Dka Clario.1 : A Ur notes of a trip tothupart of the Old Dominiou may possi bly interest your readers ; but it Ins been so longainee I indulged in newspaper cor respondence, I feel aomewhat ' rusty" in the business A telegram ausinc my hurried liepnrturo from Jackson on Thursday night, 17th, I took the "BIO J.' ROfTK. Thi solid mud-bed, the reat iieed. and t!u comfortable', w ell appointed cars, ami cour teous offkials, are ail the outcome of ample capi-al, dushinjr enlcrprise, and si ni;ina,'i lueut that has placed this reat rosd naont the first in the land. It was a lucky day for our section when Co!. J. C. Clarke as sumed direction of the New . , Jack son and Great Nor. hem llulrouil, and a life- y appreciation of this was manifested in the regrets and protects expressed by the press and people a year asu when it was feared he would resiin his connection with the road. The completion of the ro.id to Yazoo City, the erection of a union depot at Ja;k- son. ami the scheduling of freights so as to justify an enlargement of our compress and the shipment of cotton direct ts the eastern or foreigu spinners, are among the things that must soon be realized by our community. And then if the capital ists f Jackson do not concentrate some of their spare cash on a big cotton faciory, outsiders doubtless will, aad will profit by the venture. The tide of immigration and capital is tending southward, and there will he few places more ehgihle or accessible than Jackson, or that has better surround ings. A SUGGESTION. The sudden, but not serious illness of two ladies on the train, from Galena, HI., who had been visiting the family of Col. W. H. Gibbs, prompts the suggestion that every passenger train should be provided with a medicine chest. There is not a drug store eonvenient to the train at any station be tween Jackson and Milan, and unless pas sengers carry an apothecary shop along with them, they will sometimes suffer from change of diet or water. At Jack&an, Tenn , I had the pleasure of meeting Capt. Jno. A. Webb, who for sever al years was the acceptable railroad agent at Jackson, Miss. He is aow the efficient SOLICITING FREIGHT AGENT of the Illinois Central. For the last few weeks he has been working up the straw berrv interest, aud when we saw him he had on his book a memoranda of twenty-two ear loads of berries that he had shipped from points between Jackson, Tenn., and Milan, the aggregate freights being i'2,666.00. He got them to market in good time and in fine condition the growers realizing a handsome profit. Some appreciative shipper, at a point south of Milan, handed him a com-plimenta-y basket of the Sharpies variety, and that they were of excellent flavor I can testily. Passengers w ho come to Louisville by the Illinois Central route, reach MILAN, TENN., at about oue o'clock, and have just time to gel a good dinner, when the train eotnes along for Louisville, n arriving at Clarks ville at six o'clock, I had the pleasure of meeting at the depot Mr. John H. Boyd, and Mr. Jos W. Power, students of the Southwestern Presbyterian University, who roue with me to Guthrie, the supper station, and returned by the passing train. Mr. Boyd will graduate at the University next week, and will next fall enter upon the prescribed course at the Theological Semi nary at Princeton a full scholarship having been tendered him. If life and health are spared him, he will make his mark in the ministry, and the ladies of our Presbyterian church" in Jackson will have no cause to regret the substantial heJn they are giving him to acquire his education. It is a riue ol twelve nours irom MILAN TO LOUISVILLE, via Bowling Green. The cars were crowded, but all strange faces. The only creature who seemed disposed to stnue up an ac quaintance with your correspondent, was a poor lemale lunatic wno was oeuy? carrieu I ... i T ...

