" CotoXEL Oscar Turner is on the war- path in t'-istrict. He will make a brilliant canvass as alternate elector for the State at largo. The friends of Judge Crossland are urging him to run for Congress against J udge Trimble. In the Eighth Congressional District Democratic Convention, held at Brown ville, Tenn., Hon. John W. Leftwich was nominated for Congress, and Colo nel W. W. Vaughan nominated for Pres idential Elector. The convention was large and enthusiastic, and sanguine hopes are entertained that, in view of the Radical dissensions in the Eighth Dis. triet, Mr. Leftwich will be elected. VrRrrvr A is "t.-fft:-"-1 ler-s toral vote for Seymour. And for tho same reason Mississippi; and eouie other States are to bo tin reconstructed. If "recon struction" does not make &urc of negro rule, then it is "uo go." The wine crop in France is described, uniformly, as the most abuudant and the best in quality that has ever been grown within the memory of man. r am A Greek maid being asked what for tune she would bring her husband, re plied": "I will bring him what gold can not jurchase ; a heart unspotted, and vir tue without a"staiu which is all that de scended to me from my-parents." '"Tiiey y.v'-w that Grant is going to withdraw, and u!Stno the race for the Presidency.

Hold ou. Grant! If you let go you will have "spoiled the promise of your Fpring" and cheated tho cow ! The lladical papers spend a great deal of ink, nnd try to make a great deal of capital about what such Southern men as Hampton, Cobb, Toombs, ttc, said down ?outh. That i all "played out."

Clark is an important witness against him. THE Alabama Radical State incut, in one respect at least, (Jovern is in ad vance of the Tonuc.-5.-iee concern. The former has removed all political disabili ties so far as they can from the disfran chised class. At the same time, howev er, it has determined that the Legislature shall east the electoral vote of the State. The United States government has taken possession of tho Ilot Springs of Arkansas and made them free to the world. The title of the property i in dispute, but the government holds it sub ject to thedecisbvy the Supremo Court. It id thought tL-the Hon. John Vor rispey will become the purchaser. Two thousand Germans, residing in the upper portions of Philadelphia, have formed a Seymour and Blair Club. These Germans have heretofore acted with the lladical party. Philadelphia will elect the Democratic ticket by at least 1D,000 majority. Ideas, said Voltaire, arc like beards some only get them when they grow up, and women never have any. mm n The Mexican debt, acknowledged by the Government, is 5100,000,000, or -512 50 per head for the whole popula tion. Of tbia C0,O0O,00O is duo Eng lish creditors, and a small amount only to the United States. Rebel SrEECH. The New Albany Ledger tells tho following pretty good one : A radical, while hearing the De claration of American Independence read at the Fourth of July celebration at Hidgevillc, whero it recites that "the King had cjuarWrcd soldiers among us in time of peace," turned upon his heel and walked away, muttering that "he would not lissen to any such a d d rebel Fpccch as that." Fuom the Far West The Echo. Scarcely has the triumphant shout of the victorious Xoeracy of Kentucky died away, until tho echo comes bound ing back, over the prairies, from the far West. Kentucky strikes the key note of the campaign, and Montana takes up the chord, responding in a signal Democrat ic victory. And so it goes. State after State will join iu the chorus, until, on the first Tuesday in November, tho grand swelling anthem will gladden tho hearts of the American people, from ocean to ocean: "Democracy triumphant; the country redeemed." The soul goc3 highest when the body kneels lowest. t-'' trossianu. . ad r t i i i i . t n.lfi1"1 hot July afternoon, the air Crossland has been, by an act of Coa .Mdl of slumbrous electricity, and the gress, relieved from the disabilities irti; fUnshine sleeping dreamily on the close which he labored, on" account of his pi j t grass in front of thcMcrriCo'd hotel; ticipation in the lato "so-called' reb.U 'li'e Joa 'i the glen, towards the rail linn Tt,;i- .i t j rw31 trackt you could distinctly hear the lion.

