forever. What more could any one ask? A
death is as rare here as common sense
among Florida lawyers, or honesty in crook

dwellers on the noor worn out lauds of the
north, do not rush in, instead of our young
men iignting out.

Dining the pioneer time molasses was nl
iost 11 u known. Honey, as a substitute.
was very abundantly used. My earliest
recollection reverls to a barrel of honev,
then nearly full, that stood in mother's cel
lar. It was then candied, and almost white,
lusted many years, and had become so
thick, it was drawn by thrusting in, and '
twistiuga slick, aud then removing into a
vessei. Brandy sweetened with honey was
a common drink.
An incident Impressed indelibly the
prices of these old times. One remarkahlv
cold and snowy night, the stage stopied a't
mother's. There were some eight or ten
passengers very cold. Thev aroused the
tamily, bad a lire made, and theu all drank
of brandy and honey, what they wanted,
soiiie repeated. After warming and drink
ing, a genteel urwssed man. said to me, "Lit
tle fellow, wiiat is to pay?" I stepped to
mother's door and asked her. She required
ne to hold the bottle nn. that she iniuht see
what amount had disappeared, and answer
ed "nine pence." The young man handed
me a silver half dollar.and called out, "come
gentlemen, let us go, for 1 have seen what I
never expected, that a lanuly aroused at
midnight to make a fire, and furnish eight
or ton men what they would drink, and
then charge only "nine pence." I was dis-
tresseu unit tne man went oil without his
change, and gave the money to mother, and
loin tier tne man reiused to wait.
Since ihe war I was invited by au old
gentleman from V ississippl, to visit a gen
tleman here in Maury. They had been
lxys together, and grew np iu the early
days of the cane. They had not met each
ot her for about fifty years. They called
each ot her Dyer and John, and seemed to
know 110 names each for the other but
those of boyhood. The meeting was very
agreeable to both, and particularly interes
t lug to me. Soon their minds reverted to
b.vyhood days many incidents were refer
red to. The old days of heavy log-rollings
were discussed with a boy's relish. They
recounted those stout ones, who had been
able to carry their ends of the hand-spikes
through Ihe heavy rollings, and many
one was recollected as "much of a man."
They seemed to enjoy again the corn-shnck-Ings,
and house-raisings, as they were
brought to mind, and many of the trials
and pleasures of boyhood. When the time
came for parting, the eyes of each, filled
wilh tears, were uncertain of meeting
again, one lias siuce gone to his reward;
the. other, now old and decrepid, still lin
gers on tlie shores of time, and feels he has
a home above, and friends and loved ones
there to meet him on his arrival.
There were four old ladies, who lived
neighbors for many years. They did not
use borrowing and lending in those days,
lor all had plenty, ana uvea iu great aoun
dance on home productions. When one
killed a shout, lamb, beel, or roonea Dees, a
oortiou was sent all around, that all might
enjoy what they considered a variety. If
ever a iar or discord existed among them. I
never heard of it. They met usually once
or twice a week, at some one of their
bouses, as they all lived near. They always
met after dinner, when one came in, the
others soon dropped in. 1 never knew by
hy wlial kind or f ree masonry iney anew
ot the evening to meet, as the meetings were
not on stated days. They all called each
other " aunt." There was Aunt Sally L.,
Aunt Hannah, Aunt Polly, and Aunt Sally

