We have already printed thousands of election tickets, and our forms are al ready ud and ready for use again. Or ders lelt at the Herald office or the old Mail office, will receive attention at once. It is more important to candi dates to have plenty ol tickets under the Nick Akin plan than at a regular election. tvery candidate should nave a sufficient number in each civil district If the boxes are carried around, voters will be met upon the road and on their farms, and not a tenth part ot them will have either pencil or paper to make out tickets with.

He is linking splendid, is ele gant in conversation, and is famous tor his social finalities and amiable disposition. Dr. eitockard s very interesting letter iroin Florida to the Herald was read with much pleasure and interest by his many friends in this vicinity. Its simnlicitv of style, di rectness of purpose, and earnestness, make a truestorv: while the gravity ef the subject treated lifts his experience and observation to the dignity of a STate pai-r. It stands out from other gushing reports from that quarter, like a whale's back in a sen of pro sy stupidltv. We hope he will write oflen- er, as nis menus would time greni ueiigui in reading his interesting letters. Hhakspeare says there is nothing 111 a name.

We irot a elimDse ot her face, which is sweetly classic: eyes of mute eloquence, and a form that is willowy graceful.

Oooch, Kittrell Cat hey, received a large assortment of goods, at their store on Cath eys" Creek on last Saturday evening. Mr. Stephen Worley also returned the same day from Nashvillle with an outfit for a new store at the same place. This is a good stand for selling merchandise, and we predict it is destined at no very distant day to become a flourishing village. Messrs. W. A. Kittrell and L. K.

SANTA IE ITEMS. Our village Is not at all lonesome now; we have visitors in abundance. Almost every day we have a detachment of candidates shakt:;g our hands and enquiring into the health of our '..i.::l!cs with great earnest ness. We thank f hem for irf-hig so conside rate as to conic only by platoons, ns we w ill be able, thus to review the w hole regiment without losing much of our time, which, owing to the very bud weather of the past two months, is particularly valuable tons Grangers, in the hills, at this season. We have words of welcome and cheer lor all that come; we wish they could all be elected, provided always that said election would cost the good people nothing. We have but one very seclnl agreement to make with them all, and that we will enforce by con stant repetition until each candidate agrees to It that we must have a turnpike from Santa Fe to Columbia. Ho the remaining battalions ot this army that are yet to come may know that the only conditions by which to hope tor our votes in the Santa Fe country, is to vote for a good turnpike from here to Columbia, at each and every time they may have such an opportunity. We do think the road from hereto Columbia is the worst in tin-State, and there Is no blame to le placed on the overseers and hni.ds, lor they have done all they could do, and now u.e r.a.l. in many places, is nearly impassable. Yel, the road oould be i.iade a good turnpike, easier than any other teu miles in the county, because there is abun dance of rock and creek gravel In easy reach of any siint, to make it good with little hauling. There is a large lodge of Grangers at t'.iis place.organized some three weeks since, by Mr. tirtltlth, of Iahviile. There lb piouiise of It being quite a success among the fariUr ers of this section. We have no school here now; Mr. Church, we unuernr"'- wiU begin his second ses sion soon and has a good prospect for a school through the summer.

The Methodist Church pulpit this year is fllled bv Mr. Graves, a good man an in teresting preacher, and we believe a general favorite with both Methodists and Presbyte rians here. 1 here is a great deal of sickness around at thistfine. especiatv among the children.

The Morris Grlflln case was tried last week. The State was represented by j.t I- Coch ran and Joe. H. t ussell. Capt. Fussell made t he best speech he ever luade lu his life. The defense waa made by Judge Wright, Col. I 1. Myers, and Col. A.M. lxtoney. It has rarely been our lot to hear such able speeches. The jury were out about two davs. and could not Agree upon a verdict. A mistrial was eutered in tha base. Mr. Grif fin will remain in custody until his bond Is renewed. Major E. F.

