We give place to tbe above from gentleman who eeems to think we have overstepped the bounds of truth; indeed, says as much, with the temper of a Wufl' Englishman, who says what he means and what be believes. "We answer him as follows: First. Tbe Irish of tbe present day are sufferers, as we said in the artlole complained of, from centuries of op pression; centuries of purposed and ekii fully planned oppression, iramed to stamp out their religion and toldil their manufactures. A century a pro there were five persons employed in the manu facture of silk and woolen goods in Ire land for one now. The great industries which sprang up as a result of the free dom purchased inl"S2;by tbe volunteer movement under Flood, Grattan and Charlemont all were killed by the act of union and tbe intolerant commercial enactments made in pursuance of it. The bankers and merchants of Dublin, and even some of tbe traitors to Ireland, who labored to achieve that most infa mous bond, stated in resolutions passed at public meetings and admitted in pri vate letters, that the prosperity of Ire land from 1762 to 1800 was unexampled in the history of the world. After 1800, what? Ruin, decay and emigration "What is Ireland to-day? A pasture- land for English gentry and British officials. The' criminal statistics prove the general forbearance of the Irish, even under circumstances of steady eviction and enforced emigration. They have come to the conclusion that there is no help for them, not even in "home-rule," and they are turning their steps by thousands to the United States, where "home-rule" is yet observed de spite the tendency at the north to En- lish ideas of centralization of power and influence. To admit our English friend's statement as correct would be to admit that tbe protests of Phillips, Curran and Grattan, the labors of O'Connell, O'Brien, Mitchell and Meagher, and tbe present efforts of Isaac Butt and others, were without foundation in reason. This we cannot do. We know Ireland and the Irish much better than our corre spondent, who, if be would travel among "tbesaints," might find reason tochange his opinion. It is the force of bad laws, of centuries of wrong and oppression, o! stupid customs and class prerogatives that make Irishmen what ttiey are, and will continue to make Ireland an enig ma to Esgttsh ministers until they are done away with, as we believe they will be. Seeeml. Our correspondent.evidently belongs in our "cotton lords' " domin ions. He evidently believes the me chanics of England have no wrongs to redress. If he were a mechanic, work ing at the bench or otherwise, be would think differently. If we are to believe him, Alexander McDonald, president of the Miner's union of Great Britain, Mr. Burt, secretary of the Northumber land Miner's association, and Charles Bradlaugb, the great chief representa tive of the workingmen of England, have nothing to complain of, and are speeding their time in useless decla mation and efforts at amelioration where none is needed. But we know this is not so. "We know there must be some thing wrong where men, women and children labor by thousands for from three to twenty shillings per week, and the mill-owners become millionaires be yond anything we have in this country in ,few .years. There is here a gross inequality between-capital and la bor, made so by laws, some of which vindietiveiy pursue the laborer until for defending his rights be is transported as a criminal, branded with disgrace, out lawed as a felon because be dare assert bis right to demand, in association with bis fellow-workmen an increase over starvation wages. It is yet a fiction in England that capital may combine, but labor never. This, we think and hope, is to be reversed. Bradlaugh and his confreres are at least working to that end, and gaining toward it every day Our correspondent must read upon tbe present movements among the English working classes before lecturing us, and mast not conclude that because Eng lish editors generally know very little about America,'that American journal ists must be darkly ignorant of English affairs. Tldrd. Our correspondent flatters us when he speaks of Memphis as be does; indeed, be embarrasses us. We hardly know what to say. We blush at the comparison be makes for us. But, be knows so much about England and Ire land, and having lived in Memphis, must know whereof he speaks. We will not contradict him in this nor at tempt a reply. Fourth. We remember our friends in England in the days of our trouble. They were few in number, but influen tial and valuable. They did ua good service, for which we