A severe shock of an eirth juake, pre ceded by a loud rumbling noise as of a railroad tiain, was felt ia this place Sunday night about half past 7 o'clock. Houses trembled and table-ware rattled lively in many safes. It traveled from the west eastward, and it may be the farerunner of the great shaking np of the Republican party which the Demo crats will give it in November.

We are pleased to see, from a copy of the "Course of Study" for the public schools of Knoxville, that the directors have graded the schools and re-adopted E. II. Butler & Co.'a series ef American school books, for which Mr. John W. Paulett, of that city, is the genersl Southern agent. This is complimentary to the books, after they have been tried severs! years. We hare time and again, at the instance of the best educators ef the country, endorsed the superior ex cellence of the American scries. They have been uied in the Morristown male and female high schools (aa well as in the colored seminary) and throughout the county, and we trust they will be continued. Messrs. Brown & Stubble- field, of this place, propose to keep a good supply of the books noa. A. A.

He spoke about an hour and a half, analogizing at the outset for having to bring his personal grievances before the people. The burden or his statement was that he had been badly treated by MaJ. Fet tibone and hie backers that rettlbeae two years ago premised to give him the rsce without opposition. He read cer tiflcates from prominent Republicans complimentary to himself for services to his psrty In the past. - He was san guine of beating Pettibene in the elec tion on the Cth of September next four to one throughout the district.

He has. lived at that, place about fourteen years. His now vener able wife had a former husband (Al- dred) by whom abe had a daughter, twenty years ago. This daughter was left with relatives la North Carolina to be reared. Mrs. Norwood is a very In dustrious, money-laving woman In a amall way. She sews, quilts, raises itttrviei f tl a Ir iraeats rl mm ata alt and is in every way " a useful woman in the settlement" the chief prep and hope of the household. Well, her daugh ter had never vfolfed her in her Tennes see home, so, lat winter, the old lady, out of her earnings, sent her money to come home and see her "dear parents. She came, when, oh horror I she bore in her arms a veiled infant which en being unveiled proved to be an unmis takable mulatte I. .Fancy, the scene!!

Green quit work, receiving about $40, on settlement, for. wages. That aight (about 10 o'clock) he and Sa rah in company left the neighborhood, Ukiag the child with them. Mr. Nor wood had read ia Tac Gazette of the finding ef a mulatto male child near the railroad track, in the eastern suburb of Morristown, en the roerningof the 18th, and he came down to see the child and satisfy himself as to its identity, and with bo idea of Uklng charge of it If his suspicions were realized. A repre sentative of The Gazette accompanied him to the heme of the well-to-do and kind-hearted colored family who have charge of the child and who purpose to formally adeptit and rear it as their own. When the child was presented, Mr- Nor wood instantly called it "Jimmy,' and treated it with affectionate commisser- atioo. - - It is not our intention te treat this aubject with levity. Seriously, a mur derous outrage was attempted by the guilty couple, and they ought to be caught and severely punished for the felonious atu-mpt. The prevalent idea is that Green placed the child near th railroad track where it waa fo-ind with the expectation that it would crawl up on the track and be mangled beyond re cognition. He atated to aeveral that he was going back to Sewanee to "get a job and see the boya" meaning Lis old associates, tb e convicts, ne also atated that he did not expect te take the child many miles." He ought to be ar rested and punished. ' '" " ' ' RUSSELLYILLE JOTTINGS. Rcssellville, Tekx., Aug. 23, 1884. To Um Editor oT The M orrtoown O.utU.

Editor of The MonistowB Gazette: It has lately ceme to my knowledge that the leaders of the so-called Repub lican party, despairing of success in the coming fall elections, have determined to continue their lease of office and pow er even if they have to destroy one-third of the country. And for the purpose ef doing this they have entered into a con spiracy to bring about a war between the races that occupy the Southern por tien of the United States. They are new establishing their posts or stations all over the South and training the ne groes and low-degree 'white men to act in this nefarious outrage and slaughter of innocent men, women and children to gratify their hatred of the Southern people and to perpetuate their corrupt and infamous rule in this country. In view of these fact?, allow me to prevail with all true levers , of their country, both North and. South, 'to be on, the alert. To defend their lives and con stitutional liberties against these plot ters of conspiracy aad ruin, all must act, and that instanter, or mauy may sleep the sleep ef death without a roo- nsejt s warning. I could enlarge upon this subject and go into details, but I will forb ar at present, Loping what I hve written may save many from deatr.

Editor of The Morristown Gazette : At last the wished for ram is upon us, and farmers are looking more hope ful. Had tbe drouth continued a few days longer, crops would have been in jured. They are injured some as it is, but the rain of to-day will revive them. BOAD IMPROVEMENT. - The people of our county seem to be fully imbued jwith, the spirit of road- making, and are bringing old Grainger to the froat in point of good roads. Our district, under the management of Judge Shields, as commissioner, is tak ing the lead, and the people ought to be thankful that they have'such a man at the helm. He is not only improving them for the present, but is doing" work that will stand lor years to come.,- It is just what we need more roc' and less dirt on the surface.;. '-.

WOOLEN FAC TORY BUHNED. IMPROVEMENT AND POLITICAL NOTES, . Greensville. Tenn.. Auk. 23. '84 To'tk Editor or the Morristown Gazette : lour readers will remember that tbe Greene County Fair will be held on tbe 24th, 25th and 26th of September. If this Fair is not the be;t one ever held in the county it will not be the fault of the officers. They have certainly bad published the best Premium List ever offered by the Association 2500 of these have been printed and 'are being distributed. . Among the premiums of fered are $50 for the fastest trotter, $40 for the fastest pacer, $50 for the best horse for style and movement, $50 for ' the best single harness horse, a lady's gold hunting case watch -for the best display in the Fancy Depaitment, and a watch of the same kind for the best lady rider. Large and showy bills have been procured and will soaa be posted in all public places. Tbe work of improving and widening the track has already commenced. Excursion trains will be run from the wast on tbe railroad, and the excursion rates will be only'2 cents'" mile." The Greene County Fair Association has been the most successful fair association in East Tennessee. The adjoining counties are earnestly and cordially invited to join with us as competition is open to the world. Already we. have heard of a lirge amount of fine stock ; in other counties which it is said will be on ex hibition.. The association is out of debt and has money in the treasury t secure the payment of all the premiums. Brown's woolen factory-ware -house depot was burned on last Sunday eve ning. Our people have only com menced to manufacture, and every good citizen will regret the destruction of this factory It was owned by pro gressive and enterprising men. With tbe factory was burned about 8,000 lbs. ef wool and a considerable amount of cloth. The origin of the fire is un known. The loss is estimated all tbe way from $12,000 to $20,000, and there was ne insurance. Greenevifie is now improving faster than for several years. One or two new storo bouses and a number of handsome dwellings are golag up in the town. Politically, we are all quiet more so in fact as we suppose than anywhere else in the Congressional district. - The Republicana tbink 'that the primary election will settle the Congressional squabble, and Democrats think that the Republicans can not be united on eith er one of the candidates and that tbe nominee of their convention, to be held here next week, will stand a good chance to slip in. . . . . .