You nave doubtless heard that the organ in the Presbyterian Church in Columbia has recently been put in thorough repair and tune. It was in snch a dilapidated condition that it has not been used for several months. Repeated efforts were made to secure a competent person for the work irom abroad, but without success, in this emergency the committee applied to Capt. R. I. Smith, of the Athenaeum, who, after examining the instrument, promptly replied that he could do the work, and if he did not give entire satis faction, would make no charge for his services. He nas completed tne work, and we think it nothing more than justice to Capt. Smith to say that he has given entire satisfaction, not only to tne committee, but to every member of the church and congregation. The work has been done in such a manner as to reflect great credit on the workman, and we ieel proud that we have such a live man in our community. J. c. Mitchell, H. P. Skavy, John Frikrson. BEAR CREEK ITEMS. Three young Bear Creekers were pres ent at a nice little party, at tne real dence oi Mr. Walter Akin, near Mt, Pleasant, one night last week, and till a late hour did they "chase the glowing hours witn tlvincr feet." Tne Dartv was composed of beautiful ladies and hand some young men, ana an seemed to be very nappy. The accomplished laay 01 the bouse, by her Kind and nospitaDie manner, made the evening agreeable to everybody, except one. In the midst of the gay throng, there was one sad heart; because the lair queen ol his heart waa not mere. Miss Dorothea, daughter of A. J, Akin, departed this lite on the 9th inst., at the residence of her father, on Bear Creek. She bad been an invalid confin ed to her bed for a long time, and had seen but little pleasure In this lite. Death has released her from the afflic tions and troubles to which we are heir, and we trust she has obtained the re ward promised the finally taithful. We deeply sympathize with her aged par ents in this their sad bereavement; but he dispensations of heaven are just. and the Lord chastise! h his neoole.

We have had no public demonstration as yei, relative to senator Sumner's death. He being a stranger in these parts, the people thought tbey would have no unnecessary luss about the matter. We have not been visited here by any temperance crusaders as yet, and 8. S. craig and J. rv. Lowrance are still deal ing out the "O be joyful" as usual. John R. D.

James H. Adkisson, our village mer chant, has taken in a partner, Mr. Al bert Sowell, son of Capt. David R. Sow- ell, ot the north side of the river. Mr. Sowell received his mercantile training I in Columbia, where he formerly clerk ed. The style of the new firm will be, Adkisson & Sowell. Success to them. Mr. Irby Adkisson and Mr. Joel H.

