' AENTH FOR THE lOST.
The following named gentlemen will nut as
agent for tho Post In remitting subscriptions
from tholr tcspectlvo localities:

Thos. Stkimikns, Cartorsvllte, Ga.
Polk County.
Circuit Court for Polk county will meet at
Denton next Monday, the 21st. Several of the
more eminent members of tho Bar at this place
are expected to be present.
Monroe County.
We spent Monday and Tuesday of tho pres
ent week at the county seat of Monroe. Court
met on Monday morning, ami in addition to
the ordinary matters on such occasions, Ills
Honor, as is now his duty, hnd something to
aay about the Kukluxcrs. The law recently
passed Is a pretty heavy one, and If there Is a
man In all thts land and country belonging to
that organization, we advise him to get up and
Kit out of it at once. Loyal leaguers would do
themselves no harm by pursuing a similar
course lu regard to their organization, us sc.
cret political societies are all wrong and can
only exist to the harm and Injury of the pub
lie welfare; aud surely no one who belongs to
the Lcaguo cau with any propriety make
mouths at the Kuklux.
A good many civil eases were continued, as
the lawyers were anxious to get oil' to Knox
vllle to look after their business in the Supreme
Court.
The corn crop in Monroels good, as it is eve
rywhere In Kast Tennessee, and with tho ex
ccptlon of the general complaint of high taxes,
the peoplo seem to he jogging along well
enough, possessing their souls In patience
and waiting for the good time coming when
they may once more dwell In quletudebonoath
their own vino and fig tree, with neither Lea
guers nor Kukluxers to make them afraid
Wo had the pleasure of meeting with a good
many old friends, a number of whom renewed
their former relationship with the Atiiknh
Post, which was always a favorite In that ill
rcctlon. We think in a few months more, not
withstanding Monroe now has two papers of
its own to support, we will be able to work our
list up to the old standard. We thank our
friends for the substantial tokens of eiienur.
agement received during our short stay, aud
propose to show our appreciation by furnish
ing them with a good, readable and truthful
paper.
The Proposed Tournament.
Last week In noticing the Tournament pro
posed to be held at Knoxvillo on tho2nth In
stant, we omitted to slate that the proceeds of
the affair were to be appropriated to caring for
the graves of the Confederate dead. As before
remarked, this is a dutv which has been too
long neglected a duty In which all may en.
gage, but more particularly Is it incumbent on
thoso who wcro identified with or gave aid and
comfort to tho cause in which they fell. They
at least were sincere, and sealed their devotion
with their lives. Their resting places are to
be found In every direction, In many Instances
unmarked and unrecognized, " where the foe
and the stranger tread o'er their heads," and
it will after awhile be a grateful reflection to
all of us that wo assisted In giving thel
ashes decent sepulture in a -nmmon cemetery
A friend at Knoxvillo writes that it is do.
signed the Tournament and Coronation Party
shall be a grand and interesting nflair; and w
trust that a largo number of our friends in
this direction will show their appreciation of
tho noble and praise-worthy object by being
present.
We learu through tho Knoxvillo papers
that arrangements will be made with all the
railroads of the State so,that persons wishln
to attend tho Tournament in that city on the
20th Inst., can obtain excursion tickets from
all points In the Stato, visit Knoxvillo and
return at half price. We trust that thero will
be a full attendance; and we can assure those
desirous of attending, that ample hotel ac
comniodattons will be provided forall visitors,
The Kuklux Rill.
The bill for the suppression of the mythical
Kuklux Klan, passed by the Legislature at It:
recent extraordinary session, contains twenty
four sections much of It tho merest twaddle
but some things tho scope and verge of whic
perhaps three.fourths of tho members who
votedfor it did not full v comprehend. Itisre
ported that some of the best legal minds think
several of the more stringent provisions
reach farther than tho framers of the bill In
tended, and eover, not only tho Kuklux, but
the Loyal Leagues aud tho O. A. 11, two secret
and oath-bouud political organizations known
to havo an existnuoe within the limits of this
State, and to have been productive of an Im
mense deal of mischief. We will not under
take to say how tliut may be until further ad
vised, but will publish the bill entire at an
early day.
Smoke-lIouNe ltulthed.
On last Saturday night some hungry cuss
broke into Jim Charles' smoke-house and
abstracted therefrom tho last pound of bacon
poor Jim had. That happy-go-lucky individ
ual, liowevcr, is not caring much. Ho will in
a few days be In receipt of a supply of Now
and Seasonable Goods, and tbeu midst the
throng of customers which always rush to his
store on such occasions, ho will sonuU'orget tho
reeent raid upon his larder. Mr. Charles In
forms us that tho amount of meat the thief ob
tained was just five pounds and a half, aver
dupolse. Man Miot.
We learn that on Wednesday or Thursday of
last week, a man named Kellcy, living In the
18th' civil district of this county, was shot and
badly wounded by another named Gibson.
We know nothing of tho origin of the difficul
ty, other than that politics had nothing to do
with It.
Lw Curd.
Attention is respectfully invited to the Card
of Geo. W, Bridges, Attorney at Law and
Heal Estate Broker, Athens, Tennessee. Col.
B. has been ongaged in the practice of Law for
Rome years, and Is favorably known not only
in East Tennossoe, but throughout the State.
He now proposes to eulargo bis business, and
has adopted, about the only sensible and cer
tain way to do it making the fact known
through tho columns of the publio Journals.
