ME FIREMEX'S A5XI YERSAIt Y.
On Friday night of last week, the
Firemen of our city celebrated the
first anniversary of the organitation
of the Fire Department, and it was an
occasion long to be remembered with
pride, not only by the members, but
by the entire community.
" According to the programme, at half
past seven the companies assembled at
the head of the square.

boqucts, the " bright work " so highly
polished as to reflect all surrounding
objects and was indeed " a thing of

were beautifully decorated with cedar
and flowers, and just under the head
light had a beautiful wreath, enclosing
the motto of the company: "Our
Lives We Risk, Our Friends' Proper
ty to Save."
The entire apparatus of the Depart
mentshowsthat care and attention has
been constantly bestowed upon it,
everything being in most perfect order,
and ready for use at a moments notice.
At a quarter pa3t eight the proces
sion, headed by the Clarksville Cornet
Band, moved up Franklin street, the
torches lighting up the way, and after
parading the principal streets, reached
which were brilliantly and beautifully
illuminated with Chinese lanterns, and
where an immense crowd had already
assembled. Here the companies were
dismissed, and the members at once
repaired to the homes of their " ladies
fair," and soon returned, each bringing
with him as many ladies as he pleased.
The display of

and the members of the Department
and their guests repaired to the spaci
ous dining hall of the Academy, where
Messrs. Ligon & Ely had prepared a
most elegant Ice Cream Supper, and
for some time all devoted themselves
to satisfying the " demands of the in
After supper all returned to the yard,
where they were free to enjoy them
selves in such manner as best suited
their individual tastes, and the crowd
lingered until a late hour, when all re
turned to their homes, each expressing
the utmost satisfaction with the entire
proceedings of the evening.
Altogether it was one of the most
enjoyable occasions at which we have
been present, and we trust that each
and all of our gallant Firemen may be
here to participate in many happy re
turn? of the Anniversary op the
Clarksville Fire Department.
Whereas, there seems little proba
bility of the construction of a railroad,
just now, to or from this place ; and
whereas, turnpikes have proven to be
more beneficial to the town than other
roads yet built; therefore resolved
that the town and county should in
deavor to extend the Charlotte pike
ten or fifteen miles, on the South Side.
A ferry will soon be established near
the foot of seven-mile island, to which
a fair grade may be obtained, on this
side, and on the other, there is a mod
erate ascent to a summit level which is
almost a natural grade, towards Dick
son county, for- about fifteen miles.
The South Side needs such an improve
ment, and Clarksville needs the in
creased trade it would invite, and the
whole county needs the additional
wealth and population, that are the
certain results-of every such commer
cial facility. The increased and varied
productions consequent upon the im
provement would, in a short time,
more than pay the cost of the road,
and a single tollgate suffice to keep it
We submit the proposition to all
whom it may concern, with a hope
that it may lead to the accomplishment
of a work fully within the mens of
town and county, and than which none
of similar magnitude will pay better.
The Chronicle, to-day, furnishes
its numerous and intelligent readers
with eighteen columns reading matter,
such as leading political and commer
cial editorials, local news items, a va
riety of miscellaneous reading, etc.,
althogether, we think, presenting an
interesting and readable paper. Here
tofore, the size of our paper, and the
large advertising custom we received,
prevented the publication of that mat
ter for the general reader that we de
sired to furnish. Since our enlarge
ment, this year, however, we have
been enabled to give a greater variety
and quantity of reading matter, and
have the satisfaction of knowing that
it is fully appreciated by our patrons.
As a general thing we receive the kind
est expression from the masses, in re
turn for which it shall be our earnest
endeavor to retain and enhance, if pos
sible, their appreciation of our efforts,
by adding, from time to time, any im
provement in the make-up of our pajr.
We are pained toannouce the death
of Rolfe Elridge, Esq., which occurred .
at Palmyra, on the 17th inst., of chole
ra morbus. He was an honest, intelli
gent gentleman, and one of the mag
istrates of the county at the time of
his death. He will be sadly missed by
the community in which he lived.
Several deaths have occurred on the
south side of Cumltcrland river, at the
mouth of Barton's Creek, about 18
miles from this city, from cholera mor
bus. The heavy fall of rain on the 13th
and 14th insL, created such a rise in
Rolling Pork river, about forty miles
this side of Louisville., that the rail
road bridge across that stream was
swept away. This caused a suspen
sion of freight trains, but arrangements
were immediately made to transfer
passengers, so that little detention was
cased to passenger trains.
Since penning the above, we learn
from Mr. R. Meek, that a bridge will
be completed to-day to allow the regu
lar passing of trains.
About one hundred and fifty new
money-orders offices will be establish
ed on July 1.
Dedication and Sale of Lots.
This morning, at 10 o'clock, the ded
ication of lots in Greenwood Cemetery
will take place. Immediately after
the dedication addresses will be deliv
ered, then follows the sale of lots. We
would urgently suggest that our citi
zens generally turn out and spend this
one day in making arrangements to es
tablish this beautiful resting place for
the dead upon a substantial basis. - Let
Buch an interest in this praise
worthy object be exhibited to-day, as
will in after years reflect credit upon
people and. city. To remember and
care for our beloved dead should not
only be a sad pleasure but a solemn
duty. Those having the matter in
hand have gone to much trouble to
present a programme that will be in
teresting to all who witness it The
following is the
programme fob the day.
The procession will form at 9 o'clock,

