While the flourlsbinr city of Clarksville has the
advantage of a newspaper to Chronicle and herald
forth to the world its increasing business, and to
call attention to It fine building alte-tta excel
lent schools Its numerous churches, and the
many Inducements it offers to men of business and
mechanics to settle in its bounds, the neighboring
town of ' '
quietly and iteadily moving onward, and is
rapidly regaining the position the occupied before
the war," Though notes large and ambitions as
ber sister city, the contains - within herself abun
dant elements of prosperity, and amongst he cili-
tens are to be found some of the most enterprising
and enrgetlc men In, the county.' '
The trade of New Providence, with, the coun-
es of Montgomery and Stewart In this Stato, and
with the adjacent one of Trigg, Christian and
Todd in Kentucky, hi on an extensive scale, and is
mutually advantageous. ,' Fot trading with .these
counties New Providence Is peculiarly well situated.
There are numerous roads into the interior
that concentrate here, and by' stopping here, cross
ing Red river is avoided, so that besides having a
less distance to travel the toll, or fwyings is saved ;
abd further, our communications to the Wei-t
and North are never cutoff by bieh water and
over flowing banks, and which so frequently In
terrupt our intercourse with Clarksville,
Much damage was inflicted on the town during
the war, but the injuries are fast being repaired,
and we hope we shall see before Ion it tobacco and
other, factories rebuilt and started anew. The to
bacco business has always been an important item
in the trade of New Providence, and sales are now
held weekly at the warehoqses. 'The planters are,
to a great extent, resolved to di?po?e of their pro-
uce at home, having become satisfied that it is to
their interest to do so, instead of leading it off Isrl
distant markets, thereby Baying heavy freight and
other charges, particularly the loss in weight at
tendant on long, and often tedious, transportation,
is well as an uncertain delav in netting the re
turns fur their products.) The prices thus far re
alised have proved highly satisfactory to the far
mer, who returns home with full pockets, well
pleased that the old established market is re-
pened. He is able to lay in, ft full supply of the
articles needed by his family lr the town, at the
tores , here now contain full assortments of
every thing needed for plantation up, at your ad'
vertlsing columns will amply testify, though all of
the establishments have not, ayet, availed them
selves of this mode of makinr known their
business. There are several grocery and dry goods
stores in operation with large stocks to select from,
and saddlers', gunsmiths', carriage, wagon ' and
blacksmith shops, are all located here, with at good
workmen at can be fonnd in the country.
To merchants, the town - offers many induce
ments to locate in our midst, and to mechanics
the advantages are very great. Building sites for
business houses, factories, workshops or residences,
are freely offered and can be purchased or leased at
reasonable rates. Water is abundant and there
are several large springs in the vicinity that are
peculiarly well adapted to distilleries, or other
manufactories requiring good supplies of the pure
article. The grades to the landing on Cumberland
river are easy and heavy loads can without diffi
culty be hauled up them. The town and its en
virons are already dotted over with handsome and
commodio'is dwellings, and beautiful and conven
ientsites are to be found inevery direction suited for
the erection of hornet for either the man of large
means, or for those whose tastes or circumstances
require more humble abodes.
But few idlers are to be encountered; the stores,
worshops and factories are all filled with iudus-
trious hands, and the dirty and grotesque aldet of
the contrabands, lately so numerous, are now
rarely to be teen, and the lazy, lounging, idle
negro it but seldom met will). This olass of the
population hat generally found out that to hire
they must work, and thai work could not be ob
tained by crowding round town, so they have, for
the most part, gone off to the country where their
labor is required, and where they could obtain an
honest livelihood. "
There are churches and schools sufficient for the
present papulation of the place, the streets or roads
are good indeed, taken altogether, New Provi
dence, as b toxen, it not, in our estimation, one jot
behind the city of Clarksville in the inducements
It offers to those wishing to settle in a thriving
locality; while fie feel assured that the prosperity
of one plice roust redound to the advantage of th
oUier, when to closely and Intimately connected as
are' Clarksville and New Providence, ' :

