GEEEXW00D CEMETERY. "
Dedication and Sale of Lots.
Last Saturday was the day set apart
for the dedication and sale of lota at
Greenwood Cemetery. Our citizens
generally were in " a melting mood,"
therefore the crowd in attendance was
not so large as we expected, consider
ing the programme and general arrange
ments for this important occasion,
nevertheless, about five hundred peo
ple evinced their interest by their at
tendance. About 9 o'clock, the Inde
pendent Order of Odd Fellows and
Knights Templar, in respectable num
bers, made their appearance at the
designated point of starting and took
up their line of march for the Ceme
tery grounds, followed by citizens on
horse-back and in various kinds of
vehicles, and arrived at the Cemetery
about 10 o'clock. Here in a shady
grove to the right, was an impromptu
stand and a few seats, also a supply of
ice water, for the accommodation of
speakers and audience.
Immediately after arriving at the
grounds, the Odd Fellows formed a
circle in the central plat 'and performed
their dedication ceremony in an im
pressive manner. The part assigned
Dr. C. W. Beaumont, that of reading
the dedication service, was admirably
done. He is one of the best readers
we have his articulation was clear
and distinct, so that every word of the
beautiful ceremony could be under
stood by all present. Deputy Grand
Master, John Young, then delivered a
few well spoken words, when Rev. B. M.
Taylor closed with prayer. "
The Knights Templar, under com
mand of Sir Knight Crusman, then
proceeded with their beautiful dedica
tion service, opening with prayer, by
Rev. B. M. Taylor. Rev. A. D. Sears,
was the spokesman who delivered his
part in such manner as to create a pro
found feeling of respect for the man
and the order he represented. Then
followed some excellent singing, to be
done in the open air, when Rev. J. B.
McFerrin concluded these services
with the benediction.
The audience then repaired to the
grove to hear the speaking. Hon. G.
A'. Henry then appeared upon the
stand his manly form and dignified
address, having lost nothing from age
and delivered a short, but eloquent
address, commanding, as he always
does, the wrapt attention and respect
of all who heard him.
Rev. J. B. West, D. D., then fol
lowed in an address of about thirty
five minutes, which was replete with the
choicest diction. His touchingly beau
tiful sentiments, so well expressed,
found a lodgment in every heart.
John F. House, Esq., brought up
the reserve. His speech was short,
but eloquent and appropriate, conclud
ing with a part of the beautiful poem
of " June," by Bryant, which, put the
crowd in a good trim for spirited bid
ding. The speaking over, the crowd enter
ed the Cemetery grounds, where. Col.
Leonard soon disposed of seventy
seven lots, at from 25 to 47 cents per
square foot, for front lots the pur
chaser being allowed to take the rear
lots at the minimum price of 20 cents
per square foot. The number of lots
sold realized $ C,3S3 50.
The- stockholders then presented
Col. Leonard with lots of his own
choosing, for his unselfish liberality in
making the sales without charging for
There are yet a great ouinber of lots
to be disposed of, equally as well lo
cated as any that were sold, which may
be obtained at a reasonable price by ap
plication to the public spirited gentle
men who have control of them. It is
unnecessary to speak of the many ad
vantages in having a lot in "Green
wood," as all are conversant with the
facts. We trust that the company
may very soon realise ample funds
to put this beautiful resting place for
our dead upon a basis enduring as

HEALTH OF THE CITY. ,
It is no less the duty of the press to
contradict and expose false rumors,
than to warn the public against the
risks of exposure in the midst cf viru
lent epidemics. And since the im
pression has been falsely made upon
the surrounding country that Clarks
ville is being ravaged by cholera, we
publish to-day, all that we have been
able to learn in reference to the exis
tence of that disease, in this place.
As Clarksville has occasionally been
scourged by cholera as often in fact,.
as it it has visited this country it
seems to be taken for granted that it
cannot escape, when other localities
are suffering from that malady. Dur
ing its former visits, the fact was clear
ly developed, that its victims were
among those who used spring water
the exceptions being those who were
prepared for its attack by gross impru
dence in eating and drinking. Its ex
emption this season, so remarkably fit
ted to the production and spread of ep
idemics, we ascribe to two leading
causes the almost universal use of
cistern water and the location of the
town, which is so self-draining, that
the heavy rains which induce sickness
in other localities serve to cleanse the
streets and lots and purifiy the atmosphere.-
Consequently the health of our
town was never better at this season,
and is remarkable in view of the unfa
vorable and unusual character of the
past winter and spring.
Don't understand us as saying that
there is, and iias been, no sickness
here. There has been an unusual pre
disposition to bowel affections and the
use of early fruits and vegetables has
developed cases of cholera-morbus to
an unusual extent, and have been fatal
in some instances but such have not
been reported to us. At this time the
tendency is to flux rather than cholera,
though we have heard of no case of
the former that has progressed beyond
the premonitory symptoms. If there
is cholera here, we don't know it, if
there were, we would not hesitate to say
We give below all the cases we have
any reliable information about having
any symptoms of cholera:
Mr. Henry Wall, who resided at the
ferry three miles south of the city, left
home last Saturday evening, his bowels
somewhat disordered, he travelled for
sometime through the hot sun, stopped
at Mr. Charles Merri wether's and drank
freely of ice water, then proceeded to
Mr. Jo. Hatcher's, near Trenton, Ky.,
and died next day.
Jo. Martin, col'd, who lived near
Steel's Station, in this county, was cut
ting wheat last Friday week, dnd was,
as it is termed, running a race with the
other harvesters, got overheated, eat a
lot of plums, was taken sick at 2 o'clock
Saturday morning, and died about 10
o'clock same evening.
Last Tuesday morning three men ar
rived at the passenger depot, upon the
construction train, to get their pay Mr.
Osburn, the fireman, and two negroes.
It is reported that they indulged in
eating oysters and drinking whisky to
excess, which produced coholcra-mor-bus
or symptoms of cholera. The
white man, Mr. Osburn, was sent to
his home at Erin, and has since died.
The negroes under treatment of Dr.
J ohnston, one is recovering, and the
other died Thursday night.
Another negro man named Patrick
Bell, cook on the work train, was taken
sick at Budd's Creek bridge, and
brought here late Thursday evening,
and died that night.
Dr. Greenfield has a patient, a negro
man, who was brought here on the
train, who was reported to have chole
ra. Dr G. pronounces the disease a
clearly marked case of congestive fe
ver, and the prospects, (up to this writ
ing. Thursday) were that he would
At Palmyra, on the 20th inst., two
deaths occured Miss Pattie Eldridge,
daughter of Dr. Eldrjdge, and Mrs.
Adaline Ramey, relict of the late Ab
solem Ramey, and their disease was
pronounced cholera." Both died in a
few hours after being attacked.
Whether these cases were cholera,
we cannot state, as we have no state
ments concerning them from the physi
cians attending them

died, as we learn, last Saturday. He

point of view, is sought after by our
enterprising business men in every de
