Tbo horse-disease Is revisiting tho vicinity of Hew York. Seventy cases have broken out in Brooklyn, and two of them have proved fatal. President Jones, of tho Massachusetts Labor- Boformors, describes tho Democratic and Repub lican parties in one felicitous phrase, as the party of the past and tho party of spoils. Tho amendment to tho Constitution of Con necticut making Hartford its only Capital has passed the lower branch of tho Stale Legisla ture, and now needs only tbo consent of tho people to make It law. Tho Hon. W. W. O’Brien, of Peoria, a loading Democrat, has published a card stating that ho intends to support Judgo Lawronco, whom ho knows to bo above reproach as a man and a Judgo. His defeat ho thinks would bo a public calamity. Count Manzonl, tho Italian poet and novelist, was buried, yesterday, at Milau. A hundred thousand of his countrymen gathered to pay him thoir last respects, and among the pall-bearers were tho boir-apparont of tho Italian throne and or.-Kiug Amadous. Tbo attempt to got a vote of approval from tho Agricultural Congress for the Morrill bill to distribute the public lands among tho Agricul tural Colleges was a signal failure. Tho intro duction of tho resolutions io that effect pro voked a spirited debate, which ended by laying them on tbo table. According to a Springfield dispatch, ono re sult of our now Railroad law will bo, that Now York capitalists will put uo more money in Illi nois railroads. An attempt to negotiate a loan in Wall street for the Springfield & Illinois Southeastern Railroad has failed, tho bankers stating that thoy distrusted tho effect of the law on tho railroad interests of tho State. Tbo French Army List, which has not boon published for three years, has recently made its reappearance. Tho total number of Generals in tbo army appears to bo 591, while tho wholo number of officers reaches the enormous total of over 22,500, which exceeds tho number in tho Gorman army by over 5,000. Tho body ,of tho French army consists of 120 regiments of tho lino, 4 of zouaves, 3 of Tarcos, 1 foreign legion, and 00 battalions of obaesours. A Gorman-Amorican Central Union was form ed at Bismarck Hall by tbo committees which mot ibeco yesterday. Sixteen wards and a num ber of Qomau societies wore present by tboir representatives. A committee of quo from each ward and society was appointed to draft a platform and arrange tbo plan of a campaign. Tho organization formed yesterday is a Gorman ono, and is meant to bo permanent, but will hold itself ready at any time to join with similar bodies of othor nationalities in a general movement along tho wholo lino. Tho tariff question was brought before tho Agricultural Congress at Indianapolis yesterday, In some of tbo resolutions. Ono of those calls for tho admission of iron free of duty, as it is tho chief material ia railway and steamship building, and tho tax on it is ono groat cause of high transportation charges. Another resolu tion refers to the disastrous effect of tho wool tariff, under which wool-growers, who woro strenuous for its enactment, wore almost ruined, and ask that Congress will bo good enough here after to pass no tariff, protective or otherwise, that will operate unequally. Tho resolutions wore referred to tho appropriate committees. Dr. David J» Deo, formerly a medical officer In .the Sandwich Islands, makes tho startling state ment to tho San l?ranejaoo Chronicle that leprosy wrists in that city. Some years ago ho learned t)f cases of leprosy, but tboy wore kept con cealed. Now, however, they are to ho soon upon tho street. In every instance ho traces It to a Chinese origin. In tho Sandwich Islands it has long boon prevalent, and the Government has with great difficulty kept it from spreading. Ho pronounces It au incurable disease, which can only to kept from Incronsing by aoolndlng thoso aflilotod with it, so that tboy mny not como In oontaotwith well portions. Tho atnlomont of Dr. Loo baa canned groat nnoanlncßb in San Fran cisco. Tho Chicago produce markets wore rather quiet yesterday. Mesa pork waa in fait demand, aud -iOo per brl higher, closing at $10.15(5)10.20 cash, and $10.60 Holier July. Lard was dull and unchanged at 8%0 per lb for whiter, and So for summer rendered. Moats wore quiet and steady at Q%dpQ%o for shoulders ; 8%@8%0 for short ribs; 8%(§)8%o for short clear; and 10fiJ>12o for Hwoot-pioklod bams. Lake freights wore active and easier at >i%o for corn to Buffalo. Hlghwinos wore dull and unchanged at Ole per gallon.

