They brought back some tish aud a very large story. They said 1 hey caught two hun dred and hlty trout. Major N. F. Cheairs, W. E. Greenlaw, of Spring Hill, and 'at Holmau and A s. Horslev. ol Columbia, returned irom Indim Creek on Thursday evening ol last week. Indian Creek runs through Wayne and Hardin Counties, and empties into Tennessee River. It is two days ride from Columbia, and is there fore not much visi'.i d by anglers nom Manrv. Our party had heard some marvelous stories in regard to the mini ber aud size ;f trout caught in Indian Creek, v. hicli induced I hem to make the long and wearisome trip. I hey beard that eight and ten pound trout were common in Indian creek, anu tnai sometimes they reach as high as four teen pounds. As soon as they reached the Creek, Major Cheairs, offered a prize of ten dollars lor a (en pound trout, and live dollars for everv pound oyer ten pounds. II ollered a reward lor hue chub minnows; and G. had a standing otter for cold sour buttermilk. Ihev never s iw a ten pound trout, ana in catching chubs. Major Cheairs came within a few inches ol stepping on a eottoutuoiith snake, the most poisonous of all the reptile tribe, which had its mouth open ready to receive mm witn thehospitalitv lor which it is famous. They staid one night with the genial and hospitable .lap Cvpert, another with widow llaniin. another iwtth Messrs. Lawrence and ICilph; and two with Andy White. II. ! Cvtert, the talented editor ol the IC'ryie Otlizen, tislied with the party one day, and very liticlv for an wuiateur. Thev caught l.irg strings of trout, but none that weighed ten pounds. Indian Creek is a beaut il ii I bine stream, and ssems to have leeu made for trout. It received its name Irotn the great nutnberof Indians that used to inhabit its banks Ihe celebrated chiel Weatherlv, who figured so largely in a war wi'h Gen. Jackson, iived on this creek, and ore of its tribu taries bears his name. Indian Creek has two f minus fisherman: Dick Vaulk and John Heckhain. The latter does nuthing but tish and hunt, and s.iys he is never too buisv to do either. He has a pole or rial about twenty-live leet long, and a reel on it which was given to 1 1 1 id by Col. Iltiuio It. Field. Our city tisherii.an would laugh at his rigging, but they cuuM liot catch as many hue tish. it is fainted that a par ty from Maury, with tine Meek reels a'nd silk lines fished agiiust Ileckham one dy, several years ago, and at night he had twelve 1 trge trout, the largest weighing eight pounds, and tbe Columbian, only caught one- They guve Ileckham a hne reel for his tish provided he would not tell on them. Ask Blsckheaded B;b for particulars. and chattering teeth that he brought to his shoulders a doubk -barreled fusee. Now I will swear by the pure rippling waters of Dog Creek that I will arouse the camp and perhaps capture him with the aid of my friends. I don't want that fellow to have any hand in it. He is a courageous cuss, and might get aome of the girl's praise lor heroism. Zounds and death! that would not do; I must manage to have them all heaped upon myself none to him. It would be worse than scalding water to my al ready too jealous leeiings." Every vein and every artery in his body seemed to throb with the agony of his heart. Now be glances over his double barrel, but can only hear, as the extreme darkness woaici not admit ot seeing. He blazes away, and as quick as he could raise himself from bis disordered couch, lor the over charge of powder bad sent bis bead thua against his pillow. he?bouted. "Halt! Halt! you thiet! you robber! or t il give you bail coiumoiii ' All was excitement. Halter reins snapped, men and horses scampered around, women screamed, children cried, and Prim's Springs was a place of much excitement ana confusion. Lanterns were brought into active service, and could tie seen swinging around as thick as lightning- bug-son a mid-summer evening. All pushed forward to the scene of action to find our would be hero, who had iust summoned courage enough to peep out ot the door.- "Just bv nv winiow. friends, you will find a man, a thief, who I have this minute sent tumbling dowu to the water's edge. He was ap proaching cautiously, as he thought. our unarmed and unprotected shelter. I disliked very much the necessity of shooting the man, but he might have murdered us all to accomplish a theft." Tbo search was made without any fur ther delay, all horrified to think there could any such a character iu old Hick man, aud to think ot finding a man in camp wounded, perhaps dead. It was irerdfui to t'l'uk or. "TJlood! here is blood!" was the cry from our hero's ri val. "I rind blood but no man. Come, boys, let's follow this branch; he seems to have chosen this for his way of es- ape." The party hastily gathered arpund the pool of blood, and all agreed that it must have been quite a severe wound. Off they moved down stream, with hero No. 2 in the lead, and No. 1 bringing up the rear. He is beginning to leel somewhat sick about the waist band of bis breeches, and would huut his hole, but No. 2 is taking such a lively interest, he must see the end of tbe whole affair. No. 2 halts iu front, hears something moving down the branch, he advances with cautiou. and by holding his lantern high aboe his head, he is able to see tbe object of their pursuit. A loud ring of laughter greet ed the ears of those iu the rear. No 2 after some seconds rolling aud tumb ling about over rocks and in the water. hollowed out, or halt laughed out, "It's i cow, it's a cow." While the partv 1 lughed and laughed until the tears ran down their cheeks, our heio No. 1 was making his way back to his cabin on tbe hillside, glad to get out ol reach ol the merry crowd whose fun was all at his expense. The cow was not serious ly hurt, but was sore enough about her hind legs to come up missing the next morning at the call pen. Our young hero bad business ot such importance at home on the "Big Higby" the following inorniug, that he dep irted belore tbe dawn of day." A partv ol young gen- tlemen and ladies, of whom the much admired young belle was one, were tak ing a horseback ride up the creek a lew evenings ago, aud heard the well known voice of blacksmith s wire (not the vil lage smith's,) crying, "Oh where, Oh where is my cow:" My Edok.

