. No one questions that Geo. D. PRENTICE,' of
the.Lenisv il le Journal, is battling' mere brave.
ly and energetically for the Union, and has thus
battled since the fall of Sumter, than any other
man in . Kentucky. And as 'we write a .des
patch*comes in from New York that the friends
of liberty and the Constitution' iti that city are
getting up a, testimonial for him. In a late
number of the Janina?, Mr. PRENTICi thus ad
diessef himself to those.men and presses of the
Republican party who contend that this, war
must. be prosecuted for , the abolition of slavery:
"%yeagree with the Baltimore American that
whin, ultra prints of the North, flattered by
