U. M. REAMS. iM,twr-. McXINMIIiLR, TENNESSEE. .Saturday, April 14,1883. (Sow IWe lins not yet appointed the K. K. Commission. The World thinks our (listinguihlied fellow-citizen, Col. John II. Suvnge,"or his more youthful compeer, Hon. Frank Wilson," will rccoive tho appointment for Middle Tennessee. We wait the pleasure of the Governor, trusting he will do all things well, especially in this appoint ment. Chk'ugc and New York Connected , by Telephone. Telephonic communielion has heen successfully established between Chi" gngo and New York city, a distance of 1000 miles. So perfect is the com munication that an articlo read from the Times in Chicago was taken down in short hand by a reporter of the New -r ,i. rr line. The sweet melody of songs, sung in New York, are said to have lost none of their sweetness iu a journey of 1000 miles!ver the hills and valleys, and through the forests and mountains, intervening 'between the two great cities of tho East and the West. They are heard distinctly from the one to the other. We may truly say, this is an age af progress ; especially in the com uiuniuition of sound and thought from city to city, and continent to continent Koads and Kiidjes. The Chairman of the County Court was empowered to have tho county tiriaminrti u-itrkorl on thn uti-pota. Tin" tax levied by the court was 20 cents ! ... .... for county. 20 for biidgcft, 20 for schools and 10 for roads. Jaitr Herald. We- are glad to see a spirit of true pubhV enterprise prevailing in our sister eounty of Marion. That county purposes to build iron bridges across Big Sequachpe and Little Soquatcnee rivers. They also purpose to work their county prisoners on tho streets and thus make tbem pay for their food. If this plan was adopted in all the counties in the State, we would not only have better streets and roads, but fewer prisoners in the county jails. A large percentage of our jail birds go there besause they do not like to work for nn tamest living. Work them froely and we will have fewer of them, ami mm, mj mi v .ipm.iu of their keep. "Let them earn their bread by tho sweat of their brow." Marion has not only levied a school tax double that of Warren, but has levied a tax of 20c for bridge purposes and solpcted commissioners to locate iron bridges across their principal river. This is a good step in the right direction, and is very commendable in Marion County Court; a good example for other counties, in which good roads and bridges are so much needed. We have a County Court composed of good men. They are prudent, and safe, and very careful of the public treasury e are glad they are; but when we consider the importance of Warren an agricultural and Manufacturing eounty, situated as it is, nearly in the center of the State, and compare the - condition of our public roads with those of our sister counties, we are of the opinion that our County Court is a little too cautious and has not enough of public enterprise for the good of the county. We certainly do feel as much interest in the prosperity of this eounty and its citizens as any one, and are as much opposed to unnecessary taxation; but when we do know that it is to the interest of our entire people to have good roads and bridges, and that we can not get them except by making them, it does seem proper to begin the work. Every man knows something of the value and importance of good roads ; at least most of us know the inconvenience of not having them. The farmers are, or should be, most interested, as they have greater need of them, over which they haul their surplus products to market. We use or travel over our county roads but little, still we are ready and willing to he taxed to make roads and bridges for the conveniences of others, and the general good of all. Let the question be agitated and freely talked about among the people sufficient to justify the County Court to take proper steps at its July term to begin work. Think of it! not a public bridge, or a mile of turnpike road in Warren county! Nashville Banner: Commissioner McWhirter received a letter this morn ing from Thomas Kennedy, of Phila delphia, London correspondent, repre senting an English syndicate, in which he desires to purchase 500,000 acres of land in Tennessee, suitable as nil emi , grant settlement. In all life's doings there are circuit ous paths; and nine times out of ten, when a man seems to be doing one thing, he is doing another. onmmhiit'wns. From Cisco, Texas. To