SPRING H ILL ITEMS.
The Quarterly meeting came oil according
to appointment, bnt was poorly attended
on Saturdav. both forenoon and nicht,. The
congregation, on Sunday, was as la.ge as
could have been expected, considering the
nnlavorubleness of the day. About nine
o'ciock, dark clouds began to roll up from
the south and west, and heavy peals of
thu nder announced the rapid approach of
coming rain. The threatening appearance
and falling showers, kept many of our peo-
Jiie at home. The Rev. John F. Hugues,
'residing Elder, was present from the com
mencement to the close of the meeting,
preaching at each service, most excellent,
practical sermons. At the close of the
morning service the Sacrament of tbe
Lord's Supper was administered, after
which the congregation was dismissed with
the doxology and benediction; Tith the re
quest that tne Methodists of tbe assembly
remain in the house f. r a few minutes. Mr.
Hughes then presented to his own people,
in words of kindness and affection, the fi
nancial condition of the Siatlon, and the
necessity of Immediate and earnest efforts
on the part of the Stewards, and mem bers,
co-operating with them, to raise by volun
tary acuon, a sum sumciem 10 meet ice
current expenses of this charge. It seemed
strange, in this community, that Saturday
and Saturday night s service should pass,
with only one Steward and one ex-Sieward
present, yet sucn was ine tact, ana sunuay
showed but litile Improvement In this re
spect, and the paimul reflection was forced
on the mind of the venerable Elder, that
either his ministrations were unpopular
wiin me cnurcn, or eise ine stewards ana
members have lost their Interest In the
church. His appeal to the official membets
was kind and touching, stating that his love
for this people had commenced wilh his
youihtul ministerial iabois, and had never
Known any abatement, true, many of his
most dearly beloved lriends aud brethren,of
this place, whom he had met here in other
aays, are now gone, tut ineir memory is
embalmed la his heart; and for their child
ren he cherishes almost a fatherly affection;
and tbe deepest Interest for their spiritual
and eternal welliare. Let no monied trans
actions keep you away on these Quarterly
Meeting occasions. If you have tailed to

a speech; which lor wit, anecdote, illustra
tion and brilliant Imagery, has never been

place. He spoke attain at night. 10 a large
audience, ana organized a lodge of Good
Templars, numbering fllty-tbree members.
He spoke at Thompson Station on Satur
day uigni, aud organized a lodge there of
seventy-six members. Co). Leo Bullock
and Samuel Watkins, of Columbia, lent the
aid of tneir Influence 10 the gotai cause here
aud by their presence aud words of cheer,
encouraged the speaker, and led on the tim
id, opeued wide the uoors of the Order, and
very materially assisted in perfecting the
organization. Let thest and their noble co
woikersin the temperance cause, in Co

branches which have been planted here and
at Thompson Station; but give them the
care aud culture, which their experience lu

towards completion. The old house was
long tlie residence if Dr. Spiny McKissack,
who had part ot it erected about the year
isvo, bemg the first house ever put up in
what is now Spring Hill. There are hal
lowed memories connected with these old
mansions which cause some of us lo leel sad
at their removal, There Is tho old residence
of Capt. James P. Peters, oue of the most
prominent ol" our citizens, half a century
old, has been moved and converted into a
steam gin-house. Tbe residence of his fath

try, has been taken to pieces and put up lor
negro cabins. These sacred old relics ot
other days, together witn some residences
yet standing, but where the former occu
pants are with us no Jinore, came up fresh to
mind, as the preacher, on Sunday spoke of
a son, who, alter the death of bis falutr aud
mother, was having their old dwelling
pulled down. He was standing by looking
at the workmen as, piece by piece, they
proceeded in their worn. When they had
gotten all tbe logs down, and were begin
ning to to tear up the floor, he ordered tuem
to stop, saying, "There is the spot where
my fdluor's chair used to set by the little
tanle, ou whlcu Jay toe family Bible, aud
Just on the other side was ray mother's ac
customed seat, while my father would read

lo heaven, in my behalf. Touch not anoth

Col, S. A. Pointer missed one of his horses

ing down cotton stalks iu a wheat field, up
on the piace, came upon a sink hole and on
looking Iuui it, lound tlie missing horse,

