The Morristown Gazette.
Wednesday Morning, July 2. 1873. Our exchanges are full of accounts of the incessant raius tlt harv lately fallen. A genius has invented a shirt col hrer to which hraces arc attached for Striding up the trousers. Twelve thousand people have fled from Nashville as they would have done froi the wrath to come. Tt is said that nearly three-fourths f the deaths which have occurred at Nashville from cholera were among Site colort? people. . ' Congressman-elect Smith of North Carolina has published a letter favor ing the absolute repudiation of the State debt of over $31,000,000. Somebody asks, "what is home without a cradle?" Hang the cradle. It'& the little rip in the cradle that generally makes home howl. There is a man in Gibson county named Hog wood, twenty-four years of age, who weighs forty-five pounds and is just forty-four inches high. Thrc- are nine railroads in opera tion in West Tennessee, and eleven others in course of construction or in contemplation. The United States officers arc said to hate the Mormons heartily in L'tah. They are going to make an effort to have legislation against polygamy. The envious rascals ! A fellow shot Miss Wood, in New Hampshire lately just because she didn't marry him. That she Wood might have been living yet, but that she woodiit. The married ladies in a western city have formed a '( 'ome-Home-Husband Club.' We will imagine it is 4 feet long and has a brush on one end. Kd. II. Taylor, late associate edi tor of the Brownsville Bee, has gone on the "editorial staff" whatever that may be of the Knoxville Press uud Herald. Ott Tuesday night the 17th nit., Mr. Marston, a noted sto k miser of Knox county, bad eight of his sheep killed by dogs, one of them being the ram which drew the first premium at the last Pair. In a case where a railway ticket was refused because offered after the day it was issued, a law court in Maine has decided that such ticket is good for six years. Statistics show Georgia to be the leading Southern Baptist State, both fu respect to contributions and num bers, one in every eight of the pop ulation, it is said, being a Baptist. The local of the Memphis Appeal Bays- a family e-f four persons on Thursday of last week, about six miles Northwest of Memphis, ate ravenously of raspberries, and were every one dead within twenty-four hours. James Burnett shot twice at Capt. Riggs in Kingston a tew days a go. but did not hit him or anybody else on the streets, lie paid $15 for ma king a target of Capt. Biggs in the streets of the town. The company who have been ma king excavations in search of coal near Johnson City, in Washington county, Tennessee, were rewarded a few days ago by striking a rich vein of the linest coal, which burns brilliantly. Big fires seem to be the order of the day in these times, all over the world. The last news from China brings an account of a fearful con flagration at Hong Kong, which burnt forty-four acres of booses and left thousands of people homeless. Two little boys iu the neighbor hood of Memphis Sunday before last ate inordinately of plums, and both died by the roadside within a hun dred yards of the trees, where the plums grew. Of such things come cholera. The prohibitory law :is a temper ance measure, appears to be a failure in Massachusetts. It is reported that the daily arraignments for drunkenness are larger than at this time last year, when the sale of lager and ale was allowed. The South would not have failed, says Henry A. Wise, had the Mis sissippi run cast and west, instead of up and down the continent. We tried our best at Vicksburg to cor rect the error, says and exchange, but the pesky thing will run so. The Charlottesville, Va.. Chronicle says: Since the introduction of the domestic grape wines in this com munity, we learn that the sale of 6trong alcoholic drinks in bar-rooms has diminished greatly, and that the use of these wines has proportion ately increased. This looks as if th wine-growers were friend of temperance. . i "Do They Know What Thi'j learn." The closing of the schools for the summer vacation, suggests the cap tion of this article as a text for the Philadelphia Ledger to predicate some ver3r sensible remarks upon. It says the review and examination are supposed to exhibit the progress made, and the average result is usu ally accepted as satisfactory to all concerned. It is perhaps a trifle early to be thinking of the next term and its exercises ; yet ambi tious pupils and conscientious teach ers may spare, even in vacation, a thought upon what is the main con cern of their lives. The examina tions are suggestive ; and it may be worth while for the scholars to in quire. "What do we really know?" The teachers may ask "What have we really taught?' Memory is a powerful faculty, and is capable, upon uncommon and ur gent occasions, of being crowded up to extraordinary performances. Es pecially is this the case at examina tion times. The multiplicity of text books, in all departments, from the primary upwards, covers a larger va riety of subjects t!an our grand-parents ever thought of, and the rapid