need no reminder to be thankful and grateful. But we cannot forget the conduct of the, Man chester mill-owners, nor tbe fast-and loose policy of the British nation which lost to us the active sympathy and aid of all Europe, Fiance at least We do not forget that in Exeter hall began the agi tation which culminated in the destruc tion of the Confederacy, nor that from that hot-bed of all tbe "Isms" there first went forth the brand which, in the uame of civilization, Englishmen and "Yankees" afterward attempted to affix to us who were only the heirs of the sys tem they had established, against the protest of our forefathers, before "inde pendence day had come." We re member all these things, and are grate ful; grateful as the Englishmen and Irishmen whose hands are tied by law, but whose mutterings "'atween teeth" reach us, even here, on tbe banks of the far distant Mississippi; mutter ings which protest against the encour agement of idle princes and the uphold ing of the few at the expenso of the many. God grant it may soon thunder and lightning all along tbeEnglisb, and and Irish and Scottish skies, and that it may soon be in reality as the people's poet has sung, uiai ' "The pnd is but the Eolneajs stamp, A man s a uiu v " CB1UOUB AND AMAZING. The Island of Manhattan, on which New York city now stands, was bought by the Dutch from tlie Indians In 1866 for the trifling sum or MB- The assessed value of wealth on the island in 1S7S Is atwut 8m00O,00O, the real value Is not lew lhan S2,0MMO, and may be even double this, of courie it will bo said thnt the Dutch made a good Investment of their 625, and no doubt they did. But if that Karl luun nn( nt lnt.Ht At fan ,ur COml nn j the first of October, 18M, and the interest Itself ennuaiiy invented at ten per ccuu i Erouuci on ine nrst or uctouer, o-, huuiu ave been S26,580,l9,Sffi! or more than t wonty six thousand millions. This Is three hnndrod times as prcnt ns the assessed valuo of prop erty In New York, and nearly as great os the estimated value of all the property In the United States. Tbe above figures are astounding to one who has never made the reckoning of compound interest a study; but, as stu pendous as tbe sum there mentioned is the actual figures are many, many times greater. Tbe writer of the above made a vast error in bis calculations. Let us figure it up. In calculating compound Interest on a sum tbe principal is to be multiplied by onepZus tbe rate of inter est as often as it has years to run. Thus, $25, at compound interest, for three years, at 10 per cent, per annnum, would be $25x1.10 S27 50, at the end of the first year; 27 50x1.10 $30 25, at the end of the second year; $30 25x1.10 $33 27J, at tbe end of tbe third year, and so on. The same result would be obtained if we were to multiply 1.10 by itself twice (or raise it to its third pow er), and with the result multiply the principal. Hence, to get at the com pound Interest of $25 for 246 years, at 10 per cent per annum, we have only to raise 1.10 to its 246th power and multi ply the product by $25. Now. the quickest way to get at the higher poW' era of numbers indeed, the only way, without enormous labor, is by loga' rithms. Find tbe logarithm of the base and multiply it by tbe exponent of the power desired, and you have the logarithm of the de sired result. Now the logarithm of 1.10 is 0.041,393 (in a table of 6 deci mals). Multiply this by 247 and we have 10.1S2.67S the 10 being tbe characters tic of the logarithm, and showing tbe result to be one more than that number of integrals, or, in other words, that the sum runs into tne tens oj uiousanaa oj millions. The number answering to this logarithm is 15,229,22S,070.18. Let us multiply this sum which is the com pound interestof one dollar for 246 years, by 25, ond we have $350,740,701,754.50, or more than three hundred and eighty billion seven hundrcdand forty millions of dollars a. sum so vast as to be abso lutely incomprehensible to a mind not familiar with the involution of large sums. If this sum were coined Into gold dollars, a half inch in diameter, it would make a belt around the globe at the equater five feet wide! and were these dollars drawn out into a wire one sixty fourth part of an inch thick, it would reach from tbe earth to the sun. It would make a walk, paved with gold dollars, one foot wide, from the earth to tbe moon! If a man were to count sixty gold dollars per minute, had he commenced at tbe Hegira of Ma- hommed (Anno. 622) he would barely have finished when our late civil war broke out in 1S61, counting night and day through a period of twelve hundred and thirty-eight years! at the rate of.