for an extetulve manufceturinf city, and the time
bat eome -noet aospicious for the Inauguration of
these enterprise in our midst. Tb opportunity
may be lost by the discord or supinees of our own
citiiens, or be precipitated by their unity, concert
and promptness of action. . , ,
Like other cities all over the South, Clarksville
has suffered severely in the last four - rears.
in tbedlterson of Its trade, the depreciatiou of
its values and ia the partial and utter losses
property. 3ut, under the reign of peace
restored and the Industry and energy of a deter
mined population, Phoenix like, ' it will sprint
from its ashes and reverses into new . life, and, by
Impulse, be moved forward towards n prouder pre
eminence than It could bars ever attained without
these reverses. We are thus sanguine, in lb out
set, from a knowledge of the people and sources oa
which those enterprises depend. ' Clarksville,' In its
location,' l proverbially healthy; iu climate is
mild, it has a surrounding country full of all the
elements and materials of wealth and thrift This
surrounding country, of hills, valleys and plains.
is meandered, in every direction, by streams of
pure cbrystal waters, of all magnitudes, from the
placid Cumberland, navigable for vessels of Bore
than two thousand tons, down to the smallest brook.
And is as varied In its resources, and as productive
injsoil as it is diversified and beautiful in its land,
scape. : '
Red river, with its numerous tributaries, and
other creeks and streams In out vicinity, affords
the most ample water-power, and, by the applica
tion of machinery, ' could be turned to the most
profitable account. Our bills are stored with the
richest iron and other ores and minerals, some of
them but little prospected, but, most likely, are of
the moet valuable kinds.
Our forests abound in the finest timber for ship
and boat building, for agricultural implements and
for sit other purposes. The surface soil of this
whole surrounding country is fertile sad productive
of tbs heaviest crops of corn, wheat and all other
grains, and of the smaller field and garden crops.
Tobacco grows finely and matures Into great per
fection ; its yield is heavy, making its culture most
profitable to the planter, and ia. of that superior
quality, commercially denominated "Clarksville
Tobacco," and worth, in all the markets of the
world, two dollars more than that grown west and
northwest of us. The grape and fruits and berries,
in endless variety, flourish and ripen into great
excellence. m .,
Stock of all kinds thrive and fatten well, said
eould be raised Very profitably for the murt.U.
Our city had, before ths war, acquired a very con
s'derable . commercial importance. Its export
values amounting to from three to five millions an
nually, and all drawn from our agricultural and
other resources, and they, then as now, not one-
teuth develoied. But notwithstanding oar former
commercial consequence and our agricultural thrift,
manufacture bad made but little progress, not
that our advantatge were net great, or that they
were not appreciated, but mainly, if not altogether,
owing to the incompatibilities of slays or mono
polized labor with such .enterprises. ..Under this
old or former system of labor one, and not the
least, of these incompatibilities was the absorption
of nearly all tb capital in the eountry, as fast as
produced, in the one great standing mode in use
of investment a unstable as tb sands of the
desert or a little mora land and a few mar
negroes; so that there was scircely any money
for anything else, and absolutely noas at all left
for manufacturing and other kiudred stocks.
Now, under the recent cbange, our labor sys-
tom is free, and congenial to manufacturing and
other enterprises of a kindred character, as well as
to a fuller, freer and a more thorough development
of our resources of every kind.
Under the operation and effects of this system,
aud iu adjunct, high taxes, which must continue,
for many yean to come, full one one-half of all
our lands will go on the market and be sold. This
deposition of lauds will be partly from choice,
and in au area of thirty miles around, assuming
Clarksville as a centre, will produce cash capital
not leas than from five to seven millions, to which,
if we add the amount now iu the country, and
that which will be saved from former investments,
we think two millions more, it will' giv from
seven to nine millions, soon to be seeking invest-
mrnt, and which must aud will go into something,
aad nothing so likely as good home or local manu
facturing and other stocks, if they are prepared in
This division of large tracts of laud into single
hands will not prove prejudicial to the farming, or
agricultural iulerest, as a whole, but will, by the
multiplication of farms aud the contest that will
arise in better tillage, la the aggregate double the
yield, and, in many staples, Improve the quality
Labor, suited to every kind of manufactures is
now not only available, but it abundant and cheap,
and, iu some of its forms, apjalt, imploringly, to
the capitalist for aid. - It asks no direct contribu
tion, but that manufactories and other meant of

place where, by their Industry and fidelity, they
can earn for themselves a competenc and swell

