constant blundering, and the
last year's final surrender,
have made the Democratic

This is both able and honest.
These are our sentiments. We

which ought to make the party
forever Infamous-in our history.
Mr. G. says everybody ought

he says if the rest do not, he
will stick to it in death. That

[From the Nashville Journal, July, 1873.
The Cholera in Nashville.
We printed it in
our Journal, reprinted it in
pamphlet form, and sent It
broadcast through; the land,
proving, so fir as proof was
possible upon such a subject,
that no one who abstained
from fruits, vegetables and an
imal products, died of cholera;
that not one died here In 1849,
1850,1854, or .1866; who thus
abstained. And now we re
cord again, that not one has
died berev who so lived, and
that we can repeat what
published in a cholera pamph
let; in 1866, that one has it
absolutely in his power to
save himself in this disease.
We said, in 1850 and I960,
that we claimed ic as an origi
nal discovery, that cholera
would not prey upon one who
had no fruit, vegetables nor an
imal products, in his stomach.
And now, to-day, our whole
population believe it, and not
one death, in all our city, of
which anything is known, that
is not traced directly to a want
ol a knowledge or obedience
to this law. Mark me, every
deahll And not one death has
occurred among those num
bering more than twenty thou
sand people who ate no fruits,
nor vegetables, nor animal
products, during the existence
of the scourge. No, not one!
Wo have had no contemptible
practico here, as all know, lor
a quarter of a century, and not
one ot all the people to whom
we are physicians in ordinary,

A terrible cutting and shoot
ing affray took place last Tues-
ay forenoon m Buckskin
township, two and a half miles
west vof . South , Salem, on the
etcrsburg road at a place
cooinionly ' known as "Frog
town." One statement of tl e
flair, as reported to us by
parties from Buckskid, is as
follows: Mr. . Noah Grove, a
wealthy farmer, had for some
time past a tenant on his place
by the name of Johnson. Wish
log to rid himself or this
man, he found it necessary to
proceed against him according
to law, Johnson refusing abso-
utely to move away peacea
bly. The writ of ejectment
was placed in the hands of
Constable James il. Suggs,
who apprehending (rouble,
took with him two deputies to
assist in enforcing the writ.
hey were met by Johnson
with curses and fearful threats
obnson said among other
lings that he wanted to kill
tree men before he died. Fi
ally, however, he mado a
show of acquiescence, and
bile the constable and his
deputies were quietly retnov-
10 goods from the house,
Johnson quietly slipped up
behind Boggs and struck him
n the back ot the head wilh
n ax, making a dreadful gash,
seven inches long, and reach
ing into the brain, tie then
struck him again on the thigh
Completely 6feveridg the thigh

t one of the deputies, when
the other deputy Mr. Neeley,
drew bis revolver and fired at
him four times, only one ball
taking effect. The ball struck
ohnson in the breast and pass
ed down into the lungs, lie
was then seized, handcuffed
and taken to IKe house of Mr.
lobert Lavery, where he was
guarded over night by liobert
Patterson nnd others. Mr.
Boggs was taken to Mr. Samu
el Braden's, where he was at
tended by five of the best phy
sicians in that vicinity. They
did not expect him to live
through the night Johnson
has a very bad reputation in
that neighborhood. Ileiscori
sidered a very lazy and worth-
ess fellow. There ia intense
excitement in Buckskin town

A report of repeated outrag
es lately committed upon the
property and family of a man
named Bolen living near
Cheshire have reached us.
First, property was destroyed;
then in his absence his wile
was assailed with missiles as
she stepped outside the door,
by two men who 6b e thiuks
were white with faces blacked,
one stooe struck her but she
was able to get hold of a shot
gun and fire at them as they
ran off. Again, Mr. B. who is a
carpenter, being engaged at
work here, his house was en
tered by two men, his wife
seized, and thrown on a bed,
and held by one while her feet
were bound together with
cords, then her hands by the
other, when a eun shot was
heard and the men ran away.

been hunlinz and had dis

Darwin, in his new work, on
"The Expression of the Emo

an interesting chapter ..on
blushing. This act, he tells hs,
is the most peculiar and the
most human of all expression'
Animals never blush, although
monkeys redden irom passion.
We can not produce blushing
by any physical means; it is
the mind which must be affect
ed; and blushing is not only in
voluntary, but the wish (a
restrain it increases the ten
dency. While the young bbsb
more freely 'than the old, in
(ants do not b!u&h; women
blusil more than men Ihe
blind and the deed do not es
cape, it is usually the fac,
ears, and neck only, thai red
den; the blush d3es not extern!
over the body; but certain
races who go hnbilually naked
blush over their arm3 and
chests, and even down to their
waists. The limitation oi blush
ing to exposed parts is easily
explained by the fact that these'
portions of the surface Lave
been habitually exposed to the
air, light) and alternations of
temperature, by which the
small artenea acquire the hab
it of readily dilating or con
tracting. Hindoos, blueh but
little; the Clnnose rarely blush;
the Polynesians blush freely,
Ihe young cquatf ot our Amer
ican tribes lias been seen to

to pass delegates at half fare
to and from the Convenliori.
What does this mean? Ilavs