$16 per ounce, and 16 ounce? to the pound, there would be over one million two hundred and twenty thousand tons of old enough to plate the globe with an ordinary coat of gold plating! r03 SAKE PEOPLE TO THINK OTEB, General John B. Palmer-is manufac turing cotton goods in South Carolina, and is wonderfully well pleased. The time will come when the experiment he has made in South Carolina will be re peated here with even more striking and profitable results. He says be can make a pound of No. 20 yarn, estimating the cotton at twenty cents, paying freight and insurance to New York, for 29.8 cents. The lowest estimates he has seen of tbe cost of manufacturing yarns at Lowell, including the same items except freight and insurance (the same cotton there costing 22.5 cents) is 34.8 cents. That is, be at tbe south can make five cents a pound more than the Lowell manufac rer can upon the same article, when both sell in the north. Mr. Palmer fur ther compared notes with a manufac turer of cotton yarns in Manchester, who gave him the cost of manufactur ing the same grade of goods there. The result of the Manchester manufacturer's calculation is that a pound of No. 20 yarn (the cotton there costing 24 cents) costs him 35.25 cents. Now if we add freight and insurance from New York to England to the cost of the southern manufacturer that is, 1.5 cents to 29.0S, we find that Mr. Palmer can deliver his South Carolina yarn in Liverpool 4.67 cents a pound cheaper than tbe English manufacturer can offer his own there, If these calculations are correct and Mr. Palmer is a practical manufacturer, and is in earnest there seems good rea son to expect a rapid development of the southern manufacture of southern products, especially cotton. Will the Rhode Island and Massachusetts spin ners demand protection against tbe cheap yarns of foouth Carolina? Why should they not have it as justly as against the spinners of Manchester? not any aonr. of it, as PLEASE YER IIOXORM. We will now have another delightful little discussion of another Ohio "new departure." The people were sickened with this subject long, long ago. The very words beget a nightmare, and he who mounts that hobby will make poor speed in the race of life. This people have other matters to think about than tbe dodges of party leaders in Ohio. They have too many great men beyond the Ohio. While we know it is very troublesome for tbe two parties to pro vide soft places and honorable positions for Groesbeck and the rest, Democrats, Republicans and What-is-its, tbe des perate scramble does not at all concern us or our neonle. We are mainly interested in infusing a 6hare of that enterprising public spirit into tlie people of Memphis and of Shel by county, which will induce tbe selec tion of the best men for all public posi tions at tbe next elections. If we have 6uch local legislators, municipal and county, composed of such materials, Memphis will soon assert claims to that proud pre-eminence among cities of this valley to which nature intended, but divers rings have resolved it never shall attain. We would be pleased to an nounce a "new departure" in tbe modes of thinking and acting that render our chamber of commerce a remarkable body of men and which derogates from the esteem in which this mercan tile community Is held everywhere. Let us have a "new departure," and re produce tne spirit that animated Mem phis in 1S50. AS EltnOBI COBKECTED AND APOLO GY TENDERED. It seems that half the business of the country is done by means of postoffice orders and postal-cards. Most business correspondence is conduoted by means of these cards, and so common are they that they fail to excite even vulgar curi osity, and are as exempt from inspection as letters properly enveloped. Most ed itors are peculiarly blest in this device of the postoffice department. Like that of our ancient friend, Governor Foote, their caligraphy is such that their cards would defy even a Champollion's skill in deciphering hieroglyphics. As stated on a former occasion the postal-cards that come from beneath this fist are un intelligible, save in the eyes of experts. The style of letters made had origin when the hapless child was taught supreme ex cellence in caricaturing the Roman, by copying the Chinese alphabet discovered on a tea-caddy. We have never recov ered from these first lessons in literature, and make this simple statement of facts that an irate correspondent an excel lent and aged minister of the gospel who could not decipher a most pacific note, written by us, may be mollified We wrote that