at Orchard's, I'uiou street, where it has
just been framed in a marsive and elegant
gold leaf frame, made by Mr. Orchard,' of
leaf 1TJ carats Hue itself a beautiful piece of
art. The picture is not a mere portrait, an
accurately grouped collections of lines and
colors, giving single likenesses which a
photograph can do. It is a work of art, in
which the spirit shines through the lines,
that subtle spirit winch distinguishes tbe
portrait Irom the work oi art something
seen at a glance, hut indescribable a har
mony iu details aud unity ot design which
discloses character, aud not mere lifeless
physical outlines. The portrait is a bust,
life size, elegaulty dressed In iigured black
silk, with a draperv of black lace mantle or
shawl cast across tbe lelt shoulder, aud a
crcjte rut-he al the throat. The hair Is taste
fully dispersed in curls about the forehead,
and the head surmounted by a black cap
lined with while crrje, 'ihe costume is
rich and elegant, bat simple, and tho ;
easy and natural. Those who bave vlsitdd
Mrs. Polk at her borne will recognise her
picture to be as they bave seen her. The
features are exquisitely lined, giving faith
fully that mingled air of elegant repose and
relinement, with power and flrmuess,
which have distinglshed her who bas beeu
so long the first lady of Tennessee, The col
oring is delicate and harmonious. While It
will bear minute criticism, tbe uuityof de
sign and harmony ol detail shown in the
general ellect Is its highest merits. The
back ground is a decided featuie iu the pic

hounds. Sometimes there will be a dozen
men with twenty-five or thirty bounds In
the chase. Chief among the sportsmen are

more tnau any one we ever Knew.

Hou. II". C. Whitthorne is one ot the finest
detectives and exposers of fraud we have
ever sent to that metropolis as our repre
sentative, and uo oue has ever wrote of that
aud other things more graphically than Mr.
Bullock, but to the point. The eveniug of
the 2-ith of May, I dropped over into the
Lcatherwood vicinity, aud spent the night
with old uucle Jobu Gracy, on Uracy's
Branch, accompanied by the Uev. E. W.
White. Brother Gracy was born a little
more thau seventy years ago; was married
iu livll, and was a member of the Methodist
Church before his marriage, and as far as
we know, lived a consistant one through
life. He was not ouly "in the sear and yel
low lea: ot life," when recently visited by
his last and present pastor, bul he was af
flicted with dropsy, so that It was plain
enough that "his latest, sun was sinking
fast." "But there was light In the valley."
Aud while we saug and prayed with him,
be raised a shout of holy triumph. This
good old man passed over the river in great
peace, June 1 lib. He was distantly related
to a large ana very respeciaoie lamiiy oi
Gracys. I knew him in my childhood in
Giles county. On the night of the lth of
June, I had the pleasure ol visitingMt. .ion ,

community. With such men as Brothers
Southall, Sednerry, witli their noble wives
and sprightly sons and daughters trusting
In God, they cannot fail. Two days latter

welcomes and affectionate greetings await
them. The press of farm work being now
meusurally ovjr, as well as tbe hurry and
uusne in almost every other department of
business, gives opportunity lo tne middle
aged again to visit the bomes ol tbelr child

tectiou upon the furrowed ciieek ol aged pa

tbe dull season a lime of happy re-unlons,
a period of most pleasing enjoyment.
our neignoornoou is Having its snare in
tbe general rejoicing, and notwithstanding
the iailure of the wheat crop, the great de
pression in business of all kinds, and the al
most bankrupt condition ot our cutlte

Mrs. B., while a young lady in our midst,
had many warm friends, and though lor
the most part they have scattered or died.
yet a few remain, who still cherish the
memory of many pleasant hours spent iu
her society, aud will ever take pleasure in
extending to her a cordial welcome whefi
sbe comes among us.
Mrs. T. J. Perry, from near Bigby vllle, is
spending the present week with her pa
rents, Esq. M. M. Kussell and lady, Mrs.
i'erry bas such an industrious, go-ahead
husband that It is impossible for him to be
with bis wire, yet so glad are we to have his
"better-hair' with us. that we will have to
excuse the absence of the other half.

Tint Conceet Last Fhidat Nioiit The
concert giveu ut Hamner Hall last Friday
night was a decided success, and we don t
think we would say too much were we to
make tbe assertion that It was Just a UUle
belter than any gotten up by the musical
taleut of our city for a long time. Mlsa Ro
sa Burnett, the "queen of song," never sang
with more expression and clearness. Miss
Carrie Smith sung Salutore A more, and was
eucored so heartily that she sang a selection
from "Mother Goose." MlssOdorn, In oar
estimation, bas few superiors as a pianist
we were about to say she equaled Mrs. Mc
Kinney, but think tbat a broad assertion,
lor Mrs. McKluuey plays divinely. Then
came Mrs. Smith's selections In reading
and recitations, which were rend with
m ucb expression, aud were highly appre
ciated and enjoyed. Misses Brown and Ma
loue played weU tbelr part: Miss Brown,
who has been a pupil of Mrs. MeKluney,
performrd very creditably opon the harp,
and last, but not least, the overtures were
well played, there being a dozen or more in
struments. Taking it upon the whole, it
was a splendid eulertalninent, and mucb
credit Is due those who worked Bo faithful
ly in getting It up.
Fouutu of Joi.r. Rather a quiet day.
Not mauy people in town. Picnics etc. In
country took tbe people. Shooting Clob
practiced shooting under the bluff. Tbe
colored people had a procession from town
to their picnic grounds. During tbe day
the subject of must interest was the louis
vl lie race between Ten Broeek and Molile
McCarthy Ibis was all tbe talk.
