Good judges of' horse-flesh n ay v.t a
point fromil the extract below as to
what young mules will sell for here
this fall. The Lexington (Ky.) Ob
ServCr of the 15th says :
Peter Gentry, of 11toyle county, sold
to Clag Bishop & Co., on the 10th in.
stant, '78 extra two-year old mniles at
$160 per head. On the 9th, Dr.
Moore, of Mercer county, sold to same
21 two-year old mules for 130 per

were sold on the street in this city at
private sale, on Monday last, at $1:
The Free School.
About five months ago we called at
tention to the Free School under the
charge of Miss Mackey, an accomaplish
ed and experienced, and what is still
better, a conseientious, teacher. We
have seen this school in its workings,
and can testify that there is a work
going on there that is not at all appre
ciated to a degree commensurate with
As will appear under the head of
communications, there is an appeal
made to the nicrehants and citizens of
this community, which we hope will
be cordially and liberally responded
to. Thelo are children at that school,
who but for it, would not unlikely be
roaming the streets much to the an-.
noyance of the window'glass and other
fiagile parts of publie or private build
ings. But this is a minor considera
tion. Those children are undergoing
a course of instruction to fit them to
become good and worthy citizens, and
it is to the interest of all to have them
such. It is really a valuable invest
ment then, and we hope will be freely
made, as an opportunity will be af
forded all concerned to do it.
It will be seen that heretofore this
school has been supported exclusively
from the.alms-giving of the Episcopal
Church, while we believe there is not
one of that denomination in attend
ance at the school. Theli school is eim
phatically a free one, and it should be
freely supp)orted by this community.
A mite given for the increase of know
ledge, where the opportunities for
knowledge are with a competent teach..
er, will more than repay the giver.

will give our readers some idea of' the inex
liaustible fertility of the Western couni rv:
Within six weeks, that is to say, by the
1st of October, will be harvested one of th<
largest corn crops ever produced in tihe Uni
ted States. Nothing can look more luxuril.
ant than the fields of growing corn that
covY( thousands of acres in the vallies of
tleOhioand Missouri Rivers, where one.
half of the entire crop in the United Statet
is produced. A writer in one of the Wes.
tern papers calculates that, as a bushel oj
corn contains sixty solid pounds of grain,
the crop of tile current year, even if il
should not exceed 80,000,010 hushels, wiil
anount to four iliousand eight hdndret
million (4,800,000,000) pounds of grain,
besides an equal weight inl fodder. Th<
value to the country of such an aggrecgat<
of ngriculltural wealt h, sprinagi ng from it
