A leper received from Mr. D. P.
Oii-i. cId- with this account of the
uri-iti frcwliet :
I Ik- water was u fo.it deep iu the
highest house In town, except that of
Win. Catlett, (it did not quite reach
the tloor of hi house), and from three
to four feet deep in ninny of (he house.-.
Mu-l of I he yaril and nrdeii
fences werexwenl away, and ihenlreets
washed down to the rocks. When the
river got Lack in'o banks, Sevierville
presented more tlie upp arance of a
neap or rubbish ivnd drift than that
of a viil.iwe
All the fein es alon the river, from
the nimi;u of l'ijieou to theuiouutaiiie,
was swept away, and a great many
cribs, stables, barns and prist and saw
uiiiU, together with till they contain
ed, were borne away by the angry
waves of our little river. A large
amount of corn, liny, &c, was washed
away, aud much that is loft is so badly
daui:iL.ed by the ovei tfow, us to be of
in:? linle value.
When the liver had reached the
hiils on either side of the town left
a-s we were without a boa: or even a
cairn" by which to make our escape,
tlie water being too" deep to ford on
iiorsi.. some of us felt line exclaim
ing in the lungutie of the poet
"Oir on an ocean all boundless we rid.'.
Tu.-.-id on the w.tvea of a rouiih reliefs tide.'1
And we were not sure that we would
ever teach the land beyond the waves
of the angry tide.
All our bridges are gone, and there is
nut a mill 1 -ft, but what sustained
more "r less damage.
I io loss to the citizen of Sevier

'o form any correct estimate of the
damage done. No lives were lost that I

At Sevierville, where the bottoms
aie wide, and where the water spread
out at lenr-t a miie, the river was IS

Wlieu I first cauio to New Vurk, at
he nge of twelve years, lo seek my
foi tune, I can call myself a precious
cbnp without danger of being accused
of an unusual amount of self-appreciation
I was quick to learn every
thing, the bad us well as the good. My
employer used profane language. 1
picked up the oaths that he dropped
with the naturaluess that surprised
even myself. The boys in the office
all chewed tobacco. This was little
the hardest Job 1 ever attempted, but
alter two weeks of nauBea and Inde
scribable sitoinach-wrenchltigs, f came
oil' victorious, and could getaway with
niv paper a day with tbe best of then).
One afternoon I was sent with a
not from my employer to a house in
'he upper part of the city. I hadn't
anything to read, but I had plenty of
tobacco, and with that I proposed to
entertain myself during the two or
three hours I must spend In the pas
sage. For some distance I did not no
tice who weie beside me, but by-and-by
a lady said very softly and silent
Iciitly: "Would you please, little
boy, lie more careful ? I am going to
a arty this afternoon, and 1 should
hate lo have my dress spoiled.''
I looked into her face. It was the
sweettst face 1 ever saw. Pale, earnest
and loving ; to my boyi.-h heart it was
the countenauce of an ungel.
There was vtry little that I could
say. I managed to dispose of the to
bacco, however, and wiped my mouth
very carefully, all of which 1 felt cer
tain she mi ir a lid mentally commented
"Have you a mother, little boy ?"
she asked iu the same tone.
"No, ma'am," I answered, and I
felt my throat tilling up, tin .i knew I
must swallow mighty fast to keep from
" You have a father, then. I sup
pose?" she kept on.
" No, ma'am, no father "
" Brothers aud sisters V"
' Neither, ma'am."
" Then the little boy is all alone in
" Alone, ma'am."
" How long has your mother been
dead?" aud the dear wotuau looked
away from my face, and waited until
I could speak.
"Two years," I answered.
" And you loved her," came next.
" Dearly," was all I could say.
She was silent a moment, and then
said, so sweetly oh, I shall never for
" And what do you think your dear
mother would say how do you think
she would feel to kuow that her lit
tle boy was guilty of such a disgusting
habit as this V" pointing to my cheek
where the telltale quid had vainly
tiied lo stand its ground. " I must

