The fruit grown by the election of Carlisle to the Speakership are beginning to ripen. The'first that have ben gathered were garnered at Philadelphia, on Tuesday of last week, by the Republicans who elect ed the Mayor, city officers and both branches of the city council, over the Democratic Reform ticket, by an overwhelming maioritr. We shall b surprised if the city of New York does not follow suit when the time comes.

ASOTUEll PRECIXCr HE A Rt tblofdos torrnpwiiliDN of tbe Bristol Nwa. By-the way, before I close, I may is well tell you that I have just learned that Martin s, Pulaski coun ' v, promises to spring into a city, as lioanoke did. The Cripple creek branch of the Norfolk and estern railroad is to start at that point, and already 500 hands are at work. The . . . . wutnwe&tern Virginia irapreve ment company has optioned Martin farm of acres for J.", 00, and will soon close the option. You know that means business. The people ef Cripple creek haye con tracted to erect four new iron fur naccs. These are the men who ask the dutv, or tariff, on iren ores to be JouMed. and the answer of the Carl isieoiornson- atierson-iiewniirer trade tariff reformers is the threat to remove what tariff there is on i hem and to place ores on the free ii-t. fHn t tell this to -Mr. U.

The heavy wind storm felt in this placo Tuesday night of last week, was but the edges of a terrific cy. clone that swept through Alabama, Georgia and North and South Caro lina. At Chattanooga, Cleveland, and other parts of lower East Ten nessee it was very severe and con siderable damage was done to dwel ling bouses, farm buildings and fenc- mg. At -w jiaritei, twenty two miles west ef this place, the win unroofed tbe depot, destroyed fenc ing and Uprooted fruit trees and timber. In various parts : of the four States named the loss of life is estimated at more than three hun dred. , , . In Alabama, from KcIIyton to Wetuiauka, in Cooaa county, a big bU ui wind itora iojurea aovertl, : 3T blwing down houA s, barns, church fitetplesj carrving t''.em into every direction.' At Cro J Plains, eieht perpoos wets killed, and ethers scri ouslv lniured. At Rock Run and Amerson lifs and property were de strored. Marion had but ono vic tim hut mnch nronertv .was dam-. aged, Motitgomrylhadj hiisel .un, roofed, trees, fences, bridges torn dowrrr bnt no-other rasnai ties;- The damage pear that point ia consider? able, but does not compare, with the havoc played in the interior of the State. The steamer, Alajr'rie Burke waa blown out the , river "into the woods by the toroido. At Leeds, fifteen miles east of Birmingham.the terrific cyclone swept through La haba Yalley. Xo idea of the deras tation can be conceived. .At one o'clock the people sav a dense fun nel shaped cloud, black as night, ap nreadiihi? miles away, from the bouthwest. roarinir louder than thousand coalburncra, and the whole heavens were illuminated with ro culiar glow, never to be forgotten by the terror-stricken people. As it approached, the Llack shafts darted frotn'the 'tot 'of the 'gtranire1 eloui toward the earth' with almost light nin" raniditv At 1:30 o clock' it swept over the new town of Leeds leavine. absolutely nothintr in the way of bouses and trees. - '' It follow ed the track of the Georgia Pacific road six miles, covering it that dis tance with debris. The west bound irn fitm Atlanta was fifteen min utes behind time, and escaped tota destruction. ' The east bound train was stopped by a treo blown across the road Irom the main cyclone Thus both trains were providential iy saved. This new road stood the heavy rain and wind splendidly, and not ono 'foot of it was damaeed. The scene around Leeds beggars descrip tion. Houses just completed yvere blown away, and not even a brick left where a house stood. Horses mules and cows killed and in some instances with fence rails driven clear through their bodies. At Dr. Wright's two horses were killed and three blown away and never heard from. He was a contractor on the road and all his houses, twenty-three carts and two wagons were utterly demolished. At Poole s house trunk containing $1500 waa blown away, also two bales of cotton. There were eleven persons killed at Leeds and thirty weunded, at least one-third fatally. The cyclone was atteadod by severe hail, some stones being as large as man s fist In Georgia, in Heard county, the cyclone swept ever a portion of it One negro was killed, and several other negroes and whites wero bad ly wounded. Many heuscs were blown down and the trees and fences completely blockaded the roads. Cuttle killed and horses and mules missing. One white family is miss ing. At JNewnan, tho storm was so vere, but no lives lost. ' Hail stoned measured two and a half and three inches in diameter. AlVthe window panes that wero exposed were shat tered. At Palmetto, hail fellas large as partridge eggs. At Jonesboro. there was a meteoric display of ball lightning. At Rome the 6torm wan fearful a large number of house wero blown down and fourteen per sons reported killed in that vicinity. 1 he storm seems to have divided west of Cartersville, part of it going up r.towah valley, the other up Nancy's creek. The last named fragment did very little damage till reached L. S. Mumford's place, five miles north of Cartersville. It un roofed his dwellinjr, blew down barns, stables, carriage bouse, etc., and killed three and injured six mules. His loss is frem $4,000 to 55,000. At Marietta, houses were unroofed and trees blown down. At Mt. Airy, : lho storm demolished houses, killing the wife and daugh ter of Howard Cash, and seriously injuring many other persons. Pass ii.g aboye Nickelson, Jackson coun ty, it utterly demolished Mr. Char lie Nash's house, and seriously in juring hjs wife and daughter and a lulle girl. At Athens, tbe storm did great damage to life and property. In Ocoueo county, the hail stones tiiat fell wero as large as a man's fist and would weigh seven ounces Pickens connty suffered from tbe rav ages of the storm twenty persons killed and many wounded. But tho most heart-rending spectacle was long a blown be jily , bur Ired yarus witbout touching f ic gr ind. At one place an eye wi'ess aL'rms that the cyclone blew a.l the water outoftEe creek and carried it up into the body of the great air spout. It is estimated that- the acUal dam- g? m hej settlement, will qot ynp xearjy; hjtind.rcl thousand jjfoUari. At Indian bpnngs there was a heavy fa ai I g tor m .- -Th e-wtorm -afr-Monli cello is appalling Few bouses, were left standing. Accounts of the storm, from Jones, county,' aro heartreLI ing. Along the Macon and Augusta road great damage , is reported in the counties contiguous to tho road. The storm did fearful work in Butts county.. Severalpxrsons wore kill-ed.-:lAtHaddoek's Ration, on the Macon and Augusta railroad, several were killed;1 likewise Blonntville; about fifteen miles-from fMilledge ville. Tho cyclone did not strike the latter place, although a storm was felt. ' : At Sparta much property was lost.' Two destructive cyclones passed over 'Putnam county sweep ing everything before them, and causing great loss of life and prop erty. ' - At 'i ennule, - tbe storm car ried desolation and death in its track In Jefferson county considerable damage was dono to property and stock. ?In Warren coanty it played havoc, killing one 'child and : Injur ing many persons. At Union Point, the rain fall was terrible as well 1 as the hail. At Washington, the hail stones were as large as guinea eggs. No lives lost. A 'heavy rain and large hail fail at Conyer's. Tbe cyclone missed Lincolnton about one mile, and left death and misery 'in its track. The track of the cyclone was about balfaTmile wide. ' The wind was' very, high in Savannah, but beyond- a few " fences blown down no damage was dene. : Cave Springs sustained damage from the sheets of the storm. ' . The cyclone entered Soutb Caro lina at Chester, and did a vast amount of damage to property.LUp ward of forty houses were blown down, and two churches were de-: droyed.- Some eight or ten persons were more or less seriously injured bnt nono killed. The next town struck was Chappels, on the line of tbe Columbia and Greenville rail road. The place wa literally de roolUhed, not a house left staading. Two men were killed by falling trees. Three freight cars on the track wero lifted up by the wind and hurled 50 feet away. The tornado continued its march of devastation in a westerly direction, and carried everything before it. Having reach ed tho western limit of tbe State it changed its course and swept across several counties toward the North Carolina line. " In North Carolina the cyclone struck therCarolina Centra! railroad between . HamJet and .'Polkton, at Rockingham. Thero was great de struction to property, and fifteen lives were lest. One entire family were killed. Tho telegraph wires were blown down and brokeu. A heavy wind storm raged over almost tho entire flooded district in the Ohio valley, and lashed the waters into waves which destroyed an incredible number of half sub merged houses. Tho river at Evans ville, Louisville and Cincinnati were strewn with wrecks ot .houses de stroyed in the gale.

