Gov. Taylor delivered a lecture at the closing exercises of a sqhool in Tullahoma last Friday night. An effort is being made to reorgan ize Nashville's once famous Military Company, the Porter Rifles. The National Democratic Conven tion will meet at St. Louis next Tues day. All the railroads will sell tick ets at one fare for the round trip.

A company has been chartered to build and operate an independent telegraph line along the line of the Tennessee Midland Railroad. Rev. Lyman Aubott, D. I)., has accepted the permanent pastorate of Plymouth' Church. New York. Reecher's long vacant pulpit. Robert B. Taylor, a popular conductor on the Nashville & Chat tanooga Railroad, died at his home in Tullahoma on Thursday morning of last week. A disastrous storm swept through portions of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania last Monday afternoon, destroying much property, and killed several persons. . The Presbyterian General Assem bly which was in session at Rich mond, adjourned last Monday night. Chattanooga was chosen as the next place of meeting and the third Thurs day in May as the time. The Nashville Democrat has been permanently enlarged by" the ad dition of one ' column to each page We are glad to note this evidence of an increasing patronage on the part ".. of our . most esteemed daily visitor. It will only take three more weeks to determine whether Mr. Blaine will accept the nomination or not. The National Republican Convention will meet in Chicago on the 19th inst., and Mr. Blaine doubtless already has his acceptance drafted.ready to cable. The Nashville Democrat seems very much interested in a Vice Pres idential boom for Allen G. Thurman. A better man could not be found for the second place on the ticket with Cleveland, his advanced years being the only unfavorable feature in his case. The unaminity with which the newspapers are falling into line for Taylor is very encouraging. The bickerings and petty jealousies are fast disappearing from the surface, and many of the papers are talking about the old time thirty thousand majority. Lots of thincrs are accom plished iust by talking about them The trial of Joseph R. Banks for the murder of John J. Littleton be gan in the criminal court at Nash ville Monday morning. After the selection of a jury, the examination of witnesses was postponed till Thurs day. A very formidable array of legal talent is engaged on either side. about twenty lawyers in all. The case will furnish a sensation for the Nashville twiners for, several week X . 1 to come, and there will . likely, be a lot "of "iIN'-'astiiiir' details!.' which nifclit lo TV kept 'iiU of public prints. ,.TnE Mills tariff, bill has been so loaded down with amendments by the ways and. means committee as to be hardly recognizable by. its friends. Congress will begin the consideration of the bill by paragraphs next week. All the buildings of the Terry Stove Works at South Pittsburg, ex cept the foundry, were destroyed by fire last Saturday night, together with the store of Tayne & Co. The loss ou the Stove Works is estimated at $200,000, nearly covered by insur ance. Two hundred and fifty hands were thrown out of employment. ,It will bo rebuilt at once. , The Democratic State Convention of Pennsylvania in session last week elected ' Cleveland delegates to St. Louis, endorsed Cleveland's message and the Mills tariff bill before it had been smothered with amendments, and instructed their representatives in Congress to give the bill their hearty and unqualified support. This was the kind of news from home that Mr. Randall didn't want to hear. Mr. Blaine has written another letter, from Paris, to Hon. Whiteldw Reid, editor of the New York Trib une, in which he says that he could not accept the nomination without doing so and so, but he does not say emphatically and unqualifiedly that hcwillnotacceptit. Notwithstanding all of this there will be no over either his nomination or accep tance. The Centennial Exposition of the Ohio Valley and the Central States which opens at Cincinnati July 4th and continues until Oct. 27th, prom ises to be one of the most extensive and interesting expositions, ever held in this country.

