''Our prosctice uiij odlciiil duties at
Washington havo ennblod us to be
come nciiininlcd wilh the noiion and
designs of Uione who control llio Kuili
ciil pitrly, and wo foci called upon to
titter a low wonln of warning ttyainul
tho tilui'initi Ktridua they havo made
towards centralization of power in the
hand.1 of (.'onirroiM and tlio Executive.
Tlio time nnd intention of tlio Iladical
leaders lias been uliuoHt whully direct
ed to do vino Mich legislation as will,
in their view, bout preserve their
osrendc'iey, and no repaid lor the
wise resliaints imoosed by the Con
stilulion lias cliti l;ud ibuir restless
und deaperato career. Tlio I'restdvnl
of tlio United Stales lins boon fuftniil
ly announocd as a catididale for re dec
tiuil. 'J lie tlet'luraliona of
Biipportei-a havo been ei lined by a sub
aidized .ress, und a ilist iplino of parly
has already made udhcHon to liis per
sonal fiirluno the supremo test of po
litieul fealty. The pnrtisan leerislu
tion, lo whieh wo refer, wus tlut rced
und tihnpcd in secret caucus, where Ilia
extremist counsels always dominuto,
utid was adopted by n subscrvienl ma
jority, if not with llio intent, certain
ly with tlio cflcct to place in the bunds
of llio President power lo command
his own nomination, nnd lo employ
the army, navy nnd itiililia at his sole
discretion, ns a means ol auhservin
bis personal ambilion. When llio sad
experience of llio last Iwo years, so
diaappointing to llio hopes and ejencr-
al coiilideiicu ol llio commit, is con
sidered in connec'.ion wilh the violent
utterances and rash purposes ol thoso
who control the lYccidcnt's policy, il
is not t-tirprisiiir t lint llio gravesl up
prehensions for Ibo I ill it re peace of
llio nation should be cnlortiiined. At
a timo when labor is depressed, and
every material interest is palsied ly
oppressive taxation, the ptit iie outers
lave been mulliplietl licyonu all pre
cedent to servo ut instruments in the
perpeliiitlion of powor. Partisanship
is llio only Icsl applied lo llio distri
bution ol this val patronage. Hon
esty, fitness and moral worth are
openly discarded ill favor of truck
ling euumiHxion a n J uisiionerauie com
plianco. Ileneo enormous defalca
tions and wide pprt'U'l t in ru in ion have
lolloucd as the natural consequences
ol I Ii is pernicious synlom. lly llio ol
fieial report ol the necrelny til the
Treasury, it utpears that ufler dedtie-
lion ol all proper credits, ninny mil
lions of dollars remain duo from ex
collectors of internal revenue, ui.d
ihitt no proper diligence has over been
used to collect them. Iteforma in the1
revenue and postal system, whit It ull
experience deiuonstrutes to bo lieccs
sary to a frugal udminislrulion of tlio
k'ovci anient, us well us a measure of
relief to on over burdened people,
havo been persistently postponed or
at t I'll t ! V ne"lecled. Congress now ad
journs without having oven ullettipled
lo redtico taxation, or lo repeal the
rjlurtlio; impositions by which industry
is crushed und impoverished. The
treasury is overflow ii and an excess
ol ' gHIJ.imO.OOU ol'reveiiuo is admitted,
and yet instead of some meastiro of
present relief burren und tltdnsiytj
resolution is pused by the Setialo to
consider llio tariff and exciso systems
heicnl'tor, us if the history of broken
pledges and prutended remedies I'm'-

Our tigrieiilliirists, while) inyin
heavy taxes on ull I hey coiimiiiiiv ithcr
lo the eroveriimcnt or to monopolists,
(tin llio prices for their own products
so reduced llial hone! labor is denied
its reward, and industry ia prostrated
by invidious iliscriniiinition. Nearly
200.01)0,01)0 acres of publiu lands
which should have been preserved for!
the benefit of Ihe people, have been
voted awaj to great Corporal ions,
noglecling our soldiers, and enriching
a handful of treedy speculators and
lobbyists, who Hie thereby enabled lo
exorcise a mosl dangerous nnd cor
rupting lufluoiice over Stale and Fed
oral legislation. If tho career ol these
conspirator bo not checked the down
full of free government is inevitable,
nnd with il tho elevation of a military
dictator on tho ruin of tho republic.
Under pretense ol passing law to
cnlorco the fourteenth amendment anu.
fur other purposes, Congress bus con
ferred the most dpct:u power upon
tho Kxeculive, anl pruvided an ollicinl
machinery by which tho liberties

