We have been . requested several
times to speak of the desecration of
the Sabbath which is indulged in by
a number of the young people in our
city, ou the base-ball hi!!. It seems
that a large crowd assembles there
every Sunday evening, and engage in
playing base-ball, and expand their
lungs to such , an extent, as to be
beard by the ".entire. neighborhood.
There is a law prohibiting any dese
cration of the Sabbath, but it does
appear "to us that young gentlemen
should desist from such practices upon
the score of morality and a due ob
servance of the Sabbath day. Many,
doubtless, engage in this kind of Sab
bath-breaking without thinking of
its effect upon themselves or thoso
younger others go there against
parental advice, and to such this
gentle hint may serve to let heads
of families know how some of the
children spend their Sunday eveniugs.
Our object in penning these lines is not
intended so much as a reprimand, as to
bring about reflection upon the part of
those who indulge in such things, be
lieving that upon reflection they will
cease to do evil and learn to do good.
Wholesale Trade. There is a
much larger trade done at wholesale,
in the dry goods line, in this city, than
many persons are aware of. Those en
terprising merchants, Messrs. Bloch
Bros., have been gradually building up
a wholesale trade for many years, un:
til it actually became necessary to en
large their store-room, which they did
by buying the room adjoining, which
enabled them to classify their goods so
as to attract the attention of country
merchants to the quantity of goods
kept in stock from which purchases
could be made without conflicting with
their retail department. By means of
an entrance in the center of the par
tition wall, dealers can pass from one
department to the other without the
slightest inconvenience. In this new
department may be found large stocks
of calicoes, domestics, aud all staple
supplier, kept well assorted by con
stant importations. This department
is presided over by experienced clerks,
and the goods are kept strictly for the
This feature in our trade is worthy
of mention, and as it is not generally
known, we take pleasure in calling the
attention of buyers to this fact that
they can procure goods in any quantity,
of the best brands, at prices that will
justify them in patroniziog our home
Youe Attention ! There is a cer
tain class in this community, and in
the counties surrounding us, to whom
we desire to make an earnest appeal
and we believe the class referred to
are too charitable to let an appeal,
made in real earnest, go unheeded.
With these preliminary remarks we
proceed to tell our tale of woe.
We have quite a large number of ac-
counts some large ana some small
due us by various persons, and a major
ity of them are able to pay us. If we
ever needed what is due us, we need
it now. So, without further sermon
izing, kind delinquents, please send
us what you owe us, and enable us to
keep our heads above the waves. e
believe this modest hint will find its
way to the hearts and purses of -some

Fine Wheat. We have several
specimens of wheat furnished us by
Mr. Ichabod Dean who is cultivating
the Hutchinson farm, about four miles
from the Parry Landing. It is the
variety known as white May wheat, and
is about four feet in height, with long
heads and plump grains. We counted
forty-nine stalks iu one cluster from
one grain of wheat, and fifty-eight
stalks in another. Mr. Dean says he
has about eighty acres of this wheat,
and the specimens he brought in were
not selected, but present an average
of the yield. He will cut it this week,
and we hope it may ruieunerate him
with an extraordinary yield of choice
A Private Canimj. Our worthy
postmaster, Mr. llexioger, opened the
office as usual, on the morning of the
15th inst.. and took his seat at his
desk, when he discovered a beautiful
ebony cane, mounted with a gold head,
of exquisite finish and design, the in
scription on it showing that some kind
friend had placed it there as a gift
the 15th being hi birthday. He did
not know who the donor was, but his
countenance clearly indicated bis ap
preciation of the elegant present.
Now that the fruit and forest trees,
shrubbery, etc., around Mr.
Muulord's resideuce are in full leaf, hi
beautiful suburban home is very attrac
tive. He has about eight or ten acres
upon which is located hisdwelliugand
orchard, and on the north side he has
soma sixteen acres planted in com.
oats and cloier, His entire surround
ings make his plac udq of the most
desirable on Greenwood Aveuiw, or,
deed, in the city. A man of his
sterling worth and cuergy deserves the
comfort of life, and we trust he may
always be blessed with them.

