Weal' uuciuiue cruncning oi watermelons on tne puDllc square.and throwing ol rinds mioine gutters. These rinda He there and decay, poison the atmosphere and sow the seeds of disease and death. Saturday and Monday last we noticed around the court house a mass of mud and watermelon rinds, which sends ua an odor not near so pleasant to the olfactories of passe ruby as would a boquet ot choice roses. The stench arising from such heaps produces typhoid, typhns, intermittent, remittent, Diiioua and oth er fevers. Every person throwing watermelon cantaloupe or muskmelon rinds Into the street, and especially the sidewalk around the court-house, should be fined. That pe riod of the year when sickness Is appre- nenuea, is approacning, ana it oennove oar City Marshal to see that our streets are kept clear from putrefying aubstauces. 1 he ataranai should threaten every one with ar rest who persists in heaping rinds on -the streets to rot and generate .1 isease. For eight years the Herald haa advoca ted the erection of a reservoir on the Knob. Public attention was thus directed to the subject, and the corporate authorities Dougni tne khod. several years ago steps were taken to erect water works on the knot), and plana were maturing as rapidly as possible under thecircumstances. when a new Board was elected, and hard times pre- icuicu iuiiuvi nirua i ii tne matter it was lmpossioie to gei tnrougn such an en lerprisc wuen leaning easiness men were laboring for very existence. The Mayor u iuwi us bii excellent oiucer as ne al ways does and the Board has done well, but times promise to be good now, and our town snouia ne improved. We advocate measurea and not men we propose to ad vocate no particular man's election but we can at least, without being at all Incon sistent with this determination, commend this bold way of taking the bull by the horns. Thecandidate nominated fnr Mnv. or Tuesday night, Capt. John P. Brown, is itne oi i ne largest tax-payers in town, and win tage noaaiarv. Elsewhere we nnblish tha nroceedimrs oi me meeting neiu in tne tjouri-nouse last Tuesday night. The resolutions passed are good, and the board presented contains en ergetic, pnoiic-spi rued young business men. There may be some doubt as to the propri ety of undertaking to do more than one thing at a lime, but all the public improve ments proposed are of grave importance. and must be accomplished at no far-off aay, lr the town ever grows or prospers What is a town without pavements? What is a city without water? What is a city without gas? You might as well try lo have a city In these modern dnvs without railroad or water transportation. Our pave ments are a burning shame to us : many of our most ireuuentea tnorouguiares are nothing more than big flat rocks thrown Into mud-holes in an irregular way by the early settlers of the towu. The town is poorly supplied with water, and a reservoir ou inc ivuuu wouiu reouce insurance, and would render destructive tires, such as all un watered towns have sooner or later, al most Impossible. If the old Board is run. it will no doubt adopt substantially the plat form anopiea i uesriay ingni. i nelr record on the Improvement question Is no doubt, misunderstood. 1 he town has fell severe v the effects of bad crops, and the people have been in no humor for improvements. Now that the earth has been blessed with two good crops, the people will respond liber ally to calls for Improvement, aud the old Board, if it expects re-election, will meet tne aemana oi tne people.

Instead of bciug envious of oursister county, Giles, because she has had the enterprise necessary to take the main line of the Memphis and Kuoxvllle through her borders, we com mend her for It. Indeed, it will be better for Pulaski and Columbin, for the road to run by both these towns.

" A recent communication to Hint excel lent paper the Foreut ami Strmm, written from Frankfort. Ky., contains the following paragraph: we nave here a minnow which 1 have never seen In any other pari f the world, aud my experience Is that it is more inviting to the small game ilsn, sal mon, bass and silver perch than any other. We call it a "steel back." because of Its re semblance to the popular minnow of that name, hut it is notof that genus, on the con trary, it. resembles the brook tront much more. It is generally found lnfthe most se cluded creeks, in shady pools, and under masscsof nags, lilies and rhododendron. It has on its back, and a grayish white under neath. It has microscopic scales, like those of the brook trout, and is full of life and activity. To my mind a fish who would re fuse him deserves to oenettea or trapped, ii that sp- cies of barbarous retribution is ever justifiable in any country." The minnow teferred to is eviueuuy tne oue Known in this country as the "chub " It is all that is claimed for it by the Kentucky correspond ent; for it is unquestionably the best min- uow lliat an angierever put on nis hook.

