburn, for a term 
of years, whore he uow remains. — This 
fact becoming known toiler family and 
friends, they at once disowned her, leav- 
ing her alone in the world, and surround- 

Senatob Douglas Fifteen \ears Ago. 
In the fourth volume of the Law Reporter, 
(Boston 1842) we find the following ac- 
count of a person who has recently been 
He I pfominent before the American people. It 
is contained iu a letter from a Boston law- 
yer who had emigrated to Illinois. After 
speaking of a change in the Juditiary, 
made for parly purposes, he says: 

‘The Judge of our circuit is S. x\. Dou- 
glas, a youth of twenty -eight, who was the 
Democratic candidate for Congress iu 18- 
30, in opposition to Stuart, the late mem- 
ber from this countv. He is a Vermonter, 
a man of considerable talent, and in the 
way of dispatching business, is a perfect 
‘steam engine in breeches.’ 'Ibis dispatch 
is the only benefit our Court will dcrivo 
from the change. He is the most Demo- 
crat Judge lever knew. While a case is 
going on he leaves the bench and goes 
among the jieople and among the members 
of the bar, takes a cigar, and has a social 
smoke with them, or often sitting in their' 
laps, being in person, five feet nothing, "or 
thereabouts, and probably weighing one 
hundred pounds. I have often thought we 
should cut a queer figure if one of your 
Suffolk bar should drop in.’ 

Lorenzo Dow. — On one occasion, he 
took tho liberty while preaching, to de- 
nounce a rich man in the community, re- 
cently deceased. The result was an arrest, 
a trial for slander, and aiu imprisonment in 
the county jail. After Lorenzo got out of 
‘Limbo,’ he announced that, in spite of his 
(ill his opinion) unjust punishment, ho 
should preach, at a given time, a sermon 
about .another rich maiii’ The populace 
was greatly excited, and a crowded house 
greeted his appearance. With greaUsolem- 
nity he oponad the Bible and read, ‘x\.nd 
there was another rich man who died and 

went to ,’ then stopped short, and 

seemed to be suddenly impressed; ho con- 
tinued: ‘Brethren, I shall not mention the 
place this rich man went to, for fear he has 
some relatives in this congregation, who 
will sue me for defamation of character.’ 
Tho effect on the assembled multitude was 
irresistable, and he made the impression 
permanent by taking another text, and nev- 
er alluding to the subject again. 

SoMEiniNG Like Muti.nt. — In a late 
number of the New York Mirror (one of 
.Mr. Fillmore’s organs) we find tho fol- 
lowing mutinous language; 

We must frankly say, that if Mr. Fill- 
more has stooped to the imposition of tho 
‘degrees’ and ‘pledges’ of any secret, oath 
bound league that will shackle his liberty 
to appoint or remove from office any man 
who may be eminently worthy or unwor- 
thy to discharge the duties of his posi- 
tion, wo cannot and we will not work, 
write, or vote for his election.’ 

.^^''The Haverhill Gazette says: 

‘The last combination of names that we 
have beard of as suitable candidates for 
President and Vice President, is that of 
Freemont and Grinnell, under the title of 
the ‘exploring ticket.’ 

Freemont can sweep

The Troublesome Neighbor. 

A few years ago, a poor mechanic of a 
very quarrelsome disposition settled near a 
Christian farmer, whose friends expressed 
to him their sympathy in the annoyance he 
wa.s very likely to receive. 

‘Never mind,’ said the good man, ‘I nev- 
er yet had a quarrel with a neighbor, and I 
am too old to begin now.’ 

Some six months passed, aud then be- 
gan a series of petty annoyances, which 
the farmer bore uncomplainingly; but this 
only irritated his neighbor the more, until 
meeting the farmer one day iu the height 
of passion, he poured upon him a torrent of 
abuse and insult. 

‘Friend,’ said the farmcrgently, ‘no man 
under the influence of passion can reason 
clearly; como to me calmly, and wc will 
discuss your griev.inces.’ The angry man 
raised his clenched hand to strike him, but 
was restrained by spme unseen influence, 
and both went on their way.

The motion to refer was withdrawn. 