The "Great Star Exhibition," was to have

The Methodist Church was not completed
last week, but Ihe pastor determined to
hold meeting in it on Sunday White, do
mestic was stretched over the glassless win
dows, and the old benches were brought in,
together witli those that belonged to theold
basement, so much larger is the audience
room of the new church than that of the old
burnt one. The paper mail made fran
tic cil'orts to get the walls paicred in time,
but the paper gave out late Saturday even
ing. He telegraphed to Nashville for more,
and it came Saturday night 011 tne ti o'clock
train, but it turned out to be of a diflcrcht
color, and if that paper-hanger had not been
in achurcli he would no doubt have usimi
ugly words. The walls remained partly
done, but Sunday morning the Sabbath
school was held iu the new church, and the
iiew Superintendent, li. T. Hughes, Esq.,
lice H. P. Figuers resigned, made au excel
lent speech. Bro.Ormuii said Mr. Hughes
came recommended as one of the best Sunday-school
Superliitendauts in the Stale.
Mr. Hughes certainly knows how to luakea
good sx.eech, for lie made one of the best we
ever heard. His speech ou this occasion
was admirable. Hesuid lie endorsed Bio.
Oruian when he said a Suiiday-scliool
should have as many scholars as there are
members of the church, and lie trusted that
the teachers and pupils should all see to it
that their school become as large as the
membership ol the Methodist Church iu Co
lumbia. Much depended 011 the individual
efforts of the teachers aud pupils, but they
must depend ou God, aud pray unceusiug
there can be 1.0 real success without God's
help. He said lie sometimes leaied that
we depended too much ou mere lulelleclual
effort and the power of industry, etc., and
relied too Utile 011 the old-tashioued power
ol prayer and humble dependence on God.
He hotted the teachers would uli join him
in praying individually lor Ihe success ol
At HI o'clock the church began to till up
Willi people, and soon the vast room was
lull of Met hodists, PresbyU'rians, Cuinber
laads, Baptists and Episconalians, there be
ing no services at tue first three named
churches. Miss Rosa Burnett, of St. Pe
ter's Church choir, and a highly accom
plished singer, was requested by the now
banned Dr. A. W. Smith before he died to
sing a solo at the lirst service in the new
Methodist Church, mid chose for her the
grand hymn'l know that my Redeemer liv
eth." She promised him to do so when lie
was 011 Ins deathbed and sure enough she
sung It last Sunday, and sang it eloquently,
beautifully and grandly. Dr. Young
preached from Romans .'itli chapter 1st
verse, "Therefore being Justified by faith,
wo have peace with God, through our Lord
Jesus Christ." He said this was a historical
UoU, for it had inspired the Protestant Re
formation, aim irom 11 sprang the second
Reformation, the foundation of Methodism
bv the Wesleys. Tnese two grand epochs
iu the history of tho church and of the
world Were traceable directly to the text
which lie hud Just read. "Therefore being
justified by faith, etc." Tlie learned Doctor
Itiuk up the word "justified," and explained
it very satisfactorily, It was a legal phrase
and meaut the relation existing between
man and the great law-giver. The word
fiith was dealt with: he said he could ex
plain "faith" tj business men by asking
inem 11 tney ever went -surety or -security"
for auolher. He might go to the First
National Bank of Nashville, and taking a
note signed by R. A. Young aud ask a loan
of money 011 it, and the Cashier would say
that they had no money to lend the cotton
men had borrowed it all, etc.; but if lie went
ui on High Street and got the name of a
certain well known capitalist ou it, and
then take it to Ihe bank, he could get his
arms lull of money so potent would be
that second name that "surety." He then
made an application of this illustration bv
saying that all who would get Christ for
their security wouiu nave an tuelr debts re
moved. Dr. Young then spoke of "ieaco"
as the result of faith and justification: lie
said the Bible did not use extravagant lan
guage in these matters, but modest words.
To the younger persons in the congregation
the word "peace" had no very significant
meaning, but to the older persons who
were vexed aud annoyed and worried by
the cares aud troubles of the world to such
tlie word "peace" was full of cuiufurt and
pregnant with meaning.
In the afleruoon Dr. Voting preached an
other sermon, from V2d Psalm, 12th verse,
"The righUeous shall rionrlsh like the palm
tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon."
The Doctor commenced by saying the Jews
divided their books into three kinds, legal
or dry style, the prophetic or florid style,
the psalms or illustrative style. A great
mind naturally links itself on to illustra
tions. In the text a righteous man is com
pared to a palm tree, both in usef ulness and
beauty. We commit an error in always
speaking of a christian man as inflexibly
honest, sternly houest, puritanical, and
nt ver saying a word about his being very
lovely in character. (In describing the love
ly feature which belongs to a perfect chris
tian life, Dr. Young looked continually at
Ihe venerable John D. Fleming, who sat on
a front bench 110 doubt saying lo himsell,
"here Is an old man has led a lovely and at
tractive christ Ian life, and is still lovely ami
Ix-autilul in his influence and character.")
The palm trM. is the must ln-uutllul tree lu
the world. The trunk Is tall and majestic,
and the foliage is Is-auliful. The palm ;.ev
is also the most useful tree iu the world, be
cause it can be put to more use than even

Columbia's honored dead now lie ou yonder

ihat I, side by side with my own loved ones,

consider Memphis the hotbed, where spring
with great rupidity and grow with rank
iaxmiaiice the noxious weeds ot rcpudias
lion, that she is the stagnant pool from
which arises the malarious atmosphere thai
b-i.nsonils poisoned bosjni tlie seeds ul
death and destruction, infecting all the sur
rounding country U a greater or less extent,
I think you do Memphis great injustice. I
cannot and will not believe that her people
will sanction such a doctrine. Her solid
business men have loo just au appreciation
ol tiiu value of public us well as of private
ciedit. Her intelligent property holders
Know too well the importance to the wel
fare of a city of the reputation of honesly
and integrity. Her energetic merchants are
loo well aware that without credit there Is
no eulei prise, aud without enterprise there
.s no employment for working men to con 11
.enance that which would be a mildew and
:i blighl ujton all the lio.-sot Memphis, Bui
it should be remember, d that Memphis is
surrounded with peculiar difficulties. She
has an enormous ciiy debt, equal lo nearly
o.ie-tiflh of her taxable property, for which
she has but little to show. Tiiecounty taxes
01 nneioy (jouuiy are 10 cents on 1110 Hun
dred dollars; llie city taxes are over two er
cent, besides her privilege and federal taxes.
Vou may well imagine how sensitive they
would be on the subject of taxation. But
noiwil hsluudiug these burdens, I cannot
aud will not believe that they will be will
ing to tarnish tile fair name, of their
-tile for tie sake of gaviug twenty cents on
tue hundred dollars, or two dollars 011 the
liiousuud. Remove this question from poK
1 1 ics, and in my opinion, Shelby Counly
will be as sound 011 this question is any
olher county. But in llie struggle for parly
supremacy the county may be luade lo as
sume a position wliich il does not occupy.
Memphis is a city of which the State should
be proud, aud she should bo proud of Hie

