Our merchants are showing tUblr enter

Superintendent Geddes, oueof t lie best rail

The Marshall Gazette concludes an able ar
ticle with these words: "Our people long
ago determined to have a railroad. Colum
bia was the first ami only friend proposing
to help us. VVf have now got it started. Let
not theso great oeihtdo', lug corporations
crush it out."
The Directors of the Duck Liver , alley
Railroad have concluded to submit a prop
osition to tho people of Marshall county to
vote S75nw to complete lliaroad to Fayette
Vllie. This is correct, for no onu eyer sup-pj-ncd
t lie sopIe of Marshall would iia cou
tent wit auivrearm of load. To have the

otherwise would be to commit saicide. Co
lumbia ha- assisted Marshall Couuty to get
a railroad to her couutyssite, aud our peo
ple are now waiting to see what Marshall
will do tor herself. If she completes the
road to Fayettevillo or some point east or
Lewisburg. Columbia and Maury will carry
the line westward to Johusouv ille or C lif-

If Marshall voles to carry ou the good work

THE TUOMABON CASE
has caused an unusual amount of excite
ment In this neighborhood and all over the
A.n, .1 1, . . . r . ... -
tence. It is natural that the immediate
friends -and relative of .Yt. Jackson, - who
was foully murdered M. eold biod, tdiould
be incensed at Thomaaou 'a escapv from the
gallows; nor Is it unreasonable that a feeling
Ol dissatisfaction should exist in the public
Uilud. All the bettor sympathies of oar
people are aroused lu behalf of the sorrow
ing family, and no satisfactory reason has
yet been offered for a change of the opinion
of the four Supreme Judges. It is singular
that they should have been no long in arriv
ing at tho conclusion Of the'' propriety of
commuting Thomason's sentence, and the
f eueral impression is, that iu recommeud-
g executive clemency in this case, they
have committed a grievous blunder. But
when it is remembered that tho prisoner
was poor, -without money or influential
family connections, that there was no nope
ol pecuniary reward or- influence- h-, elec
tions, a calm aud passionate.: verdict, after
the excitement has passed away, must be,
that they acted in the premises, from a con
scientious sense of their duties and obliga
tions. In the case of Gov. Porter, tne almost
universal opinion seems to be, that lie
could not, uuder the influences brought to
bear on him, have taken any other course
than that which he pursued. If he had
turned a deaf ear to the appeal made to him
bv the Supreme Judges and Attorney Geu
eral, and others, there would have been
raised agaiust him, all over the laud, such a
howl of indignation, as no man ever had to
bear, except Andrew Johnson, in the Sur
ratt case. The responsibility of this wrong
if wrong it be rests upon the Supreme
Judges and not upou Gov. Porter; and such,
we are glad to know, is the opinion of a
large majority of our people, lui prison
meat for life, at hard labor, is not greatly
nreferatile to death. To be confined by bars
and bolls to the walls of a prison; lo bs suut
un in a cell wnen not at woik, leu mere 10

It being the occasion of the nuptials ot Mr
J. W. Howard and Miss Mary Frierson. The
street front of the residence was crowded at
an eaxly hour and it seemed as it might have
been raining humanity, horses, buggies and
cai-riages;and from lheiace-0 raped windows
of the cliarming mansion came the swell of
voices, fragrance of rare flowers, the glint of
gems.brlght lights,warmth and gorgeoustiess
The house was crowded with the crema de U
creme of Maury county society, friends ano
relatives of the bride and groom. After
waiting for a reasonable length of time, the
bridal party, in gorgeous array took their
posiiiou in the back parlor. Four brides
maids clad in lovely white tarlatan, with
pure white flounces of the finest mesh and
silk bodies. The groomsmen, wore con veu
tioual black suits lavender kid gloves and
cravat. The bride was elegantly attired in
a magnificent tarlatan en train, satin bodice
and tulle veil, exquisitely arrayed with
orange blossoms, which fell in graceful folds
over a lorui, wuicu wouiu nave rivaieu v e
nus, in its beauty ,and a face, that was loveli
ness In its purity and happiness. She wore
an exquisite necklace and diamond jewels,
that seemed imbued with restless lite, as if
some living spirit was imprisoned in their
dazzling legions of rainbow facets, and we
wondered, as we looked upon the peerless
beauties, what Clairvoyant spell may they
not cast over the soul of the fortunate pos
sessor hereafter of so much beauty, and cer
tainly containing the dumb-flasn ot the
spirit-gold. The hauuso.iie young groom,
wore a very stylish suit of glossy broad -cloth
with white kid gloves and cravat, that set
off bis splendid figure very handsomely.

