A late number of the Richmond Dit-
patch on our table containa Ibis item :
" The Governor has appointed K. Uudley
Frayser, of Memphis, Tenn., and R. E.
Brown, of Philadelphia. Commissioners of
Deeds for Virginia in their respective
States." As far as Colonel Frayser is
concerned, we can say this is a first-class
selection. He is on of the never fail,
ever die, sort of young men who is
bound to succeed at anything he under
takes. A desperate character, named Grim
mett, was arrested near Bell's depot and
lodged in jail at Brewnsville last Tues
day. He had beatea one man nearly to
death near Clarksville, and when cap
tured by the Sheriff of that county defied
him and got away. He had been laying
around loose some time, and caused
ome citizens considerable uneasiness,
for it was known that he would stoop to
almost any cowardly aot He will b

A ' correspondent writing to ns from

the event of a rain, cotton is doomed to
lose many of its forms.' Should it retain
those already 00, thefcrop will be sur
passingly large. We believe the rust is

Th question of repudiating the State
dett having been sprung by Emerson
Etheridge, we learn that there is an ex
tensive movement on foot to settle the
matter by throwing the debt on the rail
roads, where the most of it belongs. Tbe
greater portion of the State debt was in
curred by issuing railroad bonds. If the
debt ia torned over to the railroads they
could meet it doubtless by issuing pre
ferred stocks, l which might be worth
fifteen or twenty cent on the dollar,
and eventually th bond holder would
get their money back. This is not repu
diation, and tbe movement may become

very full of men, womea and children.
The car was heavily loaded with people
returning from the race course, where th
base-ball match had been played. Th
shot caused great consternation, and
some gentlemen took charge of the mad
man and disarmed him; after that, th

Editoes LiDoza: Oa yesterday, while
all hearts were turned in the direction of
Bartletl's and other simultaneous amuse
ments of the most absorbing character,
we were attraoted hither to the above
place by one ef the most pleasant rural
social gatherings in the way of a picnic
we ever enjoyed. It was improvised by
the farming community of Bray's
Station, prominent among whom were
our genial and jolly old friend, V. H.
Swift, Esq., Mr. Tom Taylor, Colonel
Shelby, Mr. Persons, and others, who
won many thanks for the manner in
which everything was conducted.
The place selected for this delightful
affair was under the cool shade of a
large cluster of oaks, ia the beautiful
grove adjoining the very elegant country
residence ef your postmaster, Mr. Josiab
Deloach. A more deleotable spot could
not have been chosen, as it was sur
rounded on all sides by wide open fields,
which permitted the cool and refreshing
breezes to circulate freely during the
Despite the intense heat of the weather
and the intolerable state of the dust on
all the roads leading thereto, many came
some from quite a distance. Dancing
was made unusually pleasant and agree
able for tbi season of the year by the
regaling influence of the locality. The
one o'clock train haying arrived, dinner
was announced; and such a feast is less
oftener seen than spoken or written of.
All sorts of barbecue were piled up io
dishes on tbe groaning tables, while the
profusion of spring chiokjn, both fried
and baked, transcended the immense
fixings of a Methodist camp ground.
After having enjoyed this sumptuous re
past all soon found themselves again
wrapt ia the mazes of tbe dance, keeping
tine to tbe symphony of such enchanting
and exquisite musie that seemed almqst
to cause the braopbes of the old oaktrees
to incline in a listening attitude. T'here
was present the most brilliant array of
rnstip ljeagty we have ever seen on eov
occasion, ajid which may well be de
scribed by tbe following lines from
"Beauty: Ti the stainless soul within
That outshines the fairest skin."
We would beg your forb.earanpe,
Messrs. Editors, for getting so poetical,
for such a sight is apt to arouse the sen
timentality of most any susceptible youth.
We think that our fair country lasses
differ somewhat from young, gay city
belles, both in the healthy bloom of their
cheeks and, also, in tbe unaffected sim
plicity of their manners.
We will mention a few of those from a
distance. The very graceful and pretty
Misses Fanny B , Kitty R. and Miss W.
were there from Qertsantowo, aad Col
lierville was represented by tbe beautiful
Miss F.. and her no less admired cousins
Misses Cora and Mattie F. ; also, were
present Miss Sallie B. and sister, wbo
were bewitcbingly lovely. Miss Ida H.
was one of Macon's beautiful representa
tives. Early Grove and Mt Pleasant
each sent one of their most charming
belles Miss Bettie B. frota the former,
and tyiss O. from the latter place Tbe
two sister-beauties from Fisherville
Miss Alice M. and Miss Bettie of. were
tbe observed of all observers. And lastly,
hut by no means the least, were Miss
Jennie S. and Miss Alice H., fror? your
S ity, who were gyeatiy admired. Mr.
oseph A. Parker was the only gentle
man from your city, and seemed to en
joy it hugely. After dancing the whole
live-long day, the entire party was in
vited by Mrs. J. J. Bailey to her beauti
ful residence not far off, where the fes
tivities were prolonged through tbe night
In her bands we leave them, and wH
conclude by saying that this, wis' one of
the uiosl delightful days we ever enjoyed.