Oats wore in fair demand and steady, closing at 02e cash, and 82#o seller Juno. Bye was quiet and unchanged at CB%o. Barley was inactive and nominally unchanged at 70@ 780 for poor to good No. 2. Hogs wore dull and 100 lower, soiling slowly at $4.8C@d.85. Cattle wore quiet at a reduction of Ko in shipping grades. The last dodge rouortod to by tho friends of Mr. Craig to deceive the public is tho publica tion of a letter from Mr. John B. Colton. Of this gentleman tho following recently appeared in this paper t Mr. John Colton, (ho well-known "medicine man" of Galesburg and vicinity, Is ouo of tho Relive sup porters of Oralg in tho present Judicial contest in the Fifth District. Jfr. Colton's/alher Is, and has been for n long Umo, ouo of tho Directors and largest stock holders in tho Chicago, Burlington it Quincy Railroad. It Ifl perfectly proper for Mr. OoJtou to support Craig if ho chooses, but tho public will glvo him credit ot least for knowing on which side his bread Is buttered. Tho Inference is pretty strong that tho railroad men consider thoir interests safer in tho hands of Oralg than In thoso of Lawrence. To break tho force pf those facts, Mr. Colton baa consented to write a letter in which ho pro fosßOß to support Judge Lawrence as a railroad man. Ho says: I have always been in favor of Judge Lawrence, and, if I live Until the day of election, I shall certainly cast my vote for him, knowing that bo Ib an honest man, a lawyer of tho highest ability, and well fitted to occupy tho position bf Supremo Judge. Ills decis ions, during tho present term, with regard to rail roads, have been entirely satisfactory, and, although I may bo prejudiced in his favor, as I am Interested in the honorable success of railroads, I believe I have tho same right to express my preference for him that others have to express their preference for Judgo Oralg. Personally, I have tho kindest feelings for both candid ates, but, tlko every other citizen, I shall vote for what 1 bellevo to bo for my best Intercuts, and shall not blame (hose opposed to my views for voting for their interest. John B. Colton, Galesburg, May 27,1873. This is altogether “ too thin” to deceive any person who knows John B. Colton or Judgo Lawrence. DUEEIX—GRAHT—CABPEIiTER. The Chicago Tribune denounces President Grant for sustaining Judgo Durok’a decision in favor of flio Kellogg Government In Louisiana. It says, with ref erence to tho Idea that tho Executive must enforce tbo decisions of tho Federal Judges, that “ thoro is no limit to thla species of absurdity, except tbo possible limits of rascality in tbo United States Court,’' The Tribune bold an entirely opposite view some months ago, when bought-up Federal Judges (making & bare majority of the Court) decided in favor of tho swln ’ dling railroad bonds in lowa. It then contended that tho President bad nothing to do but to enforce theso de cisions of tho courts, and it arraigned tho people of lowa as rebels for questioning tho Justice and consti tutionality of tho decisions. It makes a wonderful difference whose ax Is gored! In tho one case tho poor, down-trodden, and oppressed black race is to bo protected. This is not pleasing to The Tribune. 7u tho other case, tho tax-payers of lowa are oppressed to fill the coffers of wealthy and dishonest railroad con tractors, oven though oil constitutional barriers arc broken down, and tbo most sacred obligations vio lated. This makes The Triuune happy.— Muaeatino (/<{.) Journal, ANSWER. Tbo Constitution of ilio United States declares that tbo Jurisdiction of tbo United States Courts shall not Oxtoud to any suit in which a State is a party defendant, or words to that effect. If some person bad sued tbo Stato of lowa in tbo United States District Court, if tbo Judge had taken jurisdiction and given judgment against the State, and ordered tho Marshal to collect it by levy on tho State Tjjgasury, such a case would have boon analogous to tbo action of Judgo Duroll in Now Orleans. Ho took jurisdiction in a caso whoro it was expressly prohibited by tho Constitution. All tbo members of tbo Souato Committee say this, including Morton. If, intbonaso supposed, tbo State Treasurer of lowa should resist the execution, and tbo Marshal should call on tbo President for troops to oxoouto bis process, would tho President bo justified in furnishing them? Is tho Constitu tion binding on him or not? Senator Carpen ter, by way of lotting Grant (or himself) down easy, says it is not. Tbo President must do whatever a District Judge orders, whether it bo to solzo a State-House or to bang a citizen with out jury trial. There is no act so pointedly op posed to tbo prohibitions of tbo Constitution that tho President must not do it if a District Judge, drunk or sober, orders that it bo done. Ono of tho most important orders, by tbo way, issued by Judgo Duroll was made outside of tbo court-room, lu tbo street, without tbo attestation of tbo Clerk, and without tbo seal of tbo Court. What of that ? If tho President is bound to violate tho Cousti tution