We arrived at ('ulltioka last Jr'riilay at aijout 12 o'clock, lust alter Kev. J. f Me nu linislioil hi.s address. We learn from those who heard it, that it was a very Ikie eU'ort. Alter a hearty dinuer eaten under the shade ot trees, the school and the crowd assembled again in the audience room, and Prof. John M. Webb attacked classes in Latin and tiretk in a most vigorous manner. Chancellor I'leminR and Kev. John P. McKerrin assisted in the examination. and seemed equally desirous of driving the boys to the wall. isut me young men stood it all bravely, and at the close Mr. McFerriu remarked openly to Prof. Webb fiat lie had attended manv riid examinations, but that he had ney f-r m his lile seon an examination, so thorough and (searching. Chancellor 1 lemitig said he endoi sed all that Mr. McFerrin said. Alter supper the boys delivered .speeches; etc., interspersed with excellent music by Airs. Ford music class, the inembeis of which do not beloutr to the school. Alex. Webb, of Xashvilk: Kdward Chappell. of Wayne county; Thus. McCord, ot Mar shall county; Melville Stone, of Culleo ka; Wm. Doss, of Culleoka; and Joshua Harrison, haye completed the course ol the Institute m most of their studies and some of thdin in all, and are pre pit red to enter ad vanced classes iu col leaes. Alex. Webb and Melville Stone were spcciallv thanked by the Princi pal for their loujr continued and ener trotic effort in promoting; the interests of the circulatinir library and debat ing society connected with the school. All who visit Webb's school are struck vvr h the thorough manner with which they teach. They are accomplished gentlemen, competent to teach, and possessed with a conscientious desire 1 educate the minds and hearts of the childreu submitted to their care. lie' low we give a list ol speeches delivered bv members of the Senior and Junior ciassps: Hegnlus -Walter Fowler, Montgomery, A labama Lin rami Pluniieihassctt Isaac Bryant, Maury county. lie m ap e Lock Win. .Mooney, Columbia Napoleon- I.

On their arrival they will please report to Kev. W. II Hughes, P. C either at the depot or at the Methodist Church. WixLKOKN Mooney, P. U. The sacramental meeting came off at the Cumberland Presbyterian church, (Kvergreen) near this "place, the o:h Sunday iu May. There were three preachers iu attendance the Key. Mr. McKinzie, Kov. Mr. Chapman, of this county, aud the Rev. J. X. McDonald, of Williamson. The latter was the leading spirit of the meeting. He preach ed the eleven o'clock sermon on Sun day. Mr. McDonald is slow and delib erate in hia deli very and very distinct in Lis conversation. He is possessed o; the faculty of fretting the attention ol his bearers. Without any exaggeration he may be salely classed with the fore most preachers of the O. P. Church, of Middle Tennessee. He was born and raised in this community, and is much loved and esteemed by his old neigh bora and frifjnds for the many virtues that adorn hi.s character. He received his education that prepared him tor the ministry at the Cumberland I'niversity, Wilson county, Tennessee. The Kev. James A. Orman had anoth er appointment to preach at the Chris j tian church in this place, at 4 o'clock the oth Suudy. Being prostrated on the bed of allliciion prevented him from fillirg his engagement. Try again, Mr. Orman; hope you w ill be suecesslul af ter awhile. Mr. W. A. Coggiu has recently opened a family grocery in this place. Jas. T. Weaver will now have competition in that line. Mr. Weaver, in connection with his store, has charge of the post- ottice and station. Joseph T. Kedding, our villago shoe maker, not being able to supply the de mand of his customers for home-made work, has been on to Nashville and laid in a stock to siinolv the demand. -""J. w hich he is olleiimr vorv low lor cash Thei e has been an artist in our village for some two weeks taking pictures.

Theory weathyr is ail'ecting the farm ing interest vorv seriously. There are so many places called Fcun tain Creek in this portion of the county, we have changed the heading from that to Campbell's Station. FOtTATAIX t'KKKH. ITEMS.

