Seven Negroes. SInUe Their Escnpc.
I'ivc Since Itccnptnrcd.
On Monday morning last, at 10 o'clock,
eeven negroes confined in the jail at Clarks
ville, made their escape. They opened both
the inner and outer doora without breaking
the locks, and there are strong suspicions
that the locks were left open by the jailor.
Five of the number were afterwards recap

them, was shot in the hand. He then shot
the negro in the leg and succeeded in cap

To the Editors of tho Union and American.
Waverly, Humphreys Co., Nov. 13.
I notice in to-day's Union and American
an account of the fatal accident which oc
curred on the Nashville & Northwestern
Kail road, a few days since, which resulted
in the death of Mr. Richardson, a brakes
man, and wounding a little boy.
The little boy alluded to was the son of
the gallant and lamented Col. Thomas
Alonzo Napier, who fell at Parker's Cross
Roads, on the 31st day of December, 1SC2,
while fearlessly leading his regiment in a
desperate charge against the Ninth Wis
His little son wore the same name, and
wa one of the most promising and spright
ly little boys in the .country. He was the"
universal favorite of almost every one, on
account of his sprightliness and the many
heroic deeds of his gallant father.
He and his mother were en route to Cam
den, Tennessee, !o attend the burial of a
relative, when the sad misfortune occurred
His right leg was terribly crushed, result
ing in his death five hours after the acci
dent. The community sympathize with his
mother and relatives in their sad bereav
ment. Very respectfully,

A Truthful Description.
S.me of our citizens who were in the
habit of attending churclTduring the war
probably remember a military parson of
the rip-snorting, fire and brim-stone clas?,
named Col. Granville Mocdy, who came
here in command of an Ohio regiment.
He used, when hard pressed by people
fond of his style of pulpit declamation, to
give these who went to hear him noisy and
long-winded specimens of his unsurpassed
ability in that particular line. The Xer.ia
TorcMigJU gives the following highly com
plimentary and very truthful description
of this same Rev. Granville Moody : "He
may be suppoicd to have inherited the
temperament of an old-fashioned camp
meeting, and got it mixed up in his blood
with a modern torch-light proce?siou.
Wherf ho is, there must be wind, and
thunder, and volcanic eruptions, and carth
qnakra, and the ground torn up by the
Renounced tUc Epincoiinl Church.
Rev. J. V. Roger?, an Episcopal Ritu
alist of Memphi?, whose controversy with
Bishop Qjir.tard will be remembered by
our readers, ha3 renounced the Episcopal,
and joined the Catholic Church. Address
ing his Church, he says :
Grappling, however feebly, with the
manifold errors of Ritualiem, during the
past year, I determined eome monthsBince,
as you all know, to throw myself, heart and
soul, into the effort now being made
by the Catholic party in the Church of
England, to unite that Church with the
Church of Rome, but unwilling to do
anything stealthily, I preached and
wrote too boldly for my brethren,
and declared on the house-lop what
others admitted in private. Tho Bishop
sent his "interdiction," but was unable
consistently to try me; meanwhile my
studies and efforts convinced me, more and
more, that even if our clergy were ready
for such a union as that proposed, the peo
ple would, for the most part, split on the
rock ot private micrpreiauon, bo uih anvr
all. cur nartial success would only he a
oiiaji justification for future echisms, when
ever ambitious 'rulers, ecclesiastical or
civil, should grow restive under the cross ;
and therefore, after uialuro deliberation,
led, I humbly trust, by the Holy Spirit, 1
have determine! to renounce tho Episco
pal Chnrch, and leave the rest to God.
I believe the Ancient See of Rome to be
the center of all jurisdiction in my Mas
ters Kingdom, and humbly yield to con
victions which all my worldly hopei and
interests wonld disperse.
I.o Wheat In New Orleons
The New Orleans Picayune of the Hth
insL, thus refers to a concert given in that
city by Leo Wheat:
We listened with urapt attention to the
elaborate and carefully arranged conceit
given by Mr. Leo Wheat, at Odd 1'ellowo
Hall, ou Thursday night, in which he nit
only introduced himielf to our people as a
pianist of the highest culture and cf origi
nal genius but also gave us an expi-rimci-.t
of a fpecici cf cor.cwi with which wo have
hitherto had only partial acquaintance, but
which his permanent "tttlement amorg us
civea us tho hope that it will become famil
iar to our people.
Mr. Wheal s specialiiy h thrf piano, lie
has lent to it r. devotion, an energy, anil an
electrical esrneatnei-s which ab3Prl3 his
enliro nature. lie plays not the muic
merely as wriucn, but the thoughts uf the
composer; oi iticii composers a' were
themHelve'S full of feelings and ideas, which
could find utterance and expression only
in uiumc, and which expression is as plain
to those who have music in their ouls a
is speech to the ordinary mortal.
Mr. Wheat is for lhi3 reaeon devoted to
clafljicil music, acd the music of emotion
and expression. Ho plays to express his
own thoughts in the musical laiiKiisce of
another or his own, and for this he soars
into high air, and lose eight of f ubiiiuary
tliiniM. These who are possessed of mu
sical fouls soar wi'li him ; those ot more
practical turn cf mind m ly not have
pleasure fn such things, but Jhey cinnot
but wish that those whom thev love and
wbose uiinda they would have trained for
the future of life, chonld dwell with Mich
thoughts, and bo educated in a tatu o
ttherial and elevated.
Wc shall not nnderttiice to go through
the programme of the performance of Mr.
Wheat ana sue arusis wro assisieu uira me
other night. The music was all of the
very lest in seltcliou, and was periormeu
in the very bet manner by all.
Mr. Wheat introduces lis to classical
music, and desiens to give us a series cf
concerts in which the art of musical skill,
aided by crchetrai iff irta, shall make us
familiar with music which is intended to
educate us in the loveof harmony and melo
dy which must form the music ot the
sphere." We welcome his advent among
us with the greatest e.T.Htaclion.
We would add that his effjrts the other
night received the highest and most em
phatic approval from a very full, and not
only faphionable, but most critical audi
ence, which awarded him his true rani:

