Ffsht About a Watermelon.
Yesterday morning, in the vicinity of tlie

il wan, two colored gamins, had a quar
rel alout a watermelon which resulted in
a tight. While they were punimeling each
other in a very energetic way, otneer leid
appeared upon the scene ami escorted inem
to the police station.- As they were unable
to give bond ur tueirappearanee, tne umcer
started w ith them to the workhouse, but
bad hardlv reached tlie street, when Stiles
larted on" at a lively gait, dashed through
the market house, and was making good
time out Ce!ar street, when he was caught
by several citizens. He was again taken in
charge and marched on to the workhouse.
How Mie Caught I with Him.
A married lady residing near Nashville
hxs lately had occasiou to think her hus
band w.is making some bad associations, il
not, in fact, falling into evil practices, the
therefore resolved to watch bis movements,
anil, if possible, teach him a salutary les
son. The opiwrtumty was not long in
presenting itself. A few nights ago while
the object of her affections was quietly
wending his wav awav from home in com
pany with a festive friend, both il'Stined
for some sample room or club meetlng.they
met the susiecting w ife on the sidewalk.
"Why, Mary Ann, where in the world
are ou going".''' was the inquiry of tlie sur
prised husband. "I have not the remotest
idea," said she, "but I shall to wherever
you do. I tun out for that purjHise, and
shall accompany you in any direction you
In his confusion, the surprised husband
mildly asked, "But, Mary Ann. where am I
going'.'"' She kindly but firmly answered.
I don t know, William, but shall sec.
Then, not desiring tliat she should see too
much, he a-ked, "But, Mary Ann, hadn't
we better go home?'' "hc replied, "1
don't know, my dear: it's just as you say."
Discovering that she was really in earn
est, the husband bade his friend good
night, and, with Mary Ann at his side,
quietly walked homeward, and has not
since manifested any disposition to stray
lor the sake of both, it is hoped the re
formation will be permanent.

A corresixmoent of the Hnnvhi ApimiL,
writing from this city, says: "in spite of
bad crojs and hard t'mes, Nashv ille im
proves, but not so fast as lier natural or
artihcial advantages would seem to pistny.
There is too much of the capital of this
citv locked up in Lmted Males bonds,
which do no good to any one except their
owners. Capital employed in manufactur
ing, mining or agriculture is beneficial to
the whole community, but not so with
capital invested in bonds. Nashville has
railroad facilities equal to any interior city.
She, however, needs a direct railroad
through the iron regions of Hickman,
Perry, Decatur and Henderson, to Meju
phi. This would lie worth more to her
than any one she now has. The communi
cation 'between this place and Mem
phis would be quite direct if it
were not for the detention at McKenzie.
The trains, as they ran last w inter, were
very convenient, leaving here at six in the
evening and arriving at lialf past four the
next morning, running directly through.
If this plan could be permanently adopted,
all the travel from Memphis to Nashville,
and most of it from Memphis to Chatta
nooga, would come this way, since the rail
road fare is the same on boJi routes, and
the CJiattanooga passengers would have an
opportunity to stop for a time at this city.
Nashville will in tiniebeagreatmanufactur
ing place, but before this takes place dilfer
eni habits, ideas, ai'd customs must prevail.
There is enough iron and coal within a
hundred miles of this city to make it su
perior to l'ittsburg. Merc agriculture and
commerce, though exceedingly valuable,
do not of themselves maku great cities nor
a very rich country. Diversified industry
w ill alone make a prosperous people."

Sibil 1UCS Ol Uieir own jji i ic aiiairs, in or
der that they may serve the people as repre
sentatives of Davidson county in the next
Legis'ature. For several weeks past, tliat
skiifull card writer, "Many Voters," has
been haunting the newspaper offices with
communications, calling upon this man
and that, to come out as a candidate for the
29th General Asseoibly of Tennessee, in
order that "Many, voters," may nave
tlie opportunity of voting for liiin
In this, "Many Voters" lays himself open
to censure, asacaretui examination oi our
files reveals the fac that he has thus pub
licly dragged from retirement al least two
score of worthy citizens, pledging himself
to vote for each, whereas this county Is en
titled to but one and a half Senators and
four Representatives. It is qulteevldent that
"Many Voters' is either amiably reckless
in his promises of support, or must be an
unprincipled wretch who makes a practice
of railing his friends out solely for the
malicious pleasure of seeing them beaten.
THE ENEMY' TACTICS.
It is generally conceeded that no nomi
nations will be made by the Radicals, as
tlieir plan seems to be the encouragement of
the workings of disorganUers, with a view
to unite with bolters, on an Independent
ticket. The party being in a hopeless mi
nority in this county, besides being consid
erably discouraged by the course pursued
by Kercbevat, Diliin and Co., in the coun