and benefactors, tb (bar bolder, Into larger pro
portions. It appears to the writer that to consider
each and every circumstance, at we should consider
them, they are all auspicious and all invite us, as
a community, to engage la th enterprises we pro
pose. Iet u bar our system of manufacture ;
let us bare our cotton and our wolleu mills ; our
Iron and wood manufactures, and in eveiy other
material, Tb tim I auspicious. Uur young
men, many of them, need place and position to
be schooled and conformed to habit of business

of maimer year mill direct those eut ir prises suc

We tr coovieneot to th raw material of cot

and direction. We bare a considerable original
population largely Interested in the city aad coun
try around ut, of industry and much business ex

the commerce and trade of a whole republic. Al
ready there ar some accession of others like our
own population, and these will be larger still.
Let u iuvlts them by or courtesies and by cordi

giv to their avocations, busines and professions,
make all thai come among ns feel at bom and not
as if amongst strangers,, but . with friend and

and trader, to the mechanic and artisian of every

or citizen of every band. " Let them ' com among

our great resources, and Tritb us, build up our city
and countrr. and make homes and fortunes for

we bare the nucluet or positive startiug point of

A little timely action, a steady purpose and some

opinion, to recover onr diverted trade, and to add

; CHRONICLE ANP JKFFIKS0NIAN.
. We ar glad to find on our tnbt at an exchange
the old Clarksville (Tenn.) Chronicle. It is one of
the ablest papers in Tennewea. and we believe, ha

writer, has few equals in this country. In days past,
when old party issue used to divide the people of
Tennessee, as an old line n'hig, "Old Bob" was a
tower of strength. U is aan the author of Several

beautiful creation from hit prolidc brain. We
were talking ce day with the gifted, bat now la

Chronicle was the ablest Whig paper in the Slate.

should b an able writer aad a maa of sense, or be
never would have made him so d 4 ugly I
All of "Uld Bob's" sons were in the Southern
army, and if he bad not been a cripple, be too
would have been in.

cotton: . '
There it In stock in Liverpool and London but
304,000 bales, against 803,000 last year, and at sea,
reducing the China bulea to the size of Surats,
160,000, against 395,000, whereas the consumption
of Great Britain and the Continent is probably one-
thira larger that it was at the corresponding time
lost year, and the scale of prices ia about the same,
The only set off against this is the larfe stuck now
held by the trade ; iu the last five weeks they have
taken on the average 87,000 bales per week, and
putting their consumption for this period at 43, "00
they must now bold a stock of 110.00, But It
must be remembered that they held literally nothing
when the free buying rotnnienued, and could not
afford to part with their surplus while to deeply

large and liberal supplies from America at an early
date can save nt from drifting into a cotton mmine,
and all its accompanying disturbance to trade.

So many and tuch conflicting account at the man

at the time, hav been put forth by persons whA
tew rery little, if anything, of what they affirmed,
that an aocouut of tbe occurrence, as given by net

