In the vest pocket 01 the deceased was
found the following note:
"1 do this terrible deed from remorse. I

and his family. God forgive me; I cannot

As to what this means there are many
surmises and rumors, but none of them of
sufficient foundation to justify us In giving
them. The deceased was born and raised In
Dixon county, Tennessee, where he now
has a brother. We understand his parents
are both dead. When he reached manhood
he went to Pulaski, and there lived several
years as clerk In the store of Jacob Voorhlea.
At the instance or the late Judge Nicholson

clerk in the store of W. J. Dale. He held
the position 01 clerk until 1953, when he be

together until 1859, when Mr. Dale bought
Mr. Larkins out, paying him about 912J000
as his part of the protita. Mr. Larkins then
became a partner of James Akin. The war
coming on soon after, their business proved
a failure; and after the war Mr. Larklna

Well, Mr. C, we will tell you as near as we

flower lust blooming into loveliness a flow

waters ot old Rutherford. She is as pure,
tender and fair as the delicate lily that rears
lis lovely head to grace some loneiy spot.
No purer, more tender, fairer flower,
Ever bloomed in Eden's rosy bower.
We long to breathe the sweet fragrance
through the dear old Herald and Mall from
so lovely a flower. Why walste tby fra

We sympathize with Mr. Spark Skelley In
his sad misfortune. He lost his wheat, meat
and all that was In his bouse. Tbe good

We learn that Mr. Sam Roberta, the prince
of good and clever fellows, offers to furnish

See! a band of youthful'ma'ldens, : '
Pausing with "reluctant feet,"
By the swiftly rushing waters.
Where "the brook and river meet;
Roses bloom upon tbeir faces,
Roseadeck their sonny hair; '
And the glory of life's morning,
. Rests upon -each forehead fair.
And the goal for whloh they've striven,
- Through so many happy years;
They have reaobed; but oh) its brightness
Now seems strangely dimmed by tears;
For not lightly may be severed,
Golden bonds by friendship riven;
And they linger o'er the parting
This gay, careless band of "seven."
Now there speaks m lovely maiden.
Through tne smiles and tears;
"Why cast we this mist of sorrow . .
f Orer our happy coming years T
In this world of change and changelings,
"HUH some constant hearts are given ;
"Come what may with each other
' "We'll be true we still are "seven."

"We will stand by each companion;

And ala! ? but here she faltered.

Should there one be called to leave us, '
"We will mourn beside her bier.

"Shall the guardian angels be; '
"Unto those, who still must journey "

Have already knelt as brides.

And the last of these was "Lucie!"
Ob! our lovely, peerless flower !
Twas not strange, that God shqtild want
To adorn His heavenly bowsr!
But we loved you so! our heartstrings
Had so ort been torn, and bled;
And so many of our dear ones.
Had been numbered with the dead; -

And we cried out "Father ana.n!r

And you slowly faded from us.
And we've laid you with thereat;
And oar hearts break, -e'en while know-

Little thought we, when we claimed you,
From the smiling band of "seven;"
That your budding charms were destined,
Not, tor us to bloom; but heaven.

him up to die. He was a plain and honest

as would make a fine acquisition to any

man I ever met in Hi lis bo ro, and I think
bim to be one of the most promlneut mem
bers of the Christian Church lu that com
munity. Tbe church will miss him when
he Is dead. I preached one night recently
at tue residence of Mr. Sterling Peach, three
miles from Hlilsboro. A warm, hearty
welcome was given me by my old friends.
A good congregation was In attendance.
Twenty-four of the Burnes family were In
attendance, and it was a bad week for
burns too. for it was the same week that Mr.
John A. Wiikle col his barn bu.'ned. but
that was too serious a matter to joke about,
I was told the barn, which vii large and
fine, with three head of mules, oue fine
mare, a thresher, two wagons, IM barrels of
corn, a large amount of hay, ploughs, har
ness, ana many otner things were consumed
in the conflagration. It was thought to be
the work of an. Incendiary, and suspicion
pointed to one Abraham Demoss, colored,
as the guilty party. Whether tbe Hon.
Abraham Demoasor any of that worthy, in