his " letter would appear next Sunday"; he translates it, "your letter is too d d funny," and is mad as a March hare. We hope this full and honest explanation will pacify him, and that he will discover in tbe openness, and publicity of correspondence, con ducted by means of postal cards, the rea son why we do not promise improve- mens in the art of shaping letters. OCR INSANE. The attention of readers is invited to the report of Dr. Allen, superintendent of the county insane hospital, an insti tution which in his hands has proven a positive beneficence, reflecting credit upon our people. It will astonish many of our readers, as it has astonished us, to know that there are and have been so many insane in Shelby county, but, when we remember, as Dr. Allen pointed out in a former report, that owing to our position contiguous to three other States, we are liable to " charges " of this na ture additional to those, as wo might say, natural to us, our astonishment will disappear, giving way to satisfaction that we have been able to meet the de mand, and through one who has his whole heart in his ncble pro fession, and who is a humani tarian in the highest sense of the term, we have been able to rescue so many from the oblivion of insanity, "ffe are very much gratified at the exhibit made by Dr. Alien, and trust that when the wards for the insane, now being fitted up at the poorhouse, are completed, he may be continued in charge of them. The cure of insanity has been a special ty with him for years, and he is held in deservedly great repute by tne faculty, He should therefore be employed by the county to continue his supervision of a class that more than all others appeal: to our sympathies and humanity. AV. C. Steele, in a letter to the Methodist, describing a visit to hear this noisy English preacher, gives some ex amples of Mr. Spurgeon's originality, which, from the manner in which he re lates them, evidently strikes Mr. Steele as something wonderful. And so they are in our opinion wonderfully stupid and Incomprehensible. Here is a speci men: A lady with me remarked to him 'Mr. Spureeon, I think I have discov ered the great secret of your success it is Christ, and Christ only." " Yes," said he. "Iam constantlu strikina on the old piece of iron, aid it is no wonder that it sometimes gets not." Can any reasoning body see the con nection between the "lady's" remark and the divine's answer? In the first place her "discovery" is a very curious one indeed to make of a man whose calling It is to preach "Christ and him crucified." But what earthly or other connection "striking the old piece of iron" has to do with it, we cannot see, If he had replied in the fireman slang, 'Yes, ma'am, I'm red-hot and still neating," lie would iiave made an equally appropriate reply, and one more to the point. The fact of tbe matter is, that some of Mr. Spurgeon's "sayings" ate simply sententious slang, which de serves no other epithet than cant. They wanted to transfer "Wes Allen and other knaves from Sing-Sing Auburn prison the other day, and "Wes" swore he would not go. He does not like sweet Auburn, though the girl on whose testimony he was con victed had locks of that charming color. She was a poor girl, and they called it yellow. When prison-keepers insisted that the gentle " Wes," who is not of kin to "Barbara" Allen of song and story, should go, he lifted the lid of bis tool-chest, and exhibited a gallon of nitro-glycerine. The keepers were shocked, but not half as much as Allen said he would astound them if they disturbed bis gentle dreams and habits of prison-life. "Wes" and tbe ug are peaceful at Sing-Sing. The leading doctors of Louisville agree that cholera generally, attacks people at night or early in tbe morning, and tbe disease occurs only when per sons sleep in the malarial atmosphere. No stranger has slept, and lived, for three hundred years, in the Pontine marshes. People having farms there toil in daytime and leave for the up lands at nightfall. So of yellow fever. No exposure to it, save sleepiug at night in the poisoned atmosphere, begets the sickness. In daytime and sunlight the poisoned atmosphere is innocuous. The Richmond Whig advises "the colored people, who, under the teach ings of the carpetbag leaders, formed themselves on a race line, to abandon that line altogether." But having fought it out on that " line " for so long time, are they likely to abandon it without some good and sufficient reason? Perhaps Beauregard can answer, or the ring that fixed up things for this con gressioual district. For the third time, Trenton has voted