blowing out what little brains they had
in severe invectives, ciaudou, abuses
and villainous slanders against the ben
encient Lrovernment, at whoso paps
they were then beine nourished and
protected ; and our magnanimous Gov
ernment Laincr neceitated from the
exigency of the case, and that tbe al

with its withering and blighting effect? ,
was compelled to siretch forth her
strong and powerful arm and place a
muzzle upon the liitle, filthy mouths of
these contemptible little organ grinders
and treason, .ballows-blowers, and thus
slop their, infamous noise; and this
caused them and their votaries to stand
abashed and horror-stricken over the
thought that the liberty of the press had
been abridged, in that they were net
permitted to talk and act against their
Government in its hour of peril aod
its imminent danger. Now, since peace

nin and a consummate liar. . This is
ie prsps lliiii prginy
in intellect presumes to use. A free
dom the skulking coward would not
have the back-bone to use through any
other medium.' Listen at this lubberly,
over grown boy's bellowings after his
sound thrashing by Gov. Butler. He
"Harwell Spurlock did not slop at
disfranchisiag the peepla of Hock
Bluffs, but sent up a false and fraudu
lent report ou Slate." ;
Now, that is alie, and Morton knows
it ; yet he gives it publicity with as
much assurance as Judas showed when
- . -i . ,
he betrayed his Lord and Matter with
a kiss. Hear him again :
"Burwell Spurlock knows that Cass
county gae a majority against state
of,325, or there-abouts." .
This 325 statement staggered the
gentleman, and probably for the first
time, too, rn his little inglorious career,
upon the statement of what' he '.knew
to be false there-abouU he says ; and
this is just as near the truth as he can
get there-abouts. ;Again he says: '
, "Burwell Spurlock should be prose-:
cuted for his villainies in his office. i
The next Grand Jury of Cass county
should take his case under advisement."
' After this grare advice : to his way
ward Cass county students, he gives,
one more blast on this little copper toot
hcro and says something about "hypo
crite," 'fool;' deal "knave" forming a
trinity'. WellVl presume this is about
as correct on idea tf the .trinity as be

known to the" citizens of Cass county
in his connection, at early day, with
ihe Morton Cass County College ; an
Institution that Mr. Morton labored
very arduously to .establish, that tbe
dear voters Cass county might be
educated to his liking. But, poor Mor
ton'sCollege isnonest henct, the cause
a of his frequent excursions up Salt river.
Every time Morton starts on a voyage
it makes no difference, in what direc

where rest and quiet are taken' until
nil the little brass horns of the frater
nity give one grand concerted blast to
make ready for another voyage.
Is Morton a fool? -1 'guess not,

not, as he has a certificate which be
carries to prove' his loyalty. " '

Is Morton. deceitful? No; because
he is notorious for his false statements,
and never corrects them by telling the
Is Morion an idiot?. . No, no; what.

Now the reason of this bellowing of
Morton is quite cbvious. He, like Billy

unlike Billy, too, as to the manner in
which he was struck- he, Morton, hdviJ

with him is, Vw-fao fftin'. fike me ?''
No wonder this little ox stands to one

united in a settlement of European
attoirs, including Austria, France, Eng
land, Russia, Prussia, Spain, Portu
gal and Sweden. Coming almost im