We again direct attention to his Card.
OTR. 11. 6., Sulphur Springs, has ourac.
knowledgmenta for bis attention, and bis kind'
nest anil partiality are highly appreciated.
The Report of th Committee.
We have Just Incidentally met up with a
copy of tho "Report of the Joint Military
Committee of the two Houses" of the Tennes
see. Legislature, to take testimony about the
Kuklux. It S('ems,to be a compound of mis
representation: and exaggeration, based for tho
most part upon the absurd and Improbable
stories told by negroes who left their homes in
the country and sought Nashvillo to avoid la
boring for A living. If such A condition of
affairs hits been existing In Tennessee which
no satio and candid mind believes It is an ad
ditional evidence of tho Inefficiency of the
present State administration, and a damning
testimony against radical rule. We understand
that largo numbers of this radical Action were
printed at tho expense of tho tax-payers, and
are being scattered through tho country as a
campaign document. They will, however, do
no harm except perhaps to further embitter the
negro against the white man and impel him
onward In the direction of that conflict of
races which now appears to be a prominent
feature 111 the radical programme.
An OversiifEht.
The Legislature committed a grove mis.
take In not, before adjourning, ordering to be
printed a large and Indefinite number of copies
of the Militia Bill, the Kuklux and Currency
Bills, together with n truo transcript , of the
State's liabilities, all In the English and Ger.
man languages, to bo placed in tho hands of
the Immigration agent and by him to be dls.
trlbutcd generally throughout thoso portions
of the country to which he seems to look for
bis immigrants. Reinforced with such potent
Instrumentalities and Inducements, we have
no doubt that gentleman would meet with i
much larger degree ol success thau haB hlth
erto attended his efforts.
Cnnlreirn X IIoihIh.
Jas. C. Carlock, Esq., proposes to sell, on the
17th of October, some valuable lands, situated
immediately In the vicinity of Cantrcll's X
Roads, McMInn county. The lands will be
sold in lots to suit purchasers, at public sale,
on that day if not sooner disposed of. The
neighborhood Is said to be a good one, and
there are other advantages which any one
wishing to purchase will readily sec by visit
ing the place. Mr. Carlock is anxious to sell
and no doubt good bargains can be obtained of
him by caily application.
Holivur female Academy.
We learned while at. Madisonvillo that this
educational Institution, under tho charge of
Prof. Ramsey, Is In a flourishing condition
there being a large number of pupils in at
tendance, who are making rapid progress with
their studies. Professor R. has the reputation
of being nn excellent teacher.
The Male School Is now in progress, with a
competent tcachcrln charge and fair prospects,
No peopl manifest more devotion to cduca.
tlonal Interests than those of Madlsonvllleand
vicinity.
Head the Advertisement.
Tho man who docs not read the advertise
ments in his paper can never be said to be well
informed. .The advertisements Indicate not
only the business enterprises, but of the adver
tiser. When you sec a man who advertises
liberally, you may be certain In finding a good
stock of goods In store; that he keeps up with
the market, and sells cheaper than thoso who
do not advertise. If you want good bargains
always patronize those who avail themselves
of the advantages afforded through tho adver
tising colunimoftheirpapor.
Another Oood .Man 4oue.
We learn from the Richmond Whig of the
1st Inst., that Mr. Win. Sands, for many years
editor of tho Religious Herald, tho organ of
the Baptists In Virginia, died very suddenly
at his residence in that city on the 30th ult., I
the 70th year of his age. Mr. Sands was, In
every sense of the term, a good man modest;
unassuming, child-like, and was esteemed as
such by all who knew him.
A NenNiule Uovernor,
The present Governor of Alabama seems to
be a sensible man, at least for a radical. At
the recent session of the Legislature of that
State, a law was passed requiring the Govern
or to designate one or more papers in each Con.
gresslonal district In which advertisements
aretobubllshed; no advertisements to bo of
validltyinless It appears In a paper thus
named. Under this law, Gov. Smith has de
signated all the papers in the State.
The Mupreme Court.
A gentleman from Knoxvillc states that Mr.
Maynakd had been sworn in as special Judge,
Mr. TltiMm.K will not accept, and Judge
Smith had not arrived. Thero will bo
Court before next Monday if then.
Altogether a lislake.
The ( onimll tee or arrangements for tho ap.
proacinng Tournament, through one or it
mcmiers, sent to our olllcc tho other ilav, as
an advertisement, an announcement of tl
Rules for the government of the Knights, to.
iretner with a list of Mannsrosro tor the oce
slon. Tho advertisement was published just
as it was written, and the proof was read bv
the gentleman who handed it in. In the list
oi managers appeared the names of "Dr. May,
Athens Post," and "Cant. Henderson. Athens
1'ost." We perceive that tho consequential
Editor of a modcratc.sizcd hebdomadal, occa
sionally issued at Athens Post Office, has the
vanity to imagine that somebody was endeavo
ring to rob hiin of the honor of the solo pro
prietorship of his littlo institution.' We are
assured that the Committee were entirely un
conscious of the existence of any such journal.
u was simpiy mcani "Alliens rost iimco."
Wo doubt not tho Committee, at their next
meeting, will be prompt to make all proper
explanations and apologies to Dr. May, and
('apt. Henderson, for this unintentionally of-
tensive association or their names. o none
the liko may not occur again. Knoxville
