days- Two weeks ago, he left home tor the
Centennial, In the buoyancy of health, with
bright promise of a long, useful and pros
perous life. His fine constitution and snlen-
uu pnysique gave promise oi nis reacning a
ripe old age. But alas i jr human hopes!
He returns from his briel trip just in time
to die at home. He was the pride and colu
mn oi nis widowed mother s Heart, lier
youngest child, her darling son. His older
brothel's had married and lell the paternal
root, but he remained with her, attending to
ber business charming her lonely hours
by his presence and lively conversation
going with her to chinch; aud, in short, as a
iiiitiuui, loving, kind and uuuiui sou was
all that a fond mother could desire. He was
esteemed bv all who knew nim, and was a
great favorite in the circle of his intimate
(riends. v lien the announcement was
made at camp-meeting on Sunday morning
that James M. Bailey was dead, it produced,
a feeling of profound sorrow, and caused the
deepest gioom, like a murky cloud to settle
iion me neaasoi an mat large ussemoiy.
He was ever affectionate and warmhearted
to liis mother, but when starting on his last
trip, as if he had some presentiment of im
pending evil, while he kissed her good-bye,
his manly frame was shaken by emotion,
and the tear glistened in his eye, as he said,
"Mother, 1 never felt so bad ou leaving you
before." Little did she then think that so
soon she would be called fo give him up.
W hen he returned home his mind was wau-
dei in.', but on the next morning his con
sciousness returned to him, and he convers
ed with his mother and other relatives aud
friends cheerlully. and was greatly rejoiced
to find himself at home, with his own loved
mother watching over him. All were hope
ful that he would soon be well, but the im
provement was only temporary. The
alarming symptoms soon returned with iu-
creiuseu violence, aud in a lew short bom's
he yielded his noble spirit to the God wiio
gave it. Our friend was a firm believer iu
the christian religion, was charitable and
benevolent, and a friend to the poor. He
never matle any profession of religion, but
always said that lie intended at somefutiire
time to become a laborer lu the Iord's vine

sha'.t be with me in Paradise." The funeral
services were performed by Dr. Wilkes, and
the remains were followed to their last
resting place, in the Sanfont Cemetery, by-
one of the largest funeral processions ever
seen iu this neighborhood.

To the Editors of the Herald and Mail:
I often recall those brown Autumn davs
of 71 and 72, when .ve would go out to Hur
ricaue Camp-meeting. 1 will make the
statemeut that few of Dr. A. L. I. Green's
friends hold him oftener in memory thau I
do. I never tire of listening at camp-meet-
lug songs, such as "Old Ship of Zion," "You
have a right to the Tree of Life," "Oh, you
must be a lover of the Lord," "Why don't
you go on, you are very near there." "Are
your lamps ail burning," "By the grace of
God, 1 11 meet you," liesides the long list
that I do not remember. Kmotional sing
ing, or sensational singing, or whatever it
may oe designated, is being revived every
where. Highly scientific sacred music "is
being ignoied lu many of the most lushion-
aole churches with congregations of tlie
most exacting taste.

who have no heart: and all who Plav or

the most thorough knowledge of artincial
music, have no souls. They are little and

ring my essay to a conclusion and to a
poiul, 1 will say to you, never marry a
woman who sings aud plays with faultless
taste and style the highest order of learned
music. Is in their neck.
I am done with women forever. It's bit
terer than death lor an honest man to pass
through the ordeal of conviction that xcom-

intent to deceive." Read old Solomon he
knew what he was talking about.
Mr. James Bailey was buried at the Brick
Church graveyard last Monday. He took
sick ou his way back from the Centennial,
and died soon after his return home. He
was a genial, warm hearted, high spirited
young man, and his sudden death has caus
ed great distress among his large circle of
friends. The old graveyard is located in a
very quiet, out-of-the-way place, and never
did I leel more solemn al a funeral than I
did last Mouday. The fact is, I believe the
burial ol a dead body iu a quiet, secluded
country graveyard is lar more Impressive
than iu tne city cemeteries. Tlie trees, the
mils and valleys an make me leel like I am

owners, to.i. It is Watch, Tige, ami King,
and their li lends, thai are standing across
the paths of progress u:id improvement in
our agriculture, aud il is as little as we
should ask.thut they shall cease to choke
up any ol the avenues by which we may I
.better our condition.
tjiieat Britain contains t hilly-seven mil
lions of acres within its urea, and they keep
thirty-four and a half millions ofsht'ep, with
an immense number of other stock besides,
ihe State of Tennessee contains twenty
seven millions of acres. With the immense
urea of barrens, ami mountain slopes un
sitited for auy other purpose, there could be
kept millions ol sheep and cattle with small
expense, antl on onr unproved lauds there
could be kept equal to the ratio of Great
Britain. Their climate is as far north as tne
Camillas, aud tempered onlyby the sur
rounding seas, while ours is'iu a greatlv
milder and better climate, requn ing winter
feeding only a few weeks timing our most
rigorous cold seasons. Providence has done
us much iu our luvor as for any portion ot
the world. We should help ourselves lo her
iHiuntics. At any rule, experience will de
monstrate to the intelligent farmer how far
he call increase his (locks nol to crowd out
other important industries. It Is estimated
that the laiiuersof Oreat Britain make a
pivfu of seventeen uoiliirs per acre ou' their
seventeen millions of pasture lands. We
would do a gr-at deal better than we are
now doing with greatly less than they rea
lize. Probably some intelligent old gentleman
not overly sanguinejufier a life time til hard
experience, may raise the olyci.tion that
whenever any business becomes profitable,
evcrybtn'.y rushes Into it und breaks it
down. 'I heir opinions are always wor hy
or respectful consideration, for nearly nl
wuys they lire right. II has not vet broken
down in tireat Bi'iluiu. They slaughter
eleven million annually, and no doubt they
would slaughter a greater number if they
could spare them from their flocks. .We im
port annually into this country twenty mil
lions o! ikhiiuIs of w-to', und nioro than fif
ty inillions'of dollars in woolen gootls from
foreign countries. If we will proi!i;ce the
wool for our factories nearly the whole of
that sum will he saved to this country. We
have forty- four millions of people lo be fed.
No nation of such large population ever
had cheap meat long at a lime. Tint ten
dency in the markets is nearly always to
advance to higher prices. That fact bus
been demonstrated always when a people
have become so numerous. Hence the
probability that alter the people of Tennes
