kept up a diligent search. It was all
without avail, however, until a short

SPFIJStd II I LI. ITEMS.
CAMP MEETING AT POPE'S,
Four miles north-west of Spring Hill
commenced on!Fridav the 15th. Rev.
Wh. Burr, P. E., of Franklin District.
presided on the occasion, to the entire
satisfaction of the preachers, tenters and
congregations. Dr. A. L. P. Green was
present most of the time, and preached
with great acceptability, at 11 o'clock,
Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tues
day. The meeting progressed pleasant
ly, but quiotly, until Sunday night,
when a sermon of exeat power and
pathos, by Dr. Hargrove, the accomp
lished President of the Female College,
at Franklin, awakened tbe irreligious to
a sense of their danger, and to immedi
ate action, and aroused the professors of
religion, to their responsibilities, thus
opening up a new and progressive era in
the history of the meeting. Mourners
flocked to the place of prayer, the hearts
of Christians, were made to rejoice, and
from that period on, the meeting was
prosperous. On Monday night the Rev.
Wm. Doss had unusual liberty in preach
ing, and gave a fresh impetus to the
cause, and when penitents were invited
forward, about sixty presented them
selves, and but for the crowd and jam
around the altar, thero would have been
as many more. Rev. R. G. Irvine was
thero all the time, and rendered most
efficient service, but was unable to
preach, on account of sore throat, and
The meeting closed on Wednesday
morning, resulting in seventy six con
versions, and about sixty live additions
to the Church.
F1ELDIN HELM, ESQ.,
61 years of age, and his aged companion,
78 years of ago, were upon the ground
all the time, with their son CoL Hen
derson Helm, who was one of the
campers. Tbe old gentleman is full oi

fellow-citizen, Di. C C Crump, who is
rather older than any of the others, were
also among the campers. It is astonish
ing, with what vivacity ho converses,
and with what elasticity he walks.
Both of the above mentioned aged gen
tlemen, are old Jackson Democrats.

and couipleto in all its parts. Every im
provement on the grounds, shows that it

now predict, that next yoar, there will
be twice as many tents, as there are this
vear Blanton's Chapel will have a tent
next year the Blantons, Sanders,
Bunches, Glenns and Hunts will have
one, nor will ML Zion, with its South
all, bo behind, and the Baileys, Chan
dleks, Badgetts, and others, of Noapo-
lis, must and will have one, and Spring
Hill, although in another Presiding El
der's District, can not afford to be with
out a tent, in this beautiful and conse
crated grove, lor the people attend this
Camp Meetiug en masse. Here many
of their children' have been converted,
and around this spot their affections
cluster, and at this meeting they love to
linger, till the closing hour, and felt sor
ry when Hwas said, "this is the last
hour oi tho meeting."
We are glad to learn that Mr. Henry
Reams, who was seriously wounded by
a knife iu the hand of Wm. Carter,
several weeks since, is recovering very
rapid'.y. Carter has not yet been ap
prehended, and la still at large.

