In Nashville, and the two olde-t in the
southwest. In lieu of the modern style
of hyphenated nomenclature, now popu
lar In this country, each paper de-lriiig
to retain its identity, a single name was
adopted that of The American. It is a
xood title-, broad aud comprehensive in
its meaning. The publishers say that
no pecuniary embarrassments prompted
the union, but business judgment, based
upon the fact that Nashville newspaper
projects had been pushed beyond a sup
porting point ; and that with united cap
ital and brains, and a circulation the
largest yet ett'.-eted by consolidation in
the south, the American will be a paper
worthy the patronage of the Southern
people. The Anttrieaii will purine the
policy of its predeeessors, advocating the
principals of the democratic party. The j

Ho lacked funds, and desired to borrow
of Ids friend Sinoule. Tho latter asked
him how much he wanted. To use his
own words, which Mr. Sproulc very well
remembers, ltaUtou replied :
"I wnnt to go like u white man, and I
think It will take about three hundred
Mr. Sproulc told him that he thought
he could let him have that amount, aud
in n few days gave him the money. Hal

was nst as good without the note as
In two or throe days after rcceivingthe
money, ltnlton departed for thn new

In-lile of a year, and before his .depar
