, at Rochester
, on Green River, Ky.
, forcibly took a fine yoke of oxen and other property from the Rev. Mr. Wiggins
, a worthy clergyman, and paid him with a three hundred dollar check on the Southern Bank
, where he hadn't funds to the amount of a dollar.
To say nothing of the epauletted rascal's forcible seizure of the property, his giving a check upon a bank in which he had no money deposited was a penitentiary offence under our laws.
We hope the officers of justice in that section will do their duty.
We are well aware, that if Buckner
shall be put to hard work at Frankfort
in the service of the State
, his friend the Governor
will let him loose, but he should be sent there anyhow.--Louisville Journal, Oct
