There are no cisterns In the neigh borlKHHl where the rain fell, believe, nnd we cannot therefore know whether 'he rain water would have proved poisonous lo persons or not.

Stockard'E escape from death was almost miraculous, wheu we consider the severity of his wounds. Thisatlair created a great excltemeut in the county. Considering the time, place and other circumstances, this was one of th most daring ot robberies The act would have beeu creditable to "Dick Turpin," or "Sixteen String Jack." The people about Mt.

We learn that the rain was slighter oust and south ot Columbia than it was here and farther west and north. Alto gether, however, it was a glorious rain, and has done and will continue to do an untold amount of good to the corn and cotton crops of our county. Corn, especially, was needing rain , greatly, and much or it would have been utterly worthless if the drouth had continued much longer, bome of the earlier fields of corn, on poor land, were almost past redemption, but all young corn will turn out well yet if the rains come down often enough from this time forward. V Death of an Old Citizen. We regret to announce the death of Mrs. Elizabeth H. Duncan, which oc curred at the residence of her son, W. J. Dale, Sunday evening, at 8 o'clock. She was born 17S8, and, hence, was 86 years old. She was married twice, and was the mother of nine children, four of whom survive her. She was first mar ried to Mr. Wa Dale 1805, and moved to Smith county in this State shortly thereafter. From this union our fellow low citizen W. J. Dale is the only living child. She was married again in 1811 to Mr. Duncan, by whom she had several children, three of whom are now living. She came to this place in 1843, and has resided here ever since. When quite a girl she became a member of the Pres byterian church, and was a regular at tendant until ill health prevented. Her remains were interred in Greenwood cemetery Monday evening. She had lived more then three score years and ten, and passed away as quietly as the uay. Tne Hew Steam Mill. The new steam mill, situated at the depot, is now ready lor grinding, and the President, Mr. E. Kuhn, advertises the fact this morning. Competent judges pronounce the machinery, etc., of this mill as the very best to be had. Espec ially is this said to be bo in respect to the bolting facilities, which are consid ered unsurpassed. This is a very lms portant feature in a mill; for, without good bolting facilities, fine fiou,r cannot be made. Mr. A. J. Kuhn, who- will superintend the mill, being head miller, has had large experience in some of the most famous mills in the South. The mill will grind for enston, when it is intended for tamily consumption. District Conference at Pulaski. The eighth session of the District Con ference for Columbia District, Tennessee Conference. Methodist E. Church, South, was held in Pulaski, July 9 12. Bishop II. N. McTyeire presided with his usual urbanity and ability. Rev. W. H. Wilkes and Mr. Will. S. Ezell were elected Secretaries: these scribes did their work wisely and well. The Rev. Wm. Doss preached the opening sermon. Although not one of his happiest enorts, a com petent clerical critic pronounced it an able discourse. Text Gal. vi; 5, 6: theme, The Ministry. The homes and hearts of the citizens of Pulaski, and the pews and pulpits of the Presbyterian and C. P. Churches, were open to the ministers' and members ot the Conlerence. Ihe attend ance was unusually large. Every Circuit and Startion was represented. The business coming beiore the body was transacted in due time, in good style, and with great harmony, i lie pulpit ministrations pre sented a five type of of pure gospel preaching. The love feast was a season of grace, Bweet and refreshing to the soul. Ihe bunday-bchool gathering was an occasion ot thrilling interest. xsisnop McTyeire catechised and lectured ihe children with happy effect. Rev. J. P. Mcrerrin talked tenderly and sung sweetly. The Rev. Goltnan Green en chained and charmed the little ones and others too with touching strains of gen uine eloquence. The Bishop and Con ference were debghte 1 with the singing of the School, and the ready, accurate answers to the questions asked. We noticed that the Methodists of Pulaski have lately repaired their house of worship, and "uideed remodeled it in part, so that now it is one of the most beauti ful Churcj . edifices in Tennessee. Dr R. A. Young, Sec'y, of the Board of Trust ot Vanorbilt University, made glad the hearts of the members of the Conference by hi. presence and preaching. He pleaded the cause ofthe BibHcal School, and sorareif X.H!one hundred dollar notes for its earfosrment.