because a District Judgo tolls him to, tho form of tho order is of tbo slightest consequence. Mr. Carpenter will not go into a court-room and offer his professional opinion that the President is required or even permitted to transgress tho plain language of tho Constitution bocauso somo Judgo has issued an order which be bad no business to issuo. Neither will Mr. Morion. All such nonsense is re served for tho, stump or tho caucus. It is not beyond tho bounds of possibility that ' ono or tho other of them may take a case in be half of some client against Gen. Grant, after his term of office expires, to recover damages for his unconstitutional acta in Louisiana. Tbo law does not protect anybody, In office or out of offico, in civil or military life, for unlawful acts. Iu tbo county-bond coses, to which tbo Musca tine Journal refers, It was never denied that tho United States Court had Jurisdiction, It was contended by thoso who opposed its judgment that tbo Court erred iu not following tho toferi adjudication of tho lowa Supremo Court on tbo subject. The United States Supremo Court, to which an appeal was taken, bold that tbo latest adjudication applicable to thoso particular bonds was the one in force at tbo time tbo bonds woro sold to a confiding pub lie. Put it is aside from tho purpose to arguo tbo law points involved in tho case after tbo jurisdiction was acquired. That tbo Court had jurisdiction—lt being a caso between citizens of different States—there could bo no question. 'What tho Museailuo Journal says about goring tho ox, and about the poor, down-trod don and oppressed black race, has so much the somblanco of blnthor, that wo cloao our reply at this place. , THE FARMERS IN CONVENTION. Tho mooting of tho Notional Agricultural Congress at Indianapolis finds Ua first Impor tance In showing tho strength of tbo farmers* organization!! throughout tho country. Twouty four States nro represented from Vermont to Georgia, and this lUoana that tbo farmers aro whoollng Into lino with tbo purpose of protect ing thoir own Interests in thoir own way. It is significant that tboy aro coming uoaror together by moans of thoir local organizations In tbo North and South, and in tho East and West. Thoir Boctlonal interests ate not always Identi cal, but there seems to bo a good comprehension of tbo fact that thoir gonorol interests arc tho same, and that they aro power ful enough to protect thorn by unity of action. Ninety societies nro reported as represented with ICO delegates in nil; but the most remarkable statement of strength is found In the third annual report of tho Secretary of tho Congress, who says that there aro already 10,000 agricultural associations In tho country, which have an aggregate membership of 400,0,00 farm ers. This estimate evidently includes all tho State, county, aud town organizations, tho clubs, granges, universities, boards, councils, and patrons of industry. Two-thirds of thoso asso ciations, It is announced, have boon organized witbln the past six months, or since tho atten tion of tbo farming community bos boon directed to the special hardships which it is called upon to boar in a bad \yonr. It is fair to presume, therefore, that tho ma jority of thoso societies have boon organized with tho practical purpose of putting down tho abuses that aro responsible for thoir present suf ferings, and therein differ from tbo former as sociations of farmers . organized simply with a view to the advancement of agriculture as a science, and to promote tho local interests of particular sections. In their now form, thoso farmers’ associations have a somi-pohtical char acter, and, although there is no pretense or pro fession of political purpose, they cannot fail to 'oxort a strong influence in tho shaping of future political ovonta of primo importance to the country. Many of tho subjects referred by tho Indian apolia Convention to special committees for dis cussion are of a class interest to tho farmers .alone,—such as motorology and corn crops, hor ticulture and entomology. Others, however, such as tho railway system, the transportation problem, society organization, agricultural col leges, and tbo public lamia, are of general im port, and tbo resolutions of the Indianapolis Congress on those subjects will bo looked for with interest, though they will not necessarily express tbo settled convictions of tbo majority of tho farmers, because of tbo incompleteness ; of tbo representation, tho newness of tbo organ izations, and the lade of instruction to delegates. Tbo question of transportation, for instance, which is tho most important of all un der present consideration, has not boon before tbo farmers long enough for them to understand it fully or suggest an intelligent fcrid practical remedy. From