CAMPBELL STATION ITEMS.
On the 8 h of March last, a man passed
through this vicinity riding a mule. He
repTesente I himself as a trader, and inquir
ed wno uau any ja. came 10 sen. .tie said
his name was Johnson, and that he lived
sooth of Pulaski In Giles County, and had
recently come there from Alabama. He had
light hair, the right eye out, about five feet
and eigbt Inches high, apparently between
lorty and nity years or age ana very ugly.
He went to Mr. Caleb Hobbs and swapped
the mule to Mr. Hobbs for a horse. He went
to Pulaski and sold tbe horse to a livery
stableman. A short time after he sold this
horse he brought a mare into Pulaski and
sold her lo someone. A gentleman from
Athens, Ala., came to Pulaski aud got the
mare as stolen property. A short lirne be
fore the mare had been stolen from Athena,
a mule was stolon near the Alabama line in
Giles County. After the man from Athens
come and got his mare, It was thought that
tbe mule was stolen by the same man, and
that be bad swapped the mule for the horse
and then brought the horse to Pulaski and
sold him. Mr. Foster took the horse out of
tbe stable, and started round over the coun
try, to see if be could nud where the horse
come from. When he got into this commu
nity the horse was recognized cs one that
Caleb Hobbs had. Mr. Foster went to Mr.
Hobl s. ant the mnle and carried it to Pulas
ki. So Air. Hobbs hss lost his horse. It
turned out that this oue-eyed horse t biers
name was not Johnson, but Boh William
son, and was well known about Pulaski.and
that the people there were afraidto buy
stock from him. He lived East of Pulaski,
and was a brother of the man Williamson
who was killed at Samuel's Mill sometime
lastyear. He is still running at large, but
we hope he will be recogniaed by the de
scription, and be arretted.
The man Brlgus, w ho killed Lrsery in

got smith Briggs, another cousin, to come
with him Ui tuis Station. When he left Jim
Brim's', he went bv the widow Dodson's an
got there before day. He sold his mare to
Mrs. Dodsou for forty dollars. She paying
him thirtv dollars and the other ten to be
paid sometime in the future. He rode the
mare to the Station and Smith Briggs car
ried her back. When he got to the Station
he borrowed a pair of scissors, with which
to cut b is whiskers, he then took a razor
and shaved himself clean and changed his
clothing. After be had completed his toilet

If we compare the productions of Tennes

we wiil find them greatly increased in the

iu 1877 Sl.OOU.UOU. These are not tlie supposi
tions of oue disposed to exaggerate either in
favor of or against the rrbsperity of the
State, but they are facts taken from official
records, which cannot bedeuted. Why then
is there so much pecuniary distress in the
land? One of the main causes is the very
d'scourairinc and depressing speeches made
to show the people that they are paupers
and bankrupts, and that, their atfaiis are
in a terrible condition. This begets a want
of confidence, creates a money panic, and
produces or intensities the s:ringency in
inonev matters, which all so much dread
I he verv etlort to induce Tenne see not to
meet her obligations lias had a most disas
trous elled Ul on me llliaueni a u i. 01 tne
siate, and produces much ofthe pecuniary
distress, which all now feel. Missouri, with
no more sdvantaces than Tennessee, and
with much higher taxation, has arranged,
aud is paying her State debt, and
has tieen doing so since the war: aud
yet there is less complatut in Missouri than
is made bv a certain class of speakers in
Tennessee. Our failure to meet our obliga
tions, and our apparent tin willingness to
adjust our debt upon lair, reasouaoie ana
satisfactory terms, has driven, and is driv
ing, capital Ironi the State, and is prevent
ing its improvement in miiiiLg and manu
facturing, which we so much need. Permit
me, in conctusou, fo make a tew practical
suggestions. Thereshould be retrenchment
in tne management of our State Govern
ment. Expenses should be greatly reduced,
and this could bedoneuot only without any
injury, bnt with great benefit to tbe public
service. The friends ot Stale credit should
also coufer with our creditors, and get a fair
aud liberal proposition fiora then, whlcn
would be acceptable to our people, and not
do injustice to the holders of our bonds. In
any settlement that may be made, the rale
of interest should be decreased as the prin
cipal is increased, and it, as I believe, pos
terity, which will enjoy the greatest bene
fits from our improvements with the most
abilitv to pay, snould bear the largest por
tion of the debt, then the rate of interest
should be low, so as to afford the most re
lief to those who are in greatest need.
I have suffered as much by the stringency
in money , ny the hardness of the times,
and by tne loss of slave property, as the
loudest croaker In the laud, but I know full
well that the policy these men advocate,
and the measures they prop e, are no rem
edies at all; that they tend to aggravate and
not to alleviate the distress, to make money
matters more tight and baia times still more
hard. I have nolnterest either direct or In
direct in bonds. All my feelings and Inter
ests are with and lor the people, and there
fore I am so much in favor of a reasonable
aud satisfactory settlement of ot.r State
debt, for so long as the agitation continues
in regard to this question it will aUect the
price of property, the business Interests and
moneyed apairs of the people.