A nartv left Mt. Pleasant the third week in February, for the waters of Pi ney Creek, in Lewis County, to hunt deer. Col. J. W. B. ( Bulger) Thomas was in immediate command of the forces that, left Mt. Pleasant; Capt. W. BiiHe, of Hampshire, commanded a de tachment from that vicinity. II. JJ. Ricketts, the Colonel's right-bower, was th chief commissary, assisted bv Or derly Wm. Lanier, who paid especial at tention to tne on department,, oam Smith, alias "old Sam Slow," Ed. Pul- liam, Frank Alexander, John Brooks, Wat Jordan, isuigcrs rooster) ano w. Parker brought up the rear. The Colo nel, being a man ot indomitable will, could not stop on account of the un pro pitious state of the weather, but order ed all to mount and move off promptly, which thev did, going the route known as the Gordon road. Everything went on swimmingly, it being very wet, un til the Colonel dismounted to adjust nis saddle blanket. When he attempted to remount, the girth, which was npt as tight as some of the rest pf his rigging, gave way, and our gallant commander made a deep impression on the road, as well as ourselves. We encamped the tirst night at an antiquated house known as the Cooper or Whitesides place. Here our Colonel, by special in vitation, supped with his orderly, and afterwards took lunch with commissary Ricketts, which consisted of rations of bacon, seasoned with barren hay. Be ing very much fatigued, we all retired very early, except the Colonel and Sam Slow, who did not like our Colonel's accommodations, and went to the near est hotel. The colonels particular friend, "Fox Squirrel," was not along on this hunt, which we suppose was tne cause of bis long face and doleful ex pression, and after we had gone to bed he began to sing a solemn song, which he thought was very appropriate, as it reminded him' of the missing cne. As he gathered courage with the theme, his powers appeared to increase as he pro ceeded, and though nothing vulgar or noisy mingled in his melody, its strength and melancholy tenderness grew on the ear, until the ai- was tilled with the simple-homage ot a soul! that ssemed almost spotless. This seemed to affect our "Cricket" very much, who gave an honest recognition to our Colo nel's sweet voice, by an occasional chirp, cr j-aiher giunt. As this Lj a season of loug nights, it Was a long time before the deep obscurity which precedes the day begins to yield to the returning light, w hich was made known by the Colonel's "Bantam," who never fails to crow at an early hour. We think il there is any earthly scene that can be pretjeritai to the enses ot man to soothe his cares an temper his passions, it is the hours of changing nignt into morn ing, after terrible night of rough beds and no cover, or sleeping on the floor; and covering with the door andthe crowing of this faithful "Roostar" was looked for with a good deal ofpleasure. The party moved off to join Capt. Bii fleat Logan's Camp, which was named after that celebrated Indian Chief, who, like our gallant Colonel, never felt teai. Capt. Biitte coming up, accompanied by Squire Andy Akin and Will Hines, we all moved on, passing near the tomb ot Capt. Lewis, the great Rocky Mountain explorer. This is a lonely looking spot, so much in keeping, ss we thought, with the sad and gloomy man who took his departure to the "dark Valley ol Shadows," by suiciding here. We ar rived at camp at an early hour, pitched our tent, and prepared for the hunt. We were joined by W. R. Kindel, T. M. Kittrell, and Lieut. Wiley Harris, on Monday. Pathfinder Bob Frierson waa expected, but owing to the freshet, and Bob's great dislike-for uaier, he failed to come. We commenced the bunt by our Colonel killing two noble bucks at one stand, since ISnlner baa abandoned "Aunt Susan" and taken up with "Miss Betsey," he has been doing agreat deal better. He hated to give her up, for he always regarded her as a trusty com- panion, and, as "Bill Arp" says, there is something so soothing in the name. Bulger says be never had any luck since she was bandied by the Hoot Doctor who lives on Piney. He thinks she waa conjured by an application of some of the Doctor's yerbe. The Doctor was not allowed to tamper with "Miss Betsey" on this occasion: consequently the Colo nel did some some fine shooting, killing two deer and wounding two others, at five shots. It does seem that he got a-holt oi Capt. Biffle's sweetheart, bow ever, for she wouldn't stand cocked, and snapped, blowed and scattered. It is unnecessary to give this hunt in detail; suffice to say, we had an exhilarating time, and killed seven very large deer. Of these the Colonel killed two, Kin lei two, Lieut. Harris one, Hines one, Parker one. The only thing that creat ed any uneasiness on the hunt was the losing of the Colonel's "Bantam." He was sent into the drive by the Colonel, and ordered to go south, but as this is the season for birds of his plumage to migrate, be instinctively went north. Fortunately for the young rooster, he was riding an animal that belonged to one or tne party wno bad more interest in the mule than he bad in the rooster, and went and found him, very much to tne spring cniciten s aengnt. Saturday morning, with Bad hearts. we bid adieu to our old camping ground. which is connected with many sad rema miscences and pleasant associations. Bulger was very much a fleeted, and after heartily embracing John A., the itoot Doctor, ne made a dive at Joo, tne Wolf T amer, and glued bis lips so tight ly to Job's that we thought he would never let go. It was like a kiss that Byron speaks of, of Robert A. Machin atd Anna D'Arfet, that startled the wood of Madura. After which he rode off singing, -1 ne kiss, dear jod, tny lips nas lert Shall never part from mine, Till September hours restore the gltt In tain ted back to thine." They all returned home that evening. except three, who went t'to Newburg, where they met Judge Nixon, who was noiding court, and presiding witn his usual dignity. Mai, J. D. Pennington, who was mentioned at Raw Hide. Ala.. for Oovernor. and Capt. Jack Moore, of centrevine, were there, attending tne tsar. Jioth were in splendid spirits. It is not known at what time this party left, nor when they ot home, as our notes were lost here. We liked to have forgotten to! mention that John A. H has quit tbejRoot business and is an agent for a machine, an entirely new inven tion. Col. Bulger is his agent in this county; he has tried it and says it is a complete success. Give him a call. ONK OF '.EM. Mt. Pleasant, March 23d, '74. Eeller from Flat Creek. To the Editor of the Herald and Mail : As I promised to give you a short his' tory of our fine county up here in the cedars, I will commence. I will just say right here, tbat our lands are level, and susceptible oi all the advantage of fer tilizing, and when we put a fertilizer on our lands it stays there. We have some rock to contend witn, out it can De re moved, as it has been done on Capt. J. M. Billington's place. He rents out his land, and, and compels the cropper to get ud all the rocK and stumps, and pay so much rent. It is certainly a good plan. We have the best working men. up here in the cedars, in the county, ard 1 dare any man to contradict my asser tion, for this reason: We make bne crops, and as soon as tbey are laid-by. we go rigut into tne ceuars ana tei rans. posts, and pickets, tor tne people ci Co lumbia and vicinity. So, you see, we are at work all the time. Now for our pike. I want to say a word or two to the clever gentlemen of Bear Creek, and see it I can't wake them up one time. I will commence witn my iriend, Mr. 11 H. Ogilvie, who has a tine farm, and lud enough to settle a colony of Dutch on. and has it finely improved, witn a fine gin and good cedar fences. He is a live man, I think, and needs a good pike as badly as we do. as an tne cotton gin ned at his gin bas to be hauled to Co lumbia, and has to pass through the Lel- twicn lane, which it is out 01 tne ques tion for a team to get through empty. Mr. Ogilvie has one of the cleverest wo men for his wife in his neighborhood, who should bave a good pike to go to town on. Well, next comes Esq. 1. K. Hyg, who wants a pike, and then R. M Nicholson, who wants it also. Then cowes the cedar folks, and I will say lor tbem. one and all. that tbey want tne .ila ami .... ill V, i i 1 , 1 it tmm isthi-klatn'a 1" w -' ..... ... . . v .. - to Jackson's store, on the Franklin pike, it Columbia and the men on Bear creek will wake up to the importance of a good road. Alf, bit tbem one more time tor me, on the necessity or a pike up this way. When it is built, you can then come up and take a trout or two. as Flat Creek has some very line fish in it. and I know you are a dear lover of the line. Well, I see there is some hope ol the candidates agreeing to a settle ment in the way of a convention, or somejplan tbat will giye general satis faction. Ao mote tt be. ISick Akin's plan is the one I had fixed np as the best thing to be done, and if any ot the candidates reruse to abide bis proposi tion. my word for it. thev are beat men I hope 1 will be able to come down soon. as I am getting over my paralysis, ana hope I will be in Columbia the first Monday in April. I have been invited by some good men to be there that day, and give tbem a talk on pikes and the necessity ot harmony in tne conserva tive party, I will write you again. Flat Cheek. MOORE'S SI I EES ITEMS. Very few men have done much farm ing in this vicinity. Wheat is very fine, but not a great deal sown. Mr. Moore's mills are very good, and the new millers, Messrs.