ity and correctness of the answers of the majority of pupils is really something wonderful. But ques tions not in the examination routine remain still to be answered : and those questions are stated above. In arothcr form the inquiry may be stated : How much of all this ap parent proficiency is mere mechani cal or rote work, not founded on ac tual knowledge? How much is the product of the weary work of mem orizing, with no expectation of being retained for any purpose beyond that of passing a successful examin ation ? The familiar word cramming"' suggests itself to all who have had experience in examination or in being examined. School books are collections of results worked out and presented to the learner, not so much as aids to learning as to be mem orized as knowledge. Too main' branches are attempted at once to permit thoroughness in anv. Teach- I C mf era rely too much upon the text books, and pupils are encouraged in a parrot-like performance, which dis penses with substance provided the words be correct. Let any adult try to read a book which is full of ill understood, unfamiliar and technical expressions, and how many ideas will he gather from it? If he is re solved to master the subject, and commits the "unknown tongue" to memory, what has he gained, except increased labor? New let him turn to some one who is really versed in the subject, and who can present it to him in intelligible, though per haps redundant expressions, strictly considered, and he will learn more in half an hour than he could from the book in a week. The great qualities for teachers are thorough knowledge of the sub ject they undertake, and a capacity to impart their knowledge to their pupils ; in other words, to interpret to young minds the information which the text look must necessarily present in a condensed and contract ed form. If, in every school, a por tion of the time now required for study, that is to say, as is usually understood, mere memorising, were occupied by familiar conversational lectures, explanations and "helps over hard places," the result might not be so showy, but would be much more practical, useful and permanent. i . -j kt'tituiky. A special to the Cincinnati En quirer sa'S : "The arrest at Owingsville, yester day, of one Low Hagar, who has con fessed the names of eighty mem bers of the Long band of despera does, and of which he has been a member. He says this line of rob bers and thieves extends from Pen dleton county through Kentucky and Virginia into North Carolina. A man named Satterfield was arrested at Owingsville on his information, charged with setting that place on lire. Amphibious. We are asked a dozen times a day if the "prevailing disease" at Nash ville and Memphis is Asiatic cholera. Some contend that it is : others die tatorially and positively that it is not ; while a third class dubiously shake the head and are wisely reticent. Almost every one remembers the fellow in the menagerie, who, when asked if a certain animal was amphib ious, replied. "Amphibious ! Thun der, yes ! Eat a hog in a minute !" The reader can make the application. We have no opinion on the subject. t -- A drunken fell, w got kicked out of a saloon in IJattlc Creek, Michi gan, on "circus day," and took his revenge by mounting a dry goods box and delivering a temperance lecture to a large crowd. It is asserted that owing to the careless changing of two labels by a Peoria clerk, an old lady in that city has been swallowing a rheumatism liniment three times a day ; and an old gcntlemau has rubbed himself with blue pills until he can slide up .and down the side of a house when the weather changes like a thermometer. Counterfeit and "Genuine" Paper Dimes. Tbe iioston Tra alter says; Coun terfeit paper dimes are in circulation. What's the ditl'ereuce between a counterfeit dime and a genuine dime? You can't get cash for one and you can't get cash for the other. So there is no difference. The counter feiter will not redeem his paper, and Government will not redeem its pa per. 'Tis much of a muchness, both kinds of paper being worthless. There is a sort of belief that the Government paper will be redeemed, though it rests upon nothing but hope, that most deceiving of all de ceivers. It is probable that but a small part of our smaller currency ever will be converted into cash, as much of it will be lost, in various ways by wearing out, by being drop ped and trampeled upon or blown away, by being burned, and by being pronounced counterfeit when it is genuine. All this will be gained by (iovernment, and it will be lost by the poorest members of the working classes, for whose sufferings neither governments nor politicians care any thing. Had any regard been paid to the welfare of those classes, and had justice been done, all our small cur rency would have disappeared six years ago. Its existence is a reflec tion on the country's sanity, and in every way it is a calamity. The Use of llstern Water. The Gallatin Examiner has this to say about the use cistern water : "We have often called the at tention of our citizens to what we regard as a well