Ex-ilt her and she shall bring thee to honor when thou dost embrace her " The first divi sion ol the lext win to delitto what wis dom was.

Last Saturday nighi, soon after the northern train came iu, a stranger call ed aside Mr. Mays, one of the gentle- mauly proprietors of the Nelson House, and told him a long story, the short of which is that he had determined to move Irom Canada to Pulaski, Tenn.; that he bad just 6uoutrh money to bend his family on the train, and walk him- sell; that he had walked here, and hap pened to get here just as the train did; that he was tired, without money, aud would like to get a free 1 xlging. Mr. Mays replied that if he were convinced that the stranger's story was true he would rather take care of him for noth ing than not. The stranger insisted on his story being true, and finally Mr. Mays consented to take care of him, and sent him up to one of his best rooms. V hen Mr. Mays returned lo the lire, he got in conversation with Mr. Jake Orr, of Mt. Pleasont, who came in on the night train.

A I.lely ,Heenl Xeelj'i A lew days ago, B-m and Dave, two butchers, bought a yearling be-M Irom Milton Neely. Itsee.ns that they have two modes of catching beeves when in au open field; one is by the lasso, and the other is by setting two large dogs after the beef. They tried the bitter mode on the above mentioned cilf. As soon as the yearling found whit was to pay, he dashed oil at full spend arou i d the open lot above the mill, the dogs closely pres.iui: behind. $ The yearling linding that this would uot do, directed his course toward the creek, which was very much swollen by the late rains, and as the last alternative plunged headlong in'o thn turbid waters. One of the dogs immediately followed and seized the calf by the ear, and struggled hordto bring the yearling to bank; but the swift current was too strong for him, and in another second they were borne over the high dam, with a terrible splash, down to the angry boils, resem bling some lare log we have seen, com ing up only to be driven back by the roaring torrcut thit pours down upon it. The faithful dog concluded, it seems that life has enough of ups and downs without this kind of churning, aud re linquished his hold. Strange to say, when they thus pirted the calf was the first to get out. On reaching the bank, the calf seemed much more docile than before, and in this condition was easily slaughtered. We don't supposed a more thoroughly washed piece of beef ever entered our market. An old Incident. A prominent citizen and mercumt. of this place tells this joke on himself : Nearly a half century ago, when he was a young man about eighteen years of age, he was a clerk in the house now occupied by C. N. Walker. One Sun d ly morning, not feeling very devotion al, he took a novel, reclined upon his bed, and began to read. Becoming drowsy he unconsciously lell asleep. Iu a short time two robbers entered tho room, armed with heavy clubs. They came up towards the foot of the bed, aud passed towards tho head. So terri bly was be alarmed that ho became, as it were, spell-bound, and could not move for some minutes, which period seemed au ago to him, as he expected each second to have his brains knocked out. As soon as he got control of him self sufficiently, he sprang into the mid dle of the floor, and seized a chair. He soon discarded this weapon and picked up a large billet of wood. By this time the robbers had disappeared, and as he thought gone into the sales-room. Cau.iously approaching the door club in hand he stood for some miuutcs. From the front transum sutlicient light was admitted for him to see that tiie robbers were not in that room. Turn ing around his eyes fell upon the cellar door, st anding half ajar. As a lion or tiger springs upon its prey, so he sprang to the door, and quick as a flash turned the key. He had them, sale. He then weut to the door leading to the street, and waited an hour before he could see anj' one to help him secure his pris oners. It being Sundiy morniug, but few ieople were upon the streets. Fi nally, he saw two men aud called for help. He stated the whole circumstance to them. Being thoroughly armed the trio began todescend the ceiiargteps slowly and cautiously, our hero iu the the van. The cellar was dark, and full of barrels, boxes and debris. The search was continued for some time but with out success. Each moment the search ers expected the robbers would spring from their hiding places, and a deadly contest would ensue. Our hero broke the deathlike silence. Turning quicks ly back towards his assistants, he said in tremulous tones, for his throat was husky Irom excitement ,"the robbers are the two men raised clubs and awaited breathlessly but the fearful dream, which had so terribly impressed him that he could not lealize but that it was a fact. t'Ol'XTT t'OlBT.

