bleeding very profusely from a lick ou the

Will exhibit at Columbia, on Monday, the
23rd day of April.
In speaking of this Great Show the Mobile
negisier says: "The old saying that -ail
' shows are alike' has no application in the
case of the Circus and Menagerie under tu
management of W. V. Cole. Their exhibi
tion had been well heralded In advance, so
that people attending at Mobile expected to
see something of real merit. They were not
disapjiointed. From the time when the
grand procession commenced to move
through tlie streets until the last perform
ance closed at night the city w.-is crowded
with pleased and satisfied people. Travel
ing by rail, aud so avoiding the dust and
soil of the turnpike, all of the wagons, char
iots, trappings and properties looked fresh,
clean and new.
The procession eclipsed anything ever be
fore seen in Mobile. The chariots appear
like mountains of gold, and seen when
burnished by as bright a sun as yesterday,
made a strikingly beautiful appearance.
Wonderfully artistlo work was done in
their formation. Uuilding and sculpture
are alike marvels of beauty. Tho latter
comprises models of men and beasts. Then
there were vehicles shaied like the fabled
dragon; chariots, composed of vast piles of
carved animals, all resplcudcut with golden
gildings; there were full companies of men-at-arms
clad in coats of mall, heralds with
banners, and a hundred things of interest.
The show inside the lent was fully crinal
to the street parade. Commencing with a
grand march oi all the artists, elephants
and knights, it continued to tho close wun
an unending succession of novelties.
The animals of Mr. Cole are unusually
fine specimens, large, healthy and with no
trace of the half-domesticated appearance
that so much detracts (rom tho interest of
many familiar exhibitions. Among iheiu
are a splendid living Alaska fur ica ltou.
the only one that has ever been exhibited
In this city. There are a drove of Bractrian
camels, a herd ot Egyptian dromedaries,
baby camels, baby monkeys, baby ele
phants, baby lions, etc. It was no sham,
no humbug. Whatever the bill promised
was fulfilled. The man or woman that at
tend the Great New York and New Orleans
Circus will get value received.

Now, by the little god of love.
In maiden's hearts who rears his throne,
Did e'er so sweet an influence prove
Source of such plague as to my own ?
Two charming girls 1 know, both fair.
And both so tender, fond and true,
That, by tho Joys of love, I swear,
"1 cannot choose between the two!"
There's Mary, beauteous as tbciovis,
And Anna, lovely as tne Graces ;
Both kind and sweet as turtle doves.
Both angel forms with seraph faces,
In which, as in a mirror beaming,
Their characters and tempers show ;
So lovely each, vet different seeming.

While Anna's is a glossy jet.

Billie Sowell, as clever a man as ever
lived, is the owner of a fish-trap which is
located on the east bank of Duck River, op
posite his fathers mill. He caught last
Monday in said trapse; pounds of nsh, which
he issued out to his neighbors free of charge.
Billie says that if the wise legislators who
voted against fish-traps will send him their
auuress, ne win nave snipped to them by
express a "square mess." He informed us
that his father owns the land on both sides
or the river where the trap stands; and we
think that a man who gives away fteh has a
right to "run a trap" against all such "un
constitutionalities1' as the present fish-law.

Then Anna's melting eyes are black,
While Marv's laughing eve are blue :
And thus so equal their attack, -"1
cannot choose between the two !"
Did either of them I not know,
The other I would gladly take;
Would either of them let me go,
Hor for the other I'd forsake.
To give up either I'm so loth, .
In truth I know not what to do ;
Faith, I'd turn Turk to have them both,
Nor need thus "choose betweeu tlie two !"

