Tho Gtato Journal, FRIDAY AUGUST 17. 1877 ,' The laboring men of Louisville " have whipped out tho Democracy of that city, horse, loot and dragoon.

FREEDOM AT LAST. J. A. Joycr is Discharged Under tiik Hadcaa Cori-us Act. In the United States District Court Monday, Judge Krekel decided the application of Col. J. A. Joyce lor a discharge from Imprisonment on the grounds heretofore mentioned. That the charge prored against him constituted but one offence, and that the sentence under which he was serving was cumulative, and, in so much as was cumulative, was void. It will 08 perceived by reading the (opinion of the court hereto, that while It is held by his honor that the Indictment charges two distinct offences, a conspiracy to defraud the government, and a failure to report knowledge of the violations of the revenue law, as re quire.! by law of him as a revenue agent, yet the evidence tended to establish only the con Kpiracy, the "guilty knowledge" being merely an incident. The United States was represented by Hon. M. T. C. Williams, Assistant U. 8. Attorney. CoL Jeyce was represented by bis faithful and persevering Attorney, Go...

FOR THE 1ARMER. Some Hint About August Work. Preparations for sowing wheat should be made at once. There was formerlj more difference of opinion as to the time of sowing wheat than there la now. The majority of farmera faror early Bowing, and If the seed if well in the ground late in August, the chances are more favora ble than if it is sewn later. Where wheat follows oats, the oat stubble should be plowed immediately after the crop is taken from the field. If the weather is dry, the greater will be the necessity tor repeated plowing and rollinir, to prevent the soil from baking. A mellow soil, well rolled and packed, is what the seed require to germinate in. If the soil is cloddy, the young roots are exposed to the action of air in the open spaces, and dried and killed. This is the secret ol many failures of what were at first promising seedings. Repeated har rowings and rollings are needed to pro duce the proper condition of the soil. No matter if the surface if somewhat rough, if...