One death has occurred an infant daughter of Joseph and Martha Smith, of the bend. A brilliant meteor dashed itself to wards terra firma in a fantastic manner Tuesday night, the 7th inst. Leroy Ham, the roving giant of Turkey creek', was very much excited over the bri'liant, dashing meteor of the 7th inst., and the near approach of the comet to the earth. He thinks they are fraught with some very extraordinary calamnity, probably the end of all the earth. If the end should come, the dev il wQuld have a rough time with the roving giahi. Rumor says Prim's Springs will be very attactive the latter part of this and next month. It has tine qualities, so said, for blending hearts. Our reporter attended the M. E. Church Sunday witn tae expectation of bearing Rev. Wm. Doss, but was most agreeably disappointed on hearing Rev. James Kussell, from the 16th chapter of Epheaians, referring to the 11th and 13th verses. A more pointed and practical sermon has not been preached in said church for many a day. He told the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Evil doers had better stay out of his hearing, for the plain unvarnished truth Will Gut. . , . The beautiful iair-L&ired and browns eyed Miss Willie Cummings, of Frank lin, is sojourning in this neighborhood, the guest of Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Kus sell, near Uie village. There was quite an array of beauty at the M. E. Church Sunday, Dressed in all the various styles, Assisting nature in her sweetest smile, Neat collars with tiny ties. Above which sparkled heautiful eyes. HAMPSHIRE ITEM. Trof!

We recently witnofessd the closing ex ercises of Miss A.C. Hanlin'ssebool, tj Jones' church,and were utterly surprised to find so good a school so near us.

N. end Mrs. Maltie r igusrs, of Franklin, one of the sweetest and loveliest flowers, that ever bloomed' on this eriet stricken world of ours, has rmased awav to her home in the skies, Three weeks ago we witnessed the hap piness or ner mother ana tamer, as wild pride and joy they looked upon the bright and beaatiful face ot their sweet babe their first born their only child. The little one, unable to utter in words the pleasure which their presence ana kida caresses afforded, would raise her eves and offer to their loving hearts a smile ot fond recognition. Little did they think that so soon they would be called on to give up this" jewel of their hearts, which God had kindly loaned to them for the brief period of a few months. While the parents were on a visit to relatives in Columbia, little Su sie was taken suddenly sick. The best medical skill and the kindest attention proved unavailing, and after a week of sutiering, death came ana released ner pure spirit. Now, sweet cherub babe, thy sufterings are all o'er. Thy tongue, no longer trammeled by the infirmities of earth, is uttering sounds as sweet as the whisperings of an angel. In the still hours of night thy spirit may be permitted to breathe words of tender-, ness and love into the sad and sorrow ful hearts of those who so bitterly mourn tby departure. "Bright, beautiful being, we miss you on earth, We list for the sound of your ianoceut mirth; The angels have led in you in silence away For us there are shadows lor you there is day." The Rev. Mr. Chapman, of the Cum berland Presbyterian Church, preached in our town on last Sabbath, a sermon in the interest of the Bible cause, at the close of which a collection was taken up. Our people contributed with their usual liberality, and a handsome sum was re alized. The Rev. J. W. Hunter, of Nashville, preached at night a very ex cellent sermon. The venerable Dr. A. L. P. Green, we regret to learn, is rapidly giving way under the influence of disease. Dr. Maddin attributes his decline to the in fluence of the waters ol the Hot Springs ot Arkansas, repelling the disease of the skin trom the surlace and throwing it npon the internal viscera. The wheat crop of Mr. Steve Porter yielded an average of eighteen bushels per acre. A field of his ot eighty acres on the Ewell farm, made fifteen hun dred bushels. The crop of Mr. J. F.

To the minds of some it is a sign of " I he Great Ruler's" judgment of condemnation. Some read in the comet the fall of na tions, others war, famine and plague. We now have three mails per week to and from Columbia, and two to and from Waynesboro; and conveyance iu two horse coaches, with good, safe, cautious and sober drivers. Everybody knows Mr. W. C.