ItTnust be a sad alternative, to consign a dear relative or friend to a Lunatic Asylum. As a rule, those institutions are noted for their com forts, and for the skill and kindness ot those in eharcre. but nevertheless it must nave the semblance ol "Duryina aiive wwse wo lnve when we transfer them to the dor mitories and iron-barred rooms of a Lunatic A vlnm. j. i i..i At IWOO C10CK On r riuajr muiuiug, i luuiiu my sell at THE G ALT HOUSE, LOUISVILLE, immense and stately establishment. ii, oi for live next half century must con tinue to be too big for the place. The hotel continues to be well kept, but as an invest ment for the owners is not very prouiauie. I was partaking of a rai'road breaktast, pre- ..iiirvlo a trio over the Chesapeake Ohio ro'ute, when seeing a Knight Templar, shoulder-strapped and jewelled, I inquired the cause of such a gay and festive costume He informed me that tne GRAND COMMANPEIiY OF KNIGHTS TEM LA It is said to have been abducted from Bata yia, N. Y., a good many years ago for expos ing the secrets of Freemasonry. The book is intended as a refutation of "some "revela tions ' given by Thurlow Weed just before his death. Dr. Morris has been gathering the facts of his book for forty years, and was io possession of information which he could not publish until after the death of the par ties who communicated it. It was my pleasure, also, to meet at the Grand Com mandery that eleirmi gontleman and ac complished Masonic writer, Theo. T. 0ur ney, of Chicago. About one hunlred Sir Knights will go to San Francisco, and they arc anxious to have some of their Mississippi fratcr? joiu them in the pilgrimage. Having a little spare time on hand, I dis pos d of some of it in a v. sit to t!ie I'sKseti er ttopartmesd of the L. AND N. RAILROAD. Everybody kUOWi that Col. P. Atmore is, and has Men for inauv fears, the Geuer- was in sessian, and extended acourleousin i.,mn m i.av that body a visit. "A fellow maWcs us wondrous kind," and so I resolved to stay aver and make the person al acquaintance of some gallant Knights whose names were very familiar, sach ss Cronnigcr, Bassett, Thomas, Grant, Morris, linrrnws et, al. The Crand Comtnandery did me the honor of sending an escort to my quarters. A cordial, ivenuH sy iwui ..,. ..-run. led the wearv pilgrim from Mis sissippi who responded as best he could. Here 1 had the great pleasure of meeting I)r Bob Morris, the distinguished traveler, lecturer, poet an 1 writer on Masonic sub ieeta generally. He was made a Mason m Oxford Lodge, No. 33, where Judge Howry conferred the degrees upon him. He nlter- i u.,i,i miiiherhin and was for some years Secretary of Pearl Lodge, No. J3, Jackson. He made many inquiries as to the men of his day in Jackson, but nearly all whom he mentioned had parsed away. Dr. Morris has recently published in book form the bottom.facts in reference to Morgan.who al Passenger Ag-nl of this ;:reat road and nil its connections. 1 found him ns geiu.il and clever, as when, nearly twenty years ago, he called . it Till: Ct.vKios office while mi an advertising tour through the South. Some of our press brethren w ill remember his courtesies to our excursion in 1,S7,", when he furnished transportation ami accom panied us from Louisville to the Mammoth Cave. He expressed a wish lo see all the Mississippi editors at the (iREAT LOUISVILLE BXPOUTIOJI ill August, and will be ready to do his share toward getting them there. 0f this, more anon. The Exposition promises to be an immense affair. The citizens have subscribed most liberally, and the indications are that every inch of space will be occupied with merito rious exhibits. A few thousand dollars ex pended in judicious advertising of the Ex position would be a good investment. The press feels very kindly toward all such enter prises, but occasional and chance publica tions will not get such a thing befoie the people throughout the vast territory whence products and visitors arc expected. Leaving Louisville at 2:30 r. m , Saturday, I took what is called the accomodation or slow train to LEXINGTON, KV. Passing through Anchorage, where Belle wood seminary is located, LaGrange, tha home of Ir. Bob. Morris, and Frankfort, the State Capital, I arrived at 7 o'clock P. h , at the beautiful and growing city of Lex ington, where the General Assembly of the Southern Presbyterian Church is now in ses sion. I was met at the depot by ray old commander and friend, Col. wii. T. Withers, who took me to his pulatial home, "Fair lawn," in the suburbs of the city, where a hearty welcome awaited me. The Colonel purchased this property about twelve years ago, for thirty thousand dollars It in cludes one hundred aad fifty acres. Here he established a stock breed-farm, which has assumed immense proportions, and has now not only a national but world-wide rep utation. His first purchase was the cele brated trotting horse Almont, (No. 83) for which he nai.i fifteen thousand dollars, and for which he was afterwards offered thirty thousand dollars ; and I doubt very much if titty thousand dollars would take him away from Fairlawn. The horse is nineteen years old. A picture of him, in harness, painted by a uoston artist, wno came to Fairlawn expressly for that purpose, at a cost of three hundred dollars, is in a mas sive gilt frame over the parlor mantle piece. 