Yielding to the ncre from 75 to 100 bushels of excellunt grain,it is equal in very respect to our Indian com and from two to three tons of nutritious fodder.

Several ladies were passing under it at the time, who saved themselves by running, though a colored woman was caught, knocked down and pretty badly bruised up, but for.tunately escaped without serious injury. There is an ordinance against allowing such structures to be built upon the streets, but the Council has of late permitted it to be disregarded.

James, formerly of this city, died Wednesday afternoon, at his home near Yarnalton, Fayette county, with consumption, in the 07th year of his nge. The deceased had been Attorney General of the State, Secretary of State, and President of the Farmers Bank in this city. He was born and raised in Pulaski county, but removed to this city in 1850, where he practiced hie profession until two years ago, when he purchased a farm in Fayette county and removed to it to reside. He was n high toned, honorable gentle man, who had the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He made it a rule during life never to owe any man a cent, paying cash for everything he bought. He leaves a,wife and six children to mourn his loss, two of his daughters having preceded him to the tomb four or five years, ago, of the same dread disease which carried him off. The remains were brought to this city yesterday afternoon and interred at the ceme. tery. Thieves again visited the resilience of Mr. John Branch, two miles from this city, on the Louisville pike, Tuesday night, broke open his meat house ami carried off about a hundred pounds of hams. On Wednesday night they visited the residence of his son, Mr. Butler Branch, a short distance away, nnd attempted to get into the house, but in raising a window they awakened Mr. Branch, whogot up to see what the noise wns about, when they ran off.

Thus it will be seen that the efficiency of Gaines is second to none, and he had evii.ced an intention to make a settlement in full by the first of May, by handbills calling on the to settle up by April 15; but he was de prived of the little recommendation that the quietus from the Auditor would have given him in the pending contest, lor the ink was scarcely dry on his hand-bill- s when the Democratic Committee, that bulwark of liberty (?), met and fixed the 14th ol Apii', as the day of judgment for John W. Gaines. The action o'f this Coininiitee in fixing tiic election for sheriff on a day different from the day for the selection of delegates to the State Convention not only works an injustice to John W. Gnines but reminds the lovers of purity inmorals ol the degrading tendencies ol frequent popular elections, and impresses the mind indelibly with the belief thnt the committee no longer regards the best interests of the party, but moves in a circle peculiar to Vox Pot'UM. itself. s Cho::p:ak s ml rrR io I Eatey, KENTUCKY'S ROUTE EAST Know That Brown's Iron Bitters will cure the worst case of dyspepsia.
