Eastern Division of the State. Some
time was spent there in admiring the

in examining the lands which have

that has been done. The work con
sists of four large kilns of burned

that has already beeu paid out aud the

Yesterday morning at 8:30, the Lee

President Humes, and a number of
other gentlemen, visited the East Ten
uessee University aud spent about
three hours examining Into the opera
tions of that admirably couducted in
stitution. They first visited the
Chapel, which they found well filled
with young men and boys, who will
compure favorably with the students
of any institution in the luud in point
of general appearance, intelligence
and scholarly proficiency. The exer
cises there consisted in reading the
scriptures by l'rof. Kirkpatrick, sing
ing a nymu by tbe students, aud a fer
vent prayer by the worthv President
of the institution. After this, ora
tions were delivered bv Mr. Kenharr
of the Freshman class, Mr. Gordon, of
the Sophomore, Mr. McLemore, of the
Jnnior, and Mr. J.W. Caldwell, of the
Senior class, the two lost being origi
nal. They were all exceedingly well
delivered and reflected credit unon the
young gentlemen mentioned, as well
as upon the I'rofessors to whom they
' uiuiveu mr instruction.
1 he students then renai red to their
several recitation rooms, aud the visit
ors divided out as their inclination
led them, some to hear recitations in
mathematics, others iu the lamrunees.
etc. About one hour was siient in thu
way. We heard but one ex rtressinn In
regard to this nart of the exer,-iue
and that was oue of satisfaction.
