X0TES FROM THE SE3I0R LOCAL.
When we left borne on the 25th ulL,
we had but little idea where we would
go or when we -would return. That
morning about noon found us at' the
residence of our cousin, Aquula Urant,
near Parson's Creek, three miles west

Fort Royal. At this point we estab

been kindly furnished conveyance to

be brought about or agricultural pur

We attended a
on the premises of my cousin, Joseph
Grant, a few days since. The boss
workman wasCol. James Lockert, who
fought through the warlike a true sol

of raiting yankees to that of raising
barns and he is as good at the latter
as he was at the former. The timbers
all being framed, the neighbors met
and assisted in the raising, after which
all partook of a sumptuous repast,
prepared in Mrs. Grant's good style.
lTncle Alfred Herring was on hand to
barbecue the mutton for the occasion.
In passing down Tarsou's Creek, a
short distance from where we are stop
ping, maybe seen some of the timbers
of an old grist mill, where, I am in
formed, our worthy townsman, Fetcr
Oncal, (old corner-post,) used to carry
corn to be ground when a very small
boy. I suppose he had the corn in
oue end of the bag and a rock in the
other to strike a balance.
We attended preaching at

On Saturday, tith iust, we attended
SUNDAY SCHOOL CELEBRATION
at Mt. Carmel. This was our first
visit to that hospitable neighborhood.
We arrived at the c hurch about 10
o'clock, and found about -MO persons
already assembled. The pupils of Wil
liams' Chaiel Sunday School united
in this celebration. Seats were ar
ranged in the grove, and a commodi
ous stand, neatly decorated, was there
" for the speakers. Whilst the excellent
hinging, conducted by Mr. Atkins, who
is a fiue singer and teacher, was going
ou, we circulated through the crowd
and grasped the hand of many old and
valued friends. About 11 o'clock,
' Rev. Mr. Turner, read the programme
of the day. The exercises were open
ed with prayer by Rev. Dr. West, after
which Rev. Mr. Turner introduced
our young friend aud townsman, Ar
thur Munford, Esq., who delivered a
short but very appropriate address.
The touihiugly beautiful story, he re
lated of the little girl who was thrown
from a wiudow, by a drunken father,
and made a cripple for life afterwards
taken iu charge by a noble-hearted
lady, a sabbath school teacher, and
taught lessous of wisdom that fitted
her for eternal life, was a spcecji of
itself. This act; on the part of her
leather, showing the blessings that
will accrue to unselfish teachers of
Suuday school childreu, addiug bright
stars in their coronet in the great here
after. Mr. MuuforJ's short address
was well conceived and delivered with
but little embarrassment His voice
was rather low, but to a young man
unused to shaking in the ojicn air,
his resjectful hearers kuew how to
make all due allowance. After a song
Ly the classes, Rev. J. B. West, D. D.,
arose and addressed the audience,
most of whom were his old acquaint
ances and friends. He feelingly re
ferred to the ties of friendship that
existed between the good people of
ML Carmel neighborhood and hioudf.
He had known them long and loved
them tenderly. Ho said that mingling
with and studying each others charac
teristics enabled us to rub off the
rough corners and angles and make us
bvtter fricuds, and make the world
better, by softeniug the asperities of
life, causing us to be more charitable
in our feelings towards our fenows.
etc. To be useful, the education of
the head alone would not do, the
heart must be properly trained also.
It is the duty of parent to teach their
children in spiritual things, and not to
depend upon others to teach them
But as parents do not always discharge
this duty Sunday schools tre a nec-es
sity. Showed the difference between
the opportunities of early times and
the present in training children. Stub
bornness and restlessness are not ob
jectionable in children if they are
properly balanced in after years they
would tend to make them men and
women cf firmness and decision of
character not putty men to be dented
into any shape. Ilia leading thought
was that children should be taught to
look upon the beautiful, in nature, in
philosophy, literature, and in every
thing. . The true gentleman does not
look upon the deformity and rough
exterior of his fellows, but strives to
6ee only the beautifuL ' Beauty has
more power than all else beside. To
turn from the contemplation of the
ugly makes us better, makes us happy.
We only attempt an outline of his
somewhat novel yet deeply interesting
thread of thought, to give some idea
of his discourse of an hour's length
It was delivered in a plain practical
manner, and we predict that some of
the solemn and impressive truths he
enunciated found a lodgment in many
young hearts that will prove to be
"bread cast upon the waters."
At the conclusion of Dr. West's ad
dress, the children sang some beauti
ful songs, when
was announced, a procession was
formed and the crowd marched down
to the tables, where the barbecued re
past was spread. After all had satis
fied the inner man to repletion, the
audience reassembled around the
stand, when Judge C. W. Tyler ap
peared and made a few happy remarks,
and on account of the lateness of the
hour, and there still being an unfinish
ed programme, thought it would be
advisable to withhold his speech until
their next annual celebration, when,
he promised them, if they desired it,
(although he had never made a speech
to one lady,) to make one to as many
as would turn out next September, at
the same place, upon a similar occa
sion. We promise, in advance, a rich
intellectual treat to all who may be so
fortunate as to hear him at their next