ESTHER, THE BEAUTIFUL QUEE9
Seager's Oratorio, Esther, was pro
duced for the first time in this city on
last Wednesday night, by a company
of amateur singers of Nashville and
Edgefield. It had a fine reputation as
rendered by these ladies and gentle
men, and fully met public expectation.
There were about sixty ladies and gen
tlemen who took part in this beautiful
contata. They were costumed elegant
ly and all knew and sustained their
parts admirably. The universal opin
ion, so tar as we nave Heard an ex
pression, is that it was the best thing
of the kind ever produced before a
Clarksville; audience. .This opinion,
wc can asiiure our Nashville and Edge
field friends, is worth something, be
cause our very best and most accom
plished people, ladies and gentlemen,
were present. Indeed we do not re
member ever to have seen so many of
the very best of our society gathered
together on one occasion.
We have no criticism to make upon
the music or those who took part in
it. They all did well. If we had to
say which of the ladies sang best, ac
cording to our judgment, we would say
that Miss Bettie Scovel of Nashville,
excelled. Her voice is sweet, and at
once arrests the attention of a popular
audience. She was the favorite so far
as we can learn.
The Queen, Mrs. Green, did her
part well, and is a lady of great digni
ty and rare accomplishments.
The King, Prof. Baily, is an accom
plished musician and we hear every
one speak in terms of praise of the
part he played.
Mr. Brown, who personated Haman,
was one of the most serious and earn
est of the party. A better person for
his place could not have been found,
and the audience deeply sympathized
with him when he was led out to be
hung. But as he appeared on the
streets the next day, looking as good as
new, we are sure he will again enjoy
the King's confidence.
Mr. Jesse French, who appeared in

he acted the Jew to the life. He has
a splendid voice and sings, according
to our liking, finely. '
During the performance, between
two acts, Mrs. Maud Smith, of Nash
ville, sang two songs, and was loudly
applaudedand received a perfect show
er of boquets.
This is no professional company, but
it is made np of accomplished ladies
and gentlemen who are themselves
perfectly independent, and only agree
to take a part in this concert for their
own enjoyment and to serve the chari
table purpose of jiding the financial
condition of two Churches', one at
Clarksville and one at Edgefield. In
a financial view, it was a success, as it
was in every other way.
Success to those ladies and gentle
men wherever they may go.
We had a severe gale of wind and
a heavy fall of rain last Monday even
ing. We hear of no particular dam
age by the wind. An observant gen
tleman informs us that the current of
wind was too high to effect the wheat.
Another storm of wind and rain
occurred here last Wednesday between
11 o'clock a. m., and 2 p. m. Many
shade trees were blown down and
otherwise injured around the city.
Madison street was completely carpet
ed with leaves and twigs. Garden corn
was blown down and badly tangled.
The roof on the Cumberland Tobac
co Warehouse, was blown off and the
attaches of th j house were, for awhile,
exposed to the falling rain. The tin
roofing on the rear end of the Baptist
Church was taken up and rolled to
gether, but has since been replaced.
Since penuing the above, our friend,
T. D. Leonard, Esq., reports that he
was on his way home, during this storm,
from Barker's mill, and found a great
deal of timber blown across the road,
whole strings of fencing swept away,
and one or two houses in the suburbs of
New Providence blown down. On his
arrival at home he found that he was
also a great sufferer from the storm.
His large, well built tobacco barn was
completely scattered to the winds, a
lame number of choice fruit trees
broken down and ruined, his wheat
and rye badly damaged, and his fenc
ing thrown to the ground. Thus, in a
short time, much of his hard labor is
brought to naught, entailing upon him
heavy loss, at a time, too, when he is
illvableto meet it. Mr. Leonard is
not the roan to "cry over spilt milk,'
but will eo to work iu earnest to repair
his loss. Wo assure him that he has
the sympathy of our citizens, a major
ity of whom wjll be sorry that tfeey
cannot offer anything more Bubstan.-