Tbe owners of the Saddle Stallion "Prince
Pulaski," offered premiums ef one ' hundred
dollars for his foals of 1871, and Capt. M. C.
Lampoell's beautiful filly took the first prem
ium. This filly also won the premiums in
the saddle ring, and the harness ring, makine
in all three premiums in full rings. One of
Prince Pulaski's daughters, the property of
John Orr, of Marshall county, took the premi
um in tbe saddle stock ring, as the best aged
sure; the premium as the best saddle horse,
mare or gelding, and in sweepstakes.1
The behavior of the boys at the Fair was
good, with a few exceptions. One of these
was the practice of shouting "Take .It off!"
"Take it off!" when the libbon happened to
be tied on a horse which happened . not to
please their fancy,nor belong to their crowd.
It la a most pernicious and Ignoble custom
and one that reflects very severely on the
young men of Maury. A large number of dis
tinguished gentlemen from other counties and
and States were present, and what a rjoor
opinion they must have formed of tbe chivalry
and knighthood of the young men of Maury, a
county they had heard of as containing all that
is refined, cultivated and brave! Such a cus
tom ban insult to the judges, who are sup
posed all to be gentlemen of honor and integri
ty, and an insult to the Directors.
A. J. McKeman, for John Overton & Co..
gave tbe 5S premium he took on his celebrat
ed Trotting Horse "Chief tain," to the Maury
County A, M,H.&L. S. 8. Such men ap
prehend the true benefits of Fairs, and desire
to maintain them. Some people imagine that
Fairs a money making institutions, and they
exhibit their stock solely for the sake of the
money offered as premiums. Tbe premium is
but. a email cons:deralion with intelligent
stock men; tbe gratification cf having their
stock acknowledged by competent judges to
be tbe best; the satisfaction ol feeling that tbey '
have improvel the breed of horses, cows, or
hogs; and the coot olation that tbe ir stack bave
gained a reputation which will prove remu
nerative. Many of our farmers have realized,
in an indirect way, thousands of dollars from
jhc d:0crent Fairs, and tbey bhould endeavor .
toa ustain them.

A very. interesting incident took place dnr-
ng the exhibition of sucking mare colts. Mr.
Rush Thompson's colt paced around the ring
number of times, at a very rapid gait, with
out even once breaking up. The large crowd
cheered the little thing heaitily. It was train
el in a rather singular manner: A negro man
plowed with its mother dining the spring and
summer, and in going to 'and from the field
be would put a plow -line around the colt's neck'
and start off on tbe move at a gallop, the colt
following as best it might. It can now pace
faster than its mother can gallop. This re
markablc colt is a daughter of "Slasher," prop
erty of S. A . Pointer.

: YILLE RAILROAD.
,!-.-, ..SAVANNAn.TENN., Sept. 10. 1871.
j Editors Columbia Herald; Within
a veryBhort space of time the people
between here and Memphis (and I am
reliably informed those of Memphis also),
have been worked up to a deep interest
in a contemplated Railroad from the
latter place, Via ' Somersyillo, Bolivar,
Purdy,. Savannah, Waynesboro, and
Columbia, to Nashville and Knoxville.
A glance of the map shows you at once
that this road would be! directly upon
the line from Norfolk, Va., to El Paso
and San Diego, which has been selected
for the route of the Southern Pacific.
A' , three feet, gauge contemplated
here. TheDirectors 6f4he" Little Rock
and Fulton Railroad, (styled the South-
em Pacific,) have decided to build their
road a three loot gauge, if they can get
and bold the subsidy of lands granted
them by Congress, which question - has
been referred to the Secretary of tho In
terior, and if he decides tho three feet
gauge to be a first class road (in the
meaning of the act granting the aid)
they will build their road that gauge.
And as a three feet gauge is projected
from Fulton through Texas to El Paso
ahdSanDiegtvand ftho ? Memphis- and
Little Rock road changes their gauge to
three feet, as they speak of doing, you
will see that twenty-one hundred miles
of the road is already narrow gauge, and
change of guage from Knoxville to Nor
folk is all that is required to mako the
entire line narrow gauge.
:Ik scams to be a settled fact that
broad gaugo roads carry, (in machinery
and cars) about one to one, of dead to
paying freight; that is. tbe engines and
cars of broad gauge roads weigh as
much as : the freight and passengers,
while Mr. Fairley, an engineer' of
great notariety in Europe, says that his
Narrow, Gauge (Cor which ho has. -straggled
so long) has proved to be a success
and that he can "carry 2 45 tons . on 19
tons of waggons' (cars) up ah incline of
on,e in eighty," and as many old rail
roads in the United States aire "changing
their roads from broad to narrow gauge,
there Is but little doubt, but that the
Secretary of the Interior will decido in
favor oi the Little Rock and Fulton
road. Wo ought then to feel encour
aged, and, use jpyerj efif .9 $Q
wnstructiooJf ttiglUffiantl groat tho-:
roughfare through the middlo of Ten
We ought to remember that this line
is about 500 miles shorter from New
York to the Pacific Ocean, than the
Northern Pacific, that it passes, through
a country free from the winter snow
drifts, (which so greatly obstruct and
delay freight and passage on the North
ern roads) and that it Is abovo tha contagious-diseases
peculiar to tho South
ern slope, and that instead of a railroad
like the Northern Pacific, which can
only run about nino months out of
twelve, wo will have an open and unob
structed lino from one year's end to an
other. But the advantages Of this line,
(of which our contemplated road Is des
tined to become an important link are
so decidedly in its favor that it seems
like folly to argue them.
Hardin county will give a grand Rail
road Barbecue at Savannah on the ' 14th
of next month, in tho interest of the
Memphis fc Nashville (or Knoxville, as
we sometimes call it,) Railroad enter

