It will be recollected that some time last
year, or the-year before, the case of a young
iady, irom whose stomach a live snake was
extracted, was reported lu the Murfreeafcoro
paper, upon the authority of Dr. Berger, the
attending physician, and ol a mother of the
lady as well as the young lady herself. No
case was ever better authenticated. The
snake before it was captured, had frequent
ly come up into her 211 ou 111, anu sue had on
several occasions caught It by the head in
her teeth, but it would pull loose and re-

belied his coat around the tree as far up as
he could reach, hurried home, sot the-dogs,
and the boys w ith axes, ret u rued and cut
tin- lice down, and tin- dogs soon killed tlie

he would kill a deer. On Sunday he took a

so thick he could see only a few feet. .Soon
a deer came running, meeting him, ran by
and was Minn out of sight. Cncle Jerry said
he never thought of his gnu till till deer
was gone, and when he returned and re

Yesterday morning was a sad one to the

course the Zion boys cared notning for the
departure of two pretty girls. Oh, no, it was
Uncle Jackie and Pres. Fleming they were
preparing to siied tears for. Marling the
tiddler, played "Home Sweet Home," "Kil
dare," "Natchez Under the Hill," and oth
er plaintive but melodious tunes. While
the hack was preparing to depart, a crowd
assembled around the big beech tree, trying
to decipher two lines of poetry carved
1 hereon many years ago. Watkins Flem
ing sy.s he read it ten years ago, and it was
old then. A few words are somewhat illegi
ble, aud great was the discussion as to what
was the correct version. Watkius Flem
ing's version was as follows:
"Iove, like the tendrils of a curling vine,
Limits with limbs in amorous lolds en
twine." The first word of the second line is the one
in dispute. Air, Harvey li. Ldmlstou made
it out thus:
"Love.like the tendrils of a cnrling vine,
Will as with limbs in amorous folds en
I presented the two versions to the oldest
of the young ladies, ready to depart, and
asked her to decide which was correct. She
thought Mr. Kdmiston's the correct one.
Can anybody find the quotation in Milton?
'I he Zion Churchnxiys do not come around
the Kstes House as much as they did before
the young ladies left. Tht so same boys are
too good to dance, but they think it no sin
to love a pretty girl. Johnny Hendricks has

Nevei in the history of civilization lias a
work been gathered with so much quietude
and so little flourish of trumpets as John
son's New Univkksai. CyciOp.kdia. Like
a storm cloud, it has been gathered with
scarcely an audible mutter, and has quietly
stolen upon us, and now stands ready to
pour out its effulgent streams ot knowledge,
which will be felt with the greatest pleasure
I "'r many years 10 come. 11. is ciaimeu 10
I and truly is, so far as we have examin-
of I ed. hir superior to any work of its class yet
ever published. It originated iu the mind
ot the late Horace Greeley, who was him
self a walkiug Cyclopaedia. Mr. Greeley al
woys maintained that all publications
within the last eeutury claiming to be
knowledge repositories particularly adapt
ed to American wants were itecldedly defi
cient in a great many important respects,
and too often failed altogether to meet tlie
urgent demand of busy America, he claim
ed that they were altogether too much
' lumbered up" (as he expressed it) with
conjecture and opinion, which rendered
them not altogether reliable, it not entirely
valueless, in thousands of instances. He al
so argued forever that they were unnecessa
rily voluminous, which only served to
make them too expensive for the masses to
afford to luxuriate in the matter tliey
coulaiued. and the scholar anu Knowiedg
seeker who owned such publications of the
past were alike too frequently put to vexa
tious delay by being obliged to handle the
excessive number to get at the information
sought. Being acquainted with Mr. Joun
8om as a publisher, he often took the privi
lege oi explaining to him (in a clear, lucid
manner) his views as to what would consti
tute a true Cyclopiedia that would, perhaps,
forever shed a halo of glory, and whose peu
elratiug rays would brighten the darkest
recesses of all Christendom, and would al
ways stand, a brace to the careworn sclwlar,
while the little boy of tlie bright and glo
rious future would bask in its radiant splen
dor. Mr. Johnson being a busy raau, as
most spubUshers are, at first heeded his
dream but Utile, but by his repeated aud
more frequent occurring appeals he found
himself au admirer of his theme, yet was
slow to move in the plaus of this stupen
dous undertaking, and not until entirely
overcome by Mr. Greeley's eloquence, that
always characterized his earnestness, did he
"consent lo do what ne could," exacting as
much directing as his own spare lime could
possibly afford. Mr. Johnson therefore (af
ter mature consideration) walked Iortii
with a principle fixed, a determination
strong, and a nerve not to be daunted witli
the foibles of mankind, and, after a long
aud vexatious struggle (perhaps never ex
perienced before, and only felt In tt ciiy,)
succeeded in arresting the attention and se
curing the services ol one of America's no
blest scholars. That scholar's name stands
nt the head of the stall", and that name is
F. A. P. Barnard, S, T. D., LL.D., L. H.D., M.
N. A. S., President of Columbia College, N.