In compliance with a motion to appoint 
a committee to propose a suitable basis of 
representation, the chair named the fol- 

Conveution existed throughout cho district, 
and that his chances of riiceivinn- the nora- gentlemen: vV. H. McBrayer, of 

ination were thereby unjustly prejudiced. 
His letter in reply to a call made upon him 
through tho columns of our p.aper, some 
weeks since, wat thought to be ambiguous 
in its meaning; and it was even supposed 
by some tliat he would be a candidate with- 
out regard to tho action of the Convention. 
Finding that his position was so greatly 
misunderstood, Mr. Haggin atonco resques- 
ted his friends not to put him in nomina- 
tion before the Convention, and his name 
was accordingly not . submitted. We 
are authorized to say, however, that he de- 
signed to go into tho Convention in good 
fait 1 , that tho action of that body has 
his hearty approval, and that he will not be 
a candidate under any circumstances. In- 
deed, so far as wc have been able to ascer- 
tain public sentiment, the action of the Con- 
vention is cordially approved by the entire 
Democratic party, and the majority for 
Kavanaugh and Barnett will bo too large to 
count, even in the event of their having 
any oppositipn; of which, by the w.ay, there 
18 but little probability. It is not to be 
supposed that anybody is particularly am- 
bitious of making a race with the cerUinty 
ot being beaten by a majority of from 2,600 
to 3,000 votes, and we incline to the opin 
ion, therefore, that the nominees of 
Convention will have no opposition. 


The Right Sr 

Spirit. — Tho subjoined let 
ter from Thos. C. Woods, Fsq., of Marion 
county, reached us at an early hour this 
morning, and we hasten to lay it before our 
readers. It will be seen that the letter 
thoroughly Democratic, and that the writer 
not only acquiesces cheerfully in the de- 
cision of the Convention, but that he un- 
dertakes to use his best efforts to secure the 
success of the ticket. It is due to Messrs. 
Newman, Hardin and W’ickliffeto say, that 
they manifested the same spirit in their 
speeches before tho Convention, and that 
not the slightest disaffection exists in the 
Democratic ranks: 

Lzbanon, May 16 , 1866 . 

Editor Ploughbot: 

'ou will please discontinue the pub- 
lication of my announcement in your pa- 
per as a candidate for Commonwealth’ s At- 
torney in the 5th Judicial distiict. The 
voice of the Democracy in Convention as- 
sembled, has chosen Andy Barnett. Esq., 
of Green, as their standard-bearer for that 
office, and to voice I cheerfully hearken, 
and retire from the contest with the pledge 
that my humble efforts shall be dedicated to 
the of the Demoa'acy, and of the 
ncket they have given us for Judge and 
Commonwealth’s Attornev, in the persons 
el George W. Kavanaugh, of Anderson, 
and Andy Barnett, of Green. 

With great respect, I subscribe myself, 
Yours sincerely, 


Anderson; J. B. Montgomery, of Green; 
S. McBrayer, of .Mercer; John H. Tucker, 
of Marion; Dr. C. P. Mattingly, of Nel- 
son; B. L. Owens, of Taylor; and Daniel 
Mcllvoy, of Washington. 

A motion to adjourn until 1 o’clock, p. 
M., was lost. 

After repeated calls for various speakers 
C. C. SmeJIey, of Mercer, consented to 
address tho Convention, and occupied the 
remainder of the forenoon session in defen 
ding the action of the Democracy in call 
iog a Judicial Convention, as the bnly 
means by which the secret machinations of 
the so-called American parly could be sue 
cessfully opposed. 

The Convention then adjourned until 1 
o’clock, p. M. 

Afternoon Session. 

Tho Convention met pursuant to ad 
journraent, and was called to order by the 
President pro tern. 

The Committee on Organization recom 
mended the selection of the following per 
manent officers, and the report was adopted 
by tho Convention: 

Presideut — C. C. Smedley, of Mer 

Vice Presidents — K. C. Gaines, of An

of Mercer; Joseph M. Bowman, of Ma- 
rion; F. G. Murphy, of Nelson, Samuel 
White, of Taylor; and Robt. C. McCord 
of Washington. 