Fatal Khooliar Affair . Cherry

. Just before one o'clock this morning, a
negro, whose name the reporter could not
ascertain, and J ha Hugh, also colored,
got into a quarrel about a woman,
in front of some negro tenement
houses, on the east 'side of Cherry street,
not far from Broad. Several other negroes
were standing nearby. The unknown ne
gro snapped a pistol at Hugh, when the
whole crowd took to their heels. George

18 years old, ran through the hallway of the

by the negro who had the pistol, the ball
takingefrbet in King's breast. The wounded
man managed to reach the back-yard, but
fell and died in a few moments. Another
negro was shot in the hand.
The murderer escaped, but the officers
are confident of effecting a capture. De

o'clock this morning.
- BOLD JAIL-BREAK LSG.
Two PrlMatn Hako Their Eoeape at
Franklin-On of Thojn Beean.
Last Tuesday evening, about 1 o'clock,
J. N. Butler, the Jailer at Franklin, Wil
liamson county, went into the jail with
supper for three negroes confined .therein.
He had hardly rtatlied the inside of the
cell when be was rushed upon and knocked
down by two of the prisoners, who, possess
ing themselves of tlie key, unlocked tlie
door of tlie jail and made a bold break for
liberty. Mr. Ballou, an invalid hrother
iiirlaw of the jailer, came to his assistance
and handed hliu a pistol. Ballet tired at
one of the escaped prisoners, and it is
thought, wounded hini, as he fell heavily
to the earth, but, he Dually succeeded in
goUiugoutof reach. There was a third
prisoner confined in the jail who made no
effort to escape. One of Uiose who suc
ceeded in getting away has been recap
tured, but the other is still at large.
Homes lor Fallen Women.
To the Union aud Ametlu&u.
Shixbyvilee, Aug. Ul, 1874. In your
pajier of tlie 2!th, 1 see lliat "several prom
inent ladies of Nashville are engaged in the
priced of establishing in this city a liouse
fW fallen women," with a javoroLld von
nieut from you for their encouragement,
and as showing the necessity for such an
institution, 1 will relate what has occurred
here during the sitting of the court, which
is yet in session. A young woman of bad
repute prosecuted tliree others of like
character, in tlie name of the State, for
violenue to her person. They were con
victed and sentenced to the penitentiary.
The prosecutrix was also arrested, kept in
jail for a time, but, on trial, was admitted.
During her imprisonment aire bevaihe seri-
ously penitent, and promuied to do better.
A few worthy gentlemen prevailed upon
the Jailer to take her to his residence until
an effort could be made to secure for her
a home. Appeals were made to her rela
tives, but in vain. Severe criticisms of la
dies induced Ue jailer, through his fain-.ly,
to refase further protection. ' Former
'friends" of the unfortunate girl offered
to provide for her, but rather than to ieturn
to a life of sin sr.d shaine, she accepted an
oiler to he retiu nod to a daa.p, (Usaial Cell
in the jail.
It then occurred to her that a
poor woman she had formerly known
in the country would let her stay
with her temporarily. kShe left the
Jail one evening on foot, and the writer
roda out noit rday tc see if she hail bpen
received, but the dismal hut was closed, the
oor woman was alisent, and the unfor
tunate girl not to he found. Those most
kindly disjiosed toward her knew nothing
of her w hatever. She did not return to
Ler former place of living, where a small
remnant of her furniture remains.
The ladies (of whom we are all justly
proud) in all tho various vicissitudes of life
are celebrated for charity ind pity, yet
w hen the case of a fallen woman is men
tioned they "fly off at a tangent," with
hardly an exception.
A nobler and more important scheme
was never planned than the one in ques
tion. It is possible in some instances to
reclaim fallen women, and no other class
of persons in this world more greatly
needs an asylum. Iet those who share in
the work be encouraged by the last words
of St. James to the twelve trilies: "Bless
ings on their efforts in providiug a refuge
for the most pitiable class of sinners."
Workmen were engaged yesterday put
ting up the advertising panels upon which
Mr. est has been so closely employed
for several weeks. They will prove a great
ornament to the Exposition building, be
sides proving a first-class advertisement to
the enterprising men who have improved
this opportunity to make their business
known. . ,
The Board of Exposition Managers will
meet every afternoon at 5 o'clock from this
time to the opening of the exhibition.
A member of the committee appointed
to assign space to exhibitors, told a reporter
for this paper yesterday that up to date
double the number of applications for
space have been made of those made up to
two weeks immediately preceeding the last
Messrs. Sweeny and PohUnaD, of the
Classification Committee, leave for Louis
ville this week for the purpose of studying
the arrangement of the Exposition now in
progress in that city, with a view of taking
advantage of any improvements which may
be suggested by the Louisville Exposition.
On the 11th inst. the Board of Managers
w ill visit the Iiouisville Exposition in a
body. During their stay they w ill be en
tertained by Mr. Kean, of the Louisville
Mr. Cole, proprietor of Cole's circus, pre

