Without some comforts. Now, this class

of paying as.iusladebt as auy they ever
owed, and are the means ot hluderiug oth

As it has beeu sometime since your corre
spondent has been permitted tu give you
any items from, this place, j thought J would
give yon so uie idea of what is going on Jn
The farmers are very busy gathering corn,
picking off peanuts, sowing wheat, picking
out cotton, and hauling It to S. B. Orabaiu
4 Sun's factory, on Fluey IUver, aboul l i
in lies from this plane, whilst others are very
busy In getting up railroad stork, and others
are surveying out tbe railroad from Bon
Aqua Station, by the way of Bon Anna
springs, Pinewood Factory, and turongh the
great iron ore regions to Centrevllle, and
there are others making preparation to build
an iron bridge across 1 men Itiver, at Centre
vllle, at what is called the "Nigger Ford."
With all this, It seems as If we were climb
ing the bill o;' pio.perily. While I was
thinking all tills over, K. A. Dean, bherlir,
dashed iu tq our little village, and captured
wagons, mules, dry goods, shoe tools, tin
buckets, aud such like, to satisfy taxes, as
the time is out. aud they must be coilectea.

f so, there la no necessity tor a formal in
troduction. It Is a city of churches and !
schools, and it is said has furnished some -of
the best editors iu tbe i ate.
It was tho home of Henry F'axon, travel-,
er, ell tor and poet, whose iiarre, and lam
will lie perpduaid iu "J'he Beautiful.
Biiotr," a poem not surpa.ssed by even the
J take School poets. Tbe lamily Is Mill n p
reseuted here in the person ot .Mr. John
Faxon .the well-known corropoudeul ol tbe
tV'oc r-ilimrimi. Hons. John F. House and
Jas. 10. Baey are native citi.us ol Clarks
viile. Col. house won a national reputa
tion by his speech uon tbe action of the Re
turning Board. For Impassioned eloquence
heis rarely eiiualietl.
We arrived loo late to witness tbo un
veiling of the Blount Monument, au event
which attracted the larg-jsl crowd ever as
sembled here lu time of peace. While a
perpetuity of tbe fhy.-i-.itl lorm cannot be
desirable when Death has set ids siguei,
notbiug is more commendable than thedc- ,
sire to keep alive tbe riren which dist in
guished our illustrious dead. Memorial
stone seems the fittest form that gratitude
can choose to show its appreciation ol t In
service ot statesmen. A sight of it will ,
awaken Ihe love oi ancestry. It makes n
mute but mighty appeal to all that is noble
and heroic. The lOgyptians embalmed Ihe
bodies of their dead, aud for ages their
names and deeds- have been forgotten. Tbe
monument is made oJJ tbe. Iluesl ipialliy
of Knox couuly, F.-st Tennessee, marnle.
The work was executed by Mr. Sam Hodg
son, marble dealer andsculplor, Clarksvilie,
Teun. The ceremonies were inaugurated
by Hon. tiustavus A. Henry, fauilliaiiy
knowu ss "the eagle orator of Tennessee.
Gov. Porter, ex-tiovernor Neil S. Brown
and other distinguished dignitaries were
present, and participated in the solemnities
of ihe occasion.
A protracted meeting is In progress at the
Baptist Church, Bev. Mr. Sears paslor. He
has beeu assisted during the week by Kev.
Mr. Fish, of Kentucky, whose singing lsol
surpassing' sweetness. ll was my privi
lege to hear Mr. Sears Sunday ulghl on the
"4 dm lug ol Christ," It was a most happy
ettorl both in matter aud manner. His rea
sons for not expecting the speedy coming of
Chrlsl were strong, and most loicioiy
presented, tbe principal one being tbat the
physical, mental aud moial adaptation had
not yet reached Ihe measure ol perfection.
This was illustrated by reference to tiie soil,
Improvement hi modes ol travel, methods
of teaching aud progress in science aud cul
ture As yet we are but beginning to learn
tbe upward way. A hundred years hence
tile dawn will be ushering in the day, aud
still tbe years will past be lore meridian
splendor shall burst upon the world, aud
still the Messiah might delay bis coming.
Bong ere that limeour sun shall have set -our
destiny sealed . The 'juesUou with us
should be, not ir'ir.n will be come, but shall ,
be prrjmml to meet . him at his coming.' 1
A very large coogicgation iiad assembled
lowliness the marriage ol Mr. I iaieoce
Smith to Miss Aggie Smith, both ol Clarks
vilie, Tenn. 'i'ne Doctor remarked thai not '.
even tbe preaching of the gospel will at
tract people n the church like the simple
rite of malrimony. Al the conclusion of
the last Kontr the candidates appro .cued
the Hilar; and soon the solemn wonts were,
spoken which made them husband aud
wile. The groom looked gallant and baud
some, the bride handsome aud beaulilul.
I have seldom seen the marriage service,
more tasleluily performed in all its parts.'
The celebianl did bis duty wilh ready
gTace, while tbe young couple seemed ;
eipially at ease, yet fully to realize the'
solemnity ol the scene lu which they were
the chiel actois. May liieir future be as fair
as the present paints il.
It has been a week ol weddiugs, and the'
wedding bells will i lug ngaiu ere this teach

Bev. Mr. Bradshaw, a comparatively
young man, is pastor or the Jtelormed

wealthiest church of that denomination in
tbe Stale. The Homaii alholics have their
