Columbia . to be honored during the
Centennial year of 1X76. First comes the an
nual meeting of the Tennessee Press Associ
ation, which will assemble here in June,
an! partake of the hospitalities of our town.
The Association has many brilliant and fas
cinating men, and our eople look forward
with pleasure to the meeting. One young
lady has exproo-d a desire to make the ac
quaintance of the talented poet-editor, Dr.
R. L. C. White not aware, possibly, of his
matrimonial condition. What a meeting
that wiil lie-when Dr. White, Gen. Bullock,
and Gen. Doak meet. The other meeting
will be the Animal Conference of the M. K.
Church. Now, these are important occa
sions, when representative men from all
parts of the State will examine and criticise
our town ; let us le ready to bear the criti
cism. We ought to build a good town hall,
and finish the M. F.. Churcn.
The disuruceful Kninia Mine fraud has
come to surface. The five million dollars
were raised in England for this concern,
mainly on the sirent'ji, of the name of our
Minister to Kngland, (Jen. Schenck. The
five million dollars was all expended except
ten or fifteen thousand dollars, and the En
gllsh people are investigating the scheme,
nd ra.ticularly severe on ttTose connected
who H. u win te rememberert that our
Minister was snubbed by the English arls
tocracy severr' years aeo, on account of
his connection with this disgraceful affair.
Iresident Grant s immediate friends
seem to have a bad faculty of getting Into
ucr. crapes, ana, the worst or all, he never
deserts them. America stands disgraced, in
the person of her minister, before the great
est nation of the old world. Anybody but
Gkrant would caJl Seherick home, and con
sign htm to the disgrace he so justly de
serves. Such is the fruit of Grantism.
ine roriy-fourui i ongresa will com
mence its first session on next Mondav. In
many respects this i 'ongress is the most in
leresnngone since the war. It is the first
one since iMil tint the Democratic party has
not rxn in a hopeless minority. Now that
party has a large majority in the Lower
House, and are in condition to hold the Hen
ate in awe, and to hold the small Republi
can majority to a si net accountability. The
all absorbing cjiiesiion which now fills the
public mind, is the election of Speaker o
the House. Although there are a number of
distinguished Democrats named in connec
tion with the position, the race is evidently
between Kerr, of Indiana, and .Sam J. Kan
lall, of Pennsylvania. Randall displayed
considerable skill last winter in the House
at the head of the Democratic delegation, in
defeating the odious Force Bill, which the
Republicans attempted to drive through the
House, which gave him conspicuous promi
nence before the country; otherwise he has
not been very prominent, and is reallv not
regarded as a man above second-rate ability
Kerr, on the oilier hand, is one of the ablest
men iu the House, and of commanding in
Alienee with the party and country, and
would lie a strong card in the great centen
liial presidential race. With such a man as
Thomas F. Bayard at the head of the ticket
and M. C. Kerr as speaker of the House, the
Ilemocrntic party would make a splendid
start for the winning post. Kerr evidently
has the inside track so far, although his euc
lutes are trying very hard to Identify him
with the soft money thi movement, but
this will not hurt him. on the other hand,
the last few days lias developed the. suspic
ion, at least, of a Inivain between Ran
dall and Tom Scott (.n the Texns Pacific
Railroad job, which is looming up into
prominence, and is very damaging to Ran
dall's prospects. The Democratic party will
fight very shy of this Pacific Railroad scheme
which Scott A t o. will try very hard tocarrv
through Tlie next Congress, and if this coali
tion oetvee:i Randall and Scott should be
proved on them, Kerr will win easily.
What ShaU s To Absut It?
From the Lebanon Herald, Nov. 24.
With the be-t intentions in the world.
our friend, Hon. C. C. (Jiers, has caused
ia serious annoyance. While in A ash
ville, the other d.ty, we dropped into
his Art tia'.lery, as wo frequently do,
finding it cue ot the ploasantest possi
ble places to while away a spare hall
hour. With the reuitrk that his gal'