who has lately becu prowling about Edge

charged his fowling piece at the unknown
visitor, causing him to tkcedtddlc in a

groan, and thinks that he carried off on
his person a respectable load of buckshot.
It was only a few nights ago that a lot of

V The i'urf i inie.
The iS'cw York Tar, Field and Fanii
has in its issue of the Gth, an article on
"Time," ami as there are some strange
statements in it, arid I -furthermore, an
Issue'upon which so much is daily invested
during our racts, we propose, says the New
Orleans Picayune to make some remarks
upon the subject atate the best time at one,
two, three and four miles, and enable thoeo
but partially acquainted with the fide, to
make their investment with a better judg
ment. It is commonly staled that '' time is no
test of a race Jiohb." We dissent from
thia opinion, upon the ground that it is
only partly true and partly false, since
there ia no better evidence of the powers of
a race horse than Fashion's four milea in
7:32, George Martin' 7:33, Lecompt'a
7:20 or Lexington's 7:23 and 7:19.
Let us suppose for a moment that either
of the above named horses had never, met
a competitor that could have gone the dis
tance under 7:45, they would, therefore,
not have Incn necessitated lo make batter
time to win than 7:41, in which case it will
be clearly srea that their fullest power
would not have been developed, and timei
in this cafe, no test of their capacity, ao
that many a horse, like that "gem of purest
ray serene," may have had his excellence
buried, and in the dark to "die and leive
Many years ago, but still within the re
collection of many living turfmen, 1:40
was the best lime on record for one mile,
and when Flying Dutchman accomplished
it in 1:45, over the Bingaman Course, it
was received with uncommon demonstra
tions of admiration by an applauding crowd;
and, by" the way, it may not be ill-placed
here to remark and pay a proptr and de
served tribute to the memory of Mr.
Graven, who evinced a judgment and p kill
in his knowledge of the weather, the con
dition of the track and the powers of hU
hone, unequalled by any trainer. Mr.
Lecompi's Flying Dutchman, Mr. Ken-
ner'd Ilegira, and Capt. Minor'n Fanny G
were entertd in a race of mile heat?
trained respectively by Small, Grave and
Capt. Minor. The evening previous to the
race Prior, then training for Co!. I'ir.ga
man and now successfully in France for
Mr. Slieckler, met Small and Graves, the
Ihrte having been on terms of intimacy
for many year?. "Well, now," said
Prior, '"I don't bet much upon a rac,
and want you two to tell me something
about your hoMes. I should like
to make about ten dollars.' After
pome silence Mr. Graves at length replied
to Mr. Prior thm: "I don't exactly
known who will win to-morrow, but this I
will Fay Ifegira will run two heats to'
morrow, each in the fastest time on record."
The race came off, the Crt heat a cioe
contest between ITegira and Dutchman, in
1:45, the second lieit equally close in
1:49, Mr. Graves thm coming within
half second of the time of each heat, and
averaging exactly the time he riaim-d. This
improvement in time continued at all di
lance?, from Eclipse's deeat of Sir Henry
in 7-37 in 1823, to Lexington' cosquest
over time itself iu 7:19. And this is all
to be attributed to better brei din, better
training, better riding and better condition
of the track. To what further extent this
improvement in speed may hi carried i3
yd to be developed in the "seeds of time;
which grains will grow and which will
not," is now open matter for turfmen to
The fastest time made at mile heats, wan
by Revolver, in 1SCC, 1:44, also Mamona
at Lexington, 18G2, on 1:44. The Tvrf,
Fidd and Farm gives Legil Tender credit
for a mile in 1:11, but that paper ccknowl
edges the track thirty feet short of a rn'Ie,
and the lioraoi? neces-arily not entiled to
that time. Ilegira ran here at New Or
leans, a mile in a two mile dash, but with
catch weight, in 1:42; and let it be re
membered, that when bets are made on
time, tho full weight for age must b3 up, or
you c.innot win.
The fastest Iwo mile race on record was
Lancaster, at Lexington, 3:35 3:38.
Faste3t three mile race was by Norfolk, in
18G5, at California, 5:27. Fastest four
mile race wa3 Lexington's in 7:19J. The
Turf, Field and Farm has made a distiction
between the words "fastest" and "best,"
by considering tint time being the same,
or even greater, when more weight is car
ried, the horse chould have credit for a
better, not a faster race. But let the cun
ning in turf matters make such calcula
tions for themselves".

