General Paul Vandervoobt says
he wan removed without cause; that
no notice or investigation was bad ;
that the rotmaster.Gneral was im
posed upon, and that he (Vandervoort)
will be satisfied with nothiag short of
reinstatement. If General Vaader-
oort was removed without cause, as
those who know him best and know of
his administration believe, his many
friends throughout the State will en
dorse bis stand, "to be satisfied" with
nothing short of reinstatement,
Said ex Governor Luke Blackburn,
of Kentucky in an interview the other

"the south, a disposition to see the

This i the geni'eman who exhibited
his murderous treason during the war,
by. attempting to scatter small pox
throughout the northern cities and the
Union arm 'j during the late wtr. He
is a representative man in Kentucky,
having just vacated the gubernatorial
chair io t. tat state in favor of Proctor
Knott ; however we believe this fiend
does n- t represent the better portion of
society io the south although there is no
doubt but he speaks his own tmo feel

Newell's claims for renominatiou be

friends of the paper, who we also con
sidered competent, honest men, candi

to carefully refrain from espousing the
personal claims of anyone. This an
nouncement is made in naswer to tbe
repeated enquiries of friends of the dif

There is euough telegraph wire

that no new lines will be built or be

the discharged operators who have
been efficient enough to recover their
foimer places, may seem not to have
just this same old greedy basis, to that
complexion it must come if it progress-

mail is at the bottom of every "compe

the Postal Telegraph Company, which
has noVfl methods and equipments
Every year that passes makes it
-eein more probable that the solution
of the problem will be found at last in
tue establishment of a general tele
graphic service in connection with the
Post Office wholly under Federal con
trol. The evils predicted of such an

The average price of messages taken
by tne Western Union - is forty-four
