On Nov. the Oth, ju.t after the eke
tiou, ldwin Turner, Eiitor of the Reg
ister, a Liberal newspaper at Lexington,
Mbsouri, shot and instantly killed La
fayette Vv Groves, Editor of the Iitd-
lijcnccr, of the same place. The trouble
grew out of the canvass. Oct. 24th the
fieyttter published an ofTeiir-ive personal
. . . . . , i.i
article upon ?dr. U roves, wno Mioruy
after moctiug Turner demauded the au
thor. On Turner avowing himself to
bethemau, (rroves called him a dirty,
cowardly dog. The luUtiiycicer, (Mr.
Groves' paper), gives the fuiiotfing ac
count of the allray :
"Groves was walking leisurely, and
stepped now and then to pass a word
.. ... i it-
with a IriciiJ. lie nau 'aisea i ou:g s
depot, above the City hotel, and
opposite the grocery store of l!
Ei-ter fc Co., when lut nor steppe J
from a doorway in his rear with a diawn
i istol, calling out to Air-j roves, 'you
eaikd me a dirty , t ike your hand
oil that pistol, and immediately hred.
Mr. O oves had both hands in Ins
breeches pockets at the time (the man
ner in which he r.sual walked), with a
bundle of clothes under his right si m.
Upon being accosted by lurner, he
turned partially aiouud just as the first
shot was Gred. There is some difference
of opinion as to whether the first was
the fatal shot, or not. e judge, how
ever, that it did not strike him, simply
pas.-ing through his coat sleeve. Imme
diately after the first shot, Mr. Groves
iiirned square around lacing lurner,
who fired at the very instant of his tum
ble, dropped his pistol and iau baei;
through I'ou.'ig's store up into his oilice
bv a back way. Mr Groves stood slul
a second, staggered slowly.. back off the
pavement, with both hands yet iu his
pockets and tell down in the street, the
ball having passed through the upper
part of his heart. Mi. Groves was not
heard to utter a sitigle word, and died
witcout making a sigh."
''Thus iu tlie Hush and pride of ruau
hood has been cut off, without a mo
ment's warning, aud with no opportuni
ty to defend himself, one of the most
genial hearted and whole-souIJ gentle
men whom it has ever been our lot to
associat : with. A gentleman by instinct,
training and education, he could not have
conceived the baseness of such an attack,
and was therefore unprepared for it.
That be had a profound contempt for
Turnejp"ould be but natural, but he had
no mis'givings of being waylaid and as
gassinated even by him, for he had spo
ken but a few hours betbro of the great
relief the close of the campaign had
brought to all parties interested in it ;
that lie was ready to forget every offen
sive thing that had been said in the boat
of the canvass against him, and did pet
wish to triumph over a beaten party in
' The Hcyislcr, Turner's paper by the
pen of his partner, we judge says:
"The difficulty was entirely personal
in its nature, in which no other person
were involved. They were both men of
character and standing- Mr. Turner was
raised in the city, and from boyhood has
been noted for bis quiet, orderly, exem
plary character. Mr Groves ha lived
in the county for many years, and like
Mr. Turner had maintained an unsullied
character. They were both in the prime
of manhood, with great promise of fu
ture u.-cfiihiess, which adds to the sadness

doubt that the cost of railroad caniaire
is much greater than it need be. At
the late session of the National board of
trade, an interesting pupcr on railroad
lreights was read by 31 r. Ii. 11. i urgu
son ot 1 roy, winch deserves a more en
era! attention than it has hitherto at
tracted. Mr. Furgusou stales that for
the last five' years the average charge
lor carrying a bushel of cram, f;ti pounds.
irom Chicago to New loiiv has been ol
14- 5 cpnl. :i!nl from .St. I.mii-i tn S'mv
york. 37 1-1 cents. Of course the co.t
of bringing the grain from interior poitu
t.inengo and liOtus is to be added
to these rates, and when added it makes
the whole cot of getting a bu-hel of
grain irom an Iowa or Missouri farm to
New York, 54 1-2 to CO cents a bu.-hel.
This cost has to be deducted from the
j 'ilea of grain in
:w York, and the
little that is left is what the farmer gets
for his labor and trouble. Mr. Fercu-
tca produces etimates and authoritative
testimony, including statement from a
prominent officer in the Iron Mountain
railroad of Missouri, the president of the
irmma Central railroad, aud the super
intendent of ihe Schenectady Locmo-
tivc works to show that a ton (40 bu-h
lis oi gram at o( pounds per bushel,)
can be hauled 1,000 mile. at an actual
e'Gst of 03 1-3 or a little over six
cents a bushel ; and this estimate in
cludes all cost of time, labor, interest on
the eo.-t ot the road and euuinments.
It is based upon the present crude and
expensive method of running railroads,
and it is taid that with a more econom
ical system of railroad management the
figures could be reduced one half, or to
ol 3 a ton. A hen it is recollected
that the present railway charge of haul
ing a ton ot grain from Chicago to New

indeed, they have not become, without
our knowing it, too strong for the gov-
ctnment itself. To release the produc-
crs of the West from the thraldom of
J"" rpoiaimi s, u.e government win
have to provide tue W.stwnh cheaper
lJlL.tho(i, of carriage to the s.i. This
luitrht be done bv constructing several
multiple track roads from t lie Eit to
the West say from New Y. ik, !hi-
more ana -onoK to ihieasro, jouis
and Memphis, and throw them-open to
all transportation companies that might
be a. le to run cars up n ihem, the gov
ernment charging nothiuir more than
baiely enough to keep the lines in re
pair. Another enterprise that would fa
cilitate and cheapen carriage between
the West and the seaboard is the con
struction of the James river and Kan
awha canal, so as to a fibril unbroken
water transit from the Mississippi and
Ohio to Norfolk. Professor Maury de
clared in his uddress at the late St. Lou
is Fair that this canal, if built, would
givej'ree navigation from the Mississippi
to the Atlantic for 350 days in the year,
and reduce the cost of carriage of grain
from 7 to 50 cents a bushel, according to
the point it started from. If this asser
tion b ? true, then, great as would be the
cost of such a i-anal, the saving in ex
pense to the West on a grain trade of
two hundred millions would in a few
years p.iy for it- The whole subject
will probably come up btforc comrress at
its next ses.-ion, and be urged on its at
tention until home measure ot relief
