Pleasant weather for the hist three days.
Mr. A. S. Clil-imnau, of Bolton, is in
Concert by the Blind Family at the thea
tre to-night.
A regular “land soaking” rain fell here
Saturday evening.
A, C. McNair amt W. II. Hartley have
formed a co-partnership in the law business.
Wanted, a powerful magnifying glass to
discover the scattered parts of Col. Denson.
Rev. H. F. John-on. Miss Sallie John
son and Miss Julia Wallace have returned
front the Centennial.
Rev. J. Wood bridge left for the Centen
nial last week. lie will he absent about
one montit.
By special request, Rev. J. J. Clarke wilt
preach at the Presbyterian Church next
Circuit Court convened Monday evening.
Up to this time but few eases have been
disposed of. We will mention the cases

II. II. Thompson. Hsq., ns will he seen in
to-day’s paper, anuouneasi that there will be
a re-organir.ition of the Democratic-Con

Barksdale Monday night. This people j
will never be satisfied till the M »jor comes
down and stir*. them up again.
While attending the re:1 sin re camp
meeting our Methovlist minister,Rev. J. T.
Heard,was robbed of fifty dollars in money
and an excursion ticket? Any one that
would rob a preacher is past redemption.
Col. Denson is one of the most accommo
dating gentlemen we ever knew. When ii
whs known that n<> Radical speaker would
be here Monday night to join Maj. Barks
dale in a joint discussion, the Colonel came
forward and ollered up himself a willing:
sacrifice— a martyr lor the cause of Repub
licanism. But the Colonel says he dou\
know that he will make any more Repub
lican speeches. Of course not—a man can
only be a martyr once.
Our ft h'tid Mr. 8. Kohlman, of the bouse
of A. Pfeifer, has, we are pleased to an
nounce, leased the fine brick store formerly
• •ecupied by Messn*. J. W. Martin, Jr., A
Co., where lie will, on or nb »ut September
1st, celebrate this glorious Centennial with :
a grand opening of a new and select stock
of goods to suit all tastes and purses. Mr.
ICohlman is deservedly popular, and we
predict ft r him a huge trade. He is a
lirst-class gentleman, thoroughly conscien
tious, with large expm iorce, thorough-”*!- j
ing and energetic, and naught stands, be
tween him and success We shall take,
occasion to refer to him again.
1 iv white men and ton negroes hold a ;
meeting here last Saturday fur the purpose j
« f appointing delegates t<» tin* Cnijgrep-ion- j
;»l dominating (.'onvmiiion, to bo held in j
this place next Monday. Owing to iTb
small number present they decided to ad- j
j .urn to next .Saturday. Some one sug- j
■i-nted that a notice be pul.dished in The j
calling the clans together, hut j
several said “no.” Tin: Ledger was too |
ftot — too Democratic—too much opposed1
to tln-m. T! ev concluded to request
the negro preachers to announce that the
witellers would meet next Saturday. Pro
rhiim it aloud that the buys will meet next
Saturday. Attend the show; admission
Major J. V. Sessions,
It affords us very great pleasure to say
that M;ij r J. V. Sessions publicly states he
v. ill support Tilden and Hendrieks this
till, i'hisnews will be received by his
many friends with applause. While the
Major will vote for the Democratic nomi
nees. he says he will take no active part in
politics. Two years ago Major Sessions
ran for the Senate on the Republican tick
el, was warmly supported by many Dem
ocrats. and was elected. While in the
Senate he refused to be driven by tbe par
tv, and voted for measures that lie„believed
to be for the best interest of his people
That rendered him unpopular with the
wreckers, and since that time they have
attached hut little claim to.him. In com
mon with the numerous friends of Major
.Sessions, we welcome him back to the
1 kwocralic party.
(,'rop Prospects.
The condition of the crops in this
count v may be summed up as follows:
The prospect is not as good ns it was
las: year. The corn is at least one-fourth
short, anil the early coin was damaged
considerably by drouth.
Colton is two or three weeks later than
at the same season of last year.
Peas and potatoes arc very promising
just now, and if r.odisaster happens there
will be a fair crop.
A Query.
Can any of your readers tell me where
the headquarters of the Good Templars
are? We want to get up such a society at
Wesson. II. W. H.mrv.
Wesson, Miss., July 26, 1876.
We would advise our friend to confer
with Rev. J. K. Parish, Hazlehurst, who
is, we believe, State Lecturer for the United

i'Jiloi* Itrookk&ve* hedger:—
For two weeks I have been rusticating
at this health giving au.l most delightful
resort, Brown’s Wells, Copiah county,
Miss. The. waters are as good as any in
the world; not even excepting the famous
springs of Virginia or those of Saratoga.
These Wells are situated in a beautiful
oak grove about two hundred yards from
the cottages, i’he plctaant littie walk
gives all a r-didi for a cool drink from ei
ther iron or sulphur water.
There are at present about thirty persons
here. Among the number 1 call
to mind G. Vincentau 1 lady, Xew Orleans;
Mrs. [sadore Berksoa ami three children,
Mrs. Wolfe, Mrs. Spencer, Miss Go.sic
Frink, Crystal Springs: L. G':on and lady,
Louisiana; Mr*. Dr. Purnell, Miss Lizzie