To the EJitort of the Herald and I am unable to account for a fact that oceuTed in my wheat crop of last year, which may be of some service to our larmers. Iu order to get clear of the smut, in my seed wheat, I usually send it to mill and have it ruu through a smutter. Last fall a year ago I sent one load to the mill, and neglected to send any more until we had sowed the lirst load. While the secoud load was gone to the mill, to keep the ploughs ijoing, I washed one bushel thoroughly in running water. This bushel was sowed across ihe middle of the held. When the wheat matured. I found that at least one tenth of tbe yield produced Irom the washed wheat was smut, aud very little indeed, in the wheat grown from seed that had been passed through th smutter. There was so much ftuut iu that xrown from the washed wheat lhat it could be seen to the verv furrow across the held. Now will some farmer explain this? It ueems to me that this is a Met worth know ing. It at least shows lhat rnnning wheat through a smutter is much better than swiiniiig it. In fact it Bems to tue that -waning must have had something to do with producing th9 smut. If not what was it. S. J. Ilontius. What a 4'ofored Han lias tunny.

By this time tbe old gentle man had become pretty VvU exhausted, and shouted for help. Falliug to get any, he summoned all of his remaining strength, and made one more effort, and succeeded in tying the sheep, aud theu sheared him. Wheu the job was com plete;!. Mt. Ciracy looked like he had been through a Hint mill. Hlood was tlowlug prof usely from a cut in the bead; his ankle was sprained: the animal kicked him in the side and broke a rib, and he w is considerably bruised other wise. We did not learn whether he .sheared the other two sheep or not. We are blessod with threshers in this , vicinity. There are eight threshers w ithin a radius ol two wiles cf this place. There were two large separator threshing one day last wee ia tie same field, on The Amis farm.. The crops not turning out as much as anticipated by some of the farm ers.

Col. Godwin, announced him self a candidate for the State Senate, and promised to discuss the issues at some future day. The numerous county can didates presented their claims, aud all passed of quietly, except4a few personali ties, which, we think, are very unbecom ing, out of time, and not agreeable lo the people. We would say to the candidates, those of t bp lock-box, before going fur ther, to get a little advice or consult with one ot our learnea proicssionais, wuo has graduated on yarls and prayer, as to the way this canvass should be conducted. If they do not hear him, and bask in the ravsofhis wisdom, they are doomed to defeat. We heard him talking upon the subject, and stopped to listen, and look upon his lovely face, which we beheld refulgent with the sunshine of intelligence blended so delicately with the beautitul shades of blushing modesty, who had tak eu the liberty ot smiling, which every American citizens lias a right to do, w;th impunity at all times and and everywhere, except in church or at his own funeral The subject was lifted up, turned inside out, shifted into retatigles, polygons and parallelopipedons, returned to its proper stiane and laid down again in a manner elegant and plain as blue mud which was verv agreeable to all concern ed.

For ourselves, while listening to him we were in a condition ol old ham Johnson when lioswell called up on hitu to notice a parot, "Are you not astonished," cried Lozy, to hear the thinir talk so well?" "I am astonish ed." responded the old cynic, "that the thing talks at all." Just now the great names of our history stands for nothing. 1 hey are pigmies compared to the pres ent veneration. 1 he oracies of the olden temples are silent. Jefferson, Jackson, Clay and Webster are mute, and can only answer our appeals by the passionless, serene, classv stare with which the dead look back upon mortal agonies from which they have passed forever.

It is lh-3 del icate Ariel singing over the tempest toss ed ocean of human life and stilling its tumultuous biilo into perfect peace. Her rendition ot music i sulliciently classic to charm the soul of Cherubma and Gluck himstll, and in addition to addressing the car of the understanding, appeals to the ear of the heart.

