Cameron,; Grisr fc o.--Last -week we
neglected to call attention to the advertise

Fcbs. We can tell our lady-friends
where to find the largest and most attractive
stock of furs to be found in the West. They
are advertised in tordav's paper, and are
kept by, Messrs. Green & Green, No. 47
College street, Nashville. If you do not
believe ) they are fine and cheap, we in vita
you to call on our better part and examine
a eetof them. We are a poor judge of 6uch
thiDgs ourself,' -and a thousand-dollar set
might be palmed off on us for fifteen; but
we know that you are good judges, and we
invite you to call and examine the furs and
: i '11 1 .) J Tie Country Press. 3 7- '
The following truthful article ia taken
from one of the ablest papers in the country:
"Our duty is too often overlooked. Go
into one balf of the ; houses of the country,
and there will be found New York and
Boston papers, Philadelphia magazines and
foreign literature of every kind; while
newspapers interested in advocating the in
therests of the State and their own county,
not one can be found. Thjs is grossly un
just. If a man has five dollars a year, ten cents
a week to spend for. information and. litera
ture for his family, his duty as a citizen is
to take his own State and county paper.
Let him imagine, if he can, what his State
would bo without a paper within her bor
ders, and then ask himself what he is doing
for theirpftupport r rr
ciutj6o'a;ie excu3ertVe'rasel.? di'tcga
metropolitan paper, on the ground that they
contain more reading matter than those
published at home. True enough simply
for the reaeon that tley are supported.
Every dollar cent to foreign newspapers. by
a citizen who take3 no local paper, builds
up that foreign paper At the expense not
only of his own local paper,' but the inter
ests of his own State and county.
We do not ask this for the local press as
a matter of charity, but of j ustice. A good
paper can do more goodfor a town. than
any town can do for a paper.' But! few ap
preciate the local press as they ought.
They overlook the fact that its conductors
are the most self-sacraficing men in the
country. From one year'e end to another
they devote their talents and energies to
the building up of their localities, even to
the neglectof their own pecuniary interests.
Yet the local press is sneered at, and
given the cold shoulder, forgetting that the
little pebble U as necessary for making the
mountain as the bold or huge mass of gran
ite. The local press holds as important a
position as the rill does to the river which
goesoceanward. It is bad policy to starve
them to death, as it would be for the mouth
of the stream to dam up the fountains from
which it obtains its supply. "i
The interests of the city press and the
local press are identical, and they should be
fostered alike.' as each has its'woik to pet-
form in its peculiar, province. The con
duotora of the country press may some
times err in judgement, or fail to carry out
dhair plans to"W XullesL extfotbut the
metropolitan preps is open to the same
charge. We repeat, that it is the first duty
pi every man a duty that is imperative
to 6ustain his local piess with a liberal
hand, and not to let it languish for want of
jhat support." . -
