U. M. REAMS, 'MIlors- !fHimiI.f,E, TENNESSEE. Saturday, March 24, 1883. Thoughts for Farmers. We aro fcnrful that a majority of the farmers .f this country do not study ns t iirt'fully as they should the kinds of Top to rrow to yield them thegreatest profit. The Inmiiicss of farming re" jimes jvint na much careful thought and ludy nanny other biit-inef. We tip- ' iieve n largo majority of the furmors in i his conntry.and especially in Tennessee, j'lunt thoir crops without thinking . vital tho demand will be fur the same vhen produned. Not only go, but hesefi'iime kind of crops mo produced .from year to year without Htudying Vclmrjicler of the wi! or tho effects riroducod on thoir lands by constantly growing wheat and corn. The object of every business man is, r (should be, fo so study nnd conduct bis busineM as to make a living, and at ine inie time not only take care of his ' ipifal but add more to it every year. So it should be with the farmer. For ' -i number of yeaw tho prices of grain :ind cotton have been lower in propor tion to tho cost of production than almost .:tny other farm product. Why is this? If to think a little we can readily under ' -tand why it is so. The productions . of ftoltm, wheat and corn nre in excess f (ho demand, and consequently com mand loss prices in proportion to the cost of production than other products. So long as this continues we should cease to make these exhaustive crops in Ten nessee, only for home supply. We can lrow cotton, and wo can grow wheat aiid com, but at the present prices we can not compote with the South in pro ducing cotton, nor with the west in making corn and wheat. Tennessee is better adapted to the growth of fine, I at cattle, sheep, bogs, mules, poultry and the various kinds of fruits nnd vegetable. - These In ttor aro the pro-, ducts that will pay tho majority of Tennessee farmers better than cotton or Jain so long as these great staples are produced in excess of the demand. Wei must sow our lands in grasses and then we cm produce fine fat cattle nnd mule." and all other kinds of fine stock tor which there is now, and will always be, a demand. These are things for the wise and prudent farmer to think a In nit if ho would succeed well in his Our IrMi Potato Crop. To thoo who have faith to plant an Irish potato crop for profit, we desire to give a lw words of encouragement in the way of an extrnct from ft recent private letter from Mr. C. W. Callen der, a successful potato grower m Sum ncr county. Mr. Cullender says: "llie Jiouisville buyers, within the last month, have taken every bushel .llAI. ..rtl. I.I Tn.. t t. ' 1 1 . iu',i ""i ti v iiieir nanus on. Jt is !iid uhout 15 car loads have gone to i hnt city within a month from Western rfuninor county. This is the first time r'uro'gn buyers have been here in the -pring. hist summer, for 'tho first lime, thoy wore here buying 1st crop n track. I mention these items to . hhow you how the potato business is xpanding, nnd how the demand for Jnd crop U increasing. If we manage .right, Tennessee will soon control the Mcd market for the South and be a mighty factor in .spring markets, for -ed to. market gardeners of Northern ities. So I hope your efforts far 2nd erop may be very successful. If you do not come in too late, the spring (1st) erop will pay finely I think this year: but save plenty to seed for second crop. There is the place for money; plenty of time to mature, to dig, to house, to -ell and to ship. No such rush with '2nd crop as with 1st crop. Usually 2nd crop pays $1.00 per bushel for seed. 1 have scribbled n few cheering lines, 'I lio. am 1aW . .ik,wi In Hub." e must push our first crop to perfec tion ns early as possible so as to bo first in the Northern cities with our first crop. Mr. Callender thinks the 2nd crop the most profitable, and ad vises us to owe plenty of the first crop to grow seed potatoes, ns there is n growing demand for second crop both North and South for early market garden. As the potato crop advances we hope Mr. ('a)lendar may favor us frequently with information concerning the welfare of the crop. (heap Postage. On the 1st ,f October next, the two cent rate on letter postage goes into tlleet. Another acommodatioii for the pub lic will also soon come into vocue. viz- the ist-tie of postal notes fir small sums By payment at any post office a poMa' I note for the amount is to be given, which will be payable on presentation ! ut nu est office. c ' - :i r i o A fin I , v ' ti.vv. The. First General Assembly. We glean the following interesting scraps of history from the Volume, "Lite As It Is," uoticed in another column : On Monday, the 28th day of March, 1796, a littlo more than 87 years ago, the first General Assembly of Tennes see convened at Knoxville. It con tinued in session for 26 days, and passed 35 laws. - The first speaker of the Senate was James Winchester, and the first speaker of the House was James Stewart. Gen. John Sevier was inaugurated Governor, and Wm. Maclin chosen Secretary of State. We noto a difference in the salaries of members and other State officers then and at present. The members of the Assembly received $1.75 per day, and the same for