never .aj-sed my lips.
As soon as I could summon cournge
I calleil upon that lady. Well do I
leinetnber how my heart beat as I
waited iu tiie elegant parlor foi tier to
come down ; and how awkward I felt
as I followed my guide to the sitting
room. Here she got. at every point of
my life, and before 1 bade her good
bye it was arranged that I should
spend two evenings of each week at
her house, aud study on these occas
ions just what she thought best. No
lover ever looked forward to meet with
the mistress of his heart and more ar
dently than I did to these meetings
with my friend.
1 grew careful of my personal ap
pearance, careful of my conversation,
and strove iu every way to be worthy
of this noble friendship. Two years
passed in this delightful manner two
years that made me. My friend not
only attended to my studies, striving
alt the while to sow the right kind of
spiritual seeit, but she procured me a
situation witli a particular friend of
hers where I remain to this day. No
body but Ood knows what I owe this
woman, liming the last three months
of those two years I noticed that she
grew constantly pale uud thin ; she
never was betrayed in speaking of her--.11
Sometimes when I would ask
I her if she felt worse than usual, she
I wool. I rep'y :
"Oh.no! I am only a little tired

and vaguely suspecting the cause.
" Ucc.iuse, dear," she answered, "I

I't 1'owell's station, HeiektH's, and

l.oik'i-H. Some three or four 1 odes
an; n-ady, within a few miles of Knox
ville, and will be organized by bim us
soi u us he returns. An application
li.ei iiUii been received by Ilr. Morgan,
lep uty irand Chief Templar of Kast
1 emu ..see, to organize a I.ode nt He
vieiville, and the doctor will Bend
ISrn. Goldman to organize it as soon as
possible. The order has been fortunate
in obtaining the services of Mr. Gold
man, as he is decidedly the right man
iu the right place, and will accomplish
a great deal of good in the temperance
It has been decided bv Holston
Lodge, No. 3d, I. O. G. f., that on
next Monday night the Lodge would
celebrate Its third anniversary, at
which time it Is hoped there will be a
full turnout, and It is especially desir
ed that all the charter members be
present. It will certainly cause them
to re-join wien they see the results of
their labors. For two years it was an
up hill work, aud often there were
barely enough members present to
have a quorum, and some few times
not enough. The first year forty-eight
members were initiated into the order,
the second year, and the year in which
the Lodge had its hardest struggle,
only fourteen initiations took place.
The last year one hundred aud flfty
four persons were initiated into the
order, ind the Lodge now numbers
some 175 or lsiO members in good stand
ing. Among them are persons who
for years were addicted to the use of intoxicating-
beverages, but who now
stand as monuments of the glorious
influence of this noble order. May
the good work go on, until there be not
one left to ndvocate the cause of in
temperance. The Hrldnl Wine-Cup.
The following story was read at the
Holston Lodge, I. O. O. T., on last
Monday night by a young lady, In
such a touching) feeling manner as to
cause a tear to glisteu in many an eye.
Though, many of our readers may
have read it before, it will hear read
ing again :
"Pledge with wine, pledge with
wine," cried the young and thought
less Hnrvey Wood. "Fledge with
wine," ran through the bridal party.
The beautiful bride grew pale; the
decisiva hour had come. !She pressed
her white hands together, and the
leaves of she bridal wreath trembled
on her brow; her breath came quick
er, and her heart beui wilder.
" Yes, Marion, lay aside your cru
pies lor this once," said thejudge in a
low tone, going towards his daughter;
" the company expect it. Do not so
seriously infringe upon the rules of et
iquette. Iu your own home do as you
please; but in mine, for this once,
l'ouriug a brimming cup, they held
it, with tempting smiles, towards Ma
rion. She was very pale, though com
posed ; and her hand shook not as,
smiling back, she gracefully accepted
the ciystal tempter, mid raised il to her
lips. But scarcely had she done so
when every hand was arrested by her
piercing exclamation of " Oh ! how
" What is it ?" cried one and ull,
thronging together, for ahe had slow
ly carried the glass at arm's length,
and was fixedly ri gurding it.
" Wait," she answered, while a light,
which seemed inspired, shone from
