The noted Mich Pearson case was de
cided by the Bedlord county Circuit Court
last Friday. The Jury made it case of mur
der in the second degree aud bis time was
fixed at ten years in the penitentiary.
Manv of our readers will remember that In
1865 Pearson killed Wra. Cheek, of Bedford
county, which has always been regarded by
those acquainted with the circumstances as
a cowardly, cold-blooded murder. Pearson
afterwards escaped and made ' his way to
West Tennessee wnere ne was living in lan-
e'ed security when he was found and arres

perate resistance, shooting Mr. ChaniD in

and his murderer sentenced to ten years in

he could lie sentenced ! It Is an insult to
Justice. The taking of a man's life, of late,
seems to be regarded as a matter ot minor
importance. Defects in the indictments,
leical technicalities and various other obsta
cles so obstruct the road to Justice that too
often It cannot be attained. The guilty look
to the courts for protection with more con
fidence than the iunocent for Justice. This
is wrong. It is a perversion of the objects
for which law was established. Marshall
Dr. Granbery was at the Hurricane

about that; but he says Eider Mooney and

new acquaintances he made. He was es
pecially drawn toward our dear urotiier, K.
G. Irvine, whose preseuceon the ground ex
cited no little sympathy. He l-i now too

this! It would seem that one who in ma

We have learned with regret, that this

of doing good of proclaiming life aud sal

CAMPBELL STATION ITEMS.
Scott and Thomas Craig, two brothers,
have bought Mr. James Smiser's land, pay
ing forty dollars per acre. This Is a very
fair price, considering the stringency of the
times. Land rents as high now as it did a
few years ago when land was selling from
twenty-five to fifty per cent, higher. Rents
ought to come down to correspond with the
prlee of land.
Some few are beginning to pick cotton. It

Protracted meetings seem to be the order
of the day. One was recently held at Rob

sult of the meeting was, twenty-nine added
to the church. Mr. Morton made a good sol
dier in the late war. He is now making a
better one in tbe cause of the Savior. He
has but few equals as a revivalist. He has
at several of his meetings preached two
sermons a day for twelve or fifteen days in
Tbe Baptists have had a fine meeting at
Friendship. They immersed nineteen last
Sunday. There Is some talk of having an
other meeting at Ever Green this Fall. An
amusing Incident, and at tbe same time a
serious one, occurred at Flowers' Church a
few Sundays ago. This Is a Methodist
Church a few"mtles east of Culleoka. The
congregation had assembled, the preacher
had commenced services. Just at this stage
a young gentleman, in handing bis sweet
heart in at the door, ran bis foot under tbe
steps into a yellow jackets' nest. In less
time than it lakes to tell it both of them
were covered. The gentleman took to the
woods; the lady to the honse. The door was
immediately closed to keep the Jackets out.
This excited the wrath of a nest of hornets
and one of bumblebees, which were in the
roof of the house. They made a simultane
ous attack upon the congregation. That
church was cleared In a little less than no
time. The most of them went out through
the windows. It was a worse stampede
than the first Bullrun fight. After the wo
men and children were put at a safe dis
tance, the men formed themselves into a
line of battle, and soon cleaned out their
enemies. When matters quieted down, the
congregation reassembled and wentthrough
with their servioes.

In view of the splendid crops of this and

route, and runs a hack to Waynesboro, ma
king the trip In one day. The distance is
too grent and the roads too bod, to run the
hack line this way long, and Mr. Hughes
will find it a losing business, we fear, unless
he can get connection with Clifton. Our
line is merely a horse route, and travelers
who would go by Waynesboro, if we only
hnd the conveyance, now go down the river
and around by Nashville. If the two Hues
were merged, It would make a distance of
about seventy miles. Then if two hacks
were placed on the road one on the Co

every second day about hail way at the
Rippey old stand, for instance the time
could be made with ease, without injury to