Some true heart has given expression to its gener ous nature in the following beautiful .-t n timcnt : "Never desert a friend when enemies gather round him. When sieknoss fills on tlie heart, when the world is dark and cheerless is the time to try a true friend. They who turn from a scene of distress betray their hypocrisy, and prove that interest moves them. If you have a friend who loves you and studies your interest and happiness, bo sure and sus tain him in adversity. Let him feel that his former kindness is appreciated, and that his love is not thrown away. Herd fidelity may be rare, but it exists in the heart. Who has not seen and felt its powers? They deny its worth who nev er loved a friend, or labored to make a friend happy." fian Explosion at l!ic Capitol. About half-past two 1. M., to-day the inmates of the 'Capital building were greatly startled by au explosion, which took place in the basement of the build ing, which shook the entire portion of tlie old Lapitol building to its louud.-itiou. Au an examination showed that a gas main under the centre of the dome, in what is known as the Washington erypt, had burst with terrible force, blowing out all the heavy frame work surrounding it, tearing tho dJis and frames and win dows to f pliiiteV.-, and scattering the frag ments through the basement passages in all directions. The effect of the explo sion was such as to create serious alarm for a time for the safety of the building, which, however, was allayed by the prompt manner which tho officers and laborers aCwut the place took to prevent the spread of fire.

Perhaps you think I didn't sec you lingering on the very threshold of their door thi-s morning, talking nonsense about the trumpery wild roses you had becu gathering. On the threshold of a young man's room! Elfrida, I don't know what you are com ing to." "Dut, aunty, tlie door was wide open, and Mrs. Glenn was iu the hall, and Isa bella llaymoud, and Major Parker's daughters " "I don't care if the twelve tribes of Israel were there, it makes it none the less improper for you" and here her aunt Betsy rolled up her eyes in a fear ful cataleptic manner. "Now stop drop ping those big tears over the turkey-red joiniug of that uilt. I never saw such a baby iu my life never." What relief it was to poor huutcd lit tle Elfrida when Mrs. Major Parker cauio iu, with her stiff, rustling silks and her basket of kuittiug work, nnd she was allowed to steal away into the inner room, with, pricked finger, aching spinal col umn, and ayes yet dewy with testrs. "I'll be married as soon as e--1 can," thought Eifie, with an indigmMt pout of the cherry lips. "If I thought I should ever live to be an old maid like aunt Lctsy, I'd jump into the river I would." And Eifie crept away for a walk, low spirited enough. Tho afternoon was well aovanccd before Mrs. Parker departed; and Miss Betsy Whistleton, politely-seeing her to the door, stood looking after her portly retreating form. 'I woudor where Elfrida has gone to, a- .,i ihn jjpmsicr-aunt. "Jown m stlewy where, I know, for the door of his v)oiii is 'lalf-onen. Now, I wonder " -V isa jsetsy wnistieton stretched lier lotr neck curiously towards the ueiirh boring apartment she looked up the hall and down the hall, but there wa3 not a soul iu sight. "I don't really believe they exchange notes," said Miss Whistleton, bi?thcy did and its really a very excellent op portunity " She paused again and listened ; still no sound ; save stray footsteps in tc hall bilow. "I think it's my duty," said Miss Bet sy, setting her colorless lips together, aud advauciug on tip-toe into the apartment of Messrs. Castlewynne and Ermine. "I never was in a man's room before thought the lady, with a little bundle and a simper. "Dear me, what a variety of boots and slippers, right in the middle of the floor! Is this brandy aud water? No, it is lemonade and a box full of ci gars, as I live, and a novel! Oh, the de pravity of young men! I really hope I shan't be contaminated by the awful at raospherg. And thi3 curious wooden thiug?

