Maury thinks she Is the host county in the
State, and yet her own people are ignorant
of the topography of the county. How
many people know the district line? J. he
value of the map is in calculable its neces

His not our intention to take any part

In regard to the merits of Gen. Whitthorne
or Judge Nixon as candidates lor Governor.
We only desire in reply to the Waverly
Journal to say that the name of Gen. Whit
thorne was brought forward as a candidate
for Governor by the Brownsville Democrat
and not the Hci-Ujw, and It was done by no
inspiration from Columbia or elsewhere,
but because of his great ability and fitness,
and because we knew that he more than
any other man, is the choice of Ui Demo
cracy from Carter to Shelby. The ,fjurutil,
or its correspondent, falls into auother error.
It says the Camden Banner is the only pa
per In West Tennessee which has declared
lor Gen. Whitthorne. Iet us see. The
Brownsville Democrat, the Trenton Mirror,
the Dresden Dt-nvji-ral and the Camden Ban
ner have all indorsed the suggestion of his
candidacy and declared him their prefer
ence. But not only this, he is the first or
second choice of every Democratic newspa
per of West Tennessee, as lie is ot 1 ne vast

thing so ludicrous In an up-right man's

vance of his spirit, and the remainde. of
his body indorsing the laws of gravitation,
that the majority of this party would have
laughed at these amateur acrobats, though
the heavens hod fallen and the angels wept
snow water. Had It not have been for the
extreme pluck of the driver, aud our friend
R. K. P. aolding ou to a bag of "food" that
had fallen out of the wulmididle, there
would have been a good deal -of damage
done. Except thatxhe horse suffered from
an aberration of intellect, and one of the
parly got his left ear pulled down, every
thing passed serene. The roads through
these barrens were enlivened by many
pleasaut sights and sounds. More than an
ordinary number ol birds, of. different spe
cies, fill the forest with music, and their
brilliant plumage contrasted pleasingly
with myriads of flowers that strew the hill
sides and valleys. The splendor of -the red,
pink and white honeysuckle, with their
rich and heavy fragrance, cannot be imag

Nothing can surpass the variety and beauty
of tbe wild flowers of these barrens, even in
the most ornate gardens of oriental lands.
We arrived at "Pine Bluff" before sundown,
and pitched our tent near the rippling, mur

and graceful yellow pine. Masses of wild
flowers sweep down to the water's etli;e all
around, whose wealth ol bloom is surpass

rock stands fifty feet high, we visited iu
By going around some distance, we climbed

our back upon his majesty, and walked
back to camp, when we heard Hint, remark
with au expression like Jupiter, ou his
beaming face, "Tom, isn't it about time to
take a ?" Then a youthtul glowrippled
over the wrinkles of Tom's face, as he cast
a corner of his eye at ourmutual friend, and
smiled. After eating a hearty supper, we
sat and lounged, smoked our pipes aud fill
ed the hours with fishing and buntiug sto

In early pioneer times, when Iemuel
Prewett, Esq., selected a location for his
residence, ou the place so long occupied by
Col. Browu.he built neararery bold stream,
flowing from an extensive cavern, since
known as Cave Spring. Sometime after his
settlement there, and when the caue was
still very abundant all over those fine lauds,
he was visited by a distant relative, named

rather too- large for a boy Je was of a de

As this extensive cavern had then never
been explored, he proposed one Suuday, to
quite a number of boys, both white and
black, that they should go in and see what
beauties it contained. A portion of them,
particularly the darkies, expressed great
timidity in going in so far, as to get beyond
day-ilght. Joe assured them there was uo
danger, that he had been in several; that
there were so many beautiful formations,
where the darkness was perpetual, and so
mauy curiosities they never could see above
the ground; besides, he would go before, and
they could safely follow. So allbecame anx
ioua to see the great wonders under the
ground. They procured an abundance of
torches, and candles, and began their explo
rations. For all there is so bold a stream flowing
from the cave sti'J. it was so wide, there was

