IMMIGRATION, In another column is an extract showing the consummation of a deal which will materially add to the pop ulation of a neighboring state and apparently of that cjass of people which no, state can afford to Jose and any 1)9 glad tq obtain. Put wa do not see any colonies cpmingintQ Ten? nessee. Why is it? Judging from appearances, the reign of the promo ter of companies and so called capi ' talists has paised, and the hraii) and muscle, bone and sinew of the coun try is taking hold. Does Tennessee a,nt any of this kind, qr is the millionaire the only one to be desired, qr do people avoid the State ? If so, for what cause? Is it bad laws, poor titles, poor educa tional advantages? If so, why has pot some one tried tq remedy object ions which keep ou,t enterprise and settles. Thp Governor of this State should know as well as those qf our neighbors any hindrances tq militate against te State but we do not hear from the Qqyernqr of Tennessee any recommendation tq amend laws, like the Governor qf Alabama, qr being interested in securing desirable colon ists like the popular EJx-Goyernor of Georgia. Looking at it from our standpoint Tennassee is a veritable Sleepy Hol low, and wants younger men and leis politics tq saye it from getting quite tq the tail end qf the procession. . i I r gciiooi. We want n this State a law requiring compulsory attendance at some school, at least six months in every year, fcr all un dertheage of fifteen. We be lieve also, t'it tet books used in the public schools should be furnished by the school directors from a tax laid direct in each county, as an economical meas lire and a saving to the tax-payers. We had hoped that the eervanta of the peop'e, their representatives to the general as- pembly, would have allowed the constitution of the State to be re vised, hut they coul4 not allow it, br;iug to busy in other matters which are not an hnor ;o the statu. jS the people ol Ten ties see must wait uutil ;heir servants allow fh"hi to bring up the eons j stituMOuto tho requirements of the ne Had the Oon-titutwnal reyion been allowed, wn hd determined to make an etibrt to point out to the convention, 6ome things which would bench' t the p ople I in te particular matter ot eduoas j tion, aiid which. we believe is the i duty of every ci i?en to roster in evdry way possible.

As. one of our young mon was wending his way home from Sabbath school last Sunday, he met with an experience which he thought worthy to be embalmed in verse, and accor. dingly wrote the following qn the fly-leaf of his hymn book, There is a large, ferocious goat, Whose Christian name is Billy, lie butted me beneath the cqat And nearly knocked me silly; Oh! if you valine life and limb, Do n't tritle, gentle youth, with him, lie 's full of Satan to the brim, This goat whose name is Billy.