noise, walked towards the front door, which
frightened the robbers away. Tho burglars
seem to be professional gentlemen, of a tierce
lusinciucerty to danger and a total reckless
ness of personal hazard, as they certainly
knew, that there was a man, sleeping in
this store. On the night before Mr. Winter
lch.who has a tannery just lu the edge of

dollars worth of leather sUilen. A faithful

they should forget it immediately, by keep

is too much executive clemency in Nash

Paisley, and we only regretted, that, we
were noi all car, Hint ve mlhi deri ve more
of the pleasurable sensation from tills ex
quisite little instrument. In his artistic per
lortnauoe, his soul as It were, seemed to be
lost in music, and the player makes himself
felt and we got an entirely uew idea of its
!ower. iu music we must have a soulstring
to awaken the sym pat lues of the heart. We
often bear the epresion "heart string," it
is full of meaning, Shakspeare says:
"The man that has no music in himself,
Nor, is not moved bi the concord of sweet
sou n Is;
Is tit for treason, stiatagem and spoils.
The motion of hUkPirits are dull at, night,
Aud hisatl'ections, dark as Erebus,
Let uo such man be trusted."
WtiHt a beautiful sentiment, and how true.
In the magnificent aud artistic manipula
lation of the violin and guitar, Messrs Rick

hope to hear them often.

several miles southeast of this, near the line
of the DeGranenreid hurricane, mai-y trees
were prostrated by the storm. The farmers
at present are working with a will ,-nd ex

crops of corn and cotton.. The wheat, crops
are growing finely but in mauy instances
there is not sufficiency of stand to admit a
full crop if all other circumstances should
prove favorable. Scarcely any peach trees
have had a blossom this season and it lias
been found upon examination that the
brandies and barks of the trees' were killed
by the winter freezes.

Vol'K Al .NI JANE,
Letter from LewlaburK.
To the Editor cf tuIiei-aUl and Mail:
I understand that one of your townsmen
has iutiinated iu a mild though positive
manner, that the "Lewisburg Letters" from
the humble, unassuming pen of "Romulus
and Remus," are "loo thin;" and further,
uml ii ne could not get up a potter thing
Ibati that, wby ho would cause his lips to
be sealed never to-be loosed again, till the
last day, when, for writing such letters, if
nothing more, he would beg the rocks and
mountains to hide him from the lace
of Him who gave such a tongue.
Now, this is a beautiful speech for a
man to give uitc-rance to vv io lives in a
Christian laud, and more especially, when
it refers to oue of whom he knows so little.
lu our loiters we nave not attempted, nor
even t hought of attempting, a history of
Lewisburg, Marshall couuty, or of any Indi
vidual citi.ou oi onr couuiy; nor nave we
contemplated a history of the United States.
If we had begun some such work and bad
most signally lulled, then, Mr. Sariawticus,
your u iikind thrust would have been iu or
der. o, sir, we have not undertaken any
ol these I hiugs, nor havo we cast tiro-brands
iu the luces of those who sit highest in our
Slate. Our words havo been peaceful; we
have oll'euded uo one; we have deserved no
such abuse at your hands, while you have
thrown open the dotirs of your heart and
huve al.owed one of those thribble-tougued,
fire-eating demons of Dante's Inferno to en
ter aud goad you to desperation. But your
darts have been cast against a tougher sub
stance thau perhaps you hud imagined
they have not even made a scratch. But,
perhaps, you would like to show us What
sort of a letter -you. write. Well, "that's
agreeable;" we aro always willing to learn,
no matter who the teacher is. The Hta-
Ai.n is not too much crowded i ues to re
ceive such an epistle as yours would be.
Should it, however, uot have room, we will
divide time with you. We are not selfish,
neither are we afraid, nor will wo be if you
will not come after us with a teleu.-a.iiii
pole and a torcii. We will therefore with
hold our letter next week, aud hope to take