interesting to all wbo desire to. toe truth prfem4

On a certain day, th dale of which, even, tf
remembered, could have no important bearing on,
the real state of facte at here recited, Mr. Davis
and party had, for reasons best known to them
selves, separated, each taking a different roate,
though, as mutually agreed beforehand, it vat the
intention Of both parties to meet at a given place
at as near s stated period of time as circamstaoces
would allow. From the time of this parting noth
log of interest oecured or served to hinder their
progress, until the following morning, a w thai)
see by the facts of the case stated by Mr. Reagan.
Night coming on,' they chose a plsc for encamp
ment " As they supposed themselves, for lb timej
being, at least, in no danger from tha Federal car,
airy,, and a their bone were in ad want of rest
and fodder, they were just on the point of un.
strapping their saddles preparatory to retnainlas;
encamped for the night, when tbey learned that this
party of which the president s family wee a portion;
were in danger of being plundered aud murdered,
perhaps, br certain gangs of marauder who had?
juat been disbanded from aa Alebama br'gade,' r
Ua the receipt of this alarming intelligence Mr,
Davis said to those around film: . "Gentlemen, my
wife and family are in danger, and I must go and
giv them what protection I can." - - '' ' '."
All the other gentlemen immediately mad) '
known their intention of aooompaaying him.-
Tbey immediately pnt (purs to their Uorsea, and.
rode off in search of the other party. It being a
dark and stormy night, and sis the eountry ; was a
strange one to Mr. Davis and his suite, and having
no guide with I hem, great difficulty was experienced
in getting on the right track of the party. How
ever, after a hard rid of over twenty-two miles;
tbey overtook them. Th following er tbe two
parties journeyed oa together, aad night earning ea,
tbey chose an eligible locality lor ft camp, and pre
pared to make themselves as coroforteel at cir-
eti instance would permit Nr. Devi and bis
ily occupied a tent oa one side of a sow
wagons, wbil Beagan and ood, and twa other
encamped on the other side. , .... , .
During the journey of the day preceedins; the
ereting of which we are now speakiug, certain dr
eamitancee which seemed to them ae showing that
tb Federal trooper were not In their viciuity, lea
tbem to the belief that they were running;
no risk of capture If they encamped that night
Had tbey been aware of the real state of affairs,
they would not hav tarried in the place tbey did.
and would hare, la all human probability, eluded,
the pursuit of th Uaion troop.
However, they encamped. Jest about day
break, Mr. Reagan said he wa awakened hy load
reports of musketry which, seemed to proceed from
behind their position, at no great distance from
their encampment , The firing was growing load,
and louder, when, suddenly th Federal cavalry
dashed upon them from the opposite direction
whence the noise of tbe firing teemed to proceed.'
Some of the troopers dashed in en the side of the
wagons, where air. Davie and his family were,
white others galloped to th aid occupied by Mcv
Beagan and hi companions. , ,
Th latter told s Federal Captain who appeared
pon tb scene, that although b bad, as far as he
was personally concerned, no particular interest e
serve in putting aad end to the firing going oa be
bind them, nevertheless be would do well to stop
it, for as they bad no troops with them, the Folo
rals must be fighting among tlx marl at. ' The eflv
cer gave no credence to this at first, bat in the end
bs mast bare followed Reagan's suggestion, as,;
soon after hit departure, the firing nosed. In the
meantime Reagan's companions fled and made
good their escape, while, as be had himself resolved'
never to leave the country, be elected to retnaia
snd sbar th fete of Ate. Dvls, were it tci
death. .. .
Mr. Davis, Immediately on bearing tb Bring,
prang from tbe plaet where be bad been pawing
tbe night, and advanced toward Out door as task
tent : A he did to, thinking that tbe firing pn?
ceedod from tbe marauders of the Alabama brigade.
kr. . i. - uut I 1 In
tact with bis own small escort, Intent on plunder
aad carnage, exclaimed aloud. : Tbose (nea Jurw
attacked us at test; aureiy I have authority enough,
left to prevent my own men from killing on
another. Saying this be opened the month of tbe
tent and wa just stepping out, when hi wife, citk -r
beside berself with terror, and not knowing
clearly what were tb nature of her acta, or think-,
ing that tbe garment (night render him unrecogni
sable to bis pursuers, threw a morning gown ore
bis shoulders. At that moment he was captured.
It will be seen by the unvarnished narrative of
actual oecoiTenoee that the story of Davis being
caught in bis wife t pettlooalt was a sheet fabric,
tion, and that all tbe stories of hi running Into
the woods from the pursing soldiers ar equally a
false tine it appear from the statement or one warn
wa present at th tim that th principal cause of
Mr. Davit going out of hi tent was, first, to obtain .
possession of bis revolvers, which, for the firt ulght
line bis flight, be bad left In the holster On the1
saddle of bis horse, that be might provide against
th danger b would incur in carrying out hit Uw,
tention of endeavoring to put an end to what h
thought was a deadly strife between his own men.
Mr. Reagan further say that, bad tb laflto not
been with him, they would never have been UkenY
without firing their last shot, as they bad so rcaolr-
ed on commencing their flight. Th thought that
any resistance on their put would entail an lodi.
criminate slaughter of the ladies and cluldreu,
alons deterred them from Bring oa their pursuer.
This statement, we should think, should ttle aa
dispute concerning tbe capture of Jefferson Davis.
Tut reports that war so industriously circulated
throughout the country, after the fall of tb Con
federate capital, to th effect that Mr. Davie was
running away to parts unknown with an immense
amount ef treasure stolen from tbe Richmond
banks, Mr. Reagan annihilated, by relating an tit.
cideut which occurred during Mr. Davis flight
Tbey were talking about what money tbey bad
and for some reason it wa ropoed to lave tigate
the richness of their value. Mr. Davis aountea
hit money, and founl that be had a little over $17

treasure the radicals bar bowled ihenitolve hoarse