proa out indications, it is not probable that tbo In dianapolis Convention will, give Froo Trade any thing like tbo consideration which its importance demands. This principle is tbo foundation for every adequate remedy of not only the trans portation question, but of all tho other griev ances of which tbo farmers complain. It is probable that, before this fact is fully recognized by tho farmers, tboir .cause will bo harassed by patent remedies suggested in tho interest of po litical parties and demagogues, and their move ment will ho diverted in a variety of directions fovorohlo to everything else except their relief. It is, perhaps,- too early to expect in a conven tion of partial representation that tho op pression of tbo protective system should bo dearly developed and generally understood, but no sido-flghts against railroads and middlo-mon will help them out of their present embarrassments. Until they unite in a common effort to break down tbo system which coerces from thorn tho payment of CO per cent additional upon tho implements they use, tbo clothes they wear, end tho transportation of their grain, ai\d which debars them from com peting on equal terms with tho pauper labor of Europe, their conventions, congresses, and societies will fall short of that practical scope for which their organizations would otherwise bo efficient. Tbo farmers aro stopping half-way when tboir national ignore this great abuse un derlying all their troubles to discuss tho profits of mlddlo-mon. Those, though they may bo ex cessive, furnish at least tbo compensation of con venience and service. Bo tbo railroads, though thoy may bo extortionate iu tboir charges in some caeca, Uavo facilitated tho exchange of com modities, and brought markets to agricultural sections that would otherwise bavo boou shut out from a ealo of tboir productions. Tbo tariff ftlono, created for tbo benefit of monopolists in all linos, offers no compensation, no conven ience, no sorvlco wbatovor to tbo farmers, but only extortion and oppression at every point. It doos not relievo taxation ; It is largely responsi ble for tbo overcharges of tbo railroads ; it rep resents onc-thlrd of tbo cost of every imple ment which tbo farmer uses, and every article of clothing ho and bia family wear; it increases tbo cost of production; it diminishes tbo value of agricultural products by lowering tho exchangeable valuo of all ex ports 5 and it is tho single element of tho Gov ernment which undertakes, to throw tho burden of au iniquity all upon au Innocent class, and bestow Us benefits upon a guilty class. Tbo farmers ato tbo innocent class, which boars tho burdou, and tbo monopolists are tbo guilty class, which derives tbo profit. Neither shares with tho other. How, thou, con any convention of farmers in this country,"whether national or local, overlook tbo part which tho tariff is play ing in thin fight of theirs for eolf-protocUou against monopoly and extortion ? Tho Brndlaugh scheme of Republican govern ment In England baa mot with a decided rebuff from Joint Bright, which is all tho moro sovovo as Bradlaugh and hia aaaooiatoa had counted upon Mr. Bright's support and sympathy. At tho tocoul Republican Convention hold at Bir mingham, of political societies favorable to Re publicanism, for tho purpose of forming a Na tional Republican organization, tho Secretary road a letter from Mr. Bright, who had boon in vited to attend, which closed as follows: “ I have no sympathy with tho object which gives Its namo to your club. I pre fer to try to do good In tho way of political reform by what I regard as a wiser and loss hazardous, it a loss ambitious, method, and, from what wo have scon of tho past, I think wo may gather hopo and faith for tho future." Tho example of tho case with which au oxisUaK mon arcby may bo overthrown and tho difficulty In substituting a stable form of government in its place, baa boon so frequent of Into in Europe, that It la no wonder Mr. Bright thinks tho only way to obtain good govern ment is to commence. reform in the existing government. In hla own worde s 11 It may bo a wine policy to perfect the civil govern ment wo have rather than to look for great changes which necessarily involve enormous risks,” THE ELECTION OF CIRCUIT JUDGES. There aro many circumstances about tbo elec tion of Circuit Judges in. Cook County on Mon day next wblob have combined to oroato a gen eral apathy among tbo people, not in regard to tbo issue, of wblob tboro is but one opinion, but in regard to tbo duty and necessity for voting. lii tbo first place, it seems scarcely to bo under stood that all five of our Circuit Judges are to bo elected, since suoh a construction of tbo Con stitution is comparatively recent. In tbo next place, tboro is a. general