Entered at the foal Office at Morriatown, Tenn. aasecocd claaa matter ' WHISKY LEGISLATION. To the Editor of The Morriatown Gazette: There U no doubt of the fact that a very decided majority f the vo ters of both political parties, in most of the counties in Tonnessee, desire to bo rid of tho curse of whisky. Tbis has been bo for a number of years past; and is more decidedly to-day than ever before. It is now settled beyond serious controversy that prohibitory and lo cal optio laws are constitutional. Very extensive experience in many of the States has demonstrat ed that, outside of the largo towns, prohibition, whether by vote under a local option law, or by direct en actment, does prohibit. If the will of the people on this subject could bo expressed by en actment, of the Tennessee Legisla ture, we would have either a pro hibitory or a local option law en acted by the next General Assem bly. . But thoso who desire this thin j, havo hitherto been defeated. How? It has been done in the neminatinj conventions. L nless there is, very soon an active interest taken in this matter, by temperance men, of both parties, another defeat awaits them. When the nominating conventions meet, tho whisky men by them- seWes and by those whom they can trust, will bo on hand. They will be there to deprecate making a po litical question out of tho whisky question. ; ;They will be there to ex press themselves as loudly in favor of temperance as any body. 'But they will bo there to effect the nom ination of men for Legislative office, who are non-committal on this subject. And unless they aro met and beaten in this particular game, tho next Legislature of Tennessee will take no decided step in regard to the sale of whisky. Xow, this ought not to bo made a party Question, for tho reason. A t that among tho masses, both parties alike favor decided steps in regard to whisky. This is what ought to be done. Temperance men of both parties ouht now to berin to nut their heads together and ascertain who are the proper men of their respect ive parties, lo bo trusted. If candi dates are making themselves known, temperance men ought to approach them and exact from them decided pledges. If they will not mako these pledges, let men be brought out who will mako them. Then let temperance mca attend the conventions in force sufficient to compel the nomination of such men as they ean trust. For certainly, a man is not less worth- to be trusted as a Demo crat,' because he is a sober man, and because he is willing to do what he can to rid the country of drunken ness and crime. ' n T ... t vi: r.!..i. I vvi tiiiuiy uui iic luumai if tuus . . 1 . . havo in tieir ranks good, sound, able, trust worthy men, who will voto for Ilepublican measures every time ; and who will yot voto for lo cal option or for prohibition! See to it, temperance men, whether Democrats or Hepablicans, thatjlhe proper men aro nominated, and then you will not be compelled to vote for a whisky adyoeato, in-order to get to vote tho ticket. ; ; Papers friendly to the cause pleaso copy. -' -:-:' IXSOMXTA.

