'loshow t lie iiibor ami hiirdsliips necessa
ry to lie undergone by the early settlers one
I a i in will be selecietl. No tloubl it will be
largely a repel il ion of tlie trials of many
olbers. I'jit ly in Isns a tamily moved from
iiginia anil . stoppt d on Hin pei ii t'i ek, in
Williamson. There they made a crop ol
corn. During Hi.) unit i vation of the crop
the man was examining the country lo
ma ke a select ion for a permanent home.
He linn lly selected I'M acres, south ol Duck
Kiver, in dense cane. For Ibis land he paid
s i ;in in-re cash, ami had it surveyed prepar
atory lo sett lenient, ami here we remark
that unite a huge u umber contained only
Inn acres, ami many of those tracts still con
tain 1 he .same, never having been added to
alleiAviirils. Tlie surveying of these lands
aviis ii ili.'iicult und laborious business. It is
claimed by Hie old settlers that the chain
carriers rode Indian ponies, ami, without
using peg or slake, broke a cane as a mark
ot t In- leiigl ii of Hit- chain. As t he cane pre
si'iitcd so many obstacles il aviis impossible
lo straighten lhe chain the carrier reached
forward ami hrok-ja cine, and soon. These
wild lands were abundant, and the owners
gave gootl niea.sure, for, since the countiy
has become open, these Inn tracts run out ln"i
lo 1H7 acres, and where larger bodiis were
located they now sIioav an Increase over the
old surveys. Iu making a good selection
three points were considered essential. First
a good spring: next, land having hut litlie
hills; and I hen not to get to much rocky
land. In August this gentleman eroded u
tent near the spring, anil first cleared some
laud and sown! it in turnips, then com
menced the getting ot house logs. When a
tree aviis found suitable, so soon as it was
prepaictl, a mail was cut through the cane,
not only to be able to haul the log, but to
obviate'l he ilitilculty of again linding it.
When, with great labor, the logs had been
collected the neighbors lor miles around
were invited to the housc-iaising, for this
A-us a labor willingly supplied, as all need
ed help. The plunk for Honrs, doors, etc.,
were sawed hy hand with a whip saw. Af
ter the outer buildings, pens, etc., Avere fin
ished, then the whole family were moved to
take possession, bringing horses, cattle anil
hogs. II is remarkable Unit, though lhe do
lueslic animals were turned loose iu the
ca ne, tiny led immediately around tue
house, showing they depended tor protec
tion on the tamily anil dogs. Noav t ante the
hard, laborious business of clearing tile
l ind of heavy timber antl cane, aud this, at
all odd linn s, and particularly in the Win
ter, emit timed for some years. The manner
of clearing tltcn was to cut down every
tr- e. Those needed for rails were so used.
Tlie balance, al'u-r heavy log-rolling, wore
burned, only a Icav acres would mane an
abundance of corn -usually 12 to li barrels
tolheacie. I ne great amount oi vcgeianie
mutter obviated the use of much plowing.

great that many cX-clIcnt families used
pcAvtor plates, pewter basins and mugs, and
this gave occupation to tinkers, supplying
and mending. In drinking cider out ol
n pewter mug there was peculiar spark
ling llavor. The acid of t he cider, act ing on

and, agreeably to the law placed on secd-bearei-s.
the big cane put forth a dying cl

cover t he ground in some localities to the

died and was easily removed by fire. I'he

From a recent conversation wiui Mr. Wil

were undei going treatment of a distin

with regret that Hiere has been no perma

a tendency to total blindness. A letter from

and general interest felt by tlie entire com
munity, in regard to tlie condition of our
friend, Ave take t he liberty of publishing.
A man by the name of Whitworth shot

