Xhe three great staple articles of cotton,
rice and sugar, will be blotted out of the

Published at Nashville, Tenn. : $Q per an
num. Address J. D. B. Da Bow, Editor
How rr Works. The practical working
of the irrcverend Wm. G.'s illegal, unwar
ranted and outrageous assumption of dic
tatorial powers, is exemplified iu our coun
ty affairs, as presented this week in tbe
Court room. In March last, there was held
an election, which conformed in point of
time, and every other particular, to the law
prescribed, at which certain Justices of tbe
Peace were chosen. Tlie certificates and
returns were all made out in due form, and
forwarded to the Secretary of St ate prompt
ly. On Monday last only two of the num
ber chosen, Messrs. W. Stockard and Wm.
HcKissaek, of the 7th civil district, had re
ceived their commissions. On Monday
last the terms of many of the' J ustices, ex
pire by limitation, and thus the county
will be left without a quorum for transac
tion of business. We have not been able to
ascertain upon what ground the other com
missions are withheld, if his infernal low
ness has ever deigned to giva a reason.
Nor can we conceive why Messrs. M'Ktssack
and Stockard should be commissioned alone
of the whole number elected unless it be,
that they live in the same district with and
are neighbors of, tbe ex-Brigadier of the
Minute-men, w ho now draws pay at Xash
ville, under tlie false pretense of represent- i
Ing this county. t any of these Justices
have been furnished with any reasons or
the withholding of their commissions, we
would be very glad if tliey would furnish
us with them. We have a curiosity to
know what manner of excuse can be con
cocted for so inexcusable an outrage. We
wish that some of the Justices woukl sue
ont a writ of mandamus, and bring the mat
ter before the Supreme Court.
A constable, elected for the 1st district,
appeared before tbe Court on Monday, but
the, Justices declined to induct him into
office, because he had been elected since the
passage of the Disfranchise law. So we go.

After the secession of Messrs. Dillahv(
ty and CARjmiEits, Mr. Haedix edited the
Leportcr for nearly a year, w hen, owing.to
an unfortunate difficulty In which be be
came involved, ia which L Newton Tob-
TEn aiid Williamson were killed, he left
the State. . Iu a fchort time thereafter, Jo
seph IIfbxdox and Wm. G. Youxo pur
chased the Reporter office, and established
- - "THE TELF.GKAl'lt,"
which they only kept np about a year, and
sold the materials to parties who removed
them to Paris," Ten n. Thus Coumbia was
again left with but one paper.
In 1S20 Mr. Estes sold an interest in
the Columbian to A. O. P. Nicholson, and
the name of Mm rvirvr -was rTinnrpd to
. . "THE MEKCVKT."
This partnership continued two years,
when Mr. Estes sold out hi. interest to Mr.
Nicholson, who, after continuing the pa
per alone for a little while, associated with
him one Samuel D. Friebsox, the late ac
complished and lamented Chancellor. Un
der this management the Mercury continued
until 1S3L when they sold out to M. G.
Lewis, Esq., who changed ihe name to
In a short time Mr. Lewis associated with
him F. K. Zollicoffeb, and the name was
again changed to
"THE COLUMBIA OBSEBVEB."
At this point in our narrative, appears
another of the names that have won for
themselves the admiration and respect of
their fellow-citizens, and a more than local
fame. Among the letters collected and yet
preserved, Is the following from Gen. Zol
NAennLLi!, Dec. 21, 1959.
Dear Sib: I will cordially furnish you any re
collections I have, in relation to tlie newspapers of
Alaury county but tear niy knowledge does not go
back far enough to be of much service to you. Wm.
Hardin was editor of the "Columbia Reporter," at
the time he and his brother killed Porter and Wil
liamson ( probably 1825 ) but I do not know when the
paper was established. At tne same time An
drew Havs edited a paper, called, I think, "The Co
lumbian." In the latttT part of 1825, Joseph Hem
don. Ew.. and Wm. G. "1 ounar pnrchased the Ke-
norter"oHice and established the "Telesraph." which
I thcr printed and edited about a year, and sold to
parties wco remorea tne establishment to J ans,
Tennessee. Ilow Ionr the "Columbian"
ed I do not know, but I think your father
Fu'erson. Esq.. boucht th materials ot
and established a newspaper called the "Jlercurr,1
probably about 1830 or which they edited till
the eprilig of 1804, when they sold to II. G. Lewis,
Esq., who, for a few weeks, printed the ''Examiner'
when 1 bought a half, interest of Lewis, and we es-
tabusIiedue."Uolumbi4 Ubserver, In ltJa Lewis
sold his interest to Wm. Fields, andin 1S37.1 bought
whoinCenth snared longer, and,;cal!cd at
Iaet on the field of glory. :rrr-
. At different times, otherpapers havcben
published here, some of ,a Jitt
some of an aTiculgufal euirc4rv bksi
a number of little comic affairs. Especial
Iv do we mention the "Socthekx Cultiva
toe," a semi-monthly jouriia devoted to
agriculture, established iu lS39,bj- D.jClat
tox" and' Entscquently coctLiul-iil Iyi Jt
Zollicoffer, which, for ability and inter
est, has few equals, and no superior, among
similar journal of thpFeaitH-1y- f&t
Gcaedias" also or.ee jekl JbigrJk
among journals of its class, under the con
trol of Hector F. G. Smith. It was publish
ed monthly, and In a magazine style.
In 1S17, June 21st, Messrs. Hubbard fc
nuTTox established a daily paper, neutral
in politics, and called the
-- - ' "'! AILT HEEAXDf"
It was a spicy news-sheet, and deserved
a much longer life than it lived three
months, Fron its .-columns wo learn that
there were then published herenlso th Oo
scrvesj The ' Beacon' (predecessor to the
Democrat, we suppose,) and the Temperance
Watchman. We have been unable to gain
any definite information concerning their
history, however. ' ;
This Is, so far as we have been able to
gather, tbe history of the newspaper chan
ges in ( this place.. .,.We are aware that tbe
sketch is exceedingly imperfect, and per
haps in some points incorrtct, but we pal
lish it as it is, ia the hope that; some ol! our
readers may furnish us with" the missing
links in the chain. An old paper, if only a
single copy, often contains information,
which it would be in vain to question all of
the witnesses who were conversant with
the facts w hich it details. . It any of our
readers have such, we would be glad to see
them, as it is our purpose, if we can, to gath
er the material to re-write "this lrttlc sketch,
entering more into detailsfand thereby
rendering it more historical it not more interesting.