A Visit to Hampshire Maury, County i 1UOTHW. To the Editure of the Columbia Herald: I was kindly invited to attend on the 19th, ir.st. an examination at this place. 'id you ever travel on the pike leading trom Columbia to Hampshire, and it so do you not think it is tbe prettiest road. and leading through the finest farming country in the Mate ol lentiesscer In my opinion, it is the most lovelv portion of that most lovely basiu in the south and south-west part of the county, bound ed by Elkton Ridge and watered by the v: ..T : .. ti i.i.. .1 ! ? Denies, luej tatte uieir rise in tue spurs projecting from the northern base of the Ridge, and after winding their way some twenty-five or thirty miles, empty into Duck River. These little streams lorm a tnore extensive area of rich botton land than any two rivers four times their length in the whole world. Anv gentleman and his wife who haxe a home in tins lovelv lan J, and who would dispose of it, to find a new Eldorado or even to gather dia monds in Golconda, would be dissatisfied even iu the Garden Eden. The traveler on this road will see immediately on it and far off in the landscape, many charm ing residences with all the paraphernalia ofaffluence and comfort. Many large cotton plantations, and many wheat fields eleauiing in the suu-light, and waving as it were, their ripening harvest in a sea of gold. He will see many large mead ows with bright rippling streams, mean aering turougu their bosoms, and many large forest, with huge spreading oaks, aud tall poplars tnat jet stand as memo rials of the long, lor.? past. But I must on my way to Hampshire situated in a rolling country near the head waters of Cathey's Creek, in a beautiful valle3", aud surrounded bv rich farmiuji lands and many beautiful residences, it must be the centre of considerable trade as also the general rendezvous of the country for many miles around. There is now being erected a large and handtome church on a high hill over looking the town and not lar from this is a large and spacous Academy, in charge the present session, ot the Rev. Mr. L ssery, and his accomplished lady. They have built up a school of some thirty or forty students male and female, and at the time of my arrival, the examination had just com menced. Mr. and Mrs. usserv, are both accomplished scholars, and both, I am told, have labored diligently in the school. But I would have known this from the thorough training and rapid progress evinced by the students. After a few opening questions by the Principal, they were all handed over to the tender mercies of the examiners, w ho like most old people are always crabbed and hard upon the rising generation. After the close of the examination several teachers present, made short speeches compli mentary to both teachers and pupils, when we adjouned to make ready for the exhibition at night. A vast crowd of people assemb'ed and then commenced a series of speeches and plays by the young gentlemen and ladies of the school and for many hours, the least of fuu and pleasure was rich indeed. I must men tion one little play, that made a deep impression on my mind, and gave me great sat isf action. It was a ladies' Sew ing Society sewing for the relief of the poor, sunenng southern people, now thos3 litt'e girls scarcely Jn their teens but I wiil not 3ay It was here in these beautiful representations of life, I could trace the foot-prints of the lady principal of the school. She must have labored long and perseveringly, lo bring out so ablv, so many beautitul little plays. Mr. and Mrs. U 'sery, bid fair to build up one of the finest schools in the coun try at this place, and surelv tbe citizens will sustain them. At twelve o'clock, the examination was suspended, iiid the attendants were invited to par take of a sumptuous dinner, indeed a ban quet, highly character'stic ot the hospital ity of the people of Hampshire and vincin-ity. Long may the school and the people of Hampshire flourish. n. and hope. The scences and history oi mat worit win neyer 09 forgot, and th subject of it, now nearly all gone; I hope to meet iu my Father's houe above.

The most sublime feature of this occasion was the demeanor of the many participants, everybody it seems endeavored to make it entertaining, and the result wai suc cess. After an interval of au hour, the school vas again called to order, and theu the dialogues and brilliant essays were listened to by the large and attentive au dience. One very appropriate aud im pressive essay, "Good-bye,'' was read, and the deep and mellow tones were heard by the enraptured audience, and the cadence of that voice etill lingers.

In the fall of 1S19, I pleached my first sermon in Columbia, on my way to Catioa circuit, South of the Tennessee Kiver. In the summer of 1820. 1 attend ed a camp meeting at Peters' Camp Ground and preached four times. Many of tbe citizeus of Columbia were there and resolyed to have me stationed at Columbia. In the fall of 1820 I was sent to your town as station preacher. There wan no society then. 1 was tbe first sta tioned preacher eyer stationed there. The members living there at that time, were Thomas White, bis wife and James White, bis brother; Mrs. Oglevie, after wards Mrs. Gant, old Mrs. Strange, Mollie Coheeaud James Gullet al now dead, who lived out ot town. Wiih iheso I formed the first class-meeting eyer formed in that place.
