HOLLY SPRINGS GAZETTE.
T. A. FALCONER, EDITOR AND PUBLISHER. Holly Springs, 3Iissp. Dec. : : : 2, 1841' If Ihe "town authorities" will not stop this firing of guns in the streets al! day and all night, we dont know who can. . A lady from the country came nigh being thrown from her horse, in consequence of these guns and other reasons might be mentioned why it must be stopped. vtrbum sat.' . HOME AFFAIRS. "'Tis pleasant through the loop-holes of retreat To peep at such a work!; to see the stir Of the great Babel, and not to feel the crowd. Yes, it is excellent indeed! Something like an Indian as cending a tree to see buffaloes fight. We are entirely at our self just now, but feel a little poetical and so . forth in spite of us. This world is a queer place, and to a man who never was in it before, absolutely curious. And we are disposed to think that for our portion of this great Babel, we (here we, means the folks of Marshall) have the strangest spot of all. There are several, even several things we can not complain of; and a number of others of which we could in good sooth, speak in praise. V As for the weather every body that has ever been out doors, knows that it is as fickle as a maiden's love; but at this pres ent writing it is sortor bracing. A north-easterly wind, and a few clouds. Our men of tinde and trafic are all smiles. Goods to keep old winter from meddling with all dear human flesh, sell, "or ns they say "go off" like beaf steak and bread in days of a famine. Some of our mechanics, who on the first part of las1 year, wandered enterprisingly forth in search of a better conn" try, have come back again, kind in the praises of Holly Springs. The clatter and clangour of hammer and saw, now reverberate through the bu3y scene. Our streets level and mudless as ever; and our public square is daily alive with men pursuing the various businesses of human life. Wag ons piled with cotton are hourly passing on their way to Mem phis and other shipping points along the great father of wa ter?. Wagons, and other vehicles from our dear sister Ten nessee, furnish us with shoals of good warm socks and janes, foi which they dont care a great deal about taking the mo ney of an anti-bond Statel But that's a small matter of course.

This solemn tribunal mad&Jo tc telling his fellow citizens that all that honor was unmerited on his part but, that he was most monstrous grateful to them for their hospitality casting his eyes over totcards where ihe larbacue was smokiug,)He began his speech as far back as he could he did that probably to get a running start! He roared away like a gray-headed tornado, striving to prove that there was no such party as the Whig, Said if they all would think for a moment they wTould find them selves Democrats' heart, and would shrink, with horror at the thought of being a federalist. Oh massy! The balance of his speech was sedulously devoted to the abuse of the Whig party and the extra session of Congress praising Mr. Ty ler, for his "veto powers" and abusing him for not vetoing. every thing passed by the late Congress. How we did wish that the tmmoital little green mountain boy, S. S. Prentiss, had been here to "say bach" to "little Jimmy." But lah! Tennessee thinks a heep of "Jimmy" and when he merely comes to visit us 'twould be ungenerous'to impose on him in that way! If he had had a little more time yesterday, or the barbacue had not smelt so good, he would have replied to himself! 'Twas amusing to hear him talk' about "patriotic Mississippi" Ah, he was thinking of the time she sent back Prentiss and Word thereby stuffing hs"little aye" down his throat But his excellency enjoyed his dinner better, a pla gued sight, than wc did his speech a pleasant travel to him and his ladv. , . It seems as the cold increases, dissipation increases. That seems strange these nights are desperate for lodging in the streets. We do heartily wish that the temperance Society would take the matter into consideration. The growth of intemperance in this town, ought to be crushed in its strength. If it continue to increase as of late, it will soon make a man drunk to breathe the atmosphere about town. Nothing done, nor likely to be done with our graveyard a melancholy admission it is the remark, of strangers. Our well-tare is terrible! no public well and half the pri vates one out of fix on account'of too much foreign custom the town is already under many obligations to the Board. The members and officers of the ..Holly Springs Lyceum and Debating Society," will meet at the offico of Clayton &. Sterns, on Saturday evening, December 4th. Members par ticularry requested to attend, as important business is likely to come up. : ; . - By reference to our advertising columns, it will be seen that Messrs McQuilkin and Owen have just received a large assortment of groceries. We would advise our friends to give them a call. As they have requested us to say that they are determined to use every effort to please the public. Gen. Winfield Scott has written a laborious circular to the people of the United States discusses very important constitutional questions, involving' Whig principles and says that he is willing to be our next President.

Our Whig brethern seem to insist that Tyler's vetoes caused the great change that is said to be going on. But we do contend that that is the very reason why there is no change in the country. It is said to be an absolute and incontrovertible proposition Jn the philosophy of the human mind, that a man may tell a lie, over and repeatedly, until he will become to believe it and he will be about the hottest to knock another clown if he hiw ktwin... m iri..n.;f to noUTsf nslray from the truth.

