A COTTON FACTORY, IN NASHVILLE.
The Nashville (Tennosseo) Bajmer mys:
"The establishment of a mammoth
cotton manufactury which has, during
the past three months, been agitating
tho minds of tho capitalists of our city,
is now beyond a peradventure. Tho last
dollar of the $300,000 stock required
has been subscribed. Tho stockholders
represent some of tho strongest moneyed
and energetic businesiimen of Nashville.
Tho manufactory will bo located on
eighteen acres of ground, including tho
McGavock Spring, donated by tho North
Ashville Land Company. It is a littlo
singular that upon the very spot where,
in 1777, tho pioneers first pitched their
tents, built their stockades to resist thc
constant invasions of the Indians, clear?
ed their first land and raised their first
crops, so gigantio and industrial a con
corn as projected should be erected."

ANDY AS A THORN.-Writhe and squirm
os they may, the radicals cannot shake
off the awful conviction that Andy is
coming back to Washington to punish
them. Tho dreadful monster, whom
they had fondly hoped had been slain
and buried out of sight, is to appear be?
fore them again, with flaming eyes and
gnashing teeth. No mau in the broad
land do they hate as they do Andrew
Johnson; and if they could have fore?
seen the Democratic coup d' etat in Ten?
nessee, thoy would have stopped nt no
forcible moans to have prevented a fair
election. Cn any trumped-up pretext
the State could have been overrun with
bayonets, Senter would have been de?
posed, aud negroes alone would have
been admitted to the registry. But
Boutwell, Butler, Logan, and tho gang
of "bitter-ouder8," who run tho govern?
ment, failed to look far enough ahead
this timo. So the detested Andy is com?
ing back again to mortify them with his
triumphant ostentation, to hound them
to rage with taunts, to harass them by
exposures of their secret rascalities, to
bore them almost to death with his in?
terminable speeches, to be a very thorn
in their sides, and tear their quivering
flesh dey by day. What a prospect for
tho sinners!-Neic York News.
The famous Siamese twine, Chang and
Eng-or as they are known in more mo?
dern and polite parlance, Messrs. Chang
and Eng Bouker-have gone on to Har?
risburg, Pennsylvania. They aro accom?
panied by their wives, aud a numerous
retinue of children.
Died, on the 29th of July, 1869, MAUD
GIBBES, daughter of David B. and Elmanda
T. Clayton, aged one year.
In this sad bereavement the brightest hopes
of fond and devoted parents have been crush?
ed; the fond anticipations of the future dis?
pelled hy the dark, lowering, sombre cloud of
death; the glowing prospect s indulged in have
been dissipated hy the gloomy night of sorrow
and grief; and the grave-tho cold, the silent
gravo of darkness and gloom-enshrouds all
that was bright, beautiful and lovely.
Interest must ever bo awakened by tho spor?
tive gambols and sprightly ways of childhood;
and tho subject of this notice, though hut in
infancy, excited admiration hy h r 'Marked in?
telligence and vivacity. But that Al! ~r?so Be?
ing who, in inscrutable wisdom and o'ertlow
ing mercy, sees lit to af?lict, has called her to
his throne in Heaven, to minister with othor
angels, who delight in singing hallelujahs to
thc King of Hosts.
Resignation to God's holy will, and feeling
that tho separation is hut a temporary one,
consoles tho bereaved parents of her who has
gone before, to be, perhaps, a watch and di?
rector o'er their motives aud actions.
Inaocent and guileless, sho has left this
dark, transitory and fleeting world, to inhabit
a sphere better suited to her nure spirit, to
sing in harmony with countless nherubs
around tho throne of a kind and indulgent
Father. Removed from scenes of trial and
woo, and transferred to a elimo more congo .
nial to her pure and unsullied spirit, sho j
will glorify her merciful and beneficent Hen- i
venly Father, and await a re-union with those
who loved her so fondly and dearly during her
brief sojourn on earth.
Tho earthly father's love prompts this feeble
tributo to the memory of his baby:
One short and happy year
She smiled on us below;
We hoped to keep her herc
Till WO wcro called to go;
But God takes hack the blessings lent,
Though wo our weaker claims present.
Our solfish hearts had bound her
To hold her back from bliss;
Now glory beams around her
In brighter worlds than this.
Farowell, till guardian angels come,
To bear us to her happy home.