I can u it express myself in words strong
enough to convey to you a i idea ot what
we enjoy in toe way of m i-ic, both vocal
an 1 instrument'd, a.T-d and comic. First,
Mrs. j. A. M >rne, one of our sweetest
songsters, melts tile heart to tears with the
beautiful and touching song “Under the
I buses,” an i o’.hersequally as sweet. Then
our riiglitengaic, Mrs. G, Vincent, from
New Orleans, carries ns away in the sunny
glades of lovelv France, singing “(Jui Sola
Virgin !{ iso," with marvellous executio n
1 have 'heard many fine singeis, bn,
1 have never heard any thing equal to Mrs
V. ’s voice. It is graod; it is sublime. For
sacred music, Miss G. Frink carries off the
palm. She is also a fine vocalist. Mr.
W. M. Smith of Brandon, Mr. and Mrs.
L. Ohm, of 1, misiana also add very much
to our musical soiree.
As fer the table that Is set for the hoard
ers at Brown’s Wells, it is laden with all
the good things that cun be bought and
grown, and all that the hand of our most
efficient h istes- can prepa: it is sua.pt
uously and apprtiziugly set. 1 can tel!
vou it is not throw'u away, for we all have
fine appetites.
N Pure lvis richly end i! the place,

has determined, to see what man can do
He in:cn Is improving it, s.> in a few year
Mississinpi will be proud to point to
Brown’s Wells as one of the fines! and best
wi'ering placet in “the world. Mr D-i

in Ids power. He has a jsve! of a wife,

Words are inadequate to express what 1.
as well as all the boarders here, think of
‘Mis:.” Ivatie. Kvery one loves her; she is
so intelligent, so fascinating and so lovely
that her bright, beautiful face cheers all
the desponding hearts. Mr. T. Deaton,
clerk of the house, is also pleasant and at

young ladies.

A Candid Physician.
It ianot often that we find amongst the
medical faculty sufficient candor to record
any merit whatever to proprietary medi
cines, as it conflicts with their intet«*t to do
so. But below we give an exception :
Boston, January 11, 1 >74.
This certifies that I have recommended
the use of Ur. Tim’s Expectorant for dis
ease of the lungs for the past two years,
and to nit knowledge many bottles have
been used by my patients with beneficial
results, in two cases where it was thought
confirmed consumption hud taken place
the Expectorant effected a cure.

Yon have iio Excuse.
Have you any excuse for suffering with
Dyspepsia or Liver Complaint? Is there
| anv reason why you should go on from

ach, Sick Headache, Habitual Costiveness,
palpitation of the heart, heart burn, water -
brash, gnawing and burning pains at the
pit of the stomach, yellow skin, coated
tongue, and disagreeable taste in the
mouth, corning up of food after eating, low
spirits, etc.? No! It is positively your
own fault if you do. Go to F. M. Martin
Co.’s and get a bottle of “Green’s Au

vour cure is certain, but if you doubt this,
get a sample bottle for ten cents and try it.

A Flower that Changes its Color.
Botany is a division of natura! seicuce which
treats of plants, and a study Vegetable Phislology
must be thofomidation of botanical knowledge—
a study only possible by the improvements in the
microscope and In organic chemistry. As plants
are not scattered haphazard over the earth, bo
tanical geography must be studied and, with
this plant-history. It is of Medical Botany we
would speak, or of the HEPATINE PLAN L dis
covered in Southern Nubia, the Flower of winch
changes its color with every change or tne at
mosphere. The remarkable chauges of this Plant
aud Flower have been for years oui special study,
resulting in the discovery of its possession of
wonderful medical properties, the existence auu
value of which have heretofore been entirely
unknown to medical science. After much labor
and scientific investigation, we have succeeded
in extracting its peculiar medicinal pn«cjple*»
which is a specific and cure for all diseases of the
Liver, Stomach and Bowels; a permanent cure
for Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Spleen, constipation,
Jaundice, and all Bilious Complaints. V\ e can
not send a living Flower of this Plant to all who
read of llepatiue: but to all who will send
their address to Mbbkbll St cocoon, I hiladel
pbia, Pa., with a th.ee-cent stamp for return
postage, we will send Free a fac-simtle of the
Flower, that will change its color just the same
as the*real Ilepatine Flower. A .
