It is with Rincere sorrow that we announce
the death of our friend Charlie G. Joues, of
Louisville. A telegram came to his father,
Mr. pills Jones, on Saturday evening last,
saying that he had died suddenly at his
home, that afternoon,' lio particulars giv
en, but it is presumed that Ue disease
which hurried him oil' was either rheuma
tism of the heart, or apoplexy. About live
weeks ago, he was iu this neighborhood,
ou a visit lo his sged father and other rela
tivesthen in tbe enjoyment of bis usual
health. Iu a conversation wilh the writer,
to whom he made a short visit on that oc
casion, be alluded to the lamlly re-unlon
a hl.ch took place at his father's a year or
iwo'ago'i'-pu'k'i of It rb a joyous and happy
lime to all the' faintly, but remarked, "some
of those who weie numbered with that hap
py company of children, grand-children,
aud other descendants of my aged father,
have crossed over the river, and one by one
we will all, ere long, pass a vay; but after
awhile I hope we wtii all meet on the other
shore, In a more glorious re-uulon which
will never be broken up." Mr. Jon s was
lor many years a prominent merchant in

may be that tbe views 1 entertain are to

stage in ine paroxysm oi congestive lever.
Now the question arises, what Is congestive
fever, tor to a proper understanding of tbe
dlsersei most follow oroper application of
remedies-? This BUUBtion may sound a little
vain lor a aoctor as lar away irom tie cen
ter of the scientific circle as the writer is,
White I sball not enter into a fall discus
sion of the subject, as is done In most inedi
cal works. I shall make a few suggestions
for the reflections of others, and leave them
to their own conclusions. uougeNtlon may
be active or passive. Tbe first is Influenced
and governed by t'.e pbisiologtcal law, "ubl
est irrtlatioibl, ard is an active rash of
blood under vital forces to some particular
spot or organ. Passive congestion is more
properly a stagnation of blood either from
direct obstruction iu t he vessels themselves,
or from the withdrawal of those vital forces
which speed tbe curient on. Among tbe
chief ol those powers is tbe nerve force;
when this is cut oil tbe "vis a tergo" Is to a
certain extent gone, and tbe vital fluid
courses slugtshly on, instead of in the usual
cataract style. Now in the disease we are
treating ot which of these conditions pre

thereby, as completely paralyzing tbeir
power to generate the subtle nerve electrici
ty, as it it were a battery smashed with a

ly has bad one or more paroxysm of inter
mittent or remittent lever; when as the
lime approaches for another theie is a grad
uai cooung of ttie extremities, mostly the
lower ones, an increase of heat about the
head, increased frequency of tbe poise, and
some disposiliou to sleep. Tills may all
pass unnoticed by the bystander or nnrse
until some accidental manifestation occurs,
such as slglnng or restlesness, as there is
never in pure malarial congestion any feel
ing of cold or chill by the patient, its ap
proach being as insidious aud creeping as
the noiseless move of the asp, and even
when the attack is discovered at this stage,
and the pal ieut questioned, there is never
an acknowledgment of a cold leeilng,. and
wheu you hear some oue, as I nave, describe
a congestive chill as shaking tbe patient
out of bed you may know that he Is lguor-
ant of what be is talking, as such powers of

the iiu possibility of getting a remedy that
woul l restore the disjointed and deranged
circulation of blood and disturbed nerve
force, and from tbe effects of morphia on
my own system, it occurred to me that it
ought lo have a like effect In this peculiar
congesuve state, and was Induced to try it,
notwithstanding medicine bos taught for a
lite time that opium and all Its preparations
promoted congestion.- The result has been
most happy aud satisfactory, and 1 know
that I have seen cases snatched as It were

LETTER FROM CALIFORNIA.
Nkwvi i.i.k, Coli-sa Co, CAL., July 3, 187S.
Editor. Hkkald a.vu Maii,. ISy S. H.
Cruin. A fter so long a silence from me, 1
thought I would write you again. And to
begin, b ust, I will say that the flies are so
numerous that It will be with difficulty that
I write. It is as true here In reference to
tiles, as It was in Florida uuriug the Rebell
ion, that you could take a pint dtp, wield it
above your head and catch aouart of mos
quitoes, it Is extremely warm, (I should
say hoi.) The thermometer has been to lirl
degrees. Farmers are very busy beading
aud threshing grain. The yidld will be
small this year for the State of California.
In tbe first place there will be a great deal
of oats and some barldy i mucH of tbe
wheal. Then there will De a great deal: ol
chess and other weed seed in many parts of
Cal I for nit. There will also be a Considera
ble shrinkage in wheat, caused hy rust
which is all over the Slate.
Tbe heat iu the consoliuated Virginia and
California mines is so intense just now, that
tbe consumption of ice is at tbe rale ot !W
pounds per day to each man. Tue heat Is
greater at this time than heretofore In tbe
lower levels of the bonanza mines, owing to
the pi it lorm s used in repairing the snails.
ine Lands ol California bring higher pri
ces than any land in the United suites, ta
king the Stateoverand tbe onalitv of lauds.
The land is owned in large tracts. Now ttie
question is do these lands pay? It is admit
ted mat tue yie.d per acre is much less on a
large than on a small farm. To cultivate
"properly a thousand acres, lo make It pay-
any tuing, ne must nave very favorable cir
cumstances, and also a propitious season, a
good start, aud overseers as capable as him-
seii. every one Knows that these circum
stances are rare thing. In California, all
the large farmers are iuvolved iu debt. But
itstandsto reason that large farms cannot
pay, they are too expensive, in California.
especially. The simple items of meals ab
sorb a large proportion of their profits. If
the men go to one place to receive their
meals they waste much of the time that
would otherwise be employed in work, iu
going to aud returning. It their 'meals are
sent to them a heavy additional expense Is
entailed ujKin the farmer, and here It takes
numerous hands and numerous overseers,
nd these are very expensive, it Is well
known that effective supervision Is abso
lutely necessary, especially where men are
ouly emu oyed for a few weeks at a time.
in most instances ibese hands are indiffer
ent and careless, and without suiervisiou
they would waste tbeir time. But this
needed supervision cannot be naid lor ouL
of theordiuary profits of farming in Cali
fornia, .-now, if in is oe true, wmcn i mink
is, the land monopoly in California will
soon have run its race.
Some lands in California are fit for cra

