We saw yesterday four specimens
of wheat from the farm of Mr. K. C.
Kdwards, one of the best farmers in
Anderson county, or Kust Tennessee.
The specimens were liouuhton, Fullz,
Clawson and Touzell. Three of these
specimens are from seed furnished
fiom the Agricultural Department at
Washington. The Full, is an early
and a hardy variety, well adapted t'o
our soil and climate. The bet two
named varieties are large, well filled
heads, and promise well. The Tou
zell Mr. Kdwards has only tried this
year, but thinks very favorably it it.
Last year he sowed eleven pounds of
theCluwsou wheat, from which lie
raised three bushels and three ptcks.
This he sowed last fall, and estimates
that he will make from bo to PK) bush
els. These facts speak well for the
wheat ami it is no doubt well adapted
to this country.
Mr. Kdwards, like most farmer, who
have put In their wheat crop well, is
satisfied that the leld this year will
be a good one. He will commence
harvesting to.day or to-morrow. The
bulk of the whuut crop iu East Ten

To tht Editor of the Chronicle:
Having often promised you an occa
sional letter, I devote an Idle moment
to drop you a few lines from our thrifty
little village of Sweetwater.
The weather has been Intensely
warm for the past few days, and farm
er are complaining of the drouth,
yet speak hopefully of the coming
harvest, lorn looks green and lieultliy,
while the w heut harvest will full but
little, If any, below a full crop; hence
you see a pleasant smile constantly
playing upon the genial faces of the
noble tillers of the soil the most inde
pendent people on the face of the
earth. And this fertile valley is bless
ed with excellent, thrifty farmers,
while they have a soil which you
merely liuve " to tickle with a hoe to
make it smile un ubundutit harvest, "
as Taylor facetiously remarks.
Filday night was a gulu night for
the town, being the closing exercises
of the Male High School, under the
charge of Prof. Buchmatt,or rather the
annual literary address and awarding
of prizes for excellence of scholarship,
eloquence and 01 1 hi grupby. The lit
erary address of Mr. Samuel McKin
ney, of Knoxville, was an excellent
production, well memorized and grace
fully delivered. His theme, "Young
America, Ids duties and opportuni
ties," consisted of a truest appeal to
the rising g.'iieniii n to throw nil' the
party shaekles which hml bound their
parents in the prist, to ignore their
prejudices and einn- young men's
parly, which would etleciiuilly heal
over the rankling wounds of Ihe past,
fourteen years, bridge fmever the
bloody chasm, and place the country
in a high career of gl-.ry Hint renown.

The Great Tabernacle.
T'o the Eiiilors ijf the Chronicle ;
On more than one Oceanian. I nave
visited Rev. M. Talmuge's Tubemui le,
in Brooklyn. It is certainly the
largest, finest und best arranged religi
ous audience chamber of the country.
There nro some things uhout It, I
would note. Yes, let me speak of its
music; I have never felt or given great
approval of instrumental church mus
ic. One reason is, it is not often good.
and those who thus worship praise
for the congregation, sometimes. Mid
often, more frequently, manifest less
religion than levity ; more .of the tone
and temper of laughter than reverence
and love I mean Godly love. This I
have noted Iu iSew ) ork and out of it.
But the music of the Talmage Tab
ernacle, is open to this objection. Ofthe
instruments employed, there ure but
two. Is one enough? No; two are
ueeded, if any. The organ is of im
mense size ; steam power generates the
active breath, which is measured off in
harmonious tones by Mr. Morgan, who
is, likely, the most accomplished or
ganist iu the world. He is a sedate,
grave, and noble specimen of mat).
But, what of the other Instrument?
It is a silver cornet, performed on by
Mr. Arbuckle, who is, with his sweet
tuied instrument, the leader of the
choir. Yes, 1 suppose the reader takos
it for granted thut the choir, thus led,
is housed away and bach on somn
stage-like gallery, and is composed of
quite a number of mals and female?,
who " rise up und praise God,"
with loud, ringing voices, in con
sideration of fixed salaries. Ex
actly no svv.h thinr), in this case.
The choir, I now refer to, I composed,
as near as I could estimute, of full t' i
thousand persons, seated iu that va-t
audience chamber and its galleries
and composing nearly two-thlriU of
the entire congregation. As the sol:,
yet deep tones of tiie great organ, un
der the muster tom-hes of Mr. Mor
gaii's bonds, challenge the attentive
ears of the greul congregation. Mr.
Arbuckle solemnly steps on a table in
front of the altar, facing the congrega
tion, with expressions of reverence
and uwe ukin to that we may suppose
the greut dny of judgment will inspire,
aud with two quiet easy waves of the
hands, lifts to their feet full 3,500.jvoi-
shipers; and surely no well-trained
human voice can give lortn more
fully the true soul (if combined
harmony and .melody than
does that giftod leader's cornet.
But oh! does now the lest rub cotiie ?
Does the reader expect me to s'iy thu;
the selections are the finest specimens
of popular ieraairs? I could do o
by writing a falsehood. Thetiu'.h is
to the words " Before Jehovah's aw
ful Throne," " How firm a foundation
yesaiuts ofthe Lord," "Jesus, lover of
my soul," " On Jordan's stormy banks
I stand," eto., airs which we all sup
pose were composed by David ,
I mean those which our very oldest,
people used toeing, and loved to sing
when young, are those selected. At'd
listen here ! The music of those more
than 2,000 voices following the lead of
those silvery tones sweet us the
sweetest vespers melting away on the
sleeping waters, has not mixed with it
" variations " boasted of by most of
our popular choirs (hut which is more
at par with the wild squalls of real
geese.) No, the music is full in its
tone and measure, and is so filled with
what we understand as meant by de
votion, that one who lisiena feels nn
inspiration that can not fail to reinlei
him or her a better man or woman.