All About Texan,
To the Editor of the Herald and Mail:
Since ray return home almost every one
asks, " Well, how did you like Texas?'
I would like to answer this question ac
cording to my honest impressions, aud to
the satisfaction ol auy oue aud every one,
who may entertain an idea of emigrating to
tiiat State. I will slate iu the first place,
that every business is overdone, except far
ming. Texas is a good country, and as a
laruiing country, it is the finest in the South
or West, aud equal to auy on the habitable
globe. Texas, as a State, does not waut,auy
more la wyers, doctors, preachers, mechan
ics, printers, oilice-seekers, clerks, book
keepers, barbers, school teachers, soldiers,
insurance agents, pedlers, gamblers, etc., etc.
But all that it does wuut, and xvanl it bad, is
the honest, hard-handed, hard-working fars
uers, who are anxious to till the soil aud lo
make an honest living by the sweat of his
honest brow. If any one wishes to go there
otherwise, my advice is to stay at home.
But if you are williug to go to work on the
farm at good aud laying wages, go to Texas.
1 find farm hands are in demand. A farm
baud will gel twenty dollars a month the
year round, or oue dollar aud fifty cents per
diem during the busy season. Almost ev
erything that you plant will grow in Texas.
The richest lands are the prairie lauds. The
limbered lands are poor, but even then are
rich iu comparison lo some other countries.
It matters but little where you settle in Tex
as, so that you go lo uork. I flud the farm
ing land to yield more per acre of wheat,
cotton, anil corn, ou au average, than the
best farm iu Maury County. One peculiar
ity of that laud is lhat the more it is work
ed, the better it is, and after it lias been
worked year by year, for one hundred years
or more, then 11 is richer and more produc
tive and fertile than when first cultivated.
One great dilliculty is breaking up the soil,
as this waxy prairie black mud will stick to
the plow; aud as no plow has yet been - in
vented that will "scour," they give three
dollars aud tilty cents er acre to have tho
laud broken up. This is the great trouble
with Texas lands; but even then you dis
cover it is easier put in cultivation than
lands anywhere else, for when land are
ouce broke up aud put into cultivation, your
fortune is made forever afterwards: a-s lmg
as it is cultivated it remains loose, auu casi
ly plowed by oue horse, yielding easily a
bale to two hales of cotton per acre, and
twenty lo forty bushels of wheat, and about
leu barrels of coi ii. Aud oat-i are indigenous
t-j the soil, and flourish aluio-a sponta
neously. Peaches do well, but apples do
not get ripe iu this country; it is not caitea
a good fruit country. Vegetables of all do
scriptious does well, snob as lettuce, rad
ishes, peas, snaps, okra, squsrthen. tomatoes,
etc., etc. Next to farming comes the sheep
h Bd cattlo bnstuis. A young man . went to
Texas four years ago. w ithout a t-iugle cent
iu his jxicket. lie was hired as soon as he
lauded to herd sheep ut twenty dollars per
mouth. At the eud or the year ne invested
this '2-W iu bUecp, (120 sheep) at 52 each. At
the eud of tw o y ears his herd had doubled:
I... I ...... i.i-l , .. ...lit ll.lr.lA.1
ii-. iii'ii; , n. i.ii i ii .iui li i. iudu in iui j iu
himself. Al the cud of tho four years he
na-t sold six inousnuu uonar wort" oi woot
aud mutton, and had two thousand good
and thrifty ewes lett. Bui sheep has to be
watched day aud night, and the most suc
cessful sheep raisers are the best herders. A
Mexican can be hired to shear sheep at three
dollars a hundred, and they will shear irom
1)0 to 2ou a day, and so close, as if to seem
that thesheep had beeu saud-papered. Nest
to sheep is the cattle business, mis, at
present, Is the best and most money making
business, as your only trouble is to mark
ami brand iu the spring of the year. Every
man s ruai'K anu Di ana is registered, auu
you may kill and rob a man, and not much
said or done; but just happen, to braud the
wrong calf by mistake, and you will lie hung
sure, i-ouv year old neei cattle sell at irom
eight to twelve dollars. A yoke of broke ox-
ens win sen al 2i to forty dollars each. .Next
to tne came business is tue horse business.
Every person has a herd of horses; but this
business is uot now so profitable as it has
heretofore jeen, good unbroki horses selling
al from seven to htieeu dollars; and even al
this price t aere is big money, as iteost noth
ing to raise a horse. But right here, I will
again say if you want to till thesrjil by the
sweat of your brow, go to Texas. But if you
have an Idea of raising sheep, -cattle, or
horses, or building houses, or practicing
law, or physic, or do auythlug else but
work the land, dou't come, for I say unto
you, you will do no good. AU that Texas
wan ts is good tanners. But if you are wil
ling to pull oil your coat aud roll up your
sioaves and lane noid oi tne plow handles,
go to Texas, for it is certainly the greatest
farming country within the borders of the
United States; but don't "o (.hefo thinking
that you will hud an easy place, for it is not
there. But if you are rich and have plenty
of money aud uolhiug to do, you may have
a good time hunting and fishing. But peo
ple luerc nave 10 wora ior lueir living, anu
there they are the thriftiest and most ener
getic and enterprising men and women I
Lands are worth from 50 cents lo 80O.OO per
acre, according to lmprovemeuts.
Now, my dear reader, I have giveu you
my honest opinion of Texas, It is a pood
country. There is no gainsaying iu that; but
I say to you, if you' go to Texas, vou u ill
hare to work. In conclusion, I w ill say, if
you are willing to work, go to Texas; it you
are not willing to work, slay whore you are.
But go and see lor yourselves.
- I am very respectfully,
Sam K. Waikins.