interpreters lo the fourteenth amend

eminent Sonator Mr. Trumbull of

Nothing Is left to tbo cilinon nr State i
which can any tonercr be called a rlnt.
All is changed into mcro sufferance.'
Our hopes lor reilroso aro in the calm
good sense, and the sober second
thought of the American people We
call upon lliem to bo true lo them
selves and their posterity, and disre
garding party names and minor dif-j
lerences, to insist upon a decentraliza
tion of power, una tho restitution of
federal authority within ilsjiistand
proper limits, leaving to llio Stales j
that control over domestic affairs
w hich is essonlial to their happiness
and tranquility and gooff government.
I'.very thing Hint malicious ingenuity
could suggest has buen dona to irritate
the people ol the Middle and Southern
States. Cross nnd exaggerated churg
es of disorder and violence owe their
origin lo tho mischievous minds of
Jwiliiical managers in tbo Sonute and
louse of Jtepresonlulivcs, to which
the Execulivo bus, wo regret to say,
lent his aid and Uius helped lo inflame
llio popular feeling. In ull this Course
of hostile legislation nnd harsh resent
ment, no word of conciliation, of kind
encouragement, or fraternal fellow
ship, has ever been spoken by the
President or by Congress to the poo
plo of tho Southern States. They
havo been addressed only in the lan
guage of proscription Wo earnestly
onlreat our fellow-citizens iu ull parts
of tho Union to eiiaro no effort to
tii ui n In i ii pcuco and order, to carefully
protect the rights of every cilizen, to
preserve kindly relations among all
men, und to discountenance mid dis
courage any violation of the rights of
any portiun of the people secured
under tho Cunsiilulion, or any ol its
amendments. Lei us, in com lu-ion,
earnestly beg of you no, lo aid the
present utleinpl of Jtadicul urlisans
lo slir up htriio in the luud, lo rorew
the issues of tlio war, lo obstruct the
return of peace and prosperity to the
Southern Klutes, becuuee il is thus
that they seek to divert tho attention
of the country from the con option and
OXlraVagaiiea ill lbir nitmtniitriti
of publ'0 affairs, und the dangerous
und profligate attempts they aro ma
king towards tho re election of a cen
trali.ed military government. lathe
live years of peace following the war
the Radical administrations have cx
ponded 1,200,00(1,000 on ordinary
purposes ulonc, being within $200,000,.
000 of the aggregate amount spent for
tho sumo purposes in war unci in peace
during the seventy one yearn pieced-
in!; Juno uO, lMil, not inclinling in
cillier case ihe sum paid upon princi
pal or interest ol public uebL It is
trilling with tho intelligence of the
people for the lt.idieal leaders lo pro
lend that litis vast sum has been hon
estly expended. Hundreds of millions
of il have been wantonly squandered,
Tbo cxpoiidtlurcnof the government
for tho fiscal year ending Juno SO,

fur precisely tho same purposes, civil
list, urtny, navy, pensions and Indians,
(Jlli4,0liU,000 were expended during
the tlseal year ending Juno 30, 1S70.
No indignation can bo too stern and
no scorn too sevens lor tho assertions
by unscrupulous Kadical leaders that
tho great Democratic nnd Conservu
live parly of tho Union I as or can
hav sympathy with disorders or vio
lence in any purt of llio country, or in
the deprivation of uny man of his
rights under llio Constitution. It is
lo protect und perpelualo the rights

There is no record of Cain's court
ship or wedding. However interest
ing lo tlio purties themselves, it is of
no interest lo us, except upon the
supposition that tho account in Gene
sis of tho creation of Adam was de
signed to exclude the supposition that
nny other pcoplo bad been created
If Adam and Kve wero the sole pro
genitors of the race, then Cain and
Abel, il is i. ferred must have married
their own sisters a connection which
is shockirg lo the sensibilities of Ihe
wholo rnco ut n subsequent stage, of
lint many of tho fathers of tho
church denied that Adam and Eve,
and their children were tbo only peo
ple on the gloho. They ullirnied that
iho text in Uencsis very plainly im
plies that the earth wus ulrei.dy wide
ly populated ; for, when God declared
that Cain should bo driven out from
his family and made a vagabond on
the enrtb, Cain deprecated tho sen
tence and pleaded "that every one
that findelh mo shall" slay me." It
was plainly not bis family connections
llint be feared, for ho desired not to be
driven out from them. It was the
people that ho should meet when a
wanderer on llio earth. Who, then
wero tho people w hom Cain feared lo
meet when lie shotilJ nuvo gone lorlli
into tho earth I
It is also reasoned by Scholars thut
Ihe most naturiil method of soothing
his fears, would havo been lo tell him,
"Thero nro no other people on thu
enrlli, except your father's children."
Instciid of that tho Lord is represen
ted ns falling in wild Cain's i?n;rcs-
sion respecting the population of the
world, that lie "set a murk upon
Cuin, lest uny Uniting him should slay
him," ((icn. i: Hull further, it
is said that Cuin, separating himself
tmm bis kindred, went to the land ol
rs nil, cast of hdom, "und built a city,
and called llio name of tho city after
tho name of bis son Knm h." Tlio
fiilhcrs very pertinently nsked : where

