Warner Monro, jr., deliver ed hin last sermon hero for this conference year, Sunday night. Jt was an able effort, and was appre ciated by a good sized congregation. Wherever lie may go, the well wishes of our people go with him. It is a matter of considerable comment, the, way the lion. John Wesley Gaines and his colleagues "skipped" J Jen ton County in the apportionment of committer for the celebration of the home-coming of our First Tennessee Regiment. This county, wo think, furnished as loyal soldiers as any that John W. did remember, aud t he fact that ho left us off his list does not, by any means, signify that we will not be iu Nashville, or that we will not celebrate. "We will bo there "on the spot" with you Johnnie. Big Sandy, November 8. FROM WHEATXKYVILLE. Special correspondence. Albeit Melton left last week for parts unknown. James Whitley will move this vreek to Weakley County, "We welcome Rev. Samuel Pruett, of Claud, who has moved among us. Rev. Mr. Watts will preach his farewell sermon here next Sunday. The timber industry is interfer fering somewhat with the work of gathering crops. We are informed that R. E. Far mer has sold his river farm to I). B. Holland aud will locate on Sul phur Creek. If the Way correspondent was a little moro observing he could not help noting Wheatleyville's great improvements. The next move, I think, will be to incorporate the town. Wh en we consider the cost of re districting the county aud building new school houses, we think that it would be the part of wisdom for the county court to go slow in the mat ter for the present, at least.

Under tho supervision of A. I). Vick the Sunday school here was reorganized last Sunday. There was unfairly good attendance. B. F. l'linec has sold his Dry Creek farm to A. D. Vick, and we are glad to learn that Henry Bom ar will remain there another year. While we have never intimated that we were in favor of raising the school tax, it seems the Dry Creek correspondent is ready to abuse a man if he expresses an opinion and to call him a coward if he remains neutral. We will say for his satis faction that we are not in favor of any increase of taxes until there is un improvement of our school sys tem. Then we should have a six months school, aud if we had a com pulsory school law the correspond ent aforesaid would be in school now instead of aspiring to the life of a benedict Be has employment, it is true, but, like Jacob of old, he may be compelled (compulsion?) to work seven years and seven again before he gets Rachel.

We regret to learn that Eugene E. Travis, of Camden, who has been connected with the- Gazette for some time, has severed his connec tion with that paper. He is a hust ling newspaper man, and a credit to the journalistic corps of laborers. He made many friends while here, and your correspondent wishes him measureless sucee.vs wherever he may go and in whatever he may en gage. Brother, we give a lamenta ble tip to your departure. G. R .

There was a formal meeting of the redistrict ing commission here Monday. The commission is com posed of J. II. Hudson, W. T. Mor ris, D. G. Hudson, S. T. Presson and J. M. Castile, and was appoint ed at the October term of quarterly court to investigate the advisability of redisricting Benton County into school districts, and report at the January term of court. Justice J. 11. Hudson informs us that the estimated cost of redisrict ing the county will not exceed 8300, aud he thinks it can be done for r.t least $r0 less than the estimate. Another estimate is that with '11 schools in the county the decrease of the number of schools (taking the 1800 apportionment per school as a basis) will in one year meet all expenses of redisricting and build ing houses, and give each district the same number of mouths school as taught this year without any ad ditional expense to the tax-payers. In other words, a reduction of the number of schools would, on the basis of the present apportionment per school, leave about 01,000 to be applied in meeting the expenses in cident to the change. Another estimate is that many of the houses can remain as they are at present, ethers may be moved a short distance, and it may not be necessary to rebuild many of the school houses.

Editor Till'; Cll i; in ci.V:: I notice in your issue of last week the Dry Creek correspondent sug gests myself as a prop.-r person to call a mass-meeting at Camden for the purpose of formulating plans to give our county boys who are re turning with the First Tennessee Regiment a fitting reception. In response will say that I appreciate the mention and am sorry, indeed, that my duties here will hinder my being at Camden to assist in wel coming the brave boys. However, I am eager to contribute in. any way possible for this' purpose, and I will be glad to join a reception commit tee from Benton County when they come to this city; I would suggest that a movement be started immediately by the citi izens of Camden. Every town and county in the State will make prop er arrangements to receive their boys, and Benton County, I am sure, will do the right thing. , Now is tho time to begin work, and I trust a .mass-meeting will be held at once.
