The United State Supreme Court

the much disputed qnestion of tho

We have a little 'conundrum lor

the African odor of Kd. Shaw, not
withstanding his deodorization and
anointment by the Democratic high
priests of Memphis, for the mere
ministerial work of testing oils, how
bappei.ed it. only a few months ago,
that this same Governor had such a
"hankerinir" for the perfumes of

what ought to bo the conclusions bf
farmers living in the surrounding
counties? Why it ought to "be to
go to work and open .up turnpikes
through the hills and mountains
that bind them in, to connect . with
the railroad coming to this place,
either here or elsewhere. They
can't get railroads all of them, and
they ought to take the next thing
to it, which would be a good torn
pike, MacAdam, or plank road,
which they can build for $1500 per
mile. .
Very much depends, as regards
the wido extension of the usefulness
of the University of Tennessee,
upon the active interest taken by
State senators and representatives in
the privilege given them by law of
appointing to the institution two or
three students, tuition fiee. It is
truo of the whole State, but especi
ally so of East Tennessee, that it is
becoming known to the world ont
side of it, as it was never known be
fore. Railroad communications be
tweeu this mountain region aud oth
er States are being built or will pro
bably in a few years le constructed.
This region, traversed by fertile and
beautiful valleys and rivers, lies in
the ways between the Atlantic sea
board and tho populous, thriving
cities on the Ohio and Mississippi
rivers and in the Northwest. Chi
cago, Cincinnati, Louisville, St. Lou
is and Memphis, on the one hand,
and Richmond, Norfolk, Charleston
and Savannah, on the other, must,
in the progress of things, have more
railway connections and closer than
they now have, and which can only
be made through East Tennessee.

In continuation of the subject f

words more to say. "We copy in an
oihcr place, from a Missouri paper
suae facts and fiirures relative to
the benefits derived from them in
the country it represents. In are

parison between tho cost to the
farmer of different modes of trans
pvrtation in getting Lis produce to

iu!res into the expense of market-
ing tifty tons at a ioint one hundred
miles distant, along a MacAdam or
turnpike and a railroad. He esti

used, including the personal expen

gentlemen, is one of the reaons why

TLia i one of the reasons of fully as
much Importance. The same beattU?, ia
resources in coal. iron, etc., oi our
mountains must be utilized. Xo
doubt we shall soon enter upon an
era of material movement and pros
perity, which will be in strong con
trast with the i6la:ion and repose
of this part of the land in the past.
How are we going to meet that era?
What are the peoplo doing in the
way of educating their sons, so that
the- shall bo able to stand and do a
wLso, good aud efficient part in the
new condition of things that is com
ing? Jlast Tennessee has been shut
in heretofore, as it were to itself.
Soon, it can be s no more. The ris
ing generation will find itself sur
rounded by circumstances very dif
ferent from those in which their an
cestors have lived and moved ; and
if it is not prepared lor them, it will
have to sink into obscurity and com
parative uselcssncss, or to disappear.
For it is not the mere animal nature
of man, but mind, that guides and
governs society, and enables one to .
bear a worthy part in the conduct
of affairs.' And if the conduct o
our boys and younc men are not
properly trained and informed, they
can not fill the places and do the
work they ought to fill and do, in
and for the State and the country,
in the corainj' years.
The State University at Knox
villo is amply provided with means
oi iuirncun:r trie vounir men oi
Tennessee, in all sciences and lan
guages ; and lor the various avoca
lions of life. But the people of some
counties do 'not seem to know of the
specially valuable advantages it af
fords for tho education of their sons,
or they neglect to improve them,
although the pecuniary tost of do
ing so is very small. The Gazette
brieves that this old and meritori
ous institution should have the cor
dial and undivided support of the
people of all the counties of tho
State, as well a of all tho senators
and representatives, but more espe
cially f tho senators and represen
tatives and the people of tho coun
ties of tho Eastern division of tho
State. Hut so far it has 'not had
that support, r acts before us show
a lamentable unconcern as to ntiuz-

Now we frankly confess (he simple
facts contained in this extract struck
us more forcibly than all the rail
road talk we ever listened to. We
think you will Ky so, too. It is
coiii-!uive. Jut think tiMn it for
u u.oi.iciit, and if you ever had an'
misgivings on the subject, we think
you will kick them out 6fyouriuind
in idiort order. Iid you ever look
at it in this light before? There is
a strange jniwer in tho' combina
tion of a few figure when 'nimply
ut together. The expense of trans
portation on dirt roads is more than
double that on MacAdam or turn
'pikes. It is this, even on good
road. They have belter 'roads in
.Missouri thau we hae in East
Tea nessee -much better.. Then if
it is reduced to a mathematical eer
tainty that transportation
twice as clear on the flirt roa

