The speakers were unanimous in com
mending harmony and solidity In the

duty of voting a straight, unscratched
Democratic ticket in June and November
So far as we are personally acquainted
with the gentlemen composing tbe above

that it la about as bard a ticket to beat as
the Democracy has put up for the last
twelve years. We are glad to know that
it Democrats are to fill the offices, tbey

then we will say to the gentlemen com
peting the ticket, "tbe race is not always
to tbe swift, or the battle to the strong,"

out for us next week, for we'll be in this
race with a ticket that must win and

A man named Am. Farrier, "who Hvet
out on McDowell creek, a few miles above
Lebanon, came into the city on Monday
evening and surrendered himself to debut
SberiS Humphrey, Informing that ofBosr
that be had a difficulty that morning wita
a young man named Wiley Powell, a
grandson of tha late Uncle Joab "Powell,
during which be had,!iot, and be seppea
ed killed, Powell. He said his shot took
effect in tbe neek, that Powell tell to tbe
ground, and as he made no attempt te
rise, he was certain be killed blm, and
with this belief ho fled with all baste to
this city that be might give himself into
the bands of the law. Tbe deputy bertf
took him to jail at once. As we under
stand It, there baa been a misunder
standing between tbe two men for a long
time, occasioned by Powell's attentions te
Farrier's wife. Wiley Powell will be re
membered aa tbe man who defied deputy
sheriff Humphrey, some months ago, when
that officer went out to arrest blm. When
the deputy and assistant ' came witala
speaking distance ot Powell, who waa
hid on the hill among tbe fir brush, that
worthy young man fired a shot fromfcia

on the afternoon of that day, was correct
In his supposition, as the man Powell died
In a few minutes after betug shot, tbe
ball entering his neck just below the jaw.
The vlrdict of the Jury, assembled shortly
after Powell's death, was to tbe effect
that deceased came to his death trots e
wound inflicted by Am. Farrier. Tbe
prisoner claims that l killed Powell In
self-defense. Several parties beard tbe
report of the pistol or gun. but no one, we
believe actually witnessed tbe killing. A
gentleman who was near enough to bear a
word now and then as tbe two men were
conversing, beard one ot the men, and be
was pretty certain it waa Powell, say be
would kill the other, but he did not sea the
shooting. He beartrtbe" explosion bl tbe
firearm, and turning In the direction et

The debate on Sunday evening at tbe
Court House, between Messrs. Alf. Marsb.
