The Mayor's proclamation requiring

Moore, have built a warehouse, 20 by

TRIP TO THE COUXTBY.
Having been "under the weather"
for several months, and being like the
battle flag of the lost cause, somewhat
tattered and torn, we concluded that a
little recreation and snuffing the pure,
country air would invigorate our shat
tered nervous system, caused by being
pent up during the dreary winter and
epring, we secured one of Caldwell &
Sheltou's best rig and made our way,
on the 2Cth tilt, to the classic shores
to spend a short time with some of oar
old and time-tried friends of that sec
tion. We made the hospitable home
of W. Bagwell, Esq., our
who received us kindly, and placed a
horse, gun and ammunition at our
command, and left us free to roam at
Among the neighbors, we next paid
our respects to Maj. P. Bagwell, under
whose hospitable roof and whose in
teresting and intelligent household
we have spent many happy hours in
ante-bellum days. Although the war
took from them many conveniences
and comforts, it left that innate kind
ness, and unselfish hospitality for
which they have ever been proverbial.
Our next visit was to
where our country cousin J. Z. Grant,
(which, but for extreme modesty we
would say, is like the name hereabouts,
quite clever and handsome,) keeps a
good stock of dry goods, groceries, etc.
for the benefit of that neighborhood.
We wish it distinctly understood that
our parenthesis above of cleverness
and good looks does not mean to apply
to the would-be monarch who reigns
over the destinies of his betters at
the white house.
We next went down and then up the
creek to the residence of Uncle Ben.
Hewitt, known throughout this coun
try for his christian integrity and in
defatigable industry. He has already
reached the years usually allot
ted to mortallity, but he still digs
old mother earth who yields him a
comfortable living, which he is ever
willing to share with his friends.
Next, a little below on the creek, we
called on our friend Esquire Fizer and
his estimable lady. We had the pleas
ure of her aequantance when in her
teens, and although time has made
some imprint upon her since girlhood
days, she retains, unimpaired, that na
tive goodness of heart for which she is
so well known. The squire secured
a prise, and from his mode of conduct
ing domestic affairs we are confident
he prises the jewel he weares nearest his
To our young friend, Nick. Parrish,
we are under many obligations for
kindness shown us, and hope he may be
rewarded by securing well, he under

On Saturday, 31st, we attended .
. QUARTERLY MEETING,
at Union School House, better known,
in classical language, as 'Possum Col
lege.. Rev. A. Mizell, presiding elder,
delivered an able and interesting ser
mon, at 11 o'clock, a. M., to a small
but attentive congregation. After the
sermon we remained, as a visitor to
the Stewards' meeting, whose reports
showed the church to be in good con
dition. Bro. Mizell reported that Clif
ton circuit, at Shaw's Cross Roads,
had paid him in full for this confer
ence year. Clifton, in a financial point
of view, is the banner circuit of the
Asbury district, and we hope she may,
in future show a spiritual progress in
keeping with her promptness in finan
After a final adjournment, the 31st,
in company with our old friend, W.
Bagwell, we were invited to dine with
J. W. Wilkerson, whose kind lady
knows how to prepare a feast fit for a
king. After more than satisfying the
inner man with choice viands and de
licacies, we enjoyed a few hours in so
cial converse with this interesting fam
ily and then wended our way back to
headquaters, preparatory to attending
the meeting again on Sabbath.
Sunday morning, June 1st, was ush
ered iu by a bright sun and refreshing
breezes, and at 9 o'clock We were
again in the saddle on our way to
A BAD MISFORTUNE
happened to our friend, John Dickson,
who was in readiness to accompany us
to church. In the act of mounting a
vicious mule, he wasthrown off against
a stake in the ground, and had one of
his ribs broken and another fractured.
He has been very unfortunate recent
ly, as he had not got over the serious
accident which befel him, prior to this,
of having his ankle broken. These,
added to family afflictions, has made
his career for the last few years a sad
one indeed. He has the attention and
sympathy of that entire community.
We passed on to church and found
a large congregation assembled. The
house being small, services were con
ducted in a shady grove on the hill
above the house.
Bro. Mizell preached one of his best
sermon, securing throughout the entire
attention of the congregation. The
best feeling was produced, and an im-
lression created that will ultimate in
good to those who heard his able dis
was then administered, most of the
congregation participating. Here we
met and grasped the baud of many old
friends, our greatest difficulty being,
not as to how we w ere to get dinner,
but how to make a' selection of the
many kind invitations without giving
offence. We here made the acquaint
ance of Rev. W. A. Turner, preacher
in charge, who stands deservedly high
in the estimation of all both as minis
ter and citizen.
Wheat is looking fiuc, and promises
anabuuiant yield. The wet weather,
up to this writing has greatly retarded