the bank of Bigby, in the rear of Mrs. Lem
Long's, nnd I don't think a nicerplace qould
have been selected 111 the county, to hold a
Good Templar's mass meeting, as you know
we are I he cold water army: here we were
surrounded by water, and between two of
the coldest springs in the couuty. At ten
o'clock the meeting was called to ordor, anil
opened with prayer by Rev, A. A. Baker.
Tnen the address of welcome was delivered
bv the brilliant and eloquent R. U. Riekeus,
and I will fay It wan the iiiest and chastest
impromptu welcome I ever heard. Bob was
liovn for an orator, and all he lacks now of
being one of the most distinguished temper
suee orators, is close study and application.
Bob, we asme you that your, speech was
appreciated by every one.
The orator of the day, Messer Vestal, was
next introduced, and for one hour he held
the andlenee entranced by his usual felicit
hum and entertaining stylo. Messer Is an
old war-horse, that has been lu the harness
tor 4,1 years. He says lie liss not drank a
pint in that time.
Then Bro. John B. Hamilton was intro
duced, whose speech heeds no comment.
He is a Christian philanthropist, that has
devoted htmself to the service ut his God,
and for the benefit of his country, all of his
Ufa, and glorious will be his reward I u the
world to come. I think Bro. Hamilton
made the best temperance speech that I ever
lu ard him make.
Next was Joe B, WQodside, the Irlrti Ora
tor. Every knows Joe's style It is pe,.unai
iv hts own. Joe sePtr.ed happy, and lias a
lieoullar Ihcutty of imparting his enthnsl
asm lo his audience. Joe's speeches are all
original, and are so true that they always
hit the mark, and carry conviction with
them. His speech was full of wit, pathos
and fact, and he keeps his audience on the
rut vie all the time. He is doing much

speeches always have a telling effect.

After the lapse of some weeks In which I
have been quite sick, I again resume ray
pen lo Inscribe a few linen for your paper,
which always "comes promptly like some
messenger of peace, aud sheds a halo of
light aionnd my pillow.
l notice mat some young suigui oi ine
quill who signs himself Amerlcus Vuxpo
ri, aud shelters beneath the wings of the
Journal, as correspondent from Dry Creek,
has rather overleaped the bouuds, as Is nat
ural for fledglings on their first flight. In
the first place, in speaking of fevers, he says,
"that toe Texas ever nas seizeu .nr. ijud
Riddle, and he will soon begin his 10th an
nual trip through to Texas." Now, I, in
defense of Mr. Riddle, say npon good au
thorlty, that he was uever in Texas, and as
to bis trip "clear around the world every
vear," 1 venture the assertion that he was
never forty miles Irom Mt. Pleasant. Again
he states that Will Uelmick said Jap McC.
"mnv be a President, and really thinks he
will be a Governor, and that he knows he
wil! hold a bride by the hand if Dr. Bishop
don't." Now, Mr. Helmick says it Is false,
and that he never said such a thing in his
lire, tie lurtner suites inai mere is a vener
able bachelor In this neighborhood, who
is forty five years old, but passes forfweilty
five, who goes to see a young lady of thir
teen summers, but ho says she Is fifteen.
Now, I am personally acquainted with said
bachelor, and know him to be only 26 yean,
of age he never had a grey hair In his
head, nor does he black it, as said fledgling
asserts of him. I am sorry for the youth,
who being jUted, envies others their pleas
ure of visiting girls too old for liini. Again
he wants to know what fa the matter with
Dr. Williams, who he says oe has 6een ri
ding out after sunset with gloveson, and an
umbrella over him. Now the question ari
ses in my mind how ho could see him "sev
eral times" when be doesn't live In a mile
of the public road. The fact is, the Doctor
was riding In from a visit to a- patient, In
stead ot out.
Hespeaksof a revival at Stones' Chapel,
n ud represents the wives after their bus
bauds, whom hesays, were evading at "the
rate of three steps to the second and nine
feet at a step." Now this is highly prepos
terous, and nothing so sacred as a church
should be presented in such a light? before
the world. In another article '.Inch I will
not notice so miiintely.inwhich he describes
a young lady, who is rather old for him. he
spells chapel with two p's, -whereas Wefb
ster b isouly one, and spells hazej with an
6, w Were Webster has at z.
He1 wishes Vuxporus to write a book on
"sufflcaiion by gas-light." Now I never ad
vised much In my life, but would ask our
pet to examine his Chemistry, and see if
anybody ever sutlbcated, or if there 'is. any
danger of any one eyer frotn gaslight; it of
ten happeuslh'nl they sufibcate from God
wit bout the light. I am done, and as he
requested to hear from mo I will admonish
hi in to represent news in its true light if
lie wishes to be a successful writer. Throw
aside all such folly, for such composition is
iu the name of the immortal Socrates'. 'Too
thin." ' ' ' I
The revival at Dry Creek, which has been
so gloriously couducted by the pastor, Rev.
Mr. Seay, and still continues, ts doiug mncb
good for the Mastei's vineyard.
The new church at Dry Creek In ftvst ap
proaching completion; there Is no debt
overhanging it, tor all is paid up so far. It
Is the desigu to have it finished and dedi
cated ere the noble pastor, whose untiring
cllorts aroused the people to this work
quits this circuit,
Tlie roads which have been recently work
ed on are in a better condition now than
anytime since the war.
The sorghum crop is very large In this vi
cinity, and the prospect lor an abundant
yield is at this time good. There IS a' com
plaint among the farmers that they can't
get mills to grind, and evaporators to cook
it. Some capital might be profitably inves

