Never was the party so thoroughly and

this was brought about by only one man or

Mr. John B. Bond is Chairman and Mr.

lion. Gustavus A. Henry, the eagle ora

week at our barbecue, a historic incident
which is worthy of publication. He said
that in a conversation with John tiuincy
Adams once, that renowned statesmen,
(whom the English say Is the only Presi
dent America ever hadwho was educated lor
the position I said lie. had been in Congress
many years, nd had seen many of the re
nowned men of the world, and that among
them all, he iiad lound none who had so fill
ed his idea of a grand, true orator as a cer
tain Teimesseau lie had once heard. The
Eagle Orator blushed modestly, thinking it
was himself, and did not have the courage
for sometime to ask who the wonderful Ten
nessee orator was. Air. Adams, then an ex
Presiilent, and the most cultured man that
has ever occupied Hie halls of Congress or
the Presidential chair, and himself called
the old man eloquent," replied: "Sir, that
man, was named lion. Barclay Martin.
His commanding stature, head of heroic
mould, and majestic voice, make him my
ideal orrlor. liis untlerl'ims are iucoinpaia

only 011 certain days of the week, and on
m"-"6 "ays there is always an eager crowd
ot loreigners gazing upon the tomb of the
great emperor. The crypt is twenty feet
deep and thirty-six feet in diameter, situat

vaiuies 1 went to the Palace tind garden of
the Luxembourg. The museum contains a
large collection of statuary, and the finest
modern paintinirs. The irani., 1 think
excel any in Paris. The stat uarv Is fine, but,
according to an American's ideas, open lo
criticism. The Fontaine de Medicies is one
of the great attractions of the gardens; It is
01 ii.mieuieu wau a piece 01 sculpture,
(Polyphemus surprising Acis and Galateal
which Is greatly admiretl. Near thn Palais
du Luxembourg is the Pantheon. It Is an
immense building in the Urwco-Roman
style of architecture. From the top of the
dome, which may be reached by an ascent
of steps, may be had one of the finest
views of Paris. Visitors are conducted by a
custodian through the dark vaults beneath
the building, where are shown the tombs of
Rousseau, Voltaire, Lagrange, and the oth
er eminent men. Next proceeded to the
Jardin des Flantes. They are very exten
sive and beautifully arranged. The collec
tion of animals Is larje, but not so good as
the Zoological Gardens of London. In
point of arrangement, and the manner in
which they are kept, are far Inferior.
My experience in finding Notre Dame last
Sunday was rather amusing. Stepped up to
one of the gens d' armes and gave him
a little French. He looked at me as If he
thought I was speaking Hebrew, assumed
a puzzled look, and said iu Kuglisli, which
was about the same quality as my French,
"Not a dam," "not a dam," "I knows not
what you means by 'not a dam.' " I made
the second attempt, and by giving a more
twisting turn to the "r" he seemed to com
prehend, and gave me very uncertain direc
tions as to how I could find the Cathedral.
However, I reached it in time for services,
by which I was not very much impressed or
edified, as it was all In French; and I xvas
only touched t y a sense of the ridiculous at
the performance however, the music was
excellent. The French have just cause to
be proud of their Cathedral, for It is a grand
and wonderful piece of architecture. The
most striking part is the facade which dates
from the first quarter of the 13th century.
The interior is somewhat gorgeous, and has
not the solemn grandeur of Westminster
Abbey, nor the Immense proportions of
St. Paul s. In the Nouvelle Saoistie are the
"crown of thorns," a fragment of the "true
cross," the lance with which the Saviour's
side was pierced, aud other relics.
I think the most sumptuous edifice In
Paris is the Opera House. Its interior is
mugufleent and gorfeous beyond descrip
tion. You can Imagine its apftjarance
when thesiteand building cost upwards of
46,mu,0ii0 francs. At the end of the play, the
stair case, which affords room for fifty per
sons abreast, is a sceue worth witnessing.
The Palais Koyal is a great place, and
much frequented by Americans, attracted
by it flue jewelry shops, Ac. During the
evening, with its numberless eras liehts.and
brilliantly illuminated shops and cafes it is
one of the most brilliant resorts in Paris.
1 would advise every Amerfcan- who con
templates a protracted stay In Paris to ac
quire some knowledge of the French lan
guage before coming here, as It would pre
vent a great many perplexing and ridicu
lous situations, and unnecessary expendi
tures. Tb French urn proverbially polita, and
although it may be superficial, one has to
accustom himself to the indlspensible sil
votis plait. An Englishman and myself en
tered a restaurant the other dav. and the
difficulty with which we succeeded in get
ting a meal was rather amusing, we called
for itHjiiton and were handed a bowl of ftout'i
lon or soup, added the sil vous plait when
the waiter exclaimed " a plate, a plate," and
hauded us that article.

