ot good was accomplished, and much able
preaching done on this occasion.

their intention of joining the Cumberland

two week, and the success attending his
labors made him teel that his church in
town bad been praying for him. He was
pail ed to learn that his prayer-meeting
was poorly attended durlDg his alxsence at
Klmwood. He always noticed that when
I he church was cold the front seats were
not occupied, and when the church was
zealous tlie front seats were crowded. He
expected to be absent about a month, and
m bis return would begin a protracted
i.iecting, on the first Sabbath in September.

an invocation of the Lord's psesence the
tirst Sunday In September. Alter a beauti
lui hymn, "Nearer, My Ood, to Thee," lead
by llro A. W. Stockell, nud suug by the

In the dance. About 11 o'clock ice-cream
and cakes were handed around, and every
one present enjoyed these refreshments so
much, because they were very elegant.
The young ladles present were very beauti

never saw, on any occasion, so many ladies
who were perfectly beautiful, and it we had
space would notice each one specially. This
party was gotten up by Messrs. Will Car

joyed themselves so much. These young
men deserve much praise and many thanks
for gelling up one of the most pleasant little
parlies of the season; but what would the
party have been without Miss Lou Willie's

crowned herself with glory on this occasion,

Hurricane Camp Mectiug.
The managers of the Whitlaker Camp
ground at Hurricane Switch, have decided
to permit the establishment of a public
camp for the entertainment of visitors, at
which a moderate price will be charged for
They are prompted to this course from the
following, among other considerations:
First. Many persons who would like to
attend this great annual religious festival,
from good aud pure motives, are unwilling
to share tbe hospitalities of the regular
campers, with whom they have little or no
acquaintance, and therefore absent them
selves, when, if Ihey could find accommo
dations on the ground, would be present
aud lend their aid to the services, and there
by, both do and receive good. Second. The
burden of entertaining: large crowds is too
heavy for a small nuinber of campers; aud
whenever the attempt has been made, has
resulted in preventing campers and their
families from enjoying (to any great extent)
the usual means of grace, provided by the
catnp-ground services for their benefit, and
in this way, they became discouraged, aud
at the same time, tho meeting is ollen se
riously damaged by their absence from its
services and the consequent loss of their
moral support and influence. Surely those
who bear the expense of enacting tents.
moving on the grounds and entertaining
their immediate friends, ought to enjoy the
privileges 01 tne services to ine luuie.st ex

ed, where established, have given satisfac
tion from obvious reasons founded on the
above principles. The entire revolution, In

necessitates a change also in the kind and
inanuer of southern hospitality. As ainoug

such occasions win nave sooner or later to
help meet the expenses thereof. Our

There is an evil in the land of vast mag
nitude, in condemnation of which there has
been but very little said, either oral or writ
ten. It has grown until it now pervades to
an alarming extent in every society in the
land. We allude to the evil of partial tali
telling, and to ba understood more fully, we
we will explain: Where there Is a misun-
standing between parties, some will,
through prejudice or other causes, take
sides, and tell only one side of the tale, and
by so doing, suppress part of the whole
truth, when if both sides were impartially
told the impressiona made would have been
quite different. Some are so eager to tell
something that they will proceed with the
rehearsal, when at the same time, they are
aware that they are unacquainted with the
r.,11 .-..'., i .. - i .. .,.-. ........ ...... ..
sons are made to believe a falsehood, wheth
er it is intended or not. We said that this
evil pervades every society in the land, yet,
for even some of the preachers are not fault
less in this respect, as we once heard one
telling a tale to his audience, and at tbe
same time acknowledged publicly that he
did not know ail of the circumstances con
nected with it. We happened to .know all
about the case, and so foreign from the
truths was his statements that we should
not have known what he was talking about
If It had not been for a certain term that be
used in connecting therewith. By attempt
ing a partial rehearsal, he made his audi
ence, believe at last, three falsehoods; when
at the same time he would not directly tell
one u nder any consideration whatever. Thus,
whenever preachers deviate from the path
indicated, by tbe venerable apostle to his
son, Timothy, they are tossed upon the
rugged sea of confusion.
The wheat is all threshed, and we have to
report the worst crop this country has made
ior many years. The entire crop in tbe east
end of the county will hardly average four
bushels per acre. Notwithstanding the
enormous quantity sown, there is hardly

to sow- another crop. One of the fruitful
causes of these failures is a very bad prepa
ration of the land for sowing, yet, tbe last