The paragraph above, from eTie pen of W.
I. WestbrooJt, of the Brownsville Bee, con
tains the most astonishingly impudent
statement I remember ever to have seen
from the average country editor.
It is not the sweeping and ail-embracing
nature of the language it contains which
constitutes its astonishing impudeuce, for
the reckless use of descriptive terms, is a
privilege granted by a kind dispensation
of Providence to all writers who are defi
cient in natural sense and useful informa
tion. Such writers as this are hardly to be
held responsible for the adjectives which
they use. They may be considered as hav
ing a long list prepared and always on
nana, from which they select mecnanicaily
while writing; and whether the thing de
scribed be true, beautiful and sublime, or
"outrageous, dastardly and cowardly," de
pends upon wnat part 01 tne list inese iuuii-
lerent scribblers have reached at the time of
Moreover, it is not amazing mat mis man
should be ignorant of the details of the
Thomason case; for ignorance is the chronic
condition of many men. There need be no
doubt that a casual perusal of bis weekly
editorials ( ! ) God save the mark would
reveal his prolound ignorance of most
But tne astonishing leature is nis utter
contempt for the facts, united with a cer
tain reckless impudence of assertion, which,
I venture to say, has rarely been equalled
in Tennessee journalism.
w nat was me mental conaition 01 mis
writer when he wrote the lines above ?
It was not a condition of total ignorance.
This is almost self-evident. He is an editor.
He sits upon the tripod. He receives the
weeklies of every coHnty paper in the State.
It is true he may be stupid aud conceited;
aud it is painfully true that conceit and
stupidity are proverbially slow in absorb
ing knowledge. Still, it Is a fact, that, un
der these favorable circumstances, the dull
est man, even though lie were conceited and

would, in the long run of years and iu the
eternal fitness of things, sooner or later,

And yet what does he say In the teeth of
Bear in mind that he lives handreds of

Not Gen. Bragg made so famous iu Mexi
co, and the late civil wars, nor I'ragadocio,
or the game of Bragg, nor n Tellow tiiat
Brags, but it is the Columbia Bragg, a good
old lailhful servant to the manor born.
Bragg was born iu his own native land,
sometime In the christian era, suy about the
year u2, or the year the stars fell, Bragg
fell at the same time, and has
been falling ever since. Brugg sprang
from au illustrious son of Cen
tral Africa, near the regions of Cue equator,
on Lake Victoria Nj'au.a, who was many
years an absolute monarch of his domin
ions, and followed the ancient custom of
African Kings to make sacrifices of his vic
tims on State occasions. The subject of our
sketch was heir-apparent to the throne, but
was unfortunately Kidnapped by some in
famous slaver and brought to tin? shores of
the "New World," but has steadily followed
the custom of his sire, not by making sacri
fices of human being, but by killing snakes.
Brsgg is the greatest snake-klHer, to-Uy,
lu Columbia, Tennessee. On the morning
of the I th or May, Anno Domini, 1ST,
between tiie unlawrul small hours or li
and 6, our hero killed some 1 large snakes,
and In consequence ot the terrible massacre,
the neighbors became alarmed, especially a
large portly gentleman who has passed
the meridian days or life, and hates to be
disturbed iu his little rest, and has, since
-be feat preached up a crusade against
Bragg.like Peter the Hermit, in the streets
or Columbia; and it Is thought by some that
Bragg's name will be sent Fn 0:1, an oyster

long inaction he has grown slick and
fat. He is not a Teuuesseean by birth, but
is much a Tenuessean as if he were iu his
own native land. Bragg has no regular vo
cation, but is a Factotum, floats on the sur
face of Die occasion, and lives on the sub
limity of luck. Bragg is afflicted in a dire
degree with luipecunlosity, and never hesi
tates in meeting a friend to ask a small do
nation. He never hesitates to take a drink,
and has been known to take several kni-jht-eups
on the streets or Columbia. Bragg is a
Mahometan In the faith, and believes
w hen he has shuttled his mortal coil, will
kiss Caaba in the Temple of Mecca,where he
expects soon to go on a pilgrimage. Bragg
is cruel, but yet, he is merciful lie always
kills his victims ou the first stroke.

ol the Legion of Honor over such men as
Sir Samuel Baker, Capt. Speke and M.
Linuant. Mator Albert Akers, who was a
delegate from Tennessee to the Geographic

and distinguished services there the present
Tennessee Legislature gave him a formal
vote of thanks, (see acts ot Tennessee, 1K77
f age 2-"Ki), made tbe acquaintance of Col.

since. He received the louowing letter
from the Pashaw:
Cairo, Egypt, April, 1877.
Your very welcome letter of the 20th nil.,
was received yesterday, and I need not tell
you how nruch pleasure it gave me. Life
here tends to freeze the genial current-of
one's soul surrounded by envy, malice and
all unch-aritableuess, from which the Ever