.' I
in lliis city ?
That would lie an extraordinary
state of things which woulJ have en
abled Cain lo fill up a city, however
small, wirli hi, own children ! And
it is inferred, therefore, that there
were oilier people in the land besides
Iho immediate posterity of Adam.
If Adam wus the progenitor , Cuin
musl have married his sister. If there
wero oilier lilies of people, other
Adams, us it were, then Cain must
have married into another slock.
We do not express uny judgment in
tho matter. Wo give ottr correspond

in the early days of the church, with
Ihe additional still cinent, thut utmost

A Bold Assassination.
Dark and bloody wus the deed ! A
feeling of horror thrilled through tho
bourts of the muny witocsses who
stood by and saw a young and happy
bridegroom shot down, und without
uny apparent cause, by the bund of
tbe sneaking assassin. A merry and
joyous company bud assembled last
evening in the parlor ol the St. Nich
olas Hotel to do honor lo the union ol
two loving hearts the marriage, ol
Mr. J. C. Foster, lute of Bowling
Green, Ky., lo Miss Hose IJird, of this
city. Kuther Donnelly bad just per
formed tbo marriage ceremony. Tbe
bride was in the parlor ut tended by a
bovy of beauties und merry young
maidens. The proud bridegroom hud
but just passed oat to tbe saloon to
receive tho pledges nnd congratula
tions of bis friends, when there en '
torodan uninvited guest, a Mr. Thomas
Smith, of Independence, who at once
accosted Foster. Very few words
passed between them. A bystander
overheard the following conversation,
the meaning whereof is still shrouded
in mystery. Foster was standing at
the corner of the bar when Smith said,
"Voti do not mean it." "I do."
Then prepare yourself." A I the
sumo time ho produced a navy revol
ver and fired into Foster. Turnini;
around, without a word of explana
tion, the assassin walked out of the
saloon, putting up bis pistol as lie
walked couly across the street past
the court house. Turning between
the Market Ilouso and the court house
he mounted his horse and fled out into
tho darkness of the night, unmolested,
uiipurstied. Tho bridegroom stagger
ed back Hark us he received Ihe shot,
und fell upon a window bench. Modi
cul attendanco was soon upon the
sccno, and the wounded man curried
up stairs, ilis cries were continuous.
11 is only excluinanutions being : "Tom
Smith, why did you murder mo?"
"Uli, why huvo you shot mo down
upon Ibis my wedding?" "1 who
wus your best friend and lovod you !
Ob, Tain, why buve you murdered
mo?" A hasty examination of the
wound by Drs. Milligan, Tuylor, and
oilier surgeons whoso names wo were
unublc lo learn, showed thut the bullet
hud passed through the right hand
noil bud filtered llin abdoineu near the
liroiu, und had glanced obliquely down
winds, lodging iihoul three inches from
where it hud entered. The opinion of
the surgeons was Hint the wound was
dangerous, but not necessarily fatal.
The scene in the parlor was beyond
description, i lie tuir and elegantly
attired bride, stricken down in her
grief und honor, was surrounded by
lur bridesmaids und relatives. Here
and there were fair girla lying pros
trutc and insensible from fright. Sobs
und whispers were Ihe only sounds to
be beard. All was sadness and grief
where joy und glee had reigned
supreme not twenty minutes beloro.
Tom Kniiili is now under indictment
for robbing Slone Si Thornton's Hunk
in lli", on information luruinlicd by
Jim Crow Child. Smith has been a
refugee from justice, iu Cunndii, for
about two years, having but recently
turned lo his home ut Independence.

shrieked for freedom with great effect.
Ho was always rssdy to give ono
other and -further shriek for freedom,
be the same more or less. Shrieking
was a good stock in trude, and in time
he made it valualjlo. There fell, once
upon a timo, a great famine upon tic
laud in which the freedom hrickcr
lived, and the hearts of far off tnea
were moved to compassion, and a great
store of provisions was sent to the
starving people. For their butter dis

pious politician, was selected as ngent
Among other stores thero wns a great
quantity of beans. Now your beans
is not only a wholesome vegetable,
but in New England il is extremely
popular. Bukod pork and beans is
llio national dish. On Sunday the
parsons count Ihoir congregation by
the bushels of boans they address.
Now, when the beans arrived, there
was a great demand for lliem from Ihe
hungry Yankees. But your pious
agent instead of giving them out lo
Ihe poor starving people, did put
lliem in store, und sold them for
eah ; and, as the vegetable cost hi in
nothing, great profits did accrue.
Tlio fact, however, reached thokuowl
edge of the people, and great was
their indignation so great, Indeed,
thut ordinary profanity would not do
the subject justice, und great shoot
of "beans" went up, that yet continues
in certain parts, when the bowels of
the Yankee are moved to wrath at
the loss of his vegetable production.
With money, however, one ean elo
