Convenient bath-room afache-l. Aqueducts
are worked in the walls f the buildiuir, which
are to be supplied vvi;Ij water ruined from a
well by the power of a wind-mill. Mr. Pea
body is a practical man, in every serine of the
word, and we did not. eirer-sto him our doubts
fcbom the tti;cts of the wind-mill arrangement-,
but we may say here behind his back
that he will be fortunate if it should not prove
b source of tnnch annoyance and perplexity.
Mr. Pkabodt tin. c conducted ns through bis
Strawberry Beds the famous "Hautboy" and
the '"IJovey Seedling." These of course are
rot bearing, in thi dry reason of the year,
but the imagination pictures how beautiful
must be the spectacle they present in the
spring and summer, if rains aro abundant, or
when the beds are otherwise copiously water
ed. Did the reader ever see au acre of straw
berries in full beuriiif.'? Let him visit this
farm t the proper season, and his eyes will be
feast d with a view of several acre-, and bis
palate thrown into ecstacies.
We next vis-kid a tild of twenty five acres
of newly cleared pine sandy land, on which
had been bestowed to each acre a sack of gu
ano, or about ltiUbs. One grain, or kernel,
cf the "Prolific Corn" is planted in each hill,
from vi Inch springs a main stalk and from two
to three "tillers," usually called "suckers."
I'l.o tillers are allowed to grow with the main
s:alk, and each bears from two to 'breeears
of coru. We toui-d, usually, six to nine ears
to the hill, and sometimes more. In one hill
we cotiti'ed eighteen ears, in au adjiceul field
which had been long iu cultivation.
Mr. P. expects to gather from the first nam
ed field 00 to 100 btiehelsto the acre. fJe will
probably contend for a priz j before the State
Fair in November nexr, with the products of
this field, and any one who has seen it cannot
doubt that the prize will be awarded to him,
unless some other planter, whose keen foresight
has induced him to plant the same kind of
feed on better land, enters the arena in oppo
ti'ioti. A Harbour county planter recently
visaed Mr. P., ard admitted rhut fifty acres
of I he "prolific corn" which he there saw,
would produce more than 400 p.cres of his
own, which was yro a ir g luxuriantly from 12
to 15 feet high.
Now if the Pea body C rn produces so well
on the poorest lands of the State, what would
be fi e result on our best corn lands, when
t-killiully cukivatt? Or if it produces better
on the poor lands, which surely is not the case,
what an immense iniinbt r of bnsl e!s would
be added to the annual coru ciop, if even the
poorer lai.dswere sowed in the 'prolific con.?1
Snppoe that only ten bushels per aero were
added to the present yield of the coru lands

the 'puddle- com' were genu-a!, three fourths

be utirely rnuuvtd.

period, and vv l eu i hi.- i accomplished, may
we not bid d fiance to the Liverpool produce

We have not spttco to mention the nunor
cops of this farm, and many other objects of
iuterest connected therewith.
Jireakfast was announced, and we were met
at the threshold by Mrs. Peabody and oue of
h r fair daughters. Mr. and Mrs. P. have nine
children, j-ome of them grow u, and j et tha
visit r is aujazed at the linger ing bloom of
youth presented in ihe appearance of the
j riiitf; indeed they seem to be, but in the
prime of life. It is prot-ab.'y accounted for
by t heir having resided i ineiet-n y ears on these
sand-hills, which !iat enabled them to escape
the services of the doctors.
Having beeti introduced, we were ushered
to a teeming breakfast table, where a profus
ion of edibles, in great variety, was spread,
and nettrly all of wdrch was produced on the
farm. We rnusf waive particulars, only say