As they came down a hill at the head of Cathey s Creek, tne wauou turned over, and Kd., In trying to save one of Doctor Akin's little girls, let the wagon-body fall ou his left arm, breaking it in two places. This same arm has lieen broken seven different times. When there Is any act of bravery or self-sacrifice to perform, Kd. never counts the cost, but goes In, and gets hurt. When the young lady. Mis Prewett, died at Bea ver Dam, at K o'clock at night, he started immediately for Columbia, to get a hearse, lier.slc all night, and then started hack, rode nearly all night again, and did not get to sleep uutil 4 o'clock;, having done with out liolh restand sleep for thirty-six hours. Kd. is a noble fellow. The ladies would not let Ed. leave the SprlngsuntU they all left, because there was no getting along without him. When near Cross Bridges th y broke the wagon-tongue. Which delayed them some two hours longer ou the road. Ed. did not get his arm set until he arrived at this place, traveling a distauee of twenty-one miles wit h a broken arm, over a very rough road. He must have suffered dreadfully. He did not tell them It was broken until near Columbia. Joe. Heudley had the axle tree of his wagon broken the same day, coming from the same place, but arrived just liefore Dr. Akin. There were ten per sons In the wagon when It tnaned over. Eo was the only one hurt. He is indeed a very unfortunate -young man. Two beautiful young ladiesdidn't dress Ed's, wounds Tues day evening. The cotton prospects are much improv ed. The dry weather has put a stop to the sialk.and blooms and bolls have appeared in great numliers. Last week fields were white with b coins. A late Fall, such as we had several years ago, will give ns a more titan average crop of cotton. Farmers tell us that more top bolls are seen than usual. Mr. S F. Dyer, an ex perl need Mis. sissippi planter, recently removed to the Rock Spring neighisirhood, tells us that greenseed cotton will turn out much lieUer than the "blooded" cotton, as he calls it. He planted some of this "blooded" cotton wed, which cost hi in J.i.57 per bushel, and he thinks it will not turn him out more than four hundred pounds of seed cotton. Cotton was planted too thick this year the wet season made it grow rauk, and the ground is literally covered. The yiel i will depend greatly on the Fall If we have a lale Fall, we will have more than an aver age yield; If we have an early frost, the yield will be light, because we had a late Spring.

On last Thursday night the young meo ot our city met in convention to adopt measures lor ine improvement ot onr streets, water works, etc., and to norni nate candidsdes for city offices that would carry ont this design. Col. N. R. Wilkes was called to the chair. He related the object of the meet ing, and made some appropriate remarks, after which Messrs. A. it. U pshaw and Ed. D. Wilson were elected Secretaries. Motion made and carried that a com mittee be appointed to draft resolution!-. Messrs. J. B. Bond, John Latta, Jr., and W. C. Aydelott were appointed on the committee. After a short consultation, they offered tbe following: Whereas. The main considerations in a municipal government would be the health and comfort of the citizens as well as the prosperity of the body politic; and, Whereas. We believe that nothing more happily conduces to this end than a good supply of wholesome water, well paved streets and a thorough system of lighting the same; and. Whereas. Our city is really in need of all these things; therefore. Resolved 1st. That the people of this corporation demand of the incoming ad ministration that ther do take steps to supply the citizens with a complete and thorough system of water works ot suffi cient capacity and dimension to furnish an ample amount to all the citizens, up on terms of equality and exact justice to all. Resolved, 2d, That the people demand that the streets be put in a state ot thor ouch and desent repair, both as to the main streets and sidewalks, in accordance with the cornorate law. Resolved. 3d. That the people demand that some action be taken to light tbe citv at nipht. The Platform was adopted aiid great applanse, and candidates were immediate Iv nominated to carry it into execution W. J. Whitthorne said he thought this thine was too premature, and that the people should have a little more time for consideration. Messrs. J. r. Bond and Gid Alexander responded. Upon the question being called f r Mr. Whitthorne' s obiection8 were ruled down. A solid ticket was then offered as follows: Mayor, John P. Brown; Aldermen 1st Ward. Horace Frierson. Dr. Robert PiU low and Allen Powell: 2d Ward, A. D Frierson, L. Wood and Ed. Gamble; 3d Ward, Josh 0. Bailey, Dr. Joe P. Hern don and Frank Smith.