The report of the workings of this

condition, with large additions to the
membership each succeeding year.
Both teachers and pupils are heartily
enlisted in the glorious work of build
ing up and keeping alive this nursery
of the church. In fact, all the means
and instrumentalities that are being
used for the amelioration and salvation
of the people are realously guarded
and fostered by the society of old Mt.

for their good works, intelligence and
The benediction was pronounced,
the crowd dispersed, and thus ended
one of the most enjoyable days we ever

close our somewhat disconnected
sketch of this pleasant affair, by re
turning thanks to the many kind
friends there for marked courtesy and
attention shown at 31 1. Carmel. To

the extreme kindness and hospitality
extended to your humble writer in his

Died, on Tuesday morning, ths 9th
inst," at the residence of his son-in-law,
J. G. McKoin, in this county, Mr.
John Kick Barker, one of the oldest
citizens of the county, at the age of
77 years. Mr. Barker was too well
known to need any extended notice.
His leading characteristics were firm
ness of will and honest intentions
which marked his deportment in a!
the relations of social,' business and
religious life. He was, for some forty
years, a continuous subscriber to the
Chronicle, and in all our business an
social intercourse witu him, we ever
found him an honest man, iu act, as
well as profession.. For years, he was
a victim of paralysis, and death was to
him, a relief from affliction.
Death of Wm. M. Shelton.
It is with deep regret that w record
the death of Mr. Wm. M. Shelton,
which occurred suddenly on the even
ing of the 9th inst. Mr. Shelton had
been out to feed his hogs and returing
home, was attacked with i spell of
heart disease, and sat down by the side
of the road, where he was found by
two negroes who were coming from the
cornfield, and carried to the house,
where he died in about twenty min
utes. "" . '
Mr. Shelton was about seventy years
of age, and was one of the oldest rest
dents of the county. He was a fond
husband, a devoted father, a warm and
generous friend, and a kind neighbor,
and was considered one of the most
useful men in the county, and one who
will be missed by almost every citizen,
He was for six ' years .Sheriff of this
county, and had been for a number of
years previous to his death County
Surveyor. The duties of these offices
he discharged in such a manner as to
win the confidence and esteem of all
who knew him, ever acting up to what
he believed to be his duty, without
fear or favor. His store of general
information was large and his opinion
was often sought and his influence
His remains were taken to the fami

for interment last Wednesday. To his
afflicted family and relatives we tender
our incere sympathy. ; ' -
We regret having to announce the
death of Mr. John F. Cambell, on
ast Sunday evening after a protracted

To the family, of which he was cher
ished and affectionate member, we ten
der our deepest sympathy.
According to former announce
ment, V. L. Williams is now receiv
ing the largest stock of boots, shoes,
hats, &.c, &c, ever heretofore kept in
Clarksville. These goods were bought
from the manufacturers for cash, and
as he is conducting his business upon
strictly economical business principles,
he will be enabled to sell them at such
ow prices as to successfully challenge
all competition. ' t;. i
He is building up a good lucrative
business by adhering closely to the
principle of "quick sales and short
profits." He would earnestly ask all
to call and examine his stock and pri
ces, before buying, as it will consume
but a few minutes - of your time, and
he will take great pleasure in showing
you through and then you decide the
question where shall I buy my Boots
and Shoes? His store room is No.

