foUufllt $ftt rf35. BY J. V. & . B. O'BKICX. LOU D O N : TUESDAY APRIL 11. 1S54. We iusert this week a letter from a prominent member of Congress from Tennessee, on the Nebraska bill. We bespeak for it a careful reading. It is due such distinguished gentlemen that their constituents hear their ''grounds for opposition" to the Nebraska bill before they censure them too harshly. So far as we have noticed the getting up, and pro gress of the bill, we confess, we see nothing therein to be gained by the South, while there is much to be gained by the North, in the shape of lie abolition States being rushed iuto the Union to vote down Southern measures. Wm. G. McAnoo, Esq., of Knoxville, announces himself as a candidate for re-election to the office of Attorney Central for The second circuit. Mr. McAnoo was elected by the Legislature two years since for six years, but by the recent act changing the manner of electing Judges and Attomies General, etc., his election is now committed to t...

He stayed not for speech, but with sabro and gun, He rushed into Turkey, tho' cause there was none; Bat when he got to the old iron gate, He found certain legions which urged him to. wait, For down by the Danube stood Omar Tacha, Prepared to encounter our big- booted Czar.

BY J. XY. & S. B. O'BRIEN'. LOUDON: TUESDAY :::::::::::: APRIL 18, 1S54. "A RFVER MAN" AGAIN. "Truth is omnipotent and like a two edged ' sword, cuts its way" A River Man says he is "sorry the editor of the Free Press has gone into spasms." "It seems the compunctions of a guilty conscience his brought to his (our) vision ghosts and hob goblins," and sofurth. That he is truly "sorry" we will not for one moment doubt. But that sorrow is not that we have gone into spasms. It is the effect of the facts we presented last week, which he could not deny. And that which "stems" to him to be the apparitiou of ghosts and hobgoblins to us, . is only "the compunctions of his own guilty con science," it he has a conscience; a sensibility of the truth of our "assertions" last week, which, "like the old Dutchman's musket, made the game flutter." He says we "hunted up Merrill and supposed a case entirely irrevolent meaning Irrelevant we suppose tJ the subject:" and adds, "but let him have the be...

AGRICULTURAL. CULTIVATION OF THE PEAR TREE. Tie principal reasons deduced by the or obardiit for neglecting, or refusing to plant m many pear trees aa will bear EOtne proportion to the number of big apples, peach or other treet, are that the first cost of the pear treo ia generally more than doable that of the apple; it is longer in coming into bearing; it ia more liable to leaf or sap blight, &c. These objections may look formidable, but they are not insurmountable. It ia true that the cost at the nursery of 100 pear trees, is more than that of 200 apples trees; and this must continue to be so, for the ex pense of raiding pear trees for a suitable size for market is much the greater; but when plant ed in tho orchard they require no more atten tion than other fruit trees, in order to make them do their best, they require cultivation and attention far beyond what is usually extended to them. A well cultivated pear tree is as prolific as an apple tree of the same size, and the fru...

LOUDON": Tuesday :::::::::::::::: May 2, 1854. JOHN A. STRANGE. Once more it bcs become the painful duty of the members of tfce Eromaibesean Society to'pay a last tribute of respect to a deceased and much esteemed friend and brother. The cad intelligence has reached us that Jons A. Strange ia numbered with the dead. The fa tal shaft has fiowu and in this instance has struck a shining mark, for indeed a more intel lectual and more promising young man, a more zealous friend and a more worthy brother has rarely fallen a victim to the "King of Ter rors. Mr. Straxge was our fellow student for seve ral sessions, during which time he con ducted himself in such a manner a3 to win the highest esteem of both students and Teach ers. He repaired from this place to the Milita ry Institute at Drennon Spring?, Kentucky; where the Typhoid fever brought upon him a premature death. Is it so, that he who a little whilw since, was so buoyant and full of hope for future usefulness whose voice was heard ...

P, ft rr guuuun j AGRICULTURAL. HEARING CALVES. Herdsmen and other who have had some experience in raising young cattle, have ex pressrd various opinions in relation to the most proprr course or mode of treatment to be pur iued, some contending with a pood deal of strin gency for the natural way as they term it i. e., permuting them to enjoy the company of their kns til four, five, or -ten months ac, while others assert with equal pertinacity, that the better way is to seperate them from the cows when a few days old, and raise them "by hand." The farmer of course will reflect upon the re lative advantages of the two methods, consider the claims of eac h to preference before he a dopts either. Cut after all, whether the one or ihcother is most expensive will depend wholly, or in a great measure, on cirsumstances of time and place.

Of Peaches I can find none; and of Apples a few in comparatively low situations, and those diseased, internally from the effects of the frost, and externally, from depredation of insects, consequently a very small proportion, if any, can come to maturity. Of other fruits I am unable to speak. The Wheat crop so far as 1 have had a chance to exami...