Can you tell me who has sheep to sell is the cons.ant enquiry. You can be ful ly supplied, gentlemen, in a few years, if the wholesome dog law enacted by the last Legislature is permitted to remain in force. It. ll. Moore, a hock trader, who is generally on the qvi rive for all of the bits ot I'bcle bam s Kags that are sometimes picked up in a trade, returned last week from "Wayne County, with a mixed drove ol sheep and cattle. The sensible and well timed article of "Ashwood'' in last week s issue, in regard to the Alianthus and Thistle, is universal ly endorsed by the people of this neigh borhood, especially as regards the lormer, which grows by the acre around here, and my woods-lot, that is not pastured regu larly, ia almost sure to be taken by it, It has no redeeming qualities that we know ot. We understand that it got its tartin this country by the Agricultural Depart ment of the Government sending its seed through the mails, recommending it as an ornamental shade tree; it was also thought that it would be beneficial ou the great, prairies of the West and Southwest, but that idea soon exploded, as it did not thrive without plenty of rain. The latter is more pernicious than the former; arm ed as it is with numberless keen thorns, it bids defiance to all stock, while its seed, enveloped in a bed of down, is wafted far and near by every breeze. It seems to us that this would be a fit rubject for the different Granges to discuss and act upon. Miss Belle Russell will open the Csmale school again at this place on next Mon day, 6th inst. Having a thorough and finished education, she is a deservedly popular teacher. We understand that the difference be tween 60 and 75 cents and $1 00 and SI 60 per bushel, for wheat, has opened the eyes of a great many of the good peo ple of Hickman County to some of the advantages of R.

Mrs. Henrietta Head, wife of G. Spen cer Head, died Adg. 31st, after a linger ing illness. See leaves a large family to mourn her death. The crop outlook for the past two weeks has been quite favorable to cotton, tbe weatber having been hot and dry. Our reporter overheard a conversation be tweeu a Williamson and a Maury Count v fanner, L. D. Banks and Capt. R. C. Gordon, last week. They estimate tbe cotton at a half crop, but if frost comes late there will be more than a half crop. Fodder 'pulling has been commenced by croppers and grasshoppers, the latter of whom are decided nuisances, One economical step taken by the far mers is raising Ihe'r own tobacco. Toey are determined not to be imposed on any longer by the high tariff flat-plug fellows. t ol. Kufus Coleman, that noted viclin ist and humorist of Hickman county, was a few days past baptized in the holy bonds of Mormonism; also Mrs. Charles Church. It is rumored that John Mul lins, who has already been baptized in thai doctrine, will again soon be dipped for his deceased mothe-: Mr. Andrew J. Kelly was baptized at ihe Delk ford, Duck river, Monday morn ing, August the 23d. A noted bachelor, not far from the vil lage, south side of Duck river, ws, not man7 days ago, knocked into a "cocked hat'' by a bunch of flowers, but has since so far recovered as to be out again, tho not in that flowery direction. Try 'em again. Rev. John Da Morton, of the Kettle Bend, preached a good sermon at the Bluff School, in the Bend, Sunday morns ing. Said place of worship is becoming one of the most popular in this s ec tionofthe county. The congregation wag quite large and intelligent. Mr. Morton's text was the 3oth chapter of Isaiah, which he explained with tact and skill so plainly that he that runs might read as to his faith. Among the unusual faces seen there was the charming and beautiful Miss Alice Whites'des and Miss Alice Kennedy, who is decidedly grace ful and winning. Mr. Jacob Blakeley, of Texas, also lent his presence. John Bull Reyier, Esq., of the Uamp- shire country, was in this section Inst week, and said it was all a mistake about nis going np in a Dai loon ana landing in Reeif jot Lake. He is still at his tannery, making tbe best ot leather says come on with your hio.es, and further says the crops of tbe Hampshire country are very good.