settled fact that those who habitually use cistern water are nearly, if not entirely exempt from attacks of cholera. All the experience and information that we have leads us to this con clusion. During the prevalence of the epidemic in Nashville in 1840-50 it was often remarked. During the present visitation, although it is raging in Nashville, Edgefield is exempt from its ravages, and we understand that not a single case has originated there, although a few have died there who contracted it in Nashville. We learn, also, that there is like experience in Memphis." An uncomfortable paper for the Administration is the New York Sun. It continues to probe and expose the ulcers and sore spots in the rhinoceros-hide of "the party" ami its model President ; and the damaging character of its para agraphs on the President's personal habits and his avarice, is derived from the fact that the truth of the alle gations cannot well be denied. The Sun occasionally returns to a favor ite "sore spot" in the history of the "Assistant Secretary of State," and speaks of "the evidence published by the Legislature of Massachusetts, proving that Mr. Bancroft Davis, when director and counsel of the Erie Railway Company, took a $00, 000 bribe to betray that company in a contract with another railroad." What if he is a bribe taker? asks this hornet of an editor ; is that a reason why Grant should not pro mote him? The First District. The canvass for Congress in the First District is about commencing at least it may be so inferred from an elaborate editorial in the last Jonesboro" Herald and Tribune. The writer says there is a multi plicity of aspirants, and exults in the belief that there is an abun dance of talent up that way for any oilice in the world from village hog-reeve down to the Presidency of the United States. Also, that a Congressman's salary of $7,500 a year is pretty good pay, to say nothing of the chances for per quisites. Athens Post. (jiood Sense. Dr. Frank A. Ramsey publishes a communication in the Knoxville Chronicle, in reference to cholera. We are not the least interested as to the name of the disease, but the communication contains one remark sensible and important enough to be printed in every paper in the coun try. The Doctor says : "Winter is the time to cleanse a town. Just now every shovel of dirt uncovered to the sun is a focus from which disease eminates. Cover the flth dteiier rather than turn it over, and, except when absolutely neces sary, let foundation, building and street excavations remain unaccom plished for a while." Death of lion. Jas. Muiiins, The Shelbyville Commercial of yesterday, 27th, says : Hon. James Mullins, Revenue Collector for the 4th District, and formerly Repre sentative in Congress, died in Shel byville yesterday at noon of cholera. His son. II. C. Mullius, though in a dying condition lor twenty-four hours, was thought to exhibit favor able symptoms. A stuffed eagle, seated on a ballot box is reported to be the most con spicuous object in the American de partment of the Vienna Exposition. Exchange. A "stuffed" ballot-box located on the eagle would have been a better representation of the "freedom" of Americans in thece latter dayp, we phould think. Senator Cooper. From the Athena Post. We don't quote the following from the Memphis Appeal because we ap prove the use of such language in reference to a respectable gentleman who holds a high position in the ser vice of the State, but rather to let our readers see what a prominent West Tennessee journal has to say about a Senator who owes his eleva tion to We3t Tennessee votes and influence. The Appeal says : Cooper has filled his seat for two years and has been as dumb as an oyster. He sits erect in his seat like a block of wood, but his head seems to be as devoid of brains as the boots upon his feet. No man in the United States Senate ever made such a barren and empty record. He is as stolid as Vinnie Ream's statute of Lincoln, and as useless as Beau Hickman. He debates noth ing, proposes nothing, and is as in consequential in all things as the cushioned chair on which he lazily wastes his worthless life. In order to show his poverty-stricken charac ter, and the utter want of ability, we intend to sift the chaff of the Con gressional debates to see how many grains of wheat we can winnow from Cooper's record." The Knoxville Chronicle copies this paragraph from the Appeal and says : "This is the man taken up to beat Andy Johnson, because Andy had been loyal to the Government." Ain't the Chronicle slightly at fault in its deduction? Wasn't Mr. Cooper just as loyal to the Govern ment as Mr. Johnson or any other man? And didn't that good man and invincible patriot, Brownlow, while Governor, appoint Mr. Cooper to a judgeship? If we are wrong here we would like to be corrected. Mr. Johnson was defeated through the defection of some his "loyal" friends and the bad management of others of them. That's what ailed Miss Hannah on the occasion refer red to, and not the piles as our Knoxville cotemporary intimates. The shot that brought the ex-President down was not