A tour through the basement of the

figures in tbe Br use, is to retire from
political life. 11a is engaged in
writing a b ok to cover our political
history duiing the war period. The
venorable war Governor is sixty-eight
years old, but is possessed of a greac
amount of vim. His daughter, Miss
Katie Uurtin, is affianced to Mr. Bur
nett, of Florida.
Mr. Nicolas Taratinoff, of Rustia, is
bore studying our ststem ot common
schools, which do not exist in the
Czar's realm. He warmly approves of
our plan of coeducation of the sexes,

gence in tbe United mates u the high-
eat in the world. He is from the
province of Georgia, south of the
Caucasus mountains, the cradle of tbe
wo Id, noted in times I ait for its beau
tiful women. Mr. Tar a in-ff, however,
declares that Georgia gil ls of today are
83 attractive as their sisters ot Amer
ica. Petroleum is one of the great
products of the Russian Georgia, and
the kerosene trade of that province is
rapidly revolutionizing the commer
cial world. Cotton is raised in large
quantities clear down to tbe foot of
Mount Arrarat.on the southern border
of the province.

To Rev. Dr. W. II. Milbum :
Sir During a visit to New York
from wbichlbave on y recently re'
turned, I read with griet and indiena-
ticn ihe report given by the Nashville
American, of Sep'embr 17ih, of your
address on the life and cha-acttr of
my husband an address the con
eluding pirtion of which I consider
the very worst of all the calumnies
ever circulated against him, for it is
expressed in terms so guarded and so
veiled as to admit ot any construction
however vile, and !a rendered doubly
effective by your position as a mm
ieter cf tbe gospel End a man of great
I iai hardly hore to induce yon ti
make any reparation for the injury
done to mv husband, of whose private
life yru evidently know nothing, and
wish to know no'hing, since you have
been so little it.ntienced by the repre
sentattons of his brother, the Rev.
Gen. L Prentiss, of N'w York, and
his brotbei-in-'aw. the Rjv. Jonathan
S. Stearns, of New Jerser. who called
you to account, many years f go for
your denunciations of lrm. You
have learned to be more prudent, to
avoid direct accusations, and that ia
If, therefore, I now cddresB you, it
!a because I feel that I have not long
to live, and I wieh before I die to bear
witness to tbe character of my hua
band, which I do not hesita'e to pro
nrunce the noblest and puiest I have
ever known. Permit m ti stat to
you that he was utterly devoid of self
ambition, living rnly t) serve his
country and his fellowmen, and desir
ing to be remembe-ed only by thes?
he loved : tha" his fortune was loRt bv
the decision of lhe Supreme Court of
the United Sta'eB involving his title
to the Vicksburg commons; that he
died of a disease inherited from Irs
faher. and th-tt his deith was hast
tuned by the fatigue and exposure of
tne l're-1 lent at canvass ot i4, and
by overwork in his efforts ti extricate
himaelf from h a financial difiiBtilties.
You have youraelf represented me
as one whose word should be consid
ered worthy of belief, and I now call
upon you to retract your calumnies
against my bu band, or at least never
to repea' ihtra without also repeat ng
this testimony in nis tavor.

AN ANCIENT BALLAD.
John Tomllnnoc, of Kansas
By all tbe etnn be swore
That uin abauld roam or wander
About bia farm no wore.
By ill tbe start he sought,
For long upon his firm
The bunting- men had rambled
And wrought him mighty harm.
And then s sign he nested.
Which people all did warn,
That he would send to prison
Such men as tramped his oorn;
"Sow, by Osiris," said he,
"And by the beard of Cain,
We'll fee if all tbese huntsmm
Shall roam my farm again."
One day he found a hunter
Asleep upon the ground.
His gun and ammunition
Were lying all around;
And Tomlinson. of Kansas,
Orat.be j up the hunter's ran ;
lie found it primed and loaded,
Then woke the sleeping one.
And when the hunter wakened
And scrambled to his feet.
The farmer aimed and cried. "Now Knare,
Ihy power thou shalt eat!"
In vat" bis te-rs and pleadings,
For Tomlinson was fir.u.
And lo! the hunter chewed away
With many a grorn and squirm.
And while he moaned and muttered
The farmer did but I.iunh,
And when a pound was gone cried,
"Now. 1 have etiten half:
If I eat more I'll surely die.
Now let me say il l done.
Ard I will tiny clear of thy farm,
Ana tnou give me tne gun.
John Tomlinson, of Kansns,
A mighty InuRh laughed be,
"Now, aere's thy gun," be smiling cried
"How does thy food airree?"
Tbe hunter took the weapon
And to his shoulder preesed.
"Now, fanner," quoted he, "by the rooJ
John Tomlinson, of Kansas,
A doughty man was he.
Yet tore his honrt, as he knelt down
I lion his warlike knee.
And ate the huntsman's powdor,
A half a pound or more.
And thus he kept his knightly word,
Ana Kept llie oatn be swore.