I'o the Editors of the Herald and Mail:
Remember my original proposition was,
when von got tired of my productions as a
correspondent, to play the part of the trage
dian, and leaving out Macbeth's oaths, only
say, '-Hold enough. I did not set out to
write you polished articles, with poetical
lliglits or elixiuont lhougUt.s,neitherto carry
your readers away Avitii romantic stories of
wild advent ure.but simply to collect togeth
er ill plain sentence, whatever I thought
might interest them. Anything new gener
ally attracts notice, iicav ideas as well as
new arts, or new improvements; but it is al
Avays a (juestion with me when AATltimr,
whether I am not boring some one with
something that he understands better than
I do, or perhaps he knows that I am either
AA-iil'illiy or iguoiiiiitly mistaken. If such
should be the case it is my misfortune and
not vanity, and should I afford a momenta
ry pleasure to any onetturiiig the timespeut
iii glancing over my letters it is as much as
1 could expect, and will sulliclently repr.y
me lor the short time it red u ires lo write
thorn. If I were writing agiicultural arti
cles, there would be specialities that lillpht
be useful and instructive. I have made it a
business to produce all manner of vegeta
bles ill poitecllv high cultivation. Coin
nnd cotton have been my chief studies for
thirteen years, aud I am candidly of t he
opinion that if farmers, planters, and gard
liers; in fact, agriculturists generally, would
interview each other ofteiier, Interchanging
ide is, discussing all and every part ol Hie
business, Irom preparation of the soil, de
po.si:ing the s.-i d, cultivation in ail its de
partments, including Cue style of imple
ments, even to harvesting, gathering nnd
sLoriug, or preparing '' market, always
looking to the most profit-.ib'.e results by
it filial inu snppv in particular; according
to demand, there would spring up simulta
neously an interest Kill, prosperity hereto
:oio unknown. There is a human, benefit
in doing aiivthing to perfection, even to Hie
cultivation 'of a solitary vegetable. A year's
success abd the comfort and mprort of a
family of human beings depends more or
lesson the proper knowledge of their mi
nor mutters, and even a lite time is otteu
issed unsuccessfully because not uuder-
sliindingly, where tho greatest ellorts aud
industry have been exerted, in iiij, niiui
l.le opinion organizations solely and purely
for the dissemination of practical knowl
edge A-iil do more for the real benefit ot
mankind and advance, even pecuniary
prosperity much moie rapmiy to an auive,
than all Hie combinations of a quasi secret
character that will ever be originated.
i'lit sc combinations are generally losicrcu
and manipulated by the shrewd and design
ing few for their oavii private good, while
the :i.aiiy uuinformed are hoodwinked in
to their support by ostensible appearances
and demonstrations of opposition to mo-
1 know but little of the Grangers, except
their professed objects as set forth In Hie
papers, yet 1 suspect all such combinations
as oeiiig Hivek hoi-ses bearing gifts, etc,,
good in themselves, but very fertile for evil
since 1 began this letter 1 have had ray
entire family prostrated with sickness. We
are all up again, but the weather is so ter
ribly hot that it is very dillicult to recover
an v amount of vigorous feeling or action.
The crops are iioav about madt that is,
corn is complete, and the crop a good one.
l otion is noi'ig well, ami no ciiiei iiiiiir nus
made hisappcarance. Sugar cane very fine,
niitl potatoes also. I have just planted my
bill crop of peas and Irish potables, also lur
nips and ruta baijax. The fall raised Irish