impression that, as tboro is only, one tlokot in tbo field, consisting of tbo present Circuit Judges, there is no necessity for polling a largo' vote, and people might just as well stay away from the polls as not. It is of tbo utmost concern that this Impression should bo removed. Tbo importance of tbo present election is pre cisely equivalent to tbo importance of having an bonost and oblo Judiciary. Tbo Judges to bo oloctod next Monday hold their offices six years. It has boon agreed with surprising unanimity among tho press, the political parties, the law yers, and tho people, that tho only safe course to guard against tho danger of incapacity or cor ruption creeping into Judicial position at tho present time, is to ro-oloot tho firo gentlemen,—Messrs. Bogota, Williams, Tree, Booth, and Farwoll,—who ore now tho Circuit Judges. No opposition ticket has, therefore, boon put into tho hold, and but ono man, Sam Ashton, is disposed to contest tho election. Heroin lies tho danger. If tho re spectable people of tho city and county shall re main away from tho polls under tbo conviction that our llvo Judges will certainly bo elected, it is not at all Impossible that Sam Ashton will bo able to drum up enough votes to defeat ono of those candidates, Suppose, for Instance, that tho public apathy, which wo have reasonably ac counted for, shall keep down tho whole vote of tbo county to, say, 500. All that Mr, Ashton will need to do, in that case, is to rally tho bnmmors in a couple of wards to secure enough votes to defeat whichever of the fivo candidates —Williams, Rogers, Troo, Booth, or Farwoll— shall receive tho smallest number of votes. It is not necessary for us to repeat that this would bo a public calamity, from which tbo interests of Chicago and Cook County would bo likely to suffer moro or loss for tbo nest six'’years. All respectable people concede as much. It must bo averted, and the only way to make sure of this is, for .every man to tako tbq time next Monday to go to tbo polls. Tboro will bo no rush, as in Iho case of hotly-contested general elections, and tbo time and trouble will bo insignificant com pared to tbo importance of tho result. It is necessary-to keep in mind that tboro is a real danger that Ham Ashton, who has tho field of bummorism all to himsolf on this occasion, may work up and puli out enough votes to elect him over one of tho candidates, if people gen erally stoy away from tho polls. Suoh a pros pect as ibis should prompt ovory man to cast bis vote next Monday as a moro important, duty than that of voting for President, Governor, Mayor, or at any other election. THE SHOT-GUN AS A JUDICIAL WEAPON. ■ Southern papers bring ua tbo facts concern ing a recent attempt at murder at Atlanta, and the temporary postponement of the job by tbo interference of tbo legal authorities. Tbo At* lauta Herald of May 23 announces that tbo “ community was stirred day before yesterday into vivid excitement by tbo flashing out of a difficulty’’between Alexander Bt. Olalr-Abrnms, editor of that paper, and Col. Oaroy W. Stylos, editor of tbo Albany Hcwa. Tbo difficulty that thus flashed out bad its origin last year. Stylos bad a fight with a man named Nichols at a political convention, and Abrams, who was present, telegraphed on account of it to a paper. This report Stylos denounced in tbo usual Southern language, and Abrams rejoined in equally fiery words. There tbo matter rested until recently, when it became public rumor that Abrams was of part negro blood, and this rumor was traced to Styles. Finally, on tbo 20tb, Abrams was informed of tbo story and of its authorship. His first impulse was to seek Styles, but was persuaded to write, and there upon bo sent tbo following noto : Atlanta, May 20, 1873. Carey IP. Styles: Sm : It has come to my knowledge from a reliable source that you have put in circulation a report that I < hnvo negro blood iu my veins. I dcslro to know whether or not my information Is correct. An Imme diate and unequivocal reply is instantly demanded. 1 am, sir, Avex. Bt. Glaiu Annins. Tbo bearer was Col. Alston, to whom Stylos said: “ You ought not tobavo brought mo this noto. I roQoguizo you as a gentleman. Hr. St. Olair-Abrama I do not, and cannot bold any com munication with him.” To this Alston replied: “If this is your final answer, prepare to dioor to kill Mr. St. Olair-Abrama.” Tbo Herald says that this remark “ excited ” Stylos, and tbo state ment la probably truo. Alston roported to Abrams, who, with groat forbearance, waited half an hour for a written reply. This not coming, "bo proceeded to Heinz’s store, pur chased a double-barreled sbot-gun, bad it loaded for him, and “proceeded with it toward the Kimball House with it (tbo gun) slung by bis side.” On tbo way, bo saw Styles