AGRICULTURAL. FAIR IX WILSON COUNTY.
We improve the opportunity afforded by the
publication of the annexed letter from Wilson coun
ty, to repeat the suggestion of the expediency of
.organizing, during the present se;ion of the Legis
lature, of a .State Agricultural Society,, with the
view of an annual fair at Nashville. We hope
some of the members, in connexion with citizens
of this and the other countic5, will take some effi
cient, steps in the matter during the sesilor.:
Lkhasos, Tenu., Oct 13, '53.
' E-U. Union and Americun:
This evening closed the second and last day of
the Wilson bounty Agricultural Fair, which was
the first annual meeting. To compare it with those
of other States, where experience has demonstrated
their great utility, and the whole people have be
come fully aroused to their own interest, would
certainly be unfair and illiberal. In those places
each vies with the other the year round, not only
that his name may be held up to the approval of his
friends and commendation of an admiring public,
but in the greatly itici eased value of any article he
may have produced in the time that would be
u?elcs:l3' employed, orcaielessly thrown away.
This a sufficient argument to recommend the sub-
' ject to the attention of airy one that has the above
considerations at heart; few there are we opine,
either ma'e or female, who do not As a commence
ment we may truly say, tliat we were most agreea
bly suqirited in the quantity, as well as quality of
the exhiliitiou. The first day (Wednesday) was
devoted, almost exclusively to the Laches. Uur
fair friends of Sumner county were represented in
a style characteristic of their discriminating tastes,
and shared largely in the receipts of premiums.
To-da3', the attendance was larger, in fact, a real
erotcd, and great interest manifested. The various
specimens of stock exhibited, caused we doubt not,
the heaits of the citizens to throb with increased
pride at the improving condition of their county.
As yesteiday, Sumner county participated com
mendhbly in the business of the day, the awards
being so equally divided as to give pleasuic and
increased interest to each.
If the advautage to a lew counties in Tennessee
is great,' ti fnct no one should doubt, would not the
increased, advantages 10 the whole State, by annual
State Fairs", be abundantly sufficient to enlist the
attention and eo operation of any county in it? Let
our influential citizens take the subject in hand, and
we arc sure Tennessee will not long be required to
follow in tho wake of her sisters.
Mexico. An able correspondent of the St Louis
Republican gives a very gloomy account of the con
dition of affairs in the Mexican Kepublic. He says
and in this he agrees with other writers that
Santa Anna ha tailed iu all his efforts to raise icv
enue, aud his government, like its predecessors, is
bankrupt, and without resources. He raised six
millions from the church by a forced loan, but failed
in a second effort to raise money from the same
source to the amount of S17,000,000. and now he
has undertaken to raise funds by heavy taxation,
which in Mexico always proves very unproductive
and unsati-ifactory. His scheme of raising an ar
my oi 90,000 men is a complete failure. Ho can
scarcely raise -10,000. Jobberies are very nume
rous, aud between fifty and sixty of the Iadrones
have been garoted for such oiTences. The soldiers
being confined and poorly fed, some of them have
turned robbers. Fifty cavalry soldiers in one par
ty deserted and became banditti lately.