HICKMAN COCWTY ITEMS. Our famers are exceedingly backward this season, the weather being so inau spicious lor farming purines, that scarcely anv farm work has been accom plisbed up to this time. The wheat crop looks well, and every indication gives hope of a good crop. The acreage sown mis season is rauen larger tban usual, and it no disaster befalls the crop, we will have an abundance of wheat the present year. The recent he ivy rains nave ueen very disastrous to tne larms, and on all the water courses they are considerably damaged, both by the loss ot fences and washing of the hillsides, The damage on Sugar Creek has been immense. Some places are almost en tirely ruiued on the low lauds. At least it will take years to restore them to their usual productiveness-,. The fishing season is ranidiv aunroach ing, and the consequence is, tbe young ladies ot Centreville have forme 1 a fish ing clnh. with Miss Delia Claeett. Presi dent; Miss Annie Clagett, Secretary, and Miss Cora Nixon, Treasurer. Their by laws and rules have not been published as yet; the only rule that has been made public is: that only lour manied ladies will be permitted to become members of tne club. Mrs. Marsh Johnson. Mrs. Jack Moore and Mrs. Nixon, are appli cants ior memDersnip, nut wnetner suc cessful or not, bas not been disclosed The Grange movement seems to be tne all absorbing topic of interest in our county at this time. We have about ten or twelve Granges in full operation now, and application for several others, and will, doubtless, have more science in farming developed now. than we have naa neretotore. Whether there is any political significance attached to the order or not, we know not. On the subject ot candidates, iustice cannot ne meted out. in a small group of citizens who casually met on the streets a lew days since, there were counted nine candidates and four veters In the last few days several other an nouncements bave been made, and it nas Deen wisely suggested bv the citi zens in some ot the rural districts if the numbers continue to increase that when they commence the regular can vass, to go in retculas urniv sivla hm. their commissary tents, oxu.. and canm out, as mere are out lew districts in the county that can feed and lodge such a large number of meu. Shady Groye seems to be the attrac tive part of our county at this time, as nearly every week they have from two to hve lawsuits some of civil and some of criminal cases and the Hon. Dent Pennington, from Maurv countv. is prominent as an attorney in nearly all the cases tried, and some of the citizens think of taking steps to have the Court house moved to their place, and in tbe event of a failure, to try and have Lew is county and Isewburg attached to Shady Grove. Mr. Morrill Ouilliu. who moved from this county toObion countv. in Decem ber last, and settled on the railroad near Union City, was killed a few days since oy a near neignoor or nis, cutting bis throat trom ear to ear.