1 here are several other horses ot national fame at Fairlawn, and his ninth annual cat aloguea book of 180 pages gives the names and pedigrees of nearly three hun dred head nothing less than five hundred dollars, and thence up in the thousands. It would ocenpy columns of space to de scribe the wonderful things to be seen at "Fair'.awn, and not being an expert in horse matters, will not attempt it. There is one stable at "rairlawn' that cost about fifteen thousand dollars! It has twenty stalls, each about twenty feet square, spa cious hall ways, extensive galleries, stained glass windows, a g'and tower, the roof and tower covered with sheet iron especially imported, the inside finish of the stable b-i n-r as elegant as that of a Pullman car. The stalls have inside and outside doors, so that in case of fire the horses can be taken out in a few moments. The ventillation of the stable is perfect. The Colonel has recently returned Irom Arizona, where he made large investments in mining property. He has still large in terests in Mississippi, mostly in Hinds conn tv Hislroop of army friends especially will be pleased tn learn that fortune smiles so benignly on tneiront coinmaiioer. In his family affairs, I ol. Withers has been singularly blessed. Mrs. Withers is one of tlie most estimable of her sex. Ten children have been born to them, all living the oldest daughters, Alice and Ida being married and comfortably settled. Misj "Rcb,"the eldest of the home girls, is an attractive voung lady, and is rather proud of her war nickname. Sharkey has made a trip to the Sandwich Islands, in charge of fine stock purchased by the king at rair lawn. THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, In session at Lexington, is very fully at tended, and the two hundred or more dele gates are comfortably quartered in the hosui table homes of the people. On Saturday last, the commissioners from the Northern General Assembly were introduced and re ceived a hearty welcome. The commission ers are the venerable Dr. Prime, of New York. Hon. Samuel M. Moore, of Chicago, Dr. Ilumxihreys of Louiavillc, and Dr. Nic eois of SR Loiiis. They were introduced by Rev. Dr. Bullock, Chaplain of the U. b. Senate. The venerable Dr. Pry or. Modera tor of the Assembly, gave the delegates a most cordial greeting, and their responses, and their telegrams to their own Assembly, have established "fraternal relations'' an a most acceptable and pleasant basis. Ihc Northern Assembly has already adopted n resolution and appointed a committee to re port in 1884, looking somewhat to organic union. On Sabbath, it was my privilege to attend service in the First Presbyterian Church, f which the REV. DR. W. F. V. BARTLETT, so well and favorably known in Mississippi, ia the greatly beloved pastor. The Assem bly is holding its sessions in this church. The Moderator, Dr. Pryor, preached. He is the father of Roger A. Pryor; is over eighty years of age, bnt still preaches with irrent fo'rce. Dr. Prime read and commented on the 19th Psalm; Dr. Bullock offered the closing prayer, and read the closing hymn The music was grand, and the house filled to overflowing. I was very agreeably sur prised in meeting at the church Mrs. Iva W. Hampton, (daughter of Judgs T. J. Wharton) who lives at Frankfort, but who came up to Lexington hoping she would see some o; her sequaintanees at the Assembly. "There is no place tike home," is a senti ment we fully realized when we met a friend and neighbor in a distant city, among strangers. The General Assembly celebrated the sac rament of the Lord's Supper at S o'clock Sunday eveniug; and at a later hour there was a mats meeting of the children, when Urs. Prime, Niccols and Humphreys sd dreosed Ueiu;bnta steady rain, and the oomfortable surroundings of Fairlawn kept me frorabfith meetings , Taking advantage of a new and lighting schedule On the H l A iT A M AND OHIO RAILROAD, leaving lduisvi'le nt ":' r.

THE CITY OP STAUNTON, Where I find mvself to-day, has a popula tion of about seveu thousand, and has long been noted for its schools and public insti tutions. Its schools for young ladies arc Augusta Female Seminary, (Presbyterian), Weslvan female Institute ( Methodist i. Staunton Female Seminary, (Lutheran), and Virginia Female institute. ( Eniseoual 1 the latter oonducted by the widow ol Gen. J. E. B. Stusrt The Hoover Institute, conducted en the military plan, is the prin ciple school for boys. I he public in.stii utions are, the Hospital far the Insane, and Institution for the Deaf, numb and Hlind the mutes and blind be ing under one general management. I made an attempt t visit the Insane Hospital, but as I approached the gate the clock was striking twelve, aud the rude gate keeper informed me and my lady en'urt, that even the grounds were too sacred for our to tread after the prescribed moment for admission. While expressing mv disappointment at the hotel table, a young Tirgininn look special pains to inform me that all the institutions were now in charge of the Rendjusters! But it is to be hoped that the Insane Hos pital irate keener is not a renrraentative specimen of this new spawn of spoils and corruption. Having some acquaintance at the W Ks- ltan Female IaanTCTB, I visited that large and very popular school. Rev. Dr. Wm. A. Harris is the President, with a full and able faculty. About 1(K) boarding pupils th.Mi from Mississippi being the Misses !Nina and Drue Gibbs, of Raymond, Maud Dovle. of Oxford.

There was quite a panic and stam pede from the Institute dunug the winter, in consequence of a death from scarlet fever. The work of the school was suspend ed for more then a month the girls having scattered in all directions until it was pru dent to return. There are about one hun dred now in attendance. The session will be continued so as to make up the lost time. THE AUGUSTA FEMALE SEMINARY Was to have closed its session on 28th and 29th, but in consequence of a mild but well developed case of scarlet fever eceurring last inursday, it was deemed best to close a week earlier. The commencement exer cises usually occupy two days, but they were crowded into a hurried entertainment of three hours to-night, when certificates and gold medals were presented, and one full diploma in the literarv course awarded to ;u m..i-....i ..( v.... it. f. ii 1.1 UV 11 Ilk HI forty SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.

Augusta has a na tional reputation for,cotnpletness in all its appointments, and for the thoroughness of its work. A young lady may obtain high scholarship at this Seminary, but she must be studious and accomplished indeed v, hen she gets a diploma, which means profi ciency in nine prescribed studies, including at least one ancient language. Miss Mary J. Baldwin is the Principal. 8hc is a indy of great scholastic attainments and of supe rior executive ability. She is greatly be loved by her pupils. Her word is law.