The audience whiUi assembled at the
Methodist Church on last Friday night to
bear I Im leet ore of Rev. Mr. Oslrauder on
"Scenes in the Orient," was a very large oue
for Columbia, considering her wuut of apt
preclatiou of lectures. The lecture was a
most interesting one. and Invaluable to Bi
ble readers. Many obscure aud Important
passages la the bible were explained, anu
fiiint finnresslonsof ideas were made Indel
ihie. The lectu'er has with him costumes
representing the different characters in the
East, the Publican, the Pharisee, the Soiibe,
iim Mben.'ienl. the Arab, the Mohammedan.
the Servant, and others, and he selects pers
sons Ui dress iu these different costumes aud
represent t tie cliara.-ters.Here he Iiad2ti young
persons, 12 young men aud 1 1 young ladies
and 2 children, and in the bright and
strange cnstunies exhibited the mourning
scene, the mourning procession with Its
kind mourners and their various ways of
mourning, tiiediuins, the call to prayers,
aud mauy other bible scenes of Interest.
Our best young ladies and gentlemen kind
ly consented to assist in 1110 exercises, ana
performed ttieir parts finely, as interest
ing and Instructive as tbe lecture was. The
Institute exercises were not less so. Mr.
Ostrander is a thorough Sunday-school
worker, familiar with tiie best methods of
instiuclion, and suggested ideas to our Suns
dav-school people, aud Imparted a new seal
to them that will result In lasting benefit to
tbe schools of Columbia. liis hardest and
most efficient wo' li was done in this insti
tute, the sessions being held Thursday night,
Friday and Saturday morning and after
noon, himself lo conduct the entire exer
cises, our community seemed to not un
derstand the nature of these meetings, and
thut all persons were invited to attend, and
but lew were present; but all of these speaks
in the highest terms of Mr. Ostrander .and
his good work. Columbia has not been ac
customed to meetings of tills kind, and we
hope this is but thu initial step and that we
shall again before long, see Mr. Ostrander
and other bible instructors among us.

Gone! It rings, like a toll,
On my desolate soul;
And must ring forever;
For now thou canst not be,
What I fain would have the,
My own, never.
Still I love thee, love thee
And my God pity me !
My love is not ol earth:
Sister mine will thou be,
Brother as I'll to thee,
More than of birth t
Oh f this love how It rolls
In sad sounds, like the toll
Of bells we may not Hill I
Ringing out Us sad refrain,
Like Autumn winJ and rain,
Of damp aud chill !
Like Autumn wind and rain !
Ah! you've ne'er felt the palu,
They bring with hollow sound,
As fall the leaves, once green
And fresh 'neath dewy sheen,
Dead, to the gronud.
No! no! you cannot know
This solemn dirge of woe
of Spring and Autumn lot,
When flowers fade awny.
As colder grows the di.y,
Aud kills the frost.
Thy heart hath still its sprih;',
Thy hope lis buoyant wluu.
To cleave unclouded sUies;
Say, hast thou loved as yet
Love that can ne'er lorgel,
A ud never dies ?
But when thou dost thou'lt kuo.v
What great Joy Is, or woe
Oh may the Joy lie thine I
If not then think ol mi,
Of him who must love thee,
And for all lime.
Gone, gone, soon I shall bu
Gone far away from thee,

A likeness, I'll not name,

On last Friilay night tticnolilu Lodge Good
Templars, which is comixmcd of h-niio of the
very best men and women of our county
met at Concord church, aud had a public
lust ilalltlon or their offices. Too much can
not be said in praise or this Lodtje. As they
are the oldest lodge, 1 huve done as much
or more tor the Temperance cm u.e, than
any other Lodge In the count y. That grand
old hero of Temperance, Levi King was In
stalled as Worthy Chief Templar. Four
years ago, this Lodge was organized with l i
charter members, and they have sloa llly
progressed and progressed reaching out to
every ...reciion auu uoing noo'l to fallen
humanity. At that time Levi was then fol
lowing the way ol the transgressor, sye. had
seen and foil the "great, curse" iu all ef lis
hideout delormlty. To-dny he Is a christian
gentleman, standing not only liiuh in hU
church as a good Christ inn gentleman, but
standing high in the estimation of his fel
low men, ana to-day ranks among the very
best cltixens of our county. 1 mention Levi
because ue is one 01 our leading clll.eus, as
a brilliant, bright and beautiful example.'
or the excellences of the order of Good Tem

could be cited to, as noble examples wh j
have been rescued lrom the laws of ileulb

from their connection with Good 'icmplam.
Can 1 say more? yes! could I get an express