W. . Fulllon.
Mr. W. D. Fullton, the nominee of the
Convention for State Senator from the dis
trict composed of the counties of Maury
and Williamson, was born In Athens, Ga.,
about fifty-two years ago. He has been for
seven years a resident of old Williamson,
and has been thoroughly identified with
her people and her interests. During this
time he has taken an active and promi
nent part iu all public movements. While
a young man he headed a cavalry com pa
ny, and marched, beneath the stars and
stripes, on the plains of Mexico. In that
glorious struggle, which added a magnifi
cent empire to our domain, he fought with
gallantry, until the Hag of his country wav
ed in triumph over the Halls of the Monte
zumas. W hUe a b -y, he occupied the posi
tion of teller, and then cashier, of a large
bank in his native State, For years he was
superintendent of one of Georgia's magnifi
cent railroads. He finally moved to Ten
nessee, superintending the bunding of the
Max eU House for his bosom friend, John
Overton. He Is an Elder In the Presbyte
rian Church, and has been for years.
Thoroughly in accord with his party, both
State and National, he is, ot course, a strict
party man. on the important subject of
our school interests, he is ardently in favor
ol a modification of the system so as to ex-
tend the thousands ol dollars lavished up
on officials in the education of the youth of
tLa land, rue Democratic party nas al
ways been in favor of the education of tbe
children of the country. In every State
Constitution in this broad land the educa
tion of the children is amply provided for.
Nlne-tentns or inose constitutions were
constructed by skilled architects of the
Democratic party. The party is now and
forever pledged to an earnest and honest
support of popular education. To all the
principles of the party, both State and Na
tional, tne uisiinguisueu nominee yieias a
loyal adherence, and pledges himself to see
that tbe people sutler no harm in the l"p-

called to order by our W. C. Templar. The
first business was to see if there were anv
candidates in waiting, and it was that there
were thirteen who wisnea to Decome mem

to loin us aud help us to drive king Alcohol
out of the laud. This lodge numbers some
thing near two hundred members, aud is In
a flourishing and prosperous condition, for
from intemperance we find empires have
lisenand fallen, dynasties have dissolved
nnd melted away, Statesmen and thieves,
philosophers and poets have lived and died
under tbe influence of John Parleycorn. So
seeing this, let us unite our influences to

John barleycorn from ourcountry.for united
we stand divided, we fall; so let us stand
united together like theSamasetwiiiH,80 that
there is no creaking or giving away, r ur
thermore, I would say to those that have
not as yet joined us, to try all things and
hold fast to that which is good, so that they
mnv live to a good and noble purpose.
Crops look nne to yieiu aounaauiiy; corn

Irish potatoes are only moderate, very

about as much cane in the Mt. Joy neigh

dants were: Mr. J. Porter and Miss A. Pot

The bride looked beautiful, as she came
leaning confidingly on the arm ot htm on
whom her future happiness depends. Mr.
McMeen has bten greatly blest In securing
such a jewel for a wife. It is said by many
that he could not have done better had he
searched the county over. Doubtless she
has been lucky too In securing such an ln
dustrious, temperate and good man as her
husband. May their life ever be one of
pleasure. The supper was splendid and
abundant. Suppose there were seventy
five persons presn.t. Ail seemed to enjoy
themselves very much ludeed. '.
Last Sunday morn at S o'clock, Miss Alice

week's HkKAI.u, was married to her faith

cordially. The bride was looking unusual
ly sweet and lovely.- Thong'i loth wefo
young they seemed not to ue tne least exel

