FOR StPREME JITOGR.
Hon. George •Sh€irswood,
The noble State of Kentucky remains true
to the teachings of Clay and Crittenden. Her
annual State election was held on Monday,
and resulted in a majority of fully filly-thou
sand-for Mr. Helm, the Democratic candidate
for Governor, with about the same majority
for the balance of the ticket. There were
three tickets in the field—the regular Demo:,
eratie, Independent Democratic, (which made
but a trifling show), and - Radical. In the city
of Lotisville, and the county which it• is
situated, tie DeMocrats carried their entire
Legislative ticket of twelve—an occurrence
never before known in the history of the lo
cality. The State Legislature will be'seven=
eighths Democratic in both its branches. In the
third Congressional District, .3. S. Gailody,,
Democrat, was chosen to fill the vacancy oc
casioned by the suicide of lion. Elijah use,
without opposition. Should Radical:slp (*-
finite to pursuj the same 'perfidious course
that has.characterized it during. the last few
years, the, time is not far distant when the
opposition to the Democratic creed in the
Border States will be goo trifling to he
worthy . ' of dignifying it with the name of
DEATH OP EX.GOV: PORTER.
We are pained to learn of the death of Ex-
Gov. David R. Porter, which took place at
his residence in Harrisburg, on the afternoon
of Monday. He was in his seventy-ninth
.year, and suffered onfy a brief illness. hi ear

regarded as a large majority. It was at the
commencement of his administration that the
fhmons Buckshot War occurred, the incidents
of, which are as firmly impressed upon the
Ads of our older citizens as those of the
_rebellion are upon the youth of this genera
tion. - The wisdom with which hevonducted
the Executive duties, led to his selection for
a second term, and he is acknowledged hi' all
parties to have been one of our purest and,
best Governors. Since his retirement froth
the Chief Magistracy, Gov. Porter has devot
' ed himself mainly to private pursuits, though,
he has ever taken a deep interest in the Na
tional and State polities. He was an ardent
-Democrat throughout his whole life, and
maintained at one period a larger influence
in the party than. any other Pennsylvania
statesman. In his privataxelations, the Ex-
Governor was highly esteemed by all classes.
Though not a brilliant man, ho was possessed
of rare accuracy of judgment, and his mind

IFITANTON-HE WILL NEITHER DIE
. NOR RESIGN.
The frequent rumors with which the
country has been Agitated respecting Stan

length reached a point of some positiveness.
On the forenoon of Monday the following
note was sent to that redoubtable dignitary
by the President :

Secretary of War :