The State Democratic Executive Committee met in the Maxwell House at Nashville last Monday and organized by electing lion. Thos. L. Williams ofKnoxville, as Chairman for the next two years, and J. D. Mc Lin, of Nashville, Secretary. The new Chairman is well qualified to discharge the duties of that position, being an eloquent and logical speak er, well posted on state and national issues, and possessed of great personal magnetism. He will render the party efficient service in the opening cam paign. The Committee will meet again at Nashville on the 19th of June, to definitely determine upon plans for the compaign. WASHINGTON. Democratic Talk Demand for Car lisle's SpeechThe Agricultural Department, Etc., Etc. Washington, May 28, 1888 St. Louis is the Mecca toward which the eyes of all good democrats are now turning. Next week when the democratic convention meets there, it will only have to ratify the choice of the party, long since made, of a candidate for the presidency; to formally accept and adopt the plat form already mapped out by Mr. Cleveland's last annual message to Congress, and to select a candidate for Vice President, on the ticket with Mr. Cleveland. The only thing about the whole programe about which there is even the slightest particle of doubt, is the last, and it is more than probable tnat Air. Cleveland will signify his preference for a running mate before the conven tion meets, thus removing all doubt, for the convention will take pleasure in nominating the man for whom he expresses a preference, and it is only right that they should, for has he not proven himself the savior of the democratic party ? Aye, and more. He has restored the party to its old time Andrew Jackson aggressiveness; for the first time in many years the party starts a presidential campaign by a brilliant charge on the enemy's picket line, which has been forced in with such a rush that the main army have been compelled to beat a retreat, which has so far been a very orderly one, but ere the ides of November it will have be come a rout. All this, has been brought about by one courageous in dividual, his name is Grover Cleve land. Ho has given the country a clean, honest adniinstration, aud the only reason that. lie has not accom plished more, is that he has been hampered by , a republican Senate, but this time it is to bo a clean sweep, and from the 4th of March,:. 188!), the whole government, lii nll its vano:w branches, will, be ado'l'iwl, by I d wra' .ami ' U- feU-Ti tin whole country, not of a small fraction of it. The-demand for Mr; Carlisle's tariff speech is unprecendented. Al ready 500,000 copies have been order ed, and every mail brings new orders. This is as it should be 5 it would bo a good thing for the democratic party and the career of revenue, reform , if that speech could be read by every voter in the United States. -, . . , The.llouse is making good progress with the regular appropriation bills, having already passed several of them. . The bill creating a department of labor has been passed by,, both Houses, and only lacks the signature of the President to become a law. The President has approved the act authorizing him to arrange a con ference between the United States and the republics of Mexico, Central and South America, Hayti, and San Domingo, and the Empire oi Brazil. It is expected that this country will derive much good in the shape of in creased commerce, from this con ference. . , , The) President will review the memorial day processions in New York and Brooklin. . The House judiciary committee have favorably reported the Inter national Copyright bill, recently passed by the Senate. ' The bill establishing a Department of Agriculture which has already been passed by the House, has been favorably reported to the Senate, and is certain to pass that body at an early day ; then the Commissioner of Agriculture will become a member of the Cabinet. Mr. Fuller's nomination is still hung up by the republicans in the Senate. The Senate finance committeee re ported adversely the House bill to issue paper fractional currency, but in lieu thereof they reported a bill re ducing the fee for postal notes under one dollar to one cent. Gen. Sheridan has been dangerous- ly ill ; he is now somewhat better, though the danger is by no means past. Valvular disease of the heart is his complaint. The laying of the comer stone of the new Catholic University in this city Thursday was an event of great importance. The impressive cere monies were conducted by Cardianal Gibbons, assisted by about thirty bishops, and over two hundred priests. The President and his cabinet were present. The democratic caucus of the House had a long session Saturday night, devoted to the consideration of the report of the democratic mem bers of the ways and means com mittee upon the proposed amend ments to the Mills tariff bill. Quite a number 01 minor amendments were agreed to. There is to be another caucus held tonight, when the subject will be finished up. Evolution and Organic Union. Baltimore, Md., May 20. The general assembly of the Southern Presbyterian Church resumed its meeting this morning, and adopted a minute to go on record as the action of the assembly in the Woodrow case. The minute stated that in the judgment of the assembly Adam's body was directly fashioned by God of dust of the ground without any natural animal parentage of any kind. He had revealed the fact, but not the mode. The church did not propose to handle or conclude any questions of science, but must see that such questions are not thrust upon her. The committee that had under its consideration the question of or ganic union made an adverse report recommending that lurther consider ation of the subject be discontinued as an obstacle in its way had not been removed. It was recommended however, to combine with the north em assembly in the appointment of a committee to cooperate in the work of the church. Decrease in Crops.

Last Tuesday night the young peo ple of our village and community had a pound supper at Mr. Bouldin's, after which they "tipped the light fantastic toe" till the hours grew ex ceedingly small.

Nothing was left undone by the kind host and hostess that would add to the comfort and entertainment of the guests. uapt. w. u. letter snowed your correspondent some of the largest radishes we have ever seen. One measured 14 inches in circumference and 15 inches in length. Hon. II. L. W. Hill is on the "streets" today looking as hale and "hearty" as a boy of sixteen. Dr. W. C. Barnes, who has been quite sick for several days, is again able to attend to the wants of his pa tients. Many whose occupations are of a sedentary character, often have the feeling of being literally worn out, and are reminded very forcibly of declining years, when if they knew what ailed them, they would find all their troubles arose from the inaction of their kidnevs or liver. If thev would at such times take Dr. J. It. McLean's Liver and Kidney Balm would again feel the vigor am strength of maturity. For , sale by W. 11. Fleming. ANNOUNCEMENTS. FOR TRUSTEE.
