Au elaborate manuscrlut. written and de livered ou the subject of Temperance, by Miss Sue Underwood, at the Presbyterian Church in this place not long since, was a perfect gem of literary beauty, it was writ ten in exceedingly pure and classic nglisb. and spoken in a clear, ringing and musical voice, that was beautiful and irradiated as with celestial sweetness, and perfectly elec trified the large audience. Bhe proceeded in a beautiful way to speak: of the good that Temperance Societies have effected in the country, and showed in a graphic style. that intemperance is the fountain head of all the misery entailed upon the land. The anizel smile that nlaved innocently unon the glowing cheek; the heaven descending rays of prosperity upon the frugal, and the thanksgiving of the pore in lieart, which are enbalmed in eternal remembrance, all bear the conclusive and satisfactory evi dence of the utility of Temperance Societies.

Now, Mr. Editor, is not this, too much? While he more than intimates that 1 am engaged in some clandestine speculation, he snoots so rireaaruny scattering l can neitn er dodge nor return the fire. Does he mean to strike at the fair sex of "Old Maury" by insinuating inai it. is a matter oi any mo ment to tfaem. what sort of flesh I trade? The Captain, I m sure, Is-too gallant for this. But hear him again, "The doctor has been riding among the widows down here, but declares It is not in his own behalf." Now this is too bad. How can I ever come back to Maury County and look my lady friends in the face again, I fear this sta,b will prove fatal. If the Captain had only given name, age, residence, capital, etc., it, would not have Deen so nau, dul to indirect ly charge a fellow being with couspiring with a doctor to riae in nis oenaii among the widows of a whole State, without limit, and select at discretion, is more than man of any ordinary amount of the "divine af flatus" ean stand. I beseech, you Mr. Edi tor, as you love the ladles of "Old Maury" to try, and get the Captain to fix this matter in some sort of a tangible shape. As this was not enough to satisfy his thirst, (for I don't know wnau, ne says the doctor is coming to Maury, and not after irmly either. Does he mew by this that I have traded off (like I would a mule) one of the ladies oi the home oi my cnuunoou for a Mississippi widow? But for one redeem ing sentence "don't know what trade was maae, ' l uiina r snouia iw oouna witu an due resnect to the widow, to say. "coffee and pistols for t wo." But wo is me, here comes the unkindest cut of all. "Tell the Major the black mule had the swinny, and was wind- broken, but 1 don't tell L ." Now.this looks to me very much like a conspiracy between the Captain and the Doctor to cook my dough, not only ln Maury but In Mis sissippi also; and not only ln "other mat ters" but in the mule trade as well. But who is L. ? Tell the captain not to wait till next Fall, other mailers may require my undivided attention thn; bnt send the "black mule"- to Sardis within the next thirty days, by "Registered letter," or other mail, and upon arrival, his estimated value will be paid on delivery, for I always guarantee tne soundness oi property in mules as well as in other matters, and pre fer to trade that way. Now, all that stuff about bridal tours, bridals, martingales, fodder, etc., I can't understand at all, and it reads to me like the Captain had been on a trip furlopghed, to Mr. Lancford's, Lush es', or West!. Now, my dear Mr. Editor, do try ana gel tins matter nxeu up, ana till then, say to friends, especially the ladies, that it is very uncertain when I shall see them again, but they may rest assured that I have not yet made any trado with tue Mississippi widow.but say further, 1 am hu man. aud am ready io he the teconuone lrom .naury . j- ju-jw suit auu get a trump.

Some in the neigh borhood are realizing the fact tliat a gieat responsibility is resting upon them in ref erence to the education of their children, aud are fully discharging their duty, while others do not care to meet this responsibili ty, which they owe both to their county and their God.

