dence is still standing, about a mile -wast

birth, aud spent tiie days of bis early lile
there; be, like most of young men of that
nay, was poor, aud had to work lor bis dai
ly support. Wages were low a euilling
day wi.s the highest price, and uot uiifre
qnently six pence was all that con W be ob
tained for a day's work. Tbe writer lias

The days of Juneare like life's noon,
'J'bey leave behind the Mowers of spring;
And lull and winter all too soon,

Across our spring aud summer bowers.

Of unknown good and future ills,

The wheat harvest Is over. Tbe crop will
be light, as much of tbe grata will be small
aud shriveled. Tbe fancy Varieties ot
wheal, especially, have not done well. The
Missouri and Mediterranean bave stood the
test better tbau any of them, and always
will ou level heavy clay lauds. The Medi
terranean wheat is perhaps the hardiest of
all tne kluds, aud best adapted to level clay
lands, rich UT poor. It never tails to muke
some wheat, and is but little aflVcted by
rust; the rust may take all the blades oil',
aud it wlil then make a luir crop, it is best
adapted to grazing ot any wheat-, aud will
yield as well if put iu with ihe same care.
Tne wnite aud iaucy varieties ot wheat
rarely succeed ou level heavy laud; they
succeed best 01 rolling 'aud, light soil aud
neb gravelly bills. The oat crop was never
pei haps better thau tbe present one.

A VISIT TO tOL. TOM CRUTCH FIE LD 'S
It was a jolly party three Middle and two
East Tcuuesseaus Promptly at 3 o'clock,
westarted at ibe invitation ofCapt. Capt
C P. Robinson and Col.' WleiiU to visit tbe
w nit i-known "Crntcbneld farm.
" Well, Air. Joues." said Wield, to one of
our Middle Ten u "sseeans, "I bave sen
many representatives Iroiu Maury county,
lawyers, doctors, aud such, but. I have yet
to see auy one belonging to tbe working
classes." "15y Gar!" broke i-i Jones, "I
belong to that class." "Well," drawled our
wield, "1 am confounded sorry for you.
l ou have dropped into a very iuapprecia-
n e crowa tins evening."
Setting out irom Market street, we turned
up Vine, passed the City Cemetery, with tbe
tall Confederate Monument to our leit, aud
Fort n'iMMl ou oub ilsrut. but m ither war
nor politics wore thau rippled our conver
sation. . . , ,
"This," said Wield, determined to show
our "working man" all that could be seen,
"Is what we call l'.lack-Ja k.,"pointiug lo a
low, scrubby growth of woods, "perhaps you
bave never seeu anything of that kind be
Ioit?'' "I rather think It is an old acquaintance,"
' We.i, what do you lhluk of that wheat
"By Gar! it wouldn't make a flash," en
ergetically ?8 ponded Joues.'- "No," quietly
rejoined Wield, "that is uot our best land,

an oak near by, which read, "No bunting

"Yes," was ttie reply, "this is a part of the

countered Col c. in his shirt-sleeves, just in
from the fields. - - -
Embowered with orchards, vines and
flowers cosy as a bee iu a rosebud sits tbe
lariu-bouse. Two oeautiful magnolia tiees
close by the front door were covered with
buds and blossoms. After a drink of home
made wlue, (iu which our fiieud Jones did
noljoin,) made Irom Col. C"s. own grapes,
we passed lo his sheep lots. It wouid be

remarkable lor the beauty of their necks,
beads, and deer-shaped ears. We caiue to
the luilking-pena for evening, unconsci
ously to us, bad dropped down, and tbe sun
was iiidiug himself behlud the mountains.
Tbe milking, as we saw it, was done entire
ly by men. As the niillrers emptied their
Uowing buckets into larger tubs, we were
remiudodof the Cyclopean milking scene,
in Homer. Surely the bowls of the Cyclops
were not filled fuller, or more enticingly
thau Hie foaming vessels, taken from ibu
lvine ol tins prince of Est Tennessee far
mers! Then be insisted that we should go into
bis growing oats, that were bigber thau our
shoulders, yet only heading out. Joues pro
nounced the opinion of tbe parly, "never
hud seen anything sr fine." The corn iu
drilled rows spread itself over the 400 acres
ol" Tennessee River bottom, without a weed
or tuft ol grass iu it. Your correspondent
asked our "workiug-mau" why it was being
piowed? "Just to mas e it look; Hue," is
the repiy. Judeed.it was "a thing of beau,
ty." There lay the broad field, su-etchlng
as far away as the eye could see, up aud
down tbe river. The set ling suu bad con
verted the river Into a ribbon of gold that
gathered in this mantle of green. Looking
on the curved river, aud ibe mounlalus,
and this wealth that bad been created by
the band and brnin of man, we thought ot