tliu Standard. Cisco, Texas, April 2. I left your town 26th of March, arrived at Nash ville 11:15 a. in., and in tho afternoon visited the Capitol to see tho "assem bled wisdom of tho State," and found our Representative and Senator at their posts of duty. We also had tho pleas ure of meeting some old friends there with whom we served in the sessions of 1853 and 1855-G. Overall, from De lvalb, is the only member who was there in 1853-4, and Butler, liooney and Fielder are the only members of the present House who were there in 1 85.5-6. Senators Thompson and Col quit, of tho present Senate, were mem bers of the House then, i hero is no one in the Senate with whom we served during the memorable sessions of 1859 and 18UU, and we did not recognize anv oue iu the House who was there then. Cm Tuesday we were joined by L. B. Waters, J. R Waters and Finley I'ennobaker. en route for the Lone "Bfllf" ftiUie, tltuT JCtl Clio runm- -o the West at 7 p. m., arrived at Mem phis at 5 o'clock a. m., where we had to remain until 5 o'clock next morning. when the train was ferried across the Mississippi onto the Memphis & Little Hock railroad, which we found in bail condition, having been covered with water by the recent overflow for 35 or 40 miles. For 8 or 10 miles the over flow lud rushed over the road with such force as to wash the entire track rn ils and cross ties, entirely off the em bankment and turn it upside down That part of the road had been newly repaired, and ours was the first passen ger train over it since the water had subsided. When out about 25 miles from Mempnis the road bed gave way "d we had a run off which delayed us I l. i 1 !.... ..!i.t a f il about 4 hours, but without further damage. The whole distance, almost Ironv Memphis to St. Francis river, about 40 miles, U still under water, but the track is tree or four feet above tho water at this time, being built on an embankment. If one half of the timber and water between the Mississippi and St. Francis rivers, in Arkansas, was distributed on the prairies of lexas both sections would be materially benefitted, for there is too much of both in the former place and not enough in the latter. After leaving the overflowed district at Madison we find hills, timber and swamps along the route, with occas- sionally a good farming section until you reach uoouwnv about &0 miles from Memphis, where extensive prai ries commence and extend o:i for 10 or 12 miles. On the prairie could be seen small herds of cattle grazing here and a pine forest for several miles, which is the only pino of any consequence be tweeu Memphis and Little Rock. Pass ing beyond the pine, we find timber and prairie alternating along the route to the Arkansas river, in the valley of which there are 6ome fine farms, with corn and cotton planted in many places. We arrived at Little Rock behind time on account of the run off, and there our friends Waters and Pcnneba ker gave us the slip and I have not heard of them since, although Waters had a ticket for this placo. We left Little Rock about 8 at night and ar rived at Texaikana for dinner, and took the northern route by way of Sherman, and were delayed again by the burning of a tresslc of a bridge, which had caught firo from a burning prairie, wennu this letter growing too long even with the meager descrip tions given and will havo to skip oyer some very fine country, and give you a description some" other time:." We ar rived here at 4 o'clock in the morning, and stopped at the Haws House, where we have good fare, nice beds and prop er attention. We will remain here and around for several days. Cisco is nearly as large as McMinnville, and is not two years old. It has been cold since 1 have been here, and vegetation is backward. This place is almut 1G50 feet above the sea level, which accounts for the temperature. More anon. Ed. J. Woon. From Viola. To the Standard. V101.A, April 10. Merchants and farmers quiet this week. So much rain lately has stopped business. Messrs Ramsey and Winton stand at the head of the line in the cattle trade. They lately sold about 90 head of cat tle to Mr. Fields, of Bedford county. I suppose they made some money, as they generally sell that way. They also have the finest field of wheat in the State. Men from other places rep resent it that way. The field contains 97 acres. Miss Mary Dodd returned from your town last Saturday to see the old folks at home. We are sorry to announce the death of Mr. Eli