Tl , . - r - iue uneasiness oi tne larmers lor a time, caused by the luxuriant growth of tne stalk, ana tbe scarcity of blooms and bolls, is about over. The last two or three days ot warm, dry weather, has been extremely favorable for the rapid growth oi doiib, ana tne prospect lor a bna cotton crop is now much improved. Major Jas I" c j f ii r it , x. moure anu iur. o. in. ivogers nave some remarkably fine cotton; the Major's cotton is bending and breaking down un der the weight of bolls, and with a favor able fall he will easily make a bale to the acre, PERSONAL. Mrs, Fannie Rogers, after a protracted visit to her lelatives at Murfreesboro for tbe purpose of medical treatment, has returned to her home. Her health is somewhat improved, aud it is the sincere wish of her niaDy friends that the foot steps of disease mav be chased away by the bloom ot returning health. That courtly old bachelor. John Ma nier, of Marshall, a grandson of the iron nerved, gallant, fighting Colonel, Thos, Williamson, in the wars under Andrew Jackson, has beeu visiting around among his friends on the creek. John will sit off too far from tho young ladies to make much progress with them in the matrimo nial line. BABY0I.OOT. Glad tidings in the house of Glenn have caused the popular young merchant, W. B, Glenn, to stand about two inches tall er; ne is now eng iged in the study ot a late edition of humanity presented to him by his amiable and accomplished wife. The study is quite entertaining and vastly pleasing to William, as the volume is a masculine treatise, and it will no doubt take him nineteen or twenty years to complete the study of that pretty eight and u halt pound masculine brst edition. M. t. jug's WAT. The entertaining and witty correspond ent of the Herai.ii, M. T, Jug, has, it is suid, the best corn crop in the 20th dis trict, surrounded by a good ten rail fence. A horse belonging to one of his neighbors, atler getting into this held often, was caught by the Leetle Jug, who wrote on a card and tied to the horse s mane these words, "Please keep me out of M. T, Jugs cornheld. Old House. ' His neighbor, who was a very clever man, kept the horse up after that. VOCAL. Professor Allen, vocal music teacher, had a very interesting examination at o'd Lasea at the close of his school. The singing was remarkably line, especially the singing ot airs. Sue Gardner, ot St. Louis, tormerly Miss .Thompson, of Chapel Hill, Marshall county, and the beautiful and accomplished Miss Mollie Bills, also of Marshall, whose delightful singing proved them to be the very queens ot song. KELHU0US. Elder E. G, Sewell, ass isted by Profes sor Scoby, ot Alurtreesboro, has held a very successful meeting at the old Lasea Christian Church. There were eighteen additions to the church. Elder Sewell preached a series ot eight sermons while conducting the meeting. His sermon on the fourth Sunday in August, from the the text beginning at the 16th verse, 9th chapter of Hebrews, was a very able and interesting discourse, Jhe Christian church at Lasea is in a very flourishing condition, and her members by their up right and Christian walk and earnest pi ety is a shining mark that should cause other denominations to piously strive to emulate or surpass. SPIRITUAL. As one of the symptoms of the revival iu business, there have been two new groceries started lately. Mr. J. A. Lo gan and Mr. Samuel Logan have opened at Rally Hill; Mr. Jeff. Peoy has again re-opened at the bridge. At Mardison s Mills Mr. Jackson also dispenses the ar dent making thiee groceries all in easy range of Flat Creek. '1 here isn't a bit of use now of Flat Creekers getting too dry to tell the truth with such an abundance of whisky so convenient aud close. "HE LOSTlilS TiLLOW. So said J., who had been down to Jack son's where he imbibed the corn juice so freely, and turned his little finger over his thumb so often, that he could hardly have told whether the world was round or square. He finally started home after taking on about eighteen hundred and a sack of salt. On his way home, feeling the need of repose, he rode to one side of the road, and seeing a rock pile which re minded him in the moonlight of a feath er bed, be made an excellent jump irom his horse and lit on his back in the cen tre of the pile, where he took a refreshing nap. Corner time in the night one ol his pious neighbors passing by heard him cussing very much. On inquiring what was the matter, l.e said he had lost his in I low, and he didn t believe that there was a pound of feathers in his bed. MT. I'LtASAM