3iEW YEAE SALUTATION.
This being our fir-st issue in the new
year, and eorif-idering the changes and
improvement which we have success
fully consummated, it maybe proper to
present to. our readers a prospective
view of the course which we mean to
pursue. The iolitics of the Ciibomcml,
and the maturely formed and consis
teut'y adhered to opinions and f-enti
nientrf of its political editor, are well
known and thoroughly understood
Indeed, f o generally has this depart
ment of our paper been appreciated,
that its leading articles have very' fre
quently been copied by various news
pajers of high character, not only in
this State, but also in distant parts,
and even in the London Times. The
name of our political editor is a Buf-
ficent guaranty of the soundness of
the Chronicle's political faith. And
it will be in icrfoct accordance with
his views, that the measures, of which
we aro about to Fpeak, will be advoca
ted There, though not belonging to
the domain of partizan politics, that is,
not considered litical in the usual
acceptation of that word, are neverthe
less matters in which our readers have
an interest of vital importance.
. Clarksville hi the natural commer
cial center of a large extent of country
in this State and in Kentucky, rich in
agricultural resources and posseted of
the most admirable facilities for man
ufactures and trade. AVhatever is ad
vantageous to this city must also pro
mote the welfare of this extensive, fer-
tile and highly favored region. The
interests of the city aud of the sur
rounding country are mutual and recip
rocal. If more abundant crops are
raised in the country, the city, as a
mart for the increased products, has a
larger volume of trade. If more nu
merous aud larger manufactories are
established in the city, there will be a
better market for all kinds of country
produce. The bounds of our circula
tion, therefore, embrace a' section
wjhowj material interests are undivided,
and all center in this city. And, in
considering tluwe material interests,
reference must be had, not only to our
own particular section, but also to The
relations of this section to the State
at large, to the South and to the Uniou.
Let us notice the points which now
most prominently present themselves.
.1. The very life of business activity
and enterprise in this section dt'iwnds
ujxrn the early establishment of man
u&eturics, to wort rtpThc Toa'P1mI,
supplies of raw materials, with which
nature has so liberally supplied us.
In Clarksville especially the advant
ages for hot blast furnaces naturally
strike the minds of the most thought
less observers with great force. Tan
neries, factories for making agricultur
al implements and many similar enter
prises must be . advocated until they
are put into successful ojxiraiion. We
cannot stand idle aud indifferent,
llctrogrcssion will be ruin ; progress
is our only safety.
2. The present miserable manage
ment of the affairs of the ioor, of
county roads and bridges aud of the
public schools must be reformed, so as
to put them more directly under the
control of those most concerned in
their judicious and eeononiinal admin
istration. Local K-lf-government in
the civil districts must be organized.
Instead of bringing district matters to
the county seat, and putting them un
der the centralized control of the
county court, Ve shall urge that they
' Iks left to the good sense and practical
judgment of the people of each civil
district, or the officers elected by them.
Such a reform would relieve the ieo
ple from much of their heavy burden of
taxation, us well us put an end to
the farcical absurdities so often or
iK'trnted in our comity courts. Farces
they are, indeed ; but farces for which
ii tax laden jwople pay entirely two
11. In common with the entire South
this section demands the solution of a
most difficult problem which, the
presence, in the same community, of
two widely different and inharmonious
races inevitably forces upon us. In
its political nsjx'ct the question
takes the shajic of an amalgamation,
(for it can be called nothing else.) to
whii h Northern coercion aims to drive
us. To blend the two races, not only
jiolitically, but socially as well, is now
the design of certain polit ieians at the
North. As ft jtolitical question this
infamous measure will le procv!y dis
cussed, as heretofore, by the. political
editor in his own department of this
paer. But thi matter also concerns
the material " interests of the country
generally; and will be u;--usmi1 apart
i'roi!! its political significance. The
philosophy of hitor.V and the powerful
logic of facts ami the cxcrietici'ol'ni:;n
kind will be found 'f some value in
settling this question, as well as the
platforms and dogmas of contending
parties, it will le seen, ix rhaps. that
kindness to bo-a races, and tlu salva
tion aud happiness of each, ucm.iud
that they be peaceably separated ; that
the voluutary t'Arhrratioii of the i:e
cries ami their settlement in African
colonies will present a happy. juvu-eful
and profitable solution to this pr.-blom.