I ot a toes are by far the most highly prized,
coining in at a time when other vegetables
are exhausted, and besides bei A; better than
the spring raised Northern potatoe scut
here for market. I have not failed to pro
duce t avo good crops of Irish potatoes a
year in twelve or tourteen years, aud have
now the eighth crop planted Irom the origi
nal seed, shoAA ing that the popular belief
tiiat it degenerates in this country is an er
ror. Mine are finer aud better thau the
original: they are the Early Rose, which is
my favorite, though many prefer oth
er varieties. My melons are just beginning
to ripen, itud ill this particular I boast of
par excellent. I have one special variety,
ami have had since lSti5. and would have no
other; in size they range from tw-euty to
sixty pounds, mostly tAventy-live to forty
five. I'liey only like a Tennessee ice house
to cool in.'to make them perfect; if I had di
rect express, would ship you a box of them,
but it is tiA-enty miles to any railroad or
boat. My Boi kshires are doing finely, and
I now only .want some of Major "Drown s
Jorsej s to turn on my clover this winter, to
make my business more complete. To .sum
up, prospects here are as propit ions as tlie
limes wiil permit, so lar as planting is con
cerned, but no man need look for aiiy profit
in out Sou thin year ii for a long time.
The stream is dammed up AA'ith increasing
flood behiud, too much already made for
demand aud still more iu sight; for I am
sure after close observaiion of the cotton
prospect during the growing season for fif
teen years, I have never knoAvn sis univer
sally a nond appearance at this time of tlie
year. A drouth of great severity might cut
short lhe uplands, but it ciunot injure the
rich bottom lauds. Our crops are made if
dry weather prevails.
As to tue political sky we are hopeful,
some of us preferred to see Oou. Hancock
lhe standard bearer, but no better men than
Tiiden and Hendricks could be selected,
provided I hey can lie elected. They are em
inently iiualilied to raise tlie nation from
Hie cess. pool of corruption Into which it
has sunk: besides the people appear more
thoroughly anxious for reform tnan at any
time since I lie Avar. I have always believed
that Hancock could come, nearer defeating
the Radicals than any other man; he was a
magnanimous enemy during the Avar, mid
a sympathetic champion since; he s;iav no
delight, arid loss honor in oppressing a fal
len loo. His reply to E. M. 1'ease, ot this
Slate, is as tine a Slate paper as most of our
Presidents have produced; if Judge Black
AAiis the author, as his enemies declare.
Judge Black Avould have made him a great
Secretary of St 'de he AA-oiild have made an
honored' t liict Ruler. Tiiden and Hendricks
if elected can but have a glorious niliuinis
l nil ion. We only fear that mil aud out par
tisans cannot unite the people, and as for
tnvself, I would much have preferred them
Humiliated as the people'scaudidate., to be
ing the bearer of any party flag, asTjeing the
safer wav to success. The truth is, 1 avus
reared li inter t lie old John Bell Whig stand
ard, and have always doubted too much de
mocracy. Too much pudding, but excuse
me ior "letting the cat out," and if the Dem
ocrat ie part v when ill power will exorcise
a Aviso and libera! policy, and at tlie same
time persue a prudent and unselfish admin
istration of the government, old whigs will
. Iieeiiullv affiliate with them. A burnt
child ought to iearn wisdom, and so ought a
ooli Hi-ill body which once alioAA-ed aspiring
demagogues to carry it into WK JUlai yzs
takos that the past Jills '.If -Veioped. In one
of my letters J.er capitem is altered into per

