The Bishop handled his aubject with his usual ability. He said many peo ple became disheartened when they were toitd hey must be like Christ; but when this phraseology was used, it meant that we should be like the mam Christ, and should not belike the Uod Christ.

Mr. John H. Kendrick, of Waynesboro, Was up here lant Tuesday. Reuben Folk is th name - of a well known colored man of this place. He was a body-servant ol the late Col. W. H. Polk, and in the days of his master, was quite an aristocrat among people of his color. Last summer he got sick, and went down to death's very door, and looked In. He was sick a long time, and got out of money, so that he did not have enough to buy medi Ones. He got some one to take up a collec tion in the colored Methodist Church, morning aud night, and the result was the enormous sum of fen cents. He became thor oughly disgusted at the want of charity among his colored brethren, and when his physician came in he remarked to him in mournful tones, "I will rely no more upon this heartless world; I have turned my face and am looking across the river." The phys ician was much touched by Reuben's re marks, and resolved to see if he could not enlist the sympathies of the white people, and get them to contribute to his necessi ties. He called on Mrs. O., of the Hamp shire pike, and told her Reuben's story; how his own people had left him to die in want and distress; and how the old darkey had turned his back on the world, and was looking "across the river" of death. The doctor thought he had struck a tender chord in Mrs. (i's heart, and be whs much surprised when she said, "Doctor, did old Reuben tell you whether be saw, when he was Ioooking across the river, those yellow hammers he sold me for partridges?"

A man of high social position, ol spotless integrity, and decided leual acumen, he has commanded the re spect of his political adversaries and re taiticd the confidence of his friends Enter ing upon the discharge of his duties at a time when lawlessness was rife all over the State, his task of bringing offenders to jus tice appeared not only fruitless but en Jlers. Vet 'y firmness, determination, and great perseverance, he has brought offender after offender to justice, until now there is not a district in the entire South as free lrom in fraction of the I'nited Slates laws as the oil e over which he has jurisdiction.

While Mr. Williamsand his brother merchants are required to pay a heavy li cense to farry on their business, these out side paities, representing aljnost every branch of trade, who come iu and under sell them, are charged only per month as peddlers Being at IIO expense for rent, li cense and otiier taxes, the Louisville and Viuciimnti men simply defy competition. And the great trouble Is, they deal not with Columbia merchants, but directly with their customers It is not asked, Mr. Wil liams says, lo drive away this class of com petition by discriminating against the drummers but to have the law amended so as to give the merchant of Columbia and other towns simply a fair show. The mat ter will be brought to the attention of the Legislature. Cuiuii aii'i Aiiia-tiaa, The Library.

On list Friday night there wns a L.r.iud masoue ball at tho resi dence ol Mr. Stephen Jordan, which was largely attended by many a lad aud lass, n no Moubs win rorget many occur rences, ere they lose remembrance of this gay evening, where all seemed bap- pv. I cannot, l am sorry to sav. give all the names ol the young ladies and the characters they so well lepresented. Columbia sent five of her fair daughters out: Misses P., Miss J , Miss W. and Miss II. Miss II. represented night, and bore tbe character to porfection, but when the mask fell tbe effect was the reverse of night: her smiles shone as bright as a ntwuioon. Misy. had a host of admir ers, who, poor fellows, had to stand otf with all thoir profound admiration, at a distance, on account of the iraliaut Mr. vT. J. Mi'E., who could not loso oue sweet lilt, e won!, but was destined, it seemed, to be her knight the whole evei.jr.g: and indeed, she seemed per- b-ctl v h.ippy i:i having the 'l!iir Injun" by her side. Miss W. was beautifully Irersrd in pure white, and looked as though she belonged to auotberand bet ter sphere. She had a very elegant veil of,unuual length; while pissing from the parlor to the dining room, and While in t ho latter room, a live coal lrom the irlor fire rolled down and came in con- tMetw-ith the line labric, and began blaz ing, which caused no litt lo alarm, for the young lady u s in iin.iiiueiit danger. Mr. C. i. V ., of Columbia, with a light ning bound, closed tbe door, which at once checKed the rapid course ot the tlames, which were extinguished with a loss of only a lew yards of the hinder- most trail. No insurance. The Misses P. looked charming, and from the at trillion tuey received there was not a vnntig man but knew loo well ot their enchanting presence, and a deep sigh was the parting airu, and in some cas es tears lound their way down manly laces. Again wo sty, many were the pretty feminine faces ;afier the masks fell! lo be seen on last Friday eve. A word iur the gentlemen now. Oue would have thought, from the number of redskins or Indians in lull dross, that they were in tbe 'Lava Beds," amoilg tho Modocs. A very amusing performance gone through with by Mr. J. C.

