Preparations to Overawe Kentucky.
The Frankfort Yeoman
warns the people of Kentucky
that secret machinations are at work to bring about a subjection as complete as that of Maryland
That paper says:
It has information from a source of the highest respectability that Garrett Davis
has procured a large quantity of arms for the exclusive use of his partisans.
From thirty-two to forty boxes, containing 1200 stand of arms and ammunition, were known to have been brought across the river from Cincinnati
, shipped on a special night train, and delivered in Paris
before light on Saturday morning, and put under guard of a strong patrol awaiting to receive them; and before daylight, two wagons were loaded and sent off to Georgetown
Fourteen boxes were retained at Paris
; the remainder, it is presumed, were dispatched to Lexington
The arrival of guns and ammunition at Paris
— muskets — was the signal of great rejoicing, manifested in the form of wasting ammunition by many discharges of musketry.-- The guns were promptly distributed to those deemed faithful, Mr. Davis
being on hand, the foremost figure in the foreground.