Stocka'rd. on the niihtof the 20th of June. These prisoners were guarded by reliable men. On Monday last, our town was filled with all sorts of people, white and colored, men, boys, women and children, over flowing with excitement to witness the tr al of the State vs. Elisha and Luther Grimes, charged with attempted murder and robbery. The case was conducted by L. D. Myers for the prosecution, and Lee Bullock for the defense. A number of witnesses on both sides were examined. Mr. Myers opened the argument in a brief reference directly to the law. Mr. Bul lock made an abta effort, characteristic of his brilliant mind. Mr. Myers dosed the argument in his happy and winning way. The Court, after a tew minutes of consul tation, committed the defendants to jail, to be disposed of by the Criminal Court. SOWEU'S (LOWER) MIf.ES ITEMS. It has always been the case, and always will be, that at the end of a long dry spell, the rain will come. This was verified on Friday the 10th inst., when this neigh borhood had a most refreshing rain, which has revived all the growing crops. Corn is beginning to grow and look green, and the rain has brought up millet and Hun garian grasss. The cotton is white with blooms, but it it is rather small for the season. We feel thankful for the bounti ful wheat crop that has been harvested- On the 9th of this month, at the resi dence of his daughter at Rock Spring, Mr. Anson Fisher departed this life, aged about sevent-five years. He lived a Christian life, and was an upright man in all his dealings. He was buried in the Rock Spring Cemetery. On the 10th, the widow Huey, mwther of A. J. Huey, and step-mother of J. H. Haey, died: Mrs. Huey was a model woman, and well be liked by all of her neighbors. The health of this neighborhood was very good until the last few days. The Doctor has had several calls. We are truly sorry that our friend, Wm. Brazier, who has been suffering so long with a cancer in his left ear, Is get ting worse. He has given up all nope of recovery. AH onr sympathies are arous ed when we see Mr. Brazier suffering so much. 4 , r Mr. 'Lige Neely is doing a heap of grinding these dry times. He gets out of sorts ouce in a while so many after him about those sacks. . If iee was not one of the best natured fellows in the world he would have to whip some of the boys. Jeff Rieves is an assistant at the mill. We dp net know what part of the busi ness he does, but think he sits in the mill door and tells 'Lige when anybody comes. Jeff says when men were honest and made good whiskey, he took pleasure in drinking tis little dram, but now a quart of the wretched stuff is as much as he or any other sober man can drink and do well.