was removed it cannot be preserved.

THE TROUSDALE TRAGEDY.
Oar Correspondent aad the Banner's
To the Union and American:
I HAKrsvHXK, Sept, 1, 1S74. Having
published in your columns a statement of
the facts connected with the unfortuual
Julia Hayden tragedy, which every honest
man ik oiuy regrets but deplores as a
deed of ruffianism not kindred to tlie high
law-abiding character of our people, I fee.1,
as one requested by the leading citizens of
our county, to correct the false statement
published in tlie Jianner, that I have the
right, through your columns, to reply to its
indecent and venomous article.
' I was willing to spare the Banner this
miserable mortitiouion. .1 was satisfied
when our jieople asked a gentlemanly cor
rection witlwut any "malignant hostiltiy"
to the Banner that I was yielding more
than decent respect. Aud now, since its
indev-eut assault upon me as an "anony
mous philosopher," "ignoramus," "imbe
cile," and such like billingsgate epithets,
I am inclined to believe tliat the
greater part of Gov. Brown's in
formation (to whom it refers me)
and which caused hini to pronounce the
deed one of tlie most cold blooded and
atrocious ever heard of was founded in a
great degree upon Ihe trumped up false
hoods contained iu the very article I ob
jected to, published in the Banner, and
concerning which I decently asked a cor
rection, but which it has indignantly re
fused to do.
The Banner says it has given to its read
ers all the facts in relation thereto. I say
it has given none of them. It says it is
"w illing to publish as much more as will
throw light upon the mysterious tragedy."
I ask why then did it not, instead of giving
vent to the ver.om, resect my gentlemanly
request, and give the facts us stated in my
article and derived from the coroner's in
quest. It was a very fine opportunity. I
think, to have done so, had the Banner
been ilisjKised lo set our people right.
Had I stated that the primary object of
tlie Banner was to bring reproach upon the
law-abiding character of our people, it
would have been justified in departing from
its dignified and serene reticence to pay its
left-handed respects to me, but as I made
no such allusions, its cliarge against Tne is
grossly unjust. Nevertlieless, I am will
ing to give the Bnnn-r the benefit of
the doubt, and to suppose that
its intention In bringing to light this crime
was a good one, though 1 beg leave to in
form the sage editor of that venerable slieet
that the way to hell is paved with good in
tentions. But the temptation was too great; the
Banner eould not afford to lose the oppor
tunity to strike its city contemporary over
our shoulders. It was not satisfied with
thus exhibiting its venom, not satisfied
with the publication of an article doing
grave injustice to Trousdale county, not
satisfied with applying its epithets of "ma
lignity," "liule skull," etc, to me, and not
willing to make the atnerule Lonoral'le,
when politely reipuestedtodoso,U)ourp!Or
pie. It now se.ks to twist my communica
tion into a shape that would implicate
and place In the houe at the time of the
murder, one of our laott respectable citi
zens. This corresp indent, says tlie Banner,
states that ti e niuider was committed in a
house on "the form of Mr. Lowe. While
this statement, so far as the murder being
committed in "a house on the farm cf Mr.
Lowemay lie true, yet litis correspondent
was not guilty of, nor did he make such a
reckless aud indefinite statement. For the
benefit of all concerned, I repnxluca
statement. I sUted that site was killed in
the house of liembry Lowe, a colored man
residing on the farm of E. 1. Lowe; that
tl.e ruttians came between the hours of 12
and 2 o'clock; that tliey demanded admit
tance; that Ht.i reoued; that tiiey replied,
"We do ut wish to molest you Uncle Hem,
we want to sc-e tliat colored school teacher
you have in there,"" that Hem told them
that if tliey would wait until he called
Mas' Fink,' he w ould 1 1 them in; that, on
proceeding up stairs, yelling at the top of
his voice b r Mas' l'ink. which evidently
implied t!:;,t he was some distance off. oiiu
of tjicm turned awav, spying to the othir,
"This will not ilo, wo lad better
get away from heie:" that ihe nllef
oa tiuui.t a lirwi lt,ioigh
the d.vr, trie shot resulting in the death of
Julia Il.iyileti: and that it was a purely ac
cidental shot tliat killed her.
I niaii-e no - atlem, as the Banner
charges, to disguise the facts in the case,
nor did I hesitate to d noiin.x '.ho :.
tu ntuiaus. Tne sltoi was fired at random,
and was as apt to have killed Hem, some of
his children or his wife, who was sitting
by the girl's side iu the bed, as Julia Hav
diin. And nox J a?ki where on tlie face of
God Almighty's earth, outside the imbecil
ity of the Banner, could such conclusions
or inferences have been drawn ? Was such
deliberate newspaper trickery ever exhib
ited before? I hoiie not. If so, God de
liver us from such a press. Tliat my lan
guage should have been so garbled, so mis
construed, so misunderstood, 1, however,
attribute not so much to tho wad's xr,a
lignity, as to its absolute want of LraitLj.
It may be proper to state that the iueof
the ii';inrr oofi'ninir. the ajttcta above
referred to, failed to reach me until the
date of this writing; hence my delay in
responding. As was intimated in my last
article and as will be seen from the Srnli
n I published here, our people are very in
dignant at the course of tho Bannrr.
"his aiticic may a near very severe in
some particulars, but I ask its. eutire publi
cation, injustice to myself and our people.
Will you please grant the favor? I think I
have the right to be heard. I want it pub
lished, if not as a communication as an advertisement-