straight way, ad, bednre wo had time to

The Aster Estate.
New York Tribune.
There has been much speculation as
to the value r f real and personal prop
erty Jelt by M r. Aslor. Some ot tho a
luounts named arc alleged by exjeti
enced financiers to be simply ridiculous
By some the value of Mr. "Astor's real
and personal I property was placed as
bigh ?2tHi,iHi,K o, while very many es
timate it at not less than $Hx .000,000.
In the obituary of Mr. Astor printed in
Tribune the estimate of his property
was given ss n t to exceed f K,wm,000
Those whose opinions are entitled to
weight say that this is probably nearer
1 . il 1 1. the larger estimates.
A gentleman whose word carries
weight in matters lot this kind Baid a
lair basis on which to figure would be
f 15,000,000 as the araonnt of real and per
sonal property left by Jacob Aslor to
kta bam Will: . . 1 1 -
o-ju , iu mm at lea uesio ot tne for
mer in 1848. The estate ot John Jacob
Astor was estimated at 120,000,000, and
the bulk of it was left to WUlUmlB. As-
r.l...u,iuo oi uia ueacn. it would
probably be much nearer fl5,000,000
than -n f.nn iwi t j . '
ivw,vw,b uu rauuouuy wtui i"
ways to exaggerate the wealth of a rich
man. However, this gentleman said,
allow $15,000,000, as the amount left
William B. Astor. This amount at six
per cent, interest for 27 years the time
which has elapsed since the death of
John Jacob Astor would have added
?24,300,000 to the principal, makings
total off 39,300.000. Or, if the amount
leit William B. Astor was 118,000,000,
the interest at 6 por cent, would be f 29,
080,000, and a total of interest and prin
cipal of f47,0S0,00O. The compound in
terest and increase in the value ot cer
tain portions ot the property.be thought,
would be tarly otfset by the taxes and
assessments on property allowed to re
main unimproved, and losses ot various
kinds through depreciation of other
portions of the real estate and securi
ties. Mr. Astor was known to be a very
careful man, preferring small and sure
returns, rather than venture some risks,
which might bring large returns and
might result in a loss of the capital in-vesta-i.
Were it capable of demonstra
tion, the gentleman said, he would be
willing to risk his reputation for care
ful calculation in sayine that the estate
was to-dav worth less rather than over
$50,000,900
The will of Mr. Astor will be looked
lor with Interest, as possibly giving a
air indication of the worth ot the astate.
( onflicttng Report of the Cot
ton Crops
The New York Herald calls attention
to a matter of supreme importance to all
growers, dealers in, and manufacturers of
cotton the apparently irreconcilable
difference between the reports of the Na
tional Cotton Exchange and those of the
Ycricultural Bureau at Washington and
gives the annexed table, comprising the
estimates of the United States, based on
October and November reports from
those sources, as showing the inconsist
encies and contradictions complained of:
Cotton Agricultural Average.
Exchange, Bureau,
bales. bale. bales.
October 3,87,cm0 4,222,001) 4,040,000
November 4,1177,000 363,000 4,O4&,000
Average 4,036,000 4,863,000 4,025,000
In New York, the impression seems
to prevail that the report of the Nations
Cotton Exchange for October was mani
pulated in the interest of the bull party
to the speculation which was in progress;
and it is also believed that the construc
tion which has been put upon the Novem
ber report of the bureau is forced and
unnatural ignoring, perhaps, the increas
ed acreage, and the tact that the mcreas'
ed percentages of yie.a take place in 6ec
tions where the greater proportion of the
crop is usuallj grown, and the decrea-ed
percentages in sections where the growth
of cotton is at the best, not large, bhould
the November estimate of the Agncuitur
al Bureau prove correct, the receipts at
the ports must henceforth show a falling

To the Editor of the Herald and Mail:
It has ben several weeks since you

No news of very much importance since

some have finished gathering corn, and

ure. But 1 suppose the bountituiness ot
the corn crop, will supply this vacancy,
for it is said to bo betterjthan it has been

ty of bread and molasses for another

or not.