A Party Em'lobe Sai.tpster Cavic.
(ulle a number ol youug ladies and gentle
men from the ltlgoy vllle neighborhood went
to Sail peter cave last Friday, July 12lh.
Dr. J. 11. Wilkes was pilot, and performed
bis part admirably well. Mrs. WU!e-i fhd
Mrs. White were the c'yn- aftj much
praise ls due them or tbe eleaul manner
in whU.h, l UUUtjs pausad oil. At noon a
mo-t ejegunt and sumptuous repast was
spread, lu which all participated, after
which tbe party descended the hill and en
tered the cave, led by Dr. Wilkes, wbo took
esptcal pains In explanation. The cave was
penetrated perhaps uo yards, and many cu
rious specimens of geologic wonders were
borne out by the happy crowd. We noticed
in this party the very beautilql MU FlftX

beY"lltUi.i8 face aud dejrlinent.
We nevurean forget the kind hospitality
of tbe ladies, and the true cordiality of the,
gentlemen extended to us, and we wish
them many more just such happy events,
and ourselves present at them all. In ) be
half of Mr, White we say, "!at. u,.l viir

Pursuant to the action of the Congression

town of Columbia, tbe commllicemen of
tbe Seventh Congressional District, com
posed of the counties of Giles, Maury, Wil
liamson, Hickman, lewls, Lawrence and

mm. As I presume a few lines from our
county will not be ont ot place, I will give
them to you, saying nothing ol tbe grand
scenes and attraction of Hickman, its beau
tiful streams, etc. l win only give the items,
or doings, of our respective county. Hick
man ls coming to the front at last a rail
road being built throngh to her county seat,
a steamboat paid her a visit, a newspaper
published and not a bad paper at that al
so a bridge being bnilt across the river at
Cenireviire; and most of all ls, we hava a
candidate out for Congress, which bids fair;
aud such a reduction in dry goods never
was known as was caused by John T. Wal
ker's rash store. Columbia cannot beat
blm in prices. Our free schools are in a
prosperous condition, and I hope to see
more interest taken in educat ion in our
county tban has been heretofore, for time la
coming when we will be classed according
to our education.
I saw lu a number of the Herald not long
since where a gent, near Rock Spring, was
throwing some of his fun to "Miss Jennie
May D." I would say ts him to talk to her,
but that it ls so common with him to us
poetry in tbat way. I have mingled with
bim. Well, I do not blame blm for com
posing those Hues to Miss D., for ihe ts such
a nice lady.
There is a new paper proposed in onr
county distinguished "Anderson's Tab
lett," and edited hy Mrs. R. A. Anderson
and Miss C. L. D. Meece, They aimed to get
the first number out last week, but set their
type wrong-side up, and It failed to print. I
would say to the "Pioneer" to be more
prompt, or you will be run over in Journal
Ism by those editors. Take your sprees ou
Saturdays and Mondays, and send our pa
pers oct on Fridays.
There was a great excitement not long
since on the river, canned by some mis
chievous boys, wbo placed themselves at
tbe different bends on tbe river, with gourd
bandies, and the lowest one gave a blow,
and the others followed in succession. Ev
ery person living near the river ran to the
bank, thinking it was the little Mary Clee
coming up again One fellow ran over a
sapling aud skinned himself very badly
but ls over it now. Also a stampede ou one
certain creek about tbe same time. There
was a steam mill put down, and tbey raised
steam and h'owed off, and some thought the
N. and T. R. R. was complete, and tbat a
train was-comlng. Some thought tbe Mary
Clees was coming up the creek.
I learn that all the dogs in Tolly's Bend Is
dead, by barking at the candidates, except
two, one female aud one male; and they
would have died, bad tbey not been penned
In a thicket back ot the house.
Tbe lieal ill ot the county is very good, but
rear our health will be Injured by talking to
the caudidates. We have only twenty-one
out for county ollices. and fifteen of them
must be beaten for office.
Corn and peanuts are very fine. Wheat
was very sorry not more tban five bushels
per acre. Frui. cannot be excelled In quan
tity no where.
The Good Templars have been swaying for
awnlle past, but the Murphy's are all the
go now. There was a body of them organ
ized at Liberty church in our county last
Saturday, aud talk of several other lodges
being set on foot. .
The editor of the 1'umeer has a wttly hank
ering alter June apples, so we learn. He ls
a youug gent. Just In his twenty-second
year. Well, Its 'not the apples, so much as
that young lady over Ihe river.
We have had a ii'iantity ot rain of late,
but now have the appearauce of latr weath
