          We find the  Savannah  (Andrew county, Missouri)  New Era, of the 19th of November, a card from our former fellow-citizen, Robert Conover, returning his thanks to the people of said county for the honor conferred at the recent election in choosing him Sheriff of the county.  He was elected on the Liberal or anti-Administration and anti-Radical ticket, from which we are led to infer that Bob is nearer a Democrat than we ever knew him to be before.  In his card he promises to discharge the duties of the office in a fair and impartial manner and to the best of his ability, having an eye solely to the interest and welfare of the people.
          We congratulate Major Conover and also the people of Andrew county, the Major because he is a native of this county and a personal friend, and the people because we know they have an accomplished and competent gentleman for an officer.
