Messrs. J. A. Brakeblll&Co. shipped

SALMON FOR OUR RIVER.
A Liberal Oiler.
We have been permitted to male
the following extract from a letter of
Prof. Spencer F. Baird, of the United
States Fish Commission, to a gentle
man in this city concerning the intro
duction of salmon into the Holston:
"If any of your public-spirited citi
zens would furnish the funds, to the
amount of one or two hundred dollars,
to meet the cost of bringing the young
fish from Michigan to your State they
can have the salmon from t tie United

This is a very liberal oiler, and we
should bo very g'ad to announce that
one or more of our liberal-hearted citi

particulars from the California salmon.

The Career of Andrew JoUnson.
This statesman and patriot has pass
ed away, but his deeds will live after
him. What a commentary is his fame
on the advantages of an American cit
izen? Unlettered and unaided, rely
ing upon himself, he advanced step by
step from the lowest station iu life, to
the highest office in the gift of the
American people. All this was ac
complished by unswerving integrity,
dauntless courage, and persevering re
search. By the exercise of these prin
ciples, it is in the power of any poor
and friendless boytoattain the same
grand result. The same success is at
tainable in the commercial worlu as in
the political, as is proven iu the case of
Dr. Terr's Standard Prepara

labored patiently, and to-day no medi

public estimation as his Liver Pills.

There is a man in our district
named Hall Cox, who is 70 years old,
aud has not had enough sickness iu
thirty years to lay him on the lied. He
cau do as much work as the average
youug men of the country. Last year
he cleared more than two acres of tim
bered land, cutting down every tree
on it and making a good part of tho
rails to fence it, which he laid up him

up land for a potato patch. Mr. Cox

On Friday, while the public road
hands were engaged in putting a foot
log across Bull Ruu, in the 0th dis
trict, a difficulty occurred which came
near resulting fatally to Mr. Swatzell.
Mr. S. had t.iuud it his duty, as a mem
bei of the Grand Jury, to return the
overseer of the road, Mr. Lige Clark,
for failing to keep a foot-log across the
creek cu his section of the road. Mr.
Clark made some hard threats against
Mr. Swatzell on this account, aud on
Friday, while Clark was standing on
the log superintending the work, Mr.
Swatzell came aloug on his way home
from mill, carrying a bushel and a
half of meal on his shoulder. When
he got partly across the log Clark,
without giving him any notice at all,
deliberately struck him 011 the head
with a handspike, knocking him oil
the log. ,Mr. s. nil on u wagon,
twelve or fifteen feet below, the sack
of meal falling on him, whereupon
Clark pitched the handspike and
stuck the end of it into Swatzell'a
side, making a dangerous wound. Mr.
Swat .el I was taken to his home un
conscious, and the doctors pronounced
that the chances for life were against
him. The attack was pronounced u
cowardly ailair, as Mr. Swatzell was
an old man, and Clark a young man,
iu tiie prime of life, This disgraceful
ailair all comes of our bungling road
law. No law founded on Injustice can
produce any tiling but adisgraceful state
of nllitirs, aud I can demonstrate in
twenty lines that our present law is
founded ou the most palpable injus
tice. A moneyed mau may own
twenty thousand dollars' worth of
land in the 8th district and have it
cultivated by ten poor men. Our law
compels the ten poor men to keep up
the roads on which the rich man hauls
hi.i grain to market, while he goes live,
Is that justice? It is the justice of
slaves, and not ot a sensitive, brave
and patriotic people. Such a law may
meet tho ends desired among serfs, but
not among Tennesseeans. I sav, tax
tiie tvventy thousand dollars' worth ot

circumstances. Neither need we ezn

Mrs. Rhodes had taken special pre
caution to fasten all the doors aud
window bliuds securely before going
to the festival, fearing something of

but upon returning from the Festival,
she discovered the window shutter of
the dining-room window, (right fac
ing the church, ami only a thort
distance from It), open, the window
up, the lamp burning full blast and
the boxes which contained the
jewelry open and the contents gone, a

at first the poor sougstress, earning
tier bread by tier songs, and finally the
loving and devoted wife of Boh Brier-

his troubles, deserves especial mention
for the splendid manner in which she
sustained her character throughout.
She also certainly possesses a wonder
ful talent as an amateur actress, and

Dr. R. V. Pierce:
Icar Sir : Twenty years ago I was
shipwrecked on the Atlantic Ocean,
and the cold aud exposure caused a
large abcess to form on each leg, which
kept continually discharging. I was
attended by doctors in Liverpool,
Havre, New Orleans, New York, and
at the hospital on Staten Island
(where the doctors wanted to take one
leg off). Finally, after spending hun
dreds of dollars, I was persuaded to try
your "Golden Medical Discovery,"
and now, in less than three mouths
after takiug tbe first bottle, I am
thankful to say I am completely cured,
and for the first time iu ten years can
put my left heel to the ground. I am
at homo nearly every evening and
shall be glad to satisfy any person of
the truth of this information. 1 am,
sir, yours respectfully,

To the Editors of the Chronicle :
I learn that our citizens, by paying
the expenses of the enterprise, to the
amount uf oueor two hundred dollars,
cau secure from the United Slates
Fish Commission a supply of young
sea salmon for the purpose of stocking
tho Teunesseo River with that valua
ble fish. I think that Dr. Boyd and
Prof. Nicholson, who I understand
have with true public spirit investi
gated the subject aud procured this
offer, are eutitled to the thanks of the
community, and that we ought, by all
means, to avail ourselves of the op
portunity. As we have no Commis
sioners uf Fisheries in this State,
whatever is doue must, of course, be
by private enterprise. But the ad
vantages to the entire community aud
Slate will be so great that I am coulis
dent the small amount of funds re
quired can be raise' with trifling
effort. We know that great success
has attended the labors of the United
States Fish Commissioners in stocking
the streams and lakes of other States,
and as we have no State organization
here to do the work for us, let us, by
all means, raise the small fuud re
quired, and have the work done ut
ouce. No community ever yet lost
anything by being public-spirted and
enterprising, and the present opportu
nity is too good to be lost.