favor of subscribing sixty thousand dollars to the Tennessee Central road, to run from Lebanon to Nashville, and thence to Trenton and Fulton, Tenues- ;e, and connect with the Cairo and ulton road. Do Memphis property- holders ever see a map of these States, and of our railway system? The Somerville Falcon tells of the horrible sufferings and death of a negro boy bitten by a mad-dog. His spasms when water or a mirror were brought near him were frightful, and his suffer ings beyond conception. It is curious that negroes have such a madness for dogs. Each one has an average of two. Paris, having four hundred thousand dollars of taxable wealth, is asked to subscribe twenty-five thousand, dollars to the Cairo and Brownsville and Ral eigh and Memphis narrow-gauge road. Surely Paris will meet its obligations to the country, and do this thing. Our Hebrew fellow-citizens will be pleased to learn that, at the urgent re quest of Baron Rothschild in Paris, the shah has agreed to enfranchise the Jews throughout Persia. If the shah's visit to western Europe effect no other good than this, humanity will congratu late itself on the result. Blount Harris, a youth of Paris, Tennessee, saved a train on the Mem phis and Louisville road by standing on the track and stopping the locomotive when he discovered that some villain bad loosened a rail. The new party in Ohio is called the "Pugh party." This name will stick, if thenople can worry it down, till its backis broken, and then they will put j a 'k' in it and uke it up. I TEXAS. From Jefferson 1o ClarksTille bj Stage An Unenilable Experience. Two Model Jehus The California "Whip" Entitled to the Spurs. Paris and Lamar County Statistics of Growth aud Progress Our Com petitors. From our Special Correspondent.1 Clarksville, Texas. July 24 -Be- fore leaving Jefferson, Colonel Bob and myself airreed to look around and ascer tain if we could charter a Pullman sleeping-car, to conduct us to Clarksville, some hundred miles distant. But to our mortification, at two o'clock Wednesday morning, we were hurriedly ushered in to a regular bone-crushing.liver-ihaking, hash-settling, palatial mud-wagon, with red paint stuck on the outside, and black, sleek leather on the inside. The first jerk made was fifteen dollars each for fare to Clarksville, to be conducted by the above named thing, over rocks, roots, ruts and stumps, at break-neck speed, at the risk of broken bones and mashed hats. Sometimes we would be on our seats, but more frequently off; at a collision with one root we would be in the rear portion of the mud-wagon, but at tne next instant a fiuge, rough rut had ejected us "to the front." It is said that quinine will cure the shakes, but a bottle in each pocket will fail on this route of all routes. If you wear a "stove-pipe" it becomes a pro boscis skinning machine by being coerced down upon tnat organ witn a velocity unknown by those who fall to become tne recipients ortnese bumpy ty- tnump mua-wagons. Tne colonel, vou Know, is biesseu witn extremities con siderably elongated, and it was this elongation oi me loiver extremities that gave him so much trouble. He would place them firmly in one position, but in an msrani tuey wouiu be in another. Sometimes he would get them so con- tangly mixed with ours, that it would puzzle an outsider to tell " which from tother." We deeply sympathised with the colonel in regard to those exquisite ly chiseled bean-poles of his for it was a matter of irnDossioility to hold them still, and both would laugh and grunt alternately. i;usuions and springs ap peared to make matters worse, as the springs incre:iseu tue numoer ami ve locity oi concussions, while tne .cushions only oiiereu a deceptive resistance, During that memorable trip we were driven by two postillions, who it would not be easy to forget "Old Pap," the snail-driver, siow, easy, and nothing to say, and "Geno," the California light ning driver, rough, uncouth, wicked and exceedingly talkative. Were you to meet this man in the woods vou would flee for life, his very appearance indicating a terrible man; yet it is saiu, he is quite an innocent man. Me is a real jolly fellow, and all drummers know Geno. We do not like to be bard on our traveling companion, the colonel, but the following little episode is too good to be lost. He is quite a ladies' man and the subject of woman and her charms was .frequently di&cussed. Said he was fond of their society, and these long trips only increased his admiration for them. We had noticed that he fre quently wanted water, and always made it convenient to become thirsty at houses where