I beg leave to make the following
report of the small-pox epidemic in
your county. ,
I was called by telegram from
Mayor McFarland to come to Mor
ristown on April 9th. I then found
4 cases in town and 2 in the coun
try. From the history of the epi
demic, I find that Thomas Read re
turned home from Chattanooga and
other points in the Southwest about
the 10th or loth ot Jlarch last
shortly afterward he was taken sick
and died on the 4th or 5th day
his sickness not, however, having
developed a smallpox eruption
which rendered tho diagnosis of his
case very uncertain. But the sub
sequent history of the cases follow
ing his prove, beyond a doubt, that
ho brought the small-pox to your
county for, from ll to 14 days al
ter his death, eight others who were
exposed at the time of his death
were stricken down with small-pox
to-wit: Mrs. Read, his mother, who
died on the 4th da of her sickness
James Ncal, Isabel Xeal, Mrs. Davis
Sarah Gilliam, Amanda Williams
(colored,) Kate Moorelock, (colored,)
and Mack t uiton, (colored)
On the 13th day after the death
of Mrs. Read, of tho 6 persons who
prepared her body for burial, 5 took
the disease within a few hours of
each other, and the eruption appear
cd within two hours on all of them
rrom the persons nrst named
above, the disease infected eiirbt
Br isolation and careful watching
no other members of the families of
Mrs. Iluffmaster, Mrs. Stubblefield
Mrs. Noe. Mack Fulton and Mrs
Walker, have had the disease yet
With care and prudence the dis
ease is at an end in town, with the
possibility of one or two cases of
varioloid in the Walker family. Tho
others having all passed the usua
period of incubation. The disease
has passed through tho family o
"W. (J. Davis, yet in quarantine with
the ualkcr house, both so carelully
jruarded, a further spread of the
disease need not be feared.
In the country the disease has
been confined to three houses tho
tiiliiam, the Howard aud the Proflitt
houses with the strong probability
of John Smiths family being at
tacked, as they were exposed to
Mrs. Howard, whoso case was con
cealed for a week before I found her
All of the Smith family have been
vaccinated and revaccinated, with
what success remains yet to be seen.
I p to this time there have been
3.1 cases and 11 deaths 2 deaths
before I came, Mrs. Read and her
I herewith hand you a list of
cases and a list of deaths, with dates
of death.
It is pleasing dut- to speak of tho
services of your commissioners, of
their energy and promptness in per
forming their respective duties: also
of Mr. James M. Mcrarland. and
Mrs. Powers, for tho promptness
with which the- responded, when
called to bury the dead, many of
whom had to be buried after night.
Especially to Mr. Mcrarland too
much praise can not be awarded for
his skill and thoroughness in disin
fecting and cleansing tho infected
houses much of which work is yet
to be done: to him is duo in a great
degree the safety of your town and
county. Great .responsibility . and
arduous ribor attend his work. , In
this connection I would recommend
the destruction' of the Gilliam and
Proflitt houses, as they cannot bo
safely disinfected. This will require
an order from your Court to have
them valued and burned.
I cannot clo60 this report without
saying a word of commendation for
the valuable services of tho Rev.
Richard Oliver, Alex. Black, Mrs.
Emma Ingraham and her son, also
Wade Smith and Mary Jones, in
nursing tho sick. . All tho above are
trained, experienced nurses.
I first served the corporation of
Morristowh fivo day3 beginning
April 9th, then your commission
taking charge. I served your coun
ty twenty-one days ending May the
4th. .1 now feel coufident tho epi
demic is -at an end. Your quaran
tine has been a success. . .
v a a .
in conclusion, permit mo to re
turn my thanks to. the Court, the
commissioners and the citizens for
the many acts of kindness shown
me since I came among you. .
U of which is respectfully sub

grandest railroad projects that has
ever been undertaken in South Car
olina, and the prospects for thei
completion of tho enterprise are de
cidedly encouraging. The assets of
the company -exceed the 'liabilities
and are sufficient for the location4 of
the entire line in this State. The
agent of the construction company
has been in London for some time
and is confident that he will secure
enough British capital to complete
the road and put it in running order.
When it U completed, this road,
m connection with the South Caro
lina Railway, will form a direct and
unbroken trunk line from Charles
ton to Chicago, Louisville and; Cin
cinnati. It will run from Aiken by
way of Edgefield and Abbeville,
through . Anderson and Pickens
counties, and crossing the Blue
Ridge through Eastatoo Gap,' will
traverse one of the richest sections
of. Western North Carolina; and
thence through Cumberland Gap
to Lon'don, Ky. There it will strike
the Louisville and Nashville system
by which it will secure a Louisville
and Chicago connection and also a
connection by the Kentucky Cen
tral road with Cincinnati.
The .country traversed by this
long line abounds in mineral wealth
and is famous for its fine agricultu
ral lands and well-nigh inexhausti
ble forests. It will tap ' the coal
fields of Kentucky, and will develop
the iron deposits of the Cumberland
mountains. Within a few hundred
yards of Cumberland Gap there is a
vast field of the richest iron ore,
half a mile wide, and which extends
without a break for twenty miles
along. the mountains. It is hard
and massive, easily ' accessible and,'
we are told, can bo raised and made
ready for 6melting at a cost' of ono
dollar a ton. Some of the best coals
on the continent lie in this region,

It is proposed to consolidate tho East
Tennessee, lrginia and ueorgia,
the Memphis and Charleston, the
Norfolk and Western, the North
Carolina and tho Richmond and
UaiiYillo on the basis of capital earn
ings. Mr. Gould, before leaving for
Kurope", requested Messr. I3nce and
Thomas to prepare a plan or consol
idation to be readj on his j-eturji
Those interested with Mr. Gould say
that it is not improbaUo that it a
satisfactory plan is submitted to Mr.
Gould it may be consummated with
