A most heart-rending accident oc curred on the railroad, near Ebenezer, Wednesday night, In which Hubert Williams, a brakeman, was killed out right. The particulars, as fur as gath ered, are about as follows: The train on which Williams was braking, having twenty heavily-loaded cars, left Knox ville, westward bound, about a quarter to nine Wednesday night, and when it was Heating Kne nezer, Williams being the only one on top of the train, the engineer whistled "on brakes," which was done, and the train checked up. He then whis tled them oT again, but, on at tempting to start, found the brakes were not oft", and he could not get up speed. So, looking out to see what was the trouble, it was discovered that Williams was not on the train ut all, and fearing that be bad fallen oil, Mr. Cummings, the Conductor, went back a short distance, and there he dis covered A II K ART-KEN DI SO SKI If T. The lifeless fcum of Williams, man gled in a most frightful manner, al most the entire tram having ruj over him. The head was severed from the body. Every bono seemed to be broken, anil not a limb or member of the body was left iu human shape ex cept one hand. Kven his clothes aud boots were cut aud torn to pieces. The mangled form was gathered up, placed in a small box, and the engine backed back to Kuoxville with them, getting here about midnight, when Esq. Ochs was sent for aud held an inquest over the remains, rendering a verdict according to the facts. The shapeless form was then dressed its well as possiblu and placed In a burial case and will lie taken to Madison ville, bis home, for interment. Young Wil liams had formerly been in the employ of the road, but the last time hail only been running twoorthree weeks. He was in tho telegiaph olllce just u abort time before lie started out Wednesday, talking and in us gnmWspirits us u-ual, and little did he think that he would so soon meet with such a horrible fate.

But the thought that Christ mas conns but once a year, came to our relief, and taking a glance at tlie customer'" t here in the store, and nv membt ring that every time that we have passed the bouse for the last few weeks it has been crowded, we came to toe conclusion that by the time the holiday are over, many a heart will be made happy, if all their goods in that that line are sold. Tln lr stock of holi day goods must be seen to lie really ap preciated, yet we feel confident that any one ordering goods from them by mail will receive prompt satisfaction.

Their stock consists of standard wi ks on History, Biography, Travel, Beligion, Poetry, Art and Science, works of Fiction, Juvenile Music and School Books of ail descriptions. Their books have all been bought at the lowest cash prices, and they are selling them on the same principle. In fact many of their goods have been bought by Sir.

OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. r.y W. r. inborn. That the perpetuity of the great American Kepuhlic depends on the intelligence of the masses, no enlight ened person will deny. '1 hut the en joyment of personal liberty, tlie suc cessful development of our free inani tions, and the very existence of Pro testantism, depend upon the education of tlie people, is demonstrated hy tbe united etl'oits of the Bnmi-di Church to paralyze, to destroy our system of public Instruction. That Ibis Church bus made this attempt does not admit of discussion. Kor years It has been stealthily laying plans to accomplish what it now boldly attempts. Should it succeed, all that is dear to American freemen will be lost ; this glorious edi fice of Kcpreseutative Government, the rich legacy bequeathed to us by our Kevolulloiiarv sires, the sublime monument of their achievements and wisdom, will fall, and full to lise ho more, 'i he same instruments of tor ture, that were used by the Inquisition of Toulouse, will he In demand and the same scenes of cruelty anil brutish bar barity that stain the past history of Hint Church will be re-enacted in America. Tlie tyrant is ever opposed to free thought, free speech, and a free press ; hence, the Bomlsh Church is a tyrant. The tyrant Berkley, Governor of the Colony of Virginia, said: "I thank God thereareho free schools nor print ing presses here, and I hope we shall nbt have them these hundred years. Gotl keep us from both." How kindled Ihe spirit of tills hea thenish sentiment, uttered by a cruel tyrant two hundred years ago to the following, from the Catholic Tele graph of the present day! " It will be a glorious tlay for Catholics in this country, when under Hie laws of jus tice and morality our school sysieni shall be shivered lo pieces. Until then modern paganism will triumph." W by tioes this Church oppose public schools'.' Because, the light of (ruth aud uirof freedom proves fatal to It. In order that it may live here, it is now al lacking the very ciiudcl of free dom, it is attempting ti destroy the very fotindallon upon which the su- pel st rue', ii re ol our Government rests; and it is mightily ut work.

The speak ers of the affirmative wero H. W. Flinn sod A. M. Smith. Negative, Will. N. Montgomery, and D. A. Amos. The contest was warm and jovial, hut the Affirmative were unsuccessful. The singing-school, as usual, we think, will be the instigation of a great mat rimonial epidemic. We have had but few schools In this section during tiie fall.

Cniversiil itlucu' inn is a ileleiise, not only against papal pow er, but ul-o against every other species ol tyranny. Without, it we are liable lo become the dupes of the demagogue, to tic tl.ld as illHtlUmellls for his own personal ag grandisement. The great reason why public schools are unpopul.tr and inef ficient in Tennessee is that tlie masses are ignorant of their results. The peo pl.) have been led and instructed by political demagogues, who know how to feel tlio public pulse, (which is tlie public puree). These political Solons. cry " taxes, taxes, taxes ! my dear fellow-count ry men, you are overburdened wilh tuxes. You cannot supportasys tem of public schools, embracing ihe Fniversily, the High School and the Common (or Primary ) School ; ut most, you can only have u Common School, uutl thut only three months iu the year." Thus we have been duped ev er since tlie Slate had an existence. The truth is. our ignorance lias cost us millions of dollars, nnd has heeu such a weight that many Stales, younger by a score of years, have far surpassed our beloved leuuessee. Not, only are political and religious liberty directly th'pendeut upon educa tion, but it is coming to be seen more aud more Unit capital aud all material possessions reacn their greatest value only in the most highly civilized com munities: Hence, it may nesateiy pre dicated that money invested by (lie State in free schools gives a larger div idend than any other investment pos sible.

Why ure the United Slates infinitely more wealthy now, than when the red man of.the forest reigned supreme'.'

Educated skill Is necessary to pro duce wealth, and the cultivated soci ety Is equally necessary to give it sig nificance.

Professor Ilrndley Vindicated.

Prof. Bradley stoutly maintained that the rock were totally unfit for the work, while others, supposed to he rock wise, as earnestly contended that there waa un heller luiiiding stone man mut which was being used. Any one who will take the trouble to examine the piers which stand in the water can satisfy themselves that rrot. Bradley was correct. In the third one from the opposite bank, aud, in fact, in all of the piers, very many of the rocks ' are broken, and tire shattering up, showing evident signs of giving way.
