It is not probable that the Democracy of the Third Dis trict will stultify itself by exchanging him for a new ninn. As a successful, workingmemher he id second to none. A glance at the work he has done in Congress is sufficient proof of thw as sertion. For the improvement of the Tennes see river he has got appropriations to the amount of more than 1,000,000, of which he procured this year 6020,- 000; aud for the Hiwassee river 828,; ! 000. Together with Mr. McMillin he lias got an appropriation of 85,000 for the improvement of the Caney Fork, the survey of which he procured ordered last year. His bill to repeal the tax on tobacco iu the hands of the producer is a blow in the right direction toward wiping out an odious and unjust law. It has passed the committee, and is now on the House calendar. He has endeavored during his whole official career to reduce internal reve nue tax and cut down expenses in that department, and he has favored every measure looking to economy in every jmrt of the government. He procured amnesty for 700 men indicted for violation of the revenue laws, most of whom would otherwise bave gone to prison, and their families reduced to want. His hill to tax all incomes over $2,000 passed the House by 17 major ity, but failed for Want of a two-thirds vote, and is now pending before the Committee on Ways and Means. His bill to reduce the pay and med cal department of the army will save 00,000 annually, while the one not members of Congress when ab- xcept for sickness, will save i JO annually. 'was one of the Burnsido Com- fbl'ii to organize the army, aud aid- n' j perfecting the bill that would saved two or three millions of lurs annually. rIIe was also author of the bill to pro bit the levying of contributions of (jfice-holders for election purposes. lie has procured many mail routes post offices established, and the ntY facilities of oui district are better iQthey have ever been. And thus (e,iight go on ul most ltd infinitum, erig the good work he is doing. j nstauce, as in the case of the nnd the removal of the .sugar and the necessa ill le seen that he la the burdens of tho la nd place it upon the ;ileged classes who are -Mt. prpmpt to attend to all ,f(i Jgu-lus care in Con- .vtr.ty4:.&t. or r Jse- iswering all letters.

We give placo to the above in order to endorse the man and his rc-election (o Congress. A Woodbury Sensation. A few weeks ago an unmarried gen man, of the legal profession, arrived Ln Woodbury, and in a short time form ed a copartnership with one of the lead ing lawyers in that pleasant little city. Everything gave promise of a busy but undisturbed and tranquil life, un til an interruption of a rather singular character occurred, which interferrcd with existing arrangements, and excit ed niuch comment among the good peo ple of the county seat of Cannon. Last Friday a, lady arrived in Mur frcosboro awl engaging a carriage from Huberts 5t Oslin, was driven rapidly hi tho direction of Woodbury. Arriving at that place, she stopped at the hotel and made enquiries for the legal gentle man. He was absent at the moment, but soon made his appearance oj the street. Whenthe lady saw him she rushed towards him, and gave him a greeting so cordial as to quite dum fouuder the wandering Woodburians who witnessed the meeting. The gen tleman at last got the lady to his office. It is not necessary to enlarge upon the scene which ensued, (suffice it to say that within a few hours the twain were on their way to Murfreesboro. They went direct to the depot at this place, and left for Nashville on the 2:15 Sat urday morning train. They returned to Murfreesboro Monday and register ed at the hotel, but nfter giving some instructions at the express office, they went back to Nashville. Various statements explanatory of these movements have been made. One is that the lady became infatuated with the gentleman while he was attending to some business for her in Ellsworth, Kansas. The other is that by means of a newspaper advertisement, the two became correspondents, passing within the period of ten months no less than CG5 letters and 40 telegraphic messa ges. The lady is said to reside near Memphis, aud has property. It is understood that there is nothing criminal in the affair, but that it is one of the many romances in real life w hich have given rise to the apothegm, "Truth is stranger than fiction."

Draw nearer, boys, while I tell you of onu Who once was a' bright uud a dutiful son : A joy to the household and much promise (,'ave, But no-'- sadly bleeps iu a poor drunkard's grave. In childhood and youth Le was truthful aud kind, The word of his parents were borne in his l.iiml, Aud when to the right or the left he would stray, Their pardon, with tears in his eyes, he would pray. At night he would call for the stories of old, By father and mother ulternatrly told ; And then he would kueel by his dear moth er's side And pray that the Saviour with them would ubide. Ihe winter, the spring, aud the summer and fall Were seasons of pleasure, for love crowned them all Love that is food to the tried parent's heart Love that lias cost one His life to impart. Sad were their hearts when the hour drew nigh For him that they cherished to bid them good-bye, To go from his home and enter the strife With those that contend for the honors of life. "Be active, be thoughtful, be faithful and true ; Your mother and I will of course think of vou Vi'huu Aterping together we kneel at the feet Of Jesus and there our longings repent. The Bible, my son, we will give you to-day, And pray that for you it may light up the way That leads from this world to the bright land noove. Where sin rannot enter the sweet realm of love." The mother and father thus spoke to their son, Since life, with its cares,, had with him just begun ; ' And pressing him close to their bosoms they cried, "May Jesus, the Saviour, be ever your guide." The vows that he made, which were watered with tears, Dispelled all tlieir doubts and removed all their fears. Yes, sweetly they fell on the hearts' of the two, And blest them as flowers are blest by the uew. i He met with the wild and the wicked and gay, Who sought to conform him at once to their way; But thinking of lessons he learned at his home, He said to the tempter, "My feet shall not roam." "The world vou must study, 'twill do you no harm.'' He stops for a moment and views with alarm The scenes that were pictured by all but a friend, Who fiendishly promised assistanoe to lend. "The wine that I hand you is ruddy, yet mild, In strength not sufficient to hurt a mere child. Come, then, aud be social. 1 know if you drink 'Twill add to the chain of vour pleasure a linkl" He dnink, yet in drinking his conscience was pained. He thought, Hdly thought, that he should have refrained : "For mother would weep, and with sorrow would bow Her head if she knew of the first broken vow." Anon at the sweet sounding call did he go And kneel at the feet of the father of woe. Till soon it was plain that the battle was o'er, That thoughts of his mother would trouble no more. Imagine the rest, for it pains me to tell ' Of deeds that he done ere ha eutered the cell. Of hearts that were broken, ef tear that were shed, Of those that were brne to the home of the dead, UmbrsllSri Xo. 223 Main Street, Louisville, - Kj nnlT-tiin. NASHVILLE, TENN. TIIOM. t-i.

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of vegetable alteratives Stillingia, Man drake, Yellow Dock with the Iodides of Potassium and Iron, and is the moat efficacious medicine vet known for the diseases it is intended to cure. Its ingredients are so skilfully com bined, that the fu.il alterative enect ol each is assured, and while' it is so niilc as to be harmless even to children, it ii still so effectual as to purge out from th system those impurities and corruptions which develop into loathsome disease. The reputation it enjoys is derived from ita cures, aud the confidence which prominent physicians all over the coua try repose in" it, prove their experience of its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues have accumulated, and are constantly being received, and as many of these cases are publicly known, they furnish convincing evidence of the superiority o this Sar saparilla over every other alterative medicine. So generally is its superi ority to any other medicine know n, that we need do no more than to assure the public that the lest qualities it has ever jxjssessea are strictly maintainea.