fired from a rebel jrun. Louisiana Movement. A movement has been initiated in Louisiana by Gen. Beauregard and other leading Conservatives having in view the harmony and concert of action between the two races. The Republicans suspect the movement and the Conservatives appear to be bewildered. The resolutions to which Gen. Beauregard's name is ap pended are said to be the strongest yet put forth from any conservative quarter, and almost smack at social equality. They contemplate "the unification" of the people of Louis iana, "of whatever race, color or re ligion," the common right of all to frequeut all places of public resort, to travel in all public conveyances on terms of equality, etc., and of fices of trust and emolument are to be distributed equally. This seems to us to be putting the bottom rail on top, but then it is said to be the only way the carpet-bag thieves can be put down. Shad in The Uolston. Major R. Ilaller, conductor on the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Rail road, distributed a large number of newly-hatched shad in the rivers along the line of the road Tuesday, and some of them were put in the river here. Should the experiment to acclimate this popular fish to our waters succeed, as we hope it may, it will be a most important achieve ment, and will be followed with the introduction of salmon, pike and other good fish. Marion ( Fa.) Patriot. We learn from Mr. John Miller, of Flat Gap, Hawkins county, that his neighborhood was thrown into con siderable excitement, on Saturday before last, caused by a little son of Jesse Mills, Esq., wandering off in to the mountain and getting lost. Every one in the neighborhood turn ed out to search and on Sunday eve nina the little fellow was found about five miles from home. Of course there was more rejoicing over the return of that little sheep than all the rest of the family that was safely housed at home. Texas. A dispatch from Brenham, Robeson county, says : The daily rains for the past month have nearly ruined the crops in the country. The plan ters are unable to keep down the weeds, and a great portion of the land in cultivation is abandoned in consequence, The Knoxvilie Whig. It is stated that the Knoxville Whig is to be resurrected, under the auspices of the Brownlow family, with Col. John B. as managing editor. The necessary arrangements are said to be making, and the. paper is ex pected to be well under way befoe the commencement of the next State and Congressional canvass. These postal cards put a man at the mercy of his waggish friends as well as his malignant enemies. A Philadelphia merchant, of strict hon esty and exact business habits, was informed the other day, per card, that if he did not settle that small bill for washing, Miss Mul lony would bring suit therefor be fore an alderman. A Michigan Humorist. Detroit has what it calls a funny man. An old man named Grerr. who mends furniture for a living, was sitting in his shop recently, when a stranger entered and asked the loan of a dollar. Gregg was startled by the impudence of the request, and the stranger began laughing uproar iously and shut and lxlted the door. The stranger then took off his coat, rolled up his sleeves and stepped up and seized Gregg by the hair and lifted him up a foot or so. Gregg attempted to call in the police, but the funny man seized him by the throat and nearly choked him to death. "Why don't you laugh?" said the stranger, saying which he began to twig his nose. A stair-rod then came into requisition, Gregg being constantly requested to laugh. Seeing that his life was in danger he did laugh, but it was not a hearty laugh, and according the stranger began hitting at his feet with a hatchet. A pair of shears were then procured, and the man began cutting off his hair, until his victim was left bald. He then cut off the man's whiskers and tickled his feet with an old curiycomb, threatening to stab Gregg if he made any alarm. Grow ing tired at last, the stranger said he guessed he would go. He was not in need of any money, he said, but he liked to meet a man who could appreciate fun. and he went out. The carpenter was alive at last ac counts, but the funny man is still at large. It is thought that the case is one of emotional insanity. The Funding Dill. The funding bill passed by our re cent Leaislature is receiving the un mistakable condemnation of the peo ple from all quarters, and in a lan guage that cannot be misunderstood or misinterpreted. There was a pub lic meeting held in Shelbyville on the 2d ult., which was composed of the best citizens of Bedford county, irrespective of party affiliations, and they gave expression to their feel ings in a language that is as plain as English can make it. The follow ing is a part of the proceedings of that meeting : Resolved, That while we disclaim the intention of repudiation, we hold the people are not morally bound, under the circumstances, to burden themselves to the discomfort and im poverishment of their families, in order to make prompt and large pay ment of interest to speculators hold ing our depreciated bonds, depre