s pajHT is more thorouly penned
than, perhaps, uvy other reading mat

motely indelicate, which will cause the

We return most hearty thai. is to
our patriots for their kind encourage
ment and friendliness to the Chroni
cle in the past. It will be our aim to
deserve a continuance of public favor
and support. And it is worthy of con
sideration that our prosperity depends
upon the general welfare of our read
era. If they succeed and flourish, our
interests will be advanced in like pro
portion. The interdependence of a
public journal and the people who read
it, is of thq closest and most vital na
ture. Therefore, we sincerely wish

Oci new power press was put up
this week and thoroughly adjusted by
Mr. Eisenmenger, of the Cincinnati
Typo Foundry. It works splendidly
in every refpect, and i3 a beautiful
piece of machinery. Its weight is
about 800G pounds. This press is ea
pabkt of making one thousand im
pression per hour. Wc wish to say,
however, that printing this issue of our
paper upon an entirely new press was
something like a trial trip on a new
(steamboat. It was ncecs?ary to ex
periment a great deal in order to get
everything to work as well as possible.
Subsequent issues of our paper will be
printed much better than the present
Personal. We have been request
ed to give a word of personal expla
nation for the benefit of visitors to
McCormac's photographic gallery.
Upon entering the reception room
most persons are stiu'.-k with the
grandeur alid majesty displayed in
every feature of a full length picture,
which one might take to be of some
grand, old military hero. The cos
tume is military, and the attitude that
eff one of those chivalric warriors of
the olden times. The expression of
the face indicates a soul of dauntless
courage and a mind of imperial digni
ty. Many have asked whether it was
the picture of the Duke of Welling
ton, Charles the Great, or Julius
Cesar ; some have wanted to know if
it was not a photographic copy of some
portrait of Richard Ceeur de Lion by
one of the old masters ; while others,
recognizingthe uniform of the Knights
Templar in this picture, have been
puzzled to understand how so modern
a dress could have been worn by one
who must have lived in the feudal age,
for fo much chivalry has never been
seen depicted in the countenance of
any ofonr modern heroes. To these
one and all, we are requested to say that
it is a picture of our friend, Saurl
Native Wine. After all the eggs
we had procured for an egg-nogg for
Christmas had frozen, we were sorely
perplexed to know wltat we should do
for something exhilerating during the
holidays, when our amiable lady-friend,
Mrs. Goodlette Brown came to our re '
lief and solved the vexed problem 'oy
sending us two bottles of grape wine,
one made of the Isabella and the other
the Catawba grape. We do not claim
to be a judge of the fluid extract, but
we are confident that we know when
anything suits our taste, and this wine
made by Mrs. 15. appeared to be ex
actly what our taste called for. We
pronounce it NoTTTTrnd nu mirrfeokc.

Remarkable pipes were those two
presented to uslyMr.GoodlettBrown
last week. Many have been the guess
es made as to the material ot which
they were composed. Rut he would
be able to see through a half dozen
mill-stones, who could name the sub-
t.inee out of which they were made.
even if he were given a hundred
chances to guess it. They are neat,
pretty specimens of handicraft; and
each was made out of a quince dried on
the tree. Oncwouldhavebecnasaptto
suppose they were made of condensed,
solidified buttermilk, as to have im
acined that they were manufactured
out of any kind of dried fruit. They
are so firm and solid in their appear
ance that many persons have been sure
that they were, made out of some kind
of stone. They can be seen at the
As citizens of Clarksville we are al
ways proud and happy to notice home
enterprises. True patriotism shows
itself in striving for the good of one's
town, State-or nation. Our fellow
citizen, Mr. Hood, in his successful
efforts to introduce the culture of the
grape and the manufacture of wine in
this section, deserves the praise and
thanks of our entire community.
The nse of good, wholesome wine, in
stead of the deleterious compound
which we call whiskey, would be a
most desirable reform. And no coun
try in the world is better adapted to
grape culture than this part of Ten
nessee. And, since it is an indisputa
ble fact that, in all countries where the
vine is cultivated and wine manufac
tured on a large scale, the use of
whiskey, brandy and rum decreases,
and consequently drunkenness is di
minished. For even the habitual use
of wine does not create that madden
ing thirst for stimulants, which the oe-ca-ional
drinking of whiskey and
other fierx liquors generally produces.

