They weut to Black i Moore's stable and
ordered two fast horses and were soon on

until they passed Burke boweli's. They
were going at full speed, and one of the
horses ran ort into a gully and sent the rid

to get out, and turned back towards Colum

From an Occasional Correspondent of
Nashville, hierteuiben UK I visited to
day the slock .arm of Major Campbell

believes strongly in the "extensive" system
of farming, aud intends eoiicen Haling ail

until lie makes It as rich es It can lie made.
When thut is done he wlil try more. Clover

Uie end aimed ut is an average production
of twenty-live bushels of wheal, fifty ol corn
and forty of barley to the acre. These fig

Vi'hile in Nashville recently, on n flying

is eiiariiete;'hilicoi men from our county,
First, we stumbled upon Pitts Dobbins, of

is a smart, young man, full of vim, and of

a very fascinating lady's inau. M'. I-airy
says Pitts gels ou the good kida of all the
gills. Lower down, we eanie across the cot
ton and tobacco house of Gordon Pro's :
Aluerson, where our clever friend, Joe Fos

friend, II. A. Hardison, and near bv, Major
J. F. Gray and It. Gooeti, two excellent

looking up, untl times getting better. A lew

ente'reel the house of George J. Goodrich A

looms for storing cotton we ever saw it is
very, very large, dry and clean, and the first

tho best colttm liien in Nasltvllle. uud sold
ubout av much, as any other firm in the city
last year. He has a lot of cotton on hand,
the best bale being nal net I Tilden." of
course we called iu to see R, Dormaii, lite
great music ir an, or rather dealer iu musi
cal Instruments, sheet music, etc. We f oil ml
him cheerful and in line spirits; said busi
ness was never better, and that ihe demand
lor pianos, and especially for organs, wius
Increasing iamily parlor not considered
furnished without an organ. Has sold -tnu
pianos and as many organs this year. This
is all an evidence Unit, times are getting bet

make of organs. Tho day we were there he
had received -even new pianos anel shipped

tucky and Oiiio outselling ail competitors,
up there, by reason of freights, etc. He re
cently sent a piano to Texas lo 1111 an order,
to a man who hael to haul it L'T.'i miles In a
wagon. He also sent one to San Francisco,
anil an organ to John Shirley Ward, in

greatest music men In the South he Is an

everything lu his line, aud will lot you

him. Nashville is the legitimate business

of them having gone from our own county.
Our County fair.
The twentieth annual Fair of the Maury
Couuty Agricultural Mechanical Horticul
tural and Live Stock Society, was inaugu
rated on Tuesday lust.
The weather was delightful a slight
shower Uie night previous, layed the dip-t
ou the Fulr Ground, and cooled the atmos
phere; indeed, every thing was most suspi
cious lor a charming occasion, but we are
sot ry to say that the ul tendance was very
slim on the two Bret days. We are very
sorry to see our people so lndlti'eieut lo au
enterprise, which, if properly appreciated
aud heartily pulroni-.ed by them, would
add so much to the wealth and develop
ment of the country. Maury County is un
surpassed Ln Its ability to grow rlne stock
and all kind of grain and grass crops. Na
ture has done her part most amply, anil il
only needs that her people should appre
ciate and avail themselves of lier generosi
ty. The ring of Jack aud mule stock was
very creditable, anu some very fine uul
muls were txhibiteef, aDd the eAhibilion of
blooded hogs was peculiarly fine on the lirst
day. showing that our stack-raisers uro go
ing back to their old love, Ou Ihe second
dav, the linest display of Shorthorn untl
Jersey eaHlu thai we huve ever seen, was
made, and also, some superb Southdown,
andCotswoid Sheep. Now, us we know
that there is a groat demand for t his class
of slock, especially ihe lust named, it is
somewhat surprising that there was not
more Interest manifested by those wanting
such slock. We are almost forced to the
conclusion thut the gentlemen directors
have lieeii too eootiouiioj.il in the use of
printers ink. We very much hoie that the
coming days of the Fair will show a vast in
crease in the attendance, and that in our
next issue we may lie able to record a most
satisfactory result of the Fair.

When the Nashville train came down, a

Gov. Porter made but a snort talk, cxeusiiiu

made an able sieech on Federal politics, re

even a synopsis of the speeches ou the oc
Gov. Isham G. Harris w:s loudly culled

hoarseness. Now John M. Bright was in
IriHiueeil and made a long, able and elo

dinner was announced. There were als nr.
