FRIDAY MORNING, NOV'R 9, 1866.
New Goods. The new advertisement of
Meetsrs. Ward & Shafard will attract at
tention especially the attention of the
Architecture. Mr. LeMoin has taken
Mr. Williamson into his office, and hereafter
the firm will be LeMoine & Williamson,
No. 11 north Cherry street, Nashville P.
O. Box 375.
More Potatoes. We are indebted to
Maj. Geo. T. Allman for a sack of very su
perior potatoes. They weighed from three
to five pounds each. He has fifty bushels
more of the same sort.
A Good Sale. The Ballentine Tract,
which lies adjoining town on the 60uth, con
taining 1,043 acres, was sold in four tracts
on Monday at nn average of $90 50 per
acre. One tract was bid off by our energet
hic young friend, Andrew Ballentine, at
$100 per acre. Two store-houses, five
Btore-house lots and four office lots were
also sold for an average good price. The
family residence was bought by Mrs. Bal
lentine for 810,000. The tract adjoining
town on the north brought $36 per acre.
Tho land was all bought in by the lega
tees of the estate.
The Price of Pork.
There lias been considerable enquiry and
speculation as to the priceof pork in this
market. If we were dependent alone upon
our own resources, the demand here would
perhaps overreach the supply, and ths price
probably be as high if not higher than last
year. Bui neighboring counties have mfde
bountiful crops and fattened a great many
hogs, and they will supply the deficiency
here. The Shelby villa Repullkan says the
price there last year ranged from ten to
twelve cents, but this year it bids fair to be
two or three cents lower, with a larger
quantity in market than usual.
Drs. Grant & Abernatut. By refer
ence to ihe card of these gentlemen it will
be seen that they have changed their office
to the old printing office building, near the
Presbyterian Church. We join the popu
lace in an expression of gratification at the
success of our physicians during the past
summer, and especially during the 'cholera
epidemic here. Not a single case of cholera
was lost by any of them in which they were
called in reasonable time. The eminent
successand popularity of the two mentioned
above, since their association, about a year
agowill be peculiarly gratifying to those
who shared the camp and the bivouac with
them during the late war.
The election for Representative was a
failure in this county on Thursday, 1st inst
By some oversight or misunderstanding
polls were only opened in one or two dis
tricts, and in these the election was illegal
ly held. This will be regretted by all good
citizens, from the fact that it not only
cheats us out of a representative in the
present important session of the Legislature,
but manifests that the people have grown
apathetic and indifferent to all matters of
public concern. True the laws governing
elections in this State are burdensome and
outrageous but it becomes us to remedy
them by defeating- their advocates at the
ballot box even under their own restric
tions. This can be done very easily, if the
people can be aroused to an effort. There
is a conservative element even among the
privileged few of this county strong enough
to defeat radicalism; and it is 60 with all
the counties of Middle and West Tennessee.
The only difficulty is to convince the good
people of the fact that thev are 6trong
enough to defeat radicalism at the ballot box,
and thereby secure the repeal of all odious
laws now disgracing the 6tatute books of
The Fair Grounds are to be sold Dec. 3d.
Public Speiking Education.
In order to pursue il,e advantages which
resulted from the '"Educational Meeting"
held at this place on .Monday last, and at
the earnest solicitation of many ladies and
gentlemen who feel a deep interest on the
subject,. Jko. C. Lester, Esq., Col. Solon
E. Rose, Capt. Nath. Adams and Gen.
Jko. C. Brown have consented to address
the public at the Court House on Thursday
nitrht 15th inst. The larare hall in the
court house will be comfortably warmed
and brilliantly lighted, and it is hoped and
believed that all, including ladies and getle
men, who feel interested in the great sub
ject which is to be ' discussed, will lend
their presence to the meeting, and material
encouragement to the cause. Remember
Thursday night, 15th inst
Da. Con. Perkins. The friends of Dr.
Perkins will regret to learn that he has de
termined to make Williamson county his
future home. We bespeak for him the
kindly regards of those with whom bis lot
is to be cast in the future. We refer the
reader to bis card ia to-day's "paper, from
