How many Nashville young ladies could
have made preparations for a visit to Eu
rope in so short a time as did the young
lady who figures in this pwagraph, clipped
from the St. Louis Journal:
An interesting young ml33, who resides
in Kirkwood still a school girl waked up
one morning last week with but little idea
thit the day was to develpp anything of
unnroal interest to her more than "vaca
tion" was naturally affording. At about ten
or eleven o'clock in the morning a very un
expected invitation, was extended to her for
a trip to Europe, and when evening came
she was whirling along the "Vandalia line"
over the Illinois prairies to take passage on
last Saturday's steamer for "Faderland."
Take note of it, fair young lady readers, and
from henceforth discard all troublesome
Ideas of a month's preparations and sundry
"big Saratogas" when you want to travel.

This distinguished and ablo gentleman,
whose labors in behalf of Alabama anil
Alabamians have been unremitting slnca the
war, has lately removed to Nashville, Tenn.,
where he is at this time engaged as business
manager and director of C. C. Giers' cele
brated Gallery of Photographic Art. This
gallery is the most complete and extensive
of its class in the Southern States and fully
equal to any in the United States. It gives
constant employment to twenty-five or
thirty different aids and artists, selected
with special reference to their fitness for
their several offices. The work, which we
have inspected closely, is well nigh perfect.
We have never seen .anything superior to
it and but little that could compare with it
in all the essentials of tba art. And the
proprietor, Mr. G. and Lb excellent mana
ger, Col. Crandall, have so systematized ev
erything that the wheels move with tha
smoothness; regularity and beauty of clock
work. Every negative is preserved, num
bered and filed away for future use. The
photograph Is also numbered to correspond
with the negative; so that any patron of the
establishment can have his picture dupli
cated by sending tho number with his or
der. We mention this "peculiar institu
tion" in order to direct the minds of our
readerj to the capability of our people to
excel in any and everything they undertake

Dr. White, the Lebanon Herald philos6

why his name does not appear In our police

And now a sad story reaches us of a

"You aro a good little boy, and some of
theso days I'm going to make you a nlco

to a gentlemanly little fellow who had re

and that Is worth a great deal to any boy.
Tbe Savannah Netcs relates this thrilling
narrative: "As wo have before remarked,
no Macon man is allowed to move in
respectable society unless hi' back-yard is
ornamented with a ferocious bull-dog. Tom
Art ope has one, and he went out the other
morning before breakfast to clnin him up
so the children could come out to play.
Tom tried to catch the dog, but failed, and
then the dog tried to catch Tom, and suc

quired the cook and several disinterested
neighbors to whistle him off."
The Appeal tells of a Memphis parent
who, having vainly lectured his children
about the impropriety of leaving the front
door open at night, thought he would show
them the impropriety of such carelessness
by It king ont various bats, umbrellas, and
other articles left in the hall. Upon reach
ing the gato with these goods in his hands,
an nseen policeman tapped him on the
back and marched him to the stationhonse.
The confused parent expostulated, telling
tho policeman ho took the goods out of his
own house in order to play a joke on his
children, and show them how easy a thief
could enter the house when they left the
door open, and steal anything in the hall.
After a satisfactory explanation the police
man released the gentleman, whoso chil
dren are fully satisfied with the impressive
character of his joke.
"The paragraphist of the Union and
American quotes : 'In the midst cf life,
we are in death'; and then adds : 'If that
quotation is not properly given, Dr. White,
of the Lebanon Herald, will please set us
right in the next issue of bis paper.' It
gives us Eincero pleasure to say that the
quotation is properly piven. By what lucky
accident the paragraphist Ltumbled on the
correct rendering, we cannot imagine.
It is a habit which i3 in no danger of be

brings tears of joy and pride to the mild
blue eye (tho left eye) of the Union and
Asiebican paragraphist to receive tho com
mendation of tho Lebanon Herald man, his
feelings of exquisite satisfaction not being
lessened even by the closing sentence of the
Herald paragraph, as he has no desire that
any of his habits should become "chronic."-
It has a depressing effect upon the mind
of the reader to find, in the Lebanon Her
ald, such sentences as the following:
"Among tin agreeablest of current corre
spondence are tho letter of" etc.
"Do we have doughnuts this evening?"
asked a nice young man of a waiter at the