Jt'tt. at the Presbyterian Church in this place, on last Sabbath, to a large and apprecia tive audience. His sermon was origi-. rial, unique and pungent, F.nd consider ed somewhat radical ou the liquor ques tion, by some of those who board him He left the old beaten track of vitupera tion sad abuse of the sellers of ardent spirits, and charged home upon the con sumer, the supporter of theso establishs meuts, the principal guilt of the traffic, on the ground that if there were no buy ers there would be no selleis. He is either misunderstood or misrepresented by the lovers of whisky, in claiming that he held there was no wrong or evil in the moderate use of it as n beverage. He did say that it might be used profita bly as a medicine in some cases, ami that a young man might occaMona'iy take a glass of ale or something of that sort, without being greatly blamed, but should never go into a saloonor it. La ziness received at his bauds an unmer ciful castigation. In his travels he rare ly ever saw a white man at work, but they were lounging upon the streets or banging around drinking salorns- or gathered about the stores, idling avt-ay their time, to the neglect of their farms and business, while women were but too often gadding about from house to bouse, and from one place of amuse, ment to another, instead of being at home, attending to their household du ties and domestic affairs; statimr that there was more hope for a drunkard or liar than there was for a lazy man or woman. WThile tho saloon keepers may tako some comfort, and perhaps some encouragement, from the somewhat sin gular views of this able and learned di vine, yet if by his peculiar reasoning on this subject he succeeds in cutting off the streams which leed their establish ments, they will haye but little roason to rejoice. He preached a remarkable B -rmon here a year or two ago on the fascinating amusement ot daucing, in tbo commencement of which the lovers of the danco were comforted with the belief that he was a champion of their c ;use, but ere he closed, he let loose up on it the batteries of sarcasm and invec tive with such effect, thut there has nev er been a public dance iu this place since. If by his somewhat singular course of argument in regard to the liquor traffic bo should be as successful in extirpa ting this evil, he will have done a great and good work. 'en. Lucius J. Polk, than whom a more high-toned, honorabie and chiv alrous gentleman never lived, was for several years a citizen of this neighbor hood. He settled within half a milo oi where Captain Thos. 'iib-on now lives. His old residence is still standing, where iu the best style of bachelor lile, bo dis pensed a generous and elegant bespilal ity to bis numerous friends. He w:-.s looked upon as the rich man ol the coun try, but wfis social, all'ablo and kind. Always a man of proud and noble bear ing, he was indeed one of nature's no blemen, but to tbe humblest citizen he always accessible, and ever bad a CAHFBEU STATIOa ITFMS. Mr. A B. Sowell has bought a house and lot from A. B. Wilkes, paying him one hundred ana seventy-nve collars in cash. This is a nice residence tot a fonall family. Mr. Sowell is a young bachelor, and some think he contem plates committing matrimony. This is very thoughtful on his part, to get the cage before he catches the bird. James Wilson, a young man from Giles county, went to Mr. Coggin's blacksmith shop on the 11th inst., to have his horse shod. The horse being iara to shoe, was put in the "stocks." When the shoeing was atiout done, the horse undertook to get out, and in bis etrorts to do so he hurt himself in the small of the back so badly that he has "ot been able to walk any since, or even to get up. The probability is that he will die. Tbe Rev. Mr. Ussery will commence t priyate school at Pleasant Grove Acad emy the first Monday in March. Mr. Ussery has the character of being a fine teacher. J. II. F. Henderson will com mence a private school at Evergreen the first Monday in March. Mr. Hender son has been a teacher for twenty years or more, and is very well liked as a t5f cber. Tho farmers in this community are sowing more clover-seed this season than has been sown in a number of years before. During the dry weather last summer, the cloyer was pretty well killed ouf, aud cloyer pasture this com ing spring and summer will be an ob ject. W. G. Martin, one of our best farm ers, is having a string of stone fence built at tbe foot of the hill in front ot his residence. One night last week four young men were arrested at Lynnville for robbery. Tbey bad broken into the grocery ot Mr. Keilum and taken some $280. Two of these young men are named Reagan, one ot whom has a wile and two chil dren: tbe other is a single man. The father of these young men is a minister in tbe Primitive Baptist church, (the non-resurrection side.) He also carries 'n blacksmith shop, his sons working in tho shop with him. The names of Mo other two are Clark and Garrett, the latter a son of John Garrett, who for merly kept a saloon in Lynnville. All four were taken to Pulaski and put in jail Dick Friersou and Xewton Cannon paid our village a few dags ago, drum ming for their respective beuses in Nashville. Dick was here in December; and ou that occasion went with bis Irier.d Sowell to his boarding house to get breakfast. This boarding bouse has a revolving dining table: Dick had nev er seen one: will) a good deal of embar rassment be made out to get through with Ids breakfast. He afterwards told his I. -iond that every time the table wai turned bethought the thing was going to hit him in tbe face. The Kads seotn to be making arrange ments or trying to make them, to carry the Southern States in the next PresN dential election. Tbey had better act a little more prudently, or they will meet with tbe same luck that the dog did that is spoken of in one -IC-sop's Fables: lie was crossing a stream ou a log with a bono in his mouth; he saw bis shadow and concluded he would have both bones: accordingly he dropped his bone, jumped at the other dg (his own shad ow) and lost all.