ITEMS. Mr. 0. C. Owen, our most enterprising nercbant and townsman, left for New lork last Monday morning, lor the pur pose of purchasing a Fall and Winter stock of dry goodsj boots, shoes, hats, queens- ware, hardware, &c. llis trade is so enor mous, and his stock so larve, that it re quires three rooms, which are connected by inner doorj to contain it, and the as sistance of three or four clerks to wait upou h:s numerous customers during the business season. His trade comprises. besides that ot this place and vicinity, a considerable portion ol the counties of Nayne, Lawrence and Lewis. Mr, Owen is a gentlemen of fine business qualifica tions, warm heart, aud never fails to be stow liberally upon every charitable ob ject, as well as that which affects the pub lic good; he has by his close attention to business, gentlemanly bearing and fair dealing, won a large and lucrative trade, and the confidence and esteem of this en tire community. He is certainly one of the most energetic and vigilant men of our country, and now realizes a hand some income. His new stock of goods will be on hand in a few weeks, and we assure the public, that tfiay will be of the best selection, aud will be ofl'ered at moderate prices. We rcqne t all thos , who may t:ced anything in his lioe, to give hi a call before pcrchasing else where. We now answer to the best of our knowl edge ami ability ihe query. Who has the best piece of corn in this section of country? Colonel J. W. S. Ridley, owns a field, about fifty acres of which lies just opposite Maj. B. R. Harris, which is pro nounced tobe the most regular as a stand, largest stalk, and abounds with the largest ears. The land upon which it is, was not many vears since.to use the common phra seology, "too poor to sprout peas. See what careful managements proper adopta tion. ( utilization will secure! There is a much larger crop of Sugar cane and tobacco in cultivation this year than usual, find it is producing re markably well. We hope that its culti vation may be sufficiently remunerative to subvert tbe growth of cotton in our county, which is not suited to the' king' col'on. 1 here exists at present a considerable amount of sickness in this place and vi cinity. Mrs Mattie Irwin, the wife of Mr. S. W. Irwin, a citizen of our tjwn, who had been dangerously ill, with tjphoid fever, we arc glad to learn is much bet ter. They have a little daughter very sick with the same disease. These are the first cases of this malady, we have heard of in this town for several years. The musical entertainment, given Mrs.Mamna Hunter on Saturday nicht last, was a most charming affair. At an early hour a large number of literary and artistic yonng ladies and gentlemen had assembled together in the spacious parlor of that Queenly lady, Mrs. H., to listen to the lovelT vocalists. Miss Mat tie Herndon and Miss Mollie Ward, who sang enchantingly on the occasion, and we were intoxicated, dispite ourself, by the marvellous magic, the delicious intri cacies, the luxurious richness of tbe voluptuous charm of song with a spell which, the moment it ceased, was broken. Their rendition of the celebrated song, Judge Not ' was sublime, and the open ly expressed opinions ol a lady, who sat near us. music can mount no nigner than in this exqisite creation, which is I stamped as the master-piece of the Mas- I. m , 1 r ?11 ter. We hope the ladies will ever bear the words dt this beautiful song in mind, and judge not. Mr. J. O. J Ingram left this place last Monday fot Indiana, to purchase mules for the Southern market Mr. Willie Howard is engaged in the same business at Green Castle, Indiana. A party of modern Nimrods, composed of Willie Barrow, of Ark., Willis Conner, of Miss., 1 nomas Barrow, Mann lJawson, Hint. Kittrell and others of this vicinity, left thisclace Thursday. Sept. 2d. for the waters of Piney, in Lewis county, to hunt deer. They expected to bejoinet by Col. Bulger Thomas, Jim Hannah, Reese Thomas, and others of the Bigbyville neighborhood, at the hunting grounds. Deer bad better hide out as Bulger will have Miss Betsey along. We heard a geatlemeo say, who lis tened to Gen. Whitthorne's speech at Lawrenceburg recently, that it was the great eat effort of his life. We think the best speech we ever heard from that dis tinguished orator and statesman was de livered at Waynesboro, in the race for Congress, last fall, against Hannah Gibbs. Gibbs, in his speech, said some thing rather detrimental about Gen. Whitthorne s position in the army. When Whit, arose to reply, there was