: We are indebted to aii experienced farm
er who baa often tried it, (and we recom
mend it highly) for the following recipe
for washing wool:
Mb. Epitob: As 'this is the time of
year for shearing sheep and washing the
wool, it may prove beneficial for the farm
er to know that a dilute solution of muri
ate of ammonia, will thoroughly cleanse
It' from all impurities. U4 obovt or,e
pownd to ten gallons of water this will
yrash about one hundred pounds of wool.
"THE COLUMBIA DEMOCRAT,"
mentioned in Gen. Zollicoffer's letter,
was continued, so far as we can gather, up
to 1840, when Mr .'.Thompson sold out to
Mr Axdrew M. Kerr, who again changed
"IHE TENNESSEE DEMOCRAT."
And on the 21st of March, 1S11, he cm-
ployed as editor C.J. Dickersox, Esq, so
long known, so much beloved, so deeply
lamented, by the older citizens of Columbia
and people of Maury County. After a year
of employment, Major Dickeson became
the owner of the paper, and continued to
edit and own it alone, until the 19th of Oc
tober, 1S13, when he sold an interest to Mr.
Tnoa. S. Matthews, from Ohio, who, re
maining but a short time, sold back to Maj
Dickersox, M ho edited and owned it until
1SU, when tlie establishment was sold to
Mr. John H. Rogers, but the editorship
retained by Maj. Dickersox, until January
16, 1S45, when he retired finally from the
editor's chair. His connection with the
press was longer than that of any other,
save Mr. Walker, whom we have yet men
tioned, and he establislted the reputation of
his paper throughout the State. The man
agement of its columns during the memo
rable political campaign of 1S41, was mas
terly, aud won for him many well deserved
The Observer, as we have seen, passed
from Gen. Zollicoffeb into the hands of
Messrs. ItosnoROUGn, and was sold by
them to Mr. II. A. Kidd, who in turn was
succeeded Messrs. W. & Jxo. E. Hatcher,
who changed the name to
The maubt ixtelligexcer."
Here again appears the name of one who
has since gained no little fame as a writer,
and the only one of the Columbia editors
who has stuck to the pen. He is now, we
believe, at work on the Mobile Advertiser
The Intelligencer in turn gave place to the
under the management of S. W. Mitchell
W. S. Fleming, Esq. This paper, we be
lieve, was continued about three years,
when it gave place to
The COLUMBIA mirror,"
Jxo. E. Hatches, editor. After several
years, Mr. Hatches sold out to Messrs. X.
R. Wilkes and Jas. E. 'Johxsox, and in
1S59, Mr. Wilkes retired, and left Mr.
Johxsox sole editor and proprietor.
The Xashville Combination. These
popular actors have been favoring the lov
ers of amusement and fun for the past week
with a "series of first-class representations.
They were received on each, appearauee
with full and appreciative audiences. They
will remain for several nights yet, and we
trust our people will continue to give them