Secretaries — AV. W. Jack, of Marion 
H. M. McCarty, of Nelson; and A. E 
Gibbons, of .Mercer. 

Col. Smedley was thereupon conducted 
to the chair, and in an appropriate address 
stated the objects of the Convention, and 
insisted upon .a due observance of order 

The Committee appointed to propose a 
basis of representation, offered the fol- 
lowing report, which was received and 
unanimously adopted: 

“We recommend that tho basis of rep 
resentatioD be the same as that adopted by 
the Democratic State Convention on the 
8ih of January last, to-wit: that each 100 
Democratic votes polled at the last August 
election, shall be entitled to one vote in

been occasionally spoken of in connection 
with the Judgeship of this district; but it 
is due to myself and my friends to say, 
that I have not sought or desired the nom-

have, and whose qualifications for the of- 
fice I regard as superior lo my own.

presented to the Convention.

The Distinguishing Genius of the Age, 

Nature, now and then, brings forth such 
geniuses as Newton, Shakespeare, Talle- 
rand, Milton, Nelson, Napoleon, AVash- 
iiigton, Franklin, Jefferson, Luther, Grom- 
woil and Jackson. Their powerful intel- 
lects compell the world to admire them. 

The genius of the present age is Dis- 
covery. In the progress ot the arts and 
sciences, this ago is immeasurably superi- 
or to any former one. The present centu- 
ry stands pre-eminent for its wouderlul 
discoveries in the sciences and arts. A- 
mong these, the noble science of Medi- 
cine has made great progress. Professor 
Hollowav has discovered and prepared a 
remedy lor the diseases of man in whatev- 
er clime destiny may give him birth. AA’e 
have, ilia lornier articlJf introduced lo our 
readers this Ji-tinguislied physician, whose 
reputation is already eugraited on the 
world’s history. As a physician, he has 
copied Natuie, and among physicians he 
stands tho acknowledged Emperor. Both 
in the sale of his inedieines, and in the 
number of patients that have taken them, 
he i.s unriv ailed Professor Holloway has 
labored to supply the human family with 
•a permanent remedy for their diseases, to 
which the afflicted may hare recourse with 
a mtiral certainty that they will be cured. 
Tliere is no disease to which they will not 
alloid relief. His Pills and Ointment, pre- 
pared from selections from the vegetable 
kingdom, with great care, will drive dis- 
ease out of tlie system. Thousands of 
tho most intelligent minds of all naiioiis, 
men distinguished in every sphere of life 
— tlie statesman, philanthropist, conquer- 
or, and those whose highest aim is to do 
good to their fellow men, unite in their 
praises of the remedies discovered by 
Professor Holloway for the removal of dis- 

In uniting in this general recommenda- 
tion of the remarkable virtues of Hollo- 
w.ay’s remedies we only perform a Chris- 
tian duty, which the press should never 
! neglect. Those who are eminent for the 
good they do in the world, have a just 
claim upon the press for aid in extending 
the good to the extent of their power. 
Therefore, wo have determined to express 
our opinion that Holloway’s Pills and 
adapted to the of 

perseded that line, which construction led 
inevitably to the adoption of the princi- 
ples embodied in the Kiusas-Nebraska 

Mr. Jones pointed with pride to the pub- 
lic life of Mr. Buchanan, who had received j 
the encomiums of all true national men for' 
the pure morality of his life, and the stern 
patriotism of his character. The record 
of his Democracy was luminous, and 
would not require any attempt to defend 
it from attacks from any quarter. 

Mr. Fuller, of Pa., gave a Democratic in the northern part of that Slate, 
as autho.’ity for his assertion that Mr. 
Buchanan reported the Lancaster Plesolu- 
tions denunciatory of the Missouri Com- 
promise. It was pubi'.'shed in 1862. 

The House adopted the report of the 
Committee of Conference on f-'te deficien- 
cy bill, from which the §300,000 for the 
continuation of the AVashington acqiisduct 
was stricken out. Two hundred and tetl 
thousand copies of the agricultural portion 
of the patent office reports were ordered to 
be printed. 