The Young Meu's Chris tian Association ad journed till to-night at which time they will organize and elect officers. All those enrolled are earn estly requested to bo present, as well as eyery other person who feels au interest in this work. Rock prill sr. We have had au abundauce of rain during the past week. The river was very high last Friday, but not as full as it, was last spring. A groat many rafts run this tide; our esteemed friend, T, S. Lei'twich, started down the river with his large timber raft, which contained about 100,000 feet of hewn timber, last Siturday. Maybe land safe, aud meet with ready sale, for his timber, which ho doubtless will, as he has the exper ienced navigator, A. J. Huey, with him. There was an oyster supper at Joel S. Rieves'onthe night of the 22ud; they had a nice supper. The soup was splen did, and redacted great credit on those who mailo it. The young folks had quite a lively time; they chased the glowing hours with flying fleet until morning. There were some slight ol hand performances some time during the niht; W. A. Barker lost his hat, sad dle and blanket. His s bile was chang ed through mistake, but he could find no trace of his hat as there was no hat left; it is evident there was no exchange made. Willie says he doesn't like that way of swapping not getting any thing in return. Mr. Littlejohn is putting up a nice dwelling ou tho farm he purchased of J. P. Andrews. He will complete it antl move very soon. We wili have several weddings soon; some ol the young people are already attacked, ami their symptoms indicate matrimony, and not likely to recover, unless they can get a prescription from Nick Akin. Louis. Kally Hill. Rally Hill, Feb. 1, 1S75. Jo th? Editors uj the Culumhia Herald. In the last Rally Hill Items, I see the printer, through mistake, left out part of the announcement of Mr. Sam Rog ers' marriage notice. The part left out was: "On the 1-Uh inst., Mr. Samuel llogors brought home his intellectual and accomplished wife." Mr. Rogers is one ot the first citizens on Flat Creek. The frionds of Mr. John G. Horsley ex tend to you their sympathy. He pos sess"d the warmest feelings of respect and tho unbounded confidence of bis friends in this portiou of the county, and his loss is looked upon in this com intinitv as a loss to the county at large. Flat Creek is profoundly pleased at the election of Andrew Johnson-, as the one great step towards Nationalizing the Democratic party of the South. The Democratic outlook is now certainly most favorable. Flat Ckekk. MFKIKU 11 1 I.I. li li t S, The Rev. R. P. Ransom, Presiding Elder of Franklin District, has been I with us again, holding his second quar terly meeting, and preaching with bis accustomed acceptability. It is a 'la mentable and noticeable lad that the salaries of the preachers of the Method ist Church are generally falling short. It may be true of ministers of other dt nominations also. It is greatly to be regretted that whenever a pressure in money matters is felt by the people, the curtailment of expenses begins with the preacher's salar'. This may be ac counted for in part from the fact that hs a general thing no legal pressure can be brought to bear in the collection of these claims. The people of this com munity Lave ever been generous, libe ral and just, in meeting the demaudsof the gospel, aud it is devoutly to be hop ed that this year will not prove an ex ception, but that ail will come up with their "tithes and offerings" and make glad the hearts of God's servants and ot their wives and littlo ones, and thus ''lay up for themselves treasures in heaven.", Wheu the lamented John W, Cheairs was a clerk in a store in Nash ville, in his boyhood days, he was solic ited by an old steward of the Methodist Church to give something to the support of the gospel. He replied, "not a mem ber of the church." Then replied the venerable steward, "Your giving to the cause of God will be laying up treasure in heaven." Then came the noble re sponse, "I am not a Christian, but I want to take stock up there." With this came a liberal subscription, with the cash. From that da y on, God bless ed him with the ability to give, and no man ever contributed more liberally than did he, not only to the support of the gospel, but to the various benevo lent and charitable enterprises ol the age. May all ol us emulate his exam pie, and share with him the rich inheri tance of treasures in heaven. Mr. Robert W, McLemore, jr., has been absent in Arkansas for several weeks past, making his arrangements for planting in the neighborhood of Hel ena, the coming season. Mr. Jesse Gant, who has two brothers iu the same county, expects to go down aud attend to the business of ihe farm lor Mr. Mc Lemore, who will probibly remain a! his beautiful little home near this place Since writing the auove, we una it is Bolivar county, Miss. The rain of Wednesday night of last week was the most destructive of any we have had fors9veral years past. The injury to tho open land is inc ticulable Loosened up the late freezes, it was ea sily swept off, just as if it had been freshly plowed. It seems, however, to have benefited the wheat crop, pressing the earth more closely to the roots of the plant, much of which had been par tially "spewed" out of the ground by thelreezes. Capt. H. P. Pointer says this lreshet was less destructive to the fencing, water-gaps, etc-, on hid place than the flood ol 1S72, but on McCutch en, Kuou, and Rutherford creeks the damage was heavy. John W. Cheairs ct Co. have