to health, we conclude our random
The exercises began Friday the
23rd ult, with the examination in the
Preparatory Department which was
continued through all the Depart
ments, closing on Tuesday. The ex
amination was close and thorough,
giving entire satisfaction to the friends
and patrons of the institution.
THE ART" LEVEE,
on Friday- evening, being a new
feature in Academic exercises, attract
ed a crowd of some eight hundred per
sons whose countenances and lips ex
pressed the pleasure derived from the
brilliancy of the display. The chief at
traction was, of course, the painting,
wax and hair work, etc., executed by the
class under the tuition of Miss Kate
Carney, formerly of Murfreesboro.
The surprising proficiency of the class,
after an instruction of only ten months,
is the best commentary upon the taste
and genius of the pupils and the
skill and industry of the teacher. In
styling this the chief attraction of the
evening, we would, by no means, un
derate the effect of the beautifully dec
orated halls, the tasteful arrangement
of the specimens of art, nor the bril
liant display of beauty and fashion all
blending and harmonizing as a single
picture of rare beauty. Our crowded
columns forbid a detailed account of
all that is worthy of special notice, and
we can do no more than pronounce the
levee a happy success, the works of
art more than a credit to the class, and
the class more than a credit to the
teacher and the institution.
THE COMMENCEMENT SERMON,
on Sunday at eleven, was delivered by
Dr. Summers, of Nashville, and was a
most able and learned discourse, keep