Mr. Evans deprecated the fatal conse- 
quences to our nationality by the agitation 
of the slavery question. He invoked the 
South to stand firm and in an unbroken 
phalanx against the invaders of their con 
stituiional rights. Adjourned.

yesterday the mystery was fully and satis

was presumed that such was not the case, 
as §14 in money was upon his person. The 
general conjecture is, that the unfortunate 
man committed suicide, as shortly previ

J!^Tho attention of our agricultural

the “Kentucky Harvester,” one of the 
most valuable labor-saving inventions of 
the age. It is a Reaper and Mower com- 
bined, and has already grown into high 
favor among the intelligent farmers of 
Kentucky and other States. It recom- 
mends itself strongly to the common-sense 
of every man, and cannot fail to supersede 
all machines for a similar purpose which 
have yet been tried. Capt. John W. 
Cardwell is the agent for the sale of the 
article in this county. 

It will be seen by the advertisement, 
r that Capt. Cardwell is also the agent for 
the “Pennsylvanian Four-Horse Power 
Thresher, with Tumbling-shaft complete,” 
. said to be much the best Thresher now in 
use. Mr. Robert Mallory, of Oldham 
county in this state, says that he threshes 
with it from three to four hundred bushels 
of wheat in a day, and that more could be 
done by changing the horses so as to pre- 
vent fatisrue. “The straw ffora it,” Mr. 
Mallory states, “is more thoroughly clean- 
ed of grains than by any Tresher hereto- 
fore used, and the grains are less broken.” 
All necessary informatioh may be obtained 
by calling on Capt. Cardwell.

of Kentucky, by every consideration ofhal-

Tu the Whigs of KerUmky; 

In conformity with the suggesUou of the 
assemblage of whigs.lately convened at Lex- 
ington and in pursuance of the powers vested 
in them as a State Executive Committee, 
the undersigned respectfully recommend to 
the old line Whigs in every county in the 
State to hold, at an early day, meetings in 
their respective counties for the purpose of 
effocting an immediate and efficient organi- 
zafioij of the Whig party therein; and fer 

with sabres and felled, where he was for 
dead.- The excitement became intense, and 
the Turners were not allowed to cross the 
river. They marched over over to New- 
port. where th^y blockaded themselves in 
the Turners’ Hall. A^ strong guard was 
kept around it all night, and a me-sage was 
sent to the Governor forthe call of United 
States soldiers. Fears arc entertained of a 
serious riot this morning, as the Turneis 
are not going to give their Hal! Up. Can-'

Prof. Wood — Dear Sir: Having made 
trial of your Hair Restorative, it gives me 
pleasure to say, that its effect has been 
excellent in removing inllaination, dandruff 
anil constant tendency to itching, with 
which I liive been troubled from cliild- 
liood, and has also restored hair, which 
was becoming gray, to i.ts original color. I 
liavo used no "tlur article, with anything 
like the sain- ple-asure and profit. 

Yours truly, J.K. BRAGG.

soon give a healthy tone to these organs, how-

.Many of the most despotic Governments have 
opened their Custom Houses to the introduction 
of these Pills, that they muy become the medi-

that thiv rnediclUb is the beat remedy ever known

My daughter has been afflicted witi'i skin dis-

I employed tho principal physicians of I be city, 
and they could not cure her. I gave he.' your

qualities, and that it alone cured her.

fB^HESE C.ASES, now coming into genera 
use, are admitted, by those who have wit 
nesHed their merits, to be auperior to any other 
kind of coffins, for depositing in vaults, or for or- 
uary interments. The advantages they pos- 
es.« are obvious to all. Being enameled inside 
and out, they are impervious to dampners ; and 
the gratification surviving friends have in the re- 
flection that the body is deposited in an imper- 
tsinible ca^e. where all that remains of the de- 
ceased are kept together, without danger ef being 
crushed by tlie weight of earth upon it, as is the 
ease where wood coffin.s are used, would alone 
suffice to recommend them. They {.re also tU'- 
perior to any other coffins for transporting bodies 
for, when properly cemented, they are perfectly 
Air'-Tight, and free from exhalation of offensiv* 
gases. 7'hey cost no more than good wood cof 
fins, are light and portable, of a classic form, are 
highly ornamented, and without the repulsive ap 
pearance of wooden coffins.