The common custom of saying per capita,

27te Jiritish OtuirU rli Review for Jnlv hnx
been republished by the Leonaiid Scott
PriiLlslHNO Co.. 51 Barclay Street. Noav
ork. Ave give a summary of the contents:
I. "The Illyrii'.n Emperors ami their
Land." This article, written bv Kdwnnl A.
Freeman, author of the "Norman ( oiinuest
of England," treats of the Roman Emperors
aa no c i a 1 1 1 1 i-u inyri.'i as ineir utrtli -place;
more particularly of Diocletiaa and his
enlevements both in polity and art. Some
thing is said, also, in extenuation of his
persecution ot the Christians.
II. "The Unseen Universe." The line of
argument adopted by tne authors of the
unseen universe seems lo l e lairlv pre
sented, and the reviewnr concludes with the
hope that the artificial barriers between
science and religion Avill eventually be re
III. "The Ri-voiuliou itnd Catholicism."
This article lakes the political rather than
the theological view of the question, pre
sents ns with the leading ideas populuriv
identified with "Revolution," and consid
ers "hoAV far, in case society is in danger of
being destroyed hy the Revolution, Catho
licism is in a posi; ion to save it."
IV. "The Independence and Integrity of
tlie Oltomini Empire." Written by Dr.
ijimlAvilh, for twenty-five years a resident
of Kars. I'icl u res the wretched condition of
the empire, describes the seat of Hie present
war, and indicates Hie dillicult iiositious of
the interested European countries.
V. "Drunkenness and proposed Reme
dies." After some statistics, showing the
rapid Increase of drunkenness, ami an ex
position ol I lie various plans proposed lor
its suppression, the writer expresses little
confidence in ithy of these measures, anil
believes i hat it Aviil be found most effectual
to lniA-e Hie "rich iiml Avell-to-do live more
among the poor, and set them aii example
ot m ii-coniroi, ot lreoiioni irom luxury, and
superiority to the temptations of their oavii
VI. "Cycles in Trade." The writer does
not believe I hut panics go in cycles, and at
tempts to mioav tiiat the present period of
reaction has its oavii special causes.
VII. "The Political Career of Air. Disrae
li." Starting from the year 1S37, we huve a
graphic account of Disraeli's changes ol
opinion, !'a cursory view of his most inter
esting appearances," and a general estimate
his powers. The writer concludes that "it is
not eiisy to estimate, the demoralizing el
fects of Mr. Disraeli's supremacy," but finds
it "some consolation to reaiember that his
career is likely to remain uuiiiue."
"Cuntemparary Literature" is us full and

To the Editors of the Herald and Mail;
In the election of Independent Democrat
in the county election and the defeat of the
conventlonlstH, while regretted by many
on account of the worth and excellence of
the nominees, a calm analysis and impar
tial survey of the reasons, should not be
discouraging to the straight conventionists.
Their defeat by the Independent Democrats
and the cause thereof, were motives ami
ideas by the Independent Democrats not at
all inimical or unfriendly to the Democratic
party in political elections. The traditions
of the two old parties that now compose the j
party, were opposed to making political
.contests any wa v in county elections. There
is much of the old leaven left yet. Whll ;
not indorsing the idea, yet many country
people believe that most ot the county of
ficial conventions are" gotten up aud packed
by f he interested parties, who the unspar
ingly use the party whip on those of the
wiine Democratic faith who dare to vote for
a Democrat for county office without he is
nominated, aud in return for the courtesy,
the Independent Democrat takes a ma
licious pleasure in leavihv! Willi them

for he believes lie has a right to vote for
Democrats for countv ofHce atral nst. a reioi.

Far away from the busv scones of life. Is u
(fillet vale, a delightful rest by the wayside
of the toilsome highway of life, to tliose
whose motto is "Onward, ever onward."
'Twas earlv moruins in mid Summer
when 1 beheld this lone, secluded dell, iu its
sublime quietude. A dense grove of tall
trees, untouched save by the relentless
hand of time, stood iu all their native maj
esty, their leafy boughs Interlacing, and
with clustering vines, formed a stuneiiilons
arbor. Here and there a ray of sunlight
littered upon the dark emerald leaves li ke
gleams of brightest gold. Occasionally the
wilii, sweet music of birds' songs were borne
upon the perfumed air. Upon the tiny
mounds of the forest glistened like purest
gems, as if the fairies had left their pearly
necklaces among the lovelv mosses. Is-iiu-
teous caskets for such resplendent jewels, a
lew crimson leaflets, silent messengers ot
the gorgeous Autumn, lay like rubies amid
t he lights and shadows of this sylvan scene.
Mel bought, while surrounded by so much of
nature's beauty, music and poetrA", that
here even the "dull spirit of sadness" would
be charmed away; that care "could find uu
home" iu such an enchanted tilace. one
could almost imagine a primeval Eden.
Here the hear would involuntarily otter
praises to "Him who hath made all things
beautiful in their time." To tlie ardent lov
er of nature such scenes inspire him with a
calmer, more confiding hope iu the prom
ise "of a brighter world thau this. M.