taiiure is late sowing, ids crop suouiu an

so that there will be no danger of it freezing

of failure is, that the soil is not turned early

In regard to any grammatical errors that

think it rather unkind and even presumpt
ous in any one to criticise a gentleman for
tbe lack of that he does not claim. But
drowning men will catch at straws. But as
Vuxporus has "troken the ice," we will
point out in his article some half dozen of
t.nn most prominent errors committed by
Mr. Yuxporuit,a professor of YanderbiU Uni

nu r seeming presumption when we say.
without the least fear of contradiction, that

with oilcloths, blankets, and willow aud

tiful Nashville ladies and Col. Sowell's no
less beautiful daughter. Miss Penelope Fai
ry, got aboard. The crew was commanded
by Commodore Albert Akers. Miss Sowell
got off at Cedar Bluff, and returned home.
At noon, the pilot, Jake Bennett, discovered
that they were passing the celebrated Tin
Pan Spring, and there they landed and ate
dinner. The water of this spring comes
rushing out beneath a towering bluff, and
is very .cold. Dinner over, the "Penelope"
started down again, and was soon going
rapidly over a shoal. Duck River has a fall
of about a foot a mile, and it is a series of
ponds, tbe fall all being at the shoals. Oh it
is a grand sensation to go over a rapid and
rugged shoal iu a rickety craft, and exert
yourself to keep from going to pieces against
a rock. They pass Wright s shoal, aud are
in sight of Cedar. Bridge, where they beheld
a party of Columbia gentlemen, A. S. Hors
ley, General Fusseil, Geo. C. Taylor, Capt.
Fletch Barnes, and W. J. Whilthorne, on
horseback. The boat halts, a happy greet
ing takes place, and t!ieu Bragg pushes oil
aud down they go, over an old fishstrap
dain, the waves high and the water swilt as
lightning just enough danger to spice it
aud make il Interesting, for you know 'lis
said that terro-, or danger, is the heart of the
sublime. Soon they are out of sight, but
what Is that coming down the river above ?
"As sure as I am alive," said F'letch Barnes,
"It Is Capt. Bob Smith and Alf Horsley.''
And sure enough it was them, in an old
crazy canoe, looKlng terribly one paddling
ami the other throwing out water. They
had a few muscles, which they had picked
out of the river, for scientific purposes. It
seems that they had gone to Sowell's Upper
Mill, aud learned from W. A. Barker, Wll
burn Sowell and Joe Rooks that the gun
boat had started down the Nile, aud was
miles ahead. They baled tbe water out of
an old rotten canoe, daubbed it with blue
mud, aud started ot. as fast as two paddles
and a swift current could carry them. At
the bridge, W. J. Whitthorne took Capt.
Smith's place. The big waves threatened to
engulf them, but on they went, over shoal
after shoal, for several miles. Finally the
gunboat was seen ahead, rounding a point.
Volley after volley was fired off, and shout
after shout rent the air. The canoe was tied
to the boat, and the crsw got aboad. Soon
we discovered Gilliam's Cave, out of which
a tremendous spring came. Whit got into
the canoe and went up into tbe cave, a haz
ardous undertaking, as he had to stoop, A
citizen went up many yards and brought
out a pitcher of cold water. This spring is
almost equal to the one at Huntsville. Ve
then moved the column down and soon
came to the "Swift Shoal," at Cheek's, a
very rapid and long descent. See that nat
ural dam, where the water jumps off a large
rock, a dangerous lean for a boat. The boat
Is half over, and all is breathless expecta
tion. Surely the boat will go under those
immense waves, rushing, seething, and
foaming. The boat creens, and groans, and
labors, and the waters rush all around us,
but we are now safely over, aud we look at
the discomfited waves, angry because they
missed their prey. We stop at Buzzard
Cave, and slase our thirst with gloriously
cold water, bursting out ol the cave and the
rocky crevices. At Long Island, we were
attacked by ttaeTambarl, with bows and ar
rows, but we drove them off with Bragg's
artilery, and drowned many of them, run
ning over anu siuaing tneir ruue canoes
with our gunboat. We moved the column
down, tbe sun shining as he never shone
befoie hot as a T urkish bath, 102 degrees.
Master-man, it was hot! Fletch Barnes
says it was the hottest day he has seen in
thirty years, But of course it is hot uuder
the equator, at the head of the Nile, which
we were descending. We now grew hot as
tire, not a breath or air stirring; and we all
feared sunstroke. Fortunately, old Mosev
Tanner's Cave was at hand, a glorious
spring running out, and we stopped and got
cool. Biagg let the boat get off, and we bad
a bard time gelling it again, as Niagara
Falls ( Wallace s old dam) was just below,
where tbe water rushed through like a cat
aract. Here was shown some splendid gen
eralship, with Scyiia, in the shape of a big
rock, on one side, and Chary bd is, In the
shape of a rock bank, on the other. The
Doai is agrouuu, out oue oi me nanus jumps
out and lifts it off. Now we pass Scylla, oue
foot, Horsley keeping it off, aud now we
surely will be crushed against Charybdis,
but Jake Bennett and the Commodore keep
it off Just one foot. The water here descends
several leet, and Is very deep, bearing us on
at lightning speed. Surely nothing but
splendid seamanship could have carried us
safely over. Now we are golug over the old
dam, the waves running high aud playing
with our huge boat as if it were a plaything.
At Long island we passed Mr. Journey, aud
uow we see Benj. Thomas and John Gilles