"Here's richness for you." Stanton proba-
Idyls the only man in the United States who
would be willing to hold a place requiring
such intimate relations
, with the President,
after he had been asked to leave it by his,
superior officer. If it had ever been doubt
ed that he was entirely without self respect,
there could be no question on the point any
"The press is full of speculation as to what
will now be the course of the President. 'The
Civil Teribre bill ; cripples his anthOrity so ef
fedtually,Jhat it is doubtful whether he even
. has the power to remove a member of his
Cabinet, except by permission of Congress.
iTt is said that Stanton believes thathe cannot
' be displaced, and intends resisting the attempt
if made. The latest advises say that the
President hesitates its to his right to remove,
but has concluded to suspend the offensive
member until the meeting of Congress. Tho
following is the provhiion of thelaw covering
— AtfOiney General, shall hold their offices re
' ectively during the term of the President
by'whorn_thev have been appointed, and one
mantis thereafter, subject to removal by and
with the advice and consent of the senate."
Whatever may the kin° of the dispute, in
a legal view, there is no mistaking thehet
that in a personal sense, few people will re
gret to see Stanton displaced. !Ds rough
disposition and lack of manly character have
made him equally distasteful to both parties',
and among no elan is the dislike to him
stronger than in the army, many of the offi
cers of which have been subjected to a se
ries of indignities at his hands; which- they
are aching to resent at the first favorable op
immunity. The fear of richly dei - arved pun- -
ishment may have something to do "with his
anxiety to retain the office.
Tim cA3naitorir CANDIDATE.
Last winter, when Simon Cameron was
chosen tnito States Senator, the Dispatch
and Gazette of this city were both lead in
their denunciations alike of the fortunate
candidate and of the means by whielLhe se
cured his election. it was openly charged
that he had bought his way to the Senate,
and maledictions without number were heap ,
ed-upon the hugs of those who had bcculn- ,
strumental in his success. The anti-Cameron
I Radical ; press throughout the State were
equally violent. Tice time had arrived, they
said, when the peophr must take
in their own hands, and prevent their further
control by such men as Cameron and those
he employs to perferm. his service. Thad.
Stevens * wrote a letter - denouncing Cameron
as the vilesrperson in Pennsylvania, accusing
the Legislature of being bribed, and thrtiitt
ening to take the lead in organizing a party
to blow the whole corruptclique who hang
upon the skirts of Lochiel i schieftran into the
lowermost depths of the burning pit. Seyeral
other distinguished Radicals were no_ less
outraged, and we really began to think That
the era was at hand when a new and purer
• condition of affairs would be the orelCr in
our Much abused old Pennsylvania, •
The recollection of these ebullitions cannot
fail to be fresh in the minds of the public. In
view of their violence and apparent sincerity,
the Question is pertinent—" Why is iCtliht all
these people and presses that were so eves
sively indignant at Gen. Cameron, are new
zealously supporting his pet candidate; for
Supreme Judge r" Tim fact is patent to eve
rybody who knows anything of State politics
that the-nomination of Henry W. Williams
was a prat triumph for the Canteronian fac
tion.- The Willkunsphh Coniention was di
vided into two airely contending cliques,
one of whom had sirorn that Cameron
should have no intlueneh in it, if theyp.alit
prevent the same; the other, compared 'of
his adherents, was fully as determined that
he should eoitt#l - 1t 1 ; The Cameron men
put forivard Judge Williams as their favorite
man, mills nomination is soleiyduc to their
efforts intis behidf. lie has, fur a long pe,
riod, tiOn tha intimate frientrof the great
Winnebago, and•there'ir cro special reasons:
undoubtedly why the latter wished him placed
upon the Supreme bench just at this period.
Whatever they may be, no one who knows
anything of Cameron will suppose that the'
model's which lie at the bottom of them hays
a higher object than personal advantage, and
the fact that Williams is one at' Cameron's
right bowers is sufficient to fix his _character
among the people of Pennsylvania., - -- -
Now, why is it, we again ask, that the
"unco.ploire.' sheets which were mice so des
perately hostile to Camekon have soddenly
become the valiant champions of his protege?
Have thet. concluded that Simon is not the bad
man they told us he is, or has he brought to
bear upon them *into of those potential ar
guments which he knows so well hole touset
They. know well enough that if Tirillfams is
elected it will fasten Cameron'a influence still
more 'strongly, and ensure his nnusination by
the State Convention.of next year us Penn
sylvania's Radical candidate . for The Presi
dency. If it be really true, as they said, last
fall, that Cameron is a bad niau, that he must
be crushed and that the people hare been
betrayed, the time is at hand when they have
an opportunity to show their condemnation
of his acts in an explicit manner. Judge
Williams is his representative,and;every vote,
cast for him will be a ballot in favor of Simntt
Cameron, and of the dynasty which he is la
boring to perpetuate. .
The-public will receive with no degree of
surprise 'the intelligence that the infamous
Parson Brownlow has been . re-elected gov
ernor of Tennessee, by a majority estimated
ut from thirty-five to forty.thopsand. Every
indication for the past few months has.point :
ed to this result, and it would have been
amazing beyond' example had the contest
gone differently. From the very opening of
the campaign, Brownlow and his minions .
•have been preparing by fraud, intimidation
and the worst of those mean's which a faction
that has attained power in the modeby which
the RadicalS secured Tennessee, . can always
use, if they desire, to overawe and smother
the honest convictions` of the people. The
election itself - was a mere _form—a sham to
cover up the revointionary tricks of-the con
spiratore anti delude the honest masses of the .
North. The Philadelphia Age truly says, that
"like Napoleon,ivho declared that . all French
men might vote as they pleased, but at the
same time made it a penal offense for any
man to print or write a ticket frt;an which his
name was.rimitted, Brownlow took care that
the machinery of political and military des
potism should work in his favor. The most
outrageous and indefensible coats° of Conduct
was pursued with. reference to the Conserva
tive party. Laws were passed disfranchising
' over fifty thousand of 'tile white men -of 'the
State, while at : the same time - the negroes
were enrolled, Without question as to their
residence or thefact of their having any of
the few qualifications made necessary under
the BroWnlotr dynasty. The election laws
of the State - lave been changed four or five
times within the past three years, and each
change was intended to and did limit the
franchise soar aslthe white Men of the State
were conened. All the laws of Tennessee .
'were passe d under the direct supervision a
Browniow, and carried out by his toobi, and
hence the disfranchisement of white men
who are iu.favor of the Union and the Con
stitution; and the respect•ehown to negroce
who support Browniow and his military des
potism. In addition to this the Conservatives
were prevented from making a full. and com
plete canvass of the State, by bands of rufll- .

ing.Brownlow and his unlawful acts, to as

own homes, and thus terrify the masses and
prevent them from participating in the elec..'
tion. While the white men of the Stale who
have a real and abiding interest in Its pro
gress and welfare were thus stripped of their
political rights, thus disfranchised, insulted
and prevented from instructing the people
upon the real issues of the day and occasion.

WHO I& RESPONSIBLE I
If the Congressional Committee of inquiry
into thatreatment of Union prisoners in the
South do not whitewash off eTtarges except
those directly implicating the Confederate
authorities, the country- may yet he eial
vinced that one reason. Why its soldiers were
starved, and diseased, and subject to the brit=
tality of; the Atidersonville keepers, during
the terrible 'period from August, 1864,' to
January 1885, was Butler's and Stanton's
reason - , which they ought. to be made to
show. General Robert Ould, ex-confeder
ate commissioner for the exchange of prison
ers, alleges that, having first,- - matle an offer
of exchange, man for man, to which he
could get no revolve, he afterwards, early
in August, "offered to delivei all the sick and
Wounded' - prisoners" held in the South,
"without requiring equivalents for them;
at the sante. time urging haste on the part of
the United Stites government, as the mor
tality among the prisoners WEIS very great."
During the Gill he "again and again urged
- haste, giving the same reason." But tran4-
,portation was fibt furnished by the Federal
government until December, when_ three
thousand Confederate - prisoners were taken
to the month of the Savannah River, for
which the Federal government, says 9ener-.
al Otild, - "received thirteen lhousaiul - jn
•tawn: ... TheT would have received more if
there had been accommodation." Now, let
us see whether it is Butler or Ould, in this
instance, wilco is guilty of '!unVeracity."

tested by the sale of over 20,000 comes In a

experience in the little known and interest
ing regions of the far West, furnishes the val
uable material for its contents. The volume
is accompanied by an abeurate and minute
map of the entire region beyond the ;Missis

illustrated with over two hundred engrav
ings from original photographs and sketehea
from theixmciLof Bierstadt, Nast, Hennessy,
Harley, Fenu, Stephens„-,Forbes -and other
eminent artists, which arc really beautiful
and worthy of, exathination.as, specimens of
art. It is a e'redit both to Amerman art and
authorship, and is not only . the most valtMble

the best and niost complete history of the