Jones, who died at his home near Viola last Saturday after but a few days illness, ajjed about G5 years. Brother Jones was a strict member of the church and a useful roan in his community, lie left a nice family to sadly mi.ss his presence. His funeral was attended by a lanre number of friends. He was buried at Antioch church. Virrnu. From Mountain Crock. To the Standard. MorNTAiN Creek, April 11. We were visited this evening by the sever est hail storm we have ever seen. The stones were of various sizes, and many of them as large as hen eggs. There has been some pretty days in the laot two weeks, which the farmers seut iu preparing ground for corn. Wheat and oat fields are looking green and gardens are furnishing some vege tables. Wm. Harden was dangerously beat en by Riley Parish and family, on the 8th inst. The parties are now in the Smithvillo jail. , IYof. Evans has a largo school at Bluff Spiings, which is moving along siujothly. T. J. P. From Cane IMdgc. To tho Standard. Cane Riduk, April 10. The pro tracted wet weather has thrown far mers behind with their work. Very few have planted corn. Wheat has commenced to show itself considerably since tho late warm rains. Rev. P. Moore has recently moved his stock of goods from this place, and with a new supply opened up at Irving College. Mr. Geo. Parks is attending to the business. The wiiter had the pleasure last Sun day of seeing the Great Falls of the Caney Fork, where Asa Faulkner is preparing to erect a cotton factory. Mr. Faulkner has built a strong and duroblobridge over Collin's river, and a good road lfom"ltrjcirisTarra,icr-- iTie Falls.

Have had a great deal of rain, and our farmers are a little discouraged. Some few have planted corn. Oats are looking well, and wheat is more encouraging. Irish potatoes are coming up. Garden veg etables look well. Some sickness in this section. Miss Bird Rains, who has been quite sick, is up again. Mr3. Hetty is very low; no hope for her recovery. Wm. Hall met with a severe accident on the 4th inst., getting his lower jaw broke. He is doing very well. Several other cases of sickness in the community, and our Doctor, M. b. Brewer, is busy. Our clever merchant, D. C. Smartt, is doing a fine business. He is at his post early and late. Rev. G. W. Gilbert will preach in Trousdale tho 4th Sabbath in this month at 3 o'clock p. m.

Conclusion of a Lecture on Psychology de- livered at Ho nurd Female College, 1. We are conscious of thinking. u nemcr the thotignts' IM? IfUo or faTse we are conscious of this mental opera tion. This is tho first fact of knowl edge. We know we think, because consciousness testifies to this operation, and its testimony cannot be questioned. 2. At this juncture reason adds its voice to consciousness and declares that thinking, whether the thoughts bo real or fictitious, true or false, implies thinker. The existence of the thinker is, therefore, an unquestioned fact of knowledge proclaimed by reason and attested by consciousness, Hence we know the operations of mind by consciousness and the existence of mind, the thinker, by consciousness niwi reason, mis Knowledge is pri niary, ultimate and certain. On it al other knowledge rests as its foundation. .beginning tnus to Know we can know: 1. The existence of mind and its op- perations by consciousness. 2. The external world by being con scions of its perception 3. The existence of space, succession ot time, personal identity, infinity, cas ualty, and substance by being conscious of their intuition, which is primary and immediate knowledge, Consciousness is therefore the root cf all our knowledge, This is a brief statement of how we know that we know anything.

Church, South in August, 1871, died Feb. 18, 1883 ilortie ciia not live an the time up to her profession and christian princi pies, but was unfortunately induced to seek happiness in tbe vain amusements of this life. In consequence of which dark and distressing clouds of doubt for a time hung heavily over her mora! pathway. But for some time before her death, she had been seeking closer communion with her heavenly Father and by faith in his forgiving mercy, was enabled to realize the withdrawal of the cloud, and the sunshine of His reconciled countenance, enabling her to say, "I am not afraid to die." Al though her death was sudden, we be lieve she was ready. A. L. Comer Surely our friend and brother James is greatly bereaved. First his dear wife, then his faithful friend, Bro.
