doll, who can only ogle, sigh and aim
perf It appears to us tha.t men are
to blama for most of the faults of wo
roon. We always regret to he?. a
man who has matrimonial Views
say of a girl, she don't ver; much, but
she li amiable, has a pretty face, and
after all, ff I mti society, It li ensy
enough to tlr.d it anywhere. A man
has no right to marry a woman with
Intentions so widely diverse from
those he professes to entertain, when
he vows to be a husband I he is res
ponsibly blame-worthy for the conse
quences that result from such an act ;
brsido, it is a very mistaken notion
some men seem to have, that a fool is
easily managed s there is no descrip
tion of animal so difficult to manage;
what they lack in brains they are
sure to make up in obstinacy, or u low
kind of cunning. Then a pretty fuco
cannot last forever, and the old ago of
a brainless beauty wo shudder to con
template, even at a distance. Wo
men aim to bo what men oftcnost
like to see them j you may, therefore
easily gauge the masculine standard
by tho majority of women ono daily
meets. Heaven pity tho exceptions I
they must find their mates in another
world than this.
Originality is a very slippery, . in
definable sort of quality, supposed to
belong to certain thoughts, but when
we comu to mini) 20 it, wo unalzye it
all away, Solomon, many hundreds
of years ago, suid that there was
"nothing new under thn sun," and
told pretty nearly tho truth. The
most "original " poems ane stories
urn merely o!.l incidents and charac
ters, in new circumstances, told in
ne.kv combinaiionsof old words. Wo
lutva ul'len wondered whether all the
iilens possible for man to conceive,
have not been thought of over and
over again whether all tin notions
of me.n'.-il'.i'c L ive not been dono before,
hy viiriouM persons. Thcro are many"!
t urious instances of unconscious pla
giarism, in literature, which must
havo been tho result of s'miinrity of
mind, or u similar train of thought,
common to two person.", writing at
litferent times. There are also nu
merous cases where two persons havo
conceived the namo idea at almost
the sumo ins'nnr, and embodied it in
nearly an identical manner.
Many are the erroneous views for
med and low; entertained by one. coun
try, relative to another. Perhaps
these United States uflord an rxnm
j)lu the most portinonl. With few
exceptions, we, our institutions in
xhort, all that belongs to us have
been submitted, not to the fair and
just statement of the historian not
to the calm reasoning of tho philoso
pherbut to 1 ho ex parte report, and
shallow and warped judgment of the
prejudiced or inculpable writer. It
would be a good thing, were every
person who takes up a book purpor
ting to describe a fori igu land, and
its people, to it-member how power
ful a sentiment self-love U in nil of
us; and bow likely ninety-nino out of
every hundred men, assuming the
character of the historian, ore not to
view mutier.- as they are, but jiiat as
their own passious sway them. Petty
pique, an accidental affront, a tempo
rary inconvenience these, or even
one of these, may have diverted the
pen from tho record of truth. After
all, with rare exceptions, it is not tho
man writing of a country, so much as
the man writing of himself .
Great Natural Phenomenon. The
Oswego (N. Y.) Palladium Rives an
account of a meteoric muss that fell
the other dy upon the farm of Hor
ace Surger, causing intense conster
nation among the people. It descen
ded at an angle of about 30 degrees
from the horizon, and tore up the
ground terribly where it struck, and
crushed the trees around like pipe
stems. It is said to cover half nn
acre, is very irregular in shape, and
rises at some points to 00 and 80 feet
Inhiphr, and is believed to be imbed

THE W AH. ,.
A real war is waging now in the
old world. Austria is suffering, and
France winning the laurels and spoils.
The Austrian! have evacuated many
of their strongholds in their retreats.
The battle of Magenta haa served to
encourage tha Allies and terrify the
Austrian. ' In fact, that is one of tha
most terrible conflicts of modern times.
A correspondent of the London News,
writing un'Ier date of June 7th, gives
the following item in relation to bow
Cue field appeared aAer the battle.
He says s
Yestcrdav evening, not without
great difficulty I succeeded in getting
hero, to Inspect the Meiu 01 me glori
ous battle fought on Saturday last.
Mv nen is not adequate to describe
tho honrt rending scene which sur
rounds me. Trees thrown down by
the dreadful effect of artillery; heaps
of dead bodies, human limbs scatter
ed about, carriages broken, farm hou-
sea burnt, crops trampled, vineyards
devastated, houses plundered such is
the deplorable sight which met my ryes
since my arrival in this town. Town,
however, Magenta is no more, ihe
small inn whence I am now writing
these linen, bears marks of tho tre
mendous struggle, for it was thrice ta
ken and retaken during the nction.--Not
a peicc of furniture is to be found,
not even a chair to sit upon."
Tho following epistolary effusion
hails from a lady friend in an adjoin
ing county, who seems to be sumo
what "plceacd" with our humble ef.
forts to make the Journal interesting.
Sho evidently will not think hard
of us fur giving publicity to her letter,
especially as she voluntarily grants us
the privilege in the mid bene subjoined.
We shall certainly send her the Home
Journal, and if she should still con
tinue, to bo "plccscd" with the "pee
ses" therein contained, our wish will
be realized. Most assuredly we don't
intend to criticise what sho has writ
ten not us. And as this is tho first
time sho ever "rule to an editor," no
doubt she feels anxious to sen how her
writing looks in print, and will thank
us for gratifying her anxiety in that
respect. Here is her letter, all except
residence and her name.