' ' MoxBOViA, Liberia, W. C. Afbica, " January 10, 1S84, Mr Dear Mamma:1 A new note of prais from the depth of my soul asconds to the dear Father of love this moment, as I eagerly grasp the Teo to send von a message. With tho Psalmist of old I wpuld say u Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me praise His holy name" that He has called me and so safely and gloriously led me to bear the message to the poor hea then, now glorious to now realize the call not a delusion to this field 1 am now just a little distance from the place where sleeps all the first missionaries who came here. I have not a fear. The Lord has brought me here to live and labor, and I hope to return to see you again. Should it be at any time to lose my. life hero, it will be only to find it again with my dear Savior, in the mansion ne has gone to pre pare for me. Tho vessel arrived hero the night of the 8th inst: She dropped anchor about '12 o'clek, and wo wero safe in port. Thanks giving and praise in a manifold air went up, and up. O what wonder ful things God hath done for me. The vessel was anchored about two miles from shore and we had to come on shore in small boats. The firat thJnrr T tan was a bont, r-ftmmrr a o with six bier necroos at the oars Some of these without shirts, aud some without pants. The pilot had on clothes. Tho time was early, about six o'clock in the morning. The Captain went ashore, and said ho would inquire for mo a good boarding place. I could not go on shore till next morning. Thatnitrht tho poor seamen seemed anxious to have mo talk with them on the Word that had more than all else given satisfaction to all our ' souls. But as I went to the forecastle to begin the lesson tho Captaia came on board. Then they were called to elevate the boat. They said, "We will be back in a few minutes.'' The Captain was suffering writh toothache aud neuralgia, and a poultico was desired for his relief. 1 went to make it but found no fire. While tho cook made the fire I went on with the lesson among the sail ors. They asked me about Heaven, and if I thought tho first in position here, would be highest there, and how we would differ there. Just as I began to reply, the cook called me to make tho poultice for the Captain. I oxcused myself and said, "I will leave my Bible and return in a few minutes, then we will finish our talk." Having finished my er rand, I returned. They seemed glad. It was getting rather late and I felt sleepy and unfit to say anything interesting. -But the Lord did so wonderfully help me. I took the 3d chapter of Proverbs. Tho commands and promises there giv en. Oh! I had sueh an understand ing of the word, such grand and now thoughts to give them. They all said they wanted to be christians, and nramisftd in rrivA fhir tinrfatn 1 " .1 . n j- 1 tt the Savior and meet me in Heaven They kneeled 1 down -and prayed with me, and I believe the kingdom of Heaven was near each one. I tild them I would always pray for them, and they must pray for me. O, it would do mo good beyond ex pression to know thoy were, saved and would pray for me. , I want you all to pray fir Captain Kogerf , and all the men on the vessel, tho "Monrovia." A sailor's life is a hard one. I am not bo much sur prised at the seamen being wicked since I see some things of their life. Now. let us always pray for tho sail ors. Thursday morning, 10th inet., I was early committing my way to . -w- .-'-a- ".'' . - ' uie XiOfu, as 1 . wouia soon go on shore where mr new" homo was to be, perhaps. I did not know. if. I would stay m Monrovia or iiot. At half past six I sat' down in a chair to which ropes yer8 attached, and the seamen let me down into the boat which carried mo on , shore. And oh ! the- degraded scenes that met my eyes. . He took me iuto a business place to wait a few 'min utes, and ho would take me to the mission house. Very soon the pas tor of tho Methodist Church came in." , I was introduced to him. : lie asked me to go to his home aad he would see about a boarding place for me.' He is a real black man a native. He is educated, and a good holy man. ,But mamma, dear,. the experience of my feelings when I bid the Captain god-bye, not know ing when I would see another white, was such as it had s never been bo fore. , O, It took new. and living faith to support my heart.- Noth ing but the love of Christ constrain ed me to cpdure this. The minister took me into tho mission houso, aad I thero I: met Miss Sharp, a- mission J has a school of boy3 and girls. She gatherea tuem lrom a triDo near by. She was so glad to 6ee me 6he cried. The little children came around me shaking my hand call in me mamma. They call all the lady missionaries mamma. I tol them they must call me Miss Alice, She would have me to stay and take breakfast with her. A poor woman has just come into the mission home with measles to be taken care of. The minister did not know it. So I went into disease the first thinjr My faith was steadfast in the Lord Very soon the minister, Mr. Pitnan, came for me. I went to his home and waited till he found me a board ing place. The best he could get. The price is 17.00 per month will have to pay from 81.50 to $2.00 per month for washingj and furnish soap, starch and blueing, myself. me here. He has blessed me more than I can tell far more than I expected. In love, Alice. 'iV 0 2' LOST, BUT O ONE BEFOIl K. ' London Queen. The above is a very common ex pression, and yet its true source has been almost wholly overlooked. .It has figured as an epitaph upon the gravestones and has been utilized by tho poets and other writers. The thought is, inded, a Christain thought, but the wTrds are tho words of a pagan. It was the stoic Seneca who said. "Not lost but gone before." There is in his 3Gth pistle a remarkable sentence, in which we read, "Death, which wo dread and shun, interrupts life, does not take it away; the day will come again which will restore us the light, and which many would shun unless it brough back those who are forgotten." The meaning of this is not that of the Christain, and nothing else in Seneca, so far as we can discover, can be compared with the phrase under consideration. But Cyprian, the martyr, who wrote in the third century, supplies us with something very definite. In his discourse "On Mortality," Cyprian speaks in this language: "Our brethren should not be bo- wailed when by tho summons of the Lord they aro delivered from this wtrld,forI know they are not lost but sent before (nen eos amrtti, sed prcemitti,) that when they re tire they precede (or go before,) so that they ought to ba longed after as those who go on a journey or a voyage, and not lamented. It will be seen at a glanco that our com mon saying 13 almost an exact rendering of the words of Cyprian, and to him we should hesitate to ascribe tho expression. PREPARING TO PLUNDER. A Chicago correspondent of the Memphis Appeal, under date of the 8th, says tho Palmer House, one of the principal hotels of that city, is J a f . w in a state 01 eruption, and a very eneetive serio comedy is being enac ted within its palatial walls. Last week Mr. "Willis Howe, whose title has been raised to "managing part ner of the Palmer House company," sent a note to each of the 200 per manent guests of the house, request ing them to vacate their rooms one week in June and another in July, during the two national political conventions. There ensued deep lamentation among tho regular boarders, many of whom had resid ed at this caravansary for years be fore Mr. Howo left his small clerk ship at another hotel. Protests were numerous, secret indignation meet ings were held, Potter Palmer was appealed to and recourse had to va rious expedients with a view of changing tho order of the "manag ing partner," but all in vain. ""Yes terday all tho regular boarders who failed to acquiesce in the Howe pro gram wero notified that their rates of board were forthwith' raised 100 per cent. This was tho last straw, and tho regular guests have resolv ed to quit the house on the last day of May.

The Jerseys are the native cattle of llussia, and can be purchased in that country at from S3 to $10 per head.

Chickens when , first hatched should not be hurried out of the sit ting nest. For twenty-four hours at least, from the time the earliest commence to show themselves, it is better to leave them under or with the hen mother.

Superphosphate, says a tobtco grower, is very quick in its efforts, and it has always boon remarked that a spoonful of it , in the hill would ripen the tobacco plant a week or too sooner than when wen rotted manure was alone used. It has also been tho experience of our growers that superphosphate gives a fine, thin leaf. This quick ripen ing is now though objectionable by many since if tho plant remains ol a dark green, exhibiting a healthy growing appearenco for a longtime, the leaf will be heavier and ot a dark color. This is effected, as is claimed by tho use of castor pomace and cottonseed meal.