Mr. Sidener, of Kentucky, preached at the Christian Church in this place on the second Suuday in this month, bv the invitation of Mr. Draser, the regular officiating minister. The Rev. James Bradshaw, of Covington, Ga.. preached at Evergreen Church in the eveuinc of the second Sunday. Mr, Bradshaw was born and raised in this community. He is a brother-in-law of Gov. John C. Brown, having married his sister. Evergreen Church in the last twentv-five vears, has turned on t four preachers Rev. James Bradshaw, Rav. James N. McDonald, now living in Williamson county, Rev. John Howard, now living in Maury county, ana tev. James F. Gracy, now living in Missouri. Vll of these men were born and raised iu a hall a mile of the church, which speaks well for the community in which Evergreen is situated. If all the churches in the land had seDt out as many preachers as this church in the same length ot time, and all were doing as gooa service as these four men are, what an army of soldiers would be en listed in the Savior's cause? We have had copious showers of rain the past week, which have been a great advantage to the growing crops. The farmers look more cheerlul. A gentleman stayed all night recently iu our village who lives about fifteen or twenty miles east of Buford's Station. He says the roaring noise made by the locomotives on the railroad, can be dis tinctly heard that distance. He further stated that there were a certain class of individuals living in that region not be ing able to account for the noise, had become very much alarmed, and bad prophesied that the world would come to an end some time next fall. They must be ot the same class of persons who reside around uald Mountain. JN C. It may be that their ancestors emi grated trom somewhere thereabouts, as a good many of the firs', settlers of Ten nessee came trom the old North State, If this class of individuals have never seen a railroad with a train gliding alone: at the rate ot thirty mills per noui if they will visit the road they must not come at night. li they ao, they will think that his Satanic Maies ty with all his host, are on a general tour through the earth, seeding whom' soever they may devour. They will see a greater wonder than DryDones saw when he visited Bald Mountain, and there saw that very uncouth individual with his two boys keeping up a smoke on the top of the mountain, and he with four mules bitched to an old dilapidated wagon with a few loose plank and stones in it, driving at a furious rate round the top of the mountain, oyer a yerv rough road made for the oocasion. All done for tbe purpose of alarming the inhabi tants iu the vicinitv, and make them believe that the mountain was just on the eve of an eruption, and to furnish sensational articles for a certain class of newspapers. Attic Salt Ko. 3. To the Editor of the Herald and Mail- Voder the significant, but evidently appropriate, signature of "Idler," ap pears an article in your last issue, in de tense of the "fledgeling poet," whose Pegasus was distanced in the first beat. and has long since retired. The whole articlo, including his nom-de-guerre, is suggestive of the fact, that, "Satan finds Rome mischief still For idle hands to do." What his object was is more than any sensible man can divine. He wholly ignores the original question in contro versy, and makes a few trite and con temptable quotations, which he, no doubt, imagined would take all the sa vor out ot "Attic Salt." We do not know who this "Idler" is, nor d. we care to know; but we are of opinion that after reading his article, any phrenologist ot ordinary attainments, could, with great accuracy, chalk out the shape of his head, the deformity of which would on ly be partially cone sale! by the length of his auricular appendages. It may be, however, that his professed inactivity has inde his liver torpid, or that his spleeri may be attributable to an ex cessive accumulation of bile. Fearing that something ot this sort may be the real cause of his meutal disorder, we will forbear to apply a strong solution ot our compound (at present) lest hy drophobia might ensue, as dog days are near at hand. We will state, however, for his benefit, that our compound has no hydrophobic tendency, except on chronic cases, where the mind has long been in sympathy with some physical disorder. Fearing that such may be the nature of the case in question, we earn estly commend him to his family physi cian, who, after a thorough diagnosis of his disease, will perhaps prescribe Dr. Fahne8tock.'s celebrated remedy, ( mark ed B. A.) aud will direct that it be fol lowed ip in the usual manner. This timely precaution might enable him to eke out e few more idle hours ot misera ble existence. Otherwise, his fate may s ion be told in the following pathetic and paternal sentiment: Here Ilea, alas! our darling; little Jerry, The son of Isaac and Serena Howells; Nine days he wrestled with the dysentery, And then he perished in his little bowels.

JV) ihz Etiitora of the Cvlumhia Serald: What Is freedom in any government without the riRhts and privileges of citizen ship? It is a misuonier; nominal freadom witiiout tue rights of a citizen Is the worst sort of slavery. I would prefer a master that would, from self interest, protect me. It is almost unanimously agreed that he ought not to be enslaved. Then what will yqh do with him? lie is either a citizen or not a citizen; then please name him? If he in a citizen, then give him such facilities as would tend to make him a good one. If he is not a citizen, then assign him his proper place. By many there is almost a sweeping accusation of dishonesty, degradation, Ac. 1 would ask of such, what strong induce ments are held out that are in their nature calculated to bring about a speedy reform?