I should like to indulge in a few reflections on
gone-by years. It-is known to many of the old
citizens of Nashville that it is now nearly thirty
fonr years since I made Nashville my adopted home.
My father was one of the first settlers of Kentucky.
During my boyhood there were no schools in reach,
i . t ii i .i i. r.i r nn nnj-ltr rxliirvi-
wuere i coiuii nave uie i
, , . - i .i
tion; consequently I was deprived of an early cul-
turc. After I advance.! to inounoou, ii. was a ueep
mortification to me to be deprived of advantages
that others were blessed with. I determined iu
my heart that none of my time should run to waste.
I cut myself off from forming associates, and every
hour that I could spare from the work "bench I de
voted to reading. My nighU were employed in
tho same way. Being poor' and not able to buy
candles, I was very careful to save all the cuttings
of ends ol plank, and such like, used to make light
instead of candles; and in this way I spent my win
ter nights for years. I call up these facts, hoping
that it may stimulate some of our young men to
put forth their energies. 1 see no good reason why
our mechanics should not avail themselves of all the
benefits arising from reading and reflection. It cer
tainly would afford them an amount of satisfaction
that they could derive from no other source, and it
will lay the founlation for goodness and great
ness. For many years I have devoted a portion of my
time to writing on Tarious subjects. Agriculture is
a subject that I have often dwelt onwitlia great
deal of interest, hoping that thereby I might bene
fit some one. Tho subject of a well organized sys
tem of common schools has occupied a large por
tion of my thoughts and deep reflection. Not be
ing blessed with an early education myself, I know
how to feel for others". Knowing that no poor man
can give his son a liberal education, let his talents"
be what they may. The expense is more than he
can bear. I am rejoiced to know that our citizens
arc awake to this subject, and that there is now in
erection a large and commodious building called the
High School of Nashville. It is true the present
system does not comport with my views. It does
seem to me thatif one-half of the amounthad been
expended in erecting a good common school in
ea;h ward in the city, where all might have equal
advantages of preparation for the high school, the
beneficial results would have been incalculable. In
this case, there would not be such a large body of
children thrown together. I for one think it better
to lay the foundation before the capstone is finished.
There is another subject that I have felt a deep
interest in, that is, of reviving and getting up a well
organized Mechanic Institute in Nashville, where
our young men might be furnished with boek free
of expense. In perusing those books they might
spend their leisure hours, in laying the foundation
for usefulness, and become ornaments to society,
and lav an example of goodness that might speak
well for them to generations yet unborn.
In connection with this institution the import
ance of having a well organized safety fund system,
where our mechanics might deposit, a portion of
their week's earnings, no matter how small it may
be, has often occurred to me. In the course of a
few years, in this way, there could be a fund raised
sufficient to build a factory almost of any descrip
tion, besidesliaving it in our power to relieve ma
ny of our brethren that might be in distress. In
my writings I have devoted a largo space in endea
voring to set forth the degradation that is brought
upon the mechaniisof our State by teaching rogues
and murderers trades in the Slate Penitentiary. I
am truly rejoiced to see that our present Legisla
ture is taking the subject in hand, and have already
introduced a bill to abolish the disgraceful operation.
I hope in God they will have nerve enough to car
ry it through. There arc many ways that the con
vict might be profitably employed to theState, and
disgrace no one. In a short time there, will be one
of the largest memorials addressed to the Legisla
ture that probably ever was addressed to so honor
able a body.
There are many other subjects that I have often
dwelt on with deep interest that I may take up
hereafter. Samuel P. Amext.
A CnAKCE For. Ireland The Exodcs. The Lon
don Times of a late date contains an interesting ar
ticle on Ireland. It alludes to the immense emi
gration that ha3 taken place within a few years, and
says truly enough, that the potatoerot of lS4Gpro
duced a social revolution greater than any war, con
quest or political violence has been able to accom
plish. It is stated that within the six years ending
March 1P52, no less than 1,313,22G persons left the
shores of Ireland. What an outpouring 1 How
many cities, towns and villages of the Xew World
have been measurably populated through this agen
cy! The number who departed in 1851, was 254-,-537;
in 1852, 224.997; or about a quarter of a mil
lion each year. So great and spontaneous a drain
is probably unexampled in the history of the world,
especially, says the 7imcs, when the fact of its be
ing across a great ocean, and in a time of profound
peace, is taken into account. The question natural
ly occurs is this condition of affairs likely to con
tinue ? The extraordinary drain of population can
not but have an important effect upon the rates of
wages, an 1 as these increase, will there not be
greater inducements to stay at home? On the oth
er hand, the very fact of brothers and sisters having
crossed the ocean in safety, and established them
selves in the United States in comfort, cannot but
induce many of those left behind, to follow in their
footsteps. This country, indeed, seems to be the
chosen abode for the emigrants and refugees of the
Old World; and while we continue to prosper, while
labor is in constant demand, and land in the far
west may be obtained at a dollar and a quarter per
acre, this disposition tojwander tojand settle in the
United States mut continue to exist.