Letter From Stewart, County.
Correrpondcnee ef the Chronicle. -
' February S, 18C8.
Mb. Euitor: During V" late war the people of
this county have passed throngh much tribulation
on account or the terrible war-cloud that hat
lowered over them for four long years. , '"
It is known to all who. ever passed through this,
section that there never .sere many whitened tepul-'
hres for the dead, and painted mansions for the
iving were decidedly few in this county, but it It
three-fold worse now.
Dover, the county site, was nearly rained, by the
soldiers. The rharc'iv, font-honsc, jail, and many
other important buildings, were destroyed In the
town, aad the country people suffered the tame
great evil in having many of thnir dwellings burnt,
bnt such calamities are inevitable in civil war. -
Before the rebellion there were over, twenty Iron
furnaces in Stewart, doing regular work, and I be
lieve there it not one in operation now. What
a change is this I The toll, too, sj yon are aware,
it not very productive, the stopping of those ma
chine monsters has greatly paralized the business of
this county, and having to pay the tame revenue
for those works, as they did before they, tho fur
naces, were stopped, it is keenly felt by the
owners of the property. I must not neglect tJ
mention Fort Donelson, the far-famed place, where
the "foot tep" of the demon war, fell heavily,
and around which the smoke of battle curled black
and gloomy four years ago this month. A month
to be ever remembered a day ever to bo set apart
from others, at the day of cloud and gloom to
Tennessee. ; Well that day of "the surrender."
has passed by and now Fort Donelson looks, as if,
indeed, deserted by all wart chivalry, and the
benign influence of refined society, such as every
town could partly boast of before that memorable
year '61 ; that it the society, there th gay glitter
of armed warriors did not then make life appear to
strange and changing! Speaking of society re
minds me that Fort Donelson is now settled by
contrabands, and at I patted through it recently
was reminded of a quotation from Timothy HilP
"rareweu ways tbatjve foreseen I .
Farewell tubs'that have no bacon I .
Farewell old broken chairs and tablet,
Farewell dwellings that are worse than stable !"
A meeting was held in Dover a few days since
by prominent leading men of this county, in which
they expressed themselves at being in favor of con
tinued peace, the policy of the President, and an
equitable administration of the Constitution, of the
United States, and opposed to fire-eater South,
or ice-biters' North ; and if any one wishes to know
any more relative. Wthe sentiments of the Stew-
arlites, let them read the eloquent speech of Mr.
Brandon, our noble representative, recently deliv
ered In the Legislature at Nashville. '' We are loyal
and expect to remain to, but we think we have a
right to our sentiments, or what it best for nt as
a nation. But at I am not a political man, I will
leave that subject to those better inormed. Yet
we hope General Thomas will withdraw, soop, t,he
few colored troops at Donelson. Before leaving
the condition of the county,, let me say it it now
in' tlie scale of gradual Improvement. There are
several stores at Dover, several buildings going up;
we have plenty of goods, plenty of provisions,
plenty of "Petroleum oil hunters," plenty of can
didate for the county officers, so you see we are
beginning to feel like people, as before Mr. Lincoln's
brilliant star arose o'er our nation' horizon, to
shine respluadeut fur awhile, and then lade sud
denly out in a red, ominous cloud. '
You. must not think ths -inhabitants of this
county are of a deranged stale of mind generally,
but there it one old man residing in it, I wish to
speak of. His name is Elbert J. Garrett, living on
the waters of Meatberwood creek. He has been
Methodist preacher for the last twenty yean : nine
oilier and myself visited him a few day since,
and aa we Wire approaching bis house, we divided
into three small squads,' and surrounded the rail-
pen where he usually stay for the purpose of se
cluding himself from all society, and at we n eared
him, be leaped hit pen and commenced cursing us
with great wrath and force. Shall I describe to
you this insane man hit appearance? It wat
wild and rude in the extreme. . He h) above the
ordinary stature of men, if I am not mistaken he
would weigh near two hundred; bis foim long and
muscular ; his height must not be lest than lix
feet; hit breast broad; bit limb gigantic; his ex
terior indicating strength, hermit; one who
dwelt far from the habitation of men; hit cloth
ing very toiled and old ; his hat old and dilapida
tedall bearing evidence that he mingled not in
the common courtesies of civilized life, for his
countenance wat bold and ferocious and quit re
pulsive from it strangely marked expression of
wildness.. Surely in him the ordinary feeling of
humanity are quite extinguished!'! think he
should be sent to the asylum, for be is a fit lutnate
for it, , Somehow the idea ha gone abroad, that
onr'i U a bud county, filled up by set of despe
radoes, who flying from justice, fly here for pro
tection, having recently' traveled from White Oak
to Line Port, and fcom Fort Henry to Weill Creek,
thus traversing nearly th entire county, I am pre
pared to ssy, the idea entertained by people abroad
is false, for a more generous, Industrious, -clevsr
set of people are not to be found this side of your
own. With them, hospitality la hardly considered
a virtue, but duty w hich all snould, and do
cheerfully perform in all ports of the county, more
especially at Line Port and Tobacco Port. And
Lnow hoping th main will toon be opened through
here, nd your paper receive a wide circulation, I
bid you adieu. , . DOVKR ROVER.