Instea'd of trying cases as" the law requires, made a case of itself! It seems that our district abounds more in smart men than any other in the State having provided itselfwith a couple of Judges, "contrary to the. statute in such cases made and provided." His Honor Judge Huling, be lieving there had been no vacancy in the office when the late election was held, occupied the Bench betimes on Monday morning, and left his Honor Jas. M. Howry, the Judge under the late election, to stand up to hold his pari of the Court. 1 was a curious Court (onsiderin! When we arrived in the Court House, the idea where we were and the scene which , we saw, completely sickened us! His Honor Judge Huling, however, having possession, which is nine points in the law, kept his antogonist for the gown at bay. While the "Hon ours" alternately ordered one another to jail, the lawyers from various latitudes and altitudes of the house, were labor ing the constitutional question.. To the shame of all behold, ers politics seemed to draw the line between the fraternity! Every moment we expected the volcanic fires "of a glorious row, to burst forth and bathe the throne of Justice in blood! The Sheriffs, more judicious than most of the persons con cerned, especially the Judges, refused to obey cither of the "Courts," further than to adj iurn them. The clerk, also, put his pen behind bis earr and waited until he miht sec something to record without disgracing his books.- J?e nTath Qke bar. anI Courts, boz& dawn, without boil- j 0VGr and his Honor Judge Huling adjourned his Court until nine o'clock, Tuesday morning; and his Honor Judge Howry, adjourned his until two o'clock same day.

In this manner we have no Circuit Court-for Marshall this Term.

" ' - - . For thellclly iSpringsGazcUe. Mr. Editor: I hasten upon the first opportunity afford ed me io lay my burden of gratitude al the feet of "1 Bache lor" a critic of evident power and correctness, who made, I presume, his debut in a late number of your paper. As I am aware that it is unusual for an author to appear in defence of his own productions ; upon this occasion I ask pardon of the learned public for doing so in behalf of Oiino. "A Bachelor" has endeavored to mix up satire, sar casm, wit, humor and irony, in his profound examinations of one of the poetic productions of 'Oii.vo." This is a dose which I do not choose to swallow, because in the compound ing of such potent druggs, I must first know that it is not done by a quack. , . This squeamish, fastidious old bacheloi finds fault of Ohno's verses on two accounts first of his metaphorical or figura tive expressions. "Scales to the eye of morn" is ahead of him I should have rather supposed that a bachelor, who of course lm m m, kimJL othmg to 4fo-mIii.Iin. L rmmJ, .i.U l. ... er charged him with plaginrisw, than, impropriety! But h. has given us (I mean the world) an entirely new idea and that is a "poetic firniament" climbing a firmament! Shaks peare speaks of young day standing "tip toe" upon a mountain top! Why does not our Bachelor give Shakspoaro a drub bring for giving toes to day! Job speaks of the eye lids of the morning, why not grumble about that? , Oh! these rusty, musty, fusty, crusty old bachelors! And I perceive an obsti nate determination in this old fellow not to understand the verses upon which he displayed his ingenuity. As I believe he belongs to the juckey club, he cannot be "much al a loss to tell jvhat is meant by the expression "Running against time.11 If that be a proper phrase, why is not Ihe sense of "fighting against time,", observable? But that the world may not be at a less to sec that he is the very quintessence of smartness, he ha given us a sample of his poetry; which is most ridiculously sweet and melodious. The most wonderful excellence oi this production consists in several particulars. It is entitled. "A looker on My fire side." Now from the title one might properly anticipate something, familiar, -social, or domestic some good "fire side" joke, such as old bachelors frequently rehearse on cold winter nights, to drive away the horrors of their solitude. Now is that so? No! Then listen' "How SKCCl was the eve when ve met, , How cheerily passed its fleet hours,' ' I turn and look back with regret,' On that meeting Eliaz of ours." These rhyming groans wc find under the head of "The Looker on" Looking on what?' Not looking on the Angel form:of Eliza!. J3ut he "turns and looks back!" May be he is looking on the .ire! But that wont do, for he says il was jisweereve"jasi 'o course had no ire, ,. OhOrpheusl Spoons! v-Carr any of the girls condescend to tell what this creature means? "Musa viihi eausas incmora," This unmarried critic takes occasion to complain of Ou zo's measure, without informing any body wherein his objec tions consist., Ho can' spend a few moments of his leisure! when sitting alone by his fire scanning the following lines, '-- . - VOn that meeting Eliza of ours." ... Hpw drear are tfcc hours to mc" One might think from the last verse of this critic poet, and bachelor that he was pretty near the half . way house on the high road to distraction. In parting with this case I - take the liberty of remarking that as my friend has been . ,remonious(y kicked by "Eliza" which he admits, and there bcingno estimate of how many more have- bestowed upon him like gratuitous information of &h-run$uitablene$$t he may reasonably expect from the uccesslsf his first tilm that the Muses will servo hira likewise, for IVr ir - n TO IIKI.II.V If I ever fjrgtt The lat lime thit wc This warm heart mas: ::.. cms; -: Tho' thy brow wzi o'er z.-r.