Johnson et al. With a view to remove all doubt re specting the title to the tract ot land de vised to A. b . Johnston by his father, Wm. J. Johnston, it is deemed advisable that this Court construe the claim of the will, which gives said tract of land to the said A. F. Johnston. It is the sec ond clause, and reads as follows: "Sec ondly, I give and bequeath to my son Absalom P. Johnston the lollowing ne groes with their increase, to-wit: (Then names them.) And, also, the remaining half of the tract of land ou which I now live. The above mentioned property with its increase, at his death is to be equally divided between his lawful heirs; but in case he should die leaving no heirs, then the property with its in crease is to be divided between bis brothers and sisters, share and share alike. I also giye him my rifle gun, my dining table and sugar chest." No question arises as to the shares and other property of a personal kind. Tbe question is only as regards the tract of land Deing the oneMian on which his testator lived, tbe other hall having in tbe first item of the will, beeu deyised to his son Thomas F., in the same man ner and in the same language. This will was executed on tbe liith of November, 1s4iJ, and consequently was executed when the rule in Shelley' case was iu force ln lennessee.and talis under the operation of that rule. The rule in Shelley's case was not repealed until the aot ot 1851-2. (See Code. p. UOUS.) What was that rule? "Wbn any person takes an estate of freehold, le- gaily or equitably, under a deed, will or other writing, and in the same instru ment, there is a limitation by way ol remainder, either with or without the interposition of an intervening estate. of a right of tbe same legal or equitable character to bis heirs, ot bis body as a class ot persons to take in succession from generation to generation, the limis tation to tne neirs, entities the ances tors to the whole estate." The word qjeirs" has been always beld to be a word 01 limitation and not ot nurchase in this State, unless con trolled by other words, clearly showing a contrary intention. This devisa is void for remoteness. a gift by will to A upon death of testator's daughter without "issue," was beld void tor re moteness. (Hamner vs. Hamner, ;kl Head, 3'J8.) Tbe words here are "die having no heirs." I he following cases determine mat where words in a will ref er to the death oi a person without issue, whether the terms used be "if he die without issue," or "if he bave no issue," or "for want of or default of issue," they are construed to mean an indefinite failure of issue; and so the words "dying wit hout heirs," or "heirs oi the body," or "heirs," (4th Sneed, 64j; 1st Sneed, 5th Verger, 3o9.) If the will in this case had been exe cuted siuce the act of 1SM-2, (Code p. 2008) a different rule would govern. But construed by tbe light of the authorities and principles governing at the time this will was executed, we are brought unhesitatingly to the conclusion that the limitation over was too remote, and hence void, and that tbe tirt taker, A. r. Johnston, took an absolute estate in fee in said land; hence" the same was subject to the payment of his debts, apd hence, also, the purchaser r.f caid land would actjuiie an unquestionable title.