From what 1 saw aud heard, aud from the testimony ot otheis who heard more than your correspondent, I send you a statement ot the method ol discipline and instruction practiced in this school as developed in the exami-tion. First. The ' most perfect order is maintained during the examination. No whispering, prompting or suggests ing indulged in by the pupils. Second. The students were in iiieir places, and would remind a visitor of a well regulated, orderly lamiiy, in tne ease and self-possession with which they conducted themselves. Third The most skeptical could see that the only lessons prepared for the examination embraced all the lessons gone over during the entire session. Fourth. The very best of the pupils were frequently at a loss to give an swers to the questions propounded; and there was not a parrot recitation during the entire time running through three days. Filth. The questions were presented in a manner that no pupil could find any clue to the answer by tbe method ot asking or suggestions ot theteac-ner. Sixth. As au indication of the iins pressiou made upon visitors, at the close of the examination of the Senior classes in Latin and Greek, Rey. Jno. 1. McFerrin roso and said to the audi ence, that he had witnessed the exami uatiou ot a great many classes, but this was the most thorough of any he bad ever heard. Chancellor Fleming, who was present, also arose, and said that he agreed fully w ith Mr. McFerrin in the statement made, as his obseryaton and experience in witnessing riuinerous and and different examinations. The exercises of the three nights con sisted, the first night, in a public de bate by the young men of the Reading Club. The programme embraced an inaugural by W. H. Loss, President; two orations L.

The second night there were declamations and music by the less advanced pupils; and Friday, the third night, declamations r?y junior and Senior clasgea aud music by the entire class, embracing beginners as well as a few more advanced pupils.

I hayei recently traveled up the Tennessee river from Johnson ville, and I lound sad scenes arid wonderful devastation wticja fartus covered with the eediiiient of the river's overflow, and this sediment from the drouth, is dried up and cracked opsn, and it is ut terly impossible to plow thousands of acres oi the rich lands of the Tennessee r.ver even, il they were fenced. Thoae Que rich bottoms are dresd in mourn ing. I'amiiie that were full of hope but a few weeks ago, now sit in sadness and despair, and skof every passerby if they are raising anything in other parts to live upon. W hat a change, to leave that doleful scene ot mud and stench, ofpalied laces, and eyes that have looked themselves dry under the passing events and mishaps of a deluds ing and wooden world, and visit the genial and sunlit region ol good old Maury, where smiling faces can be seen and gleeful voices can be heard ringing upon every breeze! Yet where there is a sweet the bitter is feurely close by. Cotton, cotton, yes, cotton; and the sul lerers can't eat it and live upon it. Surely there is more cotton thia year in Maury county than I ever saw in it be fore; and does it not look strange while thousands cry out, "give us a morsal to eat," men are so blinded as not to see and know that bog and hominy must be an extra price? Plow your corn well, for it will be greenbacks this year. Stop the old saw and pet the pigs, "for they will mean business when their white sidos are turned up to" the market. King cotton surely will get sick when he hears the groans of those he is starv ing to doath.

She tells you of tne Tem pleiu which she dweils, and ui which iu a little time you are q become occupants; of the waving Units, the glad river, the blessed squgi, lhe wailing friends. She tells you of heaveu and bids you be ready to scale the inaccessible heights, nnd share those jovs forever more. O, sweeto than the breath of flowers, Or dews that summer roses weep, Deep in these sad hearts of ours, Her blessed memory we will keep. Clad in thine immortality, E'en now we hear thee joyful sing, O, grave where is thv victory, O, death when is thy sting".' Pass on sweet spirit to Increase In every bright celestial grace.

Iu youth the circlet round the brow Is all unfinished seen: The gems are new and all too new, And hid their lustrous sheen; For nothing but the hand of Time The polish can impart. And each new ray it adds thereto Is borrowed from the heart, To deck "The Crown 'of Sorrow." As yearn rll oji, it grow more bright, This crowu of ancient story; For now anon a tear drop f-"?.
