The Nashville American of
laat
Sunday contains the following:
"It is rumored that all the colored
land-holders in and near Celina re
ceived notices from unknown parties
within the last ten days to leave the
State within a short time. Quite a
number of them crossed the river at
Celina the thirtieth ultimo, to hunt a
new land of promise. They seemed
to know who the parties were that
had given the notice, but refuses to
give the names through some fear of
harm. Josh Hil), Reuben Hill,
Tobias Stone, Will Dock and Bill
Stone, all land-holders, and most of
them heads of families, were among
the number to croea the river Wednes
day morning last. About three yeara
ago the colored people above referred
to built a church near Celica, and
about the first of last July they estab
lished a school in eaid church. Some
time in July the church was burned
down by unknown incendiaries. The
colored people then established their
school ia a little log cabin upon the
side of the mountain, about the first
of September. About tjie last of the
same month the house was one night
discovered to be on fire. Josh Hill
and Jim Thomas colored, both were
llred upon by unknown parties, and
compelled to ilee for their lives. Attorney-General
Snodgrass had a number
of witnesses summoned before the
grand jury at the last trrm of the
Clay County Court, but failed to elicit
anything more than general facts, and
was not able to fix the responsibility
on any one."
This is a great outrage, and if our
State Government can not protect
their men, It U unworthy of respect.
In the October and November elections the Republicans
have carried Connecticut, Illinois. Iowa, Kansas, Maine,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hamp
shire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ver
mont and Wisconsin. These States have 197 electoral votes.
It requires 185 to elect a President. The political skies are
bright, and inflation Democracy is doomed.

eager, but taken together
with what we receive through our
exchanges, enough is known
to say that Tuesday's election
resulted - gloriously for the Re
publican cau3e. We have car
ried New York on the State tick

can Congressmen, and elected a
Republican Legislature.
Pennsylvania, Michigan, Il
linois, Kansas, Minnesota and
Wisconsin have all gone Repub
lican by increased majorities. It
is a victory of which the Repub
licans may well feel proud, and
one that will spread consterna

NEW YORK.
New York, Nov. 7. Judge Hil
ton rushed into police headquarters
this morning greatly excited, and
held a consultation with Inspector
Dilkes. He stated that the body
of A. T. Stewart was missing from
its resting place in the family vault
in St. Mary's Church yard, Stu
gresant Place and Second Avenue.
The vault, he said, had been
broken open. The casket wa3 found
in the vault, but the body was miss
ing. Inspector Dilkes at once sent
out the following general orders to
all precints :
The remains of A. T. Stewart
were last night stolen from the
family vault in St. Mary's church
Yard. The casket was found broken
and the body removed. The decom-
position ot the remains is so
offensive that they can not be con
cealed. This is apparent from
standing at the opening of the vault
this morning, consequently it can j
not he taken across the ferries
without discovery. cause a
diligent search to be made in your
precinct, as the remains were evi
dently stolen with the hope of re
ward. GEORGIA.
Atlanta, Nov. 7. Governor
Colquitt's annual message w as read
to-day, showing that tho finances
of the State are in a very satisfac
tory condition. The balance in the
Treasury October 1st was $295,
789. No State, in his opinion,
should have a stronger financial
reputation. He recommends the
establishment of an Agricultural
College in the old Capital building
at Milledgeville. He speaks fa
vorably of the common school sys
tem, and advises a sale or long
lease of the Macon and Brunswick
Railroad. He defends at some
length the State's endorsement of
first mortgage bonds of the North
western Railroad Company. There
is no allusion to Federal affairs.
OHIO.
Columbus, Nov. 7. Governor
Bishop pardoned James D. McCoy,
alias Richard Roe, the notorious
bank burglar who was serving out
a sentence of ten years. Roe is of
a good family, and was recently
left a large estate by the death of
his lather.
THE EAST.
London, Nov. 7. The Manches
ter Guardian s London correspond
ent says : " Before the plenipo
tentiaries left Berlin Lord Beacons
field and Count Andrassy signed
the treaty, providing if Russia
should endeavor to remain on Tur
kish territory after May, 1879,
England and Austria will insist on
her complete withdrawal. If Rus
sia should urge that Turkey is una
ble to protect Christians, owing to
the disturbed state of affairs in
Roamelia, England and Austria
will furnish a garrison to relieve
the Russians. The purport of this
treaty is communicated to Russa."
Leopold Rouke, German histori
cal writer, is dangerously ill.
What Alcohol will Do.
It may seem strange, but it is
nevertheless true, that alcohol reg
ularly applied to a thrifty farmer's
stomach, will remove boards from
the fence, let the cattle into his
crops, kill his fruit trees, mortgage
his farm, and sow his fields with
wild oats and thistles. It w ill break
the glass out of his windows and
fill them with rags ; it will take the
polish from his manners, subdue hi3
reason, bring sorrow and disgrace
upon his family, and topple him into
a drunkard's grave. It will do this
to the mechanic and the capitalist,
as well as the farmer, for in its
deadly hate to the human race, alco
hol is no respecter of persons.
How to Study.
Keep the mind bright, and its
powers fixed upon the subject of
study. Take up the lesson with a
firm resolve that it shall be earn
estly and thoroughly sifted, its facts
clearly seen and noted, its teachings
discovered and put away in the
mind, and that nothing shall be al-4
lowed to divert the attention from
the beginning to the end of the
time of study, whether that time be
an hour or five minutes.
Fight vigorously against a list
less, inattentive way of reading over
the words, without considering
what they mean. Never allow the
eye to see and the voice to pro
nounce a sentence when the mind
receive no idea whatsoever from the
words or phrases which are read.
If the mind can not be held closely
lor a ioDjx time to any one
ri in re
still insist that tor the time n pro
fesses to be looking inta the lesson
the attention must be Hvited upon
that one tluD, and very oth fro
thing must be shut out. Retter
study thus with an undivided attens
tion, for ten minutes, than to spend
three times ten minutes in pretend
ing to studv, while the mind is
allowed to ramble to the "ends ot
the earth." . Good habits in study
are more important when wo are
searching after heavenly wisdom
than when we are seeking for
earthly knowledge.

