The city fathers of Nashville have pass-
eu a law prohibiting the growing
ot the Allan thus tree in that city, which
is a good law, and we hope our city fathers
win uo iiKewise, oecause it is pronouncea
by competent doctors as being a very un
healthy tree, and the progress it Is making
requires suc.i steps to be taken. We are in
formed that in some places in this county
it has even taken lands, and the farmers
could not stop its rapid growth. Such is the
case in ona place on Cathey's Creek. A
stitch in time saves nine.
We were nnable to attend the closing

BIT, PLEASANT ITEMS.
We believe that C. A. 8., of Napier Fur
nace, Is a gentleman of unlmpeached, and
unimpeachable, integrity. We know he
is regarded by his friends, re!atives,cousius,
uncles, nephews, and acquaintances, as a
man of honor. Were we put under oath by
a competent tribunal, at .Newburg, and
questioned as to onr taith. in C. A. S.. we
should respond that we had unbounded
faith: that we IvnlievAH in him. And wonlrt
Elace implicit confidence In anything that

It is true that be may be mistaken as to a

in his error. As an instance of this he seems
to be under the imnression that we think
Eewis county responsible for the acts of a
iew out-iaws, wnose Bruiai ignorance is to
be regretted. We can assure C. A. S. tliat
we did not intend to reflect on the people of
Lewis county for outrages perpetrated by a
few cut throats. We merely wish to call the
attention of the court to this case, and oth
ers of its character, that are of too frequent
occurrence, not only in that county, but
other portions of our beautiful country. We
simply perform what we believe to be a
public duty, in calling attention to some
thing in which we have no interest than
which is common to all.

Hog cholera seems to have broken out

was perfectly splendid, and the recitations
were well selected and showed a thorough

little children repeated such lengthy pieces
with so much ease and composure, it is
very evident that the Superintendent and
his school have not been spending their
time at Sunday-school without a purpose,
and in vain, we would like to make spec,

Rev. W. M. Robison assisted Dr. Mailov
at the anniversary meeting, preaching sev
eral very ame anu inu resting sermons.
His sermon on Sunday at 11, a. m., ou the
toiichlngly, tender aud memorable words
oi our saviour, "This do in remembrance
of me," was admirably adapted to a sacra
mental occasion and beautifully enforced
by apt illustrations and forcible arguments.
This lauguago was .used by Christ, to his
disciples, the night before he was betrayed,
just oeiore uis ueam. aia tne preacher,
"with what love and affection, we cherish
the memory of our departed friends, with
what loudness we cling to any little memo
rial left to us by them. Whut price could
purcnase a ring, leit to you, uy a (tying
iriena or relative, wiin me request, .Keep
mis to, rememoer rue 7 suhii we more
lightly esteem the dying reuuest of the
blessed Saviour? Some are kept away from
tue communion tauie, oy a ieeiing ot un
worthiness, and a fear that they may thus
'eat and drink 'damnation' to themselves'
For the encouragement of such, let it be un
derstood that they who receive this eucha
ristic feast in remembrance of God's love to
them In sending his Sou iuto the world,
aud In tender recollection of the Saviour's
dying request, 'Ihis do in reinembrauce
of me,' can neither biiug damuation (or
condemnation) upon tnemseives by so do
ing, nor eat, nor drink unworthily." A
pleasing sight to the church, and to angels
too, Is to see a youthful couple, who have
recently plighted their faith to each other,
Kneeling togeiner at tne sacramental uoaru,
thus publicly, in the early days of wedded
love, saying to the world, "Wo are not
ashamed of our christian piofessiou." All
honor to a young laxly, or a young gentle
man, who can arise from the circle of irre
ligious friends, and thus avouch to them,
their fidelity to Christ.
Dr. J. M. Wright, the pastor of thelMetho

during the protracted meeting, to conduct

James Dobbins' sulky ride, is like one ta

with a top to it. The young man took a
seat in it as it stood with the shafts resting
ou the fence, as he leaned back, it went
over ami broke the top. He called Mr.