distinction on earth is indeed great. To
give you but a glimmering idea ol what it
is (aud which can only here be given at
least) we will mention but a few depart
ments represented in this truly great work,
and the names of tlie scholars in whose
hands they are treated, tou will find their
names appended to the numerous great ar
ticles they have furnished, thereby giving
you a voucher for tlie accuracy of the state
ment therein set forth, and rendering their
own future reputation and their profession
at stake.. The few departments and schol
ars we will mention are these: Internation

gy, etc., and Prof. Henry takes Physics aud
The names and departments here men
tioned are but few. The editorial staff is
composed of our greteast scholars, repre
senting every part of our great country.
The first volumes give the names of more
than five hundred contributors of special
articles and they are names oi eminence the
world over. Each religious denomination,
political party, as well as each department
of science, literature and art, is faithfully
represented by their exponents, who have
been called out because of their peculiar fit
ness, and their names stand appended (as
we have said) to the bottom of their articles
as a guaranty for their accuracy. Among
foreign contributors are such names as
Proctor, Tyndall, Kauenstine, V'aux, Ed-
word M. Smith, and many others too te
dious to mention, of England, France, Ger
many, Switzerland, xretaua, itussia, Prus
sia, as well as South America, are represen
ted in tlie list of contributors. The work,
when completed, will contain more than
thirty thousand titles or subjects more than
any other work of its class, and yet its lead
ing articles occupy more space than the i-or-respouding
articles in any American cyclo
piedia with which we are acquainted. We
have examined the first volume, and
every subject we have sought for we have
found fully treated aud with an accuracy
not always observed with a work of this
class. Its sketches of noted individuals, li v
inu and dead, are most complete and faith
ful", making it a complete biographical dic
tionary. The Geographical Department
seems to be remarkably complete aud relia
ble. Every one of the tuofi than twenty
thousand cities and towns of the United
Suites is glveu, and all towns of any size
are written by residents. The first volumes
have more than a thousand Illustrations,
all of which are new ftnd fresli, andgeuerally
mude by the hand or under the direction of
the writer of the article they illustrate. The
work has also a large number of physical
maps, each bearing tlie signature of Prof.
Guot. jn volumes this entire work will be
represented in four, to lay at your elbow or
11 1 Kin your centre-table. Iu price it is less
than half that of the best American cyclo
piedia ever heretofore published. The
amount of type matter is about the same,
ana the print is generally considered more
beautiful. Mr. Greeley fell in the incipien
cy of this woric, yet his name is retained in
the staff in honor of t he lew articles he fur
nished. The whole of his "American Con
flict," which sold for rl-3.00, he boiled dowu
to about fifteen pages, which renders it
more readable and of more value to the
man whose time lor utudy is limited than
the whole from which it was compiled. This
was the last thai he furnished, aud in pre
senting it to the publisher he modestly le
marked, "I hope it will be acceptable, for I
have doue my best to tell the truth and not
to offend the people of either tlie North or
South." You are asked lo believe nothing
you here see, and credit nobody's remarks
without seeing for yourself. The work will
be presented to you for thorough examina
tion aud comparison with any other work
you may have or can obtain of this class.
Mr. Paisley, the canvasser, promises all the
courtesy his art and nature can command,
even if you are entirely indisposed to in
vest. Horace Greeley, like other meu, had his
faults, yet he never lived to realize his
dream, and all those persons who
will, with care aud scrutiny, view this
work, will never regret, but will rejoice
that tliey have truly seen what hung but a
picture ou his brain.

