Dr. Johnson praised the youth, who, having seduced a young girl in a fit of animal excitement, on being asked by her, after the fact, Have we not done wrong? promptly replied, Yes. For, he said, although I ravished her body, I was not so bad as to wish to ravish her mind. Our slavemasters are not so generous.

Judges Elmore and Johnson were discharged, with Governor Reeder, nominally for land specJohnson were discharged, with Governor Reeder, nominally for land speculations; but Elmore, really, as he himself declared in his letter to Mr. Cushing, in order that the dismission of two acknowledged Free State officials might not give it the appearance of proslavery championship.

Finally he reached friends, who gave him food, clothing and shelter, and he remained there some time, regaining his health. Then he joined the Second Kentucky cavalry, under Col. Tom Johnson, and finished his career as a soldier at Mount Sterling. He was wounded in each of the battles of Manassas.
