NASHVILLE MARKET REPORT.
Corrected from the Nashville Amtricun
every Thursday eveniuc.
The tone of the general market to
day was unusually active. A spirit
of animation seemed to iiervade all
departments of trade and cheerfulness
ruled all round. Collections are hold
ing up remarkably well. The only
unfavorable feature in the outlook is
the advanced state of the wheat crop,
which should it be destroyed by
freezes later on, will set trade back
considerably and shorten up summer
collections. Through fear of this,
country merchants keep on the con
servative side, and buy nothing but
absolute wants. Should nothing of
that sort happen, however, the latter
part of the spring trade will be better
than the first. Coffee is very firm;
sugar firm. Provisions steady with
good inquiry. liens are dull, chick -fiis
steady. Eggs are firm at !) cents,
lluttor dull. Corn is in good South
em request. Seed oats are in good de
mand, as are also seed potatoes.
Seeds are quiet. An extra article of
No. 2 winter wheat will bring outside
figures. The demand for flour is
good, especially for the better grades.

General Information About this Thriv
This thriving little town, which is
composed of about 1,000 population,
Is thirty-six miles from Lebanon and
twenty miles from McMinnville.
While Watertown, seventeen miles
distant, is the nearest railroad sta
tion, there is a daily stage between
here and there, which accommodates
the traveling public on that, route.
The driver, Mr. Ike Borman, is ever
on the alert to make his passengers
as comfortable as though they were
riding in a Pullman sleeper. Also,
between here and McMinnville is a
tri-weekly conveyance and it has a
splendid run of passengers.
This is one of the best counties in
the Commonwealth of Tenneasee,
and we believe its wealth to bo as
equally distributed as any county
under the canopy of Heaven. The
land is comparatively rich, and if
properly cultivated, yields good re
sults. Small fruits, such as grapes,
strawberries, blackberries, and vege
tables of all kinds grw very luxuri
ant. We could write much more
about thn town and county, but this
will suffice as an eye-opener to a
large number of people, and all
Smithville asks, Is "to come and see
The morals of Smithville are on an
average with any in this State or any
other State, and the Pure Fountain
College deserves great credit for its
part in placing the moral3 of Smith
ville above common average. There
are no saloons here and the "jug bus
iness" is very small and on the de
crease. The drug stores are not al
lowed to sell liquor and the prohibi
tion law is well enforced.
The society of Smithville is of a
most social nature, and a stranger
will receive a welcome that at
once makes him at home. Tennes
see is noted for her hospitality, and
this particular section lacks nothing
in this part of its inducements to peo
ple who love good company. If you
have a desire to enter good society,
you need not stand out in the cold
because you have nothing but hones
ty and uprightness to recommend
The town is prosperous; there is
but one vacant house and new ones
are continually being erected. Some
very handsome residences are to be
seen here. There are two hotels
where the weary traveler is taken
care of. Smithville has a number of
lawyers, a few physicians, some min
isters and other professional men, and
In fact, everything that t'oes in the
make-up of a first-class town.
The usual number of business houses
can bo found here, representing all
lines. The business men are live,
energetic, accommodating, honest,
and, in fact, a genial class of men.
PURE FOUNTAIN COLLEGE.
It fs useless to attempt to mention
the irood this institution has done
Smithville. It has at present about
one hundred and twenty-five pupils
enrolled, and a goodly number of
these are boarding students.
The college has a most thorough
and competent faculty, and its suc
cess under their skilful management
has been quite marked.

Washington, 1). C. Feb. 17, 185)0.
Mr. Harrison hs allowed himself
to lie beguiled by the soft-speaking
office-seekers into believing that he
might again be the candidate of his
party in 185)2. This is daily becom
ing more apparent and accounts for
many seemingly queer appointments.
Ills Idea is to appoint only Harrison
men, and to carry it out he has al
ready offended nearly every leading
man in his party. It was only a few
days since he refused to appoint a rel
ative of Secretary Blaine postmaster
of a Pennsylvania town, notwithstan
ding the fact that Mr Blaine had per
sonally asked that the appointment
be made. This bit of wild lunacy,
for it can be called nothing else, on
the part of Mr Harrison furnishes lots
of fun for the politicians here. Mc
Ginty has more show of being nom
inated by the republicans in 185)2 than
Mr Harrison has.
The democratic Congressional
Campaign committee is now fully or
ganized for business and in a few
days hpadquarters will be opened in
this city and the machinery started
in motion to capture the next House
The gag rules under which the

If the Senate committee on Privi
leges and Elections decide the Mon
tana cases, which were heard Satur
day, on the law and the evidences,
the democrats will soon have two
more Senators. At any rate it is hard
ly possible in view of the poor show
ing made by the republican contes
tants that the majority will have the
effrontery to report in favor of seat
ing them. The report will be made
Politics are to be shelved this week
in the House, and the World's Fair
question disposed of. The com
mittee has reported two bills, one lor
holding the fair at New York, Chica
go or St. Louis, and the other at
Washington. Tomorrow discussion is
to begin, and if possible the final vote
is to be taken Friday or. Saturday.
The fight will be short but decidedly
interesting, as all of the cities have
lots of friends on the ground whoop,
ing things up.
The Blair educational bill is the
foot-ball of the Senate. It was kick
ed aside last week to pass the bill es
tablishing a Territorial government
in Oklahoma, but will bob up serene
ly this week as unfinished business.
A vote may be reached on it this
week, but it is somewhat doubtful.
Mr. Harrison will have a somewhat
delicate duty to perform if a bill
which passed the Senate shall get
through the House. It appropriates
$2,")00 to pay legal fees to the firm of
Porter, Harrison, and Fishback, n
firm of which Mr. Harrison was a
member. The question is will he
sign a bill appropriating mon.-y for
his own benefit, or will he let it be
come a law without signing it? It's
dollars to brass buttons that he don't
ihe republicans are not having
smooth sailing in the preparation of
a new tariff bill. They started out
with the intention of reporting the
bill to the House by the first of Feb
ruary, now they say they hope to
have it ready by the first of March
The whole truth of the matter is the
tariff retorm idea is spreading so
rapidly that it is getting 'among the
republicans, and unless the Ways and
Means committee report a very dif
ferent bill from what Chairman Mo
Kinley started out to make, it wil
never be passed by the House. The
new rules are pretly fur reaching but
they cannot accomplish everything