THE FIRST SETTLERS.
The Indians who inhabited North Amert
ca at Its discovery by Columbus, ware a bar-
uarous, savage people, without any accoin-
Eaniments of modern civilization. When
uropeans came to this country they laid
uie luuuuauoo 01 a great nation, ana nnai
ly established a Republic that has lasted
more than one hundred years. The United
states existed originally in thirteen inde
penuen 1 stales, wnicn united and formed
general government. Of those thirteen
jonu Carolina was oue. What is now call
ed Tennessee was claimed bv North Carol!
na. As the wiidwoods were penetrated by
the early settlers. North Carolina extended
her government over tbe country, and all
the territory lying west of the Cumberland
mountains, as well as what we now call
East Tennessee, was embraced In her boun
dartes. The first settlers of this beautiful
tand were a hardy, brave, enterprising race.
Tbe country was very Inviting. There
were no Indians inhabiting the land we
now call Middle Tennessee. This territory
wasreservea as a nunting ground, ana it
abounded in deer, hear, eik, and other wild
animals. These afforded not only fine
sport, but they furnished the new comers
witn meat, wnicn was otten tneir only food
for bread could not be procured. As salt
was very difficult to obtain, they saved
their meats by drying In the sun and open
air. This was commonly called jerking.
Tbe meat was cut into thin slices and slung
upon sticks, which were placed upon scaf
folds in tlie sua or over a slow fire and kept
till perfectly dry; in this condition it re
mained sound aud sweet for a long time,
There were no roads from North Carolina
or East Tennessee to this great valley.- The
emigrants either kept tbe Indian trails and
paths made by buffalo, or guided by their
pocket compass followed ineir course till
they reached their destined point. They
generally came lu companies. Each man
had bis rifle gun, shot pouch, powder horn
ana ammunition, r. icii company uau
number of pack horses on which they
brought their camp aeiues, provisions ana
blankets, and when families came through.

HABITATIONS AND FARE. sr'
At first they settled in camps or rude
huts, where they lived till they could clear
a natch. 1. Ian t some corn and erect a cabin.
These camps were constructed with forks
ana poies ana covered wnu ciap-ooaros.
The hinder part reached the around, the
ends were closed in, while the whole front
was left open. This opeii space was the
nlace for the fire bv whlcn Ihey were
warmed and where they cooked what pro
visions tuey migui Deaoie 10 procure, a
skillet, with a lid, a small pot, and an oven,
were consiaerea a large supply ot cooamg
uteusils. Those who were not so well pro
vided, broiled their meat unou the coals or
on a spit madeot a nicxory switcn, wune
ine bread was baaeu iu ine asries or on a
journey vulgarly canea a jonny caae-
board. 'liiesejourney-cBKes were ut ncious.
It was a choice bread ou the table of the
most aristocratic pioneers. As civilization
progressed, houses were built. These were
log cabins, mads of trees cut from the lor-
esis. They were usually small ana ouiii 01
round poles or logs roughly scalped. One
-door-way, and a window made by cutting
oue pole lu iwo, were ine common mooes 01
admitting the inhabitants, also light aud
air. The chimneys were made of ciay aud
slicks, and the cruets sometimes daubed
with mud. The floor was enner eariu neat

TH E VIRTCE8 OF OCR ANCESTORS,
Now, all these things constitute a theme
for meditation asudylbat may be made
1. We snou'd honor the memory of our
ancestors, and eherish their virtue. They
were poor, but In the main honest. Aud
when a man did steal he was whipped,
branded and his ears cropped, and he sent
out to steal no more. Ihey were brave.
To be sure they did not shoot and butcher
one another, like savages, but when they
fought they took it fist and t-kulj, and when
one party was overcome and cried
"Enough!" his antagonist raised him up;
they washed, drank together, shook hands,
and were friends. A man in tbose days
who wou.d have carried a concealed pistol
or dirk, would have been branded as a cow
ard. I suppose the late method of killing
may be considered more genteel and scien-
tiuu, xnueeo.11 a man ne noiniug more
than a monkey developed, or a monad
evolved, it is not much matter bow he Is
killed; It, however, should be done by in
volutions; If a man is a monad evolved, a
monad should be a man involved. Public
men In tbose days were always expected lo
be men of integrity. Two questions were
asked concerning an office-seeker: 1st, Is
he honest? 2d, Is he competent? Our fa
thers dwelt in ordinary houses and lived
on wbolt soine strong food, and wore home
spun; they didn't know much about the
"hi-la-lu-tin," but they paid their debls and
uispenseu large nospitaiiiy.
