Several specimens of wheat have been
brought to our otlice, which show that
wheat Is turning out much better than was
expected even two weeks ago. Col. J. W.
Duuuington brought iu some wheat beads
from his farm in the western part of the
county, near Bighy creek, that are very
flue. Much of tlie land will yield from fif
teen to twenty bushels per acre, though
there are some poor laud that will scarcely
yield anything. Too much poor woru out
land was sown in wheat last Fall. It re
quires good land and good cultivation to
make good wheat. The wheat panic is over,
and Maury county will produce more bush
els ot wheat than she did last year, owing to
the increased acreage sown. Next Fall let
our farmers be particular what kind of land
they select lor wheat, and let them prepare
it well, and we will have an increased yield
per acre. Keineinta-r that badly prepared
laud seldom makes good wheat.
We are informed that two young men,

tlie visiting minister was greeted with a

ence to ten lepers, whom He had cleansed
while on his way to Jerusalem, only one of
whom came bsck to acknowledge the favor
and to glorify G.xl for His goodness in beal

Tuesday night there was a debate between
the Platonic and Himbillou Societies on
the question, "Resolved, that tho I'ntted
states, as a ualiou, is declining," the Ham
billons attirming, the Platonics denying.
Luther Calleus, of Texas, aud Juo. Harrison,
of Tennessee, represented the Uambilion
Society, aud William Pinson, of Cheatham
cotiuty, and Solon Rose, of Pulaski, the Pla
tonic. The debate has been mare commen
ded than auy previous one, and deservedly
so. The young men neglected no school du
ly, and the work on the dt bate was duni st
odd moments. They are among the best
scholars in schoot. Tlie three rooms of the
Academy were thrown Into oue audi, nee
naiiii, audi he house was filled to its -tinost
capacity by a cultivated arid j au
dience. The cult ure of Pulaski, ..j unville,
Columbia, Mt. Pie.-vant, SpriLg Hill, Nash

resented. I.utlier Cal.ens is a fine speaker,
aud led ofl in gallant style, with the histor
ical facts that 1 he nations id' antiquity had
decliued. He enunieiaied Kgypt, Carthage,
Macedonia, Babylon, Greece and Rome.
W in. Pinson replied in tin able presentation
of the power and retources of our country.
He exhibited tact in the selection of his
points, and diligence in getting flowers and
flgur. s to adorn litem. While he wasspeak

without resources or influence, without
money or inventions, grow with rapid
strides, uuti I she reached gigantic propor

seventy thousand miles ot railroad bindlDg

IrozPii regions ol tlie North with the suuuy
plains ot the South. The telegraph clicked,
the engine pulled, factories bummed, tele
phones talked, and phonographs b- ttled
spoech for usa in future aaes. Juo. Harri
son lollowed in the most argumentative
speech of the occasion. He based his argu
ment for the decline ou a want, of patriot
ism, want of unity as exhibited in sectional
hatred. He argued that progress iu science
and literature could not be taltiu as abso
lute evidence of national progress aud sta
bility. His last point was from a moral as
pect! In bis entire t-peech he argued that
the decline being iu its incipience the evi
dences were found, not iu externals, but
lay al the national heart, in all the points
ol a deoate he is unsurpassed. Solon Rose,
of Pulnski, followed. He is lhe youugest ot
tho dispu:antf-; but he showed that he was
a t'.Kman worthy of their steel. He exhib
ited rciuaikablc familiarity with tlie politi
cal history of the country, and his hopeful
views and conservative position was in
marked contrast with the opinlous 0 the
masses and t he press of our State. Hisoe

On arriving at this place we found the

we almost wished ourself bick in Columbia,
witn its clean streets, inviting mil sines,
and smiling sunny skies, and in a country
where floods do not block business and stop

the country is so flat that when there is

destroy almost every kind of crop, aud tbe

Since the passage of the Potter resolution
to investigate the Florida frauds, the Radi
cals of the north are very Indignant, aud
are trying to create the Impression that it
wiil result iu great injury to the b.islness
interests of the county, while the in vestiga
tion will not show that Hayes holds his of
fice contrary to the will of the maj.uiiy.
While we do not believe there is a man with
intelligence north or south who has read
the testimony of the Louisiana and Florida
frauds but what honestly lielieves THden
was legally elected, yet to give official
weight 10 the lacl we hope to see this mat
ter sifie.l to the bottom, aud place the re
sponsibility of this great crime where it
justlv belongs- If It causes some Democrats
to wince, let them surfer lor the pin they
have taken in this disgraceful aLTalr. If tile
leaders of the Democratic party bad have
shown the necessary "back-bone" at the
proper time and the House of Representa
tives stood firm for Its rights aud demanded
that the count of the vole be proceeded with
as it always had oeen, and re'used to enter
into auy conspiracy to take this constilu- I
ttonal right from themselves, Tlldeu would
have been declared eh cted, and we would
have had no war, either from the ftict that
the Republican leaders would have "backed
down, and would never have taken the
responsibility ol plunging the country iuto
civil war when they were so clearly in ibe
wrong. But some of your Southern Senators
and R present a lives becomiuir alarmed that
ail would be lost, unless some com prom i.-e
could be effected, their inordinate zeal and
indecent haste was swift to make terms
with enemy, and hence the in famous el. ct-
oral com mission, which not only lu a tew
days gave seeming legality to one of the
reatest crimes ever perpetrated in a fre -
country, but established a piecedent that
will loug bang like tue sword ot liamocles
over the peace and prosperity of this coun
try as long as we are a nation; even threat
ening us Willi revolution and pniDting with
unerring tiuthfnlness to the instability of
our boasted Republican Institutions. While
we hope lo see this commission establish
with a certainty that no one can doubt the
tranduleutlocciipatlou of tlie Presidency, by
Hayes, and bind upon bis crown iu letters
ot fire thai he knowingly aud wilfully ac
cepted an office to which he was not elected, I
aud degraded and disgraced the highest of-I