The refusal of Hon. W. C Wnittborne to
allow his name to again go before the peo
ple of the 7th Congressional District of Ten
nessee for a teat in the next Congress, Is
Ve'v much regretted by bis many friends
In this portlou of Mississippi, anion whom
are quite a large number who were once re
sidents of old Maury. Mlsalsslppiana have
noticed bis course In Congress, and tbey
feel that iu him the whose South has an
able representative as well as one ever faith
ful to kis trust.
- There seems to be a sort of partiality here
ior lenneessansi especially Columbians)
anyhow, as the slight ripple on the social
world this morning would Indicate. The
appearance of the "Witch of Ecdor" would
not have excited more curiosity amongst
those who happened to be where nearly ev
erybody always la at the depot when the
mall train arrives than was occasioned by
the appearance In town yesterday evenlna
ol aaoopleof distinguished looking gentle
men wnom your correspoDuen'.ai once rec-
oguized as citizens of Columbia. The old
men shook their heads dubiously, and said
lliev looked like they were Itinerant lect
urers maybe Bob Ingersol and friend. The
young men exchanged suspicious glanoes,
and not daring to trust themselves to give
expression to their views, said they didn't
look like "drummers." Your correspond
ent, though fully posted, and realizing the
situation of the voting gentlemen, dare not
? gratify their curiosity, which seemed to Iks
ast approaching, that suspense which is
more dreadful than to know the worst.
Such secrets, however, cannot be kept long,
aud by dark it was - generally known that
Hon. W. B. Gordon, of Columbia, Tenn.,
was to be married to Miss Moljle F ranklin.
At S o'clock this mornine. at the residence
of Dr. Sam F. Dunlsp, the bride's step-father,
the Rev. Mr. Robert H. Crogner, the gal
lant Tennessean was united to one of Mis
sissippi's fairest, loveliest and most popular
young ladles. The ceremony over the hap
py pair were the recipients of many warm
congratulations from a host of admiring
friends. It would be a work of supereroga
tion In ycur correspondent to attempt to
add anything to what people of old Maury
already know of that able lawyer, distin
guished legislator, and christian centleman.
Hcau W. B. Gordon. The bride la one of tbe
most beautiful and accomplished daughters
of the South the pride of her family, and a
favorite of all who know her. There Is no
circle lo which she would not be an orna
ment her benevolence and seal in behaii
of all'charl table objects are proverbial, while
she possesses that sweetness of temper and
cheerfulness of disposition,, which cannot
fail to win for ber la her new home un
bounded admiration. As she received con
gratulations of her friends, she looked the
very embodiment of queenly beauty. "Vir
tue never had a fairer temple," and no mon
arch could have looked prouder of his
queen who had laid diadem and crown
down for his love, than did the gallant Ten
nessean on this occasion. He looked as
I "Though heaven had made him, ',
! Such another world,
1 Of one entire, and perfect erysollte,
He'd not exchange her for it."
Among those present was Miss Bailie
Uunlap, ol Columbia, who, from indications,
is likely to be called upon by some ol the
young men of Sardls to pay the debt Maury
county owes Mississippi, and then Sardls
and Columbia can pass receipts lull on this
score. J. H. A.
Newville, Cal., Maroh 4, 1878.
To Uie Editor of the Mernld and Mail : ,
I will write again aa I thlak a letter from
California Is read with interest. I will be
gin by saying: in California there ar the
largest farmers of the world, also a greater
amount 01 wealth,, taking Into considera
tion the population. I shall give a rew
names in Coloosa County, the county which
I have stopped in: George W. Hoay, who
resides within 2 miles of the Willow's, has
19,000 acres of land sown in wheat: Dr. Glenn
is tbe owner or 63.U00 acres of land in Coloo
sa County, It is known aa the Glenn grant;
Isaac Bay less, who resides near Jacinto, has
K,ouu acres 01 land sown in wneat: last year
this gentleman cleared 16,000 on his crops.
so I have been told. Tbe Gupton Bros.,
who reside near German Lown, have about
l;i,0U0 acres sown In wheat; Saml. Wilson,
who resides neat Accident, has about l',0U0
acres sown lu wheat; John Bog as, late a
State Senator from our county, has several
thousand acres in wueat, a. v. Logan, owns
ld,000 acres sowu in grass. There are others
who own small farms of J.000. 3.000 and 6.-
0110 acres In this county; but owing to their
luslgnlucance wnen comparea witn loose
meniloned above we tske no note of them.
These are big figures, but are true.
To those who have written to me: 1 have
In my former letters given my honest opin
ions In reference to emigrating to Cal.; but
to answer questions: Harvest begins about
the same time as that you are used to, con
tinues lor about two months. The waces
are from two to three dollars per day owing
to what they do. Headers are used. Instead
of Reapers; Steam and horse Threshers are
both used: thresh from ZJM) to G.0U0 bushels
per day. Men work wben they pretend to
do any thing. Wages the year round on Uie
farm M per day. Generally speaking, the
hireling sleeps In the barn, near the mules;
twice each day he must curry and rub off
Mechanics get from twoand a half to three
dollars per dayt but half the time no em
ployment. Herders of sheep get per
moniu toneru in laeniouDiauu. . 1 armers
all sell their wheat aud buy Uour. Mills are
all of the best quality, but few In the coun
try it is some thirty miles to the nearest
one from this point. For any mau to get lu
as a miller be must serve the trade, and be
an accomplished miller.
There are a great many men out or em-
filoymeut at present. It costs more to live
u California than In Tennessee. I have
said a young man oould do well in Califor
nia; I meant by that If he Is a go-a-head
fellow, stay at his post, take care of his earn
ings, exclude himself from sports, Ac.; but
there are few that do this. There is in this
vicinity a young man ,who has been here
four years and in that time be has saved
(1,100 in coin, by his labor as a hireling; but
be is one out or a thousand.
School teaching pays very well; but it
takes a good English education to make a
teacher, well versed In the language of Cal..
also a good geographical knowledge.
California Is a fine country to loan money
at 1"j per ct. Men grow rich in a very short
time, who come here with a good little for
tune to Deain with. The old settlers think
there Is no country like California, and so
do those that come: one is content to stay.
the other soon wants away.
This Is a great country to nsn and hunt.
I wo eents went out huntlne some time
ago, gone three days, killed 21 Black-tails,
as they call them here; you call them
The people ofCalifornta are the most in
dependent people I ever saw, at the same
time they are the most dependent; over half
ol them purchase everything they eat and
No place lor gardens or orchards, ex
cept where they can iriigrate. I havn't
seen a grain of corn since I have been here.
Corn meal, In our little village. Is worth S