secured the services of Sammie CV.perton as clerk aud salesman in their liberally patron ized dry-goods store, while J. W- Alex ander has James Odel in his house, and Mr. Albeit Alexander has Don Molloy as his clerk. Three nicer, better or more moral young men than tho above uamed clerks, cannot be found iu any community. All our merchants seem to be doiug a thriving business, and are standing firm amid the pressure ol the times. Mr. Alouzo McKissack, our druggist, has a well ordered and handsome estab lishment, which he manages with the sangfroid of a master ot the profession. Itideed, take our dry-goods aud grocery merchants, together with our druggists, physicians, mechanics and ali; they will compare favorably with t'u3 same classes to be found in any other com munity in point of intelligence, moral worth and all that it takes to make good citizenship, while the surrouuding pop ulation is unsurpassed. Last week's Herald and M tii comes to us in mourning, on account of the death of John G. Hoksi.ky, Ksq. The sad event is mentioned in words of ten derness and affection by Mr. Figuers, Juuior Proprietor ol the paper, which meots a cordial response and touches a sympathetic chord in the hearts of hu n dreds of the friends of the deceased in this county, where by his sterling moral worth and sound practical sense he had gained Ihe esteem and goodwill of all who knew him, and at tho timg of his doath was one ot most popular mon in the county. In the vig-ir of manhood, be is suddeuly cut oil by a 1113-sterious Providence; and removod from a hold of usefulness, which was steadily ex panding, and iu which ho bid fair to be one ol the brightest orna nents. Though painful and unlookjil for was the OlOSlDK, In this dnrk iflRton of his mortal ilav ! Be reconciled a holy trust reposing lu Foirer oupreuis who gives aud takes away," Spring Hill can now boast of two ex cellent schools, one taught by Mrs. Mooney, a lady of rare ability as an ed ucator. We hope she will bo liberally patronized. Prof. Middlelon, of Giles county, opened a male school in the old Male Academy last Monday. The Pros fossor comes highly recommended, and we sincerely trust he will succeed in build a large and flourishing school. Ewell Grange, at Spring Hill, is in a flourishing condition. Mauy new mem bers are joining. There will bo a large crop of tobacco planted around Spring Hill this season. Before the war this was a fayorito crop. The high price of the woed has induced many old planters to resume planting it. Capt. Ben. Rogers recently tapped fifty sugar trees, on his beautiful little farm, and made molasses and sugar out of it. The trees furnish about a barrel of sugar water every day, which pro duces one gallon and a half of the best molasses that ever rotted a boy's tooth. LOVE'S HKAX'H I TK.HS. Love's liranch has a trrocery at last : aud the second district so long without a garrison ol the army of Temperance, is invaded by king Alcohol, whilst a lew old discharged soldiers of Temperance are busily at work prep-iritig to re pel his agressions. They are collect ing at Mt. Pennington Academy, a com manding position whence a vigorous at tack will be made, beginning at 2 o'clock Al. 3rd Saturday in Feb. Ldder James Williams will command on the side of Temperance, Mt. Pennington was visited by a show this week; receipts fifty cts. Its a dull time for the show business down here. Thos. H. Treadway recently read an able essay on Tobacco before Kettle Gran are: describing minutely the props, er method ol culture. He is an old Vir ginia tobacco raiser and we think J. M. Carsey, Son fe Co., could not make a bet ter distribution of their seeds than to back a package to Thomas H. Treads way, Isem's store Tenn., J. M. Morton is teaching neignbors hood school. He has a V9ry good school for the winter weather. Gooch. Kittrell tt Cathey are making vigorous efforts to collect their acuouuts for dry goods sold last year.

Henry Mason, col., of the bend, had a bone ol the left arm broken sometime ago. Some persons recently called to soo a I f riend near Cottage Hill, and when the 1 itter saw them he jumped into his bed and eoveied up, and entertained them from t hat position There are two dusty, rusty, crusty dilapidated and weather-beaten chim neys left iu the very heart of the village As our reporter was nearing a river side cottage, not many days ago, he im af,itied he heard sweet music. Hesoon arrived at the door, and alighting went in, where Le beheld a handsome young lady spinning, and close by her was auother young lady carding. Young lambs are seen in all directions nowadays. Poor stock of every grade greets the eye iu this section. They were doing very well until the sudden severe cold weather. . Mr. Jones, of the village, hd aj unex pected scare one dark night not long ago. He had occasion to go to his back yard, and to his great horror there was a furious attack made on his rear, caus ing turn to make haste back to his cot tuge, holding his hands behind. It was an infuriated calf. Send its Lido to Xack Wilson. Tho graceful and winsome Miss M. E Crosby, of the neighborhood of Colum bia, was in this section last week. The followiug constables, Bill Sellars of tho HKh district, E. C. Thompson of the 14th, and M. M. Harris ot the 17th are making ihe fur fly. Lawsuit after lawsuit, is all the rage. David Ciaggett, col., of the Beud, had his left -dakU crushed by a pole lalling Irom a wagou Saturday evening. Rumor sys there are four or five un known graves on the farm of the late Mrs. Jane U. Y.