I The ridge between Spring Hill and
Thompson Station that divides the waters
of Duck aDd Harpeth, was recognized as
the Indian boundary some years before tbe
country rurther south was abandoned as
Just at the foot of the hill, on tbe north of
tills ridge, at an early day, likely before INMl,
settled Francis Glddens. His house was
near the great tliorourh fare from Nashviil
south. The exact locality is where the mod
em tasteful residence stands, built only t
few years since by Col. Lavender. It is
fronting Thompson's Station, the srreat cen
tral point for shipping wheat, corn, tobacco,
cotton, etc- from the superb country sur
rounding; the amount of money paid out by
mam mercnants is simply immense.
There, for many years in pioneer times,
Mr, Glddens kent a house of entertainment.
The great number of travelers and wagoners
who stopped there, rave it a reputation, and
uiuuuns was Known, not oniy over lennes
see and Kentucky, but all over the south-
ern country, as it was settled. Mr. Glddens
was quite a large man, with a large, broad
foot. The prominent points of his charac
ter were unswerving honesty, indomitable
energy, and bluntness. He lived to an ad
vancea age. nearly hu years, and accuniuia
ted a handsome fortune, raised quite a largo
iamnv: connected bv marriages were sever'
al Bufords. Word, and others.
Some of his decendants are around tbe old
homestead, others in Giles and Maury
while some are scattered over the south
west; but wherever located, they are noted
ior the same honesty of purpose, so promi
nent in the old patriarch. The ad vanco of
civilization has founded off the bluntness
or the old grand-father,
As tbe travelers were bo numerous who
stopped there, many are the tales told
me Diuntness or the old gentleman. The
fact is, when a proper case presented itself,
ne enjoyed taaiug mm uown. Among me
wagoners, one grnmbled at the corn. The
old man asked bim "did be find fault of the
measure." "No. he always eot good meas
ure." Mr. Glddens said. "I could not do less
as an honest man." "But I object to the
price," he said. "As to that, the corn is
mine; I have the right to put ray price
it; you can take it or not. as you like."
A young man had often stopped there, as
he passed with bis wagon. As the old gen
tleman's daughters were lovely girls, he
went home, bought himself aa elegant suit
(which cost a good deal In those days) anil
started back to Mr. Glddens' courting. He
happened down the road and met him; of
course the young man rejoiced to See his ex
pected father-in-law. The old man eyed

ter looking at him, said, "When I see a man
dressed as nicely as you are, with his hair
parted ana smoom, i regard him as being

as a pleasantry, laughed It off, kept h Is seat
for sometime, then went to his room, and
on bis return was crying. The old gentle
man's sympathies ware aroused, and he en
quired very Kindly what was the matter.
The young man continued crying, till the
old man pressed him for the cause of his
crying, jtie answered, i can't help it;
when I lived at my father's, away down in
North Carolina, we had the best of Johnny-
cakes; every lime I think how good they
were, I can't keep from crying. When I
saw your feet, I thought of our good Johnny-cakes."
The next morning, when the
young man asked for his bill, the old gen
tleman said, "You don't owe me a cent, but
it you ever come nere again, I will kill you.'
How handsomely in his way did he ac
knowledge the young man had beat him at
his own game of bluntness.
An Alabamlan knowing Mr. Glddens was
celebrated for his bluntness, met him. shook
hands with him, so glad to see him. The
old man said, "I do not know why you
should parade so on seeing me." Tbe other
said, " ou put me so in mind of my good
father; he had feet like yours; every night