every 25 miles travel, go ing and returning. The salary of the Governor was $750. At that time the circulating medium of the country was gold and silver. On the 26th of Nov. 1807 the Nash ville Bank was chartered by the Legis lature, capital $200,000. On the 20th of November, 1811, the Bank of the State of Teuliesee, at KnoxTille, was chartered, with n capital of $100,000 These banks were organized and soon went into operation. Many of the laws enacted after our State government was formed were similar to those of North Carolina. The latter State enacted a law in 1786 "providing that all persons convicted of horse Mealing, should be branded with a red-hot iron on the right cheek with the letter II, and on the left with the letter T, stand in tho pillory one hour, be publicly whipped on his bare hack with thirty-nine lnshes, and at the same time have both of his or their ears nailed to the pillory and cut off." This law was enacted in Tennessee, and we are told many persons convict ed and punished accordingly. This seemingly very cruel and inhuman law was repealed both in N. Carolina nnd Tennessee, nnd in its stead was enacted a law inflicting death by hanging upon persons guilty of horse stealing. This was the law in both North Corolina and Tennessee. In 1807, however, the legislature thought proper to re- peal this severe penalty, and substituted iu its stead, punishment by whipping, branding in the hand, standing in the pillory and imprisonment. This law remained in force until 1829, when tho peniteutiary system was adopted. Tax Keductions. stamp tax censes on hank checks, drafts orders, vouchers, and the tax on matches, medicines, perfumes, etc. The taxes on tobacco and dealing there in nre also greatly reduced. gonimmiicitfians. From Pleasant Cove. To the Standard. Farmers in this part of the moral vineyard have been making good use of the fair weather for two weeks past. Wheat and oats have put on a new ap pearance since the rain last Monday. Some of our neighbors are preparing to plant corn. The people iu the (Jove are rejoicing over the prospect of n railroad from Rowland through the Cove to the coal mines on Cumberland Mountain. Success to the Standard. March 21. Neighbor.

Since tho fair weather bogan farmers are busily engaged on their farm, i .... mating nay while the sun slimes. A good nrea has boon sown in oats. Our wheat crop looks rather puny, but since the last rain is somewhat im proved. An average crop of corn will probably be planted. Several farmers are preparing to plant more Irish pota toes than usual. There is but little talk of planting cotton this season. Milch cows and work bands seem to be scarce, the supply not being equal to the demand.

More anon. , C. Bone Cave, March 20, '83. From Hock Island. To the Standard. Times are flourishing at Rock Island. We aro having plenty of rain and snow. Farmers are making active preparations for their various crops. A great many farmers are putting in large crops of Irish potatoes. Our merchants are having a good trade this week. Mr. A. F. Humble has recently erected a large two-story dwelliug house near the Great Falls of the Caney Fork, which he will complete this week. Mr. Hum ble is an industrious, persevering man, and a good neighbor. D. C. Lnne has declared himself a candidate for matrimony, and was mak ing his way toward the Falls. Mr. Jas. T. Gribble has been off on a business trip near Rowland, attend ing to his mother's estate. He returned Tuesday. ' W. A. M. Rock Island, March 22d. This correspondent sends two new subscribers with his letter, for which we return thanks. Newsy letters are always acceptable, -and especially when accompanied by new subscribers. Eds. . From Snmmitville. To the Standard. Farmers are making bit little prog ress with their work on account of the backward weather. All, however, seem to wtTrk with a will when the weather permit. Oat sowing in, about over, and many farmers have their corn ground nearly ready for planting. The raising of Irish potatoes i8 com manding a great deal of attention here this spring, nnd we meet persons almost daily asking for seed potatoes. Farming does not command the at tention here that its importance do mahds, owing to the tic - and lumber business, which has been very exten sive in the past. The railroad company has quit taking ties for a time, we un derstand, and quite a number of men who depended on that for a support will have to turn their attention to the cultivation of the soil, which will, we think, be an advantage to the commu nity. Other business is generally good. Messrs. Harrison A Miles are shipping lime extensively. Mr. II. is preparing to burn a kiln. 0 There is not much to note in the way of improvement. Mr. R. B. Hamilton his yard and garden. Rumor says we are to have a new store house this sum mer. We expect to hear of Mr. Simp son building an addition to his hoiife soon, owing ty circumstances which we will relate further on. There have been two new arrivals at this place in the last two weeks. Miss Alice, the seventh successive daughter, has made her appearance at the resi dence of J . B. bhrader, Esq. The other was at the residence of Mr. Simpson. It's