Holland, having ceded her German
possessions, was consoled with the Bel
gic provinces and became a kingdom,
and Switzerland remains much as be
fore. In the same, year, 1815, political
Pharisaism accomplished .its master
piecs, ihe "Holy Alliance" between
Austria, Russia and Prtftsia, by which
they bound themselves to act for the
future on Christian principles only, and
immediately proceeded to enforce the
absolute supremacy of kings as the one
great . principle ef Christianity. All
Europa acquieiced in the announce
ment, with three notable exceptions
ihe Sultan, whose opionion was not
osk?d, and England and the Pope, who
both declined ts havs anything to do
with the imposture. ,
Tlie Prisoners of tlie Dry Tor
i . . tugas. .
A person named .William While, of
Henrico, Virginia, .recently, released
by pardon from the Dry 'Tortngas,
wh8re he had been sent" under convic
tion of being a rebel spy, during the
war, lias arrived in Memphis. The
Memphis Appeal says :
Mr. White was for a time room
mate of Mr. Mudd, who was sentenced
to hard labor for life in the Dry Tot
tugas for alleged aiding in -Wilkes
Booth's escape after the murder of
Mr. Lincoln. The Doctor's health is
rapidly failing, and Mr. White believes
he will not live through the summer.
Spanjler and Arnold are quite well,
and even their confinement does - uot
seem very seriously to affect their gen
eral physical or mental well, being.
The State prisoners are compelled to
rise nt 5 a.m.; after breakfast, at-7,
go out to work, are employed ia cutting
and carrying stone to build the fort un
til 12 o'clock, when one hour's inter
mission is allowed, the work being re
sumed at 1 p. m , and continued until
5 o'elock. ' On rainy days no work is
required. The same ration issued to
the United States soldiers is distributed
to the prisoners, and, though coarse, is
abundant and wholesome in quality.
He represents the Island as sterile and
depressing in appearance, but as cooled
by refreshing sea breezes, snJ the con
densed water used is palatable
healthy. He further says a marked
improvement in the treatment of the
prisoners, has been instituted by the
officers of the Tenth United Slates
regular infaniry, who relieved 'the
former carrison of necro soldiers.
When the news cf the fall of Richmond
arrived, an issue of whiskey to "a
hands" was made in honor of the event
and the prisoners were liberally inclu
ded, but, though many of them had
been for a lone time deprived of the
luxury; five of ihe number, including
Mr. W., refused to touch it, or enjoy
the holiday also granted to all the Is-
and, in celebration of such a signal
triumph of the Union arms. The pns

...'.rTIIE TWO VOICES. .
When Guttenburg, the first printer,
was working in his cell in the monaster!
of. St. Aborsgot,- he tells that, he heard
two voices address him.' . The one badr
hira desisi told him the power his In
vention would put in the. hands of bad
men to. propagate. ..their wickedness;
told him how men, would profane the
art he had created, and how posterity
would have cause to curse the man who
gave it to . tne, world, bo impressed
was Ciottenburg with what he heard,
that he took a. hammer, and broke to
pieceii the types he had so laborously
put tcgether., His work of destruction
was enly staid by another voice, sweet
and musical, that fell on his earvitlliug
,hitn.jA-ffo. -cs. . ana io rejoice in bis
work; lhat all good might be made
the cause of evil, but that God would
bless the right to the end. So
io all of us still come those voices lhat
came to Guitenburg ; the one call us
io work, while is it called to day to try
to leave this world better than we found
it; and the other tempting us to give
over and take our ease to leave the
plow in mid-furrow, and to rest our
oars when we should be pulling against
ihe stream. ; . ,
E1" Concerning the President's
contemplated trip to tbe Northwest, the
Chicago TViownesays: "We shall re
joice at the President's visit to us, and
shall admire the propriety and dignity
of the act as an appropriate expression,
through its Chief Magistrate, of the
Nation's respect for the memory of
Douglati. But w beg the President
not to mix with funeral honors to Doug
las a purely political job for himself or
for Docliiile. It has been generally
slated that the Presidential party, after
laying the corner none of the Douglas
monument, will continue on an elec
tioneering tour to save Doolittle from
the wrath of ihe Wisconsin, and to

IIST The Zanesville Courier relates
this anecdote of Sherman :
In conversation with a number of
officers at his headquarters in the fall
of 18S4, the Presidential election was
touched upon, when some of the num
ber addressed Gen. Sherman with:
."General, who will you vote for ?''
. - "I shall vote for neither."
VNot vote! That is very strange."
"I'll tell you why," replied the Gen
eral; "I never voted but onee, and then
I disfranchised myself"
Such looks of wonder and incredu
lity as this produced may be imagined,
but the General, paying no attsntion,
thereto, proceeded : ..m
"I never voted for a President but
once in my life; and that was for Bu
chanan, and I am since satisfied that
any person who was d d fool enough
to do that, has not sense enough to ex
ercise the elective franchise. I dis
franchised any self, and consequently
ah all not vote.
