By the recent high water the coun
ty lias sustained a very heavy loss in
the way of bridges and levies. On
Sandy River, at Greeu's old turnpike,
three bridges were washed away aud
the levies considerably damaged. At
Fluellen's one bridge was washed
away and the levies also considerably
damaged. All of the alwve were
slough bridges, those across the main
channel being secure. . On Reedy
Creek the bridge near Keuuon's was
washed away, and also at Butler's.
On fhe Jackson road the bridge is bad
ly damaged. On Rutherford's Fork
of Obion, all of the bridges were
washed away from Terry's to Gibson
county line. At Shady G-ove the
levies are supped to be damaged to
the amount of about one thousand
dollars, mostly on fhe Gibson county
side. There are perhaps other bridges
and levies badly damaged of which
we have not leen advised, and the
cost to the county to put them iu prop
er condition again will be considerable.

DR. JOHN BULL'S
Smith's Tonic Syrup
FOR THE CERE Of
FEVER and AGUE
Or Chills, and revr.
The proprietor of this celebrated medieiao
juxtly claims forit a superiority over all reaie-
Uten fvrr onered to the public for the HAM,
CERTAIN. SPEEDY, and PERMANENT
cure of Ague and Fever, or Cbills and Fever,
whether of short or long standing, lie refers
tc the entire Western and Southern country to
bear him testimony to the trath ot the assertion
that in no care whatever will it ft.il to euro if
tbedireet onf are ntnetly followed and carried
out. In a great many cases a single doee has
been sufficient for a cure, and whole families
nave been cured by a single bottle, with a per
fect restoration ef the general health. It is,
however, prudent, and is every eare m ore cer
tain to cure, if it use ia continued in smaller
dose for a week or two after the disease has
been checked, more especially ia difficult and
long standing eases. Usually shis medicine
will not require any aid to keep the bowels ia
good order, t-hould the patient, however, re
quire a rarthnrtic medicine, after having tak
en three or fonr does of the Tonie, a tingle
dose of BCLL'S VEGETABLE FAMILY Pills
will be sufficient.
The genuine SMITH'S TONIC STRTJP mast
have DK .lollN HILL'S private stamp on each
bottle. DR JOHN BI LL rnly has the right
to manufacture and sell the original Jobs J.
Smith's Tonic Syrup, of Louisville. Ky- B-
amine well the label on each bottle. If my
urivate stain o ia not on each bottle, do aet
purchase, or you will be deceired-
