Editorial Paragraphs.

General William Preston, of Lexington, has been elected Vice-President of our Society for Kentucky, to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of General S. B. Buckner, who wrote that while feeling the deepest interest in the Society and its work, his frequent absence from home precluded him from giving us the active co-operation desirable.

He warmly advised the election of General Preston, whom he regarded as every way fitted for the position. To his gallant and distinguished services as a soldier, General Preston adds high character, wide influence and that chaste oratory which seems to be the natural inheritance of the Prestons, and we doubt not that we have committed the interests of the Society in Kentucky into most worthy hands.
