Advertising or Job .Work, re requested to call and settle their accounts by the first of January. We have been publishing the Aiteai. now for nearly twelve months, and this is the firBt time we have called on any of them, either publicly or privately. We detest a continual dun, and would not do so now if it was not that we owe money, and cannot pay it unless those owing us will "respond to this call. We hopo, and believe, that they win.;-1 ' v DCy We are only able to present our readers with a half sheet this week from the fact that we have had such a press of job work as to be unable to get up a sufficiency of matter for the paper. We will have more force hereafter, and will be able to get along without resorting to this step. NEGRO INSURRECTIONS. Our exchanges come to us literally filled with notices of attempted insur rections amongst the negroes. Down about Clarksville much excitement prevails. Several negroes have been killed, and many arrested and confin ed in jail. In the States of Missouri and Mary land, as well aa others, much disquiet ude prevails on this account. Strin gent regulations are being enforced, and it is hoped that law and order will prevail. There is only one way , to account for this, and that is, we have aboil tionists here in the South who do not scruple to take every advantage and use every incentive to induce the ne- groos to rebel against government They should, and certainly will, be properly punished whenever an wher ever found. We are glad to learn that our Town Council have taken the matter in to consideration, and established a strong patrol, who seem to be perform ing the duty as the necessity of the case demands. This is exactly right. ICT3 See the advertisement of a "de sirable residence for sale," in another column. Mr. Colyar has moved to the country, and wishes to sell his proper ty in town.

It is creditable as being brief, and the last its author will ever write. It reviews the history of the slavery agitation, and throws all the blame on the North. It claims the recent elec tion as an endorsement of the policy of the present administrasion, and winds up like Gen. Jackson's, exclaiming "I leave this great country prosperous, peaceful and happy." So mote it bel DC?" We clip with pleasure the fol lowing merited compliment to Col. Sands from the Nashville Patriot: "Sands." The name of "Sands" has become a decided feature of the age. Few, indeed, are there that are more prominent or significant. It is not our purpose, however, to speak of the va rious personages by that name, who have figured so conspicuously du ring the present century. We pass by that of the fair Parasienue who, over the nomme de plume of George Sands, has contributed so largely to the polite literature of the day; and Sands, whose name is perpetuated in his own Sarsaparilla, as well as that of Johnny Sands of precious memory; and come at once to speak of another Sanks, known to this locality. We mean J. E. Sands, that price of con ductors, who runs upon the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad. A more affable, courteous and polite gentle man, or careful, safe and accommoda ting officer, would be hard to find.

DC?3 Will some one of the school girls in the Mary Sharp College or the Winchester Female Academy write out a correct answer to the following QUESTION? At close of day as home I strayed, I overtook a rosy maid; Her form was fair, her step wns light Her eyes shone like the stars of night Her words were mild, and sweetly fell; Her laugh was like a silver bell. Well pleased was I with her to walk More pleased still with her to talk We talked of birds, of bees and bowers, Of shady trees, and blooming flowors: Thus talked we on just as we chose, When suddenly our ages rose. How old are you?" she said to me, I quick replied "I'm twenty-three; And now would it be more than fair, If you should tell how old youare?" She looked at me, then shook her head, And 'tween a laugh and smile she said "One-half my age, and four times four Plus just by three, and one-half more, Extract the cube root, it will bo One-fifth my age, as you will see:" And then Bhe turned and said"good-bye," And went her way and so did I. Come now, ye tyros, tell, I pray, How old she was by Algebra. THE VALUE OF TIME. How much ought we to prize the gift of time, for yet a little while and the commissioned Archangel will lift up his hand and proclaim "that time shall j be no more." Then however anxious- j ness that is borne on the countenance ly may some negligent mortals wish, ! 