Although I haw had mudh to .do in Cotton, in
this market, for several years past, I have not yet
conic to any' satisfactory pointsin tny own mind,
as to what the present crop may be, "(and this must
have great weight in the price in any event,) nor
what may Tje the course of the trade of the world
for twelve months to come. In the present state
of the world and its' expanded and expanding com
merce, few men can satisfactorily .anticipate what
will or will not occur. We may so far anticipate
as to control our individual transactions but not
further, however "long-headed" we may profess to
be. ; ,
If England ia short of food, and it-is to bear high
prices, wliicK now seems probable, the natural in
ference would seem to be, ina national point of
of view, that a sound economy would dictate all the
employment for her operators which could reason
ably be given them, in order that the public bur
dens may be the less; thus, by encouraging the
larger exports to fill up, as far as may be, the de
ficiency by les3 consumption. So far as this, coun
try is concerned, (always disposed to trade to the
extent of its means) it is reasonable to count on tis
as large buyers, as the increased prices of our pro
duce exported may enable us to be, particularly in
iron, (which we continually appear to want in
greater quantity than we can get) and manufac
tured goods. All these resources England knows
well how to cultivate, upon her extended free trade
basis, and the result may show her not much poor
er at the end than the commencement of the pres
ent vear or twelve months troin the present time.
I think it is generally admitted that the balance of
trade with Great Uritain is usually against us, in
view of our lamer amount of imports than exports,
and of the heavy amounts of interest on stosk3, for
which we have continually to remit
When England suffered the loss of 50 much of
her bullion in the last "famine year," as it has been
called, it may be remembered how soon she regain
ed it all, and more, from the moment her imports
of food ceased to be large, and price3 consequently
I think your Liverpool lettpr was written, not so
much with a view to make us perfectly and safely
enlightened in regard to our cotton interest, as to
carter for the advantage of the Manchester spinners,
who always compJahr-wlien our planters make a
little money a3 producers, and when they (the
-Manchester men) do not reap the whole profit from
a production of which the United States hold al
most the monoply of the world: and England is de
pendant upon usfor its commercial and manulactur-
ine existence more than, I had almost said, every
other article either of her own products or imports
put together. It is, moreover, the great regulator
of our foreign commerce and exchanges, and, as
such, entitled to more consideration than the tinan-
cial interests of this country have ever seemed to
consider or bestow upon it
In all my experience in Cotton,- it never was as
as well managed iu the United States as last year.
The value of the crop was decided and settled in
the large Southern markets, near the fields of pro
duction, where it justly belongs, andl hope the re
suit of last 3-ear may have taught our. planters and
their factors that it is as fairly in their hands to fix
the value, and it is far cheaper to sacrifice what may,
at times, be the excess of a superabundant crop.

THE COTTOX CROP,
Florida. We have been politely furnished with
the following extract from a letter of a highly re
spectable Physician in Alachua Count), to a gen
tleman of this city :
" During the last few weeks my practice lias been
quite extensive, and I have been in every direction
around this place, and I have on every occasion in
quired ot those who made Cotton, what they sup
posed their loss would be by the recent rainy wea
ther. Some few have put their loss at one-half and
some few again at one-fourth : but the large majo
rity of planters seem to occur in the opinion that
the loss is fully one-third. My impression is, that
an average crop, or one equal to that oi lasl year
will not be made in this section of the country."
Georgia. The Milledgeville Journal of the 11th
One of Ihe editors Im just returned from the
Cherokee counties, and reports the corn crop as
good, cotton poor, and without a very late fall,
must fall far short of the average product This is
also true of the cotton crop in the intermediate
Louisiana. The Bastrop Xorth LouManian saye,
concerning the crops:
"On a few plantations the cotton crops hav"e been
doing pretty well until the late rains, which have
caused it to shed its forms ; and on others small
bolls the size of a marble have fallen ofl" in great
numbers; and if the weather continues as showery
as it has been for the past two weeks, we will have
an abundance of the worm, judging from the quan
tity or the moth to bo seen now at work."

proceeding liom the effects of merenry, of Which she was

eminent and kind physicians in the city of New York. For
two wedu she was in the most agonizing pains, aud every
hour her friends expected that
DEATH WOULD BELIEVE HER.
ne'r physicians had no hope of her recovery. A bottle of
Ready Relief w s sent her, and applied, by the advice and
consent of her physician, who told her nurse, if nothing
else would give her case, lie thought that the Relief would.
IX FIFTEEN' MINUTES SHE WAS RELIEVED FROM
IX THREE DAYS SHE COULD LEAVE HER ROOM!
And before the second bottle was used up, was reported
cured by the physician.
If you are afflicted with Xcwralgia, Cramps, Spasms, it,
R. R. Relief will in a lew minutes allay the most violent
paroxisms. Wbererer-lhere is any pain, Radwaj's Relief
will remove it.
