recommending his re-election vas unan

that the Democracy of the Third Dis
trict will stultify itself by exchanging
him for a new ninn. As a successful,
workingmemher he id second to none.
A glance at the work he has done in
Congress is sufficient proof of thw as
sertion. For the improvement of the Tennes
see river he has got appropriations to
the amount of more than 1,000,000,
of which he procured this year 6020,-
000; aud for the Hiwassee river 828,; !
Together with Mr. McMillin he lias
got an appropriation of 85,000 for the
improvement of the Caney Fork, the
survey of which he procured ordered
His bill to repeal the tax on tobacco
iu the hands of the producer is a blow
in the right direction toward wiping
out an odious and unjust law. It has
passed the committee, and is now on
the House calendar.
He has endeavored during his whole
official career to reduce internal reve
nue tax and cut down expenses in that
department, and he has favored every
measure looking to economy in every
jmrt of the government.
He procured amnesty for 700 men
indicted for violation of the revenue
laws, most of whom would otherwise
bave gone to prison, and their families
reduced to want.
His hill to tax all incomes over
$2,000 passed the House by 17 major
ity, but failed for Want of a two-thirds
vote, and is now pending before the
Committee on Ways and Means.
His bill to reduce the pay and med

A Woodbury Sensation.
A few weeks ago an unmarried gen
man, of the legal profession, arrived Ln
Woodbury, and in a short time form
ed a copartnership with one of the lead
ing lawyers in that pleasant little city.
Everything gave promise of a busy
but undisturbed and tranquil life, un
til an interruption of a rather singular
character occurred, which interferrcd
with existing arrangements, and excit
ed niuch comment among the good peo
ple of the county seat of Cannon.
Last Friday a, lady arrived in Mur
frcosboro awl engaging a carriage from
Huberts 5t Oslin, was driven rapidly hi
tho direction of Woodbury. Arriving
at that place, she stopped at the hotel
and made enquiries for the legal gentle
man. He was absent at the moment,
but soon made his appearance oj the
street. Whenthe lady saw him she
rushed towards him, and gave him a
greeting so cordial as to quite dum
fouuder the wandering Woodburians
who witnessed the meeting. The gen
tleman at last got the lady to his office.
It is not necessary to enlarge upon the
scene which ensued, (suffice it to say
that within a few hours the twain were
on their way to Murfreesboro. They
went direct to the depot at this place,
and left for Nashville on the 2:15 Sat
urday morning train. They returned
to Murfreesboro Monday and register
ed at the hotel, but nfter giving some
instructions at the express office, they
went back to Nashville.
Various statements explanatory of
these movements have been made. One
is that the lady became infatuated with
the gentleman while he was attending
to some business for her in Ellsworth,
Kansas. The other is that by means
of a newspaper advertisement, the two
became correspondents, passing within
the period of ten months no less than
CG5 letters and 40 telegraphic messa
ges. The lady is said to reside near
Memphis, aud has property.
It is understood that there is nothing
criminal in the affair, but that it is one
of the many romances in real life w hich
have given rise to the apothegm, "Truth
is stranger than fiction." Mmfreesboro

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of
vegetable alteratives Stillingia, Man
drake, Yellow Dock with the Iodides
of Potassium and Iron, and is the moat
efficacious medicine vet known for
the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully com
bined, that the fu.il alterative enect ol
each is assured, and while' it is so niilc
as to be harmless even to children, it ii
still so effectual as to purge out from th
system those impurities and corruptions
which develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from ita cures, aud the confidence which
prominent physicians all over the coua
try repose in" it, prove their experience
of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues have
accumulated, and are constantly being
received, and as many of these cases are
publicly known, they furnish convincing
evidence of the superiority o this Sar
saparilla over every other alterative
medicine. So generally is its superi
ority to any other medicine know n, that
we need do no more than to assure the
public that the lest qualities it has ever
jxjssessea are strictly maintainea.
