Joseph N. Walker has been appointed
General Agent for Truett, Sons & Morgan,
proprielois of the Rose bank Nurser3, Nash
ville, Tenu. Mr. Walker Is au energetic, ac
tive agent, and we are glad to know that he
is employed by this "old reliable" institu
tion, which haa more age, notoriety and
wealth than any other nursery south of the
Ohio River. Mr. Walker has authority to
employ under him a large number of good
salesmen, who would like t travel and can
vass away from home. Such as are wil
ling to devote their whole time and stay
away for a considerable perlo 1, will perhaps
be acceptable to him and get good wages.

thorne never was looking better. The older
he gets the handsomer he looks, and the
more the people love him. The other day a
gentleman from Wayne and a gentleman
from Maury met, and the former asked
what Cieu. Whitthorue was going to run for.
"Whatever the people want him for, and
wherever duly calls him. As for me, I am
for him for what he wants, and I expect I
will do like the people did about tien. Jack
son, "idW jttr him ten yearn after he ut
dead." "And so will I," replied the Wayne
man, with greit war mm and sincerity.
This is only an instance of how the people,
high and low, love him. They love him be
cause he first loved them, and shows it in
all he does and says.
Capt. .lames liapny Andrews and his
lovely bride returned Monday evening from
their Noithern bridal trip. We welcnme
him and his to their future home. The Cap
tain is handsome, good-hearted, and full of
sense, and a fine business m in. His success
in the past assures it for the future to a far
urenter extent, now I hat. he has a noble aim
iu life. The bride will find outside of the
amiable and iovely family of which she lias
become a part, friends as true and loving
and appreciative as iu herown loved Frank
lin. This couple have loved long, and
know each other well, and all they have to
do now is to realize that possession of one's
heart's desire Is sublimer bliss than the ex
citement attending the chase.

Among the number ot dances that we
have attended this winter, was one at Mr.
Benton Alexander's, giveu to Miss Iva Wil
liams, of Williamson county. She is a tall,
handsome and intelligent young lady, ana
ber conversation is very vivacious.
There is a certain young man of Double
Branches, who has been attending the Cul
leoka Institute. His slay was some two or
three months, during which time, he, of
couse, formed the acquaintance of some
young ladies in auj near cuiieoka; one of

very few days, before be received a letter
from a certain young lady, who lives near
Cuiieoka, and judging from its size it must
have been a billetleaux. Ab, how he must

six or eight pages. Imagine, Mr. Editor,
will you, the pleasant smiles as they played
over liis face while reading the letter. We
are glao to say, that alter some three or four
days of hard writing, toe letter was answer
ed, directed aud started with a three cents
stamp ou its back, to Cuiieoka. It reached
cuiieoka in uue time, and wnen tne young
lady called for it, she was amazed, when the
postmaster informed her that she had to
pay a nickel before she could get the letter,
we think, contained twelve or fifteen pages
of good size paper. Surely this Is business.

The night was dark not even a star shone
to give its light, but dark, lowering clouds
shut the little spark liug orbs of night from
our view. Not a sound was heard without,
but tbe whispering of the leaves, and tbe
sighing, of tlie wind. Soon two figures
made their appearance, and were coming
in a rapid way towards tbe house, and as
they naared the bouse, they turned as 'If to

We noticed an art icleln tbe Journal, of the
the 20th inst., which was headed, 'How to
Keep tieese out of Your Wheat."' Mr. " (i,"
who was the author of the piece, stated that
"Parson II," of Knob Creek, has a wheat
field, bis two neighbors, L. B. F. and Ell S
had large flocks of geese, aud they were ma
king sad havoc ot the "Parson's- wheat, un
til lie procured an old sow, which would
make way witn tbe geese whenever she got
to them, and turned ber In "to graze with
the geese," and tney began to diminish In
number so fast, that tbe neighbors oonolu
ded to taketbetn out; and the "pat son" then
penned ids old sow for several davs without
feeding ber; and Mr. Ci.'s insinuations were,
tbat after the neighbors tbougbt all danger
was over they turned their geese lose to go I
the "parson's" wheat. He also stated that
during tbe time the sow was starving in
the pen, that the wheat was full of geese
again, and the "parson" turnsd his hungry
sow in to "graje with the geese," and she
soon-cleaned them up. L. B. F. and Ell S.
are now destitute of geese, ete , whUe the
"parson" has a fat porker to sell. We have
been informed that Mr. "G." published the
above as a joke, and It was told to hirq asa
"joke," a joke it is, and a pretty rough one,
too. M r. (4, may have published it as a joke,
not thinking ot the lnjust'ce it was doing
tbe owners of the geese. Ab the joke's incli
nation is to do Dr. L. B. F. and Mr. Ed 8. au
injustice, we wish to sy to the renders of
the Herald and Mail and Columbia Journal,
that there is not one word of truth in the
whole piece. Tlie sow never did catch a
goose ( uor a gander, either,) in the wheat
field, and t he facts are, tht Dr. L. B. F. and
Mr. Ell S. still have large fiocss of geese, and
tbe old sow is sllll poor, aud wiU remain so,
yes,dle, if she don't get, something to ea un