eminently worthy of the people's esteem

When Columbus set out on his voyage of
uiscovery ne expectea to nua a nearer
route to India, llence, he called the first
islands he saw West India Islands, or West
inaies. so the native touna upon tne west
ern Continent was called Indian. The first
European settlers here observed about this
time or the year a peculiar kind of weather
uiiierent from anything Known to tne .base
ern Continent, which they termed Indian
nummer. The peculiar weather character
ized by a hazy atmosphere, cool frosty
nights aud days of warm sunshine, Jis
well suited 10 the ripening 01 corn, which
likewise obtained the appellation of Indian.
During this season there is scarcely any
rain, and the early emigrants to this State,

themselves of this favorable period for
moving from the older parts of a country to
tne iron tiers.

On Saturday night. October SWth. we har
nessed old Jim, aud was soon on our way.
A'pleasaut moonlight ride of 3 hours brought
us to J. T. Derryberry's, where we passed
the night very pleasantly. Sunday morning,
abont ft o'clock, I mounted old Jim aud was
soon off to see the "prettiest girl in the
county," I soon landed at the place, and
passed a few pleasant moments. About 10
o'clock, we mounted our horses, and a short
ride brought us to Lasea; here we beard a
good sermon by A. J. Compton. After ser
vices were over, xve mounted our horses,
and were soon off to J. S. Caldwell's; a ride of
3 miles landed us at the place, and were
soon Invited to walk out to a nice dinner, to
which we all did our part. After dinner.
we went to Lasea to hear Prof. Derryberry
sing: here we passed many pleasaut mo
ments. After tlie singing was over, part of
the crowd went to r. m. noicomo's. Aner
supper, we went to Overton's school-house;
here we heard a good sermon by Elder W. T.
Lee; after preaching was over, we took our
girls home, ana time soon came to uiu mem
good-bye; but alas,
'When friends on earth together meet,
And pass the flying momenta sweet,
Time a rapid motions soon compel,
With grief to say dear friends farewell."
We bid them good-bye, and roqe over to

of the past. Monday, we harnessed "old

hope the time will soon come when we can
take another trip to the same place.

Many golden days aud hours for improve

interest transpired In and around our little
village since last 1 wrote.
I am happy to know that while time is
passing so rapidly by, that our farmers,
merchants and mechanics are not idle, but
busily engaged In pushing forward their va
rious branches of trade. Farmers are busily
engaged in sowing wheat, picking cotton,
and disposing of il to our wide awake mer
chants, and storing away their corn to
await the opening ot the market. Corn is
thought bv many not to be so good as it was
last year. I feel that I can Dot pass this sub
ject without mentioning the rapid progress
maoe in tne erection 01 tne new institute,
under the efficient management of Mr. F'. Al.

ciation by being liberal with our music, by
Serenades or Open Air Concerts. We have
intended to serenade each subscriber; if
any hax-e been overlooked it was wholly
unintentional on our part, ana 11 tney win
mention it to some member of the Band,
("better late than never,") they shall hear It
yet. The Open Air Concerts of last season
would have been repeated this summer, bad
not several members been absent. We pro
posed them late in the season if tbe citizens
would erect a Band Stand In some central
location, the Athenaeum grounds not being
at our service after the session commenced.
Now a few words about the trouble and
expense of keeping up a band. Few of you
that have had no experience ever think of
this. We have been organized nearly two
years; with a very few exceptions we have
met for practice two nights in each week.
This is necessary to have a good Band, and
is ot itself a great tax upon us, as every oue
win aumit, we nave accumulated in me
time nearly two hundred different pieces of
niiivii. ot an au.irii.rn nci ( fn. ii,i f I
will admit, xve nave accumulated in tue
music, at an average cost of fifty cents for
each piece. Then for fuel, lights, repairs ou
instruments, arumiieaus, street lanterns,
we have expended more thau another hun
dred dollars. Tell us, can rational and in
telligent beings expect us to SDnr! our time
and money iu this way and still play for
noining-.- as a community, we are satisfied
you do not, though there are some that
dod't seem to realize the amount of trouble
ana expeuse necessary to sustain a Band.
If we had wealth or fat? offices with good
salaries coming in whether we were at home
or not, we might be more liberal and patri
rtic. Being less patriotic than some others
in tins respect, we are compelled to have
pay for our time. The instruments belong
to the stockholders, not to the Band; if they
think they can put them into other and bet
ter hands, they are at their service, or if
there is any individual subscriber that feels
that he has not already got value received
for the amount of his subscription. If he
will let us know the amouut he subscribed
xve will refund the money to him, that will
relieve us from any further obligation he
might consider us under. Below we ap

