HIT. PLEASANT ITEMS.
On Wednesday night of last week Miss
Lulie C. Begbie, of Franklin, Tenu., an elo
cutionist ol rare ability, read to an audience
of unexceptionable brilliancy at tbe Pres
byterian Church in this place. 1 his young
lady's general bearing is highly refined and
elegant, while her countenance is very ex
pressive ana intellectual, nnu n we nave
toruotten to call her pretty, it is not be
cause we are not an admirer of black eyes,
but because ber hue talent held the admira
tion monopolized. The young lady displays
fine talent as an elocutionist, and may be
also complimented on her selections. All
this applies highly to Miss Begbie, and it is
with assured confidence therefore that we
foresee a high reputation for her in the fu
ture. Prof. R. E. Biuford introduced Miss
Beebie to tbe audience in a neat little
speech that gaveevidence of his ability as
a gentleman aud a scholar of no ordinary
capacity, some oi me selections renaereu
by the young iaay were "creea oi ine rsens, '

which were both beautifully spoken and
charmingly read, and very enjoyable, judg
ing irom the countenances oi me auuieuce.
In rendering some of the most difficult
pieces on the programme, she has con
vinced all who heard ber that she possesses
talent which by proper application and
cultivation, will In uo distant future make
ber a star in the literary woria mat win uo
honor to any State or county. "Creed of
the Bells' is something that is suited to her
voice, showing every good point in her
vocalization, having a good range. Her
rendition of them was by far the best effort
of the evening. At the close of the read
ing we heard on every side the warmest
praise ana nignfcsi coinmenaauous in mis
gifted lady, whose charms and accomplish
ments wouia capture auy auuieuce, uoi.ii hi
home and abroad. We congratulate Miss
Begbie on the high appreciation with
which her eflorts bave been crowned, aud

weather is more pleasaut. she will give us
another opportunity of enjoying the same
happiness, wmcn sne uas aireauy anuiuea

Messrs. Patton, Akin, Davis and Pogue
have been aoing wen mis season with
their Steam Cotton Gin at Hampshire, and
are st 11 at work.
Last Monday week Messrs. Andv and
Sam Akin, Poily Brooks, the Deputy Sher
iif, John Thompson and Mr. Patton and
some others went on a deer hunt to the
barrens in Lewis County. They carried
their hounds with them, and provisions for
tnemseives wim oeaainz: and food for their
stock. They went well equipped for the
chase and anticipated a successful hunt.
Mr. Andrew Akin being oldest and chief
hunter that went from near home, seemed
as eager and active as the youueest. and bis
countenance was in up with bright antici
pations oi roast aeer ana venison ham. At
the close of the week be was
seeu on bis return, by himself looking as
sad and melancholy as if he had lest his
dearest friend. Several were anxious to
learn of bis success in the hunt, and ap
proached and asked what luck? None. We
did not even have tbe luck to see a white
tail, but the worst or it all, he said I have
lost my dogs, and I will bave to go and
hunt them. On Monday, of the following
ween lie was seen coine to IjOuis in searcn
of his dogs. At tills writing we have not
learned of his success in the search lor hia
pups, but trust that he succeeded in getting
and bringing them back, ana in his next
hunt be will have all tbe success In tbe
chase, and come out ot the same with a
name equal to that of Nimrod of old, for he
is a iovial and whole-souled companion in
camp, as elsewhere, and we hope he may
live long to enjoy his lavorite sport.

The old-fashioned bell of tbe fathers was
graphically and vividly portrayed by Elder
Sowell.at Lasea, last Sunday. How men
who profess to be preachers of the gospel of
a meek uud merciful Savior, can feast and
gloat over the mysteries of the wicked in
the world of doom, aud exhaust an Immense
stock of foul adjectives to describe tbe awful
condition there, will ever remain a mystery
to us. That the punishment of the wicked
will be uwful, we will not attempt to deny,
but we are tired of hearing preachers ot
God's good will to man so vividly portray
uiose awiui scenes mat we can nearly smelt
the brimstone. The elder stated in bis ser
mon, that the scriptures taught that the
punishment of the wicked would be eternal.
We are no preachers, and make no big pre
tensions to scripture familiarity, but we
will give tbe elder and all others who be
lieve as he does, two weeks to search the
divine oracles to find the word eternal in
any manner connected with tbe future pun
ishment of the wicked. We, as a christian
people, should rather concern ourselves
about the future rewards of tbe righteous,
and leave the chastisement of the wicked to
God himself. Our own observation and
good sense teaches us mat it is not the fear
of punishment, but the hops ot reward mat
maaea me oesi servants.