The pruning of grapo vines and training them: upon their trellises, and the transplanting of blackberries raspberries and currants should bo attended among tho first warm days, says the American Cultiva tor.

EXr ERIEXCE - THAT DEMOXSTn ATED WHAT ATTENTION WILL AC COMPLISH. From the Cincinnati News Journal. We thank our Iowa correspond ent for his remarks on l,Tho Caro of Orchards" in The yeics Journal of a few weeks ago. Iowa has not been considered as a favorable cli mate for tho culture of fruit, but the experience of -our correspondent, who has -resided there some forty years, snows wnat.may be done by care and attention. A few years ago he rented from a neighbor an orchard in very bad condition, and which had never repaid its owner for the expense of fencing. After fencing, scraping, and soapwashing, substantially as described in our ar ticle, ho was delighted to seo it set and mature a fine crop of fruit. But owing to the scarcity of fruit in the neighboring orchards, his invest ment did not remunerate him, as lis fruit was carried eff by basket- fuls both by day and by night But is experiment showed what eould be done with an orchard ruined by neglect. Thero aro thousands of orchards in tho Ohio Valley which have been neglected in the same way, until their owners have come to the conclusion that tho climate has so changed that fruitgrowing no longer pays. To all such we would say, turn over a new leaf with the commencement of this new year ; seo that 3"our. ereliards are put in good order, dead and dying trees and branches removed, moss and all that harbor insects scraped off, the bodies and large branches well swabbed with soft soap and carbolic acid or sumo other insecti cide, the ground well manured and scarified where sod bound, destroy caterpillar nests, keep your pigs in tho orchard to destroy the insects.. in the fallen fruit, and report to The Xeics Journal next autumn whether fruit raising pays. Tho last generation, with a virgin soil and the protective wind breaks of surrounding forrests, needed only to plant their trees and nature did tho rest. But the present has an other lesson to learn ; constant crop ping has impoverished the soil, in sects havo multiplied, and new spe cies have been introduced ; tho wind breaks havo been cut away, and the rains, instead of being ab sorbed by the soil or sluggishly finding way into the streams, now drain rapidly lrom tho surfaco and aro carried off in washing torrents. These changed conditions require in our farmers a change of tactics. It will not do to say, "I have always dono so." Wc need a new agricul ture as well as a new chemistry. ( . PAUPERIZING CATTLE. Ono of the religious papers, deal ings with the subject of mission work in the western States and Territories, draws an illustrations from the experienco ot men who know all about cattle: In Now Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming Territory, and all along thoso lines of longitude, millions of cattle subsist through all the winter seasons on tho native grasss without being fed. Tho cattle kings of Wyoming told mo Ythcn I was laboring there that, from the severity of somo of their winters, they lost from three to fivo per cent, of their cattle. I asked why they did not keep a supply of hay to help tho weaklings through. "Give them hay and they quite work, and their examplo tends to demor alize tho hord cheaper to let them die." A friend of mine in Nevada, who had a stock ranch, told me .1 !i - X I 1 once, in uie severity 01 a nam winter, ho bought a stack of hay to tide his - weakly eattlo through a cold snap. His supply ol hay was not at all adequate to the length of tho winter season, but would sustain life till the enow should pass away and allow the cattle access to tho grass; but to his great disappoint ment, all the cattio admitted to tne hay-stack lay down by it as soon as they fill themselves. Then when hunger returned thejr would waiK to tho water-trough and drink, and return to tho hay-stack and eat. Thus they spent their days till tho hay was all devoured, and there, . .1 1 1 1 ono by one, . tney lay uown ami died, 'i : . The next winter was also very severe, and my friend saw that he was likely again to loose a large number of cattle, but, having learn ed a lesson of wisdom on tho.distri- , bution of charity, he determined to -adopt a different method; so he se-. cured a supply of hay. but kept it entirely out of sight of tho herd, and during tho very severe weathor, ; he had each "cowboy" sling two bundles of hay across - his shoulder, ' and havo them hang down fore and aft of his body, so as attract the at tention of the cattio, and pass quiet ly among them as they wero scatter ed widely over the plains, and. when they found ono in a starving condi tion, just to lay down a little hay and pass on. In that way ho did not'pauperize, but he did vitalize and keep his needy cattio to work, on tho lino of self-support. He did not lose ono that winter. The American .Cultivator says: "We imagine that. many., farmers plant too largo a garden and try to raise too much variety. Enough to supply one's own ncods is about all the ordinary farmer can .afford to ! grow, unless it be a little surplus to supply a local market." Wo im agine the trouble is that they do not plant any garden at all worth men tioning and do not raise vegetables to supply their own tables season ably,' . . : Intelligence from the Poqahontas ;. mines says the drill passod through tho entry on the 8th, when thero was an oseapo of foul air. ; It was thought tho mines would be opened by tho 12th or sooner.