Upon a hasty glance over tlie first and
second volumes of Johnson's New Univer
sal Cyclopiedia, I am free to confess that I
have formed a very favorable opinion of tlie
work. It Is a scientific and popular treasu
ry of useful knowledge, illustrated with
maps and engravings; its articles seem to be
fresh, and the contributors are representa
tive authorities iu their particular depart
ments of learning. Such a work is un
laoubledly an important addition to Ameri
From Kev. Dr. Beckett, of the Columbia 7;isfi-
Johnson's New Universal Cyclopiedia is'
remarkable for research, condensation and
accuracy, and its puiff of contributors alone
ought to secure for it an extensive circula
tion. From Dr. Beard, of Debawm, Tenn.
Having examined the first volume of
Johnson s New Cyclopiedia with some care
in the time which 1 have been able to spare
for that purpose, I take pleasure in thus ex
pressing my views of the work. The first
thing that arrests attention in looking into
it is the character of the contributors to the
present volume, and of those who are pledg
ed for the remaining volumes. Many of
them are among the first scholars aud wri
ters of the age. Such meu could hardly
produce an indifferent work. Their repu
tation is a guarantee that this work is, or
will be, one of the very best of tlie kind in
the language- Further examination will
satisfy any reader that this expectation will
not be disappoiuled. Many of the articles
are on great subjects. They are well writ

densed sufficiently to avoid prolixation.
and still to be intelligible and interesting.
Judging from the specimen we have It
would he difficult to hnd a more perfect il
lustration of the until 11 m in jxirro. ThiR is
almost iudispeiisable in our ae of books.
The amount, of mailer in this work will be
immense. I have spokeii of the great sub
jects. Tlie smaller subjects are also presen
ted with sufficient care. These are mo.-l
important to the common reader, aud they
are here neaily innumerable. To say all in
the fewest words, the work to professional
men will be found a great help as a work of
reference, and to ihe common reader sim

Keply to Major Campbell Urvwn.
To the Ediws of tlie Herald and HsiU
Major Campbell Brown is mistaken when
he asserts in his letter to you last week that
I had "seriously misrepresented" him iu
my comments the week previous ou the
"card-' he published a few weeks before in
By careful relerence to what I did say, he
will find I construed his declaration of be
ing "opposed to laying a higher tax on the
people until every oilier means (of meeting
the demands of the bondholders) hod been
tried and exhausted," to simply mean that
he would be in favor of raising our taxes;
aud, no mutter how high, in case the "oth
er means" were insufficient, to support the
State Government, and satisfy the unrea
sonable demands of the few who, having
speculated unfairly in State bonds, and
formed themselves into a Utile "King,"
would now, Shylock like, wring their
poands of flesh Irom an overburdened and
nearly exhausted people. Whether Major
Brown intended to convey such a meaning
or not, I submit the question, if my con
struction of the language quoted from him
is not the natural and inevitable interpre
tation of the unbiased reader. I never in
tended to, or never did, impugn the person
al motives of Major Brown, I never be
lieved him to be personally interested in
State bonds. On the contrajy, I have full
centideuce in his personal purity, and be
lieve him so honest anu irue uiai, uaoi lue
whole of his wealth consisted ol State
bonds, I believe, as a Legislator, he would
have acted for the people, aud that we
should never have found him seeking a
place in the State government (as some
have done) for the sole purpose of manipu
lating things in their own interest.
The gist 01 my communications on the
subject of the Slate Debt, so far as it relates
to Mr. Brown- may be summed up as fol
lows: 1st. His "card," as quoted from, implied
an intention to tax, never so high, au over
burdened people, in case other means of
raising revenue proved insufficient, to pay
current expenses, uud satisfy the selfish de
mands of the few bondholders.
2d. I claimed to believe, what men can
plainly see, more aud more, daily that the
people of this county and Slate are utterly
and lrrevokeably opposed to any increase of
taxation whatever, no matter what the pre-