I do believe that Elfrida took it to make this piece of folly and nonsense with. Miss Whistleton olevated her eyes and hands in holy horror. "Two-whtde inches! I wonder if Kl frida ever thought what a sin it is" to stoai. The inquisitive spinster tip-toed about the room, veering iuto boxes, opening bottles, and looking behind sofas; but still she found no condemning proof of a correspondence between Mr. Castlewynnc and her nieco Klfiida. She was just i- .... wynnc pprung up the stairs, two steps at the time, and strode along the hall, lol ... . 4 . .- . iuiss leLsy maue a rush lor the uoor, i . i . rr..i. t but she was tpo late. Tom's speed of locomotion had been greater than she had calculated upon, and with a blind impulse of coneealmcut f:he darted into the elo.jot and shut herself in, among the dressing gowns, shooting coats, and obit looking bifurcated garments that filled her spinster soul with horror. "They'll go out again, pretty soon," thought Miss Iktsy, panting, and she held on desperately to the inner handle of the door, "and then I can just slip into my own room." JJut no such adenrmment appeared at hand. M r. Castlewynne and his friend sat themselves down and deliberately lighted their cigars; the blue.vapur stole, spioey and pungent, thro1' the key hole. "I shall choke," thought Mi.-s P.etsv. "Now look here. Tom," mine, apparent! v resumiu i:d Mr. Er- thc conversa tion wincli had hcen broken on, "tneru s no use in being a faint hearted fool!

"But still," pursued Castlewynne, Ei fie has tender little notious, about nev er marrying without her aunt's consent, and if we could pur.-uado her to give it "Never." said Ermine. Who could expect a shrivelled up old fossil like that to Halloa! what's that ujis-.f "For Aunt Betsy, h aii'-stiiled in the closet and choked with cigar smoke, had given a spasmodic "kcteh-a" of a sneeze.

Halloa!'' For tho door flew open, vith a jerk, revealing Miss Betsy Whistleton, shrink ing back into a corner! One moment Catlewynne stared the next a brilliant idea flashed aero.-s his mind; he shut the door :i?ain and bolted it, instantaneously.

An Issa on VMU im It is with much pcrterbity of mind that I approach the suljeck matter of this css.i, owinir to my non-experience in the widdcr line. I'm pcrfeckly at home with cuny other class of femail wiiuiuin ccptiu these. ihe airaest waruin I ever resceved from my maytcrnal payrcnt when I put on my lust Jong-tailed cote and standing koller, was " Ichabu j, look out for the widdcrs." So I always kept my eye peeled for 'cm, and I ain't got over the babbit yit, so much so that Sally .Maria scz I'm a moddle husband in res pock to widders, and she can trust me out o'nitcs. This much cxplanes my possission on the widder question. j Widders range under different beds. Fnstly, war viddors ; sccundly, lone widders; thurdly, grass widdcrs; and forthly, Kaliforny dittos. There was a sort called Kancrday widders, but their husbands cum home last summer, so they ain't much widdery now none to speak on. Some widdcrs are the sort what keep bordin-howses and taik in young men and ole bachcllcrs at so much a week, incladin "iuda. They ginncrally have more or less j'ung and unmarried darters, in sootabul condishion for takin the vows of Himen onto em. War widders have been very common late times, tho' I karut say much for their consistency. But menny of 'cm have been very industrious and have ad ded muchly to the popperlation of the country while their husbuns was gone down South. Grass widdcrs are the kind what don't ware morcuing and are very easy to git acquainted with. Furthermore depon ent saith not. But the Kaliforny widdcr is the big gest thing in the hole lot. Surntimcs she's married and sumtimea she ain't, jest as it happens. It she axidently gits spliced tier Jius bun usualy goes to the solt springs, and dies for his hclth, or else on a forrin tower and never turns up agin on this side of terry finny. In either case she's jest the same, ollus a smilin, and wares weeds or ribbins, jest which takes best. She's sum for a time and never lax for words to tork with. She's dangerous animile to bo round where thcres fellers with suscpti bul harts under their weskits, cause he noes jest how to do it, bavin ben there aud back sevural times. This variety of widdcrs is well dis tributed over the country, but it is found in the greatest quanity and state of per fexion wharo thcres the most grcenbax a fiotin round. I-loulda't advise a feller to git one on oni unless he's struck ile pretty deep, or else sees a good chance to make a draft onto a bank or sum sich financial operation. In those cases it micrht ray but it's rather risky. I might extend my remarks on the widder toppic ad in definitely, becase it'll bare it, but I alius believed in a feller's stoppin torking when he haint got noth- . . -- i in more to say. x ours as useie, IciIABUD SPINK8.