We wouid suggest to the aut hor of tuis joke
a better way lo "keep geese out ot jour

that is, to beep the g it- s soul and the fences

TO BUNS ZANA.
It elves me, Miss Zana, much pleasure
To conform to my scholar's request,
Though for music, rbyinth and measure,
My talents are none of the best.
Yonr birthday I'll ever remember,
And I fondly recur to the scene,
When the twenty-third day of December
Made you happy and bright, and fifteen.
Of course I am going to advise yon.
Who are reaching that critical age,
When the girls will begin to despise you
And the boys will attempt to engage.
Sixteen Is the age of all others.
When girls think the most about beaux;
When their secrets are kept, from their
And are told to their flattering foes.
When the blind little god of the heathen
F'ills your quiver with merciless darts,
I trust you may never be given
To wounding the fond loving hearts.
How can virtue be happy to see
The distress and desnair of another'
How vile must that vauity be
mat can leva on the pain of a lover!
When the heart of your lover with bliss
Is filled bv tbe promise von fuller
Oh! remember to give htm no kiss
'Tin you meet and espouse at the altar.
For beauty that's ylolding In aught
Must forfeit much love and resoectr
And with danger betrothal is fraught
iis tue rocs, on which hearts have been
De pise not this life and Its duties.
Nor be callous to happiness here;
Neglect not your charms and your beauties,
wi j wm wnaiuu a to io ve ana to cheer.
Be kind to the meanest of creatures,
W hile mercy each feeling refines;
For benevolence softens the features.
And with loveliness charity shines.
Be candid and faithful In all things,
Nor practice a moment's deceit;
Be truthful in great and in smalt tilings,
That your character may be complete.
Form the habit of daily Inspect ion
Of all tnat Is fouud in your mind;
Submit what is there to reflection.
And suppress the Ul thoughts that you
Neyer think that all sin and all error
Are hideous in form, and in mien;
With aspects of fright aud of terror,
Where no charm or no beauty is seen.
Vice has his lawns and his bowers,
With cordials his cup may be tilled;
But tbe serpent lies hid in 1 be flowers.
Where the poison Is sweetly distilled.
As the stranger In tropical climes,
Where some beautiful scene is unbounded
While be listens to nature's sweet chimes,
is by vipers aud dangers surrounded.
So the youthful are ever astonished
At tbe beauties and pleasures of life,
Until by misfortune admonished
Of the sorrows with which it is rife.
As time aud experience teach you,
Be not grieved, and perplexed, and an
noyed, Thongh the knowledge is certain to reach
That all virtues on earth are alloyed.
True virtues t he coinage of heaven,
Debased for the commerce of eartb;
Too pure to mankind to be given,
Defiled from the moment ol birth.
Bnt why should we look for perfection
Where sin and temptation abound !
Yet the safest, the loudest protection,
" In religion and virtue is fouud.
When you gaze on the works of creation,
W here the haud ot the maker is seen;
And are lost in profound admiration
And contemplate aU that they mean;
When you turn to the bright revelation,
And read ot tne promises there.
And are taught by your spirit's elation
That the soul is eternity's heir;
Then reflection eternity's treasure.
On its happiness endless and pure
And return to this life and its pleasures
With a heart that they can hot allure.
May each virtue illumine yonr face !
May your heart to religion be given !
With a soul full of faith, and of grace.
May they love you on earth and in heaven.

at Newsom's station, antl ran into Nash
ville. 1 had hoped to reach ihe city in time
to hear a sermou, but as 1 reached the West
Eud Church, Rev. Wm. M. Green, the pop
ular pastor, was giving his audience the pe
roration of wiiat 1 was told, a good sermon.
Subject, "Uniformity but not unity." I saw
at his church his worlny matriarch, Mrs.
Mary Green, relic of the late lamented Dr.
A. L. P. Green, her son-in-law, Col. T. D.
Fite, Rev, A. Mizell, antl mauy other nota
oles were worshiping with my noble class
mate.. There Is one good reason why I
have set Rev. W. M. Green down as one ot
my special friends, t. r., in Ins stations he
always knows me, and welcomes me to his
home. At the ciose of Brother Green's ser

lu the bonds of matrimony. In this in
stance, as in those other marriages men
tioned lu this letter, your correspondent
had the honor to officiate. In the aiiernoon
I attended services at tbe Vauderbilt Uni
versity, aud beanl a fine sermon from Dr.
T.J. Diidd, one oflhe Professors of JtlieJVau

the Vauderbilt students, preached at West
To-day, December 81, I dined with Dr. T.

from Dr. Graubery, which M'art fine.

weighty reasons why he should be. First,
he is free from ull prejudices; second, he is

fourth, he is al ways al home, whether at a

now as we could not impose the work upon
him at this advanced age, Dr. Young Is the

Speaking of religious matters, I wish to
answer a paragraph in a recent letter of
your Spring Hill correspondent, and I ro
oogntze iu him a man "worthy of my steel,"
aud for twelve months past I have been In
tensely interested in his letters, but In a
late Dumber of the Hkkalu he entered his
protest against a minister ordinarily call
ing upon a layman to pray the concluding
prayer when a sermon had been delivered
by hini. Alter an experience ol ueai twen
ty years, I feel assured the broUier is wrong.
In tbe first place if a preacher preaches
with thai energy and unction he should, he
needs to rest j usl at t tie close of a sermon ;
second, sotne-worlby i tyiuen feel better by
having led in p.ayer, and might feel irg

finally, if you will show tue i churcu where
no laymen pray, I VrI point you out a

your interesting paper a great success.