"Of c -urse we dough not," promptly re

whose mind is entirely given up to the con
sideration of conundrums, enigmas and
other -vanities of that character.
"Why 'of course?"' inquired the nice
"Because they are not kneaded this even

sealed the fate of the sad-eyed youth, for
the nice young man, seeing that the mind
of the former was shattered beyond the
reach of medical science, rose majestica'ly,
seized the conundrnmist by the left car, led
him to the gallery surrounding the rotunda,
and cast him into tho fountain below, where
he became food for the fishes.
FIVE CENTS IS ENOUGH.
An Imposition on the Public.
Travelers on tho Louisville and Nashville
Road, and on all the railroads running
South irom this city, are subjected to the
imposition of being compelled to pay ten
cents each for newspapers, or do without,
and it is high time the Superintendents ot
the roads referred to put a stop to this goug
ing business. Tho matter is under proper
regulation on the S Louis and Southeast
ern Road, the news agent who has the mo
nopoly of selling papers on that line being
required to sell papers at five cents, at
which price, ho receives sufficient profit. A
few months ago, Mr. J. A. Dahlgren, agent
of the St. Lonis and Southeastern, but who
was then Assistant Auditor, was traveling
over the line and had occasion to buy a pi
per of the train boy, to wbom he was un
known. Ho handed him a nickel, and was
told that the price of the paper was 10 cents,
and upon his refusing to pay that sum,
tho newsboy grew quite in
dignant and tbrea'.ened to have him
put off at the first station, but upon being
told by the conductor of the position Dahl
green occupied, changed his tune somewhat,
and mado an abject apology. He was then
told that he himself would be put off at the
next station unless he went through the
train and refunded fivo cents to every pas
senger to whom ho had sold a paper, which
he was very glad to do.
The traveling public have some rights
which railroad companies are bound to re
spect, and they should be protected against
the sbamful imposition of being require!
to pay ten cents each for papers, which
cost tho news-dealer from two and a half,
to three and a third cents.
We have no doubt but that all that is re
quired to have the matter regulated, is to
call tho attentlop of raihoad companies to
tliis' outrage.: '

When the name of John Jolly was called,
that somewhat noted individual stepped
briskly to the front, presenting a decidedly
dilapidated and demoralized appearance. He
wjs minus his coat, and plus a great deal of
real estate, clhiglng to his garments, while
his straggling locks looked as though the
moth had been camped therein the night
previous. Mr. Jolly had the misfortune toloso
his wife about five weeks ago, but his is are
markably buoyant nature, and he has already
supplied her place with another wife. For
somo time past he has been holding a series
of prayer meetings in Crawford .street, but
has met wilh so liitle success in that line,
that he Changed his programme 'Thursday
night and got gloriously drunk, when he
was picked Up' by a vigilant policeman,
and removed to a p'aco 69 musical that all
the windows have bars. He smiled like a
complacent porpoise when tin Judge fined
him a $5.25, and left his bat
la pawn while he went off
to get the money. As tbe hat would not
bring more than ten (10) cents, if put up at
forced sale, it is barely possible that Mr.
Jolly, becoming engaged in another prayer
meeting forgot to return.
"Did they tell you you were coming to a
baby sh'bw, when you were notified to ap
pear this morning," queried the court when
Martha Chandler, colored, answered to her
name. The question was a natural one
under the cirenmstances, that estimable wo
man making her appearance with a small
Afrlcan,Inher arms, while another, onegrade
larger, trudged at her heels. The charge
sgainsc Mrs. Chandler was "making a loud
and unusual noise, calculated to provoke a
breach of the peace," Miss Mary Walker
heicg brought before the court to answer to
tbe same charge. A witness testified that Mr.
Chandler has been very seet on Mis Wal
ker for some tim past, and that tho two
were going to get married iu a couple of
weeks, leaving Mrs. Chandler to look out
for herself, which was certainly a discoura
ging prospect for tho latter.
"Don't you think she's rather anxious to
get married, when she proposes to marry
another woman's husband," asked tho
cou't, who holds very strict ideas relative
to the estate of matrimony.
The witness thought that perhaps the
uind of Miss Walker was agitated and
anxious on that subject, to some extent,
and he really saw no reason why sho should
persist in her intention to marry Chandler,
when there were plenty of unmarritd men
around who might as well get married as
not, as they had plenty of leisure time.
Mrs. Chandler and Miss Walker each
loaned tbe city the sum of five dollars.
Frank Corbett denied that he had been
drunk, but as an officer testified that ho had
four d him lying on the pavement, where
tbe hard side of the bricks was turned up,
it is barely possible that Mr. Corbatt pre
varicatednot Intentionly perhaps, but yet
he may have done so. The officer stated
further, that, having occasion to stop three
times while conveybg Corbett to the work
house, the latter improved the opportunity
each time to drop off into a refreshing
slumber from which ha was aroused with
as much difficulty as though he had been
really intoxicated. Two dollars and fifty