Now, we will inquire ot Mocking ffird, why he re turned so soon. We term it Saturday evening Sociable, be cause the good citizens honor us with their presence every Saturday evening, and jass uie time in lestivity; out tne tauies com plain that they have to order 11 o'clock din ners and S o'clock suppers. Some ot our young people have been talk ing a great deal about going to Presbytery at Lasting Hope, the 4th week iu April; and since Turtle Dove has said iu his or her communication tliat s boats and turkeys were being put up for the occasion, we sup- iiose tney win talk more tnan ever, nut we believe it was stated thU efforts would be made to accommodate the minister only. and we don t know what they will do about mac. In oneof our communications,- we ursed upon our citizens to go to work and build a church, but have heard of no efforts being made towards it, and should we fail, we hone our Santa Fe friends will be liberal enough to spare us one. as they have three. Now, wc would not have our M. E. C. or C.

We would say to A.

Our citizens, many of them, are proud of the Narrow Uauge Railroad.

We have a regular debatiue society. The subject or the last discussion was, "Resolv ed. That capital liunislimen t Khoiild he abolished.

The question was decided in lavor of tne amrmauve. rue jicopie are geHiiig so conscientious ou this subject that it will be linpossicie to get a jury to nanir a man. The question for next Saturday night 'is, "Which isa mau tlie most susceptible of. cajHivatiou by beauty or wealth." Strange to say an uie single men ot the society lake beauty and all the married men take wealth. This cau ouly be accounted for iu this way the single men have not been taken in by beauty. There is a nourishing school al llock Spring, conducted byProf. w. T. I'sserv, D.D. Prol. Lssery is a splendid teacher, and the neigh borhood was lucky iu procur ing him as a teacher, and also as i-ieacher.

There is nothing to keep Rock Spring from naviug as goou a scnooi as mere is in tlie county.

While this committee was out, .tir. tvuiiir auuresseu tne meetiua: in nis re marks, he criticised the course that the HEKALn axd Mail had pursued, which were replied to. aud which we will phv more ottentiOL t j hereafter. The resolutions had but three points iu them; the endorse ment of Hayes' Southern PoUcy, as exiness ed, dec, the appointment of Key, and the ratification of John C. Brown accepting a position on tho Louisiana committee. The resolutions wero well sugar-coated like Hayes' - inaugural. When the resolutions were put to the crowd for adoption, it is tlie opinion of all that they were lost,exoept the chairman and those who were very anxious tor them to pass. The fair expression of the white vote would have forever sealed them as being a little too rough for them to swallow; yet, the black sheep, which had, no uouui. ueen Drougnt mere ior me pur pose, voted lona and loud for tho adoption of theiu; and as they cannot prove to be the expression of tho opinion of tlie Democrats of this county, we are not willing to let them go as adopted. If a gang ol negroes, although headed by a few while genllemuu express tne opinion or tne Democratic i 'ar ty of this county, we don't belong to it. Col. Wade, lieu. Polk, Hon. 8. M.

When the honest yeomanry of the country saw Mr, Arneil, Col.

The people are true, and will never be humbugged into endorsing a fraudulent President, nor any of his acts, until he gives up his stolen goods; a simple division of them among the weak kneed is not enough. From ail we cau learn, not tweuty-flve white Democrat endorsed the resoiutious. colonel cooper, wno is loved and admired by every man lu the county, tor ougnt to ue,) inroweu a iximosneu luto the ranks of the "ratifiers." and made such telling points against the folly, and crimi nality of endorsing Hayes or Key, that when he left, nearly all the Democrats went wuii mm, leaving tne meeting composed mainly of negroes. Some eood Demociats and nice gentlemen, were iu the meeting at first, Jiut they soon regretted the step they had taken or looked like they did. When tlie honest yeomen, unconnected with Town Rings." heard their beloved Whit thorne was going to speak in the court- nouse, tney literally ri-oi across tue- square to tlie court-house, aud in a minute or two. the room was so full that many were unable to get in. Atone time, during the "ratifica tion" meeting, the highest slate of exclle- men t prevailed, resulting in a personal diffi culty bet weeu Mr. Joseph H. Dew and Mr. J. Marsh Mayes, the latter striking the loriner for alleged language used. They were separated before anything serious could lollow.