We publish Mr. 8. L. Graham's letter to
the editor of the Franklin Review and Jour
nal, as an act of justice to Mr. Graham. The
Review contends that Mr. uranam, ueinga
rich man, or a millionaire, as be is called, Is
able to pay his taxes. We can't see why a
man, whose taxes amount to several thous
and dollars a year, is any more able to pay
than tbe men who have no taxes at all, ex
cept poll taxes, to pay, as Is the case with
a majority 01 tne voters m evtiy uiuui iu
this State. II a man whose taxes amount to
thousands of dollars each year does not
complain, we do not see why those who do
not pay more than five, ten, or twenty dol
lars, should complain. Mr. Graham's inter
ests would be against paying tbe bonds, if
be took ouly a narrow, contracted view 01
me question; but he has seen enough to
know that repudiation will injure him, aud
every other taxpayer in the state ten times
the amount Ol ine taxes necessary to pay
the debt. Mr. Graham, though a rich mau,
has taken the poor people's side iu Ibis con
test. Tbe poor will lie more Injured by re
pudiation In proportion than any others.
Character and reputation are all they have,
and if you take these from them by fixing a
stain upon the State, which fails upon all
her clllsens, mey are tue main auucrcn,

a very little, money to taxpayers who are a

The people are not Interested in repudia
tion in fact, all their interests, as well as
their pride of character, are against it; but
the few who wish to depreciate State bonds
for the benefit of a speculating ring, clamor
very much for the " dear people." Mr. Gra
ham's letter shows an elevated and patriotic
spirit, as well as a true aud earnest view of
bis own Interest, and the interest of every
other tax-payer and property-holder In mis

garden where no weeds mingle with the
(lowers, but all Is lovely to the senses. It is
a dish of nightingales served up by moon
light to the mingled music of manly tender
ness aud gentle whispering and eagerness
that does not outstep the bounds of delicacy ,
aud a series of Hutterines, th robbings, high
pulses, burning cheeks and drooping lashes.
But, however delightful It may fie, "Court
ship" is, nevertheless, a serious business. 1 1
is the first turning point In tbe life of wo
man, crowded with perils and temptations.
There Is as much danger in the strength of
love as iu its weakness. The kindled hope
requires watching. Tbe rose-tin la of affec
tion dazzle and bewilder imagination,' aud
while always bearing In inlnd that life
lthout love is a barren wilderness, it
should not lie overlooked that true affection
requires solid supports. Discretion tempers
passion, ana it is precisely tuat quality
which oflenerthan any other la lound to be
absent In "courtship." Young ladies in love
require wise counsellor". They should not
trust too mucn to tne impulses 01 toe ueart,
nor be too easily captivated by a winning
exterior, la the selection of a husband,
character should be considered more than
appearance. Young men Inclined to intem
perate naoiuft even out aiiKuiajr mroiy
make good husbauds to the end. They have
not sufficient moral stamina to en Die mem
to resist temptation, even In Its Incipient
stages, aud, being thus deficient In self-respect,
they cannot possess that pure, uncou
taiuiuated feeling, which alone capacitates
a man for rightly appreciating the tender,
loving nature 01 a true woman. iuu irre
ligious mau is like a ship without a rudder,
aud be never cau make 'a good husband;
lor a house darkened by ould skepticism, or
an luUillereuue to religion aud lu duties, la
never a home ills merely a shelter; but
there is little warmth lu the atmosphere of
the rooms, aud every object lu them looks
chill aud chilling. The Indolent tuau, like
wise, cannot be expected lo make a good
husband, fur he uekieets bis time and wastes
his estate, allowing it to be overrun with
thistles aud brambles and subsist on tbe In
dustry of others. Every precaution, then,
is necessary in me selection 01 m nusravnu.

1 wish to say in one ami all, 11 you nave a
home iu Maury, stay with It. California is
a good country, and where I am, a healthy
oue. A mau can make two or three dollars

ry, but when you make it there Is no way to
enjoy it. Here Sunday aud Monday ar

family can do well here. Hut he must have
the firmness of a rock, or he will b led oil.
Parents, keep your sons away from Califor

was good society. Society is bad, aud will
contiuue so. i he heads ol families are as
bad demoralized as the children. I should
be well pleased iu California, if 1 hud as
good society as I left lu Maury.