These medicines, so heavily advertised
and so generally used, are becoming more
popular every year. Twenty years ago,
or such a matter, Edward Wilder begun
to manufacture, on a small scale, the
remedies for certain complaints, which
have since gained a name and oharacter
for curative virtues in almost every State
in the Union. Mr. Wilder was satisfied
in tbe outset that be was offering genuine
articles to tbe public, and that tbey would
come into general use when well known.
To tbissnd he has used printer's ink ju
diciously ; the medicines were largely
advertised;. they lived longer than the
patent nostrums of the day, and people
naturally concluded there was something
in them. The different compounds were
tested and found to be all that was
claimed for them. Mr. Wilder's fortune
was made. He has one of the most ex
tensive drug-houses to be found in the
South or West, and tbe business is in
creasing every year. Read E. Wilder k
Co.'s column in this paper, aad then try
his remedies. They are adopted to our
climate and particularly to the class of
diseases which prevail at this season of
tbe year. "How much does it cost f is an
important question. How much does it
sost to have a spell of sickness and pay
the doctor's bills, to say nothing of loss
of time and incidental expenses. Bj
nsing these remedies sickneu way be
prevented, end. if ot altogether pre
vented, tnay be cured without paying a
heavy bill to yoqr physicians. Thea are
standard remedies, and f e d.0, not hesi
tate to recqrptnjDil Uena to our readers.

The Searcy (tVrk.) Eecord, of tbe 7th,
says : -
Ooe of tbe rnoit daring feats of high
way manship took place last Sunday even
ing 00 the old Memphis and Little Rock
road, near John McCrowl'g, abont eight
and a half miles th. side of Little Rock. '
The sufferer, Mr. E. M. Waller, of Hnr
risbnrg, Ark., passed through our town
00 Tuesday last, and we have the infor
mation from his own lips. Mr. W. was
aiming to go to the Indian Nation, with
a view to investing in ponies, and bring
ing them to the State; and having some
business at Little Rock, went there first.
Arriving there, he put his money two
hundred and ninety-eight dollars in gold ;
fifty dollars in silver half dollars, and
seveo hundred and eighty-two dollars in
greenbacks into the safe at the An
thony House, at the same time making
some inquiry as to the nearest routes.
Next day he slartnd on his way; reach
ing tbe point above mentioned Son
day evening about twilight Riding
along leisaraiy, with leg over the horn
of the saddle, wholly unconseions of
highwaymen being in tbe neighborhood,
he was unceremoniously jerked to the
groaad by some unseen personage. Upon
rising the highwayman demanded hia
money, at the same time drawing a large
pistol and firing at him, the ball pasaing
through the side of bis. eoar. This
brought to ligbt another higbwaymao.
wbo had taken chaa of Mr. W.'s aad-die-bags,
which, contained the money
and which he was then investigating.
F,e wanted to know what all that shoot
ing meant and at once drew his pistol,
aiming it at Mr, W. Seeing the dang&r.
ana oeing eiots at nana, he Knocsea the
pie.tol aside just as it was discharged, the
hall passing ihroueh the fleshy part of ,
bia left wrist. He then jerked loose from
the robbers, and commenced fanning. Tbe
robbers having his money moved off in
the opposite direction, and soon disap
peared in th woods. Both men were)
drestod t black, and looked like respect
a'sia" robbers. One was about six feet in
bight round faced, with a dark, heavy
mustache. The otber was about five)
feet eight inch" high, slim built, heavy
mustaoha, and had long, black, curly
ha'.r, Rowing over bis shoulders; rather
sallow complected, and whites of his eye a
rather large. Mr. W. offers &00 reward
for the deteotioa of the highwaymen, or
for tbe recovery of the money. His ad
dress is K M. Waller, Harrishnrg, Ark.
M. F. Maury, the reconstructed rebel,
he of the Atlantic charts and isothermal
lines, has come to the aid of Koopman
schaap. He writes from Lexington, Vir
ginia, to say that "Chinese labor
much more intelligent, skillful and effec
tive than negro labor;" that the Chinese
are "the most faithful creatures in tbe
world ;" that their importation would be
"highly beneficial to the South;" end
here is tbe nub of tbs letter the Profes
sor gives an order for "a coolie and two
house servants" to be selected from tba

spond to that suffering cry, he will hear
from the Professor again, but probably
in a very different strain- Exchange,