Hut as to Judge -llouk's resolu tion ? Thero is" nothing in it." "No member of Congress ever thought that the, appropriation made some years agoof several millions of acres of public land for the purpose of endowing- "agricultural colleges" in the various States would be of any special practical benefit to the farm ers of tbe country. It was only, a great grab on tho public treasury- it was only a scheme to give .way the public domain and to provide salaries for a largo number ot pro fessors throughout the United States, who were and yet aro sadly in need of salaries. e j.eed educated iarm ers, it is trueK but the only way to educate them is to send the boys to the ordinary, schoe Is, colleges and universities of the land and require them to go through the routine of a reeri ar corse of study. An agri cultural college as a specialty is a humbug and a swiadle. One corn field, with an industrious boss to manage it, is worth a dozen or six teen colleges in teaching a boy how to be a farmer. We wouldn't give Col.Lutz8 or William Carmack s knowledge of practical ; farming for that ot any four pi ofessors in the biggest college in America, and we will bet a nickel, with a hole in it, that. Gregory Ash can make a bet ter ditch, and make it quicker, than could the entire faculty ot the Uni versity of Tennessee.- Education is a good thing in a family and every boy and girl in tho United States ought to have some of it, but the best way to be a good farmer is to live in tho country and learn how to do the work. That beats agricul tural colleges. And hereafter we hope the government will keep its land for actual settlers and not per mit it to be gobbled up, as so much of it has been in tbe past, by land grabbers, under the fraudulont pre- text of building railroads, establish ing schools and other false preten ses. ' - A COINCIDENCE. The recent ..strange and unac countable murder- of -Mrs. Carrie Hunter, near Rogcrsville Junction, brings to our mind a similar case which occurred in White county, Tennessee, on the night of tho 11th of May, 1845, in which a lady of the same name, (Hunter) was shot thro a window, about the same time of night, by an unknown person and instantly : killed. A man named Kirby was afterwards arrested, tried, found guilty and executed. It was a case of circumstantial testi mony entirely, and is reported in the Supreme Court Reports of the State, and'makes exceedingly interesting It can be found in 2nd Humphreys.' On the night murdered, Mrs. Hunter and two other ladies were sitting in a room near a low window in the house of Mrs. Hunter, about an. hour in the night, engaged , in conversation, a gun was fired from without the house, the ball of which passed through the window-glass and struck the lady in the neck, a little below the ear, and passing through the neck, caused her death immediately. .