There is unmistakable evidence of great wrong somewhere. There is too great a disparity between the laborers of rural districts, the real producers, the bone and sinew of the country, and the mere consumers of cities. lk not understand me as including all who live in cities.tor there are manv honor able exceptions. There are men employed in legitimate business who are an honor to themselves and a blessing to the land and whose avocation is indispensable to our gen eral prosperity, but we must remember that all who are engaged in legitimate busi ness do not pursue it In an honorable way, by abuse of privileges, blessings are fre quently oonverted into a curse. The strong tendency tn city lire is to pride, extrav agance, Idleness and its concomitant vice; extravagance is the natural offshoot ot priae.as vice 18 that of Idleness. Proud man, a poor pitiful worm, wastlne thn hard earnings of these, that are by far your supe- i mis m cveij buiux mm u lanesu) consti tute a noble soul. Do not lmaelnn ti your selves, because you can twirl gold headed canes, riae in nne carriages, occudv closed Qushloned pews furnished with gilt Bibles and hymn nooks, and make handsome ap propriations to buna and embellish nne churches, that all of this will give you a fee simple title to a seat in paradise; remember the whlted sepulchre; you may deceive yourselves and your fellow man, but Ood you can never aeceive. Uemember that humanity is the essence of Christianity. and we can only judge the tree by Us fruit, wane you are ao lavisn in your appropri ations tending to foster pride. Is It not nos- sible that you have entirely overlooked objects of true benevolence? Is It not prob able that you are moving In an imaginary sphere that entirely overlooks the mudsills of the republic, upon which the whole superstructure is reared? The wise master builder will proportion the sunerstmrrtiire to his foundation, but if by oversight or mistake ot any sort he discovers that the enormous weight ol the superstructure Is crushing his foundation, he stops Immedi ately and strenghtens his foundation by getting additional timbers or by lopping off the most useless portion of the su per structure and converting it into sills. Now this republic of ours is a magnificent structure, and if properly watched and guarded, may stand forages as the wonder oi the civilized world, but if we unwisely get the machinery disproportionately for the foundation, there is danger of dilapida tion and ultimate destruction of th mIiKiw. and If I mistake not, there is a manliest tendency that way now. Now this whole structure Is sustained by human muscle and human energy and enterprise, and Just to the extent you over-tax one or all of them, just so far you endanger the edifice. Are any of these being overtaxed in this portion of our proud edi flee? II not then I will acknowledge that I am a crazv fanatic or a fool. I speak from what I feel and see: it is not a matter of doubtful history with me. I know full well that there are human beings, aud not a few of them that labor hard, but do not enjoy enough of the fruits of their labor to make them comfortable or healthy, and for the proof of this statement. 1 would refer you to some of the physicians of the country. Now if these are facts, is It not evidence of wrong somewhere? But the great difficulty is in discovering the guilty parties; all protest innocenoe until they are proved guilty. The tenant complains just ly of unreasonably heavy ren tsthe land lord complains of heavy liabilities in the shape of taxes, So. By reference to the re cords It may be seen that in many instan ces, his complaint is not without founda tion. You may go through with the inves tigation of every grade ot society, every business or profession, and you will find nearly all shielded by a self innocent batte ry, but take the evidence of disinterested parties, and we find their battery oulte vulnerable. Is It possible that there is not sufficient number of faborers with an equitable distribution of the fruits of labor to sustain numan nie in a irugai manner? Before we settle down into a self righteous complacency let each of us examine our selves impartially, as before the light of eternity, tiememoer mat numanity ae mands conformity to stricter rules of fru gality. In the view of tne fact that the on- pressed of every race and color will meet us n tne aay oi nnai recK.oning ana neip us make up our accounts, would it nqt he wiser In us to leave on a little of the onia mental trappings ot the body, in time, rath' er than run the risk; of nakedness of the soul in eternity? Ketorra and retrench ment should be tbe watch-words, beginning in tne rustic novel, permeating every grade of society to the Presidential mansion. There Is a class of people whose course, to niT mind, is utterly iuexcusable. Such as use tobacco as a luxury or whisky as a bev erage, should remember that suffering hu manity everywnere pieaus ior a reierm. To my menus oi tne nepubneau party of Maury county, as we are in tne minority. and a strict party vote is demanded by the leaders oi the opposite party, we can not hope to elect a Republican to an office of any sort, no matter how meritorious he might be. Hut as citizens of a republic, It Is onr duty to be watchful and give our support to me oest ana most uuerai epiriusoi me op nosite nartv. I would not dictate to any one how he should vote, but will