1 lo State Fair.
We shall make no excuses forfreqnently
calling the attention of the readers of the
Patriot to the State Fair, which' opens
next Monday. These exhibitions originat
ed in an earnest desire to advance the in
terests of the farmer, the planter, the me
chanic; and, we may add, of every class of
society for whatever tends to build op the
interests of the industrial and productive
classes, is of advantage to all and it is
but right that the public journalist shonld
devote to it a share a liberal share of
his labors. The first of our State Fairs
was highly successful. The masses jumped
at it, as they often do, at a new idea, with
uncommon, but unfortunately not persistent,
zeal. The succeeding efforts of the Agri
cultural Bureau did not find the public as
constant nor a3 appreciative, as they had
anticipated; whilst , the political conven
tion, held on their grounds last year, at an
extremely dusty and unpleasant season,
created an unfavorable impression against
the place chosen for holding the Fairs.
Now, what we wish to do to-day is to re
move, if any remain, the last trace of this
impression. We had heard much of the
improvements in progress on the grounds;
but, until Thursday afternoon, when we ac
cepted a kind invitation from Chief Mar
shal Cheatham to visit the place, had made
no personal inspection of them. We were
gratified, nay, delighted, to find that the
improvements are of a character to render
the coming Fair, in all respects, more com
fortable to both visitors and exhibitors,
than we had hoped for. The immense am
phitheatre, as we have heretofore remark
ed, has been covered in to protect the au
dience against sun and rain, whilst the
seats have been so enclosed as to render
them far more suitable to" the occupation
of ladies. Back of them, too, on a level
with the uppermost seat, a new feature has
been introduced, a wide promenade em
bracing the whole circle of the pavillion.
This will afford ample room for the au
dience to relieve themselves of the fatigues
of sitting. We have no doubt it will be
come vastly popular with the ladies. There
will be no dust to annoy. Accommoda
tions will be provided for the press, giving
reporters better facilities than they have
ever had to get at the results of the pro
ceedings daily. The accommodations for
visitors have been made on an enlarged
scale. The list of premiums offered to
draw out competitors has been extended,
and the premiums themselves are richer and
more valuable than any hitherto offered.
So far, then, as the efforts of the Bureau
are concerned, every thing has been done,
and properly done, to make the Fair suc
cessful. Every cause of complaint as to
the grounds has been removed, and it now
rests with those for whose benefit the fairs
were j. instituted, to complete the work.
Wliat are fair grounds, and the best of ac
commodations, if the exhibition is not at
tractive? Every farmer and planter in Da
vidson county, every mechanic and manu
facturer in Nashville, should have some
thing there to show; as ought every one in
other counties of the State who can do so
conveniently. Let them do this and the
fair next week will lo all that its most ar
dent friends could desire.

of the expected Lecture a ball be given, as we
are sure it would be highly productive.

A letter, dated Fort Kearney, September 6, re-crivi-d
in this city, Btt s that a party of returning
Cdifornwris, who psed through Sdt Lake on the
25th of July, report that the evening belore they
left that city the Mormons arrested Mr. WiUon,
whom th lute Surveyor Gonerd Burr left iu charge
of the officii, and, witb a rope around his neck and
a prsti at his breast, compelled him to answer
several questions which thy propounded about
U..II, Vfogo, and oihers. Mojjo was coumcted with
the Surveyor General's oRice. The Mormons mad
Wilson proini-e to bring Mogo to them during the
oextd.iy b fore they r b aaed him. Moo obtained
information of thesis proceedings, and immediately
quitted the city, leaving his wife behind, so pre
cipitate was his rctrrat. They were in pursuit of
L union and the other tl 'ik, but Landon escaped
by jumping out of a second story window. He
weut that night somewhere South, and the; report
is that lie was overtaken and killed. As these
Californiana made but a brief stay, they were uua
tIe to ascertain what became of Wil.-ou.
They also say that the Mormons were miking
preparations for a bdt, and did uot conceal tueir
hoc tile intentions. Elder Kimb II, in Lis haraugue
in the Tabernacle, laughed at the idea of Bending
United State9 troop to Utah, and said be could
"take his wives (thirty or forty of them) aud whip
the tweuty-tive hundred troops, arid come back an i
do a good da) work afterward." He further said
that provisions for tho army would come in the
valley, but the troops would utver enter Salt Lake
Two companies arrived at Fort Kearney on the
5th of September, eu route for Silt Lake, and the
tilth and lenill regiments of infantry were at that
time at Fort Laramie, fur theeanid dett nation.