in his eyes the swift light, which swept over the audience like the eagle's glance, on his lips the slight smile that his opponent dreaded, while the lucid, classic, resist less flow of his oratory rolled on, never losing its dignity, while he rose to de nunciation, holding in passion while lash ed in scorn, fascinating the ear by the melodious music ot voice, while it scathed with bitter and mocking irony, or soared to stately and measured rebuke. H spoke long, aud with a maaterly elo quence. Loud and repeated cheers thundered through the caurt-room, as his keen logic mercilessly dissected Hannah and proved him to have been a Con lederate drummer; and drumming young men into the Confederate army to destroy the best government the world ever saw. Hannah's wits, ever after this speech was like his wool badly mixed, and that was what was the matter with Hanna-b " There is a time in the affairs of men when taken at its flood leads on to for tune. ' Amid the allurements and fasci nations of pleasure, with the gales of nn clouded prosperity visiting him, and as it was his birthday, he concluded to take a voyage upon life s ruffled waves. With this thought, he stepped aboard of Cap'. Barnes' old whim-a-diddle. freighted with jewel Wo. 1, and started for Mt. Joy. Tbe sails were hoisted, the news " all well ' was heard, and away they went Everything appeared as tranquil as the unruffled surface of the Silver Lake- No demon raised its black and terrific form before him. The smiles of Heaven played disportingly around the o'd concern. His eyes became fastened upon his sparkling little jewel, and his ears were saluted by the syren song of pleas ure. He never looked to calculate the distance he passed, nor did he keep a lookout lor that bole in the road: still onward in his wild career, the waves of trouble began to dash furiously against his once peaceful mind. In a few brief moments something busied, and he found himself standing on his head, with that classic organ buried in a caput-covering, about as long as a yard-stick, which had been presented by a lriend aa a birthday present, with the request that he wear it in memonam. Ihe noise made by the letting down of the concern brought Mr I. to the scene of the disaster, who saw what looked like the inverted governor of a steam engine before his eyes. Mr. 11. was standing on his head, and making eccentric motions towards the heavens with a pair of stout legs encased in a cream - colored what-you-may-call - 'em The noise that now came ont of that hat. and the violent gyrations of the sufferer, convinced Mr. 1. that the young man had an appoplectic attack, for certain. Finally understanding the situation, and seeing death by suffocation, Mr. I. being fertile in resources, placed his right foot on tbe orison-house ot the voum? man. and catching hold of his extremities, gave a strong pull, it was a question for some time which would yield first, the hat or his legs; but nature does its work better than art. so the hat gave way and H. was free from his tormentor, with the loss of the brim of his token of friendship, a lock of his golden hair, and a piece of his right ear. With many misgivings, such as the ignorant have of Fridays, thirteen at a table, and other superstitious errors, he put on what was left of that hat, shoul dered his buggy cushion, took an affec tionate leave of his little jewel, mounted his old mule and rode quietly home, if not wiser, a sadder man. lwo female pedestrians, while peram bulating around some time last week, carrying with them two children, one an infant and the other a little boy, stopped at the residence of Mr. James A, Frier son, three and a half miles north of this place, and insisted upon leaving the little boy with Mrs. Frierson, which at first she was somewhat reluctant to receive, bnt when they inlorraed her they would come on to this place and leave him with some one, she consented. She endeavored to obtain some infotmation regarding the -l:u i- i .1 r. x .x . r cuuu, which toey rciuseu, saying mat n they gave his history she would not be. lieve it, and lei", leaving the child with her, where it will be" well cared for. They stated they had been living in the neighborhood ot Shady urove, in Hick man county, and refused to make known their names. Who knows but what this may be the long lost Charley Ross ? We are informed that a society has been recently organized by the young ladies at Waynesboro, for the purpose of procuring funds to repair and oth erwise beautify the Church at that place. 