her dark eves " wait, and I will lell
you. I see," she added slowly, point
ing one linger at the sparkliug ruby
liquid, "a sight that beggars all de
scription ; and yet, listen ; I will paint
it for you, if I can. It is a lovely spot ;
tall mouiiiains crowned with verdure
rise in awful sublimity around ; a rie
erruns through, aud bright ilowers
grow to tliu water's edge. Hut there a
group of Indiana gather ; they Hit to
and Iro, with something like sorrow
upon their dark brows. And in their
midst lies a manly form, but hischeek,
how deathly! his eyes wild with the
fitful lire of fever. One friend stands
before him nay, I should say, kueels ;
for see, he is pillowing that poor head
upon his breast.
" Oh! the high, holy-lookiug brow.
Why should death mark it, aud lie so
young '! Look, how he throws back
the damp curls ! See him clasp his
hands ! Hear his tiuiiling shrieks
for life! Mark how he clutches at the
form of his companion, imploring to
be saved ! Oh ! heir him call piteous
ly his father's name, see him twine his
lingers together, as he shrieks for his
sister his only sister the twin of his
soul weeping for him iu his distant
" Ktc !" she exclaimed, while the
bridal party shrank back, the untasted
wine trembling in their lalteringgrasp,
aud the Judge fell overpowered upon
his seat "see! his arms are lifted to
heaved lie prays how wildly ! for
mercy ; hot fever rushes through his
veiiio. He moves not ; his eyes are
set iu their sockets ; dim are their pier-
cing glances ; in vain his 'riend whis-
pers the name of father and sister
death is there. Death and no soft
hand, no irenlle voice, to soothe him.
His head sinks back : one convulsive
shudder he is dead !"
A (rroan ran through the assembly ;
bo vivid was her description, so uu
earthly her look, -o inspired her man
ner, that wbal she described Kecnied
actually to have taken place then and
thew. They noticed, also, mat the
bride groom hid his face in his hands,
ulld was weeping.
" Dead !" sliu repealed airain, her lips
((uiverinu faster and faster, aud her
voice more broken; "and there they
scoop him a grave; and there, without
a shroud, they lay him down in that
damp, reeking earth, the only son of a
proud father, the only idolized brother
of a fond sister. There he lies, my
father's son, my own twin brother, a
victim to this deadly poison. "Father!"
she exclaimed,; turning suddenly,
while the teurs'raihed down her beau
tiful cheeks " father, shall I drink it
'1 he form of the old judge was con
vulsed with agony. Jle raised not his
head, but in a smothered voice he
altered: ' No, no, my child ; no!"
Hie lifted the glittering goblet, and,
letting it suddenly fall to the lioor, it
was dashed into a thousand pieces.
Many a tearful eye watched her move
ment, and instantaneously every w ine
gla-s was transferred to the marble
table on which it had been prepared.
Then, us she looked ut the fragments
of crybtal, she turned to the company,
saying, " Iiet no friend hereafter who
loves uie tempt me to peril my soul for
wine. Not firmer aro the everlasting
hills than my resolve, Ood helping uio,
never to touch or tuste the poison cup.
And he to whom J have given my
hand, who watched over my brother's
dying form in that last solemn hour,
and buried the dear wanderer there by
the rives t!.-v land of gold, will, I
trust, sustain me In that resolve."
Jlis glistening eyes, his sad, sweet
smile, waa her answer. The Judge
left the room, and when, an hour after,
he returned, and with a more subdued
manner look part In the entertainment
of the bridal guests, tin one could fall
to read that bo had determined In
banish the enemy forever from his
princely home. Published by the

with rcnowed vitality. Wheat remains in
active and but few dealers are offering to
buy at any price. Strictly prime white in
car load lots will bring from 'M cents to
$1.00. We quote small lots from 8o conts
to 90. llod is very dull and low. Flour
very dull and tho market overstocked. But
little corn changed hands during tho past
week, but what was offered was readily taken
at our quotations, and sonio of our millers
havo paid as high as 75 cents, loose, for
small lots, but shippers ar ; not wiiling to
pay highor figures than we ipiote below.
Oats aro dull, and as the most of the South
ern orders for seed have been tilled, they
have declined, and but few buyers arc
now willing to pay over joO cents, loose.
Clover seod hns mado nnother slight ad
