Lit night (Motd.iy) McFarUnd'i Opera House contained one of the larg est crowds that has erer filled the epa cieut ball. It was the occasion of the Dan and Josle Morris Sullivao enter tainment. The p'ay presented was the splendid Irlth drama, "Siiiel Agar," and when we say it was played with real merit and success we but reflect the opinion of the large and intelligent au dience that witnessed It. The company is undoubtedly one of the boat that hu ever appeared in Mormtown.' They are not a common band of strolling plater, but are artists of merit. Dan Morris Sullivan is a floe comedian and a host in himself; he keeps the audience in a roar of laughter wheneTer he ap pears. Mks Jot s Morris bulllran is a bright'and sparkling lady and a mot charming little actress. In fact all of the Sullirans are first-class.

I he juii was built only last year, at a cost of $:10,(C0, and w as regarded as one of the most secure in the country. Last week the Gazette reporter, while 'knocking about, dropped into the entei prising and popular establish ment of GoHlson & BUir, and found all handj busy opening and arranging a fine and varied stock of holiday and fancy goods, suitible for eld and young, boys and girls. They have invested money liberally in procuring an attrac tive line of goods for the season. Their stec of "Juvenile Books" cannot fail to delight and instruit the children. Handsomely bound and illustrated books for advanced readeis have been select d with care. Alsa a beautiful display of photogrsph and rutograph albums, and in fact they have more or less of everything rs-enlial for holiday rrescnts. All goods are priced at the very lowest figures, do end see the many pretty things. The Morristown Female High School is in good running order. The enroll ment up to tbe present time is one hunJreJ and c ihtjr-eijlit, and the firls. with Tenr few exceptions, we under stand, are doing praise-worthy work. The classes are well organized and they are marching alorj, conquering as they go. The i lasars embrace almost everj branch usually taught in high schools and ac i lemiea. The public rcbool de partment will close with the first eigh teen weeks. At the close of the first term, which will occur Dcccmher 21, and hefore tbe younr li lies go home to ptnd the holidays, a public entertain ment, of a very interesting character, will Le given at McFarland'a OjiCra Mouse, Friday evening, beginning at 7 Vl.'ck, to which a cordial invitation is extended to the public. We trust that the success of tbe present term, is hut t!ie beginning of glorious days to coa e in tbe school work. The teach ers are highly pieced with the advance ment and high-toued deportment of the pupils. They are using erery effort to build up a first-class school, and wc hope they will realize the full fruition of their ambition. Let all the friends of education lend a helping hand and keep the hall rolling. Morristown Gazette: Our "female barber" is just now the best advertised person in Morristown. She has been paragraphed by tbe press almost from Maine to California. Iiut all this does not in tbe leat change Katie's price for a single shave, a shampoo or a hair dye. She still adheres to former rates, shsrp razors, etc, and guarantees satisfaction to every gentleman who patronises her. Milan has tbe handsomest young white male barber in the South, and he is universally popular. II is tonsorial parlor is a delightful place, and it only need the magic touch of a lady's hand to make it Ihn cbarmlngest bourdoir in the Stato. Kicu lias also just put in a beautiful new "Daisy" chair, elegant mirror, and all he needs now is some one to run it. lie his too much work for cne. lie will pay an extra good sal ary to "Katiu" if she will coma here, or oiler her a partnership in the business. HZjn Exchange. Personally and collectively, we have no special objections to c-ffei in the consummation of an arrangement that would afford so much genuine pleasure and happine-s to the " handsomest young hlte male barber in the South," but really we don't believe such an arrangement would be consistent with law aud public opinion. .

T- tb Editur of The Morristown Gaxtte: The circuit court at Morristown dur ing last week furnished so complete an illustration of what I have heretofore said through your columns concerning the Judicial sjstera of Tennessee, that I beg a little space to place the illustra tion before your readers. - - Monday morning found Ilia Honor, Judge Rose, and Attorney General Tate, and the bar and twenty-five jurors, and half a dozen officers and a cloud of wit nesses at the court-house ready for busi ness. The Grand Jury having been elected aud charged in tho forenoon, and some subniis-ions and other preliminary mat ters attended to the week's work began in e arnest at one o'clock Monday. The jail contained about sixteen citizens of the Ty low est order. Bacon thieves, corn thieves, petty sn?ak thieves, etc. The docktt contained some other crimi nal business charges against a few men who had been able to give security for their appearance, and a large number of civil causes some of them of consider able importance. Erery hour of the time w as energet ically and active'y put' in by Judge Hose, and the bar and the ollicers and jurors. But the result. A few misde meanor mostly miserable little pistol cases, and four or five felony cases were disposed of Iiut nearly every criminal who was able to keep out of jail, failed to get a hearing. Four, I believe, of those in jail, re main over four months longer to take I prefcreuce over other business at next April term, and all tho civil business went by the board for lack of time. And besides this the Ramsey case from Cocko county, which will take most of a w. ek in its investigation, is now on the docket hero by change of venue. So that as the matter now stands with out another indictment or presentment coming into court the December term. 184, is the earliest day that any civil litigant can hope to have Lis cause heard. But before tint time everybody knows that in the very nature of things a lot more of the boys w ill be caught with tluir pistols in their pockets, crimes will be committed so that the man who can foresee the day when real liti gants can have a henring Is a prophet indeed. Sue li Is the shape of things here. Is it bettr r elsewhere There must be & change. J it the tax payers determine to hive it, ami at the next meeting of the Leg islature. uV UMERO U.i FIRES. The "fire fiend" seems determined to devastate Tennessee country towns. It becomes more apparent every day that some means must be adopted by which the destruction of property by fire can be checked. The problem is one which rests with the architects and builders. The authorities of the country towns in the State ought to realize by this time that to allow tire harbors to be erected in the business portion :f t heir towns if to iuvite the fire todestroj the property f the people and that t ignore the necessity for a fire department is-to place the inhabitants and buillings at the mercy of the llmes. If fire proof buildings only are en ctcd in the thickly settled portion of a town, destructive fires will be few and far be tween, but if all sorts of rattletraps are allowed to be sandwiched in between buildings of value, destruction may be looked for at any moment.

