    Driven From Kentucky.

    We had a call yesterday from Mr. A. R. Ambrose, a native of Dupage county, Illinois, who has for the last two years or more been the Secretary of the Breckinridge Coal Company at Cloverport, Ky. At the late Presidential election his was the only vote given for Lincoln in that town, and from that moment he was marked for “export.” On the 27th of December a public meeting was held, and Mr. Ambrose received summary notice to “quit,” for no other reason than that he had exercised the right of a freeman to vote for the man of his choice for President. Not wishing to appeal to the bowie knife and pistol, against [insensate?] mob, Mr. Ambrose left at once. We learn that the Company will have to import some other young man to keep their books, for there is not a man of sufficient commercial education in the town to do it.