15 EXCELLENT CITIZEN GOXE.
At half past five o'clock, Saturday
morning, Dee. 28th, that estimable
man and highly useful citizen, Mr.
Peter Peacher breathed his last. lie
was seventy years of age when he died,
having lived a life of well directed
energy and enterprise, strict integrity
and great useful ness. lie was possessed
of a noble courage and equanimity
which misfortune could not shake. lie
was the founder of Peacher Mills, in
this county, consisting of flouring
and woolen mills on an extensive scale,
which have given employment to many
hands, and built up -quite a village
He took a deep interest in all enter
prises which had for their object the
building up and improving of our
country. He was a public spirited
man, and labored faithfully and ener
getically for the general prosperity of
the community in which he lived.
Mr. Peacher was a Mason, a member,
and the treasurer at the time of his
death, of John Hart Lodge, No. 217,
at Peather's Mills. The members of
that lodge and the fraternity in Clarks
ville united in performing the funeral
rites at his grave, in the burial-place
of the family, where li3 was interred
on Monday last. He has finished
and well performed the work to which
he was appointed on earth, and has
now gone to the temple not made with
hands, but fashioned and perfected by
the Grand Master above, ne has
been called from earthly labor to
heavenly refreshments. So mote it be.
A good opportunity has been lost to
Clarksville and gained to Chattanooga
simply on account of a shameful want
of enterprise in this city. We learn
through a private letter to Mr. L.
Bloch, who kindly furnished us the
information, that Maj. Adolph Hun
nerwadcl, of Switzerland, is about to
establish a cotton factory in Chatta
nooga. The company consists of Maj.
nunnerwadel, Ruchs of Chattanooga,
Warner of Nashville, and Hug of Zu
rich, Switzerland, with Messrs. Hun
nerwadel and Hug as directors. They
have purchased the machinery of a
factory formerly operated at Cuthbert,
Ga., and will move it to Chattanooga.
Maj. Uunnerwadel was here last sum
mer, and would have located his fac
tory in this city, but was discouraged
from the undertaking by the apathy
and indifference of our people. The
busy looms and spindles of ha "Cnatat
nooga Spinning Weaving Company,"
(as the firm is styled,) will give busi
ness life and activity to another city
and not to our own. The fault lies at
j our own doors, good people of Clarks
We have received from Messrs.
Owen & Moore,: the Eclectic Maga
zine and Scribner's Monthly for Jan

author, through Messrs Owen & Moore,

Invention by a Citizen of ClarksTllle.
Sir. J. II. Pearce, operator at the W. U, of
fice in tnis city, Is the author of an inven
tion by means of which any office on a tele
graph line can awake the operator at any
other office or station, at any moment,' and
as often as desired, by putting in motion a
suitable alarm Instrument, without, at the
same time, starting the alarm at any lOther
office than the one wanted. He claims that
It is adaptable to the various requirements
of different lines, such as the greater or less
number of offices on a line, and whether a
local circuit is used or not. He is satisfied
that It is perfectly reliable at all times, un
less the wires themselves are out of order.
It does not prevent lines using it from being
worked as ordinarily for commercial or mil
road business. The machinery can be dis
connected and the magnet used as regular
Morse instruments. The cost of machinery
will not much exceed that of good Morse
sets. . - -
It is well known that any manipulation
of a telegraphic circuit effects all the in
struments on the line at the same instant,
and if the alarms were attached, would
sound them altogether. To avoid this, and
alarm only the offlce wanted, Is accomplish
ed by this invention. It will enable rail
roads to reduce their force of night operators,
since the day operators can be av akened

and patient labor on his invention, and we

securing its introduction into general nse.
