The exercises will commence the Friday
night preceding. It is honed that the friends

on tne stiDject, we are inclined to believe
that the defect in our camp-meetings is lack
of system. We need more method in the

been drinking quite freely, and was very
violent and' abusive. Hunt ordered him to
leave his house, Craig's saloon. He refused,

several shots, three of which took effect, one
piercing the brain. Cooper fired once, with

The Geological Horizon assigned to Co

it remains to determine, by a study of the

was in Droarress. and where the specimens
were abundant in situ, to the summit of the

the specimens were, of course, more or less

No. 1 was described by Mr. S. A. Miller, in

In the Geology of Tennessee, pp. 283200,
Prof. Safford gives a list of the Trenton and

that Mr. Miller may have red escribed one

the best informed students of the Cincin
nati fossils have referred Mr. Ulr leu's species

water-worn specimens. The writer has not
held this view: but the specimens from Mt.
Parnassus seem to confirm it. The Corals
of the Cincinnati Group are so blended, and
"species" are so connected by intermediate
forms, as to make it extremely probable
tbat many or the "species'" are mere varie

Bon Aqua Springs.
We recently bad the pleasure of making a
flying visit to this renowned watering place,
in our sister county Hickman, which coun
ty, by the way, seems to have a monopoly
in this line. We were struuk with the many
and valuable improvements made since our
previous visit by the present enterprising
proprietors, W. B.Russell & J. R. Winburn.
The lofty and beautiful hills are covered
with comfortable aud beautiful cottages.
The hotel is kept up to the standard of a
first-class city hotel, the servants and cooks
being of the first order. Kveryt ling goes ou
like clock-work. Rufe Wilkes, col., of Co
lumbia is one of the largest institutions of
the place, and Is popular with everybody.
It is Impossible to see bow things could run
without Rufe, be is so essential to the com
fort and pleasure of the guests, his argus eyes
watching and seeing everything. About
three hundred persons were present, most
ly from Memphis and Nashville. The ball
room was filled every night with elegant la
dies and gentlemen. There was quite a dis
cussion asto the merits of the waltzers,
Charley Horn, W. J. Whltthorne and Buck
Gantt, Misses Willie Leftwicb, and Lucy
Vance were among tbe most graceful lady
waltzers. We met Attorney-General Skir
fington, of Jackson, who read law hereun
der Col. Geo, Gantt. He is au able lawver,
and a gloriously good fellow. Ltr. J. M. Dri
ver, the able editor of the Waverly Journal,
was there enjoying himself, and making
others bappy. Miss Blanche G., one of the
most charming aud lovely of ladies, was
there. Col. Hicks, Hugh Moore, Major Sel
den and Gen. Harding and his son, John
Harding, formed a group of distingushed
gentlemen and agreeable talkers.
Mr. Russell informed us that it was his in
tention to continue to improve the springs,
until it had no superior in the South. It is
destined to be the greatest summer resort in
Beaver Bam Springs.
To the Editor of the Herald and Mail:
We have at present 117 persons here, all
as Jolly as can be; and there would be as
many more If they could be accomodated.
The Maxwell House (Messrs. Johnson and
Moore proprietors,) the St. Nicholas, (Mrs.
Will Dale proprietress), and the Metropoli
tan (Mrs. James Bingham proprietress), are
all crowded. These hotels are like Uncle
Tommy's Buss, It seems that there is room
for one "Moore." We would. ji.ve you a list
of all the visiters here, but, owing the faot
that the tuaU is. about to be closed, haven't
the time to refer to tbe hotel register.
Among tbe visitors are: Col. Dunnington
and Capt. Geo. W. Campbell. Some new
arrivals from Columbia this evening, but
have not heard the names. We have as
select a crowd as can be found at Long
Branch, Saratoga, Bon Aqua or Primm's,
and in point or sociability wager, ' we cau
turn them ftll down. The water is very fine
and the atmosphere pure and bracing, in
fact, it is so regenerating that the eldest
gentleman on the ground Is the rival of
Seth Warfleld (who, by-the-way, is one of
the nicest ol Maury boys and a practised
cllmestell in climbing slick ioles for wild
flowers. In fact, the old gentleman car
ried off the ferns, etc.
Will try and furnish you with a full list
by next mail. The Hekai.ii la always a

very raueH pleased with the place and ev