being drunk at the time she was arrested,
but admitted she was in that condition in

she was mistaken, also, was fully shown,

SETTLING AN OLD FEUD.
A Constable Shoots n Jnstlco of the
Peace in Caba.
From tho Memphis Avalanche, July SO.
From gentlemen who reside in the vicin
ity of the scene cf the tragedy, tho details
cf a bloody ending of a quarrel of several
years' duration, are gathered. The parties
are Richard Gay, a constable, and Esquire
W. B. Hale, between whom for a long time
there has existed bad feelings, the nature of.
which is not, at present apparent. Both
men were good citizens, and save when in
the'r cup? esteemed ons another. Last
summer they met at Cuba, in this county,
and 1 elng under the influence of liquor, re
newed their quarrel, their passions iisisg
to such an extent that they went to work
to carve one another with knives. Throw
ing these away, however, they ended the en
counter in a hand to-hand fight, from which
friends separated them. They were
indicted for their encounter, and the
trial was set for yesterday at Bartlett.
Mondav, however, they met at Cuba and
began talking over the difficulty. They be
came very angry, and Hale going into
Cobb's store picked np a weigh-, which
Mr. Cobb took away from him immediate
ly. Hale then opened a small clasp knlfo
and went to the door, where Gay was wait
ing for him. To G.tt's assertion that Hale
had a weight, Mr. Cobb answered In the
negative Gay then drew his pistol and
fired at Hale, the ball entering his bresst
near the left nipple and passing through his
heart. The wounded man staggered back
into the crocery and fill dead. Gay mount
ed his horse, and flourishing his pistol in
the air, bade adieu to the village and made
his escape. An inquest was held by Jus
tice York, the veroict of the jary being that
the deceased came to his death from the
effects of a ball discharged from a pistol in
the hands of Richard Gay. Both Gay and
his victim were men of family, and tho
neighborhood is much excited over the sad
event. Gay is still at large.

Weather cool an showery. Corn and po
tatoes look well, where cultivated. We
notice for the first time, two or three fields
that are being green soiled. This system
of plowing under green crops is greatly
needed on this plateau, which has been
burnod over annually for centuries. Our
soil is much benefitted by a little judicious
assistance, and tho time will come, when
this practice will bo common as it is sensi

Kingston East Tennesseean, July o.
The beer manufacturing interest of tho
United States represents over $50,000,000.
Eight million barrels are manufactured an
nually, which, allowing for exports, aver
ages a little more than six gallons, or twenty-five
and a half quarts a head. The Ger
man consumption is put down at twenty
one and a quarter quarts per head. It is
mathematically demonstrated that tho aver
age American citizen has over four quarts
more of reason for demanding good beer in
largo glasses for two cents than tho Frank
fort rioters bad.
In North Newburg, Me., there resides an
old gentleman who has just erected a large

er. He has not had the dates of their death
put on, as be is unable lo decide this point
at present. On a recent Sunday tho monu
ment was visited by quite a crowd of tho
curious ones, while the old gentleman was
standing in front of the school house view
ing the sight with a look of satisfaction.

