A gdioits.Offence:
Calling Democratic. traiiors,,or,sympathikers
with:treason, is a serious offence. At the:re
cent terrn.ot,tbe Scott County Circuit poyrt 7
,Clark sued K.imberlin for calling him' ,traitor.
The, facts. Were about 'as follows: . .
In this month of August last Ferris, a De,m—
ocretovas endeavOring to get up, a. subscipt ion
'by the Citizens to aid in making up 4. company
for the Union army. - Clark had
fifty dollars, and he, and Ferris were soliciting
the persona who came into town to put doWn
their names for sueh•amounts as they. could .
spare.. Among . other Ferris approached Kim
berlin, a violent Republican,. who said, he had
.no money. to spars. .gome, conversation 'was
had about loyalty,, when. Terrlisaid the names
on the subscriptionfpaper
,were a pretty 'good
test of loyalty.' ,At this Kimil i griin became
very angry,, and at- this. tirrie Clark atteinpted.
to.spetrk to 'him, but bad only 'said the Wards,.
"Uncle Dan," whenKimberlin . turned to him ,
in 'a very angry manner rind said: • «I want
nothing to do With.yott,you,are a disloyal man
and a traitor to .your country?" Refusing, to
retract, !'lark .sued him fOr the 'slander, and
the suit.resulted in a jedgnient for two hundred'.
and' seventy'dollars damages and costs.•• The
judgment Wes based Upon the verdict of the
Itiry composed of men •of .atl .

How the Vanderbilt was Outwitted
A private letter from the Cape of Good Hope,
published hi the LiverpoorPost, says:
We.are•a little excited with intelligence
from Penang that 'the .Confederate States
steamer'Alabama is cruising ahobt,there. She
took two Yankees
. in the Strait's of Siinda, and
was 'pursued by the Vanderbilt. When night
carne. on -the -Alabama was about twenty
Miduets'ethead, and under cover of. darkness'
shelmshiped - her funncl,.put out her fires, and
setsttil The ship . Was then put about, and stood
irr the direction of where they had last seen the

they had.seen.a large steamer standing' :to the
northwarl. : • ' •
Capt, Semmes replied,f4 Yes; she was going
ahead, NU 'speed, and
. must be 100 miles sway
by, this. . The!,7anderbilt iiiimediately,put on
all Steam, and went'on a wild goose. chase;
while Semn-es quietly - shipped hie 'funnel, 11 04