Tj the Editor of thcUraUl a,ir,M".il:
In the fight which you are waging against
the endorsement of Hayes by Southern
Democrats, 1 consider it my duty to write
you a word or two of hearty encouragement
aud support. Your position is absolutely
correct. It is correct, because it rests upon
high moral ground, conserves the true prin
ciples of government, and accords with the
souudest maxims of political wisdom.
Eudo.-sc Hayes: Why, aud iu tae uame of
Heaven, tor what? When y ou endorse com
mercial paper, you write your name acn-ss
its back; and, henceforth aud forevermore,
with certain technical restrictions, it be
comes your pap:r. 1 challenge auy sane
Demoenit of Columbia or any other part of
Jlii'iiy County, l give me one good reasou
for public endorsement of Hayes; or of
lliiy-v ad-mui-" .rut 1011; or, indeed, of any
thing In I he mrlli, lite, or dying struggles of
mo uepuoncan ii.iviy.
What is Hays s jutlu-rn policy? Has he
auy? Did he cuter upon the duties ofthe
office with ti policy ot any kind whatever?
Was it uotolhcialiy auuouuced, the day af
ter the iuaugurntiou, that the uncertainty
and closcuc of tile contest, had resulted In
U10 Presidents" entering upon the duties of
hLs oflltfe without, a deSueJ. policy of any
kind? Loe-i any oue sappose that he had
briins enough, in tue midst of such an en
vironment, to originate one?
But ho apiKiiiiu-d Key, of Tennessee, Post"

thoughtless.Tonncssee Democrats have been

Information which His Frauduleucy brings
circumstances: Friday last Bell complained
01 ueing sick, anu was permitted to remain
in the work-house. Saturday night he
called to Dick Heavens telling him that he
(Bell) felt a chill coming on him, and that
he would like to have some medicine. Dick
sent alter Dr. Sharber, who came in a few
minutes and administered the medicine.
Sunday morning tbe Doctor called and
f;ave him more medicine. Mouday , morn
ug Bell complained that he was unable to
go out on the pike to work, whereupon he
was permitted to remain in the work-house.
About 11 o'clock, Bell called to the cook, aud
asked to gc down to Billie Sowell's grocery
house, (which is about 100 yards from tbe
work-house), and purchase him a dozen
eggs, which she did. When she uot back.
she went to the wall and called to Bell aud
asked him how he wanted the eggs cooked.
She then looked in, aud discovered a bed
quilt huug up on the inside wall; when she
asked why that quilt was hanging between
her aud him, he replied by saying "that he
was airing the onilt." which looked verv
reasonable. She went back into the kitch
en, cooked the eggs, and brought them out
and called for Bell to tak the eggs through
a crack in the wall; she called to him sever
al times, but he tailed to answer. When
she looked through the crack and saw that
tbe quilt had beeu taken down, she at once
suspicloned that the quilt was a "blind" to
get out. She then ran to the front of the
work-house and gave the alarm, when Bil
lie Sowell and John Haicomb heard her,
and ran ud there. Thev unlocked the door
and found that Bell had made his escape
through the floor by prizing two planks up.
Bell had a chain four feet long culled to his
teg ana tne cuam ran through the plank
wall and locked on the outside. Durlug
his feigning sicknesshad removed the rivet
from the curf around his ankle, and there
being uo one around the work-house build
ing Monday, he had a good opportunity to
make his escape, which he did. Right here
we will state that there are only three
guards employed at the work-house; two
of them, Jim Haynes and John Rieves. day
guards, were at the time Bell made his es
cape, out on the pike, two miles aud half
from the work-house, and John Haicomb,
the night guard, was asleep, where he prop
erly belonged, at that time, he being up ail
the night before; so uo blame can be at
tached to the three guards or to Dick Bea
vens, the Superiuteudeut, he being also
with the hands two miles and a hall from
work-house at the time Bell made his es
cape. Johu Haicomb as soon as he got to
tlie work-house and found that Bell had es
caped, hailed Dr. Sharber, who happened to
be riding by, lor bis horse, which he mount
ed and scoured the woods all around the
work-house, but John niight as well have
been looking for a aeedie iu oue of Col.
Sowell's'liaystacks as for Ball, lor within
three hundred yards south of the work
house there is a cedar thicket as thick aud
solid as the walls that Stonewall Jackson
fought behind during the war, but John
was doing his duty as he always does. Bil
lie Sowell went aud informed Dick Bea
veus of Bell's escape, when lHCk Immedi
ately jumped upon a horse aud rode to Co
lumbia aud informed the police of Bell's es
cape, and also ottered a reward of twenty-
nve dollars lor uis capture. Jim Haynes
ran "loolback" to the iron brid-'eaud uo to
the work-house distance the way he went,
seven miles looking for Bell. Bell before
ieaviug the work-house stele a pair of seven
uouar 0001 s, a razor, pair 01 shoe., black