ciated by events uncontrollable by us, and morally wrong by so doing, to shirk and throw upon our poster ity an entire debt created by our selves, whether properly or improp erly, but for our real or imaginary present wants. But we will pa' both principle and interest as fast as we can in justice to ourselves and duty to our children. Resolved, That we believe an ex tra session of the Legislature has become a necessity, through the failure of the assessment law, to meet the expectation of its authors, we therefore pray his Excellency, Governor Brown, to assemble the same at an early day, calling atten tion to the subjects mentioned in these resolutions. . The Cholera. There has been but little, if any abatement of this disease, at Nash ville, since our last issue. The num ber of deaths have ranged from twenty-five to fort3T-odd per day. Our latest advices are to the effect that the disease is more fully under the control of the physicians than at any time heretofore, and hopes are entertained of its disappearance at an early day. Gallatin has suffered heavily from the scourge, some eighty or ninety persons having died there from the cholera. Lebanon. Springfield, Mur- freesboro' and Shelbyville have all been visited by the disease, and at Chattanooga several deaths have oc curred from it. The .Washington Chronicle, edited by Harlan, and a supporter of Grant, having nominated Captain Jack for the Presidency, thus refers to his similarity to Grant : "Captain Jack has all the elements necessary for a popular candidate. He is course, brutal, ignorant and vicious. There is no discount on his pluck, while his hands are stained with blood shed directly by himself, and not by proxy. We do not know as to his family, but doubt not that it is extensive and incapable." A very enterprising miner has discovered a wonderful mine in Vir ginia, which for variety of deposits beats anything hitherto known in geolog It contains mica, silver ami asafcetida, with some indications of petroleum, etc. A few more strokes of that miner's pick will develop rich deposits of ice-cream, ostrich feathers, point lace and Old Bourbon. One of the curiosities at the Vien na exhibition is a German trans lation of Homers Iliad in steno graphy, by Prof. Schreiber, of Vien na. It consists of six hundred microscopic pages, condensed into so minute a compass as to go into a nutshell. An Atlanta doctor advises per sous afraid of cholera to stand on their heads for one minute three times a day. lie argues that this arrests abdominal depression, and would be a healthful, gymnastic practice at any time.

The startling drawback on nearly all medicinal agents has ever been that iu their process of pur gation and purification they have aN i debilitated the system. To obviate this difficulty physicians have long sought for an agent that would PURGE. PURIFY AND STRENGTHEN AT ONE AND THE SAME TIME. Their research has at last lieeu rewarded by a dis covery which fully realizes the fondest desires of the medical faculty, and which is justly regarded as the most importaut triumph that I harm cy has ever achieved. This importaut desideratum is Dr. Tutt's Vegetable Liver PUL Which purify the blood and remove all corrupt hu mors and unhealthy accumulations from the body, and yet produces no weakness or lassitude whatev er, but on the contrary tones the stomach and in vigorates the body during the progress of their op eration. They unite the heretofore irrecouciliablw qualities of a STRENGTHENING PURGATIVE and a PURIFYING TONIC. ltr. Tutl's Pills are the most active and search ing medicine in existence. They at once attack the very root of diseases, and their action is so prompt thai in an hour or two after they are taken tho pa tient is aware of their good effects. They may bo taken at any time without restraintof diet or occu pation ; they produce neither nausea, griping or debility, aud as a family mediciue they have uo rival.

Is the tnobt powerful Cleanser, strengthener and remover of Glandular Obstructions known to Materia Medica. It Is specially adapted to constitutions "worn down" and debilitated by the warm weather of Spring and Summer, when tho blood is not in active circulation, consequently gathering impuri ties from sluggishness and imperfect action of the secretive organs, and is manifested by Tinners, EruptiouB, Blotches, Boils, Pustules, Hcrof ula, 4c,, Ac. When weary and languid from overwork, and dullness, drow.viuess and inertia take the place of energy and rigor, the system needs a Tonie in build it up and help the Vital Forces to regain their recuie.rative power. In the heart Of Summer, frequently the Liver and Spleen do not proporly perform their func tions ; the Uterine aud Urinary Organs are inactive, producing weak ess of the stomach and intestfeice and a predisposition to bullous derangement. EXTRACT OF JURUBEBA is prepared directly from the sou th Ameri can PLANT, and is peculiarly suited to all these difliculties ; it will cleanse the VITIATED BLOOD, strengthen the LIFE-GIVING POWERS, and RE MOVE ALL OBSTRUCTIONS from IMPAIRED AND ENFEEBLED Organs.