1 bey have adopted a novel plan to raise money, which meets with our hearty approbation, and that is they occupy their spare moments in making beautiful cra vats, which tbey dispose ot to young men, at the low price of fifty cents. Wc are inclined to believe the affair will prove a success, as we have heard of two of our Bachelor friends, who have invested in a beautiful necktie each and now purpose to make a liberal bid for a tier. Mr. J. P. Goodloe, Willis Councr, Hint. Kittrell and Johnnie Barrow re turned from St. Louis, Mo., a few days since, where they had been on a pleasure irm. Maj. John Dawson, Willie Barrow and Mann Dawson returned from Buffalo last week, where they had been on an angling expedition. 1 hey were not very success ful, as fish were not biting freely. There is a very interesting revival of relijaon going on at Stone's Chapel, near this place. About thirty-five or forty persona have professed religion np to tbe present time. The meeting has been conducted by the Rev. J. S. Frierson, who has preached several beantitul sermons He is assisted by several other Qfninent divines. Dr. Wash. Long has in his possession some sweet potato vines which have grown on them two very pretty flowers. These are the first blooms we ever saw on this kind of vine. Card. finding that I have been nominated for re election for Alderman in la ward on both tickets presented by the citizens, I would say that although I feel grateful for the compliment, my business is of such a nature that I must respectfully decline to serve, if elected.

Well, it did not, and we -are undecided whether to attribute her irritability, when ti e subject is mentioned, to indigestion Or d.sappointment. R. SPAINU II ILL MEMS. by THE HILIBOROCOH. N. C. REPOSDm Through the kindness of a lady lriend, who was a few years ago a resident ol tbia grand old borough, we have tbe melancholy pleasure of perusing tbia ancient newspaper now In the fifty-tin h ? - oi its existence, ii comes to lis n deep mourning, on account of tbe death of North Carolina's greatest statesman, Gov. W'm. A. Graham, wh. i or mt iasi nan century, una Deen a res ident of said town. Gov. Graham waa truly a great and good man. Tbe wri ter knew him when he first entered upon tbe duties ot that profession, ol wnicu ne was ever one oi its brightest ornaments, ana a rew years later, when ne was not or choice, Dut oy the par tiality of friends lorced Into the turbid waters of political strife, be fully main tained that dignitv of character, that high toned and honorable bearing, which continued to adorn his lite to its close. His was a lite, without spot or biemisn to mar its beauty, and well may tbe old Nortb State mourn his loss, for his death te a National calamity. At the time that Gov. Graham commenced tha practise of law. in Hillborouch. that town was the home of Judge Kuffin.

A OOOD EXAMl'I-K. In last week's Herald, mention w;is made of Gen. Tom Winder. For the encouragement of our young men, it may not be considered impertinent, in tbe old friend and school mat n of bis father, tbe lamented Col. Van Win der, of Tbibadeaux, La., to tell what Up knows. By tbe casualties of war, tho large estate ol Col. Winder, "took wings ana new away," leaving the iamily with out little more than a bare sup port. Tom, then but a boy, seeing that the number of slaves belonging to bis father, had been freed by tbe govern nietit, and his splendid sugar estates had thereby become valueless, deter mined at ouce toprepaie himself ior tho active business ot life. To this end be improved his education, and then taught school for a v. bile, thereby mak ing money to advance bis education. and thus ho continued, finally taking a regular Law cause. Inheriting the talents of his grandfather f elix Urun dy, we find him, when but little past bis maiority, at bis childhood's borne in the old Parish of La Foucbe, La., tho At torney General of the District. Ho is now up on a visit to bissister and broth er-in-law, Col. John McGavock, of Wil liamson, in this connection it may be considered pardonable, to relate an in cident in the history of tbe life of the lather of Gen. Tom Winder, as related to our reporter by tbe Rev. Elbelbert Hatcher, of precious memory, who as Agent of the American Bible Society, visited Tbibedeaux. La., during tbe ses sion of a Methodist Annual Conference at that place, Mr. Hatcher was stop ping al a hotel in tbe town, when be was taken sick with an attack of fever. Soon after bis prostration, Col. Winder called to see him, a stranger, who upon introducing himself, said: '! have