Fkikrso.v, Jan. 11. This week pre.
scuts no social topic for me to dwell up
on, so I will bave to write upou a legal
one. The lawsuit between Davidson,
Napier and Duke, was tried before
K-q. Geo. N. McKeunou, Saturday, at
V. M. Grey's store. This suit was quite
a complicated one. Duke first sueu Dr.
Davidson tor damage done his aud
Napier's crop by stock, on account of
bad fencing, which according to his
testimony the doctor proposed to mku
good. Davidson then sued Napier for
balance due on reuu Southall and
I'adgHt were tho attorney's, the former
fur Duke aud the latter for Davidson.
It apiwarcd to be a jollification rather
than a lawsuit, for the house was
crowded witli jollv spectators and the
contestant themselves were in high
spirits. About a dozen witnesses
were sworn and right amusing was it
when the lawyers cross questioned
some of them. ""The J t'n. Fat" asked
a witness which he thought best f ir
poMtoes; for cattle to tiaino them or to
plow theai, aud whether the tii.s fitt
ing tho tops uA stopped the potatoes
frnni growing; another ne asked how
many potatoes he made on the pli.ee

why ihisday was more important lhn

agaiu suggested itself last Monday
wnile watching the busy throng upou

solve the question and give us all an
additional interest iu the day. It is
not one of those days made sacred by
some great deed or mighty change or
revolution, but a dav mutually agreed
upon by sober-minded citizens to meet

farmers, merchants, mechanics, traders
and in tact every avucatiou aud pro

not attempt to estimate all the good
done or detail the drawbacks of the
day. But just here I wish to uotice one
sale that was ot considerable btnelii, al
though only one mule was sold at a very
reasonable prb-e. The mule changed
hands about 1 o'clock, and by 4 o'clock
1 learned that the money for'that tuulo
had paid six debts; and "I am satisfied

stock man, miners, poultry,' b e and"

inhkiiigan exhibit ol their pmaucts
without incurring uiy expense iti the
State, 1 would suggest that the spouse
of one man be pai l to the WorM's Fair
t make proper arrangements lor secur
ing space and taking care of ll a-iicles '
sent, aud to remain iu charge of any
and all exhibits from Tennessee that
may be Introduced to him. 'I he cost
and tax to each exhibitor would be far
less thau for the exhibitor to pnv for
his own space and time and bear till his
own expenses tfnd to make bis c"i ex

such a plan and to save expense 10 the
exhibitor and to have Tennessee repre
sented at the World's Fair. Mv ad

bo pleased to open correspondency with
any one desiring to make exhibit".