Personal,
Rtv. Dr. Ja9. Tark, aud Messrs.
Brownlce and Cooley, of this city,
Rev. E. A. Ramsey, of Mary ville, and
others went up yesterday evening to
Morristowu to attend the Svnod of
Nashville, Presbyterian Church,
which met there last night.
Mr. X- Bogart, of Philadelphia,
came up yesterday evening and is at

Mr. Torn F. Tutley, who has been in
the city several weeks as a yellow
fever refugee, left yesterday, returning

Mr. J. M. Anderson, came over yes

Co , millers, of this city.
We failed to note the departure, on
last Tuesday morning, of Mr. S. F.
Goodykoontz and family, who left for
VVaukon City, Iowa, to take up their
future residence. Mr. Goodykoontz
was an enterprising citizen and one
whose loss will be felt in the commu
nity, while his accomplished daugh
ters, Misses Myra and Stella, by their
affable and genial manners, endeared
themselves to all with whom they
came in contact. They were joined
here by Miss Dora Goodykoontz, of
New Market, who goes to spend a year
with her brothers of that place. They
have a host of friends here whose best
wishes they carry with them to their
new home.
Daatftrontty HnriiMl.
About half past saven o'clook yes
terday evening Julia Donahoe, a
young lady about 16 or 17 years of age,
living on Park street, North Kncx
ville, met with a serious accident by
burning. She was in a room by her
self where a coal fire was burning in
the grate, and raising up to
reach for something on (be
mantle piece, her clothing
caught fire and flamed up at a furious
rate. She was panic-stricken, and not
knowing what to do, ran screaming
out through the yard to the street, her
velocity just adding fuel to the flames
until she was entirely enveloped.
Her cries and the fire attacted the
attention of her brother-in-law, Capt.
Wm. Kerr, and his wife, who were
jus' across at Donahoe's store, and
they rushed to her relief, and by pres
ence of mind in gathering some bed
clothes and wrapping around her suc
ceeded in smothering the (limes before
they bad reached her head and face.
She was badly burned about the body
and limbs, however, and her clothing
burned almost entirely off.
Dr. Ludlow was summoned and
rendered all the attention possible, and
at midnight she was resting some
what easy, but her condition
was regnrded as very critical. She
was the youngest sister of Johnnie
Donahoe, of the firm of Shea & Don
ahoe, who were burned out a few
months since. We trust that with
careful nursing and attention she may
recover from the terrible accident.
Mrs. Kerr had one hand badly burned
In her heroic efforts to save the life of
her si iter.
Brlitol as a Vatrlmonil Mart.
Oar neighboring town, the far famed
Bristol-bn-the-lihe, is making for her
self quite a reputation of late as a mat
rimonial mart, especially for the rail
road boys. Whenever oa of them
wants to marry, which is of frequent
occurrence, it seems that they make
straightway for Bristol and have no
trouble in making up a match. As it
now stands only one baggage master
on the line remains unmarried Dick
Tearwood the last two having taken
Bristol girls in the past two days, and
it is said he fonnd her on the last visit.
Bristol certainly has her complement
of pretty, marriageable girls, eo that
the rest of the boys need not be dis
couarged and think there is no chance
for them.
The Republicans have carried
enough States in the October and
November eleotions to insure them a
majority of twelve in the Electoral
College in 1880. And yet the Knox
vllle Tribune brings out that same old
rooster that ha been whipped so often.

Court llonse Repairs.
Mr. James Cotton, sr., who was em
ployed by chairman T. W. Kearns
completed the job of raising the floors
in the two court rooms of our court
house. There was a swing of about 7
or 8 inches at the middle pillars,
caused by the settling of the founda
tion. The lower floor was brought to
a level by jacking up the sleepers, and
this settled the upper floor back
to its uatural position, aud
improved the appearance of things
wonderfully. Esq. Kearns has also
had three large iron bolts run through
from bide to side, whici will make the
walls perfectly stfe, and with a little
plastering overhead and some finish
ing touches inside the old affair will
present a very creditable appearance
yet. Some new windows will be put
in aleO, and other necessary improve
ments, the entire cost of which will
not exceed $103 peihaps, and will put
the court rooms iu very good shape.