ter this Is done, to leave him alone in his
unenviable glory, the scoru ol all holiest

that the country aud world should know
the great and patriotic Democratic party al
ter winning victory, abandoned the field to
the despoilers of the gov.rument, rather
than engulf the land in civil war. History
does not present another such example ot
patriotic heroism where a great jurty that

debt would iuvolve the South in ruin; bit!
this thing is not talked of up here only to
make political capital aud help keep this
miserable parly of public plunder! rs in
power a littie longer. They have nothing
as a party lo commend themselves to the
people all of the vicious auddamniible leg
islation of the past sixteen years is the work
of R tdicals, aud the rust aud decay, ruin
and bankruptcy that permeates every sec
tion ol the couutry is the legitimate off
spring ol their corruptions aud they know
aud leel this truth, and don't talk of things
that are of no benefit to the people and
country; but when they work to carry an
election, they rush uil to some convenient
battle field, and drag forth its ghastly skele
tons and shake them in tlie face of the peo
ple aud cry out to tbe country, "Beloved,
your murdered sous are the victims of the
slave power," and by such arguments pois
on the minds of tbe people, while they get a
furtiier Uase of power to rob and plunder
the country. Th is great Rad leal party that
"saved thecouutry," to roh and destiny it,
we are told, intend sending au army of po
litical blatherskites into every Soul hern
Cougnssional District where there is a hope
to return a Radical member to Coiign ss.
We hope you will meet these gentlemen
with "bloody hands to bospilabla giaves,"
politically speaking, aud give them to un
derstand Unit your pi-ople ot the south are
amply able to take care of yourselves, po
litically as well as otherwise, aud are not
under the necessity of sending north for
your political knowledge or for political
speakets to regulate your domestic affairs.
These speaaers will come ostensibly for the
purpose of protecting the ballot-box, but in
reality, to influence tne negro to deeds ol
vioieuce that capital may be made iu the
north to keep the bloody shirt prominently
before tlie minds of the people. Their mis
sion is a bad one, and bodes no good to the
peace of tlie couutry, aud we hope the south
may bu wide awake and bold on to the po
litical advantages It now enjoys, and not
yield an inch to the party that bos beeu
orced lo do you justice ouly because the
people no longer believe in tbeir bouosty
or their destroying policy.

foruiauou, we are taught bv geological In
Vi-stigalions, the world, durlug thecouutlehs
ages inai nave claused, has uudemone many
and lumht v chanties.
The min i cannot conceive of Us first con
dition, nor ol its earlier successive changes,
yet, we can lorin some idea ot their vastnes
auu irequeucy by judging from tbe present
era; knowing, as wedo, the uncertain t and
uuslabiiity ol things organic and lcoiganlc.
we are taught to believe that lu former ages
tbev were not less frequently subjected to
variations, than at tiie present.
Various successions of plants and animals
have flourished and beeu overwhelmed;

Mu h ot what is now laud has time and
asealu emerged from the sea, and as often
subsided; yet, through, all these cbants,
llle has constantly advanced toward higher
form and more plot use variety, both In the
animal and vegetable kingdoms.
"Change" is indelibly stamped in living
characters upon all terestiia.O;jec?s. Time,
with lis eff.iciug fingeis, blots out the pies
en. and each successive momeut hriugs
wilh il something different lrom lhat which
has passed. Nothing remains in its original
state. As we review the lives of great men
who have gone before, we are more forcibly
reminded )l this transformation. He who
stands to-day upon the topmost round ol
the ladder of fume, midst the applause ol
an admiring multitude, to-morrow gropes
alone in utter darkness. To-day we laugh.
to-morrow we weep.
To-day we have uefore us oue whose Influ
ence may be compared to a strong swift
current, which, failing over tlie pouderous
wneei in us course, produces, by superior
Miwer, a scries oi levoiut oils, no a man

In tlie lives of all men, there come long
pauses, w here the river ol exlsteuce seems
io How-on without a ripple to disturb the
even tenor oi lis course; when day succeeds
day, without the occurrence of any event
worthy ol record. Ami again, there are
periods full of incident, days of eveutlui

Many happy woodland scenes have I siuce

with rank weeds, is not recognizable; t me

clustering around the aged oaks,

The passing years iiave developed new
trails ol character in us, that we never
thought could exist; aud perhaps this re
sort of buy playmates has laded from the
memory of a line, J el it shall ever cling lo