A UtMMippy Letter From a XaMhTille
', The following extracts from a letter
written by a Nashville Udy, deseriiitiye t-f
Mackinaw Island. one of the most popular
summer resorts of the Northwest, w ill be
read with interest:
"I must try to entertain you for a little
while with a meagre description of this
beautiful island. It is nine miles longand
three in breadth, and is situated lietween
lakes Huron and Michigan, in the straits
of Mackinaw. The island boasts of some
6'X) inliabitants, mostly a mixture of
French and Indians.
"The furt (in which troojis ar stationed
at. all times,) is on a high cliff, which
teatlcs tlie villaee. There are a nuinlierof
hotels eulhcieiit to accommodate the 500
visitors spending the summer here.
The mail arrangements are very
unsatisfactory, on account of delays
occasioned by circuitous routes, but it is
promised that by anotiier season this w 111
be remedied. It seems liarbarous to have
only three mails a w eek in this day of fast
things, but such Is the lamentable fact
heraT We are as comfortably situated as
could be, away from home. I lave two
rooms .opening together, well furnished,
fronting the lake, a refreshing breeze blow
in all the while, and tlie sun shining in at
the windows all day. Immediately in
front is a romantic little isle called from
its shape ."Round Island." A long dark
line in the dim distance defined against
the horizon, is the uiaiu land, and then tho
clear blue waters, sometimes lushed into
white cand waves, and then smooth ami
bri"ht as burnished silver and doited with
vessels as far as the eye can reach. The
waters are so clear, one can see every stone
at the bottom, at the depth of thirty feet.
The drives on the island are exceedingly
pleasant ami full of interest. Carriages
a-e alwavs ready at command. We drove
fiist to the "British Landing," a fine peb
bly beach and good harbor, where the Eng
lish landed in 170, len. they attacked
Fort Mackinaw. Next to the "Sugar
Loaf so called from its shape- -an im
mense rock, rising out of a smooth plateau,
to the height of LiO feet, and crowned with
evergreens and vines. It !oks like some
grand old sentinel, put there to keep ever
lasting a natural bridge as the
far famed one oyer Cedar Creek, Va.,
and cailed "Arch Rock" a soft, calcareous
rock, through which the waters of the past
liave evidently forued a passage, leaving a
splendid arch one hundred feet high and
forty wide, with a pathway across the top,
in some places quite naiTovv.
Next comes "Old Fort Holmes," exten
sive earth works thrown up by the Ameri
cans in defense agaiust the English. Ou
the site a rickety observatory has been
erected, with very many steep steps leading
to the top, up w hich I ventured, and was
. well repaid by one of the finest views on
w hich my eyes ever feasted. "As I view
tliese scenes so iliarniing," I sigh for a
i gifted pen to wrile in softly flowing w onij
of poetic fire, rhe subject is inspiring,
and simple descriptive, language gives but
the idea of a flower after you have plucked
away all the petals and left but tlie shorn
There are beautiful springs running from