Editor of The Morristown Gazette : .Now that Congress has settled in to place, and the trreat Questions as to.who is Speaker and who s Ser creant-at-Arms, and who have the privilege of iruardinsr the doorways of tho Capitol building, and who plies the feather dusters, and who has the large contract for furnishing "cold tea to the thirsty members etc., etc., are all settled, Washington takes a long breath and prepares for talk and enjoyment. J:or it is to have talk by the volume, by the library. Ihe uovernmbnt .Printing Office has begun its grist of gabble, and before Congress adj'ourns it will have added acres of words to the largo tasks of reading and - hearing which afflict mankind.

Is it possible to define society ? hen the President gives a State dinner at which tho upper otiicials scrape their feet npon the new Moquet carpets of tho White House, or when Matilda Jano High- flyer has a kettle drum lor the special delectation of her circle of friends, they are both society events according to the newspapers, les, even when lobbyist 0'I)uffy cap- ttires a senator or two for a quiet dinner at Welckcrsor Chamberlains, this too, is set down as "society" news ! so it is impossible to tell where society begins or ends. Jiut there are certain recognized dis ti notions on a largo scale. One of these will bo pointed out For the time in many years there will bo a peculiarly southern society in ash- ington this winter. Say what you will'of it, Xorthern and Southern people are essentially different m their ideas ot friendly intercourse. I think there w little reason for say ing that either Northern or Southern women are tho most beautiful. I think that it might be said fairly that the Northern srirls dress with more style than their Southern sis- tcrs, but certainly not with more lhey are colder in their manners, more proper, ana les natural.

Ah, there aro delights indeed in store for those who may and can enjoy them. Tho President will entertain. Tho Foreign Ministers will have somo grand balls and routs. The Cabinet and tho Supremo Justices will givo big dinners.

"In fact, continued Jur I Gould, the speech made by Mr. Car I lisle to-day has a good ring, and j whatever uneasiness the public may I have had on the subject of prema I ture free trade legislation his ad- dress ought to carry with it a sum I cicnt quieting effect." Mr. Gould J docs not think the Speaker of the I House, however strong his free trade convictions-may be, will have any I influence urxm tho House. lie did I not think that Mr. Carlisle's free I favor free trade at any election. J "I do not think," he added, that I the country, is ready for iree trade, j Its prosperity is largely bound up I in the. prosperity ot the manuiac J curing interests, and until labor and I manufacturers reach the same plane, I free trado would bo disastrous. , I think tho present Congress will bo a conservative body. What the country needs to-day is rest, in order I to develop its resources. 1 have had I offered to me English steel rails, laid I down in Sew Orleans, for 25 per ton, while the sarao rails hero cost $44, showing a difference of 18, the amount of tho duty.

Ho thought that if the free trado question was put to a vote at tho next election, which was im probable, the Democrats would split upon it. TW0ZP0SS1BLE TICKETS. ; Atlanta Constitution. As sentiment crystallizes after the fall elections two tickets assume i promience. une is neaueu uy an Lastern man, and the other Dy a Western man. To be' more precise, one looks more to New York and I tho other more to Indiana. . We j need scarcely say that one' is the I "old ticket Tilden and Hendricks. 1 1 ho other is .McDonald and Hewitt I Tho tidal-wave governors have J dropped out of sight, "and ! for the I " i moment tho opposition seems in I dined to decide between tho two I tickets wo have mentioned. The I Republicans comment that has come I to hand shows a feeling on that side I et tho houso against tho Id ticket j The Republicans cannot conceal tho i nopo that tho Democrats wiu nomi- nate a Western man for president. Thev know that thev must carry I New York in order to win, and they can see their way clearer if a West- I ern man becomes tho Democratic nominnee. Mr. Hewitt or any other I man at the tail of the ticket would I not bo feared. The Xew York Times I praises Mr. Hewitt, and makes much I of an alleged clamor in Indiana in I favor of Mr. McDonald. When such I si shs arise from the administration camp, it is not difhcult to say what Democrats should do, because it is always saio to do what the enemy does not want us to do. The enemy in this case dreads tho old ticket "Give us anything but that to fight," is the mind of all active JXepubli 1 cans.
