FRIDAY MORNING, NOV'R. 9, 16C6.
College Meeting last Honday.
Pursuant to anuouncement, a meeting of
tlie citizens of Giles county was held nt the
Court House io Pulaski on Monday, 6ih
inet., for the purpose of taking into consider
ation the educational interest of the com
munity and the feasibility of establishing
one or more good high schools at Pulaski.
It )3 a remarkable fact that there is but
one male school of any note in the Slate,
Cumberland University, at Lebanon, all, or
nearly all, having been destroyed during
the war; and it is estimated that, during
the past year, at least 860,000 was gent
from Giles county for educational purposes.
II A we a good school iu our midst this
expenditure would have been used at home,
and, toge their with that of students from a
distance, constituted a revenue to the coun
ty of at leant SI 50,000 or 8200,000 per
annum, aside from the advantage of parents
having their children at home. This, of
itself, is a great' consideration, aside from
the many other advantages to the entire
On motion of Maj.T. M. Joxes, Col. Aw.
Abernatuy was called to the Chair, and
R. R. Reed and Silas FtouRNor requested
to act as Secretaries of the meeting.
Col. Solon E. Rose delivered one of his
usual eloquent appeals in behalf of the
measure, urging upon the citizens .he ne
cessity of immediate and decisive action.
Gen.'Jfco. C. Brown and Hon Jas. McCal
lum also addressed the meeting, urging the
prompt cooperation of every citizen in the
A fund must be raised to liquidate the
indebtedness of the old College, and to this
end every one should put their shoulders
to the wheel and all work together to the
attainment of the end in view.
You should take into consideration that
your property will be enhanced in value
almost" two fold. Why is it that landed
property in the neighboring counties of
Maury, Rutherford, Davidson and William
son commands higher prices by 40 to 50
per cent, than Giles, when it is well known
that the land of Giles is the best and most
productive in Middle Tennessee? It is at
tributable to their Bchools and the enter
prise of their citizens. In each of those
counties there is at least one or more good
female sohools, while we have none.
There is every benefit to be derived from
the establishment of good schools, to the
farmer, merchant, mechanic and every
"branch of business and all citizens alike.
Without schools and other institutions of
public interest, we can but hope to ever
remain &t the foot of the hill of enterprise,
and retrograde rather than advance in point
of intelligence and refinement, and the youth
of our country grow up in ignorance and
profligacy. Then let us make a vigorous
effort, and place Pulaski and Giles county
at the top notch and afford our posterity
every facility for acquiring .an education
and give employment to those of our citi
zens so competent as teachers and in whom
we have so much confidence.

A larg8 number of citizen3 of Giles coun
ty assembled at the Court House on Mon
day, 5th inst., for the purpose of consider-
Piof the matter 'of the recent election.
On motion of Hon. T. M. Jones, Col.
Alf. Aeernatht was called to the Chair,
and R. it. Reed and Silas Flocrnot re
quested to act as Secretaries.
The Chairman briefly announced the
purpose of the meeting, explaining that by
virtue of the Governor's Proclamation an
election was held on the 1 st inst., for Repre
entative in the General Assembly. That
there are Ie63 than one hundred voters in
the county, by report of the Commissioner
of Registration. In consequence of some
misgivings, 'false representations and mis
understandings, the polls were not opened
in many of "the Districts; eo that there
could not he an expression of the sentiments
of the people.
Hon. Jas. McCallum then addressed the
meeting and presented the following reso
lutions: Resolved, That the people of Giles county
are desirous of manifesting their ready ac
quiescence1 in all measures calculated to
promote peace and harmony at home and
abroad, and the general welfare of the whole
nation, and that we are disposed to frater
nize with all law-abidiDg citizens.
Resolved, That the people of Giles coun
ty desire the services of our fellow-citizen,
John A. Jackson, in the present session of
our State Legislature, and to this end re
quest him to claim his certificate of election
thereto and take hia seat and serve as a
Pending the adoption of the above, a few
remarks were made by Hon. T. M. Jones
and Gen. Jno. C. Brown, endorsing them.
On motion, the resolutions were unani
mously adopted, and Messrs. McCallum,
Albert Buford, Hardy, Sanders, Edwards,
Hart and Chas. Abernathy were appointed
a committee to wait upon Mr. Jackaon and
inform him of the action of the meeting.
Subsequently the following correspond
ence was handed to us for publication:
Hon. John A. Jackson: The action of
the meeting held this day, to take into con
sideration the result of the late election, was
such as to urge the importance of your oc
cupying the vacant seat. In view of this,

a committee to tender you the considera

procure the proper certificate of election
and take your seat in the Legislative Body

from some cause, as I am informed by the

The Emperor of Austria is not satisfied
with the result of the late war. He has
learned no other lesson from his defeat than
that of an unconquerable hate and an un
dying desire for revenge. He is already
massing once more his legions. Every man,
almost every child, capable of bearing arms,
is to be taught the art of war, and measures
are being taken to render possible a vast
conscription of the entire population of the,
Austrian Empire. The dogged obstinacy
of the Hapsburgs is as rampant as ever,
and the otherwise eminently praiseworthy
young Emperor is determined to strike ont
more blow for the .restoration of bis once
mighty empire to her old rank in the coun
cils of nations.

A Valtjatile Recipe. A correspondent
of an exchange writes that six years' ex

shines like polished mahogany, will make
the soles waterproof, and also cause them to
last much longer than ordinary soles.

The Augusta Constitutionalist, of 18th

that illustrious Georgion one of the last

Republicanism a glory in the earth, and
live to see it a polution. It will be grati