But I am happy to find Major Brown did
uot intend what I think a fair construction
of the language in his card implies, or else,
perceiving the wishes of his countrymen to
be adverse, will carry out their and not his
own views: for, in his letter to the Hkkalij
and Mail, last week, he says, "In every
speech 1 have made 1 have taken the
ground that the next Legislature ought not
to raise the taxes, and have said that I
would not vole fof higher taxes." Firmly
believing Major Campbell Brown will truly
Hiid certainly curry out the will of tho peo
ple, and his promises to them, as made in
his speeches, as just above quoted, he may
rely upon the support of thousands besides
this o"K of Mauky's Voteus.
To the Editors os the Herald and Mail:
In your last issue I find the following:
"Maury County is very temperate does
n't even take Porter! That convention last
Monday must have been packed with the
various lodges of Good Templars in the
county. If a resolution thut was offered, in
dorsing Porter, and instructing the dele
gates to vote lor him, had not been with
drawn, it would have been tabled with a
unanimity and vehemence almost unpar
alleled." As I was the author of the resolution re
ferred to, the paragraph above quoted
would indicate that 1 istood ulone, among
the Democrats of this county iu advocacy of
the nomination of Governor Porter. So far
from this being true I am satisfied that a
large majority of the Democracy of this
county la vors his re-noniiuatlon, and cor
dially indorse his administration, and in
this they are in full aooord with tlie party
throughout the Slate. It. was a matter of
greyt surprise to me to Uiid the leaders of
the party departing from the immemorial
Democratic custom, aud seeking by parlia
mentary tactics to prevent even the read
ing ol the resolutions indorsing tlie admin
istration of Gov. 1'orter, and instructing
delegates lor him. If Maury County had
any favorite son who sought the nomina
tion the enigma would be solved. But 1
have heard of no aspirant from tli is county.
If Governor Porter has not made us an hon
est, able and ellicient ;Goveruor; ii he has
neglected auy of his official duties: if the
laws of the Stale have not been wisely ad
ministrated: if peace, quiet aud order have
not reigned throughout the suite: if he has
not endeavored to carry out the retrench
ment and reform demanded by the plat
form of 1S71, passed by the convention lhat
nominated him, then he must step down
and out; for, in this era of reform, the peo
ple will have nothing to do with an unfailh
f ul servant. But ou the other hand, if Gov.
Porter has made us a good Governor; hon
est, capable and faithlul in the discharge of
his duties; then the people who are ever
anxious to do right will honor nun Willi a
second term, aud I predict thut. e'er the
sun goes down ou tlie day of the conven
tion, Gov. Porter will be the chosen stan
dard bearer of Ihe Democracy of the Suite,
and that all the Good Templars will take
Porter in "their'u."

Capl. Kogers' communication is calcu
lated to lead our reader Into error. From
reading his communication, one would in
fer lhat his resolutions inst ructing delegates
1 1 vote lor the nominatioa of Gov. Porter,
were not allowed to be read, by parliamen
tary tactics. His resolutions were read, and
a motion was made to lay them on the ta
ble, and Capt. Kogers was permitted to
withdraw his resolutions, which he did
when he saw that Ihe motion lo lay them
on the table would lie carried by storm. It
whs sympathy and esteem for Capt. Kogers,
which all feel, that prompted W.J. Whit
thorne to suggest that the resolutions be
withdrawn, which whs done. It Is queer, If
Porter hiul so many friend in Maury Coun
ty, that a few of them were not iu the con
vention. We call special attention to the adver
tisement of Dr. W. E. Ward's Seminary, of
Nashville. This school has nourished for a
number of years at the head, none surpas
sing it anywhere. One of its leading fea
turts is the careful family training each
scholar receives; those little comforts and
attentions which belong exclusively to
home are not forcotten. As an educator,
Mr. Ward's reptihition isalieady made. The
testimonials of this fact are seen in the dal
ly walks of life throughout the South. He
needs no commendation from us.
A ni8rriage should only lie consumma

usually contracted to satisfy desires, as love,
fortune and rank or position. The re

marries for love takes a wife; who marries
for fortune take a mistress; who marries
for position takes ti lady. You lo(-d bv

Your wife will agree with you, your uns

The'appearance on the square early Sat

Mr. Arnell first called tho meeting to or

As it was a hot day and the room was
crowded, we felt very much indebted to Mr.

seemed to have been agreed upon, as all the

Mr. A. M. Hughes, Jr., in a few remarks
seconding the motion, congratulated the
party upon tlie good leeiiiig that was then
existing and which promised to exist
throughout the canvass. He said that the
party lu tnis county were now in a condi
tion, not only to elect Legislators, but that
thev could aud would elect their Congress

spirit of a leader and seemed to have much
iulluence. Afler a few olher remarks, the
motion to adjourn was unanimously car
ried, and the Chairman announced that the
convention was aojourueia iui nu nram,