Died, in this city, on the 31st ult,
Mrs. Saeah Elliott, wife of Major
David Elliott, aged 85 years.
She was born in Ireland, in the year
1791, and came to Pennslyvania when
six years old. She resided there until
1815, when she was married and moved
to Montgomery county, Tenn. She
reared a cumber of children, ' several
of whom survive her and reside in this
city. She was an intelligent.'christian
lady, and waa an ornament to the
Methodist church, of which she had
long been a member. The scriptural
' j phrase. " she eateth not the bread of
idleness," was truly applicable in her
case. Industry, and a constant desire
to do eood were marked traits in her
character. May her surving children
and friends be prepared to meet her in
heaven, for she is there.

the interests of our city, and we hope
that oar citizens generally, regardless
of sect, will purchase tickets whether
they attend the Pic-nic or not. They
will have all arrangements perfected
to insure enjoyment to all who attend.

A Gloomy Grain Prospect.
The recent increase in the volume of
grain shipped from this city is alto
gether due to a decline in freights,
there being no material improvement
in the tone of the markets on the
other side of the Atlantic. The feel
ing there is represented to be as blue
as ever. Several severe losses nave
ensued to holders of grain there, and
operators seem afraid to touch it ex
cept merely to pass it along. They do
not want to hold any stocks even lor a
day, and the demand is therefore of
the hand-to-mouth character, which
makes the available supply seem much
lareer than it is. by keeping a much
greater proportion of it than nsual in
or near the hands ot the producers.
Yet with all their caution, the impor
ters of grain are losing. News was
received here yesterday of the failure
of a larce era in importing house in
Scotland, and that fact had something
to do with the weakness exhibited in
wheat and corn. The news of fine
i.i . t . .
crop prospects in r.urope tenas to
weaken prices there, and the down
ward tendency is helped by the' news
of greater shipments from the United
States, as former low prices were
based upon the assumed tact that but
little was wanted there. This feature
of the market increases tho difficulty
of moving out our large stocks, and
makes the tuture ot the shipping hus
iness still more of an enigma. Chi-
The Jackson Dispatch suggests that
a day of thanksgiving be observed by
our people generally as a token of their
gratitude to God, for the abundant
crops now beginning to be harvested.
It says :
'How thankful wc should feel for
the present bright prospect of future
prosperity. It seems that God has
takeu especially into his owu hands
the agricultural interests of this coun
try. Wo have not suffered for a drop
of rain, nor have we had a drop too
much, and the weather has been par
ticularly favorable, especially for corn.
We know it is customary for people to
offer up prayer3 for deliverance from
scourges and every impending danger,
and as soon as the danger is past, they
seem to forget that it is their duty to
offer thanks. Now it seems to us that
we could not better speud a day as a
people than returning thanks lrom the
depths of earnest hearts to the Source
of all our blessings."
New Orleans has a horror that is
without parallel aud seems t'o be well
authenticated. It seems that: a Ten
nessee negro named George Brooks,
aged nineteen years, died of small-pox
at the hospital. At least, he died to
all intents and purposes, and the doctor
certified that he was dead. The body
was placed in a rough coffin, which was
put on a wagon and started for the
potter s held. Un the way.the negro
revived, pushed up the lid and tried to
get out, as several persons living on the
road testily, ihc driver, however,
thought he ought to be dead at least
and alter stopping long enough on the
wav to nut an extra nail or two in the
lid made haste for the graycyard. It
was even reported that the driver
struck the man with a brick and told
him he had to be buried anyhow ac
cording to the doctor's certificate.
Several witnesses s;:id they saw the
body move and the hands working at
the lid. Anyhow, the burial went on.
The driver has beeu arrested. J?i-
