Editorial in theHiokory Fork Sen
tinel: It lias come to our ears that
the Rev. John Horn, during a
prayer ocfore his congregation at
Elk Creek chuch, last Suuday,
made some very uncomplimentary
and uncalled for remarks In regard
to the editor of this paper. Ho pray
ed that our paper might wither as
It falls from the press, and that tho
hand that writes its editorials might
be paralyzed. Now, hero is tho rva
son why Mr. Horn uttered such a
prayer: Last year he camo out as a
candidate for justice of the" peace.
We had nothing against him, altho'
he is a Methodist and wo n Baptist,
and would have supported him, but
when we asked him to put his an
nouncement in our lwper ho hem
med and hawed, and that, too, after
we had offered htm the half-rato
which we usually extend to the
clergy. Then wo told him that if
lie would give us three dollars we
would print his announcement.
What did he do? Ho wrote out a
lot of notices and stuck them up on
trees. Could an American brook
such an insult? Wo would not. Is
u citizen of this great coinmoit wealth'
allied upon to bear such contempt?
We do not think he Is: mi with tho
pen of just retribution, we 'pricked
this bull-calf till he roared again.'
Wo throw ourselves into the cam
paign, we, in tho languige of Logan,
chief of the Mingoes, glutted our
vengeance. We saw tho reverend
defeated and then vd quietly sought
our huniblo abodo. Now, this man
must run us into one of his prayers.
Ho must hold us up before a congre
gation and pursuade his hearers to
look upon us with contempt. Pray
on wcaK vessel, covered witn tne
rust of iniquity pray on, for the
prayers of the wickid are of no avail
but if ever you come near us, you
gobble-headed hypocrite, we'll give
you a kicking that will appeal to
every ungodly Joint in your body."
