The acie igc iu Ibis county is much larger
than 11 was last year, and lrom all we can
learn, the number of bushels iu the county
will be Increased. 1 lie complaint now Is
that tlie price will be so lovv. Corn is look

W 1 L LI A M SPOUT ITKM3.
I uexorable death, cold arid inflexible, has
again invaded our midst aud lolded iu his
chilly embrace one of our most highly re
spected and sincerely esteemed citizens.
Wc allude to the doath of Mr. E. il. Sepers,
which occurred about noon on Tuesday last,
lllli insi. For some mouths previous tc his
death he had sull'ered greatly with sore eyes,
and was in feeble health generally, hut was
not thought to be in anything like a dan
gerous condition till a lew days before his
death. Most intense and excruciating were
his sutferlugs during these few days. F'or a
little whilu before the brittle thread was
sundered he became comparatively easy,
and finally in peacelul recognition to the
will ot Hi in whom, through life, he had ar
dently loved and faithfully served, he
breathed his last. His remains were carried
to Ziou Church, where his funeral was
preached by Mr. Mitchell, the regular pas
tor of that church. Alter tlie funeral ser
vice the body was placed in its last resting
place in .ion Cemetery by the side of the
wife of his youth, and that of his only sou
and child, He leaves a widow ami home
nieces and nephews to mournj'i's depaiture.
In his death bis church and his lntmia e
circle of friends have sustaiued an irrepara
ble loss, aud our community a most exem
plary and substantial citizen.
Mr, J. B. Delk, of whom mention was
made iu our last items, as having been bad
ly hurt, by a falling limb during the recent
storm in our vicinity, is slowly improving,
aud it is now believed he will entirely re
cover. Hev. James H. Uussell (the crigiu.il Cip
niinder) met with quite a severe accident
about ten daysagj. While iu the act of get
ting into a wagon lie had beeu iiriviug, the
team started oil and rau one wheel of the
vehicle over quite a largo log, which so tilt
ed it t hat "I 'ncle J im" lost bis balance, and
was thrown violently to the ground. He
was insensible lor a while, but soon became
conscious. He then discovered tl lit he
could not move one of his legs. Fortunate
ly the accident occurred ver near the resi
dence of his brot her, Kq. M. M. Hussell,
to wiiich place he was carried on a liitir,
and then placed in 1km I, wiicre he has been
ever since. Tlie extreme sensitiveness of
the leg has, to Ihe present, so unnerved him
that he has not permitted sutlicicnt exami
nation of it to determine whether it is bro
ken or hut. fo. iill oi thiii: hovever, he Is
very cheerful and talkative, and lilu.ki s the
hope of his many friends that he will soon
be on foot again.
The Presbyterians here have fully repair

the late storm.

Is not gorgeous, but the structure is one ot
the best hewn log walls in the bounds of
my knowledge; the cracks are chinked aud
whitewashed with lime outside, and sealed
with dressed slips of plauk inside; the
Iloor is of white ash; two large tolding doors
m'c. placed i n the centre of one end of the

Tlie vliliious mind kuoweih ll-s oroincriu
tne dark." It requires neilher time nor
test lo make virtuous hearts coalesce; there
is a language without sound, a recognition
independent of Ihe visual ol guns, which ac
knowledges the kindred ol congenial some
almost tne instant lliey meet.
All love Is esst litially the same, hut mod
ified according to lis objects and by the
character of the lover. The love of children
for their parents, of nareuts for their off
spring, brotherly aud sisterly love, the love
ol irientlship, ol htni voltnce, and ine fer
vor of religious love, are modifications ot
the same sentiment the attraction that
draws us to our kiudied ttiat binds togeth
er all races, aud humanity itself, resting on
thohalherhood or God and the brother
hood of man. It Is but natural that this
love should vary iu degrees. Attractions
are proportional to proxiiuhy. Each per
son has his own special attractions.
There is love at first sight anil irientlship
at first sight. Generally such feelings are
mutual like IIjws to like, i.r as often, per.
harK.dit1erfc.net! lit nicely into each olher,
We lind iu oiheis, peril. :ps, w hat we hick.
J bus the weak rest ui,u Ihe strong, tin-
timorous are loud ol toe intrepid, and to
The scull ment of mve for tbe opposite sex
Is louder, laiirPul, passionate, and begins
ai ly in life. There is a love which men
.stigmatize, deride and yet encourage a
laucy aud liilaliiallou awiikenttl by per
sonal attractions, cometimes hy gratiiied
vauily and oftentimes by the most debas
ing proclivities of human nature. And
wheu this is the c;ise, it is presumable, that
tbe persons beloved are iosscssed Willi
those amiable iit.'owinenfs, such as binti
ty and the hi t- oi Haltering their oslenla
lloli, and the like.
Unsophisticated, iii-avcn-liorii love is Ihe
passion ol the soul, i ll such it may be call
ed i, which has Hs i iwe iu virtue, and its aim
the same would b-most unjuslly degiadetl,
il it was classed wit h what tlie herd gener
ally entitle lo-e. Such love I ive inean that
winch is purei, is as deep as Ihc unial hoiu.i
ble oceau, and is indelibly stamped upon
the soul. The (met has said:
" 'Tin said that 'time can conquer love,
Who darcsHssert ibesauie'.'
'Old Time' will slop his lolling wheel
W hen ceasfs love its inimi ;
Wheu the revolving wheel of time
Dots cease, oh, cease to move,
Then, then, not even then, alone,
Will stoji Hie strength of love."
The Idea that every afhichmcnt, every at
traction, every love between the sexes must
lead io marl iage; I hat no love can lie toler
ated but with that end in view, is u gre it
misconception. Jt deprives gentlemen and
ladies of Ihe slrehgl 11 and happiness tln
might have realized iu pure friendship and
pure love, and it leads to a luiitlil.ue of er
roneous and bad marriages. It is often t he
case that t wo persons are drawn together
by very strong u'liai tions and tender benti
lueuls Ior eiicn other, who have ho mole
right to lie mHiried lhau if they were broth
el and sister, hut who have tho same right
to love each ether. Their true sentiments
for each other, and consequent relation to
each other, are not understood by their
friends dud perhaps not by themselves.
Aud they are impressed by the in isuppre
hehsion ot o'.hers, by tiieir expectation, by
illiterate lallle, uy me prejudice Ol socieiy
founded upon low and licentious estimates,
to mairy; they lind that they must either
marry or lose their happiness iu each oth
er's society, and corsequeully they make
Hie irrevOL'e ible mistake.
W in n it l.i undi istood that there are oth
er loves than that of linn riage when the
peculiar attachment that justifies union for
life is tlisci iiniuatel from all olher attach
ments that may bring two souls into very
i.ciirand tender leial olis lo each other,
there will be more happiness in the worlu
and fewer incomplete, lmpei lected, aud,
t iii relore, more or less unhappy marriages.
Nothing cau be more detestable thau "p.ay-
iiig w Hi: fire," which goes by the nauie of
flirtation, or coquet i y; hut there are men
and woi.iii who have the real happiness ol
loving and ot being tenderly and devotedly
loved by persons ol the opposite sex loved
puielv, noblv ami happily, without injury
and witli gleet good.
Marriage, iik"ce'in:icy, should be n mo-
therof vocation. On, how Ai re, how jniln-i
