political paper is generally n Very rocky
one, especially when its life depends on the
support that is Riven it by the party. Our
friend, the editor of the Mountain Sentinel,
is in considerable trouble, lie has been
trying to run a democratic pappr for .several
months past and finds that he lis n hercu
lean job on his hands. Thi rouuty, unlike
the most of counties, in blest with twodemo
rratie inrtiu-i, and when the organ s:iys
anything favorable to one party, the other
gives hitn a kvk. and when, thhikinii
to make amend, lie ;ivs something fa
vorable of the kicker, he gets busted bv the
opposite party for 1 1 pains, 'decently he
lia itieurred 'the diplensuro of ihe party

N. Hamilton and A.T. Neil! the newly elec
ted sherifi'niid clerk of this county, notify
ing these gentlemen that their right to those
offices would be contested. What the out
come of it will lie we cannot jay, but think
it will amount to nothing more than to
give a lit'.le tumble to Neill and Hamilton.
It is pretty well understood in whose inter
est the contest is made, but it is not policy
to name tho parties at present. The peo
ple of I'nion county will probably mete out
justice to them should thev ever again ask
the favors of the Miter.-.. The secrecy with
Trhich the matter was worked up, and the
frivolous charges made, together with the
parties who have been and are taking an
active part to thwart justice, have already
received the verdict of an honest and con
demning public, as nothing honest is in
the allair. but was stewed up in the greedy
desire "to do anything, Lord."