lie could see a female. After a drive over one of the roughest countries to be round, we saw a nne mansion in the distance; and as we neared, could see several ladies. He was very tired didn't believe he could stand the trip without rest, became very thirsty, his tnroat was luu oi sanu, and was exceed ingly anxious to get out here and rest forty-eight hours. But by much persua sion he was induded to "grin and en dure." lou needn't tell the colonel this, but he wa3 mighty powerful rest ive. Boston yes, we've been to Boston. and gazed intently at its "rhubarbs" as we approaeh the juvenile city. We here enjoyed a fine supper, and were wrapped in the arms of Morpheus on the naked floor, wuen a stentorian voice uttered. "All aboard for Clarksville," and we went. As we enter Red River county tbe soil chances from white sandy to rich black, which extends through the nonneru tier oi counties. Clarksville is a thrivinc town of two thousand souls, supported by rich sur roundings, and as the transcontinental railroad passes through will rapidly im prove. Improved lands are worth from eight to twenty dollars per acre; unim proved, two to five dollars. This county is well timbered and watered. The cul tivation of corn, cotton, wheat and grass, anu me raising or stocK, are very remu nerative. From our Special Correspondent-I Paris, July 26. Paris, the county- seat of Lamar county, contains about four thousand inhabitants, from all sec tions of the country, possessing business qualifications and moneyed capital. It is beautifully located, with cood water. surrounded with timber, m abundance. and as rich lands as can be found in tbe State. Paris is improving very rapidly with large and substantial buildings, private and public, and is destined soon to rank as a city of considerable com mercial importance. She is the center of a large and magnificent section of country, which is being rapidly rilled by immigrants irom the old states. They now claim twenty thousand population for the county, and produce ten thou sand bales of cotton per annum. Tbe Trans-continental railroad connects with the Cairo and Fulton railroad at Texar- caua (an imaginary town not yret located), which extends through (JlarKs ville, Paris, Bonham and Sherman, where it crosses the Texas Central. Thus, you ee, this road passes through the counties oi iiowie, ned itiver, .La mar, Fannin and Grayson, all border ing on Red river and embracing bottom lands of soil as good and fertile as any in tbe State. Add Cooke county to the above and they now produce an aggre gate of fifty-thousand bales of cotton per annum, which will probably be doubled within five years. Now the important question presents itself, where is the natural outlet for all this cotton? what the most accessible commercial point for the merchants of this section of North ern Texas? TaKo Pans as a cen ter, and let us see if Mem- his has any natural advantages: !y rail the distance from Paris to St. Louis is about four hundred and seventy-five miles, and about the same dis tance to Galveston.whileit is only about three hundred and fifty miles to Mem phis. Memphis is the better cotton market of the three, in every respect. She can supply all these merchants with groceries, dry-goods, boots aud shoes, drugs, hardware, liquors, etc., at rates that will compare favorably with the other points. The merchants in this section think well of Memphis, and are inclined to traue there so soon as rail road facilities will permit, which will perhaps be within three months some say in October next. Other questions now arise, ilow can this trade be ob tained by our people? You have the money to buy their cotton; you have the goods to sell their mer chants; you have railroad facilities and the advantage in distance, but these alone will net be sutitcient. lour com petitors' St. Louis and Galveston are first-class in every particular. They are good workers, and spend time and money without stint to obtain trade. St. Louis is, now doing nearly all the business here, via the Missouri, ivausas and Texas railroad to Sherman. You must arouse from your semi-lethargy and go to work in earnest. Arkansas and Texa9 open a large field of opera tion. Clalmthe territory and occupy it Seize upon golden moments, turn every wheel without delay, circulars in abun dance, to tbe tiller of the soil, advertise in papers, cards to merchants, and so licit trade in person, if you can, or by good drummers. Let your business be known, let it not be forgotten, contend for every Inch of ground and labor incessantly to obtain Ft. Big stocks aud cheap prices are not