satisfy him for the damages. He replied,
that five dollars perhaps would cover the
expense. Upon handing Reed the money,
he replied, "that is little enough, but ;t is

the meeting In an eloqunt speech on tem
perance. Brother Bullock has the gift of
making his speeches understood by the
gifted or the humble, and his illustrations
aud anecdotes ou the subject of intemper
ance were listened to with the closest atten
tion. After another song. Rev. James G. Voor
hies spoke for thirty-five or forty minutes.
He is au earnest advocate of temperance
and religion. Brother Voorhies don t think
that a man can be truly converted and
drink whisky. Brother Voorhies Is right
about that. After another song, Brother
Watson, the minister lu charge, and the
Worthy Master of the Fountain, proceeded
to collect a fund to build a new Fountain
hall with a church nelow: and as the music
struck up a lively tuue the money shower

church and temperance hall, and school
house. After which, the speakers and the
other white people present, were invited to
dinner aud waited on until they were fully
served, while the members of the Order
stood around them aud the music played.
Dinner being over, there were some nice
short speeches from Henry Watson, Simon
Dunlap and Louis Watson members of the
Order. They told how whisky had done
them; how poor and miserable they were
when they drank It; how happy they were
now: how thev loved the Order, and how
grateful they felt to the men that had help
ed them to this great blessing. After which,

took awav the seed therefrom, and planted
aud replanted them until he founded the
present cotton culture of Egypt. W ell, it
appears a Copt has now made a 'new depar
ture' of a similar kind. The results already
obtained from the new plant are most ext ra
ordinary. It compares with the old as fol
lows: An ardeb (270) pounds) of ordinary
cotton seeds sows on an average eignt leu
dans (acres) aud produces four cautars ilmi
Hts.) of cotton in seea mat is to say tne cot
ton with the seed inside It, as it comes out
of the cotton nod. Taking this yield as the
average, every ardeb planted produces 32
can tars of ginned cotton and about ii ardebs
of seed. An ardeb of seed of the new species
sows, like the other, eignt leuuans; nut its
yield is more than treble, anu nas even
been stated at five fold. But my most trust
worthy informant "only gives ten can tars
per feddan, which, I may add, Is the amount
taken bv one of the leading firms as the
basis of their calculations as to the effect of
the new plant. They add that it is difficult
to sav exactly what would be the ordinary
yield", as all the returns hitherto are the re
sult of exceptional culture on a small scale.
Ou this calculation of ten cautars, each ar
deb of seed would produce 80 cautars of cot
ton lu seed that is to say, over uoubie the
amount produced bv ordinary seed. At
present prices each ardeb would return
about 210 in seed cotton together, instead
of sUSHi, as it does now. The new cotton, 1 am
assured on the best authority. Is of good ap
pearance, commercially speaking, aud quite
equal In quality to ordinary Egyptian cot
ton. The plant grows in a different manner
to the ordinary cotton plant. It grows to
about the height of ten feet, has a straight,
vertical stem, without branches, with very
few leaves, and is thickly studded with
pods. Seventy are said to have been gath
ered from the first plant discovered. Theor
dinary cotton is louud ou a shrub, some
four to five feet high, with spreading
branches. Nearly a yard must be left for
air, light and growing room between each
shrub, whereas the new plant, from the ab
sence of branches, requires ouly half the
space. This fact Is of material importance,
with a view to its capabilities of production
in a given space. It is called here Bamia
cotton, from the resemblance of the plant
to a vegetable ol that name, and the Arabs
maintain that it Is the result of a cross be
tween the two shrubs. But others say it
has been brought from the Soudan, or Equa
torial Africa. Nothing, however, is posi
tively known. The history of its discovery
Is curious. A Copt, living in the upper part
of the Delta, at a place called Berket el Sab,
("Well of the lion,'' a station on the Cairo
railway,) in the province of Menouf, noticed
in the autumn of 173 a plant in a cotton
field wholly different from the rest, lie
collected the pods, separated the seed, and
planted it in secret in an Isolated plat of
ground. For three years he has carried ou
the cultivation, and now there are said to
be from thrie to four hundred ardebs in the
country, and the seed is sold iu public mar
ket. 1 am told that as high as Hit and even
CJU per ardeb is paid, Instead of 1, All has
been bought up, aud the supply Is exhaust
ed. Supposing that all these wonderful
facts are true, aud I have them from good
authority, a small revolution iu our pros
pects is at baud. If, as is stated, there'are J0
ardebs of seed ready for sowing this March,
aud it multiplies itself by ltd, as abovestated,
we shall have for the following crop a:xul
24,000 ardebs, and for March, 1S7II, there will
be enough to sow the cotton country ten
times over, as there are only 700,000 feddans
lu the whole of Egypt, which are fit for cot
ton culture. Going one step further, and
supposing that the new plant supplants the
old, we should have a crop of 7,ooo,uoo cau
tars of cotton, and 6,ono,ono ardebs of seed,
while the largest crop ever known hitherto
was produced last year, and only reached
three millions cot ton and two and a quar
ter of seed. To put the comparison In the
mouey form we should have 21,000,000 in
stead of tO.OtlO.OVU." Rural tiuii.