THE MOOBE MURDEK.
The Cass Before Justice Caldwell
Asain Attorney General Wright
Declines to Proseente Tho An
nouncement In Court Scene There
upon. From tho Memphis Appeal, J nly 31.
By nine o'clock yesterday morning ex
cited persons were running all over the c'ty
trying to find out where the preliminary
trial of Mrs. Moora and her nephew, J. R.
Hanson, would be held. Several lay wars
and two or three officers were cursed by
more than a dozen persons who, after going
to the Sscond Circuit Court, on Second
street, found Judge Halsev occupying the
room with the trial of a habeis corpus case.
The report was spread then that the trial
would take place at t-e First Circuit Court
room, which attracted a number of parsons
who wsre somewhat disappointed. It was
finally believed that the case would be
tried at Justice Caldwell's office, on
Front street, where a large crowd soon
assembled, but only asain to be
disappointed. Mr. Luke Wright, the attorney-general,
sent word to Justice Caldwell
that ha would dismiss the case if he would
bring tho prisoners down to the criminal
court between eleven and twelve o'clock,
where a large number of persons were being
tried on writs of haheas corpus. Justice
Caldwell, being under no official obligation
to remove his ornce for Gen. Wright, who is
not compelled to prosecute norresist writs
of Aa&eas corpus, as ha3 been illustrated by
the Uenjamin-McDonald trial soxo time
ago, did not leave his office. Capt. Harry
Cranmer, tho deputy sheriff, in due course
of time appeared in Justice Caldwell's
office and stated that the attoraey-geceral
declined to prosecute the case. The pris
oners, Mrs. Moore and J. R. Ranson, were
then brought before Justice Caldwell, who
"Mra. Moore, in accordance with tha
verdlclof the coroner's jury and t the in
stance of tha community, I have issued a
warrant of arrest for you. and your nephow,
Mr. Hanson, for the murder of jour hus
band, Frank M. Moora. Wo have put you
to a great deal cf trouble for the benefit of
the community, the stato of whose feelings
demanded the arrest. I now state that the
charges, founded on suspicion, have been
withdrawn against both of you, and you are
at liberty to depart this court.1'
One of Mrs. Moore's attorneys said he
wanted lo say a few words in connection
with the proceedinss. Ho said that after a
careful and candid attention to tha case, he
had satisfied himself that the prosecut on
had no foundation. Not a3 her attorney,
but as a man and as a member of society,
he could say she was not guilty. He had
talked to her In her most un
guarded moments, and felt convinced
of her innocence. He made the
statement, not as an attorney, tor in tho
interest of the accused, but In the interest
of society, with a desire that the guilty per
son to punished. Before coming to this
city, he had a largo practice In the law and
much experience in criminal prosecutions.
He had been in intimate contact with all
kinds of crime as a lawyer, and after a closa
cautious and scrutinizing intercourse with
theso accused parties, he had no hesitation,
both as a man and a member of society, iu
saying that there was not one single instance
that imputed to her guilt. He was satis
fied that the person who committed tbe
murder in the housa did not go there for
that purpose. From bis examination of and
coversation with Mrs. Moora ha was satis
fied tlere was no connection between her
and this transaction. An egregious mistake
had been made in arresting Mrs. Moore,
and society would le convinced of this.
At tha conclusion of tho attorney's
remarks, Mrs. Morre, who was dressed In
deep mourning, and wore a heavy black
vail which her hid pale face from tho criti
cal gaze of the curious, approached Justice
Caldwell's rostrum and extended her hand
to him. She was tollowed by her nephiw,
J. R. Hanson, who, upon shaking hands
with Justice Caldwell, said in a low thick
Justice Caldwell remarked: "I took
mnrh nains nd think there is no nccessitv
for going through a tedious trial, to harass
your feelingsMrs. Moore, when thera U
no evidence in the case. I made tre in
vestigation merely in accordance with the
verdict of tho coroner'3 jury, and with a
desire to satisfy popular sentiment."
Her attorney replied that Mrs. Moore had
no bad feeling in the matter, and is glad of
Justice Caldwell replied, saying to Mrs.
Moore: "I am sorry you have been put to
this trouble. Let the case be entered as a
mistrial for failure of prosecution to ap
pear." The crowd was very much dlsap
po'nted, as they evidently expected some
thing new would be elicited In the testimony
of tho witnesses.
DRIVEN AW AT BT A WOMAN.
Sonco time slnca one Justice Thompson
killed a man named Pettr Reybolt, in
Greenville, Ind., and since then he has sold
out his property and removed with his
family to Chicago. The Louisvilla Com
mercial explains why he left. It says that
soon after the killing, Reybolt's widojv
threatened to kill Thompson, and went in
pursuit of him. Fearing this woman Thomp
son did not remain at homo long at a time.
A few nights before Thompson left the
place Mrs. Reybolt went to his store and
told him if he did not tend flour and meat
to her house at once to fesd the children of
the man ho killed, she would kill him the
next time she met him. Thompson told tho
woman he would comply with her demand,
and did send tho articles required. That
night he closed his store and sold out, telling
a friend that he could uot do business there
any longer, subject to such annoyance.
