The case of Kentucky is in painful contrast with that of Missouri. While the one is throwing off the yoke, the other is putting it on; while the one is rising into independence, the other is sinking into slavery. Kentucky is about at last to drink to the dregs the cup of desolation. Her Governor and her Legislature crouch with craven fear before the approaching despotism. They are necessitating a long and bloody strife for their people. The condition of Kentucky will be even more hopeless for awhile than that of Maryland.--But there is a leaven in her population which will sooner or later leaven the lump. The brave spirits of Kentucky under Buckner and Johnston will never surrender the cause of their State. They will fight on through adversity and disaster, until the dawning of that brighter day, which always rises for the patriots and heroes who do their duty faithfully through the night and the winter of gloom, and hold fast to the cause in the hours that try men's souls.
The horses attached to a wagon passing down Main street, on yesterday, became rather unmanageable, and drawing the wagon very near another vehicle by which a soldier was standing, jammed him between the two and injured him considerably; not very seriously, however, no bones being broken. He was taken into the drug store of Mr. Peyton Johnston, where his wounds were dressed.--He is a member of Capt. O'Neal's company, of the Eighteenth Georgia. Regiment. We hear that some of his comrades standing near, made hostile demonstrations towards the driver, which induced him to jump from his seat and take to his heels, leaving his wagon and team in their possession; and that they declared they would take the prize to their camp. Whether the threat was carried into execution or not, we cannot say.