You aud your cultivated readers (and all
your readers arc of course cultivated) will
remember that Rasselas, llie Prince of Ab
yssinia, iu his Happy Valley, where every
thing was complete satiskicl ion, and not a
sorrow nor a ripple to mar the blessings ol
unalloyed happiness. Iu such a country
aud in such a place I am now. And, us
Rasselas lound himself, despite his hnppi
hees, beset wilh "eniti," and tied across the
mountains, so I long to get back to Florida,
albeit, it does not compare with the Happy
Valley. Ill all seriousness, this is one oi the
few places where the Garden of F.dcii not
the Kdeii in which Martin Clm..lewil made
an investment of water privileges; but such
an F.deu as Adam of old had might have
been located. A rich soil, luxurious vegeta
tion, the ground covered with a rich carpet,
such as neither Persia, iu all her glory, not
the ten thousand dollars worth Centennial
carpet (they say is on exhibition at Phila
delphia! can possibly compare with, but a
. ar pel ol God's own handiwork, of clover,
blue grass and odoriferous herbs. Tlie.gi
"aiillc forest trees of walnut, elm, sugar
iniiple, oaks, chestnut and holly enchant
the eye ot the traveller who has just enierg
( d from the pine fOrcsls of Florida. As to
the people, tliey are all that fancy could
paint them: clever, hospitable aud kind
hearted. Tlie ladies, God bless them, are
smart, intelligent, lull oi life, pretty, aud in
a word, lovely. The young men are very
much like young men elsewhere. Temper
ance societ les are happily tak ing root among
them, and are doing noble work.
The main occupat ion of the people is ag
riculture. Wheal, corn, 011 Is, rye. barjey,
hay und cotum are tlie productions of the
s 111. Manures are not used or needed; li the
land needs recuperating It Is sown In clover,
which is afterwurtis plow.nl In, and that an
swers all the purpose of manure for several
cars. The land Is simply inexhaustible. It
seils al lroin fifty to seventy-five dollars per
acre. Living here is exceedingly cheap.
With all Hie iui vantages nature has given
it, yet it is not the country for the I111111I
giant. Land is held in such largo triu-ls
that it takes a large capitalist to buy a farm.
As a consequence, young men who do not
inherit an estate, or who wish to carve out
tuelr own destiny, leave here annually for
Arkansas or Texas. The State government
is Democratic, and as. a natural conse
quence tranquil, where all nutes are protec
ted 111 their liberties. Taxes are exceeding
ly low. Suite aud county taxes combined
are only sixty cents ou the hundred dollars.
besides there Is a deduction of a thousaniN
dollars worth of property from taxation,
consequently poor men and the most of the
colored people are altogether exempt from
taxation. Licenses for carrying on avoca
tions are equally low; and yel the s-ople
cry that the taxes are too high! A poll tux
of two dollars from every male adult is rig
idly collected. Luch couuty decides, by
popular vole, whether or not U) have free
schools In Ihecounly, and a tax is levied
for the purpose by the county, and nearly
every counly in the Slate voted for free
scbiKils. Many of the colored people vote
Democratic. The old bugbear ol Dem
ocratic oppression ol the blacks, so freely
discussed by villainous politicians iu Flori
da, has 110 spokesman here. I og-laws,
rales of taxation aud kindred topics are ail
that divide the people in sentiment. That
Hi is state would go lor Tilden and reform
would be like staling that the Dutch have
taken Holland. It Is simply a question of
majorities. The information I have from
reliable sources from Alabama and Missis
sippi is that these Stales are sure lor Tilden
next iNOvenioer My luige majorities, ine
currency question is not being discussed al
all here. I have heard frequent sneers at
borne of the would-be financiers In Congress
who ride it for a bobby. They all want
money and plenty of it, be It soft or hard.
The crojm in tills State are very good, aijd
such is the case iu Georgia and Alabama,
over that portion lie .recently traveled, ex

There has been pleuty of rain. Up to the

and hail storm, it has greatly moderated, so
much so that ou theilh, at 12 m., tho mer

inquiries concerning Florida, Irom peoph;
who seak ol visiting it next Winter. Next
to your own city, Mellonyille seems to be
Is-st known. If you succeed in carrying
Florida next Fall for Tilden and Drew, a
large number of emigrants from Mils Slate
and from the south-west generally, who
heretofore went U Texas, will turn their at
tention to the Ijind of Flowers. The people