in tbo middle of tbo street, and at ouco put his gun to bis shoulder to firo at him, when the Mayor and a policeman seized and disarmed him, and put him under arrest. Boon after, tho following noto was delivered to Alston: Atlanta, Co., May SO, 1670. Col. H. A . Alaton, Atlanta: The communication handed mo this day by yourself, from Mr. Alex. Bt. Olalr-Abrams, needs this reply. I am not tbo author of any report in relation to Ur. St. Olalr-Abrams* blood, but did say if ho was a sou of a certain fathlly of Abrams of Augusta bo bad negro blood in bis veins. I made inquiry In Augusta a few days ago, and satisfied myself that Mr. Bt. Clair- Abrams is not of the family reported, and have fre quently so stated since, fully acquitting him of tbo Im putation. I make no such charge against Mr. Bt. Cluir-Abrama, Respectfully, your obedient servant, Oauey W. Stylus, Alston rofueod to receive tbo note, insisting that it must bo dirootod to Abrams. Lato at

night, Col. 0. P. Hill presented tbo samo uoto }o Alaton, wltb this postscript i Ficaeo baud tbla nolo to Mr. Abrams as my reply to UU communication, which, 1 (rust, will bo eatlufao tory. O. W« S. Alston received this note so far as to refer Ik to Abrams. Tho latter refused to receive It, In sisting that nothing would be satisfactory but an unequivocal apology. Eulx uoxt mataluK, Atoms, wUg Imd boon OU, lOVti. under guard all night, was taken to the Court lloubo, hla counsel being Maj. HUlyer. The testimony was beard, when tho Court, Judgo Hopbine, according to tho J/ernW, " made aomo of tbo' most beautiful and appropriate remarks wo have over hoard.” The following aro aomo of tbo beautiful remarks of tbo Court: That ho bad carefully cotisldcrod this case nun man and a m/iftJriralo; that tho pence nutat ho preserved at all hazards; that a failure on tho part of tho Mayor and hla officers on Tuesday to do their duty, and in stead of this trial there might have been n trial for killing, and tho remainder of defendant's life embit tered with regret; that ho appreciated tho provoca tion; that whenever a charge was made by tho slander ous tongue of another that his blood was tainted, that tho Imperfection of human naturo,—lf It was on Im perfection,—would, In tho opinion of every man worthy to live, Justify a resort to tho shot-gun; that when tho Imputation of tho want of chastity of a man's mother was added to tho provocation, there aro few men who would not prononneo It an offense that only blood could wipe out; Uut at tbonamo time hla duly was clear, and, knowing tho defendant, ho felt com pelled to bind nim over In a $10,1)00 bond. Whether tbo Court intended to bo understood that tbo " shot-gun," aa distinguished from the rifle or tbo revolver, is the appropriate moans of avenging a Blander of tills kind, is one of tbo questions peculiar to tbo code, and can only bo determined by an export.* Certainly tbo Court intimated that euch on offense could only bo wiped out by blood, which is an extreme reading 'Of tho law of libel to bo doliyorod from tbo Bench. Abrams govo tho bond, his sureties requiring of him a pledge that "inside tho State ho would hoop tho peace until tbo bond expired.” A convention of editors from different ports of tho State, then in Atlanta, decided that it was tho duty of Stylos to address his note of expla nation and reparation directly to Abrams, and accordingly Stylos authorized tbo change of tho address from “ 001. Alston" to Ci Mr. Abrams.” This, however, Abrams re fused, insisting on an original note of apology from Styles. Tho Herald states that public opinion is on tho sido of Abrams, and adds that "tho slander was so terrible and jagged in its anggoationg that Mr. St. Oiair-Abrams was ab solutely stupefied when tho foul report was flashed upon him.” It further gives tbo gene alogy of Mr. Abrams, from which it appears that ho " belongs to a family throughly re spectable in every respect, of puro and good Spanish blood, and for sovoral generations known and esteemed by tbo communities in which they live.” His mother is now living In Kingston, Jamaica. Ho served honorably in tho artillery service of tho Conforate army. From present indications, tboro is a fair prospect that an editor will bo killed in Atlanta. A gentleman writing to us on business from Mason County, 111., says : “ I think tho farmora in this community do not wish tho Judicial elec tions to bo degraded by pledges in tho interest qf any class, and they will pray that tho miser able demagogues who do might ho banished, at least till after election.” To this conclusion not only tho farmers, but all riglit-tuiuded, intelli gent men must coma. A Judiciary got up and elected to order to mako decisions according to programme, would bo an outrago upon tho civilization of tho ago.
