cveryming is qmui ana moving along in
the usual way, except the hogs are nearly
all dying with cholera. The disease was
never before as general and fatal as it is
now. Everybody's hogs have it, and a great
many are dying. It seems to affect hogs of
me same neru in uinerent ways; though
the disease appears to be principally iu the
head and throat, and seldom yields to treat
ment. We understand that Mr. John
Mayes, who has had a good deal experience
witn nogs anu nog-cnoiera, says that coal
oil given internally and externally, will
both prevent and cure the disease. Even if
no more should die, hogs will be very scarce
in this country this year. Farmers have
about threshed all their wheat, anu report
a very good turnout, and they have it garn

sinuating that our country is infested by
Captain Jack's lava-beds, and that we har

recate the conduct of some of our citizens,
we can t see why the whole should be held
responsible for such a very small part; nor

who live iu Klass houses, thiowing stones.
For where is there a good people, wuo have
greater reasons to complain of Captain
Jack's lava-beds, Modocs, aud even Molly

To th- FAitor of the Herald and Mail:
Though you have not heard from the
beud lor sometime, we have not beeu
asleep or in a state of "masterly inactivity;"
we have been so busy harvesting 1 hat we
have not had time for a communication.
We have made a wouderful crop, averaging
aixiut four or five bushels to the acre.
Surely the result of our barvest, if we have
auy wisdom at all, will lead to a change lu
our future plau of farming. Let our motto
be no more cotton, but grain all the time,
aud an abundant oloveriug for the restora
tion of our exhausted soil. The plain cause
ol the failure of our wheat crop is attributa
ble to nothing else but that we havesowii ou
land exhausted by years of cottou culture,
for in every instauce, where clovered land
was sow u iu wheat, there has been a yield
of al least twelve and fifteen bushels per
acre. Let the farmers of Maury County
drop cotton; let them plant only with a
view to improving and fertilizing the soil,
and a better day will dawn upon us. Tb
barren-wasted spots lu all our fields, will
disappear; dissatisfaction at crop gathering
lime will cease; prosperity will return and
I here will be less of this moviug away of
our planters to the lar west. But let ine
give you au item or two of news.
A SKKIOI.S AFFAIR.
i Mr. Will Holsford became very much dis-
satisfied as to the way things were going on,
and went to tho v idow Collins and told her
i about it. She listened very kindly to him.
He then went to old mau Newcomb, her
lather, aud told him about il, who listened
approvingly to Will. He went llieu to Mr.
Nick Akiu and told him about il. Nick is
too kind-hearted to deny auy body in dis

per and gave Will his endorsement. He
went lo the house of the nearest minister
and would have told him about it tut he
was absent. Thinking Esq. Johu Dowell
would do as well, he continued his jouruey

agreed, and went after the widow; but ou
lus way he met the absent minister, forgot
al. nit Esq. John and look the minister ou
with him. Will and tbe widow stood up
solemnly, joined hands aud said their vows.

low gentlemen, 1 most emphatically deny

I ask, that for Hie sake of my friends in

Thomas, I ask you to come again and come

The Finning Fnrly mt the Mouin ol
On last Saturday evening, the 11th iust.,
there was a crowd gathered on or near the
place where the placid waters of Knob
Creek empty into Duck River. The place
is very beautiful and picturesque. On one
side of the river is a very beautiful sand-bar,
which, on oue side, is a grove ol willows,
sycamores, etc., and on the other side is the
waters of old Duck, and at one end is the
waters of Knob creek. Ou the opposite side
of the river is a precipitous bluff, but nut
very high, with cool and refreshing water
gurgling from its side, and above the bluff
is a beautiful grove. Two estimable young
ladies from near the Lock and Dam, and
several from near El m wood , besides those
from off of Knob Creek, together with a
uu ruber of young men, had gathered upon
the above mentioned sand-bar, for the pur
pose of fishing. Of course, there were uo
hooks, lines, etc., such as are used to c-atcli
the finny tribe, but some were fishinr upon
dry land, while others amused themselves
by getting in a canoe, and gently glidin
up and down the river; but as to whether
there were any fish caught, we are not able
to say: but we think from close observation
that there were some very enticing bait
used. After thus amusing themselves for a
short time, they began to cross to the oppo
site side, to refresh themselves by drinkiug
of the limpid water that was gushing out so
oiapnanousiy. mere was a canoe anu
a skiff, in which they crossed. The canoe
wasn't very safe, or at least there were four
young men that didn't think it was, beeausu
mey got into tne canoe and started across,
and it began to vacillate; and as they were
not expert hands with a canoe, as it tilted
to oue side, they would lean to the other;
out in spue or them tne canoe would leau
as they did. and they kept on in this mau
ner until the canoe got over-balanced, and
over it went, turning the unfortunate youug
men into the river, oerore tne gaze oi the
crowd. Well, Mr. Editor and readers, If a
painter had beeu there with his brush, he
could have painted a magnificent scenery

young men then running to the bushes
and the water strearaiugifrom their "sun

painter preseut at the scene, but he was oue
oi ine uniortunate men. iney could nave
ueen tracked for two or three miles, provi
ded they had run that far. While they
were lu the water, some of thetyoung ladies
(their sweethearts, we suppose,) were say
ing, "Save them, save them," but the water
wasn't but waist deeD. aud the vdune men
got out very quick, and took to the Dusiies
in double quick time. ' Alter uaskiug lu
the sunshine for awhile, they came back to
tbecrowd just in time to accompany the
young ladies back home: but they were siill
wet. They got in their buggies aud started
for their homes. The sun was shinlug lu
rays were extremely not, and it is supposed
from the fog that was seen rising from the
buggies, as they were going in full speed
homeward, that it formed into a cloud, aud
that ihe buggies got a good soaking, and
more especially the parts of the buggies that
were made for the accommodation of their
riders, in the way of them being Beated. It
was bad, very bad indeed, ior ine uuioriu
nate voune men. and we sympathize with
them in their wet condition, and would say
to them, to be more careful, aud learn to
keen a canoe balance before you get into
one again in the presence of ladies. Well,
my good boys, I hope you are dry in this
time, and that you may enjoy the next fish
ing party betterthan this oue, and that, too,
wiiuout getting wei. insi r- tss.