suited. Tissaid they have been loving each

other long and earnestly. May their lile
ever be one of bright sunshine. Miss Laura
Oakley and Mr. Galloway were the waiters.
Air. George Sed berry made the bride a pres.
ent of a very flne calje. Mr. K. Nichols got
the ring, and, by tho by, it Is quite possible
that he may be the next one to mairy. The
bridal parly, lnrompaiiy with their friends,
went to Knob Creek to preaching, after
which all returned to Mr. Vestal's, and par
took of the suitable dinner, which was good
and nlw, and to which all did Justice. The
people will be much pleased to have Mbs
Alice for a neigh bor again. There are otht-r

This popular resort, either for health or
pleasure, we find 111 a prosperous condition,
eyen at t'MS tune of the season. It wr.s
opened tne nrsi 01 june, ana irom lus very
oiM'Uiug, has had a large crowd; part of the
time during the heated season, it was tilled
to overflowing. We arrived there on tho
tlth, and expected to find the crowd dwind
ling away, aud were very agreeahiy sur
prised to find fully two hundred people In
tlie Jackson House. This peaki3 well for
the Sprlugs, and is a more substantial proof

The many visitors to the Centennial, and
tho remarkably healthy condition of the
south, does not seem to hare affected the
prosperity of this watering place, as it Inus
all the others of the south; and we heartilv
congratulate our li iend Capt. Toiynur, who
has charge of t he Jackson House: We, but
echo the ijieiiliments of each and every
suei that has ever been tlier, v-lien we say
that he is most emphatically the right man
in the right place. His genial manners and
accommodating disposition has made him
a favorite all c.'ur the outh; and he richlv
deserves the liberal patronage that he re
ceives, Mr. R. M. Buuk, who many of our readers
know, Is ou hand. He is so accommodating
that he never complains, if a guest asks
him tor a tooth pick, evtu though he Is
reading the most pathetic part of "Luclle,"
and it is said thnl he has worn out several
different copies this summer. When he is
not reading poetrv, he whistles sentiment,.!
music; such as "Tlie girl I left In-blud me."
Of course that girl Is in Columbia, and wo
bet we know who it is, "Orr" can guess.
We bope vry much that Mr. Bugg will re
turn to Columbia, and that he may even
tually be caught by a "bird;" though (hat
bird does not belong to the speofeS' Uia

(AffecLionaUly inscribed to my sister Jane.)
On that bright golden shore.
Many loved ones have passed o'er;
But there's one more than another,
.Seems to be watching for his mother.
For she was not by his side
Many miles did them divide;
And he did not get to write
On that dark and fearful night.
That night he whispered to his brother,
Harry, I want to write to mother,
That it may by her be read,
When I m numbered with the dead.
But his dear spirit had to leave.
And his brother was left to grieve,
For t heir mother was far away.
And could not a word of comfort say.
Tbe Lord had in mercy sent
For Adrian's spirit, and home it went.
To that bright golden shore
There to dwell forever more.
Soon an angel baud was sent,
Aud to his sister's home It went
There they found a little child,
one that was very meek and mUd.
They said to her, Edith, go
Tell your grand-ma, thus, and so,
That the holy angels eoine.
And took your uncle Ady home.
Now, dear sister be not grieved,
For Jesus has to you revealed,
That your child is safe at rest,
es, with all those loved ones blessed.
But try to do vour Father' will
That you, your mission may liilflll;
So when life's trials wit h 1-..11 am nW
You'll meet them all ou that bright shore

You are free, and all parties, nt the Nortli

1 ne ouidens winch are oppressing vou art
Imposed by your ownjioiitical friends. Tin
Republican party taxes your clothing ami
your food, your Inbor and your income. Th
average Federal tax upon every member ot
your family is seven dollars per head,
whether you have any property or not. The
Slate Government taxes men according tc
their properly; tlie Federal Goverunient
l ixes them iii proportion to yvhut they use.
L'nder this system tlie poor laborer often
pays more tliau the rich landowner. Even
man from w ho:u yuu buy anything is ii
taxgalherer. You uav taxes unon vour blan
kets, upon your woolen and cotton clothing,
your salt, your iron, and in fact upon every
thing almost which you wear or use. And
this is what is keeping you, as well ns the
white people around you. roor. The Gov

U reacting ou you with terrible effect. If