Ah Id soldier who viewed the storm wreck said : ' It looks like there has been a battle here." Mr. Sam Tate, who was in the storm, said: "It seemed that every honse was com ing right at me." An Irish peddler named James Cannon, was caught in tne eage oi me cyciene. lie wm crossing a creek, and the footing was blown from under him. His -pack was claimed by the tornado and he clung to a stump for dear life. The peddtar thinks his pack is now in the middle of the Atlantic .ocean. Mr. Locke, who was also in the edge of Lb e cyclone, said: "It looked like the elements wero on a tear. Tbe clouds and winds were gone crazy.

Judgo Hsuk's resolution, recently ntrouueed in tne Jlouse, to mvesu gate the agricultural colleges that received aid from the general gov ernment, is doubtless aimed at the University of Tennessee, at, Ivnox ville. We are not sufficiently in formed as to tbe conduct of that in stitution to know whether it needs " investigation" or net. As to whe ther it has been managed as a liter ary institution,, following the usual curriculum ot ordinary universities, or as an " agricultural college, we aro not informed. In fact, we don't know what an "agricultural collego is, or how one is . or should te car ried on. What is an "agricultural college," any way ? "What do they teach in a school of that kind ? Do they have professors, of plowing, hoeing, ditching, rail splitting.fence building, planting, sowing, reaping, eta, and do tho said professors de liver regular. lectures on these vari ous branches of .agriculture? ,J)o they take the boys out . and give, them practical lessons" iu all these accomplisbmenia? For instance; does tho professor of the plow take his class ,out. and go through .the' motions of harnessing and hitching the mules to the plow and then pro ceed to the actual work, telling the class which is " gee and which i$ " haw?" And do 'they, have text books, with all the lessons put down, so that the , boys can "get their les sons oetore tne ooys go out io me field with the professor to say 'em ?

That rifle ball had a peculiar mark upon it a small protuberence near the neck, caused by a defect in tho moulds in which the ball had been moulded. William Daniel, a gun maker, prov .ed that he made the bullet moulds for ' Gideon Anderson that after making the moulds he ran some bullets, one of which he still had in his possession. This ball was shown and had the same mark, or scar on it as the one found in the room, and the two balls weighed exactly the same, it was inevitable therefore that Mrs. Hunter's death had been caused by a bullet moulded in An derson s moulds and shot from An derson's rifle. It was proven that Anderson had sold or. traded the rifle to Kirbi a day or two before tho murder. That rifle ball, with the scar on it, was the first link in the chain of circumstantial evidence. The next link was the tracks found near the window. These were just such tracks as would, have .been made by Kirby's shoes-rexcept that the shoes which made . tbe tracks bad no iron plates on the heels while ihe shoes which lvirby had on when arrested had. Upon closer scrutiny however, it waa found that the plates were old and. much worn while the nails which, fasten them to the shoe-heels were new. It was therefore evident that Xirby had taken the plates off before the shoot ing and bad replaced them after wards with new nails. Another link in the chain were the horse tracks. A horse had been hitched to a walnut tree near Mrs. Hunter's house. It was noticed that one of the tracks made by a hind foot was peculiar and out of line with the other feet. Kir by owned a small, sorrel mare with a crooked hind foot, and had been 6een riding this apimal in the direction of Mrs. Hun ter's in tho afternoon of the day of the murder at night. Kirby liyod twenty miles away from Mrs.. Hun ter; he had been seen in her neigh borhood late in the evening riding .- le., 1 ' '.11 1 trie utue sorrei mare witn inecroeK- i ed foot. The next morning a man who lived near Kirby went to see him about some business at 9 o'clock in the day, and found him sound asleep; when awakened he looked frightened, startled and confused; when arrested he gave contradict ing and badly mixed statements as At the World's dictation Thank you, John Littleton, for your sympathy and kind ; tribate.
