IKnnison did tbc work, nnd he tried
to extinguish the fire, but failed.

It had only been a few days since Mr.
Fitzgerald's hand was cut off by his

-never. po!ue singly.
- Geo. A. Matthews left here last
week for Gallatin to see his sister,
who was thought to be dying, and we
learn.that she had died before he reach
ed hia destination. This is a sad le
reaved finnily, for it i only as it were
yesterday that he followed his sister,
Mrs. .Sinter, to her grave. Thus one
by oup, the roses depart ; who will be
next we knrw not.
if We'unHerstand that all of our fam
ily groceries are going to quit keeping
whisky,; niost of them have done so.
The ' Women's perambulating prayer
meeting' did not scare them out, for
we have, not got so low as to have such,
a thing yet. Our grocery men quit
from a sense of duty ami profit, fi.r
there is more whisky drank as sample
than they can sell.
The ' impression has gone abrorrd
that .the school tax in this county has j
been defeated. It was only deferred j
until the April term, and the prospect j
was never better for another tax to be !
levied, for school purposes. In several j A fresh i-tock of ladies' and gent's
districts . the vote has been taken bv j l oots and shoes at Shepherd A Har
the people and it has been uniformly j ,!1',;',u;n- 1'"r rash anl low for thc

manners are so often external, the
veneer and vami.-h, the bright glitter-
ing gold, the rind, the exterior which
cloaks that which is coarse, bad and
dissipated that so many good people
object to jxiliteness, and watch with
suspicion whoever idiows good breed
ing. I disdain pretenders ; we have no
love for polish that is used as a substi
tute for principle; I want the real,
not the delightful ostensible. I pre
fer a thousand times over a little rough
ness, plainness and awkwardness of
deportment a manner that has the
"hearty and hardy elements of na
ture" in and behind it to any of the
extra airs and showy graces which
seem indispensable in our best society.
There is true and fake olitcness, and
their difference is as the real features
and flesh of the face to a mask.
So, dispense with affectation. Make
mm affable, generous, intelligent, no
ble and philanthropic, and his actions
will naturally tend to true politeness.
Having these qualifications, it needs
but an effort to express them in the
simplect, noblest and most natural
manner to acquire true politeness.
