many scalps taken. The Era man
says, that iu ten precincts I did not

true, but where I waged this war I
find I received as many votes as
either of the candidates in the field,
who ran for the same office. While
my friends, I think, will be satisfied
with the vote, I am confident had I
not been so shamclully bulldozed
out of the nomination at the hands
of tho Democratic convention, I

meeting were read and approved.
The object of the meeting was stated
b'y the Vice President, and the gen
eral affairs of the society were dis
cussed. A committee was appoint
ed to present the claims of the
society to the Co. Commissioners at
their next meeting, for the funds
allowed by law to agricultural so
cieties organized in pursuance of
the statutes. As to the suit of Jos.
Gross against the society, it was
ordered that the Vice President be
authorized to employ N. Millett as
attorney, aud take an appeal.

Mr. Hensley thereupon begins a
tirade upon Mr. Moody and also
upon Mr. Wise, Co. Commissioner
elect, who seems to have no connec

Era calls Mr. Moody "an itinerant
pedagogue of inferior calibre," and
likewise "a self-acknowledged fool."