To fhe Editor of the Herald and Mail:
This Institution is still in a most
flourishing condition. One by one is
still added to the number on the rolls,
and could you be present some time at
roll-call you would think that it was al
most interminable. From every part
of the South, under almost every
nomenclature imaginable.are found stu
dents who with buoyant expectations
prosecute their study. The Professors
are all men of profound judgment and
require the work done in good order,
and an hour eacii day is devoted to the
elucidation and investigation of the
subjects separately considered. There
are now about 30 Biblical, 16 Law, and
140 Medical students, besides many who
pursue the thorough classical course,
making a total of 280. Mr. 11. B.
Hughes, a young medical student, is
making rapid progress, giving a most
thorough examination to his profes
sion, and I predict that erelong he will
reflect great honor on this University,
aud be an ornament to the medical
world. The building is still incom
plete, but is daily rendered more im
posing by the finishing touch which
the painter contributes. I went to the
top ot the steeple yesterday, and took a
view oi the surroundings, which is mag
nificent; it proudly overlooks the resi
dences of the Otlicials and Professors
the most prominent is the home ot Bish
op McTyeire, beautifully situated in the
rear of the University. The health of
thr students has been only moderately
good, but I think will favorably com
pare with any body of pupils. I have
had the melancholy occasion to be pres
ent at the funeral of one of my fellow
students, a Mr. Cooper, a young man of
high-toned, moral principles and intel
lectual ability, besides a devoted chris
tian, who met death without a fear.
The price of board ranges from ?20.00
to $25.00, which is considered very rea
sonable to these who have been resi
dents of Nashville for any length of
time; the fare is good and substantial,
and rooms well furnished with all that
is necessary lor a student. A street car
runs to and from the city, which is a
mile distant from the University. Near
ly every day visitors come out to ad
mire this colossal structure, and are re
ceived with great courtesy by the chan
eel lor, and shown through the building.
The Library is being daily supplied
wHh the best of both modern
and ancient literature; almost any
work can now be had by call
ing upon the Librarian. The museum
has quite a collection of geological spec
imens, which are very essential to the
profitable pursuit of this science. - They
have in the Library the bronze statutes
of Bulion, Huxey, Cuvier and other
scientific men, who have thrown such
a broad light upon their department.
The skeleton ot the huge megatherium
in the museum is, I suppose, 20 feet
long, and must have been ot ponderous
bulk when animated with life. Also an
entire skeleton ot the genus homo in a
solid rock, thus giving it a tomb that
Time's corroding touch cannot obliter
ate or annul. The Chemical Depart
ment is the most perfect now in the
United States; the apparatus is entire,
and every point of this important
branch is ably delineated and experi
mented, by Prof. Lupton. The services
at Chapel every morning at 84 o'clock
are conducted by one of the Faculty,
and every Sabbath evening an address
is made or a sermon preached for the
young men. all of which are very logical
and are replete with good counsel, which
if adhered to will not only fit them for
this stage ot action, but for the bound
less eternity. The portrait of Commodore
Vanderbilt is prominent in the Chapel,
and is said to be a well executed design
by those who have seen the original.
Well, I will not weary you with any
more at this time, but will bring my
letter to a terminus, by thanking you
kindly for the Herald and Mail,
which comes every Saturday, to my
great delight.
I remain yours faithfully,

Franklin Review.
Our merchants are complaining bitterly
about the habit of a great many persons go
ing to Xashville for everything thev want,
'i'hey say they sell goods as cheaply'here as
they do in Nashville. Now we wish every
body would test this matter, and buy their
goods at home. Thiswav of trading from
home is wrong. We must help each other,
anl encourage home folks and home enter
prises. Money matters are tighter now than at
any time within th recollection of the old
est inhabitant. Merchants, farmers, pro
fessional men, mechanics, laborers, all are
pressed tor cash. Iu our opinion one thing
that contributes tolliis state of affairs is the
fact that there is a disposition with too mam
mon to hold all the monev they get aud let
their debts float. A few hundred dollars ex
pended in tlie payment of debts in our
midst, would lie made to do the mission of
thousands. .Suppose everybodv would de
termine to liquidate hisimlebtedneav as fast
as possible, and cany the execution into
practice, how short a time would expire be
fore things would brighten up again. The
money now stored away in private places
if started into circulation in the manner
indicated, M ould, in our opinion, loosen up
mattertfwonderfully. Every man who owes
money, and locks up a dollar from circula
tion instead of applying it to his honest
debts, is contributing more than he is aware
of to hard times so much complained of.
There is scar-ity enough of money in circu

This is in part the effect of contraction.