give a sort of rule by which 1 am governed. Be tween Republicans and Democrats, 'when party lines are drawn as definitely as they are in this county now, with equal claims of merit, I shall vote for a republican, a total disqualification on either side would make me ucciue in lavor or merit, rteiweeu two democrats, will sqppqrt the most liberal, everything else being equal. Between white and colored, will be governed by the same rules of other men or parties suffer passion, and prejudice to usurp reason a throne. If one man sins, there is no Justi fication in my sinning in retaliation; let him persue his beaten path by himself. Such of us as are governed by such rules must decide for ourselves, who copafc.i nearest the rule, tut la arriving at collu sion, it will be well for us to look to a few facts. It Is universally admitted that the salary or fees of nearly every office in the gift of the people are disproportionately large for the amount of labpr performed; as a rule t4ey maybe potjsldered rather exor bitant. Would it not therefore be unwise in us tb continue !n office such men as have made fortunes, or had an opportunity of doing so by the fees of office? If the people are taxed to make a few men rich, then justice demands that their terms of office be as short as practicable, so that our dona tions be as equally distributed as possible; as christian philantropists, let us endeavor to keep them from where Dives went, py removing, the incentive to follow him.' The longer men are kept in, lucrative office, the stronger the temptation ' tq corruption. There is an old, and as I think, a very true adage, "that an idle man's Drain is the devil's workshop." Pay a man a large sala ry for half work and you give him ample time to do the devil's work, end if his soul is not sweetened with grace, nine times out of ten he Is taken captive by the devil at his will. There Is another old but very significant adage, "like priest, like people." We should watch vitn a jealous Ci'eT'the conditfcl of our poliBgal priests,' who seem to think they are commissioned to do all the thinking and voting for this people. Have you forgotten who it was that pre sumed to think for n - igxft Have you forgotten the almost unprecedented trou bles, privationsand distress in this country? Are you again going to suffer yourselves to be led like nheep to the slaugbter-:ea by the same Democratic priests? ' I do hope that the scourge was too severe to be so easily forgotten. As a rule, I think It Is much safer for us to select our ofHoers from the rural districts, men whose interests are more directly identified with ours than to let professional politicians make selections for us. One reason is, they have too mnch idle time to do the devil's work, and are firetty well posted and know who will ikely carry out their plans, and in their wily strategy if It were possible would de ceive the very elect. In order to deceive they will frequently turn ' their' influence for obscure good men in the rural districts for Important positions, making a show of impartiality, to aivert uie unsuspecting from their real design, which is to have every office of Importance filled by men whose interest is Identified with theirs. What hope have we of retrenchment or reform as long as we select euch men, for each of them has a brother, son, father or chum, trained like themselves, never bav- ing earned a dollar by then- labpr as pro- ducer in tbeit lives, as tuuh' totally unfit to disburse the fruits of an honest laborer, Now lt to me lt doeg not take a to foretell what such a course will lead to. The more such men you get in office, the more salaried offices and clerkships will be needed, and the number will be corres pondingly multiplied, but the more hard fisted rustics, who have been accustomed to put in twelve hours per day, turning clods for one dollar or less per day, fewer offices and smaller salaries will suffice, llave such men to represent you in every depart ment of State, and my prediction is that very soon a reduction of legal interest would follow, and the capital of the country that is now being used hi oppress labor and cripple enterprise would then be used In developing the resources of the State, and labor would enjoy mpre of its fruits.

With icy 11 n gers it plucked another beautiful flower from our midst last Friday nit; 111, In the person of .Susie Ciieaius, infant daughter ot rnomas iorneet and liattie f. Figuers, aged about seven months. They were out ou a visn to tneir relatives, wuen ttieir lit tie cherub suddenly sickened and died. It was buried in Kose Hill Cuetery Sunday morning. How bright and sweet was Its dear young iace, With its angel looks and its infant grace. Thestrange little violet of human birth, was too fragile for the storms aud shadows of this sin-stricken world, and God trans planted it to a more congenial clime to regions where sin can sow no seed. Her little life was short as an infant s dream, and ended as the rosy tinted wreath of mist passes away at close of day. "Think not of the loved one lying In the cold grave all alone, But the white robed cherub joining With the host around God s throne, Chanting songs of adoration To the great eternal One. Saved by Him who said In mercy 'Let thy little children come To the Father's mansion holy, Thereto rind a heavenly home,' There shall you regain your lost one Where no death Qr partings come.''