3. Masonic Order.

To Business Men. The Cheoni
cle now circulatessthrough all the ad
jacent country which, in a commercial
point of view, is sought after by our
enterprising business men in every de
partment of trade. As an advertising
medium it presents all the advantages
and facilities afforded by any publica
tion that has the interest and welfare
of our people at heart Bear this fact
in mind when you wish to advertise
your wares and merchandise, and also
remember that a business man cannot
lose anything by constantly reminding
the people that he has goods to sell. To
inform buyers where they can obtain
their supplies is an accommodation to
them as well as beneficial to the seller.
The benefits conferred ate mutual.
Persistent, judicious advertising al
ways has and will continue to pay, as
the experience of the best business
men in the country fully verifies. Of
course we seek to benefit the press in
what we say, but selfishness alone does
not prompt us, in carrying out this
suggestion mutual benefit accrues to
. A Suggestion. Our city has un
dergone much expense, at various
times, to drain that portion of Frank
lin street from the court house to
Crusman's corner, and every effort has
proved a failure. Workmen are at
present engaged in trying to accom
plish this desirable object, but it
strikes us that unless some change is
made it will prove, in the end, another
failure not because of any lack of in
formation or discharge of duty upon
the part of the workmen, but from
the nlan proposed for the purpose
Suppose, in connection with what is
being done, a sewer is constructed, to
commence at Capt Crusman's corner
and continued in a straight line to
Spring street, do not our city officials
think it would be an effective mode of
draining our mostly used thoroughfare,
We merely offer this as a suggestion
for them to consider for although it'
would cost a few more dollars at pres
ent, jet, in the end, it would, in our
opinion, be the cheapest, as we are
convinced that it would be permanent
and more conducive to health.

Crystal Fountain. There is on
exhibition in the parlor of the South
ern Hotel the neatest piece of mech
anism we ever saw. It is called the
Crystal Fountain. A. parlor seems
to be a singular place for a fountain to
be at work in, yet such is the case ;
and so perfect is the construction that
not one drop of water falls upon the
carpet. The Crystal Fountain is de
signed ns an ornament for drug stores,
fancy stores, bar-rooms and parlors,
and is sure to attract the admiration and
excite the astonishment of all who sea
it We know nothing more exquis
itely beautiful, or better suited as an
ornament Its ever flowing streams of
air and water, its crystal veins, spark
ling amid light and shadow, and its in
viting basin of shell, coral and moss,
are a perpetual delight to the eye. - Mr,
Magee is in the city stopping at the
Southern Hotel, and is prepared .to
dispose of county and city rights to
sell the fountain. There is a fortune
in store for some enterprising man.

CLARKSVILLE TOBACCO MARKET.
The market for all grades of Tobacco is
ruling very steady this week, with no va
riation in prices. In consequence of the
continued and almost incessant rains, the
crop prospects are not very nattering, and
farmers do not expect a full crop of Tobac
co to be planted. This fact will naturally
have its eliect on our market, ana we ex
pect present prices to be fully maintained
inrouguout me season.

They are a mild

ly vegetable, they
contain no mer
cury or mineral

serkras sickness and suffering Is prevented by
their timely ase; and every family should
bave them on hand for their protection and
relief, when required. Long experience has
proved them to be the safest, surest, and
best of all the Pills with which the market
abounds. By their occasional use, the blood
is purified, the corruptions of the system ex
pelled, obstructions removed, and the whole
machinery of life restored to its healthy activ
ity. Internal organs which become elofsred -and
sluggish are cleansed by Aytr'a Pillm,
and stimulated into action. Thus incipient
disease is changed Into health, the value of
which change, when reckoned on the vast
multitudes who enjoy it, can hardly be com
puted. Their sugar-coating make them
pleasant to take, and preserves their virtue
unimpaired for any length of time, so that
they are ever fresh, and perfectly reliable.
Altbonrh searching, they are mild, and oper- '
ate without disturbance to the constitution er
diet or occupation.
Full directions are given on the wrapper to
each box, bow to use them as a Family Physic,
and for the following complaints, which toes
