Thank God, though late, the righteous cause is thine, Ready to drink thy cup like festal wine. Thank God, however dark thy day be found, Patriots shall sow with flowers the Bloody Ground. Thank God, for Breckinridge and Buckner's shame; Crittenden speaks, and Rousseau's sword's aflame; (And, Prentice!--blame your newsboy!--by the Eternal, You take the War Department of — the Journal!) Lo! where they stand, the impious-hearted ones, Who dare to call themselves Kentucky's sons! No! the old Mother knows them not; she knows Her household shame, her fireside's fiercest foes. Her curse is on them — lo! the Mother saith, “Scatter my chaff before the cannon's breath!” --Therefore, O Year, within thy coffin lie, Wrapped in the costliest robes of History; Thy soul shall rise in many an after
know who I am? quietly remarked Capt. Morgan, continuing the conversation. I have not that pleasure, remarked the operator. Well, I am Capt. Morgan, responded that gentleman. At these words the operator's cheeks blanched, his knees shook, the revolver dropped from his hands, and he sunk to the floor. He literally wilted. After the frightened individual had recovered him-self sufficiently, Capt. Morgan required him to telegraph some messages to Louisville, among others one to Prentice of the Journal, politely offering to act as his escort on his proposed visit to Nashville. Then taking the operator with him as a prisoner, Capt. Morgan with his men awaited the arrival of the train from Bowling Green for Nashville. In due time the train came thundering in. Capt. Morgan at once seized it, and taking five Union officers who were passengers and the engineer of the train prisoners, he burned to cinders all of the cars, with their contents, and then filling the locomotive w

titioners, both grandsons of Noah Webster, Charles C. and W. W. Fowler, contributed $25 each. The subscription having reached near $20,000, it was suggested that the amount must be made to equal that of the merchants, and a new enthusiasm was aroused, and soon the amount reached over $25,000. Mr. Busteed said that so far as the action of the merchants was concerned, he had been informed by Mr. Wm. G. Lambert that the honored merchants of New York, as the result of the meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, had written to the President that they would furnish him with a hundred millions of dollars if it was necessary (loud cheers,) and that to sustain the Government, they had pledged themselves as sacredly as had the Fathers of the Revolution. It was announced, also, that Mr. Birney, of the firm of Birney & Prentice, was also raising a regiment, and had been commissioned. Mr. Evarts made a similar statement in reference to the Hon. Daniel E. Sickles.--N. Y. Tribune, April 23.
nth Michigan, was killed. General Hobson sent detachments forward to hold the road on both flanks, to prevent the enemy from getting in our front, and to him the entire command feels indebted for bringing them safely back to Mount Sterling. Before closing, I may mention that a detachment of the First Kentucky cavalry and Third Kentucky mounted infantry, consisting of two hundred men, under Major Keene, were sent through Pound Gap, to make a diversion in our favor. They had a fight with Prentice at Gladesville, Virginia, and whipped him, scattering the rebels and capturing their cannon. I am unable to give any account of further movements of Generals Burbridge and McLean, as they were not with the troops at any time after the command was assumed by Hobson. But I have learned that they arrived safely in Cincinnati almost a week previous to the arrival of the troops in Mount Sterling. I have endeavored to be brief and just, and if any have not been mentioned, whose bravery deserve

sm, and through them exerted an influence no less wide, and, certainly no less vital to the health of the finer type of democracy, than that of men whose service to journalism is more frequently mentioned and imitated. But the strongest tendency of the newspapers was not indicated by the independence of a Bowles or a Godkin, nor by any apparent revival of the idea that editorial discussion was an important function of the newspaper. Successors of the early editorial giants were found in Prentice, Medill, Grady, Rhett, Gay, Young, Halstead, McCullagh, the second Samuel Bowles, Rublee, McKelway, Hemphill, and Watterson, to mention only a few of many; personality continued to make itself felt, as it has done in Henry Watterson,—who carried into the new century traits of a journalism fifty years old,—in Scripps, Otis, Nelson, Scott, and scores of others; but by the early eighties the name of the editor had become relatively unimportant along with the editorial. The principal feature

r co-operated with them, and was never, in the Jackson sense, a Democrat, but a decided Whig. The history of the rise of the Whig party, occasioned by the violent Federal measures and principles of the Jackson Democratic party, which was in no sense Democratic, is very fairly presented by the writer of the Letters and Times of the Two Tylers. It was characterized by the exhibition of the talent of such men as Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Tyler, Leigh, Archer, Badger, Berrien, Preston, White, Prentice, Reverdy Johnson, and many others, determined to resist the violent measures of Andrew Jackson as President of the United States. We will not enter into a discussion of the many points on which the Whig party acted. It is known, historically, how Federal the so called Democratic party of the Jackson school became, and, in truth, the Whigs were more Democratic than the professed Democrats. It was under that influence that Mr. Webster said the Whigs had, in England, been a party opposed t

. It was a funeral of great solemnity, and the best people of the land were present. At that time O'Hara was editing a newspaper in Frankfort, Ky., and, of course, made the best effort he could, and no one can say it was not a grand one. He seems to have thrown his soul into the work, and produced one of the finest pieces in the English language. How long he was working at it no one at this day knows, perhaps, for as an editor he was kept busy pretty much all of the time. In Kentucky Mr. Prentice was looked upon as the poet, and O'Hara's brilliant production flashed like a meteor over the State. It satisfies in every respect, and may be pronounced perfect. Colonel O'Hara was born near Danville, Ky., on the 11th of February, 1820, and graduated at St. Joseph College, Bardstown. For a time he was editor of the Mobile Register, and afterward editorially connected with the Louisville Times and the Frankfort Yeoman. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1845.