cull ed to see if you will go with mo to my house, a short distance in tho country, that myself and family may have tbe pleasure of waiting on you during your sickness." Tbe invitation was gladly accepted, the splendid carriage ami horses awaiting for tbeui at tbe door, soon conveyed tho sick minister to the palatial mansion, which amid the fra grance of tropical flowers and under the umbrageous foliage of beautiful magnolias, proved to tbe pure and good Hatcher an Eden of comfort a delight ful retreat from the noise and dust of town, when his convalescence was sjiees dy, pleasant and permanent, kind hearts and tender bands ministered to his nect-fisitiee, all of which was kindly remembered by him to tbe close of bis brilliant and useful me. ANDREW J011NHON. The proposition come up from various on roes, to erftct on Canitol Hill. Nash ville, a monument to the memory ot tbe late President Johnson. Wbilo thore can be no objection to tbe carrying out of tbia wish, on the part ol bis friends, a decent respect for tbe opinions of all true Southern people, would suggest tbe propriety of not forgetting in mis laud able enterprise, tbe honored ami lameii ted President Polk, who certainly is en titled to a full share of tho gratitude of the American people. Republics, if not uugrattul, are too olton forgetful of tbe services ot the noblest and t-est ol her eons. It is true that James Knox Polk basleft a monument in the boarls of his countrymen, second to tbatol none of the statesmen of Tennessee save and except the hero of tbe Hermi tage, yet thousands would rejoice to see suitable monument erected to ins memory on the highest point ol llio Capitol grounds iu tbe city, whore peacefully rests bis mortal remains, in hope of a blissful immortality.

The reason why we say tho Hame tish is. because no other fish of tbia kind was put in the pond, l'leaso in form us Mr. Fisherman Editor.how lonir a fish of this kind lives. Dr. McCoy W.

It bus now been three weeks slnco Mr, thos. White met with bis accident: it has been a matter of astonishment to his physicians and every one else that he has done so well. This ia mainly at tributable to his lino health and bis so calmly and quietly resigning himself to un condition, indeed a murmur has not escaped bis lips since bis wound was first dressed. If be is asked tho question, "bow be takes tbe matter no coolly," bis reply is "a mail's religion is not worth much to bun if it will not sustain bim under such trying cireuiu stancos." A. C. Thompson says Mr. White is tbe most energetic mau in all this country. Mr. A. It. Kerr, has lieen elected Su periutendent ol tbe Sunday School in place of Mr. White. On last Sunday after Sunday School was over, the members of tho church in a body went to the residence of Mr. W., and par took of the Lord's Supper with bim. Miss Msggio Wilson, niece of Mr. John Braden, is very ill with typhoid lever at bit home, but we bono with the ablet-kill of her physician, Dr. William son, that she will not have a severo at tack.

The croquet players of this village woro invited to joiu iu a game at the Academy, on Saturday last, and it seems that, a couplo ol our players beat a coiiile of their players in a game, when the lady was beard to remark to her partner, "that she would not care. only tbo idea of being beat by tbe Campbell Station players." It appears by lhat, that she considers hersell a better player than tbe C. S. players, while tbe opposite party is bappy to say, that as bad players as she may con sider tbem, they cau play woll enough to beat ber anyway, and she may thank i ho iti-.v bad condition or the same that in all probability savod them from what is termed iu tbe game, a "white wash." HICKMAN tOMIV ITEMS.

We bavo a good deal of sickness in our couuty at this time; tbe most prev alent disease is dipht heria. Though our physicians can manage tho disease sue cessfully, they accassionally lotto a case. Dr. Toole, a very accomplished gen tleman and physician, has recently settled in Centreville, to practice; bis profession. Ho bails from Nashville, and we understand, comes well recom mended. Success to him, and all such who cant their lots in our midst. Mr. Settle, of the well known shoe bouse of Cook, Settle A, Co., of Nash ville, made a shoit call on tbe Centres ville merchants, Blew days since. Ho was returning towards bis homo, from an extended trip of several weeks In tbo Tennessee River country. 1 f every w liolesale house of Nashville bad their Settle, country merchants could buy their good entirely on orders.
