Saturday, January 8, 1881.' A. M. IIURNEY, Editor. BUSINESS. Tlie STANDARD is not run in Vie in tend of any one man, or set of men. but in tlie interest of all clwsees of people, and not for nor again.4 any class. It advocates progress and improvement in every branch of industry and every pursuit and calling. The subsaipt'wn price is $1 a year in advance.

The year 1881 froze out at midnight of the 31st ult. The amount of rainfall in 1880 was 9 inches and ten hundredths greater than in 1874, which was a notable one iu this respect. Gen. Garfield forgot to buckle the lines to the bits in hitching a pair of colts to his wagon, after service at the Mentor church, last Sunday, and nar rowly escaped a runaway. An old far mer gravely remarked: "General, you will have to do better than that when vou take tne reins oi government, or the political mules will get away with you," The 8th Decade of the lDth ceuiury ended with the 31st ultimo. The ccnsiH for 1880 shows the popu lation of the United States to be 50, .added from McMinnville, on tho 4ih, making 60 instead of 59 for the last ttwo .figures.

'The above is the very appropriate title'rff a new book which has appear ed among us. The author, Dr. J. II. ivellogg, stands high in Ins profession, I'ling prominently connected with the yellow fever commission in 1878. The book is written in beautiful, chaste lan guage, and ui.iversally recognized truths, on a very delicate subject, nre stated in clear, tere terms, that are easily understood by the uneducated, and appreciated by the learned. So much poisonous literature has been given to the public on the subjects that nre contained iu this volume that an antidote is demanded by all really good and scientific people. This, no doubt, accounts for its unprecedented popu larity among the higher classes. We can do no belter than to cite a very few testimonials that have been sent to the publishers after an examination of the work. Dr. D. C. Kelly says : "I do not hesitate to commend it heartily to parents or teachers." A. J. liaird, D. D., of Nashville,- says: "I have examined 'Plain Facts' very carefully. It is a remarkable book. The author, from a natural and scientific standpoint, treats many delicate and important . subjects i;i Mich a plain, yet chaste and masterly style, that the prudeut, wheth er young or old, may foresee the evil and hide himself. He boldly, yet kindly, lifts the veil and lets in a flood of light upon the multitudes, which has hitherto been enjoyed chiefly by the medical men. He exposes unmis tnkablv the lion id maelstrom into which the innocent aud ignorant' may unwarily drift and perish, and blazes out cleurlv the only roval highway to continuous purity, health and happi ness. At best, life's pathway is beset with dangers, and the strongest and wisest may stumble aud fall while walking in darkness. All parents who will carefully study this volume, and faithfully observe and early teach its contents to their sons and daughters, will be remembered gratefully wheu bud and blossom have ripened into use ful and glorious fruit. I am glad that bo high an authority as Dr. Kcllogj has producrd it, and hope its christian publishers may be able to place it be side every hearthstone. "I heartily concur in the above. J.

THE OUTLOOK FOR 1881. Everywhere in the South the busi ness outlook is cheering, aud the step of progress is quickened. The late National defeat has hnd the effect to make the South look to her self for future greatness, which is the true source after all. Permanent greatness rests upon luherent merit. The South possesses all the elements of greatness, and only needs additional development to outstrip the world in prosperity. Let our people then go to work to make their, own fortunes. We must make more at home for exporta tion, aud consume less of Importations from abroad. Political economy teaches that no people can become wealthy so long as they discriminate for one class against another. Farmers, tiaders, mechanics and manufacturers, town people and coun try people must all labor together for the common good of all. It is the part of littlemindcduess as well as con sumate folly for any one class of these persons to try to rise by pulling down another. It is the part of wisdom and magnanimity for all to pull together and go up together. Forty-Second (Soncral Assembly. The Forty Second General Assembly of Tenn., convened last Monday, in the State Capitol and after consider- able political trickery effected the fol lowing orgaization. . II. B. Ramsey, Republican, with Greenback proclivities, was elected Speaker of tha House by the vote of Jas. Warren, Grecubacker, who named and elected the Speaker, thus beating the Republican nominee, Mr. R. R. Butler, and Mr, Manson the Democrat. The Senate, Thursday, elected Geo. II. Morgan, of Jackson county, Democrat, as speaker on the !3rd ballot. Mr. I'lcKenng, Kepublican, was elected Principal Clerk of the House, Mr. Mathes, Republican, Assist. Clerk, and Mrs. Grizzard engrossing clerk. The week has been spent in partisan balloting and political engineering with but little hopes of anything else for for weeks to come.