The night previous to the election in
Virginia for delegates to the convention
to decide as to the secession of the State,
was one of intense cold and heavy falling
snow. In Buckingham county, the can
didates to the convention were Httb-
baud, (Secession) and Fobbes, (Union).
Steeling Apperson, a noted character
and great fire-eater, had wagered several
thousand upon the result. In his Im
mediate neighborhood lived John Oli
ver, (Union) and Bill Oliver, (Seces
sion). About one o'clock of the above
night, just in the midst of a terrific snow
storm, Appebson was aroused from his
slumbers by one of his servants, with
the news that Mr. Olives had been
brought to the house by some of the ne
groes, whom they had found on the road
in a frozen, dying condition. Appeb
son quickly inquired whether it was
Bill or John Oliver. The servant re
plied he believed it to be John Oliver,
(who was Union). Upon hearing this,
Apperson simply turned over in his
bed, and remarked, "O d n him, let
him die." But the servant's indefinite
reply, as to which of the Olivers it was,
caused him to be uneasy, so he deter
mined to see for himself. To his utter
astonishment, he found the frozen, half
dead man to be Bill Olives, (a mud
sill disunionist). So soon as this was
seen, he exclaimed, in the loudest and
most excited voice, "Great God, send for
Dr. Eppes, a Hubbard man is dying !'
Mr. Oliver was placed In tho best bed.
given the kindest attention, and was
taken the next day In a carriage to Allen
precinct, voting place.

the paacl from the lock, whi A is not only con
venient but saved time and distance in driving
around to the gate in order to pass from one
fiold to another. It has many other slvants
ees over ather fences. All wo ak is for farm

SMITH'S TOiltC SYB S
FOR THE t'VRK OF
AGUE AND FEVER
OrChills and Fever..
The proprietor of tiiis celebrated m-dii it e
justly claims for it a superiority r ver all r-nr-dies
ever ottered to the public for the sara, tn
taix, sriuiT and pkhmanent cure of Ajtim mi
Fever, or Chills and Fever, whethur cf t,U rl or
lonjr standing. He refers to the entire Sonthi rn
and Western country to bear him t(.timonv to
the troth of the assertion, that in no exse w Cat
erer will it fail to cure if the directions are
strictly followed and carried out. In a reut
many cases a single dose bas beon snrLcicnt
for a cure, and whole families have been cured
by a single bottle, with a perlect restoration of
the general health. It is,- however, prndont,
and In every case more certain to cure, if iu
use is continued lu smaller doses for a week ir
two after the disease has been checked, more
especially in difficult and fcm-atanrlinf; cases.
Usually this medicine will n-t reqr.ire any aid
to keep tbe bowels in good order. - Should t'r
patieut. however, req tire a ollur.ic medicine,
after haviag taken three or four doss ot tie
tonic, a single dose of Vcll's VictTBH Kim
ilt Pills will be sufficient. ' '