' Painful Accident. We regret to
learn of a serious accident which hap
pened to Mrs. E. Withers, formerly
of this place, who has the deepest
sympathy of our entire community in
her misfortune. We copy from the
Cincinnati Enquirer of the 5th inst :
"While two ladies, one of them Mrs.
E. Withers, late of Clarksville, were
purchasing furniture in the store of
Mitchell & Rammelsberg yesterday
morning a terrible misfortune over
took the latter. Having occasion to
go to the 5th story, the ladies entered
the elevator, in compauy with a gen
tlemau who has been for nearly twen
ty years a popular salesman in the
house. While the ascent was being
made Mrs. N ithers dress caught in
the "safety" cogs of the machine. The
gentleman attempted to stop the eleva
tor, but either from hurry or fright, or
from inexperience, he Hid not succeed
in doing so instantly. He then tried
to tear the dress loose. This failing,
all parties lost their presence of mind,
an opening being reached, Mrs. W.
was allowed to attempt to iump through
it She managed to get her head and
body out of the car, but her limbs', of
course, were caught. One of her legs
from above the knee downward was
frightfully crushed, and the car only
stopped its horrible work, when the
jammed ankle served as a clog to its
ascent, and the unfortunate lady hung
head downward. As soon as : possible
she was extricated, placed on a mat
tress and taken down to the lower floor
on the merchandise elevator. Messrs.
Mitchell & Rammelsberg did all in
their power to assist the patient, and
the old gentleman wjio had been the
innocent cause of the accident cried
like a child. Dr. R. W. Saunders, of
Newport, was fortunately close at hand,
and was in surgical charge of the case,
Dr. Comegys also being called. The
patient was removed to 312 Richmond
street after proper attention on the spot,
and there lies suffering greatly, and
with little prospect of escaping ampu
tation above the knee."
Later advices Btate that Mrs. With
ers is doing well, and it is thought am
putation will not be necessary.
Up to this date, we have not heard of
the appointment of a single delegate to
the Farmers' Convention, at Nashville,
on Tuesday next. We had hoped the
farmers of Montgomery would have
taken an active part in such a move
ment, the sole object of which, is the
promotion of their interests. In the
absence of regular delegates, we would
suggest that any farmer of this county
who may be in Nashville, on that day,
report himself to the Convention, and
take part in the proceedings.

Taylor, of the C. Pt Church, and Revs.
W. T. Nesbitt and John Parrott, of
the M. E. Church. The Church was
greatly revived, the utmost harujony
prevailing among the different denom
inations, and even sinners were con
strained to say, "behold how good and
how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell
together in unity." Twelve persons
made a profession of faith; nine were

Owe farmer reports to us that his
experiment with Cobalt, for poisoning
tobacco flies, was a signal success; but,
though he destroyed great numbers,
ha does not perceive that he had fewer
worms than his neigbors. His neigh
bors raised a superabundance of flies
and divided liberally with him. It is
impossible for one fanner to proteet a
whole neighborhood, and his experi
ence is an illustration of the necessity
for co-operation. Had all the farmers
for miles around, destroyed as many
flies as he did, all would have been
protected from the ravages of the
worms, and perhaps, another year's ex
periment would suffice for a thorough
riddance of the pest A pull all to
gether, and the work will be done.
Individual effort will accomplish Jittlc,
where full co-operation alone, can se
cure success. " .
