ii appreciative audience assembled on
Fialay evening last, at the Methodlsi
Church, to hear Prof. Joynes, and to ap
prove by their nreseuce, the recent good
work ol Rev. Mr. Oi man, Dr. T. B. Rams,
ind ex-Mayor Kuhn, iu organizing a
course ot lectures" to continue lor some

lecturer, and cougratulai.il the audieuct
upon their goisl lorfuno in being able to
hear a distinguished scholar, who had made
modern language a life long study, dis
course upon "Our Mol her Tougue."
The lecturer first considered the Phrase
Mother Tontine" as itself typical of a nobie
language: He regarded it as significant ol
iliHl devotion, of pride iu the ancestry and
ihehistory of thelanguagc also.ol'su inher
itance in the language itself its literaturc-
uud its powers, as a possession, aud cs ui.

Third The lecturer considered the devel
opment of these elements in historic forui
and in literature. Fnglish is the most mod
era of languages, whieh has departed fan li
es t from the ancient type, and has develop
ed most perfectly the naraclerislic forms oi
modern thought and expression. This
point was developed and illustated. The
leading characteristics of the Fnglisii inn
truage were exeni pliricd, ,ni..l ils supreiiutcv.
in every field uf modern thought and liteia
luie, were emphasized.
The relations of Kiigl.sh to the classical
languages were touched upon with a strong
pie.t lor classical study.
Tne hcturer then considered the rank ol
Fuglish among liviug languages, as shown
by the testimony of the greatest scholars,
claiming lor il Ihe first place iu power and
importance. The desliuy of such a Inn
guage he dared not speak of; he character
ized it as a supreme language o. modern
civilization and liberty tue fit instrument
of the greatest race of the modern world.
Iu c inclusion, t he speaker spoke of F.n
glish us the language of Christianity; with
reference to ils birth, its history, ils litera
ture uud philosophy, he traced ils sympa
thy with Christian truth and development.
Its fitness as the language of Christian
leaching, and ol Hie Christian Missionary,
whs exemplified Willi teiei-eme to ihe char
acteristics already considered. If ie Hebrew,
the Greek, the Latin, were sketched as the
languages of religion in the past, aud the
Kuglish was claimed as the Christian lan
guage oi the present and of the future.
Finally, the lecturer drew a contrast be
tween the language aud history of the Ro
man, oi the Pagan, and the L'nglish nations
ol the Christian world, aud claimed for Hi
liilter a desl iuy and a glory as much supe
rior lo the Roman as Christianity was su
perior to Paganism.

skeleton of Pro:. Joy nes' warm, suggestive
presentation of the subject t 111 the whole

felicity of expression ran like embroider.,
through the whole address. To give some
idea of these, we note several:
l.aonauc, a a ixiiiii ui national union
was very forcibly brought out. The English
tougue, said the speaker, bound the Ainei i
cau nation as everlastingly together as tin
Mississippi River. Euglish was now spok-

ings; yet, we have only a faint conception
of its power and future counuests. Imagina
tion could uot coueelve the grandeur of its
destiny. The nation would live lougerthuii
the language. The passage was a superb
oue. It was wholly national, luspirlug and
honorable to the speaker.
The eclectic character of the language was
also finely expressed. How it borrowed
from every quarter of the globe, from Asia,
Kurope, Africa aud the Isles of the sea; it
borrowed not as a beggar, but as a million
aire it borrowed to enrich posterity and
humanity. It lent as well as borrowed. Th
case ol Japan was cited, where the Kuglish
language had lately been adopted as the
speech of the Liupliv. A notable fact,
that the oldest nation iu the world has bor
rowed for every day use, Ihe language of the

farming has ooeu my general pursuusiui o

At this date the Iarmers are operatitag
extensively on their farms, aud the nio-i

We are permitted topublish the following
1 tter from Col. Geo. r. Akers, a gentleman
thoroughly informed upon the subject ol
which he writes to Hon. W. N. Cowdeu,
K-pteseulative from Marshnll county:
N.taiivu.i.E, February 5th, 1K77.
3Ty Ih ar ,SV-.- Jn reply to your esteemed
fi.vor of the 2sm ult., ou the subjeul of hidi
itml their culture in Tennessee, the adapta
bility of our glreaais and climate to then
;.'.oductlon, and the possibility of re supply--ug
our streams with their primitive abuud
i' nee, 1-will say Hint tho waters and climate
o: our State are as favorable to fish culture
as any I know in the Union. Our rivers,
liikesKiid ri vuiets are generally clear, pure,
and suflicientiy cool for the healthful and
rapid rearing of the best varieties of game
i--:i. Thev lean from the hills aud iitouu-
tains In beauty and eladuess, and make
iTielr way through valleys and plains, the
11. Oct .attractive und fertilo in America. 1
lvgrt t to say that most of them havo been
despoiled of their fiuuy treasures, by their
ruthless aud unnecessary slaughter by daisy
spoil-meu and ot-huuters, who use tin
trap, uei , eine, gun, gig spike and every
c--licelvable destructive means of killlrJC.
Tim is not generally for prudent aud exhll-
ei.-iinig spoi t or nir orofit: but noiu an un-
r - lleL-tlng propensity, which seems to be
natural with those who engage in it, wit!..
tiul relereuce to preseut ues or to futui
snpply. Iu t his way it has come that ft v
or our streams, especially In Middle unit
Wt st Tennessee, have sufficient in them,
c: ti t r to supply our tables or to reward the
exertions 01 the eager and industrious au
g ' 1 r.
i ll's is deeply to be regretted, fo.' ourpeo
p e. j oung and old, are thus deprived ol 01c
1 ihe purest, healthiest and most -sxhilpra-1
ing 01 out-door recreatious, and their tables
of one of the choicest articles of human diet.
1 11 our cities large numbers of fish are Im
ported; hut it cannot be denied that these
ti-h, several days dead, are never so good n-.
wnen entirely iresn, and are often positive
ly un wholesome mod.
i o remedy this condition of atfairs two
thihes are required: First, absolute protec
tion from the wanton destruction of fish;
and, seeoud, the restocking of our likes and
si 1. ams. lime, try slow nrocesses. wouni re
supply m many years, the original stock of
native nsii, except sucli varieties as nav
been wholly annihilated. But this canuul
it- assured while the destructive agencies
viiicii iisiroyeu mem are perinnieti to con
linue. We want, in the first plae, a striny-
cti! iiic fur ttm protection 0 fish lu all tin
i .' eHins t.f tiie State. In the next place w
want a speedy restoeking of Uieslretttiis arid
lakes with live iisii, no matter how siual..