Beef 10 dollars. Mutton V dollars. Beans 8
dollars, Coffee 2ic. per pound, Sugar lflo. per

2,75 per pair.
Forty Inches of rain fell In 48 days at our
little village. Much rata throughout tbe
State. Tbe Sacramento river several feet
hia-bar than ever known. Great destruction
of lives and property, noo.oio acres said to be
under water. 1 ne nine town 01 uranu is
land swept off; not a house left, other
towns have been entirely afloat with tbe
water. Tbe damages done go up Into the
millions. One man lost 7.i,0U0 dollars worth
of property. Many are In distressed clr
cumstauoes. Home are almost on starva
tion, because tbey cant get anywhere, lu
conclusion I must say. Call lorn la is a
healthy country, as far as I have any
knowledge. To any that may be desirous
we are all well: my wife In better health
than for years past. We as a people are
pleased with the Sliver Bill

To the Editor of the Herald ami Mail:
With your permission, I will address a
few lines of friendly advice to your numer
ous lady contributors, and more especially
to those who are Just launching out upou
the vast ocean ot literature.
- "A word fitly spoken Is like apples of
gold In pictures," but this, I bold, Is not ap
plicable In any instance whatever to alaug,
o matter how ernrrtsive It may be. 1 be
lieve It to be a tact b -yond dispute, Mr. Ed
itor, that no lady ever learned how to use
slang )rojcrl!, or, lu other words, ever
learn eo exactly how, when and where to
use It. If they indulge In It at all It is In
such a mild aud weak form, or else to such
a superfluous degree mat It creates aversion
In either Instance. There Is a pleasaut me
dium in tbe use of slang that a lady never
attains. Now, I say this with all due defer
ence to tbe sex, tor I venture the assertion
that there Is not a more devoted admirer of
true, pure and yuhle woman than mys If.
So, young ladles, if you have a thought to
ex ureas, either Irom your Hps or pen, couch
It In the purest of Anglo-Saxon, avoid the
use ol slang phrases aud by-words altogeth
er, and your pathway through lire wlil be
marked by a proverbial purity, for which
those who know you will love, respect anil
praise you; whereas if you attempt to mak
use of the current slang of the day you will
make yourselves the subjtcts of light re
marks, which, if couveywl to you secoud
banded, will grate harshly upou the finer
senses of your tender natures. It Is wo
man's especial mission to uphold the good,
the true and the beautiful In this life, ami
It la enough (hat the rude "lords ot crea
tion" should Jeopardise tbeir nobility by
Indulging this foe to enllabUinineut and
purity of speech, and, therefore, 1 will warn
you again. In the fralimug of your thoughts
to discard indisorlmlnately the use of any
words or phrases whatever that breathe of
the unchaste air or slang, and a virgin purl
ty will adoru ycur eternal requiem.