under hoary vii-clad cliffs, clear as crys
tal aud cold as ice. One of tlie placei to
visit, when sailing, is called the "Devil's
Kitchen," a singular succession of smail
caves, washed by the dashing w aves out of
tlie side of the bluff, with a limpid spring
flowing through. Visitors are accustomed
to leave their cards here in lioaor of his
Satanic 3iajosty, I suppose. Reniemberin
the tnle proverb, "Fools names, like tlieir
faces," etc., I ouly took up a stone ami wrote
on the rock, "Nashville, lemu, lo74." Just
overtopping this is the "Lover's Iap," so
called from some tradition of an Indian
girl throw ing herself from the summit into
the lake, from being thw arted in her affec
tions. The climate here is the finest for sum
mer I have ever felt; cool enough for woolen
clothing all the time, and a tire morning
and evening would always feel comfortable
tome. We sleep under from two to four
blankets. The air contains so much oxy
gen that it exhilerales like a stimulant. I
brouglit stimulants with me, as yen know
I took, them try advice at home, but have
tasted none tf the vile stun since I came
here. I dou't feel the need of it.
The fish are the finest in the world. Tlie
Mackinaw trout are very similar iu color
and flavor to fresh salmon, ami I give them
the preference, but the white fish is con
sidered the greatest delicacy. We have
them prepared deliriously aud put before
us three times a day. Fond as I have
always been of fish, I am a little afraid that
before leaving here I will be like the chil
dren of Israel weie by the quails.
Cherries and the red raspberries are now
in their prime, and tlie latter are excellent.
I eat them daily for dinner and tea. It
may sound rather strange to hear that
green peas, bunch beans and lettuce grown
on the island, have just come in.
It is an expensive place, because all sup
plies are brought from Detroit, 400 miles
I am s'eadily gaining strengths You can
form some idea of my improvement, w hen
I tell you that I get up at 6 o'clock every
morning aial walk a mile before break
fast. - Mas. M .

A good example of muscular CIu istianity
is rectmled of Father Lynch, an Irish priest,
formerly attached to the Roman Cat holic
College below Niagara Falls, and who was
afterwards Bishop of Toronto. Returning
liome one dark night one horseback, Father
Lynch was accosted by a footpad with a
bl udgeon, who ordered him to dismount and
surrender his horse and purse. The rev
erned fatlier did as he was ordered, and in
so doing, sprang on his assailaut and laid
him flat on 1. is "back. "Are you an Irish
man:" 'I am. sir." "A Catholic."
"nre that I am." "Well, I am Father
Lyncli, and shall take your punishment
out of the hanils of the law," saying which
lie laid his riding whip upon the back of
the astonished offender with such vigor
that the la: tor probably registered a vow
that his next assault would be on a lay
man. Happy rEnsoNi. There are persons
who may be called fortunate, if not elect

their natural constitution, desire only what
is good, who act for love, and show pure
morality in their actions. In these happy