Tho following brief letter is from
one who has tried both of tho routes
to Becrshebn, and who is competent
to decide on the turrits of each. How

is no danger of anybody going via

Tkacy Citv, June 20th, 60.
Dear Sltittcr : 1 have just returned
from a trip to (Jeerdicba via McMinn-
ville. Being anxious to see the route
to lleersheba, so much talked of in the
"AIcMiiiiivillo Era," I start.-d from
McMinnvillg in a bu'gy, and when
we got to tho foot of the Mountain,
after patisi.ig over a vrry rough road,
we were obliged to get out and walk
tho greatest part of the way up, and
I am credibly iuf irumd that passen
gers by the stage coaches, to Becrshe
bn, have to get out and foot it for
three miles up the Mountain, and it
is as much us four horses can do to
pull an empty stage coach up that
hill. Passengers are now preferring
the Sewauee Koute, and very few, if
nny, arc going by way ofMcMinnville

Herndon was, or what he did, and, so
far as the obelisk goer, the merits of
the true man who save hi life to

A Man arretted for a Murder Com
milled twenty four yean ago. '
A striking instance, says the Mom.
phis Bulletin of the 81sf, of the ctt-
tainty of punishment which, sooner or
later, never fails to follow upon the
commission of murder, came to our
knowledge yesterday. It seems that
ajittlo over twenty-four years ago,
a man named C. B. Ivey, residing in
Roans county, East Tennessee, con
ceived a dislike to a sister-in-law re
tiding in that county, and murdered
her in a deliberate and cold-blooded
manner. He was arrested for the
crime, tried, convicted, but owing to
some palliating ciroumstance connec
ted with the affair, Instead of being
executed was sentenced to the peni
tentiary for life. Shortly after his in
carceration in Jail, however, he effec
ted his escape and made his way to
Arkansas, whero he settled on the Ar
kansas river, and resided up to within
a few weeks past. During his resi
dence in Arkansas a period of some
twenty-two years he married a high
ly respectablo lady of that State, be
came the father of a family, the ow
ner of a large plantation, and was
honored by his fellow citizens with
the post of magistrate for a term of
some ten years and Ihe duties of which
position he discharged with fidelity
and to the general acceptation of the
citizens. Ho also became connected
with, and for years was a leading
member of ono of the prominent
Christian denominations of the day.
Surrounded hy his family, possessed
with an abundance of this world's
goods, and enjoying the esteem and
confidence of his neighbors and a
lurgc circle of friends, he lived in fan
cied security having long since ceased
to fear that the hand of justice would
ever trace him to his far removed po
sition from the scene of the murder he
had committed. But the appearance
at his home, about two weeks since,
ofnn officer, armed with a requisition
from the Governor of tho State whose
laws he had outraged, at once and for
ever dissipated all his assurances of
safety ,and without resistance he yiel
ded himself up to the official's custo
dy. Ho arrived in this city (Mem
phis) last evening, in charge of tho
person who traced him out, and will
bo conveyed at onco to Roane county,
taking to-day's train on tho Memphis
und Charleston Railroad.
The Cincinnati Commercial of the
25th says :
"A hurried trip into Iowa has given
us an opportunity of seeing and hear
ing considerable of the condition and
prospects of tho growing crops thro'
out the intervening country and the
West generally. Nearly everything
(hut can bo desired in reference to the
yield of very variety of produce seems
to bo promised ; and never before,
probably, aid tho farmers of the West
give expression to such earnest grati
tude as they do now. All farm-work
is progressing with a hearty will
every available means is made to tell
in driving forward the pressing work.
The sceno is in great contrast to the
display made two) ears since, when
harvest labor was ignored and the il
lusive charms of speculations in lots
and lands were engrossing the atten
tion of all classes of men. A spirit of
contentment and satisfaction more
generally prevails now, having sup
planted that of feverish and restless
excitement. The grievous burthens
of oppressive debt will soon be re
moved from tho West ; and when
Western farmers nro once relieved of
that load, the progress of the entire
country in material improvement and
development, will be in a ratio never
heretofore known. The energies of
the population now accumulated in
the West, having never till now been
so fully applied to expanding original
sources of wealth, the results of their
labor will soon be a surprise even to
Tho Hunlsville (Ala..) Independent
of last month, says that a Mr. Lopine
was pnssing through Mr. Thomas S.
M'Calley's farm, a mile or two from
town, and immediatly on getting over
a fence, a large land Moccasin snake,
fully five feet nine inches in length
prang upon him from the bushes and
wrapped itself around one of his legs,
attempting at the same time to strike
him with its fangs. Mr. L. knocked
it off with a bit of wood he had in his
hand, and hardly expected another at
tack, but the vicious rascal again
sprang upon him from a distance of
some four feet, and the second time
tightly coiled itself around his leg.
By great exertion, he at lart tuccee
ded in getting his foot on the monster,
and at once dispatched him.