a boy, and bears the name of John David. By the wny, there is a little joke on Mr. S. going the rounds just now. It seems thnt hi, being so elated over the arrival of John David, wished to inform his mother as soon aB possible of the happy event. He carried the. news with such speed that when he rapped at her door he was almost exhausted. To his mother's anxions inquiry, "Why, what the mat ter. Joe?" he replied in gnping tones, "We've got a son at our house I" There was a Sunday-school organized here last Sunday, Mr. R. B. Hamilton superintendent. We wish it ahuudant success, as a good Sunday schod is an important factor in building up the morals of auy community. It is rumored that Mr. R. B. Hamil ton will have charge of our school the coming session, lie is reported na a good teacher. Anon. Summitville, March 21. Daylight. . To the Standard. There was a public debate at Bald Knob last Friday night, in which the following subject was discussed : "Re solved, Tlmt females ought to be edu cated equal to males." Affirmative, Oliver Towles and E. W. Brown; neg ative, J. S. Oliver and W. H. Ham mer. Mr. Oliver Towles opened tho discussion in a very appropriate man ner. He argued that the female, in point of talent, was equal to the male, and as a ruler and instructor, her rec ord was as bright as that of the male. He was fallowed by Mr. Oliver, who contended that the female lieing the "weaker vessel" physically, was not capable of receiving as great an educa tion as the male, and that God's order had ever been to place man at the head of affairs. Mr. Brown insisted that the female is a better moral teach er than tho male, and that to her is intrusted to a great extent the train- ing of the youths of our country, there fore she should have a g0,xl education. Me Tr.,m,, i .t,. I ; vw. mat ciutai uu wm both I ,.rptLnl n1 .:..ni that it would be very injurious to the female to practice some branches of education. After a discussion of about three hours and a half the question was sub mitted to tho committee, which retired and after several minutes rendered a decision in favor of the affirmative. Last Thursday evening at seven o'clock, Mr. Jas. Allen, late of Texas, was married to Miss Rebecca New by, Elder J. K. P. Whitlock officiating. We wish Jim and his fair bride all tne happiness that is to be found in mar ried life. Jim. Daylight, March 20, 1883. Farmers iif Georgia are setting out large groves of persimmon trees to pro duce fool for hogs.- In Moore county a great deal of young clover was damaged by the lute cold snap. The East Tennessee farmer's conven tion will meet iu Knoxville, Tuesday May 22. Numbers of valuable sheep have been killed lately in Sumner by worth less curs. North Corolina potatoes find a ready market in Cleveland and other towns in East Tennessee. Not to be outdone, Atlanta has start ed an oleomargarine factory with a capital of $500,000 which " promises to Income one of the most extensive en terprises in the South. Partridges and Pheasants. New York Herald: The steamer Hohenstauffen, of the Bremen line, which arived herein Thursday, had on board a large shipment of Engiish par tridges and pheasants, consigned to Messrs. Charles Reiche & Brother.' The birds are for the stocking of. Mr. Pierre Lorillard's large game preserve at Jobstown, N. J. There were also several pairs of golden and silver pheas ants, which will not be turned out, but kept in the pheasant house. Last week Mr. Lorillard procurred 100 pin nated grouse (prairie chickens) from Indian Territory for stocking the same farm. Tho Great Floods of 1883. The present year vill bo memorable as the witness of gome of the most re markable floods of moderu times. For weeks past the principal river regions both' of Europe arid the United States have been the scene of unparalleled disaster, Werptyil lumo iti" . towns, Antf hundreds of villages have been inundated, cattle, buildings, and products, the accumulations of years of industrious toil, have been swept away, many lives lost, thousands of people rendered honudess and reduced to pov erty. Financially tho losses are to bo measured by millions of dollors. In this country the valleys of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, with many of their tributaries, have been converted into vast inland lakes; tho ancient time, when the Father of Waters, from the Gulf of Mexico to the mouth of the Ohio, had an average width of fiftv miles, seems almost to have returned. We might fill many columns with the details of extraordinary occurrences pertaining to the present floods; but the following, as a general example, must suffice: "Memphis, Tenn., March 7, 18S3: The nearest point of land toTip tonville, Tenn., is ten miles distant. The town is in the midst of a great lake. Two-thirds of the country in which it is situated is deeply flooded,- nnd nearly every farmer in the overflowed district has lost his corn, hogs, and cot ton . Fences have been swept away as well as outhouses and many dwel lings. Hardly a farmhouse has been left along Reelfoot Lake, which is now rushing like a torrent through Obion and Deer Rivers nnd into the Mississippi. SETTLED IJEY0X1) A DOUBT.