by Dr. Sears, was short but appro
priate and interesting, and was fol
lowed by the m '-
which were read in the order in which
we give them below :
The Salutatory "Genius" by Miss
Sue II. McLean, of this city was a
most excellent one, filled with happy
thoughts, beautifully expressed and
The Latin Salutatory "Roma" by
Miss Mattie A. Hunter, of this county-
was read in an excellent manner, but
having forgotten most of - our Latin,
and not having a lexicon with us, we
are incompetent to testify as to the
matter of it
"Beauty, Wealth and Intellect" by
Miss Pauline Cralle, a very fruitful
subject, was well treated by its author,
and was greatly admired by the audi
ence. "Shoes" by Miss Annie L. Chil-
ders, of Pulaski Tenn. was one of
the finest essays we have ever heard,
showing a versatility of talent which is
rarely met with. Her hearers were at
times amused by the wit therein, and
again moved almost to tears by the sad
thoughts called up as she drew some of
the darker pictures suggested by her
subject. One of the greatest charms
of this essay was in the manner of its
delivery, every sentence being clearly
enunciated, and distinctly heard in all
parts of the hall. We would be glad
to nave the privilege ol publishing this
"Wandering Thoughts" by Miss V.
Alice Moore, of Pulaski, Tenn. was
well written, well read, and highly ap
preciated by the audience.
"Let the Light Enter" by Miss Liz
zie L. Sebree. of Paducah, Ky. was
one of the best essays of the evening,
and Miss Sebree's pleasing manner,
and elegant delivery added much to
"Chronicles" by Miss Bettie II.
Humphreys, of this city was pro
nounced an excellent piece of compo
sition by all who heard it.
"Fireside Angels" by Miss Ruth
B. Wisdom, of this city was a well
chosen and well handled subject, de
livered in a clear and distinct voice,
"Mohainniodanism" by Miss Sallie
A. Moore, of Johnsonville, Tenn.
elicited the praise of all we heard speak
" Demonstrative Affection" by
Miss Jennie B. Stewart, of this
city was an elegantly written essay,
replete with fine thoughts and beauti
"Bells, and Their Association" by
Miss Mollie B. Boone, of Mayfield,
Ky. was praised by all, in regard to
both composition and delivery.
"A Wreath for Eternity" by Miss
Sallie A. Mizell, of this city, was full
of beautiful thoughts and delivered in
such manner as to add effectiveness to
" Lei Lii$ons JJrisies" " Broken
Ties" by Miss Fannie Irwin, of this
city was well read, and we Buppose
well written, but as our French was
neglected in our early youth, we are
not able to state positively.
The Valedictory " Our Alma Ma
ter" by Miss Fannie McCrory, of
Adairville, Ky. was an evidence of
the possession of literary attainments
of a high order. Miss McCrory re
ceived marked attention duringthe
reading of this, and tears were in
many eyes before its close.
Misses Lillie McDermott and Helen
L. Carney, of Murfreesboro, graduated
at the njiddle term, making sixteen
graduates during the past year.
At the closp of the graduating ex
crciaes, Maj, G A. Henry, in behalf of
the donors, presented to Pr, West, an
elegant Settee, from the teachers of
the school; cushioned office chair,
from the pupils in the Primary and
Prepartory Department ; amaguificent
Silver Berry Bowl and Tea Set, from
the Sophomores and Juniors, and a
beautiful Silver Coffee Urn, from the
Graduating Classes. The Major's pre
sentation speech was a happy effort,
full of wit as well as deep feeling,
delivered in a manner that but few
can equal and none surpass.
Dr. West responded in a few re
marks, expressive of his appreciation
of these marks of kindly regard from
those with whont he had been so long
and so pleasantly associated. Though
brief, they were "thoughts that bresthe
and words that burn."
"THE CONCERTO AND FLORi.LIA, ,
Thursday night, which closed the ex
ercises for this term, was a most deci
ded success, delighting every one with
the beautiful scenes presented to th '
eye and the sweet Bounds which fell
upon the ear. We think we may safe
ly say it surpassed any former enter
tainment of its kind at the Academy,
we can bestow no higher praise than
At the close of the Concert, Dr.
Cobb, President of the Board of Trus
tees, made a Bhort speech expressive of
the feelings of appreciation entertain
ed by the audience and by the entire
community towards all connected with
the Academy, and especially toward
Dr. West, and his able corps of assis
tants, who have done so much to make
this Institution an honor to our . city
pride of our citizens.
Dr. West then made a few remarks,
announcing the close of his connection
with the school, and concluded with the
kindest wishes to all.
BET.1. B. WEST, D. D.
With the closing exercises of the
Female Academy, on Thursday even
ing last, ended the connection of Rev.
J. B. West, D. D., with that noble in
stitution. He found it a wreck, at the
close of the- war and, as a labor of love,
undertook its re-establishment His
indomitable energy, sound practical
sense, self-sacrificing patience and de
votion to the cause of education
brought it up to its present high stan
dard as an institution of learning the
equal of any establishment of the kind
hi the whole country. The announce
ment of his withdrawal was received
with regret, not only by his personal
friends, but by all who know him only
through the results of his well direct
ed efforts in the cause of female edu
cation. Dr. West has been signally
successful as an educator, and though
he has encountered many of the un
pleasant trials incident to his position,
he Has borne them with a cheerful
fortitude which not only robbed them
of their sting, but converted them in
to lessons of Christian charity and for
bearance. For seven years, he has
presided over the Academy laboring
faithfully, not for himself, but for
others, and now that a sense of duty
to himself prompts him to retire, he
will carry with him the gratitude and
good wishes of his many pupils and
efficient assistants, as well as the con
fidence and respect of the entire com
munity in, and for, which he has
worked with so much zeal and ability.
And whatever may be his future, we
are confident he will ever recall the
past seven years as not the least useful
and honored portion of a life devoted
to the service of God and to the moral
and intellretual improvement of man.
Though we lose him as a teacher, we
hope to retain him as a citizen whose
pure example, generous nature and
wise precepts cannot fail to produce
good results in any community.
Tobacco Market. Offerings for
the week continue large and sales foot
up nearly 800 hogsheads, at full prices
for good and fine leaf. The decline
in lugs last week, is very nearly re
gained, and prices approximate those
paid two weeks since. Stocks in all
the warehouses are diminishing', 'and
receipts show a slight falling off.
Warehousemen believe the bulk of
the crop to be in, and anticipate small
er sales from this time forward. We
notice a more active movement in the
staple at the seaboard, and are confi
dent that prices here will be fully
maintained during the season.