versary of the birthday of the Father of hi Coun
try, to be a proper occasion on which to assemble
in Mass Convention, for the purpose of declaring
their continued devotion to the Federal Constitu
tion, and the Federal Union; and of proclaiming
their earnest approval of thu. policy adopted by
President Johnson in hit patriotic effort to pre
serve the Constitution, and to re-establish the
Union of the State, and thereby to secure, for the
whole country, the blessings of permanent peace
and of republican freedom. Such a celebration of
the day Is rendered peculiarly appropriate in view
of the extraordinary ruistance made by Congress
to tne restoration or tbe Soutnern States to aa
equal participation in the benefit of th Unkwt
and in view of the fact that a small portion of tbe
people or Tennessee, poftetted or an accidental
influence, hi the government, are giving encour
agement to that spirit of sectional (hnatarism in
Congress which bat tbreateoei to paralyse th arm
of the Federal Executive, and which persijt In

come forward to place upon tbe record their united
testimony against the truth of this Imputation of
disloyalty made against tne people of tbe state.
I pon the surrender of the southern armies, the
people of Tennessee accepted the result as a con
clusive settlement of the issue involved in tut
war. By tbe act of laving down their arm, and
surrender! ig to their victorious enemies, the
Southern soldiers acknowledged their defeat, and
pledged their honor not again to renew the con
flict. This pledge wat made in good faith by brave
i ney returned to their bomea, resumed their
peaceful avocations, and have distinguished them
selves by the zeal and energy with which tbey
have prosecuted their various pursuit. ..
The result bad established th Indestructibility
of the Union, by mean of rparate State seces
sion, and hence that tbe several State which bad
sought to form a new confederacy, bad never been
withdrawn from tbe Federal ynion. In thit re
sult the people of Tennessee acquiesced unhesi
tatingly, and bave waited patiently for tbe adop
tion of such measure a would restore them to
their former right in tb Union. In the mean
time they bave submitted, without complaint, to
all tb term and condition imposed upon them as
citizen of a State lately in rebellion ; and have
complied with all tbe requisition by which their
sincere loyalty to the Constitution and tbe I nlon
could oe mode manifest.
Tb delegate to this convention, with a full
knowledge of 4heif responsibility, do not hesitate
to arhrni teat tbe people of Tennessee were never,
at any former time, more sincerely anxious for
the preservation of good order and the restoration
of civil law, nor more earnestly united in their
determination to support, defend and preserve
the Constitution and the Union against all as
saults, open or concealed, domestic or foreign,
than they are at the present time. They areas
ready now a tbey ever were in day gone ny, or,
at are the people of any. other State in the Union,
to pledge tbeir fortune, their uvea, and tpejr
sacred honor, in defence of tbe Constitution and the
la declaring their willingness to maintain th
Constitution, tbey desir to be understood as re
cognizing the '.ale amendment, forbidding tbe ex
istence or Involuntary scrvituoe, as a part.tnereor;
and a avowing their determination to give to that
clause an honest and sincere support. Tbey are
prepared to aid in extending to the free persons
or color such- protection at shall secure to them
the undisturbed enjoyment of all the bleasiqg of
freedom ; ana or conceding to mem ell tne eivu
and political rights that may be compatible with
tne best interests of both races. Tbey Insist, bow
ever, that this subject belong exclusively to the
people, of lus etaie, and that tbe same has not been
irantierred to Congress by the arocndniciil a fore
said. ' They are satisfied that whenever all extra-
neon Influence are withdrawn, the relations be
tween' tbe two race will be established upon prin
ciple of Justice that will be mutually satisfactory
Kntcrtaining these sentiments, the people of Ten
uesae. with Uiinrecendented unanimity, ' bave
observed with unaffected admiration, th wise and
patriotic effort, made by President Johnson, to
secure an eariy and complete restoration or tb
Southern Slate to th Union. By th liberal ex
ercise of Executive clemency.be ha shown that

of brave men. and by re rutins in tbem this gen-
erous confidence, be has won their, hearts, and

The peopl of th (Southern bulla bad .rat-
ponded o promptly and efficiently to wise itigge
tion and the liberal policy of th. President, that
when the present Congress assembled, most of the
States, lately. In rebellion had compiled with tbe
terms and conditions iiKn v. men lueir restoration
to the Union was to be consumntcd. Nvlblng
was then wanting for the effectuating of the great
work of ro-est iblishing the union of all the State
except the approval by Congress of the policy
adopted and carried out by th President. This
approval wat withheld by a dominant majority of
Conines, who ' dare thereby repudiated the
policy of the President,' ignored the existence of
tbe Southern States, repelled tbe Menatort and
Representative from tbe two h11 of Con
great, and usaried the power tQ gorprt the
Southern Slate a conquered provinces. As If to
mak their usurpation more glaringly revolution
ary, thu dominant majority, instead of acting in
accordance with th provifion.of lb Constitu
tion, in tbe matter of admitting th Southern re
presentation, "abidicaivd that high position, and
handed it over to joint committee of nfleen; a
committee which sit with closed doors, which
delilieraU hi tct ret, which shut iuwlf out from

which doe not even desire to give the Inlormation,
it wat appointed to collect, but which sends its