kets, but In a greater or less degree, upon all
branches of commerce The popular estimates
of the current American crop vary from 2,t00,
000 to 2.7SO.10J bales. Some of the Southern es
timates aro considerably below these figures;
though, making; all due allowance for draw
backs, wo are inclined to bclicvo that tho yield
will not fall below that of last year. Thocotton

December, resulted in a speculation that forced
prices in tbo spring up to a point that reduced
consumption largely, and left the trade, both ia
cotton and cotton goods, in a very-unsatisfactory
condition. The current supply in England. not
withstanding the heavy arrivals frm Bombay
in October, is tbout 175,000 bjlcs below the cor
responding period last year, with a strongproba
bility that asimilar disparity will be maintained
to the end of theyear. The rejults of lastseason's

dling upland, but whether these figures afford a J
ruuauie iiiuu 01 me iuiuro or not. remains to
bo seen. The best Englisti authorities do
not appear to anticipate any incroase of
supply during the ensuing year. From this
country, they seem to bo prepared for
a possibly small decrease, though they look
fpr an increase from .Egypt and Braiil. As to
tho extent of the Indian crop, all is, as yet, un
certainty, (ulSco it that , considerable increase
is looked for from the Oomrawutto and Dharwar
districts, but less from the Uhollcrah and Broach
districts, owing to thelosses by floods. A pos
sible short supply from alt sources, it is thought,
will bo counterbalance! by tho unfavorable
statoof manufacturing trade. On this point.
Smith. Edwards & Co., Liverpool, remark:
"Tho largo production of goods which has gone
on for some months, cannot apparently be taken
orTat any ndvance on present rates, and any
further riso in the raw material must be, ia tho
main, an addition to the serious Joss tho spin
ner and manufacturer bsustaining. Low as tho
pricoof goods now i., compared with tno raw
material, thero is no inducement to the mer
chant to ship to India. The accounts of tho
Calcutta market aro extremely bad ; a failure ot
the crops in tho central provinces threatens a
famine, and no relief can ba expected, till ex
ports from this bide aro much reduced. Wo have
seldom known tho news from India more dis
couraging than at present."
"The trade in goods, on both ide3 of tho At
lanti;. during tho present year, has greatly dis
appointed the hopes of manufacturers. Thtra
has been no buoyancy at any time, except when
imparted by tho rapid advance of the raw ma
terial, while every pauso in eolton, has at onco
been followed by a heavy market for goods.
Tho number of spindlcrs that could bo put in
operation, has been largo enough to havo
workedup moro than the supply, but the quan
tity of goods produced, woraing as they navo,
has evidently been in excess of tho demand, at
fairly remunerative prices. The natural infer
ence from these facts is, that unless the supply
of cotton proves less than the present prosptct,
tho prices, both of cotton and cotton goods, are
not likely to rule above the present currency.
As declining prices, like advance', often ncquire
an impetus which carries them beyond their
Icgitimato range, it would only be in accordance
with past experience, if values should tempo
rarily rule exceptionally low; though from tho
experience of last year, wo aro not likely to

during the week a goodly number of swine

somewhat restricted operations in this line.

immense corn crop to feed them, his in

opinion that etrly siles are necessiry to
