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

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
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
Passengers w ho come to Louisville by the
Illinois Central route, reach

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.

is intended as a refutation of "some "revela

death. Dr. Morris has been gathering the
facts of his book for forty years, and was io

not publish until after the death of the par
ties who communicated it. It was my

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
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

Rev. Dr. Bullock, Chaplain of the U. b.

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

The appellee was engaged in the erec

of way, the work being under the super
vision of its agent Thompson who was
charged with the duty of procuring the
necessary poles which he was directed bj
the superintendent to get from the ap
pellee's right of way. The lalioress em
ployed, negligently or wilfully, cut cer
tain trees Irom tne land of the appellant
which were used as poles fur the tele
phone line, and this suit is brought to
recover the statutory penalty lor such
cutting. 1 lie testimony is COnuiCtulg

selves to the right of way, which was
clearly defined, while it was testified by
a witness for tin- plaintiff that his in

Granger's Meeting.
Newton Free Press.
We are informed that there will bo
a big gathering of (rangers at the camp
ground near Lake. (ur Informant tell
us there will be delegates trom some nvo
or six counties. Siieeches will of course
be the order of the day. The parties
will remain in camp for several days.
If this meeting would organize them
selves into a Stock Breeders and Agri

on have annual exhibitions, it would
doubtless be of some material benefit,
both to themselves and the people whom
they represent.
A Leading Measure.
"II." in Macon Beacon.
The question of an amendment to tho
Constitution of the State making judi
cial officers elective, instead of appoin
tive as at present, will in all probability
lie a leading measure before the next
Legislature. And it will lie well for
those who aspire to legislative honors to
make up their minds how they will
atand on the subject before they como
before the people; for they are likels
to he called upon to define their pom
tion. We have long thought that it was
not consistent with true republicanism
for the people to elect the officers of two
grand divisions of the government IiCf
islative and Executive and requiro
those of the third to be appointed, by
the Governor.