When such men as Capt. Gibson, Major Chpairs, V. II. Brown, A. W. Pi tter 'and 15. A.

There never was a society or club or gittizHl in Columbia that aid not die in its, jufancy. tnir young men are noted lor two things want ot energy and an auiipathy lor work. A deb it ing socio! y will spring up, flourish for awhne, and die. We have uow in rxistepce a Mili tary Company, a Dramatic tSociety and a i Ugly Club. This club was organized on Sunday, and lor this reason should prosper. Its object is for moral improve incut and amusement. Iti o numbers some forty members, but soma are los ing interest in it. Why H this? Jt is fcimply beoauuo FainetUing new lias ome into existence a propensity to giye up old lriends for new ones, "This club must not, shall not die.

With this in mind, and a little display ot energy, the Fates will propitiously s.'ililo upon us, and tdCCfsa Will attend us always. Dpy. c -mpany at Columbia to coerce tbe la bor. This is simply rediculous and false; yet some malicious person or per sons bavo so poisoned the minds of the c ilored population, that this is given as a reason for so mauy of their number go ing to Kansas. Our Grange has bad its regular sassions since December, 1873, and the subject of hired labor has never yet been discmsed, and we have no con nection whatever with any military c impany. If the colored people now le .vin are runuing from the Grange movement in Tennessee, they make an egregooi-s mistake, ns they will find mauy uure Grangers in Kansas than here, according to population. 2d. It is charged that we have put down the price of cottou. This is too absurd to merit discussion. We are generally growers ot the weed, and would not commit the folly of putting down our own production. If we had been charged with trying to raise tbe price of the lint, we could not so easily deny. We do propose as an organiza tion to urg9 our people, white and col ored, to economy aud industry; to in duce the erection of manufactories of all kinds throughout tbe South as well as North, aud to induce our planters to raise less cotton and more provision, thereby becoming inure independent, and look less to foreign markets for our family supplies. We propose as far as possible to concentrate and procure through freights, and avoid local dis crimination; not that we blame a rail road for charging more ou local than through freights but we tbiuk it our prerogative ii we ofan, to avail ourselves of the lowest rates which we may do by concentration. We think we should manufacture ourowu wheat into flour; our own timber and iron into imple ments of husbandry; our own cotton in to warp and woof, and thereby save mil lions of dollars of useless freight. We wish to encourage all branches of me chanism, aud as far as we can to dispense with useless cqtisuioera, and induce them to become producers, We would like to Induce capitalists and skilled mechanics to settle among us Irom North or South or lrom Europe, and invest in in anufacturing. Most heartily do wo commend the energy ol our mill men who seem Vie,l6i".rdnod to c mo to lirst-ciass milling standard, snd our plow manufacturers, who seem b nt u:i vieing with eastern establish ments. Wo wish, as wo can, 10 elevate the standard and dignity of labor, either agricultural or mech tulual, believing it no disgrace in either m ile or female to do a reasonable share of tho farm, tbe household and shop and mill work. We think it as much a couiaDU of the Almighty U vork ix days as to rest or keep holy the seventh. We are not w in ing upon tbo "Middlemen" or com mission merchant for charging hi rea sonable lessor commissions, but if we can by conisoutnttion dispense with ball their number, and induce Ihem to be como producers, are we blamable? If we cau through our own agents buy a sewing machine, a reaper, or Wioh, at a saving ot from 30 to 00 per cent., are we culpable? Or if we caq go manage as to have these thina niauHfkfurea at our doors instead bf'sehding north or east for them, have we wronged any one? If we should by poncentatiou make void th? Pkcu Ration ot many ol our local and traveling agents, we do not wirb thereby to throw them out ol employment: most cordially do we in vito them to our heaven-bestowed occu puion l hit of Bgricnl'qre. 'Io union (here is strength. " Take tbe Surplus wheat of tho North western bl- nished Kasterrj cCBSunrs, sy 40,000,000 bushels: to ship to those markets from bioago costs f 14,000,000. Suppose they had combined and ereotsi mills and converted that wheat into flour, say K.OoO.Ouo barrels, they could bave ship ped to the same markets for JfO.OOO.OOO. thus saving on 1 1 eights alone ?.5, 000,000, enough to have erected a host of mills, The same rule will apply equally t.q cot ton, only in larger proportions. The e impressing oT our bales to shipping siz, which could be done at home, costs eah cotton crop more than fl,000,000, and tho freight of the line east, 'and cloth buck, costs many millions. How soon would this great saving, if continued, build us cotton mills all over our sunny South. For the want of uni ted action, these golden standards of true liberty and independence pass year ly by. w -Knout an effort to. turn tbeiu to our advanfayo. John H. Hamilton, Daniel .1. Estks, S. W.