A Flying visit to Culleoka.
On last Saturday evening 1 ran down to
the new and beautiful little village of Cul
leoka. On Sunday morning I attended Sun
day School, and was pleased to find so much
Interest manifested In this great work. The
school numbers about one hundred and
twenty-five scholars. After Sunday-school,
while strolling over the town, I heard of tbe
death of an old and pious woman, Mrs. Su
san Lancaster, who died on tbe 5th lost.,
near Culleoka, aged UJ years; was a member
of the Baptist Church for tio years, aud lived
a pious and exemplary life; and although
her light has gone out theie, 11 will be relit
by tbe light that issues trom the Great
White Throne. She was the mother of nine
chlldren;iad a good many grandchildren
and great grandchildren. Of her posterity,
there are twenty voters, and am glad to say
they are all Democrats.
Culleoka has a fine male and female
school in a flourishing conditlbn, number
ing one hundred pupils. This school Is con
ducted by Prof. Webb, who Is one of our
most distinguished men, and tbe great
wonder Is that the school Is not advertised
In the Herald.

Died In this city. In the 26th year of his
age, Mr. John W. Corpler, of Nashville, snn
of Mr. John W. Corpler, of Lincoln County.
The deceased was united in marriage to
Miss Mattle Grant, daughter of the late Dr.
Edwin Grant, of Abingdon, Va., who, with
one child, survives him. Mr. Corpler was a
stroDg church man. He was baptled and
Joined the Methodist Episcopal Ciurch,
South, in his 16th year, and since that time
has lived a consistent and worthy member
until the day of bis great and noble heart
xvas stilled In death. He was a polite, ener
getic and enterprising gentleman. He was
universally known as a buslnets man of
honor and Integrity; and as a friend, warm
and sincere; liberal and charitable In deal
ing with bis fellow-men, and of an affectlon
hle and sympathizing disposition. His de
mise has created a void that will be keenly
felt by his family and friends. For months
previous to his death, be traveled vainly in
search of health, consulting many of the
most distinguished physicians in the South.
He came to Columbia and stopped at the
liosititahle home of his brother-in-law. CaDt.
James D. Thomas, thinking he would be
able to attend Conference, but alas ! he grew
too feeble to do so; yet he enjoyed the visits
and prayers of the ministers at bis bedside
to a great extent, and again he received the
medical attention of a favorite physician,
Dr. A. L. Pillow, and often breathed a pray
er to Heaven to bless the doctor's kind and
noble heart. On Sunday, before he died, he
requested Rev. J. A- Orraan, whom he had
long known and loved as a minister, to bap
tize his little daughter by his bedside, and
administer to him the sacrament of the
Uird's Supper, which he did In quite a feels
ing and imposing manner, ne requesteu to
lie buried at Rose Hill, and that his funeral
services should be conducted by Rev. Mr.
Orman, and that "Asleep in Jesus," and
Nearer My God to Thee," should be sung on
that occasion. Farewell ! sadly we miss thy
bright presence here, but rejoice to know
that thou art "sweetly sleeping in Jesus,"
and silently waiting the Judgment day.
Ycais will roll by In Time's winged flight,
but still one heart will mourn your loss.

The faces of Democrats looked long and
sad yesterday, on account of the bad news.
Just before night, however, news came that
Tilden was undoubtedly elected, when every
body became full to overflowing with Joy it
bubbled. At night, Mr. Taliaferro, of Giles,
was called on for a speech, and was Intro
duced by Col. Cooper as "The Tall Sycamore
of the Richland." Mr. Taliaferro made a
splendid speech which was greeted with great
cheers. He patd; Whitthorne a noble tribute.
Tom Jones, Jr. made a beautiful speech. W,

could prJrit It in full. He alluded with tha
iancy of a poet and the elonuence of a born
orator to each Democratic Stale. He told the
negroes present thatlt was the first moment
that they had ever been tree, the shackles of
party slavery had bound them hand aud

MO II LAW IN PERRY.
Our adjoining county Perry, has gained
for herself a very unenviable nolo riety by
murders, fights, lynching, etc., within her
borders. The latest from there is calculated
to send a thrill of horror through the mind,
and equals any tale of border violence. It
appears Mr. Thomas French, of Linden, was
arrested last week on suspicion of being at
the head of a plot to burn and sck the town.
At his own request he waa locked up In tue
Jail for safety. At a late hour at nig at a mob
of about fifty men went to the Jail and broke
down the doors with sledge hammers, tun!
shot F'rench riddled him with bullets, and
lelt him dead. No oue knew, or at least no
one sought to know, who composed the
lynching party, it is a shame and a disgrace
to the good nam of the people of l"erry .that
a man merely suspected of au attempted
crime should thus be butchered without the
shadow of a trial. Of course no trouble will
be taken to find out the guilty parties, or to
bring them to Justice, for such horrors as the
oue above related are ol periodical occur
rence in the "dark and bloody ground" of
Perry. Wayne Citizen,