Tbat Is. to-morrow. Solf nothing adverse

and fetid our tents and steal away to a land
whrrie some eves will be made brighter at
onrormlng. The Committeooo Naval Af
fairs of tbe House have had some very
stormy sessions in the last few dsys. It
was brought als-ut in this wny. Continu
ously for eight months Ihe chairman at the
bead o a rrjstnmlMee hid been ran
sack ui: the -records of the Navy Depart
ment end examining witnesses touching

country to know the result of bis arduoua
laboi and also Sfe tbe awful evidences of
maladmini.-itra'ion thereby disclosed. The
Republicans, or at least two or three of
them, remonstrated against this on the
grouad that they had no time to look Into
the testimony, and offered some other friv
olous and partisan excuses. They apposed
me reading oi me report- They assumed
that trie disclosures were partisan, and ab
solutely refused to hear a line of it rend.
This was prttty good acting for men who
weie looking for facts. Morse, of Massa
(Shosetts, asked them, "Why uot hear the
report; you don t know what ll is you say.
Itow can you say whether vou will endorse
it or nut on ill yon bear it?' - They would

cinctly staled in the report, shows that since

to one billion of dollars have been snent.on

have been spent for that purpose In money.

Department and ought to have" been used

tM),X0, to ringer for the same purpose, be
sides millions of stores, provisions, clothing
and other inateria's. The pertinent ques
tion is ssKed, wuai nave ine people lo
show :or these vast outlays of their money?
It will be remembered that Robeson in his
last report boastiiigly said tbat we had one
of the tlnest ami best, equipped navies
the wor d ever saw. In this rejsirt he was
backed up by tne report of Air. Harris, the
leader of Ibe Republican minority on this
committee in the last House. In this last
investigation the fact is disclosed and re-
p. tried by Mr. Hum that have the
niest, rotten and worthless Navy In tbe
world that great abuses have existed in
the Bureaus of tbe Navy Department. This
is the proof now iu t lie report and be'ore
Ibe committee. While Robe3on controlled
things in tlie last Congret-'s, no rel urns could
heoblained from the various Bureaus. At
the heglnniui of this Congress I he chairman
worked a month and got up tables of Inter
rogations and sent over to the Department,
add the answers to them are the means by
which It is discovered tnat utter disregard
for law reigned rampant in the Navy De
partment during Robeson's entire adminis
tration. These tables are given to the
couutry for tbe first time, and tell a tale of
wrone-doing anil maladministration with
out a parallel in our history. The report
siiows tor itself tberes-ult of the labors of
the cornmit'ee. It calls tor the indictment
and court-martialing of many prominent
officials and ex-ollicials iu the Navy. Chlet
among them is tee name oi noneson ann
two or three of his Heads of Bureaus, ihe
labors of tbls committee are bearly comple
ted in that line. The rvsval men them
selves say ihst the work done will be of
lasting benefit to the Navy ar.d people. Of
course the committee will have lo yc the
tiuisbJng touches put npon the great work.

It is with great regret t hat I chronicle the

thus been t be late of a great many vital
piestlons to te deterred, by the closing of
ho session so prion, The great bulk of the
Democrats favored a longer se.-sion, but
there were enough Irest less fellows on our
side who coalesced with the minority andi
brought the adjournment about. Last week
the Hon . John F. House made a magnifi
cent speech in favor of this road. In an
swer lo ir. lierneri.oi .Manama, our rep
resentative made one of the best speeches
bat lias been made ou the liubject. In it
he paid a tribute lo the Hon, John C.
Krown, which has received the unanimous
endorsement of that distinguished gentle
man s li u nds. ihe two speeches are pub
lished under one cover, and will be circu
lated all over the Union. In it our Repre
sentative took decided ground for the aid
asked for tbe road, and said owing to the
duUes which had devolved upon him In an
other tield, "he had not been able to give his
views elaborate' upon the question, but
that be should take tbe e-rliest,opportuuity

urged by statesmen of the "Strict Construc

will do great good among tbe Eastern aud
Western men. who know his well defined
views upon all riuestiqns relating to aiding