sufficient they are deceptive ideas. You must make up your mtnd to spend money to obtain largo trade, combined with incemnt toll, indomitable will and energy to push ahead. Do this, and you will win; carry out your old-ogy deas, and you win lose. At this time drummers irom ai. jlouis and Louiwille are ramifying every hole and corner of this country, we see them and converse with them every day. Corn, cotton and wheat grow luxuriantly in all these counties, and su perior grass covers tbe prairies, which is being cut by parties ana soiu ai one uoi- lar per load, as much as can be packed on a wagon. This makes a hay stronger and better for stock than any you have In Memphis. All species of veg etables irrow in abundance. Lamar county produced a cabbage last year weighing twenty-one pounds, and a beet weighing nineteen pounds. Paris has two weekly newspapers, and one ktaiiy the Aorth lexan, puonsnea dv a H.

COLLIERYILLE, TENN. The Grand Picnic at LaFayettc Depot A Gala Day Crop Prospects. Fiom an Occasional Corretpondcnt-1 Collierville. July 31. Wednes day last, the thirtieth instant, was the occasion of one of the grandest pic nics of the season, near .Lafayette aepoi, on the Memphis and Charleston rail road. Lafavette is an enterprising and interesting little town of three or four hundred inhabitants, situated thirty miles from Memphis on the road above mentioned. Your correspondent arrived on the ground at ten o'ciock, ana lounu a laree concourse of the light and fan tastic picnickers tripping merrily over the sawdust through tne charming quad rille. Excellent music was discoursed by Frank Delucca's famous string-band of the bluff city. The ground selected for this occasion was several hundred yards distant from the depot, in a beau tiful crove of tall hickory, oak and elm the luxuriant branches of which hung in rich nrofusion overhead, rather inclin inc downward, as if cazinc on the mer ry scene below. The day was pleasantly cool, and a delightful shower on the night previous renuerea aancing ex tremelv fascinatinc. The entire crowi was variously estimated at be tween four and five hundred per sons. iJancing connnuea uniu one o'clock, when dinner was announced which being over, dancing was again commenced, and kept up at a lively rate until five o'clock in the evening, after which hour the extensive group of pic nickers adiournedlsine die, well satisfied that the crand picnic at Lafayette was one of the most enjoyable affairs of the season, and a nappy event which will be recorded in me memory oi many oi the vouth and beauty oi Fayette and Sbelby as one of the most pleasant reminiscences of the past. Many per sons from the two counties were present on the occasion, and quite a number from Marshall county, Mississippi, and other places, were there. We conversed with several intelligent farmers of that section, the substance of which lis as follows: Crops generally are looking tolerably well: corn has suffered to some extent for rain; cotton is looking well, except in bottom lands, where it was nearly drowned out by the spring floods.

Much has beensaid and written about the Unl versity of Mississippi calculated to In jure it abroad, aud as many of the read ers or the appeal are deeply interested in the welfare of this institution, we de sire simply to state a few facts which win snow mat whatever may be urged against the administration of the Repub lican party of Mississippi in other re spects, the university still stands, the pride and glory of the State, and is in as prosperous a condition as ever before, The alumni oi tne university, at their annual meeting last commencement passed several resolutions, among which was tne following: Jletohed. That we heartilr commend the general policy of the board of trustees and lacniiy oi me university, anu nan us success wiin aDounaing pnuc anu pleasure. Who better should Know and appre ciate tbe condition and general man agement of tbe university than her own sons her aiumm who watcn her on ward progress with eager eyes and swelling hearts? Who should be more vigilant and solicitous for her welfare? Yet they native-born sons or the south have given their cordial indorsement of the present management of the uni versity. The chancellor. Dr. John N. Waddell, whose name Is synonymous with honor and truth with all parties aud classes in this country.and who has stood by tbe fortunes of tne university irom its luiancy, still stands by it and defends it. The faculty still retain Waddel, Gar land, bears, Wheat, Qulniche, .Lyon Little, Walton, Juny, Johnson. Whit field. Fulton. Loucrhridge. and Adcer.
