i New Fxrbv. On last Monday, the
County Court granted Mr. Wm. Ed
niondson the right to put in a ferry
boat on the Cumberland river, between
Searcy's and the Seven mile ferry, and
also to open a road to the fame. The
road runs near the residence of Mr.
W. M. Stewart and through the Mc
Reynold's bottom, crossing the river
about three-fourths of a mile below
the Seven Mile Island. From the
river on the south side, there is a grad
ual ascent leading to the top of the
ridge, from which point a ridge routs
may be taken in almost any direction,
avoiding all heavy hills. This road,
when opened, will prove a great con
venience to the South-siders, particu
larly in delivering their tobacco during
the winter reason, as the river can be
crossed at this point when so high as
to make it impossible to cross it any
where else in this vicinity.

To the Enterprising. A gentle
man of Nashville, who owns a number
of lots in this city, requests us to Bay
that he will donate the ground to-any
one who will erect thereon suitable
buildings for the manufacture of agri
cultural implements or a furniture fac
tory, or both combined. He would be
glad to confer with parties desiring to
engage in manufacturing upon this
subject With this liberal proposition,
in connection with the fact that our
country abounds with suitable timber
in large quanties, and advantages
in respect to location, etc., we see no
reason why this proposition should npt
be entertained at once.
Revival. About two weeks ago
a protracted meeting was commenced in
Springfield, Tenn., by Rev. Mr. Penick,
of the Cumberland Presbyterian
church, assisted by Rev. B. M. Tay
lor, of this city. These- brethren ex
tended an invitation to Rev. G. W.
Fetherston of the Baptist church, and
Rev. G. P. Jackson, of the M. E.
church, which was accepted, and a
glorious union meeting was the conse
quence. So great was the interest
manifested, that on last Thursday the
court adjourned and business men
closed their doors to attend the meet
ing. The result was that fifty-two
persons professed religion, half of the
number being heads of families of the
most influential citizens of the place.

CLARKSVILLE TOBACCO MARKET.
The market shows an advance of from
4 to lie per pound, on good and fine leal.
Lugs and low leaf, though not quotably
higher, are taken much more readily than
heretofore. We expect yet fuller prices
for good tobacco, such as Is known as
Kentucky Tobacco," owing to the large
amount of this character required to fill
the French and Italian contracts. Ship
ments now coming to this market, show
a commendable improvement In the order
and handling, which is fully appreciated
by our board of buyers as manifested by
the advanced price paid.