A. lUisionary's Account of tbe Indian
The R?r. Mr. Hay, the American missionary in
IodU who escaped from Allahabad, returned to
Southampton from London on Starday night. In
Londoo he had an iuterview with Sir Charles Trev
elyan. Being one of the first persona who baa
come from the heart of the muticous districts, "and
being thoroughly acquainted with the history and
extent of the mutiny, aud with its nature and beat
ings, Lis society has been anxiously sought after,
Mr. Hay is decidedly of opinion that Delhi willnot
be taken before November or December. He hi.8
visited Delhi. Tne fort is built, after the nitive
fashion. Heavy guns would sooa batter down its
wall-1. Unfortunately the guos which we sent to
batter them down were captured by the r. bels at
Phil'our. When Mr. Hay left Allahabad the Baa
lish troops before Delhi were scarcely able to hold
tbeir owe; although always beating the mutineers
in every attack, tbey had slightly reefded Irons
their original position. It takes nearly 50 days for
troops to gel to D- lhi from Calcutta. Mr. Hay
thinks the news of (he mutiny at Din pore is bad
new, beesuae it shows that the cornmunicaiion be
tween C.Icutta ami Delhi nmy be lnteirupted.
There i-i one thins, however, to be consi lered, the
mutineers have no gm.s iu the n -ibb rhood.
Mr. Hay thinks the issuius: of the greased car
tridges to have been a great mi-take. The intelli
gent leaders of the mutineers well understood that
the yroased cartridge" iter.; withdrawn, and that,
the ;overimeiit explanations were satisfactory, but
toe illiterate natives never were convinced that the
outrage on their religion was cicoutinued. Th-J
writer asked Mr. Hay if he had any uoubt as to the
ultimate defeat of the mutineers. He said he had
uot the plihtest doubt of thtir defeat. There are
aoout 21.000 European troops now up in the North
west Provinces. The Sikhs, he believes, will be
faithful; at least they have no sympathy with the
Mahommejans and Hindoo. The missionary s
who w. re killed in Delhi were EiuJish church ruis
iotiaries M r.-Hy believes that lour of his broth
er American missionaries, with their families, dear
friends of his, and with wtiom he corresponded,
were massacred at Futtyghur.
The Supreme Court of Illinois has just de
cided that the free batiks of thatrtate cannot issue
time certificates of deposit. A bank issued a cer
tificate of the following purport:
44 J F , E?q , has deposited in this bank
two hundred and forty dollars currencv to the cre
dit of himself, payable iu like funds on the return of
this certificate, duly endorsed, four months after
44 , Cashier."
Before the expiration of four months, J. F., E?q.,
had managed to obtain the money without surren
dering the certificate. The bank consequently re
fused to piy when the same became due. The
certificate had, meantime, been assigned, and the
assignee brought action asainst the bank, and ob
tained judgment iu the Circuit Court. The bank
This paper contains all the essential elements of
a promissory note without limit or qualification,
and, besides that s'tnply i xpresses the con-id. ra
tion on which the promise ij made. Like a proniii
pory note, it was pat iu circulation by the endorse
ment of the promisee, and this action is brought by
the aSi-inee. If it was not a promissory note in
the commercial i-euse of the t rin, then by what
authority was it negotiated ? If our batiks may is
sue tin se time certificates of deposit, ti. en H the
public sliK exposed to all the mischiefs sgiioFt
which it was ttie intention of the Legislature to
make provision. The country may quickly be flood
ed w ith a currency of precisely this form aud char
acter. Ir is not a queion here whether this was
designed to circulate as currency. That was not
essential to make it void by the act. Banks miuht
issue promissory notes on time, in any other form,
not designed to be used as currency, but they
would be none tne less illegal. So lon as it was
possible to push such notes into circulation as cur
rency, it was suflici.-ni to the Legislature to prohi
bit them altogether. In this way idone could the
community be securely prjtected against the posi
bility ot huch a currrticv, and it is the duty ot the
courts to s e that tbe purposes of the law are not
defeated by any igenious form of words. We re

The chaste and delicate beauty of the fair stran

charm about her acting, in her pre.-ence and be
witching glances, that defied analysis, while it cap
tivated so wonderfully. The theatre was filled to
overflowing every night; standing room could hard
ly be found, and the furore grew icstead of abating.

ticle on the success of theatricals during the mon

At Wallack's, tho engagement of Miss Heron
has been a wretched failure; and it is a curious cir-cutn-tiinre
that the very sanit critics who wrote her
up so ferociously last year, have uow, almost to a
man, left her among the brebkers. This proves
distiuc'ly the truth of what we have said before,
that the furore for the immoral drama was only a

"We were present on the occasion, thirteen years
