One of the consequences of the recent political calamity in our State, is the remission of his honor G. Horton to the quiet of unofficial life. His usefulness is however unlike to terminate, with this sad event. Our enterprising fellow-citizen, E. P. McDowell, proposes to exhibit him at the Centennial, as the emblem of one of the two elements, ignorance and rascality, heretofore controlling Southern local governments. He will be presented, in a sideshow, holding court. There is money in it for Gilbert, and a moral for the nation and the world.
