Fitzhugh, Deputy Sheriff and jailor of this county went up into the jail 011 last Thursday morning, when a des- perate fight ensued between him- self and Geo. Smith, a prisoner. Smith was convicted here at the last term of the District Court for horse stealing. The case was appealed to the Supreme Court and there confirmed. Smith has been rather desperate since, and threatens to take the life of the jailor, if he ever comes in reach. Mr. Fitzhugh was badly hurt, having been struck several blows on the head with a piece of iron, which caused him to spit blood for sometime. He is now up and about.—Henderson Times.

Cjje JlejpseiMk RICHARD NELSON, EDITOR AXD TROPEIETOR. For President In 1872, ULYSSES S. GRANT Subject to tl e nomination of the National -Republican Convention. SATURDAY, MAY 25, 1872. Greeley said in '64 that the people didn't want Lincoln elect- ed, and, conceiving himself to be the people, worked hard against Lincoln. He will win a similar triumph over Grant. Lincoln and Grant suppressed a rebellion, which Greeley tried strategically ro tlnnk away off in Canada. He e in't forget either of them. 11 is a curious fact that the strength tirst displayed by Mr. Greeley m the Cincinnati Con- vention came largely from men known as Southern " carpet- baggers." Any one who wishes t o know exactly what Mr. Greeley thinks, in his sober moments, of this class of politicians, will do well to consult his speech of June last on his return from the South. He never employed his line talent for denunciation to better effect; and through the last performances of his South- ern friends may induce hi...