0f a wife nnd mother! How do the and beg for a little more time if only parent and child, the brother and sis for a few moments to repent in these j ter, the mistress and the servant, dwell abused opportunities will never re- j with delight on those cheerful looks, turn. A truly wise man counts his '. those confiding smiles that beam from minutes, allowing no time to pass un- j the eye and burst from the inmost soul used, for well he knows that time is ' Gf those who arc near and dear! How life. Make the most of your minutes, ! it hastens the return of the father, light- says Aurelius, and be useful while you may. Understand thoroughly the real valuo of time, and enjoy its every. mo ment, by never putting off till to-morrow what can readily be done to-day. Let us read the actions of our lives as well as our books, and learn to divide our time rightly. The great and wiso King Alfred is recorded to have divi ded the day and night into three parts. Eight hurs be allotted for sleep and food, eight hours for business mid re creation, and eight ho appropriated to study nnd prnycr. To come but once into the world and triflo away our right uo of it, making a burthen of what was given for a blessing, is, to s i y the least of it, very strango infatuation. Time is what we all want most but use worst, but must account for it when time shall bo no more. There is but little use to drive time away by foolish divcrlisemrnts, which flies away so swiftly of itself, and which, when gone, can never be recalled. An idle person is a sort of living monster when nil nature is busy around him. How sad it is to hoar people complain- of the day hanging heavily on their bands, or that they do not know what to do! It is really wicked for civilized people to say this, because they have the duties of life constantly before them, and can exer cise their minds, if not their bodies, in the never-ending pursuit of knowledge and improve themselves every hour. There is no man but hath a soul, and if he attend carefully to it, he need not complain for want of business. Where there are so many temptations to resist, so many inclinations to watch, so many graces to improve, surely a man need never be idle, for all these things require much time. Vespasia n made it a practice to review at night the actions of the past day, during most of his life.- and whenever a day was passed without a good action, ho wrote in his diary, "I have lost a day.' If t ime, like money, could be laid away while not in use, there would be an excuse for idleness. Time is one of the most precious jewels we possess, but its real value is known but by few until its close is near and its loss cannot be redeemed. The present on ly is ours. The uncertainty adds much to the brevity of time, and its velocity urges its improvement the more. Seneca remarked: "We all complain of the brevity of time, but use it as though we had too much." . HAPPY HOME. Who wrote the following we know not. But whoever did, estimated right ly the spirit and conduct which makes the family happy and inviting. An unpleasant home, with fretful and fault-finding companions, is next akin to the perdition of which the Bible speaks. Home should not be unhap py. Hotter infinitely break it up, and scatter its elements, than live amid the burning flames of anger, disgust, and discontent. Unhappy families, read and ponder well on the following extract. Is there hope that your cir cle can be impressed If not, sad and dark is your future! "In a happy home there ivill be no fault-finding, overbearing spirit then; will be no peevishness nor fretfulness. Unkindness will net dwell in the heart or be found on the tongue. O, the tears, the sighs, the wasting of life, and health and strength, and time, of all that is to be most desired in a happy home, occasioned merely by unkind words! A celebrated writer remarks to this effect, namely, that fretting and scolding seem like tearing the flesh from the bones, and that we have no more right to be guilty of this sin than we have to curse, and swear, and steal. In a perfectly happy home all selfishness will be remeved. Even as Christ pleased not himself," so the members of a happy home will not seek first to please themselves. Cheer fulness is another ingredient in a hap py home. How much a sweet smile, emanating from a heart fraught with love and kindness, contribute to ren- : der a home happ) 1 How attracting, how soothing is that sweet eheerful- cns the cares of tho mother, renders it morc easy for youth to resist tempta- j tion; and, drawn by the chords of af fection, how it induces them, with lov ing hearts, to return to ihat parental roof! O, that parents would lay this subject to heart, that by untirin? ef fort they should so far render flome more happy, that their children nd do mestics shall not seek hnppinrs in for- bidden paths!" Tiib Ciioims oi Love Religion is the golden chain which God lets down from heaven, with a link for every per son who wills, inviting each to take hold, that y on may bo drawn by it to himself. You can readily perceive how disagreeable it would be to be linked to one whom you disliked and drawn by him-whithersoever ho wills; but you would gladly be drawn and guided in every thing by the person you ardently loved. Our time ought to be measured by our actions, not by years: then would each man receive a proper amount of respect from his fellow creatures. CP Sec advertisement of ''Land for Sale." "A Haw with a Thousand Strings" It was Dr. Watts who first 'sung of a harp of u thousand strings, us fol lows: "Our life contains a thousand strings, And iitrn ifone bo gono, Slrnngu that a linrp of a tliousnnd strings, Should keep in tune no long." 1 saw tli o moon rise clear O'er hills and vales of snow, .
